Choose an Engagement Ring

You've found the girl of your dreams, and you are going to pop the question...just as soon as you do what every man dreads: pick out the ring. That quest can cause a lot of stress. So here are a few steps to help you out.

Next time you're in the mall, take her by some jewelry stores and just browse the engagement ring section. Tell her to feel free to try a few on, and see which ones she really likes. If you feel uncomfortable or want the ring to be more of a surprise, then have a close friend of hers go with her just for fun.
Pay close attention to the jewelry she wears everyday. Try to familiarize yourself with the metals and styles she likes and maybe even those she doesn't.
Once you've figured all that out, go shopping on your own. Figure out what the best diamond (or precious gem) is for your budget and pick out a few rings. Tell the jeweler to hold them for you. Most places will hold them for up to a week. Or explain to the jeweler what you plan to do, which will come in the next few steps. Many of them will be willing to help play along, not only is it fun, but its part of their job when it comes to "The Ring".Schedule an appointment with that jeweler to clean or repair a watch or something of yours. Walk-ins are welcome in a lot of cases. Make sure she comes along. Casually browse over the selection of engagement rings, and get her to randomly try on the ones you picked out for her and judge her reaction. If she shows a strong preference for one ring, then you know which one to get.
Don't let her talk you down in price. If she is really the one, then she'll appreciate the fact you worked so hard to get the ring.

Don't buy a ring without knowing what she thinks of it.Have her shop online and send you a wish list of items she would like to have, this will help you get a clear idea of what type of cut for a diamond she prefers.If your potential fiancee has a close sister or friend, take the sister/friend along for advice.If she's close to her mom, her mom is likely to know what she'll like.

Most places will offer financing, and please don't buy a ring from a pawn shop! Make sure your ring comes with a warrantee and insurance in case anything happens to it. Don't hold the ring against her...i.e. don't use it as leverage in any future fight you may have.

Simple First Day of School

Must people think that middle school is intimidating but it really isn't.

Make a great first impression. Every teacher starts the first day of school with introductions, but teachers don’t usually tell the students much about themselves. Start your introductions with you as the centerpiece. Bring in a decorate box with photos of your favorite pet, actor or musician. It is a good idea to tell the students a lot about yourself but don’t tell them anything too personal. You want them to humanize with you from the beginning. They will sprinkle the conversation with comments about their household related to your likes and dislikes.
Build self-esteem. Adolescents suffer from major self-esteem issues. They enjoy being around people that make them feel good about themselves. On the first day of school, give them a good dose of self-esteem. After getting the typical paper work and introductions out of the way, begin a reflection exercise. To do this exercise you will need mirrors. You can get inexpensive mirrors from any dollar store. Have the students pair up and reflect about themselves in the mirrors. Make them write down ten positive things about themselves and their partner and then discuss them as a group in class. They will pretend to not have any thing to write about at first, but once you’ve nudged them along, the compliments will start flowing freely.
Build confidence. Build confidence with “The Burial” exercise. At the burial, you will have your students write down their biggest fears on a sheet of paper. Their fears can be related to school or not. Let them know that all their fears will be faced and overcame during the year. Dig a whole outside in a designated spot - approved by the principal of course – for the burial. Then, have students come up to the front of the grave site and bury their fears. They’ll surely talk about this tonight at the dinner table. This is a good thing, because you want as much of the first day of school on their minds that night. This will give them something to look forward to tomorrow. Now, they are excited about attending school.

