Take the Family on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise in Destin, Fl!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining 23 bloggers on Brandcation in Destin, Florida. One of the things we got to do was to go on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. We all got dressed up as pirates and had the time of our life. Our pirate cruise was comped on the trip but there are many things I paid for myself. All opinions stated are 100% my own and may differ from yours. You can follow my Gulf Coast posts, like my post about Destin Snorkel and Emerald Grande.
I was kind of scared to go because I wasn’t sure if I would get sea legs or not. I was surprised while we were on the ship that you didn’t even know that we were on water. When we first arrived, we went upstairs to eat dinner which was served compliments of Jim N Nick’s BBQ. It was the best BBQ that I have ever had. But more about that in another post.
After dinner, the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise show was to begin. We were on the Friday night Adult only cruise but they also have family cruises available. They started off by shooting the canons. That was really loud but cool at the same time. I video’d it so my grandson Cody could see it. He would love to go on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise.
Most people spend half of their time each day inside their homes which means that the condition of a home plays a major role in a person’s well being. When you have a healthy home, your health and well being are also protected from pests and illnesses. If you have a pet, you will also need to ensure that your pet is pest free as animals are more prone to parasites that can be transferred to humans causing severe health problems. Fortunately, maintaining a healthy home and a pest free pet is not a difficult task and if preventive measures are taken, pest infestations can be avoided.
1. Know Your Enemies
To prevent pests from invading your home and spreading diseases, you must first know what pests are prone to infest in your area. Learn more about their species, their preferred habitats, breeding practices and preferred food sources. This will help you determine what type of housekeeping practices are needed for your home and what type of pest control treatment needs to be applied. If you think that you already have a pest infestation, hiring a pest control professional can efficiently get rid of the pests for you to enjoy a clean home.
Most people interested in adopting a dog are thinking of a puppy or at least a very young dog. In fact that’s the majority of dogs adopted from shelters and the only kind of dog available from pet stores and most breeders. But is a puppy always the right choice?
Typical reasons to adopt a puppy have some fallacies.
People associate puppies with “brand new” and people like to buy new things. In fact any dog you adopt will be brand new to you. Put a big bow on your adopted adult dog and the kids will be thrilled. It’s all about perception and presentation.
Puppies are appealing. Puppies are ridiculously cute, not matter what their breed. Nature has assured that baby anythings are appealing, so that grownup people and animals will take care of them. But puppies grow up and while all puppies may appeal to you, all adult dogs might not. They may be bigger or smaller, more or less furry or even drooly you want. An advantage of adopting an adult dog is you know what you’re getting. Puppies are puppies for only a very short time, whereas a grown dog will look pretty much the same all his/her life if properly care for.
Spiders are commonly found outdoors, and they might also find their way inside your home. Most species are considered venomous because they have venom that they use for hunting. However, the toxins that they produce are weak or too little to actually hurt humans. But there are spiders that have lethal venoms that even a miniscule amount can cause death or severe health problems. Among the most dangerous are the hobo spider, the black widow and the brown recluse spiders.
Where Are These Spiders Found?
The black widow and the brown recluse are found in the southern states, while the hobo spider inhabits the Pacific Northwest. The black widow and brown recluse prefer warmer climates, but when the weather gets too hot, they look for cooler areas to hide in. This is when they’ll probably find themselves entering your home. These spiders prefer basements and attics where they can be left undisturbed. They might also stay underneath kitchen sinks or inside wood piles. Brown recluse spiders sometimes stray in laundry baskets, and once disturbed, they will bite. As for hobo spiders, they are most often found outdoors where they build funnel-shaped webs in holes. Indoors, they can settle under baseboards, inside empty boxes, or underneath furniture.
