Kid's Horse Halloween Costume (Size: Small 5-7)

Choosing the type of wood you want to cook with can be a puzzle if you do not
know what wood is available, and how each type of wood will effect the meat you
are cooking in terms of flavor. The paragraphs below list a brief description of some
of the best woods to use for cooking and when to use them. Being from Texas, of
course my favorite type of wood to use is mesquite, and basically I use it for
everything I smoke. Sometimes I add other woods such as apple, cherry, or pecan to
give different tastes to the meat, but most of the time I use pure mesquite.

Many people do not like mesquite because they believe the smoke adds too much
flavor to the meet. If it is not used correctly, this can possibly happen. Mesquite
needs to be aged, or completely dry before it is used. Using it before then might
add a bitter flavor to the meat you are cooking.

Anyway, enough about mesquite. There are many different types of wood available
for you to smoke with. Just remember one thing. If you are using a type of fruit
tree, then you will be okay. Here are a few examples of fruit trees and the flavors
their smoke produces.

Alder- This type of wood is found mostly in northern states. It is a very delicate
wood that gives a hint of sweetness to the meat. Alder is commonly used to smoke
fish, pork, poultry, and game birds.

Apple- The bark on a piece of apple wood is very thin so it gives off less smoke that
other types of wood. The smoke is fruity in flavor, and can be a great wood to use
for smoking poultry and pork. I use apple in addition to mesquite when I smoke

Cherry- This is a good wood to use for smoking beef, pork, and poultry. The smoke
is mild with a fruity flavor.

Hickory- Hickory is good for smoking pork, ham, and beef. It is probably the most
commonly used wood for smoking.

Mesquite- Mesquite is my favorite type of wood because it gives meat a good
smoke flavor, and a person can find it just about anywhere in Texas. It is important
to use only dried mesquite wood, because if the wood is too green, it can make the
meat taste bitter.

Oak- This type of wood can be used on just about anything if a heavy smoke flavor
is desired. Two types of oak are commonly used: red oak, and white oak. White oak
burns longer, and red oak is sweeter.

Pecan- Pecan is good to use in addition to mesquite when smoking ribs. I smoked a
brisket-using pecan only, and the end result was a 10-pound chunk of meat that
was too sweet to eat. I recommend using pecan moderately, mixed with another
wood such as mesquite or hickory.

These are just a few of the basic types of wood used for smoking. The types I have
described above are the kinds that I most commonly use, and the ones that I have
had the best luck with. The best way to find out which ones will work for you is trial
and error. Hickory is always a good bet, and it can be used in conjunction with
pecan, cherry, etc. to produce a mild, fruity flavor. Good Luck...

Costume Masks Alien Halloween Mask

Costume Masks Alien Halloween Mask mask illusions masterpiece series super deluxe oversized, high quality latex mask. one size (auldt)

As Christmas draws in, every day people's struggles have been highlighted.

Head of personal finance, David Kuo from money website Fool, believes that large numbers of people across the country that are simply living "from hand to mouth" will struggle to put any money aside in time for Christmas.

The continuing squeeze on finances being caused as a result of the credit crunch is behind such difficulty in the run-up to Christmas, Mr Kuo said, arguing that this increased expenditure on everyday household bills has stopped people from saving any of their hard earned cash for Christmas.

Due to peoples everyday outgoings rising disposable income remaining at the end of the month has fallen with the rising associated costs associated with energy, motoring, mortgage payments, as well as food price inflation. Therefore, it is increasingly difficult to plan ahead for events such as Christmas where expenditure increases, as there is less ability to put money to one side each month, Mr Kuo said.

To help plan finances over the Christmas period may be to take out a low rate personal loan, which could help you budget over a longer period of time.

