Chores and your marriage

Vacuum Cleaner Carpet Cleaner Housework HoOne of the major complaints I hear from my customers that are married is around the issue of chores. I can tell you from my own 30-year marriage that the matter of chores was a big deal in leading to the end of the marriage.
The Issue That Broke The Camel’s Back
I clearly remember the problem that’broke the camel’s back’ My ex-husband desired to have our big Thanksgiving dinner at our house instead of at my parents’ home, and that I was all for it IF he promised to help. My experience in the past was that I ended up doing all the work and was too tired to actually enjoy the dinner, whereas if it was at my parents’ house, I knew that my father was an equal contributor regarding family occasions. “I need your help.” He smirked at me, going into his usual immunity, and walked away. I felt crushed, and my inner child was upset with me that I had thought him when he so often either forgot what he’d said or went into immunity.
That is the day I moved out of our bedroom and into my upstairs art loft. “I am not going to spend any more time with you till you can be loving and caring for three months,” I told him. In the past he could do it for a week or so and then would go back to being angry and resistant.
Obviously, the issue about chores was not our only problem, but it was indicative of the underlying issues, which were a lack of caring and respect toward me, and often treating me with anger, withdrawal, sarcasm, and projection – followed by the crazy-making of denying that he was doing these things, and blaming me instead. And, of course, I was an equal participant in this system with my caretaking and accepting others’ unloving behavior toward me, so I was both responsible for the problems.
Doing Chores Together Can Create Intimacy
Recent research indicates that couples who do chores together, instead of 1 person doing more chores, or dividing the chores, have more psychological and physical intimacy. Doing chores alone can be lonely, while doing them together can be a time of fun, affection and sharing, and it certainly makes the time go by faster when you are doing the dishes together as opposed to doing them alone. Sharing chores may be especially important when you have children, because it’s often hard to find time to get together to talk about your day or share your feelings with each other.
While the study shows that couples who do chores together have better marriages, I wonder if the underlying fact is that couples that enjoy being together and have good marriages find that they enjoy doing chores together. Is the doing of chores together the cause of their intimacy or the consequence of it? More research would need to be done to ascertain this.
Regardless of which comes first, I’d think that couples who do chores together have a much better chance of feeling connected with each other than those who don’t. Not only does it give you some time together, but in addition, it prevents both the resentment of one person doing too many of the chores, as well as the loneliness of doing chores independently.
If You’re Not doing chores together with your spouse, you might want to share these posts and see if you both may be interested in this recent research:

US Exports

Port Ships Cranes Load Containers Sea Sky

Exports from the U.S. have grown from $448bn to $1.55tn over the past 25 years, but which export categories make the most money?

The USA has 248 export categories valued over $1bn, three times greater than a quarter of a century ago.

But besides the stereotypical exports from The States such as corn and cotton, medicines, meat and gold, which are the top export market categories that actually rake in dollars?


Aircraft is far and away the largest export category in terms of monetary value from the U.S. – one-third more valuable than the second export with this list .

1 thing that’s certain is that the likes of Boeing would not enjoy a trade war between the world’s two export powerhouses.


The value of the gas market has increased massively in recent years, despite the clamour from governments to turn to renewable energy sources and international businesses to be seen as green.

Last year, gasoline (including other refined petroleum products) raked in only under $77.5bn whilst Mexico holds 27% market share and Canada 11%.

Motor Vehicles

It is estimated that this year foreign motor brands will produce more vehicles in the United States compared to U.S. firms will. Last year, a vast majority of those exports entered the Canadian, Chinese and Mexican markets with two U.S. ports exporting more than $1b each throughout the year.

Perhaps not surprisingly, among the nations that lead in motor vehicle exports also makes a whole lot of cash exporting individual motor parts. However, the motor industry is cautious of possible NAFTA disturbance that could alter the face of this auto-exporting industry.

Computer Chips

The first’modern’ export to make the top-5 U.S. export categories is that of computer chips. Given the small size of the export, the majority of the product travel abroad via airfreight – 50% of that from just four airports in Los Angeles, Dallas, San Francisco and Cleveland.

What other products are also leading exports for the U.S.? Food, drink and feed has been the top value class when combined worth some $133bn. Soybeans made up $22bn of the, with poultry and meat just behind at $18bn.

