Increase The Value Of Your Home

One of my favorite investments so far, is real estate investment. I have used up 80% to 90% of my earnings buying properties.  I did this because I want to have a passive income once I've decided to stop working.  However, if you want to liquidate your assets by selling your property, you have to learn the basics and one of this is knowing how to increase the value of your home.  Improving your home's curb appeal should be the first step.  I've seen a lot of Columbus Paver Patios and I could say that their designs are second to none.  Remember, you only get one shot at a first impression and making your front yard as attractive as possible could lead you to a good start.  It is basically important that you impress your potential buyer the moment he enters through the property.  It is absolutely nice to walk through an impressive walkway with a beautifully landscaped gardens.  
Transforming your outdoor space into an ultimate retreat can do wonders in increasing the value of…

Foods As Medicine

When I started to get addicted with books, I get to know a lot of things that interest me. It's true that reading books will lead you to a lot of information on any subject of your choice. Since, I am most of the time at home now, I begin to be interested exploring in the kitchen and this is where I started to look for some nutritious recipes online.  I began to be interested in a healthy life style.  Seeing my older siblings suffer from various sickness made me think that our health should be our number one priority. What's the use of having lots of money when you don't have the energy to spend it.  What makes it worse is if you will just spend your hard earned money buying medicines and paying hospital bills.
One of my readings led me to this realization on foods as medicines.  According to the author of the book, traditional Chinese medicine therapists believe that each type of food has it's own unique property which perform certain functions and can work on a partic…

Kids and Computers: How to Keep Your Children Safe Online

Image
The internet has become something of a central fixture in our lives. Pretty much everyone has a PC with internet access in their home, and everyone expects you to have at least an e-mail address and frequent access to it. Many people even have personal websites. Subsequently, children are getting access to the internet themselves almost from the moment they can use a computer safely, and with that comes a major concern for parents. After all, you can access just about any kind of information online, even things of very questionable nature. Further, once your child has an online presence, other people can access their information too.
The sheer openness and lack of central control or authority on the internet, arguably one of its greatest strengths, poses a massive challenge to parents. How do you protect your child as they make their way down the information highway? How can you prevent them from seeing things they should not be seeing, and how do you prevent them getting tangled up in…

How To Treat Dogs Mange

Image
My cutest pet at home, Marcus has been suffering from Mange for more than a year now, I guess. He's been on a roller coaster ride battling against this disease.  had it not been for the fact that he is being monitored and taken care of diligently, probably this disease has already taken over his health seriously.  I've mentioned a number of times before that we really love this dog so much, in fact I'm treating him like my own baby.  He is a princess shih-tzu, the smaller breed and he's very loving and a very smart dog.  He filled our house with joy that we could not afford to lose him.  This is the reason why we're doing everything to get him cured.  My son had brought him a number of times to his Vet for consultation and some medications.  He was given some antibiotics and a soap specifically for mange.  He recovered after 2 bottles of antibiotics, I think but this mange would keep on coming back after a month or so.   

My son knew the danger of giving Marcus anti…
