Carpet Installed

Carpet installation was one of the many improvements that we did before we moved in to this house that we bought  5 years ago.  We decided to ripped off the old carpet because it was filthy and we did not like the color anyway.  We hired a carpet company to do it s for us.

Fastest Acting Insulin Medication

If you are a type 1 and type 2 diabetic person, you are probably  aware of the insulin medication called Humalog. Humalog is believed to be one of the fastest acting insulin medication that will work in about 15 minutes after you  inject it.  You can  buy Humalog online but beware of those  online store that sells them as they may give you the fake ones.  Based from what I read on the website, there is no  generic Humalog available.  Elli Lilly and Company are the ones that  solely manufactures or produces  this insulin medication.

Some people  are looking for ways to buy cheap Humalog online and MedSaverCard or RxBattle are some of the options where there are cheap Humalog but as what I have said above, beware  of the fake ones that they might issue you.  It must be very hard to be a diabetic because you  have to maintain the medication and  watch your sugar intake to avoid complications.

Tory Burch Sandals

He'ya everyone, are you ready for some equestrian talking?  Well, let's start with the old gringo selection of boots at Infinity Shoes.  Those kind of shoes are great if you love to ride on a horse,  go on nature trekking, or even  going for a date with a cowboy.  Those are the scenes I have in my mind whenever I see those kinds of shoes.  

Tory Burch Sav Sandal Silver LeatherOn the other note, I found some  very cute and chick tory burch shoes and sandals at Jildor webpage.  These two are the ones  that I like among their selection.  Those would look good on skinny feet which I don't have unfortunately.  I have  a set of wide feet so basically  slip ons doesn't look good on my feet.  But I honestly love the style and designs.

Tory Burch Sparkle Jelly Thora Sandal Island PinkShoe Inn is sponsoring a $200 worth of gift card every month  for those lucky winners who would join their VIP Club.  Being a VIP club will give you  a lot of benefits like an exclusive  email   of their sale, a birthday discount, and an email of their special event.  So if you are feeling lucky and you love shoes so much, this is your chance to grab this  rare opportunity.

Snap Dragon

We are back to below freezing temperature so I am kinda bummed out about it.  I thought that  we can enjoy the Spring already but we are still stuck. sigh.  Anyhow, the flower above was taken last year when we visited my BIL's house.  I think those are  snapdragon, my SIL Michaele has a lot of those with different colors in her garden.

You are the Boss

When I was still working an office job, I always wonder  how it is like to run your own business at home and you  can be the boss.  Working in a big institution and with different bosses around can be s much stressful.  Not to mention the  everyday commute that you have to do from home to  the workplace and vice versa.  Do you feel that way too sometimes?  I am lucky to have found a job where I can just  do at home because I can take care of my family and   do my online tasks in my own convenient time.  

If you are  however a business minded person, the Specialty Merchandise Corp or SMC would be best for you.  With SMC, you can sell products that are made well and reasonably priced.  The good thing about SMC is that you never had to deal with  handling and shipping the smc products on your own as they do it for you.  All you need to do is build a cientele, get their orders, and submit it to SMC  and they will deliver the products on your behalf.

You can read the SMC reviews  to find out  the   products they sell and  what are the necessary steps to become a member of this prestigious company. They have an smc coach that  gives the training  on how you could start on this kind of venture.  You might have read some smc corp scam article  online but those are  dealt with accordingly.  You should know the  company first of what they really are and you will be amazed of how flexible this home based business can be.  You are the boss so you don't have to worry about being yelled at or  things like that.  Check the links for more details on how smc wholesale and other stuff are being done.

Dog's Loyalty

I am sure that most of you have watched this on TV or on youtube but I still want to post it here. It just amaze me how this dog is so loyal to his friend that he wouldn't leave by his/her side.  These dogs  are the ones that survived from the tsunami, the other one is hurt so the other dog stays with her/him.  Now I understand how our dog Champ, did not got when our other former dog tried to flee.  We raised  Champ since he was a baby so I think that he established his loyalty to us.

