Our old house is almost 20 years old and I say it badly needs renovation. I know it will be impractical to do a renovation since we will be moving out soon, but it's also impractical to leave the place to rot.
We were planning to sell the place but it looks like nobody wanted to buy the house since everyone is trying to save a penny as much as they could. So my brother just gave me an idea on what to do with this place when we leave it under his watch. He said he would put up an internet shop a restaurant and some bar at night.
His plans look good and not need much of the remodeling like what I was thinking before a 3 door apartment complex and that we would need the service of Rockford Remodeling for that. With his plans he could just do simple renovations he can do himself.

Our old house is almost 20 years old and I say it badly needs renovation. I know it will be impractical to do a renovation since we will be moving out soon, but it's also impractical to leave the place to rot.
The whole is experiencing a global economic recession. Some companies are folding up while others are laying off employees. I know this sounds bad but most of us are under debt and are afraid that we will never get to pay our loans if we loose our jobs.
Even before you loose your job, lets hope you wont though, but it's better to be prepared than be sorry later. It is best you consult some experts to do some credit repair for you so that when you badly need a loan in the near future you can still get approved without any hassle.
Some credit company won't just approve you if you have one negative record in the past. These folks at DSI Solutions can do a repair credit for you.
You don't need to pay for huge interest by having a fix credit with this guys. They know what they are doing and this can help you lots in the near future. With this one you can get approved with all the loans you need be it a car loan, housing loan, medical loans, college fees and much much more.
I don't dress-up much because I hate to be super dressed and commute. It's not convenient and practical. But last Friday was different. I was wearing full make-up and dressed to the nines. It was fun!

I haven't been exercising in a long time all because I feel most of the exercise I do are straining my joints or maybe because I am doing them improperly. Whatever it is I wish there is a way that I won't feel the stress on my knees and joints. I've been researching about elliptical machines and I found some of the best rated elliptical machine available. Maybe I should try to get one of the simplest machine and then decide if I should get that cross trainer one.

There are more and more people who are desperate just to fill an empty stomach. They retort to crime and violence against other people. One can never be sure about their safety these days unless they take a step up in protecting their homes and I am talking about home security system.
In America more than 5 milions of people use the ADT monitored security systems to protect their homes. Even 90% of the Fortune 500 Companies, U.S. government buildings, and airports rely on ADT Security System.
This is because they already have 130 years experience in security system. They are very reliable with their fast response, 24 hour monitoring, low monthly fees and easy to use home system.
Call 866-395-9730 to get a free assessment or check out their website to know more. It's better to be safe than sorry.

From the art he has created it looks like he likes to go to night clubs and bars and even Japanese restaurants. It also looks like he likes to gamble, play golf, enjoy the beach and surf and also watch ballet shows. Looks like he lives in Las Vegas to me or he frequents Las Vegas. There were a couple of guys wearing Elvis costume. It also appears like he likes to dine in a lot and meet the chef or cook of a certain restaurant he visits in person.
I'd like to use the Sushi Server, the Les Trios Chef and the Miso Hungry art he did for my food blog and use the Piano Jam or Legends for my events blog. Looks like he also enjoys listening to Jazz music and Jazz band. I'd say this guy has taste and lives life to the fullest. The colors he used for his painting are lively too. They could spice up a room if you hang one on your wall.
Before your housing loan from Pag-IBIG gets approve their representative will call you up to ask you some basic questions to see if the developer is complying with their standards for home or property procurement.
Some basic questions they will ask is if you have visited the property you are going to procure and if the basic necessities are already in place such as electricity and water. They will also ask if there is proper ventilation and if there are no damage to the place.
After the interview they will assign a home inspector to check the property to make sure that it is livable. Like the people from the Baltimore Home Inspection only licensed inspector are allowed to do this because this is a serious business. If one of the basic elements to make a home livable is not seen in the property they will delay approval of the loan until the developer complies. This is for your own protection as a buyer to ensure that you get the best from your investment. As soon as the developer complies with the requirement the home inspector will then do an ocular visit to see if it the modifications was really done and they will immediately inform Pag-IBIG that the property is good to be sold.

The best gift a father can give to his child is the love he has for their mother. I think my dad loved my mom so much until his last breathe even if they argue a lot because I believe people argue because they still care. If people don't argue anymore they don't care.
Miss you Papa, wherever you are. I love you.

