What Is Black Gold?

First hearing the term “black gold” made me so curious. I imagined so many definitions and topics of what is black gold. Is it a new drink, an oil, a type of jewelry, a song or a movie? It inspired me to dig deep and uncover what exactly is black gold. Well I guess it depends who you ask. I asked some friends and they all have their own ideas of what is black gold. I think for me the best answer is it’s the result of successful composting. I wrote about this in an article awhile back that you can read here. I’ve always planned on researching more about this because I do find it interesting.

If you want to watch a film about composting read below!

10 Ways To Walk At Home

I can think of so many ways to walk at home but I’m going to focus on just 10 ways to walk at home. Walking at home leads to a healthy lifestyle that helps maintain good health and prevent disease.  With the gym limitations in some areas, it’s important to find ways to walk at home.  In my opinion, to walk from home is the most convenient and safest for me. I’ve adjusted my home to fit my needs for exercise by purchasing an elliptical machine and setting up a workout area in my home. The whole family is always encouraged to join in the routine to walk at home either walking the dogs or in the new workout area.

Benefits Of The Elliptical Machines – Review of the Schwinn A40

Finding the perfect home workout can be fun and benefits of the elliptical machines are plentiful!!  Since sometimes outside exercise isn’t ideal I’ve decided to invest in an elliptical machine. This could also be helpful for those that can’t run or absolutely don’t like running. Since I have never owned an exercise machine and I’m relatively new to using one I wanted something at a good price point that was also available to ship immediately. There were many options but not all of them were available to ship. At home exercise is a demanding option right now and many were sold out.  I will outline those benefits and provide a review on the Schwinn A40 which is the one that I chose.
