Cash advance loan

Money matters. Yes, it does. We need to pay for our shelter, food, clothes, transportation, repairs and such. Money is one of the necessities in life. However, we encounter some undesirable eventualities or problems in life that involve money, like car repair, house repair, plumbing, etc. The most common thing that people would do is to sell the valuables to get some cash. They do not know that they can get instant cash through cash advance loan.

Cash advance loan is a short term loan that you can borrow from a lender and then pay if off on the next payday. It is an easy and quick solution to financial problem. Typically, you can borrow money up to $1,500 cash.

Moved In

This guest post from Werner Rogers

I went to when I first moved in to try and snag a better rate – money was really tight since I’d gotten a bigger house than I had intended which in turn made the utilities more than I was ready for, too! It wasn’t a huge deal because at the end of the day I was happy I’d bough the exact house I wanted to buy. I was definitely going to be the epitome of house poor but you know, I didn’t mind because this place was such a great investment and it is totally big enough for me to grow into when I get married and start having kids one day. I like to do things faster than I normally would but you know, that’s the new me. I’m impulsive and good at making decisions on the fly and I Usually (keyword: usually) don’t do things that are the worst for me in the long run. I try to be smart about big things but you know, that’s the deal!

Medical scrubs

Several years ago, medical scrubs were designed with just plain white color appearance. They looked dull and boring. But nowadays, medical scrubs come in different colors and designs. You can simply choose your favorite color, pattern, and body size. They look more attractive. And plus, they come in pants now. Before health or medical care workers wear long skirts. They didn't seem and look so comfortable to wear. Medical scrubs also designed with cartoons and attractive patterns. You can even custom design it. Personally, I love hot pink scrubs - they are look really cute.

Nevertheless, you can easily find medical scrubs at the local stores or online, which come in different shapes and sizes. They fit on nurses, medical assistants, hospital staffs or even doctors. One of the website which I found helpful in finding medical scrubs is They have a wide selection of medical scrubs uniforms.

In choosing medical scrubs, you should always consider the quality of the material used. Good quality scrubs make you work better and comfortable at work. The quality matters most since you wear medical scrubs on daily basis at work.

Long weekend

I had a long weekend. I helped my husband cleared up and organized our shed. We also fixed our plumbing. I can say that it wasn't easy. We had to go under our house to do it. And the most fun about it was I learned to connect pipes with soldering iron. Good thing that my husband preferred to use SN100C, a lead-free solder alloy. Lead-based solder is definitely not good to our environment and of course, to us. My husband is pretty conscious about the environment. We also painted the poles in our driveway. I was so glad that we had accomplished a lot on the weekend.

Feeling tired

I feel tired today. I have a lot of things to do. Sometimes I wonder how I am going to get things done in a day. Being a full-time mom is not easy though it's fun. I love being a mom, but sometimes it's very overwhelming. I must admit that I feel guilty when I let my little guy just watch tv sometimes because I am busy doing something important. What can I do? It's just me and my little guy every day. I don't have any help. I think I really have to organize my schedule so my day is not so messed up.

Not a single trick or treater

How was your Halloween? To my surprise, not a single trick or treater knocked on our house. I had a big bowl of candies waiting for kids to come and say "trick or treat", but no one came over. I was excited for my little guy to give out some candies as it's his first Halloween. I guess, the kids probably nobody is at home. Porch light was on. They probably didn't get the hint. Anyhow, I told my stepson to share and give our candies to his friends. So, they had a candy party last weekend. It was fun watching them having fun.

Mom's Advice

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

My mom is the smartest businessperson I know and she’s done me a lot of good in the short time I’ve owned my own shoe store. It’s always been my dream to do something like this so naturally I went right to my mom when I thought of starting up the shop – boy, was that the best decision ever! She talked to me about all the logistical stuff; the taxes, small business xo, my accountant, and made sure I had my head on straight and that my expectations were realistic before I got too far in my planning. We ironed out a lot of kinks before I ever even opened up the doors to the shoe store which saved me a lot of hassles in the long run. I love my mom and I consider her my silent business partner even though she doesn’t have any money in the game. I would give her the shirt off my back and I know she’d do the same thing for me which is what I call support!


