What's Up With Me?

I have been sleeping these last few days. I am always tired since the day after Christmas. At first I thought I was just exhausted with all the stuff that's been going on due to holiday season. But now I am thinking, I don't think this is normal at all. I been sleeping so much, much more than I normally do. I been having some weird feeling every morning, I feel like I always want to puke. My body always feels tired, I am always lazy and most of the time I don't want to do anything but sleep. Oh yeah, I checked the calendar and my period still not here. I am thinking I guess I am pregnant but I am not really sure and I don't want to jump into conclusion right now. Getting pregnant is not really on our plan right now but if I am then I will be happy about it. As I am typing this, my eyes is starting to close again. my goodness, I just wake up a few minutes ago and here I am again wanting to sleep. Well, anyways, people won't see me always online these days. And sorry to all my blogger friends if I am not visiting your blogs. I'm just so lazy these days but I promise to make it up as soon as I'm back to my normal self. Happy new year to everyone!

Winter package at Hilton Hotels

Hiltonsocial-ad-300x400



I found this wonderful website that really caught my attention. The picture above is the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. The Hilton Promenade is located in downtown Branson, Missouri. The area is close to theaters, malls, golf courses and many more attractions. So when you stay in the hotel, you will never get bored with all the places you can visit. The part that really attracts me is the condos with the view of Lake Taneycomo and downtown Branson, Missouri. My husband and I visited Missouri one time and we go to some places like the Silver Dollar City, The Branson Family Fun Factory and the White water. We also went to stay for a little bit Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. We are impressed with the Amenities and Services they offer and you will have choices for the accommodations. It was really fun staying there and I love the Liberty Tavern Restaurant. Foods are amazing and it serves breakfast, lunch and dinners. I wish to go back there again because last time, wasn't able to get some memorable pictures. There are a lot of things you can do in Branson like going to the amusement park, trying new foods by visiting restaurants around the area. You can also attend some exhibits and shows while in Branson. For people planning for a winter getaway, check out Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel because they have a wonderful winter escape package. I see they winter escape package in Las Vegas and oh boy! I would really love to go there since winter in Ohio is not fun at all. Anyways, the package includes two complimentary breakfast buffets, two cocktails, and a gaming credit.

# Oh My Gosh! I have to say that for me, the one thing that turns me on the most is when he talks to me. Says erotic things, like, lay back and relax honey, or you like that don't you baby. I find that it makes me get into the mood all the more, and the passion heightens as well. -Jen

Family Movie Night




My husband and I love watching movies. We share the same interest of the kind of movies we like to watch. We have what we call family movie night. We usually watch movies together in the weekend. But before we start the movie, we usually order our favorite pizza and have some drinks ready. Sometimes, we make a whole bowl of pop corn and then make ourselves comfortable at the couch and start the movie. Husband and I love to watch horror movies, comedy, documentary, suspense and thriller. Every now and then, we watch some action movies and some drama. I am choosy when it comes to drama movies. When it's drama, I want it to have a point or a message. It always annoyed me whenever I watch a drama movie and then find out at the end that there really is no message. Even horror, comedy, documentary, suspense and thriller should always have a message. I'm honestly not so crazy about having a message of the horror movies, I just want to be scared. And the same goes with comedy, I just want to laugh. I love the weekend and I love watching movies together with family. The trailer video above is All Roads Lead Home The Movie and this is actually a nice trailer. It's safe for the whole family, why not watch it next time you gather for Family movie night. Try to watch the trailer and I am sure, your whole family will love to watch this movie. So next time you have a family movie night, pick up a copy of All Roads Lead Home The Movie.

