Forever Friends

1 Corinthians 15:53-55 (NLT) For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,   this Scripture will be fulfilled:  “Death is swallowed up in victory.   O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” I spent last evening in a youth service with grieving young people. The young girl killed in a horrible tragedy had touched many and her kindness rippled through the crowd as many shared of her character even at the tender age of 16. Their sobs racked my heart. Why God? The grief counselors from the local high school were there – all believers – they talked with some, embraced others tightly and prayed with those who requested it. I was moved by the Presence of God in the midst of such sorrow and heartache. Hugging her mother, I prayed peace and strength walking through this week into her new normal. I could

The Operational Considerations: How to Run Your Catering Business

The Financial Considerations: How Much Money You Need to Start a Catering Business

Your financial capability will determine the kind of catering business you are able to put up and maintain in the long run. When checking out your finances for the business, you have to consider the capital and startup costs as well as the required taxes. Startup Capital and Cost The cost of starting a catering business depends on how large you want to start. Would you like to be home based at first as a self-operated caterer or go for contract catering even at the onset? Either way, the initial costs include the fees for licensing, insurances, and promotions. The capital needed also depends on your preferred corporate structure. Of course, if it is sole proprietorship, less or small capital is needed. On the other hand, if you will register as a corporation, then more capital investment is required. Tax Obligation The amount of tax payable depends on the business organization, whether sole proprietorship or corporation. Nonetheless, it is best to get a certified accountant to ha

The Booming Catering Industry: Facts and Statistics

The Legalities of Putting Up A Catering Business: Complying With All Legal Requirements

Choosing the Type of Business Structure As you start offering catering services, you may notice your income increase overtime, especially when you cater to corporate functions. Of course, this is good news to your business, but all your efforts will be for nothing when the governing authority flags you for operating a non-registered business. So it is very important to decide the type of business structure and then proceeding with the registration. For example, in the US, the IRS will red flag a caterer earning over $600 without being incorporated. The chosen business structure will be dependent on how you want your business to be taxed and what liabilities you can risk. A  sole proprietorship company entails you, as the owner, to be held accountable to whatever unfortunate incidents in your operation. This is riskier compared to  limited liability  caterers and  corporations . Remember that you will be serving food to the public so it would be best to go for a business organizatio

Zintara and the Stones Of Alu Cemah

The debut novel from brothers Michel and Dominic Bohbot is a dynamic fantasy tale inspired by the love of speculative fiction instilled in them by their father. This is seen not only in the dedication of ZINTARA AND THE STONES OF ALU CEMAH but also throughout the narrative. We are taken to another world, one that contains mythical and imaginary creatures alongside human characters. There is a synopsis of many of the characters at the start of the novel and I admit I had to turn to it several times during the reading as there are a lot of names and relationships for the reader to juggle. The Prologue finds a young Zintara, human in all features aside from the great black wings that thrust out from her back, being sent away by her mother as her family and their empire falls in a violent manner. The antagonist of this tale, Korban --- human warrior and sorcerer --- is on a quest for the three Stones of Alu Cemah which will purportedly bring him the ability to rule over all. Zintara is

Getting a Fine Instrument Insured: Some Helpful Tips

Fine instruments are beautiful works of craftsmanship, and very vulnerable to come what may. Being careful means obtaining an insurance policy. There are horror stories about  fine stringed instruments  getting damaged. You’ve heard them. Despite meticulous care and love a musician puts into his or her instrument, it can be destroyed in an instant.   Wunderkind David Garrett was age 26 in 2008 when it happened. After the end of a concern at London’s Barbican he tripped on a wet outdoor staircase, fell – and landed on his 1772 Giovanni Guadagnini violin. It was shortly after he finished paying off the £ 1.2 million loan to purchase it. The accident, even though the violin was in its case, was catastrophic for the instrument. Garrett was uninjured.   “I felt as if I’d lost a friend,” the virtuoso told a writer for The Guardian newspaper. “The body was cracked all over. I must have sat there for 10 or 15 minutes. I didn’t shout or cry. I just stared. I was in shock. So

How to Clean Your Stringed Instrument at Home

Minor maintenance of violins, violas and cellos can and should be done by the player. Know what you’re doing – including when to call a professional. All stringed instruments ­– violins, cellos and violas – are in certain respects alive. The strings, the various components (neck, pegbox, pegs, strings, bow and bow strings, the body and finish, even inside the instrument) have components that are subject to dirt, dust, your perspiration, and excess rosin. Without proper maintenance those components can suffer ­– and so too might your playing.   Some maintenance and repairs are best done by your preferred local  violin shop  (your violin maker, who often is the violin repairer). But on a regular basis the violinist, cellist, bassist, etc. should maintain certain habits and routines to minimize damage and maximize the life and performance of his or her instrument.   This is equally true of higher-end,  fine stringed instruments  as well as student and intermediate mode
