Let me start by saying that I am not very proud using such shampoo filled with harsh chemical that will eventually ruin my hair. This is the only shampoo that I can find in my local grocery store that works with my hair. I used to buy some from a salon but those days are long gone and I rather spend the cash on something else.

It made my hair manageable and shiny. I wish I can the $1.00 once with fruits aroma but those makes my hair feel hard and my scalps very dry and itchy. Even my sister likes them when she came to visit me and forgot her own shampoo.

PanteneI still remember growing up in the boonies, when we run out of shampoo we use the local lemon that was growing in the backyard. We cut them in half and squeeze them in water. Just like making lemonade but we never add sugar to it. The oil from the lemon makes our hair very shiny and manageable. We usually wash our hair with body soap, then after rinsing from it we rinse our hair with the lemon mix then rinse it with water. It does not happen much because my mom usually goes to town once a week.Plus, if we are not careful the lemon mix goes in our eyes and that is very painful. Ahh, those are the

Cyber Charter School (Part 2)

After doing a month on another cyber school other than K12 curriculum, we are definitely sold to K12. The materials are nothing compares to other. Harcourt is a little hard to follow and they are every where. They are not as organize as K12, that all we have to do is click on the link and we are there & no password to put in. Everything is lay out nicely and easy for students and parents to use.

All Math manipulative and Science materials (e.g. cylinder, iron, rocks, balance, thermometer etc.) are provided. My kids loves the Math manipulative like the connecting cubes, counting chips, wood geometrical objects. My Kindergartner was given a cardboard (Calvert) that we need to fold to these shapes. He belong in another cyber school. How cheap they can get and I am pretty sure each cyber school gets the same amount of funding.

We will enroll all of them under K12 curriculum next year. I am familiar with them and I can really say that if you are planning on teaching your children at home under cyber school this is the one. Especially if you are like me, who never done a traditional home schooling before.

Not only they are easy to follow, their customer service is amazing. You can call them 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Yes, you can speak to real live person about any questions you have. They offer their curriculum world wide with your expense of course.

I wanted to have a feel how other cyber school works and now I know. Nothing can beat K12 in my opinion. Other cyber school may have colorful text books but that's all it is.

I believe K12 have schools in every states. Other only have certain grades like Georgia. I think K12 only offered K-8 there from what I saw in their site. We are still trying to move down there and hopefully when we do, they have up to 12 grade added to it.

MS Office not Genuine after 2.5 Years

DH and I both have a copy of this when we went to one of MS launching location when they first came out. Since I am the one who use it the most I put it in my computer and gave the other one to our relatives. I set-up the OutLook for my local internet carrier email when i first install it. After all these years they came up with an update through Service Pack 2, after I update to it this stupid pop-up window kept on appearing telling me that my copy is not genuine.

DH even take off work that day so that we can get a copy for free. Mind you he lost a day pay with the same price as the regular copy when you buy in any electronic stores. So, what exactly they added to Service Pack 2 to make it that my genuine copy all of a sudden not genuine? I am so pissed.

I just started using the calendar feature on OutLook for my kids school as a reminder/appointment book. With so much schedule to meet with their school my cellphone can't keep up because if I am on a call I can't see their schedule and sometimes I schedule their appointments on top of each other. I was also so glad that the calendar make a "ding" sound with the reminder.
MS Office 2007
My time is very valuable and I don't time to call MS to be mad at them. So, I found a solution online posted under Digital Life. I tried a few of the suggestions but the stupid OGAAddin.dll notification keeps coming back even if I deleted it from the list under COM Add-ins. I went to the registry editor instead and delete all of them.

It made me so mad, that I think yelling at customer tech at MS is not suffice. I have an original copy damn it, and I don't have time to play games with them. I'm much happier now that the notification does not pop-up and telling me that I have such and such day to get a genuine. Mind you we don't have a CD, I downloaded my copy from the download site when the Office 2007 first came out. I only have the key code for it.

I know there are plenty of illegal copy out there, but come on don't they have enough money in the world. They want more than they can live off during their lifetime. I should just leave PC and use another type of computer and stop supporting this large corporations but PC is idiot proof. Why use other machine that I don't even know how, it just like driving a manual car. Why stress myself learn how to drive it, if I can easily drive an automatic? I know the logic, but why?
