When traveling on a ship or plane whether traveling domestic or international you must have the correct travel documents or your trip can be delayed or canceled.
For example if you are going on a cruise which many people do this time of year it is important to have the correct travel documents when you show up at the port for departure.
If you are an American citizen you basically only need your US passport. If you are a green card holder or permanent resident you will need your green card, your passport and it is advisable to take a copy of your marriage license. If you are a tourist from another country and decided to take a cruise from the United States to a foreign port you will need your passport and a valid reentry visa. You may already have the reentry visa if you had obtained a visa to come to the United States make sure the visa has a multiple entry clause allowing you to go in and out of the United States for a certain period of time. So before you depart on your trip just check your documents to make sure they are in order.

When taking a trip such as a cruise or international travel you might think about obtaining travel insurance.
Travel insurance will cover you in the event you have a trip cancellation or interruption. This is not an expensive insurance and can be as low as $2.50 cents per day. You may purchase travel insurance that will cover medical costs while in a foreign country. Many people prefer to purchase travel insurance that will cover the cost of the trip if for some reason it is canceled or you can't make it for example for medical reasons. Many plans will offer trip interruption loss of baggage or medical evacuation. You don't expect to cancel or even have a medical emergency while traveling but these things happen so you should be prepared by having travel insurance. So before embarking on your adventure check with your agent about obtaining travel insurance it will give you peace of mind.

Yes the NFL game between Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos should have really been called the Tim Tebow show.
During the first three quarters of the game the Denver Broncos did not show us very much. The sports commentators kept pointing out all the mistakes that were made by the offense and defense of the Denver Broncos. I call these guys Masters of the obvious. In the fourth quarter the Broncos came alive with Tebow at the helm and scored enough points to tie the game and send it into overtime. The credit has to go to Tebow for putting this beautiful drive together. He threw a pass which resulted in a touchdown and then decided to go for two points to tie the game he ran the two-point conversion in himself in typical Tebow style. The master of the obvious commentators of course heaped praise upon him after this. Great job Tim hang in there you are one of the best.

Here are the things that she is planning to buy: Toys for her nephews and nieces. They told her “Angry Bird” toys are popular in the Philippines. She wants to give scents for her girlfriends and clothes for her relatives. Printed shirts for her cousins because they love it and plus size dresses for her aunts. But, we have a special something for her mom which is a big secret.
The list is not yet complete and she will have to finalize it tomorrow. She thought of other things and hoping she can find some nice gift items for her family.

This post brought to you by Express. All opinions are 100% mine.
I do not usually wear formal wear except when I attend weddings or funerals. That's really true! But, sometimes we need to loosen ourselves and explore other activities. Well, since I am a retired person, I have all the time to attend business meetings too. There are times I need to wear formal men's suits. See the picture below:
If you are interested to buy gorgeous suits either for men and women, you should check out Express. I love their selection of suits because the material they have is quality and the design is really perfect. Why won't you check it out today? They also run an Express sweepstakes which you can enter for a chance to win a $500 suiting makeover. This is a limited time sweepstakes so; you should join the contest now.
My friend recommended this Website a month ago. He bought a pair of suit for his networking event held in Miami. Well, he works in a Marketing business so; appearance is a must! If you visit the site, let me know which suit defines your personality. The picture above is the kind of suit that I will wear. I would look good on it says my wife.
So you going on a cruise fun in the sun visiting exotic places world-class entertainment and endless buffets who could ask for anything more.
When you book your cruise you will notice that you have been informed there will be a automatic gratuity added to your bill. This will generally run $12 a person per day for the length of your cruise. You as a guest on the cruise ship should not feel obligated to offer a tip for good service. But if you have had exceptional service from a member of the crew and you would like to offer a gratuity they are allowed accept. There is generally no need to tip but if you feel you want to acknowledge a particular individual it is really up to you. Just use your own discretion and have a great time cruising the high seas.