Concerning services, travel and transport ($136bn), finance and insurance ($76bn) and intellectual property earnings ($49bn) accounts for the most.

Do You Have These Qualities of Rock Star Employees?

Workplace Team Business Meeting Business P

Engagement numbers have not changed much in the years the Gallup Organization has been keeping track. In the United States, employee engagement numbers hover around 30 percent. In the rest of the world, the picture is even bleaker – only about 13% of employees are engaged.

What exactly are the traits of a rock star employee? Here are seven attributes which you will find in most members of that elusive group.

Responsible: Top actors take ownership of whatever project they’re working on and set high standards for their own performance. They’re only satisfied when your customers are singing your company’s praises. When they have a success, they make sure the others that helped and supported them along the way are also recognized for their contributions.

Optimistic: Regardless of what’s happening, they are programmed to search for the good in people, jobs, and situations. They are energetic, enthusiastic and confident in their job and how the members of their team work together. They look at obstacles as challenges to overcome as they’re excited to grow and open to change. They have a positive outlook and could be counted on to lighten up the room when they’re around.

Creative: Rockstar employees have the ability to look at all sides of a problem and think of a lot of new and exciting options. They are not afraid of failure, as they know that part of being successful is having to fail from time to time. They have the unique ability to use out-of-the-box thinking to develop new methods for looking at and solving problems.

Kind: Engaged employees have excellent people skills and have a broad network of people who know, like and trust them. They get to know people as individuals and abide by the “do unto others as THEY would have done unto them” rule.

Studious: Your best talent wants to be better tomorrow than they are today. Top actors invest in themselves and their skills so that they can grow and develop both professionally and personally. They love to learn, and they look for any opportunity they can to gain knowledge about a number of subjects. If they are not sure of something, they’ll do the research necessary to discover the solution.

Team players: Gallup shows that actively engaged employees have a strong network. Engaged employees focus on lifting others as they climb and enjoy sharing the spotlight of their achievements because they realize they did not do it alone. Although they may take the lead on projects, they have a very clear connection between staff activities and the team’s purpose. They allow others to enjoy the job and the journey with them.

Action-oriented: Typical workers make to-do lists. Rock stars set their priorities and get the work done. They don’t hesitate based on fear or indecision, they look at the situation and take action based on the information they have at the time they get it. Because”objects in motion tend to remain in motion,” rock stars decide to”fail forward” and keep the momentum going. Their enthusiasm for what they do helps them know when to compromise with others and when to stand firm.

Risk-taker: Natural leaders aren’t afraid to shake up the status quo. They make the choices necessary and push the limits of their comfort zone. They take bold action toward their objectives. They feel that if they aren’t making mistakes, they’re not learning. They love to suggest new ideas and new ways of thinking, and their fire inspires others to take their lead.

Take the time to notice when your ROCK STAR employees are accomplishing great things. Ask them for their ideas and learn from them. When you utilize the best practices learned from your actively engaged employees, you acknowledge their value to your organization and help the rest of your team move your organization ahead.

Thinking About Buying A Franchise?

Menu Eat Dining Room Restaurant Franchise

Are you someone who’s considering buying a franchise? While a great deal of people consider owning a franchise, not many take the opportunity to do a proper calculation of a franchise price. It turns out that there are several factors that influence the final cost of the franchise that means that each company will be different. However, whichever restaurant you are interested in, there are a few common costs which are the exact same in each circumstance. This includes the franchise fee, all build-out expenses, contractor fees, professional fees, signage, and your stock. It also requires you to have enough working capital to start and stay in business until the company can actually support itself. Let us take a moment to further discuss the common costs that come along with a franchise opportunity.


Every company will require that you pay the initial franchise fees. These fees cover the cost of training, support as well as site selection. The advantages (or items) that are included in these charges are different from one company to the next. In certain cases, these fees are simply an upfront licensing fee which gives the owner the right to use the corporation’s name. This is why it’s a fantastic idea to take the time to do research into what you will be receiving in return when paying your franchise fee.

This fee can vary from $20,000 to $50,000. However, there are some instances in which your charge may be less than $20,000. Those with reduced franchise fees are generally mobile or even home.


If you are interested in purchasing a franchise then you should check a professional franchise attorney. He or she will have the ability to help you review the Franchise Disclosure Document, better known as the FDD. They can also help you to better understand the franchise agreement. The amount you pay also comes down to how long you spend with your attorney.

