One of the things we enjoy most in our home is the fireplace. Whenever it gets cold, especially during weekends, we use our fireplace. We always enjoy the coziness of the fireplace.

When it is time to clean up, my daughter is always eager to help out.

Most older folks have difficulty in hearing. I guess when you aged, so is your hearing abilities. I think that in the long run, I will be a candidate for a hearing aid because sometimes, I can hardly hear. Let's just say, I guess I damaged my ear drums with the line of work that I had.

Anyway, have you thought about checkng HearingAidsElite.com for hearing aids? I heard from family and friends that this website offers hearing aids that are really sophisticated which are easy to hide. They designed affordable hearing aids that are discreet and convenient.

I have seen so many people that sells stuff online.  Sometimes, I wish I have the time to do the same.  I do have some knick knacks that can be sold but I guess in the future I will do that.

Should I decide to do some online selling, I want to as my wife to help me create web page in which I can use to sell all my stuff. I think it is important that you have your own page to post all the pictures of the things that you want to sell.

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.

One of the most enjoyable things that I do when we go for a Philippine vacation is to be able to ride a motorcycle. My brothers-in-law there always make sure that they leave their motorcycle at my disposal. I always enjoy riding the motorcycle.

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.

My daughter has been going to the library for few months now.  But this was the first time that I saw her at the library.  She goes to the library together with her Nana.

She was so surprised when I dropped by while they were at the library.  She couldn't wait to show me the whole library.
I am not a cigar smoker. I am a cigarette smoker. I only smoke one brand too. I couldn't remember the last time I smoke a cigar. I guess it is a good way that I don't smoke cigars because those things can be expensive at times. I even find cigarette expensive how much more if I smoke the cigars instead of cigarettes.

I found out that the brand tatuaje cigars are a good brand. To all those who likes to smoke cigars, have you tried this brand? If yes, tell me your experience about it.

For somebody like me who dreads the big crowd and long lines during Black Friday sales, I am glad that there is a Cyber Monday. I am not very addicted to online shopping nor store shopping. When it comes to shopping, I let my wife do that as it is her forte. She is a born shopper but a very frugal one so I am lucky in that sense.

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!

Last weekend, we watched a kid movie and instead of popcorn, we munch on Pirate's Booty.  We enjoyed munching on those delicious corn and rice puffs.  I think my daughter has a new favorite movie snacks now.

During veterans day, I always feel like I deserve to get a break.  I had my share of serving my country for 10 years.  I have been to many war zones and yet during veterans day, I couldn't even get a day off. This year will be different.  Since veterans day will fall during Sunday, I wouldn't be working.  So, I will be off to enjoy the day dedicated for veterans like me.

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.

I couldn't remember the last time that I wore a wrist watch. For me, with the line of work that I am in, it is not very practical to wear a watch as I might just ruin it. This doesn't mean though that I don't want to have a watch. I saw a carrera tag heuer watch and I think that they are nice. The design is very manly and I would love to have one of those.

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.
Tomorrow is the day that we all been waiting for. I admit, I am almost sure that LSU will lose based on the offense they have shown from the previous games this year but I am still hoping that they can perform their best and beat the Number 1 team, Alabama.

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 home products available in the market. I am sure that every home has at least a blender or something. Blending a smoothie is just a perfect thirst quencher during summer days. I am not surprise if people will invest into a quality home product like the vitamix. Vitamix products are known for its quality and durability. They remain to be the best blending equipment company in the world.

Over the years, there has been many and new products were introduced every year for household and commercial use, but I think that when it comes to blender, Vitamix is the most reliable one.

Last Halloween we decided to eat out because we were out to do trunk and treat and no time to cook for dinner.  It was my daughter's choice to eat at the restaurant that has cheese and chips.

Mi Casita Mexican restaurant is the closest Mexican restaurant to us.  That night they offer free meal for kids.  What a treat!
