Have a Drink!

According to a university research, a single glass of wine in the evening will let you relax in bed, but more than that will lead you to grogginess the next day.

Your body must work overtime to metabolize excess alcohol, which disrupts the deep restorative sleep that makes you feel great in the morning.

Here's how you could make it work quickly on the shell and get those tasty morsels ;).

  4. Gently tug out the tender meat by holding the tip of the tail.

Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

Summer is fast approaching, so I am sure you are almost ready for some outdoor fun! Have you checked your outdoor lighting as well? Perhaps, you need an upgrade if not a change ;).

You get a lot of choices when it comes to designs, brands and models as well, with everyday low prices guaranteed! It means more savings with a beauty and character for your home.

Spur of the Moment?

I don't know...but I suddenly got the idea of visiting Longwood Gardens just to take a deep long breath and get to see the sight of spring in the garden. Ahhh...I guess I really need to combat boredom attacking me again!
I know I need to stretch at times and get out in a different environment, and I think it is always a good idea to commune with nature, - the best therapy when boredom strikes! Don't you think?

I'm thinking of doing it tomorrow, but still unsure. It's a 2-hour drive going there, and I am still doubting about the weather. It might rain or having thunders. How I wish Mr. sunshine would be active tomorrow at the garden...{sigh!}.

Protecting Your Data in Public Places

For business travelers, technology is helping them become more efficient and mobile, but as technology becomes more convenient and hassle-free, there is the downside to all, - increased exposure to data and identity theft.

But once again, technology is helping out prevent the rising problem in the form of new traveler security devices, like improved privacy filters that protect data in public places.
These gadgets are simple to attach and remove, and the filter's high-gloss surface increases the clarity for the reader while defending the data from unauthorized sources; - which is also greater privacy, brighter and sharper text.

But of course, on the part of business travelers, the best defense against data theft still remains an important awareness.

Pimple Treatment Products

Of course, there are still pimple treatment products that work. The only thing you have to do is pick the right one that works for you! I would like to believe in the statement how to get rid of pimples overnight can actually happen. Like how to treat your pimples really super fast and they are all gone before the sunrise of the next day, lol!
I recommend more reading for those who are still battling the acne problem, particularly reading honest, unbiased reviews from users, and knowing more about what the experts say and recommend.

Hypoglycemia vs. Hyperglycemia

Here are some ideas how to handle your blood sugar:
When blood sugar drops too low (hypoglycemia), you can suddenly feel weak, worried, irritated, confused, shaky and hungry. If you have any of those symptoms, check your blood sugar right away. If the level is 70mg/dl or lower, drink or eat something to prevent fainting or seizure.
Once cup of milk or half cup of fruit juice is an ideal intake, then check your blood sugar again after 15 minutes.
If it's still not higher than 70 mg/dl, eat something else like a small box of raisins or 5 pieces of hard candy. Repeat it again until your blood sugar comes back to normal.

Prevent hypoglycemia:
  • don't skip meals/snacks
  • take your diabetes medicine on time.
  • check your blood sugar regularly.
  • don't drink a lot of alcohol.
When your blood sugar soars higher than 180 mg/dl (hyperglycemia), some warning signs are:
blurry vision, thirsty, upset stomach and urinating often.
Check your blood sugar if these happens and if your blood sugar is high, take your prescribed medicines right away. Call your doctor right away if it goes higher than 240 mg/dl for more than a day.

Prevent hyperglycemia:
  • Be sure you keep taking your medicine even if you're sick because sickness and infection can cause your blood sugar to rise.
  • Avoid stress. Too much can raise it as well.
  • Always exercise.
  • Follow your meal plan closely.


Well, I'm guessing that the term is in French, but anyway, French that can speak English will know what I mean ;). I am referring to the site that offers a lot of gadgets in a budget-friendly prices which means you can save a lot. Check on those Caméscopes. You can as well check more great deals on their clearance outlet. There are lots of items to choose from, so keep checking and happy shopping!

How to Save a Dying Party

The key to a good party is being in a tight space. If the party is in your house, turn off lights in a few rooms and make everyone congregate in the living room or the kitchen, instead of letting your visitors wander all over your house. Above all, if you have any concerns, don't let it show. Everyone will have a great time if you seem to be having one, too.

