In the auto industry, a few select brands tend to be popular for long periods of time. This is partly because they deliver a good product and partly because people like a sense of familiarity.

How to Choose a Bird House
This has been a long, cold winter. I am so ready for spring and filling up the bird feeders. I love watching the birds outside my kitchen window every day and enjoy their singing every morning when I wake up. Early spring is the best time to start thinking about installing new bird houses. You’ll also want to check any bird houses that you already have set out to see if they need any repairs. Did you know that each kind of bird can require a different bird house? I only have a few different kinds but would love to start adding more. Here are some tips on how to choose a bird house.
1. What kind of birds do you want to attract? Some common types of birds are wrens, bluebirds, chickadees, titmice, tree swallows, purple martins, wood ducks, screech-owls, american robins and woodpeckers. Woodpeckers can be pesky little burgers. I have to admit though, I love listening to them peck on a tree or some type of wood. They are so much fun to watch too. If they’re pecking on the wood on your house, it’s probably not as much fun! You can l earn more about each bird species at National Wildlife. [Read More...]

Tips for Increasing Your Video Rewards
Did you decide that you want to earn rewards for watching videos, but are you just not getting as many rewards as you hoped? Are you spending time watching the videos and just feeling like you are not being rewarded adequately for that time? The problem may not be with the system that you’re using, whether it’s on Swagbucks or a similar site, but with the way that you are approaching it. You could be making some crucial mistakes that are holding you back and making it impossible for you to earn all of the rewards that you want. These tips can help you increase the totals.
1. Choose the shortest videos.
When given a choice, you always want to choose the shortest videos that you can find, especially if the rewards are the same. This could allow you to watch four or five in the timespan that you typically would have only watched two or three, massively increasing your production levels. If the videos come with different amounts of rewards – if the longer ones offer more rewards points, for instance – you will have to look at all of your options to see which ones are the best. Often, though, you get a set amount of points per video, regardless of length, so you definitely want to pick the short ones.
