  9. Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
    Event on 2016-06-04 20:00:00

    Groundbreaking banjoist/composer/bandleader Bla Fleck has reconvened the original Bla Fleck & The Flecktones, the extraordinary initial line-up of his incredible combo. Rocket Science marks the first recording by the first fab four Flecktones in almost two decades, with pianist/harmonica player Howard Levy back in the fold alongside Fleck, bassist Victor Wooten, and percussionist/ Drumitarist Roy Futureman Wooten. Far from being a wistful trip back in time, the album sees the Grammy Award-winning quartet creating some of the most forward thinking music of their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances the result is an impossible to pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable. Simply put, it is The Flecktones, the music made only when these four individuals come together.All the different things I do come together to make a new hybrid Bla, Fleck says. Everybody else in the group is doing the same things, collaborating with different people, and pursuing a wide variety of ideas, so when we come together and put all of our separate soups into one big stockpot it turns into a very diverse concoction. Fleck first united the Flecktones in 1988, ostensibly for a single performance on PBS Lonesome Pine Special. From the start, there was a special kinship between the four musicians, a bond forged in a mutual passion for creativity and artistic advancement. Three breakthrough albums and a whole lot of live dates followed before Levy decided to move on in late 1992. I wanted to do other things and there was no time to do anything else, he explains. We were probably playing 150 shows a year at that time maybe more and it was just too much for me. Ive never, before or since, done any one thing that much! Bla Fleck & the Flecktones persevered, playing as a trio and with many special guests, before saxophonist Jeff Coffin joined the ensemble. A succession of acclaimed albums and innumerable live performances continued to earn the band a fervent fan following around the world, not to mention five Grammy Awards in a range of categories.Still, by 2008, the band had grown somewhat restive and embarked on a temporary hiatus. The seeds of change began with what Futureman calls the paintbrushes of fate as Coffin was invited to join Dave Matthews Band after the 2008 death of saxophonist LeRoi Moore. Fleck encouraged him to accept, believing the decision would rejuvenate both DMB and the Flecktones themselves. We were ready for something different to happen, he says. Wed been in a kind of holding pattern. We had the same line-up for so many years that it was becoming normal, we were all drifting into outside things for new musical invigoration, and we were taking more and more time off between albums and tours.Each member had been quite busy with a variety of successful projects including: Belas duet collaborations with Chick Corea, a trio with Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer (sometimes with the Detroit Symphony) and his expansive adventures in African music, documented in the acclaimed 2009 film and CD, Throw Down Your Heart. Victors solo band tours, camps, recording sessions, clinics and CD releases (including an incredible collaborative project with Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller called SMV, which yielded the album Thunder), and Future Mans creation of his amazing Black Mozart project, and continued developement of new instruments.Still, all agree that Flecktones music was beckoning them home. The band, which had always maintained a warm relationship with the gifted pianist/harmonica player, recruited Levy for a 2009 tour of the US and Europe, an experience he describes as extremely invigorating and very energizing. It felt just like it did back when we first started playing together, says Wooten. Just with a lot less hair. Upon the tours conclusion, the four musicians agreed to further explore the bands possibilities, sensing what Futureman calls, an opportunity to revisit the original scene of the crime. There were a lot of unfinished aspects to this line-up of the band, Fleck notes, in that it stopped right when we were peaking creatively. For Fleck, Levys return enables the Flecktones to follow through on the original concept of a band where each person was reinventing their instruments, where every one of us was a kind of mutant.Theres a special thing that happens when the four of us get together and play, notes Levy. We all have the same attitude of trying to do things that we havent done before and coincidentally, no one else has either. One thing was certain, however. The original Flecktones were resolute that their reunion would not be rooted in nostalgia. The goal from the get-go was to drive the music forward to places where it mightve progressed had things gone differently.I didnt want to just get together to play the old music, Fleck says. Thats not what the Flecktones are about. Everybodys full of life and ideas and creativity. I was intrigued by what we could do that we had never done before. Everybodys still advancing on their instruments, adds Futureman. Everyone has grown over these 18 years, so it was an opportunity to realize some of what we were trying to do in the beginning.In early 2010, Fleck and Levy first began working on new material, teaming up for collaborative writing sessions at Levys home in Evanston, Illinois. Fleck was determined to establish a more inclusive environment as far as composition, to give Levy a greater stake in the writing process. We hashed out a whole bunch of ideas together, Levy says. He would play things that he was working on, and I would go back into my memory banks and say, I have this incomplete fragment that might work well with the band, or we would just improvise things together. It was inspiring, I think, for both of us.Their compositional collaboration resulted in a remarkable suite comprised of Joyful Spring and Life In Eleven. The former was originally conceived of by Levy while in his early 20s, while the idea for Life In Eleven had its genesis in the Flecktones first incarnation. The band had long wanted to explore one of Levys passions, the Bulgarian dance rhythm called Gankino or Krivo. Almost 12, a piece Victor and Bela wrote after Howard left the band had earned the Flecktones a Best Instrumental Composition Grammy in 1998. Still, the goal of writing a Flecktone piece with Howard using the unusual 11/16 or 11/8 time signature was, to Flecks mind, unfinished business.When we got together, the 11 idea came back up and Howard came out with something very Bulgarian, he says. I said, Its really great but its really fast and jumpy and complex. What if, halfway through, we dropped into a gospel 11/4 feel that was so natural, that you didnt even notice it was in 11? It was an idea Id had in my mind for some time, a way of playing something in 11 that didnt confuse new 11 listeners, due to its complexitySongwriting was, of course, not limited to Fleck and Levy. Futuremans solo composition The Secret Drawer serves as preamble to Levys evocative Sweet Pomegranates, and Wooten brought Like Water, which Bela helped to complete, which stands as a majestic representation of his flowing, pianistic approach to the bass. For his part, Fleck composed a number of new pieces while also delving into his back pages for Earthling Parade and Storm Warning, a track that had been a highlight of his live sets when touring with Stanley Clarke and Jean-Luc Ponty. Though he had not previously considered either composition for the Flecktones, the new line-up inspired him to give them a second look.Those pieces now seemed more intrigueing with the original line-up, Fleck says. Not that they hadnt been cool in other settings, but with Howard in the picture we could go quite deep into the complicated zone while still keeping them earthy and warm. In September, the Flecktones met at Flecks home studio in Nashville for the first of two rounds of sessions. Where the band had customarily road-tested new material, working out the kinks in live performance, this time they did not have that luxury.We were writing some of the more complex pieces as we were laying them down, Levy says. But all of us have done so much recording outside of the group, where were used to seeing compositions take shape in the studio, that we were all comfortable with the process. We had to be very aware, Fleck says, because we were making final decisions almost from the start. But I think it yielded an improvised quality, an intensity, to the record. It was like, Lets make some good decisions and then commit to them.'In many ways, the albums sound centers on the return of Levys piano and chromatically played diatonic harmonica, taking full advantage of the new melodic designs each brought to the Flecktones sonic palette. Known as The Man With Two Brains for his uncanny ability to play both instruments simultaneously, Levy has built a remarkably diverse resume over the past twenty years, including solo and session work, membership in Trio Globo and Chvere de Chicago, collaborations with classical violinist Fox Fehling, and founding Balkan Samba Records and the online Howard Levy Harmonica School. The equally restless Fleck hails Levy as an incendiary player who by his very nature forces the band out of their comfort zone.When we play together, Victor, Futureman, and I all have to step up our game, Fleck says, because Howard is going to throw something unexpected at us, which in certain ways, puts us in an uncomfortable zone, but due to that, we have to push through into our higher selves. While prior Flecktones collections have often featured inventive and innovative instrumentation, this time out the band opted to stick to the basics. Fleck plays an assortment of banjos, mostly vintage, though an electric Deering Crossfire can be heard on Prickly Pear and a prototype 10-string banjo is featured on Joyful Spring. For his part, Wooten largely bypassed his famed assortment of bass effects, noting that the player is what truly matters.In my mind, the instrument is there to allow the musician to feel something and to express themselves, Wooten says. The music doesnt come from the instrument, it comes from the musician. Whatever instrument allows you to express yourself the way you want to at that moment is the one you should play.That said, Futureman took the occasion to unveil a new prototype Drumitar, his MIDI-based device that allows him to trigger samples using his fingers. A central element of the Flecktones sound, the first version of the notorious instrument was on its last legs after more than two decades. More significantly, new advances in technology allowed for the creation of a Drumitar more in line with the drummers vision, featuring better dynamics and the ability to record his own spectrum of drum samples.Twenty years later, the fruit is really ripe, Futureman says. There are things that I was trying to do back then but the sounds just werent good enough. Now its actually swinging the way I always wanted it to swing. For many Flecktones fans, the return of the original line-up allows a chance to see a band that many had never gotten to witness before. Indeed, a certain segment of the bands base discovered them during the Jeff Coffin era and may not even be familiar with Levys membership.There are people who dont remember the very beginning of the Flecktones, Futureman says. Its like people that started watching Star Trek: The Next Generation and never got to meet Captain Kirk. So here we go, the original crew of the Enterprise coming together on a new mission.Visionary and vibrant as anything in their already rich canon, Rocket Science feels more like a new beginning than simply the culmination of an early chapter. Where the band goes from here remains undetermined, but all four members agree that the promise of Bla Fleck & the Original Flecktones has yet to be fulfilled. Were going to have to have this experience together and see how everybody likes it, Fleck says. I know that we havent even come close to exhausting the possibilities with this record, but we sure went deeper than we ever had before.

