Social Networking Security: How to Not to Be Victimized on Facebook & Twitter

Posting personal information is inevitable when it comes to social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter. However, before posting any information believed as safe to post online, and even before creating an account log in or password for the sites, consider the following scenario, and then read on to see how to make social networking profiles safer and account passwords more secure.

The Bronk Facebook Incident

George Samuel Bronk, an otherwise nondescript man without much to do, was able to hijack e-mail and Facebook accounts, while using information obtained from those accounts to blackmail possibly thousands of victims from January to September 2010. Even though Bronk has since been caught, the nine months he was actively stealing information and blackmailing his victims was enough to devastate their lives. Bronk pleaded guilty to seven federal felony charges including child pornography, computer intrusion, and false impersonation that could land him in a federal prison for six years.

Information Was There for the Taking

It all started when Bronk obtained personal information from his victims’ Facebook profiles, information his victims posted openly and willingly, thinking it would not only be fun, but safe as well. Information obtained included favorite animals, colors, songs, siblings and friends’ names, phone numbers, IM addresses and more. However, the most important pieces of information Bronk obtained allowed him access to the victims’ Facebook and email accounts.

Using the personal and “safe’ information found on public profiles available for anyone to see, he was able to do one of two things; he either guessed a password correctly, or he was able to answer the password retrieval secret question correctly, which are the security challenge questions email services ask when a user has lost his or her password.

After gaining control of the victims’ accounts, he searched for sensitive photos, emails and other data. What he found were numerous nude photos for which he used to blackmail the account owners. In some cases, he simply emailed the photos to the victims’ entire contact lists. In both cases, Bronk was able to hijack a confirmed 46 accounts and possibly up to 3,200 more, according to police, who are awaiting the outcome of a survey sent to Bronk’s possible victims. They will use the survey to determine how many women Bronk victimized in total.

How to Stop This from Happening

While most people are aware that online security is necessary, and reigning in the type of personal information they post to the Internet should be controlled, most are not so vigilant when posting information to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Because of the “It can’t happen to me” attitude that many possess, cruel people such as George Samuel Bronk find it extremely simple to victimize them.

While it is unlikely that people will stop posting information on social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter, some easy steps to minimize victimization do exist. They include:

Never use a “favorite” for a password . Even if a person uses a favorite thing as a login or user name, if the password is different from any information already posted online, the chances of someone guessing that password is minimized.

Never use a birthday, place of birth, maiden name, childhood favorites, or similar information. When people “grow up,” they tend to change their social circles and believe that using this information is safe because the people they hang out with now are not the same people with whom they grew up; however, one never knows if a person from their childhood is out to get them, or wants revenge for some childhood prank. This person could surface one day and, knowing the answers to these questions, could easily gain access to an online account to seek revenge.

Furthermore, just like in anything on this planet, for you not to be a victim of scam or fraud online, you should educate yourself and arm yourself with all the necessary information about social networking sites. You can check an anchor that offers great quality and reliable information.

M ake up a random password that is easy to remember . Yes, everyone has heard this before, but hardly anyone does it because they end up writing down the password anyway, thus defeating the purpose of a secure, hard to guess but simple to remember password.

Combat Weak Passwords

One easy way to combat this is by picking seemingly random keys in a particular order and using at least 10 characters. For example, use every second key starting from the bottom row and work to the left and upwards, and then back down and to the right. Using this example, the password might be, “?ky32qdbk[” and would be almost unhackable, unless the person hacking it knew the particular sequence used to pick the password.

Using a sequence such as this one allows for a “random” password with a pattern, so that it is easier to remember and the user does not have to write it down-an act that defeats the purpose of a secure, hard to guess but simple to remember password. Then, after choosing a password, plug it into a trusted password checker, such as that from Microsoft. It will determine whether the password chosen is weak, good or strong.

Being vigilant and closely monitoring personal, but public information and using different information for passwords can drastically reduce the number of accounts victimized by people like George Samuel Bronk. All it takes is vigilance and common sense, and the Internet can become a safer place.

Cooking Mexican Spanish Style Cuisine

I think it’s pretty safe to say that most people love Spanish style food, whether it’s Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican or Dominican does not make a difference to me. All Spanish style cuisine tastes wonderful. Although I have had some that I would not repeat having, but for the most part I love Spanish style food. During the time I lived in New York was 1994-2002 and I made several friends that were Puerto Rican, Dominican and Mexican. They all thought me how to cook authentic Spanish style cuisine. I do have a few favorite dishes and one of them is “Pollo Guisado” otherwise known as Stewed Chicken in English. Pollo Guisado is amazingly tender and juicy, full of flavor and spices and is usually served over Rice. I personally like to serve Pollo Guisado with yellow rice, pink beans and fried sweet plantains. Below is the recipe for the Pollo Guisado, Yellow Rice and the Pink beans. My beer of choice to match to this dish would defiantly be Corona Extra. The bold flavors of the beer would accentuate this amazing dish beautifully. You could go with another Mexican beer called Tecate, but I find that this beer leaves a lingering bitter taste after you drink it. So I choose the unparalleled flavor, the unmistakable color and the one of a kind taste that Corona Extra offers.

Pollo Guisado Ingredients (this will feed a family of 6)

• 2 ½ lbs of chicken (can use boneless, skinless breast or skinless thighs)

• 1 Medium Yucca Root (or 2 small)

• 1 teaspoon salt

• 4 tablespoons Sofrito

• 3 to 4 small cans Heinz tomato sauce (this will depend on how much chicken you use)

• 1 Jalapeno (fresh use half- if in a jar use about 8 slices)

• 1 bay leaf

• 1 ½ tablespoons white vinegar

• 1 lg Onion (chopped)

• 1 lg Bell Pepper (chopped)

• 7 Cloves Garlic finely chopped (I sometimes use 8 or 9 cloves)

• ½ a bunch of Cilantro (finely chopped)

• 4 Packages of Goya Sazone (this can be found on the international food isle)

Pollo Guisado Preparation

This dish can be made in the Oven, Stove or Crock-pot

First make sure that you wash your chicken before you work with it. After washing place chicken in a large mixing bowl, add 4 packages of sazone, white vinegar, salt, chopped garlic and sofrito mix together and put the seasoned chicken into the crock-pot. Add 3 cans tomato sauce, chopped onion, bell pepper, jalapeno and cilantro and mix together, if the sauce does not cover the chicken then add the 4th can of tomato sauce. Peel yucca root and cut into 2 inch cubes then add to the chicken mixture.

Crock-pot cooking instructions-

Place all ingredients in the crock-pot and cook on high for several hours, usually takes 6 hours or until chicken is tender.

Stove cooking instructions-

Place all ingredients in a large saucepan and cook on medium heat for 1 hour 20 minutes. If you cook this dish on the stove, it will require more attention and can possibly burn.

Oven cooking instructions-

Place all ingredients in a 9 by 13 inch pan, cover with tinfoil and bake on 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Yellow Rice Ingredients and Preparation

• 4 Cups water

• 2 Cups Jasmine Rice (or plain long grain white rice)

• 2 Packages of Goya sazone seasoning

• 1 tablespoon Olive Oil

• 1 tablespoon sofrito

Bring 4 cups water to a boil, add rice, sazone, olive oil and sofrito and stir until it boils again. Turn down to simmer, cover and let simmer for 20-25 minutes. Note- do not check on the rice until at least 20 minutes have passed as this will cause the rice to turn out mushy. Rice cooks itself. After the rice is done, fluff with a fork and serve.

Pink Beans Preparation

• 2 cans pink beans

• A Pinch of cilantro

• 1 Garlic clove (chopped)

• 1 package sazone

• 2 tablespoons sofrito

Mix all ingredients together in a medium saucepan and simmer on low for 30-40 minutes. Make sure that you do not have to stir the beans too often; this will cause the beans to burst open. Cooking them on low prevents this from happening. To learn more about the proper ways of cooking and preparing Mexican Spanish style cuisine, you can check some of the helpful tutorials online. This will help you to have more idea on how you can add twist and make it extra ordinary.

How and Why to use CBD oil for your pet?

With the changing trends in society, the trend of keeping a pet has become highly popular, and people are highly attached to their pets. They treat them as their family member and do everything to keep them in good health. There are numerous products in the market used for pets, but CBD is one of the most effective and popular ones. CBD is a chemical compound found in the plant of cannabis and is quite beneficial in treating different health problems in humans as well as pets. CBD oil is one of the most popular CBD products used for pets.

CBD products for pets are highly beneficial if your pet is suffering from specific health issues such as anxiety, arthritis, pain, inflammation, etc. If you are going to give CBD to your pet, then you must gain proper knowledge about it beforehand so that you can use it in the right way and get the most out of it. You can use this link to learn how CBD works and the essential things you need to keep in mind while giving CBD oil to your pets.

Top reasons to use CBD oil for pets

Lowers anxiety

Like humans, pet animals also have some types of anxiety, and it can be triggered by any common reasons. There are different types of anxiety faced by dogs, such as separation anxiety, noise anxiety, etc. Anxiety issues have a great adverse impact on the mental health of the dogs. CBD oil is highly effective in lowering anxiety in humans as well as pets. No matter if you have any sort of anxiety disorder or not, CBD will always be beneficial for you as well as your pet. If your dog is facing any kind of anxiety disorder, then you must use CBD products as it will help a lot in treating the problem and providing your pet with great relief.

Treat cancer

Cancer is one of the most dangerous and deadliest ailments, and it is highly disheartening to see your pet while suffering from it. If your pet has any kind of cancer tumors, then you must use CBD oil as it prevents the cancer cells from growing and helps the killer cells in the immune system to grow as it helps to kill the cancer cells. It blocks the cancer cells and doesn’t allow them to produce energy, which leads to their death. Even if you are giving traditional cancer treatment to your pet, CBD oil can help in that too and can increase the effectiveness of treatment to a great extent. So, if your pet is suffering from cancer, then you need not worry as CBD oil can help you to treat its problem easily and make him healthy.

Effective pain killer

CBD oil is an effective pain killer and is quite helpful in treating pain disorders and lowering the pain in your pet. It is a highly effective treatment for chronic pain as it offers quick relief with minimal side effects. It helps in reducing chronic pain, inflammation, pain and inflammation in the intestines, etc. CBD directly impacts the nervous system of the pets and impact the receptors to lower the sensation of pain in their body.

Tips to give CBD to your dog

Mix it with food

One of the simplest ways to give your dog CBD oil is by mixing it in its food. Most of the pets love food, and if you are unable to feed them CBD oil directly, then you can simply mix it in their food and make them consume it. Pets take seconds to clean their food bowl, so if you want to give them CBD oil, then you can add it to their food in the bowl, and they will take it along with the food. It helps you to ensure that all the CBD oil is consumed by them.

Give them CBD as a treat.

If you want to make your pet get used to CBD, then one of the best ways to do it is by using it as a treat. Whenever you give a treat to your pet for any good thing it does, you can add a few drops of CBD oil to it. No pet says NO to treats, so it is a great way to make them consume CBD oil without any resistance. It will not only make them comfortable with CBD but will also help to increases the bond between you and your pet. CBD treats make them obey you and enhances that relationship between you and your pet. You must add a few drops of CBD oil on the treat and let it absorb the oil properly. Once it has absorbed it all, you can give it to your pet.

To conclude, there are numerous reasons that make CBD oil beneficial for your pet and some tips too that help you to give it to your pet.

