Two speeding tickets in two days – I need a radar detector

Day 1

I was getting a little late to work that day, and thought a little speed won’t hurt, only to later get hurt of a big speeding ticket. It was only for driving mere single point above the speed limit. I wasn’t very fast, but ‘RULES ARE RULES’, this is what the officer told me when I asked for mercy.

7

I never break rules, especially traffic rules. That was my first time and I never thought I’ll be charged so heavily for such a negligible crime. Harsh!!

The very next day

This day was different (but not very much). I wasn’t getting late, but was in an easy mood. So I took my car, started my favorite jazz and went on the road. I was on the regular speed limit and didn’t realize that it has changed at the coming route because of some construction going on there. I was really surprised when I was charged this big ticket on violating the speed limit, that too unconsciously. They could have just left me with a warning. Oh the hurt caused to my pocket!!

You see in both the above cases I didn’t intentionally do it. It was negligibly above limit in the first case and I didn’t even realize in the second one. And the tickets given to me were actually more than I deserved.

I seriously needed a radar detector. I am not a rule breaker. I respect rules but I am no millionaire either. I mean getting heavily charged for almost no mistake? Not fair.

I am going to get myself a new radar detector right today.  And I advise you to buy one for you soon as well, if you don’t want to get stuck in similar situations like mine.

A radar detector must not be mistaken with a rule breaking license. It must be fairly acknowledged as a savior of innocent defaulters like me. A radar detector is not for saving you from police every day when you drive rashly. It is for those moments like above when you accidentally violate rules or negligibly get out of limit. At those times a radar detector will on the first hand alarm you of being above the speed limit and give you time to slow down before being caught. This will save your pockets from unnecessary ticketing (like above) and also help you follow traffic rules efficiently.

My new Bissell vacuum cleaner

Who doesn’t want to perpetuate cleanliness around themselves? For me this job is entitled to one and only one machine i.e. the new Bissell vacuum cleaner. And the best thing is that it is completely bagless. That means my efforts are much reduced as this machine seems magical the way it cleans and leaves my home spick and span. It is very efficient and works on a powerful 1500W battery. With a flick of a switch this cleaner can perform diligent tasks that include cleaning carpets, vacuuming the upholstery and cleaning almost every dust particle on the floor.

WORKING

It has subtle construction and appearance that will fit well in your washing space. It has an array of washable filters and is great for carpets, upholstery and all the things you always thought were impossible to clean. But the only drawback is a very narrow range of colour to select from.

Pros:

  • Quiet when in use
  • It is quite easy to empty the dust cap without any mess
  • It easily works on hard floors
  • Easy to assemble
  • Simple to handle
  • Easy to change the dust pod

Cons

The only limitation I noticed was that some models are equipped with differential roller brush that is difficult to clean and operate.

Affordability

The first thing for which most people buy this product is that it is quite economical considering its features. You should weigh its features and price since it provides a lot more features that you may not find in other lookalikes offered by other brands. This is one reason why it’s considered one of the best vacuums in 2017.

Technology

Bissell is a renowned name known for its bagless technology. This been said, Bissell vacuum cleaner comes with the latest technology in cleaning appliances. With an exceptional suction power you will be able to feel its effectiveness in cleaning. I can say without a doubt that this is one of the best vacuum cleaners available today in the market. Believe me on this one as I have a good experience of using bagless vacuum cleaners.

Who should buy this vacuum cleaner

If you need a vacuum cleaner whose price lies in an affordable range but is not as meticulous as the high-end cleaners, this is the perfect choice for you. If you want a luxury vacuum cleaner but can’t spare much on the budget, it could be your saviour in a difficult chore such as cleaning.

In my case the decision of buying this Bissell product has turned out to be a fair one.

                  

Why I Bought a Pillow Top Mattress

If you are struggling with your sleep, it is time for you to change your bed. I was having trouble in getting a good night’s sleep and finally decided to change my bed. I wanted a mattress that gives me extra comfort and padding.

Finally, last year, my researches lead me to buying a pillow top mattress for my home. I read a lot of expert mattress reviews and then I made my choice. A pillow top mattress is designed to provide extra comfort as it comes with extra foam and padding at the top. At first, you feel like there is a pillow kept at top of the mattresses. The foam used in the pillow mattress is normally used to make soft pillows.

Pillow top mattresses are not only comfortable but also durable. The spring used in the pillow top mattress holds the foam well. Along with memory foam, feathers, wool, latex foam and polyester foam are used to make these soft, everlasting mattresses.

A pillow top mattress is an ideal choice for a person who is suffering from back and neck pain. If you have similar problems, and always suffer from aches and pains when getting up from the bed after a night’s sleep, pillow top mattress is the perfect choice. In the last one year, after I started using my pillow top mattresses I have been getting a good sleep every night and my pain has reduced too.

Even though the additional layer of foam present in the pillow top mattresses gives it a firm look, the selling point of the mattress is the extra soft and comfort it provides to the sleeper. When you are using a pillow top mattress, there is no need to use any additional pads. You can get comfortable sleep by just lying on the mattress.

The main reason why I was attracted to the pillow top mattress was because of the health benefit it was offering. It was my doctor who advised me to go for pillow top mattresses as they are known for providing relief from back and muscle pain. A pillow top mattress also helps to overcome sleeping disorder and is suitable for sleeping in any position.

I have been using pillow top mattresses for a year now and really enjoy it. I have seen many people using pillow top mattresses for much longer without facing any problems. Even my parents found it very comfortable and it helps them to get a good night’s sleep and reduce unwanted pains.

In my view, if you are looking for a bed that provides you with extra comfort, relief from unwanted pains and mattresses that last long, pillow top mattresses is the ideal choice.
