As the Chameleon Changes its Colors

My son enjoys watching this video.
He wants to see wild animals. He asked me if I can show him wild animals like tigers, lions etc. So I immediately search them on the internet. But I found this interesting video. He watched this many times.
I can't imagine how internet works. You can find almost everything just in one click.

FuNny MOndaY---Men Are Just Happier People

I received an email from my hubby unexpectedly. He seldom sends email because he usually texts me when he needs something or vice versa. But this message cannot be send by text.

· If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
· If  Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Dickhead and Sh*t for Brains.

· When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
· When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

· A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
· A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

· A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
· The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

· A woman has the last word in any argument.
· Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

· A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
· A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

· A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
· A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

· A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
· A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

· A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
· A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

· Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
· Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

· Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
· A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

SO, send this to the women who have a sense of humor and who can handle it ....and to the men who will enjoy reading it.

I like this one:
· When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.

MEN....SHOW OFF! What can you say about Men?

Extra Earnings Through Blogging

Blogging is growing. Many stay-at-home moms do blogging to have an extra income. Many companies advertise on blogs.
I have been blogging now for two and a half years. When I started blogging I never thought that I could earn some extra bucks which really help in our daily needs. I linked my blogs to my facebook so that my family and friends can visit them. They can read the updates on our lives here.
The future of blogging and other social media marketing are becoming better and popular. Many companies use social media to expose their new products, brands and maintain contact with their customers. These social media also give a big credit to small business beginners. Small business starters can work at home. No overhead costs like the rent of the building, electric bills, phone bills etc. because you can start a business by using your PC at home.
Facebook, which many customers use to spread the word gives a good name to many small businesses. Many companies include blogs now on their websites which is perfect for sharing news, updates and allowing access to their customers. They can reach large numbers of people through internet with less expenses in advertising.
I will keep on blogging to update my family and friends on our daily events; earning extra bucks encourages me to write frequently.

Pic of the WeeK---Hedgehog

It was amazing to see a hedgedhog so close.
This pic was taken during our neighborhood party. This hedgehog lives nearby our house. Behind our backyard are bushes and some trees. Hedgehogs feed on insects, snails, frogs and toads, snakes, bird eggs, carrion, mushrooms, grass roots, berries, melons, and watermelons.
In 2006, McDonald's changed the design of their McFlurry containers to be more hedgehog-friendly. Previously, hedgehogs would get their heads stuck in the container as they tried to lick the remaining food from inside the cup. Then, being unable to get out, they would starve to death.
It was around 8 in the evening when the children saw this hedgehog. They shouted and yelled "hedgehog". An enthusiastic crowd gathered around the hedgehog. They were very excited to see a hedgehog. As you can see the hedgehog was scared because it tried to spread its spines. To protect from intruders hedgehogs use spines. It was so scared that it did not make any moves. That's why I was able to take some pictures. When we were away it immediately ran to the bushes.
Have you seen a hedgehog so close as this?

FunNY MonDaY--- Men are like...

... Blenders.
You need one, but you're not quite sure why.

... Chocolate Bars.
Sweet, smooth, and they usually head right for your hips.

... Coffee.
The best ones are rich, warm, and can keep you up all night long.

... Commercials.
You can't believe a word they say.

... Computers.
Hard to figure out and never have enough memory.

... Coolers.
Load them with beer and you can take them anywhere.

... Copiers.
You need them for reproduction, but that's about it.

... Government Bonds.
They take way too long to mature.

... Horoscopes.
They always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.

... Lava Lamps.
Fun to look at, but not all that bright.

... Mascara.
They usually run at the first sign of emotion.

... Parking Spots.
The good ones are already taken and the ones that are left are either handicapped or extremely small.

... Popcorn.
They satisfy you, but only for a little while.

... Weather.
Nothing can be done to change either one of them.

Which one do you like?
I like...Men are like Parking spots, Weather, Commercials and Computer.

Cool Wedding Bands

There are so many different types of wedding bands out there. I have been looking at them lately and have narrowed down a couple types I think are pretty cool. A lot of people are turning to tungsten rings for their wedding bands. They look great and are virtually scratch resistant. That makes them really popular. Plus the price is great. They have kind of replaced titanium rings as the go to ring. Titanium are much more light weight than tungsten but they scratch kind of easily. You do have to make sure you get a tungsten ring that does not contain cobalt in them. Cobalt will oxidize to your hand and make the ring very unattractive.
Another fairly new type of rings are palladium rings. Palladium is a metal from the same category as platinum. They are very similar. In fact palladium is more rare than platinum or there is less of it out there because it hasn’t been as valued as platinum in the past. A lot of times the value of a metal is what drives the market. So if it is seemingly valuable than a lot of people will want it and drive the demand up.

