Peeps T-Shirt for Easter

I like Peeps. I don't like to eat them, I just think they are amusing. That's why I like this bunny Peeps t-shirt, "Hanging With my Peeps." If you are making an Easter basket for someone it would be fun to include a Peeps shirt. Peeps are not just marshmallow candy, they are a part of the American popular culture! If you do an internet search you can find Peeps lounging on the beach, Peeps featured in dioramas, and Peeps being subjected to "Peep research." You can find Barack Obama done in Peeps, Peeps galleries and Peeps being used as ingredients for recipes. There is just no end to what you can do with Peeps!

Here are some other cute variations on the Peeps t-shirt. You can get multi-color Peeps all in a row or just one giant yellow Peep. Get a Peeps shirt for yourself or give one as a fun Easter gift. Happy Easter!

The African Queen on DVD and Blu-Ray

Looking for a classic movie with both romance and edge-of-your-seat adventure? Look no further than The African Queen, one of my top favorite movies of all time. Starring two of Hollywood's legendary best actors, Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, this movie is a must-see and a must-have to add to your DVD or blu-ray collection.

The African Queen is now available on DVD and blu-ray (release date March 23, 2010 but already a bestseller). The blu-ray commemorative box set contains the fully-restored version plus multiple extras including a new "making of" feature, collectible packaging including a second disc audio CD of the original Lux radio broadcast of The African Queen starring Humphrey Bogart and Greer Garson, Katharine Hepburn's out-of-print memoir about the making of The African Queen, and more.

I'm not going to reveal how the scruffy, ill-mannered steamboat captain and the snooty spinster end up together. Instead, I'll just tell you that the story alone is worthy of a five-star rating and the acting by this legendary couple deserves more. Choose your preferred DVD version of The African Queen, watch it, then come on back here and tell me how much you enjoyed the movie, too. If you're a Bogey or Hepburn fan, or even if you're not (yet), I'm just sure you'll love it.

SodaStream Jet Home Fountain Machine

SodaStream Jet Starter KitWith the SodaStream Jet Starter Kit, you've got everything you need to turn tap water into sparkling water in 30 seconds, saving money as well as helping you be environmentally friendly. The SodaStream Jet soda maker comes with two BPA-free plastic 1-liter bottles and one CO2 cylinder that will make up to 60 liters of sparkling water. With no batteries or electricity, you can use your soda maker in your kitchen, outdoors on your patio or deck, or on your boat or R.V.

An average family of four spends over $1,000 per year on soft drinks and soda. This home fountain machine can save 75% to 90% of that cost! A liter of sparkling water costs 21 cents to make at home, instead of $1.50 or more to purchase at the store. Make 12 ounces of flavored soda for around 25 cents!

This is great for traveling or camping, as it eliminates the need to carry bulky bottles of your favorite beverage. Instead, mix up sparkling water or flavored soda from tap water in just minutes! In addition, the CO2 cylinders can be recycled and refilled, eliminating a huge amount of waste from plastic soda bottles. Save your pocketbook and save the earth with the SodaStream Jet Soda Fountain!

The Best Leprechaun Movies That Are Family Friendly

ST. PATRICK'S DAY is coming quickly but you still have time to pick up one of the best Leprechaun movies to watch with your family.

Six of the best leprechaun movies that I have discovered are:

Darby O'Gill and the Little People
Finian’s Rainbow
The Leprechauns’ Christmas Gold
A Very Unlucky Leprechaun
Lepin Leprechauns
The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns

Most of them are older movies and as such may seem a bit dated but that just seems to add to the charm of a Leprechaun themed movie.

Read more about all of these and other Irish-themed movies on my page, Looking For A Family Friendly Leprechaun Movie For St. Patrick's Day?

Any or all of these films would make wonderful, affordable family viewing and introduce your family to some of the myths and magic of Ireland. If you're in the mind to give a gift in celebration of St. Patrick's Day or even just Ireland, any of these movies would make a TOP-RATED GIFT IDEA. Be careful though because some of these movies will make you fall in love with Ireland.

Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring

Brome 1024 Squirrel Buster Plus Wild Bird Feeder with Cardinal Perch Ring

This Squirrel Buster Wild Bird Feeder from Brome holds 3 quarts of seeds, has 6 feeding stations, and is very easy to clean. You can even put it in the dishwasher. The cardinal perch ring encourages cardinals to come to this feeder because it allows them to face the food source directly on a secure perch. They do not like to turn their head to feed.
The weight of a squirrel on this feeder makes the food ports automatically close and the spring mechanism can be set to discourage larger undesirable birds as well. This top-rated bird feeder gets five star reviews at Amazon. Satisfied customers report that this feeder is worth the money and does keep the squirrels away. There were a few complaints such as the cardinal ring not being sturdy enough if you have aggressive squirrels and birds. Some said that squirrels had been able to chew on the metal lid. The majority of customers were very happy with this bird feeder because of its large capacity and quality of construction.

A hugely popular classic, Darby O'Gill and the Little People is a wonderful St. Patrick's Day movie starring some talented actors and actresses that you will recognize including Albert Sharpe, Janet Munro and a very youthful Sean Connery, who actually sings in this movie.
