Best Extensions for Curly Hair

Prom is coming up in the near future, and to be honest with you all, it is something that I have looked forward to for a long time. I am not sure what I am going to wear, or anything like that yet, but I am happy knowing that I am going to be going to the prom with an awesome guy. That is all that really matters, but I do need to take care of some things. Mostly, I need to figure out some kinky curly hair extensions to buy to wear when I go to the dance, because I can’t go with my hair the way that it looks right now.

The Right Energy Company for My Business

When I was working out of my home, I thought that business was great. It was not until I secured a major contract that I finally knew what success felt like. It did mean that I had to finally close up shop at home and get a business office with enough space to house at least a dozen other workers. It also meant that I would need to study different things, such as commercial energy rates, since I wanted everything to be just right with this new venture.

We Signed Up with Time Warner Cable Because of Their Great Movie and TV Channel Lineup

My wife and I have found that we just do not go out to movie theaters as much as we used to. We really prefer to make a nice dinner at home and watch a movie or two. Popcorn at a theater cannot beat a homemade meal made by my wife. In the past, we often stopped in at local video stores to grab a video on the weekend, but that stopped when most video rental stores in our area closed down. Recently, we started looking into Time Warner Cable and another company in our area to see what was available.

Movies have always been a big deal in our home. When you have a hard day at work and life gets tough, it really is nice to sit with your spouse and enjoy a movie, smiles, laughter, etc. This means that whichever cable provider we decided to go through needed to have a great set of movie channels, and we also wanted a nice number of channels that would allow us to order movies whenever we wanted to.

Choose from Architects, Location or Any Other Criteria for Your Condo in Singapore

Renting or buying a condo can be a stressful, tiring and complicated process – looking for the most value possible for your money, while trying to fulfill the amenities and conveniences that you desire.

With the process already complicated enough, completing your search for the right condo in your area can be a time consuming and drawn out affair – something that renters and buyers are always looking to avoid.

We’ve built a wish-list at http://www.condogallery.com.sg of what to look for when buying or renting a condo – our complete guide to your search for the perfect condo and make the search a breeze for you.

Location, Location, Location

Something so obvious, yet often overlooked by many renters who are too focused on the bottom line. Do you mind the big city buzz? Are you looking for a more slow-paced, relaxed life style? How long is your commute? All of these are great questions to ask yourself, as you can always change the inside of your condo – but you can’t change the location once you’ve already signed on the dotted line.

Riding in Style Through Toronto

There is little doubt that limousines provide a great way to impress people, whether you are aiming to get the attention of strangers or want to look good on a special date. The bottom line is that limos have become synonymous with important and rich, since those are usually the type of people who can justify and afford riding around them. Of course just getting a limo for one night does not cost the same as having one on a permanent basis, so using one on a special occasion is realistic. Paradise Toronto Limo specializes in helping people with exactly this and making sure that even unexperienced users have a great time.

The idea is that anyone who is hiring a limo is looking to impress people, including the customers. This means that every minor detail and interaction must be perfect or the entire process can simply be ruined. Whether you are talking about a driver with a bad attitude or a vehicle that is not perfectly clean, any problem can simply make the entire thing feel pointless and like a total waste of money. Of course money is a big deal too, but luckily this company has done their best to keep prices reasonable and very competitive compared to most options on the market.

The money that they do collect goes towards maintaining an impressive fleet and the highest quality drivers. Their cars range from huge SUV’s to basic traditional limos, but there is really something for everyone. If you want a traditional black car or white car you can hire that, but people looking for something special can get a pink SUV or an entire party bus. With capabilities of holding up to 40 people, the sky is really the limit for fun and exciting transportation with these guys.

Best New Japanese Drama Shows

I guess that you could say that I am pretty into Japanese culture. I have been for the past few years, ever since I first took a trip to the country and stayed there for a couple of weeks. I pretty much fell in love with it, and I am glad that I got to have the chance to stay there. I would like to go back again. Recently, I have been indulging myself on Jdrama which is a shortened name for Japanese drama shows, and I find them to be pretty addictive.

