What kind of person drives a Jeep? Someone who believes driving can be fun. Jeep owners make up a special group of people, those that have discovered the many benefits of steering one of these popular vehicles into their driveway each evening. Let’s face it, there will always be traffic jams, red lights and construction crews slowing down traffic. But if you’re behind the wheel of a Jeep, somehow all that isn’t a major inconvenience. In fact, Jeep drivers might even consider it a plus– they get to stay in their vehicles longer. If you’re wondering about the appeal of buying a Jeep, check out these seven advantages.

The Jeep has a classic design with a unique look. If you like your vehicle to stand out and get noticed, the Jeep will do just that. The styling of a Jeep is rugged and ready for action. It’s an exciting combination of an SUV and a convertible, giving you the best of both worlds.

Its 4×4 capabilities give you a solid ride on any road or even off road. The Jeep is made to be driven regardless of the weather or the road conditions.

Its easy maneuverability makes this vehicle a pleasure to drive in the city. Parallel parking is a breeze thanks to the short wheelbase and tight turning ratios. Pick your parking spot and glide the Jeep right into it.

The simple construction of the Jeep makes repairs uncomplicated and more affordable. Parts for this vehicle are usually readily available, keeping the cost in check.

With an interior designed to withstand the elements, Jeeps continue to look good. Being exposed to various weather conditions with the top off only seems to highlight the ruggedness of this vehicle. The interior was created to be used and enjoyed. Clean it, take another ride and clean it again if you need to. You will be pleasantly surprised to see how well the interior holds up.

Priced relatively low, a used Jeep is a good value for the money. It’s American made and was built with durability in mind. Jeeps can easily last for many years and miles, and since repairs are affordable, a lot of owners keep this vehicle for a long time.

Even though all of these advantages are wonderful, the best thing about owning a Jeep is driving it every day. It’s just plain fun! Every time you leave the driveway, a new adventure begins. The superior handling of a Jeep makes getting around the city or country stress-free. Weather or road conditions aren’t a headache when you are steering a Jeep in rain, mud, or snow. The acceleration gives you the power to pass slow moving cars, and the excellent visibility gives you a safety advantage. Jeeps can be customized for your personal preferences, giving you an additional dimension of comfort.

Jeeps are perfect for any season and every age group. Sensibly constructed, the Jeep also has a flair for fun and adventure. It’s the kind of vehicle that was made for real life and good times.

Check out our website for a massive selection of Jeeps for sale. Pick up a fantastic used Jeep Wrangler, the best selling used Jeep Cherokee and pretty much every other model of Jeep at very competitive prices.

When considering a prime vacation destination in the thick of winter, what comes to mind? Perhaps your first instinct is to flee from the cold and lounge on an exotic beach somewhere. But for a much more cost-effective domestic adventure that provides great experience and fun for the whole family, why not investigate a getaway to Colorado for skiing, snowboarding, beautiful sights, and more?

So, where do you start? Well, there are a number of cities which host plenty of ski resorts. Let’s talk about a few of them.

Breckenridge is a town located in north-central Colorado, with a world famous ski resort located just outside its limits. The resort boasts over 2,300 acres of skiing area, with its longest run stretching three and a half miles. Most of its runs, however, are intermediate or advanced in difficulty, so if you have some beginners traveling with you, their options may be limited.

The city of Vail is in Eagle County, west of Breckenridge. What is particularly interesting about this community is that it popped up because of the existence of the ski resort (unlike other similar ski towns like Aspen and Breckenridge).

This particular ski haven is the largest single mountain resort in the United States, featuring almost 5,300 acres of skiable terrain. It is also the second largest ski resort on the whole of the American continent.

Aspen, one of the most commonly recognized ski towns of Colorado, is situated in Pitkin County, located south of Eagle County and Vail. Its origins are rooted in mining, but today, it is considered a high-class tourist location.

There are four skiing and snowboarding areas between the towns of Aspen and Snowmass Village. Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, and Snowmass will appeal to more experienced skiers, while Buttermilk would be much more attractive to families vacationing with children and/or novice skiers.

The city of Durango is nestled close to the southwestern corner of the state. It has become famous as a prime location for all sorts of outdoor sports. During the winter months, the city boasts access to five ski areas. One of these is the famous Purgatory of Durango Mountain Resort.

