My Daughter went to her friend's birthday party in Saturday at the Brian Pizza. They had a bowling party and a hula outfits.She had a blast, they took the hula outfit home and she wore it and show off and her dad took a picture. She look so cute I must say. Anyway .. just want to share the picture.
The Philippines is the fourth largest English speaking country in the world. It can accommodate budget travelers. If you are not on a budget, you can have the very best for a reasonable price. The Philippines is the only country in the world that welcomes foreigners from all other countries. It is one of the very few you can enter without a visa. You will need to get one after 21 days if you stay that long.
Get low airfare in the off season, May through October. You can even come over and back on a courier flight, any time and it's very cheap.Book your hotel in advance since the good hotels sometimes fill up quickly. You can always find a good "pension house", to accommodate you in the $35-$50 range. These will have private bath, cable TV, air conditioning and hot water most of the time.Travel by land since it is inexpensive. A ride across a large city like Cebu in an air conditioned taxi is about $2.40 US and the ride to most airports not much more than that. Most airports are close into town.
Jeepney fares, are Peso 6 - 7, about 10 cents us, the main mode of transportation for most people. They are colorful and fun except when it is raining, they do leak.If you want to tour around Manila in a much cheaper and faster long distances destinations, ride the LRT (Manila Light Rail Transit System) and the MRT (Manila Metro Rail Transit System) with fares ranging from 10-15 pesos (25-35 US cents) or a stored-value (multiple-use) ticket ranging from 100 to 200 pesos (2.50-2.80 US dollar). Eat out. American and other international foods are available. Fast food places from Pizza Hut, KFC, McDonald's to their own, Jollibee, abound and prices are cheaper than in almost every country in the world. Visit the nightlife. The Philippines is always voted as best in night life by the expats in Asia, and the prices are the best too.Go shopping. There are many local handicrafts to buy. Do not overlook the silver, handmade in Baguio City, in the north of the main island Luzon, famous for years. Baguio is one of the cooler places to go too, in the mountains, the City of Pines. Don't tip. Tipping is the exception, not the rule. If you want to be given preferred treatment, even without making a reservation, give a hefty tip immediately and discreetly. With that, you can almost expect to be treated like a king. Filipinos are avid practitioners of The Golden Rule. Get sporty. Golf and other entertainments abound. Japanese tourists fly from Japan stay two nights at a first class hotel, play two rounds of golf on the weekend, have a caddie and umbrella girl and a nice room and food for the price of one round of golf in Japan. See the movies. First run movies are about 3.00USD or less and sometimes are in the cinemas before they hit larger countries. Enjoy the friendliness of the people. The most valuable and least expensive thing of all is the Filipino smile. It is free and every where. Filipinos are happy people, they are fun and will make you happy, great entertainers and hosts. And do not be surprised if you call 1-800 and the operator is a Filipino. Almost all major US companies outsource their customer service and help desk in the Philippines.
Read the newspapers with a grain of salt. Problems with terrorism is worse in the United States and many other countries. The Philippines gets a bad rap from the newspapers who print the worst, never the best. To know for sure, find expats living in the Philippines. They will tell you that the Philippines is one of the safest places in the world. If you are planning to have a vacation in one of the beaches here, it is suggested that instead of going to the overrated and infamously known Boracay Island destination opt for a less crowded spots such as the island of Palawan that was rated by National Geographic Traveler magazine as the best island destination in East and South East Asia region in 2007, and the 13th best island in the world having incredibly beautiful natural seascapes and landscapes. For shoppers, you cannot miss visiting SM Mall of Asia which is the largest shopping mall in the Philippines and is the 3rd largest shopping mall in the world in terms of Gross Leasable Area according to Forbes Magazine. If you wish to enjoy some of Philippines's beaches, try the famous Boracay Island! Remember to bring sandals, suntan, umbrellas and sunglasses!!
It is better to have a Filipino friend or a travel guide with you. Don't leave personal belongings unattended. There is very little violent crime but plenty of petty thieves, or snatchers, in the cities. These are non-existent in the countryside. They are after cell phones, good ones, and gold jewelry. Consider a smaller city like Cebu City or Baguio City. Manila is very large, not ready for prime time yet. It is a great place to shop and do business, but a bit much for the first time traveler.Do not use drugs here. Prescription drugs are available. But one marijuana cigarette is punishable by 12 years imprisonment in a bad jail with horrible living conditions.Both alcohol and cigarettes are so inexpensive and sold 24/7 so no reason not to kill yourself with a legal drug, the worst. Filipinos do no usually have drinking problems of the proportion and frequency of those from most developed countries. Women have only recently started to drink and smoke and it is still not consider good taste or wise for a woman to indulge in vices. Men get away with just about anything. It is not like the US here. If you are looking for equality, the liberated woman, better go to a developed country. Filipinas, female Filipinos, unless they are professional "entertainers," will not get intoxicated with you. And even the "pros", have little interest in alcohol.
Things You'll Need:
Not much you cannot buy here cheaper. Do buy a cheap local cell phone, about $100 US. Best to get prepaid phones. Very convenient and easy to buy credits. Texts are US two cents, calls are about US 18 cents per minute. Most people text.
If you are willing to leave behind the USA, UK, Australia or other high cost expensive country and live in a foreign country, you can live or retire on $200 per month.
Decide if you can do it. Leaving your country and moving to another country can be a difficult experience for some people. In fact, even the stouthearted will have feelings of homesickness. Plus, you will have many new experiences and face many problems. Can you deal with that? If you are married and you want to retire to a foreign country, you need to consider the thoughts of your spouse and or children. If you are separated, divorced, or never married, then you can make the decision yourself.See if you have enough money to leave your country and move to another country. You need money for an airline ticket, and at least 6 months of living expenses to get settled. Consider teaching English in a non-English speaking country. This can pay very well, so you get savings plus life in a foreign country. Pick a country. A good choice right now is the Philippines (if you have no desire to learn another language, they all speak English) or China (if you are willing to learn at least some of the local language).Pick a city. Pick one that is safe. A mid-size city with many universities is best. In this environment, you can make many friends which is critical to your success. Do some research. Learn about the location you are going to. Buy some books such as Lonely Planet or similar guide books. Also make sure you check the level of air pollution of that city. Find a community or dating website that has people from that location. Try to make some friends in the city you will be living in. Do not bother with people outside or in the distant suburbs of your target city. You need friends who are close by to help you with getting settled. Get a passport. You need one to travel outside your country in most cases. Get a visa. You may need a visa to get into the target country.
Pack up your things. Remember, you can pay the airline for extra boxes if needed. Or you can have them shipped. If shipping, FedEx is always best. Don't rely on the new country's postal system. If possible visit your target city as a tourist first for a week (or two) to get the feel of the place and see if you really would like to live there. Does it feel safe to walk the streets at night? How do the locals treat foreigners? Remember that as a tourist you will probably get a romantic impression of the country. Living there may be a totally different ballgame. Make sure you meet some expats who have been living there for a few years and ask them about their experiences. When you get to your target city, check into a 2 or 3 star hotel. You should be able to find one for $25 a night in China, for example. Meet your friends you made on the internet. Meet them in a public place at first. They will ask if they can help you. Say yes. Try to improve your relationship by eating some food or by visiting some of the local tourist spots together. Be very careful with the local food and drinking water at first. Check whether it is safe to drink the tap water. Continue to make friends with people you are meeting. After some time, you will meet people with connections, and they can help you find a nice apartment or a job, if you need one. Slowly rebuild your life in the new country - enjoying freedom from the current rat race of American society.
A country that is fast developing with a healthy economy is the best choice. For example, China. True "third-world" countries are cheap, but perhaps not as comfortable as a developing country like China or India.Picking a city is important. Make sure it has a number of large, respected, universities. This is critical as the universities affect the local culture.Investigate whether you're better to sign up for a job with a company before you leave. In some industries it's best to wait until you are physically there so you can negotiate your wage. In other industries, such as education, it's far better to secure an 'international contract' before you leave. Such a contract will often include return airfares, accommodation, visas and work permits. Do your research - chat on line to professionals in your field for advice. You need to worry about your visa. Try to get one that is as long a term as possible. You will have to renew this often over time. Get information from the embassy of the country you want to move to about the costs and frequency of visa renewals, whether the visa will allow you to work there or not, whether you will have to leave the country every time you need to renew your visa or not. Visas can be the most frustrating aspect of living in another country. Bring old photos of your self and other things that define you as a person like your hockey shirt or something. Remember, you will be making new friends. These things will help you do that. Open a bank account in your new city. Put your money in the bank.
When meeting people for the first or few times until you have determined if they are at all trustworthy, useful, or desirable as a friend, meet them in a public place. Don't give your new friends money, PERIOD! Never loan them money. If there is some transaction that needs to take place for your own needs, like renting an apartment or buying a mobile phone, go with them and always handle the money. Be aware that in some countries the locals will expect you to pick up the tab whenever you go for a drink or a meal together.If you smoke, buy your own cigs and smoke them. Don't accept cigs from strangers. When drinking something, watch your drink so it is not possible for something to be added to it.Don't keep money in your hotel, apartment, or carry it around on you.

