Ever since I’ve known Ellen – I am an avid fan of her. I was still in PH that time when I first borrowed a DVD and played it (year 2005). From then on, I am always happy listening to her and reading about her good life. And these days, what fascinates me is when she gave a nice tip to this pizza guy in which I read from this permalink – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/04/oscars-pizza-man-tip_n_4895657.html?ir=Small+Business&ref=topbar. I hope everybody is like this so that people would be happy in their work. I know there are many people who are practicing their generosities but what if the whole world will do it. I bet this would change the world into a better place to live with. (Thanks to Ellen for being so kind – as always.)
In this economy that we have today, there are many ways to save. One of the things is to have any of these Generator Conversion Kits wherein you can ask a company to install if for you or you can do the installations by your own self. There are many available products in the market but when you want to try one, do check Century Fuel Products as well. These products might be the one that you are looking for. For you to know if this is the one, you know the best thing that you will do then (it’s like buy and test it if you like). It says that these conversion kits help you “convert a gasoline generator to use propane and or natural gas”. Want to learn more? If you do want to learn more about this, do visit the company’s website.
This was my first change oil for my vehicle this month. I opted to visit the nearby auto shop after knowing that the car dealer of where my husband bought this was closed early. I paid more than $80 bucks because I chose the premium oil. I waited there for more about 20 minutes with me observing the mechanic of how to change oil. Even if it was cold near the repair bay, it did not bother me because I learned something new and that’s about my vehicle. After the change oil, I got my free wiper fluid and free automatic car wash. There should be another free thing – like a coffee but I did not ask one. Well, maybe the next time, I would have change oil, I will ask for free coffee but I will try to visit the car dealer and see if they will offer me a cheaper price compared to this auto shop that I chose this year.
Where will I start? Okay this is about blogging and my life. I started blogging way back middle of 2007 when a good friend (she’s my angel in blogging) of mine told me that blogging was the source of her income and it’s the reason why she couldn’t reply to my messages as quickly as she could. So, I pondered about it and thought that if I would make my own blog, I also can earn something like her. During that time, it was a bit hard for me because I didn’t know where to start. Imagine that I started creating my blog August and was successful October of that year but mixed with sweat and tears because when I create one site, I would delete it because I didn’t know what I was doing. Until December came and I received one of my offer in which I get compensated on January 2008 for about $2 and I jumped for joy. When my other half knew about it, he said to me “Can you live in that amount for six months?” My answer was “At least I’ve proven that blogging is true.”
In year 2008, I’ve created more than 10 blogs and kept on spreading the words about the good side of blogging and or creating a personal online diary. This time, I taught my friends and relatives about the goodness of having blogs. For those who are listening, they get the best results and they are earning. At the same time, they are helping advertisers in any possible ways they can because they can easily write any good stuff for those good business owners.
The World Wide Web is one of the best ways for people to keep in touch and to do business in a good way. It is like helping each other across the globe, communicating, doing some reviews, making friends, promoting products and services, and many more. But of course, blogging and earning on the internet is made possible by good paid blogging companies which are true to their clients and to their online freelance writers or bloggers. There are many paid blogging companies that exists but few will remain as the time pass by. The one that will remain are the companies which have the heart in connecting their advertisers and freelance writers. These companies are the one which have good compensation on their online writers as well as maintain a good business connection with all of their advertisers.
So, this is a part of my story as a blogger! Thank you for reading! May you will be blessed with more every day!
3 Little Piggies & Big Bad Wolf – Interactive Story Book and Fun Games for Kids
This is one of the great interactive apps for all ages especially for babies and kids. My 30 months old daughter and my 7 year old son love watching this many times over. They said that they like the names of the little piggies and they find it so cute. They also love all the nice colors and everything in this interactive story book. My son loves the “read myself” button along with listen & play while my daughter loves the auto play as she just want to see the piggies move and talk. Whenever the wolf would show up, both of them would cream out so loudly. This is such a wonderful app and I would recommend this to parents who want an interactive book for their babies and kids.
