I am running kinda late on my updates here. Sunday, we work a lil bit then mom invited us for dinner and the we all went to Hard Rock Cafe here in Tampa. We went home as a loser though. I didn't have time yesterday to make some updates because I have to take over Cliff's job since he called sick. I have to finish some of the updates on machines he's working on. He came in today yet he has to go back home because he is not feeling good again. It's just a madhouse here, me trying to cover up with his work plus the new employee is having trouble with her task. It's just getting in my nerves but I'd rather be busy than doing nothing anyway, so what I'm complaining for?????? I am just getting frustrated sometimes when things just won't work out the way I wanted it to.

I have been checking my phone calls because we have shared minutes and I want to save all our minutes for trip. Obviously we will be calling long distance when we will be in our trip and I hate to be out of minutes even though we can still use our phone but they charge us per minute and it's more than the regular. I saw this number calling my phone and I hate answering it because it's not in my phonebook and I don't want to waste my minutes. I found this website Reverse Phone Lookups is one of our many sites that aims to connect users with a variety of valuable services. To stay current, they are constantly researching several evolving fields and the many tools available within those fields. Their goal is to connect you to the sources that will get our users the services they seek in the most effective and economic fashion. National No Call Registry where it provides a free reverse phone number lookup for any number whether its listed or not. I now have the resource to track any phone call I receive, get information about the owner of that number, and determine whether it was a call I needed to take, or if it was just another telemarketer trying to waste my time. Just type the number that called in the search box on the website, and find out exactly who is calling you. Answering your phone has never been so stress free.

Yup, we surely had a blast last night. We went to our favorite club where they are having a school girl party and it was fun. Of course I had to wear my school girl outfit to fit in the party and boy Ray and I had a blast. The private club don't allow cameras even phones with camera is being banned so I didn't have pictures guys. We really deserved all the fun we had last night from working hard all this time. Now that the party is over we need to go back to do some work again! I wasn't drunk yet I need hot coffee this morning because I still feel the liquor in my system.
kinda like this last night but this one was taken at the fantasy festival in Key west

Living in FLorida brings a lot of fun yet it also bring some worries especially hurricane season is coming! We will need to stock some stuff like fuel, batteries, flashlights and more to be prepare of what's coming on the next months. In my three years here in Tampa, I haven't experienced hurricane yet and I thanks God for it. It's not that we are hoping for it but we have to realistic that hurricane will always be there and that's nature's decision. All we can do is be prepare for something to come so it won't be a surprise. I found a good website called Surefire flashlights , the tactical technology company, manufactures illumination tools that are powerful, compact, rugged and reliable. Surefire flashlights produce optimal beams — no dark holes, rings, hot spots, or shadows. When you own a Surefire Flashlight , you own the best!!
Friday was our crazy day because we went to an abandoned(the landlord auctioned it off because the tenant left all the stuff) office equipment and furnitures. We were nervous going because thinking it's gonna go really high. When the auction starts, there quite a few (around 7 people showed up) yet it was only 1 person bidding against us but it still went pretty high considering there's only 2 people bidding. When the bidding stop and knowing that we won the stuff, it was a relief. Other bidders starts negotiating with us some bought some stuff too. Another ting winning an auction is getting all the stuff but it's not a problem since we all have the means to get it. Right after we paid the auction, we already start getting the stuff since the landlord only give us until Tuesday. I came back to the store and Ray went back with our employee to the the place so the can start getting the stuff. Friday it was me and Cliff left at the store and the bad news Cliff leaves at 4pm every Friday that I will be the only one at the store. It will make me occupied and can't do my sideline thing which blogging(makes sense co-bloggers?). I have to prioritize the store than the blogging, I'm only doing blog for fun even before I started blogging. I don't really think it's an incoming income, any dollars I get from it it's all bonus. Saturday was a lil crazy too, Ray want to go to the place to supervise and it means I will be the in-charge for the store because Cliff is off for the weekend the on-call for Saturday is not available. The whole day went pretty smooth and they (Ray and the employee) came back earlier than I thought. We even got home early. It was a very productive week.
Working is fun as long as you are loving your job. Loving your job means being comfortable with your co-workers and even with your job uniforms and shoes or work boots. I found a website called work boots USA and they have variety of work boots like converse, corcoran, matterhorn and a bunch more. What's good about them is they have live help where you can talk to a representative on their website plus they have free ground shipping too. Free shipping can be a very big help especially when you are far and has to pay more. At Work Boots USA they proudly brand theirselves on extremely fast shipping, low prices, and outstanding service. They are factory authorized dealers for all of the brands you see on their web site. They take great joy in helping people get the work boots they want and need. Please take a look around their site and don't hesitate to contact them if you have any questions or needs.

