My picky eater: Ben

ha ha ha, I really love to hear my picky eater saying: Mom egg is what category Mom, I said that is protein..Looking at his plate and said: Wow! I have protein (egg), grains(oatmeal), vegetable(1/2cup broccoli), an apple(fruits), a glass of sunny D orange juice.. So I will say I eat healthy... then I said: Yes you eat healthy.

Yesterday I did not offer them milk, Ben is freaking out, I dont have dairy today Mom. I said, go drink a glass of milk. He asked how much I need for my dairy products and i said, you dont need lots of dairy. If you can eat 5 servings of vegetables then you are very healthy boy. I am so lucky since he ate the dark green veges. Spinach and broccoli has almost all the vitamins needed for the body. I say HORRAH! I won. Now, we are looking for trying to introduce the carrots. I told him to start trying to eat carrots either raw or cook. He refused but I will see how it goes.

Apartment Rental in Calgary Alberta Canada

I have so many friends living in Calgary Alberta Canada. Some of them owned a house and some of them renting a place. There are so many apartments for rent in Calgary and I saw this rental place. You might like to visit this and maybe you can get some information here and be interested to rent.

Calgary is one of the best place to live in Canada and mind you, they have lots of snow there. Sometimes, I am so nosy in the web. Since we are here in Japan right now and will be back in the states in another 10 months. Then I was surfing in the web.. oh wow! I really like to live this place., look on this link. Living in a 5-star - oh boy! oh boy!!! I wished!

Own Business

Written by my friend Teodoro Martin

When I decided to start my own home business it was a big risk for me – I’d been in corporate law for years and I was making a lot of money so it was hard for me to give that up for something totally unpredictable and not know whether or not I’d make any money much less enough. I am grateful to say that things have turned around, though, and that I’m actually doing better than I ever thought I’d be doing. One of the keys to my success I think is that I don’t have much overhead and I didn’t have to buy many things to get this business of the ground. I got a internet connection and a new laptop as well as somebusiness cardsbut that was about it – I haven’t had to take out ads or rent office space or anything like that. I love that I’m able to do what I love and be at home when my husband gets here with dinner ready for him to eat!
