Only a few more hours before Christmas Day, are you excited?

Google sure know how to greet its patrons, if you visit Google's home today, December 24th, you'll see their holidays greetings with a cute doodle as always.

I don't get to update this blog so much but we'll see what 2013 will have for us.

So woohoo Earth! A billion more years to you!


Instagram on the Web

No comments:
Two days ago, Instagram released their own version of a web app, or as they to call it Instagram Web Profile

With a user interface similar to Facebook, users and stalkers followers won't encounter difficulties in using the Instagram web app. It's also a great way to showcase your iPhoneography to your friends and family who doesn't have the Instagram app in their phones.

I personally like the convenience of answering comments in my photos. However, users cannot use this web app to browse their friend's feed, unless you know their username then you go directly to their Instagram web profiles.


The Importance Of Legal Awareness

No comments:
Reaching the legal age would also mean knowing all your legal rights and responsibilities. Not everyone has the resources to know everything about the law that’s why lawyers exist.

Every society or even community should be living under a common law. This is to maintain the status quo, to protect property, vested rights, and established relationships. It is even considered to be the backbone of the society.

Of the several age groups that we have, the minors or the children and the elders are those who need legal assistance. These people often time don’t have the capacity to exercise their own rights because of mental capacity and health related issues.

For children, their parents are always there for them or someone who’s in charge of their welfare. However, for elders who are no longer in touch with their children, they would most likely need the services of Dallas elder law lawyer. They will offer services that will cover the phases of the Elder Law; planning and crisis.

Having a Dallas elder law attorney will ensure your parents’ future and perhaps yours as well. Time will cone that you can no longer understand all the terms written in a legal document. What matters most is to be assured to you will get what you truly deserve. Elder law is not too complex to understand as long there will be lawyers who are willing to help you out. You can easily find their law firms in the community while some already have their online offices.

Having someone who is well versed with the law is of great advantage. If you know your rights and privileges as a citizen of the state, then no one could ever step down on you. It is considered to be one of the most valuable knowledge that person could have.


The Comfort of Carpeted Floorings

Have you tried walking inside a carpeted auditorium? Or perhaps set foot inside an elegant hotel room? The carpeted floor adds up the comfortable feel that can never be achieved by any other flooring types out there.

Aside from the mere comfort, carpets on floors play an important role in eliminating impact noise through sound absorption. That’s why it is very ideal for music studios or in your very own media room.

Carpeted floors are also best known in retaining warmth in the entire house or room. During cold seasons, carpeted floors are the best option to have.

If you want to place some carpet in Montoursville that you’ve been longing to place inside your house. Just imagine how comfortable to walk into a carpeted bedroom or living room. If your flooring is carpeted, you can be assured that it would be from slips and similar incidents. You can be assured that your kids can play as long as they want in your well carpeted floors

Carpets also have this dust-trapping property thus preventing it from spreading in the entire place. However, these dusts should stay in the carpet for the longest time because once accumulated, it can also be a medium for bacterial growth.

Important Vinyl Flooring Advantages To Note

No comments:
How much does it take to have safety flooring? It is actually priceless because safe flooring would also mean a secure building or house. This is the part of the house that requires top of the quality material because this one holds its entirety.

Choosing the right kind of flooring would need ample time but there is no need for a professional help. There are several types of flooring out there but having the vinyl options is best one to have these days.

Vinyl floors are best known for its resiliency. Because of its elasticity, it can return to its original shape after some tolerable impact. That is why it is considered to be the best flooring option for kitchen, playroom and bathroom.  

Vinyl flooring, may it may be in sheets or tiles are best known for its anti-slip quality thus safety can’t be compromised. Who would want to tip over in your own house right?

As to aesthetic purposes, vinyl flooring can blend in easily and can even enhance an interior environment. Compared to ceramic tiles, it can provide a warmer feel and best suited for colder seasons. Vinyl flooring is an all-in-one option after all. It may not be that cheap compared to other flooring  but having all the mentioned advantages, it’s all worth it.


