Irwin Consulting Services Review: Kuinka pysyäkseen turvassa tänä jouluna

 

Monet rakas tavat loma kautta, koska se on aika, jossa aitoa onnea, rakkautta ja nautintoa tulee runsaasti monin paikoin. Mutta sen lisäksi, että ihmiset myös kohtaamaan haasteen kylmempää sää ja valitettavasti onnettomuuksia joskus tapahtuu, joka liittyy pitää lämpimänä aikana kylminä kuukausina. Toiset käyttävät väärin lämmittimiä ja sähkö huopia ja jopa alkavat tapa uksia lämpimissä takoilla. Koska konsultti yritys, joka on sitoutunut yleiseen turvallisuuteen, Irwin konsultointi Palvelut haluaisi sinun jatkaa lukemista tämän jälkeen ja oppia tärkeitä viitteitä harkitsemaan välttämään vaarallisia tilanteita.

 

Surullista kyllä, loma kausi saattaa tuoda joitakin surullinen uutinen muutaman koti talouksien koska yhteisten onnettomuuksien aikana tähän aikaan vuodesta, joka sisältää keittiö tuli palot, sähkö-tuli palot, ja tuli palot syttyviä esineitä, jotka asetettiin liian lähelle lämmön lähteitä. Ole tietoinen aina, kun olet ruoan laitto, joten vältä hajamielinen. Laita oikea aika taulu ruoan laittoon eri ruokia; Älä tee niitä kaikkia kerralla. Outdoor grillit pitäisi pysyä ulkopuolella, ei väliä kuinka kylmä se on, älä uskalla laittaa sen sisälle talosi.

 

Jotkut perheet haluavat elää joulu kuuset kodeissaan, koska se on kaunis vihreä ulkonäkö. Kuitenkin loma kauden aikana, tällaiset puut voivat tulla suurin palo vaaran kotona. Kerrottava, että se on kasteltava säännöllisesti ja että se voi imeä vettä läpi sen runko. Jos laitat valot puu, varmista, että ne on merkitty sisäkäyttöön ja on UL listalle. Laita puut täplät, jotka olivat kaukana takat ja tilaa lämmittimet, ja myös ei aseta ne tielle exit oven. Älä koskaan käytä eläviä kynttilöitä elävien puiden. Ennen nukkumaanmenoa, Sammuta kaikki sen valot jopa keinotekoisia puita sekä aina, kun perhe menee ulos.

 

Varmista, että pienemmät lapset eivät pääse koriste kynttilöitä liikaa. Oikea sähkö johtojen koriste joulu valot voi myös auttaa sinua välttämään vakavia tilanteita. Hang valot kanssa käyttää muovi liittimiä, koska tapa uksissa kynnet tunkeutuvat johdotus ja aiheuttaa shortsit olivat joskus tilanne muissa koti talouksissa. Tietää, että Overloads ja viallinen johdotus voi johtaa tragedioihin, joten arvioida kunkin merkki jonon johdot huolellisesti ja varmista, että ne ovat kaikki turvassa mitään vaaraa. Ole varovainen käyttäen joitakin jatko johtoja kytkemällä ne valot. Älä koskaan kytke jatko johtoa toiseen jatko johtoon, koska sellainen voi johtaa jännite häviö ja ylikuumeneminen. Paremman suojan, käytä voima nauhat sijaan, että voidaan käyttää sekä sisä-ja ulkokäyttöön. Irrota sisävalaistus säiliöstä, jos se ei ole käytössä. Muita tärkeitä asioita muistaa myös varmistaa, että palo varoittimet talosi ovat oikein työtä, mikä palo sammuttimet on helposti alueilla, investoimalla sää Alert radiot, ja on varovainen käyttää sähkö tilaa lämmittimiä.

 

Ennen kuin käytät savu piippu savu kaasujen aikana loma kautta, puhdista se ensin. Irwin konsultointi palvelut myös ehdottaa käyttäen Arina tai näytön edessä takka. Laita sukat ja muut loma koristeet pois valaistu takka. Järjestä lahjat turvallisessa paikassa, ei edessä takka ja Älä asenna joulu kuusi lähellä sitä välttämään laskemisesta puu tai lahjoja vaarassa tuli palon.

