Credit Card Protection

Credit card protection paying for credit card theft insurance borders on the ridicolous. You just dont need it. If your card is stolen, by law the most you will be liable is up to $50 for unauthorized charges made to yur account and some banks waive that and replace your card. Equally needless is credit card disability insurance that promises to cover your payments if you get sick or disabled. WHile your monthly payments might be covered, interest will continue to accrue so the debt will pile up. The company just puts your payments on hold and the balance continues to grow while you'r sick or disabled. First figure out if you're already paying these silly fees. They all appear as "Loss Protection" or something close to that on your statement and the fee is likely to be about six or seven bucks a month. If you see it call and cancel. Ask for a retroactive refund if it is not something you requested.How much you can save $6.95 a month or about $84 annually.

Remembering Our Brave Ones

Memorial Day

Where are the people? YOu can count quick the people in the church yesterday at the Old River Terrace UNited Methodist Church. Why? Some people took a vacation because of the Memorial Day. Even Daniel who runs the computer is not there,so I took it over.The church celebrates MEMORIAL DAY yesterdat to honor for those who have died in US service. It's a god service!Perfect for Memorial Day. THe Topou Family sing a special song.They are Polynesian church members. The big surprise is their 7 yrs old son sing a special solo song for the first time ever. Junior is so shy but yesterday we all surprised.His dad told us that Junior will sing a song for the first time and he just know that song 4 days ago.A polynesian song.Even his family was impressed too. Well, it's in their blood. We dont understand the song but Im sure it's a good song for GOD. Junior we are proud of you.
AT 4 oclock yesterday we went to Woodlands in HOuston.It's the first day of the Annual Texas Conference.We stop at the Marriot HOtel to register were all the delegates check-in.WHen we was there we seen the Preaher.HE told us did you already check in?what number is room?The preacher dont know that we cancell our reservation at Marriot Hotel.Why? because we are leaving to Alabama this coming Wednesday.So, we told him that we cancel our reservation and save church expenses.My husband just decided to drive early to Woodlands and go home in the evening.It's just an hour and a half from Channelview. AT 7pm there is a Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving at Woodlands United Methodist CHurch.Rev.Matt Idom does the contemporary message.Wow! it's a really, really good message.It makes me cry.It's a good service too.....

Are you afraid of a snake

Are you afraid of a snake? I am!.they said they dont bite,,,,well Im not for sure all I know is Im scared . In a chinese horoscope I was born year of the snake. Ancient chinese wisdom says a snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve.This could be taken metaphorically to mean that a Snake could never have a problem with his family starving because he is such a great mediator, making him good at business. Or it could mean that a Snake would be willing to sacrifice his possessions, something the Snake has a lot of, in order to pay for his family’s food. Any way it is interpreted is representative of the Snake’s character and is a measure of the value he puts on his material wealth. The Snake is keen and cunning, quite intelligent and wise. I remember when I was working at the Philamlife we have a plan called PROSPERITY PLAN,it's a million value and the logo, a red snake.

Anyway, this morning I went to our backyard to get something in our storage building where our flea market stuff is. When I open the sliding the door I heard a noise. I seen a black snake....that's what I seen...I scream and haller...snake! snake!...maybe if somebody seen me they thought Im crazy. I got nervous when I seen a snake even a small snake..it's not phobia because Im not shaking...So, I jump on the picnic table and call my husband.He is in the church. So, he call our neighbour.A few minutes,our neighbour arrived and ask me where is the snake.So I told him,it;s inside the building.He said where? I could not find it!can you point it to me where? i told him Im afraid on a snake just look in there.SO he look and look and he could not find it.He ask a flashlight.SO here it is the snake is under the shelf table,while me waiting outside on the top of the picnic table ha ha ha....He said here it is,would you like to take a picture.I have my cellphone on my pocket so I take I picture..Im still scared but I have still the guts to take a picture...What a knuckle head? ha ha ha ha ha..That's the snake that our neighboour kill.He is a snake killer....ha ha ha....

If the Chinese Horoscope is true...well thank you.....THe prices of goods and commodities now are too high.....So, the snake is a good sign.we will not be starving to death....ha ha ha..is it a good sign or a bad sign! Well, it's up to you to believe...