Yesterday was really busy. We have this deal of monitors going on and we are just extremely busy. Also we just have another employee which will do all the collectors' stamp covers that we are putting on eBay which means I will have to train her on what to do and stuff. I always told Ray that I hate training somebody because I am a perfectionist and I want everything has to be right and if always assume that if I explain something she will just get it right away which I know it is not always the case especially when it's got to do with our procedure and how it's going to be done. Thank God yesterday all went smoothly than what we expected. She was freaking out when I showed her all the HTML stuff and the FTP then the turbo lister but when i explained to her and everything she got it eventually with some questions on the way which I considered normal and everything was done right.
It's undeniably that the world we live in today has a lot of stuff going on, from the on going war against other country to the economy dropping down like a rock. With all these happening at the same time, we are always worry what's going to happen the next day, week or month. I know most of us trying to catch up with all of these yet everything is just overwhelming that mostof the time it gives us stresses, headaches and other medical problems. I found a site called A New Earth meets The Secret where they uses the Sedona Method which will show you how to have thriving, aware and joyous relationships in both your business and personal life. You will leave feeling renewed, empowered, fully alive and in love with life, yourself and those you care about how to fall in love with your self and your partner again, how to deal with difficult people with grace and ease, how to understand your partner better and have them understand you, how to take responsibility for your own experience in relationships and how to bring the feeling of “I am enough” into your life and your relationships. One of the cornerstones of The Sedona Method is that it can free you to attract all that you desire. We have always done this in a very unique way by helping people to manifest their goals through dissolving rather than strengthening the ego. Rather than trying to want our goals more and force ourselves to think and feel a certain way, with The Sedona Method we create what we want by letting go of our imaginary sense of limitation, our incessant need for more, our desire for the goal, and our attachments and aversions to the goal – in short, ego itself. By creating through letting go of every goal, we also support ourselves in awakening.

Time is so important to all of us. We always want to know what it is no matter what our reasons are, it's either going somewhere for doctor's appointment for plane flight, we always need to know what time it is. Of course having a watch is so convenient. Owning a watch is godd and owning a free luxury watch is really great. Concord watches have a variety of luxury watch at very low prices. Thewatchery.com offers genuine brand name watches at substantial discounts to the manufacturer's suggested retail price. Because they are not authorized dealer, they are able to avoid manufacturer's pricing controls and forward greater discounts to their customers. Thewatchery.com realize their prices are incredible; this is due to the fact that they buy our watches from their suppliers in large quantities, have a very low markup and, as an online seller, operate at a very low overhead cost. What's the best thing in shipping is they have it cheap or free for a ground method.
Here's what I found that is very nice watch and really attract me because of its style and color from their variety of luxury watches

Living everyday is always a challenge. There's always stuff that will come up and we don't have a choice but face it. One of our goals in life is to be happy and be useful. In order to face those challenges in life we have to be fit and ready no matter what. Our health plays a big role in our everyday living. What we eat matters and we have to be aware what we put in our body. Millions of people LOVE to eat Gulf oysters. Whether you eat them in moderation or by the dozen, these delightful mollusks provide a low calorie protein that are an excellent source of zinc, vitamin B-12, and omega-3 fatty acids. While not a serious threat to healthy individuals, consumption of raw or undercooked oysters by at-risk individuals may cause serious illness or even death from Vibrio vulnificus bacteria. If you have liver disease, diabetes or a weak immune system, you should avoid raw oysters. So next time you are thinking of eating Gulf oysters you to be aware of its risks that will harm your health.

I was having problem with my phone yesterday and I was actually checking my my minutes usage online but it keep saying that it's been discontinued and I have to call them. I didn't call them instead I look around and found this website called Jitterbug provide Baby Boomers and

I remember my grandmother when she called my aunt and she was talking up like a storm and when she finally stopped, she heard the line on the phone asking who she was and if the girl knew her. Then I just heard my grandmother said, Oh, it's not Vicky? By the time she she notice it she already said whatever she needs to say. I was like grandma? why you didn't make sure it was my aunt before you talk too much. Then she said It doesn't matter she doesn't know me anyway!

