    We are very social, and living in a place that has nice neighbors was a must. This was high on our criteria when we were out looking for apartments for rent in Nashville TN. I like an on site gym too. My wife likes a big swimming pool. I swim occasionally, but she swims practically every day. The apartments we were looking at also had a coffee and tea bar. This is helpful in socializing with new neighbors. The granite countertops and hardwood or stained concrete floors were also a very nice option to consider.

    Another key selling point was having maintenance at the apartment complex. No more calling a maintenance service company to do any needed work. The washer and dryer, big garden tub, stainless steel appliances and more were all big sellers to the both of us. We could hardly wait to sign the lease. Read the rest of this entry »

    Tequila’, the term itself makes us feel high! For those who have not tasted this intoxicating drink yet, have the desire to do so always. We often hear people taking tequila shot when they are at a pub, disc or night club, even at a party. Doesn’t it feel awesome while you take the shot with a pinch of salt rolling inside your mouth? But how many of us actually know about its history, flavors or types? There are very few people who would be able to tell you all about it. For instance, did you know that to make tequila you need to first start with blue agave plant which in fact takes nearly ten years to mature completely? Well, there are many other facts which most of us do not know.
    Tequila is only produced in Mexico and in the area of tequila. The drink can be produced only if the norms for tequila placed by the Mexican Government are followed. The drink was once a man’s thing. Earlier only a man would be making it. The women were not fond of it. The drink was sold only in the regions of Mexico. But by the 1990s it had spread in other parts of the US. Mentioned below are the types of the drink. Let’s check them out –
    1.Oro – Oro or gold is a well renowned type of this drink. Gold tequila gets its color after maturing in the oak barrel, if that is 100% agave. The color of gold can also be brought if flavors like caramel are added. This tequila type is mostly used in making margaritas.
    2.Blanco – Blanco or silver is another kind of popular tequila drink. This is a drink which is not matured. It’s a kind of tequila which is fresh, clear and traditional. It is also known as white tequila. The flavor is strong and the drink is gulped down from a shot glass called caballito.
    3.Reserva – This is one of the most popular tequilas available in the market. Reserva is popular amongst people because of its smooth taste. Yet, this drink is also one of the most expensive that is available.
    4.Reposado – This is a type of Blanco Tequila which has been in white oak barrels up to at least a year. It comes in a pale color and is smooth in taste.

    Eliminating excessive fat is a person’s commitment of making simple lifestyle changes. A key reason why decreasing excess weight tends to be difficult is an individual is not willing to omit or else reduce intake of certain foods or liquids. Utilizing a healthy weight loss diet program people learn ways to make simple eating habit changes so that favorite snacks and drinks are never missed.

    Sugar filled soda tends to be one main reason for excess pounds. Sugary soda is loaded with monosaccharide carbohydrates for example refined sugar. A human body processes monosaccharide carbs immediately. Meaning that whenever sugary soda is ingested to curb desires for food people will still have hunger pangs relatively soon after drinking pop and seek out additional items to drink or eat.

    Furthermore, sugar loaded soda furnishes zero nutriments. The body will remain desiring food until it gets proper quantities of healthy nutrients. A human body needs sufficient amounts of nutrition to run correctly. As a result, an individual will have to eat or drink more calories either from food items or drinks in order to acquire needed nutrition.

    An excellent substitute for sugar loaded pop is filtered water. Water will satisfy hunger. In addition, water provides absolutely no calorie count. Sometimes people like adding slices of lime or lemon to flavor water. So, consume filtered water in place of sugary soda to lose weight.

    Turning to water, the majority of dieters do not realize marginal deprivation of water could result in medical health conditions. A healthy fat loss plan recommends consuming eight 8-ounce glasses of filtered water each day. Constant dehydration happens to be known to cause a number of health effects including weight gain, skin conditions, back pain and poor energy. Additionally, deprivation of water happens to be connected with a number of chronic medical conditions such as allergies, peptic ulcers, osteoarthritis, kidney stones and asthma. Without doubt, consuming filtered water will be important in reducing excess pounds in addition to stopping numerous health problems.

