The Giants That Built the Pyramid of Giza

I was recently asked whether the Giants who helped to build the pyramid of Giza has the same DNA as human beings. What is the arrangement of the double helix? From the questions it became clear that the concept of the forces of animism that take on forms is yet to sit well with many people. But the issue of DNA I will handle in a separate article.

Anyone who has read my articles on The Pyramid of Giza and The Gods of Our Ancestors will have a better appreciation of what I am about to explain. And it is important to know that these thoughts are not mine, and that they derive from my understanding of the work In The Light Of Truth The Grail Message, a book written by a German author, Oscar Ernst Bernhardt who wrote under the pen name, Abd-ru-shin.

The giants we meet in mythology actually existed, and are still in existence today. It is only necessary to add that myths are the realities that we lost in the intellectual closet we locked ourselves in. Thus when we are told of an Atlas that stood on mount Atlas and held the sky, we are actually dealing with a depiction of the reality of a giant called Atlas, who resides on mount Atlas, and gave its name to the mountain.In fact, many mountains have some of these giants inhabiting them.

Another species of giants are responsible for hurricanes. Their strides, race and activities result in destructive movement of air. They uproot trees and carry water to flood planes.

A different species cause earthquakes and volcanoes. They work in coordinated way, such that those that form volcanoes serve as preparers for major earthquakes and earth sinking, as they did in the sinking of Atlantis. I explained this in the article, The Sinking of Atlantis. They are still the same that will be responsible for the sinking of parts of Japan and much of Europe, which will be counter balanced by the rise of Atlantis at the center of the Atlantic Ocean.

They are the ones who helped the Incas to build the temple that was one of the most expensive in the world, since many parts of the temple and artifacts in it are in solid gold. They were also the ones who sank it under water. Today, its memories are in mythology as a mysterious temple at the bottom of a lake which, for current security reasons, I may not name. The giants will one day raise the temple when a universal earthquake hits the earth, Atlantis rises, and many other political upheavals follow. Then, a new teaching will gain power with the force of a hurricane.

The time is near when all men’s heart will be gripped with fear, when the great wonder appears in heaven.

Is It OK to Break Open Fish Oil Pills In Order To Make Swallowing Easier?

Let’s face it! Lots of us have trouble swallowing pills and capsules. Breaking open fish oil pills or capsules, however, is not the easiest way to deal with the problem.

There is no fundamental reason not to break open a capsule of a high quality supplement into a clean spoon or even into a glass of V-8 juice or some other salty, flavorful vegetable juice. As long as the oil is consumed right away, it will not oxidize and the essential fatty acids it contains will not spoil. You can just throw the capsule away, although some brands like Nordic Naturals add flavoring to the capsule itself to make it tasty enough to chew. But don’t! You don’t really want to squirt fish oil in your mouth unless you have tasted it before and grown accustomed to it.

There are reasons, however, not to break open a capsule of any product that is labeled as containing “marine liquids.” Another term for marine liquids might be fish juice. Just as a fish would go bad if you put it in a bottle and left it on your shelf for six months or more, marine liquids ferment inside the capsule. They don’t really smell rotten. They smell fishy. They are the component of low-quality products that give you fishy burps and indigestion. Never open a fish oil capsule if the label lists marine liquids as an ingredient.

There are two easy ways to deal with the problems of swallowing omega-3 supplement pills.

One is to buy chewables. Usually offered in fruit flavors, such as cherry, lemon, orange, and lime, these omega-3 gummy bears are meant to be chewed and swallowed. The best brands don’t taste fishy and both children and adults usually enjoy them.

The other way to get your fish oil dose without having to break open a pill or capsule is to buy liquid fish oil in bottles.

Back in the days when the only available type of this oil was rancid, nasty cod liver oil, getting your daily omega-3s, vitamin A, and vitamin D from fish oil seemed more like punishment than nourishment. The awful flavor of the oil was due to the fact that fishing vessels lacked storage and basic sanitation.

