Do you need a pool cover?

Last month, a thirteen foot python was found in a Miami residential swimming pool. Occasionally, both wild and domestic animals find their way to swimming pools and pose a difficulty to both owners and swimmers.

The Burmese python was spotted curled up in the corner of the pool and proprietor Suladie Miranda called 911. The snake was removed by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Venom Unit. However, investigators guessed that this python particularly could have been an escaped exotic pet, meaning that this scenario is possible anywhere that pets are kept.

In other words-everywhere.

This is dangerous for a few reasons. First, what if the pool owners had jumped into the pool without surveying it? Relative to other snakes, pythons are docile, but they can be aggressive feeders. This threat is true for all kinds of predatory animals. Alligators and semi-aquatic snakes such as cottonmouths and pythons can occasionally be found in residential and commercial pools. Before getting into the swimming pool, scan it to make certain that no unwelcome guests have come for a visit. Check the filter, also, where smaller animals can end up.

A few years back, a neighbor’s pet buffalo was found wading in a Georgia man’s swimming pool. Other non-predatory animals frequently unintentionally fall into the pool, such as raccoons and opossums, and sometimes drown. These animals, occasionally, can be harmful, but another issue is contamination. These exceptional cases can upset the sanitation in a sense that the average pool owner doesn’t know how to fix.

If you find an animal in your pool, call the regional authorities or animal control. Attempting to fish it out yourself, even if it’s lifeless, can be risky.

The question is, how do you stop situations like these? One answer is a pool cover and gate. However, in the event of the Georgian buffalo, the animal broke through the cover, and, as found from the New Port Richie alligator pool invader last April, they can get through enclosures, too.

Another solution is a pool alarm. Pool alarms track the pool’s surface for disruptions. That means an alarm will sound anytime creatures enter the pool. This way, you will have the chance to find the animal removed before the pool gets contaminated even worse or until the animal becomes a security threat.

The alarm is not only good for preventing animals going into the pool but for unsupervised children and unwanted adults, too.

Turkey, Bird, Species

Well, it appears that in those days everywhere you looked there was a wild turkey strutting about. Not just that, but he admired the gorgeous mating display when the male’s tail feathers were unfurled in all their glory.

Nowadays we are more familiar with the domesticated white turkey that we enjoy at Thanksgiving. Incidentally, why is the domestic turkey white? Many years ago our wild turkey was bred with the Mexican turkey resulting in the color change. There is still evidence of the wild turkey in the dark brown tail tips of the kind we eat today.

Should You Feed Wild Turkeys?

There is a long-standing controversy over whether people should interfere with the natural course of things. They scratch in the dirt and overturn branches and leaves. When you have a foot of snow covered by a coating of ice, it’s extremely difficult to do any scratching for food. That’s the reason I am a strong advocate of collecting acorns in the autumn so that I can leave them under my bird feeders for the turkeys when snow is heavy. I also scatter sunflower seeds and cracked corn in addition to the snow to the wild turkeys. I get a great satisfaction from helping them to survive the worst winter conditions.

Turkeys are omnivorous. Besides acorns, they love all other kinds of nuts: hickory nuts, hazel nuts, butternuts, etc.. Fruit is another part of their diet, in addition to sunflower and other flower and weed seeds, insects and salamanders. We’ve got loads of salamanders hiding under rocks in our woods, and there is no shortage of insects either.

I’ll never forget one particular morning when I started up in the woods for a walk. All of a sudden I heard this wing beating and peeping and clucking sounds high in the trees over my head. I had disturbed a flock of wild turkeys that had been roosting in the tall white pines! At sunset turkeys fly up into the trees to roost for the night. They are much safer there than on the floor where foxes, wild dogs, coyotes, etc. find them easy night prey.

How Fast Can They Fly?

These amazing birds can go from zero to 55 mph in a very few seconds. They are also able to run. Their top running speed is 20 mph! They maintain a great steady walking pace also. Covering a few miles per day is normal for them.

How Many Infants Do They Have?

A female turkey will pick a bush in the forests under which she’ll lay a clutch of tan and brown speckled eggs from 4 to 17 in number. Mama will indulge her chicks by feeding them, but only for the first couple of days. She roosts on the floor with her babies, also known as’poults’, during this time. After that they’re on their own and quickly learn to forage for themselves. However, her young will travel with her at a flock all year right through the winter.

