Life Fitness treadmill

Posted by Malou at 12/23/2009 06:40:00 PM 2 comments
There's something to be said about working from home. Sure, you're conserving gas you're more than likely spending more time with your family. The freedom of not having a boss I think is the greatest and some days its lucky that you have friends online to ask a question once in a while when you get stuck on something. Only one problem I found out is that you really need a Life Fitness treadmill. All this sitting around typing on a keyboard I am not getting exercise like I was used to. Now all I need is my husband to build a special shelf in front of the treadmill so I can work and exercise at the same time.

Muscle spasms

Posted by Malou at 12/23/2009 06:31:00 PM 1 comments
The house was pretty quiet today. We had a lot of things to do this afternoon. About an hour before we're leaving my husband was just sitting on a chair and he let out a screech. For no reason at all the muscles in his lower back completely went into spasms. His lower back was so tight it felt like concrete. We rushed to the pharmacy to find something for muscle relief but there is no over the counter muscle relaxer without a prescription. What a joke this is. We ended up just buying some aspracream. The aspracream only helps a very little so we got him on the heating pad, but its been four hours and he is still in pain. Any insight to this from anyone might be helpful for the next time.

Medicare supplement insurance

Posted by Malou at 12/18/2009 07:53:00 PM 1 comments
It all started one dark rainy night my husband left the restaurant coming down the main street. He went to take a left to get on the interstate, he was distracted by a bunch of kids on the side of the street pretending to throw something at his truck. He never seen the black car coming at a high rate of speed with no headlights on. As the two vehicles hit my husband's air bag went off snapping his neck sideways and now putting him through years and year of pain. Medical insurance is so expensive. Medicare supplement insurance sure helps out a lot. It saves us hundreds a month on our bills.

Our rose tree journey

I'm so happy with my husband again for suggesting that we dig up our rose tree. It usually goes through the winter outdoors without a problem. We cover it up so the snow doesn't hurt it but this year we brought it in and its blooming like all the time. Here's a beautiful picture of our tree.

Christian Louboutin

I'm so happy with my husband today. I never have enough room in my closet specially for my shoes. We were at Lowe's not thinking about my closet situation. Just there buying a new faucet for our tub. We happened to take a short cut to the bathrooms down the closet organizer isle. My eyes lit up when I seen all the shelving that can hold my beautiful shoes for every occasion. My husband spent the whole day cutting and installing the new shelves and of course the top shelf was reserved for my Christian Louboutin shoes. They're the highlight of my day even though I only wear then twice a year for special occasions.

Peanuts with garlic

Posted by Malou at 12/14/2009 07:42:00 PM 0 comments
We bought some fresh peanuts from the store. I wanted to cook something different for my husband. He has never tried peanuts with garlic so I cooked it just the way I cook it way back when I was in the Philippines. It will take your breath away! (lol) Anyhow I posted the picture here. See for yourself folks. :-)

Dark circles under eyes

Posted by Malou at 12/05/2009 10:52:00 AM 0 comments
Worrying will get you nowhere. Staying up most of the night thinking about all the preparations for the on-coming Christmas season can drive you crazy sometimes. We took care of buying presents for mostly everybody then you start second guessing yourself of how many presents were given last year. All these added up to the dark circles under eyes. The stress shows in your face. Having a nice bottle of wine with dinner tonight should be enough to relax.

Zhu Zhu hamster pets

Can you believe the latest electronic hamsters? What will they think of next? At least you don't have to clean up the *@!* This things are amazing but if we buy one I think we'll wait for the price to come down. On eBay they're bidding these things at three times the price not to mention all the attachments you can buy extra for their comfortable living. Reminds me of the Elmo craze of years ago.

Natural fat burner

Posted by Malou at 12/05/2009 10:26:00 AM 0 comments
My husband was recently laid off so we kinda get stuck in the house learning to make a little extra money online. It's going slow but its going ahead. My husband woke up this morning to put his favorite pants on and they were quite tight. Staying at home not doing the physical work at work he says he's going to need a natural fat burner to slow down the additional weight that he is putting on.

Yester year

Posted by Malou at 12/05/2009 10:12:00 AM 0 comments
I let my husband do a lot of shopping online for our little boy. He wanted to pick him out some toys to have fun with like he did when he was little. He laughed as his toys were now called antiques. His Tyco raced track when he was younger cost approximately thirty nine dollars. Today online, the track brings a steep price of a hundred and fifty dollars. Also cars used to cost five dollars now average eighteen dollars. It just goes to show you how much things have increased over thirty years. I guess its not too bad.

Free web directory

Posted by Malou at 11/27/2009 05:16:00 PM 1 comments
There's hundreds and hundreds of people out there that easily can design you a web site. Not to mention all the hosting companies that include building instruments to develop your own site. When you don't know a single thing about building web site it can be hard. A lot of the programs you're working with take practice. I may not know how to design a web site very fast but I concentrated on what I do the best. Searching the net for little niche things or services, that will bring in traffic. The free web directory that I ran into helps with your submission to search engines and in turn they would like to put a link on your site I think it's a very satisfying trade off.

So many coats

Posted by Malou at 11/27/2009 05:04:00 PM 3 comments
What to choose? The more there are to choose from the harder it is for me to pick the coat that I wanted to get. It's been almost five years now of me living in New York and it was the first time that I've been to Burlington Coat Factory. I should say this store has almost everything in it when it comes to the kind of coat that you want. After trying on different ones I finally settled down with the heather grey coat that has a fake fur edging on the hood.

Jura coffee machine

Posted by Malou at 11/18/2009 11:06:00 AM 0 comments
It was just that thing that I had to do. After doing our kitchen renovation my new refrigerator and stove were stainless steel and black highlights. All my new counter tops were granite so beautiful with the cherry cabinets. After setting up the kitchen I decided I needed all new small appliances. Let's face it all the old ones were white. The jura coffee machine is my center of attention when my friends come over. So diversified compared to my old stuff.

AB Slide Roller Slider : my little blue machine

Posted by Malou at 11/18/2009 10:54:00 AM 1 comments
Trying to keep your tummy in tone? There's lots of machine on the market remember a strong tummy equals a stronger back. If people wouldn't let their tummy go to flab there will be millions of dollars less spent on back operations each year. Let alone instructing them on how to use their legs to pick up things rather than their back. The best little product that keeps my tummy in tone I called it "my little blue machine". It is called the Abs-slide.