Fortunately, today this problem no longer exists. Fish are caught in cold waters and immediately put on ice. Supplement makers do not tolerate bacterial contamination in the catch and they test their products for any signs of spoilage or bacterial contamination.

It is still possible to buy fermented cod liver oil, and, believe it or not, it is actually the most nutritious form of fish oil on the planet. Just a teaspoon (5 ml) a day is enough for your daily requirements of vitamins A and D.

There are other types of these oils not made from livers which are also available in fruit flavors. In Norway, they are even a popular breakfast drink.

Make no mistake about it! It’s OK to break open capsules of high-quality fish oils. But it’s a lot easier to use chewable DHA capsules or fruit-flavored oil.

If you’re interested, I can give you my personal recommendation for the high-quality supplement that I take on a daily basis… without having to open the capsule. Just visit my website.

How To Read Jewelry Marks

The number markings on precious gold jewelry are a bit of confusion to lots of people. We are generally used to seeing a karat or silver mark like this: 10K, 14K, 18K, Sterling, etc. The numbers mean the same thing.

For 14k the number is technically 583 but most manufacturers adopted the European way and make 14k gold a tiny bit over 14k, so the mark is 585 in most 14k jewelry. 18K is marked 750. If the mark is valid and there is a makers mark also in the jewelry, the number means these items are 18k gold.

Here is where the numbers come from. Pure gold is called 24 karat. For 18k gold, there are 18 parts of pure gold mixed with other metals to make the metal suitable for use in jewelry. 24k is too soft alone to stand up or to hold stones well. 18 parts pure gold divided by 24, or 18/24 equals 750. That is where the number comes from. The jewelry is 75% pure gold, 750 parts gold with 250 parts other metals out of “1000” parts. It is easier to think of it as a percent which is pure gold in the recipe.

Sterling silver is marked 925. Sterling is 92.5% pure silver and the rest is other metal, generally copper.

What does it mean if the ring marked 14K PR? The 14K simply means it is 14K (Karat) gold and because of the K means it would have been made in either South East Asia or The United States. The PR marks are just the Maker or Store ID or even a design mark, and have no relevance to the Value.

The basic decimal formula to work out the quality of gold content is quite simple, as they are all measured in ‘Parts per Thousand.’ This means that 9ct gold is calculated like this: 9 (for 9ct) is divided by pure gold (24) and then multiplied by 1000 (for pure gold as a decimal). ie: 9/24*1000=375 That 375 is the decimal quality for 9ct gold and is sometimes shown with a decimal point in front – .375

The old Victorian standard of 15ct gold is calculated the same way – 15/24*1000 = 625 (Not quite the numbers you have on your jewelry. Dental gold is 16ct or 666 recurring. But you can also reverse this formula by starting with the decimal and working back. ie: 375/1000*24 = 9

In your case we can use 698/1000*24 = almost 17ct

I have a platinum engagement ring and found a wedding ring that I really like but the band is made of palladium. Is it safe to wear these two metals together without one damaging the other?

It will wear the softer metal OVER TIME but that could take many years. My Grandmothers wedding ring eventually wore away the band of her engagement ring but it took over 20 years to do.

Platinum and Palladium and quite good together but I would take the advice of your local friendly jeweler and have them check both rings. Sometimes the Platinum may be a lower grade in order to make it harder – so have that checked.

Bachelor Degree – BA Vs. BS

There are a lot of people who wonder why some bachelor degrees, when you get them, designate you as a bachelor of arts and other bachelor degrees designate you as a bachelor of science. Well, the answer is very simple.

A Bachelor of Arts degree goes to somebody who gets a bachelor degree in any non-technical, or science related field. A Bachelor of Science degree goes to somebody who does get a degree in a science related field. The designations are set up by the colleges themselves.

So, what’s the difference? Does it really matter?

