Tempus® Wood Watches a gift that the special man on your gift list will love!

Looking for a great gift idea for the man on your gift list? Perhaps for a birthday gift a Father’s Day gift, or Anniversary gift?. I would love to introduce you all to Tempus® Wood Watches a company that has a gift that the special man on your gift list will love! Here is a little more information about Tempus® Wood Watches from the website:

At Tempus Wood Watches they see themselves as much of a lifestyle company than just a watch company. They make natural wood watches from reclaimed wood from all over the world. This reclaimed wood would have otherwise been wasted, but they import them and make beautiful and stylish watches out of them.


The founder's original idea was from a Cu Chi Tunnel trip in Vietnam, where he purchased a wooden bracelet from a craftsmen affected by Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. As he wore the bracelet beside his watch, he thought how cool would it be for the wrist watch to be made in the same material. It is a mission for Tempus Wood Watches to run their business and also be a positive force for planet earth.

“Meet Ya Ya and Mei Mei” Clip
    
Panda Fact Video Featuring Narrator John Krasinski
   

Narrated by John Krasinski (“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” NBC’s “The Office,” “Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”), Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film “Born In China” takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts.

And a mother snow leopard—an elusive animal rarely caught on camera—faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China’s vast terrain—from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest—on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together. Opening in U.S. theaters on Earth Day 2017, “Born in China” is directed by accomplished Chinese filmmaker Lu Chuan, and produced by Disney’s Roy Conli and renowned nature filmmakers Brian Leith and Phil Chapman.

Parents Can Keep Eyes on the Road with Strap Caddy #Giveaway

Did you know that at any given moment in a day, 660,000 drivers are using or manipulating phones while driving, and dash-mounted phones simply mean drivers’ eyes are off the road. Add in the distractions that come with children in the car and there are few more dangerous combinations. Wow, that is a lot of people out there driving and touching their phones, that is pretty dangerous. There has to be a better way, a way to talk hands free. Sure some cars may come with Bluetooth as a standard option but older cars do not. 
And I have to say that most of my friends and family do not drive cars that are new so if they did indeed want to use their phones they would have to use their hands while driving. But not anymore, thanks to the Strap Caddy! 

Are you a fan of The Golden Girls, well you are going to love the Art of Coloring: Golden Girls: 100 Images to Inspire Creativity coloring book!

"Thank you for being a friend"... I know you are singing along with me! The Golden Girls is a part of my history, I just loved watching the show with my parents we never missed an episode.

The newest craze seems to be everywhere, and now it includes The Golden Girls! There is a new book out from Disney Publishing called Art of Coloring: Golden Girls: 100 Images to Inspire Creativity a must for any Golden Girl fan out there.
