Check AnnoyingCallers.com

Have you been receiving calls and you answer the calls only to find out they were solicitors? I think everybody does isn’t it annoying? Hubby told me not to answer any calls especially when the caller ID appears “Toll Free” because they are telemarketers and solicitors but sometimes these solicitors are using regular phone numbers that you won’t recognize. What we do is not answer any phone calls when the caller ID appears to be an unknown caller. You would wonder who are these people calling you and why are they calling you in the first place. Well, there’s a good way to find out about those annoying callers without answering their calls or calling them back. Check those phone numbers you don’t know who have called you and go to AnnoyingCallers.com and enter those phone numbers in the search box and you will find out who and where those phone calls come from. AnnoyingCallers.com is a database of phone numbers used by telemarketers and other annoying callers. The good thing about this website is that you can also leave comments and share information about those annoying callers that keep bugging you. You will also find out that you are not the only person who have been called by these people. Check the website now, I tried it myself and found out that most of the phone calls that I didn’t know were from telemarketers or solicitors, commercial company, surveyor, political ads and non-profit organizations.

Pinay Friend

Just talk to Fe (Pinay friend I met through friendster) a minute ago and we are planning to meet up tomorrow morning at the Filipino Store. We have been keeping in touch through chats and phone calls but haven't met in person yet. She called me earlier but I wasn't able to get the phone right away and so I called her back since she left a message. It's going to be exciting to be able to meet another Pinay here in Grand Junction and the good thing about her is that she is also from Davao City the same city where I grew up with.

Bad knots on my upper back...

Yep, this bad knots on my upper back has been bothering me for a couple of days now. It hurts so bad that the pain goes down to my right upper arm. Hubby tried to massage those knots in my back and it really hurts worst when he push his thumb towards the knot trying to break them apart ans soften the muscles. Last night I have to take advil to ease the pain coz I couldn't bear it anymore then hubby massage my back again. I'm glad when I woke up this morning the pain had settled down and made me felt better. I search online on how to treat bad knots on the back and here's what I found from wikiAnswers.com

"The best option would be a physiotherapist. They will be able to massage the knots out - but even an inexpert massage will help. To massage it out, locate the knot on your back. It will be a small ball about the size of your thumb. Circle the knot firmly - it should be slightly painful to the person. Work each knot for a minute, then move on. Do each knot over twice.

Swimming is also good exercise for the condition as it "works" these muscles. Also try heat pads to lessen tightness in the muscles. And a cream like Voltaren will reduce swelling. It should take about a week to make a noticible difference if the knots are bad and about 4 weeks to completely disappear.

To stop the knots reoccurring or getting worse, examine your lifestyle for the cause of the knots. Is it the position you sleep in? Is it stress? Is it the way you sit at work?"

Best deals on Black Friday

Time flies by so fast and we are only few months away for the Christmas holiday. It’s going to be spending more and buying more for the holiday season. As a consumer, we have to be smarter on how to be able to save more and spend less especially in today’s economy. Hubby and I always take advantage of any sales and discounts whenever possible. I remember when he told me last year that the best time to buy stuffs and items for Christmas holiday is during Black Friday which is the day after Thanksgiving Day where most of the stores are on their biggest sale for the year. Sure enough, we took advantage of the great event, the only thing I didn’t like was waking up so early in the morning and fell in line to get in to the store because there’s a lot of people who were also going for the biggest sale of the year. But thank goodness, now there’s a way to avoid the rush and getting up early for that event because I can get online and be able to check what’s on sale from my favorite stores without the hassle of going from store to store. I could shop online and find out the 2008 Black Friday deals and purchase them and be delivered right to my doorstep. That’s more convenient isn’t it?

Well, check it out guys and see what will be the best deal you could find for this upcoming Black Friday. The site also offers free email alerts to let you know when the new black Friday ads will be posted. Visit their website now and be the first one to know what's on sale this Black Friday.

Soft drinks are factor in metabolic syndrome

Metabolic syndrome, also known as Syndrome X, consists of a cluster of risk factor that singnificantly increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease. In a study of 3,470 middle-age women, Harvard Medical School researchers found that consumption of one soft drink daily-regardless of whether it contained high-fructose corn syrup or artifcial sweeteners-increased the risk of metabolic syndrome by 44 to 50 percent. Soft drink consumption also significantly increased the chances of developing the individual components of metabolic syndrome, including abdominal obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, high blogg pressure, elevated triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol. the researchers wrote, "The high sweetness of diet or regular diet soft drinks ,ay lead to conditioning for greater preference for intake of sweetened items".

Stop Snoring

Snoring can be so annoying especially when you keep on hearing it at night. It would cause sleep deprivation to snorers and to those around them. There are a lot of causes as to why one snores and some of them might be due to: Throat weakness, causing the throat to close during sleep. Mispositioned jaw, often caused by tension in the muscles. Fat gathering in and around the throat. Obstruction in the nasal passageway and could be a symptom for sleep apnea which hubby has. I am glad that he was able to find out how to stop snoring through his doctor’s advice to use CPAP (Continues Positive Airway Pressure) which he puts on when he is sleeping to give enough air pressure so that unobstructive breathing becomes possible and it really helped a lot getting rid of his snoring while he has it on when sleeping. He is loving it too because he could sleep good and he won’t be able to hear himself snor.

