Motorhome insurance

Okay so we’ve finally bought that RV we’ve been talking about all these years. Finally we can just jump in and go anywhere we like for holidays. But before we do that we had to make sure it’s insured and my car insurer doesn’t do that! I have to look for an insurer that provides for motorhome insurance and we didn’t know where to start. A good place to start is on the net and we were surprised there are lots to choose from there.

Growing catmints

Catmint is easy to grow. They thrive in sun or partial shade. They prefer average, well drained soil . Plants are drougt and heat tolerant. They grow well with little attention, and will withstand crowding. Fertilizer is not usually required, except in the poorest of soils. We always recommend a little fertilizer at planting time, and a couple of times a year to promote maximum growth.

After the plants have grown a few inches, pinch back the shoots to promote bushy growth. It will first bloom in mid summer. After harvest, trim back the plants again. With luck, you will get three harvests in a season.

Catmint are aggressive growers, crowding out other plants if given the chance. Give them plenty of space away from other plants in your garden. Or, better still, surround it with a border edging.

Harvest leaves as the flowers begin to bloom. Cut off the top leaves, stems and flowers. They can be used fresh, dried , or frozen. Spread leaves out to dry in a cool and ventilated area.

Tech jobs

When I graduated from my IT course years ago I was really pumped and charged up. Very eager to put my new found skills to good use so I was looking for tech jobs with great enthusiasm. I soon found out that it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, even though I was an IT graduate there are a lot of graduates like me looking for work also. And a lot of them were much qualified than me. That’s why I decided to eat humble pie and start from the bottom in an IT retail store. The rest is history.

Best anti aging products

Alright I get it; we all grow old some days but if I could slow down the ageing process I would try my best. I’m having too much fun living my life and old age is just going to slow me down. That’s why I’m always on the look out for the best anti aging products that money can buy. Together with sensible eating and regular exercise I can live a long and happy life.

Growing papayas

To grow good papayas you need a frost free climate, lots of sunlight, lots of water and very good soil. If you can supply all of the above you can pretty much stick some papaya seeds in the ground at any time of the year, and six to ten months later they will start fruiting.

Papayas are fast growing, single stem plants. The trunk is soft and does not have a bark, and papayas don't have branches. The leaves are huge and don't last long. Usually you have a tall trunk with a crown of leaves at the top of it. The overall appearance is a bit like a palm tree. If a papaya loses the growing tip or is cut back it can develop multiple trunks. The fruit grows on the trunk, and since papayas continue to grow up and up the fruit is harder and harder to get to as the papaya plant gets older...

Hair loss shampoos

I think someone told me once that I’ll loose more hair if I wash my hair too often. Is that even true? I never quite believe it then and not even more now that I’ve heard of hair loss shampoos that help restore your hair and not loose it! I must give them a go since I’m loosing more hair than I can grow them. Anything to slow down the ageing process will be good.

Summer & winter squashes

Summer squashes are large, bushy plants. The fruit of summer squash are harvested when they are immature and have soft skins. Fruit can be stored for 1 to 2 weeks. There are several types of summer squash. These include zucchini (cylindrical, club-shaped fruit), crookneck (long, tapered fruit with curved necks), straightneck (bottle-shaped fruit with straight necks), and scallop (flattened, roundish fruit with scalloped edges).

Most winter squashes are large, vining plants. (Several semi-bush varieties are available to individuals with small gardens.) Fruit are harvested when they are mature and have hard rinds. Winter squash fruit can be stored in a cool, dry location for 1 to 6 months. Various sizes, shapes, and colors of winter squash are available. These include acorn, buttercup, butternut, and hubbard.

Treatment for arthritis

My mother is having some pain in her hands and joints and the doctor said its arthritis. Well she is at that age of her life when arthritis can strike. She’s asked me to help her find a treatment for arthritis on the internet. Needless to say I found so many treatments out there all claiming to do wonder to relieve you. I supposed you have to find the right one that suits you. Not all treatments are suited to everybody; you just have to find the one that suits you.

Growing zucchini

Zucchini is another vegetable originally brought back from the Americas (along with chillies, tomatoes, potatoes and chocolate) by the Spanish Conquistadors. These are fast-growing, warmth-loving plants, and spring is the ideal time to plant seeds or seedlings. In subtropical zones, you can sow seed from July through to March. In temperate zones (eg, Sydney) sow from September to January. In cold climates (eg, Tassie and mountains) sow from October to December.

