Magellan 1430 GPS

1 Comments

This is our new GPS unit. It is a Magellan Roadmate 1430. We got it from Sears hardware for $149. The best feature that we are really looking for is a GPS that tells you the actual street names not just the turn by turn directions. This does and you can use it right of the box. Very easy to use and the volume is loud enough even if you have the radio on. It has a power supply that you can plug in the car when the battery runs out. It is touch screen, very clear and before you have to make a turn it makes a sound warning you to make a turn NOW! Before you get out of the car, make sure to put it inside your pocket so as not to invite thieves to break your windows and take it. Just a precaution.

Tips for Website Builders

0 Comments

Webdesignad I first came to know blogging by clicking a link on a website. I do not remember where it was but it brought me to a site of one Filipina. She has beautiful posts every day until I included her in my favorites so with other bloggers found on her site. I was just an anonymous reader until I decided that I make my own using one of the free blogging services. I did make one but nobody visited my site so I was not motivated at all to improve it. I was hesitant to ask. To me, it seems that they belong to a family but I am not. This is four years ago but now I have three blogs; two with my own domain.


Please do not follow what I did because you will be wasting your time. If you are a newbie, read
web design for idiots main page website tutorials. This talented young lady who owns the website has a lot of posts About Web Design for Idiots like me which are so helpful. When you want to learn from scratch, you should be reading her tutorials. Since I found her website, I immediately bookmarked her page. I just read about her post on putting a lot of cool gadgets on your website and I know I am guilty of this. Also, I better understand the importance of back links and no follow tags. There is a lot to learn. Visit her at webdesignforidiots.net.

El Pollo Loco in New Jersey

2 Comments

This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants when I was still living in California. I still remember we used to go to their branch at Irvine. When I moved here in the East Coast, they do not have El Pollo Loco. Last month, hubby told me that the first Pollo Loco is opening or has just opened here in Jersey. We did not waste our time. That weekend we were there and the next weekend, too. It’s just eight miles away from our house. It is located in North Bergen, New jersey. I love their chicken, flour tortillas and all the different kinds of salsa. We will probably be there again tomorrow. TGIF!

Dog Beds

1 Comments

I do not have a dog but I am shopping for large dog beds as my gift to my ex-coworker and friend. Our friendship started way back at our former workplace and she was the one who brought me at this job after she got pirated a year before. So anyway, it is going to be her 40th birthday this coming April and she will be happier to see dog beds as gifts more than anything. She is a dog lover. Actually, she has two right now named Daisy and Cujo. Sometimes, she does dog sitting for friends who will be out of town for the weekend. I know she has been looking for fleece blankets by harry barker dog beds but I hope the blankets she bought would match the double bowsers dog beds that I am eyeing for the two dogs. I am buying everything from pawdigs.com. Check them out; they have all kinds of dog beds with free shipping for purchases over $150.

Jollibee in Queens New York

5 Comments


Finally, we have a Jollibee here at the East Coast. The first Jollibee opened last Valentine’s day located at 62-29 Roosevelt Ave., Woodside, New York. This is in the Queens area. We have not been there yet but according to some of my friends, the line was very long during the opening day. They patiently waited for almost five hours to get a bite of the so much missed chicken joy. The long wait is over for a lot of New Yorkers and Jersey Pinoys. It is so much different when you live at the West Coast where there are a lot of Filipino restaurants like Chow King, Max, Goldilocks, etc in a lot of cities and towns but here at the East Coast, so far this is the second Pinoy resto that opened. The first one was Red Ribbon in Jersey City, New Jersey. We will be crossing the Hudson River soon to eat the new Jollibee in Queens. How about opening a branch in Jersey too?

ISO Files

0 Comments

I was going through my files in the computer and I found several file extensions that I do not recognize. To my mind, what is these file extension iso? So, I asked out IT person at work and she said that ISO files are images of cd/dvd ROM files I have. She also explained to me how to write or burn these ISO files into a CD. I know I am not the only one who gets confuse with the many file extensions we encounter but you can look them up at the file extension library where they have a listing. You can do your research at file-extension-library.com.

To All Red Heads

0 Comments

My co-worker has a beautiful red hair and we call her red hair Stef. When I started working at my job, I thought she goes to the salon to have her hair dyed but it’s her natural hair color. I love it. She likes it when we call her red hair lady.