Dogs and the Effects of Separation Anxiety

Dogs are very social animals and as you meet your Dog you develop a strong bond. However, sometimes that bond goes beyond a healthy state to the point that the dog cannot be away from you for a moment. Most often there is a psychological reason for this behavior and the majority of the dogs that suffer are a result of past abuse, coming from a shelter, puppy mill, pet store, or had multiple owners. It’s no wonder the dog may feel unworthy of love. It feels like when you leave, you aren’t going to come back.

Your dog may display signs of distress when left alone and over-attached to you when you are home. It is important to realize that a dog is not displaying separation anxiety out of spite or boredom. They are not trying to punish you or retaliate for any reason. Separation anxiety is a real problem facing your dog that needs to be addressed.

The best you can do for your dog is fulfill those moments when you do have to be away with things that will keep your dog busy . . . but not destructive. Purchase special puzzle toys for your dog and only provide them when you will be gone. The goal is for your dog to associate the puzzle toy with your departure. Choose a puzzle toy that you can fill deeply with your dog’s favorite treat such as peanut butter or soft cheese. Place the item in the freezer after it is filled which will make the treat last longer. Your dog will chew on that acceptable puzzle treat toy for hours. Have several of these special toys hidden around the house where your dog will be staying for long term activity until your return.

Doggie daycare or a pet sitter/pet walker may help an overly anxious dog though it can be costly. Some researchers swear that some soft music can calm a dog’s nerves. Take your dog for a walk before leaving the house. Expelling some of your dog’s energy before you depart will leave him/her a little more relaxed when you go.

A very difficult task which may help is to decrease your bond with your dog when you are home so the pain is not so deep when you leave. It is a matter of training your dog to be a little more dependent. Professional training may be required but some of the things you can do are to teach your dog to stay. Place your dog in his/her bed and command the dog to stay while you move further and further away. With each step further when the dog obeys, provide a teat. If your dog does not stay, lead him/her back to the bed and repeat the stay process (with no treat – a treat is only when the stay command is performed). Repeat the exercise often every day and for longer periods – you going further and further away. Don’t forget the treat. This is the real reinforcement.

If you have an anxious dog, trips out of the home should start with short trips. Don’t leave your dog all of a sudden for eight or more hours. Start with an hour or two and build up so your dog knows that you always come back. Treat your dog with goodies and praise when you come home to find a nice clean house. However, do not punish or yell at your dog if not. That only instills further anxiety.

Reports are that it is not a good idea to put an anxious dog in a crate. They could hurt themselves trying to get out. An anxious dog most often comes from an abusive relationship, reviving that abuse while placed in a crate like a forgotten bad dog. In many cases like ours, though, dogs are housebroken with crates and introduced to crates as a form of security for your pooch. Our dogs consider their crates as their “bedrooms” and a safe haven with their own beds, blankets, and a favorite toy. Their crates have never been used as a form of punishment. They are left open when we are home and our dogs go in on their own free will when they want to find solitude.

Is Raw Food Safe For Your Dog?

What did dogs eat prior to the introduction of commercial dog foods about 70 years ago? Instead of Dog Chow out of a bag, it was Real Food, i.e., human food scraps, bones, rodents, small rabbits, and birds, plus whatever they could scrounge out of the trash. And a lot of it was raw.

So why are we now feeding these formerly wild creatures canned and bagged, precooked, chemical-laced grains and contaminated meat byproducts instead of the fresh raw meat and vegetal matter they were designed to digest? The answer is convenience, coupled with convincing propaganda on the part of dog food manufacturers. But the truth is, cooked foods may be making our dogs sick and shortening their lives.

Is it safe to feed your dogs raw meat? Doesn’t it have dangerous parasites? As it turns out, dogs are not susceptible to parasites such as E. coli and salmonella because their digestive juices are more acidic than ours and can detoxify bacteria. The exceptions are pork and rabbit, which harbor particularly potent parasites and should not be fed raw. Another no-no is raw salmon. Serve food tepid, not cold, as they would eat it in the wild.

Bones (from beef and poultry) and chicken and turkey necks and backs are packed with nutrients such as amino acids and protein, fat, essential fatty acids, fiber, enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Chewing and eating them also provides upper body and intestinal exercise. Although some pet nutritionists and veterinarians are against giving bones to dogs because they believe bones damage the teeth, others think they are a necessary adjunct to a dog’s diet. All vets agree that you should never give your dog cooked bones, because they can splinter and become stuck in the throat or digestive tract-particularly chicken bones. But raw bones are safe. There probably doesn’t exist a dog who will refuse a bone. You can also use raw, unpasteurized milk, particularly goat’s milk, several times weekly to supply calcium. Another milk product, yogurt, contains friendly bacteria as well as calcium.

Raw muscle and organ meats (heart, liver, kidney, thymus, spleen, etc.) are also excellent for your dog. They contain amino acids, protein, fat, and more antioxidants, enzymes, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals than cooked meat. Raw egg yolks can be added to the meal a few times a week, and fish twice a week. Fish is low in vitamins E and B1, so don’t feed it to your dogs too often. A deficiency of B1 results in vomiting, weight loss, and even brain damage. Raw meat, fish and eggs contain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which maintain healthy organ systems.

Dogs raised on denatured, commercial, cooked pet foods tend to have inadequate digestive enzymes, which are found in abundance in raw foods. You can add enzymes to their diet to aid digestion in the form of unpasteurized organic apple cider vinegar (which also kills unfriendly bacteria), one to two tablespoons mixed into the meal. Nondairy acidophilus/bifidus and citrus seed extract from the health food store are probiotics: antibacterial organisms that promote a healthy intestine and can be added to food. In addition, alfalfa and kelp, chamomile, garlic, ginger, and parsley combat gram-negative bacteria such as salmonella, if you’re not entirely comfortable with the idea of feeding your dogs raw foods. And if you can afford it, organic or free-range meat and eggs are always better because there are no hormones or antibiotics that can be passed on to your dog.

Dogs require vegetal matter in their diets-preferably raw also-although grains and beans should always be cooked. They need minerals from other foods such as grains, legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables in order to utilize the protein from meat.

Choosing the right food for your dog is really crucial. Hence, as a pet owner, it is your responsibility to know what’s best and what’s not for your dog. See this page for more reliable and helpful information.

A regimen that consists of fresh and organic raw meat, bones, cage-free eggs, and organic vegetables and fruits for dogs is ideal because of the high pollution levels of factory-farmed meat (antibiotics, tranquilizers, synthetic hormones, heavy metals, and pesticides like DDT, dioxin, etc.), and their possible links to cancer, allergies, infections, kidney and liver disease, and behavior problems.

Cannabinoid Oil for Pets- Clearing All Doubts of Pet Owners

Sometimes it is difficult to put into words about how important a particular person is in our life as it cannot be explained satisfactorily why they are what they are to us and this can be seen as the crux that helps connecting two strangers with each other.

However, this bond of attachment is not limited among human beings alone as even animals too fall into the category despite the fact that they cannot communicate in the same speech as humans and have their own language to do so.

Even more interesting is when the bond is between humans and animals in the form of master and pet that takes it to an entirely different level where it becomes a welcome addition to the family in more ways than one.

Health Factor

Whenever a family goes out to shop for pets, they don’t do so with the mindset of having an animal servant in the house but to welcome it as a new member of the family and none better to match dogs in terms of loyalty.

It also becomes the duty of the owner to care for the pet exactly as he does to his children and fortunately, most of them do it in an excellent manner without any partiality or bias.

It is also well known that animals are more prone to ailments than humans whether it normal or life threatening but none of them have to worry as CBD oil is there to take care of such problems.

Now, most of the readers would not be too familiar with the term so to give a brief definition, CBD oil stands for cannabinoid which is taken from the extracts of cannabis/marijuana/hemp and it is this that makes people doubtful about its credibility due to the involvement of drugs.

This is why people are skeptical of using it as they don’t want to compromise on the health of their pets, which becomes an important factor to clear the doubts of such people that their pet’s well being is in safe hands.

You can get more info about CBD oil through numerous articles online but this is just for the people to get more enlightened about this miraculous discovery of ancient times and why it is so significant for not only physical but mental health as well.

Assurance

It is no secret that pet owners are exceptionally fond of their pets but to clear their skepticism, CBD oil has numerous medicinal properties in it that is taken from sources that grow in hilly areas with a moderate climate, which is why they are pure and authentic with 100% results and no side effects.

There are numerous online reviews where people who were grappling with joint pain, anxiety, depression, suicidal tendencies have seen a miraculous transformation but when they see the same results with their pets, they strongly vouch for its use.

This is an excellent way to get to know about CBD oil in its entirety where it has played a huge role in shaping numerous lives be it humans or animals.

Preventative Health Care for Your Dog

These days, dogs are living longer and longer, and people are treating their pets more and more like family members. For this reason, many dogs are treated for chronic health conditions, serious illness, and so forth that would have simply resulted in having your dog put to sleep in years past. Of course, it is possible to give your dog all the wonders of medical science, such as hip surgery, diabetes medications, seizure medications, steroids for skin conditions and so on. However, just as with people, it is wiser and financially more feasible to take preventative measures than to make interventions.

Feed a good quality of food right from the start. Just as with people, good feeding in infancy leads to good health in adulthood. Many serious problems like hip dysplasia can be avoided with proper diet, but it has to start young and be consistent. Many people feed completely homemade dog foods. I don’t know that I recommend this. I think that it is important to have a good brand of staple dry food that is always available to your dog (unless she is a chow hound who will just wolf down as much food as you are willing to put out.) Be sure to buy a high quality of kibble. Don’t buy a bargain brand or you are likely to find that your dog is hungry all the time and that you have a huge cleanup job on your hands. Bargain dog food is often made mostly of fillers like corn meal that go right through your dog’s system without nourishing him.

Be sure your dog gets plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. Dogs need to go out for walks or runs (depending on the dog) at least once a day. Twice is better. Be sure your dog always has plenty of appropriate toys to play with and that you play some kind of interactive game with your dog several times a week. Daily is better. Throwing a ball or Frisbee, playing tag, going for a bike ride, are all good games to play with your dog. Don’t play tug of war as this can lead to problems with dominance issues. It is fine for dogs to play tug of war with each other, but not with people.

Keep your dog clean with regular brushing and a wipe down with a damp cloth once a week or so. I do not subscribe to the notion that dogs need frequent baths. I think this is very hard on their skin and coat. A thorough brushing daily, or at least a couple of times a week, removes dirt from your dog’s fur and coat. You can use a dry shampoo made of 2 parts cornstarch to one part baking soda to eliminate odors. Sprinkle it over the coat, rub it in, let it stand for a couple of minutes, and brush vigorously. Be sure to check your dog’s ears and toenails. Wipe out the ears with a slightly damp cloth as needed. Clip the nails as needed. Understand that, if you keep your dog active, toenail clipping may not be necessary.

The last thing I will mention is the most important. Know your dog. If he is a purebred, read up on the breed and understand the types of behavior and health issues you may face. If he is a mix, try to determine what types of dogs he is comprised of, and do the same. It is preferable to do this before you choose a pet, however, very often our pets choose us, so we have no choice but to do our research after the fact!

Understanding your dog’s breed will help you to know what kinds of ailments you should look out for. For example, large breeds often tend to have hip dysplasia. If you are choosing a puppy, be sure to see it’s parents and find out if there is a family history of hip dysplasia. Even if there is not, be sure to feed your dog a diet rich in Omega 3 Fatty acids and calcium to avoid this problem down the line. You can click to read more. This site will educate you about the proper ways of taking good care of your pet so you can ensure that he or she is always healthy and happy.

