Play Around in Memphis

This is a sponsored guest post written by Memphis Travel on behalf of Memphis CVB. Post powered by Sponzai.

More than just the home of the blues and barbeque, Memphis gives you plenty of ways to play around, with fun things to do no matter who you are or what you like. Of course, if you’re into Elvis, rock-and-roll and mouth-watering ribs, you’ve got to check out Graceland, Sun Studios, and the Rendezvous. But Memphis has much more to offer than this holy trinity of southern culture, with enough to see, do and eat to make it the perfect location for your next long weekend getaway. 
    The families out there (or the wild at heart) should be sure to check out the Memphis Zoo, one of only four U.S. zoos with giant pandas. Recently ranked the #1 zoo in the U.S. by, the Memphis Zoo lets you get up close and personal with the animal kingdom. And with the recent addition the Northwest Passage, home to Polar bears in a see-through underwater exhibit, and the zoo’s newest section, Teton Trek, kids and adults alike are certain to have a blast.
    Don’t let your midtown experience stop at the zoo; the Cooper-Young and Overton Square neighborhoods are just down the street. Ask a local Memphian where to find a tasty bite to eat, great local music and ice cold beer, and they will probably direct you here. Speaking of beer … the environmentally conscious visitor can enjoy a locally brewed beer by Ghost River Brewing or walk through the natural landscape and educational facilities at the Lichterman Nature Center.
    Memphis has museums for just about everything. From the Civil Rights Museum, Cotton Museum and Fire Museum in downtown to the Brooks Museum, Children’s Museum of Memphis and the Pink Palace Museum further east, the number of places to have fun while you learn are as bountiful as the barbeque restaurants. Families, friends, sports fans, history buffs, self-proclaimed food critics – Memphis has everything you need to keep everyone happy.
     So when you visit Memphis, stay a few extra days. Even the locals don’t run out of things to do. And to make it easy, is launching a new
travel guide to help you plan your next vacation. Simply choose from a list of interests and you’ll be given a sample itinerary with lots of great ideas. You can also register for a chance to win one of twelve trip packages that include tours, gift certificates to Memphis’ favorite restaurants, hotel stays and more. Go to to get started.

Quick test to help tell if you are having a boy or a girl

Most expecting parents want to know the gender of their baby as soon as possible. Knowing the sex of the baby can be especially helpful if you are first time parents and want to know how to decorate the room or what types of clothes to start looking for. This can also be great to know so that when you are thrown a baby shower those that are invited can have a better idea of what to get you. The test is very simple as it turns Blue for a boy and Pink for a girl so there is no decoding needed. You can know within seconds whether you are having a boy or girl it is that simple.
We were just made aware of a baby gender predictor free shipping deal that is going on now at We watched the video and this simple urine test can be done as early as six weeks and is as simple as taken a pregnancy test. This could be a great gift idea for your friends that are expecting instead of having to wait to go to the ultrasound which is usually done at 18-20 weeks for a normal pregnancy. I also like the fact that a certain portion of the proceeds goes to one of several charitable organizations like American Red Cross and Feed the Children. So if you are someone you know is expecting then why not get this simple test and right now they are offering free shipping and special discounts for the 4th of July. You can also look at the various testimonials that they have received and check out their informational video to see how simple this test really is to do.

Trivia with the neighbors

We played 80 trivia with our neighbors this weekend, and some of our freinds we found out spent way to much time watching TV. Like who was the lead singer of Wang Chung?

When did Edie Brickell have her first hit? I can’y even remember what the answer was, but some of our friend knew this right off the bat.  This goes to show who was hanging out in front of the TV , while the rest of us were out working in high school.

Christmas gifts for 2009

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse starts out one of the classic Christmas stories. Originally called A Visit from St. Nicholas now we know it by The night before Christmas conjures up images of Ol’ Saint Nick with his sleigh full of reindeer whisking around the world bringing Christmas gift to all the good little boys and girls. It has become a tradition at our house as with many others to read this shortly before Christmas to our kids.

As the holidays near we pull out the Christmas lights, and ornaments to decorate the tree. We string popcorn and cranberries to put around the tree, and the kids hang there ornaments from the limbs with care. Then of course there are the gifts that fill the underneath the tree all wrapped in festive paper and bows to match. This year we will be giving to some of friends and family Christmas gift baskets some with gourmet foods, others with a selection of beers from across the country. Rogers eMall has Christmas ideas for those that have everything.It is way to provide everyone with something that they will enjoy throughout the holiday seasons and can share with their families during this Holiday Season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Online courses for 2010

I know a lot of people that like to do their schooling from online. It seems very popular these days to obtain a degree online. I would like a masters degree in business management but I haven’t found the right online school yet. They are a bit expensive in most cases, but they are convenient, since you can do all your work from home. Now Online Colleges afford you and I the opportunity to choose our career path in a timely manner with a great cost savings. This means you can do your work at noon or midnight if you get a degree online. It will give you more work/life balance in order to achieve your goals while maintaining your life outside of work and school. I like setting my own hours and this would be great for someone like me. A degree online is just as hard as getting one in a classroom, so it’s not easier to get one online.

Do you know of someone that does school from a computer at home? Do you think you would ever have an interest in getting a higher education by using the Internet? I know lots of online schools are enrolling new people all the time. I haven’t found the right school for me, but I do keep a close eye on the lastest programs and schools that do come online. I may switch my major to something else, if I find something that will help me more. I think as of right now, the business management route is the best way for me to go.

Old games we used to play

Those days of watching westerns on Saturday afternoons and going out in the yard to play cowboys and Indians are gone. The computers with internet and a number of video games are plugged into the television sets now and the kids of today don’t know much about them cowboy and Indian battles. I can remember when watching cartoons were a big deal every Saturday morning and that was the only time they came on. The Saturday morning cartoons have been replaced with a channel that shows cartoons 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

cowboysI could just imagine what Santa gets to hear right now with the kids sitting on his lap asking him for the toys of today. I don’t guess he gets many kids that say they want a couple of guns and holsters for Christmas this year. I can still see the way 2 six shooters were packaged in a box that would include your holster, a badge, and usually a red bandana if your parents bought the good set. You didn’t need to ask Santa for any Indian supplies, because you could just imagine that the Indians were out there. If you were lucky enough to talk one of your buddies into being a Indian, the magic markers or make up would be enough to write a few lines across the face. The cowboy and Indian days are just not with us anymore and not many new western movies are coming out either.

brain_gamesI’m not trying to say that we were better off in those days when Indians were our biggest fear. We do have some modern fears that parents didn’t have to worry about then. Some of the brain exercises that are available today to stimulate our thinking instead of just sitting in front of the TV are great extensions and can help parents and their kids rejuvenate the creative mind. On the positive side of things, our kids are learning how to use computers in school and speak in other languages. I know some of us learned a few words in another language too, but the kids of today can practice it with their friends or neighbors who speak that other language fluently. Our kids of today should grow up much smarter and healthier than when I was growing up as a child in the late 70’s and 80’s generation. I just wish they could play cowboys and Indians like I use to or pretend to be the Lone Ranger that had a Indian sidekick named Tonto. QPMAV835E82T

Getting to Hawaii

The summer is here and lots of people will be going to the beaches this year. I don’t think it’s really a vacation; unless you do travel to a beach some where. I know that has always been my favorite place to go for vacation. I love seeing the ocean for the first time; when you haven’t seen it in awhile. That memory of seeing the water for the first time always seems to stick out in my mind. It really isn’t too hard to pack up for the beach either, because you don’t need any fancy clothes or shoes to take to the beach. There are numerous  Expedia coupon code that can help you get to where you are going.
