Ipe Wood: The Best Decking Material?

Ipe decking

Unlike some of the other home additions, an outdoor deck actually increases the value of the property. Not only does an outdoor deck expand the available living space of a home, but it also provides a very useable storage area. While a deck can be constructed using a variety of different materials, Ipe wood has been proven to be one of the best. Here are some of the amazing benefits of Ipe wood. 

Resistance to insects
Ants, bees, and termites can wreck havoc on a deck. The hardiness of Ipe wood makes it resistant to a variety of pests. 

Ipe wood is designed to last for many years to come. As a testament to its long-term durability, some companies provide a 25-year warranty on all installations of Ipe wood. Even in extreme environments, Premium Ipe Decking is able to withstand the harsh elements of nature. 

Although it is always a good idea to keep an outdoor deck clean, Ipe wood requires a minimum amount of maintenance. 

Does not absorb heat
Unlike the typical deck materials, ipe wood does not absorb heat. The coolness of Ipe wood is especially beneficial when the summer weather begins to take its toll. 

Does not warp
Even after 20 years of use, Ipe wood is still able to retain its original shape. 

Ipe wood is derived from sustainable forests. This means that the harvesting of Ipe wood will not have a disastrous impact on the environment.

Successful Family Camp 2014

Hubby and I decided not to join the family camp for financial reason but God just doesn't want us to miss this great opportunity so He caused other people to help us.
We were with the Advance Party on the 16th to set the venue. Hubby, as usual, took care with the sound system. It was indeed a very fantastic experience. It was my Baby girl’s first travel so far. The weather is okay and really cold especially during early morning. It was also fun staying in a tent. My hubby’s team championed the basketball game and my baby girl was recognized as the youngest participant. The 3-days event was a huge success. Glory to God!

Looking forward to Summer Camp 2015!

Motorcycles: Experience the Adrenaline Rush

Much to your mother's dismay, you have always been an adrenaline junky. You were jumping your Big Wheel off the curb at age two, racing down stair rails on your skateboard at age ten, racing your muscle car at age 17, and now, you have just about given your mother the worst heart attack of all time. You have decided to purchase a motorcycle. Your mother has reminded you multiple times of the numerous visits to the emergency room for stitches, casts, and x-rays. You understand the risks involved with a motorcycle, and to save your mother from a visit of her own to the emergency room for tranquilizers, you have promised her that you will wear a helmet. Oh, and you have done careful research through Frontline Eurosports and other such high-quality motorcycle enthusiasts.

Up To $1500 off select BMW Motorcycles

Types of Motorcycles

There are so many types of motorcycles to choose from, and just like the automobile industry, everyone you talk to has their favorite. You seem to have grown attached to the BMW models. Some of the models you are leaning towards include the following:
  • Sport Models: These models are built to race, and boy do you like to race. Two of the sport models are BMW S 1000 RR and BMW HP4.
  • Roadster Models: These models look a little more like 'traditional' road-running motorcycles. You like the traditional look of this type of motorcycle. Two of the roadster models are BMW R 1200 R and BMW S 1000 R.


Once you finally decide on the specific model that you would like to invest in, you can then move on to purchase the all-important accessories that go along with your new ride. You can find the best selection of accessories at places such as Frontline Eurosports and other such high-quality establishments. Accessories such as your all-important helmet (or brain bucket, as your mother calls it), riding gloves, a nice leather jacket, and other leather accessories, will keep you safe as you experience the adrenaline rush that comes with riding a two-wheeled, engine-powered, beauty. It doesn't hurt that the accessories also make you look good too.

Cramming Cramming Cramming...

I am so crammed today, deadline for grade encoding is due today yet I cannot access my account online. Gone were the days where I can finish my grade computation ahead of time. Life is so different now if you have other concerns and priorities. One thing is for sure, I need to realign my priorities and must develop a good and effective time management.

Anyway, can somebody help me please?

Tape on the Floor

If you have ever wanted to mark off certain areas in the work place or even at home in the garage, then consider DuraStripe X-Treme tape. The tape comes in various colors to make it easier to divide areas into specific categories or locations. One of the best things about using the tape in a work place is that it can be placed on almost any kind of floor. Flooring doesn’t have to be level in order to lay the tape down. You can easily place the tape, and if it needs to be moved later on, all you have to do is pull it up to place it in a different position.

When you put the tape on the floor, you don’t have to worry about how hard it is to keep clean, the protectant coating makes it easy to sweep over the tape and even use a damp mop to clean the surface. This is an ideal product for dividing areas in the building where people should, or should not, walk. It can also be used to divide the work area into specific departments such as manufacturing or safety. The bright colors stand out on the floor so that employees can easily see the tape.

A Taste of Summer

I do not have any plan yet for summer vacation but for the last two days I got a taste of it. I was able to join a team that assist one of the Barangay here in Cagayan de Oro for their strategic planning. The two-day event was held at Duka Beach Resort in Medina. The last time that I was there, way back 2007, the place was not fully developed yet. But now it was totally different. I didn't get the opportunity to go deeper due to time constraint but I get to enjoy the beauty of nature.

If you are considering of a summer getaway, try Duka Beach Resort. It is so relaxing.