 

Luo asianmukainen palo paeta suunnitelma ja myös kertoa kävijöitä siitä. Älä koskaan laita jotain, joka tekisi vaikeaksi päästä ovet joten vältä huone kalut tai koristeet sen tielle. Varmista, että kaasu linjat oli asianmukaisesti tarkastettu varmistaa turvallisen käytön lämmön talosi. Lataa palo sammuttimet liian ja jos sinulla ei ole mitään, Irwin konsultointi Palvelut kannustaa sinua ostamaan yhden tai kaksi. Investoida savu hälyttimet ja hiilimonoksidi ilmaisimet samoin. On parempi olla koti tilan lämmittimet kanssa TIP-over kytkimet mutta muista laittaa ne pois syttyviä asioita. Lämmitys laitteet on tehty ulkokäyttöön varten pitäisi jäädä ulos, joten älä koskaan laita ne sisälle sisätiloissa lämpöä.

 

Irwin konsultointi Palvelut toivoo turvallisen ja arvokkaan loma kauden sinulle ja perheellesi.

Sunday Soup

It's been freezing all weekend. Not only did we have snow, which actually stayed for three days (and counting...) but for most of today we had temperatures of -5C (-9C! on the other side of town).

 

We don't get freezing temperatures that often this close to the sea.

 

It is of no surprise then that I have craved hot soup all day. :) The drawback was that I needed to use things I had in the kitchen as I had no intention of going to the shops. The pavements are all covered in ice...

 

Today's odds'n'ends soup turned out tasty enough, albeit I wouldn't say it's a new favourite. It also had some kick to it as I found a green chili pepper in the fridge. 

 

 

What else is in there:

 

- onion

- garlic

- courgette

- carrot

- peas

- sweetcorn

- small potato

- stock

- blob of cream cheese

- salt, pepper, paprika

- green chili pepper

 

some grated cheese on top.

 

Happy Soup Sunday!

A Fun, Enjoyable Historical Young Adult Book Not To Be Miss
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue - Mackenzi Lee

Historical fiction is a genre I am most interested to read but have a fear that I might put it down. One week ago, I have heard a lot of good reviews and opinions about The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue and with an upcoming book discussion and Skype with Mackenzi Lee. Here's some thing I have to be honest about - I would never pick up a book with a book cover that features a real person. I admit I was skeptical at first but after a while, just trusting my intuitive I give it a go and read it.

 

I have no regrets in the end.

 

Set in a 18th century period, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue begins with Henry 'Monty' Montague, a care less, young drunk charmer who happens to be a born gentleman from a high-class family waking up next to his best friend Percy, one day before their Grand Tour around Europe. Tagging along is Henry's sister Felicity, who is on her way to a boarding school. Every thing was thought as plan by Henry's father, only that it goes very wrong because of Monty's behavior that leads to (surprise) an unexpected turn of events filled with adventure, mystery, conspiracy, a little bit of science and of course, romance. For a young adult book, its a fun read. What is more surprising is that its so light and easy, its enjoyable in many ways. While its pretty straight forward, its the combination of all that makes this relaxing that doesn't need much deep thought but just sit back, rest and drink your preferred tea (or coffee).

 

I would recommend this without a doubt for anyone who wants light reading or a historical buff but in a young adult manner. I can't say much as it will spoil a whole lot more but this is a book, despite how people say never judge a book by its cover, should pick it up and read it.

Who am I? : "A Scanner Darkly" by Philip K. Dick
A Scanner Darkly - Philip K. Dick

I'm a big Pynchon fan, too, so don't get me wrong here, but it seems to me like the main difference between Dick's writing style and Pynchon's--or at least, the difference that mostly accounts for Dick being treated as a "pulp" author with some interesting ideas whereas Pynchon is considered a major "literary" figure--is simply that Dick tends to write in crisp, straightforward sentences that just directly say what he means to say, whereas Pynchon's writing is (in)famously dense with allusion and rambling esoteric figurative expressions to the point where it can be an intellectual exercise in its own right just trying to figure out what the hell Pynchon is trying to say.