Breed also plays a large role in temperament and the types of training that are effective with dogs. You may be an excellent dog trainer for a bulldog type, but this will not help you much in dealing with a Catahoula Leopard Dog. I say this from personal experience. It is important to understand the psychology of your dog to be able to train him most effectively.

By taking good care of your dog and being proactive in his health and training right from the start, you can expect to have a happy, healthy friend and family member to share your life with for a good, long time.

CBD Oil- Perfect for Pets with Ailing Body Parts

There are many things to take care of and nothing more important than health
because everyone has heard of the famous saying ‘health is wealth’ but very few
people seem to follow it.

Now with the entire world under a lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, things
have taken a drastic turn as people are quite seriously following the norms formulated
by the government as the death toll continues to rise at an alarming rate.

Be it normal ailments or life threatening diseases, none of them should be neglected
because you never know when they would take the next level by which time it is too
late to make amends.

Brief Description

When it comes to life threatening ones, it is difficult to dot it down to a few and it is
totally in the hands of doctors or fate on who will survive and who will die but when it
comes to normal ailments, it is totally in your hands on how you take care of your
body.

Thankfully, the current generation is far better in managing things and pretty much
into health and fitness right from a young age but when you have CBD oil you can
consider it as an extra bonus.

CBD oil stands for Cannabinoid Oil, which is taken from extracts of cannabis plants
from hilly terrains alongwith hemp as well because they have medicinal properties in
them that keep the body fit and healthy that may not necessarily destroy ailments,
but does keep their symptoms and reasons from entering the body.

While some people in the initial stages are quite skeptical of using it due to the drug
content, they are ignorant of the fact that certain drugs do have natural herbs in
them and the climate where the plants are grown are cool and pleasant.

It has the perfect weather conditions that makes it stand out and far superior to the
medicines laced with fanged chemicals and artificial chemicals that do more harm
and little good to the body with drastic side effects at the very least.

CBD Oil is perfect for both humans and animals as it has been a good alternative for
certain problems but people are fearful that it would work differently on the latter
and hence wary of giving it to their pets.
Usage through Dosage

Once people start seeing the results for themselves the next question that pops up in
their mind is how much of it should they use CBD oil on their pets so the answer to
that is there isn’t a prescribed dosage for it.

It is still being worked upon by experts who are conducting regular experiments so
that they can be clear on this matter as certain animals have different receptors
compared to others and it would take time for their body to absorb the effects of CBD
oil.

For detailed info, you can click this site called wiselypet.com where you can find
everything that you want to know on this matter as there are different oils and other
CBD products depending on the ailment.

Dangers Associated with New Puppy Care and Housebreaking

My wife came home with Bella two days ago. I did not want Bella. I was adamant that I would not have any responsibility to do with her care, training, or her – period! She is brand new and has the bladder the size of a petit pois pea. My wife takes her out very late at night just prior to bedtime. The second she hears her stir at approximately 4:00 am; she quickly gets up to take her out again. She was diligently doing her duties as quietly as possible to ensure Bella not disturb me. After all, the point was to endear her to me. I would never tell my wife, but she is a cute little thing and tries very hard to please everyone, even me.

Yesterday she got up for the second time, at 5:30 am to take Bella out who woke up when I got up for work. Here is the story I later got of my wife’s day. There was frost on the ground. It took Bella at least 20 minutes to find the proper area to poop. My wife had not thought to put her glasses on. The sun was just peeping over the roof causing her to develop ice blindness. Bella finished her business and my wife picked her up and headed up the stairs. She stubbed her toe on the bottom step, fell UP the stairs, and dropped Bella. Bella yelped and bounced on the cement step. My wife twisted like a pretzel to catch her so that she would not fall off of the edge of the stairs garnering more vet bills than we were already looking at for dropping her on the cement stair. Unfortunately, unlike a little puppy, my wife does not bounce. The damage incurred by my wife during the fall was a stubbed toe, a scraped foot, a twisted and bruised ankle, a bruised and swollen and scraped knee, a bruised hip and ribs, a scraped, bruised, and twisted shoulder, a neck sprain, and a scraped chin and cheek. She then staggered through the door and placed Bella gently onto the floor and watched her closely. Bella limped for three steps and was fine. She placed Bella back into her playpen to assess her own damages and Bella poops – again – on her potty pad in the playpen approximately three seconds after she put her in it. She shrugged off her injuries and headed into the bathroom. With due care and attention, a survey can be taken to find more info about the dangers. An offering of the nutritious and healthy food should be done for the pets. The information should be correct and real for the pets available in the pets available in the home. The results will be beneficial for the person. 

She took a shower, dried off, and instantly had alligator skin. Unfortunately, she was unable to use lotion or deodorant, because she was going for her annual mammogram and bone density scan. She limped out to car with itchy skin, leaving Bella sleeping peacefully in my son’s bed. She arrived at the office and the computers were down due to the inclement weather. She sat in the slick, uncomfortable chair in the waiting room for 45 minutes. She finally got called back and limped into the room, where she had her boobs squished and mangled. Her day was definitely not getting better. She limped into the next room and lay down on what seemed to be a block of cement bed. She had her bone density scan and struggled up to her feet, scratching furiously at her dry skin. I was just getting off of work and agreed to meet her, so that we could go to the “good” Chinese place for a late dinner/early supper. We walked into the normally super friendly, great place, to find the workers in a heated battle with one another, yelling in whatever language it is they speak. We ate quickly and left. I watched my wife struggle into her car and begin her drive home. I was feeling a bit guilty about how harsh I had been about Bella’s care and training. Halfway home she reports that she became terribly sick to her stomach. My stomach was fine. She made it home and rushed to the bathroom. The “good” Chinese place was apparently not so good today. She found Bella sleeping peacefully in her playpen. I thought she looked kind of sweet sleeping there.

I watched as my wife moved her exhausted, bruised, mangled, and battered body to the bed and lay down. She rubbed herself down with the lotion on the bedside table, took off her glasses, melted into the softness of the mattress, and sighed in relief. Bella immediately woke up and started crying to go out. I felt sorry for my wife and decided to do her a favor. Bella wasn’t that bad, after all. I picked up her tiny fluffy wiggling body and made my way out into the back yard with her. It was dusk by then. The sun was glittering through the back trees, blinding me. The ground was covered in frost…

How To Protect Your Dog from Lyme Disease

Lyme disease, transmitted most commonly by the deer tick can cause illness and humans but a smaller animal who may in fact be your best friend is also subject to the disease. With the advent of summer, you may want to start checking Spot as well as your pet for ticks. Lyme disease is an increasing problem in the pet populations, especially in the Northeast. The Companion Animal Hospital has treated and diagnosed over 70 animals with the illness since 2005. With the incidence increasing, it is important to know the signs of the disease as well as how it is transmitted. Properly identifying the disease and protecting your dog from ticks is essential.

A tick must be on a dog for over 48 hours in order for the canine to become infected. The insect must draw blood which is how it obtains its food in order to infect another animal or person.. A bacterium carried by the insect causes the disease. Dogs may develop a limp, lose interest in their food, swelling of the lymph nodes or can cause kidneys to fail in some cases. While antibiotics help treat the disease and ease some of the symptoms, they do not cure it. If you find ticks on your dog, or suspect your dog may have been exposed to the blood sucking insect, you should have him or her undergo regular veterinary screenings.

Most animals are admitted showing signs of painful limping. The limp may start off as moderate but can progress to the point where the dog is unable to walk completely, requiring Fido to be carried into the vet’s office. Just as the disease does in humans, lime disease often imitates the symptoms of another disorder and can easily be misdiagnosed. Even after treatment, patients may experience chronic pain in the joins or cardiac problems. Whether or not the disease can be contracted more than once is unclear as it may just be a relapse of an earlier infection.

Should Spot gain a tick, use a pair of tweezers to carefully remove it and grab the tick as close to the skin as possible. Make sure to pull the insect directly away from the canine. Putting your dog through a monthly tick control regiment is a good idea. Many such products are available such as Frontline, which is applied month. It is important if you suspect your dog may be showing signs or have been exposed to one of the three ticks that carries the disease to have him or her screened as soon as possible. Going here, this website will help you learn more about some helpful tips on how you should protect your dog from Lyrne disease. As a responsible owner, you should know what’s best for your dog and that includes their health and safety.

How to Potty Train Your Puppy

When becoming a proud owner of a dog you need to take into consideration that a dog is nowhere near a cat and they cannot just go in a litter box they have to be taken outside otherwise you might have a messy situation in your home. When it comes to puppies they are a lot like teaching a young child to use the potty, you have to be consistent on taking them to the potty every 30 minutes to make sure that they know that the potty is were they need to go every time they have to go number one or number two, the same goes for dogs as well. Below are some tips to help you learn what to do as soon as your bring your puppy is brought home.

Before we begin, let it be known that potty training is one of the most arduous tasks in existence and it is a herculean achievement to get it done by a child so the less said about pups the better but there is an important link between master and pet where they get to form a bond so let’s get into it.

First Steps To Take Potty Training A Puppy

When coming home from picking up your brand new puppy, the first thing that you should do is take them to a spot that you want them to do their business outside. Keep in mind this is going to be the spot that they use to go to the bathroom every time so it is not a good idea to put them right in front of your door because that will only cause to have to watch your step going outside. I would suggest that you either look into putting them towards the side of the house or towards the back so that you do not have to watch every step you take. Once they do their business in that spot, then you have to make sure that as the owner that you take them to this specific spot every time. If you do not then you give them the impression that it is ok for them to go were ever they want to.

How Often You Should Take Your Puppy Outside

When it comes to getting your puppy outside to go potty it up to you to watch for specific signals that tell you that they need to go. Watch your puppy and make sure they are not circling one spot or that they are not sniffing the ground because chances are that is the time that they need to go outside. Remember also this is a puppy and so you might get lucky and they will scratch at the door when they have to go, but chances are they have not developed the association with outside and potty so they may not do this. It is better to look at the other two signals, if you catch your puppy squatting then chances are you are too late to get them to go outside, but if you catch them sniffing or circling then pick your puppy up and take them straight out to their designated spot. Puppies have small weaker bladders and so it is best to take them outside every 30 minutes because this will limit the accidents that occur in the house.

Potty training a puppy may not seem easy because it is all about consistent and having the time until they reach about a year old to take them outside every 30 minutes, but in the end you will be happy that you got a head start on it while it is still a puppy.

Having a cat in Your Home

In response to an article titled 5 Things I Wish I Would Have Known Before I Got a cat:

I love animals, don’t get me wrong. However, when my husband stole his aunt’s cat last Thanksgiving and brought her into our home, I was a bit upset. We already have a cat, and adding a cat didn’t seem like a good idea to me.

I don’t know what got me to have a cat as a pet instead of a dog because there is no comparison between them regarding which of them is the best pet but I am aware that cats are a constant source of annoyance in the house and known to create ruckus time and again but I decided to keep it despite my husband’s aversion to cats. 

I’ve had stray cats in the past that I at least kept outside all the time. Living in the country, they usually ended up with fleas, worms, and were a bit feisty at times. This new cat, named Angel, only knew life as an indoor cat. I could just see buying flea medications for her and our cat and the house, plus carpet cleaner for any “accidental” spots she’d leave. (Although, amazingly, she has never gotten fleas or ticks!) She can be a real pain in the butt sometimes, but other times she’s sweet and a little princess.

It took Angel a few days to get acquainted with the house and our cat, but after that, she took over. My husband is a cat person, and has had a few in his previous homes. So I let him take responsibility of her and decide what to buy her. First thing we did was go out and buy her a litter box and top-of-the-line litter. Then we picked out a bag of dry cat food – we went with Whiskas, which she still likes today.

