The Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know About Your Baby from Birth to Age Two (Revised and Updated Edition)
In this encyclopaedic guide, Dr. William and Martha Sears draw from their vast experience as both medical professionals and parents to provide authoritative and comprehensive information on every aspect of infant care. The Baby Book presents a practical and contemporary approach to parenting that reflects the way we live today. It is a comprehensive guide to baby care, focusing on the essential needs of babies -- eating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort -- as it addresses the questions of greatest concern to parents today. The Sears' acknowledge that there is no one best way to parent a baby, and they offer the basic guidance and inspiration you need to develop the parenting style that best suits you and your child. The Baby Book is a rich and invaluable resource that will help you get the most out of parenting -- for your child, for yourself, and for your entire family. The topics covered include: - bonding with your baby and soothing a fussy baby - feeding your baby right - getting your baby to sleep - understanding your baby's development - treating common illnesses - baby proofing your home - toddler behaviour and dealing with tantrums - toilet training - working and parenting
In their excellent (and hefty) resource guide, The Baby Book, attachment parenting specialists William Sears and Martha Sears have provided new parents with their approach to every aspect of baby care basics, from newborns to toddlers. Attachment parenting is a gentle, reasonable approach to parenting that stresses bonding with your baby, responding to her cues, breastfeeding, "wearing" your baby, and sharing sleep with your child. For those parents who worry about negative effects of this attention, the Sears say, "Spoiling is what happens when you leave something (or some person) alone on the shelf--it spoils."

My Favorite Aunt Points Out Something for Me to Look at ~ My Parents are in the Background ~ 1948
(scan101109mehoustoncirca1949-C4restoration) 1948, Houston, Texas. You can see that my Aunt adored me. It was mutual.
I tried to make this 600 pixels per inch, but not sure if I succeeded. I also tried to set it on a setting where it was OK for people in Uncle Jerry's Photo Restoration group to give a hand at trying to fix it up. If I picked the wrong setting, please let me know which one to pick. There are some scratches by my Dad's slacks and my head, and I think by his head too. There is a line between my head and Aunt Dorothy's head, but I think it is part of the canopy overhead thing. Anyway, I was named after Aunt Dorothy, and I loved her so much. I'd really appreciate if this could be made nicer. Thanks.

Fulton Ferry, Brooklyn, New York City, New York, United States
Historical and Architectural Introduction
The Pulton Ferry Historic District, located on the East River in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, is an area of exceptional historical and architectural interest. First settled by the Dutch in the 17th century, a small but bustling community gradually grew up around the ferry. This was the place where Brooklyn began. During the Revolution, the ferry area played a crucial role in the evacuation of Washington' s army to Hew York. The transformation of the ferry village into a thriving commercial and industrial center, from the 1830s on, is vividly illustrated by its architecture. The opening in 1883 of John Roebling's monumental bridge-- the first of the city's great river spans — was decisive for the area, ultimately dooming the ferry service which had given life to this section of Brooklyn for well over two centuries. Gradually the ferry district became a backwater, its life drained away by the bridge.
The old Ferry Road was renamed Fulton Street in 1814, in honor of Robert Fulton, and is now known within the District as Cadman Plaza West. The Fulton Ferry Historic District is roughly defined as lying between Doughty Street, Furman Street, along the Fast River waterfront and around the bend defined by the eastern tower of the Brooklyn Bridge, to Main Street, then along Water Street and Front Street, returning to Doughty Street. This is the last bit of actual waterfront near Brooklyn Heights readily accessible to its residents along the residential street known as Columbia Heights, but cut off from direct access to Furman Street and the adjacent piers by the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. The revival and restoration of this waterfront area would provide an important amenity for the people of Brooklyn Heights and Manhattan, if ferry service were to be resumed.
A ferry service between Brooklyn and New York had begun here in the mid-17th century. It was from the "Brookland Ferry" landing, as it was known in the 18th century, that the American army's retreat to New York was launched on the night of August 29, 1776, after the Battle of Long Island had been lost to the 20,000-man British army. Washington was faced by the imminent threat of being cut off by the British navy in the East River. This strategic retreat across the East River was characterized by the British historian George Trevelyan as "that master stroke of energy, dexterity and caution by which Washington saved his army and his country"--an historic event to be remembered at this time of the Bicentennial.
The history of the Fulton Ferry area is inextricably linked with the ferry which served it. The existence of tills ferry resulted in the growth of a small settlement beneath Brooklyn Heights, occupied in the early days by large landowners and farmers whose descendants were later to control its development. The waterfront area below the Heights, in contrast, with its busy ferry landing, a large public market and adjacent slaughter houses, had been teeming with activity since long before Revolutionary times. By 1815 there were a number of taverns along the western end of Fulton Street, serving the ferry district, and in 1816 the Village of Brooklyn was incorporated.
