Chores and your marriage

Housekeeping, CleaningOne of the big complaints I hear from my customers that are married is about the issue of chores. I can tell you from my own 30-year marriage that the issue of chores was a huge deal in contributing to the conclusion of the marriage.
I clearly remember the problem that’broke the camel’s back.’ My ex-husband wanted to have our big Thanksgiving dinner at our home rather than at my parents’ house, and I was all for it IF he promised to help. My experience in the past was that I ended up doing all of the work and was too tired to really enjoy the dinner, whereas when it was in my parents’ house, I knew that my dad was an equal contributor regarding family occasions. My ex easily promised to assist, but on the day of the dinner, he did nothing. “You promised to help if we had the dinner,” I said. “I want your help.” He smirked at me, going to his usual resistance, and walked off. I felt crushed, and my inner child was upset with me which I had thought him when he so often either forgot what he had said or went into immunity.
That is the day I moved out of our bedroom and into my upstairs art attic. “I’m not going to spend some more time with you until you can be loving and caring for three months,” I told him. Previously he could do it for a week or so and then would go back to being angry and resistant. I gave him two years to learn to be loving, caring and respectful toward me and he never did, so our marriage ended.
Obviously, the issue around chores was not our only problem, but it was indicative of the underlying issues, which were a lack of caring and respect toward me, and often treating me with anger, withdrawal, sarcasm, and projection – accompanied by the crazy-making of denying that he had been doing these things, and blaming me rather. And, of course, I was an equal participant in this system with my caretaking and accepting others’ unloving behavior toward me, so I was equally responsible for the problems.
Doing Chores Together Can Produce Intimacy
Recent research indicates that couples who do chores together, rather than one individual doing more chores, or dividing the chores, have more emotional and physical intimacy. Doing chores alone can be lonely, while performing them together can be a time of fun, affection and sharing, and it certainly makes the time go by faster when you’re doing the dishes together as opposed to doing them alone. Sharing chores may be especially important once you have children, because it’s often hard to find time to get together to discuss your day or share your feelings with one another.
While the study shows that couples who do chores together have better marriages, I wonder whether the underlying truth is that couples who enjoy being together and have great marriages find that they enjoy doing errands together. Is the doing of chores together the cause of their intimacy or the consequence of it? More research would have to be done to determine this.
Regardless of which comes first, I would believe that couples who do chores with a better chance of feeling connected with each other than those who don’t. Not only does this give you a bit of time together, but in addition, it prevents both the resentment of one individual doing too many of the chores, and the loneliness of performing chores alone.
If you are not doing chores together with your partner, you might want to share these posts and see if you both may be interested in this recent research:

Getting rid of Rodents

Squirrel, Rodent, Animal, Furry, Nature

Rodents are pesky creatures that thrive best in residential areas. They live in small holes, or burrows, which they have dug along buildings and fence places. If not controlled, rodents are very hard critters to get rid of. They generally have a lifespan of one year, and the female rodents give birth to approximately four to seven liters that is composed of about six to twelve young within their lifetime.

Rodent control is needed and should be a priority in most establishments to avoid any infections and disease from spreading. Mice and rodents often enter stored food supply which they can easily contaminate. They thrive in areas where they can find a steady supply of food. Protect your loved ones, establishment, and community today.

Here are the easy and quick hints in rodent control:

1. Store and dispose of food neatly. Be certain food containers are tightly sealed. Do not dump garbage or leftover food in the lawn or compost as it is an attractive sight to rodents. Note that even left over pet food like bird seed fallen from dishes will also attract these pests.

2. Close any holes around or in your home. One of the favorite past times of rodents and mice would be to chew anything that they can get teeth onto which include wood, dirt, and more. If it’s not possible to close the gap by cement or dirt, homeowners may also place screens to keep the rodents out.

3. Keep the home and surroundings organized. Once an area is cluttered and several items are piled on top of another in a disorganized fashion, it is less likely to see any signs of rodent activity such as chewed feces or books lying around. An organized area will give rodents less chances to find places to hide and could be quickly sighted.

4. Remove stagnant water from the area. For rodent control, it is ideal to sweep off water which may be lying along the sidewalk and to regularly empty any pails or drums that have accumulated excess water which is not being used.

5. Use gadgets to help get rid of these unsanitary animals. Mice or rodent traps are available; there are also traps that give an electronic shock to pests that get caught.

6. Move quickly. When a rodent is sighted, homeowners need to quickly move to follow the hints mentioned previously. Additionally it is advisable to be open and speak to neighbors and the community about the presence of rodents for security.

If a rat is sighted, don’t run and try to forget about it. To get rid of your pest problem it’s best to call a professional pest control.

If you see an Armadillo leave it be

Armadillo Natchez Trace Parkway Nine Bande

On a recent trip to Florida, my family decided to go out and walk around. We were enjoying the walk, since the hotel was by a lake and you could see the fireworks from three parks, the day could not have been going any better.

Then we see something in the dark, moving about. To little for a gator, maybe a raccoon. So we went to investigate. As we approached the creature, it seemed unaware of our existence. We slowly crept closer and closer, till we understood it to be an armadillo. She was peacefully wondering through the shadow, beside the lake, enjoying her day walk also.

