We just back from my daughter Avory first basketball scrimmage an hour and half ago. The game was fun, both team had fun playing their fist game. Its as so nerve rocking watching my daughter dribble the ball and passing it to her team mate. They played for an hour and half,the girl (both team) had a taste of their first game. The kids had so much fun. I will be posting some video and photos tomorrow.

While I was logging into my other Purposesblog just few minutes ago. A warning message came that my blog has been blocked, as I checked what was the cause of this....it say that my blog has been hacked by someone.

Just chilling on the couch while my daughter was playing game online, she love playing toon town game on the Internet, while my son was on his bedroom watching his show on TV. While I am just sitting and watching Akeela and the spelling bee on TV and tinkering on a lap top at the same. It is Saturday so figured they can stay up late tonight.

So, taking a picture while my daughter was playing online was very tempting so I did. She looked so serious playing game. So, here it is, sharing with all of you.

This is a sponsored guest post written by Ali Kendall on behalf of Airfare Secrets. Post powered by Sponzai.

Just wanted to send a quick "shout-out" across the Pacific to my friend Ali in sunny Honolulu, Hawaii!

Ali runs the airfare-now.com website with all kinds of tips, coupons, strategies, etc. for findng holiday airfare deals. Now airfare comparison travel sites have come a long way in the past few years but there are still literally thousands of them to choose from. So here's a big aloha and mahalo to Ali for keeping it simple on a pretty nifty little travel website!


Wednesday is my Daughter's basketball practice usually. Tonight I went to watch the whole practice. There are ten in a team, she is the shortest of course, but dang she can trow and move like a kangaroo lol. They are preparing for a game November the 30th. Vale Elementary school vs Sunny sloop elementary. I hope my daughter's team will win, I can only cross my finger. BTW, here are some photos I took during the practice. It is kind of far, my daughter was the one on white short as u can see from the second and last pictures.

Saving lives is easier than ever; you don't have to rescue someone who's fallen through ice, do CPR, or push someone out of the way of a moving bus. Do you know that you can save someone live just by simply collecting potentially life-saving stem cells found naturally in menstrual blood? C'elle is a service provides women with the unique opportunity to collect and preserve vital stem cells that can be harvested from the body's menstrual fluid during the menstrual cycle.

These menstrual stem cells are unique because they have many properties and characteristics similar to both bone marrow and embryonic stem cells; they multiply rapidly and can differentiate into many other types of stem cells such as neural, cardiac, bone, fat, cartilage and possibly others; demonstrating great promise for future use in clinical regenerative medical therapies. Preliminary research suggests that in addition to potential use by the donor, these stem cells may possibly be used as well to benefit other family members who are genetically related to the donor, such as perhaps a parent, sibling or child.

C’elle is the first available service that enables women to collect and preserve stem cells from their menstrual flow. This process is painless, easy and can be done right at home. And even though C’elle is the first service of its kind, they are not new to the stem cell arena. C’elle was developed by researchers at Cryo-Cell International, a pioneer in non-controversial stem cell research and preservation. Since 1992, Cryo-Cell has helped nearly 185,000 families to preserve their babies’ umbilical cord blood. Stem cells from umbilical cord blood are known to treat more than 75 diseases, including leukemia, anemia and lymphoma.

Calling all women, give a special give this season , preserve your vital stem cells that can be harvested from your body's menstrual fluid during the menstrual cycle and save someone live, it is the best gift you can give. To find out more about C'elle and to learn about the FAQs visit celle.com

Arranging a Thanksgiving table needn't be an overwhelming project. With a little bit of time and imagination, plus faith in elegant simplicity, you'll have a superb dinner table set-up without fuss.

