Nature


If you want to make hiking a family activity, here are some hints to make it fun for the younger ones. 1. Start hiking with children on small treks do not get them so tired that they cannot enjoy themselves. 2. Forget your adult rules about how fast you want to go. Instead, think about how your children would about spending their time. Walk for fifteen to twenty minutes, then look around for fifteen to twenty minutes. Throw rocks in a creek, float sticks in the stream, flip a bug on its back and see how it turns itself over. Look at and smell weeds, flowers, moss, rotten logs, and interesting rocks. Watch a hawk in the sky, a squirrel in a tree, a birds, a bug on a log, or other people on the trail. Prepare a surprise piece of candy, bring a small toy to play with, have a story ready, make a stick whistle, or imitate a bird call. Sing songs on the trail. Make up a song, rhyme, poem, or story with your children. You can count the numbers of animals you see or see who can be first to spot a certain colored flower. Allow some freedom and independence in hiking, but set limits for how far children can move away from you.

On Her Own


I have a friend she working and at the same time studying and she is looking for an apartment. It took her a long time to find apartment that she really like. Searching for the perfect apartment is just like looking for Mr.Right. It's hard and, at the very least, takes sometime. The good ones in the market are usually taken or way beyond our reach. Some look good on paper, but are crappy in reality. There's a lot of trial and error. The search could take years. That does not stop us though from single-mindedly pursuing the dream of a perfect fit. But till that happens, when we learn to make do on our own. She has some of these reasons why she want her own apartment. She can walk around naked or eat dinner in her underpants and nobody would mind. She only got to close the windows. She get to pick her own noise. In other words, total TV channel and music control. She can be as moody as she want and she don't have to explain why. She get to test what she can and can't do. Her survival skills kick in and are constantly challenged- and she said, she become a better person for it.

Little Things


What are some of the "little things" that can keep love and friendship alive in marriage? What experiences or examples can you share that show the importance of keeping love growing in these ways? There is one woman, married for over 35 years, said: " I love it when my husband still brings me a little surprises after he has been gone for an evening or a weekend. It doesn't have to be a big thing, just a cookie or flower he saved from the meeting. I especially love it when he calls me from work in the middle of the day just to ask how my day is going or to share some exciting bit of news. These little things help us feel loved and cherished. You need to " Keep your courtship alive". Make time to do things together husband and wife - just two of you. As important as it is to be with the children as a family, you need regular weekly time alone together. Scheduling it will let your children know that you feel that your marriage is so important that you need to nurture it.

A Graduation Day


This month of March marks a milestone for some students. Enter the graduates of 2011. This is one of the memorable day for the students. On this proud day, stand tall, flash a winning smile to accept the diploma ( additional honors, if any) that the student have worked hard for. I remembered the time I graduated from my college I really worked and study hard because I am a working student. I worked in the morning and I study in the evening. On that day of my graduation I am so proud of myself even if I didn't received any medals and I said to myself "well done" I am really happy on my graduation day.

Fuel Prices


I went to a gasoline station today to fill up the truck and I was very shock of the fuel prices today it was very high. I don't know how people can still afford to buy fuel. I heard from the Energy Department said gasoline inventories fell 5.3 million barrels last week and gasoline stocks are down 8.9 percent during the last five weeks. So we need to limit our usage of fuel. It's supply and demand. From now on I need to walk or ride the horses it's save money and walking is good you.

FREEZING VEGETABLES

Even after vegetables are picked, the enzymes in them make them lose flavor and color and sometimes make them tough- even at freezer temperatures. Therefore the enzymes must be stopped in their tracks by being heated for a few minutes ( how many minutes depends on the size and texture of the vegetables) before the vegetables are cooled quickly and packed. This preheating is necessary for virtually all vegetables; green (sweet) peppers are the notable exception.

Practically all vegetables are safely blanched in boiling water. Use a large kettle which has a wire basket that fits down in it. Put prepared vegetables in the basket- not more than a pound or two at a time- and lower it into boiling water. Start counting the time at once. Shake the basket to let heat reach all parts of it's load. When the specified time is up, lift out the basket and immediately dunk the vegetables in ice-cold water to cool them fast.

If you live more than 5,000 feet above sea level, preheat vegetables 1 minute longer than the time called for.

BEANS:

Prepare :
Wash, cut or snap the ends off, then cut in 1" or 2" pieces, or in lengthwise strips (frenching), or leave whole if they're very young and tender.

