Flower and Garden Festival at Disney World

Hi everyone, what will be your plan for today? No matter what it is, I am sure you will have a wonderful time. As for me, I asked my husband that we will go to Disney World after lunch to see the Flower and Garden Festival display. This event will run for almost 3 months so; we have the time to hop from one area to another. I know that celebrities from HGTV will have a show usually on weekends but I guess, I won't see them. We hate coming to theme parks on weekends. We give way to the tourists. I will be posting photos of this event. Come by tomorrow okay? Enjoy your Friday.

Radar Detectors are Genius

Our friend who drives his car fast has ridiculous number of speeding ticket. He had to go to a traffic school to keep him from getting points off his drivers license. But, that is not a deterrent because he still speeding. When the Best Radar Detector came on the market, he bought it. Now, it may sound funny but true because from then on, he never got any speeding ticket at all.

Best Radar Detectors 2011 really works perfect for his driving attitude. Even if he is impatient on the road but with this gadget, his driving is already controlled because he had the advanced warning especially when there is a speeding trap. Well, if you have problems with speeding traps, you should buy a radar detector now. Visit the links and purchase the product today. Drive safely everyone.

I'm Feeling Nostalgic

I saw these files in my Picasa album and I am having nostalgic right now. This is the front yard of my father-in-law's property and every morning we do gardening. This property was sold in 6 months after the family listed it in the market. Whenever I saw a garden and flowers, I remember my father-in-law. My husband and I were not in his bedside when he died. front yard gardenthe front of the housepart of the front yardback yard
Actually, it's hard to maintain a big yard. When winter comes, gardening stops and the leaves will be piling up again, few inches high, LOL. But, gardening here is fun. It gives us something to do, It takes our boredom away and gives my father-in-law a hobby. It's all memories now. My husband and I miss him.

In my college days, I enjoyed reading history books. The Renaissance, Roman Empire, Ancient History, Medieval times as well as the travels of Marco Polo and Magellan fascinated me. Reading the history books made my imagination wander back in time where they fought against their enemies and became triumphant at certain times. It was like watching a movie. I read about the Barbarians, the Turks and the Spartan from Ancient Greek era. Fascinating stories but, here we are at present times, enjoying the freedom and living a good life of harmonious society. Gone are those era of fighting, deaths and winning battles over a piece of land right? Our generation now is so much better even if we have Spartan these days, it's all good stuffs!

Family Safety First and Foremost

When we are younger, we love the adrenalin rush rides and the heart-stopping action. We usually are driven with impulse and just love to do things out of curiosity. We keep pushing our luck of what's beyond. And when it comes to cars, we fancy bold and creative designs, and how fast it can run on the road. Not that we don't care about our lives.

It is just a normal part of our lives that we love the excitement. But, things definitely changes as we grow up. Our outlook for life and choices we make take a notch higher when we have a family to protect.

When daddies and mommies select cars, family safety comes first and foremost. You know that this is true right? We go for highly rated car especially on safety and reliability, comfort and performance. For my family, I go for SUV type of car and I will definitely buy from a Trusted Dealers by mommies and daddies.

A family needs a big car for comfort and can deliver a smooth ride so that baby can sleep well at the back seat. A family would prefer driving car that is dependable and most of all safe to drive.

Don't Bother Me

Just sharing one sign that I saw hanging at the doorknob of our friend's place. I just find it amusing knowing someone has that attitude in the morning. You can't talk to him literally if he had not taken any coffee.
Are you this type of person?

Splash Mountain at Disney World

One of the best attractions in Disney World is the Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom.The twists, turns and 3 dips that lead to the grand drop down 5 stories of rushing water is the thrilling ride of all. If you sit in the front or sit on the right side of the hollowed-out log, you will definitely get wet.We sit at the back. The last drop was scary but, since it was just a split second of falling, I was able to hang on.If you love the adrenalin rush, you will like this ride. I don't think if I can ride this again, the last drop is just too scary for me LOL.I thought I can't ride it but, it was fun. I managed but, was screaming...well, all of us did anyway.Splash Mountain is a thrilling ride. If you are seeking for fast rides, this is just one of them. It really gives you the thrill!

