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.

Focus on Money Saving Eyewear

The holidays are a time for reflection on the events of the year and what we want to accomplish for the new one.  Better health is often at the top of the list of things we want to focus on.  Not everyone wants to lose weight, in fact, there’s a trend away from body image shaming and placing on emphasis on getting too thin for the wrong reasons.  But healthy is always in.  And that includes healthy hearing and sight.
If you are diabetic, you probably know that many people with this disease find out they have it because they wake up one morning and their sight is so bad they can’t see. This happens because there is so much sugar in the lenses of the eyes they almost congeal.  Taking care of your sight becomes of the utmost importance from then on. I know because it happened to me.  
One thing I’ve encountered is the high price of glasses and frames which has made it difficult to afford to change my prescriptions as often as I should.  Well, that was the case until I found out about the low prices on Zenni Optical.  If you are concerned about the high price of prescription glasses and need to update your prescription you should try using a Groupon coupon for Zenni Optical and see how much money you can save.
I was attending a wedding recently and commented on the lovely glasses one of the guest was wearing.  She told me she bought them online, and that it was easy and convenient to do.  She really shocked me when she said she only paid $6.95 for frames because they fit her face perfectly even though she had never tried them on.  She used her prescription to order the lenses and used the Zenni online feature to see how her face would look in her new frames and voila!  New lenses and frames for less.
If you check out Zenni right now you’ll see great deals and saving of 10% on Active eyewear, Sophisticated eyewear, Kid’s eyewear and more.  They even have freebies you can easily qualify to receive.   And the online fit feature was easy to use.  You just upload a photo of your face and select the frame style you want.

I’m so glad I learned about Zenni Optical that day.  Since then I’ve told the folks in my support group about the site and the Groupons that can save them money, and possibly save their sight, too.

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…
