Think About The Right Boat Before Bying It

Posted on Sabtu, 30 April 2011 | 0 komentar
The first thing you should know when choosing a boat is that no single boat will do everything. If your looking for a boat that inspires confidence, don't expect it to shine in light air. Boats that are exciting to sail on the weekends aren't the ideal boats for a passage through the ocean.

You shouldn't expect to find quick acceleration and load carrying capacity together with the same boat. You can buy a boat now to race or fish, then sail around later - as you can only do one or the other with a specific type of boat.

The logic to choosing the right boat is determining how you plan to use the boat. Think about why you want to own a boat, what you plan to do with it, and how you plan on using it.

For some, beauty is the first consideration. For sail boats beauty is very important, as you'll spend a majority of time floating and sailing around, with many people looking at your sail boat. With people looking at your vessel, you want to make sure that it looks nothing short of amazing.

If you are planning to race instead of cruise, then speed is your primary consideration. There are many cruising sailors out there who simply can't be happy unless their boats are moving very fast. The ideal boat for speed demons are those that can cut through the water, creating plenty of waves.

Fishermen on the other hand, want to look towards fishing boats. Trackers and other boats that are designed for fishing are ideal here. Fishing is one of the most popular boat activities, meaning that you'll have plenty of boats to select from.

When it comes down to it, selecting the right boat is up to you and what you plan to do with it. Take your time, weigh your options, and you'll have the right boat before you know it.

Pool Billiards Equipment. Many people search for this term.

Posted on Jumat, 29 April 2011 | 0 komentar
According to my software, 3,750 people search for the term pool billiards equipment every month. This is kind of a strange sounding set of search words.

I typed it into Google search and there were 251,000 results. What I mean here is that you could click on a quarter of a million links from Google search related to the term.

There are hundreds of items which could be classified as pool billiards equipment. For me the word equipment sounds like larger items such as pool tables and billiard cues. The search results however bring up everything from hand and billiards chalk to the mechanical bridge.

When I look for my billiard supplies on line that is the term that I type into the search engine. (billiard supplies) Most times however I will type the individual item which I am looking for. When looking for a cue, I simply type in pool cue or billiards cue. If I am looking for a particular brand I will type the name in as well. (JOSS, Viking, Balabushka etc.)

The Internet has truly changed the way that I shop for and purchase billiard accessories. I was talking with a friend that owns a billiards store and he said it has put a big decrease on his in store sales as well.

Doesn’t it just make sense to search for and purchase your billiard items on line?

You can find exactly what you are looking for most of the time and you don’t have to leave your house to find it. You also have a wide variety of choices on where you buy. With a few searches and a little reading you can be sure to get the best prices available.

Next time you are looking for some form of pool billiards equipment, give the search engines a try and see what comes up. I’ll bet you will be pleased with the large amount of information and product lines you will find.

If you need help or advice when purchasing your pool and billiards equipment just send me a note or question.

Choosing The Right Knife For Your Outdoor Sport

Posted on Kamis, 28 April 2011 | 0 komentar
There are many different types of knives available, and as with many other tools, if you don't have the right one, it's likely to cause problems. Here are a few tips for choosing the right knife for your outdoor sport.

Most hunting knives are designed for skinning. If you want your knife to be good for skinning, the main thing you should pay attention to is the blade shape. You want a rounded or drop point so that when you are “ripping” the skin, the point of your knife will not dig into the meat.

Also, you'll probably want a fixed blade knife, as folding blades have to many crevices to trap blood and mess in.

Choosing a knife for camping can be tough, because you need a versatile knife. For this reason, you'll often find that a swiss army knife or multi tool may fill your needs best. Also, you may want to add a saw, hatchet, or machete to your pack before you leave, for tougher cutting jobs.

You should probably get a fillet knife for fishing. A fillet knife is well designed for cleaning fish, and it can also cut fishing line well, which is the other main task for a fishing knife. If you plan on fishing in salt water, be sure your knife is designed to withstand the corrosion of saltwater.

Trappers will generally want a a skinning knife, much like a hunting knife. Tougher tasks are normally done with an axe, so a second knife isn't normally necessary.

A boaters main need for a knife is cutting line. You'll need a sharp knife, that is easily accesible and quickly deployed, in case you need to cut a line in a hurry. Be sure that the knife will stand up to wet conditions, too.

Tent Choices

Posted on Rabu, 27 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Your choice of tent has a direct effect on your camping vacation. It will definitely make it or break it. Do your homework before you buy a tent so you won't be disappointed.

First you must decide what type of camping you are going to be doing. Are you going to be back packing or are you doing car camping? Car camping is where you pull your car up to a base camp site.

If you are backpacking it goes without saying that you'll want as lightweight a tent as you can find and also one that will withstand expected weather conditions. You may want to look into a warm weather tent or single wall tent if you're camping in summer weather conditions. If you decide you want the comfort of a larger tent, and if you need a 3-season or 4-season tent each backpacker can carry some of the tents components to lighten the load for each.

If you are car camping then the weight of the tent is not a problem for you. Most families do car camping. The ACA or American Camping Association and KOA or Kampgrounds of America have thousands of camp sites all over the country. You can check their online web sites for information. These sites generally are tree shaded with an area for a grill to be set up. Most have facilities within easy walking distance such as a bathroom, shower, pool and even sometimes light food restaurants.

What you will always want to keep in mind, no matter what type of camping you do is what type of weather you will be camping in.

