Sending Flowers

For women it’s always nice to receive flowers regardless of age whether you’re a teen, a single woman, a married woman or even the seniors. Flowers are symbol of affection and care so if you received a single rose, a dozen or a bunch of flowers you’ll always have a nice feeling of being thought of and cared about. I’ve received flowers in variety of kinds but it’s always the white roses from my husband which makes me feel loved and special. Maybe it’s the giver that’s making it special but whoever is the giver it’s always the thought that counts.

I know many women out there will agree to me that without flowers it wouldn’t be so sweet and special especially if it comes from your special someone. Now in this modern times it can also be ordered online here so those busy fellow who wants to send flowers but don’t have time to go to flower shops can send their love through flowers anytime. With this there can be no excuses for those who forgot to send flowers because you can have it hand delivered, delivered by flower shops or delivered through online orders. Such convenience!

How to Put Interns to Work for Your Company

If the idea of having college interns working for your company makes you roll your eyes, perhaps you haven't yet developed an effective program to capitalize on their skills and expertise. College students bring energy, enthusiasm, creativity, and a fresh perspective to their internships. Consider the ways you can maximize the use of interns in your organization.
• Turn them loose on a video project. Let your interns create a lighthearted video promoting your company. Feel free to set out whatever ground rules are appropriate for your company and industry. You can also talk to them about the "story" you want the video to tell about your company. Perhaps you want a video that shows a different side of your company or a segment that gives a behind-the-scenes look at your staff. Then, step back and let them get creative with this fun project.

• Let them whittle away at your wish list. Almost every manager has a wish list of important but not urgent projects and tasks that regularly get pushed off. Why not select projects from that list and let an intern handle them? Some of the tasks may be simple enough that, with a little training, an intern could get them done in a matter of days.
• Ask for their ideas on improving your company's social media presence. Set aside time for your interns to brainstorm new ways to engage existing and potential customers on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media venues. They might have ideas for promoting your company to new demographics that your marketing team hasn't yet considered.
• Use them as an informal focus group. Your sales and marketing staff can learn a great deal about how college students handle their money and make purchasing decisions by talking to your interns. During the focus group, you can learn whether they think saving money is important, whether they handle financial emergencies with installment loans or by asking family members for money, and how they spend their discretionary funds. Improving your staff's understanding of this demographic, its buying power, and how it views money will help them develop strategies for reaching this age group.

• Capitalize on their talents. If you have interns who are talented graphic designers, let them compete to create a new slogan, logo, or ad campaign. You could even post their designs on your Facebook page and ask people to vote for their favorites. Interns who are adept at web design may suggest useful widgets or features for your website—and then design them!

For managers who are willing to expand the opportunities available to interns, there are many benefits. Some are tangible, such as having a viral video featuring your company, while others are intangible, such as the energy and vitality they will bring to the office each day. Share some interesting projects you let your interns do.

Ensuring Yourself and Loved Ones

I received a call from my credit card company offering me life insurance on my card. They’re proposing a very good presentation of ensuring that whatever happens your family will get a sizeable amount. The agent refers to emergency cases like fatal accident, death and other circumstances that may lead to the time that you’ll meet an accident or be incapable of working. People always seem to worry about what their loved ones would be when they’re gone already. I was thinking if they know about the advantage of having immediate annuity where they could be paid in series by their insurance company. Of course it all depends on how much you want for your pension as I would agree ensuring that you’ll have something when you reach you golden age.

Early Preparations

We've started packing up clothes and things for our fellowship vacation in Baguio. I've arranged the little boy's things in his own traveling bag and he excitedly watched me while I choose which clothes he will bring. For my big girls I told them how many they should bring including extras should we decide to stay longer then they showed me and told me that they will arrange it themselves.

