I got this tag from Norms. I didn't really visited a lot of places in the Philippines. Mostly that I've been to was in Luzon. Never been to Visayas and Mindanao yet so my Lakbayan grade is D. I'm not tagging anyone. Anybody can grab it if they want to do this.

My Lakbayan grade is D!

How much of the Philippines have you visited? Find out at Lakbayan!

The Optimist's Creed

Promise Yourself...
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have not time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Got My DSL Connection

I just got my DSL activated today and now I'm still familiarizing myself with its features. I wasn't able to use the internet for more than 24 hours because I have to wait for my DSL internet to be activated. I missed a lot of opps in PPP. Anyways I'm back now and I hope I will have more opps and can blog faster now.

Human Touch HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair

I just love being massaged. In fact I go to the massage therapist regularly and it makes me so relaxed afterwards. I don't mind spending some money because getting a massage do me good. It gives good circulation to the body and it soothes my muscles. I just found out that lately there's this website that sells Human Touch HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair online. This incredible chair virtually reverses the adverse effects of gravity on the body! The HT 7450 incorporates Human Touch’s unique massage technology, called the Quad Roller System, which includes four precise techniques that imitate those used by massage professionals: Percussion, Rolling, Compression, and Kneading. The experience combines the sensations of hands rapidly tapping on the back, gentle rolling, alternating strokes and relieving spinal pressure, and kneading to work out knots and ease soreness. The HT 7450 Zero Gravity Massage Chair calibrates the body frame of the individual sitting in it and adjusts according to that individual’s unique physique, so each massage in the HT 7450 is perfectly focused on the right areas of the body. The speed, intensity, location, and technique can then be adjusted according to an individual’s preferences, or specialized Accupoint programs can be used for particular types of relief or relaxation. Additional options include a soothing heat feature or a luxurious foot massage, all customized to the individual’s preference! This is cool! Maybe I don't have to go to the massage therapist no more if I have this one.

Newest Thoughts on Brain Food

Fish have long been regarded as “brain food” because of their high content of omega-3 fatty acids.

Historically, omega-3 fats have been said to improve brain development and maintenance. Now, two new studies in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition provide further evidence for the beneficial effects of omega-3 fats, including better performance or preservation of your brain function as you age.

While numerous studies exist showing diets high in omega-3 fats lower your risk of dementia, these newer studies looked at the benefits of omega-3 fats among healthy people, with the hope that they would prevent progression to dementia.

More than 5 million Americans have some form of Alzheimer’s disease, and just as many suffer from vascular dementia, so preventing and slowing the progression of neurodegenerative disorders is a public health imperative.

The studies found:

A diet high in fish and fish products is associated with better cognitive performance
Higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids were associated with less decline in the speed-related cognitive domains
It often takes decades for dementia to develop and brain volume to shrink. These studies of the benefits of omega-3 fats on brain function offer an opportunity for early intervention to maintain your brain function and slow progression to dementia.

Innovative Tutor

I'm sure most parents if not all wants their kids to have the best education that they can get. They want their kids to excel in their studies and be recognized in their academic achievements.

If in case they will need some tutors we don't have to worry because we can avail the service of an Innovative Tutor online. That's right.

