I use & find simple to use the Spots speed dial interace. It works especially well in the Chrome browser.

The boundaries between life are becoming less & less distinct
 
Stunning Walking Orchid Mantis

Hymenopus coronatus, also called H. bicornis, is a mantis from the rain forests of southeast Asia. It is known by various common names including walking flower mantis and (pink) orchid mantis. It is one of several species known as flower mantises from their resemblance and behaviour.

This species is characterized by brilliant coloring and a structure finely adapted for camouflage, mimicking parts of the orchid flower. The four walking legs resemble flower petals, the toothed front pair being used as in other mantises for grasping prey.

The Walking Flower Mantis shows some of the most pronounced sexual dimorphism of any species of mantis; males can be less than half the size of females.

The mantis can change its colour between pink and brown, according to the colour of the background.

If you want to know about a revolutionary new model in assisted care living, read about this.

"The Household Model" gives autonomy & control over life decisions (when to get up, when to eat, what to eat, who you live with) back to residents.

Institutional schedules take a back seat to each resident's desires, needs & wishes and people are given their lives, self-respect & identities back.

Read about it, here.

Really delicious! I tried their best seller (all the greens+mint+ginger+lemon). It was refreshing and pleasing, with a perfect lemon zing! The almond milk was delicious. Had it, driving to work. Lightly sweetened with maple syrup. Was a great breakfast! Perfectly satisfield my hunger! Also delicious! Park right in front, except during rush hour, 6a-9a. and 4p-6p.

I am downgrading this nail salon because they do not pass along credit card tips to their manicurists. After the May 7, 2015 expose - The Price of Nails - by The New York Times, one wonders how this owner is operating. He charges market rates. He closely monitors the work flow of his business and keeps at least 10 manicurists busy. The fact that he does not honor credit card tipping in this high-volume business makes one wonder. As a new client, I received decent service for a spur-of-the-moment manicure and pedicure on a very busy Friday, but I will not go back after this discovery about payment of tips.

I discovered Lee's through a local dealer. He's the "in-the-know go-to". For an emergency job that I needed, he charged 60% less than what others were quoting. The job was done in hours. He also referred me to Moe's towing, who responded quickly and charged only $50 to move my car from Downtown out to Lee's. Honest, quick, bright. Thank you, Lee's!

Kateri gave me a superior cut today. It is very difficult to cut short hair, but she did it quickly - tapering and texturing, perfectly! I was extremely pleased!

You don't have to be in New York or LA to get the best of boutique fitness centers. The Fitness Loft offers everything from steady-state aerobic to HIIT workouts. Machines. Free weights. Classes. Open gym floor. Two large group studios. Licensed professional trainers. A nutritionist. ALCHEMY The ground floor of The Fitness Loft hosts Alchemy, a juice bar and cafe. Owner Alexis is a Registered Dietician who specializes in delicious healthy eats, many of which are vegetarian (acai bowls; quinoa, kale, almond, brussel sprout salads; sandwiches; fresh smoothies), as well as fresh, cold-pressed juices and an expresso bar. THE ENVIRONMENT The first thing you notice when you walk upstairs to the first floor of The Loft are the 2-story ceiling and walls of floor-to-celing windows. The light and expanse give you an automatic psychological lift. The air is fresh. Machines have been placed with sufficient distance, so that you never feel right on top of the person who may be running, cycling, or skiing next to you. There are two HUGE third-floor studios, well stocked (weights, balls, equipment) for fitness classes and RPM. Lockers are programmable. Showers are private and spacious. Bathrooms, locker rooms, showers, the workout floor are spotlessly clean. THE EQUIPMENT The owners - The Jeffs May (Jr and Sr) - have made a huge investment in Technogym's state-of-the-art equpment. Aerobic machines can be found at the windows, with a view, and in more private locations on the third floor. The Wellness System technology is compatible with FitBit, MapMyFitness and FitnessPal. Aerobic equipment is completely programmable and cloud based, allowing you to plug into your own auditory and visual worlds. Each member can purchase a cloud-based fitness fob, which automatically tracks your goals and the performance of each session, for those who are seriously training or those who simply don't want to maintain written records. THE FITNESS CULTURE The Mays have invested (with a long-term view) in the quality and number of on-site trainers. Individual expertise ranges from working with those who are true athletes-in-training to lower-intensity fitness clients. Each new member is offered a professional baseline fitness assessment, which includes aerobic and flexibility capacity, basic lipid bloodwork . All of this can be uploaded to the fob, along with your trainer-recommended program. THE SOCIAL CULTURE Members are very polite and stick pretty much to themselves. Present are a range from 'young, fit and beautiful' to 'retired, not-so-fit, but dedicated to longevity and a healthy future.' Those who work up the sweat of significant exertion always wipe down their equipment with disinfectant towlets from numerous dispensers throughout the gym. On-site trainers are always training new members. Trainers who are not working with a client are friendly and make themselves available to help or answer questions. CLASSES Cycling. RPM. Pilates. Yoga. PiYo. Body pump. Boot camp. Synergy. Insanity. Beginning weight training. Running club. You get the idea: A wide range, with an appropriate level and intensity for everyone. ACCESSIBILITY The Fitness Loft, located on the second and third floors, is accessible by elevator and stairs.