Drug rehab

After all these years a classmate of my husband was on a verge of colapse. My husband tried helping him quite a few times. It was such a long journey bringing his friend back from a dependency like none-other. Two months to get him off the stuff. He stayed off the longest this time about seven months. The stress this put on my husband was so bad. I finally told him that he should find treatment for his friend. Putting him into a drug rehab was the best thing for all of us.

Cooking oil comparison

Posted by Malou at 11/18/2009 10:18:00 AM 0 comments
Its all political. Years and years ago they said coconut oil was the best for you to use while cooking. But coconut oil is an import and the they don't want you to rely on an import. Being corn oil is manufactured on a huge volume in the US, they convinced us that its better for us. Sometime you should do a side by side comparison. Coconut oil seems to be the winner. The only thing with coconut oil that might bother you is that it starts smoking at a lower temperature than the others. So by turning the heat down it also saves you in your energy bills so what's not to win in this circumstance.

Heated mattress pads

After many many years we had got sick of our water bed mattress we ended up switching to a regular mattress. After buying the mattress and spending a lot of money on a special size it just didn't seem that we could get comfortable on it. We had it for about a year and decided to go back to a wave less mattress. We also bought heated mattress pads that made it quite comfortable in our cold New York home.

Using safety sunglasses

Posted by Malou at 11/18/2009 09:39:00 AM 0 comments
Working as a carpenter my husband is always running into different job situations. The concern with safety is always priority number one. He's always upgrading his safety equipment. We were cleaning out the shed to lighten our load by having a yard sale. I couldn't believe when I opened the box that there was over fifteen pairs of safety glasses. Darker ones, lighter ones, colored ones. To my amazement I slipped on one of the yellow pair. I don't know what they put on this lenses but my husband tells me the yellow ones worked terrifically in low light situations. everything looks extremely brighter and crystal clear.

Appetite suppressant

Posted by Malou at 11/18/2009 09:29:00 AM 0 comments
My husband has sleep apnea his usual time for falling asleep is two in the morning and he is backed up by seven o'clock in the morning. After three or four days like these he might get an eight hour night of sleep. Staying up all the time burns calories but in the middle of the night you don't want to cook. He started taking an appetite suppressant because munching all night seems to pack the pounds on. An extra weight is a bad enemy.

Buyer beware!

The excitement of the seasons, the crazy madness sometimes you just can't shop in peace anymore. You always think that the parking lot is so huge until the Christmas buying spree hits. We're always looking out for a sale though. It's nice to try to go to a black friday sale but don't forget what happened at wal-mart last year one employee was trampled to death.

Journey to our revolving world

It is so amazing what life in times I've lived through at my young age. I can just about imagine what my parents had thought about our revolving world in their lifetime. They're in their late 60's. Myself I have witnessed the electronic era come in and expand like a blooming flower overnight. Just one of the things I'm grateful for is getting rid of all our beta, VHS tapes converting to DVD's. So much less storage for DVD's.

Diamond Initial Pendant

Posted by Malou at 11/11/2009 08:54:00 AM 2 comments
Every year it's tough looking for birthday present for my mom. We look here we look there we look everywhere. A lady of her age has just about everything. Christmas time is the worst trying to buy for mom and dad. Over the years she reminded me that I gave her the same birthday card twice. Hey what can I say it's a cute card with a 3D kitty cat on it. She loves cats. So I tend to lean towards that type of card. This year we found a beautiful Diamond Initial Pendant for her. I didn't realize that she didn't have something like this until she was talking to her friends about how beautiful their pendants are at church.

Fooling the flowers

Well the winter frost finally got here and that means some of our seasonal plants are done 'till spring but I just couldn't stand the thought of not seeing my white rose tree 'till next May. So my husband and I bought a big flower pot brought it inside, put it in our front sunny side window and it started sprouting new buds so we're hoping we can fool it into having the big white roses all year round.

About six months ago we had a bad electrical storm come through. Our power going on and off is usually not a problem but we weren't home at the time. The neighbors say the power went off and on two to three times but then it went low voltage. Even with our surge protectors, surge protectors are for high electrical surge's. They did not protect our TV or computer from the low voltage coming in on the ground side of the power. Luckily our home insurance covered us. A new HDTV and computer was just what we needed. After the insurance paid us we ended up with two hundred and fifty extra dollars. Time to buy some clothes.

Digital frame

Posted by Malou at 10/22/2009 08:41:00 AM 0 comments
It's always hard at Christmas to buy for my mother and father-in-law. Let's face it. They're seniors in their early eighties so it's hard to find them something unique. For a while there we were stuck on buying them stuffed animated toy animals. Now they're unique and Mom enjoyed showing them off to friends. I think that the most unique family orientated item that we bought them is their digital frame. They're in Florida for half a year. They bring the frame home with them and we load it with all the pictures of the times when they were gone so they can have them for their next six months in Florida.

Maxwell House Coffee

Did you ever notice the people that like instant coffee can't stand perked coffee and vice versa? I think the perked coffee taste very bitter to me. My husband feels the same way. While on the trip over to the Philippines he discovered that Maxwell House has all in one little packet. It's for the people that liked two sugars, one cream, and mild coffee. As they say all in one. It's taste is incredible. We found even our friends that liked perked coffee loved this little incredible packet. Wish we had more we'll have to wait for the next trip I guess.

Bathroom lighting

Posted by Malou at 10/22/2009 08:28:00 AM 0 comments
We were very energy conscious these days. Replacing all of our bulbs throughout the house with new energy efficient bulbs. I don't mind saving money but in some cases these new bulbs don't give proper lighting. For instance in the bathroom lighting, its like being around the old fashioned fluorescent lighting. Have you ever seen your complexion with fluorescent? It really doesn't bring a smile to your face in the morning. You be the judge.

Roof leaks starts at the top

Posted by Malou at 10/22/2009 07:45:00 AM 0 comments
Did you ever touch something that you know you shouldn't? Like the old cliche' opening a can of worms. My husband went out to the repair of the small leak in the roof. he went to the area where it was leaking took off that piece of metal only to find out the water was coming from a different area. You could see where the water had travelled to the edge of the siding. He pulled some siding off you could still see where the water had travelled behind the siding up to the edge of the upper roof and then behind the siding to the next roof. So now by this time he has half a a corner of our house exposed tracking down this little leak that will now take three days to repair and put back together. He slapped his own hand and said never again. He'll do more investigation before he tears things apart.