The answer to that question may shock you. It matters very much.

The reasons will not be immediately apparent to the student, but when he or she goes into the real world to get a job, they are going to be in for a rude awakening if they’re looking for a specific type of job and don’t have a bachelor of science degree.

If you’re scratching your head wondering why this even matters, the answer is as follows. Most Bachelor of Science programs are a little more intense than a Bachelor of Arts program. In other words, in addition to the degree having to be in a science related field, the degree itself will contain more required courses than a Bachelor of Arts degree. Of course this varies from college to college, but within each school the bachelor of science program is always more intense than the bachelor of arts program. There may be one more required course per semester, or more science courses required. The bottom line translation is, the program is harder to get through; in some cases, a lot harder.

So why does this matter? Well, there are certain jobs, such as in the fields of engineering, chemistry and physics, just to name a few, where if you look in the classified ads in your local paper, it will clearly say, “bachelor of science degree required”. So if you graduated college with a bachelor of arts degree, you won’t be able to apply for that job. Oh, you can still send in your resumé, but don’t expect to be called in for an interview.

Now, here is where this becomes very important. There are some colleges that will allow you to get a Bachelor of Arts degree in math, which is technically one of the sciences. The program doesn’t have as many requirements. So when you graduate, while you technically have a degree in one of the sciences, because of the fact that you don’t have a bachelor of science degree, you will not be eligible for that particular job that says “bachelor of science degree required”.

It may seem like a nit picky thing, but these companies want to know that you can get through the tougher curriculum. They want to know that you have a good chance of being able to handle the job that you’re applying for. Is there a really big difference between a bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degree? In an undergraduate program, probably not too much. But in the minds of the companies, where there is so much competition for jobs, it is a big deal.

Two Poems – Complex Poetic Form and Triple Boketto Poem

Thoughts of Unknowing (Complex Poetic Form)

Thoughts of unknowing and you dance me

until I become the only movement… This tango undresses

my feelings, and I am stripped of all bad thinking

to be enlightened. I am a Cartesian clear and distinct object

on this pyramidal peak of the mountain, where

the echoes trail off almost forever over the horizon.

Let’s sing, either with power, or with angels, or with freedom,

naught else, nor no more songs, but a swing song,

a prothalamium, which

clearly,

straightly,

rightly,

truly

expresses nothing less than the clarity of our true feelings

and nothing more than the rightness of our straight angles of view.

There is the fullness of our love, where

God is knowable, whether willful or involuntary.

We can neither see still,

solace still one another

in our sufferings,

unless we are sadly stuck in His

unending love cycle. There is, in fact,

a cognitive itch

and a divination using the human form

while being alive,

when life is not alive in its own sense

except for the eternity.

We can be good people

through this consciousness of ours,

which is relentless and reflexive,

especially when it becomes an object in itself.

I am not myself,

I am only this reaction of mine

in front of others

like a doppelgänger in the mirror.

The more I feel the time passing

the more I understand the eternity.

Yet turn, turn to live each second of no return.

There is no yellow horse in our dreams,

neither is this golden ripe wheat field

our land of freedom.

The sun still shines on every still green sunflower

Following it from east to west each day.

I’m spellbound by

the swinging sonorous cadence

of the birds chirping on the pyramids

and on the peaks of the mountains.

Lost in Blue (Triple Boketto Poem)

Victims have no place to stay;

Refugees are turned away,

When the night goes down today,

Nobody asks why.

Life is going by.

Kids need food to stay alive

And make effort to survive

Lost in blue.

How hard is it to live there?

All their new diseases are rare.

In this world wave of prayer,

Where the snakes can lie,

Life is going by.

The sands fall through the hourglass.

The hope withers like the grass

Lost in blue.

Behind the new concealed walls,

Near the sky and the wet falls,

The life dances the death’s calls

To upturn the eye.

Life is going by.

The chaos can’t rise above,

When the people search for love,

Lost in blue.