Still no fear or concern from our woods friend. The father of my children called them over with him, to watch the little woman in her natural habitat. The obedient offspring did as they were told and joined the stalking. They followed her to what appeared to be a burrow in the nook of a Cypress Tree. She became agitated and didn’t enter. Instead she turned and took note of our team, but was not intimidated and to examine us. Crazy people do things that aren’t in their nature when on vacation in Florida, so my husband decided to show the kids how armadillo’s are like rolly polly bugs, assuring us it would roll up in a ball when antagonized. He picked up a stick and hit the brush . She ignored him. He threw a stone in her direction, she shrugged him off. To prove his point to his children, he ran at the armadillo, expecting her to roll up and be still.

This armadillo ran at my husband so fast, he dropped his flip flops hoping to get away. Well, here came the armadillo, following my husband, not us, hissing and spitting and creating unnatural noises I have never heard the likes of since.

When we finally made our way back to our condo (we forgo the elevator, no time when the armadillo was on our route ), my husband made the profound observation,”Armadillo’s are less passive animals as I had been told”.

Pecan Tree

Tree, Beech, Pecan, Summer, Nature

Many individuals always assume that pecans are a southern nut. This is probably because of all, Georgia develops a large amount of Pecans, and second because pecan pie is such a distinctly southern dessert. Not many holidays go by without at least a pecan dish of some sort gracing the table. Most learn that pecan trees are a tough shrub that may grow in over half of the USA and as far north as southern Canada.

It wasn’t until recently, though, that pecan trees had been discovered deep in the wilds of places like Wisconsin and Illinois. This is heartening because it means that if the rugged pecan tree can withstand the weather changes of those states then it’s likely it can be adapted to grow in even colder climates.

There are actually over 500 species of pecans in existence so it’s not terribly surprising that some species of this tree would have the ability to withstand cruel northern winters. In actuality, the tree itself can produce nuts for well over 100 years. The only difference between the varieties of pecans is the shape and a small flavor difference. This is to be expected given different soil compositions, sun and heat availability, and access to a water source.

But if you are going to attempt to grow your own pecan tree, it’s important to purchase the right one. Because there are over 500 species, picking the tree that’s best for your particular climate can be a challenge and is definitely a game of patience. For instance, the”Desirable” pecan tree species is native to Mississippi so it will flourish and produce best in warm, humid climates such as that of Georgia or Florida. However, the”Wichita” variety grows best in western and central Texas because it thrives best in humid environments. But be ready to wait. The most precocious of pecan trees, the ones that bear nuts of the fastest, still take about five years.

The fact that the pecan tree originated in Texas makes it easy to believe that this is a sturdy tree given the climate variety of the Lone Star State. Recent discoveries of the tree in harsh, cold surroundings lead one to believe that what’s understood about the pecan tree is only getting started. All of this is fantastic news because it means that no matter where you spend your time eating at the table (especially during the holidays, that is the time of year when pecans sell the best), you will be able to have a delicious, locally grown, pecan pie.

Best type of Guns

Accuracy International As50 Semi-Automatic

 

I’ve been asked about the sort of gun or ammo to buy for home defense and about concealed carry of firearms and knives. Some of those questions were from those who have never owned guns before and a few from those who”despise” firearms and even hate gun owners as well to a degree.

One of my buddies has interest in a company close to the World Trade Center site. 1 close friend was the person who first reported the airplane that struck the Pentagon, about three windows from his office window. Another friend of mine lives on Long Island and works in the construction industry and at a enormous lumber shop there; so she’s in constant contact with employees and contractors connected to the nyc area. I’m no authority, in my mind, nor compared to a few I know, but I am quite open in my communications on anything. So, I am asked about plenty of things. I have been around guns, gun stores, police, army, and worked as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer, as a Security Policeman in the U. S. Coast Guard, and as a Safety and Public Relations individual at FEMA for some time in disaster preparedness and as an onsite disaster center worker.

I do have some remarks and some are quite powerful. They’re based on knowledge and expertise and information from people who know better than I.

For the exact reasons we have smoke detectors, first aid kits, fire extinguishers; lifestyle, health, dental and house insurance. Because preparation, preparation and investment in appropriate instruments and apparatus — give us more control over ourselves and our fate and well being in almost any arena. And, having greater control of our own lives and potential is a native issue and need for the majority of us.

I think, and many of us believe, that any life worth living is worth defending. We’ve committed 40, 50, 60, or 100 hours per week to supplying our families so that they might live life without significant interruptions or inconveniences and death or injury in the hands of a”Bad Person”. Disaster is definitely not part of our strategy for optimal success for us and our loved ones.

Because people are natively brave nor brave and because people are more comfortable, less fearful, having something to hand for family and self defense; using a weapon to hand or a process of protection and defense is an internal instinct that’s intrinsic and native. That may include choices to lock the doors, live in safer places and remaining awake to news and current events. The Bad Person, BP yells as such implements in the hands of someone not used to fighting for their lives and it’s actually laughable if you have ever seen a street thug fight or assault someone.

