Car Title Loans

The unemployment rate still keeps going up. The U.S. Bureau of Labor releases that unemployment rate went up from 8.5% to 8.9% in April. Since recession began sometime in December 2007, U.S statistics show that there were approximately 5.7 million jobs that were lost. That's 5.7 million people out of job in the U.S. In April alone a mass layoff of 2,712 involved about 271,226 individuals. So many people are out of jobs and the crush in economy are forcing them to make loans left and right to make ends meet.

My Dream Cars

My son's former high school classmates dropped by out house one late night. One of them just had a new car and he picked up his high school buddies for a spin. The car, a BMW, was an 18th birthday gift from his dad. My son said the Beemer was all high-tech and push button which led me to search on BMW videos to know more about such cars. I happened on a site that "tells it all". Pick a BMW model and a video clip of the said card model would pop up completer with detailed specifications. Click on a link and stories about the cars or news relating to the same make are available for interested parties to read. You can read about a particular model's performance, design, utility, safety and value. There's even a feedback on the possible emotional appeal that one can experience with a specific model. I took a particular liking to a 2009 BMW 335i Sedan. It is currently the best seller of the BMW 3-series. With a front engine and rear while drive,3 liter, twin-turbocharged Inline-6 engine, and a power of 300 hp @ 5800 rpm with a 6-speed automatic gear, this "baby" would certainly light up my life!

For more practical but awesome cars too, a link to Honda videos are also available. Now, if you want to throw all caution to the wind and get your dream car, check out the Jaguar videos. I just did and now I want a 2009 Jaguar XF on top of my BMW 355i.

Don't Give Away Your Power


“And don’t sin by letting anger control you. Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry”
(Ephesians 4:26, NLT).
TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Do you realize how much energy it takes to be bitter or hold a grudge? We only have a certain amount of energy for each day. If we use it for the wrong purposes, focused on the negative, dwelling on who hurt us, we’re not going to have the energy we need for the right purposes. We’re not going to make the best decisions. We’re not going to be as creative. We’re not only doing ourselves a disservice, but we’re doing our family and our friends a disservice.

Remember, you can’t control what people do or say. You can only control yourself. If you’re allowing others to upset you, then you are giving away your power. The Scripture says, “Don’t let the sun go down on your anger.” The reason many people have no joy or enthusiasm is because they go to bed every night with anger and unforgiveness. When you go to bed like that, with a cluttered mind, focused on the negative, you wake up with the same negative emotions. Don’t let anger and unforgiveness block God’s blessing in your life. Choose to let those things go so you can live in the peace, joy, and power the Lord has for you.

Heavenly Father, today I am releasing every negative thing that has happened to me. I’m forgiving every person who has hurt me. I’m forgiving myself for mistakes I’ve made and releasing every disappointment so that I can live in Your peace and victory. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Carpet Cleaning

The four main bedrooms in my house used to be fully carpeted. I employed the services of a reputable carpeting company to install the wall to wall carpet in the bedrooms. I had a fun time choosing the colors and thickness and type of carpeting to be installed. When the job was done I was so happy an pleased with the result until it was time for carpet cleaning. Cleaning the carpet does not entails vacuuming the carpet. Shampooing and drying the carpet was a must and I was just not cut out for the tedious job.

If only Austin Carpet Cleaning company had a branch in my town, then I would not have resorted to pulling out all my carpeting. The All Pure Cleaning System has been in business for the last 15 years. It has consistently provided its clients quality service at the lowest possible price. The company not only cleans any type and size of carpets but it also specializes in: Window Cleaning, Fire and Water Emergency Restoration, Commercial and Event Cleaning, Strip and Wax Commercial Floors, Tile and Marble Cleaning and Sealant, Hardwood Floor Cleaning, Concrete Sealer and Cleaning. If you are in the greater vicinity of Austin and are in need of any of these services, check the site out.

