TC - Small Animals - Ducks

for fun and learning

"SMALL ANIMALS" (Pets, Insects, Birds,...)

Lazily sitting on the grassWalking and looking for something :-)

Got these four ducks for my entry this week. I've noticed these 4 ducks outside the kitchen of our quarters in our summer camp fellowship. They always go in four, they sit together, they walk together and never missing one duck when they go. They seem to be friends as they never leave each other. The four ducks stayed together the whole day and it made me take a shot on them.

Got another entry here! For more 'small animals' themed photos click the title badge


Some Summer Plans

Summer brings about fun activities for the family and we have started spending time with the kids with the recent swimming in the cool water of Villa Dominga Resort. The summer breeze and the heat made my kids’ skin look darker now but I told them it’s ok just as long as they enjoyed swimming. I even joked them that it’s an evidence of their fun summer swimming. I’m still looking for some places to go this May for my Mom’s birthday when I came upon Corolla foreclosures of beautiful oceanfront homes. Well that would so nice for those that can afford it because if you own a place like that you’ll enjoy unlimited time in the beachfront.

Now back to my plan, we’re thinking of celebrating Mom’s birthday on a resort as my cousins in the province were requesting too. I’ll consult my brother and sister about this and if plans pushed through we’ll have a refreshing birthday outing for my Mom.


Your Heart Tip#2 - Avoid Over-Using Dairy Products

Well as I've said in my previous post that to avoid heart problems and heart attacks we should avoid food that can be harmful on our body. And one of these foods are the dairy products. Avoid over-using dairy products. Cream and most cheeses are high in cholesterol. Use skim or one percent milk. Much of the appeal of whole milk is simply that you are used to it. After using milk with less butterfat in it, you may find you prefer it. It is less cloying in your throat and, therefore, more refreshing.


Too Much Sun's Heat Can Make You Look Older

This summer is really bringing us too much heat that causes sickness and some skin problems. Over exposure to sun can give your skin irritation and dryness which will certainly lead to early skin aging. I know some farmers in our province looks older than their real age because their job exposes them daily in the sun. Well I know that some of them really don’t want to look older but they can’t avoid it. It made me think that they should use some moisturizers or age spot cream to make them look younger or at least protect their skin from harmful effects of having job in the field.

Maybe that’s the same reason that when I see some of my classmate in my first grader in the province they look so much older than me especially those who work in the rice field or plantation. Those that take care of their skin properly are less affected by the early aging of the skin. Employees working inside the offices are luckier because they’re not exposed to sun while working.


Your Heart Tip#1-Avoid Fried Foods

I've heard many cases of heart problems these days especially heart attacks and the sudden increase in the fluctuation of blood pressure which they call as high blood pressure. Some of it can be due to too much heat in this summer season, overfatigue, vices or sometimes in the food that we eat. I learned that for those prone to the mentioned sickness they should avoid fried foods. They are high in fat and calories.

When shopping for food look for products with a low percentage of saturated fat. It's very important to avoid it. It is better to substitute products that have unsaturated fats in them. Also totally avoid products that contain or are fried in palm oil or coconut oil. Although these oils don't actually have cholesterol in them, they prompt your body to produce cholesterol. Be sure to read the labels on everything so you'll know what to buy and what to avoid. Prevention is better than being hospitalized.
