21 Modern and Inspirational Dining Room Designs | Home Interiors Zone
One of the biggest problems with dining rooms is that they are often neglected just because they are such a trek from the kitchen.
Most often, formal dining areas are in a separate room, while informal dining areas are more commonly out in the open—frequently attached to the living room, family room, or kitchen.
Dining Room Furniture should be inspired by a sense of grandeur, impression, and elegance. To truly make a dining room formal, you need to pay attention to details from the window treatments down to the place mats.
For a different mood, consider creating a serious, luxurious space set aside specifically for great meals and conversation.
Don’t limit yourself to thinking that meals must be restricted to a formal table. A kitchen island, or even a counter top fitted with stools or high-sitting chairs, can also make for a fun dining experience.
Here are some modern designs for you to get the inspiration, when planning for the dining room furniture.

Bill and his wife Martha went to the state fair every year and every year Bill would say, "Martha, I'd like to ride in that airplane."GetAmused.com - The Airplane Ride
Martha always replied, "I know Bill, but that airplane ride costs 10 dollars, and 10 dollars is 10 dollars."
One year Bill and Martha went to the fair and Bill said, "Martha, I'm 81 years old. If I don't ride that airplane I might never get another chance."
Martha replied, "Bill, that airplane ride costs 10 dollars, and 10 dollars is 10 dollars."
The pilot overheard them and said, "Folks, I'll make you a deal. I'll take you both up for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say one word, I won't charge you; but if you say one word it's 10 dollars."
Bill and Martha agreed and up they went.
The pilot did all kinds of twists and turns, rolls and dives, but not a word was heard. He did all his tricks over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Bill and said, "By golly, I did everything I could think of to get you to yell out, but you didn't."
Bill replied, "Well, I was gonna say something when Martha fell out, but 10 dollars is 10 dollars."

Google has been known for a long time as the best place in the world to work. They offer free massages, gourmet meals, and professional haircuts at their beautiful campus in California. That right there puts them above 99.99% of the other companies in the world. At any rate, you already knew all that so lets move on.The Googlenairs :: Sexy College Girls :: Cherry Avenue
Have you ever wondered how much a Google employee makes? Well this data isn't extremely easy to find, if you don't believe me just search Google. However, here is some interesting statistics.
Google Programmer in Phoenix - $174,000/year
Google Programmer in California - $197,000/year
Google Programmer in Chicago - $222,000/year
Google Programmer in New York - $242,000/year
(according to Indeed.com)
...and thats just in salary. What other financial benefits does Google offer it's employees?
- 1) Google will pay $8,000 / year for you to continue your education. They just require you get at least 'B's in your classes.
- 2) If you refer another employee to Google's staff and they stay for 60 days, Google will pay your $2,000
- 3) If you are thinking about adopting a kid, Google will contribute $5,000 towards all the legal and adoption fees.
- 4) Depending how long you have worked at Google you can get up to 25 days (almost a month) paid vacation a year!
Now their is one more thing that is very interesting about Google employees financial lives. According to the New York Times there are estimated to be over 1,000 Google employees with Google stock worth over $5 million dollars. Woah wait! There are over 1,000 people working for Google who are worth OVER $5 MILLION DOLLARS! Even Google's former masseuse (did I mention employees get free massages) is a millionaire. Also, according to the New York Times, every employee that has been at Google for over a year is worth well over $250,000. Competing firms have said that Google alone has raised the average programmers salary by 50% over the last few year and with salaries and benefits like this I really don't doubt it.

In confirming earlier reports of Microsoft approaching Facebook about a potential sale following the Yahoo fall out, The Wall Street Journal has a very interesting tidbit: Google is now divided over whether or not to go forward with the search advertising deal it is trying out with Yahoo. Ouch, that knife in Yahoo’s back must hurt.
While it was trying to convince everyone that it was a viable company without selling to Microsoft, Yahoo made no secret that its trial search advertising deal with Google could bring in significant money to the company. Some had pegged this number to be as high as an additional billion dollars plus in cash flow. Under the agreement, Google was in charge of placing some advertisements on Yahoo search result pages.
The promise of this deal was also thought to be one of the reasons why the bottom didn’t completely fall out of Yahoo’s stock after Microsoft pulled its bid, and in fact, why it may have rallied a little bit after hitting a low of around $22-a-share (the stock is right now in the mid $25-a-share region).
Google and Yahoo were previously discussing extending the trial while Microsoft was still in hot pursuit of Yahoo. We called it a “charade” at the time, as it seemed clear what Google was doing: anything it could to stop Microsoft from acquiring Yahoo. That certainly rings true today if Google does in fact now walk away from the deal with the Microsoft threat gone (at least for now).
One question that will undoubtedly come up if Google walks away is if this will hasten Microsoft’s return with another bid? A decision by Google not to help Yahoo with its search advertising will leave Yahoo looking very vulnerable once again, even if such a deal was probably not in Yahoo’s best interest in the long term.
The Wall Street Journal report also says that talks between Yahoo and Time Warner continue about a possible AOL/Yahoo merger. However, these talks also have less urgency now that Microsoft has back away.
