A phone call from Maam

T The other day I received a phone call with a number that I didn't recognize. When I answered it I thought the caller was our distant relative who lives in Oklahoma. But I was mistaken. She was actually my teacher in second grade whom I haven't seen in years! I was so surprised and happy to get in contact with Ma'am because she was a very good and intelligent teacher. She is in Chicago. We had a good talk and catching up with those years. I knew that she has been here for quiet a while now, and it just made me happy to get in touch with someone I know from home Philippines. Wouldn't you feel the same with someone from your place that you have not heard from for so long?

Custom t-shirts

I It is common in this place to see people wearing t-shirts bearing some companies’ names. Of course. These custom t-shirts are a good form of advertising since people tend to observe what you wear and read what’s printed on your shirts out of curiosity and attraction to the design. Have you noticed that? And I am just thinking that since Christmas season is coming, these custom t-shirts will do several purposes. We can also give them away as gifts to our loyal customers or to the new clients for them to come back to us since we show something different about the company or your business. Well, it is an effective marketing that I have witnessed on those businesses giving t-shirts away. It makes the customers happy, and that is what we are up to in order for us to gain more. But it does not benefit them only because people would be proud of the shirts and advertise your company themselves, or promote your brands or products. I found this website that offers 25% Off T-shirts (promo code TShirts25). Isn’t that great? I know Vistaprint.com majors in this printing stuff that we just don’t get discount this Christmas, but also you will get your message clear.

Heart to heart

It is very important for us to take good care of our health specially our heart. Our heart works so hard 24/7. It always pumps blood through out our body. It will just stop beating when we are already dead. It deserves to give extra care of it.

For a healthy heart, the following foods are recommended:

a) Fish - especially fatty (such as pilchards and mackerel), for your Omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce high blood pressure.
b) Garlic - reduces blood pressure, cholesterol, and the risk of blood clots.
c) Vitamin E - can prevent arterial blockage. Vitamin E is found in green vegetables, wholegrain cereals, egg yolks and wheat-germ.
d) Water - vital for the whole body to function properly.
e) Tea - can lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
f) Alcohol - LIMITED intake can increase good cholesterol (HLD) and reduce the risk of blood clots.

My recipes

I I have been collecting good recipes and to reinforce it, hubby purchased about twenty cookbooks for me. Do you think it’s too much? If he would only hand me the pot :-D I appreciate it because they are not just ordinary cookbooks, but they have all the recipes that I have been looking for from my home country and the Filipino-American food recipes. If you’re not into cookbooks, let’s go online to get all kinds of recipes for all occasions at myrecipes.com. That is the website for family recipes. I found and learned new recipes and ideas from there and hubby also sent me some of his favorites for me to try.

The creek

the creek

N Not much of a water flowing, but this creek has been dry for almost two years. It took a hurricane for this to come back to life again. I don't know, perhaps I just love creeks and rivers for natural reasons, and I was just happy to see the flowing water on this creek again. There is also another creek, a bigger one, that runs parallel with this one, but it has running water, sometimes stagnant, it is because there are dams built on some sections, beaver dams, that is. So somewhere along the line some beaver dams have been overflowed for this small quiet creek to be alive again.

Sex or sleep?

Sex or sleep?

I I go with 'and'. I came across this article in CNN about the six relationship decisions that they have made for you, as if you have not decided yourself. Honestly I don't buy all article advices I read for many are just too liberal or out of the traditional core values we learned while growing up. Do couples need a reason to have sex tonight? Exhausted? But one thing that is true and I agree with is that according to a relationship therapist, Linda Young, that "Your resistance might be a reflection of your lack of satisfaction with the sex. Or your fear of intimacy, your performance anxiety, your anger about something else in the relationship -- the point being that sexual unhappiness can be a shield for many other types of issues". Too bad, but sometimes it is taken as revenge for something.

Missing Ashi

I I am mourning! Last August 25th I was trying to get the notes for the song "Love Lifted Me" by playing it with my flute. I think I got the correct notes. But what made that day special was that my cat, Ashi, was sitting on my lap while I was playing the instrument, I wrote about it on my notebook. Now I need that something to lift me. I have just buried my cat Ashi, beside my dear old one Ladygishi's grave. I know something is wrong with this place that no pets would last as they will be runover. I am so sad, so sad and so upset.

