Christmas Vacation Plan

Christmas is a busy time of year. Yes, that is the understatement of the year, but it is true and because of this, many people decide it’s the perfect time of year to get away from home and leave the craziness for everyone else.

If you live in a warm place, let’s say Florida, then maybe you’re dreaming of a white Christmas and would then choose a place, let’s say Colorado for Christmas. On the flip side, if you aren’t a winter fan but live in, say Minnesota, known for the cold and snowy winters, you may be dreaming of heading to somewhere, anywhere where there is a beautiful warm beach and the beaming sun. So while some may just want a change of pace, others actually just want to ‘get away’ for the holidays.

If you aren’t at home you won’t need to get the food in for the Christmas dinner, this means you won’t have to stand in lines and jockey for position at the deli counter or the bakery aisle. You don’t need to fight others for the perfect turkey or to worry that you don’t have enough marshmallows for Uncle Bob’s famous salad. If you are on vacation someone will make your Christmas dinner for you. No muss, no fuss.

A vacation at Christmas also means that you are prepared for the big day in advance. You will want to take gifts with you for the morning, presumably, so those will have to be purchased before you leave. If the trip itself is the gift it makes a great surprise for those not in the know which is another reason some choose to get away for the holidays.

Some find leaving the extended family at home gives them a more relaxing experience at Christmas. There are no arguments, no who is going to make what and no bad feelings that can come from too much togetherness especially during the holidays.

So, escape the lines, escape the stress, let someone else do the cooking and the cleaning for you, prepare for the big day before you leave and above all make some memories that will be with you for years to come when you choose to leave home for a Christmas trip. It may even turn into a new tradition for the family, one that can be relived year after year. So all that’s left is where to go?

I Use Software to Help Me Keep Payroll Straight for My Business

I have not yet reached a point with my business where I can hire as many people as I need to help me handle a variety of different things. I have hired some employees, but I still have to handle a lot of things on my own. When I hired my first employee, I was a bit nervous about payroll at first. However, with the help of QuickBooks payroll support and the QuickBooks program itself, it was something that I was able to grasp and handle somewhat quickly. I am grateful for this because I am not very good when I have to keep track of things with a pen and paper. I can remember my parents having to do that years ago for their business, and it was often a mess and very disorganized.

I sometimes marvel at the fact that I’m running my own business at all. It has been common in my adult life to feel that I am an imposter. Other people seem to have everything under control, but I don’t. I feel like I have friends that have everything together so that others don’t look down on them. I used to think that I’m the only one who feels that way, but I have learned that it is very common for many adults to feel like they are an imposter, too. It makes me feel better knowing that I am not alone with that type of thinking.

I have learned that feeling like you really don’t know what you’re doing and that you’re not as good as everyone else is a major sign of low self-esteem. Confidant people dive into whatever new thing that they are confronted with and work their way through the learning process without thinking negatively of themselves. They understand that everyone has to start at the beginning with many things in life, and they also understand that it is okay to make mistakes during the learning process.

It Has Greatly Helped My Diabetes

After reading Forskolin reviews for weight loss, I knew it was something I needed to try. Being diagnosed with diabetes really through me for a curve. Reading up on the condition after getting the bad news from my doctor, I quickly realized I was in for some real trouble if I didn’t get my weight under control. I also worried about my blood pressure considering that one of the first things my doctor did was give me pharmaceuticals to control that problem. Diabetes often causes very high blood pressure and the damage that can do to your organs is no laughing matter.

My problem was taking the medicines prescribed by my doctor. Surely, I thought, there had to be a better way to deal with these issues. I thought doing research online might turn up some holistic herbal supplements that could lower my blood pressure to within the normal range. Continue reading “It Has Greatly Helped My Diabetes”

Using a Tool to Keep Track of My Kids Online

I believe that it’s important for my kids to be able to have a sense of independence, and experience and learn new things for themselves. When it comes to their online safety, I want them to know that I trust them, but at the same time I need to know that they aren’t putting themselves in danger. That’s why I decided to use Snapchat Spy to keep tabs on what they do with that app. I know that my kids use it multiple times per day, because I’m on there as well, and I can see all of the things that they’re posting. I’m sure that they’re posting even more things that I can’t currently see, which worries me.

