"Will you give this to my daddy?"

The title is an eye catching phrase. I am sure most of you would automatically think before you read the story, that this short phrase is coming from an innocent child longing for her much powerful and touches your heart. I am always moved by this kind of story. This message was shared to me by a friend. So, I guess I would have to share it to everybody here as well.

As a Company, Southwest Airlines is going to support "Red Fridays."

Last week I was in
Atlanta , Georgia attending a conference. While I
was in the airport, returning home, I heard several people behind me
beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed
one of the greatest
acts of patriotism I have ever seen.

Moving thru the terminal was a group of soldiers in their camos. As they
began heading to their gate, everyone (well almost everyone) was abruptly
to their feet with their hands waving and cheering.

When I saw the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and
cheered for, it hit me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only red-blooded American who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families.

Of course I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young
unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday for us so
we can go to school, work and home without fear or reprisal.

Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our
service men and women, a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old ran
up to one of the male soldiers. He kneeled down and said "hi."

The little girl then asked him if he would give something to her daddy
for her.

young soldier, who didn't look any older than maybe 22 himself,
said he would try and what did she want to give to her daddy. Then
suddenly the little girl grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the
biggest hug she could muster and then kissed him on the cheek.

The mother of the little girl, who said her daughter's name was
Courtney, told the young soldier that her husband was a Marine and had
been in
Iraq for 11 months now. As the mom was explaining how much her
daughter Courtney missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up.

When this temporarily single mom was done explaining her situation, all
of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second. Then one of the
other servicemen
pulled out a military-looking walkie-talkie. They
started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it.

After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to
Courtney, bent down and said this to her, "I spoke to your daddy and he
told me to give this to you." He then hugged this little girl that he
had just met and gave her a kiss on the cheek. He finished by saying
"your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and
he is coming home very soon."

The mom at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young
soldier stood to his feet, he saluted Courtney and her mom. I was
standing no more than 6 feet away from this entire event.

As the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people
resumed their applause. As I stood there applauding and looked around,
there were very few dry eyes, including my own. That young soldier in
one last act of selflessness, turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear rolling down his cheek.

We need to remember everyday all of our soldiers and their families and
thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it's
good to be an American.

RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing
Red every Friday. The reason? Americans who support our troops used to
be called the "silent majority". We are no longer silent, and are
voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers.

We are not organized , boisterous or over-bearing.. We get no liberal
media coverage on TV to reflect our message or our opinions. Many
Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize
that the vast majority of Americans supports our troops.

Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity
and respect starts this Friday and continues each and every Friday
until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that. 'Every
red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar will wear
something red.'

By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United States on every
Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the

If every one of us who loves this country will share this with
acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family. It will not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it will let our troop s know the
once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever; certainly more than the media lets on.

The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make
things better for you?" is...We need your support and your prayers.

Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and wear something red every Friday.

My Migraine is Driving Me Nuts!

I woke up with a "heavy" head this morning, and my goodness gracious, my migraine is under attack again! :(. I usually get it when my body undergoes a change of hormones...I mean, it's a girly talk, but you know what I mean, right? ;)
Anyway, once I get migraine, it always makes my day bad. It paralyzes me and I just don't feel like moving around. In short, I become super lazy, and what I want to do is lie down and take a nap or sit down and do nothing. Nice life huh? hehehe...Nah! I feel cranky when I have it.
So, my hubby just brought home some food for dinner today because I don't feel cooking..Oh, thank God for having a good and understanding husband.

FDA Lasik Quality of Life Report

Feedbacks are mostly helpful to companies or services to improve more on their craft. In the field of medicine, feedbacks are considered to be essential, either in the forms of surveys and other form of expressions. Take for example the case of Lasik results to patients that have undergone through the said procedure. Lasik is a surgical procedure of the eye wherein a "flap" of the front of the cornea is created, moved aside, then a laser removes the tissue to reshape the cornea, then the flap is repositioned over the treatment area.
USAEyes or Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance, a nonprofit council has recently conducted a CORE survey in which the preliminary results are being presented to the US Food and Drug Administration for hearing today. The CORE (Competence Opinion Relative to Expectation) survey is designed for the purpose of getting feedbacks from patients whether they are getting their expectations from Lasik surgeries. So far, the survey has been mailed to 1,800 vision correction surgery patients throughout the US with a 31% response rate.
Unsurprisingly, majority of Lasik patients are satisfied with the results. According to Glenn Hagele, Executive Director of nonprofit patient advocacy that conducted the study, it was unexpected that many would still have the surgery again despite reporting complications.
Overall, I think this is still showing some positive feedbacks and patients are still highly considering the procedure.

