On Christmas Day

Its been almost a month since my last post here. Just done eating our Christmas dinner. I tried experimenting my mothers ham recipe, my favorite recipe of hers which I am still trying to experiment and hopefully master and someday will somehow turn out just as good as hers.

We always wanted to watch Alvin And The Chipmuncks movie since it came out on dvd or on the big screen, but we didnt get the chance to buy it. Fortunately, the movie was played on HBO channel today, so we couldnt miss it. It was nice funny movie, a wholesome movie great for both adults and kids.

Just wanna great everyone Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too!

Black Friday Aftermath

We didnt wake up very early and joined the crowd rush trying to fall inline infront of the shopping malls during Black Friday, yesterday, to get awesome deals on things. Years ago, I had my experience of falling inline infront of a department store so that we could get a new telivision set at a really awesome deal. We did get the TV that year, but it was a long cold waiting time of more than an hour, waiting outside in a cold freezing winter day. But it was a memorable experience for me, a once a year shopping crave for everyone as early as four (4) in the morning!

This year, we checked most of the stores printed ads for Black Friday as well as the stores websites to check for special discounted of items that we could really need and want to get this year. With how the economy is, a lot of people were watching how much they spend this Black Friday. But for things that we could really use, it was the best time to buy since we could definitely save tons of money by getting them at highly discounted prices.

One of the most favorite grab item by a lot of people is a new digital TV, specially that analog signal for tv will be considered obsolete next year and all networks will be feeding digital signal by then.

Gas Prices Are Falling Down

A lot of times when prices go up, its very unlikely to see them go back down. But these days, gas prices seem to be on the right track when it comes to the end consumers. Yesterday, we went to a shopping center (here in northern CA) and their gas price was $2.25 per gallon, not bad considering it was more than $3.00 few months ago. When we went again to the shopping center today, we noticed that gas price went down further, its $2.15 per gallon there. Cant wait to see it in the line of one (1) again.

Online Reviews Are Helpful

My husband has a toothache and he needs a dentist around the area that can take care of his toothache. Since we are currently in a new place at this moment and a little far from the previous dentist that we used to go to, we have to find a new one nearby. But finding a new great dentist is not easy. It is difficult to just browse around the yellow pages or the newspaper and pinpoint the first dental ads that comes along. Not knowing a dental office reputation and performance and just blindly walking in to their office is like reserving a hotel that you never heard of before!

Instead of browsing through the newspapers or the yellowbook for a local dentist ads, I searched online for a local dentist. The great thing about some online listings is that there are honest reviews and feedbacks from customers and patients, which is very helpful in deciding which dentist have great and reliable reputations. It is a good thing to know beforehand what is going on with their services and performances before walking in and trusting someone with your health and dental care.

So if you have a dentist in your area, try to share your honest reviews and feedbacks online regarding your visits in that particular dental office because you may never know who you will be able to help in the other end of the web!

Decorate Your Room With Modern Furniture

Growing up, when I was still living with my parents and siblings, we all loved to re-arrange our furniture and accessories in our living room a lot. Our living room was quite dynamic because as opportunities arised, we sometimes took the time to rearrange everything there as well as adding some new modern furniture pieces.

A blank room regardless of its size is like a blank canvas waiting for your creativity to make it a usable and livable space for you and your family. Even if you are not really a professional interior designer, you can still make your room look good, maybe just as good as the ones done by the professionals. Sometimes, all we really need is having the access to the right places that provides the right items and tools that we need to make the magic happen.

Historic Election Day In America

Today, November 4, 2008, is a very important day here in the United States of America because it is the Presidential Election Day. Its been busy months for presidential candidates like John McCain and Barack Obama trying to win each of our votes. With this challenging and rough economic times, we the people, cannot afford to waste our votes or just take it for granted by voting without thinking. With our right to vote, today is definitely a great time to exercise this right and let our voices be heard.

I am not here to campaign and take side for any of the candidate, but I would like to encourage everyone to vote wisely. Vote for someone whom you know and feel is most capable for the job, can handle the task at hand, can contribute good things to the society, and can lead each one of us to a better life (like less taxes, less expenses, less crime, more benefits, more peace and safety, more overall success). Vote wisely and God Bless to all of us!