Nurture mutual respect. The formation of cliques in middle school is a typical adolescent annoyance that can demolish all of the hard work and energy you put in building morale in your classroom. The same way you want students to humanize with you as a teacher is the same way you want them to humanize with each other. Bullying by cliques has been a problem for educators from the beginning of time, but with a little effort, you can lessen the effects of bullying in your classroom by nurturing mutual respect. On the first day of school, have your students spend a great deal of time getting to know each other. Allow them an hour to socialize. Encourage them to talk to each other about their favorite music, films and clothes. Stress the importance of speaking to every student in the class while taking notes. After social hour is over, have them share what they know about each other. Give the child who knows the most about each student a prize. Building bonds of affection will lessen the effects of a clique war later in the school year.
Offer independence. After socializing and learning more about each other, give students individual responsibilities by assigning classroom jobs. Running your classroom like a corporation makes them feel like adults. Since everyone knows more about each other, it becomes easier to figure out who will run messages to the office, who will set up the TV and DVD player for classroom movies, who will collect money for field trips and who will keep notes on classroom projects. Let everyone comment and on each other’s strengths and weaknesses again fostering compassion.
Don’t forget the rules! Classroom management is one of the most important parts of teaching, if not the most. If you do not have authority with your students, everything you’ve worked hard for will go out the window. They have to respect you, so be stern but fair. If you do not lay the rules down on the first day of school, the James Dean effect will start to soak in the fabric of your classroom.

Keep the lines of communication open. In the movie Mean Girls, Tina Fey’s character, Ms. Norbury, brought the entire female student body in the gym to air their grievances after a colossal misunderstanding on campus. When the girls realized how much they had in common, they began to sympathize with each other and empower themselves. Middle school students will absolutely do the same with open lines of communication. Invest in a “The Hot Seat”. The hot seat is just an ottoman used as a special chair. You know as well as any teacher does that students love sitting in special chairs. At the end of the first day of school, introduce your hot seat. Have each student sit in the hot seat and tell what he or she enjoyed most about the first day. Whenever convenient, revisit the hot seat by having students share their grievances and comments during the year discussing ways to improve the classroom environment. Let them know on the first day that this will take place occasionally giving them something to look forward to and making them feel like they an investment in the class.

First Day Of School

Today are my kids first day of school. My daughter was trill to go back to school but my son isn't. They said boys are always like that, I am not sure why boys does not like school that much. But certainly my son does not like school. When I walk them to school this morning he does not want me to say by and hug him in the public, he said that would be embarrassing, I just laugh and told him that I will say by before we leave the house then and we leave it at that.

My daughter on the other hand, wa kind of embarrass giving a hug at first but she did anyway. Oh kids, they are grwoing so fast.

Bake Red Velvet Cupcakes

Have you always wanted to make a special dessert that's not only delicious, but easy? Well this is how to make red velvet cupcakes with vanilla cream cheese frosting! These are the same moist little cakes, with a twist - vanilla cream cheese frosting. This easy recipe is fun, fast, and tastes great!

Ingredients:

* a box of white cake mix
* 1/3 cup of melted semi-sweet chocolate
* red food coloring
Frosting:
* 1 package (85g) of philly cream cheese
* 1/4 cup or 1/2 a stick (56g) of butter
* 16 oz (450g) of powdered sugar
* 2 tablespoons (29g) of sour cream
* 2 teaspoons (10ml) of vanilla extract

Follow the directions on the box, starting with the cake batter. Mix together all of the different ingredients, adding the melted chocolate at the end. To melt chocolate, put in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave in 20 second intervals; stirring each time.Start adding the red food coloring. The exact measurement differs each time you make it. Just keep adding coloring until you get the color you desire.Scoop batter into cupcake tin, filled with liners. Bake cupcakes according to directions on the box (15-20 minutes).After baking, let cupcakes cool completely.To make vanilla cream cheese frosting, start by beating cream cheese, butter, sour cream, and vanilla together until light and fluffy.Gradually add the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.Frost the cupcakes. To do this, either use a spatula or a Ziploc bag to pipe on frosting. Decorate according to the occasion or however you like! Enjoy your delicious cupcakes!

Chocolate chips are easier to melt and sometimes cheaper to buy.
If your frosting is a little runny, just put it in the refrigerator until firm. Also don't forget to scrape sides of the bowl while mixing cake batter and when making frosting.

Be careful not to over-mix batter.
This cake is naturally moist and may seem undercooked but isn't.
It may be hard to frost if made into a 2-layer cake.
The cupcakes may crack on top while cooling.

