Congratulations, Sweetheart! I Bought a Clarity Enhanced Diamond!

Posted on January 14, 2019 in Uncategorized

Like many other young gentlemen, you did your research, and decided to propose to your beloved with a clarity enhanced diamond ring in your hand. Good move, and congratulations on your bright new future! Obviously you have a knack for practicality and a keen eye for value.

Of course, at some point you will want to talk about the diamond itself. There should be some tears of joy and declarations of happiness, followed by some frank discussions about children, the new dog and more. (I would recommend a rescued dog with several sporting breeds in its ancestry). But yours is a relationship based on honesty and communication, so why not tell your fiancé the sparkling rock on her finger is a clarity enhanced diamond.

You’re probably already at a loss about what to say. It’s a safe bet that your fiancé has no idea what an “enhanced diamond” is. So here are a few thoughts to incorporate:

1. Start off with the big guns. Tell her about the matching beauty and cost savings. “Darling, Although, I can’t tell the price, I want you to know that I saved 50% percent on this diamond. And there’s more. We got a much larger diamond for the same money as a much smaller one. I trusted you would appreciate knowing how much I think of you and that I’m smart with my resources.” -When you get right down to it, clarity enhanced diamonds are a deal, and we are confident she will see that. We call it: thoughtfulness combined with rational thrift.

2. Be sure to explain to her that it’s a real, natural diamond which has been legally and traditionally mined out of the ground, not made in a laboratory. “Dearest, just think, it took a billion years of geological history to bring us this perfect expression of love.”

3. “Honey, wait until your girlfriends, family and everyone at the office sees the size of that thing. Do you think they will flip when they gaze at this large, flawless looking sparkling wonder?”

4. A clarity enhanced diamond can look just like the upper five percent of gem quality diamonds. And who doesn’t appreciate natural beauty? “Baby, I wanted a diamond that was just as beautiful as you, and modern technology made it happen.”

5. Impress her with your knowledge of gemology. If there’s anything that women find romantic, it’s science. “Baby, while I was researching buying the right stone, I learned that the clarity enhancement process has become particularly advanced in the past six years.” It will make you sound timelessly modern, like James Bond.

6. “When it came down to it, I knew this diamond had to be yours. It stood out from all the rest.” Picking a diamond with such distinctive value demonstrates thoughtfulness and up to date thinking. Ideal characteristics for a life partnership.

7. Explain that you respect tradition, but traditions can benefit from modern, high-tech improvements. You could spend that money on a couple of chickens and a cow if you wanted to be really traditional, but diamonds tend to be easier for finger wearing. A small, sparkling diamond would be nice, but the larger clearer version of same the appearance is even nicer. you made the call to upgrade to a bigger, clearer version is even nicer. (Good call.)

We hope these tips will help you make the right decision about purchasing a clarity enhanced diamond. The moral of this story: “The more you know the less you pay.”

How To Get Money Fast To Pay A Bill – 3 Ideas

Posted on January 13, 2019 in Uncategorized

So, this is the scenario. An unexpected power bill showed up out of no-where. The date, in red writing on the bill says you have 2 remaining days to pay or they are going to switch your power off and make you pay a penalty to re-connect you.

You don’t want to borrow money from those people that charge 20% per week, and your next paycheck isn’t for 2 weeks. Here are three ideas to make a quick couple of hundred dollars, legally of course.

Idea 1

Go to your local stationary store and spend $1.30 on a roll of white square “stick on” labels. Then go to the supermarket and buy 3 loaves of sliced white and brown bread. Buy some ingredients, like cheese, ham, eggs and lettuce and a slab of cheap soda cans. (Around $13) Now go home and find an attractive plastic container and place a clean tea towel inside it. Also put some ice in a plastic bag and put it in the container just before you leave, so the environment in your plastic container is cool

Next make 60 sandwiches of varying types. Carefully cut them in half so the cut is clean and neat and wrap them in plastic cling wrap. This is not strictly legal, because officially you need some sort of certificate to sell food. But in this crisis situation, doing it just for a few days is excusable. However, do make an extreme effort to be hygenic and clean at all times.

Stick the stick on labels on the front of each product and put a price on each sandwich. Also on the soda cans. You should get a return of a dollar or more on each sale. Now go out and see a hundred people, you should be able to sell most of your stock because of the convenience and the appealing look of your food and drinks. Work sites where hungry workers are, or just going from shop to shop where there are hungry shop keepers.

Idea 2

Find 3 to four items in your garage or spare room that you don’t need and never use. An old bike for example, or computer or whatever has some worth. Next, detail the item. I don’t mean clean, I mean detail it. That means looking close at the item and using some elbow grease to really make it sparkle in every area. You will be surprised how appealing and old item can become if it is sparkling clean. Next, go to all the second hand shops and shop your item around and sell to the highest bidder. Be a good negotiator and always walk away, only to come back if you are sure that this is their best price.

Idea 3

If you play as musical instrument, you will never starve! If you play the guitar or saxophone, get out into high street and have some fun for donations. If you don’t have any musical talent, you can go to the library and find a book of poems that appeal to you and recite them in the street in an overstated, but comical and dramatic manner. Wear a Barret.

