How To Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen House Home Stove Island Interior DWe always recommend that you hire an expert to do the job for you for numerous reasons including experience and insurance of an excellent job! But for people who want to know how to paint kitchen cabinets without a professional sprayer, this is how you can get professional looking results for under $200.
I have been getting a ton of questions via lately about among our Facebook postings in which I painted our kitchen cabinets and walls. Most people are curious and want to learn how to paint kitchen cabinets, and how much it cost to get our cabinets looking like new.
Our house is quite old and so are our cabinets. It did not bother us at first but eventuallywe got sick of looking at that ugly veneer seem so we decided it was time for a makeover.
It is not so difficult to paint over veneer it just needs the ideal prep work. If you hire an expert I would suggest trying to do as much as possible yourself like taking off the doors and hardware and possibly sanding them gently with a 220 grit sanding block. Only a light scuff can do (imagine you’re cleaning a window). That will save you a few dollars. But if you choose to do it on your own here are a few hints on how to paint kitchen cabinets and get amazing and long lasting results.
Planning When Painting Kitchen Cabinets
After you remove your doors (or simply masking your hinges) lightly sand/scuff the surfaces which are being painted with a 220 grit sanding block. Use a Sort of degreasers like Windex or Zep Citrus Degreaser.
Next, you’ve got two options.You can use a 220 grit sandpaper and lightly scuff your surfaces or use Krud Kutter-Gloss Away which you can wipe on using a rag and let it sit for 10 minutes. Your surfaces will be deglossed without having to sand them.
Your next step is to prime the surfaces with the ideal primer. I used one coat of”INSL-X Stix” that is a urethane acrylic You can find it online or at your local Benjamin Moore Supplier.
Using a good quality Pest Control Services can help you get the best finish possible. I propose using Benjamin Moore Advance Alkyd. It is quite easy to work with and dries to a tough and durable finish.
Using a 2-inch Nylon paintbrush begin cutting in around the hardware (if you did not get rid of the doors) and any places your Whizz™ roller will not reach. Then use your Whizz™ roller to apply your ALKYD enamel. Try to paint in exactly the same way as your grain (if your cabinet has a fake wood layout ). Let it dry overnight and repeat. You can hang your doors now but bear in mind that although the enamel will dry overnight, it still takes 30 days to fully cure so be careful and try to avoid scrubbing them until those 30 days.

Caramel Apples

Caramel, Candy, Apples, Yum, Sugar

We decided that attempting to ascertain the right quantity of sugar and butter to generate caramel, simply wasn’t worth the headache. We tried purchasing the caramel cubes and melting them, but that a was a failure also. Plus, it’s difficult to try and determine which kind of chocolate to purchase.
Can you purchase tempered or untempered?
Can you buy light or dark? After much frustration and anxiety, we gave up and decided to just buy them from companies that specialize in Wildlife Control. We found several companies online offering delicious granny smith apples packed with fresh nuts and layered with unique kinds of chocolate that will make your taste buds go crazy. I purchase them for my friends, boss, and anybody I wish to create a fantastic impression. We get compliments often on choosing such a excellent gift idea, as it is a gift that everybody likes.
Do not waste your money, paying $18.95 for an apple, once you can go to a number of websites and purchase caramel apples for under $8.00. The apples are beautifully packed and they offer apple gift boxes which are wrapped with elegant gold bows which make great gifts for anybody.

You May Have Too Many

Girls Children Kids Friends Young Happy Ch

The dawn of Facebook was one of the worst vehicles to ingratiate itself upon our lives. IT (information technology) efficiently took everyone’s lives and smashed all of us all together into a virtual universal high school, if not lesser. Our lives have been turned into”a social experiment” that seeks to promote a continuous reinforcement of validation, overstated advertising of our faulty ideas and irrational thoughts, and perpetually masturbates some kind of tacit confirmation that we”matter.”

Nowadays, a”buddy” is best described as a gathering of names or a gaggle of faces or other self-identifying pictures that corresponds to a human being. Facebook’s system of acquiring and incorporating”friends,” was the single most amazing achievement of entrepreneurial and mental proportions; encourage people to virally market themselves, cross-connect with”like-minded folks” that politically charge up the armies with”group think mentality,” join with people they know and call them,”friends,” and then, use that information to advertise a truckload of useless crap and unnecessary commodities to those people through the social medium. Brilliant.

