My sister in law who is in the medical field shops from pink scrubs online because it is her way of supporting breast cancer awareness. I give little donation in supporting this cause. But, please don't force me to wear pink shirt as I can't do that!

At home, you can see permanent magnets in refrigerators. Notice how you close the refrigerator door? That said appliance uses permanent magnets. Did you know that permanent magnets comes in different shapes and sizes? Its shape and sizes depends on what you need it for.
I can't have a clear head after waking up without coffee, and I do drink more. Sometimes when I am at work, I crave for coffee too specially when I get tired and sleepy. I am just glad that the gas station in front of our office has a commercial grindmaster so they always have a hot coffee anytime of the day.
Actually, we do have coffee at work, but sometimes, I will just grab a cup from the store along with some other stuff that I want to munch on.

These are the stack of woods that we have for our fireplace. One morning I woke up and saw this hawk. It was beautiful. I hurried inside and got the cam. I was surprise of myself having able to figure out the zoom part of the camera (lol). I am glad the hawk stayed there for a bit, enough for me to capture its beauty.

Are you engaged into online selling? Is it a profitable business?
My daughter is not very comfortable about getting near the fire which is a good thing. When we tried to roast marshmallows in our fireplace, she was scared to get near the fire so she didn't look at the fire while roasting.
After we roasted, she told us that she really didn't like roasted marshmallow and she rather eat it plain.

In the Philippines, there are areas where wearing helmet is not required. I usually drive those area since I don't have a helmet there. Unlike here in the USA, you have to have a helmet to operate a motorcycle. I know that Nexx XR1R Carbon is one of the brands that most riders bought. In the future when we decide to buy a motorcycle, I should check this brand of helmet.

I know how my wife enjoys fighting the crowd during midnight black friday sales. Sometimes, I can't understand why but since she enjoys it, I let her enjoy the moment with her frieds. I stay home with our daughter while she shops around with her friends.
I once told her that there is no use fighting the cold weather and thousands of shoppers when you can also get anything you want during Cyber Monday. I told her to check out BestCyberMonday.com because I am sure she can find whatever she desires in that website for the price that she is willing to pay. She did checked it but she said that she will do both - Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping.
Anyway, I have been wishing for a bigger tv for our living room. The one that we have is too small for our big living room. There are great TV deals for Cyber Monday and I need to convince my wife that it is the perfect time for us to buy the bigger tv that we always wanted for our living room.
What do you like to buy during the Cyber Monday sales?
I used to believe that healthy snacks are tasteless. I was wrong. When I got to taste Pirate's Booty Aged Cheddar, I can't believe how tasty it was. It tasted just like all the other junk foods - very tasty and addicting!

Talking about Veterans Day, I am honored that my work recognized it. It was a sweet gesture of them to send me a special note thanking for for serving our country and on top of that I was selected to be honored at a football game next week, thus we will have an out of town trip. I am one of the veterans that will walk the field before the game starts and during the halftime. Isn't that cool?
The out of town trip will also be a good get away for me and my family. We plan to spend our weekend in Atlanta, do some sight seeing and of course visit the Asian store to buy some goodies for my wife. Knowing my wife, she already found a way to save for our hotel stay. She found hotels.com coupons and she used it to book our hotel stay. You gotta love her and her ability to find deals whether it is shopping deals or travel deals. She told me that she can easily find coupons and deals at My Deals. Of course I have no idea about this site but I got curious thus I browsed it. I was surprise at how much you can save with this website. They have all the deals and discounts that you can think of.
Now, I am really looking forward and I am very excited about our upcoming trip. My oldest daughter will be joining us too. I am sure it will be a great family weekend.

They say that winter is the best time to be pruning the crepe myrtle. As winter is approaching, I decided to prune the crepe mantle in our back. This one is taller than me but when I pruned it, I cut the branches that sticking up making it a little more leveled.
Most of the crepe myrtle in our neighborhood is already pruned so I guess this is the practice around here thus I am following their lead.

Speaking of watches, for all the ladies out there, I think that giving your men a watch is a good gift. Watches can be worn during ordinary days or even during special events. You can never go wrong with a watch as a gift.
LSU is the underdog at this game. The positive thing all about this is it will be played in the Death Valley - LSU's turf.
Whatever the result will be, I will still be an LSU fan!

