Funny me,

I went to wal-mart today (wal-mart here in our place opens not too long ago), but instead of driving my SUV I used my hubby’s car so that I can filled it up with gas, and hubby wont have to worry about it for work tomorrow since his not feeling well and my son Christian was left at home with him also. I thought it would be better and easier that way so that I’ll be able to ran household tasks faster without even worrying about my baby. Anyway, after paying for the few items needed for that day (coz I was also there the day before for my monthly grocery) I immediately went out and started looking for my SUV, I knew in my mind that I was heading for the same direction where I park the car, too bad I cant find it, I stayed at the parking lot for a few minutes and started thinking where exactly the car was, because I’ve been going back and forth and couldn’t find my maroon SUV. I started laughing when all of a sudden I remember that I wasn’t driving my SUV at all hahhaa… Did you guys ever experience this? Or just spend a good amount of time in the parking lot for you couldn’t remember where exactly you park your car.

Im not a super woman...

Hi guys, it’s been a week now since we got back from our 3days trip to Idaho, I haven’t really settled everything yet , you know put everything where they should belong and stuff like that because I still have a lot of things to do, like laundry, dusting, vacuum at least 2times a week if possible, folding the laundry, and a lot more, and of course not to forget the most important thing to do in my “to do list” is my mommy duty (that always comes first, no matter what) Im not a superwoman or I don’t have a super powers to do everything all at ones, wish I have, hehehe but that doesn’t work that way. Especially now that my baby boy is already crawling, men he’s all over the place now… Its funny because a lot of my friends has been telling me the same thing, that this is the stage where you have to run after them. Before one’s you put him or lay him down on the same place minutes later he will still be there, or not exactly, kinda…he may be rolling all over the place but its not the same as he is crawling…So now you really have to keep an eye on him…and I think this is really the time to make the house child friendly, although we’ve been planning to do it few months ago and bought some of the safety stuff like plug protectors, door knobs covers, cabinet and drawer latches, furniture corner cushions and who knows what else do we need. But we just doesn’t have the time really.

Great Site for the right price

Shopping… shopping… shopping…. I love shopping, who doesn’t right? Especially if I can get a really good buys, and besides why pay the full price if you can get it at a much cheaper price… you would think that only women are fun of shopping, I think not, because you know what, my husband loves to go shopping to, and he’s my buddy when it comes to shopping, I guess im just lucky because my hubby has the time, energy and patience to go shopping with me. We want to take a look around, compare prices and see who has the best deal, hey I’m not embarrassed to say that we love clearance or bargain shopping, however you wanted to call it. Its because you get a lot from your money to almost next to nothing. Some of my friends where even telling me, that every time they go to the store and shop together with their husband (no offense), they cannot take a look around anymore, for most of the time they will just go to the store and buy the item straight from the rack right away without even looking around. I think it’s a guy thing or what. Because unlike my hubby he also enjoys looking around, and for most of the time, every time we go to some of our favorite store like JC Penny, Kohls, Target and to mention a few, the moment we reached inside the store and grab each other a cart, we often says, “ok ill see you around or ill call you when I’m done” .
But anyway, Black Friday (the day after thanks giving) is also a good time to shop, for most of the stores; they really offer a good bargain. I mean it when I said really cheap. But the thing is, I don’t have the time and energy to woke-up at 5am to be in front of the store waiting in line. And not to mention that there’s hundreds of you waiting in line also… good thing if you will be the first in line. But for most cases its not. Well here’s a good news for you there’s a website online call cyber monday . This website let people purchased Black Friday items online without even leaving your house at 4am and wait and in line for hours. So you can still shop the things that you like. So go check them out, click here cyber monday

Q+A is Organic food better for you?