I just finished watching the third series of such shows that I have seen, and it is probably the best one that I have watched so far. I am not sure how many other good ones there are out there, but if there are more of the quality of the last one that I watched, then I am going to be pretty excited.

The problem is that i do not really have the time to watch all of this television. I have a pretty busy lifestyle, and usually the only time I have to watch them, is before I go to sleep at night. Unfortunately, I have a tendency to stay up late and watch more episodes than I should when I do that. I guess I should figure out some other time to watch them.

I also have the issue that I am not sure which series to watch now that I have finished the last one. I have a couple other ones downloaded, but I want to search around and see which shows are popular. I wish I had someone to recommend other shows to me, because that would be pretty helpful at this point. Maybe I can talk to someone who knows more about these shows.

When Mom Was Diagnosed with Dementia

When my mom was first diagnosed with dementia, she made me promise to not put her into a nursing home except as a very last resort. That was an easy promise to make because I wanted the same thing. She lived at home for about another year, then we decided the best thing was for her to move in with me. My husband and I both work, but one of us can usually be home with her for the most part. We had also looked into dementia care in Queens for people who live at home still, and we were able to find an agency that will come to our home to give Mom the specialized care that she needs.

While we can provide her with a safe place to live, good food to eat, clean laundry and companionship, there are other things that are just too hard for us to provide. While we have read a lot about dementia, we are still not professionals or experts in the field.

I Just Started on a New Job

I just started on a new job this week and I am sort of hoping it does not get much worse than it has been so far. Of course I am working for a place that does roof repair and roof installation in NYC. You are lucky when you do not come dead tired it seems, especially me since they are using me as sort of a mule. I am in with this crew of about half a dozen guys and all of the other guys have a good idea of what they are doing. Since I do not know what I am going to do they have me to do the job of a mule more or less at times.

The Roof of the Church Started Leaking

Bill and I were expecting that this was going to start happening and we have already called up two or three contractors who we need to give us quotes on the job. I spent the morning with a guy who does commercial roof repair in Middlesex county NJ. It is not like we expect it to be easy for us to get the money, because even if there is water coming through the roof there are going to be people who do not want to pay for this. I am pretty sure that no one is going to like it a bit when we figure out what this is going to cost.

Surefire Techniques For Finding Acid Reflux Success Now

Acid reflux disease can be aggravated by stress. Your stomach produces more acids when you feel stressed. Find a relaxing activity to pass the time after every meal. This could range from meditation to something as simple as watching TV.

Don’t eat food with a ton of fat. Reduce or eliminate fast foods, fried foods and marbled red meats. Get in the habit of checking all food labels to see the nutrition content and the amount of fat it contains.

Once you are finished eating, resist the urge to lay down or sit too still. Food will settle and perhaps cause you to experience regurgitation, or acid coming up. Instead, stay upright while moving around to let your food digest properly.

You should apply the tips you just read to eliminate acid reflux for good. Acid reflux is not a problem you want to deal with! Instead, you want to remove it from your life so that you can enjoy everything that happens.

People describe acid reflux with nasty adjectives, such as burning, irritating and intense. Those who have acid reflux, or once had it, realize just how terrible it is. However, acid reflux can be managed. In this article, we will present some of those methods.

Go seek the care of a doctor right away if you notice you have bloody stool or if you’re vomiting blood. This is indicative of bigger issues than simple acid reflux. There could be a quick fix for your condition if it is something different than acid reflux. Decrease your consumption of spicy foods, especially in the evening hours. Among the foods to avoid are peppers of all kinds, especially jalapeno peppers and Mexican food in general. Consuming spicy foods can not only spark acid reflux, but can dry out your skin and cause indigestion, adding to your level of discomfort.