The above video, reminds me of the  movie I watched a couple of months ago,  with Richard Gere as a star.   A movie that would  make you cry while you're watching it.  Hachicko or Hachi A Dog's Tale - is sad movie depicting about the dog's love and loyalty of his master who have found him when he got loose from his cage and basically raised him.  When Richard Geere suddenly died, the dog still goes to the train station where he used to wait for his master, he did that for nine years until he died.  

According to what I read, this movie was based on a real life story.  So if you have time, try to search for it  on youtube, you can watch  it there or buy a  DVD, it's worth your time and money.  

Chronic Renal Failure

Maintaining a stable level of phosphorous in our bloodstream is very important to ensure that other bodily system is healthy.  For those who are suffering or suffered  from  chronic renal failure  however, it is hard for their body to stabilize the  level of phosphorous  in the bloodstream.  Just like any irregularities in our body, an unregulated  level of phosphorous can cause a serious issue that would deter the  function of other bodily system which can lead to chronic renal failure.

Renagel is one of the medicines recommended for chronic renal failure.  You can  buy renagel in a reputable online pharmacy, winch is I think is the cheapest way because the competition level in the online market is pretty fierce.  You can even  buy generic renagel if you can't afford to pay the amount of the non-generic one.  Market competition is an advantage to us consumers because we can find stuff that are  less in prices  compared to the amount we have to pay when there is no competition at all.  So if you want to buy cheap renagel, search for it online and you will find a good deal.

Street Light

I took a couple of shots of this street light while hubby was pumping air to our car tires a couple of weeks ago.
I hate to go to bed this early but I took a heavy does of nyquail  and it is now kicking up.  I will be returning your visits if time permits tomorrow.  Thank you so much for dropping by and for leaving your thoughts.

Gadgets

Watch out gadget lovers, there are so many cool gadgets available at Howard Technology such as mimio, Howard notebook, desktop, and more.  Isn't it amazing how there is an added gadget available at the market for consumers to buy?  Brilliant people are constantly  producing  cool stuff that would   help to  do  things easier.  Believe it or not but I think I am the last people to have an iPhone lol.  

Ohio River

We paid my brother-in-law Rick and his wife Jill a visit last Sunday. On the way, I tried to take pics of the Ohio River, the water was very high.
Thanks for visiting folks.  I am floating at the moment as I took two  dayquail liquid gels meds  to dry up my sinus.  Oh I hate being sick, it really drains your energy.

Skin Care

My husband has been bugging me to  visit  the skin doctor as I was complaining of my rashes forming under my neck.  It gets very itchy sometimes.  The  medicine that the doctor prescribed to me last time did not work, well, it did at first then  the rashes came back again.  I found this skin care guide and other articles online on what you should to do to avoid  spreading the bacteria to your skin and all that stuff that you can do to have a smooth skin.  Check it out ladies when you have time, it's a good read.

J for Jar

My Filipina friend here in the area (not a blogger) gave me this beautiful vase. She collects jar of different kinds and she said that she bought a set of this but then was delivered alone. The store said that they ran out of stock of the other ones so instead of paying for shipping to return it back, she just gave it tom. 
Thanks a lot ate Agnes.  Thank you also for those  of you who frequent this blog and my other blogs, every visit you make  and comments left is always  appreciated.

Thrift Find # 1


I found a new meme, Share a Thrift Hunt, when I was blog hopping early this morning.  I am joining  even if my entry is late already weee.  Below are the thrift stuff that I found a couple of months ago. I got the black and white laced top for free at Listia - a place where you can get free stuff and  I bought the tan corduroy for $5, it was originally priced at $29.99 at JC Penny but I got it on sale.

Round Building

A quick snap  I took when we were driving along the highway of McKnight Road  in Pittsburgh, PA going to  Chuck e Cheese located at McIntyre Square Drive.  I am not sure what  building is this for but it looks pretty.  I didn't capture the whole look though.

Island

Ain't this look neat, it looks like a small island or swamp.  Island is my contribution for this week's   ABC Wednesday.
Hubby took these shots last week.  He was telling me how fast the snow was  melting on top of his truck so I immediately grabbed the camera and gave it to him before all the water pour down the ground lol.  Thanks for taking the pics Mr. K.

