So you are finding a date and have decided

So you are finding a date and have decided that you want to check out the online dating seeking scene? You have subscribed to a dating site and browsed through some profiles and have finally found someone you fancy getting to know better. Now you are wonder what do I say? Usually you need to fill on an online form that leaves a message for the person you want to correspond with as most sites do not allow you to see a users personal e mail address. Dont get nervous, it is really easy, so try to stay calm when writing the initial email.

Here are some which can help you write an e mail which will catch the attention of the reader.

It is best to write a draft first and then edit it. Make sure you keep it interesting, simple and light. It is important that you dont come across to strongly and write this email in a positive tone. Most people like individuals who see the glass as half full. Usually people who subscribe to online dating seeking websites are looking for people who are interesting and down to earth.

The content of your e mail should not be too detailed or personal. Usually the initial email should be about four to five paragraphs and contain some questions which help to instigate a conversation and prompts the reader to reply. It also gives the reader the impression that you really want to know the person a bit better; however, it is important that you dont ask questions already answered in the profile of this person. If you find you dont really know what to ask then you can use the profile of the person you are writing to and ask to expand on something they already stated in their profile.

Usually a good place to start this email is to say where you have been brought up and your occupation, etc. Then you should mention your family and pets. After this you should say something about your interests. Make sure you mention things that are really important for you, for example, a pet. You may be an animal lover but the person you are writing this e mail to may have zoophobia. Such questions should be asked in a light hearted manner and the answers will help you to decide if you should pursue e mailing this person.

Finally you should talk about the kind of relationship you are looking from the online dating seeking website and enquire about anything you want to ask. Remember not to ask personal questions about past relationships or mention any thing about your own personal relationships. Make sure you ask plenty of questions that are open ended and cannot be answered by yes or no answers, for example, what kind of music they like and why?.

Just remember to keep it light and simple and you will most certainly get a reply, then it is up to you if you want to carry on corresponding.

Help is one of the most difficult things to get in the present day and age

Help is one of the most difficult things to get in the present day and age. All too often, people get stuck because they feel they do not know how to ask for help in their workplace.  Inevitably, if you want to succeed in your career you will need the help of others. Getting help may have less to do with your authority and formal position.  It is more to do with your strategy and approach, which can range from a simple favor to convincing others to accept a priority of yours as if it were their own. Read on to discover some of the most amazing facts on how to get anyone to help you.

To enlist the help of others, you need to ask for help. Most people are more than willing to give you a hand provided you must ask for their help at the very first place.  However, you must define what needs to be done before asking for help. The more you can identify specifically the help you need and the tasks to be done, the better. Remember, fuzzy goals lead to fuzzy results. By defining all the tasks required, you increase the likelihood of success.  So, swallow your pride, and just ask!  

When you make a general request for volunteers perhaps during a meeting, never ever make it sounds like "Whoever doesn't have much of anything to do can work on this." Your chances of getting someone to volunteer thus tend to be slim. However, if you think about who might best be able to help with a task and then specifically ask that person for help, your odds of getting him or her to accept the task increase dramatically. For instance, "Max, I'm putting together a team to design a new product.  Your expertise in xafsing analysis for sure can help us to make the right decision.  Can we count on you to join us?"

The important thing to remember is to always say Thank You for their assistance. Thank and acknowledge others for their help.  You may send a personal note of thanks or perhaps a nice personal e-mail thank you is certainly a great choice in this information age. The person will feel that his or her time and energy were appreciated. In addition, you will likely be able to call on the person again in the future for assistance. People are glad to help those who appreciate their efforts.

Think about what your life would be like if nobody helps you at certain stage of your life when you need them?  Your achievement will be limited if you limit yourself to only the things you can do without help from others.  So, if you have a good idea in an area where you lack the necessary skills, knowledge or experiences, think it through and show others how they can help achieve the desired result.  Ask, and you shall receive, the help you need to make your life a success!


If you are thinking of buying a new home in Florida

If you are thinking of buying a new home in Florida, Palm Coast is a city worth considering.  Nestled amid the wooded beauty and natural wetlands of Florida's East coast, Palm Coast is a growing city of more than 50,000 residents.  Palm Coast offers all the amenities of city life with a small town feel.  Our welcoming community and careful city planning give you a sense of Old Florida without sacrificing convenience.

Beautiful weather, numerous amenities and activities such as golf, tennis, boating, fishing, and more, pristine beaches, proximity to state and local parks, and exciting Florida cities; Palm coast has something for everyone.