Blanch :
In boiling water - for 3 minutes. Cool in ice water immediately, drain well.

Pack :
Leave 1/2 inch headroom
Seal : freeze.


BROCCOLI:

Prepare :
Peel coarse stalks, trimming off leaves and blemishes: split if necessary. Separate or cut into reasonable size pieces.

Blanch :
In boiling water-3 minutes for stalks. ( reduce blanching time for cut-up or chopped.) Cool Immediately in ice water; drain.

Pack :
Leave no headroom for spears or large chunks; arrange long stalks so blossom ends are divided between either end of the container. Leave 1/2 inch headroom for cut-up or chopped ( they have less air space.)

Seal; freeze.

Primary Solution To The Global Food Crisis


Many scientists are saying, is to gradually convert from a meat diet to a vegetarian diet. " If we were vegetarians, we could banish hunger from this earth. Children would be born and grow up well-nourished, and they would live happier, heal their lives. Animals would be free to live. Meat is the mist uneconomical and inefficient food we can eat, the cost of one pound of meat protein is twenty times higher than equally nutritional plant protein. Only 10% of the protein and calories we feed to our livestock is recovered in the meat we eat, that is, 90% goes down the drain.Acres of land are used to raise livestock for food. These acres of land could be utilized far more productively if planted with grains, beans, and other legumes for humans to eat directly. For example, one acre used to raise to steer will provide only about one pound of protein, but this same land planted with soybeans will produce 17 pounds of protein. In other words, to eat meat, we need to used 17 times as much land as the amount needed to plant soybeans are more nutritious, contain less fat, and are free from the poisons of meat. United Nations has strongly recommended that people should cut down on their meat consumption.

The Meaning of Marriage


To be genuine, a marriage must begin on a sound spiritual basis. It must be of the heart, and the heat is the chalice of love. Honesty, sincerity, kindness, and the heart is the chalice of love. Each partner should be perfectly honest and sincere with the other. It is not a true marriage when a man marries a woman to lift his ego or because he wants to share her money or social position. This indicates a lack of sincerity, honesty, and true love. Such a marriage is a farce, a sham, and a masquerade. If a woman says, " I am tired of working. I want to get married because I want security," her major premise is false. She is not using the laws of mind correctly. Her security depends upon her knowledge of the interaction of the conscious and subconscious mind and its application.
A woman is not dependent on her husband for health, peace, joy, inspiration, guidance, love, wealth, security, happiness, or anything in the world. Her security and peace of mind come from her knowledge of the powers within her from the constant use of the laws of her own mind in a constructive fashion.

You Are The Reason

For every sun that rises in the morning, you are the reason for it.
For every little thing I do, you are the reason for it.
For the happiness I've felt, you are the still the main reason for it.
You might have been the reason why I've cried, still you are the reason why I smile.
You might also been the reason why my heart was crashed, but still you're the only person that could make my heart beats so fast.
The way you love me, gives me reason to love you more each day.
The way you smile, the way you laugh, the way you talk, and every little thing that you do gives me reason why I want to live just to be with you.

The Need To Be Touched


The bond of mother to child is a natural one, that nevertheless needs to be reinforced and strengthened with daily cuddling and touching of baby.

Even before you leave the hospital, the pediatric team will show you how to give your baby a massage. Touching your baby assures him/her that you care., especially if you do it gently while talking to him/her in a soft, soothing voice.

Cuddling your baby close to your body can also help quiet him/her down after a feeding. The warmth of your closeness can also bring up air and relieve colic pain.

Don't hesitate to hold baby from time to time. It won't spoil his/her temper and senses will develop more quickly through this daily stimulus.

The Happiest Place For The Kids


HongKong Disneyland is the fifth theme park in Walt Disney's Kingdom, and the second in Asia after Tokyo. It is located on reclaimed land on Lantau Island. Another is planned for construction in Shanghai this year, to be finished by 2014. According to the latest figures, the park receives about five million visitors per year, with 20% of that Filipinos, second only to the mainland Chinese! So we really are important to their tourism!
Not surprisingly, there are many Filipino employees in the park, mostly on the entertainment side of the organization. One can easily see this during the daily afternoon parades where you have Filipino musicians, dancers and even some costumed characters like the green soldiers in Toy Story! They controlled the number of people allowed to enter the park at any given time. The attraction of Hong kong is probably the most visited country by Filipinos. Lots of people and specially children wish to go to Disneyland. And indeed, this is a place not only for children, but for those with child-like hearts. Lots of Rides, shows, foods. You will forget everything actually as you walk along this magical place. Who would have thought that you would see Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, even Ariel and Tinker Bell in person. You will be treated to a delightful,visual experience of fireworks and music. This is the happiest place for the kids.

