Be Seen With New Custom Headlights For you Car (A Bicycle Idea)

I don't like cars, anyone who has read this blog may well already know about that. Give me a choice between a car and  bicycle to get from A to B any day and my preference would be a bicycle every time. However I do accept that this is now a car reliant world and many people just cant' manage without one. For those people there is a tip that I took originally from my bike riding but now is firmly a fashion in car accessories.

Getting seen is essential on a bicycle, especially at night and neon based LED lights project a far more effective light than conventional lamps so I use these type all the time. They are also more economical on the batteries and many can be charged up without the use of batteries. For a bike I have found they are functional, green, cheap and extremely effective for being seen on the roads.

The car versions of this are slightly different and more of a fashion accessory. They stand out from normal headlights and again are more than likely to turn head as you drive. Buying custom headlights is cheaper than you think for cars and like the bike version give a safer vision at night as well as being a trendy statement.

So, the bottom line is think about your night vision on your car and if you want to stand out in the world of traffic then you may well consider customising your headlights which will not harm the environment further that cars have already.

How To Look After Your Hair By Brushing Or Combing

Hair is one of the most important factors when people see you and looking after your hair will improve your esteem, social popularity and of course make you healthy as well! I have given 10 proven tips on how to look after your hair by brushing or combing. I'd wished I had taken these tips when I was younger, I might still have some hair now if I did.

1. Combing hair in the opposite direction of you natural hair growth may lead to Hair fall problems. So don't.

2. Lots of brushing will break the hair follicles and the scalp. Two or three times in a day is more than enough.

3. Take great care and concentration when combing your hair as naturally this will also cause damage.

4. Look at the type of comb you use. Is you hair hard or soft, long or short? Pick a comb that compliments your type of hair and style.

5. Wet hair that is combed or brushed is bad news. Dry your hair with a towel rub in a little oil and it makes the whole process easier and healthy.

6. Ensure that the teeth of your comb is not sharp as it will damage your scalp even with a little pressure.

7. Forceful combing in reverse direction may well cause traction baldness.

8. You comb should be cleaned before and after using it. this will stop hair and particles clamming up the gaps. This in turn would lead to combing becoming painful and difficult.

9. Hair falling out is often caused by vigorous combing.

10. Finally, do not borrow or use other peoples combs it is unhygienic and not good for you own health of your hair and general well being.

Local Insurance For Me Now After My Friend's Story

MONTECITO, CA - NOVEMBER 14:  Firefighters mop...
I have to admit I don't have house or personal insurance purely because I felt that I couldn't afford it. However after hearing what happened to a friend of mine who was in the same position their tip to me was to get insured now. This is not a advert for insurance, but a true account of a fate that could have been cushioned with it.

My friend is a business man and owns a small shop which is his home as well on the second floor. Everything he has is on the premises but not renewing his insurance for the property and contents was a cost cutting strategy that was caused by the recession. Oh what a bad decision and of course he is now looking at that decision that has ruined his life.

Only two months after he had not renewed his insurance he was broken into one night, all the valuable and much of the stock of his house and shop respectively was taken whilst he was asleep. Worse was to come, the thieves set fire to the shop before they left, but a sliver lining in the cloud saved his life as the fire alarms worked and he was woken by this and got out in time. Needless to say the building was basically destroyed and no compensation of the property or possessions. He is still counting the cost right now and trying to build up another business from scratch.

The first thing he did was to get a competitive business insurance quote to make sure that he is covered from day one. Living in Illinois he found that is was more prudent to gather quotes from Illinois business insurance sources. They know the risks locally and would of course not have to supplement to account for higher risk areas. Strangely enough is was a kind of Déjà vu as he used to live in California and get cheaper rates from local California insurance companies.

Well this leaves me quite nervous as it stands. If my house was burgled or set alight I would have nothing after these events. Perhaps right now I will look up local insurance companies right here in Yambol for quotes. I can't afford it but I have to if you know what I mean. I don't want to wait until the horse has bolted and pay the price.

This of course is a tip for everyone to take note of.

Guest Slippers - A Great Practical Tradition

A pair of low-heeled slippers.
Here's a good tip for the home if you don't already use it. Here visitors never wear their outside footwear in the home. They don't need to be asked to take their outside footwear off it is done automatically as it it a traditional thing here in Bulgaria. I the UK this is not the case and I cant' understand why.

