Hydrofloors are only like the coolest thing ever invented. They are specially designed pools with movable floors. When you’re using your pool it’s just like a normal pool. But when you are done swimming or aquacising, you press a button and the pool’s floor slowly raises up while the water slips underneath the floor. Pimpin! Eventually the pool’s floor reaches the top and you are left with a large flat area you can use for recreation, dining, parties or any other dry land even

How to grow watermelons: They do not like "wet feet" but they need at least an in of water each wk. You can trellis up watermelon plants, and once the plants set fruit, support the burgeoning melons with slings, which can be made with cheesecloth, nylon stockings, or old T-shirts. If the sling completely covers the fruit, it provides protection from insects. In addition to saving space, trellising improves air circulation and helps prevent disease.

#paleo Mayo | Secret for better tasting mayo, do not use extra virgin olive oil but instead use a light tasting olive oil, or a mild tasting oil such as walnut oil. Also, try using a hand held mixer instead of a blender if you blender gets hot quickly which can mess up the emulsification process. 2 eggs; 2 cups light tasting olive oil or walnut oil; 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar; 1 teaspoon yellow mustard; 1 teaspoon sea salt; ⅓ teaspoon cayenne pepper

A walk along an urban trail is an education in diversity. You'll pass people of many nationalities and dress with one thing in common: they need exercise outdoors. You may notice that the plant world along the way is also inhabited by species from far away places. Vinca, an evergreen ground cover vine that now inhabits much of North America, is actually native to parts of Europe, North Africa and western Asia. The name was probably derived from a Latin word meaning "to bind." Certainly, as a ground cover, it is very effective for erosion control. In addition, David MacKenzie in Perennial Ground Covers says the tough runners used to be twisted together to form rope. The trailing, vine-like plant is in the Dogbane family, along with Bluestar (Amsonia spp.), Asiatic Jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum), Confederate Jasmine (T. jasminoides) and Mandevilla. Mature height as a ground cover is usually from 8" to 18". The runners root as they go. Flowers may be blue, white or burgundy, depending upon the cultivar. Vinca prefers moist soil in partial shade to full shade, but will also tolerate sun and drought. It is deer resistant. Two species of Vinca are commonly available: Vinca major and Vinca minor. Vinca major is so named because the flowers and leaves are larger and the runners longer than Vinca minor. Its common name is Bigleaf Periwinkle. Leaves are oval, green or variegated, 1" wide and approximately 2" long. Simple flowers are up to 2" diameter. It is reliably hardy in USDA climate zones 6 through 9. Recommended soil pH is 5.6 to 7.8. In addition to its effectiveness as a ground cover, it is a fine subject for hanging baskets. Plant 8" to 12" Vinca minor is commonly known as dwarf periwinkle, creeping myrtle, or death myrtle. V. minor does contain toxic substances, but MacKenzie says that "during the Middle Ages, the heads of criminals who were to be executed were adorned with stems of V. minor, hence the Italian name Fiore di morte (flower of death)." Foliage is about 3/4" wide and 1" long. Mature height is less than V. major; about 4". Evergreen foliage is deep green and shiny. It is fine for erosion control in medium-sized areas provided that water does not flow with such force that the plants are dislodged before established. Vinca minor is hardy in USDA climate zones 4 through 8. Recommended soil pH is 6.1 to 7.8. Plant 6" to 12" apart. Vinca does well in shallow soil, even where tree roots make it impossible to cultivate. But if possible, prepare the planting bed by cultivating at least 4" deep, removing all traces of weeds. Composted manure may be incorporated into the soil. Fertilizer may be used. If you choose to do so, incorporate 10-10-10 fertilizer at a rate of no more 2 lbs. per 100 square feet into the top 4" of soil. Avoid synthetic fertilizers contacting any part of your plants. Vinca can be planted any time you have a shovel handy, even bare root plants. It is very tough. Nevertheless, you should water occasionally until the plants become established to avoid drought stress. Maintenance is minimal. Vinca has few pest and disease problems, and tolerates poor soil. Because it is so common, some folks think that Vinca is over-used, even invasive. But I don't agree; I'm all about diversity. It does what a ground cover is supposed to do; it covers ground. Vinca is popular because it is effective, attractive, and requires little or no maintenance. Return to Vinca at goGardenNow.com.

wonderfulyou: Don’t rely on other people to make you happy. Your happiness depends entirely on you. Your life does not lie in the hands of the people around you, or in the situation you happen to find yourself in at this moment. You are not a victim on your circumstances, but rather a powerful being with a choice. The question is: do you allow every ripple of the sea that is this life turn you upside down? Or can you find peace, knowing there is an ocean of calm beneath the surface of your life situation? As long as you look at the world from the eyes if a victim, victimized is what you will be. Stop feeling sorry for yourself - get up and change something! You can’t count on people to always treat you well, or for the universe to always hand you the cards that you want. You need to find a place inside of yourself where the ever changing ebb and flow of life does not dictate your fundamental sense of peace. Practice peace, and peacefulness will come your way. Practice love, mindfulness, gratitude… And this is what your life will be made up of. You are an ocean of love. Stop treading water and enjoy the swim! #yogaeverydamnday #wisdom #love
All of the sudden I'm the asshole walking around saying things like: nope she doesn't watch that, she doesn't eat that, she doesn't play with those, we don't sing Hannah Montana songs, she doesn't eat candy for breakfast. It goes on and on. The things going on the shelves in America marketed to kids is creating a bitterness inside me that I can't quite control. I wanted to write this post so I could let off some steam and have a laugh and all it did was get me discouraged. I hate that as parents we are put in the position to look like assholes for saying no to things that just aren't good for them. I don't want my daughter to resent me because I didn't let her drink sugar water with red dye in it, or let her wear makeup when she is 4, or dress up like a princess because it's her job to be pretty. When the kids are outside playing in the pool, or fishing at the lake, or outside in general just rolling around in grass or splashing in puddles I feel like they can just be kids. I feel like we are all happiest. None of this requires toys, or an appropriate color scheme or movie theme, it's just fun. They get to just play. So I suppose we will stay outside.
