Boom weekend for Orlando

Orlando is having boom week and also weekend. The football game between Notre Dame and Florida state was a sellout with over to 68,000 people in attendance. The Magic basketball game also added 20,000 people in the downtown area on Thursday. You can imagine the nightmare trying to find a parking spot.

It was reported on the local news that the hotel where 95% full with all these people in town for the bowl game along with your regular tourist season. Universal Studios and Disney World temporarily close their gates for a short period as the parks were overcrowded it was reported there were three hour waits to get on some rides.

This coming weekend the scene will be repeated as the Capital One Bowl will be in town and is completely sold out another boom for the downtown area which surely could use it. So if you are planning to be out and about this weekend and next be sure to plan your trips around town as in some areas there will be a lot of traffic.

It may be an inconvenience for some people with all the football fans and tourist flooding into Orlando but I'm sure it is a welcome sight for all the businesspeople and the economy this season. Most of the fans here for the games spend at least between two and $3000 on hotel rooms flights and restaurants this will be a boost for our local economy. It is estimated that the local economy will benefit by the tune of $80 million on the events so I say congratulations to Orlando and a happy new year to all.

Some people think that when they are being evicted, from an apartment that it is no big deal this could not be further from the truth.

There are many consequences a person can face as a result of a legal eviction. Many people do not understand the ramifications of what it means to be the subject of an eviction.

You will be brought into eviction court this can be a very humiliating experience and also will be a matter of public record permanently. You can be forcibly remove from your apartment which is also another humiliating experience and again is part of a permanent record made public.

If a judgment is rendered against you you will be liable for the debt tell it is paid. This could also affect your credit standing. If you fail to pay they could possibly be a seizure of your assets including bank accounts and garnishments of your wages. Credit rating bureaus will be notified and again this could affect your credit card ,car loans, and even a mortgage in the future.

This also may cause an inability to qualify for renting a new place as you will be reported to the national tenant reporting services. This will severely hurt your chances of obtaining a decent place to live as most rentals require credit and tenant screening.

So if you are behind in your rent try to work with your landlord to solve the problem before eviction is the last option.

Last Will and Testament

What is a last will and testament? This is a legal document by which a person can transfer their property to the people of their choice after their death.

Do I need a lawyer to draft my last will and testament? The answer to this is no you only have to be of legal age of sound mind. If you have made a will previous to your last one you must reject it in the document. You must declare that you are making this will free and willingly. After making your will you should sign it in the the presents of at least two witnesses and it should be notarized by Notary Public. This is a simple way to make a will but if you have a lot of possessions such as real estate, trust funds, and stocks and bonds you might want to consult a lawyer or at least a paralegal to assist you.

Retirement Scams

You have reached a point in your life that you have decided to take early retirement. I am sure you will be bombarded with many invitations to retirement seminars. You will be offered many types of plans that may appeal to you. But you must use the guideline if it's too good to be true it probably is. Many of these seminars are designed by con men to relieve you of your money.

Here are a few tips that will help you avoid the pitfalls of a fraudulent or misleading retirement plan. First you must face a fact that many people are not eligible or financially able to retire early.

In many of these plans they will tell you you must act now or the opportunity will be gone if you feel like you are being pressured or rushed into some kind of deal the best thing to do is just walk away.

Many of these plans will promise you a high percentage of returns for example 12 or 13%. Most of this information is greatly exaggerated. If you are investing in the stock market about the highest rate of return you can inspect is five or 6%. You must remember the stock market is a highly volatile place with its ups and downs nobody can really guarantee you a high return.

The scammers will tell you you can withdraw at least 8% of more a year and never deplete your money this is totally inaccurate. Many experts say you should expect to withdraw 2-5 percent per year during the first years of your retirement.

If you are contacted by phone never give out any bank information Social Security number or any pertinent personal information this is a good way to have your identity stolen.

Before entering any transactions with one of the so call retirement specialist you should make sure they are licensed and bonded by the state you live in. Never deal with a person on a personal level it should always be through a company that is also registered in your state.

If you do feel like you are being scammed or suspect some kind of fraud you can file a complaint with the state officials such as the attorney general's office or state security regulators. So keep your eyes open and be aware there are many scammers out there with these unbelievable plans that are generally fraudulent and not true. Always deal with a company that is licensed and bonded in your state. Be sure to check out their credentials and see if they're registered with the Better Business Bureau.

Authorization for child travel

In these modern times a parent has to be very careful when a child is traveling with one of them or another family member.

With many children being involved in custody disputes an a rising number of missing children taken by someone on who is not their parent. It is important if your child is traveling with only one parent or just a family member there should be a form with them called authorization for child to travel. If the child is only traveling with one parents the other parent will need to sign this form the same applies if the child is traveling with a family member both parents will have to sign. Without this form if you are traveling internationally you may be delayed entering another country at the border. Without this form authority may assume there is some kind of suspicion which could cause a delay. Many countries actually require this form. This is a simple form that can be obtained from a lawyer, paralegal or even in some cases a Notary Public. It is also wise to have the form notarized.

Translation Agency in China

I just got a call from a client who now resides in China temporarily. I work with him one time with his Immigration papers and some notary works. He had problems with his documents and my company managed to submit the forms needed. He was so happy that all his legal documents were straightened up. He is working in China for two years now and he loves his job. He told me that the only set back was the language barrier. For few weeks he hired a translator in China who helped him in terms of communication to Chinese clients and business partners. There are International Translation Agencies in China and one of them is Rosetta Translation. This company has head quarter in London but, has a branch office in Shanghai, China.

Rosetta Translation Company is one of the reputable translation agencies in China. They offer services such as legal and financial translations, technical and medical translations as well as Pharmaceutical translations. My client is well adjusted in China and he speaks Chinese now. Thanks to his translator he said.

Smartphones Hacker Target

Smartphones are becoming as much a fixture of the business world as a fax machine. They are replacing many of the traditional devices.

Unfortunately this means they are rapidly becoming the new target for criminals. Security companies have recently reported they have found malware and spyware on about 10% of mobile devices that were scanned in the month of May in 2010. This was double the amount found just five months earlier. With the number of smart phones on an increase the number is surely to increase.

You are probably now asking yourself how can I protect my smart phone? You should get an antivirus scanner and use it regularly on your phone. You should also be careful about downloading questionable apps. The sale of smart phones is on the rise and more than 500 million are inspected to be sold in 2011. So take the appropriate steps to protect yourself and not end up a victim.

Rent To Own

Rent to own or lease option to purchase what ever you want to call it is a valid purchasing technique. This is an option that can benefit the seller and the buyer equally.

