My Future Label Specialist

I know I need labels anytime because I do paper work most of the time. I also need them whenever I pay bills, or return online orders. I have been in a situation where I needed to run to an office supplies store which is 15 minutes away from home just to buy some labels. Of course, the distance is not a big deal, but my time is always like gold! I can do a lot of other essential tasks within 15 minutes.

I work online most of the time and practically buy my own stuff online as well. Then, I saw blanco labels. Just perfect for my needs!

One item that I saw from their products are the labels by the sheet. They are pretty much compatible with Avery brands that I use, so I can actually save better if I can buy them in 100 sheets! I can already use that for a year!

This is one good thing in having labels direct. It is convenient and value-wise, much cheaper than the usual brand I buy at Office depot!

The products are also perfect for my wireless printer at home. It has been a reliable partner ever since I bought it last year. And to think that I have tested printing labels with it, the output is just excellent! So long as I can get the exact size, I am good to go. Oh, and I love the weatherproof labels too. I can use them to send something by box.

These Online labels are heaven sent! Of course, there are a lot of them all over the internet, but choosing the ones with high quality and yet budget friendly prices are the ones that matter most, don't you think? Have a look at the products here if you want to have a close up look on the items.

By the way, I have decided I can buy my printer ink here as well. I do not need to be driving out there and be compromised with my time. Besides, I prefer shopping online, so be it. :)

"Customer Is Always Right!"

Do you still believe in this saying? I still do. I know there are case scenarios when customers get overboard, but the saying is mostly right for people who are looking at customers in a positive angle. In every stores, call it a grocery, department, couldn't just imagine if you don't have customers. Customers are the main reasons why business improves for the better.

Have you read about martin hanaka? If not, you can check about the story on CNN Money Magazine, or just by clicking on his name on this post.

You can learn a lot about the value of focusing on good service towards loyal customers. They are the "life" of your business, if you are a business owner, a business employee, etc.

Upgrade Your Resume!

Are you blaming the market because you have been turned down many times from job interviews? There might be one thing you need to focus on... your resume! 
For the past few years, the best method of practices regarding resume' writing have changed a lot. So, it's probably time to upgrade yours.

You can avoid and/or correct some errors which can now be considered as outdated.

For instance, putting multiple contacts on your resume' can look dated; Just simply state your phone number and email without labeling them as such.

Language cliche's which are commonly used in resume's are now virtually considered to be meaningless. You can skip them and instead use keywords from the job ad that will help you get past the resume'-scanning programs many firms use nowadays.

In some cases, you don't need to be describing past employers. For example, a young hiring manager may not have the same scope of industry knowledge you do, and he won't be able to put your experience into context.

Putting your dates on the left is now considered outdated! That's outdated formatting. You can list years instead of months on the right after your title and the company.

Be specific about projects you've done and name some of your clients if you have given the permission.

So, be ready on your next job interview. And don't forget to relax, smile and be confident on how you market your skills.

Dog Etiquettes, Pros & Cons at The Park

Dog parks are the best place for your furry friend to have social interactions, not only to other dogs but to humans as well. But there are some instances when your dog can create trouble in the park and you (and your dog) would mess up everything, right?

So, at least there are basic simple steps to at least consider when taking your dogs to the park which can be helpful for you and your dog as well.

First, be sure you are obeying all posted park regulations.

Second, never take your sick dog to a park.

Don't bring a female "in season" in or near the park since there are un-neutered males that are more likely to be aggressive than neutered ones.

Don't bring your pet's favorite toys or treats which can create squabbles.

Choose a leash made of cotton or nylon web. Don't use retractable lash because it can cause serious injuries to dogs.

It's much safer not to bring your dogs younger than 4 months old since they are not fully inoculated yet, and may also be easy prey targets for some bigger dogs.

Always pick up your dog's mess and bring with you supplies such as baggies if the parks don't have them.

Learn and be familiar to know your pet's body language such as particular stress signals.

Train your pet to follow basic commands and he will be much easier to control.

Your pet's collar should contain a country license or rabies ID. Let them be micro-chipped and attach a tag too.
Don't leave a choke chain collar on your pet when visiting the park because another dog's tooth caught in a ring during play can cause them to be strangled.

Wanting To Attend a Party?

There are some cases where in you feel you want to attend a party that bad, and yet you are not so sure if you will be invited or not. So,you thought of probably convincing the host to let you attend the party...but how??

It's not bad trying these tips just in case ;)

Of course, the key would be to convince the host that you will be adding some value to the event, and at the same time you know how to ask.
It would also be ideal to have someone approach the host on your behalf. Ask if you can be your friend's plus 1 just in case your friend is invited.

Try to plead your case at least a week before the party. This would help the party host prepare early as well. For a larger party, it's okay to ask the last minute particularly if people are looking for filler at the 11th hour.

If you are invited, don't go crazy at the open bar, brag that you were invited or be conspicuous. Blend in with the crowd and behave! ;).

