In days of old it was fashionable to be seen with a cigarette. All you have to do is look at the movies from the 1920s to the mid-80s, to see how smoking has affected the rest of the world. Celebrities make it look grand and look glamorous. Back in the day, not only was it fashionable, but was also considered a safe habit. We know different today.
Fortunately today it is glaringly obvious how dangerous smoking and second-hand smoke really is. Not only does it cause a myriad of different kinds of cancers, but it is an exceptionally physically aging habit as well. It doesn’t do much for halitosis or body odour either. The problem is that it is one of the hardest habits to kick, is right up the with heroin addiction. What makes smoking dangerous, is that it physically changes the chemical receptors in the brain, making you physically dependent on it. But there is a way to at least smoke healthier.
Electronic cigarettes are not new on the South African market. It’s been around for quite a number of years now, and is growing in popularity. More so because smoking in public is becoming more and more difficult because the law forbids restaurants, bars and other public facilities from allowing smoking indoors.

The following is for the rest of you who have finally learned how to use it to gain confidence, learn to chat a woman, what you say and how to get a first date.

(Encyclopedia of Human Relationships) Here are a few ideas or tips on how to avoid making first date mistakes which can ruin any chance of a second date or more.
First of all, being too agreeable or constantly saying “me too” to everything she has to say, and then using her stories as a launch pad for you to jump in and tell her your similar story and constantly interrupting her, can make it sound like you’re not really interested in what she is has to say instead of you sincerely being thrilled that you have a lot in common with her. If you find yourself doing this a lot, you can salvage the date by simply keeping your mouth shut and listening to what she has to say. This does not mean you need to say very little or even nothing at all, it just means done interrupter when she is speaking, and if you do have something to say, your similar story, ask her questions about her story to show your interest instead.

The thing about most weight loss programs, is that there are not sustainable over long-term periods. A whole host of issues with these kinds of weight loss programs stems from this one factor. It also the main reason why most people wind up cheating on their diets, or simply quit before completing the program. Weight loss is difficult enough without adding all of this to the mix as well.
This is where the cruise control diet is different from other programs. Not only is it easily sustainable over long periods of time, it does not have set in stone rules that most diets have. For instance, the cruise control diet does not ask that you restock your food cupboards with entirely new foods, there is no need for counting calories or weighing your food before you can eat it, and it does not take up huge chunks of the time of your day when it comes to prep time or cooking. This diet also takes into consideration the fact that you are in fact human, and therefore does not starve you of certain foods or restrict you from eating certain things. Instead, it actually encourages you to indulge in your cravings now under gain in order to keep the mostly at bay.
While these points are fantastic and blasts most other weight loss programs out of the water, it’s the last point that makes this diet so different from others. Because it does not force you to exclude certain food groups entirely from your diet, neither does it dictate your food portions, you suffer less food cravings as a result, nor will you never starve or feel hungry.

So we’ve all heard about these scenarios of what life would be like in the future from the TV. Think future where electricity is more valuable than water or gold. Sounds stupid? Even crazy? Not really actually. It’s a very possible future if you consider what we paying for electricity and power today already. Go about preventing such a feat from happening? Actually, it’s very easy. The answer is quite simply renewable energy.
So what the heck is renewable energy you, want to know. Well, let’s go back in time a little bit first. Several years ago Summit came up with this ingenious idea of an electric car. Yes, yes I know. Electricity again, but wait I’m not done yet. The electric car meant no more burning of fossil fuels, the use of oil, coal, petroleum, diesel or any of these flammable and poisonous fluids and substances that make our cars go. Celebrities are the first to get their hands on these vehicles and they loved them! The problem was the big oil companies and car companies didn’t love them because that meant they were taking a massive hit. So the electric cars were pulled off the market and we were left with our conventional oil burning, petrol guzzling automobiles instead. The Hydro cars. These were great because they ran on water and required nor will or petrol and gave of no emissions. Same story as the electric cars, they were pulled. The Hydro cars and the electric car to perfect examples of what renewable energy can do for our world and our lives, if our governments were just allow us to have them. So what the heck can we do about, you want to know.
This is where an ingenious little bookcase comes into play. It’s called earth4energy and was written by an engineer who spent most of his life working in the industry and decided that he did not want to pay the prices for power to run his home and thought that neither should everybody else. So he wrote a book describing how you can build a couple of devices for a couple thousand dollars US, or a few thousand Rand, if you really want to save big bucks. You need any technical know-how or even had taken science in school to be able to do this, all you need is the world to save money. And if is not too much of a stretch, help save the planet to. He has created an awesome little package that includes an e-book which is fully illustrated, with comprehensive step-by-step instructions, video tutorials of the same for those who prefer watching instead of reading, explaining in explicit detail exactly what to do and when to do it in order to build your own free renewable energy.