Just make sure you keep a thorough and clear record from the very start. You might even consider hiring a professional accountant to keep an account specifically for your meetings. Not only can the accountant ensure that you don’t go over budget with your legal fees, but they can also make certain you have sufficient working capital.


The cash that you’ve got available from day to day is referred to as working capital. This amount has to be able to cover a particular length of time. This time period can range from two to three years-whenever your business starts to pick up.

The franchisor will usually provide estimates of the amount that you need, however, it’s a good idea to do your own research if you want to be certain that your calculations are based on your market rather than system averages.

4. Build-Out Costs

Build-out cost is another element that can vary from one franchise to another. Once you’ve decided on a location which the company approves, you’ll be able to determine the build-out costs. Including furniture, equipment, signage, and fittings. It may also include the professional fees for architectural drawings, contractor fees, protection, insurance, and landscaping. There’s one exception: home-based franchise; these franchises don’t have any build-out costs.

5. Supplies

You can not run your franchise without the proper supplies. This could be something as straightforward as plastic utensils to your everyday office supplies. Franchisors will usually provide a list of what is needed. This amount can vary, but an owner should expect to pay well over $100,000 in most cases.

6. Inventory

If you are purchasing a retail franchise, or any other franchise where you’re selling a particular solution, you must stock up on inventory. Once again, every franchise is different and has different requirements. You may be required to purchase between $20,000 and $150,000 worth of inventory.

7. Expenses While Coaching

In actuality, completing training is usually a requirement. This amount may also vary based on the needs of the people.

As you can see, having a franchise isn’t a straight-forward endeavor. If you would like to be successful with your purchase, then you need to understand all the different things that come into play fiscally. In cases of franchises such as Mcdonald’s, your total costs will amount to more than $900,000. However, with diligent research and realistic expectations, you should be able to secure a place with your chain of choice.

Guns for Self Defense

Gun Weapon Pistol Handgun Army Revolver Sh


I’ve been asked about the sort of gun or ammo to buy for home defense and about concealed carry of firearms and knives. Some of those questions were from those who have never owned guns before and a few from those who”despise” firearms and even hate gun owners as well to a degree.

One of my buddies has interest in a company close to the World Trade Center site. 1 close friend was the person who first reported the airplane that struck the Pentagon, about three windows from his office window. Another friend of mine lives on Long Island and works in the construction industry and at a enormous lumber shop there; so she’s in constant contact with employees and contractors connected to the nyc area. I’m no authority, in my mind, nor compared to a few I know, but I am quite open in my communications on anything. So, I am asked about plenty of things. I have been around guns, gun stores, police, army, and worked as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer, as a Security Policeman in the U. S. Coast Guard, and as a Safety and Public Relations individual at FEMA for some time in disaster preparedness and as an onsite disaster center worker.

I do have some remarks and some are quite powerful. They’re based on knowledge and expertise and information from people who know better than I.

For the exact reasons we have smoke detectors, first aid kits, fire extinguishers; lifestyle, health, dental and house insurance. Because preparation, preparation and investment in appropriate instruments and apparatus — give us more control over ourselves and our fate and well being in almost any arena. And, having greater control of our own lives and potential is a native issue and need for the majority of us.

I think, and many of us believe, that any life worth living is worth defending. We’ve committed 40, 50, 60, or 100 hours per week to supplying our families so that they might live life without significant interruptions or inconveniences and death or injury in the hands of a”Bad Person”. Disaster is definitely not part of our strategy for optimal success for us and our loved ones.

Because people are natively brave nor brave and because people are more comfortable, less fearful, having something to hand for family and self defense; using a weapon to hand or a process of protection and defense is an internal instinct that’s intrinsic and native. That may include choices to lock the doors, live in safer places and remaining awake to news and current events. The Bad Person, BP yells as such implements in the hands of someone not used to fighting for their lives and it’s actually laughable if you have ever seen a street thug fight or assault someone.

The truth is the police aren’t even expected to arrive to shield you. They’re expected only, by legislation, to come and mark chalk lines around your dead body and that of your loved ones – and to write up the accounts, take pictures of the blood splattered walls and flooring, and file them away together with a report on what they find in the spectacle of your murder.