Another parent told me about this tool, and he’s been using it for a few months now, with great results. He told me that he hasn’t found anything really alarming, but the fact that the tool is installed and he can check in on his daughter at any time really gives him peace of mind. He knows what she’s doing on the app, and whether or not she’s behaving appropriately. Continue reading “Using a Tool to Keep Track of My Kids Online”

Sales Training in the Netherlands is Called Verkooptraining

We got a salesman from the Netherlands working for us. He is actually kind of incredible. He has top-notch interpersonal skills, and people really like him. Not like you like a car salesman, but they actually like him. He said that he had verkooptraining in the Netherlands. I don’t speak Dutch, so he told me it means sales training. We have sales training here, but he must have had a really good school. Maybe there is a little natural talent there too. I just can’t tell. He said that believing in the products or services is also a huge help. I have always supported that as a manager. I could not stick with a company that sold something I would not use my self or recommend for my family to use.

Our salesman was hired because he could speak Dutch, Frisian and German. He was working one of the international desks as a salesman for the Netherlands and Germany. Continue reading “Sales Training in the Netherlands is Called Verkooptraining”

At-Home Hair Styling Made Simple

Getting your hair just right every morning can be a chore all on its own. It can be a time consuming task even for the most skilled woman who has done her own hair for years. The difficulty of straightening, curling, and styling is why so many women continue to visit the hair salon on a regular basis to achieve the look that they want, especially on special occasions. But that doesn’t help the day-to-day difficulties. A newer hair tool called the Simply Straight ceramic straightening brush aims to help women on their day-to-day hair styling challenges. It is a game changer for at-home hair styling. It simplifies the process and saves precious time every morning spent on doing your hair.

The Simply Straight is a combination of a straightening iron and a brush. Continue reading “At-Home Hair Styling Made Simple”

Mt. Rinjani

Mount Rinjani or gunung rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island of Lombok.
Administratively the mountain is in regency of east Lombok, west nusa tenggara ( Indonesian: nusa tenggara barat, NTB). It rises to 3,726 meters (12,224 ft), making in the second higest volcano in lndonesia.

On the top of the volcano is a 6-by-8.5- kilometer (3.7 by 5.3 mil) caldera, which is filled partially by the crater lake known as segara anak or anak laut (child of the sea) due to blue colour of water lake as laut (sea).

Segara anak lake is crater lake contained within mount rinjani on the island of Lombok in indonesia.

Hawaii Food and Wine Festival –Eat, Stay and Play Hawaiian

Whether you are planning your first trip or are a loyal repeat visitor to the Aloha State, The Hawaii Food and Wine Festival is yet another reason to stay, eat and return to Hawaii.

What sets The Hawaii Food and Wine Festival apart from all the rest and deserves to be on your must- do list is the fact that virtually all the ingredients served are grown, raised or caught in Hawaii.

This year, the festivities kicked off in Maui, just after the Kaanapali Fresh Festival, which is reason alone to plan a Maui visit before going on to Honolulu for the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival.

Both festivals will impress you with the transformation of Hawaii from a consuming to a producing Mecca. Where once almost every food item was imported, the state now grows much of what it eats.

Farmers and fishers are consulted, embraced and revered for their magic in producing and catching some of the tastiest home grown products available on the planet. The two days of events at the Kaanapali Fresh Festival serve to introduce locals and guests to the pleasures of this “locavore” haven and salute the farmers, fishers, and chefs who delight us with every bite.

If you start in Maui at the Kaanapali Fresh Festival plan to attend the Friday evening “Progressive Kaanapali Dinner.” Guests started at the Westin Maui Resort and Spa where they enjoyed savory tastes infused with coffee created by the resorts culinary team, then everyone moves on to live music and desserts provided by the team at the Sheraton Maui Resort and Spa.

