Showtime in the Parks in Daytona Beach


Showtime in the Parks in Daytona Beach
Friday, August 12, 2022

Enjoy a showing of “Space Jam: A New Legacy” starring LeBron James Friday, Aug. 12, at Suburbia Park at 700 Heineman St.

When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
The gates at the park will open at 7:30 p.m. Attendees can enjoy games and activities, a DJ and free hotdogs, drinks, popcorn and candy. The movie will begin at 8:30 p.m. Guests should bring lawn chairs and blankets.

Cat door review


Last week, I saw a cat door in someone's house and immediately felt that I had to have it. For years, I've wanted my husband to install a pet door on our laundry room door. The litterbox is in the laundry room, so the door always has to stay open some. He never got around to installing a pet door, and I cringed at always seeing the door opened some. Once I saw the cat door there was no holding me back!

I went home and ordered it from Amazon and yesterday he installed it. The product says it is easy to install. It really should be, but let me be honest in saying that it isn't. It took him about two hours to install it, following the directions. No matter what he tried, the product wasn't lining up right, which mean he had to figure out a solution. He trimmed more of the door off than what the original pattern called for, and that did the trick. He was able to get it together.

While it wasn't the easiest to install, I love the finished product. The cat door is so cute! The cats immediately went over to check it out and started going through it. Now I can keep the door closed and I have a cute cat outline for the cat door. I wanted to share this, because you may love it, too!
