One Sunday afternoon while I was bored, I was looking at my long nails with days old red nail polish. I thought of taking photos and holding a Christmas Ornament. You know, boredom makes me do weird things LOL. I always have long nails. It is easier to keep it clean. Believe it or not, I seldom wear nail polish. When I am bored I like to play with colors though.
Okay, while taking these photos, I was watching the news in Fox News Channel. They were showing a nativity with real people. This is their way of inviting Christians to not be afraid of greeting people with Merry Christmas. To not be afraid of bringing back the tradition of celebrating Christmas. It is time to quit being politically correct and enjoy Christmas the way it was supposed to be.
I was holding this ornament which says Merry Christmas and I thought, this is my way of showing I am not afraid to say Merry Christmas. I respect people who do not celebrate Christmas but, as a Christian, it is my right to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Have a Merry Christmas everyone.
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bright House Networks. All opinions are 100% mine.
Total entertainment while we are lounging at home is what we really need and Bright House Networks provided us with that awesome service. For almost 4 years now, we actually subscribed the whole package deal such as the Internet, phone line and cable, and so far; we are one of the satisfied customers of this company.
The BHTV I should say, is an amazing feature and the latest awesome service that Bright House Networks have for their customers. How amazing? How about watching a favorite show anywhere in the house? How would you like to watch TV in the kitchen or in the garden? That is truly possible!Bright House Networks TV or BHTV is both a free app and a Website so; by using this app, subscribers can view live HD programming anywhere in the house using the iPad as well as the iPhone and other Android gadgets. Take note that BHTV only works within the range of your home's wireless network. Meaning, I cannot use the BHTV in the mall even if I can access the Bright House WiFi Hotspot for it is only accessible with in the wireless network of my home. The photo below was taken at the back porch when I was using the BHTV awhile ago.
The BHTV app allows the customers to view many of the channels via iPad, iPhone and most of the Android devices so; waching TV is now very convenient. I use the BHTV via my iPad to watch my favorite channel while I do my gardening and when I am having my siesta time by the back porch. I also use the BHTV app in the garage area while I sort out the stored things in there.
Basically, I watch TV anywhere in the house using the BHTV app in my iPad. Eversince it started, I was using it for convenience. If you are a customer and haven't tried it yet, you should take advantage of this service now. Make Any Room a TV Room! Here is how to download the app and if you need more information, check it out at BHTV’s FAQ.
I am not afraid to speak and great someone with Merry Christmas. When they say Happy Holiday, I say Merry Christmas anyway. After all, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus. So; it's okay to say Merry Christmas. When I arrived here in the US, I was stunned to know that some establishments are afraid to put a Merry Christmas sign for fear of getting sued. It did happen though. There was a city hall, slapped with a lawsuit because they decorated the city hall with Christmas tree and Nativity. A sign of Merry Christmas is not allowed in public places because some politically correct people will get offended.
Too much Political correctness in this generation especially here in the US. For those who do not celebrate Christmas, we should respect them but, no one can dictate us how to greet someone and how to celebrate Christmas. It is their right not to celebrate Christmas. It is our right to celebrate Christmas as well. Let us bring back the tradition of the USA where children can sing a Christmas carol in the school; where family can enjoy their family tradition of putting Christmas tree and Christmas lights in their front yard freely without the interruption of the homeowners association. Celebrating Christmas is all about love, being kind to people, sharing what you have and having fun with your family and friends. If you see a Grinch this Christmas, say Merry Christmas anyway. Have a Wonderful Christmas everyone!

When we visited Missouri last year, hubby and I enjoyed our road trip. We actually visited hubby's brother in Keytesville. An hour before we reach his home, we missed the turn so; we were lost. We were driving to a road of nowhere and the bad thing was; we see humans for 25 minutes LOL. Literally, there is no one to ask for direction. We saw old houses, clothesline and a buggy. We realized that we were in the Amish neighborhood but, no one is around. Luckily, we saw an SUV and hubby signaled for a stop. Country people are friendly so; he stopped and when we asked for direction, he pointed the way. We were actually driving down the back road.
We arrived his brother's place safely but, the SUV Ford Edge was covered with dust. When we were lost, we were driving on a dirt road.
We saw Amish houses and Amish buggy which for me, they are cool.
When we reached the place of my brother-in-law in Lake Nehai, the place is gorgeous. They have a big restaurant but, its not doing well and I heard, it was close recently.
In the nearby town, one of the places that we went to is the Twin Oaks Amish Store. We bought quiet a few items from here. I bought an organic sweet caramel popcorn and it was my favorite.
I stayed for few minutes at the front of the store to take photos. I was truly satisfied with all the pictures which I took.
The prices of the mums despite of the differences what we have. , different colors different kinds of mums

