My opinions on the KastKing Mako spinning reel

Alongside the rod, the reel is the piece of equipment of the utmost importance for an angler and one you should be carefully choosing when you feel like your tackling gear needs an update. My latest attempt to renew my fishing arsenal was to procure a solid and well-matched spinning rod and reel for tackling bass. I believe I’ve done a pretty nice job when I chose a graphite, 7 feet, medium-heavy power, fast action rod and I’m confident I’ll be using it for many other fishing conditions than the one mentioned.

Reels are a different category of equipment. Personally, I’ve always had tough luck with choosing a suitable one, and rarely was I able to find a reel that I felt confident in. Anyway, searching online, I’ve run into a new model of 36 inch from KingCast that caught my eye. What I first noticed at it was the slightly oversized spool, that gave me the impression that it didn’t fit so well with rest of the body, but I will talk about the advantages coming with this feature right away. I’ve decided to purchase this for two reasons: one, it was a KingCast, a brand that is renowned for its high-quality products and, two, it really seemed like the perfect match for my new Shimano rod.

Firstly, let me clarify what is the role of the large spool and how it helps. Its big size actually increases the stability of the string coiled on it. As such, you won’t be dealing with twisted or tangled line.  This feature worked like a charm until now. In addition to that, you’ll notice the motor brushes with which the reel is fitted, apparently, they also play a part in keeping your line nicely wrapped on the spool and they help avoid loops and snarls. Of course, the most essential feature of a reel is its gear ratio. This one comes with a 5:1:1 retrieve capability, but even so, it provides a good speed for its size and it ensures a smooth retrieval, due to its 8+1 stainless steel ball bearings, I have nothing to argue about that. The drag system can withstand a maximum of 22 lbs, which I find quite satisfying considering the purpose for which I have chosen it. If you’re looking for a more powerful item from this manufacturer, I’ve gathered that their Sharky model is quite fast and also lighter than this one, but you may want to pair it with a more powerful rod. Going back to my purchase, the Mako 3500 is a bit heavier, as it is mainly built with aluminum. However, there is nothing flimsy about its construction and all the elements seem to be solidly fastened together, while its composing materials also make it quite reliable not only for freshwater, but for saltwater too. More details about this model can be found if you read the best bass fishing gear reviews.

The reel has a reversible CNC handle and an anti-slip knob, so you won’t lose control over it even if it gets soaked in water, which can come in handy considering how much bass likes to splash around. All in all, I believe my new reel will be helping me land a few of them on my next trip guaranteed.


A short guide for your African adventure


Africa can be the land of your dreams or the worst of your nightmares. Though we’re not pioneer explorers from the Middle Ages going into unmapped territory anymore, Africa is not less dangerous now, than it was 500 years ago for merchants and travellers. Surely, modern technology, such as trusty SUV’s and internet are making things a whole lot easier for us, but they can also become our enemies if we recklessly make use of them, or, in the case of the internet, we do not check the sources of our information. Because I’m a veteran traveler, I would like to offer safari amateurs and novice travellers a short guide for their first trip to Africa, from what I’ve learnt the hard way.

  1. If you’re a first time camper in Africa, trace a detailed route of your trip and stick to the organized camps for which you have previously gathered thorough information. There are many camps you can choose from throughout the African continent and you shouldn’t worry about facilities: most of them are equipped with toilets and showers. It is true, they are not always clean and water can be cold, but you will rarely find a camp lacking basic facilities.
  2. Have your car checked up properly before you leave, to ensure it won’t break along the road.
  3. Buy the best truck tent. In the wilderness and in any kind of emergency, an SUV tent is your safest option.

Why is that? Firstly, because they are near your car. Most SUV tents are attached to your vehicle with a solid strap, and you can go into the safety space provided by your car (more than your tent anyway) without going outside. Secondly, SUV tents are built to provide plenty of space, they can accommodate 6 or 7 people, so they are also an economic solution for a safari. Thirdly, most models designed for SUVs can be modified and set up as a standalone tent, so you have both options included. I’ve been using an SUV tent for a long time now and I’ve always felt safer and more comfortable sleeping in one.

