Bassinet with stand from stroller. Is it the vista you're considering? We also got the canvas bags so now the bassinet stand is a laundry basket/storage. [ Reply | More ]

ok, sorry I had to step away. Ok, it's actually simple. A large touchscreen monitor that hangs in family space and acts as a live calendar.

You can also text to it for general sidebar messages. I REALLY need this, thus the idea. [ Reply | More ]

Eh, most big cities in America went to shit in the late 1960's basically the liberal city governments ordered the police to stop arresting criminals. there was very little space in the prisons anyway. So most cities were horrible in the early 1970s. Then voters agreed to pay for massive new prison construction, and this prison construction has allowed society to lock up most criminals.