Last Saturday, we were both working and she showed all the pictures she posted on her facebook. It was my first time to be talking to her on a casual basis and she is cool. She has a group of friends online who are all red heads whom she communicates everyday through a social network called redhedd.com. Her group is getting bigger and bigger everyday and they are not only
redheads but open to people who love red heads. If there was just enough time last Saturday, I could have signed up too but we have to go home early because it was Valentine’s day.

So to all red heads out there, meet your fellow red heads at redhedd.com. I am sure you would like to be in a group where you have something in common. To join this fun group would not cost you anything. Go sign up now.

New Monitor

1 Comments

We bought a new monitor yesterday at best buy. Actually, this was not planned but our monitor needs to be replaced. Although it was a flat screen monitor but almost six years old and a 15 inch. We wanted a widescreen. When we went to best buy, our intention was to buy an hdmi cable for our TV. Whew, expensive pala! Our TV also uses an hdmi but hubby was not sure if it was a 60 hrz or 120 hrz. Since he got this Bravia, he just wants the best; get the most out of it. So even if we were unsure, we bought the hdmi cable. When we got home, it made no difference on the TV which to me is the most clear and the finest already but it's his new toy so be it. After two hours, we are back in best buy to return the hdmi cable so i told him why don't we just exchange it for a new monitor. Readily, he said yes. So we got this Gateway 19 inch widescreen flat panel lcd monitor with crisp crystal clear picture. We got it for $139.99 which is a steal and only $10 more than the hdmi cable. I told hubbby I am happy he did not need that cable because we got this new monitor instead.

Make Backups Always

0 Comments

Do you know that I do not have pictures of me being pregnant? Did I ever get pregnant? Of course, I did. I have a five year old daughter.

I had my first digital camera before my daughter was born. I remember it was a two megapixel and was already great at that time. I was so fascinated with the convenience of this new technology so when I got pregnant I never used any film camera to take any pictures. I do not know anything about
Online Backups and I even bought an external hard drive to transfer some of my files there to get more space in my computer hard drive. Everything was doing fine until one day my personal computer just stopped working. It does not power on, nothing. I asked my co-worker’s husband to take a look at it and he told me that the hard drive crashed and needs to be replaced. I detached the external hard drive, let him bring the computer to his house to get fixed and gave him money to buy a new hard drive. I was confident anyway all my files are copied to the external HD. My computer came back working again but when I attached the external hard drive, it was empty. All my files, pictures and music were gone!

I have learned my lesson. Right now, I always make backups. I may never get pregnant again. I lost all my pregnant pictures but I have my beautiful daughter to say it all.

USA Swimming Suspends Michael Phelps

4 Comments

Michael Phelps, an eight time gold winner at the Beijing Olympics is being suspended by USA Swimming for three months after the British tabloid News of the World published his photo smoking from a marijuana pipe. The photo was taken during a house party in Columbia, South Carolina in November during an extended break from training. His financial support from USA Swimming was also cut-off for three months. Kellogg's also announced that it is not renewing its contract with Phelps after the photo came out saying that his “behavior is not consistent with the image of Kellogg.” Michael has accepted the decision of the governing body and has acknowledged the regrettable behavior and bad judgement.

Laser Hair Removal

0 Comments

Six more weeks to go before spring season comes. These thick clothes are going back to the storage to be replaced by tank tops, shorts and flip flops. The only problem with wearing shorts is you constantly have to shave your legs to avoid those unwanted hairs to show. My friend is persuading me to do a permanent hair removal using a laser yag machine. I am not familiar with it but she will be showing to me an instructional video she bought from videoshelf.com about how laser removal works, procedures, different options and a lot more. If it is not scary to me I will consider doing it before the warm season comes. I want all these unwanted hairs to go permanently.

Warm Weather in Arizona

0 Comments

It is snowing again here in New Jersey while my friend who lives in Arizona is enjoying their 80 degree weather right now. She used to live here but got sick and tired of dealing with frequent snow and cold weather that is why when she found a property through Scottsdale real estate she did not have second thoughts but moved to a warm state right away. Her luxury three bedroom condo is located in a resort with magnificent views complete with amenities. I have seen the pictures she sent through email plus an invitation to go visit her in Arizona with free accommodation provided by her.
