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.

You Should Consider Hiring a Bankruptcy Lawyer

Are you in a situation where you have creditors demanding their money, but you don't have enough money to give them? Are you afraid to answer the phone because it could be creditors calling you and demanding their money? Your money troubles aren't just going to go away, so you need to act and get these problems resolved. In some cases, your money problems can be eliminated by simply working a few extra shifts. Some money troubles, however, are just too big for you to solve and bankruptcy is likely your only option left. If this is the case for you, and you live in the Columbia, SC area, you should consider hiring a bankruptcy lawyer in Columbia as soon as possible.

Is a Lawyer Necessary?

You do not need to have a lawyer with you when you file for bankruptcy, but it is a really good idea. When you file, any mistakes you make, even if they are seemingly small, can have huge ramifications and derail your bankruptcy plans. Your lawyer will go through the paperwork with you and make sure that you have done everything correctly. In addition, there will likely be a hearing that you must attend in which your creditors and their lawyers will do everything they can to still get their money. If you don't have a lawyer with you, you are at a huge disadvantage.

The Best Lawyers



A lot of lawyers will tell you that they can help you with your bankruptcy case, so it is your job to find one that is right for you. The best bankruptcy lawyers are those who have experience actually helping people go through the process. These lawyers might also work for a prestigious law firm with other lawyers who can help them, if needs be. These lawyers should also have a history of getting their clients results. Go online and see what former clients have said about how the lawyer did with their case. Once you have found a bankruptcy lawyer in Columbia, SC that you feel can help you, let them use their expertise for your case.

In Being Broken and Becoming Whole Again...

2 Corinthians 11:30 (64 kb)

I do not know if I should consider myself as a strong person. All I know is that I am now in the middle of the lake almost drowning but yet I am still holding on. I am holding on to the fact that God still holds my hand in spite and despite of everything.

I just hope that aside from gripping my hand, may God strengthen my soul especially now that I am totally depressed.

Do You Know the History of Your Triumph Motorcycle?


The first gas-powered motorcycle was created by Gottlieb Daimler in about 1885. Since then, the motorcycle has evolved into the ride you recognize today. One of the companies that have been there almost from the beginning is Triumph Motorcycles. How much of the history of your Triumph in Charlotte do you know?
 Triumph Beginnings

A German man named Siegfried Bettmann arrived in Coventry, England in the 1880s, and shortly after his arrival he began the S. Bettmann & Co. Import and Export Agency in London. With this company, which he would rename the Triumph Cycle Company in 1886, Bettmann would sell bicycles created by other businesses. When a German engineer by the name of Schulte was introduced into the company, he would help Bettmann begin actual manufacturing of bicycles. In 1902, Triumph produced their first motorcycle, known as No. 1, using a bicycle frame with a 2.2 hp Minerva engine. The company would continue producing bicycles and motorcycles, and would supply over 30,000 Model H Roadsters to allied troops in WWI. This motorcycle would come to be known as the Trusty Triumph, and is often regarded as the first modern motorcycle. In 1919, Schulte would leave the company, wishing to begin automobile production, but finding little support from Bettmann.


Automobiles and More

The new partner to Triumph, Colonel Claude V. Holbrook, would also show an interest in automobile production, and in the 1920s, automobile production would begin. The Super Seven would prove to be a popular Triumph vehicle. Bettmann would retire in 1933, shortly after the bicycle manufacturing portion of the company was sold. Facing financial trouble, the automobile and motorcycle portions of the operation would split in 1936. Jack Sangster would acquire the motorcycle side of things, and began exporting to the United States. In 1940, Triumph would begin production for WWII, selling over 50,000 motorcycles to the military over the course of the war.


Popularity and Longevity

In the United States, celebrities would bring fame to the Triumph motorcycles, with Marlon Brando riding a 1950 Thunderbird in the 1953 movie, “The Wild One,” Bud Elkins and Steve McQueen riding a TR6 650 Trophy in “The Great Escape” in 1963, and EvelKnievel performing stunts on a T-120 Bonneville and 650 Bonneville, such as his jump over the fountain at Caesar’s Palace Casino in Las Vegas. In 1959, the T-120 Bonneville 650 would become the highest selling British twin of all time. In the 1980s, Triumph would again face financial trouble, but would be purchased by John Bloor in 1983, confirming that Triumph would be the largest and longest running British motorcycle manufacturer, and to be considered by many as the longest running motorcycle company in the world. Today, you can still find a Triumph in Charlottesville and across the United States and around the world, with models such as the iconic Bonneville, the Daytona, Rocket III, and many more still in production.

Flight MH370- Still Missing

We have heard about crashed plane incidents yet Flight MH370's case is different because the exact location of its debris is still a mystery. After three days since the report shocked the whole world, still it is missing. What could have happen to the passengers of the missing plane? It has been presumed that 2/3 of the total number of passengers could have died.

There are speculations that a terrorist attack caused the plane's mishap, others thought it could be a hi-jack case. Whatever causes such tragedy, wish there are still survivors. 

Let us pray that it will be found soon.

NO ONE Is Perfect!



Sometimes in our lives, we can easily pinpoint the bad side of a person and we tend to ignore them fearing that we might be influence by them. And I admit, I am one of them.

I tend to judge a person so easily. If I learned that he is not doing good with his life, I choose not to befriend him.

But the message above brought me to one great realization: NO ONE IS PERFECT, not even me!

I realized that in as much as I dislike a person for his unbecoming attitude, me too can be that kind of person- having an unbecoming attitude.