Inventory software

Posted by Malou at 10/22/2009 07:22:00 AM 0 comments
It seem very simple at first and it was definitely exciting starting our own business. The inventory that we had was basically three hundred fifty to four hundred items. It used to take only two hours a day to balanced our inventory. After a while we expanded our business. We really needed inventory software. It made our job so much easier not to mention keeping track of inventory that seemed to be missing. We could track what driver had it on its truck last by our driver knowing this I think it kept them more honest or in their toes anyway.

Winter non-moisture

Posted by Malou at 10/13/2009 07:06:00 PM 0 comments
The winter dryness drives my family crazy if we don't watch out for it. With the house closed up and the wood stove going. We put an old fashioned cast iron tea pot on top of the hot wood stove filled with water. It ads extra moisture into the house along with the dehumidifier we have, helps to keep our respiratory systems in check for the season.

Destin hotel

Posted by Malou at 10/13/2009 06:55:00 PM 0 comments
The problems we ran into this year I was just so frustrated. it was the timing thing also a lack of communication on my son-in-laws part. We planned a lot of the things months in advance so I guess its possible that he thought it was 9:30 in the morning instead of 7:30 that we're leaving. We were all ready to leave they're were just getting off to bed. Oh what fun that was! Next year we're letting somebody take over at Destin hotel to plan us a weeks worth of total surprises. I already talked to them and fill them in with how many of us and the different ages so set us up with a whole weeks worth of fun.

House husband

Being I've gone back to work at least on a temporary basis, now my husband is the house husband. You know the opposite of housewife. He's having a little bit of a tough time with it but I think after a few weeks he get the hang of it. I like vacuuming each day he likes every other day. I think he wants to go back to work though because he mentioned to me he does less work at work than he does at the house cooking, cleaning, vacuuming and taking care of Jarred.

Outdoor furniture

This spring it's time to throw up the old and bring in the new. One thing that we really believe in is buying quality outdoor furniture. We paid a lot of money for out set but it was looking a little dreary. We had it for eight years that's pretty amazing in today's standards. So when we started our search. We know it's going to take some time. We went out looking and weren't very happy with the quality at the stores around us. My husband decided to go online I'm glad he did we're very happy with our new quality furniture.

We we're very surprised the other day instead of turning left into Wal-mart my husband turned right into the Dollar store. Let's see what money we can save he said. We went inside first thing we bought was our cleaners for the house. They're off brand cleaners but what the heck we'll try them and see. Between the cleaners, Halloween candy, and some gloves we bought we figured we saved nineteen dollars for turning right instead of left.

Weight loss supplement

Posted by Malou at 10/13/2009 06:29:00 PM 0 comments
It's more of a girls thing I guess. Fighting with my little bit of stomach weight, its not that I eat a lot of the wrong things besides McDonald's once a week. In my case its all about being less active than when I used to. I like my vegetables and my rice. With how and where I work I can't get any busier and its too late at night when I get off to work and I'm tired. I don't want to go to the gym so time for the weight loss supplement to kick in and help me through my dilemma. Using the supplement help me lose the extra weight after I had our darling little boy.

Winter seems to be coming early to Upstate New York my husband says it might as well snow and get it over with. You know the only reason he said that is so he could get his winter toys out. We're preparing for it a whole month early. Getting all our winter clothes out, digging all our snow shovel in the shed that had been buried by all the summer stuff thrown in there. After that, change the oil in the snow blower and make sure the belts are good. Time for me to put up all the heavy curtains to slow down the cold. Here we go again...another six months.

Health insurance leads

We learned a lot about building a web site experimenting with different search engines web hosting company. They've got it down to a science on how to pull your business in. But only a few really go with extra mile to help you out. So finding the right hosting along with the right keywords gets to be a little monotonous. Take for instance for one that we needed at the time was health insurance leads it drove us crazy for a while until we found one site to help us. Feeling better now.

Party-shot Automatic Photographer

We decided to retire our digital camera the other day and buy a new one. we went to two stores noted for their wide selection. Its so hard to choose. So many different brands with options better this and better that. We ended up buying a nice Sony that I'm happy with. One of the cameras from Sony is called the paparazzo you set it in your room and all by itself the camera turns slowly when it finds a face it focuses and takes a picture all by itself. Now isn't that a little robot for you.

Refrigerator water filters

Posted by Malou at 10/11/2009 11:22:00 AM 0 comments
Moving in to a new house and in a different county, one of the last thing that we thought about was the city water. You wouldn't think it would be much different from county to county when it comes to drinking water but it is. For a while we ended up buying drinking water each week then we decided to put a filter on our tap in the kitchen. We have two refrigerators in our house because we like buying in volume so when my husband installed the water lines the refrigerator water filters worked great on removing the taste out of our city water.

Winter is coming

Winter is coming. Its almost here... time to tear apart the closet again. Packing up all our summer clothes is always a big job. Three different closets have to be cleaned out and packed up. The winter clothes are all up in the attic packed and sealed plastic totes. Bringing them down is the job for my husband I guess its time to get him off the couch and up there.

Online directories

Posted by Malou at 10/11/2009 08:31:00 AM 0 comments
We thought the hard part was over. Building a site for our product we thought was hard, that was easy part. After we're all done we decided to re-design it over and over again. Designing different templates for our site was so exciting. Then after everything was said and done we realized getting people there was almost solely based on a keyword search. By changing the name and some of the content on our site it helped. But the day that we found online directories was the best day. The programs that we found on their site increased our traffic at least ten fold.

Daily toxins

It's getting too much out of control in today's world the toxins that are getting into our body without us knowing are ridiculous. Chemicals in your shampoo, chemicals in shaving cream, even during your morning coffee the scalding hot water that goes against the plastic walls of your coffee maker. Small toxins are released out of the plastic. They can't conclude that this is enough to hurt you but when you add up all the little percentages of toxins that you come in contact with on a daily basis it's scary.

Best weight loss supplement

Posted by Malou at 10/11/2009 07:36:00 AM 0 comments
I guess I was trying too hard or maybe not enough patience trying to lose weight always seemed to take too long. A lot of times it's matching the right suplement with the right person's chemistry. Everything I bought to bring my weight down took three to four months. It only took 3 weeks to put it back on again. So for finding the right program it seemed to take forever. But once I found the best weight loss supplement my extra weight seemed to fall off in days instead of weeks. How happy I am with this.

