What’s the Best Way to Meet People?

Girl, Happy, Sitting, Pose, 3D, Render
Among the best things about dating in the modern era is that, more than ever before, we can be open and comfortable about what our preferences are. It’s an age of unparalleled openness and for those of us with body shape preferences, it is something of a fantasy.
That’s never truer than with dating. Thanks to a new wave of body favorable messaging and a scaling back of the outright hostility shown to plus-sized people, it’s a great time to be searching for love.
We are also living through a period of real choice when it comes to the way we meet people. From speed relationship to dedicated internet dating sites, there are plenty of ways you can meet new people, but what’s the best way to fulfill bigger men and women?
Quite simply, the solution is devoted BBW and plus-sized male dating sites. These websites are set up specifically to help connect larger people with the men and women who may love them, and boast one important and distinct advantage over not only general dating websites and programs, but more traditional dating methods also. So, what’s that benefit?
Among the major issues when we’re searching for love in our everyday lives is the fact that it requires loads of time and no shortage of luck to find the right person. Between our work, our family, our friendships and our personal life, we’re extremely busy people, and thus finding the time to get out there and become involved in the dating scene can be difficult.
It is an issue amplified by the fact that not only are single people difficult to locate, single plus-sized men and women are even more difficult to come by. With a dedicated internet dating site, however, none of this is an issue because not only can you do it at anytime from anywhere, but they’re full of bigger people and those that want them.
Indeed, dedicated BBW and big men dating websites nudge ahead of the new wave of relationship programs for the same reason.
Naturally, those are only some of the benefits that these websites offer. Therefore, if you are trying to find the ideal plus-sized person?

Back From Failure

Upset, Mad, Crying, Woman, Sad, Panicked
Attending a national conference in 2003 where I was scheduled to speak later in the program, there just happened to be a slot just before a break for me to get up and give a pitch on the subject I was going to present on. But there was a significant problem: not that I understood it when I agreed to get up and talk, but I was totally unprepared to make a pitch (to sell what I needed to say in a thumbnail sketch).
Immediately I got up before my peers, like intimidated suddenly by their presence in a way that confused me at the timeI became uncharacteristically flustered and bumbled my way through a short demonstration which ended up being a complete disaster. If you have ever sat down after one of these sorts of performances and been in immediate mental and emotional turmoil, you’ll know what it feels like to have neglected in a traumatising way.
Some failures hit that hard that we question our purpose, our place, our existence, even our existence.
But I wasn’t just traumatised for the rest of the afternoon, feelings of ineptness, embarrassment from shame, and guilt, and of course anger that I had harmed my reputation, and disappointment that I would let down not only myself but others who were counting on me, continued to swirl around in my mind and haunt me for weeks afterwards.
Whatever I did I could not seem to escape the strength of the complex anxiety hauled in my body, mind, and soul. I know it affected my home life in addition to my work life. I was unable to be present in my interactions with my peers, customers, wife or kids. I was easily angered because I was angry with myself, and I transferred that onto others.
All because of one brutal failure.
Why did one collapse strike so hard?
This 1 failure didn’t just harangue me for a couple of months, it shifted my confidence to talk professionally for a year or more. (Then, of all things, I had my world completely turned upside down, and in the process became a preacher!) There was something about that experience of completely failing that shook me to my core, shattering what confidence I had.
I know I’ll have plenty of friends here in raising my fears and concerns regarding public speaking. Getting up to talk to individuals has been one of the most harrowing experiences of my life, but it is not anymore. I used to wonder, ‘Why do I do this?’
There are times in all our lives when we face the humiliation of failure in a circumstance that bloats intrigue to the point that the experience traumatises us. And injury changes us. It challenges our thinking to such an extent that we’ll do almost anything not to have a replica of such a distressing experience.
In some ways, injury creates anxieties in us, logically for our defense, but illogically in ways that we become hypersensitive to anything even remotely re-traumatising. In the outer extremes injury completely interrupts our lives, and what was can never really be again. Unless we can somehow miraculously reinvent ourselves.
Among the best lessons I have learned from incidents that elicit injury is to drop my perfectionism. Also, to understand that certain events are the fate of us all (not excusing traumas of abuse). Along with the value of honesty, which attends to the top two issues.
Some events that involve injury can actually be good for us, in that we are given the opportunity to learn how to deal. Again, however, this is not about trauma we’re afflicted with from chronic or acute abuse, though I do believe there is hope for a semblance of recovery. (Remember the title of the article; it is not about the unrelenting trauma experienced by victims of abuse, particularly child abuse.)
Life is as much about learning how to survive injury because it is about learning how to thrive successfully.
One thing injury has taught me is how fast I allow fear to control me in certain circumstances. Awareness is a miracle; to become actively attentive to what ought to not frighten me but does. The invitation then is to follow the fear with fascination.
Fear copes well with the security of gentle curiosity.
If fascination remains gently interested it can help fear to trust in hope .