We Have All Seen Tom Turkeys, But What Do the Hens Look Like?

A Hen Turkey’s head has a blue/black color, while the Tom Turkey has a red head with a white spot on the top. Male turkeys are quiet, secretive and elusive most of the time. However when they are trying to secure their harem of hens, they make clucking and peeping sounds, and sometimes a low drumming comes from deep in their throats.

The female is a drab brown/black colour and quite thin in the spring. But come autumn all of the turkeys take on a much plumper shape. The other flap of skin that hangs over their beaks is called a’snood’. Both may turn bright red when the turkey is agitated or excited.

How Heavy Do Wild Turkeys Become?

Having to make their way from the wild retains turkeys slimmer than their national counterparts. They’ll weigh from 5 to 19 lbs. Their body measures a hefty 3- to almost 4 feet with a wingspan of 4 to almost 5 feet!

How Long Do Turkeys Live?

The average life span of a turkey in the wild is just 3 or 4 decades. Considering all the predators out there and the survival challenges, you can see why that’s the case.

Also, their territories are shrinking rapidly. Their fondness for hardwood forests which are connected to grassy fields provides them with good food resources, roosting and hiding places. Unfortunately, hardwood forests are being cut down to supply materials for human habitation.

Despite their size, these terrific birds can take to the air in an explosive burst of speed. They can turn their heads up to 270 degrees, and they have excellent hearing and vision. They could dazzle us with their courtship displays and dances.

I think Old Ben was right. They could have made an superb national symbol!

Information about Tarantulas

Free stock photo of animal, hairy, spider, wildlife

Tarantulas have been a relatively popular pet now for many years. They are unique, quiet, and need little space, and keeping tarantulas as pets can create a fascinating hobby. In fact, tarantulas are one of the very low maintenance yet exotic pets you’ll discover. Additionally, tarantulas are mild and can be trained quite well as pets.

As with other spiders, they have 8 legs, and 8 eyes close together. Beyond this, there are some very interesting and distinguishing characteristics that set them apart from other spiders. They have very hairy legs and bodies, and can live about 30 years. They spin no webs but capture prey by pursuit and fighting. Many tarantulas also”speak” by make a hissing sound by rubbing their limbs or front legs against each other.

There are over 800 species of tarantula. They are native to many locations and climates in the wild. They are roughly divided into two groups:”old world” (from the eastern hemisphere) and”new world” (in the western hemisphere). Concerning pet care, they are further divided into desert or tropical species, and ground-dwelling or aboreal (tree-dwelling).

Tarantulas range in size from only an inch or so to comparative giants measuring nearly a foot across. However, the vast majority of species remain small enough to be safely and comfortably housed in a standard 5 to 10 gallon terrarium or aquarium tank (a cover should be provided to prevent escape).

The majority of tarantulas are black (most males) or brown (most females), but some species exhibit dramatic colors. The Mexican Red-Legged Tarantula has glowing red leg markings and Cobalt Blue Tarantula has legs colored deep blue. The level of coloring varies with the species and geographical location. Even”plain” brown spiders vary greatly in shade from a gentle tan, through red brown to dark brown.

As an example of the pet tarantula, a great and popular selection for the start spider proprietor is the pink rose or the Chilean Rose tarantula. It grows to a manageable size of 3 to 4 inches and has a comparatively mild temperament. They are naturally docile and slow moving animals that can be readily handled by the novice keeper with some care. The floor dweller is a far simpler habitat to replicate to make your spider feel at home and be comfortable.

Yet another intriguing phenomenon displayed by the tarantula is molting. Tarantulas have exoskeletons and do not have internal skeletons. Exoskeletons don’t allow for growth so for the tarantula to grow it has to molt out of its old exoskeleton. Adult tarantulas molt once or twice per year, and baby tarantulas molt more often as they’re growing so quickly.

