Show Me The Kwan Game

It's not quite a board game, definitely not a video game, and a whole lot of fun! It plays very quickly and works for any number of players (ages 10+ - can be slightly younger if simple spelling of words is not frustrating). Show Me the Kwan is a fast-paced, dice rolling, word game. Given the chosen category the players must call out fitting words where either the first, second or last letter correspond to the lettered dice that were rolled. Each dice has an assigned point value. At the end of the 1 minute round, all players must count their points on the dice they collected. http://shop.griddlygames.com/ and use the codes FREESHIP for free shipping on Kwan ONLY, or code 10FORME for 10% off their entire order.

Time in a Box by FoxMind Games

FoxMind Presents the Gift No One Else Can Give

What does every child want? An I Pad? Xbox? Maybe, but what is the one thing that every child wants, needs and deserves? At FoxMind Games they believe they know the answer and today announced the international availability of its new Time in a Box.

The new product, the brainchild of child psychologist and writer Rute Moreira, is more than its contents. It's a gift of dedicated time; an opportunity to try new things; a way to explore art and science; a chance to plan for the future and to consider the past; and a way to tell a child in your life that they matter to you - more than anything!

David Capon, President of FoxMind, explained, "The benefits of Time in a Box extend beyond the product itself because it creates uninterrupted quality moments with the family and reinforces social-emotional connections. It also aims to reinforce the child's feeling of connection to a larger community such as the neighborhood or the town where he or she lives."

When you give Time in a Box, (MSRP $17.95 for 2 players ages 6 and up) you are offering a child you care about the gift no one else in the world can give them: your time. Inside the box you'll find 96 activity cards that allow a child to momentarily shift your priorities and focus on doing a special activity together, such as playing a board game; solving a puzzle; starting a family tree; making a blanket fort; or carrying out an act of kindness that will bring a smile to a stranger's face. Time in a Box includes a simple written agreement between you and the child that sets the ground rules by which you'll both abide. Adults should switch off their smart phones and get ready for some quality time!

"Season-by-season, Time in a Box is a gift that inspires activities that provide a wealth of ways to make memories together and the unique and beautiful box can serve as a memory chest where pictures and notes can be collected and treasured," Capon said.

Mrs. Cavanaugh's Chocolates




Time was when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.

"It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe," Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. "I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'"

Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.

...In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch. 

"It was a difficult decision, especially for George," Mrs. Cavanaugh said. "He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates."

Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence....
