Stylish Blogger!

I haven't been blogging much lately. It's been a long time since I got an award. Today, I am posting the award that was given to me by adorable Lainy - Our Journey to Forever. I was hesitant to post it because I don't think I am a stylish blogger as I have abandon my blogging duties for a long time. It happens when you are busy at work and earning money to pay your own bills. But I still want to extend my appreciation to Lainy. Thank you for the award!

Here are the rules in receiving this award:

Thank and link back the person who gave you this award - - - Thank you, Lainy!

Share 7 things about yourself:
  • I hate people who smoke! I just can't stand their breath when they talk, their smell on their clothes is just terrible. I want to tell it straight to their face! Alright, I know I am mean, but that's just the way I feel right now.
  • I am addicted playing Words With Friends. It is simple and familiar game-play you know and love (Scrabble). I also play Bejeweled Blitz everyday!
  • My all-time favorite TV show is 24. I have the complete DVD collection from Season 1 to Season 8, including the 24: The Redemption. I watched it together with my husband.
  • My husband and I live in North Dakota during the summer time (6 months) and we live in Texas during the winter time (another 6 months). We feel like we're snow birds. Don't get me wrong, I love snow but when it gets really cold and you don't see the sunshine for 21 days, that's a different story.
  • I love to travel!
  • Last December 2010, I missed my High School Grand Alumni Homecoming.
  • I miss my mother and two sisters so much. It won't be long now, I will be seeing them very soon!

Benefits of Purchasing a Total Protect Home Warranty

This is a sponsored guest post written by Total Protect Home Warranty on behalf of Total Protect Home Warranty. Post powered by Sponzai.

The Total Protect Home Warranty offered by insurance carriers provides many benefits for homeowners. Along with the coverage provided to repair major appliances if they break down, members can also receive access to a special discount appliance buyers club. Anytime a homeowner researches purchasing an upgraded appliance for their home, they can contact the Appliance Buy Line Discount Buying Service to receive up to 30% off the suggested retail price of their new appliance. This service includes major name brands for all major home appliances.

In addition to purchase discounts for new appliances, the warranty service provides repair coverage for all major appliances in a home, normally regardless of brand or age of the appliance. This coverage usually includes plumbing systems, electrical systems, heating and cooling systems, ceiling fans, garbage disposals, dishwashers, washers and dryers, stoves and ranges and built in microwaves. Actual coverage limits can vary by state and provider; however, the cost of the coverage can be thousands less than paying for repairs without the coverage. All the covered appliances are the major appliances homeowners use the most, and usually use on a daily basis. The premium cost of covering these major appliances can make the difference between a day or two without air conditioning or heating and trying to scratch up the hundreds to thousands to have the unit repaired or replaced. The benefits well outweigh the cost of the premium, making repair protection an excellent addition to the traditional homeowners insurance policy.

Divorce Letter

Note: It's Joke time! I got this article from my college friend and I am sharing it here. Enjoy!

Dear Wife,

I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you for good. I've been a good man to you for seven years and I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you had quit your job today and that was the last straw.

Last week, you came home and didn't even notice that I had gotten a new hair cut, cooked your favorite meal, and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers later that night.

You came home, nibbled at your food for two minutes, and went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don't tell me you love me anymore, you don't want sex anymore or anything. Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me. Whichever is the case, I'm gone.


Your EX-Husband

P.S. Don't try to find me. Your sister and I are moving away to West Virginia together. Have a great life!


Dear Ex-Husband,

Nothing has made my day more enjoyable than receiving your letter. It's true that you and I have been married for seven years, although a 'good man' is a far cry from what you've been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining and griping. It's just too bad it doesn't work.

Yes, I did notice when you got a hair cut last week, and actually the first thing that came to my mind was "You look just like a girl", but my mother raised me not to say anything at all if you can't say anything nice. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with my SISTER, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago.

I turned away from you when you had those new silk boxers on because the price tag was still on them. I prayed that it was just a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed fifty dollars from me that morning and your silk boxers were $49.99...

After all of this, I still loved you and felt that we could work it out. So when I discovered that I had hit the lotto for twenty million dollars, I quit my job and bought us two tickets to Hawaii. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you've always wanted.

My lawyer said with the letter that you wrote, you won't get a dime from me. So take care.


Rich As Hell and Freeeeeeeeeeee!

P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this but my sister 'Carla', was born Carl. I hope that's not a problem for you.

PetCareRx Reviews

This is a sponsored guest post written by PetCareRx Reviews on behalf of PetCareRx Reviews. Post powered by Sponzai.

Shopping online offers a level of convenience that you can't get from a local store, and since there are fewer operating costs, the prices are often lower as well. However, a customer needs to be sure that they are working with the best company available. PetCareRx is one of the best options out there.

When shopping for your pets medications your first concern should be the safety and health of your pet. PetCareRx is a business that understands this. They have been a licensed pharmacy since 1998, and all of the medications they sell have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). PetCareRx also has several full time pharmacists on staff to supervise and monitor every outgoing prescription order. A stringent verification process, involving a 12 point check system, is undergone for every order made through the company.

