Responsible Gun Owners, Prevent Crime by Keeping Guns Secure

Guns are used all the time for various crimes. Although to be able to obtain a gun, proper licenses are required also. Now most criminals though, have stolen guns.

I personally do not own a gun. But at home where I grew up, my late father had several guns. He sold them to license gun owners so there are no guns in the house anymore. And I still remember when there was only 1 gun left, a Smith & Wesson Magnum .38 Revolver, my uncle was asking for it if he can have it, one of my cousins was asking for it too. But my Dad never gave it them, but this is where I saw the desire for many people to have a gun for it meant power to some people. And as we hear this over and over again, with great power comes great responsibility.

Preventing guns to get into the hands of criminals can be one way of doing that. Securing your guns well to prevent them from getting stolen, and one way to do that is with safe gun storage using gun safes. This should be a part of every responsible gun owner.

Philippine Flag Patch for Uniforms

When I was in the Philippines, many Taekwondo jins like sewing on their Dobok (Taekwondo uniform) a patch of the flag of the Philippines. Mainly not part of the Philippine pride, but had a psychological advantage knowing that the Philippine National Team was feared since they are really good. Have a Philippine Flag Patch on their uniform is like instilling fear in the opponent giving them a notion that you are comparable with the caliber of skills the national team has since most of the time they have the patch of the flag of the Philippines sewed on to their uniforms as they compete often internationally.

Today I am in the US, and I guess every Taekwondo jin (practitioner) from the Philippines will agree that it is really different here in the US compared to the Philippines. And some people know that, where the Philippine flag can do you good again doing the same psych war. LOL. Anyway, if you are looking for a Philippines Flag Patch , I found mine online.

Summer is Hot

It is hot. And many times once I get home, and work in my home office, I work with my shirt off. It’s so hot. Whenever there is this heat wave, in zoos, they place big blocks of ice and you can see even desert animals like staying beside the ice and licking it. Some people shed off the hair of other animals to cool them down using Shed Ender. Usually in the belly area that is also in the shade of the sun and not under direct sunlight in most animals.

Missing Fighting

I have never really fought a person face-to-face in real life. But I have joined several Taekwondo competitions already. And after watching this taekwondo video, it kind of pumps me up to start training again.

Maybe even just a punching bag, some boxing gloves will be good enough to get started again. It would be really great if there was a punching bag at work and in-between breaks, I can get to punch and kick the bag. But right now I am totally out of shape that I need to work on my cardio vascular endurance first and start running again.

Flatland Freestyle on a 26″ Racer/Touring/Road bike.

I used to compete in BMX races and does BMX flatland freestyle and ramp riding for fun. The sport has evolved to much when I have started in 1989 but after all those years, I have never seen such graceful flatland freestyle, dabless, flawless, flatland freestyle tricks NOT on a 20″ wheel BMX/Freestyle bike. But on a 26″ Road bike. Although I watched the movie Quicksilver starring Kevin Bacon, the freestyle there on road racing bikes were still done by the hard core flatland BMX freestyles of that day like R.L. Osborne, Martin Aparijo and Eddie Fiola. I am not sure if Dennis McCoy was in Quicksilver but there was definitely someone doing multiple boomerangs which look like Dennis McCoy’s signature moves of that day. Some bike spinning looked like Pat Romano.

But I recently found this video online, that is a flatland freestyle video, but on a racer/touring/road bike. Although there are a few obvious modifications like, there is no freewheel. It was a continuous peddaling gear, so unicycle type of balancing tricks were possible, handlebars were like modified road racing handlebars turned upward and I believe there were no brakes since it was not using a freewheel anyway and thus did not need any brake cable detangler like a gyro, oryg, spinmaster, spintech or rotor. There seemed to be small axle pegs as well. The freestyler is a female (which reminds me of Krys Dauchy).

You got to see this video. Her routine goes like this:

  • It starts out with just coasting in circles, then does a gymnastic pose with both hands on the seat and legs extended forward. Totally not a part of BMX flatland freestyle.
  • The does a surf and controls it quite well since she gracefully rides it out in a figure 8 path.
  • She then does a trick similar to a framestand. But it is a seat stand! Again gliding in a figure 8 path.
  • Then a boomerang.
  • Does a wheelie next, climbs over the bars and does a unicycle type of moneuver, does some variations then goes into spastic circles.
  • Then does a reverse wheelie with 1 footed variations. Reverse wheelie is the normal wheelie position but doing a rollback with it. Maybe we can call it a fakie wheelie?
  • Continues doing a rollback, then rollback surf/surf fakie?
  • Rolls out into a 180 rock walk and goes into a grip ride and rides in a figure 8 path again.
  • Then runs into an in-and-over type of technique going into a backride.
  • Then going into a no handed rolling (and peddaling) backyard.
  • Transitions into a reverse grip ride.
  • After that she does a backward rolling and pedalling backyard. You got to see it to understand it.
  • She just decides to stop running backward and balances, then run forward like an ordinary backyard, but pedalling and does it spastically.
  • She then goes over the bars in a pedal picker position but does a unicycle thing and does it spastically again.
  • Now from here, she just lets the bike fall on its wheels while she is still in front, balances, pedals making the bike run backward, and suddenly goes into a seat grinder position, and does spastic circles. A seat grider but she is not grinding the seat, and is actually balancing on the rear wheel. And she ends her routine there.

Crazy! She does it gracefully, never touched the ground, no sign of wobbling. And looks like ballet with the Vanessa Mae violin background music.