Buying American is a great way to support the American economy, as well as local producers. Look at the packaging when purchasing something. Products may have a "proudly made in the USA," a USA flag, "Made in USA," or a combination of them to declare they are made in America. Remember that if you are buying fruit, you may only be able to buy oranges, apples, and the like from the United States. Foods such as bananas, guava, and pineapples usually come from other, more tropical countries. Try your local farmer's market to get American-grown foods. Keep in mind that handmade goods such as some clothes and accessories can usually be purchased at a local craft fair. The creators of the article of clothing or accessory will most likely be selling their creations themselves. Search online for "made in the USA." These sites specialize in USA-crafted wares.
If you don't know the origins of a product, ask the manufacturer or a store manager.Local grocery stores that specialize in healthy and organtic foods will also stock many American foods. The stores will usually pull their stock from all across the country.Things labeled "Made in the USA" are not always as they seem. Sweatshop garments made in Saipan carry the label because Saipan is an American territory. There are also sweatshops in many large American cities such as New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, who exploit illegal immigrant labor in deplorable conditions. For more information look at www.globalexchange.org, or watch the great documentary "Behind the Label".

If you want to know how to get over a relationship in less than a week, you have to be willing to let this relationship go. Once you're ready, it's not so hard. Although it usually takes over 7 days to completely rid yourself of that "it's - over" syndrome, you'll be surprised to learn that you don't have to waste a week moping and dragging yourself down. This article is generally more useful for shorter relationships - marriages or more serious relationships can be harder to let go of in such short time.
Use the first day to cry it out, and release your feelings. This is the best thing to do, to vent out whatever you feel and just have some alone time. Don't suppress any emotions - confront the things upsetting and angering you and release them, whether it be by crying, screaming into a pillow, or writing it all down. Use your next day to talk it through, and sort things out.Talk to a friend or someone trusted about what you thought about your ex, but think more about why you broke up. Talking to someone else means there's someone to verbalize your issues with, rather than trying to cope with everything on your own. Spend the day trying to sort things out - remind yourself why you can deal without this relationship and list ways to help you start moving on. This day is for clearing your head and setting yourself a clear sketch of your future without your ex.
On the third day, get rid of any possessions your ex gave you. You can keep them if you think they are beneficiary or they bring good memories, but only look at it as a token of friendship, not of your relationship. If they bring bad memories, then throw it out or dispose of it in any way you desire. Don't hang things from your ex all over your room. It shows that you are still obssessed and really into your ex, and anyway, it's just not healthy. Nearing the end of the week, use this day for relaxing and enjoyment. Going out with a friend is a good idea, so they can comfort you and make sure you don't get depressed. Make sure you don't go somewhere that will bring memories of your ex. If you opt to spend the day alone instead, make sure you keep your mind off your ex and firmly on you. Pamper yourself, spend time relaxing, or go out and do something you enjoy to lift your spirits. On the fifth day, focus on yourself. Don't let yourself mope, but rather, spend some time re-working your goals and values and reminding yourself of who you are. Brush up on your independency skills and do whatever you can to make yourself strong.Remember who you are.Relax over the next two days. Essentially, you've done all the hard work. But use the extra two days to really stop thinking about your ex, or rather, sort it all out with yourself. Do things to make you happier and healthier and prepare yourself to properly move on.
Act in a respectable manner, always - don't lose your dignity. Friendship and loving family members are always a good support system after a hard breakup. Force yourself not to mope or be depressed - let yourself be sad but don't sink into a trap. Particularly after a very serious or long relationship, you may be left unsure of who you are, and what your true goals are, now that you're single. Spend a lot of time focusing on that aspect of yourself, as it will make you feel more focused and independent.
You may regret what you did.Not everybody is ready in one week to get through this routine, this is just a guide on how to get on the road to recovery Never go out on a date with someone else right after a relationship just as a distraction - it's selfish and in the long term, it won't help you much.
You enable yourself to choose a healthy snack by purchasing healthy foods from the grocery store! By making pre-emptive healthy decisions, you increase your likelihood of eating healthily when it actually comes to the fact.
Eat before you leave. When you go grocery shopping, make sure you are not hungry! If you are hungry when you go grocery shopping you are more prone to buy junk food. Add healthy ideas. If someone else shops for your household, politely suggest a list of healthy foods to guide their shopping decisions. This list should include many green vegetables (potatoes and corn are not green vegetables, so they don't count), a variety of fruits (limit the bananas), whole grain foods, lean meats, unsalted nuts (peanuts and cashews don't count) etc. Cut down on the junk food. If you find the transition from junky food to healthier food too extreme, begin by buying less unhealthy foods. For example, instead of Pringles™ buy baked tortilla chips; instead of ordering take out pizza, buy a veggie pizza at the store.
Avoid buying or accepting sweet and fatty foods! If these things aren't in your house then you can't be tempted by them! Especially dangerous foods that should be avoided are ice cream, cookies, any leftover desserts, and candy.Develop a routine of self control. So now that you have striven to keep unhealthy foods out of the house to begin with, you must focus on developing a strong sense of self control because you will not always be in controlled situations. Start by focusing less on food. If you look forward to coming home from wherever you have been and having a nice little snack; stop this destructive habit! The more you think about food, the more you build up a temptation to overeat. Think of eating as a necessity, not a comfort thing. Drink tea, coffee or water to soothe yourself on returning home. Match the healthy psychology about snacking with action. You can still allow yourself snacks, but eat slightly less and less frequently. A self-test to see if you're really hungry: if you search around the refrigerator and pantry, you are not really hungry; you're just eating compulsively. If you have a particular snack in mind, like eating an orange, you probably really do need nourishment. This is not to say, however, that just because you are craving ice cream it is alright to eat it. Remember to observe the distinction between mouth-hungry and stomach-hungry.
