Image
When I retired from the phone company as a customer service rep after 32 years I really had to watch my pennies. I could not spend on big presents and vacations. I had watch every penny. It was really a struggle when my husband had some big medical issues that came up and our thin budget was stretched to the bone. I started to look for ways to make money from home but every thing I looked at needed some up front money and then I had to advertise the product. That would have been another $500 to $1000 per month. That was money I just didn't have. So how could make some extra money from home ?

I found out about Article Marketing. It really is the easiest way to make money that I have ever found. I started out using my daughter's computer because I didn't have one of my own. I then spent time at the library. About 45 minutes a day is all it took to write an article and send it out. BUT that is not the best part. The best part is when I started making money from the articles I …

Late Night Eating and Weight Loss - Will Eating Late at Night Prevent Weight Loss ?™

Image
In the fitness arena there exists hundreds, if not thousands of theories regarding the issue of weight gain. Not the least of which is the idea that eating late at night will cause a person to pack on pounds more quickly than if a person were to only eat during the daytime.The logic behind this theory is that since most people are less active while sleeping, they will naturally become fat if they eat right before going to sleep. It is true that most people are less active when they sleep than they are when they are awake.But, in order to really know the truth as to whether or not this late-night eating theory is valid, we must consider some additional information.During sleep, the body secretes a substance called human growth hormone. Human growth hormone increases and maintains muscle mass while decreasing body fat.So, even though the metabolism naturally slows during sleep, the HGH that is secreted during sleep is working to speed the metabolism, thus helping to burn up any addition…

Single Women Have a Unique Retirement Problem™

Image
Much of the discussion concerning retirement planning is targeted toward men who are retiring from their careers with a spouse who seems to be considered 'along for the ride'. Perhaps that scenario was true in the fifties, sixties and seventies but, for a lot of the population, that is no longer true today.Among the Baby Boomer generation are millions of single women who must plan for their retirement independent of any spouse. This is a double edged sword. While this independence eliminates the responsibility to provide for another person in your retirement years, it also means that there is only a single source of income to fund the retirement.Obviously, the earlier that a woman begins to think about and plan for her retirement, the better off she will be when she gets to the retirement "Red Zone". The "Zone" begins 5 years before actual retirement and ends 5 years after your retirement date. At all times before you enter the Zone, time is on your side. I…

The Top 10 Quick Tips that will save common household recipes !!!™

Image
1. Making great biscuits: biscuits are great from scratch because most recipes use only 5-6 ingredients. My personal recipe uses only baking soda, baking powder, flour, buttermilk, salt, and butter. The most important thing to remember to ensure that your biscuits come out fluffy is to make sure that you use cold butter and that you leave the butter in small chunks throughout the mixing process. A common error is to mix the butter smoothly into the mixture. If you leave the butter in chunks, as your biscuits cook, the butter will form layers in the dough and the result will be more rise and fluff. This also works for making any puff pastry from scratch. Another great idea is to take the dough and put a thin layer over the top of a bowl of soup, then to bake the whole bowl in your oven. This will give your soups a beautifully fluffy top. Of course, make sure that your bowl is oven safe before baking it. 2. Get a really good non-stick skillet: if you're tired of having food stick to…
