Welcome to WATER WORLD WEDNESDAY
                                                                        Episode 22, Year 1


These photos were taken last fall. As we all know it is only the state of Michigan that is surrounded with a huge body of water. There were three huge lake that surrounded Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. In my native country Philippines Lake is not famous we have river but it is not huge and we are surrounded with sea and ocean. The first time I saw Lake Huron and Lake Michigan I couldn’t believe and my mind couldn’t accept that what I am seeing is a Lake. It has waves, I found out there are shipwrecked that happened moons ago, small boat and huge cargo ship is sailing too. Here are some photos that I took at Port Huron.

        I would like to see your water image. Take time to visit our friend bloggers and leave comment.

Restless Heart

Image
Synopsis RESTLESS HEART uses a historic backdrop to tell the true story of Augustine of Hippo – one of the Catholic Church’s most beloved and well-known Saints. Its message is as timely today as it was only a few generations after Jesus walked on Earth. It is the story of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass – and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman world and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what became Europe.
Filmed in Europe, this new epic film is the first full-length feature movie about St. Augustine.

The Story


In 430 AD, in the besieged city of Hippo, the 70-year-old Bishop Augustine told Jovinus, a captain of the Roman guards, the story of how his Christian mother, Monica, saved him.
As a youngster in Roman North Africa, Augustine witnessed the persuasive effectiveness of the orator Microbius, whose lynchpin for any argument was, “These are facts…not words.” Augustine fell …

Something Red

Everything is in bloom and summer is almost over. I take notice of the colors that are most prominent in my garden. I found the shade of red, yellow, pink and purple are the most common in my flower garden and how I am always delighted to take photos of them. Here are some of my flowers that has red shade of color.

Weekend Sky

Saturday hubby and I went to visit Fr. Solanus Casey Center in Detroit. The sky is gloomy and cloudy...


After the visit we went to Greektown in Detroit walk around and finally found a Greek restaurant.


Sunday, after attending mass hubby and I went to the thumb part of Michigan. Our plan is to see the 150 miles yard sale but ended up just driving around the water and it was fun. 
                                            A huge factory and see the sky awesome in blue!

                                At St. Claire township a park along the river. Across the river is Canada.

                                                                  Love this lighthouse.

As we are heading home I look up and saw this beautiful form of clouds. Looks like the gateway of heaven. What do you think?

Will On The Water

Last Sunday hubby and I went for a drive. Our goal is to see a 150 miles yard sale located at the north east part of Michigan. As we came near  to the two Michigan roads (M-25 and M-29) we do not know where to go I decided to go south and that is M-29. We followed the road and we came to a town that is having a Shakespeare Festival. It was very cool watching the plays and watching the people dressed up like in the medieval era. We had so much fun that day and yes I ate smoke turkey leg! ^_^


                We stayed on this tent for a while the music coming is really fantastic and she played well.
                                                                         See the water?

Tankless Water Heater

Image
Last March hubby and I went to visit his relatives in Texas. It was my third time to visit Texas and the first time I notice there, they do not have basements. I do not know if some of the houses do have basements there but many that I know of do not have one. Unlike here in Michigan, most of the houses do have basements.  I do not know before about what is in the basement I just thought it is an additional part of the. A part of the house that family could be together to watch movie or do games. However, I found out that in the basements it is where all the electric and water plumbing system are located. Water heater tanks are also there and many things that make the house function well. In Texas, it is quite different since they do not have basements they have rooms for those system. In my native country Philippines, we have tank less water heater because we also do not have basement in our house.
Many do not know the benefits of a Tankless Water Heater and here are the few:

Dodge State Park

They said just a matter of ten miles you can find lake in Michigan and I bet that is true. Summer is fun here in Michigan because people spend a lot of time at the lake, may it be a private own or state park. Last weekend we went to Dodge State Park and I am amazed how huge this lake is. While we were there rain is trying to pour on us but the wind is much stronger the cloudy and gloomy sky is moved by the wind. It was a cool Saturday afternoon it is windy the water is rough but the party with friends and the food is great!

Grease Traps

I am thankful that hubby is working at our kitchen today even if it is too hot outside.  I was complaining for quite sometime about our drainage from our kitchen sink it is been plugged up for more than three months and sometimes I noticed it smells bad. Together with his friend, they check up all the possible causes and are still working it now. I am also guilty why our sink plugged up because I throw oil in it. Sometimes I throw peels from anything now I know it should not be.      I was talking to a friend of mine this morning and told her about what my hubby is getting busy today. She said sometimes it takes a lot of money to fix the problem I told her I hope not. I do hope hubby could fix it because money is tight these days. I was browsing the internet, saw this copper products, and while reading what it means my eyes get big because it is about grease interceptors. I think every household and who ever is cooking in the kitchen we cannot deny that somehow we throw cooking …
