The Red Panda At The Zoo

I remember, during our visit to the zoo this year (2009), we were able to see very few Red Panda there, and it was quite a challenge what we had to go through inorder to finally see them!


We like bamboos, so we ended up hanging out in an area at the zoo which had plenty of bamboo landscaping. While we were in the bamboo area, we had the opportunity to be close to where the Red Panda where situated. But being able to see the Red Panda, it was not as easy as we thought its gonna be, we had to literally find where they were hiding or where their resting place is, and when we finally saw two of them, they were sleeping, like 99 percent of the time!
We waited and waited for them to wake up, we even try to shake some of the bamboo trees trying to catch their attention, but they were hardcore tired, I should say.

It took us several tries, and transfered from different spots and angles, to finally get one to wake up and capture one awake! Here it is:

I got lucky because when I clicked the camera, the cute little roundy face Red Panda was looking back at me, sweet!

Arguing Flamingoes

We went to the zoo few weeks ago, and encountered some of the most exotic wild species in this world. During our visit there, we got the chance t0 see flamingoes again, we saw one during our trip to a Florida park too. It was a nice relaxing day at the zoo with great sunny weather and some of the animals are in their food mood like when we were observing the flamingoes. There were quite a few flamingoes in a little section of the zoo, when all of the sudden we heared flamingoes started arguing with each other, atleast thats what it looked like to me, see the photo above. Looks like they are fighting who get the shrimps or something!

By the way, according to facts about flamingoes, they turn orange in color because of all the orange shrimps that they ate over time!

Emergency Funds In Times Of Unexpected Expense

Many of us are not prepared for any emergency situations that come our way. We usually live our day to day lives according to the plans that we make and the actions that we choose to take. Although, some of these actions lead to certain money spending that we dont normally do, but we choose to spend anyway. But there are times that emergency things happen beyond our control, things that affect us emotionally and financially that we dont expect to happen nor choose to do, but we have to face it somehow.

With limited income, and some living pay checks to pay checks, many of us do not have any emergency funds set aside to cover any emergency expenses that come our way at unexpected time. Even if we have friends and relatives that we can run into and rely on, we can almost always count on their emotional support but hardly when it comes to sudden borrowing of money because they also probably have just enough cash in hand and every penny is already budgeted for, waiting for their next payday to get by the next month, and barely have no extra cash to lend to you when you approach.

Emergency comes in different shapes and sizes, the only thing common about all of them is the fact that they are usually unexpected, and you dont see them coming. In situations when you caught off guard for instance your car tire went flat and you need to buy a replacement but it is not in your monthly budget but it is something that need to be done right away.

Thanks to cash advance company like Payday One, a licensed lending company in the United States, you can now borrow emergency cash without too much hassle. Payday Loans are quick and less stressful because you can get the emergency money you need almost overnight, with quick turn of around 24 hours. Usually, in emergency cases you do not have days to wait, so a quick turn around is a huge advantage and can definitely save the day. Try to check out some of the Payday One testimonies on video:

Our Lonesome Dove Neighbor

We have this one dove that regularly sits in an electrical wire that feeds our neighborhoods electricity. We see her regularly there, and also moves from tree to tree. So far I never see any company that she was with around. She seem to be living alone nearby, in one of the neighboring tree. Aside from wild squirrels and house cats and dogs that we see all around, this lonesome dove is definitely living in the area as well.

Add Character And Beauty In Your Space

When you walk into your space and you are not impress, it is time to do something about it! Inorder to make a space unique and stylish, having an expensive remodel is not always the best solution. Sometimes, many of us have the right space already, it just need some character added to it to make it functional as well as stylish.

Adding a character and style to a room doesnt always need a professional interior designer to do the job. Sometimes, having the right modern furniture and home accessories can do the magic and give you the right pop that you are looking for!

Why not give your bedroom a nice makeover and turn it into an oasis where you can enjoy and relax after a long day at work? A new modern bedroom furniture can make a huge difference in the overall look of your bedroom and help you get that fresh look that you want. Platform beds are a great option to achieve a modern and sophisticated look that not only give you comfort but style as well.

