Magic Money Tricks
May 9th, 2016 by Xarah

money-magic-hatNO CAMERA TRICKS. (I know there will always be hecklers claiming it to be fake.) If you know magic, you know these are actual tricks that can be performed. When I [Pinokiyo] made this video, I was very new to magic; only about 4 months in, so I may be rusty (well, I still am).

Magic became an addiction to me, so I tried to learn as much as I could in a short amount of time. I like doing money tricks the most but I can do other tricks as well (although not very good).

I hope you enjoy it!

I thought this was a fun video. Of course these are tricks.

Want to know how you can turn 215 Euros into hundreds… a day…?

Watch this short video here:

Let’s do some of our own magic 😉

my instagrams

Allright, I’m on Instagram.

I’ve had the account for a little while but finally decided to learn more about it. I searched my computer via Spotlight (Mac-Users know what I mean and actually found an email from somebody with a familiar name from the company I’m with and decided to watch it. Though I had thought the Instagram training would be by her, it wasn’t but the lady who did it, share a whole lot of information and I took 7 pages of notes.

And I started to upload images. This is the first I’ve done with her tips. Got on Iconosquare.com and added their widget to this blog of mine. You can see the latest pics here on this page and also in the navigation bar on the left.

Now, I’m off to go through my notes and add Apps to my phone. I’ve been to Venice Italy, and also on a day trip more or less through the grape vines of Wallis. So I have lots of pics on my phone.

And I most probably will share more of what I discover.

Please herz heartand comment the photos and #follow me I will #followback

10 Grammar Mistakes To Avoid
Jan 16th, 2015 by Xarah

English is not my first language but I always want to understand and use it better. So here are some grammar lessons. Most of it is a lesson to me and if you get something out of it even better 🙂
  1. Thou Shalt Not Freak Out Over Prepositions

    A preposition is the wrong thing to end a sentence with. But not really: Most of us don’t speak so stiffly that we’d say, “Grammar lovers are a group of which I’d like to be a part.” It’s cool to say, “Grammar lovers…they’re a group I’d like to be part of.” According to Patricia T. O’Conner, author of Woe Is I, the rule probably stems from the word’s meaning: “preposition” means “position before.” (She also notes that both Milton and Shakespeare ended plenty of sentences with prepositions and they did pretty well for themselves…)

  2. Thou Shalt Stop Saying “Should Of”

    It’s “should have” as in, “I should have paid more attention to my kindly English comp teacher.” (Same goes for “could of” and “would of.”)

    This one I see a lot from native English speakers and always wondered. Now I know which one is correct 🙂

  3. Thou Shalt Not Let Your Participles Dangle

    Hook your participial phrase to the right wagon, as in “Filled with rotting corpses, the wagon made its morbid way through the center of town.” If the corpses are in the wagon, you keep the phrase near the wagon. “The wagon made its morbid way through the center of town filled with rotting corpses,” is a totally different thing. (And, worst vacation spot ever.)
  4. Thou Shalt Not Abuse Quotation Marks

    It’s not “homemade” jam. It’s just… homemade jam. People seem to put quotes around a word they want to emphasize, but it’s wrong. Underline or italicize if you must.
  5. Thou Shalt Honor the Compound Adjectives

    The hyphen is your friend, your tried-and-true friend. If you’re modifying a noun with a series of words that are meant go together, you need to link them with hyphens. (There’s a big difference between a “baby eating dingo” and a “baby-eating dingo.”)
  6. Thou Shalt Learn the Difference Between “That” and “Which”

    Use “that” when the phrase that follows is essential to your sentence’s subject (called a restrictive clause, it limits the identity of the subject in some way). Use “which”–separated by a comma–when the subsequent clause can be excluded without messing with meaning. Example, “The bike that Jack stole, which had a broken bell, was never reported missing.” More here.
    http://www.kentlaw.edu/academics/lrw/grinker/LwtaThat_Versus_Which.htm
  7. Thou Shalt Use “I” Only as a Subject

    “I” is a nominative pronoun. Whoever made you think it was proper to always say “you and I” was dead wrong. (And maybe dead: that’s old-fashioned.) “Mom took Grace and I to the store” is wrong; it should be “Grace and me.” (If you can’t remember, take out the other part of the compound object: “Mom took I to the store” doesn’t sound so proper, does it?)
  8. Thou Shalt Make Correct Word Choices

    Maybe you’ve mastered “you’re” and “your” or “there,” “their,” and “they’re” but word confusion doesn’t end there. For example, “everyday” is a modifier, meaning commonplace or ordinary (think “everyday Joe”), while “every day” means each day.

  9. Thou Shalt Refrain from Double Negatives

    Parse this out: “I don’t want nobody telling me how to write” actually means you DO want someone to give you tips. “Don’t” and “nobody” cancel one another out. If you’re any good at math, remember it this way: when you multiple two negative numbers, you get a positive.
  10. Thou Shalt Literally Ban the Word Literally From Your Vocabulary (Until You Know How To Use It and Even Then Maybe Never)

    If you ever catch yourself saying, “I literally DIED” to a friend, then it’s safe to assume you’re a ghost. In this case, literally means you’re dead. “Figuratively” is the correct word to go with, though it doesn’t pack the same punch in claiming you’ve died. Best to just say, “I almost died.” (Much more poetic and mysterious if you trail off at the end, too…)

batman-grammar-mistakesThe other day I corrected an british man.

It was my Tuesday morning (early morning like 8 am) Entrepreneur Meetup group. After the meeting and most people had already left, I was chatting with Maria.

James, one of the attendees came over to us, ready to leave and said: “Can I give you my card?”.

And I said: “May I, because you are physically capable of giving us your card. The question is, may you (interrupt us)”.

He had to laugh because he as a native had to be corrected by a non-native english speaker. He said that not me 🙂

Of course it was all in good fun. We certainly had good laugh at it.

Momentum – Add-on – Review
Oct 17th, 2014 by Xarah

chrome addon momentum

This is a Cool Add-on

Momentum for Chrome

Momentum is an add-on for Chrome, of course free.

Every morning when you open Chrome you will see a new photo. A beautiful landscape.

The first time you type in your name.

And every day, the first time you open Chrome, you type in the goal for today, or what you want to focus on today.

Every time you open a new tab or window, you will see that photo, your name, and your goal for the day.

In the bottom right corner you have a „Todo“ button. There you can add some to-dos for the day.

In the top right corner you see the weather and temperature.

This is really a cool and fun plugin. Thank you Debbie for sharing this with us.

It helps me to think for a minute about my today’s goal 🙂

My name is Xarah and I work from home. I help people to create a monthly passive income.

Find me on Facebook, and leave a comment on how you like this cool addon called Momentum.
