Tritium Watch Benefits

Invicta Tritium Watch
Many everyday watches cannot be used in dark places, but Tritium watches, however, can.  Tritium style watches have a display that shows the time well in low light and dark environments.  Watches that have this type of display are available in many styles and colors.  There are many reasons why this type of watch is worth buying.

During camping adventures out on the woods, keeping track of the time is highly recommended.  Once the sun sets, it will be tough to see the watch display.  A camp fire can help, but it can be challenging depending on the watch.  Camp fires are not good for watches.  The heat from the flame could melt the display when the watch is near it.  Tritium watches are better for camping.  The lighted display displays the time clearly. 

Night rides in a car are usually very dark when traveling on roads outside of the city.  Police have rules that prevent use of the car light while driving in the car.  Generally, most cars have a clock, but some older cars do not.   Instead of taking a risk with the cops or your safety, you can use your Tritium watch.

Police officers need watches too.  Most places outside of the city do not provide any light.  When cops need know to the time, they cannot leave there location for light.  Most cops have a flash light, but the light can give away there location on dangerous missions.  Tritium watches give cops the light they need.  The light is bright, but not too bright. 

Hunters can also benefit from watches with a Tritium display.  Some animals are best hunted at night.  Hiding is the only way to catch the animal.  Keeping track of time is important during a hunt.  If the hunting grounds are found near other people’s homes, shooting can disturb them after hours. 

Hurricanes and other storms can cause power outages. When the power is out, flash lights are generally used.  During hurricanes, the power can remain off for days.  Flashlights help, but saving the batteries is important.  Tritium style watches can display the time without the use of a flash light.  After napping, finding a watch to get the time is slow.  A watch that lights up is faster.  The biggest benefit of the watch display is that is does not require batteries.

Tritium watches are worth buying because they display the time in low light and the dark.  Campers, cops, and casual users can benefit from these watches.  

Artistic Flos Lighting

Indoor Lighting by Flos
Glo Ball Lighting by Flos at Farreys.com

General lighting sources, such as lamps are a common option for most homes. FLOS lighting, however, is a totally unique kind of lighting design. Each piece has an artistic style. Any piece will stand out in a home, quickly becoming a topic of conversation. Flos has floor lighting, table lighting, outdoor lighting, and wall and ceiling lighting so, no matter your need, you will be able to find the fixture to fit your style.

Floor Lamps

Floor lighting by this company is fantastic.  There are many styles worth buying, but a few are worth mentioning.  The Acro lamp provides plenty of light because it blends.  It is a stylish lamp.  Generally, it can provide light from various locations.

Glo balls are very unique because most homes do not have a lighting source shaped like a ball.  The Glo ball is somewhat clear.  When the light is used, it glows.  When the lamp glows, others will notice.

The Gun Lounge is a lamp that is suited for hunters. The lamp’s base is a gun, and the top of the gun has the lamp shade.  The light bulb goes where the bullet fires.

Many lights are found on the Kelvin LED. The lamp has scoreboard type lights. This particular Flo lamp is very bright.

Glossy lamps are very stylish.  The Spun light is quite glossy.  Keeping the lamp dust free might be an issue due to the color of the lamp and the glossy finish.

Table Lamps

Flos lighting generally has various shaped lamps.  The Getto is shaped like a balloon.  It is a unique design that may be suitable for kids.

Glo balls are also available for tables.  The design is smaller, be the glow feature remains.

The gun design is also available for tables.  Because it is small, the base can to held as a gun.  When the shade is off the lamp, the base is generally a small artistic gun.

There is a glossy table lamp as well.  This particular lamp is called Snoopy.

Outdoor Lamps

Many of the Flos outdoor lamps are great, but one design worth mentioning is called the Romeo because it has a unique type of shade.  The shade material is colorful, and the designs are very artistic.

Wall And Ceiling Lighting

Flos lights for wall and ceiling are generally a clear type color.  They are available in many shapes and sizes.

Flos lighting has styles for all types of customers.  Finding just one might be challenging.  The overall cost of each of the designs is reasonable.  Anyone who wants artistic d├ęcor should consider buying any of the Flos light products.

Homeschooling and an Upcoming Review

As some of you know, I am now homeschooling a couple of my children. One in pre-K as she's a sponge who picks up everything and now is the time to start. The other is my 6 year old son. He had already learned to read quite a bit in 2 years of pre-K and then when we moved he was put in Kindergarten where they are teaching him the alphabet. He was bored and falling asleep, not doing his work. Who wants to trace shapes and letters for 8 hours a day when he'd already gone thru that 2 years prior? They called it a behavioral problem and tried to place the blame on him when, in reality, it is a failure of the school system and the one size fits all mentality. The no child left behind thing just means that they want to keep all kids on the same level...MEDIOCRE! So, instead he has started homeschooling and is doing AMAZINGLY! 


