No Means No

I think a lot of parents feel it’s important to explain their reasoning to their children in an attempt to get them to understand. Realize that along the way, wanting your child to understand can easily shift into wanting their approval, or their acceptance of your reasons. When this happens, parents can get stuck in a dynamic where they’re over-explaining things to their children. I personally think that once you’ve given your child a reasonable amount of input, any further explanation defeats the purpose. Have you fallen into the habit of over-explaining and over-negotiating with your child? If so, it’s likely that every time he wants to challenge your authority, decision, or rule, you keep talking to him in order to get him to understand why you’ve made the rule in the first place. And often as your child gets older, you'll find yourself compromising some more and changing the rules a little more. Understand that what you’re really doing is training your child not to accept the rules. Read Full Article

Get Rid Of The Belly Fat

I hate the winter. It is so hard to get rid of my belly. I want to lose some fat so bad but the cold seems to keep it on me. I found a great fat burner which might just do the trick. If I can burn my fat through the cold weather when it turns warm again then for sure I will shed the pounds. I can walk and run for miles but when it is cold the fat just seems to stick to me. So no matter what I just want to get rid of this belly fat and look thin like a model that I know I am lol. So even if I exercise then I can lose all this weight with a little bit of help from the fat burners.

Veterans Day

November 11: General Interest 1918 : World War I ends At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France. The First World War left nine million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded, with Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France, and Great Britain each losing nearly a million or more lives. In addition, at least five million civilians died from disease, starvation, or exposure. On June 28, 1914, in an event that is widely regarded as sparking the outbreak of World War I, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire, was shot to death with his wife by Bosnian Serb Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, Bosnia. Ferdinand had been inspecting his uncle's imperial armed forces in Bosnia and Herzegovina, despite the threat of Serbian nationalists who wanted these Austro-Hungarian possessions to join newly independent Serbia. Austria-Hungary blamed the Serbian government for the attack and hoped to use the incident as justification for settling the problem of Slavic nationalism once and for all. However, as Russia supported Serbia, an Austro-Hungarian declaration of war was delayed until its leaders received assurances from German leader Kaiser Wilhelm II that Germany would support their cause in the event of a Russian intervention. On July 28, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, and the tenuous peace between Europe's great powers collapsed. On July 29, Austro-Hungarian forces began to shell the Serbian capital, Belgrade, and Russia, Serbia's ally, ordered a troop mobilization against Austria-Hungary. France, allied with Russia, began to mobilize on August 1. France and Germany declared war against each other on August 3. After crossing through neutral Luxembourg, the German army invaded Belgium on the night of August 3-4, prompting Great Britain, Belgium's ally, to declare war against Germany. For the most part, the people of Europe greeted the outbreak of war with jubilation. Most patriotically assumed that their country would be victorious within months. Of the initial belligerents, Germany was most prepared for the outbreak of hostilities, and its military leaders had formatted a sophisticated military strategy known as the "Schlieffen Plan," which envisioned the conquest of France through a great arcing offensive through Belgium and into northern France. Russia, slow to mobilize, was to be kept occupied by Austro-Hungarian forces while Germany attacked France. The Schlieffen Plan was nearly successful, but in early September the French rallied and halted the German advance at the bloody Battle of the Marne near Paris. By the end of 1914, well over a million soldiers of various nationalities had been killed on the battlefields of Europe, and neither for the Allies nor the Central Powers was a final victory in sight. On the western front--the battle line that stretched across northern France and Belgium--the combatants settled down in the trenches for a terrible war of attrition. In 1915, the Allies attempted to break the stalemate with an amphibious invasion of Turkey, which had joined the Central Powers in October 1914, but after heavy bloodshed the Allies were forced to retreat in early 1916. The year 1916 saw great offensives by Germany and Britain along the western front, but neither side accomplished a decisive victory. In the east, Germany was more successful, and the disorganized Russian army suffered terrible losses, spurring the outbreak of the Russian Revolution in 1917. By the end of 1917, the Bolsheviks had seized power in Russia and immediately set about negotiating peace with Germany. In 1918, the infusion of American troops and resources into the western front finally tipped the scale in the Allies' favor. Germany signed an armistice agreement with the Allies on November 11, 1918. World War I was known as the "war to end all wars" because of the great slaughter and destruction it caused. Unfortunately, the peace treaty that officially ended the conflict--the Treaty of Versailles of 1919--forced punitive terms on Germany that destabilized Europe and laid the groundwork for World War II.

TV Stand For Your TV

It is funny but our living room always has to have a TV. But the old fashion TV's always took up a lot of room. I mean the big TV's that were like three or four feet wide because of the space from the wall to keep them cool. But now we have this awesome thin screen that give back so much room in the living room. The thing we need now is a great tv stand which will make sure we take up much less room. So now that I have a TV that does not take up half the living room I need a stand that will take up only half the wall. It is so much fun to organize the living room now that I have more options.

Best Way To Help Your Kid

Many parents write in to EP about homework battles with their kids. They want to know what to do about a child who procrastinates or who just can’t seem to stay focused on the task at hand. This week James Lehman shares tried and true methods to get kids to sit down and do the work. Homework becomes a power struggle as soon as you try to force your child to do his work and he pushes back. Many parents are trapped in this battle nightly: they’re pulling one way while their child is pulling the other, and in the meantime, no work is getting done at all. Often, when kids start resisting, parents try to use power to get them to do their homework, but for many kids, that will only make matters worse. In fact, you may find that if you threaten your child with punishments or use power to get him to comply, he will simply become more aggressive and more defensive as he digs in his heels—and resists even more.

Stop Smelling Like An Ashtray

My friend has been addicted to nicotine for so many years. I have always felt bad for him that he could not stop smoking. I could see that it was making him look so old and wrinkles in his face start to grow. But I found this new product for him. He can use the electronic cigarette which does not use the smoke to deliver the nicotine. I'm hoping that he can quit it all together but even if he does not quit now at least that smoke is gone and he is not making his face look old and making his car and house smell like an ashtray.

We Must Serve Or We Die

He Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve. Mark 10:45

Dr. Paul Brand told me of a memorable Frenchman named Pierre, who had served in Parliament until he became disillusioned with the slow pace of political change. During a harsh winter, many Parisian beggars froze to death. In desperation, Pierre became a friar to work among them and organize the beggars themselves.

They divided into teams to scour the city for bottles. Next, he led them to build a warehouse out of discarded bricks and start a business processing the bottles. Finally, he gave each beggar responsibility to help another poorer than himself. The project caught on. In a few a one to serve.”

