Smartphone App TrickorTracker Removes Parents' Worries-Kids Can More Safely Enjoy Halloween

Iconosys unveils a new Smartphone app that enables responsible parents to know the exact whereabouts of their trick-or-treating kids without requiring them to follow alongside in the family car (risking the lives of others that may stray into their paths, as they are distracted by the task of diligently watching their children from the car window). 

Iconosys, Inc., has created TrickorTrackerso that parents can safely monitor their kids via their Smartphone, while their children are out and about gathering treats.  TrickorTracker is free of charge for Halloween (it does expire afterwards), or can be purchased for $9.99 thereafter for full lifetime coverage of family members.

How Young is Too Young to Wear Thong Underwear?

I was recently in a major department store shopping for clothes for a little girl.  When passing by the underwear section, I couldn't help but notice there were thong underwear for sale.  I honestly stopped walking and took a second look to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me.  I was kind of shocked to see thong underwear being sold in the girls department for girls wearing sizes 7-14.

Am I alone in thinking that girls between 7 and 14 years old probably shouldn't be wearing thong?  I just think that's too young for thong underwear.  I know that some women wear thong for comfort or to hide underwear lines under their clothing.  I also know some women wear them strictly for sex appeal.  Either way, what age do you think is appropriate for a woman and/or a girl to start wearing thong underwear?

 

This Week @ RAM

This Saturday, the weather is supposed to be PERFECT for both the market AND Saturday night's movie. It will be a great day for visiting our artists and vendors, listening to some great music, and checking out the Antique Cars that will be showcased at the market!

And, we have a special celebrity on our Crossroads Stage, the one-man blues band, Mr. Delta Dave Johnson! You've just gotta see him, man, he's smooooth!

Also, I want to encourage you to "Think Pink @ RAM" this week, and wear pink in support of finding a cure for breast cancer. There will be a few special booths at RAM to provide related info and services.
