John Venezia park – Colorado Springs, Colorado

So yesterday, my friend kept on calling me many times. I was too busy so I answered it once I was able to sit down on my working area. She informed me that there’s a newly opened water park in district 20 and it’s call John Venezia Community Park. I packed some clothes for my kiddos, towels and little food. Then we went to her place. I just followed her driving since I didn’t know the place. It’s just few minutes from her house and when we reached the place, it was raining and windy. I didn’t bring any jacket and I wear shorts. Cold wind made us shiver coz we didn’t have the right gear. We thought it will be hot coz u know it’s summer time but it was not. After like an hour of letting the kids play, we decided to go home and my kids were having fun. They said they will be back in that park again. The next time we will visit there, I’ll make sure I will bring jacket and other stuff just in case it will be windy or whatever.

Anyway, it’s a nice park and it’s safe in there since it is located in district 20. When that park will be finished, it will be so much fun and it’s a nice place to have parties, play/watch games and more.

Name: John Venezia Community Park
Location: 3555 Briargate Pkwy, Colorado Springs, CO 80920

eZip 500 Electric Scooter – super beautiful scooter

I want to sell my Ezip E500 Electric Scooter this year but I need to change the battery or the charging cable. I have this scooter since 2010 and this served me best since then. I bought this online at Walmart before. This time, it’s not available at this store. This is still available in other online retailers. I love this scooter. As much as I want to let go of this but I also want to keep it coz this is one of a kind.

Features of this eZip 500 Electric Scooter
500W power from a DC-earth motor
24V rechargeable battery pack
Max speed 15 miles per hour
8 miles maximum range
Folding handle bars
Removable seat
Power switch is on/off
The tire is tough (to reduce chances of getting punctured while using)
Front disk brake inhibit lever
Steel frame (durable as it last for 7 years now)
With auto shut off features with relay protection and battery level gauge

On the other hand, in this photo, I put a child carrier so that my kids can ride together with me. Now that they are big, they can ride their own bicycles. When I will not sell this e-scooter, maybe they can play with this when they will be a bit bigger. Well, let me see what I can do with this electric scooter.

Advices in finding and buying your ideal Car

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

In buying your ideal car, do you think that is tremendously extensive and taxing thing to handle? Not anymore in these high-tech internet days. Right!? With all of the resources that you can research, read and review online, finding and buying your ideal car is effortless thing to do.

But there is one more thing that you got to have and that is to use a website that is authoritative with the services that it offers. No matter if you are first time car buyer or not; using a site that is informative and that has everything about cars, then, this will help you big time. You know that you cannot make a car purchase when you will not know about the make, model and the price of the car, right!

So, what is the first thing that you will consider in buying your car? Are you particular of the price, the model, the make, used car, new car, certified car, and or luxury car? With everything, I have found Cars.com to have the comprehensive information when it comes to cars from make A to Z. When you are particular with the car body styles, you can search from Crossover, SUVs, pickup trucks, convertibles, sedans, coupes, luxury cars (oh I love luxuries), wagons/hatchbacks, green cars/hybrids, sports cars, and minivans/vans. When you want to find the car make, then, you can search from Acura to BMW, Buick, Jaguar, to Rolls-Royce, Tesla to Volvo. And when you are particular with your budget and you want to make a search using PRICE, you can do it too. Another thing is that using cars.com; you can read broad reviews and necessary information about all of these cars.

By means of cars.com, this will ease your confusion on what to buy and where to buy the car that you love most as this one stop online website for cars helps you connect with the dealers near you. Not just that, cars.com will also help you sell or service your vehicles. Before buying anything, read and search more about the car that you want to buy. Better yet, compare prices, specifications, and all so that your car purchase will be worth the money.

McDonald’s 324 E. Fillmore update

Is McDonald’s 324 E. Fillmore (east of Nevada Avenue) in midtown Colorado Springs, one of your favorite fast food chains? They are tearing this store down as of the present and they will be building this one for the whole summer. News stated that they will be opening again either late of August or week of September (pretty sure it will be a modern/high tech fast food chain).