New Furniture and Fixtures

My bathroom needs remodeling. The tiles are old and chipped. The water closet vintage and the bathroom vanities needs a total "facelift". There are a lot of new bathroom fixtures and amenities that are available today. My head just spins every time I window shop or browse online for new things and gadgets for the house. While I am at it, I also need new bedroom furniture or more specifically a new bed. My bed is of metal and I feel like I want to exchange it a modern bed - sleek and zen-like. I like the clean lines of the bed and its matching night tables and dresser. Beautiful! I wish I could avail of the ongoing slash/clearance sale ongoing in this furniture shop online. Interested? Click on the link for more information on the current clearance sale. You might want to look at more items on sale. I myself am interested in the outdoor couches on sale. Go to the site and look for the yellow-green outdoor couch. I just love it! The couch would be perfect for my trellised terrace. I could put in some blue and orange throw pillows and whalla! I would have one heck of an inviting and tranquil outdoor space. Check out the site. You won't regret it.

Jewish Chat

I have just finished reading The Diary of Anne Frank for the nth time. I love the book so much as it dwells on something positive in a time where it is highly excusable to feel negative. I am moved over and over again by the strong Faith and undeniable hope that the Jewish family has shown. As a matter of fact, I am in awe of the whole Jewish nation. The nation has gone through a lot of unbelievably horrifying ordeal that it's a miracle the race persist. Well, I would not really ponder on that for long as all Bible readers know that the Jews are God's chosen people.

I would really like to meet Jews online. It is well and good that there are jewish chatrooms that one can join to meet and interact with Jews online. The membership fee is totally free. Registration is as easy as 1-2-3. Just hop over to the site and chose a username, put in your password and email address and you are done. This is one recommended place for Jews to talk and interact with fellow Jews. I think it would be interesting to ask Jews about Judaism and other related topics.

Gratitude Award

Attitude of Gratitude Award

Thanks Kimberky for this award. You're one of those who really know the meaning of gratitude. I know that life is sometimes harsh but if we look closely, we have a lot to be thankful for on a daily basis. Right?!

Wheelchair Chats

One of my daughters, the dentist, together with a handful of pediatric dentists, held a one-day free clinic at an Orthopedic Hospital. There were a lot of kids and teens confined at the hospital that needed free dental assessment and tooth extraction. I was surprised to find out that there are actually about 200 kids of varying ages that are living in the hospital compound. These kids are not actually patients but are handicapped kids taken in by the hospital and placed in the housing facilities. The kids come from all over the Philippines and they are there for the duration of their lower and upper school education. There are a handful of adults too who chose to stay after their high school education. Computer education is part of the high school curriculum and the upper school kids and the adult supervisors are allowed to go online for a few hours a week. I guess joining a handicapped chat room would be beneficial to these kids for they could all share their "wheelchair" experiences. The site is 100% free to join and registration is easy. There are different chat rooms available. I think it would be nice for these handicapped persons to meet other handicaps of different nationalities and ages.

When You Feel Weak

There are times that no matter how strong your faith is, weakness still is possible. When you feel weak, remember that there is a God who can be your refuge and strength.

He gives strength to the
weary and increase the power
of the weak. Even youths grow
tired and weary, and young men
stumble and fall; but those who
hope in the Lord will renew their
strength. They will soar on wings
like eagles; they will run and
not grow weary, they will
walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31

Nurse's Tips to Good Living

Scrubs can pertain to the scrub suits that doctors or nurses wear. It could pertain to a defunct TV series that showcased the lives of wacky interns and residents. However, the Scrubs that I mean hear is Scrubs Mag, a one of a kind online magazine that details a nurse's guide to clean living. Various tips and guides about health, mind, beauty, style, work, love and even money are given by professional nurses. The site is truly one of a kind for the site is not limited to clinical tips alone but includes stories, insights, reviews and current news about a variety of subjects and topics that could help its readers lead clean and healthy lives.

