Preventing Pet Hair Issues In Your Car

So we make them a part of our families and families travel. To the park, to the beach or to the bush; every man, woman, child and dog piles into the car for the trip. The memories we make with our pets last a lifetime. And, unfortunately, so does the pet hair wedged in the car upholstery. If dogs have a downside, it’s shedding their coats frequently! Removing pet hair from your car’s upholstery can be a laborious and painstaking process but we’ve compiled these tweezer-free tips to get rid of the pet hair in your car and to protect your car’s upholstery from pet related incidents and accidents

Tip 1: Save yourself the hassle of spending hours tweezing Fido’s fur out of your car and give your dog’s coat a good brush out before getting into the car. An extra brushing before a car trip will remove excess pet hair that would otherwise end up lodged in your car’s carpets. The type of brush you use may also make a different to how much fur it collects; if you have a particularly hairy dog, invest in a FURminator, specifically designed to thin out a dog’s undercoat and loose fur.

Tip 2: Buy a Petrider or similar seat cover for your car. They keep fur (among other things like sand, dirt and water) off your car seats and can be easily removed, washed and stored until the next time you want to take your pooch to the beach.

Tip 3: It’s important to keep your pets contained when they are travelling in a vehicle, so harness or crate your pets in transit. Not only will using a crate for travel reduce your car’s exposure to pet hair and other pet related dirt and smells (wet dog anyone?) but it will also keep your pet safer during travel.

Tip 4: Get a pet cleaner such as the Bissell Pet Eraser. This is the proper tool for the job, a small hand held and powerful vacuum that will remove hair without an issue from seats, carpets or anywhere else it may have got. These are also excellent around the house. 

There are enough hazards on the road without adding a distracting dog or frantic feline to the mix. Accidents do happen, so it’s also important to make sure you’re protected by car insurance. Some comprehensive car insurance providers even provide pet insurance as an optional extra with their car insurance. Make sure you compare insurance providers and select the provider who best suits your needs and budget. Happy travels!

Why tenant guarantor loans?

When guarantor loans were first introduced to the UK the rule was that your guarantor had to be a homeowner and if they weren’t you would be shown the door that was the harsh reality but times have changed. Guarantor loan industry has changed because of the difficulty in the current climate to buy home making it increasing tougher to find friends or family who are homeowners. Now there are a range of guarantor loan lenders that offer non-homeowner guarantor loans and welcome tenants to be your guarantor.

Borrowing With a Tenant Guarantor

The only drawback to your guarantor being a tenant is that it may restrict you to how much you want borrow as lenders feel comfortable lending more if you guarantor is a homeowner. Even if you guarantor is a tenant you can still borrow a significant amount so please check each direct guarantor lenders individual page and click through to get more details about how much can be borrowed.

Tenant guarantor loans are available UK residents and the age of your guarantor may vary between lenders but they must have a good credit history as this will be checked. The tenant guarantor must have credible income from employment in the event you are unable to pay and must be happy to sign any agreements which involve yourself and the lender.

Why do Guarantor Lenders used to only lend to Homeowners?

The thought process for lenders behind this is that Homeowners are seen as a less of a risk as they are seen as a good lending prospect, as a Homeowner they would have had to demonstrate to mortgage company that they have a good credit history. A guarantor who is a homeowner is also more likely to cover cost of any payments that the borrower doesn’t make. In unlikely situations the homeowner can always sell their property if they are desperate to rise the required funds or even remortgage. When deciding on who to ask to be your guarantor we would suggest that your guarantor is a homeowner as this would improve you chances of being accepted.

So yeah, I use Kratom.

So for those that don’t know, in 2015 I was in a major car accident where I was hit in the rear at high speed by an idiot who was texting while I was sat at a traffic light. In the accident I received a huge back injury where 2 discs were fractured in my lower back. It was a tough time and in truth I never healed properly.

Each year when winter came around I would suffer pain in my back, this year has been particularly brutal and since the accident I have been prescribed many pain killers such as Voltaren, Vikadin, Mobric, Celemex and more… Between building up a tolerance and damage to my Kidneys and stomach ulcers caused by these drugs I have been forced to look into other options.

Looking online I came across a lot of people saying the same thing. People were all stating the same issues I had with pain killers as well as other problems such as addiction, cost, availability and Doctors not listening to patients needs.

People are all different and we all have different needs, yet the world of big pharma are all prescribing the same things to us. There has to be a better solution I thought, and I think I found it.

Kratom is a plant from southern asia, it’s used as a legal high in places such as Thailand by locals and tourists.

This is what I use, I used kratom for pain and it’s been brilliant! For the first winter since my accident I have been able to do the things I want, without being in pain. Even day to day tasks like walking from the grocery store to my car for the first time in years I have been able to walk without problems. 

The strain I use is Bali Red. I also used Maeng Da as well as Bali White but I found Bali Red to be best for my personal needs. I don’t feel high or euphoric when I take it either which was a concern I had, I get the pain killing benefits and that’s it.

I cannot be happier with what I have found, a natural solution. No more pain. No more kidney problems or stomach ulcers either.

Kratom has helped me get my life back, and I don’t care what people think.

Electrical Safety Advice

When installing items such as out door lights, or working on new construction sites you need to pay attention to safety.

Electric is part of all our every day lives, but it’s also extremely dangerous to those working with it and those around you. Every year 10,000’s of deaths are caused by electrical failure, fires causes by electric installations and electrocutions from professional and DIY enthusiasts. 

We have put together this advice with the intention of raising awareness. Please, when working with electric stay safe. 

Safety Advice

Remember to switch off the mains power at the consumer unit.

