Awesome #Klout Perks

So far, I received two awesome perks from #Klout and I am waiting for my #Ricola and #Hershey's perks this week. I hope it will come so soon in time for Christmas. I have a sports magazine subscription for a year and the #VitaFrute. The Vita Frute is expensive but, I was given a coupon for two bottles and paid $11 which is alright. It could have been more delightful if it's a FREE coupon.

If you have Klout, promote it and you will get the freebies you'll love. Merry Christmas all.

Relaxing at the Front Porch with my BHTV

This post brought to you by Bright House Networks. All opinions are 100% mine.

The front porch is one of my favorite outdoor place in the house. My husband and I love to sit there before sunrise and at dusk as well with a cup of hot coffee. Well, now that it's winter time, we sit at the front porch with a cup of hot cocoa and watch the amazing display of the horizon. Doing that relaxing moment, we always bring our iPad.

Did you know that we don't miss the morning news even if we were at the front porch? Yes that is true! Make Any Room a TV Room! Anywhere in the house is a TV room because of the BHTV app from Bright House Networks. We are a Bright House Networks subscriber for many years now and we are a happy camper especially with the BHTV service.

BHTV or Bright House Networks TV is an awesome service that they have and we used it regularly. The BHTV app allows the customer to view the HD Programming anywhere in the house but, this will only work within the range of the home's wireless network. Check out the BHTV’s FAQ and if you are interested, why not become a subscriber today. You can use BHTV if you download the app in your iPhone, iPad, and most of the Android phones too. You can also access the BHTV in your home computer. For me, I enjoy the convenience of using the iPad.

Rest in Peace Paul Walker

After attending the Sunday mass today, I spent the rest of the afternoon watching the videos and reading about Paul Walker's life and his charity cause. I thought he was just one handsome and famous face in Hollywood but, after reading the shared condolences from his close friends, those who knew him and has worked with him, Paul Walker was not just a famous Hollywood face after all.

Honestly, I am not an avid fan even though, I did watch some of his movies. But, after knowing all his charitable activities, I became one. Based from what I read from friends and those who knew him, he is a great guy and committed to his charity group: Reach Out World Wide. Heaven must have gained another angel for sure. I am heart broken beyond grief because someone like him could make a difference and now, he is gone and only God knows the reason why.

Paul Walker, thank you for the support and for showing compassion to the places that were hit hard by earthquake, typhoon and tornado. Most of all, thank you for helping the Typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines. Rest in Peace Paul Walker. You will be missed for sure.

#PaulWalker Dead at 40

What a sad day to end the month of November. It was in that I read the news for the first time. I can't believe it. I checked my Twitter feeds and Paul Walker was already trending. Paul Walker dead at 40. This headline must be hard for all the fans. As I was reading the latest news, I can say that there was an uncertainty. Most of the fans insisted that it is a hoax. Until, the official twitter site of Paul Walker publish this:

"It's with a heavy heart that we must confirm Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident...MORE: - #TeamPW "

I tried checking online and saw that Wikipedia already added Nov. 30, 2013 in Paul Walker's profile. Even the local news channels confirmed that Paul Walker died in a tragic accident.

I searched for Paul Walker's Facebook and saw this post as well:

"It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. - #TeamPW"

Rest in Peace Paul Walker. You are a great guy on cam and off cam. Your legacy of helping others is beyond amazing. Thank you for extending your time attending charities to raise funds for relief efforts. In behalf of the Filipinos, thank you for extending your  help to the Philippines. You are an angel and may you rest in peace.

Santa Claus and Christmas Ornaments

Is it too early to decorate for Christmas? I tell you what, it doesn't matter if you put up your Christmas tree before or after thanksgiving. It is up to you and your family tradition. In my neighborhood, Three of us already set up the outdoor Christmas lights. My Christmas tree is up since Sunday and all the Christmas ornaments are dangling loosely and happily by the tree, hehehe.

Each year, I always buy Santa Claus and one favorite ornament on which became our tradition for 5 years. This year, I plan to buy another Santa Claus but, it came with Mrs Claus.

This is Eskimo Santa, cool ensemble he got huh?

This is a mouse conductor named Mr. Christmas, an interactive and sound ornament. Mr Christmas is a voice recognition Christmas Tree ornament.

Here is another Santa but, on a stilts. He is funny because sometimes I let him have a split under the Christmas tree.

I love the color celadon green that is why; I am attracted to this Santa. I may not like his beard but, his whole outfit is very nice.

