Josh’ Talents and Skills

School is nearing the end of the first quarter and I’m wondering how my boy will be ranked. His adviser has some good remarks on him being always attentive and fast in understanding their lessons. He’s the leader in some of his subjects and he doesn’t have any problems on his assignments and projects. I’m just not comfortable with him being so cool and relaxed as he’s also like that last year when he didn’t qualify in the honor roll. Anyway competition is really tough now as they’re all chosen and ranked according to their grades and I assume they’re all outstanding in their former years.

We actually don’t pressure him to be in the top 5 but we always remind him to maintain his grade so he will not fall under the stratified sections, as of now he’s in the first stratified section which is the cream or pilot section after the Science class. We just enrolled him in the public school because it’s more competitive and my husband will be teaching there too hopefully next year. It’s better if Josh will be in the same school as his Dad so he can be well monitored and taken care of. He’s turning 13 next month but he’s still such a young boy in some of his ways. 

One thing I like about him is his very smart moves and thinking being so wizard-like when it comes to computers especially in codes and in some mobile software. He just learns it all by himself, always researching about things and absorbs data so fast you will wonder if he’s really 12 only. He’s also crazy about drawing cartoon images and playing musical instruments. His favorite instrument is keyboards and told me about kurzweil keyboards at wwbw.com which he fancies. My little boy turned bigger boy is growing up very skilled, talented and interested in everything that challenges him including writing journals. Now I’m taking extra effort in teaching and guiding him on whatever he wants to learn and things he puts his mind on so he can be the best of what he wants to be in the future.

DIY Book Lamp

Want something functional and yet affordable?  Well this isn't at all expensive because you only choose some of your old books to form the body of the lamp then put on the regular lamp we used to have.  For the students it will always remind them to read their books daily even without assignment and for others who just find the need to use the lamp.

This is quite unique, very functional, creative and of course nice idea for families with flair for reading.  Might consider doing one of this kind.  I'm sure the kids will love it and the idea of the book lamp.  There are so many things that we can make out of our old and unused things.  We just have to be creative and keen to designs.

4 Practical Reasons to Invest in Your Own Business



Many people will invest in their own businesses in the hopes to make more money. Although this is a worthy endeavor, it shouldn't be the only reason behind starting a business. In fact, you may find a great deal of value by running your own company beyond profits. It can be an experience that will travel with you throughout life and can teach you a great deal about yourself as a person.

Sense of Pride

Pride isn't a bad thing, as long as it's kept in check. You will develop a great sense of pride in yourself as well as the business. This is especially true if your idea is a successful one. It may be a great feeling to wake up in the morning and feel good about what you do for a living.

Exploring Your Potential

You never know what you can accomplish until you try. Investing in your own business gives you a chance to explore your potential as an owner. It will also give you a chance to learn many things about yourself as well as the business world. It's these kinds of experiences that can impact your life in profound ways ranging from personal to professional lifestyles.

Doesn't Have to Be Expensive

Owning a business doesn't have to require hundreds of thousands of dollars in the bank. In reality, there are several that you may start immediately with little investment such as mall kiosks. Before you put up collateral for a loan from the bank, take a closer look at your options. You may have everything you need right now. Of course, this may also be dependent on what kind of a business you wish to start in the first place.

Working For Yourself

When you put time in at a traditional job, your efforts are working towards the success of someone else. As your own boss, you work for yourself. All of the success of the business centers around your efforts to keep it going. This also means that failures are solely your responsibility. Be willing to learn from your mistakes and you can improve the future for your company.

Running a business has potential to secure your financial future. Then again, it might not. However, the experiences you gain will last you a lifetime. Before you focus purely on whether the company is profitable or not, take a look at what you've gained as an individual. Not all successes in business are wrapped around how much money you can make.

Nursing Home Care for Our Seniors


We all love our elderly loved ones in our house and even though they’re old they still provide guidance and inspiration to us. We need their presence as they’re able to give us advice on many facets of life that they’re already gone through. They can give their time-tested opinions by way of sharing their experiences and lessons learned throughout the years. As they’re old already and not the usual strong person who gave us their time, attention, assistance and strength when they’re younger it’s our turn now to give them back the love that they’ve showered us when we’re young. We should be able to care for them and give all the things that they need now especially the best assistance on their daily living.

