Imagine Lady Gaga & Shakespeare creating a love child…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Concert Fantastic is an impressive production for the whole family.  The LAB LV and Super Summer Theatre are proud to bring you Shakespeare’s beloved tale, told anew, with iconic song and dance; combining Shakespeare’s classic text with today’s favorite music!  This outlandish, kid-friendly stage show runs from June 26 through July 13.

If you’re not familiar, the basis of the story is the Duke of Athens is to wed the Amazon Queen, whom he has taken captive after battle.  But when the King and Queen of Fairies have fantastical fallout in the forest, as they journey to the wedding, two pairs of star-crossed lovers get tangled in a web of confusion and jealousy!  What could possibly go wrong that a dash of fairy magic can’t fix?!

Never been to the Spring Mountain Ranch, (just west of Las Vegas past Red Rock National Park) to see a show?  Go see one or all the shows that are playing this season – and bring the entire family.  Bring a blanket or chairs plus some food and refreshments and maybe a sweater (it’s much cooler there than down in the valley) In my opinion, it is the best live-theatre venue in our valley.

The rest of the summer season is filled with of great shows like Annie, Chicago and Noises Off.  All the information you need is at the web site, https://supersummertheatre.org/current-season/#.

Water Watcher Cards and Water Safety

I am re-posting this blog as I feel this subject is a very important topic and we cannot be reminded to often to take all precautions when dealing with kids and swimming pools.  There are many swimming classes given in the Las Vegas Valley – let’s keep all children safe.

Its summer in Las Vegas and we all know what that means – hot weather and relaxing in the swimming pool to escape the heat and still be outdoors.  However water safety is a must do especially if you have children.

That is why I am giving out Water Watcher Cards to adults that agree to be responsible and supervise the kids in the water without distraction.  If there are several adults around the Water Watcher Card is passed to another responsible adult that will also supervise the kids and keep them safe in the water.

First of all when you have a backyard pool you should install fences around the pool.  The fence should surround all sides of the pool and be at least four feet tall.  The opening gate to the pool should be self-closing and self-latching gates.  The Health District in Las Vegas also advises putting an alarm on the gate.

It might be wise to take a class in what to do in an emergency – learn CPR and water rescue skills – this can help in saving a life.  If you have children you might want to enroll them in swimming classes.

This advice is not only for your backyard pool.  Be a Water Watcher when your family goes to a water park or community pool.  Keep your eyes on your children – there are usually life guards on duty however they cannot watch everyone all the time.

If you have toddlers in the home make sure all bathtubs are empty of water – did you know a baby can drown in an inch of water?  Also get into the habit of putting all toilet seats down so curious toddlers do not get into them.

Water safety also means dealing with monsoon rains and if you are taking out a boat on Lake Mead – those topics are for another blog.

Become a Water Watcher and contact me for a card, and take care of what is most precious in the world – children.

What should a Home Buyer do right away once they own their home?

Hooray you just bought a new home – whether it is your first home or second or third congratulations.  Besides packing and moving as well as getting utilities turned on there are four other items you should do once you have closed on your new home.

  1. You will most likely not know when the batteries were changed in your new home’s smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detector. After that you should change the batteries twice a year and to make it simple to remember change them at the same time you move your clocks back or forward for Daylight savings time. Also, if the home is more than 10 years old check the date that the smoke detectors were installed (usually on the back). If it has been longer than 10 years, replace them and write the installation date on the new ones in the appropriate place. Although this will cost a few bucks, it may save your life someday.
  2. Replacing air filters in your new home is one of the best things you can do to reduce maintenance or failure issues. Go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and get an  air filter – if you or anyone in the family has allergies get a HEPA filter.  Both these stores carry many different filters in all sizes.

In the Las Vegas area most filters are located in the ceiling.  For some this is a challenge to open the latches on the grill and keep the old filter from falling.  Here is a little trick you might want to use. Before climbing the ladder, go to the thermostat. There are hundreds of thermostats out there but almost all of them will have two switches or buttons. One for “System” and one for “Fan”. The fan switch or button will have two settings: “AUTO” and “On”. The normal position for the fan should be AUTO. But when changing out the air filters you should switch the setting to “On”.

Now, when you unlatch the grill, the filters will stay in place because they will be held in position by the suction of the fan. Before you install the new filter.  When you place the filters in the proper position in the system return, the suction from the fan will hold them in place making it much easier to close the grill.

  1. Change locks and codes. This is an important safety issue – you and your family or anyone else that lives with you should be the only people that should have a key and know the codes to your alarm system and if you have a keypad on the garage door.  Unfortunately there are a lot of bad people out there looking for a home to rob.  Take every precaution to make sure it is not yours. Even if the old owners have left the city (or even the country) you do not know who they have given keys to over the years. You also change your mailbox lock (if you have one) or the same reasons; but you don’t do that yourself. You go to the post office with your final settlement statement in the first 30 days after closing and they will do it for free! (They will do it after 30 days have passed also, but you have to pay for it)

  1. Verify the settings on your irrigation system control panel. Did you know that lawn sprinkler systems are one of the most damaging components to Las Vegas homes? It is super important that you review the settings on your panel to ensure they are correct. The settings for your panel are easy to find. The Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD) has promulgated all the required schedules on their website. You only need to enter your address. The link is here: https://www.lvvwd.com/conservation/mandatory-watering-schedule/index.html   Keep to the correct days or you might be fined by SNWA seriously, I have seen their new enforcement trucks driving around).