Keep a Cut Apple from Turning Brown

When you cut open an apple, an enzyme (tyrosinase) in the flesh reacts with oxygen to turn polyphenols into melanin (the same pigment that makes you tan). Here's how to halt the process so your apples stay bright and white.

Choose apples that are less prone to browning. A study found that Arangeh tend to brown the least. Granny Smith and Golden Smoty apples also showed minimal browning. Golden Delicious apples were in the middle, and Red Delicious apples browned the most.Cut the apple underwater. This keeps the enzyme from making contact with oxygen. Keep the cut apple in the water until ready to serve. Coat the exposed flesh in acid. By bringing the pH below 2, the enzyme that makes the apple flesh turn brown is deactivated.[3] Here are some acids you can use:
Ascorbic acid, better known as vitamin C. Look for it in the canning section or pharmacy as powder. Apply directly or dissolved in water (1/2 tsp. per 2 1/2 cups of water
Lemon or lime juice. It's not as effective as ascorbic acid, but it'll do in a pinch, and they're more readily available. The juice can be diluted up to 3:1. Lemon juice will have a less obvious taste than lime juice. Blanch the apples. This will denature the enzyme. Let the apple sit in boiling water for one or two minutes, then rinse with cold water. They can then be eaten, frozen, or used for apple pie. Cover exposed apple flesh tightly in plastic wrap. This will work best if you have half an apple (as opposed to pieces). Try to keep the creases on the exposed side to a minimal. This technique has allow to keep the air away from the apple flesh to prevent the the apple flesh from oxidizing. Soak apple pieces in a slightly salty water solution for a few seconds. Remove and enjoy white apple pieces for a considerable time. Works well if you're adding apples to a fruit salad.

These techniques will also work for potatoes. It's the same underlying mechanism. Also, the sharper the knife you use, the better.If you coat the apple with an acid, the flavor can be affected, and picky eaters might notice. Try sprinkling apples with Jello powder or Kool-aid powder. Jello adds sweetness. None of these techniques last indefinitely, but all are useful to keep the apples from turning brown for a few hours, for instance, if you wanted to include them on a cheese or fruit tray.

Small Town Of Cashmere


My daughter and I spend early evening walking down town Cashmere yesterday. Cashmere is a small town at North Central WA. Home of Aplets & Cotlets. The geographic center of Washington. Cashmere Washington Facts:

Incorporated 1904

Population 2,714

Elevation 895

Average Annual Precipitation 13 inches

Average days with Sunshine 300

Acres in City Limits 575

Streets and roads 15 miles

Cashmere started out as "Mission" in 1873, named for the log church built by the Catholic missionary Father Grassi. In 1904 a name change was necessary because there was another "Mission" in Washington State, and the post offices kept getting the mail mixed up! Judge James H. Chase suggested the name Cashmere, comparing the town's natural beauty to the Vale of Kashmir in India.

When you visit Cashmere, you are in the geographic center of Washington State, nestled in the foothills of the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains. Surrounded by State and Federal forests, our location beckons visitors of all persuasions. Local orchards line the hills and banks of the Wenatchee River, as it winds through the valley, providing a spectacular blanket of color throughout the growing season. Blessed with 300+ days of sunshine each year, Cashmere welcomes visitors to enjoy the multitude of activities and opportunities for fun and adventure that abound in this proud community.

Cashmere is a beautiful small community nestled in the foothills of the Eastern Cascade Mountains of Central Washington. We are a proud community with a strong tradition of community support and caring. Our main industry is our fruit industry with apples, pears, cherries, peaches and many more, which surround our homes and business area and provide a spectacular blanket of color throughout the growing season, along with 300 plus days of sunshine each year. We are home to Liberty Orchards, producers of the world famous Aplets and Cotlets and many other confectionery delights. Factory tours are offered daily followed by many free samples in our wonderful Country Store. We have shops and restaurants in our small business district and many home businesses. Cashmere affords great business opportunities and is in an ideal location for growth and tourism.

