How to throw a Poker game in your Home without your wife finding out

It is not uncommon for a man to want to have a night out with the boys, maybe play a little poker. It is also not uncommon to have the plans of men thwarted by their wives.

To help with this problem I am telling you the secrets about how to have some harmless fun at home without the wife catching on.

The best way to get rid of the wife so you can have a little “Man Time” is the easiest but most expensive way to do it. For her birthday you get her and one of her friends a trip to a weekend spa place.

Your wife will think you the best hubby ever and will never suspect you are going to throw a poker game in her absence, and the best part of this plan is that when it is over your wife will be so grateful for what you have done she may be more inclined to allow you to go out with the boys more often.

The next way is a little complicated and will only give you 4 or 5 hours of time at best, but it is much less expensive then a trip for 2. It may seem a little childish and yes I also have seen it on TV but a scavenger hunt scam can work.

The trick to the scavenger hunt is that each spot has to mean something. An example would be the first place you ever went on a date as one of the places she needs to go.

The end of the game is the most important make the last stop a restaurant and make sure to be there before she does. A good idea is to try to think of something meaning full in the area of where you live so you do not have far to drive, this will leave you the maximum amount of time to lay poker with your pals.

I have to admit this is not the ideal way to play poker, but getting away with even an hour of poker without her knowing is more excitement than any regular poker game could ever be.

Now that you have a plan to get her out of the house you need to be ready to go. The most important part of this is a large plastic drop cloth. This is so that if anything spills it will be simple to clean up.

Make sure you are ready to go with the table and chairs and make sure they get put back exactly the same as when you took them. You may want to use a digital camera to make sure you remember exactly how everything was before the game, because I promise you that you wife does.

If you send your wife on the trip I do not recommend using a cleaning service right before she comes back. If the house is too clean she will know something funny is going on

The last two tips I have is to make sure that you have a really nice gift around at all times just incase she finds out, and the other is that if your wife and your friends wives are friends do not invite those friends, if one guy gets caught you will all get caught.

Good Luck.

Why casinos need 24 hour day care

Recently in the news across the USA there have been several reports of parents leaving their children locked in their cars, while the parents sit in a casino and gamble.

A great way to stop this from happening would be to legalize online gambling so that parents that can not afford a baby sitter will not do something as stupid as locking a small child in a car alone for several hours.

Another solution would be for the casino industry to take responsibility of the people they lure in with promises of riches beyond belief. If the casinos all offered 24 hour free daycare for all casino players those parents who are so far gone in their addiction will not have to make the decision of what to do with their children, they can just take them to the casino and let them be watched after in the casinos daycare centers.

As well as making sure children are not being neglected by their parents or legal guardians, the children in their care can be checked for signs of abuse and any parent that brings a child regularly to the casino can be talked to about gambling addiction.

Please do not get me wrong I feel the parents should be the ones taking responsibility for their kids, but gambling addiction is a disease, and at least this would provide a way for the government to monitor parents gambling habits, and to provide them with help if they need it.

Besides being the right move for the casinos to make for its own civic duty, it also makes good business sense. If the casinos offer such a service they also open themselves up to single parents that could use a little time for some adult fun, and by making the day care 24 hours a day there is no reason why a parent would leave their kid at home instead of at the casinos free daycare.

The parents could relax and have a little fun with the knowledge that their kids are being taken good care of.

This is not a new concept there are several casinos in Las Vegas that offer day care. These centers offer children of different ages fun things to do, such as all the popular videos, and games fro kids. This will appeal to people with kids. The parents get to gamble and have some adult fun and the kids get to do fun kid stuff.

By doing this the casinos will get more business and they are doing the responsible thing for their customers with gambling problems. I understand that the casinos are a business, but they should make sure that some of their less responsible gamblers do not put their children's lives in danger just to make an extra few dollars in a multi billion dollar a year industry

If enough people recommend this to their local casinos and state officials, casinos could be required by law to provide child care when they are open.

How to cure Agoraphobia

Many people in the world have a disorder known as agoraphobia. This disorder brings on extremely strong panic attacks when in crowded places. Most agoraphobics eventually wind up trapped in bed or institutionalized.

The definition for agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder. The main manifestation of the disorder is a fear of having an embarrassing situation that the person can not escape from
Someone with Agoraphobia will sometimes have panic attacks when they are in a situation where they feel trapped, uncomfortable or when they are not in control or are too far away from their comfort zone, which are usually their homes. In extreme cases an agoraphobic may only be able to exist in only a room or two of their own home and may even become unable to get out of bed.
Sufferers of Agoraphobia are often overly sensitive to bodily sensations and over react to everyday occurrences, like climbing a flight of stairs. The effort it takes to climb stairs can cause a full blown panic attack, because their hart rate rises as does their breathing. The sufferer may see this is the onset of an attack and actually causes the attack to start, instead of seeing it as a natural reaction to climbing stairs.

With the invention of the internet many agoraphobics have found they are able to have contact with the world while still at home in their "safe place" and one thing that many agoraphobics have in common is that many of them enjoyed being able to gamble with other people in online casinos.

Many doctors feel that online casinos is a great form of therapy for people suffering from agoraphobia because they can interacts with several people at the same time, and it gives them the ability to interact and be relaxed at the same time and in many cases the agoraphobic has been able to lessen their fears and eventually leave their home with the goal of eventually getting to a real casino with other people.

But after October of 2006 when president George Bush Signed the Unlawful internet gambling ban into law he took away the best form of theory doctors have found to help Agoraphobics re-enter society.