It depends on who you ask. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says theres no proof that organic items are more nutritious than conventionally grown foods. However, some studies claim that organic foods may be richer in certain nutrients. For instance, Italian researchers found that organic plums have more vitamin C and beta-carotene than non-organic varieties. And a study from the University of California at Davis says organic tomatoes may boost your body's number of antioxidants (substances that may prevent cancer). While the matter is still up for debate., loaded with nutrients essentials for a healthy lifestyle. So keep your crisper stocked!

Lemon Grass can cure cancer?

lemongrass is *tanglad* to a filipino chef who told me grass is good;-)

Subject: * Lemon grass * Bot. Cymbopogon citratus Fam: Gramineae

Known in various languages as: sera; zabalin; takrai; Bai mak nao; serai; sereh; salay; Fresh lemon grass (sereh) fields in Israel become mecca for cancer patients By Allison Kaplan Sommer April 02, 2006 A drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass contains enough citral to prompt cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube.

Israeli researchers find a way to make cancer cells self-destructBen Gurion University At first, Benny Zabidov, an Israeli agriculturalist who grows greenhouses full of lush spices on a pastoral farm in Kfar Yedidya in the Sharon region, couldn't understand why so many cancer patients from around the country were showing up on his doorstep asking for fresh lemon grass. It turned out that their doctors had sent them. "They had been told to drink eight glasses of hot water with fresh lemongrass steeped in it on the days that they went for their radiation and chemotherapy treatments," Zabidov told ISRAEL21c. "And this is the place you go to in Israel for fresh lemon grass."

It all began when researchers at Ben Gurion University of the Negev discovered last year that the lemon aroma in herbs like lemon grass kills cancer cells in vitro, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. The research team was led by Dr. Rivka Ofir and Prof. Yakov Weinstein, incumbent of the Albert Katz Chair in Cell-Differentiation and Malignant Diseases, from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at BGU. *Citral* is the key component that gives the lemony aroma and taste in several herbal plants such as lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus), melissa (Melissa officinalis) and verbena (Verbena officinalis.) According to Ofir, the study found that citral causes cancer cells to "commit suicide: using apoptosis, a mechanism called programmed cell death."

*A drink with as little as one gram of lemon grass contains enough citral to prompt the cancer cells to commit suicide in the test tube. *The BGU investigators checked the influence of the citral on cancerous cells by adding them to both cancerous cells and normal cells that were grown in a petri dish. The quantity added in the concentrate was equivalent to the amount contained in a cup of regular tea using one gram of lemon herbs in hot water. *While the citral killed the cancerous cells, the normal cells remained unharmed* .

The findings were published in the scientific journal Planta Medica, which highlights research on alternative and herbal remedies. Shortly afterwards, the discovery was featured in the popular Israeli press. Why does it work? Nobody knows for certain, but the BGU scientists have a theory. "In each cell in our body, there is a genetic program which causes programmed cell death. When something goes wrong, the cells divide with no control and become cancer cells.

In normal cells, when the cell discovers that the control system is not operating correctly - for example, when it recognizes that a cell contains faulty genetic material following cell division - it triggers cell death," explains Weinstein. "This research may explain the medical benefit of these herbs." *The success of their research led them to the conclusion that herbs containing citral may be consumed as a preventative measure against certain cancerous cells. *As they learned of the BGU findings in the press, many physicians in Israel began to believe that while the research certainly needed to be explored further, in the meantime it would be advisable for their patients, who were looking for any possible tool to fight their condition, to try to harness the cancer-destroying properties of citral. That's why Zabidov's farm - the only major grower of fresh lemon grass in Israel - has become a pilgrimage destination for these patients.

Luckily, they found themselves in sympathetic hands. Zabidov greets visitors with a large kettle of aromatic lemon grass tea, a plate of cookies, and a supportive attitude. "My father died of cancer, and my wife's sister died young because of cancer," said Zabidov. "So I understand what they are dealing with. And I may not know anything about medicine, but I'm a good listener. And so they tell me about their expensive painful treatments and what they've been through. I would never tell them to stop being treated, but it's great that they are exploring alternatives and drinking the lemon grass tea as well." Zabidov knew from a young age that agriculture was his calling. At age 14, he enrolled in the Kfar Hayarok Agricultural high school. After his army service, he joined an idealistic group which headed south, in the Arava desert region, to found a new moshav (agricultural settlement) called Tsofar.