If we’re not capable of giving them all our time because we’re working we can hire professional services which can give them proper nursing care in short and long term arrangement. They have staff of professional and experienced nursing aide who has the right attitude in caring for seniors. Their background and references were also of good character and can be completely trusted upon to look after our elderly loved ones.

If our elderly wants to stay in home and still have the best nursing home care we can avail assisted living facilities  for them which offers assistance on our seniors’ everyday activities. They can help them in preparing meals, keeping the house clean and tidy, washing clothes, in dressing up and various house chores that maybe required by our seniors. Best of this arrangement is we’re assured of endorsing our seniors to qualify and trustworthy nursing aide instead of hiring care giver that we’re not so sure about when it comes to credibility, background and references. We love our seniors and they deserve the best of care.

5 Ways to Enhance Online Buyer Experience


Online sales continue to make up a large portion of income for businesses world wide. As the competition continues to grow, you need to come up with ways to set yourself apart from those who would love to take your customers. You need to provide a unique experience for online shoppers. Otherwise, it may be difficult to keep returning consumers or attract new ones. Here are several ways you can enhance the buyer experience while adding to your success.

Online Chat

Studies show eCommerce sites using online chat have a greater chance of making a sale. Most of this is because of the security it offers customers. People are more likely to trust a business that can be contacted directly. Live chat gives those buyers that level of comfort.

Shipping Methods

Consumers want their products shipped as quickly and safely as possible. This is especially true depending on the industry. For instance, some medical supplies may be incredibly sensitive to the rigors of transit. Offering services such as medical package testing may be the convincing point for a prospective buyer. Make sure you deliver the best shipping methods possible regardless of your industry.

Follow-up Email

Never underestimate the value of a follow-up email. Marketing campaigns which use this method often experience the highest return-on-investment. This is because it costs next to nothing to send a quick message. This also lets the customer know that his or her business is appreciated. These consumers are then more likely to make future purchases from your business.

Mobile Responsiveness

Most business sites today are ready for mobile devices. However, the actual design may not be ideal for customers. Just because your template is mobile-ready doesn't mean it works like it should. Optimize the site in every regard when it comes to smartphones and tablets. These devices are used more than any other for browsing the Internet today, and you want to make sure those people are seeing your site like they should.

Offering Variable Payment Types

Offering different kinds of payments allows more customers to buy your goods. Not everyone will use the same methods. Expanding how you accept money may mean the difference between a sale and an abandoned cart. This will prevent you from alienating your buyers who may used different payment methods.

Whether you have a brick-and-mortar store location or depend purely on Internet sales, you need to remain competitive. Take time to discover ways in which your business can make the greatest impact on consumers. As the competition online is great for virtually every industry, it's all about offering something no one else has.

Heading To The Urgent Care Office


When you don't feel that you have to go to an emergency room but are still sick or have a minor injury, consider visiting an urgent care office. They are a doctor's office and emergency room combined as there are a few doctors and nurses in a smaller environment who will provide the care needed in a shorter amount of time than if you were to go to a hospital. A 24 hour urgent care Cypress TX office normally has most of the equipment to perform the tests that are done at a hospital, and if there are any issues that need further treatment, then a referral can be made to another doctor. Transportation can also be made to get to a hospital in a short time if the symptoms are severe or if test results are of a concern.

One of the benefits of an urgent care office is that it's usually open every day where a doctor's office is usually only open Monday through Friday. You don't need an appointment for most urgent care offices, but you might want to call ahead to see if the office has a long wait, especially if it's during a time of the year when more people are sick or if it's after work hours as this is usually when more people will go to the office.

When you arrive at the office, one of the things that you might notice is that the doctors typically won't see patients on a first come, first served basis. Patients are often seen by the severity of their symptoms. From allergic reactions to cuts and burns, urgent care offices are capable of handling a large case load. There are some issues that you want to get examined by a hospital or your medical doctor, such as chest pain or severe headaches that are accompanied by nausea or vomiting. These could be symptoms of a severe health issue that would likely end up with a visit to the emergency room after you go to the office. Most providers can perform blood work and other lab services to diagnose certain illnesses, such as strep throat.

Selecting The Best Scrubs For The Money


If you work in the medical field, then you likely have to wear scrubs to work. These are uniforms that feature pockets and other components that make it easy to carry all of the supplies that are needed for interacting with patients. Some offices require that you wear a certain style or color while other offices might not say a lot about the type of scrubs that you wear as long as you are comfortable. There are a few things to keep in mind if you are looking for cheap scrubs to save money or if you want to make the best decision when it comes to the clothing that you buy.

