Buckle Up for Safety

1 comments
I just wanna share this important articles that i've read and i'm sure even though we are all aware of it already yet keep in mind we have to have extra pre cautionary measure you know.

▪ In the United States, motor-vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among youths from 5 to 24 years of age.

▪ In Japan, road accidents are responsible for more than twice as many deaths as breast cancer and kill four times as many people as prostate cancer.

▪ In Europe, car accidents account for four times as many deaths as homicides do.

THESE alarming statistics highlight one of the inherent dangers of traveling by automobile—speed can kill. And speed with alcohol murders. Thankfully, the risk of accident and injury can be reduced. How is that possible?

Cultivating safe driving habits is a good place to start. Some safety experts claim that 9 out of 10 accidents could be prevented or avoided. Exceeding the posted speed limit, weaving in and out of traffic, tailgating, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and driving a poorly maintained car are just a few examples of unsafe driving habits. Respect for life and love for our fellowman should move us to adopt a cautious and responsible attitude toward operating a motor vehicle.

Seat belts are another simple, but often overlooked, safety measure. According to Tim Hurd, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Transportation, “the safety belt is the most effective way to save your life in a crash. It doubles the likelihood of survival.” For the youngest passengers, the survival rate is nearly tripled if they use child safety seats.

In spite of this, surveys indicate that nearly a third of the occupants of passenger vehicles in the United States do not use seat belts. As a parent, do you see to it that your children are safely strapped into their seats before venturing out? The time that it takes to buckle up is well worth it.

[Footnote]

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends: “Children in rear-facing child seats should not be placed in the front seat of cars equipped with passenger-side air bags. The impact of a deploying air bag striking a rear-facing child seat could result in injury to the child.”

Not contented with your height? Many wishes to add inches and be more taller, but what if stilettos won't even help? I heard about hgh and experts say that it's by far the most effective among other height enhancers. I guess this is what my cousin should try. All her life she wishes to be taller. She'll be jumping if this will work for her, lol!

Allergic?

Was looking for some bargains particularly on allergy bedding because talking about allergies, my sister has it all. I mean she has her asthma, allergic rhinitis and stuff like that. Those dust mites, pollens and allergens makes her go crazy, lol! So anyway since I found great bargains at one of my fave online store, might as well grab some bedding and hopefully send it home soon. It'll be really healthy for her and to those people with allergies too.

Winter by the sea

0 comments
During winter months most of us just want to stay indoors and to laze around in bed. I'm guilty actually, that's why I hate cold weather because it makes me feel tired and sleepy. In order to combat the boredom and laziness, might as well think of ways, I mean activities that can be done even during winter. Any idea to share? Speaking of such, did you know that many people likes going to the beach during this season? They like to escape the cold and visit Myrtle beach accommodations. We all know that Myrtle beach is the top destination for American families but during winter? Well yes! For instance, the Horizon Resort, one of the most lovely Myrtle beach accommodation has this winter monthly rates that allows every guest celebrate the holidays in more special way. The nice thing is that they have the lowest deals and promos available for all!

Wouldn't it be great to end the year having a vacation at Myrtle beach hotel? Oh, if somebody invites me to spend winter at the beach, I won't think twice cause I missed the ocean so bad. Even if it's soooo freezing cold though, lol!

Girls love PURSE!

Am just one of those ladies who loves purses and shoes, lol! The evidence is this purple one i just got the other day at my favorite online store. Was so happy and satisfied with my purchased because it is really true to the reviews I've read that the purse is big and beautiful haha which is what i kinda looking for a purse right now. I have two babies and i need huge bag for my personal stuff and theirs so for comfy for me to have one at the same time i have to have a huge yet stylish bag for diapers in short this is it! lol.

holiday hop!

0 comments
Beach hopping doesn't only happen during summer. On the contrary, many would even prefer going to the beach when everyone else doesn't. And when we talk about the number 1 family beach in America, which is Myrtle beach resorts, who can possibly say no?! Since the holidays is fast approaching, people are thinking of ways on how they can spend it. Avista Resort, the newest Oceanfront Myrtle beach resort has a very nice treat to visitors who want to spend their special time at Myrtle. They have this "sweet treat" that would only last until Dec. 31st. Specially for couples, they will enjoy staying in this beautiful Myrtle beach resort where they are welcomed with chocolates, champagne, and roses upon arriving.

There are still a lot of other vacation packages to choose from but i bet the Oceanfront Myrtle beach resorts top the list. For someone like me who misses the beach so much, it's the best! I wonder when can we possibly visit Myrtle? Now I'm starting to wish and daydream again. Hehe!

Skiing, wanna try?

0 comments
It's one of the many things I've never tried yet. Back home before, when winter was impossible, thought will never see someone ski with my own eyes. But now, during this season, even kids at the neighborhood ski with their own improvised snowboards. They seem so happy every time they go up, down, round and round the slopes. I also heard that many people travel miles away to experience such an adrenalin rush that comes from skiing. Why not? For instance the 2009 Ski in Argentina is fast approaching and many enthusiast across the world wanna participate.

That makes Argentina ski resorts pretty much busy these days. The preparations, activities and also the bookings for the main ski locations is now on going. Cerro Chapelco and Cerro Catedral ski resort for instance. Probably the best place to experience that high and excitement and many can attest to that. So if you're one of the many who wants to be there, better do your booking now or be square. Hmmm.. talking about this stuff makes me wonder if I'll ever learn how to ski. Gosh! I think am too old for that, lol!

traveling, here & there!

One of the best things in life is traveling. To be able to visit other places, meet new people and discover different cultures brings joy and excitement. Although not everyone can afford a grand vacation but I'd like to think that even simple joyrides can be the next best thing. That's what I always ask the husband, to drive us through the country side atleast, lol! But in case you'll have the chance to experience a vacation abroad, where do you wanna go?

Through my browsing, I found a really cool site where you can find the best deals for your travel destinations. Checking on the best places around the globe, from east to west, can be so easy. Plus, it's also the right place to search for the cheapest, most affordable accommodations you can ever imagine! Looking for cheap Singapore hotels? Or how about cheap hotels in Vancouver? Hollywood hotels perhaps or you wanna explore Europe, they have it all.

I'm talking about Cheaper than Hotels website, your one stop shop for all your travel destination needs. Just visit them and see how cool they are, winks!

checking out some baby stuff

0 comments
Back home in the Philippines I have a couple of friends who got married just recently. I'm glad they always keep me updated with their lives, the joy they feel as newly weds and sharing pictures as well. I wish them all the best, oh, and of course I can't wait for them to get pregnant, haha! Nothing beats being a mommy, I always tell them that.

By the way, speaking of such, I almost forget to check on new lightweight strollers for the baby girl. Alexa is growing up so fast, she's so big now. All the while I thought the old one we have here is good enough but apparently we need another. I guess full featured strollers would be better since it's more sturdy, convenient and versatile. And it has a platform where the big brother can ride, cool!

Let me check ShopWiki for these. Am sure they have the widest selection of products, jogging strollers, baby walkers, and everything! What's nice about ShopWiki is that it crawls through every online store like a search engine so pretty much we can find the best deals possible. See ya guys around, winks! Got to go...