As mentioned above there are 3-season and 4-season tents. 4-season tents are heavier than 3-season. They are made to withstand heavier winds and rain and the weight of snow on them. Generally if you camp between May and September a 3-season tent will suit your needs.

Climbing And Fear

Posted on Senin, 25 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Climbing is no different from any other activity to the extent that fear can be a huge barrier or, if used properly, a significant ledge upon which we can launch our favorite outdoor activity.

Fear can play a significant part in our everyday lives. Fear on the job, as a spouse or parent, or even driving can hold us back and prevent us from achieving our goals. Likewise, fear of climbing and everything it brings with it, can hold us back.

Just as preparation and training of your body is essential to be a safe and successful climber, so to must you prepare your mind. Strength and balance are good and useful, but even more important is an accurate understanding of the challenges and dangers. Only then will you be able to deal with them. Like life itself, if we know and understand our fears we are then able to overcome them and go on to greater heights and challenges.

How do you deal with the fear? While the sport does involve equipment and support from fellow climbers, it still is just one person at a time in contact with the rock. And, unless you can deal with and understand that, you are setting yourself up for great disappointment.

Understand that with rock climbing you must get into your subconscious fears that lie deep within us all. If you do that and work through the inner issues in your mind, you're set to enjoy this wonderful, inspiring sport.

Business experts have shown that fear of failure can be a great motivator to achieve heights that many never imagined possible. Understanding your fears, whether in rock climbing or business or relationships, can push you to greater and greater heights.

Now, go climb that rock!

Log Cabin Plans - Bringing Out The Bear In You

Posted on Minggu, 24 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Log cabins are generally low-maintenance houses since they are located in far out places and it is obviously not easy to get maintenance staff or equipment there. Log cabin plans tell the whole story. Most of the building material including the floor textures used in a log cabin requires very basic maintenance and it looks as good as new. The exterior of a log cabin has to face the nature’s wrath and thus is very simple to maintain.

However, some people might like to keep the interiors of the log cabin in a very good condition and might use professional maintenance and restoration services. These services provide detailed maintenance services for the log cabin and do not come cheap. Some of the steps of maintenance for a log cabin include staining of the interior and exterior wood, chinking repair and replacement, borate treatment to safeguard against pests, stay dry, chemical strip and cob blasting. Deck cleaning and sealing are also important since that is where most of the time of the log cabin residents is spent.

Log cabin plans should include inspection of the entire log cabin along with finishing of rough edges is part of the maintenance procedure. If you are a log cabin owner and rent it out on frequent occasions to holiday-makers then good maintenance will go a long way to fetch you an attractive rental income. Apart from that, the overall value of log cabins tends to be higher if they are well maintained and clean. A quick search online will provide you with details of a number of agencies who deal in maintenance services for log cabins. It is advisable that you narrow down your selection to a few companies in the region where your log cabin is situated and take comparative quotes for them for the maintenance requirement and then make a decision.

Items to Bring to a Football Game

Posted on Sabtu, 23 April 2011 | 0 komentar
There is arguably nothing better than attending an NFL football game and experiencing all of the excitement surrounding this sporting event in person. For those who are unsure as to what to bring to the game, there are a few necessary items which all fans and spectators should not be without.

Proper Attire

First and foremost, one who attends an NFL football game should wear the appropriate attire to ensure that their experience is a pleasurable one. Fans should wear comfortable clothing that is in keeping with the climate and weather. For example, if one is going to an NFL football game in the North, they should wear warm clothing and make it waterproof if snow or rain is a factor and the stadium is outdoors. On the other hand, one who goes to a Miami Dolphins game should dress comfortably in clothing which they will stay cool wearing.

Tailgating Items

Tailgating is a great pastime to take advantage of when going to an NFL game. This entails gathering in the stadium parking lot, chatting with other fans and eating some great tailgating food. One who is going to tailgate prior to the game should bring a cooler, food, beverages and any items necessary to cook their food. Many stadiums allow individuals to use portable grills in the parking lots which makes tailgating that much better.

Cash for Souvenirs and Food Inside the Stadium

Lastly, an individual who is going to an NFL game should make sure that they have enough cash on hand to buy certain items during the game. Items such as food, drinks and souvenirs are available for purchase inside football stadiums and fans should be sure to have cash handy to buy these items as many concessions do not take credit cards.

Finally, A Cricket Equipment Review Site Worth Talking About

Posted on Jumat, 22 April 2011 | 0 komentar
With the continued growth of the number websites on the internet in the last few years it’s not surprising that a lot of these don’t meet the demands of the users as webmasters and business owners seek to make easy money.

For example there are a number of cricket review sites on the internet which appear to be ‘spam’ sites with nothing more than ‘sponsored listings’ and no reviews. This is just one problem experienced by many cricket players searching the internet for cricket equipment reviews.

There are a lot of review websites out there on the internet but very few of them focus specifically on cricket equipment, therefore they lack detail and often have very few reviews which leaves users engaged in a perpetual search for the information they want and need.

However many webmasters and online business owners are finally waking up to the fact that website visitors want high quality content and not just a bunch of junk links. For example the release of has been met with praise and relief as it provides a place for all cricketers to congregate and to read and post reviews without having to waste time trawling many different websites.

The site allows users to register and suggest different types of cricket equipment for review under eight different categories, as well as post their own reviews of the cricket equipment which is already listed on the website. This is exactly what many of website users and especially cricketers have been waiting for and need, as it allows cricketers to read reviews of new and old products alike and make informed decisions before making a purchase.

