Stability Ball

Our physical therapist brought us a stability ball today for our baby. He used it for Kate to develop her tummy muscles and also the back muscles. While he was doing the exercise with Kate I was thinking to myself that I might be able to use that ball too for my daily exercise. Then, I don't need to take any diet supplement to lose weight. But there is still a best weight loss pills out there that you can try if the exercise will not work for you. As for me, I'm on that stability ball three times a day now.

Top 5 Billionaires Around the World

I just did my research yesterday about the top 5 billionaires around the world. And here is the list below:
1. William Gates III
$40 BIL
2. Warren Buffett
$37 BIL
3. Carlos Slim Helu
$35 BIL
4. Lawrence Ellison
$22.5 BIL
5. Ingvar Kamprad
$22 BIL
Well, these guys are very lucky about money. But do you think they are completely happy? I'm just curious because they almost have everything. How about their love life, is it successful too? If they have both I guess their lives have no challenge at all. That's funny. But I personally subscribe to Hemingway's philosophy. When F. Scott Fitzgerald asked him what the main difference between rich people and them was, Hem said, "They have more money."

Wonderful Direct TV Deals

Since we are both baseball fans we like to watch the game on big television screens. One of our favorite restaurants has a Direct TV screen that is about six feet by four feet and the action is easy to see, especially in high definition. We like to see Alex Rodriguez hit home runs in Yankee Stadium and Derek Jeter steal bases. The Direct TV business packages are easy to install and fun to use. More than that, the NFL Sunday Ticket can help everyone have a good time. The many types of Direct TV Deals enable everyone to see the game. The Direct TV Packages make sure the fun never stops. Why settle for less? Why wait in line at the game itself when you can see the action better on television? In fact, when it comes down to the bottom line, a televised game allows for stopping the action and slow motion. Our friend Lolette likes to accompany us to the game. She says that she loves baseball too. The football fans at the bar and the baseball fans rarely mix. They have little to talk about. But they both love to watch the game on the big screen. Sometimes we bring cookies. Other times we bring organic snacks. The game is always fun to see on the big screen.

The Breaking Point

The book The Breaking Point is all about Hemingway and Dos Passos. But the best part is about how Hem meets Martha Gellhorn. What a story! And the author Stephen Koch tells it beautifully. I recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery, good writing, and good literary biography. But the romance part is the best. I never knew Hem had such strange interests in women. . . .

The Way to Increase Dental Efficiency in an Office

I have always wanted to be a dentist. My best friend's father is a dentist and she was also thinking of going into dentistry. She told me that her dad spends a fortune on the management system in his office. It causes him and his wife untold grief. They're always arguing about how much money they're losing. But then she told me that if they had what is known as dental software they could save the grief and save money in the process. Then she and her mother could have enjoyed vacations to Berlin (her favorite city) and to Paris (her second favorite). They should have used the latest and the greatest dental practice management software to organize their family dentistry business. But some people don't get the message until it's too late. The software can increase productivity and make your dental office run much better and more efficiently. Then you could take those well deserved vacations. . . .

Spring is Here

I can really smell the air of spring today. I think I have to say goodbye to the winter and hug the spring weather. Well, it's still a little chilly though but it's fine because I know that very soon it will start to get warm. Then I don't have to wear those heavy clothes. I feel relaxed now because at last I can take it easy going outside with Kate. I don't have to bring blankets or a foot muff for her. It's not stressful anymore.

Shopping

The best day to shop is when a store has a Sale event. But not only that, you can also shop online. Most shoppers today are shopping online because it is less hassle and stress free. There are a lot of low prices online too, like on the site buy.com. They have a wide variety of almost everything. I am thinking of buying a digital camera there because they have the best price compared to other stores. I'll place my order soon. I hope that I can be another Eisenstaedt.

Learning the Sanskrit Language

Here I am with my friend Sharma. I'm learning the Sanskrit language. He is also teaching me to understand the Hindu texts. There are many clasic religious works that Westerns know little about, and he is introducing me to them all.

Most Expensive Handbag


I was shocked when I saw this handbag this morning while I was browsing on my computer. This handbag is worth of $220,000. Yes, that's right. The brand name is Hermes. It is 35cm Hermès Birkin in Shiny Black Porosus Crocodile with Aftermarket Pavè Diamonds. The bag measures 35 cm/ 14" long, 28 cm/ 11" high and 18 cm or 7" deep. The handles are 5" high. Letter J and number embossed on the strap. Hermès-Paris is embossed in silver on the inside of the bag. The palladium feet on the bottom of the bag are still protected by the original plastic. This bag comes with lock, keys, clochette, a sleeper for the bag, box, and ribbon. With white gold plates with 230 Diamonds on each plate, G color, VS Clarity and approx .0147 ct each. Total 6.76 Carat Weight. What do you think of this handbag? Honestly speaking, I couldn't afford it. Even if I am a millionaire I still wouldn't buy it.

The World's Thinnest Laptop

Hundreds of my friends are at a loss for what to do when it comes to computers because they simply have never used one in their life. This is an easy thing to fix especially now that there is a contest in which you can obtain a computer called the MacBook Air. This computer comes with an optional solid state hard drive which means it has no moving parts and is like a flash drive. This to my mind is one of the best features of this advanced computer. It lacks some other features such as a firewire port and a removable media drive. It comes with just one USB port. But it is billed as the world's thinnest laptop. The details of the contest are located at Win A MacBook Air From Ben Behrouzi. It is relatively easy to enter the contest. You simply send the contest holder a simple message. The message can be one sentence in length. The winner will be announced this month.

Dry Hands

My hands are very dry these days. I knew the cause of this, it's because I keep washing dishes and using the hot water. We have a dishwasher machine but we never try to use it. We think that doing manual washing is more faster than loading the dishes into the dishwater. And we're just two persons using the dishes. Every time we eat, we wash our own dishes. I put lotion on my hands after washing but it seems it didn't work. I am now thinking about using the dishwasher machine for the first time. Then I can avoid having dry hands. Let see if this works. I will update you guys soon. Anyway, I'm now thinking of taking diet pills to loose my weight. But before I do that I have to do more research about what's the best diet products.

Plantain Banana

Since I love to eat plantain banana, I bought four pieces last night and cooked it today. First, I was very confused how to cook it. I had two options playing on my mind: first, frying; or second, simply boiling them. It took me an hour to come up with my decision. I decided to boil them and mix with coconut and sugar. I'm telling you that it tasted great. Kate liked it too.

Mega Storm

Hubby had off yesterday because of the mega storm that hit here in the Northeast. Most of the schools are closed. Plenty of snow was pouring onto the ground. In fact, we went to the park to enjoy the scenery but it was very cold or freezing. I put Kate on top of the snow with a little snowman beside her. She enjoys so much playing with the snow. We just stayed a short time because Kate was starting to cry. Her hands started to freeze. So we immediately ran back home and warmed her. We didn't think that she would so easily get cold because she is a healthy baby. Sometimes we talk about the Solo Slim pills to help her to lose weight. Just kidding.