Ten Commandments For Peace Of Mind

1. Do Not Interfere In Others' Business Unless Asked.
Most of us create our own problems by interfering too often in others' affairs. We do so because somehow we have convinced ourselves that our way is the best way, our logic is the perfect logic and those who do not conform to our thinking must be criticized and steered to the right direction, our direction. This thinking denies the existence of individuality and consequently the existence of God. God has created each one of us in a unique way. No two human beings can think or act in exactly the same way. All men or women act the way they do because God within them prompts them that way. There is God to look after everything. Why are you bothered? Mind your own business and you will keep your peace.
2. Forgive And Forget.
This is the most powerful aid to peace of mind. We often develop ill feelings inside our heart for the person who insults us or harms us. We nurture grievances. This in turn results in loss of sleep, development of stomach ulcers, and high blood pressure. This insult or injury was done once, but nourishing of grievance goes on forever by constantly remembering it. Get over this bad habit. Believe in the justice of God and the doctrine of Karma. Let Him judge the act of the one who insulted you. Life is too short to waste in such trifles. Forgive, Forget, and march on. Love flourishes in giving and forgiving.
3. Do Not Crave For Recognition.
This world is full of selfish people. They seldom praise anybody without selfish motives. They may praise you today because you are in power, but no sooner than you are powerless; they will forget your achievement and will start finding faults in you. Why do you wish to kill yourself in striving for their recognition? Their recognition is not worth the aggravation. Do your duties ethically and sincerely and leave the rest to God.
4. Do Not Be Jealous.
We all have experienced how jealousy can disturb our peace of mind. You know that you work harder than your colleagues in the office, but sometimes they get promotions; you do not. You started a business several years ago, but you are not as successful as your neighbor whose business is only one year old. There are several examples like these in everyday life. Should you be jealous? No. Remember everybody's life is shaped by his or her previous Karma, which has now become his destiny. If you are destined to be rich, nothing in the world can stop you. If you are not so destined, no one can help you either. Nothing will be gained by blaming others for your misfortune. Jealousy will not get you anywhere; it will only take away your peace of mind.
5. Change Yourself According To The Environment.
If you try to change the environment single-handedly, the chances are you will fail. Instead, change yourself to suit your environment. As you do this, even the environment, which has been unfriendly to you, will mysteriously change and seem congenial and harmonious.
6. Endure What Cannot Be Cured.
This is the best way to turn a disadvantage into an advantage. Every day we face numerous inconveniences, ailments, irritations, and accidents that are beyond our control. If we cannot control them or change them, we must learn to put up with these things. We must learn to endure them cheerfully thinking, "God wills it so, so be it." God's plan is beyond our comprehension. Believe in it and you will gain in terms of patience, inner strength and will power.
7. Do Not Bite Off More Than You Can Chew.
This maxim needs to be remembered constantly. We often tend to take more responsibilities than we are capable of carrying out. This is done to satisfy our ego. Know your limitations. Why take on additional loads that may create more worries? You cannot gain peace of mind by expanding your external activities. Reduce your material engagements and spend time in prayer, introspection and meditation. This will reduce those thoughts in your mind that make you restless. Uncluttered mind will produce greater peace of mind.
8. Meditate Regularly.
Meditation calms the mind and gets rid of disturbing thoughts. This is the highest state of peace of mind. Try and experience it yourself. If you meditate earnestly for half an hour everyday, your mind will tend to become peaceful during the remaining twenty-three and half-hours. Your mind will not be easily disturbed as it was before. You would benefit by gradually increasing the period of daily mediation. You may think that this will interfere with your daily work. On the contrary, this will increase your efficiency and you will be able to produce better results in less time.
9. Never Leave The Mind Vacant.
An empty mind is the devil's workshop. All evil actions start in the vacant mind. Keep your mind occupied in something positive, something worthwhile. Actively follow a hobby. Do something that holds your interest. You must decide what you value more: money or peace of mind. Your hobby, like social work or temple work, may not always earn you more money, but you will have a sense of fulfillment and achievement. Even when you are resting physically, occupy yourself in healthy reading or mental chanting of God's name.
10. Do Not Procrastinate And Never Regret.
Do not waste time in protracted wondering "Should I or shouldn't I?" Days, weeks, months, and years may be wasted in that futile mental debating. You can never plan enough because you can never anticipate all future happenings. Always remember, God has His own plan, too for you. Value your time and do the things that need to be done. It does not matter if you fail the first time. You can learn from your mistakes and succeed the next time. Sitting back and worrying will lead to nothing. Learn from your mistakes, but do not brood over the past. DO NOT REGRET. Whatever happened was destined to happen only that way. Take it as the Will of God. You do not have the power to alter the course of God's Will.
Why cry over spilt milk?

Snow Today and Gone Tomorrow

Last night when we went out from the church after the evening service, snow were falling down. Our truck's windshield and windows were covered with snow. When we were driving back home, all the grass that we passed by were covered with snow. This is the first snow here Texas this year. It's so cold because it's been sprinkling which make the temperature colder. A friend of mine who just came from Denver with her family said that it's colder here in Texas than there. It was snowing in Denver she said but it's colder here in Texas because it's wet because it's been raining the past couple of days. This morning when I got up I opened the door and looked outside. The snow is still there but it's thinning and would you believe that right now the sun is shining bright. It's really weird huh! Oh well this is Texas, the weather changes quickly and it's like a fickle minded lady. Maybe later today all the snow will melt because according to the weather forecast it's supposed to get warmer tomorrow and I like it.

The Last Word In Customer Service

I just talked to one of our church members this morning about their Thanksgiving Day celebration. She said they just spent the day by eating out in a certain restaurant in Oklahoma. I asked her why they went there rather than eating in the same restaurant here in Texas. She said it's just 50 miles away from here and besides, the main reason they don't want to eat again in the same restaurant here because they had a bad customer service experience in that restaurant. She said people there didn't even cleaned the tables and they were not friendly at all. Oh my, I said that's too bad. They should have complained to the manager but they didn't bother to do it. They just boycott that restaurant and don't want to go there no more. I was just browsing the internet when I came across this website wherein you can write customer service reviews and consumer complaints. is the leading consumer website where consumers share outrageous, funny or complimentary reviews about customer service and brand experiences. This is a new site where loyal and connected consumers rate and review the customer service they experience from any business, large or small. Now you don't have to quietly absorb those obnoxious comments and looks from the shoe salesperson, the counter person or the barista. is the perfect forum for the shy or busy person to vent, praise, share views and recommendations and get in The last word in customer service. You don't have to endure those pushy salespeople, rude encounters and outright abuse in the name of being a consumer. Write your reviews at this website and I'm sure you will feel a lot better after you voice out your bad experience.

Be Good To Your Liver

I got this my e-mail sent to me by my sister. I think it's interesting and informative. So read further.

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and
artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce
cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking
oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are
tired, except if the body is very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one
sitting, do not store.

We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have
To adopt a good daily 0lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to "schedule."


Evening at 9 - 11pm : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxic
chemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes).This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on health.

Evening at 11pm - 1am : is the de-toxification process in the liver,
And ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 - 3am : de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5am : de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there
Will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

Morning 5 - 7am : de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your

Morning 7 - 9am : absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you
should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 - 10am rather than no meal at all.

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of
removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.

I Wish I Had Dentemp OS!