Extra cash

Shopping around the other day for some new Halloween decorations is always fun. We actually found some skulls that we can put on the side of our walk way. They had all the different programmable sayings. They kind of catches you off guard because when you cross the path it sounds like they were talking to each other. Next was a trip to the pumpkin farm. We discovered all different kinds of pumpkins and gourds then it dawned on my husband that this gentleman selling the pumpkins was making a small fortune every fall selling these. We bought one of every kind and are planning to start our own little pumpkin farm for next year with the dried seeds from these pumpkins.

Industrial computer

It seems like we fought and fought more. We went out in today's retail market and bought a new bigger better PC payed tons of money for it. After three months it slowed right down because we run so many programs. The PC can't handle it even with all the RAM in it. We de-frag it re-arrange programs to run faster and had only the necessary programs that we needed. But still we find ourself in a mess. What we didn't know was online there were industrial computer and now that we are re-doing all of our fiber optics in our office we're so glad that we've purchased one.

Acid indigestion

I've noticed as I get older that some foods I used to eat are not agreeing with me anymore. So I started taking "TUMS" for an acid attack or little heart burn. I went to the doctor they wanted to put me on this pills for acid reflux disease which is crazy the pills had a bunch of side effects that are worse than the acidity itself. I got online an old fashioned remedy is the table spoon of vinegar cider along with a small sip of apple juice it works perfect for me.

Online masters

Amazing! Everything I was looking for was online. A friend of mine recommended the site. Usually when you go online and looking information on a subject, the site always comes up short. Not in this case. Actually, I went there looking for one particular thing and I found myself browsing the site in different categories for a couple of hours. I was looking for an Online masters degree in communication. My new job was taking me to bigger and better levels but I needed some help. Finding it here was God sent.

Our little engineer

Posted by Malou at 9/27/2009 10:22:00 AM 2 comments
I really think that our son is going to be an engineer one of the best things we bought him was the mega bloks. It helped so much with his hand and eye coordination. The set that we bought came with a pullable wagon that he can pull around to pick up all his scattered blocks also. He also had a train set. The amazing thing is that he came running to mommy one day saying "I got to show you this mommy", "I gotta show you this mommy" so I went to look. He had built a bridge to put his train track on so it would go up to the coffee table. So perfect. Watta boy Jarred!

Kohler faucet

Posted by Malou at 9/27/2009 10:03:00 AM 0 comments
The beauty within just hard to make up your mind renovating the bathroom in the kitchen took some time. My husband knows what he is doing but with the limited time to do things because of his work it seem to take forever. As we tore everything out of the bathroom we discovered there was water damage in the floor joices. So ripping down the floor joices without creating a lot of damage downstairs was extremely tedious. After that was done we were on our way. The hardest part for me was picking out the Kohler faucet and the floor tile. But when everything said and done it really only took three weeks to have my price bathroom.

Energy saving

Posted by Malou at 9/27/2009 09:54:00 AM 0 comments
We were excited the other day to learn that the government has put out an energy credit that you may use to deduct off your taxes. For improvements in energy savings in your home whether it be new windows or doors or added insulation but we found out that most of the products that you use have to be under the energy star program. Sounds simple enough. We found out that almost everything that's in the energy star program is over priced compared to a comparable product. Its nice to upgrade but when you start balancing out the price difference there's no real true savings here. You really can't see the savings when you compute the additional cost versus the lifetime of the product. You be the judge.

When opportunity knocks...

Posted by Malou at 9/25/2009 05:52:00 PM 1 comments
When it rain it pours. It is something how a lot of people just sit around and feel sorry for themselves. They whine, whine, whine and expect the government to take care of them. When we're down on our luck we try to always look at the sunny side of things. One opportunbity closes and one seems to always opens. Sometimes you might have to look for that opportunity a little harder.  But sometimes it comes knocking at your door. In our case that was the phone ringing over and over again in one day. Multiple opportunities for us all over the  place. 

Motorhome towing

Posted by Malou at 9/25/2009 05:22:00 PM 0 comments
Two years ago in the summer, we decided at a split second to hopped in our motor home and catch up with friends that were down in Bath Carolina. Driving from Central New York down to Bath where we were hoping to buy a small sailboat when we were there because it is sailboat city in Bath. We were doing fine but I started smelling something hot in the back of the motor home. It turned out that our brakes on the rear of the motor home were over heating. We pulled over and stopped on the interstate. That was our worst mistake. Stopping made the brakes completely cease up. We couldn't get going after that. Thank goodness we had motorhome towing. By the time they got there picked it up and serviced it we only lost six hours of our vacation but in the meantime waiting for the repairs get done we visited the little town that were in and picked up quite a few souvenirs from there.

Journeying with the kids the right insight

Kids! They always got to stay busy. So try to write and bounce on a trampoline at the same time with your little one. I got such a headache the other day from playing too hard with Jarred. But just remember its all about the kids. Happy childhood makes for a loving happy teenage and hopefully a better adult. Drilling in to them right and wrong hopefully they'll make the right decision in their long life ahead of them.

Sleeping pills

Posted by Malou at 9/17/2009 11:50:00 AM 0 comments
If you never experienced it you never want to. Sleeplessness just tears your world apart. It compounds every stress that you can possibly run into in a given day. If it continues it can take a complete toll in the length of your life. Finding the right sleeping pills for your particular case is like searching for a needle in a hay stack. Personally, I mixed and match two different kinds of pills so my system never get used to just one type.

Years ago when we didn't recycle. In a weeks time we were taking out five or six garbage bags of mixed trash a week. We feel so much better now doing our part to recycle. We only have one bag of pure garbage a week now and about three bags of recycling. The only problem with that is that it takes so long to fill up the true garbage or garbage bag that we end up taking it out to the trash can before the bag is full because obviously the smell of letting it sit there day after day is disgusting. So we were wasting bags which are made of plastic to save plastic of the recyclables. at leats the recyclels far outway the weight of a couple of extra bags.

Acne treatment

Tired of the same old all the time. Seems like we waste money hand over fist but finally found the right acne treatment for me. I kinda wish cost wise on our search that the manufacturer would give a way a sample of each of the product but that wouldn't make them much money would it. At least the products that I bought before worked for a friend.