Menstrual Stem Cells

Some stem cells found naturally in the menstrual blood may help cure some diseases. We might think that having a monthly period is always a hassle. Did you know that we can collect and preserve stem cells from our monthly natural blood? Yes, I know it's funny but there is a chance that stem cells that are found from the monthly period of women can be useful in the future. There is a way to preserve and collect menstrual stem cells. Using the C'Elle patented technology; we can now preserve menstrual stem cells. The reason why it is good to preserve and collect menstrual stem cells is because it shows some signs that it can repair heart problems. And possibly treats major diseases that kill hundreds of Americans each year like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, MS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. It can also be converted into cosmeceutical applications like anti-aging and wound-healing. It will be nice to be able to contribute something for the future of our healthcare and helps saves life or maybe it might even save our own life in the future. I always thought that receiving nice material things are like the greatest gift for me but I was wrong. The greatest gift that everyone could receive is life itself. Won't it be nice to learn that in the future when you needed help, you are guaranteed to be able to get it? That there is a way and there is a choice to have it? It's not absurd to think ahead, start contributing for the future of our healthcare. Start learning about how you can preserve stem cells from your monthly period.

Freezing and My laundry Soap!

Yesterday I bought some liquid laundry soap because I was planning to do the laundry today. So today, as I was gathering the dirty clothes to do my laundry I just realize something. The laundry soap that I bought yesterday is in the car's trunk and it was 1 degree last night. So then it hit me, there's no way I can do my laundry today. I got out and pick up the laundry soap in the car's trunk and yes it is totally frozen. It's like a whole block of ice. Today the temperature is 14 degrees but the wind chill is actually negative 1 degree. So I tried to thaw the frozen laundry soap by putting it directly to the heater vent. So right now, Im still waiting for it to be thawed and it's like the whole day now and it is still frozen. I guess I have to reschedule doing the laundry for later tonight. I just hate it when it's freezing, you can't even go out without putting heavy coats and snow boots. And I am so stupid to left the laundry soap the whole night in the car. I learn my lesson today, and will never do that again. Not much today, it is still freezing and right now I am just downloading music to my mp3. I am bored to death, just here watching the snow outside and wishing it's still summer. Well anyways, merry christmas to everyone.

Potato Pancakes

I just want to share this tips that was sent to me from my shespeaks forums. I tried it and I'm quiet happy with the result. It is simple and easy.

1. Choose a starchier potato. Because most latke recipes call for pan frying in oil, the more starch in the potatoes, the crispier they will stay. Baking potatoes, like Russets, are probably the best choice for crispy latkes.

2. Lessen the oil by oven baking. Your latkes will come out just as crispy, if not crispier, when you oven bake them. It also saves you lots of calories because you don’t have to use a lot of oil.

3. Soak potatoes before cooking. After grating the potatoes, soak them in water for a few minutes then squeeze out the liquid. This keeps the pancakes from browning too quickly when cooking.

4. Make ahead for easy eating. Latkes can be made up to eight hours in advance and just reheated in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 5 minutes or until warm.

5. Create your own variety. Grated zucchini, grated apples, cheese, beets, almost any starchy fruit or vegetable will work in latkes. Be creative and make your own traditional signature latkes.

Classic Potato Latkes
Makes 12 servings

Ingredients:
1 pound potatoes, peeled, grated, soaked in water, drained
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil

Merry chrismas to everyone!

I believe December is not Jesus Christ Birthday. I am not so much of a fan about going crazy celebrating Christmas because I really don't believe that Jesus Christ was born on December. The fact that December is winter doesn't make sense about the shepherds out during Jesus Christ's birth. But yes I still do celebrate Christmas not because I believe it is the day Jesus Christ was born but because I really don't know when was He born? So even if it is not December I still celebrate it not really thinking of the season but just thinking whatever day was it, I'm still thankful that He was born and died for us. In a few days, we will be celebrating Christmas and husband and I decided to celebrate it with Daddy instead of just me and my husband. We did not buy any gift to anybody because financial issue is so part of it. But who cares about gift, the most important thing is we will celebrate it and enjoy and will have fun. So to everyone, Merry Christmas and have a bountiful new year!

Yahoo Games Online

Last night I decided to try yahoo games online. Funny but I never pay any attention to yahoo games online before. I only use yahoo to browse and check mails but not to play games. So Last night as I was browsing my yahoo homepage, I decided to click on yahoo games. At first I was not interested at all but since I was kind of bored so I checked it. I was just browsing around the games and trying to choose which one I want to try when I finally decided to click the word games.

