Vote and be heard!

When someone votes, they are being a part of the democracy in America by making their voice and ideas heard. Voting is a choice of who a person thinks will better represent them and the rest of America. Actions can describe your ideals. Voting is not only a privilege, it is a responsibility. Please vote, and encourage others around you to vote also.

Keene Pumpkin Festival

A World Record Event...

DD's "Confused Pumpkin" she registered at the event. Why confused? She said, we can't decide if we are going or not because of the weather. We ended up going, we really don't want to miss our annual family traditon.

DD's pumpkin was counted in The 2008 Pumpkin Festival.
Keene missed the Guinness world record again this year. The official tally of 22,568 pumpkins fell 7,560 gourds short of the world record, but we really enjoyed the celebration. We've been attending this festival for 4 years now and still enjoying it.

The funny pumpkin

"When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed,
Up jumped the pumpkin,
And this is what he said:

I'm a dingle dangle pumpkin
With a flippy floppy hat.
I can shake my stem like this,
And shake my vine like that."

from: M.Garofalo's compilations of poems

Just being frugal...

As part of my effort to minimize the unnecessary spending I finally convinced my DH to change the ISP of our computer at home. Just for changing the ISP we are going to save $384.00 for the first six months and $34.00 a month thereafter. Isn't it great? I didn't even notice the changes in speed. I hope DH will be happy with the changes.
This was the cause of not dropping EC for 3 days, I thank all my fellow bloggers who kept dropping on my site. I really appreciate it.

With the Flaming Shades of Fall

"Colors burst in wild explosions
Fiery, flaming shades of fall
All in accord with my pounding heart
Behold the autumn-weaver
In bronze and yellow dying
Colors unfold into dreams
In hordes of a thousand and one
The bleeding
Unwearing their masks to the last notes of summer
Their flutes and horns in nightly swarming
Colors burst within Spare me those unending fires
Bestowed upon the flaming shades of fall."

An Apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Have you heard the saying "an Apple a day will keep the doctor away?" Well, an apple alone may not be enough to keep the doctor away, but it certainly can help. Apples are a delicious, low calorie, high fiber addition to any diet. When most people think about eating an apple they imagine a large, vibrant red delicious apple, the Classic American snacking apple. However, there are more than 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the US and 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world. Some of the most delicious apples are the ones eaten immediately after being picked from an apple tree. Once washed, it's a good idea to eat an apple with it's skin intact. Just beneath the skin is the greatest concentration of Vitamin C and the skin increases the amount of fiber offerred by the apple. You can't get bored eating apples because there are so many varieties that range sweet to tart, and from soft to smooth to crisp and crunchy. No matter what your taste buds you are sure to find one that pleases your taste buds. So go explore in your local store or near-by market and enjoy an apple today!

The Velveteen Rabbit

We started reading books to our DD since she was months old. She was always excited everytime she saw me with a book on hand. Now that she's 5 years old she can choose what story she wants us to read. At a very young age, she showed me the emotional side of her. Several times, I saw her eyes watered while I read stories. One afternoon she asked me to read the story of "The Velveteen Rabbit" she said, "Please Momma, can you read this book to me. This story is about Love." While reading the middle part of the story I saw her eyes watered and was trying to hide her face from me. I asked her if I said something that hurt her feeling. A bit embarrassed she said, don't worry mom this is just tears of joy. I know that she was touched with the story. When we're done she went to the living room sat on the couch holding Lara (our cat) and cried more. I let her eased up a little bit then talked to her the lesson of the story, how great it is to have loved ones, to have friends. No matter what, you know they always want the best for you. There were times that I don't want to read touching stories coz I really don't want to see her cry while listening, but those are the ones that has a great lessons. Did you guys experience it with your children or my DD is just a bit emotional.

Happy 6 month birthday Lara!


Lara has been with us for 4 months now and already had visited the vet 3 times. She has another appointment coming up so she can be spayed. She is really a playful cat. She often climbs on the screen door and the curtains. But she is really sweet when she is on DD's bedroom, she does not disturb her nor making any noise, she just stays there giving our DD company. She loves playing with a "crinkle ball" cat toy, which is made of aluminum mylar. It is amazing to watch. I am surprised it hasn't been lost yet. I've retrieved it from under furniture a few times already. I am thinking of buying some more toys for her since it is her birthday. Happy Birthday Lara!
