leather furniture

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

Leather is a great decorative investment in any home.  Its feel and look cannot be imitated, no matter how many attempts have already been made to copy it.  But there are drawbacks to owning leather furniture that you are probably already aware of if you are lucky enough to own some leather items of your own – or even are thinking of investing in leather.

Ever since leather was used as upholstery, there have been scuff marks, fading colors, and worst of all tears.  But there have also been ingenious leather furniture repair solutions advanced to help even the most severely damaged leather.

Gold bars

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

When my husband looks at a gold price chart, he always ends up telling me that the price is nowhere near the top of its trajectory.  Based on other commodities price charts that he’s seen in the recent past, there is a lot of room above the current price of roughly $1,700 per ounce.

This is great news for anyone who thinks that the price of gold is too high already to get in and that it’s too late to buy gold bars – to get on for a ride.  I won’t speculate on the ultimate price of gold in the coming months and years, but again – as my husband points out from the charts – there is no indication that the price is going the other way any time soon either.


The Bible

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

It’s been a while since I read my Bible. I wanted to read it within 3 months but I failed. It’s just too much sometimes that time is limited. But I am not saying that’s impossible because it is possible. I just need to organize my time and start reading again. I need to really commit to it and do it diligently.

“The Kitchen Remodeling Boca Raton”

Monday, March 19th, 2012

We have a friend who recently upgraded their kitchen.  I remember thinking before its remodelling, that this particular kitchen didn’t seem to have much going for it originally.  It was nearly indistinguishable from almost any other kitchen in a house of that age – 30 or 40 years old.  The colors certainly didn’t pop out at you, and the cabinets were of the plainest wood-painted design.  So it was certainly a perfect candidate for a kitchen remodeling Boca Raton.

Well, when all was said and done, the new kitchen was light years ahead of the old.  They had newer composite kitchen cabinets installed that were much lighter in color – which in itself took years off of the apparent age of the kitchen.  And one of the next major improvements was the lighting, which was brought into the 21st century by changing the old center globe fixture into multiple pot lamps – both hanging and recessed.   In my opinion, this particular change was huge and is often the single greatest improvement you can make with a kitchen or other room in your house.

They also changed the counter tops, added a backsplash and upgraded the sink.  The end result was that the whole house – and not just the kitchen – was made to look like it could have been built only a few years ago and not decades.

Dinner tonight

Monday, March 19th, 2012

I just finished cooking our dinner. I made some stir fry such as carrots, cauliflower and brussel sprouts. I just love brussel sprouts even though it taste a little bit bitter. Anyway I also baked fish and fries. I guess that’s all for dinner tonight. I think after dinner I’m going to take a walk outside since the weather is really good. I hate to miss it.

Photo album books

Monday, March 19th, 2012

We’ve come a long way from the earliest printing press made by the inventor Guttenberg.  It’s hard to imagine what it would have been like in those days before movable typesetting made it possible to print multiple copies of books speedily and accurately.  There would have been only a privileged few who could afford to keep any books at all.  And most wouldn’t even have known how to read those books if they had them.   It’s easy to forget how lucky we are to have such wide and easy access to volumes and volumes of information in books.

But it’s just as easy to forget that we are in the middle of another revolution at this very moment.  Up until recently, the barriers to getting a book published would have prevented all but the most determined and resourceful authors from even considering such a thing.  But with the advent of modern computing technology and high speed internet communication, it can all be done on your kitchen table and sent out to the manufacturer almost at the speed of thought.

I’ve always been interested in scrapbooking and photo album books.  So it was that when we got a computer and went online, I naturally gravitated towards creating my own online scrapbooks and blogs like this one.  I’ve been doing this as well for quite a while, and now find that I’m at the point where I want to make my work available in book form.

Now before you think that printing your own book is ludicrous and that you could never consider doing it yourself, consider how far we’ve come in just the last 10 years alone.  We didn’t even have Facebook back at the beginning of the millennium.  What you do in the next 10 years could be even more fantastic.
