Affordable Electronics at Deals Direct

>> Wednesday, October 26, 2011

The holiday shopping madness has already started. It is evident here in our city as there are signage that announce pre-holiday sales as early as the beginning of this month. We frequent a certain mall almost every weekend and we did check out a sale they were holding, not to shop but to just see. And we were impressed at how low the prices of some items are. We are looking and doing a canvass of some basic household appliances  so that we’ll have an idea on how much we’ll be needing if in case we need to shop in a year or two. We’ve realized that it is best to shop for such things during the last quarter of the year since obviously, this is the season of sales and promos. 

But for those who are looking for great deals all year round, check out Deals Direct where quality products are offered at very low prices. Deals Direct is the best place to shop for quality electronics like led tvs online for great prices. One does not need to wait for the Christmas holiday sales to purchase gadgets and appliances in order to shop and save. Feeling a little bit skeptic about online shopping? With Deals Direct, there is no need to worry. Many shoppers have testified at how easy and reliable Deals Direct’s service is. And they also have various payment methods so shopping is truly a breeze.

We have an upcoming wedding early next month and though we’ve been frequenting the malls during weekends, I still haven’t shopped for a nice dress for the said event. My husband was patient enough when I go through the displays however, I feel more at ease shopping for (non) essentials sans him. Of course, it’s a different thing when I am buying some indoor hdtv antennas. But when it comes to shoes, bags or even dresses, I prefer to shop alone. Or with my girl or gay friends. I do not know. Maybe because I feel guilty for overspending on such things? Hahahaha!


Halloween Plans

Almost everyone’s busy preparing for the Halloween. In fact, my friends’ kids have their costumes ready. On the other hand, we are preparing for trip! It was scheduled during my daughter’s semestral break and we all look forward to travelling again. Upon coming home, we’re scheduled to meet another friend whom we haven’t seen for a while. And before the month ends, we hope to attend a story-telling plus cupcake decorating activity sponsored by a bookstore in the metro. So there. We have a Halloween activity after all. Though I don’t think there’ll be any costume as I am not up for it. Too lazy to look for one. Hahahaha!

What are your plans for Halloween?


Don’t Drink and Drive!

Very early this morning, I woke up to a very loud crash of a car to a building just outside our window. It was relatively dark but I saw some smoke when I looked. I also saw the driver and a passenger pulling out someone from the car. I thought they ran over someone. The car’s music was so loud that despite the distance, I was able to hear it. It was a horrible sight. Later, some men arrived, the police, I presume.

When we were leaving for my daughter’s school, we passed by the wreckage and saw how damaged the car was. I just hope that it is covered by an insurance which is as good as the motorhome insurance that a friend of mine got for their motor home.

When I got back from bringing my kid to school, I saw the car being towed away. I also learned that no one was ran over, but it was an injured passenger. It seems that it was a bad case of drinking and driving which is absolutely a very irresponsible act. I hope it was a lesson learned on their part.


New Parents and the Internet

As a first-time parent some many years ago, I knew that I want to become a good one. I got some tips from my mom, my aunts, doctors and friends who have been there but most of the things I know, I learned from reading parenting books and magazines. However, they were limited as there was no book store in our small city. That’s why I am grateful for the Internet since it was a provider of almost everything that a new parent should know.

I subscribed to and until now, I receive updates regarding my daughter’s developmental growth.

It even has a forum where parents get to ask other parents about their various concerns – from breastfeeding to finding a good

austin allergy doctor to trick-or-treating activities.

It is an amazing community for moms and of moms. And I am grateful for websites like Baby Center where help and valuable information are provided so new parents need not guess.


Are You on Skype?

I have always been a late bloomer. And to prove my point, let me tell you that I’ve only get to download and seriously use Skype just this year. I have heard about it and maybe created an account some years ago but since I had no use for it, I eventually forgot it. But now that I live miles and miles away from my friends, it seems to be the most convenient tool to communicate with them without spending too much.

Just this morning, prior to working online,, I had a good and refreshing talk with an old friend through Skype. It was she who insisted that I download Skype and I am grateful that I followed her advice. We talked for about an hour and it felt good to hear her again as I am in high need for adult conversation. LOL!

Thank you, Skype!


OSHA Training Courses

>> Tuesday, October 4, 2011

The osha training course was created by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) – an agency under the Department of Labor - to provide workers training needed for safety on the job.

Objectives of OSHA Training Courses:
(1) help workers identify unsafe conditions at their job location and
(2) learn safe techniques for performing their specific job.

There are different types of training courses; the ones being the most popular are the 10-hour and 30-hour training programs.

Here are its main differences:

1. Course length.
2. The 30-hour program is designed to provide students with an in-depth look at the various hazards and the corresponding prevention methods needed in their workplace. The 10-hour program merely touches on all these aspects.
3. The 10-hour program is designed for regular employee; the 30-hour training course is more fit for managers and supervisors.

You can take the courses in person or online. The live OSHA 10 hour online training course is typically taught over two five-hour sessions on different days. Workers taking a live course are also dependent on the class schedule in their area. The online version is available anytime, anyplace as long as there is Internet connection. Participants can learn and work at their own paces and take up to six months to review the course and complete it. Online courses are OSHA recognized, it is their way of making sure more workers are educated and certified.

Some of the advantages of taking the training program online:

1. Workers that need a card quickly can start immediately and finish in as little as 10 hours.

2. Workers with full-time commitments can take parts of the course at night or on the weekend.

3. Workers can learn at their own pace.

4. The material can be reviewed as much as they need to.

5. Courses are designed to be simple and user-friendly. Workers who are not computer-savvy can easily navigate their way through the course materials.

6. Workers do not need to be away from the job to take the course online.

You can take the online certification courses through and are owned and operated by ClickSafety, Inc, an ATI company. ClickSafety is headquartered in Alamo, California and is comprised of industry professionals, Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) and Certified Safety Professionals (CSP).
