Family House

The house where we live now is our family house which we inherited from my grandparents. It was built in the 70's so it's already old and the roof needs repair because it has already some leaks. I was wondering if Columbus roofers can give us a good estimate on how much the expenses would cost us to have the roof repaired. I heard positive reviews about their work and I'm pretty sure they will do their job well so I can get my money's worth. The house has a sentimental value to me because this is where my siblings and I were born and grew up. I spent most of my life here and it's kinda hard to leave it just like that.

My hubby wanted to move to a bigger house with a spacious yard but I was thinking of the rent. Why rent a house if we have one for free. I think it is not practical so I didn't agree with his plan. The house is actually like a duplex because my brother and his family live next door. That's the reason why hubby wanted a bigger house. Hubby is from the lone star state and they said that everything is big in Texas. That I have to agree. Our house and lot that we sold there a few years ago was a lot bigger than our house now. But then, we have to be contented with what we have now. Anyway, hubby and I both know that everything in this world is just temporal. We can't take our house to the grave. Though you have a mansion or a palace here on earth, you will leave it behind when it's your time to leave earth. What is important is that we both know that we have a mansion waiting for us in heaven.

In recognizing that you are competing with other construction company business owners to win the attention and loyalty of the public, it's important that you increase brand recognition and make your company the only one that the target market is thinking about. The key to putting this process in motion is to consistently advertise. Although many business owners think that advertising is a magical or mysterious process, it isn't. Successful advertising is all about using research and analytics to determine the client's target market and subsequently implementing a targeted campaign that generates interest in the brand and subsequently turns the prospective customer into a loyal brand ambassador. The internet makes it easy for construction company business owners to go online and do research for the purpose of finding the most suitable advertising company to represent them.

To ensure that you leave other construction companies in the dust and come out on top, be sure that you're getting great crane parts and optimizing your advertising efforts. Good luck!

My Natal Day

It's been a few days since I celebrated my birthday. I've been too busy so its only now that I found time to post it here in my blog. I thank God for another year that He added in my life. I consider it a blessing that until now I am alive, cancer free and stroke survivor. If you only knew how it feels to be stricken with cancer and was dying many years ago, then had a stroke 7 years later that made me so weak and had to stay in the rehab hospital for more than a month then you will understand how grateful and and thankful I am that the Lord had answered my prayers, healed me and gave me a new lease of life.

To celebrate my birthday, my helper Jojo and I cooked foods for my invited guests, friends and neighbors. She started cooking in the morning and finished it around 6PM. She cooked first the beef menudo, beef mechado, chicken and pork adobo, pinakbet, ginataang gabi and the shanghai lumpia which I prepared the day before  I know she was so exhausted and tired. I helped her prepared the ingredients and she did the cooking. Jhun cooked the spaghetti sauce and my brothers cooked the spaghetti pasta, rice and chicken barbeque. I made the aga-agar salad the night before and hubby bought my birthday cake.

Some of my friends (teachers) from the LNHS whom I used to work with came too. Dinner started around 6:30 PM at our carport. Jojo was so delighted when they told her that the foods she cooked were delicious. Just hearing the compliments made her tiredness vanished. Everybody got full and satisfied. We have quite a few leftovers and we ate it for a couple of days. I thank the Lord for all the blessings he bestowed. To God be the glory!




And here's a gift for me from Rosalie. It's a pink beaded purse. So cute.

Best Security Monitoring Service

Securing Your Home From Unfriendly Intruders

It truly does make a difference whether you hire a reputable professional or a fly by night pretender to supervise your home's security. Hiring the wrong company can mean a long host of headaches, missed opportunities, and a lot of wasted money. It's much more economical to do the required research to find a company that will back up their claims with plenty of solid evidence - and solid action as well.

It Matters What Company You Choose For Security

For this reason, you'll need to employ an alarm monitoring company that is truly custom fitted to your specific needs as an individual and family head. If you're concerned for your home's safety during certain specific times of the day or night, it's vitally important that you ensure that your alarm will have monitoring at all times of the day, with especial regard to the hours you have specified.

