Choosing the Best Razor for You

When it comes to getting a good shave, one of the most important things you can do is get the best gear possible. The reason that the equipment you choose is so important is because things like dull razors, or shaving cream that doesn’t lubricate adequately can leave your skin irritated, dry, or full of cuts. One of the best pieces of advice to get the best gear possible is not to buy your razors and shave cream from your local grocery store. Although these will do the job, if you are after a truly great shave that is irritation free, you will need to up the ante on the quality of shave gear you get. To find only the best, you should go a specialty shave shop and invest in either a quality straight razor or quality safety razors. This article will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each.

Straight Razors
The art of using a safety razor is something that was lost for almost a century after the invention of the safety razor, but has made a strong comeback in recent years due to a growing romanticism with shaving and other things like it. Using a straight razor can be a great way to get a good shave, especially if you are styling your facial hair as it gives you maximum control over what hairs get cut and where. It does take some practice to do correctly, so if you have never used one, you will have to be patient while you get the hang of it.
Modern Razors
Modern safety razors are the most common and most popular choice around the world. These razors are a good choice because they are cheap, easy to use, and require relatively little skill. However, when shopping for one of these razors, you need to pay careful attention to the quality of manufacturing because some models have multiple blade designs that can cause a lot of irritation if the blades are not exactly parallel with each other. To get the best razor possible, only buy from a specialty shave shop that knows what the best gear is.

Window Treatments

Window treatments can make a space attractive, cozy and can create a wonderful effect. If you chose the right fabric, pattern and color of the curtain then, it will certainly tie the whole room together. You can brighten up a room with patterns. If you are not afraid in using bold colors then, just play with it. It might give your space the appearance that you need. Bold colors can be toned down when you accessorized with lighter and neutral colors.

Bring in some neutral colors of throw pillows and rugs. If you have a higher ceiling, use drapery to get that sophisticated look. Oh, I got these ideas from watching HGTV shows. It works for me and I hope it will work for you too. Enjoy decorating your home.

Great Educational Tools for Teachers

One of the most fundamental building blocks for human development is Education. I believe that when majority of the people is Educated, there will be a poverty reduction. From Preschool, Primary, Secondary, College to University, these are ladder to success and are important. In Preschool years, children are taught the alphabet, counting, recognize the shapes as well as the colors and these activities are designed for basic learning. While the Primary, Middle Schools and High School are the formal and structured education.

Children are expected to read with comprehension, write and be able to use mathematical skills not only in school but, daily living. These days, technology is highly considered as the influential factor in education. In fact, computers are used to develop new ways of learning. Technology is a powerful learning tool. It demands new skills. As I noticed, children prefer the virtual learning environment because they are susceptible to learn fast. 

When children research online, wide range of information is easily accessed. Learning is very effective using the technology. Speaking of technology, it is also very effective to use as instruction to students. The use of technologies such as PowerPoint and interactive whiteboard captures the attention of students in the classroom. If you are a teacher, I bet you already mastered the strategies for teaching.

I taught first grade for twelve years and my strategy for teaching vary each class in each year. Having the right tool would help the teacher accomplish the objective for the class.

The products from such as Motivation Math, Standards and Strategies Flip Charts, Vocabulary Adventure and more are great Educational tools for teachers. According to Mitzi McAfee, the Principal of Jackson-Roosevelt Elementary, Motivational Math helps the teacher's job done easy and the students are more successful.

Educational Tools like this truly aide the teaching strategy of teachers and the students yielded a positive outcome. If you are a teacher, check out this Website today.

Mexico at Disney's Epcot Theme Park

It was already night time when we arrived in Mexico area. Well, we actually went inside Epcot at 4PM so; it was almost sunset when we started to view the World Showcase area. Mexico is the first country that you will explore/see which is located on the left side of the theme park.

The ambiance of this place was built like you are in Mexico in fact, the atmosphere changes abruptly. It was funny and weird at the same time to see Donald Duck in Mexican attire and speaks Spanish/Mexican but, I like it a lot. The Disney crew also speaks Mexican.

They have a marketplace inside which you can buy sombrero and other Mexican souvenirs. It feels like you are truly in Mexico hearing the Mexican music and people talking in Mexican.
Here is the star of the night and some tourists trying to pose for a souvenir picture.

This is the Aztec pyramid which served as the entrance. There is a market place, restaurants and one attraction ride inside. You should take the musical boat tour especially when you are with the kids. It is fun and so unique.