  11. Dick Dale
    Event on 2016-08-11 21:30:00
    with The Revomatics
    Dick Dale real name Richard Anthony Monsour born on May 4th, 1937 wasn't nicknamed Guitar Legend" for nothing as he has invented the style single-handedly, Surf/Rock based on Gene Krupas Drum rhythm and the indigenous people plus the wild animals roars as the sounds are part of his guitar playing and he is the Pioneer and Creator along with then like second father Leo Fender of Fender Equipment. Leo tested everything on Dick.No matter who copied or expanded upon Dicks Genius blueprint, he remained the fieriest, most technically gifted musician the genre ever produced and is considered the Worlds second most influential guitarist on the planetGod only knows who the first is? Dale's pioneering use of Middle Eastern and Eastern European melodies (learned organically through his familial heritage) was among the first in any genre of American popular music, and predated the teaching of such "exotic" scales in guitar-shredder academies by two decades. The breakneck speed of his single-note staccato picking technique was unrivalled until it entered the repertoires of metal virtuosos like Eddie Van Halen, and his wild showmanship made an enormous impression on the young Jimi Hendrix. But those aren't the only reasons Dale was once called the father of heavy metal. Working closely with the Fender company, Dale continually pushed the limits of electric amplification technology, helping to develop new equipment that was capable of producing the thick, clearly defined tones he heard in his head, at the previously undreamed-of volumes he demanded. He also pioneered the use of portable reverb effects, creating a signature sonic texture for surf instrumentals. And, if all that weren't enough, Dale managed to redefine his instrument while essentially playing it upside-down and backwards — he switched sides in order to play left-handed, but without re-stringing it (as Hendrix later did). Dicks father was Lebanese, his mother Polish. As a child, he was exposed to folk music from both cultures, which had an impact on his sense of melody and the ways string instruments could be picked. He also heard lots of big band swing, and found his first musical hero in drummer Gene Krupa, who later wound up influencing a percussive approach to guitar so intense that Dale regularly broke the heaviest-gauge strings available and ground his picks down to nothing several times in the same song. He taught himself to play country songs on the ukulele, and soon graduated to guitar, where he was also self-taught. His father encouraged him and offered career guidance, and in 1954, the family moved to Southern California. At the suggestion of a country DJ, Monsour adopted the stage name Dick Dale, and began performing in local talent shows, where his budding interest in rockabilly made him a popular act. He recorded a demo song, "Ooh-Whee Marie," for the local Del-Fi label, which was later released as a single on his father's new Del-Tone imprint and distributed locally. During the late '50s, Dale also became an avid surfer, and soon set about finding ways to mimic the surging sounds and feelings of the sport and the ocean on his guitar. He quickly developed a highly distinctive instrumental sound, and found an enthusiastic, ready-made audience in his surfer friends. Dale began playing regular gigs at the Rendezvous Ballroom, a once-defunct concert venue near Newport Beach, with his backing band the Del-Tones; as word spread and gigs at other local halls followed, Dale became a wildly popular attraction, drawing 1,000s of fans to every performance. In September 1961, Del-Tone released Dale's single "Let's Go Trippin'," which is generally acknowledged to be the very first recorded surf instrumental. "Let's Go Trippin'" was a huge local hit, and even charted nationally. Dale released a few more local singles, including "Jungle Fever," "Miserlou," and "Surf Beat," and in 1962 issued his (and surf music's) first album, the groundbreaking Surfer's Choice, on Del-Tone. Surfer's Choice sold like hotcakes around Southern California, which earned Dale a contract with Capitol Records and national distribution for Surfer's Choice. Dale was featured in Life magazine in 1963, which led to appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show and the Frankie/Annette film Beach Party; he also released the follow-up LP King of the Surf Guitar, and went on to issue three more albums on Capitol through 1965. During that time, he developed a close working relationship with Leo Fender, who kept engineering bigger and better sound systems in response to Dale's appetite for louder, more maniacally energetic live performances. Surf music became a national fad, with groups like the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean offering a vocal variant to complement the wave of instrumental groups, all of which were indebted in some way to Dale. But in 1964, the British Invasion stole much of surf's thunder, and Dale was dropped by Capitol in 1965. He remained a wildly popular local act, but in 1966, he was diagnosed with rectal cancer, which forced him to temporarily retire from music. He beat the disease, however, and soon began pursuing other interests: owning and caring for a variety of endangered animals, studying martial arts, designing his parents' dream house, and learning to pilot planes. In 1979, a puncture wound suffered while surfing off Newport Beach led to a pollution-related infection that nearly cost him his leg; Dale soon added environmental activist to his resum. In addition to all of that, Dale performed occasionally around Southern California throughout the '70s and '80s. In 1986, Dale attempted to mount a comeback. He first recorded a benefit single for the UC-Irvine Medical Center's burn unit (which had helped him recuperate from potentially serious injuries), and the following year appeared in the beach-movie sendup Back to the Beach. The soundtrack featured a duet between Dale and Stevie Ray Vaughan on the Chantays' surf staple "Pipeline," which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental. In 1991, Dale did a guest spot on an album by the San Francisco-based Psychefunkapus, and a successful Bay Area gig got him signed with Hightone Records. The album Tribal Thunder was released in 1993, but Dale's comeback didn't get into full swing until, in 1994, "Miserlou" was chosen as the opening theme to Quentin Tarantino's blockbuster film Pulp Fiction. "Miserlou" became synonymous with Pulp Fiction's ultra-hip sense of style, and was soon licensed in countless commercials (as were several other Dale tracks). As a result, Tribal Thunder and its 1994 follow-up Unknown Territory attracted lots of attention, earning positive reviews and surprisingly strong sales. In 1996, he supported the Beggars Banquet album Calling Up Spirits by joining the normally punk- and ska-oriented Warped Tour. Dale refocused on touring over the years in the past along with owning two of the largest nightclubs in Southern Ca. . He returned years ago with a new CD in 2001, Spacial Disorientation and then much more has happened in his later years.