Select a plain colored tablecloth. White is an excellent color as it will set off anything you choose to add to the table but the choice is yours. Avoid patterns or designs, as these overwhelm the table too quickly. Choose a color theme. Usual colors reflect fall - oranges, yellows, golds, reds and browns. Orange is also a reflection of pumpkins, squash and other signs of harvest bounty. Buy serviettes (napkins) that reflect the chosen theme - there are also various fall designs pre-printed on serviettes that might be suitable for your theme.Find a Cornucopia basket. This can be placed on the table to represent the bounty of harvest. You can leave it empty, or fill it with fruits such as red apples and yellow pears. Get crafty! Make fall colored paper items to provide color to the table:

Leaves - Choose a variety of paper that reflects realistic leaf colors and fits your chosen color theme, such as reds and oranges. Cut the papers into simple leaf designs (draw a template on light card that you can follow with the scissors or craft cutter). Make as many paper leaves as you feel you have time for. You might wish to turn some into arrangements and use some loose, so keep this in mind when making them. Make small bouquet arrangements with some of the leaves. Place these around the base of a glass candle holder and insert an orange/gold etc. candle in the top of the holder. Strew a few of the single leaves around the table in an artistic fashion. Ensure that color mixes are matching and in theme. Napkin rings and tags - Use additional pieces of paper to make napkin rings and name tags. Cut thin strips of paper and adjust these strips to fit around your folded cloth napkins. Glue or tape in place. Vary the colors if you have a good eye for matching designs. Make name tags from the same colors of paper. Use a nice matching color of dark mustard type paper to stamp the letters on, or save time and use a Gel pen or similar to simply write the names. Placemats - Place strips of colored paper diagonally overlapping each other to make diamonds that fit the rectangular shape of a placemat. You can also try round shapes if preferred, or be really daring and try shapes such as pumpkins, turkeys or Cornucopias. Glue in place.

Use nature for inspiration. Adding natural elements to the table underlines the harvest theme. Purchase miniature squash to decorate the table. These come already packaged with their own incredible charm and colors, so there really is no need to do anything else with them. Look for some that still have wispy tendrils, as these add a delicate finishing touch. If you have access to clean fall leaves, you might like to add these to the table, or even create a display using leaves, pine cones and twigs. Use fruit, such as apples and pears, in small displays. Add a display of fresh flowers in hues of yellow, oranges or muted reds. Use unshelled pecan nuts as another symbol of harvest time. Either place them strategically loose on the table, or add to a bowl, the Cornucopia basket or some other arrangement. If you have a small toy squirrel, place it next to the pecan nuts. Set the rest of the table as you would always for a dinner party. Use your best dinnerware and flatware and if you haven't purchased specially themed Thanksgiving serviettes, use plain-colored cloth ones that match the theme. Add fine quality glassware and the set the name tag in place.

Ensure that your plates and flatware are in good condition, clean and ready for fast addition. This might seem an obvious thing to add but finding dishes and flatware that didn't come up as clean and shiny as they should have from the dishwasher is an unnecessary last-minute source of frustration. Check ahead! Dollar stores often have great paper turkey decorations that can be added tastefully to the table display. Tape lucky numbers under the saucers. When there is a gap in conversation, call out lucky numbers and award fall-themed prizes. Make sure that every child wins a prize. Don't forget to peel off the numbers before washing.

Don't leave guests unattended at the front door on arrival. Arrange for somebody in the house to be the meeter and greeter. It also helps chief cook a lot if somebody else assumes the drinks and nibbles responsibilities. If kids help with the craft projects, supervise cutting elements. Never leave paper near a candle. The paper objects must be at the base of the candle holder and nowhere near the flame.

Rambutan and Lansones are my most favorite tropical fruit. Rambutan fruit has a thick skin that is covered with fine, short hairs. It's a small fruit, not bigger than the size of a hen's egg. Inside, you will find a small seed covered with half transparent flesh. The color of rambutan is red or yellow. The fruit has a soft sweet taste. The name "rambutan" comes from the Malay world "rambut", which means 'hair'. There is a great demand for this fruit. You usually find this kind of fruit in the islands of Mindanao, Panay, southern Luzon (region Batangas) and Mindoro.

Lansones is very sweet fruit, was first discovered in Malaysia. This fruit is usually very expensive.

Buying a house is the most expensive purchase you will probably ever make and there are many considerations you have to think about before you actually buy it. Think towards the future. Everything should be carefully thought out when determining what your "ideal house" will be.

You might want to check Real Property Management services single family homes, condos, apartment buildings, store fronts, and Homeowner associations. For more information visit the link provided above.

The quality of being elusive is possibly elusive in and of itself but with a little practice you might be able to perfect it.

