Holiday Trip!

Hiltonsocial-ad-300x400



My husband and I have been planning to go on a trip for awhile now but we have not decided on where to take our vacation. We keep on changing the dates and the destination so we can relax and unwind and not worry about our jobs or our schoolwork. A friend of mine suggested that we visit the state of Missouri because she had visited Missouri before and felt that it would be the perfect place to visit to get away from it all for awhile. I am very excited because I happened to have two friends who reside there and I would like to visit my cousin as well whom I have not seen in many years since she left Philippines to pursue her career as a registered nurse.

I am very much interested to stay at one of two of the most prominent hotels in Branson, Missouri which is the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. I found out that Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing is located in Lake Taneycomo, Missouri which is part of the Branson Landing shopping center and entertainment district. It's at the center of the Historic Downtown Branson just across the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. Both of these hotels are just minutes away from outlet malls, the 49 theaters, golf courses, the famous Table Rock Lake, Silver Dollar City, Celebration City and plenty of other attractions.

Right now they are actually offering special packages for the holidays such as The Thanksgiving Package, It’s a Wonderful Life Package, Santa’s Coming to Town Package and the New Years’ Eve Package. Since Thanksgiving Day is over you can choose the other three packages that are available. I would prefer to choose the New Year's Eve Package since it would be a good place to visit before traveling to other places next year. Included in these theme packages are spa treatments, family style dinners, and a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, which are offered by the two hotels mentioned above.


Both Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing offer the best amenities such as Indoor and Outdoor pools, Guest Rooms or Condos, and the famous Luxurious Guest accommodations, Reception area, Banquet area and a Ballroom area.

I am very excited and I am dying to see for myself the wonders and attractions that I will be experiencing in Branson, Missouri this coming New Year. So if you are planning to travel this holiday season don't forget to check out Branson, Missouri, the place where you should be this coming holiday.

Holiday Shopper Please Slow Down!

A Wal-Mart worker was killed after shoppers knock him in the ground. The shoppers were eager to get the best bargain from Wal-Mart, they even broke down the doors so they can get it. The sad part is that the unknown worker come from a temporary agency where he was doing store maintenance at Wal-Mart Store in New York.

He was rushed to the hospital but at 6 a.m he was pronounced dead. Also a 28 year old pregnant woman was taken to the hospital for observation, four or five other people suffered minor injuries.

So too all holiday buyers please take it easy, don't rushed!

My Thoughts Are With You

We went for a Thanksgiving get together at my in-laws house and were discussing about the terrorist attack in Mumbai India which is the business capital of India. I feel very bad for all the people that were taken hostage especially the ones that are killed and wounded. Supposedly, the group of terrorist attack seven places, they started attacking last Wednesday. They are targeting foreign nationals who are American, British and Canadians.

They killed at least 125 people all together and still counting and wounded 327. They have been attacking the Taj Mahal Hotel, Oberoi Hotel, Jewish Center, Cama Hospital, Chabad House, Cafe Leopold, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station.

I hope this chaos will stop and let peace prevail!

Great Quality Items Under $25

If I had the means to shop overboard without a budget I would surely do so because it would be very nice. All I would have to do would be to pick the items that I would like to purchase and pay for it. BUT since I have a specific budget of how much I can spend for the holidays I am more concerned about how much each gift will cost for the people on my list. I've been mentioning on my posts all the time that I have a big family in the Philippines, I want to give them the best gifts that I can possibly purchase for them.

Excited For Thanksgiving Day!

My boss told us today that we will be close tomorrow so we can celebrate the Thanksgiving Day together with our family. I am very happy because we will have a get together dinner tomorrow with my husband's family.

I asked my Father-in-law if they need help and he was happy because he said that I am the first person who asked that question to him. I told him that we can help them prepare the food tomorrow since both me and my husband will be free tomorrow. This year will be my third time to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with my family here in the US. I will be taking pictures tomorrow for sure.

Careful During Holiday Rush

Fasten your seatbelt when you are driving on the free-way because this is the most dangerous time of the year to be driving, especially that Thanksgiving Day is coming. Make sure to have plenty of time to go home and drive back and forth from where you come from so you will not be driving fast beyond the speed limit. There was heavy traffic today especially on the free way. We went to the North East side of El Paso, Texas and Oh boy we have to drive like 30 minutes on the free way so we can arrived at our destination. Many people at this time are preparing to cook Thanksgiving dinners, and complete their Christmas shopping this weekend, so many people are quite busy and often times their driving reflects that. People are in a rush to get to their destinations and often times become a little more careless. To make matters worse, many people will be drinking alcoholic beverages during Thanksgiving, and sadly, many of these people do not look for a designated driver or call a taxi.

