From Jackman to Portland

We moved less than two years ago, but it now seems like a lifetime ago. We had to move quickly, as my husband's job transfer was given with little wiggle room. It seemed that packing up became my full time job, but with few lunch breaks and no nights and weekends off. Thankfully, my in-laws helped us to get everything packed up in the moving van and brought to our new home.

When we got there, it felt like we had so much to deal with. A new work schedule for my husband was only one of our many hassles. We had to find a home security service for more on where we found ours click here, and insurance was a bit of a hassle to transfer. I had to set up the new home in a way I liked, which took a lot of work with little kids underfoot.

Once we got into the groove of things, though, we were able to enjoy our new city. We had lived in a small rural town with not much to do except camp. Now, we were able to explore restaurants with foreign cuisine. There were parks that became favorites of my children. Also, we were so close to the beach, it became a favorite thing during the summer months. Moving can be a lot of work, but it invites a whole new adventure once you are there.

There is nothing like a live television awards show to bring out the egomania of some celebrities. It's one of the reasons that my husband and I love to tune in to the MTV MUSIC AWARDS on the channels we got through directv deals in New York.

You just never know what you're going to experience. Sure, we love the music. We love to see what the latest rocker fashion is. We love watching the celebrities who pretend not to care but so obviously do. Deep down, I think we're still missing the days when 80's rock was in, but we've grown to love Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas. We've even embraced our inner rap star.

This year, we sat on edge as we watched Kanye West completely upstage Taylor Swift. We were horrified at his sudden decision. The spontaneous move to take the microphone from her left us completely shocked. We then watched as Taylor Swift handled herself with so much grace and composure.

It's a moment that will go down in time as one of the most unusual of MTV MUSIC AWARDS history. We were there. We had front row seats all the way down here in Houston, Texas.

We will definitely tune in again next year. These are moments that even the best Hollywood writers can't come up with. We wouldn't miss it for anything.

Spoiled kids makes me sick

I hate spoiled kids like the one I talked with on trade chat last night. He acted like a butthole, he act he is the king of the game and he can do anything he want too. I like old generation they moral and modesty. Most kids in this new generation seems only care about themselves and don’t even care about how their parents earn money. All they think is money and don’t think about how hard to earn money. I hope my kids someday would not follow the new generation. I don’t like spoiled kids and my husband as well. As for my day, I’m doing alright got enough sleep. I went to bed late last night and so I woke up late too. As for my family in the Philippines they are doing fine. My mother and brother got accident from motor bike but I am glad they are doing fine. Anyway, I’m not going to keep this story long. I never eat breakfast yet so time for me to go eat.

Enrique’s still got it

I remember years ago when Enrique Iglesias first got popular in the States and my friends and I were obsessed with him. Now with his new CD and song “I like it” we’re obsessing and watching the video with our satellite internet UT again, just in a way that’s almost acceptable for 20-something women.

I was talking to my friend Anna about this the other day and so naturally, we decided to relive some of his old music watching his older music videos like “Hero” on YouTube with my satellite internet that I found through checking out rural internet providers. As we were watching him and Jennifer Love Hewitt as melodramatic lovers, I realized something. Enrique looks younger now than he did then! I’m sure it probably has something to do with botox and cosmetic surgery but I still think it’s weird. Also, his haircut in the “I like it” video makes him look like a little boy, but in a completely adorable, yet hot way.

It makes me wonder if in another 10 or even 20 years, Enrique will be cranking out even more club hits with him dancing around in the music videos looking like a 20-something. Maybe he’s a vampire. Just kidding

Have You Seen Ice Road Truckers?

I remember the first time I saw Ice Road Truckers. It was a few years ago while I was lying in bed and ready to fall asleep. But once I saw this show come on, I was hooked right away. Ice Road Truckers is recorded documentation of truckers trying to haul products and equipment across the most dangerous roads in Alaska. One road is known as the Dalton. The conditions on this road can become severe. It has happened on many occasions that people have frozen to death in their trucks. This happens because the truck breaks down or they get stuck and nobody is able to come help them because the conditions are so treacherous. It's very sad. Luckily, the people I have been watching have all kept safe. They have had many close calls, though. One road they travel is frozen ice. This ice has come close to cracking on many occasions. The problem is that if the ice cracks, the truck will be pulled straight down and there won't be time for an escape.

