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.