You home is your pride, the last thing you want is guests tramping muck from the streets onto you floor and carpets that you spend so long maintaining. In fact I now consider it rude and inconsiderate for any guest not to take their footwear off before entering the host's home. The best tip to ensure this doesn't happen is to have a few pairs of slippers y the side of the entrance outside and this will give a strong hint that they are their for incoming guests. It is as simple as that.

Not only will this solve muck being brought it, but it will make your guests feel more at home in house slippers. They can be bought at really cheap prices and in fact here you can buy a guest slipper package containing 4 pairs of slippers for just a fe BG Lev.

Keeping your place clean, improving the homeliness for your guests is surely worth the small investment on your doorstep.

Tips On How To Drink Responsibly

Kranz (Wreath) of Kölsch
Beer is the world most favourite drink, you can buy it anywhere. The advertising networks of beer manufacturers have done a great job in getting a public to buy and drink beer. They make it fashionable and trendy and in the main this is not a big problem, but is can be if taken to excess.

Drinking in minimal quantities is fine as a social habit, but drinking more than is safe is a liability to you and others in social situations. Alcoholism is an illness that lurks around the corner for many. To avoid alcohol addiction it is best to drink in small quantities and knowing when to stop. Here are a few tip on how to drink responsibly.

  • Simply the best way to drink beer responsibly is to drink it at home. Why? Because this will get rid of the danger that is associated with driving or getting into a confrontations.
  • If you have consumed beer simply don't even consider driving. It is not only illegal, but also dangerous. If you need to get somewhere just walk or have someone who hasn't drunk take you.
  • If you have been drinking away from home give your car keys to a friend, a designated driver or telephone someone to pick you up, well worth paying for a taxi rather than risk lives.
  • Don't leave your drink in an unattended in a public place as someone could easily place a substance in your drink. If you get up to dance or go to the toilet order a new glass of beer when you return or take your drink with you.
  • Consider not having a drink at all and opt for non alcoholic drinks. There are thousands of quality drinks that don't contain alcohol, why not give them a go? This of course includes non alcoholic beers.

In the UK an individual must be 18 years of age to purchase and/or legally consume beer. When purchasing alcohol sometimes some form of photo identification is required if the shopkeeper doubts the age of the customer. This can be in the form of a driver’s license or other similar form of identification, which has a photo and birth date of the customer.

Alcoholism is a disease that often requires professional medical care, which is why proper treatment is critical to its cure. So if you know someone who may need help and support you can have a word in their ear about attending a local treatment centre which is free.

Seek Advice From Friends And Online Technology For The Best Deals

PHS Japan 1997-2003 (Willcom, NTT DoCoMo, ASTEL)
It is funny how sometimes you learn things without even having to try. Just by talking to people and listening to their experiences is one of the best ways to learn many things and they don't necessarily have to be older to be wiser. This is exactly what happen to me last week when I called up my niece in the UK.

My niece is a funny girl 20 years younger than me but has a wealth of knowledge well beyond me and many other family members. What is excels in is making end meet financially. I don't' think I know anyone who is as prudent as she is, the man she married is a lucky man with the savings and economies she makes in the home.

I often ask her for advice on how to save on internet bills and other utilities and I know her answers are always going to make sense. This was asked last week and she admitted that she herself took advice from a website when she wanted to know about cell phone plans for a friend. She admitted that even her knowledge on the best deals and plans she could not keep up to date on the best cell phone plans and on top of new offers and products that come along each month. She ended up recommending Sprint which gave the best deal to fit her friend's requirements.

Needless to say the advice she gives is always impartial and she will go away think about things and come back with here considered opinion of what is best - now with the aid of online support it seems and why not?

The tip here really is to make use of online technology to help you make decisions of buying goods and services alongside talking to friends and family who will no doubt have their own opinions on what is best for you.

Teach Children Swimming Young - It's Lifetime Skill

Yen in Swimming lesson
I never learnt to swim until I was 10 years old and will never forget the fear of water I had up until that time. The tip here is to teach your child to swim at the earliest age.

The best start for any child to have infant swimming lessons. Water safety is a very important life skill and is of course a lifelong skill that will never be forgot. It has been fashionable and sensible alongside, which is unusual to bring your baby up with swimming. This is a great idea and the fear of water never enters a child't mind from there on.

