Keep unwanted guests out of your pool

Last month, a thirteen foot python was found at a Miami residential swimming pool. Occasionally, both wild and domestic creatures find their way into swimming pools and pose a difficulty to both owners and swimmers.

The Burmese python was seen curled up in the corner of the pool and owner Suladie Miranda called 911. The snake was eliminated by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue’s Venom Unit. These snakes are native to the Everglades and can eat animals as large as alligators and deer. However, investigators guessed that this python in particular could have been an escaped exotic pet, meaning that this situation is possible everywhere that pets are kept.

In other words-everywhere.

This is dangerous for a couple reasons. This threat is real for all types of predatory animals. Alligators and semi-aquatic snakes such as cottonmouths and pythons can occasionally be found in residential and commercial pools. Before getting into the swimming pool, scan it to be certain that no unwelcome guests have come for a visit. Check the filter, also, where smaller animals can wind up.

A few years ago, a neighbor’s pet buffalo was found wading in a Georgia man’s swimming pool. Other non-predatory creatures frequently unintentionally fall into the pool, like raccoons and opossums, and sometimes drown. These animals, occasionally, can be harmful, but another issue is contamination. These exceptional cases can upset the sanitation in a sense that the average pool owner does not know how to fix.

If you find an animal in your pool, call your regional police or animal control. Attempting to fish it out yourself, even if it’s dead, can be risky.

The question is, how do you stop situations like these? 1 response is a pool cover and gate. However, in the event of the Georgian buffalo, the animal broke through the cover, and, as found from the New Port Richie alligator pool invader last April, they can undergo enclosures, too.

Another solution is a pool alarm. Pool alarms track the pool surface for disruptions. That means an alarm will sound anytime animals enter the pool. This way, you will have the opportunity to get the animal removed before the pool gets contaminated even worse or until the creature becomes a safety hazard. A pool alarm and other swimming pool supplies can help prevent situations like these.

The alarm is not only great for preventing animals entering the pool but for unsupervised children and unwanted adults, too.

Turkeys

Wild TurkeyBut do you know why? Well, it seems that in those days everywhere you looked there was a wild turkey strutting about. Not just that, but he admired the beautiful mating display when the male’s tail feathers were unfurled in all their glory.

Nowadays we are more familiar with the domesticated white turkey that we enjoy at Thanksgiving. Incidentally, why is the domestic turkey white? Several years ago our wild turkey was bred with the Mexican turkey resulting in the color change. There is still evidence of the wild turkey in the dark brown tail tips of this kind we eat now.

Should You Feed Wild Turkeys?

They scratch in the dirt and overturn branches and leaves. When you have a foot of snow covered by a layer of ice, it’s extremely difficult to do any scratching for food. That is why I am a strong advocate of collecting acorns in the fall so that I can leave them under my bird feeders for the turkeys when snow is deep. I also scatter sunflower seeds and cracked corn on top of the snow for the wild turkeys. I get a great satisfaction out of helping them to survive the worst winter conditions.

What Else Do Wild Turkeys Eat?

Turkeys are omnivorous. Besides acorns, they love all other kinds of nuts: hickory nuts, hazel nuts, butternuts, etc.. Fruit is another component of their diet, in addition to sunflower and other flower and weed seeds, insects and salamanders. We’ve got plenty of salamanders hiding under stones in our woods, and there’s no shortage of insects either.

I’ll never forget one morning when I started up into the woods for a walk. All of a sudden I discovered this wing beating and peeping and clucking sounds high in the trees over my head. I had disturbed a flock of wild turkeys that had been roosting in the tall white pines! At sunset turkeys fly up into the trees to roost for the night. They are far safer there than on the floor where foxes, wild dogs, coyotes, etc. find them easy nighttime prey.

How Quickly Can They Fly?

They are also able to run. Their top running speed is 20 mph! They maintain a great steady walking pace as well. Covering several miles per day is normal for them.

How Many Babies Do They Have?