The Wenatchee River flows majestically through our community along with other creeks and streams, which are fed by the run off waters of the "Beautiful Snow Capped Cascade Mountains". We are surrounded by hills and mountains, which are spectacular in each of our seasons. We have great outdoor recreation advantages in our valley: snow skiing, water skiing, fishing, hiking, camping, backpacking, biking, hunting, and much more. We are an historic community with a wealth of local and regional history, which can be seen and experienced at our Pioneer Village and Historical Museum, offering wonderful tours, which are a walk, back into history. Within our community we have many parks, which provide comfortable and leisurely places to stop, ponder your thoughts and just plain relax. We have the distinct honor of being "Tree City USA", and a walking arboretum for your pleasure and enjoyment. We are only minutes away from the mighty Columbia River, which is ideal for all water sports and activities and several hydroelectric dams nearby. We are surrounded by state and federal forests and at the edge of the Central Washington desert. Just 45 miles to our north is the beautiful Lake Chelan, another area for recreation and relaxation. To our west is the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth and to the east is Wenatchee. We are approximately 2 ½ hours east of Seattle, Washington, 3 hours west of Spokane, Washington, and about 4 hours from the Canadian border. We are ideally situated in the center of the State of Washington, and we are blessed with four outstanding and spectacular seasons each year, and each has its own splendor. Cashmere, Washington is a must see. We are the Gem, of the Pacific Northwest and a great place to work, run a business, live, play and above all, grow.

Participate in the Cash for Clunkers Program

You may have heard about the Cash for Clunkers program in the United States, but have questions about how to participate. This article seeks to answer those questions, and hopefully get you into a newer, more fuel-efficient vehicle.

Decide that you actually want to trade your current vehicle in.If your car is relatively new, is a desirable model or is is performing well, it may be worth more than the money you would receive under this program.
Make sure that you can afford a potentially higher car payment. Check to see if your insurance will increase if you buy a new car. Be sure to factor that in to your cost calculations. See if your car qualifies:Your current vehicle must be a 1984 model year or newer.You must have owned and operated it, and had it registered and insured in your name for no fewer than 12 months. It must have been certified to get 18 miles per gallon or fewer when it was brand new. The owner of the trade-in must have their name on the title of the new vehicle. The 'clunker' must be in drivable condition.

Go shopping for a new car. If your trade is reliable, bring it as well, along with your registration for it and its title.Do your research to determine what kind of vehicle will best meet your needs, and what models that do so get the best gas mileage. Check organizations such as Consumer Reports to learn about the reliability of the vehicle models you are interested in. Look for other incentives that may be available to you in addition to the Cash for Clunkers rebate. Be sure to purchase a new car that gets at least 4 MPG better than your original car. The amount of rebate you qualify for is affected by the difference in mileage between old and new vehicles.If the new vehicle gets 4-9 miles per gallon more than the trade, you qualify for $3,500 under the Cash for Clunkers program.
If the new vehicle gets 10 or more miles per gallon more than the trade, you qualify for $4,500 under the Cash for Clunkers program.

Check your car's eligibility for the program at this government fuel economy website: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/CarsSearchIntro.shtml. Use the dealer locator form on the CARS site to find participating dealers: http://www.cars.gov/dealer-locator.The Cash for Clunkers program is not subject to any kind of testing of the trade-in vehicle. As long as it can be driven, it qualifies. You should be able to transfer your registration from the trade to the new vehicle.While the program is funded by the American government and the top vehicles bought are American cars, you do not need to buy an American car to qualify.
Getting a rebate under this program does not preclude getting a rebate under any other incentive programs.Your Cash for Clunkers rebate can be combined with other dealer incentives, such as special financing options. Your Cash for Clunkers rebate can also be combined with other governmental incentive programs such as the hybrid tax credit.

The mileage of your trade is what it was when it was brand new, not what it is now. Your car could get 13-15 miles per gallon, but still not qualify if it got 20 MPG when it rolled off the lot. Your trade might be worth more than the benefit you qualify for, in which case you don't want this program at all, and should negotiate a tradeIf you know what mileage your car got brand new, you know what your trade is worth under this program. If a dealer tells you different, get out - they may be trying to cheat you.The car you trade under this program will be destroyed, under the rules of the program. If it has any sentimental value, consider another option.