Thus the onus is now on the business owners to make the extra effort and change their focus back to the user and not on making a fast buck.

When Was The Last Time You Warmed Up Your Lungs Before You Went On A Run?

Posted on Kamis, 21 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Have you ever noticed people getting ready for any sporting event, to get the best performance from their bodies they always warm it up first to get the blood flowing.

But what about the lungs? Its all good and well getting your body ready for a good workout but if the supply of oxygen to the muscles is poor because of bad breathing habits its easy to see you’re not going to get the best from them.

Here are some tips to start you on the right path.

• Make sure you get in the habit of setting aside some extra time to do a little breathing exercise to prepare your lungs for the job ahead. It won’t take as long as your stretching exercises but its just as important if not more. For the first 5-10 minutes do a little amount of walking as you’re doing this focus on your breathing.

Start to relax your belly on the inhale this allows your diaphragm to go down into its fullest position and thus fill your lungs to fill to a greater capacity. Then on the exhale retract your belly back in towards your spine thus helping the diaphragm to fully contract and empty the lungs better. (you want to get as much of that stale air out as possible before you breathe in again!) It may take a little while to get use to doing this but stick with it and remember how much you’re muscles are going to thank you for this added oxygen flow.

• When you’re out on your run try to breathe for as long as possible through your nose, this filters unwanted debris out of your air ways and helps to warm the air in the nasal cavity before it enters your lungs (especially important on those cold mornings.)

These new breathing techniques may be hard at first to get used to but your body will adapt over time. You may even notice a difference in your running times,.. you might not be setting world record times but hey who knows what might happen??

Recreational Activities Can Be A Good Source In Reducing Your Stresses

Posted on Rabu, 20 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Regardless how tough your fears, anxieties, and stresses may be, taking advantage of certain recreational activities can be a great source in managing your fears and stresses. There are many ways in which taking advantage of recreational sports and activities can help you relieve some of your stresses.

The first step is to get your doctor’s permission in performing any activities. You do not want to over extend yourself. Explain to your doctor what kinds of activities you will perform and have him set up a schedule where you will not hurt yourself.

Performing recreation activities is a good source to meet people and make new friends. Making friends and socializing with other people is important in dealing with your stresses and anxieties. Hanging out with people you like is a good way to stop focusing on your current fears and anxieties.

Recreational activities can improve your health which will also help you to manage your stresses. Use your energy on a recreational event such as walking instead of worrying about your problems. A slow walk will make you feel better, get you relaxed and decrease your stress levels.

Participating in a recreational activity can give you a new perspective in dealing with your fears and worries. When you are upset, you tend to focus on your worries and anxieties. Doing something that you like to do will give you a “time out” in your worrying. Once you are done performing your activity, you will look differently at your worrisome problem than if you didn’t do anything at all.

The more fun you have, the more relaxed you will be. Your fears and anxieties are real but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun doing something you like. Remember: Performing any kind of recreational activity can go a long way in managing your stresses and anxieties, but it is not a substitute for the guidance of a professional.

Psp Blender: Fastest Download Site In The West?

Posted on Selasa, 19 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Ok, im going to take a break from my usual rant about Internet marketing and instead, indulge in one of my passions... PSP! Below ive written a personal review on my favourite psp download site PSP Blender!

What is PSP Blender:

PSP Blender promises to provide you access to the largest PSP games and movies databases network on the planet. About 20 million files no less. Members are given access to all of the tools needed to locate and download any of PSP Blenders files. Does PSP Blender keep its promises? Lets find out shall we....?

So, Does PSP Blender Work?

One thing that worried me before trying PSP Blender was the download times. I mean, the files that I want are full-length films and complex games...these aren’t small files! I needn’t have worried! The download times on my standard broadband connection were more than even. The layout of the site can also be a concern. It doesn’t matter how many millions of files a site has to offer if you can't actually navigate your way through them to get to what you are searching for. Once again the worry was unfounded. The layout was clear and sensible and I had no problems getting to where I wanted to be. I almost forgot to touch upon the sheer vastness of the downloads on offer. It would take you a lifetime to download all the files that PSP Blender has on its database. Quite astonishing!

Ok, So It Works......But At What price?

Less than $40 for a lifetime membership!!!. I really don't think you can truthfully disagree with me when I say "that my friend is a bargain!". I have tried various other sites charging more for considerably less!

In Conclusion

If you’re on the lookout for a PSP download site, or maybe your not satisfied with your current choice, then I suggest you check PSP Blender out. I know from personal experience that you wont be disappointed.

Thanks For Reading,
Caiden Felix

Martingale Or Antimartingale. How To Bet Playing Roulette

Posted on Senin, 18 April 2011 | 0 komentar
There are many betting strategies in gambling. There are specific betting strategies for each game casino game. Martingale and Anti’Martingale are well known and popular.

Martingale betting system

If you use Martingale system, you double your bets every time you lose. If you win, you return to initial bet amount. For example, you place 1 coin and lose. Next you place 2 coins and lose. You place 4 coins and win. You win 1 additional coin (8-7).

Many roulette players love this betting strategy. But there are some problems using this strategy. First, you must have big, very big bankroll to use Martingale strategy. You must have 63 coins in bankroll for 5 spins long losing series, and 127 coins for 6 spins long losing series.

Second, you must find roulette table with wide bet size limits range.

If you use Martingale betting system, you increase risk then you lose. This is the way to losing all your money!

