January

The month of January in my mind is the perfect month because it's the time of year when you can take yourself out and walk through the icy streets, skipping your heels, whistling tunes from Italian operas, and house hunting through the winding corridors of Paris, Milan, or Toledo — all cities that have something to offer the person who is thinking seriously about the possibility of terraforming Jupiter, to say nothing of Mars; and, of course, the question that will pop first into your head is, "How can you even imagine terraforming the planet Jupiter when everyone knows that it's a gas giant and has crushing and killer gravity?" Folks, that's exactly the kind of challenge that gets my mind working overtime, and that's why my family and I will be discussing this important topic next time we go for a January stroll.

Summer Outdoor Collection


Here it is the summer and you know you want to go on vacation; in fact, you saw one of those cruise ships passing by in the Hudson and you were intrigued enough to start daydreaming about a trip to the Virgin Islands, Trinidad, or Jamaica, where Ian Fleming wrote all the James Bond novels. Well, lucky you, because Outdoor Furniture has a collection of modern contemporary furniture, European designer home office furnishings, Italian furniture, and retro designs which you can see online at Spacify. These contemporary shapes from European & Italian designers will make you feel like you're on vacation ever day.

Kawasan Waterfalls

I lived near the Kawasan Falls in Matutinao Badian, Cebu. I visited the falls several times together with my friends and family. It's not easy to get there, though, because you have to walk one mile to reach the first falls. And then you need to climb the rocky road to proceed to the second falls and also to the third falls. Then you can see the big tank of water and also the source of it. It's like a cave, but I'm scared to jump in it. I don't have any idea what's inside in the cave beside the water. I'm just curious. If you're a nature lover, I'm sure you will really love this place. You can do rappelling here too. Some of my ex-co worker did rappelling. The only disadvantage is, there's no signal of the cellphone.

Lose Weight

Most women get bigger after their pregnancy. I know it takes time to lose weight or get back to normal figures. There are plenty of pills out there, but the best advise of all is something that will really surprise you. According to Gary Taubes in Good Calories, Bad Calories the one surefire way to lose weight is to stop eating carbohydrates.

My Lollipop

My friend gave me this lollipop a couple of years ago. And I still have it. It's funny but it's true. In fact, I put it into one of my flower vases with some other candies. I don't really know how long I will be able to keep it. When I finally do get around to eating it I know that I will be violating one of the cardinal rules of nutrition because carbohydrates are killers. Any kind of candy is carbohydrate; in fact candy is the worst kind of carbohydrate, simple sugar.

Summer Vacation

One of my favorite places to spend my summer vacation is Hawaii. Because I want to see their beautiful beaches and some other tourist attractions that they have there too. And I just found out recently that they have some hotel deals that is very helpful to save money for your trip. I can't wait to go there. But not now, maybe next year when Ann will be able to walk.

They have a wide varieties of faucets, from kitchen faucets, bathroom sink faucets, laundry faucets and many more. They sell top quality and complete with full warranties.

Toast

Toast is my favorite food. You may not know it but toast has a big problem. Even though it's a favorite food of mine, I don't eat it often. The problem is that aside from the butter, which is okay, toast is mainly useless and harmful carbohydrates. Especially if it's white bread. Much better to use a whole grain bread. For more on the dangers of carbohydrates, see Gary Taubes's new book. I have written elsewhere about this and recommend it highly.

Get Rid of Pests from your House

Stop pesky pests before they stop you in your tracks, by simply going to Riddex Plus. This is a product that any exterminator worth his salt would be proud to use. My own exterminator raves about it, telling me it almost makes him obsolete with all the vermin it can eradicate. Check it out today and be free of annoying pests tomorrow.

Stapler

I just a bought a very cheap stapler yesterday. This is my favorite stationery product because it has great functionality, it looks good, and it makes a nice sound. Click. Click. Click. I cannot tell you how much I love this stapler. Do you know, I had a dream about my first stapler! Yes, it was a beautiful stapler and I dreamed it was stapling lots of pages. I'm sure there's some obscure Freudian interpretation for this, but all I know is I love staplers. If anyone is thinking of getting me a birthday gift, I would love another stapler. Any kind at all. You choose one you'll like, and I guarantee I'll like it too.

