Successful journey of over 2k Miles – #ManitouIncline – Manitou Springs Colorado

June 17, 2015 my friend and I decided to hike at Manitou Incline Colorado which has over 2k steps. We went there like almost 10am. When we reached we were having a hard time finding a parking lot. We had to turn twice in that area just to wait for a vacant pay parking. When we had our turned, we were one of the happy hikers. We started hiking at around 11:30am and we finished around 3:30pm going the back home.

It was like a torture for us coz we were first timer. There were stairs wherein we have to almost crawl in going up just to reach the top of the trail. First timers in hiking trail like this would be having a hard time and lots of muscle spasms afterwards. But for the regular hikers, it would be easy for them. There was even one man, maybe he was trying to lose weight as he was running back and forth on the trail and it’s just easy for him.

Given the chance, I will hike in this Manitou Incline again but I have to be early like before 6am so that I can find a good parking area and I need to finish early. But I don’t want to go down at the back portion as it was too long in there. If I will have to get down from there, I need to run fast so as to reach the bottom of the mountain quick. With my 2nd hike there, I think I will try to go down on the stairs again. Though it’s a bit steep but I know I can as I am used to walking and hiking the mountains when I was younger. And that would be easy for me.

To sum up, I loved the hike as it is like I am connecting with God’s nature which is away from all of the high technology of the modern world. It was just refreshing! Thanks God it was a successful journey of over 2k miles.

 Thanks God, we are able to find a parking space after turning around the 2nd time.

Locating the Perfect Business Storefront

Although many businesses prefer the virtual stage of the Internet, other companies still need concrete visibility within a storefront. Whether you offer retail sales or other services, locating the perfect storefront can be a challenge even in the largest cities. As a business owner, you must consider several factors influencing this location choice to ensure a high return on your leasing investment.

Complement Immediate Business Neighbors

If you sell furniture, you don’t want to locate the business in a computer-repair section of town. A major part of locating the right storefront area is complementing local businesses. Construction supply companies are perfectly located near a heavy machinery rental yard, for example. With this concept in mind, you benefit your business and other companies nearby. Enhancing the local economy is part of good business practices that pay off for everyone in the immediate area.

Street Visibility

It’s simple to click here on a website page and gain visibility, but storefronts require much more thought before you move in. Get familiar with the town or city for your business. Understand where all the main streets and traffic reside. You want your business to be located with like-minded companies, but on a busy road for visibility. Even with excellent word-of-mouth and stellar service, your business can topple without a face on a main street.

Hiring Leasing Professionals

Make the building search much easier by hiring leasing professionals. These real estate experts understand the local economy and land divisions. After an interview with you and other management, they can piece together several smart leasing deals that work for your particular industry. Working with real estate professionals takes some of the legwork out of finding that perfect location and streamlines a rapid move-in process.

Don’t visit a location just once during your storefront search. Take a number of looks at various times in the day. Visit during a weekday morning, afternoon and even into the night. Weekend visits are even necessary if you’re open these days. Ideally, you want a building with safety and access as top priorities. Business can flourish from that point on.

Recycle dryer sheets

Today, I am going to share with you about how to use the dryer sheets and this I found in this yahoo link – http://finance.yahoo.com/news/dont-throw-dryer-sheets-away-234400083.html. It says that there are at least 45 different ways to recycle dryer sheets.

As for me, I recycled my dryer sheets by using it at least twice or thrice. In that way, I can save by buying new boxes of dryer sheets. Sometimes, I’ve got to use it in wiping my leather shoes. I think it is how you want to use it.

And reading this yahoo link, it gives me more idea of how I would recycle my used dryer sheets.
1. Clean bugs off from car
2. Ward off bugs – I do love this one as I didn’t know that it repels mosquitoes. So from now on, I’ll have to put dryer sheets in my pockets, and my kids pocket and I’ll see if this is effective.
3. Start a fire – I think this is useful during bb-q time or perhaps having a fireplace at home patios.
4. Freshen your car – yes I’ve been doing this, and it works for me.
5. De-static hair – I’ve got to try this when I can find static hairs on my kids, and I’ll see if this will work.
6. Deodorant marks – I’ve got to test this one too.
7. Get rid of static clings
8. Take off glitter nail polish – I don’t love nail polish so I think I cannot test this one
9. Vacuum cleaner bags – will try this one
10. Keeps clothes fresh – yes I’ve been doing this. I put used or even new dryer sheets in the cabinets.
11. Deodorize shoes – will do this one
12. Deodorize dirty clothes – will try this one out
13. Freshen a room – will try this too
14. Deodorize a diaper bag – haven’t tried this but I think it will work
15. Make books smells fresh
16. Freshen your pillowcase
17. Keeps drawings smelling good

And so much more…for the rest of the 45 different ways to use your dryer sheets, just visit this link – http://finance.yahoo.com/news/dont-throw-dryer-sheets-away-234400083.html.

Get your home renovation quote now

When you do not love your home or its form does not match its function, forget about selling it. All you need to fall in love with your home again is a renovation. Getting home renovation quotes from multiple contractors is the smart way to get the best price. Here are four tips for getting an accurate quote.

Have an Idea of What You Want

You do not need to have your entire renovation mapped out in your mind, but you do need to have at least some idea of what you want. A contractor can help you iron out the details, but you should at least know if you want new counters or an entire gutting and revamping.

Know Your Budget

Most contractors will do their best to work within your budget, provided it is realistic for your anticipated project. If you want new flooring and only have a certain amount to spend, be sure to let the contractors know. They will then be able to choose the right materials to include in their quote.

Listen to the Experts

A good contractor will not complete a project that will not last. If you are told that you need structural work or some other type of renovation to make your project ideas feasible, listen up. It does not make sense to get a quote for a project if it is going to need to be redone in the long run.

Get Multiple Quotes

Contractors charge different prices. Getting multiple quotes will help give you an idea of what is fair and what is not. Sites like Renovationexperts.com allow you to submit your project idea and get quotes from multiple contractors by filling out a single form. You will not have to waste time making phone call after phone call when you use a site like this.

Getting an accurate quote is the first step to turning your house into the home you love. Follow these tips to get the quotes you are looking for. When you do, you are sure to choose the right contractor for the job.

I shouldn’t experience frequent dbase errors huh

My webhosting experienced data base errors frequently. I wonder what was wrong. It maybe that I transferred some of my blogs in my own web hosting or what!? With this thing, I thought of deleting all my old records from my previous web host – as in total deletion as I already transferred everything that I had there and I don’t need it anymore. Besides, that shared hosting of mine will be due this 19th of April (I think) and I am not planning of renewing it as I want to save few bucks this year. Now that I deleted my old files from my old control panel, I want to check if I’ll experience data base errors. I don’t want to have errors in my own web hosting as it would be unfair for me. They already deleted the auto installer as they said that there’s no update from simple scripts so I ended up doing manual installation with the new domains or domain transfer that I am going to have. And now, I experience this data base errors in which I should not be since I am a good payer with my account. Anyway, I hope the thing that I did would help a little bit. I hope there will be no frequent data base errors since today and in the coming days, months, or years!  Hopefully!

Finding affordable insurance for my kids

Last Friday was my payday and I was happy with it (so thankful for two of my superiors who always give me jobs to do at the office). I was so thankful to God, to the company, and to the people around me. I thank God for all the money that He gifted me.

Since there were few orders to encode yesterday, I asked permission that I would go home ahead and I would just Continue reading
