5 Tips to Replacing Your Social Security Card

Your Social Security number is attached to most of your personal and financial records. So losing your Social Security card is a very frightening experience. Even if you lose it, you might think that you’re okay because you can recite the number without a moment’s thought. But it is always important to have your card. This is because any employer may request it, or you want to use it for other reasons such as opening a bank account. In most cases, people safely store these cards until the next time someone asks for it. But what do you do when you have overturned your whole house, and you still cannot find it?

Technological advancements over the years have made the process of getting a replacement card quite simple. Most states in the United States require only your state ID, driver’s license or passport to apply for one. These are documents which can be used to authenticate your identity. However, it is essential to note that there are limits for card replacement. In a year, you are allowed to replace it up to three times. The maximum limit in your lifetime is ten times. After this, the regulations for replacement become stricter. This is why you must always be very careful when handling your Social Security card. In the event of misplacement or loss, you can follow the tips below to replace your card: (more…)

The perfect woman deserves to look good, feel great

There are so many Mother’s Day tributes out there but one stood out from the rest.

The video talks about how unaware most moms are about how their children see them—brave, selfless, caring and responsible.

Moms are often hard on themselves; completely unaware that to their children, husbands and loved ones, they are perfect. A mother may describe the perfect woman as “loving and caring” when, in fact, that is she(more…)

The flamboyance of gold to enhance the beauty of your buildings- Artificial Yellow Fall Aspens

If you are willing to improve the aesthetic appeal of your commercial area, you cannot achieve it simply by adding a few natural plants here and there. This way it could signify something quite contrary, especially with those plants that drop off their blossoms frequently. Also, you would have to water your plants on a regular basis, and it may add up to a few gallons of water in a year. Even then, your responsibilities wouldn’t come to an end. There is also a cost of lighting the plants, trimming them at regular intervals and also replacing the plant when it dies out. You cannot take a chance with the appeal of your commercial space, and as a result, you will have to bear all these expenses to keep the impression intact.

Turn that Junk Room into a Man Cave!

If you’re tired of your living room turning into a sports venue every weekend maybe it’s time to do something about it! With a bit of paint, elbow grease, and ingenuity you can turn a spare room into a man cave and move the team there whenever there’s a big game. Here are some tips for doing just that.

First of all, if you don’t have a spare room get creative. A basement or garage can work just as well, you’ll just need to add insulation and perhaps paneling. The main idea is to have a big enough space for an extra sofa and a chair or two because the only other furniture you’ll need is side tables and a TV. Of course, you’ll want to add some team decorations when you’re done, and a trip to the local fabric store or a visit to NFL Shop can take care of the decoration details!

First of all, empty the room. Then you’re free to paint the walls the color of your choice; either team colors or a neutral shade you can later decorate. The main idea is to have a clean slate and add details as you go.

For furniture, as mentioned above you’ll just need basic seating. A dorm fridge is a good addition and in a pinch can be used to hold the TV. Ideally you’ll want to mount the TV on the wall though so it’s easy to see from every seat.

If you have kids or teens you might want to get a couple of team beanbag chairs; if your favorite fan likes to entertain you can add a bar and stools. With a NFL Shop coupon you can add throws, glasses, and wall décor; if you follow more than one team you can dedicate one wall to each team.

As a bonus, if your kids participate in sports your man cave is the perfect place to display their trophies. That way they’ll feel like one of the gang when it comes to game day!

While we love the holidays, how do we keep our skin healthy, exposed to what seem to be staples of our culture’s usual celebration? (more…)