The wonders of the Internet communication

It is still hard to imagine how fast the Internet is. Even though you know how it works it's still inconceivable how you can send a page or a message all the way around the world and it gets there in seconds. Or even to speed things up by going on instant messengers to chat. Its such a beautiful thing to be able to send pictures to love ones on the other side of the world. We usually send about twenty pictures a month and always arrive within seconds.

Weight loss supplements

Finally a weight loss supplements site that's helpful and conscientious. Anytime, buying anything these days it's great to see the different reviews from the products' manufacturers and guarantees to the general public feelings' and reviews. Ordering a sample packet of a product, I really think that they boost the active ingredient and when you buy the product in bulk it seems to be weaker or in some cases in the reviews not working at all.

The weather...the wood

Posted by Malou at 9/17/2009 08:53:00 AM 0 comments
We picked up a wood stove a couple of years back to try to offset our heat bill. After buying the wood stove and having the chimney installed it was quite an expensive adventure. The energy savings were immense because we're not using our gas for the furnish. We have quite a few extremely large cherry trees on our property so the next thing we bought was a chainsaw, an axe and the splitting wedge. So there was no cost for the wood just a lot of big effort in cutting, splitting, hauling, and stacking. But what we didn't know at first is that the wood should dry for at least a year . If you don't do this when you burn the wood it creates large amounts of creosote that is an oily sticky substance that gets stuck in your chimney. If it ignites in your chimney they call it a chimney fire that can burn your house down. So word of advice make sure your wood is dry and make sure that you clean your chimney on a regular basis.

Many years ago we develop the product from the many drawings of it then working about six months on a prototype we thought that was a lot of hard work. Patent searches and the marketing seemed to go on forever. It was really a quest also for finding the right people. The call centers that helped us were amazing. Before we decided on one we tested them another interesting adventure.

Flat panel mount

Posted by Malou at 8/28/2009 02:16:00 PM 1 comments
We had a lightning storm a couple of ways back. I wasn't home at that time. The neighbor was telling me that the power went on and off twice and then went to low voltage. I wasn't thinking about it much when I entered the house because I was reading the mail. More bills just what I needed. I just went about my normal routine. I took a shower turned on the living room TV. That seemed to be fine. It's an older Sony. When I went up to bed later that night I went to turn on the bedroom TV. It turned on for a moment and shut off I turned it back on to hear a popping noise and I knew it was gone. So off to the mall I went the next day. I picked up this beautiful 50 inch HD. They had a special deal, buy the TV and the flat panel mount to hold it on the wall.

It's great to see her again!

It's great to find a home insurance quote that helps home owners decide the coverage for home insurance policy to protect your home and family needs.

It's important and wise to save copies of important files in more than one spot. Its a good darn thing I followed what hubby told me when our PC started acting up because our old computer crashed! I managed to save all the pictures but only a quarter of the videos was saved on our Cd's. I was so upset with that. So we brought the computer to the geek squad to fix it and told us its going to take one month before we get it back. The computer was fried so they're going to send us a new one. Thank god we have a warranty on it. I just wish they could salvage the videos that we have on the old one.

Insurance quote

Posted by Malou at 8/17/2009 09:10:00 PM 0 comments
I always love it when somebody does the ground work for us. It saves us lots of time shopping for an insurance quote, can be long and boring comparing coverage versus pricing. My husband had been with one company for almost 30 years. In 30 years he have only one accident. He thought we were getting a great deal but after discussing the price of our boat insurance with the friend of mine her coverage was the same and it was a hundred and fifty dollars a year cheaper. So we decided to do a comparison and it amazed me that we are now saving over 600 dollars a year on all of our insurances.

AT & T Samsung Eternity Touch Phone

We decided to have another fun week end with our boat, went swimming, went fishing even had a picnic with our little cooker on an empty river bank. As night came upon us we decided to sleep on the boat we have battery backup on our boat. Thank goodness because we had to run a fan all night. The boat get a lot of condensation on the back canvass part roof. It didn't bother us in a caddy cabin because we had a fan and venting hatch. Only one slight problem, we left our celphones on the captain seat. Condensation dripped on them for probably five hours of the night. We looked at them and to our amazement the front screen were gone. oh no! so monday evening we were off to the celphone store. Only one of our phones was out of contract so we could only upgrade on one. I picked out this awesome samsung eternity. It has a tough screen. We also bought a protective case for it and picked up a monthly replacement policy. It cost a little extra but I think its going to be worth it. Its from AT& you can see a picture of it HERE .
PS my husband got stuck with the one with the old one with no screen 'till october 28th when that contract runs out.

Buckle up for safety

Posted by Malou at 8/14/2009 08:35:00 AM 0 comments
Wearing seat belts can save oneself saving your passengers lives including car seat restraints for young children and babies as well. It is required by law that should be followed. You can even see the big signs on the side of the road reminding everyone to buckle up. It is very important for the families safety. Forgetting to buckle up is impossible since our three year old always said the word "seat belts" before we take off, reminding us. It is so funny how he say it. Going back to my country in the Philippines sometime will be different and will become a new experience for my son since riding on the public transportation such as jeepneys and tricycles which doesn't have seat belts on it. Thank goodness for some other option is still available. Taxi's have seat belts even though the fare is quite expensive.

Because my hair is naturally curly it is usually frizzy and sometimes I have a tough time managing my hair especially around my 3 year old who always on the go for some games.

If you have same problem on your hair you can easily hide those frizz by using a headband.

After three weeks of waiting, the package that my sister sent through the mail arrived. I had bad experience before with packages sent through the mail either disappeared along the way or a box of goodies received but some items missing. I am glad that this time it made it to our home completely intact. Mama added pilinut candies inside the package which she cooked by herself. Home made pilinut candies is always the best. Pilinut candy is a bicolano delicacy. The last time I ate it was may be a a year or two years ago. To Jarred it's his first experience to taste the yummy home made pilinuts which he enjoyed so much.

I was in front of the computer today with the determination to complete the task that my husband have put into my shoulder. I'm a fanatic when it comes to taking pictures. Our computer is loaded of pictures dated from 2007 up to the present and I thought it's going to take 17 hours to transfer the pictures on the disk. If not from the computer acting up I wasn't going to do this because I like going back on the old pictures and storing them on the computer picture file for browsing is a lot easier but then again they say it's not really a good idea to store tons of picture in your computer. I guess they're right.