At a leprosy colony in India, Pierre met patients worse off than his former beggars. Returning to France, he mobilized the beggars to build a leprosy ward at a hospital in India.

It is you who have saved us,” he told the grateful patients. “We must serve or we die.” Philip Yancey

Find a better Car insurance rate today

I have a friend who was in a couple of accidents in a short period of time. She was dropped by her insurance and was unable to find an insurance company who would give her a good rate. I told her that she should look for a good auto insurance quote online and she would find a better rate than before she had her accidents. She was surprised at how easy it was because she had never checked things out online. She was not quite able to find good rates better than before her accidents but she was able to find rates that were pretty close. So imagine if she had looked before her accidents!

Auction For A Cause

It’s been a month since typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng brought havoc in the lives of many Filipinos and yet up to now, there is still an outpour of help in the relief and rehabilitation efforts coming from different sectors to support those that have been affected.

A lot of showbiz personalities joined forces as well in helping out the flood victims.

Angel Locsin, a Red Cross Ambassador, spearheaded a campaign that will benefit typhoon victims and asked help from her celebrity friends—Anne Curtis, Dimples Romana and Kris Aquino to donate for her project called "Shop & Share." This is an online auction which showcases personal designer items of showbiz personalities whose proceeds will go to the Philippines. Read more..

Awkward Boy

The husband son is getting to that age when his face is starting to break out. Of course he is awkward enough without having those huge blemishes on his face. So I think that an acne treatment will really help his self esteem. Even better if we can find a natural product to get rid of the acne or at least make them not so frequent. It seem that for eternity it has been a battle for his age and though it will never go away at least there are natural ways today to tame it.

Off From Work Today

I am off from work today because the husband and I went to USCIS Baltimore for my biometrics. Last month I sent out my package for my I-1751 Removal of Conditions Status. Thankfully, it was quicker than I could imagine. So, today my appointment for my biometrics was 10 AM, it was just right time when we got there and in 5 minutes I was done. Much easier than I thought huh! Now, I just sit and relax while waiting for my approval and possibly my 10 yr green card-:) Last step will be my Citizenship. Btw, I have huge decision to make If I want to be an American Citizen or not hehe, hopefully next year. Will see..... Good luck to all who are still on the process, everything will be fine as long as you have everything they need.

Training On An Elliptical

Lately, the husband always tells me about his knee was in pain every time he went for a run. While he is trying to get into shape it is difficult to go out and run or even stay inside and use a tread mill. So he really is thinking about getting an elliptical trainer. Ellipticals have the advantage of having less impact on the joints. So you can put in the miles and the hours need to shed those unwanted pounds with out suffering afterward from those seriously debilitating joint aches. Sometimes, after a run he cannot walk for many days. So I know this will go along way to making him skinny once again.

Believe In Yourself

"For you have been my hope, O Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth." – Psalm 71:5 The glass elevator in our Tower of Hope was inspired by the El Cortez Hotel in San Diego. The owners of the elegant hotel decided they needed additional elevators, so they hired a group of architects and engineers to figure out the best location, both in terms of appearance and cost. If they put the elevators inside the hotel, they would have to cut a hole in all the floors. What a mess! Plaster dust would be everywhere. As the planners stood deliberating over where to place the elevators, a janitor overhead the conversation. He thought about the horrible mess the hotel was going to be in while all the reconstruction was going on. And the more he thought about it, the braver he became. Finally he approached the group of men and said, "Why don't you put the elevators outside the building?" Nobody had thought of that! The professionals listened and the idea clicked in their imagination. "Why not?" they said. "It's never been done before, but let's try and see how we could do it." So the elevators were built outside the El Cortez Hotel. Since then, many well-known buildings have done the same thing! Common people can be brilliant if they only believe in their own ideas! I don't care who you are. I don't care how poor you are. I don't care how educated you are. I don't care what your race it. I don't care where you are on the economic ladder. You have the same basic brain as any other human being! Believe in yourself. * * * Have you ever abandoned a "brilliant" idea because you lacked self-confidence? Maybe it's time to go back and take a second look!

Keep Away The Food

It was funny I keep buying slimmer for my shirt because I cannot help but eat too much. But I think better than to buy a slimmer would be to try an appetite suppressant. If the food does not pass between my lips then it will not settle on my hips. I am good until I get hungry then I eat what ever I see. Well, actually I am good for few hours and I can resist for then but eventually it over comes me and I break down and give in and eat. So if I could get rid of my appetite then I know for sure that I could keep these extra pounds off.

Making A World Record?

I've been following this story of Jessica, a very young sailor trying to make a world record. The youngest sailor who tried to sail around the world. I find it very interesting because it was a lot of going on before she started to sail. If you want to read the whole story click HERE.. I cannot wait more update from her.

Keep Yourself Young Forever

Really, I am not as old as I look. I think the wrinkles around my eyes make me look old for sure! I think I need to try some wrinkle cream to hide those flaws which make me look old. Actually, I am not thinking about myself but my best friend. I look so young but she looks old because of her wrinkles. I have been smart enough for years to use cream to keep me youthful. If you look youthful then you feel young and so you are beautiful. It's up to you if you follow my lead so you don't end up like my friend looking old because of wrinkles!

Moving Coast to Coast

It is one think to move across town. You can usually arrange so that you can move out of one house and into the other on the same day. You can even use your own truck to get it done, or at least rent one on your own. But moving from one side of the country to the other is a different story all together. There is nothing like cross country moving because it is hard to entrust all your earthly possession to a stranger and then see if everything is there in one piece weeks or sometimes months later. Luckily, there are companies that help to make sure you find that right mover and save you some money at the same time.

Rejoicing Of My Heart

Your Word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart. — Jeremiah 15:16

For centuries, many Christians were not permitted to read God’s Word in their own language. Instead, they were encouraged to attend Latin services that few could understand.

Then, in 1516, the Dutch scholar Erasmus compiled and published the first New Testament in the original Greek language. This landmark work was the basis for the later publication of Luther’s German Bible, Tyndale’s English Bible, and the King James Version. These translations made the Scriptures understandable to millions of people around the world.

Erasmus could not have known the influence his Greek New Testament would have, but he did have a passion for getting its message to laypeople from all walks of life. In the preface he wrote: “I would have [the Gospels and the Epistles] translated into all languages …. I long for the plowboy to sing them to himself as he follows the plow [and] the weaver to hum them to the tune of his shuttle.”

The prophet Jeremiah reflected this same passion for the Word: “Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your Word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart” (15:16).

