Pullout couch

Image result for pull out couch

Having family and friends stay over at your home is fun, which is why many people make it a point to get sofa beds (aka sleeper couches and pullout sofas ) and/or futons. These instant beds are extremely convenient, and you can put just about anywhere around the home.

Sofa beds and futons are especially great if you do not have a formal guest room. Maybe you can repurpose another room. By way of example, they can be placed in an office, living room, or family room where it will mainly be a couch, but when overnight guests arrive, you will have an instant bed.

Sizes

With this in mind, have a look at the space you have available, and decide on the size required for your convertible sleeper. They are usually advertised as full-size or queen beds, but hardly any are twin size.

Linens

You will want to buy the right size of bed linens for your sofa bed or futon.

When you’re shopping, notice that the mattress is significantly thinner than a regular mattress. Consequently, it’s crucial that you read the informational pamphlet that comes with it to verify the exact dimensions. You will need these to know whether you should groom it with conventional full-size sheet sets, or if it requires special bedding. Because there’s a large and diverse market of sofa beds and futons, some will need regular linens while others need specially-ordered sheets.

Padding

Due to the thinness of sofa bed mattresses, your guests may feel the frame underneath. We suggest you place additional padding, such as a featherbed or a mattress topper, under the linen. This will give the mattress more cushioning, mitigate the feeling of the framework beneath, and make it a much more comfortable experience for the guest.

You and your guests need not dread the sofa bed or futon experience. With some consideration for your guests’ comfort, your sofa bed or futon can give comfort, support, and a great sleeping-away-from-home experience!

Congratulations, and allow the guests arrive!

Is your dog depressed?

Boxer, Dog, Lazy, Animal, Boxer Dog

What if recently, you’ve been noticing your pet sleeps abnormally (more than normal ), eats less, seems sad, and spends all its time moping around the home. All these behaviors are completely opposite to their normal behavior. Without a doubt, you might start to worry! Depression is what your furry friend may be experiencing. This problem is not dissimilar to that of humans.

You’re used to seeing your pet happy because he or she’s always there for you whenever you’re down. The mere thought of visiting your furry friend crestfallen makes you ill. Now it’s your turn to be there for him or her. How do you cheer up your very best friend? What are some of the methods you can use?

If your furry friend is depressed, here are 8 strategies to use to cheer up him/her:

  1. Spend ample time with your pet

One of the most effective ways to cheer up pets is by spending more time together, especially when they’re depressed. Now, more than ever, he or she needs you – your undivided attention. Spending quality time together shows your pet how much you love and cherish them. To transit from the pits to his/her joyful, happy self, simply give your pet your support, care, and love.

  1. Indulge your pet in outside activities

Whether you own a cat or a dog, taking him for an enjoyable afternoon out in the park is a powerful way of cheering him up. In the beginning, the pet won’t look enthusiastic. However, as you two enjoy each other’s company, you will be amazed by how jovial he will turn out to be.

  1. Show your pet you’re happy

Did you know pets and dogs are extremely smart when it comes to telling if you’re happy, just by looking at your face?

  1. Socialize your pet

Is your dog or cat miserable because they lost a companion or family member? If yes, then you want to take your pet to the park, or to a daycare centre, where he or she can socialize with others. According to research, animals like same-species companionship.

5.

This strategy is more of a positive reinforcement. When he or she shows any sign of getting over depression, you should give your pet a treat or pat on the head. It’s important to be aware that you shouldn’t be overly sympathetic as this will encourage others to remain depressed so as to enjoy the same attention. You will need to show him or her how pleased you are anytime he or she eats foods correctly, or plays you in the park.

6.

Does your cat or dog have a favorite toy? A excellent way to cheer up your cat is by giving him or her toys to play with. Most pets have a tendency to find comfort in familiarity. They will be more cheery if they are around their favorite toys.

  1. Play Them some music

In the same way music calms and soothes human beings, most pet owners admit that audio is also magical to pets. Surprisingly, you’ll be able to lift up the mood of your pet by playing her or him some soothing music. Just make certain that the volume isn’t too significant. The last thing you want is to make matters worse.

8.

