Alfonso Fanjul

One of the names that are famous and successful in his business and career is Alfonso Fanjul. With Florida Cyrstals, indefinable success Alfonso Fanjul is a man to look for. He received and honorary doctorate degree at Fordham University. He was the former Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Fanjul Corporation. He started his career in early period of 1950’s, in Cuba. Alfy Fanjul, also known as Alfonso Fanjul, established a small company which later known as Fanjul Corporation. Reading his accomplishment made me think how a man could do it. I bet he has a lot of determination and will power to make his dreams come true and it did! What a very good inspiration to follow.

For You!

Let the beauty we love become the good we do.

Do you have a pet?  Do you feel sad if your pet is also sick? I do! My nephew and nieces had a dog-called Abby, they have two bunnies, and they call them Tom and Jerry, lol! They so love their pet when one times it get sick.  Abby will not eat as well as Tom and Jerry. My brother asked the family members what might be the reason. They concluded that they might eat something. Off they go to the Veterinarian, the dog and bunnies have given a medicine, and the veterinarian checks them. When I know what happened I told my brother to check PetCareRx to see if it would help him find some of the medicine. Later on that day he texted me telling me he did find the medicine through PetCareRx. What an amazing find he told me because he could not find the med locally. Now he remembers the website and bookmarks it in his computer.

Valentine & Kebartas

Do any of you think about how and why a third party or a collection agency has to know your phone number or address?  Well I guess because there is an industry for these. I know of  Valentine & Kebartasas a third party collection agency. Their goal is to help with an utmost care to their clients. Where can you find a third party collection agency that had this goal? I think that is why Valentine & Kebartas are still here doing there business. In addition, every business who deals customers who are hard to collect their dues has to look and go for Valentine & Kebartas because it is worth the time.

Lia Sophia

I love jewelries. I know not all women love jewelries but I guess it is 95% love jewelries though. When I arrive here in the US, I found one jewelry line that amazes me and that is Lia Sophia. A friend mine wore it from a party. I asked her where she gets those jewelries she said she sold it. It does not take look for her to gather a bunch of friends because the next week she invites us to go to her house and have a Lia Sophia party. My jaw drop when I saw all the jewelries. It does not take me long to like them and try to choose which one I would buy. At the end, I bought two jewelries from the party, which until now I am still using.

Pepe Fanjul Jr.

I have been reading many articles recently, another Fanjul first name came out, and the name is Pepe Fanjul Jr.. He is the Florida Crystals’ Senior Vice President and head of the company’s land and real estate division. I am reading the article and at the same time thinking how fortunate this family are. They have business everywhere and they are good people. They like to share what they have. In addition, on their business life they are very successful they are co-investment partner in real estate private equity. I further read the article and it says Pepe Fanjul Jr., holds a B.S. Business Administration and an MBA in International Management from the University of Miami.

Mini Orchid

                                I was at the grocery store the other day and I found this mini-orchid. I have not seen mini-orchid and I find it very cute so I bought one. It has a very pretty color and when I bought the flower it's blooming just so wish it will bloom forever and won't die, cross my finger!

Gaston Castens

I like browsing in the internet sometimes you stumbled articles that you do not know about. The other day  I was browsing the state of Florida because we here in Michigan is already experiencing bitter cold and the sound of Florida is a music of our ears.  Then I found this site of Florida House of Representatives and it is the picture of Gaston Cantens. I do not know him but he is the Representative of District 114. I like reading biographical information of people and I read his biographical Gaston Cantens is a lawyer, a resident in Miami has three children and married to his wife Ana. He got his education from University of Miami and St Thomas University School of Law.  He was born October 24 in Miami, Florida. In addition, he is a Catholic and is interested in biking and jogging. For me this simple stuff could tell a person. However, if you are a voter you should know more of the person’s capacities, abilities and his sponsored bills, right? For me there is nothing wrong in knowing more of your representative it is everyone’s responsibility.

Pepe Fanjul

Some people are born to be lucky and as I am reading about Pepe Fanjul article just recently he is one kind of a man who I like to call fortunate in life. Somehow many says life is not fair well it sounds right but Pepe Fanjul a midst his being the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, President, and Chief Operating Officer of Fanjul Corporation and it’s subsidiary Florida Crystals Corporation, he take time to be a philanthropist. It takes a heart and being a real man to donate his time and resources to not for profit organizations like New Hope Charities, which helps children and families in rural communities.  Pepe Fanjul is one of a kind.

Christopher Mallick

If you love suspense thriller movie then you are familiar with Oxymoron Entertainment. Christopher Mallick is the CEO of Oxymoron entertainment. I love reading peoples biography because it made me inspired to strive hard on what I do. Like Christopher Mallick, he did not start with the film industry but did some billing services, which is one of the internet’s first third party billing services.  Mallick has established himself as a creative force among the top producers in the entertainment industry. He is the founder and owner of one of Hollywood’s most modern and inventive production companies, Oxymoron Entertainment, which launched in 2006. As a person who has the drive to make it big Mallick will go far in this kind of industry his drive and determination is fascinating and I so like his film.

Gary Pryor

Gary’s extensive experience is in Wall Street, which began with Merrill Lynch International and the Morgan Guaranty Trust Company of New York. During his tenure at Morgan, he completed training in advanced accounting, credit analysis and corporate finance, and proved his skills in Morgan’s fixed income securities department where he managed clients such as Paccar, Boeing, University of California Schools and Van Munching.  I am always amazed of people like Gary Pryor who could reach the highest educational attainment and success in their career. It is always very inspiring to read and hear a story like Gary Pryor. With what is going on in our surrounding we need people like this story who could inspire us to work hard and study hard.

