After reading a lot of reviews for pro ject turntables, I am convinced that dad should have one of these. We saw his old records when we cleaned up the storage room last week and he said he wanted to use them again. Every single LP is still in great condition including his complete collection of The Beatles albums. The only problem is he doesn’t have a turntable for his vinyls. Hubs and I decided to get him this Christmas.
Whether you combine this delicious salad with exercise or you simply don’t have time to workout, this meal will surely help shrink your belly.

It’s not even 2014 yet but hubs is already busy preparing for the Asian Intercity Bowling Tournament which will be held here in October. It’s a good thing the local government is helping out. At least it’s not only hubs who will shoulder all the work. With their full support hubs will only be handling the tournament itself. It’s a big event and he needs all the help he could get. Right now he is scouting for the lowest price print he could find. A lot of brochures, invites, rules and regulations and other documents will be printed and sent out to the different participating countries and they need to save their funds because more expenses are coming their way, not to mention the unexpected expenses. Hopefully, with all of them working together, the tourney will be a success.
The holidays are right around the corner and the endless array of high-calorie goodies you will see at every party will make it very tough to stick to a healthy diet. Here’s a trick to help you avoid splurging. Whenever you are tempted to indulge on treats, try using your wrong hand. Nibbling using your nondominant hand can help minimize the damage. Studies show that simply switching hands can help cut your calorie intake by 30 percent without leaving you hungry or deprived. That’s because eating with your clumsier hand forces you to slow down, giving your body more time to produce appetite-taming compounds.
I got mom a couch cushion for her achy back. Ever since she gained more weight her back has become a problem. She’s trying to lose weight through walking but because of her age, she’s not losing them fast. She says she feels more comfortable now when she sits with the cushion. She can sit longer to watch her favorite show. She looks so comfortable in the couch that I had to get one for myself. I don’t have back problems but I’d also like to sit comfortably while reading a book.