You can get a baby swim kit nowadays very easily form many stores and alongside a swim nappy, a towel you are set up. The rule is to take your baby to the water as many times possible and the length of time in the water you will know as the baby will let you know by getting bored.

You can start your baby off from the age of 2 months. Wait at least two hours after he or she has eaten. The swim nappy comes into its own and the packet is easily disposed of afterwards. Young children will automatically hold their breath underwater, which stops water to get into their lungs so you needn't worry about that up until they are about 6 months old.

A good practice is blowing on your child's face hard this will actually stop their breathing prior to a ducking with you preferably. Movement is the water is fun for your baby as long as you follow the comfort zone with your baby. This can be assessed by holding his or her body with both your hands. You will know instinctively what is comfortable and what is not that way. Using floating devices is a good idea as long as the child doesn't become dependent on it.

At the end of the day you shouldn't force your child to do anything that gives undue stress. With the constant access to water your child will develop a skill that many adults nowadays don't have the benefit of and of course a lifesaving skill. In addition they will also have a healthy regime with swimming, a hobby that is way underrated as a form of fitness.

7 Tips On How To Improve Your Photographs

Digital Camera 1
I am a keen photographer, no expert though, but I see many other people's photographs and see where they are going wrong so I have come up with 10 tips on how to improve your photographic skills and all very simple to take on board.

  • Blurry photographs are common, one way to solve this problem is to hold the camera steady when clicking. A simple remedy that many don't use. If you use both hands and relax your blurry images will decrease.
  • Can't see the faces of people when the sun is shining or screwed up faces with the sun shining in people's eye? Simply take the shot with the sun sidewards on or use a flash is the sun is behind them.
  • I've lost count how many time I have seen pictures that show people that are too far away. Get closer or use the close up if you have it on your camera. You dint' need to see the whole of people's body, the face is the main focus on portraits so focus on that and you will improve the interest in the shots.
  • Landscapes are fine, but sometimes a landscape needs a little more interest in it, so include a person within the scene. It will liven up the picture that would otherwise be quite boring.
  • Don't just take picture in good weather, bad weather is far more exciting and give great atmosphere.
  • Don't try and fit everything into the photograph, look for details of a scene and focus on that. In a crown of people, if you look carefully each person or little group will have far more photographic potential than the whole crowd.
  • A little pause before clicking will help you to be absolutely clear about what picture you want to take. Too many clicks are made without any thought about composition. I suppose that the digital camera speaking. If you just imagine you have an old film camera in your hand then you will improve your photography by not wanting to waste film. This is a good trick to help you take thoughtful pictures which will be guaranteed turn out better.
With these simple tips you will be a better photographer and get more enjoyment from the results. You will be deleting less and have more requests from friends for copies of the photographs you have taken making you more popular!

I am a blogger and use Blogger templates to blog with. It was a choice between Blogger and Wordpress when I first started out, I think it was just that I visited the Blogger site that made me choose this format in blogging. There are hundreds of templates designed for both Blogger and Wordpress and the tip is for Wordpress users in this case.

A plethora of templates without login or any hassle.

Looks like Blogger templates are second best looking at the some of the free templates on offer. Perhaps Wordpress over Blogger is a tip I should have taken four years ago.

Chewing Gum - How Yo Get It Out Of Material and Hair

I used to hate chewing gum, seeing someone chew gave a bad impression. However chewing gum is actually a healthy activity and apart from choking on it (mind you you can choke on any food anyway) the only problem is the stuff getting stuck in the most annoying places. Here is a tip on how to get it removed.

To many chewing gum stuck on materials impossible to get off, this is partly right, I will explain. When chewing gum is is warm removing the chewing gum from a rug, carpets or other fabrics is a task too far; you need to harden it up before tackling it. By far the easiest way is to use ice cubes. Simply stroke an ice cube on the gum until it gets hard. enough. If the chewing gum is on a fabric that is small enough, i.e. clothing. You can then put the whole thing in the freezer until the gum has hardened.

It is still hard work to remove the chewing gum but certainly not a task too far. You may lose a few fibres form the item it was stuck to but salvageable with the ice treatment. If you take your time scraping it off you can get away will limited damage, so slow working is advised. You can always used another ice cube or another spell in the freezer if the chewing gum softens with the time spent on task.

