When you get together with your group of guys, you probably aren’t thinking of the best health tips. Instead, you are probably thinking about the big game, the big snacks, and possibly a beer or four. Still, after the beer drinking contest you had during the first half, that bacon eating contest you had at halftime that you are still sweating grease out of your pores from, and after lighting up that tenth cigarette of the game, you may start wondering if you are living the healthiest lifestyle. Well, meat and beer are staples of any American bromance but you can live a bit healthier by switching from cigarettes to an electronic cigarette.
As Americans, we have been given the right to enjoy life to its fullest and to do the things that make us happy. For many, exercise and diet aren’t the way that they want to live. While dieting and exercise have been proven to improve the quality of life and keep you healthier longer, some people would rather eat happily than healthily. In that same vein, smokers feel that is their right to put whatever poisons they choose to put in their bodies by smoking cigarettes. While many would agree that it is their right, others would argue that your smoking is taking away their right to enjoy life by forcing second hand smoke onto them. By switching to an electronic cigarette, you can still enjoy your freedom to enjoy your nicotine without bothering others.
All the Nicotine but Less Poison
Electronic cigarettes are a great way to enjoy your nicotine without bugging people around you and they are a much healthier alternative to smoking. Even if the buddies that you invite over are all smokers, the wall of second hand smoke that is in the room with you guys is basically a wall of poison that no one should have to breath in. By switching to an electronic cigarette, you are getting the same feeling that you would get from inhaling a cigarette but without the poisons that come along with it. That means less poison in your body and less in the air around you.
You and your buddies are probably manly men who love to get together and do guy things. However, smoking cigarettes isn’t so much a “guy thing” these days as it is an outdated way to get your nicotine fix. By switching to an electronic cigarette, you may inspire your friends to also make the switch and soon enough, you guys will all be a bit healthier. Who Knows? Maybe you can finally start having that bacon eating contest every quarter of the game, just like you always dreamed.
When it comes to poker, there is a science to placing your bets. You must study your opponent and learn the game inside and out. However, once you have become skilled in this science, placing a bet seems less and less like gambling and more and more like a business decision. Well, horse racing is a bit different. You can study your horse and the sport inside and out, but you can never account for those surprises on the track that can leave you disappointed and your wallet empty.
Just like any other event that you are able to place wagers on, horse racing requires a level of commitment that is tough to stick to. It isn’t as simple as tuning into the local sports station and checking Derby betting odds. In fact, if you are truly intent on becoming skilled in the art of wagering, you need to absorb as much information on the sport as you can, from any outlet possible. If you have a race track in your area, visit it often and get to know the sport, before placing that first bet. Use websites like Twinspires to help sharpen your skills. Keep in mind, however, that not even the most qualified expert in the sport can always call the race.
Horse racing is unlike most sports, if only for the fact that we can’t talk to these players, to see how they are feeling the day of the race. Instead, we have to pay close attention to the behavior of the animal to determine its mood and health. A horse may feel and look great during a warm-up, but can wind up feeling ill before the race for some unknown reason. The best planning in the world can’t help you with this and even those bets that you thought were sure things can come around and bite you, when you least expect it.
Because the races are so quick and the animals unpredictable, it is easy for money to change hands in a blink of an eye. You can visit any Kentucky Derby site you find and study the history of the sport, become an expert on the animals, their trainers and the sport itself, and you may still wind up losing more than you expected. If you want to play it smart, never take more than you can afford to lose.
It’s not just women who are concerned about their appearance these days. Men are increasingly more aware of how they look. It makes sense when you think about it, your outward appearance can make a difference in how you are perceived. Additionally, it can even affect your bottom line. Yes, your appearance can be the difference between you getting a job or not. A worn and tired appearance is never a good thing, when you are on a job interview or going for a big promotion. You want to look fit, well-rested and ready to tackle just about anything. An interview is all about selling yourself. We are often judged on our appearance and however unfair it may be, it is generally the case. Nothing makes you look more haggard and fatigued than dark under eye circles.
Is There a “Quick Fix”
No one is immune to dark circles under the eyes. Sometimes, it can’t be avoided. Allergies can trigger an outbreak, as well as a restless night of sleep. Hopefully, neither of these causes happen the night before a crucial job interview. If they do, a quick fix might work. Cold compresses are known to reduce the appearance of dark circles for a short time. There are also several over-the-counter creams that are good and concealing the darkness for a while. If the darkness is due to allergies, then an over-the-counter antihistamine may help. However, if you have a reoccurring problem you need a long term fix.