Make Their Wishes Come True With Your Help!




As I was reading the story of the many families whose husbands, sons, brothers, sisters, fathers, friends and relatives are serving as military personnel, I was thinking of how hard it must be to be far away from their families especially since the holidays are fast approaching. Even for me, I miss my family a lot because I cannot be with them this coming Christmas, I can only imagine how much more difficult it must be for those who are serving and protecting our country. Like us they also have their wish list for this coming Holiday. To help make their wishes come true, Sears has a program called Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry. With Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry you can now help make their wishes come true by donating any amount to the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry or you can drop by any local Sears store. You can also show your support by putting a badge on your website that supports the Heroes and Home program. If you can't afford to help them financially then you can still make a difference by sending them a Thank you message or encouragement for all military men and women at Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry.com or by simply telling a friend about the program and forwarding the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry page to their email addresses.


I love this quote concerning helping other people, it says and I quote: "Only by giving are you
able to receive more than you already have." So act now by making their wishes come true!

Disappointed!

I can't believed that until now I have not received the item that I've been waiting to arrived in the mail. It's been two weeks already and I am started to get worried, I thought I will have them sooner but I am very much disappointed. I dunno if they sent it to the wrong address but I did make sure that I give them the correct address and my full name. I just want to have it right now so I can used it...It is a very elegant purse that I order online. I have a mini collection of purses although, not all of them are well known brand but they are cute, in-great colors, well made,and I pick them from thousands of items online. I've been contacting the seller about it but I have not received any explanation or any agreement on what to do next.

I am still hopeful I will eventually received the item this week! I am crossing my fingers!

Celebrate Your Thanksgiving With Sears!

Today was very stressful because I was cleaning the house. I was supposed to relax because I'm off from work but I can't help myself but do something or I'll go crazy. I was cleaning the house because my sister-in-laws will be here for Thanksgiving Day and they might be staying in our house. I forgot to tell my husband yesterday to borrow the vacuum cleaner from his Dad because we don't have our own vacuum cleaner anymore since we left it at our old apartment. As I was browsing the web I noticed that there is a Sears Pre-Thanksgiving Sale. I checked to see if they have any sales for a vacuum cleaner and I said to myself, Oh wow! They have some. It is a Kenmore brand vacuum cleaner that comes with a Bagless upright with Inteli-Clean system for only $229.99 on which you can save $120 if you buy it during the Sears Pre-Thanksgiving Sale.

I am very happy because we will be getting our new Kenmore Vacuum cleaner which means that we don't have to borrow from my Father-in-laws anymore, after we purchase our own. It also means that we will be saving money if we purchase this item during the Sears Pre-Thanksgiving Sale.

Does Your Child Wet On Their Bed?

Causes of bed-wetting?

Children don't wet the bed on purpose. Most likely, a child wets the bed for one or more reasons, such as:

  • Delayed growth. Children whose nervous system is still forming may not be able to know when their bladder is full.
  • A small bladder. Some children may have a bladder that gets full quickly.
  • Too little antidiuretic hormone. The body makes this hormone, which rises at night to tell the kidneys to release less water. Some children may not have enough of this hormone.
  • Deep sleeping. Many children who wet the bed sleep so deeply that they don't wake up to use the bathroom. They probably will wet the bed less often as they get older and their sleep pattern changes.
  • Emotional or social factors. Children may be more likely to wet the bed if they have some stress. For example, a child may have a new brother or sister.

Children who wet the bed after having had dry nights for 6 or more months may have a medical problem, such as a bladder infection. Or stress may be causing them to wet the bed.


Here are some other tips that may help your child:

  • Give your child most of his or her fluids in the morning and afternoon.
  • Limit caffeine from chocolate or colas, especially at night.
  • Have your child use the toilet before he or she goes to bed.
  • Let your child help solve the problem, if your child is older than 4. He or she can help decide which treatments to try.
  • Offer your child disposable nighttime underpants. Don't force your child to wear them, but they are fine if your child is comfortable using them.
  • Praise your child for dry nights.