Are you a strong high school bowler who wants eventually to go to college? If you are, you may want to consider an option many don’t even realize exists: bowling scholarships. Although we tend to think of basketballs, baseballs, and footballs in terms of college scholarships, a bowlingball can pay for your education just as well if you know how go about it. Here are a few tips on college bowling scholarships that could pay off –literally—as you or your kid prepares to apply for college.
Get Into League Play
Many experts agree the best place to start looking for college money in bowling is in your local league play. Many of these organizations at the local and state levels have money set aside for scholarships and you (or your kid if a parent is reading this) need to be involved to be considered. Keep in mind, these scholarship committees will usually be looking at academic performance, community service, and other factors in addition to bowling prowess, so applicants need to be well-rounded candidates for serious consideration.
NCAA and Other Scholarships
In the NCAA, the prospects are far better for women student bowlers than men. There are currently 43 member schools in the NCAA that offer women’s bowling scholarships (in Division 1 and 2). Only two schools within the NCAA offer scholarships in bowling for men. Still, there are a lot of options for the men in other organizations. The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) offers a host of financial assistance for bowlers, both men and women, and 24 NJCAA schools have bowling teams. The catch is that the NJCAA doesn’t offer sports scholarships, so coaches use other enticements like academic scholarships and other incentives to attract top bowling talent.
Get Educated about Scholarships, then Go Get Your Education
There is a wealth of information available today online to help sort out all the finer points of the opportunities available in bowling scholarships. A search at collegescholarships.org reveals the top four bowling schools are considered to be Wichita State University; University of Nebraska; New Jersey City University; and Vanderbilt University. Those schools will attract the very best student bowlers, but should be on anybody’s short list to consider.
There is an old joke where somebody asks “How do I get to Carnegie Hall?” and they are told, “Practice!” In a similar vein, the surest way to get a bowling scholarship is through practice, practice, practice. Novice bowlers all the way through top pros will find all their bowling supplies—and more—available at http://www.bowlingballs.com.
Thanks to the heroic catch of the airport guard to a baby that fall from the table – http://tv.yahoo.com/daytime/dint-airport-security-catches-falling-194007353.html. Seeing the video I was like, OMG, that person was the Angel of the baby at that moment. I could say that God is always good all the time and anywhere. God bless that guard and that baby.
There are several reasons why you might need to find information about a company. For example, if you’re in the job market, you want to know as much as you can about prospective employers before an interview, and consumers like to research products and services before they buy. The type of information you can find about a company depends in part on whether it’s a public or a private company.
A private company doesn’t sell shares publicly and it isn’t registered with the NYSE, so sometimes it’s difficult to glean much information beyond the name, physical address, phone number and web address. What you find above the information that a private company chooses to divulge on their website is based on searching online databases. The fact that a company is privately held doesn’t necessarily mean anything sinister. It simply means that they have no need or desire to sell shares to the public; many fine and upstanding businesses are private companies. Publicly held companies are held to a different standard of transparency. They must register with the Stock Exchange and file financial reports to the SEC on a quarterly basis. Depending on the industry, they may also have to register with other governing boards that regulate companies in their sphere. All of this information is freely available to the general public from a variety of sources.
Some other differences between public and private companies are:
1. The number of members. Private companies can consist of as little as two people, where public companies must have at least seven members. Public companies can have as many members as they want, but private companies are limited to 50 current members, total.
2. The number of directors. The minimum number for a public company is three directors, for a private company, it’s only two. There are also legal restrictions in the appointment of directors of public companies.
3. Public companies must have a formal statutory meeting and file a report on that meeting with the register.
4. Managers of public companies can’t by paid more than 11 percent of the company’s net profits; there are no restrictions on private company management remuneration.
Some places to look for information on any type of corporate entity include search engine listings, social networking sites, industry association listings and corporate review sites. There are websites that are similar to social networking sites and are predominately used for listing information about companies and business persons of interest. These sites are used mainly for the purposes of expanding business contacts; call them social networking sites for businesses, if you will.
TrueCar Businessweek is an example of the kind of information you can find about private or public companies on websites that specialize in listing corporate profiles. This particular listing provides an overview of a private company that provides a service to a specific consumer niche: new car buyers. The information lets potential readers know the type of information they can find in this online publication, the physical location of its headquarters, the phone number and web address and the year the company was founded. It also lists news articles that mention the company, so you can browse and read further on your own.