Protect Your Computer

I hate when I get a virus on my computer. It really drives me crazy because it takes days to get it fixed and then sometimes things do not get fixed correctly and then I have to reload all my programs. I think it would just be easier if we got some antivirus software installed on our computer just to keep those viruses off the computer and then I would never have to reload all my programs and pull out my hair. I am sure the husband will find the right one to protect us.

Brighten Your Room

I keep thinking that the best way to make my house look like a million dollars is to put a nice sconce in the living room. I think I would like to put at least three in my living room and maybe I could use a few more in my dining room. They really do not cost that much and you can put a candle on each one that not only adds to the room with visual beauty but also if you chose the right candles you can have wonderful cent. So not only is your room looking bright but it smells bright.

Devastated Typhoon Hit Philippines

What better way to take those extra pounds off than to feel like a kid again.

Thank God, I am Safe

I can't believe what happened to me this week. When I drove to work early in the morning I hit the deer. I didn't saw him jumped in front of my car and the last thing I saw he was on the street lying because the car behind me hit him too. I am lucky that I got through that situation uninjured. I called the husband sounded so nervous, he told me not to worry about it he's going to fix my car what is more important I am safe. So, I keep on driving wondering how much damage my car would be. When I arrived to my work place I checked on my car quickly, thankfully was not totaled. Just my license plate was tearing apart. I really thought my car wrecked pretty bad. Thank God, HE watched over me... have a good night everyone, till my next post....

Elegant Sink For Your House

I just found an awesome sink for our bathroom. Have you ever looked at stone sinks? I think they look so elegant and would be the highlight of our bathroom if we installed one. It would take our plain boring bathroom and make it extraordinary. Now I will be dreaming all night about redecorating our bathroom. I will not be happy with just the plain looking bathroom we have now. I just love to dream for sure.

Say Yes To A Dream

"The Lord said, 'Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?' And I said, 'Here am I. Send me!'" – Isaiah 6:8

"What would you do if you knew you could not fail?" How often has Dr. Robert H. Schuller challenged us with those words? Yet how many even dare to give voice to such dreams? It is not your lack of skills, or education, or knowledge that holds you back from reaching your full potential. It's your lack of faith, your inability to believe in yourself and in God. Imagine standing before God at the end of your life and being shown all that you could have done had you just had more faith! God's work needs people just like you who are courageous enough to dream big. The bigger your dream, the more you can do for others. Think of all the people you can help just by saying yes to God's dream for your life. Say "Yes" to God today.

Tired Of Your Old Computer?

It seems like every few years I like to switch from a desktop computer to a laptop computer. I get tired of each after awhile. I have been looking at the new netbooks. I think that a netbook might be what I need right now. It is small and portable so I can carry any where I go. The cool thing is you can get the internet almost anywhere on them now. So you can just be sitting in the park and searching the internet at the same time. I think my next computer will be a netbook for sure!

Nitey Nitey

It's been few days since I logged in to my blogs. Honestly, I really miss my blog hopping routine. Seemed I don't have anymore time to blog hop since I had my full time job. I have been so busy for the past few months especially with crazy over time days at work. I don't even have time to spend with my Babe Dako-:( I wish I could make up with him eventually lol..... have a good night everyone. Till my next post.

Need An Exam Tables?

I have a really bad cold that has gotten me feeling terrible. So I went to the doctor to see if he can do anything to make the cold go away faster and at least get rid of my cough. While I was in the exam room waiting for the doctor I looked the table I was sitting on. I started to wonder where the Doctors find exam tables? I wonder if you could find them online or do you have to be a doctor to own one. I guess it would be sort of weird to have a doctor's exam table sitting in the middle of your house. I think will get a new couch for the house before we get an exam table.

Bread Of Our Life

Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes. — Deuteronomy 8:11 Alexandr Solzhenitsyn said that he learned to pray in a Siberian concentration camp because he had no other hope. Before his arrest, when things were going well, he seldom gave God a thought. Similarly, the Israelites learned the habit of depending on God in the Sinai wilderness where they had no choice; they needed His daily intervention just to eat and drink. But when they finally stood on the banks of the Jordan River, they awaited a more difficult test of faith. After they entered the land of plenty, would they soon forget God? The Israelites knew little about the seductions of other cultures, having spent their lives in the desert. Moses was more afraid of the coming prosperity than the rigors of the desert — the alluring sensuality, the exotic religions, the glittering wealth. The Israelites might put God behind them and credit themselves for their success (Deut. 8:11, 17). Ironically, success makes it harder to depend on the Lord. The Israelites did prove less faithful after they moved into the Promised Land. Again and again they turned their hearts to other gods. Beware of the temptation that success brings. There is grave danger in getting what we want. — Philip Yancey I blindly ask for what I crave With haughty heart and will so stout; He oft denies me what I seek, But gives me grace to do without. — Anon. READ: Deuteronomy 8:6-18

Looking For Wrinkle Treatment?

Every girl and woman I know is worried about eventually getting wrinkles. Even though many girls are too young for wrinkles they think about what they can do to avoid them when they get older. If you want to find a wrinkle treatment that you can start now to prevent them or if you already have wrinkles there are treatments you can do to minimize if not get rid of them. It is never to early or too late to start a good treatment for your skin. Having nice skin is an asset to a beautiful body and figure. Never let those wrinkle be visible on your skin.

Want To Achieve The New Look Of Your Home?

The husband really wants to remodel the kitchen. He is thinking about putting down porcelain tile. It would really take our kitchen to the next level. He is even thinking about putting in the bathroom. We have decided to do little remodeling projects one at a time and improve things slowly over time. We put in some lights last weekend and it really changed the way the whole kitchen looks. We noticed that some parts were dirty because of all the new lights.

Roots Or Shoots?

Because they had no root they withered away. — Matthew 13:6 In the life of trees, one key to survival is having more roots than shoots. In his book Oak: The Framework of Civilization, author William Bryant Logan says, “If a tree puts on a lot of top growth and few roots, it is liable to be weak-wooded and short-lived . . . If a tree puts down a great deal of roots and adds shoots more slowly, however, it is liable to be long-lived and more-resistant to stress and strain.” People and organizations can be like trees. The rise to prominence is exhilarating, but anything that puts up shoots faster than it puts down roots is fragile and in danger of breaking, falling, or dying. Jesus used a similar analogy in His parable of the sower. People who hear the Word and receive it joyfully are like seed sown on stony places; they spring up quickly but endure only a short time because they have no roots (Matt. 13:6, 20-21). Roots aren’t at all glamorous, but they are the source of our strength. If our roots go deep in the knowledge of God (Jer. 9:24) and our lives are hidden in Christ (Col 3:3), we’ll be strong, resistant to blight, and more likely to survive the storms of adversity. How deep are your roots? — Julie Ackerman Link Lord, keep me from being envious of the beautiful and the seemingly powerful. May I use Your resources to put down roots that will make me strong rather than branches that will make me attractive. Amen. READ: Matthew 13:6 The roots of stability, come from being grounded in God’s Word and prayer.