Going In The Right Direction

For the past few days, the gas prices has been going down and down and down, which is definitely going in the right direction as far as the end consumers is concerned. Gas prices going down day by day, back to as low as $2.57 per gallon the other day, or a dollar less per gallon compare to a month ago, is a great news specially that the news regarding the economy is not as good these days. But we all deserve a break, a little bit of something good that benefits the many, lower gas prices, is a good thing. I heard in the radio today that there is still a possibility that it may lower a little more, but then goes back up again due to cut down in the oil production?!

New Episodes Of Little People Big World Finally

We been wondering what ever happen to the Rolloffs in Oregon the past few months that theres been no new episodes of their hit reality show, Little People Big World. We have been following their show for awhile, almost since the first day that their first episode first showned on TLC.

Last week, my hubby told me that he saw an ad on tv about the show, and a new episode of their show got aired last Monday finally. I like their new front patio and garage makeover, although they didnt show it very well on tv, just a glimpse and parts of the project. At the end of the last episode last year, the Rolloffs family where facing chaos and challenges with their major garage renovation, the family living in a construction area.

In the new episodes that are coming, it seems that their family have bigger tasks to tackle nowadays. Matt went to the Middle East and meet a family there that have three (3) dwarf kids. Matt went face to face with the danger in the middle of the war zone, a glimpse of what our brothers and sisters in the army have to go through when they are stationed there.

Their show, Little People Big World, is making waves specially here in the US, and it is good to know that they are reaching out for those in need and taking actions to actually help people!

Skunk Somewhere Near

It is definitely not pleasant to wake up early in the morning and realized that a skunk is hiding nearby or passing by your place. My hubby and I had to wake up early with this nightmare this morning. We smelled a skunk. We were inside the house, but we could sensed that there was a skunk somewhere outside, near the house or passing. We have all the under the floor vents properly screened, so we are quite confident that the skunk we smelled was not under our home, thank goodness.

No idea what a skunk is? Chances are you never encountered one, or smelled one, you are lucky. If you are in the United States, ask someone you know about a skunk, and he/she can probably share her/his personal story about his/her encounter with this particular animal with an undesirebable odor.

Best Deals On Off Season Items

We have a wooden bench in our backyard that we bought at Lowes few months ago. It is a great quality bench with classic decorative iron components in it. We been using it all summer but it was hard to have a soda or juice in our hand while seating in the bench because we had no table nearby to place it.

Today, we went to Sears, and was checking out some of their clearance section. I immediately spotted their small outdoor glass table being marked down. I thought it was perfect height and size that will match perfectly with our wooden bench. Although the finished is not exactly identical, they were closed enough and both have light-color finished material, so still work really good together.

It feels great to be seating in our wooden bench with a nice table to use with it. They work really good together, both in purpose and function.

Keep Your Auto AC Running Great And Beat The Heat

To live here in northern california, it is almost expected to get hot weather temperatures on a daily basis specially during the summer. Weather temperature gets really hot, uncomfortable and unbearable when it is more than 100 degrees fahrenheit, it is normal here but something that it is hard to get used to. It is hard to get comfortable in a hot weather specially inside the car, but having the air conditioning on definitely helps a lot!

Wherever you are, there is bound to be hot weather, sometimes extremely hot. Dont get caught in the middle of hot summer day with a broken air conditioner! Make sure that your car AC is up and running, and all auto ac parts are functioning properly. DiscountACParts.com carries products like air conditioning compressor that you can use to fix or update your car air conditioning. Their website conveniently offers AC compressors for all auto models. The best way to beat the heat during your travels is being equipped with a fully working auto AC.

The Outdoor Fireplace That Got Away

We went to Sears yesterday to buy a plier, when we noticed that they were clearancing off their home and garden seasonal items. There were outdoor furniture set, lounges, outdoor umbrella, barbeque grill, and more. But we noticed that there was an outdoor gas fireplace that was marked down as well. The outdoor gas fireplace was very nice, so elegant, originally priced at $1000+, they were closing it out for less than $300+ yesterday, thats $700+ off! It was tempting, but we dont have a budget for it, really. So we just checked it out, admired it, hoped we can have it in our outdoor patio...

