Jewellery With Heart

Wedding rings haven’t changed much in design over the centuries. Most people will settle for a respectable piece of silver or gold around their finger. Some might have a flamboyant piece that shows off wealth while others aim for a simple ring that signifies the bond of love being greater than the worth of the ring. For many Irish people though, a wedding band and pieces revolving around the claddagh design are of great importance for any traditional wedding.

Claddagh rings are a gorgeous piece of jewellery with a traditional Irish design that has been used to celebrate all manner of occasions. When a child is born the family will be given a claddagh band or the mother will be given a ring with the child’s birthstone in the centre. The design aims to represents new and long lasting lover with two hands clasping on to a shining heart.

For many Irish people getting married though, a band will be commonplace as a featured gift from a close family member. Many couples now even aim to incorporate it in to their wedding rings with claddagh patterns and celtic designs etched in.


It’s seen as bringing a level of Irish authenticity to the wedding and a celebration of culture far removed from drinking a pint of the black stuff or dancing to traditional music.

A Little Piece of Silver

Silver Jewellery has consistently been a favorite option with girls. But, the demand and acceptability for silver jewellery for a style accessory has shot up drastically in the previous decade or so.

The current prevalence of silver jewellery could be credited to the sophistication and versatility related to this precious metal. It’s now accepted as an even more contemporary jewelry alternative vis – a – vis the heavy and pricey conventional gold jewelry. Actually on evaluating one discovers that little has changed within the designs of gold jewellery during the last few decades, whereas, fashion has dictated that the trendiest designs are frequently created for silver and costume jewellery.


Sterling silver is an alloy comprising 7% copper and nearly 93% silver. The seven % alloy provides the silver hardness and endurance. With no alloy, the silver piece will be too-soft to use.

Now, a broad number of fashionable jewelry pieces can be found in sterling silver including silver to silver created with coloured gemstones. From a trend perspective, gold is largely appropriate for daytime use. During winters, silver gels nicely if worn with blue, black and other dark colours. Yet within the summertime, worn with light-weight clothes and pastels, silver appears comfy and cool.

Silver is really one of the earliest found metals in the world.

Silver was utilized in early Italy and Greece to make boats, private decorations, jewelry, arrows, arms and coinage. It was utilized as money in several cultures.

The word “Sterling Silver”, emerged in England from the 13th-century.
The pound sterling was utilized as money in England from the twelfth century until the center of the twentieth century.

Silver, while not used in circulating money throughout the planet, continues to be used for jewelry, flatware and plates. Because of growing demand generation facilities using modern technology to provide hip silver articles to high-fashion jewelry stores, have developed.

My New Discovery

I love my TV shows, never used to watch that much TV but times have certainly changed.  I think one of the reasons is that my children have got a bit older and now no longer demand my attentions every waking minute.  Part of me misses this but at least I can sit down and watch a few shows uninterrupted.  My favorite are some of the great US shows that are produced which start appearing on UK Television.

Unfortunately I get quite frustrated waiting for them to air in the UK until I found a solution a year or two back.  It started with I think one of the many series of Lost, I got so frustrated waiting for the show to reach the UK I started looking online.  Of course there were lots of solutions but too many involved downloading from seedy looking sites or virus riddled servers.  The other issue was that it took forever to download from these sites and was rapidly turning into a full time occupation.

That was when somebody in the US told me about Hulu which airs all the best shows online (even streaming in HD).  She was right every show I wanted to watch and all slap bang up to date was there. It was looking good until I actually tried to watch something and then it all went wrong.  You see like lots of media sites Hulu has decided to restrict access to those people actually resident in the USA – which didn’t include me.  Whenever I tried to access the shows I’d get a little, polite message saying that I couldn’t!

But I persisted and discovered that the only way Hulu knows that I am not in the US is because of my IP address.  This address is linked to my ISP and country so is easy to work out where I am.  However I discovered  that it was actually fairly easy to hide this IP address and pretend I was in the US.  So I searched and after finding lots of rubbish servers I discovered that you could buy very cheap subscriptions to services that gave you access to a whole host of US proxy sites like these.

