Started to Plan the Lake Cottage

I am going to do some home work before I start on the house. For now I am thinking that I might clear off a little part of the land and pave a little pad on which to park a camper trailer. That is not ideal, but a camper trailer is adequate for what I have in mind. I would have electricity hooked up to it and I could keep the beer cold and have a comfortable place to lay your head when you are not fishing. If you click here you can figure out which power companies are available in the place which you are looking for, but I am not really sure that any of them is going to be in a great big hurry to hook the power up here.

There are big high tension lines in the area, but this is on the opposite side of the lake from most of the places that have power. So it is not like they would run a line from a place that is across the street or next door. It is probably close to a quarter of a mile to the main road where there is a little country store. At any rate I need to get them to hook the power up, but there is not a lot in it for them. In fact I might be able to make do with other means if I needed to do it. For example you could get a natural gas tank and use that for heating, cooking and even running the appliances. I figure that I could get a small efficient refrigerator, the type that you get on a motor home. Those can be set up to run on what you have available and you can use it any way you like.

Let’s Be Patient with Our Tech Support

together A cable box thatI’ve had the pleasure of being a Comcast Cable TV customer for a couple of years now and I have to say the number of complaints that I hear against the service seem kind of absurd to me. I’ve not yet had a single problem in my area – I don’t know if that is a reflection of Comcast itself or if the cable infrastructure here is just better than average, as I am sure that has a lot to do with the quality that people have. I do know that many cable lines are in dire need of servicing as a former employee of one of the cable providers.m

Now that I have your attention I hope you don’t mind that I use this moment to make a plea of empathy to you readers. When you call into tech support, please realize that those techs are not at fault for your loss of service or whatever the problem might be. Often it is hardware or something more physical in the lines, nodes or what have you. Continue reading

I Needed a Halloween Rave Costume

I have been going to raves for about five years now. I was always the type who went because I simply love the music, but recently I have started taking note of the different styles of fashion that are represented at the various ones. I have always considered sexy rave clothing for other types of people but never for myself. That all changed last year when I decided to go all out for a Halloween rave that I was going to. I wanted to wear something other than my typical jeans and halter top, so I went online to look at different costumes that I could purchase.

When I saw one that reminded me of a unicorn, I knew it was the one that I was getting. The hood is exquisite! The soft white fur has a pink satin horn and two pink satin ears attached to it. There are also two pom poms, one on each side of it, attached to long ties. The bodice is white and has pink laces that tie in the front. The skirt is a variety of colors, including blue, green, pink, yellow, and purple. Continue reading

Just Got Down Here in Birmingham,Alabama

In fact I am living a bit Northeast of Birmingham in a suburb called Trussville. It is convenient to the job that I have been transferred to. Right now I am trying to get ready for to wife and kids, who really are not happy about leaving North Carolina. They were pretty happy living in Cary and Becky had a good job with the Wake County school system. Right now I am waiting on the guy with the trussville adt to set up the alarm in this big old house I bought. We still have to sell the house in North Carolina, but that is going to wait for the kids and Becky to finish the school year. We might even rent it out, because that would be rather easy it appears. In fact there might be a way that we could sell the land under the house and move the house to a new location.

That is because the place where we live now is becoming a commercial area and there is a huge amount of traffic on the street where we live. It is a rather large corner lot and so it would be ideal for something like aservice station or a little convenience store or perhaps a restaurant. We would definitely be willing to talk to anyone who wanted to use the land for whatever purpose. We just need to get the house sold, because we can not afford to own two houses. This one was very inexpensive for the size of it. At least it is a lot cheaper than a house like this would have been in Cary. I need to do some work to it, but it is not as though the place is going to fall down on top of me or anything.

What must be the value of r for the astronauts to weigh 1/4 of their earth weight?

  1. Suppose the surface (radius = r) of a cylindrical space station is rotating at 23.1 m/s to provide artificial gravity. What must be the value of r for the astronauts to weigh 1/4 of their earth weight?

    Answer by Earth Man
    Answer –> 217.6 m

    Given.

    v = 23.1 m/s
    a = 2.4525 m/s^2 (25% of 9.81 m/s^2 Earth gravity)

    Original equation is:

    a = v^2 / r

    Solve for r:

    r = v^2 / a

    With values:

    r = (23.1 m/s)^2 / (2.4525 m/s^2)

    r = (533.61 m^2/s^2) / (2.4525 m/s^2)

    r = 217.6 m

  2. A conical paper cup is to have a height of 4 inches. What is the radius r of the cone that will result in a surface area of 6π in^2?