Opps, are you singing? LOL! Finally, December is here! Are you excited? I bet some of you are excited! I am too. Christmas season is my favorite time of the year. It's not because I am expecting gifts. As a matter of fact; I consider it lucky if I receive one gift. Honestly, it doesn't matter really. What makes me happy for Christmas is the idea of good cheer and sharing. Giving gifts makes me happy and I do not expect any in return. Honest. You can ask my mom about it, hehehe.
Here is our Christmas Tree this year. What's lacking are red Christmas balls and few Christmas ornaments. Buying a Santa Clause became a tradition so; this year, I am eyeing on a unique Santa and probably buy Mrs Santa Clause too. I think I saw the pair in Lowe's.
I can't wait to hang the ornaments soon. After Christmas, I give away some of the decors to my mom and I buy another set of colors. Last year, it was all red.
How about you? I bet you are done decorating. It is good to start early so that; we can enjoy the Christmas season longer. Would you agree? Anyway, Merry Christmas!

This monument is a 1740 Spanish Fort located in Saint Augustine, Florida. We live at least 2 hours from here. Our first visit was on a Thursday, less crowded so; it was fun and exciting. We arrived at noon time. The ferry ride was free of charge and it was a smooth ride.
They said that the Fort is busiest on a weekend so; hubby and I were glad that we came here on weekdays. May is hot and humid so; if you plan to visit the Fort, bring a sunscreen and a hat. The Fort has a wooden ladder and stairs so; shoes is the right footwear to wear.
While waiting for the Ferry to comeback from the Fort, I was already excited after reading the Anatomy of the Fort. I can't wait to reach the tower. To reach the lookout area, one will have to climb a ladder, single only. Hubby did not do it. I was at the rooftop and the view was gorgeous.
The Fort was built by the Spanish to guard Matanzas Inlet, the southern mouth of the Matanzas River, which could be used as a rear entrance to the city of St. Augustine. A captain of the ferry narrated the history of the Fort.
We stayed for about two hours just taking pictures. Here are some of the photos in Fort Matanzas.
Check out some photos in this link too : Miniature Display.
This is the information board at the entrance of the Visitor's Area of Fort Matanzas.
This is an interesting place and I truly recommend that you should visit Fort Matanzas.
Here's hubby waiting for the ferry on the dock.
So near yet so far. I would love to visit this place one last time before we head back to Mississippi for good.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

The moment I saw this barn, I just can't believe that this is the childhood playground of Walt Disney. Yep, the iconic Philanthropist and the major figure in American Animation Industry once lived in Marceline, a town surrounded with farmlands. This barn stood still beyond time and just few yards away is Walt's dreaming tree where he spent hours dreaming the ultimate dream of his life.
Inside the barn is just ordinary and nothing much to see but, this barn is Walt's Happy Place. As we are enjoying the amazing Disney Magic in movies and the great sights and attractions in Disneyland and Magic Kingdom, those can be traced back down the memory lane in Marceline. As the young Walt made his first entertaining prowess inside this barn using animals in costume. Well, his audience was not happy about it so; his mom had him return the money to the audience. LOL.
Okay, I left my footprint in this barn, I mean, I did left my signature and message inside this barn. If you are going to visit Disney's Barn and his Dreaming Tree in Marceline, Missouri , please bring a sign pen with you. There is no CVS or Walgreens in this area. Yep, no store in this area. The nearest WalMart is about 15 minutes away.
This is the only sign that you have to look to reach this area. Parking space is probably less than 5 but, it's plenty for you. Not so many visitors came here to visit.
Disney loves this barn that is why; he recreated this barn in his home in California and used it as his workshop.
At the front of the barn. This looks like the farmland of my uncle back in the Philippines , (wink) .
Have you seen the movie So Dear To My Heart? If you don't , I found the video and added it below.
I have pictures inside the barn, I will be posting it here next time.
Thanks for stopping by.

Today is a rainy Thursday down here in the Space Coast. It is a bit muggy and as I checked out, look what I found hanging on the bird bath, a red-bellied woodpecker. Actually, this woodpecker is a frequent visitor in the yard. Mostly, it stayed on the electrical post at the back yard. It is very noisy and many times, it has the ability to wake me up in the morning by using its bill and drilling loudly into the post foraging in the hope of finding insects.
I still don't know the name of this tree but, when winter comes, it will look like this and pretty soon, it will become bare completely. I can't keep up mulching the leaves that is why; I don't like this tree at all. It gives too much of a hassle. In summer time, it provides the shed so; pretty much the reason why; we keep it.
Anyway, I have been trying to capture a video of the birds swimming in the bird bath. Yes, they are really swimming right after I filled it with water. They look cute and they don't fight. They take turns considering they are different species. Aside from woodpeckers, there are cardinals and doves too.
We don't feed the birds because the squirrels are watching on the tree. Despite of that, the birds love to hang out in our yard. In the afternoon, they are noisy by the fence and on the electrical wires nearby. What animals that hang out in your area? I hope not a snake LOL.