For example if you have a home that you want to sell and the present tenant would like to purchase it you may check into the option to lease purchase. This is a lease for a fixed period of time with an option to purchase the property on a future date usually within three years. The advantage to this is the seller gets to collect his rent over the entire period of this time and the buyer will have the option to purchase on the agreed upon date. The tenant has the right but not the obligation to purchase the property. According to what financial arrangements have been made the tenant may have to forfeit some of the funds paid into the escrow account. This is an option that can both benefit the buyer and the seller but you should see a qualified real estate attorney to draw the necessary papers so both parties will be protected.

Jennifer Lopez Car Ad

While watching television the other day I saw an advertisement for a small compact car the new Fiat. It featured Jennifer Lopez.

At the time I said to myself I doubt seriously if Jennifer Lopez would ever be seen driving around in a small compact car in the Bronx in New York. The ad went on to portray her returning to her old neighborhood saying that she was inspired and this was her type of world.

Come to find out according to Yahoo Jennifer Lopez was nowhere to be found in the Bronx when this car commercial was shot. She was actually in Los Angeles. The girl featured in the ad was the body double for her. It was reported also that the car actually broke down while filming the commercial. I think the ad would a be more believable if J Lo would've been driving a Mercedes or Cadillac around the streets of Miami or Los Angeles I doubt very seriously if she's ever been in a Fiat or for that matter ever will be. Maybe soon we will see her in a smart car.

Black Friday

The Christmas season is already upon us boy it came fast. I guess if it was up to the merchants they would like to start on the Fourth of July.

In a few days we will have one of the biggest shopping days of the year commonly known as Black Friday. I have to omit last year I did get up at four clock in the morning and go with a friend of mine to do some Black Friday shopping. I found some pretty good bargains in the electronics department but my biggest purchase was at one of the big box stores where I purchased a washer and dryer. The regular price was $1700 this was one of those washer and dryers that sit on the pedestal you pay extra for the base about $250 each. I bought it complete for $1200 so it was worth my time and loss of sleep.

This Black Friday really I don't need anything but I'm still planning on going out with my wife to see if I can find any great deals. I'm sure I will find something that I can't live without.

Rusty, My Dog

Last year my wife and I were living in Mississippi taking care of my father who at the time was 90 years old. The house we were living in was located on the Gulf Coast in an area known as Gulf Islands National Seashore Park. Some of the land is private property and the rest is owned by the federal government. It is considered a wetlands and there are many wild animals such as red tailed Fox, gators and snakes plus your usual raccoons and possums.

I would normally get up early in the morning have my coffee sitting outside enjoying the fresh air.

One morning while sitting there drinking my coffee a very large rustic looking dog came into the yard. I was thinking wow some kind of wild dog from the swamp as he did look quite ferocious at the time. As the dog approached I said what the heck do you want here! To my relief he began to wag his tail and walked over to me and sat down. This was the beginning of a morning ritual that would last until I moved back to Florida. This dog would come around every morning for breakfast as I had bought some dog food and snacks for him. I gave him the name Rusty because he looked like a Rusty nail. While playing with the dog I learned he was quite intelligent somebody had trained this dog well he would roll over and sit and chase the ball on command. I don't know how this dog ended up in the swamp but he seemed to enjoy his freedom after two or three hours he would disappear and I would not see him until the next morning. I always wondered what happened to him I went back to the neighborhood recently in the morning but did not see him maybe he found a nice home somewhere I hope so.

If There Is The Will, There Is The Way

We went shopping yesterday and later in the evening, my wife and two friends decided to go to a bar to unwind. We were having fun and we made friends with the people on the next table who were blowing circles in their electronic cigarettes.

Well, it was not a perfect circle though and my friend was curious why she cannot smell cigarette from them. She later found out that it was an e-cigarette. She was smoking since high school and she is willing to quit but, her system cannot do it. She tried alternative ways to quit such as eating gums and it did not help. The people told her that using the electronic cigarette helps a lot and it made them forget smoking.

There is a significant change in their smoking habit as what they said. My friend was curious about it and she was planning to buy a starter kit. I was thrilled with her excitement about it. I am hoping that she will do it and can quit her smoking habit with the help of the electronic cigarette.

Deceptive Advertising

When dealing with immigration services there are many companies that will use deceptive advertising. You may go to a website that you think is the State Department they even use the same layout.

These companies will make applying for a visa, or US citizenship or green cards sound like the impossible dream but you must remember they are all trying to sell you something normally their overpriced services. Many of the services and forms these companies try to sell you are in actuality free from the State Department. They will give you an extremely long timeline to complete whatever task it is you need done by the government unless you use their services which can expedite it this is totally false of course. Some of these companies will actually drag out your process so they may charge more. So be sure to check with the State Department website for your processing information as they will not steer you wrong.

Home Inspection A Must

If you are in the market for a new home before you buy be sure that you have a home inspection. Many people sign a waiver declining the inspection this is a big mistake.

If you decline the home inspection you have nothing to fall back on if something is wrong with the home and there can be many things hidden that you will not see with the untrained eye. A good example of this is the roof it may look like it has been replaced recently but there are places that could have leaks and the wood could be rottten underneath. A home inspector will find these defects this could save you a lot of money. There could also be hidden problems with plumbing, hot water heater or the air conditioner unit all of these things could count up to a lot of money that would have to come out of your pocket.

The home inspection is not that expensive they could run from $200-$300 but this is money well spent in the long run you could save thousands. So before you purchase a home make sure you have it inspected by a reputable home inspection company.

Technology Loving Son

Posted by Virgil Burks:

My son is a huge technology lover. At first I thought it was a phase, but now it is starting to become a problem. He wants to be on the computer all the time. I finally went to and got internet, but I am starting to regret it. I was thinking it would be a good source of information. I was hopeful my son would be able to use it for school. I even thought it would be a good way for him to make friends. Instead, he uses the internet to research new technology updates or read technology chat boards. I have started limiting his computer use and making him go outside to play. When he was little he loved the outdoors, I would have never thought ten years later I would be forcing him to go outside. I was so excited about what the internet could bring to our household, but I am starting to wonder if it was a good decision. I am hoping this is another phase and he will eventually love going outside again.

Such things as sharp objects, guns, and firearms, explosive ,and flammable objects and disabling chemicals are obvious items that will not be allowed on any aircraft. We're all looking for a safe and stress-free travel during the holiday season so be sure to check with your airline or travel agent if you think you might have a questionable item.