Doctors found that in games like poker and blackjack where the player's game depends on the moves of the other players; have a tendency to be better for patients rather then on online roulette or craps game, where you can easily have no interaction with other players.

The interaction is healthy because the agoraphobic is not concentration on themselves they are actually concentration on the game and the other layers moves. For a sufferer of this disorder this is a huge step in being able to re-enter society, but unless the online casino ban is overturned doctors will have to find other ways of helping their patients.

How to Make Millions Playing Video Poker

Most people will tell you that the only way to walk out of a casino a Millionaire is to walk in a Billionaire, but the fact is this is not the truth. It is only the easiest way to do it.

If you are the type of person who is not afraid to risk it all for the big payoff then this may be for you.

Video poker machines can be found in every casino both land based and online casinos. These machines have the best chances of making you a millionaire in any casino.

All you need is a credit card with at least $20,000 and the nerve to risk it, in what can be less then 20 minutes. I recommend saving up $20,000 dollars before trying this and not just running up your credit card, but when I first tried it I did just run up my card.

The game you pick is very important. There are many different types of poker games offered in video form, in some of them you play a computer player and the player with the best hand wins, in the second there is no other player, the better the hand you make the more the machine pays out. A pair pays 1:1; two pairs pay 2:1 and so on. The 2nd type of Video Poker machine is the one you want.

Please keep in mind that this is not a guaranteed way to win money, and if you do not win money you can wind up twenty thousand dollars in debt, but it has made me a lot of cash, over the past 2 years I have paid all my expenses playing poker in this manner.

I usually start with at least 20,000 dollars, and making $1,000 dollar bets before the $20,000 is gone I have had at least 1 good hand where I have at least made back my money and can now start going for the big money.

Do not increase your bets to more then $1,000 until you have made at least $100,000.

I first discovered this method almost 2 years ago; I was spending my weekends down in Atlantic City playing poker, blackjack and roulette, and not winning any money, but during the week I would play a free video poker game from home, and I was winning millions of dollars every week.

So one day I decided to give it a try and instead of spending my money at the table games I went right to the video poker game, and by the end of the weekend I was up almost $60,000.

Now every few months I go down to either Atlantic City or Las Vegas, I have a bank roll of $20,000 and I make a few hundred thousand to get me till the next time.

Remember there are no guarantees that this will work for you. There have been times where I went over my $20,000 bank roll before I got my first really good hand, but I also remember one time I got a full house which paid off $25,000 on my first hand. Learn more at

Name Squeeze Your Way To Big Profits

If you want to grow your prospect list to huge numbers quickly and easily, you need to be using the name squeeze technique.

There is traffic and then there is targeted traffic. Anybody can get lots of hits to their site. The trick is to separate the browsers from those that are actually interested in your product, service, or opportunity. An easy way to do this is to build a teaser page. This is a page with basic info about your product, service, or opportunity. It gives just enough info to make visitors want to know more.

How do they find out more? Good question!

You place a form on your teaser page that asks visitors to provide their name, email, phone number(s), or whatever info you want to know about them. When the visitor fills out a form they are directed to your main site, but now you have all of their info. This info can be immediately added to auto responders to continue to drip information on the visitor via email. You can ask for phone numbers and follow up with each visitor who requests info. Calling visitors back, in my opinion, is very key. It doesn’t have to be a sales call, but if you call to introduce yourself and let the visitor know that there is an actual person behind the site, it will go a long way to getting them buying into your products, services, or opportunity. You can collect their mailing address and send them printed material as well. Bottom line, is that you now not only have visitors, but you have leads. Targeted leads with email, phone, address, etc. that you can contact any way you like.

A better name for a teaser page, is a capture page. This is because it allows you to capture all of your targeted traffic info so you can follow up with them however you like.

The more quickly you follow up with your new lead the better. If you can catch them while they are still browsing your site, they will not only be amazed, but you increase your chances at turning this high qualified lead into an actual sale.

This name squeeze technique is an easy, inexpensive way to start collecting live, targeted leads that you can add to your contact list. Sales, whether it be a product, service, or opportunity is all about numbers. The more numbers you have in your contact list, the more money you will make in the long run. If those in your list are also highly targeted as the name squeeze technique helps them to be…..your income will skyrocket!

Two Steps To Online Success - Get The Right Opportunity, Promote It Big

Most people don't make much money online. I've talked to countless intelligent, hard-working folks who tried, but gave up after accomplishing very little. But don't give up too soon.

There are really only two things you need to make money online. Unfortunately, most of us have to try a lot of things and pay a lot of dues before figuring out just what those two things are.

Most of us find or create a business opportunity, then try to promote it using various methods. Invariably, even though we may be spending a good chunk of change in our promotion effort, we aren't promoting nearly enough. There are a LOT of people pushing businesses online. If you want to get noticed and start making sales, you simply HAVE to promote BIG.

Instead of reaching a few hundred here and a few thousand there, you need to promote to MILLIONS, even BILLIONS of people in billions of places.

Ridiculously big? Not at all. Think of major corporations like Coke or Chevy. They've got their advertising in newspapers, on TV, on race cars, on business signs, on stickers, and hundreds of other places world-wide. Now that's promoting big. To sell big, you've got to promote big.

But how does the average person even begin to marketing on a large scale without mortgaging their house and winning the lottery? These days the Internet is coming to the rescue. One count of the number of ad sites is well over one billion. If you can create software to count the sites, you can also create a way to automatically submit ads to all those sites -- and that is exactly what some have made available.

Of course, the 2nd requirement for making money online is to choose the right business. Selling the same old items in the same small ways simply won't bring you more than a trickle of income.