There are many things that you have to learn when it comes to familiarizing yourself about golf clubs or golf putters or golf drivers or golf wedges and a lot more.
In golf, there are different types of clubs:
- Woods are long-distance clubs.
- Irons are clubs with a solid, all-metal head featuring a flat angled steel face, and a shorter shaft than a wood.
- Wedges are a sub-class of irons with greater loft than the numbered irons. Golf wedges come in a variety of configurations, and are generally grouped into four categories; pitching wedges, sand wedges, gap/approach wedges and lob wedges.
- Hybrids are a cross between a wood and an iron, giving these clubs the wood's long distance and higher launch, with the iron's familiar swing.
- Putters are a special class of clubs with a loft not exceeding ten degrees, designed primarily to roll the ball along the grass.
- Chipper is a club designed to feel like a putter but with a more lofted face,

Trick or treat!
While we were at the Boo at the Zoo, there was a place for trick and treat. Of course, we have to let our daughter do the trick or treat even though she really doesn't eat a lot of candy. It was so cute of her saying "Trick or Treat" and "Thank you". She loved it! and she had one lollipop out of the many candies that she got!

A friend of mine was in the slump lately because of some marital woes. I feel sad for him and the same time, I am thankful that I am not on his shoes. He suspected that her wife has an extra marital affair. I don't want to interfere with them as I know them both but when he told me that he wants to have a paternity test of their kid, I was taken aback. Though I was not really surprise, I still think that their situation has become very complicated. I hope that the paternity test will clear some issues for both of them.
Friday, October 19, 2012
Tomorrow, expect me to be at the zoo for few hours, handing candies to all the trick and treaters.
To make this volunteer work more fun for me, I have decided to bring my family to the Boo at the Zoo. While I am doing volunteer works, they can also enjoy the attractions there while waiting for me. I think this will be fun for my little girl who will be a fairy tomorrow.

My officemate went fishing yesterday and he and his kids caught over 50 fishes in 2 hours! I was envious! How I wish I was fishing with them but Saturdays are my working day so it was impossible.
My officemate knows how much my wife loves fish so he dropped by and gave us a bunch of fish. My wife couldn't believe how much fish my officemate gave. Of course, she was so happy to have them as crappie is one of her favorite fish.

I love munching on pretzels. Whether it is thins, sticks, original or flavored ones, I just love pretzels. I eat them for snacks while at work. My workmates enjoy it when I bring a big bag of pretzels because they know that they can have a share too. So, when I received three bags of Newman's Own Organics Pretzels, I brought them at the office and we feasted on them! My supervisor also loves dark chocolates so I brought her one of the dark chocolates. I told them that all the products that I brought are organic, they can't believe it as the taste is no different than the non-organic products. This only means that Newman's Own Organics are great tasting foods that happen to be ORGANIC! Amazing, eh?
I wanted everybody else to taste the goodness of NOO so, I shared some of the Licorice to my Mom and the Fig Newtons. I shared some of the cookies to our neighbors. The rest of the products were ours to savor for the next few days.
There's only one VERDICT~~~ Delicious! Everybody love what they tried and tasted. And because these are healthier, I know what brand we will look for when we go to the grocery store to buy our snacks! You all should try Newman's Own Organics Products.
For more information about them visit:

This post brought to you by Kmart. All opinions are 100% mine.
Okay so we just bought our new home. Buying a new home means buying new things too. We have bought some of the things we needed one by one and we are working on getting new things still. My wife and I really dreamed of buying us a big tv and a nice looking entertainment center but we can't afford it right now. So, I am happy that there is a free layaway program offered by Kmart. Now, we can put the following items on layaway and bring them home after we paid them off.
We do have a tv but it is just 32". Our living room is bigger than our old place so the tv doesn't look right anymore. This 46" Led TV will be perfect and having this TV stand will be great too. My wife and I will treat these two things as our holiday gifts for each other.
Why I choose Kmart Layaway rather than Walmart, or Best Buy or Toys R Us? Simply because Kmart layaway has full range of merchandise with no minimum Item or transaction amount. It has variety of contract options and online layaway is also possible. You can also shop in one state and pick up in another store and you can pay online and pick up in store. These mentioned features cannot be found with other retailers that offer layaway.
What's more enticing is the Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway. As Kmart is prepping for the holiday season, they are launching a great giveaway. This giveaway is per store per week. Every week from 9/9/12 to 11/17/12 one winner will have a chance to win "remaining balance paid off up to $500". There is no purchase necessary to join the giveaway. Just visit their website or a participating location for the official rules. Winning this giveaway will greatly help us. So I am joining and I am crossing my fingers to be one of the winners.

