When you buy a chinchilla, one of the first things that come to mind is of course, what you should feed it! You see, chinchillas are exotic pets and they have very delicate digestive systems. This basically means that you have to keep your chinchilla on a strict diet for that it is really important that you read up on chinchilla characteristics, in order to keep the little thing happy and healthy! But don’t worry about a thing, because this article is going to teach you everything you’ll ever need to know about feeding your chinchilla!
The first thing that I wanted to talk about is what you’ll need to feed your chinchilla. Like any other pet, chinchillas have their own specially formulated foods that come in tiny bite-sized pellets. But unlike most pets, chinchillas only eat small amounts of food at a time. This pretty much makes over-feeding your chinchilla foolproof! Since chinchillas are on the smaller side, they don’t really need to eat much. So feeding them 2 times a day should be plenty. A lot of owners just keep food in the cage at all times, as I said before, they don’t overeat like other common pets!
But pellets alone won’t keep your chinchilla well-fed and happy. You also have to give them these little cubes of hay. Most people just call them hay cubes, for pretty basic reasons! Your chinchilla will munch on these cubes from time to time. These cubes don’t go bad either so you can all ways keep several laying in the corner of the cage.
And on that note, they’ll also need to be given a mineral and vitamin-rich seed mixture. After a lot of discussions, the general rule of thumb is about a teaspoon per day. Now I do have to give you a fair warning, chinchillas are CRAZY for this stuff! The seeds are kind of like junk food to it, meaning that they can’t really pace themselves around it! So you probably shouldn’t fill a dish up with it and expect the little thing to spread it out on its own! Again, all you have to do is put a teaspoon in once a day while you feed it. If you have multiple chinchillas make sure that you use one bowl per chinchilla, so they all have a shot at getting enough seed.
Timing Is Everything-
When you’re talking about chinchillas, the single biggest thing has got to be the timing. You see chinchillas crave structure and a timely schedule. This means that they tend to get stressed out when you change up the schedule, so you’ll need to put them on their new schedule the day you get it. And if you’re late with feeding them, they’ll make a barking like noise! But like I said before, you should all ways try to keep enough food in the bowl to last until you feed it again. So this shouldn’t really be too big of a problem.
Safe Chinchilla Treats-
If you want to give your chinchilla a little extra something in their food dish then you should pick something from the list below:
Since it’s release in 1998, Viagra has become a household word. It has not only created a revolution in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, but also become something of a cultural phenomenon. Viagra jokes are ubiquitous to the point of absurdity. But behind the advertisements by Bob Dole and the NASCAR sponsorships is a rather interesting medication. We all know what Viagra does, but how does it work? The answer to this is not as simple as it may seem. The hyper male force increases the production of the muscles around the penis. It will become thicker and stronger for sex. The requirements of the partner will be satisfied through the consumption of the medicine. A vital role is played in the production of testosterone that will be beneficial for sex.
In order to understand how Viagra works, you have to know a few basics of the nervous system, and the process by which an erection is created in a health man. There are two major parts of the human nervous system, the part you control directly and the part that keeps all the organs running smoothly in the background without you thinking about it. The automatic part is known as the “autonomic” nervous system, and learning the details of how it works is the bane of medical students worldwide.
The autonomic nervous system is then split in to two parts, known as the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. These are the systems that are responsible for the “fight or flight” reflexes when you are in danger or under stress.
It is the parasympathetic response that is responsible for creating an erection. When a man gets an erection, the parasympathetic system triggers the release of Nitric Oxide. Nitric oxide stimulates the release of a chemical known as cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) which causes the smooth muscle in the corpus cavernosum of the penis to relax. This in turn leads to increased blood flow to the special tissues of the penis. It is this increase in blood flow that causes an erection. Following along so far?
As is obvious, an erection is not desirable to have all the time, and thus there needs to be a way to rid the tissues of the penis of the nitric oxide. This is done in a healthy man by an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE-5). PDE-5 is released when the erection is no longer needed. It acts to break down the cGMP which is causing the erection. Once the cGMP is gone, the erection is gone as well.
