Adventure Time: Frost & Fire on DVD review

by Daddy Mojo on March 2, 2015

I’m learning to love Adventure Time.  Season  4 on DVD got me interested and now I’ve started to search it out online and on Roku also.  The downside to watching it solely on your television streaming device is that they’ve only added the first two seasons.  Adventure Time is in its sixth season now, that’s lots of silliness and Frost & Fire that you’re missing.  Adventure Time: Frost & Fire focus in all on Flame Princess and Ice King.

Adventure Time Frost & Fire

Adventure Time: Frost & Fire has more focus on the funny than the weird…or maybe we’re finally just getting it.

Leonard Nimoy, Oren Miller and the ties that bind

by Daddy Mojo on March 1, 2015

On September 11,  2003 John Ritter died.  On September 12, 2003 Johnny Cash died.   I enjoyed both of their works, Ritter for Three’s Company and Cash for his countless songs that I enjoyed.  It’s rare when two famous people that I admire or liked their work pass away with such sequence to each other.  It happened again recently when Leonard Nimoy and Oren Miller died.

The Lunch Witch, graphic novel girl power with a witch twist

February 28, 2015

The Kitchen Witch is drawn is such a manic, chaotic manner that it immediately grabs your attention. Much the way that the pages of Battle Bunny became as much a part of that story, The Kitchen Witch uses its pages to resemble a book that’s been used. Some of pages have spaghetti stains, thumb prints, purple cabbage marks, coffee spills and more give the pages of the book, irrespective of the story, personality and flair.

Counter programming as a parenting tool can yield the wrong results

February 27, 2015

When I was 12 I remember sitting on the bed with my mother and asking if I could ride my bike around Europe. In my 12 year old mind’s eye I saw myself going to the store in the hilly countryside to pick up the latest issue of Spidey. I wasn’t a Tour de France afficianado, I was just curious and, dare I say, making conversation with mom.
“Absolutely not”, she said without missing a beat or entertaining the idea.
Her immediate decision about future events that she couldn’t control didn’t register with me then. It didn’t even register in my mind about the near future time of high school. However after college the seed was planted and it was time to wander.

What the kids are watching on Netflix #StreamTeam

February 26, 2015

Stella and Sam is one of the sweetest shows that we’ve seen in ages. It’s the story of Stella and Sam who go outside and have grand adventures using just their imaginations. This is feel-good all ages television that will allow kids to see exactly where their minds can take them when they allow it.
Eliot Kid’s introduction is artsy and creepy. Should I let the children see this, I thought. After watching just a couple of minutes the answer is a big fat yes. Eliot uses his imagination and friends to discover wild, new things, visit places and more. It’s a fun show with a great soundtrack that has throwback fun for parents to enjoy too.

How to save money with Shell and Fuel Rewards Program

February 25, 2015

I know what you’re thinking. I need another reward program like the cat lady on the corner needs another kitten. Shell and Fuel Rewards Program is simple, fits in with your life, offers a variety of ways to cash in on the savings and, here’s the kicker; actually has something that we all need every week. The Fuel Rewards Program is a loyalty program that ends up saving you money on the things that you’re already doing. Do you shop online, eat out, buy groceries, shop at Shell, use your MasterCard, use your Fuel Rewards Network MasterCard, buy gift cards or have friends that want to save money? If you answered yes to any of those then you’re already doing it and the next time you do it without being in the Fuel Rewards Program it’ll cost you money.

Naptime DIY: Apply pre-emergent to your lawn

February 23, 2015

At home, when the kids were inside watching Octonauts, I simply put the pre-emergent into our lawn spreader and walked up and down the yard. I was back inside before they got to the Creature Report and did their little dance number.
The biggest issue about putting down pre-emergent is finding the correct time to do it for your lawn. That time will vary, our time in Georgia will be different than yours in Illinois. You need to put it down before the weeds germinate. We were also told that you don’t want to put it down just before rain.
