Baby Godzilla Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T

In 1989 the Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T was born with specifications way ahead of its time. The R32 was smaller in size compared to the old boxed shaped R31, looking much more like a sports car than a family sedan. The shape of the car was refined dramatically and the famous round stove top tail lights were retained. The interior was dramatically improved to make you actually feel like your sitting in a sports car.

The silky smooth RB20DET engine suits was introduced to the R32 and really compliments the car well but lacks a little torque.. The 158kw is produced by a 2 liter, twin cam, inline 6, with variable valve timing on the engines intake. Air is forced into the engine via a turbocharger with a ceramic exhaust wheel for quick spooling. Air is further cooled via side mounted air to air intercooler. All this technology back in 1989 meant the Skyline was capable of achieving 0-100 in 6.5 seconds and the 400m sprint in 14.8 seconds.

Driving the R32 Nissan Skyline is fantastic it weighs 1320kg's and is equipped with independent multilink suspension on all 4 corners. This equates to a direct steering feel and great handling. Another technical gadget shared with its bigger GTR brother is a 4 wheel steering system called HICAS, which stands for High Capacity Actively Controlled Steering. This system as the name suggests actively steers the rear when cornering, the amount the rear wheels turn is depended on speed and cornering angle. This device seems to reduce under-steer giving the Skyline a flatter cornering feel.

Tuning potential for the Nissan Skyline R32 is fantastic add a nice free flowing exhaust and intake and the RB20DET really comes to life and sounds great too. You can add another 25+kw to the factory claimed 158kw with these 2 modifications alone. Stiffer sway-bars front and rear will drastically improve the already fantastic handling. In Australia a Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-T coupe can be picked up for 10-14 thousand dollars this is good value for money for amount of performance they deliver.

The Australian Diet

The Australian diet may help you feel full of energy and eliminates fat in the strategic points, according to Peter Clifton and Manny Noakes at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO).

The perfect nutritional combination in order to obtain and maintain a healthy weight includes thirty-three percent proteins, thirty-six percent carbohydrates, twenty-six percent fats, most of them saturated, and small amounts of alcohol.

The Australian diet allows you to set your own daily menu as long as you pay attention to the following CSIRO indications:

Proteins should be consumed in three units of three ounces, one unit for lunch and two for dinner. Two units of two ounces of whole-grain bread per day that may be replaced by a five ounces potato, one ounce of rice or vegetables, or two ounces of pasta.

Dieters should consume one unit of cereals per day such as two ounces of muesli, one toast, or other whole-grains. If you want to follow the Australian diet should consume two units of dairy products, but you may have three units if you consume only two units of proteins per day.

Dieters are allowed to have two units of fruits per day, five ounces of fruits, or one glass of unsweetened juice per day. They should also consume at least 2,5 units of vegetables of five ounces each, and three units of spices per day. The Australian diet provides about 1350 calories per day.

Three Baby Shower Gifts They Won't Expect

I love baby showers. I love the idea of helping an expectant mother prepare for the arrival of her unborn child. I love sitting with a bunch of women as they trade mommy stories, play silly games, and eat yummy food. But what I don't like is watching one gift after another open only to discover it's the same theme: diapers, baby bottles, baby clothes. I've always prided myself on discovering unique gifts that both mommy and baby can use�"maybe not the minute baby is born but eventually, when all the other gifts have long been forgotten. And these three items are sure to add a new twist to the words, "baby shower gift"…

By Laura Hamrick

Whether you're an advent coupon clipper, a frugal shopper with a calculator and buying list, or a mom with young children, you'll want to get an OnTray™.

This little tray is amazingly simple to use and yet, it saves so many headaches. Simply attach the clip to the shopping cart handlebar and your hands free. No more bending over to pick up dropped baggies of snacks, no more bending over to pick up calculators that have slipped through the cracks on the seat, and no more little one's whining because they're bored or hungry.

The tray can be used to hold snacks, coupons, crayons and a pad, action figures, and so much more. And the best part is that it isn't bulky. It doesn't take up a lot of room so your child can still sit comfortably in the shopping cart. In fact, you can put two OnTrays side by side�"one for you and one for your child�"and still have plenty of room.