"We were very successful; we raised fruits and vegetables, and," he notes with a smile, "We raised some very nice children." On a trip to Europe in the mid-80s, he began to become interested in herbs. Israel , at the time, was nothing like the trend-conscious cuisine-oriented country it is today, and the only spices being grown commercially were basics like parsley, dill, and coriander. Wandering in the Paris market, looking at the variety of herbs and spices, Zabidov realized that there was a great export potential in this niche. He brought samples back home with him, "which was technically illegal," he says with a guilty smile, to see how they would grow in his desert greenhouses. Soon, he was growing basil, oregano, tarragon, chives, sage, marjoram and melissa, and mint just to name a few.

His business began to outgrow his desert facilities, and so he decided to move north, settling in the moshav of Kfar Yedidya, an hour and a half north of Tel Aviv. He is now selling "several hundred kilos" of lemon grass per week, and has signed with a distributor to package and put it in health food stores. Zabidov has taken it upon himself to learn more about the properties of citral, and help his customers learn more, and has invited medical experts to his farm to give lectures about how the citral works and why.

He also felt a responsibility to know what to tell his customers about its use. "When I realized what was happening, I picked up the phone and called Dr. Weinstein at Ben-Gurion University , because these people were asking me exactly the best way to consume the citral. He said to put the loose grass in hot water, and drink about eight glasses each day." Zabidov is pleased by the findings, not simply because it means business for his farm, but because it might influence his ownhealth. Even before the news of its benefits were demonstrated, he and his family had been drinking lemon grass in hot water for years, "just because it tastes good."

Shape up the nursery

For mothers to be out there and looking forward in decorating your nursery, well here's a friendly advice from the expert Marilyn Roberts of the Etagere in Austin Texas.
1. Anything goes for nursery colors these days, but avoid extreme brights, which can be overstimulating.
2. Create your own simple, colorful wall art by spelling out your chil'ds name with wooden letters or blocks.
3. Safety standard have changed, so buy a new crib instead of using a heirloom. Position the crib away from the windows and window treatments for safety's sake.
4. You'll be spending lots of time in the nursery, so splurge on a comfy glider or rocking chair. You'll be happy you did--trust us!

Earn money from Bloggerwave

I started blogging November of last year I think. A friend from the same city back home introduced me to it. Didn’t really know how the whole scenario of this blogging would be so I stopped, and besides my son that time was only about 2 months old. I’m not fun of writing stuff; I wasn’t really that type of person. But when I learned that friend who introduced me into blogging was really doing well and actually making money from it. So I sit back and started thinking. Though I’ve always wanted to work from home, given this chance was really pretty overwhelming. So it was actually a couple of months ago when I started again and this time it’s going to be for real. Especially when I already made a pretty good amount of money from it.

My baby's Fav toy

Well Jerlalou tagged me with this BABY'S Favorite Toy thing... Thanks madam for sharing this to me. Well for my son christian is only 8 months old, I dont think he has his favorite toy yet, though hes amazed and gets so excited when he sees something new and something shiny. But lately i have observed that he liked his toy train, coz when you turn the end wheel of it, it will make a train sound plus it also serves as a flashlight. So he knows which wheel to turn too to create a sound and which part of the train toy to press for the light to comes out. It just amazes me seeing my little boy trying to figure out stuff and how their little minds really is working. I dont have a picture of my son with that train toy that i was just talking about, but i hope this one will work.

Here are the rules:

Post a photo of your baby with her/his first ever favorite/comfort toy. Write some details of your fondest memory of your baby and her toy (like what I did above). This will make a good memento when your baby grows up!