Problogger’s first impressions on

Problogger Darren Rose thinks degrades blog quality.Darren Rowse is an excellent blogger. And he has made a living out of blogging. He blogs for profit. His site is He even provides some consultancy on how to make profits out of blogging and is an authority in the field. But he does not believe in He has cited several websites as well that do not like the idea. And a general pattern I see is getting paid per post decreases the credibility of the post and will just pollute the blogosphere.

I Get Paid to Blog. And I believe it is the same in the real world from face-to-face product endorsments, radio, TV and print. An article in a magazine, an interview on the radio or TV, it is all about promoting yourself or promoting your service, or promoting your product. Many post against talk about approval and reviews, that is it not screened. But as for my post, I have had rejected postings and I needed to edit them to get them approved. They also talk about people giving reviews on a product or service without trying them. This is the responsibility of the blogger. I do not want to give reviews personally of something I haven’t tried. But I give my opinions on a product based on what they are offering. And many advertisers give free samples of their product or service for testing purposes.

Removing and Preventing Viruses and Spyware/Malware

Just because you know how to use the computer, sometimes all your relatives and friends ask the same questions over and over again. How to remove or prevent viruses and spywares. Since I used to teach at a computer school, sames questions used to arise and that is also when I started blogging. I used to give out a page on my students blog about anti-virus and anti-spyware but it is no longer updated. But since I still have several friends asking about them, there is a tutorial site that has a page about this on And it seems to have the proper links in there as well, so I suggest checking that site out as well.

3 SEO Life Stories…

He does SEO?

I attended a seminar on Internet Marketing by Adam Urbanski last July 20. It was a small group, maybe about 10 to 15 people only. And everyone was required to say a few stuff about themselves. I kept my self-description conservative and just said I know technical stuff in making websites, and I came to the class to learn more of the marketing side. How to market well online. Although I could say I have a fair knowledge of Internet marketing, but I was not there to say what I know, but I was there to learn other stuff I may not know yet. Even just a few small tips.

One participant, I can still remember how he introduced himself. He said he was also into Internet marketing, and SEO, I may not remember what he said word for word, but I do remember clearly one line he said, while he was addressing what he was saying to the speaker… he said “…You see, I do what you do too…” So he must know what he is saying.

Right after the seminar, I just did the same thing I did with the Sean Roach Internet Marketing seminar I attended. I SEO’d it. And it was generating traffic and a little more hits that translates to earnings of course for those that know how to make money out of traffic. It was not like an additional really big bucks, but it was still a little more to add to still give it some increase.

Just this afternoon, this participant that also does what Adam Urbanski does, calls me up since we exchanged cards and ask me about some other matters related to the course. And I mentioned that my other blog was ranking 1 for Adam Urbanski Internet Marketing as well other other keyphrases. And he asked how did I do it? Well for me, all I did was just the basics, I did no serious hard core competitive SEO yet, but since no one else was targeting it, it was easy to rank 1 right away. And an experienced SEO guy would have just laughed probably and find it funny I was targetting it. But now that I mentioned the story here. Maybe someone might be trying to beat me at number 1 for this keyphrase and I do not care. This was just for fun anyway. Maybe I will be more competitive if it was a paid SEO client. Uh oh, My SEO clients might have high expectations this time *LOL*. But this is what I have to say to my SEO clients, if you are not ranking number 1 for your general terms, do not worry, let’s target the tail and just keep in mind that our objective is to increase conversions. Not just get the number 1 spot on every term.

Remove Company Name

Every company name has a keyphrase tail to target. And this tail is still related usually to the company’s product or service. I targetted a keyphrase in this format: company name blog. It just took 2 days to get the number 1 spot. But the company talked to me and asked if I can remove the company name on my blog. And you know, these people are really nice guys and I have no intention in going to battle with them just over a simple search term. Actually I personally know how to over throw my own entry by the official company site and get the number 1 spot. But I guess it is also a matter of other legal issues that I cannot place the company name. Well ok, I took it out, although I still rank number 1 for it even if I took it out, Google should reindex soon and see the changes.

SEO Contest, SEO Contest, SEO Contest

I am getting tired of Isulong SEOph SEO Contest. Comparing it with Ambatchdotcom and Vogermilten that has $4k and $10k respectively with not even half of the people in the SERPs in Isulong SEOph that has already 800,000+ pages in the SERPs all battling for that number 1 spot with a prize less than $2k. I find it funny. But the reason why Isulong SEOph just has so many entries, is because of the SEOPhilippines community as well. The group just interacts so well with each other that everyone is having fun, sharing, talking about SEO, and website monetizations. We have seen several non-Filipinos in the list already because maybe also of the popularity, but predominantly, they are still all Filipinos. I did an IP change on one of my Isulong SEOph entries not only for a new class-C IP, but for a regional advantage as well. I think I am just going to mildly play around with Ambatchdotcom and consider to seriouly work on Vogermilten. But there is still a lot time for that. In this contest I joined, I have been in and out of page 1 with the highest rank i reached was 7, but I still get pushed back to page 2 or even page 3 sometimes. I once had a rank 3, but it just looked like Google glitch or someting, and only lasted a few hours when the other sites were missing. Oh well, let’s see how it goes. At least get into the final 7 sites, and hopefully I can ask for a vacation for the awarding if ever I do get in. Oh well, let’s see. I am a bit lazy compared to the other competitors. But maybe, actually hopefully I will get some second wind by mid-August.