    Answer by poornakumar b
    2 π r h = 6π in^2
    & r = 4″.
    h = 6 π / (2 πX4)
    = 3/4 “.

  3. Please help. I’m trying to find a good quality r/c plane under $ 150. I do not know if I should buy a plane with a nitro engine or an electric engine. Thank you.

    Answer by Jack
    Ive always been a massive fan of nitro engines. but recently changed to electric.
    its so much cheaper in the long run, there is no mess to clean up, no messing arround with engine problems which you will get from small r/c engines and its much safer. starting an engine is dangerious and ive know people to loose fingers from this. ive had a few close shaves myself.
    As long as you have a decent charger you can charge a spare battery in the time it taks you to run the other flat, just wack it on a car battery.
    Only downside is you dont get that awsome noise you get from nitro.
    Hope this helps :D

Something That Actually Works for Weight Loss

When I first started taking Garcinia Cambogia, I didn’t think it would actually work. I didn’t want to take it at first, because it cost money, and I didn’t want to pay for it. It just so happens that one of my friends started taking it, and he gave some to me. He swore up and down that it was a good product and I would greatly benefit from it. I thought he had been taken in and was simply wasting his money, but I wasn’t one to turn down a free gift, so I accepted it. I’m glad I started using it.

The supplement produced some noticeable results in a short amount of time. I looked forward to weighting myself in the morning, because I liked seeing the numbers going down each day. Continue reading

Get More Customers With Social Media Marketing

You will be more successful if you can come up with new and interesting content. People will share something they believe is worth their time or provokes a pleasant reaction. Look at successful campaigns and identify the type of content that people will want to share with their friends on social networks.

You will establish a great impression with your social media marketing if you spend time interviewing important experts from your niche. Make videos of these interviews and present them on YouTube. Customers will appreciate the interesting content, and by associating yourself with these people, you make your company look smart and reliable too. This authenticity only helps you sell your products and services within your niche. It is best to require only a minimum of effort from your customers. If your first contact with a customer is a request for his information or a survey, that customer will probably just leave your website. If the first steps are easy, they will grow into something positive for your company and will stick with it.

If you are using WordPress for your site, be sure to put a Retweet button that is at the top of your posts for your readers to use. This will make it easy for them to pass on your information to others. WordPress has plugins for this, so it will be simple for you to do with huge benefits in the long run. Update your social network profiles when you post new content on your blog. The people who follow you through social media sites will appreciate being notified when you provide fresh, useful content for them. Social media marketing today is one of the tops methods people use to promote their business online. This platform can, however, be confusing for the average business owner. Admittedly, it can be difficult trying to figure out not just how to set up pages, but also how to target potential customers, and stay within budget. This article will guide you in how to effectively set up your campaign to be highly effective in achieving the goals you desire. If you have a business, your customers are usually on a social media site. If you’re not already set up with a profile for your company, what’s stopping you? You can potentially increase your number of customers by targeting your marketing efforts on some of the better-known social network sites. One technique that many social media marketers use is advertising with strange images that have been heavily Photoshopped. It is a very brilliant idea to use attractive images to draw buyers onto your ad. An advertisement to which customers pay attention is one that will be more effective in encouraging them to check out your business. Always test and tweak your content before you make it accessible to the general public. Even post launch evaluations can be a powerful tool to make sure you are getting the most from your efforts. When you do this, you prevent the release of content that can bring down your business and harm your image.

Allow your customers to follow you on a variety of social networks. People are now accustomed to using social media sites every day, so giving them fast access via Twitter, Linkedin or Facebook is a great method to ensure they can access your information instantly when you post. Take time to check out your competition before creating your first Facebook page. A little opposition research will give you a better handle on what works, and what doesn’t, and what has already been done. Your page must be attractive and contain key information in order to succeed.

If you have a tough time with formatting, use a list format for the next article you post on your social networking profiles. A list provides a straightforward, clear structure for both you, the author, and your audience. Numbering the list can also establish priorities and clarify the relative importance of your points. Since many social media users are younger, they will appreciate the effort you put into delivering relevant information in an abbreviated fashion. Interact with your customers, and potential customers, as much as you can. Comment on their blogs, send messages, and communicate via forums. Do anything you can as long as it is appropriate. Avoiding getting into personal discussions with your customers, stick to product or industry related issues only.