There are many medications that are available if you suffer from acid reflux. Thankfully, you will find a wide variety of medications over the counter along with ones which require a prescription. Talk to your doctor to get a medication prescribed. Do not take someone else’s prescription. Maintaining a healthy body weight reduces your acid reflux symptoms. Your esophageal sphincter relaxes whenever excess body fat accumulates, especially on your midsection. By reducing your weight you can reverse this process, which will greatly reduce your symptoms.

Avoid reclining after eating. When laying in a prone position, it is more difficult to digest your food. Keeping yourself upright can help you keep the acid out of your esophagus.

Mucous in the stomach can increase by using a supplement called slippery elm. This guards the stomach against acid buildup from within. Some folks take a couple tablespoons of it in water each night before going to bed.

Is your acid reflux causing you great pain and discomfort? Do you want to say goodbye to its symptoms once and for all? Are you seeking thorough and knowledgeable information to help you? The following advice can help you reduce the inflammation associated with acid reflux.

      So I got my hands on some raw, unprocessed Hubble Space Telescope data. Suffice to say that theyve got a slight leg up on my efforts from light-polluted Toronto.

      Wait, you can download Hubble data?

      Yup! For those not aware, there is a publicly-accessible Hubble Legacy Archive (hla.stsci.edu/hlaview.html#), which is a collaboration between the NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre. Very kind of them to provide it!

      Trick is, all the data is pretty raw. Its not only shared for pretty pictures, but for science, which means scientists dont want it "cleaned up" as that would affect the datas integrity for research.

      That means its full of the kind of weirdness that old sensors display, such as noise, gradients, mosaic issues, and CCD chip defects. It comes in single B&W bands, and you get to have at it, and see what you can come up with.

      Makes for lovely pictures, is great practice for my own image data, and humbles the hell out of my own hilariously puny earth-bound imaging.

    2. Galaxies Collide in the Antennae Galaxies (NASA, Chandra, Hubble, Spitzer, 08/05/10)
      galaxy
      Image by NASAs Marshall Space Flight Center
      A beautiful new image of two colliding galaxies has been released by NASAs Great Observatories. The Antennae galaxies, located about 62 million light years from Earth, are shown in this composite image from the Chandra X-ray Observatory (blue), the Hubble Space Telescope (gold), and the Spitzer Space Telescope (red).

      The collision, which began more than 100 million years ago and is still occurring, has triggered the formation of millions of stars in clouds of dusts and gas in the galaxies. The most massive of these young stars have already sped through their evolution in a few million years and exploded as supernovas.

      The X-ray image from Chandra shows huge clouds of hot, interstellar gas that have been injected with rich deposits of elements from supernova explosions. This enriched gas, which includes elements such as oxygen, iron, magnesium and silicon, will be incorporated into new generations of stars and planets. The bright, point-like sources in the image are produced by material falling onto black holes and neutron stars that are remnants of the massive stars. Some of these black holes may have masses that are almost one hundred times that of the Sun.

      The Spitzer data show infrared light from warm dust clouds that have been heated by newborn stars, with the brightest clouds lying in the overlap region between the two galaxies. The Hubble data reveal old stars in red, filaments of dust in brown and star-forming regions in yellow and white. Many of the fainter objects in the optical image are clusters containing thousands of stars.

      The Antennae galaxies take their name from the long antenna-like "arms," seen in wide-angle views of the system. These features were produced by tidal forces generated in the collision.

    3. Galaxy Collision in Action (NASA, Chandra, 7/09/09)
      galaxy
      Image by NASAs Marshall Space Flight Center
      This beautiful image gives a new look at Stephans Quintet, a compact group of galaxies discovered about 130 years ago and located about 280 million light years from Earth. The curved, light blue ridge running down the center of the image shows X-ray data from the Chandra X-ray Observatory. Four of the galaxies in the group are visible in the optical image (yellow, red, white and blue) from the Canada-France- Hawaii Telescope. A labeled version identifies these galaxies (NGC 7317, NGC 7318a, NGC 7318b and NGC 7319) as well as a prominent foreground galaxy (NGC 7320) that is not a member of the group. The galaxy NGC 7318b is passing through the core of galaxies at almost 2 million miles per hour, and is thought to be causing the ridge of X- ray emission by generating a shock wave that heats the gas.