Nothing really in particular and then I click this game called word racer and guess what, I enjoy it so much that I sit for a long time infront of the pc without doing anything but playing that certain games.

A Warning To Internet Explorer Users

I blog before about switching from Internet Explorer browser to Mozilla Firefox. The reason I switched because of a lot of problems with my Internet explorer browser. It hangs up, it freeze, and out of nowhere browser just sit there inoperable. So I finally get tired of it. No matter how much I update my browser, it still happens and it is so annoying especially when you are doing something important. Well last night as I was reading news in yahoo I found this important article. Please read and if you are using internet explorer right now, this concerns you too.

Major flaw revealed in Internet Explorer; users urged to switch

The major press outlets are abuzz this morning with news of a major new security flaw that affects all versions of Internet Explorer from IE5 to the latest beta of IE8. The attack has serious and far-reaching ramifications -- and they're not just theoretical attacks. In fact, the flaw is already in wide use as a tool to steal online game passwords, with some 10,000 websites infected with the code needed to take advantage of the hole in IE.

Virtually all security experts (as well as myself) are counseling users to switch to any other web browser -- none of the others are affected, including Firefox, Chrome, and Opera -- at least for the time being, though Microsoft has stubbornly said it "cannot recommend people switch due to this one flaw." Microsoft adds that it is working on a fix but has offered no ETA on when that might happen. Meanwhile it offers some suggestions for a temporary patch, including setting your Internet security zone settings to "high" and offering some complicated workarounds. (Some reports state, however, that the fixes do not actually work.)

Expedient patching or switching are essential. Security pros fear that the attack will soon spread beyond the theft of gaming passwords and into more criminal arenas, as the malicious code can be placed on any website and can be adapted to steal any password stored or entered using the browser. It's now down to the issue of time: Will Microsoft repair the problem and distribute a patch quickly enough to head off the tsunami of fraud that's about to hit or will it come too late to do any good?

Meanwhile, I'll reiterate my recommendation: Switch from Internet Explorer as soon as you can. You can always switch back once the threat is eliminated. (To clarify: You don't need to uninstall IE, just don't use it for the time being.)

SWITCHING

Today I decided that I am switching from get paid to blog to get paid to take survey. Yes you heard me right, I was getting tired of not having task just because my blog don't have any page rank. And I am getting tired of keep checking get paid to blog website to see if I have opportunities which most of the time are always reserved already. A lot of people are saying surveys are nothing but a scam but well not in my opinion because I receive several checks already from answering surveys. And yes it takes so long to answer surveys and yes sometimes you don't get approve on doing the surveys. But I enjoy it better because it's guaranteed everyday I have a survey task. I deposited 2 checks today in my bank and those checks came from the surveys I’m able to do. Everyday as long as I check all the survey opportunity and tried to answer it, I always have little earnings. Aside from that, I receive a couple of products to try too. But I can't say what are all the products I've tried for now since I agree not to discuss it with anyone. But the products are pretty cool and save me a lot of money because instead of buying it, I got it for free. Yes! totally free, no scams at all. It just depend what survey sites you chose and I always make sure that I am a member of a verified and legitimate survey sites. So yes I am switching now to taking surveys than hoping for an opportunity from get paid to blog. But if given a chance to do some blogs, I will still do it but I will not stress myself from now on to have any blog opportunity.