Today, we went to Sears again, and found ourselves being dragged in the home and garden department again, getting curious if the outdoor fireplace has been further marked down. Just like that, the outdoor fireplace was gone, it is no longer on their clearance section. So, we talked to one of the personel of the store about it, and she explained that it was sold yesterday, before the day was over, and she further told us that it was priced so slow, it was practically a steal-deal, almost a give-away. Less than $300 sale price for a $1000+ item is a great marked down for sure, but Im thinking to myself that spending $300 is not really a give-away on the part of the buyer, hehe.

Although, we dont have the budget for it, we always wanted an outdoor fireplace like it someday, but always classic outdoor fireplaces are quite expensive. But seeing the same item at a fraction of the price of what it is normally sold for, it was definitely an outdoor fireplace that got away.

Maternity Fashion And Style

Are you pregnant? Chances are, you need to update your wardrobe that you can use for the next nine months during your are pregnancy and have a growing human being inside you. Ordinary clothes that you own are normally not fit for your changing form and body shape during pregnancy. That is why it is important to wear maternity clothes that are specifically design for pregnant women, inorder to accomodate your growing belly without putting any pressure and stress on it. Most tops and dresses that you own for daily normal wears are usually not flexible enough to wear during pregnancy. The good news is, you dont need to compromise fashion and style by wearing maternity clothing because there are several trendy maternity clothes to choose from nowadays.

Women are accustomed to wearing jeans on a daily basis. When you are pregnant, it does not mean that you can no longer wear jeans and pants. Be sure to check out Paige maternity jeans and Juicy maternity jeans for great options on jeans and pants that are suitable to wear during your pregnancy. It is not advisable to wear your normal jeans during pregnancy because they are usually not design to conform with a pregnant woman belly shape and everyday style jeans may cause discomfort and uneasiness because the fabric materials are not flexible enough to work with your growing belly.

Mantis In Our Front Yard

My hubby called me the other day to grab my camera quickly because he wanted me to take a picture of something in the front yard. I grabbed the camera and hurried back to the front of the house, where my hubby was. He then pointed me the praying Mantis in our siding. So I set the camera to macro mode and started taking some photos of the mantis. Honestly, I never seen a praying Mantis until the other day, so to me it was very interesting to witness such a creature. It was a little bit scary because the mantis didnt make a single move, it just stared back at me and I have no idea how safe or dangerous a mantis is, so I was a little guarded but I still managed to take a close up pictures of the insect despite uncertainties and unkown mantis behaviour. It was definitely an interesting experience of the day!

If I have the chance, I will post some photos of the mantis here!

There are not a lot of available experts in collision repairers, but if you are ever in a situation that you need one, be sure to check out CollisionRepairExperts.com to find auto body shop available in areas near you.

Mixed Emotion With The Rain

For the first time for a long long time here in northern CA (where I am at), we are finally hearing in the NEWS to expect some rain late this week or this coming weekends! It is a mixed emotion for us though because we love the rain, we need the rain so badly here in CA, but at this point, our family is NOT ready for the rain to fall very very soon yet because we removed the rain gutter of our house last summer and planned to replace it before winter, of course. But time flies so fast, before we know it rainy season is already here and our house is not fully ready for it! We are extremely busy doing some works outside to finish some of the unfinish works that we started outside in the previous months that will be a problem during rainy days, which is coming up fast and furious. We only have few days left, and we need to get things ready and done, and get the house ready for the rainy days. grr

Feeling The Fall Season

Yesterday, September 22, is officially the first day of fall here in the United States. In the NEWS yesterday, we saw the first photo of fall colors in the trees transforming into beautiful bright colors taken somewhere in the north east United States. I truly like the beautiful and stunning transformations of plants during the fall season. I remember when we were travelling towards Lake Tahoe during the fall season one time, we were lucky enough to witness a lot of Aspen Trees with its magnificient bright yellow colors and white barks. In our own yard, we have a Japanese Maple tree that turns into bright deep red during fall. Although, not all trees have fall color changes, there are places all over the states that are known to have best spots to be able to witness these great display of nature. Inorder to see the fall colors, timing is everything, see it before the leaves die down and fall. It is best to do some research which areas have fall colors at what week or month of the year. The trick is, do your research in advance before travelling hundreds of miles, so you wont get disappointed when you arrive there too late, and the trees are already bald. Even if you dont have the budget to fly somewhere to see huge display of fall colors, local areas like shopping malls, parks, city streets, etc have planted trees that some of them changes during fall. Sometimes all you need to do is drive around town and you seeing fall colors may come and greet you!

