You can die instantly from a heart failure

Indeed, as perhaps that is what happened to someone in my family back home. My uncle suddenly died just yesterday; the 26th in the Philippines. We are guessing that his cause of death is a heart failure. He had a heart attack and died instantaneously. Some people die instantly if they are having a heart attack. Just like with what my husband was telling me that one of the good basketball players died instantly of a heart attack. He was shooting the ball in the air and fell to the ground already dead. Also the man that my husband considered his surrogate father died of a heart attack right in front of him. He said that the man died instantly and did not even know what hit him. At first, he had a minor heart attack and recovered for several minutes, and then he was asked if he was aware of what is happening to him, he simply said "no". He didn't feel a thing nor know he was having a heart attack at all. And when he had another heart attack shortly after-a massive one, he died. Some heart attacks are actually instant and painless if the person having it doesn't even know it nor feel it. If my uncle died of a heart attack, then I hope he had the same thing; that he died painlessly. He was at least not murdered and I am thankful he didn't go that way. All his pains and sufferings finally ended. May he rest in peace and may it be better on the other side of this human world if there is such. It saddens me to see people like him go as he is not even very old. We will surely miss him dearly, and it was nice to see him again even just in the pictures.
Life is ever so unpredictable, that is why we need to enjoy our time here as much as possible and while we can do so. "Live life each day as if it is your last" as the saying goes. So we should live it up if we can for tomorrow we may not be here. Here today gone tomorrow as people say it. Okay, see you next time.

No school today because of the snow storm

Blog Pictures  acobox.com
We were going to send our daughter to school today with presents for her teacher and her teacher's aide but there is a snow storm. The roads are covered with thick snow-at least from where we are residing anyway. I am not even sure if we can go out later today. It's disappointing to have our gift-giving plans disrupted but oh, well, things happen. It's a good thing though that we can return the items we bought-as I think we can still find the receipts-and get our money back...LOL. I can use the money for our children. I am still not finish with buying presents for them. My husband and I have a lot of work to do in the following days in terms of getting our Christmas shopping and gift wrapping done. Our children also want to go see Santa at the nearby mall here. So I'll be busy finding Christmas outfits for them as well. Okay, this is all for now. Have fun with your holiday shopping everyone. Take care!

Great prices on supercharger

Every time we go out we often see young men using supercharger with their vehicles because we could hear the distinctive whines their vehicles make. A lot of people like to cruise around loudly. That seems to be the common thing today with young drivers racing, especially those that own pricey vehicles. They like to power up their engines and put others to shame. I mean they like to compete and show off how fast their vehicles can out run the others. It is impressive you know. Not too many people can afford it, but if you shop around you can actually find great prices. Well, I found a website with the following; buick supercharger, mercedes supercharger, pontiac supercharger, and Nissan Supercharger available for purchase online. You can get quality products at such website with great pricing and fantastic customer service to offer you. Now there you have it, get your vehicle running smoothly. Power up your engine and spare yourself the agony of having a slow running vehicle. By the way, it would make a nice present for someone who wishes to power up his engine since it's the gift-giving time.

My mestiza cousins finally visited home

What a surprise for me to hear my sister Nora uttering that our cousins in New Zealand finally visited home. We have two cousins residing in New Zealand. They are sisters and one of them is still very much single este married na pala eh just this year-she is my sister Nora's age. The other one is married with two adorable children. I hope we get to see them again even if only in the pictures. And if they come to visit my family back home, we would be able to see them live on webcam. I am so looking forward to see them. They are gorgeous, you know, as they inherited their father's Spanish look (the Spaniard's legacy in the Philippines) being fair-skinned with prominent noses. So they are fortunate to be viewed as beautiful physically. Some of my cousins are lucky to be both tall and beautiful. In my father's side of the family, I have cousins who are as tall as 5' 6". Anyway from how we all look at things differently, our opinions really differ as to how we define beauty. My definition of physical beauty may not be the same as how others define it. I have had numerous times when the people I think are beautiful totally look different to my family members. They have just the opposite of opinions which always brings me back to learn that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". However, since western features have been capitalized as the highest standard of beauty, we tend to get carried away with thinking that beautiful is if the person looks more western. We are given the pre-defined beauty that became our standard for beauty in general. But then it all goes back to the eye of the beholder to solely tell if one is beautiful. Not you nor I can tell the other person who may differ from what we think is beautiful. Just like with what happens to me each time I show someone I think is beautiful or handsome, my family members don't always totally agree with me. It's disappointing if I have to say, that I can be thinking this guy is gorgeous, yet, to others he is just the opposite...LOL. Okay, back to my cousins. Well, I am wondering how they have changed especially when it's been years since we last saw one another. I heard that they look even more beautiful now. There is no doubt because more often than not, good looking people can only look better and some are lucky enough to grow old gracefully. I'll have to share my cousins' pictures here if I get any.

Weather health alerts are very helpful

There is nothing like having a sound good health because health is wealth. Unfortunately though, not all of us are lucky health wise. I am one of the many people suffering from aches and pains. I might still be young but I am already loaded. I mean I have a number of health problems. I find it difficult to function when I am not feeling so well. Sometimes I wake up with a bad headache. Now that makes me wonder what really causes it. Could it be that I have a migraine headache, or, that it is because of the changing weather? I learned that the changes in the weather actually have something to do with people getting sicker. Well, in case some of you could use some help. Here let me share the website that can fill you in more about that. It is MediClim® which serves as a warning system that takes into account a multitude of weather parameters known to affect health, such as humidity, barometric pressure and temperature. Such website provides helpful information especially with sending out weather health alerts to people who are most susceptible to flare ups from migraine, asthma, arthritis or heart disease. My sister in law would appreciate visiting the website because she has arthritis. The website even has a forum where people with those illnesses can discuss and share information about how they can help others. Also by signing up for the e-mail alerts they can prevent their health problems from getting worse when the weather changes. Not to mention the blog is resourceful as well.

Pacman beats the Golden Boy!!!

Manny Pacquiao & Oscar Dela Hoya
I am not fond of any sports that involves physical violence but I like to share a little about my fellow Filipino; Manny Pacquiao. This is after all unlike any other fights he fought. Well, this time he fought with the undefeated champion Oscar Dela Hoya and wow! He actually won it! A lot of people thought that Pacman would not be able to beat the Golden Boy but he did it...yahooh!!! However, there are always those who calculate everything. Just like with what I read that Manny had the advantage of being "younger" and so he could throw punches "faster" than his opponent. His strength and speed made it all possible for him to win. I mean it all factored in to him winning it, but I think you have to be born with the power to be the best though-to win so to speak. Also to counter those claims, we have to look at Oscar being that he is taller and bigger. To me they make a fair boxing match. Dela Hoya was even so confident about their upcoming fight that "there would be a knockout" he said, but no, he was wrong...LOL. Now such accomplishment really put Manny Pacquiao on the pedestal as being the greatest boxer of Asia or from the Asian continent. How nice and I am happy for him and his family. He made the Philippines proud.
Everyone can be good at what they do but only a few can be the greatest. Manny Pacquiao proved that you can be the greatest, which, of course, sets an example to all of us. It is the will, perseverance, and determination that can get you there. People that do amazing things are really inspiring. As for Oscar Dela Hoya, there is a lesson to be learned in his case. Indeed, and it's realizing your greatest achievement as one. And another as knowing how far you should go or climb the ladder of success that you set your limits not to put yourself in a situation where it is possible for you to fall, or, that you could fall and lose it all. So, Oscar Dela Hoya should have stayed being retired instead of bouncing back and only to lose anyway. That is what most fighters don't seem to learn that once you achieve the highest rank, you should stay there. Gamblers do the same, when they win big they still keep going; gambling until they end up losing it all. They have to learn the hard way. I hope Manny won't make that mistake. He should learn from his latest opponent. He is going to be put to shame if he ever loses to someone new. He reached his ultimate goal there by fighting with Oscar Dela Hoya saying he "would not feel wholesome as a boxing champion if he is not able to beat the Golden Boy." And now that he made that happen, that should be it; enough-I am hoping...LOL. That is because usually they just never learn. Anyway, this news is a little late. Sometimes I like to share a lot of things I find interesting, but then I wind up being too late with sharing them. I am way behind schedule…LOL, sorry folks!

