Only a decade or two ago, a buffalo wing sounded like a rather odd and anatomically incorrect piece of meat, but those days are long past. Now, the buffalo wing/hot wing is one of the most popular food items in America, spreading across the nation at breakneck speed as more and more people find how much they enjoy eating chicken wings and legs doused in a variety of mouth-scorching sauces. This New York treat has become so popular that entrepreneurs from all corners of the nation are opening franchises that seem to do exceptionally well. If taking a bite of this hot market sounds like just the ticket to your personal business success, take a look at the following list of hot wing business opportunities.

Wings Over

Established in 1998 by two brave entrepreneurs on the campus of the University of Massachusetts, Wings Over has taken a giant leap into the franchising world that has already paid off for everyone involved. Their claim to fame is the seriousness that all employees bring to each franchise business. Franchisors, franchisees, management, and staff are all dedicated to doing everything in their power to bring the best they can to their guests, from the very first visit. And franchisees can take that to the bank, because from day one, the franchisor promises to respond to all questions and concerns as quickly as possible. Wings Over is in it for everyones good.

If you want to talk about wing quality, Wing Zone is the place to start; even among wing franchises, this 2-time Buffalo Wing Festival award winner has been noted as an exceptional maker of delicious chicken wings and sauces. Their greatness, however, is not limited to the quality of their food; part of what makes them so innovative in the industry is their concentration on take-out/delivery and not in-house dining. At no cost to the amount of business that comes through the doors, this choice cuts down overhead costs immensely, which means a greater profit ratio for the franchise.


Despite its fun in-store dcor and atmosphere, which is composed of 1940s-style aviation memorabilia and old plane parts, Wingstop is a serious franchise opportunity. At the very beginning, new franchise owners go through a 3-week intensive training, along with their general managers, to learn how to run a wing business the right way. Then, to show what theyve learned, franchisees and managers are given the opportunity to operate a mock-up Wingstop restaurant at the end of training. Its an original and very beneficial exercise for everyone involved, only proving again why this business has exploded to 450 restaurants in only 14 years and continues to grow at a rate of 30% each year.

Buffalo Wings & Rings

With 20 years of business under their belt, this business is one of the oldest wing restaurants available, which, if nothing else, should tell you that they have a powerful and long-lasting business model that you can trust. In line with that strong business model, they also have a very strong training system that the franchisor provides. After which, the franchisor also takes care of initial employee needs that his franchisees have, providing each with enough staff to run on for the first 3 weeks of business. This affords the franchisee time to amass his own staff without having to settle for sub-par employees. And with more of a menu than mere wings, the appeal to the public is wider than many wing restaurants.

Wingers Grill & Bar

The name implies a focus on hot wings, and while that menu item is a cherished one, Wingers Grill & Bar is more of a full diner than a wing shop, with a menu that covers a wider variety of foods and a restaurant design that includes a full-service bar. Part of the Slaymaker Group, owner of Tony Romas and T.G.I. Fridays, Wingers Grill & Bar is held by a company that excels in making and sustaining restaurants that have good public appeal and a lasting business system. Specifically, the small size and relatively small menu make this a far more cost-effective restaurant than most, something that any business owner will appreciate.

The variety of food franchises available is extraordinary these days, seemingly endless, and wings are one corner of it that seems to be taking root for the long haul. If you like the food, like the industry, and have a knack for hospitality, seriously consider getting in on the wing trend while theres still room.

Composting! A Enviornmental Gold Mine In Your Back Yard

By Richard Murray

Composting is not only one of the best things you can do for your garden, it is also one of the best things you can do for our environment. Knowing how to create and use compost is in our interest due to the tremendous problem of waste disposal. Landfills are becoming more and more difficult to find, so some municipalities are dealing with waste by refusing to pick up leaves and grass clippings.. About one-third of the space in our landfills is taken up with organic wastes from our yards and kitchens.

The end product from your compost bin will be a wonderful pile of black, crumbly humus which makes an ideal soil conditioner. Compost added regularly to your soil will benefit the soil by improving it’s texture such as loosening up clay soils and creating moisture holding capacity in sandy soils.

