The Batman LEGO toy features all of the Batman Villains in the show. It also features Batman’s all time nemesis Joker. Kids all over will love this toy LEGO made. Batman is one of the better toys I have tried. So, if you’re near any place that sells LEGO toys pick one up. This toy is for kids ages 7 and older. Visit: www.lego.com.

The Lucky Strike Bowling Alley is a historic place in Hollywood, where families can go bowling together and have lots of fun. You choose your own bowling ball to play with, and a light ball is recommended for kids, they also rent bowling shoes. While you are waiting to get your lane you can play pool or pinball and when you are paged by the electronic device they give you, you go to your assigned lane to begin. You can play with bumpers or no bumpers; they keep you from getting gutter balls. For kids it is a good idea to get the bumpers until they learn to bowl well. You can order snacks and drinks while you are playing. It’s a sure way to have fun!

One of my favorite food celebrities Chef Harry Schwartz will once again be working with the National Watermelon Promotion Board to take a tour around the country in his special watermelon-themed bus, the Watermelon Express, making personal appearances and spreading the word about delicious and nutritious value of watermelon. He will share great watermelon recipes with people he meets along the way.

Chef Harry has written a great book: Fit Foundation: A Guide to Help Achieve Good Health for America's Overweight Youth. Harry Schwartz was an overweight kid himself, and is devoted to helping kids avoid obesity and low self-esteem by helping them learn how to eat right. Harry will be doing a book tour to promote his new book dedicated to helping children change their lives forever.