Reality bites...

It is easier to find good people and it is easiest to leave the bad ones...

BUT

It is quite harder to find the good in people and ignore the bad in them because of our prejudice attitude.

However, when we are facing this kind of dilemma, let us remember how much God loves us that He saved us in spite of all our inequities.

I know it is easier said than done, but let us not forget that the kind of life we spent here on earth will determine our final destination.

We can be a vehicle of change for other people.

So the next time we find that something is wrong with them, let us approach them with love and gently correct them and accept their total being. Then let us hope and pray that other people will do the same for us. We can never realize our mistakes unless others will correct us.

Just saying.

What 'The Motorcycle Helmet Laws' Should Provide?

Vehicular accidents involving motorcycles are very rampant nowadays. In most cases, victims are either get killed or badly injured. The Motorcycle Helmet Laws has been strongly imposed in most countries. However, in country like United States of America, not all states imposed the said law. Other states also opt to impose it partially. 

The Motorcycle Helmet Laws aimed nothing other than the protection of the motorcyclist. However, some motorcycle owners are so stubborn that they neglect the use of helmet despite the fact that helmet is given free upon purchase of motorcycles. 




legalvideos.co

The law must include on its provision the standard helmet that should be issued by motorcycle dealers. All helmet should pass the quality inspection. It must be the kind of helmet that can really protect when accident cannot be avoided. Like the saying that goes, 'an ounce of protection is better than a pounds of cure', the approved helmet should be durable enough and not just a kind of helmet that will easily break when an impact occurs. And maybe, all motorcyclist have the right to complain against any motorcycle dealers who issued sub-standard kind of helmet when necessary.

My Scrap Book: A Work In Progress

One of my favorite past time is making a scrap book. It is through this activity that I can showcase my creativity. I love to sketch, doodle, make a collage and most of all cut letters and photos. I want my scrap book to be personalized as much as possible so I only uses my own pictures. Right now, I am still working on my family scrap book. Actually, I started doing it two years ago. Most of the contents there are all about me and my hubby and our wedding memorabilia. Since we already have two babies, I plan to include them to make it a family portfolio.

a page on my scrap book
In making  a scrap book, it may involve a lot of printing activities. Like in my cases, most of our family pictures are saved on my social media account and I don't have a had copy of it. I have known that there are online sites that cater local printing which will lighten up my load in printing concerns. Making scrap book is a lot of fun. However, I am the moody type and I can only work on my scrap book when I am in the mood that is why until now it is still a work in progress. How I wish I could finish it so I could start a new one featuring the progress and development of my babies.

The Importance of Cloud Storage

 
At first I really do not know how it was called. I encountered the term 'clod storage' before but I never thought that it refers to Google Drive and other sites which enable you to save your files. Aside from Google Drive, I could also highly recommend Dropbox. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I am so satisfied with it. Though I only have limited storage memory but I can still recommend it to everyone. Right now, all my important files, pictures were saved on my dropbox account. One good thing about it also is that it automatically sync to your other gadget as long as it was installed like on your mobile smart phones or tablets.

Looking Hot With Sexy Lingerie


I just had a talk with my COT student who is getting married this summer. I gave her some tips on the preparation considering my experience  more than two years ago. She's quite nervous but thankful because of the all-out support she's been receiving from her family as well as the family of her husband-to-be. I teased her by asking if she would love to receive sexy lingerie as a gift she just laugh and gave no further comment. Kidding aside, there are affordable sexy clothing and lingerie that we can find in the market or even through online shops.


Online shopping is more convenient and gives you more options to choose from. The mode of payment is also flexible thus online business becomes more popular right now.

Anti-Jaywalking Ordinance Finally Implemented in CDO

Ignorance of the law excuses no one. 

I am so glad that finally the city has implemented its on and off ordinance  against jaywalking. For those who violate the said ordinance will have a penalty fee of Php500.00. Hit and run incidence are sometimes caused by jaywalking. Every pedestrian is responsible to abide the law otherwise he has to pay the said amount. I just hope the said ordinance will take effect to all area and not just in one particular place.

Dance to the Beat of Cajon


Are you familiar with cajon drums? At first, I thought it was just an ordinary drum but when a friend of mine started beating the cajon skillfully with his hands, wow it is simply amazing! The first time I encountered this instrument, I thought it was just a simple box intended for storage but my hubby told me it, indeed, was a musical instrument. I was even amused when he called it cajon because in our native dialect, cajon means box. I love the beat of cajon because it is not annoying to hear. My hubby told me that most tribal band uses cajon hand drum. I salute those who can play it skillfully. I love to dance to the beat of cajon!

Dangling Ideas, Random Thoughts

I admit, I am a Mom with a hint of fashion sense but not at all times. There are days when I love wearing dangling accessories, but most of the time I just wear my favorite vintage watch and that's all. When I was still single,I spent an ample amount of time in fixing myself before going to my destination. But those days were gone.

If there are dangling accessories, there are also dangling ideas. These are ideas that just pop into your mind but won't linger. I have so many dangling or random ideas in my mind that can be a good subject to blog yet because I neglected to wrote it down, it simply vanish. I am always like that. Ideas keep pouring in but I was unable to express it. Just like the other day, I have a conversation with my hubby then suddenly an idea came in. However, it disappear as fast as it came. Another lesson for me.

There are lots of topic like current events that we can blog about however, any topic that is extracted from random thoughts can be juicier.