  13. Bonnie Raitt
    Event on 2016-10-14 20:00:00

    With the release of her nineteenth album, Slipstream, Bonnie Raitt is starting anew. The album marks her return to studio recording after seven years; it's coming out as the launch of her own label, Redwing Records; and it delivers some of the most surprising and rewarding music of her remarkable career, thanks in part to some experimental sessions with celebrated producer Joe Henry.The years before and after Raitt's last album, 2005's acclaimed Souls Alike, weren't an easy time for her, with the passing of parents, her brother, and a best friend. So after following that album with her usual long run of touringwinding up with the "dream come true" of the "BonTaj Roulet" revue with Taj Mahal in 2009 and a triumphant appearance at the all-star Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary concerts the same year she decided to step back and recharge for a while."I took a hiatus from touring and recording to get back in touch with the other part of my life," she says. "On the road, under stress, it's hard to stay in balance and move forward." Excited to have time at home and with her family and friends, she could go to the symphony, check out live jazz and Cuban shows, and so much else. She continued her ongoing political work, helping to organize NukeFree.org in 2007 and supporting her favorite non-profit organizations. "I didn't have to be the professional version of myself for a long time," she says. "It wasn't so much a vacation as a chance to take care of a lot of neglected areas of my life, a lot of processing after all that loss and activity."When she started thinking about making music again, Bonnie knew she needed to try something out of the ordinary. "I was really interested in working with different people, and someone I had always been drawn to was Joe Henry," she says. "I'm a big fan of his writing and albums and love the work he's done producing Allen Toussaint, Solomon Burke, and others. I thought it would be really intriguing to see what we could come up with. Coincidentally, he had been wanting to call me as well. Our first phone call lasted over two hours."They found a brief window when Henry's usual crew of musicians was available, augmented by a new friend of Bonnie's, the magnificent guitarist Bill Frisell. "I didn't have to produce or get the band together, I could just show up and sing," she says. "I came to Joe's with, to use a Zen expression, 'beginner's mind.'" The experiment yielded eight songs in 48 hours, and Raitt was inspired to get back to work full force. "I loved singing these songs and playing with these guys so much," she says, "This was just the jumpstart I needed to get me back in the saddle and wanting to work on a new album."She plans to release the full results of the Joe Henry sessions down the line, but for now she chose to include four of these tracks on Slipstream the Henry originals "You Can't Fail Me Now" (co-written with Loudon Wainwright III) and "God Only Knows," and two songs from Bob Dylan's Time Out of Mind album, "Million Miles" and "Standing in the Doorway." A few months later, Raitt gathered her long-time touring bandmatesGeorge Marinelli on guitar, James "Hutch" Hutchinson on bass, and Ricky Fataar on drumsalong with a new addition and an old friend on keys, Mike Finnigan (Taj Mahal; Joe Cocker; Crosby, Stills and Nash) in a Los Angeles studio. Bonnie was also pleased to have Maia Sharp, one of her favorite artists and a collaborator on Souls Alike, joining her team once again, adding back-up vocals to several songs.Where Raitt's last several albums concentrated on material from lesser-known and younger songwriters, Slipstream draws from more of her contemporaries, including Paul Brady and Michael O'Keefe's "Marriage Made in Hollywood" and a reggae-fied version of Gerry Rafferty's "Right Down the Line." Her longtime friend Al Anderson, formerly of NRBQ, contributes three songs and plays on four; his hard-bopping guitar work adds to the general sense of six-string gunslinging throughout the album. "One of the new things about this record is that we let the guitar jams go on for a while," says Raitt. George and I got into some rockin' back and forth like we do live, and I had a ball going head-to-head with Al Anderson, one of my all-time favorite guitarists, on his 'Split Decision.'More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. Born to a musical family, the nine-time Grammy winner, who Rolling Stone named one of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time," is the daughter of celebrated Broadway singer John Raitt (Carousel, Oklahoma!, The Pajama Game) and accomplished pianist/singer Marge Goddard. She was raised in Los Angeles in a climate of respect for the arts, Quaker traditions, and a commitment to social activism. A Stella guitar given to her as a Christmas present launched Bonnie on her creative journey at the age of eight. While growing up, though passionate about music from the start, she never considered that it would play a greater role than as one of her many growing interests.After forging an alliance with Capitol Records in 1989, Bonnie achieved new levels of popular and critical acclaim. She won four Grammy Awards in 1990three for her Nick of Time album and one for her duet with John Lee Hooker on his breakthrough album, The Healer. Within weeks, Nick of Time shot to number one (it is now certified quintuple platinum). Luck of the Draw (1991, seven-times platinum) brought even more success, firing two hit singles "Something to Talk About" and "I Can't Make You Love Me" up the charts, and adding three more Grammys to her shelf. The double-platinum Longing in Their Hearts, released in 1994, featured the hit single "Love Sneakin' Up On You" and was honored with a Grammy for Best Pop Album. It was followed in 1995 by the live double CD and film Road Tested (now available on DVD).In March of 2000, Bonnie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; this was followed by her welcome into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, along with her father, in June 2001. Over the years, Bonnie has appeared as a guest on over 100 album projects, as chronicled in the discography section of her official website. She continues to stretch the boundaries, performing with artists as varied as Cape Verdean singer Cesaria Evora, and legends B.B.King, Tony Bennett, and Willie Nelson. In 2003, she also participated in Martin Scorsese's acclaimed PBS series, The Blues, performing two songs in Wim Wenders' film, The Soul of a Man, and joining the all-star cast of Lightning in a Bottle, the live feature concert film on the Blues directed by Antoine Fuqua. She also contributed songs for two Disney movies, The Country Bears and Home on the Range. She played guitar on a track on Stevie Wonder's album, A Time To Love, and appeared in the TV/DVD tribute, Music l0l: Al Green.Bonnie continues to use her influence to affect the way music is perceived and appreciated in the world. In 1988, she co-founded the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, which works to improve royalties, financial conditions, and recognition for a whole generation of R&B pioneers to whom she feels we owe so much. In 1995, she initiated the Bonnie Raitt Guitar Project with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, currently running in 200 clubs around the world, to encourage underprivileged youth to play music as budgets for music instruction in the schools run dry. Bonnie currently sits on the Advisory or Honorary Boards of a number of organizations, including Little Kids Rock, Rainforest Action Network, Music Maker Relief Foundation and the Arhoolie Foundation.In the summer of 2009, Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahaltwo leading lights of modern bluesjoined forces for their first-ever tour together. The "BonTaj Roulet" tour featured Bonnie and Taj on stage alone and together, before closing each night with a collaborative, blow-out Rhythm and Blues revue-style performance. In addition to the glorious sounds made from the stage, the BonTaj Tour also raised over 0,000 for charity. In an act of democracy dubbed the BonTaj Collective Action Fund, concertgoers voted amongst four cause areas and net proceeds were distributed in proportion to overall votes tallied.Now, Raitt is re-energized and excited to strap her guitar back on and get to work. After spending her career split between Warner Bros and Capitol Records, she is venturing out on her own with a label called Redwing Records. (Slipstream will be distributed by RED in North America and Proper Records for Ex North America.)The album's title is very significant for Bonnie Slipstream isn't just a beautiful sounding word, but an indication of her place in the music community. "I'm in the slipstream of all these styles of music," she says. "I'm so inspired and so proud to continue these traditions, whether it's reggae or soul or blues. I'm in the slipstream of those who came before me, and I'm leaving one for those behind me. I'm holding up the traditions of the music that I love."

