Let's Watch The Sunset and Sun Rise And Take Good PicturesSunset is one of the best times of day to move from working and dealing with after school to centering on relaxation and the next days focus. Are you stressed? Sad? In a bad mood? Need a new perspective? Maybe, you should try watching the sunrise one day before you start your day, or maybe, catch the sunset before you start working on your homework. You never know what watching the sunset and sunrise can do to you both mentally and physically. It has actually been proven to help fight against stress, depression, and anxiety, putting you in a better mood throughout the day. Such a simple, free, and lovely treasure that many of us take for granted. How To Take a Good Sunset Photo To take a good sunset photo, you need the perfect exposure. You should make sure your lens is clean and ideally, you should use a tripod. It’s a good idea to shoot in RAW format for post-production and sunsets often look better when you shoot in wide, and then zoom in. Put your camera in Aperture Priority mode (usually an A on the settings dial), and set it to a high number. Keep the ISO as low as possible (usually 100 – 200) and watch the shutter speed. Sometimes bracketed exposures can help with getting the perfect colors and lightness in a sunset photo. This setting can be an auto HDR, but its best to do it manually in post-production. Lastly, when taking sunset photos it’s important to be patient. Oftentimes the best sunset photos are taken after the sun has disappeared. Sunset photographers have all had this happen to them. They start packing up their gear and suddenly the sky lights up in brilliant oranges and reds, forcing them to rush to get set up again. Take your time and never pack up your gear until the sky is dark! Now let’s get started taking the best sunset pictures we can! You will never see the same sunset or sunrise. Every day the colors lay a little differently. That, to me, is pretty incredible. You never will get bored of watching, because it's always a different show. Sunset Quote “Scattered with poppies, the golden-green waves of the cornfields faded. The red sun seemed to tip one end of a pair of scales below the horizon, and simultaneously to lift an orange moon at the other. Only two days off the full, it rose behind a wood, swiftly losing its flush as it floated up, until the wheat loomed out of the twilight like a metallic and prickly sea.”― Patrick Leigh Fermor, Between the Woods and the Water The colors the sun creates against the sky can be truly amazing. Take advantage of the painting it gives you and appreciate it. Not to mention, it makes for pretty fantastic pictures. Snap a few photos, but remember to also be present with the sunset/sunrise, you won't regret it. Keep reading for some important picture-taking tips. Then grab your camera and start shooting your way to great pictures. Look your subject in the eye Use a plain background Use flash outdoors Move in close Move it from the middle Lock the focus Know your flash’s range Watch the light Take some vertical pictures Be a picture director Once you’ve learnt basic composition techniques, such as the rule of thirds and the use of leading lines, you start to look at everything differently. You’ll start seeing and thinking about how you might frame a photo, even when you haven’t got a camera on you. We would really appreciate a quick productive comment on this blog. It really makes us feel good and is our motivation to continue. Keywebco Clickable Feed Below.

Salad Recipes With A Copy Cat Olive Garden SaladI really enjoy a fresh and tasty garden salad. Actually most salads I enjoy I try to make different combinations of dressings and Lettuce types. It's important to eat a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, in as many different colors as possible. Combining them in a salad is both easy and delicious! Loaded with vitamins and minerals, eating a salad a day will also increase the level of powerful antioxidants in your blood. Eating salads is a super-convenient way to work in a couple of servings of vegetables and/or fruit. Green salads are on the menu of almost every restaurant. You can even buy a side salad (with Romaine lettuce, carrots and tomatoes, available with fat-free or reduced-calorie salad dressing) for a buck at many fast food chains these days. And you can make a green salad at home in 5 minutes, armed with a bag of pre-washed salad greens, a few carrots or other veggies, and a bottle of light salad dressing. The findings of this study are consistent with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans that recommend increasing vegetable and fruit intake and eating a variety of vegetables, especially dark-green and red and orange vegetables and beans and peas. Salads are a great way to meet your daily recommendation for fruits and vegetables. According to the study: Eating a salad a day is directly correlated with higher nutrient levels. Adding salad dressing to a salad increases the absorption of certain nutrients being consumed. The fat in salad dressing helps absorb key nutrients such as lycopene and alpha- and beta-carotene. People who eat salads, salad dressing, and raw vegetables are more likely to meet recommended intakes for vitamins C, E and folic acid. High fruit and vegetable consumption has also been associated with lower rates of pre-menopausal bone loss in women. Consumption of as little as one serving of salad or raw vegetables per day is significantly associated with the likelihood of meeting the recommended nutrient intakes of each of vitamins A, E, B6, and folic acid. *The American Dietetic Association is now known as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Below are some recipes that I truly enjoy. <div><small><a href=

DIY Face Masks For Great ResultsFace masks are a wonderful way to treat your skin to fresh ingredients that’ll leave you looking and feeling radiant. So how do you choose the perfect one? As with all our products, our face masks are made with effects in mind—not cookie-cutter skin types. So, picking your face mask is as simple as considering how you’d like your skin to feel, then seeking out the products and ingredients that will get you there. Although there is no independent evidence that mud masks, clay masks, cream masks, or sheet masks provide any long lasting benefit to the skin, they can be hydrating, soothing and provide some keratolytic/exfoliant effect — if only in the act of removing them. Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores. They're also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Facial masks should be used in the midst of the skin care routine. That means you should already be done with the cleansing and exfoliation. You should let the mask stay on your face for approximately 10 to 15 minutes. You will usually know it is done when it feels dry – but it depends on the type of mask you will use. Many people are confused on how often to usea face mask, but in general you should mask1-3 times per week. However, certain maskscan be used every day, like Ultra-Rich CremeTherapy. You can use your face maskmorning or night – it completely depends on your schedule and your personal preferences. Most leave-on masks are hydrating formulas, so you might be able to skip applying your regular nighttime moisturizer—but you'll want to apply the mask and your face moisturizer if you have very dry skin. Sheet masks should be applied before the rest of your skincare routine. For oily or acne-prone skin: bentonite clay & green tea mask Make the mask: Steep 1 cup of green tea at least 5 minutes. Scoop 2 tablespoons of tea into a bowl (be careful if the tea is still hot). Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of Epsom salts in the tea in the bowl. Mix in about 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay and stir until you have a smooth paste. Spread the paste evenly over your skin. You can enjoy the remaining cup of tea as you relax with your mask. Wait 10 to 15 minutes before removing it with warm water. For sensitive skin: cucumber-honey-tea mask Make the mask: Cut a baby cucumber into very thin slices and set aside. In a small pot, steep 1 cup of black tea for at least 5 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and stir until dissolved. Add the cucumber slices. If desired, add one or two drops of essential oil. Let the cucumber soak for at least 10 minutes. Scoop the cucumber from the pot and place slices evenly over your face. Leave the slices on for 10 to 20 minutes before removing. Rinse your face with warm water. <div><small><a href=