I was reading an article earlier about how the people from Iceland was considered the happiest people on Earth. The introduction made me think twice on how on Earth did they became the happiest people on earth when they have the highest birth rate in Europe + highest percentage of women working outside the home + highest divorce rate. But still with that the country was considered to be the best place to live in the world.
I read through it and I was enlightened a bit. It tells how people in that country are happy go lucky people who don't give a heck about things. They don't care what other people say as long as they do what they want. Moral standards are out of the question as to them what is moral and not depends on your religion, environment and belief. Icelandic prime minister, Geir Haarde believe that this is because he have incorporated the best of U.S. and Europe in this country.
This is an excerpt from that article: "But none of this happiness would be possible without the hardy self-confidence that defines individual Icelanders, which in turn derives from a society that is culturally geared - as its overwhelming priority - to bring up happy, healthy children, by however many fathers and mothers. A lot of it comes from their Viking ancestors, whose males were rampant looters and rapists, but had the moral consistency at least not to be jealous of the dalliances of their wives - tough women who kept their families fed in the semi-tundra harshness of this north Atlantic island while their husbands forayed, for years at a time, far and wide. As a grandmother I met on my first visit to Iceland, two years ago, explained it: 'The Vikings went abroad and the women ran the show, and they had children with their slaves, and when the Vikings returned they accepted it, in the spirit of the more the merrier."
If all couples would get married just to get Dallas divorce lawyer when they have misunderstanding then I think I don't want to get married anymore ever. I would rather stay single than go have a Dallas family lawyer on my back all the time updating me about the case and what I can and can not get from the procedure.
I hope I won't need a DALLAS FAMILY LAWYER in my life though. I only want to be married to one man if not none at all. I am not from Iceland and I don't think I will like their ways because I was brought-up differently by my parents. My country does not have divorce because we believe in the sanctity of marriage.

If you are off to make a self-hosted blog one of the things you should consider is that that web hosting provider should be able to provide you with unlimited disks space, unlimited bandwidth and that can host unlimited domain. It would be great to find a hosting site that would accept Paypal as a mode of payment because you can never be to sure about giving your credit card details online these days. Another issue to look at is that a web hosting provider should have a domain registration and web hosting at the same time. And lastly, they will do all the set-up especially with the most important ones like propagating your site and set-up and all other pertinent things to get your running.
Well, good news, I found this kind of provider all I did was pay and wait for the email to tell me that my site is ready to customize.
I also found this web hosting site that is so affordable and includes a free domain forever web hosting which is something everyone with a website would like to have. I think this one would be good to have since it also has unlimited everything and payable through Paypal.

Speaking of bikes I was watching Wish Ko Lang last Saturday and was touched by this guy who was so dependent on his bike as means of transportation to and from school. Wish ko lang is a TV show that grants people their wish or at least gives them the motivation to achieve their dreams.
They made it appear that this guys bicycle was stolen and it was so obvious how the guy was so crushed upon learning he can never see his precious bike anymore. And when they finally showed him his bike which is a lot different from the old one, they renovated it, change chairs, handlebars and tires, made it brand new, he was so happy. He hugged and kissed the bike like a family member he haven't seen in a while. He called his bike his bestfriend.
Aside from fixing his bike, they gave this guy 4 year college scholarship and gave him a mountain bike he can use to commute much faster to and from school. Pretty neat.
Two of my three favorite Hollywood actors made it to the Top 50 of the World's Most Powerful Celebrity of Forbes. My favorite actors are Robin Williams, Will Smith and Adam Sandler, I think they should be in the movie awards Will Smith was Top 11 while Adam Sandler was Top 16.
Robin Williams was not there probably because he did not have any movie lately because he just had his bi-pass operation. I was glad to see him coping very well with his operation and was happy to see a YouTube video he sent through his Facebook fans that he is alright.
Will Smith undoubtedly was placed in Top 11 because of his two awesome movie last year Hancock and Seven Pounds. He is also continuously on the news and in fact was rumored to be the next James Bond, the black James Bond. I love this guy because he makes the great movies with great effects and story lines and the fact that he can act and he can sing and has nice body.
Adam Sandler was placed on the Top 16 because of his funny movie You Don't Mess With the Zohan. I love this guy because of his feel good movies.
I support these guys and I think Hollywood should have more actors like them they make great movies. You can catch them all on cable.