Here’s where Viagra steps in. Viagra blocks PDE-5 from breaking down the cGMP. If the cGMP remains present, the erection sticks around as well (no pun intended). In effect, Viagra turns off the “off switch”. Note that because Viagra blocks the “off switch”, it is still necessary to stimulate the man to get the erection in the first place. Viagra cannot create an erection, it only helps maintain one.
It should be noted that cGMP has many other functions in the body in addition to its role in creating erections. Preventing the degradation of cGMP by blocking PDE-5 can also lead to the side effects that can be reported with Viagra use, such as low blood pressure, headache, flushing, and palpitations.
The two other erectile dysfunction medications, Cialis and Levitra work in a very similar way to Viagra.
Because of these potential side effects, Viagra can only be prescribed by your doctor. If you have questions about Viagra or think it may be something that could help you, talk to your doctor.
When programmable thermostats first came out, I was skeptical. I decided to do a little research, as the local power company was advertising them as the greatest thing since sliced bread. My old house central A/C unit used electricity like it was free, so I would turn it off during the day, and come home to an oven at night. Leaving it on for the cats wasn’t much better- I wound up counting pennies to keep the electricity on.
Everyone I asked at the power company said they worked wonders. Even my local Home Depot friends said they were worth their weight in gold. To my amazement, several brands were available.
I chose a unit that didn’t have many features and paid $25.00. That weekend, I turned the power to the house off (I’m afraid of electrical shock), and installed it. Within three weeks it paid for itself and then some. By the end of the year, I saw nearly $750 in savings. I haven’t looked back.
If I can install one, so can you. Here’s a general installation for programmable thermostats. Those that include separate furnaces or outside sensors may require hiring an electrician, but the energy savings will pay for the costs.
Open the package to your programmable thermostat and read the instructions carefully.
Turn the electricity off to the air conditioner /heater. An electrician friend once told me, “There are old electricians, and bold electricians, but no old bold electricians.” I’m not bold.
Go to the old thermostat and remove it. The face plate should come off easily. Don’t start undoing any wiring yet.
If your new thermostat package includes labels for the wires, attach them to the wires the old thermostat is using. Each wire is connected to a terminal with a letter next to it. Here, wire colors don’t mean much- pay attention to the letters.
Remove the mounting screws and carefully remove the old thermostat. If it’s a mercury- filled thermostat, dispose of it properly. Make sure the wire labels stay in place. Above all, don’t let the wires fall back inside the wall- that’s a headache no one wants. To remove the screws properly and easily, make sure to use a quality impact driver. Find the best dewalt impact driver model for you and make sure that you choose the ones with quality structure and at the same time, price friendly.
Slide the new thermostat over the wires, and mount the unit to the wall using the screws.
Attach the wires to the appropriate letters in your new unit. Labeling the wires makes certain you get the right wire to the right control.
Attach the face plate of the unit. Install the battery if the unit needs one for the digital display and turn the power back on.
Using the instructions, program your new thermostat. You can lower and raise the temperature to meet your needs at any time of year.
Enjoy the savings.
Some notes to keep in mind:
Purchase an Energy Star rated model for the best energy savings.
Decide what your energy needs for heating and cooling are, and buy only the unit you need. The model I purchased allowed me to raise or lower the temperature twice a day during the week and on the weekends. Other models have far more features.
Purchase the right model for your house. If you have a separate furnace, heat pump or other type of heater, let the DIY associate know, so they can help you find the right model.
If purchasing online, find out of you can call or email the manufacturer so they can help you choose the right model. Once you know their recommendation, you can look for a less expensive model that will do the same things you need.
I installed my thermostat being scared witless of being shocked, and I was fine. I didn’t burn my house down, either. Just follow the directions and you’ll be okay.
If all else fails, you can always hire an electrician.
I am convinced that if the prince’s mother from the fairy tale “The Princess and the pea” had put the pea under a Tempur-Pedic mattress then the Princess would have never felt pea, never passed the royal test and never married the Prince. Perhaps the princess would still be wandering around bed-hopping.
Eva at Mattressify will help you in learning all about these amazing mattresses and the amazing features you get with these different mattresses.
In my own fairy tale, the king had surgery several years ago followed by complications and long-term therapy. We had a fairly new King size Sealy mattress that we both really liked just fine but several medical professionals highly recommended a Tempur-Pedic mattress. With the 90-day money-back guarantee you get as you visit laweekly, we decided to try one out and may I say that we have slept happily ever after.
