Brian's Mancave

Guest post from: Steve Delaney:

Yesterday I went over to my buddy Brian's house to watch the game. He had just gotten a security system installed from home security systems Bedford in his house. He showed me all of the cool features that it had and it really made me want to get one. There had been a string of break ins in his neighborhood and he felt safer with a security system. I can't say that I blame him. He also went on and on about his new hot tub that he just had installed. This guys was living the dream, he has a motorcycle, a hot tub, a huge flat screen TV and a fully stocked bar in his man cave. I can't even convince my wife to let me have a man cave much less a motorcycle. We sat down to watch the game on his brand new reclining leather sofa, man I was in heaven or should I say man heaven. We grilled out porterhouse steaks on his new grill and they tasted like they had been cooked by the gods themselves.

The Marriage Ceremony

The state of Florida does not require a specified language or protocol for use in the performance of a marriage ceremony.

If both parties agree and the notary performing the wedding or justice of the peace or clerk of the courts the wedding party may request that their own written vows be used in the ceremony. There is also no age limit put on the person who signs as a witness to the marriage. The person performing the marriage should have a brief conversation if the witness is young so they understand the seriousness of being a witness. There is no law required in Florida that they actually have to have a witness although there is a blank spaces provided for this on the marriage application it is recommended that they have leased two witnesses. If you have any questions concerning your marriage vows or procedures during the ceremony be sure to have a short rehearsal with the person performing the wedding they can it put your mind at ease and answer all your questions.

Credit Card Payments

I just can't understand why some merchants do not accept credit card payments. Most of the costumers pay with debit or credit cards for convenience. Just the other day, I wanted to have a full tank gas but, when I stopped in a gas station, it only accepts cash. Now, who would want to walk all the way to the counter to pay cash? It's a hassle! I drove to the next corner and gas up my car. Most of the gas stations have merchant accounts but, few of them didn't bother to get one. That's really ridiculous because most people do not carry cash.

If they only know how to find cheaper transaction rates online then maybe, they already applied for a merchant account. Anybody would just stop by the gas station and gas up but, because of the inconvenience, some customers would just go and find another gas station. That's just easy for to do. Of course, establishments will lose their customers easy if they do not accept cards.

How about you? Do you own a business? You should not neglect this important transaction from the costumers. Your sales will improve if you accept cards. Do not just rely on cash payments. Just make a comparison and find the best credit card processing online.

Overseas Wedding

If you are planning to get married in another country there are some precautions you must take so your big day will go off perfectly.

Be sure to check with the local officials of the country you are planning to have your wedding in to make sure you have secured the proper paperwork. Make sure after the wedding that the event is properly recorded and documented. If you are getting married in a civil ceremony make sure the person officiating is qualified to do so. One of the most important items to check out is make sure that the marriage will be honored by the United States. For example if you were to get married in Brazil the marriage is not recognized in the United States and you would have to get remarried here. Last but not least be sure that the company providing services for your wedding do not try to add extras or overcharge you on the agreed price. To safeguard yourself do a written contract and only pay half down and the remainder at the conclusion of your wedding if they don't want to do this they are not a reputable company and I would suggest that you look elsewhere.

Wedding Centerpiece Scam

When planning your wedding is very important when choosing your florist that you know them personally or have check their references.

The reason to be cautious is you may get scammed when selecting your wedding centerpiece. How does this work? When you meet with your florist they will probably make up a sample centerpiece for you. The centerpiece will contain many different types of flowers and other decorations attached to it. When the big day comes and your flowers are delivered you may discover during the reception that many of the flowers you have chosen are not included in it. Substituted are less expensive flowers or less flowers than what you had agreed to.

How do I protect myself from such a scam? One way when making up your contract with the florist be sure to state what type of flowers exactly will make up the centerpieces how many flowers will be included in the centerpiece and how many centerpieces will be supplied to the wedding. Also check with your friends and neighbors if they have used the florist before and if they perform well. You could check with the Better Business bureau and see if there are any complaints against the company. Remember companies catering to weddings the bottom line is profit and anyway they can cut costs and you are not aware of it benefits them

Wedding Reception

A wedding reception is a celebration by family and friends at the completion of a marriage ceremony. This is the first time that the couple will receive the public as man and wife.

The average cost of a wedding reception could be anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars to $20,000. You could spend half of your budget on the wedding reception. It depends on how much food and alcohol you have to purchase. One way to help control the cost of the reception would be to do a lot of it yourself. You could have family and friends bring a dish similar to a pot luck dinner. If you limit your alcohol to beer and wine this will be a great savings. Depending on your budget you might want to have your wedding at a all inclusive wedding chapel then you will just pay a flat fee for everything. When planning your wedding reception you have many options open to you to control costs it just takes a little prior planning.

Super Bowl Payoff

If you would be married to an NFL football player what kind of monetary re-wards with your family receive from your husband playing in the Super Bowl?

When the regular season ends so does the obligation of the team to pay the player from this point on they are paid out of a fund from NFL. The league deposits money in the team account depending on how far they advance in the playoffs is determined how much they make.

For example a team that won their division the player will receive $22,000 per game. If they would advance to play in a game for the conference championship they will receive $40,000 per game. The winners of the Super Bowl will receive 88,000 and the loser's 44,000 not bad for a days work. So the maximum out a player could receive for winning the Super Bowl would be about $172,000. Another benefit would be certain types incentives offered by advertisers that could be very lucrative. I am sure we will see you many players of the winning team the New York Giants selling various items on TV such as soaps, cars, and athlete equipment.

One way to prevent having a check returned on your account would be to have overdraft protection from your bank. You may have your savings account link to your checking account or a credit card or a line of credit set up especially for this purpose.