PPP Glitches! :(

I regret to be posting about this, but sometimes, when you almost don't have any opportunities for more than 3 days now, and glitches happens, it's just so upsetting! Today, I have an opp. (colored white) but when I tried to click the opp, the notorious red note says; "You don't meet the requirements blah blahs..." Then why is it WHITE? Oh my! Ridiculous.
Oh, by the way, on the other side of the story, they gave me one which I was able to grab it a few minutes ago. :).

Getting a tracking device such as child GPS is a modern method of protecting our kids. I think this is more powerful and more advanced gadget than the cell phone technology that is equipped with signals which can make the person's whereabouts easily detected.
Let's face it, there are many reasons why we need child GPS today. Although kidnappings seem to be one of the primary reasons why parents need this device, some other cases such as child getting lost in a crowded area, or kids hanging out with gangs, and so on should also be considered.

Top Earners

I made it as one of the top earners for least even if only for a few hours :). Although opps became scarce as expected, seeing myself there can help me boost up my mood. I have at least made a fulfillment in myself. This is my 4th time seeing myself there, and I think the top earner area is one good encouragement for every paid blogger to keep up the good job. Kudos to PPP for that! :)

GrandFather Clocks

The first time I heard about grandfather clocks, I was wondering how do they look like. I know I got clocks at home, but I don't have any idea if I got that kind. Not until I found out the grandfather clocks by type that I was able to figure out how they look like. All I know is that I got many small table clocks and a couple wall clocks. I was surprised even to know when I started counting my clocks at home and there were a dozen of them :) grandfather clocks though. There is one thing to take note however, that grandfather clocks are not only for grandfathers. Many might even be thinking that these clocks are boring and old and doesn't fit in today's modern society...that's a big mistake! Did you know that these clocks are far from old-fashioned and actually considered modern versions of timekeeping? In today's modern technology, modern clock makers create grandfather clocks that fits and consistently designed modern home. They can be used as displays ideally in a grand foyer where visitors can easily see it, as well as in a living , study or library rooms of a modern home. There are also grandfather clocks which really are still present of today which have old designs but still of well known durability, and these are still being used today by our old folks. The last time I saw an old grandfather clock was when I was 10 years old! :) If you want to see more of the grandfather clock collections, there are huge selections to choose from. Most every new clock being sold have low price guarantee. You can save that money in your pockets, and at the same time a free shipping is as well available. They also offer free in-home set up if you need it. You might consider getting good brands such as the Howard Miller brand which is considered to be as a favorite brand by many. If you prefer other brands, keep browsing to find more.

No More Page Rank :(

Google finally took back my hardly earned PR3 for my other blog. I am not sure how long this blog would last for its current PR2 rank. But the only thing I could do now is to at least get advantage of the opportunities for this blog. The more, the better, but rare opps is still worth it. I have thought of converting this blog to a domain name, but I don't want to give up the current PR it has. So, perhaps, the best thing to do is to wait for google to take it back, then I would get a new domain for it with no choice but to start from scratch to build another page rank. This is the kind of challenge paid bloggers are facing, but it's okay. Money is always earned with a "little" of hard work at times. ;)

Free Classifieds

Who does not want free classifieds? Much more to those business companies or people who got business or products to promote, free advertisements are always what they primarily search. There's nothing can ever be like OhSoHandy offers when it comes to classified ads...first and foremost, it's FREE! :). Next thing to that is of course free movie listings, real estates, jobs, personals and restaurant reviews.
And speaking about restaurant reviews, there are some nicer Washington DC restaurants worth recommending just in case you are planning a trip to DC. On the other hand, I have been always looking forward to visit New York someday and it made me so glad to know that there are many steak houses in many of the NY restaurants in there. I love steaks and that make me drool to the max!! :)) OhSoHandy can provide you classified types of restaurants that you might want to go to, depending on what you like to eat. There are huge options to choose from, so you can keep browsing so you can get the idea.

Joining Social Spark not as easy as what you think. At least, that's how I look at it. This is what my impression about social spark after I joined and registered my blogs and they didn't approve it.

First, ...and the only reason :0...your blog should not be showing some sponsored ads (paid posts)...I would like to assume , that includes ads from PPP, etc. I find it ridiculous for them to disapprove blogs that accepts paid posts, and yet social spark has a marketplace of its own. And PPP is even in one way connected with it. By the way, this blog is disapproved from social spark because they saw paid ads in it. Whoa! What a weird idea...
I would like to think, they only want opps coming from their own...after all it is a competition seeing other ads from other sites not coming from them!

Ano ba talaga kuya???ang labo nyo SOCIAL sosyal na walang ningning!

Driving to the Mall!