I'm Back....

I have been away in the blogosphere for four days since I just started my CNA Training this Monday. My first day in class went pretty good and I have so much fun especially when we do our lab because our instructor was very funny and has a sense of humor. So, everyone of us in the class keeps laughing every now and then which makes the class more interesting. I got 100 % in my first quiz which made me feel so good about myself and hubby was so proud of me too. Ha,ha,...Well, most of us in the class got a perfect score though.
It's my last day in class for the week and we got off earlier today so now I'm back blogging and start chasing for opps again. Thanks everyone for visiting my blog these couple of days. I will be visiting you back.

CNA Training

I have been waiting for my CNA Training Class to start and finally tomorrow (Monday) is going to be my first day. I am excited and a little bit nervous since this will be my very first time to be in school here in the US. I wonder how it would be like. This will be a free training because I was able to avail of the scholarship which was offered by the Mesa County Workforce Center here in Grand Junction. Every now and then the Workforce Center offers scholarship training and I was glad I was able to grab the opportunity. I only have 4 days a week class from Monday through Thursday at 5 pm to 9 pm which is really nice because I could still get a part time job if I want to.

So I guess I better get to bed now and be ready for tomorrow's first day of class. Good night dear bloggers!

Grandfather Clock



Clocks are always been part of home d├ęcor in everyone’s home and even in some offices and other establishments. It is also use in interior design. A simple home can turn out to be classy and elegant by just adding a stylish clock any place in the house. I remember when I was young when me and my parents went to the store to check for some wall clocks and bought one for our living room. We bought the kind that made sound every hour. That was the very first time we had such kind of clock although it was just a cheap one but added attraction to our very simple living room. One kind of clock that I will never forget and got attracted to it when I saw this very big clock standing on the wall in one of our relative’s house that looks like the photo shown above. I thought that was very classy and elegant. I never knew that there are a lot of different types of clocks sold in the market today until I came across this site the sells different types of clocks online like grandfather clocks, grandmother clocks, mantel clocks, wall clocks and other timepieces. I think this site is the best place online to check if you are looking for the best clock for your home even the Howard Miller Clocks.

By the way, now I knew that the one I thought to be a big wall clock in my relative’s living room was a grandfather clock.

Blood Type and Diet

I came across this article that talks about blood type and diet. Based on the research conducted by Peter D'Adamo , ND, who claims that people fare better (including with weight management) when tailoring their diet to their specific blood types. The following are his advices;

Type A types should basically stick to fruits and vegetables (high carbs / low fat).
They have thicker blood than other blood types, a sensitive immune system,
and should not consume dairy products, animal fats and meats. They are at
a heightened risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

Type B types should consume a balanced diet (fruits and vegetables, grains, fish, dairy, meat,
but avoid chicken). They have the best chance of bypassing or overcoming
everyday types of diseases, including heart disease and cancer.

Type AB types should consume a mostly vegetarian diet, and only on rare occasions some
fish, meat (no chicken), and dairy.

Type O types should basically stick to a high protein diet (including red meat), low carbs, and
enriched with fruits and vegetables. They should limit the intake of wheat germ,
whole wheat products, corn, and avoid dairy products and most nuts. Type O types are commonly affected with hypothyroidism, high stomach acid (leading to ulcers), and thinner blood with greater resistance to blood clotting.

I have a Type A blood and I think this information is very helpful. I should be more careful with the foods I ate and be consuming more on fruits and vegetables.

“Touch everything except my hair.” I heard this pick up line said by one of my classmates back when I was in college. She said these words when someone touched her hair. I guess she was just too protective over her hair not to get messy or maybe it was her way of flirting the guy who touched her hair. Well, that was probably one of her flirting abilities. Some people have something what it takes to get someone’s attention while others are too shy to get noticed. Do you want to find out your flirting skills?

Heavy Rain

Heavy rain pouring down.

The white stuffs are the little chunks of ice.


It was raining heavily last night, it started raining right after hubby came home from work. He was calling me to take a look outside and see the rain pouring down and to his surprise it's not just rainwater but there were little chunks of ice that dropped on the ground. Then hubby told me to come and see the hail quickly so hurriedly came running to the living room and looked at the window and sure enough I saw those little chunks of ice. It was the first time that it rained heavily that was during this summer season. We also got loud thunder and much lightning. Then hubby said he wanted to go out and eat somewhere. I said, if he was sure to go out and drive in the middle of the stormy weather. He said he wants to take me to this oriental restaurant that I haven't been too. So, we went out and started driving, the downtown area was already flooded and everytime cars pass by us we get splashed. Hubby was enjoying it so much to see the heavy rain pouring down the valley and I told him it made me scared especially when it thunders and when I saw the lightning. He said, I should be used to it as I came from a tropical country like the Philippines who always get a lot of rain, thunder and lightning. I said, yeah but everytime we got heavy rains, thunder and lightning I'm always scared. For him, it was fun and exciting because he was used to it since he grew up in Florida.