Before starting any electrical work, stay safe – get yourself a socket tester (or voltage tester for lighting circuits). They confirm whether circuits are dead and safe to work on.

Check all finished work with a socket tester (or voltage tester for lighting circuits) before using.

For your safety, these products must be installed in accordance with local Building Regulations. If in any doubt, or where required by the law, consult a competent person who is registered with an electrical certification scheme. Further information is available online or from your local authority.

All new and modified installations must comply with the latest IEE Wiring Regulations. Either use an electrician registered with the self certification scheme prescribed in the regulations, or if you carry out the work yourself, you must notify your Local Authority Buidling Control Department to get your work inspected and tested.

Never take risks with electrical safety. Before you start any type of electrical work, you must follow these following safety precautions:

  • Switch off the main power at the consumer unit/fuse box. Isolate the circuit you plan to work on by removing the circuit fuse. Put this in your pocket to avoid accidental replacement.
  • Or switch off the breaker and lock it if you can.
  • Attach a note to the unit to advise you are working on the circuit.
  • Check the circuit is dead with a socket tester or voltage tester/meter for lighting circuits.

If you are unsure of what you are doing at any point, seek professional advice.

Using SEO to boost Search Engine Traffic to your Website!

Proper search engine optimization (SEO) is vital to the success of any site on the World Wide Web today – any webmaster or developer can tell you that. There are however several different processes that can be utilized when optimizing your website for search engine indexing; the method (or methods) that you choose to take advantage of are solely up to you.

Keyword Research is important! Use keywords in the titles of your web pages. You know that little blue bar at the top of your screen? Keywords placed there can help you page get noticed even more than keywords placed in the body of a page; though this doesn’t mean that you should refrain from using keywords in the body, as well – in fact, it’s just the opposite. Keywords work well in both the title and body of any webpage, and they should always be used in order to maximize your site’s exposure.

– Take advantage of the fact that web users commonly misspell words when searching on the internet, and try to use a couple common misspellings of your chosen keywords within your content, as well. This way you can even attract the users who have less than perfect spelling or grammar.

-Make sure to link all of your individual web pages to your main home page. The more links a particular page has going to it, the higher it will be displayed within any relevant search engine results. However, you’ll want to make sure that all of these internal and external hyperlinks are relevant to the type of content you provide, or your search engine ranking may actually go down.

-Create as many pages as possible, even if each page has only a short paragraph or two. The more pages your site has, the more likely it is to be found by users who are surfing the internet. But again, make sure that these pages actually pertain to the rest of your website’s content, or you may find it harder to attract genuine visitors.

-Use a reliable web hosting service. When it comes to the functionality of a webpage, there is nothing more damaging than downtime caused by a server malfunction or power outage with your web hosting company. And if your site is down when the search engine spiders come by in order to index your site, you’ll be out of luck – they only index the sites which they can actually access at that time.

Exclusive: Rouge “Dream” Ensemble by ala Mood

Jori Watler has always been a great friend to Codie and I. She is, simply, family. So, when she offered to create an exclusive Rouge version of her gorgeous “Dream” Ensemble, we were over-the-moon excited, but not at all surprised by her generosity.

The “Dream” Rouge Ensemble includes necklace, rings, cuffs – and as an added incentive – the matching earrings. The only place this set is available is at the Rouge Boutique and 50% of the proceeds benefit the Rouge Tiers fund.

The Rouge sim is owned by CodeBastard Redgrave and was designed and built by Eshi Otawara. Rouge is home to the CodeRed Lounge, Boudoir Rouge Gallery Walk, Rouge Boutique and the Mechanized Life main store.

Designers, interested in the Rouge Affiliate Program? Contact me for more information about offering your items in the Rouge Boutique. Many thanks to Jori for her continued friendship and patronage. Visit ala Mood for more of Jori’s amazing designs.

Rouge is in need of some patrons

As you may or may not know, the Rouge sim is a living piece of art created by Eshi Otawara. The sim itself is financed directly by sales from MechanizedLife.Com, my gears and gadget shop, located in a small portion of Rouge. However, in those difficult economic times, Rouge has grown costly to maintain, this is why we are doing this call to patrons. If you love art and if you love Rouge, here’s how you can help:

– Donate: There are little donation boxes scattered all around Rouge. Drop something in it, it’s always appreciated. You can also donate directly to CodeBastard Redgrave inworld if you can’t find a donation box.

– Buy art: My Boudoir Rouge portraits are on display all around Rouge. You can buy those unique copies of those artworks inworld, and contribute to Rouge’s tiers this way. You have the choice to keep the piece on place for display, or bring it home with you.

– Party: Want to have a very special place to celebrate your rezday or birthday, or any special occasion? You can rent Rouge for any event. It’s free, but we suggest a voluntary contribution of 5000L per night. We provide the Shoutcast stream, and you can bring your own DJ, or we can find one for you.

– Designers: Want to contribute to the fashion life of Rouge? You can design something to be sold exclusively on the Rouge sim, and take a split agreement with us, which would help for tiers contribution. Contact Gabby Panacek or CodeBastard Redgrave for such inquiries.

– Buy gears: One other way to contribute is to buy from the MechanizedLife shop on Rouge, or my Boudoir Rouge series of poses. It is one way of getting quality stuff and donating to the tiers fund.

– Regular donations: If you want to contribute to the monthly fees, please feel welcome. Any amount given on a regular basis entitles you to receive special thank you gifts from Codie. We are also thinking of a Rouge Wall of Fame to display the names of our generous donators.

Remember that Rouge is a non-profit, and exists solely for promoting SecondLife arts like photography, music, and building. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
