How to become a male escort

A friend recommended I rent a friend from Dukes of Daisy as I needed an active and adventurous companion to accompany me on a weekend away.  Dreading the thought of going away with other friends on my own I decided to give it a go.

I chose Duncan aged 41 as he described himself as active, caring and similar interests to me and the kind of person I would like to spend time with.

Why not become a male escort ?

I highly recommend Dukes of Daisy as the person Duncan turned out to be was the exact person described to me. There were no hidden agendas, no expectations so I felt relaxed from the outset. He was sociable, polite and the best thing about Duncan is that he really knows how to treat a lady and make her feel special. He was easy to talk to as he is well educated and knowledgeable of world affairs.

The next occasion was a wedding and I needed a partner, I didn’t hesitate to book Duncan again and to my delight he’s a great dancer so lots of fun was had by us.

I rent Duncan from Dukes of Daisy on a regular basis as I have got to know him and feel comfortable and confident with him to partner me to any function.

Food glorious food!!!

With summer around the corner, the clocks have changed, days are becoming longer with excitement in the air. Everyone is preparing for the summer by getting their tan at a salon, frequenting the gym, people have taken to running and cycling along the Thames. What better way to get into shape than with some scrumptious unusual salads. I found these delicious summer salad recipes from Jamie Oliver, which were too good not to share:

SUMMER CHICKPEA SALAD
INGREDIENTS:

1 small red onion, peeled
1-2 fresh red chillies, deseeded
2 handfuls ripe red or yellow tomatoes
1 lemon
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
410 g tinned chickpeas, drained, or around 4 large handfuls of soaked and cooked chickpeas
1 handful fresh mint, chopped
1 handful fresh green or purple basil, finely ripped
100 g feta cheese

Chickpeas are pretty under-used in this country, to be honest. In places like Morocco, Italy and Spain they are prized like our Jersey new potato. Still, we have a lot more choice now than we used to have. If you go to a Spanish deli or specialist counter, you will generally be able to find jars of cooked chickpeas in water and these are the ones you want to make this salad really good. They should look a little plumper than tinned chickpeas but, of course, both tinned ones or dried ones can be used successfully. This salad is a great one for making up as you go along; you can use different spices, sun-dried tomatoes and spicy chorizo sausages, for instance.

First of all, finely slice your red onion. Once that’s done, finely slice your chillies then roughly chop your tomatoes, mixing them in with the onion and chillies. Scrape all of this, and the juice, into a bowl and dress with the juice of half a lemon and 3 tablespoons of good extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste. Heat the chickpeas in a pan, then add 90 per cent of them to the bowl. Mush up the remaining chickpeas and add these as well – they will give a nice creamy consistency. Allow to marinate for a little while and serve at room temperature.

Just as you’re ready to serve, give the salad a final dress with the fresh mint and basil. Taste one last time for seasoning – you may want to add the juice from your remaining lemon half at this point. Place on a nice serving dish and crumble over the feta cheese.

SUMMER TOMATO AND HORSERADISH SALADSummer Tomato Salad

INGREDIENTS:
4 large handfuls mixed tomatoes
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
good-quality red wine vinegar
½ clove garlic, grated
2 teaspoons fresh horseradish, grated, or jarred hot horseradish
1 small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely sliced

For this salad it’s great to try and get a whole mixture of different tomatoes, at room temperature, nice and ripe. Let them sunbathe on the window ledge if need be! Try and get hold of fresh horseradish – give your greengrocer a challenge to get some in.

Cut the bigger tomatoes into slices about 1cm/½ inch thick. You can halve the cherry tomatoes or leave them whole. Then sprinkle them all with a good dusting of sea salt. Put them in a colander and leave them for 30 minutes. What’s going to happen here is that the salt will draw the excess moisture out of the tomatoes, intensifying their flavour. Don’t worry about the salad being too salty, as a lot of the salt drips away.