Ceramic tile are just about forever and so many uses from floor tiles with so many intricate designs in doing of different inlays of mosaics to making your own custom counter tops and back splashes. The best fun we had was when we renovated our bathroom after taking forever to pick out our wall ceramic tile. First we decided to do a half wall of tiles with a cove edge tile at the top edge. But then we decided that look so nice, we decided a cove edge back off and continue all the way of the wall. We used three different colors and used an inside corner tile to trim to the ceiling. Kind of an old fashion look but it was our masterpiece and we love it.

During my spare time I love reading books and one of my favorite author is Barbara Cartland. She sold over 1,000 books which gave her a place in the Guinness book of Records. I fall in love with her novels and started collecting them when I was in high school. Sad to say I left all my collections in the Philippines when I moved here in the state.

It's been a while since I had the chance to update my blog here days had been so hectic but this morning was different. I opened our computer and sat down in front of it. The news I just read had made me excited wanting to call my loved ones immediately living in the Philippines situated in the extended seven kilometer danger zone radius of the Mayon Volcano which is now under PHIVOLCS monitoring and said to be now showing signs of increased activity. I've lived there in years of my adult life so when Mayon Volcano is erupting it makes me worried so much of my family and everyone living around Mayon Volcano considering how difficult it is to deal with the treacherous Mayon Volcano. Although the beauty of the towering Mayon Volcano is beautiful on our naked eye the cause of its eruption on the previous years had left marks of undying sadness to everyone from the loss of our loved ones. The alert level was raised to level one residents and tourists are advised not to enter the seven-kilometer extended danger zone and the six-kilometer permanent danger zone.

SD card

Posted by Malou at 5/14/2009 01:54:00 PM 0 comments
I was bugging my husband to buy me an extra sd card for my laptop. I have quite a collection of pictures already downloaded to the lap top's picture file and I don't want to add some more since it slows down the computer. I'd rather save the pictures on the SD card to save more of the computer's memory. But I'm glad when we went to the store the other day and bought the 4GB SD card because lately I been adding more video files on it. It's very useful.

Birding season

Posted by Malou at 5/14/2009 01:16:00 PM 3 comments
We are rewarded by a beautiful sight one morning. A busy bird found an empty glass bowl laying on top of the rail on our deck close by the air conditioner. The bird must thought that it would be a nice place to build a nest for her growing family. I smiled at the thought. This bird is logical. The bowl is round and deep enough for building a nest. Its perfect and all she had to do is put in some more straws. Days passed and every day we check on the bird's nest when finally the mother bird had laid an egg. Its wonderful. So I took my camera and sneak out very carefully not to disturb the mother bird and took a few picture. We are excited and can't wait to see the egg hatch.

lcd monitor

Watching our favorite show from an lcd monitor has never been so much better with that home made pop corn and a refreshing drink were all set. It saves us a lot instead of going out to watch a movie. We're happy with our LCD monitor which gives us a really big picture and clearer view with its high resolution. Its slim design is perfect for our room too.

When we go to the stores we'll notice that bar codes are in every box in fact or should I say its in every box in this world. Store owners had been using this many many years ago and barcode scanner to automate supermarket checkout systems. It's a task in which they have become more popular with an advantage not just for a business owner but also to the customer for easy business transaction.

Shopping for Ryobi 18 volt weed eater

Posted by Malou at 5/14/2009 07:53:00 AM 1 comments
The weeds are on their way out and pretty soon enough our backyard will look like a jungle. Weeds are popping up everywhere. We went to home depot the other day to look for a Ryobi 18 volt weed eater since Daddy had a lot of Ryobi battery collection which he has been using to his other tools that way we can easily use them for our weed trimmer. We are disappointed to know that they don't carry a Ryobi 18 v weed eater anymore. We also searched online from the manufacturer's site and leaned that they don't carry it no more. We end up in buying a black decker that we don't really care for but we are not giving up yet on our search so I'd appreciate anyone who have an idea where we can buy it.

Fat burner

Posted by Malou at 5/09/2009 07:53:00 AM 1 comments
A friend like the simplicity of it. She go to the gym, put herself on the right diet but it doesn't seem to work one hundred percent the way she think it should. Her whole story started out with her mom letting her get away with eating all the wrong foods. Her mom should of just crack her on the butt and denied her these but I guess the whining got the best of her so at twelve years old she was already eighteen pounds over weight. So today with the help of the fat burner it gives her an edge to conquer the last leg of her weight loss.

early mother's day present

Posted by Malou at 5/08/2009 05:43:00 PM 1 comments
The phone ring. I wasn't going to answer the phone because I hate it when you're going to dive on the phone and came to realize that the caller is just another tele-marketer. I change my mind and picked up the phone. It was my husband on the line and with a happy tone he asked me to prepare and go outdoors with our son because he's on his way home and bringing his surprise. About five minutes later he arrived with a smile on his face. He called Jarred to help him hand the plants to me and say happy mother's day. My day is complete. He brought me a lot of vegetable plants with different varieties such as jalapeno peppers, sweet pepper, tomato, broccoli, watermelon. There's also two rounded evergreen shrub, pansy plant and a white rose full of flowers on it. I made a joke on him and said looks likes he bought the whole farm already. I'm so happy with my early mother's day presents. We're sure going to have lots of veges this year.

Custom rubber stamps

Posted by Malou at 5/08/2009 02:38:00 PM 2 comments
Being a small business we are always looking for unique and ingenious ways for our advertisement to stick out. Having custom rubber stamps cut to suit our needs is the best way. A lot of times we're changing our flyers at the last minute to suit the community that we're targeting for advertisement. With a never ending color supply at the spur of the moment, we can change the brightness of the color format that actually makes an old style flyer look as if it's a whole different ad.

On Mothers Day

Posted by Malou at 5/08/2009 12:55:00 PM 0 comments
Talking to your love one on the phone specially when you're 8509 miles away from each other is very important. I talked to my Mama on the phone and it makes me happy whenever I heard her voice and somehow lessen my home sickness. We talked about many things but one sentence that I will not forget. My Mama said " Ngayon alam mo na kung ano ang pagiging ang isang ina" (Now you know what being a mother is). Love, patience, perseverance, sacrifice, caring, guidance and many many more beautiful traits that a mother will do for her children. That is my Mama she have a big heart that never gets tired of doing these beautiful values since I was in her womb and still now that I have my own family. She's a good example for me and my siblings that will remain and I will pass on to my children. I am so lucky indeed. Mama I LOVE YOU and Happy Mother's Day.