AntiMartingale betting system

Now you double your bets then you win. If you lose, you place initial bet amount. For example, you bet 1 coin and win. Next you bet 2 coins. And so on. Limit size of largest bet amount. If you start from 1 coin, it may be 4 or 8 coins. Then you rich this limit return to initial bet size.

This system is much better than Martingale system. There is no bankroll size limitation. And casino limits don’t disturb you.

Using AntiMartingale betting system you increase risk then you win. Many professional gambling players use this betting strategy.

Remember. You can use Martingale or Anti’Martingale system. But do not play under emotions influence. Control yourself. If you have bad day, stop playing. Go to the bar or go home.

If you can’t stop, you need professional help. You become compulsive gambler.

Gambling is entertainment. Roulette is just a game. Enjoy youself, and you become lucky guy.

India wins over England in fifth one-day international

Posted on Minggu, 17 April 2011 | 0 komentar
India has won the fifth one-day international cricket match against England in Leeds. India beats England by 38 runs in a rainy one-day cricket international to uphold the chance of winning the seven-match series. England gets over at 242-8 after 38 overs, short of its target under the Duckworth-Lewis method for deciding matches curtailed by adverse weather. Earlier, India cracked 324-6 from 50 overs.

England was at first trying to chase 325 to win, but lost three wickets unfortunately for seven runs in 13 balls as it baggy to 104 for four. Soon after the rain stopped play midway through the 17th over, England was chasing a revised target of 311 in 45 overs. But rain at last forced to end up the match. Rain Sunday forced play to be scored by using the Duckworth/Lewis method. India ended up a 38-run winner to lessen England's lead in the seven-match series to 3-2.

At a point, England was actually well short of the Duckworth / Lewis par score on 242 for eight off 39 overs. India's 324 for six marked its third top one-day international total against England. India now trails 3-2 and could a well claim the series if it wins the left over two matches, at the Oval on Sept. 5 and Lord's three days later. It won the Test series 1-0 last month for its first conquest on English soil ever since 1986. All the visitor's batsmen ransacked runs against an England hit missing injured bowlers Andrew Flintoff and as well with Chris Tremlett. Yuvraj Singh top-scored with 72 from 57 balls.

Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Gautam Gambhir too hit half-centuries, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Captain Rahul Dravid assisted well to uphold the run rate by each scoring 24 from 17 balls. Alastair Cook was sent away in the third over of England's reply, before Matt Prior and Ian Bell added 90 for the second wicket. Prior made 46 runs and Bell strike 44. Prior and Bell were both caught by India’s wicket keeper Dhoni off the bowling of Ganguly, with Kevin Pietersen falling in the superseding over without getting a run. Paul Collingwood finished unbeaten at 91 from 71 balls.

Sort The Tickets Out FIFA

Posted on Sabtu, 16 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Once again loyal fans from around the world descend on a major football tournament to support and encourage their teams to glory.

Year on year they turn up in their thousands only for the majority of them to return home early and disappointed following defeat and another broken dream.

So why do the footballing authorities continue to give priority to corporations and members of the public with no vested interest in either team?

The inevitable result is thousands of true supporters are driven to the black market, lining the pockets of those immoral enough to prey on the fans.

The touts must be laughing every time England qualify for a major tournament knowing thousands upon thousands of genuine fans will be unable to get tickets through official channels.

England consistently take more supporters than any other nation and are ritually fleeced time and again.

Tickets change hands for as much as £2000 a time when greedy touts know the desperation faced by many.

But it’s not just England fans that suffer. Many nations take a large following to tournaments and the touts just love it.

When each team gets allocated just 4,500 tickets in a 40,000 capacity stadium the figures just don’t add up.

In a recent match involving Mexico a whole block of seating was vacated during half time. Corporate types with little interest in the result but wishing to be seen at the right places made their early exit.

Meanwhile the true fans are locked outside watching their heroes on giant screens and paying extortionate prices for food and drink.

And it’s not just football. Every summer brings the Wimbledon tennis championships to London and it’s the same old story.

The toffs eat their strawberries and cream and sip expensive champagne while the real fans sit on Henman Hill willing their heroes to victory.

It’s the genuine fans who fund the sports and whom the authorities should treat with a little more consideration.

Fly The Unfriendly Skies Of United

Posted on Jumat, 15 April 2011 | 0 komentar
United Airlines (UAL) recently announced that it will be charging customers twenty-five dollars for their second checked bag. They will start this beginning on 5 may 2008.

Right now you can check two bags, each weighing fifty pounds for free. Anything more and you have to pay extra depending on the weight.

You are also allowed one, maybe two, carry-on bags. This also depends on the size, weight, and airline.

This additional tariff will not affect Mileage Plus or Star Alliance customers. And, from what I have read, this only affects domestic flights. I have not read anything about overseas flights.

Supposedly, this will discourage passengers from bringing an additional bag, making the plane lighter. Therefore, the plane will burn less fuel saving the airlines money and keeping fares from rising.

As a frequent traveler, I can personally say that I will do my very best to avoid flying on United. If I do have to fly UAL, I will scream, kick and bite before I pay an extra twenty-five dollars for a bag.

I think if all travelers shout loud enough, the airline will be forced to stop this silliness. Then, they would be forced to raise air fares, which would hopefully make you look for another airline.

First, the airlines took away your in-flight meal. Now, we have the additional luggage tax. What is next?

Some may say that getting rid of the airline food is a good thing. But charging five bucks for a measly snack is ridiculous.

