Patriotic Guided Tours of our US Capital

| Articles | June 10, 2008

It’s exciting to know that, on a nearly year-round basis, you can take your family on a guided tour of Washington, DC, our

US Capital and a fascinating city to visit. This is a good city for families to visit as it teaches children how our

government works and there are dozens of interesting things to see and do.

Guided tours of Washington DC can be walking tours, driving tours or a combination of both. In many cases, because traffic

can be difficult around the capital, it pays to spend most of your time on a guided walking tour. As you may know, most

aspects of central Washington DC are centered on a large rectangular “mall” with places to visit throughout. Pick a spot

and follow through from there.

Perhaps you’ll want to start out at our nation’s capital building. It’s a busy place where you may be able to view the

places where the Senate and the House of Representatives meet and make our laws. Most guided tours will show you specific

points of interest, including interesting architecture, paintings and statues.

The Smithsonian Institute lies in several buildings on either side of the capital building. On guided tours of these areas,

you may wish to pick the buildings and areas you think you and your family will like the most. Perhaps you will choose the

Air and Space Museum. You’ll see old rockets, space suits, famous airplanes and even a planetarium show. Kids love this

museum and adults get a chance to be kids for a change.

The Holocaust Museum is tucked away along the south side of the mall and it’s not as easy to see; however, many guided tours of the area will show you the way. This museum is a must-see event that will teach you and your children a great deal about what so many people suffered through.

As you walk along the mall, the large obelisk, the Washington Monument looms as the center point in the mall. Guided tours

of Washington DC often stop here. To the South, you’ll see the Jefferson Memorial and, to the North, you’ll see the White

House. While the lines may be long, you can often get in to see a guided tour of the inside of the White House.

Further down on the mall are the Vietnam Memorial Wall, a striking design that moves nearly every one who sees it. Guided

tours of the area will also take you to the newer memorial to World War II veterans. If you come at the right time of the

year, usually in early to mid-spring, you can see the cherry blossoms in full bloom along both sides of a rectangular,

shallow reflecting pool. In wintertime, however, the pool is drained.

None of the guided tours of Washington DC will let you miss the Lincoln Memorial with its famous statue of the seated

Abraham Lincoln. From the top of its steps, you can see the entire mall in all its glory.

If you’re on one of the guided tours of Washington DC that has a driving component, they’ll probably take you to see

Arlington Cemetery, where many famous people have been buried. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, also called the Tomb of

the Unknowns. As a way to finish the trip, drive by the massive Pentagon to see how huge it is how many people work there.

Stamp out Fleas with Organic Pest Control

| Articles | June 8, 2008

What pet owner hasn’t worried once or twice that their beloved pet had developed fleas? Worse yet, how many have worried

that the fleas had spread to other parts of the house? Luckily, there are numerous organic flea control remedies that

can both keep fleas from infesting your home and can get rid of them once a pet has been infested.

Those with pets need to know that for every flea they find on their pet, there can be more than thirty more fleas somewhere

in that pet’s environment. Your pet can get fleas from being outdoors or can get fleas through contact with a visitor’s pet.

This is why its important to learn all about the organic flea repellent remedies available that will be both safe and

effective on your pet.

Make sure you give your pet a bath and comb your pet on a regular basis. Pets that already have fleas should be combed with

a comb that’s been dipped in a glass of soapy water. Organic repellents and deterrents include the use of citrus products.

For example, you can pour a cup of boiling water over an entire sliced lemon, including the skin. Score the skin to release

more citrus oil. Let the mixture soak and sponge it on the animal. Believe it or not, it will kill fleas immediately.

Another organic pest control remedy involves using Brewer’s yeast and garlic, or apple cider vinegar in small amounts to the

pet’s food. This will repel fleas quite nicely. Cats, however, shouldn’t consume garlic.

Topical organic remedies include cedar-based shampoo, cedar oil and sleeping mats that contain cedar chips. Fleas do not

like cedar of any kind and will be repelled from areas where you put it. Other insects are repelled by organic cedar

products as well.

In the horrible event that you find you’ve got fleas in your carpeting, you should first vacuum the entire carpet, paying

special attention to low traffic areas. Seal the vacuum bag and get it out of thereAnother organic method for getting rid

of fleas is to obtain a wide, shallow pan, like a cake pan, and fill it half-full with soapy water. Place the pan on the

floor and shine a light over the area. The fleas will jump up to the heat of the lamp and will land in the water and,

because the water is soapy, the fleas will simply drown. Do this for a few nights and it will make a big difference.

If you’re desperate for a long-lasting organic and safe method of flea control in a room, purchase a nontoxic flea trap.

