A Vacation Can Sometimes Make or Break a Marriage

Filed under: family law/divorce — tannerandhaley @ 7:08 pm

Detroit, MI – Every couple should take a vacation together before they commit to traveling together through life whether you live in kalamazoo, Seattle, Bellevue or wherever, according to experience counselors. In the latest article “Saving your spouse” on the Today’s Detroit Weekly Woman, Ms. Anderson, writes: “If the reaction to the travails of travel is neither light-hearted nor admirable, she writes, “this can be a warning sign as to what lies ahead when life is less than perfect.”

Missed airline connections or less-than-desirable hotel accommodations can put a strain on the most romantically-entangled couple. How they weather the “crisis” says volumes about themselves as individuals and as potential mates. If you are in need some family law advice then contact a Kalamazoo Divorce attorney in Kalamazoo, MI.

“When two people are away from the familiar day-to-day of their lives, the underlying reality shows through. Travels can provide an important test of how and even if a couple is really capable of the three relationship musts: cooperation, communication and compromise.”

Other lessons which travel reveals is what each person really enjoys to do in his or her free time. “If one partner really prefers mountain climbing while the other loves museums, then accommodations must be made – or a new life companion found,” If you are in San Diego and need a reputable family law and/or San Diego divorce attorney who happens to do DUI and criminal defense law as well as being a San Diego divorce attorney, I suggest this firm. Or if you are in Los Angeles I can endorse this Los Angeles divorce lawyer firm there.
Even the choice of destinations can be revealing. If one person “wants to go to Pakistan while the other is ill-at-ease in Ohio,” someone or something has to change. If one of the partners feels that the sacrifices in vacationing together are just too great, then it is better to find out before houses, children and careers are involved.

But, if a traveling couple lives through what could have been a deal-breaker and transforms it into a life lesson, it can actually strengthen the relationship and save a marriage.

What Makes Ulster County New York Real Estate So Special?

Filed under: real estate — tannerandhaley @ 11:14 pm

Ulster County New York real estate is where you will find good times and a relaxed, quiet atmosphere. Those who enjoy a rugged, rural appeal combined with just the right touch of modern will love this area, perfect for building a new old-fashioned cottage, cabin or farm house. When you’re tired of the bustle and noise of city life, head for Ulster County New York real estate. I also dig Scottsdale and the big island real estate as well.

What makes this charming area any different from other real estate you will find? It reminds me of upcountry big island of Hawaii or scottsdale real estate Arizona with luxury homes for sale.When you combine countless lakes, spacious tracts of land that offer trees and gently rolling hills and the magnificence of the Catskill Mountains, you will understand why there is just no place like it anywhere in the world. This real estate is the perfect place for those who want to be within close
proximity (90 miles or so) of the city, but feel they are a thousand miles away.

The atmosphere is old-fashioned, charming and a bit nostalgic. Much of this is due not only to the unspoiled natural surroundings, but the new “old” cabins, cottages and traditional homes that dot the landscape. Some are tiny rustic cabins while others are spacious farm houses that boast wrap-around porches and rock fireplaces. Depending on the size of your family, you can choose an intimate, cozy little home or one that is wide open and spacious. Buy or build a home, it’s all up to you.

Ulster County New York real estate offers not only character-filled homes, but lots of activities for the outdoor lover. Climb the mountains, go for a ride on your bike, or jump in the boat and enjoy a day on one of the many lakes. Snow or water skiing is a favorite, depending upon the season. Ride horses, hike or just relax in a hammock in the front yard while enjoying the sounds of nature. I also really dig Scottsdale plus big island real estate which has luxury golf courses, country clubs and the like.

If you live in the state of New York you already know that there really are areas that are free of tall buildings and concrete. If you do not live here, it may be hard to imagine that there are areas that offer a rural country appeal, areas where quiet and relaxation are at their best. This
Scottsdale luxury homes as well as big island real estate is the perfect place to build your own old-fashioned home, whether for year-round living or
those long weekends and vacations. Come see for yourself what you’ve been missing!

Consider Ulster County New York Real Estate for Your Country Get-Away

Filed under: real estate — tannerandhaley @ 11:37 pm

If you’re thinking along the lines of “rural” or country for a primary or get-away
home, consider this real estate. This is the ultimate destination
when spacious, beautiful surroundings and quiet are what you seek. Whether you’re
an outdoor enthusiast or would rather stay tucked inside with a good book, Ulster
County New York real estate offers a nostalgic, peaceful atmosphere not found often
today. I also go in for Oahu and Big Bear, for that matter.