  1. However, take all the necessary information before you acquire an SUV tent, and don’t forget to check if the desired model is adapted for an African safari.
  2. Keep your camping equipment clean. Dirt is a road companion you get used to when camping through Africa, but that doesn’t mean it should occupy more space than you do inside your tent. Every time you pack your gear, clean it properly and check for any cracks and holes in your tent’s canvas. Though this may seem like incredibly boring, especially since it will take you a lifetime to pack and unpack your gear in the first days of your trip, it is an absolute necessity to do it daily.
  3. If you have the necessary funds, pamper yourself a bit. In a long journey, you’ll need to rest at least a day. For that, visit one of the luxury tent camps that you can find along the way.


A great relaxation method: a foot spa


Photo credits: Healing foot spa

After a long day at work or after a holiday spent with friends, there is no other thing that can help you relieve stress better than a massage. Unfortunately, going to a saloon isn’t always at hand. First of all, local spas can be costly and may require a prior reservation. Also, going to a foot spa implies leaving the comfort of your house, which may not sound appealing when your greatest wish is to lie on your couch and never get up again. Luckily, there is an alternative that will offer you the same benefits with less effort.

A foot spa machine is a product that will help you feel relaxed and refreshed at the touch of one button that you can seldom activate with your toes. Some models include not only massage devices, but also pedicure sets and attachments that will help you keep your toenails looking lovely without having to visit a pedicurist and pay extra cash.

Moreover, manufacturers have worked a lot to improve your foot bath experience. The comfort level can be assured by features such as waterfall massage and by the different bubble levels that can be set according to your preference. Foot spas are more cost effective than going to a spa center, but perhaps their most cherished feature is that they allow you to take full advantage of their benefits in the comfort of your own home. In addition, foot spa machines are fitted for all ages; their effects have been associated with general reduction of stiffness and soreness in the body and overall wellbeing improvement. Also, they are efficient in treating incipient cold symptoms, by increasing the body’s temperature and stimulating metabolism. Regular users have also reports it also helps alleviate cramps and local pain, providing you with instant comfort just by immersing your feet in a tub with hot water.

Local spas may offer specialized therapies, but, a foot spa is an indispensable device in any household if you love spa treatments, but can’t always afford them. It is safe to use and it is built to last for a long period of time.

Modern society has brought many advances to our lives, however it has also changed our lifestyle to a great extent. Our work has become more intellectual and less physical, constantly demanding that we stay put or stand in a certain spot for long periods of time. This may entail unhealthy consequences, both mentally and physically, and, on the long term may decrease the general level of our happiness. That is why having such a device at your disposal is the fastest way through which you can restore your health and fortify your spirits. There is no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy the benefits of a fine foot massage anytime you want in the comfort of your apartment, at the cost of a single purchase. Foot spas have been evaluated by the majority of users as an improvement to their lives and a most valuable device in any home.


How to read your fish finder’s screen

A fish finder is a useful device to have for divers, anglers, fisherman and all those people out there who love fishing. The popularity of the fish finder is increasing each day and many consider it as a very useful fishing gear to own. Before you go out to buy a fish finder, it is better to do some research and then invest your money on a product that is useful for you.

Once you are done with choosing your best fish finder and have purchased one, the most complicated process is to figure out how to read your fish finder’s screen. It is very important for you to understand it completely before you go for fishing. Here, we focus on a few tips which help you with reading your fish finder screen.

Before you start figuring out how to read your fishfinder, you need to understand the logic behind how a fish finder works. The transducer or the bottom part of the fish finder that is submerged in the water emits sonar waves. These waves bounce around and finally return to the transducer. The transducer then reads this information and gets details like distance, speed and rate at which the waves have returned. It is the job of the transducer to convert this data into visual data in the form of arches and thick colored lines.

The first step in the learning process is to understand the direction of reading. The sonar reflection is displayed from right to left on your LED screen. The latest reading is displayed on the right side of the screen and the oldest reading is at the extreme left. If your boat is moving, then the right side of the screen displays what is present exactly below the transducer and the left side displays whatever you have passed already. If your boat is stationary or stable, then the image is also quite stable.