Blue Sky & The Bird

Love isn't finding a perfect person. It's seeing an imperfect person perfectly.  - Sam Keen

 Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor: hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out. - Hafiz of Persia

                        These photos were taken this morning. I heard this bird singing his heart out. Maybe he is singing for his love one? Or he might be looking for someone he could possibly spend spring and summer, ^_^ Your guess is as good as mine!

There is always something left to love. And if you ain't learned that, you ain't learned nothing.

Gadgets For You

Are you the kind of person whose interest is to look what is the latest in the market? I know of someone who is crazy for gadgets. In fact, every year he has this list of gadgets that he wants to see and if he likes he will buy. I just found out a Geek Gadgets 2012 is available for everyone to see. I like so many things and I could not believe how technology expanded so fast my brain could not even keep up.  I talk to this friend the other day and he said he had again another toy. He orders it online and he is happy if it will arrive. I laugh and told him eventually he will be full of gadgets his house will explode.
However, he and his girlfriend like to read too. I share him AbeBooks coupons and Amazon promotional codes the other day. He was happy because it was his first time to do couponing I know he will love it as his girlfriend did when I give her something too. Many people want to save and many do not know how to look for coupons. There are many coupons in the internet that we could find but to look for a specific coupon is hard to find. I do love coupons because I love to save. What about you do you like to save? Get coupons and you will see how good it feels if you save a lot!

Together Forever!

                     I have been waiting and lurking for awhile to see my goldfinches. My first time I saw my goldfinches was last Friday. After that day I have not seen them. Yesterday, I catch them together forever hanging the tiny bird feeder. It was windy and I could hardly focus them at the same time I am behind the window too. The first photo looks a bit foggy but the second one is fine. Even birds can be together forever!! ^_^

Sky Watch Friday

However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.
- Henry David Thoreau

As we live and as we are, Simplicity -- with a capital "S" -- is difficult to comprehend nowadays. We are no longer truly simple. We no longer live in simple terms or places. Life is a complex struggle now. It is now valiant to be simple: a courageous thing to even want to be simple. It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means.
- Frank Lloyd Wright

   How about you? How simple your life is? Or do you try to live a simpler life? What exactly is simple life?

Here Comes Scotts®

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring has sprung and here in Michigan we have a different kind of weather. Sometimes it gets warm as high as 80F and all of a sudden, it goes down to below freezing! That makes people confuse and so the plants and trees. However, what I like here in Michigan is that every season people are excited to enjoy it. Just like last weekend when the temperature went off to almost 70F people flock to leading stores who sells plants, soil, outdoor furniture, insecticide for the trees. In other words, people like to be ready for spring and summer. 
While hubby and I were also wondering around the store, I saw Scotts® Snap® Spreader System a system that can take care of itself. Instead, Scotts® Snap® Spreader System is the one who take care of us. Hubby was curious too. Remember we have front yard and backyard that in due time it will be cover with dandelions. We look at the system on how it will work and read functions. Here is some of the good point of Scotts® Snap® Spreader System.
- No mess, no guess spreader system
- The Snap Pac connects directly to the Snap Spreader - no cutting, no opening and no pouring from heavy bags - no spilling or waste! The system auto-sets the proper flow rate. No spreader settings required! It also has a unique EdgeGuard feature that keeps product where you want it…on the lawn!
- When you’re done, the Snap Pac self-seals upon removal making it easy to store - No more half empty bags on the garage floor.
With all these good points stated above. I cannot think of any system that does the same thing that Scotts® Snap® Spreader System do. Hubby gets excited of what he reads too and he bought one. Then I went online to see more of this system. I found out that Scotts® Snap Spreader System has a PERKS Program. Who do not like PERKS? Well Scott’s Snap PERKS Program begins last March 7, 2012. You go to Facebook and “LIKE” Snap perks on Facebook for a chance to win amazing prizes! At the same time you will be updated to there great promotions and contests.

Love Tea

What do I know about tea is that it is good for our body. It come from different plants that people could find in there garden. Some people had to plant for a particular plant just to get a good tea. Some plant it for the reason of selling it as a tea. Like me, I only go to the store or online to buy tea. I love tea and I guess many of us can agree to that. Every time I go to a store, I always pass the isle where the tea is being display. In addition, more often than not I end up buying one box of tea. In my pantry, I have several kinds of tea it comes from different brand and plants.
This afternoon, while having dinner at my stepdaughter’s house for Easter she serves us good tea. She asks me what kind of tea I want and I told her if she had loose-leaf tea that would be very nice. She goes back to her pantry and there it is a loose-leaf tea! I am very impress of her tea collection she has everything. After dinner, we were setting at the living room still sipping a good tea. I did not hesitate to ask where she bought the tea because I know I could not find some of her teas in the grocery. She told me that she found this British store online I look at it immediately and yes, there it is British foods with teas and all kinds of food. I browse the website and I am loved what I see. Food and tea in one online site that is awesome for me and I am browsing more because I intend to buy many of there stuff!


This is my last flower this year of 2019. It is huge, bigger than my face. I am thinking of getting more of this kind since it is really p...
