In the month of August and the heat is unavoidable, why not beat the heat with a Habitat Maze kids pool slide toy? This way you will not let the warmth be a bummer for your child’s summer birthday party.
If you don’t have a pool at your home, renting an inflatable water slide will also make the pool party work in your own backyard, too. Sprinklers and a slip and slide are a less expensive option but they can still create a water wonderland. During pool time classic games like Marco Polo, volleyball or basketball always make for great activities. Whether at home or in a public pool, remember to make sure you have enough adults supervising the kids for safety while they are in the water.
By the mid 1890s, it was normal for baseball players to wear gloves in the field. Baseball gloves have grown progressively larger since their inception. A glove is typically worn on the non-dominant hand, leaving the dominant hand for throwing the ball. The shape and size of the baseball glove is governed by official baseball rules.
The baseball glove has come a long way in over the past century. Today, gloves are made more precisely and more efficiently. For an example, the left handed first base mitt is designed for a first baseman to field and catch throws more efficiently. There are still many advancements coming in the age of the baseball glove.
The black drum is a saltwater fish similar to its cousin, the red drum. Though most specimens are generally found in the 5 – 30 lb range, the black drum is well known as the largest of all the drum family. The black drum is usually found in or near brackish waters.

After reaching maturity by the end of their second year, black drum spawn in and around estuarine waters. Be prepared with your electric filet knife in February and March, this is when the most spawning takes place in Texas.
In 1971, Major League Baseball made helmets mandatory, though some veterans continued to wear cloth caps with liners under a grandfather clause. Starting in 1983, players were required to wear helmets with flaps extending down from the crown to cover the ear of the batter that was closest to the pitcher. Players who had previously worn flapless helmets were allowed to continue doing so. The first man to wear a helmet with a flap that was molded in as part of the factory construction was Tony Gonzalez, in 1964.
In 2013, helmet manufacturer, Rawlings, introduced a new model of helmet, the S100 Pro Comp. This helmet has been shown in tests to be able to withstand the impact of a 100 mph fastball. Previous models were only tested to withstand 68 mph. There are other helmet manufacturers also in today’s market, such as the Worth batting helmet.

Many of us interact with people only through email, Facebook, or texting. Face-to-face interaction is so limited. This type of “socializing’ is becoming detrimental to peoples’ personal relationships and children’s social development. Human beings crave a sense of belonging and connectedness. The face-to-face interaction, laughing, talking, and fun are missing due to much of today’s entertainment: television, movies, websurfing, video games, etc which are not done in a group setting.

Some may say the Australian duffel bag may well have as its direct cultural ancestor the swag. The rolled up woollen blanket slung in bandolier fashion carried by itinerant workers or persons of no fixed abode in country areas mid 19th century to mid 20th century. The early American slang term ‘bindle-stiff’ or ‘hobo carrying a bindle’. In other words, a rolled up bundle containing belongings.
The swag too may have had its origin in the military. Prussian solders of the 19th century are said to have called their rolled up greatcoats carried bandolier-fashion by the same name. Today, many are available in duffel bags bulk.