The next step is to read the depth of the water and the temperature. These parameters are displayed on the upper left side of your LED screen. The depth is displayed at the top left and the temperature is displayed just below the depth. When your boat is moving, the fish finder will show a green layer; it means beneath the surface, there is a soft bottom. If the screen is showing only red color thick lines, then it means there is a hard surface beneath your current position. If your screen is showing green lines along with red colored lines then it indicates a structure beneath the water and close to the bottom. If your screen is showing arches over this structure, then it means there are lots of fish in this area.

The screen sometimes shows you images of tree like objects. This indicates that beneath the surface there are lots of trees or weeds. If you are seeing tiny dots spread through the purple layer, it indicates small fishes are present. It can also mean that large fishes are near to the area.

Most of the images displayed in your fish finder will be hard for you to identify and understand in the beginning, but once you start using the fishfinder regularly, you can easily comprehend each and every indication or symbol and enjoy your day fishing in water with a lot of catch.

My “review” of the Zoeller M53 Mighty-mate Submersible Sump Pump

Right after buying our new home, I started talking to the neighbors and quickly enough, I came to the conclusion that I had to purchase a sump pump. There wasn’t any installed in the basement, but since I’ve heard that people in the area had had issues with their basement getting flooded in spring, I decided to avoid wasting any money on repairs and get a sump pump instead.

During my research, I referred to a lot of websites and videos on YouTube about the best sump pumps out there. I needed something rather basic that I could install myself or with a friend that had a bit more knowledge on the matter than I. I wasn’t prepared to spend more than two hundred dollars on a model, but I needed something that was worth every penny and that would last for a decent amount of time. In my book, that means at least ten years.

Eventually, after going through many ratings, reviews, and many websites destined for giving a hand to prospective buyers, I decided on the Zoeller M53. What I found useful in this model was the housing made of cast iron, which virtually eliminated any chance of the motor engine being overheated. Another thing that I was impressed with was the fact that the Zoeller M53 had a vortex impeller instead of a typical inlet screen. In other words, small-sized solids would have been able to flow through this sump pump.

Installation wasn’t particularly difficult as I had the assistance of my buddy. We had all the male adapters, discharge pipes, and a check valve, that were all necessary to complete the setup. We tested the model in order to make sure that there weren’t any leaks, and then all I had to do was wait for a new flooding to see whether the Zoeller M53 lived up to its claims. It came quickly enough, and that’s when I realized that the major advantage of this model was the fact that it was fully automatic and as such, it would start pumping at night or at any moment when we weren’t at home. Since the ⅓ HP motor does its job wonderfully, we’ve had no trouble with the pump ever since we’ve installed it as most of the info I came across said that it was able to discharge as many as 43 gallons per minute. Even though I hardly think that the pump ever reached its maximum capacity, the fact of the matter remains that it’s able to do its job without needing the assistance of me or my wife’s. From what I’ve gathered, the pump automatically starts doing its thing once the water depth is around 7”. If the water level drops to 3”, the pump will shut itself off.

In the end, the Zoeller M53 is the best choice for me and my family as it lets us get a good night sleep because we know that it will last for many years and protect us from any basement flooding.

If this model is not cool enough for you, there is a new one from the same brand- M57.



The best thing I love about making quesadillas is that it is  loved by everyone: beef lovers, meat lovers. So right now I will share a recipe with my readers to help them make beef quesadillas. I can guarantee that kids and teens in your home, will love this lip smacking snack.


  • 750g lean beef (minced)
  • 4 spring onions (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 green chili (finely chopped without seeds)
  • ¼ cup of chopped fresh parsley or coriander
  • 100g cheese (grated)
  • 100g mozzarella cheese (grated)
  • 8 flour tortillas

How to make beef quesadillas:

To start making beef quesadillas, you need to heat a deep frying pan. It is best if you use a non-stick pan for convenience. Heat a tablespoon of oil and add the minced beef till it cooks to brown color. Make sure that you finely mash the beef using the back of a spoon in the process. You can divide the beef in 2-3 batches so that it will be easier for you.

Once the beef is nicely brown, add other ingredients such as spring onions, and chili. Mix all the added ingredients to the beef, cover and allow it to simmer for about 10-12 minutes. Stir to avoid overcooking.

