KC, the cat

Last winter, my mother-in-law, my father-in-law and one of my brother-in-laws went to Florida to escape from snow and maybe to do some other works over there. Fortunately, my brother-in-law left us his cat to baby sit with. My husband and I love animals and so for us, it is a blessing to have a cat in our house for those moments. The cat was named KC or maybe short for Kitty Cat but she was so disciplined that we do not have to worry about anything. Well, except for cleaning his litter box and feeding him but other than that, we enjoyed having him in our house.

Not all cat is like KC. Some has a lot of problems that just caused headache in the house specially in the areas where they love to stay. Of course that is our floors or our carpet. If you can’t clean it right away, it will cause problem to everybody specially if you have kids in the house. That is a big headache. Or maybe if we clean it ourselves, we really don’t clean it…I mean clean as in odorless free and bacteria free but just clean visible in our naked eye. You see, there is a danger of not cleaning it completely. First there will be a bacteria growth which will harm kids… then will turn to odor that will make discoloration of our carpet….a big mess.

Well, let us come to a solution that has a power and cleaning system to rinse off all your worries when it comes to taking good care of your cute and caring pets. Go to urine odor removal austin . Hey, one last more...if you have problems with dog odors since i love dogs too, they have dog odor removal austin too. See, they are the best steamteam of Texas.

Now I'm Connected

Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes

I'm so glad I came across those Clear tv bundle specialslast month since I'm now able to watch reruns of my favorite show, Friends, whenever I want. Before I got the bundle, I didn't have TBS which is the network Friends is shown on most often. I was spending a lot of money at Blockbuster renting the different seasons of friends, especially since the seasons were broken up into three or four DVDs each. At five dollars a pop, that it's really pricey! Now I know exactly when the show comes on every day, and I'm really pumped that TBS ! devotes two hours of daily programming to my favorite show. I've also gotten hooked on some of the other rerun programs they show, like Sex and the City and even 2 1/2 Men. What in the world did I do before I had all this quality programming available to me all the time? As right, I actually went outside and got exercise and hung out with my friends! Oh well, TV is my new best friend now.

Count your blessings everytime

This morning, I am so enthusiastic to do things. As I room around and do chores in our house, I usually turned on the christian radio station because I learned so many things by just listening in their messages. They said a lot of things that will help you face challenges in everyday life but there is one thing that sticks in my head that serves as my inspiration throughout my day today. That is the phrase “if you want to be happy all the time, just count your blessings all the time”. I meditate about it and its true. It is working. You will find that you are blessed, happy, contented and at peace with everything. Being able to breath well, walk, talk and move freely is more than enough to be happy and thank for in life… so count your blessings all the time.

Living your Dreams

If you notice, we want more…and want a lot for ourselves. We want more money, want to have a bigger and luxurious house, want to have elegant cars, want to have expensive things in most of everything. On my side, there is no problem with that at all specially if we have the capability to have fancy things in life. We deserve to live what we deserve to live. We work for it and it is a kind of gift living happy and fulfilled.

Now that we have everything in life… the wealth, health and happiness, we have to protect it. We have to protect our wealth just like the way we protect our health. It is important because we worked hard so much to earn what we have. It is not just a one night success but a long haul. With that, we have to safeguard what we established.

Establishing a foundation takes a lot of time, money and effort but for the stealers who want to steal what we put together can walk off with it overnight. Yes, it is disappointing but that’s the reality. You have to find ways protecting your established home and fortune.

Home security systems are the words you need. They have friendly website online that you can select a dealer to your location, can request quote online and more amazing services. Have a try. It will cost you nothing.

Show your love to your parents as always as you can

If you have the chance to show your love and care for your parents personally do it as always as you can. Why? Because you are lucky to have them with you right now… that you can touch them, talk to them, see them, hear them…feel them on your side. When your parents are very far like in my situation right now, I don’t have those kind of opportunities and it made me sad. All I have are all wishes that they are with me right now to spend time with…strolling together in Mahoney Park or in Omaha Doorly Zoo…anywhere or just with me by my side. I am missing terribly those happy moments we’re together in the mountain…and in the beach…in the church…in our home. Right now, yes, we have technologies that can help alleviate our longingness to see them but having them with you in your side is more than anything. I love them greatly. I thanked them for raising me the way they did. I greatly commend them on that because I grew up knowing God and it all that matters to experience real peace, joy, love and contentment in this world. In situations like I have right now, far from my parents, all I can do is sending personalized mothers day gifts for my mother. This way, we let them know that we love and care for them.

I need to exercise!

When I arrived here in US, I am happy to be able to continue the things I like doing back in our place. That was being able to exercise three times or more in a week. I did that religiously since our house is near to a beautiful park that you can walk, jog or bike and just enjoy the surroundings…trees, green grass, birds singing, squirrel playing, rabbit eating and running around and lots of other enjoying moments with nature. I did my exercise routine religiously for about two years but because of work, I started to get lazy. Well, I need to start that habit again to be healthy and maybe it is a good idea too to encourage my husband to have a long walk once in awhile. We love strolling in the country side but he drove while we stroll…well, we both love the joy of the ride if that is what you call it. Anyway before, I thought, exercise/workout is good enough then I was informed about this pre workout supplements. I do not have an idea if it is working but you can try.