The truth is the police aren’t even expected to arrive to shield you. They’re expected only, by legislation, to come and mark chalk lines around your dead body and that of your loved ones – and to write up the accounts, take pictures of the blood splattered walls and flooring, and file them away together with a report on what they find in the spectacle of your murder.

None. A non shooter should have no gun. Possessing a gun without taking time and effort to learn the way to use it properly and safely reach what is aimed at isn’t just absurd but it’s dangerous. HereI agree with all the anti-gun men and women. They need ton’t have a gun because they would not use the gun and would probably shoot someone for nothing, or miss and hit somebody else. Non-Shooters should not own firearms, period. It’s a breeze that if they do not trust others with a gun, then they certainly aren’t worthy of trust with one themselves, and that is certain.

First of all, do not get a gun if you’re not going to become proficient with it and that takes some time, training and repeat. My first suggestion is that the .38 caliber/.357 caliber revolvers. These are cheap and easy to find used or new. The .357 revolver and may be used with low power .38 caliber ammunition for training and for defense the identical gun will permit the use of extremely strong .357 ammunition. They’re made to hold 6 or 5 cartridges and that ought to be fine for home protection. They are quite precise and fairly easy to learn. They’ve no”security” lever so under pressure and at the terror of having to use one for self defense, there’s absolutely no safety to keep in mind about changing to the flame position from the secure position. Many, many individuals have died as a result of attempting to defend themselves with a gun which was on safe when they had to fire it to prevent someone from killing them. The Bad Person will not wait for you to bear in mind the safety. I am not in favor of safeties in any respect. Every individual in the house that has access to the gun has to be trained in safe handling.

Once someone has fired several revolvers or several handguns, a lot choose a pistol. A pistol is a semi automatic handgun that doesn’t have a cylinder but includes a magazine to hold several cartridges instead. It’s called a semi-automatic since it moves a brand new cartridge in place to befired whenever the trigger is pulled, the same as a revolver. Some pistols hold 15 or 20 rounds or shots because we call it. Modern pistols are only permitted to have 10 rounds in America because of some idiotic legislation passed by people who shouldn’t be allowed to possess guns themselves.

Incidentally, an”automatic” is a gun which fires each the shots, in machine gun rapid fire style with a single pull of the trigger. Few people own and even fewer can efficiently use an automatic weapon. They are better for sound than for hitting something. The real best option for home defense is a shotgun. But most individuals want a pistol as it is a lot easier to have alongside the bed and to get ready. The shotgun however is a lot easier to target under pressure and is more likely to stop an attacker quicker. Shotguns are available in many sizes and configurations. They are available in several cartridge sizes also. The two most common sizes are 12 gauge and 20 gauge, there are quite a few different sizes but for home defense we will follow the more common 12 or 20. Ordinarily the shotgun is less costly, easier to use, and better for protection than a pistol by far.

Lots of individuals feel that shotguns have taken that spreads, to send out a wall of lead, and that you can not miss with a shotgun. . The longest distance most people will have the ability to shoot in shield, within our houses, is about 20 feet. At the distance the size of the ring of shot from a shotgun is roughly two and a half inches in diameter or less. Some folks want to get all kinds of specialty ammo to get a shotgun to use in home defense. That isn’t needed. The lowest priced”bird shot” is the best for home defense and also the least likely to go through wall after wall after wall through your home and to the sleeping rooms of the rest of your loved ones and the neighbors up and down the road.

Incidentally, most pistol ammo will go through three or four partitions, maybe more, before it stops in the event that you miss the person you’re shooting in self defense. Where are the children? Consider it before you buy a gun.

Guns are costly and good guns are extremely expensive. There are a number of ways to beat the system however. There are many used guns on the marketplace, especially police firearms, because everybody, particularly the police, want to have the coolest and most awesome and many new gun that’s being advertised. They trade in the older guns and frequently the older firearms are the better firearms although less trendy. Silly are not they? There are a number of great used pistols, revolvers and shotguns from the gun stores of America and a number of them are superior to the new stuff in reliability and precision. Go figure! J Or you can buy a new gun.

Regardless of what you get, make sure you learn how to use the gun properly and get some instruction from a person who knows guns and secure handling. Most men believe that they are genetically endowed with gun smarts and they’re not. In fact most men that are first time or infrequent users of firearms are a lot more stupid and a lot more dangerous than girls and no more likely to hit what they aim for .

To begin with, according to my own experience. I’ve taught several hundred people how to take for the first time and have helped a few dozen others take better. By the way I am not a professional firearms instructor, only a willing friend and neighbor who has taken a lot and owned a great deal of guns over a great deal of years.

Should you get a gun, and I am not always sure you should; maintain your defensive firearm handy but protected and practice, practice, practice. Practice frequently enough to be harmful to the Bad Persons and frequently enough to NOT be harmful to yourself and your loved ones. At a minimum which will be weekly for a month or two and then monthly for many months and then at least every two or three months afterwards. Even people who hunted all the time 30 or 40 years ago but not much in the past ten years, aren’t to be trusted to be secure and true with a firearm now.