Find ways to increase your ability to reach contacts of friends and other users that exist on the social networks. You need to always place the Facebook share icon at the beginning of you posts. Doing so might require a little extra time and effort on your part, but you’ll notice the difference that it makes.

Try using services like Twellow or Tweepi to find customers and followers who are interested in your products or niche. These programs are designed to locate the highest attention lists, and also who runs them. Then, request that the owners add your business to their lists.

Always take the time to look over your Facebook content or Twitter post for errors before you hit the submit button. Keep in mind that it is always important to remain professional. Use abbreviations sparingly when communicating with your customers on Twitter. Your content should look as professional and well-written as possible.

      Beautify Your Eyes with an Eyelash Curler

      Curled hair is appetizing especially when it belongs to a lady. Women could not only curl their head hair. They can as well coil their eyelashes using an eyelash curler. This is a simple looking hand-run gadget being sold now on the Internet. If you have less than perfect lashes, you can still enhance their appearance by curling. Short or long, curly eyelashes look hot and trendy. However, if you want to look hotter, the best thing to do first is to try to grow your natural lash.

      There are many different ways of doing that, including wearing eyelash extensions. If you like being natural and beautiful, you can use simple methods to grow the lashes. When they are longer and thicker, the curler produces wonderful results within a short duration. Some of you are hearing this for the first time and will probably buy one of these gadgets soon.

      Paf

      A typical eyelash curler can be made of plastic or metal. The former is a simple gadget, which is less heavy and cheap to buy. It is very appropriate for ladies that are always on the go because it is very convenient to carry and use. The latter is very appropriate for all other women that need to make their lash curly. Metal is durable and it can retain heat and these are two qualities that these gadgets have.

      Still, you can find devices that use battery heat to run and they are very dependable. You do not need to use a hair blow dryer to heat them so they can work effectively. Regardless of the above-implied differences, all curling devices have similar features. First, they all have a frame and a hinge for easy eyelash clamping.

      Second, they have a handle, which you should hold with your hand as you twist the lid. For extra comfort and safety of your eyelid, most curler styles have a padding attached to them. Whenever a pad cannot work any longer, you can easily replace it by first removing the older one. Next, press the new one into the holder. Since most gadgets are sold with replacement cushions, you will not have another shopping task ahead.

      The best curlers have to apply heat as they do their job. The metal ones are very easy to use because they can conduct heat fast while plastic cannot. All you should do is to heat them for about five seconds, clamp the lash as next to the root as you can and hold it there. Then, slither it slowly towards the middle of the lashes and eventually to the tips.

      If you use them properly, metal curlers should work easily and quickly, especially if they use battery power. Although there are many curlers in the marketplace, not all styles are good for you. In fact, some are junks, as they will make your eyelash thinner and weaker. If willing to buy the best eyelash curler, you must be willing to find out other shoppers experiences. Solicit ideas from friends or even the online community before buying.

      You actually might need to become familiar with – Great Ideas About Understanding Cats In The Article Below

      Use short words when you want to express displeasure with your cat. A short ‘no’ will be remembered, even if not always followed. A lot of people think that cats don’t listen to anything, but short word commands are certainly understood by cats, and they will respond to those commands if you are consistent with them.

      There’s nothing like having a pet. There are many kinds of pets, but there’s a special one that has warmed the hearts of many pet owners. Cats are great companions for your home. If you want to care for one, read this article for tips related to caring for cats. If you want a cat that is well-behaved and not prone to biting and scratching, make sure that you do not try to adopt one when it is too young. It takes 12-16 weeks for a kitten to learn proper cat behavior from their mom and all of their siblings.

      In all likelihood, your cat is very important to your household and taking good care of him is quite important to you. Since looking at this piece, you have a better understanding of how to properly care for your cat. Use these tips for a happier cat. If your cat is loved by you then that cat will love you back. When you move your cat from one house to another, be sure to move the cat last. Set up a quiet room with familiar items for the cat. Keep your cat in the room and quiet for a day or two. Visit and feed the cat in the room. After a couple of days, the cat can explore the rest of the house. Happy dogs wag their tail. A cat wagging its tail can have a very different meaning. In cats, wagging of the tail tends to indicate conflict or anxiety. When you hold your cat and he begins to wag his tail, put him down! As was mentioned earlier in this article, cats need a lot of attention and care if you want them to live a happy and healthy life. Make sure to implement the advice mentioned above if you’re considering getting a cat. It is information both you and your cat are sure to benefit from. Cats are constantly grooming themselves, and this is why they rarely need a bath. If your cat gets into something particularly stinky, a bath will not hurt them. If your cat does not like water you might want to wear gloves so that you do not get scratched. You might also want to enlist the help of a friend or family member.

