Holiday Gifts

Trying to decide on a gift for that special someone for the holiday?  Gift baskets are great selections for a gift, because it can consist of a variety of selections of a person's favorite items. Gift baskets can also be made and put together or you can also purchase premade gift baskets as well.  Some baskets come with items such as summer sausages, crackers, and an assortment of cheese, while others can be for pampering such as scented bubble baths, lotions, and body sprays.

You can also build a gift basket, and add decorative mugs, hot chocolate, a favorite book, and perhaps a blanket. This would make the perfect gift for someone who enjoys to read and cuddle up on cold winter days or nights. Gift baskets can be created into almost anything, and the imagination is the limit.

Holiday Decorations

Thanksgiving and Christmas are upon us very soon. We will be decorating tables with centerpieces, and making our homes have an atmosphere of comfort and joy... A beautiful way to add some color to a room is to add Flowers. Roses, tulips, pine sprigs, and poinsettias can brighten up a room with holiday flair.

Creating centerpieces can be easy and low cost as well. Use a variety of sizes of pillar candles, add some fruit or nuts, and a bouquet of flowers to place in the middle of a table. Top it off with a decorative or seasonal table runner or table cloth. You can even find items from home like a collection of shells, or pretty glasses that you can put items in. Table centerpieces don't necessarily have to be fancy and expensive.

Escape into comfort, through the story in your book...

There's nothing more important than promoting reading in a child's life-or even beginning it in adulthood. Reading helps us learn more about the English language, better our vocabulary, and broaden our horizons and imaginations. It is also a great stress reliever and promotes wonderful relaxation before bedtime. Google is also taking it's part in promoting reading.  Google is creating a domain where you can download over a million different books online!  This is a wonderful idea, for those who may not have access to the books they desire or need.

Often, sometimes children don't like to read because of uncomfortable positions, or they just picture themselves sitting at a school desk, in an uncomfortable plastic or wooden chair, and reading.  Reading should be enjoyable, comfortable, and fun.  When you are sitting at a desk, with a hard back, not to mention-no cushion for your behind, of course-it isn't going to sound exciting or fun!

If you are a parent, why not set up a reading spot in the home?...  Set it up by a window with a peaceful setting.  Perhaps showing the outsidewith a tree neabry, or flowers in the yard, or at least have a place that doesn't show a road with traffic that can disturb the thought process. When you read, you must have comfortable seating.  Nobody wants to sit in a hard chair, an office chair, or even the floor for that matter. Try a bean bag!...

Set up two spaces in the home. One for the children, and one for the adults. offers creative and fun designs for children that will entice them to sit down, and explore their books!  Try a bubbly design chair and pair it with a bright colored rug-such as yellow or green. Be sure that the rug is a fuzzy one too!... And then add some matching pillows, or even a stuffed animal.  Set aside a time of day for your child to read and make sure it is the same time every day. This will get your children on a regular reading schedule. Try 20-30 minutes at a time.

-Now if you are an adult, and you have had a rough day at work, and you want to escape the voice of your demanding boss, or fly away from the paperwork still at your desk, come home to your favorite books.  For adults, you may want something neutral, and calming. Think of cotton and something soft.  Ahh offers a lime organic bean bag where you can choose the filling of your choice. Lay out a matching rug, some soft cozy blankets, and a few pillows.  Place it in an area of your home free of traffic. Most of the time-this place could be somewhere in the bedroom.  Put a few of your favorite books nearby, and it can be your escape from a fast and furious workplace.

If you don't have access to a book you have been wanting to read, be sure to check out Google, and their new domain.  Cuddle up with your laptop or an electronic reading device to read one of their books that you may have just downloaded.  Once you find that favorite story to escape for-just don't forget to have plenty of light for your reading... Put a lamp nearby, and dive into stories of romance, crime, justice, adventure, or travel to a land that you have never been.  When you have comfort mixed in with a great story, reading can be one of the best ideas, that you ever had.

***For more ideas on promoting literacy and reading, be sure to check out the 
Literacy project that Google is helping to promote as well...

How to Set up a Trust Fund for your Child...