Pic of the WeeK---Crabs

Crabs are one of my fave seafood. You just cook the crabs in 7-up or water. Leave it for few minutes in the pan until the water boils. It is done when the crab shells turn into reddish orange. They are delicious.
I took this picture last year when I was in the Philippines. I was salivating while writing this post. Hope to have them in my dish soon.

Be Satisfied

“Never let the things we can't have, or don't have, or shouldn't have, 
spoil our enjoyment of the things we do have and can have. 
As we value our happiness let us not forget it, 
for one of the greatest lessons in life 
is learning to be happy without the things 
we cannot or should not have.”

Live life according your to needs. Those other things are just spices in life. Do not make it a problem if sometimes things went wrong. Someday you can fix it correctly. Do not be so meticulous. Give yourself and other people a space to grow. Be contented of what you have then you will live life happily.

My Bonus Card

Last week I was in a drugstore to buy lotion and vitamins. When I was at the counter to pay, the cashier asked me if I wanted a bonus card. Every time you buy something you will receive points and will be saved in the card. There are many items with corresponding points. Using these points to buy the items is the best way to save up some bucks. I can also use this card to log in to the website of the drugstore. Since I signed up last week I can receive emails everyday about the items which are on sales. Usually I sit behind the computer so it is easier for me to visit their website.
Many shops use points or give out coupons every week to attract customers. So, check the online coupons and see if the supermarket near you, maybe they are also giving away coupons. Online coupons are very convenient. You just print them and bring to the store.
I will log in later to my account to check the items on sale today. This morning I will go out to do some shopping and maybe drop by the store to see their items on sale.

My Favourite Coffee

It is nice to start your day with a cup of coffee from dolce gusto coffeemaker. We bought this last year. The design of this dolce gusto coffeemaker caught our eyes. This metal red coffee maker matches our kitchen cupboards.
I sometimes drink a cup of tea or a cup of coffee macchiato. I have just drunk one cup of coffee macchiato. A sliced of cassave cake matched that delicious coffee. The smack of the coffee is still in my mouth. I sometimes have cappuccino but it cannot surpass the taste of coffee macchiatto...for me.
I am not addicted to any drinks. When we dine out, my hubby always offers a glass of red wine. A glass of sprite or soda water will be enough for me.
What is your favorite coffee?
Do you drink wine, vodka or rum?

Business Paperworks

One of my friends here wants to open a travel agency. This agency will offer services from here to my homeland. She asked her other friend if they could be partners. Since they are very busy with her job, they plan to ask someone to make a business set up. They both do not know about business. I know that they have to register the business first to the Chamber of Commerce. That is the only thing I know. Setting up a business is a big challenge. A challenge that you must be very confident that the business will be good on the market. You must think of business techniques or marketing so that you can compete the companies in your area.
You must be business minded. You can take all the stress when time demands like finishing some requests from the customers. Many companies this time offer 24/7 services. As starter, you must be there for your clients as often as possible.
Let the expert start up your business to avoid those stressful paperworks. Put the stress to the experts.

Blog is Back ;)...PR is Gone :(

More than two weeks of not finding my blog online had given me a dreadful feeling because this blog has its own domain and has PR 3. It is already earning reasonably good. Seeing my blog again last evening lifts my happy emotions up high. What a big relief to see it again! I made this blog two years ago. I spent many hours and tiresome moments making this blog. It is back :)
On the contrary, I was upset because the PR was gone. Because I had a big problem with my blog according to the domain provider that he had to install everything again. So, I think I have to register this blog to the search engines like GOOGLE, YAHOO, AOL SEARCH, BING, etc. again which I am very disappointed and  must have to do it. I have to start from the very beginning as if I have just started blogging. Notwithstanding, I missed a few opps from the advertisers. I really hope I would not encounter that terrible experience in this blog again and my other blogs.
What a miserable blogging experience!

Food for Thought

Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.

These children have difficulties in learning things. They have difficulties in spelling like they write freind instead of friend. They are confused over left and right. Children may write letter d instead of b. These are some of dyslexia symptoms
It is very important to know if your kids have dyslexia so that they can be treated on time.
