Red Charm

When we hear Barn what comes in our mind is  red but some barns are not but the equipment around are red,     see it for yourself. Can you find it?

Two different barns but both are charming.

Call a friend through Straight Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
What a way to call a friend  but with Straight Talk. Straight Talk has everything you need   for a phone and the service is right. A friend of mine got a note from her daughter and it say, mom knows best and she was so happy with that. Before, it is only my friends husband and her  who has the cell phones because their monthly bill is staggeringly high. In addition, to have another two cell phones for her daughter and son is a no no since they could not afford it anymore. Until she discovered Straight Talk and the beauty to go with it.
For monthly plans: - All you need plan is good for heavy phone users with 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data - $45 for monthly service and that includes calls, text, picture messaging and web. - 411 calls no extra charge - Activation, reactivation and termination fees are free! - International long distance is flexible prepaid ca…

Kids Know What's Fair

Image
Three days ago the box that I sent to the Philippines for my nieces, nephew and family arrived after almost 10 months of waiting. Inside the box are things that I knew they will be happy to see. I think the dresses that they wore in this photo comes from me and the stuff toys too. Here is what I read today that I would like to share:


Despite what many grown-ups might think, toddlers have a marked sense of fairness. In a recent study published in Psychological Science, journal of the Association for Psychological Science, 3-year-old shared a small reward with their peer after they worked together to earn it, even in situations where it was easy for one child to keep all the spoils.
To learn how youngsters share, the researchers paired children to complete a task for a prize, like gummy bears or colorful stickers, piled on a board with wheels inside a transparent box. If only one child pulled on a rope, the board wouldn't move, but if both pulled together, they could bring it close en…

He is getting big!

This year my nephew turn 12 and I am amazed how the also turn to be a big boy!! I remember when I visited the Philippines two years ago he is very small and thin. Though he eat good food but he is also very active and he has asthma. For several years when he is attacked my asthma we nebulize him. That is why before he had one opportunity to play basketball for the city little league was not able to do so because of his asthma. I am thankful that this year, as my brother told me that his asthma is gone! And that I won't get worried if he is going to play basketball again. Well I am always worried I only have one nephew and I consider him as my son too. Look at the difference of the photos.


TNT

TNT I don't know what it means but I presumed it could be the owners initial    


                       OMG! I did not know that TNT is a dynamite ^_^ I thought it is the owners name initial.
                                     I think it is about time to go back and look around just being nosy ^_^

His New Job

Image
Authored by Raymond Whitney


My brother recently accepted a job all the way out in Ohio and I’m really missing him a lot. We’ve gotten really close in the last few years and he’s actually got twin girls so I miss them a lot too. I know it’s a really good opportunity for him but I sure wish it had been closer to home so he didn’t have to go so far. I know he’s having a hard time adjusting, too, since they’ve got a country house now and he’s really used to being in town. I told him about hTTP://WWW.WILDBLUEDEALS.COM which I found looking around online and he said that’s helping his wife cope with some of the boredom. I love my brother and we’re a really close family so I hope he’s happy but that he gets to come home in a few years! We need him here to help round out the family and my mom is absolutely driving me up the wall – Ronnie come back soon!

Carbonite as I knew is a computer backup for your files, photos and music while you are working on your computer or laptop that when we are connected in the internet.

Tracfone a gift for your college student

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Wow how time flies we are in the middle of the month of August and most of the college students are gone but some are not yet. As a parent whose kid is going to college for the first time you can not sleep nor you can not contain your self. Well to appease what is lurking in your mind it is better for you to give them a Tracfone who does not require a 2 year contract  and no surprise bills. We knew that college is not cheap and we all haev to tighten our belt just to send our kids to college and Tracfone is the way to go for the kids to have one. And basing on what the customers had said they are happy when they change their phone services. And for me to see that there are happy customers out there who experienced first hand why not try Tracfone. Watch this video real TracFone customers and this one real TracFone customers ad you will all know what I am talking about.  Aside from …