The absurd news shows, the significant media day news is fond of displaying all kinds of buzz saw bullets and bullets which will penetrate bullet proof vests and all manner of other crap. Now, regarding ammunition; you do not need a great deal of ammo for self defense. In a defensive situation if you want more than ten or twenty shots, then you’re probably going to die anyway since there are too many people for one to defend against or you’re just too poor a chance to defend yourself. But under the strain of self defense, It’s not unusual for police to overlook every single shot from a 15 shot

Pistol when shooting a Bad Person that’s just 15 or 20 feet away. In take outs where trained police are shooting at BPs who also have guns, it isn’t uncommon for several hundred shots to be fired for every individual that’s killed. Consider It. They should practice a good deal more do not they. Fortunately BPs do not practice much, if any, either. What you need a lot of ammo for is practice.

How about all these superb and unique self defense bullets? There are bullets which cost $6 each or more which should work better and quicker for self defense. The actual fact is that it does not matter a HOOT how pricey the bullet is, even if you overlook an essential place in the attacker. Everything you need is practice, practice, practice, so you could surely hit what you’re aiming at and STOP an attacker. REAL experts say: It is far better to take the attacker 6 times fast and correctly once you will need to block the attack than it is to hit them with a single super-duper-Cowabunga-pooper bullet. So practice.

Some folks are worried about possible social chaos, rogue bands of damaging thieves, possibly dangerous riots, and there’s a certainty , for the first time, this war is occurring here and there are no safe zones, no less certain safe zones. As members of a community, we try to encourage our community with private and community commitment — a cost others are and have been willing to pay. Now it can be our turn. I am not saying this is right or correct or even necessary; I am just saying that’s what some folks feel and think.

Having a weapon is a private choice. Years ago just about all women carried a couple of long hat pins for protection and just about all guys carried a stout umbrella or a walking stick. In most countries, even today, it’s deemed sensible to take a dagger, a dirk, or maybe a pistol (like in Israel) or a gun all the time for self defense. I don’t have a position either way for whether or not YOU have a weapon or opt to defend yourself against those who would rob or hurt you and those close to you.

I do take 1 position however. I think that people who say guns are bad and nobody should have a gun and no one should protect themselves with a gun should have signs in their garments, their automobiles and around their homes and businesses. That sign should say”I don’t believe in guns or other weapons, and I don’t have any weapons, and I won’t defend myself, and I don’t believe in anybody protecting themselves from an assailant.” If you’re really against self defense and against firearms – establish it and post the signs!

Otherwise, for those of intellect; Take care, prepare, practice and be secure.

Child proof your home

Image result for child proof

Infants and toddlers are a source of joy and happiness to a household, but they are very prone to accidents. They’re at a phase where they can walk around and explore, but they not really aware of risks around them. That is why it is the responsibility of their parents or guardians to make sure the homes toddler and babies live in are safe and child-friendly. Here we’ll look into some of the common accident areas in the house and discuss how you can make them safer for your kids.

Stairs

The danger of being careless when using stairs requires no excuse. Even adults easily get injured when they move down and up the stairs recklessly. And the harms from stair-related accidents are often severe. Here are some strategies to make stairs safer.

· Adding a slip-proof matting on individual steps

· Adding a soft rubber mat on the exact spot where the stair finishes on the floor to reduce injury

· Educating kids stair safety

· Putting a non-slip grip onto the stair handles

Electrical outlets

Electricity is important for our modern society, but they aren’t supposed to come into contact with human skin because they can cause myriad injuries. Most adults know better than to poke their bare hands inside an electrical outlet, but not children. One of the common causes of child accidents is electrocution. So if you have children, make sure your electric outlets are safe.

· Installing power outlet covers help a lot in keeping your child safe particularly if the outlet is not being used.

· Renovating the house to transfer outlets greater beyond the reach of kids

Bathrooms

The danger in the bathroom is slipping. Young and old people can fall prey to the lack of friction due to soapy wet tiles. But sometimes, there isn’t any way around it. Here is what you can do.

· Place anti-slip vinyl or rubber mats on the bathroom floor

· Add some soft cushion on the corners of the sink and rubberized cushion on the toilet seat to prevent injuries.

· make certain that the soap is procured in the tray so that it does not accidentally fall off and cause an accident.

Kitchen

The kitchen is the place where you cook your meals, but it’s not the place for children to be alone by themselves. Unfortunately, they do occasionally come to the kitchen and play with anything they can find there such as knives, forks, and other sharp objects.

· make certain that the oven has child safety features so they can’t open it and come inside.

· Secure knives in high places so children can not reach it.

Children love to explore because for them everything is fresh, an experience, but the cabinets and shelves aren’t places for them to attempt to climb. Make sure the cabinets and shelves are secured by the wall behind so they won’t fall down if a child does grow up on them. The corners of tables and chairs as well should have cushions in case a child hits his or her head.

By child-proofing your house, you can be certain that your children can enjoy growing up without getting into accidents, which can put their lives in danger.

Are you just friends?

The short answer is ‘Yes’, but with conditions.

Men and women cannot be friends from the very beginning because the reason a man, particularly, will be interested in a woman is not platonic. It is most likely to be sexual. At the start, two strangers of the opposite sex are always drawn together through basic physical attraction, nothing else. There is always the hope, by at least one party, that the friendship will lead to something more romantic, and possibly permanent. Friendship under that guise cannot ever be platonic. There will always be stress as one person attempts to keep the other person as a ‘friend’ and the other attempts to move that friendship along to something else.