A ferry service of sorts between Breuckelen and New York began in 1642, when Cornells Dircksen, who owned a small inn near the present Peck's Slip in New York, ran a small boat to the spot which later became the Ferry Road and Fulton Street. The early ferries were rowboats, flat scows with sprit-sails or, at best, two-masted sailboats, dependent upon wind and tide. In 11)55, Egbert Van Borsum, the ferry-master, built the first ferry-house tavern, a year after Governor Stuyvesant had enacted the first ordinance controlling the ferry service. Of frame construction and measuring eighteen by thirty feet, it stood at the foot of the road to the ferry. In 1704, when the ferry road was officially laid out, it was known both as the Road to the Ferry and the Road to Jamaica. It was the principal street in Brooklyn, running from the Brookland Ferry landing to Jamaica and thence to eastern Long Island, and it was along this road that farmers brought their produce to market and livestock to slaughter. A new stone ferry-house and tavern, contracted for by the New York Corporation in 1699 and completed the following year, replaced the original wood structure. According to an early print, it was a three-story rectangular building with stepped gables at each end. In 1743 it was put to the torch and burned by Brooklynites as part of their continuing quarrel against ownership of
Brooklyn property ami shoreline by the .New York Corporation—an early instance of the bitter rivalry between Brooklyn and New York.
The most conspicuous building in the ferry area during the 13th century was the "Corporation House," a large, two-story stone building:; about sixty feet square,
When it comes to storage, I can't afford to waste space, so I try my best to make it count. This former clothes closet has an extra foot and a half of width to the left of the door. What did I do with that normally hard to access space? I added a 7 foot tower of shallow, stackable mini drawers, and a 4 foot tall scrapbook paper storage unit with every other shelf removed (see far right photo). It's a tight squeeze, but it's all accessible.
By the way, in the middle pic, the three black chests of drawers are on casters so that I can quickly and easily roll them out to get to the larger drawers behind them.
In case you're interested, by skimming your mouse over the notes in the photo, you'll get a guided tour of my doll and craft closet.

Red Steel 2 w/ MotionPlus
Red Steel 2 returns with an artistic style and flair created just for Wii. Set in a desert-bound, high-tech metropolis, Red Steel 2 is another revolution in the action-fighting genre, taking full advantage of the capabilities of the Wii MotionPlus accessory. Your movements are faithfully replicated on-screen, putting the emphasis on swinging, shooting, and fun! With the added ability of the Wii MotionPlus to sense the strength of a swing, you will literally be able to make an impact on your adversaries through power and precision.
Red Steel 2 is a single player first-person shooter that allows the player to blend Samurai bushido ethics with the blade, with the over-the-top gun combat. A Wii exclusive, action is set in a fictional, yet immersive and edgy Western setting and utilizes Wii MotionPlus technology (Wii MotionPlus accessory included in this bundle) to add precision to players actions both with the sword and the gun. This precision of motion allows everything from turning the sword into both a cutting and blunt weapon, to blocking bullets with single strokes as players exact revenge on a rival clan.
In Red Steel 2 Wild West gunplay and Samurai skill with the blade collide head on. Set in a desert-bound, high-tech metropolis a swordsman with no name is nearly all that is left of the once powerful Kusagari-clan. A clan known as "the Jackals", lead by one known as "Payne", are responsible and now it is the Swordsman's duty and your to avenge the fallen Kusagari.
Assume the role of the Swordsman to avenge the honor of the fallen Kusagari-clan.
Red Steel 2 is a single player first-person shooter developed exclusively for Wii and designed to utilize the Wii Remote's optional MotionPlus technology. Players will pick up the Wii Remote and swing it freely as the sword on-screen follows their precise movement – and even measures the strength of their swing. With this added ability of the Wii MotionPlus to sense the strength of a swing, you will literally be able to make an impact on your adversaries through power and precision and even engage multiple pistol-packing enemies at once, deflecting bullets with precise sword strokes. Along with less stylish actions, players rack up points through executing combos, finishing moves and other actions as members of the rival Jackal clan are eliminated. Additional abilities and weapons are earned or are available for purchase as victories pile up.

Upscaling Playstation 1 & 2 games test.
Tekken being run on a PS2, sent over component to my new dedicated upscaler, and being output on
a 23 inch 1080p display via D-SUB15. It does a really great job, and being able to individually adjust the channels is a *huge* plus. Even though it supports output up to 1360x768, for testing I kept it at 800x600. All-in-all, totally worth $30, especially if you're able to get RGB or component source material.
TV upscaler - a 32" Dynex TV with Phillips electronics. Since it's a 1366x768 panel, the image scaler in this set is actually not too bad as far as built-in options go. It produced a very linear upscale, with noticeable pixel doubling taking place. This is the base for my testing.
Denon AVR with Anchor Bay scaler - Considered one of the best scaling chips available for film material. Produces a minor amount of input delay in video games (approx 1 frame). The image is very smoothly upscaled, but with a slightly agressive image process that smears like colored pixels. For films, this is often desired, but for games, it often leads to reduced image quality depending on the amount of detail in a scene.
No-name Chinese EGA/CGA/VGA/RGB/Component upscaler - Designed specifically for upscaling older video game systems to HD. Supports arcade boards as well, which allows you to replace your aging CRT cabinet with a flat panel. Every option is adjustable, including geometry and individual color channels. This board is widely available and is a highly recommended option by hardware testers.