One of the first things my sister and I would be doing when she arrive is process the move-in papers pay the necessary fee needed and get someone to help do the interiors in the new condo. I am so excited at moving in. I wish we can move right now. It's all so convenient for us. We don't have to travel four hours round trip just to the places me and my daughter need to visit thrice a week. The new condo is just five minutes away from my daughter's school, her speech therapy clinic is just 10 minutes away, her occupational therapy clinic and doctor is five minutes away. Commuting is not a hassle anymore as the MRT is just six floors away.
I remember my sister commented about the exterior painting in the condo. She didn't like it and asked if we could arrange to have the exterior painted as well aside from the interior of the condo but I doubt it of course. I was thinking maybe we can do the painting by ourselves when she gets home but well she is on vacation she might not want to do that. Anyway we could hire the people from the Albuquerque Painting to do the job. I heard they can do murals too. I was thinking of some cloud painting on the ceiling of my bedroom, something my daughter would love to look at instead of look down from the patio, scary!

June 3 will be the date my sister will come home for a vacation and hopefully by that date the move-in papers are ready and we can transfer before she leaves again. We are just waiting for the move-in papers to get here so we can formalize the move and everything will be legal and according to the policy.
I wish it will be soon because the school season is on and I don't want to commute four hours round trip to and from my daughter's school. And since her speech therapy will commence soon I don't want to miss it out and have both of us exhausted every time she has a session.
I also need to organize all our stuff that we will take to our new home. Get some boxes and label the stuff so when it's time to move it will be easier and when it's time to unpack it will be a lot easier for me.
We might be contacting some movers if the van from my brother's office won't be available. I hope there will be professional movers like the Houston Movers that we can contact. Someone who is reliable and trustworthy. It's so hard to find someone trusting these days.
I've been thinking about investing some of my money on the stock market but since I am inexperienced I am having second thoughts. I love reading this blog of an Experienced Trader Online I can see the trends of the market and get some tips. Reading his blog some more in the coming months would give me enough idea about the trend and maybe will get the courage to invest someday.
June has a lot of occasions lined-up for me. My mom's birthday on the 13th, my brother's birthday last June 11, start of the school season and my parents wedding anniversary. If dad is still with us right now they would be celebrating their 37th wedding anniversary.
I admire my dad for being the loyal husband that he was. In spite of my mom nagging her most of the time and their ugly fights the past years he never left and never thought of getting another woman.
I wish all men are like that. They stay loyal and true and stick to one woman only. Is there such a man like that who exist these days? I don't think so. But I hope they do.
Weddings and birthdays gives me happy and sad thoughts. I better stop now.

The adage that first impression always last can always be true especially wit our homes. Usually the first thing a guest will likely notice is the way you have landscaped the areas around your home. And if the guests arrives at night they will also notice the lighting.
You can enhance a certain area with fine arts lamps that can illuminate the care and creativy you have put into your home's surroundings. But the reverse can also happen if you made the wrong placement.
Good pieces can also spruce a nice conversation with your guests by strategically placing wonderful lighting products like chandeliers, lamps, wall mount scones, pendant lights, accent lights and more. There are hundreds of choices and ideas you can use at the house of lighting. They have picture lights, task and spot lights that can accentuate the photographs or painting you hang on your walls or wall lamps that can liven-up a dull hallway.

I've been attending a lot of events one after another since Monday and I am feeling the toll of it. Aside from having tons of blog backlogs, I feel super super tired. I will be begging out of other events lined-up today like the Pussy Cat Dolls World Domination tour concert tonight and the Sandbox launch event, the Ako Mismo Dog Tag Day at the Fort on Friday and so much more. I want to stay at home this weekend and rest and do my blog backlogs. I am soooo tired. Wanna sleep.

I went to visit Japan, Malaysia and Singapore in one day. It was fun and exciting now I am having body aches! I'll just take some meds and ready to roll for a fun James Bond night at Casino Royale weeeeee! If I got the pot money I would buy some nice rustic furniture they will look so good in my new home!

