#BeTactical Tactical Tiedown™

#BeTacticalTactical Tiedown™ is a wonderful new product that replaces clunky tie-down ratchet systems with a simple and elegant solution from Hitt Brands, now available at Walmart stores nationally! Everyone is familiar with the “Chinese finger trap” — when you pull on each end, it tightens to an unrelenting grip. That’s how the patent-pending Tactical Tiedown works! Simply pull Tactical Tiedown feed rope one way to tighten to a grip that solidly holds up to 700 lbs. (with an amazing break strength of 2,100 lbs!). To release, pull the rope the other direction. NO ratchets, NO clamps, and NO knot tying for incredibly secure tie-down with NO hassle. Perfect for lawn equipment, camping gear, truck bed hauling, motorcycle transport, boat applications and so much more.

The Bru Joy Ceramic Coffee Mill Review!

Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for a review. The opinions are all 100% my own and may differ from yours.

I recently had the privilege to try out and give my honest opinion on a great product from
Bru Joy

This is an amazing product that I can’t say enough about. It’s easy to use, portable and light weight. This little gem can be used as a coffee grinder or even a spice mill. I’d like to try grinding almonds and walnuts with it for holiday baking. I might also add that the Bru Joy is easy to clean!

Red Hot Chili Pepper, Raw Red Jasper Beach Stone, Lake Michigan, 925 Silver Chili Charm, 24 Inch Silver Plated Petite Ball Chain Necklace

I found this beautiful rich red natural jasper raw gem stone in Lake Michigan. It is not often that I attempt drilling this type of stone due to its hardness. But I had to find a mate for red hot chili pepper! This high quality 925 sterling silver chili pepper charm has a wonderful red resin inlay for color that is dark red with black veining. The charm measures approximately 21 mm tall and 4 mm wide and is Made in the USA.
The stone is 17 mm with lovely texture, has a 2.1 mm drilled hole and fitted with a silver jump ring which attaches a stainless steel fishing swivel connector to the adorable chili pepper charm. The petite ball chain is 24 inches and is shiny and dainty.”

66 Positive Things You Should Be Saying to Your Child

by Alessia Santoro 9/19/15

In a world where saying “no” is usually a lot easier than saying “yes,” it is important to bring up children who don’t feel that negativity has a higher value than positivity. Encouraging words can have a truly lasting effect on your kiddo years and years after you’ve said them, so we should choose to use phrases that will make them feel good about themselves inside and out, things that will stick with them as words that got them through tough times.

Whether you want to tell them how great they were at their soccer game, or how much you love spending time with them, here are 66 positive and encouraging things to say to your child on a daily basis.

I’m grateful for you.

Come autumn, many of America’s national parks are at their most visually stunning. It’s not only the fall foliage that amplifies their beauty, but also the waning light casting the landscape in an almost magical iridescence. And after the heat of summer, the crisp air offers a welcome reprieve. Whether you prefer to drive through or hike through, these parks will prove unforgettable. Check out our picks for the ten must-visit national parks in the fall, with tips on what makes these places so special this time of year, from wildlife activity to fewer crowds.