Dollar General's Veteran's Day Discount

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of DollarGeneral for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

After the mass last Sunday, our church joins the cause of showing to the active military on duty that we appreciate their service to the country.  The church members made a card and it will be sent to where they are. They will randomly receive it back in Afghanistan and Iraq. That is one activity that we do aside from other activities which the church initiated for the Veterans Day.  Compared to the years when I was serving in the army, Americans nowadays give more emphasis to honor the Veterans as well as the active military. It should always be that way because they serve our nation to protect our freedom preserving the peace and security of the country. That is why most of the establishments in the nation such as Dollar General support the good cause to honor our service men and women. Dollar General's Veteran's Day discount gives out the 10% Discount for Veterans, Active Military and their families available in store on Saturday 11/11 and no coupon needed. The 10% Discount is also available online for everyone to celebrate Veterans Day by using the code VETERANSDAY at checkout. If you want to send a care package for our troops with free shipping, just get it at Dollar General. Visit the Facebook page of Dollar General today and view the thank you videos for the troops.

Some of these crooks will even go to the extent to say they guarantee results. Do not be duped by these claims as no one can guarantee this it is totally a State Department decision. Under no circumstances pay for any forms you will need from the State Department they are free to download or receive through the mail directly from the Department of State.

Warranty Plans

When you make a purchase from one of the big chain stores selling electronics and appliances immediately after your purchase comes a question do you want to purchase a warranty?

Before you agreed to this there are some questions you should ask the salesman. Because they will tell you not to worry when you purchase a warranty it covers everything including a replacement but this is not necessarily true.

The first question you should ask is the warranty from your company or outsourced to a separate warranty company. In many cases the warranty you purchase is not from the store but from a separate company entirely. It has been my experience that if something does go wrong you will first have to deal with the warranty company and not the store. For example if you have purchased a flatscreen TV from one of the big box stores and something goes wrong it is a mistake to think that you will be able to just return it and get a new one. In most cases the warranty company will try to repair it. If this is too costly for them they will recommend a replacement but this will only be done after a repair person has visited your house to see what the problem was. Then and only then will the warranty company replace the product upon the say so of the repair man. In most cases it is easier and less expensive for them to replace it than repair it. In the meantime while all this is going on you will not have the use of your product which is very frustrating. So when purchasing a warranty the sure to really find out who is backing up the product the company or a separate warranty company.

Best Annuity Rates

This is the truth that I realized lately, the bank is not the place to get the Best Annuity Rates. My savings did not gain much in a year so; I look for other means to get the return of my investment. If you own a micro business or even macro business, banks will not give the best interest for your money. We need to earn a much higher return of our money therefore; we need to investigate where to put our savings that earns higher interest.

The best option that I could think of was to buy a condo unit and rent it. For few months now, I am earning so much than what my bank can give. It would take me some time to get back the capital that I spent but, the property is always there. I guess, this is my best option to get the most out of my money. If you want other option aside from real estate business, you may also want to check out this Website: Safe Money Alternatives. Get the fixed index annuity for your retirement plan. If you are a risk taker, you might be interested to check it out today.

The Immigration Interview

If you have married an American citizen you could be subject to an interview by the immigration service.

Many people get nervous when they are called for their interview but if you are prepared and have followed all the rules and regulation you really don't have to worry about anything. The immigration interviewers are very experienced and know what they are doing.

Here are a few pointers that may help you in your interview. Be sure to bring all your forms and original documents that are required. You may be asked questions about your forms and documents and should be able to answer them without any confusion.

If you have married an American citizen you will be asked personal questions related to your marriage. You could be interviewed jointly or separately this decision is strictly up to the interviewing officer.

Listening to the questions and answer only the questions that are asked you by the immigration office do not volunteer any other information. If your English is not perfect they bring an interpreter to help you with the question. You also may bring your immigration attorney if you think this is necessary.

Dress appropriately this is a very important interview and you want to make a good impression. Make sure that you show up on time for the interview as it is very difficult to reschedule one.

If you do not understand a question asked the officer to rephrase it. If you do not know the answer to a question is better just admit that you don't. So what call for your interview at the remain calm answer all the questions you can't be truthful and you should have no problem.

Safety Management

If your business is in need of medical software, you should check out Medgate.

US Visas

If you married a person living in another country you will have to obtain in most cases a visa to enter the United States.

There is a visa that covers this situation it is commonly known as a visa for your spouse. You must apply for this visa while your spouse is living in their country. Once you have supplied the necessary information your spouse will submit this visa to American Consulate or Embassy in his or her native country they will be the approving authority this could generally take up to 3 to 6 months it really depends on the country your spouses is coming from. Once your spouse has arrive you may have to get remarried here it depends if the United States recognizes the marriage in the country your spouses from. This is the proper way to bring your loved one to the states and not having to worry about any repercussions.

Some people try to get around applying for this type of visa by securing a tourist visa for there intended and once they are in the states marrying them. In most cases this seems like the easy way but this could have consequences it just depends on how immigration looks at the situation.

A third option would be the fiancée visa you would fill out the necessary paperwork sent it to your fiancée who in turn would submitted to the American Embassy who would be the approving authority. The embassy would interview your fiancée and make their determination for entry into the United States. So you do have several options it's just up to you which one will best fit your situation.

As a coffee lover I'm always looking for the latest technology in the coffee market such as the latest coffee machine to come on the market.

Recently I was given a gift of a 6 cup coffee machine the difference between this machine and your standard coffee maker was it does not have a glass coffee carafe as a matter fact it doesn't have one at all. This is a unique coffee machine once the coffee is made you can put your cup under the coffee spout and filled it directly like I said there is no glass pitcher to fool with.

This machine comes in a 6 cup or 12 cup size the choice is up to you. It is very easy to clean as when you are done you just take the top of the machine off and rinse it under the kitchen faucet. This machine also uses the small coffee filters which is convenient and easy to find in your local supermarket. So if you are looking for the latest in coffee percolator's check out your local supermarket or department store they are reasonably priced starting at about $26.

IT Certificates

My wife is working at home that is why; we were looking for a house with extra room for the office. We bought this house just this week and I am so thrilled about it because there is an extra room already set up as an office. It was really spacious and I guess she will have to pursue one of the IT Certification Courses before the year ends. She can have that office whenever she wants to have a time for herself too. She has no formal training in IT but, her job is computer related and at times, she has trouble in understanding some technical issues. She managed to pull her job well but, to have the training in IT subjects would really help her a lot.

The generation that we have is all about enhancing technology. All walks of life are influence with the fast-pace innovation of technology, right? All of us are cellphone users and most of us have the computers at home with Wi-Fi access. We are hands-on learners when it comes to technology but, there are simple problems that we cannot comprehend especially when it's about technical terms. The decision of my wife to get an IT course is really a good move because she can use it in her job online.