When you're looking at the material of the scrubs, find something that is easy to keep clean. Cotton is soft, but you might find that lint is attracted to it, which means that you will have to spend extra time keeping your clothing clean. Another thing to consider when you purchase scrubs that are less expensive is that the color might fade faster than with scrubs that cost a little more money.

Most of the inexpensive scrubs aren't as trendy, but they might be more comfortable. This is something to keep in mind if you are moving around a lot during the day. You want to wear something that gives easily instead of clothing that is stiff. If you sit at a desk in an office, then a trendy set might be something to think about as you want to make a good first impression for the patients who enter the office. However, these will end up costing more money as well.

There are a few different designs when you look at scrubs. Some of them have a simple V-neck while others wrap around the neck. It usually doesn't matter about the design of the scrub top as long as it's something that is suitable for the office and something that you are comfortable with wearing. A V-neck design is often the least expensive. You can easily wear a shirt of a solid color under the top in the winter for added warmth without too much of the shirt showing.

Spiral Staircase for Modern Homes



Some of the homes I see now with most of my brother's residential projects are designed with modern architectural styles so totally different from the homes we used to see.  Since there are modern innovations now on built-in kitchens and in some areas of the house the interior decorations are made in such same setup to harmonize with the modern stylish designs.  Well it seems that it doesn't end up in the major areas of the house that even home staircase are gearing up to a modern style different from the traditional ones.

This spiral staircase made of high quality wood material would be mistaken for just a display only as it would not fit a home with kids because it's steep and revolving in such a dizzy style.  The staircase is designed beautifully for the eyes only I suppose as this one would not be perfect for daily activities.  Well this one would be perfect if the room upstairs is just an attic or a special room where activities is not always busy.  I'm really thinking if it's for a home or for an office only but I like it.

Escape Nook When You Want to be Alone




Source: tumblr.com via Race on Pinterest


Did you experience wanting to escape from the busy activities of your daily life but can't find an area where you can't be disturbed?  Well I've felt that kind of feeling before when I was working at home and I need a good sleep from working overnight.  Our house has plenty of visitors during those days and I just had to sneak to relax and sleep. I was lucky that we have a room in the upper floors where no one can think that there's somebody sleeping there.  It's my girls' room but they're not using it anymore instead it stores our old things.

Well the idea of the picture above suggests a good place to escape from everyone.  It looks like a small warehouse room that I think no one will ever guess as a little nice place to sleep.  With this kind you can say goodbye for a while to busy world and sleep as long as you want, just don't let the little kids know about this as they'll surely invade this lol.

We always want an organized study nook clear of unnecessary stuff but sometimes we have so many books to keep and store.  One solution is to maximize your space in such a way that you keep it in style so it will not look cluttered and messy.  Looking at the picture above helps me to think of ways on how to help my kids arrange their study area with lesser space and maximized arrangement.  The study lamp is also cool and slim.

Adding Up Music Room

My friend is having some additions to her house and this time it will include her dream music room which she will fill with her favorite audio and video appliances together with her collection of old and new musical instruments. She loves playing guitar since college days and until now on her free days she still find the time to strum some music pieces. It’s in her blood and no matter how busy her life she is she will do it even on limited time only. 

Now she’s thinking of investing on some music instruments and accessories and adding it on her future music room. She would love having special accessories on her guitar, keyboard and some other necessities like summing mixer, audio gadgets and the likes. I’m really convinced that if you’re a musician you’ll stay a musician forever.

Japanese Home Decoration


I’m used to seeing stylish interiors in many of my brother’s residential projects and I also visits furniture stores a lot because I love decorating homes and planning my own future home. Of course it will also be on the same place but I’m dreaming of building a new home or maybe a new renovated home with my designed plans. 

Well I always find Japanese home decoration unique, simple but very beautiful. I noticed that they decorate their homes with full maximized space meaning they don’t just let large space to be wasted. They limit their furniture to what they only need. 

If you will have the chance to observe they always have low and large table called kotatsu with small heater underneath just like in their restaurants. Kotatsu is where they meet, talk, eat and bond as a family. Then you’ll notice that they’re fond of having floor mats called tatami made of woven straw in several of their rooms in which Japanese step without their shoes.