Because Purgatory is located less than a half hour away from downtown Durango, it is a popular site for tourists and locals alike, as they have easy access to shops and restaurants for before or after their sporting activities.
Telluride is the county seat of San Miguel County and is north of Durango but still situated in the southwest portion of the state. The town grew up as a silver mining camp, but in 1972, the first ski lift was introduced by the Telluride Ski Resort, and the rest is history. The town is also known for its music and film festivals,

The ski runs there are fairly equally divided among advanced, intermediate, and beginner, so there is something for everyone.

These are just a few of the towns you might find appealing if you’re looking for a snowy adventure in Colorado–just be sure to know what time of skiing you’re looking for, and then find a match!

Every year, millions of North American families go through the agony of deciding who to spend Christmas Day with; his family or her family. Add children, divorce and remarriage into the mix and the logistics become even more of a nightmare.

Before my husband and I had children, it was rather easy. Like a lot of us, we alternated. One Christmas Day with his family, the following Christmas Day with my family. However, when we had our first child, things became a bit more problematic. To add to the predicament, my mother moved hundreds of miles away to an out of the way little town up north.

We decided to turn what some saw as a drawback into an adventure. Instead of driving five hours in potentially dangerous winter conditions, we opted to take the train. Our two and a half year old son was bursting with excitement about taking the train to visit his grandmother and surrounded himself with picture books of trains thinking that he could decide which one we would take. He settled on an old fashioned steam engine.

The trip ended up being well worth the time and effort. The scenery was spectacular, the company was terrific and we had a great time.

The next few years we spent Christmas Day with my husband’s family without issue.

Until the Christmas from hell.

Our children were now four and seven, and we had relocated about two hours away from my husband’s family due to work related matters.

The morning started out well enough. The kids were up at 5 to open their stockings, a tradition we started that allowed my husband and I a few more hours of shut eye, though of course we overheard every tip toe and every whispery giggle.

We had our traditional Christmas breakfast followed by presents, followed by…WHINING! AND MORE WHINING. I detest whining, but in all honesty, I couldn’t blame the kids for being cranky. It was Christmas and all they wanted to do was stay home with their new treasures. Instead, they had to get all dolled up to visit the family.

We went, reluctant kids in tow, to spend the afternoon at my sister-in-laws house. Once we got there, the kids perked up (more presents will do that), and we had a good time.

The drive home was another story. A two hour drive turned into a five hour white knuckle adventure courtesy of a major winter storm that dumped twelve inches of snow over the entire area in less than twelve hours. As we crawled homeward in whiteout conditions, grateful for the rear lights of the truck in front of us we decided right then and there, never again!

No more traveling on Christmas Day. It was time to start our own traditions! And we have. We always have the same breakfast, followed by finger foods throughout the day, and a full course dinner late in the evening. We watch movies, play board and video games and just have fun spending uninterrupted time together as a family.

If I had to choose one word to describe our Christmas Day it would be “relaxed”. No one needs to be in a hurry because we’re not going anywhere.

On one of our first journeys to Boshan, we went with our friends from the glass bottle and Storage jar factory. We flew into Qingdao Airport, not the nice new one, the original one very small and quaint where you carried you own luggage from the plane through the single customs gate. Everybody is very excited to have some ’round eyes’ coming to visit their city, as this was a long time ago.

We walk out of the airport back into the sunshine, and are greeted by our two young lady hosts along with their manager. They are like two characters out of a Jane Austin novel, and have clearly never had any foreign guests visit them before, as Boshan has only just been opened up to Westerners. They fuss and flap, like two old maids trying so hard to please us, trying to help us carry our heavy bags. This is the last stage of our tours of our factories, we have been in China a month already.

They are so proud, they have one of the earliest Toyoto People Carriers. We load our luggage into the back, and get into the carrier> It is a squeeze, the two girls, the factory manager and the driver, who smiles at us all the time.

They have booked us into the best hotel on the seafront, gone now, a great shame as it had great colonial character. It was left over from the time when this part of China was German, hence the Qingdao Beer, made from rice as there was no barley available, and where the recipe for Budweiser must have originated. The front was not built up then, and we enjoyed our breakfast overlooking the sea, the people out collecting shell fish in their buckets.Our hosts arrive and we all clamber into the vehicle, with great excitement for our adventure, and what an adventure it was to be!

