How Do You Relax After A Long Day?

How do you relax after a long day?

The usual stuff that people do; nothing too fancy. It depends on what time I can reach home. I would like to wind down with a coffee and a some chips and cool down under the ceiling fan and listen to some music for an hour or so. If it is kinda late in the evening, like after 8pm or so, then I would skip the coffee and go straight for a beer.

While I drink the beer or beers I would like to watch a football match or watch a movie and then order in some good food. Pizza or burgers or fried chicken or some grilled chicken. Indian food or Chinese. Oh some pork! Anyways, I would slowly eat my food, sip my beer and watch the football match or the movie or the tv series and then move on to my bed once the food and beer is done and then chill for the rest of the night.

As sleep slowly starts calling my name in a seductive manner I will take off my glasses and my clothes, as I sleep in the nude, and the switch off the tv, the laptop and the lights and go to sleep.

Will Arsenal Sell 8 Players In The Summer?

Arsenal are threatening to axe any of their players entering the final two years of their contract moving forward. nd that could see a host of their best players SOLD in a dramatic new strategy to avoid stars running down their deals. The Gunners have suffered in recent years with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere walking away on free transfers. At their age with their ability, Arsenal have missed out on huge fees by not tying them down to contract extensions or selling before the final year of their deals. Negotiations were drawn out with both and Arsenal ultimately had to offload Sanchez in January 2018, letting him leave for Manchester United in a swap deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Ozil eventually agreed a new deal but Arsenal smashed their wage structure in the process by handing him a £350,000-a-week contract. The 30-year-old playmaker has since been far from a regular in the side under Unai Emery this season. With the Premier League transfer window now open, Arsenal are assessing current situations with their first-team squad. Danny Welbeck looks on course to follow Juventus-bound Ramsey out the door on a free following his latest injury-hit campaign. But crucially, the club’s three top earners in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ozil and Mkhitaryan are all under contract for two more years.

Others with the same or shorter deals at the Emirates are captain Laurent Koscielny along with fellow defenders Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Montreal, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Stephan Lichtsteiner. Arsenal’s ageing defence needs an overhaul is expected to be addressed by Emery during the window. The current wage bill is now close to £240m, so the club will tell those players to either sign up or move on. Arsenal hope to overhaul their squad to give Emery the best chance of improving on their fifth-place finish. But victory in next Wednesday’s Europa League final against Chelsea is pivotal, as they will have a transfer budget of just £45m if they lose in Baku, Azerbaijan and subsequently miss out on Champions League qualification.

New Favourite Ice Cream Flavour

This Saturday I was alone at home for the evening – from 5pm onwards – and post a coffee I knew that I would be ordering some food for dinner. Plus I had bought a few beers as well. I had a pizza and two beers and like usual after I have had a meaty pizza and beers, I feel like having something sweet like a chocolate or an ice cream.

I checked up Swiggy, an app for delivering food to your door step, and saw that they even had a discount for Baskin Robbins. Now, I can count on my fingers how many times that I have indulged in this brand of ice cream. I remember the first time I ever had BR, it was in Bangalore and me & a friend had a taste of a few flavours before settling on a small scoop of what we each liked the best. Since then I have probably had some BR ice cream 4 or 5 more times and ordered a family pack a few weeks ago.

So this night I ordered a small pack of a flavour called the Three Cheers Chocolate ice cream. They describe it as a heavenly combination of chocolate and vanilla married together with chocolate chips and ribbon (contains milk & soy). And Oh….My……Sweet Satan! This was amazing and on a hot evening after pizza and a couple of cold beers, this was perfection. Amazing taste and texture. I have a new favourite flavour!

Ranking The Teenage Ninja Turtle Movies

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are among my fav childhood cartoons and movies. I first got introduced with the turtles through the first film, which came out in 1990 and I watched it later in the year. The first two movies became part of my frequent movies to watch over the years and I still enjoy them a lot. Here is how I rank the six films that have come out. I understand that there is another one but I haven’t yet watched it.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • TMNT
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II : Secret Of The Ooze
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Replicas

Replicas is a 2018 American science fiction thriller film directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, and written by Chad St. John, from a story by Stephen Hamel. The film tells the story of a neuroscientist who violates the law and bioethics to bring his family members back to life after they die in a car accident. It stars Keanu Reeves, Alice Eve, and Thomas Middleditch.