What Does It Mean When He Says You Are Special! Learn the True and Real Meaning Behind This

Being told that you’re special is a breathtaking experience more so when the one who said it is your most cherished man. There are, however, many different meanings to just one word so the word special could mean a hundred different things to different people.

You’re special because you’re the one.

Perhaps this man has been dating around and now he has found his soul mate in you. The word special means he’s done searching for a woman to spend his time with.

You’re special because he truly cares for you.

Most of the time, men say that you’re special if they feel deeply in love with you. He has to express his overwhelming emotions for you that’s why he’s saying this. This is probably the most raw of all reasons why a man would tell you that you’re a special person.

You are now his.

A man telling you that you’re special to him could only mean that he’s already owning you or marking you as his own. He’s saying this so that you would reserve yourself to him. This is his way of telling to the world that you’re now an item.

The word special is a supplement for the word love.

Sometimes, a man can be so timid that he won’t even be able to tell you how much he loves you. Just so it wouldn’t sound like he’s being serious from the onset, he would just tell you, for now, that you’re special to him.

You’re special because he appreciates your talents and skills.

This guy must have been smitten by your sweet singing voice or your cooking skills. Then what’s to stop him from saying you’re special because you truly are? Not too many women could be good at painting, rock climbing, or even knitting, so it’s but natural for him to appreciate these things about you.

Saying you’re special is like putting a brake to his speeding emotions.

This guy is just being cautious when he says that you’re special. He doesn’t want you to think that he’s not interested but at the same time, he also doesn’t want you to think that he’s already committing to you. He’s holding off his deep emotions for now so that he can have time to assess his feelings for you.

He’s just being a gentleman.

This man is just trying to please you but, in reality, you’re still not the one for him. He’s just being nice to you since you’re a woman and so he’s saying the most extraordinary word that he could think of.

How To Treat Dog Vomiting

A very common problem that virtually all of us see as dog owners is dog vomiting.

There are potentially many different causes of dog vomiting. The most common cause is garbage gut, where your dog consumes something he should not have, resulting in vomiting. Other causes include food allergies, parasites, medications, infectious disease (ie parvovirus), cancer, liver or kidney disease, pancreatitis, metabolic disorders (thyroid disease or diabetes), physical obstruction such as a ball or a bone, and primary motility disorders the stomach does not contract normally).

Any vomiting dog must be evaluated for dehydration. If your dog is vomiting persistently and unable to retain even water, wait no longer than 24 hours before going to your veterinarian. This indicates a severe problem, such as an erection, that needs to be treated with IV fluids and possibly surgery. If your dog is still consuming water and occasionally vomiting, then you can try some of the home remedies.

Fasting. A 24 hour fast is the most important thing you can do to allow your pet's inflated stomach to heal. Allow access to controlled depths of water, but no food. After 24 hours offer bland food such as plain cooked white rice; give equivalent amounts of rice as you do dog or cat food. After 48 hours mix their regular food with rice and do not fully go to regular food until after 72 hours.

For Food Allergens. For dogs and cats with chronic vomiting, I strongly recommend a diet change. Preferably switch to a hypoallergenic food or homemade allergy diet. At the very least, change to a premium quality food – I find that some pets respond to a more natural diet. In light of the recent Pet Food Recall, paying close your dog's diet is even more important than ever.

Homeopathic. Nux Vomica is an effective homeopathic remedy for dog vomiting. Give 1 tablet of the 30C strength per 40lbs once daily for 3-5 days.

Herbal – Ginger. A tasty addition for a curry is also effective for vomiting. The dried herb dose is 25mg per lb or 1 drop per lb twice daily of the tincture.

Acupressure Point. The ST36 point, located on the outside of the hind leg below the knee may be effective; press it for 1 minute twice daily for 3-5 days to see if it helps.