Observing the molting of tarantulas is surely among the most exciting adventures in keeping them. If you notice that your tarantula on its rear, it is probably molting. Most tarantulas will fast for about a week until the molting starts and they definitely won’t eat during the molting. It takes several days for the new exoskeleton to harden. Molting is stressful on a spider, and it is also completely vulnerable at that time, so don’t handle or disturb it at all at this moment, but observe with fascination!

As we mentioned at the beginning, tarantulas are one of the most low maintenance pets you will discover. And once a habitat is initially set up, the only essential things left to do is a weekly or twice-a-week feeding, and regular misting of this habitat with some room-temperature bottled water to keep proper humidity.

For meals, live crickets or some other similar insects can be bought at the neighborhood pet shop, but you should not catch and feed into your tarantula insects from the wild because of the possibility of pesticides and other contaminants. A couple of crickets per feeding is usually good, depending on the size of your tarantula. Water should be constantly available for your tarantula to drink, and must be extended in a dish that is large enough for the tarantula to fit its body in but not too heavy so that it won’t accidentally drown.

You should try and maintain the tarantula’s enclosure clean. Insects that you feed your spider might be somewhat messy when the spider is done swallowing it so clean the remains up. The spider’s excrement is easily cleaned up with a tissue or paper towel. With regular light housekeeping, the caging material and cage need not be cleaned out more than a once or twice a year.

For humidity, desert species could be sprayed lightly about once weekly, and rain forest dwellers as much as once per day. Tropical species require higher humidity from 75% to 100%. Most tarantulas can be maintained comfortably in a temperature range of 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and this means little or no supplemental heating must maintain these animals. Having a humidity gauge and a thermometer is a great idea simply to make sure your spider’s conditions are about right. Glass containers especially can get very hot which can kill your tarantula. Also, added lighting is not needed and can be detrimental.

For greatest enjoyment for both you the pet owner as well as your pet, you can decorate your tarantula’s habitat a little bit. It is not difficult to design a simple, yet aesthetically pleasing and naturally beautiful enclosure. Simple experimentation will reveal what works for you and for your pet. In actuality, designing and decorating your pet’s habitat can be one of the most fun and creative experiences in keeping a tarantula! It’s a good idea to look into the roots, behaviors, and needs of those species that interests you before you buy it or start filling and decorating a habitat.

As mentioned, some species come from harsh deserts, and these tarantulas are inclined to be ground-dwelling burrowers. Others live high in the rainforest canopies of Asia and South America. Obviously keeping a tropical tree spider in a dry setup without a vertical height for climbing would result in a stressed and short lived animal. Tropical, tree-dwelling species could be held in taller encloses with slightly less floor space than previously recommended. Likewise, deeper enclosures can be utilized for burrowing desert species. Given some time in their house, most tarantulas will start to make their own hide-outs, some moving around cage furnishings. This is good, let them do it.

You should keep in mind of some bare minimums common to all tarantula habitats. There should be a simple hiding structure or shelter such as a half-log or coconut hut, or maybe some pieces of rock or driftwood. However you choose to do it, remember the fundamental idea of creating your tarantula feel secure in the home.

Not scary beasts out to bite you, but rather, incredibly agile and interesting creatures. Tarantulas are delicate animals, and when handling them be very careful they do not fall, as they can be skittish and a brief fall can injure them seriously or even kill them.

It is a fact that tarantulas are not the best choice as a pet that you will have the ability to handle very much, but this is largely due to stress and danger to the spider rather than threat to the handler. For the tarantula operator, the chances of being bitten by a tarantula are very rare and even if through carelessness a bite should occur, the venom when injected into a person usually causes only minor swelling, with some numbness and itching that disappears in a short time. If it occurs, wash the bite site with soap and water and protect against disease.

Although they are not the cuddly variety, tarantulas are fascinating creatures that can be wonderful, gentle pets. The key to successfully owning any exotic animal is to learn as much as possible about the species itself and the care of it.

The customer is always rude

Angry Man Point Finger India Angry Male Ha

Rude customers will be part of any company, sooner or later. Fortunately, there are ways to lessen the problems they may otherwise create for you. Here are 3 tips to help you cope well with customers who are rude:

Realize that rude clients generally are not upset with you

Sometimes, customers simply are having a bad day. Perhaps something earlier happened, which disappointed them. In other circumstances, they might be thinking about something bad from the distant past. You might ask these clients if you can help them in any way, and simply by drawing their attention to their behaviour, find that the situation immediately improves.