Here is the busy marketplace in Mexico area. Planning to visit Disney World? Check out EPCOT theme park if you love long walk. Oh yeah ... you will definitely lose few pounds once you tour the property of EPCOT. It's actually healthy and fun. Don't worry, if you hate walking, find your seat in one of their gourmet restaurants. If you want Schnitzel, locate Germany and instantly, ambiance feels like you are in Germany.

Whitening Lightning: Zero White Teeth Whitening System

I was thrilled when this product arrived in the mail a week ago. I was truly curious about Whitening Lightning's Zero White Teeth Whitening System because the price is quiet expensive. This product is the latest technology in teeth whitening and is available in the market for $399. This product contains no harmful peroxide and will not cause sensitivity. That is a relief don't you think?

Whitening Lightning is specially formulated in the lab; made from all natural ingredients and tastes great as well. This product is made to restore teeth, crowns, veneers and caps for a natural white. Using Zero White Teeth Whitening System is pain-free.

It was a bit confusing at first for I never have these stuffs for dental care at home. I used toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash and dental floss but, with Zero White Whitening System, I have the following:
1. deep cleaning teeth wipe
2. gel syringe
3. handheld led light
4.applicator brush
5.dispensing tub

Once I read the kit instructions at the back of the box, everything is perfectly easy to follow. I tried this product and it works great so far. I like using the shade finder because I can see the difference on a day to day basis. I will be posting the photo here after two weeks time. Hope you can comeback and check it out.

To use the Pen, I twist and click the base of the pen until the gel exudes from the brush tip. I then gently brush on visible teeth. I wear it for at least 15 minutes then, I rinsed. It is good to use before bedtime because it works while I was asleep. There is no unpleasant taste and no sensitivity issue.

Tropical Storm Chantal Weakens According to my Fox Orlando

According to my Fox Orlando news, Tropical Storm Chantal weakens and was downgraded to tropical wave which means, we have nothing to be alarmed of this weekend. I am so relieved hearing that news. We probably head out to the beach to see the waves. I bet surfers will be feasting on the big waves this weekend. I hope that by the time it reaches the Florida waters, it weakens more. Hopefully, no big storms this year but, 4 months is a long way yet.

Deep Sea Fishing at Cape Canaveral Florida

Oh yeah, we go out and explore our neighborhood a lot. On this particular day, hubby and I went to Rusty's Seafood and Oyster Bar at Cape Canaveral for lunch. At that time, we saw one cruise ship passed by, sailing away for Caribbean. It was an awesome experience waving at them. Diners stopped eating and taking pictures of the cruise ship. How near? You will see it in my other blog. I will share some photos for sure.  Then, we saw fishing boats arriving to the fishing dock near the restaurant. The picture below is the headquarter for that business.

If you are looking for a deep sea fishing adventure, this is the site that you can check out: . Their office is newly constructed and it's nice. This big shark is a great attraction. I need to stop by and take a photo souvenir (wink). Anyway, hubby and I might take this adventure soon. The price is about $60 according to the passenger but, food is included, bait, fishing gear and drinks too. It should be fun, don't you think?

Now, some guests caught the shark, the tiny species about 2 feet. They fillet them and bring them home for their meals. Now, I don't think I will eat shark meat though. Would you eat shark meat?

Now, this is hubby's biggest caught LOL. Looks like it huh?

What you see here are tiny sharks. They are not babies. At first, my heart sank ... but, one passenger said, they are fully grown specie and it is legal here in Florida to fish this type of sharks. They grow about 2 to 4 feet and plenty in Atlantic so; they are not endangered.

The Features and Specifications of the Volkswagen Tiguan

Do you know what the difference between a compact SUV and a mid-sized SUV is? A compact SUV began as a smaller alternative to the mid-sized based on the smaller pickup frames. Later, car companies began building the smaller SUV on a car platform, known as the unibody frame. This gives the compact SUV better handling and increased fuel economy, while keeping the better towing capacity, off-road capabilities, and style of the SUV. A compact SUV may also be referred to as a crossover SUV. Volkswagen’s version of the compact SUV is the Tiguan. Should you consider a VW Tiguan in Chicago?

Tiguan Features

The Tiguan has the different available trim levels of S, LE, SE, and SEL, though the LE trim level was not released until 2012. For 2013 models, Bluetooth, MP3 compatibility, a trip computer, power heated side mirrors with turn indicators, daytime running lights, a folding rear seat, 16-inch wheels, rear window defrosters, and rear passenger heat and air vents are all standard features. While the different trim levels can add additional options, the basic options for the Tiguan include a sunroof, 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, trailer hitch, and sidesteps. Along with seven other Volkswagen models, the 2013 Tiguan was chosen as a 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick. Some of the safety features available with the newer Tiguan models are a tire pressure sensor monitor, a brake-pad wear indicator, rear child safety locks, lower anchors and tethers of children, six airbags (including front and side curtain), and electronic stability control. 