In addition to supporting”group think” and underscoring an idea that anyone with a Facebook page and Twitter handle is now some type of political pro, we further instruct people a volume of people known as,”friends,” is some sort of currency. The acquisition of”friends” is now seen by some as an instrument of said”social money,” used to indicate some type of personal value. (Rather strange to imply that you’re”important” by the number of”friends” that”like” you? Don’t you think?) Facebook has misappropriated the use, weight, and meaning of the word”friend,” and your profile allows other people to associate your quantity of friends as a position of personal excellence, influence, and inferred”significance” Yuk! Gross! Disgusting!

It would seem that some Facebook users incorporate anyone and everyone to their”friends list” to be able to communicate to other people,”Wow! Look at the number of people’like’ me. Look at all my’fans.'” It is bad enough that the human race marvels in its own existence and accomplishments, never mind the fact that we refer to ourselves as”intelligent life” When compared to what – A worm? Social media has become an ever-evolving force in a world that reinforces a dangerous ideology of self-importance. The current use of the word”friend” is now a far-reaching concept that divorces itself from the familiarity and importance of someone whom you trust, admire, and invest time in exchange for a meaning that suggests personal value.

It’s the simplest and most obvious way to celebrate yourself and shore up an already shaky self-confidence. For people of the type, social media is the easiest pathway to celebrate one’s own personal existence, and of course, a very”captive” audience to discuss everything from this morning’s breakfast picture, a veiny biceps, Squirrel removal and every movement in NYC last week. If you are really lucky, the narcissist will push pictures of his or her adorable kids and their associated microscopic movements on mind and drown you in a disgusting world of personal opinion pieces.

Without spending eight pages on the topic, I think I can summarize my point very succinctly: the quantity of people on your Facebook page doesn’t identify how many”true” friends you have. This point is most obviously demonstrated in this way: how many of those”friends” are going to come running to assist you in case you call at 2am, no questions asked? I’m only guessing, but I would say, few.

True friends are your”rock.” They are the mortar and foundation of your life’s surroundings, the people who think of you once you’re up, down and all things in between, and the people whom you never want qualify yourself, justify your actions, explain your behaviour or validate your presence.

They know who and what you are, understand how and why you’re, and love you for worse, better, richer, poorer and always stand with you, whether the battle is not!

To pursue a happier quality of life, you should:

• Downsize! Choose the people whom you call”friends” and categorize the people you acquaint. Some feel the need to stockpile people they call”friends.” Leave high school behaviors to people less than 18 years of age. Life isn’t a popularity contest.

• Qualify! Who is the type of person you would like to call your”friend?” Is this person someone who carries him/herself with value for others? Is encouraged by the type acts s/he performs for others? Is considerate of others’ feelings before talking or taking action? If someone has less than spectacular conduct, you might want to evaluate if you desire to be considered guilty by association.

They are the sorts of people that are the most dependable and are the”Special Forces Unit” of your friends-battalion.

Bugs the size of people

Insect Strength Compared To Size

The rhinoceros beetle is a colossus in insect conditions and is rated among the mightiest animals in the world compared to its body weight. You’ve probably heard that the rhino beetle can carry up to 850 times its own weight before buckling at the knee sections, incredible (check it out)!

Indeed, it’s proportionally more powerful than an elephant which is the strongest land animal concerning brute force.

Having said this, it is worth mentioning that if an elephant had been shrunk to the size of a bug its potency in relation to its mass would increase x-fold.

All this is down to a phenomenon known as the scaling law formally recognized by Galileo in 1638.

The Scaling Law Preventing Insects From Becoming Giant Monsters

This signifies that components of a body aren’t scaled up or down by exactly the same amount.

In plain terms, if a bug grew to the size of an elephant without altering the original shape of its body, it would be so heavy in proportion to its legs it wouldn’t have the ability to move its own carcass, let alone take eight hundred and fifty times its own weight.

It would need to radically modify its proportions beginning with its legs. This can be illustrated from the development proportions of a human being.

In the human, the head becomes proportionally smaller and the legs larger and stronger as the person grows to adult size. If the legs remained proportionally the same from infancy to adulthood they wouldn’t have the strength to hold the body.

Increased Need For Oxygen And Food

There are other anatomical constraints such as the insect respiratory system, which would become insufficient with the greater volume in contrast to the insect’s surface area. It would require lungs instead of simply absorbing atmosphere through its spiracles to be able to meet its increased need for oxygen.

Furthermore, unless it was born in a enormous dung heap the size of a hillock, it would not have the ability to supply itself with the tremendous amounts of food it would require to keep going.

So rest reassured, even if someone invented a magical hormone drug to grow, say, cockroaches to the size of a human, the consequent monsters would be about as nimble as a wheel dozer with flat tires.