      Additional heating by supernova explosions and stellar winds has also probably taken place in Stephans Quintet. A larger halo of X-ray emission — not shown here — detected by ESAs XMM-Newton could be evidence of shock-heating by previous collisions between galaxies in this group. Some of the X-ray emission is likely also caused by binary systems containing massive stars that are losing material to neutron stars or black holes.

      Stephans Quintet provides a rare opportunity to observe a galaxy group in the process of evolving from an X-ray faint system dominated by spiral galaxies to a more developed system dominated by elliptical galaxies and bright X-ray emission. Being able to witness the dramatic effect of collisions in causing this evolution is important for increasing our understanding of the origins of the hot, X-ray bright halos of gas in groups of galaxies.

      Stephans Quintet shows an additional sign of complex interactions in the past, notably the long tails visible in the optical image. These features were probably caused by one or more passages through the galaxy group by NGC 7317.

    Read through this – Eating Right Can Only Lead To Good Things

    Nutrition is important to everyone’s health. It is more than just a means of sustaining the body. What you eat can make you feel better or worse. Healthy nutrition can make your body feel better. The better you feel, the more apt you are to take better care of yourself. There are many ways that you can make substitutions with dairy ingredients. Using dairy products that are lower in fat will help you be healthier. Replace sour cream with Greek yogurt for a dip that is low in fat and high in protein. Instead of cream, you can also use evaporated milk, which has no fat. Ricotta cheese is a healthier replacement for cream cheese. These changes will not hurt the taste, just their negative effects.

    To get well sooner after being sick, eat anything with good levels of zinc. Zinc helps boost the immune system which helps you recover quicker and protects from future illness. Some good sources of zinc are wheat germ, strawberries, pumpkin seeds, and peaches. These foods also have important antioxidants. Read as much as you can about nutrition as you start to change your diet. Half of the problem with people who eat poorly is misinformation. When you understand just how bad sugar is for your organism you will start to naturally avoid it and gravitate towards healthier options in your diet. When considering a diet that provides an adequate nutrition level, be sure to cut down the amount of microwave style dinners that you consume. The reason is that such items often contain excessive quantities of sugar and fat. To help yourself feel great, dedicate a portion of your time each day to cooking fresh vegetables and meat. Include foods that are rich in Vitamins A and C in your diet. Vitamins A and C have antioxidant properties, which are a critical part of human nutrition. Antioxidants work to counteract free radicals, which damage cells and boost your risk of disease. Vitamin A can be found in different greens and carrots. Vitamin C can be found in most vegetables and fruits, such as citrus fruits, broccoli and potatoes.

    Aim to consume numerous types of protein every single week. You can choose from options like seafood, poultry without skin and lean meats. Eat a lot of eggs as well. Recent studies have demonstrated that a single egg each day does not adversely impact an individual’s health. Be sure to enjoy a meatless day once weekly. Use seeds, peanut butter, peas, or beans instead. When working to select the most nutritious foods, choose those nearest their natural form. The best choice is fresh, organic foods, but anything that can reduce the amount of cooking or chemicals in your food will be good for your body. Just because you are trying to lower your cholesterol and have a more nutritious diet does not mean that you have to sacrifice taste. If you love Italian food, lasagna is still on the menu–just make a few adjustments. Use whole-grain noodles and low-fat cheese only. Sneak in some spinach and replace ground beef with ground turkey. By making these slight changes, the dish becomes much more heart-healthy. You will want to consider pesticides and their effect on your food. They are generally portrayed as detrimental. But if you talk with farmers, you may come to a more nuanced view. For instance, you may hear that some fungicides are necessary; that a healthy crop cannot be produced without them, and that none of the chemical is retained on the produce you buy.

