Buying a NEW CAR?? Top 10 things you should know before buying......

1. Work at your finances and find out what you need to spend every month on transportation. A car shouldn’t be more than 10% of your net pay per month. If it’s more, then consider leasing a car rather than buying one.

2. Before you settle anything, determine what the target price is. Four figure deductions are available with virtually every make.

3. Never sign an arbitration clause or dummy financial forms. Try and get finance from a different source, a bank or financial institution.

4. Haggling should get you a good deal aside from browsing around for finance. The market is highly competitive and be sure to check dealer finance, internet lenders, as well as other options.

5. Try and secure a big down payment to reduce the loan to be paid. Calculate your finances and choice of car such that the term of loan is for the short period.

6. Check what buying bonuses are on offer. These diverge from sound system to cash back offers, and 0% financing. Inquire what extras and add ons will be in addition to the price of the car.

7. Make sure to appraise your old car independently if you are looking for a trade in. Look closely to the ‘cost to change’, the difference in value between what the new car costs and what the old one is worth.

8. Learn about warranties, taxes, and insurance. These can consume your budget.

9. Examine the contract well. Understand the fine print. Be sure that paying off the loan ahead of time won’t have any penalty.

10. Check into at least 3-4 dealers to approximate what the best offer is.
Test drive the car prior to finalizing the deal and work through the car booklet page by page to understand everything that the manufacturer needs to tell you. Clarify what is under warranty and what is not.
Never choose a car based on a picture or dream. It is not how you appear in the car that’s important but how well the car will live up to your needs. Be practical and wise; don’t buy a model because the dealership is offering up a holiday for two or a low interest scheme. Distinguish a vehicle that suits your needs before putting yourself to a barrage of marketing.

Mano del Desierto is located 75 kilometers to the south of Antofagasta, take Route 28, to Route 5. The sculpture is located 300 meters from the side of northbound Route 5 which is part of the Panamerican Highway.75 kilometers to the south of Antofagasta,
Mario Irarrázabal has also produced several other bizarre pieces In Madrid, Venice and Uruguay.
Monumento al Ahogado, constucted in 1982, a sculpture of five fingers partially submerged in sand, located on Parada 4 at Brava Beach, Punta del Este, Uruguay.
"La Mano" by Mario Irarrazabal in Punta del Este (Uruguay)
The Inspiration behind Monumento al Ahogado, was to make a sculpture of a hand “drowning” as a warning to swimmers, as the waters at La Barra up the beach had rougher waves which were better for surfing only, while the other way, waters at Solanas were much more suited for swimming practice and windsurfing activities.

Windser N.S. Pumpkin Regatta...Uh,what,WHAT?!?(Some Weird News for ya)☻

Every October in Town of Windsor, Nova Scotia, Lake Pesaquid becomes a spectacle with giant decorated pumpkins sailing across its waters. Along with other Pumpkin related contests the Pumpkin Regatta has become a huge hit in the community. Individuals go to great lengths to carve and decorate their vessels.

“In the first year of the event, 1999, The Pumpkin Regatta, with an operating budget of $50.00, attracted about 2,000 skeptical spectators who turned out to watch five brave – and no doubt equally skeptical – participants attempt to manoeuvre their hollowed-out giant pumpkins across Lake Pesaquid.
So novel was the idea of racing giant pumpkins that local merchants and local media were quick to get on-side. The 1st Annual Pumpkin Regatta attracted national attention, and Windsor – “The Little Town of Big Firsts” – could now claim another first – Giant Pumpkin Racing!”

World's Largest Skateboard Ramp!!!

The roll-in is 180 feet
The roll-in is 180 feet
For Bob Burnquist and the 75 foot high ramp he built to be the largest skateboard ramp in the world, the sky is the limit. Bob built this mega ramp on his property just East of Oceanside, CA.
“…Speeding down a 180-foot-long roll-in to a ramp that launches them across a 70-foot gap with trapeze netting below. Landing on a 27-foot sloped section, they then boost up to 50 feet above the ground from a 30-foot quarterpipe. A shorter route begins with a 55-foot-tall platform leading to a 50-foot gap, and the 30-foot quarterpipe.”
“That mind-set helps on the Mega Ramp, where skaters reach speeds of up to 55 miles an hour and soar like stuntmen.”

MY SON would LOVE this & his father, they both LOVE to skateboard which was the main reason for me posting this blog. Pretty cool, eh! ☻ Hope you all enjoyed and hope you all check out my polls on the right!! & again THANKS sooo much for visiting!

An AMAZING Underwater Sculptures by: Jason de Caires Taylor♥

Underwater Sculpture Park

The Underwater Sculpture Park is the work of sculptor Jason Taylor from England, who has a passion for creating fantastic and unique pieces of work depicting Grenada’s colourful history and folklore and placing them underwater. All of the sculptures are in beautiful clear shallow water easily accessible by divers and snorkelers. The sculptures end up creating artificial reefs, and enhancing the marine environment.
The response from visitors diving the site has been reported as nothing short of amazement and fascination on the whole concept.
“the artist’s interventions promote hope and recovery, and underline our need to understand and protect the natural world.”

(La jah-bless) from the French, she-devil. Based on Caribbean folklore, the Devil Woman roams at night. Her face resembles that of a corpse, hidden under a beautiful wide-brimmed hat.

The Lost Correspondent
The desk is laminated with original newspaper articles dating back to the 1970’s.

Moilinere bay is now home to sixty-five sculptures,
covering an area of 800sq metres. It is located two
miles north of the capital St Georges on the west
coast of the island, within an area designated
a National Marine Park.

When staying in Grenada, The Underwater Gallery
would highly recommend Blue Bay lodge.
Located on the West coast, near the small fishing town of Gouyave.
