History and Facts about inflatables!

Inflatable castles and similar structures are temporary inflatable buildings and structures that are rented for functions, school and church festivals and village fetes and used for recreational purposes, mainly used by children. The growth in popularity of moonwalks has led to an inflatable rental industry which includes inflatable slides, obstacle courses, games, and more. Inflatables are ideal for portable amusements because they are easy to transport and store.

The name given to such structures varies. They have been marketed with such names as Bounce house, Moon Bounce, Astrojump, Moonwalk, Jolly Jump, Leaping Lodge and Spacewalk. The term “Bounce House” came to popularity with the resurgence of hipster culture in New England. The term ‘Jolly Jumps’ is often used to describe the inflatable playground structure in rural areas and some areas in the Western US, but the term is otherwise obsolete.

Although they are often aimed at children, adult castles can be hired in the UK. Because of liability concerns, moonwalks are rarely rented to adults in the US.

Historically, names for inflatable structures, particularly in the United States, are composed of two, one syllable words. In the United States the terms that consist of two, one syllable words are popular. In Southern California, another popular term is Closed Inflatable Trampolines, or “CITs”. Bouncy Castle or Inflatable Castle are used in Ireland, the UK, New Zealand and parts of Australia, and Jumping Castles in Arizona, Australia, Canada and South Africa. As a whole the term moon bounce has become a generic term for enclosed inflatable trampolines worldwide even though some still cling to the less popular hipster form “Bounce House.”

A balloon is an inflatable flexible bag filled with a gas, such as helium, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, oxygen, or air. Modern balloons can be made from materials such as rubber, latex, polychloroprene, or a nylon fabric, while some early balloons were made of dried animal bladders[citation needed]. Some balloons are used for decorative purposes, while others are used for practical purposes such as meteorology, medical treatment, military defense, or transportation. A balloon’s properties, including its low density and low cost, have led to a wide range of applications. The inventor of the rubber balloon, (the most common balloon) was Michael Faraday in 1824, via experiments with various gases.

A beach ball is an inflatable ball for beach and water games. Their large size and light weight take little effort to propel; they travel very slowly and generally must be caught with two hands, and are usually used for recreation and relaxation.

The beach ball’s invention is usually credited to Jonathon DeLonge in California in 1938

Introducing Ashley Cain

By | Celeb/Act | No Comments

Ashley Cain’s hottest ever photos!

Scroll through the gallery below

The Assembly Rooms is excited to announce Battle of the Sexes with Ashley Cain and Cami Li on Saturday 15th August.

We’ve got some more about the hot TV star for you!

Ashley Thomas Cain is an English footballer who currently plays for Midland Football League Premier Division side Coventry Sphinx, where he plays as a winger. He is also known for starring in MTV series Ex on the Beach.

Ex on the Beach is a British reality television series that is broadcast on MTV. The series was first announced in February 2014 and premiered on 22 April 2014. It features eight single men and women enjoying a summer holiday in paradise whilst looking for love. However, they were joined by their exes to shake things up. Each ex was there either for painful revenge or to rekindle their love.

Ashley made his professional debut for Coventry City as a substitute on 13 April 2009 in a 0–0 Football League Championship draw with Charlton Athletic. During that game Cain had the chance to relegate Charlton Athletic as he went through one on one with the keeper after a bursting run and narrowly missed. He signed a one-year professional contract with the “Sky Blues” in July 2009. He made his first start for the club on 12 August 2009 in a League Cup defeat to Hartlepool United after a successful pre season playing almost every minute of every single game for Coventry.

Boston in Bloom 2015

By | News | No Comments

It’s the second year The Assembly Rooms has taken part in the local “Boston in Bloom” campaign.

Here’s a little more about the campaign:

In 2012 is was the first time Boston had entered the prestigious Britain in Bloom Campaign.

Organised by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) the Campaign seeks to bring about community involvement in making lasting improvements to areas for everyone who lives, works and visits there.

Local interest in environmental and community projects is strong and vibrant in the town. Many organisations are playing their part in helping to make the town centre and surrounding area cleaner and greener.

RHS Britain in Bloom involves over one thousand communities across the UK each year. Communities first participate in the region “in Bloom” and from there they can be nominated to participate in the RHS Britain in Bloom Finals. In Boston’s case we are competing in the Large Town Category of the East Midlands region (up to 35,000 electors), which has attracted 11 entrants.

We plan to make improvements year-on-year building on the feedback from the RHS judges and have already started to identify activities and projects that we could do to enhance next year’s “in-Bloom” campaign.