I remember a few years ago wayback in my own native land, the crown of my 2 teeth got broke and whenever I drink cold water, my gums and teeth became so sensitive. I was so busy that time working and because of my hectic schedule I haven't gone to the dentist right away. I had to endure the discomfort I felt until I had time to take off and visit my dentist. Going to the dentist was the only option because I didn't know what to do to ease my discomfort and pain. The problem was fixed by the dentist and it cost me money. Now the same 2 crowns of my teeth have problems again. I think they're getting loose this time. I don't have a dental insurance here in the US so I can't afford to go to the dentist. It's good I've seen this website that sells Dentemp OS online. This product provides fast, temporary relief of pain and discomfort. Just remove it from its plastic vial and it's ready to use. No Mess! No Mixing! Several applications in each vial. It replaces lost fillings and may be used to temporarily cement loose crowns. You can eat on it within 30 minutes of setting. All products have been tested and fully comply with FDA Regulations for Oral Care. I'm glad I found this site and I've learned about this product. This is what I need right now to provide a temporary dental repair for my teeth until I have enough money to see the dentist. I wish I had it before when I had my first problems with my crowns. It would have been a great help to me.

Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving Day celebration yesterday. What with the presence of two pastors and their wives who came and celebrated with us. It was such a blessing. It was also the first time that I made a pumpkin pie. I thought the pie crust that was in our refrigerator was still good but when I got it out and opened it, it was already dry and moldy. So I had no choice but to make a pie crust from scratch. I was not very good in kneading a dough so Sis Modie took over and kneaded it. It was also her first time to do it. But anyways, the pumpkin pie turned out good though it was prepared by newbies. We made 2 2 pumpkin pies and it was all eaten this morning.

So Thankful

I had grabbed some high paying opps last night and I was surprised to see this morning that I am one of the top earners for today. It's the first time that I was featured there. I only grabbed 3 opps last night though. Maybe most bloggers had been busy preparing for Thanksgiving Day. I just blogged almost midnight because I was busy too cooking for Thanksgiving the whole Day. We had guest for lunch and also during supper. So I was really busy like a bee preparing for Thanksgiving. It's good that there were still opportunities left for me when I logged in to PPP. I am really thankful. I give thanks to God my Father in heaven.

St. Augustine Artwalk

One state that I wanted to see is Florida. I have a high school friend who lives there and she's been inviting me to go and visit her ever since I got here in the US. I told her maybe one of these days. I just saw online that there gonna be Events in St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city in Florida and home to many artists and art-lovers. I heard that they gonna feature the St. Augustine Artwalk. Hmm, this must be a good time to go there. A favorite first weekend of every month event, First Friday Weekend Art Walk takes place on Friday and Saturday, December 7th and 8th, along with the first weekend of each month thereafter, the city comes alive with music and art exhibits. The art galleries of St. Augustine sponsor FREE, self guided monthly Artwalks, featuring the finest collection of eclectic art in North Florida. Free parking and free Sightseeing Train and Trolley tours are also available. You can explore whatever type of art tickles your fancy: from painting to photography, architecture, music and more. Oh, I love these especially seeing paintings of famous artists, can't wait to go. I bet my friend would be happy to see me when I decide to go there finally. Check it out folks and don't forget the dates, December 7th and 8th. You'll surely enjoy and have fun.

More Tasks

I just can't let these opportunities pass by without grabbing them. I'm glad even though I logged on late tonight there were still available opps form me in PPP and they're high paying too. Thank you so much PPP. You made my Thanksgiving day complete with the opps that you offered.

Holiday Gifts

Many of us are already thinking of buying gifts for our loved ones for the coming Chrsitmas season. It only comes once a year and we want to make our friends and loved ones happy by giving them gifts on this coming holiday season. Maybe some of you have been going to the mall or different stores scouting for that perfect holiday gift for our loved ones. If you have a loved one that is suffering from Alzheimers disease then you need to give a special gift for that person. It's really hard to see your loved ones that they don't even recognize or remember their families anymore. Most of them don't even remember who they were abd don't even know their names. They may still be alive but as if they're out of this world already because of their disease. It's really sad to see your loved ones suffer this debilitating disease. There are groups or foundations here in the US that are supporting the programs and services of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and its member organizations from the proceeds of the sale of their products. So if you want to buy a holiday gift for your loved ones, why not buy it at the Alzheimer's Foundation of America eStore. All the proceeds from the sale of their products benefit the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. With their products, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America hopes to raise awareness and enhance knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses, and further its mission of providing optimal care to those affected by dementia. While seeking a cure to Alzheimer's disease is important, ensuring quality care for those who suffer from the disease must not be overlooked, so the holidays are a good time to give a donation or buy a gift from the eStore. This is one way to show our concern to people who are suffering from this disease. So check out this site folks.

Taking Opps Tonight

It's already almost midnight and I wanted to rest and go to bed but there were lots of opportunities in PPP. I decided to grab some higher paying opps and I want to finish these tasks before sleeping. Got to make some money today because I didn't have time to blog this morning. I was too busy cooking for Thanksgiving. It's good PPP offered opps late tonight.

AAMCO, Special Promotions!

My husband haven't been using our van for a while now. It has been stuck maybe around 5 months now because something is wrong with it. I don't know anything about cars but my hubby does. He used to be an auto mechanic and he owned a used car lot long time ago. So I asked him what is wrong with our van and he told me the transmission needs to be replaced. Hubby is not into auto mechanic works no more and most of his tools got lost. So we intend to have the transmission of van be replaced or repaired by an expert auto mechanic. I was browsing the internet and I found this site that specializes in car transmissions. AAMCO offers services for transmissions, exhaust, brakes, shocks, struts, AC, and more. They have fantastic promotions which you can avail through their website. You will have huge savings if you avail their services because they offer discount coupons which you can download in their website. AAMCO transmissions offers free oil change or transmission fluid change with service $50 or more. They also offer $100 off on any rebuilt transmission or repair. I would really tell my hubby about this great offer that I found on this site. Our van really needs the services of this site and I'm sure hubby will take advantage of this offer.

