Our Road Trips to Boardman, Ohio

Due to BS restrictions about covid, we halted all of our travel plans altogether.  However, we go to short road trips every now and then just to break the monotonous routine of our  daily lives.  Our kids suggested we checked out this food chain called Raising Cane in Boardman Ohio.  They said that their friends talk highly about it so off we went.
I personally don't like winter but it's a beautiful scenery for road trips when there's snow.
Boardman is 56 miles  from where we live so it takes a little over an hour to drive but the distance is really worth it.  We've never been to this place before so we were surprised that we've never really heard about it until lately.  It looks like a booming little town which reminds us of our place but the only difference is that, their steel mill looks like still going on while the industry here in our place have died.
Ohio is one relaxing place to drive around especially during summer time where fields along the roads  are filled with greens.
Rivers are beautiful too especially when it is frozen with ice on top.  
My body is  always cold but I often wonder if I can endure wandering in the woods during winter times.  That's always in the back of my mind but I'm guessing that my body won't be able to last a long time.  It would be fun to try though to find out how long I can endure it.
We went there three times already and will be going back again for sure.
I noticed that the common theme among business in this place is love and happiness, must be their  theme.  Raising Cane has "One Love" then we saw other businesses with love and happiness as well.  Thought it's pretty neat.
I wish the steel mill in our area did not vanish, it's sad to see it go down.

4 Tips on Keeping Your Furry Friend Happy and Healthy


Looking for tips on how to keep your furry friend healthy and happy? You've come to the right place! This blog post will discuss four crucial pieces of information that every pet owner should know. You can help ensure that your furry friend lives a long and healthy life by following these tips. Let's get started!

Feed them a healthy diet

Feeding your furry friend a healthy diet can be difficult, especially if they are picky eaters. However, it is vital to keep in mind that what you feed them will directly impact their health and well-being. For example, some foods may cause digestive problems while others might lead to obesity or diabetes. Therefore, in addition to choosing the right type of food for your pet, you should also make sure it is high in quality ingredients and low in preservatives and artificial flavors or colors. It's not only excellent but tasty too! To help with this task, we recommend using Purina Pro Plan Savor Adult Dog Food which has everything needed, including vitamin E, which helps promote robust immune systems, among other benefits.

Get them a comfortable bed

Your furry friend will likely spend a reasonable amount of time sleeping, so getting them a comfortable bed is crucial. This can help keep their body healthy and free from pain. In addition, having a nice place to rest their head will make them feel more at ease and relaxed, which in turn can lead to better sleep quality for both you and your pet! There are many different types of beds available on the market, so it is essential to do your research and find one that best suits your furry friend's needs. For example, if they have arthritis or other joint problems, you may want to look for a bed with extra cushioning or support. Alternatively, if your pet loves to curl up in tight spaces, you might consider getting them Pawpedics dog beds or memory foam mattress.

Exercise them regularly

Exercising your furry friend is not only good for their physical health, but it can also be beneficial for their mental well-being. Pets who get regular exercise are typically happier and less prone to anxiety or depression. In addition, exercising can help keep your pet's weight under control and may even help prevent certain diseases from developing down the road. The best type of exercise for your furry friend will vary depending on their age, size, and breed, so it is essential to consult with your veterinarian before starting a routine. However, most pets do best when given at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity per day. Some great exercises that work well for both dogs and cats include playing fetch or tug-of-war, going for walks or runs, and chasing after a laser pointer.

Regular vet check-ups

One of the most important things you can do for your furry friend's health is take them for regular vet check-ups. This will allow your veterinarian to catch any potential problems early on when they are often easier and less expensive to treat. In addition, routine exams can help ensure that your pet is up-to-date on all their vaccinations and parasite prevention treatments. Depending on your pet's age and health status, a vet check-up might need to be done as often as once a month or as little as once every six months. However, it is always best to err on the side of caution and schedule appointments regularly, even if they seem healthy.

Keeping your furry friend happy and healthy is not only good for them but also for you! It can be difficult sometimes, especially if they are picky eaters or have health issues. However, we hope that it becomes easier over time with these four tips.Pawpedics dog beds

Making A Small Vacation Out Of Moving House'

Moving house is often seen as the opposite of heading out on a nice, leisurely vacation. Not only do you have many more logistical considerations to keep in mind, but of course, when you leave your home for good it’s rare that you’ll come back. Instead, you’ll have to set foot into another place, set up there, and spend time settling in.

Thankfully, this process, despite the work it takes, need not be all doom and gloom and stress. After all, the transition to a new life scenario is exciting, and full of possibilities. So, provided you give yourself time to plan this, why not think about making a small vacation out of moving house? 

This could be especially worthwhile if you have a long distance to travel to the new home, such as if you’re moving across large States or even heading overseas. Of course, two weeks in the sun is perhaps not the best option here, but there’s no reason why you can’t integrate a little fun and break up the pace a little. This way, you move into your new place feeling refreshed and ready to take on the new challenge.

With that in mind, let’s consider:

Taking A Calming Road Trip

A calming road trip can make a huge amount of difference with regard to how comforting the experience is. Give yourself a little more time, and have a family member fly across to meet the removalists where appropriate. This way, you can bring your extra property and family members in tow, taking small diversions where necessary, visiting landmarks, and stopping off in hotels after a comfortable amount of driving. You’ll find that the affair becomes a fun adventure with a new home prize at the end rather than a mad dash to the finish line.

Ingratiating Yourself Into The Area

Settling in to a new home can take years, but the truth is that without properly knowing the area ahead of time, it can take even longer. When house hunting or finalizing your decisions, take a weekend vacation to the area of your new home. Visit some restaurants, walk around, do some shopping, speak to the locals, and head to a few fun activities. Take a lazy drive around. After a little while, the place will feel like a second home before you even make it a main home.

Make The House Into A Vacation Spot

Our homes are a mess when we move into them. Not only do we have dozens of boxes we need to live out of for a few days, but some utilities might not be up and ready yet. It can be fun, then, to treat this like an adventure, to stock up on supplies, to make sure we have the beds made up even if the rooms aren’t perfected yet. This way, you can bond together and slowly work at building up the home and unpacking, eating takeout food, having a fun time, and booking a few days from work to be there with your kids. You’ll no doubt remember this adventure for some time.

With this advice, you’re certain to make a small vacation out of moving house in the best possible way.

It's been..