So the next time you're doing a little grocery shopping, think about how much easier it would be to have a little tray, then go home and hop online to order an OnTray™ for yourself�"heck, you may even want to get a couple for gifts. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Snak Trap
By Christine Moss

I have to admit that when I first saw The Snack Trap™ I didn't think it would work. After all, the lid seemed flimsy and the hole looked as though the food would just force its way out when dropped or tipped over. But I've dropped it, turned it upside down, and shoved my large adult hand in and out of the lid…and guess what happened? I pleasantly found the lid works! This is an amazing product and my only regret is that it wasn't invented sooner!

Every parent's worst nightmare is finding his/her child has stashed an entire year's worth of finger foods under his/her car seat or having to follow that child around the house picking up the trail he/she has left behind.

While The Snack Trap™ was originally invented for toddlers, I have to admit that I find it the perfect solution for snacking at my desk! How many times have we, as adults, brought a cup of small snacks to the desk only to knock them over while looking for an item or reaching for that cup?

The next time you're out shopping for the perfect baby shower gift, Christmas stocking stuffer, or just because gift, for a toddler in your life, buy The Snack Trap™.

10 Minute Menu
By Kathleen Peters

Are you tired of wasting your hard-earned money on restaurant and fast-food bills? Do you find grocery shopping to be your least favorite chore? With 10 Minute Menu, you'll not only find grocery shopping more desirable, but you'll learn to cut your grocery bill in half, save hundreds of dollars by eating in, and waste less food.

When I first opened the 10 Minute Menu Planner, I have to admit that I was overwhelmed. With my busy lifestyle, the idea of putting together a meal plan just didn't appeal to me. After all, who had time to scour recipe books, make the initial shopping list, and set up the menu planner? So I put off the review.

Then after countless trips to the refrigerator where I'd literally open and close the refrigerator in exasperation, I decided to give the 10 Minute Menu a try.

Each planner comes with everything you need to plan meals for an entire month, but what makes the system unique is that you aren't eating meals you've never tried. You're picking your family's favorites and incorporating them into a plan that works for your busy lifestyle. Then once everything is in place, it literally takes seconds to prepare evening meals. Which means…

You guessed it! Busy parents have more time to spend with their kids!

One thing I did different with the system was type and print out my recipes, using a 9 point font. I then cut and glued the recipes to the cards provided in the kit; that way, I didn't have to flip through recipe books and magazines, thus saving me even more time!

Expecting Mother’s Diet Influencing Baby’s Gender?

Boy or girl? If you're an expecting mother, and don't want to accidentally influence the gender of your future baby, you may want to pay special attention to your diet before conceiving the baby, according to recent studies.

A baby`s sex depends on several different factors, which may enhance or decrease the performance of spermatozoids with the Y chromosome, the chromosome that defines the sex.

Recent studies conducted on mice proved that the females that followed a diet based on saturated fatty acids gave birth preponderantly to male babies. If their mothers' diet contained mostly carbohydrates, more females were born, according to Dr. Michael Roberts from the Missouri-Columbia University.

Other factors that influence your child`s sex include your body's PH and the frequency of the sexual contacts before ovulation. Researchers believe that the high-fat diet produces certain hormonal changes in the feminine reproductive system.

Based on the study's results, it follows that, in case you'd like to have a girl, you should try to eat foods richer

in calcium and magnesium such as eggs, dairy products, cereals, nuts, ice cream, grapefruit, apples, carrots, mandarins, and foods without salt.

Mothers who'd like to have a boy should eat foods with high amounts of sodium and potassium like meat, fish, beans, rice, potatoes, peaches, bananas, watermelon, tomatoes, and apricots.

The study's authors pointed out that diet is only one of several factors that may influence a baby's gender.

That Unique Baby Gift

You will not understand how hard it can be to find the right unique baby gift for your first baby until you are invited to a baby shower. After all, baby showers often turn into an extravagant event, where each person tries to outdo the others with getting just the perfect gift. If your circle isn't like that, you still want to get something that will make you remembered. Everyone dreams of getting the baby boy or baby girl her favorite toy, providing them something they will cherish growing up. Picking out the perfect unique baby gift can be just this opportunity.

Before you go on baby shopping, of course you have to remember that little ones are notoriously arbitrary in their tastes. Sometimes a gift that looks like a good idea will be completely ignored, or something as simple as a ball of socks or a little jangly toy will capture the baby's attention for hours. Personalized baby gifts are great way to show the parents how much you care, but remember that the baby him or herself is likely to destroy a delicate blanket or bib within days, if not hours. With that, be preprepared for any reaction that might have to your unique baby gifts, but don't get your feelings hurt. After all, who knows what a baby is going to think!