Basically, you place a sticky pad under a grid on the plastic device and plug it into a regular light socket. The light

and heat from the device attracts fleas on a permanent basis from as far away as 25 feet. The fleas jump up, fall through

the grid and stick onto the sticky pad. The sticky pad is easily replaceable when it is used up.

Finally, the best organic flea control for outdoor use involves buying flea control nematodes (worms) that are 100% safe

and can be spread throughout the lawn and garden. These organic little creatures kill the flea larvae and pupae so that

the fleas don’t reach adulthood. That way, your pets won’t be bringing in fleas from your yard.

Flea control doesn’t have to be complicated nor does it have to involve the use of toxic chemicals.

Your pets don’t deserve the toxicity and neither do you.

Amsterdam Tour

When we talk about Amsterdam, Netherlands, it is very hard not to imagine misty cafes and scantily clothed women moving provocatively in windows with red lights. Many of the travelers from across the world return to this ultimate city of “sin” because of these sights alone. Most of them are busting with tales of the unexpected and if you get chances to visit the place, I’m sure that you will also create your own tales to tell.

Well, Amsterdam is not just about sex and drugs; it has all the great things that Mother Earth has to offer. The Netherlands has in fact that most amount of great museums per square foot than anywhere else in the world. If you take a tram ride 10 minutes from the heart of the city, you can overwhelm yourself with those narrow streets occupied with nothing else other than the cyclist and a car every now and then. The city is in fact so quite, but interesting.

Things to See in Amsterdam

The greatly planned city of Amsterdam is one of the few cities in the world where the people, the streets and the atmosphere are an attraction in themselves. It is in fact well-known throughout the world as the sole city where marijuana and hashish are sold legally. And, the worldly known Red Light District is just as much an attraction as a favorite hub for young men full of testosterone to go at night.

But as mentioned earlier, there is far much more to the city than drugs and prostitutes or sex. The city has long been considered as the “Venice of the North” because it was built on a cobweb of canals. You can greatly see most of the city from a canal boat, and from there you’ll surely appreciate the unique architecture that Amsterdam has long been proud to offer.

Furthermore, Amsterdam is heaving with a culture. It has a lot of great museums and libraries. Of all the interesting museums in the city of Amsterdam, the Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank Museum and Van Gogh Museums are names not to be missed.

Where to Eat

When you stroll around in the city of Amsterdam, you’ll surely find a high volume of restaurants. As commonly noted, you can see sandwich boards in front of the many restaurants advertising their daily specials and from a minute walk down the Damrak, the street facing Central Station, there are some neon lights saying “pizza”.

If you delver further into the city, you can find the Damstraat, the street on Dam Square, also peppered with eateries. Further down again towards Leidseplen, the Leidsekruisstraat and Leidsetraat have their good share of restaurants too. It is necessary to note however that the streets mentioned earlier are located in some of the city’s most touristy areas. So, if you wish to steer clear of such commercial centers, you have the chance to visit the Jordaan as some of the city’s coolest restaurants are found there.

In case you prefer to eat out in a restaurant beyond your budget during your tour, there are also some fast food outlets all over Amsterdam where you can get pizzas, chips or kebabs. However, just be careful when asking for mayonnaise on your French fries for they will be completely drowned.

7 Co-sleeping

| Articles | June 7, 2008

While western culture discourages it, studies have shown that co-sleeping with a breastfeeding infant promotes bonding, regulates the mother and baby’s sleep patterns, plays a role in helping the mother to become more responsive to her baby’s cues, and gives both the mother and baby needed rest. The co-sleeping environment also assists mothers in the continuation of breastfeeding on demand, an important step in maintaining the mother’s milk supply.

There are many ways of co-sleeping. Some mothers keep their babies in bed with them all the time. Other mothers set up the crib or bassinet in the mother’s room; their babies are brought to the mother’s bed when they wake. Other mothers sleep with their babies on a mattress in the baby’s room.

This is a personal decision for every mother. If you decide to co-sleep with your infant, there are some guidelines for doing it effectively and safely.

Parents should not sleep with their babies if they are smokers or have ingested alcohol or drugs. Do not co-sleep if you drink alcohol or medications that make you sleepy, take drugs, or smoke. Co-sleep only on beds, not on couches or recliners. Bedding should be tight fitting to the mattress and the mattress should be tight fitting to the headboard of the bed. There should not be any loose pillows or soft blankets near the baby’s face. There should not be any space between the bed and adjoining wall where the baby could roll and become trapped. And of course, the baby should not be placed on its stomach.

