I am at the salon right now, but I am doing nothing since I don't have any clients that have appointments for the day but I am waiting for walk-ins people to come by and don't have much luck till this time. So I check online as usual on my blogsite and facebook account. I also check on some money-making website but I did not have opportunities to post something to make money. But instead I discovered that changes of my page rank on google on my payperpost account. It was on rank 3 last night I checked it and now it is back to zero! I feel bad about it and wonder why it happened to my page. I been posting good awhile now and I think I am getting better on it. I hope that my page rank will go back to what it was and I can get more opportunity again from payperpost or inpostlinks.

Cyber Monday

It is Monday and yeah a Cyber Monday for the people here in the States. And what is the cyber Monday all about? It is a marketing term for the Monday immediately following Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, created by companies to persuade people to shop online. The term made its debut on November 28, 2005 in a press release entitled "'Cyber Monday' Quickly Becoming One of the Biggest Online Shopping Days of the Year". According to the Research 2005 eHoliday Mood Study, "77 percent of online retailers said that their sales increased substantially last year on the Monday after Thanksgiving, a trend that is driving serious online discounts and promotions on Cyber Monday this year (2005)". In 2006, announced that it launched the portal, a one-stop shop for Cyber Monday deals. In 2009, comScore reported that consumers spent $887M online on Cyber Monday (excluding travel), the second highest spending day of 2009. Cyber Monday is also used as a marketing term in Canada, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Germany. In these countries, with the exception of Canada, Cyber Monday sales last for eight days, typically from the last Monday in November to the first Monday in December. The meaning is based on wikipedia.

Winter for me!

The weather today was not so bad. The sunshines this morning and it’s quite warm for the time of the year, but is still cold for me who don’t used to this winter temperature. I also miss the Philippines every time I feel the cold weather in this side of the world. I remember how I complained back in my country on how hot the weather is, I usually bring umbrella when it is almost 12 noon in the day because the sun’s heat hurts my skin. But when I get her I miss the HEAT of the sun on my skin when I was back in Philippines. How I wish the weather were the same here in states. When the sun is out and the weather is warm, it is like you energy is high too and you like to do everything, but when it is cold I feel like I am always tired and wants to also be in bed and take a nap. Back then I usually go with my cousins and friends near the creek at home and do some walking or we do camping with them using our favorite camping gear. It’s so much fun when you like the weather.

Black Friday

I’m home all alone again while watching movies on HD this Saturday night. My husband is playing music out of town tonight and I don’t have the guts to go with him in this very cold night (for him it is not cold yet). So yesterday was the day after Thanksgiving which they called it here a Black Friday. I heard that “Black Friday” online specifically on facebook. Someone mention that she is ready to go shopping on a Black Friday. Well, wondering what it is, I asked my husband about it and he said it is the Friday after Thanksgiving day and it day that stores will have big discounts. So will check what wikipedia will tell us about this Black Friday:
Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. Especially popular in the United States, the event is spreading to other nations such as Canada and Australia. On this day, many retailers open very early, often at 4 a.m., or earlier, and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season. Black Friday is not actually a holiday, but many employers give their employees the day off, increasing the number of potential shoppers. It has routinely been the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005, although news reports, which at that time were inaccurate, have described it as the busiest shopping day of the year for a much longer period of time.

Thanksgiving Eve

It’s almost one o’clock in the morning on Thursday, it is just means that officially Thanksgiving Day is started! So I want to greet you all again a Happy Thanksgiving. Maybe you wonder why I am still online and writing this blog post. We’ll my husband and I don’t usually sleep till like midnight but we usually just laying down in bed while waiting for our eyes to close to sleep. But tonight, I am still awake since I am waiting for my husband to get home from playing music at the near bar in town. Their band plays music for the Thanksgiving Eve and he surely done playing this time but they need to teardown their music equipments and load it up to their van so they can get home. I usually go with them but tonight I did not have the power to go outside. Yeah I say “power”, coz I think I need power to be in the cold weather. It is just the coldest night we been had since we got back from the hot weather in the Philippines. It’s not new to me since I been here the last year’s winter but I think I’m body is still adjusting the cold for the winter! I’m here inside the house and I can still feel the cold from the outside even our heater is on. When I looked outside it’s so foggy too but I just discovered something that our window needs a new shutters and on Black Friday might be the best time to get discount for these things.

What is Thanksgiving?

Do you know what the people in United State of America going to celebrate this week? Well, if you are here in the State right now or you know someone from the here, I know you know what is the big celebration about. Yeah! It is Thanksgiving Day on Thursday. I had been asking about it to my husband. He told me it started when the settlers first get together. And then I also asked a new friend about that Thanksgiving and she said it is when the Indians meet with the people from England. But before I thought it is all about when the snow weather start and the celebration. Well, so I will try wikipedia and search will see what it says.

Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving Day, currently celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November, has been an annual tradition in the United States since 1863. Thanksgiving was historically a religious observation to give thanks to God.

The event that Americans commonly call the first Thanksgiving was celebrated to give thanks to God for helping the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony survive their first brutal winter in New England. The first Thanksgiving feast lasted three days, providing enough food for 53 pilgrims and 90 Native Americans. The feast consisted of fish (cod, eels, and bass) and shellfish (clams, lobster, and mussels), wild fowl (ducks, geese, swans, and turkey), venison, berries and fruit, vegetables (peas, pumpkin, beetroot and possibly, wild or cultivated onion), harvest grains (barley and wheat), and the Three Sisters: beans, dried Indian maize or corn, and squash.

