Of course, using one of these will also help to keep you organized. When you are more organized you will find it simple to not only dry your dishes on time, but to also move them back to their normal place when all is said and done.

The Right Restaurant Dishes for Success

The look of the food you serve at you restaurant is just as important as how good it tastes. Therefore you do need to take some time to think about what you will use. You want to invest in something that is well made. This way the dishes can be used over and over again and still hold up.

Doing them by hand has definitely become almost obsolete. Therefore you need to make sure the dishes you choose are going to hold up well to the dish washing method you have in place. You don’t want the designs to come off or to fade during this washing process JBingGG Magic Silicone Dishwashing Gloves B07Ok58MGKD.

The majority of people use round shaped plates in their home to serve food on. You may want to offer them the same thing in your restaurant. By the same token though you may feel the urge to shake things up a bit. Oval or even square plates can be very attractive and give them something new to enjoy their meal on.

Think about the style of dishes for appetizers and side dishes as well. You will want all of your dishes to blend in well. Your guests will notice if they don’t. If you have a given theme in your restaurant then make sure the dishes will work well with it. With particular cultures of food such as Mexican or Italian there are dishes to reflect that as well.

You need to take very good care of your dishes as well. Those that have cracks or chips need to be disposed of. No customer in their right mind will be interested in eating off such an item. Make sure those that clear off the tables, that wash the dishes, and that place food onto them know to look for such problems.

How many dishes do you need to buy? This can be a very tricky question. You definitely need enough for every table in your restaurant to be full of people and each one of them to have a plate in front of them. You never want to have to hold up being able to serve meals due to not having any clean plates.

You may be concerned about how much dishes for your restaurant are going to cost you. Initially they will be quite an investment based on what you buy and the amount of them you have to purchase. Yet you will find having quality dishes on hand is one of the best ways to ensure you can continue serving great food to your customers.

HDMI 1.3 – What You Need To Know

The inevitable rule in the information age is: “if it can be digitized, it will.”
The transition from analog to digital in the video world has been quick and a key enabler of this has been HDMI, High Definition Multimedia Interface. Virtually all HD equipment utilizes HDMI to transport audio/video from the sources to the display. The original rendition of HDMI, HDMI 1.0 was released back in 2002 and has been the de facto standard for HD Video transmission. As the digital revolution has continued, HDMI has also evolved from 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and mostly recently HDMI 1.3.

Revision History:

HDMI 1.0 -Single-cable digital audio/video connection with a maximum bit rate of 4.9 Gbps. Supports up to 165Mpixels/s video (1080p60 Hz or UXGA) and 8-channel/192 kHz/24-bit audio.

HDMI 1.1 – Added support for DVD audio

HDMI 1.2 -Added support for One Bit Audio, used on Super Audio CDs, up to 8 channels. Ability for PC sources to use native RGB color-space while retaining the option to support the YCbCr CE color space JBingGG HDMI to RCA Cable Converter B07JMFC635.

HDMI 1.3– Increases single-link bandwidth to 340 MHz (10.2 Gbps)
-Optionally supports 30-bit, 36-bit, and 48-bit xvYCC with Deep Color or over one billion colors, up from 24-bit sRGB or YCbCr in previous versions.
-Incorporates automatic audio syncing (lip sync) capability.
-Supports output of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio streams for external decoding by AV receivers.

-Availability of a new mini connector for devices such as camcorders.

Do I need HDMI 1.3:

You will still get incredible HD picture quality with HDMI 1.1 and 1.2, both support 1080P. HDMI 1.3 is backwards compatible with previous versions of HDMI. Getting HDMI 1.3 display and HDMI sources will enable you to take advantage of the extra feature enhancements available. If you are in the market for a new HDTV, then it would be advisable to get one with HDMI 1.3 support. However, you should look for the specific features that are supported.

HDMI 1.3 – what is different:

On the physical layer level, all HDMI versions utilize Transmission Minimized Differential Signaling, TMDS and the physical connector looks identical. The major enhancements of HDMI 1.3 are:

Expanded Data Rate Support
HDMI 1.2 supports aggregate data rate of 4.95 Gbps.
In order to ensure that HDMI is the connectivity of the future, HDMI 1.3 has provisions to eventually double the bandwidth from 4.95 Gbps to 10.2 Gbps. For comparative purpose, USB 2.0 has a maximum data transfer rate of 480 Mbps, 1/20 of the data rate of HDMI 1.3.