Married/ Immigration

If you are thinking to marry an American citizen solely for the purpose of obtaining a residence permit commonly known as a green card I think you should have second thoughts and canceled this idea out of your mind.

I know this sounds like an easy way to obtain a green card but if you are discovered doing this you could be permanently ban from entering the United States or for at least 10 years.

Immigration officials are experts at determining if a marriage is for real or for the purpose of obtaining a green card. First you would have an interview with an experienced immigration official who knows what questions to ask you to determine your eligibility for residency.

There are certain requirements that you must meet being married to an American citizen such as both parties having the same address, joint bank account, join credit card and state ID or driver's license all with the same address. You may be interview jointly or separately it is at the discretion of the immigration office. If you are found trying to deceive the immigration system you will be put up for deportation could even happen immediately. So if you are thinking this is an easy way to obtain permanent residence I suggest you think again. You will be dealing with immigration experts that deal with this situation every day. So when trying to become a permanent resident I suggest you follow all the rules and regulations even though they are time-consuming and save your self a lot of headaches and stress.

This is very useful information on the property that you are about to buy. There will be a short description of the property such as how many bathrooms, bedrooms, and what appliances that will remain with the house when you purchase it.

This information sheet is very useful in letting you know what type of utilities they'll be with the property. For example is it on city water and sewer or does it have a septic tank. It will also inform you on what type of financing is required or if it is a cash deal only. A very important thing that it will tell you is the yearly tax on the property. So it is very important to use a reliable real estate agent who will inform you of this information.

Motorcycle Parts

When we were in Hard Rock in Biloxi Mississippi, people were stopping by on the motorcycle display. It was a very elegant motorcycle and it looks like a Chopper Pro kind which I bet it was. Anyway, it was a huge motorcycle with the face of the Beatles on the gas tank as part of the design. That motorcycle was like a star because people are taking pictures of it and with it as the background.

It was located at the lobby and Hard Rock use a stanchion to control the people from getting inside the display area. It was okay to look at it and take pictures but, no one was allowed to go near it. It must be an expensive motorcycle and probably a collectible item. Well, if I have a Chopper Pro, I will buy some motorcycle parts and make it a look-alike.

It would be fun to upgrade a motorcycle into something like that. It was really a nice motorcycle and so shiny. If it runs on the road, it would definitely looks like the king of the road and everyone will be looking at it. The last time I went to Hard Rock, the motorcycle was moved inside the casino area near the player's card desk. It looks beautiful in that area though because of the reflections of the light.

Medical Scrubs

I saw my friend in a store yesterday and she was looking for discount medical scrubs. She was a nurse in one of the high end hospitals here in Orlando and she wanted to buy a bargain scrub to give to her niece who is her scholar. Of course, I suggested to her to visit this Website: because the price of their products are unbeatable. My sister-in-law recommended this Website a year ago. This is her favorite online store and most of the hospital scrubs of her husband, was bought from this store. The material is soft and in good quality, and the design is neat plus, the price is so affordable. My friend invited me for a coffee and since I have my iPAD2, I open the Website. She was so happy with the price of the scrub set and she loves the variety of colors. She was planning to buy the scrub set for her too. Anyway, when she looks at the picture above, she adored the scrubs for kids. I know her good and I bet, she will buy the scrubs for her son. Well, I am just happy that she loves the Website that I recommend. I guess the quality and price made her decision to buy the products.

Tour Booking

My wife is checking on a tour booking to the historical places in the Philippines. I wanted to see Corrigidor place which my uncle was stationed during WW ll. We plan to have a vacation on February and see at least two Asian countries such as Singapore or Malaysia before we head back to the US. We are currently searching for an affordable ticket. During this time, the prices are supposedly high but, we can get a body pass from our friends who are working in the airline company. My wife booked her family to fly to Manila by February early next year and I thought, it would be nice to meet them there. We all could go to the Northern part of the country and visit the historical place where American lost their lives to the Japanese invasion in WW ll. This country is an ally to the US for so many years now in fact, if you visit this country, everyone can speak English. It is their second language because of American influence. It would be an awesome experience for me to see the mountains and the beaches of this country as well. Honestly, I could not wait! I really hope that we can find a deal breaker price of tickets.

Correct Travel Documents

When traveling on a ship or plane whether traveling domestic or international you must have the correct travel documents or your trip can be delayed or canceled.

For example if you are going on a cruise which many people do this time of year it is important to have the correct travel documents when you show up at the port for departure.

If you are an American citizen you basically only need your US passport. If you are a green card holder or permanent resident you will need your green card, your passport and it is advisable to take a copy of your marriage license. If you are a tourist from another country and decided to take a cruise from the United States to a foreign port you will need your passport and a valid reentry visa. You may already have the reentry visa if you had obtained a visa to come to the United States make sure the visa has a multiple entry clause allowing you to go in and out of the United States for a certain period of time. So before you depart on your trip just check your documents to make sure they are in order.

Finding a Property

I was thinking that we need a propertyguru right now. Our realtor called us few days ago that the latest property that we bid on had a contract already. We were so devastated because we love the location and the property is great. It needs some TLC and new appliances but, the price is just right. I told my wife that we will wait for another month before we look for another property. It seems that all the properties that we like seem to get sold right away. Anyway, we are not a new home buyer because we own two properties already. The properties that we have are foreclosure properties and we have no problem dealing with it. In fact, we were able to get the properties with such smooth processing. We called another realtor and she showed us properties. We found three properties that we like and when we sign the papers to bid, someone has closed it in an hour ahead of us. The excitement was above our heads but, it just drops downhill! Maybe, this is not the time yet and we need a break for house hunting. My wife is really hopeful that soon we will find our new home.

Travel insurance

When taking a trip such as a cruise or international travel you might think about obtaining travel insurance.

Travel insurance will cover you in the event you have a trip cancellation or interruption. This is not an expensive insurance and can be as low as $2.50 cents per day. You may purchase travel insurance that will cover medical costs while in a foreign country. Many people prefer to purchase travel insurance that will cover the cost of the trip if for some reason it is canceled or you can't make it for example for medical reasons. Many plans will offer trip interruption loss of baggage or medical evacuation. You don't expect to cancel or even have a medical emergency while traveling but these things happen so you should be prepared by having travel insurance. So before embarking on your adventure check with your agent about obtaining travel insurance it will give you peace of mind.

