Simple and Classic Egg Salad


Guest post written by Veronica Caldwell

I was a vegan for a while and lasted three years with it. But after a while I just couldn't stand it anymore, I had to have some egg salad. See, egg salad sandwiches were my favorite for years and was really tempted by them. After i finally cracked and went out and ate some real ice cream, I decided that I was going to make myself some egg salad sandwiches as a kind of "welcome back" treat.

When I became a vegan, I got rid of a bunch of the recipes that included eggs and other things that I swore off. So I had to go onlien to try and find a recipe similar to the one that I used to swear by. When I was online I came across the website and after I read through it a little bit, I decided to sign up for an internet package I found for the service.

Flavored Electronic Cigarettes By Blu


Why do people smoke? There are a lot of reasons, and even though everyone knows it's bad for your health, there are so many people who don't want to quit because it's a comforting habit. I'm a non-smoker, so I'm glad that smoking isn't allowed in most public places, but I understand how people who smoke don't want to have to do without something they enjoy.

Now there's an electric cigarette that for people who can't smoke in public, but they enjoy the feeling of smoking a cigarette after dinner or while having a drink, or for people who are trying to quit, but still enjoy the feeling of holding a cigarette in their hand because it's been a habit for so long. These cigarettes are a great way for people to quit smoking in a healthy way, because it doesn't replace the nicotine and it helps make the transition easier for a lot of people.

"Hot In Cleveland" on TVLand


Posted by Noble Stephens

If you haven't watched "Hot In Cleveland" on TVLand channel, which is on satellite TV from, you don't know what you are missing. Betty White is hilarious as ever.

"Hot In Cleveland" is a comedy about three successful Los Angeles women and an 80 year old woman. The three women from Los Angeles were on their way to Paris, France for a few weeks of vacation. Their plane was having some problems, so it landed in Cleveland, Ohio. The three woman loved it in Cleveland. They decided to stay awhile instead of heading back home or to Paris.

The three women needed a place to stay, but didn't want to stay several weeks in a hotel. They rented a house, but the house came with this 80 year old cleaning lady played by Betty White. The three women, who are in their early 40's, learn a lot from Betty White's character and visa versa. There are many misunderstandings because of the age difference.

"Hot In Cleveland" is a favorite comedy sitcom of mine. It has only been on for one season so far. The second season has just started a few days ago. This is a must see comedy sitcom. You will be laughing throughout the whole show.

Contact a Tell Del ICBC Lawyer Vancouver


It's stressful enough to get in an accident, but having to deal with a bunch of legal hassles can be even worse than the accident itself. If you've been in any kind of accident, including slip and fall injuries, you need to get in touch with an ICBC lawyer Vancouver before you take any other legal action.

It's easy to get pushed around by the legal system when you don't know your rights, and that's why it's so important to talk to an ICBC lawyer. They know how to handle these types of claims and can help you get what you deserve. When you talk to an ICBC lawyer, make sure you give them all the information they need so they'll be able to make a compelling case for your claim.

Affordable Life Insurance For Women


I'm not usually one to try to talk people into doing things they don't want to do, but if you don't think life insurance is important, please reconsider for the sake of your family. Recently, there was a terrible car accident in our area, and the mother and two of the children were killed. Many people think of life insurance as something you buy for the husband, but it's so important to have life insurance for women.

Most of us don't have much money to spare, and funerals cost just as much for women as they do for men. How would most families afford the outrageous cost of a funeral for anyone without insurance. It's sad to say, but this is an expense that we're all going to have to deal with, so it's better to be prepared than to be faced with a ton of bills at the worst time in our lives. We're all on a budget these days, but you don't have to spend a fortune to have a good life insurance policy. Even if you think you can't afford it, please check it out before making a decision.

Joey Houssian of Outdoor Adventures Whistler Speaks to the Media


Joey Houssian of the Outdoor Adventures Whistler company will be speaking to the media about the alleged slaughtering of approximately 100 sled dogs. These dogs were said to have been killed due to a decrease in business and stories have been running rampant through the media. There have been conflicting reports as to how the dogs were actually killed and who is responsible for their deaths. It's easy to see how a story such as this can trigger strong emotions, which is why it's so important to find out what really happened.

