Aqueous Engineered Cleaning Systems.

One of my favorite TV shows to watch is How It’s Made on Science Channel. It’s basically a documentary series showing how common, everyday items and industrial products are manufactured. It’s quite interesting, it would always leave me spellbound especially with the use of those neat machinery and industrial equipments. In one of their episodes, I found it amazing how those brilliant machineries could turn a thick aluminum sheet into thin aluminum foils that we use in the kitchen. They are so precise, neat, fast and reliable. If I didn’t know any better, I would say they are more brilliant than human being but since men made those fancy machines, obviously we are still superior compared to them.

As a matter of fact, like so many things in life, these industrial equipments and machinery could also break if not handled well or taken care of properly. I must admit that when I first heard about an industrial parts washer, my initial reaction was, "You gotta be kiddin' me!" I mean I thought only clothes and dishes go in the wash, lol! But apparently even those machinery parts, be it big or small, could use a little cleaning as part of maintenance routine. Since they are expensive and hard to replace, you don't just use any washer though. It's necessary to choose the right kind for your needs. Companies that have been in the industry of engineering and quality manufacturing should be experts when it comes to stuff like this. So whether you've just started acquiring industrial machinery for your business or been doing this for quite a while, it does not hurt to look into trusted engineering cleaning system companies. You might wanna start with AEC Systems, LLC.

My new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Tablet!

I never thought I'd ever need a tablet. Besides the fact that I hardly keep up with the latest gadget out there, being a stay at home mom then I really didn't think I could use one. I have a laptop for all my computer needs so there really wasn't a need for a tablet or one of those techie smart phones. But that had to change when I went back to work. Being in the office 8 hours a day does not mean I have to cut off my ties to the social networking world. I do get two 15-minute breaks and a 30-minute lunch break so I needed to have something to use to keep up with what's happening out there. So I thought the need to have my very own tablet was well-warranted.

With all the IPAD hype and all, obviously that was my first choice, to get an IPAD. But I wanted something handy, small, but still can deliver what I need as far as playing games, facebook, picture and video uploading, watching movies and all other cool apps are concerned. So I was deliberating between the IPAD Mini or the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. I did my research and I have decided that the Galaxy Note 8 Tablet should be my new toy. Now the higher price tag as compared to IPAD Mini kinda threw me off for a little bit. I asked myself if this tablet is really worth paying $50-70 dollars more than the IPad Mini. And I think my honest answer would be "Yes, Definitely!"

Now what do I like about this tablet. Running a 1.6GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos 4 Quad processor with 2GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note 8 is fast and powerful. The expandable memory is a huge plus for me as well. It's great for storing videos,pictures and music. The display looks pretty sharp and crisp, while the screen size and aspect ratio combined with the broadly curved corners and thin top and bottom bezels make it a very comfortable device to hold in landscape orientation while watching video or playing a game. Another winner feature for me is the S-Pen. This is the only one of these tablets designed for use with a stylus and the S Pen software is well integrated, with dedicated programmes S Note and S Planner, but you can also use it to draw on web pages and documents. Awesome, isn't it? Another cool feature of this table is the Dual Screen View. Simply put, you can have two apps on the screen at once, so you could watch a video and write in a document at the same time.

I am sure there are still more cool features in this table that I have yet to explore. I am just glad that I ended up buying Galaxy Note 8 as my first tablet. For $399.00 dollars, yeah, it's pretty pricey but very much well worth it if you ask me.

Are you living the American Dream?

What does living the American Dream mean to you? To most people perhaps, it means having a white-picket fence house, driving an SUV, getting married at 20 and having 2 or 3 kids. I remember when we apply for a housing loan last year, the loan manager asked us what properties did we own. She started asking if we have a boat, RV, motorbike and the like, to which we replied “None” to everything, lol! Then she said “Not living the American Dream?” Well, if that’s the norm for the American Dream, then we probably aren’t, but at least we’re not indebted up to our eyeballs, lol! That to me is living the American nightmare, lol! Sadly, a lot of people are in this situation. But that’s not the end of the world for them I guess. Because here in the US, you can avail the service of free bankruptcy lawyers. Now that’s probably not the wisest route to take but if you think you’d be better off filing a bankruptcy, then make sure you know the game and hire a lawyer.