Empathize with your customers

Occasionally, the reason your customers are being rude is due to a defect (actual, perceived, or otherwise) with your product, service, or other portion of your company. In cases like this, you should do whatever you can to fix the problem, or find someone who can help more. The last thing a customer wants to hear is that”It is not my responsibility,””Our policy is (insert poor excuse here),” or a similar statement. Clients (even rude ones) want resolution, or at the very least, to be treated with kindness and understanding of their situation. While you may not be able to directly enhance the issue, you should under no circumstances make it worse. A little compassion can go a long way towards defusing the customer’s rudeness.

Recognize that some customers Can’t be pleased

For these clients, you may do everything possible, yet still be unable to satisfy them. In these instances, victory may mean just barely keeping them from leaving, and as long as you realize this, you can save yourself many headaches. At other times, you may finally realize that certain clients are merely a poor fit for your business. When clients are routinely rude, abusive, attempt to benefit from your business, or violate standards of acceptable behavior, then you should probably bid them farewell, and ask them not to return. In the truest sense, these aren’t clients, but rather problems which are waiting to happen, and there’s no reason that you wait until tragedy strikes.

In summary, it is possible to deal better with rude customers by taking a step back from the circumstance, empathizing with their problems, and realizing that some customers can’t be helped. When you use these suggestions, you will find rude customers to be no more challenging to deal with than any other customer.

Happiness is a state of mind

Man in Red Crew-neck Sweatshirt Photography

A lot has been written about happiness and from psychology to philosophy, different theories of happiness have concentrated on topics of satisfaction, contentment, as well as spiritual liberation. But happiness is one of the very subjective mental states and several factors could be at play when a person is really pleased. Whereas anger or anxiety could be defined with bodily reactions and certain behavioural patterns, this isn’t so for happiness and that’s the way happiness is extremely subjective. For example one bar of chocolate could make 1 child happy whereas another kid would want two chocolate bars to feel genuinely happy.

Happiness is generally associated with some kind of profit or attainment. When we reach or attain something, we feel satisfied and this causes happiness. The attainment doesn’t have to be material, it might very well be religious. It might even be physical and bodily, just as an insomniac person would feel happy after a good night’s sleep. So, in defining joy we must find a particular material, spiritual or physical gain or attainment and the contentment arising because of this attainment. The question would arise whether it is possible to be happy with no attainment. I would say that it is not possible to joyful without attaining something and this attainment doesn’t need to be immediate and may be related any past accomplishment. Now, you could say that you do know somebody who is always happy without any particular reason. It’s that you have not found out the reason for his happiness. He may be a simple man with simple needs and happy after a warm bath or a nice meal, so that’s still some attainment.

Psychologists have used several versions including bio psychosocial and PERMA models to describe happiness suggesting that happiness is attained when our biological, psychological and sociological needs are satisfied or when there’s pleasure (bodily for example ), engagement (in some activity for instance), relationships, meaning (for example purpose of life) and achievements. I would disagree and suggest that happiness being extremely subjective, some people may just be happy attaining pleasures whereas others would seek meaning or possibly relationships and accomplishments. So the level or kind of success which makes one happy would vary from 1 person to another.

Thus some people are happy when their basic needs are fulfilled whereas some others would not be happy even after significant professional achievements because they might be expecting another level or kind of accomplishment. Thus happiness largely depends on our subjective understanding of what it means to be happy. Since happiness is so subjective it cannot be strictly placed within models or frameworks although the underlying common factor that makes people happy is always some type of attainment, gain or need fulfilment.

The next level of analysis is if happiness could be categorized to generalized happiness or a continuing happy state of mind and particular happiness for attaining one of the specific pleasures or goals. I’d suggest that there cannot be a generalized state of happiness without a particular reason. A seemingly happy person might not be genuinely happy or might be genuinely happy because he might have attained an exalted spiritual condition or accumulated substantial wealth. So again as we see a continued state of happiness could also be explained with attainment.