I think it's going to be very important for people to take a step back from their initial response of wanting to believe the worst and listen to what the company has to say from their perspective. We can only hope that the animals didn't endure what some reports have stated, and that we can learn how to prevent this type of situation from happening in the future if these animals were needlessly killed. Even if they died a humane death, I think many people are wondering if these animals were ever given the opportunity to be adopted, and I'm willing to hear what Joey Houssian has to say.

Custom Labels and Name Plates for Military Use


As an Army veteran, I didn't think I'd enjoy watching the movie In the Army Now starring Pauly Shore, but I have to admit that it was surprisingly funny. Watching the recruits stumble through basic training reminded me of some of the people in my unit. One particular scene showed Pauly's character trying to shoot the Law Rocket backwards. You'd think it would be self explanatory, but believe it or not, there were several people who would have fired it backwards if someone didn't stop them. This is one reason it's so important to use labels that are designed for military use. It's funny in the movies, but it wouldn't be funny if someone was hurt due to human error.

Labels and name plates should be able to withstand exposure to harsh weather, or they're not going to do any good. In fact, they could do great harm if someone can't read a warning sign or other instructions. We used custom labels for everything in the military, and they're used in the field under extreme weather conditions, so nothing but the best will do when it's a matter of safety. There will always be people who don't read the labels until something goes wrong, but at least they can't say they weren't warned.

What Really Happened to the Whistler Dogs?


If you've been following the story of the Whistler dogs who were allegedly slaughtered in order to reduce business costs, you'll be interested to know that the owner will be speaking out for the first time. He'll be telling his side of the story, and from what I've read, he doesn't deny that the dogs were killed, but he states that his company didn't know how the dogs were killed, and explains that it was his understanding that they were euthanized in a veterinarian's office.

I'm curious to hear more about the dogs and how the company came to the decision to end the lives of these animals. I'm wondering if they were ever put up for adoption before being euthanized or if this was the only consideration for these animals. Some of the reports I've read are extremely graphic, and I'm hoping that they've been exaggerated. I'm sure there's more to the story than we've been told by the media, and I'm interested to hear what the company has to say.

Outdoor Adventures Whistler Owner Speaks Out


The media loves to sensationalize a story, otherwise they usually wouldn't have anything interesting to talk about. When I was serving as a medic in Desert Storm, we would often hear news reports from the media that told an entirely different story than we were witnessing. That experience made me realize that you can't believe everything you see and hear on the news even though they appear to be reporting the facts.

I've recently been hearing a story about a company called Outdoor Adventures Whistler that's being investigated because of dogs that were allegedly slaughtered in order to reduce business costs. I'm an animal lover and would never support a business that would harm animals, but I believe there are two sides to every story, and everyone should have a fair chance to tell their side. The owner of Outdoor Adventures Whistler will be sharing his side of the story with the media, and I'm very curious to hear what he has to say.

Morning Shows and Weather Reports


Guest written by our friend Sergio Chaney

It's time to get up and start moving around. Turn on the TV and watch as another day dawns and the exercise begins with my favorite girl in great shape. We dance together, stretch together and I listen to everything she has to say about how much better I am going to feel in the next half hour of my life. And she is right! I love to start the day off with a good stretch and run in place to music.

Next I need to begin to get ready for work, but the weather is looking pretty grim so I turn to the local weather station and watch for any warnings or delays that could affect my travel time. Good thing too, because the roads are icy today and another storm is moving in fast. In that case I need to leave earlier than usual and take along emergency supplies like extra clothing, medical kit and lots of chocolate candy bars in case I get stranded for a short while.

I am so glad I invest in a good DVR to record programs on direct tv specials, because I am going to miss my favorite morning show, but I can catch it later when I get home and catch up on all the events of the day across the state.

The Beginner's Guide to San Diego


(image) As I sit here trying to thaw out after coming inside from shoveling my driveway, I figured I would get on Facebook and see how my friends and family are doing. My family on the west coast is enjoying a beautiful day, while I'm hiding out in my house because a blizzard is headed our way. I think I've finally had enough of this weather, and it's time to relocate. I've been seriously thinking about moving for awhile now, and I've started looking into the average cost of San Diego apartments for rent. I realize that every area has it's own weather issues, but this cold weather is more than I can take anymore.

