5 Tips to Stay Warm in the Winter

How often do you hear of those that died of hypothermia because they did not keep warm during the bitter cold? Have you experienced frost bite because you stayed in the cold too long? Possibly you just did not dress warm enough for the weather. There are ways to stay warm during the Winter.

Stay Warm in Cold Weather
You may want to be vigilant about staying warm during the winter. Global warming (climate changes in weather) has become very common all over the world. While it was 57 degrees here one day, then the next day it was 32. It is important to prepare as much as possible for the weather.


1. Long Johns or Leg Warmers

As a child growing up. I did not understand why my parents insisted that I wear long johns. I now understand as an adult, but for those that do not want to wear long johns they now have leg warmers which can be worn under your pants. The nice thing about this is they have colorful leg warmers, warmers with patterns. They are very fashionable.

2. Undershirts or T-Shirts

I recall as a young child wearing undershirts and hating them the entire time, especially as I grew older. I was told I needed to wear them to protect my chest from the cold. I have now discovered that I can wear a sleeveless t-shirt under my clothing during the cold months and that works just as well. Also, t-shirts can be purchased in a variety of colors.

3. Hand and Toe Warmers

These are so nice. I use to work in a cold environment where the air conditioners were on 12 months of the year. Until you have experienced that, you cannot imagine working in the cold, then going out into cold icy weather outdoors. I discovered Toe and Hand warmers. I believe hunters use these also. I especially like the feet warmers which come in a pack and look like shoe soles that you insert into your shoe or your boots. They are inexpensive and can range from $1.49 to $3.99 depending where you purchase them. They do keep your entire foot or hand warm. The great thing about them is that the heat will last for 6-8 hours or more.

4. Long Boots as Oppose to Short Boots

I love short boots during the cold weather, but I love the Long boots better because the long boots protect my legs from the cold and the wind. Long boots are perfect when you are walking through lots of snow. Also when you find boots that have fur linings that is a plus.

5. Sweater or sweatshirt/ long sleeves

According to Allison Ford of, we feel sleepier in the winter because there’s less daylight.   She also adds wintertime gives us prime sleeping conditions in that it gets dark outside and your house is cool, thus more melatonin is produced from the pineal gland as daylight fades away.    I know in the winter, I almost want to hibernate like a bear. I want to stay in my nice warm house. I really love the knew fashionable and color sweatshirts. I have seen shirts now made of plaid print and they are quite warm and comfortable as well.

You Must See McCarthy's Wildlife Sanctuary (OMG)

The McCarthy Wildlife Sanctuary  was an awesome experience.  It is a non-profit organization.  The tour was well organized.   There were about 15 on the tour.  There was ample parking space.  The gift shop was just awesome and it was emphasized the money for items purchased went toward the organization in providing sanctuary for these animals.

My fearless Viet Nam Veteran Husband easily volunteered to hold this large snake below.  This was a hands on experience.

This Sanctuary is located 12943 61st St. North

West Palm Beach, Fl 33412

Phone (561)790-2116

The attendant that guided us through this sanctuary was quite knowledgeable.   I was happy too that there were  animals there that we could actually pet and hold.   That was very interesting.

This large tiger walked around as though he owned everything.   There was no shame in his game. Click on the video below to view.

This tiger stood at least 6 feet tall.  Also, when he roared.  It sounded like many tigers not just one.

Do You Know the Funny Things Kids Say?

Sometimes just take time to listen to kids conversation. They can be quite funny. A few of the funny things kids say are listed below.

Funny kids

1. Baby

Several parents were in the park with their children. One of the parents told another little 4-year-old girl, "Bye baby." Her 3-year-old son said the same to the 4-year-old girl, "Bye baby." The 4-year-old little girl looked at the 3-year-old boy and responded, "You are not old enough to call me baby." "She can call me baby, but you need to be older before you can call me baby."

2. Barbecue

The grandfather was barbecuing. It was not done yet. The father came to pick up his granddaughter. The granddaughter politely asked the grandfather, “Grandfather can you send me some barbecue?” “Just send it in the mail.”

3. Bible Study

The parent said aloud, “I do not feel like going to Bible Study.” The child replied, “ Then if you don't feel like going, dont't go.” The parent replied, “ I will go because I don't want to miss a word that was meant just for me.”