Until the time came when my niece is pregnant with her first child. She and her husband have tried to get pregnant for several years, so they are very excited about getting their family started. I was invited to a baby shower. I knew that my niece had been doing a great deal of shopping for the baby already; so I wanted to purchase special baby gifts that she had not already purchased or seen. The department stores did not offer any special baby gifts; they had items that have been around for years.

When I was at the shopping mall, I mentioned to one of the sales clerks that I needed special baby gifts for my niece's baby. She stated that the store did have a line of infant things that can be personalized with the baby's name. This sounded intriguing to me so I asked to see what was available in this line of merchandise. The clerk had several items in stock that she was able to show me. She showed me bibs that were embroidered with the infants name on them. She showed me baby blankets that were embroidered with not only the baby's name, but the date of birth and weight and length at birth. Each of these special baby gifts needed to be special ordered and would be available in a week to ten days after the order was placed. The clerk also showed me several items in a catalog including diapers that were personalized with the baby's name. I did like the unique aspects of these special baby gifts; however the shower was going to be held prior to the baby's birth so I would not have the information that was needed to have the items personalized.

So, I tend to look for another store to find baby gift for my niece's baby. Until I found a small store that was filled with special baby gifts. This store had many of the same things from the department store, but they have a local seamstress that will complete the personalization within a day. I decided to purchase several of the special baby gifts. I bought the baby blanket that could have the baby's personal information embroidered on. I also bought a picture frame that had a place to engrave the baby's name. The picture frame also had space to frame the birth certificate next to the baby's photo. I had the clerk wrap the gifts and she included a card with the shops name and telephone number so that my niece could have the embroidery and engraving completed once the baby was named. The shop charges a flat rate for the embroidery and engraving, which I paid for at the time of purchase. My niece would not have to pay anything to complete the personalization.

There are some great unique baby gifts out there that was mentioned above. My niece was very happy with the special baby gifts that I gave for her baby. She knew where the shop was, but had not gone into it. We made plans that I would go with her during her maternity leave to have the special baby gifts finished off.

And I have found out that one of the unique baby gift that is guaranteed to please is a handmade blanket. When I was a little kid, my grandmother made me be just such a blanket. It was delicate, with a lot of brightly colored yarn. I found it soft and comfortable, and carried it around for years afterwards. By the time I was done with it, it was little more than a bunch of threadbare cotton. Nonetheless, I still loved it.

Remember that some babies, the louder and more flashy a toy, the better. Electronic toys are all the rage for baby shower presents, even if they aren't very unique baby gifts. Kids like things with buttons that you can press to make them flash. Just make sure that the kid doesn't have the same toy already - there's nothing like a duplicate present to disappoint a young child.

Lastly, if you need to find more baby gift for your little ones, you can shop online on baby boutique for infants and toddlers. There you can find a unique gift giving items ideas for your baby.

Free Kitchen Cabinet Plans

Perhaps nothing compares to the true beauty of a cabinet. In the larger scheme of things, a kitchen cabinet is perhaps the greatest of them all. You get elegance, grace, and sophistication in a cabinet. Some people like glass fronts; some people like solid wood. Depending on what you like, free kitchen cabinet plans can help make your dreams a reality.

The Search

First thing you want to do when you search for free kitchen cabinet plans is to hop on the Internet and find yourself a search engine. I prefer Google, but some prefer Yahoo or MSN; there are other search engines such as Dogpile and Go. Pick the one you prefer.

Whichever you choose, they usually allow Boolean expressions. You want to do a search for what you want with "+" in front of them such as +free +kitchen +cabinet +plans. If you are pretty sure you want the kitchen cabinets you may want to make that +kitchen-cabinet (I say cabinet because you will get more hits if you leave off the "s"). A small hint that comes in handy is that usually, you can also use a "-" or minus sign. Such as +free +kitchen-cabinet +plans and then you could add a -naughtyword: naughtyword would then not be allowed in the result.

Now that you have a good idea of how Boolean expressions work, you can find yourself some free kitchen cabinet plans. If you cannot find what you are looking for with one search engine, I suggest you try another search engine. Often, one will not have what another will have. Have fun! Do a lot of searches until you have what you want.

