Kitchen Elite V Steel Mandolin

     The Kitchen Elite V Steel Mandolin was a sweet addition to our household.  I had a mandolin that was plastic and worked okay for awhile but after a few months, the plastic started to crack and discolor.  I was so glad to get this steel model that I am SURE will last a long time.

    The mandolin comes with 5 cutting inserts in the following sizes:  1 mm, 2 mm, 1.6 mm grater, a 3mm slicer, and a 7mm slicer.  It also has a hand protector and a blade storage caddy.

Bright Therapy SL50 EVOLUTION Acne treatment & Anti-aging Laser Therapy

    This product is simply remarkable.  At first glance you think it is just a beauty product to treat acne and the effects of aging but it is sooooo much more than that.   This is the SL50 Evolution Laser and I love it.


Acne+treatment, Bright Therapy SL50 EVOLUTION Acne treatment & Anti-aging Laser Therapy

    For starters, the laser enhances blood circulation and promotes healthier skin.  It also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles but that is just the start of the list of things it can help with.  I suffer from Multiple Sclerosis and this product has been beneficial in pain management for me.  It may seem costly but it can save you that much (many times over) in the cost you'll save from doctor visits, spas, and pain management.  

      There are a total of 12 different lasers in it, including infrared lasers.  It also has a programmable timer and a built in massager.  It is non-invasive and it really worked for me.  They also recommend it for a whole long list of other conditions including:  arthritis pain, strains, bruises, tennis elbow, bed sores, burns, post-op wounds, and cellulite.

   One other nice thing about this kit is that it comes with a 100% money back guarantee.  I like when companies do this because it means they believe in their products.  I have no desire to return mine.  It is professionally made and the hooks are made of quality materials. Win-win!

Camping Lantern

The Orion Ultimate Survival LED Lantern & PowerBank by Supernova
 
    This is not just an ordinary camping lantern it is also an important part of any prepper's supplies.  It is super bright and not too heavy and it is also a power bank.  Gotta love that it is two tools in one! 

    The small compact design may fool you but only until you turn it on.  This little lantern is BRIGHT at 180 lumens.  It has a built in power bank that you can use to charge your tablet, your phone or other handheld device.

   The lantern is also retractable to save room in your BOB (bug out bag) or backpack; and it runs on just 3 AAA batteries.  Nice!

Baby Turkeys

     We are so excited.  We got 14 baby turkeys in the mail today from Chickens for Backyards.   We were lucky enough to work with them previously when they sent us baby ducks.  We still have those ducks over a year later.  They are healthy and a big part of our homestead. 
   We got 3 bronze broad breasted turkey poults and 11 white broad breasted turkey poults in this shipment.   They shipped them out the day they were born and we got them today, two days later. They all looked really healthy and began eating and drinking right away.   I will be posting updates on them so you can see how well they do.  I am very confident in them because Chickens for Backyards is a company we all can trust.

Animals of our Homestead

       It has been awhile since we did an update on the number of animals on our homestead. Many people believe we are just starting out because I mainly post about the baby animals but that is just because most people want to see babies and older animals just don't seem to be as interesting. 
     We have been on our homestead 6 years now and have slowly been building up our homestead as we go along.  We don't have much spare money so we have to do it as we can.
    We have the "normal" animals like cats and dogs but we have a variety of farm animals too.

This is our only "house" dog....Whitney.



       We also have 4 outside dogs which protect our homestead and animals.

     We just got 14 baby turkeys.  We have 3 bronze broad breasted and 11 white broad breasted turkey poults.  They are just 3 days old. We will keep a few to raise and the rest will go into the freezer when they are of butchering age. 
     Goats:  We have a total of 7 goats and are getting one more next month.  The seven goats we currently have are:
     Casper, adult male Saanen goat.
     Jessica, adult female Saanen goat.
    Contessa, adult female Saanen/Nubian goat.
    Chloe, adult female Boer/Pygmy goat
     Brownie, adult female, pregnant Dwarf Fainting goat

    Elsa, 10 week old female Saanen goat
    Cooter, 5 week old male mini Saanen goat

   We have 2 creeks that run through the property, one pond and we have 3 wells.   We have numerous fruit and nut trees and a massive garden.   So, now you have it.  :-)

Personalized Picture Fleece Photo Blanket

    We got a chance to review a custom 50"x60" fleece blanket.  You just send them a picture online of what you want on the blanket and in a very short time, they mail you a beautiful, professional looking fleece blanket with the picture on it. 


Photo blanket, customized fleece throw
  
    The blanket is soft and big enough to be used on your bed but looks beautiful enough to hang on the wall too.  I had ours made with my favorite family photo. It turned out wonderfully and we hung it up on our bedroom wall.
 
    It would make a great gift for someone you love and I know they would cherish it.   The product is machine-washable which surprised me the most....what an added bonus!
 
     They also make these in a variety of sizes and you can have a whole collage of photos printed on it or just one.  Your choice.

Jerry Can Review

Wavian NATO Jerry can


    We had the opportunity to review a Wavian NATO Jerry Can.   Make no mistake, this is not a typical gas can.  This is a heavy duty, professionally made Jerry can for sure.  It holds 5 gallons and is made from 0.9mm (13 gauge) STEEL.

    It comes with 2 spouts and an internal breather spout.  It's painted with rust proof paint and meets NATO standards.  All seams are welded and it comes with a locking pin.  These Jerry cans are storable and stackable and will not leak, regardless of the position they are stored. 

   These are legal in all 50 US states and are suitable for either storing/carrying water or fuel.  We have used ours for a few weeks now and what I like most about it is that the fumes don't escape.  We filled it at the gas station and drove with it home in the backseat of the car and could not smell the gas at all.

   Five colors to choose from:  red, olive drab, black, blue, or yellow.

Snow

   South East Oklahoma has had a really, super mild winter.  Hardly any precipitation and really warm temps. Snow finally came on February 28th and today.  A later winter is better than no winter at all.
    Enjoy the pictures (all taken around our homestead).

Wireless Security Camera


   We had the opportunity to try out the Fujikam Security Camera.   This security camera really is amazing and quite nice in appearance too.
Fujikam security camera,
   The security camera is a high-definition security camera with a LOT of features.  It is wireless and uses Cloud IP networking to access the camera from anywhere.  It also has night vision, 2-way voice, digital zoom, and motion detection.  It is also quite easy to use and set-up even if you are not tech savvy.


     This is a really high quality camera and will give you peace of mind whether it is for your children, an elderly relative, your pets or for home security.


    Using a smartphone, tablet or PC, you can stream real time video to see what is going on.  If you install an SD card, then you can record also with great clarity.