  17. Jewel
    Event on 2016-05-25 20:00:00
    with www.jeweljk.com, Griffin House
    Jewel is an acclaimed American singer, songwriter, actress, poet, painter, philanthropist and daughter to an Alaskan cowboy singer-songwriter. From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, the three-time Grammy nominee, hailed by the New York Times as a "songwriter bursting with talents" has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists. Whether alone with her guitar or fronting a band of ace musicians, Jewel has always been a charismatic live performer, earning the respect of other singer-songwriters such as Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, who, not only invited her to open their shows, but mentored her in the early phases of her career. Her singular style and beauty continuously land her on the covers of such diverse magazines as Time, People, Entertainment Weekly, Vanity Fair, In Style, Glamour and Seventeen. Stuff listed her among its '102 Sexiest Women in the World' while Blender went further, crowning her 'rock's sexiest poet. '2011 brought new joy to the singer/songwriter as she and her husband Ty Murray welcomed baby Kase Townes to the world. Soon after the singer released The Merry Goes'Round, her second childrens album with Fisher-Price and Somerset Entertainment. The album writen while pregnant and inspired by Kase, appeals to kids and parents alike and includes over 15 songs and 4 classics such as The Green Grass Grows All Around and My Favorite Things, plus new whimsical Jewel story-telling originals. The album was named itunes Children's Album of the Year in 2011.This September Jewel released a picture book and CD based on a song from The Merry Goes 'Round. The book titled, "That's What I'd Do" is perfect for bedtime sharing again-and-again. In addition Jewel is portraying June Carter Cash in the Lifetime movie based on her life. The film is due to be released in 2013.After a tremendous amount of success as a singer-songwriter and over 27 million albums sold, Jewel returned to her roots with the release of her debut country album Perfectly Clear in June 2008, which garnered her a spot at #1 on the Billboard country album charts. Perfectly Clear was the debut release on the Nashville-based independent label The Valory Music Co. Shortly after Perfectly Clear, Jewel debuted her first-ever independent release, Lullaby, in a partnership with Fisher-Price and Somerset Entertainment. Lullaby was produced by Jewel and recorded at her home studio in Stephenville, TX. To date, it as sold over 350,000 copies. The 15-track album features 10 self-penned songs and a few standards including beautiful renditions of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." The acoustic record is reminiscent of Jewel's twelve-time platinum album Pieces of You.Jewel has spent a lot of time in Nashville over the last few years, and has naturally been drawn to and accepted by the Nashville music community. She has hosted the country reality show "Nashville Star" and she has made a number of appearances at Muzik Mafia events. She co-wrote and sings with new artist Jason Michael Carroll on "No Good In Goodbye" which appeared on his debut album, Waitin' In The Country (Arista Nashville). She was also invited to sing with Merle Haggard, a long time hero of hers, on his album of #1's. In 2010, Jewel maintained her country roots as she returned to the format with her sophomore follow-up album, Sweet and Wild. The album was written and produced by Jewel. Her insightful love ballad Satisfied, received a Grammy nomination for "Best Female Country Vocal Performance.""The theme of this album is finding what's true about you and your life, and defending it and valuing it above all else," said Jewel. "My newest country album will share so many of my personal feelings of love and happiness that I have written into the songs," said Jewel, who married her longtime boyfriend Ty Murray in the summer of 2008 and our now expecting their first child. In the summer of 2011 Jewel was seen as host and judge on the Bravo series, Platinum Hit. The show followed 12 up-and-coming musicians as they battle through a series of innovative songwriting challenges testing their creativity, patience and drive and also featured fellow songwriter Kara DioGuardia.Also near and dear to Jewel's heart is her charitable initiative, Project Cleanwater, which she continues to support, unwaveringly. Jewel founded Project Clean Water in 1997. Having experienced homelessness as a teenager, Jewel became ill and couldn't afford to buy the bottled water she needed for her sick kidneys. She then realized it was difficult to obtain clean water in the United States, and discovered it was a huge problem globally. She has been relentless in her efforts to bring safe water to those in need and create awareness of clean water shortages around the world. Project Clean Water has recently partnered with Virgin Unite and the Voss Foundation to create the "Give A Drop" campaign. Donations of .00 can be made by texting the message "DROP" to phone number 85944. Money raised through text donations will benefit the partnership, which is currently working in Pel in the Dogon region of Mali, where 40 water retention structures were recently completed. This spring, work will also begin to help rural villages in southeast Ethiopia expand their access to clean water.Jewel currently lives on a working ranch in Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar, Ty Murray and their baby Kase Townes Murray. HistoryJewel's family were original pioneers of Alaska who settled there when it was still a territory. Her grandfather, Yule, drafted the Alaskan constitution and served as the state's senator. She was raised on the family ranch with the same old world traditions. Her home was located in a very remote area, far from any town, and had no running water or electricity (they used a coal stove for heat and had an outhouse).Both of her parents, Atz and Nedra, enjoyed making local records and performing; and, along with her brothers, Jewel (her given name) accompanied her parents on tours through native villages. "At six I remember singing for Eskimos and Aleuts in remote places, taking dog sled rides through frozen tundra," she says. "We canned berries and made our own butter- ate only what we raised and stored." When her parents divorced, she spent more than a half-dozen years with her father touring as a duet act, starting at the age of eight. "We sang in biker bars and lumberjack joints. If the cops were ever called, I'd hide in the bathroom till they were gone," she says. At fifteen, she went her own way, performing solo for the first time and earning a vocal scholarship to Interlochen, a private arts school in Michigan where she also majored in visual art. It was here she learned guitar and began writing songs, inspired by a love of reading at a young age. "Reading made me feel connected to the world," she explains. "The writers I returned to again and again were the ones that were brutally honest, willing to show themselves as heroic at times, grotesque at others. Anais Nin, Charles Bukowski, these were heroes to me."Heartfelt songwriting became not only an emotional outlet, but a means of survival. During spring break one year she took a train and hitchhiked in Mexico, earning money as a street-corner minstrel. "I made up lyrics everywhere I went and eventually it turned into a very long song about what I saw around me," she recalls. "I made it back to school two weeks later with an unformed song called 'Who Will Save Your Soul'." She was 16 at the time and had no idea that song would, a mere three years later, become the first single from her first album, offering not just a days meal ticket, but meteoric success. Moving to San Diego, a series of unfortunate events led to living in her car and, after it was stolen, borrowing ,000 from a friend to buy a van to live in. She got her first regular gig at a coffeehouse in Pacific Beach, where fans soon multiplied like rabbits, building a local cult following. Label A&R guys started coming as well, and Jewel was signed to Atlantic Records close to her 19th birthday. Her first record, a deeply introspective, live, voice-and-acoustic-guitar, modern folk collection called Pieces of You, sold about 3000 copies, nearly all in San Diego, in the nine months after its February 1995 debut. So, Jewel hit the road with a vengeance, playing four shows a day in 40 cities. A folk singer at the height of grunge, she was encouraged by two acts she opened for: Bob Dylan, who actively listened to her songs and discussed lyrics with her, and Neil Young, who gave the nervous solo artist a piece of advice at Madison Square Garden: "Its just another hash-house on the road to success. Show 'em no respect!" Hard work and heartfelt songwriting, not to mention an exquisitely expressive voice, paid off. After a year on the road, "Who Will Save Your Soul" became a major hit. And, with the release of two other hit singles, "You Were Meant for Me" and "Foolish Games," album sales went through the roof, as Blender magazine writes: "With considerably less fuss, [Pieces of You] went on to exceed the sales of Nirvanas Nevermind, moving a phenomenal 11 million units." Hailed by The Times of London as the most sparkling female singer-songwriter since Joni Mitchell, Jewel's subsequent albums steadily built her reputation and fan base. In November 1998 came Spirit, a collection of inspirational ballads aided by sparse, supportive instrumentation. The next November she offered up Joy: A Holiday Collection, blending well-loved Christmas carols with traditional spirituals and other songs, followed in Fall 2001 by the best-selling album This Way. In June 2003, her fifth work, 0304, premiered at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking both the highest-debuting and highest-charting album of her career to date. Describing it as a modern take on 40s dance hall music, Jewel brought dance beats, synthesizer flavors and layered vocal overdubs to the album, which included the top five hit single "Intuition." Touring remains part of Jewel's essence and, through her U.S. and world tours, she has forged a powerful, intimate bond with audiences around the globe. Her extraordinary voice and engaging stage presence have earned her acclaim throughout North America, Asia, Australia and Europe. Among her many accolades are four Grammy Award nominations, an American Music Award and an MTV Video Music Award. In 1999, she was presented the prestigious Governors Award from the Los Angeles chapter of the Recording Academy (NARAS). The award, now known as the "Recording Academy Honors" award, recognizes those whose creative talents and accomplishments have crossed all musical boundaries and have been recognized as an asset to our music community. Her debut poetry collection in 1998, A Night Without Armor, quickly became a mainstay of The New York Times bestseller list, with 29 printings and a remarkable million-plus copies sold and is the best-selling poetry book of all time. The audiobook version received the 1999 Audie Award from the Audio Publishers Association. The following year saw the publication of her second book, the intimate journal Chasing Down The Dawn, a revealing chronicle of an artist's life on the road. Jewel's full-length home video, "Jewel: A Life Uncommon," offered an autobiographical documentary rife with live performances, archival footage of her upbringing and interviews with the people closest to her. In 2004 came her first live DVD, "Live At Humphreys," shot three years previously in San Diego, showcasing her boundary-crossing style in an intimate concert setting. Jewel had a song "Stay Here Forever," featured in movie and on the soundtrack of the blockbuster hit Valentine's Day. The singer's songs and ethereal voice have accompanied many other motion pictures in the past including Clueless, Batman & Robin, Phenomenon, Life or Something Like It, Sweet Home Alabama (theme song) and Ang Lee's independent civil war drama Ride With the Devil, where she earned critical praise for her acting debut alongside stars Tobey Maguire and Skeet Ulrich. Becoming a staple on television, from talk shows to Saturday Night Live and Mad TV, Jewel also guest starred on the NBC drama The Lyons Den, playing a lawyer opposite series star Rob Lowe.

