How Diamonds Are Cut

In their most natural form, diamonds are –
well – quite ugly. They have no luster or shine,
and in fact, look like nothing more than
broken glass. A diamond must be cut, and
then polished before it actually becomes a
thing of beauty.

Diamonds are cut with saws, into round
shapes. From the rounded shape, other
shapes may be cut, such as heart shapes
– but the shape is less important than the
quality of the cutting that is being done. If
the diamond is poorly cut, it will lose light,
and it will not sparkle and shine very well.
Each facet of the diamond must be
carefully cut into the geometrical shapes
that allow the diamond to sparkle and
shine, then the entire diamond is cut into
a specific shape, such as an emerald cut
or a princess cut diamond.

Once the cut is done, the diamond is put into
a dop, which resembles a cup with another
diamond – only a diamond is strong enough
to smooth the edges of another diamond.
Once the diamond has been cut and shaped,
and had the edges smoothed in the dop, it is
polished on a scaif or a diamond polishing

Google Adsense: Don’ts for Using the Google Adsense Program

Google Adsense is a fun and easy way to make extra money. It’s important to follow the rules though as Google is serious about the integrity of this program. Not following the rules could result in your Google Adsense account being terminated. Here are a few Don’ts for using the program:


Never, ever, ever click on your own ads. Google Adsense makes it very clear this won’t be tolerated.

Don’t ask your friends and family to click on your ads. Rather, earn money by referring them to the Google Adsense program.

Don’t participate in the Google Adsense program strictly for the money. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It will take time and hard work to make a profit.

Don’t worry if you don’t understand everything the first day. Although the Google Adsense program is extremely user-friendly, it may take a little time to integrate all the facets of the program. Be patient and above all, have fun!

Hopefully, these helpful tips will ease you into using the program and help you avoid mistakes that could possibly cost you a lot of time or money.

Disneyland Surprises For Yourself and Loved Ones

If you would like to surprise someone who will be
traveling with you to Disneyland, you can easily do
this by using the Disneyland Vacation Planning
Service. This service has many different services that
can be performed for you, but one of the best ones is
the Surprise service.

Simply contact the Vacation Planning department,
and tell them who the surprises will be for, which
Resort hotel you will be staying at and what your
budget is for the surprises. You will also need to tell
them when you would like the surprise deliveries to
be made, and what type of gifts you are interested in.
They will also want to know who the favorite Disney
character is of the person that you want to surprise.

After providing all of this information, your credit card
information will be required. You can be sure that the
amount charged to your credit card will not exceed
your surprise budget that you have set. This is a great
way to add more value to your Disney experience, and
to constantly experience great anticipation of the next
surprise to come!

Aspen Nightlife – Music in the Mountains

There is always something of interest going on
in Aspen, and September is no different. During
the month of September, every year, JAS
comes to Snowmass. JAS, or Jazz Aspen
Snowmass, began in 1991 to honor the art of
Jazz in the Roaring Fork Valley. It has now
become a music attraction that lasts all
summer long, with the biggest celebration
coinciding with Labor Day weekend.

While this is a Jazz celebration, for all intents
and purposes, all types of music are
celebrated, including reggae and rock-n-roll.
Famous musicians and singers from around
the world attend the four day Music in the
Mountains celebration.

All events take place in the breathtaking
Snowmass Town Park, located on Brush
Creek Road in Snowmass. Snowmass
Village is one of the most beautiful places in
the United States, and this festival is extremely
popular. It is vital that you purchase your tickets
well in advance, and arrange lodging well in
advance also. Snowmass advises that if you
do not have a ticket, to not show up for the
festival – it will be sold out.

Yoga for Business People: Workplace Implications

Mind-body fitness, which derives from Eastern philosophies and religions, improves physical and emotional well-being, and has implications for workplace performance.

The overall benefits of mind-body exercise are documented in an increasing number of scientific studies. They include everything from reducing cardiac risk factors to enhancing mood.

‘You’re under stress, but you have to be in control all day, and after so many years, what happens is that leads to eating misbehaviors, stress hormone production and cardiac risk factors,. The good news is you can reverse these risk factors non-pharmacologically and develop some habits for a lifetime’ that complement conventional diet and exercise.

The kinder, gentler movements typical of yoga improve flexibility, strength and muscle tone and can be more youth-promoting than the wear-and-tear of daily aerobics, weights and running alone.