Winter Campout

My husband and I, love camping. Actually, we just had our winter camping last February 25-27. It was not my first time because the other year 2010, we went out camping too while Lincoln, Nebraska was experiencing snow storm. The ground had 6 to 7 inches of snow but we shoveled the ground first before placing our tents. This year, we experienced the same… there was snow on the ground and still snowing too but it seems I get used to it. Like the other kids, I enjoyed too… the white …snowy…cold…well, not cold because I am bundled up with my winter gear. Well, we had a fire pit…our most favorite place during campout…could be spring campout, fall or summer campout…we love it much.

Social Security Benefits

I absolutely admire the social security benefits the American people are enjoying. One of which is the disability benefits that an employee can claim once he or she is injured and later become disable to work. Just thinking about it gives you the sense of security that there will be something you can hang on when tragedy strikes you. There will be a process of course before you can successfully claim this kind of benefits but it is worthfollowing because you will be provided with benefits you need. Sometimes, maybe it is difficult because there were others that were denied and so maybe hiring a lawyer who has the expertise and know how in these areas will be a good decision.

Gold Chandelier Earrings

One of the sections that I like to visit in stores here in Lincoln is the Jewelry area. I became so interested and fascinated with earrings, bracelets, rings and necklaces. I do not know why… since I never wear any. They look so pretty that it gives people more confidence of themselves when wearing it maybe. It gives glow, art and character to the person wearing it. It look so nice and cool specially if they wear it simply but elegantly.

One day, I was introduced about the gold chandelier earrings. It is a special kind that you will be amazed of the designs. Just check it and you will love it.

My prayer for the victims of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and stunami in Japan

My heart goes out to the people of Japan who were affected by the 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed by tsunami last Friday afternoon, March 11, 2010. Seeing the devastating effect through videos and pictures just breaks my heart. My prayer for the Japanese people who were directly affected by this tragic event, is that they will find refuge and comfort in these very difficult times of their lives. I know it is difficult to understand and painful to bear but I believe that there will be a smooth road ahead after the curve sections that they are going through right now. I pray that you will find that straight and smooth road soon and quick.

To all the people who has the capacity to help and are helping right now starting from the government and private entities all over the world, to our medical teams/rescue teams, militaries, red cross staffs, religious organizations, volunteers and the like, I pray for your safety that you can help and save more lives. I salute you for your effort in giving your best to help others that are in need.

If you want to help through financial, red cross and other organizations have a system to accept such. Let us continue to include the victims in our prayers.

My application

Lately, I am cramming to put together all my legal documents to be submitted in USCIS. Well, I shouldn’t because I still have 1 more month before the deadline…but I am just critical too like my husband. Anyway, We are applying for taking out the conditions as Resident here in US and they requested legal documents to be passed. I have all those but of course it is good to be on time. Things that they need are legal documents showing that I am truthfully married to my husband. Of course we are and we are proud to say that we are happily married. Life Insurance was one of the documents I included with my husband as beneficiary. This was the very first thing that my husband provided me when I arrived here to be free from any worries and uncertainties. My knowledge in life insurance is not that wide…I mean as to other companies specially with the rates they offer and maybe it is a good idea of checking the whole life insurance rates.

Carpet Cleaner

The previous weeks, I met my friend in one of the big stores here in Lincoln. She was looking for a carpet shampooer. Carpet Shampooer do play an important role s in cleaning the house specifically the carpet. She said, it was her wish of owning one because she can clean the carpet anytime when she has the time. I said, that is a very good idea instead of barrowing most of the times.

We are in the appliances area and next to carpet shampooer is of course the carpet vacuum. We all know that the two are bestfriends. They have all different kinds and so it is really up to the customer what to buy. Maybe ask a store assistance as to how those things works best. Online, there is this Hepa vacuum. Search it and find how it goes.

Things to learn

Being new here in US, I have a lot of things to learn because I grew up in a place where many of the things are opposite of what they have here. I can understand English…I am not sure if I can speak fluently like a natural American citizen… I am trying to and that is the one I am learning everyday through everyday acquaintances with American people. I have a development though I can say and I hope will continue.

Aside from the English language, I have to learn about the US money specially the little ones. I had fun experience learning the us coins, well…not sure if that is how you call it here but in our place, we call ours as coins. But anyway, that is what I meant…the 25 cents, 10 cents, 5 cents and 1 cent. I took time before it sank in to my brain familiarizing their sizes and the faces. Well, I finally did it.

Our very special dates!

The first place that I was able to visit and had a vacation here in US, was Branson, MO. That was year 2008, month of July and dates 7 till throughout the whole week. Got a hint? Well…the 6th was our wedding day and next of course was the honeymoon! That is the reason why Branson is so memorable to us because right after our wedding here in Lincoln, Nebraska, we went over there and spent our one of our happiest days of our lives. It was worth travelling in that place. There’s many attractions for tourists. One of the places we went was the Silver Dollar City and you will love being in there….we had fun, fun and fun experience. It is not that expensive to go there, you can get a Branson vacation packages that is pocket friendly. Get a lot of pictures!

