Christmas is almost here and people are very busy doing their last minute shopping for the holidays. But what's really with Christmas that people has this adrenaline rush and wanted things set up before the holiday hit. Well, Christmas is a tradition celebrated in every corner around the world. It is to pay respect to our Lord Jesus Christ upon coming into this world. We give gifts, do community service for the others and prepare a bunch of food. This is what excites me during Christmas - the food and the gifts. Back home ( Philippines ) we woke up in the middle of the night to celebrate Christmas. My mom would prepare a lot of food for us to eat after midnight. I miss it though and how I wish were back home ( my husband and I ). Truly the saying goes "there's no place like home" is very accurate. I miss the celebration we always have in my country but I know someday, my husband and I together with our precious daughter will be celebrating Christmas again in the Philippines. Speaking of food, people prepare different kinds of food during the holiday. Name it and you have it. The most popular is the ham and of course the stress point of every food - gravy. A gravy could be yummy if it's cooked right and the right ingredients are all there. But if there's one missing ingredient, your food could be messed up. Would you allow that to happen during the holidays? Of course not. Well, to perfectly do the right one, you can go to gravy tips video. This is a step by step procedure in making the perfect gravy for the holiday. This video is provided by Club House that came up with a club house gravy mix. Using this mix, Christmas meal is as easy. You can also join on the ongoing newsletter sign-up and contest entry this year. Hurry up and be part of it.

A week after I got here in the United States, the first thing I saw were squirrels in the front yard, raccoons on the side road ( they were dead) and rabbits at the back yard. At first I was very amazed with these creatures because I have not seen them in my country ( Philippines ). Well, not with the rabbits though because we also have rabbits over there. I got a close up look of the squirrels and raccoons one day and I was astounded. I don't know but probably the feeling of seeing them the first time made me so fascinated about them. Yes, they are so adorable at first but on the later part of the year, they become disturbing and threatening. Squirrels starts eating the bird seeds for our birds and the nasty smell of a dead raccoon starts circulating in our vicinity. I did not know they could create such mess in our property and it does bothering. Did a little research for a solution and stumbled on a website. I came across Havahart website and they have all the information we needed to a permanent solution. Upon reading the details in their website, Animal Trapping Tips was highlighted. I can't believe to what I've read and the solutions they have provided. I was very astounded with the different tips they gave such as Havahart Easy Set Large Animal Trap as well as Havahart Easy Set Small Animal Trap. Wow! never in my mind that the process is so easy but I'm sure glad I got stumbled in their website and found a permanent solution to our problem.

Who would ever not want to have a break and have a great vacation to a particular place. Obviously, there are so many places to choose from but I have one thing in my mind. When I hear the word " vacation" I always think about going to Hawaii because a lot of people have proven that this place is awesome and a paradise. Hearing this comment, encourages me more to visit Hawaii, particularly Maui Resort . I have heard so much about these resort. In fact, I want to fly there right now. I have even seen videos of Maui Weddings and man I tell you, the ambiance is so romantic and suites best with the occasion. Just looking at it will make you think of the things that will happen after the wedding. Well I am talking about the honeymoon stage and I tell you this place is perfect. The wedding was held at Ka'anapali Resort, located on the beautiful Hawaiian island Maui. Awesome view, fantastic set up, perfect location and you will totally fall in love with the place. I so love to be in this place one day together with my husband. This will be a great get away for both of us and a great place to spend our time with each other. I can see that we will truly enjoy our stay.

Oh the joy of football season. We wait on it, then dread it ending. We break out our jerseys and stories of our own great careers in high school. Teaching the art of yelling at the referee to our children and our wives. Making sure we have plenty of snacks, see we do not have to leave our chairs as we set there and tell these overpriced coaches where the messed up.
Yep that's us, the armchair quarterback we never have a bad pass unless we drop the chips and now Jones Soda will allow you to drink seahawk sodas in three different flavors.
That's right, you can get cream soda, green apple, or even berry lemonade. The seahawk fans should be excited but what about the rest of us. Myself being a New England fans, what about berry brady or for my other team ben root beer or even totally orange troy. Gee these could be fun limited edition collection sodas for the fans. The hardest part would be keeping them on the shelf.
The ultimate fan gift even Christmas presents will be easier with these. So if you are looking for the perfect gift for me, wait til they come out with the saintly strawberries. If you have some of your own, let me hear them.

The corset, if you're one of the small percentage of our readership not wearing one right now, was meant to suck in a woman's problem-areas with the small side effect of cutting off all circulation between their legs and head.
The result was not so much an hourglass figure, but a body that became an actual hourglass. Queen Maud of Norway was famous for her very small waistline, and many of her gowns are still exhibited so everyone can view their beauty and not-at-all freakishness.
How It Could Kill You:
The act of donning a corset didn't actually become truly dangerous until people started tight lacing them to the point that their insides were squeezed like a toothpaste tube.
Unsurprisingly, when tight lacing was fashionable people didn't breathe very well. With their liver in their throats and their lungs in their bellies, Victorian women invented "the heaving bosoms." Breathing the wrong way in one of these things could break a rib (a serious injury in the days before anesthesia) and cramming all of the organs inwards could cause internal bleeding. Female impersonator, Joseph Hennella, was doubly unfortunate when, in 1912, he first collapsed on stage as the result of the tight lacing from his corset, and then when The New York Times wrote the part about what killed him, they said it was his "increasing girth."
In 1903, a woman died suddenly due to two pieces of corset steel that became lodged in her heart. Yeah, when your outfit fucking stabs you to death, it's probably a sign that you've made a bad fashion decision.