Making Your Marriage Works!

Make your marriage the priority-

Between kids and work, it’s easy to get so busy that you put your marriage on hold - but it should be the center of everything you do. When it suffers, so does everything else. Spending time with your spouse is the most important job you have to do each day.


Try new things as a couple-

Remember when you were getting to know each other and everything was new? Get that feeling back! You don’t have to take up sky-diving. Try cooking a meal you’ve never cooked before. As long as it’s new, and you’re doing it together, you’ll be giving your marriage what it needs to thrive.


Hang onto something from your single life-

Many marriages run into trouble because people believe they have to do EVERYTHING as a couple. It’s easy to get so wrapped up in each other that you drop off the office softball team or miss movie night with your single friends. But eventually, that breeds resentment. So keep doing the things you love to do on your own.

Ask your spouse for advice-

If you find yourself with problems you don’t feel you can share with your partner - you’re in trouble. Being able to talk things out is the foundation of a great marriage. And this is especially true for men. The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT predictor of marital success is a husband’s willingness to listen to his wife.

Keeping Your Skin Healthy and Hydrated

• Moisturize for soft skin-

For a deeply moisturizing treatment, gently rub your skin with calendula oil twice a day. To bring relief from tight and itchy skin, mix in ten drops of Tonic Oil (wintergreen, eucalyptus, and menthol) with fresh aloe gel; apply liberally and frequently.


• Hydrate yourself-

Dryness, in general, is a condition caused by depleted internal fluids. Keep hydrated and drink plenty of water, at least 60 ounces per day. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol, and coffee.


• Valuable vitamins for skin-

A fluid deficiency can result in skin dryness. One suggestion is to be sure that you are getting your proper vitamin intake; vitamins A, B-Complex, and E support healthy skin. Vitamin E can also be applied directly to the skin at elbows, knees, or anywhere that is especially dry.


• Shorten shower time-

Long hot baths and showers remove oils from your skin. Keep your bath or shower time to under 15 minutes, and use warm, rather than hot, water. After washing, gently pat yourself dry with a towel to keep some moisture on your skin. Then moisturize. Also, keep in mind that harsh deodorant and antibacterial soaps are damaging to your skin, stripping it of lipids and moisture. If you have dry skin, it's best to use mild soaps with added oil and moisturizer. After cleansing, your skin should never feel tight or dry.

• Dress for dry weather-

Keep covered up to avoid excessive exposure to sun and wind. Be kind to your skin and choose natural fiber fabrics, such as cotton or silk, that let your skin breath. Also, use gentle laundry detergents to wash your clothes, the ones with no dyes or perfumes, both of which may irritate your skin.

Crazy Weather

My husband had fever,cold and sore throat at the same time. I really feel bad for him, because he was all exhausted from work. Last night, after we took a nap for 3 hours or should I say we sleep for 3 hours long, we went to the grocery store to buy some stew meat and other food to last for two weeks. We also purchase medicine for him and after that we went home right away.

And today, I was just doing my laundry while waiting for my hubby to arrived from work. He doesn't want to call in sick because he said, he can still managed to work for today. This cold weather also contributes why its easy for us to get sick.

I am praying for his fast recovery. One thing I don't like is that when one of us get sick or any of my love ones get sick. Its not easy!

The Wonders of Home Remedies

Here are four doctor-recommended natural home remedies to cure everything from a nagging cough to bad breath.


1. First, for that cough: Try two squares of dark chocolate, or two teaspoons of honey. Researchers found compounds in chocolate that are more effective at suppressing coughs than codeine – a common ingredient in allergy relief medicine. Plus, the natural sweetness in chocolate won’t leave you feeling drowsy or constipated – like codeine can. Meanwhile, honey contains antioxidants which naturally boost your immune system and recent studies found that honey works better at suppressing coughs in children than any over-the-counter cough medicine.

2. Next, to stifle hiccups: Swallow a teaspoon of sugar. Experts say any substance with course, dry granules will soothe the irritated nerves that cause your diaphragm to spasm. However, a teaspoon of sugar tastes a lot better than a teaspoon of salt.

3. For Chapped Lips- Rub olive oil on your mouth two or three times a day. Olive oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that will soothe, soften and lubricate your lips – making them feel better immediately. You’ll need to apply it for several days before the chapping fully heals. There’s a bonus benefit: New research shows that applying extra virgin olive oil to your skin after being out in the sun may help prevent skin cancer.

