Domain Name

Last night I decided to buy a domain name. A domain name is an identification label that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control on the Internet, based on the Domain Name System. An important purpose of domain names is to provide easily recognizable and memorizable names to numerically addressed Internet resources. (Wikipedia) I wanted to customized my blog name already that's why I bought it. Since my blog address was http://bmtrrbt.blogspot.com/ under blogger, now it is http://www.memotoremember.com/ and still its under blogger but its my own now. I bought a domain name on Google since its only $10.00 for one year and powered by GoDaddy.com

I know it is not necessary to have a domain name but its still nice to have your own website without a blogspot.com after it. Enjoy!

Just Another Sad Day

I just feel sad today. Its something that I don't really want to talk about but I guess I am now. I just wish that everything will be okay. I remember when I had a big mass in my face I was loosing hope of finding a doctor to operate me. Then God helped us and was able to find one. I had a big mass in my face for over two years and had a major surgery just to get it and reconstruct my face. Remembering that days, I cant realize how my life was already in danger at that time. The mass was spreading almost to my brain and if we weren't able to find a doctor maybe by now I already died from it.

Today, I realize having medical bills of almost $16,000 I guess worth it for my life to be saved. The bad thing is just we don't have money to pay for that amount. That's why I'm sad because there's nothing I can do about it right now but to wait for the extension of my insurance to get approve and hope it will or else we will be in debt for quite a long time. I am so thankful to the two doctors but in my mind there is this thought that's bothering me. March 28th, my insurance expired and March 25th was my first operation. The second operation was March 31th, if only they would have done it before March 28, I wouldn't have this problem. This is whats bothering me and I know its not their fault. Its just my responsibility to just pay it if I wont get approve.

I wont say life sucks because I know it doesn't. There's just this challenges that people need to learn to face. I can say its another big challenge for me again and I know God is with me. He never gives us challenges that we cant surpass. I am in tears now but I know it wont be forever. I just need to think positive and keep in mind that God is always there to guide, help and love us in every situation we are in. God bless everyone.

My Favorite TV Snack

Guest post from: Fredrick Watkins

My favorite TV snack is definitely popcorn, who doesn't love it? It comes in all different flavors and brands, everyone in my house has their favorites. I can never get bored with popcorn either, if I don't want the regular old butter flavor, I can just buy a box of kettle-cooked. Plus, it is very easy to make and inexpensive. All i have to do to have a freshly-popped bowl of popcorn is put in in the microwave for a few minutes then my family and I can enjoy it.

For as long as I can remember popcorn has been my favorite TV snack. When I was little, me and my family used to have a family "movie night" and I always was the one to put the popcorn in the microwave. We always had to make more than one bag of popcorn because as soon as you put in out, it was gone. Even after everyone was too old for family "movie night" in my family, I would still sit and watch one of the cable tv specials with my bag of popcorn.

Popcorn is also so easy to buy anywhere. In movie theaters it is sold by the bowl, grocery stores of course sell a wide selection of it, and even drug stores sell microwave popcorn. Whether you live in New York City or out in Kansas you can find any package store, or movie rental shop that sells popcorn.

How to Remove Navbar

A navbar is a navigation logo at the top of your blog. When I started blogging I wanted my blog to look good. I was checking and learning things. One of the things I noticed was the navbar. I didn't like it because it doesn't match some templates. If you don't like to have a navbar on your blog this how you can remove it.

Go to Layout or Design. Click Edit HTML and search for /* Variable definitions.

Above  /* Variable definitions, paste this:

#navbar-iframe {
display: none !important;
}
 
View your blog and navbar removed. So easy to do.

Fave Disney Shows

Hubby and I like Disney Channel. It has some good shows that we like so much. I never thought that hubby will like "kiddie" shows because he is already 51 years old. I thought at his age he would choose to watch shows that adult usually watch but I guess I was wrong. When I was in the Philippines I never really like to watch Disney. Its not that I didn't like it but I just cant relate to what their talking about. When I got here, then I was able to like it because somebody can tell me whats happening if I couldn't understand the situations and that's my dearest hubby.

These are the shows that we like to watch on Disney Channel:

This is a show about a twin living in a ship.
This is a show about a family with wizard magical abilities.
This is a show about family with their baby named Charlie.

Fun Farm Fair 2010

We had a fun time at the farm fair today. We went there around 9 am and a lot of people were there already. As usual parking was a bit hard to find because the farm fair was in the Bishop Museum and only valet parking was allowed in their parking lot. People needed to find parking anywhere in the streets near the farm fair but luckily we found a spot that wasn't that far from the fair.