If possible, bring your entire family with you when stepping outside for a ride. In addition to enjoying the family’s company, he or she will also enjoy the fresh air.

You have to find ways to cheer them up as soon as possible. The above are some simple ways you can cheer your pet.

The Cross

Cross, Sky, Clouds, Christian Cross

Finally, Pilate asked the people,”What shall he do with Jesus,” and they replied,”Crucify him! Crucify him!” The”him” being referred to is the son of man, or the non-integrated self, further suggesting the fruits of the binding influence of spiritual ignorance.

Therefore, the statement”Crucify him” isn’t about crucifying a physical person, but instead about crucifying the duality nature inherent in the human psyche (generationally). It represents the causal separation from God at the individual level. In addition,”Crucify him!” Means integrating duality, or the lower nature with the higher. Prior to integration, this life dynamic governs life. Thus the term Roman governor represents the dialogue patterns of air-conditioning. “Crucify him!” Is also referring to crucify the son of man, the emotional attachment to this residual conditioning, as well as the fruits of the material world, and to uninterrupted mental activity. Son of man is symbolic for development out of the material world of delusion, and into soul re-Membering, or divine consciousness! Thus, when our Herod temperament, the ruler of the lower self, is crucified, we come upon Son of God status, or the Light of the purified soul.

Consider: it was the Roman soldiers that nailed Jesus to the cross. Roman soldiers symbolize being compelled to sin before integration, which is only the experiential degree of separation. In denying this, ascension out of duality is thwarted, thus prolonging suffering. The nailing of hands and feet signify the inability of the divine expression of the mind-body, or the inability of the mind to comprehend true spirituality. The Crown of Thorns symbolize victory over both these limitations, and the eyebrow Blood represents the flow of Christ-consciousness.

What’s’the Cross’ and why take it up and follow Me?

It was added in order to show what wrongdoing is”.

The cross itself (as separate from the crucifixion) symbolizes the horizontal and vertical planes of existence. It’s this life in duality that we need to focus attention on. We will need to constantly reflect. This is the spiritual homework assignment we all must be engaged in.

The opposite of love is duality which is rooted in fear and which represents the perishable rather than imperishable love or absolute existence. However, this duality is there by divine design. It exist to teach us vital lessons so that we may experience soul development. We spiritually evolve so that we may consciously recognize individual wrongdoing, and thereby take up our cross and align our spirit to the vertical path of life. Duality is the medium by which the human soul needs to wake. This is when the”follow Me” part of biblical instruction is accomplished.

In practical terms, it’s the psychological media of the enslaved lower human nature that is taken up – rendered harmless to spiritual development. To put it differently, sub-conscious activity is neutralized through conscious expansion. Prior to soul-freeing, the conscious mind was rendered powerless in regards to the seriousness of negative thought patterns.

To make sub-conscious integration conceptually grasping, think about a volcano erupting to the sky; in human terms, it is the upheaval of submerged emotional thought patterns into conscious awareness. When deep-rooted mind-sets get thrown upwards for conscious reflection, they eventually become incorporated. This is the way the brain returns to fullness height; the soul freed in to understanding its true unbounded nature. When horizontal and vertical become ONE, as divine consciousness, then you’ve got the lamb lying down together with the wolf.

Gal 3:23 states:

“Before the time for faith come, the law (binding influence of lower nature) kept us all locked up as prisoners until the coming faith shall be revealed”. This means that before transcendental awareness, the legislation is unyielding.

Additionally, Col 2:14-15:”he cancelled the unfavourable record of our debts with its binding principles, and did away with it completely by nailing it to the Cross (by knowing duality thus do we transcend it). And from that cross (duality) freed himself from the power of the spiritual rulers and authorities” (freed from the binding legislation, from the hostage-taking nature of the subconscious authority, perpetrator of human and international sin). This scripture is telling us: bring the interior Vertical light to rid of the horizontal darkness or soul slumbering.

We might remember also, when the biblical tombstone was rolled back, the apostles reported that the tomb (the mind / body) empty, empty of sub-conscious character, meaning that the mind-body dynamic was purified into Ascension consciousness. Jesus, we read, then appeared to his disciples (our personal purified consciousness).

