A business credit card would allow you to purchase items on the card and then later pay them off, the difference between business cards and credit cards is the fact that credit cards can be used anywhere, and business cards can only be used at the business it is specified for.

Businesses sometimes offer a small business credit card, for those up and coming new business that need their own credit card.

Flower Gifts

Giving flowers has been a tradition all over the world for many years. People give flowers for different reasons – to show their love for someone, to show appreciation, or to show sympathy. Many even believe that flowers can cast a certain kind of spell to anyone receiving them – they could speak a thousand words so that the sender never has to say a thing. So if you're thinking of a particular gift to give your special someone, flowers would be an excellent choice.

You can find different varieties and colors of flowers anywhere, regardless of the season. Flower gifts are available in flower shops and gardens in different arrangements, sizes and price ranges. But before you buy those lovely roses or tulips, be sure to take into account the two things you bought to consider when buying:

First, the occasion. When buying flower gifts, you always consider what the occasion or celebration is all about. If it's a birthday, for example, you can buy 'birth flowers.' January birthday celebrants should be given snowdrops and carnations; February celebrants should be given primroses and violets, and so on.

Secondly, find florists that offer package deals with reasonable prices. Be sure to thoroughly inquire about their ordering, delivery and payment systems, packaging and flower arrangements, flower varieties, and sizes and colors before buying. Try as many shops as you can until you find the flowers you're looking for. Ask out some friends about what flower shops they can recommend.

If you do not have much time, the best way to find and buy flower gifts is though the internet. You can browse thousands of flowers in a variety of arrangements, colors and packages in just a few minutes. You can even search for the exact flowers you want and set a limit on the price range. The only downside to this kind of shopping is that you do not get to see and touch the flowers personally to check for freshness and overall condition. …

The Best College Graduate Gifts

Your son or daughter has graduated high school and now you are looking for something to give them as a special token of your pride. What can you buy them?

First, the best choice is money. This allows them to spend the money on planning their after high school career or college. Perhaps they need a new computer, new car or maybe they will just use it for booze – that is the risk that comes with a money gift.

PDAs are very popular and very useful. Buying one for a graduate allows them to store images, movies and music on it, as well as data for college. This can help make their workload and scheduling much, much easier.

What would college be without a computer? So why not get them one. Nearly every college student has one, and a laptop computer will give them the ability to use it in class, without the need to take down notes by hand and then type them out.

A digital camera will let your future college student take pictures of their college experience and send it to you by email. This will allow you to still see your son or daughter, even if they are a thousand miles away.

It is very difficult to take notes in class without knowing shorthand, so why not give them a digital recorder that allows them to record what the instructor says, and then plug it into their laptop and have the computer type out what was said. It is a handy note taking tool.

Phone cards will allow the college-bound to keep in touch with you. Giving them phone cards means that they do not have to pay for the long distance call to you. On that same note, buy them a cell phone, pre-paid, so that they can keep in touch with you from anywhere.

A commemorative gift, such as their diploma in a special frame with a picture of the two of you can be a great gift for the college student. When they are off in college, they can look at that and be reminded of home. This also works for a variety of other sentimental gifts you may want to buy.

No matter what you buy your future college-bound child, make it special because it will not only help them succeed in college, but also it will remind them of home and you. The last thing you want is for your son or daughter to forget you! …

Just How Grateful Can You Be?

This is the season for Gratitude.

It’s easy to be thankful, to feel gratitude, for things we receive that we recognize immediately as gifts.

Can you also be grateful for whatever comes into your life that appears in the form of a challenge?

A present that someone sends you, wrapped or unwrapped, that you get to open and go “Oooh” and “Aaah” easily evokes gratitude, especially when it’s unexpected and something you’ll enjoy.

It’s easy to be grateful for having a warm home, for having plenty of food, and loving companions, whether human or animal — if only you remember to appreciate the “little” things that are not so little at all.

The not-so-easy part is gifts come in unexpected forms with unexpected qualities that challenge you.

Such a gift may seem harsh or uncomfortable at first.

Such a gift may push your buttons, evoke fear or anxiety, anger, or even jealousy.

“What?” you ask in astonishment.

“Was that truly a gift when so-and-so was rude to me?

Was it a gift when I discovered that my car wouldn’t start or the person who was supposed to meet me for dinner didn’t show up and didn’t call?

