Leave a comment

Using the electronic cigarette is a trend nowadays. This is made possible through the computer and internet as these products are mostly being sold through online vendors. Busy people, those who live in distant places, and those who cannot visit the stores can benefit much from this kind of selling. Online, there are so many stores to choose from. Their existence makes people hard to choose the right store. But it is very important to choose the right online store in order to get the best services and products.

blonde-apollo-ecigsThe following discuss the guidelines when you buy electronic cigarettes online so you don’t get scammed:

1. Read the reviews

Reviews and comments can be made by customers or manufactures themselves. In order not to fall the sweet comments made by the latter, it is very important to read or visit two or more sites. This way you can really know more about the online store. Usually, those customers who have disappointing experiences will voice out online. This is very important and informative in selecting the right store.

2. Check the pricing

Since you want to buy electronic cigarettes online, take time to compare the prices. This is a frugal attitude of a customer. The tight competition of selling electronic cigarettes online makes the manufacturers to decide for low prices. But quality must not be forgotten, too. Online, prices just differ from stores near you because the products are directly sold by the manufacturers.

But shipping must be put into consideration, too. Some sellers online may charge an extra fee for the shipping. And there might be fees about return and exchange of items. This will add up to the cost spent in purchasing the items. So this cannot be a saving method anymore.

3. Read the return and exchange guidelines

Before you buy electronic cigarettes online, you must take time reading the guidelines for return and exchange. This is very important in order not to waste every penny spent for the item. Cost can be part in the guidelines. Some customers failed to read such guidelines so they were just shocked to know that they needed to pay for the return or exchange of the item. Or, the days for return and exchange take too long.

4. Test the customer service

It is very crucial to check the quality of the customer service since you contact it whenever you have queries. You can ask a question or two and check if the response is prompt or too late, if the person is respectful, or if the person can be understood. Poor customer service is a common issue.

In times of problems about the items, there is no one to go to but the customer service in the site.

5. Check their certificates

Online selling must not be bogus, or you must not fall under such kind of business. Or else, the money spent for the item will be put to waste. Always look around for the certificates.

There is really nothing much to worry if you want to buy electronic cigarettes online. Just take heed of these guidelines and you will get the best services and products. As a long term user of the e cigs, I suggest you to try out this site for the best products and pricing.

Why Is It So Hard To Quit Smoking

Leave a comment

quit smoking To quit smoking is tougher than starting to smoke. This is largely due to the nicotine content of tobacco which is addictive. The longer the person smokes, the higher the nicotine content is stored in the body. And the more it is difficult to take out from the body system. According the scientists, lung cancer and other respiratory diseases develop depend on the duration of smoking rather than short term quantity. It means that somebody who smokes 2 packs a day for 20 years will be at less risk than someone who smoke 1 pack of cigarette a day for 40 years. Lung cancer patients are more vulnerable at the age of 60 or older.

A person who smokes in months or years will become drug dependent to nicotine. Nicotine has this strong effect because of the stimulating and relaxing effects it leaves in the brain. The hormone in the brain, specifically the dopamine, becomes dependent to nicotine. Whenever a person ceases smoking, this hormone looks for it. It sends signals to the body that it needs nicotine for it to work well, for the person to feel well.

Some researches showed that quitting cigarette is just as hard as quitting heroin. The claims might not be as serious as it sounds, the facts are overwhelming. According to the Centers for Diseases Control (CDC), cigarette smoke harm every single organ in your body. Lungs and respiratory system are greatly affected.

Other less serious side effects related to cigarette smoking are yellow teeth and nails, stinky mouth and smelly clothes, baldness, cataracts, still birth or miscarriage, and many more.

There are so many side effects that can occur when a smoker tries to quit smoking. These can be salivation, headache, dizziness, irritability, hunger, insomnia, tiredness, tingling, constipation, and poor concentration. These are unpleasant and disturbing feelings and events that may discourage a smoker from stopping to smoke.