Like I said, Angel can be a pain in the butt. When she’s out of food or water she follows me around, meowing and even biting me to get my attention. In the middle of the night she comes upstairs and jumps into bed with me, climbing all over my body, her paws landing on my neck. Sometimes she even sleeps on my long hair laying across the pillow. We have not had to de-claw her yet, but I believe we are going to have to get it done asap. In our previous home, we had a leather footstool and wood-edged furniture. Well, Angel liked to lean up against them and flex her claws in them, leaving little holes and long scratches. Now, with our brand new furniture (no wood on it what-so-ever) she continues to stretch her front legs up onto it, and her claws sink right into the upholstery. You can hear pops as her claws enter and exit the fabric. Right now I can’t see any holes, but in time, I’m sure I will.

She tries to sneak outside sometimes when I let our cat out. I have learned my lesson with letting her go out in the grass! She heads straight for the green grass and eats it. Then, a few minutes or hours later, back in the house, she hacks it up…a yellow spot with the undigested grass on our WHITE carpet.

Angel also bites at our cat’s legs for no reason and likes to play, with anything! I can be hanging streamers for a birthday party and the roll will fall onto the floor. What does she do? Chases it and bats it around with her paws. I start wrapping presents, and where is Angel? She’s walking around on top of the unrolled wrapping paper and finds a nice spot in the middle of it to lay down. She also likes to climb into boxes and lay inside empty shopping bags. I can definitely relate to Dawn’s statement of cats being weird!

On the other hand, Angel can be a real sweetheart. She is the most verbal cat either of us has been around. Angel meows and makes adorable little noises under her breath a lot. She’s quiet most of the time, sleeping behind the couch, between the sliding glass patio doors and the curtain, and on the couch. She even makes her way upstairs sometimes to sleep under the warm covers of our bed. We have pictures of her sleeping all curled up, with her head leaning off the bed or couch, and on her back with her paws sticking up in the air like she’s dead or something.

As I’m writing right now she’s making her way over to me to jump up into my lap. She sits and bumps her head and nose into my chin. I can hear her gently purring. Angel is definitely a lap animal. If she sees you sitting, she will come over and get into your lap. It’s so warming and calming to rub her and have her gently stretching her paws on my arm.

Having a cat didn’t sit well with me to begin with. But now, I have to say having a cat can be kind of cool. You have an animal that sleeps most of the time, doesn’t require much as far as entertainment like cats, as is warm and soft in your lap. I have to admit, I have gotten sort of attached to our little princess Angel! Unlike awhile back, I wouldn’t even consider giving her up now! (Even though right this second she is biting at my fingers as I try to type!)

Lose Weight Without Counting Calories

The New Year brings new promises that we make to ourselves to improve our lives in many ways. One of those promises is to eat less and lose weight. And each year we fail ourselves with not following those diet plans we vow to do and giving up on them. Do not diet. Yes you read me right. Do not diet. Change your eating habits. Don’t count those calories. Most of us get bored with keeping up with calories, fat grams, and special diets that you have to plan a menu to follow every week.

Use these tips to help you eat less and get exercise. I have struggled with weight loss for many years and tried many diets just to end up failing. I finally gave up and decided to just change my habits. The holidays don’t help when you want to lose weight so enjoy your holiday and the family meals. If you feel that you are missing out because you have to be strictly on your diet then this is going to lead to depression and this in turn causes you to over eat. I have problems with arthritis in my feet so finding exercise that doesn’t have me in pain and my feet swelling is very hard to do. Complete exercise and supplements should be provided to the person to get reduction in the weight. Some tips and tricks can be followed through the person for the advantage. Along with the exercises, the resurge review can be checked for the consumption of the weight loss pills. No harm like swelling of the body parts will be there. 

You can lower your calorie intake by using good judgment instead of counting each calorie. I cut way back on milk but I still like to have it in my cereal for breakfast. My doctor suggested skim milk. I hate skim milk. What I do is I buy 2 percent or 1 percent milk and then I water it down. Not too much but enough to where it is still milk. I save money this way too.

Do not eat donuts because they are pure sugar. Cut out sweets but still give yourself a treat every now and then. If you don’t buy it then you have less chance in eating it or craving it. The holidays sure have got me on this one. If someone brings them in the house I am sure to want them.

Don’t buy diet meals. Have you looked at the sodium content on these meals? Instead cut portions on what you eat. Use “No Salt”; a salt substitute. I can’t tell any difference in it and real salt. If you don’t buy salt you will cut out sodium in your diet a great deal. Eat your largest meal early in the day and the lighter meal at the evening meal. My doctor suggested eating several mini meals to ward off hunger.

Use these basic tips for healthier eating. Choose foods that are brown. Choose meat that is white. Instead of white rice, pasta, bread, potatoes, choose brown rice, wheat pasta, multigrain wheat bread, and sweet potatoes. These will also help lower cholesterol. When choosing meat instead of brown meats choose chicken, turkey, fish. Bake or grill your meat instead of frying. The same goes for your vegetables. Don’t cook in heavy oils or fats. Trim fat off meat but leave enough for flavoring.

Use sugar substitutes instead of sugar. Splenda is very similar to sugar. You may be surprised at how much you don’t really miss using sugar very much. Juices are high in sugar and corn so stick to limiting these.

Make a rule when dining out to only order water with your meals and do the same at home. Be aware also of the drinks that you are consuming. Most people don’t think that fluids can add the pounds but they can if you are drinking high calorie ones like whole milk, chocolate milk, hot chocolate, egg nog. Limit these to special occasions.

Choose ways of getting exercise that is fun. Swimming is a lot of fun and can burn off a lot of calories. Try parking at the far end of parking lots so you are getting more exercise and go window shopping just for fun. Go to the mall and just walk to sightsee all the pretty decorations this Christmas. Take the kids to the park on pretty days and take the dog for a walk and tour the parks. If you are young enough go sled riding with kids in the snow this winter. Build a snowman. Making a fun day doesn’t seem so much like exercise.

What is the Future for SEO Copywriting?

SEO is an industry like no other. The acronym alone polarises opinion. Some see it is as an essential process in the marketing of a successful Web site. Others think of it as an unnecessary money pit, with charlatans cluttering the Internet with endless, valueless content.

Whatever the rights and wrongs of SEO as a technique or profession, the effects are clear. A tightening of search engine algorithms has rendered the worst practices worthless. This has encouraged a more productive and positive system of best practices to replace the antiquated black hat tactics. One of the major benefactors of this development is the Copywriter.

As you will no doubt already be aware, content plays a huge part in the optimization process. You just can’t have a successful, high ranking website without copy at some stage in your process.

The Importance of Content in SEO

Developing content today is very much the job of a copywriter. Due to the proliferation and concentration of copy available online, you need to have something that gives you that cutting edge. Writers hone their talents by continuously producing content in their chosen field. A journalist writes for their newspaper or magazine, developing an understanding of the audience and creating a voice to match expectations. The same is true of SEO Copywriters.

In the past, an SEO copywriter would have had to create content that was laden with keywords. Producing a readable copy with a keyword density of 10% is certainly no easy task. Thanks to the advancement of search engines and the introduction of PageRank and other link-related ranking factors, this is firmly in the past.

Today the objective of copy is less about populating text with keywords. Instead, it is all about producing content that will encourage conversions. Keywords are far from extinct, they are still needed to contextualize a page for search engine crawlers, but their impact has been significantly diminished.

So with this in mind, can anybody really call themselves an SEO copywriter?

There are still plenty of businesses, for instance, Dynamics Digital SEO Agency and freelancers offering SEO copywriting services. But the term itself is outdated. Copywriting is about producing content that will help to benefit SEO; but the words used are largely natural, giving context to a page and providing ample information to any visitor.

As a part of search engine optimization, the SEO prefix is somewhat justified. But copywriting as a practice is moving away from any direct involvement. Instead, a copywriter’s role is to create a quality copy. Whether that is rich with keywords is almost incidental. Web users have become wise to sites that have an inflated search engine ranking and have little or nothing to offer on arrival. Therefore site owners have to be able to deliver on their promise.

Putting Visitors and Quality Ahead of SEO

This is where the copywriter, SEO or otherwise, comes to the fore. The ability to write compelling copy that engages an audience and encourages further investigation is paramount. Keeping one eye on keywords and synonyms, the modern online writer can’t ignore these aspects, but it isn’t a priority.

Websites though are dependent on content. Just as links are vital in providing incoming traffic streams and added strength, it is the copy that anchors it. Off-site optimization, such as guest blogging, article, and hub writing, helps to generate interest. It also offers an opportunity for a site to build external satellites, which are an extension of their core pages.

The more satellites you have, the more links you can generate, and the better your chances of encouraging more site traffic and strength. In the future, as the Internet becomes ever more populated with content, only the best will get the attention they deserve. Your copy will have to work hard to attract and maintain a visitor’s interest, which means it has to meet near impeccable standards.

This is the future of the SEO copywriter. Whilst deeply involved in the optimization process, it won’t be their main focus. Quality of work and the ability to engage visitors will be far more essential factors. They will become increasingly important to Web sites and SEOs, but not in the same way as they may have been in the past.

  • Medical methods-

In various conditions, it is mandatory to know whether the patient is using illegal drugs or not. For this, they conduct the drug test by using their own kits in their clinic or hospital.

Loosing Weight and Food Addictions

If you are trying to lose weight because you are obese, you are not alone in America. Fifty one percent of America’s residents are trying to lose weight at any given time. That is many people looking at their diets or levels of activity at any given time period. So please know you are in good company when it comes to your dilemma. It is comforting to know you are not alone.

Those of us who have extra weight on our bodies do not want to get out and exercise with a bunch of skinny people. I know when I weighed almost 300 pounds I did not want to do that. The trick I found was cutting calories from my diet and this in turn helped me lose weight.

Where can a person begin to look for ways of cutting calories from their diets? It is easy to see where the trouble spots lie sometimes. Once we find some kind of food we enjoy we tend to overeat on it, this send a signal to our brains that we need the food. Our body craves that food much as if an addict craves their drug of choice. Sometimes our food addictions get us into trouble with our diets.

If someone goes to the donut shop nightly for just a few donuts, try going every other night or two, perhaps you could just get one donut instead of two nightly. A donut should be a reward for you, not a daily requirement. When a person will follow the guidelines, then the intake of the resurge pills should be convenient for the person. A diet will be maintained through the person to get effective results in reduction of the weight. The enjoying of the diet should be done through the person to avail the advantages. 

Instead of having a six-pack of Pepsi, drink four or five a day. I am addicted to the caffeine in Pepsi; there is always a can or bottle beside me. The trick is just to cut back at first a little bit, and when you are at the point where it is tolerable for your addiction, cut it back once more. I do not recommend anyone to quit drinking Pepsi or anything caffeine cold turnkey, the withdraw headaches are awful but that is another article.

I am sure if you look into your daily, eating habits with an open mind you will see where you can cut down a bit and that is the right thing to do. Do not make drastic changes within your diet, because that will only make you want to quit the diet and resign your self to being overweight.

You will see a difference juts after a week or so of cutting back on foods. Your energy level will increase gradually even without the excess sugar. Soon you will feel like walking and doing more exercise, and with that comes a whole sense of wellbeing. Once you are happy in one areas of your life it just kind of spreads out to the other areas. That happiness will motivate you into carrying on and losing even more weight.

If you want to maintain the weight loss, it will be easy by watching your diet and changing just a few habits.