The disciples are emblematic of inner-body mechanisms known as the 12 cranial nerves. These cranial nerves are responsible for every human action, to include spiritual development. Thus the disciples are employees serving the body-soul dynamic into coming upon the inner Christ, thereby enabling God-consciousness realization. With the cranial nerves becoming purified, consciousness is empowered in perceiving spiritually, experience transcendentally. Thus, awakening these Manna-distributing stations are vital for soul nourishment and total development of physical and spiritual well-being.

And while the physical body is a creation of the universal life-force, the soul’s Core Flame is not. The spirit, therefore, being the conduit of God-nature experiencing, and having entered the body, awaits awakening into religious nature by way of conscious contact with the universal life-force or kundalini located at the base of the spine. It is this conscious contact – at the coccyx area of the spinal column – which ignites the kundalini, resulting in awakening of the soul’s higher spiritual dimensions in the mind.

Duality – means of Unity.

Duality therefore constitutes the law of opposites: good, bad, love, hate, right, wrong, etc. Believe, Noah’s Ark (individual human mind) and both of everything taken into it – symbolism of duality content. The Ark, we remember, came to rest on a Mount, meaning, the mind in meditation transcends duality and settles into Higher Self, into Bliss-consciousness. By entering the body/mind meditationally, the brain eventually transcends its limitation and false identity, becomes attracted to Truth, soul-consciousness and unbounded awareness.

Gal 3-25 puts it:”Now that the time for religion (transcendental consciousness) is here (direct experience), the Law is no longer in charge of us”. Again, by inputting meditationally to the body / duality, the brain gets to experience transcendentally, gets to know what neutralizes the legislation, knowing which, similar to Noah’s Ark, the brain depends upon Mount or Unity consciousness, maximum level of human evolution.

Jesus puts it John 2:19:”I will knock this temple down (duality character ) and rebuild it in three days” – 3 symbolizing Unity, and days, period of transforming consciousness.

Similar to faith-consciousness, attaining Unity isn’t an exercise of memory referencing and intellectualizing of scriptures only. Similarly, as soon as a gap in our thought cycle seems, Unity becomes experiential. By regularly expanding the thought-gap, expanding stillness and silence tolerance in mind, the Sun or Unity consciousness becomes ever-present bliss-consciousness.

As duality nature and sub-conscious content conspire at forming human consciousness – that which preserves lower human nature – thus, unwittingly, through spiritual ignorance, do we create the very conditions for the purpose of transmuting such consciously.

Jesus carrying the cross through public roads, with soldiers whipping and driving him , symbolizes the choice-less dynamic, before spiritual awakening, of sub-conscious content in our daily life. Jesus fell 3-times – 3 representing Divinity – significance, we have each fallen from Divinity by way of this inherited duality / lower nature. But, then, this is exactly why we came to planet earth: to consciously transcend such, thereby understanding Higher states of consciousness.

Reality of Existence

The truth of our presence is two-fold: we’re both relative and absolute concurrently. But in the early stages of religious development, human consciousness is aware only in the relative-duality, and non-aware in Absolute-Unity status. This is because, at nervous system level, a medium of experiencing higher consciousness hasn’t been set-up – the biblical veil has not been rented.

To put it differently, before Self-realization the human nervous system functions in mono or duality awareness only; the nervous system is reflecting only what is setup, reflecting only what has been cultured into it. Thus, for the nervous system to have any expertise, there must be a corresponding experience set up, a reflective lively capable of knowing simultaneous consciousnesses. In this circumstance, to experience Unity or transcendental nature, the nervous system needs to be cultured into withstanding such. We can’t arrive at higher states of consciousness by an act of will or enforced belief systems. In attaining higher states of consciousness, a practical means of internal culturing is required; a process that involves natural harmonization of left-side and right-side brain. This full brain encountering enables the understanding and retention of both eternal unity and comparative duality consciousness simultaneously.