P.S. "The World's Greatest" song by R. Kelly fits him so well...congrats to Manny!

Money saving discounts on audio books

I am not such a bookworm but I do take time to read whenever possible, especially when I find a book that is entertaining as well as educational to me. The kinds of books I enjoy reading are those with stories about real people; their biographies and memoirs, heritage and culture, and many more stories I find fascinating. Well, speaking of books. I actually found a website where you can find lots of money saving deals on audio books. Now that is good news for those of you out there who are interested. Imagine that if you become a member you are entitled to the promotion offers available just for you. You can also save money by getting regular discounts on book purchases. Not to mention cheaply being that the prices are quite reasonable. So we could all use the website because it is resourceful for all the books we need. There are many categories of book clubs to choose from and they are like the following; general interests, ethnic, faith and religion, kids and parents, to audio book clubs. Books do make great gifts, too, I would say since it is the holidays!

Gift cards are the most preferred holiday gifts

One of the best ways to avoid getting disappointed (that your gift may end up getting returned to the store or wasted being thrown in the trash) during this gift-giving time is to give your recipients the kinds of gifts that would not go to waste. Well, do you know what I am getting at? If you guessed that I am talking about gift cards, you are right! That way it spares both parties the disappointment that comes with giving a wrong or unwanted gift. Wouldn't you rather agree with me? I like that idea a lot. Who can possibly resist the convenience of being able to go shopping and getting the items they really want anyway.
Now for those of you who may be lost with what to give this holiday season, perhaps you should take a look at this Gift Card Mall™ to see what you can find in terms of finding the right gift card for your recipient. Most people simply prefer getting a gift card. I am one of the many that do so because I get to pick out the things I have in mind. By the way, you can also customize your gift card which makes it a lot nicer so you can apply your personal touch.
Okay, be sure to spare yourself the disappointment that you could only be wasting money buying something that someone may not need or want at all especially if you are going the cheap route due to the weak economy. I think these prepaid holiday gift cards are perfect to make the season merry and bright. All you need to do there is pick the one that suits your recipient and you are all set. There is no need for you to hassle with going shopping because you are done.

Our '08 Christmas tree is up

At last our Christmas tree is up. That is what I have been busy on for the last few days. Holidays sure can make people busy especially broke when they over spend; going beyond their means. As for us, we try to minimize our spending since we want to be prepared for any unexpected expenses. That is especially my husband; he doesn't want to owe anything. While I am a bit of a spender but I work hard. In other words; I work hard and play hard. Mainly just when it comes to shopping though-that is why I have a Shopping Blog...LOL. Anyway, let me share what our Christmas tree look like. It is simple but it is quite pretty and when the night comes, it is spectacular. Indeed the pictures couldn't compare as to how it looks when it is dark and have all its lights on flashing or twinkling. Our children get so excited seeing the tree as they love all the fancy decorations on it. In fact, our little one if not supervised would start harvesting the ornaments and literally re-arrange how it is decorated...LOL. Okay, this is all for now. I have a couple of snap-shots here of the night and day look of our Christmas tree.

Seeking justice for my beloved uncle

At long last; after 3 years, one of the 3 men that fled from the authorities for brutally murdering my uncle have been apprehended. Wow! What a good news that is for my family and me! Nobody can pass up the reward money, of course, because otherwise nobody would want to help. That is how things go; it takes money to get things done these days. Now there are 2 more men to go. I am hoping they will all get caught soon and be punished for the heinous crime they committed. No crime should go unpunished, not anywhere in the world. Anyway, I am just so glad that my effort to be able to help my uncle is paying off. He deserves justice.

The hunter's ultimate package deal

I wanted to talk about getting a digital camera, but right now I want to share a little about a deal I found online. It is about the Thanksgiving sale on a Nikon long-range shooting system, which is only available through Sunday. It is for all the hunters out there interested in being able to shoot their targets from a far with the most efficient way possible. I am sure not too many hunters can resist. Indeed, if you happened to be a hunter and reading this (or, if you are looking for a perfect gift to give to someone you know who is a hunter), you might want to take advantage of this Nikon BDC Slam Hunter's Package which will save you almost $150.00 dollars. Now if you do decide to get it, you will be helping yourself with increasing your long-range shooting skills. Anyway, if to say I know someone who is hunter in my family, I would want to see about it, too. Nikon is an excellent brand when it comes to cameras and yes, for such long-range shooting system (or binoculars). Alright, you be sure to hurry in, so you won't miss the Thanksgiving deal available today!

We have a lot to be thankful for

It's time to give thanks once again, peeps! Happy Thanksgiving!!! Well, I must say that this year we have a lot to be thankful for. Unlike the last few years; I've been a little depressed because of what happened to my uncle. I took it the hard way as I am sentimental and quite emotional. It's not easy to lose a loved one especially to a heinous murder-there is no justice either. However, I am only getting stronger and becoming a better person with everything that happens in my life each year. I learn from my own observations. Also having been a victim of cyber bullying, taught me so much about how other people operate and that they are not always what they seem on the surface. What happened to my uncle is a clear example that people can fake you out, because he became a victim. I don't know how people can manage faking themselves like that, literally making someone believe they are something when they are not. Someone who can do that is referred to as "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing." Anyway, overall I would say that we are lucky to still be alive and well. There is nothing like having a sound good health because that is our wealth. So being alive is what we can always be thankful for.

Thanksgiving MySpace Comments and Graphics

1. One of the two big things that we can be thankful for this year; is seeing our baby girl walk without any problem. She knows just how to compensate her short leg so she can walk more balanced. Oh, she is so brilliant and she never seizes a moment to amaze us every day. She definitely proved the Doctors that looked at her leg; dead wrong. They went from wanting to amputate her foot to her whole leg (for she would not be able to walk and jump-as far as they are concerned), but we never hesitated to say "NO". Now it paid off and we are absolutely so thankful that we didn't listen to them who supposedly know better. The pros don't always know what they are talking about, that is why we have to hold our ground and stick to what we believe in. Give time a chance, because things can change in ways we least expect. We can never be so sure especially in a case where something can change or that we can make adjustments. So, yes, we are so happy to see our little girl enjoying everything she comes upon to discover. All she needs is to have her leg straighten and lengthen, and hopefully nothing will go wrong to hinder her from ever walking again.

2. Another big thing we can be thankful for is being able to help improve the living situation of my family back home. We bought a nice size house for them. If you would like to see the house, you can visit my Shopping Blog because I posted a few pictures there. Now that is a one big leap we took because we didn't want to see our family go back to our farm or the nearby village. They couldn't keep renting either because it is difficult to keep going from one house to another. It is also because my siblings are going to school in the city. So that is why we decided to finally buy a house. Why throw money in the black hole by renting when we don't have to-like what my family figured...LOL. Nothing beats living in the big city anyway, for that is where the fun is! I know so very well that it is more fun in the city. My family is really thankful and proud to have a house in the big city. They are enjoying what the city life has to offer. They have everything now. We are very much set for now.

