Scented Candles – Take Me AWAY!Written by M J Plaster
Remember old Calgon commercial—"Take me away Calgon!" There's only one thing that can take you away faster than a Calgon bath, and that's a scented candle. Whether you want a breath of fresh spring air, or you want to transport yourself to a South Sea paradise minus hassle of airport security, crowded, delayed flights and lost baggage, grab a scented candle, and travel wherever your imagination leads. Smell is a powerful sense, and you can use it to alter your mood within seconds with flicker of a candle. In fact, why not keep a supply of scented candles in bathroom when you don't have time to luxuriate in bathtub. Envelope yourself in fragrance while you shower, dry and blow-dry.
Close your eyes and think of each season: winter, spring, summer and fall each evoke special "scentual" memories. If it's dead of winter and you've already suffered through 73 days of snow cover, light a piña colada candle or a seaside candle and pop in your favorite Beach Boys CD. Inhale scents of summer and forget about cold for a few divine moments. Select a delicate floral candle or maybe a rain forest scent to remind you that April showers are right around corner. If it's 102° F in shade, there's nothing like a pine-scented candle to send a quick shiver up your back. Longing for fall? Light a pumpkin candle to evoke Harvest Moon and bounty of autumn. Whatever occasion you'd like to recreate, it's only a candle away. That's power of sense of smell.
Holidays are incomplete without candles. If you think back to your favorite holiday gatherings, your mind will probably wander to your favorite scents. Think about your favorite Christmas tree, and you're bound to remember crisp smell of pine or cedar. The traditional holiday season from Thanksgiving to New Year provides a natural cornucopia of fragrance. From pumpkin pie to peppermint ice cream to vanilla, scents of holiday season are everywhere.
Perhaps you use an artificial tree instead of a fresh-cut tree each year. Simulate scent of a Frazier fir with candles. Artificial trees are getting closer to their natural kissing cousins with each passing season, but they remain "flat" without accompanying scent. They just can't bring smell of Christmas into a home like real thing. Light a few pine or cedar candles, and voila—you may never miss genuine article.
Guide to Mounting your Satellite DishWritten by Adam
The Dish Network satellite dish is only about 2 feet in diameter. Very much a space saver when it comes to mounting satellite dish on a wall, fence or garage!
Since satellite dish is small, it is also light and not bulky in size, this also makes it easier to mount.
Satellite dishes have two antennae's which are pointing back to dish and shooting off into blue sky.
These 2 receiver antennas help bring in a signal to your dish and display signals they receive on your television.
If you purchase a satellite dish brand new, you won't have to worry about mounting it, because your local satellite installation crew will do all installing for you. They don't want you trying to climb up a 10 foot ladder to mount their dish, so they'll do it for you, which is usually free anyways.
But if you do have to mount your dish yourself, make sure you have Dish Network satellite pointing directly into sky away from trees, little children and buildings.
By following this step, you will be able to receive most premium possible signal from your satellite dish. This will also provide quality viewing on your television screen!
