Welcome to my view on things of this world. This is where I get to write
what I want, when I want, about things that interest me. Expect me to
ramble from topic to topic, because that's what I'm going to do. If you
like what you see, feel free to bookmark this site. I'll try my best to
keep it fresh and updated frequently.
National Parks in the United States do charge charge an entrance fee on
this particular day, so if you live nearby one, check it out. This
includes places like Yosemite, so be sure to take advantage of the offer!
Did you know that today is root beer float day? It means that you can go

float! For more information, check out the Root Beer Float Day website.
It's that time again. Time to go out and get your free slurpee at 7-11! If
you haven't already heard about it, it happens every year on the same day.
Yep, July 11th. From 11am to 7pm, you can grab yourself a free small
slurpee drink at just about any 7-11 out there. If a particular store is
not participating in this event, maybe you shouldn't be going to that
store in the first place.
Are you OK with the government tracking your every move, no matter where
you go, and no matter what you do? Did you know that law enforcement has
the ability to capture images of license plates at about 1800 plates per
hour wherever there are cameras spying on you? Check out the complete
story by Michael Robertson HERE.
I admit it. I am a coffee fanatic. I have at least two cups a day, and
I've just now been trying out the Keurig k-cup coffee maker. It's a great
little device. But it has a problem. It's expensive! Those little k-cups
cost about 50 cents a piece if you can find a really good deal. Even at
that, it costs about a dollar a day to get my fix. Certainly not as bad as
stopping off at Starbucks, but it does add up. So, I ventured online and
found a great little device on Amazon. It's called the Ekobrew Elite, and
it's a reusable filter for your Keurig. Put in the ground beans of your
choice and you're good to go. A pound of nice coffee will run about $10,
and you can certainly make more than 20 cups of coffee with it. Maybe
about 50 or so. That comes to about 20 cents per cup. Less than half the
cost of using a new k-cup each time. And you have complete control of your
coffee, which is really nice if it doesn't come in k-cups yet.
Order the Ekobrew Elite Reusable Filter from Amazon HERE.
A massive asteroid nearly 2 miles wide will zip by Earth on Friday (May
31), in a cosmic event that has grabbed the attention of stargazers,
scientists and even White House officials. The asteroid poses no threat of
hitting Earth during the flyby, NASA officials assure.