Small Business

Since I started my small nail business in the town, I think a lot of things to do so people will know about it. I will make my own business card, posters that my husband posted in every part of the town and in the neighboring area. And as I mentioned that I posted it on facebook and has it’s own page for everyone to like and have can have track about the nail shop. I am also thinking to build a new website for the business, if I can find a cheap web host or even a free one just for the starting business. I know there’s hosting site that I can find just for now as the building process of the business. I also want to make my own business logo for the sake of promoting easily to everybody. As I observed when you have your own logo it is much more easier for everyone to recognize your products or the services you offered. As for example for me, I am doing nail shop business, if someone will see a logo of nails or a pedicure picture then they will surely know it is all about nails or about beauty service. I look online for logo and I found Logo Design Packages that are designed by professionals. I’m thinking of getting one as part of the business building up process.

Mae's Nails

Today, November 22, 2010 I started my small business in our little town in Augusta, Kentucky. As I mentioned on my past post that I plan to get a space in a salon for a nail business. I officially opened it today and did my first client. She wanted a manicure and a spa pedicure, which I think I did good. She was so nice to me and I get pleased to do my job right. I am on appointment basis, so anyone who needs their nails to be done should call or text my phone to set time for it. Sometimes I will do walk-in clients but I prefer to those making appointments. I will be making my own gift certificate that everyone likes to have as present for the coming holidays. I hope all will work well for my small business and me. Wish me luck! Check out my page on facebook and search on “Mae’s Nails” and don't forget to like it.

Sleeping Problem

I am right here and still awake! It’s now 6:02AM, thanks to my PC clock because our wall clock is not working and I need to get one from hermle clocks for a change to a better one. I am still online and waiting for my eyes to get tired so I can go back to sleep. So I checked wikipedia about sleeping problem, though I know it is because of the 13 hours difference from our Philippine vacation but still I am anxious to know about it! I end up reading about “Sleep apnea”. It is a sleep disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing, during sleep. Each pause in breathing, called an apnea, can last from a few seconds to minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour. Similarly, each abnormally low breathing event is called a hypopnea. Sleep apnea is diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram, or "sleep study".

There are three forms of sleep apnea: central (CSA), obstructive (OSA), and complex or mixed sleep apnea. Regardless of type, an individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening. Sleep apnea is recognized as a problem by others witnessing the individual during episodes or is suspected because of its effects on the body (sequelae). Symptoms may be present for years (or even decades) without identification, during which time the sufferer may become conditioned to the daytime sleepiness and fatigue associated with significant levels of sleep disturbance.

For sure this is not our case since we can’t sleep, while apnea is problem while you are sleeping!

online income

It’s been a hard time for to adjust our sleeping hours. Since Wednesday we did not sleep all throughout the night. I know it’s because we just got back from the Philippines and had the 13 hours difference in our clock here in Kentucky. Well we been up since 3:30 AM and is online for almost 2 hours now! My husband was online at our other computer in the other room too but he is now trying to go back to sleep at the couch here in our living room while I am still here doing my blogging. I got lucky too because I did posted some post to earn money! I’m sure all of you know which site I am talking about and I don’t want to mention it here. You can leave a comment and ask me about it if you want to have a little bit more income.

Business Techniques

I will be starting my work in a salon on Monday as a nail technician. In preparation of my business, I am trying to let everyone know about it! Well, there is a lot of kind of advertisement that my husband and I are thinking about. One of these is making posters and posts it to some area where there is many chances that it can be seen. Also I made on own facebook page only for the nail business and you can find it by searching “Mae’s Nails". I’m thinking now to make my own website but I need to check about the site to host on my web page. Do you have any idea about a website hosting? Based on wikipedia, a web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own or lease for use by their clients as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. While I am still deciding what website hosting service I will get, I will also figure out more techniques to do on how to make my business successful. You can share your thoughts and leave me comments here.

Back in Kentucky

We are back from the Philippines, arrived yesterday afternoon after very long flights. Well, I got comment from my last post regarding the third picture of Church in Simala that I posted. He was surprised with the picture saying that he doesn’t know that there is a place like that in Philippines. I have a lot of pictures from that Church and I will post here some more. You can also read more about that church on my past post about a year ago in here “Simala in Cebu”.

Update from Philippines

My husband and I are still here in the Philippines. We have been enjoying our vacation with my family and friends. I went to the cemetery with my family to visit our departed relatives and loved ones in the observance of the all souls day. We also went swimming at the beach here in Iligan city in our first week in the country. And then I and my husband with my sister decided to went to Cebu City to visit my cousin and also to see the Miraculous Mama Mary at one of the province in Cebu City. It was the third time that I visited the church, on my last visits that church was not fully built yet but now it is almost done and it’s a huge church! We say prayers and petitions then went to my cousin’s house and stayed there for 2 days. We also went to beach while we were in Cebu City, you can tell it with my skin because it’s getting darker from all the beach swimming we had. Then we went to mall when we went back to the City proper and had a little shopping with my sister while my husband was watching movie at a movie house inside the mall. Well, today we just got back from Cebu City! Will write more updates here soon and pictures to share to you.