Its the USMC Birthday

Marine Corps Memorial Washington Dc Statue


General Louis H. Wilson, Jr., the 26th Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps (visit the site) and a recipient of The Medal of Honor from World War II, read this poem in the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, Camp Lejeune, N.C. on November 10, 1978:LoveThe wonderful love of a beautiful maid,The love of a staunch, true man,But the greatest of loves,The quintessence of loves,Even greater than that of a mother,Is the tender, passionate, infinite love,On 10 November of each year, Marines across the planet celebrate the Marine Corps birthday. This season marks the 240th anniversary of the founding of the Corps, the original location of which was Tun Tavern in Philadelphia. Marines have always taken a special pride in tracing their historical origins to a recruiting station inside a tavern. Do you assume a Leatherneck veteran of the Revolutionary War, sitting on a barstool at Tun Tavern in 1780 and enjoying a brew, would have any idea that nine generations later Marines would be fighting a War on Terror? “Terror?” “It is neither,” we might reply. “It’s an, uh, well, I guess it’s kind of a thing.””Then how can you fight a thing?”Fantastic question. But I digress. Back to the birthday party.There will be birthday balls in Marine articles all over the world. Marines will arrive decked out in dress blues, the women in dresses. There will be speeches, and a solemn moment of remembrance for all those Marines who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the nation. That number, by the way, is 44,500 Marine battlefield deaths, with another 220,000 wounded, from the Revolution to Afghanistan. The Tun Tavern Marine might wince in astonishment at such amounts.There will be fancy cakes, often several layers , ceremonially sliced with a sword. The standard passing of cake from the oldest to the youngest Marine will demonstrate the passing of this honour, experience, and heart of the Corps into another generation of Marines to continue.Then there’ll be toasts.The stirring Marines’ Hymn will be played, bringing everybody in the house to their feet. “From the Halls of Montezuma…”And more toasts.The Marines know how to do a lot of things. They know how to fight and win (and yes, they’ve adapted to learn how to fight a”thing”). They know how to keep their rich traditions. And they certainly know how to throw an annual birthday celebration. Nobody does it better. And I happen to know that for a truth.Joyful 240th, Marines!And by the way, due to my Tun Tavern Leatherneck for not only helping to save our country, but for helping to begin a Corps of Marines.Semper Fi.

Legends of the White Gator

Close Up of Alligator Head


The white alligators are among the rarest alligators around. They’re limited to the Southeastern United States. In 1987 at the bayou of southwest New Orleans 18 infant White Alligators were discovered. Out of these 18 only 10 of these have survived. There’s not really a great deal of difference between them and the rest of the alligators. Like others they live in freshwater, swamps, marshes, rivers, lakes and little bodies of all the southeastern United States. The only difference is the color of the skin looks like”White Chocolate”. They are sometimes known as the”Swamp Ghost”.

Believe it or not there are two types of white Alligators. These two are extremely similar, however there are minor differences between them. Albino’s have a pink or red eyes in which White Alligators have blues eyes. Contrary to the White Alligators, Albinos are extremely weak creatures.

White Alligators are very beautiful to look at, and equally as adorable and mesmerizing as other alligators. Unfortunately the only way to observe a white alligator now is to go to some of the few zoos that have made a home for them. This is a result of the fact that they really have white pigments. Which means their skin is truly just white skin.

I would like to share the knowledge I have learned about this magnificent creature. Click to investigate I also have some terrific pictures that I am confident you will love.

Breakfast of champions

Pancake, Honey, Nuts, Fruits

There doesn’t seem to be any Johnny, but the title may have evolved from the term”journey cakes” since they traveled well. (Although pulling out some pancakes from a hot, smelly saddlebag isn’t the most appetizing of images.)

Thomas Jefferson, on one of his frequent travels to Paris, brought back a similar recipe called crepes, which was a thinner type of our griddle cakes, without leavening, made with wheat flour and served with fruit or a sweet syrup. They were gobbled up at state dinners, and once again that industrious President introduced a fresh and delicious French dish to the colonists.

Consider that they were simple to make, eaten by hand, and the pioneers could cook them on a hot stone around the campfire after a long hard day of traveling. Native Americans probably taught the early colonists how to grind corn, mix it into a paste, add liquid, some fat and in just a couple minutes, they’d hoe cakes, hot and filling. Covered with fresh honey, they were a delicacy. With no need for a bread oven, they could be ready quickly, and if the cook had a cast iron skillet, it could be coated in bacon fat and the batter fried. Those who were fortunate enough to have butter slathered it on and just dug in, napkins be damned. (A shirt sleeve worked just fine.)