Being close to nature always give you this fresh feeling. Nothing can beat the feeling breathing fresh air away from the polluted downtown of big cities. Shangri La Gardens and Nature Center has represented a place of beauty, peace and enlightenment. In Orange, Texas, a modern Shangri La has been recreated with the best of both nature and gardens. The formal Botanical Gardens contain more than 300 plant species in five formal "rooms” as well as four sculpture “rooms.” Adjacent to the Botanical Gardens is a bird blind which allows visitors to observe nesting birds in Shangri La’s heronry. The good thing is they are nestled within 252 acres in the heart of Orange, Texas, Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center is a program of the Nelda C. and H.J. Lutcher Stark Foundation, a private foundation whose mission is to improve and enrich the quality of life in Southeast Texas and encourage and assist education. The unique ecosystem of Shangri La presents an ideal opportunity to further that mission as well as carry on the vision of H.J Lutcher Stark, the man who originally developed it more than 60 years ago.
It is so nice just be away from the traffic and just spend the some hours looking at the garden.
or looking at the animals that live in the garden.

Soaring prices are causing hunger around the world.
THE SKYROCKETING commodity prices that have made the Farm Belt one of the most prosperous regions of the United States have had a rather different impact on large areas of the developing world. Foodstuffs have gone up 41 percent in price since October 2007, pushing many people over the line from poverty into privation or even hunger. The Food and Agriculture Organization, a branch of the United Nations, has identified 36 "crisis" countries, 21 of which are in Africa. The World Food Program, another U.N. agency, estimates that it will need $500 million on top of what donor nations have already pledged to fill what the WFP calls a global "food gap."
The United States must do its part. Even before the spike in commodity prices, the fiscal 2008 food aid budget of $1.2 billion was proving inadequate. President Bush asked for a $350 million supplemental appropriation in October, to cover help for Darfur and other critically needy areas. But Congress has not yet approved that request. Meanwhile, the U.S. Agency for International Development, which administers U.S. food aid, has accumulated a $120 million food budget deficit, which could grow to $200 million by the end of the fiscal year. Congress should swiftly approve the president's supplemental request, adding as much money as possible to offset recent price increases -- as Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr. (Pa.) and six other Democratic senators, including Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Joseph R. Biden Jr. (Del.), have proposed. The alternative is selective cutbacks in aid to hungry regions, a kind of nutritional triage unworthy of the richest agricultural nation in human history.
GAS prices is the root of the this problem... Can we have alternative?????
Communication is our best tool for good, peaceful relationship no matter if it's a friend, love ones and families. The world understand each other because of communication.

Tonight I am packing, what's good about me being a night person is, I can be up until whatever for packing but getting up tomorrow will be a lil tougher. We will be going early tomorrow to Miami. We miss going to Miami and it's been months since we drove down south. We go there often for business too. We get a lot of our computer stuff from Miami. We always combine business and pleasure. Don't expect me to be away from blogging thingy because I will always find a way to be connected no matter where we go :)
Living in America is like driving on the interstate where you are in the fast lane. Having a hectic schedule can always cause stress that will lead to another health problems. It's not a good sign to look at and we all know that we can always conquer all this by doing other things like exercise or Jung Su Won which is the way to unite your Body, Mind and Spirit as one. Through martial arts training, mental focus, and meditation, Jung SuWon prepares you to face and eliminate stress, unhappiness and difficulty in your life. It is also a life training. It is for adults, for children, for men and women - it is for anyone who is ready to take the first step toward turning their life around. You might look into this type of workout for your body, mind and spirit as one.
I was running out of time since this morning because we have plans to go to the auctions in Orlando at 5pm. I have Ebay to do and I have bills to send and all this time I've been wanting to visit the blogs of my friends in my blog roll yet I am lack of time. I wasn't done with either the bills and Ebay yet we have to leave but when I called the place they said 4 was canceled and only 2 left so we decided not to go because it's just a waste of time. I went back to whatever I left and when I got hungry I told Ray to eat out because I wanna just get out from the store. We talked about going to the Gyro place that we just saw 2 nights ago and it's just down the road from us but when we get there it was closed! That part of Dale Mabry got a lot of food places so we just went to Sonic and try there since kinda different from the rest of fast food. I've known somebody who worked on one of their station and she told me that they wear roller skates at work. I expected to see employees wearing them yet I was disappointed. I didn't see anybody wearing it. I am just curious to see it since I've wished I know how to skates and instead I busted my tush when we went skating a year ago. Oh, well maybe at the other sonic place wear their roller skates :(
Youtube.com is getting really popular that you'll see just anything in the site. Famous or not famous upload video and photos to share. I was just looking at videos and saw this one QRay about bracelet that balances the negative and positive forces in your body. A bunch of of professional athletes wear it because it helps them and it is so light that you hardly even notice you're wearing it. Plus the terminal ends (flat balls) are attached using a two-fold connection process to ensure maximum security and durability.