Especially with the baby boomer generation getting older, they’re realizing the need for flexibility, the need for good posture, and the desire for the things that are going to help them look and feel young.

Aspen Nightlife – The Crystal Palace

If you like comedy, you should visit The Crystal
Palace. This Aspen landmark was established
in 1957, and has been offering quality dining
with satire comedy ever since. The interior of
the restaurant is done in a Victorian style, with
beautiful stained glass windows, sparkling
chandeliers, and vintage furnishings.

If you take politics very seriously, this may not
be the type of comedy you enjoy. The majority
of the comedy acts and musicals have a
political slant to them, and the staff performs
most of the acts. The Crystal Palace is located
in the heart of downtown Aspen, on Hyman

The food is the best you can find anywhere.
Prime Rib, Rack of Lamb, Fish, Seafood, and
Roast Duckling are served. Don’t make the
mistake of just showing up – call ahead for
reservations. The Crystal Palace is open
Tuesday through Sunday in the evening for
dinner and a show. You should definitely make
it a point to eat here at least once while you
are on your Aspen vacation, as this is a
traditional part of Aspen nightlife for locals and

Universal Studios Tours VIP Studio Pass

Unlike Disneyland, reservations cannot be made for
any of the attractions within Universal Studios.
However, you can get a VIP Studio Pass, which
will allow you to skip many of the lines, and will
even provide you with a personal tour of the back lot.

The cost of the VIP Studio Pass is quite affordable
– under $300 for two people, and it entitles you to
many special perks….you get to see everything,
including many things that are not part of the
standard Universal Studios Tour, although the VIP
tour actually starts with the standard Universal
Studios Tour – then it just gets better.

If you are in possession of a VIP pass, you will be
allowed to get off the tram and wonder around the
movie sets. You will be allowed to visit the props
department as well, which is great fun. You will also
be entitled to prime seating at all of the shows, and
have the opportunity to meet the cast members
after the shows.

If you will be going on a Universal Studios Tour and
visiting the theme park, the VIP Studios Pass is
definitely the way to go!

Group legal plans

Group legal plans in the workplace have experienced rapid growth recently
because of their usefulness to both employer and employee alike.

For the employee, a group legal plan is a cheap way to get legal coverage
in much the same way as other traditional benefits. For as little as $20
per month deducted from payroll, an employee is put in touch with an
attorney who can draft his will, buy or refinance a home, adopt a child
and plan an estate. Unlimited legal advice is offered at no cost to the

The benefits for the employer include increased efficiency and
productivity from their workforce, and reduced administration costs to
handle personal matters. Another very attractive benefit is the very low
cost involved in researching and implementing a group legal plan. In fact,
such plans cost employers very little in terms of time and investment.
Group plans are structured on a voluntary basis, paid for through payroll
deductions from the workforce. Additionally, the carrier handles all the
claims, redundant paperwork and customer service related to the plan.

Cheesecake A Most Wonderful Desert

Cheesecake can be made almost anytime and then frozen or even kept in your refrigerator for a few days and then served at your party.
Some cheesecakes are made to be sweet and then some are made to be not so sweet depending on your taste and the type and grade of the cheese that you are using.
The best way to serve a cheesecake is at room temperature, this way you can enjoy the full flavor of the cake.

Three No-Nos in Thailand

Do NOT in anyway shape or form say or do ANYTHING that would be considered as being injurious to the dignity of the royal family. This includes but is not limited to saying anything bad about the king, stepping on or defacing Thai money or anything with the image of the King on it.

The Thais love their King. Remember this and act accordingly.

Don’t raise your voice or show anger. This has to do with face and if you cannot control yourself you will look like the ignorant tourist you really are.

Don’t hurt anyone especially a Thai. You will be held responsible and you really do not want to have to deal with the Thai police. It will cost YOU.

DO Smile A LOT and enjoy your trip.

Anyone else have suggestions in this vein, please feel free to add comments. They are most welcome.

Maritime Museum San Diego

Since 1948, the Maritime Museum located in San Diego
has served the city in many big ways. The museum here
is dedicated to collecting and preserving the rich
maritime heritage and historic values of the city –
then presenting it to the public.

The biggest attraction to the museum is the historic
ships. Here, you’ll find five great examples of
maritime vessels – Berkeley, Californian, Medea,
Pilot, and the Star of India.