This is for all the bloggers playing with fire

Do you know that you are liable for making false allegations or accusing someone of something that may not be true? Yes, if you out there seems to enjoy harassing other bloggers; be warned that you can get into serious trouble. You could pay a fine if to say the blogger decides to take legal action against you. Nothing is impossible if you have violated the law even online. All it takes is for a forensic computer expert to find out who you really are, you know. Nothing can pass those who know the way to trace your steps. You can discuss and argue your point without having to actually go to the extreme of literally hitting people below the belt. So always remember that there is no excuse for ignorance in court! You see, publicly humiliating someone even if true could cost you a serious amount of money. You can be sued for "Slander" or "Defamy" when you are hurting them socially or mentally. That is why you must better be very careful. Although you can comment anonymously all you want, you will still never get away. You can run but you can't hide! This is America where you will be punished soon enough if you step out of line.
By the way, how dare you accuse us of something so asinine!!! Did you ever-for a moment-consider that we have children to worry about? My children are my top priority which is why I have been so patient all these years. Indeed, they come first with me. I did not even want to go back home for a visit without them, or unless they are old enough for me to feel secure that they will be alright without me. Now matters such as what you are accusing us of, is playing with fire; very dangerous. It would be a Federal Offense, and just who on earth would want to spend the rest of their lives behind bars anyway? Moreover, we love life and enjoy living it up. Life is much too precious to waste it over nothing. Money might be part of what makes people happy, but it is nothing as far as I am concerned if compared to my family. It is only material and it can be earned anytime I wish to do so. I don't worry about money as I am more worried about my children and their well being. That is simply impossible for people to do something unlawful if they have children. It is way out of the question and not even worth talking about.
I tell you, opening your big mouth could cost you one of these days especially when you hit the wrong person. Anyway, I hope that you guys learned your lessons as well as I have knowing that there are so many people up to no good online. Let this experience be an example of what can happen. If this isn't a lesson learned for you to never cause any more trouble in the future, then you will be sorry. If you don't try to watch your step you might just stumble and fall, because surprise it's too late! That is why you should think twice the next time you feel like bringing somebody else down. You just never know if someone will take you to the cleaner-it could take all that you have. It is not worth it, okay? Take my words for it, but if you decide to continue your wrong doing please make certain that it won't cost you.

Get your holiday wish with a layaway plan

Make your holiday wish come true by purchasing an item through a layaway plan. It is the best way to get the item you really like if you don't have the money to be able to pay for it right away. Here is how it works; you can pick an item of your choice, pay for it little by little (like every 2 weeks) within the amount of time you are given (usually 8 weeks), then when it's paid it off it's finally yours. Well, it is the best way for you to afford the item you would like to have if you don't have the extra money for it. In doing so, you are saving yourself from having to pay the interest that your credit card will charge you. So isn't that nice? I like that idea especially when I find a lot of things when I go shopping. We like to shop at Kmart because of the reasonable prices and I think this holiday season I will help myself with getting a new set of jewelry. I will be taking advantage of the Kmart Layaway for the Holidays. I don't like to have to wait around and then end up disappointed because the item I have been eyeing on disappeared. Now how about you out there, do you know that you can do the same? Go ahead, check it out! Spare yourself the disappointment. Doesn't it hurt your feelings when you see something you like so bad; you can only wish to have it? Well, with layaway, you won't have to feel sorry for yourself because you can always afford anything in the store. Click Here

Verbally attacked for my opinions

I noticed lately that since I have been paying more and more attention as to what is happening in the U.S.A-where I am now residing, conservative people are getting aggressive; verbally lashing out on me. My post about "Seeing Things My Way" triggered some of them to go to the extent where I am being told what to do. Someone anonymously said to me that I should "shut up and just Trust God", because I "only like Barack Obama for his eloquent speeches." Apparently I must have been hypnotized with my eyes rolling and gone coco; knocked out...LOL. It's hard for me to believe that some of those who claim to be religious would do just what they are not supposed to do according to the bible (can't judge for only God has the power to do so). Just like with what my mother and I discussed about that there are religious people who would not hesitate to kill/commit murder/crime because they think God will forgive them as long as they repent afterwards. Now that is disturbing and yes, very scary. It is causing the people that don't share the same belief to be miserable as they are being forced to believe in God and live by the book; bible. That is how it is looking and now some people are fighting against that especially in California where same sex marriage have been banned. By the way, I had my share reading all the things that have been said by a professional; psychiatrist that liberal people are clinically insane...LOL-literally indicating that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have a disorder for their liberal principles...LOL. But hey, I also happened to find an article in contrary. I mean not quite but exactly what I consider a good counter reply and it is entitled "Republican Party and its Supporters: Immoral, Backwards and Ruining the United States." I tell you, I really had a kick out of reading the articles written by people belonging to both parties; Republican; Conservatives and Democratic; Democrats. I am learning the difference between the two parties and since I am now an American, too. I will have to pay attention and choose what is best for my family and me and the people (around me) not only in America but in the world.

As for being judged because I am not as highly educated as those of you who have gone to college and finished school. Well, I personally couldn't conclude my intellectual ability and manners by simply basing how far I've gone to school. It is absolutely not fair to conclude that you are better than I am just because you were able to continue going to school and earned a degree. Does that give you the right to say that you are better and smarter than I am because you stepped foot in college and now a working citizen? If that is all it takes, surely I can do the same-it is only a matter of having the money and effort to make it. Now, should that also make my siblings better than I am because they finished school; gone to college and have graduated, working, can drive and have their driver's license? Not to me, they are all the same to me except that they were able to further their education. So, yep, should I compete with them just to prove that I am not below them? I don't think so, as it doesn't require an education to be able to see and think for myself. I may not know anything about what other people (like you) do at work, but when it comes to life in general, hey I am human too. You need to realize that there are people who may not have been able to afford the certificate to hold a job that can read between the lines. Now may you leave us alone! We like Barack Obama and that is that. You are only having a bad time because he won and that you are a conservative Republican. If you are supposed to be well educated, why stoop down to my level then that is only a high school level? How low can you possibly get to assume and judge people by their educational attainment? Isn't that going a little too far if you consider yourself to be above everybody else? You have the nerve, and you actually wasted time arguing with me who couldn't get your point anyway since you are too smart for me to understand. You obviously don't have the face for your true nature which is why you have to hide by commenting anonymously. All you are doing is tell people that you are nothing but a phony. Shame on you ha! If you can't stand me, I can’t stand you either, okay? It makes it doubly hard for me to put up with people like you who can be so ignorant indeed. Don't compare yourselves to me and I am not about to do what you do to be among you. I am my own person and will do what is best for my family and me.

P.S. Nobody is telling you to shut up, so it would help if you can mind your own beeswax eh. My headache is worse.

Great prices on holiday eyeglasses frames

One of the best things about the holidays is that people can find so many deals whether they shop online or at their local stores. Shopping online saves a lot of money though, because there is no need for the middle man to cost extra money. That is why sometimes we prefer to shop online. In fact, speaking of deals, I found a website with loads of holiday deals on prescription glasses. Now if you are someone who wishes for a new pair of eyeglasses, you can certainly get one that you can easily afford. There is a huge selection for you to choose from and better yet, you can even find Holiday frames to suit your needs for this holiday season. So there you go, be sure to take advantage of the holiday offer so you can save money. By the way, there is no middle man so you save more by shopping at such website. You could also give someone a pair for a gift. I think that is something useful to give to someone this holiday season. Those frames are well designed and someone would be happy to receive a pair. I know that if I have the money I would want to purchase a few pair of eyeglasses for my grandmother and parents back home.

