A Home Theatre, anyone?

The importance of home theater design cannot be understated if you want to enjoy years of quality viewing.

Design of a home theater room is one thing but have you considered getting the best in picture and sound quality from your television and sound system.

Yes, you can design and organize your home theater room yourself and you will save big bucks in the final outcome but if you don't have any experience with setting up a home theater room, then you could be short-changing yourself as far as getting the best out of your system is concerned.

The Secret To Home Theater Design

Home theater design is about where to place the television and sound system in relation to where you will be sitting. It has to do with TV viewing distance and maximizing your viewing satisfaction; it has to do with sound acoustics and room lighting and it most certainly has to do with the quality of your picture and sound.

Without good quality picture and sound you'll end up spending most of your time rubbing your eyes and ears due to sunburned vision and scratchy and irritating sound quality.

What's the answer?

Home Theater Calibration

Well, why don't you budget for home theater calibration before you commence your project. In other words, get a professional in to calibrate your television and sound before opening night.

You've budgeted to spend a good deal of money on your home theater system so why not use it to the best of it's ability.

A professional calibration service will not only ensure your TV is set to give you the best possible picture but will make sure it blends in with your environment as well as saving you money by lowering energy consumption and prolonging the life span of your unit.

What's the point of spending several thousand dollars on home theater design and equipment when all it's going to achieve is irritate you through poor performance. Home theater calibration is real and worth considering.

Parents - Teen Conversation: From a survey

Is the glass half full or half empty? About six out of ten teens (67% of girls and 62% of guys) find it easy to talk to their parents about relationships. Still, about one in four teens (27% of guys and 24% of girls) say it’s difficult to talk to their parents about relationship issues.

Teens have lots of reasons why they don’t talk with their parents about love, sex, and relationships, including fear of their parent’s reaction,worry that their parents will think they are having sex, embarrassment, not knowing how to bring the subject up, and the belief that parents won’t understand. Parents want to talk to their children about these topics but freely admit they often don’t know what to say or when to start the conversation.

Fast Fact: We know from previous surveys that there is a conversation disconnect between parents and teens. Teens say that parents are having helpful conversations with them about sex and related issues but there is disagreement about just how often. For example—89% of adults said that they’ve had a helpful conversation about sex, love, and relationships with their teens but only 71% of teens agree, according to a previous survey.

Parent Tip: Remember to talk to your kids honestly about love, sex,and relationships. Just because they seem young doesn’t mean that they can’t fall in love or wonder about sex.

Teen Tip: Help your parents out—be patient when they broach tough topics such as dating and relationships, and especially sex. It can be awkward for them too!


“ A serious relationship is just deeply caring about the person you are with no matter what they want. Being in love has a huge part in that because if you
love someone you wouldn’t push them into anything they didn’t want to do. Whatever it is GOD is watching you..so take a good care of the trust and your beliefs in GOD”