    One more simple eating habit change is picking out more nutritious snacks. The bulk of people grab potato chips, cookies and pretzels for snack foods. While tasty, these foods are full of monosaccharide carbs and fully hydrogenated oil that promote extra weight. Plus, all these items furnish little or no nutriments. An effective weight loss diet program consists of eating less low nutrition treats and more nutritious snacks for example vegetables, fruits and raw seeds.

    Losing pounds requires determination plus minor lifestyle changes. Switching from sugar filled cola over to pure water as well as unhealthy treats over to healthy snacks will be incredibly simple. An effective weight loss diet program educates people how to implement minor lifestyle changes so that desired snack foods as well as drinks are not missed.

    Some of the herbal ingredients that these energy and sports drink contain are:

    XS

    Guarana

    Siberian Ginseng

    Green Tea

    Echinacea

    Ginkgo Biloba

    Kava Sutra

    Niagara

    Guru

    What do they do to your body?

    Some of these drinks claim to boost our intelligence, our immune system, energize us, increase our potency and make us more reflective.

    There are drinks that are thought to have antidepressant and aphrodisiac qualities. Others are designed to improve mood and ability to concentrate.

    Beverages such as XS an Gatorade and Powerade have been on the market for years now and are known by athletes to replenish electrolytes during vigorous exercise or playing sports. Others are fairly new and contain herbs and ingredients that have not been researched.

    Rosie Schwartz, a nutritionist, author and columnist warns that the new energy and smart drinks are the snake oil of the 21st century. If these drinks contain a therapeutic dose of an herbal ingredient, what can one dose do? How much of these drinks do you need before you see some beneficial effect? Can some of these ingredients interact with medications that a person may be taking or cause an allergic reaction? Some of the ingredients in these drinks have warnings on their labels that indicate persons sensitive to caffeine or individuals with high blood pressure should not drink them.

    The bottom line is it is not known whether these so called energy drinks have a proven track record for doing what they say they will do.

    It is recommended that you read the label and do a bit of research before you buy an energy drink.

    I am always ask what energy drink do I like and way.

    I recommend the XS energy drink because of the Ingredients, 0 SUGER,0 CARBS,4900% B12,300% B6,100% B5,100% B3. And because my 8 year old son loves it.

    travel tips

    Lanzarote is my all time favourite place. Not only just my favourite holiday destination but my favourite place on earth bar none. The climate is just right and the island has a mystique that surrounds its preserved natural beauty. Its a place that draws me back time after time.

    When your flight starts to descend over Lanzarote, the first thing you will notice (usually out of the left hand window of the plane) is the volcanic landscape. The view of crater, after crafter is truly amazing and the colours of the mineral rich landscape set off against the blue of the sky and the sea are a real sight to behold. You will also notice how sparse Lanzarote appears from the air. Its only a small island and yet is not overrun with high rise developments. It really has the mix of tourism and nature spot on.

    When the Plane touches down and you make your way out of the airport the landscape may appear quite literally, bone dry. Lanzarote doesn’t get much rain (it is off the coast of the Sahara Desert). The landscape on Lanzarote has been likened to that on the moon and whilst this might not be for everyone it certainly has its hold on me.

    There are three main tourist resorts on Lanzarote. Puerto del Carmen (the largest and just minutes from the airport), Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise. Each resort has its own appeal to different age groups but the one thing they all share is great food. When it comes to dining out Lanzarote sets the standards. Go into any restaurant that lines the sea front of the resorts (and they are a few) and you will, more often than not, be presented with a wide selection of outstanding dishes. And the portions don’t come small! The price you pay for eating out in Lanzarote does vary. You can basically pay as little or as much as you want, but the average price usually gets you a really nice meal. A couple can easy have a nice meal for around 50 including starter, main, desert and drinks.

    Finally, the music. I don’t know what it is about Lanzarote but the live music on offer tends to be so much better than anywhere else I have been. It really seems to blend in with the island and provides a great nights entertainment. Not only that but the musicians tend to be accessible so it easy to get to know them if you are a regular visitor to the island.

    All in all, Lanzarote is the perfect place. The climate, the nature and the tourism all seem to sit together so well. Its not over commercialised and there is a real sense that whilst Tourism is very important to the island that it will not be forced into destroying the identity that has created the island we have come to know and love.

