Making Summer Friendships Last

Making Summer Friendships Last - Summertime isn’t just about getting dirty, staying up all night, playing in the rain, and going off to camp--It’s about meeting new people. Follow these tips to turn your vacation acquaintances into lifelong friends. 

1. Summer Memory Book 

Make the summer last forever by preserving memories in a special book. Fill the plastic sleeves of a photo album with photos, ticket stubs, sections of road maps from summer trips, and other mementos. When you’re finished, exchange memory books with your closest summer buddy. 

2. Picture Postcards 

Keep in touch with vacation friends by sending picture postcards. Scan summer photos and print them on cardstock paper, 4 per page. Use scissors to cut individual cards. On the blank side, include your friend’s address, your return address, and a postage stamp. Don’t forget to write a cool message! 

3. Pen Pal Club 

Start your own pen pal club! Swap addresses with your new friends and make a commitment to keep in touch. Be creative— don’t limit yourself to writing letters. Send an inexpensive gag gift every so often, or an audiotape letter. Send lists of your favorite things. For instance, one month send your pen pals a list of your 20 favorite movies, and then compare your lists. 

No matter how you decide to keep in touch, don’t let summer friendships end when summer ends.

The training and work ethic requires only the best of the best

Spy

Spies are one of the most popular characters in movies. One of the most famous spies we know of is James Bond, whom we all love to watch. While being a spy is more of a fantasy than a real life job, there are many all around us covertly working for the FBI or CIA. Working as a real life spy is one of the most challenging and intense careers.

The training and work ethic requires only the best of the best. 

Working for one of those organizations is about as close as it gets to being a spy. You’re not going to be a flashy, save the girl and save the world type while saving the world in point five seconds before it is destroyed. You will complete missions around the world and may have a large impact in world events. Being a spy is one of the most influential careers out there, as your spy surveillance will help the world leader make some of the most difficult decisions they will face day to day. 

While you may not get the laser watches and missile launching cars that you see all of the time in the Bond or other spy movies, the surveillance products are high tech. Much of the equipment in these movies is available in real life such as listening devices like bugs or hidden cameras to record the evidence that our justice system requires.

If you’re looking for a way to conserve electricity, renewable energy may be the answer


If you’re looking for a way to conserve electricity, renewable energy may be the answer. Renewable, or solar energy, uses the sun’s light, along with wind and even certain molecules in plants and animals in order to power cars, turn on lights, and keep appliances working.
 
 
Heat is produced whenever the sun touches something, and solar energy can be used to power almost anything. Natural gas, oil, and coal are all byproducts of solar energy, since the plants and animals used to create these natural resources receive their energy from the sun. However, since coal, oil, and gas are resources that can be depleted from the earth, they should be conserved as much as possible, which is why scientists and environmentalists are conducing progressive research on ways to use renewable energy in every day life. This way, solar energy can be used more often. 


Powering everything with solar energy isn’t possible just yet, since a way to capture enough sunlight to power everything in a home or business hasn’t been discovered. So, many people use solar panels, which can be placed on a side of a roof to attract sunlight during the day that can be used to heat rooms and water. Solar panels can be purchased at a number of retail stores now, as well as online. Panels do a great job of helping families and businesses to conserve energy. Hopefully, solar panels will become a part of daily life, in order to prevent the disappearance of natural resources and to maintain energy conservation.

This is a small example of the "pajama solutions" now available to ensure you sleep in comfort

pajama solutions

If you haven't shopped for pajamas in a while you will be surprised at the choice available out there. Gone are the days where you would only have one pair of pajamas, in cotton, with a collar and turn-ups. 

In recent years pajama ranges have exploded in all sorts of ways to give you more sleeping comfort through ever-newer fabrics and cuts. 

The savvy consumer can get comfort and restful sleep throughout the year, in any climate or temperature by choosing different pajamas that are available and using them in different seasons. 

Most people readily buy special jackets for very cold or hot weather, but are unaware that the same advances are available for nightwear. 

Cold Weather/ Winter Pajamas 

One of the most useful advances in pajama design in recent years in the use of very warm fabrics for extreme cold weather. 

Full fleece or double fleece pajamas give you extra warmth along with comfort in very low temperatures - great for family visits to the log cabin up north. And these brands can come with footed pants or even hoods 

Less extremely warm pajamas are also made in other fabrics such as thick cotton. These keep you warm without your having to be in artic conditions like the double fleece pajama and they are suitable as comfortable winter sleep wear for the home. 

Footed pajamas might not be the sexiest looking pants in the world, but they are great for sleeping comfortably. And they are the complete solution to the "cold feet and ankles syndrome" at night. 

Summer Pajamas 

For summer and hotter climates, silk PJs are no longer just for the rich and glamorous. 

Silk is possibly the world’s best-loved cooling fabric, treasured in hot countries around the world from Italy to Japan. Certainly you should consider trying silk pajamas. 

You don’t have to be rich and idle to sleep in silk and nowadays quality silk pajamas won’t cost you a fortune either. 

But be warned: some people find silk pajamas almost too comfortable and relaxing. 

Bernard Hopkins is the boxer who recently said: "Its hard to get up at 5am (to train) when you wear silk pajamas". Lets hope his PJs don’t damage his career. 

Specialty Pajamas 

There are loads of specialty pajamas being released all the time, especially for kids who have everything from Disney characters, to Barbie and Shrek. There are even flame resistant pajamas that appear in some children's lines! 

There are some great specialty makes for adults too. 

A good example is the new menopause pajamas recently created to serve the needs of newly menopausal women dealing with hot flashes. The special PJs work by "wicking" away moisture in the way that running clothes do. 

So that's it. This is a small example of the "pajama solutions" now available to ensure you sleep in comfort.

And here’s what I’ve done. And you can do too

And here’s what I’ve done. And you can do too

Have you ever spoken at an event and they won’t allow you to give your details? Have you gone on the radio and they forget to announce where you can be contacted? 

If your contact details are left out or if you’re prevented from giving information, you’ll need to play the game a little smarter. 

Understand that most reporters/radio announcers/organisers are quite accomodating. They understand that you’re giving your valuable time in exchange for the publicity. But often enough you’ll run into someone who’s power drunk or whose organisation just won’t budge. 

And here’s what I’ve done. And you can do too. 

Refer to your product or service many times in the speech. Give an example and say how that particular example coincides with the example on Page 34 or Page 65. Or in the third CD of your 20 CD Workshop. Or the FREE Report you gave at the last event. As long as you’re making perfect sense, you will not be stopped or reprimanded. Your speech will meet the host’s guidelines, yet all the time you’re leaking out information. 

By the end of the speech, you should have created enough leaks for the audience to be extremely curious. They’ll want to know about Page 34. They’ll want to know about the FREE Headline Report you gave at the last event. 

As your fame grows, you may not need to do any of the above. If the organisation doesn’t allow you to give your contact details you can refuse to do the interview/speech. However when you’re starting out, you may crave the additional publicity and that’s okay. 

Be sure of one thing. Don’t let your speech be random. Create leaks and watch how the audience swarms around you after the event!