Being a hostess, it's your responsibility to introduce everyone and let them know what they have in common.
Good mingling with others starts with a good list. Although ideally, everyone knows one or two people making them comfortable - but they don't know everyone in the room.

If people are leaving early, make the guests who remain feel like VIPs, not stragglers. Pour shots, move some furniture or turn on the dance music.

Be Ready for a Doctor's Visit When You Have Diabetes

If you're diabetic and getting ready for a doctor's visit, your doctor can help you better manage your diabetes and make the most of your time together.

Before the visit:
Be sure to take your blood sugar or glucose monitor and/or written records of blood glucose readings. The doctor can help you correct high or low results.

Make a list of symptoms or worries you want to talk about.

Write down your questions you want to ask your doctor which include the following:
  • how often should I check my blood glucose?
  • What's my target range for blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol?
  • Should I make any changes to my lifestyle (food, exercise, meals) to make my blood glucose control better?
During the visit:
Your doctor may check your mouth, eyes, heart and feet, since diabetes can often cause problems in those areas.

Blood pressure checking is also essential. If you have high BP, this increases your risk for stroke, heart attack, eye problems and kidney disease.

Foot problems may also occur if you have diabetes. Ask your doctor for tips on foot care such as how to wash and check them every day.

You need to have a blood test called the hemoglobin A1c test every 3-6 months. This test checks your average blood glucose reading for the past 2-3 months.

Is Your Waist Size Putting Your Health at Risk?

Fats around your middle means a risk factor for heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. It may also be a high risk for stroke.

People who tend to have weights around their waist are called "apple shaped", while those who gain weight at hips and thighs are called "pear shaped".

Research says that putting on fat around our waist have higher health risks, because perhaps certain hormones may play a role. Genes and aging are other risk factors as well.

Another key reason for a larger waist is lack of exercise, and working out may be a solution. According to a study, even a small amount of exercise like a 30-minute walk daily can help overweight people lose belly fat and can even stop it from building up in the first place.

So, what's an unhealthy waist size for an average person? Men who have waist that measures 40 inches or more are at a higher risk, and women with waist measurement of 35 inches or more are at risk.
Check it yourself using a tape measure. The tape should be snug around your waist, but shouldn't squeeze into your skin.

Slip Solution Products

I hate slippery floors. So that the first thing that came into my mind when I got my house in the Philippines was to install a non skid floor on the entire first floor and in our bedroom which is just close to the bathroom. There is nothing safer when you're inside your home when you have your floors all safely secured with slip solution products.

Why Lab Results Are Essential to Keep

Some patients don't hold on to lab results after their doctor's or hospital visits. But did you know that keeping track of your lab results can lead to better health? Here are the reasons why they are sensible enough to keep:

If you have a record of earlier tests around, you can show them to a specialist or another doctor and he/she doesn't need to order another set. Repeating test is a waste of time to both you and your doctor's time.

Having your lab results with you help you play a more active role in your own health. If you know your blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure levels and other important health information, you can control them better in the future.

Knowing how to get your medical records makes it easier to keep your different doctors on the same page.

Do The "Muffin-Top" Workout!

And you might just be wondering what "muffin-top" am I referring to! - It's that back-of-the-hips area that bulges over the waistband of your fave jeans, which means a body fat, plain and simple.

And the muffin-busting plan? Do the steps below: (Do this with cardio intervals).
  1. Start with a 5-minutes warm-up at a low-to-moderate intensity to get your blood flowing.

  2. Pick up the pace for a minute; the effort should be about a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10; - 1 being effortless and 10 being extremely tough. Try it by increasing the treadmill incline, running stairs or hopping onto a tough cardio machine like a stairstepper.

  3. Recover for 1-2 minutes at an easier pace - about 5 on your toughness scale.

  4. Repeat those intervals for 20 minutes. Once you have the interval rythm down, throw in some spurts in which you're working at an 8 or 9 on your toughness scale to challenge your body and burn even more fat. Cool down for 5 minutes at a lighter pace.

How to Communicate With Your Employees Effectively

You don't have to be an extrovert to foster healthy communication in your company. You just simply need a will to improve it. You need to be honest, showing respect to employees and work on building trust. There are helpful habits and practices that engender good communication as well as helpful tips on conveying your messages effectively.