An Easy Way to Handle Pay Stubs

When I decided to become a small business owner, I knew that there were going to be growing pains in some aspects of this new life I was creating. Thankfully though, they were few and far between, and not very painful either. Perhaps the most noticeable one to me when I first hired on a teen to deliver orders for me was in trying to handle his taxes myself. I had inquired about the cost of an accountant, and it was just too much. Thankfully, I found a paystub generator not long after doing his first two checks on my own.

I thought it would be easy enough, but I could not figure out the taxes to save my life. There are just so many different ones, and I did not want to mess them up at all. I knew I needed help, but I was still trying to avoid hiring an accountant for this. I didn’t want to end up paying more than what he was even making! I looked online, figuring that I could not be the only one in this boat, and I was able to find exactly what I needed.

ThePayStubs is a company that does all the work for me. All I had to do initially was put in my own information, including my company name and address. Then, I put in some information for the teen I had hired. All I have to do now is put in how many hours he has worked and the amount of money he gets paid, and everything is sorted out for me. I only have to pay a small fee for it, which is much lower than what I would pay an accountant for this. It is emailed to me instantly, and I am able to print it and have it in my employee’s hands within minutes. It really does not get much easier than that.

We Have Hughesnet Satellite Internet for Our RV

I like having a stable Internet source when we are in our RV. We like to travel, and we have good and bad experiences with RV park Internet service. When we added Hughesnet satellite Internet to our rig, we finally had reliable Internet service. Now you do need to understand that we will use the free Wi-Fi at campgrounds and parks, but we only do that if it is stable. I mean we can take spotty service if we are just looking at websites, but we need reliability when working on the road. We are full time travelers, and we do online work.

Another time we like stable Internet service is when streaming a show or movie. It gets really annoying to see a buffering message due to a choked RV park Internet service or low Wi-Fi signal. Some places have invested in an elaborate Internet to keep all the customers happy. Some places have not. Having the Hughesnet satellite Internet service lets us connect any time at any place we happen to pull our RV over and park. We use free Wi-Fi in shopping plazas, and we sometimes do overnight stays at Walmarts. If we are out where there is no cell signal or any Wi-Fi, the Hughesnet still works. Its dish looks right up into the sky at the satellite, and it forms a two-way communication. A downlink for downloading data, and an uplink for sending requests and uploads to the Internet.

The monthly service offers us enough data to make it useful for us. It is less than the cost of our 4G cellular data that we used to use when we did not have free Wi-Fi or a park connection to the Internet. We also use it at our rural home that we keep for use when not on the road.

Playing with the Magic Wand

I buy toys from a local adult store, but I get tired of them quickly. I’ve used every toy in the store, and have tried using them together, but there’s not much I can really get out of them anymore. One day while in the store, I was talking to one of the cashiers, and she told me that I might want to look into a magic wand massager, which wasn’t sold at the store. She told me that the massage wand was a step up above the items they had in the shop, and it would be worth the money.

