Easy to Disassemble Bed Frame – Made in the USA

July 24th, 2016

I just purchased a bed frame that is crafted in the USA.

It is made of pine.

It is very easy to put together without any tools.  I think I was done in 15 minutes and probably could have been done even faster.

The reason I wanted a frame like this is so that it would be easy to take with me or put into storage if I move.    This is something I can take apart quickly and carry myself.   No need to bother friends for help or to borrow a truck.

In addition, it is sturdy construction.  It is NOT like some furniture where you can put it together once or maybe twice and then it will not work very well thereafter.

Plus, as I mentioned before it is very uncomplicated – unlike the lengthy process that some furniture often takes.

If you want to see the bed frame that I purchased, here it is (click link to see) :    My new bed frame

There is no screwing screws directly into wood, which is hard to duplicate if you take it apart even once.

This frame is very nice and I have ordered an awesome mattress to put on top of it.   (Also crafted in the USA – according to the seller).

I should add a picture to this post later.

Learn A Language In Seven Days – NOT!

June 26th, 2016

You have probably seen either the spam emails or the advertisements that are showing up on even very popular websites suggesting that you can learn a language in just seven days.

I hope it is obvious that most people will not be learning a new language in seven days. There may be an extremely rare exception, but it is not likely that people are going to become fluent in a language in just 7 days.

It’s just no practical. It takes time. It takes effort. It takes practice.

There are a host of courses out there. If you are bewildered, avoid the ones that make big promises.

Just realize that ‘slow and steady’ wins the race.

I tried a couple of different programs out while trying to learn German.

After a few years, I realized that one of my original choices (that a subsequently ignored) was Rosetta Stone.

When I returned to it, years later, I realized it would have been best if I had completed that training first before trying other things.

I hope this information helps someone looking to learn a new language.

Speak With Confidence

June 24th, 2016

Speaking in public is a skill that can be developed.

However, let’s say you haven’t taken the time to develop that skill and yet you MUST speak in public suddenly.

I have some advice based on experience and what my high school English teacher taught me.

She said that the most powerful speeches are those that come from the heart.   In other words, if you are passionate about something, then just speak plainly and from the heart.  One heart to many.  You have something to say, so say it.   If you are not a polished public speaker, this really works.

On the other hand, if you have more time and you are not facing a situation where you must develop a speech quickly,  this book might be helpful to you.    

It’s called.  Speak With Confidence: A Practical Guide.

My comments: One-Third of The World Cannot See The Milky Way – And Why That Matters

June 11th, 2016

You can read the full CNN article here:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/11/health/light-pollution-atlas-milky-way-irpt/

The article discusses how ‘light pollution’ prevents most of the world from seeing what our grandparents could once see – a much better and more spectacular view of the Milky Way Galaxy  (from our corner).

It goes on to talk about how at least once study has demonstrated the damage that this artificial light can do to our human physiology.   Apparently, it may prevent us from producing enough Melatonin and may also cause us to produce too much cortisone (and the adverse affects associated with that).

It’s interesting how technology and ‘progress’ are altering the world we live in.    Yet, the universe out there beyond us is quite a bit older than our little Earth.   I find it much more interesting to ponder what is out there and what is going on out there.    It’s a vast, immense space, and I’m quite sure there are other civilizations and lives out there.

Yet, this isn’t something that people talk about.  We are consumed by our little lives here and the things we pursue.   How many of us routinely wonder if we SHOULD be pursuing the things we do.

In the human race’s vast pursuit of various things, we may have left a few things behind that we would do well to remember.   Basic goodness comes to mind.

 

When I watch the intrigues, tricks and fighting of today’s political parties and individuals, it doesn’t make me feel good.

Beyond that, the basic way people treat each other in every day life is also horrendous.   It scares me, quite frankly.    It’s ugly.   People cheat each other for whatever they think they can get.

The tricks are hidden.  They are not out in the open.  But is the end result, almost the same as physical violence?  Someone takes and someone loses.

I can’t help but thinking that one of those more advanced civilizations out there in this vast universe has it figured out in a way that we can only dream of.

Our society is almost ruthless.

 

Agree or disagree?  Sound of below.

PS:  I always recommend the book Zhuan Falun which is available for free download at  http://FalunDafa.org   – Likely the very best book I can recommend to you.