The Army Man

Do you want to know about Joseph Baniak? Well, I would love to introduce you to him. He is a leader who served tours of active duty in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq and retired from the military with the rank of Major without a blemish on his military record. He devoted 14 years of honorable service as an officer in the United States Air Force. He performed a wide range of duties including project management, procurement, mission coordinate and small group leadership. Major Baniak is a nationally recognized public speaker and delivered many keynote speeches while on active duty. He holds a top-secret security clearance. He is an expert on the culture of the Middle East, which he loves and speaks about eloquently. He has an MBA degree and is an expert in military hardware and engines. On the side, he also has time for his hobby: he loves Harley Davidson motorcycles. Check out his blog on project management.

Aladdin

Aladdin and His Magic Lamp is my favorite story for kids because it tells the tale of a boy who wished for something and the wish came true. Aladdin, as everyone knows, was a kid who had a penchant for mischief, but one day he found himself in a cave filled with treasure. Through some quick thinking, he hides to escape the thieves who own the treasure, and he escaped with his life and the magic lamp. It gives him access to a genie who fulfills his wishes. If you had three wishes what would they be? I know what mine are, but I'm not telling. At least I'm only telling the genie.

Lighting Showplace

I really need a desk lamp that can provide at least 100 watts of power — in a non-neon or non-fluorescent or non-ultraviolet (all types of light that I do not like) — type of light on my computer table because what I use right now is our floor lamp. I'm glad that I found this site about home lighting. They have everything you need for home lighting from indoor and outdoor lighting. The kind of light I like best is a tungsten lamp with a yellowish cast and a sunny look. I'm going to their site now to search for one.

New Template

Maybe you noticed recently that I keep changing my template. It's really a pain in the neck doing this. But I wasn't content with my previous one, especially my picture header. Actually, I didn't find yet what I want. Oh boy, I think I'm going to change this again later this week. It never ends. But before anything else I have to do research about air tools. Maybe there's something interesting about this. In fact, maybe it will give me an idea for my new header.

Color

Tina Trotter Beaton was a woman who lived in Amarillo, Texas in the 1950s and who used to walk to work every morning in a nicely starched hoop skirt, her hair done up in a beehive hairdo and her eyes big and bold like lollipops so that people who saw her — and everybody saw her — would stop and stare and wonder where she came from and where she was going. Little did they know. See, Tina Trotter Beaton was ahead of her time, and although she may have looked anachronistic (or like a throwback to the days of your ancestors) she was really way ahead of Tom, Dick, and Harry when it came to how to live, what to do, and especially what to wear. Her sense of color, you see, was so heightened that she had the sensibility of Timothy Leary on LSD, the perceptiveness of Claude Monet from the French Impressionist school, and the vision of Rama Krishnamurti, the great Hindu poet and seer from the 13th century. Wouldn't you love to have seen the world the way Tina Trotter Beaton did!

Great Insurance Company

The fact is that we're getting older every minute and, as futurist Ray Kurzweil so rightly points out (along with co-author Terry Grossman, M.D.) in Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever, this means we need to eat right, take the right supplements, and hope that nanotechnology picks up the momentum of research and comes through with some immortality formulas. Until that time, United American Insurance Company, founded in 1947, can give you life, health, and accident coverage. Visit United American Insurance Company today. You'll be glad you did.

The Orient Express

I have just come back from a trip to Europe where I had the pleasure of riding on the Orient Express, the luxury train from Paris to Budapest. I had been looking forward to this ride for a long time. The train is staffed by conductors who are highly trained to make your experience memorable. The vistas of mountains and towns throughout Europe were beyond words. And dining on the train is equivalent to going to a five-star restaurant or hotel. Waiters serve you, there is entertainment in the bar, and all the while you're cruising toward your final destination. The sleeper compartments, called wagon-lits, were small but tastefully appointed with all the comforts of home. I cannot wait to do it again. LOL...I'm just kidding. I never been in Europe, just my fantasy.