All  that I needed to do was connect to one these before accessing Hulu and it was fooled into letting me watch.  As long as I used a proxy server based in the US I was fine.  It’s worth checking out as you can also use this technique to watch the BBC Iplayer if you’re outside the UK too.



My Growing Paranoia About Privacy

I’m sure I didn’t used to be like this, paranoid I mean.  I don’t remember being secretive or being worried that other people knew where I lived or where I worked.  I know when it started though and it’s more than just my passing years that is to blame.

I use Facebook so I have no desire to be a complete hermit.  But I cringe when people put up stupid photos of themselves, or broadcast their address and telephone number on their wall.  I briefly think of reminding them that’s its a bit stupid to announce online where you live and then the next day confirm that the property will be empty for three weeks as you are going on holiday.   If I was considering becoming a criminal, a long list of Facebook friends would be a business asset.

There are other problems, in the UK before we all spectacularly ran out of money the last Government has some seriously unnerving idea.  To collect all the data available on what everyone does online and put it in a database that the Government, Police and various agencies could access when they wish to spy on us.

It was called the Intercept Modernization Program and it was nothing more than a huge spying database.  If the East German Secret Police, the Stasi would have been overjoyed if they were still around.  The justification some mumblings about safety and capturing terrorists.

Of course we had a safety net, in the fact that Government IT projects never work properly.  However if by some fluke it had been implemented correctly it would be the same as having a webcam on every screen in the land, whilst the Government minions peer over your shoulder.

The more people want to monitor what I’m doing online, the less inclined I am to let them.  So now I have used the technology available to make sure that what I do on the web is private.  I stay up to date with all the latest anonymous surfing techniques (source: and invest in software to keep me safe.

If my government want to know what I’ve been doing online then they can come and ask me.  Spying on the entire population on the off chance of picking up the odd dopey terrorist is not a good enough excuse in my opinion.

My Wonderful Gift


I have five little dogs at home right now. My husband does not like them but I insist that we should take care of them no matter what. The problem comes on the feeding time. Because there are so many of them, the feeding time becomes a little difficult to me. Every dog wants to eat first and always barks when I ignore one of them. My husband really hates that sound. Every times my dogs make noises he will stomp out of the house until everything is done. Then one day he comes home and brings an automatic dog feeder for my dogs. He is such a nice husband, well maybe because he cannot stand the noises anymore and he doesn’t want to make me throw away my dogs so he buys it for me. With this wonderful tool, the feeding time is never a problem anymore.

Taking Care of Stray Cat


My mother loves cat so much. One of my neighbor calls her the queen of cat. Even though she already has two dozen of cats, she will take in another stray cat. She says that she felt pity for the cat for the whole reason that every human needs to take care of animals. Well I think I agree with her. Recently there is a pregnant cat, which stays in my rooftop. I think she will labor soon. Well having a great mother who can take care of cat you may think I can do the same. Well sorry to disappoint you but I really do not know how to do that. I want to help the cat but she is very aggressive every time I come near her. Some of my friends tell me some tips. Maybe you can do it to when you found stray cat near you. First, give her a food. Leave her food at night to start with. Always provide fresh water near it. Second, come and take a look it occasionally, so she will get used to you. After she is familiar with you, you can try to feed it directly in the daytime. If she shows an aggressive signal, just place the can down and back up slowly. If she allow you to pet her then it is meant that you already gain her trust. Well the pregnant cat already has three little cute kitten and I take them in our house. Plus with the automatic cat feeder we can take care of them better.

Automatic Cat Feeder My Perfect Gift

I am a cat lover and in entire my life I never think about this would be happen. Before getting marriage taking care of my cats never become a problem for me. The problem comes when my husband often protest about my cat behavior which often steal our meal. He asked me to throw away my cats. I cry for begging to keep my cats still taken care by me.

