“THEFTIE”: YOUR SMARTPHONE JUST GOT SMARTER

You’ve heard of taking a “selfie,” in which you take a picture of yourself and post it to social media. You might even be an avid fitness fanatic and therefore have even taken a “runfie,” which is the popular term for a photo of yourself before, during, or after any serious exercise effort. But if stealing smartphones with the intent of dumping their data and reselling them is your idea of a hobby, you’ve got a whole new photo op waiting for you: the “theftie.”
Thanks to extra measures being developed and marketed by cell phone manufacturers and security companies, your phone may now be able to take a photo of the thief who stole it and email ...

Raising rabbits as pets

Rabbits make excellent pets for country homes that don't have the space for larger livestock
Rabbits are fairly easy animals to raise, since bulk of their diet is fresh grass hays such as wheat, oat, brome, coastal, or Bahia. Smaller rabbits, such as Netherland Dwarfs, Mini Lops, Dutch, and the American Fuzzy Lop, are particularly well-suited to homes with children. They're light enough for a child to handle easily and they love to be lavished with attention. In fact, many people say raising a rabbit is a lot like raising a kitten. Both cats and rabbits have the same kind, yet aloof temperament.

10 Unintentional Lessons My Wife And Daughters Taught Me About Life

The thought of raising a daughter really scared me. I knew that relationships between fathers and daughters and the bond they form are often talked about as among the most important of their lives, and I wasn't sure if I was strong enough for the challenge.
I remember the day like it was yesterday: Four years ago, my wife and I walked in to get the ultrasound to determine the sex of our second child, and when the technician announced that we were having a girl, I went into shock. My wife says that it lasted about an hour or so, but I really don't remember. I do remember trying the best that I could to process what I had just heard, but after that, it's all a blur.
When my daughter was born ...

10 Things Your Daughter Should Know by the Time She Is 10

1. How adored she is. No matter what you disagree on and even though sometimes you may yell, she should know she is the center of your universe -- always.
2. How to cook. She should be able to prepare small snacks such as eggs, pasta, toast, sandwiches etc. My daughter loves to cook and letting them experiment enforces this life skill.
3. Body changes are coming and what to expect. She needs to know that along with these hormonal changes will come some emotional changes as well. I have bought my daughter a great book by American Girl called The Care and Keeping of You that breaks down the physical and emotional changes in a very easy to understand way. I highly rec ...

How Cruise Ships Fill Their Unsold Cabins

Never Considered a Cruise?
Here’s Why You Should Think Again
A luxury cruise is one of life’s pure joys.  Today’s modern cruise liners are engineering marvels; floating 5-star hotels that offer the best service, accommodation, cuisine, and activities.  They visit exotic locales, with non-stop relaxation or stimulation, depending on your pleasure.

But, the best news is that due to the slowdown in travel caused by the recession an ...
