Global Celebrity

There are many ways that celebrities have branched out to the world wide market, but one of the most common is as brand ambassadors London. Huge stars like Brad Pitt, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nicholas Cage and Christina Aguilera have stared in foreign commercials that never aired in the United States but are available on YouTube. Some of these celebrity commercials are pretty hilarious to people in the United States and really show the difference in what appeals to Americans compared to other countries. The most recognizable commercial is the one that Arnold Schwarzenegger did for a Japanese energy drink called “Vfuyy”. After doing some research, I found that Arnold has done a lot of commercials for different companies based is Asia. They are pretty entertaining but would not translate well in the American market.

New City

My husband got a new job, so we recently moved to a new city. I did not want to move, but because I am married, I have to go wherever my husband goes. Even though I was dreading the move, things actually got better for me after I moved to the new city. My children love the new school they are at and are doing well. I have recently started a new job as a London exhibition staff member. Additionally, my husband loves his new job.

Change can potentially be a good thing and moving to this new city has definitely taught me that. I think the reason that I dreaded moving was because I had gotten comfortable in the place that I was at. Now, I realize that in life, we have to step outside of our comfort zone.

Driveway Appearance And Water Issues Solved

There are a few highlights in my life that I always think of fondly: my marriage, birth of my child, and the day I discovered permeable paving. Perhaps a slight exaggeration, but our problems were finally solved when we discovered this new revolutionary fix for our water issues.

The driveway would always have drainage problems every time we had a substantial rain. Needless to say, the constant water pooling was not only a nuisance, but began to take a toll on the integrity of material. We talked to our contractor who suggested this new paving technique, had it installed, and have been happy homeowners ever since. Not only did it solve the drainage problem, but we chose a type of paver installation that allowed the planting of tiny ornamental groundcover to grow between the pavers. It’s resulting appearance is that of an English garden instead of a driveway!

The Couple

A newlywed couple just purchased their first new home. However, the home needed lots of repairs inside and out. They had no idea what they were going to do to make the house look more presentable. It dampened their sprits to see all of the surrounding neighbors have wonderful and well maintained homes. The husband decided that he should maintain the yard and the wife can make the decisions of how she wanted the home to look. The woman was excited to know that she could make all the decisions on what the inside of the home looked like. The husband was happy because he knew that porous paving was a good way to restore some of the pavement in the yard. They decided to turn it into a competition to see who could get through redesigning first.