Alternating between transcendental silence in meditation and worldly activity after meditation, over time transforms the nervous system / brain whereby simultaneous-knowing capacity of absolute and comparative / duality is maintained – human life staying permanently under Higher Self guidance while still at the relative world. When both aspects of our existence co-exist as a Whole, making the kingdom of heaven within a conscious reality: experiential beyond dogma, philosophy and belief systems.

Total Potentiality

The understanding of such Essence is through the physical body, in particular, the intellect. In bringing the wisdom to convergence, to stage awareness between the eyebrows in meditation, the intellect, emotions, senses and will, each become Essence aligned, cosmically firing, made Resolute. Such is when setup in the brain / nervous system allows for Absolute Potentiality or Infinite Intelligence become aware reality, becomes recognized brain-nervous system consciousness – Awareness rooted eternally in Divine Essence, in Vertical Will.

Such is what makes comprehending the next scripture so absolutely vital: John 12:32″and I, (human intellect, emotion, senses and will) if I be lifted up from this earth (ascension out of duality, lower world, lifted from normal human consciousness) shall draw all men (manifestations of balanced emotions and soul-centered decision making) unto me” (unto Divine Consciousness).

As we can see, before spiritual awakening, we’re each as spiritually dead, needing’lift up’ – unaware of our inherent absolute status. Due to this spiritual death, individual inner Christ or Higher Self remains temporarily from Commission, buried by accumulations of non-neutralized lower-self energy patterns. Thus the buried Christ known in scripture is not referring to a historical person, but to our own Christ within anticipating Resurrection into our consciousness.

So, finally, let’s establish exactly what”take up thy cross” IS NOT. It’s two beams of wood on our shoulder or on anybody else’s shoulder. Nor is it about enduring some life-situation heroically to be able to please God. And although maybe conditioned by literal Bible interpretation into believing this way, this scripture isn’t remotely about either of both of these examples.

In conclusion,

“And I myself will send upon you what my father has promised (our own indwelling Christ). However, You must wait at the City (meditate, transformation of human consciousness) until the energy from above (Divine Light) comes down upon you (our soul awakening)” Luke 24-49

Wasting time on social media

Smartphone, Screen, Social Media

When I was walking past a few stores quite a few weeks back, I saw that there were lots of people in their Smartphone’s. As it was not busy, these folks were busy using their Smartphone’s.

This did not come to mind because I thought that these people should be reading novels, though.

It came to mind because I believed they would get a lot more from reading novels than they would by using their device. Rather than scrolling through different social networking sites, they would have the ability to expand their mind with new information.

Now, there’s always the possibility that these folks were reading an eBook on their apparatus or that they were sending important messages. I don’t have any method of demonstrating that these folks were using different social networking sites.

A Frequent Occurrence

However, even though these people were using their time in a productive fashion, it does not mean that they will always use their time this way. What’s more, there are undoubtedly a great deal of folks who do spend a whole lot of their time working with these sites.

When I was able to spend a decent amount of time using different social networking sites before, time just seemed to fly by.

Meaningless Messages

This was a time when I’d send messages to people I really saw in the actual world and to people I had not seen in years. So, while a reasonable quantity of dopamine was released in my own, not much else happened.

I came to find that I could use my time better, which induced me to cut down the amount of time that I typically spent on those websites.

If you can realize that you’re spending a good amount of time on social websites every day, and you need this to change, there are loads of other things which you could do with your time. There are a myriad of books which you may read, if studying is the thing; if it is not, you can try a new hobby.

In the short term, it may not seem like what you’re doing isn’t having much of an influence on your life, but as time passes, you may see just how much you’ve learned by spending less time on social networking. Additionally, some of the time that you spent on social websites will now go towards your objectives, which makes it easier for you to reach them.

Conclusion

The modem day world is indeed full of distractions it can be easy to become lost in what’s happening’out there’ and to forget about what’s happening internally. Tuning into what things is challenging with so many distractions and, once we’ve completed this, it requires a concerted effort to not be drawn off course from the bright lights which are all around us.

His insightful commentary and analysis covers all aspects of human transformation, such as love, partnership, self-love, and inner consciousness. With over two thousand in-depth posts highlighting human psychology and behaviour, Oliver offers hope together with his sound advice.