Young Couple in City at Night

The only time real friendship is possible between a man and a woman is when the expectations, on either side, have been fulfilled, or clearly understood by both parties. Then they can move on to something more platonic without sexual needs interfering. By that time, both parties would either have fallen out of love, if they were lovers, and now enjoy another level of comprehension and appreciation, or they would have accepted the decision that just a Indialantic Rat Removal is possible between them.

There are some exceptions to this but there really are very few, because when it comes to people, sex will always be in the equation. That’s how two people get together to reproduce our species and that will always be in the forefront of any meeting: the capability to mate. Obviously, once that’s sorted, in one way or another, a different kind of friendship is possible. Each person will then appreciate the other in a more general way, feel more confident with the situation and much more comfortable with having the person as a real friend. Only then will real friendship be allowed to develop.

Artichokes Are Delish!

Free stock photo of plant, blur, leaves, flower

The globe artichoke is a variety of the thistle family which has been cultivated as a food. The edible portion consists of the flower bud before it comes into bloom. They shouldn’t be confused with the Jerusalem artichoke, which has nothing to do with Jerusalem or is even a part of the artichoke family. Nutritious, fat-free and lo-cal, artichokes are so versatile they can be added to salads, mixed with pasta, mixed into casseroles,stuffed, chopped up and included in cheese spreads, grilled or enjoyed just plain boiled with melted butter or garlic mayo. With their mild, slightly nutty taste, they make a wonderful addition to so many dishes, hot or cold.

The French love boiled fresh artichokes dipped in dijon mustard (what else?) With a bit of balsamic vinegar. Italians savor stuffed artichokes with a hot breadcrumb mix, as part of their popular antipasto plates or added to risotto and pasta. Spanish cuisine is brimming with artichoke recipes, as this vegetable is at the top of Spain’s hit parade. They use them in a number of ways, such as tapas (little tasting dishes), sauced, marinated, and added to rice dishes and stews. Big fans of grilling and stir frying, Thai cooks serve the artichoke in its basic form with hot dipping sauces and noodles. Chinese favor a tuber-like vegetable often known as a Chinese or Japan artichoke but in fact isn’t related in any respect.

Artichokes arrived in America from the late nineteenth century with Italian immigrants, sadly too late for foodie president Thomas Jefferson to enjoy. But one can be sure he’d have been a big fan and tried to grow them in his mansion gardens. They hold an annual Festival in the month of May, in peak season, where hundreds of delectable variations can be sampled, such as broiled, sauteed, baked, fried, marinated, Animal Control, pickled, refreshing, in soups, and of course cupcakes and ice cream. (Would I make that up?) Western farmers started producing the vegetable commercially from the 1920’s and sent them across the country.

The largest producer by far, Italy weighs in at over 450,00 tons annually. Egypt, Spain and Argentina also top the list for artichoke production, together with the U.S. ranking ninth (just 10 percent of Italy’s production). But Americans love this vegetable like no other country, in some of their most popular variations:

Just Roasted or Boiled, dipped in butter or mayo

Artichokes are a relative newcomer to the U.S. but have been adopted by one and all. At times they may be a bit expensive but can be enjoyed year ’round frozen or canned. For the lowest cost and the freshest available, they should be purchased at peak season, which starts in the month of March. If you like them simply boiled they require a half hour to cook, less time with a pressure cooker (which isn’t for the kitchen coward). But if you need a quick fix or want to add them into a dish, the canned hearts work just fine. So why not expand your vegetable world a bit and take an artichoke to lunch. You’ll get all choked up for sure.

As the medical care crisis and medical care arguments struggle on, many customers are looking into supplemental insurance policies to cover the gaps in traditional insurance plans.

Accident Indemnity

Disability Income Protection

Cancer Indemnity

Hospital Protection

Life Insurance

Dental

Long Term Care

How is AFLAC distinct?

-To repay debt and relieve some stress during this period of missed work

Another customer we spoke to fantasies she’d bought an AFLAC supplemental coverage earlier. An AFLAC representative visited the school where she had been teaching and although she had been impressed with goods, she believed she was too young at 26 to desire them.

Some folks point out the frustration which you can’t purchase an AFLAC supplemental insurance policy online that’s common with many insurers but this may truly be a plus because meeting with a representative can assure that you know all the details on the insurance products which you’re purchasing.

Most clients report positive experiences with sales agents and customer service representatives although company administrators who oversee insurance benefits have said that customer service may be inconsistent which appears to be on par in the insurance market.

Great points about AFLAC:

-Portable

-Claim forms are simple and accessible online

-Pays for a few preventative maintenance

-Can not be bought online, must meet with a representative (which may be a favorable)

Overall, AFLAC has turned out to be a trustworthy supplemental insurance provider that provides a number of unique products and has many good points. Potential customers will need to be the final judge on whether the premium prices for your services make AFLAC supplemental insurance a fantastic value for them.

Dolphins!