Fortunately, I have relatives in the area that I can stay with until my family gets settled, but I don't want to overstay our welcome. It can be a catch-22 situation when it comes to moving. You have to have a job in order to move, but you have to move in order to find a job in that area. Having family that is willing to help out makes the transition so much easier. I've also been talking to people at several San Diego employment agencies to make sure that there's a realistic opportunity to find employment.

I've always dreamed about being able to take my kids to the beach, and I really want them to have the opportunity to enjoy the ocean. We've been searching the internet to learn more about the San Diego Beaches that we'll hopefully be enjoying in the near future. I know it will be a big adjustment to move half way across the country, but I think this will be a change for the better for all of us!

Simple Suggestions For Potty Training Cats


(image) Baby animals are so cute, and kids can't resist them, but it's not so cute when they make a mess in the house, so it's worth taking the time to learn the best techniques for potty training cats before everyone gets so frustrated that they regret getting a cat. Cats can be stubborn and they do what they want when they want, but they will quickly learn to use their litterbox if you follow a few simple rules.

Unlike dogs, cats are generally clean animals, so they usually take to litter training fairly easily. There are simple things that can be done to make potty training a little easier, and it just takes a little effort to help them learn what to do. A couple of suggestions that I read were to keep their litterbox in a secluded area, and have more than one box for them to use.

My kids have been begging for a kitten, and they promised to take care of it. I've heard this story before, and now I'm the one doing all of the work for our two dogs. Well, someone must be looking out for my kids, because we've inherited a stray cat that decided to live at our house. It must be meant to be, because my dogs love this cat, and they usually hate cats!

When she first started coming around our house, she was skinny and had the tip of one of her ears ripped off. She was so sweet and friendly, so how do you say no to that! We started leaving food and water for her under our carport, and she gradually made her way into our house as an indoor-outdoor cat. My only requirement for having another pet in the house is that my girls help take care of her, because I'm not doing all of the work by myself this time!

Stay Warm in Style This Winter With The North Face


My girls love to play in the snow, and I don't want them to have to come inside and warm up every few minutes because their hands are wet and freezing. We're going to be prepared this winter. I found a pair of pretty North Face kids gloves that are waterproof and will keep their hands warm and dry. They're a pretty pink color, so my girls will actually wear them!

For myself, I found a pair of North Face winter shoes. The style is called snow betty, and they're really cute. I like to be stylish while I'm staying warm! I haven't ordered them yet, but from what I've read in the reviews, you might want to order them in one size larger than your normal size. These shoes are exactly what I've been looking for, because I don't understand why so many boots are made with slippery soles. These boots provide better traction on slick surfaces.

My oldest daughter is more concerned with looking cool than staying warm, so I found a fleece vest that we both like. I must admit that I don't quite understand the concept of a winter vest, but they're extremely popular, so they must be doing something right! My philosophy is that if it's cold enough to wear a thick vest, than your arms are going to get cold, but she insists she's fine as long as she's wearing long sleeves. I had my own favorite styles as a teenager, so I guess this is one of those battles that isn't worth fighting! Plus, it does look cute!

So You Think You Can Dance Is My Favorite Reality TV Show


Authored by Oswaldo Blackburn

My favorite reality TV show is So You Think You Can Dance; this show allows viewers to watch professional dancing. Each year the show begins with try outs in several different cities. The dancers are given one minute to show three judges, all professional dancers themselves, what their skill level is. The dancing is very diverse and includes contemporary, ballroom, tap, hip hop, jazz, and even ballet. Those that convince the judges of their ability are given a ticket to Las Vegas.

Las Vegas is where the choreographers give the dancers difficult routines to master including styles that are not the dancer's specialty. The judges are then able to narrow the group down. They usually keep 20 dancers and pair the men with the women. Last season they narrowed down to 10 and brought back previous dancers who they considered to be all stars.

Once the dancers have been paired, each week the pairs randomly draw dance styles to perform and the audience votes for their favorites. The styles vary from ballroom to hip hop; the dancers are amazing and often master these difficult styles. I try not to have a favorite dancer; they always seem to get voted off.

I watch So You Think You Can Dan on DirecTV TV, that way I can DVR the show and I never miss an episode.