Holiday Cards

Christmas is fast approaching and you can feel it in the air. It's really getting cold nowadays and in a matter of just over a month Christmas will be here. I need to buy Christmas cards now so I can send it to my loved ones here and across the sea. I want them to feel that I think of them and I care for them on this special occasion. I noticed lately the absence of beautiful cards in the stores. So I browsed the internet and looked for beautiful christmas cards and I happened to come across this website that sells Holiday cards online. What is cool about this site is that you can customized your Christmas cards by choosing different templates in their site. You can also upload your own design or photos and they will make it for you. Isn't that cool? These must be unique christmas cards and I'm pretty sure my loved ones and friends would be delighted to receive these cards. I would really love to have these kind of holiday cards to send to my loved ones this coming Christmas season.

Had My Hair Trimmed

I had my hair trimmed a few days ago. My hair has grown and I would have like it to be that way but the problem is I have a falling hair. Everytime after I take a shower and comb my hair, a lot of my hair stick on my comb. I don't know what causes this falling hair but I wish I know the remedy. One of my friends told me to drink fresh carrot juice to prevent falling hair. So I've been drinking fresh carrot juice but I still have falling hair. So I decided to have my hair cut about 2 and 1/2 inches. Would you believe it was my hubby who cut my hair after I took a shower? It's just easy to cut because it was wet and my hair is thin. No need to go to the parlor and I saved money. Hubby is just returning the favor because I'm the one giving him a haircut too. He doesn't go to the barber and spend money no more. I just do it for him. We gotta do what we gotta do just to save money huh!

Internet Provider

I'm really getting tired of my internet provider. Right now I'm still using this dial-up connection and my computer really takes ages to download and go to another page. I'm having a stiff neck already gazing the screen and waiting for the page to come up. I really want to switch to another internet provider and avail of DSL or broadband internet connections. I don't know what internet service provider should I contact to provide me a faster internet connection so I browsed the web. It's good I've seen this site that offers internet connections. is an internet service provider which offers services that includes DSL, cable, dial up and satellite. It also offers services like wireless internet connections for notebook computers. You can check out their site and get more info or guide to choosing an internet provider. You can also read there A Brief History of the Internet. They also feature there How to Increase Your Wireless Home Network's Security and many more. I think this is a great website and a good internet service provider.


There are more opps in PPP today and so far I already taken 3 opps. I have a couple to finish before I will go out and continue raking the leaves in our yard. It's good PPP offered more today. Got to make some money before I will do my cleaning. I hope to finish my task soon and rest afterwards. Well, time for paid blogging. See ya...

The Optimist's Creed

Promise Yourself...
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have not time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Good Night!

I'm glad that I reached my maximum posts in PPP for today. There are still more opps there but I can't take them no more. Besides my eyes are already tired and I need to rest and relax. I hope PPP will give more opps tomorrow. I made some money today and I'm really happy. Okay time to turn off this computer and tomorrow again. Nighty night folks.

A Prayer For my Time On The Computer

Gracious God, even in the wondrous tangle of wires and connections, you make yourself known. May my computer be more than a machine of information and become an altar on which I am able to offer my thanks for the abundance of gifts in this richly textured world. As I scan through images, as I learn and explore, as I create and produce, bring my soul to the awareness that I am not alone in this vast world of human energy. Fill me with that energy and give me a heart of gratitude. Amen.

Police Gear Website

I woke up early today and decided to surf the web. I happened to bumped into this website that carries supplies for police officers. I have always admire the police officers' uniforms because I think they look great. I bet this website is where they order most of the police gears and uniforms. They have all kinds of supplies from tactical pants, tactical shirts, footwear, tactical polos, tactical shorts, Galco, gear bags, TDU uniforms, jackets, watches, gloves, etc. Name it and they have it. 5.11 tactical series creates superior products that enhance the safety, accuracy, speed and performance of law enforcement, military and firefighting professionals. Built on a foundation of durability, quality and value, 5.11 tactical leads the industry by delivering functionally innovative gear, head to toe. Also they offer free shipping for all orders over $50.

It's A Nice Day!

Good morning everyone! It such a nice day today because the Lord has made it. The sun is shining and the temperature is nice. Not that cold and I call it a sweater weather. I just finished cooking our lunch and hubby came home to eat. He just went back to work after eating his lunch. So I'm left alone and I have to keep myself busy by taking some opportunities in PPP. I would have been bored without my computer and it makes me company while hubby is out working. So I better grab some more opportunities in PPP and finish my task there. Until then.

