A Reliable Web Hosting Service Benefits Your Website

For months now I think of getting my own domain name and hosting for my blog. But I am having second thoughts. I am trying to figure out where to buy a web hosting service that is giving the reliable benefits. Also, I want to learn more about creating sub-domains and their advantages. They said that it is better to buy the domain name for your website from the web hosting company you want the hosting for it. So far I hear good feedback from other website owners about this. It is important to know which company has the best rating when it comes to web hosting. Once the website is set up with a good web hosting service, the benefits of making money from the website will arrive in numbers.

Though I cannot make a decision yet, I will take the opportunity of the web hosting tutorials that are offered online. This is very helpful to the individual like me who is working on making money on the internet, and to the people who bring their business ventures online.

My First Thanksgiving in America one of the wonderful events happened in my life. Joining the new family and celebrating the occasion with my honey gives me great joy.

Thanksgiving to me has a very deep meaning.

Breaking The Habit

I should start breaking the habit of staying up late at night. Besides getting under eye bags, it is not (and never will be) good for my health and fitness. Now that I will start working tomorrow, I need to go to bed early. My honey is always telling me that. I am used to get up at 6:00 o'clock every morning before. Since I got here in the USA I am getting used to waking up at 9:00 A.M. How can I make it to waking up 6:30 every morning now? I know I should set my system back to what is right. It is for my own good.

Online Entertainment Magazine

It has been a habit to listen to music on the radio. To me music gives extra motivation while working in the office or driving especially when going on a long travels somewhere. At home, either my radio or CD player is on most of the time. And if I want to listen to the latest hits or if I want to read about what is going on in the music world, I just surf for multimedia online magazine on the internet.

When I was in my teens I love collecting song hits magazine. It is a magazine of compiled popular songs of different genre-from oldies, pop music and R & B hits. I think these magazines still exist today. But in the growing technology of the internet, we can find our favorite songs and music types online. We can even read updates from our favorite music artist interviews. And trends in the music scene that I have always admired have played a big influence to the teenagers today. has all the features in providing latest news, music videos, photos, and current updates about our favorite artists. A huge collection of celebrity videos and pictures are entertaining to see. If you are a music fanatic like me, you might want to check out now.

On the Lighter Side #3: Duckumentaries, Screwdriver, Flat Minor

What do ducks do on television? Duckumentaries.

A boiled egg in the morning is hard to beat.

Does the screwdriver belong to Philip?

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a flat tire.

What do you get when you drop a piano down a mine shaft? A flat minor.

Playing Possum, No Glaciers

Did you know...

Playing Possum: The phrase comes from the fact that real live opossums have an unusual way of protecting themselves from predators. If attacked, they respond by lying on their sides and pretending to be dead.

No Glaciers: Every continent on Earth has glaciers, except one, Australia. Glaciers are huge masses of ice found at high altitudes. The world's largest glacier covers most of Antarctic.

Learning And Earning With Your Blog

Good news showed up to me in my inbox. I was patiently hoping for this. And finally, triple P brought back my blog in their system again. Well I think surprises are in store for me this time. Last weekend we had a vacation in Oklahoma and I won some bucks at the casino. Now I am back to taking opportunities again. My hard work is rewarded. Thank you very much triple P. Besides learning new things in the internet from time to time, earning with blogging is such a great experience for me.

Monitor Your Husband's Location Now

Are you a jealous person? Do you easily get upset whenever your loved one, partner or husband, goes out with friends without you? I am a jealous woman (not overly so) and my husband knows that. Sometimes I call him 15 minutes past the time he is supposed to call me, and asking him what time is he coming home. He would say, "Sorry honey I forgot to tell you that I worked 15 minutes late tonight. I am on my way home now." At least I know why. I am not trying to be tight with my husband by monitoring his every move. I just want to make sure he is behaving good. ^_^

I know somebody who is a very jealous woman. She is a friend back home and she is always with her boyfriend wherever he goes except to work. They are living together for years now. We had a small talk one day telling me how irritated she was because she did not know where her partner went the other night. And she hated that. I jokingly told her that if she wants to monitor her man, she should use a GPS tracking device. Well that was not a bad suggestion. It would be helpful since she wants to know where he is at every minute. And if she is a little bit suspicious, it would be easy for her to follow him on track.

