2010–10 Movies You Should Watch(I)

Monday, August 16th, 2010

There’s no better time than take a breath, hereâ??s the list of top ten movies to look forward to in 2010, if you like it, just open your calendar and mark down a few to catch in the new year. Hope you’ll enjoy!

 

1. ”The Wolfman” (Feb. 12). 

 

Several delayed openings have resulted in this horror remake landing atop Valentine’s Day weekend. Surly Lawrence Talbot (Benicio Del Toro) alights to England in the 1800s, where his father (Anthony Hopkins) fills him in on the family curse â?? just before Larry gets hairy following a werewolf attack. Before you can say “Maria Ouspenskaya,” the comely lass (Emily Blunt) Larry loves has to pack some Mace in her bodice when she walks the moors.It’s not fair for vampires to corner the market on romantic brooding.

 

2. ”Shutter Island” (Feb. 19).

 

Another movie shunted from 2009, but this one’s different: Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of a Dennis Lehane potboiler stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a 1950s detective investigating creepy goings-on at an island prison. Things, of course, are not as they seem. Mark Ruffalo, Jackie Earle Haley, Patricia Clarkson and Michelle Williams co-star. New York’s master filmmaker Scorsese tackles his first full-on thriller since “Cape Fear.”

 

3. ”Alice in Wonderland” (March 5).

 

The line “A perfect movie for Tim Burton” has been used so often, it almost means nothing â?? especially after such hit-or-miss projects as “Sleepy Hollow,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Sweeney Todd.” Still, it’s hard not to groove on the beautiful, weirdo synergy in Burton going through the looking glass to bring Lewis Carroll’s fantastical tale to the screen. Newcomer Mia Wasikowska is the girl who falls down the hole, Johnny Depp is the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway are the Red and White Queens, respectively. Because images this freaky usually come with a hangover, you gonna like it.

 

4. ”Date Night” (April 9).

 

A bored, suburban married couple (Steve Carell and Tina Fey) try to feel special by having a big evening out in NYC. Then, a case of mistaken identity throws them into dangerous situations that rekindle their interest in each other. Ray Liotta is around to cause trouble; Shawn Levy (“Night at the Museum”) directs.

 

Why you’ll see it: If anyone can make a familiar comedy concept such as this seem like something wild, it’s Carell and Fey in the new decade’s first deadpan-humor-a-thon.

 

5. ”Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps” (April 23).

 

After trading in his suspenders and suits for prison garb, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) serves his time and returns to New York, where he tutors another young hotshot (Shia LaBeouf) in the lies and lows of The Street. But this kid’s a risky investment, as he’s dating Gekko’s daughter (Carey Mulligan). Oliver Stone again directs. Greed may not be as good as it was in 1987, but it still makes the world go ’round.

Why You Should Stay At An Isle Of Wight Holiday Park

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

If you are a family or even a couple who are looking to go away somewhere in England, then you should consider staying at an Isle of Wight holiday park. There are a huge variety of parks, from quiet family parks with a relaxing atmosphere, overlooking picturesque sceneries, to ones which offer lively kids fun clubs and pools.
Holiday parks near Ryde are ideal, as Ryde boasts shops and supermarkets, golf, an indoor pool, an ice rink, bowling and go karting facilities and miles of beaches.
Parks in Bembridge are on the east of the Isle of Wight, nestled amongst rural countryside, alongside beautiful private sandy beaches. Bembridge is a 10 minute drive from Fishbourne and 30 minutes from East Cowes and Yarmouth Ferry Terminals.
If you prefer a quieter place to stay, then this area is ideal for walking, cycling & fishing with beaches a 10 minute walk away. The parks cater for everyone wishing for a peaceful holiday in clean, British quality assured accommodation. St Helen’s village green has shops, pubs, restaurants and bus stops, so is well-served.
The majority of holiday parks are self catering accommodation, which gives you and your family the freedom to be independent with eating arrangements. You can either cook in your fully equipped kitchen, or eat out. Most prices start from around £200 for a three night stay. Everything on the Island is within easy reach either by car or bus which regularly runs from outside most parks’ entrance. Whether you book accommodation or camping and touring, there are breathtaking views all around. There are many woodland and coastal walk ways, cycle paths and there are private slipways which lead you directly to a beautiful secluded sandy beach with little shops and cafés.

Father’s Day Gifts – What Should I Get For the Special Dad?