According to Rick Galbreath, HR consultant from Illinois; Strive to be transparent and straightforward to the extent possible about the challenges of your company including the financials. It's always a common case that being the boss, your employees know you make more money than they do, but what they don't understand is that you take more risk. Employees won't be able to understand the business.

A scheduled informal communication of at least 15 minutes daily or more if you can spare it is ideal. The simplest way to put yourself (and your managers) in the mindset communication is to put it on your calendar.

One on one meetings (informal confabs) with the people who report to you should at least be held biweekly which serves as excellent chance to track on their progress as well as helping identify problems, thus a powerful motivational tool.

Meeting in groups at the start of the day is a good way to discuss challenges, goals or any operating plan for the day. It shouldn't last more than 10 or 15 minutes. Then, every quarter, a company meeting can serve as a state-of-the-business update, Galbreath said.
The meeting should be at least an hour and includes a question-and-answer session. Questions can be made in advance as well.

Finally, a "lunch and learn" can be done occassionally which is as good as less formal discussion of the company, for introducing new products and strategies.
Make sure your message is heard. According to research by the Society for Human Resource Management; - people normally remember only 3-5 points from any communication, so keep it short and sharp. This is usually correct if you'll sending it by email or memo.
Keep the paragraph short and the whole document to no more than a page.

Balance criticism with compliments. A negative message wouldn't be heard. Before a meeting (whether one on one or a large group), plan what you're gonna say and how you say it. Tailor your message delivery to your audience.

Understand unspoken signals, like a body language. It can undermine a spoken message.

When a message needs reinforcement, follow it up afterward with a memo or note that recapitulates the conversation.

Is Your Surfing Safe?

Today, wi-fi networks are almost everywhere,-you can easily access them in parks, airports, coffee shops, schools, etc...
They can even pop up in dozens on your laptop and you name your choice! Of course, the official-sounding "free public wi-fi" is always there, which many prefers to use.
But still, not all are aware that a free wi-fi are potentially dangerous even if you only do surfing in a few minutes. A lot can happen in a few minutes, including your identity being hacked, and all.

Hackers can do pretty much anything they want, like installing viruses and spywares on your PC and taking all your data.
You can still get the best defense like using a recognized network and have an up-to-date software.
While there's no way to be 100% secure, common sense goes a long way. One important thing to note when you're using wi-fi in public setting: - You shouldn't be banking or stock trading. Not even checking your bank account savings online is safe and therefore not recommended.

5 Rules for Better Exercise

You can move in the right direction while working out with the following tips:

Give your muscles a break. When you're lifting free-weights or using stationary weight machine in your work out, don't use the same muscles two days in a row. Experts recommend 2 or 3 sessions a week.

Don't hold your breath when you lift weights. Exhale during the most difficult part of your exercise and inhale during the easier part. Take time to inhale and exhale fully each time you lift the weight.

Wear proper shoes for any sport or fitness activity you do at least 3 or more times a week.

Stay hydrated but don't drink too much water. Too much water than your body needs before, during and after long tough exercise, like marathon can put you at risk for a dangerous condition called hyponatremia.

Avoid a lot of pre-exercise stretching which can actually lower your strength, but you should still warm up by taking a brisk walk or jogging before you do a harder exercise. Warming up can reduce muscle soreness.

Dell's Discount Coupons

I have a Dell desktop computer at home that was bought seven years ago, and yet it still works so good. What I am saying is; - you don't need to buy expensive and highly branded computers nowadays if you want to be practical.
And to tell you honestly, this computer of mine was bought with the help of Dell computer coupons which made me saved money and had me bought a nice printer too! ;)...(thank you Dell!).

It is not actually difficult to find and use these Dell coupon codes online. For your convenience use, each coupon code with the corresponding offer has an expiry date that comes with it that you can directly see whenever you want to choose one that you want to use.
There are so many special deals that you can get from Dell. By clicking the links given previously, you will be able to choose as much as you like including small items like inks and toners and printers.

Stop searching further and start surfing their list of top quality online coupons from Dell. There are other internet promotional offers from other merchants as well, so keep checking the site.

Another Dell coupons site where you can go is at Della's Deals ( It is also one of the best discount site to go to when you want to get your Dell computer at a more affordable cost.