It is important to know that there isn’t one Tempur-Pedic mattress. Tempur-Pedic has a whole line of mattresses with varying details that all feature the unique Tempur foam material.
Tempur-Pedic Sleep Systems:
Our mattress is a CA King ClassicBed. The ClassicBed is known for “pressure-relieving comfort and therapeutic support” and it delivers.
The Tempur material is so different than traditional mattresses with box springs. Basically there are no pressure points. It is a rather firm mattress yet it melds to your body like a good pair of Birkenstocks meld to your feet. The difference is that the melding is not permanent. When you spring out of bed your Tempur-Pedic mattresses return to form.
New and Improved Features of the Tempur-Pedic Sleep Systems:
a removable washable cover made of a Rayon-Velour that I think feels luxurious when I put on the sheets
an Air Flow system that has eliminated some of the “overheating” issues customers first experienced with Tempur-Pedic mattresses.
The Tempur-Pedic is a heavy mattress (thank goodness for the bed delivery to the top floor) and we chose the thickest model. It is very heavy when I lift the corners to change sheets but it is manageable and a small price to pay for the comfort of this mattress. Speaking of price, this is not an inexpensive mattress. It is like a hefty investment in comfortable rest and quality sleep and our returns have been exponential compared to other investments of late!
Why I like the Tempur-Pedic ClassicBed:
I love the way it feels immediately when I lie down. There’s no routing around to get comfortable. It’s just comfortable right away.
My husband noticed a worthy difference in his comfort and rest as he recovered which was a blessing and he continues to love this mattress.
I also love that my movements don’t move his side of the bed and vice versa.
If you ever fall in love with a Tempur-Pedic, all other mattresses will be downhill from there but Tempur-Pedics are made-well, durable, and have washable covers so you should count on enjoying one for a long happily ever after. It was a good investment that has truly offered this King and Queen royally good sleep and comfort. The 90-day money-back guarantee makes it easier to try out a TempurPedic mattress.
This is Jennifer Lawrence, and I am from New York. I am 22 years old currently. I came to know about paint-by-numbers when I was 21 years old. Last year when I went to my cousin’s house I came to know about this interesting art form. My brother was a great fan of this painting, and he almost regularly used to do the same for fun and relaxation. I used to think then that how can just by connecting a few numbers by paint anybody can get fun, but when I got into it, I found it really quite unique.
My experience with paint-by-numbers:
My initial thought about paint-by-numbers is a bit different from others. First I thought that it would be quite boring and it is just a kid’s job, not mine but when I started, I slowly realized that art is really very interesting. In fact, connecting the numbers with colorful paints is highly thrilling and exciting. When I completed connecting all the numbers, I felt so good that I have finally created something of my own that I never expected ever in my life. The overall experience was really quite great, and in words, it cannot be justified well enough. I never knew that painting can be so very fun and that that was the first time when I discover the same.
In my childhood, I have never experienced this kind of art, and that is why it seemed so very fascinating for me when I came across it. Trust me, there is no chance of making any mistake in drawing, and this is the best part that I realized. You simply have to join the given numbers chronologically for making the picture completed. When the picture got completed, I felt that I am a professional painter; it was really an amazing feeling. Later, when I came back home, I ordered the paint-by-numbers kit immediately and started making interesting drawings. Now, I am almost addicted to it. Whenever I get free time, I take my brushes and start painting. This is even more interesting than chatting with friends. You should always buy your kit along with a frame as a beginner.
My suggestion is that if someone uses painting kits for adults and practices this art on a daily basis, then not only will he get to know more about painting, but he will also receive acute mental satisfaction by completing the picture. For me, it is a kind of psychological therapy that stimulates the brain-nerves well and releases unwanted stress from your mind. If somebody explains to you about it, you might not find it much interesting, but if you try it by yourself, then only you will be able to evaluate the experience. The pictures that are created from this painting process are not only creative, but they are pretty reflective as well. You can choose the colour as per your own choice and preference. You have to make your brushes cleaned regularly so that you can use them properly.

There are certain topics that merit many discussions and still you might not do justice to it as some things are beyond words but you have to begin somewhere so that the new people are also introduced to it.