A female turkey will pick a bush in the forests under which she will lay a clutch of tan and brown speckled eggs from 4 to 17 in number. Mama will indulge her girls by feeding them, but just for the first few days. She roosts on the floor with her babies, also called’poults’, during this time. After that they’re on their own and quickly learn to forage for themselves. But, her young will travel with her at a flock all year right through the winter.

We’ve All Seen Tom Turkeys, But What Do the Hens Look Like?

A Hen Turkey’s head has a blue/black color, while the Tom Turkey has a red head with a white spot on the top. Male turkeys are silent, secretive and elusive the majority of the time. However when they want to secure their harem of hens, they make clucking and peeping sounds, and sometimes a low drumming comes from deep in their throats.

The female is a drab brown/black color and very thin in the spring. But come fall all of the turkeys take on a much plumper shape. The other flap of skin that hangs over their beaks is known as a’snood’. Both can turn bright red when the turkey is agitated or excited.

How Heavy Do Wild Turkeys Become?

Having to make their way from the wild keeps turkeys slimmer than their national counterparts. They will weigh from 5 to 19 lbs. Their body measures a hefty 3- to almost 4 feet with a wingspan of 4 to nearly 5 feet!

The average life span of a turkey in the wild is only 3 or 4 decades. Considering all the predators out there and the survival challenges, you can see why that’s the case.

Also, their territories are shrinking rapidly. Their fondness for hardwood forests which are connected to grassy fields provides them with good food sources, roosting and hiding areas. Regrettably, hardwood forests are being cut down to provide materials for human habitation.

Despite their size, these wonderful birds can take into the air in an explosive burst of speed. They can turn their heads up to 270 degrees, and they have excellent hearing and vision. They can dazzle us with their courtship displays and dances.

I believe Old Ben was right. They would have made an excellent national symbol!

Scary Exotic pet

Free stock photo of nature, animal, dangerous, hairy

Tarantulas have been a relatively common pet now for many years. They are unique, quiet, and need little distance, and keeping tarantulas as pets can make a fascinating hobby. In fact, tarantulas are one of the very low maintenance yet exotic pets you will find. Additionally, tarantulas are mild and can be trained very well as pets.

Beyond this, there are a number of very interesting and distinguishing characteristics that set them apart from other spiders. They have very hairy legs and bodies, and can live about 30 years. They spin no webs but catch prey by pursuit and fighting. Many tarantulas also”speak” by make a hissing sound by rubbing their jaws or front legs against each other.

They are native to many areas and climates in the wild. They are roughly divided into two groups:”old world” (in the eastern hemisphere) and”new world” (in the western hemisphere). Concerning pet care, they are further split into desert or tropical species, and ground-dwelling or aboreal (tree-dwelling).

Tarantulas range in size from only an inch or so to relative giants measuring almost a foot across. Even the small tarantulas reach a relatively large body length of 1.5 inches. However, the huge majority of species remain small enough to be safely and comfortably placed in a standard 5 to 10 gallon terrarium or aquarium tank (a cover should be provided to prevent escape).

The majority of tarantulas are black (most men ) or brown (most females), but some species exhibit striking colours. The level of coloring varies with the species and geographical location. Even”plain” brown spiders vary greatly in color from a gentle tan, through red brown to dark brown.

As an example of the pet tarantula, a great and popular selection for the beginning spider proprietor is the pink rose or the Chilean Rose tarantula. It grows to a manageable size of 3 to 4 inches and has a relatively mild temperament. They are naturally docile and slow moving animals which can be readily handled by the novice keeper with some care. The ground dweller is a much easier habitat to replicate to produce your spider feel at home and be comfortable.

Still another fascinating phenomenon exhibited by the tarantula is molting. Tarantulas have exoskeletons and don’t have internal skeletons. Exoskeletons don’t allow for growth so in order for the tarantula to grow it’s to molt out of its old exoskeleton. The old exoskeleton splits and the spider works its way out. Mature tarantulas molt once or twice a year, and baby tarantulas molt more often as they are growing so quickly.

Observing the molting of tarantulas is surely one of the most exciting experiences in keeping them. If you notice your tarantula on its rear, it is probably molting. Most tarantulas will quickly for about a week before the molting begins and they definitely won’t eat during the molting. It takes a few days for the new exoskeleton to harden. Molting is stressful on a spider, and it is also completely vulnerable at that time, so don’t handle or disturb it at all at this moment, but observe with fascination!