      If you have a male cat, it is important to have him neutered before he goes into heat. When male cats start maturing, they will begin to spray around the house. It smells like ammonia and is hard to remove. Having your male cat neutered can help to prevent this from happening.

      Cats are one of the most independent pets you can own. However, this doesn’t mean you can simply let them live their lives without caring for them. A lot goes into owning a cat and the following article has some great tips to show you exactly what you need to know. Read on and learn. Feed your cat top quality food. Pay attention to the ingredient list on any food you feed them. Protein needs to be one of the very first items on the list, while fillers like corn and other grains should be avoided. Corn and other such protein-free fillers are things you want to stay well away from. Since cats are carnivorous, they require animal protein to stay in the best health.

      Cats are often viewed as feminine animals, but the truth is that there are plenty of cats perfect for becoming mans next best friend. Different breeds and bloodlines make an impact on how your new cat looks, behaves, and is cared for. Use this article to find some of the breeds that you find most entertaining.

      There is no need to bathe a cat since they are able to do most of their cleaning by themselves. The only way that you should bathe a cat is if there is something on their coat that has not come off for a good length of time, like oil and chemicals. You can microchip your cat. If you realize your pet is missing, you can log onto a website and see exactly where they are, which means they will be much easier to recover. Cats are said to be very intuitive and sometimes more helpful as companions than even other humans! If you own one, you already know this! Hopefully this article has given you answers to the questions you have about cats and set you straight on important issues. Enjoy your cat for many years to come.

      Encourage your child to play with cats by using toys, not by using their fingers and hands. Choose toys that put distance between the child’s hands and the cat’s teeth and claws. During a vigorous play session, an excited kitten is more likely to accidentally scratch its playmate’s skin. For example, you might use a long wand-type toy with a dangling feather or bell.

        How you approach a psychic reading can make it a worthwhile experience or not. You can set the tone by pointing the reader in the right direction. Preparing before you go to your reading is important.

        People have readings for fun, like at a fair and/or others might use a psychic reading to gain insight for advice making serious life decisions. Approaches to a reading can differ from the attitude of “tell me what you see” to those who have specific questions. Which way is the best approach?

        Preparing questions for a psychic reading will definitely give you more for your money and time. When you prepare before your appointment you are in control of your destiny. For instance, asking a reader to tell you anything is like stopping your car and asking for directions and when asked where are you going, you answer wherever you direct me is similar going to a reading without a prepared direction.

        Even if you are stopping by a booth at a fair you can quickly prepare by thinking of one, two or three areas of your life you wish insight into. One question can take about five minutes to answer without the reader elaborating. If its a 15-minute reading most likely two or three questions be can discussed.

        Most popular questions are about love, money, career and health. Parents often ask about their children and spouses about the other spouse. Others ask about education, travel and also spirituality – karma. Forget asking for lotto numbers. If the reader knew the winning numbers shed be doing something other than working for a living.

        State your question simply. No need to elaborate, but dont play games with the reader. Its waste of your time. Be willing to part with some information about your topic. For instance if you asking about a love interest and the reader asks for her/his name, give it. No need to tell the reader everything about the person, your feelings and thoughts about him or her. Let the reader pick it up psychically.

        Structure your questions to gain as much as possible from the reader. Rather than asking “Will I have love?” say, “I wish to share my life with a love partner. How does that look for me?” The latter lends to a more detailed answer.

        You want to get as much information needed so prioritize before the session and if you have a thirty-minute reading you want the most important issues answered first. Write your questions and the day of prioritize them.

        Near the end of the session you might ask, “Is there anything else for me?” – just in case youre not aware of an important issue at hand or coming up in the future.

        Remember a reading is to gain insight to help you make decisions therefore take control and use it as such.

        Synchronized Swimming

        Synchronized swimming is a form of swimming which combines the sport of swimming with the artistic characteristics of both gymnastics and dance. It could be performed by a solo, a duet, a trio, or more commonly, by a team of swimmers. As its name implies, synchronized swimming involves performing a synchronized routine of complicated and intricate moves in the water while being accompanied by background music.