All across the museum you can find many examples of
Naval technology and ships of the past. The guides
at the Maritime Museum are very friendly and helpful,
willing to answer any question that you may have.

Nearby to the museum, you have several attractions
and things to see. With the museum being in the
downtown area of San Diego, it’s very close to some
of the other things that San Diego is so very well
known for.

If you happen to be on vacation in San Diego, make
sure you visit the Maritime Museum. Kids love to
see the ships on display, as well as the USS Midway
Aircraft Carrier Museum, which is a short walk from
the Maritime Museum.

Leasing and your credit score.

Your credit score is part of the leasing decision. When you apply for a
lease, your lease company will typically look at your credit score to
decide whether you to approve the application.

The leasing contract stipulates that you make regular, monthly payments
over your lease term. The credit score you lease company requests
identifies how likely you are to make such payments. It is simply a number
calculated according to a model that takes into account your payment
history, any amounts you owe and credit currently in use.

It is very important to keep a good credit-score, usually above 700, to
qualify for a lease or any other lending decision. Start by ordering your
credit report from Fair Isaac Corp, the company that creates your credit
score. If erroneous data is held about you, then contact the creditor
responsible and get such information corrected.
Your payment history is the single most important factor in determining
your credit score, so get in the habit of paying everything you owe on time
and keep the balances low in your credit cards.

Universal Studios Tours – It’s Not For Everyone

Unlike Disneyland, Universal Studio Tours are not for
everyone. While there is plenty to do and see, the
attractions are not appropriate for all ages. This
should be strongly considered if you are planning a
family vacation that includes Universal Studios.

There are no attractions that are suitable for babies
or toddlers at Universal Studios. Most babies and
toddlers will not be interested in the Universal
Studios Tour. Furthermore, getting a stroller around
the upper and lower lots is almost impossible.
Universal Studios is a great place to have some fun
– unless you are a baby, a toddler, or a parent of a
baby or toddler.

If you will be taking your vacation with a toddler or a
baby, you may be better off saving the Universal
Studios Tour for another vacation – a few years down
the road. There is no charge for admission for babies
and toddlers at Universal Studios, but there usually
isn’t if the person cannot enjoy the attractions at the
park! Remember – the baby or toddler isn’t the only
one who won’t be having any fun.

Universal Studios Tours – Attractions to See

If you are planning a trip to Universal Studios, there
are many attractions to keep you occupied,
including the Universal Studios Tour, which takes
about one hour. However, there are some attractions
that absolutely must not be missed!

All of the rides have a movie theme, and if you’ve
seen the movies, this makes the rides more
enjoyable. Start with Backdraft. This isn’t actually a
ride, but it is a fire show that features lots of stunts
and interaction. Other shows that must not be
missed include Animal Planet Live, WaterWorld, and
Fear Factor Live. With Fear Factor Live, make sure
that you know what you are getting into before you
agree to participate!

Terminator 2: 3D is the same as the movie
Terminator 2 – but it is in 3D, which you probably
have not yet seen. The Mummy Returns: Chamber
of Doom is like a haunted house that you walk
through, which is full of thrills. The Studio Tour will
have you on the set of Jaws and Psycho, in a
western town, on a New York street, and
experiencing an earthquake with King Kong.

Personal Comfort at Disneyland

There is no better way to ruin your Disneyland
vacation than trying to walk around with blisters on
your feet! It is vitally important that you wear
comfortable shoes that are already broken in. You
will be doing more walking than you normally would
when you visit Disneyland.

It is also important that you bring a change of
clothing. You can rent a locker at Disneyland to
store your extra clothes. You can rub your thighs
raw if you ride water rides in denim shorts, then try
to walk around while you dry out! Enjoy the water
rides – but then go change into dry clothing! Bring
extra shoes as well. Walking around in wet shoes
is not only uncomfortable; it can also contribute to

More than blisters can cause discomfort. Some
people simply are not used to being on their feet all
day. If your feet are tired and sore at the end of the
day, soak them in cool water with Epsom salt. This
will offer more relief than soaking them in hot or
warm water. After a good twenty minute soak, your
feet will feel refreshed and ready for more walking!

How to Avoid Long Lines at Disneyland

One source of frustration for many visitors at
Disneyland is the long lines for the rides. You can
literally spend several hours of the day standing in
line to ride popular attractions. These lines can be
avoided in one of three ways.