As we mentioned at the start, tarantulas are among the very low maintenance pets you’ll find. And after a habitat is initially installed, the only essential things left to do would be a weekly or twice-a-week feeding, and regular misting of this habitat with some room-temperature bottled water to keep proper humidity.

For food, live crickets or any other similar insects can be purchased at the local pet store, but you should not capture and feed to your tarantula insects from the wild due to the possibility of pesticides and other contaminants. One or two crickets per feeding is generally great, depending on the size of your tarantula. Water should be constantly available for your tarantula to drink, and should be offered in a dish that is large enough for your tarantula to fit its body in but not too heavy so that it won’t accidentally drown.

You should try and maintain the tarantula’s enclosure clean. Insects that you feed your spider can be somewhat messy once the spider is done swallowing it so wash the remains up. The spider’s excrement is easily cleaned up with a tissue or paper towel. With routine light housekeeping, the caging material and cage itself need not be cleaned out more than a once or twice a year.

For humidity, desert species can be sprayed lightly about once per week, and rain forest dwellers up to once per day. Desert tarantulas would rather have a humidity of 30% to 50% range. Tropical species require higher humidity from 75% to 100%. Most tarantulas can be maintained comfortably in a temperature range of 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and this means little or no supplemental heating must maintain these animals. Using a humidity gauge and a thermometer is a good idea just to make sure your spider’s requirements are about perfect. Do keep the cage or tank out of direct sunlight. Glass containers especially can get very hot which can kill your tarantula. Also, added lighting is not needed and can be detrimental.

For maximum enjoyment for both you the pet owner and your pet, you can decorate your tarantula’s habitat a little bit. It is not tough to design a simple, yet aesthetically pleasing and obviously beautiful enclosure. Simple experimentation will reveal what works for you and for your pet. In fact, designing and decorating your pet’s habitat can be among the most fun and creative experiences in maintaining a tarantula! It is an excellent idea to look into the roots, behaviors, and needs of those species that interests you before you buy it or begin decorating and filling a habitat.

As mentioned, some species come from harsh deserts, and these tarantulas are inclined to be ground-dwelling burrowers. Others live high in the rainforest canopies of Asia and South America. Obviously keeping a tropical tree spider in a dry setup without a vertical height for scaling would cause a stressed and short-lived animal. Tropical, tree-dwelling species could be held in taller encloses with slightly less floor space than previously advised. Likewise, deeper enclosures can be used for burrowing desert species. Given some time in their house, most tarantulas will begin to make their own hide-outs, some moving around cage furnishings. This is good, let them do it.

There should be an easy hiding structure or shelter such as a half-log or coconut hut, or maybe some bits of stone or driftwood. However you choose to do it, remember the fundamental idea of creating your tarantula feel secure in the home. Do not overdo the decorating, you should probably leave about 1/3 to 1/2 of the habitat floor bare and in the open for your tarantula to research.

The most difficult thing for most people is getting close enough to a tarantula for the first time to see them for what they truly are. Not scary beasts out to bite you, but instead, incredibly agile and interesting creatures. Tarantulas are delicate creatures, and when handling them be very careful that they do not fall, as they can be skittish and a short fall can injure them severely or even kill them.

It’s a fact that tarantulas aren’t the best choice as a pet that you will have the ability to handle very much, but this is largely because of stress and threat to the spider as opposed to danger to the handler. For the tarantula owner, the odds of being bitten by a tarantula are extremely rare and even if through carelessness a sting should occur, the venom when injected into a person usually causes only minor swelling, with some itching and tingling which disappears in a short time. If it occurs, wash the bite site with soap and water and protect against disease.

Although they are not the cuddly variety, tarantulas are fascinating creatures that may be wonderful, gentle pets. The trick to successfully owning any exotic animal is to know as much as you can about the species itself and the care of it.