Why Filipinas are marrying Western men

It's been a talked-about that Filipinas; are marrying western (old) men for money/opportunity, but we all know that people simply can't generalize. Now here let me share my thoughts on that. It's humiliating to think that the general public look at us; as if we only married our husbands for money. Well, let's just say that we all have our ways of going about our business. Basically with me, I married my husband because I knew that I would have a better life-in the process be able to help my family back home as well-and so would my children to have a better future being fathered by someone who is much more capable and responsible (this Filipina 202 is a good article about my point). You see I have seen a number of bad examples at home that I was afraid I would wind up in the same boat. Anyway, we can't deny the fact that most people are new to the idea of a young woman having an old husband. It is taboo; I mean considered out of the ordinary. So, that is why it hurts when people are judging. I know it feels bad. However, with me I am only being honest especially with my husband since we obviously did not start off being in love with each other. I see it as love can grow when given a chance between two people that met through correspondence. And, of course, we grow to love our husbands once we are with them-that is if they treat us right.
As for my husband, he stated that being married to western men in which we don’t have to work so hard for what we have (unlike when they were younger that they worked around the clock to have what they have now) is in a way just like receiving benefits. It is being looked at the same way that we are on Social Security by having our husbands provide for us and help our family back home. That is what he was getting at, only he went on to an extent where he sounded personal to you (Rissa and Jen R.). Our situation has been perceived by so many people particularly in the Western world as a way for us to have a better life. Some Filipinas can only voice out their thoughts anonymously, that they married their husbands for a better life (or so to escape poverty) because they didn't love their husbands at first like what I read on this BLOG Post and I found different opinions on this FORUM. I understand that love can not only be found in our country, but there are people who think that it is simply a lie because of the downside: that we start sending money back home on a daily basis. So people think we would be in denial if we have to dispute that. No matter what we say, they rule it as “action speaks louder than words.” We can’t really reason with them who are seeing our marriage as a “business arrangement”. We don’t have to say anything for them to otherwise judge and in this Western Men & Filipinas Forum you'll read so many people doing exactly what I am talking about.
From what I can understand, a lot of western men who are married to Filipinas are complaining about how hard it is to manage supporting the whole family because they wound up marrying their wives' entire family, too. "I am finding out that it is harder on us Filipinas though because it is very rare that a husband would agree with supporting our family back home for who knows how long. Perhaps for as long as our people are alive, but only if we allow them to become dependent-I think we are trapped there." So many things has happened in the past and still going on up to this day that we can no longer get through to people with fixed opinions. The "YOUNG FILIPINO GIRLS MARRY OLD MEN FOR VISAS" have been polluting our reputation. Arguing against what people call the “truth/fact” is simply impossible. Although I must say that I am opposed to what some people do; generalizing because it is wrong. I know that we all married our husbands in different ways and with different reasons, and with me; I am just being truthful. I let my husband know firsthand that I wanted a better life, so I chose him (as he needed a better wife and I needed a better life...LOL) and as a result; it is a trade off with us. My husband and I are upfront, so we tell it like it is. We both entered our marriage with good intentions. By the way, I actually share the thought of a Filipina on this topic "WHY MANY FILIPINAS PREFER TO MARRY OLDER WESTERN MEN" because indeed they are more honest and open-minded.

My husband wishes to end the nonsense

My husband has been insulted by what my fellow Filipinas said about the new president and for saying that the Government is “stealing money from the rich and give it to the poor.” So when my husband heard about that, he felt that he needed to voice out his opinion as well (he wrote about it on his blog but took it off to avoid further escalation). Moreover, he is also one of the many Americans who worked hard all their lives to earn a living and the “Social Security”. That is why he wrote trying to explain what the U.S.A. Government is doing and defended Barack Obama that people shouldn’t be saying what they say especially when they have no proof. Some of you “fear for America because you think Barack Obama is a Muslim and a terrorist”-people can read between the lines you know. That is why he tried hard to make you understand, but the result is you just couldn’t understand it. The Democratic Party is in favor of the unfortunate; that the Democrats understand the fact that people could not work for the rest of their lives. And that most of all when they become ill being old or become disabled, which is why the “Social Security and Unemployment Insurance” benefits was created in the first place-it serves as an insurance policy for them.
My husband thought of us Filipinas to be the firsts to know what it’s like to be struggling trying to survive in this world knowing where most of us came from. So he expected us to fully understand it since we lived it. In turn you threw things at him that he felt it was insulting for you to do so-my husband only responded the way you guys made him feel. My husband is standing up for his rights being one of the many retirees (being under attack as lazy relying on handouts as if they didn't earn it) living on Social Security Income, because they worked hard to put in for their retirement. I don't see anything wrong with that or even look at it as so hard to understand. Anyway, for so you learn what it does, you should see about how you can earn yours by reading "How Credits are earned". You can plan your retirement and if you do well with putting in for it; you will have a comfortable life later when you are no longer able to hustle and bustle to keep up with the demand for younger workers, or when nobody wants to hire you for a job anymore because you should be retired. When we reach old age we’ll find it out for ourselves, and only then we’ll know what it means to have a Social Security Income coming in every month. Remember the more you earn the more you will receive someday, cool isn't? How nice though for those who manages to continue to work because they have more extra money. The only problem is; those of you who think it is stealing are just not getting it, why the American Government is providing its people financial benefits. Actually we have the same thing back home, and my father will be claiming his Social Security benefit soon, too. Now my husband wishes to not go on with such discussion any longer because it is becoming dirty. However, I will post the next topic about Filipinas marrying old western men, next.

Intervention is needed with irresponsible people

This topic reminds me of the girl (I saw on TV) who could not get over her drug addiction. She also abused alcohol and asked people for it. So she had to have intervention, and you know I felt really bad for her family because they were the ones that sacrificed a lot. You see she became irresponsible, so her family had to pay for everything; she was definitely a burden. She was really unruly. In fact, she even chose to go to jail rather than to go to an accommodating drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. That was awful, but I hope that she recovered; although it seemed impossible because of her unwillingness to change. Well, anyway if you know someone who could use some help with going to a rehab, you should do what you can to help. It is important that you take action right away because drug and alcohol abuse can ruin a person's life. That is why we must be responsible, always. There are so many rehab facilities with experts standing by ready to help you or your loved one recover.

Bias media and banning gay marriage issues

I have been watching the Fox News Channel from time to time to see if it is indeed "Fair and Balanced". Well, from what I can understand it is quite slanted as it does not live up to its mantra. So, you are right peeps, the media is bias indeed. I try to watch different News Channels and so far I can conclude that the Fox News Channel often has people that are mostly for the conservative Republicans. I guess I share Rosie O'Donnell's opinion there that Fox News is slanted propaganda. Bill O'Reilly alone can prove that since (more often than not) could not let someone finish his/her sentence...LOL. I was just watching him today discussing about "Same Sex Marriages" and wow, he didn't even let the guy speak up in the closing argument. He was siding with the religious people as he had the last words.
Anyway, you can't really follow your heart with people being so technical and critical. However, I always believe that sometimes there are things that require you to think with your heart instead of your head alone. Just like with gay people, I can understand them and know how they must feel being treated like an outcast. They are what they are inside and out; they feel it, they live it, and will die what they were born with. So, for me they should be entitled to equal rights. People are being so unfair. Why can't they be themselves? It is really ridiculous that people are imposing their belief on others like that, because obviously the majority that voted for banning Gay Marriage are religious people. That is why both gay and religious people are protesting and who knows if there will be riots soon. As far as I am concerned; I really have nothing against gay people. I am the kind of person that lets people be themselves. For me, if what they are doing makes them happy then go for it as long as no one gets hurt. I have no problem with gay people getting married because it is their choices. They just want to be happy you know just like everyone else. It is only wrong according to the bible after all but since we don't live in the bible, I couldn't see why people have to live against their will. Now will others that don't share the same belief have to live under the rules of the bible? There are so many religions and even Gods but Christian is seemed to be the dominating one-that is from what I can see. That makes people feel like they are in Jonestown...LOL.