For parents, setting up a trust for your child can often be a very lucrative and intelligent decision. Trust funds are often used for college expenses, weddings, or special purchases once they are out of high school. Trust funds are also very efficient if something tragic were to happen to the parents at one point in life. They also can provide a nest egg for financial security for times later on in life as well, or as a child embarks on their new life after they secure an education.......

Meet Harley SwiftDeer Reagan-The Healer/Martial Artist

(every once in awhile-I like to throw something new in my blogs--such as meeting new people, finding out about new places, products, etc---So for this new little.."meet series," check out the following about "Harley SwiftDeer Reagan...."


Harley SwiftDeer Reagan is a teacher, healer, and martial artist. He has background and education in philosophy, psychology, religion, martial arts, and ancient mystery school traditions.

In 1986, Harley SwiftDeer Reagan founded the Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society. He formed it to teach the Wheels and Keys of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.

Harley SwiftDeer Reagan states, "The Wheels and Keys of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path are tools to help heal Grandmother Earth and are dedicated to the preservation of individual autonomous freedom for all peoples to live and maintain life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, harmony, humor, health and hope."

Frank Hanna III...Says We must learn to be humble and have Faith...

Faith is something we all need these days.Sometimes--it comes to us in large doses--or small ones. Sometimes--we must build faith in our lives-especially when things seem out of sorts, or we aren't getting anywhere in life. Everybody needs faith----ESPECIALLY now..during these rough economic times and crisis...

Frank Hanna III
author of, "What Your Money Means," tells us that we need to have gratitude-and live more abundantly. Most of all-we need faith. "Frank Hanna is a frequent speaker regarding issues of faith as they pertain to business. He frequently speaks on the topic of business and philanthropy." -according to his website.
Frank Hanna III also speaks of gratitude. We must be humble, and learn how to utter the words, "Thank you." These words are very true to the people of today. Our mannerisms have left us, and many don't say the words please and thank you anymore. And when others receive help-so many have stopped saying thank you--because the help has become expected...or feel as if it were deserved. Gratitude is definitely something everybody should add to their list-and learn to respect and say the word, "thank you."

Another piece of advice, he offers, is the value of money. How we should use it towards God's plan and what God wants us to do with it. Frank Hanna II says, "Money can make a good servant; but it always makes a terrible master." We must not let money rule us our our lives or business. For those couples in financial stress--perhaps pray about it...and listen for God--see what he tells you are the best financial steps to take. Frank Hanna III informs us that we should not use money apart from God's plan.... To find out more about Mr Hannah and his can check out his book at Barnes and Nobles.

Experience the Great National Parks of the United States with YMT Vacations

If there is any natural history or natural landmarks you should visit in the United States, then perhaps, you should head out west. There's so much natural land to be seen, walked upon, and of course, experience the big blue cloud filled skies that hang high above the mountains.

I myself, live in the land of the plains... Call it flatlands-per say. While I love my small town area, the safety of the nights, and all of the wonderful people-I would love to see the mountains and the parks in person!... YMT vacations offer a land tour that lets you tour all of the great parks of the western United States. The tour from YMT vacations consist of the following destinations:
  • Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Reno, Nevada
  • Lake Tahoe
  • Yosemite National Park
  • Sequoia National Park
  • Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Zion National Park
  • Bryce Canyon National Park
  • Arches National Park
  • Kennecot Copper Mine
These parks could also be a learning experience for a family who would like to show their children--a fun part of education. While to some little ones, it may be boring or dull to read history and geography books on these locations--there is nothing more interesting and beautiful--than stepping on those grounds-literally.

If your family could find some ways to save some money, and begin to plan on tour of the western United States, then using YMT Vacations, could be a great addition to your scrapbook-and learning experience too.

Can You Pay Taxi Fair with a Credit Card?- Amos Tamam says Yes!