Pick a business that sells the online audience what they really want and need. I'm reminded of the woman who started selling small items on eBay. She did ok, but soon found she was one of millions selling the same things. So she switched to selling the packaging all those millions needed to ship their items. Soon she was selling so much packaging she had to rent a warehouse and hire 10 employees just to keep up with demand. She made a LOT of money just by selling something everybody in her crowd wanted and needed.

Keep those two simple points in mind -- pick the right business, then promote really big -- and you'll find your online profits quickly reach your expectations.

"Seven Secrets of Internet Millionaires"

Internet millionaires don’t acquire their wealth and success by luck of the draw.  They know the secrets to success.  These secrets are so valuable that if you implement them, you will succeed in your own Internet business. 

There are two general types of secrets that Internet millionaires know which include external and internal secrets.  We will discuss these secrets in detail in hopes that you will use them to your advantage and become an Internet millionaire yourself.

First, let’s look at the external secrets that Internet millionaires have in their tool kit.

Internet Millionaire Secret #1:  Internet millionaires recognize that strategy should be the foundation of any marketing plan.  It is critical to have a marketing strategy and not just jump into marketing techniques.  For example, we don’t have to use mass advertising anymore because mass advertising doesn’t have strength because consumers have choices.  You would have wasted valuable time and money if you used mass marketing techniques without first strategizing about the state of the market.

Internet Millionaire Secret #2:  Internet millionaires are not generalists.  They focus on selling their products and services to specific niche markets.  The business market in general is going in the direction of niche markets because customers have more choices regarding places to buy their products.

Internet Millionaire Secret #3:  Search for and grab untapped markets.  Seek out people that have not been able to have access to your product in the past.  In untapped markets, you don’t have to deal with competitors which helps keep the marketing costs down.  In addition, you will be able to establish a rapport and trust with your customers.

Internet Millionaire Secret #4:  Your backend strategy is crucial to success.
You want several profit centers that allow you to sell your products and services to more customers.  The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.  It diversifies your business so you are bringing in money through many different areas.  You can’t rely on retiring early if you only have one profit center.

Internet Millionaire Secret #5:  Try to automate as many services as possible.  This will allow you to sell services 24 hours a day 7 days a week online.  Automate your service centers to cut down on costs and help your customers at all hours of the day.

Internet Millionaire Secret #6:  Set up your business so that you are replaceable.  You can make yourself replaceable by branding.  Branding encompasses yourself or the value that you provide.  Branding yourself is lucrative, but it doesn’t allow you to take a break because you have to make every decision.  Branding your value, on the other hand, sells your expertise and not your time.

Internet Millionaire Secret #7:  Don’t work alone; build a team to support your business venture.  Create a team of marketing, business, a mentor and accountability individuals.  Remember, two heads are better than one so you can discuss ideas and strategies you have for your business.

Internet millionaires also have internal secrets.  An Internet millionaire has self confidence and believes in their product.  They are able to make decisions quickly.  They have learned the correct information and modeled others that have proven success.  They are not afraid to make a mistake and realize that their job doesn’t define who they are.  One of the most vital secrets is that Internet millionaires persevere and never give up no matter what obstacles cross their path.

Your Visitors Want to be Blown Away!

Today I stumbled upon a cool music player – it worked so well, it was so easy and intuitive – it simply delivered. In fact it was quite remarkable. Take a look at that word – remarkable! Remark-able, yes, I was able to make voluntary, un-coerced positive remarks to my friends. They also liked it and may just tell their friends. What makes one website/product so remarkable? Well simply put when a website solves a problem, meets a need or satisfies a want, it’s likely to be a good site. However a remarkable site does all that so well that it literally over-delivers, surpasses all expectations and makes its visitors feel good just for finding it. In what way is your site, your product remarkable?

Why do you care? Because you want traffic, traffic, traffic. A good site may only convert 2- 5% of its traffic, so the higher your traffic, the more you sell. But other than positive, pervasive word of mouth you will have to work or pay for that traffic. I say work because there are some ways of generating traffic that don’t cost much money – rather they demand time and effort.

One of the best ways to draw people to your site is through original content, articles specifically. There are hundreds of sites dedicated to article postings and within your ‘author bio’ you can post the link back to your site. People go online primarily for content. They are looking for answers, looking for ideas and solutions – sure some people are just bored and browsing, but your potential clients will only exchange their hard earned money for the promise that your product will get them closer to their goal. If you can write articles that show you understand them and that you have a special insight into their interests, they may in return believe in your product enough to give it a try.

You can also write some press releases. A press release is nothing more than a written announcement that discusses something exciting and hopefully newsworthy about your business. Typically it will have contact information so that any member of the press can easily reach you in case they have questions. There are many press release sites that can educate and help you spread your news.

These ideas are just the tip of the marketing strategy iceberg. You ought to find a mentor who can help you do all the above and more. Remember – be remarkable. Let’s give them something to talk about!

Online the American Dream

Every generation has dreamed of a better life for their children, and many decided to pack up the family and move to America and that is how most Americans came to be Americans.

For 200 years people suffering from poverty, hunger or oppressive governments have dreamed of a better life for themselves and their families, and came to United States of America in search of the American Dream.

Many people around the world have to work 18 hours a day just to make enough money to survive; to these people the American dream is nothing more then a less hard life and a better education for them and their children, and to some it is getting rich without working hard to do it.

This is not much different from the mentality from an American who maybe builds houses, or works in a factory or some other type of physically demanding job that they hate, and at the end of the day they dream of winning that jackpot in an online casino.