Act Now Before Its Too Late

I am sure you have seen on the news all about the current debate about health insurance. Well, surprisingly the government has done nothing yet. If you need insurance now then you need to look at this insurance plan. You need to check out short term health insurance NC. If you are expecting the government to take care of your insurance I think you are mistaken. Even if all the plans pass the congress today it will be months before it takes effect and you might just be in trouble if you get really sick. You need insurance today even if it is short term.

Looking For Fat Burners That Works?

I cannot wait to harvest the corn that I planted-:) Feels good to reap what you sow!

Any plans to redo your bathroom?

I found a great site with discount faucets. I was not thinking that we need to redo our whole bathroom and today I saw some great faucets and it made me think about redoing our entire bathroom. Of course we can just change the sink but I think once you change the sink the rest of the bathroom looks old and needs to be updated. Not only the sink but also the bathtub. Well, I have to ask the husband and see what he thinks about it all.

Soup On Weekend

Soup, Soup, Soup. I love to make soup for sure!The funny thing is the husband thought while watching me cook, the soup was like what his Grandma made. But then he took a spoon full and wow it was spicy haha! I put at least a dozen of green chili peepers that he picked from the garden and it was very hot. I tell you, I was very sweaty eating the soup lol. Honestly, my Babe Dako loved the soup even though he was surprised that it was freakin' HOT lol.

Blackhead Problems?

I really hate when I get those blackheads. I feel like I scrub my face for many hours every night before I go to bed and yet I still get them. I want to punch the mirror when I see them. I just want to have a nice clear complexion. Now, I found a good website that I think will help to keep my face looking nice and clean. I am excited to try out their advice and show all my friends at work how my face looks so beautiful.

Do you like banana bread?

Hmmm, I love to make banana bread when I have time. Seems like when I have ripe banana I never have the time to make the bread. Finally, this weekend I had ripe, black banana and the desire to cook bread at the same time. The husband was soooooo excited to eat all the banana bread. He was sad that I had to hide the rest from him lol. If I did not hide from him it would be all gone in few minutes hehe yum...

Do you want to get slim and be happy?

I am so frustrated this summer. I cannot lose those pounds that I gained over the winter. I could scream for sure now that the summer is almost gone. There is only about a month left I am still too shy to go outside in my bathing suite because of the bulge in my waist. So really for sure I am going to try some diet pills to help lose those pounds. I found some great diet pills review to help me pick what will help me the most. Let see what will happen.

Games For Your Kid

My Babe Dako's son is having a birthday next week. We were thinking about what kind of gift he would like for his birthday. I know that he likes to play video games and he can play for many hours. So, we are thinking of getting him a playstation 3. We found that they have some really good prices online. So not only will we get him a great gift but we will keep him occupied for hours and hours. I know he would love to get such a great gift.

Our 3rd Year Wedding Anniversary

Today is our Wedding Anniversary. We have now been married for three whole years. It is hard to believe that the time has passed by so quickly. I can't express how much my Babe Dako means so much to me. He completes my life and makes me whole. I know that I always tell my Babe Dako how much I love him. Without each other, our lives would be so empty. We're best friend and even the day we spend apart at work makes us miss each other. We both love to come home in the evening and hear how our day went. We take care each other. Words cannot express how much we need each other for the rest of our lives. Love you Babe Dako, this is only the third of many Anniversaries to come.

Silent Helper

I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things. — Isaiah 25:1 The discovery of penicillin revolutionized health care. Prior to the 1940s, bacterial infections were often fatal. Since then, penicillin has saved countless lives by killing harmful bacteria. The men who recognized its potential and developed it for widespread use won a Nobel Prize in 1945. Long before the discovery of penicillin, other silent killers were at work saving lives by destroying bacteria. These silent killers are white blood cells. These hard workers are God’s way of protecting us from disease. No one knows how many invasions they have stopped or how many lives they have saved. They receive little recognition for all the good they do. The Lord gets similar treatment. He often gets blamed when something goes wrong, but He seldom gets credit for all the things that go right. Every day people get up, get dressed, drive to work or school or the grocery store, and return safely to their families. No one knows how many times God has protected us from harm. But when there is a tragedy, we ask, “Where was God?” When I consider all the wonderful things that God does silently on my behalf each day (Isa. 25:1), I realize that my list of praises should be much longer than my list of petitions. — Julie Ackerman Link God’s goodness under girds our lives In many silent ways; His blessings are beyond compare — For them we give Him praise.

New Kitchen Floor For Your House Improvement

We are thinking about redoing our kitchen. There are a lot of things we need to decide. One of the biggest decisions though is what kind of floor we are going to put in. We are tired of the floor we have now so we are thinking of putting in ceramic tile. It would be such a huge improvement that it would really make our kitchen look a hundred times better. Next will be what kind of cabinets we will get that match with everything inside the house.

Life Gives You What You Expect

What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways." – Job 22:28. The happiest people in life don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just try to make the best of everything. They're like the person in a remote village going to a well everyday to get water who says, "Every time I come to this well, I come away with my bucket full!" instead of, "I can't believe I have to keep coming back to this well to fill up my bucket. " A person's attitude has a profound influence on his approach to life. Ask a coach before a big game whether his attitude and that of his players will make a difference in the outcome of the game. Ask a surgeon if the patient's attitude matters when she's trying to save that life in an emergency room. Ask a teacher if students' attitudes have an impact before they take a test. One of the things I've learned is that life often gives you whatever you expect from it. If you expect bad things, those are what you get. If you expect good things, you often receive them. I don't know why it works that way, but it does. If you don't believe me, try it out. Give yourself thirty days in which you expect the best of everything: the best parking place, the best table in the restaurant, the best interaction with clients, the best treatment from service people. You'll be surprised by what you encounter, especially if you give your very best to others in every situation as well.

More Anniversary To Celebrate

I used to post in my blog every month about our monthsary/ wedding anniversary. For some reasons, I am so busy in work I don't write here anymore. So, when I was at work today, I remember today is 25th and it's our 2 years and 11 wedding monthsary. Yesterday was our 3 years and 10 months since I first met my Babe Dako online. Years and months had past and seems we just got married. I am so grateful marrying the best husband in the world. He never change and he's still the man I've meet few years ago. Babe Dako, Happy Anniversary! I wish, we still have more monthsary to celebrate together.

