Entering the New World

November 18th, 2015

When I was younger, we used to complain about how hot is would get during the summer. Then we would go crazy turning up the portable fans as high as they would go! Luckily, we do not live in the twelfth century any more. Our new family home is modern and it has a working air conditioning Manchester unit! I know that today this is not a big deal. However, in Europe, many people do not have an AC unit. They suffer through the heat as they have done for decades! I do not know how those people do it! I am dying if it is over seventy degrees outside! I am so glad we live in a country that has an AC unit in each house! I do not know how people in the past put up with it. America is seriously the most modern and convenient place to live in the world!

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure

August 25th, 2015

I know what I have done with all of my trash in the past — throw it away! Hardly ever do we pass by landfills, or recycling centers, and most of us never stop to think that we could recycle our trash. After all, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Like many responsible adults, I have a few bottles of beer after work, or a glass of wine with my dinner three or four times a week. I usually collect all my trash, throw it in a trash bag, then throw that bag into my garbage can – and that’s the last I see of them.

Recycling these glass bottles can not only save the Earth’s well-being, but can also net you some extra money (depending on your state of residence).

I suggest making use of recycled glass media yourself. Good luck!

The Gambler’s Dream

August 20th, 2015

It was a gambler’s dream. The lights everywhere, all the promotional girls, the hotel attendants catering to your every need. And, of course, the rooms, completely free and full of liquor. To enter, however, the minimum bet was $1,000. Doug had wanted to go for so long. A professional gambler since he turned old enough, he had saved all his life for this one moment of glory. Proudly, he marched into the atrium like Alexander marching towards conquering the world. “Good evening, sir, please let our attendants take your bags”, said a red-vested man. “We’ll get you checked in and a drink, where would you like to gamble first?” “Blackjack!” said Doug as he handed over his bags and marched proudly over to the table. As the night wore on, the red-vested man realized he was in trouble. Doug, having years of experience, took the house for $19,000.

Body Adjustment

August 6th, 2015

I was talking with a friend the other day about my aching back. She convinced me to try a form of body adjustment known as thai massage Liverpool. Well, I must admit that I was kind of skeptical about the whole thing. My friend is in to all this new age stuff, but I wasn’t. Still, I thought that I would give it a go.

I checked out a local health spa that was offering a special on the massage. This was a two for one deal. This was my first massage and my first visit to a beauty spa. The massage therapist was kind of small and delicate, but strong. She spent well over an hour stretching my entire body. I could feel my bones popping and almost bending. It was the strangest experience that I have ever had, but I will be back for more next week.

Getting Ready To Sell Our House

July 26th, 2015

It is a bittersweet time for my husband and I. He accepted a job offer in a new city. It is a better-paying job, and we are excited about moving to another city. However, we are nervous about what the future holds. We are also in the process of selling the home we have lived in for the past 15 years.

Before we put our home on the market, we took the time to fix it up. We spent about $20,000 on remodeling our home. We knew that if we upgraded our home, then it would have a better chance of being sold. We purchased new appliances and porous paving materials.

Even though it hurts to be leaving the home we have lived in for so long, my husband and I know that we will always be a family, regardless of where we live.

Defining Sexuality

July 14th, 2015

One of the most confusing struggles for young people is defining what, exactly, their sexuality is. There is a certain societal pressure to be able to strictly define levels of attraction. Coupled with the complexity of sexuality in general and the difficulty of defining oneself in an environment that is less open towards non-normative attraction, this can make defining sexuality a particularly difficult thing to do.

Many youth are open to experimentation and hesitant to put themselves into the box of ‘lesbian’, ‘gay’, or ‘bisexual’ for a variety of reasons. They might be uncomfortable identifying with that particular part of the LGBTQ community, for example. Although there are different types of gay men and gay dating, this is not necessarily readily apparent to a young person without much exposure to the community who has learned all he knows from watching television.

Found My Motivation and I Look Great!

July 7th, 2015

Losing weight has been the hardest struggle of my life and I really struggle with motivation. It is so easy to be good about going to the gym and eating a healthy diet for a week. Then, something comes up and my motivation is lost.

I finally managed to shed some serious weight the past couple months and it’s all because I hired a thai massage Manchester. I was worried about the cost but I have found the investment in my health to be totally worth it. I knew that my trainer was expecting me to show up and meet him at the gym every day and he was going to quiz me on what I ate. I can’t lie to people so the pressure he placed on me kept me on the straight and narrow. I wish I had thought of hiring a trainer years ago!