Winning the grand prize and making enough money to put a nice roof over their kids heads, put the kids in a good school, money for college. This is exactly what the American dream is about.

Many Americans work 2 or more jobs a day to support their families, and have no way to get to a casino, they just do not have the time to get there. Does that mean that they should not be allowed to follow their dreams because they have to do it from home?

This is like telling a new immigrant that the American Dream has been outlawed because you may squander you money trying to achieve it.

What if a hard working man saved up some money and decided he wanted to open a restaurant and the government told him no, because the restaurant business is dangerous and most new restaurants fail within the first 6 months.

The law making online gambling illegal is a direct blow to why most of our grandparents moved to the United States.

The entire idea of the American dream is to be able to do better in life then the cards you have been dealt, just like in poker you are dealt your cards then after looking at them you have the chance to exchange your bad cards for better ones. The ability for a child from poor family to be able to get a good education and to make more of himself then the generation before him did.

Many people around the world are dealt a bad hand in life, but the American dream helps them rise above it to make what before may have seemed impossible become an every day occurrence.

Pure and simple the American dream gives hope to people who never expected to have hope again, and online casinos give people the same thing. The hope to improve their lives, and to deny people that chance is like putting a sign up for new immigrants to the USA saying Sorry The Dream is Over Please go home.

Hotels: How to Get Free Gifts

Planning to visit Las Vegas or any other vacational resort where casinos are a major portion of their business? I have just the thing for you. Here, I will show you how to pass off as a High Roller and collect many complimentary items and gifts.

What is the Secret?
The Secret is that you have to make them believe you are rich and love gambling. In short you have to impersonate a High Roller.

Hotels love high rollers because these players leave behind thousands of dollars each visit. And the real cool part about this is that if you act the role, casinos will lavish you with the same gifts and complimentary items that a real High Roller would receive.

How ?
It is not that difficult to fool the hotel and resorts with some finesse and true self-confidence. It can be done.

1) The Way you Dress:
Elegant and smart is the way to go. Opt out of the baseball cap, t-shirt and jeans. Try and wear a suit or at least a regular buttoned shirt with an elegant dark jacket. It was Shakespeare who said that the clothes maketh a man, and so too, when going to a hotel resort. They judge you according to how you dress, so dress according to the role.

2) A Large Pad of Notes:
Yes. Just like in the movies. Carry a large bundle of notes with you and keep them in plain sight. You do not have to really take with you that much. Instead, take a few notes and place them at the top and at the bottom of real note-size paper cuttings. Just remember to never expose this while you are in the casino. Use other notes you’re your wallet instead. But do it nonchalantly so that none of the casino personnel will notice.

3) Always Flash Your Notes Around: No matter where you go, whether its to the hotel restaurant for lunch or for to the bar. They will be watching. From time to time, use that money to play at a range of table games or video game and bet some of that money. Remember you must use some of your money to play but just do not use all of it.

4) Play Complicated Games:
This is one of the more problematic things to do and requires some training at home. Learn on your own how to lay and how to bet on the high rolling games such as roulette, baccarat and craps. You could also play poker or Texas holdem in one of the larger ante tables, but in any case stick to your plan and you will soon reap the flowers.

Above, I have outlined some of the more practical methods by which one can save money by receiving gifts from the casino. These gifts range from casino comps (free money to play), room deals that can get nearly free and many others such as free drinks, clothes, coupon to stores in Las Vegas and many more. Note that what you are doing here is completely legal provided you don't take up a false name or falsify your passport card.

In addition, there are now some news and entertainment publications that are geared towards a teenaged audience specifically. Of course, some parents shy away from these types of publications because they do not deem them to be educational per se. While there might be some truth to that point in regard to entertainment publications, a teenager that has access to one or another of these publications nonetheless is spending time reading … which is an educational experience in and of itself. Studies have clearly demonstrated that if a teenager enjoys what he or she is reading, that child will read more and more.

In looking for magazine subscriptions for a teenager, you might want to spend some time shopping around on the Internet and World Wide Web. By spending some time on the Net, you can find out what specifically is available in the way of magazine subscriptions for teenagers at this point in time. In addition, you easily can order one or another -- or a combination of different -- subscriptions for your teenaged child. Additionally, by ordering online, you may be able to save some money on your magazine subscription for your teenaged child.

What is Anonymous Surfing?

What Anonymous Surfing Is

People who have concerns about privacy issues that arise from surfing the web are not without a means
to fix the problem. Anonymous surfing allows users to surf the web from any computer and hide their identity such as IP address, location (city/state/country), and browser information. It also allows employees to surf from their work PC while protecting the company's computer information. Anonymous surfing can protect the user from being identified as having surfed the web when they're not supposed to for example from their place of employment. Some of the Anonymous Surfing services will hide user's URL's along with their website traffic. The information is hidden within a Virtual Private Network. This is very effective when people use broadband and went to ensure nobody can peruse their personal information.

Additional Provisions of Anonymous Surfing

Anonymous surfing not only provides privacy protection it gives users a host of other bonuses. Pop-ups become a thing of the past since anonymous surfing often blocks them. Also, users don't have to be concerned with cookies and home-page hijackings because many anonymous surfing sites take care of them.

Ordering Online Roses Provide Fast Delivery & Convenience

If you want to send flowers, online roses may be just the ticket. Many major florists offer the convenience of ordering online roses directly from their website and having them delivered anywhere, which is especially convenient if you need delivery in another state or even time zone.

When you order online roses, you will have the opportunity to view different gift and/or arrangement options, select a delivery time and date, add text to the gift card and much more. In addition, ordering online roses will offer the shopper an opportunity to receive instant confirmation of their order and even print a receipt if needed.