I got another drive going to the mall for shopping this afternoon. I think I am beginning to get used to it. Of course, hubby is still in the supervising mode. Then, we went shopping for my cardigan and a signature purse! Yey! I love it. :) Then , we went to our favorite buffet restaurant in the mall and had our dinner there. I missed the food there, so I ate a lot again. On our way back home, I didn't choose to drive because I am full. I tend to become so much groggy when full, and I don't want to be tensed when full! :) Instead, I laid down to sleep. Oh, what a beautiful life! LOL!

Your Doctor Says...

Myth: Mothers believe that crawling for their baby is an important step for brain development.

Answer: False

Your doctor says:

Many children never crawl during their growing up stage, and none of the professional developmental charts that assess infant's progress include crawling. What is important is that a child sits up, pulls himself up to standing, cruises and then walks. How he gets around in the meantime can be a variety of creative movement. Like for instance, some children sit in a half-lotus position and scoot backward. Some sit on their behind and bounce from one place to another. Some children roll around the house.
Parents need to be sure to give infants some tummy time so they can learn to roll over, scoot and move horizontally to get at toys. Don't use a walker, which can be dangerous and can impede a child's motivation to get around on his own.

Dairy Foods

Help Fight: Colon Cancer

Eating foods that contain calcium has always been an essential part of a healthy diet. The calcium in dairy products help maintain bone strength and ward off osteoporosis, a common side effect of menopause. New research shows that calcium may also help fight colon cancer.
The calcium may bind to irritants (such as stomach bile acids or some fats) and prevent them from irritating the colon or rectum, or it might have an effect directly on the lining of the bowel. For most people, there is no downside to taking calcium supplement. It's cheap and has few side effects, so why not? But it's important to remember that this is not a magic bullet. There's no substitute for regular colon cancer screenings.

Daily dose: Add 3 servings of cacium-rich foods (for instance, a cup of milk, an 8-oz container of yogurt and a few cubes of cheese) to your daily diet. And ask your doctor if you might benefit from taking a calcium supplement.

Happy Cuddling Moments!

It was just a happy cuddling moments on our weekends with hubby las weekend. As usual, we rented some DVD movies and stayed at the entertainment room with our bucket of popcorn and sodas. So far, we watched 2 movies in one day, and the longer the movies, the longer I can have my head rubs. LOL! with a big bonus of cuddles and kisses! :)
I would often tell hubby how I wish this could be every weekend because at times, he becomes busy on weekends too.

Black Raspberries

Help Fight: Oral Cancer

As a rule of the thumb, the deeper and darker its color, the more nutritional the food, and black raspberries certainly do pack a nutritional punch. These berries contain high levels of cancer-inhibiting compounds such as vitamins A, C and E, folic acid, calcium and zinc. They also contain ellagic acid and anthocyanin, which have been shown to slow tumor growth and reduce the size of tumors in laboratory rats.
Although medical researchers are still currently studying the effects of these natural acids on humans, using a gel made from the berries and applying it directly to precancerous oral lesions to see if it will stimulate normal growth. Although results are not yet available, adding this fruit to your diet can only be beneficial.

Daily dose: Although researchers don't still exactly know how many berries need to be consumed in order to protect against cancer development, the gel used is equivalent to eating about a pound of berries a day. But don't be discouraged-this is one food that is beneficial in any amount. Have a handful of black raspberries with a low fat yogurt instead of ice cream for dessert. Or add a half cup to your morning cereal.

Web Stye Designs for Your Site

One good factor for attracting more traffic to your site is proper web designing...the styles and how they are matched to your site themes. Your web design and style act as the window of the main intent of a website. Web designing needs a lot of careful planning, good concepts and ideas, thinking, language which can help reflect your creativity and artistic abilities.
I agree with Robert on him saying that the main goal of designing and developing a website is to promote business, advertising, publish news, give information, offer online products or ads, education, money, and a lot more. In other words, web designing's main goal should be consistent to what your site is purposely offering.

Gosh, thank God we arrived safe...and alive!!! :)).

Perhaps, Mr. Spring is a little bit distracted from that, lol! The forecast this weekend is that it will plunge back to 40's, it seems we are in the 70's during daytime.
I guess I am getting used to having erratic weather temperatures in America most of the time. Having 4 seasons is a lot of adjustments weather wise. My country has only 2 seasons, wet and dry, but the weather temperature is constant all year. How I wish weather would always be lukewarm all through out the world. heheh...

Fish, Egg Yolks and Dairy Foods

Help fight: Lung Cancer

Vitamin D has anti-cancer benefits by inhibiting the growth of tumor vessels and preventing the spread of tumor cells. Of course, if you smoke, the best way to prevent lung cancer is to quit - 8 out of 10 cases of lung cancer are due to smoking.

Daily Dose: A good way to get vitamin D is through 20 minutes of daily sun exposure, but your ability to produce the vitamin this way decreases as you age. Try to eat foods rich in vitamin D, such as saltwater fish, egg yolks and vitamin D-fortified dairy foods, to make up for what you miss as you get older.

