The first week in February! UUuuuuhhhhh

Okay, so it's Saturday and I'm online blogging.. there could only be one reason for this: yep.. my hubby is once more at work! I understand he has a lot of work to do so I am not complaining.. instead - I'm blogging!!

So this past week was an strange yet interesting one. It started off last Saturday morning on a high, when I got my new bicycle.. then went low..low..low with the hubby working all weekend long! Now, I am home all day long yet somehow I don't always get around to the things I plan to do. I think this has a lot to do with me 'dilly dallying' on a morning.. so by the time I get up, have my breakfast, tidy up.. it's already afternoon!

This week however I was able to do some interesting things online.. only because my hubby was working late so by the time afternoon came around, I had lots of time to dedicate to my online life. So let me quickly share what I've been up to this past week. I have to hurry because I am going to ride my bicycle with the two Ana's now!

Somehow I got it in my head, about two weeks ago, to try and earn money online. It all started when I discovered GoogleAdsense and everything spiraled from there. So in a nutshell, my online time was spent on the following sites this week:
1) Webanswers - I've written about my obsession with this site before so I won't bother to go into detail once more. You can check out some of the answers that I got awarded. People ask about so many things on this site, that the site becomes addictive. Clicking on the link will take you to the different answers but make sure and right click and put - open in a new tab or else you will leave my blog: Why webanswers?Remember a questionTongue on a frozen polePreferred Travel MethodLearning Something New and Favorite Quote. These are just a few of the many questions and answers out there!

2) Hubpages - Now this is a site I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I recently joined. You can check out my hubpages profile here. Okay so already I've written 3 hubs. Okay this is not many but I like to take my time and try and be creative. You can check out my hubs at: Digital Scrapbooking FreebiesPanasonic Lumix Cameras and Love for DS. Today I jotted down 13 different ideas for future hubs - some on places I've traveled to, some on Brazil, home stuff, recipes etc. If you have any ideas of hubs you'll like to see me write.. leave a comment and let me know! I've met nice people online at hubpages and wow.. there's so many great hubs to read that it can definitely keep you occupied.

3) Yousaytoo For all you bloggers out there, this is a good site to join. Here you can also earn money from GoogleAdsense as well as it promotes your blog. Any postings that you do on your blog, automatically shows up on your yousaytoo profile page. Also, I've made friends there and I like reading what other bloggers are writing.

So that's how I spent my time in cyber space! Believe me, all this reading and writing can be time consuming! And don't forget - I have my wifely duties to perform as well - you know what I mean - cooking, cleaning and washing :-)

Before you go, let me tell you about one last thing. I signed you to do a TESOL online course. This stands for Teaching English as Second or Other Language. I signed you and already completed my first assignment. You should have seen me, making notes like I was back in school. I have a cool notebook so I'm writing away. And then for the assignment.. well I tried my best. I have to send it to my online tutor for him to grade on Monday. Wish me luck! So when I am finished with the TESOL course I will get a certificate. This should help my chances at getting a job here in Brazil to teach English! I'm excited... well provided I pass the course of COURSE :-)

So this week I was very busy... but I'm missing my hubby plenty. I miss our afternoon walks and then our tv time! Anyways soon he'll be back to his regular schedule and then it's Rio Carnival 2010!

Gotta go change to go riding!
Have a wonderful weekend all.

Catholic School Joke

Good Morning Bloggers!!! 
My blog is not about posting jokes but I got this other one this morning by email and I find it is too cute not to share. But don't worry.. I won't be posting jokes all the time. I promise :-) 
Enjoy and hope it puts a smile on your face.. have a great day! 

Until  a child tells you what they are thinking, we can't even begin to imagine how their mind is working....

Little Zachary was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried everything...tutors, mentors, Flash cards, special learning centers.  In short, everything they could think of to help his math.  

Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and enrolled him in the local Catholic school. After the first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying.  

Books and papers were spread out all over the room and little Zachary was hard at work. His mother was amazed. She called him down to dinner. To her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting the books as hard as before.  

This went on for some time, day after day, while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference.  

Finally, little Zachary brought home his report Card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit the books. With great trepidation, His Mom looked at it and to her great surprise, Little Zachary got an 'A' in math. She could no longer hold her curiosity.

She went to his room and said, 'Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?' Little  Zachary looked at her and shook his head, no..

'Well, then,' she replied, Was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms? WHAT WAS  IT?'  

Little Zachary looked at her and  said and said, 'Well, on the first day of school when I saw that guy nailed to the PLUS sign, I knew they weren't fooling  around.'

Housewife Joke - Duties of Wives

I got this joke in my email and decided to share it .. .the three countries in the joke are Guyana - a country in South America but is considered part of the Caribbean and two islands in the Caribbean - Grenada and Trinidad and Tobago.

Enjoy.. hope it makes you smile! Trinis will find this funny!

Duties of wives..

Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.

Terry had married a woman from
 Guyana and bragged that he had told his wife she needed to do all the dishes and housework. He said that it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were all washed and put away.

Jimmie had married a woman from
 Grenada.  He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.

The third man had married a
 Trinidadian girl. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, laundry and ironing twice a week, lawns mowed, windows cleaned and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye.

Smile :-)

Gearing up for Rio Carnival 2010

Well guys, I know that this blog is about 'Life's Moments' so I thought I'd share my excitement with you!

We will be in downtown Rio .. which I know will be madness... so many people!!! But it will be my first time so I am excited.

I am sad my nice Panasonic camera is not working and the other one I have just isn't as great but oh well .. I'll still be taking tons of photos and videos!! And don't worry.. I'll be blogging about that too!

So the preparations for our weekend in Rio have begun... clothes, suntan lotion... next .. organizing the alcohol for the hotel room, snacks.. and I guess I should write down a list!!

Do enjoy your day!

Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives: Pam's Trinidadian Caribbean Kitchen

Trinidadian Restaurant in Seattle.. Check out Pam doing her thing!!!

Had to share this video... great food :-)


Hey Guys, 

Thank goodness the comments thing looks like it is now fixed.. So POST AWAY :-) I missed having comments and being able to comment - that is - if I even had visitors to my blog!! I don't know! 

Well I fixed this problem by doing so many things that I am not sure what worked exactly. I tested it by commenting using Internet Explorer and that worked so I am guessing it had to do with Google Chrome. 

Anyways, just in case others out there are experiencing the same problems this is what I did: 

1) In my Layout Tab - under Edit HTML - I clicked on the button at the bottom "Revert widget templates to default

2) I used my CC cleaner to clear out my cookies on Google Chrome. 

3) If you don't use CC Cleaner you can simply to go the Tools button at the top of Google Chrome, then Options, Under the Hood, Privacy settings - show cookies and website permissions - and then clear your cookies from there :-) Hope this helps!!

4) I also changed some coding in my edit html the other day and I reverted to the original coding to try and fix this problem. However, I think by doing number 1 above, that would also have fixed my coding issue!!

Okay guys so that's it!!! COMMENT AWAY... Please??? :-) Okay PRETTY Please??