And it is budgeting for the festive season that Mr Kuo suggests for those that are in a situation where they have not been putting money aside each month. "Although the right thing to do, is to put money to one side, it becomes very difficult to do so, as so many people are just living from hand to mouth at the moment. What people need to do between now and Christmas is budget in some ways," he said. It may be wise to try and find the money individuals will need to spend over the Christmas period from somewhere commented by Mr Kuo. By budgeting successfully, large amounts of debt spread over a number of different credit cards, for example, may be avoided.

Research from a number of building societies has shown that rather than take on these these tips for a successful Christmas, people have decided to cut back their level of spending over the festive season.

Research made by Birmingham Midshires found that some 78 per cent of Brits will be making steps to make this an affordable Christmas. Overall, budgets for Christmas have fallen by 102 pounds, with Britons planning on forking out just over 600 pounds this year on their celebrations. It has been noted that only 11% of people plan to spend on their plastic this season. which has dropped according to research - down from 41 per cent of people in 2006.

It seems, however, that it is not just Christmas that is a concern for individuals. Close Investments have researched from a large majority of people that appear to be concerned that the country will suffer from recession during the winter months.

Customer Review: Awesome!
This buy was worth it! I live in Hawaii and it was shipped very quickly! Excellent condition and service. I will definitely buy from buy costumes again! They have earned a faithful customer.
Customer Review: Life-like costume
Bought this costume for my 4 year-old nephew. He loves it and went immediately into character. The mask is close to his eyes though and bothered him. The costume cannot really be worn as pj's either because of the cape. The costume is easy to slip into and out of.

As Halloween approaches, many of us have some party or Halloween event to go to. Since it's only once a year, don't you want to make it exciting by choosing a great costume? If you are still searching for the right one, here are some creative ideas that have been growing in popularity.

  1. Sarah Palin - With the upcoming elections and the famous SNL skit with Tina Fey, Sarah Palin has become a fashion spectacle. From her hair to the famous glasses, more and more people have been seeking the Palin look. If you're looking to make that Sarah Palin transition, there are relatively cheap ways you can pull it off. Get yourself a light brown wig unless you already have similar hair color. The wig should run you about $30 to $45 and you should be able to style it to match one of her famous styles. No need to get the real hair as it will cost you a pretty penny and if this is just for a couple nights, why bother. Get yourself a pair of rimless glasses. Palin's are designed by Kazuo Kawasaki and distributed by a Los Angeles based Optical distributor, Italee Optics. They range anywhere between $200 to $400%2B. So unless you're looking to change your prescription glass frame, you can go with a cheap knock off. Finally, choose a business suit, pants or skirt and you're good to go.
  2. John McCain - Another popular costume due to the upcoming elections is John McCain. This is very simple to pull off since all you need is a suit and a McCain mask.
  3. Barack Obama - And another popular costume. Similar to the McCain costume, just wear a suit and the mask and you're set.
  4. Flavor Flav - As much as this guy annoys me, his costume has grown in popularity with teenagers and some adults. The clock, Viking helmet, and sun glasses come in one kit that's about $15. The outfit is sold separately for about $40 to $50.
  5. Batman, Joker - The Dark Knight costumes have grown in popularity with kids and adults. There are different versions of the costumes ranging from the simple costume to the more expensive, more defined and durable costumes. Take a look for yourselves and you'll be able to see the obvious differences. Overall, all versions of the costumes are good and if you're like me, you'll only be wearing this a couple of times this year so no point in spending a fortune.

Halloween is a time to get creative and have some fun! Go to for some fun tips on costumes, decorations, and more!

More and more people are ending up talking with divorce lawyers these days instead of seeking help to "save my marriage", but does it really have to be that way?

It's estimated that 52% of marriages fail for one reason or another. It could be for bad reasons like abuse, both mental or physical, infidelity or any number of other things but what is the underlying cause of divorce and what can a person do to get the help to "save my marriage"?

The reasons that a lot of couples split and seek a divorce can be summed up in a few simple words.

Selfishness, when one or both of the parties involved in a relationship thinks more about themselves than the other person. This is a really one sided attitude that will keep a relationship from being strong and loving.

