Frog Jumped Into the Pond Drinking Game

The frog jumped into the pond drinking game is a word game that involves a lot of repetition. It does not require any planning or any additional equipments and can be played in the bar, in the rooms, at a party or just about anywhere. As long as there are alcoholic beverages of their choice, the players are good to go. This game needs two players or more and depends heavily on the player’s ability to be alert enough to know when they turn to speak and what they are supposed to say.

The frog jumped into the pond drinking game is a quick fire drinking game that involves the players spelling out the words in the title. The players in a circle go around repeating the statement “one frog jumped into the pond, plop” in turns in a clockwise manner.

All the participants sit around in a circle facing each other and the first player starts by saying “one frog”, to which the next player has to say “jumped over”, the third person says “the pond” and the last person says “plop”. The number of words said in any one game round depends on the number of players. If there are more than four players then each player can say one word from the statement instead of two. For example instead of a player saying “jump over”, one player can say “jump” and the other say “over”.

The “drinking game” then starts again but in this round the first player says “two frogs” once and not “one frog” as were said initially. The next person says “jumped over” twice now. The third one also says the words “the pond” twice and the last person says “plop, plop”. After the last two “Plops” have been said the game begins with the first player saying “three frogs” and the rest saying their words three times.

In the frog jumped into the pond drinking game the other players repeat their words according to the number of frogs mentioned by the first player. So the key is to always listen to the number of frogs being said by the player who starts every round of the game. The first player will only say the number of frogs once so it is up to the other players to keep up and know where the game is at.

The players are required to say their words immediately without hesitation, pausing for too long, mixing up their words or saying the wrong words that are not even in the given phrase or messing up in any way. Every time a player breaks any of these rules they are required to take drinks according to the number of frogs mentioned. For example if one player says their words eight times and there are nine frogs, they have to drink all nine drinks. After they have taken their drinks the game starts all over again with the first player starting with the words “one frog”.

Fashion On A Tight Budget

Fashion trends and styles are always changing in today’s world. It’s hard just to keep up with this constantly evolving world, keeping track of what’s in and what’s out. And if you can keep up, it’s almost impossible on an average salary to afford to incorporate all these new styles into your closet. If you’re looking to incorporate more of today’s trends and styles into your wardrobe without spending a ton of money, here are three tips to stay fashion-relevant on a tight budget.

1. Accessories are Key

An easy and inexpensive way to incorporate fashion trends into your daily wardrobe is to try out trends with accessories first. If snakeskin is super popular this season, buy a snakeskin purse or scarf, instead of a more expensive top or dress. If the runway is full of edgy punk-rock pieces, try out the trend with a punk-rock inspired bracelet or necklace, instead of investing in an expensive pair of boots. Accessories let you try out a trend without spending too much money.

2. Invest in Skirts

Cheap skirts are another way to try out trends without spending too much. Buy several inexpensive skirts that can be worn with a myriad of outfits and pieces. When you have a closet full of basic skirts, it’s easy and affordable to add trendy tops, shoes, and accessories to complete your look and try out a new style or look.

3. Thrift Shop & Bargain Hunt

One of the best kept secrets of the fashion and budget savvy is the genius of shopping at thrift stores. Cheap clothing pieces in all shapes, styles, sizes, and trends can be found at thrift shops for a fraction of the price you’d pay at a department store.
Keeping up in today’s fashion world can be difficult and expensive! Stay stylish and keep your wallet full by making use of accessories,cheap skirts, and thrift stores.

Sprint’s HTC 8XT brings BoomSound and HTC camera to Windows Phone 8

Sprint HTC 8XT retail package

I was given an HTC 8X at the Windows Phone 8 launch event and loved the design that seemed to disappear in your hand. Sprint hasn’t seen much Windows Phone love, but has two decent options for customers. I’ve been using the HTC 8XT for a couple days and wanted to share some first impressions.

The HTC 8XT from Sprint brings a mixture of HTC’s best with design aspects of the HTC 8X and 8S, along with features from the excellent HTC One. It is available now from Sprint for $99.99 with a 2-year contract.