What makes this area so unique? Of course there are the gorgeous Catskill
Mountains, but the land offers much more. Beautiful rolling hills surrounded in
forests, plentiful lakes and picturesque views make Ulster County New York real
estate one of the most serene, old-fashioned settings you’ve ever seen. As I said I also enjoy Oahu Real estate and also that of Big Bear, California.

You may choose to buy a cottage or cabin that’s already built, or maybe you want to
have a new one built from scratch. The wonderful thing about the homes in the area
is that they complement the land so well. These homes are new, but have all of the
character and rural charm of those you would have expected if you lived 100 years
ago. It’s easy to understand why Oahu and Big Bear estate offers the
perfect backdrop for these old-fashioned homes.

You may be one of those people who is totally addicted to fishing, or maybe you like
to hike for exercise. Ulster County New York real estate offers plenty to do for
those who love the outdoors, from skiing and biking to kayaking, canoeing, riding
horses and snow skiing in winter months. Imagine coming home to your own cozy cabin
after a day spent on the slopes! Snuggle up close to the fireplace or wood stove
and thaw out your toes while you enjoy the relaxed, ambient atmosphere.

Some of the features you’re bound to love about the homes located on Ulster County
New York real estate include wrap around porches, walk-out basements and huge
country kitchens where the whole family will enjoy a country meal. It reminds me of Big Bear real estate
and Oahu in that way Lots of wood add
to the old-fashioned charm; wide plank floors, salvaged beams and shaker-style
cabinets in the kitchen offer that comfortable, “come in and stay awhile” appeal.

Are you thinking of buying or building a home as a primary residence or maybe
splurging on that vacation home you’ve always dreamed of? Consider this. The natural, unspoiled beauty of the land will take you back
to a peaceful place and time.

Traveling to Southern California

Filed under: General news — tannerandhaley @ 8:47 pm

I love to travel to San Francisco plus Southern California in general and the greater Los Angeles county area in particular, though I reside in Milwaukee, but as someone who loves to bike ride I can tell you it is one of the more dangerous cities for bikers and pedestrians. A lot of DUI there. Unless you are on the beach trails it is not always safe, as los Angeles is decidely a car town and other people sometimes get marginalized unfortunately. maybe that is why a criminal defense attorney or personal injury lawyer is a good prefession to be in there. For example, in recent Los Angeles Injury and Accident News, a Bicyclist Killed by Suspected Drunk Driver in a typical such scenario: According to a California Highway Patrol report yesterday, October 23, 2010, a 46-year-old bicyclist was hit and killed by a car on Agoura Road, east of Liberty Canyon Road.The Shane/Regis Mullen firm is atop Dallas injury lawyer too.


The victim was resident of West Hills, James Laing, who was riding a bicycle east along Agoura Road. Apparently he crashed with the side of S.D. Whitmanesgal’s 2002 Mercedes-Benz at 3:45 p.m. Whitmanesgal is a Woodland Hills resident.
The collision caused Laing’s death due to massive internal injuries. Los Angeles County Fire Department paramedics listed him as deceased at the site of the accident.


Reportedly, Whitmansegal fled the scene, but witnesses followed her to a parking lot, not far from the accident, and called the police. Deputy Sheriffs held her until the CHP officers could get to the scene.
Whitmansegal has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence. of course, like my hometown Baltimore, the Los Angeles area is also pretty violent. A recent news story about a Ventura Man Injured by an Accidental Gunshot is somewhat typical, although an accident it shows how many gunsare around. In that particular case, According to police reports, a resident of Ventura was shot by his wife as she examined a handgun the couple had just purchased she pulled the trigger of the gun which she believed was not loaded, and shot her husband in the abdomen causing the personal injury.
Police reports state that the man and his wife were at home at the time of the shooting at the 200 block of South Santa Rosa Street. Switching gears for a moment if you are in need of a qualified San Francisco criminal defense lawyer who does Oakland, San Jose DUI and federal criminal defense attorney type cases as well.
David J Cohen Law Office
300 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94104-1908
(415) 398-3900


Then allow me to suggest this one if you are in Oakland for DUI too. The shooting occurred shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday.
The man was transported to Ventura County Medical Center for treatment where he received treatment. Although police believe the shooting was an accident, they took possession of the handgun.
Police also reported that alcohol and unfamiliarity with handguns contributed to the personal injury incident.