Keep the content of your snacks healthy. Try to balance them according to your meals. For example, if you ate cereal at breakfast, a cheese sandwich at lunch, and macaroni and cheese for dinner, you shouldn't have yogurt as a snack. Your best bet is to have a piece of fruit, snack bar, or a tasty vegetable, like carrots or baby tomatoes. Remember the crucial steps in eating spur-of-the-moment healthy snacks: first, be sure you buy predominantly healthy foods. This means avoiding anything the has a lot of trans fat, calories, or starch (especially sugar). Second, try to exercise self-control. Too much of anything is bad for you, so don't eat huge snacks. Third, don't focus or depend on your snacks. Only eat them when you are actually hungry. Fourth, when you do eat snacks, eat something that will supply you with nutrients lacking from your meals. Finally, you can always count on whole grain foods, fruits, vegetables, and most unprocessed foods to be relatively healthy.
If you slip up and eat something really bad, it's absolutely ok unless you make it a habit! Don't engage in the practice of social eating. If you're at a party, avoid the appetizer dish (usually finger foods have an enormous amount of calories). Here are some ideas: walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts (all unsalted), oranges, apples, banana, raw veggies (carrots, celery). If all else fails, keep some gum handy. Its five calories are quite a contrast to the hundreds you could consume from an unneeded snack. Also, strongly flavored teas can assist, such as peppermint, because they take away the dryness and tastelessness of your tastebuds and give you a sense of having enjoyed something.
Ice cream tends to be an addictive trap. Once you are used to having it every day, you begin to crave it. To curtail this problem, don't allow yourself daily access to ice cream (i.e. don't keep it in your freezer regularly). If you didn't already know this, oil is liquid fat. However, it is the kind of fat that your body needs. It is known as unsaturated fat, and is your BEST choice compared to saturated and trans fat. Don't let the term "partially hydrogenated" confuse you, either. This is just a fancy way for saying "trans fats added".Popcorn is delicious and healthy, when you don't add liquid butter (again, this is fat). Try sprinkling a little Parmesan cheese on top for flavor. Stay away from anything that has "high fructose corn syrup". It is an artificial sugar that contains several health hazards.

Despite the perfect picture families that always seem to loom over us on television, posters and bill boards, there are many more complexities and dynamics to families than all smiles and laughter. All families are different, and all families have their own issues, but with the right amount of work and determination, you can make your family life the best it can be, by developing your relationships and learning more about yourself and your relatives. No one's family life is perfect; but you can make yours good, so why not?
Respect your parents. Do this not just by giving them respect, but by listening to what they say and trying your best to make them happy. Realize that you may be able to choose your friends, but you're born to your family. If there's nothing you can do to please your parents, you'll be happier if you just accept it for now and focus on pleasing yourself. Making others happy is secondary to being happy yourself. And things do change over time.
Realize that life is not always going to go smoothly. Try to face the "ups and downs" in your family life with positive thinking and a cool mind. But your family doesn't have the right to make you miserable just because they're family. Try to get along, but if it doesn't work, let it go. Try to compromise whenever and wherever it's possible. When you see that the people who you love most are happy, you will have a feeling of great happiness. You will have to compromise a lot in life; family is the first environment to begin learning this important skill, amongst people who know you best and can guide you with their reactions, thoughts and suggestions. Even the things they don't tell you become a learning experience. Give occasional gifts to your family members. Surprise gifts can be great because most people love them. The best gifts tend to be the ones you make yourself, or put a lot of thought into. Also appreciated are gifts of your time; doing tasks around the house that haven't been done for a while such as painting touch-ups, restoring missing door handles etc. and clearing away clutter. Be honest with your parents, but bear in mind that they don't always need to know everything. If you get along well, you can open up, but if you don't, avoiding tender subjects can keep the peace. Sometimes saying nothing can be better for a family relationship than saying everything. Family is forever. Why fight about the little things? Feel free to communicate with each and every person in your family. Listen to them when they want to say something; try to be with them when they need you. Bear in mind that the needs of your family don't outweigh your own. Give them your time and love, not your life.
Dedicate a slot, it may be once a week or once a month in which you have a 'Family Time'. This could be anything, watching a movie together, playing a game, going out on a trip, but make sure it is something everyone will enjoy. Eat together. Modern-day life makes this virtually impossible to do, however, it really does change your family life dramatically -- for the better. Make time for siblings. They know you best, and they will tell you the whole truth, even when you don't want to hear it. As we grow up, our relationships with siblings may not be as strong as we think, but when you're older you may find yourself grateful for the work you put in now. Be supportive, encouraging and honest. Accept that your relationship with your family depends on both you and them. If they can't meet you halfway, you will be happier if you don't spend all of your energy making all the effort.
* Be patient.
* Compromise is the most valuable tool you have.
* Sometimes families are just dysfunctional. It happens. You come first.
* Don't put everything down to hormones. If your teenager feels reluctant to talk to you, he or she may be upset about something or being bullied. Ask if everything is okay.
Family members are never entitled to be abusive. If they are, don't waste your time. They can't always be won over with patience and kindness. Stay out of toxic situations when you can.

