Open house at the Sheriff’s place

Posted by infinitygoods on September 19, 2007

Here are some photos from the recent Malibu-Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station open house. From horses to robots, they are ready to rescue the distressed and arrest the criminals.

One of the sights was a car that had been smashed in an accident. The deputies told attendees about the drunk teens who rolled and skidded across the highway and hit a pole. “They are paralyzed and messed up for the rest of their lives,” a deputy told our group of children, who were wide eyed at the sight of the vehicle.

Other hits of the day were the sheriff’s helicopter, a bomb squad robot and Team Sheriff Racing, which showed off its suped-up 1987 Buick Grand National that featured a 274 cu. v6, nonturbo, 580 hp engine with aluminum heads and Hogan intake, whatever that all means. The kids loved it.

WFMW Plastic Colander Bath Toy Drainer/Holder

Posted by infinitygoods on September 19, 2007

Our baby liked to have plenty of toys in the tub, but how to easily drip dry and store those toys? Nothing on the market seemed right. Those suction cups with fish net bags would fall off and I was concerned that mildew would collect. At first I tried a plastic bowl. It was easy enough to collect all the toys after bathtime, but water at the bottom was still a problem. I searched the baby aisles, the bath aisles, the toy aisles but could not find anything just right. Then I went to the kitchen aisle and found a brightly colored plastic colander. Perfect! Not only was it easy to collect all the toys and drain, but to our child the colander itself became a toy and a water experiment. Lots of time was spent sinking, floating, pushing, pulling that colander through the water and bubbles. It was easy to rinse off and its home in between bathtimes was at the bottom of the empty tub. It was equally easy to transport to the sink or the other bathroom too if needed.
