Even with all of the buzz out there and the interest in holding the best and newest equipment, the value on antiques only seems to increase as time goes on. There’s nothing that’s quite as nice as that rustic, handmade dining room table, or that vintage china cabinet. Antique furniture can make even modernly designed rooms look spectacular, by adding that one element that brings the room together and makes people talk.
Often, people gather antiques from older relatives that have passed pieces along. Sometimes people are looking to get rid of furniture that is just adding too much bulk to their space, so don’t be afraid to ask! Often, you can acquire these pieces for free by just offering to move them!
Don’t have an older relative that can pass some antique furniture your way? Here are some tips on how to get that antique furniture you’ve been dreaming about:
- Simply purchase it. Many furniture stores are aware of the antiquing trend, and sell antiques or make pieces that look as if they are antiques. The downside to this method is that they can often be expensive. If you have the budget, investing in an antique can really be worth your while, as antiques often only increase in value through time.

This summer, I had the most amazing experience one could imagine. I went to Australia. I have been telling myself I would go there for years, but I have always found one reason or another to put it off. Finally I got the gumption to go out and do it. I did a lot of research and planned out my trip to see as much as possible. The trip was every bit as magnificent as I had hoped; I went scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, hiking in the outback, and tried many different foods (I don’t recommend the vegemite). Surprisingly though, out of all the magnificent sights to see, there is one that I would recommend hands down. Hot Air Ballooning! Hot Air Balooning Brisbane offers rides that start in the morning and last a couple hours. When I say morning, I really mean it. Since the hours just after sunrise are much cooler than the middle of the day, the winds are more predictable and steady. This makes it the optimal time to launch a hot air balloon.
There is something wonderful about seeing the countryside from 4500 feet in the air. The distance and direction you travel depends on the wind speed and weather. You have no choice but to let fate decide where your adventure will take you! The balloon doesn’t have the capability to steer into a direction, but it can control the height of travel, taking advantage of different wind speeds at different heights. Continue reading

After using the Dyson DC28 animal for over a year, I feel I can give a solid opinion of this product. First of all, the entire body is made of plastic. Don’t be fooled, this thing is pretty high quality and I haven’t had any problems with parts breaking.
Doing the Job
The most common interest in any vacuum is, “does it do the job?”. In the case of the Dyson DC 28, I can say that it does do the job, and it does very well. We have 3 dogs in the house so there is a lot of hair and occasional accidents. The DC 28 does a great job of getting the hair off of the carpet and tile. As far as accidents are concerned, the Dyson is very helpful in combination with some scrubbing and Oxyclean.
The DC28 has a disconnect on the handle part which can be used to vacuum tight areas such as the inside of a smaller closet or behind the couch. This part of the vacuum also comes with a few attachments for different purposes. One of the attachments is a flat piece that sticks very close to the surface when used. It is very effective and seems to enhance the sucking power of the vacuum. Another attachment is a narrow angled piece which can be used for very tight spaces. Continue reading
Look at your cigarette, now at my vaporizer, now back to your cigarette, now back to my vaporizer. Sadly, your cigarette is not my vaporizer. Breathe in, breathe out; Where are you? You’re on a mountain, with the taste your tobacco could taste like. What’s in your hand? Back at me; I have it. It’s a cigarette, with a puff of smoke. The smoke is now invisible. Anything is possible when your tobacco tastes like clean air, and not tar. I’m on a horse.
Okay. Enough Old Spic commercial parodies
For some of you who smoke forms of tobacco, you may notice that the deeper you breathe while smoking, the more irritating the smoke can be to your lungs. For some people this is more bothersome than for others. Newer smokers, especially, are bothered by the impurities in the smoke. Interestingly enough, many people don’t know that there are other options. Physically burning tobacco works to allow the nicotine to go into the lungs. The gas you breathe in, however is a mixture of carbon, air, nicotine and hundreds of other chemicals depending on the form you smoke it in. Vaporizers like the trippy stick have become increasingly popular as a way to control what you are breathing into your lungs.
Short of owning a tobacco farm like Homer Simpson, it’s one of the best ways to limit the detriment to your body while getting a bit of a buzz. The principles by which a vaporizer works are fairly simple. Many different things have a temperature at which they interact with oxygen to do what we know as burning. Paper for instance is 451 degrees. The goal is to avoid reaching the burning temperature but still take advantage of the ability of things to evaporate. The plant or herb (used for cooking as well) is heated to a temperature just sufficient to cause the active ingredients to turn from a liquid to a gas. The gas is the inhaled (sometimes through a water filter) or concentrated, so that the maximum benefit with a decreased detriment (taste, carcinogens) is achieved. The result is a cleaner gas that is more concentrated and less irritating to the lungs. It’s also a good way to avoid setting off any pesky smoke detectors in your house.
So if you are looking for a great way to enjoy smoking without the burning effect you should look into vaporizers. They work in favor of your health since they eliminate the burning effect of smoking. This protects your lungs from the harmful substances that are released with a burn.