Artificial Rocks Factory

I know that many people out there like to decorate their house to make it look beautiful inside and outside. I for instance love to make the front of our house presentable and have that unique look. I had been planting different ornamental plants in our garden and also my hubby bought me a pair of concrete planters for our front yard. Also I want to put a new number for our house so it will be easier to for our friends and family to locate our house. I was thinking that putting our address in a rock would make our house have that unique look. Address plaques, address signs and address markers can be located on a home or business' mailbox or structure, but showcasing them on a rock has always been a popular choice for those with the time and money to find, move and install a typical 1,000 lb. boulder for that purpose. But the problem is it's hard to find a big rock here in Texas. In fact I haven't seen one since I've been here. As I was browsing the internet I came across this Artificial Rocks Factory that sells incredibly lifelike 50-60 lb. "fake rocks" that look and feel natural because they're made from construction-grade cast stone--not fiberglass or polyurethane. Customers can pick any of these four models with a custom rustproof cast aluminum ivy oval address plaque or address sign for up to five 3" characters (numbers or capitalized letters) or up to seven 2" characters (numbers or capitalized letters) in gold on a black background. The Artificial Rocks Factory's parent company, Valley Monuments, Inc. (, is an industry leader in the manufacture of similar construction-grade cast stone products, primarily with bronze plaques for memorials, dedications and awards & recognition. Artificial Rocks Factory offers 20 different models of boulders which are all hollow, approx. one-inch thick, and open at the bottom. Four of the models with the best front angles are available for address and welcome plaques. Customers can pick any of these four models with a custom rustproof cast aluminum ivy oval address plaque or address sign for up to five 3" characters (numbers or capitalized letters) or up to seven 2" characters (numbers or capitalized letters) in gold on a black background. The address and welcome boulders are available in three colors and are shipped to customers' doorsteps via FedEx Ground after the address or welcome plaque is permanently affixed. An anti-theft metal eyebolt is cast inside every address or welcome boulder (easy-to-follow instructions for its use are shipped with each one). These functional landscape accents can be ordered alone or as a set with one or more of the Artificial Rocks Factory's other models without an address plaque or address sign. I'm sure that this artificial rock with our address in it would look great in our front house. It just look so real that you can't tell whether it's real or fake. This is also a great and unique gift for our loved ones this coming Christmas season.

A Prayer For Expressing Gratitude

Gracious God, in the busy-ness of my day, I sometimes forget to stop to thank You for all that is good in my life. My blessings are many and my heart is filled with gratefulness for the gift of living, for the ability to love and be loved, for the opportunity to see the everyday wonders of creation, for sleep and water, for a mind that thinks and a body that feels. I thank you, too, for those things in my life that are less than I would hope them to be. Things that seem challenging, unfair, or difficult. When my heart feels stretched and empty and pools of tears form in my weary eyes, still I rejoice that you are as near to me as my next breath and that in the midst of turbulence, I am growing and learning. In the silence of my soul, I thank you most of all for your unconditional and eternal love. Amen.

Consumer Credit Help

Some people here live beyond their means. They spend more than what they are making. They use their Credit card to buy what they want and later on they will be in debt and can't pay. People like to shop and shop but they don't think of the consequences if they will be able to pay or not. Debt has become a daunting reality for thousands of Americans who fail to meet their credit card payments. Now here’s a chance to explain how credit card repair and debt consolidation can benefit customers and help relieve them of credit card debt.

Blogger Awards

I was given these awards by Norm. Thanks my friend. It was such a pleasure to receive these awards.

Sleep Number Beds

Our mattress is already old and needs replacement. Hubby is already complaining that the mattress is hard on his back that's why he likes to sleep in the other room where the mattress is soft. The problem is that bed is only a full size bed. There's hardly a space for both of us. Hubby is chubby so we need more space to sleep in. We really need a new queen size bed with soft queen size mattress. Hubby has been having lower back pains so we really need a comfortable bed to sleep in. I've been searching the internet for a good bed and mattress. I heard that select comfort of Sleep Number Beds are adjustable and comfortable. This is being offered by The quiet, Digital Numeric Inflation System allows you to adjust the softness or firmness of the mattress with the simple push of a button. Mattresses are also available that allow you to adjust each side of the mattress separately. They offer a very reasonable price and actually it's the lowest price guaranteed. You can also avail of their 30 day-risk-free trial and fast and free shipping. I'm sure this select comfort bed will suit my hubby and me and make us sleep better.

Friendship Message

I got this friendship message from my online friend Nancy. Thank you very much for always remembering me. You're such a sweet lady. It's nice to have friends like you.

Singles Website

A lot of people nowadays turn to the internet to find their future lifemates. Why not? You can find different people there of different nationalities. In fact I found my husband in a dating site in the internet. Since I got married to a foreigner, a lot of my friends in my country had been requesting me to find also a future husband for them. There are a lot of dating sites now but caught my attention. This is a singles website and I am pretty sure that this is a good site to recommend to my single friends who are in search of their elusive Mr. Right. The site had reviewed different dating sites like and so searchers will have an idea of what dating site they gonna choose. So singles out there, why not try the services of this site.

Online Coupon Site

Shopping online is a lot easier and hassle free than going to the store. When I go shopping I am very fond of using Coupon because I can save money online. offers discount coupons so you can save money when you shop online. I am planning to buy a Dell laptop and I can use Dell coupons that this site offers. Also I need ink for my printer and I can use their 123Inkjets coupon codes that the site offers. It's really good to shop in this site. The site is updated on a daily basis with offers from hundreds of merchants. Also visitors to the site do save money using their coupons. The site's layout is very simple so that users will be able to locate coupons quickly. So shop at this for the coming holidays.

Just 1 Opps for Today

It's already night time but so far I had only taken 1 opps in PPP today. Those opps are taken so fast. I've been having problems in submitting my posts to PPP in my other blog. I already missed a lot of opportunities. I have no problem submitting my posts in this blog but the problem is this blogspot is always excluded in most of the opps. I've only begun my paid blogging last July in other sites, and last September 6 in PPP. So far I had made some money since then. It's really good that we have this opportunity to make money online. Thanks to the world wide web and of course to our dear Lord for He is the source of everything in this wide world. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!!!

