My Gift Was Part Ownership in One of the Racehorse Syndicates

My brother wanted us to go in together as part of one of the racehorse syndicates for us to own a racehorse. He has always kept me and him in competition for the coolest birthday gifts that are also affordable. I have thought up a lot of things to get him over the years, but he sure beat me with the idea to have us be part owners of a racing horse. The syndicates are neat in that you can go in with many others to have a portion of ownership in a very valuable racing thoroughbred.

Now my brother and I are part owner along with many others of a racehorse who is competing and winning. The really neat thing is the value of your investment for a winning horse. Read more »

Fashionable Clothes for People Like Me

I am not the type of person to follow a trend simply because others are doing it. I have my own style, and I refuse to compromise myself at all, even in regards to fashion. I don’t like the stores in my hometown that sell clothing because it is either too conservative or just trying too hard to be trendy. Some of my friends wear these clothes, but I just cannot bring myself to buy something that I’m just not feeling. I did a search online for Festival Fashion hoping to find some really cool fashion outlets, and I found the only one that matters to me now. Read more »

Pike o’ Stickle from Loft Crag

    The graceful cone and dome of Pike o’ Stickle (2323 ft) overlooks the valley of Mickleden far below with the high fells heading towards the Scafell group in the distance. Scafell Pike itself, nearly free of cloud, just peeks through to the left of Esk Pike (see notes).

    Taken in very windy conditions from the summit of Loft Crag.

  2. Lake O’Hara Panorama

    taken from All Soul Prospect’s view point.

    As a last picture from Lake O’Hara (at least for now) here comes a "small" overview of the valley. Thanks for all your comments, I hope you all had a good time looking at the pictures of this special place. I certainly did when going back there through those pictures.

    If you are ever around Yoho, you really should try to visit Lake O’Hara, even if it is a bit of a hassle to get into. You either need to get a reservation for the bus well in advance, or hike in and hope to be lucky enough to find a vacant camp site. (Otherwise you’ll only have a couple of hours to spend until the last bus leaves ).

    But the area around the lake is truly magnificent and worth every bit of the effort. If you have a whole day there, do the alpine circuit. I put notes in the panorama above that show where some of the photos were taken, most of them along that trail. Even after having seen many other spectacular places the weeks before, some spots on that day hike just left me speechless.

A Coach for Our Church Ladies

The ladies in my church meet twice a month. We study scripture and pray for one another during these meetings, but we also have some amazing fellowship. We usually have our meetings at church, but now and again we will take a road trip somewhere. That started because of an idea my sister had about a year ago. She did an online search for coach hire in Swindon because she wanted to see if there were any coaches that would hold all of the ladies at a price that would not bust the bank.

She found a company that is run by a family that seems to hold the same values that we do. They have an impressive fleet, which means that we can get a smaller coach if only a handful of ladies want to go somewhere or we can get a large one if there are a lot more who want to go on a particular outing. The outing that my sister organized was a shopping trip with dinner included. She figured we all needed to have a day out away from the husbands, kids, pets, and other daily things that we devote the majority of our time to.

When she told us the information she had gathered during one of our meetings, everyone was really enthusiastic about it. If it is a local event, we just drive there. If it is at least 30 minutes away or longer, then we will hire one of the coaches. This makes our day trips a lot more fun since we get to spend the entire day together, even the traveling portion. Since we have a reliable driver who is extremely cautious, we get to focus on just having fun with one another. We usually go somewhere like this every other month or so, and it is always a welcome relief!

So How Much Does Something Like This Cost?

Of course I am not against high quality sex toys in any way or shape, but I do wonder how much a thing like that is actually worth. I judge the value of thing based on it's effectiveness and in this case this is a sort of tool, albeit a tool with pleasure in it's objective. At any rate I was curious as to what they charge for this sort of thing in other place. This thing I was looking at is called the Tiani 2.0 and it is supposedly based on some earlier version that won an award called a Red Dot. I had to look that up, it is a real thing which is bsed in Germany. It seems as though when you look it up they talk about Bose, Porsche, Siemens, Lenovo and those sorts of brands, but no one seems to mention this sex toy. Apparently they have a lot of categories for their contest. There are 31 categories, that falls under the 12th Leisure, games and fun.

