Fortify Your Relationship

Thriving marriage is very important for everybody.Broken family is not good for kids to grown up.The kids always need parents to guide them, to make a better future.Today some couples decided to separate or file annulment rather than keeping on a relationship which didn't work anymore.
I gonna share some lines how to fortify your wife or husband.I have also try to do this in my current relationship.

  • Stay honest
  • Share all your hopes,triumphs and failures as well as attraction and temptations which will help you from acting honestly.
  • Make time just for the two of you on regular basis (away from kids,friends and family)
  • Surround yourself with happily married friends who don't believe in fooling around.

Shop for your Pets

Do you have pets at home?How do you take care of them?I will share my experienced of taking care a pet.I buy a puppy girl last May 2008.The doggy has now four cute puppies ( two boys and two girls). I had a hard time taking care of puppy.The first month she get sick.Maybe, she is homesick with her mother and siblings.Pets are like human too although they cannot talk but they need tender loving care.The puppy did not eat.She vomit every time she eat.I feed a milk,a hot dog etc. but she didn't take a glance her dog bowl feeder.I am pity looking the puppy even she is sick when I arrived home after work she play my feet. I chat my workmate about puppy.She said shop online and get ideas how to take care Dog. This is what I did.I shop for puppy a dog food,dog toys, leashes and collars.The most important page is to heed if puppy get sick. Now, doggy with puppies are healthy and they relieve my stress at work because they love to play with me.

I have also a cat.I do not love cat.why? because they make pooh pooh anywhere.lol.But,I see mice inside the house.I said to myself "I need cat now" .I don't want to buy sprays just to kill the mice because they will still came back.I shop online again for cat.huh? You gonna ask me, "It's crisis time,why I am still shopping for pets ? " The answer is "If you love your pets and I am sure pets had benefits too.You will also do what I am doing."Besides, shopping online is cheaper .I buy a litter box for my cat.The price is worth and my kitty didn't pooh pooh anywhere.If she make pooh pooh she run and look her litter box.This is funny because if I clean the litter box and she feel pooh pooh she is making noise and run and run looking the litter box.

How about birds and small pets?Do you love to take care too?They are cute pets.My friend have parrot in the house.When, I visit her I heard a voice saying " a girl ,a girl " .I notice the parrot.lol.Then I ask a bird food to my friend and feed her.She says "thank you,thank you".It is cute and funny.I like the parrot plastic cage it is nice and comfy for all types of bird to place .If you have small pets at home like hamster.I will recommend a good kind of cage which only cost 8 dollars or 376 pesos free shipping.Isn't cheap?Shop now for your pets at lowest and affordable price.

Avoid Surcharges

Surcharges is add-on charges in bank or ATM card etc.If you are using ATM cards do not transact out of your network.why? Because, you can't escape of charges.I have an unforgettable experienced in ATM card.The first time I use ATM card was on my first job.The company open an ATM account for us.It was my first payday.I am excited! I go to the mall and I text my workmate if she withdraw her money already in the ATM.She said "I already did." So, I see an atm machine in the mall.I look at my card "megalink" .The ATM machine accept megalink card so my card will be accepted here.I withdraw my money.I was surprised because my available balance is only 500pesos.I ask my workmate how much is her salary.She told me "3,000 pesos"!my gosh! I guess my money was debit!I go to inside the bank and talk to the bank personnel in the information.I told her my concern.She told me I was not debit.Their bank charge is in terms of dollar to other network in every ATM transaction! wow! I can't claim my money anymore.This is my fault!It is a lesson to stick in your own bank network.

Do you use Dental Floss?

I have a denture but I still use floss for my other tooth to keep it clean.Why it is important?Not all food are remove by brushing.If we neglect to use floss it will lead directly to tooth decay,gum inflammation and gum disease.Gum disease may contribute to cardiovascular disease.So, we have to keep our mouth and tooth clean!

How to Take Care your Swim Suits?

Summer is here!It is very hot nowadays we need to pamper ourselves in a beach for comfort.I am sure almost all of us has swim suit.right? I will share you gals how to take care your swimming attire in washing and drying.

