Chinese Art in The Hague

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

I was in The Hague to get pick up some papers from the Philippine Embassy. From our house to The Hague is around 1.5 hours ride in a train. I have to stop over two times. When I arrived at The Hague Central Station I had to take a tram going to the Philippine Embassy. One of my blogger friends lives in The Hague. So, I made an appointment with her if we could meet at the Central Station. We have been communicating each other through blog and phone calls for a while. It was nice to meet some blogger friends.
We met at the Central Station around 12:30 p.m. We took our lunch at KFC, Filipinos favorite fastfood restaurant. After that she showed me the city of The Hague. We went in and out the shopping malls. She brought me to the Binnenhof Den Haag where the Netherlands Parliament is housed. We saw lots of visitors from different countries. Lastly we just roamed around the city and took some pictures. She took these pics for me. This is one of the arts which was displayed in one of the places in the city. Every year the city of The Hague invites artists to display their arts. This year's artists were from China.

These pictures were taken last August this year.

The weather was fine and the meeting of a nice friend made the day wonderful. Hope to see her soon. I will post more pictures soon to give you a little perception of The Hague where the Netherlands VIP'S come to meet.

How Do You Play Your Cards?

Saturday, November 12, 2011

So, play your cards wisely!


SocialSpark Deals

Monday, November 7, 2011

It was my first time to see a DEAL tab on my SocialSpark account. Not LEADS but DEALS. I immediately clicked the tab and saw 1 deal. I clicked the deal and it was a Sponsored Tweet deal. Since I did not know what to do with that deal, I sent a ticket to Socialspark. Carri, one of the SocialSpark employees responded right away. She clearly explained what to do with the deal. You can read it here.
So, I put the widget on the sidebar of my blogs. The deal is available to be published into my two blogs: My Life in Holland and Me in the Dutch Society.
The next day when I checked my SocialSpark account another deal was there from Pexagon Technology.
My two blogs now have two widgets from Sponsored tweets and Pexagon Technology deals. But I really do not know how I can earn from these deals. I see a code on each deal. It changes from 99 to 97. What the code stands for, I do not have any idea. Do you?
By the way, does anybody out there know about Sponsored Tweets?


Unfollow YOu

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Few days ago I made a Twitter Account. I am just very curious what Twitter is. I already made 31 tweets. I have followed 171 twitters and only 20 twitters followed me back. For the coming days I will just see how many twitters will follow me back. I have just unfollowed some of the twitters whom I think will never follow me back. I give so I expect to take something back. One of the twitters was angry. LOL. She sent immediately a tweet right after I deleted her name. So, I was able to read her last tweet. Do not be angry, my dear! If I deleted you that means I do not like your attitude in tweeting. I am still in the fase of experimenting how twitter works. If some twitters send stupid or rude tweets of course I delete them, so simple as that.
So do not be angry if I deleted you. This is how twitter works.


No Exception

Friday, November 4, 2011

There are so many people who make excuses. They did not do what you have asked because they had no time. There is always time but you only do not give time to do things which is supposed to be done on time. As the quote goes:

Sometimes you have to do some works which are against your will. Do not make excuses. Doing the work which you do not like or want give you positive and negative results.
What do you think are the positive results, and how about the negative ones?

Did you know ... A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death ... (Creepy)
The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates s*x by ripping the male's head off ... (Honey, I'm home ... What the ...?)
The flea can jump 350 times its body length ... It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.
The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds ... (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)
Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
Butterflies taste with their feet ... (Something I always wanted to know)
Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump ... (Okay, so that would be a good thing)
A cat's urine glows under a black light ... (I wonder how much the government paid to figure that out)
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain ... (I know some people like that)
Starfish have no brains ... (I know some people like that, too)
Polar bears are left-handed ... (Talk about a southpaw)
Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread these crazy facts ...

Too Bad I Can't See It

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

“A blind boy is waiting for someone to drop a coin in his can. He had a board beside him written:
“I’m blind, please feel pity on me.”
A man came and dropped the coin and erased what is written on the board.
Soon the boy heard a lot of coins being dropped in his can.
The boy wondered and asked someone to read what is on the board.
It’s says!

Be thankful for your good eyesight. Take good care of it. Once it is gone, life will change drastically. Appreciate the things around you. Be happy and contented of the things you have. The most wonderful experience in life is seeing the beauty of God's creations.