Up for grabs many quality blog pictures

When it comes to making a story interesting we all prefer it to at least have a picture included. Pictures make a story come alive. That is why children prefer to open a book with loads of pictures to see. However, online it is a different story because you can't just assume something unless it is credited to whom it is due. Indeed you can't always just go ahead and collect pictures to share on your blog/website without obtaining the owner's permission-that is unless you are certain that they are for free taking. What I mean is they are not protected by a copyrighted law. You see a lot of people have been sued for grabbing pictures that don't belong to them and for sharing stories that are not theirs. Those who know better; never share a story without the author's written consent at hand, as there is no excuse for ignorance in court. Now nobody wants that which is why somebody thought of a way around it, or so to avoid getting in trouble for plagiarism with web-contents. Let me share it with you. As a blogger I always want to make my post interesting by adding a picture but sometimes I just don't have the time to go through all the hassles involved; editing, resizing, etc. So do you know that there is a website that offers great quality blog pictures up for grabs? Well, if you haven't you should check it out because you are definitely missing the benefits that come with being able to share pictures on your blog/site without worrying that you are infringing. I tell you that is the way to blog! It is so convenient because all you have to do simply copy and paste the code in adding a picture to your post. See the picture below for an example.

Caring for a loved one properly is very important because that can mean life or death. I am learning that not only because I have small children, but because I have a grandmother who recently suffered a stroke. I tell you, a proper guidance from the experts is really life saving. A motherly instinct is not enough because there are too many risks involved. That is why always try to seek the help of the professionals like Doctors who are offering help and advice online. Now I am talking about doing a research on things you need to know in order to make something work not only efficiently but also effectively. You see here is this website; The Carer that has so much to offer in terms of providing people the helpful information they need in caring for their loved ones the right way. The website is for everybody that has to take care of both the elderly and young children, whether sick or not. So be sure to get in the know as to taking the necessary steps to prevent a tragedy. Indeed learn what you can to properly care for not only your loved ones but even neighbors. We all know that it is "better to be safe than sorry" and so, be more prepared for the unexpected. You won't have any trouble if you know what to do.

Now you know, one of the domain registrars that I think offers some of the best deals, is GoDaddy.com.

The way I see things is my way

I have read people speaking out about how wrong the Democratic Policies are because it is "stealing money from those who worked so hard for it." Well, I thought I should also speak up in contrary since I don't agree with what they are saying. We all have disagreements really and so I want to share my two cents here. You see, I have seen so many people suffered in the past and still as we speak they are struggling; worrying how they are going to survive since they couldn't find a job. If there are no jobs around, and if there is no help available, common sense will tell us that they would simply starve to death-that is if they can't manage to steal or commit crimes and/or they couldn't bring themselves to beg people for money or food to be able to get by everyday while they have no job. America used to be full of opportunities but not anymore since the creation of NAFTA. It's a good thing that there is a so called "Unemployment Insurance" and "Social Security" benefits in which you can work while you are an able-bodied individual and claim it at a later age and be able to live life like you should especially when you are hanging on to the last chapter of your life. The temporary financial assistance is really helpful in terms of supplementing your income while you are out of work. It helps you to get by until you get another job (some people can only live paycheck to paycheck because not everyone can afford to be Doctors that makes whopping big bucks...LOL). That is the beauty of being an American and living in America; everyone is taken care of. Nobody is left out in the cold to starve and die-Americans are compassionate people. It has been proven by the products that Wal-Mart sells-I heard-everything is made in China...LOL. There is no business owner that would not like that idea as imagine they can make more money by employing people who will work as hard as the Americans only they can be paid less than the Americans-that is what happened. Now speaking of "Tax Break" for low income families and what it means. I just couldn't consider it stealing because I look at it as if "we are in a classroom where we normally have classmates that are slow learners in which we are required to help tutor them, teach them to be able to catch up to us that are way ahead." Therefore in my opinion; the Government is only taking necessary steps to prevent a catastrophe such as extreme poverty to the point where people especially children starves to death (like what is happening in the third world)-even when collecting cans is possible...LOL. It's like they say "It's better to be safe than sorry" kinda situation that a safety measure must be taken in order to be prepared-it serves as a safety net. By the way, let's not forget that the Republicans also have their own way of doing it, that according to what I've heard; they operate just the opposite...LOL. That is all, because it is as simple as that to me since we all have different levels of intelligence. Perhaps I am just not getting it...ahohoy! So if I sound foolish to you, I couldn't blame you for we all see things in a different light. It is like running for president after all wherein we win some and lose some; we can't win or please everybody. Anyway, I guess I have democratic principles because I am liberal. I am not as conservative as my fellow Filipinas anymore ever since I left home. In addition to that I am no longer under the influence of my people (speaking of my family) that are deeply religious and live by the book. I am just my own person. I usually have trouble pairing up the real things and the imaginary things. They somehow don't go together to me-that is from how I see them.
As for the abortion issue that Barack said "Babies are punishment". Well, below is one of the good answers I found so far that somebody said on YouTube.
"Punished; Having a hard time taking care of a baby, most likely dropping out of school and since you guys don't have a working welfare state, she must most likely work 2-3 jobs and hire a nanny to help her.

And that has nothing to do with being a Christian, except if you mean "American Christian" I.E. Not Christian, but Stupid."

Abortion is like drugs, people will do it even if it is made illegal. The fact that most people are Christian they still can't impose their belief on other people who may have a completely different belief. Technically it is none of our business what somebody decides to do with his/her body even life. It is not a one-size fits all. Sure, it is wrong to us who looks at it wrong, but since we are not in their situation, we just couldn't do anything. Life is all about the choices we make and we are what we choose to be. Indeed, just like what the saying goes "Life is not full of DOs and DON'Ts but it is full of your own choices." Alright then, I am done with this topic, peace to everyone! We all can see and think for ourselves further more "Only we know what is best for us", so let's try to do the right thing eh. For those of you who are religious that believes in the man upstairs, may I remind you that if "It is not God's will" no matter what people do, wherever they may be, etc. nothing will happen at all because it is believed that "everything is in God's hand". So, think of it as even when the person say do this and do that, nothing will happen if God does not allow it. That is to reassure you that there is no need for you to be disgusted about what someone thinks or will do for only God have the power to make things happen and every baby even fetus were put on earth because it is by God's will, then I couldn't see why people should worry. So always remember that you have God, and, course, trust God because nothing is above him is he exists.

P.S. I just happened to like the Democratic Policies better.

Now it's a good thing that diet pills and other weight lose solutions are so easy to find and that we can always find a way to save money.

The new era was born and yes we can!!!