It's on 70's here today. The weather is really nice compare in the pass few days.I was out earlier playing with our puppy pepsi. And of course flowers are out, the air full pollen and that causes my eyes to swell earlier. I end up going inside the house for I cannot take the it anymore. My eyes was itchy and watery... that mean my allergy is kicking my butt. I know it's time of that year again. Allergy pill routine.
My niece just have her first born Wednesday. She called me six hours after she had the baby. The delivery went really well, she had second degree rip which is natural for natural birth. She had a baby boy named Nataniel, the baby weigh 7lbs 5 oz. Which is I think the baby is big compare to my niece size. My niece is very slender that is why I said that. Anywho.... I got to go see the baby yesterday... the baby is so tiny and cute. Seem like I forgotten how tiny is the baby when they are born LOL. Hey it's been like 9 years, since I had my daughter.
My niece was complaining that her back is killing her,it's normal because she had that normal birth. Her body is still adjusting from all the pushing and things. So, I gave her a massage, which it ease the pain a little bit. I told her to soak at least twice a day and ask her husband to massage her back.
I wasn't able to take a picture when I visited her yesterday, we were busy chatting and giving her tips on things about the baby. But definitely take a picture next time I visit her.

This is how to prevent would-be burglars from entering your property.
Erect a strong, tall fence around the perimeter of your garden to keep opportunist burglars out. The Neighborhood Watch Trust recommend topping the fence with trellis. Its lightweight structure makes it very difficult for someone to climb over. See warnings. Close off any side passage ways on your property with a tall and sturdy gate. This should be lockable, preventing would be thieves from slipping around to the back of your house where they can work unseen. Plant deterrents, like prickly hedges. Plant them strategically around your garden to block any unwanted entrance points. Make sure the hedges don't obscure the view of the front door from the road, as this would give potential burglars the perfect cover to break in. Secure your shed. All sheds and other outbuilding should be solid enough to withstand being kicked in, and be secured with a substantial lock. Other than being stolen your expensive tools could be used to break into the house.
Contact the Crime Prevention officer from your local police station, they will be able to advise you on the security measures specific to your property. If there isn't already a Neighborhood Watch scheme in your area consider setting one up. Don't leave any valuables, such as bikes, unlocked.Never top a wall or fence with barbed wire or broken bottles. Not only is this harmful to cats and birds, but also makes it your responsibility if anyone injures themselves on it.

Many tasks can seem far too daunting, especially to chronic procrastinators. So you procrastinate and procrastinate, and you never get the dastardly deed over with!
1. Remember that you'll feel much better once you've done it. You're already stressed out, or at least filled with dread. Keep in mind that, once you're done with this terrible task, that will be the end of it, and you'll be able to move on.
2. Eliminate distractions Think about what you have to do and nothing else. If necessary, unplug your TV, computer and phone to prevent distractions.
3. Remember that you're more likely to regret never having tried than you are to regret failure. Putting off asking out that cute girl? Just think how much worse you'll feel if you never ask her than if you ask her and she turns you down. What if you found out months later that she had once liked you?
4. Get any thoughts of failure out of your head. For example, if you can't bring yourself to write that English essay, visualize getting a paper with a huge "A+" on the top. Try your hardest to not think about rejection or failure.
5. Just do it. Block out all other thoughts, and put yourself in the "zone." Just run up there and do it; don't look back!
6. Set stopping points for rewards Just got through half your essay? Done with twenty of the algebra problems? Stop for a few minutes, do something you enjoy as a reward. Just remember to start again.
7. Congratulate yourself. You just overcame the hardest of all conflicts: man against himself. Bask in the glory, even if you didn't do as well as you hoped you might have!
Don't let yourself be talked out of doing what you want to do. That way, it'll never get done. Cut out all negative influences from your life.Once you've gone out into the firing line , do what you need to do and do it well. Wimping out makes you look weak and you'll look like you have no backbone.

If you have been stigmatized in any way, remember that sometimes the people stigmatizing us or insulting us are insecure that we may be better than them, smarter, or more talented. Such insecure, jealous types will use anything about a person to tear them down to the their own level of self-worth.Consider the source of the stigmatization. Is this person singling you out because of his or her own insecurities and jealousies? If so, get away from the person, because they will do nothing but try to diminish you. Ask the person to stop, even if the negative characterization of you has some truth to it. Focus instead on your good points, and build on these. It's good to face the truth about yourself in order to make improvements, but this does not have to be done in an abusive and shame-based way.
Flush out any negative feelings you have about yourself. Spend a few days letting yourself feel the horrible shame and stigmatizing feelings, don't stuff them, then bring all of it to the light with prayer, meditation, and caring for oneself well with good nutrition, exercise, and writing, and more writing, your feelings, and anything else that needs to come out. Get together with friends who support you. Go out and do things you like. Beware: if you party and use drugs or drink, these could exacerbate your negative feelings. Avoid hanging out with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Many times, when a person gets stigmatized by a friend (not a real friend, that is), others who know the person who stigmatized you could pretend to befriend you, then next you know, they are stabbing you in the back with even worse stigmatizing. Exit any places where you know it's not good for you to be. Don't test the waters, just go. Reduce your anger. Try writing with paper and pen (not computer), hitting a pillow for anger, eating nutritionally, and spending time with supportive friends whose presence makes you feel better.
Pilates can be practiced at home, away from any 'audiences' of people who may be offending you right now, or who you don't need input from. Try to find one with flashcards and CD's such as 'Brook Silers' pilates program. Brook Siler; The Pilates Body Kit. Scroll down to 'external links' and check for Brook Siler's program. Pilates balls, mats, and other equipment are not necessary in order to work-out with pilates. DVD kickbox work-outs: These DVDs can help you build power, as in personal power, not negative power. As you practice the kicks, punches, and exercises in a kickbox work-out, you will feel more confidence and empowered. Right now, what is needed is to feel confident again. Build the kind of power which helps a person to be assertive without having to struggle at it.
After a workout, relax a little while, then try loading up the blender with a mixture of fruits and vegetables you like. Add flaxseed to it. Flaxseed is full of nutrition, including Omega-3 which helps to reduce cholesterol. Add a small tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, yogurt, a teaspoon of vanilla, nuts, and a little sugar. Depending on where your weight is, either make the smoothie with as much calories as you want, or limit the calories by not adding the olive oil or nuts. Read books on subjects that are entertaining but not negative. Eliminate pornography, violence, or negativity from the books you read and the TV shows you watch. It's okay to watch some violence and negativity, but don't make a ritual out of it. Sometimes violent movies could help an angry person resolve unresolved rage, but it's not often this helps, and do not make a daily habit of watching violence and negativity. Listen to electronica, alternative, classical, and other music that won't completely put you in a violent or negative mode, even if you feel like basking in violent rap or rock, do it for only a little bit, not all day.
Watch out for friends or associates of the person that embarrassed, shamed, or stigmatized you. They may pretend to befriend you in order to find out more information about you in order to shame you further, or they can act nice and then do something mean, or backstab you to the point where you might find it hard to cope.