Composting, is the controlled decomposition of biodegradable organic matter. Instead of allowing nature to take its slow course, a compost pile or bin provides the optimal environment in which decomposition can thrive. To encourage the best results, the compost pile needs the correct mix of the following ingredients:

* Carbon

* Nitrogen

* Oxygen

With enough time, all biodegradable materials will eventually decompose, although some materials are not appropriate for backyard composting. Most backyard systems will not reach high enough temperatures to kill pathogens and vermin, so certain items such as meat scraps, dairy products and pet droppings are discouraged from use. A well balanced compost pile will not have an offensive smell

YouTube Preview Image

High carbon materials (browns), which convert to heat include:

* Dry straw and hay

* Autumn leaves

* Newspaper

High nitrogen materials (greens) which will allow the compost bacteria to thrive include:

* Green plant material such as garden residue, fresh hay, grass clippings, and weeds

* Animal manure; such as horse, cow, chicken, or guano

* Fruit and vegetable waste

* Seaweed (rinse well to remove salt)

* Coffee grounds and filters

A few leaf species such as live oak, southern magnolia and holly trees are too tough and leathery for easy composting, also avoid all parts of the black walnut tree as they contain a plant poison that survives composting. It is also common sense to avoid using poison oak, poison ivy, and poison sumac in your compost.

The proportions of these materials will make a difference in the rate of decomposition. The best ratio is about 25 or 30 parts of browns to one part of greens. Too much carbon slows the composting process and too much nitrogen will cause odors.

As a convenience, keep a small compost pail in the kitchen to bring your scraps to the pile every few days. Keep a lid on the container to discourage insects and odors.

A well chosen site will speed up the composting process. Find a level, well drained sunny area preferably over dirt or grass. If you plan to be using kitchen scraps, keep it close to the back door and also close to the garden so that it will be used on a regular basis and not forgotten.

Home composting uses a variety of techniques, running from passive composting (throw everything into a pile in the corner and leave it alone) to active, which consists of monitoring temperature, turning the pile on a regular basis and adjusting the materials on a regular schedule. A well managed system may produce a finished product in as little as three to four weeks, but this involves some participation, ranging from turning the pile on a regular basis to a major commitment of time and energy.

Is very helpful to have a compost bin enclosed in a structure either homemade or purchased. The bin should measure at least about 3 ft. by 3 ft. and should have air spaces so air circulation can occur. Materials such as used freight pallets, chicken wire, builders’ hardware cloth or concrete blocks can all be utilized to create a three sided structure. You may find it desirable to have two bins, one for fresh material while the composting process is happening in the other bin. Leave one side open for access or create a gate that can be opened for access. A tarpaulin may be used to cover the top of the bin in rainy weather to prevent the compost from getting too wet.

Start your compost pile with a 3 in. layer of course plant material such as small twigs or straw. Next place your first layer of plant and kitchen refuse. The next layer should be a nitrogen rich material such as fresh manure if it is available, fresh grass clippings, fresh hay, or succulent green weeds. If the waste materials are fairly free of soil, a small amount of soil, a compost starter, a layer of old compost or good gardening soil added to each layer will introduce necessary microorganisms.

Water the pile just enough to keep the contents moist but not soaking wet. In a week or two, the pile should heat up to approximately to 160 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature many of the weed seeds and harmful organisms will be killed. Approximately a month after this point the pile should be forked over to thoroughly mix the materials in the pile. Repeat this step in another five to six weeks. If the pile is decreasing in size after this time, you will know that it is composting properly.

Another system of composting is called sheet composting. A layer of organic material, about 3 to 4 in thick is spread over your garden, and then covered with a 2 in. layer of soil. The organic material is allowed to decay at least three months prior to cultivating. This can be done over the winter when your garden is fallow and will provide you with a good start for your spring crops.

A different concept of composting that is rapidly gaining in popularity is worm farming, or vermiculture. Small scale vermin-composting is well-suited to turn kitchen waste into high-quality soil, where space is limited. There are suppliers of worm-farming equipment on the internet to help you get started.

Style-conscious, modern males understand the importance of paying attention to the finer details and accessorising their outfits. Accessories inject any outfit with a touch of individuality, and can be used within a wide variety of looks, too.Whether its a bold pocket square brightening up a dull-looking jacket, or a backpack to carry your daily essentials, a well-developed accessory collection forms the cornerstone of any successful wardrobe.

There are many ways you can achieve a individuality within your outfits. With this in mind, we picked out the key accessories men should buy.