Saturday starts with a trip to the local market to revel in local bounty. Then there is a tour and lunch at a coffee plantation to celebrate the 200 years of coffee production in Hawaii. The Saturday evening signature event boasts a tasting of farm-to-table cuisine with carefully selected wines highlighting the artistry of local chefs and farmers and a silent auction dedicated to supporting Maui agriculture. The level of cuisine and the wines provided by Southern Wine and Spirits is a stellar examples of the quality found on the island paradise of Maui.

Having tempted your taste buds with the celebration of Kaanapali Fresh, you will be ready to knowledgeably indulge in the pleasures of the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival, which stages its opening event, “Malama Maui,” at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa on Sunday evening. The kickoff features sunset cocktails overlooking the Pacific, palm trees swaying to smooth jazz, and six global luminary chefs collaborating on a dinner extravaganza using Maui’s finest ingredients paired with international wines selected by Southern Wine and Spirits.

The remainder of the festival takes place in Honolulu four days later giving you plenty of time to relax, work up an appetite and enjoy the resort before taking the short flight to Oahu.

The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa’s many features offer you an ideal location to start your festival experience. It is centrally located to all the tourist areas, and is a destination onto itself. Covering 40 acres, this property offers something for everyone. Among its most coveted highlights are the Swan Court and the Penguin Cove. The lush landscape, pool extravaganza complete with slides, caves and waterfalls, extensive shopping arcade, fine art collection and superb selection of restaurants makes this a one stop stay and play option for families and couples alike.

For a unique experience, sign up for Sushi School and a Tour of the Stars where the director of astronomy will show you the night sky from atop the roof. Treat yourself to Regency status for customized service and amenities to please the most discriminating guests and enjoy a meal at Japengo where locally grown products and Pacific Rim influences entice and delight the palate. .

After enjoying marvelous Maui, it’s time to hop over to Honolulu to continue the excitement of the world class Hawaii Food and Wine Festival where over 70 renowned chefs from around the globe have gathered to utilize only Hawaiian products in their gourmet offerings. The culinary team is anchored by the festival’s founders, Allan Wong and Roy Yamaguchi, both of whom are Honolulu-based James Beard Award-Winners.

Besides five signature evening events, there are a series of educational experiences and seminars lead by four master sommeliers and top flight winemakers. The impressive array of culinary talent includes Ricardo Zarate of Mo-Chica in Los Angeles, Celestino Drago (Drago Restaurant Group).

Check in at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, one of the venues for the many festival activities. Centrally located to take advantage of shopping and beach, this aloha-spirited welcoming resort offers daily activities through its cultural center to enhance your understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the Hawaiian culture.

Learn lei making, hula, ukulele and much more. The Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa is home to world class Na Ho’ola Spa, where the breathtaking ocean view meets the spa. Select one of their many signature Hawaiian treatments and enjoy the sights and sounds of the spectacular views as you await your pampering.

Before the festival begins, dine at Japengo where Pacific Rim cuisine is at its most authentic. Executive Chef Sven spares no expense in selecting the finest ingredients to prepare each succulent item with the utmost concern for genuine regional flair.

Ever vigilant about honoring the traditions of each dish, chefs from Beijing taught the kitchen staff to make their authentic fried rice, and it took weeks to perfect!

And perfect it they did, as your taste buds will attest. That is just one example of the care that goes into each dish. The hip décor, intimate spaces for private parties and beautifully presented cuisine make Japengo “a must” on your culinary tour of Waikiki.

The Hawaii Food and Wine Festival signature event is sponsored by Hawaiian Airlines: “Under the Modern Moon: Morimoto & Friends at The Modern Honolulu.” This event includes 15 world class chefs from Asia and the Pacific— each offering succulent morsels to tease your taste buds, stellar wines presented by the winemakers themselves, including Jim Clendenen, whose Au Bon Climat label is world renown,, and you will also meet mixology magicians offering creative sips in a cool, hip, environment that wowed even the most sophisticated palates.