Types of Wine: Pick Your Grape

Posted on January 11, 2019 in Uncategorized

I will admit that I’m rather picky. I will only eat certain kinds of food, rarely ingesting dishes entitled with words I can’t pronounce or made up of animals I think are cute. And, I will only date certain types of men, limiting myself to those who are good looking, charming, successful, or, at the very least, breathing. But, my pickiness doesn’t stop there. Transcending many categories, I tend to be picky when it comes to everything from what kind of clothes I wear to what kind of soap I use. However, oddly enough, when it comes to wine, my pickiness subsides: I’ve never met a type of wine I didn’t like or wouldn’t drink.

Despite my willingness to form a loving relationship with any type of wine that seeps into my life, you may not be as much as a booze flooze as myself: some of you may prefer certain types over others. Because of this, it’s important to understand the different types of wine that exist: the more aware you are of all the varieties, the more likely you will find a wine you really like.

However, I can’t discuss all the types of wine – listing each vintage and flavor and mentioning every grape under the sun. Doing so would take forever and by the time I finished, I, myself, would start to ferment. But, I can provide an overview to help you, the loyal drinker, find something to quench your thirst, a type of wine you’ll want to invite over to fill your glass at dinner.

Apéritif: Known as appetizer wines, these are the chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks of the wine world. They are flavored wines typically meant to stimulate the appetite before eating a large meal. They can include sherry, and Madeira.

Barley Wine: Though in possession of the word “wine,” Barley Wine isn’t really wine, masquerading as such because of a high alcohol content that reaches up to 12 percent by volume. Made from grain instead of fruit, Barley Wine is simply strong beer, like an ale that regularly works out. While it originated in England, Barley Wine is available world wide. However, when sold in the US, Barley Wines are required to be sold with the label, “barely wine-style ales,” thus avoiding confusion for the wine-seeking consumer.

Cooking Wines: Wine of extremely poor quality is usually labeled “Cooking Wine,” as if being poured into a pan is one step up from being poured down the drain. Typically containing a large amount of salt, Cooking Wine isn’t made to be consumed by itself. Instead, it is meant to be used as a way to enhance a dish, bringing out certain flavors and seasonings.

Country Wine: It may seem like Country Wines are wines in possession of a laidback lifestyle and a southern drawl. But, in actuality, they are simply wines that are made from a fruit other than a grape and supplemented with sugar and honey. However, because the word “wine” legally insinuates a drink made from grapes, Country Wines are often fruit-specific in their definitions. They include types such as “plum wine” and “apple wine.”

Dessert Wines: Known for being served beside a piece of carrot cake or a slice of apple pie, Dessert Wines are wines that range between medium sweet to extremely sweet on the spectrum of sugar. They typically include wines such as Port Wine, Tokay, and Sweet Sherry. Aside from baked goods and fruity creations, dessert wines also go very well with many types of cheese.

Red Wine and White Wine: It may seem like Red Wine and White Wine are always in competition with each other, with bottles of each snapping in unison as the other approaches. But, the truth is that Red Wine and White Wine are so different in flavor, and go best with such different dishes, that the two don’t need to compete. While Red Wines are typically good at enhancing meals made of red meat or tomato sauce, White Wines are typically good at enhancing meals made of white meat or white sauces. They are also different in taste because Red Wines are made with grape skins during the fermentation process, causing them to carry “tannin,” a sensation you get that makes your tongue feel as though liquid is evaporating off of it. White Wines, however, are made without grape skin and never carry “tannin.”

Rose Wine: Rose Wines are also called “Pink Wines” and, because they are often refreshing in mid-summer heat, “Summer Wines.” Like a beverage that can’t quite make up its mind, Rose Wines aren’t really red and aren’t really white. Instead, they possess attributes of both true red wines and true white wines. They are often best served with seafood, salad, cold cuts, and pork.

Rice Wine: Just like Barely Wine, Rice Wine is a bit of an imposter, an ale that wishes it was a wine. Made from rice instead of grapes, Rice Wine possesses a higher alcohol content than most beer and wines combined weighing in between 18 and 25 percent. Rice Wine is known as Sake to the Japanese.

Sparkling Wines: Probably the most famous member of the Sparkling Wine family is Champagne, a drink that routinely fills the glasses at wedding receptions and banquet halls. But, Champagne can’t hog all the sparkling spotlight, Sparkling Wines can be any type of wine infused with Carbon Dioxide. Because Sparkling Wines do not usually pair well with meals, they are best served alone or with appetizers.

Table Wine: Table Wine is wine that is not fortified and not sparkling, making it erroneously seem like the most plain of wines. By technical definition, Table Wines contain at least 7 percent alcohol and no more than 14 percent. While many people equate Table Wine with poor tasting, cheap wine, many Table Wines aren’t cheap, and certainly don’t taste like it either.

Whether your favorite type of wine is Red or you, having misplaced your salt lick, actually do like to consume Cooking Wine, wine has a variety of flavors. This makes it one of the most versatile alcohols, possessing the ability to adapt to everything from cocktail hours to State dinners and enabling you, no matter your type or your level of pickiness, to always find something with which to fill your glass.