Water, Swimming, Outdoors, Sea, DolphinWhile they’re certainly playful and funny creatures, there’s more to dolphins than just Flipper. Dolphins are one of the most intelligent animals on earth, and are found in only about every sea around the world. As an elegant way to increase awareness and introduce the masses to the attractiveness and significance of the dolphin, many holiday resorts offer people the chance to go swimming with dolphins to promote environmental conservation.

In a peculiar twist, dolphins are really the descendants of land creatures who evolved into the water, compared to most life forms which evolved out of the water. Scientists are sure of the evolutionary path as dolphins still have little vestigial pelvic bones and leg buds as part of the skeletal structure.

Dolphins are known for their unique social behaviour and acute intelligence. There have been reports of dolphins displaying civilization and learned behaviour, phenomenon considered to be unique to human intellect, by teaching their young to use tools for food hunting and decorations and props for breeding rituals.

However, various sorts of dolphins today are endangered, with various types already gone beyond bringing back. By way of example, a study performed in 2006 was not able to find some of the Yangtze River dolphin, which makes it technically extinct.

The challenging fact to understand is that individuals are responsible in large part for the danger these magnificent creature are now facing. From the spilling of toxic waste and waste into the oceans into runoff containing dangerous pesticides to accidental collisions with boat propellers, lots of the dolphin’s major enemies are the careless byproducts of human life. Regrettably, dolphins are also hunted for food in many regions of the world and are murdered in bulk for commercial sale.

The people of the world now have the capacity to prevent the casual and largely unintentional destruction of these fabulous creatures, and that is the reason why swimming with dolphins is indeed powerful. It’s obvious from that the majority of the ways we hurt dolphins are passive, which makes them unnecessary victims. By offering people an opportunity to spend private time with these great creatures in their natural habitats, hotels are encouraging folks to get to know them and put a face on all the things which live in the sea. And as soon as you’ve been kissed by a dolphin, nuzzled by a dolphin, Centurian services LLC, and ferried around on the back of a dolphin, it’s not easy to ignore the effect we’re having on them. So in case you get a chance, don’t miss the chance to go swimming with dolphins, since it’s a really unique and educational experience. The expectation is that it won’t be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but when our careless treatment of the environment does not stop, unfortunately it may be.

Commands you should teach your dog

Free stock photo of nature, fashion, person, woman

 

The one thing that each and every dog training technique appear to mirror is that positive reinforcement and reward is the best. The second thing that all training methods have in common is that the first step is to teach the dog basic commands. These basic commands will be the foundation of communication between canine and human.

The first command you need to teach is SIT. With a few slight differences, most advice about dog training concur. The easiest way to teach this command is to cause the desired outcome to occur without much effort. For very young puppies, hold their food bowl over and behind their head. Repeat this procedure during every meal time and with treats until he will SIT on command with no food stimulus. Older dogs have better balance so an extra step may need to be used. Some dog training techniques suggest using a leash with no slack to keep your puppy still, then just using a treat held over and behind his head, command SIT. If your dog resists, use your forefinger and thumb to apply pressure just in front of his hip bone or slide your hands over rump and apply pressure as you tuck tail and legs under to induce him to SIT.

The second command you have to train your puppy is NO. This control demands consistency from you, as the trainer, and every member of your household. The NO command have to always be spoken in a sharp guttural tone and independently. Your tone needs to be authoritative sharp and strong to relay your displeasure. Withhold focus as punishment. Consistency is the key to train your dog.

STAY is another command that every dog should know. Incorporate hand signs and put your open palm before dog’s nose. Say STAY and move before your dog to obstruct his forward motion. If he moves, replicate hand sign and STAY command. If he stays, move back alongside him, make him hold his STAY for a couple of seconds, praise and treat. As with every dog training technique, continue to gradually increase increments of distance and hold time with each training lesson. An additional element when training your puppy to STAY is the three D’s. Duration, Distraction, Dead animal removal near me, and Distance. As I just mentioned, it’s important to gradually increase the increments of Duration and Distance but Distraction must be introduced to check your dogs understanding of this command. Make certain to add distraction while training your dog before the distance gets too long. Typical distractions would be someone entering the training area with a toy, another dog walking by, etc..

DOWN command can be taught only after SIT is mastered. It is important to use only the word DOWN. Your dog doesn’t understand variations such as Lay Down. You have to be consistent in training your dog that DOWN only describes laying down. If you wish to teach your dog to get down off of your chair, train OFF as your control. To teach your dog to lay down, first control him to SIT. With a treat, draw your dog to a laying down position by dragging the treat between his legs and moving it forward. As you train your dog every new command, be sure to combine each command so patterns don’t develop and the action of every different control is rewarded when attained.

Teaching your puppy to HEEL makes walks in your neighborhood a pleasant experience. I am sure you have seen or experienced the proprietor that gets walked with their dog. The proprietor is fearful of every approaching human or animal since they have not been trained to HEEL. Your objective is that your puppy will remain close to you on a walk. He will not pull you or become too tough to control with the joys of other dogs or people. A fantastic tip, exercise your dog with play prior to training to HEEL. Work out all excess energy and train your dog in a quiet distraction free area. Start at SIT, use your dogs name and command HEEL. If your dog doesn’t stay with you and darts off, then turn from another direction and repeat control HEEL and dog’s name. Remember to always to praise and treat desired responses.