Check this out! Yesterday was raining, hailing and was cold. Today, when I woke-up... the sun was up and the sun still out. It look so warm out right? But once you open that door, the wind feels like its cutting your skin... at least that is how I feel.
It supposed to be spring... but feels like it's fall or something. Of course weather here in Seattle is kind of hard to predict. Sometimes the news say..the weather would be nice but it usually change. I put away my winter clothes last week ...guess what I had pull it back out. Weird weather1
Do you want beautiful healthy looking skin? Skin care is healthy. Whatever is happening on your face is an indication of what's happening on the inside. Stress, diet, and lifestyle play large factors in the condition of your skin, but using the right products correctly will help create a healthier skin. Some people may use bar soap and hot water and that's it. But, keep in mind there are always better choices for your skin.
Skin care is all about maintaining hydration and getting whatever oils you naturally produce free flowing and not clogged. Oil is good for your skin! There is no use in 'drying it up.' When you dry up oil from your skin, you dry up the water too. Your skin will produce more oil and it won't be able to get out because of cellular build up of dehydrated sticky cells on the surface. Follow these instructions as best you can to create a healthy skin.
If you are having issues with your skin seek out a well established and knowledgeable Eustachian and dermatologist to find something right for you.
Wash your hands properly. If you don't, the bacteria and oil from your fingers can get in your pores and create infection and breakouts.
Remember people speaking endlessly about inner beauty? DARK LEAFY GREENS Richly colored leafy greens like Broccoli, Spinach, drumstick leaves are full of antioxidants that cleanse your skin from the inside.Cleanse your skin with an appropriate cleanser. Do not use soap ever. Soap has an alkaline pH and will strip your skin of its natural acidity leaving your skin vulnerable to bacteria and dehydrated. Most foaming cleansers will do this, especially Cetaphil because of its sodium Laurel sulfate content. Don't use anything that makes your skin feel tight after rinsing. Use warm water that is not too hot. Sudden temperature changes in the skin can permanently dilate capillaries. With your fingertips, rub cleanser on your skin in an upward circular motion. Rinse the cleanser with warm water and/or facial sponges.
Always use a toner after cleansing. Use an alcohol free, hydrating toner. Toner's purpose is not to 'clear blackheads' or do anything but hydrate the skin. You can either spray or wipe a toner. After cleansing, use a cotton pad to wipe toner over your skin to remove any makeup or cleanser residue. If you do not wear makeup or 'have no time for toner' use a spray toner or put toner in a spray bottle and mist your skin. DO NOT LET TONER DRY. Leave your skin damp from the toner as it will act like a magnet to bring water to the surface and bring ingredients from your moisturizer deeper into your skin. Always use an appropriate moisturizer for your skin. Only if you are very oily or acne-prone is it necessary for you to use oil free moisturizers. Do not be afraid of oil! It is lubrication for your skin and protection against wrinkles. Use an SPF of at least 15 or 30 in your daytime moisturizer. Do not use an SPF at night. Night moisturizers are a good time to use something very nourishing or targeted to a specific skin issue.
Exfoliate your skin 1 to 3 times a week. You can do this in several ways, but the most common is to use a scrub. Again, choose a gentle scrub (often creamy with rounded sloughing beads instead of jagged particles like nut shells etc) that does not leave your face feeling tight. On days when you exfoliate, you should do this after cleansing and follow with toning and moisturizing.
If your skin is still very dry, look into using a serum after toner and before moisturizer and consult an Eustachian or dermatologist for advice.
If your skin is very oily and breaking out, you may need to have further tests done, so consult a dermatologist or Eustachian for advice.
Finally, everyone can use eye cream at any age. Most eye creams make great lip balms as well. Keep it beside your bed so you don't forget to use it.
Make a mask by mixing un coated aspirin with water and a dollop of honey. The aspirin will eliminate pimples, and the honey is antibacterial. Leave on for 10 minutes minimum.
Eat lots of berries
Take a tablespoon of Flax seed oil everyday.Limit sugar and high-glycemix index carbohydrates like watermelon, rice and heavily processed grains
Try not to eat anything with more than 5 things on the ingredients list
Moisturize with Jojoba oil which is close to your skins natural sebum in consistency. It will also help to fade marks/scars.
Drink at LEAST 64 oz of water each day to maintain hydration in the body and purge toxins regularly.
Quit smoking.Don’t forget to moisturize.Blend your makeup to make it look more natural.Wear brightly colored clothing to distract from nasty pimples.Wash your face after sports or exercise. Wash before also if you wear makeup.Eat dark green vegetables.
Exercise regularly.Cut out or cut down on caffeine as it is a diuretic and can dehydrate you.For an extra facial hygiene step, use a good quality, facial masque. When using after you wash your face thoroughly, this works like an exfoliate to open your pores and remove of dead skin. The masques with exfoliating beads are the best.If you have severe acne, see a dermatologist or Eustachian.
Exfoliating is great to open pores and cleanse your body of dead skin, however, exfoliate too much. You may cause your skin to become raw, or otherwise very painful.