Scalloped Potatoes Recipes You Will LoveDo you enjoy a good helping of Scalloped Potatoes? Below are a few recipes and tips. Go for Russet potatoes or Yukon Golds. Russets have the most starch and make the creamiest sauce, but Yukon tends to hold their shape a little better (although your sauce will be slightly milkier). Cut the potatoes to between 1/8- and 1/4-inch thick. If you have a dark, cool closet away from the heat of the kitchen, store them there. Also, it's best to take them out of the plastic bag and put them in a basket or breathable cotton sack. And finally, make sure they are totally dry before storing long-term. Damp potatoes will rot or sprout faster. You can make potatoes au gratin in advance and then reheat them on the stove, in the oven or in the microwave, making it easier to plan and cook for a large dinner. If raw, once the potato is cut you can store in the refrigerator, covered with water for 12-24 hours. Be sure to keep submerged in water to prevent slices from turning gray or brown. Add a tablespoon of white wine vinegar or concentrated lemon juice to a gallon of water to help keep the potatoes from turning dark. SCALLOPED POTATOESServes 8 There are almost no recipes for Scalloped Potatoes in my cookbooks and food textbooks. The reason: There is no classic recipe. You can do whatever you want. So I decided to make Scalloped Potatoes that are rich in cheese. I used mild cheddar, but you can use any cheese you prefer. With no traditional recipe, you are free to experiment.Ingredients:21⁄4 pounds (1kg) potatoes, thinly sliced 3 tablespoons butter2 tablespoons flour11⁄2 cups (~350ml) milk or cream11⁄2 cups (4 oz./113g) shredded cheddar cheese Salt & pepper to tasteOptional (to be added to the white sauce): The leaves from a few sprigs fresh thyme Chopped fresh Italian parsley2 cloves garlic, mincedAny ingredients of your choosingDirections:Slice the potatoes about 1/8 inch (3mm) thin and place in a large bowl of cold water. Set aside. Butter a shallow baking dish.Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and then add the flour. Mix until combined. Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute. This is a “white roux”.Add the milk or cream and whisk until blended to create a “white sauce” (one of the “mother sauces”). If thin, the sauce can be cooked over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes.Remove from the heat and add two thirds (1 cup) of the shredded cheese and stir until the cheese melts and is thoroughly blended into the sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Add other herbs you like. Set aside.Heat your oven to 400°F (200°C) with a rack in the upper third.Drain the sliced potatoes thoroughly. Arrange a layer in the bottom of the baking dish, using about a third of the potatoes, and then spoon about half the cheese sauce over the slices, spreading evenly. Arrange a second layer of potatoes, like the first, and cover with the remaining sauce. Finish the dish by arranging the remaining potato slices in a scalloped pattern on top (you might not use all the potatoes, depending on the size of the baking dish). Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top, distributing evenly.Bake on the upper rack for 50 to 60 minutes, until the potatoes in the center are tender and the cheese is browned on top. Start watching the dish closely after about 30 minutes. If the cheese appears to be browning too rapidly, cover the dish lightly with a sheet of aluminum foil.Remove from the oven and allow to rest about 10 minutes, and then serve. <div><small><a href=

People watching it’s called. Don’t you find the amazing variety of faces, fashions and just the way people walk around so interesting? You can look at people in a crowd and make up little stories about each person you see, and what they’re off to do. Or you can just look at them and enjoy the fact that you’re a part of this greater humanity. Bake a loaf of homemade bread. You probably have everything you need to make a loaf of bread in your kitchen right now (except for maybe the yeast – in which case you can make a quick beer bread with just four ingredients). Anyone can do it, and the fresh-baked bread comes out delicious. Here’s a detailed, visual guide to baking a simple loaf of bread with minimal ingredients or complexity. Have a yard sale. Hosting a yard sale or garage sale is a great way to spend a money-free weekend — and a potentially lucrative one at that. Not only does it give you an excuse to clean out unwanted clutter from your home, it’s something the whole family can participate in, offering an entire weekend’s worth of entertainment and activity (and a nice little wad of money at the end to boot). Yard sales are a great way to turn excess clutter into extra cash, and that’s a win for everyone involved. This option won’t cost a dime. In fact, you could even make money at your yard sale. Gather up unwanted clothes, furniture and other items from your home. Then, set up a few tables and invite the neighborhood to shop. You’ll get rid of clutter in an environmentally friendly way. Consider that a win-win. Listen to some podcasts. Podcasts are perhaps the best free entertainment out there: top-notch audio programs available to you for free. All your life, you may have never realised how expensive being bored really is. Personally, as long as I got some gadgets around I’m never really that bored but I am human and I do suffer from boredom sometimes., Read – Catch up on some reading. If you don’t have any books to read, download the free kindle software from Amazon and find free books on the Kindle store. Dive into a new book or revisit an old favorite. If nothing on your bookshelf strikes your fancy, take a trip to the library, swap titles with a friend or check the used and sale sections at your local bookstore. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can choose from a collection of books, magazines and comics to download for free. Catch a movie Use your public library card to check out a DVD from your neighborhood branch or stream a free movie from a website like Hoopla Digital. Or, browse the film selection on a reputable free streaming site or a streaming service you already subscribe to, such as Netflix. Use your library card to check out a DVD or stream a free movie from a website like Hoopla Digital. It’s possible to go to the theater and keep costs in check, too. Join a loyalty program or attend a matinee to help save on movie tickets. “If you’re not comfortable enough with yourself or with your own truth when entering a relationship, then you’re not ready for that relationship.”– Steve Maraboli “We have all a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.”– Jane Austen “Without self knowledge, without understanding the working and functions of his machine, man cannot be free, he cannot govern himself and he will always remain a slave.”– G.I. Gurdijieff “A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there.”