Given the corona virus outbreak, the entire world has been confined to their homes as all countries have called for a nationwide lockdown since the past few weeks as a result of which nobody can go out unless absolutely necessary.
Therefore, everyone is reminiscing about old times when the whole family would go out for a movie or shopping where the ladies in the family would simply stand outside a shop for hours together greedily eyeing their favorite jewelry or dress.
But the one that has the distinction of being called woman’s best friend is the handbag and so let us move our discussion to a brand that is renowned worldwide for its unique set of handbags.
Louis Vuitton is the topic of discussion and many people are familiar with it but there are also many that are not so therefore we will get to study a bit about it and it has some of the best handbags that you can find in the market today.
It is quite astonishing because this company was launched nearly a century and half ago in 1858 by a fashion designer from France who named it after himself: Louis Vuitton.
He was not quite interested in his studies right from childhood and used to help his mother out, who was a hat maker, in her work and learned the better aspects of hats and other products.
After she passed away, he made up his mind to open up his own shop and after a great deal of struggle, launched Louis Vuitton with a variety of products that quickly took the European market by storm and the handbags left everything else behind in the popularity race.
Vuitton handbags are of different designs and qualities to cater to the tastes of various kinds of women, who are anyhow pretty choosy while shopping for handbags and rightfully so as they have to keep their personal items in it but have trouble doing so.
The rival companies have started making replicas of the handbags so as to study the aspects of how it is still in demand even after two centuries in existence. The copies are so perfect that it is impossible for anyone, except experts with an eagle eye, to discern it from the original when they are placed on either side.
Due to which most women end up confused but that does not stop them from trying out Vuitton handbags as there are still many shops that still have original models as they are so popular.
To know more about fake Louis Vuitton models you can click on https://www.mau-fashion.com/louis-vuitton-replicas/ as it is a great shopping guide for beginners to study more and more about Vuitton products and about the feedback of other women sharing their experience regarding the handbags and the brand as a whole.
By now everyone has heard about social networking and some of the more popular ones like MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter. Social Networking seems to be the thing that all friends and family members do now to stay in contact with one another. But there are a few draw backs, one of course is having your identity stolen and the other being a victim of a predator. Those things understandably scare people and perhaps it’s why you haven’t joined one of these social networks. But just because you haven’t joined one, doesn’t mean you haven’t thought of joining one, probably even feel like you’re being left out sometimes. Well, that problem can be solved with creating your very own social network.
An intriguing site out there that lets you build your own social network is called SocialGo. This site lets you create and run your own personal social network that allows you to invite anyone you want to join it and at the same time can be kept from the public being able to visit and/or join. With this, you can feel safe and secure, knowing that you won’t fall victim to identity theft or predators, and still be able to feel like you’re “keeping up with the Jones” so to speak. In addition, with the help of BuzzVoice, you can grow your audience easily. This service allows you to have more followers and likes on your social network. This will be very helpful as a beginner as one of the hardest challenges you will encounter is to gather more followers.

For those who want to set it up themselves and have access to all the extras, like video chat, videos, blogging, etc. The monthly fee for this account is $24.99 a month. If you want SocialGo to set it up, maintain it and just let you have to worry about relaxing and enjoying it the monthly fee for this type of account is a bit steep though at $149.99 a month.
The other two types are the Starter Package which is the same as free but the ads are removed for $4.99 a month, otherwise this package is no different than the Free Package being limited in features that are available. But if you’re not into all the fancy bells and whistles that can be added to your network, then the Starter or Free Package is just your ticket.
With the free package you do get 1GB of storage and 10GB of bandwith standard features and unlimited amount of members on your network. But if you aren’t sure if the free package will be good enough for your needs, they do give you a free month of trying out the premium package to see which would be best to suit your needs.
Signing up for one of their networks is quite easy one of the very first things that you are allowed to do is to stipulate whether or not your network will be private or public. There’s also the options for making it a business, education or organization networks.