Oh wow! In the pass few days, the weather was really nice over here in Seattle, we were able to drove and walked in Alki beach. But when I woke up this morning, my mouth dropped open because of the suck weather outside. We were heading out to Wally mart to buy my puppy a dog to munch on.....it was sprinkling at first,then the tiny sprinkle became larger and harder dropped of rain and that nasty rain became hail! WAAAAAAAAAAA.
I thought spring finally hit Seattle, but that was a false alarm alright. It was snowing in some places and snowing hard in the cascade mountain. Which is suck! The tulips festival supposed to be the end and first week of april, guess what? The tulips are lacking sunshine for them to bloom. The tulips festival would be in two weeks.I love Seattle but I hate the weather.... well I hate it sometimes:)

Keeping a baby entertained is really quite easy. They enjoy exploring almost everything,and love to take things out of a purse, or from drawers.
Place the baby on the floor on their stomach or back or place them in a bouncy seat. Make sure with this that there is a toy or an on object in front of him so he could focus on that and play with it.Find a set of keys and jingle them in front of the baby. They can get easily distracted by something like this, if you can’t find a set of keys try a toy that shakes or rattles. Make funny sounds, talk to him, or even make faces. Babies love to be talked to and have the attention focused on them. Walk around the room with them in your arms so they can see what is going on. Sing songs. Play "patty cake" or "itsy bitsy spider" or other hand games. Play "peek-a-boo" - teach the baby to lift the blanket up and down himself. Give the baby something she isn't normally allowed to play with - plasticware, pots and pans, empty boxes and your purse.Go on an outing - babies love to watch other kids. Take a little one to the park and let her watch the bigger kids play. Even going to a nearby area, like the backyard, corner store, or checking the mailbox will entertain a baby. Read a Book to a Baby or Infant. Try using different voices, tones, pitches, gruffness, and accents to make it more entertaining. Point at and name things on the page. Build a tower out of blocks together. Or build a tower and let the baby knock it down. Try moving the baby around the house, apartment, or whatever every half-hour or so. To the baby, it may seem like an entirely new place to play.
Take off the baby's clothes, and put him or her in an empty bathtub to play for a while. Many babies love having some time without clothes on, and it can be good for treating and preventing diaper rash. Bathe an Infant; many rugrats really enjoy a bathtime. And parents love coming back to a clean, happy baby. Put on some music and dance with the baby held in your arms (not too rough)! Many babies love ripping paper, like newspaper. Just be careful that the paper doesn't get into the mouth. To help prevent such a problem, offer the baby a pacifier as he or she plays with the paper. Try to find paper that's very clean or uses soy-based ink if possible. Make room for baby in his toy box and sit him in there with his toys to play. Play in the closet, or under a blanket tent with flashlights and other toy lights.
Shiny or noisy objects and toys always seem to help. When making faces you want to be careful as to what faces you make, you don't want to scare the baby and have them crying. Also when talking to him you want to talk in a nice soothing and calming voice, nothing to alarming for them.If the baby does start to cry, blow a stream of air towards his or her face, gently like you were trying to cool a bowl of soup. This will calm the baby and he or she will usually stop for a deep breath; this is your chance to amuse. Babies respond better when you talk in a voice that is a little higher pitched than its normal register. Be creative. A lot of everyday objects and situations can become a source of entertainment for a baby. For more detailed ideas listed in a month by month guide, visit best kids activities
Make sure you play gently - babies are delicate creatures! Keep your eyes on the baby at all times (or make sure someone else in the room is watching). Avoid objects that are sharp. Avoid playing in areas where a baby could easily bump his/her head and furniture with sharp corners.Babies need their own space also. They like to be left alone with books to check it out. Watch your child, but also allow them to have time alone. Do not think you have to entertain them all the time!

Mania- what is it? "excitement manifested by mental and physical hyperactivity, disorganization of behavior, and elevation of mood" ... you know when you see it, feel it, participate in it ... live performances generate the heat ... not all of them ... but concert mania happens when artsts like the Beatles, Cream, Rolling Stone, Michael Jackson, U2, Metallica, and even Miley Cyrus take the stage ... let's talk about the kind of mania that makes us feel really good!
By having a ceremonial burial for your burdens, you can take a symbolic step toward getting rid of them. It may remind you that you can get through anything as long as you bury it and move on.
Ask all the mourners to arrive in their black clothes so the ceremony can begin promptly. Suggest they bring a change of clothing so they can leave in less mournful attire. Have everyone sit somewhere peaceful or somber so they can reflect on all the burdens in their lives. After a few minutes of quiet contemplation, give each person a pen and note cards. There should only be one burden per note card, and you should only use one side. When everyone has written their burdens, take them to the burial ground in a solemn procession and circle the grave.Light the candle. Explain that it symbolizes faith, trust, surrender, and hope. (This can apply in either a religious or more general sense.)
Begin with one of your burdens first, since you are the Mistress/Master of Ceremonies. Read it out loud to the group, light the edge of the paper with the candle, and let the ashes fall into the grave. When burning, say, "Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust. I relinquish my burden because I must." (Repeat the phrase together after each burden is read.) Then either pass the candle to the next mourner or hold the candle throughout the ceremony and instruct the next person to read theirs. Keep going around until all the burdens are gone. Cover the grave and give each mourner a note card that has the following inscription: "Goodbye burdens, I don't need you anymore, I am complete as I am. The longer I hold on to you, the harder it is to stand. I don't need a crutch, I can walk on my own. I don't need burdens in my life, so just leave me alone." Join hands with one another. "So, hand in hand we walk away and turn our backs to your grave. We're free from all our burdens now; we are not your slaves. No more burden, anxiety, or guilt. Finally we are free. There's nothing weighing me down now. I'm happy just being me!" Lead your procession away from the grave and change from your mourning clothes to your happier attire. Go on in life without these burdens and be happy.
Dig the grave site before the other mourners arrive. It doesn't need to be big, but make it somewhere and of an appropriate size that animals will not go back and dig through it later. Write burdens that are intangible things - not PEOPLE that trouble you. Instead of a burden like, "The kids won't behave and listen to me," internalize it and write "I am out of patience and can't make my own children listen." This may seem more depressing, but the point is that when things are going wrong, we start blaming ourselves and make it worse. Once we recognize (and write) that it is our fault, we can burn away that thought and deal with what we can actually do about the problem.
Be careful with fire. Make sure the papers are the only thing that will burn. Remove any nearby weeds and water any plants in the area before the ceremony. Remove anything that may catch fire, then replace it later. When burning the papers, drop them into the grave before the fire gets to your fingers. Don't worry if it isn't completely burned - it's all symbolic anyway.