I am just wondering how good a couple's massager needs to be before you pay a hundred and sixty dollars for it. In fact this site sells a lot of expensive lingerie and some massage oils, along with some other sex toys in this same price range. My guess is that if it works, then the woman might think it would be worth a good bit of money. It is for her pleasure and she is supposed to wear this thing during sexual intercourse (I could not say exactly how without looking it up really. I can not really tell, although I suspect that it might go in some place in particular. I guess that you can find a youtube video on the topic if you look hard.

Is It Wrong for Men to Buy Women Gifts?

There is no doubt that a sheer crop top looks good on women. As a guy, I feel like that my saying that is somehow sexist. I don't feel like it's a sexist statement as it merely presents that I appreciate and even enjoy the way that it might look on a woman. Is there something wrong with that? Is my appreciation of the female figure somehow disrespectful to all females in general? I'd like to think that it isn't and I'd like to also think that maybe we're too caught up in this idea of genderism in the United States.

Clothing is just that. Clothing. There's no reason for a guy to not be able to gift a woman clothing. I think the majority of the time it's just seen that males have no sense of taste but as a guy who grew up with a mom and very little in the way of male influence, I quickly learned the importance of looking good in clothing. I believe that I have a good eye when it comes to clothes which is why I am often giving my women friends clothing as gifts. I never had a complaint until recently.

I thought her belief that I was giving her a sheer top to be sexualizing her was absolutely ridiculous. There's no way that I was sexualizing her - I just knew that she would look good in it! It's not like she doesn't have some of her own as I've seen her wearing them from time to time, which is exactly why I knew to get one in the first place. She was so insulted that she gave back the gift, asking me to not speaking with her until she was able to cool down from being so insulted by my choice. Wow!

Feeling the Pain Now to Prevent It Later

When I turned 30, I thought I was fine. I thought I was in pretty good shape but when I started being unable to get up in the morning without achy joints, I quickly realized that i was going to have to do something about it. I will freely admit that I am a very vain kind of guy. When I started to feel those achy joints I realized that age was finally beginning to set in, well, I'm sure you can imagine how hard it hit me. I called a Canary Wharf Personal Trainer a week later as I recognized it wasn't going to stop.

It's difficult to admit to yourself that there is no way you're going to be able to 'beat' age. Without a doubt age is a factor that we can't do anything about. Age is going to cause us to grow weaker over the years, set into our bones and our joints until we're struggling to get out of bed. I've watched my parents go through it and I refuse to let it happen to me on the level that it happened to them - they never did any kind of exercising and now they're paying for it.

I don't want to pay for it. I don't want to struggle through those twilight years and I will do everything that I can as long as I have the power to do so in order to prevent it from happening. The personal trainer has been pushing me hard but it's totally worth it - I know that the pain that I am experiencing now is going to spare me the pain of having to deal with this later. Every bead of sweat, every aching muscle, every moment that I am out of breath is the best thing that I can do for myself.

Top Quality Training for Race Horses

I have just purchased a young horse, that has a good pedigree, and I think that it could grow up to be a champion racing horse one day. I want to find a trainer of race horses, so that it can be trained to be in races from an early age, and hopefully, become the champion that I think it can become one day.

I spent a lot of time looking at different lineages, before deciding to buy this horse. I really like the pedigree of both its mother, and its father. My wife was trying to get me to purchase a different horse, but her reasons for wanting the other horse were kind of silly in my estimation. I thought that they were not really good reasons, and as such, I decided to make the decision on my own.

I have never owned a race horse before, so this is very exciting for me. I think that it will be a great opportunity, and maybe I will make some money off of it one day. I like the idea of being able to bet on a horse that I actually own. I have always enjoyed going to horse races, and betting on them. It is a love that I learned from my father, who often watched horse races, and took me to some when I was little. He never owned a horse, but he always dreamed of it. Unfortunately, he died young, and was never able to fulfill that dream. So I have decided to buy one in his memory, and to try to raise it as the best race horse possible. I am going to try to find the best training for, from a reputable training staff, with a lot of experience in training horses to be raced.

Is Search Engine Optimization Right for You

There has been some discussion amongst many of my friends whether or not that the White Label SEO program is best for us. Personally, while I think it's a great program that can be utilized in many different ways, I feel like that my own business infrastructure would not collaborate well with the program. I use various different programs and software that helps utilize my affiliate networking associative backlinking search engine optimization tasks that I have practically modified to be unique to my own business. While I appreciate what Search Engine Optimization can bring to the table, I find it can be misleading.