I read the weight loss articles and picked up a few simple tips. I need to lose a few pounds too for health reasons. What really intrigued me was an article titled The Beauty Stimulus Package. In a nutshell the article is all about looking great without the costly cosmetics and even costlier procedures. One tip I would surely do is to mix baking soda, or sugar, with olive oil or a product like Cetaphil for a great exfoliator without over drying the skin. Check out the sight. You'll learn a lot from their pool of nurse article writers.

When You Need Comfort

I would like to thank all those who expressed their care and concern for me. God Bless you all. Everyone needs a shoulder to lean or cry on at times. However, people are not perfect and sometimes they fail us too. What better time to remember that when you need comfort as 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 says...

What a wonderful God we have
He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the source of every mercy, and the one
who so wonderfully comforts and
strengthens us in our hardships and
trials. And why does He do this?
So that when others are troubled, needing
our sympathy and encouragement,
we can pass on to them this same help
and comfort God has given us.

Of House Tips and Clogged Pipes

I am an architect by profession and for the longest time I have been toying with the idea of putting up a home and gadgets blog. The site would be more like a how to's and tips about anything related to housing and gadgetry. A lot of do-it-yourself-ers would definitely find it useful to get the right tips on, for example, the right type of paint for a certain material, what light wattage to use for a particular area or what type of pipe to used for a specific plumbing fixture.

Speaking of plumbing, I once had a client whose hot water line to the master bedroom was not working. The rest of the house was getting its hot water except for the master bedroom. My theory was that some debris accumulated in the half-inch diameter pipe but there was no way to for me to see the insides of the pipe for it was embeded in the floor. That was 5 years ago. Today it's possible to look into the insides of a pipe as offered by a Salt Lake City Plumbing company called Drain Tech. In-line camera inspection and pipe location is one awesome service. Old houses with plumbing problems will now be easier to diagnose. The company also specializes aside from Plumbing, Drain Cleaning, High Pressure Hydro Jetting, In Line Color Camera Pipe Inspections DVD and Pipe Locating.

Legal Matter Dilemma

My in-law's family owned corporations need a good lawyer. The string of lawyers that have handled their legal matters were all inept in a sense. They billed the corporations left and right and my in-laws had no way of telling if they were billed correctly and honestly. It was frustrating as there was no way of checking for the billed hours.

High technology is the answer for this dilemma as E-billing is now available all for the benefit of both clients and law firms. In a nutshell E-billing is all about outsource law firms submitting their invoices to their clients. The system is also integrated with the accounting department and Matter Management that would ensure a methodical flow of invoice and budget. The system allows for a complete record of billings, commentaries, answers to inquiries, and more. The system is easy to learn and adapt too. No need for uber-tech know-how here. The system, developed by TeamConnect Collaborati Spend Management, also simplifies invoice review and imposes billing guidelines in your legal operations. Some of the most notable features of the system are:

* Ensure compliance with established billing guidelines and automatically reject non-compliant invoices.
* Automatically mark non-compliant invoices with warnings at both the invoice level and line item level.
* Auto-adjust non-compliant items such as charge rates and unauthorized expenses.
*Automatically route invoices to the appropriate approvers and configure allocated approval times at the process and individual stop levels.

TeamConnect could also organize and streamline your Litigation Hold
agenda so that all communications are placed in a single-trackable location. Check out the site for more information.

When You Feel Worried

This article is a re-post from my other blog.

My cervical spondylosis has been acting up since last week. The pain was minimal at first but now the pain is quietly but deliberately growing in strength in spite of the medication. Why? I am really not stress-free. Although my doctor gives me anti-anxiety pills, the stress and problems are still there - not resolved. I just want to be stress-free but for that to happen I have to resolve my problems first which I can't do for it involves a lot of factors that are beyond my control. There are two plausible solutions though - increase my medication or win the lotto.

For the meantime, I ask my readers to pray for me. Prayers are "magical" and do wonders. I just have to embrace I Peter 5:7 - Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.

Care for a Party Bus?

Browsing online about anything and everything under the sun is what I sometimes do to learn new things. I am currently planning my mother-in-law's 80th birthday and have been looking for different venues and caterers and even limo services for the occasion. Wouldn't it be grand for my mother-in-law to arrive for the party riding a stretch-limo!