Anyway, knowing that I am watched or tracked is somewhat uncomfortable to me. I feel like I am not trustworthy or what. But somehow, tracking devices are very useful for businesses like logistics. They make the transporting of goods easy and reduce the problem of losing contact with the transport personnel.

Shivering, Freezing, Chilling

While I am typing this post my fingers are still stinging cold! Why? I just arrived from the grocery store. My friend Norie and I went to Target to buy stuff for dinner tonight. We walked to the store since it is walking distance from the apartment. Wearing a jacket on top of my clothes is not enough.

And we had the "courage" to walk back to the apartment after getting the groceries we need, struggling against the freezing wind while carrying the bags full of stuff. My hands are chilling, face muscles shivering as the cold wind blows on my skin, and feeling the goose bumps all over my body. I am starting to have a runny nose. It is freezing cold outside!!!

Leave Me Alone, Migraine!

I was not feeling well for two days. The throbbing pain in my head is intense. That is why I have not done much at the apartment. After a walking routine around the complex in the morning yesterday, I just stayed in the apartment until late in the afternoon to check the mailbox. But I have not done that either. So I just cooked dinner-pork sinigang, fried tilapia fillet, and rice. Then I relaxed myself on the couch changing television channels while waiting for my husband. My honey arrived home with the mails in hand.

Agh! I wish this migraine will leave me alone!

Do You Know Some Ways To Settle An Obligation?

We cannot avoid spending money whenever we want to. It is a part of our daily lifestyle. Many of us provide the necessities needed by our family. Others will spend to things they do not really need and will just end with a bulk of obligation. In time, this obligation will give them a headache thinking of ways how to pay their debt without losing the money they have. Some say that those who have debts will not be able to sleep soundly. Is it true? Maybe. It is because debts are out of control. Calls and letters from collectors are bothersome.

There is a way to be debt free fast. Debt consolidation is simply the solution to this. It said to be the easy way to manage debt without worrying about bankruptcy. A fixed rate loan can be obtained make the quick debt settlement possible. Debt settlement is the best option to eliminate debt. Agree? What a consumer should do is to consult a trusted loan officer to evaluate the financial status. Credit counseling is needed to see the financial situation of the consumer. In this manner, they can negotiate to settle the debt in an affordable payment plan. For one simple monthly payment, I think debt will be paid without knowing it.

And Red Hot Ruby Shared Me Some Money

Having a vacation always feels good to me. Especially when you go to the destination where you will have lots of fun and enjoyment. This weekend my husband and I went to Oklahoma as a treat for getting the stuff done at the house and also as celebration for our wedding month-sary.
No other place we had in mind when we asked each other where to go. Choctaw Casino Resort. Choctaw Casino Resort is located in Durant, Oklahoma which is about four hours drive from West of Fort Worth. As what I learned, native American Indians started the casinos during the reservation period in Oklahoma. Right now the Choctaw casinos are presently owned and operated by the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma. (Shinade, it is nice to know you lived close by the casino. Maybe we can meet up there some time.)

We got an overnight room accommodation at the casino's hotel. We played the penny, quarter, and one dollar slot machines. I enjoyed playing the Football, Money Bags, and Red Hot Ruby machines because they were paying and gave me free spins. I got all excited whenever I hear the sound of winning machines because there are winners around. We did not do well but we just managed the cash we had throughout Saturday night.

The next day we went to the old casino building after we checked out. We played there for four hours. Whenever I feel the machine is not paying, I looked for another one. I had a thinking that the Red Hot Ruby one dollar machine will pay so I inserted in the machine the last $20.00 ticket I got. My husband was beside me when the machine gave me a free spin and hit the Cross Corners pattern on the screen. And Red Hot Ruby gave me some money of $340.39. Oh that was fun! It was like we played at the casino for free. I can still hear the machine's ringing in my ears. (You are right Mae.)

Right Strategy Leads to Making Money

I encountered websites with essential contents regarding to online business and ways to making money online. I admire the people behind all these for being resourceful. No wonder many are getting rich from doing trades in the internet.

To the individuals who had earned big money in the internet by engaging into online trading, their sharing of experience and tips are actually a big help for beginners to get information from them that are reliable source of legit references. But how do they manage to earn money so quickly? Do they have a special skill? I do not know. All I know is that I hear many people who get rich in stock trading. They invest in a wide-range of stock markets, buying and trading stocks. I never understand how it works but being an online broker always requires good strategy. And doing the right strategy will lead to earning large amount of money.