If the gum is stuck in your or someone else's hair then the freezing method isn't a good idea. There is an alternative. Use a little cooking oil and rub it into the gum and hair area. Once applied and covered using a comb gently work the gum out by combing. Be gentle otherwise it can be quite painful.

The biggest tip though is to only use chewing gum for chewing and dispose of sensible. With Wrigleys chewing gum I always used to save the foil and wrap it in that before putting it in the bin.

Hire A Car - The Best Option For Holidays And Business Travel

uux 223  BMW  [28-01 edit: 'paper cars are cuter']
Here's a tip if you are in the UK and want to get around at your own convenience. There have been many tests and trials as to what the best form of transport is to get around the UK. The car turned out to be the quickest, most comfortable and least stressful - shame really but that's the verdict

Car hire, or should I say UK car hire is a simple process of paying money to borrow a car and is a great benefit to holiday makers and business people alike. This is the most cost effective way of getting around the UK and of course gives the freedom of going where you want when you want rather than relying of transport timetables and set routes. UK car hire is not only refined to cars, but vans and larger vehicles can be hired as well if there is a group on holiday or business associates.

Finding a UK car hire company is not difficult as there are in excess of 14,000 location worldwide where you can get cheap hire of a car. UK car hire has grown over the last few years and remains the best option for travel if you don't own a car in the UK.

So UK Car Hire has to be the choice and the tip is to take advantage of getting to see the country if you are on holiday and don't be late for that appointment if you are in business.

10 Tips On How To Get Up In The Morning

The worse time of the day has to be when you have just woken up and have to get out of bed. For me the biggest hurdle is trying to drag myself away from my partner who I am normally cuddled up to when I wake up. The are many people who find it difficult to get up in the morning so I though I'd give some tips on how to make it easier.

  • If you are a couple, have to single beds rather than a double bed
  • If the floor is cold, place a rug or a mat that you will stand on by the side of the bed exit
  • Your alarm should play soothing music and have a snooze function
  • Leave the curtains open overnight and you should wake up to natural light in the morning
  • In the winter have a side light switched on in the morning and acclimatise to the light for ten minutes before arising
  • Buy an automatic teasmaid and use it. The sound of trickling tea in the morning is a great sound
  • Don't put your clothes on straight away use a dressing gown, it is so much easier to put on on when you're half asleep
  • Wear pyjamas at night, the cold firs thing in the morning will disappear
  • Think of your partner and make him\her breakfast while they snooze more, take it in turns to do this
  • Go to bed earlier, it is far easier getting up after an extended night of sleep
All these tips will help you get over the worse part of the day and yo never need to be late fro work again. I must admit the hardest tip is to have two single beds, but that's just me being a softie!

Do You Have A Storage Boiler? - There Is A Better Alternative

A great tip on how to save money on heating bills is to consider the type of water heater you have. It has been the standard for many a year for homes to have storage heaters as ready to use hot water at any time seems a good system to have in place. But are storage heaters as efficient as other forms of providing your household with hot water?

Well I used to thing that my storage boiler switched on all the time was efficient. Once the water had reached the required temperature it would just have a trickle of electric keeping the water at that temperature. Of course if I used some hot water it would requite more electric as cold water to top up the boiler needed heating. This to me now is not the way to prudence in providing hot water, especially when it is provided only for two people in the household.

The way forward is for tankless heaters and the environmental benefits of tankless heaters has been proved as it only heat up water you use. What could be more simple? It is the case that I am seriously considering getting rid of my boiler (and it's quite new)and replacing it with a tankless system just like the San Francisco water heater company provide.

This tip is taken on by millions who have inefficient boilers sapping the energy that this earth provides, it would make a major contribution to the world environment. Furthermore what you can expect is an endless supply of piping hot water immediately and of course lower electric bills.

Saving money and and world is exactly what this tip does and what this blog is about!

Eco Friendly When Promoting Your Business Is An Option

This tip is for businesses who want to promote their products or services, but have the option to do it in a eco friendly way. It is with deep interest that I and many other take with products that are eco friendly. Faced with a choice of choosing between a product that is doesn't harm the environment in production and in use against one that does I know where my leaning are going to be. The trouble is in this world that in many case you have to pay extra for eco friendly products and that is something that has to be addressed if this world is to be saved. Whether a business or an individual, a little though behind the promotional product you buy must be made.

