If you spend a lot of time with somebody, each birthday is an event worth celebrating and simply having the other person close to you is a reason to rejoice. Nevertheless, a birthday present is a mute yet incredibly powerful statement of affection and appreciation and even if the recipient doesn’t need any confirmation, it is always reassuring. It is also a challenge, because after many years of being together you have a large collection of gifts between the two of you, and it is always hard to outshine the previous.

The challenge shouldn’t be to offer a more precious birthday present each time, but simply to cause a brief moment of sincere and intense happiness to the dear one. That is why a personalized gift, or one that transmits a very powerful message will ensure the success of your attempt. The internet is as always, you best friend if you only know where to look for and what to expect, in terms of both quality and price.

Money shouldn’t be a determining factor, but if you can cut down on costs without making compromises, it is even better. No matter if the recipient of the birthday gift is a lover, a spouse of a member of your family, the odds are that you will find an object that will be appropriate. From candles and small jewelry to the finest sweets ever created, you will have no problem in finding the perfect birthday present and if distance is of the essence, you can also have it shipped to destination, regardless of how far it is.


When you think about promoting your brand, you are tempted to consider grandiose settings that demand big investments to succeed. Even so, they are not guaranteed and if you fail, all the money that has been invested in the campaign goes down the drain. A lapel pin might seem insignificant if compared with other marketing tools, but if the right logo and slogan are chosen, the results can exceed the expectations.

An advertiser tries to reach the audience and make a strong impression, if possible have him asking questions and getting involved. A lapel pin will then instantly be noticed by the people around the wearer, and if it looks good enough many questions will be asked. For those who want to promote their business locally, or at various national events, the lapel pin can serve as a valuable tool. If you and your associates are wearing one, and the other participants ask you about the lapel pin, be ready to provide the exciting answers they are hoping for and even present them with one as a gift.

Few people would refuse it and most of the ones who like it will not hesitate to wear it, if not for long at least during that event. You are already a step closer to achieve the level of exposure you hope for, and you can always go a step further. If you are organizing an event, being a corporate meeting, a fundraiser or other special occasion, make sure you have a couple of lapel pins on you to reward the participants.


Is there anyone else these days who doesn’t love a Blackberry? Businesses use them as an integrated part of their communications systems. It is a status symbol for individuals to possess one. From the things I see and hear about them, they have to be one of the best phones out there today. What more convenient way is there to get one than to find Blackberry Storm online?

These days we buy everything else online, why not Blackberry. If you shop the big online discount stores, even though you’ll pay shipping, it will probably still be less expensive than purchasing one at a big box, electronics stores or mall kiosk.

Blackberry has a lot of different phone models to choose from these days. I believe I’ll be keeping my Storm (love that touchscreen), the screen is quite large and easy to read for such a compact phone. The Storm also supports what seems like unlimited apps. If you have some occasion to use one, you’ll soon see that you can cease carrying the old laptop around, the PDA, the MP3 player and the digital camera. I’m preaching again, aren’t I? I don’t mean to, I am just a big fan of this phone.

It is time to get out there in cyberspace and find the perfect storm for you. It won’t be long until you won’t know what how you ever got along without it. Let’s get out there and see if we can’t help you find Blackberry storm online.


The heat wave is on and will endure until the end of October or November, I guess. For some reasons, I don’t like summertime as it triggers more migraines and discomfort. Though most of us love the outdoors and frolicking under the sun is the norm, I prefer to stay on a shady place or indoors where A/C is pumping in a full blast. However, I’m aware that going outdoors are inevitable considering we have an active tot that enjoys the alfresco.

So off we went to Seaworld yet I was armed with a jacket to brace the heat for the long weekend holiday. Initially, I was feeling fine seeing my little Koala enjoying the Elmo’s ride, perhaps it was past noontime were high temperature was on its peak while we were watching the Shamu show. It was really HOT and everybody was all sweating and looks red, but still we were enjoying in watching the show while stuffing ourselves with any junk foods we can see.

To make the story short, I suffered a heat stroke, and we went home earlier than intended. After the trip, I felt so hangdog because of overeating, and now I’m trying to find the best diet pill that works as I gained more weight. Oh well, it’s time to hit the gym again.


Sometimes we are blinded by the aggressive marketing, and if we are exposed for enough time to the advertising campaigns, we tend to let out mind idle and choose without thinking. We put a lot of emphasis on keeping the house and all the items inside clean and tidy, because we care about both the aesthetics and the possible impact on the health. What we ignore are what kind of products we are using to clean the sheets, wash the clothes or drapes and remove the stains from our carpets.

If the cleaning products get the job done, and they leave a pleasant scent behind, we consider ourselves lucky to have stumbled across such a product and try to remember its name. We automatically assume that a pleasant smell has to be natural, hence healthy, when in reality, it is the other way around. A detergent can’t smell like flowers and still be even remotely natural, because there are no flowers or extracts used to make it.

There are only potentially harmful chemicals that we inhale each time we smell our newly washed clothes. To put things into perspective and think this issue through is not easy, specially with some people falling easily for absurd claims, that state for example, that your clothes will smell like the evening breeze. Most of us have no clue if there is such a thing as an evening breeze, not to mention the absurdity of the statement that it has a defining scent. Using cleaning products that smell nice, is as healthy as to buy step stools with rusted nails popping out, simply because we find the color they are painted in, lovely.


No matter how important your job is and how stressful the office hours. You should return home knowing that is your sanctuary where you can relax. This sounds like common sense and in theory, everyone can apply this, but reality paints a very different picture. While we have to obey the instructions given by the boss during office hours, we sometimes force ourselves doing things we don’t necessarily want when we are at home. We do them because we know that they are the right thing to do.

Conscience can be a far more severe boss than what we’re pitting against at the office, because there is no way to deceive it. Still, this doesn’t mean that we should become the slaves of our routine and every now and then, we should reconsider our position and try to make our life better. Excessive cleaning is usually the direct result of a phobia of disease that is not based on solid facts, but rather rumors.

They say we shouldn’t believe everything we hear on TV, but when the information scares us bad enough, we are instantly converted into believers. Just like we don’t rush to the phone and order the latest Téléphones cellulaires imported from France, simply because a commercial tells us to, we should double check everything. Instead of vacuuming all day and scrubbing the floors like crazy, we could just as well lay back and relax, because a weekly cleaning will be more than enough to keep us safe.