Juicing in good for you

We all know we need to eat lots of fresh fruit and veg. Six portions a day is a frequently mentioned 'recommended dose'. It sounds like hard work, but juicing makes it (not literally!) a piece of cake.

Juicers come in many shapes and sizes and cost anywhere between a few hundred and a few thousand rand.

Some of those who juice choose only fruit. Others choose only vegetables. Many choose a mixture of fruit and veg. We suggest you try and add at least some veg.

A typical combo might consist of a pear, a peach, an orange, an apple, a carrot and a stick of celery or a beetroot. This will produce a large, delicious and healthy glass of juice. And it will cover your fresh fruit and veg needs for the whole day.

A couple of words of warning:
• Remove hard pips before feeding the fruit into your juicer. Peach, apricot and mango pips are almost bound to destroy your juicer.
• Some fruits are too 'gooey' and may clog your juicer. Pears just pass the test as do small portions of mango. Bananas FAIL the test. Don't worry, 'gooey' will not destroy your juicer and you will soon learn.

Can you sleep while the wind blows?

A friend of mine sent this to me today, and I enjoyed it so much, that I wanted to share it to you.
It is just timely because just recently we experienced hurricanes. I really like the moral of this story. It is really true to us. I hope you enjoy your day and you sleep well.

Years ago, a farmer owned land along the Atlantic seacoast.
He constantly advertised for hired hands. Most people were
reluctant to work on farms along the Atlantic. They dreaded the
awful storms that raged across the Atlantic, wreaking havoc on the buildings and crops.
As the farmer interviewed applicants for the job, he received
A steady stream of refusals.

Finally, a short, thin man, well past middle age, approached
the farmer. "Are you a good farm hand?" the farmer asked him.
"Well, I can sleep when the wind blows," answered the little man.

Although puzzled by this answer, the farmer, desperate for help,
Hired him. The little man worked well around the farm, busy from
dawn to dusk, and the farmer felt satisfied with the man's work.
Then one night the wind howled loudly in from offshore.
Jumping out of bed, the farmer grabbed a lantern and rushed
next door to the hired hand's sleeping quarters. He shook the
little man and yelled, "Get up! A storm is coming!
Tie things down before they blow away!"
The little man rolled over in bed and said firmly, "No
sir. I told you, I can sleep when the wind blows."

Enraged by the response, the farmer was tempted to fire him on
the spot. Instead, he hurried outside to prepare for the storm.
To his amazement, he discovered that all of the haystacks had
been covered with tarpaulins. The cows were in the barn, the chickens
were in the coops, and the doors were barred.
The shutters were tightly secured. Everything was tied down.

Nothing could blow away. The farmer then understood what his
hired hand meant, so he returned to his bed to also sleep while
the wind blew.

Moral of this story:

When you're prepared, spiritually, mentally, and physically,
you have nothing to fear. Can you sleep when the
wind blows through your life?
The hired hand in the story was able to sleep because he
had secured the farm against the storm.
We secure ourselves against the storms of life by
grounding ourselves in the Word of God.
We don't need to understand, we just need to hold
His hand to have peace in the middle of storms.

Reflections of 911

Another year to remember the most tragic happenings in 911. We still remember the people who lost their lost their lives. A time to reflect...

Years have come and gone,
Since the towers came down...
Yet nothing is settled,
No peace to be found.

Seems like the efforts,
Made to this date,
Cannot resolve,
Our grief and our fate.

There are still questions there,
With no answers yet found,
Though grass replaces
The rubble from the ground.

The grief that we feel,
Is still fresh and so strong,
Despite all the 'answers'
For what really went wrong.

It seems that the mourning,
Is greater today,
That time does not heal,
Nor make it go way.

911 was a wakeup,
To a nation off guard,
Grief is not easy,
Forgiveness is hard.

So that each day now passes,
With no end in sight,
We remain in our mourning,
Still sealed with that plight.

We pray for the peace,
That only healing brings,
Proudly tell the rest of the world,
That Freedom still rings.