Moving Forward

Once you have found free kitchen cabinet plans that meet your specifications, it is a good idea to thoroughly read those instructions. Then you will be able to carefully purchase the hardware and materials needed to make your kitchen cabinets. Usually, the first thing you should do is grab a measuring tape and some paper with a pencil. You want to take precise measurements of your kitchen and record it on the paper. This is a necessity. I suggest you measure on the inside borders of the walls. This is a great way t o learn exactly what you need.

Tools Please

Okay, now you need the proper tools. I suggest you do this project only if you have current knowledge of the power tools that are required for this project. It is really sticker shock to go out and buy all the tools needed fresh. In addition, you will need a couple of new tools perhaps that you may not have been aware of. Check the instructions for further help.

Material If You Would

Free kitchen cabinet plans are great because they are indeed free. However, you should make sure the instructions are thorough. You should have a good idea of how much material is needed for your project. The measurements you took will be essential during this step. You will want to figure out first what type of material you want. While everyone thinks solid wood is the only choice, I tell you now that it is expensive and it is heavy. Maybe you can afford the expense, but ask yourself how your walls will handle the enormous weight.

Once you have taken an honest look at what material you want to use, I suggest you visit a home improvement store or a hardware store that sells the material you need. Take in your measurements and get the material you need delivered to your home - usually at no additional charge. Do not forget the brackets, nails, screws, and other such smaller hardware. Usually, a store associate will be more than willing to help you get everything you need.

The Next Step

You will obviously want to take out those old kitchen cabinets if you have not yet done so. This is quite the chore. Sometimes, you can save the old ones and sell them, recycle them, or give them to a local charity. However, you accomplish this: those old cabinets have gotta go.

You will want to take the time to clean the walls thoroughly at this point. I like to take bleach water over the whole area and let it dry. This is easy because my husband is now in the workroom with power tools blaring. I check on him and love that pure look of ecstasy that is on his face - I rarely see that look outside of his power tools experience. I go in to help him when he needs help, but this is really an easy chore for people that understand what they are doing and have some concept on how to follow those free kitchen cabinet plans.

The End Is Near

Installing the kitchen cabinet is easy compared to the rest of your kitchen cabinet journey. I suggest you make sure that all of those cabinets are completed before you attempt this step. Sometimes, you will have a cabinet that is slightly off and needs readjusting. I never add the doors until the rest of the base cabinet is installed first. Never completely secure the cabinet until all of the cabinets are installed.

Free kitchen cabinet plans are great because you do not have to spend extra money on a project that is otherwise extremely pricey. Follow your instincts and those instructions for that best and most rewarding kitchen cabinets you have probably ever owned.

Baby Shower Party Favors

Baby showers are delightful occasions when all the people dear to your heart join under one roof to celebrate one of the most important occasions of your life. Since you will be calling people from all the corners of the world, and they will be making the extra effort to come and attend your baby shower, it is important to plan the event accordingly, though this is easier said than done.

Marriage, pregnancy and voila! Before you know it, Junior is here. There is a lot of excitement all around you and you are probably caught in the thick of it all; which is why it is extremely difficult to plan a baby shower party properly. But it pays to start planning the baby shower well in advance. That way, you can enjoy your baby's arrival in style.

Giving appropriate baby shower favors is an important part of the celebration. In fact, every guest who attends the shower party expects to be given a token that is warm and pleasing. As the host, you also need to express your happiness at the effort they have taken to come and grace the occasion. So, yes, there is a lot of emotion involved here. Which is why a great baby shower party favor adds to the beauty of the occasion.

Most baby shower parties have a theme of some sort. In case your party has a theme, selecting an appropriate favor will be easy. Just choose something that suits the theme. Of course, you do not HAVE to select something that plays along the lines of your party theme. You have all the freedom to select something that is entirely unconnected to the theme, if you so wish.

Baby shower parties are expensive affairs, and the baby shower party favors you give away account for a good percentage of your cost. If you do not want your baby shower party to burn a hole through your purse, it is important to plan ahead. Here is a list of points to ponder over before you choose the right favor:
 What is your total budget?
 Do you want to follow a theme?
 How many guests are you expecting?
 Do you want to make the favors yourself?
 If you are ordering your gifts from outside, do you want to personalize your gifts?