4. Remedy for Bad Breath-Gargle a cup of lemon juice. Lemons contain a natural acid which kills the odor causing bacteria in your mouth. If you follow your gargling with a spoonful of plain yogurt, you’ll neutralize the odor completely! That’s because yogurt contains beneficial bacteria called probiotics and those have been found to neutralize stinky mouth microbes for up to 24 hours.

How To Stop Swearing?

Offensive language, like other bad habits, isn’t easy to overcome. But you can conquer it when your desire is strong enough. Here are some tips to help you make your language fair instead of foul.

1. Be Aware- Swearing is wrong. It’s not cool or original. Besides, others may develop a false image of what you stand for if you use bad language.

2. Desire a Change- Before you will change, you have to want to change. Nobody can do it for you; you must do it yourself.

3. Seek Help- Talk to your parents, priest or bishop, good friends, and to those who have overcome the problem. They can offer specific advice.

4. Make a Commitment- Set a goal. Research indicates it takes 21 days to overcome a habit, so why not avoid swearing for 21 days?


5. Change Behavior- If anger triggers searing, work on controlling your temper. If bad friends, music, movies, or environment contribute to the problem, find new ones.

6. Get Reinforcement- Tell someone you trust that you’re trying to change. Check in periodically to let them know how you’re doing.

7. Be Persistent- Change may not come overnight. But continued effort will lead to success.

Aromas That Can Alter Your Mood

One of the most direct routes to your brain is through your NOSE. So what you smell can influence your mood. Think about it - one whiff of apple pie or chocolate chip cookies can make you long for mom’s kitchen and other scents can influence your mood just as easily. That’s because SMELLS feed directly into the emotional centers of the brain. In other words, you can often alter your state of mind simply by exposing yourself to a specific aroma. So right now, we’re going to touch on two specific mood shifts. Here’s what to sniff when you want to raise your energy level, and on the flip side, when you need to calm down.


1. Calming Your Nerves- It’s all about VANILLA. For starters, it’s the one scent shown to be universally liked in all cultures – and it’s especially calming. Why? Because it subconsciously reminds us of a mother’s breast milk. So if you’re anxious about a first date or a big presentation, keep some vanilla scented lotion handy, or a vanilla candle. Either of those will help stabilize your nerves.


2. Energy Boost- It’s 4PM and you’re in a brain fog. You’ve already had way too much caffeine, but you still have 2 more hours of the workday to get through. The solution? Grab a peppermint hard candy, some spearmint tea, or even a tiny tic tac - anything with MINT. Sniffing mint stimulates the nerve endings in your nose, which send impulses to the part of the brain that makes you feel wide awake and alert. In fact, in one study, athletes who inhaled peppermint were able to do more push-ups and run a 400-meter dash faster than those inhaling other odors. The minty aroma has also been shown to raise your tolerance to pain, another benefit if you’re trying to get energized for a workout.

This is only one of the many programs they offered at National Institute of Marriage. For more information or if interested in saving your marriage here is your chance to check at National Institute of Marriage.com or you also read their Press Release below.


Press Release:

With the national divorce rate around 50%, there is no doubt that many marriages run into communication problems at some point. There is a communication epidemic. The National Institute of Marriage has created marriage counseling programs and resources utilizing a structure that is the most powerful format they have found for helping couples who feel stuck and hopeless. They have designed several programs to help couples move past the barriers and experience the marriage of their dreams.
NIM's Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs are unique from weekly marriage counseling in three distinctive ways:

· Intensive Marriage Counseling Format: Committing to an extended amount of concentrated time like the 2 or 4 day Marriage Intensive allows people to get to the root of the problem and stick with it in order to work through it. If you’ve been in traditional marriage counseling before, you may have experienced how you spend the first half catching up from the week before, the second half getting into the real issues, and then the time is gone. The Intensive format is designed so that people have the chance to go deeper without many of the other distractions of daily life and have enough discuss to consider solutions.

· Efficiency: One of the first steps in the process is an extensive assessment with some questionnaires. This allows the therapists to gather background information and can get an idea of the best strategy to proceed before you arrive for your session.

