The Best Way To Carry Live Worms While Fishing

Do you fish with live worms? How do you transfer them from fishing spot to fishing spot? If you're a sedentary angler who doesn't move around much while fishing, this isn't a problem, but if you're like me and move from place to place, crossing the river as you fish, transporting live worms can be an issue. Just stuffing the container that live worms are purchased in, into your pocket or fishing vest simply doesn't cut it. The container ends up smashed, and the next thing you know there are loose worms all over the place.

The answer to this problem is amazingly simple. It's called a bait bag. You can make a bait bag yourself or purchase one it makes little difference, what's important is that you begin using one sooner, rather than later. A bait bag hangs off of your fishing vest, shirt, or belts and carries your live worms while fishing. The concept is as simple as it gets, and once you use one, you'll wonder how you ever fished without it.

Many anglers think that live worms will crawl out of the bait bag, but this isn't the case. They simply sit there, waiting to be used as bait. It's truly a beautiful thing. As I said, if you move around while fishing and fish with live worms, a bait bag should be employed. The convenience and amount of time you'll gain with your line in the water (where it should be) will amaze you. A bait bag is the most practical and convenient fishing accessory since the cooler in my opinion.

The Person Of The Year Is You

You can do it, (we can help!) Half the year has passed, and it is time to look back and see if it is valid.

After the senseless incident at VTech, and the Benoit deaths, one begins to have second thoughts. The person of the year is You, if only in context with the rest of the world. You can only live in co-ordination, cohesion and co-relation with the people around you to qualify as the person of the year, this year and every year, in your life and those of the people who matter to you and to whom you mean something.

People matter. Your family, your friends, your neighbors, co-workers, teachers, students, classmates, everyone matters. You cannot live alone, whether physically or in spirit. You cannot isolate yourself physically and mentally if you wish to make an impact on others or benefit from the impact that others make on you.

Nor can you have the world, your world, revolve around you. You matter to others just as you do to yourself.

One has to make sure that we matter to others more than what they matter to us, because, “the only one person who will be with you all your life is YOURSELF”. Others will come and go, and you will live on. If you pass on, you live on only if you have mattered to others, otherwise it doesn’t matter.

Internet Marketing Is A Lifestyle

My Internet Marketing Business is not just a business, it's a lifestyle.

Are you employed by a company?

They decided what days you will work. They decide what hours you will work and how much vacation time you will have each year. The employer dictates your life.

Do you own a brick and mortar business?

You have to be there certain days and you have to be open at a given time each morning, If you want to or not. Even if there is no business you have to remain until a given hour each day. Your business dictates your life.

If you decide you want to move to another location, that decision is limited by where you are employed or where your business is located. You can only commute so far before it is no longer practical. Your options are to quit your job, sell your business, or live within the area dictated by driving time to your job or business. The business dictates your life.

I have an Internet Marketing Business and my Lifestyle dictates my business.

My lifestyle determines when I will work at my Internet Marketing Business, what days I work, what hours I work. When I start work and when I am finished for the day.

I am free to choose where I live. If I decide I no longer want to live in one State, I would prefer to live in another State, I can move. My Internet Marketing Business moves with me. My lifestyle determines my Business.

I wake up on Wednesday and the weather is warm and sunny, a great day to go to the lake, I can go. My lifestyle determines my business.

If I want to take an extra week off because I have been working long hours, I can take it without having to ask permission. My lifestyle determines my Business.

If my family wants to go some place special this year and spend extra time, I do not have to say no because I need to get back to work. I just plug my laptop into the phone line and stay a little longer. My lifestyle determines my Business.

I work long hours and I work a lot of days each year. I am a hard boss to work for and very demanding. Yet my lifestyle demands a lot of freedom and my lifestyle determines my Business.

What I do not understand is how I survived and enjoyed life before my Internet Business.

I love this Lifestyle.

Recycled Wood - For a Greener Environment

Recycling, a process of converting scrap into reusable form has been term long associated with electronic, chemical, glass and textile items but recently. Recycled wood is the latest popular word among the responsible citizens who care for the environment and the future. The concept of recycled wood is becoming popular because of its environment friendly aspect. Apparently, reusing wood will lessen the demand for green wood and thereby save a lot of trees.

So how is the wood recycled? Mostly demolishers of old buildings and bridges carefully strip out the wood used in the structures before demolition. This salvaged wood is sold to the merchants, who then re-mill the wood by manually scanning it with a metal detector. This allows them to denial the entire piece of wood. This recycled wood or recycled timber is then often sold to the consumer as recycled flooring, beams and decking.

However, the use of recycled wood doesn't only stay limited to the construction aspect of a human living. Recycled wood furniture is becoming quite popular among the homemakers these days. Not only because the Recycled Furniture is environment friendly, but also because it is rather affordable. People are fast doing away with the stigma of second hand stores and looking towards recycled furniture for home decorations. To suit their personalities, they get the furniture coated with trendy colors.

Another use of recycled wood comes across when you plan to pick up windows for your home. Though glass windows cannot be recycled commercially, people are using recycled windows to build up complete news structures in their backyard. A greenhouse or a sun house made from recycled windows can not only give a new dimension to your home but also save a large part of your budget, you thought of spending on new construction materials.

With the increase in consciousness among the consumers, the producers are also gradually becoming innovative in the use of recycled wood. Woods are now not only recycled but are made water resistant, termite resistant before they are sent in to the market. Home decorators are now suggesting use of recycled wood in making balconies, court yards and garden paving.

Before purchasing the wood, you can always ask the supplier about the origin of the wood. Some suppliers may fail to answer the proper source from where the wood came from; in that case you can consider a different supplier. Breathing becomes much easier in your home when you know that you have saved a tree and contributed towards building a greener environment for the future generation.

Ford U.S. sales plunge 28 percent

DETROIT (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co (F.N) said on Tuesday U.S. sales fell 28 percent in June on an unadjusted basis, driven by steep declines in sales of trucks and SUVs under rising gasoline prices.

Sales dropped to 174,091 vehicles in June from 242,029 vehicles a year earlier, including all the automaker's brands, Ford said.

Ford shares fell more than 7 percent lower after the release of the monthly sales figures.

In the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury brands in June, car sales declined 12.1 percent, crossover sales were off 17.8 percent, SUV sales sank 54.7 percent and truck and van sales sagged 37.8 percent, Ford said.

Sales of Ford's F-Series trucks fell 40.5 percent to 38,789. There were 24 selling days in June, compared with 27 days a year earlier.

Ford, which has cut its production plans and capacity overall and increased production of cars and crossovers where demand is rising, said sales fell about 14.3 percent in the first half of 2008 to about 1.16 million vehicles.

"Consumer fundamentals and consumer confidence deteriorated as the first half unfolded," Jim Farley, Ford's head of marketing, said in a statement. "The economy enters the second half of the year with a notable absence of momentum and a high degree of uncertainty."

The automaker, which recently had discussions with representatives of billionaire investor Kirk Kerkorian, has warned about its 2008 results and abandoned a longstanding goal of returning to a profit in 2009.

Kerkorian holds a 6.5 percent stake in Ford and has expressed interest in providing additional support, if necessary, for the automaker to complete its restructuring plans.

Ford shares were down 35 cents, or 7.3 percent, at $4.46 on the New York Stock Exchange after reaching a 52-week low.
