Texas Horn Chairs

Do you know how much each horn chair cost? It's between $5,000 - $10,000. Holy cow!

According to my research: "Beginning in the 1870's, horn chairs, sofas, halltrees and footstools became fashionable. Some makers such as Wenzel Friedrich (a cabinet maker by trade), Charles Puppe, William Mittmann (all of San Antonio) and many others began making horn furniture on a large scale. Other makers, such as Herman Metz (a St. Joseph, MO fireman) made horn furniture in lesser quantities as a hobby. Plenty of horn furniture was also made in Chicago and St. Louis."

One of the weirdest things that my family and I saw was the Shrunken Heads. It's really odd, but it's important to get to know the history behind it.
Yes, they're real heads!
A shrunken head is a severed and specially prepared human head that is used for trophy, ritual, or trade purposes.

Kayaking

Have you ever tried kayaking before? I've been wanting to try kayaking ever since I moved to the US, but I've never got a chance to do it.  I hope I could try it this summer. First, I have to check to see how much would it cost to buy a new kayak and kayak paddles. Any ideas?

If it is going to be used as a family car, then a spacious car is more suitable for you. If you are able to test drive different models, then do so.

Windows Backup Software

Active computer users accumulate data, information, photos and videos over time. They would usually just store them in their hard drive because they may think that it is the more convenient way of storing them. But most of us are not aware of the importance of regular data backup. It is only when we lose our important files that we become conscious about backing up our data regularly. We can lose our data due to several factors such as when our computers get a virus, gets corrupted and then our hard drive eventually crashes. In most instances, we are not able to recover all of our data. This is why it is important that we invest in windows backup software. This software will allow you to securely store all your important data and have access to them anytime using multiple devices. Your files and data will be protected from any threat and can be recovered and restored easily.

Classic Miniature Golf

We went miniature golfing at Classic Miniature Golf a couple of weekends ago. The place is OK. Hubby and I wasn't too impressed at the place and the course is quiet boring. The place need some improvements and landscaping to attract more customers. It's just too simple.
 But it was a fun experience for the little Miss.
I'm glad we did not pay for the regular price. The owner gave us a 50% military discount which is very nice. But I don't think my family will return there again.