I did some research on the magic wand and it did look like a premium product compared to the toys that I already bought. The adult store should probably buy some and keep them in stock if they want to have more customers. Since the wand wasn’t available at the local shop, I had to order it online from a website that sells adult items. Upon ordering, the website asked me if I wanted to order some attachments to go with the wand, but I declined. I wanted to try the wand out first before I add more things to it.

The wand came in a couple of days, and later that night after I came home from work, I opened the wand and read the instructions on how to use it. I pressed the wand against my skin and turned it on, and instantly I was hit by a vibrating sensation. It was fast and tingled my nerves, but it felt really good. It was like one of those vibrating massage chairs that you see at the mall, but it was much more intense. I used the magic wand for an hour and took a rest, then used it again.

My Short-term Trip Turned into a Long-term Living Arrangement

I work for a real estate investment company, and we have locations around the globe. I started working there while I was in college. Believe it or not, I started my career there as a clerk in the mail room. I worked there part time and I went to school to get my degree at night. But now, I am one of our company’s biggest executives. I do quite a bit of traveling. I was just told that I will be going flying out to watch over a new condo launch in Singapore just months ago. That has now turned into a permanent move to the area.

I have to be ready at a moment’s notice to travel. That has always been the way it is since I became an executive. Sometimes, I am only given a day or two notice. It just depends on what I need to oversee at whatever location I need to get to. I mostly fly around the US, but in the past year, I have already been sent out of the country about five times.

After attending the launch of the new complex that we built in Singapore, I nonchalantly mentioned to the president of our company that I would not mind being sent there for any other duties that need to be done. He said that sounded great because they were thinking of asking me if I would like to move there for the next three to five years. With the move would come a promotion with a very large pay raise. They want me to stay there and manage our location there because they were so happy with how I handled the trip.

After asking for a little time to think about it, I took my company up on the offer to move and manage things overseas. It is long-term, but I will be back. In the meantime, I have my sights set on learning and doing new things on a daily basis there.

We Had to Have a Tree Cut Down

One of the reasons why my husband and I bought our house is because of the land it is on. It is just one acre, but it is absolutely gorgeous. The one thing that really drew me to it was a large maple tree in the front yard. It was glorious and majestic, so when it was damaged by disease, I was truly heartbroken. I figured it would need to be cut down, so I did a search on my computer for a company that does tree removal in Brooklyn NY. I wanted to have someone come out and tell me first if there was any chance in saving the tree, and they were qualified to do this.

When the person came to look at the trees and give me an estimate on what needed to be done, I was so nervous. It turns out that it was for good reason. The maple tree was too far gone to be saved, but the good news was that the disease had not spread to any of the other trees in the yard. I knew that the yard would still look good, and it would be the best choice to just have the maple removed completely.

My husband agreed with me on this, and the tree care company gave us a quote on what they would charge if we wanted them to do it. It was a reasonable rate, and we scheduled an appointment for them to come out and take the tree down. I honestly could not watch when they did this, and there are still days where I will look out and get sad when I see that it is gone. I am already thinking of the next tree that I want to plant there though, and we are going to the nursery soon to find one.

Working a Part Time Job

I have been looking for a full time job since I got out of high school, but so far it is not going that well. I was working part time for a guy who does tree removal in Asheville NC. Of course I have no idea how to do the actual tree removal, but I am paying attention. You have to do that because there is heavy stuff falling from the tops of those trees. You could easily get killed by a big chunk of wood falling from forty or fifty feet in the air. I am down there to clean up after the guy in the tree top. His name is Will and he is pretty good at this stuff. What you do is to start out by piling up a bunch of small limbs and that is the target that Will aims at when he cuts off a piece of the tree. You do not want to do a lot of damage to the person’s yard and when these pieces of firewood fall from a good height they can make a big dent in the ground. That is especially true if one of the edges strikes first. I have to pay close attention to what Will is doing and I have to be sure he is not going to drop one of these big chunks of wood on top of me. That would be really bad for me obviously. I get a really good work out doing this, but it is a hard job. We have a pick up truck which is full of the stuff that we need to do the job and we pull this large high walled trailer. In fact you can not hardly load a whole tree of any size on it, because of all of the water in green wood.

The Perks of Getting DirecTV

It really isn’t hard to please me. I like to keep things simple, which is why I decided to switch providers for my TV programming. My cable company kept changing their channel packages, and I had to switch packages at least three times in the last couple of years. After the last time, I knew that I was not going to continue on with them if I could find something better. That is how I came to find http://www.directstartv.org/. I was looking at the options I had for satellite TV, and it did not take me long to figure out that DirecTV was the best option of all.

One of the main reasons I decided to go with them is because they are the exclusive carrier of the Sunday Ticket. I love watching football games every weekend during the season, but I don’t like having to watch what my local market dictates. There are some games that I would much rather watch, but the cable company just doesn’t have permission to show them. That is not the case with DirecTV. They are able to show every single game every single week, including the preseason games.

That was not the only perk that I really liked about DirecTV, though it was the biggest one. I also liked that I will get to watch some shows that are only on the premium channels because I would be able to get all of them for free for the first three months of my subscription. If I like the shows, then I will be able to order whichever packages they are in. I have not wanted to do that in the past because I didn’t feel like ordering something and then canceling it if I didn’t like it. I get to do it in the opposite order this way, and I like that a lot!

Easy Preventive Measures for Drain Health

To prevent accelerated buildup in drainpipes, and to avoid having to call a plumber for drain cleaning in Bergen County, consider the activity that occurs before the drain. Food manufacturers and processing plants have can have a difficult time with a drain system if they are manufacturing foods that contain or use oils and grease. These plants may have either steel or food-grade PVC pipes. The high-pressure steam and heat used for steel pipes almost always causes damage to PVC pipes, requiring them to be replaced or repaired with glue and solvent. Figure the cost of electricians and mechanics and it is easy to see the benefit of preventative maintenance.

In your home, as well as businesses, there are simple tools that can be implemented to reduce the risk of backups or clogs. There are also products and cleaning agents that contain digesting bacteria and enzymes that reduce odor and microorganisms. These agents should be used on a monthly maintenance schedule as a preventative treatment before a problem occurs. Depending on the product used, it may prevent the buildup entirely or reduce already existing buildup. Periodically, it is advisable to hire a professional service to treat the entire line beginning at the drain trap. Often, problems can occur in the sewer line due to structure, deterioration or even tree roots. There are products available for these circumstances and the key is to catch the problem early. A professional should be consulted.

In the kitchen and laundry care should be taken to reduce the amount of waste that goes through to the pipes. A garbage disposal may be the most important tool to assist in this effort. This mechanism is installed in the drain of the sink and alters the size and consistency of the waste that goes through. The water should always be running when the disposal is used to help it function properly. Fats and oils should never be poured or washed down the drain as they solidify later and build up inside the pipe causing a clog.

