Ideas for family pictures

Around the world, the average internet user will spend 16 hours a month online. However, that number doubles in the United States where users devote 32 hours to the internet every month. While much of that number undoubtedly comes from the fact that more and more people are using the internet while at work or for personal reasons, like banking and paying bills, the reality is that many of the hours spent online are used for just killing time.

The ways that people admit to spending their time online will vary from person to person. Some 22% of people spend their time on social media, 21% use search engines, 20% read all kinds of content, 19% use email a

Awkward family photos christmas

Awkward family portraits. We see them, we laugh at them… but danger lurks around every corner. For you know, deep in the dark place in your mind where you never go, that somewhere, somehow, and at the worst possible time… someone will find the photos of the Rainbow Bright themed birthday party you were sure the other boys in your Boy Scout troop would think was just the coolest.

We cannot erase the past, but we can safeguard our future. Here are some tips to make sure that when it comes to awkward family portraits, you remain the laugher, and never the laughee.

Antique church pews for sale

Churches are absolutely beautiful places. While the architectural style of each church will vary depending upon the time and area in which they were built, there are a few features that are consistent to most churches. Two of the most common signs you will see in any church, besides the crucifix, are the pews and the church’s steeple.

Pews are to be found in almost every church, except for the few Orthodox groups that do not use them, and they will feature their accompanied kneelers, used during the tradition of public kneeling prayer. Pews, in general, will have specific designs and construction from church to church, dependent on whether or not they will have cushions, whether they stay for the minimalist, little construction look, or where some will feature innate designs whittled into the

Buying a home, more than anything else, is a long-term investment property. Whether it’s your personal home or vacation home, you are putting down a lot of money on a property that will follow you for years to decades.

The average sale price of a U.S. home in March 2016 was $186,000. For anyone that doesn’t have that much money collected in their savings account, the purchasing of said home will require financial assistance.

Red cross clothing pickup

Americans have an awful lot of clothes cluttering up their homes. The EPA estimates that we’re throwing away about 10 pounds of clothes per person, per year. Meanwhile, we’re consuming about 20 billion garments, or 68 pieces of clothing and 7 pairs of shoes per person every year. If you’ve got a closet full of clutter, kids’ drawers with clothes they’ve outgrown, or other home textiles you’re thinking about trashing, here are a couple reasons you should be finding a Red Cross clothes donation center instead:

  1. When you don’t recycle your clothes, it’s hard on the environment. Landfills fill up fast, and this not only hurts the environment, but also the local city and county budgets where you live. In other words, it’s hurting you. It costs millions to build a new landfill an