Okay, that's all for now. I need to take a power nap for tomorrow. Sister- in-law and family from Mississippi is here in Florida and will be coming over for an early Thanksgiving dinner. Hubby and I are excited! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

The Epic Split of Jean-Claude Van Damme

I've had my ups and downs,
my fair share of bumpy roads and heavy winds,
that's what made me what I am today,
now I stand here before you,
what you see is a body crafted to perfection,
a pair of legs engineered to defy the laws of physics,
and the mindset to master the most epic of splits.
-Jean-Claude Van Damme

If you haven't viewed the famous "Epic Split" of Van Damme then, here's the clip. After watching it, tell me, what is your opinion about the stunt? Do you think he uses harness for protection? The video went viral on the Web. #Volvo Trucks has released the video on YouTube showing him doing the splits between two reversing trucks. As of today, it has 30 million viewers since the first released/published on November 13, 2013.
The engineer behind this amazing stunt is Jan-Enge Svensson. The music embedded in this video is "Only Time" from Enya. It is the same soundtrack used in my favorite movie "Sweet November" starring Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron.

Halloween Masks

Okay, these are the masks that we used on Halloween. We did not use it the whole time while giving out candies. We do not want to scare the kids away LOL. This is Yoda and this mask is a bit expensive. This is more or less $35 but, I got this for free.

Believe it or not, this mask is only a $1. I bought this in a dollar store.

This is Jason and yes, this is also a $1 mask from a dollar store.

We only have about 45 trick-or-treaters this year, wondering where the kids go. Last year it was about 85. Hoping that next year, there will be more. How about in your place?

Why Giraffes Profile Became Viral in Facebook

You should have noticed by now that most of your Facebook friends profile has changed into Giraffe. It's all because of the wrong answer they provide to a Riddle that they were tagged or entered into. It is just for fun and this game received a positive response from Facebook users.

What's a RIDDLE
A riddle is a statement, a question or a phrase which have a double meaning. It is a puzzle that needs to be solved and it is really tricky. It requires careful thinking for their solution. It could be enigmas, the type of problems expressed in metaphorical or allegorical. Enigmas are riddles that require ingenuity and careful thinking. A Riddle could be a conundra type which rely for their effects on the question or the answer.

Giraffe Riddle:
"It’s 3 a.m., the doorbell rings
and you wake up.
Unexpected visitors!
It’s your parents
and they are here for breakfast.
You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese.
What is the first thing you open?"

I have my answer and it is correct. Two answers are accepted anyway. What's yours?

The Sleepy Hollow Inn in Disney World

This is the Sleepy Hollow Inn in Disney World in Magic Kingdom. I took the photo because it reminded me of my favorite TV Series Sleepy Hollow on Fox. Do you watch it? If not, you should. It is different because the setting is present time. Full of action, adventure and full of awesome characters. 

Anyway, we happen to pass by here and wandering in this area looking for turkey leg. Want to see how big my turkey leg was? On my next posts, check it here. Thanks for stopping by.

A Parishioner Named Jack

Every Sunday as hubby and I attended mass in Divine Mercy Catholic Church in Merritt Island, right after we opened the door, we always look forward to see the warm and welcoming smile from one of the parishioners who is seated at the ushers' seat. We always occupy on the last pew and this man, in his late 80's is seated at the back. Yesterday, his absence marked the 5th week.
For almost two years of attending Sunday masses on same time, parishioners usually seated on the same area every time. Like us, we are seated comfortably on the last pew. We recognized faces and most of the parishioners are really friendly but not to the extent of asking our names. Well, except for two, a Chinese lady and the man seated at the back. As we come in, we always shook his hands and say good morning.
One Sunday, as we headed to our seat, we shook his hands but, he stopped my hubby and asked his name. The next Sunday, he always addressed my husband by his name which is really nice. It might not be a big deal to some but for us, it feels great that he addressed my husband by his name. The man's name is Jack and he is a sports fan. He loves Football and Basketball. One time, he was talking to the usher about Football and Tim Tebow. His son, a heavy set and tall like him is always his companion and seated beside us most of the time. Jack is very friendly to everyone.
After the mass, hubby said to him, "See you next Sunday" and he replied, "I hope so." We all smile because usually, he would say, "Okay, see you next week".
We were worried for him and we hope he is in good health. May God bless you Jack.
Anyway, the quote above was shared by the musical director of the church. This is a reminder that we have the power to make a good deed. Do it today. God bless everyone.

Bad Weather on a Monday

On our third day in Disney World was totally fun! Why? Inside the park, we saw people all soaking wet of the rainstorm (remnants of #TSKaren) yet, they were still having fun, all smiles and had a great time. Oh yeah! We arrived in Disney parking lot when it's pouring rain so; when it slows down, we brought a folding umbrella with us. Some parents were very creative using the trash bags as rain coats. It was pretty neat.