Getting My Roof Issues Taken Care of Has Given Me Peace of Mind

As someone who lived in apartments for many years, I really have appreciated owning a house of my own. Although I had the house appraised before purchasing it, it is an older house that has slowly fallen apart in a variety of ways. The roof was fine when I purchased my home, but just months after moving in, the roof began leaking. I let it go for awhile, which was a mistake. I found myself desperately needing roof repair in Manhattan NY recently because of my error in judgment. I can honestly say that I have learned my lesson.

The issue started years ago. I got up on the roof and replaced some shingles. That seemed to work for awhile, but I am no expert, and I did not realize that was not good enough. When three more rain storms occurred, the roof started looking again. That was when I decided to try to use tar to fix the problem. That worked right away, and I thought that was the end of the problem. Just a few more rain storms passed, and the problem appeared again. That was when I made the mistake of simply placing buckets on the floor each time it rained and put off getting expert help.

When I look back on the situation, I cannot believe that I let it go for so long. Rather than taking care of my home, I took expensive vacations that were not necessary to take. But when part of my ceiling caved in, narrowly missing me and my little girls, I understood juts how necessary it was for me to have done something about getting the work done much sooner. I certainly do not want to be harmed, but had the ceiling pieces hurt my little girl, I could never forgive myself.

All it took was making some quick phone calls to local roofing companies. After receiving a few quotes, I chose a company and they came out and did all the work for me. My roof looks great, and I no longer have to worry about the troubles I had with it before.

A Tree Fell on My Roof

When a storm blew through a few weeks ago, no one could have imagined the damage it would cause just to my house. It was pretty quick, but all it took was one lightning strike to the large oak tree to cause mass chaos at my house. The tree cracked and fell onto the roof, damaging large chunks of it. I knew that I was going to have to get a tree specialist as well as a roofing contractor in Brooklyn to help me get order back on my property.

I contacted both the same day, and thankfully both were quite responsive to the situation. The tree surgeon was able to remove the entire tree since the lightning strike had damaged it beyond repair. That left a few gaping holes in my roof, and I contacted the roofing company that had installed a new roof on my neighbor’s house a few years ago. He was satisfied with their work and told me that the price he was given was extremely reasonable. Insurance would be covering the cost, but I still wanted a company that understands the value of hard work and a dollar.

When the roofers came out to look at the damage, they assured me that they could repair the sections that had been damaged. They were even able to match the asphalt shingles so no one would be able to tell the difference between the old roof and the replaced sections. They had everything done within a couple of days of calling them, and I am so grateful for that. I thought that it was going to be a headache that lasted a while, but order was restored quickly. I won’t need to replace the entire roof for several more years, but they are the company I am going to call when that needs done.

Best Wedding Photographers in Area

Not too long from now, I am going to be getting married. I am pretty excited, because for a long part of my life I never thought that I would manage to find a girl that would really make me happy. But I have and we are going to get married and she is going to make me the happiest man in the world. I am pretty lucky in that regard, and it is almost a dream. I need to hire a wedding photographer pretty soon, because the wedding is getting closer, and I am getting to the point where I do not have much time left to get the arrangements in place.

My wife only gave me a small subset of the total arrangements to handle, because she does not really trust me with a lot of things, but I guess she figures I can’t screw up something like picking a wedding photographer. Initially I was going to get my cousin to do it for free, because that would have been ideal and it would have kept my prices down for how much we spent on the whole wedding. I am pretty sure that I am going to be able to get the wedding done and come in under budget but we will have to wait and see.

I don’t want to say that for sure just yet, because it is not clear that it will be the case. But it might work out. I am going to go knock on wood, because I kind of wish that I had never said anything in the first place. I really am excited about the wedding though, and it could not get here soon enough as far as I am concerned. I am just tired of having to wait for the day to arrive.

An Apartment That Allows Pets

I had to find an apartment quickly that allowed pets. The apartment I was living in had been damaged by a wind storm, and the landlord said that the owner had decided to just tear it down instead of spending money to rebuild it. A friend of mine told me I should look into Alicante apartments. They are not far from where she lives, and she told me that they are really nice. She told me that her apartment complex doesn’t allow pets, which was the case for a lot of them here in town.

I went online and looked at Alicante, and I was impressed from the moment I saw the home page of their website. The pictures are gorgeous, and I later found out that they don’t even do them justice. The first thing I checked after looking at the pictures was their pet policy. I saw where I would be allowed to have two dogs, and I could even have cats if I wanted one. Right now, I just have one dog, but I have been thinking of getting her a brother or sister. The prices for the pet deposit and fees along with the rent for having two dogs was extremely reasonable. I would actually pay less at this apartment than I did at my last one!

After that, I looked at the grounds, because I wanted to make sure there was ample space to walk my dogs. I am saying plural because I know I am going to end up getting another one now! Anyway, the grounds have a really nice trail that reminds me of a park setting, and I knew that we would all be happy living there. It was easy to get the application process started, and we are happy living here now that the move is finally over and done with.

I Needed to Eat More Fiber

My sister and I were having a discussion on losing weight not long ago. She told me she had read how fiber is such an important aspect of losing weight, but I didn’t think that was what was keeping me from dropping some pounds. She went home that night and sent me an email that simply said to click here along with a link to the article that she had read about fiber. I read the entire thing, and it was hard to dispute because it was backed up with facts and proof.

I decided to do some of the things that the article had suggested, which was to eat more foods that have fiber in them and to eat less of the foods where the majority of the fiber has been stripped out. I had no idea that the apples I was eating contained very little fiber since I do cut away the peel. I also didn’t know that white rice was not filled with the kind of fiber that brown rice is. I had never tried brown rice before because it just seemed bland to me. Funny how I could have gotten that opinion of it without even trying it first.

I changed that day, since it was the day I was going grocery shopping. I got whole wheat bread instead of white, and I got brown rice instead of white. I also got nuts instead of chips, and I purchased some fruit that is high in fiber. I started eating these things that same day, and I could tell a difference in just a couple of weeks time. I was definitely eating more fiber, and I was definitely losing weight too. The best part is because of so much fiber, I was not feeling as hungry as I usually do too!

My Neighbor Has Hair Like Mine

I had to laugh when my neighbor told me the other day that she wishes she had hair like mine. She looked confused at first, but that was only because she did not know the truth about my hair. The fact is that her hair is exactly like mine. I have no volume or thickness with my natural hair, but the curly weave extensions that I wear make it seem otherwise. When I told her that I wear extensions, she was pretty surprised. She had no clue, which made me feel really good, because that is sort of the point.

She was still confused though, because she thought that weaves that look that natural would cost a lot of money. She also thought that wearing them daily like that would make it even more expensive, but that is not the case with the company that I buy my weave extensions from. They are extremely affordable, and the weaves are so natural looking that only mother and now my neighbor know that I even wear them.The reason why they are so natural looking is because they have weaves for every hair type, making it very easy to match the extensions with any hair type.

I showed her the website that I buy them from, and she told me she would have been skeptical had she not known that I wear them too. That is why she bought some kinky curl weave extensions from the same company, and I taught her how to put them in when they were delivered. Even though I wear them myself, seeing the difference in her was pretty amazing still. She has always been beautiful, but she is more confident about her appearance now, and that makes her even more beautiful. This has also gotten the two of us even closer, which is nice!