My little daughter when she was 2 years old or so, will never watch or buy anything but Dora (or Diego). She only watches Nick shows. We encouraged her and introduced disney stuffs and after a while she now like to watch different shows and she has collected some Disney Stuffs too.
One day, while watching Disney, all of a sudden she just told me, "Daddy, I want Tinkerbell because I like fairies". Now, she loves us to read books about fairies and princesses.

I know a friend who does carpet installation and he has the right tools including a reliable carpet cutter. He does this line of work part time and he is good at it. Should we need to change our carpets, I am sure to ask for his estimates. But when that time comes, we will really prefer to have hard wood flooring rather than carpet.

What we are sending for the box are just basic things. This is our way of sharing what little we have. I know that what we have here is more than what they have there and the good thing is they always appreciate what little we can give.
I hope that the box will reach to its destination before Christmas.
Whenever I see a basset hound dog, I always make sure to take a picture of it because my Mom is a big fan of Basset Hounds. Her dogs are all basset hounds.
When I saw these puppies for sale, I can't help but adore them. They are so cute. I took a snap right away and showed it to my Mom. She loved them.
Some people find this time perfect for a beach getaway. The weather is not really hot yet, hot enough to enjoy the beach. I know for sure that Oceanfront vacation rentals are mostly booked for this holiday. I hope that wherever you will spend your labor day, you and your family will have a great time.
As for our family, we will be spending it at home. I had to work today so we are not going to any out of town destinations. My Mom invited us for a barbecue get together this Monday. Other than that we will just spend our day at home.

Dresses for pageants these days may just be different as how they were designed fifteen to twenty years ago. But regardless of the design, it is the confidence of the women wearing them that should be seen and not the flesh that is obviously exposed. If children are taught about that, more than how they should be taught to drool over them, then they will grow up to become men who will see inner beauty and not just the physical attribute of the women they meet as they will grow up. Why there are nasty, chauvinistic men is due to the fact that they were made to believe that women are just possessions for them to have and some trophies for them to brag about. That is also the reason why some, due to ignorance, would literally mock those women who they think are not qualified to be part of women-group in general.
These days, there are a lot of men who watch beauty pageants, and it is not because they are homosexuals who work in the field of beauty. They are the men who support women empowerment through the pageants. They are the men who are part of the pageant as sponsors for the charity related activities, and there are the men who support each candidate for the amazing personalities and strengths that they each exude. With the beauty pageants that have been going on around the world, many men learn to know what beauty really is, and what beauty can do to change the world positively.
Yes, men watch beauty pageants too!

While each bathroom repair or remodeling project calls for a different set of tools, you can minimize the hassle of having to purchase new tools by keeping the basics on hand. If you’re planning on undertaking a DIY (do-it-yourself) project in your bathroom, consider acquiring the following tools beforehand:
The most important tools to have when trying to improve or repair the functionality of your bathroom components are those used by plumbers; these would include sink and toilet augers, a faucet valve reseating tool, faucet washers and graphite packing, a plumber’s snake (toilet jack), a mastic gun, pipe benders and cutters, a plunger, abrasive wire wool for cleaning, and a volt tester (to ensure electrical safety). This hardware, along with a bit of research, should give you the ability to quickly fix most problems with your sink, tub, or toilet drains. Of course, these aren’t the only tools plumbers and renovators use, they also have an assortment of…
Screwdrivers, Wrenches, Pliers, and a Hacksaw
Aside from the various screwdrivers and wrenches that are included in typical tool sets, plumbers also use specialty tools like faucet valve seat wrenches (used to remove the valve on the faucet body) and adjustable pipe wrenches -- which provide the leverage and grip needed to maneuver and remove pipes. A multi-tip screwdriver with interchangeable pieces and a magnetic tip is also a great tool to have, but for projects that require more durable hardware you may want to opt for a collection of single-unit screwdrivers, like those found in general tool sets. You should keep a hacksaw and/or junior hacksaw in your arsenal if you think you’re going to have to saw pipes to a desired length.
Pencils, Tape, and Caulk
These are the fundamentals needed to perform a slew of functional and aesthetic improvements in your bathroom (i.e. retiling or installing a new sink or tub). A pencil will be needed to mark measurements and pipe cutting/bending points; the best kinds of pencils to use are carpenter pencils. Duct tape is used to tape off excluded areas and ensure the accuracy of your work, while Teflon tape is preferred for plumbing repairs because it adheres well to pipe surfaces and is highly durable. A high-grade adhesive caulk is needed for many plumbing and tiling jobs, so having this tucked away in your garage is not a bad idea.