Thinking About Making A Trip?

The other weekend, the co-workers and I went to Atlantic City, New Jersey to play Casino. It was fun and I tell you, that was my first ever played the Casino. I was hooked and hoping to go back there again. However, next time we go to Las Vegas for few nights because it is more fun and exciting to play there than in Atlantic City. You know, with the down turn in the economy it is actually a really good time to take a trip to Vegas though. All the Las Vegas hotels have some really good rates to try and experience with. We found a great website to find all those great deals. You can get their cheap and stay there cheap so you can be sure to lose all your money at the casino instead of in your hotel.

Are You at War with Your Defiant Child?

Do you ever feel as if your relationship with your child has become one long, drawn-out (and exhausting) power struggle? If you're in this situation, it probably seems like you progress from nagging your child over dirty laundry on the floor in the morning to arguing about bedtime at night. In Part I of this two-part series by James Lehman, MSW, you’ll see why the struggle for power is an inherent part of growing up, and learn how to tell if the resistance you’re getting from your child is normal or if it’s crossed the line into defiance and needs to be addressed. (And stay tuned for Part II, where James will give you hands-on advice about how to defuse it!). Click Here to read full article

Fixing The Router

The husband and I live in a house next to our parents and we are able to use their wireless internet connection. Unfortunately, their router died I think just because it was old. It had been in use for a number of years. So, I decided to replace it with a brand new Linksys router. There is also a great website to get it from. It is funny how much you miss the internet when it is not working. So we need to fix it fast.

Good Reading History

1788 : U.S. Constitution ratified New Hampshire becomes the ninth and last necessary state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, thereby making the document the law of the land. By 1786, defects in the post-Revolutionary War Articles of Confederation were apparent, such as the lack of central authority over foreign and domestic commerce. Congress endorsed a plan to draft a new constitution, and on May 25, 1787, the Constitutional Convention convened at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. On September 17, 1787, after three months of debate moderated by convention president George Washington, the new U.S. constitution, which created a strong federal government with an intricate system of checks and balances, was signed by 38 of the 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the convention. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states. Beginning on December 7, five states--Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut--ratified it in quick succession. However, other states, especially Massachusetts, opposed the document, as it failed to reserve undelegated powers to the states and lacked constitutional protection of basic political rights, such as freedom of speech, religion, and the press. In February 1788, a compromise was reached under which Massachusetts and other states would agree to ratify the document with the assurance that amendments would be immediately proposed. The Constitution was thus narrowly ratified in Massachusetts, followed by Maryland and South Carolina. On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the document, and it was subsequently agreed that government under the U.S. Constitution would begin on March 4, 1789. In June, Virginia ratified the Constitution, followed by New York in July. On September 25, 1789, the first Congress of the United States adopted 12 amendments to the U.S. Constitution--the Bill of Rights--and sent them to the states for ratification. Ten of these amendments were ratified in 1791. In November 1789, North Carolina became the 12th state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island, which opposed federal control of currency and was critical of compromise on the issue of slavery, resisted ratifying the Constitution until the U.S. government threatened to sever commercial relations with the state. On May 29, 1790, Rhode Island voted by two votes to ratify the document, and the last of the original 13 colonies joined the United States. Today the U.S. Constitution is the oldest written constitution in operation in the world. More Reading..

Shedding Some Pounds?

My husband Babe Dako is working so hard to lose weight. This weekend he walked 15 miles just to lose a few pounds. But even still I think he would like to get a little bit of help. I had a friend recommend he should try Lipovox for that little extra kick. Losing weight is not easy because you are fighting your nature to store fat. So it never hurts to have little bit of help from a pill. I am so proud of my husband Babe Dako because he has worked so hard to take off his weight and he has really come a long way.

GOOD TIPS- STRATEGIES FOR ADVANCEMENT

You and you alone control the things that lead to personal success in the workplace Whether you’re working toward a promotion, hoping for a salary increase or bonus, or simply want to be recognized as a valuable member of your company, it’s essential that you fine-tune your skills and form superior work habits Here are some get-ahead basics to help you improve your chances for advancement. 1. Maintain an excellent attendance record. The first step on the ladder of success is reliability. You must be there, serious illness aside. Your manager must know he or she can depend on you. Take steps to solve any problems that cause you to be habitually late or absent. If you can’t solve the problems that cause your absenteeism or tardiness by yourself, tell your manager about them. Perhaps a more flexible working schedule can be arranged to enable you to get to work on time. 2. Leave personal troubles at home. Come to work ready to concentrate on your job. If your mind is elsewhere, you can’t hope to be effective, and you’re likely to make costly errors. 3. Meet deadlines. Deadlines are established for a purpose. Complete a task within a specific time frame and you contributed toward an orderly work flow. Miss your due date and you turn into a bottleneck. If you don’t think you can complete an assignment on time, tell the person who gave you the work. Ask if the deadline can be extended, or if you can get some help to complete the task. But don’t make a habit of it. There’s an old saying that goes, “If you want something done, give it to a busy person.” Try to be the person that gets those things done – within reason – you will be invaluable to your manager and to your whole company. 4. Listen carefully and follow instructions. Train yourself to listen attentively. Make eye contact with the speaker. Ignore distractions. Concentrate on the new information. Ask questions, remember the answers. Once you master the art of listening, you’ll improve your accuracy, save valuable time, and move ahead quickly. 5. Be cooperative. If your manager asks you to do something that’s not your responsibility, never say “That’s not my job.” You might say something like “Sarah handles that area now. Would you like me to task her to do this for you?” If someone other than your manager or supervisor asks you to help out on a task, be cooperative. If you’re working on another project, check with your manager first before abandoning the work to help out elsewhere. If you are extremely busy and you see someone who is, offer your assistance. Who knows, you may need help sometime. You have nothing to lose, and you gain a good name when you offer your help. 6. Look good and sound good. Dress for the job you want. Look and sound like a professional and you’ll send a positive message to your manager. If you dress casually, switch to tailored clothing. If you speak too softly, learn a more powerful delivery. When the position you want opens up, you’ll look and sound the part. 7. Keep an open mind. Remember that learning new skills offers opportunities for becoming a valuable employee. Keep your mind open to new ideas and techniques, and you’ll keep growing in value and in stature.