The Tim Tebow Show

Yes the NFL game between Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos should have really been called the Tim Tebow show.

During the first three quarters of the game the Denver Broncos did not show us very much. The sports commentators kept pointing out all the mistakes that were made by the offense and defense of the Denver Broncos. I call these guys Masters of the obvious. In the fourth quarter the Broncos came alive with Tebow at the helm and scored enough points to tie the game and send it into overtime. The credit has to go to Tebow for putting this beautiful drive together. He threw a pass which resulted in a touchdown and then decided to go for two points to tie the game he ran the two-point conversion in himself in typical Tebow style. The master of the obvious commentators of course heaped praise upon him after this. Great job Tim hang in there you are one of the best.

Rentals at Cape Cod

We just arrived from our 4-days cruising to Bahamas and we enjoyed it a lot! I am retired so; what better way to live an exciting life would be to travel. I was actually researching about the small islands of Cape Cod. I have been to Massachusetts when I was younger and I want to explore the places along Cape Cod Canal. In fact, I was checking on the Cape Cod rental in the area. If it is off-season, the price of the vacation rentals in the area is really affordable. A weekly rental in a cottage-like property would really amaze my wife. I was actually looking for a cottage which is nearby the beach area and a walking distance to the historic town. I love the beach and my wife loves to shop in a small boutique in a small town in the island. Cape Cod is an interesting place to visit and by the look of the arm-shaped peninsula, this place has full of charm and mystery. As I was searching for a rental property in this area, I found out that most of the properties have distinctive style of architecture. The next travel that we plan to have is Cape Cod and we are so excited to push through this plan.

Early Christmas Shopping List

It is still in the month of October but my wife is now preparing to buy gifts for Christmas. Her friends and relatives in the Philippines are expecting her gifts so; she already prepares them now so she can send it early in time for Christmas.

Here are the things that she is planning to buy: Toys for her nephews and nieces. They told her “Angry Bird” toys are popular in the Philippines. She wants to give scents for her girlfriends and clothes for her relatives. Printed shirts for her cousins because they love it and plus size dresses for her aunts. But, we have a special something for her mom which is a big secret.

The list is not yet complete and she will have to finalize it tomorrow. She thought of other things and hoping she can find some nice gift items for her family.

I do not usually wear formal wear except when I attend weddings or funerals. That's really true! But, sometimes we need to loosen ourselves and explore other activities.

Cruise Ship Tipping

So you going on a cruise fun in the sun visiting exotic places world-class entertainment and endless buffets who could ask for anything more.

When you book your cruise you will notice that you have been informed there will be a automatic gratuity added to your bill. This will generally run $12 a person per day for the length of your cruise. You as a guest on the cruise ship should not feel obligated to offer a tip for good service. But if you have had exceptional service from a member of the crew and you would like to offer a gratuity they are allowed accept. There is generally no need to tip but if you feel you want to acknowledge a particular individual it is really up to you. Just use your own discretion and have a great time cruising the high seas.

House Hunting

If you are preparing to purchase a new home and have been on that never ending quest of house hunting you might try Central Florida as it is truly a buyers market.

There are really some great bargains in central Florida and especially in Cocoa and Cocoa Beach. I would you like to find a three bedroom two bath in good shape for the price of $39,000 to $49,000 some homes even come with a pool. Sounds too good to be true. Due to the abundance of foreclosed homes these prices are a buyers Paradise so if you are planning to make a home purchase you can't go wrong in Florida. Be sure to use a local reputable real estate agent who can guide you through the entire process.

The Court Reporting

I remember a local TV show in the Philippines, entitled “Case Unclosed” which is usually aired every Thursday. The TV Show features some of the sensational cases in the Philippines that is up until now is not yet solved by the authorities. The major reason was due to lack of evidence, witnesses and many others. I like the show because it brings me back to where and when the case happened and how did it happened.

While watching the show, I couldn’t help but think about the hardworking men behind it. The show was very informative. Probably they hired some individuals through court reporting services because all of the information in the show was all very detailed. They have accurately reported the time, date, place and they even provide visuals and re-enactment to make the case understandable and interesting to the viewers. Other legal terms were explained to suit to audience understanding.

Thinking about those cases that are still unclosed up until now, I think our country needs more able men to solve these. Aside from reliable court reporting services, I think our country needs able men who will stand up for what is right and true, who will not be bribe with money, and most of all who has the love for God and his country.

A Marble Fireplace

Imagine this: a home with a marble fireplace …

It’s every woman’s dream to have a home with very beautiful furniture and fixtures. Think about a kitchen with elegant counter tops and tables made of marble. Visualize having a marble fireplace in the living room. That tops everything else!

Why would a woman want a marble fireplace in her home? This may sound a little sentimental, but a fireplace represents warmth, and for many families, gathering together in front of the fireplace during cold evenings and sharing stories can be life’s greatest moments worth remembering.

Here’s a list of some questions interested people may ask about marble furniture and fixture such as when considering making a marble fireplace:

Will it cost much? The answer is yes and no. Yes, it will be a little expensive if the choice of marble is of high quality. On the other hand, it can also be a “no” because there are less-expensive types of marbles that can also be used.

Are there many colors to choose from? Yes, there are at least 18 colors to choose from. Examples of marbles in light colors include Carrara White, Crema Marfil, Calacata Belgia, and Botticino Friorito.

Will it be worth it? Of course! A marble fireplace is an amazing addition to a beautiful and loving home – the warmth it brings makes the home feel affectionate and makes it more comfortable – a place worth coming home to at the end of the day.

The Limo Services

Are you holding a very important event where you will be transporting very important guests from one venue to another? Do you need limo services for a very special occasion?

Parking Space

When traveling by air you know from experience that many airports are not user-friendly when it comes to parking. This is not the case here at the Orlando international Airport. If you are going to pick up someone at the airport you may use short-term parking right across the street from the terminal. The short-term parking is divided into two terminals and they are also color coded, orange for Terminal A, and green for Terminal B. When parking in the short term garages you will have easy access to the terminals.

Another option provided by the airport is called long-term parking which consist of several different parking lots that surround the airport were you may park your car for a longer period of time at a reduced rate. They have buses running 24 hours that will pick you up and return you to your car. The lots are also color coded to make it easier for you to remember where you park your automobile.

The last option available to you is off airport parking which is provided by private companies. These lots are cheaper than parking at the airport. I think the Orlando Airport Parking is reasonable whether you use short-term parking or long-term parking.