Beware It's A Scam

with our economy crisis, scam artist and con artist are taking advantage on it. People lose jobs and are desperate to find anything that will give them an extra income. Who won't like extra money in your pocket? Of course, everyone would like to be able to get extra income to help through the tough times. I for one would admit on it, being unemployed I was so desperate to find a job. So what I did is I put a job advertisement on craigslist. Well, one person did reply to it and yes I jump for joy when I got the email. It was about a babysitting job, and she wants to know my name and address. I still did not think that time that this person is a con artist so then I gave my name and address. Communication with her was good, she claims to be from London and then she has some business here in the US and she needs someone to babysit her little boy. Well of course, it's no problem with me. She is not even worried how much it will cost her, wow, it made me feel great and excited. She said the following month they will arrive here in the US and as soon as their here she needed to drop the little boy at my house since she will be busy most of the day. I still agree with her because I am looking for an extra income. Now she then told me, she will send me a check in advance to pay for the whole month to babysit her boy. That surprised me already and makes me start to doubt and still I agree and happy and doubtful with the situation. I told my husband about it, and boom! He explodes in anger because he knows right away it was a scam. But I being so positive and hoping it's not a scam at the end did not listen to him. After a few days, I receive a check in my mailbox. Whoa...what is this? The check is a big amount, very big and so I believe it was all a scam. So I played with the woman claiming her name is Rosanna Wells, I then sent her an e-mail telling her wow, I got the check and aren't you afraid that I will keep everything? She then reply saying she trusted me and she is forcing me to cash the check fast. Now it is clear, she is not hiring me to be a babysitter. She is hiring me to be a victim of check fraud! Well, I learned my lesson already and know it was a scam so Husband called the police and report it. The police then confirmed that yes that scam has been going on throughout the whole country. They said as long as we did not cash the check, we'll be fine. So then we just tear up the whole check and I erase my job advertisement in craigslist. Well here is some Idea of scams going on these days.

1. E-mail scam- I always receive this scam like everyday. It usually will ask you to click the link claiming that it will protect the financial market’s. It will then go to a fake webpage that really looks like your bank. And then when you update your bank account to that webpage, you've just given them all the information to your account. It's a scam! Never and again never log to your bank from a stranger link. Always type your bank link address when you want to update your account. And report the email to spam@uce.gov.
2. Repair your credit- since banks are being strict now who to give credit cards to due to economy crisis. Debt settlement companies are taking advantage saying they will help you repair your credit. But after you pay them, they won't pay your debts off. If there are hidden fees anything over $50 a month, someone will accept you over the phone, anyone who tells you to stop paying your creditors, if you were not being educated first about your financial options. It's a scam! You really don't need a debt settlement relief agent to wipe out your debt legally. You can do it by making a few phone calls to the companies you owe money to. But if you are hesitant, then find an accredited counselor (www.debtadvice.org).
3. Moving company- once all your things are on their truck, your price goes up so high in an instant. It's a scam! If you are moving and needs to hire from a moving company, check the company first at www.protectyourmove.gov or www.movingscam.com. On the moving day if the movers doesn't give you a copy of the federal handbook Your Rights and Responsibilities when you move, it is a big red flag and if your price jump up so high, call the National conference on weights and measures (402-434-4880) for your local agency.
4. Check Fraud- well this is the experience I wrote above. If you receive a check with a big amount in your mailbox and don’t know where it came from or even if you know and really never meet the person who you made a deal with. It's a scam! Never and never cash that check or even wire money to strangers. Whenever someone you don't know who wants you to cash a check and wire it elsewhere it is a big scam. But if you already did wire it, stop payment by calling the wire transfer company, otherwise it's too late. It's either you have to pay the money yourself or go to jail.
5. Fake Debt Collectors- if you receive a call claiming to be from a debt collectors and threatening you to go to jail if you don't pay. It's a scam! If you never receive the request for payment on the said company by writing then don't do it. Don't just send payment to a creditor claiming the next day they will have you arrested if you will not send your payment right away. Whether it's a bonafide debt collector or a con artist, tell them to put it in writing and hung up the phone. If they continue to call then file a police report for harassment. Be aware that these scam artists uses official and ominous sounding names.
6. Online listings for bargain in apartment rentals- If the price sounds too good to be true. It's a scam! Well yes the property is real but the landlord is not. Scammers grab a photo of some apartments and posted it online and place a dummy rental listing on craigslist. If someone is dumb enough to fall for it, the scammers will tell the renters they will send the keys right away when the renters wire the payment in advance. And if they make alibis to meet you in person, they are a scam artist!

The Second Coming Signs

The Bible indicates a series of signs of the second coming of Christ. Here are the following signs of Christ second coming.

