    My Secret Is Out

    My Secret Is Out

    
There’s this concept online called crowdfunding. In basic language, crowdfunding is a group of people that buy into another individual's/company's idea. I mean buy as in money, and buy as in you like what they are selling. I actually can’t tell you how I got involved, but believe me, it had to be something I saw online that made me say, “Wow!” I was working then, though money was tight, but what I saw made me say, “I've got to have this!” The problem was my spouse, who wasn’t my spouse at the time, but we were dating and living together. I knew that spending money on a watch was not going to fly. Yes, the first geeky item I pledged to was a watch. This watch connected to your phone and you got notifications. This was before smart watches were the rage. What I did was to first talk up the watch by saying how it could keep me from missing messages on my commute from New York to New Jersey. Well, that didn’t work, so I did what I knew was fail proof: It was an early birthday present to myself. While I was wheeling and dealing with my spouse on this watch, I went to a newfound website of geek items and saw another watch. This time, not only could I get notifications, but I could talk into it. Dick Tracy here I come! Now, I’m talking about two watches. Well, I only have one birthday, so how could I get her to see things from my point of view? Nope, it wasn’t going to happen, so I did the unthinkable and just kept my big mouth shut. The website that had grabbed my attention that I was not mentioning was Kickstarter.

    How to Do Away with Rx Glasses for Life

    How to Do Away with Rx Glasses for Life

    Who wouldn’t want self-adjusting eyeglasses that with a turn of a dial will let you see clearly at a distance and with another twist, can be used as reading glasses? For most people, it means it would do away with getting new prescription glasses every time their eyes change.

    Spend More Time Outdoors with Patio Heaters from BeHa

    Spend More Time Outdoors with Patio Heaters from BeHa

    The UK is not the land of eternal summer and year-round warm weather. It is, however, a great place for socialising and enjoying frequent get-togethers for big and small occasions, all throughout the year. Would it not be nice to be able to use your outdoor seating areas all year round? Or to enjoy long evenings sat outside at pubs or restaurants? Your patio use does not have to be limited to summer months, the area can be used for hosting get-togethers during the colder months as well; you just need to add a little heat. The solution? BeHa’s patio heaters.Words and ideas of the Nordic lifestyle have received a fair share of attention over the last few years. If you have heard of the concept of “hygge,” you will know that Scandis highly prioritise being cosy and comfortable. Of course, to incorporate this into our daily lives, we have found the necessary gadgets for achieving the comfort we so desire.Another term widely used, specifically in Norway, is “utepils.” It literally translates to “outdoor beer,” and is an expression for it being warm enough to drink a beer outside. The first outdoor beer of the year is considered a special moment, as sitting outside is finally an option again. You can, of course, shorten the wait for this, and make the outdoor seating become inviting sooner.If you do not want to wait for the temperature to rise to make use of your garden furniture, or would like to stay outside after the sun has gone down, patio heaters are just what you need. They will give you a head start to enjoying food and beverages outside in the spring, and can extend your summer by allowing you to still sit outside when it gets chilly in the autumn and winter months. In other words, investing in patio heaters means buying yourself more time outdoors.Patio heaters will open the doors to spending more time outside, which makes it easier to take advantage of all of your space. The heaters allow for enjoying longer nights outdoors, when the temperature otherwise would not have permitted it. Now, when hosting evening get-togethers, the festivities can be enjoyed on your patio or in your garden. Or, if your guest list exceeds the number of people your house can comfortably fit, extending the party to the garden allows more guests to attend. Patio heaters can be a real game-changer.BeHa’s patio heaters use near-wave radiant heat. This means that the infrared waves do not waste heat or energy heating up the air around you, they only heat you. The heat reaches you regardless of any wind, which is one of the perks of choosing an infrared heater. And if the thought of infrared radiation scares you, you have nothing to worry about. It is just heat, nothing else.If you are concerned that you do not have the skills, knowledge, or time to set up patio heaters for your outdoor areas, no need to panic. Installing patio heaters does not have to be a big job. BeHa’s patio heaters come in two models, one for wall mounting and one for ceiling mounting. For ceiling mounting, you will need a hook that meets requirements for the heater, then simply hang it from its chain. For wall mounting, the bracket for the heater is fastened with four screws. Neither of these are large operations, and definitely something most people can do without needing a whole lot of tools and equipment.So, what are you waiting for? Give your social life a boost by warming up your outdoor areas this autumn!Scandinavian Trading Ltd imports and retails BeHa heaters in the UK. Browse products here.