Lastly, before you pass this on to other mommies, don’t forget to add the link to your website/s at the end of the page. I’m sure many moms would love to see your sites, too!

Love links:
Amelie’s mom, RD and CN’s mom, savenathan, Great People Make us feel we can become great, Its a wonderful life your link here...

Now is my turn to pass this to some of my net friends...

Have you tried playing Paintball?

My friend from back home who is a big fan of paintball held a paintball birthday party for her husband. My friend’s husband was just so excited about it, I can still remember his face when my friend told her husband about her surprised. And saw him few days later and the excitement and joy was still there, you just can tell. According to my friend’s husband, that he himself just had a blast and so are his friends. I told my friend here about it and didn’t know that he also like this kind of sport. So this kind of sparked his interest in paintball. And he said that if everything goes as plan this will be his first time in real life to be ever playing paintball. You know he just want to try it just to say that he had experienced it. From what my friends back home had told me, I think it’s a pretty cool thing to do and experience. So after several trips to the local paintball store and a lot of internet searching, my friend came across with this cool website about paintball. They have these great prices and according to him he performed a sort of matching deal to get the lowest price. And he found that this Paintball website has the best prices and gear assortment online coz even in town you wont be able to get this kind of deal. And he wasn’t completely satisfied yet, so he did some more extensive web searching, and realized, that he did not have to search no more; this paintball website has it all and does not burn a whole in his wallet that other sites would. So he bought this Tippmann 98 Custom paintball gun its just an amazing deal that you wouldn’t be able to find it in other site or store. And not only that he also purchased this Tippmann gun and empire digi urban e-Vents thermal Paintball. Included in his search were other suggested products to purchase.. This was a one stop shop. And he’s just so glad he chose this paintball website to purchase his new paintball equipment. I didn’t think that my friend was this determined to really try this sport. The first time he played according to him was that, he did a lot of crawling in the dirt. They played team and individual events for about 4 hours and had a blast. This was the best time he have ever had, he admit, he sort of avoided playing in the past because he suspected he would get hooked, and his wife keeps reminding him that he do not need another expensive hobby. Well this sport and this paintball website online keeps him in the game. Their prices are great and his wallet stays fat. No worry about having “another expensive hobby; at this website they mean affordability and quality. He was thankful he did give it a try though. So to you guys and girls out there start checking out the sport, you will be glad you changed. And remember, this paintball website for all of your paintball needs, you will be glad you did.

It was a fun friday...

Hi guys, yesterday was Friday, its my hubby’s day off from work, well according to him it was his Saturday yesterday and today Saturday was his Sunday... That’s what usually happened when you have a new work schedule, but for us its ok, it will only takes a little bit of adjustments and were good to go... So yesterday we went to California, I wasn’t exactly sure where it was, as far as i know its 1hour and a half away from Susanville, for short its about 3hours away from us. Its a pretty long drive ha? But its worth the drive because we went to what they called the subway cave, its actually pretty neat inside, ive never been to a cave before thats why i was so excited about it, and its not the kind of cave where you see on Television where theirs bat and pretty weird animals, its nothing like that. I was worried with my little one at first because i thought he's actually going to cry because its too dark and a little bit chilly inside, good thing he was amazed with the flashlights so he was kind of entertained with that. Out next stop was lunch of course because its already 2pm when we pretty much left the place. But after that, we head to our next destinations now and its the Burney falls, men, the falls was pretty awesome, we really enjoyed it a lot, my baby Christian was also having fun, i thought he will start to get fuzzy but he did really well and just so excited about it. On the other hand, my mother in-law who drives across country (North Carolina) was also having so much fun, though she’s having a hard time with her knees because she had a bad knees but she surely had a great time also. Then our final stop for the day was the lake, Burney Lake, we didn’t stayed long because its getting late and its time to go home, don’t forget were still 3hours away from home... but like what i said its worth the drive, and we all had a great time. click here to see more photos . Thanks

Beat the heat

Winter may be over already but here's some winter tips for you guys from Kristen Beaumont for your next fall or winter season.