When they grew older I began to feel lighter whenever when we're expecting long journey because they can fix their own things. They just need me to approve what they want to bring and assure them that they've packed enough clothes and they're fine already. I even had an easy time with DH as he has packed earlier than us. He's a light traveler and I always envy how he manage to pack just the necessary things and he did it very fast this time.  Well we're 5 days ahead of our travel day and it feels good that I'll not be rushing next week. Really excited!

How to Potty Train Your Child

Part of parenting is making sure that they are ready in every step of the way. Babies and toddlers are a very challenging group. You might find yourself confused and with a number of questions especially when it comes to potty training. Is there really a desired age for potty training? Moms are very much particular with details and they tend to follow the instructions especially in such aspects. There is no official age as to when you should start training your child. However, there may be physical and emotional indications that could tell that your child is ready.

Most parents would start the training their toddlers at the age of 2 or 3. It is because kids could already talk and understand making it easier to communicate with them. Once you can see that your child is ready the next step is to make sure that the entire process will be a nice experience for your kid. Go out and shop for some tools that can help you potty train your child in a fun way. Of course don’t forget to buy his first potty; choose one with attractive colors and pleasing design.

Take it one at a time. Keep in mind that potty training will not happen overnight. It will definitely require patience and a lot of effort. Don’t forget to give your child some positive reinforcements and small rewards when they are making progress. Learn tips on potty training by reading some parenting websites or magazines.

Overcoming Anxieties Over CT Daycare Centers

The reasons why some parents may hesitate to bring their kids to CT daycare centers.

Not all parents immediately welcome the idea of sending their kids to daycare centers. Some dads and moms hesitate bringing their kids to daycare for the following reasons.

· Separation anxiety. Some parents think that sending their kids to daycare causes a lot of separation anxiety for their children. The truth is, most of the time, the parents are the ones that instinctively suffer from it. The mere thought of being away from the kids conjures up ideas of helplessness and sometimes even uselessness.

In many CT daycare centers, however, this is not the case. Children in some centers are slowly trained to become independent and to enjoy the company of other kids of the same age. At the same time, parents are well informed and regularly updated about their kids’ conditions and accomplishments so they remain a part of their children’s development.

· Fear of getting burnt out. Although a few Connecticut day care centers already introduce some learning in everyday meetings, learning is not that formal. Lessons are integrated in games and activities so children never feel the pressure nor do they even become aware that they are already studying. It is fun learning so there’s no danger of burn out. On the contrary, children develop a more positive look on schooling so that they are prepared when it is time for them to move on to a CT preschool.

· Accidents and bullying. A lot of parents become paranoid when it comes to how their children are treated when they’re not looking. Who wouldn’t be? With no familiar adults beside them, and with other kids they don’t even know, it’s not very difficult to imagine how our children can easily play the part of victim in class. But, that’s usually not the case.

In many centers, teachers are specifically trained to be vigilant, to always look out for the welfare of each child, to effectively control the class so each kid becomes engaged in safe and well-planned activities throughout the whole day. Teachers in the center believe it is the most effective way of keeping them away from accidents and bullying.

These fears are all reasonable and practical but they should not stop the children from learning or enjoying learning outside of their homes.

Sleep in Comfort

I had a full sound sleep last night and it made my day light and nice. I just realized how important a good sleep is. I was always sleeping late the past few weeks and when I was stricken by colds and cough it didn’t helped me that I abused my body with few sleeping hours. I’m disciplined with my meal plans and workout but I only sleep for 4-5 hours a day which makes my head ache so much most of the times. Now I’m determined to control the urge to work on my tasks late at night as I can sleep early and wake up at dawn to do my work before I prepare things for the kids.

I promised myself that I would buy a very comfortable pillow that will enhance my sleeping like DreamEssentials.com body pillow which can surely give me comfort in sleeping and ease my back pain as well. It also promotes healthier circulation. I also have problem with stiff neck the past few days and it’s so hard to have it when you’re working. I’ve learned that it can be aligned when I’m resting so when I wake up I will not feel any pain on that area. Anyway this comfort pillow is not only for improving your sleep but reduces head, neck and back pains as well.