There are Rats in the Kitchen…..And I Love It

I am here to talk about the computer-animated picture “Ratatouille.” I don’t know if it is just the mood I was in when I watched it, but I was completely taken by surprise in its brilliance. I know I was one of the few people who had never seen it (but now I have). Everyone was telling me how “cute” it was, so I went into it expecting just an average everyday computer-animated movie, but what I got was a really good movie experience. Not expecting anything out of a movie can make it even better when it turns out to be very good in the end. I don’t think any artist could not like this movie; not just because it is a technical dream, but because it is about an artist (yes, I know he’s a rat), that is just trying to express his creativity through what makes him feel good (cooking). Plus, it will make everyone laugh, children, and adults alike. Start a Free Trial to watch popular Movies on tinyzone and watch Ratatouille with your kids and enjoy your movie night. 

There are two things that have to be mentioned. First, is the sound. Of course, in a computer-animated picture we know that sound is a very important element. It makes the characters become alive and more grounded in the real world, so we the audience can accept the story more as truth. That way we become emotionally involved. Well, the movie “Ratatouille” is all told from the perspective of a rat named Remy. Now we all know that rats are small so the sound would have to be huge and it was. You can really hear it in the scene where Remy is drowning down the gutter. Even I got a little claustrophobic in that scene, and I’m not claustrophobic. Another element that needs to be noted is the editing. It can take most of the credit for the comedic timing. That abrupt editing made everything hilarious. For instance, in the scene where Linguine, in an accident, drops Remy in the lake, it cuts to Linguine sopping wet and still talking to Remy in the same positions they were in before he dropped him in. I guess you have to see it to appreciate it.

My favorite part of this movie was the characters. The best character out of all of them was Linguine. He is the one that most came alive for me. The character study of this character was well done. He was what made everything so absolutely hilarious. He was a great character who is just trying to find his way in the world (which is what makes his character so funny, to begin with). Remy was very good, although he was more of the “play it straight” character (except for one of the funniest scenes in the movie where he is flying out of the window with a cookbook on his head). Then there is the food character (voiced by Peter O’ Toole), who has a small but important part as the hard-crusted food critic. He has one of the most touching scenes in which he takes a bite of the ratatouille and is taken back to when he was a little boy. It is a pivotal moment in the movie.

There are two very important themes in this movie. The first one is prejudice. Just because Remy is a rat he is seen as both gross and useless, something to kill and get rid of. Linguine is seen as useless and clumsy and not worth anyone’s time. The point is that just because someone looks like a rat, it does not mean he is going to be one. It comes out in the end that they are all worth something in different ways. It is one of the greatest things in life when you don’t take something at face value and it turns out to be one of the most amazing things you have ever done.

The theme I most tapped into (being an actress), is that you should always pursue your dreams no matter what. Do what makes you feel good. If you do that then all your family and friends, who love you unconditionally, will always come around in the end. There is this insanity that your art gives you. You get in this hypnotic state where you feel like you have to express it or you are going to explode. All you can think about is creating. It is beautiful and crazy at the same time. I would say it closely resembles falling in love. You love your creative side blindly. The passion will take you places you have never been to before. In the end, you must satisfy with the help of those that love you in the truest sense.

Remy put it right when he said, “Not everyone can be an artist, but an artist can be anyone.”

Even a rat.

Great Coffee Gifts for the Holiday Season

I love coffee and love the holiday season gift giving. So one of my favorite things to give is coffee gift packs that I make myself.

I think for that person that maybe a teacher, co-worker or neighbor there is always that sense of what to give them that will be not too much but yet show you care. Well coffee gift packs have always been a good choice in my family. Here are some examples that I hope you like:

  1. Get a basket or even a desirable tin of some sort. I usually get the basket and fill it with some paper stuffing for a bed for the gifts to sit on. (Note: you can even use single wrapped pieces of candy, like peppermints because a peppermint added to coffee in your cup makes for an unusual taste combination).

  1. Get a big mug with a saying on it or two fancy coffee cups that match and dress them up with candy or small trial sizes of flavored coffees. (Note: you can even use the trial size coffee flavorings or single chocolates but use the one without nuts in them since one little piece of chocolate also goes good in a cup of coffee).
  1. Add some freshly ground coffee and buy the good unique kinds, in other words don’t get the kinds that most people buy for themselves. Add a bottle of coffee flavoring and if you can find them the chocolate dipped stirring spoons. (I know some of the coffee shops sell them and specialty stores).
  1. I dress the basket up with cellophane/ bows and make some candy canes. It all adds up to the perfect gift for the person that you didn’t know what to buy for).
  1. However if you are giving the gift to say an older family member or friend, you can dress the gift up even more. Add a coffee table book, one about coffee is even better.
  1. Add more cups or a cup tree, but if you do get the tree remember to buy enough cups to fill it. I will also sometimes add a serving tray or some kind of coffee knick knack like a creamer.
  1. I like the bigger baskets because you can even incorporate hot tea items for a change or the soothing kind so they can wind down after a hard day. (Note: another additive might be hot chocolate mixes)
  1. Coffee things can be found anywhere, most dollar type stores have cups that say all kinds of sayings. Coffee is cheap enough and the candy is easy stuffer. Not to mention most coffee lovers are eager to receive them since if they truly are coffee drinkers they can never have enough and most enjoy the surprises that are packed in the baskets that they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves.

You will be a winner for sure. I know I wish more people would give me a coffee basket cause I am getting tired of sweaters I never wear. Have a good Christmas holiday season and don’t be afraid of gift giving coffee baskets they make everyone happy, trust me!

Electronic Cigarette or E-cigarettes

There are millions of people hooked to smoking and technology has found answer for those people hooked to the stick. The Electronic Cigarette which is often called the personal vaporizer is an innovative creation that uses a mixture of micro electronic technologies using nicotine cartridges to give a dosage of nicotine when inhaled. What you get is a battery, a mouthpiece and a vaporizer housed using a microchip. With this great technology – microelectronic atomization which vaporizes the nicotine that is in the cartridge to a vapor for so that you can inhale it just like a cigarette. The consumers should have complete information about e cig liquid while drinking. It should be considered that no harm is done to the health of the person with the consumption of the liquid. The liquid will be vaporized in less and taste will be excellent for the consumers. Complete guide will be provided to the person so that benefits will be made available to the interested person. 

The electronic cigarettes have the same texture or feel as a conventional cigarette, but it comes with having to light a match, the smoke and the fallout ash. Can this be the perfect way to enjoy the nicotine without having to worry about finding a light.

A lot of smokers feel that smoking has made them somewhat of an outcast, because of people who do not smoke looking down on them simply because they smoke. Since they smoke they are only allowed to eat at the bar at some restaurants or they are completely denied entry in to some places. Smokers are sick of having to step outside in the cold just to light up a cigarette. These situations are very common in places that have obligatory smoking bans.

Electronic Cigarettes with be appreciated by non-smokers over the classic or traditional cigarette just as much as the smokers already do. The electronic cigarette is in not flammable, and does not contain any tobacco, and does not emit any smoke like the classic or traditional cigarettes do. The non smoking crowd can now walk by the smoker without having to hold their breaths.

If you are a non smoker you would not realize that the average price of a pack of cigarettes in the United States is about 5.50 a pack. If you smoke a pack of cigarettes everyday like most smokers it would cost you about $165

dollars in one month. Over a year, that is just under $2000 dollars. Just imagine what you could buy with that kind of money if you were not spending it on a one-time smokes!

Do the new electronic cigarette systems allow you to keep your hard earned money. It is a lot cheaper to use the same cigarette over and over again. This saves you from buying cigarettes over and over again and frequent trips to convenience stores. Instead of smoking another cigarette you just recharge your electronic cigarette wit a battery type charger. They even have a USB cable to charge your device making it very convenient.

One of the great things of not having real cigarettes is no dirty ash trays to clean; no reason to blast the air with spray deodorizers. and you don’t have to worry about throwing away your cigarette butts. When you visit your friends or family you will not have to worry about them sending you outside to smoke anymore and that awful lingering order that used to go everywhere with you will be gone. You can now get great Electronic cigarettes and put some fun into smoking again.

Reasons A Couple Would Lie To An Adoption Agency

It is easy for you to understand why adopting a child would be such a big event in a couple’s life.

For whatever reason this couple has decided to adopt-whether one or another is infertile, or whether they both are concerned about the problem of overpopulation-their basic concerns about going to an adoption agency can be magnified by a lack of knowledge over what the adoption process entails.

All the couple might actually know in the beginning stages of trying to adopt a child is that they feel a sincere emotional involvement regarding their own relationship. Further, it seems most likely that this involvement in their relationship is the primary reason why the couple would feel encouraged to adopt a child in the first place.

They want to extend the love they feel for each other to a child, a new addition to the home which would make their relationship even more complete.

As a turning point in the logic you have encountered in this so far, however, it is perhaps this very eagerness to extend their love to a child which might actually be detrimental to the adoption process.

As has already been suggested, the beginning stages of the adoption process must adhere to qualifications which might conceivably be beyond the couple’s understanding. At this point, they are caught up in the spirit of adoption, and it is this spirit which might lead to rather hasty and unfortunate actions.

They want to adopt the child so badly that they are even willing to conceal information about themselves which they assume might disqualify them. It is so funny that some couples do some trendy challenges online where they use lie detector test from https://liedetectortest.uk. Someone would ask a question and if they are lying, they will have to do the dare or drink a shot.

Reasons Why a Couple Would Lie to an Adoption Agency: Being Disabled

According to facts presented in the website http:www.adopting.org, the idea that a person has a disability is not an automatic indicator that they can’t take care of a child. The agency would only want to determine if the disability is limiting enough that the child’s needs would be overlooked.

Can you see a situation where a potential parent who has been shunned by employers and others for most of his or her life would lie about this disability to an agency in the eagerness to adopt?

Reasons Why a Couple Would Lie to an Adoption Agency: Not Owning a Home

Naturally, the adoption agency wants the child to be adopted by a couple who can provide adequate food, shelter, and clothing.

But for the couple to lie about their financial situation-indicating they are wealthy when they are not-would be considered a hasty action. Again, the couple might only be trying to make a good impression, but to lie to the adoption agency would be detrimental in the long run.

Reasons Why a Couple Would Lie to an Adoption Agency: Not Really Being a Couple

Since a single man has grown up thinking that the perfect family has a mother, father, and child, for example, he might lie to an adoption agency about even being married. He might invent a wife, one who is always mysteriously ill.

Again, according material presented in Adoption. Org, for example, “Adoptive parents may be married or single, childless or already parenting other children.”

Taking into account these reasons why a couple would lie to an adoption agency, then, you can see the importance for couples to find out the facts of the adoption process before they even begin.

Adopting a child is indeed a big event in the life of a couple, but when the spirit of the moment leads to the hasty action of concealing the truth from the adoption agency, the child will be the one to suffer the most.

Heavy on My Mind: Battle with Life Long Weight Issues

I have spent my entire life battling weight and food issues. When I turned six years old, my weight began creeping upwards. By the time I was 10 years old, I weighed 150 pounds. I began dieting at the age of 12 and my weight has been a yo-yo effect ever since.

I come from a long line of emotional eaters. My mother always felt that food equated love. To this day, my mother still tends to try and overfeed her grown children and her grandchildren. I have many times had to keep myself in check from heading down that same path with my son.

