The Teal Chronicles

Found: Top Family Ski Resorts Part II

November 28th, 2013

Hello Everyone,

I recently posted Part I of our Top Family Ski Resorts Findings. Scroll down to read Part II, including Western Europe, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and Asia.  And, Happy Thanksgiving!

With snow season rapidly approaching I want to help you get a jump start on trip planning. This year I have compiled a list of top ski destinations by region that are family friendly and include great ski packages, amenities, dining and accommodations. Be aware that some of these resorts will take an hour or so from the airport or train so plan ahead. Traveling with children is not easy, but it’s worth the hassle when you see all that you receive when you arrive to any of these awe inspiring destinations. Listed below are the top family ski resorts by world region. Travel safe and Enjoy!

Warm Regards,

Jenni

Middle East, Africa and Antarctica


 antarctica

 

 

 

 

 

 

These three destinations are not family friendly (unless your kids have already grown up!) and there is a level of high risk. However, for the adventurous adult, the best skiing can be found in Antarctica. Best way to arrive there is to charter a yacht to Antarctica and back for an 11-13 day excursion. Trip will include camping, back country skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking and climbing. Prices range from $4,995 – $27,100. Looks amazing!

Pant-Lightenment: For the Long and Tall, not Big and Tall

November 14th, 2013

IMG_2699

 

 

Men over 6’3 in America equate to 5% of the entire population or 7.7 million men. Big and Tall stores primarily focus on the 36 million male obese market and include the tall niche market to increase their overall total available market. The challenge is that the long and tall man cannot find adequate clothes that fit for their body type, because the Big and Tall stores focus on brands for the bigger man not the longer man.

TEAL Apparel is focused exclusively on designing and manufacturing clothes for the Long & Tall man, because it impacts us personally. Ed and his family are all over 6’3 and are long not big. To say that it’s difficult to find clothes to cover let alone fit us is an understatement. And after talking with other families dealing with the same issue, I realized that there is a large niche market that is underserved. I leveraged my past experience in the retail and finance industries to build a brand that provides tall solutions one garment at a time in order to elevate a tall man’s lifestyle and confidence.

Health and Wellness – Dry Socket: Tall man’s big pain in the mouth

November 7th, 2013

drysocketsmile

 

At the age of 35 my husband, Ed, recently had all four of his wisdom teeth pulled. Once the teeth are removed the body is smart enough to fill in the holes as to prevent infection. However the recovery and pain can be big for a long and tall guy. This recovery condition is called Dry Socket and defined as extreme pain that occurs after a permanent adult tooth is extracted. Sadly, Ed was impacted by this complication and felt like this was an important issue to highlight for would-be patients who may have to extract a tooth.

Beware! If you are long and tall the risks for dry-socket are higher because it takes the body longer to heal and for the bone to close the holes where your tooth once was. The pain is caused by the exposure of the underlying bone and nerves.

So how do you fix the problem?

The way to beat dry socket is to go to your oral surgeon and they will fill the empty tooth socket with a substance in order to prevent the exposed nerve from being contacted. Pain medication and a bottle of Jack Daniels will not be enough.  Your best bet is the oral surgeon whose treatments can reduce the pain and facilitate healing. So, long and tall friends, be aware of potential big pain and know that there are methods to help the healing.

 

Warm Regards,

Jenni