That being said....


I've been invited to try Time4Learning for a month in exchange for a candid review. Their online program can be used for homeschool, as an after school tutorial and for summer learning. My opinion will be my own, so come back and read about my experience. You can write your own curriculum review, too!


See you at the end of 30 days(and of course sooner with other blog posts!

Self Discovery Is Learning We Are Responsible for Our Own Happiness


We spend a lot of time looking outside of ourselves for happiness. We might feel happiest when affected by alcohol or other mood changing substance. We might need our family or friends around us to feel happy or we might think that losing weight or becoming fit is the way to happiness. Neither of these is really the case.

Whilst these things may contribute to our happiness, our true happiness is within us and  as we find ourselves, accept ourselves and embrace ourselves only then can we find true happiness that doesn’t rely on external forces to keep us happy.

This can be one of the most freeing thoughts of all self-discoveries. Once we learn this fundamental lesson, we determine how we react when things are not going well around us. Until that moment, things happening around us often create the responses and feeling of sadness or happiness that accompany them.

 Many people think of happiness as positive emotions. We associate happiness with feelings and emotions can range from feeling contented to feeling pure joy. While to think of happiness being in terms of an emotional response is normal, happiness is something that transcends emotions.

We put a lot of unfair pressure on the people and situations in our lives when we expect them to be the sources of those positive emotions. Unless we are happy within ourselves, it’s likely our relationships will never live up to our expectations. They may add to our happiness, but they can never be the source of it. Henry Miller said, “I have no money, no resources and no hopes, but I am the happiest man alive.”

How do we find our personal happiness? Happiness is, as much about an attitude of mind as a response to it, so to find happiness we first need to change our attitudes. We cannot be happy all the time, but we can learn to put strategies in place from within ourselves to create inner happiness despite external circumstances.

Perspective is the creator of happiness and it may also be the destroyer of it. Training ourselves to remain positive and content is an important life skill. Once learned it will help us maintain healthy emotional responses to every situation we find ourselves facing. Alain-Rene Lasage once said, “I am happy and content because I think I am.” This is the state of understanding of self; we all need to aim at reaching.

Can Time be Truly Managed or Is it Managing Us

One of the only real resources that we all have in common is time. Everything can change but anyone has a constant 24 hours of everyday. The irony is no one can manage time. Time is linear and once the second is gone, it is gone. To manage time then is a misnomer. We do not manage time, we manage ourselves according to the time available to us.

If we have to come to grasp and make the most out of our time we have to think of it as an idea. It is a myth that binds all our reference points and it is the most and only valuable resource that is available to all. No one has really conquered time all of the time but the few that made the most out of it are richly rewarded.

When we say time management however, what it generally refers to is its better use so that productivity and efficiency are increased because today, to continuously be competitive whether in business or in personal affairs, time management is crucial.

Time management is making the most of our time so that we deal with efficiency the things that we do not want to do but have to, and be left with enough time to do the things that we enjoy.

We exist only in the present, the now. It has to be enjoyed to the fullest extent that we can. Maybe this is why it is called a present.

Failing to do those will find many of us having spent time and having done nothing much. Movement as we all know is not always being efficient. Yet everyday, movement is often mistaken to be progress when all one did was like sitting on a rocking horse moving back and forth and getting nowhere. It is often ironic that individuals who focus on the end results and not in being busy ends up in doing much and still have time enough for themselves.

Time management involves planning and sticking out to a planned course of action that is directed towards a specific goal. Time management is not having to do everything and being everyone to everybody. It is the realization of what are important and prioritizing things from those. It is the ability to say no and the ability to reject time stealers. Time management is delegating things when there is a need for delegation, deciding on things with dispatch when the need arises and developing the ability to spot potential problems before it can occur.

Having the ability or training to do that makes the now truly a present that only people who can manage the self as he relates to time can really enjoy.

SO SCARED!

Contribution by Stevie Kirby


When I had my baby, I was terrified. I had no idea what I was going to do when I got home with him and I had never even held a baby before! My husband kept telling me we were going to be fine but I was really scared I just wasn’t going to know what to do so I asked my mom to come up for the first couple of weeks. I didn’t have any idea how to fill up the bottles or even what type of diapers to put him in! Mom whipped us into shape really quickly, though, and taught me all about how to hold him and by helping us child proof the whole place. She made me to go look at adt security kansas city since I stay at home all day by myself and I generally just feel better about everything since she came to visit! She left after about 11 days and I really knew I could do it by the end. I don’t know what I was so scared about in the first place!
