Trying to Find a Vampire Costume

Guest post by Terrell House:

My oldest daughter wants to be a vampire this year due to the popularity of the Twilight series. The problem was deciding how she would dress since the vampires in the books don't really look like the traditional vampires with the black cape lined in red satin. They just look like normal people without special outfits. After setting our home security Alarm systems we headed out the door to shop. Since there was no specific clothing we were looking for we decided the best way to depict the kind of vampire she wanted to be was with yellow contact lenses, white face make-up and gothic clothing. She also thought adding some interesting sharp teeth might help it seem more like a costume than just weird. We bought the teeth at Halloween Express. We had a harder time finding the contact lenses without a prescription and had to order them online. We found a black button up shirt with a collar and some lacey trim at the thrift store. We also found a pair of flouncy black dress pants that completed the look. She also found some long necklaces with black and silver charms to complete the look. Her plan was to starch the collar on the shirt so that it would stand up for a more dramatic look. She wore black button up boots to match.

Designed to Sell

Contribution by Paula Gonzales:

Designed to Sell is real estate based reality television show hosted by Clive Pearse, Shane Tallant, Michael Johnson, and Rachel Reenstra on HGTV (Home & Garden TV). It is a must see for real estate tv fans. I never miss a show on satellite tv from The show runs a half hour each episode and involves home renovation prior to being sold. Considering the premise and the slump the housing market has been in since the shows inception in 2004, it's amazing how long the shows been running.

The great thing about it though is that it gives you expert advice, redesign advice, professional carpenters all on a mere $2,000. Can I say that anyone looking to sell a fixer upper should definitely try to actually get on the show because they are always able to bump up the sales price by way way more than two grand. The big selling point of the show is that they do this within 3-7 days and before the house is to be shown all while staying under budget, adding an element of stress and tension. Another selling point is that every project requires some kind of over the top demolition derby, and demolishing things is never boring. It's especially comical to watch the homeowners reaction considering they know that the repair is to cost no more than $2000.

Halloween Means Pumpkins

Guest post written by Rick Hamby.

Every year as soon as it turns into October, my wife gets pumpkins on the brain. But I can't really complain because that means that she cooks all kinds of different delicious pumpkin things and shares them with me.

Every year she looks up a whole bunch of new recipes so that she can try out some new things. This year wasn't any different and while she was looking up stuff to make about a week ago she found and talked to me about switching over our internet service to it. We decided to do it because I think it will end up saving us some money in the end.

Well after all of that, she found some great pumpkin fritters recipe and made them teh other day for Sunday brunch. I thought they were a really great idea. And they tasted even better! Next Sunday IÕm going to try and make her some pumpkin pancakes. IÕm not sure how theyÕll end up tasting, but I hope that sheÕll like them.

Boomtown Casino in Biloxi

When I first saw this place, I had a good feeling because the design of the building is like Asian. This is the smallest casino in Biloxi and during hurricane Katrina, this casino was badly damage. I worked here for 10 months and I made good friends to some of the employees in this casino. I quit my job to pursue my masters degree and hopefully will be able to start my kindergarten school in Florida.
Working in this casino taught me humility and patience. Most of the people asked me if I love my job and my answer is just a SMILE.

Anyway, let me tell you that Boomtown is a good casino to visit IF you want TO WIN! Oh yeah! Locals love this casino because they always go home with winnings. The biggest tip that I got from the customer is a chip worth $25 and the smallest is $1, 'twas fun! I took these pictures after my job processing. Wheww! Days fly swifly! Did you know that this casino stays crowded most of the time especially weekends?
The second floor is where the buffet area. I have a heavy heart just thinking how I work so hard, almost fainting (too much work)!
This is the main entrance where employees in uniform were deprived to use, this is for customers only. Employees have different entrance.

If you happen to pass by Biloxi, Mississippi, check out Boomtown Casino.

We keep postponing our cruise vacation plan for the past months now because we can't figure out which month is the best to go. Definitely, next year we will pursue that trip. We are so pre- occupied with so many activities this year that why, it's alright.

A visit to the Carribean is a priority. We plan to book a week vacation to enjoy the good food and the best view of at least three islands. This is a Carnival Cruise taken in Alabama.

San Francisco Visit

My visit to San Francisco was actually a bonus when I fly to Los Angeles. My employer granted my request to have a 10 days day off with pay. It was worthwhile. We have two days and one night stay in San Francisco. It was not enough for me but, having traveled this far is what I was thankful for.

The picture above was taken near Lombard Street. The cable car is one of the best transportation in San Francisco to see the view of the place.

I love San Francisco and one of the beautiful places that I visited. My first train ride is right here in San Francisco too. San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California. The parking space here is truly bad. That is why, my friend took a subway train and park his car miles away from San Francisco. We were supposed to go to Alcatraz but, we run out of time. I will definitely go back and explore the place.

Popeye Tattoo

When I went to Los Angeles-California, my friends decided that we will go to San Francisco. I was so thrilled because we will be having a road trip. We leave LA at 10 AM and made few stops along the road and I enjoyed it a lot. I took some pictures which I will be sharing it here soon. Anyway, while we arrived in San Francisco, my friend Rose meet her friend named Doug. I saw a tattoo on his arm and he allowed me to take pictures for my blogging purposes. Isn't it cool? Well, I don't have any tattoo and don't have plans to have one.

I just find this amazing because Doug is a huge man and choosing this cartoon character is unlikely even though Popeye signify strength.