Tax Preparer

Two years ago, when my wife was bored at home, she decided to enroll in a Tax Course. She had been asking me so many questions about tax laws and family exemptions for so long. And though I provided some information about taxation in the US, she wanted to know more especially on the preparation of tax returns. She was fascinated about the tax laws of the US because according to her, tax law in this country is far better compared to her country. After the course that lasted for few months, she was so happy with her grades in fact, she got "A" equivalent. Now, she wanted to pursue it and become a tax preparer as a sideline career.

After knowing the basic knowledge of tax laws, she did our tax returns for the last two years now. It was easy to prepare with the help of software for tax preparation. She was able to file and prepare our tax papers correctly and everything went well. Every year, there is a course given to advance the skills and knowledge of a person about income tax and she took all those classes. Becoming a tax preparer is a rewarding career and she enjoyed it.

A real estate agent as a potential to go from a one-man show to having several agents working for him. So if you think you would like becoming your own boss, working on your own time, and developing your own ideas you might try the real estate business.

New Look For Your Home

They say there is no place, like home and I agree to that. It’s even great to stay at your own home if you have the things that you need. But once in a while, you need to beautify your house to make your stay comfortable and cozy. After all, it’s your own house and you have every right to decorate or renovate the area that needs to be changed. Living in a dainty and beautifully constructed house makes the owner happy, right? Do you want to change the style of your window and go for a contemporary or modern look? You can try vinyl siding NJ as they are known for their quality service. If you visit the Website of Tri-State Window and Siding Factory, you can see the very outstanding workmanship of this company. They have been in this business for over three decades and so far they have proven their worth to their customers. They also want to give their customer the satisfaction that they deserved.

Private Jet

Do you often go on a trip either for business or leisure? And how was the experience? Did you ever encounter problems to some of your trips? Do you want to book your flight on a private jet?

Flying in an aircraft to take you to your destination is what we usually do. But if ever you have a very important event or occasion to attend to and no one’s going to take you there, you can simply rent or book a private jet. It may sound expensive but I guess it is the best option you get. Besides, it will bring you to the place that you specifically booked with them.

They make sure that you will be given the proper information that you need to know.

Food Trip

My wife and I love to dine out and explore the food variations such as Italian, Chinese and Japanese cuisine. When we travel, we make it a point to try the famous recipes in the area. At home, we are experimenting few of the recipes to make it our own. We love to travel, and we certainly enjoyed eating. I personally love Italian Soups and Broccoli Cheddar as well as French Onion Soup is my favorite. When I was in the army, I was a cook and I know a lot of food recipe.

When I was younger, I traveled Europe and been to so many places such as Germany and Spain. I lived there for so many years and I am familiar with German and Spanish cuisine. In Germany I love the Goulash soup with dark bread and in Spain, I love Paella. In the morning, I love to eat Tortilla Patata. Traveling to HomeAway UK and Paris France was exciting because I went there for a short vacation. I still remember the places that I visited and I always stop by to a restaurant for fish and dip. Anyway, those travels are the good old days but, I gathered a Travel cook book from the places that I had been.

Amanda Knox Free

Amanda Knox is a free woman now. An Italian court overturned a guilty conviction on appeal for murder. She was freed from prison hours after the court found her not guilty. She has been reunited with her family and is on her way to Rome where she will leave for the United States as soon as possible.

The Italian court acquitted her on all charges but one which was implicating her former boss in the murder. He was eventually found innocent after serving some time in jail. She was fined €22,000 and sentenced to time served three years which made her eligible to leave Italy a free person.

While waiting for the verdict seated at the table with her lawyers she looked very pale and at times was sobbing and to be consoled by one of the female lawyers. When the decision was read she was escorted immediately out of the courtroom by the police guard it looked at times like they had to hold her up and she was sobbing and could hardly walk. I would estimate she will leave on the first available plane in the morning. She was freed from prison only hours after the verdict. Goodbye Italy hello America.

What Happen To Free Speech

ESPN has announced it is cutting ties with Hank Williams Junior for his remarks about Hitler on the Fox and friends morning show. I didn't think the remarks were appropriate myself but not a fire able offense.

I guess ESPN is trying to be politically correct as usual but I did think we still had free speech in this country. I have noticed no one gets fired or condemn when remarks are made about the tea party or GOP candidates it seems like a one-way street. They don't seem to reprimand some of their commentators for on air remarks. Of course they are free to fire anybody they like but let us be on the lookout for remarks made by ESPN personnel in the future and see what the consequences are. Hank Williams can survive without ESPN and so can the rest of us. I will miss the opening song on Monday night football it really puts you in the spirit and nobody can do it like Hank Williams Junior. I don't know what they have planned for the new intro but for sure it will never be the same.

Quality Education Online

Remember the days where people can earn a living without even finishing their studies? Now, it is hard to find a work if one do not have a diploma in college. You cannot actually blame the people for they have reasons why they stopped going to school. It may be due to financial constraint that led them to work on an easy job to feed their family. Or, perhaps the course they wanted to take was not available at the school they were planning to study.

But with the recent technology, one goes to school and get the course he likes and work at the same time. If you have heard of, they offer online courses for people interested to go back to school. They even offer scholarships to those who deserve it. I recommend you check with Walden University's online degree programs for the course that you desire to take. You can also learn about Walden by checking their Website to get detailed information. What is nice about Walden is that you are assured to get a career once you are done with your studies as they aim to produce quality students regardless of status, race, sex and culture.

The Blame Game

It seems every day that I turned the TV on there is president Obama having a news conference or pitching his job Bill or stimulus bill.

After listening to all the rhetoric and spin it seems that we are playing an endless blame game. The unemployment rate has been around 9% for most of 2011 was over 9% for 2010 and a lot of 2009 and it is predicted to remain above 8% until at least 2014.

I do not give all the blame to the Obama administration. The last year in office President Bush really did nothing to help and added to national debt. The Congress seems to be fighting among themselves and accomplishing absolutely nothing also. They have the lowest rating in history I think it hoovers around 3% of approval of the American people. But I have noticed president Obama does not take any of the responsibility or blame for our economic problems at all. He has blamed everything from the earthquake and floods in Japan, to the Arab spring, to Congress and gas prices. He trying to run far away from any type of blame. He seems to have forgotten how deep in debt he has put our country and still wants to spend more money. Soon it will be the time for the American people to speak as 2012 is just around the corner. Rather than blame everybody on the planet president Obama should stand up and take control and tried to solve this problem with the help of his GOP rivals. Now is not the time to play politics. The present administration doesn't seem to understand this but I think they will in 2012 when president Obama becomes a one term president as in the case of Jimmy Carter. I wonder who he will blame then?