There has been no evidence to show that dogs cannot live a healthy, fulfilled life on a vegetarian diet, and if you as an owner are a vegetarian, there are ways in which you can apply your guidelines to the food your pet eats as well. There are many vegetarian dog food recipes now used in commercially bought dog foods, and it’s also very simple for you to make these at home. Of course, making your own pet food at home has its advantages as well; you can avoid the potentially detrimental health effects of other meat-based commercial products. Considering all this, you can also check out M Dog for different items that you can use and add as you create vegetarian dog food on your own.
Dogs need protein, fats, carbohydrates, minerals, and vitamins in their diet and these can all be found in non-meat based products. Vegetables provide your dog with plenty of nutrients in the same ways that they are good for humans. Not only that but you can adapt the way you cook your vegetables for the family at home to meet the needs of your dog. It could potentially work out cheaper than buying canned or bagged products.
Whole wheat pasta is also a healthy treat for your dog, but you should ensure that it is cooked first. You could mix the vegetables and the pasta together to make a tasty dinner for your dog. In the same way, whole wheat bread is also nutritious for dogs, and you could mix it in as well with the vegetables and pasta, or just use it as a tasty snack for your pet.
If you don’t have the time or the inclination to make your dog food at home, there are plenty of commercial products manufactured using vegetarian dog food recipes. Nature’s Recipe is just one of these, and you can buy this brand from many places and it is reasonably priced. Basically Natural also provides vegan and cruelty-free food for both animals and humans as do Wysong Corporation. You just need to shop around a little bit to ensure you buy a product that you can afford and that your pet enjoys eating.
If you talk to your Vet, they will be able to tell you the benefits and disadvantages of vegetarian dog food recipes and also point you in the right direction when thinking of ingredients. Technically speaking, grains, vegetables, and supplements that are not cruelty based can all meet your dog’s dietary requirements, so there is no actual reason why a dog cannot live on a completely meat-free diet, and if you as an owner are a vegetarian, you may find that you do not wish to feed your dog meat-based foods as it would go against your own beliefs. It comes down to personal choice what you want to feed your dog, but you should be aware that there are many resources for vegetarian dog food recipes on the internet and also in book form, so you may wish to check them out and see for yourself the pros and cons.
What is interesting about the human experience is that people are always rushing to get to the next thing. Even though a new condo launch in Singapore might be getting you excited but there is nothing that beats this particular experience. When kids are younger, they can’t wait to get older. High school students can’t wait to get a car and gain a level of independence. The same thing goes for many residential college students who often cannot wait to get off-campus and live on their own. On some level this is understandable. After many years of living under the rules of authority figures, students are ready to break out and experience more freedom in life. Of course, older adults have the wisdom to know that independence can often be overrated. While students may get tired of following institutional rules, there are some advantages to staying on campus for the entire collegiate career.
Being on time
One very practical advantage to being on campus is that students will have greater potential to get to class on time. If students live off campus, they have to deal with driving, finding a parking spot, and rushing to class. Granted, being on campus does not guarantee that students will be on time. Sometimes being close in proximity makes people even less responsible about alarm clocks, meals, and time management. However, the potential for punctuality is still there and many students may experience less stress by having the convenience of on-campus access to their classes.
Access to facilities
Another advantage to living on campus is that students have easier access to various facilities. This can include the library, labs, athletic facilities, stores, and eating establishments. Again, these are the types of places that can still be accessed by a student who is living off campus. However, when students are at off campus locations, they may be less prone to hassle with driving to campus in order to access one building. The on campus student is much more likely to take a short walk to a conveniently located facility, which can often enhance their overall college experience.
Activities and connections
While students go to school for an education, there is also a major social component to the college campus. The on campus student is much more likely to get involved in activities, clubs, and events because they are close by. This makes the overall collegiate experience much more satisfying, and participation can lead to a greater number of relationships and connections. Life is often about networking, and many college relationships continue for the rest of people’s lives. Therefore, living on campus may restrict some student’s freedom, but it can pay dividends when they get into the vocational world.
Independence will come
Ultimately, college is one of the more unique experiences of life and it should be savored. Again, this can be difficult to explain to a college student who can’t wait to get on to the next phase of their life. However, there is real value in living on campus because independence will be a reality soon enough. When students graduate, they will experience freedom but they will also start to understand that with freedom comes responsibility. The off campus student can certainly enjoy themselves and have a positive college experience, but there is a richness to living on campus that is often difficult to replicate.
