Why Philadelphia Is Worth a Stop on Your Cross-County Road Trip

Philadelphia might not make as big a splash as New York City or Washington D.C., but it's definitely worth a road trip stop if you'll be traveling along the East Coast. From fascinating moments in history to odd attractions to world-famous foods, Philly has a little something for everyone. Discover what makes this urban center such an exciting and unique destination to add to your journey.

Entertaining the Easy Way With One Pot Meals

Image Credit: Pexels Entertaining guests with a delicious home-cooked meal is a cheap way to get together and a great opportunity to experiment with some interesting ingredients. The joy of cooking is always in the play of texture and flavour, but sometimes it can take a lot of effort to produce.
But instead of reaching for the takeaway menus when you don’t have the time or energy to spend the afternoon in the kitchen, you should instead go for a simple one pot. With less washing up, and most of the cooking time requiring only a modest amount of attention, the humble one pot can provide flavour without much effort. What Do I Need to Make a One Pot Meal?To begin with, you need to make sure that you have what you need in the kitchen. A big wok will serve plenty of people a decent stir fry meal and a large ceramic casserole dish is the perfect vessel for stews, casseroles and even ratatouille. For some really beautiful ceramic cookware, have a look at StoneFryingPans.com.

Proper Preparation For Your Trip On The Road

Image Source The majority of times you go away, it’s likely you fly. After all, you can’t exactly drive across oceans. What’s more, flying is the cheapest option available in many cases. And, it’s certainly the fastest way to travel long distances.
Sometimes, though, we hit the road instead of the sky, and decide to drive to our location. It may be that you’re going on a city break, and driving makes more sense. Or, perhaps you’re going on a full-blown road trip, and the journey is the body of your vacation.

Either way, going long distances in your car when you aren’t used to it can be daunting. It’s likely you’ve studied your route and tried to prepare stop-offs to keep you from drowsing behind the wheel. All important stuff, of course. But, with all these big plans, it’s easy to forget about the fundamental checks you need to make before leaving. Lucky for you, we’re going to remind you of them here.

It would be foolhardy to head off without doing a few maintenance ch…

My Fake Face From Facebook

SERIOUS MEH?

Saw in Facebook... Many of my friends "played" with this FB app and I joined in the club out of curiosity and vanity..... Dug out one of my old photos taken two years ago and uploaded it to this Faceapp....

How to Get Your Yard and Garden Ready for Summer Fun

The Spring is an excellent time of year. Winter's harsh weather goes away and the new season brings moderate temperatures, sunshine, and new growth. During this season you can start living outdoors again.
Spring is a good time to start working on your yard. Here are a few projects that can help you prepare your yard and garden for summer fun.
1. Control Pests  Garden pests, like aphids, love new growth. If you see trees and plants with poorly formed or curled leaves, this is a sign of aphids. These pests usually target fruit trees, citrus trees, and roses.
To remove aphids from your plants, wash the foliage frequently using a strong jet of water, to blast the aphids away. You can also use horticultural oil or insecticidal soap. If you want a more natural treatment, release ladybugs into your garden at dusk.
If you have a problem with slugs and snails, you can bait them, or remove them by hand. 
2. Prepare Flowerbeds Amend your planting bed soil with organic matter. Start by spreading 3 i…

It was like gazillion miles away, I wouldn’t know what airline was it. Then, it hits me. Just recently Tony Fernandes, you know, the dude that revolutionize low-cost carrier in Malaysia, yeah, that guy. He releases his own book called the Flying High: My Story.

Online Purchase For New Eyeglasses

My carelessness revealed..
A couple of weeks back, I was looking for my eyeglasses, I could not find it anywhere at all.  I searched practically the whole house, even my wardrobe cupboard for I experienced one time before I left it at the clothing drawer.   But to no avail, I could not find it anywhere.... until one day, I reversed my car from the house to the outside of my gate and I heard a "cracking" sound.  I came down from my car and what did I find???   Yes, you guess it correctly, there right on the road was my mangled eyeglasses "crushed" to death by my own car tires.  How did it get under the car?  The only explanation is that I must have dropped my glasses right in front of my house gate without realizing it and then when I reversed my car, my glasses were crushed!

There goes my $$!  I went to purchase another pair immediately for I could not see clearly without them.  It is very costly going to the optical shop and getting a new pair, I tell myself that …