My two nephews in the Philippines are very fond of video games. In fact both of them are always playing games in their computer. Last time they requested me to buy them a gameboy. I sent then one a few months ago. Now it seems that they got tired of it and now they want a nintendo. Well, I have to earn first before buying one for them. While browsing the net, I found this site that sells Nintendo NES used Consoles and Games. also sells used vintage video games like used super nintendo console for a very cheap price. I need to buy from this site these games so I can send it to my nephews.


Gracious God, help me simply stop for a moment to pay attention to the beauty of creation all around me. I am so grateful for water so still it can reflect the color of the world; for trees that are now shedding off their leaves this fall season; for air so warm it relaxes my body and soul; for cool breezes that caress and awaken; for clouds that shift and puff; for azure skies that stretch beyond sight. Let me remember to simply stop for a moment and be filled with the gifts you have so abundantly given. Amen.

New York City Pass

New York City is one of the cities that's most visited by a lot of tourists. They have lots of tourist attractions there. They call that city The Big Apple because a lot of business are going on there. I haven't been to NYC and I would love to visit that place. I would like to see the Statue of Liberty because I heard and seen it in the movies when I was still in the Philippines. Now that I'm here in the states I would like to see it. I've just seen a website that's offering New York CityPass to visit the 6 tourist attractions there. I think this would be the best gift anyone can give to their love ones this coming holiday season. CityPass offers the best of New York City with tickets to six of the city’s icon attractions in a pocket-sized booklet. The best thing is you can buy the tickets for half the price. Wow! We need to take advantage of this great offer. It's perfect for first timer visitors like me. New York CityPass is an affordable and unique gift for this Holiday. Each booklet has a ticket to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the new Greek and Roman galleries, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Guggenheim Museum and the American Museum of Natural History. Plus, a trip to the top of the Empire State Building Observatory and tour of the Manhattan skyline from the water aboard a Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise along with a map, public transportation information and insider tips on the best time to visit each attraction. CityPass saves time by allowing visitors to skip most main entrance ticket lines and it saves money, because New York CityPass is sold at 50% off the combined admission price. A New York CityPass is $65 for adults (compared to $130 price if the tickets were purchased separately), and $49 for youths 12-17 (a value of $89.50). The CityPass Winter Special runs December 15 to March 15. You can begin using your CityPass booklet December 15 or later and your booklet will be valid until March 15 giving you up to three entire months to use the six tickets in the booklet. It's good I've seen this site. I need to take advantage of the offer and see NYC's best for a cheaper price.

Thank You Lord!

Yesterday while I was checking my blogs in PPP I found out that this blog of mine has now a page rank of 1. It's really a blessing because I can take more opps now in PPP along with my other blog. This blog has just been approved in PPP and then the next day after it got approved it had a pagerank. I am so thankful to the Lord for all His blessings and provisions.

Digital Cameras

Since the digital cameras became so popular, my passion for photography became more intense. I just love taking pictures. My hubby told me that he doesn't have a lot of photos until he married me. My first digital camera was a Sony cybershot but it was stolen early this year so my hubby bought me another one which is Nikon coolpix. It takes good photos but not as good as my Sony did. If I have the money, I always wanted to own a Canon SLR. I heard that this one takes good photos and have a lot of good features. One feature I want to have in a camera is that I can focus and zoom it and take a picture from a distance and the outcome will still be vivid. I love taking photos whenever my hubby and I go to places we've never been before and also on special occasions. I also love taking photos of nature because I'm a nature lover. I just love to capture special moments in my camera. I heard that they are selling these digital picture frames that can play slideshows of my digital pictures. Just insert the memory card and you can watch all the photos you've taken. I want to own one of these. I just visited their site and they sell different styles and models. It would be cool to own one of these.

Our garage really needs a complete makeover, from the ceiling down to the flooring. Our garage floor is an old concrete and have cracks. I want to replace it to make it look better. It's good I've seen this site that sells garage flooring in the internet. They offer different kinds of flooring like tiles to cover the floor and gives a nice pattern. They also sell professional grade epoxy to protect your new concrete floor making it easy to clean.

Get Car Quotes, Loans & More

When buying a car, you need to check and compare prices that's why it's good to check the internet first. I found a site that offers a good deal for cars and will give you Honda Car Quote if that's the kind of car you're looking for. I think Honda are pretty neat cars and they have a good car mileage. sells new cars, and also offers car loans and car refinance. Never pay full price for a new car when you buy at this store. You can also compare quotes at with wholesale prices by letting dealers compete for your business. You will also get up to 2 quotes – it's fast and free. This is a great site for those planning to buy a car. So check it out folks.

More Opps!!!

I have taken 5 posts in PPP today and I have one more to go then I'm done. The good thing is, those I wasn't able to submit in my other blog, I was able to submit when I posted it here. So my effort didn't go to waste really. I just copied and pasted the post here. Thank God I didn't delete them last night.

Ultimate Paintball

I am not really into guns or even toy guns because these are for males. My nephews have toy guns and my hubby have 2 pellet guns. I haven't seen my hubby used his pellet guns though. He's just too busy in his work and during his off, he just watch tv in the house. This morning I happened to see a website that offers paintball gun package online. They sell different kinds of paintball guns and also tippmann paintball markers in their online store. When hubby came home for lunch, I asked him what are they because I have no idea. He said paintball guns are used for sports but is intended for adults only. He asked why. I told him I just saw in the internet that they are selling it with discounted price. Their top selling guns are Tippmann A-5, Tippmann 98 Custom, Smart Parts Ion, and Spyder Pilot ACS. Ultimate Paintball offers the best prices with free shipping. It's my first time to see these kind of guns and I thought of writing it here.