I work for the US government and we are required to fly on American carriers. I understand the rule and the reasoning behind it, but most of my flights are to Asia and Asian carriers have far better service, prices and schedules than American carriers.

So, if I am forced to fly American and get stuck on United, I will do everything in my power to switch to one of the other carriers that doesn’t charge this ridiculous fee.

We need to band together and refuse to pay this fee. Otherwise, the airlines will start charging for pillows, blankets, aisle seats, window seats, and who knows what else.

If you have a choice between United and any other airline, please choose the other carrier.

Setting The Date Of Your Party

Posted on Kamis, 14 April 2011 | 0 komentar
One of the most important first tasks you have planning your party is setting the date. Setting the best possible date sounds easier than it is. Before you make your decision, there are many events and other important dates to consider. Your party is only as good as the people you invite, so you need to make sure you come up with a date that works for most of them.

You have to invite your guest early enough to make sure they have enough time to prepare. Make sure you invite people at least three or four weeks prior to the party. If you call somebody a day before the party, they may not be able to attend due to other engagements. Also, inviting people to a party is considered rude. Someone invited the last minute may think, you invited him or her so late to avoid having him or her at the party.

You should give your guest enough time, and you should give yourself enough time too. You need to make sure you have time to prepare. Because there are so many components to plan a great party, be sure to give yourself enough time. Before setting the date for your party, you should consider your friends and family members’ schedules. Birthdays, graduations, vacations, and other events may prevent people important to you attend your party.

It is best not to schedule your party on a Holiday, unless your party is related to the Holiday itself. It makes sense to schedule a big barbeque party for the 4th of July. But if you think people you plan to invite to the party will be out of town on your chosen date, you should reconsider the date of the party.

The food is an essential part of any party, so carefully consider it. Try to arrange more than one kind of food, so your guest will have more than one option. Remember, what you like may not be equally popular with your guest. It doesn’t hurt to ask a few of the invited guest to see what kind of food they like.

Top 3 Reasons Why you should stop cooking with propane

Top 3 Reasons Why you should stop cooking with propane

by Jonathan F. Pratt

Why should you keep buying bulky and dangerous propane cylinders for your camping trips when free fuel from mother nature herself is all around you?

You should stop cooking with propane for your camping trips because:

#1 Propane is expensive

#2 Propane cylinders are bulky to carry

#3 Propane is potentially dangerous and explosive

Usually when you go camping, there is an abundance of free fuel you can use for cooking: including branches, twigs, and pine cones. The problem is, in order to use mother natures cooking fuel, you usually have to go through the hassle of finding kindling, then collecting an adequete amount of branches, logs, etc... Next, you would have to break them down to size and set up your pile of wood in a properly cleared space, safe to build a fire. Finally, you have to patiently light the fire and nurse it until it is going strong enough; this assumes you have the right equipment to hold a pot or pan over the fire to begin with.

There has to be a better way!

The good news is: There IS a better way.

Consider The New WoodGas Camp Stove by iENERGY.

Why use the WoodGas camp stove?

The WoodGas stove is the cleanest burning portable camp stove available. The stove is easy to light with a special starter gel and with just a handful of twigs and other forest and tree debris you can pick up from the ground in about a minute will keep you cooking for up to 30 minutes. You will be surprised at just how smokeless and clean burning the Woodgas stove is. The flame is safely contained in the stove until a load of fuel is consumed in 30 minutes or less, adding fuel is easy for longer cooking sessions.

With the WoodGas camp stove you can forget both the hassles and expense of buying expensive and dangerous propane or all the work involved in building an open pit fire for cooking. The WoodGas stove is also excellent for emergency preparedness.

The WoodGas camp stove is a safe, light, compact, clean burning and environmentally friendly alternative to using propane camp stoves.:

Choosing The Right Shoes For Skateboarding

Posted on Selasa, 12 April 2011 | 0 komentar
One of the most popular of the extreme sports has to be skateboarding. Out of all the more extreme sports it has to be the one that has lasted the longest over the years that have passed so far.

One of the coolest things about skateboarding is that is requires so little to get started. With other sports, you have to gear up with all kinds of equipment but with skating all you need is a skateboard. Of course, you should also have safety gear like a helmet and pads. This sport can be extremely dangerous so good safety equipment is a must as well.

One last important thing to have when you decide to get into this sport has to be the shoes. You will definitely want to pick some with good foot protection and ankle support. You will also want to make sure they fit properly as well because a shoe that does not fit right can cause its own set of problems. Shoes that do not fit properly can cause issues like blisters and foot sores that will make skating very uncomfortable and painful.

When you are trying on a new pair of skate shoes they should be comfortable because you will want to be wearing them for long periods of time. They should also be able to take a lot of abuse during a skater's use. One more thing is that they need to have good treads that grip well to the board.

Another part of the skate shoe that you should look at is the show laces. It's important to have heavy duty type show laces due to the amount of abuse they can take during the various skating tricks. Regular shoe laces do not stand a chance to the amount of use that they get and it would be a horrible thing to be in the middle of a good skate session and you have to quit for the day because of a pair of broken shoe laces.

The tread is something that is needed to keep the feet on the board. You don't want to be slipping around while trying to perform the raddest trick ever.

It is true that sometimes these types of skate shoes can become quite expensive and cost a lot of money, but they can be just important as the board itself. Get yourself a good pair and they will last you through the entire season this year.

Tent Size Considerations

Posted on Senin, 11 April 2011 | 0 komentar
The size of the tent you choose is a very important consideration.