There are as many options as there are parents and babies. As babies grow and changes their sleep patterns, families often respond by changing sleeping spaces. The only right choice is what works to give the whole family as much rest as possible.

7 – Vegetarian compared to raw

| Articles | June 6, 2008

Is there a difference between vegetarian and raw food diets? A raw foodist is a vegetarian, but one who generally is not going to cook his vegetables or fruits. A vegetarian is someone who simply doesn’t eat meat, fish or poultry, but only consumes vegetables, pasta, and rice. A vegetarian might eat meatless spaghetti sauce or order onion rings in a restaurant. (Not the healthiest choice, but sometimes it’s hard to find something to eat in a restaurant if you’re vegetarian – even harder if you’re a raw foodist.)

There are different categories of vegetarians, like vegans, or fruitarians, and raw foodist is a category of vegetarianism. We haven’t seen anything about sushi being considered a raw food, but it is. Raw food, though, generally means eating raw, uncooked fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, seaweeds, etc.

But to be a raw food purist means raw broccoli, not steamed. To a vegetarian, someone committed to not eat meat or fish or animal products, steamed vegetables are just as good, although everyone would agree that steaming can take out nutrients from foods, rendering them less nutritious. A vegetarian might consume dairy or egg products; however a vegan will not consume any animal products at all. And a raw foodist is a vegan who consumes only uncooked, unprocessed raw foods.

Proponents of the raw diet believe that enzymes are the life force of a food and that every food contains its own perfect mix. These enzymes help us digest foods completely, without relying on our body to produce its own cocktail of digestive enzymes.

It is also thought that the cooking process destroys vitamins and minerals and that cooked foods not only take longer to digest, but they also allow partially digested fats, proteins and carbohydrates to clog up our gut and arteries.

Followers of a raw diet cite numerous health benefits, including:

* increased energy levels

* improved appearance of skin

* improved digestion

* weight loss

* reduced risk of heart disease

What Can You Do With Those Artifacts in Your Home?

| Articles | June 5, 2008

You have finally had it with the junk in your home. You conduct a thorough cleaning of the whole house and come up with a

ton of stuff that you would like to get rid of and save your house from becoming a museum of artifacts and ancient furniture

and knickknacks.

But hold on just a moment. As it turns out, you may be sitting on a gold mine so it will be to your benefit to search through

the selection of junk and find the treasures you can sell. Once you find the treasures, where should you sell them? eBay is

always a great choice to sell unwanted items because people from all over the world will have a chance to take a look at

the items and buy them if they are interested. There is always a buyer for everything.

That broken lamp? Could be worth a lot to a collector. Those old records? Some music junkie in Europe would love to add

them to his collection. You may hate your stuff, but other people might not and why not try to make a little bit of money

from getting rid of the artifacts in your home. You just need to set up an eBay account and follow the instructions.

Within a few minutes, you will be selling your artifacts online and will have buyers for them within hours or days.

Then, the most difficult thing after that will be collecting the money and keeping a straight face as you travel to the

post office to send off the artifacts to their new owners.

What if you do not want to sell things on eBay? You could hold a garage sale and let others come by and sift through your

artifacts and rejected items while you sit back with a nice glass of lemonade. Or, you could choose to not sell your

artifacts at all, and instead donate them to a second-hand store to benefit their charities. You will not only be helping

others, but you will also be able to mark the costs off on your taxes. Not a bad way to get rid of old junk you do not want

anymore.

Any of these ways would be fantastic choices to getting rid of the artifacts that have cluttered your home for years. Just

realize though that you will have to do this again at a later time and the stuff you and your family covet today will turn

into artifacts in just a few years. Styles and tastes change, however, you do not have to live with the artifacts of the

past forever. Simply purge the stuff you do not need anymore and enjoy your newly empty space-at least until you find a way

to put more junk into it.

And do not try to kid yourself, you will find more junk to fill your home. It is human nature. See, what are you doing

right now? Yes, that is right. You are thinking about going shopping. The cycle continues.

Exploring Nostalgic Guided Tours of Germany

| Articles | June 4, 2008

There are numerous guided tours available for singles, couples or families that will take you through the most quaint and

nostalgic parts of Germany. You can choose a trip that covers the northern part of the country, the southern part of the

country or take a sampling of both if you don’t mind spending a few hours on an air-conditioned tour bus. The best times

to see Germany are from March through July and in the autumn. Many places are closed in August so that may not be the best

time for a tour.

A good example of one of the guided tours of Germany that give you a sampling of the entire country would begin in Frankfurt,

Germany, where they have a large airport. You can visit the Old Town area that make you feel like you’ve gone back in time

to several hundred years ago. The architecture is quaint and well preserved.

