It Works Before and After

Sunday, January 31, 2016

For some it may take one wrap, for others it may take more than one, but as you can see our body wraps do work to tone, tighten and firm. Some even have inches lost like in the photo below.

January's Expenses Out Here in the Desert

Saturday, January 30, 2016

Well, January has almost come to an end, and for all of January I kept track of our expenses. We wanted to see where money was going and perhaps what we could do the following month to lower any expenses. It does make it challenging I must add with the Canadian dollar being as low as it is. In the end, everything is costing us more. However, we are enjoying no snow- but at a cost!

Expenses for January:

Gas for RV- even though we're parked, we do need to fill the RV for gas to run the generator .
$120 USD

Propane for RV- which is for hot water tank, furnace and fridge
Going to turn down furnace lower for evenings and shut hot water tank off at night and put it back on in the morning. See if those things help with lowering bill for February
$67 USD

Laundry- Do hang alot of it out- washing smaller things in a pail of water in the bathroom
But we do make a few trips to laundromat - about once a week for bigger items like sheets, blankets, etc
$15.50 USD

Gas for the SUV
Gas for SUV for our Palm Springs trip this month-filled for 
$30 USD

Take out- ( I did have a few coupons from Burger King too this month)

Groceries- this one really hurt! I used some coupons when I could but found not having a Walmart nearby made a big difference. We have shopped them and things are alot cheaper. We shopped Dollar Stores but the meat, frozens, fruits and veggies at grocery stores costed us. Back home I use more coupons, get more clearance deals, and match flyers with coupons and watch for deals. For February we'll be doing a once a week Walmart shop- even if it means driving a bit further than the other stores.. we feel it will still be worth it.
We'll also be challenging ourselves to spend less each week during February.
$545 USD

Creating a Sustainable Side Hustle in 2016

2016 is the year when many individuals from all walks of life will choose to begin working smart as opposed to hard. As traditional employment strategies slowly give way to innovative approaches through the power of the Internet, online trading platforms are becoming extremely popular alternatives. Should you require sustainable wealth from a medium- or long-term perspective, it is important to know where to begin. Let us take a look at four sure-fire strategies to give birth to a truly lucrative side hustle this year.

Knowing Your Limitations

Every trader needs to know how much he or she is willing to risk during any position. This principle can be applied to every market and all investment strategies. A sizable portion of those who fail will undoubtedly overexpose themselves and in turn, substantial funds can be wiped away. It is also just as critical to appreciate your emotional limits. Never trade when tired, frustrated or angry. Such feelings can quickly cloud your judgement and lead to snap decisions. A successful strategy always should include an amount of what can be called "proactive detachment". To put this phrase another way, never base personal feelings or "gut" instinct on a trade.

All About the Electronic Broker

There are literally thousands of online trading platforms currently available. Nonetheless, only a small fraction of these should be chosen. Carefully weigh all of the amenities that each has to offer. Some questions to ask can be:

      What is the minimum amount of investment?
      What spreads are offered?
      Are there different trading levels?
      How many customer service options are offered?
      How many currency pairs and underlying assets can be traded?

Cutting-edge platforms such as CMC Markets are able to address the needs of both novices and professionals with ease. Electronic trading always needs to take into account such variables.

Diversifying Your Portfolio

It is said that variations in the thread will strengthen the weave. Diversification leads to a stable portfolio. The very definition of "sustainable" revolves around the notion of being able to enjoy a steady income. Therefore, it can be a good idea to pair short-term Forex positions with other less liquid options such as commodities, properties, indices and equities. It would be nearly impossible to enjoy such levels of stability otherwise. Another advantage of this approach is that less importance will be placed upon a single trade; leading to a more objective point of view.

Staying Ahead of the Information Curve

There is no knowledge that is not power. While this may sound a bit philosophical, data is king in the world of Forex and CFD trading. Keeping up to date with the latest global occurrences will enable you to plan ahead and take advantage of any sudden market movements before they pass you by. Therefore, be certain to choose brokers such as CMC Markets which are able to supply real-time news feeds from a centralized platform. This is a much better strategy than being forced to navigate to different websites only to find that you were unable to capitalize on this momentum.

 2016 should prove to be a very profitable year for anyone who chooses to adopt these simple and yet fundamental mantras. Every day, trillions of dollars change hands on the open markets. Fortunes are made and wealth is simultaneously squandered. Although you may not become a millionaire overnight, building a sustainable income is certainly a realistic possibility. Each of these suggestions should be used in combination with one another as opposed to representing a standalone system.