The road, which later was to become the Expressway was just starting to be built, the girls had loaded us up with bottles of water, and carried on there conversation in text book BBC English with my female designer companion. They wanted to know about England and all about where we had been in China. I enjoyed looking out at the scenery and the many villagers both working on their lands and heaving their carts of stone. The donkey engine piston driven carts laden with stone, people raking, flattening the tarmac by hand. Our over laden truck bumped and bounced, creaked and groaned. The big driver picking the least bumpy path, if there was one, soon we were back on the old small winding road, as we started to climb towards Zibo or Boshan.

When we eventually arrived it was nearly 12 noon and our hosts were desperate for something to eat, and it had been arranged for us to start to visit the Cardboard Box Factory, to arrange the display box sizes, colour, our company design and costing. The manager, we soon found out, was an old friend of our driver and a lavish spread had been prepared with the very strong white spirit baijiu used for toasting ‘Gambe’, I told my hosts that we would ‘Gambe’ with ‘Coke’. Our hosts did not seem to mind. It was then that we all realised the ‘baijiu’ was being toasted by our Driver and in his friend, our host, not in the small traditional glasses but in the large drinking glasses. The reat of us were using for our ‘Coke’.

By the time our hosts tried to intervene it was too late, we looked at our hosts, our driver was singing, laughing and trying to stay in his chair all at the same time. The manager of the glass factory and I helped him out to the vehicle, where he tried to get into the driving seat. The girls and my companion had gone very ashen and all looked very worried. The manager and I decided to get him in the rear compartment and the manager decided to drive. This meant he was directly behind us with intermittent loud snoring then awakening and waving his thump in a ‘Thumbs Up’ gesture to all of us.

We had now reached the factory area, it was an area of old factories, slag heaps, smoke, steam and coal everywhere, reminiscent of the pictures of the Welsh Valley Towns in the early 1900’s.The industry had been based on coal, which could be dug up on the surface, and water, far removed from the Boshan of today with its clean air, hospital complexes, leisure and health facilities.

Once we were at the factory, we decided to help our driver into the offices with us, rather than leave him in the vehicle, as there steep drops around the factory. This is where the fun really started. We sat him at the directors desk in the padded leather swing chair, while we started trying to work out the moulds needed to make the bottles, the designs we had drawn up from Victorian Reference Books and 50’s American Designs. Then we continued to work out the designs for the hand made section of the plant and the mouth blown glass items. It had only recently introduced stable colours in Cobalt Blue and Emerald Green to our ranges, and we were trying to get the purple colour, and the bright orange and lemon yellow.

While all this was going on we were all trying to concentrate on our work, while our driver still intoxicated, was trying to telephone all his friends and have a loud and garbled conversation with them all, raising his thumb to all of us, when we looked across at him, when he was not this doing this he was singing and laughing. We worked well into the evening, and another car was arranged to collect us from the factory for our evening meal, and take us to a small hotel, which had no heating, and a large cockroach living in the bathroom. There was the smell of petrol spirit, where the hostelry had tried to remove our friend. It was obvious that our friend in the bathroom had not seen any guests for some considerable time. We were given the normal flasks of hot water, to make our tea, this was the only hot water, as there was no boiler working at the time. In the morning, it was obvious that a long time ago the hostelry had been a nice place to stay, with lots of overgrown roses and shrubs in the garden.

Our driver had miraculously recovered by the morning. He picked us up and we returned to the factory to continue our work. We returned back to our Qingdao safely, and said farewell to our hosts, who sent us off with the flurry of activity, similar to our arrival. Nothing was ever said about his interlude.. ever.

On my website there are other stories of my travels to our friends in factories all over the world, since 1971. The shop part of my website also offers the moulded glass bottles that were made at the factories I visited on my travels.

Blackpool has been described as one of Britain’s most popular holiday destinations; in addition it’s the perfect place for a family holiday. In fact, you’ll find it hard to pack it all into a week’s break; luckily most of the attractions in Blackpool are within easy walking distance.

There are of course many attractions to choose from, however, no visit to Blackpool would be complete without a trip to the famous Blackpool Pleasure Beach – the purpose built American style amusement park started in 1896. As the years have moved on, more new and interesting rides have continued to be added to this popular theme park, leaving you and your family with endless hours of fun on the rollercoaster’s.

Another great family outing is Blackpool Zoo, with over 1,500 animals and situated only a few miles from the sea front, it provides the perfect backdrop for a day of fun and learning. As it goes, Blackpool Zoo provides an enjoyable experience for all, demonstrating its role in the conservation of endangered species.