My Haircut

This is the haircut I got today. First I went to Arun, my Indian friend, and asked him where I should get my hair cut. He went into a deep meditation and then came out of it and told me that he saw in a vision that I should go to Henrietta van Voorst, a princess from Bulgaria now working a home for Dominican Republic girl refugees, one of whom was a talented hair stylist who did the princess's hair. When I arrived at the shop there were three girls on the floor in a stupor. I suspected opium. The princess ushered me into the salon and I was dazzled by her own hair, which was piled high in a beehive cut. The little Dominican girl, Listette, was brought in and instructed, in Spanish, to cut my hair. She was nine years old but very talented. They usually charge $40 but since I knew Arun they reduced it to just $10 as a favor to him, so I decided to give a $20 tip. I hope you like it. If you wish, I will give you the references to the princess's salon.

Oxford English Dictionary

My favorite dictionary is by far the Oxford English Dictionary. This huge dictionary, which spans 22 volumes, covers the entire history of the English language. More importantly, its definitions are the clearest and simplest to understand. Plus the dictionary gives copious examples of words being used by excellent writers from Chaucer to Shakespeare to Tom Wolfe. In this day and age when words mean so much, it's more than ever important to have a dictionary you can rely on. Of course, the Oxford English Dictionary, or O.E.D. as it's known to those who use it frequently, isn't the only dictionary I use. I also rate as number one the Merriam-Webster Unabridged and Collegiate Dictionaries. Both are online, as is the O.E.D., and well worth the price of admission.

The Drive of Lifetime

You've been a Mario Andretti fan for years, and you always wished you could race in the Indianapolis 500 — which he won in 1969 — or in any prestigious race, like the Daytona 500 (which Andretti also won, in 1967), or the Dutch Grand Prix (which he won in 1978). You've also looked at those James Bond movies, especially Goldfinger, and have always wished you could drive a car like Bond, a low-slung sporty silver Aston Martin, for example. Well it stands to reason that you're a car guy, and that you love cars and wish you could have the best car available. Which is why you're going to love used cars Wilmington NC. No other car dealership can outfit you for the kind of driving life you dream of. From humble sedans, to workhorse SUVs, to sporty secret agent type cars, this car dealership has it all, and they offer the best service and the easiest payment terms you'll find this side of the Iron Curtain. So stop dreaming about being another Andretti or James Bond, and put your dreams to the test. Stop by their Web site today and let them help you make those driving dreams come true.

Happy Birthday!

My friend Angie is celebrating her birthday today. We met yesterday for the baptism. Her husband John is the godfather of my daughter Kate. We live very far from them, that's why we can only meet if there's a special occasion. It's difficult to find a friend here, especially since everybody is quite busy with their own lives. Not just like in the Philippines where we almost always know our neighbors and the people in the town. Well, once again Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday to you my friend. I hope you have many more birthdays to come and stay in the pink of health always. Love You. This song is heartily dedicated to you. Enjoy your special day!

High Quality Labels

We've just run out of address label recently. So I tried to browse the Internet last night to look for high quality labels. And I wasn't disappointed because I found a good online site. Dymo labels has the lowest prices compared to other online stores. They only use grade-A quality products during the manufacturing process, including bright white thermal paper to make your labels stand out from the crowd. I think I'm going to place my order today. Before you know it, I'll be putting on a new face when I mail a letter.

A Long Day

It's a long day for me today because I got up early this morning to prepare the stuff that we need for the baptism. My daughter Kate is now a Christian. She got baptized today. The church is far away from where we live. We took a train and taxi to get there. Well, everything went fine according to the plan. We had a good time meeting the family and friends that who came for the baptism. By the way guys, don't forget to check out ipods.

Homer and the Odyssey

Honestly I never read a better book than Homer's Odyssey. I read it when I was five or six years old. I was a precocious kid, but still that was an advanced book even for me. Luckily I read it in a children's edition, complete with illustrations and a simplified vocabulary. The one thing I'll never forget is the story of Telemachus and Penelope, the son and wife of Ulysses. When the great warrior finally arrived home after the Trojan War after a ten-year journey, he found a house full of suitors all trying to flirt with his wife. Ulysses bolted the door to the great hall where they were eating and drinking, and taking his bow he shot arrows into all of them, killing them one by one until none was left alive. What a guy! Of course hw was helped by his son, Telemachus, during this battle.

