How to track daughter’s phone without her knowing

1 day 2 hours ago


Reading newspapers is all it takes for parents to get severely concerned about the safety of their daughters. But let us face it, technology does not help either. Parents have been reluctant when it comes to giving their daughters cell phones and often wish to trace her cell phone. This tends to put parents in negative light, however, very often; it is not an urge to control that drives parents but a concern for the safety of their child. And let’s face it; technology does not make the lives of parents any easier.

It is this fear of online predators that causes anxiety amongst parents; however, if the child is informed, it might lead to a disturbed environment at home.

It is for this reason that parents wish to keep things silent as they spy on their daughters.

Most homeowners are constantly looking for novelty ways to improve each and every room in the house. And why wouldn’t they? After all, investing in your home is something that will benefit you in the long run.

Remodeling this part of the house sounds like a difficult and expensive project to take up.

Furthermore, there are also solutions that you can apply which will make your water consumption more reasonable overall, thus lowering costs on your monthly bills.

Face Plants: 10 Lifeless Abandoned Garden Centers

1 day 6 hours ago
[ By Steve in Abandoned Places & Architecture. ]

Spring has sprung – officially, at least – as green-thumbed gardeners shop for seeds, shrubs and soil… but not at these abandoned garden centers.

Speaking of green thumbs, the Green Thumb garden center in Sequim, WA appeared to have it all: a landscaped back lot, a shaded gazebo, a sign that advertised their acceptance of VISA and Master Charge cards… wait, Master “Charge”??

10 Designer’s Tips on Decorating Rental Homes

1 day 6 hours ago

When you buy a property, you can be confident when you move in it that you’ll be staying put for a good long while. If you’re renting your home, however, you probably don’t know how long you’ll be staying so you’ll need to think more carefully about how you decorate.


While you want to live in an attractive and aesthetically pleasing environment, you probably don’t want to invest too much money on decorating a home in which you’ll only be living on a temporary basis. Where do you begin? Here are 10 top tips to help you get started on decorating your rental home.

  1. Decide To Decorate

The very first tip is not to give in to the temptation to leave the décor of your rental home as it is. Personalising your space is vital. Even if you’ll only be staying for a few months, you should still put your mark on your space in small ways.

  1. Versatility Is Key

Small Sanctuary – Turning a Tiny Yard Into a Petit Paradise

1 day 7 hours ago

The living room gets a lot of love. And a weekend doesn’t go by when you aren’t adding to or tweaking how your bedroom looks. But the yard? The yard is overlooked and isn’t a place that reflects too much creativity and personality.. but with a few small changes and design features your tiny yard could become a petit paradise.

Light the way

In any space, having the right light will instantly set the tone of the room. Bad lighting also has the power to turn people off a space so this is the right place to start. There are no flood lights or fluorescents in paradise so opt for some tasteful garden lights to set the mood, and get you in a state of relaxation fast.

Candles are always a nice touch in any outdoor setting, and if there is solampsmeone who is always getting bitten by mosquitoes (we all have that friend) surprise them with a citronella scent so you can enjoy the space at any hour of the day.

Comfort first

St. Ovídio Chapel By Álvaro Siza Through The Lens Of Fernando Guerra

1 day 9 hours ago

A pure volume, slightly lit, sits in the middle of a garden. It is a private chapel in Quinta de St. Ovídio in Lousada, built between 1989 and 2001 and designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira. The project starts from a path, where you can see the prismatic white volume from afar. As you pass through the building and some steps, you arrive at the entrance square. Here you will notice that Siza differentiated the main facade, in stone, from the other three, in white painted concrete, giving it importance.

At the entrance, next to the stone gable, a linear concrete bench is laid out perpendicularly.

Ten Tips For Making An Outdoor Area To Be Proud Of

1 day 9 hours ago

“Have you seen the Johnsons’ back yard? I wouldn’t give you five bucks for the house, but what’s outside is out of this world.”

There is more to a property than the bricks and mortar. That’s why it’s referred to as a property, not just a house.

If you are lucky enough to have an outdoor area to call your own, making it look good can make you look good. And it can add to the value if you decide to sell it.


But never mind the ulterior motives: it’s yours, you live there and the outdoors part can give you a lot of pleasure.

It all depends on what you’ve got to work with, of course. For the purposes of this article I’m going to assume you’ve got a medium to smallish area.

Many such yards suffer from neglect because they’re not big enough to be considered worthwhile. So what you have is a small patch of mud with the garbage bin in one corner and odd bits of wood and plastic pipes dumped there just to get them out of the house. There might be an old washing machine and a pile of broken bricks and other debris.

It’s a sad sight – and it doesn’t have to be that way.

Outdoor Area

Here are ten ways to make your outdoor area something to be proud of.

Collages of Iconic Architecture Transformed Into Everyday Objects

1 day 15 hours ago
© Filipe Vasconcelos © Filipe Vasconcelos

It's not uncommon to happen upon works of architecture that resemble everyday objects. Sou Fujimoto even created an entire exhibition of "architecture" made of ashtrays, potato chips and matchboxes. Cheese graters, beehives and bottle openers appear to have been enlarged and given an architectural program (given the resemblance to their smaller counterparts). 

Architect Filipe Vasconcelos goes beyond obvious alikeness and explores, through digital collage, the similarity between architectures and objects. He creates scenes in which the works are reimagined in displaced situations, with nothing to do with original context or use.