If you are preparing to purchase a new home and have been on that never ending quest of house hunting you might try Central Florida as it is truly a buyers market.
There are really some great bargains in central Florida and especially in Cocoa and Cocoa Beach. I would you like to find a three bedroom two bath in good shape for the price of $39,000 to $49,000 some homes even come with a pool. Sounds too good to be true. Due to the abundance of foreclosed homes these prices are a buyers Paradise so if you are planning to make a home purchase you can't go wrong in Florida. Be sure to use a local reputable real estate agent who can guide you through the entire process.
While watching the show, I couldn’t help but think about the hardworking men behind it. The show was very informative. Probably they hired some individuals through court reporting services because all of the information in the show was all very detailed. They have accurately reported the time, date, place and they even provide visuals and re-enactment to make the case understandable and interesting to the viewers. Other legal terms were explained to suit to audience understanding.
Thinking about those cases that are still unclosed up until now, I think our country needs more able men to solve these. Aside from reliable court reporting services, I think our country needs able men who will stand up for what is right and true, who will not be bribe with money, and most of all who has the love for God and his country.

It’s every woman’s dream to have a home with very beautiful furniture and fixtures. Think about a kitchen with elegant counter tops and tables made of marble. Visualize having a marble fireplace in the living room. That tops everything else!
Why would a woman want a marble fireplace in her home? This may sound a little sentimental, but a fireplace represents warmth, and for many families, gathering together in front of the fireplace during cold evenings and sharing stories can be life’s greatest moments worth remembering.
Here’s a list of some questions interested people may ask about marble furniture and fixture such as when considering making a marble fireplace:
Will it cost much? The answer is yes and no. Yes, it will be a little expensive if the choice of marble is of high quality. On the other hand, it can also be a “no” because there are less-expensive types of marbles that can also be used.
Are there many colors to choose from? Yes, there are at least 18 colors to choose from. Examples of marbles in light colors include Carrara White, Crema Marfil, Calacata Belgia, and Botticino Friorito.
Will it be worth it? Of course! A marble fireplace is an amazing addition to a beautiful and loving home – the warmth it brings makes the home feel affectionate and makes it more comfortable – a place worth coming home to at the end of the day.

When traveling by air you know from experience that many airports are not user-friendly when it comes to parking. This is not the case here at the Orlando international Airport. If you are going to pick up someone at the airport you may use short-term parking right across the street from the terminal. The short-term parking is divided into two terminals and they are also color coded, orange for Terminal A, and green for Terminal B. When parking in the short term garages you will have easy access to the terminals.
Another option provided by the airport is called long-term parking which consist of several different parking lots that surround the airport were you may park your car for a longer period of time at a reduced rate. They have buses running 24 hours that will pick you up and return you to your car. The lots are also color coded to make it easier for you to remember where you park your automobile.
The last option available to you is off airport parking which is provided by private companies. These lots are cheaper than parking at the airport. I think the Orlando Airport Parking is reasonable whether you use short-term parking or long-term parking.

After knowing the basic knowledge of tax laws, she did our tax returns for the last two years now. It was easy to prepare with the help of software for tax preparation. She was able to file and prepare our tax papers correctly and everything went well. Every year, there is a course given to advance the skills and knowledge of a person about income tax and she took all those classes. Becoming a tax preparer is a rewarding career and she enjoyed it.

Flying in an aircraft to take you to your destination is what we usually do. But if ever you have a very important event or occasion to attend to and no one’s going to take you there, you can simply rent or book a private jet. It may sound expensive but I guess it is the best option you get. Besides, it will bring you to the place that you specifically booked with them.
There is an aviation Website that I found online that offers a clear booking process. They will personally take care of your needs and make you feel at home when you are on board. They make sure that you will be given the proper information that you need to know. Whatever your request is while on board will be supplied to you as they aim to give their customers the satisfaction that they deserved. If you think this sits well with you, try to contact them now. Or see it online to get the detailed information.