William Foster and Ed Whittle are biomedical research scientists working for Biogeny Corporation in Puerto Rico, attempting to transfer the mind of a dead soldier into an android with superhuman strength, codenamed Subject 345. Foster specializes in synthetic biology and mapping of the mind’s neural pathways, while Whittle’s speciality is reproductive human cloning. Foster successfully captures the soldier’s neural map and transfers it into the android’s synthetic brain, but the experiment fails when the soldier recoils in horror at the android body and destroys it, killing himself again. Foster’s boss Jones warns him that if he cannot get Subject 345 to work, the company’s shareholders will shut the project down.

Bill takes his family – wife Mona and three children Sophie, Matt, and Zoe – on a boating trip but they have a terrible accident in the storm and only Bill survives. Struck with grief he calls Ed and they take the bodies to Bill’s house. As you can guess, he gets Ed to steal some equipment from Biogeny and clones the bodies for Mona, Sophie & Matt and has their neural pathways inserted into the bodies. Unfortunately they only have options for 3 bodies as they only have 3 pods and Bill has to pick 3 from his family members and he chooses to skip the youngest, Zoe. After several days it works and the family lives their lives unaware that they are clones and that their memories of Zoe have been erased from their minds. But Jones finds out and along with some secret service men arrive at Bill’s house. Mona is aware that her child Zoe is not with them and freaks out a bit but the family need to escape.

Sold out by Ed, Bill and his family are caught by Jones and his men and brought to the lab at night. Foster uploads his own mind into Subject 345, who kills the henchmen and mortally wounds Jones. The two Fosters make a deal with Jones: he can live in a cloned body and become rich by working with Foster-345, selling clone transfers to wealthy people looking for a second life. Meanwhile, Foster is able to retire in peace with his family, including the newly cloned Zoe.

The acting is a bit off for this film and the CGI is laughable for 90% of the time. It seems like a movie where every dialed in their performances. Reeves appears to be going through the motions and isn’t very interested until towards the latter half of the movie. The same could be said for the rest of the cast. The movie does seem to be rushed. I give it a 6 outta 10!

Theological Debate

During the Reformation, the Pope was urged to banish nonbelievers from Rome, which would have involved removing Rome’s venerable Jewish community. The Pope resisted. “They’ve lived here for centuries,” he argued. “We can’t just kick them out.” But his advisers insisted that the Holy City must be rendered theologically pure.

“Well, let’s at least give them an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of Christian theology,” the Pope replied.

So an emissary was dispatched to the Jewish quarter to invite the wisest Jewish elder to discuss Christian theology with the Pope, on the pain of expulsion. The news threw the Jewish leaders into panic, since none of them knew anything about Christian theology. So they assumed they had no choice but to pack up and leave.

Their meeting was about to break up when a voice spoke up from the back of the room. “What’s the big deal?” said Moishe the tailor. “I’ll talk to the Pope.” The elders were startled, because Moishe knew nothing about Christian orJewish theology. But assuming they had nothing to lose, they sent Moishe off to the Vatican.

Since Moishe spoke no Latin and the Pope spoke no Yiddish, their entire interview was conducted in sign language.

First, the Pope waved his arm back and forth over his head. Moishe responded by pointing to a spot on the floor at his feet.

Next, the Pope raised one finger of his right hand. Moishe replied by raising two fingers of his right hand.

Finally, the Pope reached beneath his priestly vestments and produced an orange. Moishe reached beneath his robe and produced a mazzah.

With that, the interview concluded. The Pope’s advisers rushed in to learn his verdict.

“These people must stay,” the Pope declared. “They’re totally conversant with Christian theology. First, I waved my arm to indicate that Christianity embraces the entire world; he pointed to the floor, in effect replying, ‘Yes, but its center is here in Rome.’

“Next, I held up one finger to indicate that we believe in one God; he raised two fingers, saying, ‘Yes, but you also believe in the Son and the Holy Ghost.’

“Finally, I produced an orange to indicate that the world is round; he produced a mazzah to suggest that it appears flat.”

Meanwhile, back in the Jewish quarter, everyone was preparing to leave when Moishe returned. “You can unpack your bags,” he announced. “I told the Pope a thing or two.”

Asked to explain, Moishe replied: “First, the Pope waved his arm to say, ‘The Jews will get out!’ I pointed to the floor, saying, ‘Oh no, you don’t — we’re staying right here!’

“Next, he pointed his finger at me, saying, ‘I’ll poke your eye out!’ I pointed two fingers at him, saying, ‘I’ll poke out both of your eyes!’

“And then we ate lunch.”