    When you are out traveling the globe, take some time to sample the local food. If you are frightened by the prospect of eating something that you could find disgusting to your palate, stick to mainstream fare. You should be able to easily avoid the mystery meals, when you do this. As you can see, good nutrition is easy to integrate into your daily meals, ensuring that you have the vitamins and minerals your body craves. Take care of yourself today and in the years to come by making nutritious consumption a regular part of your routine. You deserve the best nutrition every day.

    Many people do not consider their alcohol consumption in reference to their nutrition. One night of heavy drinking can erase a weeks worth of hard work. A gin and tonic contains over 140 calories, which can set you back a lot. If you drink a few of these, it’s like eating a large meal. Moderation is the key.

      Cooking Tips To Help Save You Time

      Has it ever seemed like you were wasting food when you threw away fruits that were moldy? Ever thought if you could just pick out the mold and salvage the fruit? No, it’s not okay to remove the moldy parts. No healthy method of saving any fruit that is partly rotted exists. Throw this fruit away because of the deep mold growth which you cannot see, and it would make you sick if you ate it.

      Many important nutrients are removed when vegetables are cooked in lengthy processes like boiling. To retain the healthy nutrients, quickly steam or sauté your vegetables, or even better, eat them raw. If you make sauce, freeze it into ice cubs to use later on. For a quick and easy sauce on another night, simply remove as many cubes as you need and reheat in a pan. The sauce will be very edible after it comes out of the trays.

      Use a baking potato with thick skin to get a good, firm shell when making potato skins or twice baked potatoes. Red or new potatoes have too thin of a skin to hold the filling.

      Always properly measure cooking oil. To lower the quantity of fat you use when cooking, see to it that you measure the oil you are using, as opposed to just pouring it into the pan from the bottle. Doing this lets you be very mindful of just how much oil you are actually using in your cooking. Prepare as much as you can ahead of time. You can often prepare ingredients for upcoming meals a day or two in advance. In some cases, the longer preparation times can make some very flavorful creations in the end. After you experience the benefits of preparing in advance, you may well make it your standard practice. Oil should already be hot by the time it touches the food, so allow it to heat at the side beforehand. This will enhance the flavors of the food when you’re done cooking.

      Try different liquids in recipes calling for water or milk to add some new flavors to your meals. Broth is a great substitute for water, and milk adds delicious flavor and extra nutrition to soups and stews. Use yogurt, buttermilk or sour cream in place of milk. A good method for increasing your nutritional intake is by increasing the amount of liquids you drink throughout the day. If you are faced with cooking a meal for someone who you simply must impress, show some restraint when mixing things up in the kitchen. While it is okay to cook with a new or uncommon ingredient or to use a brand new recipe, it is not a good idea to risk it by attempting both. Make sure that you take care with the cooking time for a perfectly baked cake. Though recommended cooking times are a great guideline for novice cake bakers, they can be misleading, because factors such as elevation can impact the actual cook time of the cake. A tried and true method is to insert a toothpick in the center of the cake. The cake will be done when the toothpick comes out without any batter attached; if it doesn’t, bake it longer.

      After purchasing fruits that are not quite ripe, store them in a plastic bag that is perforated with holes. As a fruit becomes ripe, it puts off ethylene gasses. When they are placed in a perforated bag, the air can circulate, which ensures the ethylene gas is absorbed, so the fruit retains its great taste.

      Perhaps the easiest way to add new flavors and shake up your regular dishes is to experiment with different sauces and seasonings. With just a few changes to the spice blend, or marinade, you can completely transform an old favorite. You can easily find exotic spices and sauces at your local ethnic store.