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Father’s day gift ideas: mug, tie, golf club, t-shirts, grilling utensils, any new ideas? Sure! In my experience, you want to get dad something he’ll use and enjoy. Key word = ENJOY. Commemorative stuff using photos and engraving is very heartfelt, but you can’t do that every year and you’ll run out of shelf space. Here are a few great ideas for the man who already has everything:

Get a free iPad to gift your father this father’s day. Click Here to know more.

1) Does your dad have boat or just like to sail? Check out some nautical-themed gifts like barware. Chances are he doesn’t own a large collection, and he’ll enjoy sipping a stiff drink out his double old-fashioned while sailing the high seas.

2) How about a bar in general? Does your dad sport one in his basement or out on the patio by the pool? Check out some themed barware to suit his style–there are plenty of gifts to choose from that can be delivered to your doorstep, like an actual mobile tiki bar or a cowboy hat ice bucket. Both fun and functional, and encourages dad to let loose a little and enjoy life!

3) Maybe your dad isn’t much of a drinker. That’s ok! What does he like? I know my husband is geeky and anything in the Apple store will suit his fancy. I’ve had great luck in the past just walking in and talking to one of the salespeople. I tell them the hardware he has and they showcase all the cool new gadgets he can use. Something your dad might like is an iTrip or something similar, so he can play his iPod or iPhone through the car stereo. There are plenty of variations of this device, so make sure you ask around at the store.

4) Sports fan? Get him tickets to a game. Maybe you don’t live close to a big stadium so how about an amateur team nearby? Amateur baseball games can be a lot of fun, cost less, and are family friendly. You may even be able to get a group together and have a bbq before or after. You dad will definitely remember the game day in his honor.

5) My thoughts on coupon books. Ahh, the age-old coupon book. You and the kids make one giving dad specific chores and fun stuff he can cash in on. However, in my experience, dad rarely cashes in on all his coupons. In my opinion, the best way to give him something is to just do it. Sneak his car out early in the morning and have it detailed (you’ll have to be creative with the logistics on this one if you want it to be a surprise). Maybe there’s some big chore he’s been meaning to get around to and keeps putting it off because it’s a big, yucky job. Hire someone to do it for him. A great surprise would be to leave the house for the day and have it done when you get back! Obviously, time and money can be a big factor in this gift, so be resourceful and only spend money you have. Don’t rack up debt on a father’s day gift as this may cause him more stress than satisfaction.

Overall, try to tap into dad’s fun side and find him something he’ll enjoy. Remember, as tempting as it is to get him something YOU want him to use (like a yoga mat, unless he’s into that, by all means get him one!), this is his special day.

What Types Of Articles Should You Write?

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

To begin, are you aware that there are different types of articles? Of course there are! There are a total of 5 types of articles, namely the tips article, the story article, the personal experience article, the facts article, and the recommendation article. Let’s take a closer look at each of them.

The tips article, as its name suggest, is an article that provides tips on a particular subject, such as playing golf or designing and sewing dresses. The tips are usually numbered, or listed in bullets. Most of all, the title includes the number of tips that will be covered. An example of a tips article – “5 Tips to playing golf”

The story article tells a story. It may be true or fiction, the trick is to keep the reader reading!

Next, the personal experience article – it’s all about you and your experience that relates to your niche market in one way or another. For instance, “How I learn to play golf like Tiger Woods” would most likely be a personal experience article.

The facts article is all about facts. It attempts to inform readers using proven facts in its contents. An example would be “What Golf Does to Your Body” would be a facts article, because you can draw facts from medical science and research, to provide a comprehensive content and back that content up with scientific proof.

Lastly, we have the recommendation article. Such articles are used to promote a product, but the content of the article must be informative in nature. For example, if you are recommending junior golf clubs, start by informing how the high quality, unique junior golf club can raise the kids’ interest level and have a great game of golf. Most importantly, use you own experience to show your satisfaction on how your kids can have more fun playing golf. Remember, do not get too “salesman-like” in the article.

Usually, writers combine different types of articles into one article. It is encouraged but watch out that you do not run over 750 words in length. The objective is to choose the article, which you want to convey your message and to get the readers visit your web site.

Things You Should Know About Moving Companies

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

If you’re planning your next big residential move or office move, you’re becoming aware of the issues involved in transporting a house or office full of belongings, furniture, and people. In the back of your mind, you’re thinking that you can do this by yourself and yet some of your valuable property might probably be damaged during the move. Part of the cost of moving? On the other hand you could hire a moving company and know that they do this sort of thing everyday and have all the people and transport equipment to get things done efficiently.

