Bag a Bargain With A Retail Bag

Where would we be without bags to carry things in. I personally carry a bag everywhere I go it always comes in handy if I pop into a shop I don’t have to waste another plastic bag or pay for one for that matter. Bag a Bargain With A Retail BagIf I’m walking and see some blackberries I’d pick them and put them into the bag I always have. If burgers, crisps, sweets or other take away food are eaten, you are always left with rubbish from the wrapping, the bag is really useful to put the rubbish in and the contents disposed of sensibly.

Well made bags that will last for ages are far better than the flimsy throw away bags that you find given out in shops. It makes economic sense to use these longer lasting types of carrier, especially is you are a business that gives out bags for their goods. How many times have you reused a quality plastic Retail Bag? Five? Ten? I bet you are still counting the repeated use of that bag. The proof of good quality bags being more ecologically friendly is before your very eyes.

There is a company that make just the right type of bags that are fashionable, long lasting and a great aid to any business through the advertising that can be custom printed on the bags, They come in a variety of materials, shapes and sizes. These bags are ideal for companies and businesses and indeed for households.

Fail-Safe Homemade Mayonnaise

Oeufs Mayonnaise

How many of you buy mayonnaise from a shop? Most I bet and, but have you ever thought about making your own? Many have tried but have been put off with failure, I myself have ended up with a complete mess until I found a neighbour who gave me a tip on how to succeed every time. Nothing beats homemade mayonnaise if done properly, it is chemical free and a cheaper than supermarket mayonnaise.

So, here is the fail-safe recipe that you can try at home and surprise the family:


  • 2 medium sized egg yolks
  • 1 level teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon caster sugar
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons lemon juice or white vinegar
  • 1 ½ cups oil (olive or sunflower)
  • 4 teaspoons hot water


Take the yolks, salt, mustard, sugar, cayenne pepper, and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice in a small and beat with a wire beater until very thick. You can use an electric mixer set on a medium speed as an easier alternative method for whipping. Slowly dribble ¼ cup oil whilst whipping vigorously throughout.

Whilst still whipping, add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of hot water. Then put another ¼ cup of oil still whipping.

Whip in another teaspoon each of lemon juice and hot water. After this add ½ cup oil slowly poured in still beating constantly. Finally, mix in remaining lemon juice and water and slowly beat in the rest of the oil.

You can make thinner mayonnaise by adding hot water.

To store you need to put the mayonnaise in a sealed container and refrigerate until needed. It will keep up to two weeks

More tips to ensure a fail-safe mayonnaise

  • Ingredients should all be at room temperature (except the hot water of course)
  • If the oil and the yolk do not mix properly, whip in a teaspoon of hot vinegar
  • If it fails get another bowl, separate another egg yolk and use the failed mixture instead of oil. Adding it very slowly and with care

There is no way that homemade mayonnaise can fail with all this on board. ENJOY!

Air-Conditioning Systems - Servicing Saves Money

air-conditioning systems servicing saves moneyOver the last few years I have found that air-conditioning systems come into their own with cold winters and hot summers. The convenience of the air-conditioning system is second to none. Hot or Cool air flowing at the flick of a switch and less expensive than central heating systems is you home are compact.

The only problems that arise are from systems that have been installed for a while and haven't been serviced or are too old to run efficiently. It becomes more expensive to run and much worse for the environment if left unattended year in year out. It is advisable to have you air-conditioning system check out regularly by air-condition system experts who know what need to be done. It may be just a case of a simple cleaning out, or replacing a filter or two, or it could be a complete overhaul or new system needed. In all instances it is best to find out sooner rather than later.

Omaha HVAC is a company that does exactly that. It is a site that can give you the best advice on your air-conditioning system and steer you into a more economical and environmentally friendly path. If you have a air-conditioning system that hasn't been serviced for a year or so, or you are considering getting and air-conditioning system fitted in to replace an older system and you are local to them, give them a call.

I just wish we had air-conditioning services and installations locally here who can do the same job just as well with, expert advice, guarantees and peace of mind alongside.