It didn’t even turn out as what I thought it would be, going by the numbers in my dream because Barack Obama scored much higher. So wow, I was really surprised! The 2008 election certainly made history as for the very first time ever; it broke the racial barrier across the world. It gave everyone especially the people of color; a sense of relief, since it opened the door for racial equality. Now everybody will have equal chance at the opportunities that America offers. Barack Obama definitely said it all during his speech and last night at long last; the “American Dream” came true. Barack made it happen for not only Martin Luther King Jr. but for everybody…hooray!!! The minority never thought such a DAY would come, because it just seemed impossible, but finally the racial barrier has been broken…yahooh!!! The whole world is so proud of America because the new era was born where “People live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” So indeed this is a new day. Yes we can…let the freedom ring!!!
By the way, for those of you who have doubts about Barack Obama. All I can say based on how I see him not just because of his inspiring words but because of the man that he appears to be; confident, intelligent, and diplomatic is that...I just couldn’t imagine him putting his beloved family on the line; for his own selfish reasons-whatever it may be that you are obviously thinking. Barack Obama to me projects an image that he is a man of integrity and usually a man of his caliber would not risk losing everything that he holds dear in his heart. In fact, he will rise to change not just America but the world. He won’t seize the moment to make his fellow citizens proud. This is the chance to give way for change to prove that America is the nation of all nations; the land of people from all over the world!!! I am actually glad that Barack Obama won it and that only confirmed my dream about him "leading in the race for the white house" is true. I said in my YM status that “Barack Obama will win it!!!” It’s amazing that my premonition about him coming out a winner would actually happen…whoa! Barack Obama as some of us speculate could become one of the greatest presidents of all time if not the greatest of them all. He's got the potential and that is a start. So I give him the benefit of the doubt to prove himself worthy of his position as the United States of America's Commander in Chief.

Customizable Holiday Photo Cards

The computer really has so much to offer in terms of finding things we don't normally find just anywhere. Well, it is just like with me finding a number of neat things online that offer better alternatives to the things I find plain and ordinary. What I mean is; there are things that can be enhanced by adding our personal touches to them. Moreover, having the opportunity to customize something is always a lot of fun. It is just like the Holiday Photo Cards that we can now find online that are available for us who may be looking to convey our warm greetings to everyone we care about this holiday season. Personally, I think that it is a great way to reach out to my people back home because I can use our family photo and add our very own personal message. So that might be what I'll look into doing as that will mean so much more than just sending a regular card. I know if I receive a card with my loved ones' picture on it, I would appreciate it because my family means the world to me. Anyway, for those of you who feel the same, you should see about getting some for your family and friends as well. Make it meaningful to keep in touch with them by including your picture and your very own greetings. It matters if the contents of the card came from you-expressed right from the heart.

It's Election Day!!!

It's finally Election Day and you know we are all excited about who's going to win it. My husband is anxious because this is it, the most awaited day to find out who our new president will be. Oh, the anticipation...LOL. By the way, Barack Obama won in my dream; I mean he was leading with a score of 111 while John McCain scored 110-he came in second which means Barack Obama could very well come out a winner in this presidential election. According to my dream they came in so close as in neck to neck in the vote count tally-my dream was vivid enough for me to remember the details. Perhaps that is what's going to happen that John McCain won't be so far behind if indeed Barack Obama will win it. This is after all the one of a kind election in which some people vote for the candidate of their same skin-color. There is no doubt because there are still people that believe in racial superiority and so it is like "birds of a feather flock together". It kinda sad but that is what's happening, those kinds of people that think so are still around and it has been proven by a number of failed assassination attempts. What also triggered for things to get worse was also because of allegations without proof. People are so cruel and unfair; they should give someone the benefit of the doubt.
Personally, I don't mind Barack Obama to be the new president because he is not only a man of intellect but also a man of integrity as I observe him in his words and how he carries himself. He is calm and diplomatic in his ways which would help him with getting the job done smoothly. It takes a level headed person to settle things down and not by raging emotions. A lot of people think Barack Obama have what it takes to be a president for he is confident and quite charismatic. It's about time for CHANGE indeed and not more of THE SAME...yahooh!!! Anyway, let's see if my dream will come true. My dreams do foretell what the future holds and even tell me what happened in the past if there is something that I should know about. That is the beauty of having a psychic ability. I actually appreciate it because it can help me, only I already failed with my uncle. Now I vow to always treat my dreams significantly that I have to pay attention because they serve as premonitions. I can no longer ignore my dreams since a lot of very real things happened in the past because I didn't take them seriously. Alright, this is all for now. Peace to all!

Happy Halloween!!!

We just arrived from going trick or treating. The weather wasn't so bad, so we had a fun time as usual. We just didn't get to take a lot of pictures though, my husband is not really into picture taking; a snap from one scene to another is enough. So, I don't often have a lot of pictures to share. I tried to take some more pictures but my husband was rushing (we were running late), so I couldn't just hang around taking pictures. Anyway, I hope the rest of you out there had as much fun and took enough pictures to be able to share with the people that care. It's fun to capture the special moments we make in life, and taking pictures during the holidays just makes it more fun. Okay, this is all for now. Have fun everyone!!! I apologize for not returning your greetings at Friendster because I couldn't get through for a couple of nights now. I guess I am left behind for doing things the last minute. Perhaps the holidays over saturated the server with people logging in all at once which in the process; Friendster must have ran out of bandwidth.

Let's enjoy blogging in peace peeps

Blogging is certainly interesting especially with us; Philippine people, because I have read so many complaints about how others can be so hurtful with their comments. Well, sometimes we can never be too careful, moreover we don't know what the other person on the other side is thinking. However, I learned that if I am going to have an open book diary, I have to be willing to accept all comments. That is why my blog is out in the open. We all have to be sport really, but then who am I to be such an authority on that. Well, I am simply saying that the blog world was provided for us to be able to interact, share opinions and ideas, but nothing should be taken literally or too seriously that a little thing becomes a big thing. We can't just welcome the good things but also welcome the bad things that come with being in public. It goes on with the celebrities, too, you know; they need the camera in the beginning then they no longer need it when they finally made it. So, if you are going to be in the public eye; expect that the paparazzi are going to follow you around. You really don't have a lot of privacy if you are an interesting person...LOL.
As for blogging, we can't always make our visitors say what we want to hear or be as sensitive to our feelings as possible since they could have a completely different point of view. Some comments though can wake us up and I learned from that. I was attacked once about how I look, my appearance but hey, I always hold on to the fact that "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" so no one can really break my spirit not unless I let them. If we feel beautiful, that is because we learned to love and accept ourselves in spite of what people say. We are a freak of nature and after all, beauty is only skin-deep. We can't generalize nor categorize people because we can't under estimate a person's power. As adults let's try to act like we are. When it comes to English, don't assume because you might just be wrong. Nothing is what it seems. No one is better off if we are talking about coming from the same background in which English is only our second language...LOL. Imagine if we already struggle just learning how to speak our very own language, how much more with speaking a language that we were not born to speak?
Now you see you shouldn't be so quick to judge others when you have yourself to judge first. Sharing an idea or opinion is one thing but taking something personally is another-taking it out of context. Anyway, this is actually a post inspired by a comment I was just reading (this is not an attack) this is only a reminder that we blog not to find enemies, not to cause trouble but to have fun and be sport about things we all share in common. We can't take our attitudes online, we can show it but since we live in a more civilized world now; violence is no longer tolerated. If you can't handle how people will see your situation and in case they won't understand you, then I suggest that you keep it to yourself. There is no place for those who can only welcome comments that puts them in the fantasy world when, in fact, we live in the real world. Although please be respectful and considerate if you can not to be so personal. If you have nothing good to say it is best to say nothing at all. Okay, have fun blogging!!!
On the lighter note: We are all beautiful and special in our own way...and just like this saying goes "Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it". We can't control how something or someone should look because we have no control over as to how nature takes its course-we are powerless there.