Flowers to the Rescue: Bach Rescue Remedy can make your pet feel a little better about their illness. Give your pet 3-4 drops by mouth every 6 hours.

Herbal – Chamomile. This is commonly used in people with mild stomach upset and it may help your pet. Give 30mg per lb of the dried herb, or 2 drops per lb of the tincture three times daily.

The treatments I covered may be all that you need for now. But I guarantee that you will use many of the thousands of at home remedies in my book.

I use them every day in practice. They work. No side effects.

You should try it.

To your pet's good health,

Dr. Andrew Jones

States With No Income Taxes & States With Low Property Taxes

Real Estate Investing & Property Tax Rates

In the United States, property tax is assessed by local government at the municipal or county level. The property tax assessment is based on two values–the value of the land, and the value of the building. Since property tax is calculated at a local-level–and since changes occur frequently–it’s tricky to determine the exact spots where property tax is the lowest. However, the following information should help you locate areas with high appreciation AND low property taxes.

Which States Have the Lowest Property Tax Rates?

County tax rates are often averaged into a single figure, and this number is used when comparing property taxes between states. Surprisingly, Wyoming has the lowest property tax rates. Unfortunately, property values in Wyoming tend to be pretty depressed, due to low population influx and a lack of jobs. Also, Wyoming does not rank highly when it comes to appreciation rates for residential and commercial real estate. Just because an area has low property taxes does not mean it will be the best area to invest in (or relocate to).

What to Look For When Investing

Look for an area that has a consistent rate of real estate appreciation, combined with fairly low property taxes. Often, local property tax rates are low because real estate appreciation in the area is low–so you need to be careful. Cities located next to universities and areas where businesses are relocating are usually excellent spots to buy real estate. Paying attention to population growth can help you spot real estate trends and make wiser investments.

Medium-Sized Cities With the Lowest Property Tax Rates

According to data gathered by the Office of the CFO in Washington, D.C., the following cities have the lowest property tax rates in 2006, based on an annual income of $75,000. Assuming you earn $75,000 annually, here are the property tax amounts you would pay in each city…

Birmingham AL — $988

Cheyenne WY — $1,108

Phoenix AZ — $1,248

Wichita KS — $1,309

Denver CO — $1,362

Charleston WV — $1,395

Oklahoma City OK — $1,538

Kansas City, MO — $1,595

Little Rock AR — $1,648

Louisville, KY — $1,713

Jacksonville FL — $1,744

Honolulu HI — $1,781

Billings MT — $1,864

Salt Lake City, UT — $1,904

Virginia Beach VA — $1,918

Jackson MS — $1,971

Charlotte, NC — $2,021

Boise, ID — $2,176

Columbia SC — $2,214

Las Vegas NV — $2,225

Sioux Falls SD — $2,228

New Orleans, LA — $2,231

Wilmington DE — $2,416

Memphis TN — $2,501

Albuquerque NM — $2,517

Houston TX — $2,861

The Connection Between State Income Taxes & Property Tax Rates

States with no income tax (see list below) usually have high property tax rates in their respective counties (The state needs to get its revenue from somewhere!). However, the trade-off is that you will have zero taxes on all earned income. This can be a huge advantage. Instead of paying the state 7 to 15 percent (or more) of your income, you can keep your hard-earned money, and invest it back into real estate or other investments. There are currently nine states that do not tax income at the state level.

States With No Income Tax

Alaska

Florida

Nevada

South Dakota

Texas

Washington

Wyoming

New Hampshire*

Tennessee*

*New Hampshire and Tennessee do not tax earned income, but they DO tax capital gains (dividend and interest income).

How To Find the Best of Both Worlds: Low Property Tax & No State Income Tax

If you’re looking for the best of both worlds (low property tax and no state income tax), you may want to consider the following cities:

Sioux Falls, SD

Houston, Texas

Jacksonville, Florida

Memphis, TN

Cheyenne, WY

Las Vegas, Nevada

You can also explore less well-known cities in the nine “no-income-tax” states. Smaller towns and cities generally offer “quality of life” advantages, and higher-than-average price appreciation and growth.