How To Choose The Correct Security Monitoring Service

There are a number of ways that you can be sure that you have truly hired the best security monitoring service for your needs. For example, you can make a closely ordered list of questions or specific needs to put to the representative of the company that you speak with. If they can answer all of your questions in a clear and courteous manner, and explain to you exactly how they are prepared to answer all of your needs, you may well have found a reputable company that you can do business with.

How To Get The Service That You Paid For

It's important that you get the service you are paying for. It's even more important to know that the company you are dealing with is prepared to back up all of their claims with actual deeds. For example, if your home alarm goes off and no response comes from the company you are paying to monitor it, then you obviously are dealing with a fraudulent company, and should discontinue your association with them as soon as is conveniently possible.

The End Result Is What Matters Most

In the end, what matters most is the final result of all your research and economic outlay: The security of your home, your valuable possessions, and your family members. When you choose the company that monitor your home alarm, it's important to keep all of these vital considerations in mind.

Got Relieved...

For one month now, my stress is almost vanishing. The reason, I got a helper to do house chores. I have a gout in my fingers and my knees so when I cook and then wash dishes afterwards, the gout in my fingers is triggered. There was one time, I can't sleep at night because my left fingers were so painful. It felt like they were being cut by a knife. I was literally crying. I had to apply some liniment but no effect at all. I tried to boil with salt and soak my left hand but it didn't really help. I went to bed crying and I had little sleep. Pain subsided in the morning but every now and then, the pain come and go. Also when I stand for half an hour or so, I can hardly walk. I can't even squat or sit down with folded legs. I feel an excruciating pain in both my knees when my legs are folded.

I have been complaining to hubby about this and he told me to hire a helper/maid to help me in doing house chores. I don't know anybody whom we can afford to pay but I I kept praying to God for some time to send me a helper. I wanted a stay out maid, salary within our budget, who knows how to cook, do the dishes and clean the house while I do the laundry because we have an automatic washing machine, fold our clothes take care of my plants, do other chores and of course blogging.

And God answered my prayers after 2 years. I met Josefina or Jojo for short in the grocery store while hubby and I were buying groceries. She told me she just quit her job and is looking for another employer. She asked me if I want to hire her. We negotiated with her salary and she agreed with my offer so I hired her. She just live a few houses from where we live so she go home at night and come to work at 7:30 AM six days a week. I am satisfied with her work and she's a good cook. Hubby just gave her first salary today. I thank the Lord for an for answered prayer.

Secure Your Home

A security system is essential for protecting a home or a business from intruders, as well as from a host of accidents. Your home or business are worth doing whatever you can to protect. Therefore, you should be willing to spend the money necessary to get a quality security system. There are an enormous amount of security systems on the market. Every company that makes these systems makes the claim that theirs is the best one. The difficult thing is actually determining which is the ideal system for your particular needs. All security systems are not the same. There are many different features to choose from. Here are some of the qualities to look for in a security company.

1. Experience

When it comes to alarm systems, you want the company you choose to have a great deal of experience. Ideally, you do not want to do business with a company that has less than three years of experience in the security industry. The logic being that if a company has been able to survive for at least three years in the very competitive security industry, there is a very good chance they know what they are doing. You will be able to find out how long most security system providers have been in business by simply looking at their website.

2. Options

Nowadays, security systems have many options to choose from. Along with standard glass break detection, many security systems can also detect smoke, carbon monoxide and many other things. There are security systems that come equipped with both interior and exterior cameras, as well as a monitoring service that will send police, EMS or the fire department to your home in the event of an emergency. It is also possible to control the lighting inside and outside of your home remotely, as well as view security cameras over the Internet. You should try to find a company that offers all of these selections. You do not have to choose all of these. You can select only the ones you need. PLE Group is an example of a company that offers all of these services and more.

3. Affordability

As you begin to shop around for security companies, you will start to see that the range of prices they charge for their services is quite large. This why you owe it to yourself to get price quotes from as many companies as you can.