Google Doodle: Clara Schumann 193rd Birthday

 Google Doodle features Clara Schumann's 193rd Birthday.
Clara Schumann (13 September 1819 – 20 May 1896) was a German musician and composer, considered one of the most distinguished pianists of the Romantic era. She exerted her influence over a 61-year concert career, changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and the tastes of the listening public. Her husband was the composer Robert Schumann. She and her husband encouraged Johannes Brahms, and she was the first pianist to give public performances of some of Brahms' works, notably the Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel.


Gift Ideas for Grandparents

No comments:
In many parts of the world, people celebrate Grandparents’ Day during the month of September. Like any occasions that commemorate familial bonds, Grandparents’ Day is when we show our appreciation for the people whose existence has made ours possible. Most often than not, this appreciation is shown through gifts and other trinkets that, in their own special way, tell these wonderful people that they are lover.

Many children are particularly close to their grandmas and grandpas probably because grandparents have the tendency to spoil them. This is one reason why most grandchildren save up so they can buy their grandparents small tokens of gratitude. Of course, there are other occasions where it’s only proper to bestow gifts for grandparents and seniors, and it’s not just during Grandparents’ Day.

For instance, when they are welcoming a new addition to their family, it’s a common practice to give gifts to grandparents. Evidently, congratulations are in order for everyone related to the baby, including the grandparents.

Everyday Diabetes Organizer
It’s a good thing it’s very easy to browse for gifts these days, what with websites like the ParentGiving store where a plethora of gifts for parents and grandparents await people. They have gadgets, book holders, medicine organizers, massagers, walkers, haircut kits, canes, and even clothes for grandmas and grandpas. Actually, the list is endless. What’s more, the items are priced affordably.

Hence, if you’re looking for that one perfect gift that would surely light a smile on the face of your grandparents, all you need to do is browse the website and order away.


Starting all over again

Hey guys! So what do you think of my new blog template?

Start All Over Again Blogger template

I've been meaning to change this blog design for ages! But finally inspiration struck me and here it comes. Of course, the credit is not all mine, this design is based on Blogger's Simple template and just modified it. I know I still need a lot to learn in creating a Blogger template but I think I'm off to a good start.

In case you are wondering, my old blog design is this:

cutest blog on the block free background 

It was also based on Simple template but I used a free background from The Cutest Blog on the Block website.

The blog header is still missing and I cannot think of a blog header for this so I'm just leaving it as is.

So what do you think? I'm kind of new to this color scheme but I kind of like it.


Vacation Overload In Italy

If you want to witness one of the world’s most impressive country-wide art galleries, it should be Italy that you should visit. If you happen to browse the internet to look for Italy holiday packages, you would find several choices of museums or historical churches with superb sculptures.

In Florence for example, even non-art enthusiasts can’t resist to visit Michael Angelo’s magnificent sculpture of the Biblical hero David. It is now located at the Accademia Gallery and a replica was placed on its original location in Piazza Della Signoria. The latter can also be described as an arcade of historical sculptures like statues of Cosmos I di Merdici, Fountain of Neptune and a lot more.

For those who would want to experience Italy’s marine life, the islands of Sicily are the best places to go. Laghetto delle Ondine, Rabbit Beach and the beautiful Lo Specchio di Venere are just few of the best spots of Sicily to visit. Might as well include the stunning view of the Stromboli Volcano to complete the package. 

Who could ever forget to include Venice? Riding their ever famous gondolas while exploring the Grand Canal is a ‘must-do’ thing while viewing the Renaissance-old palaces surrounding it.

Italy is one of the must-visit places of the world. If you want something grand and prestigious, then Italy is the place to be.

Google Doodle: Araw ng Kalayaan ng Pilipinas


Google gives tribute to Philippines Independence Day for 2012. 


#itsmorefuninthePhilippines Rider Dog

The infamous line Only in the Philippines is very much applicable in this scenario.

We saw this this dog riding a motorcycle while driving by Julia Vargas Avenue going to SM Megamall.  It looks like their normal route since I saw a few traffic enforcers waving at them. It's cool and weird at the same time.

In case you are wondering, that's a TV network logo on his coat. Not sure if it's part of an exchange deal with the network or it's the dog owner's way of calling for their attention. Either way, it's not really a safe ride for the dog, even if it's wearing a helmet.