· Marriage Counselors: The counselors at the National Institute of Marriage are specialists in this area. One analogy we like to use is that of the Mayo Clinic: people go to their regular physician but may be sent to a specialist to work with specific areas. The NIM marriage therapists have been trained in this format to maximize its effectiveness. Also, the NIM marriage counseling programs provide the perspectives and insight of two professionals rather than one.
If you are considering divorce, you must try the National Institute of Marriage before giving up. They have developed a continuum of care that meets couples wherever they may be in their relationship. Regardless of the health of their marriage they have a service that can help couples improve their marital satisfaction. Visit their website at http://www.nationalmarriage.com.

Ways To Take If You Lose Your Job

1. Grieve...Then Move On- Spend a day or two getting all of your resentful feelings out of your system. If you hang onto your emotional baggage, it’ll only slow down your search for a new job. So after a couple of days, you’ve got to move forward and DON’T burn bridges by calling your boss or coworkers to “give them a piece of your mind.” You never know when someone from your former job might help you find a future job

2. Get Your Resume Together- Start by putting together a list of everything you accomplished at your last job, but don’t just regurgitate your job description. Your accomplishments should highlight things like numbers, percents, and dollars saved because studies show that specific, measurable experience registers with hiring managers and applicant screeners. So instead of saying you had “shipping duties,” say something like “helped introduce a new shipping system that cut costs by $100 a month.” However, don’t LIE on your resume. If an employer finds out you lied, you won’t get the job. Period....

3. Let People Know That You Are Currently Looking for A Job- Go through your collection of business cards and start reconnecting with former associates. DON’T just talk to people who know you well, talk to the guy you always wave to at the gym. Or the parents of the other kids on your daughter’s soccer team. Studies show that 80 percent of all jobs come through networking and you never know who may have a lead.

4. Search for Full-Time Job- This means eight hours a day of solid work. Whether it’s calling potential employers, surfing job websites, attending job fairs, or reading about the career you’re interested in. Being a “professional job seeker” may not be the job title you want, but if you take it seriously, it won’t be your job title for long.

Too Hot To Handle!

I am very excited after I heard about the Flat Belly Diet as well as I am very curious to know what this is all about. The Flat Belly Diet was created by an editor of the famous Prevention Magazine. The most amazing thing about it is that we can actually eat healthy fats mostly known as the Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFAs for short. These MUFAs or Monounsaturated Fatty Acids, are fats that are heart friendly,they fight disease and are considered to be "good" fat that can be found in foods such as almonds, peanut butter, olive oil, avocado and even chocolate.


The Monounsaturated Fatty Acids or MUFAs are not saturated fats and they are totally different from the unhealthy saturated and trans fat that we always hear or read on the news. A new research has been made and they found that MUFAs or the Monounsaturated Fatty Acids can make help you to lose weight particularly in the middle part of your body where your belly is located.

I admit that I always wanted to have a flat belly. But I just get frustrated because its really hard to manage your weight. You have to be consistent with the food that you intake and with your exercise. One thing I like about Flat Belly Diet is that you can still achieve the flat belly you badly want to have without going to the gym.

To all the women out there who desperately want to have an ultimate flat belly now is your chance to embrace the Flat Belly Diet for free. All eligible participants will receive the following items:

1. Free copy of the Flat Belly Diet book
2. Free 1 year membership to the Flat Belly Diet website
3. Exclusive membership to their Success Story Club
4. Your chance to blog about your Flat Belly Diet on their website
5. And you have the first look of the exclusive Flat Belly Diet videos

Interested about Flat Belly Diet? check their website to see it first hand.

Bills Are Infinite

We just check our mailbox and I was already expecting bills for our electric service, gas service,water service, cable/phone/internet. But you know, it always overwhelmed me because the cost of living here in the states are really high. I guess I have less problem before when I was in the Philippines because I was living with my parents and younger siblings and I don't really have to pay for anything unless my Mom asked help from me.

Having my own family and being married had been a tremendous change for me. I am quite mature to have my own decision and to take consideration on my husband's advice and so forth. Although, sometimes we clash with our decisions and outlook on a particular topic but we are able to compromise every now and then.

Charlize Theron, The Newest Appointed U.N Peace Messenger

Charlize Theron is the newest U.N. Messenger of Peace, turning her Academy Award-winning fame to ending violence against women and girls around the globe.

Theron, 33, told reporters Monday after being inducted into her new role by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that she was taking on her new responsibilities "very humbly, with a very excited heart."

The South African native vowed to help send a strong message that violence against women and girls was not acceptable in her upcoming travels to assist Ban's campaign dubbed "UNite to End Violence against Women," which was launched in February.


