When I went in the military, I had no idea where life would take me. I knew that you can be stationed in a variety of places, and I was ready for that. I lived in many different states, but I think my favorite one has to be Georgia. So, after I served my time, I decided to stay there. I began looking at apartments for Sandy Springs GA tenants as soon as I knew that I was getting out of the military.

I had been stationed in August, Georgia. I really liked it, but I had spent some time driving around the state on the weekends and found some other areas that I liked even more. Sand Springs was very high on my list. I had never even heard of the city before. I just happened to be on a long drive one very nice Saturday, and I came across the border into the city. I stopped immediately at a coffee shop and went inside to relax for a bit and have a drink of coffee. (more…)

One of the major aspects that bother the travelers when they decide to visit Tikal is the hotels that they can accommodate themselves in, as they set out further to see the Tikal National Park and Tikal temple.
There are known to be three crucial hotels, simultaneously it is estimated that the parks are indeed the main attraction for nearly 15% of the visitors who travel to Guatemala.
As one visits Tikal one cannot simply miss the opportunity that nature has showered on humans that is of visiting the splendorous ruins of the Tikal temples.
Apart from the Tikal temple is the fascinating not-to-miss the mention of the Tikal National Park.
Considered as an area that is said to cover the Petn region in the northern Guatemala, the Tikal National Park is known to house some of the most fascinating reminiscences of the Mayan civilizations.
Hence it is seldom surprising as one learns that Tikal is so far one of the largest excavated sites by the Pennsylvania University recorded to be between the years 1956 and 1969.
Labeled proudly as the largest excavated site as far as the American continent is concerned even today the saga of excavating and restoring continues.
The best known park, Tikal National Park still ranks as the most popular tourist destination, with the striking complexities that are blended by nature including the wetlands, the lowland as well as the highland forests, which are so well conserved.
One gloats upon the sight of the regionally endemic species with the fifty-four species of mammals that are witnessed in the park such as the crocodiles the Central American river turtle, the howler monkeys, not to forget the mention of the spider monkey, the ocellated turkey; besides the felines that include the jaguar, the ocelot, and other species that they are on the IUCNs red list.
No wonder that Tikal National Park and Tikal temple are classified precisely as vulnerable; however the major threats to these sites are the forest fires and poaching.
No doubts there are continuous efforts

Just like all human couples do, animal couples too have ups and downs. Although they don’t seem to be so dedicated to each others’ love like people do, they still appreciate love. They like to cuddle, talk to each other, kiss & hug, tease each other etc. If what I’m saying is too confusing for you, I’ll ask you to keep on reading and learn more about animal couples and what makes them so similar to humans…

There are animals who kiss goodbye – Praire dogs are such animals. Apart from kissing they also love to cuddle and show the affection they have for each other in public. Yep it’s true, prairie dogs are very sociable rodents.

There are animals who love to talk things out – Parrots, once they learn to talk, it’s hard to stop them. They like to talk to anyone about anything, including -important parrot- matters with their partners.

There are animals who love to agree and disagree – Well, it seems like parrots are not the only one who are fond of talking. Husky dogs Mishka and Laika also know how to use the power of speech to settle -love quarrels.-

There are animals who love to tease and to be teased – Even when they are very little, cats know the power of teasing. Although they are loners by nature, cats simply enjoy both to tease and to be teased.

There are animals who love to hug – Racoons, they enjoy hugging each other! They haven’t read anywhere about the positive effects of hugging they just feel like doing it! It’s time for a hug everyone! (even if you’re not a Racoon).

There are animals who love spooning – Lions for example, are not only the kings of the jungle but also the kings of spooning. They sure know what’s good, right?

Knowing that animal prints are classic in the fashion world, it does not only comes in dresses; you can find also find it in beddings, comforters and a lot more.

Let’s study these simple steps on how to find animals prints a place in your room. .

1. Before anything else, choose one animal print you want; as we know there could be a lot of them. If you find changing the wall colors and curtains unnecessary, then you might want to choose a print that matches.

For the beddings, a lot in the store today sells a complete set of animal print beddings. The set will save you from worrying about the right pillowcase or blanket to purchase.

2. Set limits for the budget. If you don’t budget your money, you will end up nothing but an empty pocket. The key here is look for sales and discounts; most of the time a big department stores offer this one. Shopping when there is a sort of sale would really save you a lot of money without sacrificing the quality. Another option is to shop at Amazon or auction sites, they do not only offer complete stuffs of animal prints but their prices are also cheap.

3. If the room is already equipped with some furniture, you can modify it by placing bedspread or cushions. But of course, these add one’s should be related to the theme.

4. Keep the room clean. A tidy room will definitely improve the image of your room. It will also make the room more comfortable to sleep on.

Do you just love animals and want to do your part in protecting them? The month of April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. This is in honor of the signing of the charter of the ASPCA in 1866. Throughout the country buildings and landmarks will be lighting up in the signature color and Going Orange for Animals. Each year, four million cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters across the countrythats about one animal every eight seconds. We can all help by raising awareness; spaying or neutering your pet is single most important thing you can do to help prevent animal cruelty and the unnecessary deaths of healthy cats and dogs.

If you want to get involved, you can just wear an orange t-shirt or you can design a custom t-shirt of your own. There are several site out there you can use to create
custom t-shirts, but the best one I have found is LoveThoseshirts.com. They have several different styles of shirts, many of them in orange. Also, you can customize your own text to say what you really want and they have many animal pictures to choose from. Making your own custom t-shirts, doesnt actually save them of coarse, but it does raise awareness and that is where it starts.

In 2009 the National Spay/Neuter Tour, the ASPCA spayed or neutered more than 31,000 cats and dogs in New York Citys five boroughs alonedramatically decreasing the number of unwanted animals entering New York City shelters. We need more of the same all over the country. We can change things for our furry friends, if enough of us fight for them. I have designed custom t-shirts for the cause and handed them out to local pet shops and shelters hoping to get more people involved. You can help to prevent the deaths or abuse of countless animals too. Just think, if you help to get only one animal spayed or neutered, you are preventing possible future animals that could end up on the streets to fend for them selves. These animals are at high risk for