Do You Watch Movies In Big Screen Or DVD/Blu-Ray?

We hear the saying over and over: different folks have different strokes. Same different strokes personality applies to watching movies. A lot of us are movie fanatics, but we do have different ways of watching them. Some watch movies the moment they hit the big screen when they are showing in theaters, while others are fine waiting for few months to purchase a copy of DVD or Blu-ray. For our family, the later is our prefered choice, because we like the convenience of having complete control of the playing time, play, pause, rewind, forward, etc. Seeing the movie in big screen definitely have its huge advantage as well, like seeing the movie in a BIG screen and being able to see it right away and forget the waiting part of buying the printed DVD or Blu-Ray copy, which sometimes take months.

What about you folks, what is your prefered way of watching your favorite movie and why?

Spring Time Is Finally Here

I love the springtime, its been months, and its finally here! Many of us (definitely not the skiers and snowboarders) are hibernating and refraining from doing any yard and outdoor activities all winter long. For some reason, the gloomy cloudy days of autumn and winter seasons seem to naturally keep most of us from enjoying our yard and having the desire to hang out outside. During the cold days, we prefer to stay indoor and enjoy the nice warm air in our fireplace or central air instead. Spring season offers bright promises, it is a perfect time to start enjoying the outdoors again, clear up the deck and set up the outdoor patio set. Spring time is also the best time to expect colorful surprises in your garden. Many flowers blooms in the spring and most plants get out of hibernation mood and grow leaves again. So out with the coats and boots and in with light shirts, shorts, and flip flops once again.

Innovative Way To Deal With Rain Gutter Issues

We cannot control mother nature, it could be stormy or really calm days, but it is beyond our control how the weather goes, we just have to deal with it in best way we can, rain or shine!

Some areas have more rainy days than sunny days, while other places have occasional rains throughout the year. But no matter what, we need to take necessary measure inorder to keep our house safe when the rainy days come. One of the most damaging condition that a building structure like a house have to go through is dealing wet and moist condition. Thats why it is critical to have best shape roof at all times and having a well functioning gutter protection for your rain gutter.

Gutter roof is a great innovation that works really good in keeping leaves and other organic debris out of your gutter. There is nothing as frustrating as having a plugged gutter in the middle of a rainstorm and you need to go out in the storm and clear up the debris. With gutter guard you dont have to worry about going out in the rain storm because it does the work for you.

Coffee Talk

Coffee, coffee, coffee.....for some people, a day always starts with coffee! So where do you stand in this coffee statistics?

When I was younger I hardly drink any coffee at all. My family, parents and grandparents, use the Nescafe instant coffee, we just normally just add hot water, sugar, and powdered milk, and its good to go. The younger ones, we when we were young, just had either hot choco, milk, or juice for breakfast.

Nowadays, I like having a cup of coffee to start the morning. Its good to have a nice warm coffee when I wake up... My hubby used to brew his coffee, but i introduced instant coffee to him, and he doesnt seem to mind, actually he likes the taste of instant coffee too. As a creamier, we just use a little pour of fresh milk with it.

I like the coffee at Starbucks too, but we dont do that on a daily basis because the price is not cheap to get addicted too specially if there is a bunch of family members! Buying a whole jar of instant coffee that will last for weeks for the same price makes more sense for a budget conscious family.

Have a nice day, JazeVox

Outdoor living is becoming a way of life nowadays. Inorder to fully enjoy ones yard or backyard, it would be best to developed it into a usable and more livable space by putting outdoor furnitures where the family can go out, sit down, relax and enjoy the great weather and observe nature.

One of the most commonly neglected area of a family dwelling is the yard. Usually, we spend a lot of time and money making the interior of our home look nice and pretty. But equally important is the look and curb appeal of the exterior of the house, specially the yard. Taking pride of home ownership shows a lot by how homeowners dress up both the interior and exterior of their house. Even if a homeowner is not a professional landscaper, she/he can definitely accessorize and add some nice touches around.