        Visit Affiliate AD with reference to Bet365 -
        Bet365

        Synchronized swimming requires a lot from its participants. Swimmers that participate in this sport have to have highly advanced swimming skills along with incredible breath control because many maneuvers require the swimmer to be upside down under the water. They also have to be very graceful, flexible, and artistic in the water. Lastly, the swimmers must have an impeccable sense of timing in order for the routine to come out well.

        In both the Olympic Championship and the World Championship events of synchronized swimming, men are not allowed to compete. However, in the US and Canada Championships, male competitors are allowed to participate along with the women. Most of the synchronized swimming championships held in Europe allow male swimmers to compete as well. France even has male only synchronized swimming events. The Mens Cup synchronized swimming championship – a worldwide biannual synchronized swimming event for men – has also been steadily growing over the past years.

        During competition, the participants are required to perform two different routines that will be scored by the judges. The first one is a technical routine while the second one is a free routine. Both of these routines though require the participants to show off their endurance, elegance, and creativity. There are also age group based routines.

        The technical routine also requires the participants to show off predetermined elements of synchronized swimming that must be done in the exact order that they have been given. The free routine on the other hand has no such bounds. This is the routine where the swimmers incorporate their own unique moves and show off their imaginative and artistic talents.

        The length of time allowed for the routines is greatly dependent on the number of participants. Solo and duet competitions are the shortest routines as they are given just two and a half minutes to complete their routine. Team competitions naturally would require more time for them to be able to show off their skills and are therefore usually given up to 5 minutes to complete their routine. The skill level of the competition and the age level of the participants are also usually considered when determining the maximum allowed time for the completion of a routine.

        Synchronized swimming was first exhibited at the Olympics during the 1952 summer games. It was not until the Olympic Games at Los Angeles, California in 1984 however that it became an official sport of the Olympics. Furthermore, it was only in 1968 that synchronized swimming was recognized by the Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA) as the fourth official water sport, joining the ranks of swimming, water polo, and platform diving.

This facilitates good digestion, as it replicates the mode of travel food takes through the intestines. Make sure your feet are clean prior to your massage; a foot bath can help with this. You don’t want the germs present on your feet to be spread to the rest of your body. You can go to the bathroom and wash your feet as a last resort.

          Tools are imperative to utilize during a massage. Massage tools make it easier to give a massage and more enjoyable to receive one. These affordable accessories are easily found in specialized stores or online. Experiment a little with different tools and see which one you like the most.

            Clay Mask Recipes

            Clays are a wonderful beauty product that boast not just rejuvenating skin, but also promote physical health and well-being. Clay types such as Bentonite and White Kaolin are not only used as facial masks but have also been incorporated in bath soaps, lotions, creams, skin care agents, and toiletries, as colorants or beauty-enhancing ingredient.

            You can whip up your own clay masks at home or use the powder for your bath water, as poultice, or in first aid treatment. Cosmetic clays are known to have exfoliating properties and are known to detoxify and improve blood and lymph circulation. Around two or three ounces of clay mixed in with scented bath water will leave your skin feeling smooth and refreshed. You can also create a paste with a small amount of clay, aloe vera gel, or distilled water to be applied on rashes, small cuts, minor burns, insect sting and bites. The paste can also be spread on gauze and kept moist on aching muscles or rheumatic joints.

            In whipping up your own clay mask, it is important to know that different types of skin require a specific type of clay.

Just make sure you perform a patch test on a small area of your skin (e.g. a portion of your forearm) before putting the mixture on the face. Always apply the mask over a clean, damp face for better clay action.

            Note: You can replace orange flower water with distilled water

            French Green Clay Mask (for acne-prone and oily skin)

            1 ounce green clay

            3 tablespoons aloe vera gel

            Mix the clay, aloe vera gel, orange flower water, and drops of essential oils in that order to form a thick, fragrant paste. Make sure to mix the ingredients well before applying to the face. Avoid the eye area. Leave the mixture on for 15 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and then cold water to tighten pores.

            Miele Professional Announces a New Approach to Reduce Canine Parvovirus Infection Risk

            Thermal disinfection provides veterinary practices with safe and sustainable process to deactivate contaminated laundry


            Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) October 23, 2014

            There is no cure for canine parvovirus (CPV). Dogs infected with the virus, typically unvaccinated dogs and puppies, suffer severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Veterinarians can only treat the afflicted dogs for dehydration and make sustained efforts to contain the virus. CPV is highly contagious and spreads through contact with contaminated stool, dogs, environments, and people. Resistant to many disinfectants, the virus can survive in the environment for years. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, the best way to prevent CPV is through good hygiene and vaccination.

