Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Lanzarote

Celebrating Valentine’s Day in Lanzarote

When February 14th comes around, enamored couples look for new ways to celebrate cheesy love-themed festivities in tandem. Going abroad is always a winner in the romance department, but with trips to the standard getaways of Paris and Rome threatening to break the bank, it’s not always a viable option. Lanzarote on the other hand is proving itself to be great for those wanting to go on cheap holidays, as an added bonus, the weather is balmy throughout the year and the scenery is beautiful. So if you are considering the Canaries for a romantic break this year, here are some of the highlights that will surely stoke the fires of your lover’s heart.

Saturday night at the movies

Enjoy a date night with a difference at Lanzarote’s Cine 6D, a white knuckle cinema trip that will leave you clutching on to your significant other as though your life depended on it. An immersive hybrid of rollercoaster and virtual reality, this is as far away from a romantic-comedy movie as it gets: and it won’t leave you feeling half as queasy.

Take the plunge

No, that’s not a suggestion to pop the question, unless the question is “Can you help me on with my flippers?” Lanzarote has an exquisite underwater landscape for divers to explore together. What could be more heart-melting than an encounter with a pretty sea horse, manta ray or octopus? And underwater, it’s pretty much impossible to have a lover’s tiff. The best diving sites are found in the waters near Puerto del Carmen; just make sure to budget for this, as it’s on the pricier end of the scale of available activities.

Walk on the wild side

If you love wildlife, make time in your schedule for a trip to the Guinate Tropical Park and Penguin Paradise. Wander through lush landscaped gardens and glittering waterfalls and encounter cute critters like meerkats, fennec foxes and parrots. Open from 10am until 5pm daily, it’s great value for money with a flat 14 Euro entry for adults including the recently-opened botanic garden and penguin observatory.

It’s not Paris or Rome, but with its rugged volcanic landscape, beautiful coastline and stunning wildlife, Lanzarote has its own brand of allure for love-struck couples. You might just fall in love with it.

That’s right, I’m packing bags and going a little south to Miami.  Why you might ask? Let me tell you! I’m attending #SoFabUOTR  Last year my sister attended SoFab in Arkansas and had a great time.

Not only did she have a great time, but she also learned a lot. Since I’m a newer contributor to this site we decided it would be a great experience for me too.  I’m really excited to improve my skills as a writer and learn more about social media.

How wireless services and devices can help you stay healthy

American+Heart+Month

February is American Heart Month.  I know we don’t often thing of wireless devices when we talk about heart health, at least I don’t.  Telehealth and wireless devices CAN improve lives.  They can reduce in person trips to the doctors and keep vital records at your fingertips. I love that I can use these apps on both my iPhone 6 and my iPad.  They have enhanced screen resolutions and make it easy to track.

Not only is it great to track both your health activities and records but they also come in handy if you go to the doctor or if you unfortunately have an emergency. Smartphones can play a vital role in getting medical attention within one hour of the onset of cardiac symptoms, as recommended by the Cleveland Clinic. You can store personal medical information on your smartphone that family or medical personnel can access during an emergency.

 

According to a recent U.S. Cellular survey 34 percent of smartphone users have used a phone to help lose weight or improve their health, of those, 66 percent have used an app to keep track of exercise or other fitness activities.

 

Telemedicine makes it easy to contact a medical professional from wherever you are. This makes health care more efficient by enabling practitioners to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients remotely using technology made available through a reliable wireless network like U.S. Cellular. Now, people can use their mobile devices to “virtually” connect to a doctor to discuss their health symptoms, ask questions and learn more about treatment options.  These virtual MDs can also prescribe medicine.

  • It’s convenient for people who might have difficulties coming into a physician’s office because of their remote location, busy schedules, mobility problems or other challenges.
  • It offers people instant, real-time medical consultations.
  • It saves time and money.
  • It’s meant to enhance – not replace – in-person physician visits, which are still recommended for regular care, such as physical exams. Telemedicine is used to treat minor ailments like cold symptoms, which account for nearly a quarter of office visits to primary care doctors.

Thinking about checking out telemedicine?

Ask your Primary Care Physician. Discuss your options with your primary care physician to get their recommendations and see if they already have a relationship with a telemedicine provider.

Check your insurance.  Determine whether your insurance provider covers telemedicine, and if there are any specifications surrounding this coverage.

Do your research.  Third-party medical rating service websites like vitals.com and NCQA.org provide valuable research on various telemedicine practitioners and services.

Thinking of getting your kids a cellphone? Here is a free Parent Child Agreement that really helps start that conversation.

I remember being in Kindergarten and performing in musical programs where we would invite our parents and grandparents to watch.  Back in the day if they wanted a “forever memory” they would record our performance to VHS and that meant lugging one back with the recorder and also hauling the video camera.

Fresh Wreaths from the Christmas Forest

When it comes to Christmas decorations, I truly just love the look of fresh Christmas trees and wreaths. The sight and smell of Forest Fresh pine delights your senses at Christmas, creating a warmth and love in the air. This year, I chose to adorn my door with a wreath from The Christmas Forest. I had my sights set on one of these beautiful wreaths last Christmas season, but unfortunately, I had waited too long and they were sold out.

img369Picked fresh from the Cascade Mountains in Washington State, the handcrafted Christmas wreaths are cut, created and shipped the same day. These are no ordinary wreaths. This is a decoration you will be proud to display at your doorway for your friends and family to see upon their arrival to your home this holiday season. The Christmas Forest has skipped no corners in their creations with lush, full wreaths.