I landed on a website about a Boston Limousine Service company. The company offers great packages for weddings, promenades, bachelor/bachelorettes parties, night-out parties or corporate limousines. What's impressive about the company is that you have a wide variety of choices of Boston Limousines . For a wedding you can have your pick of a Cadillac Escalade limousine or a Lincoln Town Car stretch. The package is inclusive of a tuxedoed chauffeur, champagne, soft drinks & water, three-hours of service and their signature Red Carpet Service. Impressive! The company also rents out limo coach, mini coach, activity coach and school bus. Why? Well it seemed partying has evolved and you can rightly "par-tee" in your Boston Limousine! The company's SUV limousines are equipped with DVDs, a Playstation 2, a 2000 watt sound system, neon lighting, laser show, and a fireplace. You can even ask for hard wood floors to dance the night-away. Isn;t this something? Maybe I should just rent a party bus for ma-in-law's birthday bash.

Paint Job

I am a certified DIY - do-it-yourself(er). I like to tinker and putter about the house and garden fixing and sprucing up things. I even tried my hand on actually painting the interior of our house as it's easy enough. The only problem that I encountered was how to paint the "high" parts like the ceiling and top of the walls and cabinets. I am a very resourceful person but I know when to hire a professional painter when I do need one. Why? For one thing I do not possess the right equipment like scaffolding, high ladder, and compressor for real tough painting jobs.

Hiring an Atlanta Painter is the most practical thing you can do when you want a professional-looking paint job. Painting our home is a routine maintenance job but a botched job defeats the purpose. Believe me when I say that not everyone can paint! Look for the right Atlanta painter through the yellow pages or the internet. Finding one would be easy enough but finding the right one for the job might take some probing. Tell the painter the scope of the work to be done for the quotation and estimate. Make sure the painter has his licenses and permits in order. If you have decided that the painter is the right contractor for you make sure the contract drawn has a guarantee on the paint job.

It's Time to Get a Web Host

I have been contemplating on buying a domain for this blog and then transferring to my own webhosting site. My other blog has its own domain name but I am still with a free hosting site. My plan is to get a domain name for this blog then get a credible and functional webhosting package for my two blogs. There are a lot of webhosting packages offered by numerous web host providers in the net today. The question is who gives the best deal at the best possible price? I checked to find out the top ten web hosts for 2009.

Almost all web host providers offer unlimited space and traffic, host unlimited domains and free domain name forever. The quantifying issue then would be the monthly fees and technical support. The only real problem I have now is how will I go about transferring my domains to a web host provider? I don't know how! Exploring each of the top ten webhosting sites I learned that these companies will help me setup my domain transfer and other pertinent stuff. With unlimited add-on domains, unlimited hosting space and file transfer, the special promo of $1.99 is a steal!

Thinking of finally buying your own domain name and acquiring the services of web hosting company? Check out www.webhostinggeeks. com. The site even has blog articles pertaining to everything you need to know about web hosting.

Do You Need a Plumber?

My house's water overhead tank has a leak! The leakage is costing me money for my usual water bill escalated to double. I checked the cause of the leak and I found that the main water pipe's connection to the water tank is showing signs of wear and tear. I have been telling my husband to get a professional plumber to do the job for the repair job that he has been doing is just not good.

True, we could save money by handling small jobs like unclogging drains or replacing water faucet gaskets but we should also recognize when to call in a professional. If you happen to live within the greater area of Birmingham, it's best to call in help from a reliable Birmingham Plumbing company like RC's H20 Services. The company deals with plumbing repair and maintenance, plumbing and draining, SVRS, layout remodel and even new installations. Choosing the right plumber for the job should be easy. Be specific with your job order so the plumber could estimate the scope of work and its cost. It's better to get quotes from different plumbers so you could compare the pricing. On your part, check that the plumber has the necessary licenses and permits. Put everything - job agreement, final cost, payment terms - in a contract for that would ensure protection both ways.