At the church, I should ride the bus with my husband.Since, the bus Ministry had a new driver volunteer I stay at the office and watch Carlo, while Craig and Kelley drive the other bus Route. I love kids? I dont know why and the kids love me.....ha ha ha.When I got tired I bring Carlo at Nursery.I went to the Sanctuary to help my husband change the banners. AT 10:30 before the service starts hazel arrived. She told me that her jewelry was stolen too. She said they are so valuable to her because they are old jewelries.Hazel did not notice yesterday,just this morning w she found out when she's getting ready to the church. But you know what? there jewelries have insurance...I just dont know if these jewelries are included but her diamonds are insured.I forgot to ask her.Insurance are good,but what if we cannot afford it. Huh! we are worry on these people.They are a good friends of ours specially my husband.He treat them like a parent. This afternoon Hazel call and inform us that her brother in-law died.His in el Paso Tx. They are living this wednesday for the funeral.They want us to watch their house and pick up mails and newspaper. To Hazel "Condolence".We are praying for your safe trip.

Alarm system

Just last week the weather here in TX, is so hot as in we are in 92 degrees. But this morning, what a chilly breeze? which is good. We just stay at home instead we supposedly watch the strawberry festival in Pasadena. We got lazy. At 11:30am we received a call from Bufallo,TX. It's karen, Hazel and harold's daughter. She want us to check her Mom and step dad because the Alarm system company call her.She call her Mom's House or cellphone nobody answer.She was so worried.They are 83 yrs old.Imagine how dependent they are?We thought is not serious because sometimes HArold and HAzel always busy in there yard mowing, sometimes cleaning their flower bed or maybe their home alarm system had a problem.So, my husband said we will visit Harold after we eat lunch but after 3 minutes Karen call again.SO, we went to HArold and Hazel's house.When we arrived there, two sheriffs was already there.The main door lock was broken and the home alarm system was making a noise too loud every 2 minutes it's stop and on again, but hazel and harold was not home. My husband told the sheriff, we are Hazel and harold's friends. So, we went inside, the key is in the floor and the drawer in their bedroom are all open and the alarm system keep on and off, so I turn it off. Im glad the password is just right beside the alarm box. So,my husband and the sheriff look around.While me, I went outside sit on the swing thinking where are they? We always worried these two people,they are old and their daughter wants to live them in Buffalo but as what I said they want to be dependent as long as they can. So, while Im in the swing I remember the other day,that Harold told me that the senior citizen will help the Rotary Club Fish Fry on that day. So, I went inside and told my husband. we are trying to get a number in the ROtary Club Center but nobody answer.So, my husband call his friend which is on his way to the Rotary CLub to check if HArold's and his wife is there.He said he will be there at the Rotary Club by an hour. We could not leave the house, the sheriff''s are gone. Karen call again,she said her brother and niece is on there way..they just live 60 miles away.So we wait them.I was so hungry! as in starving to death ha ha h....The preacher arrived ask us what happen...so we tell him.He said he will go to the Rotary to check Hazel and Harold. Huh! they dont not yet what happen....LAter on 10 inutes before the preacher left.Here they are I mean Hazel and Harold drive slowly in the driveway.Looking on us with her face expression,look on the door and look on us why we are there? She come out from the truck she said what happen? so we told her what happen....later on her son and grandaughter arrived and then we left.....it's already 1:45pm

It's a good thing they set their home alarm system when they left this morning. We should be careful every now and then. People dont care if they hurt somebody as long as they can get what they want. Some people watch you if your leaving. So check everything before you leave.Homes without an alarm system are three times as likely to be targeted than homes with one. But, if you have an alarm system and you don't use it, you might as well not have one at all. Professional thieves stake out their targets to watch their comings and goings. Over half of all burglaries committed on residences occur between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. If thieves see that you never set your alarm when you leave during the day, they'll make a move.I fell sorry for this thieves.Hope one day they caught in the act.Poor innocent people got victims!