The Best Way to Get High PR

Friday, October 14, 2011

One of the best ways to be discovered by MR. GOOGLE is have lots of links. Backlinks or exchange links are more important than blog hopping. The more links you have exchanged with the other bloggers the greater chance of being detected by GOOGLE. For amateur bloggers you ought to try this. Type your blog title or tags related to your blog on GOOGLE SEARCH, and you will see lots of pages with the tags you have searched. If I search something about the Dutch Society, I find my blog ME IN THE DUTCH SOCIETY on the first page. Another, important thing is that your BLOG TITLE must be interesting. Just like with my other blog, when someone searches about life in Holland, he can immediately find my blog on GOOGLE's first page.
Check your backlinks populariy. Backlinks or "link popularity" is an important part of off-page SEO. Link popularity is one of the best ways to quantifiably check backlinks and independently measure your website's online awareness.
Check your blog for the backlinks, BACKLINK  ANALYZER. The SearchBliss Backlink Analyzer will report the total backlinks for your website and list the top (up to 100) URLs by value linking to your site.
I have stop now because I will do some blog hopping but this time for exchange links.


Pic of the Week---FB profile pic

Monday, October 10, 2011

When I add pictures in my posts I sometimes edit them using Photobucket to add some texts or make a collage. Last month one of my friends used one of my FB old profile photos and made this one.

So sweet of her!
I do not know the program she used in making this. Imikimi program I think. There are lots of beautiful designs in making your pictures more attractive and colorful.
Picjoke is familiar to me because I had once a paidpost from them. They also have many designs which are also nice. I like their billboard designs. It is awesome!
I am now busy trying different pictures and designs. Experimenting the different designs have filled-in my boring hours.
Try this too! Make your pictures extra captivating.


LiFe Before the Computer

Sunday, October 9, 2011

* MEMORY was something that you lost with age
* An APPLICATION was for employment
* A PROGRAM was on TV show
* A CURSOR used profanity
* A KEYBOARD was a piano
* A WEB was a spider's home
* A VIRUS was the flu
* A CD was a bank account
* A HARD DRIVE was a long trip on the road
* A MOUSE PAD was where a mouse lived

What's the life now with all these things about computer?
Do computers help us or destroy our lives?
Can we live without computers?


Shopping With My Daughter

Saturday, October 8, 2011

It was not pleasant at all.
Me and my daughter went to the city last Saturday to shop for my daughter's school bag. She did not like her bag anymore because of the fairy designs. It does not fit in her age anymore. We took a bus going to the city. It is just five minutes with the bus. While we were waiting for the bus in the bus stop, there was a girl who was talking to her friends in Manhattan via cellphone. Her loud voice caught the attention of the other passengers. It is always irritating and annoying when you hear the conversations of  other people in their cellphones especially in a public place. I heard everything they were talking about. They are in Long Island because one of their friends will get married. The couple hired a Nassau county limo to bring them to the hotel where the wedding was held. A nice wedding car, indeed. Renting a limo with a driver is the most comfortable way of visiting a new place. The driver guides you wherever you go. So, no other comfort you can expect than having a limo with a driver. They took a Suffolk county limo in going to the eastern part of Long Island.
I did not know how the conversations ended because we had to step out. For me this attitude of talking aloud in the cellphone is a public disturbance ;) Is not it annoying and disturbing hearing those laughs and yells?
We roamed around the city for almost three hours, in and out the shopping stores. I found bags which she did not like and vice versa. We had a lot of arguments in selecting a school bag. She found some bags too big and too small. It was already quarter after three I told her, "This is the last store if you cannot find something we have to go home because I am already tired." Luckily she was able to find the bag she liked in that store.
It was a tiresome afternoon!


STEVE JOBS, an incredible global innovator

Thursday, October 6, 2011

.... a great loss in the computer world. He had an enormous contributions to our communication technology. The world is very thankful for his innovations. He taught us new ways to connect and communicate. He put the world at our fingertips, internet in our pocket. His ideas are great and amazing!

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life."
Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
- Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011)

Steve, you are always in our hands.
You are always be remembered.