My friends been telling me that we will have a get together on the 7th of April and I was so excited because of good food and I will see my friends again. We're all busy with our lives that's why we only see each other once in a while. Yesterday was crazy, I forgot all about the get together and my friend called asking when I'm coming I was like... where? Then I quickly realize about the get together. They all want to go to the store anyway so they came went with them after. Some already left because they have to work and some hasn't came in yet.
In my experience at the store, big companies always have sensitive data in your computer Hard drives. A lot of them think that destroying the hard drive will destroy the data too but they are wrong. Most of the time data in the hard disk can be retrieved as long as the right tool and knowledge is used. hard disc data destruction offer this service. They are able to "clean" data from hard drives using specialised software. They have an industrial shredder based in Shropshire which is capable of shredding hard drives, back up tapes and cds etc. They don't just offer hard disc data destruction, they also do Collection of redundant IT equipment, Collection of empty toners, Supply of remanufactured toners, Supply of refurbished computers, Supply of “Green” computers, Supply of ex demonstration equipment, Digitalisation of data leading to a paperless office
It's not just securing your data but they are also helping the environment.

The past weekend was the yearly Philippine Festival here in the Tampa Bay area. Ray and I been going there for three years even though the two years was scorching hot and this year was different. It was pouring rain and we went Sunday but never stayed long because of the rain and it was muddy. We only ate there then sit for a bit and then head back to the store. It wasn't a good time, I can't even walk around and see what they got because of the rain. All we did was just had one round and eat then the rain started pouring.
It's undeniably that Internet is it's peak. People are so dependent with internet but who can blame us? We can find anything online. You name it and internet got it all. Of course Google one of the biggest sites if not the biggest one and every business want to be in Google's database. Who don't want to be? To be on top of you game is the ultimate goal! We always want to be on top of the searches and of course we always click the first one on top right? Google’s dominance is impressive – but not total: “In the UK, Google is a dominant player for traditional search. It has around 80% market share. I always use internet when I am looking for something even directions or it could be anything really. I stumbled upon with this article while browsing online White box world which quite interesting. I found this one part "In Stephen Taylor’s view, “I believe very strongly that Google isn't going to be beaten or heavily challenged by the other big players. Any shift from Google isn't going to take place because a slightly better algorithm comes along.
“The shift, if there is one, will come through some of the other trends that we see. The growth of social utilities, such as Facebook, and other trends that start to make it less likely that I make a search engine decision. It’s a big possibility but we're a long way from seeing the demise of Google just yet."

I always ask my husbands every time I see commercials on TV about products. If you can really get it and if you can really trust them since they ask you you credit card. If you base the situation on what's going out there where scams are involve you will wonder if is there still somebody or company you can trust to. I was just browsing and saw this website called As Seen on TV Products where they rank the top ten best As Seen on TV Products so you can buy with confidence.