Try one of Honolulu’s favorite chefs, Chef Chai’s Restaurant, before you leave the city. As a TV personality and executive chef of Hawaiian Airlines, the only domestic airline to still serve complimentary meals even in economy class, his Pacific fusion cuisine is a soul satisfying blend of Hawaii’s finest ingredients with Asian influences, European technique and a pinch of health food savvy for good measure. That makes for unique items such as lobster bisque without the butter and cream, healthy stir fry and a lighter version of coconut cheesecake, all full flavored, delicious and ever so good for you!

Culinary demonstrations and wine seminars add to the daytime activities sprinkled in between the evening’s other special events. Saturday’s “Rooftop Garden at Hawaii’s Convention Center” and Sunday’s “Savory Ever After at Ko Olina Resort,” showcase the talents of countless luminary chefs from the Islands, Mainland, and Pacific Rim— all designed to thrill and delight the attendees who also come from near and far to experience the culinary excellence that is Hawaii.

Mark these two event— Kaanapali Fresh in Maui and The Hawaii Food and Wine Festival in Honolulu— on your gourmet calendar, and make this a culinary destination vacation to savor!

Norman Reedus and Ian Somerhalder ride for Endymion in New Orleans

In tonight’s Endymion Parade in New Orleans, Ian Somerhalder of TV’s “Vampire Diaries” and “Lost” road as Co-Grand Marshal with Norman Reedus of “The Walking Dead” and “The Boondock Saints.” Each had their own float, of course, and had separate toasts with Mayor, Mitch Landrieu.

While Mr. Reedus stayed at the top for his toast, Mr. Somerhalder was down among the musicians that were serenading him on his ride. After exchanging toasts with Mayor Landrieu, the celebrities went on their merry way.

They were followed by members of the court and then the King and Queen of the Endymion Krewe. While the toasts with the mayor were exciting for those present, the crowd was more exciting once the millions of beads were flying into the stands.

In addition to the beads there were many other goodies including frisbies, stuffed animals, balls of various sizes and types, dubloons, glowing rings, necklaces, and other jewelry.

Windy City winters can't stop kids

Sure, Chicago winters are cold, but hearty locals try not to let that get in the way of work and play.

“I’m a Windy City baby, so I just prepare myself,” said Edna Hackman, 51, to a Chicago Tribune reporter. “I’m used to it.” Hackman and dozens of others were out doing laundry at a Laundromat despite the recent cold snap. “You’ve got to come out to do what you’ve got to do. You can’t sit up in the house just because it’s cold.”

That’s especially true for kids. There’s only so much to endure indoors before they think about painting the cat, or start wondering what happens to grapes in a microwave (they can burst into flames – don’t do it).

Thanks to Chicago CityPASS, there are numerous dazzling activities families can enjoy together, no matter what the weather is doing.

Start Skyward
Everyone will forget about the chill in a nanosecond when they zoom up 103 floors to Skydeck Chicago at Willis Tower. Formerly known as the Sears Tower, the Willis Tower is the Western Hemisphere’s tallest building. CityPASS holders can skip the cashier line and head on up in a high-speed elevator that rises 1,600 feet per minute.

At the top, you can enjoy “Reaching for the Sky,” a 9-minute video about the rise of Chicago architecture.

Then, if you can stand it, step out onto The Ledge: a 4.3-foot, glass-floored platform, jutting out from the Skydeck. At 1,353 feet in the air, just looking down is going to quicken the pulse of kids and adults alike. From there, you can look down on Wacker Drive and the Chicago River. Tell the kids, NO SPITTING.

The Skydeck itself offers 360-degree views of up to 50 miles where sharp-eyed visitors can view four states from their perch: Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin. One would think that would be enough, but there’s also a Skydeck scavenger hunt, quizzes and interactive displays.

Go See Sue
Few things will pierce the protected dreams of your little tykes like Sue, the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. At 13 feet tall and 42 feet long, this many-toothed fossil stands in a ready-to-pounce pose at The Field Museum.