This post brought to you by Netflix. All opinions are 100% mine.
There are people who find the adventures of their lives outside their homes, like they will go from different places, shopping, mingling with friends in different scenic views, and more. On the other hand, there are also other people also who want to just spend their quality time inside their homes cooking, doing chores, watching favorite TV shows – movies, playing with kids, and many more.
Speaking of favorite movies, there are people who will spend big just to have premium channels from their favorite cable companies. There are many people also who are wise when it comes to their entertainment packages and they chose to have Netflix subscription. They said that in this way they can have big savings. And they are true. I personally love Netflix. I am even following them and I did Like Netflix on Facebook so that I will know some promos and new movies. I also do Follow @Netflix in Twitter. And that would include that I do Follow Netflix on Pinterest. In this way, I am one of the many who will know their whereabouts and their new stuffs.
On this Holiday
On these holidays, having Netflix is one of the best choices. It is easy to view movies and favorite entertainment anywhere, like in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, outside the house, and even including in the bathroom. As for me, I do love watching Netflix in my laptop whenever I am in the kitchen cooking some yummy foods for my family, especially now that they partnered with Chef Curtis Stone (a celebrity chef).
How about you?
Do you want to save on your entertainment bills also? If you are, do check Netflix. You will not just be saving on electricity bills, but you can watch it anywhere you may be. Inside your home or even when you are on mobile. Like when you are traveling to distant places, or having groceries, or waiting for some appointments, you can easily entertain yourself with Netflix.
When talking about foods and cooking with celebrity Chef Curtis Stone, I do love this recipe – Red’s Orange White Russian. Here is the recipe for that:
Red’s Orange White Russian
The Chef said this: “I couldn’t resist creating a recipe inspired by the character Red on the Netflix hit show “Orange is the New Black”…she is a chef, after all. This version of the classic White Russian cocktail includes orange liqueur and orange zest. Orange truly is the new black!”
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Make-Ahead: This cocktail is best served as soon as it is made.
1/4 cup Kahlúa
2 tablespoons vodka
1 tablespoon Cointreau
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 navel orange
1. Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. Add the Kahlúa, vodka, and Cointreau and gently stir to blend.
2. Pour the cream over so that it floats on top of the Kahlúa mixture. Using a fine grater, grate some orange zest on top. Serve immediately.
Aside from the cooking shows that I love, the most important role of Netflix for my family and me is the cartoon movies in which almost the whole day and night, my kids love to watch. My husband’s favorite shows are the series movies in which he would just be the one watching it in the room because it’s all Sci Fi movies.
What are my plans for these holidays with Netflix?
Since I am not the boss of my home, it would be my kids who would hug Netflix most of the time. But if they will take their naps, that would be the best time for me to watch my favorite shows especially the cooking shows. I do love Netflix for the reason that I can watch my favorite shows anywhere and anytime I want. Best of all, Netflix brings savings to my wallet.
How about you?
Are you a Netflix subscriber too? What are your experiences with using Netflix? Did you have the same satisfaction like I have or even more?
I am going to make my day as my best day ever! This would be my motto in my life. The present is my only gift from God in which I can share it with my family as well as with my friends and acquaintances. And I do not want to miss any seconds of it by doing and thinking negative things. I do love my present coz I believe it would be the reason for my happiest and prosperous future. With God’s blessings, today is my best day ever!
Buying a house is a big financial step. Building your own little house, on your own block of land, is all part of the Australian dream. Home builders like Coral Homes make it a daily habit to turn dreams like this into reality. However, if you can’t – or don’t want to – build your house from scratch, then it’s important you thoroughly inspect your potential new home: the last thing you’d want is to be confronted with sudden (and expensive) surprises after you’ve already signed the contract, and footed the bill. To help you make the right purchase, and to help prevent you from ever feeling even a tinge of buyers remorse, take note of these 5 things to look for before committing to buying a home.