Tame rising heating cost with this 3-point plan.

LOWER THE HEAT- by 10 degrees before going to bed, or invest in a programmable thermostat that will do this for you automatically. The reward: a savings of 10 to 15 percent in your heating bill.

CHECK YOUR FURNACE- Filters at least once a month, and replace them if they're dirty. A dirty filter makes a furnace less efficient, meaning it has to work harder (and use more energy) to produce heat.

USE YOUR FIREPLACE SPARINGLY- Despite their warming appearance, fireplace actually sucks the heat out of a room. Solutions: invest in a glass doors that enclose the fireplace. That way, you can enjoy the flickering flames without feeling the chill of lost heat and money.

Green house

Here are some useful tips for our day to day activities at home where we can save energy consumption. According to Kristen Beaumont the average American households is steadily increasing its energy consumption. But you can help reverse this trend and reduced your utility bill by making your home more energy efficient and here’s how:

WEATHER STRIP- All cracks and opening around the windows and doors leading to the outside. Stopping these little drafts could save you 10percent on your heating and cooling bills.
DO MULTIPLE LOADS OF LAUNDRY- One after another. The dryer stays warm, so you use less energy
TURN OFF LIGHTS AND APPLIANCES- When you leave a room. For instance, if your computer has a sleep function, use it. This saves 70percent more energy than a traditional screensaver.
STOCK YOUR FRIDGE- It takes energy to cool an empty fridge.

Debt in todays economy!

Was it just a year or two ago when the housing market is so hot, People just keep selling their houses, I think some of the reasons are as follows: others just want to upgrade to a newer and bigger house. Some would buy houses for investment because housing prizes are just skyrocketing that time and it is really good for investment or others are just moving out of state. I can still remember that time, just here in our neighborhood alone almost in every corner of our street there’s always a “For Sale sign”. And people doest have any problems selling their houses because the demand for houses that time was just amazing. And we were one of those home owners that time that didn’t have any problem at all in selling our house. It only took 2weeks on the market and our realtor called that somebody is interested at the house already without even seeing it in person. So both parties signed the documents needed and finally sold the house $5000 more above our asking price. We just couldn’t be happier; we were just so relieved that finally our house sold in less than no time at all in spite of the competition. So its time to look for our next house now that we would call home apparently. The processed wasn’t easy as I thought it would be, because we were looking for a bigger house that would fit our growing family needs and that would also fit on our budget. We don’t want to go overboard with the prize for we don’t want to end up losing the house at the end for not being able to pay the monthly mortgage. Being a homeowner aside from the monthly mortgage you would still consider other payments like your gas bill, water, electricity etc. And that time we have to be aggressive in finding a house, because where ever we go there’s always a waiting list or lottery and every time they have a new released prizes is already up 10,000 more originally. Thank goodness that after a few weekends of searching we were able to manage to find the one that we liked the best.

Anyway, few months later, almost a year to be exact as we were driving within our development we managed to stopped by at our old house, just curious about the updates that the new owners have made already especially at the front and the front lawn. To our surprised we saw a “For Sale” sign already by the bank , so in other words its in foreclosure, and not only that, there was also a big sign at the window porch about the asking priced. And its 40% less to what they originally paid for. So we thought that they only bought the property for investment and hoping that the value of the property would still go up and at the end they really couldn’t afford to pay for it monthly fee. Because according to our old neighbors they didn’t really lived there and ever since they took over the house they’ve been doing a lot of changes inside. We felt bad for the people who bought the house though, but that’s just the reality in today’s economy. debt advice

Thanks honey...