From Foreplay to Positive Messages: Why People Love Romance Novels

Growing up, romances were considered the worse books to read in my house. At least certain romances were. Chick lit and high school romances were acceptable to read on occasion and classics were always fine. But traditional romances with a man and a woman embracing on the cover? Those were trashy, poorly written, and only worth reading for the sex scenes which probably made up at least half of the book’s contents.

After a certain age, I was allowed to read whatever book I wanted to, but romances were still looked down upon as the least valuable genre. However, by the time I hit middle school, romance novels were just too tempting.

Since they’re available at every place ever that sells secondhand books, it wasn’t hard for me to find romances and form my own opinions about romances. And it wasn’t long before I really liked them, so much that I started my own blog to review just them. And millions of other readers love them just as much.

There are a lot of stereotypes involving avid romance readers, like desperate spinsters, lonely women, and curious teenage girls. But the truth is, the majority of romance readers are college educated women who are married and have fulfilling lives. So even though there is a level of escapism, there’s a lot more to the appeal of romance than that.

Many women, myself included, like it for the positive messages in the books. The heroine almost always has insecurities about her body or her wits or personality and yet the hero is still completely enraptured by her. For instance, in Lord Braybrooke’s Penniless Bride by Elizabeth Rolls, Christina Daventry is incredibly insecure about her financial means, looks, and heritage. As the bastard daughter of a nobleman, she is only one wrong move away from being on the streets. However, somehow she captures the heart of Lord Braybrooke without even really trying. While people could chalk it up to the fact that she’s really beautiful without even knowing it, that’s not true in all romances. In Morning Comes Softly by DebbieMacomber, Montana rancher Travis Thompson marries a woman he doesn’t think it beautiful in the slightest. However, he ends up falling in love with her anyway. While not everyone thinks finding love is the ultimate goal in life, in romance books, it means happiness. Romance books say that everyone can find happiness without changing who they are jaipur call girl.

While the positive message is attractive to readers of all ages, others, especially teenagers, have another reason to read romances.

“They help me study for SATs,” a friend once told me, laughing. “It’s strange, but where else am I going to read words like florid, staccato, and amorous outside of vocab exercises and classics?”

She had a point. Despite my family’s thought that all romances are poorly written, I have noticed that I need to turn to the dictionary with them more than any other genre. It’s not so much that they are trying to hard to be ‘intellectual’. It’s more that there is a lot of emotion in romance books, even more than other genre because the main storyline is an emotional connection. Sometimes, ‘happy’, ‘sad’, and ‘angry’ just doesn’t cut it so the writer turns to bigger and less-used words to describe their characters and their settings. While this isn’t really a reason to read romance books, it is a bonus for some people. I know I’m not the only one who thinks so. In the guidance counselor office at my school were some romance books with the SAT study material that had been picked out for their vocab usage.

And of course, plenty of people read romance for escapism. Many like the idea of a man completely devoted and focused on them, without the distractions of social media, sports, or work. Some compare reading romance novels to foreplay because in romance books, the women always have the men’s full attention, which is also true for foreplay. For those in the teenage crowd, they like experiencing romance in the books because they are curious or their own love life is lack-luster from slim pickings at their school. But even those satisfied with their love lives love romance books for escapism because they don’t just show an ideal relationship. They also show an ideal world, where there’s always a happy ending, family reunions are fun without the stress, and bad hair days are once in a blue moon. Even dystopian worlds are considered ideal, because they are full of excitement and danger, unlike our usual, monotonous yet safe lives.

No matter what your reason is for loving romance, if you are as avid a reader as I am, you probably burn through the books easily. Sometimes I can read as many as four of them a month. Actually romance readers read more than readers of every other genre. Scribd actually had to remove the majority of their romances because the cost of the books the readers were reading exceeded the amount they were getting in subscriptions. However, it’s often hit or miss on if the romance is good or not. Even the tight genres provided by Harlequin and Silhouette can have a few duds in a brand you normally like.

