A Gift Idea for Expectant Parents

Are you aware of the value of Cord Blood Banking?

Pumpkin Candle Centerpiece

No centerpiece for a Thanksgiving party? Use this idea for an easy arrangement using only three ingredients: a pumpkin, a candle, and berry sprigs. Here's a fresh way to display pumpkins and candles for Thanksgiving dinner.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Snap or cut the stem off the top of the pumpkin. Placing the bottom end of the pillar candle on the top of the pumpkin, tightly trace the perimeter of the candle's bottom with a marker.
2. Using a sharp knife, cut vertically just inside the traced outline. The cut portion can then be discarded.
3. Wedge the candle securely inside. If you've cut the hole a bit too large, simply place a can or other object inside the pumpkin as a base for the candle. If necessary, keep the candle from tipping by wedging one end of a vine in between the candle and the cut edge.
4. Tuck in a few leaves and sprigs of vine around the base of the candle.

A Delicious Vegetarian Roast

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I am sure most people are crazy for turkey around the holidays, but others are not fond of turkey. If you are having a vegetarian guest this coming holidays, you should not worry because Jones Soda Co. created this special soda for all vegan people out there. Introducing the new Tofurky and Gravy Soda. This soda is especially formulated for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I received a sample and thought it tasted quite interesting. It wasn't at all what I expected. When I first received it, I thought it was going to taste like tofu/turkey/gravy, but actually it wasn't that bad. It probably will become the next American tradition where every family will have Tofurky and Gravy Jones Soda for their Thanksgiving feast. My brother-in-law is hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I would love to get him this new Soda for Thanksgiving. He used to be a vegetarian so I am sure he would appreciate this drink. If you love Turkey, then you probably would love this drink as well. This drink is 100% vegan so even the strictest vegetarians could enjoy it. This drink is best served with mashed potatoes. You can order a gift package which would include one Bottle of Jones Zilch Black Cherry, one bottle of Jones Zilch Pom, one bottle of Jones Zilch Vanilla Bean, three bottles of ToFurkey and one ToFurkey Metal Lunch Box. This great deal is only $11.99 and for every purchase of this product, $1 goes to the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). PAWS is a shelter for homeless animals. So if you are looking for a great gift, you should checkout the Tofurky and Gravy Soda today.

Joke of the Day!

Are you ready to laugh? Here are some funny marriage quotes that you might like. Enjoy!
Nuns: Women who marry God. If they divorce Him, do they get half the universe?

Perfection is what American women expect to find in their husbands, but English women only hope to find in their butlers. -- W. Somerset Maugham

Republican boys date Democratic girls. They plan to marry Republican girls, but feel they're entitled to a little fun first.

Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Shotgun wedding: a case of wife or death.

Spinster: A bachelor's wife.

Suicide is belated acquiescence in the opinion of one's wife's relatives.

Question: Ted Kennedy: "Where was George?"
Answer: Dry, sober, and at home with his wife

The days just before marriage are like a snappy introduction to a tedious book.

To heck with marrying a girl who makes biscuits like her mother--I want to marry one who makes dough like her father.

You Are The Sister I Never Had

This song lyrics is dedicated to all my sisters in heart. This is for you girls. Thanks a lot for the friendship.
I wanted a sister to call all my own
I didn’t get one, my childhood was lone.
I wanted a sister so we could share toys with glee
Alas, all my toys were only played with by me
I wanted a sister with whom to join Scouts
I wanted a sister to share giggly bouts!
I wanted a sister to wear my makeup and clothes
I wanted a sister to help dispel my woes
I wanted a sister to share my joy
Because I got my first date with my very first boy!
I wanted a sister to happily jump up and down
At my high school graduation seeing me in my cap and gown
I wanted a sister to write to from my college dorm room
My letters would be filled with homesick sighs and gloom
I wanted a sister to hear my gripes and vents
About my first boss that made absolutely NO sense!
I wanted a sister to see my shining ring
From the man in my life that made my heart sing
I never got a “Real” sister – and here’s the best part that’s true:
I got a genuine sister.