            For busy veterinary practices that manage large volumes of laundry every day, maintaining good hygiene includes using liberal amounts of bleach or other toxic chemicals. However, vets now have the means to reduce the amount of expensive, corrosive and unsafe chemicals used for disinfecting laundry contaminated with CPV.

            In recent findings published by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), Germanys foremost research institution for infectious diseases, successful treatment of laundry contaminated with CPV is possible using sustained high temperature and a suitable suds ratio. Miele Professional, the worlds leading manufacturer of premium quality laundry systems, announced that its Octoplus and Little Giant Laundry Systems meet RKI recommendations for deactivating CPV.

            Miele Professional washers offer precise temperature control and holding time. During the wash cycle, water is heated to 85C (185F) and held at that temperature for 15 minutes. A suds ratio of 1:4 (1 kilogram laundry to 4 liters wash bath) is required to achieve effective disinfection and eradicate CPV in contaminated laundry. Thermal disinfection is better for the environment, less harmful to patients and staff, and less destructive to equipment and fabrics when compared to bleach or other chemical disinfectants.

            Were continually doing laundry at the clinic, says Jodi Runck, Certified Veterinary Technician at the New Ulm Regional Veterinary Center in New Ulm, MN. The Center recently acquired an Octoplus Laundry System. Each week we see about 150 dogs along with our other patients. We are a mixed animal practice with some of our veterinarians visitng farms and treating farm animals, so our washers run non-stop. Jodi says that they have used chemical additives to disinfect laundry in the past. We know CPV is always going to be out there we just dont want it here, she adds.

            Miele Professional Octoplus and Little Giant washers are constructed of stainless steel and have been rigorously tested to run for 30,000 operating hours. Designed to conserve energy and water, the washers have 16 standard operating programs, including a high speed spin cycle that reduces drying time, providing additional time and energy savings. The matching high-efficiency dryers feature a patented residual moisture sensor system that precisely monitors the desired drying level of the laundry.

            Newer Revises – Basking In A Once In A Lifetime Wedding

            If you want an outdoor wedding, think about the weather. Make sure your guests have enough shade or protection from the wind or rain depending on the season. Do not impose a dress code that is inappropriate for the season. Follow weather forecasts and let your guests know what the weather is going to be like. When taking dance lessons for your first dance, do not get fixated on learning a routine. It may be tempting at first, but when you will actually get out on the dance floor you will be counting steps which will in turn make you look a bit robotic. So try to learn how to lead and follow instead.

            Consider a disc jockey instead of a live band for your reception. A band can often be very expensive, and the type of music they can play will be limited. A disc jockey can often save you money, and their playlist is only limited by your own imagination.

            The pictures that are taken at your wedding are very important as you will look at these for the rest of your life. Choose to hire a professional who can photograph your day in a way that is going to document all of your special moments, even if it means spending a little extra.

            When you are planning on who will be giving the speeches at the wedding, have them rehearse the material before you so that you can make sure everything is appropriate. Generally, many generations attend a wedding, so a joke that’s funny to young people may not be to the elders.

            Get properly fitted underwear for your wedding. A comfortable and supportive bra will not only ease the pressure on your back and shoulders, but also adjust your shape to give you a flattering look. Find a good lingerie store in your area who will fit you and order you the correct undergarments.

            See to it that your tuxedo fits you, if you’re the groom. Before you pick a tuxedo you should get some opinions. You want your wedding pictures to memorialize you and your bride looking your best. If you want your colorful wedding cake as the focal point of your reception, present it on a coordinating fabric tablecloth. You can choose to use solids, patterns or textured fabrics like silk, velvet or satin to create a visual interest that will tie all these elements together.

            Weddings are a flurry of stress! Where do you even begin with planning one? If your wedding plans are making your head swim in possibilities, avoid mayhem by following these simple tips to help organize your wedding. You will soon find that it is easy to plan a wedding if you do it in small steps! If the future newlyweds enjoy traveling, display decorations that portray a sense of wanderlust. Save-the-date notices and invitations could be created to resemble tickets, boarding passes, or vintage postcards. Distinctive props can be used to hold items for the wedding guests to see.

