Having A Dog in An Apartment Building

It has been known that one of the special joys you can have in your life is to have a pet or pets.  Living in an apartment building can be a little hard for someone who owns a dog, but when we had a dog, we adapted our daily lives in order to make it work.  Sadly, since we don’t have any relatives here. It became apparent that we have to let him go because we have to go on long vacations and we needed to move to a new apartment which most of them don’t allow pets. Back then, we would wake up at 5am to take our dog for a morning walk and then go to work.  Later, when we came home, he was ready to go again, and then he was good until the next morning.  I don’t know if that’s normal, but our dog only needed to go potty twice per day, and he worked out great for an apartment dweller. 

You’ve probably seen your friends and neighbors walking their dogs in a park that welcomes dogs, but you might wonder how everyone disposes of the dog waste.  It’s simple, the parks that welcome dogs usually have pet waste stations for the dog owners to dispose of the waste from their pet.  That keeps the park clean and the city or county can then dump the waste.  But what will your little dog do while you take them to the park?  Some parks have dog exercise equipment for the canine pets to enjoy so the dogs will stay in good physical condition and live long happy lives.

Different types of gift baskets and their uses

Anyone who has ever had the task of looking for a specific gift can tell you that this is no easy feat. In fact, depending on the person that you are purchasing the gift for, it can be one of the hardest things that you can do for someone else. There is of course, also the frustration that many people feel when they go shopping, which is the frustration of having to navigate the stores, and try to find the exact right item that you are looking for, and then hope that the person that you are purchasing the item for will ultimately like it.

One way that you can avoid all of the hustle and bustle of the stores, and having to weave through crowds is by choosing a very different gifting idea than the kinds that you may have been used to in the past. One of the best pieces of gifting advice is to go with something like gift baskets. These kinds of gifts are great because there are an infinite number of things that you can do with them and there are also as many different variations of these kinds of gifts as you can come up with.

There are many different occasions which would call for gifts to be given. There are the popular holidays but there are also the occasions that most of us do not tend to think of when it comes to giving gifts. Occasions like office holiday parties housewarmings and other such occasions that may not automatically call for gifts at first glance but they are ultimately the kinds of occasions that call for you to bring something. These occasions are the ones that many of us are left stumped by and unsure of what to do.

For these kinds of occasions gift baskets are perfect because you can not only create them yourself but you can also make them as personal or impersonal as you want them to be. For occasions like office parties or white elephant gift exchanges it is better for the gifts to remain as impersonal as possible because you never know who is going to wind up with it in the end. Because the gifts are exchanged from person to person it is also a good idea for you to keep the gifts as gender neutral as possible as well.

No matter what the age or gender of the person is it is always nice to get gifts no matter what the occasion. There are many different ways that you can put gifts together and there are also many experts that would be glad to help you with the gift selection process as well. There are also a multitude of do it yourself guides as well as website tutorials and magazine articles that can assist you with this process as well no matter what type of gift it is that you are going to be giving. Something else that you may want to consider also is the old saying that it is the thought that counts.

Clipix review: Clip it Your Way

Clipix is a new program that you can use to “clip” things that you found online. You will just have to place a “clip” button on your toolbar. It is pretty easy to do it because you just have to drag it from their website.  Registration is fairly easy too, you’ll just have to use an email and password.
Once you use clipix, you’ll find that you can clip items online so you don’t have to search for it again. When you see something interesting online and you don’t have the time at the moment, clip it and it will be there at one of your boards. There are boards that are already made and you can also make new ones.  
What do you think you’ll use the clipix for? I am using it to store craft ideas that I want to do with my daughter one of these days. I also store some news articles so I can read them later. Other boards that I made are “wanted to buy” and “recipes to try”. We’re planning on a vacation so I think I will also use Clipix for sights to see.
I think you will like Clipix too. You can also use it on your Iphone and you can share your clips with Facebook and Twitter.

Guest post of the week by Brittany Booker

Having Clear Internet and TV bundled together makes my unorganized life a little bit easier to manage. I am really bad about paying bills and keeping everything together. I am not good about organization and never have been. When I was in grade school, I was always the kid who was forgetting her homework at home ( even though I had already done it), loosing things, and the kid with the messiest desk. I also had a really messy room and couldn’t keep up with anything. Now, into adulthood, it hasn’t gotten much better, but I have to be more responsible about keeping everything together. I learned in college that organization and time management was key to success. It took a while to get there, but I finally got there. Now, any little thing that I can do to help me be more organized ( i.e. pay two bills in one) helps me out. Being organized I have to work really hard at, as being organized is really difficult for me, but when I get there, I am really happy and get my work done much better!
