Dog Poop Bags – new times call for new business

Dog Poop Bags – new times call for new business

Times have changed. Our cities have expanded, more open land is being developed now and we’re all living in high rise buildings with no gardens. The result is that we are all required to take our dogs out to community parks to relieve themselves and that has brought on the new problem of dealing with pet waste.

Laws and rules have been laid down about owners having to clean up after their pets and before long dog poop bags were invented and they are now sold all over the place to make it easier and more convenient for pet owners to actively take care of the environment.

As times change and new things come about, new business opportunities arise. Dog poop bags, as simple as they are, have become a business opportunity like few others. In my opinion the business can be compared to the opportunity toilet paper was in the days it was invented. Pets will always produce waste, and pet owners will always be obliged to clean up after their pets. Dog poop bags are almost as high in demand as toilet paper now, and laws that state pet owners have to take care of their dog’s business ensure that dog poop bags will never go out of demand.

As a result, dog poop bags are a good investment from a business point of view. New developments in the characteristics of dog poop bags are also wide open for exploration as the product still has room for improvement. The bags have been made biodegradable, recently also flushable, they’ve been made colourful and scented, and there will still be more developments in this industry.

If you’re interested in getting involved in business opportunities, something as simple and every-day as dog poop bags could be just the answer for you, because it’s in such high demand and so many pet owners are willing to jump at new developments that make waste removal even easier and less unpleasant for them. Turn on your creative brain, get involved in the dog poop bags business and make a difference to the environment and pet owner’s sentiments, along with the money you earn.

Q&A: What are small white mites that are visible to the naked eye and are found in the home?

Question by ejdeco33: What are small white mites that are visible to the naked eye and are found in the home?
Hi, I repeatedly have problems with small white mites. No matter how much I clean, they seem to return after short periods of time. They are about the size of a full stop and I thought they may be dust mites but all info says dust mites are not visible without magnification. The do not limit themselves to soft furnishings and can be found on any surface although dust does seem to be the common factor, hence my assumption of dust mites.

I was wondering if anyone else had had this trouble and what they did to solve it. I would love to get rid of carpets and follow some radical plans to get rid of them but unfortunately, I live in rented accommodation and can not alter the flat much.

Thank you.

Selecting Your Golden Retriever Puppy




Once you have decided on a breeder that you can trust, you’ll need to start thinking about what type of puppy you want. This decision could take you some time, as it can be quite a few weeks or even months before the right litter is whelped – although it will be worth the wait. If your breeder has a few litters available when you look for your Golden puppy, you may be able to compare.

Some breeders may require that you put a deposit down on the puppy of your choice, if the puppies aren’t a certain number of weeks old. The good litters rarely go unsold, as most are already spoken for before the puppies are seven weeks old. If you want to get in on a good litter, your best bet is to get to your breeder early – before all of the puppies are sold.

When you arrive to get your puppy, you shouldn’t be alarmed if the breeder does the selecting for you. Most quality breeders will spend quite a bit of time with the puppies and they will know just what their individual temperaments are. The better breeders however, will do temperament tests to determine the temperament of the puppies they have with each and every litter.

By performing these tests, the breeder will get assistance in selecting which puppy goes to which type of home. If you’ve chosen one of the better breeders, you should let him do his work and help you select the puppy that he or she thinks will be your best match. Breeders can obviously select you a better puppy, as they have been around the litter for several weeks – and you have only been around the litter looking at them for a few minutes.

Although all Golden puppies are appealing to the eyes, you need to base your reasons on more than looks. Before you pick your puppy up, you should always make sure that he has a strong build, with straight legs. The puppy should be strong and muscular, yet be squirmy and active when you first try to pick him up. You should also make sure that he has healthy teeth and gums, and look over the rest of his body to make sure that he is healthy.

If your breeder does allow you to select your puppy from the litter, then you should take the puppies that you are considering to get away from the remainder of the litter and observe each one carefully, and how they react to you. Puppies that are around 7 weeks of age should be apt to explore their surroundings. Even though they may be a little cautious at first, the puppies should still be more than anxious to look around and sniff their surroundings.

When you single out the puppies, make sure you speak to the ones you are interested in and see how they react to your voice. Try moving around and playing with them, and see how they respond to you. Some puppies will be faster than others, although you shouldn’t pursue any interest in a puppy that doesn’t show any interest in moving objects or their surroundings.

If you take your time and evaluate each puppy that you are interested in, you can find the best puppy for you and your family. Golden Retriever puppies are great to have, providing you get one that’s healthy. Getting a healthy puppy should be your desire – as a healthy puppy will grow into a strong and healthy adult – and be around for years to come.