The tip here is based upon a good source of business promotional goods many that are focused on being eco friendly products. You have of choice of that cost more or less the same as non eco friendly products. There are not many place where don't have to break the bank to buy something with that feel good factor because ecologically is is a good buy event though is is business oriented, the concern for the environment should still be there.

The online store sells low cost promotional products for your business is one of the most versatile I've seen to date. Amongst the massive array of advertising products you can choose from and being a keen amateur photographer is a cool leather photo frame something that get your business name in the face of customers yet looking dandy on any living room shelf.

Bags as promotional products are also offered what better way of advertising you r business with something that is gong to be mobile seen by hundreds and of course practical for the owner as well. Certainly potential customers will look favourably at any promotional product that is 'green' in essence and view your business more favourably as well.

Look After You Ears And People Won't Shout At You

I hope you can hear me! Well if you can't then you should have taken the tips I am about to give you on how to look after your ears. Sounds good, well it will sound even better once you have read up and put these tips into practice.
  • Many people clean their ears by sticking thing in the ear like cotton bud or hair clips. This is not good for your ears as it could conceivably tear you ear drum
  • Wax that sometimes turn up on the rim or outside the ear can be easily cleaned just with a soft rub with some cotton wool or soft tissue
  • No matter how tempted you may feel, scratching the ear with unclean fingers or other tools should be avoided. It could well lead to infection
  • If you have symptoms of sinusitis, toothache or tonsillitis you should not hesitate to visit your local GP
  • If for some reason you injury your ear, make sure that you seek medical help straight away from a qualified Ear Nose and Throat specialist
  • Do not subject yourself to loud music for extended lengths of time. Earphones are the biggest culprit
  • Contrary to belief pouring hot water or oil inside the ear to flush insects that may have entered your ear is bad. The better alternative in this instance is to have water sprayed lightly inside the ear
  • If you have taken paracetamol to try and cure earache and it hasn't worked it is time to visit your local GP for more professional medical care
With all these tips now on board you should now be more than equipped to deal with ear problems. I know many people who just don't look after their ears in the proper fashion and are riddled with infections year after year. These people will end up being the pensioners who you have to shout at to hear. Don't let this happen to you.

Bifocal Prescription Eyeglasses + Shades For Under $20

Your eyes are important and looking after them must be a priority. Many people need glasses to correct their vision and this can be an expensive business. I myself have worn glasses for over 40 years and up until now it has been an expensive disability with the price of prescription glasses at my optician. However, here's a tip for eyeglass wearers that can save you wads of money, by ordering their prescription glasses online.

It is only recently that I discovered that I had been paying 'over the top' for my prescription eye glasses. I always had in my mind that buying elsewhere would be a risk in terms of quality and professional standing in service and after sales service. Well I have now had my mind un-blinkered as my optician obviously had his business to think about when he insisted that buying his eye glasses in his store where the only safe option. Beside that you felt obliged to buy there after just having an eye test.

No longer as I have found an online site that sell prescription eye glasses giving a far greater range to choose from that my optician and using the latest modern materials. Coming directly from the manufacturer, there is no profiteering from 'middlemen' or unnecessary overheads from retail stores. The #1 online Rx glasses store stops you paying stupid money for brand name eye glasses is just foolhardy when you can get just the same quality from other manufacturers. Okay wearing glasses is a matter of personal fashion, but fashion doesn't have to be expensive. If you think that then you have been conned with commercial tactics that lead you to believe it.t.

Prescription eyeglasses are important for your health and a necessity for most who need them. This is why I am more than pleased to have found this source of eye glasses that provide high quality fashionable products with safety and comfort at mind alongside more than reasonable and affordable prices.

For under $20 I have found a pair of eyeglass (see the picture) that are just up my street being bifocal and come with a clip on shades. All I need is my current prescription and I could be wearing them within the week with a full guarantee included. The same type of glasses in my opticians would be in excess of $120! Now that is a tip to be reckoned with.

For more details you can go and check out Eric's Review of Zenni Optical. If you are an eyeglass wearer it is in your interests financially to fin the Lowest Price Progressive Glasses. Why should eye glass wearers be taken advantage of just because they have to wear eye pieces? This now could well be the end of 'rip off' in your retail stores and excellent news for people like me. A tip well worth taking up next time you need eye glasses.