Today was mothers day May 11, but since Paul’s work schedule had changed that’s why we decided to proceed our mothers day dinner last night Saturday, given that today wont really be a good idea to go out because restaurant will be mob with people. So there were 4 of us, my hubby Paul, my mother in-law who will be staying with us for a few days, my baby and of course my self. I was just excited last night for it was our first time out together as a family especially during mother’s day (since I’m a first time mom). Paul wanted to give me a new camcorder for mother’s day but I said “no”, since my camcorder which we bought 3years ago still works fine so there’s just no sense spending money to what we already have. I told him if you really wanted to give me something perhaps you can bring us to dinner, so that’s what the dinner is all about last night or a mother’s day card would also be great.

So today mothers day, hubby’s at work so me, Christian and my mother in law just stayed home just kind of chilling out. To my surprised when hubby got home from worked he hand me a mothers day card which is so nice and a digital picture frame which I really didn’t expect. It’s funny because I’m actually thinking of giving him a digital frame also for father’s day where he can put it on his table at work. So now, I may have to think of something else again on what to give him for father’s day… Anyway that’s still going to be on the 3rd Sunday of June so I still have plenty of time to think about it…

Thanks PPP

I was so excited at last, my first post about I signed up for PPP has already made me money, I’m sure a lot of you would understand and would be able to relate on me regarding this, its always nice to earn money specially if its your hard earned money.

That’s why I’m so thankful to the Lord God for all this blessings and of course to Jerlalou for introducing me to the world of blogging…Its just amazing how you will be able to share your thoughts and experienced through blogging and at the same time earn from it and its all within the comfort of your home, and not only that, you will still be able to take care of your baby and wont worry about daycare.
So to PPP, thank you very much for all the opportunities that you have given to me and hopefully this will only be the beginning, and I’ll be looking forward for more opportunities to come. And to all the bloggers out there continue what you love to do the most, keep earning and thanks for all the visit and God bless us all…So for this of you who didn’t signed up yet with PPP its not yet to late…happy blogging to all…

Cheap Phone Cards

Are you like me who is always worried what the telephone bill would be at the end of the month? I hate surprises when it comes to my telephone bill, and I thought I can’t do anything about it anymore… I love calling my friends and relatives back home, you know its always good to catch up to some good old friends. I guess that’s what usually happened when your million miles away from home, well at least my other home, but even though distance is the major concern, I don’t want it to be the reason why I shouldn’t be calling them. It may sound expensive, but at the end of the day you’ll feel good hearing your friends and relatives on the other end of the line. As much as possible calling them everyday sound really great but it’s really not a good idea if you’re like me who doesn’t want to have a very expensive bill every end of the month. Good thing there’s a cheap international phone cards. I found this website on the internet who are selling cheap phone cards at the most affordable and cheapest rate ever, why? Well they have the lowest rate calling card plans, best variety of phone cards, secure online purchase, instant delivery, no waiting, and you can manage your account online and aside from the fact that you will save tones of money from calling home their phone card also has a great voice quality, now how cool is that ha? Plus not only that, they have a cash back reward program where you will be able to get a 3% cash back on your current and future card purchases. This is just one of their many ways to say thank you to their loyal customer. And now, since I’ve learn about this cheap phone cards on the web I don’t have to worry about my telephone bill anymore and I can talk as much as I want and whenever I want it.. So now, good bye expensive telephone bills and hello to phone cards. So how about you, what are you waiting for?

Cheers to all the mommys

Jerlalou tagged me this nice cheers to all mothers, mama's, nanay's thoughts.

I can’t believe that mother’s day is going to be next week already May 11. And Im so excited for this will be the first time we will be celebrating mothers day in the true sense meaning of the word because I am one now…Although I don’t believed in celebrating mothers day on the month of May alone, instead everyday should be a mothers day, or fathers day just like Valentines day or Christmas day, I think everyday should be a Valentines day, every day should be the day that you show somebody how much you love and appreciate them, just like mothers day.