How to Dodge Data Theft

Use VPN software. If your company doesn't have one, check or which offer safe connections for a reasonable fee.

Be sure you have an up to date system by installing all security updates for your browser and operating system. Also, get a good antivirus and anti-spyware program.

Turn off your PC's wi-fi if you're not using it. Your system could still connect you to a fake network without you being aware even if you're not on the internet.

Opt forwell-known networks like T-mobile or At&T as much as possible, and download the encryption software they offer you before you leave home.

Use networks with harder-to-crack WPA security instead of WEP. Your wireless utility reflects which type.

Turn of your wi-fi if you have a cellular modem. It's virtually impossible to hack cell communications which are a closed system.

Anytime you send personal data online, look for a lock icon in the lower-right corner of your PC browser or "https" in the web address. This indicates that the website is encrypting your data before sending it.

it's preferable to use Firefox browser rather than Explorer for Windows or Safari for MAC, since it has fewer security holes.

Be sure your computer's firewall is on (which can be found in network settings). This will keep other machines from surreptitiously connecting to yours.

Whenever possible be wary of doing any kind of financial transaction in public. Leave the online banking and stick trading until you're back home.

Premium Tickets Daily at ACheapseat

I'm glad I found a site that offers great deals on premium tickets daily. Recently, I missed that favorite band I wanted to watch because I wasn't able to get tickets for the show simply for the reason that they were all sold out! Didn't know there is such a website as this that has various access to many shows like concerts, sports and theater entertainments! :(.
One of my nephews loves Miami Heat. If only he could be here, I would give him a treat to buy Miami Heat Tickets. For sure, that would be his greatest treat that he would be having for the first time in his watch his favorite basketball team!

This site is also great to buy your New York Knicks Tickets if you're one of those avid fans.

So, keep searching!

Dealing With Difficult People

Most difficult people are either complainers, whiners or yellers! - and dealing with each one of them requires a different strategy.

If you're dealing with a chronic screamer, don't take his anger personally, but instead try to change the way you look at him. If you're visualizing your boss as a toddler having a meltdown, you wouldn't regret leaving work and you feel much better mood each day after that.

In dealing with whiners, it;s just best to listen to them first. Whiners mostly tend to be perfectionists. Once you've listened to their whines, try summarizing the problems you heard to let them know you're paying attention. Then, ask them to suggest any solutions. At least 9 out of 10 will come up with a good answer and go happily on their way.

Try using sarcasm strategically when dealing with a negative person. Maybe try some little ironic humor like; "You're right, this problem is hopeless, we should all give up." Keep it playful. You don't want to antagonize him. Just make it clear that you're not interested in his woe-is-me litany!

It's always a relief to vent with an ally.

Finding the Perfect, Long Lasting Valentine's Day Gift

Post contributed by Leonard Phelps

Yikes! It seems like no sooner do I get the Christmas stuff put away, and it is already time to start shopping for a Valentine's present. I like to make the Valentine's presents I give to be special and thoughtful. I typically will start thinking about what my loved ones would really appreciate long before the day approaches. I strive to find something that will last for years to come and will always serve as a reminder of who gave it to them.

This year, I have several Valentines on my list. I have a few ideas about what I would like, but will need to browse through a couple of stores to find the perfect gift. Before I head out on my Valentine's Day shopping expedition, I will set my home security alarm (deals HOME SECURITY).

I prefer to do my shopping at specialty stores that offer engraving on a variety of knick knacks and jewelry pieces. I have had the best luck finding these types of shops at malls. Engraving can help remind even the most forgetful person about who gave them a particular trinket. I find it is best to combine beautiful with practical. Pens, paper weights and frames are just some of the things that are seen or used regularly that can be engraved with a special message or date.

How to Rent Better Movies

Choosing movies is always a pleasure. Although nothing can still beat watching a movie in dark, crowded theaters, have you tried accessing a wide variety of films at home?

Buying a reference book that gives short, comprehensive descriptions of films and costs the same as 3-4 bad rentals instead of relying fully on Netflix's recommendations.

Search online what retrospectives are playing, then watch few of your choices at home. Series are often arranged by director or lead actor, one fun way to watch movies.

Ignore award-show hype. Renting recently nominated or winning films will give you something to talk about at the water cooler, but sometimes Oscars are not a reliable indicator of the best movies of all time.
