I have been steadily working towards being in the best shape of my life and I think that I am about ready to try to go to a whole new level. I have been working out with this guy who is a triathlete. He has a personal trainer certificate from this place called the European institute of Fitness. I do not pay him to train me, the two of us just happen to have the same schedule. I have been getting up at the crack of dawn for over a year now. At first it was because I needed to lose a bit of weight, but then I realized that I had to be able to keep it off and that requires a long term commitment. Continue reading
I am very picky about the jewellery I will wear, so my bridesmaids were a bit nervous about how long it would take for me to pick out the bridal jewellery for my big day. They wanted to have input, but they knew better. It is not that I am a bridezilla. I just know what I want, and I am the only one who will know it when I see it. That is what happened when I was on a website and saw Swarovski Elements jewellery sets. I knew as soon as I saw them that I had found the perfect sets for the girls to wear with their bridesmaids gowns.
There were so many nice sets, and that was actually the hardest part. I am usually settling for something that is the best of an average group. With these jewellery sets, I liked all of them so much! I really wanted to get each set, but I knew that they would only be able to wear one. I even considered having each one wear a different one, but I am a stickler for uniformity too. Continue reading
I was looking for a clothing shop down in Bristol the other day. I was down on the Island, which is a very interesting part of the city. It is called the Artspace Lifespace CIC. It is what you would call a self funded arts project, multi use. At any rate I like to go down there and look around and I always take my camera. I ended up hiding from the rain drops in this shop called Dry cry, which you might call a street fashion place. Of course I could criticize the utility of their designs, which would be very easy indeed. However art is some times done for it’s own sake and that is something that you can not necessarily judge for your own self. I am sure that a lot of people like me would have looked at Pablo Picasso side ways back when he was starting out.
It is very easy to be a critic of course. Continue reading
I thought it would be harder for thieves to steal cars when the keyless ones started becoming more popular. I was wrong though. I discovered that it is actually easier for some car thieves because they are quite adept at hacking all kinds of systems. No longer is the average car thief like the ones from even a decade ago. Now, they are computer experts who know how to break into many of the keyless cars being sold today. When I bought my new car, I did a search for keyless theft fix because I had heard about a company that helps to combat this.
They are able to fit immobilisers and alarms to a wide variety of autos, and this helps them from being so easy to break into. That was my main reason for wanting to go there, but I discovered two other things too. Continue reading
I have somehow let myself get horribly out of shape, and I do not think that it is within my capacities to be able to get myself back into better shape on my own. I think that I am going to need help, because I do not have an astounding amount of motivation or willpower when it comes to this sort of thing, and that is always been how I have been. Anyway, so my plan is to hire a personal trainer in Canary Wharf to help to motivate me toward the fitness goals that I am going to set for myself.
I want to make sure that I Have a lot of goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, and then overarching long term goals to work with. That should help me to stay on top of my fintess and make sure that I am working towards good health again. I really did not understand how it is even possible for my fitness to decline so much. I know I stopped paying attention to it,but it is kind of like i just woke up one day and looked in the mirror and was completely shocked. Continue reading
I think my competitive nature is a trait that helps me be successful in business. I have a website that I created many months ago. In its infancy, the website had a pretty low search engine ranking, and I wanted to change this. My goal was to get the website to the number 1 ranking on the 1st page of every major search engine. I did some research on SEO work, and found Pauls website here on my favorite search engine. It’s http://www.freelance-seo.co.uk/white-label-seo-reseller-program/. I learned about Pauls work and hired him to get my website to the top.
Paul was able to give me the necessary keywords that turned my website into one that would climb the ranks. Within a month, my website was the top search result on all the search engines. Continue reading
A small company may not have much difficulty keeping up with complaints or desires of staff. After all at a small mom and pop shop, it is as easy as asking each employee. Once a company starts to grow and take off though, the number of employees can easily get out of hand and be very difficult to manage. After all, most companies are looking towards growth and if orders take off, then hiring tons of staff will be a necessary evil. Instead of trying to find ways to talk to each of them, hiring a consultant for staff surveys can be a great way to stay on top of problems and find out what is going on throughout a company.
Of course the name of the game when it comes to being profitable is efficiency. Continue reading
When I was injured in a car wreck recently, I was surprised when my doctor told me to check out Chiropractors in Devizes. I have long thought that Chiropractors were nothing but scam artists who were attempting to take money from injured people. Much to my surprise, that is nothing but a vile rumor that was started years ago thanks to early chiropractors being involved in some shady deals. Modern day chiropractors can be considered to be some of the most well trained spine doctors that money can buy and often serve as the first step in discovering a solution for pain management.
It’s silly to think that a doctor who is highly capable of helping an individual so much is going to be someone who is actually out to hurt you. My experience with the chiropractors has been nothing but positive. With his help I was able to bring much of the pain I was experiencing in both my neck and my back to manageable levels.