The attainment could be social when we form relationships and feel happy or simply speak to strangers at a large event or remain engaged in social action, or the attainment could be religious when we seek and even find some type of spiritual liberation. The attainment or desire fulfilment could be psychological when our love needs are fulfilled or when we reach our targets or fulfil our ambitions. The biological, emotional, social and religious aspects of attainment could offer happiness according to their needs. Thus happiness is intricately tied to our specific needs although these needs could be interrelated as for example the need for status or power could be both social and psychological.

Thus we differentiate the variables that could lead to happiness

1. Biological (bodily delights, basic needs)


3. Psychological (emotional, love, friendship, personal achievements )

4. Spiritual (finding meaning and purpose, transpersonal needs)

There might be several reactions to happiness and this might vary from grinning to engaging in rigorous physical activity as joy could mean a sudden surge in energy levels. People who engage in physical activity are more likely to be happy because of improved blood circulation and general good health. However happiness being a very subjective emotional state, in order to feel genuinely happy, some accomplishment in terms of long term goals such as love or conjugal life, wealth, spiritual liberation, or professional accomplishment could assist a person to attain a continued happy frame of mind. The people that have a protracted state of happiness are generally lively, sporty, fun loving and optimistic. A child may show a protracted state of happiness when adequate care and love are provided by their parents or carers.

From a more psychoanalytic viewpoint, happiness would be linked to desire, libido, our energy levels and even the defense mechanisms that we unconsciously use to vent out our frustration and so stay happy or calm. Happiness would naturally raise our libidinal levels and make us more energetic and high levels of energy could in turn make us happy, so this process is cyclical.

Contemplating defense mechanisms, psychoanalysis can in a way indicate that happiness is in fact acting out or reaction formation when we show certain reactions that could be completely opposite to what we believe. For example in response formation we might show happiness, when in fact we are sad or depressed. Although genuine happiness could be clarified with psychoanalysis as well, as for instance, an artist is really happy when he can sublimate his desires to socially acceptable forms of expression through his imagination. A sportsman is really happy when he can channel his sexual or aggressive desires through game or rigorous activity. So these defense mechanisms in psychoanalysis might actually create genuine happiness in people because of the inherent survival and coping strategies involved in these defenses.

Finally, happiness being a state of mind would be completely subjective and would evoke extreme subjective reactions. As an example, someone laughs hearing a joke and feel happy about it and somebody else would be sarcastic or may not feel the same degree of excitement. As I have stated on the psychology of emotions, it would be necessary to determine the components of feeling and bodily reaction for every emotion including psychology and happiness has an extensive research project to consider for the future.

Retire as a snowbird

Grandparents, Walking The Dog, Dog, Pet

Have you considered SNOWBIRDING?

Snowbirding has nothing to do with snowboarding nor is it a winged monster. It is new term for a lifestyle that many active retirees are enjoying.

Snowbirds are individuals (mainly retirees) from colder or northern places who spend considerable time in warmer places. It’s a sort of seasonal human migration.

Most snowbirds especially retired folk are out of northern and Midwestern US states or Canada and they fly down south for the winter season. Warmer destinations include California, The Carolinas, Arizona, Mexico and the Caribbean.

Some bring their homes with them in the form of campers or RVs (recreational vehicles). Many go to the same place every year if it be a favourite golf resort, spa destination or RV park.

In fact, they rely on seasonal retired people for a big part of their earnings. It’s thought that snowbirds, due to the length of their stay, bring more dollars to the local service and hospitality industry than ordinary tourists.

Believe or not, there are sites devoted to snowbirds from around the world.

There are a number of locals however, who don’t welcome snowbirding retirees with such open arms.

The Urban dictionary defines snowbirds in its customary tongue-in-cheek manner as”irritating old individuals who come down to Florida every winter to clog up roads and drive like maniacs”.

A substantial number are business owners with the money and flexibility to spend a couple of months away from home.

Some snowbirds own homes in the locations they migrate , renting them out when they aren’t living there. Popular summer jobs include restaurant and retail work particularly in areas popular with tourists.

There are many advantages of snowbirding or spending your winter at the same place each year. You might have met a circle of friends or a normal eating joint and you may develop a routine.