My Netbook

Saturday, October 1, 2011

I am still satisfied using my new netbook. This was given to me by my hubby as a birthday gift. ACER is a known brand of netbooks. It is not expensive and all that I need is in this netbook. So far this is one of the best gifts I ever had. Samsung Galaxy Tab is a very good one but I find it difficult to type. I prefer to have a keyboard when I write something. If I would have Samsung Galaxy Tab, maybe I would keep on cleaning the screen which I do not want. Scratches or dirts on the screen will irritate me. That is why I prefer to have a netbook which I can type easily without leaving any dirts on the screen.
I bring my netbook wherever I go, in the garden, bedroom, kitchen etc. Before I go to bed I check my emails, blogs and not to be forgotten my fb. Since I have this netbook my blogging interest has been stimulated.

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point - that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative - self-value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it's a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them...


FunNY MonDaY--- DocToR's Advice

Monday, September 26, 2011

A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office. After the checkup, the doctor took the wife aside and told her, "If you don't do the following, your husband will lose his will to live and surely die."

Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast and send him off to work in a good mood.
At lunch time, make him a warm, nutritious meal and put him in a good frame of mind before he goes back to work.
For dinner, fix especially nice meals selected from his favorite foods and don't burden him with household chores or problems.
On the way home, the husband asked his wife what the doctor had told her.
She replied, "You're going to die."

FunNy MonDaY---Great Advice to Pass on to Your Daughters

Monday, September 19, 2011

1. Don't imagine you can change a man - unless he's in diapers.

2. What do you do if your boyfriend walks-out? You shut the door.

3. Never let your man's mind wander - it's too little to be out alone.

4. Men are all the same - they just have different faces, so that you can tell them apart.

5. Definition of a bachelor; a man who has missed the opportunity to make some woman miserable.

6. Women don't make fools of men - most of them are the do-it-yourself types.

7. Best way to get a man to do something, is to suggest they are too old for it.

8. If you want a committed man, look in a mental hospital.

9. The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years. Even in biblical times, men wouldn't ask for directions.

10. If he asks what sort of books you're interested in, tell him checkbooks.

Sad to say, all men are created equal...

Which one do you like?
I like no. 10. Since I do not like reading, thus I would prefer a bundle of checkbooks. I would tell my daughter to go for a guy with checkbooks then she will be financially secured. LOL!


Everyday is a New Day

Saturday, September 17, 2011

When we start to count flowers, we cease to count weeds. When we start to count blessings, we cease to count needs. When we start to count laughter, we cease to count tears. When we start to count happy memories, we cease to count years. It is a new day, face life with renewed strength and strong faith in God's providence. 

Have a  Wonderful Saturday!


Cool Wedding Bands

Friday, September 16, 2011

There are so many different types of wedding bands out there. I have been looking at them lately and have narrowed down a couple types I think are pretty cool. A lot of people are turning to tungsten rings for their wedding bands. They look great and are virtually scratch resistant. That makes them really popular. Plus the price is great. They have kind of replaced titanium rings as the go to ring. Titanium are much more light weight than tungsten but they scratch kind of easily. You do have to make sure you get a tungsten ring that does not contain cobalt in them. Cobalt will oxidize to your hand and make the ring very unattractive.
Another fairly new type of rings are palladium rings. Palladium is a metal from the same category as platinum. They are very similar. In fact palladium is more rare than platinum or there is less of it out there because it hasn’t been as valued as platinum in the past. A lot of times the value of a metal is what drives the market. So if it is seemingly valuable than a lot of people will want it and drive the demand up.


Blogroll Must be Visible

Exchange links are very important for bloggers. The more backlinks you have, the better. High traffic means high page rank, and more opps to come. I really appreciate if bloggers want to exlinks with me. It is sometimes disappointing to know when a blogger added your blog but you could not find their blogroll or you had to go through the whole blog to find the list. Blogroll must be visible so that when visitors come, they can also visit the blogs in the blogroll. Some bloggers left a message: your link has been added. When you visit them you cannot find your blog or their blogroll. Every now and then I clean up my blogroll to check if the blogs are still active or my blog still in their list, if not then I delete them in my blog list. Blogs which are non-active for a year, I delete them in my list. It would be fair if bloggers who wanted to exchange links that they leave a message in the chatbox or leave a comment to let the blog owner knows that his blog has been added.
Please be fair!


The Value of Money

Put Yourself in other's Shoes...

Always put yourself in others' shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
It probably hurts the other person, too.