Growing up it was really an emotional roller coaster with food. Our house was a junk food haven, yet my mother would yell at us kids for eating it. In the next breath, she would be rewarding us with the same food. By the time I was 12 years old, I was close to 180 pounds and I started to develop an eating disorder. I wanted to be like the other girls in my school and I wanted to be able to wear the same cute outfits that they did. I was only eating a few tablespoons of food a day. I was throwing away my lunches at school and I thought I had everyone fooled – and I did for a while. I had lost about 30 pounds before my family and everyone else caught on to what I was doing. My parents actually held me down and force fed me on one occasion. Then they called the school and I had to eat with the nurse every day. Eventually, I gained all of the weight back and then some. Experts suggest that the consumption of the resurge supplement will be effective on the health of the mind. The functioning of the brain cells will be excellent when perfect dose of the supplements will be taken. A healthy diet can be maintained through the person with the intake of the medicine. 

By the age of 19, I was up to 213 pounds. I was engaged to my first husband and I was obsessed with being a thin bride. Over the next year, I lost 80 pounds and my dreams of walking down the aisle thin were realized. The major weight loss became an insecure issue for my new husband though and eventually was one of the reasons for our divorce. Even though I was still the same person on the inside as before, men were paying more attention to me and no matter how often I reassured my now ex-husband that he was the only man for me, he couldn’t and wouldn’t accept that.

For 10 years, I kept my weight in check, though it was always a struggle. About six months before my current husband and I got married, I quit smoking. At my second wedding I was still thin but I was about 15 pounds heavier. After my husband and I married my weight slowly began creeping back up. When I found out I was pregnant with our son, I weighed in at 180 pounds. I ate very healthy while I was pregnant but regardless, I still gained over 40 pounds. At my last check up before the birth of our son, I toppled the scales at a hefty 224 pounds.

After the birth of our son, I quickly shed about 25 pounds and was down to 200 pounds at my six week check up. But shortly after, I knew something was very wrong with me physically. I have suffered with chronic health issues since the age of 21 and the pregnancy, which was unplanned, took a huge toll on my already weak body.

My weight began going back up, but rather quickly this time. In only a few short months, I was up to over 230 pounds. After many trips to different doctors and specialists, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. After a few months of treatment, I started feeling much better and my weight stabilized.

I then joined L.A. Weight loss and began losing weight because no matter how hard I tried on my own, I just could not get the weight to come off. But after almost six months in the program, I have only lost 20 pounds. It has been very discouraging for me because I see so many others losing weight easily from this program but I’m not. The years of yo-yo dieting and all of the health issues is making my weight loss journey more difficult.

I love food and always will. I am working on learning how to deal with my food issues and emotional triggers that have led to my constant weight battle. My goal is to break the cycle with me and to not pass on my food issues to my son.

Hummingbird Feeder- Best Ones to Lookout For

We have always been hearing about how nature is the ultimate route towards salvation and there is no better place on earth than in the lap of Mother Nature where you can find everything.

It is impossible to describe the importance of nature in our lives as they have contributed a lot in giving mankind more than it can ever ask for right from the times of yore like trees that provide us with oxygen to breathe in order to survive.

Everyone aspires to move towards the countryside but the busy work schedule in the hustle bustle of city life prevents them from doing so, which is why they have no choice but they do make it a point to shift base after retirement.

Birds of a Feather

There are numerous birds in existence like sparrow, crow, eagle, raven, parrot, etc. to name a few and they all have their invaluable places when the topic is about nature.

However, we are going to discuss about an important but unique one that does not stir the imagination as much as the above mentioned ones do and hence, it becomes necessary to gain more knowledge about them.

The hummingbird is one that everyone must have heard of but if anyone is asked to come forward and give a 2 minute lecture about it, most of the people would be tongue tied.

It is because they have heard very little about it in their school and the most distinct trait about the hummingbird is that it can fly backwards and they are the smallest birds in existence in terms of size.

Nobody realizes that there is much more to the hummingbird than that as they have many characteristics that can give even the largest and mightiest ones an inferiority complex.

First of all, hummingbird come from the Trochilidae family and they belong to both North and South America where you can find many of the species in abundance all around in United States, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Venezuela and other countries as they are ubiquitous in such places.

There are nearly 400 known species of hummingbirds that are in existence that you can research extensively about online as it is not possible to cover them up in a single article and so we won’t venture into this territory. It is suffice to say that birds of a feather flock together.

Feed the Needy

When there is a discussion about hummingbird, it is impossible that hummingbird feeder is not included in the discussion as it is a core basis for the birds to exist that holds true for all bird species.

A Hummingbird feeder is a device that is usually in the form of a tray or vessel where the bird seeds are stored so that they can enjoy a good meal but most people are not aware of this fact.

They can identify a bird feeder by sight but not by name because only those that have bird pets are aware that these feeders are used to feed them each day as they are needy of it.

Humming birds are mostly fond of nectar but they also need basic food and drink to survive and these feeders are perfect to store enough in terms of quantity that the birds can utilize for a longer period of time.

Best Ways to Fill Up

Some of the best hummingbird feeders can be found online if you know where to look and even now, in 2020, there have been such unique models that most bird lovers must be aware of so let’s not get into that.

Even the best hummingbird feeder needs to be handled by people that have sound knowledge of how to use it and so here are certain ways to fill up a feeder:

  1. Keep the outside chamber neat and clean by unscrewing the lid on the top by and change the liquid in an already used feeder as the chamber has opened up
  2. Always use warm water to rinse the feeder clean before filling it up with nectar as it would help to remove germs
  3. It is entirely your choice whether you want to make the nectar yourself or purchase it from the market but fill it up with a nice and clean funnel otherwise the dirty contents would be added in as well

Weight Loss: Are Pills, Powders and Potions the Answer?

In this advanced day and age, there are many medical advances in dieting and everyone and their uncle have jumped on the weight loss bandwagon. Everyone has a pill that will make you burn fat, rev up your weight loss hormones, let you sleep and wake up with a weight loss with no action on your part except to take the pill as directed. Do you really think that these will work? If you do you have definitely been duped and bought a weight loss product you will be unhappy with.

The Fine Print

Have you ever read any of the bottles that go past the directions? How about the information paper that usually comes with the bottle? If you are like most who think they are going to lose weight by taking a pill, you won’t read past the directions to take them. If you take the time to read the fine print a majority of weight loss products have a disclaimer on them. This usually says something about the examples on the ads is extreme cases and no two people will have the same weight loss results. The next line is usually to achieve optimal results a low calorie diet and exercise will enhance your experience.

An important point that most people overlook is that no matter how hard you exercise, bet it for gaining muscles or losing weight, it is of no use until you don’t follow a proper diet alongwith with protein supplements like leptitox, which is an important ingredient to increase your metabolism for absorption.

Returnable Guarantee: If You Are Not Satisfied…

So, you have come this far with your weight loss product and are looking for that returnable guarantee. If you are lucky you have kept the bottle, receipt, and your original packaging because most of the return policy has to be followed exactly to get your money back if you have dealt with a mail order. It is easier if you went to a store and purchased your weight loss product, then all that is needed is the UN used portion in the original bottle and the receipt. The stores are very good at refunding, but sometimes the mail orders are harder. You send in your return and the reason and if you are lucky you will get your refund in about eight weeks. That is, if it isn’t lost in the mail.

To Buy or Not to Buy a Weight Loss Product

Some people will become like junkies with these pills and go from one to another trying to get their “instant weight loss” as a majority of the weight loss pills say on the ads. People are shown with their testimonies of fantastic losses and before and after pictures. And in small print at the bottom of the screen is that disclaimer: “Weight loss not typical for the product” but it goes by so fast you really don’t see it long enough to sink in. So, you see the pictures and that is all. You are off to the local store that carries this weight loss miracle. Once you have gone through a several refunds because your results aren’t what you saw on television, you are hooked in the refund game and trying these weight loss products! Finally you do see a good drop in weight, but it isn’t the pills; it is all the exercise of going to the stores and eating less because you spend your money on the weight loss products. The moral of this story is as always: Less calories and exercise equal weight loss.

High Definition Videos- Downloading for Entertainment Value

The current situation is pretty tense as the corona virus pandemic is in its peak form and already claimed millions of lives until now with no signs of respite whatsoever as the virus is as deadly as it gets.

All countries have issued a nationwide lockdown for the safety of the citizens and as such, everyone is confined to their homes for the past few months and can only move out to buy the essentials required to run the house.

On a lighter note, many have also revisited their childhood memories by playing videos games and watching movies on Netflix and Amazon Prime but many of them have complained the quality of videos is abysmal so we are going to talk about an important application that might put their problems to rest.

Twitch

How many have you heard of an application called Twitch? While it might not immediately ring a bell to some, others who are regularly watching movies on OTT platforms are very much familiar with the term.

Twitch is a video streaming device that is operated by a site called Twitch hyperactive, which in turn is a subsidiary of Amazon and has been a relatively popular medium among users.

It isn’t as popular as Torrent or Route but still it has a decent number of subscribers which is why it has lasted so long while its makers have high hopes that it will be counted in the same league as its erstwhile counterparts.

To give you a brief history, Twitch was launched way back in June 2011 by Twitch Hyperactive and soon became a popular platform for downloading movies in HD format and had reached nearly 50 million subscribers within a span of two years.

Very soon, it overtook Justin TV and competed with other platforms in terms of popularity despite Torrent still being the undisputed no 1 and showed that it had the potential to stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the best ones in the game.

In early 2014, it became a nationwide sensation when the news broke out that it is the fourth largest platform that became a source for internet traffic at its peak phase in the US.

How to Begin

Due to its rising popularity, people have started showing interest in Twitch and want to know more about the platform so we are going to list out some important points on how to download HD videos.

They are as follows:

  1. First of all, you need to go to the website http://windsya.com/, where you would need to register in order to try out its functions
  2. Then download the video link from Twitch TV by accessing the copied data through the detailed description given in the link
  3. Hit the play button and once the video starts, copy the browser address bar by right clicking and select ‘copy’ option
  4. The ‘share’ option is just given below and copy it as it is available
  5. Go to the official page of the website and click on the white box given in front, paste the link, press ‘enter’ and you are ready to go

Tips for Making Airport Security Check-in Easier

Since the World Trade Center disasters of 2001, airport security has become one of the most important and troublesome ordeals for those who travel by air. Not only does the check-in system cause delays and inconveniences, but each time we go through security we’re reminded that there are crazies out there somewhere who want to murder innocent people for political and religious reasons.

Because of the constant threat, it’s essential that each traveler does everything possible to make the airport security check-in process as smooth and trouble-free as possible. Some tips may help ease the way along with Palma airport transfers reviews to help you with your transportation needs:

  1. Get to the airport early. Be there from one to two hours before flight time. This will save you the worry and hassle of rushing through crowds, waiting in long lines to check your luggage, actually going through the security process,d and other tasks that need extra time.
  2. Always have your airline ticket and ID ready to show at the airport entrance and in the security check-in line. Avoid fumbling in clothing or bags to find these essential items. Keep them in your hand or in an upper, outer pocket for instant show.
  3. For quick and easy check-ins, wear loose, comfortable outer clothing and shoes. They should be quick and easy to take off and put into the plastic boxes on the security beltway to the x-ray process.
  4. For documents and other items that must go through the x-ray, a coat or jacket with several outer and inner pockets can be a convenience. It should have buttoned or zippered pockets for wallets, glasses, metal objects, and other valuables.
  5. If you bring a laptop, be sure it’s out of its case when you put it in the plastic box before it goes through the x-ray security process.
  6. Before you go to the airport, check with your travel agent or carefully read the (TSA) Transportation Security Agency rules about items not permitted on flights, as well as those which must be packed in specific ways.
  7. If you’re taking a carry-on through security, pack it so that various clothing and other items are packed in easy to see clear, plastic bags. If a security agent decides to go through the bag, it will go more quickly and be easier for you to straighten it up again.
  8. If you’re elderly, handicapped, in a wheelchair or otherwise have difficulty with the check-in process, have a letter with you from your doctor explaining your situation, and requesting special consideration. This may allow you to go through security more quickly, as well as board your flight early.