– Meister Eckhart Indulge in some DIY It can be for any reason, from redecorating your home with the empty mason jars in the kitchen cabinet to creating an amateur artwork for your bedroom and making a scrapbook of old memories. Raid the App Store – A super fun thing I do when I get bored is browse the app store for the hottest new apps. My favourite free app right now is Clumsy Ninja. I usually get lost downloading and trying out the free apps. An hour could go by without even realising it! Visit Museums – Many cities and colleges have free educational attractions, such as museums or zoos. Make an effort to enjoy these free attractions. If your community doesn’t have free zoos or museums, call them and ask about opportunities for “free to the public” exhibits or “free days” — many museums open their doors for free or charge “pay what you can” admission one day a week. You can even ask whether they issue free passes upon request. Local libraries sometimes loan out museum passes for the day as well. You’ll often find there are many opportunities to enjoy museums, zoos, and science centers without any cost at all. In Washington, D.C., all Smithsonian museums and the zoo offer free admission year round. Other institutions have “pay what you wish” policies — which let you set the price — and some have discounts for students, senior citizens or military members. And if you’re a Bank of America customer, your credit or debit card could be your ticket. The bank’s “Museum on Us” program offers free general admission to over 200 participating locations nationwide on the first full weekend of every month. If you have a Bank of America or Merrill Lynch credit or debit card, you can get a free ticket on the first Saturday of every month to 150 participating museums (in 31 states). Check out the Bank of America Museums on Usprogram for more details. Also check with museums in your hometown to see if they offer any freebies for kids. Start a home business – Unlike what many people may think. You can actually start a business with 0 capital. All it takes is some effort to get the ball rolling. Gardening – I really enjoy planting spices and herbs but don’t think I have a garden; I live in a very tiny apartment. You don’t actually need a garden. You can use pots, plastic cups, foil dishes, whatever. FYI: Some easy to grow produce are garlic, basil, onions & chilli peppers! Visit the farmers market Take in the sights, sounds, tastes and smells at your local farmers market. Despite the expensive reputation, you can sometimes find locally grown fruits and vegetables for cheaper, or in larger quantities, than you would at the grocery store. Stroll through the stalls, talk with vendors and sample the offerings. Broke? Some great information below! <div><small><a href=

Good Routine For Mornings With TipsMorning routines are a vital part of living a successful life. There’s something effective about repeating the same positive habits every single day.Whereas most people wake up in “reaction mode” by checking their email or logging into Facebook, you can complete a series of actions that will have a positive impact on the rest of the day.Unfortunately, one of the biggest challenges to building a morning routine is knowing what habits to pick. There are hundreds of options. So, use these habits that are done by most successful people. They do them when they first get up in the morning.In this article, I will review habits that will improve your day. WEAR A STEP- TRACKING DEVICE Wearing a step-tracking device can have an amazing impact on your physical fitness. If you’re not familiar with them, step trackers are small devices or watches that track your total steps and floors climbed every day.At first glance, “putting on a step-tracking device” might seem like an inconsequential habit. But there are a surprising number of people who buy these devices and never wear them. If you start each day by clipping on this device, you’ll take that crucial first step to build the exercise habit. And when you constantly wear this device, you’ll find reasons to get more movement throughout the day. This is another super simple habit. When you wake up in the morning, put on your step-tracking device. This should be the first action you complete to start the day.If you don’t have a step tracker, they come in many types and most are not costly. FILL A 32-OUNCE WATER BOTTLE Mild dehydration can cause headaches and fatigue, affect your concentration, impair short-term memory, and impede mental function. If you want to be at your most productive, it’s important for your brain to be firing on all cylinders. Therefore, you should make sure you are sufficiently hydrated before starting work.Fill a thirty-two-ounce bottle and drink it over the next few hours.Either warm or cold water is fine—there are health benefits to both, so pick whichever you prefer. If you find plain water unpalatable, try adding ice and a squeeze of lemon.The right amount of water intake is eight eight-ounce glasses per day, a total of sixty-four ounces. This number will vary according to your weight and level of physical activity. Temperature and environmental conditions affect this also. Keep it simple by filling up your bottle twice a day and committing to drinking the entire thing. That should be enough to give you a basic level of hydration. COMPLETE A 7-15 MINUTE WORKOUT Okay, let me get one point out of the way before we talk about the benefits of this small action. If you live a completely sedentary lifestyle, then completing a seven-minute daily workout is a good step in the right direction.All that said, a great way to start or end your day is to use an app like 7 Minute Workout, which acts like a personal trainer that guides you through a 12-exercise total-body workout. Obviously, it only takes you seven minutes to complete. As you master that raise it to 15 minutes if so inclined. This is another simple habit. Just start up the app and complete the recommended exercises. If not an app use any program you like. Just do one. You should get a decent amount of exercise that’s better than what most people do during their day. PREPARE A SMOOTHIE DRINK Need a quick pick-me-up? Try making an antioxidant smoothie. These delicious drinks contain essential vitamins and minerals, so drinking one in the morning can give you energy that will last for many hours.There are a lot of smoothie recipes on the Internet, Keywebco has some too. I recommend mixing up different recipes that include proteins, fruits, vegetables, potassium, and antioxidants. MEDITATE Meditation helps you maintain focus on one thing (such as your breathing or the sounds of the ocean) and block out any other distractions. It has been proven to have numerous benefits, including reduced stress, improved creativity, better focus, and improved memory.Some people meditate for hours on end, while others just take a few minutes out of their mornings. I suggest you start by meditating for five minutes. Find a quiet place that’s free from distractions and set a timer for five minutes. Start by taking a deep breath and releasing the tension from your diaphragm. Stretch your muscles so you stay comfortable while you focus inward. Focus on clearing your mind and thinking about the present moment.It’s natural to experience frustration the first few times you meditate. If this happens to you, focus on your breathing and let your feelings of frustration dissipate. Focus on your body parts so you know when the meditation starts to take hold.If you have trouble focusing, then try the Calm or Headspace apps, which provide specific prompts that you can use to create a relaxed state of mind. PRACTICE GRATITUDE It’s easy to think that being grateful for what you have in life is something you do for other people. But the main benefit is an internal one. Not only does it make you feel better, but it also helps you become a better person because you’ll gain more appreciation for what you already have.There are many benefits of building the gratitude habit. Here are a few to consider:Gratitude makes