Tips for the new home buyer

Just as you would in any other city, it pays to do plenty of research before you buy your new Palm Coast home.  Explore the city, visit the Chamber of Commerce, and read the local papers.  Decide which Palm Coast neighborhood provides the amenities you desire, including proximity to work, schools, medical care, shopping, parks and other recreational activities.   

Buying an existing home

Carefully consider whether you would like to purchase an existing home or if you would like to have a custom home built.  If you decide to purchase an existing home, and there are homes for sale in your desired neighborhood, either call the listing realtors, or find a realtor you would like to work with exclusively.  Make sure you find a realtor you are comfortable with and who inspires your confidence.  This is the person who will be guiding you through your home buying process, especially if you purchase an existing home, so choose carefully.

Potential pitfalls of an existing home purchase

When buying an existing home in Palm Coast, or anywhere else in Florida, there are several things you need to look out for.  First, carefully consider the age of the home you are looking to purchase.  Was it built before lead paint restrictions were put into place?  Does it have an old (and often unsafe) furnace that will need to be removed?  Does the home have solid electrical wiring and plumbing, or will you have to make expensive repairs? 

Take advantage of the inspection process.  Hire a quality inspector who will thoroughly inspect all major systems in the home, and who will be able to tell you more about the structural integrity of the home.  Some homes are built below hurricane code, and if you are buying a new home in Florida, the last thing you want is a below-code home.  The inspection process is crucial!  You need to ask if there has been any termite damage, flood damage, wood rot, roof damage or leaks in the home. 

Considering a newly constructed Palm Coast home

Although it can be more expensive to have a custom home built, the new home buyer would be well served to research and consider this option.  If you decide on a custom home, you immediately alleviate several new home buying worries.  Everything is new, so you don't have to worry about expensive repairs.  In a newly constructed home, there are no termites, no wood rot, leaks or flood damage, and you know what materials that are being used to build your home.  Not to mention, with a custom home you have the opportunity to build a home that reflects your personality, with exactly the colors and features that you have always wanted.

Finding the right builder

It is best to research several home builders in the Palm Coast area.  Homes built by reputable builders are often more expensive, but quality construction is well worth the extra expense.  Cheaper tract homes may be easier on the wallet initially, but in the Florida climate you will end up paying more for repairs in the long run if you buy a cheaply build home. 

When interviewing a prospective builder, begin by asking about the types of materials they use.  Quality builders use quality materials.  Do they build the walls and foundations with wood, concrete block, or solid poured concrete?  Do they build their homes above hurricane code?  If so, how far above code do they go?  Find out about upgrade packages and whether it costs more for high quality materials and comfort upgrades.  Ask for references and check them.

Educated buyers have the best home buying experience

Do your homework, shop around, and find quality professionals you can trust to assist you with everything from finding or building your ideal Palm Coast home, to financing that home.  The extra time you put in now will pay dividends in the long run, and will ensure that you have a positive experience when finding the Palm Coast home of your dreams.


A complete appraisal of popular air purifiers

 A complete appraisal of popular air purifiers
There are at least fifteen major brands promoting air purifiers. Below you will find condensed air purifier reviews for four of the most popular brands:

Oreck Air Purifiers
The Oreck Super Air 8 Air Purifier uses four different technologies to clear your air. The pre-filter catches large particles such as dust and pollen. The charcoal filter captures some of the smaller particles and chemicals that irritate the eyes and throat. Then the electrostatic precipitator electronically charges small particles with a negative ion, and immediately a collector plate magnetically grips the charged particles. Simultaneously, the Oreck air purifier generates negative ions and sends them out into the air, causing pollutants to drop right out of the air.

Ionic Breeze Air Purifiers
The Sharper Image Ionic Breeze GP uses a combination of electrostatic precipitator, negative ion generator, and an ultraviolet light. The ultraviolet light is a new improvement to the unit, which works to kill bacteria and viruses. The Ionic Breeze air purifier generates high amounts of harmful ozone, so make sure you place the unit at least two to ten feet away from your bed and furniture.

Hunter Air Purifiers
The Hunter Quietflo 3400 and the Hunter HEPAtech 30375 both use a carbon prefilter to capture large air pollutants. They both come equipped with a Change Filter light to minimize guesswork. Either can be operated manually or set on a timer. The 30375 includes a built-in ion generator.

