My Vacation

I just got back from a vacation with my Grandpa. We took a train to New York City. It took 2 days to get to New York and we were there for the weekend. I went to get away from my baby sister and to see some ships.

The first ship I went to was the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier. It is a museum now. My Grandpa and I went all over the Intrepid. Next to it was the USS Growler. That is a submarine. My Grandpa couldn't go in the submarine because it has a small hatch and he was to big. I was the right size so I got to go in it by myself. We also got to go in the Concorde. That was right next to the Intrepid also. Here are some pictures of the Intrepid.

In this picture you can see the submarine. But it is an older picture so the Concorde is not there.

When we came home on the train we had a sleeper car. There is a bed like a bunk bed that I got to sleep in. It is on the wall and it has a handle that you pull it down with. Grandpa slept in the chairs because they turn in to a bed. The train ride home was long because the train was late leaving New York. I was suppose to be home at 9:30am this morning and we didn't get home until 2:30pm. By the time we got to my house it was 4:00pm I fell asleep in the car.

My younger sister is here she missed me a lot, but my older sister is at camp in Michigan. She comes home on Friday. She took a train too but her ride was not as long as mine.


Tomorrow I go back to Tae Kwondo, no more vacations for awhile.

I never realised how important a good bed was until I got a bad back�.
Over 1,400 members of BackCare, the national organisation for healthy backs, responded to our Back Your Bed survey - the first of its kind to explore the views on beds of those who suffer from bad backs and the experts who treat them.
SUMMARY OF THE BACK YOUR BED SURVEY RESULTS
Buying a good bed is one of the most important purchases you can make when it comes to back pain relief. Nine out of 10 say their bed is more important to them since they developed back pain; 98% agreed that a good, supportive bed could help a bad back. 82% of experts felt that the right bed could help prevent back pain.
"If you cannot rest properly and sleep well, this hinders recovery from back problems."
A firm, supportive bed, not a hard one, can do wonders to ease and even prevent bad backs. Only 22% of sufferers had bought a bed classed as �orthopaedic�; while 28% describe their bed support as �medium�. Only 6% of experts would recommend an orthopaedic bed to patients.

Three quarters would be prepared to spend more than �500 on a new bed: compared with just 36% of the �normal� population. Nearly one in 10 would pay more than �2,000 for a new bed to get the comfort and relief they need.
Back pain sufferers are twice as likely as the rest of the population to own a new bed - 50% have beds that are less than five years old compared to the national average of 24%.
88% are satisfied with their choice � but 16% said they would get a better quality one next time; while 9% would opt for something firmer; 5% said they would choose a softer bed and 4% wanted a bigger one.

Sufferers are three times more likely to replace their beds when they no longer feel comfortable (65% compared with just 20%).
31% own a king size bed compared with 11% generally. Separate mattresses zipped together are also popular with couples whose support needs differ or who are easily disturbed by their partner's movements. top
So worth considering when buying a

Choosing the right Bed: Bedcare
Proper care will keep your bed in good condition. Always read and retain manufacturers care instructions and ask your retailer for advice, too. Otherwise, the following tips will help you to get the best out of your bed during its natural life.
Use a washable, protective cover to protect the mattress (and pillows) from stains. Barrier fabrics for allergy sufferers are also available.
In the mornings, throw back the bed clothes and leave the bed to air for 20 minutes to allow body moisture to evaporate.
Turning your mattress over from side and side and end to end every few months (every week for the first three months) helps upholstery fillings to settle down more evenly. Some more luxurious mattresses, with much thicker layers of fillings designed to mould themselves to the contours of your body, may retain signs of these impressions, despite turning.
Don�t make a habit of sitting on the edge of the bed and don�t let the kids bounce on it.
Don�t roll up or squash a mattress to store or transport it - this can cause permanent damage.
Handles are designed to help you position a mattress on its base - do not use them to support the full weight of the mattress - they may pull out and damage the fabric.
Don�t leave polythene wrappings on a new mattress - dampness, mildew and rotting could all result from a build-up of condensation.
Vacuum your mattress and base from time to time to remove fluff and dust. This should be carefully done so as not to dislodge fillings or damage tufts. Open windows while vacuuming -especially if there is an asthma sufferer in the house.
When tackling stains, use mild detergent and warm or cold water. Never over soak a mattress or base.
Putting a new mattress on a base for which it was not intended, a new mattress on an old base or a board between the mattress and base can impede comfort and reduce the useful life of the mattress - as well as affecting any guarantees or warranties.
Out with the Old: Once you�ve bough yourself a new bed, make arrangements to have the old one disposed of (many retailers will do this for you). Don�t give it to the children, relatives, guests or neighbours. If it wasn�t good enough for you, it�s not good enough for anyone else, either. In fact, it�s a veritable health hazard - get rid of it
Definately something to think about if you plan to buy a