Instead of feeling negative, do good things for others

It’s just because of not using a gadget for his “so called making a video”, he said that his life is miserable. What the heck? So, I told him that if he is with the house of my friend and one of their kids, he will be having a bald hair as that’s the punishment that my friend gave to her son. Continue reading

Whole house surge protection – the facts that you should know

Whole house surge protection is something that many house builders are now offering as an optional add on. If you are buying a new build it’s worth investing in the protection that these whole house systems offer. Likewise, if you already have a property, it’s worth having whole house surge protection installed. Doing so could end up saving you thousands of dollars.

Next time you have an electrical inspection carried out on your property, ask the experts about installing whole house surge protection. Generally, you should expect to pay between AUS$600 and AUS$700. The job should take a qualified electrician around two hours to complete.

Why is whole house surge protection a good idea?

If a surge of electricity enters your home it can potentially cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. Electronic items, such as computers, used to be worst affected by this type of event. Whilst computers are still vulnerable, they have now been joined by a long list of day to day appliances. Do not forget that items such as refrigerators now often have complicated circuitry which can easily be blown by a power surge.

The worst type of power surge is one that is caused by a lightning strike, as this type of surge is massive. Fortunately, this is a relatively rare occurrence, and the lightning has to strike within a mile of your property in order for a surge to happen.

Power surges can also be caused by events such as power cables falling down or the amount of electricity being used in the neighbored fluctuating suddenly. Any power surge has the potential to cause damage, so it’s worth having protection in place.

Using individual circuit surge suppressors

Even if you use whole house surge protection, there is still a chance that around 15% of the electric from the surge will get through to appliances. This is why it’s a good idea to use individual circuit surge suppressors as well. These plug-in suppressors help to protect the most vulnerable appliances and devices in your home.

Normally, electricity flows through the suppressor, on its way to the appliance or device. If a surge in electricity occurs, the electricity is diverted to the ground wire. As soon as the surge is over, the electricity starts to flow normally again. Do not forget that all of this often happens in less than a second.

The best way to protect your home and its contents against surges in electricity is to use whole house and individual circuit protection, at the same time. You may think that all of this sounds like a lot of trouble when you have never had a problem from an electricity surge. The fact is that these surges are quite common, and it’s better to have the protection in place. You may not even realise that you have had problems in the past, as not all results of damage are obvious instantaneously. It can take months for a device to fail due to damage caused by a surge in electricity.

You can guard against these failures, by simply having surge protection in place.

Balikbayan box is on the way

After living abroad for more than 10 years, I was able to send my 2nd balikbayan box. And I am thankful that I am able to send it despite of my freelance income. I do believe that the more I’ll share the more things that will come to my own family here. I hope my family back home will be happy to receive those things in the box. It may not be all new and expensive but I work hard for those things to be able to share it with them. And I gave it heartily.

To those who are sending boxes to their families back home with the help of their entire family on their present place, you are blessed that you are not alone and that is a cool thing to have. It feels good that you have somebody to share in life in whatever things that you want to do. It feels good to always give. Right?!? Right! Life is still good and life is always great! All is well!

Tripod folding stools

I want to bring my kids out every once in a while. They are homeschooled and so AS A PARENT I WANT TO BRING THEM OUT coz they cannot go out alone by themselves. IT IS PARENTS’ OBLIGATION TO bring them out and so even if I am a home buddy, I see to it that I’ll find TIME TO LET THEM OUT FROM THE HOUSE. Before I am contented with just staying in the house most of the time coz that’s what I always loved to do when I was single. But now that I AM A PARENT and my kids are growing up, I need to let them see the world outside the home that we’re living.

Anyway, it’s the reason why I bought these tripod folding stools. It’s easy to carry and easy to fold wherever we will go (parks, church, anywhere). I can use these stools anytime. Although, these three tripod folding stools from Cabelas are bit bigger but it’s fine. It’s light weight and so it’s easy for me to carry. I am happy with my purchase coz these were on sale that day.