Bedroom Furniture Choices

Few years ago, we had minor redesigning of our master bedroom. We just threw fresh paint in the walls and had different paint color in one wall as an accent wall. But we ended up just reusing the existing mismatch furniture we had at that time, that is why our bedroom makeover didnt came out so great because the furniture we used were either too small and/or too big for the bedroom, and the stained of the wood and the type of wood were different from each other.

At ERoomService.com they have several bedroom furniture for sale in different styles. I personally like the contemporary bedroom furniture because of its minimalist design and clean lines and it is easier to find fabric for curtains, sheets, and pillows that will go well with it. I am a great fan of modern bedroom furniture as well because most modern pieces are very rich in style and function. A lot of times, modern furniture goes very well with other modern gadgets and appliances that we already own, so that everything will flow smoothly in a room, complimenting each other rather than looking mismatch.

Wrong Turn

It was very funny because we were on a road trying to get home. In one of our usual routes, we normally use the Lowes store sign in the curb as our landmark to turn towards home. Today, we turned too early, two blocks too early, because a Lowes truck with a huge Lowes logo printed in the side of the vehicle was situated in one corner, two blocks before the landmark . Unknowingly, we ended up turning in the road right where the truck was, thinking it was the store sign in the curb...hehe... But in a matter of minutes, we managed to find our way back to the right road again, whew.

Hurricane Ike Aftermath

We were following the weather NEWS both at The Weather Channel and CNN as both channels closely monitored hurricane Ike travelling thru from the atlantic ocean to the gulf sea. After days of watching the daily updates of hurricane Ike as it cruised thru other different countries in the carribean, hurricane Ike finally made landfall in the coast of Texas early dawn last Saturday. It was widely huge storm and the impact that it did in places where it hit was devastating as it caused a lot of damage to both lands and properties, as well as the lives of many people. Many of us may not be in the gulf coast but the NEWS also affects other people, financially and emotionally as well. In the news, they were talking about some oil refinery in the gulf coast that were shut down temporarily as hurricane Ike passed by, and the non-operation could result in higher gas prices nationwide. That was why we hurridly drove to the gas station that very Saturday morning and filled up the gas at $3.59 per gallon price before it could possibly rise up around $4.00 to $5.00 per gallon again, just like when hurricane Katrina hit the coast of New Orleans three years ago. The price didnt go up badly like we thought, so that is great for a change.

Although, hurricane Ike finally left Texas, he left behind devastation and problems in places where it hit. So if you have the means to help those who were deeply affected by the storm, extending your help and support will surely be valuable and will go a long way.

Not Ready For Changing Season

Here in California, we still have obvious summer days, with triple digits temperature in the weather forecast three (3) days in a row, today, tommorrow and the day after that! I am definitely not looking forward to it because its gonna be too hot to stay out and with the few number of days left for this summer season, I would like more comfortable sunny days to stay outdoors and not have to worry about the rainy days yet. We just bought a new gas barbeque and some outdoor furniture that we bought at cheaper prices because they had been clearance off as ending season sales. And I wish to enjoy them a little bit more before weather gets cold and wet outside. Not a really a good time to complain by having triple digit temperature days because while watching the The Weather Channel and some other telivision NEWS, other parts of the US are having rain and wind these past couple of days. Hurricane Gustav just passed the mid gulf coast the other day that led to more or less two million people to evacuate out of Louisiana, after experiencing a traggic hurricane Katrina three (3) years ago. And this time, hurricane Ike and Hannah are predicted to be going towards the United States as well, particularly in the east coast somewhere around South and/or North Carolinas. Hopefully, as it travel through the atlantic ocean, the hurricane will weaken.