us happier.Gratitude helps you reach your goals. Gratitude makes you a more likable person. Gratitude will help you succeed in your career.Keeping a gratitude list doesn’t need to be a formal process. You can write it online, in a journal, or even on a spare scrap of paper. What’s important is to think about what (and who) you’re thankful for and then write it down somewhere.To get started, Use this four-step process:1. Be Consistent: Choose a number of items to be grateful for every day and then stick to this format. The key thing is to have a number in your mind ahead of time.2. Be Specific: Take time to clearly describe why you’re grateful for a person, event, or item.3. Share your thoughts: Being grateful to yourself is only half of the job, then express this gratitude to the people who made it happen.4. Find the good in the bad: Use this habit to look for a positive outcome or an important lesson you learned. READ A CHAPTER IN A BOOK Reading is a simple task that can provide youwith benefits such as:Giving your mind a workout as you learn something new or escape into a different world.Improving your concentration as you singularly focus on one activity.Reducing stress and lowering blood pressure.In my opinion, reading is a leisure habit that should be enjoyed throughout the day, but it can also provide a mental break between two difficult tasks.Set aside 5 to 10 minutes to read first thing in the morning. A chapter is a perfect length because it is long enough to complete one strategy (nonfiction) or one scene (fiction) without it disrupting your workday.If you’re struggling to find a good book, I search this way:Google: best [genre] book.Google: best [genre] book [current]If you bring a book wherever you go, then you’ll always have a way to relax for 5 to 10 minutes during a hectic workday. WRITE IN “MORNING PAGES”Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, the stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages – they are not high art. They are not even “writing.” They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind – and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand.Working through Morning Pages for ten minutes is an excellent mindfulness habit because you completely focus on putting your thoughts onto paper. It’s a way to liberate your mind from the mental chatter that can set your morning off to a negative or anxious start.If writing Morning Pages feels too unstructured for you, you can write in a journal about specific topics of your choosing or use journal prompts. Like Morning Pages, journaling brings your wandering mind to attention by actively engaging with your thoughts.Journaling can help you focus on your inner world, your goals, and even your nightly dreams. Buy a few spiral notebooks or journals in addition to quality writing pens that flow well on paper.Start by deciding where you want to write. It could be sitting in your bed, as soon as you awaken. Or you may need a shower and a cup of coffee before you are clearheaded enough to begin. Just be sure your notebook and pen are visible and readily available in your writings. Take a few deep breaths with your eyes closed, and then simply begin writing. For Morning Pages, simply write whatever comes into your head. It doesn’t need to make sense or have any particular purpose.If you decide to focus on more directed journal writing, decide on the type of journaling you wish to do. You might want to write in:A dream journalA gratitude journalA relationship journalA prayer journalOr you can even draw or doodle in your journalYou can use journal prompts that you create for yourself or that you find online. Barrie uses the prompt, “What do I need to know today?” Then she waits for ideas or thoughts to arise that she writes down in her journal.You can be as creative or simple as you wish with your Morning Pages or journaling. The purpose is to spend ten mindful minutes with pen in hand, writing down the contents of your mind—whether the thoughts are directed or stream of consciousness.Once the ten minutes is up, finish the sentence you are writing or the thought you want to capture and close your journal. Save what you have written to read at a later date. Allowing some time to go by before you read your journal entry can shed some additional light on the meaning of your writing. REVIEW YOUR GOALS Everybody has goals. Sadly, they get pushed off often. Goals can be set for the day, week, month, quarter, or year. My rule of thumb is to create five to seven goals per quarter (i.e., every three months), and I recommend you do the same. Quarterly goals are far enough away so that you can achieve significant outcomes. But it’s also a short enough period that you can adjust if your long-term plans change. Keep your goals in an easy-to-access place. This could be in a binder or an app like Evernote. Then, once or twice a day, take five minutes to review these goals.During this review, read each goal aloud and think about the tasks you have scheduled for that day. For each item, ask yourself, “How does this action bring me closer to one of my goals?” If you can’t come up with a good answer, then perhaps it’s a task that you should be skipped or delegated. The best strategy for planning out your day is to focus on your most important tasks (MITs) before anything else. This eliminates the problem of scheduling too many activities, and the feeling of failure when you don’t accomplish them all.Identifying three MITs ahead of time keeps you focused on priority activities. In fact, if you only complete the MITs, then you can still consider it a productive day. If you keep a list of your projects in an app (like Todoist or Evernote), then it’s easy to identify your next tasks. From this list, pick the three tasks that have the highest priority or are considered both urgent and important. Don’t work on anything else until you have completed these MITs. IDENTIFY YOUR 3MOST IMPORTANT TASKS It’s fun to learn new things on a regular basis. You could pick anything from juggling or coding to speaking a new language. Not only do these activities challenge your mind, but they can also become an enjoyable hobby that reduces your stress. That’s why you should consider practicing self-education to learn something new.And the morning is the perfect time to practice self- education. When leaving your house, you can turn on a podcast or audiobook that directly relates to the skill you’d to develop. So instead of wasting time while driving, you can use it as an opportunity to learn something new. Steps to Learn Anything, Increase Your Knowledge, and Master New Skills, I talk about a lot of ways to efficiently learn new skills. Two of the strategies that are to schedule time for deliberate practice and to research what you need to learn. Odds are, five minutes isn’t enough time for deliberate practice—but it’s perfectly adequate for researching one skill-related topic or a challenge that you’re currently facing.As an example, one of my current goals is to complete a few projects. The problem? I don’t have all the software. So, today my “practice self-education habit” was researching the specific questions to ask when buying The software.With ten minutes of research, I learned about the difference between costs and options. While this doesn’t give me an expert-level knowledge on the software, I now know the right questions to ask when I head into the social media later and ask about it.Practicing self-education is a perfect task for those longer breaks during the day, like on a drive, at lunchtime, or in the evening. This is the time when you can listen to podcasts, scan through blogs, or read books that focus on one specific, interest-related challenge. 10 DAILY HABITS THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE | Productivity + Happiness 10 things I do daily 10 Daily Habits For Highly Successful People.