    Staying in hotels has become a regular part of our lives, therefore it is important to make sure that we know and follow the rules of hotel safety.
    Maximize fire safety and security by selecting a room located between the 4 and 6th floor Avoid rooms above the sixth floor–the maximum height that fire-department ladders can reach

    When possible do not except a hotel on the ground floor that has doors and windows that open to the outside.

    For security in motels, avoid ground floor rooms off the parking lot. If you can’t get a room on a higher level, take one facing the inside courtyard.

    Look for information in room about fire safety and read to become familiar with nearest fire exit / stairway and locate nearest fire exit.

    When you enter your hotel room, make sure the door closes securely and that the deadbolt works. Keep the deadbolt and safety bar on at all time.

    Select a hotel with modern electronic guest room locks, as these locks automatically change the lock combination with every new guest so there is little chance of a duplicate key to your room.

    There should be fire sprinklers in hotel rooms, hallways, and meeting rooms likewise for smoke detectors.

    Each room telephone should allow outside dialing.

    Guest phones located in hallways and lobbies should not allow direct room dialing, so anyone using the phone should have to call the operator and request a room by guest name, not room number.

    There should be secure locks on windows and adjoining doors.

    The hotel should have well-lit interior hallways, parking structures and grounds.

    The parking garage should not have elevators taking passengers to guest floors. It should only go to the lobby.

    Don’t answer the door in a hotel or motel room without verifying who it is. If a person claims to be an employee, call the front desk and ask if someone from their staff is supposed to have access to your room and for what purpose.

    Keep your room key with you at all times and don’t needlessly display it in public. Should you misplace it, please notify the front desk immediately
    Close the door securely whenever you are in your room and use all of the locking devices provided.
    Check to see that any sliding glass doors or windows and any connecting room doors are locked
    Dont invite strangers to your room – ever.
    Do not draw attention to yourself by displaying large amounts of cash or expensive jewelry.
    Place all valuables in the hotel or motel’s safe deposit box, always.
    When returning to your hotel or motel late in the evening, be aware of your surroundings, never be alone, stay in well-lighted areas, and use the main entrance.
    Take a few moments and locate the nearest exit that may be used in the event of an emergency.
    If you see any suspicious activity, notify the hotel operator or a staff member. Remember it is always “better to safe than sorry”

    What is raspberry leaf tea?

    Raspberry leaf tea is a tisane or infusion made by soaking raspberry leaves in hot water. There are several species of raspberries, but red raspberries are preferred for teas. The red raspberries, which are native in Europe and Northern Asia, contain more vitamins and minerals compared to other raspberry species.

    Preparing raspberry leaf tea

    Dried young shoots or leaves are used for raspberry leaf tea. Then, it is soaked or steep in freshly boiled water for 5 to 10 minutes. It has an astringent, black tea flavor with surprisingly no hint of raspberry taste. One to two teaspoons are needed to make a cup of raspberry leaf tea.

    Benefits of raspberry leaf tea

    Historically, raspberry leaf tea is used to aid delivery among pregnant mothers who are about to give birth. (see ).Today, raspberry leaf tea is used to promote health. It has the flavor of black tea, without containing caffeine.

    Raspberry tea is rich in vitamins and minerals, and is also especially rich in antioxidants. Studies show that raspberry has huge oxygen radical absorbance capacity (value that measures how much damaging oxygen radicals it can remove from cells). People who are stressed and convalescing from sickness are recommended to drink raspberry tea to aid recovery.

    Red raspberry leaves are especially rich in folate which is essential for proper mental function, prevention of anemia and reproduction.
    Raspberry fruits and leaves are also found to contain various phenolic compounds, anthocyanins and flavonoids that can protect the body from cancer and oxidative stress.

    Raspberry leaf tea is a good astringent and mouth cleanser. It is a good remedy for sore throats, gingivitis and cankers in the mouth.

    Although historically recommended to pregnant mothers, modern studies failed to support its proposed benefits. Studies supporting the efficacy of raspberry leaf tea to improve uterine tone and reduce necessity for cesarean section births have poor methodology with unconvincing results. It might also pose harm to pregnancy if taken during the first trimester. But still, people with caffeine sensitivity will find raspberry leaf tea a great alternative to black tea.
