Some people prefer reading books more than listening. I listened to books only once when I tried to learn Spanish. It’s convenient really. You don’t need to take a book with you and ruin your eyesight. Recently when I was looking for information about religion and spirituality for my grandma I have found so many audio books that now when I am driving a car I listen to Dean Koontz. For me it’s the optimal variant as usually I have no time to read but like reading.

Why do we need this time? To think, to dream, to plan, to love…We need this time just to spare it for ourselves whether we walk, keep house, write a letter, or just sit in a comfortable armchair. Nobody can break our thoughts and interrupt our privacy. Therefore spending some time alone is needed.

When I was looking for a workout program for my body, soul and health, I chose yoga among the variety. Someone can think that yoga is difficult physically and avoid such kind of classes but it can be as gentle or as energetic as you want. It is inoffensive I believe. If you didn’t go in for sport, like me, yoga is for you.
It has many benefits as it can improve stamina and flexibility, stretches your muscles, strengthens cardiovascular system and so on. The main goals of yoga are to train your body, mind and breath. After my first practice I could say that yoga also reduces stress and helps to sleep better.

Nowadays there are so many sports classes and schoolhouses for small kids so whether you have a boy or a girl, you will surely find something suitable for your child. For me it was rather difficult to determine which one will be the ‘best of the best’ for my kid. Certainly, nobody can know for sure what kind of sport his/her child will like most and will be a success. But when your kid is small, only you can decide and try together with the child this or that activity. Looking through a great variety of offers, I have chosen swimming and figure skating as I believe such kind of sport will make my daughter healthier and her figure slim. We had only three figure skating lessons but I saw how she enjoyed it. There is no more pleasant thing than watching your child who is trying to skate and be a success and how satisfied she is.

Recently, I applied for a card that offered instant credit approval and I got it!!! Of course, I didn’t get a card itself immediately but still I got the answer and can wait for my card planning purchases.

Yesterday I went to make a "chocolate pack" for my body. Oh, it was wonderful! When I decided to make such a treatment, some of my friends told me that it will be too hot but it wasn't, really. It was only a pleasure. Moreover, after the procedure I smelled like a chocolate and my skin was amazingly silky and sleek.

There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time. ~ Robert Browning
Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay. ~ Robert Browning

Recently I decided to experiment. I bought a seed of mimosa pudica in order to grow it at home. I have never done it before (Lol), never grown any plant from a seed myself at home. So, I expected good results and I got them. Hurray!!!
It is beautiful and very ticklish when I touch its leaves they droop reopening within several minutes. Not for nothing it is called Shy . My daughter likes this flower as a favorite toy because of its effect: droops, re-opens, droops, re-opens...

Do you watch Olympic Games? I enjoy watching this strong competition but prefer only friendly kinds of sport. I mean I don't like boxing or weightlifting or anything like that as I simply don't understand them as a kind of sport and don't enjoy seeing how people hurt each other or overstrain him/herself. But still Olympic Games are always thrilling and interesting especially if our sportsmen win. I wish them good luck!

One of my friends-business owners is always in the know of last business news and looking at him I incessantly admire how savvy, sage and restrained he is in order to be a success. But it’s well known that it is very difficult to run a business.
There are cards for business issued to help entrepreneurs run their business easier and control their business expenses more efficiently. Such credit offers come with high credit limits, attractive rates and fees, separate accounts for the company's expenses and rewards for making necessary business purchases. It’s alluring but yet again only savvy and sage business card holder can be a success!

What does this Big Word mean to you?
When you want to do everything together, desire to do anything for that person, share your thoughts and plans, go to the end of the earth together, have mutual understanding - this is my point of view.

Have you ever bought a lottery ticket and won? I believe in luck and always check lottery results but unfortunately, I have never won. Why do some people always win, others only dream of winning? Luck!!! I think lucky people are lucky in everything.

Some people prefer to live in big cities, others somewhere in province. Province is a silent region of country with fresh air and green grass where the tempo of life isn't fast. Big city is noisy with crowded streets and always fussy people but has many places of interest, parks of amusement and stores. If I was asked where I wanted to live, I would hesitate in my choice. Both of them are suitable for me.