I told my dad about this show recently. At first, he thought it was boring. This was no surprise to me. My dad likes to be miserable and judgmental about everything. As the show went on, I noticed he was still awake. This was a clear sign to me that he was enjoying himself. He asked about Ice Road Truckers the following week. Since that point in time, it has become a family tradition. We now watch Ice Road Truckers together every week on directv.

Keeping in touch with my family thanks to the Internet

I’m always in touch with my family in Colombia. Using the hughesnet packages is the most economical way to keep in touch with them. We stay hours and hours online just chatting about what we did during the day, who we met at school or work and where the next party will be. Sometimes my brother and I play online games, just to spend time together. We also use the internet to exchange pictures. My mom even bought a digital picture frame because I had sent so many pictures that it has become expensive to print them all. Last but not least, I also use the internet to send money to my family. I make online money transfers from my bank to their bank. There is a small fee transfer, but it still is less expensive than other traditional methods. The only problem we currently face is that my mom has a dialup connection. Sometimes we are in the middle of an important conversation when she gets disconnected. I have satellite internet, so I don’t have the same problem she does. I already asked her to investigate what other options she has as far as internet providers; until she does, we’ll have to keep chatting with frequent disconnections.

Thrifty business

I’ll save a buck wherever I can. My teenage kids tease about it, especially when I do things like dig through my purse to find a 50 cent coupon on an enormous package of toilet paper. But they really do know that me saving money here and then benefits them in the long run.

I decided recently to shop around for better prices on the utilities and services we already use like TV and Internet. So I started out searching (online, of course) for satellite internet in augusta ga. I compared the results I found with other companies and providers and settled on wildblue atlanta ga, which seemed to have some good user reviews online.

So far I like the service and have congratulated myself on the money we’re saving without sacrificing good service. (I’ll have to admit though that I didn’t really know what satellite internet was before I decided to change our service.)

I’ve already started comparison shopping cell phone providers because our youngest son is about to get his driving permit and will need a phone. But I have a feeling this will be more stressful than finding a new Internet provider.

My birthday is over

The celebration of my 25th birthday last Saturday. My husband and I went to the Chinese restaurant and celebrate my birthday for more. I was sick a little bit then from the long trip but I was doing fine. My husband is so thoughtful of me and I am proud of him. I thank God for him for being such a great husband. I hope God will give us many happy years together, and hopefully we can have kids soon. It’s Monday and been raining  and thundering hard earlier. What I did is, when husband went to work I went back to sleep as there is no internet connection. I wake up at about 7am and now sitting on my husband recliner chair. I love his recliner chair, very comfortable. Sometimes when he sit on his chair I lay down beside him like a baby. I feel comfy when I am in his arm, I feel safe, loved, comfy and happy. As for my day, seems like I have done doing things I should do inside the house so I’d say I have a productive day too. It is time for me now to update my blog and tell you about my day. I hope you guys have a good week! God bless you all and may have a beautiful day like mine.

One Small Step At A Time

As a parent, the world can often be hard to introduce your child to. Adding hughesnet internet to the mix of explaining bullies, first kisses, and other such trials of growing up can be a painful experience especially for the parent.

My child, too precocious for her own good, at 9 wanted desperately to play online. She hounded me constantly, daily for a month. Finally, like all good moms, I gave in. After at least an hour of warnings of not giving out her real name, address or anything else that could possibly be used to kidnap her with, I am not sure who was more scared, me or me. Ok, so I was a little paranoid. And after questions of why in this instance it was ok to lie (kids and their incessant questions) I finally allowed my child to hit the hughesnet in kentucky that was her new link to the global community and the new nightmare to keep me up at nights. After some searching and discussing, we found a website where she could adopt a cuddly creature, feed it, play with it, earn some coins, etc. In her new virtual playground, she quickly settled in and to a mother's utter content, she decided she was happy where she was and we could approach emails another day. Small win for me, giant step for her.

Boomers Hit the Net!

Grandma isn't just using the internet to check her e-mail and stock portfolio anymore, she's busting out of her little technology bubble to become a full blown member of the information age. Whether registering for her Social Security benefits at, or planning her next trip to Italy on senior citizens are taking up more lanes on the information superhighway than ever before and web entrepreneurs are taking notice.

Recognition of the great buying potential of baby boomers and retirees has led to a new market of online shops and information sites specifically tailored for those over fifty-five. Only a few short years ago a person would have to visit multiple hearing aid centers to gather enough information to make a well informed purchase, but now they can research multiple brands and styles with the click of a mouse. Your grandparents might even be looking for the next great love of their life on one of the many new senior focused dating websites. Dating for Seniors,, starts their date range search at a mere forty-five years old!