How About a Cure?
Depending on the cause of the darkness, there are a few remedies. One way to determine if excess pigment is the cause, is to press on the area lightly, with your fingertip. If the area does not appear lighter afterwards, for a short time, it is most likely due to a pigmentation issue. Excessive exposure to sun can cause pigmentation issues, but heredity is also a cause. If the problem is caused by sun exposure, sunscreens may help to reduce the pigmentation problems. You should also wear sunglasses, when outdoors, in the daylight hours. A lightening cream can also reduce the darkness due to pigmentation.
If the area does appear lighter after pressing down it is probably caused by blood vessels being exposed. You will need to get collagen treatments, to build up the area under your eyes. Smoking is another cause of under eye circles. Eliminating the irritant will, in time reduce the darkness. However, this may be easier said than done.
Dark areas under your eyes might seem like a strictly cosmetic issue, but if getting rid of them makes you feel younger and more vibrant it will come through in your attitude and overall level of confidence. All of this makes it a problem worth tackling.
What is it about the words bachelor pad that brings up visions of a disheveled man cave, with empty (we hope) pizza boxes strewn everywhere and crushed beer cans stacked up against the walls? Where does it say that bachelor pads can not consist of quality house plans put to good use and kept at least, in some semblance of semi-tidy?
His Home Is His Castle
Though castles and caves are usually considered dark and dank, a bachelor pad or man cave can be anything but unhospitable. Is the ultimate bachelor pad reminiscent of the one belonging to Austin Powers or should it be more on the lines of an elegant, sophisticated reflection of the man himself? Clearly it all depends on the individual calling themselves a bachelor. Whether it is bachelor or bachelorette, you want to build the best home possible. It's an investment not only for now, as a place for you to live, but should your circumstances change down the line, this investment could either be changed and altered, to fit your new needs or rented out to a different bachelor and end up being a source of income, for you. Again however the importance of it being a quality home is essential, for the longevity of the building itself and investment purposes.
Time to Open Up the Laptop
How does one go about finding someone that can make this idea a reality? The same way you find anything these days… On the Internet. You're going to want to research the company, in as much detail as possible. But, what should you look for in a home planning and building company? Well, you want someone that's going to ensure that their customers receive the highest quality of assistance and efficiency. A sales staff that will help assist with the design of the custom home, from its very beginning stages. An in-house architect and designer could make the building process smoother from beginning to end. And, if a job manager were assigned to expedite the job and keep things on track both on and off the job site that would be ideal. The home website should have excellent features for navigation, in fact many these days include videos, so that you can find and view just exactly what it is that you need. HD quality videos and pictures make the website even more attractive. Once you book a company you should be able to keep track of everything going on with your build from changing orders, to approving selections. Customer accounts should be created so that you can access yours from your laptop whenever you need to, as many times as you need to.
Will every home building website have all of this? Probably not. Decide which of these qualities are most important to you and begin your research with a simple search using Yahoo, Google, Safari or your favorite search engine. That bachelor pad could be only a couple of clicks away.
So, if you are replacing a shed the right way are we to assume that it was originally constructed the wrong way? Maybe it was just constructed a really long time ago and eventually gave into the elements. Though the elements and Mother Nature herself are both fierce powers to reckon with, today’s building materials are built utilizing some of the highest technology known to mankind. The combination of metals, alloys and other stress and moisture resistant materials make not only the material that the building is constructed from, but the fasteners holding it together longer-lasting and more durable.
The Experts Weigh In
There is always some expert somewhere willing to weigh in on just about any topic you could possibly pull out of your... storage shed. According to one online expert the biggest and most important decision to make, when it comes to building a flawless and fully utilitarian storage shed is to decide well in advance exactly what it is that you need and what you want. Putting ample amounts of research into your storage shed, before actually starting the building process is vital... all the way from what it will look like to the types of materials you will use to construct it. The foundation must be secure, the floor strong enough to support anything you store in that shed, the walls resistant to the elements and since a great roof makes a longer-lasting building, be sure not to skimp on the quality of tarpaper, shingles and roofing screws that you use.
