Help to fight heart disease

In the United States heart disease is a major killer for men as well as women. Each and every one of us probably knows someone who has died form this dreadful disease or who is afflicted with it. More than likely it is some in our families or someone very close to us. You might even be someone who has survived to tell your story to your friends and family.

The American Heart Association in conjunction with Chiquita and Fresh Express go red for women. They have created a website where women can go to tell their stories for others to read and maybe even save their lives or the life of someone close to them. By signing up and posting your story you help to show your support to help beat heart disease.

In conjunction with signing up if you purchase select products from participating retailers such as Albertsons and others $.10 will be donated to the American Heart Association for every unit that is sold. You eat bagged salad anyway so why not just purchase the one that will donate to help f…

Direct electricity may not be enough

Is there a new building in your future? Whether it is your first building or an additional one you might need some type of transformer if you are planning on consuming large amounts of electricity. If it is a machine shop then you will definitely be using large amounts of electricity and will need a transformer and probably it will be a three phase transformer to better direct the flow of electricity. Now there are different types of transformers but three phase dry type transformers are among the best.

The three phase dry type transformers can be used in several situations from indoor to outdoor applications. One reason why these types of transformers are the best is because they require very little maintenance and will give years of trouble free service. These are also great because the do not require fire proof vaults or toxic gas vents.

If you are dealing with equipment that deals with microprocessors then you will probably need a single phase three phase converter to protect your s…

My two interesting shots

These pictures were both taken in front of our apartment, at the same time and day. I thought they were interesting. The one on the left shows winter season, while the other one on the right shows summer or spring. I guess it has something to do with the weather here in Texas.. If you haven't been to Texas, let me tell you, weather here is very unpredictable.. but I love Texas, living here for 4 years has been a wonderful experience. I am glad, we don't get snow all the time.

The future of advertising

If you have ever been to New York City then you probably have seen all of the digital signage that there is all over Time Square. There is a sign near our house that is a digital sign and it is really cool. It looks like a giant plasma screen. If people were to see any business advertising there then it really increase sells. That type of digital signage can be seen from great distances. Not only can these types of signs be used on billboards but it can also be used inside of business to encourage certain behavior. These new signs are the future of advertising so get with the times and be notices today.

Stay warm and toasty all night

In the winter, climbing into a cold bed is not very comfortable even though the heater maybe on the sheets may still be cold, and it takes a while for your body heat to warm up those cold sheets. Why would you want to get into a cold bed and wait for it to get warm. When you can climb into a bed that is already warmed up. Personally I would prefer to climb into a warm bed versus a cold bed. The best way to do this would be to use heated mattress pads or a heated comforter. Sleeping in a bed without a heated mattress pad can be very cold and uncomfortable. So if you are like me who is always cold, a heated mattress pad would keep you warm at night