When you order online roses, the parent company will process the order and contact one of their florists in the local delivery area. At that time, the customer service representative will relay your order to a florist who will then send the roses out for delivery.

There are many reasons that someone may order online roses, including a long distance relationship that needs rekindling or a congratulatory message from across the miles. Anytime is the perfect time for roses to show up unexpectedly and ordering online roses is the best way to make that happen if you live miles away from the recipient.

Online roses are just the same as any that would be found locally in a floral shop, including red, white, pink, yellow, etc. A rose arrangement is commonly delivered with baby’s breath and may be delivered in a white box with red ribbon or in a clear vase with a decorative red bow.

If you decide to order online roses, make sure that you purchase from a reputable company that is well known. This is especially important if you are providing your personal financial information. The best way to learn about a company’s reputation is to check their record with the Better Business Bureau’s website, which allows visitors to search by company name, telephone number or even website address.

Once your order for online roses is placed, make a followup call to ensure that your order was received and will be delivered according to your instruction. It is important to provide a physical address for delivery and not a post office address. In some instances, directions may be needed. If you do not have the exact directions because the recipient lives in another state, the florist can call to confirm their location. In order for this to be effective, however, you will need to provide a telephone number of the recipient if directions are needed.

How to Prepare for a Long Flight

The first thing I like to do is to get as little sleep as possible the night before I fly, this way by the time I get to the plane I can hopefully just go to sleep and wake up at my destination. I only recommend this if you are able to perform any tasks you need to do before your flight. If you have to drive for 5 hrs first you may want to get a good night sleep, and maybe take some Tylenol pm or something else to make you drowsy. Many people like to get a little drunk on a flight, I am not one of them, but if it helps you relax and get some sleep then I say go for it, just don’t allow yourself to drink to the point where you become an obnoxious drunk on a plane.

My next tip is to get to the airport 3 hours in advance, this is for 2 reasons. By getting there so early I am always one of if not the first to actually check in for my flight, which usually gets me a good seat, and I don’t have to wait in long lines. The other reason for always getting t the Air port at least 3 hrs before your flight is, if you check in early you cant get bumped from the plane, the people who get there last minute sometime here the words overbooked.

Things to pack in your carry on:

When ever possible I try to avoid putting things under the plane, but sometimes it is unavoidable, depending on how long I am going away for. What you take with you on the plane can make a big difference between having a pleasant flight and being so unbelievable bored that you go mad.

I always make sure to bring a fully charged MP3 player, my MP3 player hold 20 gigs of music so I never have to go into my bag to chance a CD or a memory card, and I have way more music to listen to then time to listen to it. This way I have the music for any mood I may be in, so I just load it up and listen as I fall asleep on the plane.

Just incase I cant sleep I will also make sure to bring a book with me, if for whatever reason I can not fall asleep which does happen to me, I like to take my mind off things by getting lost in a good story, but something light and entertaining, I have always found a good Action book or even Science Fiction to be good for that.

I also recommend bringing a thick soft sweater with you on the plane, this can be used if it is cold on the plane, or you can use it as an extra pillow.

I like to play video games, so I travel with one of the new hand held video games everywhere I go, so if I am not in the mood for reading I can play some games and keep myself occupied, and that really is the key. Keep yourself busy on the plane and you will be amazed at how fast the flight goes, if you stare at the clock and focus on the planes progress it will feel like forever.

The Benefits Of Using An Online People Finder Service

Whether you are looking to reconnect with a former love, searching for old friends or trying to locate a family member, an online people finder service can provide you with a variety of resources to help accomplish your goal. Depending on the type of service and the company offering it, some online people finder resources are free and others are available for a small fee.

For many, finding someone can be a daunting task and the hope often seems to diminish with each passing moment. Prior to the internet, individuals were limited in the way that they could attempt to locate someone. Today, that is no longer the case thanks to online people finder services, which help individuals around the globe to conduct online people finder searches every single day.

Among the most popular reasons for using a people finder service include an upcoming family or high school reunion, the hopes of reconnecting with a long lost love or former friend and sending special announcements and/or notices.

As it pertains to a family reunion, many individuals use a people finder service if their family is planning a reunion and some relatives have moved and/or lost touch with everyone. An online people finder service can help to find updated contact information for these family members so that they can be contacted about the upcoming reunion.

A people finder service is very popular when it comes to planning a high school reunion. Approximately every 10 years, high school classmates get together and talk about the old days. After graduation, most people go to college, get married and some even start working immediately. It sometimes will become necessary to relocate and often it is impossible to keep in touch with former classmates. When reunion time rolls around, every student is contacted by phone, mail or otherwise with an invitation to attend. At this point, it is necessary that the individual(s) responsible for planning the reunion have all of the updated contact information on former classmates, which is why an online people finder service is so beneficial.

And finally, one of the most popular reasons to use an online people finder is for personal reasons. Many want to reconnect with a former love and others simply want to get back in touch with an old friend. Perhaps it’s for reasons of closure on a relationship, things that were left unsaid or just a simple contact to say ‘hello,’ all of which an online people finder service can help to make a reality.

Popular Uses For An Online Dictionary

An online dictionary is convenient for many reasons, including the desire to have the access to a complete dictionary set without all of the clutter. Many people use an online dictionary every day and for many purposes. Among them, homework, job-related research, legal and medical research, etc. This article is geared at showing everyone just how useful an online dictionary can be and, even if you don’t have the space for a real set, the next best thing is just a click away.