1. The Gospel will be spread- everybody will hear the gospel of God, it don't matter which part of the world they live. And yes this is actually happening now, some missionaries even reach even the most dangerous places to go. Some are that has still cannibals tribes.
2. People losing Faith- even when the gospel is spread, one sign of the second coming is extreme weakening of people's faith. People will be very cynical about the divine truth and moral values.
3. Many false prophets will appear- many of these false prophets will deceive people and entice them to join cults and sects. These false prophets will perform striking miracles that will attract you to join but beware.
4. Jews will turn to Christ- as written in romans 11: 25-33
5. The increase of evilness and lawlessness- men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power (2 Tim 3:1-5).
6. Sorcery will become widespread- The minds of most people will be poisoned by all sorts of ungodly heresies.
7. Persecution- faithful people will be make fun of, will be persecuted, will be HATED, will be misjudge, will be called a hypocrite. Any christian will feel more and more isolated.
8. Destabilization the very foundations of the social life- Bloody wars and various disasters will reach catastrophic proportions. People will become weary from the burden of suffering from disasters. They will be unable to overcome them through personal efforts; however, they will not turn to God for help due to their own disbelief.

CALIFORNIA RUNNING OUT OF MONEY?

Found this article in yahoo news and i think it is interesting since I thought Ohio is the worse state right now. It is kind of interesting to know a state like California is actually struggling too. Here is the whole article.

Sacramento, Calif. – California lawmakers just got a Henry Paulson-like ultimatum from state officials: If they don't act, the state could be forced to suspend road, bridge, and other public-works projects as early as next week. Come March, California will be out of cash for even day-to-day operations.

A confluence of the national recession and years of legislative budget games is squeezing the Golden State as never before. Although it's not the largest budget gap the state has ever faced, this time it will be harder for California to get help from private lenders. Standard & Poor's now ranks it lower than any other state except Louisiana, which shares the same rating.

The question is: Will lawmakers finally make the tough budget decisions they've put off for so long?

"Because California does have a perennial budget crisis, it's very easy to fall into the 'boy who cried wolf' syndrome," says Dan Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at the University of Southern California. "This time the sky is really falling."

The state faces a $28 billion budget shortfall over the next two years. If nothing is done, nearly $5 billion in public-works projects could be halted in little more than a week for lack of bond sales – everything from bridge replacements to a new highway tunnel and billions of dollars' worth of school construction, according to state Treasurer Bill Lockyer.

Already, the state failed to attract enough buyers three weeks ago to sell all of the bonds it had floated, he told state lawmakers Monday. "Expecting investors to purchase our bonds now, when we can't agree on a budget that lenders can rely on, is like expecting someone to buy a stock when they know it's losing value," said Mr. Lockyer.

He and three other state finance officials testified Monday in a rare joint session of the legislature.

The picture worsens next spring if legislators don't pass some plan to increase revenues or cut spending or both. California will run out of operating cash in March, state controller John Chiang told the lawmakers. The recession has severely squeezed state tax revenues.

Normally, the state would borrow to cover any shortfall. But internal revenue sources have already been depleted and outside lenders are less accommodating.

"It's not because of [California's] economy, because it's deep and diverse," says David Hitchcock, primary credit analyst for California with Standard & Poor's. "It's because, financially, they've had budgets that have not proved realistic. They've had large deficits and they've only been able to pay for their budgets through borrowing for the last couple years."

Mr. Chiang said the state may be forced to seek special loans at exorbitant rates or issue IOUs to state workers and vendors, further damaging the California economy.

"Failure is not an option here," said Chiang, referring to the need to align state spending and revenues. "It would take years to recover ... deepening and prolonging the recession."

Bringing the budget back in line will require drastic cuts, significant tax raises, or both. Those options will harm the economy in the short run and cost the state jobs – but so would any delay in taking action, said legislative analyst Mac Taylor.

Not fixing the budget would worsen the state's credit rating, making infrastructure projects even harder to fund.