Remove everything from heat and add finely cut parsley or coriander. With the use of a slotted spoon, transfer the mixture on a large bowl while draining any excess fat. Set it aside and let it cool. Once cooled, you can add cheese and mix everything softly.

For the tortilla, you can either use a frying pan or preheat a sandwich press. Put the tortilla on the base plate and spread about ½ of the mixture that you have made earlier over ½ of the tortilla. Add some grated cheese on top of the mixture again, and fold it over to close the filling.

Cook and wait for 3-4 minutes. Sometimes, it may take a little longer or shorter, depending upon the time in which the Quesadillas become hot and crispy. Repeat the same procedure with remaining tortillas.

Quesadillas are best served if you cut it into wedges and add some guacamole or sour cream.


They are – you used the plural quesadillas, so the verb and pronoun should also have a plural form

Is Greek Yogurt Really Better than Regular Yogurt?


Greek yogurt has quite a reputation among those who prefer eating yogurt on a regular basis. Because it is well strained, liquid whey and lactose are almost completely removed from Greek yogurt, and the smooth texture of this creamy variety of yogurt is greatly appreciated. Compared to regular yogurt, Greek yogurt offers enhanced health benefits, as you will see below.

More protein for the same amount

Protein is essential for healthy development, and it is also a key nutrient for weight loss. If you make protein part of your diet in greater quantities, while reducing fat, sugar and carbs, you will see results quite fast. A single serving of Greek yogurt, which is about 6 ounces, offers up to 15-20 grams of protein, while the same quantity of regular yogurt offers just 9 grams of protein.


Less sodium

It is well known that Greek yogurt is a recommended food for those who have troubles with hypertension. Sodium is responsible for aggravating hypertension, which is why a diet low in sodium is highly advised in the case of people suffering from this condition. Greek yogurt has just half of the sodium present in regular yogurt, so you can still enjoy the great taste of this food without suffering nasty consequences for your health.

If you want to make sure that your Greek yogurt is as healthy as it can be, I highly recommend trying to make some at home. I recently got a Greek yogurt maker and I am more than pleased with the results. When I searched for a good unit, I found an excellent site that supplied me with the needed information, so I could get what I was searching for.

Low in carbs

Carbs are considered one of the main enemies of weight loss supporters, so it is great news that Greek yogurt is really low in carbs. You get just 5-8 grams of carbs per a single serving of Greek yogurt, so you can rest assured that you will be able to follow your low carb diet with great success.


A clever substitute for fat

Do you love desserts, but the added fat from butter and the like make you give up on them? Just replace these fats with Greek yogurt and you will obtain some delicious desserts that will melt in your mouth, without adding unnecessary calories. Many people bake and cook with Greek yogurt for this reason, and the results are really outstanding.


I Always Take My Trusty Weather Radio with Me

Climate change happens due to a lot of factors and one of them is human activities. It is as if Mother Nature is seeking its vengeance with the human race that did harm to her. It is a good thing that people with brilliant minds are able to invent tools that give the people necessary information regarding the weather if it is just normal or life threatening like tornadoes, storms, tsunamis or hurricanes.

It is always helpful to have something that would inform us if such type of weather occurs so that we are able to know what to do.  Calamities like tornadoes, hurricanes or hail storms have taken a lot of lives and we want to be wise by being abreast of what’s happening outside. A device that is known to be quite useful in such situations is the weather radio. The good thing about this device is that there is a constant airing of weather reports, especially in those areas that are on a hot seat for tornadoes, hurricanes or storms.

Many movies are made where the after effects of some natural calamities like tornadoes are averted and the weather radio has played a very important role. It informs us what type of calamity is heading its way and where to take shelter to be safe. The devastation can be minimized by saving human lives and a top weather radio is definitely a hero in such calamities.

There are so many weather radios sold, both online and in retail stores. So owning such a useful and lifesaving device is a must in every home. Most of the weather radios have a battery backup, especially at this time when electricity always goes out. You will still be able to use the weather radio and save you and your family from some grave tragedy. This may just be a small box, but it plays an important role in saving a life.

I’m Sure My Daughter Is Safe in Her New Car Seat

Being a new mother, it is always my priority to ensure my daughter’s safety, especially when my husband is not around, since he travels a lot due to his sales job. I am always on my toes since I have to take care of my fashion boutique as a professional, and as a mom, I have to look after children at the same time. I always worry about seating my 1 year old baby in the car when I have to go out to my store or to the nearest grocery store for urgent shopping.