If you are seeing things in your marriage going downhill, you need to ask yourself, and answer honestly, am I being selfish and only wanting whats best for me or am I doing everything I can to give my spouse the attention and love that he or she deserves without thinking about what I want?

Infidelity is the primary cause of bteakup's in a marriage and should be avoided at all costs if you truly want to save your marriage. Infidelity goes right along with selfishness where you or your spouse starts seeing another person because they get treated much better and the spark that you felt seemingly is rekindled.

This isn't love, it's more like infatuation and should be avoided as it just creates more problems for those that are serious about saving their marriage. There are two kinds of pain that we are exposed to in our lives, physical pain and emotional pain.

Physical pain from an accident hurts and can sometimes be excruciating but emotional pain or heartache is the type of pain that can cause you to feel hurt more than any physical pain could ever do. Although emotional pain is not physical, it can cause physical pain and it seems to be more painful than anything that you have ever experienced in your life.

It causes you to be unaware of your everyday life by taking your mind off of the things you do on a daily basis like eating regular meals, paying your bills, enjoying your time off and spending quality time with your friends and family. Drinking, or drowning your sorrows, is another problem with emotional pain and should be avoided at all costs.

Money problems can be another cause of breaking up a couples marriage. Financial problems lead to arguments over almost everything like not being able to pay the rent on time, not having enough food for the month or not being able to go out and enjoy life like you thought you'd be able to. Couples that really want to save their marriage should adopt a policy of "wants and needs" and work together to overcome their budget battles.

So if you are thinking in the right direction of "I want to save my marriage", there are a couple of things that you can do to help start down the road to having a great marriage, even if you think it's broken beyond repair. First, seek professional help. This doesn't mean talking to your family or friends and laying out your troubles to them. Go to a professional counselor that can get you back on the road to a loving relationship.

Second, If you are already separated, don't push the other person to get back together, that will just push them further away. Take things slowly, a little at a time and talk rationally. If things start to get heated, just back off and try to talk at another time. Treat the other person with care and respect even though you may be feeling slighted and hurt.

The key is to always give more than you take from your relationship. If both parties can do that then neither one of you will be yelling those dreadful words, "Help, Save My Marriage"!

Your marriage is the most important thing that you will ever be involved in so what do you do when you need help to save your marriage because it doesn't work out the way you had expected?Get the "help save my marriage" information you need on the web anytime, day or night.

Sexy Adult Halloween Costumes Lady Marie Antoinette of Versailles Dress Costume Theme Party Outfit

Don't lose your head in this sexy Marie Antoinette costume!

This Item Includes Skirt, Bodice, Knee-High Fishnets


Some Christians avoid mention of Halloween. Some celebrate it anyway. Now, one company may change the way Christians view Halloween forever.

They have come up with a way to use Halloween as an opportunity. They have a Memory Cross card to hand out to trick-or-treaters with your Halloween candy.

What is a Memory Cross card? It is a four panel interactive card that is designed in an origami style. It unfolds to display selected bible verses. They target kids ages 4-13 and use colorful graphics to hold the both children and adults attention.

The original intention of a Memory Cross cards was for creator, Pastor Andy Lambert, to use in his sermons to tell bible stories. However, now there is yet another use. Because people love to play with these cards and flip them around, they easily learn Gods Word. These are great evangelism tools. Even the shy kids will want to pass them out to their family and friends.

Now for Halloween, they have a product that is designed to fold like the originals, but presents the gospel message. It starts out and says FREE CANDYWhat could be better than that? and then goes on to share the gospel. It is colorful. It has a photo of candy corn on the front and makes kids want to take a look inside.

Soinstead of just handing out candy this year, Christians can bring the hope of the gospel into the homes of every child who knocks on their door!

Sheryl Frey is a Christian dedicated to helping others find great Christian products like Memory Cross to share their faith. She also organizes the Memory Cross Kids challenge. For more information please see