Tampered Locks!

Being a weekend I fetched my son from his apartment with my two girlfriends in tow. As I parked the car in front of his apartment, out came my son dressed only in shorts. I was about to reprimand him that we're running late and would still be running more late as he was not yet dressed and packed, when he blurted

"Mom!, I have something to tell you."

As always that sentence never fails to stop my heart from beating. That sentence has always been the prelude to an almost-always disastrous news.

"What is it?" I asked calmly.

Well, the news was bad news but not in a life-altering way. It seemed that my son and one of his apartment mates came in late Wednesday after their volleyball training. He said he remembered closing the self-locking gate as he proceeded inside the house. The following morning his mountain bike parked inside the carport was gone. Someone picked the lock of the carport gate!

The same thing happened to a friend of mine. Her main door was picked and her house was burglarized. After the incident she called in a Kansas City Locksmith to check all her outside door locks and knobs. The locksmith found some tampering on some door locks and suggested to my friend to buy new ones. It is always handy and wise to have your door and gate locks be checked by a qualified locksmith to make sure no tampering or wear and tear has occurred.

He Makes Up the Difference

Today's Scripture

“…for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength)” (II Corinthians 12:10, AMP).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

No matter what weakness you think you may have, no matter what inadequacies or setbacks you’ve encountered, God wants to give you His divine strength. He wants to make up the difference and put you further ahead than you ever thought possible. One time in the Old Testament, God simply multiplied the sound of four men’s footsteps and caused them to sound like a mighty army. When their enemies heard them, they took off running. There were thousands of enemy troops running for their lives, scared to death, thinking they were being attacked by a massive army when in fact it was just four people! What happened? God made up the difference.

Friend, God can make you seem bigger than you really are. He can make you look more powerful. He knows how to multiply your influence, multiply your strength, your talent and your income. You don’t have to figure it all out; all you have to do is put your trust in Him. If you will release your faith for a supernatural year and wake up every day expecting God’s far and beyond favor, then you’re going to see God show up and make the difference in every area of your life!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, today I commit every area of my life to You. I trust that You will make up the difference and supply everything I need to fulfill Your purposes in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Certified Ethical Hacker

I have always been in awe of hackers - that is, internet hackers. How do they do it? What genius do they possess that they could actually hack into almost any website? How could they actually stomach spreading virus after virus into unsuspecting simple computer users? Believe when I say that I have had one big bad experience with a hacker. He or she hacked an online payment account of mine and stole about $500 from my account. The experience left me weak and $500 poorer.

Now, what is this that I hear about ethical hacking? Seems like there is an online course relating to IT Security where students are taught how to hack secure websites to better equip the said websites on how to tighten any loop holes in their security. Certified Ethical Hacker is a great course for despite economic recession, IT security jobs are on the rise and with substantial pay to boot. Aside from Ethical hacking, the site also offers classes in Security Fundamental, Penetration Testing, Computer Forensics, Disaster Recovery and Secure Programming. Go check out the site EC-Council to learn more about it's easy online registration. You could also views its list of upcoming online classes. I would definitely check it out as it sounds real interesting.

Town Fiesta

The people of my adoptive town breathe and live for the annual town fiesta. There are a lot of parades and processions ongoing during the two-day celebration. I am not an advocate of fiestas as I see it as a total waste of money that could be used to help the real needy. Anyway, that's a blog topic of another day. Here are some pictures of some real "street" dancing to the tune of Filipino folk songs.

This parade had a "cast" of a thousand or so as there are numerous marching bands and more group of dancing ladies all eager to "street" dance.

Do You Need a Fast Loan?

My friend and her husband had to come home to Manila immediately to attend the funeral of my friend's father-in-law. Money was tight so she had to settle for a fast loan that she was able to secure from a Car Title Loans Los Angeles company. The processing was fast with no undue hassles. She had a back up plan to get a loan from a Car Title Loans Sacramento firm but it turned out unnecessary. My friend and her hubby were able to fly home with the much needed cash secured in their pockets.