Have You Traveled to Oklahoma?

Oh yea! I am very excited now. After the busy weeks in October, we finally have everything at the house settled. We will hand-over the keys and give the important contact numbers to the renters this coming Saturday.

My husband and I talked about giving ourselves a treat…a relaxation somewhere romantic and fun. Actually he wants us to celebrate the accomplishment we had last month, the house being leased and the successful moving. Also, it is our seventh wedding month-sary and we want to celebrate it as usual. I was looking forward to the trip until my honey told me that he scheduled us to go to Oklahoma this weekend. I was so surprised.

Yahoo! But...oh no!

Yahoo, because it has been four months since the last time we were there and the place we are going to is loud and has much fun. Oh no, because we are going back to the casino.

How about you? Have you traveled to Oklahoma?

The Memories Of Ironing

Since the day I arrived here in the USA today is the first day I do some ironing. If I will make a listing of household chores, ironing will be at the bottom of my list. But I like doing it though. As long as the power cooperates and the iron gets hot, it is fine with me.

When I was a child, I remember my mother washes the sheets, pillow cases, blankets and precious cotton dresses with starch. She said the starch helps maintain the cloth's original texture and density. And when she was ironing them the fabric is smooth and thick. She used a flat iron made of metal (from my grandmother) with glowing coal inside because we have not had an electric iron in the province before. Using the old flat iron is not convenient enough at that time because controlling the temperature is difficult. And when we got our first electric flat iron, everything was easy. I am not sure if some of my relatives use the metal flat iron nowadays.

Oh well, I should better finish my ironing now. I just paused for a while to eat lunch.

For The Sake Of Staying Healthy and Fit

As I walked by through the cyberspace last night I got stuck with Reana Claire's blog. I was reading her posts, something had struck senses. My goodness! I think her post is teasing my guts and confidence at this time. I did my part on this several periods ago and I know dental health is truly essential any way you look at it. All these years my bravery is always challenged. I have sensitive teeth. That means my teeth react when I drink, eat very cold or hot things. Some say that another factor that leads to the development of tooth sensitivity is age. I learned that tooth sensitivity is highest between the ages of 25 and 30. Whatever the reason, doing proper dental care helps reduce teeth discomfort.

I cannot deny that nervousness strikes sometimes. I am a coward, I know that. But for the sake of staying healthy and fit, I have to deal with the pain. Even if it is killing me!!! Wait. I have a dental appointment tomorrow. I almost forgot. Ugh!

An Alternative To Hassle-Free Lawn Keeping

I mentioned that we have our house leased already. Almost all the stuff in the house is in storage now except the fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave oven. It is like breathe of fresh air that the house has renters now. Eight months ago, we just travel out of town every weekend to check the house and the yard. It was pretty tiring and impractical to travel back and forth during the summer. The gas price boosted up and the lawn mower consumes a gallon of gas. The grass grew so quickly. I came up thinking what the yard would look like if it has the synthetic grass on it. We might not work too hard maintaining the yard. See, synthetic lawn is the closest substitute to natural grass landscaping. For people who have a busy lifestyle and own a house with space in front or in the backyard, the idea of installing artificial lawn may possibly come into mind. Besides, the hassle of seeding, sodding, watering, aerating, or mowing will be out of the way. You will find this artificial grass at EasyTurf. EasyTurf provides professional installation services that are performed by fully trained and licensed installers.

Few weeks ago I watched a television show where they featured the house of a popular female Hollywood celebrity. Her house has an impressive synthetic lawn near the pool where the female celebrity and her family spend their leisure time. How cool is that?

Can Somebody Fix The Water Heater...Please?

We had storm last night and the cable signal was cut. Though the internet connection was fine, we turned the computer off for security purposes. The heavy rains poured all night long, lightning kept on flashing and I heard thunder once in a while. Good thing we did not experience power failure. As far as I can remember, I got some rain water for my plants while my honey took a relaxing hot shower.

This morning he told me that we do not have hot water. Disgusted, he was forced to take a shower in the freezing water. He called at the apartment's office asking what is happening. The staff said that there is something wrong with the whole apartment complex's water heater because of the storm last night, and somebody is working to fix the problem. Until this very moment there is no hot water. Surely we will be freezing cold again in the shower tomorrow.

