To get this out there, there’s very little chance that you don’t know what a bug zapper is. There’s also at least a chance that you’ve never actually used one in real life and have just seen them used in a cartoon, movie, or TV show. Bug zappers have all but become a part of pop culture, usually indicating that a character lives in a very rural setting and more often than not comes from the poorer side of the tracks. So let’s get rid of that mental image right off the bat, because bug zappers are actually very useful tools that can make your home and yard a bit more comfortable as bugs that bite are out looking for a nibble in the heat of summer. How Bug Zappers Work While the “zap” in the name gives away a large part of how bug zappers work, the system is a bit more complex than just t...

For believers, it's more important than ever to really know God's word. Believers can be and are easily deceived, and distracted when they take their eyes off of Him. In New Age content, there is much talk about the spirit, God, the Creator, but I have never found a link to Christ in any of their teachings.  It's important that believers know what New Ageism is referring to, and the distinct differences between that teaching and that of the God of Abraham, the God of the Bible. In this episode, Dr. Paula tackles this topic head-on, without hesitation, and with a conviction and boldness that is much-needed in these times. If you have even a seed of doubt in the deity of Jesus Christ, or His love being the truly divine energy source, listen and consider Dr. Paula's words today. For more p...

 In the early 1970s The Carpenters were one of the most sought-after acts in the world. According to their website they performed over 800 live concerts between 1971 and 1975 in addition to recording 10 albums and three number one singles. In the late 1970s they produced five television specials. That was an incredible workload.During the 1970s The Carpenters were On Top of the World.Driven by Richards compositions and harmony and powered by Karen’s deep sultry voice their music is easily recognizable and still sounds great 50 years later.Although being known mostly as the lead singer, Karen, fancied herself as the groups drummer and wished to be known for her drumming skills.I could have chosen any number of Carpenters songs for our article today but I chose Top of the World because it...

If you have received an IRS Notice of Deficiency, also known as CP 531 or Letter 531, then you need to act quickly or you'll lose rights.  Ignoring this notice will also start the IRS collections process.  Liens, Levies, and other harm to your finances could start pretty quickly after this notice is issued.  It is important to know your rights and exercise them. I am a tax attorney in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  I represent taxpayers before the IRS and state tax authorities all over the country.  I help with tax debts, tax audits, payroll tax issues, and criminal tax matters.  The most important right that you will lose by ignoring the Notice of Deficiency from the IRS is the right to file a petition in the United States Tax Court. Once the deadline on the Notice of Deficiency passes, this...

Wordless Wednesday...Watching Children Play Something I think is so important is play... for children and for adults!   So if you’re reading this, I’m presuming that you’re past the child stage of your life and you can organize your own form of play.  But for children, play is crucial to their development. Besides wearing them out before their bedtime, play is how they learn...it helps to develop their creativity and imagination.    We had family over on Sunday and with the many toys that their grandmother brought over, little Raffe was more interested in the fire hydrant in front of our house.  He explained to his grandmother and cousin the purpose of the hydrant, where the hose went, and some creative ideas about other parts of the hydrant and their function.  If you get the chance to...

If you think that refurbishment of your house is the most complicated and exhausting thing you’ve ever faced, it means you haven’t started the furniture arrangement yet. Finding the proper place for a sofa, a TV set, a coffee table, table lamps, or cute decor items is able to drive you crazy. The following information helps you to furnish your living room in the best way without great effort.The first thing you should realize is that the room should be harmoniously combined with the rest of the dwelling. If it is much different from other spaces, it will get annoying sooner or later. Moreover, you should prefer function to form. Of course, a round sofa may become an awesome focal point of your living room. Yet, you and your family members are unlikely to spend lots of time on such a sof...