1. Always leave an air of mystery about who you are. Don't tell everyone everything about yourself; leave plenty of things for them to guess but don't provide confirmation of their guesses.
2. Don't answer all the time. When the door knocks, don't answer it. If you live with other people, tell them to answer it and let them know that you're "not at home". Don't answer the phone; make people leave messages which you can choose to answer or not in your own time. Don't tell people where you live - let them guess but again, don't confirm it.
3. Never commit to anything unless you absolutely have to. Instead, leave a sense of possibility at your involvement but it's entirely up to you whether or not you'll get involved. Turn up to events or occasions sometimes but not other times; but never directly answer invites or requests. Say things like: "Maybe I'll come, I just know yet.", "Perhaps I could make it but there is not certainty.", "If I'm in town I'll try to come." and leave it at those vague statements.
4. Never reveal your favorite brands, scent, TV shows, etc. Again, leave people guessing. If they ask, hedge your responses with vague comments such as, "It's always changing, so I don't really know right now.", "Well, I used to like a certain brand but it went out of production, so now I'm still looking for a replacement as good as it was."
5. Avoid participating in school or community projects on a regular basis. Turn up now and then to offer occasional help when people least expect it but most need it. This will develop a pattern of them understanding that you're worth knowing and having around but that it can never be certain when you will be.
6. Have a wide circle of friends+. See different friends all the time and don't make really close friendships unless you know that you can trust them to respect your need for being elusive. If there is any sign that they find you unpredictable in a negative way, make it clear to them that you never promised to be a reliable sidekick.

Yes you can enjoy your own dinner party! The 3 keys to hosting a stress-free dinner party are to keep it simple, do as many chores as you can ahead of the big day, and prepare as many dishes as you can ahead of your guests' arrival.

Keep it simple: Limit the guest list to eight people, six is even better. Choose a neutral table setting that lets your colorful centerpiece flowers pop. Serve no more than three courses. Feature only one "fancy" dish. Plan a mostly make ahead menu with few items that need last minute kitchen time. Do ahead. Two weeks in advance, invite your guests and choose a menu with mostly make-ahead dishes. A few days ahead, shop for the non-perishables and clean house. The day ahead, shop for the perishables and set the dinner table and do a last minute clean of the bathroom and living room. Prepare your make ahead recipes the day before or morning of your dinner party.

Remember that your guests are the real stars of the evening, not your food. The food is only your pleasant excuse for getting together, so don't worry about putting on a gourmet restaurant spread. Never serve a dish you haven't made before. This way you avoid disasters like apologizing for a recipe that doesn't taste the way you hoped it would. You are part of the company and your guests expect to talk with you. Keeping it simple means you get to spend time with your guests instead of in the kitchen. Don't get nervous about choosing wine. If you're not sure what to serve, just go to your local wine store and ask for something simple and inexpensive that most people are likely to enjoy. Remember, people love to give advice, and wine store staff are no different! Check the ingredient list for every recipe against your pantry contents. Make sure you already have the item on hand or add it to your shopping list. This has the added bonus of preventing you from buying duplicates! In your last minute schedule be sure to include time for you to get dressed, set out the appetizers, put on the dinner music and - yes - sit down for a few minutes before your guests arrive. Wow! What a stress-free way to start enjoying your own dinner party. Set the table the night before (at a minimum). Set out all the serving dishes and place in each a sticky note with what it is that goes there. Don't forget to get out the serving pieces. You don't want to be looking for the cake server, salad tongs, or gravy ladle at the last minute. This also gives you plenty of time to wash any dust/fingerprints from your china or glassware. And, if you've used most of the china from a visible china cabinet, you can take this time to put some decorative items in there or reconfigure what's left.

It's traditional to send holiday cards to friends and family in December. And in recent years, businesses have realized that it's also a great way to connect with clients and create a friendly atmosphere for employees. Ordering, writing, addressing and sending all of those cards while also dealing with holiday gifts, decorating, parties and guests can be exhausting! This year, consider sending Thanksgiving cards instead!

Create a mailing list including all of the family members, friends and/or business associates and employees to whom you want to send a Thanksgiving card. Create a Thanksgiving message to convey a personal touch. You may wish to have one sentiment for friends and neighbors, one for family, one for clients and one for employees. Shop online for bulk Thanksgiving cards. If you're sending Thanksgiving cards in lieu of December holiday cards, it would be too expensive to buy them one by one at the local card shop or discount store. Make sure the site can print your sentiment on the cards.