Hardware

It comes in California Blue and at first glance looks like a slightly larger 8S with a different shade of color on the bottom button area. Specifications include:

  • 4.3 inch 800×480 pixels resolution Gorilla Glass display
  • 1.4 GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB integrated storage with microSD card (up to 64GB supported)
  • 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.6 megapixel front camera
  • HTC BoomSound front facing stereo speakers
  • Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, and NFC
  • 1,800 mAh battery
  • Dimensions of 5.2 x 2.6 x 0.39 inches and 4.9 ounces

As you can see this is more of a mid-range device with the lower resolution display, 8GB of internal storage, and processor. Then you see high end aspects with the HTC BoomSound speakers, Beats Audio, NFC, and 1GB of RAM.

Like the HTC 8X, the 8XT feels great in your hand and if I was a Sprint customer looking for a Windows Phone then this would probably be the one. The camera has been improved over the 8X with a more attractive design around the lens and new HTC Camera utility. The HTC Camera utility gives you some different effects to use when you capture your photo, just like the HTC One camera utility. You also get the ability to capture photos in burst mode with the software then selecting the best shot so you can make sure to capture the best photo. You can also capture still images while recording video, something again seen on HTC Android devices.

Software

The HTC 8XT launches with Windows Phone 8, which is a very functional OS that has enough apps to compete with iOS and Android. You will find all the typical Windows Phone 8 functionality in the 8XT with some HTC-specific experiences included. Windows Phone 8’s latest Data Sense utility is included with Office, OneNote, Wallet, and more. Don’t forget you can also download and install HERE Maps from Nokia on the 8XT.

HTC includes their weather/news/stocks utility, handy flashlight app, photo enhancer, unit converter, and utility to manage space on your device. As I mentioned earlier, they also provide an HTC Camera app similar to what Nokia does with their special apps. I haven’t taken a ton of photos yet, but so far I am pleased with the camera performance and functionality of the HTC Camera application.

Sprint also includes apps and services, but like all Windows Phone devices you can easily remove anything you want, unlike on Android devices. Sprint apps and services include Sprint Music Plus, Sprint TV and Movies, Visual Voicemail, and Slacker Radio.

I was pleasantly surprised to find Telenav Scout on the HTC 8XT since I find this application to be quite useful on my iPhone 5. I did not know they had a Windows Phone 8 client and after trying it on the HTC 8XT I saw it is also available on T-Mobile Windows Phone devices so I

Great Small Business Event Marketing

For more going on fifteen years, I have been helping business owners and organizations hold events. The events ranged from races, to fairs, to concerts and dinners. Though the attendance varied greatly between them, the goals of management were often met and exceeded.

Events are the best way to:

get prospects to visit your store for the first time

build upon existing relationships with customers and vendors

grow existing lines of revenue

rally and motivate workforce and volunteers

expand branding

grow online presence and position

have a great time!

Events are very community oriented, and driven by the same. Bringing people together creates buzz.

There are three major areas of an event: event marketing (getting the brand out), event management (making sure the day is planned well and executed successfully), and event planning (getting all the details together to meet the event vision). Working together, these three items, thought out and coordinated, make great events.

I am often asked questions related to any of these three items. The questions I hear range from band and entertainment to how to use Facebook. Small businesses can do a lot with a little encouragement and direction. They can go really far with a little help from someone in the event industry. Small businesses and Organizations have a lot of gusto. They are ready to go all the time. And when they can see that something will get them further, they often grab the opportunity.

Small businesses are flexible. They can have a simple, low cost event marketing schedule coordinated with other ongoing marketing. Pairing an event with current expenditures creates broad public awareness. With current promotions are paired with a chance to experience a business or product, customers have incentive to participate.

I have often seen this occur. In one case, a restaurant advertised their foods as well as an evening with live music. Some monies from the night would be donated to the city fireworks fund. This night brought some business and money for community fireworks. The result was the night of the fireworks show, the restaurant was full to the brim. They had one of their best nights ever.

The power of small business event marketing is understated. Giving customers a reason to experience a small business in the form of a party invitation has leverage. As a small business owner, having an event can be fun, rewarding, and valuable to sales overall.