Grow You Own Lettuce For Salads - it's Easy

Grow Your Own Lettuce for Salads - It's Easy

Lettuce is great for salads and with spring here an ideal time to grow you won. Besides the expense of buying lettuce from the supermarket, your own homegrown versions will be much more pleasurable on this vegetable that is really easy to produce. You don't even need a garden to grow your own, a soil filled small bowl on a sunny windowsill is just as effective as in a garden.

There are just a few things to remember when growing your own lettuce.

  • The roots don't like being moved or transplanted, so when you sow the seeds you should try and use a system where the roots will remain untouched throughout the growth. A good way to use this system is to grow the seeds in cardboard egg boxes, which can then be transferred into another place without disturbing the roots, and the cardboard with decompose by the time it has been harvested. You can also buy little biodegradable pots in garden centres very cheaply.
  • Lettuce like warm sunny places, so make sure the final position of your lettuce is in an environment that has these conditions for the best lettuce results. What lettuce doesn't like is excessive heat and lack of water.
  • Pests can be a problem, slugs, snails and birds etc. I don't have a problem with this and don't use anything else other than a nylon netting cover to deter birds and check the lettuce every day in the morning and evening handpicking slug and snails that leave an obvious trail. I do not use poisons although many people do.
  • Buy lettuce seeds locally, they will have varieties that are suitable for your region.
  • The soil needs to be able to retain moisture yet have enough drainage to prevent standing water. With this you are sure to get good crops from most types of soil. If you had planted the seed originally in compost based soil this will give the roots a good start before growing on.
  • Sow batches of seeds every two weeks, that way you will extend the harvesting times and have table ready lettuce for an extended period.

If you haven't tried growing lettuce before, have a go it's as easy as growing grass you'll never look back once you have tasted your own home produced salads.

Local Roofers For Local Roofs

There is a saying, 'Get your roof fixed when the sun is shining'. Well it's spring, the sun is shining, but April does bring about showers, the last thing you want is a leaking roof - Most poepl only find our when the rain falls.

Roofs are made in many styles and from many different materials all around the world. As an expatriate I certainly wouldn't get a roofer from the UK to fix my roof in Bulgaria. There is a simple reason for this; local builders know the ins and outs of local roofing. Getting someone who is not local would be a big mistake as many have found out here.

I know many people here who have presumed that a British roofer knows everything about Bulgarian roofs. It was only after the work was done and winter came along that they found out otherwise. The builder of course had been on gone by this time with now recourse – No insurance and local builders were eventually called in to repair the roof using local techniques to solve the problem

Round Rock Roofing do exactly that. They are local builders based in Texas, USA who cater for the local community who have an A+ rating with 'The Better Business Bureau'. All work is insured with liability and worker's compensation with highly qualified leaders and well-trained craftsmen on every crew.

The tip here is to only take on tried and tested local roofing experts for any roofing job; you won't have to wait for winter to arrive to find out.

Tips On Ear Health

Silver hoop earring.

Ears and their health generally look after themselves. What advice do you need to know to keep your ears in fine health indefinitely? Well here are some good bits of information to help the health of your ears remain in tiptop condition.

Wash your ears regularly with soap and water this should be done daily alongside washing other parts of your body over a sink in the bath or in a shower.

Earwax serves a purpose, it protect the ear. Don’t try and clear all the wax from the inner ear, just clean the opening of your ear gently. You can damage your ear by messing there. A cotton tip shouldn't be used either as it will force wax further into your ear and lead to infections.

You need to take care if you have pierced ears. When you get your ears pierced your earring should remain in until your ear(s) are completely healed up. If you don't do this the pieced ear could close up and you’ll need to go through the whole process again.

Newly pierced ears are prone to infection so always wash your hands before touching tem at this stage. Applying alcohol also regularly will also prevent bacteria forming. This can be done with a little cotton wool applying it to both sides of the ear and then rotating your earring to circulate the alcohol.

When water gets stuck in your ear canal, perhaps from swimming this can irritate the skin as bacteria has got hold. You can simply get special eardrops can help you get rid of this, it is know as swimmers ear. Always dry your ears after swimming and give your head a good shake to remove any water that may have got into your ears.