Picking a destination for your snowbird vacation is different from picking any other holiday. You might want a location that is closer to convenient shops and other amenities. For a short-term holiday that this is less of a consideration. The accessibility of a fantastic hospital or church may also be a factor. Perhaps you belong to a golf club, or ballroom dance institution that has sister clubs in that area. Or perhaps it is closer to a family member.

For those still in employment or working part-time your company might even allow you to work from the local branch office.

There are plenty of alternatives for your snowbird stay. Do some research, test out some choices and make sure to enjoy yourself! Oh. . .but don’t go on the shore with speedos. The locals don’t appear to like that much!

Buying a house boat

Luxury Yacht, Yacht Building, Shipyard

A lot of people have thought about dropping out of the rat race and retire into a live aboard boat so as to experience the easier life and travel to exotic places. There are many benefits associated with this sort of lifestyle, and waking up in the morning to the smell of the salt atmosphere and friendly neighborhood tropical birds looking for their morning breakfast in your backyard are definitely in the top two! Once you’ve made the choice to live aboard a boat, then there are several more options that you want to decide on.

What type of boat will it be, a mono-hull or a catamaran? How much money are you prepared to invest into the ship and where will you dock it? There’ll be so much less space than what you’re used to at a home, and storage places will come at a premium. Some ships have more space than others, and before long you’ll find that out once you start attending boat shows across the country or world. How much comfort are you willing to give up for a life of adventure on the high seas?

They have a deep keel so as to assist as ballast and to keep the vessel vertical, which is highly beneficial if you’re out on the sea! But due to this keel, there will also be a fantastic deal of rolling and rocking from side to side as waves hit the ship. If you aren’t used to this motion, you might well wind up with a bad case of sea sickness that will spoil your cruise. Mono-hulls do tend to have more space onboard for living and storage however, because the shape of the hull is extremely conducive to that in regard to depth. You will immediately realize however, that the width or width leaves much to be desired and is often narrower with respect to the complete length.

In my opinion the hull of selection is the catamaran, which is a considerably wider or beamy vessel, and some of the larger boats are so secure in rough weather a champagne glass sitting on the galley table won’t tip or fall over! The ideal length for a cruising catamaran to comfortably accommodate a married couple is anywhere from 36 feet to 55 feet, and the price goes up quite a bit each foot that is added on. For example, the normal 50 foot mono-hull might have a 12 -16 foot beam, but a 50 foot catamaran may have a 26 – 30 foot beam! This really leads to stability in very rough seas, with a huge decrease in the side to side rolling of the mono-hulls. A catamaran has two hulls with an open space between them for the seas to pass through and normally the galley and living area sitting out of the water between the hulls. This contributes to good visibility above the water, and a nice wide area for cooking, eating, and entertaining yourself and guests. Some versions will have the galley found down in one of the two hulls to make more living space above. The sleeping areas, cabins, and heads are located down in the hulls on both sides of the boat, and based on the size can normally accommodate up to 4 couples.

The biggest drawback I have personally seen with catamaran ships is the”turnaround room” when standing down in the hulls. I do an”elbow test” when down in the hulls, so that I am standing with my hands on my buttocks and my elbows out and then I stand in one place and turn around in a circle. If my elbows touch or knock anything, it’s a really cramped space! Unfortunately, the majority of the vessels I have examined had this drawback, but I did find one 52 foot South African boat that passed this test. In fact, there was so much living area and storage area on this boat that I call it a”condo catamaran”! It was pure luxury, with up to six cabins on a normal design, or for the discerning owner they could have one whole hull just for them which is called the”owner’s design”. This is the layout that actually appealed to me, and will offer much cupboard space and a very private living room for those long voyages with guests. I encourage everyone who is looking for the perfect vessel to go to as many boat shows as they could so they could personally check all the many factors involved and also to see if it’s something you can live on. The Miami International Boat Show will usually have plenty of both mono-hulls and catamarans for viewing and comparison.