Providing High Quality Ice Machine Equipment

Imagine a place without ice! I grew up in a tropical climate. And I came from a country where it doesn't get cold and it is always hot all year round. And being in the tropics, the need for ice is just as important as needing water to drink.

In the old days, it must have been so hard for many ice producing companies to supply ice using the old traditional method. But today, more and more ice machine equipment is being developed for the better. Thank goodness for fast developments in technology! It makes everything easier for people to do different things.

On the other hand, there is what we call dry ice. It is considered to be essential as an effective coolant, just like your freezer. Aside from being considered a very effective coolant, did you know that dry ice is also used in cleaning for various types of industries such as the food and pharmaceutical industries? The process is called dry ice blasting and is effective in removing grease, adhesives, oil, coal dust and many other chemical coatings.

Dry ice blasting is also non hazardous and safe because dry ice is non-toxic, thus it is environment-friendly.

It is a much better process as a replacement for the traditional high-pressure cleaning, non-abrasive, and the process itself is not messy because no waste materials are produced during the cleaning.

If you have good dry ice equipment for dry ice blasting, you are on the right track of not only helping various industries but helping the environment as well.

Wanna see more some of the versatile and comprehensive range of products of dry ice blasting machines? You can rely on them for their high quality, ergonomic, time and cost saving features as well as the ease of operating these machines.

Experiencing A Full-Service Limousine!

Honestly, I haven't experienced getting into a limousine yet. I wanna feel how it is to be inside. I only get to see the inside of it on TV's, photos and movies! But who knows, one of our trips someday would require one. ;)

What is good about it, is that it's a little bit special having a limo service comparing it to regular bus or car trips. The fact that they cater to any transportation needs with complete amenities is a unique experience traveling on the road. The st petersburg limo service is worth considering.

I see many companies which use limo service for their employees, particularly in big events held by the company such as seminars, meetings, or big gatherings among employees. It's actually cool to think about it if you will be one of those employees involved! :)

Ipad Mini vs. Galaxy Tab. 2 - Review (Part 1)

Okay, so I got the chance to get the Samsung Galaxy Tab (v. 2) while I was in the Philippines (01/22/13). I've been an Apple user for 3 years now, (and still will be). Last November 3, 2012 I was able to get the Apple ipad mini as an additional to my Apple "babies" of course. ;)

I have to tell it honestly, that I am very much satisfied with Apple and its features, but on the other end, I thought of trying either a Samsung tablet or phone which were the "copycats" from Apple...I don't mean to be rude, but accept it, it was already proven in court! So, be it. Just for comparison, it won't be bad having one. These Samsung products are getting over and beating Apple since Steve Jobs passed away, and many seem to be loving it. Price wise, they are beating Apple, plus the fact that Samsung had extended their gadgets' memories by providing memory cards and SIM cards-enabled phones on their tablets and notebooks.

So, here are my comparisons: Take note that this is not an extensive review. I will only be comparing some features basing on how I look at them and the ease and convenience of using them. I would also be focusing on the apps and features that I use basing on my lifestyle's routine. 

At the first look: Interface

I find the Galaxy Tab much cluttered! A newbie using a gadget such as this might become confused because of too much windows and icons opening. Apple is much more organized. 
While galaxy has apps that can be found in what they called "Samsung apps", "Play store", Apple apps are only placed in Appstore! You also have to consider using the Samsung's "S suggest" icon if you want to check highly recommended apps from Samsung. So, just imagine the clutter. Instead of pushing one button in one place, you have to look at those 3 icons one at a time to look for apps. 
Why can't Google and Samsung combine their apps since they are very much seem to be integrated with Android? right? Well, I don't have any answer yet, but any answers would highly be appreciated as well. ;)


Whoa! There are tons of free apps from Samsung and Google apps. I tried downloading apps like free movie watches...some crashes and just hang up on my tab, and some are just flooded with ads! There are those free apps from Google (Play store) that lead you to Google search and when you check on the links, they don't even look secure!...No wonder why Samsung tablets are very highly prone to virus, unlike Apple ipads! 
Apple apps are safely secured in the Appstore, which is integrated with Itunes. I would like to say, that's probably one reason why Apple apps can't just be downloaded anywhere and are limited for Apple users only. Not even a hacked Apple gadget can get through a safely secured Apple app! Apple just wanted its own trademark to be left mixtures of "monkey business" to that!

That is so far I can say for the moment. I haven't tried using photos with the Galaxy yet. Not even music and some other apps like journals or diary organizers. Although, I was able to download the "Movie Tube" and "Play Movies" which are of course free. I started watching a movie from Movie tube and so far, it's with excellent quality! These are free HD movies. Hhhmmm, this is so far one app I love! :)

So, you see, I don't hate Galaxies!! It's just that it doesn't give the lifestyle apps that I need, (at least for now)...I am still discovering what's in here to take and use.

I think, I would be choosing to make my Galaxy as an entertainment gadget!

Perhaps, my next review would be a Part 2! ....{wink}

have a great day everyone!