Tiguan Specifications

The Tiguan first appeared as a 2009 model. Since its release, not much has been changed about the Tiguan besides the front-end styling. In 2010, a Wolfsburg edition of the Tiguan was available with unique features such as 17-inch alloy wheels and leatherette vinyl upholstery. The Tiguan is available in front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. The basic, front-wheel drive model has an optional six-speed manual transmission, but all other models come with a standard six-speed automatic transmission. The gas tank has a capacity of 16.8 gallons, and the fuel economy is 18 for city and 26 for highway. A standard, 2.0-L, four-cylinder engine with 200 horsepower is also standard on the Tiguan. In the end, a VW Tiguan in Chicago of any model year can be a good compact SUV choice with excellent safety ratings.

Scooter Rentals Along the Beachline

While hubby and I were driving down the Atlantic Avenue, we saw these rentals along the side of Ron Jon Surf Shop. We saw few people riding on those scooters along the beach area and on the main road. The scooters and the like are common rentals along the beaches all throughout Florida. I saw these in Miami up to Pensacola and so far, these are the best rides. If you rent one of these, you will get in and out to some narrow streets so easily. I don't know how much is the rental though. When we went to Bahamas, tourist can rent the scooter for $50 and I think it was a good deal.

Would you rent one of these?

Condo by the Beach

We have two super awesome Realtors, one in Orlando and one is right here by the Space Coast. We love living here by the coast and so far, hurricanes did not deter us from loving this area. As we keep coming to the beach which is by the way, 15 minutes away from our place, we decided to sell the condo in Orlando. We plan to buy a condo near the water. It could be by the Indian River, Banana River or down the Atlantic area. Look at the view below, isn't it beautiful? A condo by the beach would be so awesome to have.

Down by Merritt Island area, people are so busy paragliding, wind surfing, fishing, kayaking, boating and there are numerous of them having fun with their jet ski. Those are awesome water sports to try. Well, just the jet ski though. I am not really a sports fanatic but, I sure love to watch them doing those stunts.

Hubby went to see our realtor in Orlando to discuss matters on putting up our condo on the market. Our realtor here will help us find good deals. Good deals mean, really ... really good deal. Let's see if things will pull accordingly. It is in God's plan anyway. Thanks for stopping by. Come by tomorrow okay?

Choose to Defend Yourself or Hire a Criminal Lawyer

Greatness can never be achieved by those who never make a mistake. Great thinkers and doers are willing to get out of their comfort zone and take risks. Taking risks shouldn’t have to include breaking the law. However, there is no reason to give up if you’ve been charged with a criminal offense. Your life will go on after you have dealt with the consequences of your actions. Your outlook and decision making during the stress of your condemnation and trial will directly affect your ability to recover and move on with your life. This is a tedious and uncertain time. Reach out for help from friends and family. Coming out of your trial as unscathed as possible may involve contacting a criminal lawyer in Houston.

Choose Your Method of Defense Wisely

A criminal case cannot be defended properly without skill, knowledge, and experience. Fortunately, there are a plethora of case histories available for you to research. Find an archive of criminal trials. Then search out trials that closest match the description of your case. You can mimic the successful tactics of other cases in order to give yourself a fighting chance. Defending yourself is always an option. However, a professional attorney can bring vast amounts of courtroom experience to the table. Real life experience can certainly trump experience learned through reading and research. Choose your path of defense wisely.

Choices that Affect the Rest of Your Life

Your criminal trial could be one of the most difficult times of your life. It would take an extreme amount of self-discipline and strength to go through something like that alone. Even the best boxer has a few friends in their corner. You may need similar help through your courtroom ordeal. The choice is ultimately yours to make. The quality of the rest of your life may be riding on your success in this trial. You can get advice from your friends and family, but the ultimate decision is yours to make. Do some deep soul searching and decide how you will stand your trial. You can try to take on the charges by yourself if you feel that is right. However, a criminal lawyer in Houston can be a powerful ally in the courtroom.

This is a guest post which is provided to Business Matters for its readers.

Dilemma Between an HP Desktop or McBook Air

Lately, I find it easy to blog using my desktop computer. I am now in dilemma whether to buy a Mc Book Air or a  desktop PC. My Toshiba Laptop is great and very handy especially when I blog at the gazebo or back porch but, it seemed its dragging me. I noticed that using the desktop is much more faster to blog.

Anyway, I am still contemplating between McBook Air or HP desktop.
