Big Bend Mountain “Toe Art”

Published by:

Big Bend

I call this mountain “toe art” because it looks like it, only this is nature’s own formation of its beauty. This is one of my favorite scenery in the Big Bend National Park in Texas! God is just so amazing! I just can smile looking at it, thinking what did the creator think when He was forming this particular hill and rock together! It is so intricate, detailed and simply exhilarating!

Musician’s friend Online Instruments

Published by:

I love playing my guitar and singing for relaxation. My guitar is left handed and I like it. I bought it for a good deal. It is few years old now. So a new guitar is on my list. The thing with left hand guitar, it seems that it’s only me who can play it, my right-handed family has difficulty, so it came to my mind to buy a right handed one and I will just flip the instrument when I want to play, just like some left handers do. Sometimes things just fall into the right places! Today I found out about Online Instruments at Musician’sFriend.com just when I started thinking about buying a new acoustic guitar! I found the one I want! Now I will be saving for it!

El Paso Scenic Drive

551 The view from the Rim Road over southern tip of Franklin Mountain in El Paso. From my vantage point is the panoramic view of three cities/states in two countries: New Mexico, El Paso, TX and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. I really enjoyed the view! The drive was so worth of the travel experience, when you stand on the overlook rim, feel the winds and see the beauty of the view and the sunset, awesome feeling!

Foldable Music Stands

Published by:

My folks love music. They travel to sing, as a choir group. They also get to sing when there is a community event. And they sing every week, in the choir. Actually they go traditional style, holding the song books in front of them, without any music stand. We just realize now. The church needs new music stands. It will not only be useful during music presentations anywhere the are hired to sing, but since they are portable and foldable it can be used by speakers and lecturers in any setting.

Kitchen Improvement Hardware

Published by:

I am a very grateful and a proud new homeowner! Owning a house doesn’t only give you a place to call “your own home”, it is also a good investment! I think I am just blessed and ‘lucky’ to have bought the house at the right time, when all the businesses and business parks are still about to be built around the area. And while I am a happy homeowner, there are still some upgrades that I want to make. I like the kitchen, and some organizers and appliances aside from the basic ones I have will really make it much better. Working downtown and having to drive through traffic take a lot of my free time that is why I shop online for things like these, to save time and effort. I am actually very glad to have found the ovisonline.com website where I discover that all hardware I need for my kitchen cabinets are just a click away. They have all kinds of organizers you can think of! And the best thing is that they sell for a very good price.

Aboard the USS Texas!

Published by:

USS TexasThe Battleship is 100+ years old! Isn’t she beautiful and so precious? A piece of major world history. The Battleship Texas, USS TEXAS BB-35,
had taken part of both the World War 1 and World War 2 naval battles, and is still surviving until, though it needed some repairs. Docked along the busy Houston Ship Channel about an hour drive from Houston. So we went to see this amazing and monument. It was  very impressive! You get to imagine how it was during the war, what the technology were, and how the sailors live aboard the ship. From toward the shores of Normandy to the Philippines, this battle ship had served the US Navy well. I am so glad we came to her.

iPhone 5 battery replacement

Published by:

iPhone 5 iPhone 5 users, how are your phone batteries doing? If you’re like us here, it is not doing good after few months and such number of charging cycles. In fact, my mom’s iPhone 5 does not charge at all. We have tried buying new and pricey chargers but the issue was still the same – it will not charge and will just pop that charge display for few seconds and then die. Before I would have to buy a new phone though, I wanted to try one more thing –  replace the battery of the iPhone. I bought a replacement kit. So I sit down one afternoon and cracked open the ever so tight phone assembly. It took me a while to get past the housing and casing, but when I did, it was such a relief. So the picture above is what the iPhone 5 looks like in the inside. The screws that hold the metal parts are so fine. My sister bought this phone, and gave it to my mom, and this phone was never opened while in our possession before I pried it open, but I noticed 2 things at once: one metal plate protecting the ribbons of the display was missing, as well as the two screws. Who knows how that happened. But anyway, after I was finally able to undo the very very small screws, I replaced the battery and put everything back in reverse order. And viola! The phone was working again!! I was so thankful, and relieved that I didn’t have to open it again, or that no parts especially the logic board were ruined or affected. Overall, it was easy after having been able to open the casing and undoing the screws. Maybe after charging the battery in so many times the heat kind of melt, expand and un-glue the battery plastic cover because it was so crease up and out.

Promotional gift sets.

Published by:

pensMy sister is a businesswoman, and she is a proprietor of a travel agency. I am very proud of her, and she is doing well. She has lots of customers, old and new. A few times she gives gifts to her repeat customers. It was rewarding to see them happy and grateful even for the simple giveaways, especially ones they would use during their trips. Recently I found out about a great gift set and promotional item that all businesses can use and benefit from, at a really low bulk price- pens, full color at PenFactory.com, complete with free business or company logo! Isn’t that awesome! Two years ago my company’s Christmas gift to us was a promotional cozy throw blanket, and then a nice chocolate box with a lovely logo, of course insulated mugs and cups should be on the list of promotional items. But the good thing about the pens, is that you can bring it anywhere with you, so your business image and name will always be advertised.

The Martian Movie.

Published by:

There are two people at work who asked me the other day why I was ‘dressed up’, when I was just wearing shirt, skirt and pumps. When I think to myself, it is kind of funny. The workmates who asked were the two guys I respect and feel close to. But right. I was going somewhere that day after work, and home, and after changing. I met with a friend who is an expert in Geographic Information System and Intelligence. We would be watching a movie. The Martian. It was great, funny, and thought-provoking. I would recommend it to everyone. I am proud of the USA and the great people who make her exceptional. Houston, we got him!