Replacing A Bowl Seal On Dometic RV Toliet

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Recently we started having an issue with one of our Dometic toilets in our RV where it would not hold the water in the bowl. Of course we are not the original owners of this 2005 RV, and unsure the age of the toilet, so it may have been the original.

Upon determining that it was a Model 210, we contacted Dometic to see if they could help with resolving the issue. We were helped out quite quickly, and were shipped a new bowl seal for review on our site.

Having received it, Gerry installed it today as in little as 10 minutes following the easy to understand directions on the package. Now we have a toilet that is holding water and fully functional again. We might add that the replacement seal came with a secondary seal, one which our original unit did not have, so we can be assured that we will now have a longer lasting toilet. What we found by inquiring is that sometimes you just might need to contact the supplier of your product to ask for a resolution. Dometic had been most accommodating to our emails and this issue.

Dometic designs and manufactures high-quality, innovative products for the RV, marine, hotel, automotive, agriculture, and trucking industries. Under the Dometic brand, they supply these industries with an extensive range of appliances and products.

What Is A Forex Currency Converter And How To Use It

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Currencies are always quoted in pairs when defining the value of one currency in the international market. One country’s currency is quoted against the currency of other country’s currency and that makes a currency pair. For example EUR/USD refers to the amount of USD needed to get 1 EUR and the first currency is the base currency while the second is quote currency in the pair. Knowing the relative prices of different currency pairs of the world is essential as it forms the basis of foreign exchange market and is important for the traders who are into Forex and CFD trading. A Forex currency converter is the application which helps in knowing the value of one currency into another. It uses the current exchange rate between any two currencies in question and gives the value of one currency with respect to another on the basis of the exchange rate.

Benefits of a Forex currency converter

The use of a live Forex currency converter is very important for a Forex trader who dabbles in Forex or CFD trading. Knowing the current value of a currency with respect to another and making trade calculations is easily possible with a good currency converter.

Those travelers who are traveling to a foreign country find Forex currency converter very useful for the purpose of conversion. The converter is used to determine how much will be the value of home currency with respect to the currency of the host country. In this way it becomes easy for the traveler to plan how much money he or she should keep which is sufficient for the visit.
Currency converter is also useful for the businessmen who buy and sell goods with a foreign country. It is important to know the current value of the home currency in relation to the currency of the host country when purchasing or selling a good or service with it. Those companies who have employees in foreign countries also use Forex converters to know how much salary they should provide to the employees in foreign in the local currencies. Thus a Forex currency converter finds a lot of use in every field of currency conversion.

How to use a currency converter?
Using a currency converter is very easy and simple and all you have to do is to download one or search for a good online currency converter which is a web application. Brokers offer these as well, you can find a reliable solution for Forex and CFD trading at The advantage of online converters is that they are good and easy to use and you just need to enter the amount in the currency you choose and see the result in the currency you want. The only important thing you should check before you trust a currency converter is the authenticity and accuracy of the converter. It should display the correct exchange rates as per the frequency of updates. If the exchange rate used is not correct it will result in wrong calculations and there will be no point in using such converters for CFD trading or Forex trading.

This January, IHOP restaurants are helping breakfastarians achieve their New Year’s resolution – to eat as many of IHOP restaurants’ world famous, freshly made for you buttermilk pancakes as often as they wish, any time of day – by bringing back one of the brand’s most popular and beloved offers, “All You Can Eat” pancakes. 

From January 4 through February 14, guests dining in participating restaurants can order either five famous buttermilk pancakes or a short stack of two pancakes with a combo plate of eggs, golden hash browns and their choice of breakfast meats for breakfast, lunch or dinner - or all three! Once that initial serving of pancakes has been enjoyed, guests can keep a short stack of two buttermilk pancakes coming again and again until they have had…all they can eat!*

And, because IHOP restaurants believe that guests should be able to have it their way, they can make this offer even sweeter by finishing each stack of pancakes – including each additional short stack – with their favorite fruit topping for one additional cost. Guests can choose to add and switch among the following toppings: • Strawberries • Blueberries • Cinnamon Apples • Peaches 

"Since the moment they opened 57 years ago, their guests have been able to get the perfect breakfast any time of day,” said Kirk Thompson, Vice President, Marketing, International House of Pancakes, LLC. “And now, with the return of All You Can Eat pancakes, one of their most beloved traditions, it’s even easier for their guests and fellow breakfastarians to get their fill of their warm, delicious buttermilk pancakes, morning, noon and night through February 14 — and what better time to end this promotion than Valentine’s Day, when breakfastarians can celebrate their love of IHOP!” 

*Dine-in only, for a limited time, price and participation varies.

