The Caleb Report–January 2013


He’s 18 months old now.  Smart and funny.  He likes ice.  And Cookie Monster and one special Bear.  He knows lots of body parts, like eye and ear and nose and knees and hair.  He is fearless and will jump off a step because he knows someone will catch him.  Word has it that he will be going for his first haircut soon.  He likes to work and to be busy.   If he is awake, he is in movement of some kind.   He is good about stacking blocks and putting things in baskets.  He likes to play with Dixie Cups.  He is tall.  Among the tallest of his age group, according to doctor percentages (although I don’t know why doctors do those measurements – comparing with others starts early these days).  And he is fast.  It takes some keeping up with him these days.  He isn’t a snuggler, but will fall asleep in your arms on occasion.  He stays at Grammy’s house once in a while so mom and dad can have a break or a date night once in a while.  And when he stays at Grammy’s, cats disappear under the bed.  He’s a force of nature and he’s got the Terrible Two’s to go.  Blue is his favorite color.  His stacking cups in four colors?  Big Blue and Little Blue are always together and are the ones he carries around everywhere.  He likes for Grammy to sing “Little Bunny Foo Foo” and does the hand motions with me.  He is insistent on this song.  He likes it over and over again.  He especially likes the tickles when he is turned into a goon.  He likes it when Poppy makes airplane noises while Cookie Monster flies through the air.  He likes to bang on the old piano in the back bedroom.  And then he settles down and plays one key at a time.  Usually at the high end of the keyboard.  And then he is off to do something else.


Sorry to have been offline for so long, but I’m over on FB so find me there, too!  Have come to the conclusion that since I have changed jobs, the stress level is different and therefore the need for creative outlet has diminished.  That’s my reason for being a bad blogger, and I’m sticking to it.


Hope everyone is good!  What is the gossip out here in Blog World?

We's missed ya' tho ain't it swell that ya like yore new job enough to let go of blogger. But comin' back can be a social outlet, not jes a stress buster.

Kno what? I'se come to see that blogger communities is a chemistry, takes some beefy B vitamins, some clever enzymes fer catalysts, an' a trace mineral or two....ever body is important or th thang gits weak. Anyhoo....we miss ya PamOKC!

An' all misspelling is the fault of this applecorepad

Geez...if I remembered the words to little bunny fo foo it would be a personal triumph! Lovely to hear from you and love these pictures of Little Handsome. Funny haiku about getting him to sleep :-0

I don't think I can claim to think like Aunty does but I completely agree with her analogy about the chemistry of a really good blog community. I am just delighted to see you on the blogs again.

Hugs to all!

Has it really been 18 months already? Soon that boy will be shaving and ready to join the cub scouts. It looks like he may keep his blue eyes.

Good evening Pam,

It's so very nice to hear from you. And that things are well in your world. You have been missed.

Caleb is a fine looking fellow. Please pass my best wishes on to Kym.

Auntie, I hope you get that Applecorepad sorted out. Or maybe Cracker-Speak can be added as a new language. Thanks for appreciating on my 'boy!

Fishy: Will try to get video of Little Bunny Foo Foo. It is pretty priceleds.

Buzzy: Yep, blue eyes are here to stay and the time has been unbelievably fast. We call him a little time suck anyway ... I don't know where the time goes when he is around.

Sarah: Told you I'd been playing around with reorganizing the page! I'll make it around to other pages eventually!

Karl: Great to hear from you too and to be back in circulation. Have you been out saving the world lately>?

More and more people in today's world have a memory of playing online games as children. With every new generation, games have been advancing and continue to be popular. This doesn't seem to stop, and so the trend will continue.

Look on the Internet for hints and suggestions when you are starting to play a game. When you can't get past a particular level, it can be greatly irritating, and result in a lack of desire to play it further. This will help you to get to the next level and enjoy the rest of the game.

It is important to understand the game rating system. Understanding this system allows you to better control what your child is exposed to. Before investing money into any game for a young person, check the ratings for appropriate age groups.

The biggest choice to make as you enter the world of gaming is: computer or console? A lot of games come on many platforms, which gives you a lot of flexibility. But depending on the game, it might be best to play certain ones on a particular platform since it works best.

Should you have a playstation repaired or just get a new one? If you break your system, then you should consider upgrading, not repairing it. That's because the cost you will incur from the repair could exceed the cost of purchasing a brand new system. Consider upgrading your current system, or check out an all new gaming system. You're going to have to get a new one eventually. You might as well do it now.

It can be helpful to play a trial version of a game you are unsure about purchasing. Trials let you test the game out first to see if it's something you like playing. If you enjoy the trial, you can make the purchase.

If you are a enthusiast of playing video games, you probably have your favorites. However, you should not narrow your choices. To make sure you do not get bored, try to vary the genres you play. You might have a more memorable experience in some genre that you previously avoided.

If you have children, ensure that you're limiting the amount of video game play time your children have. Try not to let your kids play for over two hours every day since it can rearrange their priorities and strain their hands and eyes.

Some of the most reveled games ever made are classics. Play them! You will also save tons of money this way. Some are available online for quite a deal.

All games have ratings thanks to the ESRB. Games are appropriate for ages 3 and older if they receive an EC or Early Childhood rating. If your children are six and older, a rating of E is appropriate. A rating of E+10 is for people older than 10 years old. If your game is rated T, it is suggested that you be 13 or older to play it. "M" (mature) rated games are for people who are at least 17 years old. AO indicates the game is just for adults and RP signifies "Rating Pending."

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

Not every gaming out there is worth playing. The main thing you need to know in order to enjoy your gaming experience is which games are shovelware or otherwise bad games. Apply the tips from this helpful article and you will be on your way to enjoying your gaming experience to the fullest.