      Oily dishes that spatter all over your microwave can be heated more cleanly in an oven. Because microwaves have intense heat, oil separates from other ingredients because it heats faster. However, if you bake the dish, it will be heated evenly, keeping its ingredients and taste intact.

      Here are some new tricks to try with oysters. There are many ways to prepare oysters besides eating them raw. Place the opened oysters into their shells onto a broiler pan, cover the oysters with a little amount of cream. Grate Parmesan cheese and fresh pepper and sprinkle it over the top of the oysters. Broil until bubbling. Another great way to cook the oysters is to saute them. After covering them in seasoned flour, you can fry them up in butter until they come out golden and crispy. You can also bake oysters while in their shells. If you bake oysters put butter and breadcrumbs on each oyster and bake them in the oven at about 425 degrees for about five minutes. Once the juices are sizzling away, serve hot with crunchy, toasted baguette bread. You can make dried tomatoes yourself. Drying them is easy – simply cut Roma tomatoes in half, or cut larger tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Put the tomato on a rack and rub them with salt. Then place that on a baking sheet and dry them in an oven that is 190 degrees for 10 hours. You can store your dried tomatoes in your freezer. You can pack dried tomatoes in a jar stuffed with organic olive oil and your favorite freshly cut herbs. Place in the refrigerator and consume within two weeks.

        The company also showcases the new Apollo high-speed intermittent vertical form-fill-seal machine rated at speeds of up to 150 bags per minute. Both machines are based on the companys next generation servo motion control platform, which debuted at Pack Expo 2013 with the introduction of the Metis intermittent/continuous motion form-fill-seal machine. The machines in this new family feature small footprint to conserve floor space, high speed for greater throughput, Beckhoff PC architecture for advanced servo motion control, and PackML compatibility for fast start up and ease of operation.

        The Morpheus is designed for films requiring higher dwell time in order to create a perfect seal. The machine provides manufacturers with complete control of dwell time regardless of speed. One of the most unique features of the new machine is that it accommodates such a wide range of package widths one machine, in effect, doing the work normally required of two. Advanced engineering is responsible for the distinctive sealing jaw that can accommodate high-speeds, a range of width sizes, and longer dwell times. The space saving 36-inch wide frame is a plus for any packaging room.

        The new Apollo form-fill-seal machine comes in the same 36-inch wide frame as the Morpheus. The intermittent-motion Apollo has a rated throughput of up to 150 bags per minute and accommodates films that do not require higher dwell times to properly seal. It produces bags from 2 to 11 inches wide.

        The New Matrix Platform for Next Generation Form-Fill-Seal Machines

        In the design of the new platform, Matrix engineers compared a number of control hardware and software solutions. A Beckhoff PC based solution out-performed the others in terms of high-speed, precise motion control. This PC-based control system ensures off-the-shelf availability of PC hardware and ever increasing processing power as the PC industry progresses. The system features the open EtherCAT communication network for effective communications with other machines and business systems.

        The control architecture is PackML compliant, which speeds up system integration and operator training as well as facilitating consistency in operation across PackML compliant machines. A 15-inch operator interface offers capabilities similar to a tablet computer, allowing operators through touch and swipe actions to call up the screen most helpful to them and to have several screens open at one time. The HMIs capabilities are designed to aid operators in maintaining high overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and quality packaging.

        Vacuum pull belts improve performance. This upgraded handling of a variety of films offers marketers greater packaging options and is a hallmark of the new platform. Tool-less changeover simplifies operation and helps increase uptime. The machines open design facilitates fast cleaning.

        Solid Tips For First Time Car Shoppers

        Maintain flexibility when car shopping. Generally, you will find good vehicles made by big-name companies. Ford, Honda, and Toyota will all have compact cars, SUVs, and trucks that are very comparable. If you do some shopping by comparison, you may find a car that you like even better.