Early American hoe cakes undoubtedly made way for hush puppies, cornbread and grits, also made with cornmeal, but that is a whole different story. Incidentally, hoe cakes got its title from field workers using a plain hoe held over a flame, and dropping cakes onto the hoe to cook.

Pancakes are enjoyed all over the world in a large number of variations, served plain, topped with sauces and spices, wrapped around fillings and eaten for lunch and dinner. Some type of flat cakes have been around for centuries, enjoyed by ancient cultures such as the Greeks and Romans, eaten in China, India and Europe. The British-named flapjacks are different from our sandwiches and made with sugar, butter, and oats, usually served with honey.

Recorded history mentions pancake-like foods in the first century (possibly sooner ), and historians who research Neolitic man speculate that flat cakes made with anything handy were probably cooked on hot stones, before cooking pots and utensils were devised, between 10,000 and 3,000 B.C.. Since early cave dwellers usually kept a fire burning to scare away predators, how simple to just whip up a batch of cave man pancakes while they were at it?

Many countries have their own version. Listed below are just a few.
These versions are generally sweet:
Crepes (French)
Pfannkuchen (German or Dutch )
Dosa (India)
Tiganites (Greek)
Apam Balik (Malaysia)
Pannekoeke (South Africa)

These variations are usually served with meats or vegetables:
Latkes (Jewish)
Cong you bing (Chinese)
Uttapam (India)
Blini (Eastern Europe, Russia)
Kimchi pancakes (Korea)
Cachapas (South America)

So don’t limit yourself to only our favorite pancakes. Experiment and revel in the many versions of different countries and find delicious new variations in any meal. Pancakes. They are not just for breakfast anymore.

This Bra Tried To Kill Me

Woman Wearing Gray and Black Sports Bra

At first it seemed like the one for me. It had cushy straps which seemed wide enough to not sever my shoulders. It had thick underwires powerful enough to get a space shuttle (but made for a woman… ).

It was not very pretty, however, a characteristic that many of those “large” ones share. I wanted a pretty bra even though my husband’s view on bras is: “It’s what’s inside that counts”.

What I thought was the perfect bra made me feel supported, and I looked a little thinner with everything in its place. I took very good care of it, hanging it up to dry like instructed on the care tag.

It started as only a little poke in the side, just under my arm. Each time I cleaned it and wore it, I would pull the cable back in further and further, the hole getting bigger each time.

Eventually, I was being simultaneously stabbed at the rib cage and in the armpit by a rogue piece of underwire. I struggled with it, but the pervasive bit of load-bearing lingerie prevailed, my ribs and armpit bravely defending themselves.

Every day we read about new scientific discoveries. Scientists have sent people into space. New drugs are designed to deal with an array of disorders and ailments.

There are brilliant engineers who build complex bridges and overpasses, roller coasters, complex pieces of machinery, and massive buildings able to withstand earthquakes!

Why has no one been able to develop the perfect bra? I understand there’s a brilliant female engineer out there who has gotten up in the morning, place the women in their place, and thought “there’s gotta be a better way!” .

Do not get me wrong, I am extremely thankful for modern scientific discoveries and Mims Bat Removal! And I’m not suggesting that bosom support is as important as curing illnesses. However, if bright minds can come up with those little blue pills we all understand about-thanks to those not-so-ambiguous commercials (bathtubs side by side and so on)-then why can not someone figure out how to keep the women in place without breaking your back, denting your shoulders, snagging everything else in the wash, or attempting to kill us? And, if it is not too much trouble, can someone at least make some of them pretty for those of us on the higher end of the cup chart?

I’m delighted to say that, in the long run, I beat the bra of terror. (Why WAS the underwire so sharp? Who believed to run it on a whetting stone before putting it in some poor, unsuspecting woman’s undergarment?) .

It’s different, not quite as supportive. But at least I can wear it without fear of a punctured lung and having to explain it to the great folks in the ER.

I’m the underwire warrior!

Your Kids Need To Do Their Homework

Black Click Pen on White Paper

“Can you do your homework?” I ask my student. “Come on mister… you know I do not like homework.” Over time I have heard something like this a lot of times. In actuality, I think now I am running into this response more than I did just a short decade ago. I need to admit that this lack of work is worrying me a little. But… all isn’t lost… there’s still hope… We can still win.

But first, take a look at this insight: If so many people are unwilling to do their own homework, or go Cocoa Beach Raccoon Removal the extra mile, especially when things get tough, consider what that means for the rest of us who do our own homework and going the extra mile in all that we do. Going the extra mile, or doing our own homework, automatically puts us hard workers, ahead of most people because we have already developed the habit of doing more, or doing additional. We’re more responsible. Turning the word responsible around just means that we are able to respond. And is not that what we actually want in this life; to be able to respond?