Rude customers

Aggressive Aggressive Child Child Baby Boy

Rude customers will be part of any business, sooner or later. Luckily, there are ways to minimize the problems they might otherwise create for you. Here are three tips to help you cope well with customers who are rude:

Realize that rude clients generally are not upset with you

Sometimes, customers simply are having a bad day. Perhaps something earlier happened, which disappointed them. In other cases, they might be thinking about something bad from the remote past. You might ask these clients if you can help them in any way, and simply by drawing their attention to their behavior, find that the situation immediately improves.

Empathize with your customers

Sometimes, the reason your customers are being rude is because of flaw (real, perceived, or otherwise) with your product, service, or other portion of your business. In cases like this, you ought to do whatever you can to resolve the issue, or find someone who can help more. The last thing a client wants to hear is that”It’s not my duty,””Our policy is (insert weak excuse here),” or a similar statement. Clients (even rude ones) need resolution, or at the very least, to be treated with kindness and understanding of their situation. While you may not be able to directly improve the matter, you should under no circumstances make it worse. A little compassion can go a long way towards defusing the customer’s rudeness.

Recognize that some customers can not be pleased

For these customers, you may do everything possible, yet still be unable to satisfy them. In these instances, success may mean just barely keeping them from leaving, and so long as you understand this, you can save yourself many headaches. At other times, you will finally realize that certain clients are merely a bad fit for your business. When clients are routinely rude, abusive, attempt to benefit from your business, or violate standards of acceptable behavior, then you should probably bid them farewell, and ask them not to return. In the truest sense, these aren’t clients, but rather problems that are waiting to happen, and there is no reason for you to wait until tragedy strikes.

In summary, it is possible to cope better with rude customers by taking a step back from the situation, empathizing with their issues, and realizing that some clients can not be helped. When you use these suggestions, you will discover rude clients to be no more difficult to deal with than any other client.

Happiness

Free stock photo of landscape, nature, people, water

A lot has been written about happiness and from psychology to philosophy, different theories of happiness have concentrated on topics of satisfaction, contentment, as well as spiritual liberation. But happiness is one of the very subjective mental states and several factors could be at play when a person is really pleased. Whereas anger or anxiety could be defined with bodily reactions and certain behavioural patterns, this isn’t so for happiness and that’s the way happiness is extremely subjective. For example one bar of chocolate could make 1 child happy whereas another kid would want two chocolate bars to feel genuinely happy.

Happiness is generally associated with some kind of profit or attainment. When we reach or attain something, we feel satisfied and this causes happiness. The attainment doesn’t have to be material, it might very well be religious. It might even be physical and bodily, just as an insomniac person would feel happy after a good night’s sleep. So, in defining joy we must find a particular material, spiritual or physical gain or attainment and the contentment arising because of this attainment. The question would arise whether it is possible to be happy with no attainment. I would say that it is not possible to joyful without attaining something and this attainment doesn’t need to be immediate and may be related any past accomplishment. Now, you could say that you do know somebody who is always happy without any particular reason. It’s that you have not found out the reason for his happiness. He may be a simple man with simple needs and happy after a warm bath or a nice meal, so that’s still some attainment.

Psychologists have used several versions including bio psychosocial and PERMA models to describe happiness suggesting that happiness is attained when our biological, psychological and sociological needs are satisfied or when there’s pleasure (bodily for example ), engagement (in some activity for instance), relationships, meaning (for example purpose of life) and achievements. I would disagree and suggest that happiness being extremely subjective, some people may just be happy attaining pleasures whereas others would seek meaning or possibly relationships and accomplishments. So the level or kind of success which makes one happy would vary from 1 person to another.

Thus some people are happy when their basic needs are fulfilled whereas some others would not be happy even after significant professional achievements because they might be expecting another level or kind of accomplishment. Thus happiness largely depends on our subjective understanding of what it means to be happy. Since happiness is so subjective it cannot be strictly placed within models or frameworks although the underlying common factor that makes people happy is always some type of attainment, gain or need fulfilment.

The next level of analysis is if happiness could be categorized to generalized happiness or a continuing happy state of mind and particular happiness for attaining one of the specific pleasures or goals. I’d suggest that there cannot be a generalized state of happiness without a particular reason. A seemingly happy person might not be genuinely happy or might be genuinely happy because he might have attained an exalted spiritual condition or accumulated substantial wealth. So again as we see a continued state of happiness could also be explained with attainment.