So, you are walking through New York City ---and you need a ride. But--you have found that you are not carrying any cash , and the nearest ATM is--not very close!... You perhaps might even need that ride to the ATM!... --But you do have your credit card---soooo? --Can you pay your taxi fare with a credit card?.. Amos Tamam, president and CEO of VeriFone Transportation Systems, started to make this possible around 2007, by installing technology in taxis, so that more riders could begin to pay their fares with cards. Some people actually may not like to carry cash in the big cities-such as New York, Chicago, --or even Vegas!--Unless you had change for the slots!---But Amos Tamam was onto something, and New York has started to implement the card paying process in their taxis. They have even realized that some of the sales increased!

Some of the beta testing in the cabs for the new technology even began to take place in the cities of Chicago, and Las Vegas. Having everything these days--on a card, and out of sight-is so much easier-and safer, than carrying a wad of cash. Cards can have a stopped service within a phone call-and many banks will contact their customers for odd transactions. Sometimes, it is just easier-to have everything all in one place-Plus-you don' thave to worry about washing your change or money through the wash. --- A card is more easier to keep track of. ---

So --next are taking a taxi ride--and you get to pay with a card-instead of the cash-you might have not taken-or laid down as a tip elsewhere-you can send a private thank you to
Amos Tamam for helping out with the latest technology.

Housing Market still slow-Rennovate with K-Designers

The economy may seem as if it could be picking up---but we still have so much more to build, and develop, and get many others into employment. Houses aren't selling as fast as they used to.... Many just don't have the money. So if you are trying to sell your house---what are some ways to help you sell it?... Perhaps-some possible renovations could help!...

K-Designers offer home renovation services to perhaps make your home more able to sell in today's market. Some services include new windows, patio doors, security doors, gutters, and more. Perhaps maybe K-Designers could help you make your home energy efficient --making your home more able to sell on the market.

K-Designers offer there services in the western part of the United States. You can see if they offer their product lines and renovations in your area by visiting their website.

Sometimes-a home just needs a little sprucing up-a bit of house-cleaning, some flowers, and just something to make it more "homey." While many may not have a lot of cash during this time-there still will be the few--looking for that perfect home to just get by for awhile...

Tax Debt and Relief

While many Americans find themselves going deeper and deeper into debt, others find themselves owing back taxes as well or are in tax debt. Tax debt can be a scary thing-especially when the IRS begins garnishing your wages, or even perhaps taking money from your bank accounts.

Even if you feel ashamed, or frightened-there are places that are available to turn to online. American Tax Relief offers services that could benefit you to help you pay your debts. There is no reason individuals should try to handle the situation on their own, if it has gotten out of control or hard to handle.

Some of the services that American Tax Relief offers are

  • Settle Tax Debt for a Fraction of the Debt
  • Stop Wage Garnishment with our tax help
  • Stop Bank Levy, tax levy, and Property Seizures
  • Stop Unbearable Monthly Payments
  • Remove Penalties, Interest, and Tax Lien
  • Settle State and Business Payroll Tax

If any of those services above, can help you handle your tax debts, American Tax Relief offers a website online for more information and contact purposes. (

While everybody has their hardships and their share of personal crisis-you are never alone. You won't be the only person to have ever suffered from tax debt, a loss of a job, loss of income, or any other setbacks.

  • What we as people go through in life-only makes us stronger in the end.

Cultural Music Inspirations..

For a bit of culture, or a different outlook on music from what you generally listen too, Mohammed Babangida can bring you some information about the influences of different styles and variations of music from around the world...

Sometimes cultural music/worldly styles/classical or band instrumentals can be different from our pop/rock, R&B, or rap music that is found and often listed to here in the United States. It can be a great learning experience to see that there are other styles and instruments that exist besides the average ones that we hear in our country.
Mohammed Babangida explains of music from Dixieland that has is inspired from New Orleans. Dixie Land consists of big band like music that involves trumpets, trombones,
clarinets (my personal fav--i played this in school!), a piano, and drums.
Mohammed Babangida describes Dixieland as "bouncy," and is "full of flair".

He then goes on to explain bout Be-Bop, West Coast Cool Jazz, Hard Jazz, Third Stream, Free Jazz, Bossa Nova, Fusion, and Neo-Classical. If you would like to learn more about different types of music, perhaps you could read his blog ... And then there's always google to search for the sounds of these types!...
You never know--you just might find a new favorite style that could inspire you!
