Tropical Storm Isaac Heads to New Orleans

I have been to New Orleans and boy, this place has not fully recovered from the devastation brought by Hurricane Katrina and in few hours, Tropical Storm Isaac will directly hit this place. What a coincidence because exactly 7 years ago ( Aug 29, 2005), Hurricane Katrina hits hard New Orleans.

The threat of TS Isaac grows by the minute and I hope the people living in the coastal areas of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana take the warning seriously.

I saw the news just a minute ago showing HardRock Biloxi sign which says "We are open and Rooms Available". The Beach Boulevard area in Biloxi is not the safest place to check in especially when TS Isaac is heading that way.

The house of my late father-in-law was one of the houses which was completely destroyed during Hurricane Katrina. It was a scary situation but, thank God, there was no one in the house. They went to Mobil Alabama.

All our relatives in Mississippi are already bracing for the TS Isaac. My sis-in-law lived near the beach so; she told us that she will be going to her sister who lives inland.

Anyway, I hope the storm will weaken and that everyone will be safe.

Prince Harry, the Lovable Rogue

Have you seen the latest scandalous picture of Prince Harry? Well, it's all over the Internet. If you want to see it, check it out at TMZ Website. They posted genuine photos of Prince Harry .... butt naked.

It was blurry but, Prince Harry was in full view naked and cups his private (*o*) hehehe while a naked woman was hiding at his back.

The next photo, naked Prince Harry appeared as hugging the naked woman from her back therefore, his naked butt was exposed!

Prince Harry was in Las Vegas last Friday for a Charity event. He stayed in a VIP Suite with friends and invited guests. He being naked is part of the game called strip billiards. Oh, Prince Harry is all over the news in print and on TV Online.

Got a question though, why most of the comedians in the evening shows said : "two balls with no pockets"? Can anyone please tell me LOL?

Crowd at Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day

Hubby and I went to Chick-Fil-A to support the call of Gov. Huckabee: Aug. 1 is Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. Majority of our friends respected Chick-Fil-A's stand on traditional marriage. According to them, it is their right to express what they believe in and they stand for it. Huby and I prefer KFC or McDonalds when we are hungry but, on this day we showed our support on Chick-Fil-A.I took a picture of my husband with Chick-Fil-A employees and hubby sent them to his "close" friends. Alas! One friend was offended because according to her, she had gay friends. I too had gay friends in fact, most of my close friends are gay but, they are intelligent enough to understand that the "gay issue" in connection with Chick-Fil-A's belief on marriage was POLITICALLY MOTIVATED! Come on now, Chick-Fil-A did not condemn gay people who visit in their restaurant.Look at the long lines of customers showing support. They are not here mainly to eat, they are here to support the freedom of speech. I respect and love all my gay friends and I don't judge them for who they are. When they know that I support Chick-Fil-A, they are not offended. This is a matter of RESPECT. Do not listen to a politically motivated issue. Know the facts.I hope everyone will be happy and respect one another. Enjoy your day everyone.

Filing A Bankruptcy

There are two families that I knew who filed bankruptcy and their lives are so much better now compared before. They maxed out their credit cards and missed paying their mortgage. There is no way out but to file a bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is their only option and since they are honest debtor, they filed bankruptcy to make a fresh start in life by relieving most of their debts.

Bankruptcy is designed in favor of the debtors to repay creditors in an orderly manner, reorganize their debts and establish a plan so that they can repay them. An honest debtor files a statement about their assets, income, liabilities as well as the information of all the creditors stating how much they are owed.

Anyway, if you file a bankruptcy, creditors cannot bring a lawsuit against you or even make wage garnishments. If you do not like debt collectors because they are rude and they demand your payments, they can't do it anymore once you file a bankruptcy.

In most cases, if there is no money left from the debtors to pay the creditors, the debtor can be granted a discharge of most debts without objection therefore; a debtor will no longer be liable for repaying the debts.