Very Inspiring Prayer

Dear Lord, I thank You for this day,
I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.
I'm blessed because You are
a forgiving God and an understanding God.
You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for everything
I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing to you.

I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Please keep me safe from all danger and harm.
Help me to start this day
with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.
Let me make the best of each and every day
to clear my mind so that I can hear from You.
Please broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.
And give me the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.

I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do Your will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak...
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who don't know You intimately.
I pray for those that will delete this
without sharing it with others
I pray for those that don't believe.

But I thank You that I believe that God changes people and
God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
For each and every family member in their households.
I pray for peace, love and joy in their homes; that they are out of debt
and all their needs are met. I pray that every eye that reads this
knows there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God.
Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight.

I pray that these words be received
into the hearts of every eye that sees it

White and Purple Phalaenopsis Orchids

TGIF people! It is Friday the 13th alright! Anyhow, I got some orchids in my kitchen!
When hubby did a short trip to the grocery store last weekend, he brought these two gorgeous orchids at home. I was ecstatic! I've been longing to buy orchids long time ago, but I just can't afford and have no budget for it. Why because it is a little bit pricey. Thanks hon!

The generic name means "Phalaen-like" and is probably a reference to the genus Phalaena, the name given by Carolus Linnaeus to a group of large moths; the flowers of some species supposedly resemble moths in flight. For this reason, the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.

They are native throughout southeast Asia from the Himalayan mountains to the islands of Polillo Palawan and Zamboanga del Norte in the island of Mindanao in the Philippines and northern Australia. Orchid Island of Taiwan is named after this genus. Little recent information about their habitat and their ecology in nature is available since little field research has been done in the last decades.

Marriage Quotes

Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.

The bonds of matrimony are like any other bonds - they mature slowly.

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

A community consisting of a master, a mistress, and two slaves, making in all two.

Marriage is an alliance entered into by a man who can't sleep with the window shut, and a woman who can't sleep with the window open.

Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.

Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.

A long marriage is two people trying to dance a duet and two solos at the same time.

Never get married in the morning, because you never know who you'll meet that night.

More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.

My Li'l Helper

Have you ever heard of a tangelo fruit? I honestly have never heard of this kind of citrus fruit before, so I searched the net.

According to my source the tangelo is a member of the citrus family (oranges, lemons, grapefruit etc...). It was originally developed from a cross between a tangerine and either a pomelo or a grapefruit.
Like all citrus trees it is an evergreen with thick bright green waxy leaves. While the trunk of the tree has a greyish hue to it the outer branches are the same colour green as the leaves.
The fruit of a tangelo looks similar to a mandarine. It combines the tartness of a grapefruit with the flavour, smell and ease of peeling of a mandarine . The fruit start to ripen from late Autumn through to late Winter and will hold on the tree for between two and three months.

Thanks to Black & Decker juice extractor!
Since we have plenty of tangelos in our backyard, Akesha and I decided to picked them last weekend. Then we made a fresh tangelo juice. Head over to my kitchen to see the tangelo juice that Akesha made.

Mellow Yellow Monday

How was your weekend people? Our weekend was kind of mighty low. Basically we just stayed at home. Hubby was busy last weekend because it was his duty in the Air Force. Anyhow, we are going to visit the Philippines early next year, so Akesha and I did some packing yesterday. Not clothes...pasalubong for my family...mmmm...maybe for friends!

While I was almost finished sorting the package, Akesha told me that she wants to play "ABC's" on her laptop and I said "go ahead baby", but then when I checked on her... she already fell asleep on the couch. Poor little thing.

Here you Mellow Yellow Monday entry for this week, Akesha's spongebob pajama suit and our humble curtain. For more MYM entries, just click the button above.

Akesha is OUT from the Contest!