2. Friends who have successfully quit smoking. Since these people already succeeded the syndromes brought about by nicotine, they can teach the smoker on what to do in order to successfully quit it.

It has been a while since I come back to my hometown. Life in a big city has always been a rush. Traffic, busy people, and polluted airways make people forget all about relaxation and enjoying nature. This is peaceful and calm….

First Muscovy Duck Eggs

Leave a comment

I have 2 Muscovy ducks for about 2 months now. I bought it from the chicken market near my home. They usually hang around in my small pond and the river outside to find food. I wasn’t so sure why they didn’t breed any eggs because they were already grown when I bought them. A week ago, I saw the two of them mating, so I guess it’s about time.

They didn’t have any shelter or cage to live in at that time. I left them sleep outside and they didn’t seem to have any problem with it. So 3 days went by without them laying any eggs. I thought of building them a shelter and a man-made nest so the female can start laying eggs.

duck house

At first they didn’t get used to the new home, so at night they went under and slept there. I thought this was a failure because the shelter is too high. So the next day, I built the stairs for them to access their home easily. Amazingly, 2 days after I build the home, the female lays the first egg. I was so happy.

duck eggs

The female started to lay consistently 1 egg a day. It is exciting for us because this is our first time raising Muscovy ducks so we didn’t know what to expect. Seems like they instinctively know what is a nest and lay eggs in it. I heard that unlike other types of domestic ducks which don’t know how to hatch, Muscovy ducks hatch and raise their youngsters by themselves.

There are plenty of food down in the lake and I occasionally see them searching for crabs and snails in the mud. I feed them plenty. Mainly chicken processed foods and whole wheat. Some people told me that processed food is not good because of chemicals added, some said it is better because of the nutrient content. I feed them both anyways. I also heard that Muscovy ducks also eat mosquito and bugs – that’s how they got the name Musco – though I never seen them eating bugs with my own eyes.

muscovy duck

Muscovy ducks are pretty quiet. They are probably the quietest ducks there is. Unlike my other ducks – our Pekins, they make plenty of noise, even when they eat. Muscovy ducks don’t eat like they are starving either, they eat after the others…sometimes they got attacks by other kind of ducks and can’t eat enough. So I separate them with the others. They seems calm and peaceful now. I also hate the Pekins, they are stupid. I make a nest for them to lay eggs. They lay eggs in the pond. I sometimes found 1 or 2 eggs laying in the water near the bank in the bushes, the rest probably sinks into the deeper parts.

muscovy-duckOne of them flew away on night when I left them outside. I though I lost one. But amazingly, 1 day later, she came back. Muscovy ducks are smart. They remember where their home is. I was concern about their ability to fly so well so I cut off their wing feathers though. Unlike other ducks which like to swim alot, these Muscovy like dryness and they usually stay on the tree branches.

Unlike my chicken, ducks seem to have strong resistance against the weather changing. Some cold early mornings I went to check on my chicken, I found that the Muscovy an Pekin ducks are already in the water splashing. They enjoy it actually. In the wild, Muscovy ducks are said to be good for nature as they eat insects and mosquitoes.

This is probably the first time my female Muscovy duck lays eggs. I’m not expecting too much results in hatched eggs but it is still a good start. Hopefully a good amount generation of Muscovy ducklings will hatch and thrive. It still a long time to go, about 2-3 months, before we can start enjoying our Muscovy duck roast.

 Some awesome facts about Muscovy ducks:

In China, when they had a huge problem with Locusts and nothing they could do to stop them, the Chinese release Muscovy ducks to the wild. The result is amazing. The ducks eat the Locusts and thus stop the swarm on crops.

Muscovy ducks eat algae and weed in the water. This help clean the water and thus makes the eco system more healthy and complete.

Muscovy eat roaches. They also eat left over foods in the farm so reduce the population of rats in the area.
