From Vinyl record albums to MP3

CDs and DVDs are quickly becoming a thing of the past because nowadays almost everyone owns some kind of MP3 player . Music is on a constant change. From the vinyl record albums on a turntable, to the cassette tape recorder , CDs to DVDs. With the advancing technology, people are constantly looking for the best online music stores to purchase or listen to their favorite songs. There are many online stores available for downloading music for free , but there are a few that stand out from the rest for selection and service. Like the one my son subscribed for more than a year now. He can choose from over thousand of songs and download it for free. I am amazed about my son’s ability to find free music and video downloading sites. One time, I told him to find an online store that sells branded microphone and blue tooth speaker . After an hour of searching he was able to give me the website. Not only that I got free shipping and I was able to get the gadgets at a very affordable price. How amazing kids are these days!

Have you seen a Melodica ?

Send for our free catalog. This is somewhat unique for an online store to offer free catalogues when In fact anyone can just browse the internet and choose any item you want. Maybe , it is just one of their marketing strategy to distribute printed catalogues. Anyway, I am excited to receive their offer considering that my mom is looking for a melodica. I am not really familiar with this kind of musical instrument so google answered it for me. Also called a "blow-organ", a melodica is an instrument with a free-reed system, similar in use to a harmonica and an accordion. With a musical keyboard on top, a melodica is played by blowing through the mouthpiece found on the one side of the instrument. A key opens the hole to allow air to flow through the reed. Have you seen a melodica?

Why you should involve your children to sports

Games and sports are an opportunity for children to mingle with other kids and at the same time get some exercise. Children should not be deprived of outdoor play and should instead be encouraged to participate. Games and sports provide a more fulfilled childhood especially for those whose passion lies in sports. A child should be encouraged to pursue a game or sport that he or she loves in order to develop their self-confidence.

Are your children showing interest in sports? Encourage them!

Sad to know that casual sex and promiscuity is every where you look.

 You cannot surf the Internet,open up a magazine watch TV or listen to the radio with out sex and loose morals being glorified. Thank be to God there are Churches and Christian youth organization across the globe which advocates TRUE LOVE WAITS. Our church is one of these churches that campaigns against pre-marital sex. Every year, we are holding a TRUE LOVE WAITS Symposium to different campuses in the city. Although the world now can be called as "immoral" , there are still teenagers and young adults are choosing to keep their virginity until marriage. Young adults who were previously sexually active, deciding to abstain from sex until they are married. Thank God for the TRUE LOVE WAITS movement.

We lost a house during the typhoon, but we found a home .....

To be honest I always had trouble maintaining my kitchen accessories such as dishes,  spoons, forks, condiments small containers and other such stuff . Worst is ,  I always forgot where I put those things. I find it  irritating every time I  have rush cooking jobs at home.

That was 15 years ago when I was still a new   wife.  Back then I had no clue of finding a solution. Thanks to my mom who one  day came over to my house and went through my kitchen cabinet doors . She advised me to  to manage my cabinet accessories through cabinet organizers . When , I went   to the biggest home depot  store , I found  a lazy Susan kitchen cabinet organizer and  drawer which can be kept in one of the lower shelves. This can be  used for containing bottles and jars  but  it can be utilized  in storing  cups, cans and dishes too. 

Unfortunately, all of my kitchen organizers together with most of our appliances were damaged during the typhoon " Sendong " that  devastated our place.  Anyway, I am forever grateful with my mother-in-law for  making us comfortably live at the second floor of their house. She has a beautiful and well-maintained house. Her two kitchens are  lavishly equipped with  accessories and appliances just like  the ovis for kitchen cabinet organizer  I saw online.  We  lost a house during the typhoon, but we found a home in my in-laws ancestral house. God truly is so good!

An electric guitar set for your little ones

Chizue,  as we fondly call our little darling in the clan, is now learning to play the guitar. Amazing! At the age of  Four, he can    already strum some  chords and hit the right tune for his song.    I know he wanted  a real guitar after playing for a long time with his toy guitar and I guess now is the time to have his own.  Teaching a kid to play guitar  is a  challenge for any guitar teacher. Often times, a guitar teacher will have to work out some sort of a method to suits their young student. But  this is not a problem with his parents who are both musically inclined. His father is a bass guitar player for  30 years now and his mom is also a vocalist  of  a well known   band in the city. 

The  gift of music runs in  Chizue blood. So what's next baby boy ? A guitar amplifier ? Oh yeah,  their are electric guitar sets that are small in size and meant for a kid to learn. The electric guitars are definitely louder, but these days you can even plug earphones into them so the only one who hears it is the child ( Your neighbors will definitely thank you for this ). I  have just  Read Full Review for a cheaper  electric guitar set from a famous music online store.  I believed the  best thing to do for parents looking for  electric guitars and amps is to start off with something that isn't too expensive then buy a better one when the  child really has an interest in playing. This way you are less likely to end up with a dusty guitar on a shelf in the closet ( just like my daughter who love for playing her acoustic guitar ended up when  she turned affection from Taylor Swift to One Direction Boy Band  ...LOL! )