        Keep in mind that a lower monthly payment doesn’t mean that the car is costing you any less. This is a tactic salesmen try to use, and it may not be a good one for you. Typically this means just some changes in your loan. The salesperson is still going to get the same commission. Only buy a used vehicle that comes with proof of proper maintenance. A car that has not been properly maintained can cause major expenses later on. If there is no proof of this, you may want to try a different dealership. Do not go to a dealership before doing some research on it. Do some research to find out how current customers feel about the service. Give the department a call and ask for advice you’ve looked up the answer to and test them. Choose a knowledgeable dealer and this can help ensure happiness.

        Try to get all of the prices possible for the car that you want. The prices may even vary based on where you’re shopping. This will allow you to get the most for your money. Purchasing a new car comes with all different kinds of emotions. It is important to be armed with knowledge to get a positive experience with car shopping. Apply what you’ve just learned, and stand ready to negotiate your way into your new car. Consider checking out local auto shows to find out what’s available. Car shows are a great chance to compare a number of different models against each other, all in one place. You will also have the opportunity to speak with knowledgeable people. You should be able to walk out of an auto show with a good idea of the cars you’d like to look into further.

        Look online for prices nearby as well as in the city where you live. You may be able to find a cheaper price in another city because often, different zip codes have different prices. Researching price trends online can give you information about which city will offer the lowest price. Do you feel better about the car buying process? Hopefully, you do. The article you’ve just read can really help. Don’t feel confused or baffled by the dealer. You now know what you need to do to take control to find the deal that works best for you.

        Avoid shopping for a car by yourself if you feel like a pushover. Have a friend or family member go with you to assist in asking the important questions and negotiating a price. Tell your companion your priorities and budget goals in advance of your trip.

        If you’re buying a vehicle and you’ve got the credit to receive that bank-offered interest rate, do it! This helps to save a lot of money in the long run for your purchase. You are likely going to get charged minimal interest by a bank. Look for deals online. You can save a lot of money by doing online research. After you find a great deal on the car of your dreams, you can visit the dealer and make your purchase. If the dealership is close by, try going to save more money.

        You should take your mechanic on the test drive. If you are purchasing a vehicle that has new features on it, you should get familiar with them before buying. Therefore, call the dealership and ask if you can tech drive a car. Whenever you plan on making your next car purchase, keep all of this information in mind. By implementing the tips in this article, you’re going to have a much easier time shopping for a car. Keep this article with you so that you can refer back to it as needed.

        Read before you sign. Before you sign the contract, you should go over it very carefully from beginning to end. The document binds you once it is signed. If you do not want to read it when you’re in the dealership, ask them if you can bring it home to read it. If your salesman does not want to let you take the contract home, there is more than likely some hidden clause they do not want you to find out about.

            Well, its been a couple of months since my last upload- still frustrated and annoyed with the new format, as my internet is so slow where I live, it makes looking at the new Flickr too difficult, but I thought Id try and post some stuff anyway.

            Somehow, the other day, as I was hunting around Shapwick Heath, I was lucky enough to get two mites to stay still for a fifteen photo stack. I have no idea why they did, as just getting one mite to stop running is near impossible. But there we go. Well chuffed. If you look at the close up in the comments, you can see the bigger one is actually standing on cobwebs.
            The hole the mites are standing in and on is an air bubble in a rotten piece of concrete…

            And this is the first Flickr outing for my new camera too, so I have my old 5D mark ii for sale, if anyones interested? Ill do a good deal on it if any of my contacts want to buy it! Just get in touch.
            As a footnote, if anyone is considering getting Lightroom, or upgrading, Lightroom 5 is finally almost worth the money! A nice bit of kit.

          2. A very cool mite! Parasitengona, prob. Erythaeidae sp.

            Edit. The photo was sent to Owen Seeman, a Tasmanian mite expert and apart from supplying the rough ID, he also pointed out that the other, tiny mite is actually a mite larva, quite possibly, and funnily enough, the larval form of the same species. This is because the larvae of this group, including Trombiculidae, or chigger mites prey on insects and arachnids. So now you know.

