Make Apple Cider Drink

Add a teaspoon of honey to a glass of water and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Give it a good mix and add mint if you like. Drink it in the morning to cut fat and get healthy. To make it extra refreshing, add some ice cubes.

In the refrigerator

If you don’t plan on chugging down your macarons on the first day itself, it’s best to place them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge where they will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

Before serving, though, you’ll need to take the macarons out 20 minutes beforehand. Macarons taste the best when eaten at room temperature.

Splice wires

Using a piece of heat shrink is a very effective, seamless way of splicing two wires. Here is how you use a heat shrink in wire splicing. First, cut a piece of heat shrink and enter it into one of the wires. Make sure the heat shrink is far away from the splicing area. Now then splice the wires and hold them steady with the help of scotch tapes. Then solder the exposed parts. After soldering, bring the heat shrink on the exposed part and heat it to shrink and hold the wires tightly.

Set SMART Goals

Your budget is highly dependent on your short-term, medium-term, and long-term goals. S.M.A.R.T. acronym is a good way of setting your financial goals. It is explained as under.

- Specific - State your goal in a few well-chosen words. “We want to own a condo in the Bahamas.”

- Measurable - How will you figure out that you have achieved your goal? “How much will the condo cost?”

- Achievable - The goal should be something that you can achieve financially. “Can we save that much given our current and predicted future income?”

- Realistic - Even if it is achievable, does it really make sense in your situation? “What will we have to adjust and give up and are we comfortable with that?”

- Time-based - Your timeline will tell you whether it's a short-term, medium-term, or long-term goal. “How long will this take?”

Properly stack the lumber

Besides temperature, one of the key factors in drying wood is to properly stack the lumber. In stacking, you have the landscape timbers, the stickers and the lumber itself. Experts recommend choosing a dry place to stack the wood. The landscape timbers that keep the lumber high above the ground have to be solid and sturdy. Using 18 timbers is moderate because it provides enough space for the woods below to dry up. The stickers that separate the layers, must be dried woods and also narrow. The best place to put stickers are the sides and the center. You should carefully stack up your lumber. Take advice from a local timber manufacturer if necessary.

Approach with caution

As prey animals, bunnies are naturally cautious and do not appreciate being pet by someone they don't know. Approach a bunny from a direction that it can see you, go slow, and don't make any sudden movements or else you might startle it. Gently put out your hand a couple inches from its face and let it sniff you to get a good idea of your scent. When it seems like it's relaxed a little, slowly move your hand towards the top of its head and give it a gentle pet. If it flinches or hesitates, go even slower or put your hand back altogether. It takes time to earn a bunny's trust, but your patience will soon be rewarded.