Ways To Treat the Wrinkles

Woman, Old, Wrinkled, Old Woman
Sun damage, stress, age, excessive work patterns, sugar consumption, smoking, excessive alcohol, all cause wrinkles on your face and make you seem much older. Have you seen the beautiful supple-skinned women of Japan and Korea? They experience many skin-treatments on a regular basis such as a similarly diet to make certain that the innate texture, glow and childhood of their skin and face remains as it is. Trends show that an average Indian Woman earlier was not so keen on herself. But, the times are changing and so are the perceptions of the Indian independent girls. They are now mentally prepared to take steps and experience cosmetic treatments to keep their beauty. Wrinkles act as the biggest detractors in this process. The under-eye wrinkles, forehead and around the lips wrinkles are the most prominent ones. Nobody, not even Queen Elizabeth, can completely eliminate them. But, we can definitely help you by delaying their occurrence and can make them less visible.
MINIMIZE DIRECT EXPOSURE TO SUN: It is more of a prevention strategy. The UVA and the UVB rays from the sun tend to damage the healthy layers of the skin and improve wrinkles.

Wraps and Salad Have Sickened Hundreds

Salad, Fresh, Veggies, Vegetables
Over 400 people are sickened by eating salad, food wraps and other things that contain fresh (uncooked) vegetables at different fast food chain restaurants since May 1, 2018. Others recently became sick after eating prepared salads or using vegetables bagged as salad ingredients brought home from food shop chains. Some men and women who prefer to lick the spoon after mixing homemade or prepackaged cookie or cake dough also got sick on account of the flour (already recalled) or eggs (salmonella) in the mix. Why have things like fresh vegetables and flour suddenly turn into a potential health threat?
No one will like the answer, but it’s the truth. In the late 1990s and early 2000s a lot of people started to become seriously ill and some died after eating fresh vegetables or prepared foods that contain them such as salads, tacos, wraps etc. Others got sick from raw batter and a few fruits. Please note that this was not just your typical case of food poisoning due to stale or undercooked food. These cases involved possible killers like campylobacter, e coli and listeria. Why so many cases and how did they get into our food?
You might be thinking this has to do with home cooks and restaurant employees not washing fresh veggies before using them in something like a salad, sandwich or wrap. Sadly, that hasn’t been the problem. Dirt and external contaminates like pesticides could be washed off vegetables. Washing will do nothing for veggies infected with campylobacter, e coli and listeria. There are more cases of vegetables infected with these contaminants now than ever before.
For several years the exact groups of migrant workers and their children picked U.S. grown produce. They tended to move around the country because they had work the majority of the year. When there was no create to harvest, they got jobs in food processing plants. However, as fast food franchises and chain restaurants became extremely popular in the 1980s and 1990s, growers grew more and there was a need for larger numbers of individuals to pick and help harvest their crops. This caused a massive influx of new faces from Mexico and South American Nations.
The old joke (and just a movie name ) says,”Don’t drink the water south of the border.” Why? Since the water supply in many of these poor countries is dangerously contaminated with all kinds of bacteria. That is because raw sewage is dumped into whatever water is available to move it away from populated areas in places lacking treatment facilities. This fact is proven by the normal contamination of seawater off San Diego beaches that’s sometimes so polluted with Mexican sewage that swimming is unsafe.
In many cases the identical freshwater that is badly contaminated with sewage is used for drinking and washing clothes. Because this has gone on for so long, the people in those places have built up immunities to most of the contaminates. However, they remain in their bodies. Sometimes growers do not offer any or proper portable restroom facilities for pickers or employees. Likewise, food processing plants that don’t enforce handwashing or other food safety procedures end up with the identical problem if their employees make physical contact with food through touch or perspiration.
Dangerous bacteria are sucked up into crops through the water they absorb from the ground. That type of contamination cannot be washed out; it is in the food. The same is true if bacteria gets into processed foods through carelessness. Testing helps with processing facilities, but it’s usually too late to catch all the tainted food products in time to keep everybody safe. Last year raw vegetables and a fresh fruit made one in six people in the USA and Canada sick. Far more than became sick due to undercooked or tainted beef, poultry, pork or fish. We don’t have the immunities that the pickers and food workers have to fight off harmful contaminants. So what can be done?
I suggest microwaving uncooked veggies for 1-2 minutes on high power. Scientists disagree with one another on the advantage of microwaving, but it has worked for me and my family for ages.
Fruits, well I can only suggest that you buy veggies and fruit grown in the united states. There are also many ways to cook fruit and still maintain its taste and health benefits. Cook meats and eggs thoroughly and avoid unpasteurized milk and cheeses. Beware of meats or fish produced and processed in other countries. Not long ago people were sickened by shrimp raised in badly contaminated breeding pools outside the USA