Missed Opps from Advertisers

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Lots of tasks I miss this time in my other blog "My Life in Holland". In my previous post about the problem I had with my other blog made me crazy. Last night I clicked an ad by InPostLinks hoping that the ad will be posted in my other blog "Me in the Dutch Society". But I was so disappointed because the advertiser wanted the ad to be posted on my blog "My Life in Holland". I can write a post but I cannot publish it. I cannot open my blog, "the server was not found". So I missed that opp. That is one of the disadvantages of InPostLinks that you do not know which blog the advertisers want their ad to be posted. You will know once you reserved the opps.

I hope that I can fix this problem soon. There are already tips I received what to do inorder to restore my blog.


Some Rules to Remember

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

1. Money cannot buy happiness but its more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.
2. Forgive your enemy but remember the bastard's name.
3. Help someone when they are in trouble and they will remember you when they're in trouble again.
4. Many people are alive only because its illegal to shoot them.
5. Alcohol does not solve any problems, but then again, neither does milk.

I like the first rule. It is better to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle. LOL! Which rule do you like?


So Upset...I Cannot Find My other BLog :(

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

It was more than a week ago that I could not find my blog "MY LIFE IN HOLLAND" on the net. The last time I checked it was last August 27. It was still there. When I checked it the following day, I had this page " Server not found". Since we went on vacation for a week, I did not contact the domain provider. I thought my blog will be back online as soon as we were back from a short vacation. When we arrived home I immediately checked my blog but the same problem occured. So, my hubby sent an email to the domain provider. They checked their system and found nothing. The blog is still on the net. They did not know what happened. They could not trace it out. I searched on the net about a possible solution to my problem. I found variety of forums and websites discussing and giving the possible answers to my problem. Many said: remove the sitemeter. I do not have any sitemeter. I removed THE LIVE TRAFFIC FEED and other unnecessary links but still it did not work. I can still log in to my dashboard.
I do not know what to do. I am so upset because that blog has its own domain and has PR 3. This is the third time that my blog cannot be find.
Does anybody out there know the solution  to this problem?
Have you encountered a problem like this?
I need your help badly. I would be very glad if you could help me. I will consider that help be a very valuable one.

Pic of the Week---Flying Temple

The Pagoda, by Efteling described as a "flying temple".

100 visitors can ride the pagoda at a time and is distributed over its two sides to maintain the balance of the cabin itself. The rotating cabin has a 15 meter high pagoda on top of it.
Ride length: 4 minutes
Ride capacity: 1500 passengers/ hour

It was very nice to see the whole park and the neighbouring places from the top---60 meters from the ground.


Unpredictable Event

You borrow money for many reasons, to pay your overdue utility bills, unexpected expenses or car repairs, emergency travel expenses, useful appliance in your household needs to be fixed or replaced, etc.

I have just chatted with my friend via FB about their vacation in our fatherland. She told me that they are financially unstable this time after having a 5-week vacation in her hometown. They had a big problem during their stay in her parents place. Her husband got sick. Her parents' family doctor advised her to confined her husband to the hospital. Upon hearing the advice of the doctor, she was depressed thinking about the beautiful plans for their vacation which will be cancelled. The transportation fares from her parents house to the hospital where her husband stayed for four days were not in their budget. Adding up all the small expenses during her husband's stay in the hospital makes their financially situation very tight. They really ran out of budget. She was not able to bring any souvenirs for her in-laws. It was one of the most unforgettable and expensive vacations they ever had.

They need to have a loan so that they can survive in their basic needs like food, kids allowance, etc. for the next month expenses until their financial situation will be stable. I told her about payday loans online. There are a lot of companies which serve a short time credit. 
You apply online by completing the form and wait for a few minutes to be approved. Once it is approved you get your money in your bank account quickly and securely on the same day. The biggest advantage of applying for payday loans online is that you will get a quick approval and instant cash in your bank account. Payday loans are fast, easy and convenient. Whether you need $200, $1,000 or more, payday loans will help you to get the quick cash you need to cover life's unexpected expenses. Hassle free, no worries, no stress, no unnecessary paper works. Only two simple things needed when you apply for payday loans, your job and your bank account. If you are a US citizen, continuously employed and 18 years of age or older, then you definitely might be qualified for any payday loan.
When you desperately need to get some cash, you must get payday loan.

