Wordless Wednesday: Somebody's Garage Door

I don't know whose house/garage it is, but my son was
so excited when he saw it that I went back and took a picture. :)

@Globies The Harlem Globetrotters #FansRule 2014 Tour

Disclosure: Our family received tickets to this event for no charge in order to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Yesterday was a day of running around all day, trying to find a solution for my husband's car troubles (a problem not covered under the active warranty, of course). $500 later, we have a solution, and we're waiting on the new aluminum (*sigh*) rim to come in to replace the one that somehow got bent on the inside of wheel, causing his tire to also become irreparably flat. I suspect the potholes in town played a role, they're atrocious now that that hard winter has cleared.

It was a busy day, BUT the night ended on a very high note, we took my car ;) to go see The Harlem Globetrotters, woohoo! The 2014 'Fans Rule' tour is going strong, and last night they made a stop in Michigan.

Globie was there, with his cute self.

The show was so good!  Globie was there, the team mascot, and he was fun to watch.  The guy had some good moves too,

Dancing across the Court
as did The Harlem Globetrotters.

See the Globetrotter in the Audience?
There was a lot of audience interaction, and some funny skits. The Slow Motion skit was my favorite, and one of my children roared when a guy got his shirt 'torn off' while he was on the court. The bucket scenes (where they throw buckets full of confetti into the audience) were hilarious because every single time people jumped and ducked like there was water in them. ;)

There were tricks to be seen, & yes the Globetrotters have a lady, and she was awesome!

See the ball behind his back? These guys were spot-on with their tricks.
There were tricks to be displayed,

Taunting the opposing team
Jeering to be done,

Stuck in the basket (the player, not the ball). :)
and a game to be played.  Unless one of the players got stuck in the basket. ;)

It was an entertaining show, full of smiles start to finish, and if they're coming to your town, I hope you'll go and see them.

TeenSafe is a Great Resource for iPhone/Android Phones (with $100 Visa GC Giveaway)

If you've got a teen with an iPhone or Android Phone, then TeenSafe has got you covered! Some of you know that my husband and I do not have smart phones.  That is because we're old fogies, and don't think we need one. ;)  The teen and older kids in the family though, do have smart phones (the teen's was a gift, not from us). We recently had an issue in our home that required some backtracking of deleted texts on my teen's phone.  It wasn't anything she'd done wrong, but something that we really did need to ascertain.

If you have TeenSafe you can recover any text instantly, and at home.  In addition to locating texts (including deleted texts), the service also tracks the whereabouts of your teen's phone (great for safety reasons!), monitors call logs (if you feel you need to do that), allows for Facebook and Instagram activity to be seen, and allows you to see browser history all very easily, and all conveniently from one place.  This is a great resource to have for many, many reasons, with the location tracking being my absolute favorite feature!

Check TeenSafe out and see if it's a good fit for you!  Right now they are also offering a free 6-day trial.  AND they're offering a $100 Visa Gift Card to one lucky winner.

US/Canada entrants only.
