All of them are not suitable for mass texts
You might want to use them for headlines too. Read the rest of this entry
Actually I planned to do interviews with strong women. A couple of them have been published so far. After reading one of these interviews Scott was so thrilled that he asked as well for an interview. And hey, we all love a good story, and Scott has to tell one. So thanks so much, Scott, for joining us today.
Tell us about yourself:
My name is Scott Lenig. I am a 24 year old Writer and I unload trucks at a dock to earn extra money. Hey, you have to pay the bills some how. I live alone but I do have an older Sister, and of course a Mom and Dad.
We do have our issues, but some how I would not trade them for the world. Good bad or otherwise, they helped make me what I am today and for that, I am thankful.
How would you describe the relationship to your mother?
My relationship with my Mom has had it’s ups and downs over the years. But the trials and tribulations we have faced have only brought us closer to each other in the long run. Read the rest of this entry

Today I am inviting you to watch some of my photos.
I love to take photos. My small digi-cam is always with me.
Recently I have bought a little tripod.
Makes some shots easier.
And I started to experiment with the so-called “Best Shot” equipment of my camera.
There are presets ready installed to enhance certain pictures, like the sports program enhances pictures while the object is moving.
One of the presets is made for sunrises and sunsets. Read the rest of this entry
This is our first interview with a strong woman about her career.
Thanks to Lisa for taking the time to answer our questions.
Tell us about yourself.

Many people don’t really understand what I do, but basically I help people with career related matters.
I help people who are unsure about career choice using a variety of career counselling strategies. I also help people who are already pursuing a career to address issues, develop a career progression plan, learn more about further education and training or change jobs.
Another part of my role is assisting people develop a CV, write applications and improve their job interview skills. My day can vary from helping someone prepare a CV, counselling someone who has lost their job due to the economic crisis, to interview coaching someone via Skype to prepare them for an upcoming job interview.

Today I am going to start a new series about fonts.
I’ll call it font of the week, although the posts will be kind of irregular, I’ll guess. There are so many subjects to blog about. So I’ll try to post once a week on a font.
You can tell me your favorite font in a comment or via my facebook-page .
Why? – Because I will be talking about those fonts you will be telling me, in a future post.
Since we are starting today, I am the one to chose.
My favorite font is “Bauhaus”.
The design of Bauhaus is based on a prototype created in the middle of the 20s of last century by Herbert Bayer, who was a graphic designer, painter, photographer, sculptor, art director and architect. Bayer taught at the famous Bauhaus of Dessau. Read the rest of this entry
Hello, I’m Sharon. I live in Redditch, today I went to explore the Forge Mill Needle Museum and find out more about the History of the town in which I live. Before I tell you about the museum I will just give a brief overview of the history of Redditch…
The History of Redditch
Redditch is a small town just outside Birmingham in England. With a population of just it has always been a town associated with industry and manufacturing; from Fishing Tackle and spring making to Royal Enfield Motorcycles and push bikes. But the industry for which Redditch became world renowned in the 19th Century was needle making.
The manufacturing of needles began in the Redditch area in the 1600’s. Initially the industry was slow to grow with less than 10 million needles per week being made in Redditch in the 1700’s, but by the 1860’s Redditch dominated the production in Britain making over 100 million needles per week. In the 1841 census every man, woman and child of the population of 904 was listed as employed in a role within the needle manufacturing industry.
Needles were manufactured for numerous uses, from embroidery to hat pins and bookbinding to sewing machine needles and fish hooks and shipped around the world. Later tattoo needles, gramophone needles and surgical needles were also manufactured here. Today, Needle Industries in Studley (just outside Redditch) are the sole manufacturers of sewing needles in Britain; producing approximately 400 million needles per year. Read the rest of this entry
I am a small company.
Actually I am a single woman company.
But there are staffs too.
Little critters try to help me through the day.
Our ideas how to do a job and when to do a job differ – alot.
They are watching me, they are supervising me, they care for quality in the company.
Sure, a tired Helen is a nasty Helen and an unproductive Helen.
So they sometimes tell me when to stop, to recharge and get new energy for the job.
This month I am going to introduce

This might not be important for many people.

All my life I have worked with the Macintosh.
Everything I did so far, was done with an Apple computer.
I always admired the genius of Steve Jobs.