One famous old proverb says: One who has many friends never needs a full purse. I always thought that I had many friends and was very satisfied with that. But when I thought how many of them were really faithful, the number was not that great. What are the criteria of being faithful? First and foremost, trust. If you don’t trust and can’t share your innermost secrets with him or her, this or that person will never become your friend.
Faithful friend will always help you if you are in need of. And finally, for me, faithful friend is a loyal friend. My friends have these weighty criteria. Do yours have them?

Before living together you can look at your partner and the habits and then decide whether he or she is a real person to live with. For instance, spending habits. If your boyfriend spends much doing shopping or just spending his time with friends, most probably the budget of your family built by your joint efforts won’t be stable. They say that money is the main reason for quarrels.

Smoking is a harmful habit. I hate even smell when someone is smoking nearby. Smoking bans especially in restaurants can be really effective, a Massachusetts study suggests. Living in towns with strict bans teens less likely become bad smokers than youths in places with weak bans or without them at all. Moreover, age also plays the role. Bans against smoking are more effective for younger teens. Good news is that 23 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico require restaurants, bars and many other public places, to be smoke free. The more measures will be taken, the healthier and more prosperous our society will be.

Now he has a girlfriend and is happy with their relationship.
There are quite a number of such people, and they are suffering from misunderstanding, from lack of money (to be operated), from many factors in the society which don't let them be the ones they want to be.

I didn't go for work, I was alone at home and that was unusual and rather cool. I couldn't remember the time when I can just sit reading a mag, or sleep, or go for a walk without any reasons. Now I am so fresh and energetic after this break. Don't forget to relax and have FREE time without any reasons. It really works.

To know for sure that everything with your report is ok before applying for any card, you need to order your credit report and score. Once a year you can do it for free. And of course, it is only in your interest to check your credit score and report at least before you apply for a new credit card or a loan.

As for disadvantages, credit cards lead us into temptation to buy everything we like. I believe this is the main disadvantage that usually results in damaged credit history and huge debts. Moreover, credit cards can be easily lost or stolen. Unfortunately, modern thieves are very tricky and use various methods to steal our personal information and use it pro domo sua. So, be prudent!
No doubt, all these disadvantages depend only on us. Therefore we need to be more restrained using our credit cards for making purchases and be more careful to avoid theft. Then there will be only advantages… You may find more detailed information in the article Credit Card Disadvantages.

I watched “I Am Legend” these weekends. It was very interesting tragic blockbuster about one military scientist who stayed alive and continued to live alone trying to survive. It was a hopeless dramatic story with a sad end (the hero died). There were terrifying moments when I even closed my eyes (I am a “coward”) in order not to see this horror. New York was awfully overgrown with grass. Monsters were also terrible. Just imagine, you are a man, the only man on earth, and there are many monsters around. Yikes… All in all, this action-thriller left a positive impression for me and my friends.

Lawrence, a friend of mine, was in the same situation suffering from his damaged credit. But he opened a savings account at the bank and put $300 as a security deposit. And that’s all. Secured credit card was in his hands.
It is similar to unsecured card, but requires making a deposit. And denials are ruled out.

Holiday season is over. Summarizing this time I can say that two of my wishes made on Christmas have already come true. I am so happy! I met all the nearest of mine and got too many unexpected gifts. I spent all my free time with my husband and child. We were skating, skiing, playing bowling…and so on and so forth. It was the happiest holiday season in my life!

1. Make sure whether your card is acceptable at that particular place or not. If yes…
2. Check the expiration date of your credit card and its limit.
3. Inform your bank that you are going to travel. If you use your plastic, say, in Spain, the bank may suppose that your card is used by another person and take necessary measures to protect your account.
4. Keep the number of your credit account in a reliable place, e.g. safe, while you are away.
5. Going shopping, hide your plastics thoroughly to avoid theft that happens not only in the US.