"Down and Blue"

Until now, I can't still seem to get it why I feel so down and blue, since Saturday. My weekend wasn't that good, and my husband was able to detect it. He knows the real me, so he asked me why. I can't even give him the answer and I told him I don't know why I am just down and sad. I suddenly missed my family in the Philippines. He suggested we can go out and eat somewhere else, which I obliged because I was getting hungry too. I got too full. :) He asked me how am I feeling so far. I told him; I am getting at the middle and feeling "green". LOL! So, he told me back, oh, so I need to help you get back on top and feel "pink"...Geesh, that was funny. AT least I had some laughs.
I woke up today with a slight headache, and the mess inside the house started bothering me. I am not used to seeing many mess (that's my hubby's den). I have to throw some stuffs away although I can't seem to touch any of his stuffs because at times he search for things that I already have thrown away! Oh my, what a sad Monday!

On the other hand, Japanese women have one of the highest rates of consumption of soy and one of the lowest rates of breast cancer. Soy is perfectly good to be eaten in moderate amounts, especially if it replaces red meat as a source of protein in your diet.

Daily dose: Use soy milk in your coffee and cereal.

Exercise Matters

If there's one thing most experts agree on when it comes to lowering your risk of cancer, it's that exercise works.
People who are overweight have higher levels of hormones such as insulin and estrogen circulating through their bodies, says Doyle, M.S. R.D. Exercise helps reduce these hormones and lowers the risk of cancers associated with them, such as breast and colon cancer.
Being physically active also helps move food through your GI tract faster, which keeps your GI tract healthy and efficient and prevents irritants from lingering longer than they should.
All adults should be at least moderately active for 30 minutes, 5 days a week. Moderate exercise means being able to walk one mile in about 15-20 minutes. Walking faster or more vigorously active for a longer period like 45 minutes or more is likely to reduce your risk of breast and colon cancer even more.


Helps fight: Prostate Cancer

The lycopene found in tomatoes is one of the most potent antioxidants found in food. The tomatoe's red color is evidence of the antioxidant, and other reddish foods, such as pink grapefruit and watermelon, also contain lycopene. Researchers believe it may not be the lycopene alone that fights the cancer, but the interaction between it and the other components in tomatoes.
Cooking the tomatoes, especially with a bit of olive oil, helps release the lycopene and increase its effectiveness.

Daily Dose: Men should try to eat at least 2 tomato-based sauces and stews each week.

Daily Dose: Plan on adding one cup of raw or steamed broccoli to your diet everyday.

Green Tea

Helps fight: Leukemia, esophageal, stomach and other cancers.

Green tea contains powerful antioxidants called catechins. Recently, researchers in Spain and England used one of these antioxidants to shrink cancer cells in a laboratory experiment. The jury is still out on whether green tea prevents cancer, but drinking green tea is not going to hurt you, especially if it replaces soda or other less nutritious drinks in your diet.

Whole Grains

HELP FIGHT: All Cancers
According to the American Insitute for Cancer Research, a diet high in whole grains is linked to a lower cancer risk. The term "whole grain" means that all 3 parts of the grain kernel (the germ, bran and endosperm) are being used. Refined grains usually remove the bran and germ, leaving only the not-as-good-for-you endosperm.

Daily dose: The USDA recommends that you eat 3 or more ounce equivalents (a slice of bread or a bowl of breakfast cereal equals about one ounce) of whole-grain products a day.

Say What?

Things you never want to hear your plumber say...well, he's not THE plumber, right?

  • "I didn't know that was on the bottom of my shoe."
  • "You don't need hot water for the next week or two do you?"
  • "Wow. My estimates aren't usually this far off."
  • "Holes or not, it's still my lucky shirt."

Well?...find another plumber! :)

Is He The One?

This seems a little bit funny...but I read this one article about getting some facts on who a real plumber is.
Here is the guide to decide whether he is THE plumber or if he is A plumber. I mean, you got to choose THE plumber, he's the real one! :)
When he arrives at your door...
He is: If he looks professional.
He isn't: If you can tell he had a chilidog for lunch.
When he enters your home...
He is: If he puts shoe covers on to protect your carpet and floors.
He isn't: If he gives you the number of a carpet cleaner and says, "You'll be needing this."
When you ask for an estimate...
He is: If he hands you a pricing menu that shows what every repair will cost.
He isn't: If he says, "How about a guesstimate instead?"
When he finishes the job...
He is: If he leaves his work area as clean as when he started.
He isn't: If he glances around at the mess and says, "Looks like you're the one who has a job to do now."
When you ask for an explanation of the problem...
He is: If he gives you a clear and detailed answer.
He isn't: If he says he'll need to speak to his lawyer before answering questions.
