As we were walking out of Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, I noticed what appears to be two siblings helping their mom walk down the stairs. I thought it was telling of the times and how the roles have been reversed as its time for the younger generation to take care of the one that raised them.
This is one of those pictures you have to look at a few times before you realise just exactly what is going on. When I realised she was riding between carriages on a train my immediate thought was “I’d never do that”. But another part of my mind quickly clicked in and said, “You did it all the time”. Scary!
I love riding on trains and when I lived in the northern suburbs of Wellington, NZ one of the best things about the suburb was that I could ride the train into the city. It was great. It was a completely different feeling than the bus that my then, husband chose to use. But let me be clear, I never rode like this woman in Bangladesh, and always managed to pay my way. That said, at the same time in other areas of my life, I was taking these risks…

Last summer we had the opportunity to go to Lagoon (a local theme park) for a good friends birthday. Because of the nature of all these new fast rides, there weren’t a lot of photos taken during them, but one of the oldest rides there, Is this flying chair ride. Here is a photo of my wife and friends as the ride is spinning up.

Examples of snacks that can be easily stored include jerky, fruit, almonds, protein powder, and protein bars. Don’t forget about life outside the gym. While muscle building is a great goal with plenty of benefits, remember that life goes on. Some who try to build muscle seem to forget about other activities; make time for friends and relatives. Even better, invite some of them to the gym with you. A well-rounded life is a happy life, and you will feel better about building muscle if the rest of your life is in place. Your workout routine always needs goals, so set a new goal as soon as you have achieved an old one. Reaching a goal feels great, and you deserve to feel proud of your accomplishment.

Muscle building is a very interesting activity, but it is one that requires preparation and knowledge to avoid injury. uniquehoodiareviews Don’t just run to the gym thinking that you can learn as you go. Either go together with an experienced friend or do some research beforehand to know what to expect. In order to gain as much muscle as possible it is important for someone to eat multiple small meals throughout the day. The meals need to consist of protein; carbohydrates and good fats if they are going to give the body the fuel it needs to grow muscle and burn fat. Having a spotter when lifting weights is important.

If your training regimen has reached four days weekly, then try to avoid having more than one pair of consecutive down days. Your body will build and recover better with the down days spread out.

You can lose fat while you gain muscle, resulting in a weight that does not change. A better indicator is measuring your body fat. If your weight is holding steady (or even increasing) while your fat levels are dropping – you are gaining muscle.
Now that you’ve read this article, you have had a primer on what it takes to build muscle safely and effectively. Unique Unique Hoodia Australia Take this knowledge and seek even more education online, as you’ll now be able to tell what is true and what is fantasy.

Just like the kite photo I recently posted, this image is out of the ordinary for me — I don’t shoot many abstract or fine art types of photos. During the week I picked up my Canon 5D mkii from being repaired [related sad story below] and yesterday got a chance to fully check it out. I popped my 50mm f/1.4 lens on the body and started plinking. As I sat at our little breakfast table I opened the lens up completely and started shooting through the rails of one of the chair backs. There were a lot of colorful things in the background which were nicely blurred by the wide aperture and close focus distance. I then started shooting while moving the camera up and down, resulting in the image above. I rather like it. The image is straight out of the camera except for cropping.
So the sad…

If you want to get started in a home business, this article is perfect for you. No matter what the reason you have is (being able to work from home, being able to set your own hours, or anything else), you will find great and useful tips on how to make your home business a success.
When working from home with kids around, try setting up a “work station” for your kids. That way, if you must be in the office, your child can be in his office, too. Give him or her tasks to do, such as calling Grandma on a toy phone or filing drawings. Your child will be thrilled to have a work space just like yours, and you can get some much-needed time to get your real work done. Practice your communication techniques to ensure that your home business is as effective as possible. A great deal of your home business will rely on communication whether on the phone, internet, or in person. If you aren’t aware of proper communication practices, you could fail to reach those that you target in your business. Involve your family as a team and play for home business success. Your extroverted spouse might be eager to do cold calls and handle clients. Your daughter may be great for articles and ad copy, while your son could create cool logos, web sites and brochures. Above all, they must have fun.
There are so many pros to starting a home business. Once you figure out that is what you want to do, use the tips from this article to get started. It may take a while to start off, but the rewards will definitely be worth it once you are on your feet.
Self awareness is a major part of personal development. You must pay attention to what you do on a daily basis and what you can and should improve upon. Self awareness is also a wonderful tool to learn more about you. When you become self aware, strengths and faults will begin to surface and you will be forced to reckon with them.
If you still have a table and a fridge full of leftovers from your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, pack them up and deliver them to the local women’s club or homeless shelter, rather than throwing them out. You will feel better inside and can easily brighten someone’s day with delicious foods and desserts. Try to make this a habit that is not necessarily limited to major holidays, whether you deliver food once per week or once per month. Try cutting down on the amount of caffeine that you consume on a daily basis. Many times it can negatively affect your sleeping habits by causing issue like insomnia. For some people, caffeine can cause headaches and various digestion problems. Do your best to cut down on it every day to see if you feel better.
Replace an old habit with a new one. Toss out the negative and actively introduce and reinforce the positive. If you normally smoke when you are on a business call, start doodling instead. Enroll in an after work aerobics class to dissuade yourself from joining your co-workers at the corner bar. A good tip for personal development is to think before you speak. Writers always proofread what the write, and people should proofread their thoughts before they say them out loud. This will allow you to reflect on your thoughts and give you a better understanding of how your really feel.
A really great way to be self aware is to document each and every day. Always keep a journal or notepad on you and write about what, in detail, has happened throughout that day. The more often you write, the more accurate your account will be. Look back and read over the diary often; things to be proud of or even ashamed of will begin to stand out over time. Work on what you don’t like and in the end you will be happy about your new attitude.
First off, let me go on record before any haters come out, I’m extremely against child abuse. Those that do should be punished not just by being locked up, but getting the shit beat out of them in return so they know how it feels.
But with that said, there is a difference between beating your child and holding them accountable for their actions. Lessons are not learned sitting in a corner for 5 minutes or taking away their cell phone (oh horrors of all horrors)
Yes, many kids turn out awesome with very little discipline. Great parents? Possibly. Great genes? Maybe. Lucky? Definitely.
However, I’m noticing more and more how kids are allowed to run around destroying things with no accountability. They are allowed to talk back with barely a peep in return. The mouth’s on some of them is amazing. Hard to believe some of them are only 9 or 10…

For the benefit of those who are reading this blog for the first time, we had earlier decided to give ourselves another reason to look forward to Fridays 🙂 A holiday every Friday! Not exactly a real vacation every Friday but more of a photo re-cap of a trip we or either one of us have taken in order to re-live our past travels and all the related memories of each trip.
Today, we head to Durbuy. Wait, Durbuy, where? Durbuy is a town located in the French-speaking southern region of Belgium (otherwise known as Wallonia) about 95 kilometres (59 miles) from Brussels, the capital city of Belgium and 33 kilometres (20 miles) from Liege. Its ‘claim to fame’ is its reputation as the smallest town on earth (le plus petite ville du monde) though with a surface area of 157,5 km² and about 11,000 habitants…
