I’ve been interested in the Apple Watch since the Series 1 first made its debut in April of 2015. However, at the time, the wearables segment of the tech market was still relatively new. I decided to would be wise start saving my spare change, be patient, and see how it evolved.
For the past two years I’ve read every watch review and article I could find. Each time I did my Google app began adding more Apple Watch-related articles in my news feed. When the Series 2 watch was released last September, improvements such as better battery life and built in GPS really piqued my interest.
Still, I was torn. I collect vintage watches and love the feeling of a mechanical masterpiece ticking away on my wrist. Before the Series 2 my everyday watch was a beefy Seiko SKX007.
What's up, Steemit!
I would love to shake the hand of any man that found this
introduceyourself thing easy. I've been staring at the computer screen, trying to come up with something to
introduce myself for far too long and, after failing miserably, I figured I'd keep it short and sweet.
My name's Faye, I'm a 25 year old Brit residing in the jungle in Costa Rica and all I can really say is I spend Far. Too. Much. time drawing. Really. I'd say I spend a solid 50% of the time I'm awake with a pen in my hand, which makes for a pretty reclusive existence. A reclusive existence I try to balance this out as best I can with much adventure as possible. So when I'm not drawing in the arms of mother nature, I spend every penny I have on exploring all of the crazy beautiful places this world has to offer.
I've recently been introdu
I was not comfortable MAKING a blog post with everyone on here knowing blogging, formatting, making their posts look pretty, I basically joined Steemit the first week of August 2016 -- August is my birthday month so I will always remember that.
I spent the first weeks here reading and commenting on posts. A LOT.
Over the weekend my father and I made our way down to Canyon Creek. It was my first time fishing these waters but my dad had heard great things about this river. I was pushing to go to Tonto Creek, but he insisted this one would be better. He was right.
Now, in order to get to Canyon Creek this time of year takes a great bit of effort. The roads are rocky and not maintained and some of them are even closed, getting ready to be opened in a couple weeks. The snow melt from the White Mountains has all the rivers running well ahead of their normal flow rates this time of year. It is even more significant this year as we had a wet winter.
The following images are ones I shot while on our fishing expedition:
As you can see from these two pictures and the one at the top, much of the river was swollen

The purchase of this old home was the beginning of an adventure!
Back in 1988 when I was young and beautiful my wife and I bought an old fixer upper in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The house, which was built in the early 1900’s, was crooked, creaky and had rotten wood in many areas. It lay on what was once farmland and gave the appearance of having been built by the farmer himself from whatever materials he could find. In fact we would later find out that some of the walls had be
장보기는 그야말로 기회비용의 문제입니다.
어떤 것을 얼만큼 사야 할지, 어디서 사야할 지 이런거 말이죠.
예전에는 각 동네마다 자그마한 시장건물이나 재래시장들이 있었죠.
지금은 다 없어지고, 일부 재래시장과 대형 마트, 창고형 할인마트 같은 곳으로 가게 되잖아요.
현명하게 장 보는 방법, 한번 같이 생각해봐요.
1. 장보기 리스트를 적어라.
대형마트나 창고형 마트에 가면 신기하고 재미있는 물건들에 홀려, 예산을 훌쩍 넘어 장을 보곤 하죠.
장보기 리스트를 적어두세요.
더 좋은 방법은 일주일의 식단을 대략이라도 정하고 장을 보는 거겠죠?
Too many times I have burned myself by not taking profits. And every time I get the same feeling, that feeling that tells you have been a greedy idiot.
It’s so easy to get overexcited about a coin you invested in. And when it turns out to be an amazing investment that goes flying up you tell yourself: This is the new Bitcoin!! I’m going to be that guy that bought Bitcoin at 50 cents and held it all the way to $1000! Hodl Forever.
Believe me, I have been there.
So, while you are dreaming of Lamborghinis the price crashes overnight and you find yourself the next morning with a hangover and you didn’t even have a drink.
Every time I have seen my investment (that went up a lot) crashing down to normal levels or lower I get the same feeling.
‘Why didn’t I sell at $20? Now it’s back to $7 and I bought at $5’. And you get this nasty feeling in your stomach.
In trading, thi
Sometimes life just grinds you down. At my home and at my business I am a matriarchal figure that everybody expects to "always just be there". This doesn't mean I'm taken for granted, I know I'm appreciated and loved but sometimes I simply don't want to "be there". I want to be left alone in a little hole where I can lick my wounds in peace.
I've also had a virus and I don't know if my depression was worsened by the virus, or I contracted the virus because I was depressed. I was weak and slept a lot for about a week. I am taking a mild anti-depressant and the doctor wanted to put me on something stronger, but I can't afford it. As many of you know, I am from South Africa and I can definitely say our economy is tanking. There seems to be a miasma of depression and blackness blanketing our town. I am definitely not the only one who feels this way.
Have you ever met someone who is just so clumsy that you sometimes fear for their life? Well I have... Actually to most people I am that someone.
So a few months ago Daniel (The love of my life, the skip in my step, the sparkle in my eye) got me a new phone. Mine was old and kept turning itself off, GPS wasn't working and all around it was just going to die soon.
The thing is I used to have the Samsung Galaxy mini. I have pretty small hands and most smart phones these days are too big so I can't carry them with just one hand.
Hola queridos amigos de steemit, muchas gracias por apoyar mi trabajo, navegando en la web me cruce con esta hermosa historia, me pareció una buena acción que merece ser difundida, una mujer samaritana de los que ya no abundan, ayudo a una persona que vivía en situación de calle y le cambia la vida para siempre.
Esto no es una leyenda o un cuento de hadas que acostumbro publicar, esto sucedió en la vida real, una mujer llamada “Ginger” con una actividad muy agitada pasaba varas veces al día por el mismo lugar.
Durante 36 meses la señora “Prouse” vio a toda hora a un vagabundo siempre en la esquina de las intersecciones “Nasa Road y El Camino Real de Kemah Texas, Estados Unidos”. No había día que no estuviera ahí, sin importar las condiciones del día, tiempo después supo que este hom
Most of all she loves to cuddle and run. So she does what helps people to get rid of diseases and depression. Her endless optimism and cheerfulness energizes desperate souls.