In prior articles we discussed how to pick a tent based on what weather conditions you are planning to camp in. Now we will discuss how to choose the correct size.

The first rule of thumb is never to buy a tent that you can't get into, walk around in, lie down in and stand up in. In other words find a camping store where the tents are set up.

Now consider how many adults and children will be sleeping in the tent. Will you be using sleeping bags and/or air mattresses? How much gear are you planning to take and stow in the tent? When you visit the store take your sleeping bag with you, or borrow one from the store. Lay it out on the floor in the tent. Now, consider three or four more, depending on the size of your group. How much room is left?

Most seasoned campers will tell you to take the manufacturers recommended number of people a tent will accommodate and divide it by two. If a manufacturer says a tent will accommodate 4 people, it's really 2. Most two men pup tents are not comfortable for two large adults and are definitely not comfortable for two adults and their gear. Also remember if it rains all your gear will need to go into the tent along with you.

A small tent where there is no head room, such as a pup tent may be fine for some campers, but definitely not those that camp with children.

If you are going to have children camping with you another consideration is that in case of inclement weather you may have your children in your tent longer than you expected. This can definitely lead to some over crowding and short fuses. When you go out to look at tents remember this rule - at least 30 square feet per person is what you want to look for, perhaps even more if you have children. That way they can have a quiet corner to entertain themselves with board games in case of inclement weather.

Vintage and Historic Baseball Memorabilia

Posted on Minggu, 10 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Baseball gloves are available in almost every size, color and material known to man. Traditional gloves are made from leather or faux-leather and more recently from buffalo and kangaroo hides. No matter what the material, baseball gloves need to be broken in. Players find that by using various methods to break the glove in, they will get a better fit and therefore play a better game.

Different players will certainly have different methods and ways to show you how to break in a baseball glove. You can expect that for each method, another will be said to work better. Methods for breaking in a baseball glove can be viewed as a personal preference and will need to be tweaked for the individual. To summarize, there are two basic goals in breaking in a glove: to soften the glove and to create a pocket. The best method for breaking in a glove, however, is simply to use it as much as possible.

You can use a multitude of methods to soften the leather. If you want to learn how to break in a baseball glove, this is the best way to start. You can use shaving cream, petroleum jelly, saddle soap or a leather softener made for baseball gloves. Most baseball glove manufacturers offer a leather softener for their products. These usually work very well but some players have their own tried-and-true methods. Experts suggest that you be very conservative in your use of creams or jellies; more is certainly not better in the case of softening leather.

The best method by far for creating a pocket is simply using the glove. The more wear and play time your glove has seen, a better pocket will form. There are, however, other methods to speed up this process and make your glove more comfortable quicker. The most popular method in creating a pocket is to put a baseball inside the glove and then tie it up with string. You can even find products that will help the baseball glove stay closed to form the pocket. By using this method, along with a lot of playing, you will find that a pocket has formed inside the glove before you know it.

Quick Camping Checklist

Posted on Sabtu, 09 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Whether you're a first time camper, or an experienced wilderness explorer, it is helpful to have a basic checklist of essential gear. Of course, don't forget that you may need other equipment, based on the specifics of your trip.

Tent or shelter – Most people will want to take a tent, but you can also use a tarp or other open shelter to keep the rain and dew off of you. If it will be cold, though, you'll probably be thankful for the extra protection a tent offers. Don't forget to bring a fly or tarp to keep rain out of your tent.

Groundcloth – Bring a tarp or plastic keep moisture from seeping up through the tent floor, unless your tent has a built in groundcloth.

Sleeping Bag – Check that your sleeping bag is rated appropriately for the weather you are going camping in. You don't want to take a -30 rated sleeping bag on a summer camping trip, or vice versa.

Stove – Unless you plan to cook over a campfire, you'll need a camping stove and fuel. Of course, whether you use a stove or a fire, you'll need matches or a lighter.

Food – You don't want to be without that!

Water – Bring plenty of water. In some cases you'll need to bring enough to extinguish your campfire.

Apparel – You'll want a coat or raincoat to protect yourself from the elements, depending on the weather. A hat is another essential. Other than that, the main rule of thumb is that it's better to wear layers of clothing, so you can easily adjust for the temperature.

Pack – If you're hiking in to your camping spot, you'll need a pack large enough to hold all of your gear. Otherwise, you'll just need a day pack or fanny pack for day excursions.

Basic gear – You should at least bring:
Knife or Multi-tool
Saw or axe
Compass and map
First aid kit
Snake bite kit

Keep in mind that this list is just a basic list – you'll find other items that you need as you start camping.

Keeping Down unwanted pests at your barbecue

Posted on Jumat, 08 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Spring, Summer and even Autumn can be a wonderful time for a barbecue. Your family and friends can enjoy getting together in your backyard, eating a delicious meal prepared on your grill, take a swim in your pool or just hang around and chat. However, there is one thing that can bring your barbecue to a grinding halt and have your guests running to their cars in no time – The Mosquito.

How many times have you been enjoying the evening sitting outside at a barbecue when you find yourself slapping your arms several times in just a few minutes? This makes trying to enjoy conversations or eating your hamburger a terrible experience. These annoying mosquitoes, wasps, bees, and any other flying insect love to interrupt your fun and take away all the enjoyment you were having.

You could purchase those insect sprays and use them. But, who really wants to eat their food once they smell those stinky sprays, not to mention just how harmful they can be in you accidentally inhale the fumes. You could run around and try to swat the bugs with a regular flyswatter and hope you hit your target and kill it with one swat or you could purchase an easy to use, new, innovative, fly zapper.

