Who was Jalapeno?  

Posted by the Writer

A Jalapeno was riding is Jalapeno-bike in the desert, admiring the cacti and sand all around. In the distance, he see's a silhouette. It was a Scorpion. The Scorpion hailed him down and asked, "Can I hitch a ride to town"? Jalapeno saw his disheveled shell and sand covered err... legs. Jalapeno then said, "Sure, for 5 mexican silvers, you can". The Scorpion hesitated then agreed. He got on Jalapeno's bike and they rode off. Before they reached town, the Scorpion whipped out his stinger and gave Jalapeno a big poke. The bike crashed and burned but not before Scorpion jumped off. As the bike explodes in the horizon, Scorpion gets picked up by a tinted black 4 wheel and speeds off.

humidor

Want to keep your cigars fresh? Get a humidor and the accompanying humidor accessories. At it's core, it is a cigar box with a humidifier (your humidor accessory) but it keeps your cigars humidified at a cool 70% so you can keep them as fresh as when you first got them. (I may be a big generous with my description but you get the point).

swim all the time

All through Fall you were itching to get in the pool but it was too cold. Now all through Winter, you couldn't get into the pool. It being frozen and all. Now Spring is coming and you can finally get in there again. But wouldn't it be nice to be able to swim most days of the year? All you need is a pool heat pump. When the water is warm, swarm the pool. Bad pun, bad pun.

BP monitors

What the heck is a digital sphygmomanometer? Some googling later, oh, it's a blood pressure monitor. I have one at home too. But we just call it a BP monitor. They're pretty great tools though when you have geriatrics in the house. But obviously they can't tell you what specifically is wrong with them since they only help you to rule out that it isn't something to do with their blood pressure. My grandmother was hypoglycemic once and she kept complaining of dizziness. When we checked her BP, it was normal. So we knew it wasn't low blood pressure. Which meant we had to move on to the next possibility. Anyway, we brought her to the hospital and it was sorted out.

the beginning of the supply chain  

Posted by the Writer

Having worked in a corporate, regular office job, type of environment, where you deal with design houses, I find that it can get pretty boring. Unlike the 4 months I worked at an events company where you deal directly with the supplier or manufacturer, that felt more satisfying because of the connections you make with the people who create stuff. Like wholesale catalog printing or keychain manufacturers. You get to see more of the world of business. Plus, you get better prices.

crowd control tools  

Posted by the Writer

Opening a night club? Organising an event an expecting a queue? Doing anything with large crowds? Well, crowd control stanchions are your friend. You've got retractable ones and even classic and majestic looking ones for hotels and other places. Nowadays they even have designer ones like black and yellow tape designs. Usually they're not meant to be easily movable so you have metal ones but being a price savvy society, manufacturers have now created metal plated plastic stanchions to save you money. You know, I used to use this when I was playing The Sims.

self defense

With the number of snatch thefts rising, women now have to play a proactive role in protecting themselves. They can take up self defense classes, equip defense spray or other small weapons, have a male accompany them to their cars or just be aware of their surroundings by not texting or talking on the phone. Every little bit helps. Just three days ago, two girls in my old neighbourhood were snatched and one of them sustained injuries. It's a bad neighbourhood but sometimes you wonder if they could've done something to deter the thieves and make themselves a less attractive target.

outsourcing jobs

Have a project that requires burning cd after cd but don't have the right equipment to do so? If you intended to do this on your own, you should really consider outsourcing. It's cd replication made easy with short lead time and at affordable prices. Who wouldn't want to free up their time to do other money making activities if they can afford it right?

tv in my room?  

Posted by the Writer

I'm repainting my room this weekend and I'm wondering if it will be a good idea to install a tv in the room. Since there isn't much space in my room anyway, I will need to spend on tv brackets, apart from the tv. I'm sure there are cheap but sturdy ones I can find online and I'll do the mounting myself. And voila, a tv in my room! But it isn't going to be easy when you share a room with your sibling and your mother disallows it.

dance recitals  

Posted by the Writer

Nothing like celebrating.. and motivating... your kid for their first public display of skills -- their dance recital. Believe it or not, consumers and retailers now buy/sell gifts for dance recitals. Who'da thunk that it'd be a win win for all. The buyer, usually the parents, would've provided sufficient motivation and all around goodness to the performers, their kids, who would in turn probably dance better. Retailers would've profited from their happiness. so everyone's happy.