1. Check the ceilings are not sagging.
Before signing on the dotted line, and owning a new home, look up at the ceiling inside the house. If you find that it’s sagging or drooping in any way, either ask for it to be repaired, or look elsewhere. (You can use a torch to help you see any protrusions.) A sagging ceiling can ultimately collapse if not fixed. And installing a new ceiling is not cheap. Also, living in a home without a ceiling for any amount of time isn’t pleasant at all, and so it’s best to avoid being in this situation if you can.
2. Check for cracks on walls.
If you find any cracks that are greater than 2mm in width, you should be concerned. This is a red herring that something structurally may be very wrong. And fixing something that’s structurally wrong is expensive, time-consuming and frustrating indeed. Avoid like the plague.
3. Check for mold in the bathroom.
Not only is mold unsightly, but it could signal something much more problematic, such as a water leak from a nearby pipe. You’ll need to cut out the entire section of wall that’s affected, and then possibly fix your pipes. Not an easy job at all. Check for mold first and you should be okay.
4. Check for water stains.
Water stains are costly to repair. In the same way that mold can signal something wrong behind the walls, a water stain suggests that something is leaking and you may need to cut open the wall to find out. Make sure you do a full, preliminary inspection of the house you’re thinking of buying to ensure that no sneaky water stained walls are around any corner in your home.
5. Check the inside of roof gutters.
Even aluminum gutters – which are corrosion resistant and fair well under the elements – can deteriorate over time. Have a look on the roof of your prospective home, and make sure the gutters are in decent condition before handing over all your money. This will save you money in having to install new guttering.
Choosing the right home for you and your family is not easy. It often involves months of research, tons of in-house visits, and lots of talking on the phone: to the agent, to your significant other, and to your bank. Keep the above 5 things in mind when you’re about to purchase your home. And hopefully you’ll make a decision you’re proud of for many years to come.

Have you read the – http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/12/01/21710134-jeff-bezos-tells-amazon-customers-to-expect-home-delivery-by-drones?lite and watch its video? If not yet, you better check it out. The drone is so cute flying in the air and delivered a package. If I read it right, the news said that it will be this 2015 that amazon will try out to deliver package through drones – unmanned robot. I hope I am one who will be chosen to receive a package and the robot will land at my yard. It would be so cool mostly when I will receive a package as a gift even if I would not have an order. He-he!
So you have decided to buy a place, or rent, or move in with a friend or loved one. Whichever way it goes you are going to need a new bed and with that a new mattress to put on it. Here are some things you might want to look for to get what you need for the best nights sleep possible.
Warranty and Longevity
Its more important how long your new mattress is going to last, and how long it is going to be comfortable for than how much it costs. You need things that will last for as long as possible. It might be worth forking out an extra couple of hundred dollars for the sake of keeping yourself comfortable for as long as possible. Especially because this is going to be a matter of a decade rather than a couple of years.
You need something that will be supportive rather than just hard or soft. While softness is nice you also need something that will keep you healthy, will cradle your back and massage against your muscles to keep you feeling all right. If you have things like back problems, spinal twinges or muscle issues its even more important that you find something that is both soft enough to be comfortable and firm enough to support you. A latex mattress is something to consider here as they’re form fitting but also comfortable.
Supplementary and Accompanying Products
Does your mattress need a protector? If so what kind? How thick and waterproof does it need to be for the safety of the mattress? These are the kinds of questions someone buying a new mattress needs to be able to answer. Determine what kind of bed frame your mattress needs, what supports, if its only compatible with its own brand and how easy these products will be to replace if anything breaks.
Medical Issue Compatibility
There are some mattresses that have benefits to certain diseases, allergies and issues and some that are bad for them. So if you have any allergies or if you just have weak lungs or problems in certain parts of your body you need to do your research. You need to know what mattresses are better for back pain and what level of softness you need. Research is key.
Who You are Buying From
Its important to know the reputation and nature of the people you buy from. Do not buy a mattress of ebay or from another person. Go to a proper reputable mattress seller. Check out their policies, what they offer and what current users are saying about them. If you know your seller, you know your product
The informed choice is almost always the best choice. Figure out every detail, from the most to least important and make the best decision you can, for comfort, for value, for your health. With a few simple steps you can get twenty years of comfort out of a single mattress.