Conclusion

Now you know which states don’t tax income, and which areas have the lowest property tax rates. Armed with this knowledge, you can focus on finding the best spot for your next home or real estate investment.

Green Tea – Nature’s Own Cancer And Heart Disease Cure

What do the Chinese know, or have known, for over 4,000 years about herbal remedies like Green Tea that have been almost lost to the rest of the world, that could be our salvation…

If you do even the basic research, you will soon find evidence of the Chinese using Green Tea for its medicinal purposes going back to the time that the Egyptians were building their first pyramids. This article looks at the impact Green tea may well have on a number of chronic ailments so common in Western society, especially the Americans.

So, what can green tea do for you, and how does it do it? Well, it would all seem t point to a substance contained in some teas called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This is not only just a very powerful anti oxidant, but it also has properties that can cut down cholesterol, inhibit the formation of blood clots (Western society of course prefers rat poison for that!), would seem to be able to act as a cure for cancer, and can even search out and destroy cancer cells in the body.

Wow! What a powerful natural product, which begs the question – Why does green tea not get far more public awareness?

So, let’s look at a list of the most common ailments in the Western world, that have the highest mortality rate.

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • High levels of bad cholesterol
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Then look at some other afflictions, less deadly, but equally as debilitating to our lives

  • Obesity
  • Tooth decay
  • Headaches
  • Depression
  • Impaired Immune functions
  • Infections (food poisoning for instance)
  • Acne

Would you believe that every one of those issues are believed to respond to Green tea?

Now, there is a French connection here as well, funnily enough. Following similar dietary issues, there was some puzzlement over why the French, who were eating just as much fatty foods as their American counterparts, were nowhere near as obese because of it. A first, the connection was made with the copious amounts of red wine that the French consumed with their foods, due to the presence of resveratrol, which apparently reduces the harmful effects of smoking and a fatty food intake. For some time, researchers were giving red wine the same status almost as green tea its health promoting side effects ( as well as tasting better, and having other alcoholic side effect not found in green tea!). However, further research showed that the EGCG content on green tea was found to be more than twice as powerful as resveratrol, which may explain why in another research, the incidence of heart disease amongst Japanese men is so much lower than their Western counterparts, even though Japan seems to be one of the last bastions for smokers.

So, it is hard to believe why more emphasis is not put on green tea when it comes to promoting the well-being of many of us in the Western world. Perhaps we create our lifestyle habits as young people including drinking alcoholic drinks, eating fatty and usually ‘convenience’ foods, and put these values far ahead of a more controlled lifestyle resulting in a longer life. Anyway everybody is entitled to live their lives (long or short) in whatever manner they choose, but at least armed with a few facts now on the benefits of green tea, more and more people will look more closely at either the basic green tea itself, or some form of green tea additives.

Now you know, the choice is yours…

Differences Between Damask, Brocade, and Jacquard

Often times, uneducated individuals use the terms damask, brocade, and Jacquard interchangeably with one another. It can often confuse those who are unfamiliar with the world of fabrics. Jacquard is a decorative or woven pattern that is created by using a Jacquard attachment on a loom. The attachment resembles the punch card on a piano. It is purported to offer better versatility and fabric control for the operator of the loom. The Jacquard technique can be applied to a variety of fabrics, and it is commonly used on brocade and damask fabrics. It is commonly used in a variety of apparel and home goods, from tablecloths to bedding.

Brocade is defined as a lavishly decorated, shuttle woven fabric. It is primarily woven from silk; although, it is possible to find brocade constructed from a blend of silk and synthetic fibers. Often, it will be embroidered with gold or silver thread. Brocade can trace its origins back to India, where weaving is a traditional art form. It is typically woven on a loom, and it may or may not be woven using the Jacquard technique. It is also characterized by the manner in which the brocaded or broached parts of the fabric hang in loose groups or are clipped away. Although the scenes and patterns on brocade appear to have been embroidered, the scenes are actually woven into the fabric using advanced weaving techniques that involve manipulating the weft and weave of the fabric. The most common types of scenes depicted on brocade fabric are those of floral prints.