How To Wash Your Dog With TipsHOW TO WASH YOUR DOG: SIMPLE TIPS & TRICKS Everybody loves a clean dog. But suggest a bath to yours and they insist they are just fine and dandy skipping it. My dog actually enjoys smelling like the offensive thing he just rolled in. Many dogs resist bath time tooth and nail if they think there is the remotest chance this strategy will let them off the hook. How often should you undertake the dreaded dog bathing routine? And can you make it any more pleasant for all parties involved, yourself included? We have answers to these questions and more; read on for bath time tips to make the ritual of dog washing as simple and painless as possible. And who knows? You and your dog might even come to enjoy it. HOW OFTEN SHOULD I BATHE MY DOG? How about now? It's really a matter of personal preference: if you want them smelling freshly scrubbed all the time, once-weekly bathing is probably sufficient. If your dog leads an active lifestyle that includes rolling in unmentionables or taking regular dips in lakes, rivers, and puddles, routine bathing is a necessity. And if your dog has skin allergies or a minor skin infection, a regular bath can help your pet avoid antibiotics. But once-monthly bathing is often enough for most dogs, and manageable for most of us who are willing to undertake the chore of dog washing at home. If nothing else, use the sniff test as the ultimate bathing barometer: when your dog stinks, they need scrubbing. Why does my dog get so nervous when I go to the groomer or veterinarian? Does your dog start “vibrating” when you walk into the groomers? Have you ever wondered why they get so nervous? My dog will do the same thing at the Vets office too. Your dog may just be suffering from dog anxiety because he knows that he is about to go through the grooming process. He may also experience some dog separation anxiety when the owners leave. However, as long as the owner is in sight, the anxiety will most likely remain. Most of the time the dogs are happy and calm within five minutes after the owners have left. BATH TIME BENEFITS: THREE EXCELLENT REASONS TO SCRUB YOUR DOG Regular bathing helps keep a dogs skin free of dirt and parasites. Bathing your dog helps dog allergies and yours. Bathing also helps If they suffer from yeast infections of the skin, dandruff, or other skin conditions. WHAT DOG WASHING AND GROOMING SUPPLIES DO I NEED? MUST-HAVE DOG BATHING SUPPLIES: A brush A favorite dog toy and some small treats for the bath resister A leash or tether to lead an unwilling dog to water A cup or bucket if there's no hose or sprayer A washcloth Cotton balls or gauze pads At least three clean towels Dog shampoo—human shampoo contains fragrances and other ingredients that can irritate a dog's skin: Choose one that smells good. Use a soap-free or moisturizing formula for weekly baths. Dog shampoo with tea tree oil is excellent for skin infections. Consult your vet about therapeutic shampoo for a specific skin problem. A single amazing, delectable treat for the end of the bath NICE-TO-HAVE DOG BATHING SUPPLIES: A detangling comb or slicker brush A tick key Small scissors for dense mats Rubber scrubbing/massaging tool Dog-formulated conditioner if you wish; this can make post-bath brushing easier on dogs with long hair Povidone-iodine to disinfect and treat skin sores; prepare a mild solution ahead of bath time Ear cleaning solution Colloidal silver if your dog has tear staining; it's widely available and safe for dogs A hairdryer if she'll tolerate it Gather your dog bathing supplies in one accessible spot near the tub or shower (or sink if she is compact), and make sure you can reach them all, including her towels—leaving a soggy dog standing in the tub while you sprint down the hall for them is a sure recipe for a watery mishap. NOW PREP YOUR DOG, YOURSELF, AND THE BATH: Take your dog for a run, a long walk, or engage in an extended, active play session with her. A bath will feel great when she's tired and hot, and she'll have less energy to resist you. Encourage To do the “doings” outside before bath time. Wear old clothing or a smock: prepare to be soaked to the bone when you bathe your dog. (You might even wind up in the tub or shower with them.) If your dog is large, consider wearing a lumbar brace to save your back during potentially awkward moments helping her into the tub. If you intend to bathe them outside, check the temperature of the water coming from the tap: it may be too chilly for your dog even on a warm day. Block the tub’s drain with a piece of steel wool to keep her hair from clogging it. Place a towel in the bottom of the sink, tub, or shower, carefully avoiding the drain: slippery footing will stress a bath-anxious dog even more. The towel provides stability. If you’re using the tub, fill it with three or four inches of lukewarm water, about the same temperature you’d use for a human infant. Use caution with big dogs in particular, who are prone to overheating. Gently detangle your dog’s coat and pick apart mats with the comb or slicker brush; use the small scissors to carefully cut out mats you can’t detangle and brush out. Quick Tip: You will never be able to detangle densely matted hair once it’s wet. Always do this when your dog is dry. Brush, brush and brush your dog some more to remove loose dirt and hair and reduce bath time shedding. Look for ticks and use the tick key to remove them. Gently place a cotton ball inside each ear if your dog will let you. They’ll help keep water out of her ears, potentially diverting a secondary bacterial ear infection. HOW TO BATHE A STINKY DOG: GETTING DOWN AND DIRTY This is an excellent time to use their favorite toy and a small treat or two to lure your dog to the bathtub. If they resist, leash your dog and gently lead them to the bath. But never use anger to motivate a dog: they hear it in your voice immediately and learn to loathe bath time. Likewise, dogs can sense when you're anticipating an ordeal. Instead, stay calm and positive, and use treats as rewards—you want a dog to associate bath time with pleasure. And bring a water toy into the tub to distract them if you think it will help. Note: Always close the door once you're in the washroom—they may escape the tub, but will at least stay confined to a smaller area. START SCRUBBING: Help your dog into the tub or shower and climb in with them if you must; leave the collar on to use as a “handle”—this is an excellent strategy to maintain control if you need it. If you have no hose or sprayer, make sure your cup or bucket is where you can reach it. Wet the dog thoroughly all over, carefully avoiding the head and face. Then begin shampooing and scrubbing at the base of the skull. Use a body bar to scrub them directly, or dispense liquid shampoo into your hands and work it into the skin and hair, creating a soapy lather. This soap “barrier” you’ve created will keep fleas and ticks from migrating towards the ears. Continue scrubbing, working down the shoulders, around to the throat and chest,  front legs, and front feet, using the rubber massaging tool or your own fingers. This should feel divine to your pet.  Quick Tip: Liquid shampoo applied directly to a long-haired dog can lodge in one spot. Diluting it with a little water ahead of time will help you distribute it more evenly. Play with your dog some during the bath, speaking in a calm, reassuring voice. Continue to reward your dog with small treats for being cooperative. Keep scrubbing, now moving to the back and belly. Apply more shampoo as needed and massage it into your dog, gradually working towards the back end. Finish with the rump, tail, and rear legs and feet. Moisten the washcloth with clean water and gently wipe the face, getting between the folds of skin if it is a wrinkly dog; do not wash the face with soap, and do not pour water over the head and face. Drain the dirty bath water; the steel wool will catch loose hair and debris. Using the cup or bucket, or sprayer or hose if you have one, begin rinsing, avoiding the head, face, and ears. Gently hold the muzzle and tip of the head upward, so the rinse water will run down the neck and away from the head and face. Rinse, rinse, and rinse, until the water runs clear. This can take some time for a long-haired dog, but it's important: soap left to dry on your dog can irritate her skin and make your dog itchy. Finally, dry your pet. If they are new to bathing or detests the hair dryer, use towels and be as thorough as you can. If they are wrinkly, make sure to dry thoroughly between the folds of the skin, including the face. Use a hair dryer on its lowest heat setting if it does not bother your pet or consider buying a dryer made for dogs: they're quicker and more efficient than yours. Importantly, don't take them outside until your dog dries completely—they still rather roll in something stinky than smell sweet. When dog grooming, there is always something to learn, whether you are an

Famous Quotes and Sayings From EverythingEveryone needs a little inspiration from time to time.Whether you’re going through a break-up, you’ve just lost your job, or you simply woke up feeling a little insecure this morning—we’ve all had one of those days.Feeding your mind inspiring quotes daily is a great practice to boost your positivity.Here is famous quotes on life, love, and success from your favorite authors, philosophers, athletes, and celebrities: “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because the reality is finally better than your dreams.” “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” “The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.” “When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” “When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” “I can’t give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.” “Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.” “I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.” “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” “Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” “Our greatest fear should not be of failure… but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” “Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” “If you want to be happy, be happy, if you want to be free be free.” “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” “Success is just a war of attrition. Sure, there’s an element of talent you should probably possess. But if you just stick around long enough, eventually something is going to happen.” “The good news is that the moment you decide that what you know is more important than what you have been taught to believe, you will have shifted gears in your quest for abundance. Success comes from within, not from without.” “It is impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement — that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.” “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.” “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between, he does what he wants to do.” “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” “The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it.” “Success? I don’t know what that word means. I’m happy. But success, that goes back to what in somebody’s eyes success means. For me, success is inner peace. That’s a good day for me.” “Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” “The person who reads too much and uses his brain too little will fall into lazy habits of thinking.” “Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last, you create what you will.” “Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.” “Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next-door neighbor. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.” “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, the just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” We hope our list of famous quotes took you out of your funk! Feel free to share your favorite with your friends!

