I have been ironing my dress shirts for years. It was just something I had to learn how to do when I started to dress up for work. I iron five times a week; so I thought I had enough practice to be somewhat of a professional at it. However, I stumbled on this video, and I have to say, I no longer feel like a pro. The guy in this video is an ironing king.
May is a very busy month. It's National Photography Month, Grapefruit and Kiwi Month, National Bike Month and National Salsa Month--just to name a few. And, if you're a vegan or vegetarian, or someone who just likes to stay healthy, there is another "holiday" to add to the month of May. This month is National Salad Month.
May is not only a month to dust off the grill and start planting flowers, it's a month to get out there and take some photos. May is National Photography Month. Let me start out by saying that I'm a novice photographer with a few tricks I've learned along the way. I wouldn't consider myself a professional photographer. However, with that being said, I believe I have taken some pretty good photos over the years. So, in honor of National Photography Month, I would like to share with you a few of my favorite photos that I have taken. I hope you enjoy them. Have fun celebrating National Photography Month!
That's right. This week is a time to celebrate our national parks as part of National Park Week from April 20-28, 2013. Here's something that I learned while researching National Park Week--there are 401 national parks, according to the National Park Service website. That's pretty amazing. And, after doing a little bit more research, we have a national park right in our own backyard. Do you know where it is? I'll give you a hint: it's in Rome.
It's April. And, if you're a person who loves your pet, it's a very special month. The month of April is National Pet Month. It's a time to appreciate your four-legged friends and show your pet a little bit more kindness (or, extra treats). So, in honor of National Pet Month, I thought I would compile my favorite cute animal videos from the web. If you're looking for cuteness overload, you're in the right place.
On a cold, 36 degree, spring morning, my car reached a milestone, which usually only happens once in a car's lifetime. My car's mileage has reached 123,456. Not only am I happy that I caught the moment right when it happened (I had to pullover and take the picture), I'm extremely happy my Toyota has lasted so long.
Finding food in America that is 100 percent vegan can be a bit of a challenge. There's a lot of looking at labels to make sure there is no hidden dairy, meat, eggs or fish in the food. I've been a vegan for well over 5 years, so, I have become somewhat of an expert at finding food that is vegan. In some places around the world, people eat an almost fully vegetarian diet. And, it's this food from these places around the world that don't eat meat that tends to be my favorite.
If you don't like to get your friends and family gifts from big box stores, The Indie Garage Sale is the perfect place to shop. When I go, I find the coolest stuff. For example, at the last Indie Garage Sale (the Holiday 2012 sale), I bought a fork bracelet. Yes, a bracelet made from a fork! Who knew that even existed? There are tons of unique items at great prices at the annual Indie Garage Sale. So, if you're looking for that perfect, one-of-a-kind gift, you don't have to wait much longer for the Spring 2013 Indie Garage Sale--it's just a few weeks away.
I am a huge fan of farmers markets. I have been to many farmers markets stretching from Utica to Rochester, and everywhere in between. It's always a good day when there is time to stop at a farmers market. And, speaking of a good time to go to a farmers market--mark your calendars for Sunday, May 19 because that's when the Westmorland Summer Farmers Market begins, according to the market's Facebook page. In addition, the market will be at a new location this year.
The freezer...it's a wonderful invention, don't you think? You can keep food frozen for months and still be able to eat it as if you just bought it. I freeze everything from garlic cloves to fruit, to herbs and even flour. Every morning, I use a few frozen strawberries for my smoothie. So, it's safe to say that the freezer and frozen food has made our lives easier, right? Let's celebrate! All this month you can celebrate. The month of March is National Frozen Food Month.
Daylight Saving Time (3/10 at 2 a.m.) is fast approaching. And, in addition to changing your clocks, there is a "holiday" that coincides with Daylight Saving Time--it's Check Your Batteries Day, which happens on the second Sunday of March every year. No, it's not a day to remember to change the TV remote batteries (however, you can do that, too), it's a day to check to make sure those smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are working.
So, do you know how much gas is left in the tank when the low fuel light turns on? For those of us with older cars, we have to kind of guess how much longer we can drive before the car just stops from lack of gas. For those lucky people with a car that tells you how much you have left when the gas light comes on, you still might find this post interesting, especially if you are a passenger in an older-style car. If you're like me, when the gas light turns on, you tend to panic a little bit. However, now thanks to DefensiveDriving.com, you can panic a little less the next time the gas light turns on.