How can it be a gift when someone bullies me or gossips about me?”

We may not recognize it as a gift, at first, when we are treated badly or when something happens that pushes our buttons,.

We may be so caught up in our emotional response that all we can do in that moment is feel our denser emotions surging.

Only in retrospect may we recognize that the experience is an opportunity for gratitude.

Every experience is an opportunity for gratitude.

Stop and consider. Somewhere inside each situation a gift awaits you. And not only one gift, but perhaps even two or three… or more.

These are what I call Seeds of Equivalent Benefit.

These “seeds” are gifts that may need time to grow. They may be hidden, at first, so tiny that your eyes cannot see them, but their presence is certain.

  • Perhaps the gift is to discover who your real friends are.
  • Perhaps the gift encourages you to find your inner courage and to step forward into that courage in a new and more powerful way.
  • Perhaps the gift is an opportunity for you to put aside something that you are strongly attached to in order to discover the freedom of non-attachment.
  • Perhaps the gift is to learn to trust that the Universe (God, Goddess, All That Is) is right there taking care of you, if only you open yourself to receive these blessings.

These are only a few of the true gifts of life’s challenges.

When we open our hearts through gratitude to receive them, we begin to find joy and peace within ourselves, as well as our inner strengths.

To discover hidden gifts, stop the chatter in your head about how terrible the situation is or was, and open yourself and your heart to gratitude.

When you say,…

Different Uses For Cellophane Wrap

It’s clear, it’s handy, and it’s wrapped around my candy. The cellophane wrap is one of the most versatile discoveries of the 1900s. Intended to be a protective textile, the cellophane has since found application in many industries as a packaging material and as a semi-permeable film.

Many people mistake cellophane for plastic. The truth is the two materials are of completely different composition. Plastic is a synthetic or semi-synthetic polymer. In contrast, cellophane is a sheet of regenerated cellulose. The only thing that cellophane and plastic have in common is that both materials are usually made into transparent sheets.

History of cellophane

It was a Swiss chemist named Jacques E. Brandenberger who in the turn of the 20th century developed the first cellophane. He intended the material to be a water-resistant film to protect textile. He experimented on a substance known as viscose to coat cloth, but to his dismay the fabric turned out too stiff and unsuitable for any practical use.

Peeling off the film layer afterwards, he realized that its properties of flexibility and transparency can be used for other purposes. Brandenberger worked on perfecting his invention and in 1912, he patented cellophane. The term was derived from the words “cellulose” and “diaphane”, which means transparent.

US candy manufacturers began importing cellophane that same year to use it for candy wrapper. In 1924, the chemical company DuPont initiated the development of moisture-proof cellophane. By 1927, after a company chemist named William Hale Charch succeeded in moisture-proofing the cellophane, many industries worldwide embraced the new material and began using cellophane for their various packaging needs.

Uses for cellophane

One of the earliest applications for cellophane wrap is for packaging and storage of food products. This specific function of the cellophane remains to this day, even though some industries have turned to plastic for the same purpose. Nevertheless, the use of cellophane as a packaging material extends beyond food products. Almost all consumer products are able to utilize cellophane for packaging.

There are various other applications for cellophane. Adhesive tapes, such as 3M’s Scotch tape, use cellophane as a base for their products. There are those who use printed cellophane for gift wrapping. Cellophane is also used as a semi-permeable barrier for battery cells.

Beauty spas employ cellophane wrap for hair and cellulite treatments. In the realm of medicine, cellophane is also used as semi-permeable tubing for dialysis. With such an impressive track record, people will continue to utilize cellophane as an important material for industry.…

Women Being Men

As a life coach, the # 1 problem I see women make in relationships is: WOMEN BEING MEN.

Are you dragging your man around?

I was out to dinner one night with my girlfriend, Tammy. As we were leaving the restaurant, she casually mentioned, "I'm dragging Steve to see The Way of the Peaceful Warrior with me tomorrow night."

It appeared she was using her masculinity to initiate, organize and "drag" her boyfriend to the movie. My Queen instinct felt an imbalance.

We women spend an intense amount of our time DOING, which is using masculine energy. We are so highly involved in the masculine activities of working, accomplishing, money making, providing, protecting, problem solving, etc., that we get used to surviving and even succeeding in the masculine mode. Our masculine abilities serve us well at work or with young kids, not in romance.