See if they can print a return address as well. It will save you time and cramped hands! Make sure the order will be delivered well before Thanksgiving to allow for signing, addressing and mailing the cards. Write a newsletter for family and friends if you typically would send one in December. Be sure to include a section about why you are grateful for dear friends and family members. Business owners, include a note or comment telling clients or employees why you are grateful for them. Include a photo for family and friends. Set up a website to allow recipients to add their blessings and gratitude to create a virtual Thanksgiving community. Businesses could do this as well, and allow customers to post personal or business points of gratitude. Make sure everyone you're sending it to celebrates Thanksgiving. Customers in other countries might not understand the purpose of the the holiday or the card.

Everyone feels empty sometimes, but if you feel a constant sense of being empty, verging on chronic despair, you might need to get some help!

1. Identify any Triggers. When and where does it come up? Is a particular situation or person triggering the feeling? Make a mental note of it whenever it comes up. From there, you can make changes to suit your needs.
2. Identify the Feeling. Try using some holistic or Eastern techniques to identify where the feeling settles. Where in your body do you feel the emptiness? Close your eyes and think of the worst time you have felt this. Where do you feel emptiness? Learn about the 7 chakras and learn about what the emptiness could be related to in regard to its location. Also, if you had to give the feeling a colour or shape, what would it be? What can you interpret from this shape? Does it give you any insight as to how to fix it?
3. Tell Someone. Sometimes just talking about your feelings can make them go away or decrease. Talk to someone who cares and understands you, or at least, whom you trust; it can make a big difference!
4. Go Outside. Going outside in nature can help most people feel better. Perhaps you just need a time out? Many people spend too much time with technology and not enough time outside.
5. Help Someone Else. Get out of your own head. Cycling on the same depressing thoughts can make you feel insignificant. But you can prove your own worth by simply getting up, and going to find someone else who needs your help, offering it, and seeing how that person was helped. Churches, mission groups, and community organizations often get together with a plan to help needy citizens in your town. Go to them, volunteer. You will be amazed by how much your help means to someone who has fewer advantages than you. Helping others helps twice: the person who receives the help is grateful and blessed by it, and the person who helps feels accomplished and blessed. It is a privilege to serve others, and if you can cultivate that feeling of gratitude in your own heart, there is little that will make your heart fill and overflow quite like that feeling.
6. Get Help. It's possible that you have depression if you constantly feel empty. Asking for help doesn't mean you're crazy. Everyone goes through highs and lows, and the sooner you get help, the sooner you can rise above it and become a better person, with more wisdom and energy! Counseling, medications, and natural therapies are all valid forms of intervention - seek help and try everything you can.

Fill your life with love and laughter. Gather your family around you, if you have a good and nurturing family environment. If not, avoid that dysfunctional place and instead seek friends who are supportive and positive. Get involved in something. Having no passions, no interests, and nothing occupying your time is depressing and can lead to an endless cycle of gnawing self-doubt, inadequacy, and melancholy. Even though some moody, gloomy celebrities seem romantic and cool, for most people, it's not romantic at all. It's depressing. Being enigmatic is hard work that brings little reward. Try football, badminton, or chess; try photography, painting, or boxing. Play some video games, especially those you can play with others. Occupy your time, start having positive experiences - it is these you will begin to recall, rather than all the lonely, melancholy moments of before.

Don't try to mask serious clinical depression with flurries of activity or endless visitors. Talk out your feelings with trusted family or friends, and if you don't feel better soon, seek professional help to discover whether you might be suffering from a medical condition that is easily treated. Many people who start taking anti-depressant medications feel that heavy cloud of despair lifting within days. It does not alter your personality - it restores it.

The width strains against the failing hate.

The U.S. sets aside November 11th to honor all veterans who served in all military branches since WW I. That war ended on June 28, 1919, but fighting between the Allies and Germany had ended with an armistice months earlier. Armistice Day, celebrated as November 11, was set aside as a national holiday to celebrate the wars end in 1926. On June 1, 1954, the name was changed to Veterans Day to honor all U.S. veterans. In 1968, Veterans Day was celebrated on the fourth Monday in October however, since November 11 was a date of historic significance, Congress returned the holiday to its traditional date, November 11th.