Australian Open 2012

My wife's aunt who lives in Australia has invited her to witness the tennis australian open on January 16 to January 29, 2012 at the Rod Laver Arena, and she is considering the invitation. My wife is eager to go to the australian open 2012 and right now, she is very excited! I mean, who would not want that? If she goes to the Tennis Australian open, my wife will explore the wilderness of Australia and as far as New Zealand.

That would be amazing! I wish I can go with her so we can explore the countryside. We would plan a side trip to Sydney, Melbourne and see the famous tourist spots in Australia. Perhaps, we can join some tour to see the Aboriginal people. I want to try the Australian cuisine too. It will be exciting to know their culture and the local food they have in their restaurants. I am already drooling over my crazy thoughts. But then again, I do not even know if my wife will push the plan. Tennis is big sport in Australia and it is acknowledge worldwide. Could it be that not knowing how to play tennis would make this trip not exciting? I really do not think so.

Farewell to Steve Jobs

We now say farewell to Steve Jobs this is a sad day in American that this man with such innovative ideas as passed away at such an early age. We all knew that he was very sick but now reality has struck that he is no longer with us.

His influence at Apple will always be there but they can no longer count on his valuable opinion and impressive ideas. Thanks to his inventions iPhone, iPad and the Mac Apple will always remain on top. It will be hard to replace his insight and vision and technical skills combined with his marketing skills. Apple will not fail without Steve Jobs but his guiding hand and innovative ideas will be sorely missed.

Sourcing Agents

China sourcing agents are everywhere. Is that the trend now? Three years ago it was India and the Philippines that had to compete for outsourced contact services. Now, China sourcing agent brings China to the world, and we are not talking about out of the country outsourcing. We are talking about China coming over here in the US! So much Chinese goodies and stuff, Chinese products, produce, and I heard, we're waiting for China to supply oil to the world? Are they winning Spratly's from all the other claimants? Is it true that they are now the world's greatest?

The world really has turned one hundred eighty degrees for China. They are now huge! They are booming and getting to be the only one country in the world that has not experienced economic windfall. And why is that? China has continued to soar higher in terms of development and they are also leading in Asia. Soon after, they shall lead the world too, hmmm... perhaps. Well, Chinese people are always keeping their foot forward. That is how the success stories of famous Chinese business tycoons have been told over and over. Doesn't matter how they started, what's important is that they have surpassed trials, won battles and has now become really rich.

Homeward bound Amanda Knox

Amanda Knox has left Italy and arrived in England this morning. She then boarded a flight to the USA and is now homeward bound.

I cannot imagine how she and her family must feel but I am sure it is filled with relief and joy to be leaving Italy. The Italian courts finally came to their senses and found this woman and her boyfriend innocent.

I noticed some of the news commentators are asking what will she do now? I'm sure she would like to spend time with her family and get some much needed rest after this four-year ordeal.

The television pundits of course are saying she will write a book make a movie and do many interviews on the talk shows. I agree and hope she makes a lot of money as she deserves it for what has happened to her.

What a difference between how the public views Amanda Knox versus Casey Anthony. I doubt Ms. Knox will have any trouble selling a book a movie or doing interviews. On the other hand Casey Anthony who some say is the most hated woman in the world if not the world at least the United States. Is viewed totally different as many people vow not to buy her book see her movie or watch an interview. Both accused of murder both acquitted. I do think that Ms. Knox was unjustly charged and is very glad that she would was found innocent. On the other hand Ms. Anthony was acquitted by the court but many people still believe that she murdered her child and will never forget it or to change their mind. It will be interesting to see what paths the two women will take. Only time will tell.

Finding an Airsoft Stores

Playing with airsoft gun is a very good exercise alternative. One gets to have the fun while losing the pounds. And the best thing is that, it is a strategic game that applies team work and lots of running. Fashionably, one gets to wear military uniforms and accessorize with military guns as well as all other gadgetry but, these are not real.

Airsoft is a purely recreational application in mind, and the sport is enjoyed by all ages by both male and female. That is why Airsoft Stores are just about everywhere. The minimum safety level of gear required to participate in most airsoft games include a pair of impact-rated goggles to protect the eyes of the players. There will be minimal damage to other body parts if shot from at least ten feet away by a gun with typical muzzle velocity.

When one uses traditional prescription glasses or sunglasses, or even ordinary goggles that are not designed specifically for use with airsoft or paintball guns, then he or she is endangering himself or herself. These may break or shatter on being struck causing damage to the eye. So; the only way for one to get the exact accessory is to buy them from the airsoft store. That also goes for complete airsoft uniform as well as the guns.

Fraud Protection

There are many con men and scammers thinking of new ways every day to separate you from your money. Many scammers like to you the services like Western Union to scam their victims.

Here are just a few tips that may help you from falling victim to their trap. Only send money to people that you personally know or trust. Make sure to verify any emergency that requires you to transfer money. Never discuss your personal information with anyone. Never send funds from a check before it has cleared your bank. Remember if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Western Union is a great company and will do anything to protect their customers so if you think someone is trying to scam you through a wire transfer contact them immediately they know how to deal with these types of scams.

Next target

Now that we have wiped Awlaki off the face of the earth what should our next target be? I think it is important to get the foreign terrorist such as Zawahri the number one man of Al Qaeda now that Bin Laden is sleeping with the fishes.

I think there is a far more important target we should strike first. Adam Gadahn a homegrown terrorist and traitor to our country he is the chief propaganda man for Al Qaeda. He is wanted by the FBI for treason which is punishable by death.

This young man reached his peak as a goat farmer in Southern California. The former goat farmer is believed to be hiding in Pakistan. Who knows he may be plying his trade their as they do have a lot of goats. I hope that the CIA is planning the demise of this traitor as we speak. Then we can get on to the business of sending the rest of these terrorist to their happy virgin heaven as soon as possible. I wonder if they will have goat virgins for Adam? So Mr.Gadahn keep looking over your shoulder if you hear BABABA it may not be a goat!

Have you seen the latest FX drama series which is a work-in-progress on television and I am talking about the Untitled Jersey City Project. Here is the Episode 1 and I want you to watch it and let me know what you think about the story.

Daniel Minahan is the director of this TV drama and so far, it has eight episodes. The story will evolved around the characters of  Philip Haney who is the ambitious councilman, Tonya Glanz who is the newspaper reporter, and the real estate tycoon of Jersey City, Larry Tyerman. This is an exciting drama and so intriguing because the plot of the story focuses on the two young architects who were hired to design a dream project on the Waterfront Field. This huge project was funded by a mysterious Taiwanese couple. The characters are so interesting and together with the character of the driver of Larry Tyerman who is a secret FBI agent, the story is getting more interesting right? What do you think? Who has the good intention? The story will going to unravel the corruption, the drive to become rice and the ambition of fame and fortune will turn the story interesting to watch. Who is your favorite character?

