Every child deserves to celebrate his or her birthday

Every child deserves to celebrate his or her birthday, and throwing an awesome birthday party is the best way to keep the young ‘uns happy. You don’t need a professional event planner. All you have to do is some creative thinking and hard work, and get together the right party supplies. The pay-off is getting to see the kids have an incredible time.

Remember to consult with the most important person in all this – the birthday boy or girl – and your party planning will be all the better for it. There’s really no point in having that party if the kids aren’t having a lot of fun. So talk it over: ideas for a theme, food and drink, candy, party games, favors, all of it. See that you can give them what they actually want. It’ll be a little trickier if you’re going for a surprise party, but even then you can ask their friends and/or siblings for their opinions. It might be wise to ensure that nobody lets the cat out of the bag, though.

Theme Party Ideas

The most successful children’s birthday parties kick off with a cool theme. The possibilities are literally endless, just like your child’s imagination. From the sunny beach theme that’ll remind her of her favorite summer vacations, to the cartoon superhero group that he loves to read about – anything will do as long as your child loves it.

The Wild West Lives Again

One of the most popular themes is the wild western. Young children are full of dreams of adventure and excitement, and the cowboy cuts an especially heroic figure. It’s thrilling to think about the glorious days. Imagine a cattle drive, or a rousing pioneer song around the campfire, or even a stampede – not even adults are immune to the romance of cowboy stories. Yes, a cowboy’s life might seem somewhat lonely – but your child certainly won’t be on the day of the party!

Play some lively motorcycle dolly suppliers western music at the party. Bring out the classic tunes and maybe even teach the guests some square dancing steps or the two-step. This will work best if you practice before the party, and try not to have any performance anxiety! To keep the theme strong, introduce some old-time cowboy lingo. Kids learn fast, so be prepared for a room full of “Howdy, pardners!”

When it comes to costumes, remember, it’s all about make-believe. A few handy props and some boys’ cowboy boots will do fine. The party will also be fun for the adults planning it: you can cut horseshoe-shaped party invitations out of colored construction paper.

The Proof is in the Cake

This one’s obvious: a delicious birthday cake. No worries if your baking skills leave something to be desired: there are bakeries that take elaborate custom orders. For a cowboy-themed party, a cake shaped like a ranch would be fun, and you can save on time. Don’t forget to find out in advance what flavor the birthday boy or girl prefers!

Choosing the right Motorcycle helmet can make a difference

Choosing the right Motorcycle helmet can make a difference?

?.literally between life and death. But how does an ordinary guy in the street make an informed decision about what kind of helmets give the best protection? There are so many makes, models and styles. Not to mention DOT approved, Snell approved, ECE approved! It is enough to make you go goggle eyed when confronted with so much information.

Tests have shown that it is perfectly possible to suffer a fatal injury falling off a stationary bike if you hit your unprotected head on the kerb, so clearly choosing the right helmet is important.

But which one?

Wouldn’t it be easier if someone just said, ?Look, when you are in a crash, you need to protect this part of you head, because this is the part that is most likely to get hurt??

Well that’s what I thought. But it wasn’t that easy. The kind of information you need to make that kind of call requires someone, somewhere to look at a whole bunch of motorcycle crashes, look at the motorcycle helmet damage, assess where point of impact occurred and put the information into a form that allows  ordinary motorcyclists (like you and me) to make a decision for themselves.

However, the good news is that if you look hard enough, the information is available. A study was carried out a few years ago by Deitmar Otte, at the Medizinsche Hochschule in Hannover, Germany on the damage incurred to helmets worn by motorcyclists vehicle dolly factory involved in accidents. His analysis was extremely detailed; in fact it was far to detailed for me to go into here, but it was extremely important.

What I am going to do is tell you in a nutshell, what parts of your head are most likely to be hurt in a motorcycle accident, based on Herr Otte’s findings. The rest is up to you?

Take a motorcycle helmet and look at it from the front. Now imagine it is divided into three sections; the top (the cranium area) the middle (the area most likely covered by the visor) and the bottom (on a full face helmet, this would be the chin guard area). If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, and you hit your head you would have a 35% chance of the impact occurring to your chin area, 10% to your visor area, and 22% chance of the impact occurring to your front cranium area.

Now turn the helmet around. Looking at it from the back, divide it in two down the middle. In an accident, if you hit you head, you have a 16% chance of impact occurring on the back of you head to the left side, and a 17% chance of impact occurring on the back right side.

Conclusion? Well, this is only my personal conclusion but I would say the following?

The safest helmets are full face helmets?

Second would be three quarter helmets with visors?

Third would be half helmets?

Last would be novelty helmets.

There are lots of reasons people wear helmets. However, if safety is you main consideration, then take a good look at the full face helmets on the market, take some time and find one which you can wear comfortably on every ride.