            When you are getting married, ask for help from family and friends, especially those who have gone through the wedding process before. They will help to offer you exceptional advice, as they have the experience that is necessary to give input on your decision. Tap into the heads of your loved ones for sound information. After reading these tips, it’s safe to say that you probably weren’t aware of even half of these ideas. And that’s because no one ever realizes just how much goes into planning a wedding until they’re actually staring at it in the face. A wedding is perhaps the most detail-oriented celebration out there, so be sure that you’re using these tips to help you out. If you are hosting a destination wedding, your guests may appreciate receiving a basket of vacation goodies in their room on their arrival. Also include practical items such as maps of the area, disposable digital cameras, sun protection, and tourist information. You may also want to include a guide for the restaurants in the area so they can choose where they prefer to eat.

              Ware Academy Named a Virginia Naturally School For Second Year In A Row

              The goal of the program is to recognize the efforts undertaken by Virginia schools that increase environmental awareness and stewardship of its students.

              Gloucester, Va. (PRWEB) October 24, 2014

              Ware Academy is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, it was named a Virginia Naturally School. This honor recognizes Ware Academys efforts to increase environmental awareness and stewardship of its students during the 2013-2014 academic year. Ware Academy was one of only 52 schools in the state to receive the recognition this year, and one of only two independent schools selected.

              Virginia Naturally Schools is the official environmental education school recognition program for the state of Virginia and is administered by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

              To earn the Virginia Naturally recognition, Ware Academy had to showcase administrative support for conservation and environmental education programs; high quality professional development that supports integrating conservation and environmental education into the classroom; resource conservation on campus; field and hands on experiences for the students; library and equipment resources dedicated to conservation and environmental education; outdoor classrooms and community support.

              Ware Academys academic programming includes conservation and environmental learning at all grade levels, from pre-school to middle school.

              Among the many programs at Ware Academy that led to the award are the following:

              1.Middle School students participated in an annual weekend excursion trip to Northern Virginia. During the 2013-2014 school year, the sixth grade class assembled two floating turtle platforms for the pond located on the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center property. The manmade pond was lacking sufficient areas for the turtles to bask in the sun and warm their cold-blooded bodies. Without these platforms, the turtles were forced to seek an area to “sunbathe” on the banks of the pond, which made them more susceptible to predation.

              2.Ware Academys eighth grade class participated in an annual week-long excursion trip exploring the Chesapeake Bay watershed each spring. The class traveled to northern Pennsylvania to explore the headwaters of the Susquehanna River. In conjunction with the USGS Northern Appalachian Research Lab, the class conducted stream surveys and studied the freshwater mussel population. Students gained an understanding of various environmental components within the watershed that contribute to some of the environmental problems in the Chesapeake Bay.

              3.Continuing a project that began last year, students during the 2013-2014 school year monitored the activity of a female wren who inhabited a bluebird station on campus. The entire school community watched via webcam as she built her nest.

              4.As residents of the water rich Tidewater Region, second grade students participated in a field exploration program at a local oyster farm. There, the students examined the importance and contributions of Chesapeake Bay species. Upon returning to the classroom, students were challenged to create and test a water filtration system that would perform as well as the oysters natural system that they had observed in the field.

              5.Students and faculty at Ware Academy continued their support of the school-wide recycling program with middle school students also participating in bi-annual roadside cleanup efforts on a main thoroughfare adjacent to Ware Academy.

              6.Students in the Lower School participated in the Chesapeake Bay Foundations annual bay grass restoration project. Students germinated and cultivated wild celery (native submersed aquatic vegetation). The mature plants were then transplanted into a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay.

              Looking forward with the hopes of being selected as a Virginia Naturally School for a third year in a row, the Middle School students have already been exploring various water quality testing components, in addition to, developing an aquaponics based system in the school greenhouse. Teachers in the lower grades are anxious to expose their students to the fundamental components of this system. In order to achieve this goal, teachers have reached out to a local aquaponics farm, which currently employs a variety of systems within their greenhouses to grow produce for local markets and restaurants.

              Ware Academy plans to utilize this farm to help educate its students in sustainable agriculture.

              Lessons will be devised to enrich the field experience once the students return to the classroom.

              Teachers are also planning to expand the amount of native milkweed in the schools educational garden. Students will germinate and maintain milkweed plants throughout the school year. The plants will then be used in monarch conservation efforts, which include rearing monarch caterpillars, monitoring their growth, protecting them through maturity, and releasing them prior to their migration south.