Many guided tours of Germany can take you to Cologne, called Kln in German. Cologne is the fourth largest city in Germany

and lies along the Rhine River. One of the sites you wouldn’t want to miss is the beautiful Cologne Cathedral, which is

especially striking at night.

For a special treat, a few guided tours of Germany take you on a day-long river boat ride down the famous Rhine River with

stops at Bonn or at several of the smaller towns along the river, ending in Koblenz. Have your camera ready as the scenery

is thrilling and you’ll see numerous castle ruins high along the banks as the boat travels down the calm and lovely river.

You’ll likely spend some time on one or more of the towns along the Danube River, which originated in the Black Forest and

flows mainly east. In German, the Danube River is called the Donau River. Along the Main River, many guided tours of

Germany will take you to Wrzburg, where you can see the famous Fortress Marienberg. a castle on a hill across the Old Main

Bridge from the city or the lovely 18th Century Wrzburg Residenz.

If you like castles, take one of the guided tours where the bus driver takes you on a stop at the magnificent Neuschwanstein

Castle, built as a shrine to Richard Wagner by Ludwig II, the craziest King of Bavaria that ever lived. He also built two

other castles nearby worth looking at. The Castle Linderhof is beautifully maintained inside and out, and contains a grotto

that was also based on the works of Richard Wagner. The Castle Herrenscheimsee is sixty kilometers south of Munich. Any

one of these castles is picture perfect and all of them are delightful stops on your tour.

Speaking of Munich, not one guided tour of Munich would be complete without a stop in this fantastic Bavarian city, famous

for its beer, its music and for Oktoberfest. Visitors can shop inside the city and can take a rest at Munich’s most famous

beer establishment, the Hofbrauhaus. Having seats for nearly a thousand people on several levels, woman rush by in

traditional Bavarian dress with mugs of beer big enough to satisfy the thirstiest of travelers. It’s just one of those

places that you need to say you’ve “been there”.

There are hundreds of different places that guided tours of Germany can take you. The example above is just one of the

wonderful tours and places this quaint country has to offer.

Fly Away Flies: Organic Repellents for Flies and Moths

| Articles | June 3, 2008

Flies have probably been on this earth for longer than humans have and yet, humans have taken over and would like the flies

to take a hike. It seems they’re buzzing around the kitchen all summer long and nothing, not even the fly swatter can get

rid of them. Moths take over at night and hover around the patio light, making nuisances of themselves. Fortunately,

there are several organic pest control methods that can keep them out of your living space.

One organic fly repellent is crushed mint. You can crush the fresh mint leaves (from your garden or the plant store) and

put them into little sachets. Place them around your home and watch the flies disappear. In addition, bay leaves,

eucalyptus leaves and cloves put in sachets or placed around the house will act as repellents of flies. It seems as though

there are a lot or organic herbs that flies don’t like.

Another great organic fly repellent that acts like flypaper involves mixing a quarter cup of corn syrup or maple syrup, a

tablespoon of granulated sugar and a tablespoon of brown sugar in a bowl. Then you soak the mixture in brown craft paper

and let it dry overnight. The next day, you can poke a hole in each strip and hang it with a paperclip or some string.

Flies are attracted to the organic mixture and get stuck on it, rendering them helpless.

It seems like science is helping us out more and more when it comes to organic fly repellents. You can now buy completely

organic, nontoxic, pheromone-based fly trap for indoors or outdoors. Pheromones are chemical sex attractants for flies that

draw them in and help them stick to the inside of the trap.

Moths are flying insects that are attracted to light and can sometimes end up in the house. Certain moths can get into your

clothing and can eat away at the fabric. Fortunately, there are several organic pest control methods for moths. One

involves putting cedar chips in a square of cheesecloth to make a sachet. One can also use cedar oil, also referred to as

juniper oil and drench pieces of fabric to drive the flying bugs away.

Another organic and natural moth repellent involves using dried lemon peels. Place them in a clothes chest or tie some up

in the cheesecloth to keep them out of your clothing. Other organic herbal remedies include making sachets containing

lavender, rose petals or rosemary and placing them between the folds of your clothing or inside the closets.

Finally, science has helped us with moths as well, providing us with organic pheromone-based moth traps for your pantry or

for clothing. Outdoors, a “bug zapper” is a light that is associated with a zap of electricity. This will keep moths and

other flying insects to a minimum, as long as the “zapping” sound doesn’t drive you crazy. Moths and flies are insects for

which safe chemical repellents don’t exist. This means that using organic methods for repelling the insects are going to be

the safest choice by far and will help make the warm summer days and nights more comfortable.