Hey everyone, have you heard of the Legend of the Seeker? It is a new TV Series based on the bestselling works of author Terry Goodkind and it will be premiering as a 2 hour special event this coming November 1st.

By the way, I would like to share a clip of the Legend of the Seeker TV Series that I found at the http://www.legendoftheseeker.com/ website.

The kind of debate that never ends

I let almost the whole week go by here without posting any updates; I guess I just got a little distracted somehow. Sometimes, I am not in the mood to blog, so I don't bother jotting anything down. I also debated with my parents...LOL, about some personal matters. It was actually about God and the Scientists studying evolution and how everything came about. I find it interesting to share some of the things I learned about evolution and science but then what do my people know. It's really hard to educate my people since they know nothing about science, they couldn't grasp anything scientifically. In fact, I often have trouble getting them to understand what I am talking about, because eh, I can't get through to them. Also, when it comes to science they don't seem to want to listen since they believe that God made it all happen, so there is no place for science at all. They accept things as is and everything is automatic with God; it only takes magic after all. It makes me laugh sometimes, but I have an open-mind to consider the possibilities. I also have so many questions to ask God with when I see him someday-that is if he ever exists. Most of us would like to hope so anyway especially when we have loved ones whose lives were cut short or died before their time. It would be too bad if God is only an illusion and that the bible was only created for make believe stories. By the way, do you know that the Scientists are only one-step closer to finding out the truth? We need a closesure; an answer to the question we all ask "Is there God?” Well, we will see how far humans can go eh.

The foundation for starting an online business

I have been thinking outside of the box since I could use some more money to supplement my expenses, and well, that brought me to think about web hosting. What I mean is that I have a business stand point (selling scented candles) that I think is nice only at this time; I am not financially prepared to be able to afford everything that is involved. You see, if you start an online business, the first thing you need to see about is web hosting, and it is not easy to find the best web hosting service you know as it takes some research. If you are someone thinking about starting an online business and needs a fully functional website, you be sure to visit this webhosting blog for some helpful information about what exactly you would need. It is the kind of blog that can fill you in with some of the questions you may have and what you don't really know about web hosting. You can also find out about the best options available for you when it comes to finding what suits your needs and/or business.
As for me, I am not so new to web hosting as I have come across a number of free web hosting services in the past when I was looking for a free web page as I wanted to have a personal site. A few things that I found to be more important (that is to me) are the amount of bandwidth a month (so my site is always up and running), disk space for storing huge files and images, and the monthly price because I like an affordable web hosting with the services I require. Also, I like managing my site through a CPanel; I find it more convenient. Anyway, that is all I can very much tell you and I am not an expert at web hosting, but if you want to learn more about it, let the web hosting geeks guide you in finding the best web hosting there is for you!

We have to be more vigilant in the Philippines in pursuit of justice

Today I woke up earlier than usual. I didn't exactly want to get up but since I was awaken by a dream related to my uncle, I just decided not to go back to sleep. I got a headache though because of my being lack of sleep. I need to try to sleep early tonight for sure. I hope I can make up for all my sleep debts because I have had so many nights where I couldn't sleep very well. I often have trouble sleeping due to my aching hip joints and back. It's awful and it is making me grow old so fast; oh, I am deteriorating.
As for my beloved uncle who was brutally murdered, it has already been 3 years and still there is no justice for him. It makes us all feel hopeless that the justice system in the Philippines just takes forever. The law enforcement is the same as there is no any kind of developments in order to apprehend the three murder suspects that fled-they are still on the loose all this time. My family and I are really growing tired of what is happening; the fact that nothing is "happening". It is really disappointing I tell you. We have to take actions in terms of helping out with getting those murder suspects accounted for. I am trying to put up a reward for those who can lead to their arrest. I don't have a of money but I hope it will be enough to motivate people back home to come forward if they know anything about their whereabouts.
Anyhow, at the moment I am watching the last presidential debate. I never really paid attention to the election in the past between President W. Bush and Sen. John Kerry, but now I am more involved because I think this is a one of a kind election yet. However, this is only the second election that I am able to catch since I came to the U.S.A. I am still in the learning process about everything, and when it comes to election; I don't want take sides because I prefer to be an independent voter if ever I can register to vote. I will vote for the policy I agree with or believe in. Okay, this is all for now, my headache is getting worse and I have work to do. See yah!

High quality auto parts sold at the lowest prices

My husband always has trouble with his car breaking down because something always needs to be replaced. He already replaced the brake pads and his car still squeaks a bit and runs funny as if the wheels are going to come off. It's quite scary I tell you. Well, anyway since he will be finding out what he needs next (he is thinking that perhaps new wheel bearings), I am glad that there is a website where he can get good deals on the highest quality auto parts being sold at the lowest prices. To top it off; free shipping is available on orders over $50.00, which will help someone like my husband in need, save some money. It is much more convenient to shop online anyway since you don't have to waste money on gas and have to go all over the place.

Tonight is the night!

I am not talking about anything else but the presidential debate that is. Indeed, and you know I heard that John McCain is going to go through with character attacking Barack Obama tonight. Well, we will see about how far he is willing to go. Usually John McCain is a man of integrity but if he does something out of his character; a lot of people will lose respect for him. By the way, I read a lot of blogs online and noticed that not all women are going for Sarah Palin, just because John McCain chose her for a VP so to draw women voters-it is not working as well as anticipated I’m afraid. Most people I know are quite apprehensive about the fact that if something happens to John McCain she will be president and what is going to happen then? She is after all; a heartbeat away from it. That is why the American people are so in tune and concerned about what is going to happen to America if John McCain won the presidency, because his VP is not as ready as she think she is to be a vice president let alone a president of the most powerful nation on earth. There are celebrities (such as Matt Damon and Sharon Osbourne) and people in the media (like Jack Cafferty and Bill Maher) breaking their silence and say what they feel about Sarah Palin. They detest her to even be running as a VP, because why would someone like her be qualified to run a country when she has only been a Governor for 2 years (not to mention she has small children to worry about especially her little one who's got a down syndrome-the poor baby has to travel with mommy all over the place). What is she going to bring to the table other than being a woman? What most people think is that the main reason why she was chosen to be a VP in the first place is to draw in Hillary’s voters. However, it doesn't seem like it is helping! People said "Boo!" to her when she dropped the puck for a hockey game, a good thing that the musicians turned down the volume to not make it so obvious. Only perhaps she read what the sign that somebody was holding there saying "I can see the end of your political career from my house!"...LOL. I just grabbed the picture somewhere on the net-it's hotlinked.

Make extra money by being an extra in a movie

This is it a chance for some of us who aspires to be one of the shining stars in Hollywood to be in the movies. Well, don't we all at one point in our lives think about how nice it would be to be rich and famous like the celebrities? I always wonder about how fun it must be to be able to go shopping anytime I want to, buy the things I want like designer wardrobes, out of this world vehicles, own a luxury home, and have people catering to me...LOL. I actually didn't dream to be in a spotlight (though if I had the height and looks surely I would aspire as one of the Hollywood stars for sure) but still if given a chance I couldn't see why not. Now perhaps I can see about becoming one of the movie extras that Talent6 are seeking (anyone is welcome from age 18-85 and from anywhere in the country). I would not mind being in the background of the actual actors and actresses since that is as far as I can get. Not to mention I can at least get a glimpse of them in person. So I would love to be an extra for a movie especially when I get paid $100.00 to $300.00 dollars a day. By the way, if you are someone who aspires to be an actress or an actor here is what I can tell you that it begins by making a phone call to this toll free number: (800-493-9047) to talk with a portfolio manager for your chance to get casted as an extra in a movie. If you have what it takes you might even get discovered and soon enough you'll be one of Hollywood's brightest stars as to say you just never know.

