Random Thoughts : July 2011

My birthday month is over and here we are, welcoming August! A lot happened for July right? The NOT GUILTY verdict of the mom of Caylee Anthony; the end of Shuttle Program of NASA in Kennedy Space Center; higher rate of JOBLESS in the United States; Real Estate continued downhill (good for buyers); the massacre/bombings in Oslo Norway killing almost 70 people - national mourning; death of Amy Winehouse; debate on debt ceiling agreement in Politics and so on and so forth. Such an endless battle of what? The world needs PEACE and HARMONY! Let us all UNITE for the common good to make this world a better place to live for the generation to come.

Window Flower Boxes

I love gardening especially flower and vegetable gardens. It is very obvious with my past blog posts. I talk about my beautiful blooming flowers and my produce in the vegetable garden. It was fun and in fact, my husband got into gardening too with his potted tomato plant. But, since we moved to another place, we left behind the garden that we love.Anyway, the house of my father-in-law has flower boxes at the side of the front door. I like it because it has a nice decorative design and it serves as a nice accent at the entrance way. It is very inviting and warm if you have flowers in your garden. If you use a flower box to accent your window then, you might as well get a windowbox. The house decorated with window boxes just like the picture above is very inviting and it adds to the beauty of the house. If you planted fresh flower on the box, it adds a pleasant sight to your property, right? So, if you want to add colors and life to your windows and front porch, put a finishing touches of flower box. Visit the links to find out where you can buy this product.

The Catch Of a Lifetime

What a statement right? The catch of a lifetime could be the word spoken by the living for this Sgt US Army who was laid to rest. Have you been to a military cemetery? Look at the grave marker and read the message engraved on it. You will be amazed as to the depth of the meaning in each one of them. I was not really paying attention until we went to the car and my husband was looking at this gravestone. I took the picture but out of curiosity, I started reading more and it was truly remarkable and unique.
The next time I visit, I will surely snap more pictures to blog about.

Online Portfolio Manager

My father-in-law was a very smart, resourceful and a frugal man at the same time. He also knows the circumstances of both market and product realities as well as the services and was very good in investment. He had an Online Portfolio Manager which he always bragged about. He was an accountant by profession so; he had a wide knowledge about financial management. How I wish he was here now to share me an advice about the Do It Yourself portfolio management. He shared a little bit of information about his activities online. I don't know if what kind of Portfolio rebalancing software he was using but, it was good.

He always bragged when his stocks rise up to the ceiling and earned so much. But, when he loses, he will just keep quiet but never gets upset. He was determined that his investment is in good hands. He believed that his investment will profit big. In fact he says, he started with a small investment and later on, he was able to triple all his shares.

I saw how it fluctuate from losing to earning profits. I was nervous one time because it was losing way downhill! He told me not to worry because it will only go up! Sure enough, it did in few days! When he died last year, he was right as always, his portfolio was doing great and his children were financially happy.

Are you interested in this type of investing? Have you heard about MarketRiders? It is the Internet’s first online portfolio manager. It guides investors like you in building, buying and managing your financial venture that target diversified retirement portfolio focusing global.

Well, she don't feel bad with the situation. She just want OUT from the marriage. Anyway, we chose this place because I crave for their soup and bread. Besides, the ambiance is elegance and very cozy to stay for few hours. I guess they don't mind because I saw people meet up doing the crochet activity.This place is a bakery and cafe' in one.

Hummer H2

The Hummer H2 came on the scene in 2003. The H2 is smaller than the original Hummer. The H2 seems to hold its resale value well for example a 2007 Hummer H2 is still selling for around $25,000. The H2 Hummer will approximately get about 17 miles to a gallon of gas. One disadvantage the Hummer has is for its size it has a relatively small cargo space. It also is a little difficult to parallel park and maneuver into small spaces in a parking garage.For those drivers who need a strong off road capability in a rough open terrain the Hummer H2 performs very well. Many of its owners love the style of the H2 as it does stand out among most SUV's.

The Hummer is powered by a 6.0 v8 engine packing 316 hp. The H2 has no competition when it comes to off-road capabilities and has 10 inches of ground clearance and a protected under body. It can conquer almost any kind of terrain except the smaller trails since Hummer2 is so wide.

The Hummer H2 was manufactured from 2003-2009. The 2003 H2 still has a resale value of over $15,000 so if you're looking for a large used SUV, you might consider the Hummer H2. Check it out from Used Cars in Chicago for they have several listings of car dealerships. Visit the Website today and read the articles from their blog.

Road Trip US Highway 90

When we were living in Mississippi, we love to go shopping at the Edgewater Mall. The place was huge and it's about 30 minutes from where we live.As always, I love taking pictures. This is the US Highway 90, the scenic route if you are heading to Louisiana or back to Florida.When there's hurricane, this road is closed for motorists safety. Most of the buildings and houses in this area was leveled and pulled back to the sea.This is Treasure Bay Hotel and casino located in Mississippi. If you travel in the scenic route US Highway 90, heading to New Orleans, you will see this hotel on the right side of the road.
Here, a lady was waiting for her ride.

Holding the Wine Glass

I was in high school when my teacher demonstrated on how to properly hold the wine glass. I seldom drink wine and as a matter of fact, I don't see any pleasure in drinking wine. When there's a party and in socials, I can take a lil sip and that's it. Anyway, I read it somewhere before that we should always hold the glass by the stem, no matter what the shape or size of the glass and in any type of wine. This demonstration does hold the stem but, showing discomfort in supporting the glass.On this demonstration, it looks funny and the grip is so tight afraid that something might happen in seconds. Just relax and don't be conscious! The best way is to be comfortable in the crowd and just enjoy being yourself. You don't want to hold a wine glass like this because it looks untidy for simple reason! Here's the classy demo that I googled to show you the best way to hold the wine glass. See how relax the grip of the glass is? It shows "I am in control" and "I am having a good time".The proper way to hold a glass of wine is like the demonstration above. But, it doesn't mean that you have to focus your time figuring which is the right way and not. It's good to practice and conform to the norms of the society to be accepted, to belong and not embarrassed. But, what would you do when you see one holding the wine glass ridiculously funny? Don't burst your bubble!