Pool toys

Is your swimming pool ready yet? For some warm weather is all what they've been waiting for so they can jump in on their pool and have fun. When daddy took me yesterday to his work he showed me the pool in just the nearby office. The water looks so inviting. The benches around it were nice as well as the new gazebo which is my favorite. They also have a grill in a corner and I noticed that all was missing are pool toys so they can start a party.

Task to finish the ads

Finishing my task today in printing out the advertisements which we will distribute to apartment complex down in Liverpool is very important but then again I was busy doing the laundry let alone cleaning the house and playing with my son. I still have 4 hours to do it before my hubby comes home. It's time for lunch.

My friend just came back on her visit from Texas. Of course who would forget a camera to bring along with. Never in her entire life that she left it behind. As a souvenir she took lots of pictures from Arboretum Park. She is a die hard of flowers so most of the pictures she had are flowers. These photos are pretty cool. Its a work of art.

Outer Banks

Every year my step daughter's family spend their weeks vacation at Outer Banks. They are lucky to have a very good package deal of a place, no wonder it's their favorite place as a get away travel destination during summer. Last year she gave me dried shells which she patiently picked out by herself from the beach. I thought that was very sweet of her thinking of me.

Proper posture

Posted by Malou at 5/08/2009 10:53:00 AM 0 comments
Are you stuck in front of the computer for long periods of time doing your work? Its time for a reality check. The sitting position causes the stomach muscles to become slack and weak from under use. Maybe you are unaware that your shoulder slump. Sitting on your posterior for hours on end creates chronic back pain, initiates headaches and fatigue. Conditioning your body with exercise, body therapies, and most of all proper sitting position may help stop the injuries.

My little one loves to sing his ABC's in fact he is really good on it. So I wrote down the letters on a big piece of paper one day thinking that he could easily remember the letter when he started learning to write. So far he can say each letters now when I point each one of them. Next step is encouraging him how to write.

Appetite suppression

Posted by Malou at 5/08/2009 07:50:00 AM 0 comments
It's tough to eat sensibly on the road and finding fast foods sometimes is your one stop to eat especially when you were in a hurry to go to your destination. The result many people return from vacation and dismayed to find that they gained several pounds. You end up breaking your what to do list on appetite suppression. I must admit that during our vacation we also go to fast food restaurants just because it is easier especially when you were with the kids and running around the park to get on the next ride.

Whenever I go to my husbands work I never missed a chance to visit the senior living community library at his workplace. Yesterday I was there again. It fascinates me how many books they have acquired already from donations of the residents who live on the area. I picked out two books to read and all you have to do is sign in your name and title on the log book. Now I have books to read and keep me occupied on my free time.

Do this while driving

Posted by Malou at 5/05/2009 12:24:00 PM 0 comments
My friend and I were talking how bad some drivers are these days. As we talked she mentioned about the jokes that she received from a friend through her email. This is really a good one but please be reminded. We do not advise doing any of the below "things to do while driving", as all driving should be taken seriously. The below "things to do while driving" are simply here for entertainment purposes.
Strange and silly things to do while driving:
Vary your vehicle's speed inversely with the speed limit.
Roll down your windows and blast talk radio. Attempt to head bang.
At stop lights, eye the person in the next car suspiciously. With a look of fear, lock your doors.
Two words: Chicken suit.
Write the words "Help me" on your back window in red paint. The more it looks like blood, the better.
Have conversations, looking periodically at the passenger seat, when driving alone.
Laugh a lot. A whole lot.
Stop at the green lights.
Go at the red ones.
Occasionally wave a stuffed animal/troll doll/Barbie out your window or sunroof. Feel free to make it dance.
Eat food that requires silverware.
Pass cars, then drive very slowly.
Sing without having the radio on.
Honk frequently without motivation.
Wave at people often. If they wave back, offer an angry look and an obscene gesture.
Ask people for Grey Poupon.
Let pedestrians know who's boss.
Look behind you frequently, with a very paranoid look.
Restart your car at every stop light.
Hang numerous car-fresheners in the rear-view mirror. Talk to them, stroking them lovingly.
Lob burning things in the windows of smokers who throw their butts out the window.
While stopped at a light, piss out the window/sunroof onto other cars.
Keep at least five cats in the car.
Root (cheer, not snuffle in the mud) for firetrucks.
Stop and collect roadkill.
Throw Spam.
Get in the fast lane and gradually ... slow ... down ... to a stop. Then get out and watch the cars. Throw Spam at them.

Have you been wondering where can you can spend your next vacation? Here's a good one for you. If you live in a cold NY state, getting away from it for a while is what you'll probably be doing. Orlando vacations had a lot offers that your family would love. Don't miss out the fun of the theme parks, the rides and many many more exciting entertainment and adventures you'll have.

Duct tape can cure warts

Posted by Malou at 5/04/2009 08:14:00 AM 0 comments
This might gross you out but here is what I just learned about getting rid of warts. Placing duct tape over warts to get rid of them is not just an old wives' tale. My husband did it and it really works. In addition, duct tape is also very helpful to stop the bleeding when you have a small cut specially when times where you don't carry a first aide kit but of course washing your wounds and taking proper care of it is best to avoid infection.

Orlando vacations

Posted by Malou at 5/02/2009 08:04:00 AM 0 comments
I always love it when we visit my mother and father in law in Ocala Florida. Orlando is just an hour away. What better ways to go for the kids to go to have super fun also getting away from NY state in the winter time is heaven sent. One thing new we experienced is we got up early one morning and it was fun for all of us to try to catch the sand crabs on the beach in the morning. Talk about fun. Our Orlando vacations are always the best being there and not back in New York state with the hustle and bustle of work load seems to make life worth living. Looking forward to our next trip this time. We're spending three weeks there.

Tv stands

I love watching the show on TV wherein they renovate houses and even make customized designs of furniture added up to the inside beauty of the house. What fascinates me more is how they created a remote controlled tv stands according to the homeowners liking. If in case I built something like that I will choose cherry wood as a TV stand. The color makes it look real expensive.

