Please, please view You tube video, ” Alligator Blocking the bike trail at Lake Apopka”, and think twice about taking your kids and pets out there to walk around!!!! They could get snatched and ate in a NY minute!!! Don’t risk it! Drive around in the vehicle with pets and kids, and stay in the vehicle! Keep your kids and pets away from the water’s edge everywhere in Florida around lakes, rivers, springs, creeks, retention ponds, watery ditches, and canals!!! Just because Orange County, Florida allows pets and kids to walk around out there, around Lake Apopka, does not mean it is safe!

Also when you watch the you tube video, “Alligator blocking the bike trail at Lake Apopka”, I would not recommend doing what that man did, while biking the trail, which was to leave his bike way back behind, and walk up closer to the gator, trying to figure out what to do, to get the gator to move out of the way. He decided to throw a rock, is what I believe he said on the video, I will have to check the video out again to see for sure, but NO don’t do that! That gator could get irked, and run right over and attack, and definitely keep that bike with you, to keep it between you and the gator at least! They are extremely fast! If you are approaching and see one on the trail, turn and go back, do not proceed forward, OMG! Did you see the latest gator that was hunted and killed, the big one, that was hoisted up, beside that young kid? Keep that thought in mind, and do not risk death to your kids or pets, by walking on foot, or biking around Lake Apopka! I am serious, and I am not joking, you have to respect those creatures, they don’t play around! As the summer vacations near, it’s almost time for families to attend local festivals, visit places like the Zoo and take vacations. And while these adventures are always a great way to spend some quality family time together, going to crowded places, especially with young children can get stressful. There are some basic safety tips that can give you peace of mind this summer.Justin Lavelle, Communications Director for BeenVerified.com, shares these tips for families. BeenVerified.com is a tool that keeps families safe, by giving you access to information about neighborhoods and people interacting with your child.From the macaronikid.com1.Create an Action PlanMake sure your family has an action plan so that your kids know exactly what to do in the event you get separated, whether it’s the grocery store or Disney World. Create a clear cut strategy so your child will panic less and feel more able to handle the situation. If necessary, write the info down and have them put it in their pocket with your cell phone number. Always determine a place to meet at any location you’re going, such as the information desk.2.Keep Young Kids CloseThe child leash gets a bad rap, but for ages 3-5 they can come in very handy. It’s about safe parenting, not someone else’s opinion. A child leash allows freedom while also insuring their safety. The same rule of thumb goes for putting an older child in a stroller.3. Look for the HelpersTeach your kids who to look for in the event of an emergency. Statistically the person who is least likely to harm a child and offer the most support is a woman with children. So encourage your child to find a mom with kids and ask her for help. Also point out an employee so your child can see what the uniforms look like. Other good helpers are police officers and security guards.4.Provide Your Children with I.D.It’s best not to include your child’s name visibly so your child isn’t lured away by a stranger calling their name, but do provide them with a phone number. You can order child I.D. safety tattoos from SafetyTat.com. Safety tattoos are fun and colorful kids temporary tattoos that are applied to the arm of your child. They provide a highly visible form of identification that stays in place even when wet. You can include your mobile number and the place you are staying. You can also write your mobile number on your child’s arm with a permanent marker.5.Use KidTracker for Older KidsFor tweens and teens with mobile phones, download the app KidTracker to your phones. This way you’ll always be able to find your child. For children old enough to handle the responsibility, you can pick up an affordable pay-as-you-go phone and put enough money on it for the trip. It can then be used for any situation where you want to keep in communication with your kids. Although mobile phones are very helpful, they aren’t always reliable. Have an alternative plan in case the cell phone doesn’t work.Read more here. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.last_img read more

Solskjaer has Molde owners’ support to land full-time Utd job

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has enjoyed a successful start to this stint as interim manager © AFP/File / Paul ELLISMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 2 – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Molde’s owners hope he does not come back to Norway, because they want him to be successful in becoming Manchester United’s permanent manager.Solskjaer is on loan to United for the remainder of the Premier League season, having been appointed caretaker on December 19, as replacement for the sacked Jose Mourinho. United are going through the process of seeking a permanent replacement for Mourinho, although an announcement is not expected until after the English domestic season ends in May.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is known to be a contender, while former France midfielder Zinedine Zidane, most recently Real Madrid’s manager, and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone are also among those who are being considered.Solskjaer, who played for United between 1996 and 2007, has made no secret of his desire to manage the club beyond the end of this season.He says he has the full support in that ambition of Norwegian businessmen Kjell Inge Rokke and Bjorn Rune Gjelsten, Molde’s joint owners.Solskjaer said: “When I rang the owner and said that United had called and that he always knew that this had been my dream, he said ‘Go over, enjoy yourself and please don’t come back’.“Both owners wished me all the best because they knew this is something I dreamed about. To get the backing from them was fantastic. If I go back to Molde, I will do my best for them but it depends when I go back.“It’s been fantastic so far. Hopefully I will get to see my family soon, because that has been the only downside to the job.”Solskjaer’s family have remained in Norway while he has been staying in Manchester and concentrating on reviving United’s fortunes.– Winning run –He won his first eight games in charge, something no previous United manager had achieved, before that run was ended with a 2-2 Premier League draw at home to Burnley on Tuesday.Despite his short-term appointment, Solskjaer said the club are consulting him about players they are planning to sign at the end of the season.United made no signings during the January transfer window, deciding to wait to reinforce the squad.“I have got to know the players, what potential they have, how far away they are from reaching that potential, and who we can build a team on, so of course I put my views into the club,” said the interim boss.Solskjaer said he would be happy to continue advising United on potential signings even if the club appointed another manager for next season, believing his in-depth knowledge of the club’s culture puts him in a good position to judge which players would fit in at Old Trafford.“It comes down to playing style, how we want to look in one or two years’ time, what kind of players we want and what kind of personalities we look for,” he said.“It’s about finding players with the right Manchester United identity and DNA.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