Been Watching The 2008 Summer Olympic Games In Beijing

We been following the Summer Olympics Games on telivision as it unfolded on a daily basis in Beijing China. Some of our favorite olympic competitions that we regularly watched were the gymnastic competition, swimming competition, and beach volleyball games. It was exciting to see Michael Phelps won and took home back to the United States a world record breaking eight (8) Gold Medals in a single Olympic! And witnessed Johnson grabbed a Gold Medal on her last gymnastic performace, definitely a great way to end the game! And adrenalin rush building up as Dalhausser and Rogers of USA team beat the Brazilian team in the men's volleyball competition on the third set of the game. Overall, it was great watching the summer olympics this year, its been four years since we watched it on tv as it happened in Greece.

Summer Cool Down Today

We been experiencing extreme weather temperature for the past few weeks this summertime. So we have our airconditioning set to an automatic timer to turn on at around 78 degrees fehrenheit to keep the house cooler all day. But today is a different story, for a summer time, the temperature is definitely cooler outside, more or less 90 degrees, so we were able to keep the windows open and grab some fresh breeze for a change. Hopefully there are more cooler days like it this summer.

Adventurous With Dining In America

I like dining out, although we dont do it all the time because it is quite costly to do it on a daily basis. But most of us enjoy and very passionate about great foods and great restaurants. Most of us have our favorite foods and favorite restaurants, but it is always great to explore new restaurants and taste new menus as well, to know what else is out there and probably discover new favorites!

Chicken Meal The Old Fashion Way

When it comes to cooking chicken meats, I always like the traditional way of cooking it, just fry it! Occasionally, i prepare chicken meats with bread crumbs and egg coating, sometimes with a brushed of mayonaise, other times with barbeque sauce in it, and then just baked them at 400 degrees fahrenheit for around an hour. But normally, when I dont want to go through all the hassle of any other ingredients, I usually just fry the chicken with sprinkle of salt. I find it best just to fry the chicken with salt because the natural taste of the chicken prevails, instead of any other flavorings. I got chicken in my brain right now, i am frying one for dinner :-)

Smoke Is In The Air

Waking up this morning was the worst yet, the air quality and visibility outside is terrible! By just a quick opening of the door, I could smell the smoke already. Its been hard trying to get out outdoors lately dealing with the thick smoke developing all over the place due to all the acreage of fires happening in different parts of California. And the three digit temperature is definitely not helping the whole situation. This afternoon, our car digital thermometer read 113 degrees fahrenheit for outside, thats hot. With how thick the smoke has become, I was able to take a snap shot of the sun this afternoon in a glowing orange color, it is stunning but this effect usually happens when there is a lot of smoke in the air, which is totally unhealthy.

Triple Digit Temperatures

For many people, comfortable outdoor temperature range around 70-89 degrees fahrenheit. When temperatures hit the triple digits, that is when it is definitely hot and beyond the comfort zone for a lot of us. When it get that hot, it is best to just stay indoors, if you are able to maintain a comfortable room temperature inside. Best ways to cool off your place indoors is by using running the central air, an aircon or an electric fan. House shaded with huge trees seems to be a lot cooler and will help minimize the use of any cooling unit. In some cities, there are designated cooling areas that you can cool off and take cover from the burning sun. If you need to be outdoors in a hot temperature, it helps if you stay in the shaded areas, away from the direct sun, and dont stay outdoor for long period of hours. Some quick cooling activities popular by many people is taking a quick cool shower, or take a quick swim in a cool pool.

Our Fourth Of July Celebration

We usually go to fireworks show in the park for the Independence Day (July 4) celebration. But this year, we decided to just check out awesome deals at some stores like Home Depot, Lowes, and Best Buy. Most stores have 10-20 percent discount in most items during Fourth Of July. Although, we didnt buy a lot, nor take advantage of the huge savings we could get, we had a great time window shopping! Instead of going to the park for the firework show in the evening, we decided to just stay home and not travel. Around 8 pm, we headed outside with few snack and drinks in our hands, then checkout the fireworks from the neighbors! To our amazement, we seen a lot of them, mostly fountain or sparkly stuff because those are probably the legal ones to lit in our area...By just staying in our own streets, it was cool that we had the chance to enjoy plenty of great display of fireworks. Most of our neighbors were outside, in the streets, partying, and lighting fireworks. With that, who needs to travel far away to see one? Definitely a great way to save travel gas this year!

