March is the most fruitful month for us. I guess not many of you here knew that we have bunch of fruit bearing trees in our backyard. My father-in-law planted them several years ago to provide shade and extra food for his family. Now we are bearing the fruit of his labor.
Take a look at the mangoes we harvest a few days ago.
Maybe you’re wondering how we harvest them. Well, my husband went up the tree and snatches them with a net. Here are some photos of him up in the tree.
Can you spot him?
There he is!
Well, one thing I can say. It’s really nice to have lots of trees around the house especially fruit bearing trees because not only they give my family food and shade they also help us give a cool and fresh air to breath.
Green is good for our Earth. Think Green

Managing your mobile technology requires more thought than it once did, especially in today’s crowded market. There are more ways than ever to manage your mobile communications needs, prompting reflection on which approaches might serve you best. Pay as you go options, sometimes referred to simply as PAYG plans, are well-suited for mobile users who use minimal services each month. Calls and texts are the primary uses for low-volume mobile phone users, so PAYG alternatives are attractive for users who use no data services.
Contract plans requiring set monthly payments furnish better options for users who want to be well-connected, but also wish to avoid heavy costs up-front. The conveniently billed plans are structured around usage limits, which users must be careful to maintain. Overages are billed at much higher rates than services included within the plans. Most plans carry initial commitments of at least one year, though lower rates are sometimes extended to users willing to commit to lengthier contracts.
Sim-only plans are interesting options for some users; particularly those who own or don’t mind buying a phone outright. The plans offer many of the freedoms and flexibilities of PAYG plans at rates below many of the long-term monthly contract plans.
GSM Networks – UK mobile networks utilize GSM networks, allowing voice and data to work simultaneously. In the United States, some networks use CDMA platforms, which is an important consideration for consumers looking for friendly international features in their mobile plans.
GSM networks use Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) technology to tie your information to a card, which allows users to shift between networks as needed. Your phone number, contact information, and list of primary contacts are all functions of your SIM card, furnishing lots of flexibility to change between phones and networks.
If you are happy with you mobile phone, and own it outright, a SIM-only plan might furnish precisely the service levels you require. When a contract expires, for example, you are faced with the opportunity to upgrade to newer handset or additional features. Many are creatures of habit though, so there is no shame in keeping your current phone and simply modifying your plan to a SIM-only version.
Likewise, if you have your eye on emerging technology, which hasn’t yet made it to the marketplace, a SIM-only plan might be just the way to go; bridging the gap between your current device and the upgrade you are eyeing. As an added benefit, SIM-only plans are the best value, in terms of tariffs and excess plan charges.
Most SIM-only plans are not tied to lengthy commitments, so thirty-day renewal options are attractive to many users. Flexibility is not the only benefit either, since SIM-only plans also carry lower prices. Think about conventional plans and the phones attached to contracts. Someone is ultimately paying for the hardware, which is used to stimulate consumers into buying lengthy service plans. In reality, you pay for these phones each time you renew your contract, whether you like it or not. SIM-only plans take the phones out of the equation, enabling you to pay for only the services provided.
Your monthly tariff covers the cost of your phone, with most major monthly plans, but it also covers the extra costs companies take-on when other users do not stay connected long enough to cover the costs of their phones. In many ways, the system resembles insurance payments, which are made to cover the whole pool of industry costs, rather than just the services you use. SIM-only plans break the cycle, furnishing cost effective alternatives for some smartphone users.

With more and more business conducted online every day, it is important to create a strong online presence. The biggest online presence any business or individual has is through their website. This is the first thing people see and it essentially defines who you are.
Your website is how users get to know about the product or service you offer. When your website is designed well, someone can find exactly what they want quickly and easily. If someone cannot find what they want quickly, they will leave your site to find information elsewhere. Website design is pertinent if you want your online presence to be a success.
Thinking of the following when building a successful website will ensure your website design is what people want to see.
1. Web hosting service support
You might want to first look into having a professional web host provider that will match your requirements for your website. There are so many different web hosting companies to choose from and every one of them have their own pros and cons. Think carefully and ensure that you choose the best company after reading reviews, as it will affect your visitors trying to load and access your website.
Your website needs to look good. This is the first impression people will see of your business or service and you must make it appealing. The web design of the site should showcase what is important and then lead to subsidiary items. Everything should be easily accessed and be as user friendly as possible. You can build trust by providing a clean and professional web design. A polished website will show that you care and are serious about your website.
People want to see things that please them, and are more likely to further explore a site online that catches their eye. Adding images and video content to any website is important. When you add visual appeal, people will be interested in reading content on your site.
It is vital that the content on your website is organized. Users are going to want to get to what they want quickly and if it is hard to navigate, they will look elsewhere for what they need. Remember that with a website, you have mere seconds for someone to find what they want.
Your home page should clearly state your purpose and each page should be easily found from this spot. Every page on your site should link back to your home page and other pages easily so users have to do as little as possible.
5. Consistent Engaging Content
When you provide content that is engaging and consistent, you will continue to drive more people to your site. Without new content, a great website design will only go so far. Users will quickly get bored with your site and go to other websites to keep them entertained. Constantly adding new creative content every week will ensure that people continue to use your site for their needs. Whether you are promoting a business or offering goods or services, new content added regularly will engage your users and share your content with others. This will create an avalanche of visits to your site and keep users coming back for more.
Before building a website, take a look around the internet at different sites you are interested in. If you can find what you want quickly and easily, the website has been designed well. Study the way these websites work and keep their designs in mind when creating your own well-designed site that will ensure success in your endeavors.

A friend of mine sent me this beautiful and touching message that directly hit my heart.
Many parents took their kids for granted because they are busy doing a living ( I am one of them). Not knowing that their kids won’t be kids forever.
I thank God that somehow it was not too late for me to realize.