Though I have a baby seat in my car, but I want a better safety seat to make sure that she stays safe and protected while I drive.  I saw a friend of mine, using a convertible baby seat for her son. So, I decided to get a similar seat for my baby as I was very impressed by the way her son loves to sit in it. It was a little bit pricey, but I did get the value for my money. The most fabulous thing is that I use it as a car seat, as well as a stroller, since its matching stroller made my life a lot easier.

It is big and safe enough for my daughter and since it is convertible, it can be attached to the rear or the front seat of the car. For me the rear seat is the safest position since the impact of any accident or sudden brakes will be least for the tiny body of my baby. Getting this safe car seat was not enough, I had to spend a good amount of time to read its manual and understand its installation details to make it a safe place in the car, for my daughter.

Last month horrific news of a severe accident involving a mother and her baby, made me highly vigilant to ensure that the safety seat fits properly on the rear seat of my car.  Thanks to this great attachment, that now, I am able to bring my daughter along to my boutique or shopping mall, without any worry about her safety while driving.

I Will Put My New Punching Bag to the Test

Yesterday I received my much awaited exercise gear- the punching bag, which looked very promising in achieving my goal of burning my accumulated tiers to give way to fabulously flat abs. This new addition to my already existing fitness tools, was placed in the lobby of my tiny studio apartment. With a resolution to start at the earliest, I decided to get some guidance.

These are the points I gathered and I want to share with you in case you too share my idea of fitness with a heavy bag.

First a word of caution

  • Hang the punching bag at an accurate height to match your stature.
  • Do not start this type of fitness training on your own. Although the compact size and harmless look of the punching bag will inspire you to go ahead, remember you must have a trainer who will analyze your physical fitness and guide you through this challenge.
  • Only a trainer can help you with suitable strike and kick movements, to match your body type and stamina. If you don’t take this advice, then you may invite irreparable damage.


Points to ponder

  • Balancing your feet is the most crucial thing. Physics has the explanation for this. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. When you punch the bag you are provoking the bag to react. If you are not firmly planted on the ground, the reaction from your punching bag may sweep you off your feet.
  • You have to punch the bag not push it. Consider the bag your worst enemy, don’t push him off the building, but punch him in the face to teach him a lesson.
  • You have to decide a spot on the bag and punch it hard for maximum benefit. It involves a bit of staring too.
  • Shower a volley of punches about 20 in one go, on the bag while holding a balanced stance. After this you can move around the bag, select a new position and start again. Each such round should last 20-30 seconds.
  • Practice daily and religiously.


This is what I have learned till now. Tomorrow I will start with my trainer. So catch you later.

I Believe that Radar Detectors Are a Necessity

We all know more than the adrenaline rush it gives, speeding is not the need but it’s a compulsion. Yes, it is a dangerous habit of those people who leave their place at the nick of a moment and then put their feet on race to be on time. For these compulsive over-speeders who are also afraid of collecting speeding tickets, certain illegal gadgets are available. They resort to use of illegal radar detectors to lower down car speed at the right moment, if they are being monitored by the traffic cops, when they are about to approach a hidden patrol vehicle.

If a radar detector prevents a ticket, you must not be so happy about this achievement. Rather, this is quite a risky business. You are actually putting the lives of your co-drivers in grave danger. Just to save a few bucks of fine, you should not use such illegal devices. It would be far better if you start a bit early for your destination and keep the speed of your vehicle within the limits.

In my opinion using this gadget should be punishable. It doesn’t matter if you are in speed limit in the eyes of cops, what matters is that you are actually exposing so many people to danger of highway pileups, with your reckless driving.

Just turning to the other side of this issue, if radar detectors are made legal in some states where speeding tickets are quite large in count, it will reduce a lot of hassles at the traffic control office to collect the fine money. It can also prevent corruption in the system.

