Fix Your Auto

When we still have our old truck, I kept bugging my hubby to have it repainted. I told him it would look a lot better if it will have new paint. It's good we have traded it now for a van. If your car needs some work to be done like body repair, just take your car to auto body colorado springs and they will do the work for you. I'm sure you will be happy with their services and your car will be restored like a brand new one.

Summer Wear

Yesterday, the highest temperature was 102 degrees. That's too hot for my bones. I don't even want to go out during daytime. I'd rather stay in the house and blog or watch tv. I only go out in the morning when it's not yet hot. I go out to water my garden. Then I'm in the house the rest of the day. I love to wear tank tops and shorts while inside the house. A couple of weeks ago, my hubby and I went to Target and I've seen some shirts and tank tops on sale at the juniors' section. The large size of juniors' wear fits me good. I asked my hubby to buy some for me. Sure he did and take a look at my loot.

Summer here in Texas gets too hot. It's hotter than our summer in the Philippines.

Abra Cadabra!!!

My parents used to take me and my siblings to magic shows whenever there was a fiesta in our town or even in the nearby towns in the Philippines when we were kids. I was so fascinated watching those magicians do their thing on the stage. I was so amazed and I often asked my parents how did they do that. They just answered me and told me it's all magic. The magicians were real good and for a kid like me, that was so fantastic. So every year, during town fiestas, we always go and watch magic shows. My family is a fan of it.

One of the most popular magician who is known all over the world is the legendary magician Harry Houdini who was a popular illusionist. He was so popular during his time. His name was a by-word in the world of magic. Nowadays, there are new and modern great illusionists and one that stood out is Criss Angel. Oh my, this magician is really, really goodI If you have seen some of his performances on tv, you would be amazed and you will wonder how on earth did he do that! Do you wanna see him perform live?

Are You Allergic to Wireless Internet?

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS) is a condition in which people are highly sensitive to electromagnetic fields. In an area such as a wireless hotspot, they experience pain or other symptoms.

People with EHS experience a variety of symptoms including headache, fatigue, nausea, burning and itchy skin, and muscle aches. These symptoms are subjective and vary between individuals, which makes the condition difficult to study, and has left experts divided about the validity of such claims.

More than 30 studies have been conducted to determine what link the condition has to exposure to electromagnetic fields from sources such as radar dishes, mobile phone signals and, Wi-Fi hotspots.

Can Grilling Meat Cause Cancer?

The American Institute of Cancer Research is urging everyone to rethink the pastime of barbecuing meat.

After analyzing the results of 7,000 studies, the Institute concluded that grilling any meat -- whether red, white or fish -- produces potent carcinogens.

The high heat of grilling reacts with proteins in red meat, poultry and fish, creating heterocyclic amines, which are linked to cancer. Another form of cancer-causing agents, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, are created when juices from meats drip and hit the heat source. They then rise in smoke and can stick to the meat.

The Institute took particular aim at processed meats like hot dogs, sausages, bacon, ham, pastrami, salami and any meat that has been salted, smoked or cured. The chemicals used to preserve the meat increase the production of cancer-causing compounds, regardless of how the meat is cooked.

The Institute’s report said it “could find no amount of processed meat that is safe to eat.”

Wal-Mart Has Everything

One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Joe says to Mike behind him, "My elbow hurts like heck. I guess I'd better see a doctor."

"Listen, you don't have to spend that kind of money," Mike replies.

"There's a diagnostic computer down at Wal-Mart. Just give it a urine sample and the computer will tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars . . . A lot cheaper than a doctor."

So, Joe deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to Wal-Mart.

He deposits ten dollars, and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits.

Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout:

"You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks. Thank you for shopping @ Wal-Mart."

That evening, while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Joe began
wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and a sperm sample for good measure.

Joe hurries back to Wal-Mart, eager to check the results. He deposits ten
dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results.

The computer prints the following:

1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. (Aisle 9)
2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo. (Aisle 7)
3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab.
4. Your wife is pregnant. Twins. They aren't yours. Get a lawyer.
5 If you don't stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better!

Thank you for shopping @ Wal-Mart.

Using Your ATM/Credit Card At The Pump

I received this e-mail yesterday and I just want to share it here. My hubby had been a victim of this when he used my Paypal debit card in purchasing gas. My debit card was charged and additional $40 dollars when my hubby bought gas in the gas station. We were so puzzled how it happened until I read this e-mail. So this is how they do it. Read on...

Jim just told me about something that happened to one of his coworkers. She used her credit/debit card to purchase gas at the pump (like most of us do). She received her receipt like normal. However, when she checked her statement, there were 2 $50 charges added in addition to her purchase. Upon investigation, she found out that because she did not press the 'clear' button on the pump, the employee inside the store was able to use her card to purchase his/her own gas! To keep this from happening, after you get your receipt, you must press the 'CLEAR' button or your information will be stored until the next customer inserts their card. Be sure to tell all your friends/family so that this doesn't happen to them!