With a wealth of natural and historical displays, The Field Museum can occupy a solid day. Chicago CityPASS holders get expedited entry into permanent and ticketed exhibitions. A CityPASS ticket also gets you into one 3D feature. Now showing is “Titans of the Ice Age 3D”. Peek into a time of saber-toothed cats, wolves, giant sloths and mammoths. The film will keep the kids still for a bit.

Other exhibits include a journey into an ancient Egyptian tomb (complete with 23 mummies); plus there’s Underground Adventure, where you can pretend that you’ve been reduced to the size of a bug.

For the truly adventurous, The Field Museum holds sleepovers called Dozin With the Dinos, with family workshops, self-guided tours, and other activities before sleeping by favorite exhibits … including Sue.

Dazzle Inquisitive Minds
Museum of Science and Industry may be the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere, but it’s hardly frumpy. Until May 4, MSI is presenting Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, featuring 300 artifacts and covering 90 years of Disney wizardry. Many nuggets are rarely seen, including clips of Walt Disney’s earliest animated pre-Mickey works. There are props, models and costumes from classics such as “The Little Mermaid”, “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Mary Poppins”.

Another exhibit is Black Creativity Innovation Studio, through March 1, which highlights important contributions of African-American innovators to science, technology, engineering and medicine. Also, The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea, which plunges visitors into a colorful undersea world of this important ecosystem.

Imagine a Space Adventure
Use your CityPASS to take the family to Adler Planetarium — America’s first. There, you’ll marvel at the tight quarters astronauts endured in NASA’s Gemini 12 space capsule in the Shoot for the Moon exhibit. Younger kids will have fun creating their own space adventure in Planet Explorers. And the Adler’s galleries and theaters will enthrall all ages with the wonders of the night sky and beyond. A CityPASS ticket includes a VIP Adler Pass that offers flexible admission, your choice of one 3D show, and the Atwood Sphere, which shows the night sky over Chicago as it appeared in 1913.

Meet a Beluga Whale at Shedd
Last, but most definitely not least, is Shedd Aquarium. There’s so many animals to see (32,500), you’ll probably just spend the day running after your kids. You’ll share in the eerie tingle of seeing tanks of sharks circling overhead and stingrays floating by. And you’ll giggle at the dolphins and beluga whales.

CityPASS admission includes entry into 80 different habitats in the Waters of the World galleries. And let’s not forget the snakes, caimans, spiders and rays in Amazon Rising; the moray eels, parrotfish and turtles in Wild Reef; and the popular Polar Play Zone for younger kids. There’s also a 4D film.

The Shedd’s newest feature is the Beluga Encounter, where visitors can stand with a trainer and come face-to-face with a whale. The session includes learning some training techniques and an opportunity to touch the beluga’s skin. It’s not cheap, however, at $250 a person, and must be reserved in advance. The 30-minute Penguin Encounter is less expensive, $68.95 for adults and $58.95 for children.

On Feb. 21, the Shedd is holding its Asleep with the Fishes Group Overnight event. Kids ages 6-12 should bring pajamas, a sleeping bag, a check for $65, and join the staff for an evening of special aquatic adventures, games and activities. Another sleepover is planned for March 14.

Spring break 2014: AAA poll shows Las Vegas as top travel location

If you live every day in a veritable paradise of sunshine, blue skies, and miles of warm beaches, where do you go from there for a vacation?

According to a March 12, report in Pacific Business News, a poll conducted by AAA-Hawaii, placed Las Vegas as the top travel location, for college spring break travel.

Reportedly, the poll found that 21 percent of spring break travelers are heading for the gambling capital of the United States, which is affectionately referred to as Hawaii’s ninth island.

Overall poll results:

Las Vegas, 21 percent
Big Island, 18 percent
Los Angeles, 17 percent
San Francisco, 16 percent
Oahu, 14 percent (outer-island travel)

The 2014 poll also shows a 19 percent increase over the 2013 poll, in the overall number of residents planning to travel during the next three-months.