Busy Days Work

I am very busy these days. I work about 8-10 hours everyday, Monday to Friday. In between, I had 15 minutes break in the morning, 30 minutes for lunch and 15 minutes in the afternoon. I feel really tired sometimes but, its fun and I really love my job. Sometimes I miss my husband a lot while I'm at work because when I started working I didn't get to spend more time with him anymore. However, we do make up on weekends. More important we both love each other very much. We're both working every day, when I get home from work he comes home too. I figure if I don't work and just stay home all day while he's at work I go nuts! Well, speaking about work, this week was the crazy days in work. I'm not feeling good all week plus were so busy! I know it was not the busiest days yet but it's been crazy with resolving some problems about work stuff. On the other hand, I'm happy it's almost weekend. Time for rest and spend time with my Babe Dako and of course the unending household chores (~sigh~)

Beginning Of Democracy

Following a revolt by the English nobility against his rule, King John puts his royal seal on the Magna Carta, or "Great Charter." The document, essentially a peace treaty between John and his barons, guaranteed that the king would respect feudal rights and privileges, uphold the freedom of the church, and maintain the nation's laws. Although more a reactionary than a progressive document in its day, the Magna Carta was seen as a cornerstone in the development of democratic England by later generations. John was enthroned as king of England following the death of his brother, King Richard the Lion-Hearted, in 1199. King John's reign was characterized by failure. He lost the duchy of Normandy to the French king and taxed the English nobility heavily to pay for his foreign misadventures. He quarreled with Pope Innocent III and sold church offices to build up the depleted royal coffers. Following the defeat of a campaign to regain Normandy in 1214, Stephen Langton, the archbishop of Canterbury, called on the disgruntled barons to demand a charter of liberties from the king. In 1215, the barons rose up in rebellion against the king's abuse of feudal law and custom. John, faced with a superior force, had no choice but to give in to their demands. Earlier kings of England had granted concessions to their feudal barons, but these charters were vaguely worded and issued voluntarily. The document drawn up for John in June 1215, however, forced the king to make specific guarantees of the rights and privileges of his barons and the freedom of the church. On June 15, 1215, John met the barons at Runnymede on the Thames and set his seal to the Articles of the Barons, which after minor revision was formally issued as the Magna Carta. The charter consisted of a preamble and 63 clauses and dealt mainly with feudal concerns that had little impact outside 13th century England. However, the document was remarkable in that it implied there were laws the king was bound to observe, thus precluding any future claim to absolutism by the English monarch. Of greatest interest to later generations was clause 39, which stated that "no free man shall be arrested or imprisoned or disseised [dispossessed] or outlawed or exiled or in any way victimised...except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land." This clause has been celebrated as an early guarantee of trial by jury and of habeas corpus and inspired England's Petition of Right (1628) and the Habeas Corpus Act (1679). In immediate terms, the Magna Carta was a failure--civil war broke out the same year, and John ignored his obligations under the charter. Upon his death in 1216, however, the Magna Carta was reissued with some changes by his son, King Henry III, and then reissued again in 1217. That year, the rebellious barons were defeated by the king's forces. In 1225, Henry III voluntarily reissued the Magna Carta a third time, and it formally entered English statute law. The Magna Carta has been subject to a great deal of historical exaggeration; it did not establish Parliament, as some have claimed, nor more than vaguely allude to the liberal democratic ideals of later centuries. However, as a symbol of the sovereignty of the rule of law, it was of fundamental importance to the constitutional development of England. Four original copies of the Magna Carta of 1215 exist today: one in Lincoln Cathedral, one in Salisbury Cathedral, and two in the British Museum. Source..

On The Wrong Side Of History


The president and Vice President Joe Biden met last Friday with former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev, according to a Gorbachev who did not elaborate on what was discussed.

Presumably, President Obama wanted Gorbachev's input on how to deal with his current successor, Russian ruler Vladimir Putin, who has become increasingly confrontational toward the West.

Ex-President Jimmy Carter grins as he leaves the White House after talks with President Obama’s top security adviser.

Ex-President Jimmy Carter grins as he leaves the White House after talks with President Obama’s top security adviser.

Earlier in the week the worst president of the 20th century, one James Earl Carter, spent an hour and a half in the West Wing of the White House, reportedly for a private briefing from Obama national security adviser Jim Jones.

(Uh oh — is Carter planning another meeting with the leader of an Islamist terrorist group, like the one he had last year in Syria with Hamas leader Khaled Mashal?)

The president is said to have "briefly greeted" Carter during his visit. But if it had been more than that, no one could blame the White House for covering it up. Carter's legacy includes the fall of the shah and the consequent Islamist revolution in Iran still in power and seeking nuclear arms.

Add to that the fact that the Soviets invaded Afghanistan on Carter's watch, after he repeatedly made it clear in public statements that he did not believe the United States had much ability to influence events in the world anymore.

After just a couple of months in office and a serious economic downturn to deal with, it's doubtful our new president wants Americans to think he was spending any time meeting with a predecessor who gave the country 21.5% interest rates, stagflation and long lines at the gas pump.

Considering the faith that both Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama seem to place in government over the private sector, and conciliation over American assertiveness in foreign policy, would it be unseemly to wonder if the two did share more than a "brief greeting" last week?

Both Carter and Gorbachev are remembered indelibly as being on the wrong side of history. The answer to Soviet aggression was not to kiss Leonid Brezhnev on both cheeks at Vienna, then be shell-shocked to discover he had lied as Red Army tanks rolled into Afghanistan.

Instead, the answer was to announce to the world exactly what the Communists were — an Evil Empire — and rebuild our defenses.

The way to deal with the Berlin Wall was not to learn to live with it permanently, but to go there and demand that Mr. Gorbachev tear it down. Can any American imagine Jimmy Carter going there and saying such a thing? The crowds would have barely stifled their laughter.

And the solution to mutual assured destruction (MAD) by nuclear missiles was not to talk to the Kremlin's professional liars at the negotiating table. It was action, in the form of building and deploying missile defense.

As Gorbachev insisted that a human face could be put on the murderous tyranny of the USSR, and preserve it and the Communist Party that ran it, Carter's successor, Ronald Reagan, exposed it to the light and killed it.

It could indeed even be said that both Gorbachev and Carter were fooled into accepting the invincibility of Soviet communism. Reagan never was, just as Gorbachev's successor Boris Yeltsin never was.

All these years later, missile defense remains important in confronting Russian imperialism. Like during the 1930s, and at the end of World War II, the great nation of Poland is hoping that the free world will not abandon it to a monstrous tyranny next door.

Polish leaders today fear Obama will renege on U.S. plans for a missile shield deployed on Polish territory to defend against former KGB operative Putin's aggression.

It isn't too difficult to surmise what Carter and Gorbachev's dovish advice to the president on the matter would be — as with matters regarding our other adversaries, from al-Qaida to Iran to North Korea and China.