Mall Displays and Decors


I’ve passed by the nearest mall near my office and amazed at the decors and displays they have in the whole place. You can really feel that the holiday is coming with lots of booths with pop up displays, stores on discounted sales, plenty of deals and those sales staff in holiday costumes.

It’s actually a common site to me now as every day I get to see those but it still amaze me how they can put thousand of lights on the entrance. I’m thinking how much would they be paying for their electric bills after the holiday is over. Anyway they’re on sales business and it’s just one way of attracting the consumers to enter the mall and shop. It seems that the more displays and decors they have the more chances that people would shop in their stores.

Sports Option

We’ll be going again to our hometown province first week of next month and we’re all looking forward to that day. We will attend the wedding of my cousin’s son and have swimming afterwards. We’re planning to make the most of our travel there and to bond with our cousins there also. We love to be with them again since we’re always there only on few occasions now due to busy schedule. Mom is getting old and she’s missing her hometown, her nieces and nephews, grandchildren, relatives and lots of friends. Some of her friends passed away already and she wants to visit those who were still alive. I guess it’s really hard for someone to leave the town you’ve grown up and that’s what happened to my Mom. We relocated to our present residence now since I was 7 years old because my father lives and works at the same town.

Now that she’s at her prime years she loves reminiscing the past and loves to reunite with old colleagues and friends. Anyway I’m thinking what other sports we can play at the province aside from the usual games we played there. Upon looking at some pictures of my friends who loves shooting sports I learned that they’re playing Airsoft guns and they’re enjoying it. In fact many of the big boys are having fun with this sport they’ve discovered. Well I’m new with this one and learned through searching that it’s a plastic gun with round pellets which is slower in speed compared to real guns but a bit painful when hit. It’s a safe game because it can’t kill or cause bleeding injuries.
Well one can wear protective gears when playing airsoft guns like Airsoft AEG which is the most popular airsoft rifle to avoid being hit and to prevent painful feeling. Stores selling safety gears recommend full face shield like a mask, airsoft safety glasses for target shooting and thick outfits to reduce the pain when shot by the opponent. All in all this is a good and enjoyable sport especially for the big boys who want the fun of shooting without hurting anyone. Anyway this one need rechargeable batteries and charger so be sure to bring extra batteries so you will be able to enjoy a full day play with your friends. This is a sport that can be played indoors and outdoors so I guess this can be a good option to play in the province also.

House Cleaning Service Fairfax VA

Tomorrow we’ll have some house works that will consume our time and effort but it will be worth it. We’re looking forward to our day off from office works so we can start removing the furniture, appliances and everything in the ground floor to make way for the installation of new floor tiles.

I’ve requested two to three workers so they will be finished in one day and we can arrange the house again at night.

In times like these I really miss our house helper which I decided to let go few years ago. It’s a real convenience having someone to do household chores for you and assist you in everything you do in the house but sometimes it’s also a burden. Maintaining full-time stay at home helpers would mean not only extra budget but also lots of patience especially if the one you hired is not matured enough to handle the kids and the works assigned to her. We’ve let go of our long-time helper and just hired someone to do laundry at times when we’re not free to do it.

For cleaning the entire house it’s best to hire the likes of House cleaning service Fairfax VA which can do the house cleaning process easy, quick and very convenient for you. They will do the regular cleaning, dusting, vacuum cleaning of mirrors, doors, fixtures, bathtubs, appliances, stairs, furniture, mini blinds and more.

Superior Alloy for Your Electronic Components

DH is into his second year in Electronics and mostly he devotes his time on his on-the-job training. He was assigned as Laboratory Technician in his own university and mainly involved in the repair and maintenance of personal computers, laptops and other gadgets in electronics department. He’s enjoying his time as his professor is very keen on training him on the repair of computers which is a very good skill nowadays.