The best Amusement Park in New Jersey

We belong to a large family. We grew up together through the good times and the bad times. But now we are not intact anymore. Some of the family members are already married and have their own families. My sister is working abroad so it is so seldom we can be together now. As I can remember, one of the great memories we had was our family beach vacation at Morey’s Piers. It was like heaven for us. We really had a wonderful time especially in the amusement rides which is on of Wildwood attractions. It was a perfect place to be to have fun and excitement. The water parks were my favourite. It was so amazing. We had fun with their weekly special offers. They have different exciting events everyday. We had a great time at the hotel where we had our accommodation. Everything was perfect. Those were the days where we just wanted to stay there forever.
My sister is coming from Dubai this October so we already planned to have our reunion at Morey’s Piers. We are all excited and can’t wait to have all the fun again. We will cherish our memories there for the rest of our lives. They are the best.

20 ways to save money

I think we really need to do some things to save our money so that we will be able to manage our finances wisely, especially now everything is so expensive. The key to saving is to spend less than you earn. For this, we need a budget. When we know exactly how much money we have and where it should go, we’re much more likely to achieve our goal. I found it very helpful.

1.) Make a grocery list and follow it. Just go straight for those necessities and not allowing yourself to be diverted.
2.) It is wise not to shop on an empty stomach to avoid impulse buying.
3.) Set aside a percentage of your monthly income as savings. Whether it’s five or ten percent doesn’t matter. What’s most important is that it’s an amount that with only minimum discomfort you can do without.
4.) Open a separate savings account. If you mix your savings with our other monies, you’ll almost certainly touch your savings and be unable to put them back.
5.) Store unexpected earnings.
6.) Bank that loose change in a piggybank.
7.) Pay back your withdrawals.
8.) Make withdrawals from your bank’s ATM.
9.) Return rented videos on time.
10.) Make long- distance calls during non-peak hours.

11.) Pay your amortizations on time.
12.) Make do with basic telephone service.
13.) Make do without cable television.
14.) Buy classic dresses, which never go out of style.
15.) Cut back on expensive dinners out.
16.) Befriend the shoe repairman.
17.) Hold back on those credit cards.
18.) Do it yourself.
19.) Pamper yourself.
20.) Personalized it.

Knowing your mystery caller

H How would you react when a strange number is calling your phone? Naturally we would want to know the background and the details like the names and the addresses of the callers, for it is really disturbing to our peace of mind. Just recently my curiosity was at peak. I wanted to know who are the owners of the numbers that are registered in the phone and as to why the number is in the phone bill. So I did a research. We can search industriously in the phone book if the mystery numbers are listed, but the most practical way to do to know the names behind the phone numbers is by reverse phone lookup service.

reverse phone lookup In the United States and Canada, Caller Base.com provides the phone search service where we can do a lookup for the owner's name and address from the database for any telephone and cell phone numbers, confidentially. There I discovered whose calls I missed and who are the mystery people behind the strange numbers. Knowing them really can put us at peace because sometimes they not only trouble us, but also leave us in the disadvantage. From now on there will be no more mystery phone numbers, when it is unknown, consult Caller Base.com reverse phone lookup service.

On-site news and information

gusty winds

W While "waiting" for the hurricane Gustav days before it was supposed to make a landfall, I was all out watching The Weather Channel for updates, for nothing is better than knowledge and first hand information in times like these natural disasters than from direct from the experts. It was actually no Lifetime movies for me; (why men don't like that channel? I wonder :-D). Anyway, I am grateful for the information which are helpful than hearing gossips and false information from folks. I watched it actually until we lost electricity and that was when Gustav already hit southern Louisiana. It was really so much better seeing the actual events, but what was striking for me was those meteorologists reporting on sites, still reporting even when it means they would almost be blown by gusty winds, even when it means their upper bodies would be positioned horizontally, legs standing feet apart. Theirs is a noble public service job, appreciated and prayed for for their safety, and ours.