Save Money With Affordable Roaming Charges


Roaming charges can be so expensive with some companies that it makes it almost impossible to afford to use a cell phone. I've always had coverage with a major carrier, and I thought I was getting a good deal. They would compare their rates with other companies to show how their prices are competitive. The one thing they forgot to do was inform me that there are other providers that aren't as well known, but they offer much better rates. I guess it just slipped their minds!

Money is tight for most people, so why spend money that you don't have to when there's a better alternative. With Roam Mobility, you can save up to 90% on roaming charges. For me, the best part is that they offer pay-as-you-go plans with no contracts. This is exactly what I need, because there have been a few months when paying the cell phone bill was a little more than I could manage. With more affordable roaming charges, I'll actually be able to let my kids use the cell phone without dreading the phone bill.

Satellite TV is My Necessary Luxury


(image) I've recently been trying to find ways to cut back on my monthly expenses, and for a moment, I debated whether or not I really need Direct TV. I decided that since we don't pay very much each month for our satellite TV, I don't want to lose something that I really enjoy just to save a few bucks.

I had considered subscribing to one of those movie services that let you rent a certain number of movies every month and doing without satellite service, but then I realized that it wouldn't be as fun as flipping through the channels at night the way I do with my LocalTV-Satellite. That's my relaxation time at night when the kids have gone to bed, and my husband is playing on his computer. It's funny how I can have a shelf full of movies, and I don't watch them very often, but when they happen to be on TV, I'm excited that they're on! We also like to check the news channels to see what's going on, and you can't do that when all you have are movies.

I try not to waste a lot of money on things I don't need (the key word being try), but now I realize that having something that helps me unwind after a long day or something that gives me the opportunity to enjoy a movie or show with my kids is definitely not a waste of money. Especially when you can go to and get a great deal. Some people might think that watching TV is time that could be better spent doing something constructive, but as far as I'm concerned, spending time with family and friends while watching a good program is an excellent way to spend some time!

Pardon Services Makes it Possible to Travel the World


Most of us have something from our past that we'd like to keep in the past, but if you have a criminal conviction, that's not always possible. If you're a Canadian citizen trying to travel to the U.S., but you haven't been able to because of your record, Pardon Services may be able to help you. Depending on the crime, there are waiting periods between 3 to 10 years. A pardon allows people to travel and work in foreign countries, and records will be sealed from federal authorities and police.

Pardon services has been helping people since 1994, so you can be confident that they have the necessary experience to get the job done. Lucy Perrillo is the founder of this organization, and she has a law enforcement degree, so she understands the workings of the system. It all started when a friend came to her for help, and she's been helping people receive Canadian pardons and U.S. waivers ever since that time. The United States doesn't recognize Canadian pardons, which is why a waiver may be required when traveling.

Photo Restoration Keeps Memories Alive


Photographs capture a moment in time. They offer a glimpse of far away places, and they allow us to see images of people we've heard about but never met. I live far from my parents, but thanks to the invention of photography, they were able to see pictures of their first grandchild right away. Pictures let you feel like you were there, and that makes it a little easier to be away from home. Family is very important to me, so we've used photo restoration to restore some old pictures of my husband's family.

We found pictures that we never knew existed until his mother started going through old boxes. Some of these pictures were too far gone, but many of them could be restored, and now my children can see the faces of their ancestors. It means a lot to me to have these pictures, because it lets my kids see that these were real people and not just names from the past. Now that we've had some of these pictures restored, we're going to have them mounted so we can hang them on the wall. I can only hope that some day, my great-great grandchildren will enjoy seeing pictures of me!

Cotton Medical Scrubs For Men and Women


(image) Cotton medical scrubs are so comfortable that some people are wearing them as regular clothing. It's a popular style for the kids to wear wear the scrub tops with jeans. I have to admit that it does look cute. Who knew that a work uniform would become a popular style!

When you need to buy medical uniforms for work, you don't need to spend your entire paycheck. You can find nice uniforms in different colors that aren't expensive. You can even order custom uniforms if you want them to fit a certain way.

Nursing scrub pants and tops have come a long way since I used to have to wear the them. When you spend a lot of time at work, it makes it nice to have clothes that make you feel confident, and scrubs that fit well can make a big difference in how you feel at work.