Buckeyes Peanut Butter Balls Recipe And TipsWhat is the difference between Buckeyes and peanut butter balls? In most recipes, the only difference is how they are dipped in chocolate. Buckeyes are only partially dipped in chocolate, leaving the peanut butter showing on the top. That way they look like the nuts from the buckeye tree. Peanut Butter Balls are traditionally covered in chocolate.  Buckeyes (Peanut Butter Balls) Buckeyes, also known as Peanut Butter Balls have a smooth peanut butter center and are dipped in chocolate for a fun treat. PREP TIME 1 hour TOTAL TIME 3 hours Ingredients filling: 1 1/2 cups 12-ounce jar peanut butter 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened(1 cube) 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 3 cups confectioners sugar chocolate shell: 9 ounces semisweet chocolate chips 3 tablespoons butter Instructions In a large bowl, mix together peanut butter, butter, and vanilla until completely smooth. One cup at a time, add powdered sugar. Start by mixing with a spoon and then mix with hands to form a thick dough. For the last cup of powdered sugar, be sure to add it slowly one heaping spoonful at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Shape tablespoon sized balls and roll them smooth in between your hands. Set on parchment lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for two hours for a freeze for at least 15 minutes. In a medium-sized bowl, combine chocolate and remaining butter and microwave at half power in one-minute increments, stirring each time, until everything has melted and is completely smooth. Dip each peanut butter ball in the chocolate. You make use one or two toothpicks to help and then just smooth over any holes the toothpick leaves in the ball. Return the dipped peanut butter balls back to the parchment lined sheet and allow to set. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze until you devour them.    Tip: Dip the chilled peanut butter balls three-fourths of the way into the melted chocolate several times We suggest a Tupperware container.  The exact one for this dish is and many others can be found At ExpressoRocks. The images for this blog were all provided by ExpressoRocks  Save this seller New Tupperware items I am no longer selling for the company but have plenty of new and vintage Items We are also Downsizing our home getting ready to move into a smaller one so some of our most cherished collectibles will be for sale!  More On Buckeye Balls: Buckeye Balls are one of the best desserts because it combines two of the greatest flavors together: peanut butter and chocolate. Peanut butter buckeyes are about as simple as it gets. Just a few ingredients and clean hands create these tasty little no bake peanut butter balls that are great to set out during a holiday party or to include in a cookie tin. Did you know… The National Peanut Board estimates it takes about 540 peanuts to make a 12-ounce jar of peanut butter. That’s approximately 45 peanuts per ounce of peanut butter. If your family buys peanut butter in that large 40-ounce mega-jars, each one of those jars takes a whopping 1,800 peanuts to make! That’s your fun fact for the day! Again Why are they called Buckeye Balls? Named for their resemblance to the nut of the Ohio buckeye tree, the state tree of Ohio, this candy is particularly popular in Ohio and neighboring states. A Buckeye, for those who need explanation, looks somewhat like a bloated chestnut. A woman who married a rabid Ohio State fan in 1964, whose idea of fun was sitting in the rain and snow watching football games, was the person who created these no-bake peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate Another Buckeyes Balls Recipe Ingredients 12 oz (1 1/2 cups) creamy peanut butter 1/2 cup butter, softened 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 pound (4 cups) powdered sugar 16 ounces semisweet chocolate (you can use chocolate chips or your favorite brand of dark chocolate) 1/4 cup shaved paraffin wax. Instructions In the bowl of a mixer, beat peanut butter and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add powdered sugar and beat on low speed until smooth. This may take several minutes Roll into 1 inch balls and place in the freezer for at least 1 hour. Place the chocolate and paraffin wax in a deep bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time, stirring between intervals, until melted. (you can also use a double boiler or chocolate melting pot to melt the chocolate). Dip the chilled peanut butter balls three-fourths of the way into the melted chocolate and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet until chocolate is set. Store in the fridge or the freezer.  We would really appreciate a quick productive comment on this blog.