If you think only of one gift, it is easy to overshoot your budget. Instead of thinking of the expense per gift, calculate the total cost. This will help you set a budget for your baby shower party favors.
You may purchase baby shower tokens from various online gift shops that specialize in the creation of these items. Many of these online companies have excellent policies when it comes to taking orders and delivering on time. Even so, it is important that you place your order sufficiently early so there will be no chance of a mix up or delay at the last moment.

We at, work hard to provide our customers with personalized & unique wedding favors, bridal shower favors, baby shower favors, Christening (Baptism) favors, Sweet 16 favors, Quinceanera favors, birthday favors and corsages (capias) for all occasions. Call us now at 800.455.9965.

Why Do you Need a Baby Sleep Coach?

Are you a new mom who is worried about your baby not sleeping? Are you forced to get up three or more times a night with your baby? Are you feeling guilty because you have a short fuse with your other children or your spouse? Are you worried about how much longer you can keep up with this insane schedule? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may benefit from the support a baby sleep coach has to offer.

When you first bring your newborn baby home there is an adjustment period. You have to learn to pick up on your baby's cues, at a time when you are so exhausted you can barely think. Knowing what your baby wants doesn't come automatically. Many moms miss the signs that their baby is sleepy, or may confuse overtiredness and crankiness for hunger.

Like many other behavior patterns, sleep patterns are learned over a period of time. The key to helping a baby sleep uninterrupted is teaching them to put themselves back to sleep if they wake. A baby sleep coach can help you and your baby develop healthy sleep habits, and answer the question "How do I get my baby to sleep?"

While child development books can provide valuable information to sleep deprived parents, there is not one single solution that will fit every family. Each situation has its own unique challenges. Attempting to implement a plan from a book, may not work if it doesn't address your baby's specific behaviors. The expertise of a baby sleep coach lies in their ability to devise a plan that works specifically for your family and provides you with someone to answer all of your questions about baby sleep problems.

Sleep coaching is a fairly new concept that many people aren't aware of. By hiring a sleep coach and encouraging stable sleeping patterns for your baby you can dramatically improve your quality of life. The beauty of hiring a baby sleep coach is that he or she will design a plan based on a combination of methods to perfectly suit you and your baby. Once you begin to implement a plan that is personalized for your individual situation, you should quickly see improvement in your baby's sleep habits.

The major advantage of hiring a baby sleep coach is that you are provided with ongoing support. After the initial consultation is completed and the resulting plan set in motion, your sleep coach is just a phone call or e-mail away for support. Many baby sleep coaches even make house calls! This allows you to receive continual guidance to aid you in getting your child to sleep through the night.

Imagine a world in which both you and your infant sleep peacefully through the night - night after night! The expertise of a baby sleep coach can make it happen, and you will never regret having sought help with your baby's sleep problems.

Diaper Cake - Why Producers of "Sex And The City" Order Baby Diaper Cake For A Baby Sh

If you're a "Sex And The City" fan, you know what I'm taking about.

Yes, the diaper cake!

You can find it in the "Baby Shower" episode for the character Miranda.

So why baby diaper cakes are so popular?

I haven't yet found who invented the "diaper cake" idea.

But the result is obvious especially when you're throwing a theme based baby shower.

Since normal baby shower gifts (like diapers and baby bottles) don't really make any exciting (I mean knock the mom-to-be's socks off!), so the baby diaper cake fits perfectly into your shower theme and does double duty as a cute centerpiece.

Mom-to-be loves it.

She is happy to use the items you included in the baby diaper cake for feeding the baby-to-come, such as baby bottles and baby bibs.

She will also be in great joyfulness to take the diaper cake apart and find baby toys you include, such as baby rattles, baby teether toys, and pacifiers.

And she might fall in love with the plush animal you use to top the baby shower diaper cake.

The possibilities are endless.

Finally, it's very easy to make it on your own and show your personal creativity.

Before get it started, you should decide the fit-the-mom "cake recipe" (e.g. your baby items shopping list). Then you can purchase all these infant essentials and decorations from companies like

Then follow a step-by-step instructions from book or the internet, finishing your baby shower cake in many styles and colors, including 1, 2, 3 even 4 wonderful tiers will be easy like watching a movie!

Another reason more people are talking about diaper cakes not only it is no doubt the must-be-no-matter-how baby shower gifts, but also many people have their personal passionate hobby blossoming into a full time business.
