5 Tips For Creating a Romantic Night and Fun Dinner at Home

Valentines Day is just around the corner and maybe you're already thinking how to make this occasion really special. Here are some ideas for a romantic and fun dinner at home either for several couples or just for two.
Sensual Scents
Whether planning for one guest or several couples, let robust spices (think cloves, canela, cardamom and black pepper) help set the mood with the help of a standard frying pan. Toast the spices just to their smoking point, and the room will fill with an inviting--and delicious--bouquet.
Pairing Is Caring
When prepping for a perfect evening, pairings are a fun way to turn any meal into a special occasion and spice up the fun. Plan three courses and pair each with a small cocktail. A fun and easy way is to use one base spirit in three different ways.
Make It A Group Effort Let your guests in the kitchen and encourage them to enjoy the tactile sensation of the food as it is prepared. Start the party early and enjoy cocktails as you cook.

Surprise call

Last week my cousin and “kababata” made a surprise call. The last time we talked was 2 years ago. That time I heard the depressing news from her that she was a victim of an Online Investment Scam. She said at first it was promising, her investment multiplied so fast. She and her family even had a chance to travel to Hongkong because of that. But eventually her joy did not lasts, her investment just blew away when they found out that the Company has gone away with their hard earned money. What’s worst with my cousin is, since she’s a bank teller she convinced some of the bank clients to join with her. And what happened after that incident, all of those bank clients were after her! They demand that she returned all the money they invested. My cousin was so helpless, she was crying while sharing her sad fate. She just pleaded with her branch manager not to report the incident to the management because definitely she will be terminated. At that time I said to her that financially I can’t help her and the only thing I can offer is my prayer that God will help and deliver her from her situation.
After that conversation for 2 years I did not hear from her, until last week she called me up again. When I heard her voice I thought she has already recovered. But she told me that there were some people still harassing her, she tried her best to return a part of their investment, but they want her to return their 100% investment which she’s not capable of. Now her plan was to go to USA, she said her husband’s sister is in America and that he wants her to try to work there. Last year her husband went to US as tourist and now that he’s back in our country he said it’s now her turn. She said she really do not want to leave her job and that she wants to prove that she doesn’t want people to think that she’s escaping from them and that she don’t want to give in to trials, but then since she was granted with US visa, her branch manager advised her to just file for resignation rather than be terminated, because once terminated she can’t get separation pay and other benefits from the company.
Though it’s hard for my cousin to leave her three kids, her youngest is only 3 months old, she has decided to go to US, she said it’s her only way to financial recovery. She told me she needs money right away to buy for a plane ticket and she asked me if I know where she could apply for a loan. She said it’s her only way to get money because her family already spent for the wedding of her youngest brother and that she can’t ask for financial help. Again even if I wanted to lend her the money she needs, I have nothing to give because of my own situation. I just recommend some financial institutions where she can get quick cash loans. After an hour we ended our conversation with a promise that we’ll see each other before she leaves for US. I’d like to talk to her and pray for her personally, I hope she’ll be able to visit here in our province.

Cancelling Timeshares: When to Do It

Sometimes buying a timeshare will seem like a great idea upfront, but turn out to be something that doesn’t quite fit into your budget. In these circumstances, it’s important to consider how to get out from under a timeshare.
Why Cancel Timeshares
Sometimes timeshares aren’t what anyone thought that they would be. The pitch sounds good and so you sign up. While there is usually a period of time where you are allowed to rescind the contract. A few days to a couple of weeks is usually the timeframe that you have. If you decide after that point in time to cancel, then you may have to go through a longer process. Still, one of the reasons that people get rid of the timeshares is because it doesn’t fit into their budget. If this is you, then there are ways that you can get out from under it.
Timeshare Cancellation Services
Timeshares are notoriously difficult to sell. There is little control over timeshares. Likewise, there are fees that you have to pay, regardless of whether you use the pro…

3 Tools to Help Special-Needs Students Thrive

Learning is not a one-size-fits-all system. Students with physical, mental or learning disabilities often benefit from an unconventional approach to education. These three tools can help them get through each school day with a sense of achievement.
1. Rules and Rewards
Rules provide a necessary amount of structure to a child's day. Stating rules and expectations clearly and having a visual reminder of what those expectations are will help kids navigate their choices. Placing a colorful list of rules up at home or in the classroom can be really helpful. Pairing rules with rewards for good behavior is also a great motivational tool. It helps kids learn that actions have consequences and empower them to make good choices.
2. Tactile Tools
Though many classrooms cater to an auditory learning style, not all students thrive within that kind of environment. For kids with visual or auditory impairment or for kids who have trouble focusing on their schoolwork, getting through class can be e…

How To Choose a Quality HVAC Professional

Florida is known for swampy days, lots of sunshine and warm temperatures. The worst feeling is the air conditioner going out in the dead of summer. Even the breeze off the water does little to cool the house. Here are some tips to choose a quality heating and cooling professional.
Family and friends are a great place to start looking for a Riverview FL heating and cooling professional. They can tell you who they loved using and who they didn’t. A flashy website or radio ad may sound good but talking to people and reading testimonials can give you a better idea on whether or not they deliver on their promises.
An HVAC contractor shouldn’t give you with an estimate over the phone without properly inspecting your insulation, air conditioner or vents. How can they know how much work is to be done without ever looking at your unique situation? An inspection shouldn’t cost you anything.
If the HVAC contractor has a website, see if they post their licensing and c…