When you need a legal representation regarding your debts, find a bankruptcy attorney in your area. I am sure you can find a debt relief solution and if you live in Nebraska, Skrupa Law is there to guide you in filing bankruptcy in nebraska. Litigation in the bankruptcy court is conducted like the civil case which will be handled in the district court. There will be a pretrial proceedings, settlement efforts and a trial so; you might need a bankruptcy attorney.

The Language of Flowers

I saw this poem in one of the magazines that I subscribed and do not know the author. It's nice to share it to all of you. We all love flowers don't we?THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS

In Eastern lands they talk in flow'rs
And they tell in a garland their loves and cares;
Each blossom that blooms in their garden bowr's,
On its leaves a mystic language bears.

The rose is a sign of joy and love,
Young blushing love in its earliest dawn,
And the mildness that suits the gentle dove,
From the myrtle's snowy flow'rs is drawn.

Innocence gleams in the lily's bell,
Pure as the heart in its native heaven.
Fame's bright star and glory's swell
By the glossy leaf of the bay are given.

The silent, soft and humble heart,
In the violet's hidden sweetness breathes,
And the tender soul that cannot part,
In a twine of evergreen fondly wreathes.

The cypress that daily shades the grave,
Is sorrow that moans her bitter lot,
And faith that a thousand ills can brave,
Speaks in thy blue leaves "forget-me-not".

Then gather a wreath from the garden bowers,
And tell the wish of thy heart in flowers.

Chick-Fil-A Visit

Chick-fil-A and Dan Cathy became a household name in the US for the past weeks. I am not a fan of Chick-Fil-A and I do not know Dan Cathy. But, when some politician started bashing on this good business for making a stand on "traditional family", hubby and I made our decision to visit Chick-Fil-A and support them for having the courage to stand for "traditional marriage". If that is their stand, let us respect them.

I have so many gay friends and I love them dearly. I wanted them to be happy too and I respect their choices. As long as they love each other and live in harmony with everyone, I am happy for who they are. They raised good children and they are good parents to their children and I admire them for that.
I just don't understand why some politicians had to jump into conclusion that Chick-Fil-A's stand on " traditional marriage" is hating gay's rights.

Here is Chick-Fil- A's Response to Recent Controversy:

Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business.

The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect –regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.

Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.

Scion FR-S

Are you fascinated in driving a sports car? If you are familiar with Toyota's Sports 800, 2000 GT and Corolla GTS then, you know the performance of these fast cars. The first production of sports car by Toyota was in 1965 and it was Toyota Sports 800. The engine was sufficient to power at 70 km/h or 45 mph around town but, on a race track it was up to 160 km/h or 100 mph. It was a very popular sports car in the 60's. Then, the next generation of sports car the 2000 GT in 1967 which is said to be capable of reaching 217 km/h or 135 mph. After that, the Corolla GTS with 112 horsepower (84 kW) @ 6600 rpm, Torque is 97 ft lbf (132 N·m) @ 4800 rpm and now, it is getting better with Scion FR-S which has 200 hp and 151 LBs Torque.

I just love the Firestorm color of this all new Scion FR-S which was out in June 2012. Check out the info graphic below and see how it evolved from the older Toyota models. I am not a fan of sports car but, the color and the sleek design truly is a remarkable! Now, I want to drive this baby too!

Gabby Douglas: Hair Bashing, Seriously?

She was just amazing! She made a record on Olympic Games 2012 being the first African-American and first woman of color in Olympic History to become an individual all-around champion. Gabrielle Douglas became the first American gymnast to win gold in both categories: Individual All-Around and Team Competitions in the same Olympics and take note, she's only 16 years old.I was so proud of her performance and she is just one petit lady with incredible athlete prowess. As I was watching the game, I was also busy with my Facebook chat and reading Twitter updates. Here comes the bashing of Gabby's hair from the "few" African-American who probably never accomplish anything in their lives. Seriously?The girl has just won an Olympic GOLD medal for crying out loud! I just admire her contagious smile; she's so confident in all her execution, amazingly poised and though her hair might not be perfect for "few" African-American so what? She made USA proud with her elegant performance in London Olympics. At 16, she accomplished more than most of us did! Enough with hair bashing, cheer and be proud of Gabby instead.