Worldwide, the U.N. says one of every five women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape at some point in their lifetime, and at least one of every three women is likely to be beaten, coerced into sex or abused in some other way.

"This is something that has been very dear to me, and disturbing to me for a long time," Theron said.

Theron, who at age 15 witnessed her mother shoot her alcoholic father to death while he was threatening the family, won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2004 for her portrayal of a domestic violence victim turned serial killer in "Monster."

She also was nominated for an Oscar for playing a character in 2005's "North Country," which deals with domestic abuse and sexual harassment.

Already an activist, Theron began working with a Cape Town, South Africa rape crisis center in 1999 and later founded the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project to promote HIV/AIDS education for poor children and their families in South Africa.

Thinking too much about the big picture can be "very overwhelming," she said, so Theron will try to avoid such frustration and measure her success in her new U.N. role on a person-by-person basis.

Theron joins nine other celebrities, including Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein of Jordan and actors George Clooney and Michael Douglas, in becoming a "messenger" for the U.N. in waging peace and conducting its humanitarian work worldwide.

Men's Bling Bling!

Our second wedding anniversary is almost here and I am planning to buy a very special gift for my husband. I am thinking of buying something valuable like Jewelry and Watches on our special day. I would love to give him an extra special gift to remind him all the time how much I love him.

I am actually planning to buy a bracelet,or a necklace or a watch. I am glad I found Mens Jewelry online. They have a very beautiful and wide selection of Mens Jewelry, the funny thing is that I am confused about what to buy, because everything is phenomenal.

Likewise, you can also choose your own Mens Jewelry Styles. They have jewelry that are made out of many materials, such as seashells, shark teeth, bear claws and even some that are carved from wood or you can also get Mens Jewelry Styles that are made from metal like platinum, stainless steel or even titanium.

Congratulations to my sister Elaine for passing the Licensure Exam for Teachers!

I never expected that I will receive a very good news from my family back in the Philippines. They sent me an offline message that says " my sister Elaine passed the Licensure Exam for Teachers! I was speechless for a few minutes and I told myself oh my gosh, no I am not dreaming this is for real!

We are praying for this moment and we're patiently waiting. I know it was hard for my sister to keep on waiting for the result because she was afraid that she will fail the exam. She even told the other member of our family a few weeks ago that she will kill herself if she won't passed. And I was scared and afraid you know. I told my mother and my other sisters to keep an eye on her just to make sure that she will not do something bad. Finally, I got a hold of her and we talked online and I was relieved when she told me that she won't do it. I promised her that if ever she won't passed that me and my husband will be there for her to support her financially and that my whole family will be there for her. I even told her that I know the Lord will never leave her because He knows what's best for her but "Thy will be done".

Lastly, I am very proud of my family especially my parents. Ma and Pa thank you for your hard work! You are the best parents in the whole world! Thank you for sending us to school especially my younger siblings! You are a winner! You earned this as well!

The Beauty of Nature

Red Rocks Data Center's Green Page is the most peculiar state of the art data center and hosting facility. They are located in Morrison, Colorado which is surrounded with mountains and it is just minutes away from downtown Denver, Colorado.


Red Rocks Data Center's Green Page is environmentally friendly because they use fresh mountain air to cool their facility when the temperature drops to 72 degrees. The new cooling unit is just the beginning of the many future ongoing projects to help them reduce their energy cost. They are doing the best to become the "greenest" and environmentally friendly private data center.


Red Rocks Data Center will provide world class hosting facilities to small or to medium sized businesses. Their facility was originally built by NASA and was the largest non-military satellite facility in America.

You can also read their press release about Red Rocks Data Center to get to know them better.

Red Rocks Data Center Installs Energy Efficient Cooling System

“A state-of-the-art ‘air economizer’ system further reduces Red Rocks Data Center operational costs and environmental impact.”

Morrison, Colorado - November 17, 2008: Red Rocks Data Center (RRDC), striving to become one of
the nation's "greenest" data centers, recently installed an environmentally responsible cooling system. They chose a Trane Voyager (http://trane.com) unit which incorporates an outdoor air economizer that uses free
mountain air to cool the data center.