At Mailbox And Beyond website they carry variety of outdoor products that are great for your yard.

Let your visitors and delivery men find your house easily in the neighborhood with decorative address plaques and house numbers, not only are they useful but decorative as well that helps with the overall look of your the exterior home.

Much Needed Rainy Days

Just few weeks ago, i heard in the weather news that California overall only accumulated around sixty (60) percent rain compare to normal average as far as rain and snow. At that time, it was hard to imagine that there are more rainy days since winter time is almost coming to an end and spring time is coming up. But these past few days have been absolutely wet. Day after day of rain, and lots of snowflakes are falling in the high sierras and as well as in the foothills, the weather definitely dominates the telivision news. Rain and snow here in most part of CA is necessary and great for the environment, so a little discomfort due to wet weather can be minor compares to the huge benefits and the uses that we can gain from it.

Many family are particularly interested in making their homes look nice and comfortable, and as homey as possible. The two main areas of the house that are most desired to be developed and renovated are usually the kitchens and the bathrooms.

An ideal standard bathroom that most household want in their home is usually a nice and clean space complete with matching bathroom accessories. While browsing at Fairfield Bathrooms Direct website, physically based in UK, i noticed all their wide variety of different products for the bathroom. One of the things that caught my attention while browsing at their online store is this unique green bamboo design toilet cover, I never seen anything like it somewhere else! So perfect for a tropical or jungle theme bathroom.

Telivision Show Recording Advantage

Telivision surely gone a long way. Before the end of February 2009, the nationwide implementation of digital signal is in full effect (in the USA) and making your analog telivision old and obsolete, but can still be usuable if you can obtain a signal converter from analog to digital.

Nowadays, clear high definition picture is among the sought-after advantage of going digital. Another great advantage of going digital is being able to set reminders of your favorite shows and being able to record!

Different telivision channels compete with each other tremendously, and at peak hours specially in the evening, each channels broadcast their most popular shows almost at the same time frames. As a result, many viewers ended up confused which channel to go to and what show to watch. If only there was a way to watch all your favorite shows at your own pace and not miss any of them! Fortunately, now there is, we can now record shows that play at the same time, this way, while watching one show, you can watched your other recorded favorite show at later time at your convenience.

Recorder unit usually is an additional package that you can avail at an additional cost to your availed tv package. People have different views and comments with regards to availing a digital recorder because it is not something that you automatically get for free when you signup for cable or satellite signal. I personally didnt like the idea of paying extra to get the recorder unit, but one day we decided to try it for a month, and now its hard to imagine not having one! The best thing about having a digital recorder for telivision is having the power to pause, forward, rewind, stop the show at any time. And if you are busy at the time the show is played on telivision, if you recorded the show, you can play it at a later time! That is definitely convenience and you are in full control, and best of all, you can fast-forward the commercials in between entirely!

Cordless Mouse Innovation

I am a great fan of cordless computer mouse simply because it is so easy to store, easy to carry wherever, and easy to handle and use. We still have few working computer mouse with cords, but with the convenience of cordless mouse, why mess with cords and deal with it?

I specially prefer the cordless mouse design with USB in it and uses a regular battery, that you can buy almost any store, the size AAs or AAAs, the smaller the better...The USB drive you can fit at the back of the mouse when not in uses and automatically turns of the unit and save the battery of the mouse, is such a energy-saving idea.

A computer mouse with cord have its own convenience like not having to worry about separate battery for the mouse, but the battery-saving design of the cordless mouse allows prolong use the mouse before one has to worry of replacing the battery anytime soon. The battery is available in most stores and is the type the battery that most household have stocks of, so it almost the least of cordless mouse users worries.

Flourescent Light Within A Bulb

Few days ago, we were roaming around a home improvement store and noticed that aside from all kinds of led light innovations, we noticed that a flourescent light within a bulb design is also available nowadays, which is really neat because we always prefer the look of a bulb in our lamps compare to a curled-up flourescent lamps sized-down to fit like a bulb.