The Great Joy

Great Grand Dad, Great Grand Children
Grandparents the world over are finding they are being thrust into parenting roles, which leaves them drained and some not able to cope. The situation is driven by the need of parents to get ahead and they are pushed by financial burdens and needs into a situation where their children must be cared for out of the home. This involves child-minding by other people and it usually falls into the seniors in order to save money.
The world has changed considerably from the days when girls were home makers. Now it is accepted that they have to do their but to earn income and share the burden of home ownership and other things they require. It is, however, a case of whether or not the older folk can actually replace the parents in their new role.
Many are elderly and some infirm and just carrying a kid in is a burden. In recent conversations with grandmothers who have this situation one, who’s over 60, has to look after some 12 grandchildren during school holidays an at other times 6 of them. She listed the burden of cost since there is no monetary compensation for what she does. Meals, snacks, and even clothing are paid for from her pension.
While a trip to the lake where there are amazing facilities for walking and spending time the amount of grandparents pushing young children in strollers or kicking balls around with them around the oval is telling. This was especially evident during the recent school holidays.
There is no solution to this problem because the focus of everyone appears to be on making money as opposed to caring for children. That lets the question of whether or not having grandchildren is a joy or a greatly overrated occasion.

Visiting the Dead Sea

Dead Sea, Israel, Shore, Beach, Dead Sea

The Dead Sea

Dead Sea, situated in the south of the Jordan Valley, the salty closed sea 400 meters below sea level is the lowest spot on Earth. The scenery on the shores of the sea in enchanting.
The Dead Sea is famous for its extraordinary salt and mineral content, which lots of folks say makes it a natural healing agent for skin issues. To ORDER The Dead Sea Products Click HERE. Or visit http://www.giftsfromtheholyland.com. Or call TOLL FREE 1-888-336-3275. People from all over the world have been visiting the Dead Sea for several years for curative treatments and to enjoy its relaxing waters.

5.000 Years of History

King David, King Herod, Jesus, and John Baptist were closely linked with the Dead Sea and its surroundings. The prophets understood it via the infamous Sodom and Gomorra. During the Egyptian conquest it is said that Queen Cleopatra obtained exclusive rights to build cosmetic and pharmaceutical factories in the area. Aristotle wrote about the remarkable waters. In Roman times the Essenes settled in Qumran on the Dead Sea northern shore for a place of refuge and on the heights of Masada a small group of rebellious Jewish zealots held out against the might of the Roman Legion. The remoteness of this area attracted Greek Orthodox monks since the Byzantine era. Their monasteries such as Saint George in Wadi Kelt and Mar Saba in the Judean Desert are places of pilgrimage. Bedouin tribes have always lived in the area and more recently explorers and scientists came to analyze the minerals and conduct research into the unique climate. Since the 1960’s, tourists from all of the world have also researched the Dead Sea area.

The Lowest Point on Earth

Situated on the heart of the Great Syrian-African rift valley that stretches throughout Israel and beyond, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth (400 meters or 1,320 feet below sea level), and is flanked by the Judean Mountains on the west, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Mountains of Moab on the east, the Jordan Valley and Sea of Galilee to the north and the Negev Desert in Addition to the Red Sea to the south.

The Dead Sea Water

The water of the Dead Sea contains 21 minerals including magnesium, calcium, bromine and potassium. 12 of them are found in no other area or ocean and some are recognized for imparting a relaxed feeling, nourishing the skin, activating the circulatory systems and for easing rheumatic discomfort and metabolic disorders. For instance, the Dead Sea contains 10 times more salts and minerals than the Mediterranean Sea. The high salt and mineral concentration enables everyone to float in its waters but does not enable the proliferation of fish and other marine life.

Thermo-mineral Springs

Found in several locations along the Dead Sea shores. The many minerals in the warm water are dominated by sulfur. Soaking in the heated sulfur pools activates the circulatory system and increases the oxygen supply to your system.

Natural mineral spring water

Flows in the Judean Hills to the lower areas fronting the Dead Sea. When hiking along the area’s”wadis” (seasonal dry river beds) and oasis, an individual can often splash in waterfalls and cool streams. Natural mineral spring water is bottled and locally promoted around the country.