Power Strips 101- How to Buy and Use a Power Strip

It is important to organize your wires so that they are out of the way, and also to use power strips or power boards to keep them in one place. After all, tangled wires can cause accidents and even fires. Good power strips can prevent this.

What exactly are power strips?

Power strips are devices with several sockets that can be used for plugging different appliances. Because it is flexible, it is commonly used in areas that have several appliances like kitchens, living rooms, and entertainment rooms. Although power strips are convenient, they can also cause accidents and fires if used improperly Power Strip with USB Charging Ports B07DLMGXMC.

Different types

Power strips have different functions. Some allow you to plug in another power strip to create multiple connections. Some power boards have special extras like switches so you can turn the unit off when it is in use.

Power boards are also made for different applications. There are commercial, office, and hospital-grade power boards. Commercial power boards come in floor mount, wall mount, or workbench designs. They are great for ordinary appliances. Office power boards, in the other hand, have more output receptacles to plug in more devices. They are built more securely for different equipment. Finally, a hospital power strip has a 15-amp capacity and a 120-volt power. It also prevents automatic shut off.


When misused, power strips can cause accidents such as fire and may also damage your appliances. That’s why it is important to buy only the high-quality units that have extra features such as thermal sensors. Power boards that have higher receptacles are also more convenient to use.

Top Ten Air Purifier Questions

1. Do I really need an air purifier in my home?
It depends on several factors, including your own comfort level and what the
indoor air quality is in your home. There are several factors to take into
consideration, however.
First and foremost, many health organizations agree that indoor air quality
is often worse than outdoor air quality. In fact, for many people, indoor
allergens and irritants such as dust, smoke and pet dander may be two to five
times as bad in their homes as outdoors!
There are several indications that you may benefit from an air purifier in
your home. Reasons to get an air purifier include Home Air Purifier Quality Monitor B07JFNFXR1:

  • Allergy symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes and runny nose
  • Itchy, dry skin or frequent skin rashes
  • Asthma or other breathing problems
  • Being or living with a smoker
  • Owning indoor pets
  • Mold or mildew in your home