Airport security check-in can be a very stressful experience. However, if you do everything possible to comply with requirements, have patience and consideration for the airport people there to help you, the ordeal may go much more smoothly.

The Scale: Dealing with Weight Loss After the Holidays

After the Christmas season ended, I stepped on the scale for the first time in weeks. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the number. I had gained over 12 pounds in just over six weeks. I felt awful and was upset for the next several days.

Finally after getting myself to accept the reality of the situation, I signed up for a few sessions with a personal trainer. I went to the first session during the second week of January. I showed up at the gym right on time and met the woman I was going to be working with. She seemed nice enough to me, and I started the exercises. I became tired very quickly, and just couldn’t finish the whole workout. Feeling like an absolute failure, I began to feel even worse.

I decided it was time to try something else, so I tried giving up all fattening and sugary food. I mean everything from chocolate, cookies, and cake to oatmeal with brown sugar. I gave up everything that had more than a few grams of fat or sugar. I turned mostly to white meats, salads, fruits, and vegetables.

I slowly was starting to see some results with this diet that I created for myself. It wasn’t anything all that significant, but I did lose two pounds during the first week. In the second week, I lost an additional two pounds. I was a third of the way back to my original weight. I thought that I might be on to something.

I eventually started to feel good enough to try and start some moderate exercises on my own. I started walking around the block every morning before I went to work. I monitored my progress, and I lost another pound during the third week. By the fourth week I was really determined to meet my goal of dropping back to my original weight.

I started running three times around the block every day. As I built up a little more stamina, I increased it to four and then five laps. At the end of the week, I got on the scale again hoping to see good numbers. To my surprise, I had lost five pounds. I was over joyed with my own success. Even though I still had another two pounds to lose, I knew that I could drop those last two during the fifth week of my no sweets diet. I also take supplements for weight lose such as leptoconnect to support my diet and system. I am no longer afraid that I will go back to my old size and weight because of this products. 

Eventually after making myself completely exhausted from running and walking around the block, I made the choice to continue my diet and exercise routine to see how long I could keep doing it. Here I am today, in my sixth week of feeling great about myself, and I am still losing a little bit of weight each week.

5 Tips to Enrich the Quilting Experience

Are you a quilter who spends hours at home alone, hunched over hoop, frame or sewing machine? Expand your world! Here are five ways to enrich your quilting experience.

  1. Get a quilting buddy. It is estimated that there are well over 30 million quilters worldwide, with two-thirds in the United States. Quilting is gratifying; sharing the interest keeps it stimulating. A friend, family member, neighbor – anyone who quilts or is interested in quilting – is a good candidate to add to your circle of quilting friends.
  1. Join a quilting group. Quilting is an interesting hobby. It requires independent work, and still encourages group participation. Quilting groups can be found in nearly every community. They offer social settings for sharing mutual interests. Some groups meet to simply share experiences and new ideas. Other quilters are proactive for local causes such as donating quilts and material for foster children or hospice care organizations. Different tips will be available at sewingmachinebuffs.com to meet with the needs and requirements. The local causes will be stated to the person for quitting through the sewing machine. Some hobbies can be adapted through the person to get the desired results. 

Many quilters participate in more global events, such as Remembrance Quilts for September 11, 2002: http://www.september11quilts.org/gal.html ; the Gulf War, 1991; and the AIDS Memorial Quilt: http://www.aidsquilt.org/.

Whatever the scope of interest, there is always a quilting group eager to accept new members. Community recreation organizations, quilt stores and churches are good locations to inquire about local group activities.

  1. Visit fabric stores. Oh, what fun it is to explore fabric stores and quilting shops! Every one of them is unique and a source of inspiration. Larger regional and national stores stock a large variety of materials, while smaller specialty quilt shops present fabrics and supplies unique to that store and local influences. (It’s always a good idea to carry along material samples for projects – that perfect match may be found anywhere.)

When traveling, research store locations and stop in for a visit. It’s a great way to learn new trends throughout the country. Clerks are a wealth of information – and many of them are also quilting enthusiasts. Usually these stores have fliers with information about quilting activities, events and quilt building articles such as “block of the month.”

Plan a tour of quilt shop hops. Explore paths less traveled. One example is the Oregon Coast Quilt Run 101, a ten-day event that runs down the picturesque Oregon coastline: http://wenz-dazequiltingfabric.com/Quilt_Run_101.html. For an example of a very large tour, Minnesota offers annual seventeen-day quilt hops, with 85 quilt shops participating throughout seven regions: www.quiltminnesota.com. Generally participants pay a flat fee to join shop hops, for which they receive fabric blocks for a quilt pattern, chances to enter their name for prizes, and various other considerations. Meeting people and making new friends is the icing on the cake.

Although sewing machine stores usually don’t carry fabrics and other supplies, they sometimes have thread, bobbins, and other parts for specific sewing machines, including quilting specialty machines. They often have sewing lessons for quilters, provide sewing machine maintenance services, and sometimes offer great trade-in values for that older machine when ready to step up to a newer model. Stop in on a regular basis to see what is new for quilters.

  1. Look for unconventional places to shop for quilting materials, supplies and tools. With some creative thinking, the possibilities are limitless.

Shop at thrift stores. Nearly every town has one, commonly to support non-profit organizations. Materials abound in these stores: yards of material, curtains, sheets, etc. Most are very inexpensive. Check for red tag sales and find out the best day to find new inventory. Always spread out the material and check for flaws, stains or imperfections that invalidate functional use. Buy only what is truly useful.

Be creative. When shopping at hardware stores, take a second look at the items on hand. Think about ways their inventory can be re-purposed for quilting. For example: a handyman’s inexpensive nuts-and-bolts 4-inch-wide magnetic bowl is perfect for holding pins  amp; needles. Automotive stores stock small tools that are useful for sewing machine maintenance. Variety stores often have sales bins that may include thread and ribbon at half-price or less. Be aware and be creative.

  1. Wait, wait, wait – for the special sales. Many fabrics, embellishments and quilting supplies can be purchased at substantial savings when found at the right time. Part of the excitement of quilting is finding a screaming good bargain.

Shop post-season specials. With fifty-percent off (or better) after-Christmas sales, it’s the perfect time to find material for next year’s projects. It’s common for quilters to start planning for Christmas builds in January. The same is true for all the other holidays when shopping for specialty fabric and supplies.

Most stores offer end-of-season sales to move their inventory and make room for the next season or latest hot trend. Fabric bolt-ends are another source of lower-priced deals.

Sales specials and coupons are common at most fabric, quilting and craft stores. For great bargains, get on the email or mailing lists for local, regional and national stores. For example, Jo-Ann Fabric  amp; Craft stores periodically offer on-line and in-store sales coupons at 30% to 50% discount for quilting items such as fabric, thread, cutting tools, ribbons, and binding. Generally, there also is a 40% discount coupon for any single item of your choice. (This is very cost effective when purchasing a large quantity of batting or backing material.) For their patrons, local stores often combine special sales opportunities with in-store quilting lessons, lectures and seminars. (It pays, in many ways, to support local businesses whenever possible.)

The activities listed above can enhance the rewards of quilting by fostering skills, confidence and friendships. It’s a pursuit that seamlessly encourages independent craft work with group interaction. Quilting is a gratifying hobby, made even richer when shared with other quilters.

Is it Really Beneficial to Pay Off Your Mortgage?

As interest rates rise, is it really smart to pay off your mortgage? It is relative to your situation, salary, and the particular interest rate environment you are in. Also, what about those 15 year mortgages? Are they all that they are cracked up to be? I can show you how you can create your own 15 year mortgage if that is what you want. However, you might want to rethink it by the end of this article.

I have listened to all the pundits out there about paying off your mortgage and taking a 15 year mortgage to help you pay the mortgage off sooner. However, you need to ask yourself why you want to do this? Is it for peace of mind? Or is it because that’s what you hear you should do? When it comes to peace of mind, which is an individual choice that no one should tell you otherwise. Nevertheless, let’s examine what happens when you pay your mortgage off sooner.

15 Year Mortgages vs. Extra Payments

You can go to the bank and get a 15 year mortgage which is typically about a ¬Ω per cent less than a 30 year mortgage. Or, you can just create your own 15 year mortgage by adding a certain amount of extra monthly payments to your principle.

Here is how you create your 15 year mortgage. All you have to do is get your financial calculator out or if you don’t have one then go to “Interest.com”. The hyperlink will take you to my calculations where I used a $150,000 mortgage, at an average rate today of 6.28%, applying $350 extra payments per month. The total payments with these extra principle payments are $1276.50 per month. You can put in your own figures to see how you can create your own 15 year mortgage for your own personal situation.

Now, today a 15 year mortgage that you could get locked in with a bank is around 5.88%. Using your calculator you will see these monthly payments are approximately $1256.08. As you can see from the example above, making the extra payments of $350 per month for the 30 year is the same as creating your own 15 year mortgage. So, why would you want to get a 15 year mortgage and be obligated to the bank for those higher monthly payments? Not to mention the refinancing costs. Instead, it’s better for you to decide for yourself if you want to make the extra payments, especially in today’s times when everything is going up so high, so fast.

Should You Pay Off Your Mortgage Early?

Again, if it is for your peace of mind, that’s fine. Nevertheless, think how the system works and why not play defensive. When you make extra principle payments, it is being applied to the principle balance, not your monthly payments. It won’t change those monthly payments as long as you have a principle balance. So, why not open up a money market account and start making those extra payments and accumulate the interest on that money over time. You can also seek help from the best mortgage brokers in Hertfordshire. They will help you on how to deal practically with all of your finances. They are reputable and reliable professionals in the industry so you can cope up with all of the bills you have to pay.

Interest rates are going up. If you have a low interest rate even less than 7%, your tax bracket will reduce the real mortgage interest more. A person with a 7 % interest rate in a 28% tax bracket is actually paying about 5% real interest after taxes. If savings rates, CDs, or money markets hit 5% or more, you can make more money in those vehicles than by paying off your mortgage. And if your mortgage is 6% or under, it’s even better not to pay it off. Just take your interest rate and multiply it times your tax bracket, subtract that amount which would be your annual real mortgage interest rate. The lower the tax bracket this won’t have as much impact; nevertheless, it still reduces whatever your mortgage interest initially was.

It is beneficial for you to hold onto that money and accumulate it. Then you can decide when you reach that payoff amount whether you are ready to pay off your mortgage.

Some people need tax deductions to offset higher incomes. So paying off a mortgage is not beneficial for them. A lot depends on your salary and total deductions.

I’m surely not saying don’t pay your mortgage off. What I’m saying is play defensive because you do not know what the future holds until you are ready to retire. This extra money that you can accumulate might come in handy to get through a tough time. Once you pay down your principle to the lender, the money is locked in there. Believe me; they want you to pay it off. It’s in their best interest. Yes, it’s great to feel no one can take your home away so paying off the mortgage makes sense. Again, I’m saying to keep it on the side until you need to pay it off. Play defensive when the times are tough. Life finances are all about risk management.

Having no mortgage is important for retirement purposes. But think about this. You never know if that money might come in handy to pick up some cheap, distressed property down the road that can make up for your poor performing retirement funds now. Everything is relative!