Oral Contraceptive Tablets

Pink Round Medication Pills
Exactly like going on the contraceptive pills, coming from these is also something you must consider before before deciding to actually do so.
Irrespective of what the reason was before you started the contraceptive pills, viz. Irregular periods, acne and menstrual cramps or for preventing unwanted pregnancy; your body goes through several changes when you’re on or off of these.
There’s no dearth of contraceptive pills in India and you can easily consult with a Gynecologist that will prescribe you the type and brand that suits you best.
So, back to the consequences; when you’re on the pills, most of the side-effects are positive ones.
• You will have a clear, acne free skin
• Decrease in the risk of ovarian cancer
• Regular periods
• No menstrual cramps
• Decrease in pelvic pain related to endometriosis
• No risk of unwanted pregnancy
What exactly happens when you opt to discontinue the use of oral contraceptive pills ? Although, it differs from woman to woman; a few of the effects after coming from the pills are:
• Skin Care break-outs and Acne: As it’s a frequent change, when you stop using the contraceptive pills, make sure you follow a strict diet and skin care regime to avoid getting hormonal acne.
• Breast tenderness: You might feel a little tenderness in your breasts for a couple of weeks. It typically wears off.
• Uterine cramping: This will occur on and off. It will not be a persistent pain that you will feel throughout the day.
• Moodiness, Irritability and higher stress level: You will be high-strung for most of the day due to hormonal upheaval in your system. If you’re still unsure but still need to discontinue them, ensure that you use another method of contraception.
• Water retention: This is something that you will need to take very seriously as it is a huge problem for women. Pay massive attention to some change in the fitting of your garments or if your hands/feet seem swollen. Go on a low-sodium, detox diet to eliminate water retention.
• Little Spotting: This is again not a regular thing.
You will come across the majority of these symptoms every now and then for some time and the transition is generally smooth for most of the women. However, make certain that you keep your Gynecologist informed about the changes you have been noticing and going through.
We are not trying to encourage the usage of contraceptive pills nor are we discouraging you to go off of them. It is your body and your decision to make. However, you need to be educated about the changes that you may experience. If you’re planning to have children and coming from oral contraceptives, make sure it’s done with meticulousness and preparation. You must be prepared for the changes in your body and how to deal with them.


Avocado, Vegetable, Food, Healthy

After Penelope Middleton published her latest book on Amazon,”Exotic Cooking,” she received a number of emails asking how to safely and easily seed an avocado. So, rising to the occasion like a hungry bass chasing a tasty meal, here is my proposed way to prepare an avocado. Beware… my way does involve a large, sharp knife!

First place the avocado on a proper cutting board. With an 8 inch chef’s knife or similar, score the avocado from the stem end all over the length of the avocado. Cut in deep enough so you feel the blade’s edge touch the single, large seed. After you have circled the avocado, then hold the avocado in both hands and twist along the cutline. The avocado should separate into two halves. One half will include the large, brown seed.