When faced with the cost of hiring a moving company for a cross-town move, most people will round up their relatives, friends and even neighbours to get their property loaded up to the moving van or into a moving pod. In some cases, that’s fine, yet given how mobile many people, families and businesses are today, you can only rely on your friends and relatives so often. You’ll wear out your welcome if they have to take several days off of their precious free time to help others move. If they’re getting older as most people are today, they’re not going to appreciate the possibility of getting injured while carrying your heavy property items such as sofas, fridges, beds, tables, TVs, and desks.

The work involved in moving isn’t for everyone, yet professional moving companies are skilled in making moves go smoothly, from planning, to safe packaging to trouble free transport.

Moving to Florida

My sister and her family are in the process of moving to Florida where she and her sons will join her husband who is now working there. They will be using a big moving company to manage the logistics of the move. All she and her sons have to do is drive down to Florida. If we had to help them with the move and pack up a house full of furniture, kitchenware, bikes, golf clubs, hockey equipment, baseball equipment, fishing gear, desks, chairs, TVs and computers, it would take two days. Even then, I don’t think we could pack it properly in the moving van or truck. It would undoubtedly shift during the trip despite our expert rope tying tricks and special packing system. The truth is, we don’t know what we’re doing, and their furniture would be all banged up with loosened or broken legs when they opened the moving van doors down in Sarasota.

That’s when the ugly surprises happen. When you find your TV doesn’t work and your family heirlooms are going to need some serious “crazy glue” repairs, you get angry with yourself for not being cautious. For the sake of a few dollars, your belongings get damaged and their appearance is diminished. If you have a plasma TV, you can kiss it goodbye if you try to pack it yourself.

Yes, everyone is upwardly mobile these days and the task of an international, interstate, or cross-town move is on many to-do lists. One way to cross off the details of that big project is to hire a professional moving company.

Professional Moving Services

Big national movers offer a wide range of move planning and related moving services. They can handle all relocation services from reserving the moving van to packing your property to helping you with childcare and real estate related services in the city you’re moving to. These relocation services shouldn’t be underplayed. If you’re on your way to a strange city or a foreign country, you’ll need a little help in making the adjustment. You may need to store your belongings while you’re gone and these companies usually have big temperature and environmentally controlled storage warehouses and units that can keep your property clean and dry over long periods of time. Contrasting that with having your belongings collecting mould in someone’s basement or garage.

Moving firms have relocation specialists that handle these projects frequently. They know what you’re going through emotionally and in terms of preparation. They can help in many ways. As an example, they provide home marketing assistance including home disposition and in the home-sale process, and even property management. For employee transfers to new cities, they can coordinate the details of managing the employee’s property until the employee returns home. They can find short-term housing for the transferee, and find a new home for them. These real estate related services include area orientations, broker selection, negotiations, pre-purchase appraisals and closing.

You’re no doubt a smart, capable person and can master all of these transaction issues at your new location, however, if you’re moving to a new job in a strange city, how will you find the time? You can only handle so much stress and you’ll need support in your new hometown.
Let go of your image of moving companies as a bunch of sweaty, strong guys that push furniture into the back of a moving van. These companies plan and carry out moving tasks in a professional manner and offer moving and relocation services that will help you and your family better adjust to your new location. It’s important to get off on the right foot in your new home location. You’ll have schools to find for your children and you’ll be spending time just discovering how to get to your new work place and around town.

On office moves, you will have strict times and locations by which you can manage your move. Certainly, your staff can assist in the transfer and organization however; it is best to have a professional handle the logistics and moving from office building to office building. You can avoid damage and hard feelings towards employees who were trying to be careful before they dropped something.

International Moving

For your next International move, interstate, local and office move, call a professional moving firm such as Humboldt Storage & Moving Company.

Should We Purchase A Country Club Membership?

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Are you thinking of purchasing a country club membership at a local country club? Compared to playing at different golf courses all of the time, purchasing a country club membership has many advantages and benefits. What are the advantages to owning a country club membership? Here is a list of five reasons to purchase a country club membership.


1. If you play golf on a regular basis, it could be more cost effective to become a member of a local country club. This way you are not shelling out a green fee every single time you play. In addition, most memberships would include your entire family. This would allow your spouse and children play or learn to play the great game of golf. The great part about this is that you can get your kids involved in this great game. Your child or children can become involved in the junior golf program that is offered and this may give you a way to spend more family time or one-on-one time with your child or children.


2. Make no mistake, when you purchase a country club membership you are purchasing a lifestyle as well as a new social network. You will meet others with similar interests as yours at the golf course, pool or wine tasting. Many join a club just for the business connections that they are able to secure to help them grow their business.