None. A non shooter should have no gun. Possessing a gun without taking time and effort to learn the way to use it properly and safely reach what is aimed at isn’t just absurd but it’s dangerous. HereI agree with all the anti-gun men and women. They need ton’t have a gun because they would not use the gun and would probably shoot someone for nothing, or miss and hit somebody else. Non-Shooters should not own firearms, period. It’s a breeze that if they do not trust others with a gun, then they certainly aren’t worthy of trust with one themselves, and that is certain.

First of all, do not get a gun if you’re not going to become proficient with it and that takes some time, training and repeat. My first suggestion is that the .38 caliber/.357 caliber revolvers. These are cheap and easy to find used or new. The .357 revolver and may be used with low power .38 caliber ammunition for training and for defense the identical gun will permit the use of extremely strong .357 ammunition. They’re made to hold 6 or 5 cartridges and that ought to be fine for home protection. They are quite precise and fairly easy to learn. They’ve no”security” lever so under pressure and at the terror of having to use one for self defense, there’s absolutely no safety to keep in mind about changing to the flame position from the secure position. Many, many individuals have died as a result of attempting to defend themselves with a gun which was on safe when they had to fire it to prevent someone from killing them. The Bad Person will not wait for you to bear in mind the safety. I am not in favor of safeties in any respect. Every individual in the house that has access to the gun has to be trained in safe handling.

Once someone has fired several revolvers or several handguns, a lot choose a pistol. A pistol is a semi automatic handgun that doesn’t have a cylinder but includes a magazine to hold several cartridges instead. It’s called a semi-automatic since it moves a brand new cartridge in place to befired whenever the trigger is pulled, the same as a revolver. Some pistols hold 15 or 20 rounds or shots because we call it. Modern pistols are only permitted to have 10 rounds in America because of some idiotic legislation passed by people who shouldn’t be allowed to possess guns themselves.

Incidentally, an”automatic” is a gun which fires each the shots, in machine gun rapid fire style with a single pull of the trigger. Few people own and even fewer can efficiently use an automatic weapon. They are better for sound than for hitting something. The real best option for home defense is a shotgun. But most individuals want a pistol as it is a lot easier to have alongside the bed and to get ready. The shotgun however is a lot easier to target under pressure and is more likely to stop an attacker quicker. Shotguns are available in many sizes and configurations. They are available in several cartridge sizes also. The two most common sizes are 12 gauge and 20 gauge, there are quite a few different sizes but for home defense we will follow the more common 12 or 20. Ordinarily the shotgun is less costly, easier to use, and better for protection than a pistol by far.

Lots of individuals feel that shotguns have taken that spreads, to send out a wall of lead, and that you can not miss with a shotgun. . The longest distance most people will have the ability to shoot in shield, within our houses, is about 20 feet. At the distance the size of the ring of shot from a shotgun is roughly two and a half inches in diameter or less. Some folks want to get all kinds of specialty ammo to get a shotgun to use in home defense. That isn’t needed. The lowest priced”bird shot” is the best for home defense and also the least likely to go through wall after wall after wall through your home and to the sleeping rooms of the rest of your loved ones and the neighbors up and down the road.

Incidentally, most pistol ammo will go through three or four partitions, maybe more, before it stops in the event that you miss the person you’re shooting in self defense. Where are the children? Consider it before you buy a gun.

Guns are costly and good guns are extremely expensive. There are a number of ways to beat the system however. There are many used guns on the marketplace, especially police firearms, because everybody, particularly the police, want to have the coolest and most awesome and many new gun that’s being advertised. They trade in the older guns and frequently the older firearms are the better firearms although less trendy. Silly are not they? There are a number of great used pistols, revolvers and shotguns from the gun stores of America and a number of them are superior to the new stuff in reliability and precision. Go figure! J Or you can buy a new gun.

Regardless of what you get, make sure you learn how to use the gun properly and get some instruction from a person who knows guns and secure handling. Most men believe that they are genetically endowed with gun smarts and they’re not. In fact most men that are first time or infrequent users of firearms are a lot more stupid and a lot more dangerous than girls and no more likely to hit what they aim for .

To begin with, according to my own experience. I’ve taught several hundred people how to take for the first time and have helped a few dozen others take better. By the way I am not a professional firearms instructor, only a willing friend and neighbor who has taken a lot and owned a great deal of guns over a great deal of years.