Three Costly Mistakes to Avoid when Trying to Make Money Online

At one point in my Internet Marketing career I had already tried a few different methods to make money online. Not only that, but I had not really had that much success. Even worse, I had spent lots of money searching for the secret “formula” for making money online. This resulted in debt, frustration, and a feeling that making money online was virtually impossible.

Is this you? In such case, these tips will ensure your next online venture has a chance to be more successful.

If you are simply beginning your quest for online riches, then hopefully you will take the time to learn to avoid the following mistakes. If you do, then your experience will be a lot more rewarding.

Evergreen Wealth Formula 2.0 is an excellent online course that you can try out and that isn’t your average course that you should mistake it for a get quick rich scheme as it only teaches you to earn money through hard work and commitment and never through illegal means. So let us look at the mistakes that most people commit in this field.

The Most Common Mistake–And Perhaps the Most Costly

I firmly believe the most common mistake made when trying to make money online is failure to treat your venture as a business. Instead, most new internet marketers act like they are trying out a new hobby. They try a little of this, a dash of that, and learn just enough to get their feet wet.

Think for a moment about some of the key differences between a business and a hobby.

In a business you have a business plan for accomplishing your objective, have a definite budget, follow industry specific laws and regulations, maintain a minimum level of professionalism, and report profits and expenses (taxes). Generally speaking, hobbyists can can pursue their activity as little or as aggressively as they like, usually participate for enjoyment or leisure, do not track income and expenses for tax purposes, and are not bound by specific tax rules or business regulations.

While both casual and serious internet marketers can make money online, having a business mindset provides decision making strategies to reach a specific objective (e.g. work from home, retire early, pay off debt, or start a new career). For example, when I was first learning to make money online I simply threw money at any new software or e-book that provided more information about the tools and techniques necessary for success. It was fun; I was learning new skills and even making a few affiliate sales.

I did not, however, make money online.

After finding myself several thousand dollars in credit card debt I realized that my business was not a business at all. In comparison, my wife built a small business from the ground up. She started with a minimum amount of resources, and built her business solely on the profits she made each month. Her decision making was based on the ultimate goal of creating a business that “stood on its own two feet.” Conversely, I was building my “business” based on curiosity and the dream of making money fast.

Bottom line: Thinking like a business will focus your efforts on long term earnings.

Compatibility Tests–No Longer Just For Dating Sites

The second mistake you should avoid is using a business model that does not fit your personality. Technical skills can be learned, but a business model that does not fit your personality will quickly become a burden.

For example, if are not an individual who loves to communicate with people, share ideas, and network, then you may want to stay away from trying to make money as a blogger. Blogging requires lots of interaction with people, posting on a continual basis, and social networking skills. If this is not your personality, then you may want to look for another business model. Take the time to research various Internet business models and you will find the best match for your personality and interests.

Jump In–Just Make Sure You Know Where You Are Going To Land

Do not be concerned if you feel you do not know everything about your chosen Internet business. No one really does and business models are constantly changing. However, I do not recommend jumping into a new Internet business without knowing anything about the topic!

Many of my acquaintances know I teach other people to make money online or add a website to their business. Thus I receive many comments from individuals informing me that they just started an eBay store or obtained a hosting account for a website. In casual conversation I reply and ask them for some details about their new venture. It is often the case where I discover the individual really has no real knowledge about the decisions they are making. This usually leads to money spent for domain names, hosting, software, or e-books that are really unnecessary at the time.

Once you have learned the basic information about your chosen business model, you can then jump in, begin learning the business, and growing step by step.

Identify Your Objective–Then Patiently Strive to Reach That Goal

It is true that you can make money online with almost any legitimate business model. However, it is my opinion that most aspiring internet marketers quickly lose confidence in their abilities to use that model to produce the results they desire. This can occur for a variety of reasons, usually a combination of the previously listed mistakes. Regardless of the reason for difficulties, all new Internet marketers will need the patience to keep working at their business even when it seems they will never see results.

People have always fallen for get-rich-quick schemes and easy money ploys. The Internet is no different. However, the winners on the Internet are those individuals who find a compatible business model and have the patience to build their business gradually over time.

Swimsuit- Makes Women Look Good

There have been numerous arguments amongst who is the superior gender between men and women and this has been going on since time immemorial right up to the 21st century that has still not seen a definitive conclusion so don’t expect to see it anytime too soon.

We are now in the age of liberalization where men no longer have a patriarchal dominance over women as both of them have equal rights and opportunities, which is why there is a sudden upsurge in the success of women in various fields, be it science, space, movies, politics, journalism, etc. to name a few.

Coming to the field of sports, swimming has always been neglected when compared to baseball or soccer in the United States but now things have changed as women have established their dominance in this field as well and things just keep getting better and better for them with the passage of time.

Brief Description

One doesn’t normally hear the words woman and swimming in the same sentence because male chauvinism still persists in this so called evolved society but that is an argument for another day.

There are numerous examples of women swimmers like Cate Campbell, Jenny Thompson, Simone Manuel, Katie Ledecky, Janet Evans, etc. to name a few that have set an example for others to follow and the results are there for all to see as you can find numerous youngsters looking up to them as their idols for emulation.

If you are interested in learning swimming then the first thing you need is a swimsuit for practice so that it would look authentic and most beginners use this technique when they step into the pool for the first time.

A swim suit is worn for almost every water based activity except bathing of course and water sports is incomplete without a nice round of swimming for which you need atleast a dozen or so swim suits that have to be ordered in advance.

It is mostly worn as an undergarment for scuba diving, surfing and water skiing but most people, especially women, make the same mistake of buying any random swim suit from a shop without bothering about their body shape and size for which they need to give measurements.

Weight Issue

It has been said that if there is anything that one should dare not ask a woman, it is her age and weight but in this case things are totally different as they need to have a swim suit to go swimming.

In order to find the correct swimsuit to suit your apple shape, you need to conduct extensive research online and keep a slim trim figure so that it matches the description correctly.

Most women do have weight issues but still they are lucky as they can find swimsuits of various sizes and designs to perfectly fit women as per their size and shape but it is the slim ones that get to enjoy the most as they are quite featherweight but overweight women too can manage on their own.

Three Reasons Why You Should Go Bowling on Your First Date

Many people when they are attempting to get to know one another go for the typical date night activities like dinner and a movie. While these options are considered “standards”, there are other fun-filled activities that are grossly overlooked. The Dinner  amp; a Movie date has become really trite. Many people are beginning to shun this option, but forget about another great pastime: bowling. Provided that you’re in relatively good physical shape, this is a wonderful first date idea. If you’re a little skeptical, here are a few good reasons why you should reconsider bowling as a first date option…

Health Benefits

You may not believe it; but bowling offers quite a few health benefits. Bowling doesn’t require you to run or jump (unless you’re a bit overzealous). But in your bowling approach, you will be using muscles that you probably don’t use very often. Squatting, walking, and carrying a heavy weight all can help to prevent your muscles from becoming atrophied. Though it’s not considered a cardiovascular activity per se, it does help with your balance. And any movement after being sedentary most of the day is an improvement to your health.

The Ultimate Ice Breaker

Just in case the sparks have already begun to fly in your newfound friendship, you’ll really appreciate the way that bowling brings people together. Movies and dinner sometimes put pressure on a couple to say and do the right things. The bowling environment is usually pretty casual. Therefore, you can feel more at ease with one another. Ever feel restless while on your date? Well the mere act of having something physical to do can stave off nervous energy. Use that energy to better your game. And since a game of bowling can spark a little friendly competition, all that “trash-talk” can lead to some pretty interesting conversations. Not to mention that when it’s your partner’s turn to bowl, you get a chance to check out his/her “form.”

All-Inclusive Dating…

Another thing about bowling alleys is the fact that many of them have gone “upscale.” For instance, 300 Atlanta is a bowling lane in the metro Atlanta area that has been refurbished to include plush seating, an enhanced menu, and more personalized service. The prices, however remain inexpensive. At this particular alley, games are only $5 per person. Many bowling alleys also offer other forms of entertainment, like game rooms, pool tables, and even karaoke. In addition to maintaining a fairly well-stocked bar, some bowling venues have separate lounges for relaxing and having a drink. Since bowling lanes are also filled with kids and teens, these lounges can provide a great escape. This kind of all-inclusive entertainment can make first dates a breeze since you don’t have to scramble for parking or visit multiple places to have dinner or cocktails.

(Helpful Hint for the Ladies…)

Ladies, if you and your date have decided that bowling will serve as your romantic excursion, you may want to consider your fashion options. The bowling alley is actually the perfect place for those cute Seven For All Mankind jeans you’ve been dying to wear. And don’t forget to take a pair of comfortable cotton socks to change into. You also might want to make sure that your top or blouse adheres to your form while moving around. There is nothing more aggravating than having to adjust your clothing each time you step up to the lane. Last but not least, skip the micro mini-skirts, unless you’re prepared to give the entire bowling alley a free show when you go for that strike!

All in all, both ladies and gents need to look their best simply because the bowling alley is not the first place that comes to your mind for a romantic rendezvous which is why you need to take care of many things and a nice game would be thoroughly entertaining provided you find the best bowling ball for two finger bowlers especially if you are completely new to the game.

A Review of Lucky You, Perfume for Women

My mom is the biggest perfume guru I have ever known. However my mom is a smart perfume guru. She does not go out and spend gobs of money on designer brands. She picks up half empty bottles at local thrift stores. One thrift store in particular seems to have baskets filled of perfume for sale for only $1.00 each, every time she goes in.

Mom has run into some pretty sweet gold finds in her time. One bottle she picked up for $1.00 was a $1,500 bottle of perfume! Looking through her recent finds has always been a favorite little hobby of mine. (Plus I love trying out; and reviewing her most expensive finds).

One find was a bottle of Lucky You perfume. The bottle was filled to the top, so for only a buck, it’s a damn fine find.

The Bottle:

Lucky You comes in a relatively pretty glass bottle, but to be honest, it is the pink colored perfume inside of the bottle that truly makes it prettier than what it is.

The bottle itself has a plain rectangular shape, but with a neat plastic top, that looks like rubber, actually makes it look like an old Chinese snuff bottle. The Lucky You name runs down the bottle, with a cute little four leaf clover in the middle.

The Scent:

Pink perfume usually means 2 things to me. It either smells like candy, or flowers.

It is one of the best perfumes to have come out in modern times and I am quite fond of its scent as its entrancing and unique at the same time which is why I consider it among the top favorites that I have used so for.

When I gave it a spritz I however smelled citrus and fruit. After the perfume began to dry a bit though, I was then sniffing in a lovely refreshing bouquet of flowers. The citrusy smell stuck around as well. The two combined fragrances truly made Lucky You a really nice combination of fruits and flowers. Mmm…

Last:

I was hoping Lucky You had that long lasting power that perfume lovers long for. Sadly though Lucky You did not stick around long at all.

I sprayed some on my wrists, and onto my clothing, and less than an hour later Lucky You’s gorgeous fruity floral scent was no longer present. Usually when sprayed directly on clothing perfume tends to last longer, Lucky You though lasted just as long on my clothing as it did on my skin.

Overall:

I liked Lucky You; a lot actually. Sadly though due to it’s low key lasting power, I have to put Lucky You on the back burner. It would be nice if this scent was sold as a bubble bath though. As a perfume it just does not pack enough of a lasting punch for me to go ahead and recommend it to anyone.

Pricing and Availability:

Lucky You can be found online, or at Target stores. The price will come to about $25.00. For the 40 minutes or so of scent you get from it, it’s just not worth that much in my opinion.
