Wedding Centerpieces. High Quality, Low Cost

     Everyone that you invite your wedding is going to be looking at the Bride and how beautiful she is in her gown, the Groom and just how handsome he is in his Tuxedo.  The Brides maids and Groomsmen have to look top shape and their clothes must fit just right also because they are center stage with the Bride and Groom and everyone will notice, just not as much as their are noticing the Bride and Groom.

     One thing that we don't really consider is how much everyone will notice the center pieces but if yo think about it, while your guests are at the reception and eating their dinner the centerpiece is the one thing that is in their face and will be seen by so many.  So at you can get the custom made centerpieces that go with the theme, and colors but are not overwhelming to look at.  While you want them to be a focus of the table you never want them so big that they take over the table.  Wedding centerpieces should be elegant but yet not too over done. 

Personlized Ribbon for any Occasion

     Every wedding is a very special occasion, and we want our memories to continue on through many years to come.  What better way to remember our special day than with personalized ribbon for favors.  These ribbons are beautiful, and they come in many different colors to coordinate with your wedding them and colors.
     Maybe you are not having a wedding but a special Anniversary like your 25th or even your 50th wedding anniversary.  These ribbons are perfect for any occasion.  I think another great use for these would be for a baby shower or even Baby's first birthday party.  If you are having an occasion that you would like to remember at a great price then this is a great way to do so.
     When you order your ribbon you get 3/8" ribbon, 25 continuous yards long.  You choose the wording that goes on the ribbon but you are limited to a maximum of 34 characters not including spaces.  If you decide that 25  yards is not enough then you can order 100 yards but the ribbon will be shipped all on one roll.  Rather than adding to the cost they just make 1 roll which in the end keeps their cost down and also keeps your cost down on shipping. 
     If you have a special occasion coming up then you make like to get some ribbon to remember it.  I think one of my favorite times of the year to use ribbon is around Christmas.  What better way to decorate or even use on gift wrapping so they know exactly whom the gift is from?  Check them out and you will see, it is a great product with thousands of uses.

Biometric Gun Safes

     With the current events of the CT school shooting it gets us all holding our children a little tighter and keeping watch over them a little longer.  It did for me anyway.  I did not want to let my girls out of my sight not even to put them bed.  I sat watching them sleep to make sure I kept them safe.

     I personally own Glock 40 and have  for about 9 years and I have never had to use it.  I originally purchased my gun because I was in B.L.E.T. (Basic Law Enforcement Training).  We could use the school issued 9 MM but of course I decided to get one for me and I would have it for protection of my family and use for my Law Enforcement career.

     The first thing they teach in any gun safety class is not how to use the gun, clean the gun, but to keep it out of the reach of unwanted hands.  I don't argue the fact that should be the first thing taught/  You really need to know how to handle the weapon before learning how to shoot it.

     Guns safes can be very expensive, heavy, and sometimes very difficult to get into in an emergency.  At they have a Biometric safes that works off of fingerprints.  So you can program the safe to work with your fingerprints and your children can not access the safe.  This assures that the kids don't get the bright idea to play with daddy or in my case Mommy's gun.  There are so many children today that are killed by their parents gun, and completely accidental in most cases.   A child is curious and if they know where the weapons are they won't to look at them.  Unfortunately it usually ends in the death of a sibling.  And then there is the child that has rebelled against their parents and kills them.

     It is up to the parents to educate their children on the safety of the guns and put them out of reach under lock and key.  With these Biometric safes you have a better chance of the little ones not being able to get into the safe and getting the guns.

Torani for the Holidays

  I love my coffee in the morning and in the evening, especially when it is just freezing outside.  I am constantly trying new recipes to  make y coffee taste just a little bit better than it was before.  I have tried everything from the powder creamers, liquid creamers, and to the different types of coffee flavors.  While they are all great products I have now found the perfect touch to my morning pick me up and all day enjoyment.