Fear of Old Age

Many people fear old age. They are uncertain about the future,because they anticipate mental and physical deterioration as the years advance.What they think and feel comes to pass.

You grow old when you lose interest in life,when you cease to dream, to hunger after new truths, and to search for new worlds to conquer. When your mind is open to new ideas and new interests and when you raise the curtain and let in the sunshine and inspiration of new truths of life and universe, you will be young and vital.

Sowing Seeds


Many people live in apartments or small homes with no yard space for a garden plot. Others live in dry regions where the soil is barren. Some feel that they do not have the time or financial means to grow their own food. Yet with faith, diligence, patience and a little creativity, anyone can succeed in gardening. There is a worldwide crisis all over the world, so we need to be creative, by planting vegetables will help us to budget our money wisely and also vegetables it is good for our body it's healthy.

We will be amazed at the amount of food could produce in the small containers. We can used boxes, buckets, bottles, and other containers can be used to turn small spaces into productive gardens. I love the challenge of container gardening.

The Birth

The birth experience itself is influential, very detailed birth memories can be retrieved, and the more traumatic the birth experience, the higher the correlation with physiological and psychological problems, including serious disorders such as schizophrenia and psychosis. Again, the mother's attitude in determining the character of the birth. The vital factors in predicting the ease and speed of labor are the mother's attitudes toward motherhood, her relations to her own mother, and the presence of habitual worries, fears, and anxieties going beyond normal apprehension.Along with these, women trapped in an unsatisfying relationship fall into the high- risk category. Many problems associated with birth trauma can be prevented or reduced by increased understanding and sensitivity on the part of health professionals and by the parent's choice of two delivers the baby and of a humane and comfortable birth method and location.

Enjoy The " Now"


Many of us experience on our journey through life is the inability to allow ourselves to be happy or satisfied in the "now." For example, when we're in grade school, we can hardly wait until we're in junior high school. Then we're in junior high and can't wait until we're in high school. In our early teens, we can hardly wait to be 16 so we can drive a car. Then we're waiting to graduate from high school, to leave home, then get married, etc. We seldom, if ever, are able to be satisfied and content enjoying the here and now. We don't seem to know how to stop along the way and smell the roses.And in some cultures we can't enjoy, or we think we're not supposed to enjoy life until we are perfect. Why is it that so many people think that we can't enjoy life to it's fullest until we have arrived at our destination.

If we can realize and recognize that the growth process is something to be savored and relished along the way- that enjoying the challenges of the now and seeing the positive aspects they bring to our life as we experience them- our existence can be so much more rewarding. Our Be-ing is developing and it is necessary to have these kinds of experiences in order to accomplish our growth.

How Facebook Started

I just came across amusing story on how Facebook started.Apparently, it started when facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was a student in Harvard.One night he had a crazy idea, and he broke into the school computers and basically got pictures, and details of the students there. He then used the data to build a website called Facemash. Basically, what it did was it put the faces of two classmates in the site, then asked people to vote for who had a more attractive face. This was in 2003, which kind of reminds us how the new Facebook is.Obviously some students, mostly women, protested and the school had to shut down the website, and charged Mark with violating copyright and security policies. This was probably how facebook's seeds got sown.

GOALS

When we remember that life is a process, it helps us put our goal-setting in perspective. The purpose of setting goals is to give us a temporary structure in which to operate. Unfortunately, when we begin to believe that the structure is solid and real, we lose touch with the process of getting there. This is why we often feel so depressed and let down when we reach our goals. We have not let ourselves enjoy the experience of the journey, and when we reach the end, we have missed the journey.
Being in the present allows us to experience the journey and to respond to the process of the journey. When we operate this way, we see that all goals are just temporary ideas that change as we draw near to them.

Prevent Accidents Involving Electricity

Electricity that lights our homes and make us comfortable can also be a source of fatal accidents. The following can help reduce related accidents:
. Never operate and handle electric appliances when your feet are wet when standing on a wet floor.
.Keep electric appliances away from areas that are always wet ( bathroom, laundry).Never use it there either.
. Have your writing installation checked at least once every five years by an approved contractor, or straightaway if you are buying an older property.
Never overload an electric socket.
. Install outlet covers when you have children at home.
