Online Art Gallery Specials

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Eminent Advertising for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have to admit that personally I'm not well-introduced to art that much when I was young. I started learning to appreciate it when my fiancé took me once to the museum of arts in D.C. last year. I thought it was going to be a boring tour but I was wrong. As he begun to show me how those unique hand strokes and patterns goes by those well-known artists. It was pretty impressive! Thereafter that tour, I kind of know my partner 'better' and of course it would be easier to get him something for the upcoming special occasions. It definitely gives me an idea on what he really likes and the things that can make him a happy camper. There's one thing that he might not know that I pay attention to every details. As much as my fiancé loves art, then he is going to get a surprise painting from Royo for his birthday in April. I have been dredging online just to get great deals like Fine Art Gallery has to offer. For over two months of searching online for specials, I'm glad to finally found a great online art gallery that is selling fine art at reasonable dealer prices. I am lucky that this company also offers a full service art gallery in the San Francisco Bay area committed to the philosophy of offering dealer prices to the public. They specialize in Contemporary, Traditional and Commercial art by such artists as Pino, Vladimir Kush, and Disney Fine Art.

Identifying Song: Music Title Finder.

Don't you hate it when you heard a very familiar song and you just couldn't figured out its title? It happens to me all the time and when I tried to Google it, it gave me a non-matching song. Well, if you have a smart phones then life could be a bit easier than it was. I finally figured it out that there's an app for almost everything including the 'Music Title Finder' for a certain song. In the app store search for 'MusicID' then download it for free. Once you have successfully downloaded it, just tap the "identify song" button while you set your phone to listen its lyrics. Then MusicID will tell you what exactly the title of the song that is playing right on the spot.

NO Smoking in the Parks!

If I had the chance to write a note to the Health Department officials, I would definitely ask them to urged the banning of smokers inside those public parks. If health wise smoking is dangerous for the adults, how much more to those innocent childrens with fragile lungs? It happened to us several times, I took my child to a public park nearby and sadly we cannot stay any longer after smelling and inhaling those disgustingly nasty smokes. Smokers are usually smoking in the face of their kids without even thinking how it could affect their kids' lungs. I felt bad to those parents who are trying to kill their kids by burning their lungs early. I hope someday, someone will take charge of this issue.

How to Prevent Identity Theft?

I have seen so many people that keeps posting their own personal/private identity via Facebook. Yes, I got it "bragging" of something they have accomplished in life, etc. But do we really need to take a picture of it, with the complete details and post on public sites? In fact, only those thieves that cares about those infos you have posted. Unfortunately, they are unaware of the risks that they are in. Documents that shows your identity or your child should not be posted on the internet publicly. Passports, licenses or ID's, green cards, phone numbers and home addresses should be fully protected at all times. I guess, they will learn somehow once they will get unexpected bills or someone's opening credit cards using their identifications that they have been sharing online. Folks, protecting valuable life informations is your own responsibility.