            One thing that I am thankful is that I was not born in this era. But at the same time if I was born in this generation and happened to be in the Chinese culture and rich, I think I would also have to follow this tradition for I don't have any choice. I can only say that I am thankful that I was not born in this generation because I see how painful it is when at the age of three both your feet are broken for the purpose of getting a good husband.             But then I realize too that in our generation we have this kind of putting ourselves in danger just to get or find a good husband, to feel beautiful because our society tells us that, that is the real beauty.  What about boob enhancement,  women who wants to be taller many went under the knife, cut the legs to stretch the body, nose lift, and all those lift and not to forget be thin and slim!!  Every generation has it…

My 8 yr old niece

Image
Last August 13 my youngest niece celebrated her 8th birthday. It was just a simple birthday celebration I told them what is important is to thank God for the gift of life. So early in the morning they went to the Shrine and light a candle and pray. Since it is early in the morning my brother took them to the beach and they had fun there. Then they went home. In the afternoon they cooked spaghetti, bought a cake and decorate it and some other stuff. My brother texted me that they had fun because my nephews friend came and they all dance the afternoon away ^_^

My brother promised me that he would send the pictures tomorrow. I hope he do because I am excited to see it. Happy birthday AG and we love you!!

I have known people who started smoking at an early stage of their life. When they reach in their 40's their skin is like 20 years older than them and they are not in good health. But what ever you told them not to smoke they can't stop. Smoking is like an addiction too. And many research had been release that smoking can cause cancer. Now, that people know that smoking can lead to many illnesses people buy electronic cigarettes can you believe that?  Never in my wildest dream that an electronic cigarette could be invented. For me it's very cool and to those people who can not resist the temptation to smoke this is for them. I  look at there website and they have starter kits for starter it doesn't cost much and it is a 30 day guarantee and a 1 year warranty. I can't wait to call my step-daughter to tell her about this new electronic cigarette. She once told me that she wanted to stop but her husband should stop too. I only hope that they would like this idea cross…

See the light with NET 10

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Good morning friends! How’s your weather at your end? I hope everything is fine, here in Michigan for three days now we have gloomy sky and we also had rain, it makes the weeds and the vegetables grow fast ^_^. It’s the first week of the month and for our household that means bill payment time. Who doesn’t have bills? Though hubby and I don’t have credit cards but we have utility bills too. Here is what bothers me and it’s our phone bills. Do you see the Light   when you see your bill statement or you see the darkness because you fainted the amount staggers like weeds? We had that experienced few months ago when I didn’t know that my hubby’s phone service cost more than 30 cents extra for minutes used and a $1.00++ minutes for long distance. I think it’s normal to be mad when you feel like you are stupid? LOL!!! But it was an expensive lesson to deal with we paid more than $200 for t…

Photo Hunt:Painted

This are baby jars that kids in our church painted for their candle making project.

             I was in a parish school last few months ago and when I found my room I was amazed in what was painted on there wall. Here it shows Moses with the stone which The 10 Commandments were written. Then on the other side is the story of Jonah...remember Jonah the man who was swallowed by the whale and stayed inside the tummy for 3 days? ^_^ And that's not all there are still so many stories in the bible that they painted on every classroom. I like my classroom at church to have this kind of painting for sure the kids would love to see it all the time.

Moving out?

Image
When you are alone thinking about what's gonna be like in your future, are you somehow scared? With what's going on this days seems that everything is bleak and nothing says we are stable for now. I have known people that are already moving out and it's out of the state most that I've known. Well one that I knew find the Calgary apartments very pleasing to him and his wife that before they decided to do a drastic change of their life is to visit the place. Calgary is in Canada and the biggest city of the Province of Alberta. I too wanted to go to Canada because I find this country very pleasing to me. Moving out from the place that you are used to is kind of hard but if you also move to a place that has so many things to offer you kind of forget the place you came from right? ^_^ Many people are renting houses or apartments now a days they can't afford to have a house anymore for the fact jobs are not there. Well to those who want to move to Calgary,Canada, Calgary …

Well I'd tell you what that's Express jeans that hubby loves!! It's the only men's jeans that hubby couldn't live without because it fits on him well, the quality is good , very affordable, and stylish. Actually they have many designs but what hubby do like is the Kingston-Classic fit compare to others though he has one or two of the other fittings but he has more on the classic fit. Hubby works manual labor and he loves working his cars in the barn.
