She didn’t mind me laughing at her because she knows better. I gave her an option last year new TV or electric guitar; she chooses the electric guitar so end of story.

Annoyed with me yet?

Seems like I can’t shut up here keep talking about losing weight. Well, as I said I gained so much weight over the year and needed to lose at least 30 pounds. None of my jeans/pants fits and I promise myself not to buy any new pants. With what I’m feeling right now guarantee more pounds will be added. Fat burners what I need right now and Decaslim might be the answer. What I’ve read this is the kind of weight loss supplement takes a safe and natural draw near to help you lose weight. One of the ingredients of decaslim is green tea and I heard a lot that green tea is an unbelievably effective diet pill ingredient.

Cut onion without crying

I always in tears while cutting an onion and feel like a baby. When I make onion I ask hubby to cut the onions for me. After watching this video I am hoping I'll be tears free.

Here's some Steps to Chop Onions Without Tears

Use a Sharp Knife

1. Use a very sharp knife when cutting onions. The enzymes are released when cells are broken or crushed; using a sharp knife slices through the onion rather than crushing and thus, fewer enzymes are released.

Chill the Onions
1. Chill your onions in the freezer before cutting them. This reduces the amount of the acid enzyme released into the air. This was found to be the most effective way to reduce tears by the television program Food Detectives.[1]

Don't get the gas in your eyes
1. Wear gas-tight goggles or a mask;
2. Cut the onion next to a strong draft from a fume hood or fan so that the gas is pulled away from your eyes; or
3. Wear contact lenses (easy enough if you wear them anyway) - they create a barrier between the surface of your eyes and the gas.

Absorb the gas in water
1. Cut the onion under water
2. Cut the onion near running water or a cloud of steam (from a kettle or pan of water)
3. Breathe through your mouth (to draw the gas over your wet tongue) or stick your tongue out.

Slow or stop the reaction that makes the gas
1. Put vinegar on the chopping board (the acid denatures the enzyme);
2. Soak the onion in water (the enzyme is denatured by the water-air boundary); or
3. Soak the onion in salt water (the ionic solution denatures the enzyme).

The Candle Method
1. Light a candle and set it near the cutting board before cutting the onion. The gas released by the onion is drawn into the flame of a candle.

Onions are Tubular

1. Because onion "flesh" is tubular in construction - like thousands of tiny tubes side by side, pointing toward the top and bottom of the onion - pointing the tubes away from you while cutting will keep the onion from spraying in your eyes. Of course, a breeze of any kind can send the fine, misty spray toward your eyes, so pay attention to air currents too.

1. Chew bread or gum. Many people report that chewing, especially gum, helps avoid tears when cutting onions.

Cut carefully to avoid releasing the enzyme (watch video above)
There are many ways to do this, but the important thing is to avoid cutting the root until you really need to, as this is where the highest concentration of enzymes is located.

Essential Desert Objects

A judge was punishing three men because they had committed a crime. Their sentence was a few years in the desert. He said that they could each take one thing with them.

The first guy decides to take an umbrella, so that he can have shade whenever he wants.

The second guy decides to take a water bottle so that he won't get thirsty.

Finally, the third guy decides to take a car door.

The judge asked, "Why in the world would you want to take a car door?" The man replies, "Just in case it gets hot, I can roll down the window."

Corsets for me?

I have been doing my laundry since last year (means 2 weeks ago); surprisingly I am not still done. Seriously, I’m still not done including folding and ironing. While doing it I clean out my closet and drawers. Gosh- so much clothes doesn’t fit anymore, even the corsets I found in my drawer won’t fit either. Time to buy a new one, but before I dare to buy it I need to lose some weight first.

Affordable term life insurance

Now that I don’t have a job I am thinking of getting a life insurance of my own. You know we don’t know what’s going to happen every day and having a life insurance is always great to protect our loved ones.

I know there are many different types of life insurance and choosing the right one can be difficult. However, as far as I understand the most simple and inexpensive type of life insurance is the term life insurance. And happy to know I found the most affordable term life insurance rates at Wholesale Insurance.

Small business opportunities

Now that I lost my job, I am trying to find a new one. There aren’t a lot of job opportunities in Michigan for me since the auto industry is doing pretty badly at the moment. I've been thinking just to open my own little shop, a friend was telling me about this small business opportunities I might be interested. It's nice for a little change, and I want to try to have a small business, even though I really don't know anything about opening a business... I could learn very quickly, but this is a very slight chance that this shop that I could open would do any good with this bad economy.