My husband and I love to get each other really unique gifts for our birthdays, Christmas, and other special days like our anniversary. I wanted to get something really neat for my husband for his upcoming 40th birthday, and it did not take me long to figure out what to do for him. He is the adventurous type, so I knew he would like the tandem skydive in London that I had set up for him. He had always joked about wanting to skydive before, but it was nothing that he really seemed interested in following up on.
I decided to do a search online to see if there was a place nearby where he would be able to do this. The closest place was London, which is nearly two hours away. I figured I would just incorporate a trip there into his birthday celebration. When I told him we were going to London to celebrate, he thought it was just for a fancy dinner. Little did he know that he would be jumping out of an airplane within hours of arriving in the city. Everything I read about the tandem jump was fascinating to me too, so I decided that we should both do it. Continue reading
With the Derby being in my home state, the subject of horses, racehorses, racehorse trainers and anything to do with Churchill Downs is kind of an unavoidable topic. When the Derby comes around with the Derby Festival kicking things off to remind us just how close it is, you can’t go anywhere without hearing something about horses. Personally, I know that I make for poor conversation regarding it because I really don’t know much about horse racing. I know more about horses than the average person just from my time spent at camp as a kid – I’ve helped train horses but never for racing.
So when I had the opportunity to go to Thorndale farm and learn more about a hobby that, over the years I have become surprisingly knowledgeable about, I was stoked. Continue reading
It is no secret that today’s society demands the best of everything, as second place seems to be an unacceptable status. This holds true in the medical and cosmetic field as well, because no customer wants to settle for “good enough” when they can get better. Of course as a clinic or business, this same mentality holds true because no company wants to be stuck with subpar results. However, not having the latest and greatest cosmetic laser machines can result in exactly that. The bottom line is that even with a high qualified staff and the best of intentions, a practice can still be greatly limited by its equipment.
Fortunately, the choice to upgrade to these amazing devices is easier than ever. Continue reading

Phra and Bot aka Crookers, The first born and raised in Omegna, a picturesque town of Lake Orta, the second in Milan. Together they are the young italian duo who, for some years now, have been travelling on and on in every continent known to man, setting dance floors and millions of people's eardrums on fire. Let's take a step backward: In 2007 the first overpowering mixtape signed Crookers emerges from the lake's darkness: A deep house and rap based experiment that brakes every sound barrier, slipping into genius. This first challenge doesn't pass unnoticed and throws the duo out to an endless series of guesting in the best italian and european underground clubs. From the beginning, their style is characterized by an apparently impossibile but fully functional musical constellation: street style, rap, house, fidget and trance. In 2008 Crookers' range choice goes off with "Day 'n' Nite", a remix of, at the time unknown, Kid Cudi. The hit enters the U.K. charts at 2# (giving way to Lady Gaga) and guarantees Crookers a place in world's dance Hall of Fame. They are asked to remix for Armand Van Helden and Chemical Brothers, who state, "The Italians are something to look out for". Praises from Black Eyed Peas' Will I Am and Norman Cook, otherwise known as Fat Boy Slim, will soon be added to those of the two londoner fake brothers. Hereafter it's a non stop rising. Interscopes Jimmy Iovine (on his son's request, a fierce fan of the duo) asks them to remix U2, followed by Britney Spears and Lady Gaga & Beyonce who just want Crookers to lay a hand on "Telephone". Finally in 2010 the album, "Tons of Friends". As the title recites it summons up Crookers' friends: Kelis, Wil I Am, Roisin Murphy, Soul Wax, Major Lazer, Sepultura's Igor Cavalera, Rye Rye and many others. Once again Crookers mix at every musical latitude passing through house, dubstep, reggae, rap and melodic grime. "Tons of Friends" takes rap and centrifuges it with Crookers's distinctive filter, achieving to hit both american hip-hop standard-educated ears and those looking for a cutting-edge and electronic sound (i.e. the dubstep track sang by Kelis). To quote Rye Rye herself in "Hip Hop Changed": They say hip hop changed, but you know we still talk that language / it's just another twist in the shit that we bring / hip hop saved my life so I framed it. Crookers make no compromises but can carry away the most popular names of today's musical landscape to the dephts of the underground sound. This way they clear "the eternal fight between commercial music and making sense music" (Marcus Downling – TGRI, Mishka Blogin). 20 tracks, 25 guests. Crookers do have tons of friends.