Hope you had great Fourth Of July celebration!

Dealing With Bad Air Quality

When there is a lot of fire burning in your area, the air quality can be dangerously unhealthy for you and your family to inhale. Many places monitor the air quality and share such information to the public, mostly by NEWS report, inorder to alert everyone of any danger zone air quality. One of the most common cause that affects air quality is when there is fire in your area causing smoke to fill the air. Depending on the gust and direction of the wind, even if your area dont have any fire, the wind may still carry the smoke from other areas. One perfect indication of an alarming amount of smoke in the air is when it gets so hazy and/or when you can actually smell the smoke. If you can smell it, you can breath it, and it can get it into your lungs. Being concern with dangerous level of smoke or bad air quality should not be only for people with asthma or individuals with breathing problems. Even if you are healthy and have no breathing problems or similar illness, inhaling smoke is still unhealthy and could possibly lead to some breathing or lung problem in the near future if you continue to ignore bad air quality. So when the air quality outdoor is too dangerous to be outside, it is better just to stay indoor, close all doors and windows, and minimize your outdoor activities for the meantime, until it is safe to stay outside.

Watching The Stars In Circus

One of new tv show we been watching is the Celebrity Circus, where popular celebrities/stars like Christopher Knight of the The Brady Bunch perform dangerous and professional circus moves infront of a live stage audience. Celebrity Circus is a competition between the participating stars which allows the tv audience to vote for their favorites which will be the determining factor if who will stays and who will go. With time constrainst and challenging circus moves, each of the participating celebrity performs live on stage and on tv his/her new learned skills, just like the professional circus gurus do it! It is exhilarating and sometimes make the audience speechless to see each of the star perform live since most of the circus moves needs intense training and concetration like playing with fire, walking on a thin wire high above the ground, circling in a German Wheel, etc. But it is amazing that most of the stars perform their moves really good as if they have years of training. Its a cool show.

Tommorrow Is Officially Summer

Its been weeks since the weather here in west coast feels like summer already, but as far as calendar days, the summer season (here in the US) will officially starts tommorrow, June 21.

Many family are perflexed what to do this summer time. With the soaring gas prices, a road trip is definitely the last thing in anyones mine right now. A beach getaway is definitely a favorite thing to do on a summer day for many of us, but if a person live far away from the ocean, then going to the beach might turnout to be a costly one. As a alternative for cooling down this summer days, an easy-to-install swimming pool that you can buy around $50 to $300, depending on the size and quality of the pool, would be a perfect alternative to keep cool this hot summer day.

If you have toddlers and kids in the family, make sure that you take the extra precautions and safety measures to keep them safe and off the pool unattended. Fun is great, but make safety the first priority.

Soaring Gas Prices

Nowadays, gas prices is definitely one of the talk of the century. Wherever you go, you hear people complaining about the non-stop increase on a daily basis of gas prices and along comes with the soaring gas prices is the prices of basic commodoties including foods and shelter because these items are directly and/or indirectly dependent and affected by the gas prices like transportation, deliveries, etc.

The other day, it was radical how we checked out the gas price at Costco, in the entrance of their store, which said $4.18 per gallon, which was cheaper compare to other gasoline stations, really. Few minutes after, when we came out of the store, the gas price in front was changed quickly to $4.21 per gallon. All we could really utter was wooo, because in just a matter of minutes it changed from $4.18 to $4.21 per gallon. But then when we drove off the store and passed by other gasoline stations, they have far worst prices, $4.30++

When I opened my Internet Explorer browser, the article fronting the Yahoo page this morning is titled Death Of SUV, which talked about how this machines eats so much gas that they are becoming unpopular and now being parked and unused.

Just wondering, what car are you driving, compact hybrid or SUV?