Once viewed as a convenient item to carry your necessary tools, the bag has gone on to establish itself as a key part of mens wardrobe.While there are many different options to choose from, there are few key styles you should be considering.

The document holder/pouch is not only ideal for carrying your work documents, but its slim silhouette makes it extremely practical.Looks best when paired with your smartest attire. A slim-fitting suit would be perfect; as would a button-down shirt, chinos and blazer combination.

If you are a man who carries around a lot of belongings daily, then consider the backpack.No longer just for kids, this has developed into a practical essential for the modern man. The trick is to step out of your comfort zone. A printed backpack looks best with casual ensembles.

The ever present hold all is a perfect accessory for long haul flights, and weekend breaks alike. The traditional leather design is perfect for the modern man on the move.

Formal Watch

A watchs most basic function is to tell time, but when dressing formally, it does much more than that. It can subtly compliment an outfit and add class to an appearance. The best watches for formal attires are the simpler watches. Not watches with a million designs or hands or numbers. Twelve numbers, three hands, and a nice plain face will nicely compliment an already nice outfit.

Leather Belt

An absolute essential, this provides the finishing touch to any formal or casual outfit. Opt for a reversible black/brown leather version and you have something that will match both your brown and black shoes.


A hat truly defines your personal style. This winter, perhaps the biggest accessory trend is the fitted beanie/knit skull caps.This hats slender silhouette ensures it doesnt look out of place with your casual outfits. If colour is not your thing, a neutral coloured design would work equally well.

If you are the kind of guy who likes to push boundaries and follow high fashion, then consider the beret hat. However, if this is too far out of your comfort zone, the classic baker boy makes a great alternative. You can integrate it into both smart and casual looks with ease.


Ties have always been an essential formal accessory, but gradually we are seeing textured ties creating ripples in the fashion world. Cotton and silk designs are being replaced by heavier fabrics such as cord and flannel. These rugged textures are perfect for the winters, and can beworn with range of different outfits. Choose a checked flannel tie and match it with a slim-cut suit and solid shirt.

Formal/office wear can quickly become stifling in the summer if you dont get your materials right. Choosing a lightweight tie will mark you out as a man who pays attention to the finer details. Cotton, linen or, silk – wear them for weddings, in the office and for any other occasion that requires you to knot up.

Statement Sunglasses

A genuine essential accessory, sunglasses are effortlessly cool. Although aviators, wayfarers and club masters remain popular and timeless, this season sees the rise of statement frames.Everything from modern D-frames to retro round silhouettes are now available in a plethora of bold colours and patterns. Buy a cool pair, and look edgy!


From being considered a style sin, mens jewellery has become wardrobe staple in recent years, and bracelets have led the charge. The easiest piece of jewellery for the modern man to wear and pull off, it adds a touch of personality. Remember the ever stylish Johnny Depp! If you desire something classic, choose the simple leather, and metal bracelets. These materials are extremely masculine, with minimalist versions looking just as good with a t-shirt as they do with a suit.

When accessorising your looks, exercise caution and consideration. Throwing all the above into the mix is always going to come across as try hard, particularly if your canvas is as simple as a shorts and t-shirt combination.But, most importantly, always dress for yourself rather than blindly following trends accentuating your own personality is key.

Simple Steps To Building A Solar Panel

  • Posted on June 29, 2018 at 1:26 am

Click Here For More Specific Information On:

By Alyssa Davis

You can harness the sun’s power to produce your own energy using solar panels. And even though there are some incredibly sophisticated solar panel options on the market, you can also build a solar panel yourself and save big. Solar panel kits and instructions for building solar panels are widely available in local home improvement stores, as well as online, and you can use these kits to build a solar panel for much less expense than buying a pre-fabricated panel. You can also purchase guides for building the panels very inexpensively or find them at your local library. The supplies to build a solar panel run around $200, although that can be more or less depending on the area of the country that you live in.

Uses for Solar Panels

Before you begin your quest of building a solar panel, take some time to reflect on what you will actually be using the panel for. It is unlikely that you want to power your entire home with a solar panel. But keep in mind that everything that you can run from solar energy will end up saving you in the long run, and it will also allow the planet to breathe easier. Evaluate your home and property to be certain that you have an appropriate area to install solar panels. If your home is completely shaded, solar power will not be a great option unless there are some trees that can be trimmed away; if you are shaded by buildings then you may be out of luck. The roof is usually the best location for solar panels, and this will likely be true in your situation, unless your roof is not angled in a way that exposes it to the maximum amount of sunlight possible. In this instance, you may wish to install the panels in a location that is adjacent to the home and that is angled correctly to harness solar energy.