As our children come home from school with tons of books and even more homework, we want to help make their learning process as convenient as possible. In order to do that, many parents allow their children to use the internet for the purpose of conducting research with the help of an online dictionary. With it’s use, a child’s homework will be better prepared and the child will be more knowledgeable about the subject than if they were to be without the convenience of an online dictionary.

Every day, news stories are covered and articles are written. Many professional writers and journalists turn toward an online dictionary for research purposes. Every writer gets an assignment that he/she is not completely familiar with from time to time, which is why an online dictionary can prove to be very valuable in their work. By familiarizing themselves with a specific term, they will sometimes gain the knowledge that will help to produce a quality read.

Individuals who suffer from undiagnosed medical problems, or simply are concerned with certain symptoms that they may be having, often turn to an online dictionary for answers. Many listings for current known illnesses and diseases are included in every online dictionary, which helps the individual to become more familiar with an ailment and it’s symptoms. In some cases, information relating to treatment may also be made available. This approach will create a much more informed patient and one who is active in his/her own medical care.

As a final thought to the many uses of an online dictionary, there are no limits to the reasons that an individual could use one. From research to homework and even medical terminology, the online dictionary is literally like having a complete set of hardback books in your very own hands. That is, without all of the page flipping, paper cuts and heavy lifting. An online dictionary is not only a convenience, but it’s nutrition for your brain in a way that knowledge should be.

How To Boost Your Airbrush Art Business With Craft Fairs & The Internet

Airbrush art is a popular form of artistic expression in the world and it is also one of the most profitable. An artist is not just someone who picks up a pen or a paintbrush, but can also be someone who is capable of creating images through the use of airbrush art. Using a spraying device, art is created using an airbrush effect that sprays the paint onto a surface. Airbrush art can be controlled by the pressure the artist applies to the spray device or by how close he/she is to the surface when spraying.

Each year, airbrush art professionals showcase their latest works of art at craft shows. Depending on the location, craft fairs are usually held in celebration of an upcoming holiday and/or season. If an airbrush artist wishes to enter their work, he/she must pay a registration fee in order to confirm their booth at the show. Most craft fairs are held at shopping malls, along parade routes, at state fairs or holiday celebrations. In addition, many beautiful pieces of airbrush art are featured online.

With a virtual airbrush art gallery, visitors will have the opportunity to view different sizes and varieties of artin all styles. Airbrush art is commonly found on t-shirts, license plates and other displays. But, it can also be found on canvas, just as acrylic or oil paintings.

Whether your are buying or selling airbrush art, the internet is a virtual haven for original artwork. Internet auctions are a haven for customers seeking art of all types, from the traditional to the one-of-a-kind. In exchange for listing an auction, sellers will have the opportunity to have their airbrush art seen by customers around the world.

The internet also provides a way for airbrush art to be shown on a website or created as part of a freelance work assignment. There are a number of companies who are constantly in search of a customized logo and may consider airbrush art as a possible option. In addition, magazine and newspaper editors regularly publish original airbrush art and are actively seeking artists capable of submitting quality material. Many comic strip artists are syndicated, but freelancers may find success in self-syndication through contacting the editors and selling their work directly.

Individuals who create airbrush art should do so in a well-ventilated area. In addition, artists should wear protective eye wear to prevent the misting effect of airbrush art from getting into their eyes.

How to get back in shape

Before starting to work out make sure you get a full physical from your doctor and a letter stating it is ok for you to do physical activity. Many gym and aerobic centers will require this before letting you start.

Depending on how long it has been since you last did regular exercise it is recommended that you start off slow and gradually build up your workout to harder levels.

It is generally recommended to start off at the gym with just the treadmill and the lifecycle for the first week or 2. This is to wake the muscles up and to slowly get you prepared for a harder workout.

You will generally want to find a speed on the treadmill that is a pace you can keep up with little discomfort and do it for 20 minutes. After this take a 5 minute break, stretch a little and have a drink of water, then go back and increase the speed just a bit then do another 20.

Remember that pushing yourself too far is taking a gamble that you may not be able to live with. In a casino you can put everything you have on the roulette table and maybe you win and maybe you lose, but in the gym if you push too hard you can die, so take things slowly.

Many people make the mistake of getting back into an exercise program and going all gung ho an trying to get back in shape in just one hour, well let me tell you this will not work. The only thing this will do is make you very sore the next day and you will not be able to workout that day, and it will make you lose interest fast in the gym. Discomfort in ok pain is not.

Depending on how long it has been since you last worked out, I recommend working out 4 or 5 days a week. This may seem like a lot but if you were trying to win a poker tournament you would go to a casino or an online casino and poker room to practice almost every day right? So you will have to do the same with the gym.

Working out 5 days a week does not necessarily mean you have to go to the gym every day. I recommend the gym 3 times a week and the other day or 2 you can just go for a long fast paced walk around your neighborhood. Try to vary the things you do so that you do not work out the same parts of your body 2 days in a row.

Most professionals will tell you that if you work out your arms and chest on a Monday do not exercise those muscles again for at least 48 hours. This is to give the muscles time to heal and grow. It is this straining and resting of the muscle that makes it grow not just the working it out. If all you did every day was work the same muscle group in a few days the muscle would be more likely to tear in a painful experience and the only thing you will be able to do for several months will be playing in an online casino from your laptop in bed.

How I Make Money Online

Nothing beats the excitement you feel when you first start to make money online. Ever since I got my first computer I had dreamed of owning a web site that would make money for me.

My motivation has always been simple. I want the freedom to live life on my own terms.To be able to do what I want when I feel like it. I want to feel the security of having a regular income. And, finally I want the spending power to be able to buy what I want and go where I want. Not much to ask.