Put the Avocado half with the seed onto the cutting board, seed up. Keep your fingers away from the avocado. Take advantage of your chef’s knife’s cutting edge, harshly strike a blow on the center of the seed. Sink the blade to the seed. Then, holding the avocado half with one hand, gently twist the seed . The seed will come free from the avocado half.

Removing the Seed in the Knife

I remove the seed from the blade by gently pulling the seed out of the blade with the stainless steel edge of the sink. After washing the seed to remove any residual avocado flesh, I prepare the seed for rooting.

Avocado Slices

To make avocado slices, have a butter knife’s dull back edge and score the avocado flesh at 1/4 inch intervals, cutting to the shell but not through it. With the back edge of the butter knife, run it around the inside of the shell, loosening the slices. The slices should slip away from the shell and fall out onto a waiting plate.

And there you have it: a pitted avocado, sliced and ready for your use!

Starting an Avocado Seedling

I take an empty half liter plastic water bottle (I used an Arrowhead™ water bottle) and using a sharp razor knife, slit the bottle in half just above the flare in the middle. I drilled four holes around the pointed end of the seed using my trusty electric hand drill and a 1/16 inch drill bit. After seating a toothpick firmly into each of the four holes, I suspend the seed in the bottom half of the plastic jar. Then I put the seed in its starter container on a sunny windowsill. And that’s my new avocado tree, started from a seed.

Forklift Trucks

Box, Car, Forklift, Loader, Vehicle

Let’s face facts here, Forklift trucks aren’t sexy!

Nobody wakes up in the middle of the night thinking about how much they want the most recent VNA or Stacker in their life.

When was the last time you saw a poster of a forklift adorning the bedroom wall of a pubescent teenage boy. Or spoken to the young man in question about the way he remembers lying on his bed dreaming about the day when he could finally own one of these magnificent machines.

It just does not happen. Forklifts are mundane, perfunctory and pragmatic. They’re not designed to be anything other than functional. They do the job they are designed to do and then they are hidden in the corner for the nightout of sight and out of mind.

On the other hand, the humble forklift shouldn’t be underestimated. It plays a far more important role in our lives than you may think. Just take a second and imagine this for a moment.

Have a glance around the room you are in right now, maybe your office or perhaps you’re sitting in a comfy chair at home. Take a look and count the amount of items that will, at some point in their lives, have been touched by a forklift truck.

I guarantee that you could make a case for each and every thing in direct view of you right now having been perched on a pallet or stacked in a warehouse sooner or later.
So what can we do about it, what can we do to elevate those beasts of burden to the peaks that they so richly deserve?

The answer is: Nothing. The forklift truck is happy to live with its image issue. All it cares about is being used to its full potential, using its batteries charged and being maintained on a regular basis.

We take them for granted and just assume that they will go on forever. The truth of course is these noble machines need just as much care and care for as the most exotic Lamborghini or Ferrari if you are going to get the most from them.

This is where regular maintenance and servicing comes in.

It’s essential that you recognize the very important role that servicing and maintenance plays in keeping your forklift running, day in, day out and that you set a plan in place, sooner rather than later.

I’m sure we’ve all heard the horror stories of a forklift breaking down on a Friday afternoon leaving the mill on shutdown over the weekend and the MD pulling what’s left of his hair out. You really don’t want to find yourself in that boat.

Do your research, find an organisation you can trust and then you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your trusty forklift will go on and on.

Choosing a Parking Space

Parking Deck, Parking, Car Park, Deck

Driving, for starters have to be taken seriously. There’s something worth considering beyond the garage and greener designs. Thought must be given about public spaces that is very much an essential part of the sidewalks and roads infrastructure. This is because nothing is permanent, there might be a need to change to fit various other activities.

Already, lots of places are taken over by teenage partiers, road hockey games, farmers markets and church services. It is high time one realizes and encourages diversity. This is the reason as well as the main idea behind celebrating since 2005 a worldwide event, Parking Day which invites people to change the metered lots.