Are They Crazy

When I heard the news that the terrorist Awlaki had been taken out by a missile strike in Yemen I was very happy. This man was an American citizen and a traitor to our country his only goal in life was planning how to kill as many Americans as possible so I had no sympathy when given the good news he is no longer with us.

While watching the news this morning there are some libertarian politicians such as Ron Paul who were upset that we had killed this murdering terrorist. His opinion was we should have given him a fair trial because of his citizenship he claims he was denied due process. Is he crazy this man is running for president if he ever had any chance of being elected to that office it ended this morning. The American people are tired of opinions like this. This terrorist only goal in life was how to bring down the United States. He was an enemy combatant he got the proper due process he deserved. Let this be a lesson to future American-born terrorist the only thing waiting for you is a big BOOM that you will never hear. As for Mr. Paul he announced his retirement and hopefully in the near future we will not hear any more from him.

Another One bites the Dust

Another terrorist bites the dust. The world woke up this morning to the delightful news that Anwar al Awlaki is dead.

The American-born terrorist was killed in Yemen by an American hellfire missile. By terrorist standards he will become a martyr. By American standards is just another dead terrorist. If you are keeping score for the past few months it will read USA 2 terrorist 0. To reach the Super Bowl we have one more big fish to get the number two man of Al Qaeda whom I am sure is really looking over his shoulder today then we can concentrate on the smaller thugs and finished wiping out these useless people off the face of the earth. So the terrorists may be gone to his rewards with numerous virgins or he could be entering the gates of hell about now I would hope for the latter. There are several more American terrorist in this group let this be a warning you can run but you can't hide.

When To Buy

Is it a good time to buy a home? Many real estate experts say if you are looking for an expensive home now is not the time to buy. The reasoning behind this the prices will continue to fall in this economy. Some investors who have bought in affluent neighborhoods thought they had a bargain but prices have continued to fall and they now wish they had waited for the market to tank.

As an investor there are bargains out there if you buy in the right neighborhood. For example I have seen prices as low as $15,000 on a small efficiency condo and $44,000 on a three bedroom two bath home in the suburbs. If unemployment continues to rise the price of housing will continue to follow.

If you are searching for bargain you must look at the big picture can I purchase this property and make a profit on it as a rental or by flipping the property for a profit. You must research the property extensively to determine if you are getting a good price. Be sure to use a reputable real estate agent as they can keep you informed of the market prices and direct you to the property that surely is a bargain. They will also be able to run comparisons on the property in the neighborhood of where you would like to purchase. Good luck in your search there are still bargains out there.

Breast Cancer Awareness

My mother died of a breast cancer when I was in my 30's and all of us are devastated. My mother's battle of the disease hit us hard. That was the saddest moment of our lives. So, whenever I saw the breast cancer awareness products that bring back memories of my mom. I support all the breast cancer awareness campaigns by the private sectors as well as the government. In fact, I have a sticker displayed on the back window of my car showing my support of this cause. I am so dedicated to help spread the awareness campaign and the importance of early breast cancer detection. We all should support this type of campaign and advocacy because when they raise funds, they lobby for better care, more knowledge, and more patient empowerment.

Most of the funds which are raised for breast cancer awareness are spent on screening programs, research, education and treatment. According to the study, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. We need to support this cause and in our own little ways, we can make a difference. We honor those who have lost their battle by showing our support to the advocacy of finding the cure of breast cancer. Let us donate and fight this life threatening disease.

Bargains in Florida

If you are buying a home and want to obtain a real bargain you might try the state of Florida. The housing crisis has hit the state of Florida very hard. I was in the city of Titusville looking for some real estate bargains as over 9000 people have been laid off their from the space program. I was not disappointed.

I will give you a sample of what to expect if shopping for real estate bargains. This was a great investment potential. Two bedroom one bath condo assessed at $38,000 by tax assessor. Ceramic tile in living room, dining, and bath. New counter tops and light fixtures new hot water heater to be installed soon. Total asking price $22,000. All appliances will remain with the home. If this is not a bargain I don't know what is. If you are seeking to make a new start somewhere Titusville Florida might be just the place for you.

Bill of Rights

The first ten amendments to the Constitution is the Bill of Rights.

The Bill of Rights is the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. When the Framers wrote the Constitution, they did not focus on individual rights. They focused on creating the system and structure of government.

Many Americans believed that the Constitution should guarantee the rights of the people, and they wanted a list of all the things a government could not do. They were afraid that a strong government would take away the rights people won in the Revolutionary War. James Madison, one of the Framers of the Constitution, wrote a list of individual rights and limits on the government. These rights appear in the first 10 amendments, called the Bill of Rights.

Some of these rights include freedom of expression, the right to bear arms, freedom from search without warrant, freedom not to be tried twice for the same crime, the right to not testify against yourself, the right to a trial by a jury of your peers, the right to an attorney, and protection against excessive fines and unusual punishments. The Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791.

Requisite to Citizenship

If you want to become a citizen of the US, you need to study the civics and history of the US. First, you should know that:

The Supreme Law of the land is the Constitution. The Founding Fathers of the United States wrote the Constitution in 1787. The Constitution is the “supreme law of the land.” The U.S. Constitution has lasted longer than any other country’s constitution. It establishes the basic principles of the United States government. The Constitution establishes a system of government called “representative democracy.”

In a representative democracy, citizens choose representatives to make the laws. U.S. citizens also choose a president to lead the executive branch of government. The Constitution lists fundamental rights for all citizens and other people living in the United States. Laws made in the United States must follow the Constitution.

Android on Straight Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

I used to Call a friend using the International Long Distance from my cell phone. I paid additional amount to get a lower rate for International calling. But,  when I read my phone bills every month, it never makes any difference. My monthly phone bills are too high and I am getting tired of paying a lousy service with so many hidden charges.

I am using an Android phone so; I plan to get the Android on Straight Talk because I like the features of this phone. It has a camera and Bluetooth which is very important for me. They have $45 unlimited monthly service which includes calls, text, picture messaging and web browsing. That is really affordable plus no contract at all. I asked few of my friends who are Straight Talk users, they love the connection because it has a great connectivity and the coverage is excellent nationwide. They have no problems when they switch to Straight Talk and they just Hook, line and sinker. They save a lot of money and they love the Straight Talk service. If it works for them, it will going to work for me too.