Get to the park early. The lines are shorter in the
morning when the park first opens. Instead of
jumping in line for the first ride you see, head for the
rides that you really want to ride the most – the
most popular rides. Another option is to purchase
FastPass tickets for the rides that offer them. Again,
do this early to ensure that you get to ride those rides
earlier in the day.

The third option to avoid long lines at Disneyland is
to ride many of the popular rides later in the evening,
while the majority of people are enjoying the
entertainment. Disneyland has nightly entertainment,
and this is a good time to find shorter lines. Of
course, it will mean that you probably miss the
entertainment, so if you can use one of the other
options for shorter lines at Disneyland, you should
probably do so.

Choosing the Best Ashtray for Cigar Smoking

Is an ashtray just an ashtray? Unlike regular cigarettes, cigars need their own special space to support their girth and ashes. Many cigar aficionados swear by the pleasures of finding the proper place to hold their cigars and ashes.

So what are the characteristics of a good ashtray? First of course, make sure the ashtray you buy is big enough to hold your cigars. Cigars come in varying sizes, so you will want an ashtray that can accommodate the single of your choice. Next, consider your personal style of smoking. Do you produce a lot of ash? Do you let your cigar rest for extended periods of time? These are all important considerations when choosing your ashtray.

Look for ashtrays made of metal, heavy glass, or ceramics. Ideally, you will want the ashtray to be big enough to hold the ashes for two cigars.

Where can you find the best ashtrays for your cigars? Many cigar aficionados swear by antique ashtrays. Search out flea markets and antique stores for good deals. Tobacco shops, mail order catalogues, and Internet shops are also good places to look.

Prepaid and Small Business

Legal advice for small businesses does not have to be expensive. With
pre-paid legal plans, a wide array of legal services designed specifically
to cater for the needs of small businesses is available for a set yearly
fee ranging from $125 to $300.

Although coverage differs across the board, most pre-paid plans offer
unlimited telephone consultation with a lawyer, a valuable service that is
enough to solve many small-business matters. This encourages
“preventive law”: the process whereby you identify legal problems that
affect your business, contact your lawyer and get advice on taking steps to
minimize them.

Basic plans provide coverage for simple contracts and the drafting of
simple legal documents, like a power of attorney or a bill of sale. More
comprehensive plans will deal with more elaborate matters like equipment
lease and accounts-receivable collection work.

If you are a member of a local chamber of commerce, trade or professional
group than you can get a plan at a reduced group rate. Otherwise, buy
directly from a commercial vendor.

Payday Loans No Faxing – Cash For All Urgent Requirements

Holiday Mountain Ski Vacations

Holiday Mountain, located in New York, is a popular
area for skiing. Even though the highest elevation is
only 1300 feet, and the vertical drop is only 400 feet,
this area is a popular place for the younger crowd,
and it is definitely a great place to learn how to ski.

There are eight lifts, including three chair lifts and five
surface lifts. There are 15 trails for beginners,
intermediate skiers, and expert skiers. While skiing
and snowboarding are the main attractions, there is
much more here as well, including bumper cars, an
arcade, and a mechanical bull. There is always
something to do at Holiday Mountain Ski Resort.

The best place to stay when visiting Holiday Mountain
Ski Resort is the Villa Roma Resort Hotel, which is
located in the Sullivan County Catskills. Villa Roma
was named as one of America’s 50 Best Family
Resorts by Better Homes & Garden Magazine, and
with the amazing amount of fun activities, it is easy
to see why. The resort features a rail park for
snowboarders, birthday packages, snow tubing, and
of course skiing.

Exporting Jewelry Wholesale

If you plan to export jewelry wholesale, you may
need to find out if it is legal. First you must
understand that sending just one piece of jewelry to
another country is in fact ‘exporting goods.’ This is
true even if the country is Mexico or Canada! No
matter where it is going, if it is outside of the United
States, or the country that you live in, it is

You can find out if exporting certain pieces of
jewelry is legal by calling the customs agency in
your state, or by calling the United States Customs
Office. Describe the jewelry and as well as the
precious stones it contains, and tell them where it
is being sent. They will be able to tell you if shipping
it is legal, and what problems may be encountered
at customs in the country it is being shipped to.

Take shipping costs into consideration, and make
sure that your customer pays for that! Shipping to
other countries can be quite costly, and if you pay
for that shipping, you probably won’t realize any
profits on the jewelry wholesale that you are
shipping out of the country!

