Established in 1651, Belkin Family Lookout Farm in Natick is holding a free open house this weekend. Located at 89 Pleasant Street South in South Natick, the farm will be open to everyone Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.
Lookout Farm: Children's Play Area
If you aren't familiar with the farm, they have 60,000 fruit trees on 180 acres of land. All grown to be short so they are easy to hand pick. In addition to the orchard, they have a children's play area with a moon bounce, burlap maze, caterpillar ride, and face painting. Later in the season, besides the u-pick fruit, they'll also have a mini-zoo with goats, sheep, donkeys, llamas, and other small, friendly animals, plus camel and ponies rides.

This weekend, and all week over the phone, they'll also be offering discounted season passes. Regularly priced at $99, the pass will be available for only $69 and offers free access to the farm all season long for a family of four. If you can't make it to the farm, just call them at 508-653-0653 to buy.

Hope to see you there.

All My Children & One Life to Live are Back

I'm not a big soap opera person but I love the fact that shows that are canceled on mainstream TV are giving it a go on the net with original programming. This includes things like Netflix's House of Cards, which was never on TV, cable or otherwise. Is it time for America's Most Wanted to try the same thing now that they've been canceled yet again?
The Online Network
The biggie for today, April 29th, is the revived All My Children and One Life to Live. They're back thanks to The Online Network. You can watch them on Hulu (All My Children | One Life to Live) and they will also be available on Hulu+ and iTunes for on-the-go viewing.

The Neck Wraps come in two styles - White Husky or Golden Retreaver. 
Perfect for you or a nice cuddle-puppy for children.
You can even put the heatable insert in the freezer for a cuddly cold pack!

Sacrifice Book Tour - Top Ten Gryphon Series Battles

Author Stacey Rourke
Author Stacey Rourke has her latest stop on The Sacrifice book tour here with her favorite battles from the book series. If you haven't entered yet, don't miss trying to win some Sacrifice book swag, and a $25 Amazon gift card.

Top Ten Gryphon Series Battles 

10.) The Fog Monsters-In book one, The Conduit, the Garrett kids train against these potent monsters. The hard part about fighting these hulking beasts? They are only corporeal when they want to be, the rest of the time their form is purely mist that punches and kicks pass right through. Needless to say that makes kicking their butts tricky!

9.) Darious- the first Seeker that Celeste encounters. He can morph into a black panther and doesn't always abide by the rules of his leaders. Because of him Kendall gets sliced up, and Grams ends up in the hospital. Darious is a tool, but he does take a tranquilizer dart in the butt cheek so that makes it a little better.
