Adele Live Concert In Radio City Music Hall NYC ( Momimhar posted on December 15th, 2015 )

I was very glad that I got to catch Adele’s live concert on television last night.  I was in awe watching her sing her songs.  A few songs are included in her new album Adele 25.  Watching her sing and listening to her talk, I think she is a very sweet person.  I like her.

I saw on Facebook that Adele will be touring North America to do some concert shows in 2016.  And I am happy to know that she will be visiting Texas in November.  Oh how I wish I could go and see her perform live at the American Airlines Center in Dallas next year.  Tickets will start selling on Thursday, December 17th at 10:00 A.M CST.  Go here for details.  And check Adele’s North America tour dates and ticket sale dates.

Tips On How To Take Care Of Your Eyes And Resolve Vision Problems ( Momimhar posted on December 10th, 2015 )

As a stay-at-home mom blogger, I spend a lot of time on the computer – typing blog post entries, editing pictures, sorting photos for Pinterest Boards, and responding to email messages.  I don’t do these on my cellphone because, you know, cellphones have small screens.  And that means, my eyes get strained sometimes which is giving me headaches once in a while.  I do know that vision problems run in my family.  But I am trying to not take the risk of acquiring them because I don’t want to wear eyeglasses.

But there are some people who have really bad vision.  Some got it when they were born and others acquired vision problems as they get old.  That is why they get prescription eyeglasses to help them see things perfectly.  My husband has an eye problem since he was seven years old.  And he is gonna wear eyeglasses for the rest of his life.  I know it’s not ideal but what can he do?

But is there a way to treat bad vision?  Some eye exercises can help strengthen the muscles of the eyes. I also heard about some type of eyeglasses that can help treat a certain vision problem.  A good eye specialist can help with eye care needs and give recommendations on ways to improve good vision.

Helpful Tips: 

That is why we should take care of our eyes especially our children’s.  Kids are vulnerable to vision problems because of modern technology around us.  These tips are based on my personal experience and daily routine.

  • Do not overdo looking on the screen of our computers, laptops, phones, and tablets.  Look away from the computer after every 20 minutes.
  • Don’t watch television or read when you are lying down.
  • Wash your face 10 minutes after you wake up in the morning.
  • Relax your eyes (few minutes after working on the computer) before washing your face at bedtime.
  • Keep an ideal distance when watching television – not too close and not too far.
  • Eat yellow, orange, and green vegetables rich in Vitamin A.
  • Exercise your eyes outdoors by looking as far as you can.

Hope these help.  If you have more recommendations, please leave in the comments below.

Tips To Create Delightfully Decorated Cakes ( Momimhar posted on December 6th, 2015 )

Cake decorating is a rewarding hobby or full-time job. The cake decorator’s results and proficiency are easy to see. The right decorating supplies, along with the decorator’s techniques or finishing touches, make the difference. Adding roses, fondant accents, and borders to the cake takes a delicious confection to the next level.

The art of cake decorating and cake design have become more popular as millions of TV viewers watch master bakers and designers perform. Cake buyers want special design and customization when they order birthday or celebration cakes. Home bakers can also learn cake decorating to delight family and friends. Cake decorating supplies in Michigan are essential to novices and expert cake decorators.

Use the following tips to create delightfully decorated cakes:

Tip #1: Buy and use spatulas. Spatulas are a must when preparing a perfect cake for decoration. Cake crumbs on the surface can ruin the appearance of the most perfectly smooth icing.

Remove the cooled baked cake from the pan using a small spatula. Brush crumbs from the top. Add four tablespoons of corn syrup for a layer or larger cake to thin the icing. To ice or frost the cake, use the icing spatula to quickly spread the icing. Do not press the icing into the cake to avoid any crumbs.

Tip #2: Make swirls. Creating swirls adds a simple but fancy appearance to the cake. Hold an icing-filled decorating bag with desired tip at a 90 degree angle about 1/4th inch from the cake surface. Start at the outer rim of the cake and work in an inward direction. To add visual interest, pipe a second spiral on top of the first.

Tip #3: Write on the cake. Adding a name or phrase to the iced cake adds a speech touch. Fill the decorating bag about half full with thin icing. Select and attach the decorating tip. Don’t point the tip down towards the cake: elevate it a bit and use steady pressure to create a steady line.

Allow the decorative icing to drop onto the iced surface and then pull the tip away. Before writing another word, check the decorating tip and clean it to ensure best results.

Conclusion

Cake decorating is a fun and enjoyable way to make celebrations even more special. Consider taking a cake decorating class to more quickly master the art of cake decoration.

Benefits of Going Green ( Momimhar posted on December 6th, 2015 )

Going green is a popular topic with today’s homeowners. It’s easy to incorporate eco-friendly building materials and energy-efficient products in new home construction, but what about existing homes?

According to national housing studies, there are over 125 million homes in America that are at least 32 years old or older. These homes were built when energy costs were cheap, so they lack the energy-efficient materials and features found in newer homes with green construction.

Green Remodels

Green remodeling offers immediate energy savings and health benefits for homeowners, but it also offers long-term benefits. Every remodeling project that doesn’t encompass green technology is a missed opportunity with implications that will last for generations. For example, assume that each home that gets remodeled may not be remodeled again for 30 years. If every home renovation project was a green remodel, each homeowner would experience 30 years of reduced energy bills, lower maintenance costs, healthier indoor air quality, and improved home comfort. Every project that’s not a green remodel deprives current homeowners as well as future buyers of their homes of the benefits of going green.

What Makes a Remodel Green?

With a green remodel, you’re looking to incorporate three important features: energy efficiency, resource conservation and healthy indoor air quality. Whether your house is old or new, planning for a green remodel is the same. In an older home, start with a home energy audit to see where the biggest green opportunities are, and then look for ways to incorporate those improvements into the scope of your remodeling plans.

Green Building Products

Green building materials are made from renewable, rather than nonrenewable resources. Green materials are environmentally responsible because their environmental impacts are considered over the life of the product. There’s a wide range of green building products available today. You’ll find lumber; roofing; siding; flooring; paints and stains; insulation; soundproofing; decking and fencing; doors and windows; and caulks and adhesives that meet sustainable regulations.

Energy-Efficient Products

Energy-efficient products are available for exterior and interior remodels. Exterior products like solar panels, cool roofing, and energy-efficient siding, doors and windows help to conserve energy and reduce home energy costs. These products provide improved comfort and even temperatures within your home. Interior products include energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment, water heaters, programmable thermostats and a variety of household appliances.