Hang a flag. Hang the American flag to show your patriotism. Many people will remember veterans who served in war by seeing the flag swaying in the breeze. Thank A Veteran. Remember that they fought for your freedom and are the reason you are here today. Thank them for serving the country. Publish Work.You may want to submit a letter to the editor, or even write a poem and submit it to a contest about why you love your country, and what freedom means to you. Have A Veterans' Day Feast. You could do it with your own family, or you could invite the whole community with all the veterans. Take a Moment to Think About What Veterans Have Done It can be five minutes or a half an hour. Just take a moment to appreciate what veterans have done for us in all of the wars our country has had.

While there is no cure and no medications to cure the common cold, there are simple steps that can help to ease the symptoms.

1. If you can, try cutting out some "extras" from your schedule, especially if they are physically taxing. While its generally not a good thing to take a lot of time off from work or school, if you aren't feeling productive, its probably best to stay home and relax. Even though, if symptoms are above the neck only, a little exercise can get your metabolism and immune system working, and the cardio can clear your nose.
2. Take lots of vitamins. Vitamin C is excellent at boosting the immune system. (However, if you just take vitamin pills, your body cannot use them without some other trace elements. Instead of getting vitamin C from pills, try oranges or lemons.)
3. As soon as noticing the onset of cold symptoms (usually starting with a sore throat and/or runny nose) take an antihistamine to minimize mucus flow, sneezing, and coughing which can cause the virus to spread within the body much more quickly, initially overwhelming the immune system response, prolonging the sickness and its severity. Slowing down the initial spread of the virus, will give the body more time to develop resistance and fight off the intrusion, likely reducing the time of sickness and its severity.
4. When your symptoms are at their worst, try an over-the-counter cold remedy eg. Cold-Eeze or Emergen-C. If the symptoms are really bad, try an OTC medicine for a couple of days.
5. Make sure you are taking care of yourself: eating well, drinking plenty of fluids (especially water), and sleeping enough. Again, avoid really physically taxing activities!
6. If you have to go to school/work or be around people, make sure you are doing your part to help keep them from catching the cold. Avoid close contact and sharing of utensils, and definitely wash your hands after sneezing/coughing/blowing your nose.
7. If you still aren't feeling well in week, you develop a fever, or your symptoms worsen, consider seeing a doctor. You may have something worse than a cold.

Many colds can trigger or be a part of an infection in your sinuses. Try to drain your sinuses in the shower using warm salty water. This loosens and gets rid of phlegm inside your head. It also flushes out pollens. ( try a saline nasal spray , bought at your local drug store.) When taking a shower, inhale the steam. It may help loosen the mucus and lessen congestion. Inhale Menthol. Eat warm soups and drink warm tea. They may also help with congestion. Take a few days off from the gym or exercising when you are ill. Start exercising regularly again a few days after you are completely symptom-free. In the meantime, you can passively stretch or perhaps lift light weights, but avoid exercise that will exhaust you. Eat warm, liquidy foods such as chicken noodle soup. If most symptoms begin to be replaced with a cough, then you are probably coming to the end of the cold. Go to bed early. Between seven and eight hours of sleep are recommended for healthy adults. If you are ill, you should get a little more than that.

Don't take antibiotics for a cold. A cold is a virus, antibiotics will be useless. Check with your medical provider for guidance. Not everyone can use OTC medications, and some cold remedies may affect the immune system. Some vitamins are fat soluble, so it is possible to overdose on them. Again, check with your medical provider for recommendations.

Caring for combination skin needn't be a chore. Adopt a routine and follow it through.

1. A simple morning skincare routine should include a cleanser, toner and moisturizer. This is to be done first thing in the morning and doesn't require a great effort. If you have specific skin complaints e.g. blemishes you may add products to combat these as required. After this you may then put on your make up.
2. In the evening before bed it is important you remove your make up before following a skincare routine. This will provide your skincare products with a clean face with which to work.
3. Follow your skincare routine as before, again adding products as required.
4. Repeat daily.

Select your skincare products carefully. Many are designed specifically for combination skin and it is worth reading reviews and trying samples before committing yourself. Sales assistants working at beauty counters in department stores can advise you which products will work best for your skin type, they can also confirm your skin type if you are in doubt.Once you have adopted a skincare routine, stick to it. Many products need time and may not work straight away. If you react to anything discontinue use immediately and seek advise. Certain brands design make up with a specific skin type in mind so take care to select products for your type.