Crude Oil Prices Reflect the Energy Market

Crude Oil and natural gas have been the key commodities that have played a very significant role in determining the course of international trade and commerce. It has been an important player for any country since it is very much needed as a fuel, for the transportation services and also for the various industrial applications. This is the sole reason that the energy experts do really believe that in the years ahead, there will be an increasing demand for crude oil and which would put additional pressure on the oil exploration companies worldwide. Even with lower First Choice Rates, we’re all dependent upon crude oil.

On account of this the worldwide community has awakened to this reality and they feel that there will be a shortage for this precious fuel in the coming years. If such a situation arises then there will be a surge in the crude oil prices worldwide which will in turn hike the prices of the other essential commodities. To release such a pressure that is very rapidly building up in the world, most of the nations have started their own oil explorations with a view to decrease their over dependence on the current oil producing and exporting countries.

By producing oil within their boundaries they would become self sufficient for meeting their own oil requirements. This would make their economy strong and would also make them more self reliant by meeting their energy requirements. US for the past so many decades have been exporting oil from other countries since they had to meet the ever growing demands for the it in their country. recent survey conducted in the United States regarding the crude oil consumption and the production, showed that its economic consumption of it on a daily basis stands at around twenty one million barrels. But the disappointing factor is that the US is producing only five million barrels of crude-oil per day. This is the sole reason for their over dependence on the crude-oil exporting countries. Many economic experts point to the fact that there has been a tremendous growth in field of science and technology in the last few years. This has resulted in the over consumption of the crude-oil to meet the daily needs of the American citizens.

Buying a Treadmill to Lose Weight

When I had trouble zipping up my summer shorts, I knew that I was going to have to do something. I was not going to just go out and buy new summer clothes, especially when I knew that we were probably going to take a beach vacation at some point. Instead, I resolved myself to the fact that I was going to lose those extra pounds the old fashioned way, which was by working out. I knew that I would not have a lot of time to go to a gym, so I looked at the best small treadmills on the market.

I figured if I wasn’t able to go to the gym, I would just bring the gym to me. I wish I could walk outside, but we don’t live in the best of neighborhoods, so I just felt safer getting a treadmill for the family room. Besides, I knew that my husband two kids would probably use it too. I just had to figure out which one to get because I had never owned one before. The family room is small, so I knew that I was going to have to find a compact treadmill if I wanted this arrangement to work out.

I went online and was able to find a website that turned out to be my own personal website for anything and everything to do with treadmills. I was able to find out basic things like the size and weight of each one as well as the price and if it was electric or manual, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. I was able to read reviews and ratings, and that is how I ended up with a compact treadmill sitting in my family room just a week later. The best part is that I actually use it every single day, and my clothes are fitting me so much better now!

The Perfect Solution for Storage

When my grandparents decided to sell their home, they had to decide what to do with a lot of their possessions. They had lived in the same house for nearly 50 years, so they had accumulated quite a bit of things. Some, like the sofa and bedroom set, would go to the small condo that they purchased. I had heard of a self storage company – Store Friendly – that is close to where they bought their new condo, so I decided to see how accessible it would be for them. It is less than two miles from where they now live, so I decided to inquire even further to see if this was a viable option for their storage needs.

The issue of storage came into play because they have so many different things, and they wanted to make sure that everyone had their fair shot at whatever they wanted. This wasn’t something planned well in advance though. Someone made an offer on their home, and it was too good to pass up. They had purchased their new condo within weeks of that. So, they needed a storage place for all of their possessions not going to the new condo until they could sort everything out.

They have seven children, including my mom, but most of them are super busy with careers and families. Two of my aunts don’t even live in Singapore at the moment. When I found out that the storage facility would not cost very much on a monthly basis, I suggested it to my grandparents, and they thought it was a brilliant idea. They had been pondering about their options, yet neither of them had touched on this. They were able to get one of the larger units, and several of my cousins and I moved everything in there once they took what they wanted for their condo. They can walk here and get things they need, and slowly the pile is dwindling down. It really was the perfect solution.

Pricing for Cheap Web Hosting

I would really like to start my own website, because there are so many people these days that are becoming internet famous, that I am just kind of jealous. I wish that I had tried to do this years ago, but it seemed so hard back then. Now it seems like all sorts of people are becoming internet famous and a lot of them are a lot less interesting than I am. I am checking out metro detroit seo for a new website, and I hope that it will not cost a lot of money to get a website started.

I am sure that a basic hosting package does not cost that much. I will not have a whole lot of traffic on my site to start out with. At least, I do not anticipate having a whole lot of traffic on the site when it is first starting out. Rather, I think that it will take me a few months, at the least, to really get things going.

I do not have any idea how long it will take me to build the site either. I might have to get some help with the web design aspect of putting this site up. I am not very good with that sort of thing, to be honest. But I do have some really good ideas for the content of the website. That is where I think I will really shine, once everything is up and running and set up the way that I want it to be. I am going to have to take a break from typing this because my shoulders are really sore at the moment. I think that I slept on them wrong, or something like that. But I do know they do not feel very good right now.

Trying to Figure out How Best to Replace This Walk Way

Department of Labor - Masonry Apprentice Contest ... LLC ... I have owned this house for about a year and a couple of months right now. It was a project and we did not move in to the place until we had been renovating it for nearly three months. We still do not have all of the things we need to do. Right now the priority is to replace the walk ways which goes half of the way across the front of the house and the back of the house. I have been talking to a couple of sidewalk contractors in Bronx NY and most of my conversations have involved the cost and difficulty of the demolition job you shall have to do prior to replacing the walk ways. You obviously can not just lay down a well functioning piece of concrete on top of these things and at any rate that would bring you up way above the level of the ground in the front yard and the back yard. You would end up having to come in with a big load of dirt and even out the situation, then fix the grass or plant something else to hold the grass. I am curious as to whether or not it makes much sense for me to try to do the demolition by myself. I am not physically the biggest guy you ever saw, but I am not petite either and I am in pretty good shape. I sort of wonder how much time it would take for me to do this if I went to the rental place and got a jack hammer. It obviously would not be a barrel of laughs, but for example I am thinking that I could do the back on a Saturday and then do the front on a Sunday. I am sure the neighbors would be less than pleased, but they would mostly understand.

Sort of Taking Care of My Grandma

Of course we are trying to convince Grandma this is something else, but it is not. My Mom told her that I needed a place to stay while I was going to school, which is true. Of course this is not a very good location. Still my Mom and my Aunts, and my Uncle Leo all decided that I could be a senior companion in Queens. Of course I can make it to school from here and I can watch after my Grandma up to a point. It is not like I am going to be with her around the clock or anything remotely close to that. Instead I am going to be there when I am not at class. Of course I was thinking about getting a job, but I might be able to get by without one. It will be sort of tough either way. I need some money, but my Mom is going to send me some and my Aunts and uncles are saying they can help me out if I do this.

Of course I need a place to stay and I really like my grand mother a whole lot. So it is a good deal that I get to see her. This girl I wanted to go out with thought it was a little odd, but I explained it to her. It is a bit different from other college students, but obviously most of them are going to be broke like I am and you have to figure out how you get through it with food in your belly. It is going to be a huge help to have a place to stay, but obviously it would be better if it was closer to where I need to be in the morning to get to school.