Celebrating Autumn’s Harvest at Windrose Farm in Paso Robles #SunsetSavor #SavorCC #travel #california #farmtotable #harvest

There is something wonderful about eating fresh food on a farm.  I have really come to appreciate farming since living in the Midwest.  Last month I had the opportunity to attend Sunset SAVOR the Central Coast in CA. They offered these amazing adventure tours to highlight some of the awesomeness of the California central coast. I chose to attend the Celebration of Autumn’s Harvest at Windrose Farm in Paso Robles.

Celebrating Autumn’s Harvest at Windrose Farm in Paso Robles #SunsetSavor #SavorCC #travel #california #farmtotable #harvest

The farm was absolutely beautiful.  It was incredibly peaceful.  I enjoyed sitting in one of their many chairs, breathing in the fresh air, and soaking up the warm sun.  It was a perfect start to a perfect day.

Celebrating Autumn’s Harvest at Windrose Farm in Paso Robles #SunsetSavor #SavorCC #travel #california #farmtotable #harvest

Farmer Bill gave us an educational tour of the farm explaining it’s history and also teaching us about the local crop.  We got to pick some of the apples and tomatillos from his farm and eat them as we were walking around.  It was a very cool experience eating the fresh food straight from the plant.

Celebrating Autumn’s Harvest at Windrose Farm in Paso Robles #SunsetSavor #SavorCC #travel #california #farmtotable #harvest

One of the coolest things I saw on the tour was the smoker.  Bill built this smoker specifically for his farm. He was roasting tomatoes, jalapeños, and garlic. It smelled so good!

We also had the most amazing Bloody Mary’s.  I really didn’t think I was a fan of Bloody Mary’s but this was like no other I had tasted. It was comprised of three ingredients – tomatoes, chipotle, and vodka.  It was so fresh and delicious.  I loved how the flavors swirled around in my mouth.  Monica from Re:Find brought the spirits. What is in the name? RE:FIND – FINDing a purpose for saignée, the prized free-run juice removed prior to fermentation to enhance wine quality, and REfining it into top-shelf spirits.

Lunch was beyond amazing!  Everything was so good and so fresh. I loved the polenta and my favorite was dessert.  The salted caramel was delicious. I seriously thought about licking the plate.  I did not do that, but it totally crossed my mind.

INTEGRITY MUSIC RELEASES

BEFORE AMEN: A WORSHIP COLLECTION OCT. 6

 

Recording Complements New Book From Bestselling Author & Pastor Max Lucado, Exploring The “Power Of A Simple Prayer”

 

Features All Sons & Daughters, Paul and Rita Baloche, Planetshakers, Soul Survivor, Darlene Zschech, Kari Jobe, Michael W. Smith, Kathryn Scott, John Mark McMillan, Brian Doerksen

 

Releasing internationally Oct. 6 through Integrity Music is Before Amen: A Worship Collection, the musical companion to the book from New York Times bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado, Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer (Thomas Nelson, October 2014). Written for everyone who wants to pray more, better and stronger, with more fire, faith and fervency, the album offers songs that that were chosen to complement the book, providing a musical backdrop for prayer and personal devotion.

The 13-track recording features inspirational, spoken word messages from Max Lucado and songs recorded by All Sons & DaughtersMichael W. Smith, Kari Jobe, John Mark McMillan, Brian Doerksen, Kathryn Scott and Soul Survivor, as well as brand new songs from worship leaders Paul and Rita Baloche, Planetshakers and Darlene Zschech.

Zschech’s song for the project, “My Highest Hope,” is a powerful declaration and reminder of the hope everyone has in Jesus.  Written by Zschech as she recovers from cancer, the chorus rings out:

Pray to the Risen One

My highest Hope

I trust You with my life

Lord over every fear

Your love is holding me

“Prayer is essential to every Christian’s walk with God,” says Zschech.  “You simply cannot have a relationship without communication and, as Max explains in Before Amen, that’s what prayer is… our simple, honest conversation with our Heavenly Father. I’m excited for the message behind the book Before Amen and honored to share a song for the Before Amen album.”

Paul and Rita Baloche’s new song, “Father You Are Good,” sung by Rita, features lyrics from Jesus’ most famous prayer that resonates on the lips of worshippers around the world:

Our Father in Heaven hallowed be Thy name

Thy kingdom come Thy will be done

In Heaven and Earth the same

Hallowed be Thy name Hallowed be Thy name

Before Amen: A Worship Collection also features Michael W. Smith’s “Lord Have Mercy,” McMillan’s “How He Loves,” All Sons & Daughters’ “All The Poor And Powerless” and Kari Jobe’s “Healer,” as well as the new song “Abba Father” from Planetshakers.

About Before Amen: The Power of a Simple Prayer:

Lucado cites in his new book that every week, more people will pray than will exercise, go to work, or have sex. But when it comes to praying, many don’t know where to begin.

Lucado believes that a vibrant prayer life does not mean your prayers are better or more eloquent than others. Quite the opposite. Lucado says humility combined with confidence provides a God-given prayer strength. Writes Lucado: “Since you matter to God, your prayers matter in heaven. You’re never without hope because you are never without prayer.”

Lucado sprinkles Before Amen with powerful stories of powerful prayers. He also writes about some of his own doubts about prayer, sharing how to overcome disappointment from unanswered prayers and be confident that God hears. Before Amen will allow readers to calm the chaos of life by embracing a prayer life that brings peace and rest.

About Max Lucado:
