It’s Hot, Kids are getting antsy, and parents or the sitter’s nerves may seem frayed and wondering what to do with them. Turns out that instead of tossing a new video game or downloading another app for kids to play… Pull out the Board Games!

Board Games enhanced not just mathematical abilities for young children, but also improved strategy effects on basic and complex math skills, plus added to positive cognitive and developmental skills.

Bunny Take Over
The New York Post has reported that Wilton Manors, Florida is being overrun by Lionhead Rabbits. A bunny breeder in Fort Lauderdale illegally let loose the rabbits before they started multiplying on the street. Hundreds of rabbits are now living in the backyards of homes in Wilton Manors. The bunnies have a shaggy mane and resemble lions. Some families are feeding the rabbits while others consider them a nuisance as the bunnies are digging holes in the nice lawns. The estimated cost to catch and rehome the rabbits would be $40,000.
If you’ve not heard of the Lionhead rabbits before, here’s a little more insight. Lionhead Rabbits may be small in stature as they only reach 2.5-3.5 lbs, however, are active! They grow to about 8-10 inches at adult size and life expectancy is 8 to 10 years.

COOK MEAT LIKE PROFESSIONAL CHEFS
HOW TO SEASON MEAT
Have you ever watched cooking shows like Rachael Ray or Gordon Ramsey and his Hell’s Kitchen, for example… Watching closely, have you noticed how when seasoning meats such as beef, pork, venison, chicken, fish… really any meats; these chefs hold their arms high in the air, generously sprinkling the seasoning over the meat? Did you think it was just for theatrics? Done for more “Showmanship” to draw more attention to “Wow – we’re seasoning!”? Turns out there is actually a REASON for that high-arm technique. Meat is seasoned with the arm high in the air in order to evenly distribute the seasoning over the meat. Even seasoning a dish or meat can be very tricky. This technique of holding the seasoning higher allows for gravity to work with the swirl motion and results in more uniformly seasoned meat. Give it a try, you will be surprised! The only downfall is yes, you will need a slightly bigger prep area as it can get a bit messy but give this tip a try!