Homer the Poet

Blind since birth, Homer the poet was a marvel and a genius of the greatest caliber, writing poetry that inspired the people of ancient Greece, the Romans, the people of the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and even modern people, so that for all intents and purposes you could say that Homer was the universal poet, the poet most known around the world, whose works outshone even the Bible in popularity with the literati and those in the know, a poet who speaks to modern tastes and university professors and adolescent boys with his visions of the Trojan War, with his descriptions of brave Ulysses, and with his depictions of the Achaeans in battle, hurling their spears through the bodies of their foes, so that the spears would slice a person in two and come out the other side and keep on traveling, maybe hitting a horse or another warrior as it exited from the first soldier it killed, and all of this is a testament to the great power of this poet, who, though blind, could paint with words better than most writers living today.

The Site Where Blogger and Advertiser Can Talk

I have just come back from a trip to Antarctica. Earlier in the week I was climbing the ice glaciers where the famed explorer Ernest Shackleton made history in the ice and snow with his attempt to reach the South Pole. It was an exciting week for me, and almost the highpoint of my life. The previous month, because I'm an inveterate explorer, I was wandering through the jungles of Burma looking for tigers. It may sound hard to believe, especially since Burma is now a hotbed of political troubles and ruled by a despotic military junta, but I enjoyed my time in Burma immensely. The previous month I had been at the Grand Canyon and had been talking with a fellow traveler who suggested that we journey together to Burma to hunt tigers. It sounded exciting, and so off I went on a new expedition that took me into the jungles and through some of the most beautiful terrain in the world. My luck is always good, and I must say that I spotted numerous big game while on my trip to Burma, including the famous Burmese man-eating tiger, which I luckily managed to avoid. While all this may sound incredible and hard to believe, you must understand one thing that will make clear to you how I have managed to accomplish all this in the short span of three months — my trip to Antarctica, to the Grand Canyon, and then to Burma. My secret is that I am an armchair traveler, and I never leave my desk; instead, I fly hither and thither through the Internet, visiting sites that I've never seen before and using Google Earth to zoom in and scan the terrain below me. In this manner I've been able to see more of the world than my grandparents or parents ever dreamed, and more than most of my contemporaries. Since I gave birth to my daughter Kate I became a full-time mother and a wife. Like other mommies out there, I love to earn some extra bucks too. Thank God, that SocialSpark exists. With it I can continue my armchair travels, only this time I actually earn income while doing so. They allow me to travel from sponsor to sponsor, from company to company, and from product to product, often introducing me to new vistas that I never knew existed. In fact if you are a mother and sitting at home wondering whether you need to watch another episode of Days of Our Lives or whether you need to clip your nails again in total boredom, listen to this news. Sign up for the SocialSpark mailing list, as soon as it is public, in order to join as soon as possible, and before you know it you, too, could be traveling the globe like me, and making money in the process.

Venus and Its Advanced Civilization

It has come to my attention, through Alvin, our house guest, that there is an advanced civilization on Venus, but they don't live on the surface of the planet. As Alvin explained in his last conversation with me, the Venusians, who resemble Earthlings in every detail, live in underground caves inside of Venus, where they have lived since 2.5 million years ago when their planet began to increase in temperature beyond that at which humanoid life could exist. The main difference between their civilization and ours is that on Venus everyone has a superior moral sense and is committed to bettering the planet. Unfortunately there are a few stray criminals and they are very intelligent, so that although there are only a few of them they pose a great deal of trouble for the mass of good Venusians. Women on Venus wear a tight, formfitting outfit, usually blue or red in color, and men wear long flowing robes over boxer-style green shorts. The colors are relevant, for men never wear blue or red, and women seldom wear green. (Painting of Venusian girl by Frank Frazetta. Notice she is wearing blue.)

Just Happy

We are so happy today because Alvin got a report from Venus. His lecture agent sent him an email to let him know that he got the message from Venus through the teleporter radio. This is very important for him because this is the way to communicate with the Venusians. And he has a chance to get more information about their civilization. Well, by the way, if you are looking to better your legal situation if you were injured, and if you don't have anyone else to help you, try calling the best law firm in the nation. Naturally we're talking about the prestigious, but still affordable, Chicago personal injury lawyers.

Tracking Device

Thieves are everywhere, you'll never know when they want to come in your house or in your company. So, anyway, if you want to know what's going on when you're not there, why don't you consider getting a hidden spy camera. This will help you with tracking thieves and other criminals. Do you know that one out of every three people is a criminal. This is getting worse day by day. I don't trust anyone anymore. I hardly trust myself. LOL...