Managing Office Solutions through Online Faxing

As common office procedure it’s normal for me to receive messages through email and fax as these two are the most convenient and easiest channels of communication in the corporate world. There are audio and video conferencing but I’m referring to regular office communication only. Since I start working I really appreciate having fax machine in the office because it minimize the time spent when you have to send the letter and wait for comments on the letter whereby if you fax it you can just wait until they have comments and they can send it back to you in no time at all.

Replacement Plans on our House


As we’re having renovations plans in the house we’re taking notes of every detail that should be prioritized. We listed down the second floor walls and flooring as the main area to rebuild plus the roof that has served us for three decades now. Our roof has the best quality standard when the house was built and still has the durability but somehow it looks so old now and lacks the style that will improve the look of our house. We have a very big house that can house 2-3 families but since it was constructed for over 3 decades now we feel we should be replacing some major parts that will cost us more if it reached decay in few months or years. Since we’re expecting some financial blessings we deemed it right to improve the structure of our house. We also want to divide it and make it a duplex style house to maximize the big area.

We’ll start at the upper floor and then on the ground floor but we’ll see to it that both terrace will not be moved as it’s beautiful as it is. Having asphalt shingle roofing is such a nice idea but we’ll still be consulting our engineer brother to decide on things like that. Anyhow I’m very thankful to find www.CreativeEnergyExteriors.com to help me find some beautiful ideas on some needed items for our renovation. I know it will cost us big money but it’s worth it to spend on our home where we spent most of our time with family when we’re off from work and free from school. It’s always good to go home to a nice relaxing home with a comforting ambiance.

Reliable Laser Alignment


I’ve never been employed in Industrial Corporation but I have learned some facts about it from my friend who have worked in industrial and manufacturing company several years back. She’s an Industrial Engineer and though she’s not directly involved in machines and equipment she’s very familiar with the staff who works on the maintenance department. There are several things to consider and remember when you have big machines to maintain, repair and take care of. It should be on its optimum working condition so it will work according to needed output result. Machinery reliability requires precision shaft alignment according to my friend and it will save much on the company’s operation cost. It reduces bearing and damage on the seal thus minimizing loss of energy and decreases production downtime.

Aligning shafts should also be done in the least period possible to save on downtime cost and with this it’s highly recommended to use the most popular and economical method of aligning which is the laser alignment from VibrAilgn  as it not only offers greater accuracy but cost savings as well. They offer true position sensing with the use of movable machine and stationary machine laser detectors. Not all laser systems are the same. They also differ in the quality of their work so we must choose a system that is lightweight, compact but rugged and waterproof. When you have the best alignment you can benefit from it with increased reliability, reduced downtime, time savings, lower electricity and fewer repair costs.

Well even if you’re careful with the doctor or prescribed medicine there’s a chance that the medicine has side effects or can cause some severe ailments like what manufacturer of Crestor did to their customers.

Updates with Friends

When I met some of my college friends few months ago we were so excited about learning the updates of our lives that the food we ordered were only half-finished when we parted ways. It’s more important to chat, laugh and talk about current happenings than eat our favorite foods. We were inseparable that night and that’s not a surprise as we haven’t seen each other for years considering that we’re together for 5 years in college. After some hours of talking about families, kids and personal things we asked about our current jobs or if some had resigned already and started their own businesses. 

As expected most of us are into System Support & Documentation Jobs but some have been employed on totally different field like brokerage, administration, finance and other jobs that do not match with our college degree. Well life is like that we really don’t know what’s going to be our real course in life. As for me I’m happy enough with my administration and logistics job in office and my online writing job.

Getting Healthier as You Grow Older

I feel great about my health now that it’s almost a month since I started taking care of my diet again. I feel so different with my set of meals intended to lower my cholesterol and in time lose some excess pounds. It’s not only meant to make me slimmer but to make me healthy and fit as well. With the help of my exercise and workout regimen I think I would not be able to use weight loss pills for now.