I am very eager to chat with my friend again to see how they are doing with their financial problems. I know they can pay their loan on time because they both work.


Opp from SocialSpark

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Yesterday I wrote my second opp this year from SocialSpark. It's been a long time I have not received any opps from them. I was glad that I had one yesterday. It was 1,485 points. I have to reach 5,000 points so that I can withdraw it but anyway if I cannot reach the threshold which is 5,000 points I will just get it and have to pay 200 points as a fine for early withdrawal.

Being A Woman

Can you carry a 7 pound baby in your stomach for 9 months? 
Can you cook, clean and talk on the phone at the same time? 
Can you burn your forehead with a curling iron and not complain? 
Can you walk all day in 5-inch heels? 
Can you cry all night then wake up the next morning like everything is okay? 
Remember guys, women are only helpless until their nail polish dries :) 

Are you proud of being a WOMAN?


Submitting a Post in Socialspark and How to Place the Video Embed Code

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Click this link to know the steps in submitting a post in Socialspark.
When a link has been successfully inserted into your content, it will turn from gray to green.

Here are the steps on how to embed a video code in your post.

Once the content editor is open you will place the video embed code in the editor.
To find the embed code (usually the advertiser supplies you with it in the Opp description, but not always) go to youtube to view the video. I would do this in a new tab.

From the youtube page, click the "share" button (usually right below the video) and next a link will appear. You don't want that link, you want the embed code. Click the "embed" button. Copy that code.

Now go back to your SocialSpark account, and in the content editor make sure you are viewing the editor in the "source" section not the "ABC" section. Find where in your post you want the video to appear. Place your cursor there, and paste the embed code you copied from youtube. Press "submit content for review". Viola! All done.
From Carri, one of the employees in Socialspark.

I posted this one hoping that this will help you in submitting your opp in Socialspark to prevent post rejection. I keep this one as a guide whenever I will submit a post in Socialspark. I seldom get opps from them so I sometimes forget how to submit an opp.

Spams, Viruses and Nasty Videos on FB

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I often open my fb, maybe 5 times a day when I am at home. I find it very interesting to see pictures and hear the latest news from my family and friends in the Philippines. But fb has recently reported to have many spams, nasty videos and viruses.

FACEBOOK has 5 new viruses (so far..) 

1. Get 5000 FBK credits DO NOT OPEN IT. 

2. If you get a notification that a friend reported you for offensive behavior DO NOT OPEN IT. 

3. If you get a notice of a photo tag DO NOT OPEN it. 

4. Message from your chat mates saying click this link DO NOT OPEN IT. 

5.Crash at ALTON TOWERS DO NOT OPEN IT. These are bad viruses and will crash your computer. 
There are many computer programmers who have nothing to do with their expertise. They use their knowledge in a destructive way by sending virus to paralyze your computer system but not only that. How about those spams in your email box. It is very annoying to see your email box in the morning with more than 20 spams. You cannot immediately delete because you do not know if there are important mails in-between those mails. So, you have to check the senders or subjects. It is a waste of time checking all your mails and selecting which one should be deleted. 
Last month there were lots of nasty videos spreading using your fb account. I saw it first from my sister's account. I was really shocked. She did not know that because she seldom opens her account. I deleted the video right away.
This is how we live now in this computerized universe. So, dance with the music.

How do you live with those miserable things online?


Funny Monday...Business one-liners

Monday, August 22, 2011

Here are some inventive phrases from creative online business programs.

If you cannot fix it, feature it.

If you cannot get your work done in a 24-hour day, then work nights!

If you cannot measure output, then you measure input.

If you consult enough experts, you can confirm any opinion.

If you did what you always did, you'll get what you always got.

If you do a job too well, you will get stuck with it.

If you do something right once, someone will ask you to do it again.

If you do not care where you are, then you aren't lost.

If you do not change direction, you are likely to end up where you are headed.

Perhaps you could use more online hospitality management degree skills instead.!

I have experienced these two incidents. 
"If you do a job too well, you will get stuck with it."
"If you do something right once, someone will ask you to do it again."
The chance is that you will not grow professionally if you do the same work everyday. On the other side, no more headaches because you already know what you are doing. LOL!
How about you?