The Sun

The Dead Sea is the only place in the world where you can sunbathe for extended periods with little or no sunburn because harmful ultraviolet rays are filtered through three natural layers: an additional atmospheric layer, an evaporation layer which exists above the Dead Sea and a rather thick ozone layer.

The Air
The region’s miraculous atmosphere is dry, unpolluted and pollen-free with low humidity. Due to the continuous evaporation, the atmosphere contains high concentrations of several minerals, mainly bromine, providing a genuinely calming effect.

Because of the high barometric pressure it’s approximately 8 percent more oxygen than anywhere else in the world and thus makes breathing easier.

Black Mud

A signature element of the Dead Sea, black sand is homogeneous mixture of Dead Sea minerals, important organic elements in the shoreline as well as earth. Indulging in a black mud body wrap has both cosmetic and therapeutic benefits – known to cleanse and stimulate the skin, relieve muscle and psychological tensions, improve blood flow, and ease rheumatic pain. The abundant minerals as well as the mud tightening action promote flow by increasing the supply of oxygen to and removing the toxins from the skin, thus firming and toning up skin cells, leaves the skin glowing and youthful looking. Dead Sea Mineral Mud cleans, purifies, and restores the skin’s natural minerals.

The Salt

As the name implies, the Dead Sea is devoid of life due to an extremely high content of salts and minerals. It’s these natural components which gave the water its curative powers. Dead Sea Salt and Dead Sea Mud have been recognized by millions of people as one source of health and beauty since the days of Herod the Great, over 2,000 years ago. The Dead Sea has a 33% concentration of salts and minerals (compared to only 3% in the sea ). Dead Sea Salt original mineral composition improves cell metabolism and leads to its restoration and regeneration. Dead Sea Salt also acts as a disinfectant and help in removing harmful substances from the skin.

Black Men Today

Black And White, People, Couple, Happy

I hear you say, Before you get on your high horse, just allow me to say that I have spoken to loads of my buddies about this, Black and White and all of them agreed with what I had to say. . .So Can I continue? Cool! .

Yes, being a young black man and living in the UK or in my case London daily it can be as indicated a roller coaster ride. Here are just a few of the examples of the Highs and Lows of being a Black man, well for me anyway!

Firstly I have to say, the something that gets me is the staring, it is the obvious low!

White women, white men, Chinese people etc, they stare, it’s funny but Indian Men and Women don’t stare as much, maybe they feel safe or are just use to the same treatment! Who knows? I mean I could walk on any street, day and night and its always the same, take only the other day, it was 5pm on a Thursday, it was a lovely day, there I was walking up a very prominent road near Holland park, near where I actually live, I walk on the right hand side of any street or road, I do not know why its just my way! So as I was walking, playing songs from my ipod and taking in the sights of the lovely beautiful Houses on this street. Ahead of me I could see a very attractive woman and yes she was white, as I got closer to this lady I noticed that she had been looking directly at me, I thought to myself great she is stunning and she is looking at me, cool! But as we got nearer she paused and crossed over to the other side of the street and as she did, she kept looking back at me. . .Hmm! I thought to myself, not great! Now again, do not fly of the deal but to me it looked like she was scared of me or found me threatening. Which is understandable in this day an age with the way society is but what got me was that this street was fairly long and if she wished to cross over why did not she do it much earlier? But it got worse for me that particular day because within a minute or two. . .it happen again and this time the lady was much older. I was beginning to think that I must seem like a ideal villain in spite of the fact that I was dress quite decent plus I had been carrying my guitar (instance ) on my shoulders.

This could be just the area of Holland Park I hear you say but I will tell you that this occurs every other day to me and also to most Black Men around the united kingdom. We won’t speak about the police and the stop and search variable but I will say that, that’s only gone completely over the top, too much stories to tell so I’ll stop there because that’s just the one of those lows, now allow me to give you a top, I think you deserve to hear the positives in addition to the downsides but after hearing it, would you say it was a positive thing or a negative thing?

