You Should Do These 11 Things Before You Leave For Vacation

It is one of those things we look forward to in a year - going on a nice, relaxing vacation. But before you close the door of your home behind you, there are some steps you might want to take before you leave. To ensure your credit card works abroad, you need to alert your credit card company. But if it’s on the eve of your departure, don’t submit an online form, just call instead. Also, make sure you have enough available credit. Don’t forget about your call plan either, especially if you are leaving for another country. Call your service provider to set up the best plan for you to make calls, send texts and access the Internet from your smartphone. If you have a home security system, alert the operator or your local police, especially if you will be gone for two weeks or more. If you ask, they might even do extra runs by your house just in case. This should come as a no-brainer, but make sure to double check all your reservations for the flight, the accommodation, any car rentals, restaurant or attraction you might plan on visiting. No one wants a sour surprise on their trip. If you have access to a printer, it might not be a bad idea to have everything printed out, just to be safe. Make sure your bills are all paid for before you leave, in case your trip falls on the date when they are due. Be sure your weather will be as good as you want it. If not, this will help you pack better, bring warmer or looser clothes. Also, check the weather for your home city as well, in case the temperature drops significantly. When you are done with the big stuff, take care of a few smaller details, like getting rid of the perishables in your kitchen, leave an emergency contact with a friend or family member, remove all the unnecessary stuff from your wallet and by all means, bring home any outdoor furniture inside, where it is nice and safe. All you are left to do is have a very nice time on your trip!

Here's How The Windy City Turns Its River Green For St. Patrick's Day1m01s

Here's How The Windy City Turns Its River Green For St. Patrick's Day

Nothing says Happy St. Patrick’s Day like people all dressed in green! The people of Chicago love it the most, for obvious reasons, so much so that they even dye their river in the familiar hue! But how exactly do they do it? Let’s start with a bit of history. The dying of the river water tradition started somewhere in 1962, although its origins go even further back. A former Mayor of Chicago, Mr. Richard J. Daley was on a mission to make the riverfront part of the city a pleasant site. The problem was it was a terrible eyesore, with sewage draining in the river. The solution was to pour green dye into the water, so that they might discover where exactly does the sewage is being dumped. The, in 1961, a childhood friend of mr. Daley and a member of the Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Local, Mr. Stephen Bailey had an idea - why not dye the entire thing green? Three months later Chicagoans had the privilege to witness their emerald-colored river, when the city poured 100 pounds of chemicals into it. The river remained green for the entire week! The practise was repeated annually by the Plumbers Local, with the only difference being the amount. Today, the magical recipe calls for 25 pound of dye for the river to remain green for one day. The dyeing process starts at 9 a.m. on St. Paddy’s Day, when six members of the famed Plumbers Union get on two boats and using flour sifters, they spread the dye into the river. Some 45 minutes later and the Chicago River is the epitome os the patron saint of Ireland.