When we got there, there was a long line of people standing to pay the gate pass to the farm fair. While we were in line there was this man who gave us two wristband for the fair and it was free. We couldn't believe it because not all people were given a wristband. The man gave my hubby two wristband, one for adult and one for child. I told my hubby that the other wristband is for a child because the man thought I'm a child. Hubby asked the man for an adult wristband but nothing was left already. I had no choice but to wear the child wristband. I felt quite nervous while entering the gate because they might stop and ask me but they never did.

I enjoyed it so much because I got quite a bit giveaways. These are the things I got from the farm fair. When it comes to free things I don't get ashamed to keep on coming back to get some more unless I don't like the person giving it.



Our baby enjoyed the farm fair too. He was able to see some animals there. When we got to the little petting zoo, I saw a dog. I was thinking why there's a dog in here but I guess he is part of their farm life. My hubby didn't let our baby touch the dog because little Poopie doesn't know how to pet yet hence he knows how to grab. Hubby, me and Poopie enjoyed at the farm fair. Looking forward for the next one.

A Car to Remember

I saw this commercial of Toyota on TV. Its about this lady who was starting a pastry business but didn't have a car to deliver the pastries to her customers. Her good friends then surprised her. They gave her a nice car and she was so happy about it. It reminded me of my friend in LA. Ive known her from a website and we became good friends. We always chat online about our life here in USA and anything under the sun. She is a nice friend and good listener too.

One day, I got a call from her. She usually doesn't call me that's why I was wondering whats happening to her. Then she told me that her hubby bought a Honda Civic car for her. She was so happy and wished that she can drive her car all the way to Hawaii but I know its way impossible to do. The car was a used car but still a car is a car for her. I was happy and excited for her too. She was still learning how to drive at that time and didn't have a driver's license yet. Her husband taught her how to drive and eventually she learned how to drive better.

As she was driving going to the park, her car stopped running. She was driving on the left side of the lane when the car stopped. She felt panic because the traffic was building up and she didn't know what to do. She called her husband and her husband called the towing company to tow her car to Los Angeles auto repair shop. Little did she know that her car had a blown head gasket which led to a major damage. She felt so sad and disappointed about it. The cost to fix her car was almost the same price of the car. She didn't have a choice but to just forget fixing her car. Though it was a car that was so precious to her but for her things come and go. If one goes a better one comes.

Kate Plus 8

This was written by guest blogger Mark Kale

As a woman growing up with a single mother, I can see firsthand how hard it is for women to make it in this world. I love the show Kate Plus 8 because it depicts the true story of a mother just trying to provide for her kids without the assistance of a man. I love watching this show every chance I get on the channels I get through the cable tv deals around Dallas.

"Kate Plus 8" offers a truly poignant look into the life of Kate Gosselin. She is a woman that has had to deal with a cheating husband, all while having 8 kids. It is very inspiring to see how Kate deals with such a tough situation in front of millions of people. I know some people claim that she uses her kids for fame or making money, but I don't think it is like that. I think Kate's intentions are to provide a future for her kids and make sure they are always provided for. According to her ratings, I would think that many other women in the world think Kate's intentions are also to provide for her children rather than use them for her own fame or gain in life.

Kate Gosselin is a wonderful woman with a huge heart. Can you imagine raising 8 kids by yourself without the help of a spouse? I sure can not imagine that!

MTV

Guest blog post by Ryan Norton

As a music lover, I am in love with MTV. This is by far my favorite channel to watch on hd cable tv. MTV always depicts the hottest artists with their newest albums and singles. To catch up on the music scene, MTV is the way to go.

One of my favorite shows to watch on MTV is the MTV Music Awards. There is always something unexpected that happens at the MTV Music Awards. For example, remember the time Britney Spears gave a performance wearing an outfit that only consisted of rhinestones? Or, how about the time Madonna performed her single "Like a Virgin" in a lacy wedding dress? I love the MTV Music Awards for the outlandish activities that are always happening during this ceremony. In addition, I love catching up on the music videos from my favorite artists. Some of my favorite artists are Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, and Beyonce. Whenever Beyonce's video for "Single Ladies" appears on television, I can't help but start dancing to the video!

MTV has transformed the world of music. It has taken television to another level, in the way that it has made television a platform for the latest musical artists, bands, and singers. I think there are many singers that are grateful to MTV for helping them to make their way in a very competitive field.