Well! . .one of the best things about being a Black Man is the way Women perceive us, Black men attract women in a different way than the normal man, or should I say a white man. White men will always get women because it’s their world and that is fine by me but being Black we’ve got something that they will never have and know. We’ve got the difference! Women who like this gap may tell you, they like it because they just prefer black guys, I think that there is a deeper meaning to the madness. I think it comes down to one thing and that’s fear. I can practically hear you all say, what the hell is this guy talking about? Well take it from me; we know that if we want something and we know we can’t have it, we tend to go out of our way to get it and that is how all of this started, it’s just progressed quietly within different generations, cultures and life generally.

Good to know…

I have travelled around the world and every time I leave the UK I am always racially abused in some way, from airport security around the world to European towns in which there are zero Black guys and so as soon as you get of the plane you become like a alien and everyone stares at you and sees the difference I have been talking about. But going back to the girls for a second or two, they do tend to see something else than their male counterparts. Most times it’s good for me, sometimes it’s not but being just a man you can’t always get the girl! Different women from all over the world prefer a certain type of man, be it about their religious beliefs, or sexually traits or even their fear of the distinction, What I’ve seen and have made a note of is that Asian women i.e. Chinese or Indian won’t be seen dead using a Black guy, Eastern women are a bit different, the new generation of young girls do find Black men more attractive but that is based on the nationality of the Black male. American women are certainly mixing it at the moment much more than ever but that’s down to the way Black men are portrayed in the USA. English Women are showing signs but for me in cosmopolitan London. Irish and Scottish White women will not go down that road. The welsh women are far more receptive to the idea but generally there is still segregation amongst the mixing of Black Men and White Women around the world, again for me it’s very much understandable.

In my case I get lots of attention from White women in fact a great deal more than I’d get from Black ladies, so what does that tell you! If you don’t believe me just check out any dating site, that’s where all of the evidence is. Just look at what the women want and you will see. . .90percent of the women want white men and only 10% do not care what the guy looks like. Why, Well! Again that’s just the way the world is, taste is very important to most people.

So the ride continues. . .we have had our ups and downs, what more can I add, well the worse part of this ride for me is straightforward and it is how society sees Black men as a whole! This is a touchy subject that haunts me to the core of my soul but what people really don’t understand is that being Black we see things very easy, we do not go around thinking we’re better than anyone that’s the first thing, we don’t see racism through our eyes when we look at a different culture, we do not question why you are that color and why we are this colour but with how we’ve been duped by the planet with easy things like Great is shown by the colour White and Bad is revealed as Black, its easy things like this that continues beliefs in white culture which color Black should be feared.

Also the absence of White people around the World, not knowing just where they come from and their own history, Being a Black Man or Black Woman we naturally want to understand our roots and we pursue this everyday and the majority of the new generation of Blacks around the world know much more about where they come from, much more than a White Person. The History of Black people is seldom told so we’re left to our own devices to find the questions and answers so that we can be the proud people and race which we are today. Bear in mind this is just my view point of the situation about being a Black. Yours may be different but that is what makes us the people we are. So now and the next day and the months and years ahead I will continue my Roller Coaster Ride as a Black guy and hopefully I will see some changes in my time, Hopefully!

Whats got UFO fans stirred up

Science Fiction, Alien, Futuristic, Ufo

Believers and long-time investigators of Unidentified Flying Objects phenomena expressed disappointment regarding the way Peter Jennings handled the ABC News Special Report recently led to the United States television audience.

Attendees of the 14th ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL UFO CONGRESS CONVENTION and FILM FESTIVAL held March 6-12, 2005 in Laughlin, Nevada talked publicly of having expected too much. They expected Peter Jennings Special ABC News Report on UFOs to leave non-believers with a positive impression of this often disputed topic. However, despite such persuasive research, photographs, and documentation as was made available to the show’s producers to utilize by valid investigators, ABC still elected to not use most of the best material.

“The first hour of the broadcast was great,” said one disappointed viewer. “Then, in the second half, they turned it around in such a way as to leave millions undecided. ABC’s experts were skeptical of eye-witness sightings, and ignored any official cover-up or disinformation agenda regarding UFOs, extraterrestrials, flying saucers, and alien abductions by our government.”

