Auction Site for Great Deals

How would you like to get the latest iPad for less than $50? or the iPhone 4s for under $25? If you are thinking that I am must be crazy or just plain telling lies, think again. I came across this wonderful auction site known as where you can buy fantastic products for pennies on a dollar.

It is a simple deal the latest products in the market are sold on this site and the starting price for all is just $0.01. Subscribers like you and me will start bidding on the products as the auction progresses, each bid will take the product price up by $0.01. That is cool isn't it. If you are not satisfied there is a 100% cash back option.

Still not convinced just visit reviews and find out more about the unique auction site. Of course if you want more details you can always call customer service hotline which works 24/7.

Then there is something I love on, every day all registered members get a chance to spin the virtual wheel and win fantastic prizes including iPad 2, bid packs, and more. That is what I would call a uniquely useful website.

If you are still not a member go ahead and become one. Don't miss all the great deals available out there.

Life Forms in Sheldon Lake State Park

While at Sheldon Lake State Park and Environmental Learning Center I happened to spot some species of urban wildlife such as chameleon, and turtle. Of course there were signs warning us of alligators, armadillos, rabbits, and other species we didn't see any. Here are the more pictures of Sheldon Lake and the state park area.

Spring Break - 2012

Today is the last day of Spring Break - a week long holiday to enable students to enjoy the onset of spring. Having lived in US for the past four odd years this is the first time I participated in the break like a typical American student. Yes! I went on a short three day trip to the beach side holiday island resort of Galveston, TX. Before going to Galveston, we stopped at Houston and visited the Sheldon Lake State Park and Environmental Learning Center. This post is about Sheldon Lake, the first stop in our spring break tour.

Sheldon Lake is probably the only state park in Texas that has no entry fees. The park ranger was surprised to see me flash my State Parks Pass and thanked me for supporting them by buying the same. We took the map and went around to explore the park. This is mostly being used as an environmental learning center for high school and college students. There are several small ponds built in a row with walking trails to provide access to each one of them. Two are open to public for fishing and no license or fee is to be paid if you are going to catch and release the fish.

There are several other attractions at the state park one can walk the .5 mile pond loop trail that meanders around all the small research ponds. There are other places along the way worthy of visiting such as the Fishing Deck, Floating Deck, Bridge, Pond Center, Heron Plaza, etc. There is an interesting sub trail known as the Bent Pine Trail about which I will be posting soon. For now enjoy the pictures of Sheldon Park.
