Looking Up

My Daisies are blooming now and this morning I had a chance to take photos shooting up. The temperature here in MI is awesome!

Is this a butterfly?

I do not know if this is a butterfly or moth. I would appreciate it if somebody could tell me the name of this pretty creature. We found this creature flip flopping looks like it is about to die. My nieces and nephew ran towards this creature and thought it is only a leaf but it was not, it looks like though. So I took shots and pick it up did not know all this yellow is like a dust. It's my first time to see this one hope I would know the name of it.

It just so happened  that this year I have many American goldfinches on my feeder. I saw tiny ones and some has vibrant colors some don't. I like watching them because they wait when somebody is eating on the feeder. They never shove each other they take time. And that is when I had the chance to take shots with them.

Bob Beck

Do you find hard to sale something? Moreover, do you know some people who could not sale any stuff anywhere and any time? My Dad is a very good sales representative as well as my sister. My brother and me are shy to sale anything. In this generation, already a sales guru like Bob Beck Sales Expert is willing to train people. For me it is a great investment to take this kind of training. As many people know, Bob Beck Sales Expert is the person who could do the magic on you. For the fact that he has given a title expert that means, he is good in training people like me who are shy. I learn too that to have a sales training is an addition to a skill that many do not have. That I think for me I would try to invest in this training because it will boost my self-confidence as well as my self-esteem.

I just came from a month long vacation in the Philippines and before I came back here in the US, my nieces and nephew are busy preparing for school. They tell me they love school and they are excited to be back to school. I also excited just by watching them arrange there stuff to there bag and we had fun shopping for there school supplies and other stuff needed for the whole year. My hubby told me it is a good sign if kids get excited going back to school. That means they love it!
I remember when I was also in school I get excited because everything is new. However, when you meet your teacher you get scared sometimes and sometimes, you get inspired. I was in college when term papers and research papers are required to pass right away. It is hard to write term papers or research papers without giving ample time to a certain topic. One time our English teacher told us to choose any topic, that time there was an issue in our hometown about hoarding, and that was my topic. My teacher accepted my paper but many of my classmates did not finished there’s. Right now I found out that you can ask for help through online by going this site which when I look at it I could say it is the best thing that ever happen in this generation. If only in my time we have this site, I would have high grades higher than what I had before. But past is past what is important right now is today and since I know this site I told my nieces and nephew and some relatives to check it out if they happen to have difficulties in there term papers or research papers. A little help does not hurt anybody I know kids do love high grades and who does not.

An online furniture store

I did not know that even furniture you can buy it online because I thought buying online is for small items only. I was browsing the internet today and I found Max Furniture website. I so love there furniture and I so happen to learn that they are one of the original internet-based furniture retailers and it has been in business since 1999 and is based in Dallas, Texas. I do love to read reviews that is why when I read Max Furniture Reviews I get curious what the could offer to there customers. So I went to there website and as I expected there furniture’s are so gorgeous. Everything is great looking and they have coupons and special offers too. This morning I was so glad to read Max Furniture reviews because without it I do not have any idea on what to look for in buying dining room furniture. So friends look and find out what you like in there website.

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.


One of the first things that I notice when I travel all over the country is the sign along the road. Some are huge and fancy, some are simple and some are colorful and with lights. Before I know the name of Signtronix , I ask myself where these companies buy this huge signs or signage. I am impressed that they could make very good graphics some has even lights on them. This morning I was browsing in the internet and happen to read the word Signtronix I get curious.  I read the article and thankfully, I had my questions answered. Signtronix is the nation’s manufacturer of business signage for independent business owners. Now I know to who and where to find a great signage just in case one of my friends would someday use signage for their business. 

Valentine & Kebartas

I was browsing the internet and found read this profile Valentine & Kebartas. I was curious I read. I found out that Valentine & Kebartas is a third party collection agency. I thought of myself that is cool. I have not known any collection agency but now I do. I continue to read, I found out that Cheryl Valentine, and Bob Kerbartas found it in 1994. They are involved in bankcard, retail, telecommunications, education, utilities, commercial leasing, and insurance and government sectors. Valentine & Kebartas, Inc. allows clients to achieve collection objectives and earn a higher netback by individually tailoring its services. Reading how this company operates and stick to their goals made me think that founding a business and make it successful is like taking care of a family too. How you raise a family by taking care of all the members is like in the business too.  A great information I have read here and hope you all look at there website too.
