So, if you are one of those people who figured it out…..do let me know what your secret is.

Anyway, first three weeks in December my life is a total chaos…..three weeks before Christmas is the only time I do not live in Organized Chaos…..yes, even daily organized chaos gets disorganized and stressed before Winter Holidays.

My “To Do” list gets so long that I need to find a way to get some quiet time…..collect my thoughts…..recharge my batteries…..turn off the voices in my head….

I am not a big TV watcher, but in December almost every night after the kids are fast asleep I find my escape from holiday hustle and bustle with W Network Holiday Movies.

I make myself big mug of creamy hot chocolate……grab couple of Christmas cookies and I snuggle on a couch with either my husband (if I ma lucky and he’s home) or my fluffy blanket.

Watching holidays movies always gets me in festive mood. Most of the Christmas movies I love to watch are not the big Hollywood production….big screen….award winning movies, but good feel….Hallmark….Made for TV movies.

INDONESIA

INDONESIA Indonesia lies at the border between the Pacific and Indian Oceans, allowing her to display one of the largest shoreline in the entire world. Its exotic beaches with fine white sand and tropical trees attract millions of tourists each year. Indonesia consists of splendid settings, including mountains, large forests, national parks, unique animals and many islands to choose from. If it still doesn’t sound as a perfect destination, think about Bali and its tranquil, relaxing scenery.

It’s improper to talk about Indonesia’s Mountains. More accurate would be the use of the term volcano. Bromo, Krakatoa and Semeru are worth a visit. Bali’s beauty exceeds any expectations, with Hindu artifacts, amazing landscapes and relaxing beaches. The Equator line raises people’s interest. Sangiran holds fossils from people who lived 5 million years ago. The cultural make-up of the nation includes a great number of tribes, communities or ethnicities, each tiny island having certain characteristics. Borobadur became one of the most famous Buddhist Temples, the Prambanam one is for Hindu adepts, while Masjid Istiqlal, welcomes Muslims in Jakarta. Furthermore, the Dani tribe inhabits Baileem Valley, the Taraja people have their own architecture in Tana Toraja and in Papua, the Asmat Tribe used to be a cannibal community.

INDONESIAAs you can see, not only the seaside deserves attention. Many tribes are a reminder of global diversity and alternatives to urban civilization. Korowais prefer a nomadic lifestyle and build their homes in trees. Pygmies manage to get by due to their agricultural activities. Moving to the majority, people are very careful with their behavior and avoid refusing someone. A dialect has more than 20 words to say ‘No’. Enjoy Indonesian food’s specific flavor, given by a mix of spices. The archipelago has a group of islands called the Spice Islands. Don’t forget to check the festivals, with symbols of many religions and ethnicities.

Virginia Beach Restaurant Guide

Virginia beach is part and parcel of the state of Virginia’s beach communities but has the distinction of featuring a record-winning pleasure beach strip. Tourists flock to this venue with a resort feel, and the three neighborhoods that almost always are featured front and center in a travel itinerary are Hilltop, Lynnhaven and the Resort Area, which is also referred to as the Boardwalk. Not surprisingly, the demand for a budget-conscious Virginia Beach restaurant guide is high.

Advantages Of Crazy Bulk Products

Steroids has proven to be one of the most controversial supplements in the body that a lot of body builders use in order to gain muscle mass in a short period of time, and with as little exercise as possible. While it does give you the muscles that you want in terms of looks and bulk, there are a lot of disadvantages that the use of steroids carry. This includes the conversion to estrogen which can cause unwanted enlargement of breasts, and other body side effects including liver damage. Crazy bulk results guarantee the same results as that of steroids, but they give it to you the safe way. With that said, what are the main advantages of Crazy Bulk Products that make them worth availing of, especially their Bulking Stack?

Legal and Safe

Drugs out in the market that are prohibited are those that bring harm to those who take them in, whether as a result of constant taking of it or all in one go. With CrazyBulk, you don’t have to get it from a black market, as you do with most steroids for body building which are illegal. These are natural alternatives to steroids that give you the same effect without putting harm on the body.

No Needles and Prescriptions

Illegal drugs can usually be administered only by a doctor who deems it truly necessary. Steroids taken via needle can also be painful, and can cause infection and swelling in the injection area if it is not done right. Getting Prescriptions can also be a hassle for you, as you would have to set an appointment with a doctor, which would ask for consultation and check-up fees from you and thus cost you more than you would have you taken Crazy Bulk products which don’t really need any of these.
