When to Ignore Your Phone


There are times when you really need to answer your phone, no matter where you are or what you are doing. If someone in your family is going through an emergency situation, then you want to have your phone on hand. But, people use their phones too much these days. I understand this. I have a problem with this, too. Most of the time, we don’t really need to have our phones on hand. Most of the time we will be okay if we choose to ignore the ringing of our phones. When I was reading a blog post that was featured on the blog of Marc Sparks, I got some of the advice that I needed in regard to using my phone. There are times when I just should not be answering my phone, and the post that I read helped to identify some of those times for me.

There are times when using a phone is unprofessional. There are times when using a phone can make me appear to be someone that I am not – someone who is rude, impolite, and unprofessional. I don’t want to appear to be someone who does not care about others, and I don’t want my obsession with my phone to end up costing me a job. The blog post that I read shared how I should not answer my phone when I am in any kind of a meeting, and I think that this is advice that I should be following. My phone is important to me at times, and I really want to have it on hand, but I need to ignore it when I am in a professional situation and taking part in a meeting.

Highland Village and the Houston Real Estate Scene

Prior to the 1940s, Houston, Texas had no shopping centers. That decade saw its first batch. The Highland Village Shopping Center was one of these pioneers. Since then Highland Village has passed through various ownership and management. Its most recent owner has held that position since 1991. That is when the establishment became owned by Haidar Barbouti and his Highland Village Holdings. Haidar has been an owner who takes a very hands on approach to ownership as its property manager and broker. And he has done so enormously effectively.

To date he has created a shopping environment that is coveted by chain stores all over the country. The center has been specifically chosen by such popular stores as Starbucks, Crate & Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and an Apple Store. This last is one of the most recent additions to the center and was only the second Apple Store in Texas to include a room specifically for special presentations. Barbouti has also freely given space to less well known but much-needed stores like Highland Village Adoption Center and Quality Life Fitness. For his great work of development Barbouti is greatly esteemed and admired in the Houston real estate scene. This is not surprising. There is no doubt that with his help the Houston real estate industry will go far.

The Benefits of Diligent Dog Care

Caring for Your Canine
Taking care of a dog is no different than caring for yourself. Every dog, small or large, wants to feel loved, clean, fed and satisfied. There are many benefits to diligent dog care that result in a happy, fun relationship with your canine. It’s easier to train a puppy that learns early on that being clean, fed and exercised is how you show you care. There can be no skimping when it comes to dog care. For a beloved, pet, only the best will do. There are several things to keep in mind when creating a regular routine of dog care. These include:
. Choose only highest quality dog food
. Regular bathing and grooming
. Check canine teeth for problems
. Provide protection from fleas and ticks
. Plan a regular program of exercise
. Spend time relaxing and bonding

Choosing the Highest Quality Dog Food
Feeding a dog takes attention to detail. A puppy’s digestive tract is far more delicate than an older dog’s. The type of dog food should suit the dog’s particular age and provide healthful nutrients for growth, strong bones and muscles.

Beneful Dog Food is a top brand of the Purina Company that offers a broad range of choices from wet dog food to baked snacks in flavors dogs can’t resist. Purina is known worldwide for excellent, high quality products, including Beneful Dog Food.

Beneful’s wet dog food is available in twenty flavor varieties and textures like big chunks or chopped. Sizes of Beneful range from three ounces to ten ounce tubs that are conveniently resealable. The twenty varieties include top quality chicken, lamb, pork or beef and also green beans, barley, carrots and rice for extra nutrition.

Regular Bathing and Grooming
Nothing makes a dog feel as good as a regular bath and grooming. Bathing and grooming can be done at home or by a professional pet groomer. If you choose to bathe and groom your pet at home, invest in dog shampoos that don’t have harsh chemicals. Purchase a nail clipper according to your pet’s size. There are also hair de-shedders and electric and cordless fur trimmers.

Check Canine Teeth for Problems
Canine teeth should be checked regularly from early puppy teething stages. Very often, puppy teeth develop problems that go unnoticed until they are older. Start checking canine teeth early to insure proper growth. Generally, dogs that eat the best foods develop fewer problems with their teeth. Some signs of dental problems in dogs include
excessive drooling, bad breath, loose teeth, gum inflammation, cysts beneath the tongue and tumors in gums.

Provide Protection from Fleas and Ticks
Most dog shampoos provide protection from fleas and ticks. Also available are collars and convenient applicators that provide full insect protection from infestation.

Plan a Regular Program of Exercise
Dogs need plenty of exercise. Moderate the type of exercise according to the dog’s age and also the climate.

Spend time Relaxing and Bonding
Dogs feel most loved when their owners spend time just relaxing and bonding with them. This can be done indoors or outdoors.
