    Hi preeti
    All the recipies are very useful ...what I like most is that they come in handy in the day to day life......but one thing missing is the shelf life.....kindly mention how long can the preparation be stored.......

    Forklift training is for those few who have a desire to enjoy
    the occupation of a forklift operator. They might be eying
    this occupation for the fat paychecks which it offers along
    with an aim of giving their best to the job. Nevertheless,
    the idea of getting enrolled for a scheduled training
    course for learning the operations of a forklift is surely daunting.
