Have you ever had your hard drive fail you or had your computer crash and lost many of your important files? I  know I've had it happen more times than I'd like to think about, and had to rewrite many a book report for school thanks to a faulty hard drive.

At hot pot and sushi

Hubby and I tried something new today and its the Hot Pot 'N Sushi. They offer a large variety of sushi as well as hot Japanese food.

The place was busy when we came in and I saw a bunch of sushi running in a conveyor type where anyone can grab any type of sushi they like. I ordered the beef subiyaki while hubby got the chicken teriyaki. Plus the plates of sushi. I am not really a fan of sushi but this place is the best way try new things! I am sure you will never regret it. The prices were affordable too! Best when you come in on their happy hour, only  $1 per plate with purchase of a drink during 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm from Sunday through Thursday. I will definitely come back on time! lol.

Dragon roll, pot sticker, volcano roll
beef subiyaki and chicken teriyaki
All together...yummy!

Dad and Technology

***Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays***

Dad recently asked me to help them get a little more technologically advanced so that led me to to look into satellite internet. They live kind of out in the middle of nowhere so it was their only option but he doesn’t even know how to use a computer yet so we’re going to take it one step at a time. I’m really excited to teach him although I hope I have the patience to get into the nitty gritty with him – mom’s going to be a whole different story! I also helped him look into cable since he loves sports and doesn’t get a lot of channels now and he’s even been talking about buying a digital camera. I asked him who he was and what he’d done with my father! My folks are pretty technology resistantso I’m surprised he’s even talking about doing something like this but hey, if he’s willing to try I’m certainly willing to help to the best of my limited technological ability! That’s what I’m here for!

Our typical dinner

Every night when I'm at home and not tired, I always cook dinner for hubby. The dinner is ready and served when he arrive home. We usually have our dinner at 12 midnight since he got off late from work. I cooked  pork ribs soup with corn and rice last night since hubby is been requesting this the past couple days. Its one of his favorite Filipino dish :).

My Coke Rewards

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of My Coke Rewards for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'd like to talk about My Coke Rewards. Anyone who drinks Coke products should go online to My Coke rewards for schools and register so you can build points for your favorite school. Those points will help Coke refresh activities and play for its students. Also, from July 13 through September 30, Sprite is giving away 25 playgrounds, worth $25,000, to schools and are giving consumers who purchase and enter a code from any package of Sprite/Sprite Zero an entry into the sweepstakes to help their school win. In addition, every three points donated to the school through the Sprite Spark Parks for Schools sweepstakes will give the school additional chances. Any new school that registers will be given a chance to win. I strongly urge any school that has not registered to go online and register your school so that members of your community along with Coke can make things happen for your school. All that people will need to do is purchase their favorite participating Coca-Cola products (there are 15 brands), and enter the codes online at for points. From there, they can pick your school and donate the number of points that they desire, and your school can use those points for rewards like athletic equipment, classroom supplies, and more. If you have a school you would like to register, all you have to do is find a School Coordinator to manage your account. Have them go to and click on "Register Today" to find your school and go through the registration process. Once that is done, talk it up! Let parents and community members know about the My Coke Rewards program and to donate their points. There are so many people that drink Coke products, the points can really add up fast!