Austin Air Purifiers    
Austin Air offers five types of air purifiers. They come in two sizes: 15 pounds (the 400 series) and 6 pounds (the 200 series). They use a carbon and zeolite prefilter in combination with a HEPA filter. It is a sturdy-looking machine made of metal, for those who are sensitive to the smell of plastic.;7geonpc0vo7gw306aki,-LTD.&Location=Barguna


For this little beauty secret you use two household items

For this little beauty secret you use two household items that are rock bottom cheap to buy; Baking Soda, and Peroxide.
Yep, that is how simple it is.
You take the baking soda and peroxide and you make a thick paste out of them. You should not need more than a tablespoon of the paste.
Apply the paste to teeth, and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes every morning and night.
The most effective way to do this, and brighten your smile, is by brushing your teeth with the paste. However, remember that it will only work if you use it every morning and night, without fail.
Baking soda and peroxide will not only whiten your teeth but clean them too, if you use them in place of toothpaste.
Then just sit back and watch the results!
Your smile will become visibly whiter, and to boot you will save a bundle on toothpaste, and teeth whiteners.

Do not  you always hate it when summer rolls around, and your body is hardly swimsuit or shorts ready?
Or even the rest of the year when it seems impossible to disguise those figure flaws!

Beauty Secret 2
Hide figure flaws and defects.

If you are pear shaped:

Wear tighter tops to show off your trim upper body, and skirts that taper towards the hemline to disguise your pear shape.

Buy jeans that are a snug fit and are low rise (the low rise will emphasize your small waist and the tightness has a surprisingly slimming effect on legs and butt).

Dresses that end just a little above the knee work nicely for pear figures as they hide bulky upper legs.

The best swimsuits for pear figures tend to be bikinis that have low cut bottoms with a flounce skirt. This draws eyes away from the legs, and minimizes them at the same time.

If you are spoon shaped:

Wear shirts that tend to fall straight down and do not cling, to hide a bulky stomach.

Or wear a snug t-shirt with a button up shirt or sweater over it, leaving the buttons unfastened on the shirt or sweater.

Wear shorts and skirts that are short to emphasize your good feature (your legs).

The best swimsuit for women who are big on top and little on bottom is a full piece that is high cut in the hips.

This hides the stomach, and shows of slender legs and buttocks.

If you are an extremely skinny woman all over:

Wear skirts that flounce out and shirts that ruffle to give you a more rounded appearance.

Wear semi loose dresses that are cinched only in the right spots.

For instance, emphasize a small waist with a dress that is cinched in the middle but flounces out from the hips to give a curvy appearance.

Wear snug jeans, or loose slacks with a pull over sweater, these will both work well for your figure type.

The best swimsuits for skinny women are of course bikinis. Full pieces give slender women a little girl appearance, and are not very attractive.

The bikinis are best if they are high cut in the hips and butt. This flatters a thin woman best by showing off her waist and legs.

Low cut bikinis will also work well with a skinny woman though, if you want to emphasize slender hips.

If you are a large woman all over:

You should go for just slightly loose fitting clothes. Too loose and you will only make yourself appear bigger.

Wear panty hose to make your legs look slim. Avoid overly tight clothes at all costs, this will make your skin roll, and you will look bigger than ever.

Choose mainly capris and knee length skirts or dress for summer. Avoid shorts, miniskirts, or short dresses until you slim down.

The best swimsuit for a full figure is (you guessed it) a full piece, cut low in the hips, and with a skirted bottom.

If you are a curvy woman (also known as an hour glass figure):


If you really want to look glamorous at a cocktail event

If you really want to look glamorous at a cocktail event, you must choose to wear a short cocktail dress that is appropriate to your body shape. Your short cocktail dress must highlight your body features that are perfect and conceal or make less prominent whatever the small imperfections. The striking feature about the short cocktail dress is it has the distinct capability to make you appear appealing, feminine, graceful and arrest peoples attention.
Short cocktail dress can be designed in different ways. The hemlines can be extremely brief reaching only up to mid thigh, or covering up to just a little over the knees or to marginally go beyond the the knees. Select the length of your cocktail dress depending on the formality of the occasion and how much skin you want to show.

But remember that there is a thin line that divides a gorgeous look from a sexually provocative one. The simple rule to follow is - you should not be seen as an exhibitionist walking the romp but as a respectable guest attending a dinner gala. Brief cocktail attires can be found in a plethora of types and cuts that you can easily pick the one you want.