How Does A Title Loan Work? You don't need to have a good credit card standing to secure a loan. All you need is a clean title to a car with a wholesale value of at least $5,000. The car serves as the collateral but there's no need to hand over the car itself. The lender would need to ensure that you have the title, registration, a valid driver’s license, proof of full coverage insurance, an extra set of keys and other required documents you can get the money you need the same day. The loan could be a short-term 30 days payment scheme or a flexible payment arrangement of up to 36 months.

When the A/C compressor Conks Out

About a year ago, I was tasked to drive my son's volleyball team to a competition. It was in the middle of simmer and therefore excruciating hot. With about 12 big-tall-over-excited teens cramped in my van, I proceeded to drive. The venue was about 30 km. away from home base. Half-way through, the boys at the back of the van started to complain that the auto a/c was not working. True enough, the compressor conked out! We reached the game venue, cranky and hot. What a day for your a/c compressor to give-out. It's great that you can avail of bargain-priced a/c compressors at Diesel Parts Pro. The site also offers different auto parts and more. My van, diesel gas powered, might need a new diesel fuel pump injector. I might as well check the site out.

Busted Hot Water Line

I received a call from one of my former clients the other day. She said her main bathroom is not receiving any hot water at all. I asked her if the rest of the house's faucets are and she answered yes. Now, that set me thinking. What could have happened? As an architect I basically do all the floor plans of a house including its electrical,plumbing and sanitary layout. There's no reasons for the main bathroom not to get hot water from the main boiler room unless some form of a blockage happened in the hot water line. I called the plumbing sub-contractor who did the actual layout and he found an accumulation of sandy precipitation in the pipes.

It is always handy and practical to get the services of s qualified plumber for new water pipe layout and repairs. If you're living within the are of Atlanta it's best to get the services of an Atlanta Plumbing company like TAPP Plumbing for your: Water heater Installation, Water main replacement/Repair, Leak Detection & Repair, Toilet Replacement/Upgrade to low flow flush, Fixture exchanges (faucets, tub & shower valves) and even for tips and ways for Water Conservation. Finding the right plumber for the job is easy enough. Make sure that he has the proper licenses and insurance coverage for the job. On your part make sure that you are specific with the scope of work and any budget limitations you may have.

A Mother's Love

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. I hate the commercialism that goes with the day but hey! that's life. As a mother myself, I have gone through a lot of hardship and sacrifices for the sake of my children. I believe that that fruits of the spirit as mentioned in Corinthians is an apt description of a mother's love to her child.

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud;
is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish;
is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs;
takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth;
love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,
and endures all things. ~I Corinthians 13:4-7

To all the great mothers out there: Happy Mother's Day

Lost Keys

My eldest child was about 20 months old when she unknowingly locked-in my newborn baby in my bedroom. The key was nowhere to be found. I think it was inside the bedroom itself. My hubby was not at home. It was only me and my two baby girls: one locked inside the bedroom, the other one with me outside the locked the bedroom asking me why I was crying. I had no way of unlocking the door. I do not know who to call as we were new in the neighborhood. What I did defies explanation up to now. I got myself a real sharp knife and tried to pry open the doorknob with it all the while praying. I can hear my month old baby crying and what worried me more was that she was not in her crib but on my bed. A few minutes of praying and prying brought on a miracle. The door was unlocked and I was to get in just in time. From then on I made sure I had sets of extra keys every where in the house.

If you only have one key for a certain door, make sure you call a qualified locksmith to make you a copy. If you lose a key and can't find it, a locksmith will come in handy too - he could either pick the lock or fabric a new one. A friend of mine called in an Orlando Locksmith when she lost her set of house keys. She had the locksmith copy her husband's set and for good measure had two sets made. She said the service was of high quality and very affordable.

God's Promises

God has made a lot of promises for his children. If you have faith in God and believe in what the Bible says, then you have thousands of God's promises to hold on to. What's the first promise that I hold on to? It's John 3:16.