I got this tag from Bonz at Little Zoie's Steps. She hand me this tag for quiet some time now, but I only found out today as I visiting her 2 blogs. Bonz is a great friend of mine over the blogosphere. She blog often on, she missed some blogging due to her real job and taking care of little zoie at the same time. Miss her so much . Hope to see her again here soon.
It takes more than caring
To be a real friend;
The nature of friendship;
Requires a blend
Of warmest compassion
And love deep and true
To reach and to comfort
The way that you do.
Because I can see
That your kind of friendship
Is priceless to me.
Thank you Bonz for passing me this tag. And yes, I still remember you and you are still my friend eventhough you don't blog that often anymore. Just know that I miss you.
Have you ever said something to someone that made them hate you? Find out how to earn the friendship back and gain their respect!
Realize that you have done something wrong to make the person fall out with you. The first stage is to accept that you are in the wrong and to figure out what you did to upset or offend the person. Talk to the person and tell them that you understand what you have done wrong to them, you are really sorry for doing it and you really want to be friends again. Understand that they may not want to be friends again straight away. Think about what you are going to say before you say it. An insincere or vague apology is often worse than no apology at all.
Give them some time to mull over your apology and come to terms with what you have said. A few days later, try again. Ask the person if you can be friends, or at least talk again, and ask them to give you a chance. It is going to take a long time to earn their trust and friendship back and if you are really determined, you have to work at it. If they still say no, give them space and don't pester them. Move on and find someone else to be friends with. Give your friend a 'Sorry' card or a gift, such as chocolate. This could help your friend realize you are sorry, or it could make them think you are trying to buy their friendship. You should only do this if you know your friend well and know they would react well to this. Understand that if they agree to give you a chance, be a really great friend to them. Don't upset them or offend them, be nice to them (but don't over-do it), try your best to be a good friend. Don't expect them to confide in you straight away, and realize that it will take time for it to get back to normal.
Don't scare them when you apologize because that might make it worse. Talk to an adult if you are scared or concerned.. If your friend doesn't respond to your apology, then leave them alone for a while to think things through. Don't continuously pester your friend.
Don't pester your friend, as they could feel worse about you. If you become friends again, do not do the thing that made you fall out again. You will only get one more chance in most cases, so don't ruin it!
t is not easy to deal with or cope with a controlling person. And it is, especially, not easy to cope with it being someone that you care about. Nevertheless, a person should not be completely blinded by love. No one deserves or wants to be controlled. If they do, they may have issues that they need to deal with. In life you'll come across quite a few controlling people. However, try hard not to let that stop you from carrying on and just being yourself. Let people see you for who you are on the inside, rather than deciding based on what is shown on the outside. Maybe this article will help others to cope with controlling people. There are a lot of them out there. And although nobody has all the answers on how to deal with them, some people have managed to cope with the ones that they have run across.
Recognize that you are dealing with a controlling person in order to combat his or her position because they want to be able to take control of you.Stand firm on the fact that you are not going to be controlled. Work together. In any relationship or marriage, cooperation is vitally important. That does not mean that either person is lord and master, nor should either of you want to be. It doesn't help in building a strong relationship. Point out to the controlling person that their ways are stressing you out or making you feel uncomfortable. Let them know that you don't need another parent, that you have parents already. Reassert the fact that you are not a child, and that being individual and responsible for one's own decisions is what adulthood is all about. Be strong so their problem doesn't become yours. Realize that you are not the one with the problem, you are making an effort to communicate your feelings in the hopes of facilitating a response in your favor. Do the things that you enjoy even if the controlling person you care for is not supportive as you do them. (Withdrawing their support is a way to discourage you from doing things without him or her, reinforcing the sense that you need this person in order to have an enjoyable time, rather than the healthier sense of just wanting to share things with him or her).
Spend as much time as you can away from controlling people, for you'll need that break. If you have made plans, don't let someone else cause you to break them. Pat yourself on the back by letting a controlling person know about the good decisions that you make for yourself. Use tried and true responses when you feel your loved one is attempting to control you. The old term "oh really" works well when someone else is trying to control the conversation. It beats stressing out. If that one doesn't work, try the old "whatever" phrase, smile, and leave the room. Leaving the room gets a controlling person every time, as they like to keep things going.
Remember that in conflicted conversations, the controlling person will likely become very manipulative and turn things around to the conflict being your fault and will try to gain your sympathy by crying or changing the subject to something entirely different from the subject at hand. Try to stay focused and tell them to stay on the subject at hand. If he or she persists, say that you will return to the new discussion at a later time, and refocus them on the immediate problem. If that doesn't work, end the conversation immediately. As stated in the previous step, controlling people often try to escalate or prolong conflicts because it seems to have the effect of wearing you down so that they get their way in the end. It's better to end the conflict abruptly, because this is one you will not win.
Don't let someone else tell you how to manage or spend your own money, unless you have hired someone to manage it. In a marriage, both partners should be deciding equally how money is allocated, and this is always negotiable.Don't let someone else live your life for you, manage it yourself. Don't allow anyone to talk down to you, for it is degrading and a form of mind control.
Leave your mate a simple note on your whereabouts, but don't act like you have to punch in on a time clock. Your obligation is to be considerate and responsible so that your loved one doesn't worry needlessly, but you are an adult and should be able to come and go as you please within reasonable limits. Stay focused on positive things, for it will help you cope. Do remember that it is within your power to set the boundaries on your relationship. If you set a tone that allows another to control you, it can be very difficult to get a partner who has been accustomed to getting his or her way with you to understand that you now wish to make your own decisions. If you set a healthy, autonomous tone in the beginning, your relationship with this person will go much smoother.
Not everyone can cope with certain types of people. So use your own judgment on the course of action that you should take. Controlling and/or manipulative relationships can be managed sometimes; however, if you're not successful in resisting control, or if the individual is extremely strong-willed and persistent, these relationships can be very destructive to your other relationships with family and friends.

Lung cancer kills more people annually than breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer, melanoma, and kidney cancer combined! The 5-year survival rate for lung cancer is only 15 percent. Sixty percent of lung cancer cases are now diagnosed as nonsmokers or former smokers. Two-thirds of nonsmokers diagnosed with lung cancer are women.

Okay, listen... I log in late today because I am not feeling well. This nasty cold got my butt! Well two things happened that I am not happy about. First..one of my blogs my PR of 3 went down to zero, don't know the reason but it did. Second thing was, my post at Social Spark got rejected again. They said that' my post is full of grammatical error. I have corrected it two times in a row and of course they send it back the third time saying...it's not qualified for resubmit. First of all, they have been doing this to me since last year. They rejected ten post ..oh no... I think it's eleven posts I had submitted for the same reason ( too many grammatical error ). I didn't have any problem on any pass posts that I had submitted and got paid for it too.
I don't know what I am doing wrong. No matter what grammar error fixing I do,It will be still rejected. I am not sure if anyone is experiencing the same thing as I do. Seem like they want you to write about the opps but they don't want you to get paid for it. So every time I have some opps that are qualified for me to post at SS, feels like I don't have the eagerness to do the task. Because, I am afraid that it will get rejected again. EWAN!!!