Time To Reflect and Re-look at Expenses and Our Canadian Dollar

Friday, January 22, 2016

Our Canadian dollar has definitely gotten weaker since we arrived here the second week of November. Right now we're seeing any purchases using the MasterCard at 1.50 as opposed to using it on a Canadian purchase and being only $1.00. It was about 1.32 when we first arrived so it has gotten worst. 

How does this effect us now while we're here? Well, we don't do alot of shopping for fun. We buy what we need. Unless we know what we buy here will be equal to or less back home. If it's more than the exchange, we don't buy it. 

Where it's tough is with us buying groceries. Walmart definitely has the best deals for groceries, BUT we're not near a Walmart. Closest one is 40 minutes away. That means a drive there, Jakey to the doggy babysitter for about $5-$8 and another 40 minute drive back to camp here. Not always convenient. Since we have a small freezer and fridge, we are limited to about a weeks worth of storing food. Food prices at other grocery stores in the area are about the same as back home or a bit more.. but add to that the lower Canadian dollar and it's not good. We're probably paying double for groceries here now because of that, than what we were back home. Double!

What can we do? Well, for starters, we may go with a weekly budget and use cash. When you have cash, and not using a debit card, it's easier to see where your money is going and how much you are sticking within a budget. We do already shop at the Dollar Stores and buy whatever we can for less, but you cant get fresh veggies, produce and meat there.

We also said that the next time we come back to the US we will have to be fully stocked in the cupboards with food from back home. This way we can be more in control of sales back home over the summer months there. With  me using coupons more, and sales, we can stock up and save at least on the dry goods, and cleaners. Who knows what the dollar will be like next Fall.

The goal of both organizations is to develop a long-term strategic licensing partnership that would feature a larger group of playersturned-foodies creating their own unique meal kits.

We Loved The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

Thursday, January 14, 2016

The last time we were in Palm Springs we missed the opportunity to see the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. We went during holiday season- even though we were advised against it, and were turned back, since there was a 4 hour wait. I was disappointed and really had wanted to see it so we decided we'd come back again. We had a 2 hour drive from Quartzsite to get there. Dropping Jakey off at the doggy daycare in Cathedral City while we took the trip up the mountain. ( Cathedral City is only about 12 minutes away from the Tramway).

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway in Palm Springs, California, is the largest rotating aerial tramway in the world. It was opened in September 1963 as a way of getting from the floor of the Coachella Valley to relatively near the top of San Jacinto Peak and was constructed in rugged Chino Canyon. There is so much history about this Tram...which you can read here on Wikipedia.

It's a long way up, and I'm afraid of heights to some extent but it was a great thing to still do for that "bucket list"...I just had Gerry take photos while riding up. On the way down we were in the center of the tram, and people all around us by the windows so we didn't have a great view. So going up or down, make sure you get a window spot at least once! It's a must see spot when in the area.

Review: SmartTote2 LX 4-Wheel - 27 Gallon

Saturday, January 9, 2016

RVing down in Arizona for the winter- our first winter away from home, we were quick to realize once we got in the area we needed to dump our black/grey tank more often than we may have thought. Us having an "add a room" as well on the RV, meant unzipping and unhooking the "add a room" every time we needed water or to dump. This quickly became a big inconvenience.

We were seeing people in the area hauling portable totes and thought more and more that this would have to be something that we would need to look into to make things easier for us while we were spending a few months in the LTVA- (long term visitor area). We were familiar with the Thetford name  and had found they carried waste totes searching the Internet. One product they were carrying was the Smart Tote LX- 4 Wheel model. This model showed it being rugged, fast to empty and easy to rinse and all attachments  on board. We ordered this model and it was quick to arrive, and easy to use. We would highly recommend getting one if you are boon docking or in any LTVA areas and want to leave your RV or 5th Wheel set up in place and still run out to empty tanks. Makes life so much easier!

LX 4-Wheel Features:

Easy sewer hookup with 90° elbow nozzle included

PermaStoreTM storage compartment protects the pre-attached hose and stores sewer fittings

Front wheels attached to handle for maximum maneuverability

No heavy lifting – handle hooks onto trailer hitch for easy towing

Rugged, rubber wheels

AutoStopTM Level Gauge

Prevents messy overfilling

Improved venting for faster tank emptying

Large port opening makes for easy rinsing

Cradle pivots, hose extends for quick, clean hookup

Bayonet cap prevents spills; just pull out, connect to fill or empty

Level Gauge/Valve stops flow when tank is full to prevent messy over-filling!

No heavy lifting - use the convenient, included tow handle (on LX models) to easily pull your SmartTote from RV to evacuation.