It's getting down and dirty with John McCain's campaign

Indeed, it is getting ridiculous to the point that they could cause a riot. They are playing a dangerous game that incites anger towards the opposing candidate. Perhaps it is because of John McCain's desperation that he has his VP spreading rumors about Sen. Barack Obama (heads up peeps; he just happens to have a Muslim name but that doesn't make him a terrorist yah know). Their getting down and dirty style campaign led some of their supporters to shout "treason" and "traitor" and worse of all a man actually shouted "Kill him" and a woman saying "Off with his head" which in the process puts Barack Obama in danger. Anyway, in spite of how uncivilized people are getting about this 2008 presidential election, I find it fun to listen to both Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain debating; it's heating up between them for sure. I also enjoyed the vice presidential debate and think that Joe Biden did very well with getting all his ducks in a row, I mean he had it together, because, of course, he knows more than Sarah Palin does. Gov. Sarah Palin didn’t even answer some of the questions she was asked, so that didn’t help her much as she only kept going back to what she already said. My, she can certainly make people laugh by saying a lot of things that don’t really make sense…LOL, just like what she was saying during her interview with Katie Couric. People found it damaging and hilarious that Saturday Night Live actually made a video of Tina Fey again for the second time portraying Gov. Sarah Palin, and the same with Amy Poehler. Now if you haven’t seen the SNL video, I made sure that I have a copy here, so view it below. You will get a kick out of it if you're with me…LOL.

Save time even if you type fast

Dragon NaturallySpeaking 10 Preferred
One of the things that slow me down when it comes to writing is the fact that I type too slow; using only a few fingers to type. Well, I am not very good at typing for sure and I have actually been wishing I don't have to type at all. Just like with what I saw on TV before and this Dragon Naturally Speaking that has the voice activated command power to create a document, e-mail, and even surf the web. So that makes it easy for people that can't often type fast and spell correctly because all they have to do is dictate and what they say is written as is only better since they don't have to worry about spelling out their words. See the Dragon Reviews or watch the videos here as examples to find out more about how efficient it works. I think that is very convenient and easy to use. Imagine what else you can do with the time saved by having it. I would want to see about getting it because I know it can help me save time and hassle from having to type and having sore fingers at the end of the day. I can spend more time with my children with all the time in my hands if I have it. Why spend all day creating a document when it can be done in minutes anyway. I like that and you know nothing can compare because just take a look at my speed typing test result below. Perhaps you would like to see for yourself by taking the Dragon’s typing speed test! It is fun and you can find out about how you can improve your speed. By the way, there are two versions to choose from as you can choose either a PC or MAC version, but as for me, I would pick the PC version because my family and I prefer Windows Vista.

The history of racial superiority in America

I am very interested in learning a lot of things and always keep an open-mind to matters that most people would not even bother. As for me; I am recently paying attention to scientific discoveries and the history of the world. Right now, I am watching a little about how it was years ago here in America especially during the time when the Ku Klux Klan (KKK-for short) did a lot of atrocity to people that were other than whites (people of colors I mean, and Jews). It was really sad those days as the people were so unbelievably uncivilized. So much so that many lives were lost including someone who stood up for what is right Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.-an American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the American civil rights movement.
My, with all the atrocities in the world; people do ask if there really is God who supposedly watching over everything. It seems that people kill in the name of God more than anything I have ever heard. Religion is serving both the good (as it keeps people in line) and the bad (as it makes people commit crimes). There are a number of examples like the Ku Klux Klan that believes in racial superiority shouting "White Power!!!" that has a history of killing non-white people, religious people who actually took their lives (in mass suicide) to go to heaven sooner and meet God, those people who decided to murder their children so they won't sin and be able to enter the kingdom of God and those who continues to kill in the name of God (human sacrifice).
I tell you I can't even imagine how terrible it must have been to be living in the society those days when equal rights and racial equality was not yet possible. People suffered so much from being maltreated, belittled, and looked down upon and worse of all brutally murdered just for having the wrong color of skin. I am glad that there are not too much of it going on nowadays. Although those people who believes in racial superiority are still very much around up to this day. The only thing is; they are blending in the crowd anymore as they don't wear their costumes that make them stand out. I guess since it is more civilized now, they are not as open as before. No one can tell who is who to be able to pin-point; otherwise there will be lashing out and violence because of their violent past. I can't understand why people who are supposed to be Godly act so ungodly. They don't practice what they preach. I hope people will settle down, live and let live just as they should. Enjoy life and do the right thing so the world is a better place for everybody.

Tank Cartier

I came across a lot of discounted luxury watches today and you know they are so much more affordable for the people that have money like the celebrities. I can only wish I have the money because they are on sale. Not only that, they are well designed and quite stylish which makes them good for gift-giving. After all, it's almost the holidays. So I would say that if you are someone looking to purchase a watch that fits your budget as well as status in the society being high profiled, you should see about the tank cartier watches for your needs. You won't be disappointed with the prices because they are already marked down. In fact, they are selling out quickly. That is why if you are looking for a huge selection of luxury watches the Cartier watches are for you! You can save thousands of dollars on them and since the holidays are coming, you should check them out. You won't find such kind of quality watches reasonably priced elsewhere for sure. See for yourself and just take a look at the watch I chose below if I were to buy one right now. Wouldn't you agree that it is stunning? Now there you have it, shop wisely and save big money.

The 1st heated presidential debate

First off, when Barrack Obama became the presumptive nominee for the Democratic presidential candidate people said that "it is the very first time to have a U.S. presidential candidate ever that is of African American descent"-though not exactly as he is half Caucasian which makes him biracial. So that is bringing something new to the table which will be interesting for sure. On the other hand, if Hillary was the one who won it; she would have been just as fine because the U.S. never had a woman presidential candidate running before either." Anyway, that is a little off topic and kinda late for me to talk about but I still want to include it here. I am getting involved in this politics since I have been hearing that it counts to vote and it counts to pay attention as to what is going to happen that can affect our lives. Moreover, I like politics because the debates are interesting to me.
By the way, I watched the 1st presidential debate, and people said that Barrack lost, as he didn't say a lot with presenting his ideas other than that he kept agreeing with John McCain. However, some say that he, in fact, did very well. When he agreed with John McCain people thought he couldn't come up with his own ideas and doing so put him in a situation where people would say that he doesn't know much. Now this election is definitely interesting in which two parties are arguing over who may not be able to handle the job being a commander of chief. That is tough I would imagine and the two parties have something for people to compromise. They can either vote for McCain who chose a VP that is said to be "inexperienced" or vote for Barrack Obama who's been criticized for also being inexperienced. Now the problem is; people are mostly afraid that if something happens to John McCain, it will all be a mess. Boy, that is scary, and so, the American people will definitely have to get a grip and make a tough decision this coming election about which party is more balanced to make it in the office. We'll see because only the voters can say that, unless one of these nights I have a dream about who won already. I had a dream about President Bush before that "he won" you know, that is why I am curious if I dream this year.