Traveling With Your Pet Easier Than Ever

Filed under: General news — tannerandhaley @ 12:12 am

I just returned from good old Maui (association management related issue) and it got me to thinking about some things other than just real estate: It’s getting easier all the time to travel with your pet. There are more pet-friendly hotels than ever. There are websites set up to make finding them easier. These sites help you locate pet-friendly lodging along your chosen travel route. The pet travel service websites even offer pet friendly destinations and events, such as parks, beaches, stores, and more. They list pet-friendly airlines. One site, called Petswelcome, says; “From Pet-friendly Airlines to our Watchdog Club, where visitors offer up their favorite Fun and Cool Places to take animals, petswelcome covers everything you need to know to take your dog, cat, ferret, bird, bunny, horse, hamster or reptile on the road for a fun, safe and rewarding trip anywhere in the world.” I just need a new Long distance service if I am going to travel this much, especially with all of the international clls from my mobile or internet phone. I mean, let’s face it, long distance is always going to be long distance, it is not cheap unless you have Skype on your internet phone or something like that.

 

The Petswelcome website also offers some great traveling tips. It advises to keep a list of emergency pet clinics in the area you’re heading to. They even have a database of emergency vets.

They advise that Rabies vaccinations are essential for all travel abroad, and for returning to the United States. They note that many airlines require these vaccinations.

They also warn that it’s dangerous to have pets unsecured while riding in a car. A sudden stop or accident can send them flying to an injury. The pet can also run away when the car door opens.

Special harnesses are available for dogs that work like seatbelts, and cat-carriers are great to keep kitty safe. Carriers also work well for small dogs. Be sure to secure the carrier with a seatbelt.

If you have one of the many dogs or cats that do not travel well, your vet can prescribe sedatives to keep them comfortable. The vet can also prescribe travel-sickness pills.

The website also reminds you to always check with your vet before giving your pet any medications. Also, consult with the vet about dosages, too.

One piece of advice that is very compelling is in response to the horrifying incidents involving animals being left in hot cars, resulting in them suffering heatstroke. The site recommends leaving at least two windows (for cross draft) open slightly to allow fresh air inside the car.

If you are in Maui and looking for some prime real estate there then I do suggest this particular Maui real estate and association management for various property management and also Maui real estate and association management firms..

A really interesting gadget to consider is one of those fans that are solar-powered. They fit snugly in the window, and the hotter it is, the better they work.

Petswelcome emphasizes; “However, we strongly recommend that you DON’T leave animals in the car in hot climates or during the warmer months, as even a short time in a hot vehicle can be injurious to your pet.”

Choosing the right jewelry for your Honeymoon and Wedding

Filed under: General news — tannerandhaley @ 6:58 am

Alright I am back to Dallas after a trip to Houston because I had to go over there and meet with my very good Personal injury attorney Houston who also does wrongful death, auto and even motorcycle accident type cases in Hoston, and today I am going to write a little about some off-topic stuff: a large portion of the wedding dress is the accessories which compliment it and it is not that odd at all for brides to wear diamonds on their wedding day.


One of the major jewelry lines of online designer jewelry has a new line out which is just for the bride and bridal party. All in all, this particular line of jewelry is really great for gifts to the bridal party, which is of course traditional to give the bridal party gifts and elegantly designed pieces for the bride as well.


The jewelry line includes things like a Richard & co watch and diamond ankle bracelets in 18 k gold. All in all, the various prices on the bridal party and brides jewelry range from $50 to $1,000. Not to change the subject but if you are in Dallas and need a truly wonderful Dallas or Houston TX attorney like The Brian Loncar Firm who also does DWI and criminal defense type cases in addition to the aforementioned DUI stuff then I do recommend this leading attorney, I am not sure if he does personal injury but you can certainly call and ask him about it.
The designer jewelry has been made to be elegant and match with any type of wedding gown from the most modern to the vintage design. The company also features men’s jewelry that can be used for the groom and his party with rouphly the same quality.

Big Tourism Firm Hilo Hattie Files Bankruptcy

Filed under: Tourism — tannerandhaley @ 10:18 pm

If you have ever gone on vacation to any of the major Hawaiian islands like Oahu then chances are you have been to one of these retail stores. They are about as common as an Oahu used cars lot or designer furniture source store.
Hilo Hattie filed Chapter 11 owing at least one of their creditors $1.3 million dollars, according to Bob Taylor the president and CEO of Maui Divers jewelry, which has an interest in the souvenirs and aloha attire company. The Hilo Hattie’s seven stores have Maui Divers concessions inside their stores that accounts for approximately 20 percent of the company’s jewelry sales. Taylor has stated that Hilo Hattie is an important part of their market; they do not want to lose from the seven stores. Oahu stores were quite lucrative, much like the oahu used cars industry.