            Unbelievably, this is a mite, just over 1.5mm big, and Ive never seen anything like it before! This was found out on a millipede and springtail hunt the other day near Table mountain in Tasmania with a lovely bloke called Bob Mesibov, Tasmanias millipede expert. He found it, actually. And my god, he knows his leaf litter species. Fabulous. A fauna and flora encyclopedia on legs. He found a new millipede species that day too.

            This is a 15 photo stack, and really worth looking at in Large, ( click on Download/All sizes) to see the detail and shoddy stacking, as it was moving its legs…

            Theres a smaller mite attached below the eye, which is kind of cool.

            As Jonathan Swift wrote….
            "So, naturalists observe, a flea
            Has smaller fleas that on him prey;
            And these have smaller still to bite em,
            And so proceed ad infinitum."

            And again with the stripy legs. Arthropods are obsessed with them over here.

          Tips And Tricks For Making Retirement Even Better

          Don’t waste that extra money. Just because you’ve got a few bucks left doesn’t mean you should waste it at the gas station. Take those few dollars extra you have here and there and stash them in your retirement plan. They’ll grow into more and more dollars over time and you’ll be glad that you did. If you don’t think you’re going to have enough money to retire, don’t retire. If you can stay at work for an extra year, you’ll find your government pension increases, and the same goes for your employer pension plan. You often can’t work past 70, but those 5 years will really help.

          If your employer offers a pension plan, find out if you’re covered under the plan. If you are covered, it is important that you understand how the plans work. You should know what happens to your benefits if you change jobs. Also, if your spouse’s employer offers a plan, learn what benefits you are entitled to.

          Does the thought of retirement terrify you now, because you never began saving for it when you should have? The truth is that it is not ever too late to get started. View your financial situation to figure out what you are able to save every month. If it’s not much, don’t worry. Having something trumps having nothing, and by starting now, you can build a surprising amount. Begin contributing into an IRA. You can contribute up to $5,500 a year up until the age of 50. Once you reach 50 years old, you can contribute an additional $1,000 per year. Most IRA contributions are tax deductible which can help lessen your tax burden each year you contribute. Social Security should never be considered as a sole means of funding your retirement. Although they are financially helpful, most people are not able to live on this limited income these days. These benefits will not even be half of what you have previously earned.

          Have a plan for traveling during retirement, or you’re probably going to regret it! Traveling is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend your time, but it gets awfully expensive. Have a financial plan that allows you to see the sights you’ve always wanted, and avoid going overboard. You don’t want to come home to an empty bank account! In conclusion, all working adults should plan for their retirement, no matter where their age. This ensures that retirement goes well and the person can enjoy their older years. Now that you have read the above piece, all you have to do is put the advice to use and enjoy yourself! Find out what your benefits from the Social Security Administration will be. Though they will mail you an update each year, you can also go online to obtain this information at any time. This will give you a good idea of how much you will receive when you do retire. Retirement is something a lot of people dream of while they’re working. This doesn’t just have to be a dream, however. You can retire if you plan for it early and know what you’re doing with it. Take your time and use what is outlined below for some help with this.

          Open an IRA to increase your savings for retirement. This can be beneficial as there are many tax benefits, and is another way to lock in money when retirement comes. This retirement account does not charge you taxes if you were to take money out of it after you turn 60.

          You can automate your savings! Most things today can be automated and your retirement savings are the same way. Automated options help you make those investments when you just seem to forget. This will allow your nest egg to start growing without you wasting any time thinking about it. This is a great idea for any smart saver. Now, you are aware of some necessary parts of your retirement plan. If you did not take notes, you may want to bookmark this page. Come back to it frequently as you make your plans. The more prepared you are, the more you can enjoy your retirement and the years leading up to it.