Ice Cream

You scream for ice cream. Hmmmmm! It's yummy and delicious. I think most everybody loves ice cream, especially this very hot summer. Me, I'm craving it right now. I can't wait to get this even though my hubby is against this kind of food. He thinks that this will shorten my life because of some ingredients in it. I don't really care as long as I am happy — why I should resist it.

Corporate Advances For All

Franz Kafka would have loved the whole concept of corporate performance management because when he was living in Prague in the 1900s he was overpowered by his family situation, his father being a tyrannical monster, and his mother being a nonentity, and his three younger sisters being annoying and distracting, so that the creative Kafka could hardly think, hardly write, hardly breathe. He was in dire need of some help, some way to make progress, some method of measuring his performance. If only he had this company to help him, he would have loved it.

My Favorite Purse

My favorite purse is Coach, but I can't afford to buy one right now because I budgeted a substantial amount of our savings for home improvements, including a canon wall. I have recently begun having nightmares about southern armies storming my home, gray-uniformed soldiers carrying rifles and intent on ransacking my house and carrying off me and my children. For this reason I decided, after many arguments with my husband (who thinks I'm severely delusional), that I need to fortify my home with a genuine replica Civil War cannon wall, four feet thick, constructed of granite, and guaranteed to withstand three days of mortar shelling. I finally started to feel safe after I placed my order. The wall, which I am going to have installed at a cost of $26,720, should be completed sometime in July 2008.

Criss Angel | Believe

There is a great interest in magic these days, with people traveling to see magic shows in, of all places, Las Vegas. Actually Vegas is a big show town, almost as big as New York City. The acts that appear in Vegas are often sensational. One of the things that makes magic interesting is the fact that it is something out of the ordinary. In France in the 1880s there was a theater called the Grand Guignol which featured magic and horror, including sensational plays that scared the wits out of people. Chris Angel is in this category of performers, although he doesn’t focus so much on the horror as the magical. Criss Angel, an American magician, "is scheduled to appear in a new illusion-based Cirque du Soleil production at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas entitled Criss Angel: Believe, with an expected opening date in September 2008," according to Wikipedia. CRISS ANGEL Believe at Luxor Las Vegas promises to be quite a show. There is a Text Message contest where you could win 2 tickets to 'CRISS ANGEL Believe'. Keep in mind the information and text codes for the contest (Text 'Believe' to 22122 to win 2 tickets to 'CRISS ANGEL Believe'). Houdini was different from Criss Angel because Houdini did not use video to perform any of his tricks. The magic of Criss Angel can now be seen at the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas.

Rugs

Persian rugs are my favorite because they're so colorful. The next time I'm in a store looking at a Persian rug I may decide to photograph it and place the photo here so you can see how beautiful they are. Carl Jung would have loved Persian rugs because they look like mandalas, which he thought were the ultimate symbol of the psyche and the persona. If I were Carl Jung I would have bought a few Persian rugs for my tower, which he built onto his house in Geneva, Switzerland. More about Jung and that tower in a future post, if people are interested.

Drug Rehab Sunset Malibu

Drug addiction is very prevalent everywhere. I know that some families out there are suffering because of this. So if you are one them, maybe you have to consider to go into drug rehab at Sunset Malibu. In fact, they offer the most gentle and effective alcohol detox, drug addiction treatment and depression treatment. I know that William S. Burroughs would have loved this program, as would have Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Both of them could have used the help at many points in their career. The same goes for William Faulkner.


Big Five Personality Test

Here's a fun test you can take in 5 minutes to find out how you score on the Big Five personality traits.

Reporter is in Danger

The ABS-CBN anchor reporter, Ces OreƱa-Drilon, and two of her colleagues have been abducted by Abu Sayyaf gangsters in Sulu, Philippines last week. The ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. is trying hard to find them and bring them home. Their families, relatives and friends are now very worried about them. Anyway, here is the latest update about the case.

Police in the Philippines say a Filipina television reporter and her crew who were abducted this weekend are alive and well.

The group, kidnapped in the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao in the country’s south, are said to being treated fairly by their captors.