When I was younger, I traveled Europe and been to so many places such as Germany and Spain. I lived there for so many years and I am familiar with German and Spanish cuisine. In Germany I love the Goulash soup with dark bread and in Spain, I love Paella. In the morning, I love to eat Tortilla Patata. Traveling to HomeAway UK and Paris France was exciting because I went there for a short vacation. I still remember the places that I visited and I always stop by to a restaurant for fish and dip. Anyway, those travels are the good old days but, I gathered a Travel cook book from the places that I had been.
The Italian court acquitted her on all charges but one which was implicating her former boss in the murder. He was eventually found innocent after serving some time in jail. She was fined €22,000 and sentenced to time served three years which made her eligible to leave Italy a free person.
While waiting for the verdict seated at the table with her lawyers she looked very pale and at times was sobbing and to be consoled by one of the female lawyers. When the decision was read she was escorted immediately out of the courtroom by the police guard it looked at times like they had to hold her up and she was sobbing and could hardly walk. I would estimate she will leave on the first available plane in the morning. She was freed from prison only hours after the verdict. Goodbye Italy hello America.

I guess ESPN is trying to be politically correct as usual but I did think we still had free speech in this country. I have noticed no one gets fired or condemn when remarks are made about the tea party or GOP candidates it seems like a one-way street. They don't seem to reprimand some of their commentators for on air remarks. Of course they are free to fire anybody they like but let us be on the lookout for remarks made by ESPN personnel in the future and see what the consequences are. Hank Williams can survive without ESPN and so can the rest of us. I will miss the opening song on Monday night football it really puts you in the spirit and nobody can do it like Hank Williams Junior. I don't know what they have planned for the new intro but for sure it will never be the same.
But with the recent technology, one goes to school and get the course he likes and work at the same time.

It seems every day that I turned the TV on there is president Obama having a news conference or pitching his job Bill or stimulus bill.
After listening to all the rhetoric and spin it seems that we are playing an endless blame game. The unemployment rate has been around 9% for most of 2011 was over 9% for 2010 and a lot of 2009 and it is predicted to remain above 8% until at least 2014.
I do not give all the blame to the Obama administration. The last year in office President Bush really did nothing to help and added to national debt. The Congress seems to be fighting among themselves and accomplishing absolutely nothing also. They have the lowest rating in history I think it hoovers around 3% of approval of the American people. But I have noticed president Obama does not take any of the responsibility or blame for our economic problems at all. He has blamed everything from the earthquake and floods in Japan, to the Arab spring, to Congress and gas prices. He trying to run far away from any type of blame. He seems to have forgotten how deep in debt he has put our country and still wants to spend more money. Soon it will be the time for the American people to speak as 2012 is just around the corner. Rather than blame everybody on the planet president Obama should stand up and take control and tried to solve this problem with the help of his GOP rivals. Now is not the time to play politics. The present administration doesn't seem to understand this but I think they will in 2012 when president Obama becomes a one term president as in the case of Jimmy Carter. I wonder who he will blame then?
My wife's aunt who lives in Australia has invited her to witness the tennis australian open on January 16 to January 29, 2012 at the Rod Laver Arena, and she is considering the invitation. My wife is eager to go to the australian open 2012 and right now, she is very excited! I mean, who would not want that? If she goes to the Tennis Australian open, my wife will explore the wilderness of Australia and as far as New Zealand.
That would be amazing! I wish I can go with her so we can explore the countryside. We would plan a side trip to Sydney, Melbourne and see the famous tourist spots in Australia. Perhaps, we can join some tour to see the Aboriginal people. I want to try the Australian cuisine too. It will be exciting to know their culture and the local food they have in their restaurants. I am already drooling over my crazy thoughts. But then again, I do not even know if my wife will push the plan. Tennis is big sport in Australia and it is acknowledge worldwide. Could it be that not knowing how to play tennis would make this trip not exciting? I really do not think so.

We now say farewell to Steve Jobs this is a sad day in American that this man with such innovative ideas as passed away at such an early age. We all knew that he was very sick but now reality has struck that he is no longer with us.
His influence at Apple will always be there but they can no longer count on his valuable opinion and impressive ideas. Thanks to his inventions iPhone, iPad and the Mac Apple will always remain on top. It will be hard to replace his insight and vision and technical skills combined with his marketing skills. Apple will not fail without Steve Jobs but his guiding hand and innovative ideas will be sorely missed.