Diamond Brands and What They Mean

Diamonds are one of the few products that
simply cannot be ‘branded.’ Even though
there are different cuts, different grades, and
different values placed on each and every
diamond in existence, no diamond is any
specific brand – just as gold is not a specific

Branding is actually based on who owns the
diamond. For instance, if DeBeers owns the
diamond, it is a DeBeers Diamond – but it is
still just a diamond. If the diamond was cut by
a specific well known cutter, then it might be
branded in that way as well – but it usually
isn’t. It is still branded based on who owns it
at the time. So basically, when it comes down
to it – diamond brands mean absolutely
nothing at all.

Do not allow a jeweler to try to talk you into
paying an exorbitant price on a diamond
because it is a specific brand. This is a bit
of trickery used by unscrupulous jewelers
when they know that they are dealing with
people who don’t know much about
diamonds. Remember that diamonds are
not actually branded – unless mother nature
has her own brand!

Gadgets for your garage

If you spend a lot of your time at home in your garage or if
you want a clean and organized garage you need a few
gadgets. Garage gadgets come in many forms and for different

For example a stop light for parking may come in handy for
someone who has a problem with depth perception or for
someone who comes home late from work and is very tired. If you
have such problems, you need this tool. It is easy to install
and use and it helps you to park the car in the same spot
every time when the motion sensors are triggered.

If you need space on the walls next to the door, you can
mount a garage door opener on the ceiling above the door
to eliminate chains.

Bike storage is ideal in a garage for “hanging” your bike on a
wall so you have easy access to it with the advantage of having
more clear space in the garage.

If you have a lot more items in your garage than you really have
Room for or the walls are full of shelves and cabinets, you
definitely need additional storage devices like an overhead
storage system mounted directly on the ceiling.

How Diamonds Are Mined

We seldom think about how the diamonds
we wear came to us. Natural diamonds, as
opposed to synthetic diamonds or fake
diamonds, are mined from the earth. There
are currently two methods of mining
diamonds: Pipe Mining and Alluvial Mining.

When pipe mining is used, the diamonds
are extracted from the earth through volcanic
pipes. These are not man-made pipes. These
are natural pipes in the ground. Shanks are
put into the ground next to the pipes, and
tunnels are driven into the deepest parts of
the pipe. The diamonds are not sorted out at
the mine. Instead, huge rocks that are full of
diamonds are brought out of the mine and
moved to a screening plant for separation.

The Alluvial mining method is done in
riverbeds and on beaches. Walls are built to
hold back the water and the sand on the bank
or beach is moved with a bulldozer until the
level of earth that diamonds can be found in
is reached. Again, the diamonds are not
sorted here. Instead, the sand that contains
the diamonds is bulldozed into trucks, and
taken to screening plants.

How to Clean Jewelry Wholesale

There are many different brands of jewelry cleaners
on the market today. Depending on how your
jewelry is made, these products may or may not be
safe for your jewelry wholesale! Before using
jewelry cleaner, take a good long look at the jewelry
and try to determine what it is made of.

First, any jewelry that has pieces glued on should
not be soaked in jewelry cleaner. Instead, use a
little Woolite mixed with water, and soak the piece
for just a couple of minutes. Remove the piece from
the mixture and dry it immediately – but gently –
with a soft cloth. Use a soft toothbrush to gently
scrub small crevices.

Avoid soaking pearls! They may come from the
ocean – but water from your tap may damage them.
Simply wipe the pearl with a damp cloth, then use
a polishing cloth to give it back its shine. Never
soak any of your jewelry overnight. It isn’t
necessary, and it may harm the jewelry wholesale.
Again, it is important to know what gems are used
in your jewelry, and how the piece was constructed
before determining how you will clean it.

Balboa Beach In Newport Beach

Being one of the pristine beaches in Newport Beach,
Balboa Beach is found on the Balboa peninsula. The
beach faces the Pacific Ocean, and is actually
just a few blocks from the well known Balboa Fun
Zone and the yacht harbor.

In the summer, the beach is very popular for swimming
lessons. Balboa Beach is also well known for a 920
foot pier that was voted to be the best throughout
Orange County. The beach is also well known for it’s
no entrance fee. Although there is a parking fee,
the free admission more than makes up for it.