Good Healthy Teeth Is Basically Down To Education

Photograph of mild fluorosis.
Tips on how to keep health teeth is definitely not being taken up by most people. Looking around me there are so many people with bad teeth it is quite disturbing. There are simple things to can do to ensure your teeth remain in good condition throughout your life. I must put my hand up and admit that at 51 years of age my teeth are in almost perfect condition. Apart from being hit with a cricket ball my teeth are good enough to see me through to my pension if I carry on with the practices I have been a lifetime's habit.

I put people who have bad teeth down to lack of education. So let me start to educate and give a list of the things I do to keep my teeth in tip top condition:

  • Visit your dentist for check ups and cleaning at least once a year (no surprise there)
  • Make sure your vitamin C intake is on pare with the recommended does each day
  • Drink tea whenever you get a choice of a hot drinks
  • Only carbohydrates to three times a day
  • Use a straw to drink cold soft drinks
  • Make sure you have a calcium intake daily (milk or cheese based products)
  • An apple a day not only keeps the doctor away, but the dentist as well
  • Go for whole grain bread every time
  • Finally, brush your teeth, gently for at least 3 minutes after each mealtime (Use an egg timer)
  • Don't smoke
  • If you play contact or ball sports, consider using a gum shield
If you follow these tips you will certainly ensure your teeth will not only last much longer, but will be healthier. The other benefit is of course that and you will have the choice of all foods with good teeth that can manage any type of food.

I am not a dentist or profess to be an expert of teeth and gums, but I draw conclusion form personal experience and consultation the various dentists who made educational visits to the schools I taught in, in the UK.

Martial Arts - Great, But Not All Are Based On Self-Defence

Only the grips below the belt are allowed. The...Image via Wikipedia
Here a tip if you like fighting as a sport and I am certainly one of them. Martial arts, boxing, wrestling Karate, I just love the all action, skills and sometimes the blood. Watching and following these sports contrary to some people's beliefs does not encourage violence outside the sport. It is a controlled environment and at the end of a day a sport that has far more credibility than many other sports which have no aerobic involvement.

There is a lot of following for fighting sports like I say and if you are also one of those who love the tangle of muscle, agility, as well as attacks then it is worth checking out websites that cater for that gender. there is one in particular that stadns out fromt he rest in terms of action packed updated news, info, pictures and links from around the world all about i.e. Mixed Martial Arts. I for one will be bookmarking it to keep up to date on these sports.

A word of warning though, this is not for the young who of course should be discouraged from having access to this kind of violence. Karate or a similar sport is fine, but some of the martial arts go beyond just self-defence and is a genre solely for adults.

Do You Have STP? - Find Out From Home

This is a bit of a sensitive area but a very important area not only for you but others who you have relationships with. Today in this permissive society there are a lot of germs going around, some of these germs are transmitted sexually and this is where today's tip comes into play.

If you at any time feel that there is not something  right  down below, you needn't have to go to your GP or clinic for a check up, there is a simple DIY test that you can take within the comfort of your own home which will confirm one way or the other whether you have indeed have a STP (Sexually transmitted Disease.) It is always better to be in the know so that you can get treatment and not become the transmitter to others. 

Today engaging with new sex partners without getting tested is irresponsible. This happens often though because STD testing has a taboo about it, its embarrassing, takes up time and not least unreliable in many cases. A Home STD Test solves all these problems in one go!

As a matter of routine and care for your partner(s) the tip is to take the test at home. This is more than a matter of consideration, but a matter of health.

Tips For Cycling In Cold And Icy Conditions

Winter road in northern British Columbia.
Cold winter weather is extended this year, but the cycling goes on. It seems to be colder in March than in previous winter months here for some reason. It can be an absolute pleasure riding in icy and snowy conditions, but only if you take precautions. There is no need to use the winter trainer in front of the TV if you read on.

Dress is important, without proper dressing you will become uncomfortable very quickly. You need to dress against the cold wind factor and wet conditions and layering your clothing is the best method. Three layers is best with a wicking material as a base, the second a insulating material and shouldn't be too tight, synthetics, wool, fleece and down all work well. Lastly a wind and water resistant top layer, gore-tex material although expensive works wonderfully well.