PS3 with hardware PS2 compatibility - If you're looking for the best way to get PS2 games on your HDTV, this isn't it. While the actual upscaling quality is quite good, the trade-offs are an improper ratio (5:4 rather than 4:3) and a 3 frame input lag on EVERY title. PSone games get upscaled well, but it is done through emulation, so the nuances of the original video output get lost.
Verdict: it beats the ever-living hell out of a PS3 trying to upscale PS2 games. No squished aspect ratio, no over processing of edges, and best of all, no 3 frame input lag. PSone games benefit from this guy as well, as they get a nice CRT-esque smoothing applied, which makes them look much better when being blown up, plus, the after-mentioned input lag a PS3 introduces (and I'm always a fan of running original hardware vs emulation). If you want to get Playstation 1 and 2 titles on your HD tv, this is the way to go.
Threw a good range of titles at it:
KOF XI - 2D fighter with low-res characters and hi-res backgrounds. This game gives even top-dollar upscalers a hard time. The combing in the game is vicious, especially when landing a move that causes the screen to shake. This scaler handled it a thousand times better than the one in my TV, and only slightly better than the Anchor Bay scaler in my AVR. Neither was fast enough to handle full deinterlacing during screen shakes, and all three exhibited minor dot crawl around bright colors.
Dragon Quest VII - PS2 RPG with cell-shaded 3D graphics. This game is a tough one to upscale due to the razor-thin black outlines everything has. My TV's scaler did a simply awful job, with everything being smeared and nasty jagged edges everywhere. The Anchor Bay scaler in my AVR fared slightly better, but produced a very processed looking image, and caused a lot of detail to be lost. This scaler did a simply amazing job by comparison. Edges were soft and natural, but textures retained their sharpness, so there was no real loss of detail. None of them allow the title to look as beautiful as it does on a good SCART or component standard-def CRT, but this new scaler was the best of the bunch.
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - Good soft CRT-like image. Definitely better than my TV's scaler, and less processed looking than the Anchor Bay scaler. However, all 3 showed dot crawl around the health and super meters. This scaler had the least amount.
Tempest X3 - A *very* low-res 3D game that I've seen cause horrible flashing on low-end scalers. This upscaler did a better job than both my TV (which is awful) and the Anchor Bay scaler. However, it did reveal that this upscaler can't seem to process full-screen flashes. Whenever the game screen flashed pure white, the scaler hiccuped and took about a half-second to display again. Not a show stopper, but slightly annoying.
Soul Edge - medium resolution early 3D game. Both this scaler and my Anchor Bay handled it *very* well. Looks as close to the arcade as I've ever seen it coming out of a Playstation. TV's scaler introduced flashing during deinterlacing.
Tekken 5 - This was an interesting title to test. I first tested it in 480i mode, with the flicker filter turned ON. It produced a very CRT like image, with even smoothing and great deinterlacing. Next, I switched it over to 480p progressive and the result was amazing. Everything just came to life. The game was razor sharp, yet still had a nice CRT softness to it, and not a single bit of dot crawl anywher
7 things I bring on the go
The backpack. Gotten it from a local bag peripherals store. Rugged look with just enough compartments for my to house all my belongings. Zippers are always smooth and have never been stuck. Perfect for the on-the-go me.
Communications. One for the civilian me. The other for the regimental work use. Pretty much average phones for every day uses. Reason I need 2 cell phones. One has a built in camera lens while the other doesn’t. My workplace forbids camera cells.
The shades. It’s a cheap shades that my sis have gotten for me when she went overseas because I whine that I don’t have a proper one. Nice and comfy and just enough to protect my eyes in sunny Singapore.
The player. The Zen 2GB. Decided to get it because I lack a proper MP3 player ever since my iPod Mini broke down. Also, it acts as a substitute for the future iPod touch I am planning to get. Pro iPod user here. It’s small in size (just about a size of a credit card) but packs a punch in music quality. The more then sufficient 2GB capacity is good enough for me because I always load up the player with about 150+ songs and 0 videos. Protected in official Creative acrylic casing.
Would you choose the white or the black lighter? Lighters are a must on the go. At least for a smoker.
SBA-290. The portable music system on the go by Phillips. Ultra slim body with it’s dynamic bass boost, incredible surround as well as XSL acoustics. Simply love it’s piano black version which I chose over the pear white one. Runs on AAA batteries so it wouldn’t eat into the battery power of my player.
The portable entertainment system. My beloved PSP Slim. For videos, games and also as a portable wi-fi platform. Equipped with a 4GB Sandisk memory stick, sufficient for my use. 8GB seems to be a little on the overkill side. Protected by a Logitech hardcase for hard knocks what god knows what else.
The Sennheiser HD212 Pro. Music is my life. Enchanced quality music is what makes a difference in my life. With noise-cancelling feature to block out pollutants such as baby cries, vehicles as well as gossiping middle aged women. It is a must feature for music on the go. Total comfort where it sits around your ears instead of surrounding it. Being everything clear, crisp and bassy and I do mean very bassy. Totally in love.