After hurricane

I I am not afraid to die; (are you?) I know where I am going. But the little voice of my human nature said "not yet", not in this circumstance, not in this land. For I know that natural disasters may claim lives and damage homes. But as I told my sister, "as long as the ground, the house, and oh, don't forget the roof, remain attached, everything will be fine. Other than that, I was excited for the hurricane; that kind of excitement when you are ready for something, if you know what I mean, despite the factor of the unknown.

hurricane gustavBut hurricane Gustav had passed, and thanks to God there were no considerable damage, well we had just one tree that was uprooted, and one pine bending the small pit fence. We were out of electricity since Monday night, and also water and telephone service. I was living in the backward life using traditional lights and self entertaining. But living in the dark I was able to do things that is helpful for me, and with that I am grateful. It was priceless. We just got the electricity back tonight and it is a very great relief after four day shut down. Everything is back to normal now, hope we will be Ike-spared. Oh no.

Happy feet shoe tips

Our feet is one of the most important parts of our body that needs our pampering. Our feet are the ones carrying our body wherever we want to go. As much as possible I always take good care of my feet by for example, I buy shoes that fits my feet well.
A shoes that fits well can prevent many common foot problem. Here’s advise from medical professionals:
• Shop for shoes in the end of the day when your feet have swelled from hours of standing and walking. Buy athletic shoes within an hour of exercising.
• Don’t buy shoes that aren’t comfortable right out of the box. Odds are they won’t get better.
• Make sure there is a half-inch space from the tip of your longest toe to the end of the shoe.
• Try on both shoes. Your feet aren’t identical, soothe mate of a shoe that feels fine on one foot many not fit the other.
• Recognize when workout shoes are worn out. Put your shoes on a counter top and look at them from behind. If they’re rolling inward or outward, or the tread is worn down, replace them. They’re no longer giving you adequate support or shock absorption.
• Avoid women’s dress shoes with a heel of more than two inches in height. If you’ve had pain in the ball of your foot, stick with one-inch heels or lower.

Need a cash advance for your business?

Business has a great advantage when it is compared to working in a company. When you work as an employee, you have to cope up with your boss and all your co-workers. Your income is just only from your monthly salary. Unlike having your own business, you are the boss.

When you handle your business well you will have a high income from your profit. I never know of someone who gets rich by just working as an employee. When you are good in business management you will a successful businessman or business woman. Not all business though is thriving.

I have a friend who owns a buy and sell business and accepts credit cards from her customers. She wants to open up another business branch but the problem is she doesn’t have enough cash in order to pursue it. She was looking for a company that offers business cash advance but to no avail.

Someone told her about Online Check that they are helping fund business by their merchant cash advance program. They are committed to help whatever your business needs.
She is considering it because it is very easy to apply and it has no application fee or collateral needed. She gets so excited all about it and can’t wait to expand her business with ease.

Back to basics Foodwise

As our economy is getting worse, we should do the best we can in order to save money and do not throw out things that can still be used. Poverty is one of the biggest problems in the world especially to the third world countries. Food is the basics for us to survive. That is why we need to be wise.

Factors to consider when deciding which food to buy, and how to prepare it, and eat it:

Where possible, reasonable, feasible and sensible, eat food as close to its natural state as possible. For example:
• 'Picked five minutes ago' is better than picked hours ago, which is better than picked today and much better than picked last week.
• Raw is better than cooked, especially better than over-cooked.
• Generally, fresh is better than frozen which is better than tinned.
• Frozen last week is better than frozen six months ago.
• Produced locally is better than imported from around the world.
• Grown organically is better than grown using pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilizers.
• And try and eat as wide a range of fresh food as possible.

Full Time Carpal Tunnel Relief

Full Time Carpal Tunnel ReliefTwo days ago, I started to feel pain in my wristand it radiated in to my hand. I just ignore it at first because I thought the pain will be gone but it did not. So I just massaged it and rubbed some liniment oil in it. It soothed the pain temporarily. After I was typing in my computer, it started to hurt again. I did not realize that I am having a Carpal Tunnel syndrome not until I done research.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is condition of pain and weakness in the hand caused by repetitive compression of a nerve that passes through the wrist into the hand. It is common for the people who are frequently using their hands like typing, sewing, driving, painting, writing and etc.

Healthy vs. Happy