This is one of the tools that I am saving money to buy. This is not much actually but we tried to save for it. Few weeks ago, we finally reached our goal and got the money to buy this. I like working in my yard, thus it is important for me to have the tools I need. When we bought this edger, we also have to buy a long extension cord. We bought a 150ft extension cord and this edger together. We spent over a hundred dollars which is what we have saved.
Now, I edged our yard every weekend and I am very pleased of its performance.

I have been on the look out for a home building company online, where I can get ample information about the trade. And I am happy that I found www.mckeehomes.com, which is a newly launched website, for energy efficient home construction. From high efficient heat pumps, low-e windows, window panes, screen doors, roof guards, patio doors, air-infiltration barriers, and proper insulation for the home. McKee is fast growing in the quality home builders industry, and is succeeding tremendously during the recession. In short, whatever you can get from their website is truly very useful and whatever products you can get from them will truly be an added investment for the house.

I am sure there are many of you who wants to learn more about home building and where to get the best deals and information about the said topic.

Do not fret, as short-term memory loss is incredibly common in women during menopause. Let's look at why this happens.
Brain and Memory
Your memory is a very complex thing to consider. It's difficult to comprehend just how much our brains can and do store. But why then, does menopause make it so hard to access this information that we naturally store on a day to day basis?
Deficits in estrogen levels will occur during the onset of menopause. This means that in beginning of menopause, your hormones will go crazy and fluctuate wildly, then eventually begin to decrease. Low levels of estrogen may lead to problems with memory, including attention loss, problems trying to find your words, mood swings and more. Don't worry, though, as all of these can be improved through simple steps and by applying certain factors into your everyday life. This includes sticking to a healthy diet, getting enough nutrition, and working out daily. If you do all of that, eventually you will begin to see gradual improvements.
Estrogen and the Mind
So why is estrogen so important when it comes to the brain? Estrogen, which is one of your primary hormones if you're female, is stored in several regions within your brain, including those regions that deal with memory. Whenever a region is activated by estrogen, processes will unfold that are all but beneficial to your brain. In other words, estrogen works to increase brain chemicals (neurotransmitters), including those that deal with mood, motor skills, and memory. In the end, you can say that estrogen is essential when it comes to the networking that takes place between nerve cells. It also stimulates their abilities to properly communicate with one another.
The common signs of estrogen include, but are not limited to:
• Fuzziness and brain fog
• Increased memory loss (typically short-term)
• Anxiety and stress
• Hot flashes and night sweats
• Mood shifts
• Vaginal dryness and discomfort
The most natural things you can do boost concentration and prevent memory lapses during menopause, is to eat right, exercise daily, get enough nutrition, find a good menopause treatment, and stay positive. Also, make sure that you get a good night's sleep, as lack of sleep (also a big symptom of menopause) can easily lead to fogginess and fatigue the following day, which is needless to say, bad for memory.
Here is a checklist of natural solutions you should engage in in order to help with possible memory lapses and other problems associated with menopause:
• Get enough sleep every night
• Workout daily
• Eat a nutritious and balanced diet daily (take supplements if needed)
• Avoid stimulants (i.e. alcohol, tobacco, etc.)
• Try to stay positive
These are all the best measures to take when you're looking to improve your memory. For professional advice about any possible medications, contact your doctor.
Sticking to positive a lifestyle, or incorporating positive lifestyle changes into your everyday routine is the most effective way to combat problems such as memory lapses.

Anyhow, the answer was always NO! So I stopped asking. Then one time, another friend of mine mentioned that a buddy of his from his old job, got to organize a workforce online, through one of the online job companies that had been hiring people to do work for those who need it. The difference about these online based teams is that, everything has to be done online, including the conduct of employee satisfaction surveys, to which, some are actually being graded, and whose tenure are determined by the same. So I thought, maybe my friend was also into this venture. So I did a little research about how to enroll an online team as a workforce. And by golly, it was quite complicated than I thought. Well, maybe if you have some human resource training plus some charisma to hold people together then you could successfully swing it. But when I saw the samples being discussed, and how much each team earns, I was amazed and shocked at the same time. I didn't know these things existed long enough to have allowed some people to enjoy the fruits of their labor, even before their retirement age.
Now, with regards to my friend's part time job, I have guessed it right. He managed to tell me after I discussed all that I have discovered through my search to him. Maybe it won't be long that we can become partners too. Well, who knows?