We are taught to revere, trust and even idolize the masculine, action-oriented way of doing life. The result is, we have gotten out of practice at being feminine, and we have also lost our faith in its power and purpose.
The truth is …

Men are great at being Kings all on their own. A King is not attracted to his Queen's masculine side.

So when a woman is masculine with her man (initiating / directing / conquering) OR if she plays mommy with her man (providing / protecting him like he's a child) a man has 2 options:

1) to have like he is in competition with another man or

2) to be weakened like a little boy or

Back to the story …

Well sure enough, I got a call at 6:30 pm on Friday from Tammy, inviting ME to see the movie with her.

I asked, "What had happened to your boyfriend?" She shared a variety of unpleasant exchanges that occurred between them … everything from him saying he could not go "because he had to work late," to "maybe he could", "okay, hurry up and get ready and let's go. "

After the passive-aggressive rollercoaster ride, her joy was completely lost in sharing the movie experience with him. (Not to mention the irony that the movie was called, The Peaceful Warrior!)

When a woman is masculine with her man, she can expect him to be competitive or resentful. The results that occur are that men will ever look elsewhere or give up and shut down emotionally.

A man will resent the woman who he thinks disempowered him. He typically can demonstrate this with his anger or withholding himself from his woman or domineering over her. We see Tammy's boyfriend did all of the above.

# 1 Answer for a Woman's Success in Romance:

When you want to have chemistry with a man, DO NOT BE A MAN!

Our role as Queens is to be a powerful, feminine, confident and a successful counterpart to our King (or the King you're wanting to attract!) Femininity includes being insightful, creative, spiritual, intuitive, receptive, non-linear .. …

A Psychological Profile Of Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix

Biographical Overview

If ever there was a guitar player who redefined this instrument for anyone who has ever played it before or since, it would be Jimi Hendrix. Jimi’s exceptionally creative, powerful, psychedelic licks helped him reach a musical standard that has never been duplicated, and in his four short years as a recording star he established himself as a musical legend without equal. His performances at the Monterrey Pop Festival which established him as a star, and later at Woodstock were some of the most awe-inspiring in the history of live music, and history will remember Jimi Hendrix as one of the most influential albeit enigmatic and mysterious musicians who ever graced the stage.

Jimi Hendrix was born John Allen Hendrix on November 29, 1942 to James (Al) Hendrix and Lucille Jeter in Seattle, Washington. Jimmy’s father Al, who would be his primary parental force throughout Jimi’s life, was in the Army when Jimi was born. Fearing that Al would go AWOL to go see his newborn son, the army placed Al in the stockade on “general principle” where he stayed for over a month until the army saw fit to release him.

Back in Seattle Jimi’s mother Lucille quickly grew tired of being a single parent and virtually abandoned Jimi during his first few years of life. Jimi, then known as Johnny, first lived with Lucille’s family, but was then placed with a woman named Mrs. Walls who took Johnny in and cared for him.

Al was finally released from the Army in 1945 when Jimi was three years old. Upon arriving back in the United States, Al regained custody of Johnny and promptly named him James after himself. Originally Jimi was known as “Buster” by his family, but at the age of 6 everyone began calling young James “Jimi” which would stick with him for the rest of his short life. Between the ages of 3 and 6 Al raised Jimi with the assistance of Lucille’s Sister Dolores, and Jimi became very close to her children who were being raised in the same home.

When Jimi was 6, his mother briefly came back into Jimi’s life when Al and Lucille attempted a reconciliation. Because there was little work in Seattle at the time, Al joined the Merchant Marines, and while he was away Lucille returned to her old carefree lifestyle, and was kicked out of the housing the Hendrix’s were residing in for having inappropriate male visitors. Upon his return from the Merchant Marines, Al and the family reunited, and Lucille eventually had another son Leon in 1948, who had Asian features and was clearly not Al Hendrix’s son. Lucille eventually had another son Joey by still a different father, and Al eventually divorced Lucille in 1950 as a result of her lack of stability.

Over the next few years Al raised Jimi and Leon with the help of his relatives, and Jimi briefly had another maternal figure “Edna” enter his life, who he grew …