The last fundamental command that’s a must while starting to train your dog is the control COME. This command seems so simple, after all all dogs want to come to you, right? The issue with training your dog to COME is that owners don’t use it often enough in daily interactions. Your pet will COME when you open the refrigerator door. The command needs to be reinforced by placing your puppy in SIT and STAY, then by changing your location, control COME, and use your dog’s name. Praise and reward with each and every desirable outcome. One very important point to remember is NEVER right or discipline your dog for responding to the COME command. The truth is that when you want your dog to react to COME the most is when his safety is at risk. Your pet has run out and may be at risk of road traffic,. COME returns your dog to the protection of your dwelling. Your fear response will instinctively make you want to fix your dog for exercising. Stay consistent with your training, praise and reward your dog.

This is a really brief summary of training methods and sequences to use while training your dog the fundamental commands. Repetition will be required several times while training. The increase of distance and duration, as well as the introduction of distractions, will also require repetition. Patience and time will have to be committed while training these commands. I think you will realize that if you begin to train your dog with these fundamental commands, you’ll discover the more specialized training will be easier for both you and your dog.

Get your Vitamin D

Vitamin, D3, Bless You, Live, Background

 

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that’s produced when your skin is exposed to the sun.

Quit Smoking

Next they function it in newspaper, put in boxes and sell them for more than 40 a packet… wow those cigarette items have to be great!

Apologies to Jerry Seinfeld for my bad attempt at his type of comedy, but he does such a terrific job of seeing the humor in absurd circumstances.

Nevertheless, it was marketed beautifully by advertising firms, to generations of unsuspecting victims, proclaiming that women who smoked were more glamorous and independent, and guys who smoke were rugged, Dead animal removal near me or sophisticated.

And all along the entrepreneurs won, the cigarette companies won and people who distributed and sold marketed won, but you the smoker were the major loser.

Jerry Seinfeld does good comedy and while trying to make light of smoking could be a little fun, the truth is there isn’t anything funny or comedic about smoking, it’s destroyed and destroyed millions of lives.

Quitting isn’t just the best thing to do it is achievable, when you use hypnosis as your way to stop you have a excellent prospect of quitting, so it is only a matter of picking and committing yourself to caring for yourself.