Should you get a gun, and I am not always sure you should; maintain your defensive firearm handy but protected and practice, practice, practice. Practice frequently enough to be harmful to the Bad Persons and frequently enough to NOT be harmful to yourself and your loved ones. At a minimum which will be weekly for a month or two and then monthly for many months and then at least every two or three months afterwards. Even people who hunted all the time 30 or 40 years ago but not much in the past ten years, aren’t to be trusted to be secure and true with a firearm now.

The absurd news shows, the significant media day news is fond of displaying all kinds of buzz saw bullets and bullets which will penetrate bullet proof vests and all manner of other crap. Now, regarding ammunition; you do not need a great deal of ammo for self defense. In a defensive situation if you want more than ten or twenty shots, then you’re probably going to die anyway since there are too many people for one to defend against or you’re just too poor a chance to defend yourself. But under the strain of self defense, It’s not unusual for police to overlook every single shot from a 15 shot

Pistol when shooting a Bad Person that’s just 15 or 20 feet away. In take outs where trained police are shooting at BPs who also have guns, it isn’t uncommon for several hundred shots to be fired for every individual that’s killed. Consider It. They should practice a good deal more do not they. Fortunately BPs do not practice much, if any, either. What you need a lot of ammo for is practice.

How about all these superb and unique self defense bullets? There are bullets which cost $6 each or more which should work better and quicker for self defense. The actual fact is that it does not matter a HOOT how pricey the bullet is, even if you overlook an essential place in the attacker. Everything you need is practice, practice, practice, so you could surely hit what you’re aiming at and STOP an attacker. REAL experts say: It is far better to take the attacker 6 times fast and correctly once you will need to block the attack than it is to hit them with a single super-duper-Cowabunga-pooper bullet. So practice.

Some folks are worried about possible social chaos, rogue bands of damaging thieves, possibly dangerous riots, and there’s a certainty , for the first time, this war is occurring here and there are no safe zones, no less certain safe zones. As members of a community, we try to encourage our community with private and community commitment — a cost others are and have been willing to pay. Now it can be our turn. I am not saying this is right or correct or even necessary; I am just saying that’s what some folks feel and think.

Having a weapon is a private choice. Years ago just about all women carried a couple of long hat pins for protection and just about all guys carried a stout umbrella or a walking stick. In most countries, even today, it’s deemed sensible to take a dagger, a dirk, or maybe a pistol (like in Israel) or a gun all the time for self defense. I don’t have a position either way for whether or not YOU have a weapon or opt to defend yourself against those who would rob or hurt you and those close to you.

I do take 1 position however. I think that people who say guns are bad and nobody should have a gun and no one should protect themselves with a gun should have signs in their garments, their automobiles and around their homes and businesses. That sign should say”I don’t believe in guns or other weapons, and I don’t have any weapons, and I won’t defend myself, and I don’t believe in anybody protecting themselves from an assailant.” If you’re really against self defense and against firearms – establish it and post the signs!

Otherwise, for those of intellect; Take care, prepare, practice and be secure.

Can men and women be just friends?

The short answer is ‘Yes’, but with conditions.

Men and women cannot be friends from the very beginning because the reason a man, particularly, will be interested in a woman is not platonic. It is most likely to be sexual. At the start, two strangers of the opposite sex are always drawn together through basic physical attraction, nothing else. There is always the hope, by at least one party, that the friendship will lead to something more romantic, and possibly permanent. Friendship under that guise cannot ever be platonic. There will always be stress as one person attempts to keep the other person as a ‘friend’ and the other attempts to move that friendship along to something else.

Men's White Button-up Dress Shirt

The only time real friendship is possible between a man and a woman is when the expectations, on either side, have been fulfilled, or clearly understood by both parties. Then they can move on to something more platonic without sexual needs interfering. By that time, both parties would either have fallen out of love, if they were lovers, and now enjoy another level of comprehension and appreciation, or they would have accepted the decision that just a platonic friendship is possible between them.

There are some exceptions to this but there really are very few, because when it comes to people, sex will always be in the equation. That’s how two people get together to reproduce our species and that will always be in the forefront of any meeting: the capability to mate. Obviously, once that’s sorted, in one way or another, a different kind of friendship is possible. Each person will then appreciate the other in a more general way, feel more confident with the situation and much more comfortable with having the person as a real friend. Only then will Grant-Valkaria Rat Removal be allowed to develop.