4. Bumps

I have bumps on my stomach, said one child to his mother. He raised his shirt and took a deep breath  showing her. She thought he was referring to his nipples, but then he touched his rib cage. His mother said, “Those are your rib bones." (out of the mouth of babes.)

5. Directions

As the father was having trouble putting together an item for the house, the 5-year-old son came over and stated, “Maybe it would help if you looked at the picture.”

6. Dreams

The mother asked her daughter, “What did you dream about last night?” The 5-year-old daughter replied, “It is still going on, I just paused it.” Referring to the dream that is.

7. Fishing

The grandmother told her 5-year-old grandson that the grandfather was fishing. The grandson then said, Pray with me that grandpa will catch some big fish for the family." He then prayed," Dear God keep grandpa safe and let him bring home some fish for us to eat."

8. Gas

One 4-year-old kept passing gas. Finally the parent asked, “Do you think you might need to use the restroom?” She replied, “Yes.” So she went to the restroom and stayed there awhile. When she returned she stated, “I have some good news and I have some bad news.” “ I tried to booboo, but it was only gas.”

9. Introduction

This grandmother was at her 6-year-old granddaughter’s school. The teacher introduced the grandmother as the student’s grandmother. The student objected and said, “That is not my grandmother that is my Granny.”

10. Naps

One child complained, “Why do I have to take naps?” The mother explained that it was for her benefit since she was a toddler. The mother also added when you are in Kindergarten I will not require you to take a nap, because kindergartens don’t take naps

11. Obstacle Course?

Have you ever heard of a toddler saying, “ Follow me I will show you my obstacle course?”

12. President

A 5-year-old told his mother, “I want to become President of the United States so I can change the laws for you.”

13. Real Food

A child told his mother, “I am hungry.” His mother replied, “Would you like an apple?” The child responded, “Do you have any real food.?”

14. Sharing

One toddler told his mother, “Granny we will share you with our mother.”
Another child wanted to go to Chuck E. Cheese's. The parent told him, “We do not have any money for that today.” She asked, “You don’t pay your bills?”

15. Sickness

 Another child said, “My daddy is sick, but he is not sick enough to die.

16. Stomach

One 4-year-old exclaimed, “ I’m hungry.” “ So that is why my stomach was growling.”

17. Sunday School

As a mother dropped her 4-year-old at church for Sunday School, the grandmother waited for her to bring in a change of clothing for the child after church. Apparently the grandmother was not moving fast enough. The 4-year-old stated, "Grandmother can we come on, they are missing me in Sunday School."

18. Spending the Night

The grandson told his grandmother, "I enjoy spending time with you, I like staying over your house, but I have been with you 2 days now, I need to see my mother."


The mother texted her son to make sure the grandchild was ready when she came by to get him. When she picked up her grandchild the child asked, “ Grandmother were you texting and driving?” She replied,”No, I pulled over in the store parking lot to text,”

20. Thinking Cap

Another 4-year-old was told by her parent that she needed to put on her thinking cap, but she could continue playing. The 4-year-old instead went into the front room and sat on the couch. The other siblings ask, "What is wrong?" "You can still play with us." The 4-year-old replied, " I am thinking."

21. Words

A mother told her 4-year-old child, “You did a great job.” The child responded, “Yes, stupendous.” The mother replied, “Where did you hear that word?” The child said, “I just know it means “cool.”

22. Work

A mother brought her son to work. It was "Bring your child to work Day." Her child sat in front of everyone and said, "Mom is this the guy you have to suck up to everyday?" (again out of the mouths of babes)

Have You Been to the Lion Safari?

Have You Been to Lion Country Safari?

This Lion safaris is unique in that there are areas there that you just drive through and watch the animals moving all around your vehicle.

Lion Safari Park

This Lion Safari is located at 2003 Lion Country Safari Road, Locxahatchee, Florida. There are so many unique animals to see there. For those of you that are hands on there are several animals that you can actually hold and pet. Since we visited on Black Friday, prices were half off. So this was our family's Black Friday Special.    

1. We were instructed to keep the windows and doors closed at all times. If there is an emergency, a number is posted for you to call. Generally, there were trucks passing most of the time to feed the animals. They emphasized driving slow at about 8 mph maximum.

2. Celebration packages

Birthday packages are available by calling 561-793-1084 ext 2270. Safari Day Camps are ran weekly from June-August for ages 6-13. Call the same number listed above, but at ext. 2127