What I mean by misleading is that Google specifically has done a heck of a poor job in implementing their Panda Filter. Unfamiliar with the term? Most people are, I find, which only goes to show how much Google prefers to keep it under wraps. You can no doubt find information when you look for it but it's not something that they have really made very known and even those blogs that have found themselves flagged by Panda are unable to have it removed; that's an automated process which will happen at least once a year, if not longer.

Basically, they are doing all that they can to censor content that they feel is inappropriate even if that content isn't anything of the sort. Google is dictating what you the user can or cannot see. The company that once proclaimed that they would, 'Do No Evil' has turned their back on their motto. They might say that it is merely the cost of doing business but in reality, it doesn't have to be the case. They are here to make a profit at whatever the cost, even if that means not giving users the option of a choice.

Finding a Chiropractor Who Understands

After being injured while rollerblading, I was shocked to hear that my doctor actually recommend seeing a chiropractor in Marlborough. I have long thought of chiropractors in the most negative of associations which, to be fair, is probably not reasonable. I really don't know why I have such a negative association toward them beyond the rumors that I've heard regarding their inability to actually help people or that they have been known to cause even more severe injuries to their patients. However, when taken into context, even surgery has a chance to hurt or kill a patient - even some medications have lethal side effects!

Trusting my GP enough to take her advice, I sought out a practitioner in the area. I wanted one that had solid reviews but also a chiropractor who would be closer to my age. I feel like I am more at ease around them if I can actually relate to them instead of just having a strictly patient/doctor relationship. I want to feel as if I could be friends with the person that I am entrusting my entire health and well being to. Otherwise I would not feel comfortable enough to visit them for whatever services I might require.

Luckily, I was able to find one who fit the bill. At thirty years old she had started her own practice and had been doing it for about five years. I felt comfortable enough around her to open up about my injury, the pain that it was causing and the goal that I had in mind. I wanted, more than anything, to be able to mitigate the pain without resorting to pain killers, muscle relaxers or whatever else would have otherwise been prescribed while I healed. Understanding my needs is important and she definitely caught on to it quick!

Improving on My Personal Development

Growing up without a central father figure to help with my leadership development has impacted my life in some seriously negative ways. I loathe to even admit that this is a problem but I have found that being brutally honest with myself is one of the most effective ways at dealing with any psychological or emotional issues at hand. As a kid I was raised only by my mother who did not have a very fair or firm hand in my personal development. Her way of 'raising' me was just to yell, scream and shriek while often times trying to hit me.

Clearly, that's not a way to raise a kid. That's also just asking for the CPS to come knocking on the door from time to time. Unfortunately, this sort of environment has effected my work life to a degree that I hadn't realized until recently after I was asked to take an employee engagement survey. This survey was finely tuned for every individual employee, each of us receiving one that was uniquely tied to us, and once it had been processed we were asked to actually sit down with a therapist or a member of management to discuss any issues.

I was both surprised and a little insulted by this but once I opened myself up to the idea I realized that there was a lot to be learned. I knew that I had emotional problems that I needed to solve but it was this survey and the therapist that they provided that honestly helped me pinpoint exactly where those problems stemmed from. In our line of work it's a must have to be mindful and emotionally stable due to the stressful nature of the work that we are engaged with. I know now what I need to work on which will only help me to improve my personal development.

My Dad Junoed from a Plane

What do you get for a person who has everything they could possibly want? That has been my dilemma with my parents for a long time, and I finally realized that buying them an experience rather than an actual physical gift was the best thing I could do for them. For my dad's last birthday, I decided to look into skydiving in the UK. He has often told us stories of when he was in the military, and his one regret was that he never got to skydive on a regular basis.

He has jumped out of a few planes, but it was at least 30 years ago, and I knew that he would cherish the experience to do that again. I wanted to do it for both of them, but I knew my mom would never agree to jump out of a plane that is a couple of miles above us in the sky. My dad is super adventurous though, and he was excited when I told him what I had bought him. He liked it even more when he found out that the instructors are also former military men, and he was eager to get with them.

He still had to go through the obligatory training, but that only lasted about 30 minutes. He told me that it was like riding a bike though. Once you know how to, it is something you never really forget, no matter how much time has passed. He had so much fun that day, and I have not seem him glowing like that in a very long time. He is talking about doing it again, and he is actually trying to talk my mom into jumping with him next time! I have to say that this is one of the best gifts I have given him.