I know that it would take me several months to achieve my goal but I’m happy that I have started it and made it my habit already. I’m not getting any younger but I can get myself healthier by thinking of ways on how to practice eating the right food, getting enough exercise and completing needed rest and sleep. I know that if I will do all these things I will not age faster and I will enjoy my kids more.

Planning Ahead of Time

Now that we’re finalizing our plans for the source of our renovation expenses I’m hoping that it will be sooner than we expected. I’m really excited to the point that I personally drafted the floor plan of our duplex-type home and consulted my sister about it. We’re both fond of designing houses and planning the interiors especially now that it’s for our own house. I just can’t wait for our intended renovation on summer vacation because my kids keep asking me about it. 


Well now I’m starting to canvass prices for construction materials, kitchen accessories, bathroom furniture and fixtures like clawfoot tubs by bathsofdistinction, shower packages, sink faucets and a lot more. I have limited budget only so I really need to plan and estimate everything before we start it. It’s always good to plan ahead of time.

Personalized Company Gifts


In business you should take everything in consideration for you to balance the management if you’re the owner. Each department should do their specified responsibilities and should be able to help others when extra manpower is needed. The success of the company relies on the group’s unity and how they manage to share their ideas and contribute their skills and knowledge. Cooperation is needed to make each project successful. Aside the mentioned unity and support from all staff concerned they should be able to think of various marketing strategies on how their business and products be known to prospective clients. 

The good name of the business and the quality of work and services should be advertised in every way possible. As they say what’s the use of having good products if people will not know of the brand. Then when the product has been known and tested the company should be capable of maintaining the trust given to them by their clients. They should think of various customer retention strategies to make sure that their clients would be loyal to them whatever happens. 

Well it’s not that easy but there are many ways that can be done to maintain their contracts like making them feel important and valued. Like when holidays or special occasions are coming companies should think and plan for unique holiday gifts for clients. And what a better way of having them feel special than having personalized gifts for the people who trusted you on giving them products and services. It’s good to see sites like Customer Rave who thinks of providing unique customized gifts like calendars, photo gifts, greeting cards, corporate gift baskets, custom chocolate bars and other personalized items that make the clients feel important and cared for. 

When the gift is personalized it somehow conveys a message that the person receiving the gift is special. It’s also a good advertisement and marketing strategy for the company as every time they see your gift your company will be remembered especially when you’ve wrapped in a very special christmas wrapping paper with personalized designs of your company name and logo. What’s also good about Customer Rave is the ease of having customized gifts because they will do everything from conceptualizing the design of your choice to producing and shipping your gift packages directly to your clients. Well that’s easy, fast and convenient better than traditional way of giving gifts.

Clean Environment Inside and Out

Last few weeks there’s a call from our community workers to help them clean the span of our barangay to prevent common diseases from occurring in our places. We’re located in the national road thus the workers always maintain the clean environment in our place because as they say we’re at the road leading to our municipality. Anyone who goes to municipality would have to pass our barangay first before they reach their destination. We didn’t encounter any problem in garbage disposal because they’re collected daily at dawn. As such we’re reminded that we should not only clean the exterior part of the house but the interior as well to make sure that we’re free from elements and germs that can cause us to get sick. 

This is true because even in the safety of our homes we cannot prevent our bodies from contacting diseases caused by dust, germs and other elements that contaminate fresh air.

Helpful Tool for Easy Health Care Communications

Everywhere I go now I always hear someone getting sick or not feeling well. Maybe this is due to the country’s changing weather. The past weeks and months gave us bad weather condition which brought about respiratory and skin diseases but now I’m noticing a fair weather with slight cooler temperature. This sudden temperature changes made some kids prone to coughs, colds and asthma but we just have to be very careful of what we eat and what we do to combat prevailing sicknesses. In view of this we should also be equipped with contact numbers of our doctors so we should be able to reach and communicate with them whenever the need for their service arises.