"It means that the stimulus that we all want won't occur," Lockyer said. "Millions of dollars that would have gone to thousands of private-sector businesses, creating tens of thousands of jobs, will be cut off."

Other states are stuck in similar positions of budget duress, making federal money key to jump-starting their economies, says Stephen Levy, director and senior economist at the Center for the Continuing Study of the California Economy.

Washington could also help California by backstopping state and local bonds with a federal guarantee. That would reassure investors, preventing the freeze-up in infrastructure projects. It would almost certainly cost the federal government nothing, says Mr. Levy. President-elect Obama hasn't advocated this yet, he adds, but his advisers are discussing the option.

Even with federal guarantees for bonds, lawmakers in Sacramento would still have to tackle the budget deficit, notes Levy.

During the joint session, members listened attentively, but their questions and statements afterward didn't reveal much softening of positions. Republicans signaled continued opposition to tax raises, while Democrats stressed they had already countenanced "devastating spending cuts" and some new revenue was needed. Democrats are a few seats shy of a full two-thirds majority needed to pass a budget on their own.

"It's not clear what my colleagues on the other side of the aisle want," said Karen Bass (D), speaker of the state Assembly, who helped organize Monday's joint session.

"I didn't hear anything that was new today," says Sen. Jeff Denham (R). "People around the state would expect us to deal with all of the waste first, get rid of all the bells and whistles."

To that end, he's proposing eliminating a $2 million waste-management board and supports selling state property, like San Quentin prison. He would close tax loopholes but wouldn't name any taxes he thought Republicans would be willing to raise.

"My guess is you can find a small number of Republican votes for additional taxes if there is a trade-off for some job and business incentives," says Mr. Schnur. Possible incentives include scrapping stringent 40-hour workweek regulations and scaling back on the state's ambitious greenhouse-gas targets, he says.

Globe Roaming Sim Card

Today i finally was able to use my globe roaming simcard that i receive for free. It was hard for my family overseas to contact me since to text from the Philippines to the US cost so much. And due to financial matters, it took so long for me to buy an unlock phone to be able to use the sim card. Thank goodness the simcard was free and activated and with loads already when i received it. So now im happy to use it and my family overseas has a cheaper way to contact me. The signal is pretty good here, the signal bar on my phone is full. So i would recommend using globe roaming simcard to everyone who has problem with their smart roaming simcard. Thanks to aryty for sending me a free globe roaming sim with loads.

Herbal and Natural Remedies for Cold and Flu

My husband has been sick from Cold and Flu since Friday night. It started after he has to come out in below freezing temperature to clean out the car from being buried in snow. So i research for some herbal and natural remedies for his cold and flu since it seems that over the counter medicine is not taking effect yet. Here are some herbal and natural remedies that i find out on my research.

Andrographis This Chinese herb is used to prevent or lessen the duration of a cold. It has anti-bacterial properties and stimulates the immune system. Take 300 mg of andrographolide, its active ingredient, daily. Take with food. Never take during pregnancy.

Astragalus This Chinese herb has been successfully used for centuries for colds and flu. It stimulates the immune system, so it is better to use astragalus as a preventive measure during the cold and flu season than to clear one up after you get it. May be taken as a tea, capsule or tincture.

Bee balm Native Americans used bee balm to alleviate colds and coughs. Steep two teaspoons of fresh (one, dried) bee balm leaves in a cup of hot water, covered, for four minutes. Sip a cup three times a day. Bee balm has antiseptic compounds that can help heal respiratory infections and clear nasal congestion.

Cayenne pepper Take a teaspoon (or several capsules) of pepper in a glass of water immediately when you feel a cold or sore throat coming on. This should knock it out.

Elderberry extract Extensive studies done in Israel have shown that an elderberry extract under the trade name Sambucol cut the duration of the flu in half.

Ginger Drink ginger tea to help break up a cold.

Hydrogen peroxide See detailed information under the Tips section above.

Lemon When one is sick, the body usually is over-acidic. Lemon helps promote health by quickly alkalinizing the body. Squeeze a lemon in a glass of water or tea, and drink every couple of hours.