The superpower of podcasts Podcasts can perform so many functions: They can educate. They can entertain. They can inform. They can inspire. They can garner laughs. They can gather tears. But there is one grand function podcasts perform that arch above all of these and more. And it is the single most important reason why you should seriously consider starting a podcast. Podcasts connect. They connect content creators with content consumers, and they do it in a way that cannot be duplicated by any other content medium. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, podcast “is a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet”.To put it simply, it’s a spoken form of entertainment, providing a scientific explanation of certain topics, or analyzing and commenting on a topic connected to different fields of speaker’s expertise. However, creating a good, successful podcast which people will enjoy may not be easy. Of course, it doesn’t require to have a degree in podcast making or journalism but it’s good to know the basic rules of a valuable and interesting podcast. And since Keywebco has recently launched a series of podcast series called The Tip Whisperer, it’s worth to bring our audience closer to the idea of a podcast. It’s not difficult to do a podcast. What’s hard is getting people to listen to it. I’m not going to mislead anybody, there are a lot of podcasts out there. What anyone has to do to get anyone to listen to it, who knows? I don’t know. Before you were chosen by a network or a label or a comedy club and given an opportunity, here it all rests with you and how you find your way out of the tremendous pile of stuff. That’s the trick. I think that once you start having big ideas about how much money you’re going to make from your podcast, or how you’re going to get this or that out there or what needs to happen and a lot of energy goes into that, it sort of amplifies the possibilities for disappointment. A successful podcast requires precise components, both external and internal. And these comprise of a few specific elements. And every host of a podcast should pay attention to all of them. And it doesn’t matter if you’re an expert or a beginner. The secret to podcast success is sticking with it and making it fun for yourself. The podcasts that keep my attention are those where I can feel the hosts and guests are enjoying themselves or are really passionate about the subject matter. The connective tissue between storytelling, advice, and comedy is passion. The thing that will undoubtedly make the work easier is the below tips for good podcasts: Equipment Good equipment is the number one rule in making a good podcast. It’s worth to invest in special tools for creating audio content such as microphone, headphones, and software with which you will be able to work on your material.Be an expert If you don’t know what you’ll be talking about, you’ll get lost and confused. It’s good to talk about topics and issues you are good at and have a wide knowledge. Otherwise, you’ll sound unprofessional and people won’t enjoy listening to you. And if it happens that you’ll know that during the particular episode you’ll talk about something different than usual, make good research to avoid embarrassment. If the podcast is recorded, you can always add or cut out parts but when it’s life, it may not be that easy.Know your audience You should know who you want your audience to be. Project managers, students, or maybe cat lovers? It is a priority to aim your content at a particular group of people. By doing so, there is a higher chance of gaining fans and faithful listeners. It is also good to know what people expect from you.Know your guests.Know who you talk to. Make research before the podcast and know all the details about your guest. You don’t want to mispronounce his or her name. You can always ask about the things you should know about the person your interviewing and make everything clear.The length.A successful podcast should have a proper length. One of the data collected podcast hosting service Omny Studio collected data which showed that the longer the podcast, the less likely it was that the listeners would the entire audio.Thus, don’t make the podcast too long because the audience will get bored. But it also doesn’t mean that it should last only 5 minutes. The average length of a podcast should be between 15 to 30 minutes. Engage.Don’t just sit there and read questions to your guest. Be active and try to go with the flow. Follow your intuition and ask anything that’s connected with the topic but seems interesting. The best podcasts are often those with spontaneous questions. Of course, not everyone will want to engage. Some people may not be as open as others and it can be difficult to create an engaging atmosphere, even if you try hard.Listen.Be an active listener. People will enjoy talking with you if they see you are interested in what they have to say. A good host should naturally possess these skills and be open not only to the guest but also to the audience and listen to its needs.Plan.Be prepared. Of course, you don’t need to have every second planned but it is good to know, more or less, where you want to go with your interview. Prepare a set of questions or topic you’d like to cover and give them to your guest before the podcast. Also, be consistent when it comes to publishing your content. Have one day a week at which you will publish your podcasts and try to do it on a regular basis.Be enthusiastic.Podcasts are fun! You can learn lots of new things from your people, especially if they are famous influencers from the world of business. People will enjoy your podcasts as much as you enjoy them. And if the audience knows you’re happy about what you do, they will be waiting for your material with impatience.Practice.Don’t give, especially when you’re a beginner! Sometimes it may take days, weeks, or even months to master the art of making a good podcast. But the more you practice and record the interviews, the more experience you get. Podcasting is a great technology. It’s a medium that anyone can do and you can just throw your hat into the ring. But getting people to it, that is just as hard as anything else you can create and put out in the world. But with podcasting, you don’t have much to lose. Just temper your expectations and try to create what you want to create. Figure out how to get people to hear it and like it. Don’t think that you necessarily have the million-dollar idea or that everything is going to turn around. Just do the best that you can do and try to realize your vision and see if other people like it. If they don’t, that’s on them. When you’re starting a podcast, think about where you want the show to end up and what you can do to get yourself to that point. Think about who you want involved in your show and what kind of quality control you want to put on it. There is so much benefit in embracing other podcasts, other people who make podcasts. If you listen to people who make other shows, if you engage with people who make other shows, you can learn so much about what you want to do with your own show. our show is eCom Tips Podcast This is the opening of our eCom Tips Podcast Show Keywebco https://anchor.fm/roger-keyserling This is a series within eCom Tips called The Tip Whisperer.

15 Picnic Foods And Great Sandwich RecipesI Love A Good Picnic and a large part of the reason why is the great food. It can be a very lowcost food in many cases. 15 Favorite Picnic Foods: German Potato Salad — Potatoes are very inexpensive. Season boiled potatoes with white wine vinegar, olive oil, parsley, and bits of bacon. Chill overnight, and serve cold. Veggies and Dip — Your best cheap options here include carrots and celery with homemade ranch dip. Pasta Salad — There are all sorts of variations on this. Our favorite is the tri-colored pasta with Italian salad dressing, halved cherry tomatoes, and black olives. Hot Dogs — Hot Dogs are also very inexpensive, and they are a picnic/BBQ classic. Deviled Eggs — Eggs are a good, cheap source of protein, and deviled eggs are an easy picnic food to prepare. Fresh Fruit — Our favorites include watermelon, apples, grapes, and strawberries. Corn on the Cob — Very inexpensive. We break the cobs in half so they stretch even further. Many times the kids don’t eat an entire ear of corn. Baked Beans — Beans are also cheap food, and canned baked beans are frequently on sale during the summer months. Jell-O — I have purchased Jell-O for as little as $0.25 a box. We love to make parfaits with alternating scoops of red and blue Jell-O topped with whipped cream and a cherry. Iced Tea/Lemonade — Skip the soda, and opt for ice water, iced sun tea or homemade lemonade instead. Rotisserie Chicken — For around $6.00, a rotisserie chicken can be a real bargain. Serve cold for a picnic, and save leftovers to make chicken salad or stock for soup. Cheese and Crackers — A store like Big Lots has good deals on chips or crackers. Opt for hard cheeses that hold up better in the heat. Garden Salad — Iceberg lettuce, a diced up tomato, shredded carrots, and a sliced cucumber make for a quick, easy, and cheap garden salad. Top with red wine vinegar and olive oil. BLT Sandwiches — Pack sliced bread, cooked bacon, lettuce, and sliced tomato for people to build their own BLT sandwiches. Waldorf Salad — This is one of our summertime favorites. Pressed Grilled Chicken Salad Sandwiches INGREDIENTS 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil 2 tsp. curry powder kosher salt 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs. total) 2 tbsp. sweet mango chutney 4 tsp. fresh lemon juice 1/4 c. mayonnaise 2 stalks celery, finely chopped 2 scallions, finely chopped 1/2 c. red grapes, quartered 1 (1 1/2-lb.) loaf crusty bread 2 c. baby spinach DIRECTIONS Heat grill to medium-high. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, curry, and 1⁄2 teaspoon salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. In a small bowl, combine chutney and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Grill chicken until cooked through, 6 to 7 minutes per side, basting with the chutney mixture during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Cut each breast in half lengthwise, then slice 1⁄4