PPP Made My Day!

I'm so glad that this blog of mine has just been approved today by PPP after almost 2 weeks of waiting. I thank God for I can post more and make more money by blogging. One more thing that made me happy today is that all my posts now are auto approved by PPP. I got an e-mail from them today informing me that my posts now are approved automatically. I don't have to wait for a few weeks before they approve it. Also my overall tack rating in PPP is 4 out of 5. Thanks PPP. You made my day.

Hotel Reservations

My hubby and I have been wanting to go back to the Philippines but we have to come up with the money first before we go back there. Besides we have to settle all the things that need to be settled here before taking off. My hubby wanted to stay there for long or let's just say he wants to stay there for good. We'll just come back here for a visit or for a vacation once in a while. My hubby loves it there in the Philippines. When we'll go back there, I'm planning to book for a hotel where we can stay in Manila before heading to my hometown which is almost 4 hours drive from the airport. I know we will be exhausted after a long flight from here to the Philippines. I just can't sleep in the plane so my hubby and I need to rest and sleep before going to a long trip again. We will need to book in a hotel in Manila to rest after a long flight. I already checked Hotel Reservations and I've seen in their website that they serve all over the world so that includes my beloved country Philippines. I browsed the different hotels in Manila and I learned that Hotel Reservations offer competitive rates. They also offer discounts when you avail of their services and you can get as high as $100 rebates. When you book through the internet, they will give you special internet rate. When we will be in the Philippines, I want to take my hubby to places that he haven't seen yet. Although he has seen already quite a few places when he stayed there for almost a year, there are still a lot of beautiful places he has never seen. So I will show him the other tourist spots there and of course we will need a hotel to stay. That's where Hotel Reservations comes in the picture again. This is really a great site, just make reservations by calling them toll free or log in to the internet and make reservations.

My Personal Testimony (Part II)

