Family Reunion

I miss posting my blog.Me and my husband been busy for our family reunion this coming Thursday Juy 17-20 at the Girl Scout Camp,Rogersville Alabama. I love this reunion specially my hubby,that's why we dont want to be missed.This is my 3rd yr been going this reunion....If you are talking about live & silent auction this reunion have their own auction.This auction is for the family reunion funds (My husband's mother side).Swimming,playing all kinds of games,canoe etc.lots and lots of fun. I dont know what a Canoe before? A canoe basically is tiny slender boat, characteristically human-powered, but also normally sailed. Canoes are usually pointed at both the sides and are normally open on top, though it can be covered.In its human-powered version, the canoe is pushed forward with help of paddles, and the number of paddles depending on the dimension of the canoe. Paddlers usually face in the path of the travel, moreover settled on support in the hull, or kneeling directly on the hull. In this manner paddling a canoe can be compared with rowing, where the rowers usually face towards the opposite direction of travel.Anyway all I know is the so called "BANGKA" in the Philippines ha ha ha...

We are leaving tonight.It's a long trip.My hubby already take long nap since this morning.ANd Im getting ready too,to take my nap. After the family reunion,tuesday morning we are leaving for illinios.My friends keep us in your prayer. Need to take my nap now,take a rest for tonight's long drive.

Miss Universe 2008

Our very own Ms.Philippines 2008,Jennifer Barrientos


Miss Venezuela was crowned Miss Universe 2008 last night in a contest marked by the spectacle of Miss USA falling down during the evening gown competition for the second year in a row.

The new Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza, was once kidnapped in her homeland and says the experience taught her to remain poised under pressure.

Mendoza, 22, is a 5-foot, 10-inch (178-centimeter), green-eyed beauty who enjoys learning languages and photography. She appeared at the news conference in the flowing yellow dress and dangling turquoise earrings that she wore during the evening gown competition in which Stewart took her spill.

Every day is the best day

It's saturday and every day is the best day for me. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. No man has learned anything nightly until he knows that everyday is dooms day. Today is a king in disguise. Today always looks mean to the thoughtfulness in the face of a uniform experience that all good and great and happy actions are made up precisely of these blank todays. Let us not be so deceived, let us unmask the king as he passess! He only is rich who owns the day and no one owns the day who allows it to be invaded with worry and anxiety. YOu have done what you could.Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in forget them as soon as you can. TOmorrow is a new day. Begin it.... and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair.It is too dear with it's hopes and invitations to waste a moment of the yesterdays.

Independence Day in America

In the United States, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Congress approved the wording of the Declaration on July 4 and then sent it to the printer. Whether John Hancock, as the elected President of the Second Continental Congress, or anyone else signed the document that day is unknown, because that document has been lost — presumably destroyed in the printing process.[1] Hancock's name and that of a witness do appear on the typeset broadside that was published within a few days. On August 2 in the following month, an engrossed document in script form[2] was signed by Hancock and other delegates.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, picnics, baseball games, and various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States, but is often also viewed as simply a summer festival, apart from its patriotic overtones.

Mental Health Myths

People get depresses because bad things happen to them. Depression has physical roots in the brain, so some people develop it because of a change in brain chemistry. Others may experience a negative life event (like a divorce or death) that triggers severe depression but it's not the cause. It's normal to feel down for a little while when bad things happen but 90 percent of people bounce back after about a year. THose who stay down are likely genetically predisposed to depression.