Make a nasal rise by adding one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and a pinch of salt to a glass of warm water. Close one nostril and inhale the mixture; hold as long as you can, then blow it out. Do the other nostril. This rinse will kill off the virus that causes colds and helps keep the nasal passages moist. You will notice a marked improvement in your breathing.
Onion tea Make a tea by cutting an onion, boiling it, and drinking the juice.

Water/salt This remedy works well when you are stuffed up and your nose runs. In a large bowl or sink add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of salt. Let the salt dissolve, then immerse your face in the water for five to ten seconds; repeat 3-4 times. Keep your eyes and mouth closed, but try to breathe in the mixture. Then try a nasal rinse by putting a few drops of grapefruit seed extract in 1/2 cup of warm water and inhaling it; repeat two or three times, especially before bed and when you get up in the morning. The grapefruit seed extract will help kill off the bacteria.

Zinc lozenges Several studies have shown that taking zinc lozenges beginning within the first 24 hours of the onset of a cold will shorten its duration by about 50%. The lozenges come in zinc acetate, zinc gluconate, and zinc citrate. These lozenges should not be taken for more than a few days at a time as zinc depletes your body's store of copper. If you experience dry mouth or stomach irritation, reduce the frequency of use.

Koobface Worms

New worms target both MySpace and Facebook users and shall i add friendster users too. I had been a victim of this worms on my friendster account so i research about it. And here is what i found out:

Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content management systems, has detected two variants of a new worm, Net-Worm.Win32.Koobface.a. and Net-Worm.Win32.Koobface.b, which attack MySpace and Facebook respectively. As part of their malicious payload, the worms transform victim machines into zombie computers to form botnets.

Even though the worms are currently only infecting MySpace and Facebook users, Kaspersky Lab analysts are warning users that the worms are designed to upload additional malicious modules with other functionality via the Internet. It is highly probable that victim machines will not only be used for spreading links via these social networking sites, but the botnets will also be used for other malicious purposes.

Net-Worm.Win32.Koobface.a spreads when a user accesses his/her MySpace account. The worm creates a range of commentaries to friends' accounts. Net-Worm.Win32.Koobface.b, which targets Facebook users, creates spam messages and sends them to the infected users' friends via the Facebook site. The messages and comments include texts such as Paris Hilton Tosses Dwarf On The Street; Examiners Caught Downloading Grades From The Internet; Hello; You must see it!!! LOL. My friend catched you on hidden cam; Is it really celebrity? Funny Moments and many others.

Messages and comments on MySpace and Facebook include links to http://youtube.[skip].pl. If the user clicks on this link, s/he is redirected to http://youtube.[skip].ru, a site which purportedly contains a video clip. If the user tries to watch it, a message appears saying that s/he needs the latest version of Flash Player in order to watch the clip. However, instead of the latest version of Flash Player, a file called codecsetup.exe is downloaded to the victim machine; this file is also a network worm. The result is that users who have come to the site via Facebook will have the MySpace worm downloaded to their machines, and vice versa.

“Unfortunately, users are very trusting of messages left by 'friends' on social networking sites. So the likelihood of a user clicking on a link like this is very high”, says Alexander Gostev, Senior Virus Analyst at Kaspersky Lab. “At the beginning of 2008 we predicted that we'd see an increase in cybercriminals exploiting MySpace, Facebook and similar sites, and we're now seeing evidence of this. I'm sure that this is simply the first step, and that virus writers will continue to target these resources with increased intensity”.

Kaspersky Internet Security detected these threats proactively and signatures were added to the database on July 31, 2008.

