20090829 – Evan’s parents’ cabin – (by Tabbitha) – Carolyn – vaping with my e-cigarette – 3885336321_05eb876d7f_b
Clint got an e-cigarette that he brought to the cabin. Before the day ended, it was broken and unusable. Return shipping was half the product’s cost, and the vendor — who warranted these things to not break — insists on paying shipping both ways. DO NOT BUY FROM E-CIGARETTE-MART.COM! Or Hong Kong in general!
While it lasted, the e-cigarette was amazing. I mixed a custom blend of e-juice (liquid tobacco) and cotton candy flavor. I didn’t have a blank cartridge, so I dropped the juice on a cartridge that already had tobacco-flavored juice. So I had a weird mix of tobacco and cotton candy flavor. Vaped a good 100 tokes before I really felt it, at which point I could easily feel twice the nicotine in my head that I get from smoking a cigarette. Apparently the smoke itself is limiting, and removing the smoking process makes it much easier to do more nicotine at the same time. Not to mention that it’s much less harmful in a vaporized state.

Christening Tips For Parents
Planning for your child’s christening may seem like a lot of hard work, but given the nature of the celebration—an initiation into the Christian faith—the extra effort is certainly worth it. In preparation for the christening there will be several details that need to be handled, and with all the excitement of having a new baby in the house, sometimes these details can be overlooked. To help ensure everything goes off without a hitch, here we have covered a few christening tips that are sure to help you out.
Not all christenings are performed in the same way, but these ceremonies all signify roughly the same thing across all Christian denominations and faiths: a rebirth into the Christian family and the Christian way of life. Christenings are a form of baptism in which the child, accompanied by his parents and godparents, gather officially with a church leader.
The child is anointed—usually with water—and prayers are read and recited welcoming the new child to the Church and all it signifies.
Among the many decisions you will have to make in anticipation of your child’s christening, perhaps the most important one is where the ceremony will be held. For many Christians, the preferred location for a christening is the church where the family attends services, but this is not the only option available. Many families choose to be a little more creative with the location, opting for ceremonies at home or at another locale that holds a special significance to the family.
In addition to reserving the location where the christening will be held, there are several other details that need attending to. Among these is choosing your child’s Godparents.
Godparents are a very important part of a Christian child’s life and should be chosen with great care. Also, choosing your child’s attire. When choosing your child’s attire, consider both the location where the christening will be held along with the time of the year. Naturally, what your child wears to the christening is of no great importance, but you want to ensure that the infant is comfortable.
A christening is a very special ceremony and should be planned for accordingly. It signifies not only the blessedness of a new child in your family, but in the Christian family as well. When planning for your child’s christening, follow the tips outlined above and the day will be enjoyed by all.