Do not take advice from sales assistants alone, try products and read reviews.
Always be sure to apply SPECIFIC care to your T-Zone(forehead, nose, chin) and Cheeks. That's where (1) Oil builds up and (2) It's probably the most dry

Is clutter driving you crazy? An organized lifestyle can mean efficiency in your day and a more relaxing time while at home. Use the following tips to get some organization in your home.

Begin by making a list of items needed in each area, keeping in mind that you want to have less to maintain in the future. Keep items closest to where they will be used. Store like items together.Work on one area of your living space at a time. Go area by area until your whole home is organized. Have three boxes or large bags labeled "KEEP", "DONATE", and "TRASH". As you pull each item off the shelves, from dusty corners, from under beds and couches, or wherever, put it in one of these boxes/bags. In general, if you haven't used an item in a year or more, it is probably safe to throw/give it away. Dispose of the "TRASH" box/bag immediately and give away your "DONATE" box/bag as soon as possible to a local charity like a church, Goodwill, or the Salvation Army. But allow enough time to prevent regrets, which may cause the need to repurchase an item. Assess your KEEP box/bag. You should ask yourself if these items belong in this section and how often you use each of them. If an item belongs elsewhere in your home, put it there. If you don't use an item frequently, consider how you can store it so it is out of the way of the items you use more often. Work throughout your living space weeding out all of the extra "stuff" and placing everything else where it belongs. Now that your possessions are organized, maintain this state by ensuring that items belonging in a particular area stay there. If you use something, put it back where you found it when you're finished. If you need to relocate an item to a cluttered area, re-assess why each item is there so you can make room for everything you need. Buy or re-use organizers to store items that would otherwise look cluttered if left out in the open.

Decorative containers can be stored beneath a bed, couch, chair, bench or table. Stack different containers to create a table. For important files (i.e. insurance documents, automobile information, receipts, instruction manuals), purchase a filing cabinet or look for one in a local garage sale. Designate a counter top as a "landing pad" for your keys, purse, cell phone, and other items to be put away at the end of the day. Keep one drawer in your desk for supplies such as pens, paper clips, and sticky notes so they are not roaming around the house. Always looking for a pen? Now you will always know where you can find one. Buy a planner. Write in designated times to maintain your newly organized space. Color-code your planner so you can easily pick out meeting times, due dates, and appointments. Use a planner to record your annual cleaning. Indoor cleaning in the winter. Outdoor cleaning in the summer. Allow for only one or two major projects for each month of the year. This gives an entire month to accomplish a project. As each year goes by, each area will become more efficient. Just by taking time away from an area, new thoughts will arise to utilize a space in a better way. By taking the time to plan, half the work is already done. If you continuously maintain your space, you will have less clutter building up.

When choosing which area of your living space to begin organizing, try starting with the area that you use the most, such as your study area, if you are a student, or the kitchen. A good way to store infrequently-used items is to invest in good quality organizers, such as CD holders, bookcases, and under-the-bed containers. If you have a birthday coming up or Christmas is around the corner, try asking relatives for gift certificates to the Container Store, Bed, Bath & Beyond, IKEA, Target, or Wal-Mart.American culture is avid about organizing. Therefore, you can usually find organizers that are trendy and fashionable, so you won't have to worry about hiding items away that you store. Find ways to reuse your existing organizers. For example, if you have a candle holder but no candles, you can use it to hold pencils instead. Use compressible Space Bag storage bags for storing seasonal clothing or bulky bedding then store the compressed bags under the bed or in the garage. You'll keep your seasonal clothing/bedding together and protected and you'll create more space at the same time.Space Bags do not save nearly as much space as they seem to on TV, especially since air eventually will leak back into the bag(particularly the travel bags that you roll to push the air out, these can fill back up with air in a matter of hours). This product really isn't worth the money or time put into it, plus when it's time remove the items you packed away they will have an unpleasant plastic odor to them.

Keep in mind fire hazards while you are organizing. Some safety hazards include overloading a wall outlet with extension cords, storing huge stacks of newspapers, or not putting away shoes and other articles that block your exit path in an emergency. Be careful when moving furniture. Lift with your legs, not your back, and ask a friend to help you.