Ray Harryhausen, a special effects master whose sword-fighting skeletons,
six-tentacled octopus, and other fantastical creations were adored by film
lovers and admired by industry heavyweights, has died. He was 92.
Biographer and longtime friend Tony Dalton confirmed that Harryhausen died
Tuesday at London's Hammersmith Hospital, where the special effects titan
had been receiving treatment for about a week. Dalton said it was too soon
to tell the exact cause of death, but described Harryhausen's passing as
"very gentle and very quiet."
How about a device that will let you control all AA battery powered
devices in your house? It's fairly clever, and seems to work really well.
As long as the device takes AA batteries, replace one with this gadget
(which you load with an AAA battery), and you can turn the powered object
on and off using your bluetooth-enabled smart phone. Pretty neat, eh?
An entrepreneur does a multitude of wonderful things. As a matter of fact,
many people are awestruck with how the entrepreneur's mind functions. In
what way does an entrepreneur make it big? And of the most importance, do
you want to be a successful entrepreneur, too?
Firstly, an effective entrepreneur should have great ideas. You have to do
the research to see if your business concept is plausible. After gathering
all the needed data, you can now decide if you will pursue the business
idea or simply file it and do it at a later date. For example, let.s say
you decide to pursue the concept. The next item that you would have to
focus on is generating the capital needed.
The projects undertaken by entrepreneurs are performed in a careful
manner. Proper research is a very important aspect in determining if a
venture is feasible or not. Saturated and established markets are a big no
for entrepreneurs because their aim is to make more money. With this kind
of market, the business that they are about to put up is suicidal because
of the extreme competition.
The best method for managing stress is through the meditative arts.
Meditation can lead to a state of ultimate happiness. But in this mad, mad
world, many say that they don't have time to meditate. What a strange
paradox! Meditation leads you to happiness, yet you can't find a moment to
become happy? Don't allow stress to get you down. If you have little time
for meditation, consider the use of stress management balls.
Stress management balls are great. They are small, and you can take them
almost anywhere. If you are feeling stress, take one in your hands and
squeeze. Play with it in style. It will take care of your tensions and
concerns. It will give you the diversion you need from the brooding state
of your mind. It's better for you to have something else to do instead of
the useless thinking that starts increasing your stress and tension
When the doors open for Free Comic Book Day -- an annual event that's grown
in stature from a few stores to some 2,000 worldwide -- publishers and
purveyors of tales of heroes and villains will court new readers who,
despite the ease of digital displays, are making time for and spending
money on comics printed on paper.
Retailers say the turnout and scope of the event, which began in 2002, is
giving them and the industry a chance to tout their success by giving away
4.6 million comic books featuring everything from Superman to "The Walking
Dead" to Gilbert Hernandez's "Marble Season." It will be held on Saturday.
Did you know it's possible to be allergic to beer? In a recent study from
Italy, they found a 45-year-old man who was indeed allergic to 36 different
types of beer, and that there were two types he could safely drink.
And the culprit? Usually, it's barley, which is a common ingredient in many
beers. Reactions vary, but you can expect anything from itchy skin to
nausea and headaches.
Unmanned aerial vehicles, popularly referred to as drones, have become
arguably the most buzzed-about, and divisive, technology of the moment.
Some politicians (and a good chunk of the public) see them as tools of a
burgeoning surveillance society; but enthusiastic hobbyists insist the
technology can be useful, cool and fun. While that debate simmers, the
most fearless and impatient influencers of public space have forged ahead
to put drones to use in the world.
I'm referring of course to marketers.
Ars Electronica Futurelab reports that "a squadron of 30 LED-studded
AscTec Hummingbirds hovered above Potters Fields Park near London's Tower
Bridge" over the weekend. But these minidrones weren't there to spy or
intimidate. Instead, they formed the Star Trek badge. It was a promotional
stunt for the forthcoming movie, "Star Trek Into Darkness." Evidently, the
age of drone-vertising has arrived.
Nature's Way Organic Coconut Oil is a great moisturizer if you have
sensitive skin. It's inexpensive but works really well. Try mixing a small
bit with some tea tree oil and put it on your face after showering.
The feeling of this stuff is wonderful and leaves my skin feeling smooth
all day. A friend of mine uses it as well. She used to have very dry skin
and would break out with the worst case of acne almost on a weekly
occurrence. The tea tree and coconut oil have been amazing for her.
Nature's Way Organic Coconut Oil works great as a simple hair conditioner
as well. It has a wonderfully light coconut smell and leaves my hair
conditioned and moisturized without any buildup. It rinses very easily. I
will keep looking for more uses for these oils, I could go on forever how
great they are but I won't! Instead I'll just say for what I've used them
for so far, they've been just great!

Pianists constantly face a problem: how can I instruct
piano technique? We encounter various different ways of playing the piano,
and recognize that even "experts" of piano technique, whether they are
teachers or performers, very often disagree on what are the essential
principles of healthy piano playing. Often, the paradox of the naturally
gifted pianist reveals itself - there are instances of technically facile
performers who are not aware of elements of piano technique, because they
have never had to examine or question them. Often, the mantra from piano
teachers is "Practice, Practice, Practice". Scales, arpeggios, and
technical exercises are prescribed, without acknowledging that an improper
technical or practice approach will not lead to natural facility, and may
in fact, damage it.

Are you struggling with a lot of debt? Do you want to find a way to make
it easier to deal with? What if it were possible to combine all those
different monthly payments into one smaller payment? That's where debt
consolidation loans can assist you, and this article is all about how they
operate and if they are the right course of action for you to consider.
Consider how much simpler life could be if it were possible to have a
single smaller payment every month. Also, consider that your debt could
actually get taken off your plate in a much smaller period of time. This
is all possible, so it's worth considering.
