There Are Probably More Than a Thousand Reasons to Give Flowers to Someone

There are so many occasions and holidays that pop up all the time that require you to participate a bit. Then there are sad events that happen that require participation too. I have always found it interesting that flowers are used for weddings as well as funerals, but I guess that is my philosophical side talking. I use one place for all the flowers delivered in Melbourne that we send out. We are very happy that the majority of the flowers we have sent have been for happy occasions to celebrate.

I like bright floral arrangements that are full of color. I also like ones that are just one or two colors. Over the years I have grown a fondness for the tropical plants in decorative pots that you can have sent too. Those can grow a long time in the container they are sent in before needing separation and repotting. Continue reading

Weight Loss with Easy Workouts

Normally I’m not much of a morning person, but after seeing a Morning Fat Melter Program review, I changed that habit and started doing light workouts in the morning. The morning is the best time of the day to start exercising, because the body can burn off extra fat better, especially when exercise is done before eating. By using this method, I can exercise while eating what I want and still keep my body looking slim. It sounds like something that people wouldn’t expect to work, but it really does, and my body is living proof of how good it is.

Before I started the workout plan, I was overweight. I was wearing plus sized outfits and was having trouble getting around, getting upstairs, getting in and out of my car, and getting out of my seat. Continue reading

I Needed a Vaping Starter Kit

I needed to find a way to stop smoking. I know that a lot of people quit because of health issues, but I honestly wasn’t concerned with that. I come from a long line of smokers, and none of them had ever had any medical issues because of their smoking. The reason I needed an alternative was simply because of the cost. It was just costing me way too much money to smoke, and it was hurting the purse strings a little too tightly. I decided to look at some Florida vape stores after a few people recommended that I try that to save some cash.

I had no idea what vaping even involved, but I was not opposed to finding out. I first researched all I could on that, and I was satisfied with what I had found out. Continue reading

I Wanted to Find out More About Life Insurance

When my cousin died unexpectedly, we were all shell shocked. She was healthy and in the prime of her life, but that didn’t matter to the drunk driver that hit her. Thankfully, she had life insurance, and that has really helped her husband and three children. He is not able to work right now because of his grief, and the insurance money is helping to pay the bills right now. That got me to thinking about myself though, which is why I contacted a Palatka insurance company to discuss life insurance options with them.

I do have a policy through my work, but it is not for much. My wife will be lucky if it covers burial expenses should something happen to me. It is just not something that either of us had thought about before because we are so young. My cousin’s death really hit me hard though, not only because I loved her but also because it made me think of my own family should something happen. Continue reading

My First Experience with Powerpoint in My New Job Title

Catching up to the learning curve of a new job can be daunting. I never had a reason to learn Powerpoint in any job I had before. Now as a company trainer, I needed to have a training curriculum ready to go by Monday morning. I needed to use a Powerpoint consultant to get my presentation ready. I had all of the images and text that I needed, but I could not compete with the Powerpoint veterans the rest of the trainers seemed to be. I needed help to make the material presentable as well as interesting and enjoyable to consume. Plus, I needed to be able to avoid the things you do not want in your presentation. I have seen some slide shows go awry with too much animation and other effects.

The Powerpoint consultant I used got my materials put together into a great presentation piece that I could run during the training seminar I was conducting. I think a couple of the other trainers were really waiting for me to bomb when it come to Powerpoint as they knew I had no experience in using it. Continue reading

This Seems Silly to Me

I ended up on this site while I was chatting with a girl I know from my computer science class, but it really sort of confused me. We were on snapchat and I was trying to get her to go out on a date. This girl is really super cute and really funny, both of which she is completely aware of. At any rate she was talking about something called a snapchat birthday filter and I had no clue at all what she meant by this. At any rate I tried to look it up and found some web pages, which apparently were charging people thirty nine dollars for some sort of background thing. Continue reading

The Best Online Retailer I’ve Found

Finding a Miami dress boutique online was a godsend for me considering I live in Wisconsin and will likely never see the city of Miami in my lifetime. I live in Milwaukee and, if truth be told, I’ll likely never see any of the big fashion centers in my lifetime. I’ll never be able to saunter into a dress boutique in a big city and look at all the amazing dresses they have lined up on the racks. Thanks to the internet, however, I don’t have to worry about that. I can look at them and order them online.

The only problem I have with online fashion boutiques is that I can’t hold the clothing in my hands nor try it on to see how it looks. I have a pretty good grasp on my body size and shape, but sometimes you just need to try something on to see what it looks like. Recently, I needed a dress for an occasion and didn’t have time to muck around trying dresses on. I had one dress that I thought I would wear, but it had a tear in it and thus needed to be replaced.

Imagine my surprise when I went online and found the exact same dress at an online site I frequent regularly. It was funny because this was a dress I didn’t buy from them previously. So I looked around and made sure they had my size and went ahead and ordered it. I can only sing their praises as they got the dress to my door in what felt like record time. Moreover, the dress was in perfect condition and fit my curvy body like a glove. I got a lot of compliments because of that dress, and I have to say I’m probably going to order from these guys many times in the future!

A Better Way to Do 3D Modeling

Engineering became easier for me when I started using the csi sap2000 program. Saying engineering became easier is a bit of a joke phrase because engineering is one of the most challenging professions in the world today. I have been in the business for about ten years and I must say that every project I have been involved in presents its own challenges. I breezed through engineering school without much difficulty, but every project in the work world has been unique and challenging. It’s part of what make being an engineer such a rewarding career. You’ve got to be smart in this profession.

Of course, smarts will only take you so far. You also need the best tools at your disposal. Continue reading

Life is Perfect Here in Colorado

I knew it would not take me long to find the home I wanted for my family because of the realtor that was working with me. She has such a good reputation in the industry, and we are not really that hard to please. There were a few things I wanted to make sure of, and that was having a certain number of bedrooms and baths in the house we chose. I wanted at least five bedrooms with a minimum of six baths. The realtor who sells luxury real estate in Cherry Hills Co told me that shouldn’t be a problem finding since so many people want a lot of bathrooms in their homes now.

I have three children, and I wanted them to each have their own bedroom and bath. Continue reading

The Meters Look Bigger in Person

I know someone who is into adventure and extreme sports, and it seems like every week he’s always looking for new ways to push himself and do something extraordinary. One week he wanted to go diving with the sharks, and the next week he wanted to jump out of an airplane without a parachute and land in a pile of boxes, because he had saw someone else do it and survive. Often he invites me to do crazy things with him, but I decline. One day he asked me how tall is Everest, because he wanted to climb the mountain, and wanted me to do it with him.

At first, I declined my friend’s offer to climb with him, but later I reconsidered. Everest is the tallest mountain in the world, standing over 8,000 meters. Many people have climbed the mountain, but not all of them reach the top. To be able to touch the top of Everest would be a monumental achievement, even for someone who has no interest in extreme sports or adventure. I agreed to go with my friend, under the condition that he gets a guide to come with us so we don’t get lost and freeze to death on the mountain.

On the day my friend and I climbed the mountain, we were shaking in our boots, and it wasn’t because of the cold weather. We were scared that we weren’t going to make it. I had never seen my friend this scared. For someone who likes to do crazy things and put his life at risk, he sure wasn’t feeling risky that day. We slowly made our way up the mountain, taking breaks to catch our breath, eat, and rest. There were times when I thought we wouldn’t make it, but we soldiered on and made it to the top.