This unique fly zapper was fashioned after the design of a regular fly swatter only with a twist. It is handheld, shaped like a tennis racket and will kill any insect as soon as it touches the net of the fly zapper by using an electric current. There will not even be a bug left to pick up and remove!

You may be concerned about any of the children getting their little hands of the fly zapper, but it is completely safe. Yes, you should use caution and do not let anyone touch the net once you have activated the zapper because they will receive a shock, however, both buttons on the handle must be depressed before the zapper will activate.

Now you will be able to enjoy any picnic or barbeque with your new fly zapper around. Be sure to have one in your home, in the garage, on the patio, and in your car, this way you will have protection from all those annoying flying insects no matter where you go. It is time to enjoy your barbecue and keep your guests bug free so the party will be a hit.

The Heisman Trophy Award

Posted on Kamis, 07 April 2011 | 0 komentar
It’s college football’s most prestigious individual achievement award. It’s highly publicized, ceremoniously presented, and football fans everywhere anticipate it, sometimes debate the outcome, always revere it’s tradition. But, what do we actually know about it?

First bestowed in 1935 by the Downtown Athletic Club of New York City, the trophy wasn’t given it’s name until the following year in memory of club member, award founder, college football player, coach, and game rules originator, John W. Heisman. That takes care of the history.

The electoral process assures a vote free of regional bias. The country is divided into six regions with a media member of note in charge of each. It is the responsibility of each rep to select a group of knowledgeable voters from the football reporting media in each.
Presently, 941 votes are cast. There’s the process.

There have been 71 Heismans awarded. The individuality we covet in this team game, is graphically depicted in the positions of the winner. Running backs have 41 trophies and 23 went to quarter backs. Confirms what’s considered essential to winning. In 1997, Charles Woodsen of Michigan became the only defensive player to win the award.

What about the winners? For too many, after finishing college, the cheering stopped.
Eric Crouch (2001) hasn’t played in the NFL, is hoping to catch on in the Canadian League. Josh White (2003) never played a game after college. The only two time winner Archie Griffin (1974 1975) hung on through several dismal seasons with the Bengals. Gino Torretta (1992) got into 2 NFL games over 4 years. Gary Beban (1967) rode the bench for 2 NFL seasons. Terry Baker (1962) didn’t stick with the Rams and went to the Canadian League. Andre Ware (1989) signed a big contract then sat on the bench for 4 seasons before retiring. Rashaan Salaam (1994) had a short, uneventful career marred by substance abuse suspensions. Joe Bellino (1960) carried the 30 times over 3 seasons before calling it quits. Five of the first 15 winners chose other careers.
O.J. Simpson (1968) never understood what it meant.

Girls Don’t Abide By The Rules

Are you planning a beach wrestling fundraiser for your club? Beach wrestling events are a fun way to raise money for your club or organization. When making up the rules for your events, particularly the mixed events, you should be aware that once the girls get started they operate strictly on an “anything goes” approach.

A well planned beach wrestling event can be both a successful fund raiser and load of fun. There are many variations that can be used – wrestling in the sand, in the water, tag teams mixed events, pillow fighting, wrestling on a raft in the water, or using a pushing style event in a rubber dinghy. The variations are numerous and these are only limited by your imagination.

Beach wrestling is now included as an Olympic event so for those interested in a more serious approach to this sport Long Beach New York was the site for the East Coast championships and the Oregon Beach Wrestling Division is a good place to start for the west coast. To find a club in California go to A quick search on Google will find a club in your area.

The World Beach Wrestling Championships will be held in Turkey this year in October 2006. Beach wrestling in Africa and the Middle East have long been a favorite sporting events so the venue promises some exciting contests.

March 2006 was the closing date for clubs to host this years 2006 USA Beach Wrestling Chanpionships and to date the winning venue has not been announced for the championships to be held in August 18 -19 2006.

If you often go to a wrestling club to keep fit try some sun and surf in the summer as this sport is really taking off.

If you just want to keep fit but are not interested in formal wrestling bouts start your own group and set your own rules, even have mixed bouts for a fun easy way to keep fit in the summer. But do remember if you include the girls don’t get too carried way with rules because they probably wont remember them and if they do well rules were made to be broken.

Saints Release Dwight Smith

Posted on Selasa, 05 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Dwight Smith was released by the New Orleans Saints last Thursday and he will probably start with another team by the end of this week: the Minnesota Vikings. Apparently he has been meeting with this team’s coaches and officials since last Monday.

Minnesota already has a Pro Bowl free safety: Darren Sharper, who is a nine-year veteran and has registered nine interceptions in 2005, but the team seems prepared to make accommodations to fit Smith into the lineup. If Smith is acquired, Sharper might move to strong safety in the cover two scheme, allowing him to play closer to the line of scrimmage on occasion.

Adding the five year veteran to the Vikings draft would provide Minnesota with a pair of safeties in the scheme that Tomlin established in the off-season, and more support to the standout cornerbacks Antoine Winfield and Fred Smoot.

The Vikings have signed the former Tennessee Titans starting strong safety Tank Williams as an unrestricted free agent and he and the four-year veteran Willie Offord appeared to be ready to compete for the starting job there. Acquiring Smith might change that.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus said that, until a deal is not confirmed, all of the teams that are seriously pursuing Dwight Smith will be in camp by the end of this week. Smith is the kind of safety that many teams want, an interior defender with cornerback-level coverage skills. As a matter of fact, Smith started his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a standout nickel cornerback and then he was moved to safety in 2003.