Fort Pitt Tunnel

Fort Pitt Tunnel is one of the many favorite things that our burritos look  into whenever we go to Pittsburgh.  It reminds  them of the many tunnels that we go through when  we were still in Korea.

Snowflakes.. Frozen

I took this shot at our truck's windshield last week.  For those who haven't seen snowflakes yet, here you go, the frozen version.  I was able to capture that before the sun hits, I think minutes after I snapped this, they started melting  from the heat of the engine.
PS.. Would you mind dropping by at my new Opinion Channel blog? Pretty please? Thanks a lot!

While waiting inside the car at the parking lot,  I started looking around  to see if there's an interesting subject to take pictures with.  I opened  the passenger window, looked up, and see these twin lights.  CLICK!

My Imaginary Vacation

Uh-oh, it is almost one o'clock in the morning and I am still awake. I will be going to bed here shortly but first I want to finish my imaginary vacation. I have this habit lately of traveling the world virtually. Especially looking at the beautiful villas in Cyprus, oh it makes me really wish that I am physically traveling and enjoying the beautiful places there.  

One of the bloggers that I know and constantly visit  lives in Cyprus and I like  all of  his articles because he features   different kinds of bloggers  from around the world.  No wonder, the readers of his blog is getting hooked up in reading his  entries.  Just by reading and viewing all the photos that he is uploading in his site gives me the satisfaction of seeing different  places around the world without leaving the comfort of my own home.  Ain't Internet  a magical thing?

The Tower
You know, if I would be given an opportunity to travel the world, I would definitely  check out the listings of villa holidays and other  accommodations at Owners Direct.  You can find over 37,000 holiday homes that are for rent and you would be able to deal  with the transaction through the owner of the property.  Finding the place that you are looking for is very easy with their user friendly website.

To continue on with my imaginary  vacation, my husband  would really want to go to Normandy France so that he could visit the place where his uncle who died in the service and was laid to rest  at the  above mentioned place.  He said that  when the kids are  grown up already and we have  some savings to travel, he definitely want to visit there.  I wouldn't mind traveling anywhere in the world you know.  But who knows, I might get lucky and  realize my dream hehehe.  For now, I gotta hit the hay and  continue my imaginary vacation in my DREAMS.. Goodnight everyone!

Bright Smiles. Bright Future

Brushing our choppers is a family activity at yours truly's abode. We have these form for the kids and it is a routine for all of us.
Flossing is also part of our daily routine after brushing our teeth.
It's fun especially for the kids.  Sometimes, our dog Champ is with us inside our bathroom too.  I think he is wondering why we are all there.
Powered or electric toothbrush are our burritos favorite to use.  They are available in different cartoon characters that they like.
Toothpaste also comes in different characters of their choice.  This motivates them more in cleaning up their teeth.
Have a lovely week ahead everyone!  Thanks for commenting and for dropping by!

Gas Leak is Fixed

The plumber came at 8:30 yesterday and a little bit later came the workers from the city to work on our gas pipe. They were able to finish the job at 12:30. It was a big relief as the house was starting to get so cold even with two electric heaters.
The plumber was super nice because when we offered to pay cash, he  gave us a hundred dollars discount.  So we just paid $550 instead of 650 bucks.
My plants in the corner got tore up though huhuhu but it's okay it can be replaced, our lives can't if something bad could have happened because of the gas leak.  Good thing God is always watching over us.

Cold

Even though the sun is shining today, our house is cold because we don't have a furnace running.  The plumber won't be able to  work on our gas line till tomorrow.  We are only using our portable heaters to keep us warm 
Hubby said that it is going to  go down to  14 degrees tonight, oh boy it's going to be so cold.  I am glad that we bought  mink blankets  in Korea before we came back here.  It's a big help  during winter times and  on this kind of circumstances.  
These photos were taken weeks ago when I thought that snow was over but I was wrong lol.
Keep me warm with your comments folks, thanks a lot!