Barack Obama would do better hosting a visit from the ghost of the Gipper.

Learning To Play Golf?

My husband Babe Dako wants to learn how to play golf. But really he does not play because he is not very good at it. He needs to have a lot of practice though. I did find a website that has lots of golf training aids. I am thinking I might get him one of these so that he can really learn how to play. Golf would be a good exercise for him anyway. Maybe if the training aids are good enough even I can learn how to play too. I wonder if they have a small set of clubs that I can use.

Never Get Lost Again

Since I got my drivers license, I am always getting lost. One time I took a wrong turn and ended up in West Virginia. I am learning how to get to places where I want to go but, if I need to get to a new place which I'm not so familiar with, I need my Babe Dako's help to show me how to get there. I really hate to try and read maps so I think the next best thing is to look into the various gps systems. That way I will never get lost again.

What a Diagnosis Means for Your Child?

A diagnosis is an important piece of the puzzle when we try to help kids with disabilities learn how to function. Many parents are relieved when they get a diagnosis for their acting-out, “problem child” because they see it as a guideline for the future. They think, “Now we’ll know what to do; this is it—we’ll finally get our child the help he needs.” But parents are often left with the fact that simply having a diagnosis doesn't necessarily mean they will be able to get help improving their child’s behavior, or get them the skills they need to learn in order to function successfully.

Are Obesogens Making You Fat?

Are Obesogens Making You Fat? By Kelley Herring It's estimated that 300 million people in the world are obese. While we know that eating too much food (and the wrong kind, at that) and not getting enough exercise are the primary causes of the obesity epidemic, researchers have discovered another factor: obesogens. Obesogens are endocrine disruptors that affect the way the body uses fat. They also affect the distribution of fat and the development of sexual characteristics. Here are the top three obesogens: * Bisphenol-a (BPA) - found in plastics with recycling codes 3 and 7 and in liners of cans * Organotins - biocides found in conventionally grown produce * Phthalates - found in personal care products like nail polish, shampoo, lotions, perfumes, etc., as well as plastics You may get only a small amount of these obesogens, but their effects are cumulative. To protect yourself, follow these rules: 1. Eat only organic foods that are not treated with pesticides. 2. Buy canned foods in BPA-free cans.

INTERESTING!! May 11: General Interest 1934 : Dust storm sweeps from Great Plains across Eastern states On this day in 1934, a massive storm sends millions of tons of topsoil flying from across the parched Great Plains region of the United States as far east as New York, Boston and Atlanta. At the time the Great Plains were settled in the mid-1800s, the land was covered by prairie grass, which held moisture in the earth and kept most of the soil from blowing away even during dry spells. By the early 20th century, however, farmers had plowed under much of the grass to create fields. The U.S. entry into World War I in 1917 caused a great need for wheat, and farms began to push their fields to the limit, plowing under more and more grassland with the newly invented tractor. The plowing continued after the war, when the introduction of even more powerful gasoline tractors sped up the process. During the 1920s, wheat production increased by 300 percent, causing a glut in the market by 1931. That year, a severe drought spread across the region. As crops died, wind began to carry dust from the over-plowed and over-grazed lands. The number of dust storms reported jumped from 14 in 1932 to 28 in 1933. The following year, the storms decreased in frequency but increased in intensity, culminating in the most severe storm yet in May 1934. Over a period of two days, high-level winds caught and carried some 350 million tons of silt all the way from the northern Great Plains to the eastern seaboard. According to The New York Times, dust "lodged itself in the eyes and throats of weeping and coughing New Yorkers," and even ships some 300 miles offshore saw dust collect on their decks. The dust storms forced thousands of families from Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas and New Mexico to uproot and migrate to California, where they were derisively known as "Okies"--no matter which state they were from. These transplants found life out West not much easier than what they had left, as work was scarce and pay meager during the worst years of the Great Depression. Another massive storm on April 15, 1935--known as "Black Sunday"--brought even more attention to the desperate situation in the Great Plains region, which reporter Robert Geiger called the "Dust Bowl." That year, as part of its New Deal program, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration began to enforce federal regulation of farming methods, including crop rotation, grass-seeding and new plowing methods. This worked to a point, reducing dust storms by up to 65 percent, but only the end of the drought in the fall of 1939 would truly bring relief. source..

Minimizing Your Risk to Swine Flu. These Link and This can provide you with more information on the new flu strain, including symptoms and precautions. In general, take a common-sense approach to flu avoidance: Follow simple hygiene rules: * Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. * Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze.

Get Rid Of Those Fats

My husband is really trying to lose all the fat that he put on this winter. We are thinking about get a new treadmill. But treadmills can be expensive if you get one of decent quality. I know that if we can put one in our basement I will use it everyday after work. I am inspired watching The Biggest Loser on TV and they spend a lot of time on treadmill and they really lose a lot of weight. Also, next winter when it is cold outside we will be able to keep exercising and keep those unwanted pounds off.

He's Waiting

I sought the Lord, and He heard me. — Psalm 34:4 Jane Welsh, secretary to Scottish essayist Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881), married him and devoted her life to him and his work. He loved her deeply but was so busy with his writing and speaking that he often neglected her. Some time into their marriage, she became ill and suddenly died. In a new book by John Ortberg, I read that after the funeral Thomas went alone to Jane’s room and looked at her diary. He found these words that she had written about him: “Yesterday he spent an hour with me and it was like heaven. I love him so.” On another day, she wrote. “I have listened all day to hear his steps in the hall, but now it is late. I guess he will not come today.” He wept brokenly, realizing his neglect of her and her desire just to talk with him. As I read that, I couldn’t help but think, God loves me dearly and waits for me to fellowship with Him. How many days do I forget him? The Lord welcomes our worship, our prayer, our praise,. He has told us in His Word to pray all the time (1 Thess. 5:17). As He did with the church in Laodicea in Revelation 3, Christ knocks on the door of our heart and patiently waits (v. 20). He listens attentively for our call, our cry, our prayer. How often does He wait in vain? — Dave Egner We can know that God is watching, Always present, everywhere, And with hope and joy and patience He is waiting for our prayer. — Roworth

Can't Believe What I Saw! WOW

As her man lies unconscious on the canvas just yards away, the worry and distress of Ricky Hatton's fiancée Jennifer Dooley is all too plain to see. Seconds earlier, the former college lecturer let out an ear-piercing scream as the Mancunian boxer was floored for the third and final time by Filipino Manny Pacquiao. Wearing a close-fitting red dress, Miss Dooley gripped the back of the seat in front of her for support before turning to Hatton's brother's girlfriend, Jenna Coyne, with her hand over her mouth in horror as Hatton, nicknamed The Hitman, remained flat on his back on the canvas for three worrying minutes.