The sun and sunburn is a major problem for ears, always wear a hat and rub some suntan lotion on your ears. In the cold of winter keep your ears covered up with a hat or headband.

There isn't much more that you need to know to keep your ears healthy apart from avoiding excessive loud noise. Always try and block yourself away from this as it can lead to partial or total deafness later on.

Enjoy the multiple senses you get from your ears by looking after them; it’s easy and common sense in the main.

Plastic Containers - Good For the Environment

Plastic Containers - Good For the EnvironmentPlastic food containers are a passion of my mine. I know you are saying that plastic is not good for the environment and we should use recyclable products instead. Well think again.

Plastic food containers last for years. I have plastic food container that are over 20 years old and are still in use in the kitchen. Even when they lose their use as food containers I use them for gardening to propagate seeds. this extended their life even further. Surely this is recycling as well.

This only works and the recycling process made is the plastic food packaging is a high quality product that meets the highest plastic food packaging FDA and EU standards. KSK American are such a firm that make a large variety of plastic product that come in many colours and thicknesses and will suit any type of packaging needs.

So the tips here is if you are going to use plastic products, get the best quality this is more environmentally friendly than cheap throwaway version.

Treat Hotels Like Your Home

SHANGHAI, CHINA - MARCH 28:  The facade of the...

Many people use Hotels, but they are one of the biggest polluter in town. It effectively is a home from home and what you do in Hotels should really reflect your habits at home. If you care about the environment you will be thoughtful and economical at home, why not do the same as if you where at home?

Do you wash you bathroom towel every day? Do you throw away bars of soap after being once or twice? Do you use cups that are wrapped in plastic? Do you use small packets of shampoo? What about disposable bottled mouthwash? All these are bad for the environment!

So when you go to a hotel next, think ahead. Use just one towel and don't touch the others. If they are left alone the service in the hotel will know they won’t need washing. If everyone did this think of the energy and water saving made.

Pack you own toiletries. By bringing your own toiletries, you will be using less plastic. Act the same way you act at home like turning lights off that are not essential for your use. And finally a good tip is instead of using the plastic wrapped cups provided bring your own glasses.

If we all did the tips above the amount of energy and waste would be tremendous and might even warrant lower bills with the savings the hotels save!

How to Make Your Marriage Work


I suppose having been married I can call myself an expert on what makes a marriage work. Too many divorces, marriages that are living hell and the ones that suffer the most are the children. It is up to the married couple to make sure their marriage remain happy not just for themselves, but for the new generations they bring up in this difficult world.

With my 28 year of experience being married I know what makes it work so I have given 6 tips which will certainly go a long way into helping a marriage last forever.

Everyone gets angry and when you are angry the worst thing that can happen is to argue with someone else who is also angry. If you see your partner angry don't be and vice versa. One of you have to act as the calming element, it works both ways.

Throughout a marriage there will be differences of opinion. When you disagree with what your partner is saying or doing it doesn’t matter who is right or wrong, talking and more important giving time to listen to each other is important. If you still both disagree then agree to disagree calmly.

The worse thing a partner can do, apart from having an affair is to keep bring up things you have done wrong in the past. Dwelling on these really will grind a partner down. If there needs to be a reminder of bad things or mistakes in the past then just make a fleeting reference to it and use is as a positive experience and learning curve taken on board for a brighter future.

You married your partner for a reason and that reason is love. you know what you love about your partner so once a day make a point of telling them why you love them. This will go a long way to reminding each other why you are together. Sometime over a period this is forgotten so if you make a habit of saying it really will sink in again.

Give each other space. you are married and should be sp[ending the rest of your lives together, don't crowd your partner 24/7. Everyone needs a little time and space away from each other no matter what anyone says. Even if it is a weekend apart it will keep your wanting each other very much alive.

The last tips is to be yourself and individual, don't try to be anything else. This may sound strange, but some marriages don't find out the real person they have married until the acting becomes too tiring and the marriage breaks down as that person changes.

Look at your marriage right now and see whether any of these tips are being used. If you are relatively newly married then you probably won't need to follow some of them. Over a longer duration they should all be used as an aid and support a much happier relationship.
