Video Camera Hire and Camera Hire

Are you in need of a camera? I have to tell you about this great site that I found that allows you to rent or hire a camera. When you need a camera, you should contact Camerent which is the leader in reliable alternatives to photography. Instead of hiring someone to take photos and paying lots of money, you can rent a camera and do it yourself.

When I got married, we decided to camera hire instead of hiring a photographer. That saved us a lot of money on our wedding. You can do a Sony camera hire and rent all kinds of Sony equipment. You can also get Canon, Panasonic and Sony Camcorder equipment for hire as well. You can choose from the widest range of video and still camera and get the lowest rates on the rental equipment. The Sony z1 video camera hire is the one that we did and it worked great. They also offer Studios for hire as well.

So what are you waiting for? If you are looking for camera hire or video camera, you need to checkout Camerent today. They worked for us, and I am sure they will work for you. You can easily download their rate card from their website.

Frustrated

It was a couple of weeks ago when we purchased our new gas grill at Sears...wohooo! (bye bye charcoal grill!) and we've decided to assemble it at home. So hubby made an effort understanding the instructions and tried assembling each pieces together...but a few hours after working on it... he found out that he messed up! Whoaaaaaa....bummer! He was so mad and frustrated. And he blamed everything on the manual....lol! I should have helped him on the first place....lol! Finally after 4 hours of working together, we have managed to put each pieces together.

Overcome Your Worries

Almost everybody at some point in their life will find something that they are worried about. Even the most relaxed person may become worried at a huge important part of their life.
http://www.toonpool.com/user/1925/files/money_worries_277425.jpg
The good news is there are some steps you can take to overcome your worries and be a more relaxed person and relieve a lot stress.

William T. Riley, PhD, codirector of Virginia Commonwealth University's Anxiety Disorders Clinic, says if you do that, worry often exhausts itself and you may have less mental baggage to carry around all day. Try these simple strategies for managing everyday anxieties.

Perfectionists. You agonize over making mistakes before and after events. To relax: Try to get more comfortable making mistakes. Burn the toast on its edges or let conversations lag from time to time without always filling in the silence.

Chameleons. You worry what others think, overestimate the potential for rejection, and change behavior to suit others. To reduce your fears: Face failure and don't view it as personal rejection.

Compulsives. You check and recheck. You put your keys in your purse, but keep checking. To stop the cycle: Restrain yourself, and ultimately you'll start trusting your judgment. You may also need to keep in mind the advice above for perfectionists -- that it's O.K. to make mistakes, or forget something once in a while.

Forklifts Guide

My parents business is banana trading and they've been on this business for over 2 decades now. I remember when I was in high school, I helped them out and worked as a cashier. It's not a simple job at all because we have to drive different locations just to buy bananas. I enjoyed doing it for awhile, but then I stopped after I went to college. One thing I love about that job is going to the pier/ferry station to deliver the bananas. I liked it because I am able to ride and drive a forklift. We rent a forklift to transfer the van in one place to another after loading the bananas. My father decided to purchased a forklift a few months ago and he found out that he needs to bring it to the shop. I told him that he should tell my brother to check the internet and look for a site with information on forklift repair options. I am sure they can get some information by searching the web. I'm hoping that his forklift will get it fix soon.

Create a Lush Look

How would you like to give your patio the feel of an outdoor retreat by flanking it with flowering and foliage plants?
http://205.196.138.20/DesignGallery/22/2259e381-f61c-4abc-b843-939ee141be37_493x693.jpg
Here are some tips to create a lush look.
  • Use bright accents, such as this yellow table cloth, to add instant impact.
  • Look for elements that play off each other. The chair-back design plays well with the stair rails.
  • Mix different foliage textures to create contrast and season-long interest.
  • Select plants with a long flowering season, such as dahlias, for easy color.

Air Purifiers for Allergies

I was talking to my mother on skype the other day and she said that she is not feeling well because of her asthma. She's been having this issue since I was in high school. I'm thinking that I should buy her a new air purifier for Mother's Day! I also would like to get one for hubby because he is allergic to pollens and dust. Do you know that air purifiers can remove up to 99.97% of particulates in the air in your home or business? Air purifier is a a great relief for people who have problems with some kind of particle such as dust, pollen, pet dander, mold spores, and dust mite feces can act as allergens, triggering allergies in sensitive people. If you are planning on getting air purifiers for allergies, you should check some information first before considering buying one. There are lots of people that needs air purifier without even knowing, but if you're exposed to tobacco smoke, have allergies, a dusty house, pets, or have a medical sensitivity to something that gets in the air, you can get a good deal of benefit from reducing the pollutants in your air supply.

Then she came up to me and said :

Are you ready to laugh? Here are some funny marriage quotes that you might like. Enjoy!
http://www.wakulla.com/images/stories/OneTimeWHSEvents/WakullaHigh/Prom2009/prom%20couple%20clipart.jpg
Nuns: Women who marry God. If they divorce Him, do they get half the universe?

Perfection is what American women expect to find in their husbands, but English women only hope to find in their butlers. -- W. Somerset Maugham

Republican boys date Democratic girls. They plan to marry Republican girls, but feel they're entitled to a little fun first.

Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Shotgun wedding: a case of wife or death.

Spinster: A bachelor's wife.

Suicide is belated acquiescence in the opinion of one's wife's relatives.

Question: Ted Kennedy: "Where was George?"
Answer: Dry, sober, and at home with his wife

The days just before marriage are like a snappy introduction to a tedious book.

To heck with marrying a girl who makes biscuits like her mother--I want to marry one who makes dough like her father.

Camera Critters: Flamingo

Camera Critters
Here's my Camera Critters entry this weekend, Pink Flamingo. Photos were taken when we went to visit the Sacramento Zoo a few months ago. For more entries or would like to join us, just click the button above. Have a wonderful weekend!
The American Flamingo is the official name of the pink flamingos.
Their pink or reddish color comes from the algae, diatoms, and small crustaceans the birds eat. They also eat aquatic insects. Flamingos eat with their head upside down in the water, so they can suck water and food in with the front of their bill. Mud and water drain out the back of the bill. The food is caught by finger-like projections called lamellae in the beak. Flamingos hold their breath when feeding.

Flamingos run to gather speed when taking off. They flap their wings almost continuously in flight. They fly when startled or to migrate. The speed of a flock can reach 31 to 37 miles per hour. They can fly 300 miles to reach a new habitat.

Ancient China Doll

Yehey! I got a parcel yesterday from China. Well I have been waiting for this parcel for a long time, glad it came in great shape. I bought this on ebay for 99 cents and paid $16 bucks for shipping and handling....waaaaaaa! I have 4 Asian dolls now (Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, and China). I should have buy a Filipino doll when we went to the Philippines...lol!
This doll is one of the "beauty ladies of China". She is one of the 4 Chinese women who renowned for their most beauty in legendary ancient China. The Four Beauties are the most beautiful and significant women in ancient.

Their stories all are based on fact but they are also steeped in legend. The stories of the Four Beauties remained famous until today because of their effect on the Ancient Chinese Emperors and Kingdoms with whom they were involved. Some of the Four Beauties brought kingdoms and dynasties the ruin and most of them ended their lives in tragedy.
Xi Shi was a legendary beauty of the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 B.C.) in ancient China, "An apperance of Xi Shi is said to be so entrancingly beautiful that fish would forget how to swim and sink away from the surface when she walks by".

She grow sweeter with each passing year. I’m so glad that God gave me a daughter like her and I’m so proud to be her mother. Happy birthday Akesh! Always remember that we are always here for you and we always love you!