Tropical depression "Dante"

I talked to my sister this morning to see how everyone is doing. You know the feeling when you're away and right there on the other side of the world your loved ones are having tough time and dealing with natures calamity. The only thing that we can do here is pray for their safety. Tropical depression "Dante" had been spotted near Albay wherein my family lived, including some affected places like Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Sorsogon, Catanduanes, Masbate, Burias Island, and Southern Quezon are under signal number 1 right now with 30-60 kph winds . Although residents living in low lying and mountainous areas under signal # 1 are alerted against possible flash floods and landslides appropriate actions are necessary. My sister gave me this web site to see the PAGASA track of the severe weather.

Drug rehab

Posted by Malou at 5/01/2009 07:56:00 AM 0 comments
Poor Tom his wife left the dog died the next day he was driving his new truck to the mall. A big truck slid on ice. The accident started a fire from the cracked battery and he sat there waiting for an ambulance and the fire company. His truck burned to the ground. After leaving the hospital he was in so much pain. The pain pills the doctor gave him just weren't enough so he started taking some drugs that were very addicting. After a few weeks his pain was completely gone but he was hooked on a drug that he didn't want to be on. It seem so easy at the time to take it. My husband happen to run into him and he escorted him after a few days later to a drug rehab. It turned out to take a little longer than he thought but he's finally off the drugs and a lot happier now in life.

Swine influenza

Swine influenza has been all over the news and it had created a lot of panic to everyone for this disease had been roaming to some places already. Fear in our hearts is what we felt. We like outdoor activities and traveling but for this kind of situation being careful is very important. I am not a fanatic but every time we go out I carry hand sanitiser and yesterday I used half bottle of the sanitiser when we go out to work. Washing hands thoroughly are very important to get rid of the germs that we might get contact with. Be careful everyone.

Affordable lingerie

I love my husband so much. He calls me his little princess. He searched high and low for me. I'm so glad he found me. He loves buying affordable lingerie. He likes having me try on different ones and I don't mind because silk against my skin feels so good. After buying quite a few things we found out that red looks the best on me with my black hair. Some of the things are so small it's like not wearing nothing he likes making me happy and in turn I make him happy by wearing the outfits.

Test your memory

Posted by Malou at 4/28/2009 07:38:00 AM 0 comments
Are you frustrated sometimes when you were talking that suddenly you forgot the words that you're suppose to say? I got this excerpt from the book that I was reading recently I thought its fun to share it with you and see how your memory is doing. (l0l!)Ask someone to read aloud a list of four unrelated words, pausing for one second between each. Example: freedom, strawberry, tiger, north, flower, truck, valor, dentist. After memorizing the list, perform an unrelated task. Five minutes later, say the words out loud to your companion. If you missed some, have him/her read them to you again. Five minutes later, repeat the words out loud again and note your score. Do the same 20 minutes after that. Most people will remember all or three of the words. Because inborn memory ability varies and is influenced by age, education and other factors, there's no passing grade on this test. take the test again four to six months later. If your ability to perform the test declines particularly if you're aware of memory problems in the meantime seek an evaluation.

Self defense products

Posted by Malou at 4/17/2009 12:02:00 PM 1 comments
Women are dominated by men when it comes to strength. Women are weak and lack of power to defend themselves. Anywhere in this world you can never always trust the safety around you. No matter where you are the safety of oneself should always be carried in ones mind. In general, you never know who your attacker will be regardless of gender. Being cautious, being alert and a know how to carry and use self defense products would be the best way to fend your attacker.

Breathe some steam

Posted by Malou at 4/17/2009 11:46:00 AM 3 comments
My son finally got over with his high fever but last night he had a congestion. I remember what mama did when we got sick. Traditional home remedy still works and had evidence that it works. So for the quick relief of my son's congestion I did what I learned from my mom. Here's another way of clearing congestion with salt water. Fill a cooking pot about a quarter of the way with water. Bring the water nearly to a boil then add a 3 table spoon of salt. Remove the pot from the heat and place it on a protected table or counter. Drape a towel over your head, lean over the pot and breath the steam. Be careful not to burn yourself. It will help you breath a little easier.

Kitchen faucets

When my stepdaughter had moved in to the house they bought they figured out they're going to spend more money to take care of some of the repairs for their home improvement. From sidings, windows, roofing and some of the interior repairs. Since the major repairs will cost more they started in the little things first. The kitchen wasn't so bad at all except the kitchen faucets which needs immediate action. When my husband examined the problem the faucet rusted out from old age. Putting in a new kitchen faucets makes our daughter so happy.

Bicycle safety

Posted by Malou at 4/17/2009 10:05:00 AM 1 comments
Now that spring is upon us you can see most of the kids in the neighborhood are outdoors playing their favorite games or sometimes you'll see them on their bikes riding around the block. When we go out and ride our bikes with our children we always think of safety first to avoid bicycle injury. By learning a few safety rules and using proper clothing and gear you can avoid an injury.

So here are some of the things we should remind ourselves over and over again before we hop in on our bikes. A few basics to do : Don't wear loose clothing or a long coat; they can get caught in the bicycle chain. Put clips or rubber bands around the bottom of pants legs. When riding at night, wear light colored clothing. Wearing armbands, leg bands, or vests that glow in the dark helps assure that drivers will see you. Always wear a helmet when riding your bike. Follow the safety rules and always use the proper equipment.

Colon cleanser

I always thought that after having my baby I had a little extra weight. It was just normal besides getting a little older. I just thought it was something that I have to deal with. But after fighting my weight for three or four years I went to the doctors for unrelated issue to my weight and he recommended a colon cleanser. I was amazed at what the difference was after I gone through the whole thing. I was actually 9 pounds lighter and now I don't mind putting my swimsuit on and my husband loves it too.

Amazing how different apartment complex cleanings can be. It's an age thing. I think of the different people that are in the apartments. A two bedroom apartment at our senior homes you can clean the total apartment in three and a half hours. But if you go to our other apartment complex with the younger generation I don't think anyone ever taught them what cleanliness is. You can spend upward to nine hours in those apartments versus the other at three and a half hours. Disgusting sometimes. Oh well its our job.

Truck rental

It's the time of the year when green is finally popping out all over, my girlfriend is thankful because it's the best time of the year when her family decided to move out of their rental apartment. They bought a new house close by to where they work. New neighbors, new house, and new people to meet. But she said moving to a new place is not that easy if you don't own a big truck to haul your belonging. They are grateful when they decided to go to a truck rental so they could move their things to their new house.