Do Roses Wither Too?

The season has changed. The leaves of the trees fall as the wind blows. The weather suddenly changes too. It is gloomy and windy outside seems like it is going to rain. I feel lazy on days like this.

After doing the laundry, I pulled a chair at the porch and sat there feeling the chilly breeze. I noticed my plants at the porch seemed to be lonely and they are not looking pretty good particularly my roses. I have three pots of roses-one mini and two average size roses. Their leaves are starting to fade and wither. Worried about their appearance I asked my honey why the plants look like they are dying. He said maybe because fall season is here. He suggests telling Dad about the roses' pitiful situation.
My father-in-law has a garden and has a plenty of flowering plants. He loves roses and maybe he can help me bring back my roses to their fullness again.

Hassle-Free Online Shopping Is Here

After Thanksgiving I will be in my working shoes again. This is going to be the first time in my life to work with Americans. I am pretty excited with the assignment as a seasonal employee. Thinking of the approaching holiday season, shopping is in the mind of everyone. There is one thing I have in my mind right now. I would like to have a laptop. It has been in my wish list for years now. But thinking where to get an affordable laptop is such a headache to me. So browsing the internet for great deals are practically handy. What I like is just a simple, portable laptop that I can conveniently carry anywhere I go. High capacity and durability are the major things that a buyer should consider in buying a laptop. I am particular with that too.

There are plenty of online buying guides. But only the finest website that offers a wide range of stores for the product is what we need right? So if you are searching for gift ideas for the holiday season or any type of occasion, try to visit the website that shows thousands of stores for the product you are looking for. In that way you will get a lot of great deals and huge savings in shopping online. On the lighter side, I hope there is a kind-hearted person out there who will give a laptop as a present to me. ^_^

A Bit Back In History

So here is a compliment from Mize of My Country Home. She is a very kind Portuguese blogger whom I met just recently. I am so amazed doing my blogging thing because meeting new friends from around the world including Portugal is an awesome experience. I remember in my history class in high school that General Ferdinand Magellan, who discovered the Philippines in 1521 (if I am not mistaken), was a Portuguese. Hah! I cannot believe I still recall what I learned from my history class (laughs).

And here is another one from Chronic Chick. I admire her courage. I learned that she is carrying something painful and yet she continuously living life to the fullest. I appreciate Chick for considering my blog the coolest one.

Planning Ahead For The Holidays

I asked my husband what is his plan for the month. What I mean is the activities and important schedules. After a busy schedule in the previous month, I feel like there is another one coming. I am right. A friend would like to meet with us some time this month then I will start working after the Thanksgiving. My driving is not good yet so I am doing training once in a while. Ugh!

We have our house leased and we will be doing a general cleaning this coming weekend. There will be a lot of bending, stretching to do. I am sure my honey will be complaining for stiffness after. But as soon as the whole thing at the house is settled and properly turned-over, we are ready to have some relaxing weekends especially on the holidays. That is the plan. I am looking forward to go on a trip though.

Temporary Job Opportunity

What a wonderful Monday. After a good result from the interview at Dillard's, I headed directly to Cinnabon and bought myself a big cinnamon bread with matching lemonade for a snack. That was a treat for being accepted for a job at Dillard's. Though it is just a temporary job, I am so grateful to be considered in the position. They are giving me a very convenient work schedule on weekdays. Great. That means I do not have to work on the evenings and weekends.

My honey is happy with the news. He was teasing me about working in the store...that I would be so eager to buy the stuff I like there and have a list of the things I would want him to buy for me on the holidays. We had the good laughs with that.

Enabling Comment Luv

Working on the commenting feature here in my blog has been so confusing for me lately. I have been reminded by JJ of Moms Cash Blog that I should do something about it because bloggers who want to leave their comments will just hop away. Also I remembered Tey of Bloggers Recollections told me about this concern. So what I did was looked over the Blogger's Settings again. Then I clicked on the Comment Tab, ticked the "Anyone" next to the "Who Can Comment" option and saved the Settings. I thought I have to put some html codes or something but it is not. Finally I did it and I hope the comment section of my blog is working now. Please message me if it is doing fine or not. I will appreciate it.