According to AAA-Hawaii, “Overall, 54 percent of the people polled said that they are going to take at least one fun trip, a 19 percent increase over last year. Forty percent said they plan to take two trips.”

Tips to Get a Cheap Ticket for a Flight

One of the most expensive parts of journeying or traveling is buying the ticket to travel to the location that you want to reach. And if you buy a flight ticket to your vacation destination then you will have a very hard time coping with a huge spending of money. A lot of vacation destinations are far away with respect to people’s home. This is why they have no choice but to go on a flight to the vacation destination. This can prove to be quite expensive. So how do you buy yourself cheap flight tickets?

Well that is quite easy; there are a few ways in which you can get hold of these tickets. One of them is that you buy a return ticket. A return ticket is actually quite cheap as compared to buying a ticket to the destination and back from the destination separately. A return ticket is cheaper because many people never really know when they have to return. International flights are actually quite hard to follow and there is a huge probability that you could miss the flights. In this case when they let you buy a ticket, they are actually bargaining on whether or not you will make it to the flight back to your destination or not. If you plan to travel on weekdays rather than on weekends, then you will end up realizing that the flight tickets will actually be cheaper on weekdays than they will be on weekends. That is obvious. There is a little possibility that people will fly on weekdays until and unless it is absolutely necessary.

Similar to this when you buy a ticket during the time when there are no holidays, you will realize that the flight tickets will actually cost quite cheaply and it would be very easy for you to book a ticket too. During the holiday season, the ticket sales are on fire. There is little or no chance that you will get a ticket if you reach the airport without prior booking. During the holiday season because of the immense number of people moving to and fro between different holiday destinations, the prices of the tickets are kept up so that the air flight company could get huge amounts of profits.

There are lots of websites that help tourists find cheap flight tickets all year round. These websites are updated regularly. Whenever there is an availability of tickets, these websites are told about it and the information is displayed on the website. These websites are also the best way to get to know about those tickets that are available at very low prices. Such tickets are made available when the flight has seats that are not taken or booked. The tickets are also made available when the flight companies put up promotional offers for buying tickets in advance. Tickets that are made available at the very last moments are the ones that cost very cheaply.

Get In Shape For Holiday Dining

How do you plan to enjoy the coming holiday season while keeping your scale under control?  Or do you plan to give that scale a short vacation while you indulge yourself at all the upcoming dinners, parties, and events with their tasteful and superfluous calories?  That is the policy many people take, even many in the medical profession, who will speak of “taking a break” from the diet to enjoy holiday season meals and snacks that are verboten when you are dieting at other times.

Of course, there is another strategy that can be tried. Instead of “taking a break” from your diet, you might consider increasing the activity that consumes the additional calories.  Or to put it another way, increase your daily amount of regular exercise to burn up those added calories you consume during the holiday period.  So if you customarily work out 20-30 minutes each day you might start working out 40 to 60 minutes.  Or if you are a calorie counter you try doubling the calories you burn in your workouts.   Try walking 2 miles uphill on your Bowflex treadmill each day, or jog 5 miles instead of your usual 3.  Another tactic could be simply to do two workouts per day or – try adding an additional 15 minutes to the usual afternoon workout.  Or add a different type of workout – rowing in the afternoon to jogging in the morning.  Take advantage of your Groupon promo code to enhance your regular workout by obtaining a new Bowflex you can use to increase your stamina and burn through those extra calories from the extra helpings you ate.

Now the benefits of the latter strategy are quickly evident; instead of allowing yourself to get lazy – and flabby – you manage to increase your conditioning and muscle tone.  And you simultaneously reduce the tendency towards pre-diabetes, a condition which threatens a large percentage of our population. But just as desirable is that consuming those calories can give you some freedom to enjoy the meals and treats that accompany the events that take place during this season.  No time need be spent worrying whether you will have to diet after the season, nor need you worry about changes in clothing size.  Your Bowflex gym and Groupon coupons can enable you to enjoy the great meals, events and activities that make up a great holiday season.