According to Maui Divers plans they would rehire most of the Hilo Hattie employees and keep most of the current vendors. They plan to put approximately $2 million dollars into operating the stores and in merchandise.There is a June 22nd court date to decide if Hilo Hattie will be liquidated or if an independent management trustee can assume control of the company. Mauai divers is not the type of firm to seel an, semi mount ring 14K gold ring or gold earrings but they are a good choice for a Richard & co watch, jacob & co watch or items ilke that. Switching gears for a moment if you are looking for designer furniture and are in need of an excellent furniture source for kitchen barstools, leathercraft, Americal leather sofas, Shabby Chic Furniture, designer lighting and outdoor dining funiture let me recommend this key source.

According to the Hilo Hattie attorney Chuck Choi, the offer by Maui Divers will not satisfy all of the outstanding creditors including $800,000 that is owed in rent to the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and a $700,000 mortgage that is owed to Central Pacific Bank.

The particular properties in Maui are various enough in style, design, and layout that they can accommodate the taste and space requisites of just about any vacationer and his or her family.

The city of Kaananpali is small enough to be personally inviting to newcomers, but large enough to make seasoned visitors wish to return again and again. Kaananpali plays host to miles of hiking and horseback riding trails, as well as beautiful sandy beaches that ring with relaxation and serenity. Lahaina is the nearby capital of Hawaii and offers many of to most beautiful Hawaiii & Maui vacation rentals. The rental condos, resorts, and homes for rent there are often more economic, private, and hospitable than the large, impersonal hotel chains, making vacation rentals in and around Kaananpali a favorable choice for many visitors.

The city of Kihei is larger than Kaananpali, but that doesn’t diminish its charm or vast cultural essence in any way. Scuba diving is a particularly fun pastime that one can experience while vacationing in Kihei. In fact, the Maui Dive School is located within minutes of the beach, so you can experience the ocean in ways you’ve never thought possible, even if you’ve never scuba dived before.

Some of the most visited resorts in Hawaii reside along the coastline of Wailea, Maui. This beautiful city Many of the rentals come with private or shared pools and hot tubs, so if you’re not in the mood to feel the sand between your toes, you can still enjoy a relaxing soak or swim on a warm night.

Have Fun in the Sun in a Colorado Vacation Rental This Summer

Filed under: Vacation Rentals Travel — Tags: , — tannerandhaley @ 9:12 pm

If you’ve always thought of Colorado as the perfect place to go skiing and snowboarding in the winter time, you were right on the money. But if you’ve ever thought the slopes and ski resorts close down during the summer months, think again.

Colorado is a Great Place To Visit for Fun

There may be even more fun activities to enjoy in Colorado during the summer months than a winter wonderland could possibly provide. Golfing, hiking, white water rafting, kayaking, canoeing, and camping are just a few of the outdoor activities that can be enjoyed in the mountains of Colorado during the warm season. There are also various tours, hot air balloon rides, and festivals to attend that will give you a taste of what it’s like to live in this beautiful state. The most popular places to stay are the same in winter and summertime: ski resorts villages. Resorts, however, are just one option of the plethora of places you could stay while you visit Colorado. The ski resort villages there also provide many vacation rentals ranging from one bedroom condominiums to five bedroom homes. These popular vacation retreats are available for rent all year-round.

During the cold season, Vail, Colorado becomes a perfect retreat for those wanting to spend their time skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or simply enjoying the wintry outdoors. In the summertime, on the other hand, Vail attracts thousands of avid bicyclists, hikers, horseback riders, fisherman, hunters, and more. To accommodate all of these visitors, there are many rental condominiums and even homes for rent year-round. Rental properties or resorts vary in their accommodations, all of which can meet the needs of couples and families alike. Vail CO Ski Vacation rentals are available with anywhere from one to five bedrooms, dependent on your needs, and can be rented for as little as a few days to as long as a few weeks.

Breckenridge, Colorado, like its sister village of Vail, is also an incredibly popular summer and winter spot for those looking to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Breckenridge sits in the famous Rocky Mountains and is known by annual visitors as one of the best ski resort villages in the United States. Although, like Vail, Breckenridge becomes a proverbial paradise on earth to outdoor enthusiasts during the summer months, there are many indoor activities that can be enjoyed as well. There is a theatre in the village, as well as museums, spas, ice skating rinks, a concert hall, and more. Many people even choose to come here to have a summer wedding in the Rockies. Whether you’re a newlywed looking for a honeymoon suite or one member of a large family reunion, there are summer rental options available for you in Breckenridge. Rental condominiums range in price and size to fit the budget and space requirements for virtually anyone. Homes for rent are also a popular choice for those looking for an even greater sense of comfort. Resorts are also available in the village for those looking to connect with other vacationers.