Another advantage is that the cops can be deployed in other region, instead of making them wait in hidden locations, for the over speeding vehicles. Instead of such maneuvers, the radar detectors should be integrated with the accelerator system so that if a driver over speeds, the radar detector should pass information about the region’s speed limit to the accelerator system and reduce the speed of a moving vehicle. Such detectors should be able to sense an approaching vehicle like an ambulance or any vehicle for that matter and reduce the speed automatically.

If the car manufacturers introduce such innovations in their vehicles, we will have safer cars on the road and safety of human lives will be ensured. Above all, we should also read more articles on radar detectors to find out important aspects before purchasing one.


What to Look for in an Awesome 4 Slice Toaster


It is obvious that 4 slice toasters are gaining in popularity because they let you toast more slices of bread at the same time, without putting you to work. There are, still, differences between great toasters and awesome toasters, and they will be showed right away.


Here are some thoughts on this matter. No matter how much you love your toaster, you surely hate cleaning it, if it is tough to clean. Search for a model that comes with a removable crumb tray you can wash in your dishwasher. While a little bit of more cleaning will be required, if the model is made of materials that are easy to maintain like stainless steel on the exterior, you will not have to sweat over it.


The ultimate purpose of any toaster is, without a doubt, the ability to offer you consistent toasting each and every time. Nobody loves a toaster that burns the bread, makes it too dark or too light. Forget all about these problems, by getting a good quality unit that offers different levels of browning, so you can pick how you want your bread slices to be toasted.


Mornings can be pretty hectic, especially when you have an entire family waiting to be fed. A 4 slice toaster is a great thing, because it allows you to make more food without wasting any time. However, you should choose a model that can deliver perfect toast quickly, so you do not have to worriedly watch the clock while you are waiting for the food to be ready.

Thick or slim, tall or short, bread is bread. Get a 4 slice toaster capable of dealing with all varieties of bread, and your morning meals will be blissful.

What You Need to Drill Metal


Drilling metal is obviously not as easy as drilling wood or any other kind of softer material. Metal is the type of material that requires respect and it must be treated as it should, in order to avoid injuries and, of course, get the desired results. A few things are paramount for drilling metal, as you will see right away.


A variable speed drill press is the recommended tool for obtaining straight holes in metal. While there are quite a few models available right now, you should go for one with slower RPM rates because metal needs a bit of time to cool off, and higher RPMs can make it hot pretty fast. If time is not an issue for you, pick a drill press and set it on a slower RPM in order to get the desired results, with zero headaches.

Metal, as mentioned earlier, demands respect, and that counts a lot when it comes to safety. When you drill metal, plenty of metal chips, curls and bits will start flying around. Wear your safety glasses all the time, and make sure you have all the needed safety equipment on. This way, you will remain unscathed and still manage to drill metal like a pro( For more details on this subject, see this website)

Not all metals are created equal and some of them are harder to drill than others. For instance, stainless steel is known to be among the most difficult, and there may be situations that require you to drill through this kind of material. Make sure that you have plenty of drilling coolant at hand, and use it generously, so that the surface does not get hot. Professionals recommend pushing harder into the metal, once you start working, to maintain contact with the cooler surface while you see about your drilling task.


Why Electric Brooms Are Better than Other Vacuum Cleaners


Cordless electric brooms are quite convenient to use and many people love them, even preferring them to other types of vacuum cleaners.


Sweeping floors is not exactly a fun activity and this was probably the driving force behind the invention of vacuum cleaners. However, vacuuming can be a time consuming activity and you may not be always in the mood to get your canister model out of the closet and start cleaning the house. For all these times, an electric broom feels like a godsend, because it does everything a vacuum cleaner does, but much faster and easier.

When you use a vacuum cleaner, you need to plug it in a socket, and then watch out for the cable. If you need to move from room to room, the cable, again, stands in your way. Electric brooms pose no such problems, as they are cordless. Waltzing around the house, while doing the cleaning, is really possible, and another reason why these appliances are thought to be better than vacuum cleaners.

You can clean all kinds of surfaces with the help of a cordless electric broom. New models come equipped with all kinds of brushes that make cleaning a breeze. For instance, a special brush for cleaning pet hair will help you make your home spotlessly clean, and you will not have to worry about allergies, either.