Now adolescents, go learn, lead, and put the way to a better world for all of us. Remember it pays always to do your own homework. And once again, thanks in advance for all that do, and everything you will do…

“Optimum health isn’t just the absence of disease but the presence of wellness in mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and social areas. Some would also include financial health.”

Woman With White Sunvisor Running


Optimum health is essential at all levels, from the individual to the society we live in to the environment around us. We must begin thinking of wealth not just in terms of possession of money and properties but also the possession of mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual well-being.

Mental Health

The truth is mind is the forerunner of all states.

With a proper mindset, Critter Control a poor man can still be happy. Conversely, if the mindset is not right, no matter how much material possessions you may have, you may still be a very miserable person.

So a healthy mind is one that possesses a mindset that can lead to happiness and contentment with self and the world around us. It provides clarity of thoughts, good insight and the ability to see things through an unbiased mind.

To be able to see things through an unbiased mind is no small accomplishment. It is very difficult to note or observe the unfolding of events and phenomena without judging. We habitually associate emotions or feelings to events, and allow such emotions to direct our actions.

Emotional Health

It’s our emotions that lead us to act impulsively at times. Thus a high level of self-awareness in this region is extremely useful. In fact, it is essential to our well-being. After all, things and relationships that may take us years to build can be destroyed in a moment of anger.

There are negative and positive emotions. Positive emotions such as love, compassion and joy should be cultivated, while negative emotions such as fear, anger and hate need to be eradicated.

When asked about this, a wise sage of India once illustrated with a story:

One is love and compassion. Another is fear and anger.”

The old man replied, “The one I feed.”

At times, it may seem that we don’t have any control over our emotions. This is not correct. The earlier we can note the arising of our emotions, we better we can manage them.

More and more researches are showing that our well-being is closely linked to our emotional and psychological wellbeing. Conversely, it is depressed by negative mental and emotional states. Thus, stress, worry, anger and fear are some states that may cause physical illnesses like hypertension, cardiac diseases, peptic ulcers, depression and a multitude of other ailments.

Physical Health

To maintain an optimum physical well-being, therefore, requires us to focus not only on our body but also our mind and emotions.

On a physical level, our body can be kept healthy through adequate sleep and rest, good nutrition, regular exercises and a healthy environment that is free of pollution.

Spiritual Health

Through the ages, wise men have consistently informed and taught us that we are essentially spiritual beings.

Although medical science has not been able to reveal to us our spiritual nature, there are lots of indirect evidence that we would be foolish to dismiss. Stories from people who had gone through a near death experience (NDE), or dying people with heightened nearing death awareness, or simply a cure from an ‘incurable’ disease all suggest that there’s more to life than just the physical state.

Big religions of the world all based their teachings on the belief that we are essentially spiritual beings. According to these teachings, our physical existence is secondary.

While it may be true that we should focus our life more on our spiritual nature than our physical nature, it would be hard for the vast majority of people to do so, at least not immediately. Things can’t change overnight. Mindset, however, can, and that is maybe the best place to start.

Financial Health

But on a more mundane level, most people are still stuck on how to survive from day to day, where to get the next cheque to pay for the house installment, so on and so on.

Practically, therefore, we need to check into ways to achieve a financial state that would theoretically free us from the constrain of ‘forced’ work. This is where the notion of financial freedom is so attractive. In accordance with the concept, one should strive for a state where we have one or more than 1 source of income which can be generated passively, that is, even if we don’t work.

That is what Robert Kiyosaki termed as ‘passive income’.

According to him, passive income can only be achieved by becoming an investor or a business owner, not a sole proprietor or an employee. To become an investor or a business owner, you must spend the time and money to acquire financial intelligence. Unlike IQ or EQ, you can acquire financial intelligence through self education.

To get a financial health checkup, consult an accountant, a banker or a financial planner you can trust.

Healthy Relationship

“No man is an island, entire by itself.”

As a medical doctor, I’m in a unique position to confront and comfort dying patients. Among the most important thing I have observed is that dying people do not ask about their money or possessions. Rather, they focus their remaining energy and strength on trying to heal wounded relationships. It is as though there is an inherent need to get a proper closure to a relationship.

Thus, forming and cultivating a healthy relationship is important for our well-being. Unfortunately, this is something we often ignored until it is too late. If there is any forgiving to be done, or the need to be forgiven, leaving things to the last minutes may end up with an unfulfilled desire for a closure.

Knowing this now, shouldn’t we invest more time and effort in improving our relationship with our nearest and dearest, especially with our parents, spouse, children and siblings?
