Christmas is Almost Here

How's everyone? how was your weekend? I had a great weekend with my husband doing a lot of things in the house. It was great since we made a lot in teh house. Today we made a little relaxing and went walking in the afternoon. It is a very cold weather outside. Not a lot of snow anymore since it is slowly melting. I guess you know already what day is today? It is the first Sunday of advent. Christmas is almost coming! Last week as I bought some medicine, the drugstore already gave me some calendars as Christmas present. I would have wish they will give me some promotional pens since I also collect different pens. I receive some pens from our bank last year. Oh yeah, I already have a lot of pens but I just love collecting them. Cool hobby huh!! If you need some promotional items, US Imprints is the best site for you!! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!

Thanksgiving in United States
www.wikipedia.org

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, at the end of the harvest season, is an annual American Federal holiday to express thanks for one's material and spiritual possessions.

Most people celebrate by gathering at home with family or friends for a holiday feast. Though the holiday's origins can be traced to harvest festivals which have been celebrated in many cultures since ancient times, the American holiday has religious undertones related to the deliverance of the English settlers by Native Americans after the brutal winter at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The period from Thanksgiving Day through New Year's Day often is called the holiday season.

Some House Improvements

Long time no see from this site of mine..Sorry guys, I am just soooo busy. Sometimes I don't know what to do first. There are just a lot of things to do now especially some household chores everyday. In short I am just very busy both in my online and offline line. And yes, I call myself sometimes "a busy body". As I was cleaning the other room that was emptied two weeks ago, I found out that some wood flooring are getting bad. I mentioned it to my husband so that he can repair it once he got time. I also suggested if we can have hard woods there next time. The idea and products at Build Direct is just so amazing that I am hoping our new floor in our sleeping room will also be changed to hard wood. We only got some laminated woods and I believed true hard woods are always the best. It would be some great house improvements we can do from time to time.

Helping People While Shopping

I did shopped in England. I was surprised that you can see a lot of second hand stores or shops that sells different kinds of goods like clothings, books, dvd's, furniture, shoes and so many more. The best thing with these shops I went into is that through their sales they help poor people from different parts of the world by supporting some organizations. I bought some items at OXFam in Birmingham. I believed by shopping through their shops, we can also help other people in one way or another. This is also the aim of this site www.einegutesache.de. You can also visit aGoodCause.com for more information. Shop now and at the same time help other people too!!

Genetic basis for some birth defects found

CLEVELAND (UPI) -- U.S. medical researchers report they have determined the genetic basis for some birth defects that affect the development of the heart and head.

A multidisciplinary team led by Case Western Reserve University Professor Gary Landreth discovered a common genetic pathway for a number of birth defects such as abnormal development of the jaw, palate and brain.

The researchers said they developed a mouse model of the disorders by removing a gene, ERK2, responsible for the pathway. The scientists, in collaboration with Dr. William Snider at the University of North Carolina, discovered the mice missing the gene for ERK2 in neural crest cells had developmental defects resembling those of human patients with a deletion that includes that gene.

I Have A Great day Today

I really had a great day today. Thanks to my friend Ros and company who toured me in York today, a city near Harrogate where she lives and work. I love this place.If I only have a choice to live here, I will but I can't. I have to go back home. Yesterday on my way here to Harrogate from Birmingham, I admired those Graffiti I found near the fences of the train stations. I don't know exactly what paints they are using there but it is very attractive and nice. I know some people don't admire Graffiti because they are unwanted paintings and for them it looks dirty. I guess spray booth is the best site to visit for this people who love to paint. Well, guys, dinner is ready. I promise to share more photos once I will be back home. Enjoy your evening!

Hope you are all doing fine. As you know Christmas is almost coming. I know some still don't have gift ideas for their husbands, children, friends or anybody special to you.

I won't stay long here..We are going to Cadbury Chocolate Factory today..that's what my friend told me!! I'll see you soon once I will be back to Germany..Have a great day to all!!

The Tower Bridge in London

Image
I am finally here!!..in England...One of the most interesting and most visited spots in London is the Tower Bridge..You might be confused because London Bridge and Tower Bridge are totally different. The London Bridge is not the Tower Bridge. They are two different bridges. The Tower Bridge is the one you usually hear in song..."it is falling down", actually it is the Tower Bridge that is falling down everytime a boat is passing here!! a tiring but great walk we got here!!

I'm Finally in England

Image
I finally visited one of England's very interesting and historical places, The Warwick Castle. But first of all, I would like to express my gratitude to Dae Loy for all the touring and accommodation he offered. It is really very much appreciated. This photo was taken at upon entering Warwick Castle. It is around 40 minutes from Northfiled, Birmingham where I am staying now, in Dae Loloy's beautiful home! We had a great day yesterday as we go around the Castle. There are a lot of things to see here of what history left for us!! hope that you had a great day today as weekend is almost ending!! take care everyone!!

Great Site for Your Maternity Needs!

Hi to everyone! I'm just updating this site to give you some infos especially for pregnant women out there or maybe some idea for women who want to be pregnant. First of all I want to apologize for not visiting you here all the time because I am quite busy with my escapades in England. Let me share today this interesting site. Are you pregnant now and still want to look great even you are pregnant? You simply need a Stylish Maternity Wear! I could still remember my friend at the time she was pregnant. She looked great with the maternity dresses she was wearing before. Pregnant women might think that they are not sexy anymore because of their bulging tummy. I think not. All you just to have are some nice and stylish maternity dresses.

You might want to try the Ingrid and Isabel maternity clothing at Belly dance Maternity. Well, as a woman even thought, I was never pregnant, I found their site very great for pregnant women. How I wish I am pregnant so I can wear sexy and stylish dre…