Me Time

This is is me for the evening. Except I do not have a cat. Though I want one. I want 2 cats. Yes I want 2 cats and 2 dogs. I want my cats and 2 dogs back.

This morning after breakfast and coffee I quickly dressed, booked an Uber and went to Supply Co in Gandhinagar to check out what was in stock there in terms of alcohol. A little disappointed in what they had so I went to the BevCo self service that is right next door to them, the one I usually go to. I bought 6 beers – 2 Kingfisher Blue 650 ml botles, 2 Hunter 500 ml cans and 2 650 ml bottles of a new beer which is called Woodpecker, a wheat beer, that I had never seen before.

I’ve watched a movie (Replicas), did a video review of the film, been watching Youtube videos since 5pm and I have ordered some food for dinner. Chicken wings and a pizza which will be coming over to me via UberEats. After a couple of beers and dinner, I will watch the series finale of The Big Bang Theory and then another movie before I go to bed.

Since most people will look online before deciding to see your house it is important for real estate agents to have a user friendly website set up to direct potential buyers to exactly where they need to go.  Real estate agents should check this out to see if their page has an ideal landing page to help sell your house.

Ready to put the house up for sale?  Here are some things to consider (in addition to more tips here) before it hits the web.

Curb Appeal

This seems like such an obvious statement, but how your house looks out front will make or break it.  People driving by that see that “For Sale” sign out, but see an unkept front of the house, will keep on driving.  Just like people need to make a good first impression, your house needs to do the same. Take care of small things like mowing the lawn, repainting chipped paint areas, edge along the sidewalk and driveway, and make sure your shrubs and flowers look nice.

That will get people up to the front door.  Now lets make sure the inside keeps them there.

Clutter Free is a Home for Me

Clean up the house and make it look spacious.  This is extremely important for people looking online. If all your pictures are loaded with furniture and other fixtures in the room, it will make it look small.  People need to see that your house is livable and they should be able to visualize themselves living in it.

Consider Repainting

If you have a lot of colors throughout the house, people may not feel like having to paint the inside of the house if the colors don’t suit their taste.  If you decide to repaint, use neutral colors that people can easily paint over to keep their focus on the room as a whole.

It will add life to your house and the smell will be something that will last with them throughout their tour.  It may just be the little things that sell.

Brighten Up the Windows

Not having the windows covered will also make the room look larger, which will attract buyers.

Pay Attention to the Small Details

These are just a couple of quick, small things that you can do to make your house sparkle online and in person. But, don’t forget about small details that could be overlooked. Check for broken shutters, loose doornobs, dust in hard to reach places, and other possible things that could catch someone’s eye.  Have a friend walk through the house before pictures are taken for the Internet and see if they notice anything. Every little detail will help in getting your house sold!

RIP Tardar Sauce AKA Grumpy Cat

Grumpy Cat, the feline famous on the internet for her permanent scowl, has died aged seven, her owners say. A statement says she died on Tuesday following complications from a recent urinary tract infection. The cat from Arizona had “helped millions of people smile”.

Grumpy, whose real name was Tardar Sauce, went viral in 2012 after photographs of her sour expression emerged online. Her image quickly spread as a meme.  According to owner Tabitha Bundesen, her facial expression was caused by feline dwarfism and an underbite. Grumpy Cat travelled the world making television appearances and in 2014 even starred in her own Christmas film.  Madame Tussauds in San Francisco unveiled a waxwork of her in 2015. Her Instagram account has more than two million followers. Grumpy’s face has starred in thousands of memes with many people choosing to share them again after hearing the news of her death.

In 2018, her owners won a $710,000 (£555,000) payout in a copyright lawsuit. Grumpy Cat Limited sued the owners of the US coffee company Grenade for exceeding an agreement over the cat’s image. The company only had rights to use the cat to sell its “Grumppuccino” iced drink, but was also selling other Grumpy products. Ms Bundesen previously worked as a waitress before her beloved pet gained internet stardom. She told the Express newspaper that she quit her job “within days” of Grumpy’s first appearance on social media.

Journal

How many of you still use a physical journal, especially for work? You would think that with all these computers, laptops and tabs, we would have seen the death of the physical journal many years ago. But no!

Apparently a lot of people still prefer the hard cover and paper variety to making notes on your computer. It’s easier to carry around and make notes on the book rather than carrying laptops around. Hell, not everyone gets a laptop and mostly you are restricted to desktop computers and there is no way you are lugging those around.