Stop Taking Things Personally

Does someone else's bullying personality make you feel like you're worthless? Do you mistake people's antics for subtle insults? This article will highlight some ways in which you can remain unaffected by others' opinion of you, whether it's a weird look, a teasing remark, or direct criticism.

Give the benefit of the doubt. If you have a habit of taking things personally, it means that you're apt to assume someone is directing some form of aggression towards you specifically, when they might be just joking around, or having a bad day. It might be your instinct to react, or curl up into a ball emotionally, but pause for a second. Maybe it's not about you. Learn How to Gain Control of Your Emotions. Refocus your attention. When you take things personally, you shift your attention from what they said or did to how you feel. Unless you move on from that point, it's likely that you'll ruminate, and the negative feeling will be amplified. Instead, focus again on the other person.Look at how the person treats others. They might tease, pick on, or even insult everyone they cross paths with. Some people are just antagonistic like that.
Consider their insecurities. Could they feel threatened by you in some way? If so, don't feel bad for being your awesome self. Think about how you can help this person feel better about themselves. Keep in mind that the other person probably has poor communication and emotional management skills. Imagine that there's an inner child acting out, because the person hasn't learned how to deal with things in a mature way. It's much easier to be patient and feel compassionate when you visualize a learning child at the helm of their behavior. Remind yourself that you don't need anyone's approval. If you're especially sensitive to people's behavior towards you, to the extent that you regularly overreact, it might be because you've got a strong radar for rejection. If you pick up on any kind of displeasure, you worry that you're doing something wrong, and you want to fix it eagerly, anxiously. But just because someone isn't happy with you doesn't mean you've done something wrong. In many cases, it means that person isn't happy with themselves, and expects you to fill in the blanks (which is impossible).

Speak up. Let the person know that they're being harsh. Again, focus on them, not you. You're doing them a favor by letting them know how their words and actions come off from the outside. They might not realize how hurtful or aggressive they seem; and if they do, they need to know that they can't just plug in their negativity without it being noticed. Here are a few ways to approach this:Raise your eyebrows and say "Ouch!" or "Whoa! That's a bit a harsh!"
When a person snaps at you, turn to them and genuinely ask them "Are you okay?" or "Is something wrong?". If this is recurring, use nonviolent communication to (hopefully) put an end to it, and resolve any underlying issues. Stop taking compliments personally, too. If you base your self-worth on how much people compliment and validate you, then you're basically allowing others to decide how you feel about yourself. If someone compliments you, it's no more personal than a direct insult.[1] They're simply calling it how they see it, and that may or may not be accurate--only you can be the judge of that. So if someone is positive towards you, that doesn't make you a better person, it makes them a better person, because they're taking the time to be supportive and encouraging. Your value, your self-worth remains unchanged, because it's something that comes from within.

If you have a hard time with criticism in particular, read How to Accept Criticism With Grace and Appreciation.Don't stop taking things personally to the extent that you absolve yourself of any personal responsibility. If someone's acting out towards you, it is possible that you did something wrong. The focus of this article, however, is to remember that it doesn't automatically mean you did something wrong. You still need to evaluate your role in the situation. When following the step Speak up: Are you alright? or Is everything OK?, be careful to do it sincerely. If the shift of attention is felt as patronizing or implying criticism, it might detonate an aggressive response on the other person and will probably complicate the situation further.

Enhance Your Beauty and Looks

Ever wanted to become more natural and see how beautiful you really are? Here's how to enhance your natural beauty. All these will lead to a healthy mind, and therefore a healthy and beautiful body/face.