Internal Sounds, the anticipated new album from The Sadies, will be released September 17 on Yep Roc Records. In advance of the release, the new song "Another Tomorrow Again," which American Songwriter describes as "…the perfect teaser for the album," can be heard here: http://www.americansongwriter.com/2013/07/song-premiere-the-sadies-another-tomorrow-again/. Additionally, the album's lead track, "The First 5 Minutes," can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/outside-music/the-sadies-the-first-5-minutes. In celebration of the album, The Sadies are currently in the midst of a Canadian tour; please see below for a list of dates. Recorded in Toronto, the 11-track album was produced by The Sadies' Dallas Good (guitars, organ, vocals) and mixed by Peter J. Moore. In addition to Good, the album features band members Travis Good (guitars, fiddle, vocals), Sean Dean (bass) and Mike Belitsky (drums). Of the experience, Dallas Good comments, "There was a conscious effort to deliver a finished product that wouldn't suffer from a deadline or budget. We recorded this record over a span of a year, in session for 20-plus days. By the end, we'd spent every dime we had and used up every favor. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn't want that this time." Formed in Toronto in 1994, the band has released 16 studio albums, including 2010's Darker Circles, which the A.V. Club describes as, "…full of strong melodies, beautiful guitars, and the ghosts of a unsettled past" and which Under The Radar praises as, "…twangingly irresistible guitar interplay." Additional recordings include Precious Moments (1998), Pure Diamond Gold (1999), Tremendous Efforts (2001), Stories Often Told (2002), Favourite Colours (2004), In Concert Volume One (2006), Tales of the Rat Fink (2006) and New Seasons (2007). They have also released two albums with Andre Williams (1999's Red Dirt and 2012's Night and Day), an album with Jon Langford (2003's Mayors of the Moon), an album with Neko Case (2004's The Tigers Have Spoken) and an album with John Doe (2009's Country Club). Country Club went on to chart on Billboard's U.S. Country and Indie charts and reached #10 on the U.S. Heatseekers chart.

It is not as though this is some overnight think. In fact I asked this girl out the first time about a year ago I think. I met her at this party that was being thrown to celebrate the opening of a design studio by a decorator in London. At the time I was close with the secretary of this interior designer and this girl was some way or another a friend of hers. That was why she would not go out with me, because she could not tell whether or not her friend was serious about me or not. I had the same problem and that was why I was asking her these sorts of question. In truth that girl hates the both of us now, me for more reason than her friend. That is not to say that I did very much to set her off, but I did do something. The girl merely took my side in the argument, albeit not very strenuously. It dawned on me that this girl was not very stable mentally at some point and I realized that it was foolish to play around with her.
At any rate I am pretty nervous about this girl because it is like a minor league baseball player getting called up to the big leagues. She is not out of my league perhaps, but it is not as though she does not think it and it is certainly not as though my friends do not think that she is out of my league. That is the joke and they are making it out to be a Seth Rogen movie. Of course that is the plot to a lot of movies, but obviously Seth Rogen has made a career out of play the part of the guy who is out of his league.Read Through A Lot More
It is truly rare to find any company or organization that can really claim to be without flaws. The flaws can come in many forms and be found in nearly any level of the company, but that should not be upsetting at all. Many businesses are still plenty profitable or successful despite these flaws, so fixing them is simply a way to improve even further. Of course seeing the problem can be hard to spot on the inside, so consultants are a great way to figure out weaknesses. For example, a leadership assessment can determine a lot about the way a company is being run and whether it is fully optimal or not.
Of course this is not necessarily implying that drastic changes or overhauls need to be made, as it is rare that anything is that problematic. Instead it is about smoothing things out and fixing small issues that can impact productivity in small ways that may add up over time. This is important because listening to a consultant does require a certain level of trust, because you are simply running on faith that your best interest is always their top priority. It is easy for any company to claim they have some quick fixes, but having long term benefits requires true expertise.
This is why sticking with a reputable and experienced company is simply mandatory. If a company gives bad advice that lowers profitability or success rates, then you will be out their fees and facing more harm than good overall. Obviously the idea is to benefit from hiring a consultant, so doing it without the full confidence that this will happen is simply pointless. In the end, even if it costs more to hire a proper consultant this is a much better option than going for a bargain that does not pan out in the long run.Read Through A Lot More
With all of the rumors swirling about a "purge" that is going to happen, or might happen, in certain cities, I have really started to worry more about home protection. I know that the rumors have proved to be hoaxes so far, and it is kind of a messed up type of hoax to propagate. I guess some people enjoy that sort of thing, but it is just twisted in my opinion. Anyway, I am going to try to look into purchasing CCTV systems to help to upgrade the security of my house.
I doubt that a CCTV system will be enough to save my house, in the event that something happens like in the movie, but I think it would make me feel better. There are other reasons why it would be helpful to have such a thing in any case, and it would help to deter normal types of crime, that are not associated with such extreme acts of violence, as what I am talking about right now. I still think it is possible that the "purge" could happen in this country, because the world seems to get crazier each and every day.
I am not sure why that is, but the impression that I get from reading the news, is that the world is not heading in the right direction. I am not sure if anything can be done to change the course of the Earth, but it sure seems like it would be difficult to do so. So I am going to focus on saving my family, and if the world falls apart, then I will want to be able to live on my own, and be as self-sufficient as possible. I have already made some preparations for that possibility, but there is much more to do.Read Through A Lot More