The attainment could be social when we form relationships and feel happy or simply speak to strangers at a large event or remain engaged in social action, or the attainment could be religious when we seek and even find some type of spiritual liberation. The attainment or desire fulfilment could be psychological when our love needs are fulfilled or when we reach our targets or fulfil our ambitions. The biological, emotional, social and religious aspects of attainment could offer happiness according to their needs. Thus happiness is intricately tied to our specific needs although these needs could be interrelated as for example the need for status or power could be both social and psychological.

Thus we differentiate the variables that could lead to happiness

1. Biological (bodily delights, basic needs)

2.

3. Psychological (emotional, love, friendship, personal achievements )

4. Spiritual (finding meaning and purpose, transpersonal needs)

There might be several reactions to happiness and this might vary from grinning to engaging in rigorous physical activity as joy could mean a sudden surge in energy levels. People who engage in physical activity are more likely to be happy because of improved blood circulation and general good health. However happiness being a very subjective emotional state, in order to feel genuinely happy, some accomplishment in terms of long term goals such as love or conjugal life, wealth, spiritual liberation, or professional accomplishment could assist a person to attain a continued happy frame of mind. The people that have a protracted state of happiness are generally lively, sporty, fun loving and optimistic. A child may show a protracted state of happiness when adequate care and love are provided by their parents or carers.

From a more psychoanalytic viewpoint, happiness would be linked to desire, libido, our energy levels and even the defense mechanisms that we unconsciously use to vent out our frustration and so stay happy or calm. Happiness would naturally raise our libidinal levels and make us more energetic and high levels of energy could in turn make us happy, so this process is cyclical.

Contemplating defense mechanisms, psychoanalysis can in a way indicate that happiness is in fact acting out or reaction formation when we show certain reactions that could be completely opposite to what we believe. For example in response formation we might show happiness, when in fact we are sad or depressed. Although genuine happiness could be clarified with psychoanalysis as well, as for instance, an artist is really happy when he can sublimate his desires to socially acceptable forms of expression through his imagination. A sportsman is really happy when he can channel his sexual or aggressive desires through game or rigorous activity. So these defense mechanisms in psychoanalysis might actually create genuine happiness in people because of the inherent survival and coping strategies involved in these defenses.

Finally, happiness being a state of mind would be completely subjective and would evoke extreme subjective reactions. As an example, someone laughs hearing a joke and feel happy about it and somebody else would be sarcastic or may not feel the same degree of excitement. As I have stated on the psychology of emotions, it would be necessary to determine the components of feeling and bodily reaction for every emotion including psychology and happiness has an extensive research project to consider for the future.

Have you considered being a snowbird?

Old Age Pensioners Elder Life Style Howeve

Have you considered SNOWBIRDING?

Snowbirding has nothing to do with sour nor is it a winged monster.

Snowbirds are people (mainly retirees) from colder or northern regions who spend considerable time in warmer areas. It is a type of seasonal human migration.

Many snowbirds particularly retired folk are from northern and Midwestern US states or Canada and they fly south for the winter months.

Some bring their homes with them in the form of campers or RVs (recreational vehicles).

Quite a couple of RV parks are so-called’snowbird’ friendly. In fact, they rely on seasonal retired people for a big part of their earnings. It is believed that snowbirds, because of the length of their stay, bring more dollars to the local hospitality and service industry than regular tourists.

Believe or not, there are sites devoted to snowbirds from around the world.

There are some locals however, who do not welcome snowbirding retirees with such open arms.

A substantial number are business owners with the money and flexibility to invest a couple of months away from home.

Some snowbirds own houses in the places they migrate to, renting them out whenever they aren’t living there. Others seek seasonal work. Popular summer jobs include retail and restaurant work particularly in places popular with tourists.

There are many benefits of snowbirding or spending your winter in the same place every year. You might have met a circle of friends or a normal eating joint and you can develop a routine.