Termidor Termite Control Treatment – (252)531-0621 North Carolina

We Guarantee Termidor to Eliminate Your Termites – A little bit of Termidor goes a long way in treating your home. Termidor is applied at very low rates. Typically, the active ingredient (fipronil) is just 0.06% of the solution, a concentration much lower than that of older liquids and less than most insecticides. Keep in mind, too, that since 1995, fipronil has been used around the world for flea and tick control on household pets and on agricultural crops to protect food supplies. Termidor also binds to the soil, so there’s no leaching through rainfall or irrigation. And Termidor has virtually no odor, which means you and your family won’t notice a thing. One of the most tested termite solutions in history. Before Termidor was made available to American homeowners through Termidor Certified Professionals, it was subject to some of the toughest tests in history. For 8+ years, grueling USDA-Forest Service ground board and concrete slab trials in four states tested Termidor. At every application rate and every last location, Termidor proved 100% effective.

Instant Stress Relief: Awesome Penguin is Awesome

I don’t do stress very well. I get antsy. I eat too many cookies. I spend a lot of time staring vacantly into space listening to my heartbeat drum in my ears as I resist, with variable success, the urge to overreact to every little thing. You’d think I would be better at dealing with this sort of thing by now, but of all the curveballs I’ve weathered in life, this particular move has really unsettled me in a way that makes me entirely sympathetic to those who are simply steering clear of me until everything is in the clear. It’s what I would do in your shoes.

The urge to run is strong. If only I could escape somewhere far, far away, I would feel a lot better. In the absence of an actual physical egress, perhaps a pictorial one will do. (This must be why I’ve always obsessed over National Geographic.) One can’t get much further away than Antarctica. Join me, if you would, for just a moment, to the happy land of Antarctic Emperor penguins, where no one has to argue about closing costs, fish are abundant, and if you want to shove the guy next to you into the drink you can totally make it look like an accident.

The following is an excerpt from the November edition of National Geographic magazine. For the full piece online, please click here. Enjoy!

When an emperor penguin swims through the water, it is slowed by the friction between its body and the water, keeping its maximum speed somewhere between four and nine feet a second. But in short bursts the penguin can double or even triple its speed by releasing air from its feathers in the form of tiny bubbles. These reduce the density and viscosity of the water around the penguin’s body, cutting drag and enabling the bird to reach speeds that would otherwise be impossible. (As an added benefit, the extra speed helps the penguins avoid predators such as leopard seals.)

An airborne penguin shows why it has a need for speed: To get out of the water, it may have to clear several feet of ice. A fast exit also helps it elude leopard seals, which often lurk at the ice edge. © Paul Nicklen/National Geographic

Life is safer at the colony, where predators are few and company is close. © Paul Nicklen/National Geographic

I can go ahead and add this to the list of things I want to see before I die. Add to the list of things I do not need to see ever again: Buyer Disclosure Lists, escrow closing documents, packing boxes.

 

My life has been greatly enriched by having an ipad subscription to Nat Geo. It’s saved me from having to read 2010 issues of Life and Style at the doctor’s office more times than I can count.

Thanks to National Geographic for permission to use these fantastic images from Paul Nicklen and the November issue of National Geographic magazine. For more images and interactive video of the penguin zooming out of the water, you can go here. Happy Monday!

The Homeless Chef: Rustic Rosemary Roast Stew

I’ve only been in the kitchen a couple of times during the Summer of Murphy tour and it was time fer me to get back in there and make a sammich damnit!  
Except it was chilly in Connecticut at Dawn’s house and I was in the mood for a hearty, savory, rustic stew.  Here’s what I worked up:
Fry a half pound of bacon, remove, then add a stick of butter to the grease to sear the pork roast on all four sides.  reduce heat and saute garlic and onions in the pan with the roast.  
Fill the pan up with beef stock and bring to a boil.  I would’ve made my own if I had time but I used Swansons a base and built the stock up from there by adding maple sugar, Sriracha, red wine, and a few other savory seasonings like cumin and cayenne pepper.  Remember, when it comes to sauces it’s all about sweet and heat.  
Next, add fresh rosemary and lemon thyme sprigs to the broth and simmer for a couple of hours depending on how many pounds the pork roast is packin.  About an hour out from serving time, add mushrooms, carrots, and fingerling potatoes to add to the heartiness of the stew.  
I’m always trying to build up layers of flavors you can saute the mushrooms in wine and butter first and I also recommend roasting the potatoes and garlic, too.  Just didn’t have the time for that.  
I think next time I make this I’m going to use roasted autumn veggies like butternut squash and brussel sprouts for the stew… Until then… Puppy Up and Chow Down!