 

All of which makes major Dick novels like “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” or “Radio Free Albemuth” sort of resemble, IMHO, what “Gravity's Rainbow” might have looked like if Pynchon had been working with editors who expected him to actually keep tight deadlines.

 

I think Dick was really gifted as a wry satirist, too, and this is something I think he's often under-appreciated for. Probably my favourite single episode in all of Dick's stories I've ever read--and I was quite overjoyed to see this faithfully recreated in the film adaptation--is still the "suicide" sequence from “A Scanner Darkly”. In short, I don't think Dick was ever bad at writing--he just doesn't seem to have had any real interest in the kind of writing that people like James Joyce or William Burroughs (or Pynchon, for whom to my mind it seems that both Joyce and Burroughs were major stylistic influences) were famous for.

 

 

If you're into SF, read on.

It Takes Two to Tumble by Cat Sebastian
It Takes Two to Tumble: Seducing the Sedgwicks - Cat Sebastian

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Phillip has spent most of his life at sea, as the Captain, he knows his place and is effective in managing his people. When his ship finally berths after two years, his shore leave allows him to go home for awhile, a home where letters have informed him that his wife has died and his three children are running wild. 
Ben enjoys his job as the vicar; it allows him to see to everyone. When he gets tasked with taking care of the absent Captain's children, he may be in over head. 
Phillip and Ben haven't been able to fully admit certain truths to themselves but as their relationship grows, they begin to become whole through each other. 
 
Phillip hadn't planned on lusting after the vicar. 
 
The first in a new series, the author introduces us to Phillip, the stern rigid naval captain and Ben, the affable mellow vicar. Both characters were very contained people in their own way. Phillip has dyslexia but has managed to figure out how to hide it and be effective as captain and he also carries around some melancholy which seems to be due to not being able to fully be his self. Ben had to essentially be the father to his brothers as theirs ascribed to a very bohemian philosophy that led to a lack of structure or responsibility. Both acknowledged their attraction to men but kept it in a contained box that as long as they didn't make it personal, putting real feeling in to it, they could lead "normal" lives. When they meet each other and start to develop those more emotional feelings, beyond just sexual, hard truths have to be recognized. 
 
But comfort and ease suddenly seemed like pale and flimsy things. 
 
I loved how Ben and Phillip's personalities played off each other. Ben's effortless charm and lightness cracked open Phillip's hard walls and helped him be at ease more, while Phillip's strength and willing to prod at Ben helped Ben release his more passionate side. They became more themselves through the other and there is nothing more romantic than that. For how much Phillip's children played a part in the story plot, I thought they were strangely more absent from the story than warranted. We get some scenes with Phillip bonding but I never felt like I knew them; they felt like obvious plot elements instead of woven into the story. I also thought Phillip's relationship with his former Lt. McCarthy needed to be flushed out more. It started off like there was a big emotional attachment but then it seemed to be more on the physical side, not quite fully explained well enough. 
 
"When we're together it feels right. I want to go down that path and see what's there."
"With me?" It was a hoarse whisper.
"Together."
 

 
This is my first book by this author and I was impressed with the ease of her writing flow, how secondary characters felt complete and added so much to the story, and the historical feel. This had faint whisperings of the Sound of Music to it and I could read all day of Ben taking some starch out of the Captain and Phillip igniting some fire in the vicar. There's a slow burn feel as their relationship starts off challenging, to tentative, to heated and I enjoyed how they both were, somewhat, virgins not only emotionally but physically and we got see them explore and learn together. There's also a hot desk scene that you won't want to miss. 
 
I missed interaction scenes with Phillip's children to get to know them better which in turn would have created more depth in Phillip's character, the middle seemed to meander a smidgen as the outer story took over more, but I delighted in Ben and Phillip's relationship. There's some bitter sweetness to the ending as Phillip and Ben don't quite get the full happily ever after they deserve due to the time period and country they live in, but they worked for and got more than most do. The author's talent with emotions will have me searching out her books from here on out.