There will be some sort of field trip this week. I did not sign up yet but I will surely sign up for it since it will just be within the city of where I am living. I hope my homeschool kid will enjoy this so called ice skating for the whole school. I cannot join him in the skating rink since I need to be with my baby girl. But even if there would be someone who will attend to my baby girl, I will still not join him since I do not know how to use the ice skate. He-he-he!
This was taken at Pueblo Ice Arena last year’s field trip (2012). I will be posting new photos then for ice skating 2013.
Teenage girls are unpredictable, wonderful beings, switching between peaceful creatures one day, to contrary divas the next. The kiss of death for any parental bedroom designer? Assuming she’s still your princess or a princess at all, and pink unicorns and butterflies decorate her daydreams; she’s still little and wide-eye, right? You need to shield her from the world – only, she’s probably more aware of certain facets than you are. Instead of directing her to this option or that, use this time to find out more about your daughter, as she is now and who she wants to become. A bedroom is an oasis, a space reflecting our personalities and inner thoughts, our interests and quirks; a room where you can be you, as chaotic or organised as that may be.
Colour Her World
What is her favourite shade on the colour chart? Purple, green, blue, pink, red, orange…Feature walls have long become a design element for teenage bedrooms (and adult ones as well), drawing our eyes and furthering an ambience created by carefully chosen accessories and flourishes. If she has two colours she can’t decide on – after all, who has just one favourite? – feel free to clash and blend shades, experimenting with swatches and complementing hues. Unless she really loves pink, try to avoid this garish colour; as much as she loves it now, she might grow out of it in her later teens, embarrassed by its rosiness. After the paint is dry and even, take her shopping for a few colour matched embellishments – throw rugs, pillows, curtains, candles etc all add a hint of personality without overwhelming the space.
Don’t Be Afraid to Clash
Do you wince at the thought of mixing florals with neons, pastels with baroque swirls and red with yellow? It may be time to let go of your addiction to uniformity. If your daughter is a bit eclectic, very adventurous and delights in the mismatched world of unique furniture and decorations, don’t be afraid to break the rules. Be bold, be creative; mix, match and layer bright, subdued and in your face colours, tones, linen and accessories. It might sound jumbled and overwhelming, and it can be, if you don’t do it right – strategic chaos requires placement, patience and a keen eye for the big picture, as the final design works piece by piece, without crowding the overall concept.
Shoebox Design – Small Rooms, Big Ideas
Working with a small room can be a nightmare, particularly as your daughter’s life flows from play dates to romantic dates, from sleep overs to rom com parties and a shred of study to punctuate the social atmosphere that she now resides in, online and off. Places like Bunkers can offer some sophisticated space saving choices, from the classic to the modern; the idea of bunks is not new or particularly innovative in itself, though new hutch, storage and study designs are a god send in a tiny apartment or bedroom.
Ultimately, your daughter will want a space that resonates with her, somewhere she feels comfortable, a place to lie back and chill. Bedroom design doesn’t rate in the parenting magazine or self-help books, as it’s probably something you will do together once or twice, but make no mistake, this process can draw you closer together as similarities come out. You may have lost your little girl, but a wonderful young woman has taken her place.

This is not my home and this is not my living room. This is the beautiful place of my cousin who is living in Las Vegas. With this picture, I can tell that she is a red lover. I thought that she is a blue lover like me. Though, I guess that this color is the color of her baby girl. Anyway, she’s inviting me to visit in her place and my reply is that I will visit her soon. I know when I will be there I can stay free at her place since she has a very huge new home. I also do love to enjoy in her huge swimming pool. Hope to see her and her family maybe next year!
A successful restaurant does not come down to luck, chance, or working hard and extra long hours. It’s about following a formula that will guarantee success and provide your customers with a great restaurant experience. Shopfitters Brisbane knows how much you want your customers to continue eating your food, so have created the perfect formula for a great restaurant experience.
Four Critical Success Factors
Four major critical success factors are extremely important in providing a great restaurant experience for your customers. These include food, service, environment, and location. By using all parts of this formula, you will set yourself up succeed, and most of all, make as much money as you can.