Installation of this cutting edge cooling system has cut RRDC’s cooling costs to one-sixth that of their previous, conventional air conditioning system. “By cutting our consumption of green house gas emitting, coal-fired electricity, we have put our money where our mouth is in regards to becoming one of Colorado’s greenest data centers while passing the cost savings onto our customers”, remarked RRDC’s managing partner, Tom Nats. RRDC was recently awarded the Bronze level in the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s "Environmental Leadership Awards" for their energy efficiency. In addition, RRDC is working with the Colorado School of Mines to design a data center expansion area in the most environmentally-friendly means possible.

RRDC is hidden behind the "hog back" in Morrison, Colorado in a "frost hollow" that has abundant cool air. Housed in a former NASA satellite uplink facility, the center now draws cool, filtered mountain air into the building throughout the year, virtually eliminating the need for expensive air conditioning. Tom adds, “We will also be adding duct work to capture hot server air and use it to heat our office space during the winter months. This allows us to virtually eliminate our heating costs.” Mr. Nats adds “We also offer discounts to ‘green’ groups and nonprofits.”

I Am Your Santa!

Since I am the oldest among 12 children, I have this motherly feeling of giving and providing things for my younger siblings although we are not living on the same country but still I feel that I have the obligation to send things to them. The youngest in the family is only 3 years old and my little brother is only 5 years old. Every time we chat on the internet, the first thing that they ask me is if I already buy the toys that they want. And I told my little sister and my little brother that I haven't had time to go to the store and buy the toys that they want.

Actually, I've been to the store but when I check those toys that my younger siblings mention, I cannot afford to buy them, they are quite expensive. I was happy and relieved when I checked Toy Overstock online. Their toy prices are very affordable because they are cheaper than the ones that I saw on the mall or at the local toy stores.

I want my younger siblings to be happy especially since I haven't seen them for 2 years now. It is quite difficult not being there for them during Christmas. I always do my best to send them Christmas gifts especially since I have a big family. I have a lot of cousins that are very young on my mother's side and I am the oldest cousin that they have and Toy Overstock helps me get a great deal with the variety of toys they have in their website. I feel very lucky to have found them. Now all I need to do is check the toys that I need to order.

It's very convenient to place your order because all you have to do is place your order online and you can either pay it with credit or debit card. The good thing about Toy Overstock is that you can return your product if there's any damages or if the product that you order is not the one that you actually received.

So if you are looking to spend your money wisely and get the toys that you want at wholesale prices then check Toy Overstock it is guaranteed that they will not let you down.

Looking Forward for the Holiday Season

My husband and I are very excited for the upcoming celebrations from Thanksgiving, and of course we will be celebrating our Second Wedding Anniversary as well as Celebrating our Christmas together.

I was surprised because my husband is the one who have been telling me that we need to look for a Christmas Tree so we can decorate our apartment already. He was never been this excited since I arrived here in the US two years ago. His dad was telling him not to buy ornaments for Christmas Trees because he have a lot to spare for us.

I know that I will not be preparing Turkey at our apartment because we already have a lot of invitation from my husband's family to go there and celebrate with them. Anyways, I am looking forward for the Thanksgiving holiday because that means no work for me and it also means that we can spend time together with my husband and his family.

Gossip?

Gossiping happens all around us every day, and it is extremely hurtful. It may seem cool to spread “the latest news” to your friends, but think about the person you are talking about. Would you say what you are saying if he or she was there? Did the person say you could tell people? Think about how you would feel if someone was gossiping about you. If your friends are gossiping, nicely change the subject.


There are three groups involved in gossip: ourselves, those who listen, and the people we talk about. Make a commitment to stop gossiping, and then do it. Here is some medicine to cure the gossip disease: (1) Change the topic when your friends start gossiping. (2) Keep quiet so they don’t have people to talk to. (3) Tell them frankly to “speak not evil one of another” (James 4:11) it says and I quote:

James 4: 11

"Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge".


To avoid gossiping, we can memorize a scripture like Leviticus 19:18 that teaches us to love our neighbors as ourselves and recite it in our minds every time we’re about to start gossiping. It says on Leviticus 19:18 and I quote:

"Thou shalt not aavenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord".


Another idea is to say two good things about the person. In that way you’ll forget his or her shortcomings and instead notice the person’s goodness. Gossiping can be hard to overcome. But I think if you remember to love your neighbor, you might think twice before saying a regretful comment. We aren’t the ones to judge others. I think looking for good things in people can help, rather than watching for the negative.