Place the tomatoes in a large bowl and dress with enough extra virgin olive oil to loosen (approximately 6 tablespoons), and 1–2 tablespoons of vinegar, but do add these to your own taste. Toss around and check for seasoning – you may or may not need salt but will certainly need pepper. Add the garlic. Now start to add the horseradish. Stir in a couple of teaspoons to begin with, toss around and taste. If you like it a bit hotter, add a bit more horseradish. All I do now is get some finely sliced flat-leaf parsley (stalks and leaves) and mix this into the tomatoes. Toss everything together and serve as a wonderful salad, making sure you mop up all the juices with some nice squashy bread.

This salad is fantastic with roast beef, goat’s cheese or jacket potatoes. And to be honest, even if you put these tomatoes in a roasting tray and roasted them with some sausages scattered around them it would be nice.

Whether it’s delicious vegetarian or vegan recipes you’re after, or ideas for gluten or dairy-free dishes, you’ll find plenty here to inspire you.

Have fun exploring the countryside on your bicycle

Pack the car and don’t forget bicycles and walking shoes. Why I hear you ask? We are off to the countryside for a weekend getaway, a well-deserved break from the hectic city life to a Bed and Breakfast West Sussex. I decided to treat my wife for her birthday to a mini break at a romantic bed and breakfast that my colleague recommended. The beauty of this accommodation is that it’s only an hour’s drive from home so we will have more time to spend together enjoying each other.

We both enjoy being active so it’s the perfect surrounding for us to explore with an added bonus of home cooked meals and a scrumptious breakfast.

I am very excited to be spending quality time on this special occasion with my wife and for her to be spoilt with all the activities I have planned.

Professional, affordable and excellent service from London architects

Architects have studied for many years however they don’t learn to be passionate about being an architect; passion can’t be taught it is something that sets people apart in the industry. When dealing with DBLO Associates the one thing that was most noticeable is how very passionate they are about their projects they work on and the people they work with. Their clients are treated like they are the only client with superb professionalism taking into account the clients requirements, budget and timing.

Dblo Associates have designed some well-known buildings in and around London making sure their work is always of exceptional standard. Brilliant architects Kensington and architects Holland Park are not always easy to find but rest assured if you chose dblo Associates you won’t go wrong, in fact you will soon find yourself recommending them to colleagues and friends alike.

Do some research when requiring the services of well-known good architects around London and you will soon discover that the name dblo Associates will be recommended time and time again.

Holiday Lets London luxury holiday accommodation

Temple

To the north of the Royal Courts of Justice is the Temple an area in London close to the Temple Church. It is one of the main notable legal districts of the capital. The Temple area contains the Inner Temple and Middle Temple which are two of the Inns of Court. The 12th century name recorded was Novum Temple which means ‘New Temple’ named from a house belonging to the Knights of Templar. The name is shares with Inner Temple, Middle Temple, Temple Church and Temple Bar. It consists of barrister’s chambers, solicitors’ offices, notable legal institutions such as employment Appeal Tribunal.

Originally being the precinct of Knights Templar whose Temple church was named in honor of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.  The pope granted their possessions to the Knights of Hospitaller upon their dissolution where King Edward II ignored the claims to the Knights of Hospitaller and divide the Temple into Inner Temple and Outer Temple. The rightful claim was given back to the Knights of Hospitaller in 1324 but yet gain to another King Edward II favorite called Hugh le Despencer. On Hugh’s death n 1326 the Inner Temple was passed onto the first Mayor of London then to William de Langford in 1333 for a ten year lease.

In order to visit it more places with similar history Holiday Lets London Flats for rent near British Museum recommends you to visit St Paul’s Cathedral. Also Holiday Lets London states when looking to rent a flat in London, to do an in depth research on each attraction to be visited hence the awe of the place can be enjoyed. Also ensure that yourself catering accommodation is in close proximity to all the attraction sites you are planning to visit, this will make you less tired and would help you save money.