In startling contrast to the Jennings’ report with its own convenient,”Computer generated animation’s” the well informed 700 UFO Congress attendees saw”Actual time/dated video footage.” A demonstration showing hundreds of UFOs, extraterrestrial, or alien aerial craft has been presented by Mexico’s most respected,”60 Minutes”,”Sunday To Sunday”, and”ECO” anchor & esteemed journalist, Jaime Maussan.

Maussan was but one of those over one-dozen distinguished speakers, scientists, researchers, UFO investigators, retired military analysts, renowned authors, university professors, and internationally acclaimed experts, assembled from around the world, who presented conclusive evidence of ordinary alien visitations to Earth Earth.

The worldwide view was overwhelmingly positive in agreement that UFOs are real and the consequences of the growing willingness to allow themselves to be filmed is another indication that the people of this planet needs to be brought up to speed.

The Safespace News Agency, a fact based video News Magazine has been established on the premise that THE MAINSTREAM NEWS IS THE COVER-UP!

According to Safespace North American manufacturer, Robert D. Miles,”Our journalists at http://SafespaceProject.com are ready to debunk the debunkers,” he promised. “We are getting ready to tell the world the real story of what’s really going on, on a planetary basis. Viewers will see our world as it actually is, not as they’re currently being told it is, from the mainstream media.

In the near future, stirred-up UFO advocates may not be let-down.

Easy Way for Cheaper Gas

Pump Jack, Oilfield, Oil, Fuel, Industry

Very once in a while, someone starts a campaign to lower gasoline prices by urging everyone not to purchase any gas on a certain date. The preferred date is far enough in the future to allow for a massive e-mail and newscast campaign to spread the news far and wide across the land and get everyone geared up for the big moment. The idea is that the resulting surplus of unsold gas would force distributors to reduce the prices so as to be able to unload the stuff. There are just two problems with that idea: 1) almost no one participates and 2) those who do participate buy their gas the day before or the day after the target date, so the net result is the same amount of gas is sold and the cost stays too high.

I have noticed that many motorists completely ignore the speed limit on the freeway. Where I live, the freeway speed limit in town is 65 mph. It’s quite possible to drive that fast in the right hand (“slow”) lane and have people come up on your bumper and give you an annoyed look as they move around you because they think you are driving too slowly! 80 mph in the left hand (“quickly” or”passing”) lane is normal, as are people in hurry braiding in and out of lanes because they believe their time is more important than yours and you are in their way. You may not want to hear this, but such driving wastes gas! The same gas you whine and moan about every time you fill out in the pump gets wasted out on the freeway by such drivers. Maybe even YOU???

According to the site Howstuffworks, the ideal mileage can be achieved by driving between 40-60 mph. Now I’m here to tell you that driving 40 mph on the freeway will get you one of 3 things: 1) a ticket for impeding the flow of traffic 2) to – or getting the cause of – and injury 3) killed. However, driving at 60 mph will not cause any more dirty looks than driving at 65, provided that you remain in the right hand lane. You won’t result in any accidents, and you won’t get a ticket for impeding traffic.

Now I can hear you already:”However, I’m late!” Plan ahead, and leave a few minutes earlier. Consider it for a minute. If you drive 65 mph for one whole hour, you’ll only be 5 miles farther down the road that if you drove 60 miles for that same hour. Those of you who spend a whole hour commuting are usually not driving 65 miles. You’re driving more like 10 miles, crawling along at running speeds. This won’t work for that sort of commute. However, if your drive is such that you have the choice of driving faster than 60 mph, DON’T! Establish your cruise control at 60 mph, slow down and save.

The great thing about the system is that you benefit from it even if nobody else participates! There’s a very real possibility that you could fill up your tank one less time per month. That would save you $20-$50 per month, which is $240-$600 each year. Spend it on Christmas presents. Splurge a little on your vacation. There are lots of ways you could enjoy the excess money. And if other people participate, because more and more people are buying one less tank of gasoline per month, the distribution would go up because the demand would be down, which would mean lower costs which would benefit everybody (except possibly OPEC, and they do not need the money.) Try it!