And the most meaningful birthday gift was given to me in 2012 by my husband. I was given a huge box and I found upon opening it that it contained something wrapped perfectly. When I finally got it, it contained an automatic cat feeder

This awesome cat feeder was simply beautiful, but that is not what made it the most meaningful gift. This and we are still as in love today as we were all those many years ago without any little problem disturb us. That is what makes the automatic cat feeder the most meaningful birthday gift I have ever received. I must confess that we are definitely more mature than when I received the gift, we have grown stronger in our marriage and more understand each other.

Use This Payment Calculator to Estime Car Loan Payments

Everyone knows how to use payment calculators. In fact, most people can figure the formula out on a simple calculator bought from the dollar store. These calculators have been replaced by the cell phone in many cases, but advances in technology do not change the math available. A paymentbot is a specific piece of software designed to help people figure out how much they will pay on car loans, home loans, and on credit card balances.  It does all of the math for the individual, provided he supplies a few simple numbers.  Even if a person can do it on his own, he may find the paymentbot a useful tool because of current business practices.

Fees are part of modern banking.  Everyone who has even used an automatic teller machine lately knows this.  What the borrower may not realize is that financial lending institutions also like to charge hidden fees. These hidden fees get included into the cost of the loan. Federal, state and sometimes local governments can add to the payment through taxes.  A paymentbot written by a bank, and usually coded in Java or Javascript, can take all of this into account.  They will add the fees, taxes, and other items onto the total cost of the loan and calculate how much the user will pay to service the loan each month.

If someone wants to know if he can make the payment on a mortgage or a car loan, he can use the paymentbot to get the amount. If he has a specific lender in mind, he can use that software. If he just needs to get a general figure so he can plan or postpone his purchases accordingly, a number of different tools are available to help the cautious consumer. The unwary consumer may want to pay attention to their predictions as well.

Who Has Time To Exercise?

Here’s the thing: I used to look good without even trying.  I could roll out of bed and run to the store in my pajamas and flip flops, and I still looked amazing.  Over the years, I am not sure what happened.  Even if I didn’t care that much before about how I looked, I pulled it off.  Now when I don’t care about how I look, I appear to be a homeless person.  No joke, a few weeks ago I went out to Walmart at an ungodly hour of the morning for an emergency can of coffee. 

I was still in my pajamas, though I did take the time to brush my teeth (thankfully!), and I was just going to run in, grab the coffee, and run back out.  I dropped my purse on the sidewalk by accident, and bent down to tie my shoe and a person dropped some change into my open purse.  They really thought I was homeless and panhandling! 

Anyhow, to make a long story short, I had to take a long, hard look at myself when I got home (after my coffee of course!), and I realized two things: 1. I am too old to not care about how I look and 2. I need to start exercising.  My pajamas were too tight, too short, and my tennis shoes were used for yard work and not exercise.  So here’s the thing; I have three kids and three dogs.  I didn’t think I had the time to get exercising into my routine.  I started reading reviews online, and I came across a review for the insanity workout.  I was amazed at the results people got from it in such a short amount of time.  It sounds like I can make the time to exercise with this workout routine.  And hopefully I won’t look like a homeless person anymore!

I have been a healthy person all my life an always try to look after myself in what ever way i can, eating the right foods and trying to exercise when ever i can so after having my recent child i was worried out my physical appearance with stretch marks and was worried about my body shape.

I was looking at clinic that could offer treatment that would be safe and quick helping me get back on my feet again and into my normal way of live. I came across who offered a whole range of different treatment that would help me.

After doing some research i booked myself in for a consultation where i meant with the doctor who was able to talk me though the whole procedure and let me know about the aftercare i would need as well as the pros and cons of the different treatment types that i could have. 

Take time to think about the procedure and talk over the financial and physical effect with my partner it was decided that i should got ahead and get a treatment to help with my skin conditions.