I now know that I went by the long route when I set out to learn how to make money online. I wasted an enromous amount of time, energy and money on learning things I didn’t need to know and doing things that are a complete waste of time.

The most annoying thing of all was that the know-it-alls who are reaping the amazing rewards of their success are so poor at showing others how they do it. However, they are very good at charging a lot for their information and then making it hard to understand what they mean. So I made up my mind early on that I would never charge for any information that I pass on to others about how to make money online.

Here are the lessons that I have learned. I consider that they are the real secrets of making money online.

First, start with a niche market. I know this is different from how people do things in the real world, but in cyber space this is the best place to start. The easiest way is to pick on a group of people just like you. People with whom you share a problem.

Second, find a product that solves their problem. There are millions of them out there. I show my students how to find them on my free diploma course.

Third, build a really simple, one page web site. Your site only needs to offer a product that solves a problem to the people with the problem.

Fourth, drive traffic to that web site.

Imagine my excitement when, by simply applying this formula, I started receiving e-mails saying: “Congratulations, you just made a sale!”

The excitement grew when I went to my online bank account and saw the money sitting there, right under my name.

And the excitement reached fever pitch when the ‘congratulations’ e-mails started coming in ever-increasing numbers.

My advice is simple; don’t wait, use the simple formula I’ve outlined above to build yourself a web site today. Let me show you how. I promise that you will feel massively uplifted when you too start to make money online.

Placement of Adsense Ads – Location, Location, Location

Once you have made the decision to use Google Adsense, you need to consider where to place the ads on your pages. Much like real estate, it is all about location, location, location.

Placement of Adsense Ads – Location, Location, Location

First off, you will not make $500,000 a year with Google Adsense if you have one site with 30 pages and 30 people visiting it a day. The people offering eBooks and memberships to that end are full of…stuff. Google Adsense is a program that produces over time or if you have a lot of visitors or sites. Now that I have burst your bubble, let me offer some advice on ways to do well with Google Adsense.

The single most critical step to making money with Adsense is the location of the ads. Most people put them down the right column or up at the top. This approach is dead wrong because of something known as ad blindness. Ad blindness occurs when you look at the same format over and over. In the case of the net, most people unconsciously filter out the ads on the top, right column and bottom of a page. After looking at hundreds of sites and results on search engines, they know those listings are advertisements. You, my friend, must avoid ad blindness.

The best way to get past ad blindness is to put the ads in unexpected places. In this case, you want to place them between the paragraphs of text on your site. Few sites due this, which is pretty surprising. This placement is perfect for maximizing clicks because it is in the natural flow of the text. Readers will inevitably read the text ads and click anything they might be interested in. This conclusion is also supported by the fact that people do not read the entire article or page on a site. They usually only make it through 50 to 80 percent because they find out what they want. If you place ads at the bottom of the page, they are never going to see them.

The second biggest issue is the type and color of the ads. First, try to stick to text link ads whenever possible. Nobody clicks banners because they are worried about getting caught in popup hell. As to color, some believe your ads should stand out while others believe they should blend in. Personally, I am with the blend in group. I try to make my ads blend into the overall color of the site and it seems to work fairly well.

Adding Adsense to your site is simple, but should be done with some thought. Avoid the top, bottom and right column of the pages. Try to place the java script in between paragraphs of text and experiment with different colors to see how it does. Ultimately, you will find a solution that returns solid click thru rates and generates revenues month after month, year after year.

Many articles supply answers, but here I do not. Here, I ask the questions. If you want to rack your brains for finding the answers to these life conundrums. But, I warn you. Beware. These are not easy, and though somewhat hilarious and funny, they are real and true to life.

Should I begin? Ok, here I go:

1) How come Tarzan has no bears even though he grows up with wolves in the jungle?

2) Why does glue not stick to the insides of the tube or can that it comes in?

3) Why do they use sterile injections when executing someone who is condemned to death?

4) Why do we press down harder and harder or the remote controls even though we know that the batteries are low?

5) Why is it that when someone hits us in the ankles with his supermarket trolley and then appologizes, do we say that everything is ok? I mean, things are not really fine. Why is it that we do not say that it hurts?

6) Why is it that whatever the color of the bath soap, the bubbles are always white?

7) Why is it that you will never find a day when mattresses are not on sale?

8) Why is it that online casinos always offer big prize money for their tournaments but never reveal the real name of the winner after the competition is over?

9) If human beings evolved from monkeys, why is it that there still are monkeys?

10) Why did the Japanese Kamikaze pilots wear helmets during the second World War?

11) Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest but, then, duck when the empty gun is thrown at him.

12) Why do banks charge a commission when you go into debt even though they know that there is no money in that account?

13) Why do people go back again and again to the refrigerator hoping that something new to eat will appear there?

14) Why do people move their vacuum cleaner over a thin thread lying on the floor, bend down, pick it up, examine it, and then, place it on the floor again and move the vacuum over it again?

15) Why do people believe it when they are told that there are more than four billion stars, but when they see a sign that says wet paint, they have to touch and check?

16) Why does a plastic bag not open at the end where you first try to open it?

17) Why do you never hear jokes about father in laws?

18) Why are there dead insects inside enclosed electric lamps?

19) Why is it that in winter we try and keep the house as warm as it was during the summer when back in the summer we hated the heat?

20) Why is it that every time you try and catch something that is about to fall off the table, you always hit something else and drop that instead?

Life has many oddities and conundrums: some funny, some less. I have mentioned but a few. Think of more? Send them to me.