One reporter, Shirley Escalante, reports from Manila that the regional police director, Joel Goltiao, says television reporter Ces Drilon and her two crew members are being fed and are allowed to move around the camp where they are being held, but are escorted.

He says Ms. Drilon and her crew were traveling in Sulu province on Sunday to cover a story when they were intercepted by armed men believed to belong to the Abu Sayyaf.

Ms. Drilon and her crew were being guided by a Mindanao university professor when they were intercepted, and he has also been reported missing.

The men are said to be under Abu Sayyaf leader Albader Parad.

Police are also verifying reports that the armed group is asking for a $US223,000 ransom.

I hope and pray that they Abu Sayyaf will release them soon.

Carl Jung

The psychologist Carl Jung was known for his work with Freud in the early days of his career, but then he broke with Freud on certain issues related to the unconscious, and Jung began doing research into spiritual and mythological dimensions of the unconscious. One of his main contributions to our understanding of human psychology is his notion of the archetypes. These are quasi mythic structures supposedly inherent in the brains of all humans. The archetypes include mother, father, sun, moon, dog, death, towers, and other symbols. Many of the tarot cards are archetypes. The reason I mention Jung is that in this blog about families I'm sure there should be some discussion of dreams since many family members share their dreams. Well, archetypes can help you understand your dreams, and for that we can thank both Freud and Jung. In a future post I'll talk about Jung's decision to build a castle tower as an addition to his home on Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

Stress Relief Pills

According to an article entitled "Magnolia bark acts like antidepressant" in Chinese Medicine News, recent research published in 2008 reveals that the traditional Chinese herb magnolia bark has the potential to reduce stress and boost psychological mood in three ways. First, it has been shown to reduce the levels of corticosterone in the blood, and as many people know, corticosterone is elevated when we're under stress. Therefore the finding that magnolia bark can reduce corticosterone is exciting news. The second mechanism of action is that magnolia bark increases "serotonin levels in frontal cortex, hippocampus, striatum, hypothalamus and nucleus accumbens." Serotonin is a feel-good neurotransmitter, so increased levels in the brain would tend to elevate mood and relax an individual. Third, magnolia bark has been shown to normalize "platelet levels of adenylyl cyclase," an effect which also should boost mood. The question, then, is where can you obtain quality magnolia bark extract? I'm please to report that a new product, AbsoluteCalm, uses magnolia bark extract as its main active ingredient. It contains no harmful additives. In short, it is recommended for those who wish to relieve stress induced by work or other factors. It is also recommended for those who wish to experience some of the other benefits of magnolia bark extract, including its antitumor and immune boosting action. All in all this looks like an excellent product, and one which I would recommend over more traditional and potentially harmful pharmaceuticals, which almost always come with harmful side effects. Herbs, on the other hand, such as those used in this product, usually work in numerous ways, have multiple benefits, and are more natural and beneficial to the human biological system.

Thunderstorm

We are experiencing a thunderstorm today. I'm scared to go outside because of the lightning. It's been three days now that we didn't have good weather here in New Jersey. Sometimes, I covered my ear once in a while. Tomorrow I am taking a flight to Colorado. Just kidding. But I have been thinking about it. Colorado is my fantasy vacation state because it has skiing, hiking, and white-water rafting. I wish I can go there.

Anti-Aging Products

Are you worried about your skin? Why, honey, your skin looks lovely. But that's because you're young, young and beautiful, you know that's the reason. But the more you age, the more your skin will be beset by free radicals, X-rays, microwave radiation, cosmic rays, gamma rays, smoke, ozone, smog, and, most deleterious of all, interior telomere damage caused by factors that degrade the DNA and RNA of the epithelium. Whew! You want to counter that with some strong medicine. Well, the iderma.com have anti-aging products, such as moisturizing creams, cleansers, sunscreens, Mineral Makeup and more. And they have selected brands recommended by leading dermatologists and beauty experts, such as iS Clinical, SkinMedica, Remergent, NeoCutis. Anyway, they offer hot summer savings: if you purchase $150 or more you can save $25. So hurry, grab this opportunity today.