For God so loved the world that He gave his only son
that whoever believes in Him shall not
perish but have everlasting life.

I will try to write down all of God's promises and share them with you. Be assured that God keeps his promises.

Get Rid of Junk

My garage is a total disaster area. There's just too much junk and scrap crammed in there that we've not been using for the longest time. If it were up to me, I'd call a Junk Hauling company and rid my garage (and my life) of all the useless items in the nooks and crannies. My hubby likes to hoard junk but if he were to know of a good junk removal company I guess he'd fold in and have our junk and scrap hauled. Why do I say so? Well, for one thing, we can't park any car in the garage now as it has become our storage room.

I need to find a good junk removal company soon. The rainy season is due to come and we've nowhere to park our cars. Junk Removal in San Diego is not a problem.

Landscaping Needs

I am an amateur gardener. I love to plant all kinds of shrubs, flowers, plants and trees in my my modest-sized backyard. One part of my garden is for my flowering plants.Another section is for my shrubs and other greens. The tree nearest my terrace is filled with all kinds of orchids. The thing is, even if I could grow flowers and plants, my garden has no cohesive motif or theme. I know that I need to get a professional landscaper if I want my garden to "bloom" in a sense.

Now, how would I chose the right landscape company? An good landscaping company would be prepared to show you a portfolio of their finished works.

When You Need Help

I just had my monthly check-up today. The doctor said my medications are doing their job. However, I need another month of taking the same medicines before having laboratory works like blood chemistry and the likes. Another month of worrying as where to get the money for the meds. Sigh. As a child of God, I know I have nothing to worry about. I have been down and out before but the Lord never fails. Remember this verse and believe.

Therefore I tell you,
whatever you ask for in prayer,
believe that you have received it,
and it will be yours.

Mark 11:24

Profitable Business Idea

I am now seriously thinking of investing in vending machines for business. Life is hard. Earning money is harder what with current global recession et al. I know of a friend who has vending machines located in strategic places like schools and public buildings and she is earning quite a lot of money without the hassle. Now, not all vending machines are the same. We've all had our share of non-functioning vending machines. I browsed the net, found and learned that the 1800Vending Refreshment Center is one of the best if not the best vending machine there is. Designed to be highly functional and attractive the machine has snack, healthy snack, soda, juice, bottled water, sports drink and energy drink in it. It accepts $1 and $5 bills and upgraded coin changer and electronic sales history program.

Years of research and testing has enabled the company to come up with the list of products that are best sellers. The snack and soda vending machine is secure, tamper-resistant and has maximum security lock that a 7-Year Written 100% Limited Warranty on every single part.

When You Need Wisdom

At times, it feels that nothing we do or say is right. When wisdom is needed think of this verse.

If ant of you lacks wisdom,
he should ask God, who
gives generously to all
without finding fault, and
it will be given to him.

James 1:5

Punk Rock is New Wave

I was a teener way back when punk rock was first introduced in the music scene. While most songs in the mid 70s were all about the Carpenters, Abba, Stylistics, EWF and other great artists, there was a small group of lesser known bands who wrote and sang song songs that were the anti-thesis of what was popular then. Are you interested to learn more about punk rock and maybe meet and get to know some soft to hard core punk rockers? Click the link and join for free this punk personals site.

The Beauty of Landscaping

I have just spend an overnight rest and recreation with some of my childhood girl friends. We left early Thursday morning and left Friday late afternoon. The place we went to was awesome. It was a beach front with villas or casas one can rent for overnight accommodation. The place was staffed by efficient and smiling personnel all willing to see to their guest's needs. The food was delicious as evident of the buffet and ala carte menu. What struck me most about the place was the beautiful landscaping of the whole resort. Hills and mountains were contoured to build access roads from the main roads. The landscape architect and his staff must have really sweated out the design and layout of the resort.

Are you one of those who love to see beautiful scenery as you look out your window? Well, you could either start planning your garden or you could actually call an expert. Narrow Leaf Inc. is the prime Albuquerque Landscaping company in the said area and its vicinity since 1990.