My Flowers,they are blooming

I could not think what to post in my blog today. So, I went outside and took some pictures in my flower bed. My beautiful flowers.Finally they are already blooming.Last year, I went to a friend house and I seen this pretty flowers. So, I ask her if I could ask a couple of cut. So, she gave me and I stick on my flower bed and some on the pots. Well, Im not bragging on myself but they always told me that I have a green thumb.Do I? yes I am.....I love flowers.Anyway,this flower bloom only once a year usually they bloom on May. Look at them they are blooming and so pretty. I dont know what is the name of this flower. I seen like this in the Philippines. Everytime we went to Baguio I always bought same like this and they call it May Flower and it's white. I never seen other colors. Below, is my Sampaguita. Could you believe there is a sampaguita here in US our own national flower. I buy this in the Flea market last year. My sampaguita looks like malnourish ha ha....need to move from the pot. I dont even know what they call here in US. I just bought this and never ask what is the name..I just pick it when I know it's sampaguita. I always remember my Lola.Everytime Our sampaguita bloom she always put in a thread and make it a necklace.All her Talc powder and pefume are sampaguita.

Arm Cast Comes Off Today

Alice fell last February in their patio.Reason! she dont know all she know is she just fell.I remember it's Feb.13 before valentines day.So, we bring her at the emergency room at 6pm and we been waiting on her for 4 hours.By the way, I was with her at that time...ha ha and finally after waiting all kind of test....the Nurse said everything's fine her arm nor broken . Just take pain medicine.The following morning,Alice arm swell,hurt and she even not sleep good at that night.So, we went to her family Doctor on that morning if she could help Alice about the pain and swell. But the Doctor suggest to go to the Orthopedic. To make the story short we went to the Orthopedic doctor and he said her arm had a crack.Then, they put a cast for 6 wks.After 6 weeks we went back to the Doctor to remove the cast but when the doctor see the x-ray result he said the crack is not yet healed so he put another cast for 6 weeks again.Total 12 wks (3 months). It sucked to Alice because she couldn't do anything.Isn't it horrible! another 6 wks!ha ha.....It's kind a scary because you know why? Alice is 83 yrs old and she had an osteoporosis. But God is good. Today we went back to the doctor to remove her second cast.She had another x-ray and still her crack arm not yet really healed. He said I will not put cast no more on your arm, but try to move your arm every now and then. So, I ask the Doctor if Alice needs a therapy since her husband had a home therapy twice a wk. He said that's good. But you know what? Im just wondering why the Doctor could not tell us why the crack is not yet healed and beside he is not sure too. Im not disputing what he tell us because he is a bone specialist.Maybe, Im just a negative thinker.......ha ha ha....Well, we will see how this therapy helps on ALice.

More Blessings...

I read a magazine yesterday about a Mom could not have a kids.She dreamed to be a mother. The couple struggle to have a baby for nine years, going through endless test and costly fertility drug treatments.Nothing worked. Their last hope was in vitro fertilization but it was so expensive. Until one day she set her sights on adoption.But her husband had some fears about being a father to a child who was not a biologically his.One day when they are in the airport waiting for a flight going to her husband family, the couple received a call from a friend who knew about their plans to adopt. Her 18 yrs old daughter was pregnant and had decided not to keep the baby. The couple was schock.They never even contacted yet an adoption agency and suddenly they had to make a very big decision.The couple had to many questions.The answer seemed to be obvious but there was aone major consideration. The birth mother was white.The couple was black and they always assumed they will adopt a black baby. The number of African-American children who need loving home.Her husband had a hard time justifying adopting a baby of another race.Her husband had to many question on his self about adopting a white baby.With those question,his family was supported to the couple.They want the couple to be happy....Once the decision was made, the couple change into shifty gear.The baby will be born in a mont and they worked hard to get the legal adoption paperwork handled before he arrived.A few weeks later after that emotionally painful doctor's visit, the birth mother went into labor. The couple was there present in the delivery room and meither of them will ever forget when the doctor handed to her husband their son. At that moment her husband realized that everything what his wife telling him all along was true."The baby wasnt' a black child or a white.He was our child"

The couple know that another miracle was going to occur 18 months later.His wife become pregnant.She took 3 pregnancy test becasue she could not belive it! Complication forced her to go on total bed rest in her 12th wk and her husband took over their first baby care.The time together sthrengthened their father/son bond even more.The fact that they have different skin colors or that theur first son through adoption has never been an issue for the two boys.The two boys love each other deeply and are fiercly protective to each other.If a stranger asks about their relationship they both say matter-of-factly "HES MY BROTHER".Isnt that great.For this family Im proud of you......