Think of your food as the foundation stones of your restaurant. No matter how inviting your ambience is, if your food isn’t at its highest standard, and isn’t consistently good, you won’t get many customers. With any restaurants comes fierce competition, so if you don’t consistently deliver the same high level of quality with every single meal, you’ll be quickly replaced by a better and more experienced restaurant down the street.
Many restaurant owners misunderstand the value of good, wholesome service. They believe that as long as their food is good, it doesn’t matter how curt the waiters are with their customers. This is where they fail! Good service is the essence of a fantastic restaurant experience, and even makes the food taste better! A restaurant might be clean and in a great location, but without excellent service it’s likely to fail. Train your wait staff to interact with your customers, and set a good example for them. Greet your guests and introduce yourself.
Even if your restaurant is part of a chain, it is important to make it unique and stand out against the rest. Making sure it is clean and allowing customers to see staff clean it regularly, is a great way to create a healthy environment. Remember to continuously empty the bin so it is never full, play the music is at an acceptable level, and keep the bathrooms extra clean. A clean environment is an invitation to come back.
If you are a new business and scouring for places to open up your restaurant, it is very important to choose the right location that will reflect your food and the atmosphere you want to create. Obviously, it pays to have the best spot in town, but mediocre places can work if you make your restaurant stand out from all the rest. Chose a spot where you know the restaurant will become popular and profitable, and make sure it’s easy to access. Nobody wants to travel up five flights of stairs for a mediocre meal! A good restaurant becomes a great one by following these four steps to success. The food, service, environment, and the location of a restaurant is extremely important to make sure your customers continue to return time and time again!
I like to watch the shows wherein Selena Gomez was still a kid as she was so cute. With her voice, she’s a girl that got the talent. She’s also smart. Most of all, she’s good person whom most of the kids and teenagers can look upon. She can be a good role model to young ones. I hope she would stay that way and I hope she wouldn’t change her image. If she will change her image, I hope it would be for the better.
An event planner goes to great lengths to design fashionable atmospheres that adds ambiance to an occasion. The ability to create a space that allows people to celebrate life events is a special skill that enhances celebratory moments. The planner needs to carefully craft a unique environment that exhibit personal tastes of the clients and adds elements of class and style. The successful event coordinator needs to have knowledge on how to locate premium celebration locations to hold the event and resources for finding decor that turn the gathering into a memorable occasion. With the right touches of sleek designs and personal touches, a prosperous event planner can craft a showcase that highlights the special moment.
Obtaining a reliable source that offers a wide range of products is crucial for event planning success. Companies that offer a broad selection of materials, such as www.zappobz.com, provide planning professionals an opportunity to craft unique parties with minimal efforts. Click here to see how one company is able to provide extensive support and ideas on a company website. Successful event organizers need to have a number of these types of design inspirations at hand in order to effectively meet the needs of customers. These tools will help in the creation of a magical moment for the clientele.
An important aspect of managing an event planning company is the ability to obtain needed items at reasonable prices. Utilizing suppliers of party materials that have a variety of options to assist party creation is important for fiscal success. Distributors can work with the planner to provide bulk purchasing options, the ability to acquire needed items quickly, and customization features that allow the planner to make each event unique. A supplier that understands the needs of event planners is a wonderful resource for the challenges of maintaining the business.
Event planners are busy professionals that need to arrange multiple obligations with a minimum of time. A supply resource that allows the organizer to browse available products and schedule shipping is a must to guarantee that scheduled jobs go off without a hitch. With the main focus on the client, planners should be able to rely on the supplier without worry. Working together to achieve success benefits the distributor and the independent planning professional. With the proper support within reach, an event planner can dedicate more effort toward create a dream event that will provide lasting memories.
The main advantage of using a prepaid cellular phone is the “savings”. I know this because I myself am a prepaid cellular phone user since middle of this year. Yes, I missed the high tech world of posting just anything on my favorite social media websites and the thing of browsing online while I am out of the house but those things I can live without. The thing that I cannot live without is my savings. And so I prefer to have prepaid cellular phone service and I can use $20 triple minutes for more than 1-3 months. What a blessing indeed!