Beautiful and Deadly

I was watching the Deadly Dozen TV show which is Science and Nature Documentaries. I just watch it thru my Netflix account streaming via Wifi -Wii Console. Here's two of the tiny creatures that's describe as beautiful but dangerous. This is blue octopus and it has a blue ring on it showing beautifully when provoked! It's venom is powerful enough to kill humans. There is NO blue-ringed octopus anti venom available. This is a funnel web spider mainly found in Australia. It is very tiny and highly toxic which deliver so painful when they bite. It will strike repeatedly due to their aggression. Don't be deceive by this tiny and beautiful thing, it's venom is painful and if not treated can result to death.

Inside SM Mall

Last year, I went to PI to finish an important task and I rarely go out for a short trip. I went to the mall mainly for groceries and do some banking. I promised myself to take a picture of the inside of the mall but, I can't get a good shot because I was always on the rush. One hand with my phone and the other with something to carry. Nonetheless, I just feel like sharing these pictures though it's blurry and bad caption.This is inside SM mall in Cagayan de Oro City while I was waiting a friend outside Watson's pharmacy.Every main doors in the SM Mall has security guards and for me it was normal. Far different in the US because you seldom see them here even the banks mostly have no security guards. The mentality of my American friends when they knew that we have security guards in most establishments in PI, we have problems with peace and order. I just shrugged it off!Here's the blurry photos taken at LKK Mall. We were rushing to find an ATM inside which we did find anyhow. I love to roam around the mall if given enough of the time.I am so proud of the malls in Cagayan de Oro because they are nice and well maintain. I can bring my American friends and I can be proud of our place.As you can see from the decoration, it was Christmas and the malls were beautiful with all the glitters and huge Christmas trees.We are still contemplating either to visit Philippines or go somewhere else for Christmas Vacation. My husband enjoyed SM Mall and I bet he will love to go visit the Philippines once again.

For less than 10 minutes from my house in PI, I can do shopping, watch movies, do groceries and banking, dine in the food court and the list of activities are endless.

This mall is owned and operated by SM Prime Holdings.Presently, SM Cagayan is the 2nd SM Supermall located in Mindanao and the first SM Supermall in Northern Mindanao area.What I love about SM Mall is that, it has everything that I need! The grocery store is huge, has wide selections of appliances and has great display of electronics. The parking garage is very safe, huge and spacious.I took this picture on weekdays at 9:30 in the morning and forgot that they will only open at 10 AM.

If you have more time, you should visit Saint Augustine, the Oldest City in the Nation.For less than two hours travel from Orlando, you will be in Saint Augustine. The road trip is fun and you will enjoy the view of the endless beach line along the scenic route and you might love to take a swim, go for it. Most of the beaches are accessible to public. The shoreline is absolutely beautiful. Before you arrive the city proper, there's a road going to Fort Matanzas National Monument.

Visitors were heading to the second floor of Fort Matanzas using the wooden stairway. The boat that brought us here is FREE to ride.
Fort Matanzas is located in a small island, a 1740 Spanish fort about 100 acres of salt marsh and barrier islands along the Matanzas River on the northern Atlantic coast of Florida.

Road Trips

Since hubby and I have nothing holding us back from doing something in any day, road trip is our favorite activity. I can't tell you how many times we passed this road but, since I love this area, I can't help myself but take a snap over and over again.Here we are as we head eastbound interstate 10 in Mobile, Alabama approaching the Wallace Tunnel. Mobile is the third most populous city in the Southern US state of Alabama. This location is nearby Mobile River and the central Gulf Coast.The tall building that you see here is the RSA Battle House Tower which is the tallest building in Alabama. Did you know that it is the tallest building in the Gulf Coast outside of Houston? Beside it that looks like a rectangular shape is RSABankTrust Building.The exciting experience for me is driving towards Wallace Tunnel. This tunnel is used in many movies. If you are traveling routing the Gulf Coast scenic area, you can't miss this tunnel.
This tunnel crosses beneath the Mobile River. I always have a shallow happiness so, by driving this tunnel, it gives me an exciting feeling.
In the middle part of the tunnel, GPS and radio channels will quit working. Look at this light, it's pretty amazing right? I have no traumatic experience in a place like this so, I had fun memories. Of course, if you experienced a disaster such as the movie Daylight where in people were trapped and the water starts rising, that would be scary huh! God forbids!
There's nothing to worry when you pass the Wallace Tunnel. It's just a short time and you will see this light! This way, we are heading home to Florida. If you want to travel to Mobile, Alabama do not forget to drop by at Battleship Park.

It's My Birthday

It's my birthday month so, let me share to you my horoscope for fun!

The sun is in your sign until July 23rd, helping you set birthday resolutions or make a fresh start. On July 1st, a Cancer solar eclipse puts the spotlight on you. While the glare may be uncomfortable for your private sign, embrace your star power. People see you as a leader, so own it. Your powers of persuasion are irresistible this month. The July 14th full moon emphasizes true love and relationships. Is it time to make it official? Or has this gone as far as it can? Your rebellious streak flares up between now and December, especially with authority figures. A sarcastic remark toward your boss or parents won't score you any points. Rules were made to be broken, yes, but not just for the sake of breaking them. Choose your battles with care.