Happy Father's Day

Fathers Day Glitter Graphics
Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. It is the first time of my hubby to celebrate this occasion. I just gave him a little present, not an expensive one, lol. I don't want to spend my money buying other things that he doesn't like . Beside, I know what he wants, plenty of books. But I didn't buy one because I am sick and tired of seeing his books all over our place. We don't have big space to add more bookshelves. The funny thing is I couldn't stop him from buying books. Well, anyway, that's his happiness. I think he deserves a nice break today. I'm going to invite him to have a dinner tonight to his favorite restaurant. So, once again, happy father's day to my dear husband and to all the fathers around the world.

Skating and Balance

Balance is essential for many sports but probably no sport requires as much balance skill as skating (unless perhaps tightrope walking). The key point to remember when balance is involved is that balance can be enhanced through the use of certain methods other than training. Adequate sleep enhances the ability to maintain balance. So does proper nutrition. These factors are often overlooked by coaches and trainers. Independent research by this author has revealed the essential nature of both sleep and nutrition in maintaining proper balance. In other words if I don't eat right and get enough sleep, I tend to feel unbalanced.

Be Safe on the Water


Boating Education is valuable and can save lives. Every Year alcohol is directly related to a substantial number of fatal boating accidents. In fact, one third of all fatal boating accidents nationwide are alcohol related. Operating a boat while impaired is just as dangerous and just as illegal as drinking while driving a car. The legal limit for blood alcohol is .08 in both cases. The penalties are similar, too; like driving under the influence, operating a boat under the influence is a Class One misdemeanor. A sober operator should be designated. Unlike driving regulations, most states do not require boaters to take education classes. Yet educated boaters are 70 percent less likely to be involved in a boating accident. Please find out more information here:

Boating Education saves lives. That life could be yours. The following videos will help you understand why drinking and boating don't mix.


Chocolate

I love this white chocolate. It has a smooth filling and is very tasty. But I always resist eating this because I don't want to be diabetic. From what I know dark chocolate is better than white chocolate. According to researchers, dark chocolate has a lot of benefits. It is good for the heart and cardiovascular system. Dark chocolate has the highest level of flavonoids. And flavonoids are good for our body. Why? They prevent lung cancer and also help improve memory and aging parameters.

I Got Lucky

I really got lucky because I won a prize from the Maxxed Energy Pop Contest. I was wondering yesterday where the package came from and when I opened it, it was from the manager of the Maxxed Energy Pop. They sent me an iPod shuffle, T-shirt and cap. I was ecstatic to received it. I couldn't believe I won. Anyway, I would like to express my sincerely thanks to Brian T. Grove for giving me this opportunity. I started enjoying the iPod already. Honestly, this is my first time to own an Ipod. Yes, I was thinking about getting one before but then I forgot about it. (Photo of iPod Shuffle by Michael Christian.)

Heat

The heat wave continues here in the Northeast, in fact there's so much heat that I think we are going to pass out every time we go out for a walk or out to the grocery store or out to the movies; in fact, let me tell you, the only time we feel comfortable is when we're inside sitting on the futon in front of the air conditioner and drinking pink Shirley Temples and having a grand old time watching the baseball game, like millions of families all across the country, like you, perhaps, when you get cool and relaxed and don't have to go out into the blistering heat, the kind of heat that can knock you out if you're not careful.

Print That!

Let me tell you about my favorite online printing company, Vistaprint. Why are they my favorite? Simple. They offer cheap address labels, in addition to business cards that can be customized in minutes, using their easy-to-use Web site. You can select many different photos to include in your cards. And the nice thing is that they can print the photos on the cards edge to edge, so there's no messy white space around the image. This makes it all look so professional, nobody will know you got the cards for dirt cheap. They look fabulous. In fact, I like their products so much I recently ordered a bunch of cards not only for myself but also for our taxi driver. He has his own business and he was bowled over by how mice the cards looked. We included a photo of an airplane on the card, and all his clients complimented him on them. We gave him a box of 250 cards to start. He was telling me how much he liked the cards. Then within a few weeks he called me up. I was amazed! My driver never calls me. So what, I wondered, did he want. Turns out he had used up all his cards already. "How's that possible, Vinny?" I said. "Well," he said, "everyone loves these cards so much, they ask me for two or three every time I give them out. So I ran out, and now I'd like to order more." Can you believe that? Totally true story, illustrates how nice the VistaPrint product really is. Check out Vistaprint today. You can use VistaPrint for all your printing needs, just as I do.
