The Ford Mustang Still Lives

The Ford Mustang stole the hearts of a nation and hearts around the world when it was unleashed in the year of 1964. Built with more than enough muscle to go around and reliability that would last for many generations to come. The chrome pony became a legend that has been easily recognized as belonging to one of, if not the most popular and loved muscle machine on the road.

The beauty of the Ford Mustang is the versatility for both men and women of all ages and social status. The vehicle was, and still is easily customizable for sports enthusiasts that enjoy running the race tracks or just looking like it is ready to take on any vehicle on or off the road. For women, the sleek but powerful machine has been painted in a variety of colors ranging from fluorescent pink to purple with all the bells and whistles that would make it a girl’s best friend. This vehicle is still one of the world’s most cherished gifts that can be given for birthdays, Christmas and on many other occasions.

Climbing behind the wheel of this vehicle is like climbing into a time machine and traveling back in time when soda pops cost a nickel and high school sports team jackets meant something to the players and their girlfriends. Many children spent years looking forward to coming of age so they could inherit the family Mustang and many of those children maintained the Mustangs and passed them on to their children, who then passed them on to theirs as well. There are few vehicles that have lived the life that these have and are still living on the road.

The introduction of this classic vehicle marked the beginning of a whole new level of automotive technology that would change the world of auto manufacturing forever. The overwhelming popularity opened the doors for Ford’s 1965 introduction of the bigger engine, AC accelerators and much-needed reverse lights. But it did not stop there.

The Corvette, made by Chevrolet, was the strongest contender and had to be taken down a few notches to show the world just how powerful Ford vehicles actually were. The hammer fell and the designer and racing driver famously known as Carroll Shelby decided to step up to the plate, which resulted in the Cobra / GT series of famous cars that took the world by storm.

Long live the Mustang and what it means to the world.

If you own a car, auto coverage policy is one of the most important things. There are three options to choose from when you want insurance for your car. These options include: buying from independent agents, buying from captive agents and buying online.

If prefer personal services and you like face to face relationships, then it may be good to buy a policy from an agent. There are many agents in the market and you need to choose the one you feel comfortable with. Some of the agents are known as captive agents while others are known as independent agents.

Independent agents are those who sell insurance for various companies while captive agents are those who sell insurance for only one firm. Below are some of the features of agents you need to know about to help you choose the right agent quickly and easily.

Buying from captive agents

If you are dedicated to a specific insurance firm, it is a good idea to buy from a captive agent. The captive agents deal with only one insurance company meaning they know all the different insurance options the company offers. Therefore, they can help you select the right package depending on your needs.

Buying from independent agents
If you want to check out on the different insurance policies offered by different insurance providers, go for independent agents. Because they deal with different insurance companies, they can help you get a better rate. They will also not try to persuade you to buy one specific product meaning they will tell you the right things about all the insurances.

Therefore, you should buy from independent agents if you need inexpensive coverage for your car. However, since they are under commission, they may be in a hurry to make a deal as soon as possible.

Buying online

The third option is to avoid insurance agents completely and buy car insurance directly from the company online. However, with this option you have to do most of the work yourself. You have to do your own research on the insurance providers, what options they offer, and the rates of their insurance.

It is a good to buy auto insurance online if you don’t have enough time and want to get a cheap car insurance since it allows you to save you from paying commission to an insurance agent. If you are not sure about your car insurance needs, then buying insurance online without the help of an agent is not a good option.

Hair Dryers Are Cooler Than You Think

A while back, my hair dryer decided to give up on life. I don’t blame it – I’ve had that darn thing since college (thanks, Mom!). So, I thought I would just pop online and order up a new one and that would be it. Boy was I wrong. There isn’t just one type of hair dryer out there – nope. There are different types and different features and all kinds of things like that. So, I have to put on my nerd hat and do a little research before buying one – and now I’m going to share what I’ve learned with you dear readers.

glad I didn’t have to buy one of these!

For many decades, the hair dryer has been the appliance of choice for men and women everywhere looking to go from freshly showered wet locks to dry, styled hair. Despite the hair dryer’s popularity in households across the globe, the appliance is still often misused by consumers everywhere. Luckily for you, I have gathered all the hair dryer facts I could find to teach you more about how to properly use this common household item.