For Washing:

  • Do not use washing machine to wash your swim suit but if you do set it on gentle cycle.
  • Never use fabric softener it will weaken the material.
  • Rinse your swim suit with fresh water and baby shampoo immediately after using to get rid it of chlorine.
  • Never let it in contact with bleach.

For Drying:
  • Drip your suit in shade.
  • Never use direct sunlight or using a heater this methods will only allow the elastic fabric to rot and melt away.
  • Do not iron your swim wear.

Headphone Tips

If you are looking a waterproof ( for sweating),pocket sized and in-ear for nice fit ear phones.Here is I would say to you:Most in-ear head phones are designed for sweat.Do not go dunking them for swimming pool though they are not waterproof.For best fit make sure you get in-ear head phones that provide different ear attachments for different sized ears.Lastly,if you want an external volume control you need a headphone with remote control.I see one in apple but it is pricey!

Deodorant or Anti -Perspirant?

I have read a clip regarding deodorant and anti perspirant.Did you check your deodorant?Some product is combine deodorant and antiperspirant.right?Deodorant is fine but antiperspirant is not!why? From the word itself means it prevent you from perspiring.Don't you know that human body purge toxins. Like arms pit,behind the knees,groin area,behind the ears.The toxins in the body parts are purge by means of perspiration.So, if we use antiperspirant our armpits will not be perspire thereby inhibiting from purging toxins below the armpit.This will lead a cause of breast cancer.

My Page Rank

I was surprise my blog PR today.The last time I check my page rank is still zero.But, when I check it today it was already PR2 .wow ! I feel glad to know it.Thanks to everybody who visited my blog and browse my post here.Without you guys/gals my blog will not exist here anymore.Thank you.Thank you!

Babies Need

Most of working mom do not breast feed their babies.In the hospital it is advise to breast feed the babies.Milk bottled is not allowed inside the hospice.There are moms that their milk do not flow.I am sure some moms experience this situation.If milk won't flow you try to apply a warm compress to your breasts for a few minutes to start milk letdown.Mother's milk is rich in antibodies that protect against diarrhea,pneumonia,neonatal sepsis and improve also child IQ.


Do you need moisturizers?Absolutely,yes! Our skin can suffer drought both summer and rainy season.Taking care of your skin is not only using UV protection or whitening lotion in a beach but also protect it with thick moisturizers.Frequent bathing can damage your skin's lipid barrier leading to water loss.Long hours at an air conditioned office with its low humidity level can also dry your skin.This is really true.As I started working in factory my skin is always dry because of dryness it itchiness arise.I stop using whitening lotion anymore because it can dry my skin instead I buy a pure skin moisturizing lotion and soap.

Chewing Gum

I cannot eat chewing gum because of my denture.Don't you know that eating chewing gum is good for the health too?Most of gum chewers spent less time in the hospital. Chewing gum do not relieve dry mouth only or aid digestion only.This is also good especially those who have colons.Patients who totally or partially remove colons to recover intestinal function is advise to chew sugarless chewing gum for 5 to 45 minutes three times a day after surgery.It was found to pass gas 0.66 day earlier than those who did not chew.Gum chewing also stimulate nerves in our digestive system.


Constipation signify an underlying medical problem like irritable bowel syndrome.This is mainly a result of unhealthy habit or sudden lifestyle change.I have experienced once and I do not like to happen it again.I feel sweat every time I discharge my bowel.It is really difficult.I go to my doctor and she give me medication and some simple tips.Here it is:
  • Eat a well balanced high fiber diet that includes beans,bran whole grains,fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Drink plenty of liquids
  • Exercise regularly
  • Set aside time after breakfast or dinner for undisturbed visits to the toilet
  • Do not ignore the urge to have bowel movement
  • If a significant or prolonged change in bowel habits occurs check with a doctor

Digicam Megapixels

My digicam is only 7.2megapixels.How about its memory card? Is it 7.2megapixels too?I gonna tell you guys how to distinguish the megapixel of your memory card. The megapixel ratings determine print size but more megapixel do not mean better quality.Five megapixel can already produce 8.5x6.5 inch prints.Zoom levels can only cause noise on images.You have to ignore this figure and look at optical zoom ranges instead.