A Beautiful Soul



Most Beautiful Woman In The World

She has no special talent
No special beauty mark
No invention with a patent
No voice of a comely lark

No hourglass physique
No sunbeam likened smile
No lingering mystique
No manicured nails to file

But what she had she flaunted
With the style of a fur-lined stole
With the chic of a runway model
She flashed her beautiful soul

Natural Treats to Clean Dog Teeth


Anyone who know me knows that my dogs are spoiled. They're mainly indoor dogs who sleep on the couch (and my bed when my husband isn't looking), and they pretty much get what they want. I want them to live for a long time, so I feed them natural food and give them dog dental chews to keep their teeth clean. Bad teeth don't just cause bad breath, but they can lead to additional health problems. I don't want my dogs to have to go through any unnecessary surgery to have their teeth cleaned, so I try to avoid that by giving them Nylabone treats that reduce tartar.

Nylabone Nubz are made from real chicken, and they're gluten free. Dogs can have food sensitivities, and gluten can irritate dogs' stomachs that same way it does people's stomachs. If you're a Costco shopper, you can use the coupon in the monthly book to get a bag of these treats for $3.50 from August 19th – September 12th. These treats are highly digestible, which makes me feel good about giving them to my dogs, because they've been known to swallow food without chewing, and I worry about things getting stuck in their stomach.

Larger dog treats can be broken to make smaller treats if you don't want them to have the entire treat at one time. Animals depend on us to take care of them, and I want to do the best I can to help my dogs have a good life. Every time I see that commercial with the animals in the shelter and you hear "In the Arms of the Angels" by Sarah McLachlan, it makes me want to take all of those animals home with me. I know I can't do that, because I already have two dogs, so it wouldn't be good for me or the dogs, but I can do everything possible to make sure that my own dogs are well taken care of. For me, this starts with the little things like keeping their teeth clean and healthy.

It Pays to Be a Loyal Customer!


(image) People will usually take the time to file a complaint, but how often do we go out of our way to pay a compliment? Well, I'm enjoying one of the promotional deals from Direct tv, so I want to take the time to express my appreciation. We've had Direct TV for over 9 years, and have received excellent customer service and picture quality. They've always offered us the best deal to meet or beat their competitors prices. There are so many channels to choose from with DIRECTV by DirectSatTV, that you can find something for everyone to enjoy. Now, not only can you choose what you want to watch, many channels are available in High Definition. Direct TV offers the most channels in High Definition. Find out how new customers can get free HD for life!

There are always great direct satellite tv offers, and there are packages to suit everyone's needs. They offer 6 packages including the Family package with 45+ channels, the Premier package with 265+ channels, and packages in between that allow you to find exactly what your looking for without having to pay for channels that you don't need. If you're looking for a company you can depend on to answer your questions and offer you the best deal, you won't be disappointed with Direct TV. They value their customers, and continue to offer us promotional discounts and offers for being a loyal customer.

By now, you've probably already learned that you have to switch to digital transition, but if you want to learn more about how dtv transition will benefit you, there are plenty of websites dedicated to providing information on the transition. All full-power television stations have stopped broadcasting in analog, so if you watch TV at all, you've already had to switch, but it's nice to know what this change means to us. If you have satellite television, you should already be receiving digital signals. If not, you’ll need a box that includes a digital broadcast tuner. The show must go on!

Stairway to Heaven



They say memories are golden,
Well, maybe that is true;
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried;
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still;
In my heart you hold a piece
No one could ever fill.

But now I know you want me
To mourn for you no more,
To remember the happy times
Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten
I pledge to you today;
A hallowed place within my heart
Is where you'll always stay.

If tears could build a stairway
And heartache make a lane;
I'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Travel Incentives Give Your Business a Boost


With all things being equal, would travel incentives help tip the scales in deciding which company you do business with? It certainly would for me! The business world is competitive, and incentives such as hotel stays, car rentals, entertainment passes, and airfare can increase new sales as well as increase repeat customers and clients. Who wouldn't want to choose the company that offers additional benefits? Businesses are able to provide these incentives because they work with companies that have direct partnerships with major companies that offer incentives at reasonable rates to businesses both large and small.

Travel incentives benefit everyone, so if you're a business owner or marketing director, learn more about possible incentives and how they work to increase your sales.