Wattage vs. Heat

When purchasing a hair dryer, there are two things you should take note of: its wattage, and its temperature settings. Despite new hair dryers boasting their hotter and hotter settings, we believe it’s wattage that really counts. Dryers with between 1300 and 1875 watts are considered good for personal use. However, searching for a dryer with high heat settings is not necessary for home use, as it can damage your locks if used improperly.

Different Types of Hair Dryers

On the market today, there are hundreds of different hair dryers available for personal and commercial use, and while hair dryers may seem simple, they are actually being designed with better, more advanced technology to provide you with healthier, easier hair care.

Ionic hair dryers are one of the biggest advances in the hair care world. Using millions of tiny, negative ions, these types of hair dryers not only do their job by using heat and force to dry your hair, but they produce these ions which help to break down the water molecule. (Spoiler alert: I bought one of these and can say that I have the best ionic hair dryer to replace my dead old one and I love it!) However, be sure not to misuse the product, as with ionic hair dryers, they do not need to be used for long periods of time. Due to their nature of drying hair, overuse of the device can actually cause more harm to your hair than help.

Another advancement in hair dryers comes in the way of ceramic dryers. Ceramic dryers work by emit infrared heat, which is non-damaging to human hair. If you would like the technology of an ionic dryer combined with the technology of a ceramic dryer, a tourmaline hair dryer may be your best choice: tourmaline dryers produce infrared heat as well as negative ions, giving you a very fast, gentle dry with minimal damage to your hair.

Hair Dryer Attachments

Although hair dryer attachments such as diffusers used to be popular years ago, today very few people tend to use them. However, they are still very useful for all types of hair, not just curly or wavy. Diffusers work to distribute the heat over a larger area, reducing the heat concentrated in a single area, which in turn reduces the damage done to your hair.

Concentrators are also important attachments to your hair dryer. Concentrators allow focused air output on a single area, which allows you to control frizz levels, and helps with styling parts of your hair.

The Importance of Protectants

No matter what kind of hair dryer you choose to use, it is always important to include hair protectants in your daily hair drying routine. All hair dryers cause damage over extended use, but the use of protectants, such as serums, sprays, and lotions, can reduce the damage significantly.

Using the information above, you should be well-equipped to pick the right hair dryer for your needs, as well as keep your hair in healthy condition for years to come.

Quick Fitness Tips For Gamers Like Me

If you are a gamer, then you probably spend a lot of time in front of your computer or gaming station for hours every day. During this time, you will probably be stationary with the exception of your hands and you are most likely consuming thousands of calories in soft drinks, potato chips and other snacks every day. This is an extremely unhealthy lifestyle which will negatively impact your health in a matter of months and years. So, in order to combat the inevitable health risks from this lifestyle, we will now look at a few fitness tips that will help you become healthier.

The first tip is that instead of drinking a ton of soft drinks, juices and eating unhealthy snacks while you’re playing your favorite game, you should swap these unhealthy foods for healthier ones. Instead of potato chips, you should make your own sweet potato chips that are healthier and even taste better that regular potato chips. Also, instead of eating a lot of candies and other snacks, you should snack on fruits like strawberries, blueberries, bananas and other fruits while you game. Then, you should make all natural juices or simply stick to water instead of soft drinks which are full of unhealthy amounts of sugar and stimulants.

Next, you should also strive to eat healthier meals since most gamers tend to eat fast foods or frozen foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It will only take a few minutes to grill some chicken and pair it with a salad or make a simple sandwich from lean turkey, avocados and tomatoes. It is essential that you get lots of lean protein in your diet as well as vegetables as this will not only make you feel better but will undoubtedly improve your gaming performance.

In addition to eating healthier, you should also strive to exercise for at least 45 – 60 minutes per day. Exercise has numerous benefits on the mind and body and will even help improve your thinking, co-ordination and overall wellbeing. It may be difficult for you to start exercising, but you will soon discover that when you exercise, the benefits to your mind and body will transfer onto your gaming skills and abilities.

There are lots of ways that you can exercise and if you don’t want to leave your home, then you can simply purchase a few home workout DVDs. Some great programs include Insanity, Body Beast, p90X, Turbo Fire, 21 day fix etc. In addition to getting in some cardio every day, you should also try to do a weight lifting program a few days per week. All you have to do is buy a few adjustable weights and dumbbells and simply do a full body routine about three times per week.

In closing, we have just looked at a few fitness tips for gamers that are quite easy to put into action. Sure, it will be difficult at first, but you will feel better, look better and perform better when gaming. So, what do you have to lose?