The unfortunate truth is that a large number of them are either useless or a little bit dangerous.

The problem is that anybody can easily get their hands on these dangerous diets in an effort to emulate the body images they see portrayed in the media, and it’s not just women who fall prey to this parody of beauty.

There must be something said about this country, South Africa, because everybody wants to visit it and experience its diversity. Foreigners flock to South Africa in droves all year long, not just during the summer months. No they really must be something about this country pulls people to it like a moth to the flame. Take me for instance, I’ve lived here for 37 years and have never left. I keep talking about visiting the rest of the world and seeing all these beautiful and exotic places, when my own country as were some of the most exotic places on earth! And I’ve you to see those! So I can understand why the recent the world is coming here.
South Africa holidays are extremely popular and rank right up there with places like Thailand and Mauritius. We have such a richness of different cultures, so many different kinds of people with their own strange ways that seem exotic, even to a born and bred South African. The beauty of this country that we have things like one of the biggest reasons in the world, the Namib Desert, which stretches for over 2000 km along the Atlantic coast of Angola, Namibian and South Africa. It extends all the way from the Carunjamba River in Angola, through Namibia to the Olifants River in the Western Cape, which is in South Africa.

http://www.cinnamonhouse.co.za : If you are lucky enough to live in South Africa, or more specifically in Cape Town, then you will know about a place called the Garden Route. And if you know anything about the garden route, you also know that a place called Wilderness. Wilderness is a plus or minus (depending on how many times you stop) a six hour drive from Cape Town, but man, it is so worth the drive! On the drive up the coast from Cape Town you drive through these tiny little towns with these funny little names that will have you giggling all the way to your destination.
Now once you get to Wilderness, you will be needing to look for some accommodation. My personal recommendation would be to look for a Wilderness hotel or even a guest house. I’ve been to Wilderness a couple times already, and I have my favourites, or should I say favourite, and in this post I will share it with you. Hopefully this will actually inspire you to visit an experienced this place for yourself.
This particular hotel was classed as a regular guest house. Actually no, a boutique guest house to be more precise. It has a four-star rating with a cleaning service that invisible and extremely efficient. But what strikes me the most about this particular place is how secluded it feels even though you’re only a few metres away from the main road. This is got to be one of the prettiest places I visited in a very, very long time. This something about this particular place that draws me to it all the time. It might be the fact that no matter which window you look out of all you see is rolling green hills, lash, thick dark green foliage and some of the prettiest flowers you’ve ever seen. Then of course there are the little birds that visit the garden. They have had these little bottles of red coloured syrup water for these birds in all the trees and created little perches and feeding stations in the trees for them, and the birds come in droves. They look like kingfishers but are not. They are called sunbirds and the males are brightly coloured with iridescent black and green feathers on the wings, bright red chests with a lot of blue and a lot of black, it is amazing. And of course as with everything in nature, where the males are bright, the females are dull coloured. It really is an amazing sight. What makes this so pretty and so amazing, is the fact that these birds will land on these little feeders all throughout the day and they are scattered in between tables and chairs we have breakfast, which makes breakfast entertaining at the same time.

It is thought that type 2 diabetes is mostly caused by the modern westernised diet which is responsible for the large increase in the levels of obesity. Being obese is the major factor in why adults and children develop diabetes type2. In this type of diabetes the cells that produce insulin are no longer able to produce it and this causes the increases of glucose and blood sugar to be raised. It is possible that research is showing that by eliminating the excessive fat inside the muscle cells and in the liver that you can successfully reverse your diabetes today.
The main reason why adults stop producing insulin in type 2 diabetes is because of the build-up of abnormal fat. However whilst It is seen more commonly in obese people it is a problem for people who have normal weight. People who are considered to be a healthy weight can also accumulate an excess of fat in the liver and muscle cells. Continue reading