French Door Fridges

Many family spend plenty of their time in the kitchen, that is why it is quite fitting for most of us to have the appliances like refrigerator and oven that we really like that will work best for our needs. I personally like the french door fridges because not only do they look high-end, they are also very functional. The great thing about french door refrigerators is they offer the option to open a single door or both doors, depending on what we need in the refrigerator at that time. It is so much easier to place or remove huge trays and bowls from the refrigerator when we can open the french door wide open. And if we are only grabbing a little item from the fridge, being able to open only one side of the door makes it more convenient as well as energy efficient because there is less cold energy that can escape.

Hidden Behind The Blooming Flowers

We recently check out a beautiful botanical garden with amazing collections of colorful plants and flowers. But only after few minutes of being there, we realized that there were several mosquitoes all over the beautiful area.

Most mosquitoes frequent in dumped and wet places, and since most garden are watered and can collect standing water in some parts of the plants and yard, it is common for mosquitoes to hang out in many garden areas. It is therefore necessary for us to protect ourselves from being bitten by mosquitoes because some mosquitoes may be infected and they can be carrier of diseases like west nile virus that they got from birds that mosquitoes can possibly transmit to humans.

So if you plan to stay outdoors to enjoy your flower garden or simply want to have a relaxing nap in your outdoor hammack, applying mosquitoes repellant will definitely make you less attractive to mosquitoes and better chances of keeping mosquitoes off you.

To all my fellow bloggers, sorry for my days absence here at blogosphere, I had to do some running around and also went out a little bit and enjoy the sunny outdoors, now that winter is over. I will be reviewing the messages in the tagboard as well, starting messages way back last April.

Greetings To All Mothers Out There

Today is Mothers Day here in the USA and probably in other parts of the world as well. Although, it is always great to appreciate our unselfish and caring mothers on a daily basis, it is extremely important as well that we celebrate Mothers Day inorder to give them a special day worth celebrating and let them know that we appreciate their motherhood that much and all the things that they have done for us, all the sacrifices, effort and time that they so willingly share with us.

My mother passed away few years ago, and it is not the same to live in this world without having the chance to see or talk to my mother anymore, there is that part in me that will always be missing because she is no longer alive and it is a terrible feeling. But her presence, love, and kindness will always be remembered and cherished in my heart and in my soul. Same goes with my grandmother who was very close to my heart...

Let your mother know that you love and appreciate them. Dont let this opportunity to let them know that you love and appreciate your mother and grandmother pass you by. Happy Mothers Day to all mothers out there!

Thank Goodness For Washing Machines

I grow up as a kid not using the washing machine for our laundry. We had a washer and dryer but we only occassionally used it for bed sheets and other super heavy fabrics like curtains and sofa covers. But for our everyday clothes, everything was done by hand, that is why it was a heaven sent that every weekend we have a helper for doing the laundry, also known as Labandera, to help us with the loads of clothes to wash. Now that I am married, I have to do the washing for the family. Good thing that washing machines are essential in most household nowadays, that way i dont have to rub every single clothes I wear trying to clean it. I normally dont run the washing machine on a daily basis. In fact, I only do the laundry once a week, usually during the weekends. To save electricity, I always try to accumulate like colors clothings before I run them all at once in the washing machine, that way I dont waste water, electricity, soaps, and time trying to clean few clothes, when I can use almost the same amount for more clothes.

Factory Direct Technical Furniture

Most people spend a lot of time working, that is why getting comfortable and having the right tools, equipments, and furniture at job site is essential inorder to help us perform our tasks and functions better and easier. I do a lot of work in the computer that is why it is important for me that the chair i use supports my back properly and my feet touches the floor so that I can relax my leg muscle at anytime. While browsing at Formaspace website, they sells factory direct office furniture including tables and chairs, workbench, storage units like cabinets, and more. Formaspace have wide variety of products ideal for all types of work environment including laboratories, drafting area, computer lab, and other industrial spaces or offices.

Airline Tickets Cancelled

It is extremely frustrating to book an airline tickets early inorder to get a great deal and save only to find out later that the reserved airline tickets are cancelled. Many people here in the US have to go through this hassle nowadays, including us with our interstate flights. Few months ago, we reserved interstate plane tickets for this summer, unfortunately, the airline company discontinued their service and cancelled our flight and no complimentary replacement flight were offered so we had no choice but fight on getting our a refund.