So I buy these journals and I keep a pen handy ……a lot of areas I work in are a “no pen and no paper zone”. But I persist and I try to maintain one for work. If I had a proper desk drawer I could keep it safe and sound. I try.

Unwelcomed

Three couples–an elderly couple, a middle-aged couple and a young newlywed couple–wanted to join a Baptist church. The pastor says, “We have special requirements for new parishioners. You must abstain from having sex for two weeks.”

The couples agreed and came back at the end loans quick cash of two weeks.

The pastor goes up to the elderly couple and asks, “Were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?”

The old man replies, “No problem at all, Pastor.”

“Congratulations! Welcome to the church!” said the pastor.

The pastor goes to the middle-aged couple and asks, “Well, were you able to abstain from sex for the two weeks?”

The man replied, “The first week was not too bad. The second week I had to sleep on the couch for a couple of nights but, yes we made it.”

“Congratulations! Welcome to the church,” said the pastor.

The pastor then goes to the newlywed couple and asks, “Well, were you colonial loans able to abstain from sex for two weeks?”

“Well Pastor, we were not able to go without sex for the two weeks,” the young man replied.

“What Happened?” inquired the pastor.

“My wife was reaching for a light bulb on the top shelf and dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, I couldn’t help myself and we had sex right there on the floor.”

The pastor said, “Well, then you’re not to borrow money welcome in the Baptist church.”

“That’s OK,” said the young man, “We’re not welcome at the supermarket anymore either.”

Head Cold Gets Me Down

I have been working the general shift for 2 and a half weeks now; this will be my 3rd week in a row. I am conducting sessions, 5 days per set of employees who are moving from one section to another. So this would be my 3rd set of people (9 in each batch).

However, today I am unwell. I woke up with a really bad cold – where I caught it I do not know. I was sneezing uncomfortably throughout the morning while drinking coffee and getting ready to go to work. I managed to stay ok during the ride to the office but pretty soon I was sneezing really badly. I managed to get through the morning section and left the team for a long lunch at 1pm. Post lunch, I had to send them to the production floor to observe and buddy up with tenured folk in the section that they are going to move to.

That gave me a couple of hours where I could rest. I tried to get some lozenges (as my throat was kinda sore) and tried to work on a couple of reports. But I wanted to rest and so went to the dormitory in the office and lay down on one of the beds for a while. But by 4:30 pm I was too tired and I just wanted to go home. I made arrangements for the batch and came back home. I will go to bed early.

Pyewacket

Pyewacket is a 2017 Canadian horror thriller film written and directed by Adam MacDonald. It stars Laurie Holden and Nicole Muñoz. It was screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

Leah Reyes is a teenager fascinated with black magic and occult practices. Following the death of Leah’s father, she becomes more and more obsessed with researching the occult. One evening she is late from coming home from a book signing and later drinking beer and smoking weed with her friends. Her grieving mother decides to move to a remote woodland house for a fresh start, forcing Leah to leave her school friends behind and join her. Leah soon feels isolated and frustrated in the new home, and after a fierce argument with her mother, she wishes death on her. Venturing deep into the forest, Leah performs an occult ritual from one of her books to summon the demon Pyewacket to kill her mother. However, Leah bonds with her mother shortly afterwards, and she soon regrets her actions.

Strange things start to happen in the house as Leah hears loud thuds from the attic but her mom can’t find anything or anyone. Also the door is open when they come down in the morning and there’s piles of dirt on the floors. At night Pyewacket appears as a dark figure in Leah’s room, unseen by her and drags her into the forest. Leah wakes up next to a tree with blood on her.  She turns to her school friends for help, and her best friend Janice agrees to stay at Leah’s house overnight to help her lift the curse. However, Pyewacket attacks Janice in the night, and the following morning Leah and her mother find her cowering in the car, too terrified to say what happened to her. Leah then seeks advice from aranormalist Rowan Dove, who advises that the only way to stop the demon is to perform the same summoning ritual in the same place, but in reverse. He also warns that Pyewacket is a devious shape-shifter and Leah must not trust anyone until the curse is lifted.

When Leah returns to the forest and begins the reverse ritual, she stops when she sees her mother lying dead nearby, but also hears her mother calling out for her. In a panic, Leah calls 911, and then her friend Aaron to pick her up. Returning to the house, Leah is confronted by Pyewacket, who first takes the form of Leah’s mother, and then of a monstrous hag. Leah hides in the attic, and when her mother returns home, Leah is convinced that she is another of Pyewacket’s illusions, so that night she douses her mother with gasoline and sets her on fire, believing that she is killing the demon. This in turn sets the house on fire, and when Aaron arrives he finds Leah unconscious outside as the house burns down. The film ends with Leah being interviewed by a police detective about her mother’s death. After playing a recording of Leah’s 911 call where she said her mother’s body was in the woods, the detective reveals that the only body the police found was a burned one in the ruins of the house. Leah is horrified as she realises Pyewacket tricked her into killing her mother.