Dwight Smith who is 27 years old, supplies a defense with fantastic flexibility because of his hybrid skills and his ability to move out into the slot and cover wide receivers.

Smith has appeared in 78 games and started 49 of them during his career. He has 306 tackles, one sack, 14 interceptions, 45 passes defended, seven forced fumbles and two recoveries. In Super Bowl XXXVII when Tampa Bay won over the Oakland Raiders, Smith returned two interceptions for touchdowns.

Currently playing in the position of running back for the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs, Johnson is the son of a defensive line coach at Penn State University. He was selected during the 2003 NFL Draft and is simply known as ‘LJ’ by teammates and fans.

As is the case with many of today’s NFL players, Larry Johnson began showing an interest in football at an early age. With his participation beginning at State College Area High School in Pennsylvania, Johnson rushed for 2,159 yards. In 2002, Johnson continued his football career as he rushed more than 2,000 yards at Penn State. Following this impressive season, Larry Johnson was recognized with the Doak Walker Award, the Maxwell Award and the Walter Camp Award. Upon his college graduation in 2002, Johnson earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Integrative Arts.

The year following graduation, Larry Johnson was selected in the NFL Draft and began his successful career with the Kansas City Chiefs. After only a few years with the team, Johnson has already garnered a lot of media and fan attention.

By the end of the 2005 NFL season, Larry Johnson had played nine consecutive games where he rushed for over 100 yards and had more than proved his running ability on the field. As a result, Larry Johnson was named the 2005 MVP for the Kansas City Chiefs and is thought to be a strong contender for the featured running back during Kansas City’s 2006 season. As the new season approaches, fans and opposing players will eagerly await to see how the team unfolds as Larry Johnson is once again poised to take the field. Will this be his year to start as the featured running back? Nobody knows for sure, but all eyes will be tuned in to find out.

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Buffalo Sabres

Posted on Sabtu, 02 April 2011 | 0 komentar
Carolina might not have started the playoffs with good rhythm but as the first round series got under way against Montreal they started playing really good. They still are and after that they knocked out the Devils in round two 4-1 in the series.

The Hurricanes have speed on all four of their lines and their defense is mobile and gets the puck up the ice quickly. Their power play, when it's on is one of the most dangerous in the NHL. However they need to avoid slow starts and start the games trailing because for them it’s very difficult to get back once they’re trailing earlier in the game.

Ron Brind'Amour is the heart and soul guy, he tends to come up big at key times. Eric Staal is the finisher who gets the puck in crunch time. Watch for Justin Williams as well. He was an impact player against Montreal.

Carolina has a very good regular season and playoffs so far; nothing would be better for them as winning the conference finals and get a shot to win the Stanley Cup as well.

Buffalo on the other hand left out the Flyers in the first round. A team that couldn’t deal with Buffalo’s speed and in the second round; Goalie Ryan Miller was a big difference against the Senators. But a gutsy overall effort that included three overtime wins was what brought Buffalo here.

The Sabres are very fast, quick and opportunistic on offense. Their defensive game was outstanding against a powerful Ottawa team and the Sabres are riding high from what was a major upset win last round.

But they have a few important players injured; Tim Connolly and Dmitri Kalinin are out but the Sabres have been talented enough to not let those injuries overcome their game and be where they are right now.

These Western conference finals will be all about the new era in the NHL. With two pioneer teams that are playing at the top of their game with very innovative types of playing this beautiful game.

Most major sportsbooks will have lines and props on these NHL Conference Finals. That will give a chance to all the sports betting fans to follow closely these games in order to make their wagers in the finals.

La novicia rebelde (The Sound of Music):
La clásica historia de la familia Van Trapp en Austria y la niñera, protagonizada por Julie Andrews en 1965, todavía sigue siendo entretenida ya tractiva para la educación de los niños. La trama, la música, las visuales y el mensaje son parte de la niñez de muchos de mi generación.

Del musical teatral protagonizado en cine por Renée Zellweger, Catherine Zeta-Jones y Richard Gere es otro de los recomendados. Su más reciente estreno en los 2000 es de una excelente actuación, baile y sonido que ha ganado un premio tras otro. Vale la pena!

Mouline Rouge:
Protagonizada por Nicole Kidman y Ewan McGregor , dirigida por Baz Luhrmann este increíble musical fue uno de los mas impactantes que vi. En 2001 Moulin Rouge logro traer a la pantalla grande, de la llegada de un humilde escritor ingles en 1900 a Paris, y su encuentro con una bailarina en Mouline Rouge.

Grease es un musical para adolescentes, de 1978 que todavía vale la pena mirar. John Travolta comienza su carrera de galán en la pantalla grande, junto con Olivia newton John hacen un dúo inolvidable. Sus canciones siguen siendo un éxito hoy en día, reproducidas en transe y house music.

Judy Garland en 1939, junto con sus tres amigos (el hombre de lata sin corazón, el espantapájaros sin cerebro y el León sin coraje) siguen el inolvidable camino amarillo para llegar al Mago de Oz. Excelente.

La Bella y La Bestia:
Un dibujo animado de Disney para adultos y niños que fue capaz de ganar los corazones de millones de personas en 1991. Un gran mensaje para no guiarse por las apariencias, lleno de magia y entretenimiento. Increíble sonido!