3. Most clubs administer a handicap system. As you complete rounds of golf, you will turn in your scores and the handicap system will keep track of your handicap according to USGA Rules. The system should give you your monthly handicap as well as a local or a trend handicap. This is important as you begin to play in club tournaments. as a handicap will be required.


4. Most clubs have an active golf tournament program. The club golf tournaments are administered for Men, Ladies, Seniors, Juniors and Couples. First, opposed to what newer golfers and many high handicappers believe, these club golf tournaments are not scary. Club golf tournaments are a great way to test where your skills are currently. Club golf tournaments are broken down into flights. This simply means if you have a golf tournament of one hundred players, it is typical to have ten flights. This equates to you competing against the nine people with the handicap closest to yours.


5. People tend to practice golf where they play golf. Most clubs have good practice facilities that will allow you to practice all aspects of your game. Many country clubs have full service driving ranges that will allow you to practice half-wedge shots to the full swings with your driver. You should also make sure that the practice putting green is in similar shape and speed to the putting greens on the golf course.


If you are considering a local country club membership, consider the points made above to make the correct choice for you and your family. A country club membership can become an important part of where a family can spend quality time together.

Golf Drill Practice Pre Game Warm Up Should Be Routine

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Did you ever find yourself rushing out onto the first tee box without warming up? Most of those games were a struggle. Right? I know I have struggled and ended up with a bad round, even though I have been playing for some time now. The misdirected golf shots were easily excused because of the lack of games played during the season. Who was I trying to kid? I have been playing for years!

A couple games ago I rushed out to the tee box without warming up prior to swinging a golf club. My golf swing was very erratic to say the least, and so were my results on most golf holes. My golfing buddy had just started playing the game two years ago, and I had trouble staying ahead by one or two golf shots. It was so bad; I confirmed that I did not know how to play golf after all these years and I lost my golf swing.

I now realize my big mistake was stepping on the tee box thinking it was a walk in the park without warming up, and not having a practice drill before the game. The next round was the complete opposite. This time I rushed to the practice green instead of the first tee box, 20 minutes before our golf tee time. I practiced putting; chipping and my golf swing warm up exercise before I stepped onto the tee box. The results were a birdie on the first hole, birdie on the last and three birdies in-between, not to mention a couple of doubles. My confidence was not always consistent, but the birdies sure helped my score. What did I do different? I found the necessary touch and feel of my golf swing and clubs 20 minutes prior to teeing up the golf ball.

If you want to give yourself a chance of playing a good round of golf, try this warm up drill before teeing the golf ball up. This golf warm up drill should do several good things for your game, before you take your first golf swing on the tee box.

Take 2 or 3 golf balls out of the bag along with your putter. Place the golf balls a distance of approximately 30 feet away from the hole you attend to putt at. Finish each shot by putting all golf balls out with the remaining distance left. Your goal should be a 2 putt at the most. If you miss the short ones, pull the shot back and try again until you sink it. No pressure, this whole practice drill has a time limit of 20 minutes, and you have one more practice drill with an exercise warm up to follow. Sinking all short putts will help build your confidence when putting on the golf course. Try this golf drill and same distance at least twice with 3 golf balls, and three times with 2.

Leave your putter out, and take a 7 iron and wedge out, or your two favorite clubs you typically use just off and around greens. Use the 7 iron to run the ball to the hole from approximately 30 feet. out. Use the loftier club to drop it around the hole from this distance as well. Finish the hole by sinking the ball with your putter. Your goal should be a 1 putt at the most. Practice with the same clubs with a distance of 15 feet away from the hole. Try this drill and distance with both clubs a couple times. You will eventually find confidence with one or both clubs.

Step away from the green and take two of your longest irons out of the bag. Place both irons horizontally between both arms and behind the lower arc of your back. Exercise by turning the upper portion of your body in a coiled swing position. Also, stretch those golf muscles with your favorite exercise with both clubs stretched over and to the side of your body. Continue until all the cracking sounds have stopped before you move on to the last exercise.

After your stretching exercise is completed; slowly swing both clubs together feeling the weight and club head using your normal set up, as if you were to hit a golf ball. Continually swing freely trying to slightly touch the grass with the clubs, stopping and starting over now and then. Gradually take bigger, or fuller swings until you reach the top of your golf swing. Eventually replace both clubs with your driver. You will notice how light the driver will feel. Try this warm up exercise until you feel loose and limber.

This golf drill practice warm up exercise will help build your confidence prior to each game. Make it a routine to practice this golf drill at least 20 minutes prior to tee time. Just remember to tee it up with confidence in your golf swing on every golf hole, with every golf shot and putt for all 18 holes!
