The year is young and you’ve got a lot to live for this year. It’s quite normal for people to have some. But perhaps before you really delve deeper into 2008, you might want to resolve some unfinished business so you can really set off to a new start. Indeed one truly appreciates the need for procrastination when one has issues which are better off, well, forgotten. But with issues such as these, procrastination is not an option.
What a morbid thing to write about at the start of the year! Sure, but you have to be realistic about things. You’d never know when you’ll kick the bucket, whether it’s from radiation from wi-fi signals or a piano smashing you to pieces while walking down the street. And with death, it can happen to anybody. So what’s your family going to do if the worst happens say you’re the breadwinner. You still got kids to bring up, mortgage to pay… So you better have life insurance then. But with insurance companies like vultures, you have to pick the best policy for you.
Snow blindness is a temporary condition that is caused by the excessive glare of the sun’s rays bouncing off the snow. These harmful ultraviolet rays can cause temporary blindness on some people. Snow is highly reflective that even in overcast and cloudy days, glare can be present. The thing with this is that symptoms can occur as much as 8 hours after exposure.
This might be common if you live in an apartment building with a bunch of savages but it’s quite common in neighborhoods and even the suburbs too (especially since the richer folk can afford million-watt audio systems). If you want some peace and quiet but your neighbor won’t let up, then it may be time to deal with the person. The following is a guide to deal with the person tactfully. A kind word can do the job better than a clenched fist.
With the series of snowstorms pretty common this winter, being a bit more careful around snow is quite crucial especially if you’re the type of person who like to go out in the snow. While avalanches may not be a real concern for city dwellers, people living closer to nature might have to be cautious with these things. Being caught in one isn’t too remote and there’s nothing wrong in being prepared. Here’s how to spot probable avalanche locations so that you can avoid them. As with most dangers, avoiding them is best than dealing with them head-on.
Someday, your old LPs will soon conk out. If you still have The Who’s Tommy somewhere in the attic, you might want to bring it down for a good listen. (Well, better have it cleaned and restored since it’s a collector’s item already.) So why not create a digital archive while they’re still playable? That way you can enjoy listening to your LPs in your iPod complete with the old crackle-pop of old LPs.
I’ve been doing some new year reorganizing and saw my old scanner gathering dust on one side of our storeroom. I rarely get to use my scanner nowadays since my prime use of the thing was mostly for scanning line art to be digitally colored during my digital artist wannabe days. Anyway, seeing it made me write this guide to scanning.
To some people, the New Year signifies only one thing: more expenses. With a lot less money to burn (because the holidays nearly drained everything), you’re now facing one of the most terrible realities of all time. Indeed it is such a bitch to be penniless before the year has even started, but we both know you’re not really broke, you just spent a little too much. I know I did. While I’m not necessarily bankrupt, I would have to say, that I went a bit over budget. I didn’t want to bring out any cash from my bank accounts, I did charge a good sum to my credit card. …
I have to admit that I might not have been too wise in approaching this whole holiday thing. I even tried to approach this season with a tightwad philosophy in mind. And everyone dislikes the tightwad during Christmas. Everyone, that is, except yourself. What’s wrong with spending only very little when everyone agrees that money problem is one of the biggest problems of all? Show everyone that being a bit thriftier than other people doesn’t automatically make you a Scrooge.
