With everything that is going on, we’re the first to admit that house stuff feels trivial, but we’re keeping our podcast going in the hope that it’s a welcome escape for anyone who tunes in (it’s definitely a nice one Distraction for us). . This week we answer the most common question we have received in the past few days: How does the corona virus affect our move to Florida and our home sales (spoiler alert: a contract has failed). We’re also having a weirdly thorough discussion about high-tech toilets and bidets. We also share two things that help us make the most of being around the clock with children at home.
- Note: As promised, at the end of this post we summarized ways you can help people during the pandemic
- If you need the background story for some of the news that we’ve informed you about today, these links are helpful:
Can we only talk about bidets?
- Here is the article from NPR’s Planet Money that opened the locks for this discussion Why America Loses the Toilet Race
- Pictured above is a Toto Washlet that is available on websites such as Way Fair and Amazon at different prices and models (some over $ 1000! only for the seat!)
- And below is the video on the Toto Washlet website that dances a lot around the topic.
- On the other hand, the Tushy website the topic is much cheekier (pun intended).
- The Tushy (and Tushy spa with temperature control) are considerably cheaper and do not require an outlet, but obviously have far fewer functions than some of the more expensive bidets.
- Slow clapping for them too Tushy ottoman for spinning the term “ottoman” in one of the most creative ways we’ve ever seen (it is basically a competitor of the squatty potty. Speaking of this bamboo version the Squatty Potty doesn’t look bad.
- We also mentioned our previous experience Cloth diapers our children (more on that Here), including Adding a spray attachment to our toilet. They don’t seem to sell the bumGenius branded version we use (at least I can’t find them anywhere online), but they do this seems similar.
- Finally, I have to link to them Trip Johnuh Disposable urinal bag that Sherry ordered at this stage of the denial / trial about a week ago. Yowza.
We are digging
- Here’s a look at the Lego Masters show we saw as a family on Hulu (regular at Fox, but I can buy it too) Youtube and Amazon).
- We mentioned the “Cut In Half” challenge from an episode in which participants had to complete the other side of an object cut in half (like a bicycle or a cuckoo clock). But instead of literally completing it, you should put a creative twist or interpretation on it. This started out as half of a telescope (below) and the players used it to bring the idea of childhood exploration and imagination to life. That cloud of smoke under the rocket.
- Oh, and if you want to follow your family walks or walks, it’s free Map My Walk App that we used.
