{Money Mondays} The PDIC,Fractional Reserve Banking and Fiat Money

Sometimes, life deals you a trick card. The shower gets busted (and for you, warm showers are a “need”, not a “want”), the blow dryer suddenly fries (and you are that kind of person who cannot go out without your hair in place), the bedroom TV stopped working after 15 years (and you just have to know how that fifth guy in the reality show confessed he was gay), some dark greasy thing is leaking from the CRV in addition to the car remote going dead for like a millionth time, and transfer taxes on your parents’ estate are bigger than you expected...  (Okaaay,  I just let you take a peek on my shallow now that I am reading it hehe)

Financial gurus have long advised people to have an emergency fund – one that you can dip into in emergency cases like the ones I mentioned above, especially when they happen all at the same time, like the universe is conspiring against you. They advise you to save for a rainy day, save before spending, make a budget...

But what if your emergency fund is in a bank that suddenly goes bankrupt?

{Review} HoneySuckle® Breastmilk Storage Bags

Blogging opened me to this word – advocacy

Before discovering the online world and bloggers passionate with their own causes, I was drifting in my small, offline world, with my mini-advocacies – health, education, etc.  

Until I realized that I lectured practically every pregnant women I see anywhere (it does not matter whether I know them or not) on the benefits of breastfeeding.  And that was when I realized one of my personal advocacies is breastfeeding.

I breastfed my youngest,  Adrian, for five years.

Fun Times are Ahead!


Some people wait for “fun in the sun” nearly all year. When it’s time to get that boat back in the water, people know fun times are ahead. Click here to discover options on how to lower a boat into the water.

Some people choose to lounge around on their boats. Despite the many fun activities that people can do on the water, lying on a boat and catching a nap is extremely relaxing. For starters, the up and down motion of the boat is particularly soothing. The bobbing motion puts people asleep rather quickly. Catching extra rest helps the body to recuperate form stress.

Fishing from a boat is sometimes better than fishing from the shore. People are more likely to catch fish when they are out on the water. Fish are likely to swim further out and may be found around forms of vegetation—either to eat or hide from larger fish.

Picnics and grilling are fun on a boat. A small barbecue can be brought aboard and some boats are equipped with small kitchens for cooking. With a seating area for four to six people, an intimate setting is created. Being with good friends and family on the water while eating and having beverages is a guaranteed good time.

It’s important to enjoy the finer things in life. A boat offers many possibilities and opportunities for fun. It’s time to get the boat in the water and enjoy it.