2. Do all air purifiers clean the same kinds of pollutants from the air?
No. Although all air cleaners clean certain particulates from the air, there are
differences in what and how they clean. Some remove dust and particulates such
as pet dander and smoke very effectively, while others will actually eliminate
bacteria, viruses and molds and mildew. But very few will do all of these
things, so be sure to read the article Understanding Air Purifiers for a more
detailed outline of what each type can and can’t do to improve the air quality
in your home.
3. How do I know what size air purifier to get for my home?
Actually, most air purifiers are designed for individual room use rather than
for the whole home. Unless you have an air purifier or air filtration system
that has been installed on your heating or air conditioning unit, you should get
separate units for each room or living space.
The reason you need separate units for each room is because effectiveness is
affected by air flow, and walls mean no air circulation. Each room will need its
own unit.
To determine what size you need, look for the CADR number. This number indicates
the Clean Air Delivery Rate, which should always equal at least 2/3 the total
square footage of the room you will be using the air purifier in. For example, a
10′ X 12′ room has 120′ square feet, and needs a purifier with a CADR number of
at least 80.
4. What is Ozone and is it safe for indoors?
Ozone is a tasteless, colorless gas made up of three oxygen atoms. It can be
found in the upper atmosphere and is naturally produced by thunderstorms during
electric discharge.
It is perfectly safe indoors if kept at acceptable levels (between .02 and .05
parts per million), just like many other type of naturally occurring gasses that
aren’t harmful to us at certain levels. Ozone air purifiers have been developed
to produce the correct amount of ozone to purify the air without reaching
harmful levels.
5. How often will I need to change or clean the filter in my air purifier?
It depends on several factors, including how large the room is and what type and
size of air purifier you have. Some will need to be changed or cleaned monthly,
others more often.
It is very important to check your filter regularly and follow the recommended
schedule the manufacturer suggests, since the efficiency of the air purifier
relies on proper maintenance.
6. What exactly is a Micron?
A micron is a measurement of the size of a particulate in the air. One micron is
1/25,400 inch (roughly 100 times smaller than a single strand of hair).
Obviously, a micron is far too small to be seen. For the purpose of choosing an
air purifier, most types are considered very efficient if they can filter
airborne pollutants to .3 microns.
7. How much should I pay for an air purifier?
It’s very hard to determine what you should spend on an air purifier, because
price doesn’t always guarantee quality. Doubtless you should be willing to spend
enough to get a high-quality product, but protect your investment by making sure
your air purifier comes with a warranty.
When buying an air purifier, also take into account the cost of any replacement
filters and the electricity to run the unit.
8. Will an air purifier be noisy?
An air purifier with a fan in it will have some noise. HEPA filters, for
instance, have fans to pull the air through the filter itself, although improved
casings and quieter fans have been developed for noise reduction.
Ionic and ozone units don’t usually have a fan because they use an electrostatic
charge or ozone, so they are completely silent. If they combine their technology
with a filtration system or a fan to boost air circulation over the plates,
their will be some sound, but this will be minimal and these fans may be shut
off when you wish.
In general, the noise level of even an air purifier with a fan is low enough
that it isn’t intrusive.
9. What rooms should I put an air purifier in?
The rooms you use the most are the most important rooms for air purifier use.
Your living area, such as a family room or den, should have an air cleaner,
especially if you have allergies or pets that are in the room regularly, or if
anyone in the household smokes.
Bedrooms are also a good idea, since allergies and irritants can disturb our
sleep. Clean, fresh air has been proven to produce more restful sleep and reduce
night breathing problems while sleeping such as stuffiness, post-nasal drip and
night coughing.
Finally, consider getting an air purifier in the bathroom, where odors, mold and
mildew are prone to linger. An air cleaner in here can not only make it fresher
and more pleasant, but reduce the amount of mold and mildew in the air so that
your bathroom will be less of a breeding ground for germs.
10. Where in each room should my air purifier be located?
For any air purifier, it is most important to locate it near the most activity
or traffic flow so that there is plenty of air circulation around the air
filter. This will increase the air exchange rate and make the air cleaning more
With a HEPA filter, it is best to locate it near an open area to ensure air
movement all around. For an ozone air purifier, you should try to locate unit
higher rather than lower, since ozone molecules are heavier than oxygen and will
tend to drift downward. The same logic applies to ionic air purifiers, which
release charged particles into the air.

The Right Beard Care Products Could Make All The Difference

Taking Care of Your Beard

A beard is not a Chia Pet. You don’t just add water and let it go, unless you want to look like your neighborhood’s Chia Pet. Real beardsmen – those growing lush, shiny, healthy beards not offensive to anyone who comes near – know that having a beard is a responsibility. You have to take care of your beard for it to look great on you. The key to taking care of your beard is using quality beard care products.

Below are some pointers of grooming and facial hair care. Remember these aspects of facial hair grooming using quality beard care products as directed by their labels and your beard will look its best.

Keep it clean

Facial hair needs to be regularly cleansed or it starts to look like roadkill. Use quality beard care products to keep your beard clean, like Edwin Jagger Beard Wash. Never use regular shampoo or soap, as these will dry your delicate facial skin and the facial hair, itself. Always ensure you rinse all wash residue using only warm water. Hot water is also drying.

Nourish your beard

Particularly if your beard is coarse or unruly, using a good beard oil will restore moisture and make your facial hair appear healthy, well-groomed and refined. It will also encourage healthy growth so your beard will become its best. Edwin Jagger Beard Oil is made of natural and plant derived ingredients, so it is great for your facial hair and does not contain chemicals to strip or dry the beard or underlying skin Mens gifts for Men Beard Care Growth B078N1DBY9.

Keep it well-manicured

Just like the hedges on your front lawn, an unkempt beard will become a thinned-out, gawky, scraggly mass of confusion. The difference is that your hedges are not with you everywhere you go and most people don’t form an impression of you according to how your boxwood bushes look.

A badly maintained beard does not just look bad. It also feels bad to anyone who comes near for a kiss or a moment of cheek-to-cheek intimacy. Unless you want to live like a monk, you need to keep your beard well-maintained and trimmed using quality beard care products.