My picky husband!

Talking about “very picky” when it comes to shoes, that’s my husband. The last time we bought shoes for him, we visited 5 shoes stores here in Lincoln just to find the best shoes he likes. At first, It seems “not cool” roaming around with him to find that very special shoes of him but I stopped, trying to understand him and it make sense. Having that very comfortable feeling and support that you will get from the shoes will give you more joyful delight while working long hours in a day. Speaking of comfort and support, this is the definition of mbt shoes.

Medical Field

To take Nursing Assistant course was the last decision my friend and I came about. It will be this May and hopefully, we can have the schedule soon. We are still waiting for the final schedule but we contacted the hospital already that we are going to register in. This is just a trial stage for us if we want to pursue Nursing course in the future. If we enjoy the course and the job training, the possibility of taking the Nursing course is greater. Let us see. For now, we are focused on that plan to finish it and have a job as a Nursing Assistant.

Why we like that course? To be a registered Nurse is the one I am interested in, I do not know to my friend but to me, that is what I want. I have an Accounting Degree but it seems, it is not working for me. Then one day, I was moved and touched by these two lovely ladies working as Nurses at Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center here in Lincoln, in Pediatric/Delivery Department. Their services were beyond the compensation they are receiving. They care so much that I felt I am loved and well taken cared of. By staying there for almost three days, I saw myself being one of them in the future doing the same for people who need care. But, to be sure that I will like the job, taking the Nursing Assistant Course is the best way to do.

Momentarily, my friend and I are on our way. We do not know what the future holds but having plans are good right now. We know we need many things in our classes and one of those is the nursing uniforms . I am not sure if that is how you call it, a friend of mine said yes…and so I tried searching in the internet.

Luckily, I ended up with BlueSkyscrubs website. They have almost everything you need for medical uniforms. Of course you want it affordable and so they have cheap medical scrubs . Try to look at it and you will be fascinated by their scrubs. They have this all cotton scrubs, dental scrubs, burnt orange scrubs, even c cotton lab coat too…Good quality and very affordable.

The Best Travel Show On Television

"Guest post of the week by Val Flores"

When it comes to great television shows on Direct TV packages that have to do with travel, there is just one that get's me to the couch every single time it is on: "No Reservations". It's really a simple show: Anthony Bourdain travles to a different location every week, try's local delicacy s (from street food to four star fare), indulges in a bit of culture, and learns about the people. In truth, though, it's not just the location that makes in much watch television, nor is it Bourdain himself, it's a combination of the two, along with the different types of food he tries.

In a way, Bourdain could read a telephone book and be engrossing. He's one of the smartest, most reliable person's on television. He's not stuck up, he's not a know it all, and while you know he is smarter then you, you just relate to him. Plus, he can describe food like nobody else on television. What other show would make you feel like you don't just want to go to a location halfway around the world, but also partake in their local delicacy's. Heck, whether it's bugs in Asia, heart's and lungs in France, or something strange in your own backyard, Bourdain makes you feel like you don't just want to try it, but you have to.

Amazing Facts Publications

Written in Stone from Amazing Facts Publication (News and Features)

God is the ruler of the universe ... and as a ruler, He naturally has some rules for His creation.

You're probably already familiar with them. They come in a set of ten and cover how we relate to God and to our neighbor. They began in eternity past and will continue into eternity future, and they are a matter of life and death. With that at stake, take a few minutes to seriously consider your responsibility in this Q&A ...

Q. Where did the Ten Commandments come from?

"And he gave unto Moses ... two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God" (Exodus 31:18).
"And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables" (Exodus 32:16).
Answer: The God of heaven wrote the Ten Commandments on tables of stone with His own finger, and gave them to Moses to deliver to Israel.

Q. Why did God give us the Ten Commandments?

"He that keepeth the law, happy is he" (Proverbs 29:18).
"Keep my commandments: For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee" (Proverbs 3:1, 2).
Answer: There are several reasons God introduced His law to mankind. One is for our happiness. That's right! Keeping His law promotes peace and joy in our lives.

Q. Do I have to keep God's commandments today?

"For sin [breaking God's law, 1 John 3:4] shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin [break the law], because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid" (Romans 6:14, 15).
"Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law" (Romans 3:31).
Answer: According to the Bible, Christians today are obligated to keep the Ten Commandments—not as a means of saving them, for they are saved by grace through the sacrifice of Jesus—but to promote the peace and joy God desires for all His children.

Grace is like the governor's pardon to a prisoner. It forgives him, but it does not give him freedom to break one single law on the statute books. The forgiven person, living under grace, is under double obligation to keep the law. A person who refuses to keep God's law, saying that he is living under grace, is mistaken. He is living under disgrace.

Q. Is it even possible to keep God's commandments?

"I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts" (Hebrews 8:10).
"I can do all things through Christ" (Philippians 4:13).
"God sending his own Son ... That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us" (Romans 8:3, 4).
Answer: We can do it. The Bible says we can through Christ.