What’s in Your Storage Shed?
According to another online expert, what you’re going to store in your shed is going to make a world of difference in not only how you build that shed and with what materials, but the style of something as seemingly insignificant as the door. A door is a door right? Wrong!! There are single opening doors, dutch doors, double doors which allow for larger access area and coiling or roll up overhead doors, such as what’s probably on your garage. Massive machinery is best suited to these overhead types of doors. Smaller riding lawn mowers and such can probably suffice with double doors. And, if all you have is a push mower and a wheelbarrow on your list of yard equipment, a single door may suffice.
The whole point is to protect the objects inside, so building a shed that stands up to the elements is the most important aspect, when it all comes down. And hopefully, it won’t all come down.
Why is it when you first meet a woman all you need is to have her look at you and you can’t wait to get her in the bedroom for a bit of aerobic activity. Just a word, just a sound, sneaking a peak at her cleavage, when she’s not looking or the top of her thong when she bends over and suddenly you are ready to perform. Your relationship gets more serious and steady. The two of you have decided to stick with each other in a committed relationship. The sex is good and you enjoy each others company. Time passes. One day you realized the spark just isn’t there anymore. Oh, you still love each other. But, you just don’t have that same excitement or drive, when she walks in the room. Sex has become routine. It’s just something to do to stay healthy or to get done and over, before your favorite T.V. show starts. Maybe you would rather not tonight, because you started that new book and want to get to the next chapter. You could continue on this downward spiral. Or you could find ways to change the routine and bring the excitement back into the relationship. One of you will need to take the initiative, so it might as well be you.
Where to Start
You can turn to male enhancement products such as Sinrex pills, if you find that perhaps you are not reaching your fullest arousal potential. The internet is a great place to search out all kinds of male enhancement products and where you can read some of the best vimax testimonials. These products can do a lot to get the mojo back into your love life. Or with a little thought you can get those pheromones flying once again with a little bit of creativity.
It doesn’t take a lot of thought or imagination. Remember all those erotic films you watched, when you were single? (Oh come on, you watched them, just admit it). Where you once said they were just for educational purposes, now you can say it and be telling the truth. Pick up any of them and there’s a fantasy scene waiting to be recreated. The pizza boy making the delivery. The plumber coming to fix the sink. The sailor on leave wanting a little companionship, for the night. Pirates! The bus load of cheerleaders that broke down in your driveway and they all need to use your shower, because they just got done with the big game and..…..oh wait, that’s mine. Sorry.
Don’t Be Such a Traditionalist
Try surprising your woman sometimes. If you think the bedroom is just for sleeping or just for having sex, it’s time to break out of that pattern. How many rooms and closets do you have in your house? Wink, wink guys. Time to make the kitchen a little extra hotter, next time you are there. She wants you to set the table? Do it with her as the centerpiece (WARNING- do not have sex on your dinning room table with other guests present). Hide in a closet and the next time she is walking by pull her in and slam the door. (WARNING- identify your target before pulling them in. You want to make sure it is the woman you love and not her visit aunt or your old college buddy).
Oh you boys and your machismo. Well gentlemen you’ll be happy to know that there are guy oriented excursions, such as hunting or salmon fishing in Alaska that contain more testosterone than a CVS pharmacy. If that is… You’re man enough for it.
If That Sounded Like a Challenge… It Was Meant to
It will be a challenge indeed, when that helicopter and guide drop you off at your mountain top destination, in the wilderness, and wave goodbye as they shout 'see you in a week. Byyyyiiiieee', whoop-whoop-whoop-whoop (helicopter blades beating the air). Well, there you go fellas. It’s just you, the Alaskan wilderness and your er… Gun. Or crossbow. Or fly fishing rod. Your weapon of choice. I hope you brought your long underwear. Wouldn’t want to freeze anything off in this frozen tundra – and no that does not refer to the NFL stadium in Green Bay. This is the real frozen tundra, boys. It’s also where you’ll find the mountain goats, bald eagles, sea lions polar bears, black bears, brown bears or even a moose all hanging out. If you’ve chosen to have your little fishing campground at the beach, instead you may run into whales, sea lions, salmon, Alaskan king crab or snow crab. Either way, there will be an abundance of wildlife, whether you’re hunting, fishing or in search of photo opportunities, in all of Mother Nature’s glory.