"ANNOUNCEMENT: By popular demand, we are suspending the Pinoy Smile Monthly Contest until further notice. Please help us improve the contest. "

"I lose respect already. I have no desire to help you guys neither to improve your contest nor your website. This may not be your fault, but the rules that keep changing all the time is unprofessional. And also, you need to improve your costumer service. Good luck and thanks anyways!"

That's the comment I left from when I found out that they suspended the "Smile Contest". I was irritated when I found out about it. What a waste of time!

Not only I wasted my time and effort campaigning for Akesha, but also I failed you guys. The full support that you showed to us means a lot.

If you are planning to enter you kid to join the Smile Contest, just please please don't ask my favor to go over there. I already made up my mind to not visit their website. You can ask me any favor you want, but please don't make me go over there.

To all my blogger friends and some people from the blogging community, in behalf of my family I would like to thank you all for helping us vote for Akesha. I am sorry to tell you guys, the contest has ended like this.

For those of you who have posted a campaign for Akesha, I am asking a favor to please remove the campaign. I am very lucky to have your support guys. I know that you knew who you are. Your help means a lot. Now I know who my real friends are.

If you have a link or you have followed them, I don't think if it's worth to support them. Don't waste your time.

I am not a bad person, but once you get into my nerves that's the time you get to know the other side of me.

Sorry to be mean and a pessimist. Just expressing my thoughts. God Bless those cheaters!

I need HELP!

ATTENTION: To all my friends and the rest of the blogging community, guys I really need your HELP regarding on the "Smile Contest". Do you think it is a good idea for me to pull out Akesha from the contest? The contest was started a couple of days ago (Nov.4 US time). I know this is a hard decision for me to make, but I want you guys to be part of this decision. Do you think it is a good idea? Here are my sentiments:

I don't like their rules and they keep changing it. For me it is stupid because their basis on winning the contest is the comment. And that is it?

Some contestants have raised over 200 votes already, but most/all their voters were using gmail accounts. I've been having some doubts about it. Who knows if they're cheating or not.

I smell something fishy.....and I don't want to do what they have been or might have been doing. I want to play the game fairly. What if I will make 1k or more gmail accounts and will vote for Akesha every single day? Am sure they will not notice that. Right?

I know for sure that 99.9% of Akesha's voters are legit and real people and not just random/made up accounts. This is not only about the contest or the prize. This is also about helping their website to get more traffic. I also don't want you guys and some people from the blogging community to go to and waste your time to go over there for the rest of the month to vote for Akesha. We are not sure if other voters from other participants are legit or not. I hope I make sense.

I don't want to waste my time campaigning and let you guys add traffic on their website. I emailed the admin a few times already regarding the rules, but I did not get a single letter on the alphabet from them. I hope you guys can help me decide. I will share my vote for you. I will vote "YES". As I said, I don't want to waste everybody's time. There is no way Akesha can make it if other people are cheating.

In behalf of the Dias family, I would like to thank ya'll for the support and for casting your vote to Akesha. Your help means a lot. You are very much appreciated!

Acne Cream

Acne happens when oil glands come to life around puberty, stimulated by male hormones from the adrenal glands of both boys and girls. This oil stimulates bacteria which live on everyone's skin and generally cause no problems to multiply and cause surrounding tissues to become inflamed. Have you ever had acne problem before? Acne problem was one of my nightmares when I was a teenager. It is so embarrassing when you have acne on your face. I tried different acne treatments but I can't get rid of them. So my mother brought me to the doctor and the doctor prescribed the Benzoyl Peroxide. Benzoyl Peroxide solution works, but here are some information about this solution that you should be aware of.

-The first thing that benzoyl peroxide does which is tremendously dangerous is the fact that it produces free radicals in the skin.

-The FDA statements about benzoyl peroxide are the second major problem with using products which contain it.

-A third very important reason to avoid benzoyl peroxide is that the free radicals in the skin make the skin’s ability to heal irritation and wounds SLOW down.

-The skin loses its ability to produce natural oils and healthy moisture within it.