We went in at 3PM and we drop by at Magic Kingdom, rode the boat, the monorail and twice the bus then, we went to Hollywood Studious. It was raining so bad but, thanks to our umbrella, we were all dry. As we drove home, the skies are still gloomy but, see the yellowish color? That's a pretty rainbow. Actually two rainbows are showing and it was my first time to see two rainbows forming in the sky. Amazing! As we drove the 528, it was raining so bad for few minutes. We arrived home safely and guess what? Our place is so dry.

Relaxing by the Garden

Yesterday, as I watch the NFL in my iPad at the gazebo, I was looking at the bare space by the wooden fence. I was thinking of planting okra. My okra seedling is growing and I will plant them on that side by the fence on the weekend. Hubby loves Okra and I am not a fan of slimy vegies. Okra is certainly not my favorite.

By next week, I will start growing my seedling for bokchoy (pechay). One plant at a time because I am not too thrilled to visit my garden since Summer. Too hot to hang out at the backyard but, it's September so; expect that I will tend my garden more often. Can't wait for cool weather here in Florida.

Plan a Vacation for the Family

Are you planning to have a holiday vacation? If you are working so hard to provide for your family, you need a week or two to enjoy a quality time with them. Take a break from the hustle and bustle in the city and away from your work. Book a vacation away from the city and start looking for Holiday Houses in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Would you like to wake up with beautiful scenery like the photo below? This place is surrounded with mountains and located in a resort town in Otago and the lake is called Wakatipu, an inland lake along the South Island in New Zealand. This lake is the country's longest lake and the habitat of longfin eel, trout and salmon to name a few. If your family loves fishing, this place is ideal for that activity.
If you plan for a vacation in this location, activities will be aplenty such as paragliding, bungy jumping, tramping tracks, and more. Did you know that Queenstown and the surrounding areas were used in the filming of the Lord's of the Ring? Not only that, this place was also used in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Anyway, book your reservation right here and enjoy the breath taking view every day.

There are instances that vacations turned ugly like one member of the family got sick because of the weather. Do not worry because this place is not away from the civilization in fact; shopping center is just nearby. If untoward incident happen like all of a sudden, you got a toothache. The  dentist tauranga nz will be there for you so; there is nothing to worry. Check out this place now and do not worry for anything else.

Do you like pets? There are Puppies For Sale in New Zealand which are cute so; would you like to buy? What breed would you prefer? I like Shih Tzu, Chihuahua and Airedale Terrier Puppy. One of my friends has a Chihuahua. It was super cute and tiny. I like his hair color which is brown.
Anyway, when you plan a vacation and you have a pet, you should hire a sitter. Make sure that they are from a reputable company. That way they can take care of the puppy the right and professional way.

Dolphins by the Indian River

After the mass last Sunday, hubby and I took the route in NASA Parkway and we then went to the boat dock along Port Saint John to watch the dolphins or manatee.

Luckily, we saw 4 dolphins swimming near the riverbanks. I wish they would jump but, they were just swimming towards the lagoon.

Only the fins were showing as they swam further away from where we were.

Hubby and I watch them for few minutes.

I tried to zoom my camera hoping to capture a nice photo but, these all I got. I am happy with all these photos.

Flip Video Recorder

Ever since I got this Flip video, I only used it less than a dozen. This was given to me for Free for a video blog opportunity for Microsoft. I like it but, I am used to using my Blackberry camera for video taking. I decided to give this to my brother.

The opportunity includes an Office Home and Business 2010 software and a good $ payment. Almost three years ago that was and this video cam is still working great.

The package also includes this handy table tripod and I used this from time to time.

In fairness, I love this video recorder and accessory. I want my brother to keep this and I am sure, he will be using this most of the time.This maybe almost 3 years old but, it works great and and still in the box.

Second Day of the Kingdom Rock 2013

The Kingdom Rock where kid's stand strong for God is the theme for this year's Vacation Bible School in one of the churches in Merritt Island. I volunteered as the in-charge for the crafts for the Preschool children. This is Pip's Palace with the Preschool children and the crew members.

They were having a break before the craft and play begins.

As the other mommy volunteer and I went at the courtyard to set up the game called Parachute Pals, the kids were having fun playing in the castle.

They are all adorable, very respectful and behave to everyone. This is the second day where the children taught about Duke, their Bible Buddy for the day.

On this day, children learn that "Family and friends help us, stand strong!"

They love the Aqua Booster craft to do. They were able to learn that when they are down at the bottom, having problems and all; just like the green man, family and friends will always be there to guide and support them. Children learn thing s easy when they are happy and having fun.