Now that there’s a Doximity which allows physicians to communicate faster within their network it’s now easier to locate our needed specialists for certain sickness and diseases like Alan Howell MD who specializes in Infectious Diseases. Well there are plenty of them who are experts in medical field and we’re lucky if our family doctors are members of the network because they would be able to refer us to our needed doctor specialist if their expertise is beyond our sickness. Doximity helps their members to search through their secured directory and the app can be downloaded to your iPhone, iPad, android devices and PC.

Documenting our Kids’ Milestones

I often hear my friends say that time flies so fast with their kids. They were just reminiscing the time when their kids were born and now they are off to college or are starting their own family already.

That is why it is really important to document and preserve those special moments and milestones of your kids. So how can you do that?

1. Start a blog. You can easily start a blog as there are a lot of blogging platform where you can sign up for free like Blogger, Live Journal, WordPress to name just a few. This will serve as your online journal as you create post to document the different milestones of your kids. You can create a separate blog for each of your children or create one blog to document the special moment of all your kids. This is also a nice way to keep your friends and relatives updated with what’s going on with your children.
2. Upload pictures in Image Hosting sites. Thanks to digital camera, we have soft copies of our pictures that we can easily upload to image hosting sites like Flickr, Webshots, Multiply, etc. Not only it will serve as a backup of our photos, but also these sites provide an easy way to share pictures to our friends and families so they can get updated with our life through the photos.

3. Turn your pictures in photo books. Instead of having hundreds of pictures printed, why not turn them into photo books. There are a lot of sites, which offer photo book printing services like Artscow where you just need to upload the pictures to their site and just drag and drop them to the available layouts. This makes for a great keepsake of those special events in your kids’ life. These sites even offer coupon codes and discount vouchers often so it even comes out cheaper than having those pictures printed.

We can never really stop our kids from growing but at least with these keepsakes, we can treasure those special milestones forever.

Best of all I’ve done a lot of searching for online stores that will give me the most competitive rates for my chosen brand. Luckily I was referred by my online friend to her favorite gadget store for three years now. When I asked the price of my chosen digital camera I was happy to learn that their price is very affordable, it’s way too low compared to other stores. Now I only have to complete my funds for my camera and I’ll order it from the online store I’ve found. Can’t wait for my new cam!

Sturdy Gears for Little Ones

My niece’ daughter Iya celebrated her 2nd birthday in Jollibee and it was a very happy celebration for all of us. It’s a stormy day she had on her first birthday leading us to miss coming to their house. They’re living in another town and we only get to see her on weekends or if they’re busy we’ll be able to see her every other weekend. We’re very fond of Iya that when was just a half-year old baby I used to take care of her when her Mom would have to arrange for her teaching job application. 

Now she’s growing up fast that she’s free from her stroller. Her baby stroller is not as sturdy as Bob stroller but it’s also of high quality made that protected and kept Iya safe from all harm when she’s using it last year. Anyway even though your baby gears are good enough you still have to check from time to time how much it can hold or protect your child from meeting accidents.

DH worked on our car this morning and since he’s not familiar with repairing car horns he sought the help of DIY tutorial online. After some moments in learning how to do it he followed instructions and successfully revived the sounds of the horn.

Missing the Old Furniture in Our Province


With the rush of high technology gadgets and ultra modern furniture I have a sudden longing for our rural home in the province. It’s nice to see the wide variety of elegant and stylish furniture all over the mall on my way home because it encourages me to redecorate our house. It also inspires me to think of unique interior decor for the house but sometimes they all seem the same. When I go home to take some rest I just want to rest my back and sit on my Mom’s wooden rocking chair which has the magic of relaxing my senses.

The rocking chair reminds me of our log furniture in my Mom’s hometown province and somehow I missed our home back there. With the modern office furniture I see everyday it’s a respite to see some furniture that would remind me of the nature’s beauty and rural’s charming appeal. Maybe I should plan to visit our relatives there some other free weekends. The kids would surely enjoy seeing and using some natural log furniture.