Because of Divorce

After Sunday service,Me,my husband, Buffy and her kids eat at Chillis.While we are waiting our food Buffy told us about her friend in school where her kids go. A woman just got divorce hang herself in their garage last week. She had 3 kids the youngest is just 8 months old. Her 8 months old son was in the garage where she hang herself. It's so sad. Maybe she get frightened or upset and dont know what the future holds.Divorce is hard because it feels like your whole life turning upside down.Will life ever get back to normal? Will the fear, pain and uncertainty ever go away?The point here is hanging herself. She been taking drugs before she gave birth her youngest son. Probably the drugs still there inside her body and when they got decided each other the word divorce the drugs push her to .........you know what I mean. I dont know.....I really dont know.....I dont know about drugs nor divorce.......This is just my opinion......Im thinking the kids that she left specially the 8 months baby.

It's Sunday

It's Sunday and it's church day.I attend mass on Sunday night at the catholic church with my hubby and sunday morning at the Methodist with my hubby. You know why?Im a roman catholic since birth and it's too hard for me to change religion.Since religion is no problem between me and my hubby we decide that he will go with me on saturday night and sunday morning I go with him. At the Methodist Church Im in the worship committee where my husband is the head committee and I do the computer (overhead) slides at the church if nobody will do it.Meaning, an alternate a substitute.This morning nobody is in there....as in nobody.....Aaron the secretary was not there to run the computer she's sick.Daniel the teenager was not there he went to another group for a camp.HEather was not there too.....she had a flight in Libya..shes a flight stewardess.But I seen her during the sunday school.When the service starts I seen nobody setting in the computer.So, I did it.The preacher drive me crazy. The service was too long because they have a recogniton for the Day CAre Teachers and sunday school teachers. Why the preacher drive me crazy? because of the slide program....Im not complaining but having on the computer and not following the bulletin is not easy.And he did not mention to me about his service.I thought he already download in the computer but he did not.So I download while he is reading the gospel.Im glad the computer is in good mood too,sometimes it turn it off. Anyway, the service is good.

Dont Let History Repeat Itself

Everybody makes mistakes and nobody is perfect.But no matter how many ways you find to avoid them, some problems do hit head-on.And sometimes you will make mistakes in how you handle them. The key is to learn from your mistakes and vow not to make the same errors again. that way, as you deal with the consequences of your blunder, you can keep saying to yourself "at least when this is all over,I'll never have to go through that again." Learn from your mistakes!

What the Doctor say

My husband have an appoinment to the Doctor today. I did not go with him because Alice have a dizzy spell this morning due to her new medicine. So, I stay with the Webster.I dont like my husband going without me because he will tell the Doctor what he want.When he come home I ask him what the doctor say he said his uric acid went up to 23% which is good.He been almost start doing his kidney dialysis but thanks to GOD. Still his triglycerides still high. Sometimes he dont tell me what the Doctor say 'coz he dont want me to be worry.I was scared lat year when his kidne went to 18%.The reanl suggest to my hubby to start dialyses.But my husband just ignore it.He said Im not yet that bad.Triglycerides are the chemical form in which most fat exist in food as well as in the body. They are also present in blood plasma.

Stick your fingers in your ears

Okay, we dont mean literally stick your fingers in your ears. We mean no more eavesdropping! When you overhear snippers of a conversation, you are liable to misunderstand the gist of what is being said. Suppose you hear two of your friends talking about a great party friday night. Aparty you haven't beeninvited to. You are likely to feel hurt, left out, lonely and frustrated. Of course, you missed the beginning of the conversation....the party is a surprise.......for you!

Say Cheese

No matter how gray the day, put a sunny smile on your face. Your brain will begin to believ taht you're happy. Don't believe us? Give it try. It's a scientific fact that using the power of suggestion(in this case a smile) will help convince yourself that you really are happy. ANd before long, that smile will be the genuine article! If that's not good enough reason to grin, think of it this way.Smiling is relaxing. Your face uses far fewer muscles to smile than it does to frown.