If you have scheduled flights that were previously reserved, it would be best to check your email or airline company to make sure that your flight is still good to go. When our flight was cancelled, we didnt get any phone call at all, we only received one email to informed us about the cancellation, good thing that the email didnt end up in the spam sectioned being filtered as spam. The one email was our only way of knowing that our flight got cancelled. It is therefore advisable that you re-affirm your flight schedule days before the actual flight to make sure that you will not ended up in the airport ready to fly, but no airplane!

In todays world, most of us if not all of us are already connected online, which means that each individual that is online is also a potential buyer or customer, if you happen to have your own online store.

Melting Milk Chocolate

I am currently blogging, and my hubby just handed me a Hershey Milk Chocolate with Almonds to eat :-P We grabbed a pack of chocolate the other day in the grocery store. When we were eating the chocolate inside the car, we could see how the chocolate was melting so quickly right before our eyes, thats how hot it got here already and its not even summer yet. Its only like yesterday that we had really freezing temperatures, but these days, it gets really hot pretty quickly, specially inside the car, that is why we take every opportunity to take a shaded parking when available, even when its only a speck of shade, every bit of shade helps.

Military Wears And Gears

One of my favorite clothes pattern is green camouflauge because it is great for all around casual wear. I own some long pants, short pants, and some shirts in camo that I like to wear in casual or outdoor activities. I like wearing camo prints because I dont have to worry about my attire getting dirty and I have the opportunity to focus more on the fun activity at hand. And I like the fact that most military clothes are designed sturdy inorder to withstand rough and tough situation, so it is definitely more lasting and great for outdoor activities.

If you are thinking of buying military clothes yourself to use either for your military career or for an outdoor activites, one great online store that offers several military wears and gears is LA Police Gear. They have several types of products including hi-tech gears,
BDU pants etc which are ideal for both military personnels and outdoor enthusiasts.

The Milky Decision

Later today I had a quick run to the supermarket to get a gallon of milk because I just remembered that when I checked the ref last night, we were out of milk. So I had to stop by at the grocery quick to get a gallon of milk. But when I scanned the store refrigerator, i noticed that a gallon of milk is $4.49 while if I buy 2 gallons of milk at the same time, I would get huge discount because it will only cost $5.49 for two, it is like buying the other gallon for only $1.00. But at the same time, I know that I can only fit one gallon of milk in our ref tonight because it is fully loaded with all kind of foods and drinks. I stared at the store ref pondering about which way to go, buy a gallon or two gallons...It sucks when grocery stores make things so difficult huh. Definitely out of proportion to price a gallon for $4.49 and the additional gallon, if you buy two, for only $1.00 for the next gallon. Why not make it simple and spread the savings to everyone, give savings regarless if we buy a gallon, or two or three gallons of milk..

Overall, its not just the price of milk that everyone nowadays are concern of. It is hard to believe that the prices of basic commodoties these days are outrageously high. Here in northern CA, the average price of gas per gallon today is $3.75, shocks, I just hope that we wont be hearing in the news anytime soon about some companies having record breaking profits. I dont exactly know how far you can go with a gallon of gas, if you are using an SUV, probably 7-10 miles per gallon? If only someone can can up with water to power our cars nowadays, wouldnt that be something really cool and neat.

Multi-tasking

Ladies are best known for their ability to multi-task and they are good at it. I, for one, usually find myself doing so many things all at once. For the past few hours I been extremely busy throwing dirty clothes in the laundry, while cooking dinner for us, at the same time went through the mountful of junk mails coming delivered in our mailbox on a daily basis, and also browse trough some of the magazines that I subscribed. I am quite positive that multi-tasking like this is not a stranger to many ladies out there! We are known to multi-task a lot, and usually we get more things done in record time. The feeling of accomplishing a lot of things on the to-do list is amazing but the process of trying to do everything all at once can sometimes be plain exhausting and stressful, so as a break, I decided to write this post and give myself a break from all the things I been doing and I need done...

Anyone of you done filing your taxes already before the set deadline? If so, i salute you, definitely a wise decision to prepare it early.