Reciprocal Link Exchange Strategy

A good link exchange strategy is not about how many link exchanges you can make and how quickly you can make them.

It's all about picking and choosing quality exchanges in order to.

1. Help increase traffic to your site
2. Help more of your directory pages get listed in search engines
3. Increase the Page Rank of your website.

When I'm asked what's the best affordable method to get a website noticed, I recommend Reciprocal Link Exchanges.

I compare a good Link Exchange Strategy to that of Sowing and growing seeds.

Prepare the soil, plant the seeds, provide nutrients to grow, maintain daily, and watch them grow.

- Prepare the soil.
Your website must first be ready to market, do not initiate a link exchange with your site under construction. Ensure it is ready for visitors before you begin to request link exchanges.

-Plant the seeds
Have an organized directory setup, linked from your main page, accessible to search engines and easy for your link partners to find. Remember quality link exchange is mutually beneficial, ensure you maintain the True Reciprocal Link principals in place when requesting and exchanging links.

-Water the seedlings
Surf the net, in search for quality sites to exchange links with. Quality Counts, I will exchange links with a new quality content site with PR 0 but not with a that is just loaded with unnecessary links affiliate links and a PR4. Quality Counts, in the long run that site that is maintaining their website, will increase their PR, and depending on how their rank their link exchanges, you have a good chance to be on a page with a good PR. So never prejudge the potential of a new site.

-Maintain Daily
Spend a little time each day to exchange a link or two. It's not about how many link exchanges you can make and how quickly you can build your directory. It's about selecting quality websites, holding the True Reciprocal Link principals in order to make it a valuable exchange for you.

-Watch it Grow
Slowly, over the next few weeks, and months, you'll notice more traffic, you'll notice other webmasters finding your site and requesting exchanges with you, and you'll notice an increase in your PR. All this doesn't happen overnight, consistency counts. Try to take time every day to make a few quality link exchanges and you'll see how this will benefit your site in a few months.

Slow and steady wins the race!

How to Plan the Perfect Spring Break Family Vacation

From time to time everyone needs some time away from their life. It does not matter if you are 10 years old and in 5th grade or 35 years old and working a full time job, to maintain good mental health you have to take the occasional vacation.

Some time around the beginning of April most public and private schools have Spring Break from School which is a great time to plan a vacation.

Most vacations when you have children become about them, and you wind up at places like Disney land or some other child orientated vacation spot, but what about you?

Las Vegas used to be known as an adult getaway where what happens there stays there. This is no longer the case. Over the past 15 years, Las Vegas realized that more money can be made from a family orientated city rater then just from gambling.

Many casinos started adding attractions for children like go carts and other amusements, and many other activities aimed at giving a child a good time, but the casinos also opened up day care centers, so parents can get some time to enjoy themselves as well.

I know when I would go to Disney World with my kids after the 2nd or 3rd day I was looking forward to getting back to work.

For the last several years we have been going to Las Vegas for our family Vacations over spring break and the kids enjoy it. They get to go on roller coasters, swim, play video games, watch movie the list really goes on and on for all the things they can do, and I get to spend a few hours ever day with my wife in the spa getting a message, eating in nice restaurants and playing some Blackjack in the casinos.

Since we started doing this I have seen my family grow closer. My wife noticed that I am in a better mood for the rest of the year after we get back from vacation. I am enjoying my job more and all in all life is just better.

Putting together a Los Vegas vacation is very simple to do. You can go to a travel agent, or do it yourself online. I have always preferred to go to a travel agent and just let them do it, but if you are trying to save money you can get some good deals online that a travel agent can't or won't offer you.

If you choose to do it yourself, it is easy to do. You can go to your computer and do a search for Las Vegas. You will see every casinos and hotel listed and you can go thru them one at a time and see what they offer for you and your family to do.

You will also see everything the city and surrounding areas have to offer, and there really are tons of fun things for everyone in Las Vegas.

I hope to see you and your family there.

Keywords, Content And Copywriting

Today WebPages must compete for survival just like animals in the wild. Natural selection isn’t just a concept limited to Mother Nature. Even in the world of cyberspace there is a “law of the jungle”. Search engine optimization or (SEO) lies at the core of this law. Many skills must be mastered to rise to the top. Three important ones are keywords, content and copywriting. Let’s begin with the first of the three.

Keywords are extremely important because they act as a marker for search engines. Keywords can be placed anywhere on a website. Besides being noticed they must be carefully selected. You must take care to choose keywords that are not only relevant to your site but also that are likely to be used by those who are searching for what is on your site. Several things must be taken into account. Variations in spelling of the keywords as well as spelling errors can conceivably drive traffic to your site. The links in your site are a vitally important spot to place keywords because not only will they be noticed by search engines but they will also direct people to the other pages on your site thus increasing your ranking.

Content is the second factor here. Beyond the obvious fact that the content of your site is what people are going to read when they get to your site the content is the larger aspect of keywords. The keywords may be the specific point that a search may target but the better your content in both amount but quality the easier it will be to place you keywords. Imbedding keywords in content is one way to get them spotted by search engines but good content will force you to have good keywords. As it has been said the best way to hide something is in plain sight.

To better facilitate the use of the aforementioned factors you must understand copyright concepts. Certain things can be copyrighted and certain things can’t. Slogans, titles, names and related items can’t be copyrighted although titles can be trademarked. One important thing to keep in mind is how you use something. The context of how you use a word or phrase or what have you can violate a copyright or not. Copyright in many areas is tricky so be careful. Things created by the government are free domain as well as donated items or things people give permission to use by other people for any purpose.

Learn the rules before you play the game.