Interesting Stuff About The Characters of Lost Tv show

I am done watching all the episodes of Lost. And waiting for next year's season 5. But for now, i found some interesting things about some of the cast of Lost. Like Kate she actually lived in the Philippines before in a nipa hut but i think they call it grass hut. She served as a missionary and that's the reason she lived for a short time in the Philippines. Also i discovered that Kate and Charlie are actually lovers in real life though they don't publicly announced it. How about Mr.Eko, he is an English model and actor. His parents are Nigerian and he is fluent in several languages, including English, Italian, Yorùbá, and Swahili. He also holds a Master of Laws from the University of London. Nickname is "triple A".
He is most known as being the criminal Simon Adebisi in the HBO TV series Oz, as well as Mr. Eko on the second season of ABC's survivor drama Lost. His film credits include Congo (1995), The Mummy Returns (2001), The Bourne Identity (2002), and Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2005). And now Sayid he was Born in London, England, of Indian origin, he is best-known for his roles in The English Patient (1996) and as Sayid in the popular 2004 television series Lost. He lives in Los Angeles, California with his girlfriend, actress Barbara Hershey. He is a recovering drug addict and alcoholic. He suffered from these conditions when he lived in London, England during his early twenties, and his promising screen career nearly ended. Andrews was forced to move across the Atlantic to America to seek rehabilitation and get his life back on track. His efforts were successful, and he has vowed never to return to London because the city provides painful memories of his alcohol and heroin addictions. Hurley was actually one of the cast on one of my favorite tv show before, it's called Becker where he plays the role of Hector Lopez. Well let's talk about the hot Sawyer. On the morning of October 12, 2005, he and his wife Yessica were robbed at gunpoint in their home. The couple was asleep when the gunman awoke them and took cash and credit cards before driving off in Holloway's Mercedes-Benz, which was found abandoned a short time later. There was no evidence that the criminals knew who they were robbing, or had targeted them because he is a celebrity. My favorite Locke won the Best supporting award on emmy against Michael Emerson who play Benjamin Linus on Lost. Ana Lucia Cortez dated Vin diesel her co-star on the movie the Fast and the Furious. In 2002, she was ranked #77 in Stuff magazine’s “100Sexiest Women In The World”, and #34 in Maxim’s "100 Sexiest Women". She dropped out of high school at 17 (after having been kicked out of 6 different schools), but later earned her GED. So those are some interesting facts about some of the characters of the Lost tv show. There are more but that's all for now.

RECEIVE MY CHECK TODAY

Today I receive my check from viewpoint forum. I am really happy because joining as a panelist to their site was not a waste. Anyways, it's not that much but still it can be use to buy some stuff I needed. After all the stress from yesterday, I am happy to get a little help. So I’m thankful to receive this check and will still continue to be a member of the viewpoint. I crave to eat some salted dried fish since yesterday but I can't find it here in Ohio. But it's ok because my friend Louwelyn from North Carolina told me last night she will send me some when she bought it. She is always nice to me even if I owe her a lot of favor. I wish someday I will be able to return the favor. Thank you so much in advance for the salted dried fish. Also today, the weather is not too bad even if it is below freezing. As long as it doesn’t snow, I’m happy with that. Well, our winter car still wasn't fix and we are still saving to have it fix. Hopefully we will be able to come up with the money to fix it. That's all for now co'z I’m still doing things around the house and I’m finishing the last 2 episodes of Lost season 4. My god, I am so addicted to this show. It is really exciting and I can't wait for January 21 when the 5th season starts. I really want to know who is Jacob? That's the biggest question most of Lost fans are waiting to be answered. So so long, goodbye, farewell for now!

STRESS

I am so stress today and also my husband. Our winter car needs repair or else it will totally shut down. Problem is? We don't have the money to have it repaired since my husband doesn’t even get a full 40 hours on his job. And worse is he is not even getting any Christmas bonus because their company is suffering from this economic problem so the boss just decided to cut off all Christmas bonuses. Well, that is not really the problem. The main problem is how to get the car fix with no money in our pocket. The money we have is just enough to pay bills and not to pay the car repair. The main reason we are worried on how to fix the car is it's not easy to walk with the temperature below freezing. We won't really care so much, if it's summer because we can always walk but this is winter! and we can't use the other car because it is not meant to drive for winter. If we drive it, it may cause accident because it will be stuck in the snow. So really, we are having so much stress. And well, decision has been made already, no Christmas gift buying or gift giving because we simply can't afford it this year. Life is really hard these days but we are doing our best to get by.