Every woman dreams of finding the perfect cocktail dress that will make her feel confident, sensual and self assured enabling her to highlight her best features and disguising her less perfect ones. Unlike long evening gowns, short cocktail dresses are a lot much more comfortable to wear and help free movement.
A female body that lacks natural curves can wear bright colors and bold patterns that provide an ultimate feminine presence. Dark colors can make an overweight woman look slimmer and to balance a top-heavy figure, select a flattering neckline like the V-neck.

You can consider wearing short cocktail dress for fancy parties, opera or ballet, weddings and formal dinner parties. Short cocktail dresses come in an array of shapes made from exquisite materials like silk, velvet, crepe, brocade and satin - though chiffon is still the most popular choice.

The color of the fabric for the short dress can also lend additional charm to the wearer. For summer, opt for floral prints in light pink, sky blue, pale green and yellow, as well as other pastels. For parties during winter select gray, crimson, black, dark brown and dark blue cocktail dresses. White and red are another two options that are to be considered in case you are looking for some extra radiance.
There are numerous designs of short cocktail dresses - strapless brief cocktail dress, one-shoulder brief cocktail dress, a slim and puffy design, childish looking doll attire, a body hugging dress etc. Never try to wear a short cocktail dress however trendy  if it is ill fitting.
Never impulsively choose to wear a short dress simply because it looks great. Instead, select a type of short dress that brings out the best in you. Be it sophisticated or chic, classically glamorous or sexy - a few well selected cocktail dresses are a must for every wardrobe.
Selecting appropriate accessories for short cocktail dresses is also equally important. Also choose beautiful matching wraps to cover your arms. Take special care in choosing shoes if you are sporting a short dress, as shoes invariably become an important focal point.


If you are a couch potato

Are you one of those people who just cant seem to give up the Twinkies?  Do you enjoy being a couch potato day after day and steadily gaining weight?  Are you ashamed of how you look and people snickering behind your back because youre overweight or obese?  Do you want to make permanent changes to your lifestyle?

Well, the truth is, it can be done, but youll have to help in the process.  There are too many people that have allowed their weight to go to pot.  They dont want to do anything about it.  Then they want people to feel sorry for them because of their predicament.  Why should they?  They were not the cause of the excessive weight loss.  This is something that you allowed to happen. 

However, there is some good newsit can be corrected.  You would have to play a major role in doing just that.  You will have to rid yourself of the old habits that have kept you bound and be willing to learn new habits.  Learning new habits is not a quick fix, nor is it simple.  If you are committed to changing your habits from bad to good, then you will eventually see results.

If you are a couch potato, you must change that.  You must get up more and get away from the television.  You must find things to do where you can move around and not continue to be sedentary. 

For instance, take a 10-minute walk around your neighborhood or go to the park.  You can start out at least a few times a week and gradually increase the pace.  Doing this takes discipline and willpower.  You must want to learn new habits in order to change your life.  Its not going to just jump out there at you and pull you by the hand.

Willpower involves setting your mind to learn new habits and changing your mindset.  You have to want it for yourself.  It can be difficult at first.  However, once youve made a decision to do the right thing, just make that start and go ahead and do it. 

It may be best if you dont talk about it and just do it.  A lot of times, people will talk, but wont take any action.  That is one of the worst things you can do. 

If you are not the kind of person that is self-motivated, then find some people that will be willing to help you.  You have to keep at it constantly.   Learning new habits, new slim habits, can be rewarding once youve set your mind to change.  Once you do that, you will be effective in your weight loss goals.


Wedding photos are as good as the wedding

Wedding photos are as good as the wedding photographer who took them. Its therefore very important to make sure that you hire the right Toronto photographer to do the work for you. Remember that the photos hold pieces of memories that are dear to you. They should thus be able to present the memories in the best way possible. A wedding photographer should offer these 5 things;-

A Toronto photographers work can be judged by how well he is able to capture images on camera. This is well judged by assessing his past work from where one gets the idea whether he is the right person for the work. Both action and posed wedding photos in his work should have character. The people in the picture should also be rightly positioned. Bad work can be detected when the wedding photographer has cut some people off in a group photo, or where they leave too much space at the top and consequently the legs are out of the picture. Color is an important consideration with the better quality wedding photos having no color distortions. A wedding photographer should also be knowledgeable about different lighting needs and how to use his camera in different light settings. The wedding photographer for example, should know that shooting against the sun will result in dark photos.
A wedding photographer who is able to interact with the people whose picture he or she is taking is most likely to shoot quality photos.  A confident wedding photographer is capable of giving you good wedding photos for your Toronto wedding. This means that the wedding photographer is able to abide by the work ethics, will not be late, and miss the important details of the wedding. The wedding photographer should also be able to dress appropriately.