Gloves, booties, toe-covers and arm and leg warmers are essential in really cold weather and of course an insulated cap underneath your helmet to keep your head warm.

You need to warm up before you ride and you should spend a little more time with this in the winter even up to 30 minutes in extreme cold. It is important to get the blood flowing before excursion it made.

Feeding is just as anything else important as you will be working harder than normal in the cold to maintain your body heat. This means yo need more food for the energy you will be using up. Up the amount of liquid and food you take on a normal run in the warmer weather. Remember little and often is the most effective method of intake. Just because yo are not thirsty doesn't mean you are not dehydrating.

Don't just think of yourself think of your bike. You bike is going to take on snow, ice, salt and sand. The last thing you need is poor gear change and braking due to corroded cables. I always put in new cables all round just before winter as an insurance. Mudguards although not fashionable do a great job protecting not only you but you bike frame and components, consider it. Get some heavy duty tyres that will outlast winter road conditions.

Safety has to be your main consideration. If the road is snow or ice bound use a mountain rather than a road bike even consider studded tyres studded tires if it is an ice rink! Always ride defensively and fix lights tot he front and rear as sometime daytime can be quite dark.

With all this in place you should still be able to enjoy the outdoor riding. One last tip though. Go out in groups, if someone has a problem there is always someone there to help out. Besides that and it's more fun sharing the experience in extreme weather and talk about it over a beer or two afterwards!

City Walking Tours - Save Money And See More

Top: City of London skyline, Middle: Palace of...
Having spent most of my life in London it is quite amazing how little I know about the City. The saying goes that you don't know what is on your doorstep. It was only when I moved away from the Capital I began to learn more about the place. In fact I knew more about Paris than London whilst living in England biggest City. It is quite strange that my hobby is walking but I chose country locations to do it. I'd never thought of walk in urban areas such as London or Paris. It was always a bus or a taxi to destination in the City.

Well last year I returned to London as a tourist not a resident and found some great walks seeing the sites. I never knew there were so many parks and landscaped areas within the centre of London. Being a keen photographer, what better way to get pictures than to be on foot. Far better than being on a stuffy bus or paying through the nose with taxis. I was lucky though as my stay there was subsidised by staying with family - no Hotel bills to worry about.

My plan this year is to visit Paris and do exactly the same thing namely touring by waling with my camera ready for action - I can't wait. It will be more expensive though as I will need a selection Paris Hotels to stay at. Well at least I don't have to put up with sleeping on the sofa as I did in London and there are quite a few bargain a few Kilometres outside the centre of Paris.

The tip here is to recommend walking in cities, you see and experience things you would never see any other way, it's good for your health and the environment and saves you money. In fact the tip is commensurate to this blogs principles of saving money and the world!

Take A Break At Lunchtime - It Makes Sense To Do So

A header for the "Meals" infobox tem...
If you work all day you know that lunchtimes is a very important time and what you do in that time will determine how the afternoon goes. It was the case where lunchtimes were used to catch up on other things such as shopping or other errands that involve running around or working like a headless chicken before lunchtime ends. How wrong was I in those olden days to do such things and not even have time for a snack. The tip today is to take a break during lunchtime it make total sense. 

Since taking a full hour for lunch, sitting down and eating then for 30 minutes after a cup of tea I slip my hat on to cover my eyes and doze off in the chair or lie down if there is a place to do so doing and doze off. Since doing this daily so my energy levels have increased tenfold for the afternoon of work. My head is clear and thinking straight and the time just whizzes past with my mind focused on the jobs in hand. This is a new lease of life I have discovered since coming to Bulgarian, taking a break is a major find.

Think to yourself, why am I rushing at lunchtimes. There is always other times to do the jobs that you feel you have to do in your time allocated for a break. Some people I know don't take any break at all and work through their lunchtimes, (all for extra money of course) and they look ill. Money is not the most important thing, your health is. not only that these lunchtime workers are less efficient at their work without the mental break and the boost of energy from food and drink needed after a morning of slog.

So whatever your profession, make sure you allocate time during midday for food and rest, it makes so much sense to do so. I won't go into what foods to eat, but something is better than nothing and a ten minutes close of the eyes is better than not rest of the mind.

You boss will thank you for taking a break at lunchtime when they see your work rate rise in the afternoons.