Eat Breakfast

Free stock photo of food, plate, blur, breakfastThey say ignorance is bliss but there are times when ignorance of people makes me unhappy. 1 such example is when people don’t believe breakfast is important and decided not to include it in their routine. It is said that you should eat like a king for breakfast, queen for lunch and popper for dinner. Unfortunately for a lot of people, for reasons of their own, dinner happens to be the largest breakfast and dinner is the first one to be skipped. I’ve always thought that to a large degree, you are what you eat so that I think food has an important part in your life, particularly the quality of life. That’s among the reasons why I take time and effort not to just prepare decent food but also to write a lot about it so that I spread some consciousness in whatever small way I can. Reason I say it makes me unhappy is because the effects of skipping breakfast might not be seen instantly. But over time an individual will need to deal with the consequences. When some of my friends say they don’t have breakfast I feel bad as they aren’t doing any good for their body. In this column I hope to summarise what I have read and understood about the importance of breakfast and also some simple yet fast breakfast ideas to make it easier for you.
Let Us Examine the impact of having or not having breakfast to better understand why bother with breakfast Weight management – many believe that skipping breakfast so that they reduce calories would help them lose weight. It can’t be further from the truth. When we sleep through the night, our own body slows down, so metabolism slows down. When we have something to eat in the morning, we’re effectively giving the signal to the body the day has started and metabolism should increase. However, those who skip breakfast deny their own body of the signal in order that they feel lethargic as they continue until lunch with slow metabolism. When one feels lethargic and tired, one tends to work less, physically and in turn burns fewer calories. Also, once the body is deprived of food for a very long time, cravings start, particularly sugar cravings. This is when we feel like snacking on a chocolate bar or a massive fat muffin or cakes etc.. This effectively increases the calorie intake. To sum up, a slow metabolism, tired body burning calories and higher calorie/fat snacks efficiently contribute to weight gain rather than weight loss. All of us keep hearing about the many health conditions that may come with being obese, particularly risk of heart ailments and skipping breakfast could possibly lead to becoming overweight. Lowered cognition – studies have stated to have shown that kids who have breakfast fare better in problem solving than children who skip breakfast.
Remember it isn’t only the rest of the body that gets energy from digested food but also the brain. After the mind is low on energy, one can’t expect it to operate effectively. Some studies also show that children who skip breakfast are more likely to have problems focusing and also have issues with memory in comparison with children who have breakfast. Type 2 diabetes – skipping breakfast is thought to increase the chance of developing type 2 diabetes. If a person is already diabetic, it’s even more important to maintain sugar fluctuations low so the body needs to be fed at regular intervals. Diabetes is a condition of the body that’s not especially easy to handle as the complications of diabetes can be quite serious from losing eye sight, heart attacks, having to be amputated. If a person is overweight, the complications get even worse. The effect of diabetes might not be understood immediately but the body will be deteriorating gradually. Keeping the blood sugar in check is totally important when living with diabetes and skipping meals, that also breakfast will be tremendously counter-productive for diabetes control. Menstrual irregularities – a few studies are said to have shown that girls/women who skip breakfast are most likely to have irregular intervals. Bad disposition – low glucose is reportedly responsible for irritability fatigue and fatigue. Some studies show that those who skip breakfast snap at others more readily.
To me the chance of weight gain (and all associated health risks because of being obese) and risk of diabetes alone are enough to make me run for my breakfast. When it comes to kids, it’s extremely important to prepare healthy eating habit at an early stage and therefore, having breakfast is essential. With kids getting less and less playtime and exercise these times it’s even more important for them to eat healthier. There’s absolutely not any point in sending them to school to learn things if they can’t focus and as parents, we will need to give them sufficient support to allow them to learn. Hopefully, by now you’re at least thinking about getting breakfast.
I come from a tamil Brahmin family and Brahmin meal program is very well known because many of them have a enormous mid morning meal, later in the day a tiffin or lighter meal is consumed while dinner occasionally is liquid ingestion or fruits or some cereals, maybe curd rice. Reason I mention that is that though some people criticise them for using a heavy meal that ancient, what modern day dieticians are advising is pretty much similar – have a large breakfast. The meal would usually consist of rice (carbs), dal (protein), vegetables (vitamins and minerals) and ghee (fat) and unless I got it all wrong, this is exactly what makes a balanced meal. At this era, we barely have enough time to make these before we walk out of their doorways to work and neither will our working hours allow such a program. So, what are a few quick breakfast alternatives you could try. Oats porridge – boil a few tbsp of oats in water till it’s done (regular oats is far better than rapid cooking and honestly doesn’t take much time to cook anyway). If you want it sweet, add some milk, honey or sugar or some other sensible sweetener of choice. If you want savory, then add some buttermilk and small salt and consume. In any event, have a banana or another fruit of choice. Breakfast shake – milk shake or sodas make breakfast. Combine a banana sweetened with date syrup or some other natural sweetener (avoid synthetic sweetners or processed sugar) along with some milk. Top with crushed nuts and beverage. Adding oat milk rather than cow’s milk can help reduce fat and calories and also contribute to fiber intake. You could try the same with apple also. You might also use a spoon of wheat germ. Muffin – with a low sugar, bran loaded muffin is a superb way to fill you up for the morning. Top a healthy muffin with berries and eat alongside a glass of juice. Loads of healthy muffin recipes can be found, consider making enough over the weekend itself. I’d say it probably takes about ten minutes to make the muffin batter and about 20 minutes baking time which would be your breakfast sorted for a week! Breakfast sandwich – you can make those with leftovers too. You can use chapattis or pita breads or wholemeal breads and stuff them with leftover sabjis or some other vegetable of choice. This helps me get one of my five daily vegetables also. Peanut butter sandwich is an excellent option also. Toast and legumes – beans also contribute to one of five a day. This alternative is okay if you’ve got enough time to sit down and have your breakfast. Low fat flapjacks – I create my own flapjack that is somewhat more chewy than ordinary ones. I use very little brown sugar include dry fruits and dates syrup to sweeten instead. Believe it or not smallish portions of those oats rich almost no additional fat flapjacks are a excellent start to the day. Multi grain porridge – back home it’s common practice for mothers to produce a multi grain powder. It normally consists or wheat, barley, finger millet, sago, almonds and cardamom for flavouring. An individual can add few heaped spoons of the to water, bring to boil while stirring, add jaggery or sugar and milk. Healthy pancakes – create your own pancake mix by adding either the aforementioned porridge powder or wholewheat powder together with some millet powder. Add mashed banana or pureed berries or apple, if you would like it sweeter, add syrup like dates syrup to produce a batter. I often skip the baking powder or soda bicarb since it inhibits nutrition absorption. You could add small all purpose flour to facilitate flipping the pancake. Bread omelet – beat an egg and then add salt and required vegetables such as tomato, onion, mushroom etc. and make an omelet. Having protein earlier in the day is believed to be better than later. Museli – unite wheat flakes, oat flakes, Dead animal removal near me, rye flakes, barley flakes with a few dry fruits such as raisins, currants, seeds such as pumpkin seeds. Quick French toast – cut couple of bread pieces into four triangles each. Cook both sides and that is a fantastic breakfast on the move.
12. Millet gruel – Millet is usually considered poor man’s food but reality is many men and women working hard physically possess ragi gruel frequently for breakfast. It keeps them complete for long but they are involved in intense work. 1 way of preparing is very similar to multi grain porridge mentioned before. Another technique is to combine it with some buttermilk and let it sit overnight. Next morning add little water if necessary and cook while stirring, until it’s shiny. Season with salt and beverage. Millets are low fat protein sources.
I expect at least one or two of the above options match your taste and time. On weekends you can indulge somewhat more by creating cooked breakfast and several these recipes are available on my site also.
Make healthy decisions for your life, remember, prevention is much better than cure. An individual can skip any meal, but not breakfast no matter whether one is hungry or not. For the other meals you’ll be able to go in accordance with your body, eat when hungry but breakfast is an exception. Do not await the ‘right’ day to begin having breakfast, there’s absolutely no bad time to do the perfect thing. Live long, live happy, live healthy!