Let’s not forget that there are many types of electric brooms. cordless electric brooms are very flexible and they help you reach places you would not normally reach. This means that with the help of such a cleaning device, you can really make sure that your home is properly cleaned and you will have nothing to worry about corners and other areas remaining full of dust.


Is Toast Good for Your Health?


Many people prefer toasted bread in the morning because it simply tastes much better than regular bread. However, next time you indulge in your favorite treat, have no guilt plague your mind: you are doing a great thing for your health. Here are some ways of how toasted bread helps you throughout the day and improves your overall well being.

A great source of energy

Breads, like any other carbs, are a great source of starch that is transformed by the body into energy. However, too much starch can cause your blood sugar levels to become hectic, which is never a good thing. If you toast your bread, however, you can forget all about such problems, since you will get the energy you need, minus the blood sugar havoc wrecking consequences.


It helps with your weight loss regimen

Toasted bread has a lower glycemic index than normal bread and it helps you lose weight by adding enough fiber to your diet. Basically, the good stuff in toasted bread is released slowly, and it helps you with digestion, too.


Very little fat

Toast is a great choice for breakfast because it successfully replaces other foods that have a much higher amount of fat in them. Just to give you an idea of what you are dealing with, a slice of bread weighing 28 grams has just one gram of fat.


Quick ideas for breakfast

Although breakfast is considered by many the most important meal of the day, this doesn’t mean that you should stuff yourself up with a lot of high calorie foods. Get a 2 slot toaster and make a quick breakfast from two slices of bread and some tasty and healthy bread spreads. This way, you will fill your stomach with healthy food that will keep you energetic and feeling great throughout the day.


Easy Tips to Catch More Fish Using a Fish Finder


Using electronics to improve your fishing is quite common today, due to the ever evolving technologies in this field. Getting a good fish finder is one thing, learning how to use it well is another. The following advice is focused on giving you the best start on using a fish finder so you can catch more fish.


Eliminate background clutter by adjusting sensitivity

A common advice offered by seasoned anglers is to start eliminating background clutter by adjusting the sensitivity on your fish finder. Make sure that you at least double the range for having better readings. For instance, if you sit over 20 feet of water, adjust your fish finder sensitivity at about 40-50 feet.


Fish in the higher layers of water

It is known among anglers that the fattest fish lies at the bottom, but these are usually spawning females, and only in the spring fish prefers sitting at the bottom layers. You will have more success if you prefer fishing in the higher layers of water.


Learning more about range

Most anglers’ obsession with fishing for bottom fish can be tricked by the readings of a fish finder. The main problem with fish finders is that they cannot really show you the bottom of the water you are fishing in, and fish may look like they are on the bottom when they are actually higher. You can induce a bit of movement in the area where fish are found, by launching a lure and seeing what happens.


Learn your fish finder

Your fish finder can offer you plenty of information, but you need to know how to read that information. Getting to know your unit better can help you more than simply going for a more expensive model that may be even more difficult to decipher.


Buying a RV GPS Really Comes in Handy

Have you ever tried going to a place where you’ve never been before and the map reference that you used to use is already outdated? My sister-in-law suddenly arrived without notifying and asked us to join them in their joy ride and before, it was a bit scary, especially when going through cross roads and the maps were so confusing, but gone are those days since we are already living in the 21st century where technology is always upgrading and innovating. Though not everybody can afford, but having a GPS in a car has already become a necessity!

Although I realized that my sister-in-law just wanted to brag her sleek designed RV that is highly impressive. Imagine of feeling at your house while you travel is very impressive. I thought, “man, I got to have one of these!”. Oh my goodness! A car with bed, bath and toilet inside and a whole lot of features. The most interesting for me as we travel is the GPS device that just gives you a lot of features like the travel guide and campground directory where we can check which is the best spot that we can park our RV for a while especially if we are moving around the city area. I love the fact that it also gives us information about the weather at the destination, where we are going to. We can also optimize the most efficient route where we can also avoid traffic with voice command too! It is simply amazing. And since the RV serves as your house with bath and toilet inside it, the GPS gives us the comprehensive directory for dumping sites so we can empty the black water and black holding tanks. There is also a free traffic alert available on the GPS. Now, you don’t have to worry about going somewhere, even if you haven’t gone to that place yet as long as you have a GPS enabled for RV.