Selecting Kits or Instructions

Many folks prefer to buy a solar panel kit; this is particularly true if they have little or no experience with solar panel installation. There are also lots of companies that market DIY instructions and guides for installation that will make it a cinch to build and install your own panels easily and quickly, without buying a kit. Dependent upon your individual skill level, you may want to think about buying instructions that are packaged alongside a tutorial video that gives you step-by-step guidance in building your panels. You will find a wide range of price points when it comes to kits, guides, and instructions, as the quality of the instructions and the clarity of the guides is widely varied. Be certain to comparison shop before making a purchase. Doing research about solar panels and their construction and installation online, reading the reviews that other consumers have written, and visiting message boards to read comments from other consumers are all ideal ways to find the right

product for your needs.

Other Things to Consider

Another major consideration when examining the different kits and instructions on the market is to pay close attention to the finished look of the panels. You want to end up with a finished look that will add to, not detract from, the look of your home; you certainly do not wish to end up with a neighborhood eyesore on your roof. By doing careful research and following the directions that come with your product, you should be able to end up with panels that not only look good but that are valuable in reducing your energy consumption and monthly bills as well.

The furniture that you chose to design your room in must be able to endure, ‘mother nature’ and all of her seasons. To give you a creative nudge, wicker is commonly used in sunroom and patio room additions. Wicker is creative looking, and well put together, from its sturdy construction to its lightweight.

On the down side to wicker, in the cold months the wicker may crack and begin to become moldy, and may require a substantial amount of cleaning. This may not be the type of furniture to use in your sunroom. A more all seasoned and longer lasting furniture choice is metal; it is good source of furniture if you live in a geographical area where winter always seems to outweigh summer, because it can be coated with such materials as PVC, and weather coating for better durability.

What Are Venetian Blinds?

By John Schofield

Venetian blinds can be considered as multi-purpose window coverings. They are useful in so many ways. They are more than just plain window treatment because they can make a room look spacious. Moreover, they can help control the amount of light that goes into a room. If you need privacy, these blinds can provide it too. These venetian blinds can give you more value if you use them at home. Their benefits make them popular among homeowners, such as versatility and affordability. They are also flexible because they can suit any room decoration and they can be used to express different taste and personality. There are also different materials that are used in venetian blinds such as metal, PVC, wood, and others.

Choosing Venetian Blinds

In choosing venetian blinds, there are several factors that you need to consider. You cannot just go around picking anything up for your home. First, you have to know how you plan to use the blinds. The right use of the blinds should be kept in mind so that you can pick up the right one for your home. Some homeowners want to control light, maintain privacy or enjoy both. Second, think about where you plan to install the blinds, whether it is indoors or outdoors. Third, make sure that your preferences must be well catered to with the blinds that you will choose.

Benefits of Venetian Blinds

There are many advantages in using these blinds. These are the reasons why these blinds are preferred by many homeowners. These benefits include the following:

1. They can be customised according to how you would like to place and use them. There are plenty of choices in terms of textures and colours in venetian blinds that can easily match the general decoration at home. These blinds can even be used to enhance the appeal of your home. You can bring your personal preferences by using designs on the slats. When the blinds are closed, the designs will be visible. Aluminium blinds can best provide a metallic finish. Wood venetian blinds are also ideal for use if you want a simple but elegant appeal to a room. Cheaper wooden blinds are those made of faux wood.

2. They are affordable and can be easily installed. When you install these venetian blinds personally, see to it that the blinds are installed straight at the right places. Crooked window blinds will fail to operate well. These blinds can also be bought at affordable prices from a home improvement store.

3. They can be customised to your windows. It is important that these blinds must have the right size that matches the windows where you plan to hang them. Blinds of the wrong size are hard to install. In some cases, they might not even be installed at all. Lightweight blinds should be used well because they are prone to breaking. Damp rag cloth can be used to wipe the dust off the slats. You can use lemon wooden cleaner or lemon oil in cleaning the slats.
