Dexter: Season 1

Netflix has Dexter Season 1 and 2 on instant play. My husband and I watched it. We're addicted. We finished season 1 in one week, despite being so busy with work and everything else.

We're now about to watch season 2. I can hardly wait. When Dexter first came out, I didn't think I would like it. I mean, come on, he's a serial killer. But, I love Michael C. Hall here. They do a perfect job. If you haven't watch it, you should.

iPod Video 160 GB

I was so happy to get my iPod over a year ago. And two weeks ago, it won't sync with iTunes because of these errors. If you happen to know why it's doing this, please, feel free to leave a comment. I'll even give you a free book (got lots of fiction books because it's my vice).

High School Musical 4

I just love Zac Efron! You've gotta watch this. I enjoyed watching 17 AGAIN the movie. I enjoyed High School Musical. Have you seen it?

Find Best Rates

Have you noticed that everything these days seem to require shopping? When I was running out of laundry detergent, I find myself comparing prices between stores. Like everything else, CD Rates needs comparison shopping too. When it comes to money these days, it pays to shop around for storing it. Of course, my laundry detergent comparison might have been a rationalization for shopping a lot. Still, I find that I saved myself several dollars by comparing prizes. It didn't save me time because I went to two stores, but it sure was fun.

Window Shopping

I'm more the sit and read type. But there are times when I am really inspired to shop. I don't shop for anything in particular, but when I find myself inside a Lowes Home Improvement site, then I find myself wandering the aisles for hours!

I was quite amused at this display. This battery is car-sized!

I think I'm going to get my husband this gift for father's day. I wanted to build a gazebo, and this one would definitely make it a not too subtle nudge in the right direction.

Perfect, Timeless Gift

I first heard about hummingbird from my mother-in-law. She loves them. She paints and draws them. She also has an extensive collection of book about them. So, each special occasion is an opportunity to get her different kinds of hummingbird feeders. My mother-in-law's quite superstitious.

Do you know that hummingbirds have an average lifespan of about 3-4 years, although quite a few will die in their first year. They come with many different looks, but I think that this particular feeder below is attractive to them.
I heard that they usually can take artificial sugar. White granulated sugar is proven safest for them. With a ratio of one cup sugar to four cup water, you could fill this feeder and perhaps enjoy watching the hummingbird as they stop by. To prevent bacterial growth, it helps to boil and cool this mixture before storing it in feeder.

Aztecs wear hummingbird talisman to enhance sexual potency, and skills for war and fighting. Its sharp, narrow beaks resembling weapons of war, sexual organs and bloodletting tools. These are significant during ancient time. My mother-in-law owns a number of jewelry with hummingbird on it. They're quite beautiful. Hummingbirds cannot survive harsh winter weather, hence the reason for their migration. They travel far and wide to find food. They prefer flowers with high sugar content. This is good to know for your next year's garden planning.

Landscape Envy

I love how my cousin's yard is turning out. I've been wanting to redo my backyard landscape, but I don't want to pay someone to do it 10,000 or more in labor only. I want to do it myself. I think that green gras and some brick work would make a big difference. But there are so many bricks out there, it's hard to figure out which one I like. I'm shopping now, and making room in our budget to get the yard I want. The best part is, I won't have to pay an arm and a leg for it.

Aren't these lovely?


I love flowers. There's not a single crappy day that can't be better with flowers. I started a garden of my own. I love the feeling of looking at the flowers I grow. I especially like the ones I grow fom seeds.