Gillette Mach3 razors have long been loved for a close, comfortable shave. They are great for cleaning up the edges of your beard on cheeks, jawline and neck. This is something you will want to do daily for your best face forward. Use a quality shaving soap or a shaving cream like Taylor of Bond Street Sandalwood Shaving Cream to protect your skin and get the most out of the experience.

Other shaving essential care products you will want to keep handy for great beard maintenance include beard trimming scissors, a beard comb, mustache comb and shaving cream brush.

Snow Boots

Buying snow boots for children or for boys, girls or even for little kids? Good thing about snow boots is they don’t differ much and have almost the common features as women’s snow boots and men’s snow boots. But you need to make a difference between winter boots and snow boots as they are worn in wet conditions too, unlike the former.

Winter boots specifically cater to long time snow wearing in little wet or muddy condition and rarely offer features commonly found in snow boots. Consider the following points when buying snow boots Resistant Booties for Men Women Kids B071DV97M3.

1. Height of snow boots must be sufficient to prevent snow entry. Ideally they extend beyond ankles but usually above the pants’ hemline. Generally they are 7.9″ tall for both women and men.

2. The uppers need to have leathers or synthetic leathers with seams taped or sealed for wetness protection. Fleeced cuffs with or without drawcords prevent snow entry to protect from cold and frost bite. Alternately, North Face Boots and Salomon Boots have tested successfully with soft acrylic wools in place of wools. Sorel Boots offers vulcanized rubber toe and side covers.

3. Look for soles; 100% waterproofing needs to be the only invariable option. Consider ease of cleaning also, most of them can be just hosed off.

4. Check for the removable thermofelt inner boots which you may need for long treks.

5. Wear the snow boots before making the decision. Sizes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and from women’s snow boots to men’s snow boots. You need to be carefully even while changing your old brand; for example, Merrell Boots’ size may differ from others’.

How to Make Your Own Fun Fizzy Bath Bombs

What is the best way to unwind after a stressful day? Jump into a hot bath and feel those tight muscles start to relax. Feel the tensions release as you sink into the warmth around you. What could make this better? Bath bombs! Imagine champagne fizzing all around you, tiny bubbles bursting against your skin. Well that’s the effect of a soothing batch bomb. Not only are the fun to put in your batch but also fun to make are fantastic presents too. As they fizz they release skin softening properties and a lovely soothing aroma to go with, or change your mood.

Making your own bath bombs is a simple step by step process with all the ingredients easily accessible from your local store. As for equipment, you don’t need anything special you can use everyday items such as spoons, shot glasses or ice cube trays for moulds or even an old tennis ball cut in half for your large round bath bomb. It’s surprising what can you can find when you start looking. Failing that take a trip to your local craft store and be imaginative in shapes that you look for, don’t always go for the obvious. Make a note that the smaller ones are easier to make, especially for your first time, as they tend not to crumble as easily.

Now you have sorted your mould to make sure you have the rest of your equipment at hand Neutral-handmade USA Gift Idea B07HQS94KN.

• A metal or glass bowl. (Plastic can be used but does absorb the oils and so can taint food mixed after so keep it just for your bath bombs)

• Spray bottle (This makes adding the water a little easier)

• Gloves

• Sieve

Now we are ready to get started. There are many recipes that can be used but here is a basic bath bomb recipe.


• 1 cup citric acid

• 2 cups baking soda

• 20-30 drops essential oil depending on strength and personal taste

• Food colorant ( a dry pigment is best)

• Water or witch hazel (in your spray bottle)


Sieve together the citric acid and baking soda making a fine powder. If you don’t get this you will be left with a grainy mixture.

Add your colour pigment but not too much. It will be darker once the liquid is added. Then add your fragrance oil bit at a time until you get the strength you want.

Now for the tricky bit! Using your spray bottle, spray in a little water/witch hazel while mixing at the same time with the other hand. Or you could cheat and get someone to help you with this. The mix needs to be crumbly but sticks together when squeezed, a bit like wet sand. Don’t be tempted to add too much water as it will start fizzing.