It's spring but still snowing in some places here in WA State. And the weather here in seattle is not very good. Last night, it rain like crazy. Was gloomy this morning and it was hailing, now the sun is up. What is going on!!!! of course it doesn't not help me for I am feeling under the weather still. My sinus is killing me, same time as my allergy is acting up. I feel miserable, cannot breath, sinus is burning. Took some medication, it help for a while. It look warm outside, but I don't know about that! Have not gone outside yet. The wind is kind of whipping. At least the sun is out.
I started watching ER the TV series when I first got here(US) which is 94. I watched every episode of it until I started working the night shift. I lost track of it, but my sister in-law taped every episode I had missed.
Last night, the last ER episode was shown. All the cast that ER came back last night. I always love ER, it was an amazing TV series,intense and now it's over. The last episode have a really nice ending. Hope every ER fan got to watched it last night.
Are you a single parent who is tired of hiring babysitter after babysitter and never getting to spend time with your little angel? Always feeling burnt out? Never feel like you are going to catch up?
Write down a list of all of your commitments and responsibilities and analyse it. The big commitments are easy to identify: working, volunteering, appointments, and activities. Don't forget to put the day to day stuff like laundry, dishes, and shopping on your list as well. Analize your list of commitments. Is there anything on that list that you can resign from, delegate to someone else, or hire help with? Are there things you can rearrange or group together to save time doing or getting to? Make the necessary changes to your schedule.
Buy a clean new calendar. Any calendar with space to write down what needs to get done will work. Weekly calendars work best.On your new calendar, start with writing your work schedule on it and then filling in the commitments that you have decided to keep. Color coding helps to identify the different types of commitments you have. Hire or set up someone to be the primary caregiver (daycare, grandmother, friend or relative) when you are away and set the pay rate in advance. Target obtaining services for the time that you need someone on a regular basis to watch your child, usually during your work hours. If money is tight and you have to pay for someone to watch your child, target using a regular service only for your work hours and then promptly pick up your child after work. Hire an occasional sitter for special occasions. Try to line up about 3-5 people that you can call to watch the little one in different situations that may come up..and they will. Do something fun with with your child every week. It does not have to be expensive, but try to vary the activities instead of doing the same thing every week. It will give you both something to look forward to and will relieve stress.
Always plan a month or two ahead, if possible. If you don't have childcare planned well in advance it will be much more difficult to find someone to watch the baby. Ask your boss/supervisor if you may be able to bring your child to work once in a while. Ask for a schedule change, if that would help. Spend undivided time with your child every day. If the child, especially younger children and babies becomes to used to another person, instead of their parent, they could become more attached to the other caretaker. Make sure your child is happy, even if you have had a bad day and are tired. You will enjoy your rest even more once you know your child is happy. Your children's smile is well worth what you are going through right now.
Color code your calendar with doctor's visits, work days, holidays, days off, etc. Always make sure that baby gets your undivided attention and affection for at least 1 hour a day.Hire or accept offers for help. It is amazing how much of a difference having an extra set of hands around for even an hour makes. Think about hiring a responsible neighborhood teenager to play or entertain your child while you get caught up on household chores. Always thank the people who do help you. Helping you is something they don't have to do. Be mindful that their help might not be the way you may do something, but help getting a job done is much better than having do everything yourself.
Choose your battles and don't waste time on the ones that you can't win or get you to where you want to be. Same goes for friends, family, and obligations.Keep items that you need to drop off in your car, a box in the trunk or passenger seat works great so they don't get lost. Combine trips to drop off items with your regular errands to save time and gas. Make and freeze meals in advance. Not only is this a great time and money saver, eating home cooked meals is usually healthier for you and your child too!Get organized! Save time by knowing where everything is and having a place for everything so you don't waste time searching for items you need.
Don't stress out when you do this, just relax and plan your schedule. Things get easier when you write them down and you are actually honest with yourself that you may be over committed. If things don't work out, do be afraid to go back to what you were doing before. However, try giving any new plan at least a month or so to work. Just because the first day didn't go as planned doesn't mean the next day won't be fantastic.

Most people like the song "If I were a boy" by Beyonce. I am not a Beyonce fan so,am I don't like the song. Never heard of "lady Gag" before, she sang a song at American Idol last night. I used to like American Idol, I watched the earlier season, but American Idol gotten so out of place and American people usually voted for the contestant that they like instead of voting the one with the talent. Look what happend to Jennifer Hudson.. she got voted early, but she is bigger than the winner on amrican Idol that she was in.
ur best friend comes to you, crying hysterically, and tells you that her hubby left her for the circus. You stand there dumbstruck, mutter "oh", and feel like a horrible person for not knowing what to say to her to show your sympathy. Want to avoid being tongue-tied when faced with tragedy?
Look the other person in the eye. Appear sad. Tears aren't necessary unless the situation calls for it, but don't grin or laugh! That will only make you seem insensitive to the person's grievance. Assume a neutral facial expression and let the corners of your mouth drop down. Say, as sincerely as possible, "I'm sorry to hear that." Try to make the person know that you are truly sorry and stay with them for as long as possible, helping them in and out of situations.
Express your feelings as best as you can, but don't talk the other person to death. The best way to show sympathy is to listen attentively while the other person talks.Don't overreact!! Example: If the other person tells you that they failed their math test, don't cry hysterically and fall to the floor screaming "Oh my god!!!"
Every time I blog hop.. I'd noticed that every blog I hopped into have their own badge. I was wondering my self how can I make my own badge? I am sure creating badge isn't that easy. Badges are kind of cute and I would like to make one for my blog. The problem is I don't know anything about making blog badge.
If any body know how to create blog badge, could you please let me know. I am willing to pay something in return. Leave me a message on my message box. I appreciate it.

Can't get other family members to pitch in on household chores? Positive reinforcement and frequent communication can work toward getting a cleaner house.
1. Make a list of all the tasks that need to get done. No task is too small.
2. Put it somewhere visible, carry on doing stuff and make sure you tick off what you manage to do.
3. Ask your family members to each take on one task once in a while. If they do help, thank them. For children, give them a big hug. You may also want to provide a treat. Make it fun, and it will get done!
* With list in hand, it is far easier to make people compromise to help around the house. Peer pressure is a valuable tool. There is bound to be somebody that is more helpful, making the others look bad and possibly making them more willing to cooperate.
* With some people nothing will do. Don't be afraid to show your displeasure, but realize that perhaps there are other issues at play.
