Acne Products

Acne happens when oil glands come to life around puberty, stimulated by hormones from the adrenal glands of both boys and girls. This oil stimulates bacteria which live on everyone's skin and generally cause no problems to multiply and cause surrounding tissues to become inflamed. Have you ever had acne issues before? Acne problem is one of my younger brother’s nightmares right now. He is not allowed to eat chicken meat because he will get a break-out of pimples all over his face and his back. So I’m thinking I might get him some a acne products to help get rid of his acne problem.

ABC Wednesday: O is for Orca

I've missed joining ABC Wednesday for 2 weeks. Oh boy, pardon me if I wasn't able to participate. Anyhow, here's my entry for this week. O is for ORCA! Here are some of Shamu's action shots! Photos were taken at SeaWorld San Antonio.
The killer whale (Orcinus orca), commonly referred to as the orca, and less commonly as the blackfish, is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from the frigid Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas.
T Killer whales as a species have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as sea lions, seals, walruses and even large whales.
Mama whale and the baby whale. Shamu and companion killer whales eat 200 pounds each day.

Black Friday Sale

How are you familiar with Black Friday? Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving Day in the United States, marking the beginning of the retail Christmas shopping season. The term Black Friday is a takeoff on the accounting terminology of “in the black”, which means making a profit – black ink for profit, red ink for losses. The secret of getting great deals is buying presents during the Black Friday sale. The Black Friday sale is a one time big shopping event that only happens in a year. I am sure most people here in America are excited to shop after thanksgiving day. People are trying to fall in line just to get in the store as early as possible. And are trying to get the best deals that the store offers. But I think it would be a great if those people who wants to save money would consider shopping online during the Black Friday sale.

Mellow Yellow Monday

Would you dare to ride this eel-lectrifying Steel Eel roller coaster ride? Neither hubby and I did not get a chance to ride on it because we only have a short period of time to roam around at SeaWorld. It's ridiculous because they open the gate @ 10:00 am and close at 6:00 pm. Plus we have an hour lunch break.
SeaWorld San Antonio boasts the Southwest's first hypercoaster, the "Steel Eel," with its pulse-pounding, 15-story initial drop, speeds of almost 65 mph and non-stop peaks, valleys and camelbacks that create maximum "air time," or weightlessness - a hypercoaster's signature feature. This "eel-lectrifying," state-of-the-art coaster zooms along 3,700 feet of track and covers the serpentine route in approximately two minutes.