I forgot how to make a blog badge. It was a year ago that I made my first badge. I wanted to make a badge for my new meme "Pic in the Week". It was really a big help that I put the link of the post "How to Make a Blog Badge" in the sidebar. I do not have to go through my archieve to find the post.
So, if you think that some of your posts can be of great help in the future put them at the sidebar.


Spend Wisely

A House but not a Home

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

With money you can buy a house but not a home; 
a clock but not time; 
a bed but not sleep; 
a book but not knowledge; 
see a doctor but not good health;
buy a position but not respect;
blood but not life; 
acquaintance but not a friend.


My New Header

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Having a blog is just like having a tot. You buy new things for him like new clothes, shoes etc. In a blog sometimes you want something new like new template, layout, font and colors etc. It was already more than a year that I made this blog. Since then I never did add or remove anything. Maybe it is time to have a new look. So, I changed my header and added a new meme "Pic of the Week". The picture in the header was taken last April on my birthday. The netbook was one of the birthday gifts. It was an unexpected gift from my hubby. I was so happy that I can blog and visit my fb anytime I want. I can bring it everywhere. We have three PCs at home. One is in the living room, one is in my daughter's room and one is in the attic. When my son plays computer games he uses the PC in the living room so I cannot use it. Thus, my hubby decided to buy a netbook for me. 
I use this picture as my header because it fits to the blog title "Blogging is  My New Hobby". 


The ONLY Evidence of the Past

Saturday, August 13, 2011

My new meme "Pic of the Week". I will post a picture every week which I think gives beautiful and meaningful memories. They are not just simple things but they are one of my treasured possessions.

Thursday, August 4, 2011

I was trying to get a domain for my other blog "My Life in Holland". I heard about Many bloggers get their domain name at So, I created an account at I chose for the domain name. I was almost done but I encountered a problem in paying the domain name. I paid it with paypal but still they needed a creditcard. Paypal must be coupled with a creditcard which I do not understand. I do not have any credit card. I thought paypal would be enough.
Does anybody out there who knows an affordable domain where I can pay via Paypal?

God doesn't have a Blackberry or an iPhone, but He is my favorite contact. 
He doesn't have Facebook, but He is my best friend. 
He doesn't have Twitter, but I follow Him, 
and He doesn't have internet, but I am connected to Him. 
And even if He has a great communication service, his customer service never puts me on hold.

I can contact Him anytime of the day 24/7 through my prayers. He is always connected to everyone. He answers all my queries and give solutions to my problems. HE is my everything.  HE is Great!
Who is He in your Life? How do you contact Him?

A Woman Strength

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

A strong woman knows she has strength enough for her journey, but a woman of strength knows that it is in her journey where she will become strong.

Woman, we are most wonderful creatures on earth. Our strength/power to bring kids on earth and raise them up. Our daily encounters and trials make us strong for the people we love...husband and kids.

Are you this kind of woman who is strong enough to face all the daily trials and responsibilities as woman, mother and wife?

Once there was a millionaire, who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful daughter who was single. One day he decides to throw a huge party, and during the party he announces, “My dear guests . . . I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge alive!”

As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large splash!! There was one guy in the pool swimming with all he could and screaming out of fear. The crowd cheered him on as he kept stroking as though he was running for his life. Finally, he made it to the other side with only a torn shirt and some minor injuries. The millionaire was impressed.

He said, “My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn’t think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain. Do you want my daughter or the one million dollars?”

The guy says, “Listen, I don’t want your money, nor do I want your daughter! I want the person who pushed me in that water!”

Okay, Coconut Man, Moonheads, and me
You ready?

Seems like everybody's got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the sale comes first,
And the truth comes second.
Just stop, for a minute and

Why is everybody so serious?
Acting so damn mysterious
You got shades on you eyes
And you heels so high
That you can't even have a good time
Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
We're playing with love tonight.

It's not about the money, money, money,
We don't need you money, money, money.
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.
Ain't about (uh) Cha-Ching-Cha-Ching.
Ain't about the (yeah) Ba-Bling-Ba-Bling.
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

We need to take it back in time,
When music made us all unite.
And it wasn't low blows and video hoes,
Am I the only one gettin'... tired?

Why is everybody so obsessed?
Money can't buy us happiness
Can we all slow down and enjoy right now
Guarantee we'll be feeling alright.

Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
We're playing with love tonight.

It's not about the money, money, money,