I am a new parent, a mom to my wonderful 7months old baby boy. Even though we had a pretty rough start to begin with, I knew that being a mother is the kind of job that I’ve always wanted right from the start. That’s why when we got pregnant we were so thrilled, I couldn’t believed it that Im going to give life to this tiny little thing growing inside of me. Pregnancy wasn’t really easy for me, I had a lot of bad days to start with, But now, looking back, I wouldn’t trade what had happened to me for anything…Motherhood may be the toughest job there is, but im in for the challenged and im loving every minute of it. So to our little sprout Christian, we know you will not always be a baby but for me, you will always be my peanut. And I will never changed anything from the past, for without it , we may not have you, our pride and joy our little peanut…We want you to always remember that no matter what, mama and daddy will always be here for you, and that were always thankful to the good Lord for giving us our little bundle of joy and to that we love you so much.

I'm sharing this to my friends... feel free to grab...

Busy bee...

Nothing much really going on today, its Sunday but we haven’t been to church today because my hubby had changed schedule at work now, since he started his new position. So he will be working Sunday to Thursday now and off on Friday and Saturday. If you think about it its still 2days off only different days.. I think that’s kinda odd, because I’m not totally used to it, but anyway its still new so I’m sure Ill be able to get used to it though… So I think for Sunday mass/service will just have to moved it to Saturday evening now, it will just be slightly different now but I’m sure everything will worked out great…

I have been planning and budgeting for my son’s first birthday party which will be held in the Philippines sometime this year. I wanted it to be a nice gatherings with close friends and relatives present without spending to much money on it, you know nowadays you have to be practical that’s why I’m also thankful to some of my former officemate's for helping me put everything together that’s why yesterday Saturday, we stopped by at the Party Place in Reno, I just wanted to see the place and also get an idea about party themes and party stuff like wall decorations, banners, loot bags, party popper and stuff like that. I still have a few more months to go, but knowing me, I don’t want to rush everything; I want to take it slowly but surely. Anyway will just keep you updated what’s going to happen next…

Be very very careful...

(got this email from a good friend, feel free to copy it and forward this to your friends and relatives so that they will also be aware and be very extra careful..)

don't look at but one picture, be sure you take a look at the last one so that you will know
what the spider looks like!

It's springtime & cleanup is going on. Be careful where you put your hands. They like dark spaces & woodpiles. Also areas in the attic.................. This guy was bitten by a Brown Recluse spider.
Day 3 The following illustrates the progression of a brown recluse spider bite.
The affected skin actually dies on his body!
Day 5 Some of the pictures towards the end are pretty nasty, but take a
look at the last one - it is a picture of the spider itself.

Day 6 The Brown Recluse Spider is the most dangerous spider

that we have in the USA

Day 9 A person can die from it's bite We all should know what the spider looks like

Day 10 Send this around to people you love, because it is almost summertime.

People will be digging around, doing yard work, spring cleaning, and sometimes in their attics. The Dangerous Brown Recluse Spider Please be careful.

Spider bites are dangerous and can have permanent and highly

negative consequences. They like the darkness and tend to live in

storage sheds or attics or other areas that might not be

frequented by people or light. If you have a need to be in your attic,

go up there and turn on a light and leave it on for about

30 minutes before you go in to do your work!

Another site, another opps

Since my friend Jerlalou introduced and taught me about blogging I kinda get hooked to it now,,, At first I find it difficult to make an entry, its not that hard to put it all together then just click the button publish or stuff like that but, I just don’t know what to publish or post, or probably its because im just to scared to give it a try, always thinking what others might say about my entry, but you know what, this is my site, this is my blog and I can do whatever pleases me. I guessed its because being new into this blogging world that causes this emotion… And now, I think I can say that I finally was able to get the hang of it, though I still have a lot of things to learn, but I find it interesting, helpful, challenging, exciting and most of all rewarding …Yes that’s right rewarding, rewarding was one of the adjective I used to described about blogging specially when you get paid already, how cool is that ha? You’re being rewarded by staying at home…and by signing up to some paid website like That is why im so excited about this website and the nice opportunities that i will be getting from them and vice versa ..hurray….