In addition to ensuring that your pet is receiving the right medication in the highest quality possible, the pharmacy can also guarantee the lowest prices. The PetCareRx customer service guarantee states that if a customer can find a lower price for the same FDA and EPA approved medication, the online pharmacy will match the price. Their price match guarantee even includes the cost of shipping. Of course, PetCareRx will only do so if the competitor is a Vet-VIPPS certified pharmacy, which means that they are a certified licensed pharmacy and sell only EPA and FDA approved medications.

WebVisible Empowers Small Business Advertisers

This is a sponsored guest post written by WebVisible on behalf of WebVisible. Post powered by Sponzai.

WebVisible is yet again empowering small business advertisers with unprecedented visibility and control over their online campaign performance. Their new Merchant Center 1.6 is complete with a battery of enhancements to the company’s easy-to-use, interactive campaign dashboard. Merchant Center provides local online advertisers and reseller partners 24/7 access to a search campaign’s performance, activity and results. WebVisible has also unveiled refinements to its award-winning Geneva Technology Platform, managing ad variations and providing extended location targeting. Geneva extends the capabilities of search engines to simplify campaign management. WebVisible’s commitment to excellence and constant research and development is what sets them in a league of their own.

New to Merchant Center 1.6 is an exclusive Call Mapping capability that enables advertisers to see exactly where calls are coming from on an interactive map, and thereby focus marketing efforts on high or low penetration areas. Call Mapping shows top locations by call volume, pegged to the advertiser’s service area. Complementing Call Mapping is a series of additional enhancements such as, Call Grading, Call Blocking, Call Exclusion and Call Control Panel.

Call Grading allows advertisers to easily rate calls to identify strong and weak leads; merchants can use this data to help tune campaign keywords and advertising content that drives the highest-value leads.

Call Blocking prevents unwanted callers, such as solicitors, from calling inbound sales lines by blocking their phone numbers -- but without losing call history.

Call Exclusion removes non-sales calls from campaign reports without blocking numbers, to increase accuracy of campaign metrics – again, without losing call history.

Call Control Panel consolidates Merchant Center 1.6 enhancements in a highly intuitive user interface, providing graphical analysis and push-button controls over various leads and channels.

This new technology makes the opportunity cost effective for small business owners who can’t afford to waste time on low value leads and distractions. Enhancements help them to see and attract the highest value business opportunities, and tune campaigns to make sure their ad dollars are working for them in the right service areas.

How an HMS Home Warranty Protects Your Financial Situation

This is a sponsored guest post written by HMS Home Warranty on behalf of HMS Home Warranty. Post powered by Sponzai.

Home insurance comes with the security of knowing that no matter what may happen in your life, you won't have to worry about losing your home to a disaster. The same can't be said for the breakdown of a major appliance, however. Not only that, but the possibility that a breakdown will occur is virtually guaranteed. It is a fact of life that appliances eventually get old and break down. At an absolute minimum, they will require regular maintenance in order to stay operational.

When a major appliance breaks down, it certainly isn't as devastating as losing a home. Even so, it can become a financial burden, and many families may have to reduce their quality of life for several months when something breaks down. Thankfully, there is a solution in order to deal with this problem. An HMS Home Warranty acts like an insurance plan for all of the major appliances in your home.

When an air conditioning system breaks down, it can cost over six thousand dollars to have it replaced. Other home repairs may not be as expensive, but even a washer or drier can cost as much as seven hundred dollars to replace. Often times, a family simply doesn't have that kind of cash on hand. This means that you would be forced to take on debt, or go without the appliance, in order to continue making your monthly payments on time.

With an HMS Home Warranty, you can eliminate these financial concerns. When you pay for an HMS Home Warranty, you know that you are paying for a service that you will ultimately need anyway. Appliances require maintenance and repair. This is simply the reality of any heavily used, long-lasting system. With an HMS Home Warranty, you can distribute the costs of these services without having to worry about taking on any debt.

My sign is Libra and shifted to Virgo. It may come as a surprise that there are different branches of astrology. You can read more here and here for more readings and understanding. But for the rest of us, whatever we read and know or whatever we believed in, we follow our heart and mind.

Dehumidifiers For Home

A dehumidifier is typically a household appliance that reduces the level of humidity in the air, usually for health reasons. Humid air can cause mold and mildew to grow inside homes, which has various health risks. Very high humidity levels are also unpleasant for human beings, can cause condensation and can make it hard to dry laundry or sleep. The best part is when you get your dehumidifier UK for your home. It is for good reason why we need dehumidifier at home.

Winter Season

It is snowing today! The cold weather during the winter season gives our home dampness that makes us uncomfortable. The dehumidifiers for home are excellent remedies to dampness in buildings and to maintain a clean dry and conformable home. They can also protect wooden objects, antiques and other furnishings which may be sensitive to damage from overly dry air.