The world really has turned one hundred eighty degrees for China. They are now huge! They are booming and getting to be the only one country in the world that has not experienced economic windfall.

Well, Chinese people are always keeping their foot forward. That is how the success stories of famous Chinese business tycoons have been told over and over.

Amanda Knox has left Italy and arrived in England this morning. She then boarded a flight to the USA and is now homeward bound.
I cannot imagine how she and her family must feel but I am sure it is filled with relief and joy to be leaving Italy. The Italian courts finally came to their senses and found this woman and her boyfriend innocent.
I noticed some of the news commentators are asking what will she do now? I'm sure she would like to spend time with her family and get some much needed rest after this four-year ordeal.
The television pundits of course are saying she will write a book make a movie and do many interviews on the talk shows. I agree and hope she makes a lot of money as she deserves it for what has happened to her.
What a difference between how the public views Amanda Knox versus Casey Anthony. I doubt Ms. Knox will have any trouble selling a book a movie or doing interviews. On the other hand Casey Anthony who some say is the most hated woman in the world if not the world at least the United States. Is viewed totally different as many people vow not to buy her book see her movie or watch an interview. Both accused of murder both acquitted. I do think that Ms. Knox was unjustly charged and is very glad that she would was found innocent. On the other hand Ms. Anthony was acquitted by the court but many people still believe that she murdered her child and will never forget it or to change their mind. It will be interesting to see what paths the two women will take. Only time will tell.

Airsoft is a purely recreational application in mind, and the sport is enjoyed by all ages by both male and female. That is why Airsoft Stores are just about everywhere. The minimum safety level of gear required to participate in most airsoft games include a pair of impact-rated goggles to protect the eyes of the players. There will be minimal damage to other body parts if shot from at least ten feet away by a gun with typical muzzle velocity.
When one uses traditional prescription glasses or sunglasses, or even ordinary goggles that are not designed specifically for use with airsoft or paintball guns, then he or she is endangering himself or herself. These may break or shatter on being struck causing damage to the eye. So; the only way for one to get the exact accessory is to buy them from the airsoft store. That also goes for complete airsoft uniform as well as the guns.

Now that we have wiped Awlaki off the face of the earth what should our next target be? I think it is important to get the foreign terrorist such as Zawahri the number one man of Al Qaeda now that Bin Laden is sleeping with the fishes.
I think there is a far more important target we should strike first. Adam Gadahn a homegrown terrorist and traitor to our country he is the chief propaganda man for Al Qaeda. He is wanted by the FBI for treason which is punishable by death.
This young man reached his peak as a goat farmer in Southern California. The former goat farmer is believed to be hiding in Pakistan. Who knows he may be plying his trade their as they do have a lot of goats. I hope that the CIA is planning the demise of this traitor as we speak. Then we can get on to the business of sending the rest of these terrorist to their happy virgin heaven as soon as possible. I wonder if they will have goat virgins for Adam? So Mr.Gadahn keep looking over your shoulder if you hear BABABA it may not be a goat!

When I heard the news that the terrorist Awlaki had been taken out by a missile strike in Yemen I was very happy. This man was an American citizen and a traitor to our country his only goal in life was planning how to kill as many Americans as possible so I had no sympathy when given the good news he is no longer with us.
While watching the news this morning there are some libertarian politicians such as Ron Paul who were upset that we had killed this murdering terrorist. His opinion was we should have given him a fair trial because of his citizenship he claims he was denied due process. Is he crazy this man is running for president if he ever had any chance of being elected to that office it ended this morning. The American people are tired of opinions like this. This terrorist only goal in life was how to bring down the United States. He was an enemy combatant he got the proper due process he deserved. Let this be a lesson to future American-born terrorist the only thing waiting for you is a big BOOM that you will never hear. As for Mr. Paul he announced his retirement and hopefully in the near future we will not hear any more from him.