When you find the perfect apartment, everything miraculously falls in order. Finding the best apartment and living a life of luxury does not happen by pure luck. When you gather information and make choices based on your preferences, you can increase your chances of living the good life in an awesome apartment.

Finding an Apartment in a Great Neighborhood

The neighborhood that you choose almost always impacts your happiness in an apartment. Some people enjoy units in lively, vibrant neighborhoods where they can easily walk to commercial areas. For these people, the best New Orleans apartments are often in the French Quarter and Garden District.

Some people want to live in areas that offer privacy. If you prefer living in apartments that offer a little more peace and quiet, then you might like New Orleans' City Park or Lakeview.

Get an Apartment with Terrific Features

If you want a truly luxurious life, you have to find an apartment that offers terrific features. Some of the best apartments give you state-of-the-art appliances, exercise facilities, and enhanced security features. Some units even have services that can help you keep your private places clean. Instead of spending your time scrubbing floors, you can get out and enjoy yourself.

Choose an Apartment that Makes Life Fun

If you like throwing parties, the best apartments will have rooms that let you get down and have fun without worrying about cleaning up later. Party rooms can vary significantly from unit to unit. Sometimes it just means a room where residents can gather. Other apartment buildings have party rooms with hot tubs, fully stocked bars, and attendants who collect coats and serve appetizers. When you want to have a fun night, it really helps to have an apartment that makes it easy.

Affordable Apartments Can Make Life More Luxurious

Choosing an affordable apartment means that you can allocate money to other things in life. Instead of spending every cent on a big, feature-filled apartment, you can save money by choosing one that offers nice features without going outside of your budget. When you have enough money left over at the end of the month, you can spend it on long, luxurious dinners, buying nice clothes, or saving for vacations.
Your needs will differ from those of other people, so it is impossible to say that one apartment is absolutely better than all others. Instead, you should look at your options and choose the best apartment that matches your budget and needs. That way, you get to enjoy the best things in life without worrying about money.

What Are Ceramic Rings?

No comments:
Ceramic is fairly new to the jewelry industry. In fact 10 years ago no one had heard of them. Now ceramic wedding bands make up a large portion of black wedding bands. They have quickly become more popular than black tungsten because they resist scratching better and the color of them never fades. If you like an alternative look you should really look at getting a black ceramic ring.

Another type of metal that is making a big impression is palladium. So if you had consider platinum in the past you might want to look into a palladium wedding band. The look is the same. It is lighter and the cost is just a fraction of a platinum ring. So there are many things to consider now when you are looking to buy a wedding band. I hope this helps with your decision.


Learning Flute

No comments:
Learning how to play a musical instrument gives back something to soothe one's inner self. Maybe it's not the learning but the playing when you already know how to, but how are you going to reach that status if you do not start to learn at all? There are numerous musical instruments to choose from. While the most common is the guitar, others are equally satisfying as long as you enjoy playing any of them.

The flute is one of the instruments that can be played alone or with a backup orchestra, if you wish. The sound of a flute has a mesmerizing sound. A good composition for the flute will either lull you to sleep or wake you up in amazement. Just try to listen to Flight Of The Bumblebee rendered on flute via Youtube. With such piece so amazingly played normally on piano, having it played on flute makes it more amazing since you not just press the right holes but you also exert extra effort in blowing the right amount of air at the right time with the right mouth formation.

While most of the music pieces are classical in nature, it does not stop you to play pop tunes of your choice. Greensleeves may not be classical but it has attained its classic status some years ago. The lead tune of the flute is really hypnotic. If you want to adapt a tribal flavor, try Waka Waka! First, buy your Gemeinhardt flute so you can wake up to your dream.


Nice To Know You Wednesday

Hi there!

It's been a while since I last joined this blog in a meme. I'm in the mood since the offspring is currently asleep and I have free time.

For this week, Vix of MumWrites posted these questions:
1. Grab the book nearest you + find page 28, what does line 3 say?

I'm currently reading Shelly Laurenston's book one in the Magnus Pack book series. It's called Pack Challenge, an urban-fantasy book about shape shifters. The 3rd line on page 28 is:

"Well?" He wanted their opinion on the female.

2. What is the last film you saw?

DK and I last saw The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in the cinemas. And oh my God, Rooney Mara is great in that movie!