Cultural Adventures

Contributed by Maria Ruiz:

When my family bought a vacation home in Tucson, Arizona, I knew that, while we were buying in one of the most gorgeous and cultural cities in the country, my children would not wish to be without a television on their visits to the great southwest! I went in search of the best Dish TV deals and got the connection scheduled and made before we made our first trip back with the kids. There is so much to see and do in Tucson. I love God’s handiwork in the desert, mountains, and open ranges there. I enjoy the spas and art museums and my husband loves that the weather is perfect for playing golf almost every single day of the year! There is a lot of cultural history there and my children are being educated without even realizing it every time to head out for a new adventure. The food is fabulous and the people are amazing! I think we will truly enjoy the family vacations we have here and will create lasting memories for my children to carry with them forever.

Wi-Fi Hot Spot at Festival Place at Nassau Port

I took this picture while I was on board of the Norwegian Sky Cruise Ship. The Festival Place serves as the welcome place at Nassau Port. I saw some Filipino employees of the ship heading to this place with their laptop. The center area has a good spot for WiFi so; everyone was taking advantage.The rate of the WiFi connection on the cruise ship was a bit expensive. In fact, I purchase for an hour just to check on my emails. But as we arrived Nassau Port, I found the WiFi connection coming from Festival Place. If it is windy, the connection is bad. You need to go down inside and you can connect easily.

It was very chilly and freezing cold.It was Mardi Gras season too so, New Orleans was jam packed with so many people coming from different states.

Which is the Best: Short Sale or Foreclosure Property

A short sale is any real estate sale where the proceeds due to the seller at closing will be insufficient to cover the amount owed plus closing costs and commissions. We bid more than a dozen short sale properties and luckily, we bought two properties which we love. After two years, hubby and I decided to buy another property listed either short sale or foreclosures.

Now, foreclosure is a legal process where a mortgage lender files suit against a homeowner for failing to make their mortgage payments as promised in the mortgage agreement. So, the question is, which is a better deal?
Foreclosures make up only 5% of the active listings, which is really sad for buyers like us. This type of property is sold quickly, due to aggressive pricing and quick response by the seller.
Short sales on the other hand would take months to sell and hard to close. The latest property that we bid was a short sale. We gamble and waited for days, weeks and finally, the mortgage bank gave their decision after 3 months. That's a waste of time and effort especially when they demand for a higher price. We had to walk away!

Short sale properties are usually listed very low. If you can buy a short sale property, you got a bang from your investment. Foreclosure properties are also a good buy but, start praying that there is no multiple offers. If that is the case, the higher bidder gets the property.

The New Apple iPad

Oh yeah, Apple product! This is my Apple iPad2 16 GB which I got last year for FREE, thanks to Bumble Bee and Sponsoredtweets of IZEA company. Bumble Bee was promoting a tuna product (good for the heart) last year and I was among the chosen few to write about the campaign. Joining the sweepstakes iPad2 give-away was one of the requirements and I have to "tweet" it. After three months, I received an email from IZEA company that I won the sweepstakes! Awesome huh?I love my iPad2 because it's handy and convenient to use. It's one of the gadgets that I always have with me when I go out. Just this week, Apple iPad released the the third generation iPad. According to the new TV ad, the retina display of the new, third generation iPad is spectacular. I love looking at the pictures in my iPad2 and already amazed with the colors and lifelike pictures. But, with the new iPad, they enhanced it and making it more crispier and vibrant. I am curious now! The size of both iPads are the same but, the depth and weight of the new iPad is more. Battery life for both iPads are the same: 10 hours.Here is the new iPad: stunning graphics, A5X chip, and with the highest resolution display ever on a mobile device. Enhancing the display means enhancing everything. The retina display on the third generation iPad is really great. The resolution is 4x more than the iPad2.If you plan to buy an iPad. Buy the new iPad because of the following: It has Ultrafast 4G LTE, has 5MP iSight Camera, and of course, the breakthrough of Retina Display. You can buy an iPad2 16GB for $399 but, the third generation iPad 16GB, you can buy $499. Good luck and enjoy your iPad!

Flipping Houses

We have been looking for a house for 6 months now. We are not lucky this time because we were out bid by other bidders. We bid more than a dozen of houses but, after the inspection which we pay willingly out-of-pocket, we walk away. We've seen properties that are money-pit so, we walk away. Last Friday, our realtor told us that the bank raised the market price on the last house that we bid for a staggering 14K. That's a lot! So, we walk away too. Now, we are back to square one and this time, no more short sale!We bid one house yesterday and the owner told us that we will hear a response in three days. Well, we are ready to flip this property and make the landscaping awesome. We are hoping for a positive response this week.