Boston in Bloom has the potential to help improve not only the reputation of the town but also to enhance the visitor economy, build civic pride and tackle the physical eyesores that exist. It also has the potential to build bridges among communities, engage with more vulnerable groups and provide a coherent framework for “greening up” Boston.

Here’s our input in 2015’s Boston in Bloom

Here’s a little more about Tequila and it’s origin.

Tequila is a regional specific name for a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 km (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the north western Mexican state of Jalisco. Although tequila is a kind of mezcal, modern tequila differs somewhat in the method of its production, in the use of only blue agave plants, as well as in its regional specificity.

The red volcanic soil in the surrounding region is particularly well suited to the growing of the blue agave, and more than 300 million of the plants are harvested there each year. Agave tequila grows differently depending on the region. Blue agaves grown in the highlands Los Altos region are larger in size and sweeter in aroma and taste. Agaves harvested in the lowlands, on the other hand, have a more herbaceous fragrance and flavor.

Mexican laws state that tequila can only be produced in the state of Jalisco and limited municipalities in the states of Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas. Tequila is recognized as a Mexican designation of origin product in more than 40 countries. It is protected through NAFTA in Canada and the United States, through bilateral agreements with individual countries such as Japan and Israel,[5] and has been a protected designation of origin product in the constituent countries of the European Union since 1997.

Tequila is most often made at a 38–40% alcohol content (76–80 U.S. proof), but can be produced between 31 and 55% alcohol content (62 and 110 U.S. proof).

The two basic categories of tequila are mixtos and 100% agave. Mixtos use no less than 51% agave, with other sugars making up the remainder. Mixtos use both glucose and fructose sugars.

Tequila is usually bottled in one of five categories:

Blanco “white” or plata “silver”: white spirit, unaged and bottled or stored immediately after distillation, or aged less than two months in stainless steel or neutral oak barrels

Joven”young” or oro “gold”: unaged silver tequila that may be flavored with caramel coloring, oak extract, glycerin, or sugar-based syrup. Could also be the result of blending silver tequila with aged and/or extra-aged tequila.

Reposado “rested”: aged a minimum of two months, but less than a year in oak barrels of any size

Añejo “aged” or “vintage”: aged a minimum of one year, but less than three years in small oak barrels

Extra Añejo (“extra aged” or “ultra aged”): aged a minimum of three years in oak barrels, this category was established in March 2006.

With 100% agave tequila, blanco or plata is harsher with the bold flavors of the distilled agave up front, while reposado and añejo are smoother, subtler, and more complex. As with other spirits aged in casks, tequila takes on the flavors of the wood, while the harshness of the alcohol mellows. The major flavor distinction with 100% agave tequila is the base ingredient, which is more vegetal than grain spirits (and often more complex).

The History of House Music

House music is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in Chicago in the early 1980s. It was initially popularized in Chicago, circa 1984. House music quickly spread to other American cities like Detroit, New York City, and Newark – all of which developed their own regional scenes. In the mid-to-late 1980s, house music became popular in Europe as well as major cities in South America, and Australia. Early house music commercial success in Europe saw songs such as “Pump Up The Volume” by MARRS (1987), “House Nation” by House Master Boyz and the Rude Boy of House (1987), “Theme from S’Express” by S’Express (1988) and “Doctorin’ the House” by Coldcut (1988) in the pop charts. Since the early to mid-1990s, house music has been infused in mainstream pop and dance music worldwide.

Early house music was generally dance-based music characterized by repetitive 4/4 beats, rhythms mainly provided by drum machines, off-beat hi-hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines. While house displayed several characteristics similar to disco music, it was more electronic and minimalistic, and the repetitive rhythm of house was more important than the song itself. House music in the 2010s, while keeping several of these core elements, notably the prominent kick drum on every beat, varies a lot in style and influence, ranging from the soulful and atmospheric deep house to the more minimalistic microhouse. House music has also fused with several other genres creating fusion subgenres, such as euro house, tech house, electro house and jump house.

In the late 1980s, many local Chicago house music artists suddenly found themselves presented with major label deals. House music proved to be a commercially successful genre and a more mainstream pop-based variation grew increasingly popular. Artists and groups such as Madonna, Janet Jackson, Björk, Aretha Franklin, Steps, Paula Abdul, Aqua, and C+C Music Factory incorporated the genre into their work. After enjoying significant success in the early to mid-90s, house music grew even larger during the second wave of progressive house (1999–2001). The genre has remained popular and fused into other popular subgenres, for example, G-house, Deep House, Tech House and Bass House. As of 2014, house music remains popular in both clubs and in the mainstream pop scene while retaining a foothold on underground scenes across the globe.
