Beyond 50's Secret Shopper

Secret Shopper

If you missed the Spring Home & Garden Show in Oregon, we've got it covered. Beyond 50 is always on the lookout for what's trendy, unique and innovative.

Here's our "Best of Show" finds:
We were thoroughly impressed with the beautiful landscape displays. One booth had these little balls (that look like gumballs) made of clay and fertilizer that are packed with a variety of flowering seeds in them to fill a plant bed with zillions of flowers. You can have a year-round garden by starting seedlings in a special greenhouse that filters out UV rays and disperses light. They grow faster and bigger in this.

If you don't like to mow, why not use a
robotic mower that stays within your lawn's perimeter. It cuts and mulches too. For those with mole problems, this clever little contraption kills moles with a sudden and percussive, hot plasma blast.

Protect you home with a wireless security system so burglars don't cut the line to a wired one. Why not also make sure that you get a
wood floor that muffles out the traffic noise. The secret is a bottom layer that's a thin foam.

At night, you can see your way around better if you place lights around your light switches. And, if you use a wood stove or just pay too much to heat your home, get a soapstone, wood-burning fireplace. You don't have to keep feeding it with logs, just insert a few and leave it there to heat your home for 24-hours. Makes a very small amount of ash, even within a month's time.

Here's what got a Wow! out of us:
The rescue tape that was made for the military. It is self-bonding, creates an air-tight, water-tight seal, water-resistant (even in saltwater), insulates 8,000 volts per layer, withstands 60 degrees below zero to 500 degrees of heat, non-sticky, and can be used as a bandage. The other standout was the unit. If you'd like to quit smoking, these look-alike cigarettes don't have tar or give off ashes. It only contains nicotine and when you exhale, it looks exactly like regular smoke, but it's actually steam. Another lady demonstrated a steam mopper where you put in a little bit of water and out comes 220-degree steam from the mop for cleaning and sanitizing all floor types (from carpet to linoleum). It definitely beats the Swiffer mop. And, if you want to save up to 25% of your electricity costs every month, then hook up this $400 unit called a KVAR Energy Controller (1-800-810-5883) to your top breaker in your home.

PG-50+ Movie Reviews
Beyond 50 only recommends films that are creatively responsible to reveal the finest qualities of the human spirit; allow you to think and feel deeply about life; make your heart soar; and champion human rights.

Waltz with Bashir
Waltz with Bashir
Considered the world's first animated documentary about an Israeli soldier's past wartime deeds that haunt him through recurring dreams. He interviews fellow soldiers he hasn't spoken to in over two decades who help him recall the brutal massacre during the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Israel and Palestine battled for power over control of Beirut. The film is both moving and devastating about the atrocities of war. (Available in select theatres; Genre: Drama, Animation, Documentary; Running Time: 90 min.)



The ClassThe Class
This is a bittersweet film that is more about social realism in a culturally diverse, low-income middle school in Paris. It's an honest look at the challenges faced by a teacher dealing with multi-ethnic and sullen outcasts who are resistant to learning. It's no wonder that the teachers of the school are cynical. "The Class" was filmed using non-actors, real parents, and the characters improvising their way through the scenes. It raises a lot of concerns about these kids as the future of France who meet their class lessons with sarcasm, laziness, and a lack of respect. (Available in select theatres; Genre: Docu-drama; Running Time: 2 hrs., 8 min.)



Pray the Devil Back to HellPray the Devil Back to Hell
This is a fascinating and true story of how the wives and mothers of Liberia had only prayers and protests to stop the guerrilla killing of their people that went on for many years. The country was ruled by Charles Taylor who had an "iron fist" and child soldiers at his command. Besides staging silent protests in front of the presidential palace, one of the peace movement tactics by the women is that the members vowed to withhold sex from their husbands until the civil war ended. (Available in select theatres and private showings nationwide; Genre: Documentary; Running Time: 1 hr., 12 min.)

Predictions for 2009: Year of the Earth Ox



Predictions for 2009: The Year of the Earth Ox
by Elizabeth Peter of Red Lotus

The year of the Earth Ox is symbolized by the elements Yin Earth below Yin Earth. It is a symbiotic relationship between like-minded people: friends, families, organizations or even countries. Earth sitting on top of Earth represents a field or a farmland, rich in soil, offering the promise of nourishment. However, it needs to be cultivated by hard work and sustained patience.

Although this year promises a good future harvest, cultivating the cold, sometimes frozen land in order to bring in a good yield will require hard labor.

Sixty years ago in 1949, reconstruction began in the United States on a grand scale, after the worldwide destruction of a world war. Similarly, this peaceful year hope and optimism will be the driving force as people will be eager to set aside their differences in order to rebuild their lives.

Yin Earth above Yin Earth brings out some healthy competition that could result in new inventions, creative ideas that can advance cultures and offer solutions to the great number of global problems Humanity is faced with. Read Full Story>>