Visualize. You need to visualize the specific changes if you truly want to change your look. What will any improvements you make look like? Healthier hair? Streamlined body? Clearer skin? These changes are realistic and attainable. Stay away from goals you'll never reach. Mirrors Boost Attitude! Look in the mirror and, ignoring your flaws, state different things that are gorgeous and unique about you; the color of your eyes, your nose. Do everything better. The way you use your beauty products will make all the difference in results.For instance, try to duplicate what you see and feel your hair is shampooed at a salon. The product is always handled, never poured directly on hair.Add a massage to your scalp when washing. While rinsing, lift your hair away from your scalp for about two minutes until it squeaks. Discover The Virtues of Vanity. Confident women enjoy experimenting as a way of relieving stress and boost morale. Women who care about how they look are fascinating to watch, and teach us about taste and glamour. Vanity is a positive virtue, allowing us to fix our heads as well as our looks. So get experimenting!

Look amazing. Rather than running around looking for beauty in pricey external products, discover within yourself. Make the most of what you have. You'll learn to like yourself and that will spark a light within. Do One Thing For Yourself Everyday!Make yourself do it. It's the ultimate act of self-respect. Soak in the bubble bath or read an inspiring book. These little pleasures allow you to feel special. You can fake it if you, until you actually feel deserving of it. Whatever you choose, follow the action by writing down what you did and how it made you feel. Make it your own "attitude file". Include stories, quotes from friends and photographs that have made you feel good about yourself. Project your beauty. Feel good, feel pretty and that's just what the world will see. If you feel ugly, that's what the people will see. Try to look as good as you can. There are ways to live in beauty without being obsessive about it.

Find Supportive Friends.What people say, whether intentional or not, make us feel good or bad about ourselves. Look for people who make you feel good when you're down. This person will give you compliment. If you've done something different or if you're wearing something new, they will notice it. Keep this compliments and they will build your self esteem. Listen To Your Inner Voice. Each of us has a voice inside our head that will give us advice. This is like a therapist. It will guide us in the right direction. It will calm us down, cheer us up and even help us figure out why we're overeating or not bothering to iron our clothes. The problem is that we often don't take time we need to hear this important information. Schedule some quiet time in a leisurely bath or walk, or even while putting on your makeup. Treat this intuition as an inner cheering section. Take A Break! Relax. At least twice a day, set aside five minutes to recheck your make-up, hair, posture and clothing. No matter how impeccably you started out your day, a touch is both necessary and warranted. Take some deep breaths to renew and restore your appearance.

Take good care of yourself. Don't compare yourself with someone you've seen on the TV or movie screen or on the cover of a magazine. Accept your uniqueness and capitalize on it.

Track of Your Keys

There are arguably few things worse than the sinking feeling you get when you return home only to find that you have lost the key to your house. Even if this hasn't happened to you, you've probably at least found yourself in a rush to leave home but unable to find where you left your keys. Don't worry. If you keep a couple of simple things in mind, you can always keep track of your keys.

Consistency is the key to keeping your keys. Decide which pocket you will carry your keys in and stick to it religiously. You should always know to check your left front pocket for the keys, for instance. You need a safe place at home to keep your keys, and you must never put them down anywhere else. This means that you have to empty your pockets as soon as you get home. When you use your keys, make a habit of carefully replacing them in their proper pocket, just as you make a habit of locking and unlocking doors. This will require a conscious effort until your routine is firmly established. Make a habit of always checking your pocket for your keys before you leave a place. Just a quick pat of your pocket (and wallet!) will assure you that you have them.

An alternative is to choose one place in every room where you can put down your keys. That way, in case you are not able to put your keys in their normal place in the house, there are much fewer places to look before you find them. You just have to look in one spot in each room to see if your keys are in that room. If you don't wear pants with trustworthy pockets, you will have to carry your keys in a jacket or a pocket in your bag. The same principle of consistency still applies. If all else fails, make sure a neighbor you trust has your house key, or you can hide it somewhere only you will be able to find, e.g. a flowerpot. A cheap rock climbing carbines with a key ring clips nicely to a belt loop if extra security is wanted.

Beware of staking a claim to a "key spot" in your home without consulting with your housemates. You don't want someone to "clean up" your carefully placed keys. Once you've established your routine, all you'll have to worry about are the times when you break your routine, such as when you wear shorts. These times call for extra attention to your keys. Never put your keys under something that looks like it could be safely stepped on, like clothing on the floor. You could break your keys, or hurt yourself.