If the children still need to burn off some energy, then Blackpool Tower is definitely worth a visit; being able to entertain for hours on end as it houses an indoor adventure land, aquarium and 3D cinema. Furthermore, you can take a break from all of the action packed adventure and relax by catching a show in the evening, at the old-style Tower Circus theatre.

If you want to slow down a little, then a stroll along one of Blackpool’s famous piers would be ideal with there being three piers to choose from, with each one a little different from the next. The North Pier is perhaps quieter than the others and has a great old fashioned carousel for the kids. The Central Pier is home to the Big Wheel, providing great views over the sea front, and a fantastic family restaurant, should the hunger kick in amongst all of the fun. However, the energy starts to build again on the South Pier, which is geared for the adrenaline junkies with a purpose-built bungee tower.

If you choose to visit Blackpool at the end of August to the beginning of November, then at night you can take advantage of the best free attraction that is, The Blackpool Illuminations. This is an annual event that has been taking place since 1879, where it features sparkling lights strung up across six miles of the city, providing a glorious backdrop to an evening out in Blackpool.

As you can see, there is a never-ending stream of activities in Blackpool, making it an ideal location for a family holiday at any time of the year.

It is therefore useful to know that there are plethoras of Blackpool hotels available to choose from that will help ensure that you manage to fit all of the activities into your visit. So, why not book your next family trip and make Blackpool the destination?

There are pretty easy ways of learning Spanish and once you’re already successful at this, you would have expanded your repertoire of languages.

Spanish as an International Language

History reminds us that Spain once controlled the second-largest empire for more or less 400 years. As a result, its colonies have espoused the Spanish language and up until now, have utilized it considerably.

Economics and Politics

It is believed that Latin America will be the new European Union. With this, the said portion of America will now be among the richest economies the world has ever seen. If you educate yourself with the Spanish language, you are opening your doors towards the advantages that this development will bring.

Another very good motivation to learn to speak Spanish is the fact that it is an official language of many powerhouses such as the United Nations, European Union and Union of South American Nations. If you’re not into business opportunities, then how about the employment opportunities you can obtain from these groups?

Cultural Benefits

Shakira, Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Pedro Aldomovar, Picasso, El Greco, Salvador Dali, Benicio del Toro, flamenco, paella, Bakalao, and bullfighting, are among the other cultural contributions.

While these Spanish-speaking artists have their masterpieces translated into English, it will be nicer if you can actually sing and dance to their tunes and understand the lyrics perfectly. It will be a completely special feeling if you are able to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s works in Spanish or to enjoy Pedro Aldomovar’s films without using subtitles.

Indeed, some things get lost in translation!

The development of a home-based business is generally a very personal decision simply because it involves moving away from all that is familiar toward something that is profound in the amount of unanswered questions.

There is risk involved in going it alone. There is risk in being the one solely responsible for the administration of your own business. There is financial risk if the venture should fail.

However…

There are rewards in being your own boss. There are rewards in being able to answer only to yourself in matters of business. There are financial rewards should the venture succeed.

The growth of home-based business may well resemble the early American pioneers who ventured west looking for a better life. There was great struggle and not everyone made it, but those that did managed to work hard to carve out a life that was filled with both adventure and satisfaction.

The comparison is so appropriate for home-based business owners. In times past we may have only thought of home-based businesses as being a farmer or a rancher, but today it a field being pioneered by hearty souls in search of a better life for their families. Not everyone will make it, but for those that do it’s a journey filled with adventure and satisfaction.

Individuals are discovering that the very things they have enjoyed as hobbies may be moved to the forefront and given a new status as ‘business venture’. There are those who are making a living pet sitting, or providing freelance photography work. Individuals are writing from home or managing a home-based accounting firm.

Today’s business office may be the very room we once called a den. The overhead cost is significantly reduced, the environment is very comfortable and the hours are left up to the business owner.

Many are seeking just such a lifestyle as a means of liberating a 9-5 mentality. The business suit may be packed away and the hours one works may be scattered over a longer period of time or can be adjusted to allow for the intake of life.

Many home-based business owners will say it is very hard work, but the benefits to both individual and family make it a lifestyle more and more aspire to grasp.

The pioneering spirit is alive and well and is prospering behind the screen of millions of personal computers that are providing the link between a revolutionary thought and the realization of a 21st century hope for a better future.