This is a continuation of my previous post. I can say that my life is very colorful, full of drama, joys and trials. Sometimes just thinking of making my life story open to others who barely know me make me feel uneasy but I am doing this just to show how the good Lord has worked in my life and that everything that happened in my life, God had a purpose. You have read in my previous blog how a very big trial has hit me and just more than a year after, another big trial fell upon me. I had a boyfriend whom I loved so much and he was very loving and affectionate to me. He had been with me when I was in my lowest moments in my life. He had seen what I’ve been through when I was battling the cancer and he had accompanied me during my chemotherapy for 4 consecutive months. During those times that I thought I was going to die, he didn’t leave me. He stayed by my side. I was even ashamed to face him at that time because I looked so ugly, no hair because of the chemo and I was so thin and dark. I didn’t want to face him at first but he insisted to talk to me. I told him I want to break-up because I didn’t know if I’m going to live or die soon. I told him that he can find a healthy and pretty girlfriend and I’m setting him free. He’s a good-looking guy and a lot of ladies had a crush on him in our town. He didn’t want to and he told me that he really loves me and he said that my hair will grow and that he already expected my hair to fall out after the chemo. So he has been with me through the bad times in my life. He’s seen me without my hair and he has witnessed the worst effects of chemo on me but he never gave me up. Whenever I was having a throw-up he was there massaging my back and giving me support. He went with me to the hospital every time I went for chemo and check up. I’ve seen his faithfulness and his love for me. Until I recovered everything went smoothly again but not for long. My BF has been watching in the tv this religious program and he got impressed with the minister because he seems to know a lot about the Bible. The audience asked that minister questions and he answered and quoted verses in the Bible from memory. So without me knowing, my BF went to find a church affiliated to that program and he studied their doctrines and got baptized. At first I was impressed at my BF because he read the Bible and has been taking notes in their doctrines. Until he told me about their doctrines then I got the big shock of my life. They don’t believe in the Holy Trinity and they don’t believe in the original or inherited sin either. They only believe in God the Father and God the Son but don’t believe in the Holy Spirit. So I started watching that tv program of that minister and I saw and heard how he twisted the meaning of the verses in the Bible. He also blatantly criticized all the other religions and he even cursed on tv. So I discerned that he is a false teacher/minister and that their religion is a cult. The Lord has really prepared me for this because during the time that I was in Baguio City having my radiation and chemotherapy, I read my Bible daily and I even highlighted those verses that really blessed and inspired me. God had been talking to me through His Word not knowing that my faith in Him will be put again to the test. So every time my BF came in to our house we always have an argument about our beliefs and I even brought out the Bible and read to him and explain it to him but he had another interpretation. It’s the interpretation of course of their false teacher. One time I got so upset because my brother had a birthday celebration and my BF came but he didn’t eat because he said it’s against their doctrines to eat if the celebrant is of another religion. How absurd! I even quoted to him 1 Timothy 4:1-5 but he won’t accept it. Then he wanted to invite me to attend their church so I can see how they pray and sing but I refused. He said that when I invited him to my church he came with me many times so I should go with him too but I declined. I said I’m already content with my church because they’ve been with me when I was sick and they prayed for me and they are my prayer warriors. Also it’s in my church that I got saved and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. He said that he would be praying for me so I would join him in his church but I told him no need to pray for me about joining his church because I already cancelled all his prayers and it won’t be effective. He said he is the man and he should be the one to be followed. I was really in spiritual warfare that time. He even proposed marriage to me but he said we will get married in civil ceremony or in their church. I told him “No way, if I will get married it will be in my church and will be officiated by our Pastor.” He said he really wants to marry me even though I can’t have kids anymore because of the chemo and it really made me cry. I know that he really loves me. His mom was very fond of me too and she always cook for me whenever I would go to their house. I asked him one time if now that he’s been faithfully attending that church if he’s sure that he is saved and he said nobody knows for sure. That’s why he’s doing good works so that he might be saved. I quoted to him Ephesians 2: 8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” It just fell on deaf ears because he’s already been brainwashed by their false doctrines. I felt so frustrated. Then I had this dream that my BF and I were talking when I saw a sack and something inside it was moving. He went to open it and I told him not to open it because it might be a snake. But he opened it and it was really a snake. What puzzled me is that the snake crawled past my BF and crawled in my direction and tried to bite me and then I woke up. I told my dream to a pastor and he interpreted my dream. He said the snake is the devil and the reason he went past my BF because he was already his and he wanted to attack me because I’m not his. So I had to make a decision. Satan had reminded me all the good things that my BF had done to me especially when I was so sick and he didn’t leave me. Even my aunt told me that I can’t find a man as good as him and who really loves me. My father and my siblings are very fond of him too. He used to give my father haircuts so I when I told my father that I broke-up with my BF he felt sad. Satan told me that no man would love me no more because of my illness. But I have to stand on my faith and my beliefs. The Bible said in 2 Cor. 6:14, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbeliever: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness ? and what communion has light with darkness.” I prayed to the Holy Spirit for guidance and direction. Though it hurt me so bad I decided to break-up with my BF after 4 years of our relationship. I told God that I love Him more than any man in this world and that when I will see Him face to face and He will ask what I gave up for Him, I will tell Him my boyfriend whom I love. My BF was really sad that night when I told him my decision. I saw the hurt in his face and he had to go home earlier than expected but what can I do? I can’t accept his doctrines and beliefs which are contradictory to mine. I cried and cried that night. It took me a few months to get over it. I remember my sister asked me that time why is it that I have a lot of trials in life. I really don’t know why but I only know that God won’t give us trials we can’t bear. A few months after the break-up, my father passed away in February 2000. So it was another trial in our family. But with God’s grace I slowly overcame the hurt and the pain of losing 2 people that I dearly love. I can’t handle it without the help of God. Life has to go on. In 2001, I met a guy in the Internet from Oregon and I corresponded with him for 9 months. He planned to meet me personally but it didn’t happen because he’s not God’s will for me. He met a Filipina in Oregon and decided to marry her. I was so hurt again and I felt bitterness and hatred in my heart because I felt cheated and broken-hearted. But the Lord has dealt with me and later on I forgave the guy. If God can forgive me, then I can forgive other people. It made me feel lighter and the burden in my heart slowly vanished. I prayed to God that if it’s His will that I get married, then He will give me a man who is a Christian, one who loves the Lord and who has the same beliefs as mine and also one who will love and accept me for what and who I am and despite the illness I’ve been through. I also prayed to God that if it’s His will that I will remain single all my life, then I would still be happy serving and praising Him. Every night I prayed to God for the right man to come along in my life. Then on May 2002, I met George on the Internet at Christian CafĂ©. He is a widower for 5 years and he’s a Christian. We corresponded for 3 months and I told him everything that happened to me, my illness and my break-up with my ex-BF. Before I emailed him about it I had to pray to God and to the Holy Spirit for guidance. I prayed to God that if George can accept me despite the illness that befell me, then he is God’s will for me. If he will get turn-off then he’s not meant to be. So after I prayed, I e-mailed George and told him everything and the title of my e-mail was My Personal Testimony. The next day I was in the school’s division office because I had to submit some papers there when my cell phone rang. It was George and he told me he had read my e-mail and was touched and he was even teary-eyed when he read it. I asked if he still love me and he said yes. I was so happy and I knew that time deep in my heart that he is God’s will for me. My world became colorful again and my heart was aglow. Here’s the e-mail he sent to me after reading my e-mail. I printed all his emails to me and kept it. I re-read them over and over and it really made me love him more. Here it goes, “My dearest darling angel, I read your letter and tears came to my eyes, it made me LOVE you even more and I knew you truly were sent to me by God. The LORD had kept you alive because HE knew that someday you could be an encouragement and uplifting, a very special person, a LOVING ANGEL for me. After I read your letter, I fell to my knees, prayed unto Him to forgive me for being so selfish. I had no problems, praise Him for giving you to me. My faith was restored by just reading your testimony. LISA I MOST DEARLY LOVE YOU. LISA you are the WOMAN I HAVE PRAYED FOR, THE WOMAN GOD HAS SENT ME TO LIVE OUT MY LIFE WITH. The LORD has given me life again. He forgave me for turning away from Him then accepted me back in the flock…LISA I LOVE YOU. I got to close for now. John 3:16. I thank God He also gave me YOU..." George. My tears were flowing down while reading this. They were tears of joy. The Lord has finally answered my prayers. He gave me the man I prayed for, one who loves me unconditionally. I love George very much next to God. On August 25, 2003 George came to the Philippines and met me and my family and on September 11, 2002 we got married in our church. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. It was a whirlwind romance so to speak. On September 30, 2003 I arrived here in the US with my husband. God is really amazing! He answered my prayers and had given me my heart’s desire. God is sooo good. I can't thank Him enough. God is awesome! God deserves all the glory, honor and thanksgiving from me. “He is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Ephesians 3:20. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