Grilling Tips And Awesome RecipesThe heart of grilling lies in grilling techniques. What separates the master grillers from the masses is that the experts understand how to manage their grill. Sure, recipes are important, but techniques matter most. Thus, here are the 10 essentials for better grilling. Follow these tips and you will become a true BBQ master. This information was taken from Weber, a manufacturer of grills. 1. Preheat the Grill Preheat your grill with the lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes. With all the coals glowing red, or all the gas burners on high, the temperature under the lid should reach 500F. The heat loosens any bits and pieces of food hanging onto the grate, making it easy to brush them off. Preheating your grill also helps prevent food from sticking to the grate, and gets the grate hot enough to sear properly. 2. Keep it Clean When bits of food have stuck to your cooking grate, and the grate is hot, clean it with a stainless steel brush. This step is not only for cleanliness. It also prevents your food from sticking.  Note: Replace brush if any loose bristles are found on cooking grates or brush. 3. Oil the Food, Not the Grate Oil prevents food from sticking. It adds flavor and moisture, too. Lightly brushing or spraying the food with oil works better than brushing the grate.  4. Keep the Lid Down Here are 4 important reasons why the lid should be closed as much as possible.1. It keeps the grates hot enough to sear the food.2. It speeds up the cooking time and prevents the food from drying out.3. It traps the smokiness that develops when fat and juices vaporize in the grill.4. It prevents flare-ups by limiting oxygen. 5. Time and Temperature By monitoring your time and temperature you avoid overcooking your food. Use a timer! If you are grilling in a colder climate or in a higher altitude, the cooking times will be longer. If the wind is blowing hard, it will lower a gas grill's temperature and raise a charcoal grill's temperature. 6. Know When to Be Direct, Know When to be Indirect Direct heat (when the fire is directly below the food) is best for relatively small, tender pieces of food that cook in 20 minutes or less. Indirect heat (when the fire is on either side of the food) is best for larger, tougher cuts of meat that require more than 20 minutes of cooking. 7. Maintaining Temperatures Our grills are designed to give you complete control over the heat inside the grill.  By having a consistent, reliable heat source and proper venting, the grill can maintain low or high temperatures effectively.  The dampers on the top and bottom of the grill control the airflow inside the grill. The more air flowing into the grill, the hotter the fire will grow and the more frequently you will have to replenish it. To show the rate of your fires burn, close the top vent as much as half and keep the lid on as much as possible. The bottom vent should be left open whenever you are grilling so you don’t kill your fire. Under normal circumstances, a typical charcoal briquette fire will lose about 100˚F of heat over 40 to 60 minutes. A typical lump charcoal fire will lose heat even faster. Gas grills have individual control knobs so that you can easily regulate the heat and create different grilling zones easily. You can easily maintain heat levels as low as 200˚F to over 550˚F easily and shift from direct to indirect in minutes. 8. Tame the Flame Too many flare-ups can burn your food. Keep the lid on as much as possible. This limits the amount of oxygen inside the grill, which will help extinguish any flare-ups. If the flames are getting out of control, move the food over indirect heat temporarily, until they die down. Then move the food back. 9. Caramelization is Key One of the biggest reasons for the popularity of grilled food is its seared taste. To develop this taste for maximum effect, use the right level of heat and resist the temptation to turn food often. Your patience will allow for caramelization or browning. That creates literally hundreds of flavors and aromas. As a general rule, turn food only once. 10. Lighter Fluid: No Way! It's a liquid product that evaporates. Who wants that, and its foul chemical fumes under their food? Chimney starters and lighter cubes are much cleaner and much more effective.  Thank you Jeff Harves for these great images!

Potato Side Dish Poll And RecipesWatch the video and choose your favorite potato side dish.    Homestyle Potato Chips Making homestyle potato chips is fun and easy. Guaranteed they won't last long! A food processor with a slicing attachment is very helpful. Experiment with the thickness; you may like them thicker or thinner. I like to use olive oil because it has less trans fats, but you can use safflower, corn, or peanut oil as well as vegetable oil. Ingredients 4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced paper-thin 3 tablespoons salt 1-quart oil for deep frying Directions Place potato slices into a large bowl of cold water as you slice. Drain, and rinse, then refill the bowl with water, and add the salt. Let the potatoes soak in the salty water for at least 30 minutes. Drain, then rinse and drain again. Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry potato slices in small batches. Once they start turning golden, remove and drain on paper towels. Continue until all of the slices are fried. Season with additional salt if desired. Classic Hash Browns Ingredients 2 russet potatoes, peeled 3 tablespoons clarified butter salt and ground black pepper to taste 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste 1 pinch paprika, or to taste Directions Shred potatoes into a large bowl filled with cold water. Stir until water is cloudy, drain, and cover potatoes again with fresh cold water. Stir again to dissolve excess starch. Drain potatoes well, pat dry with paper towels and squeeze out any excess moisture. Heat clarified butter in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Sprinkle shredded potatoes into the hot butter and season with salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika. Cook potatoes until brown crust forms on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Continue to cook and stir until potatoes are browned all over about 5 more minutes. Homemade Tater Tots Ingredients 2 russet potatoes, peeled 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon salt 1 teaspoon seasoned pepper 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 2 cups of peanut oil Directions Place potatoes in a pot; add cold water until potatoes are covered by 1 inch. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer until potatoes are softened, about 10 minutes; drain. Cool until easily handled, 10 to 15 minutes. Shred potatoes into thin strips with a box grater; drain excess water. Place shredded potato into a large mixing bowl. Stir parsley, flour, salt, seasoned pepper, and onion powder into the potatoes until combined. Shape potato mixture into potato nuggets. Heat peanut oil in a deep-fryer or large stockpot to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place potato nuggets in the fryer, 5 to 10 at a time. Cook until golden brown and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Perfect Baked Potato Ingredients 1 medium baking potato 1 teaspoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons butter 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese Directions Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

“Written By A Cop” Posted On Facebook I was surfing Facebook and I ran across this Facebook post and it suggested that we share the story I thought that was a very good idea. WRITTEN BY A COP:Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one's life. In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation... This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!2. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,....... DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.Toss it away from you... Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.AND RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.)... DON'T DO THIS!The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your HEAD and tell you where to go.AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.If someone is in the car with a gun to your headDO NOT DRIVE OFF....... Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF!!!!Instead of gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it.As soon as the car crashes......BAILOUT AND RUN!!!!It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:A.) BE AWARE... look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat.B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY.(And better paranoid than dead.)6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot.This is especially true at NIGHT!)7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then,it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!!!!Preferably in a zig-zag pattern!8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP!!!It may get you raped or killed.(Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well-educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next VICTIM). 9. Another Safety Point:Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last and because it was late and she thought it was weird...She called the police.The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR!The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, do not open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.10. Water scam!If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe.....DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE!These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack. Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors! I'd like you to forward this to all the men and women you know.It may save a life. Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one's life. How to Improve Your Personal Safety: 8 Essential Tips From a Cop The world is not an easy place you want to live in personal safety with full of peace.