Do You Need One?

My computer is starting to act funny. It just likes to shut down sometimes. It is a few years old so it is time to think about getting a new one. I am thinking I might try a laptop next time so I have been looking for some good laptop deals. I did find a great website that has some really great deals. I think a laptop might be nice because I can take it all around the house and maybe even lay down in bed and surf. It would be great to go outside and update my blog. We will have to see!

Parts 1 to 6: Shane Murphy recounts pirate attack

SEEKONK, Mass. -- Chief Officer Shane Murphy heard the threat before dawn.

"Stop ship," said a voice on the radio. "This is Somali pirate."

Hours later, four armed Somali pirates fired on the cargo ship Maersk Alabama, where 20 Americans tried to repel the attack. At one point Murphy, carrying homemade weapons, hid in a secret passage on the ship. Others barricaded themselves in a 100-degree safe room.

Meanwhile, Capt. Richard Phillips had been taken prisoner. What could Murphy do?

Sitting at his dining room table, the 34-year-old mariner Friday recounted the harrowing April 8 pirate attack on the Maersk Alabama, which ended Easter Sunday when Navy Seals killed three pirates and arrested a fourth.

Part II. 'Shots fired! Shots fired!'

No one was surprised to see the pirate ship stalking the Maersk Alabama that morning.

Both Murphy and Captain Phillips, a veteran seaman from Underhill, Vt., knew the waters off the rugged Horn of Africa were dangerous. The day before, in the middle of an afternoon drill, three pirate ships had chased and failed to catch the Alabama.

"I see pirates attack ships all the time," said Murphy, who spends half the year at sea.

But Murphy, a graduate of the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, had never seen a pirate board his own ship.

Now, just after dawn, a pirate ship was closing in.

Someone on the Alabama sounded an alarm, and Murphy went below to secure the ship's more than 100 locks and doors. He met with other crew members.

On the radio they heard Phillips, above deck, yell, "Shots fired! Shots fired!"

The men grabbed improvised weapons: hatches, saws, and homemade shivs made by attaching flat metal to wooden handles.

"They were coming aboard," Murphy said.

The men below hid in a safe room. Murphy went back to his office -- a possible entry point on the main deck -- and shoved an overturned desk and chairs against the door.

One of the pirates fired an AK-47 outside the door. Murphy, who now wears one of spent shells on a cord around his neck, thought, " 'It's going to be a fight.'

"I wasn't willing to give up the ship to these guys yet."

Part III. 'I'm thinking the back of my head will explode from a bullet'

When the pirates left the area, Murphy went on deck. Above him, he could hear the pirates yelling at Captain Phillips. They wanted to find the rest of the crew.

On the radio, Phillips sounded calm, "but you could tell he had a gun pointed at his face," Murphy recalled.

A jogger, Murphy sprinted 30 feet along the side of the ship. He knew the pirates, above him, might spot him.

"The whole time I'm thinking the back of my head will explode from a bullet."

Soon after, the chief engineer shut down the ship: lights, engine, everything. The Alabama also broke away from the pirate ship.

Now, the four Somalis were "stuck on the ship with no lights, no power and no way to get off."

Back in the safe room, more than a dozen crew members were crowded into a pitch-black space with no air, food or water.

Murphy and the chief engineer used secret passageways and tunnels to meet. They hashed out their options.

The two of them could try to escape. Or they could try to get the men in the safe room to safety. Or they could try to rescue the captain.

Part IV. 'They said they would shoot someone'

Elsewhere on the ship, crewmember ATM Zahid Reza -- at the wheel when the pirates boarded -- offered to help one of the pirates search for the missing crew, but only if the pirate left his weapon behind.

The two men went below. Suddenly Reza and the engineer jumped the pirate, knocked him down and took him to the safe room. Murphy gave the men duct tape to cover the pirate's mouth.

On the radio, Murphy could hear the other pirates screaming.

"They said they would shoot someone if their friend did not come back," Murphy said. "For me, that was the toughest moment."

What should he do? Should he give himself up?

Instead, he went to the kitchen to find food and water for the crew.

"It was kind of eerie," he said. That morning's meal -- cereal, juice, fruit -- was laid out on a table, untouched. Murphy grabbed some food and a kitchen knife.

"On a ship, there all kinds of tools you can use to inflict pain on someone," he said.

"But," he added, "our minds are the best weapons."

Murphy delivered the food to the safe room and found the ship's emergency radio beacon. He triggered the tracking transmitter, used by others to find ships in distress. He wrapped a blanket around the beacon's strobe light.

He then made his way to the captain's quarters. On a yellow legal pad he left a note for Phillips:

Capt.

We have 1 pirate in steering gear!

Part V. 'I told them I was in charge now'

Armed with a radio, Murphy found a high point on the ship and started making emergency calls.

But there was a problem. The pirates could hear the calls on the same frequency.

Murphy tried another tack.

"I told them I was in charge now, and I had their friend."

If they wanted their friend back, they would have to negotiate with him, he said.

Murphy told the pirates they could take the ship's lifeboat and the money in a safe, and go. Then he changed his voice and pretended to be the head of a rescue team.

The pirates agreed to an exchange of prisoners, and the crew started the ship. "We came out of our hiding places. Some of the guys were pale and dehydrated."

Murphy and other crew members thought the worst was over. But during the switch, Murphy said, Captain Phillips stayed behind to ensure the safety of his crew.

"He didn't want anyone else hurt," Murphy said. "I thought he was going to jump." But he didn't.

Now in charge, Murphy took the Alabama to Mombasa. Phillips stayed with the pirates in a lifeboat 300 miles off the coast of Somalia.

Part VI: Coda

Murphy followed the rest of the story from afar, and called his wife, Serena, from Kenya.

After a five-day standoff, Navy snipers aboard the USS Bainbridge killed three of the pirates on Easter Sunday. A fourth -- Abduhl Wali-i-Musi, the pirate taken prisoner by the crew of the Alabama -- was arrested and is now in New York City. He will be arraigned in a Manhattan federal courtroom on Tuesday morning.

Last week, Murphy joined Serena and their two young boys in the U.S. On Tuesday, he is scheduled to speak to Congress about what the U.S. can do to protect U.S. cargo ships.

But on Friday he tried to relax. He spent the morning taking calls from the media and feeding his youngest son in a high chair. He wore a white sleeveless shirt and a shell casing -- a souvenir from the pirate attack -- around his neck. On his right bicep flashed the tattoo of a mermaid. On his left arm swam a shark.