Another factor or decision that you’ll have to make is whether it is going to be power or sail. For those people thinking about doing an around the world trip, they may seriously consider buying a sailboat because it is going to become much cheaper and there actually aren’t as many boats that could carry enough fuel for those trans oceanic voyages. For those people planning to stay closer to shore or mostly coastal travel might look for power boats, even though the fuel will still be a problem for most trips. There are a few boats that have been intended for long range expedition voyages which are less than 55 feet long, and they can carry enough fuel to transit the Pacific or some other extensive cruise. But for a power boat of this size, be prepared to spend close to a million U.S. dollars or more for a brand new boat. By far the great majority of round the world cruisers will decide on a sailing boat, either catamaran or mono-hull. Catamarans tend to be more expensive due to the size and desirability of them, and they also may have higher marina fees associated for the widths. In fact, a great percentage of them may not match in some marinas due to how wide they are, and will have to anchor out in the harbor and use a dinghy to travel back and forth to the shore. This can be very time consuming and tiring, particularly when travelling back and forth with many packages of food, beverages, or other items required to restock the boat. These are the sorts of things you will need to consider before you decide on and purchase your live aboard boat.

Are you a seasoned sailor or boater, or will you will need to arrange for some courses to learn more about being on the water? There are plenty of Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron facilities around in the U.S. that could offer the appropriate training required to safely operate your new vessel. It’s essential to feel comfortable with the operation of your ship, and take it abroad for small excursions as often as you can before you embark on any lengthy cruise from shore. Become an expert, after all, your life will be at stake! Be ready for any situation, whether it’s mechanical or medical, and know what to do to repair it. Take a marine mechanic training course, since if your ships engine breaks down far out at sea you’ll want to know what to do to correct the issue. You won’t be able to just bring the ship into the nearest shop at there!

There’ll be many decisions that you are going to need to make before choosing and purchasing your new boat and likely training you will need in order to safely manage it, but the benefits of this lifestyle more than outweigh the negatives. You’ll need to be ready for a total changeover in contrast to living ashore, due to the cramped conditions and inconveniences associated with boat living. Pick wisely, learn all you can before you purchase, and get ready for the time of your life!

Marry your best friend

Bride and Groom Running on Concrete Pathway

Marrying your very best friend is in fact the best option, since enough spiritual attachments would have formed via non-sexual interaction and action with the best friend before sex is introduced.

After a few years of being friends with somebody and having grown closer to this individual to the extent of becoming best friends for quite a while, even many years or decades, many a person suddenly realized they are in love with this ideal friend. In most cases when a person has feelings for another, the feelings or feelings are reciprocal; differently those feelings will not be there.

By the time these two have sex, whether premarital or only after getting married having successfully abstained, enough religious attachments shaped that joined the two souls on the perfect levels in the correct elements and sequence. This way results in the attachments to form the right way before sex as was intended for the majority of humans with souls, other than religious attachments having formed only on the sexual level due to sex which was introduces too premature.

Oftentimes best friends of the opposite or even same sex, make commitments toward one another, not realizing or understanding what happens in the spirit world in doing so, which contributes and is to the benefit of a successful life-partnership. If enough time was spent together interacting in a nonsexual manner, where the perfect feelings have formed, developed and grown to full capacity, the attachments could form ardently and secure properly with equal and balanced emotions and capacities that would last a lifetime when commitments are made or vows are taken.

Individuals should fall in love with another’s traits, personality, contributing conducts and abilities, etc., yet when people start having”butterflies” around a specific individual, they immediately want to share themselves, their souls or the entire bundle and joy of sex with that person. When sex is shared in this early stage it destroys the chance of growing love on a top degree that would be in existence for life and beyond. Having attached the perfect way through the right behavior is permanently beneficial to souls, as love is taken with into the afterlife, merely for having experienced being loved or having loved another truly, that is absolutely not true with sex!

The benefit of marrying one’s best friend is that one is 100% sure one is loved for the right reasons and not for good sex, one’s genitals or sexual infatuation that most definitely would ware off after a while.

Sex can not cause souls to join or combine (form religious attachments) on another degree, aside from the sexual level, such as the”Love level” or the”Mental/Intellectual degree” or any of the other possible levels where souls could attach to form a unification.

To protect one’s own soul it is best to have monogamous sex with only 1 partner throughout life, which would cause one’s soul to become and keep clean from religious contamination to end up in the ideal place in the afterlife and to have the safety of true love, but more importantly to enjoy one’s life while in a life-partnership.