The wedding photographers cameras should be of professional quality, he should have flashes to use in low light areas and lenses to use in high light situation. Professionalism requires that he or she have backup equipment with him, starting with a camera, camera batteries, and additional memory cards. A wedding photographer should also show commitment to make the wedding day a special occasion for you. A wedding photographer who asks to visit the wedding venue before hand could be having your best interests at heart

If yours is a Toronto wedding ceremony, the wedding photographer must have a good knowledge of the area.  He should also be conversant with how weddings are conducted there. This is the only way he can be able to anticipate the special moments that need to be captured in the wedding photos. Since the pictures are meant to last a long time, they should be of good quality.

Discuss the cost before hand so that both of you are in agreement about it. Be sure to inform the wedding photographer about the different locations where you will have photos taken so he wont have a reason to ask for more money later.  Money matters not withstanding, the ultimate value should lie with the quality of the photos that he takes.


UFC fighters are always looking for an advantage

UFC fighters are always looking for an advantage.  Some resort to switching up trainers, some vary their training partners and camps, even others unfortunately resort to steroids or other performance enhancing drugs.  One of the most common, effective and legal ways to enhance performance is to drop weight temporarily for weigh-ins so that fighters can compete at a lower weight class than their natural weight would be.

Let me start at the top, the UFC heavyweight division.  There are a couple of UFC heavyweights who could make 205lbs, remember Randy Couture fought as a light heavyweight for a while, he even held the light heavyweight title.  There is really only one UFC heavyweight who I want to talk about dropping weight.  Brandon "The Truth" Vera just dropped a three round decision to former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia.  Brandon didn't loose this match because of his skill-set.  He lost because of Tim's size.  Tim pushed Vera up against the fence and used his weight to close the distance, essentially negating Vera's superior kicking game.  If Brandon Vera dropped down to 205lbs I feel he would be competing on an even playing field and would likely quickly move into title contention.

The UFC light heavyweight division has the majority of guys who should consider dropping weight.  There are three that I'd like to discuss, they are Rashad Evans, Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson.  You'll note that Bisping and Evans are the main event fighters at UFC 78.  Both of these fighters are undefeated at light heavyweight.

Michael Bisping is an outstanding fighter, a good striker with an adequate ground game.  However, his recent fight with Matt Hamill shows that he can be manhandled by a stronger opponent.  Bisping mostly stayed on the outside in this fight and let Hamill control the action.  I believe that this is because he was staying away from Hamill's strength...with is wrestling, and physical strength.  We all remember on the Ultimate Fighter when Hamill was overwhelming the other fighters with his physical strength, a move to 185lbs would not only put him into title contention, but would allow Bisping to be stronger than other opponents in that weight class.

Rashad Evans has already dropped a weight class.  Rashad competed at heavyweight on the Ultimate Fighter TV series and did very well, winning his division, but his recent bout with Tito Ortiz showed that Rashad, despite his superior wrestling skills is a small light heavyweight.  Rashad will have no problems matching strength with Bisping at UFC 78, but when fighting the larger light heavyweights like Forrest Griffin, Wanderlei Silva and Tito Ortiz he will get manhandled, essentially negating his wrestling advantage.  A move to 185lbs would likely make Rashad an immediate title contender.

Dan Henderson has already fought at 185lbs and is the current, and likely last, PrideFC 185lb champion.  Dan is strong, even for a 205lb fighter and Dan probably has the best wrestling in the UFC.  Dan's last fight with Quinton Jackson showed that he can have trouble with a guy who is a good wrestler, a good striker and is as physically strong as he is.  There simply isn't a fighter at 185lbs with Dan's strength.  With a decisive strength advantage, Dan's heavy hands and fantastic wrestling would take him not only into title contention, but in my eyes he would defeat Anderson Silva.

The UFC 185lb division is probably it's weakest.  With a dominant champion and everyone else way below there are seemingly no challengers, but just above at 205lbs there are a bunch of small light heavyweight fighters who might want to consider transitioning to 185lbs.