Along Balboa Beach you’ll find a bike path and even
places for bonfires. Surfing is also welcomed here,
although it’s banned from 11 AM to 6 PM in the
summer months. Bodyboarding is also great here,
along with swimming. During the summer, there is a
lifeguard on duty during the hours of daylight.

With plenty of sand and warm sun here, Balboa
Beach is one of the superb beaches in the Newport
Beach area. If you visit Newport Beach in the
summer, make sure you drop by Balboa Beach and see
just how good life can be.

Aspen Nightlife – The Club Scene

After a day on the slopes in Aspen, Colorado, you
are probably ready to do some partying. The Aspen
club scene starts hopping shortly before the slopes
close. Many of the clubs have planned events – and
some are just free-for-alls with music and dancing all
night long. No matter what kind of music you are into,
you will find it in Aspen.

Most of the lodges and hotels in Aspen have bars or
clubs. Some have multiple bars, clubs, or lounges –
so start your search for Aspen nighttime
entertainment at your lodge or hotel. You can
usually find a friendly game of pool in almost any bar
before the music and dancing begin.

The easiest way to find the type of music and dancing
that is most enjoyable to you is to pick up a copy of
Aspen Magazine’s Traveler’s Guide. This guide will
provide you with a list of Aspen hotspots, and let you
know what you can expect at each club or bar. If you
will be drinking, make sure that you don’t drive your
car. Walk or take advantage of the public transportation
or taxi services in the Aspen area.

Invoicing with Autoresponders

If you have recurring invoices that you send out, you
can easily automate this process with
autoresponders. Many business
owners find that they spend a good portion the day
sending out invoices, or trying to collect on unpaid
invoices! This can easily eat into the time that you
could be spending generating new business.

If the amounts invoiced are the same each month,
and due on the same day each week or month, you
can easily automate the invoicing process with the
use of an autoresponder. Many shopping carts that
have autoresponders built in work well for this.
Others may take a little time to set up, but in the
end, they will save a great deal of time overall.

Get extra usage out of the automated invoicing
process by adding small messages to the invoices
that alert these clients to new products or services
that you offer. Think about your phone bill – doesn’t
your phone company send out additional sales
material with each bill? There is no reason you
shouldn’t use this same marketing technique with
your autoresponder invoices!

Get More Out of Your Disneyland Vacation With

You don’t want to spend your entire Disneyland
Vacation standing in long lines. This can be avoided
by using Disneyland FastPass. FastPass can be
obtained from machines located near the rides that
accept FastPass. This doesn’t mean that you get to
immediately move to the front of the line. It is more
like scheduling an appointment for the ride later in
the day – at which time you actually will move to
the front of the line. In the meantime, you are free
to go enjoy other sites and rides around the park.

When you obtain a FastPass ticket, you will be
given a one hour time in which to enjoy the ride. For
instance, your FastPass ticket may say 11am to
12pm. This means that you can show up and move
to the front of the line between the hours of 11am and
12pm. You must have your Disneyland ticket in order
to obtain a FastPass ticket.

At Disneyland, FastPasses are available for Indiana
Jones, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain
Railroad, Roger Rabbits Cartoon Spin, Autopia,
Space Mountain, and Buzz Lightyear.

Cream Cheese Mincemeat Pie

• bottom pie crust for a 9 or 10 inch pie plate
• 3 cups mincemeat
• 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Make the pie crust and line the pie plate with the crust (I know this seems obvious, but one time when I happened to listen to Oprah — I have listened to the show about 3 times in my life — there was a chef who was talking about cooking something in one of those plastic cooking bags. “When you take it out of the oven, cut open the bag and throw it away,” Oprah said. “You have to say that because there are people out there who will eat the bag if you don’t tell them to throw it away.”)
Put the mincemeat on top of the pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes.
Using an electric mixer, whip the softened cream cheese, sugar, the egg and the lemon juice until smooth. Pour on top of the mincemeat and bake for another 25 to 30 minutes or until set.

What can we do if our child is telling lies

Must we worry when we realize that our child is telling lies? How can we cure our child from this unpleasant habit? Specialists say that until the age of 6 or 7 we should not be concerned about the lies children tell. They are not lying, they are only creating scripts and stories they need at this age. Between the age of 3 and 5 children live in a world of fairytales and by using their imagination they discover that anything is possible. Their imagination helps the process of thinking in developing faster…(read the full article at the link below)