3. If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?

I would have said Neil Gaiman because he's a brilliant author but I would be terribly intimidated to eat and would probably end up embarrassing myself. So I'm not so sure really, perhaps I'd rather not.

4. Is the glass half-empty or half-full?

Always half-full. I'm an optimistic person, a far cry from what I used to be, I know. But being a mother would do that to a person. :)

5. Where were you on Valentine’s day?

At home, reading. :D DK have work that day/night and we don't celebrate Valentine's Day, ever.

That's it for me!

How about you? Answer these questions and visit Vix's blog and submit your link. Don't forget to visit the other entries.


Campus Book Rentals saves you money on textbooks

No comments:
College expenses such as housing, tuition and college textbooks can quickly add up and put a big dent in a student’s wallet.

Thankfully, Campus Book Rentals has come up with a great way to get students the textbooks that they need for college, all while saving more than 50% of the cover price. Campus book rentals offers a huge variety of books that are sure to please even the most obscure majors including City Folk: English Country Dance and Politics of Folk in Modern America. Finding the book that you need is super easy and you can search by keyword, author, and subject or ISBN number. Once you order, your book it will be quickly processed and promptly shipped to you at no added cost. In fact, once you are done with the textbook simply ship it back in a prepaid envelope-with free shipping both ways you never get stuck with hefty postal charges. The rental periods available are tailored to the life of a busy college student. You can choose from semester (130 days), quarter (85 days) or summer (55 day) rentals. If you need to keep the textbooks just a little bit longer to study for that all important final exams take advantage of the 15 day grace period allowed when returning your book. Save your college money for what really counts and rent your cheap college textbooks instead.

"Be natural my children. For the writer that is natural has fulfilled all the rules of art."

Easy Payday Cash for Your Gadget Repair

1 comment:
The people who love gadgets love everything about them. They use the devices, find new ways to update the tools and even take the electronics apart to see how they work. No one recommends taking your contraption apart if you are not a certified repair technician. But if you cannot take your gizmo apart, how will you get it repaired if it breaks?

Faxing Made Modern

No comments:
How many times have you heard that the fax machine go off in the office only to retrieve the print-out and discover the document is a spam? That is because a standard fax machine cannot differentiate between important and unimportant faxes.

Not only do these unwanted faxes waste resources like expensive ink and paper, but traditional faxing is simply not environmentally friendly. Email faxing with Metrofax is a quick way to cut waste and print only those faxes that require you to have a hard copy on file.

The Role of Email Faxing in the Environment
Indeed, the effect of global warming has had on the environment has caused most businesses to check all practices that have an environmental impact. In addition to recycling paper and making receptacles available for the proper disposal of metal, cardboard, and plastic, companies are replacing typical light bulbs with halogen lights.

Along these lines, email faxing allows a company to transfer a typical paper fax into a digital copy and then attaching that fax to an email. This method saves paper and ink, and much improves the ability to organize faxes for quick access when you need them.

How much paper gets used by fax machines each year you ask? Environmental source GreenFax claims that fax machines use more than 200 billion pages of paper each year in the U.S. alone! Can you imagine the number of trees that could be saved if just 10 percent of users made the switch to email faxing?


I'm a great pretender...not!

No comments:
As much as I love welcoming the New Year with a positive outlook, some people just go out of their way to annoy the life out of me.

The first week of 2012 has been good to me. I won in a giveaway (a PayPal cash prize of $50, woohoo!) by Dhadha of I Heart Contest. I was so excited when she announced it on Facebook and immediately sent her my PayPal email address. It was a fast transaction and I immediately received my cash prize. But earlier today, she was shocked when she received an email from some person pretending to be me, thanking her and telling to send my prize to his email address. Of course, the blog owner knew it was not me because she already sent me the prize.

Who is this person pretending to be me? 

I Heart Contest investigated the issue and learned that this person's email address is connected to a profile account. Stupid scammer, this Jay Martillo person.

So my message to this stupid person? Stop pretending to be someone else. Work hard. Join contests on your own. Or try your luck and play online bingo to win cash prize instead of scamming the rest of the world. 

Good luck to you and karma.