Plant zucchinis in a very sunny spot, in soil enriched with plenty of aged manure (eg, Dynamic Lifter) and compost. Mulch around plants to a depth of about 3-4cm, to preserve soil moisture and suppress weeds. Zucchini need a steady water supply, so keep plants well-watered. To keep plants growing rapidly, give them monthly liquid feeds as well, or apply some more Dynamic Lifter around the base of plants each month.

Nikon binoculars

The new property we bought recently overlooks across the bay and on a beautiful clear day you can see for miles and the view is breathtaking. Now I’m contemplating getting a binocular because I get some pretty interesting people coming to the bay. A friend of ours recommend the Nikon binoculars, I though Nikon only does cameras but looks like they’ve widened their field of expertise. I’m sure they are good because I have used Nikon cameras all my life and never had any problems with them.

The sunflower

The sunflower has a tall and thick stem crowned by what seems like a single giant flower. Interestingly, this flower is no flower at all but a constellation made up of hundreds of small flowers called the head. Although the sunflower head resembles a huge flower with yellow petals and a brown centre, it is actually the brown that is the constellation of flowers, with the yellow leaves acting more as a protectant to the flowers during the flowering and seed development phases. A sunflower can grow to become well over 10 feet (3 meters) tall and the head can become quite wide.

Blackheads on nose

Let me tell you a funny story; I used to get very bad blackheads on my nose. You can physically see the big ugly black dots sticking out of my pores and I used to squeeze my nose till it bleeds! Then I got into that sticker thingy that you stick onto your nose and then peel it off that also pulls out all the nasty blackheads. That was disgusting. But now there are easier remedies for removing blackheads on nose and there’re so many to choose from.

Growing carrots

Carrots are one of the best vegies you can get kids started with in the garden. They don't take up much space, either, so even if you have only a small patch of sunny ground available, you can get a small crop of carrots growing.

Preparing the soil before planting is important, as carrots need deep, well-drained soil that is free of rocks, stones, old roots or anything else that could get in their way. Dig the patch over really well down to the depth of a spade (about 30cm), until the soil is fine and crumbly. Add some compost and well-rotted manure, and mix that in well with the soil.

Next time I buy memory

Note to self; next time I buy memory for my PCs, don’t just go for the cheapest ones. There’s a good reason why they’re cheap usually it has to do with the quality of the components that the chips are made from. I had a bad experience buying cheap memory from a local computer shop, sure it was cheap but the grief it gave me was enough to smash my PC to bits. Luckily I was able to exchange it for better ones. They cost me a little more but now I have no more grief.

Growing sweetcorn

When growing sweet corn, it is important to have plenty of space in your vegetable garden. The most important parts about growing corn are, correct planting, adequate soil moisture and nutrients, and harvesting at the right time.

The time to plant the corn is after every chance of frost is over, and the soil has reached at least 10 degrees Celsius for normal sweet corn and 17C for the other types. Make sure the seed is fungicide treated if you plant the corn in cool wet soil, since these conditions favor the growth of fungi which can rapidly rot the seed. Plant the seeds about 20-30 cm apart (2-3 seeds at each spot), in rows about 30-40 cm apart, about 3-4cm deep, except for the super-sweet variety which should be planted only 2cm deep. Water them thoroughly and wait for the seedling to come out. If more then one seedling grows our of one spot, weed out the weaker or poorer seedling, further increasing your chances of a great harvest. Make sure the corn leaves don't curl up which is a sign of lack of water, and if they do water the corn immediately. Usually once the corn reaches a height of 50cm it isn't necessary to water it anymore unless the leaves curl up, and you should fertilize the plant at this time. Proper weeding also increases the chances of a good harvest.

Growing chillies

Chillies are the hot fruits of a range of capsicum species that originally came from the warm northern regions of South America. In the past 500 years they have been traded across the warm areas of the globe, and today chillies are an integral ingredient in many different cuisines around the world.

Chillies thrive in alkaline soils, with the exception of Capsicum chinense ‘Rocotillo’, which has a rating of 8 and likes acidic soil, but chillies are generally very adaptable to a variety of soil types. They are also ideal for growing in containers.