Not at all scary but atmospheric in places. There’s some good acting from Holden & Munoz but overall the movie needs something more. For a long time we don’t see anything and it’s more like a mother-daughter drama until the latter parts of the film. 7 outta 10!

Simple Ways to Save Money This Summer

Are you hoping to have the summer of a lifetime, but have a limited amount of cash in the bank? No need to panic, it’s most definitely still achievable! Money is great and having more of it certainly makes life easier, but you don’t need to miss out on fun experiences and making memories just because you’re on a budget. Here are some ways you can save money this summer, get out there and have an amazing time without feeling limited by your bank balance.

Look for free and cheap days out

You might feel like days out in the summer need to be theme parks, water parks, zoos and expensive day trips but it’s not the case. Sometimes the best times are those that are unexpected- and they can be completely free. Look for events held by your town or city, often festivals and other celebrations are held which are free to look around. Check out Facebook events, again there are lots of fun days out which you might not have thought of yourself but can end up being some of your summer highlights when you head down. You could book a coach for just a few dollars to your local beach or countryside and spend the day there. You could catch a bus to the next city and enjoy the sights and do some window shopping. With these kinds of things, they’re always what you make of them. If you’re the creative type, take your camera or your paints and capture what you see. Otherwise, bring some friends along and enjoy each other’s company. You don’t have to spend a fortune to make memories that last a lifetime. Sites like Groupon and Wowcher are great for getting ideas for days out, and best of all they’re almost always cheap and cheerful. Search local deals and you’ll find everything from go karting to afternoon tea to tickets to events and much more. This could give you ideas to do things you’d never have thought of, and lots of them are just a few dollars.

Pack your own food

Free and cheap events are great, but one way the organisers try to get people to spend money is with food. Food stalls can be expensive, and so don’t rely on them to eat and drink throughout the day. Instead, pack up a picnic and bring it with you. From sandwiches to salads, pastries and sweets these can be made or purchased cheaply from supermarkets and you have your own things to eat once you arrive. This can save you so much money over the course of the summer and mean you can enjoy budget events without the cost sneaking up on you for extras. This is a simple money saving hack but so worth taking on board. If you’re looking for other ways to save money, blogs like off-roadlights.com can be helpful as they’re written by real people and their cialis 5 experiences, rather than just generic tips.

Do some freelance work in the evenings

None of us want to pick up extra shifts at work in the summer when the weather is nice. However, it’s not so bad if you can work from home, or more specifically, from your sunny garden! Sign up to a freelancing website and take on a couple of projects that suit your skills. Each will have their own deadline but you get to control the workflow meaning you can take it at your own pace. You could sit outside on a warm evening with a cold drink and work away on your laptop to earn a little extra spending money! Writing, design work, video editing and more are all the kinds of things you can do, so something to consider if you have the right skills. It’s an ideal way to bump up your wages and give yourself a little money to spend and have fun with, without being stuck in your workplace for longer than you need to be.

Save m free casino cash no deposit oney on clothes

Investing in a new summer wardrobe can be expensive, but there are ways to look stylish without breaking the bank. Go thrift shopping and check out your local charity shops to see what’s available. Host ‘swap parties’ with your friends, where you each bring things you no longer wear and see if anyone else has things you like. You can even buy cheap items from sites like eBay. Since summer clothes just need to be light and comfortable, you can get them on a budget as they won’t need to last forever. A couple of dollars on a cheap dress that you’ll wear until September then throw away for example is still a good deal. If you have items from previous years that have lasted well, pull them back out and see what looks good and still fits. You might have more that you thought meaning you don’t need to spend anything at all!

Another way to save money on summer clothes is to create a capsule wardrobe. Start with a a couple of basics such as plain shorts, a dress and a skirt, you could spend a little more on these if you wanted. You can then dress these up and down in lots of different ways so they always look different and you have something for whatever you’re doing. A skirt can be worn with a vest top and sandals during the day, or heels and a blazer in the evening for example. Pair them with cheap accessories and different tops and shoes for different looks.

Are you worrying about the summer because you’re short on cash? What ways will you ensure that you still have a good time regardless?