Going Stainless Steel All The Way

For years, stainless steel appliances are highly desireable by most people. Stainless steel looks very high-end, sophisticated, modern, and stylish.

Going stainless steel does not only apply to your appliances anymore because you can now carry out the stainless steel theme all through out your home like having stainless steel fireplace accessories. You can even have a stainless steel mailbox if you like inorder to help achieve a great curb appeal and wow not only your mailman but everyone who come in your front entrance and see your hard-to-miss shinny mailbox!

While browsing at The Stainless Store, they offer wide variety of different products made of blomus stainless steel. I love their collections a lot, you can see plenty of styles in their online store that you dont see in most brick-and-mortar stores. One of my favorite is their blomus stainless steel pinwheel that you can find in their online store under Outdoor category.

Read The Sign, No Solicitors

In a Saturday morning, we usually dont have a lot of things plans ahead, just a relaxing getaway in bed, sleeping and snooring, probably.

You plan to extend your lazy Saturday nap, and then you are suddenly awaken by a continuous knock-knock-knock sound coming from your front door, sounds familiar? The unwanted solicitors are back again. Even if you place No Solicitors sign in your front door, it really sucks when some of them doesnt even honor the sign. The sign should give the solicitors the clue that people who put signs like that in their front door will never avail what ever services they will present, the homeowners just want a nap, really.

When the homeowners put a No Solicitors sign in front door, the reality is the homeowners cabinets probably doesnt need refurnishing, the carpet doesnt need replacement, the gutter is still working fine, or they dont have the budget just yet. If the homeowners really want to do all these at present, they would be out somewhere looking for the right people to do the job for them.

Gardening And Decorative Planters

If I have to mention one of the things that I truly enjoy doing, it is being outside in our garden! Me and my hubby are avid gardeners, we enjoy growing different variety of flowers, fruit trees, vegetables, and all types of other plants. It is amazing to witness a simple seed turn into a tall plant and can produce beautiful flowers or delicious fruits.

Aside from our ground garden, we also plant several different variety of flowers in garden planters and put them in the deck or staircase to add touch and curb appeal to our outdoor space. One of best thing i like about using decorative planter is that it serves as its own decor when the plants sleep during the winter time.

I usually choose planters that works really well with our existing home exterior like the color of the paint and other existing accessories.

Jaggling With Printers

When we got our first all-in-one printer years ago, i really like, i still do. Love the different functionalities that comes with it. It can print, copy, fax. I dont use it as often as Id like to because it is setup away from my computer. Before we got the all-in-one printer, we had the Deskjet printer that also print black and white and colored, and thats the one that Ive been using and placed in my work table. Although our Deskjet cannot do everything that i needed to do, it does suffice my need to print most of my black and white printings that consist 99 percent of my printing works. Thats why when the ink for the Deskjet printer went on sale, we bought quite a few back-up inks. Then my hubby bought a digital camera that came with another all-in-one printer, which he gave to me recently. Unfortunately, I cannot use it yet because I have some more back-up or spare deskjet inks that i need to consume first before buying another type of ink for different printer.

Have a wonderful day ahead, thank you from www.HonestlyFresh.com

Got Some Rain

Its been dry here in northern CA and if there is something that most California residents could really use these days, its rain and more rain. As per the record book, the month of January is one of the most rainy month here, but we dont have a lot of it this month. But just like the weatherman predicted, the rain finally came today! Although it was not very heavy nor whole day event, every little bit goes a long way specially for a state that doesnt get a lot of rainy days in a year. Summertime is fast approaching and significant amount of rain is necessary in this part of the country before summer begins.

Driving in the rain? Slow down and dont rush! Be home safely.

Days Outside

For the past few days, the weather have been so nice here in northern California. The sun is out and so perfect to go around town and do some yard work as well. Took some time to rake dead leaves in the lawn, below the huge tree we have in the backyard. The weather is great but definitely could use some colors around. Most of the trees around the area lost their leaves already for the winter time, so its quite a relief to know that we dont have to wait for more leaves to fall down and had to rake them everyday, specially that we have several trees nearby.