Macho Enough for You yet Fellas?
Of course there is no saying that you have to be lost in the Alaskan wilderness, in order to enjoy a manly getaway with your buddies. As mentioned earlier, beach camping resorts abound in Alaska. This is NOT the kind of beach where you’re going to grab your wetsuit and your surfboards though guys. This is where you park an RV, light a campfire, drink till you’re stupid (er) and get up at the crack of dawn to go fishing. After a day of fishing you return to your beloved campsite and start the entire process over. Eagle Beach, Clam Gulch, Monashka Bay Beach, Buskin Beach, Home Spit Beach and Deep Creek Beach are just a few of the places that allow and provide for camping.
Just as an example, Eagle Beach has trails, fishing, camping and beach combing. It has a boat launch, hiking trails, picnic sites and available water and toilets for the campers. You can bring your RVs up to 35 feet, pay $10 for a campsite, enjoy 590 acres of Alaska and stay for a limit of seven days. Having fun yet?
Whether or not you have already popped the question, if you’re in love the time will soon arise that you will be in need of an engagement and wedding rings. As the big day approaches, you may want to consider just exactly how special you would like those rings to be. Custom jewelry is a sure way of making the statement – ‘I love you more than anything. You are so very special to me.’ The reason being of course, that custom made jewelry represents sentiments and emotions. It is a one-of-a-kind piece, much like your future mate for life.
Popping the Question without An Engagement Ring
This is not unheard of, particularly when the bride-to-be may be the sort that wants to have a say in the piece of jewelry she will wear, hopefully for the rest of her life. There is no harm in asking someone to marry you and then checking out Atlanta engagement ring designers. A unique and special piece of jewelry, such as one that is custom-made, sends a distinct message not only to the one you love, but to others as well. It shows that you cared enough to spend the time to make a design that is befitting the tastes, style and personality of you and your future mate. Take it a step further by having the wedding rings custom-made and you can both have a unique piece of jewelry, that will be unmatched by anything else in your collection. So special are these pieces, that you will more likely than not want to pass it down the line, from generation to generation, as a family heirloom. Custom jewelry is truly an investment, in the future – not only your future together but the future of your children and your children’s children.
Please Accept This Ring As a Promise and a Token of My Love
Popping the question down on one knee as you open the jewelry box containing a priceless work of art in the form of an engagement ring is a memory that parents can relate to their children over and over. A custom made engagement ring is not priceless because of the stones or metals that it contains, though it could be. Moreover it is priceless, because of what it represents. It represents your love, your commitment - your belief that the two of you share something so special that no ordinary piece of jewelry would do.
Tell your jewelry artisan the budget that you have to work within. They will be extremely helpful, in not only showing you how to come in under or at that budget, but in determining what types of metals and stones to use, what style may best serve you and your needs and even go so far as to help with a design should you be at a loss.
The key term here being free, as in free poker money. Yes, it's true, you can play with free money, on any number of online gambling sites.

What's the Name of the Game?
When it comes to poker there are seemingly limitless choices, as to just exactly what kind of poker it is that you want to play.

Texas Hold 'em has become extremely popular, since pay-TV networks have been televising it. There is five card stud, you can call something wild, there is jacks or better… The list is as long as your arm. And, whereas you may be able to cheat in a real casino, the odds of you cheating online are slim to none. There are also different levels of play, when it comes to the people against whom you will be competing. There are everything from novices to experts and professionals online. You will have to determine your level of play.
No Deposit… No Problem

Some people get a little nervous, when you start talking about gambling online. Free trials are available through some online gambling sites. You've got to love a free trial. Heck nothing's free anymore. Here is a small example of one particular free money poker site.

As in most cases, be sure to pay attention to the fine print, because some gambling sites do not allow citizens from certain continents, to play and get paid. And of course, you have to be 18 in order to play on any gambling site.
If you are considering taking a supplement such as omega-3 fatty acids loaded fish oil capsules, you’re probably already familiar with supplements and where to get them. If this is something new to you however, you can always rely on your local, neighborhood health food store. If getting out to the health food store is a problem however, you can always utilize your trusty laptop.
It’s easy enough to find reviews for any service or product online, as well as doing your shopping online. Use your favorite search engine again and simply type in what it is you’re looking for (or the company from which you would be purchasing it) and the word ‘reviews’.