The Mini Notebook – 5 Buyers Guide Tips

So, you’ve decided to buy a mini notebook and have no idea where to start. No problem! It is no where near as overwhelming as you think. Just like anything that’s new, there will be a slight learning curve. Things always go easier though when you’ve got someone showing you the right path to take. Hopefully, I can help you learn the little things to look out for that will make a big difference in how much you use and enjoy your netbook. Below is a list of 5 things to look out for when buying your first mini notebook.

Screen Size

There are two popular screen sizes that are available for mini notebooks; the 9-inch and 10-inch. Here is a quick comparison between the two.

  • 10-inch Pro’s – Easier to read / Larger keyboard
  • 10-inch Con’s – Higher price / Overall larger in size
  • 9-inch Pro’s – Smaller overall size / Cheaper to purchase
  • 9-inch Con’s – Smaller screen size / Smaller keyboard

After personally purchasing a 9-inch before the 10-inch models were available I can honestly say I wish I would of purchased the 10-inch model mini notebook. The downsides aren’t that bad and I can’t even begin to tell you how much nicer it is to type on the 10-inch keyboard compared to the 9-inch, it literally is night and day different Mini PC Compute Stick B073JHZCML.


This was the one thing that many of my friends didn’t realize at first when using my mini notebook, it doesn’t have a CD-ROM drive. I got mixed feels from them on how much of a deal breaker not having a CD-ROM was. Luckily there are some easy solutions to this problem.

  • Portable External CD-ROM Drive – You can purchase an external CD-ROM drive from various places online that connects to your mini notebook with a USB cord. They typically run between $15.00-$60.00 depending on things such as size, style, and the type of media they play. For example a model that plays and burns DVD’s will cost a bit more than a standard CD drive.
  • USB Drive / Download Programs – Since I don’t install software all that often, this is the option I’ve gone with. Most CD’s I get with programs to install can be downloaded from the specific companies website and the version you get from the website is almost always more up-to-date. For the few times I did need to install some software from a CD I just put the CD into any desktop computer and copied it over to my USB flash drive. Then you can plug that drive into your netbook and install it just like it was on the CD.

Operating System

Most people, myself included just assumed that any type of computer just came with some version of Windows. With the introduction of the mini notebook a lot of manufacturers sold them with a version of Linux installed. One of the biggest advantages of Linux is that it’s open source and free. That really helps cut down on the price of your netbook. If you are just using your mini notebook as a secondary laptop to carry around for quick web surfing then it might be worth it to look into a model that has a version of Linux installed instead of Windows XP or Windows 7. If you aren’t up for learning a new operating system I would definitely stick with a version of Windows. If you want to compare the Linux to Windows stop by any of your local electronics stores such as Best Buy. They should have a variety of mini notebooks in stock with both the Linux and Windows operating systems installed to test out.

Bath Bombs – The Different Handmade Types Available!

It’s not surprising to know that most people these days are on the lookout for handmade products. The credit goes to the internet for spreading awareness about the benefits of handmade products especially when it comes to products like soaps, shampoos, lotions and so on. Similar is the case when it comes to bath bombs (a.k.a. tub ballistics) as well. Recently, it has been observed that the usage of these products has increased. In other words, numerous retailers are selling handmade ballistics online and thousands of people them every day Organic Large Ball Gift Set For Girls/Boys B079Z292G8.

You can too buy them online easily but before that it is important for you to know what types are available. Here is a list of some of the most common ones around:

The Standard Handmade Type:

The basic ones are made from citrus acid, baking soda, essential oils and minerals. Artificial food colors, soap mould and artificial fragrances are often added to these bath bombs. You will find two categories in the basic type; the granular form and the smoother form. Remember, the granular form is the one which is not blended well therefore it is of lower quality than the other category.

The Moisturizing Type:

The moisturizing bath bomb is the one which has more or less the same ingredients as the basic ones with the addition of Epsom salt. The addition of Epsom salt makes these bombs rich in moisture. People with dry skins or sensitive skins should go for the ones with Epsom to reap additional benefits. The standard ones can be a bit harsh on their skin.

Fizzy and Milky Bombs:

If you want a moisture rich bath bomb which is fizzy as well then this type is for you. These bath bombs are filled with Epsom salt and citrus acid so that the moisture level provided is high and at the same time the fizzines is good too.