Damask, similarly to brocade, is a fabric that features woven scenes of floral patterns, intricate geometric designs, or simple scenes of domestic life. It may be woven of silk, wool, linen, cotton, or synthetic fibers. However, it is most commonly created from silk. It is primarily different from brocade in the fact that its woven fabric pattern is reversible, while that of brocade is not. Similarly, shorter weft patterns in damask allow for more subtle effects in the fabric to be created as it plays off of shadow and light. Damask weaves also contain a higher thread count than that of brocade. Double damask weaves are the highest quality of damask produced; however, it is also the most expensive.

Youth Group – Seven Ways to Experience Explosive Growth in Your Youth Group

Recently I saw the following in a church bulletin: "BARF II – Be sure your student does not miss the event of the month! _____ (Name of youth group) will be having their annual BARF Night (Bring A Real Friend) on Wednesday , April x. This night is all about our students bringing their friends to service with them. There will be challenges, tons of cash giveaways, friends, and of course … barf. We guarantee your child will leave with a better appreciation of good friendship. "

For sure, this youth group, actually the whole church, is experiencing tremendous growth. There are actually seven things that you can do as a youth leader to spark growth.

1. Have a monthly event with a very catchy title. I mean, BARF II? What kind of title is that? But, it sure catches your attention. Notice, this is the second time for this type of event.

2. Have a specific purpose for the event. Never have an event for the sake of having an event. The purpose of this event was to Bring A Real Friend.

3. Put it on the church calendar. What you do not want is other church events that are going to be in conflict with the same people or room involving your event.

4. Announce the upcoming event in the youth group, have it in the church bulletin, and have it announced from the pulpit. And do it often – promote, promote, promote. And them promote some more. Build it up and let the youth and their parents know what is going to happen.

5. Since you've built it up, you must plan. And do it in writing. This is not a time to "just wing it." Who is going to help? What are the youth going to do to help? What are you going to do? How long is going to take? Plan every minute and then plan some extra things, just in case you need them. And be sure communication is open and in tact between you, the youth leader, and your helpers. Be sure to tie this in with the title of the event.

6. Since teens tend to be competitive, challenges and protests with prizes are in order. Again, tie everything together around the title of the event.

7. If you feed them, they will come. Snacks, pizza, hot dogs, whatever your group likes to eat. If budget is a problem, ask for help. Either charge enough to cover expenses or ask church members including business owners to donate.

Cunninlingus For Beginners – 3 Steps to Make Her Squeal With Delight!

One of the hardest things to do as a guy, is to go down on a girl and provide amazing cunnilingus. In all honesty, it does take some practice and some learning on the different techniques that work amazingly well. But there are definitely some things you can do as a beginner to make her squeal in absolute delight. Let’s get started:

1. Warm her up. Don’t dive right in, but rather warm things up by kissing, touching and licking. Slowly make your move downtown. Once you are there you want to continue to warm things up, by kissing and licking the thighs and the vagina area. Once you hear that she’s getting excited, then you can zero in on the clitoris and go to work.

2. Go gentle with a FLAT tongue. You can experiment later with a firmer, more pointed tongue, but for beginners it’s best to use a flat tongue to start with. Girls can be very sensitive and many have stated a firm, pointed tongue can be too harsh. Go gentle and feel her out. If she’s sensitive then take it easy and maneuver slowly.

3. Use this Technique. For a good starter technique, simply focus on tongue circles. Just go round and round with your tongue as if you are making circles. This is a basic, but effective technique. Beyond your circle action you can vary the speed, you can go from small circles to occasional larger circles and then back to small, and you can do spiral circles where you start small and gradually go larger, then reverse it. There are many variations you can perform, just pay attention and see how well she responds to the particular circle technique you are performing.