Worlds Largest Swimming Pool

If you like doing laps in the swimming pool, you might want to stock up on the energy drinks before diving in to this one.

It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres, had a 115 ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water.

Yesterday the Guinness Book of Records named the vast pool beside the sea in Chile as the biggest in the world.

But if you fancy splashing out on one of your own - and you have the space to accommodate it - then beware: This one took five years to build, cost nearly 1 bill ion an d the annual maintenance bill will be 2 million.

The man-made saltwater lagoon has been attracting huge crowds to the San Alfonso del Mar resort at Algarrobo, on

Chile's southern coast, since it opened last month.

Its turquoise waters are so crystal clear that you can see the bottom even in the deep end.

It dwarfs the world's second biggest pool, the Orthlieb - nicknamed the Big Splash - in Morocco , which is a mere 150 yards long and 100 yards wide. An Olympic size pool measures some 50 yards by 25 yards.

Chile's monster pool uses a computer- controlled suction and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent circulation, drawing it in from the ocean at one end and pumping it out at the other.

The sun warms the water to 26 C, nine degrees warmer than the adjoining sea.

Chilean biochemist Fernando Fischmann, whose Crystal Lagoons Corporation designed the pool, said advanced engineering meant his company could build 'an impressive artificial paradise' even in inhospitable areas.

'As l ong as we have access to unlimited seawater, we can make it work, and it causes no damage to the ocean.'

All I can say is WOW!

Colorful Flowers

I just love flowers and I love planting flowering plants. My flowers are blooming right now. They are perennials that's why they come back each year. I have day lilies, roses, ferns with white flowers, lantana, sweet william, hydrangea, canas and mums. I water them everyday and if I can't do it, I ask my hubby to water them. Flowers are so colorful and I enjoyed looking at them.

Zebra Dilemma Solved...

A Zebra dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. As he enters, he asks St. Peter, "I have a question that's haunted me all of my days on earth: Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?"

St. Peter said, "That's a question only God can answer." So the zebra went off in search of God.

When he found Him, the zebra asked, "God, please - I must know. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?"

God simply replied "You are what you are."

The zebra returned to see St. Peter once more, who asked him, "Well, did God resolve your query for you?"

The zebra looked puzzled. "No sir, God simply said 'You are what you are.'"

St. Peter smiled and said to the zebra, "Well then, there you are. You are white with black stripes."

The zebra asked St. Peter, "How do you know that for certain?"

"Because," said St. Peter, "If you were black with white stripes, God would have said, "You is what you is."

Witness Testimonial

What if I would be in a situation that I will become a witness and will be required to reinvent myself through the Witness Protection Program? It would be hard to adjust to a new life, relocate and be away from my friends and loved ones. Life would not be the same but life has to go on. I would be relocating to the country and be away from the city life. I would have to change my job and perhaps I would just prefer to work at home so I would not be in contact to a lot of people. In that way I can protect myself from anybody who would be on the look out for me. I would have to
change my name too and of course I would have to familiarize myself to my new environment. I bet I would have a hard time doing it at first but after a while I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Speaking of being a witness and relocating, watch out for the USA Network's new original series In Plain Sight which opened last June 1st. This is a new crime drama wherein Mary Shannon is a US Marshall for the Witness Protection Program in this action TV show. This is the kind of show that my hubby loves to watch. Watch out folks and don't miss out.

3 Blondes

Three Blondes were all applying for the last available position on theTexas Highway Patrol. The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, 'So y'all want to be cops, huh?'

The blondes all nodded.

The detective got up, opened a file drawer and pulled out a folder. Sitting back down, he opened it and pulled out a picture, and said, 'To be a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities such as scars and so forth.'

So saying, he stuck the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it after about two seconds.

'Now,' he said, 'did you notice any distinguishing features about this man?'

The blonde immediately said, 'Yes, I did He has only one eye!'

The detective shook his head and said, 'Of course he has only one eye in this picture! It's a profile of his face! You're dismissed!'

The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office.

The detective then turned to the second blonde, said, 'What about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?'

'Yes! He only has one ear!'

The detective put his head in his hands and exclaimed, 'Didn't you hear what I just told the other lady? This is a profile of the man's face! Of course you can only see one ear!! You're excused too!'
The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.

The detective turned his attention to the third and last blonde and said,'This is probably a waste of time, but ... He flashed the photo in her face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it, saying, 'All right, did you notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?'

The blonde said, 'I sure did.. This man wears contact lenses.'

The detective frowned, took another look at the picture and began looking at some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the blonde with a puzzled expression and said, 'You're absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world could you tell that by looking at his picture?'

The blonde rolled her eyes and said, 'Well, Helloooo! With only one eye and one ear, he certainly can't wear glasses.'