I tried to learn how to drive maybe three or four times but I just can't get myself do it. I have the tendency to forget my left from my right and so when my driving instructor was telling me to turn left I mistook it as right and so what happened was we almost hit a post! Thanks to that reliable power steering and power steering rack installed on my friends car we were able to avoid that accident.
Yup I am that bad when it comes to driving and directions and with the kind of drivers we have here in Manila, I will leave the driving to drivers and I will just sit comfortably in the passenger's seat.

Whenever there's a need for repairs around the house like the basic changing of bulbs or fixing the faucet or cover holes on our roof, I wish there was a man in the house. I think that is what men are made for, to be the handyman around the house and do the hard jobs inside the home. Too bad we don't have a man in the house and I don't have a man in the house so I just have to be one myself.
Could you imagine the tiny old me be able to move our refrigerator aside just to be able to be able to cover the entire floor flawlessly? Can you imagine me lift huge sofa and TV rack? Well I can do it honestly. I guess I have the energy for it.
But honestly if Houston Flooring was just nearby I would have immediately call them without hesitation to save me from all the lifting, dragging, sweating and all the nitty-gritty a handyman should be doing around the house. All I have to do is be cute and wipe the sweat off my man and prepare his meal after the hard work. Maybe give him a massage or two, prepare his shower and sing him a lullaby after.

It's been raining for a week now and I just discovered so many new leaks at the recently fixed roof we had. And probably because of the earthquake just a couple of months ago I discovered a lot of cracks in the house that needs to get fixed.
Also, I need to install a new flooring because I just peeled out the old vinyl I had installed just last year. This place is falling out of place. Either it wants us to leave soon or it is in dire need of renovation before we leave. I know we will be moving out soon but that doesn't mean we have to just leave everything to rot in here right?
I need the services of the Fort Worth Remodeling to do some magic in our home. The handyman/carpenters my mom hires here are not doing their job well. This house needs a major overhaul from someone dependable and competent and can do the job right. Somebody, help!

I don't know it's only here in the Philippines but whenever it rains expect that power outage will come next. It's annoying really since most would rather stay at home than get wet outside. I don't know why it happens but probably because of wrong electrical installations by Meralco or because of the electric thieves tampering on the wiring's that make this happen.
This would not happen if those who install the electric facility here are as professional as the people from the Chicago Electrician. They are professionals who got their license and enrolled on the related course and got certificates before they can practice.
Well so far so good it's been raining for days here now almost a week. But the power and net is still on. Oooopps I should not talk about or I might jinx it.
Did you know that there are more than 11 million World of Warcraft (WoW) users around the world and all of them spends hours to play this game.
One of the things players of this MMORPG game love is the way they can interact with other players anywhere in the world and one of the things they are looking for are WoW Gold that is.
It would also take a lot of hours and days of playing the game. You also have to be on a level higher than 3 to get more of Warcraft Gold. For some it can be a bore and time consuming.
Some players don't have the patience to wait that long and would rather pay real money so they can enjoy the game more. There is cool site where you can Buy WoW Gold.
World of Warcraft Gold is the currency use in there buying and selling these stuff are already common for the game. Some would also sell their accounts that have lots of gold and at the higher level to those who could not wait any longer.
As I little girl I dream of becoming a super model. When I became older I knew I can't because I am vertically challenged and so I dream of becoming a fashion designer. When I tried to take a course related to it I realized my family could not afford all the materials needed and so I took another route.
I became something I didn't expect me to be but yet it is so close to what I wanted to be. Not a front liner but behind the scene which is good in a way I get to enjoy both worlds.

Anyway, I wish for sun so my laundry would dry and so that we can get our roof fixed. It appears there are some holes on our roof. There were leaks here and there in the house especially at mom's room that we did not know of. Most of the clothes on mom's closet got wet and the flooring was semi-flooded too.
Our roof has been fixed one too many times but it seems we always get unprofessional guys here. We have to do it twice a year. Aside from other repairs in the house that the same cheap workers my mom gets. I wish that Atlanta Roofer was just around the corner so they can fix our roof for good and don't have to worry about ruined clothes when the rain comes. Or I wish I can do everything so we don't need to pay anyone to do the job right.
Everyone is trying to save as much as they could. But that doesn't mean you have to buy cheap and imitations right? You should always buy the original and keep the music and movie industry alive. Here are the Best CD Rates available and you can choose from all these original titles and expect a return of your investment.