There was a petition in 1137 by the Knights towards the king to rectify the grant to a layman. As a result the Inner Temple was divided between the consecrated land to the east and unconsecrated land in the west. Hence the eastern land was called the Inner Temple and the western land the Middle Temple namely. Langford continued to hold the Middle Temple for a reduced rent. The area of the Temple was increased due to the Victoria Embankment when the River Thames was embanked. The original bank of the river can be seen in a drop in ground level from the Inner Temple Gardens or the stairs at the bottom of Essex Street. The core of the district is found in the City Of London and consists of two Inns of Court: Inner Temple (eastern part) and Middle Temple (western part). Both the Inns each have their own dining halls, gardens and libraries and administrative offices all located in their part of the temple. A majority of the land is taken over by buildings called chambers where the barristers practice. Many of the chambers were used as residential quarters for the barristers until the 20th century until a shortage of space for professional purposes limited the residential quarters to the top floors where it was occupied by senior most barristers. Another building to visit while at the Tempe is the 19thcentury building called Old The Outer Temple situated between Essex Court and Strand which is just on the outside of the Middle Temple.

Just like Holland Park giving its name to the Holland Park tube station and Hyde Park giving name to the Hyde Park corner tube station; Temple gives it name to the Temple tube station. Holiday Lets London recommends visiting the Holland Park and Hyde Park which are two interesting attractions sites of London harboring its own stories. While browsing our high specification London holiday studio visit What’s In on London to enlighten yourself on these other attraction sites that Holiday Lets London Flats for rent near Tower Bridge London states that could make your visit to London worthwhile.

DIY Marquee finance partner makes buying a marquee an option

This is a message from DIY Marquee finance partner which makes buying a marquee or a DIY Party Tent and Pop-Up DIY Marquee an affordable option.

We have partnered up with Gable Asset Finance in the UK to provide businesses with individually tailored finance packages.

About Gable Asset Finance

✔ Financial Solutions

✔ 98% acceptance rate

✔ Rates from 3% Flat!

✔ Decision within 2 hours

✔ Immediate Funds Available

✔ 100% Tax Deductible

Financing

Gable offers a full range of equipment leasing and financial solutions which can offer many advantages over outright cash purchases for all businesses in the private and public sectors; from sole traders to local authorities.

Gable Asset Finance funds a diverse range of assets, for all shapes and sizes of business. The customer negotiates the purchase price of the asset then Gable Asset Finance arranges the right financial package. Quite often the facility is already in place, being part of a pre-negotiated credit line. Financing in this way allows you to let your equipment pay for itself over a period of time for a small monthly payment.

Financing equipment is becoming a popular way to start a business or to improve the cash flow within an existing business.

With little or no capital expenditure, many business owners have reaped good financial rewards, by utilizing tax efficient finance agreements.

Small business finance

Gable Asset Finance provides tailor-made finance solutions to small businesses, medium enterprises and start-up companies (subject to status). Offering competitive rates on small business finance, Gable Asset Finance leads the market in providing affordable solutions in a challenging economic climate.

Corporate asset finance

Corporate asset finance provides a solution to companies that are in need of new capital assets. Gable Asset Finance, one of the leading providers of corporate asset finance in the UK, offers several different types of funding that can help businesses secure the assets and equipment they so desperately require.

WHY LEASE?

Leasing is probably the most popular method of financing new equipment today. Virtually any item of equipment can be leased from a Sunbed to a total new refit i.e. from £1000 to several hundred thousand pounds.

SHOULD I PAY CASH OR LEASE?

You may be able to afford to buy the equipment outright, but before you make this decision you must consider the following:

  1. All leasing payments are rental payments and as such are an allowable business expense, therefore if a business is making profits they reduce the profit by the amount of the rentals you pay each year which in turn reduces your tax bill.
  2. Lease payments are the same throughout the lease contract. This means that increases in interest rates do not affect you and enables you to budget your cash flow more effectively.
  3. Leasing enables you to save your cash for other purchases such as new stock, staff training, advertising and new business opportunities.

What did Elena from Clapham have to say about Builders in Wimbledon and builders in Wandsworth.

I had the entire house gutted, built a kitchen side extension and loft.  Darren and his team did an amazing job.  I can’t recommend them highly enough and I wouldn’t look anywhere else.  I have recommended SLR to a friend who is also delighted with the work.  The team are polite, tidy, highly professional, and the attention to detail is first class.  Budget wise SLR is transparent with costs and kept me up to date throughout the build. Don’t go anywhere else!