Home Made Vacations

Who told you that a great vacation is hundreds of miles away? Who told you that a good time gotta cost a lot of money? Who told you that you can’t have a luxurious vacation without booking a flight, securing hotel reservations, getting a car rental, or packing up a suitcase? Because that’s all lies! You can do it! The magic word? STAYCATION!

But, what is a staycation, anyway?

Umm… I’m so glad you asked, Mr. Bear! Because, boy have I got some honey for you!

A staycation is simply a home vacation! That’s right! Instead of taking the girl to the country, we’re gonna bring the country to the girl! Right in the living room too!

Don’t you know that the possibilities are truly endless!

You can go camping, right in the living room! We can sleep in the woods, right from the back bedroom! We can even make the entire sun disappear by covering every single window and door crack up with dark bags and tape! We can sit around a makeshift fire in our little campsite (using a ceramic heater) and enjoy marshmallow smores!

Or, we can turn the house into a luxury vacation home! We can hang fancy drapes up around the house, and breakout our finest dish wear! Let’s get fancy! Cover the table with a nice-looking tablecloth and get some accent candles to match it!

We can literally go anywhere in the world simply by dressing the house up accordingly! We only need a little bit of creativity.

The key to a great staycation is being in the spirit and having the right type of focus in place. We gotta make up our minds that we are going to play by the rules, and we are going to commit to having a good old time!

Get the furniture out of the way. If we’re going for an outdoor thing, then we want to get rid of as much furniture as possible. But, where would we put everything?

Well, if you have an extra room, we can move everything to that one single room and then close it off. We should disassemble things like the end tables and the furniture that comes apart easily. We don’t need to disassemble the entertainment center, but we can just drape a thick cloth over it instead.

We want to have as much open space as we can.

It’s best to create a schedule to follow, because without this, then we will be tempted to get back into our regular home routine. We should consider closing off the kitchen too. We want the house to feel different and out of the normal setting.

If we are going for an upscale staycation, then we would instead work to fancy the house up a bit.

We should consider moving a few pieces around too. Because, this would add to the change of feeling in the house.

Be sure to turn off and unplug all TV’s if we’re going the outdoor thing. But, if we’re doing upscale, then why not bring the bigger speakers out?

If we are doing a staycation with the kids, we only gotta be a bit creative.

Kids will generally follow your lead, so as long as you remain in the mood, they will play along.

Unplug your phone and turn off your cell phone for privacy and peace.

If you have the bigger room, then consider switching things up with the kids! That’s right! Give them the bigger room, and let them have your bed too! You can just turn the mattress over for them.

The idea is to truly change things up a bit so the house again, feels different.

Make sure you get some scented oils for the tub. Aroma therapy will greatly enhance the atmosphere of the home and the fresh earthly or fruity scents will linger on and on.

Consider changing up the meal agenda. Try preparing something that you don’t do too often.

If you’re going outdoor, then go for non-meat. Or, fish if that. If you’re doing upscale, then go for the high-quality plates and silver wear. The heavier feel will make the meal taste even better!

Ignore the doors and the neighbors. But, before you go on your staycation, just tell your neighbors and everyone else that you’re going on a staycation! So, while you might seem like you’re home, you’re not! Explain this to them, and then stick to your guns!

Try going out at times that you don’t generally leave the house. You want to make sure that things are not business as usual.

Get some board games for the kids, and a few good books to read. This is the perfect time to sit down as a family unit and do some reading or getting reacquainted with each other.

Also, if the house needs anything new and major, this might be the perfect time to take full advantage! For example, if you wanted to paint the living room.

Anything is totally possible! You don’t need to spend countless dollars to go on a great vacation, because you can do it all from the comfort and convenience