So remember, the next time you log into Facebook or Twitter, don't be surprised if the newest friend request is from the sweet lady who makes your birthday cakes and sends you scrapbooks of your elementary pictures. Make sure you accept her request though, because it wouldn't be nice to "Ignore" Nana.

Do you Love to Watch Long Tennis?

Some games need skills and power. I consider long tennis among these games. You have to be quick-minded and accurate in your timing, and you have to have powerful back-hand and forward strokes to make a shot. In other words, playing long tennis is not child’s play at all. If you want to play long tennis then you need to be physically strong and healthy.

If you really have a passion for this game, then you cannot miss watching Wimbledon live on your screen. Wimbledon is one of the biggest tournaments in tennis, and almost all popular players participate in it. Who can forget powerful and magnificent shots by Rogers Federer and Rafel Nadal?

To play a long tennis match, you need to have tennis rackets and a tennis ball. Tennis rackets can be quite expensive to buy but you can start by playing tennis on your local college or neighborhood tennis courts.

I am a passionate tennis player, and I love to watch tennis on my satellite TV, because I like to compare myself with tennis icons like Rafel Nadal. I already have learned so much from them.

If you also want to improve your back hand shot, then the best way is to watch and record this game regularly on your Arizona satellite tv dvr. Watching long tennis on satellite TV is not only fun but it is also the best time-passing activity for lots of Americans as well.

Simple Security For Ladies

After watching Sex and the City the movie, living alone is all the rage for women both young and old. In the movie, these women are not only glamorous but they have apartments to die for in upscale neighborhoods in town. This must be what heaven is like for all of us ladies living alone and I cannot wait to sample it. Back on earth, reality is somewhat slightly different.

For a woman living alone, all the glitz and glamor is fine, a touch of class some might say but even in the midst of all the couture gowns and Jimmy Choo’s, imagined or otherwise, a woman needs to feel safe in her home. Having a home securitysystem installed is perfect. This way I can go out at all hours of the night or day and not fear that some mean human being will crawl into my home and steal my most prized possessions. I am still trying to figure if that would be the jacket I splurged on last year or Mr. Cuddles but that’s a debate for another day. This method works for me because it is simple and does not need to be fed, walked, washed or probably neutered.

For the woman living alone that is interested in not only feeling safe but being safe, this is a good solution. It will give you the peace of mind you need to paint the town red day after week after month.

We bought more gardening things today

I am glad it is spring. My husband and I went to town today and do our groceries. We also bought gardening things such as flower pot and soil. We got our Direct TV visa card this week and my husband give it to me to buy some things I want to buy. I also bought jogging pants and it is pretty good. I wore it now and I feel very comfortable.

It is raining hard today and I catch some water so I don't need to go to the pond and haul some water for our chickens. I like rain but I am scared of storm. I hope tomorrow will be a good day so I can stay outside much. As for our chickens I got nine eggs and they were all big. They were all brown and I like the taste of our chickens. They are native chickens and they are different, we have silver laced, red Hampshire and more. Guys it my bed time now so I better say good night. Have a good week everyone!

Perk up your website with Search Engine Optimization

Do you have a website of your own? If so I'm sure you know how important it is to generate enough traffic to your site. But it can also be pretty difficult for people with ordinary knowledge of the workings of the internet. We work and work trying to make our sites better but still sometimes it seems that nobody comes to visit it. So how can a person get more traffic to their site? Its not as hard as you may think. What you need is good search engine optimization. That accomplishes exactly what the name suggests. It makes the search engines notice your site and relate it to the searches that people do.

Having good search engine optimization will help the search engines to understand and file your site to be included in search results. There is now a website called Roianalytics that will help you to make your site as good as possible for the search engines. This is done largely by using the proper keywords. Having the proper keywords is very important because if they don't match what people search for, and also the content of your site, you won't get very much traffic to your site.

When someone does visit your site you want them to find what they are looking for easily. Thats why you want quality and relevant content. When visitors come to visit your site and they can easily navigate to what they are looking for, they will come back to your site again and again. You can see why good search engine optimization means the difference between having a mediocre site and a successful site. If you are like me and are trying to boost traffic to your site I urge you to take a look at Roianalytics and check them out.