Are you ready for Halloween? I don't really care for Halloween, it's no big deal to me. Back in the days in P.I. my family observe the "All Saint's Day and All Soul's Day". These are the days after Halloween. I didn't grow up participating on Halloween that much. I was wondering how Halloween got started. So, I researched on the net (Internet has become my library now!) and found out that Halloween originated back more than 2,000 years. The Europe's Celtic people celebrated their New Year's Day on November 1, called Samhain (SAH-win). The night before Samhain, people thought spirits, Fairies, demons, and other creatures were to walk the Earth as they traveled to the afterlife. They sacrificed animals to the gods by gathering around bonfires. And they wore animal skin costumes and wearing masks to confuse spirits, perhaps to avoid being possessed. Moreover, the Celts costumed as spirits are believed to have gone from house to house engaging in silly acts in exchange for food and drink, which is the "trick-or-treating" now.

Then, Samhain was later adopted by Catholic for pagan holidays. And In the seventh century Pope Boniface IV decreed November 1 All Saints' Day, or All Hallows' Day. The night before Samhain continued to be observed with bonfires, costumes, and parades, under a new name: All Hallows' Eve—later "Halloween."

The Dancing House

Have you heard of The Dancing House? Does this house actually dance? Of course not! The Dancing House is the nickname of Nationale-Nederlanden building in downtown Prague, Czech Republic It was designed by Croatian-born Czech architect Vlado Milunić in co-operation with Canadian architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot. This design was very controversial since it is non-traditional. On the roof, you will see the French restaurant with magnificent views of the city.

We need to take care of our eyes. Sometimes, we take eyes for granted-- we tend to always focus on our face. There are ways to have healthier eyes. Take adequate rest and sleep to refresh the eyes and help them function well. Eat fruits and vegetables such as carrots, spinach, papaya and mangoes. These are rich in beta carotene. Beta carotene helps to have healthy eyes. Exercise for blood circulation to make sure the eyes get enough oxygen for function. Don't ever rub your eyes. Just blink your eyelids. It is a good exercise to the eyes. Drink at least 12 glasses of water to avoid any kind of puffiness in the eyes. Hope these tips are helpful.

Trapped in the Drive - Thru

Check out the video above. It is Weird Al Yankovic "Trapped in the Drive-thru". It is a parody of R. Kelly's Trapped in the closet. I thought Weird Al's version is way better than R. Kelly's which is ridiculous. Enjoy the video. And listen carefully to the lyrics. It is very hilarious!

Wow, time actually runs fast. Today is the 2nd day of August. Why August is the 8th month of the year? I was just wondering how people came up with Month names. Let's start with August. It is the 8th month of the Gregorian calendar. In Astrology, August begins with the sun in the sign of Leo and ends in the sign of Virgo. This month was originally named "Sextilis" in Latin because it was in the first place, the sixth month in the ancient Roman calendar in which started with March. Then it later became the eighth month when January and February were added to the beginning of the year. August was renamed in honor of Augustus. Actually, August originally had 29 days in the Roman calendar. Augustus took two days from February and added it to August when Sextilis was renamed in his honor. Sounds interesting huh?

February is the month of hearts

February is the month of hearts.Many people have forgotten what this day is all about. They thought it is merely for lovers, couples, loved ones, crushes, friends, for romance etc. But today is St. Valentine’s Day. It is covered with mystery. Who is St. Valentine? Valentine was a priest who served for the period of the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II determined that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families. He had forbidden young men to get married who were potentially to be good soldiers. St. Valentine realized the discrimination and unfairness of the decree. He challenged Claudius and sustained to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine's dealings were revealed. Claudius ordered that Valentine be put to death. During the days that Valentine was in jailed, he fell in love with the blind daughter of his warden. He miraculously heal her from her blindness because of his love for her and great faith to God. Before his death, he sent her a letter saying, "From your Valentine." The phrase has been used on his day ever since.
