Happy Birthday Dawn
From Mommy,Uncle Bo, Rain and Jamie
You’re getting prettier – that much is clear
You look much more fabulus – than lastyear
You’re looking like your mother, but that’s ok
Because it’s your nineteenth birthday
Vacation: Over. Back to work again. 2 weeks is to short and I lost a day in travelling from east to west over the International date line with 14 hours of air flight. (Which is 12 hours when done west to east since it rides along the rotation of the earth.) But it was still good well spent quality time with my family.
SEO Contest: With last minute efforts, I was already number 10 that night. But was dancing at 10 and 11. And the top 10 win a prize. And when it was the official results time to refresh it, I moved to 11. Nyhahaha. Some of my friends told me it sucks, but all I can say, the SEO lessons in the contest are priceless. There’s a lot that I have learned in this contest. I have some photos of the Isulong SEOph SEO contest event here.
Michael Turner of HarvestSEO got some photos too and said something about me attending the event. He’s probably right. 🙂
Anton Diaz had a nice photo with me in the center, and also with my wife in the group photo. 🙂
The Storm: The day right after I came to the Philippines was when typhoon Milenyo passed by and knocked down a bunch of trees and electrical post. We had no electricity for 2 days while other areas were worse, up to today, some places in Bicol have no power and even phone lines are dead too.
Photos/Videos: I will try to prepare them and uploaded one by one. I still got to catch up with emails, voicemails, IM’s, snail mails, all waiting for my attention.
Back to Work: Yes, and I miss my family already. I drove my daughter everyday to school, and went with my wife everywhere. I came to the US Tuesday 12am, sorted my stuff, slept at 4am, went to work, came home, slept and… wow, I slept too long! I woke up at 3:30pm and called up the office right away. Well I will get a lot of sleep now, so I can catch up. At 4:40pm, I decided to pass by Einstein Industries just before they go home at 5:00pm and talk to a few friends and leave some dried mangos. Tomorrow is all work again.
My Vacation: Going back to the Philippines, and attending an SEO Contest awarding and an excellent time to be with my family. And… design projects, development projects, SEO projects, hosting accounts, SEO contest, rooms a mess, legal stuff, quality family time, maybe seminars/speaking engagements coming up, arrggg. Maybe it may not feel like a vacation. But aside from attending the SEO contest awarding, being with my family is the best, nothing beats that.
My wife once had UTI, which can be brought about through Cystitis. She was really in pain. What she was feeling was having a hard time urinating and she always had to urinate often which was always painful. With this kind of feeling she started to have a high fever as well and was getting the chills because of the pain in the pelvic area.
Although there are several types of Cystitis, the most common cause is by the bacteria Escherichia coli, commonly known as E. Coli, that when found in the lower gastrointestinal tract, this is where the Cystitis problem starts. Treatment always recommends doctor attention and in most cases of bacterial infection, an antibiotic is prescribed. Although there has been several side effects known with the use of antibiotics, there are some recommended alternatives such as D-Mannose.
There is natural and synthetic D-Mannose and D-Mannose can be naturally found with simple sugar since this is a stereoisomer of Glucose and can be found in small quantities in fruits like cranberries. Although our bodies had D-Mannose, this is abundantly excreted into urine. This is know to work well with bladder infections such as Cystitis, as this can flush out E.Coli. If I have know this when my wife had UTI, I would have recommended this treatment to augment her antibiotic medication. Itâ€™s safe and has no known side-effects. And D-Mannose can easily be purchased online.
Disclaimer: I am no doctor and if ever you have Cystitis, UTI or any type of bladder infection, don’t just listen to my advice and take D-Mannose. Consult your doctor and seek their advice.
This pendant is actually a part of history too. Since it is 25 cents in Philippine currency which is no longer used as the flora and fauna coin series were already changed. And only coin collectors probably have these coins of the past. This coin is silver and gold plated. Looks like a cool pendant to me. I bought mine from this online store. If you want one too, I link the photo to the store.
It seems you can really target a different market in UK especially for localized products. When buying flowers in the US, you can always go to 1800Flowers who actually own the domain name flowers.com. But if I wanted to send flowers to the Philippines, I really do not know what website to use yet. But for flowers in UK, I already know who to trust, that would be Seranata Flowers. They have a user-friendly shopping cart, with some AJAX driven thumbnail previewing. Here are some flower arrangements that I believe my wife would love.
Happy Birthday to my Bro-in-Law, Rene and to my neice, Tintin! And to my… wala, no relation to Aga Mulach. *LOL*
Growing up kids is enjoyable, you do not really want to spy on them, and still give them enough freedom to breathe, but you still would want to monitor them in a way just to ensure they are going up in the right direction.
In the information age, the Internet has been a tool that has been used in both good ways and bad ways. And I guess one concern of many parents is what do their children do online? Chatting and emails have been tools also of the malicious people looking for targets of prey, from pedophiles to scammers, phishing attempts and plain robbers getting information about your home. With the high volume of pornography, illegal gambling, illegal selling of drugs online and adult dating websites, you would want to take some extra precautionary measures.
One way to be sure is by the user of keylogger programs. A good keystroke logger can make parents feel more secure without staying over the shoulder of your children. A leader in the keystroke logging software is Spectorsoft. and you might want to check them out. They have been mentioned in several TV programs and magazines. They can monitor emails, blogs, surfing activity, chatting and more. This may also have other applications in the business world as well as in private investigation purposes.
Louie and Joe-an Morales now has a new bouncing baby girl! Tiffany Hannah! Prepare for sleepless nights. Making milk in feeding bottles with your eyes closed and changing diapers. But the rest is all fun!
When you have a family and you supposed not always rely everything on your wife for things to do at home. And somethings are really men’s jobs especially when it comes to task related to fixing things that require a bit of physical effort. I am not living with my wife right now, but I always make it a point that when I am home with her, I try to fix everything I can so she does not have to do them.
I know several people that may disagreed with me. I think it all depends on their culture, their upbringing. There are some guys that want to be served everything because he is king. There are some that will do it, to avoid the nagging but does not want to do it.
Well if you are splitting task and was given the chance to choose from either folding clothes, washing the dishes, cleaning the bathroom, I suggest do folding the clothes and the video below will get you done in no time. Then you can spend the rest of the time watching TV on your favorite sports channel. (Which is not my attitude/behavior, since I like helping my wife in everything. And I know she knows that.)