The way a person views the world around them will have a direct affect on all those with close contact to the individual in question. For many early years of my life a younger @KLYE struggled with the concept of morality and the duality brought fourth from
good & evil.
Humans greatly differ in morals, intelligence and perception. It's truly amazing to see such a broad range of acceptable attitudes, actions and behaviors depending on your geographical location and culture. Simply put, no standard for what is acceptable or taboo can really be populated by studying humanity.
Different strokes for different folks as some would say.
While fundamentally I believe theft, murder, pedophilia and forced sexual acts are

봄바람을 타고 2017년에도 어김없이 벚꽃 개화시기에 이목이 집중되고 있다. 벚꽃의 개화는 봄나들이와 축제의 향연이 시작됨을 알리는 순간이기도 하기에 모두가 설레는 순간이 아닐 수 없다. 기상청이 발표한 데이터로 가장 먼저 제주도가 3월 20일에 개화하여 대구, 여수, 전주, 강릉을 거처 마지막으로 서해안의 영향을 받고 있는 인천이 4월 10일로 예상되고 있다.
전국의 벚꽃 명소 중에 대표적으로 <꽃놀이>라고 말할 수 있는 곳은 서울의 <윤중로 벚꽃축제>와 <진해군항제>가 있고 오늘은 <진해군항제>에 대해 소개하려고 한다.
<진해벚꽃축제>라고도 불리는 <진해 군항제>는 지난 1953년 4월 13일에 우리나라 최초 충무공 이순신 장군의 동상을 북원로터리

Fiat money, that which we can actually hold, or hear jingle in our pocket, is slowly on the decline. There’s no escaping the sad fact. Contactless credit cards are slowly invading everyone’s wallet, I don’t know about you, but I’m made to feel like a caveman every time I insert my chip and pin the old fashioned way. Cashiers seem to judge me for wanting a few more steps in the process of them taking all the money out of my account.
Contactless payment is taking all of the effort out of payment. Finding it difficult to summon the energy to undertake the arduous task of reaching in to your pocket and pulling out your wallet? Never fear, you can now use your phone or smartwatch to pay the bill. With so many alternative, I no longer need to be weighed down by all that silver and copper in my wallet. Surely our wallets getting lighter is only a good thing; NFC is a miracle, right?
However, consider, if you will, the poor homeless man on the street corner. The guy who sits outside the local corner shop pr
Since childhood, I've had a soft spot for lollipops and candy in general, although I know how bad that is for me. Part of my love comes from the fact that hard candy is just like glass, and as a glassworker and a chef, that's intruiging.
It's another one of those amorphous solids, and man I love those. From dabs to glass to candy, they all fit this interesting description. A solid without a defined shape, how cool.
This is something I never imagined I could do myself easily, let alone with four ingredients and no experience in candy making. So I'll share my recipe with you, for sim