Picking a destination for your snowbird holiday differs from picking any other holiday. You might want a place that’s closer to convenient stores and other conveniences. For a short-term vacation that this is less of a consideration. The accessibility of a fantastic hospital or church may also be a factor. Perhaps you belong to a golf club, or ballroom dancing association that has sister clubs in that area. Or perhaps it’s closer to a family member.

For those still in employment or working part time your company might even allow you to work out of the local branch office.

There are loads of alternatives for your snowbird stay. Do some research, test out some options and be sure to enjoy yourself! Oh. . .but don’t go on the beach with speedos. The locals don’t seem to like that much!

Before you move to a boat

Photo of Yachts Near the City

A lot of people have thought about dropping out of the rat race and retire to a live aboard boat so as to experience the simpler life and travel to exotic places. There are many benefits associated with this sort of lifestyle, and waking up in the morning to the smell of the salt atmosphere and friendly neighborhood tropical birds looking for their morning breakfast in your backyard are definitely in the top two! As soon as you’ve made the choice to live aboard a ship, then you will find several more choices that you want to decide on.

Which type of boat is it, a mono-hull or a catamaran? How much money are you prepared to invest in the ship and where will you dock it? There will be so much less space than what you’re used to at a house, and storage areas will come at a premium. Some ships have more space than others, and you will soon find that out when you begin attending boat shows around the country or world. How much comfort are you willing to give up for a life of adventure on the high seas?

Mono-hulls are normally what people think of when boating comes to mind, but they do have plenty of drawbacks. They’ve a deep keel in order to assist as ballast and to keep the boat upright, which is highly useful if you are out on the ocean! But due to this keel, there’ll also be a fantastic amount of rolling and rocking from side to side as waves hit the boat. If you aren’t utilized to this motion, you could very well wind up with a bad case of sea sickness that will spoil your cruise. Mono-hulls do often have more room onboard for storage and living however, because the form of the hull is extremely conducive to that in relation to depth. You will immediately realize though, that the width or beam leaves much to be desired and can be thinner with regard to the complete length.

In my view the hull of selection is the catamaran, which is a considerably wider or beamy vessel, and some of the bigger boats are so stable in rough weather that a champagne glass sitting on the galley table won’t tip or fall over! By way of example, the normal 50 foot mono-hull might have a 12 -16 foot beam, but a 50 foot catamaran might have a 26 – 30 foot beam! This really results in stability in very rough seas, with a enormous reduction in the side to side rolling of the mono-hulls. A catamaran has two hulls with an open space between them for the seas to pass through and usually the galley and living room sitting out of the water between the hulls. This contributes to good visibility over the water, and a nice wide area for eating, cooking, and entertaining yourself and guests. Some versions will have the galley located down in one of the two hulls to create even more living space above. The sleeping areas, cabins, and heads are located down in the hulls on either side of the ship, and depending on the size can normally accommodate up to 4 couples.

The biggest drawback I have personally seen with catamaran boats is the”turnaround room” when standing down in the hulls. I do an”elbow evaluation” when down in the hulls, which means that I am standing with my hands on my buttocks and my elbows out and then I stand in one spot and turn around in a circle. If my elbows touch or knock anything, it’s a really cramped space! Unfortunately, the majority of the vessels I’ve tested had this drawback, but I did find one 52 foot South African ship that passed this test. In actuality, there was so much living area and storage space on this boat that I call it a”condo catamaran”! It was pure luxury, with around six cottages on a usual layout, or for the owner they could have one entire hull just for them which is described as the”owner’s layout”. This is the design that really appealed to me, and will offer much cupboard space and a very private living area for those long voyages with guests. I encourage everyone who is looking for the perfect vessel to go to as many boat shows as they could so they could personally check all the many factors involved and to see if it is something you can live on.

