Mickey | Health and Wellness | Monday, February 28th, 2011

Happiness is achieved if a person just wants to be happy. Though as easy as it sounds, most people would go through hard times and bad moments to be able to achieve happiness. A business man needs to work hard and sell his product for him to compensate and catch up to his quotas for the day. If business would go well, he can become successful in which happiness is achieved. A graduating high school student would study hard for the exams and if ever he can comply on all his requirements in his year level, he can graduate and go to college. The effect there is that the student becomes happy because he had achieved and finished something important in his life.

Just being with friends and having social gatherings would make a person happy. It’s not all the time we are always with our friends. Having simple family gatherings during the holidays or just a simple birthday celebration with your grandma and grandpa, singing a happy birthday song and thinking of various happy birthday wishes, can make your family member happy no matter how simple it is.

Seeking happiness is something every human being wants to attain. No matter how small or big that happiness is. Just have a positive outlook in life, and cast away all those negative thoughts. Be motivated all the time that you can do it. Be open minded in times of difficult situations. That way, you’ll be able to overcome all those obstacles in life and happiness is attained in the end.

From simple gatherings to lifelong achievements, if we want something, we have to go get it. Through our ambitions, goals, and dreams in life, we always have the encouragement to keep on moving forward as to attain all the happiness in life that might come unto us while enjoying the present times and keep on looking forward unto the future.

Best Way to Water Orchids

Mickey | Patio and Garden | Monday, February 28th, 2011

Orchids have become one of the most popular houseplants due in no small part to their gorgeous flowers of many colors, shapes and smells. Like most plants, orchids need to be provided with the correct growing conditions in order to be at their best. One crucial element of giving your orchid the right growing conditions is providing it with the correct amount of water.  Since the amount of water for your orchid can vary between the many different orchid types, it is important to research your particular plant. It will be helpful to understand orchids and where they come from this will help when watering orchids.

Orchids are normally from tropical areas of the world. These areas tend to receive a tremendous amount of rain and usually have very high humidity. Orchids like high humidity – the ideal humidity level for most orchid plants is around 80%.  An easy way to keep the humidity high is to provide the plants with a constant supply of water. By doing this you will be able to set up an artificial high-humidity micro climate around your orchid.

Care must be taken as a major mistake people make when caring for orchids is over watering their plants. The general rule is to water your orchid about once a week or once every other week, depending on how quickly it appears to be drying out. When trying to work out a water schedule in your home, you should let the potting compost dry out completely before watering again. The natural environment the orchid comes from can help explain how this works. Many orchids grow on the trunks and branches of trees not in the soil and so in their natural habitats it is normal for their roots to dry out before being given water again.

Orchids can be grown successfully in the home environment if they are given the proper care including the right amount of water, light and fertilizer.

How to Decide If a Portable Air Conditioner Is Right

Mickey | Home Improvement | Monday, February 28th, 2011

If you are looking at cooling systems for your property then at some point you may have to make a decision between buying a fixed or portable air conditioner> How is it best to decide? What factors will affect this decision.

Well, portable air conditioners are now made in quite a few different cooling capacities and you can buy very powerful ones of 16,000 BTU for your business or one as low as 8000 BTU for a small room at home, so there is almost one to fit any situation.

Most fixed air conditioners you’ll buy for your home have a sufficient capacity to cool most rooms within a standard sized house. However with the portable ones you have to be careful – and it’s not just the size of the room that counts. Yes, you will need to measure your room, but you will also have to take into account how got the room gets, how many people use it at the same time and how tall the ceilings are.

For example if you have a small, shaded room that hardly ever sees the sun, with normal height ceilings and which is used by only one person then an 8 to 10,000 BTU will usually suffice. But it may not suffice for a small, sunny room with high ceilings and used by 2 or 3 people at the same time, so take care to analyze your requirements correctly.

Once you have measured your room you can head over to some retailers’ web sites and portable air conditioner reviews and see where your specifications can match up. Choosing the right one is so important as an overly powerful one will cost more at first and in the long run, with monthly bills; an under-powered one will not do the job you want it to do.

Getting Rid OF Debt In Two Ways

Mickey | Financial | Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Debt settlement is not only the most common form of debt relief option but also one of the most reliable. In order to make sure that everything will go exactly as it should, get a debt settlement firm that is not only reliable but reputable as well. The main function of this company is to review your income and check your capacity in making a payment as well as your ability to follow their payment program that they will formulate for you.

Since there were a lot of people who were looking for student loan debt relief, a lot of companies were built in order to gain money out of the desperation of most people. Many fell victim therefore fewer people sought after debt settlement. As a result, the government had to step in and they were able to give people protection by establishing laws such as the prohibition of asking for an advanced fee. The only time that the services of the company will be paid is if they were able to complete the negotiation successfully.

The other option that is included in one of the best debt relief programs out there is debt consolidation. Those who have a lot of loans from different lenders will benefit most from this because as soon as the process is completed, they will no longer send a lot of payments but rather a single one and towards their chosen loan consolidation company. One of the things that you would need to remember in looking for such a company is the interest rate that they will give you. It should be competitive enough in order for you to save a lot.

If you have a total outstanding unsecured debt of more than $10,000, you would be happy to know that these are your two best bets.

Why You Should Declutter Your Home Fast

Mickey | Home Improvement | Sunday, February 27th, 2011

There are many ways to declutter and organize your home. But, many of them fail simply because the homeowner loses their motivation. If you take too long to get your home organized, you just don’t see results fast enough and people tend to forget why they were doing it in the first place. Other seemingly more important things will come up and the time just isn’t there to do it.

That is why you need to learn to declutter your home fast. By doing it quickly, you give yourself the chance to see real progress. Although, there is still a commitment involved, it becomes a self motivating commitment and you will tend to keep moving along towards your goal.

So, what are the steps involved? It’s easy! Get yourself a stopwatch, or if you have an extra alarm clock that will work too. Round up all of your cleaning supplies. Get some empty cardboard boxes (three or four of them). And, select an area that you want to begin in.

The trick to selecting the appropriate area is that you want to pick an area that you think you can get cleared within thirty minutes. We are going to limit our time to one half hour because it helps us keep from getting burned out. So, that area might be a closet, or some shelves, maybe one corner of a room – it doesn’t matter, as long as it can be done in your allotted time frame.

Start your timer and begin sorting through everything. Separate items for donation, to sell, to throw away, and to keep (very few of these). Once your timer goes off, and if you selected your cleaning area right, you should be done with that spot.

If you have more time, move on to the next spot. Otherwise, start a new one the next day. You will see results fast!