It's bugging the crap out of me when I saw this anonymous comment from my blog entry Tag Along. It's not a usual comment and it's so long that it occupy the whole page.
I decided to erase the long comment in here because it's taking too much room and when I read John's comment on it, I took time to read it and he was right, it just doesn't make any sense.
So whoever you are Get a Life and maybe make your own blog site and post whatever you want to post in your own site not on someone else's blog site!
We are all aware of recycling. It could be computers, plastics, bottles or it could be anything.
Raw Polymers Ltd is a leading company specialized in the supply and sourcing of raw plastic material and in business for distributing and sourcing HDPE Scrap. High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) is a form of recyclable plastic commonly used in consumer product manufacturing. The definition of High Density is anything between 0.941 - 0.965 gram/cc Polyethylene. HDPE Scrap is used for snack food packaging and cereal box liners. In blow molded HDPE form it is used for non carbonated drink bottles. In injection molded form, it is mostly used for margarine tubs, deli food and whipped toppings. Virgind HDPE Pellets are freshly produced HDPE pellets that have never before been used in any manufacturing applications whatsoever. In our earth situation today we should be aware of gathering those plastics, bottles or anything that can be recycled to save our polluted place.
An online friend of mine requested if I can write something about Filipino lives here in America. He said that it would be nice to know what is really the real experiences of the women married to an American me.
I will be talking about my experiences and some that I have witnessed. I always have simple plans in life. All I want before was to finish my degree and have a decent job in Davao. I don't remember while I was growing up that I dreamt of going to USA. What started this whole new life and environment is when I had my job at the accounting office of the university where I finish my degree in computer science. I was hired as an encoder of the payroll and had access to the internet.
Processing my papers to come here wasn't easy but it went smoothly. I have to go through it all and what scared me was the mandatory seminar at the CFO where they showed mostly unfortunate Filipino who was being beaten by their foreign husbands. I was aware that knowing someone in a long distance situation is very different than knowing someone when you're living with him. Everything will show when you are with him 24/7. I have heard a story about my friend's friend in Alaska that her boyfriend was so inconsiderate that he let her stay outside in the middle of the night in a freezing temperature and they never get married and she eventually went back home. It's really sad that these things happens yet we can't generalize everything. It didn't change my mind because I had this feeling within me that he is a good guy. When I arrive here in the US I was greeted with warm welcome by my husband and his family which I considered my second family. I was very thankful to God that he gave me a good man with a good family. Ever since I step foot here my husband never landed his hands on me instead he showed me almost the whole country. He brought and showed me all 49 states that never in my whole life imagine I will go to. I have seen amazing and interesting places because of him. He taught me so many things even though sometimes we have some fights yet we always talk about what the problem is.
I know I have filipino who visited my website, I am requesting all my friends to add your unique story as a comment and I will repost this whole thing again with your story and experiences as a blog and i will include your name after your story. Hope you will support me so I can give a good article to my friend.
Bedroom furnitures can e a headache especially when you have kids and they know what they want and very picky when they want the coolest furnitures out there considering the room and budget you have. When your family is growing and yet you have to conserve spaces bunk beds are great options. They have a lot of storage spaces and bunk beds just don't occupy much room so you can put other stuff you want in the room. Just like the photo below it surely conserve room.
Or if your baby girl wants to have a dollhouse that is very modern and cute just like the photo below.If you go to their user-friendlywebsite they will provide information on their products, how they make them just like material they use. All of the pine used in their solid-wood furniture, they use plantation grown in Brazil to protect the rainforests from further decimation. Brazil is a world leader in quality pine furniture and our plantation-grown Elliotis Pine has a lovely finish and lasting quality.

I got a funny story (it's pretty funny for me by the way), while we are having breakfast this morning, my dog Bullwinkle just jump on a newspaper clip and it made some noise. I saw him do it yet I just ignored it because the newspaper was pretty old and I figured it's trash anyway but Ray ask me what was that so I just said it's an old paper. He stand up quick and said Bullwinkle get off there! I was like why? Then he explained the whole newspaper thing. It turned out to be that it was an article about him with his computer. What's hilarious was when I read the date, and it was written September 7, 1982. I calculated quickly and said I was only 11 days old!!! and you're already in the news??? I was like man you're old (I literally said those words!). I was asking him some shitty questions like if he paid the newspaper just to write an article which is unlikely because you can't pay them unless it's an advertisement or something, or if he's bestfriend wrote the article. I just can't believe he was in the paper in a whole page! I would love to post a copy but I didn't bring my camera and it's so delicate to bring it this morning but I still might post it, it's pretty cool my hubby got an article and it was a whole page article in a famous newspaper(tampa tribune) here in Tampa. I will make another blog entry with article itself.
When we are started doing this auctions locally we have found few painting and they cost a lot. When it comes to art people are so delicate and want every detail of it. We always want the best and I found this website canvas photos which is the hottest new idea for turning your favorite digital or print photo into a work of art in the style of your choice. Isn't it great plus you can choose from six popular artistic styles, professional editing of your photo in your own style, or simply have your photo maximized for quality and printed ‘as is’ on canvas. There are many sizes to choose from…and they’ll even supply the frame.
You can just visit their user-friendly website canvas photos and start uploading your pictures. You can browse the website, so can be familiar with the services they offer. Most site don't show their prices and you have to call and it's so unfair but PaintYourLife show the complete list of their prices which I considered very convenient because we always want to know how much is this and how much is that. Start browsing now and make your photo into a real art!
