With just another year just around the corner, this is the time that we all sit back and think: What are my New Year’s Resolutions for 2012 going to be? It’s a new year, a chance to start a fresh.
Hello all, I trust you had a wonderful time this Christmas Season, we only have one day left of 2011. I thought I would would place a quick post to finish off the year about gifts and money.
As we get older it becomes less important on material items as gifts, and see the gift of money or gift vouchers as the best solution, not just because it is the easiest way out because you simply can’t think of anything to buy that someone who probably has everything you can think of anyway, it is a great way to allow that person buy what they want with the money. Whether it is a cash gift, iTunes Gift Card, Store Credit Voucher, or a Book Token, it allows us to get the things in life we’ve always want or need.
More and more people are turning to the possibility of riding a motorcycle as fuel and insurance prices continue to rise. It is not only cheaper in terms of fuel economy, it is also cheaper to maintain than their four wheel cousins.
aiWeb 2.0 has only been going for a very short time. It feels a lot longer, I have so much more to write about, I only hope it is of interest to all of you out there. What I can’t believe is that 2011 is nearly over, but I have so much to look forward in the coming months.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have been very kind as to follow this blog and hope you will follow me into 2012.
When I was a child I used to attend Sunday school and Church and feel extremely bad that I did not continue to attend Church into adulthood. I have never really considered myself to be a religious person. However, I do remember one song/prayer that I always used to sing both at Church and throughout School, and have always had a soft spot for it, and that is the ‘Lords Prayer’ that is sung around the world.
I felt it was only fitting that on this day as we spend time with our family and friends and give and receive gifts that I would put a video of Cliff Richards version of the ‘Lords Prayer’, for you all to enjoy.
Song: Millennium Prayer
Artist: Cliff Richard
Let us remember those of us less fortunate than ourselves and let us give thanks to what we have been blessed with.
All the best for 2012.
Some other awesome holiday based videos:
Yep, I have been spending my money… again! – This time I have been buying a couple of items in preparation of my vacation to Egypt.
Welcome to the sequel to Holiday Gift Wish List (1). I have posted a lot since that initial post on December 7th, 2011, and now as we get ever closer to the big day, I thought it was only fitting to post about some other things I would like to receive as gifts if someone was so kind as to give them to me.
The gifts on this wishlist are somewhat more extravagant and require rather a large purse-string to warrant purchasing these.
As you will continue to read this blog, you will quickly learn that I love my gadgets, and today’s post is no exception. Here is a collection of some awesome gadgets and concepts I have found around the Internet. You could say this is another wishlist, but despite not having the prices for some of the items on the list, the others come to approximate total of $46,500.00, so it is unlikely. Hope you enjoy. Would love to hear your thoughts on this list and any other gadgets and concepts you have discovered.

Like all of you I am looking forward to spending time with family and friends over the holidays… only 4-days to go. I have not had a chance to jet off abroad for sometime, and with the cold weather upon us and the ever increasing possibility of some snow, I felt I needed to find somewhere nice and warm to relax.
I have been to several places when I was a child, France, Spain, Channel Islands. But some places as an adult, New York, San Francisco, Florida, and Las Vegas for instance are all safe places or some would say the lazy holidays, everyone speaks English (of sorts – the American’s will argue that they speak American not English – but that is a whole different argument or post).
I made a promise to myself last New Years (2011), that I would make a concerned effort to learn a new skill and visit a country around the world that I had never been to. This time I chose Egypt. It is a place I have always wanted to see, and being a photographer and now a qualified diver (that’s the new skill I was on about), it is one of the best places around the world to try out my diving/snorkeling and bring back some great photographs (I only hope they are anything like these I have sourced from the Internet).
My vacation is not until February 2012, but I am already counting down the days. I will be visiting the resort of Sharm el Sheikh.
The wonderful resort of Sharm el Sheikh lies right on the coast of the Sinai Peninsula, between Mount Sinai and the Red Sea, in Egypt. At the entrance of the Gulf of Aqaba and looking out across to Tiran Island, Sharm el Sheikh is the sun-worshipping holiday makers paradise.
From 20° in December and January through to 35° in July and August, Sharm el Sheikh really is the all year round holiday resort, and with the sea temperature averaging 20° in January to a glorious 26° from July to September it is no wonder that holiday makers return year after year. The coastline is a mixture of lovely sandy beaches and jetties for easy access to the crystal clear sea.
I plan to stay at the Sol Sharm Resort Hotel, which by what I have read so far of other peoples experiences seems to be a really great hotel. I managed to get a really good deal on flights and hotel. This gives me the opportunity to experience Egypt with a couple of activities whilst I am there. My research has unearthed a company called Charm of Sharm, that provides several activities at affordable prices. I only hope they are still operating when I get there, I haven’t been able to find discernible proof that they are. If you can give me an indication that they are, I would be grateful for your comments.
If they are still running, I will be looking into doing the Quad-Biking Tour into the Desert for a Sunset, and their Day Trip to Cairo to visit the Pyramids (can’t go to Egypt and not see the Pyramids, now can I).
I will be posting my experience and photographs on this blog when I return, so keep an eye out for that.