The urban and suburban lots have changed to a great extent and it’s definitely a glib that people should buy only fewer cars. It is time to favor public transport and stop relying on our cars too much. Owning and driving our personal cars is also essential, but that does not mean the public transit systems become abysmal completely. However, in larger cities like Los Angeles and New York, cars aren’t only going to go away and so there is a need to make and treat the city common places for parking, so the community values are equally kept.

Big cities like New York from the days of automobile boom are in need of parking spaces in particular ration according to per housing unit. Over the days, it’s come to light that the number of cars outweigh the parking spaces along with the rules regarding minimum parking spaces has resulted in the flats costs driving up for residents and developers. On the other hand these programmers have diverted money, damaged the environment and have produced a cityscape that is government-mandated that remains unused largely. Thus the parking lots which are already small stay glutted with vehicles.

With the increase in parking spaces, the new constructions and developers built hundreds of flats with parking spaces planning to lure tenants. But, the simple fact is these parking areas built for the apartment people stay vacant on many days or even on the working days for most portion of the day.

There are faults with the driver behaviour also. They take shortcuts, ignore stripes and drive staying alert to pedestrians, that result in more time each minute taken by every driver behaviour leads to traffic jam in peak hours. Going around big cities have to be done only after careful consideration of the summit and off-peak hours.

Poor Weather

Lightning, Thunder, Lightning Storm

We need different weather conditions to assist the planet’s eco system. We also sometimes enjoy the various weather conditions because of the variations of heat or coolness we receive. However, like most things, there’s always a security precaution to take when driving a car in these different weather conditions.

Wind is not the worst weather condition to experience. It frees us down a bit once the sun is burning our skin and it also dusts sand from our patios and verandas. Strong winds, though, can knock off the cars course. Sometimes the end makes us swerve across the road because of how strong the force is that’s pushing our cars.

Snow can be damaging in many ways. Does the freezing cold bring pain to our finger tips but it also makes a sheet of frost on the streets which make slippage very easy. Snow can also influence the car’s ability to start because of the lack of heat within the engine.

Extreme heats will not affect the car too radically but it can affect overheating whilst driving.

Fog is comparable to heavy rains except you can’t see a meter before you because of the depth of the cloud. Fog usually happens when the clouds drop very low to the ground. You will often notice fog in the mountain areas where snow and rain is common. It’s important to always have your bright lights or fog lights when in these conditions to make sure that you’re visible to other drivers.

Rain can influence how well we see when we are driving. This will usually occur when there are heavy rains that make the roads look like they have a white sheet covering them. Sometimes the cool rain fogs up the windscreen making it nearly impossible to see where the lines on the road are.

Rain could also influence how quickly we’re able to brake. The brake discs might cause a stopping motion to take effect but if the streets are lubricated with water, the tyres will not grip into the usually rough tar.

Various kinds of conditions can affect your car’s driving performance and impair your vision whilst driving. It is important to drive only once you know that it’s safe or if you know how to drive in such different weather events.


Transport, Heavy Duty, Truck

You may not give much consideration to the lowly trailer. Sure, it sits on the back of a car or truck and then it is largely forgotten about, until of course you actually should get an object from point A to point B. For some, trailers are merely part of normal life. If you are in the trades for example, or in landscaping, building or anything else which requires odd shaped tools and provides chances are you have a trailer.

That shut trailer is a superb place to store all your supplies and tools, it’s convenient as you go to a job, you just hitch up the trailer and all that you need arrives with you. Things can be neatly stored in there, from the components and locked up for security and to deter thefts. Having everything in one place means that you understand you have what you need to do the job and when it’s completed, you can pack up and head home knowing you’re good to go the next day.

If you operate at landscaping and have to take lawnmowers, edgers and big bulky bags of rock, sand and dirt around with you, using an open trailer creates a lot of sense. The open trailer does allow for weather to get to your supplies, but who cuts grass in the rain anyway?

Simple trailers help anyone regardless of their job. Those weekend warriors who go to the regional big box store and purchase supplies for their lawn, pond or DIY job have to have a way to get all of that stuff home. If you have ever tried piling paving stones into a trunk you will know you really need a trailer to get the work done.

Enter the trailer and you’re one step closer to fun. If you need removable sides they can do that, if you require it to be able to dump, you can have that too, and if you need salt or stone guards you guessed it, they’re available too!