Another factor or decision that you’ll need to make is whether it is going to be power or sail. For those people thinking about doing an around the world trip, they might seriously consider purchasing a sailboat as it is going to be much cheaper and there actually are not as many boats that could carry enough fuel for all those trans oceanic voyages. For all those people planning to stay closer to shore or mainly coastal travel might look for power boats, despite the fact that the fuel will still be an issue for most trips. There are a few boats that have been intended for long range expedition voyages which are less than 55 feet long, and they are able to carry enough fuel to transit the Pacific or some other extensive cruise. However, for a power boat of the size, be prepared to pay close to a thousand U.S. dollars or more for a brand new boat. By far the great majority of around the world cruisers will decide on a sailing boat, either catamaran or mono-hull. Catamarans tend to be more expensive due to the size and desirability of them, and they also may have higher marina fees associated because of their widths. In fact, a good proportion of them may not fit in some marinas because of how wide they are, and will have to anchor out in the harbor and use a dinghy to travel back and forth to the shore. This can be very time consuming and tiring, especially when travelling back and forth with many packages of food, drinks, or other things needed to restock the boat. These are the types of things you’ll need to consider before you decide on and purchase your live aboard boat.

Are you an experienced sailor or boater, or will you will need to arrange for some classes to learn more about being on the water? There are plenty of Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron centers around in the U.S. that can offer the appropriate training needed to safely operate your new vessel. It’s very important to feel comfortable with the performance of your boat, and take it abroad for short excursions as frequently as you can before you embark on any long cruise away from shore. Become a specialist, after all, your life will be at stake! Be prepared for any circumstance, whether it’s medical or mechanical, and know what to do to fix it. Take a marine mechanic training course, because if your ships engine breaks down far out at sea you will want to know what to do to fix the issue. You won’t be able to just bring the boat into the nearest shop at there!

There will be many decisions that you are going to need to make before choosing and buying your new boat and probably training you’ll need in order to safely manage it, but the benefits of this lifestyle more than outweigh the negatives. You will have to be prepared for a entire changeover compared to living ashore, due to the cramped conditions and inconveniences associated with boat living. Choose wisely, learn all you can before you buy, and prepare for the time of your life!

Should you marry your best friend?

Free stock photo of fashion, man, couple, love

Marrying your very best friend is in fact the best option, because enough spiritual attachments would have formed via non-sexual interaction and action with the best friend before sex is introduced.

After a few years of being friends with somebody and having grown closer to this individual to the extent of having become best friends for quite some time, even many years or decades, many a person suddenly realized they are in love with this best friend. In most cases when a person has feelings for another, the feeling or feelings are mutual; otherwise those feelings won’t be there.

By the time these two have sex, whether premarital or just after getting married having successfully abstained, enough spiritual attachments shaped that combined the two souls on the right levels in the right elements and sequence. This way results in the attachments to form the right way before sex as was intended for the majority of humans with souls, other than spiritual attachments having formed only on the sexual level due to sex that was introduces too premature.

In many cases best friends of the opposite or even same sex, also make commitments toward one another, not realizing or understanding what happens in the spirit world in doing this, which leads and is to the benefit of a successful life-partnership. If enough time was spent collectively interacting in a nonsexual manner, where the perfect feelings have formed, developed and grown to full capacity, the attachments would form strongly and protected properly with equal and balanced emotions and capabilities that would last a lifetime when commitments are made or vows are taken.

Falling in love with one’s best friend is great, since the soul is loved and not the body or just the body, face, good looks, sex or sexiness, particularly if the person is sexy. People should fall in love with another’s traits, character, contributing conducts and abilities, etc., yet when folks begin having”butterflies” around a particular individual, they immediately want to share themselves, their spirits or the whole package and pleasure of sexual activity with that person. When sex is shared in this early stage it destroys the opportunity of growing love on a high level that would be in existence for lifetime and beyond. Having attached the perfect way through the right behavior is permanently beneficial to souls, as love is taken with to the afterlife, only for being truly loved or having loved another truly, that is absolutely not true with sex!

Sex can not cause souls to join or unite (form religious attachments) on another level, other than the sexual level, such as the”Love degree” or the”Mental/Intellectual degree” or some of the other potential levels where spirits could attach to form a unification.

To protect one’s own soul it’s ideal to have monogamous sex with just 1 partner throughout life, which would cause one’s soul to be and stay clean from religious contamination to wind up in the right place in the afterlife and to have the safety of true love, but more importantly to enjoy one’s life while in a life-partnership.
