I recently switch too, from contract to Straight Talk’s no contract mobile phone plan and I am getting the same minutes, txt, and web data on monthly basis for half the price as the contract plan that I used to have. That means more savings and I can do anything with it, which is saving all the money I save from my mobile bills towards a holiday and it will not be long until I get one!

Anyway, to tell you about Straight talk, this is a no contract mobile plan which has got everything you need, with no surprise bills, and no credit checks.

Plumbing Repair Expert

If you got a problem with plumbing in your household, and want to fix it yourself in order to save money, well think again! I recently had a bad experience with do it yourself plumbing, you see, my kitchen drainage clogged up and my husband tried fixing it by himself thinking he could do it and could save us up a bit of money, but due to not having any experience with plumbing and how the drainage system works, he just made the problem worst! The water leaks and got a soaking wet kitchen floor with a bit of a smell, and to top it up, still cannot make use of the sink. After 6 hours fiddling with the pipes, my husband got fed up and told me I can now call an expert to fix it, wow it was music to my ears! I phoned up a plumbing service and the next day a plumber came over to fix it. Took him an hour to get the job done and he tidied up and left without any marks or spills of water on the kitchen floor. I would say it is a job well done and was surprised to see that the bill is not expensive at all! That is what we should have done in the first place, to call an expert to do the job. It could have save us all the hassles with water leaks and not being able to use the kitchen sink for a whole day. Now, if you got a plumbing problem, my advice is go get a plumbing expert to fix it!

Puffer Fish AKA Buriring

My brother took this photo when he saw a local fisherman selling it in the Philippines. You see, in some parts of Asia they cook this fish and eat it, but that would be after taking out the poison on this fish.

I have not tried it and would probably not to anyway because they said this fish contains tetrodotoxin which can cause paralysis or even death to a person eating it. I also found out on Wikipedia that this maple or puffer fish is said to be the second most poisonous vertebrate in the world, after the Golden poison frog.

I knew some people who have eaten this kind of fish and they said it really taste good, but the question is, would you take the risk in eating this kind of fish?

Review: Rosetta Business Translation Services London

There are many translation agencies in London, but so far I have only known one that really rings a bell and that is Rosetta Translation Agency. This company has been renowned for giving high-quality document translations and has been chosen by most major companies here in the UK such as BBC, Ofsted, Barclays, Dell, Epson, BP, LLOYDS and many more.

Now, I have not been a customer of this company yet, but I have a friend who works for a law firm and that friend of mine said they always use Rosetta agency when it comes to the legal translation of their documents because the services offered by this agency was always spot on! She added that Rosetta translation service is always fair when it comes to pricing, all documents were done promptly and quickly, and most of all, they never got any problems with the translated documents. They have been using this translation agency for some time now and the conclusion is that, yes! She does recommend this agency to anyone looking for a fast and good value for money translation service.

Legal translation is only one of Rosetta translation expertise, so you do not have to worry is you are looking for financial, technical or medical translation as they offer those too! They do many of languages from all over the world and the cleaver thing about Rosetta translation service is that they not only translate from foreign language to English and English to a foreign language but they can also do it on other foreign language to another foreign language, like Chinese to Spanish or Dutch to Hindi, all you need to do is ask them by sending them an email or calling their provided number on their website or simply fill up the free no obligation quote. Wish you all the best!

Paracetamol limit

My family and I have recently recovered from a flu, which only lasted 3 days treating ourselves at home with rest and some paracetamols. Well, here is the thing when I bought the paracetamols. I actually needed more than 3 boxes of paracetamol since there were 3 of us on the family who has got the flu, but when I checked out at the till (cashier), I was told that I could only buy 2 boxes, which is a total of 32 pieces tablets. And I ask why?, the cashier replied by law they are only allowed to sell up to 32 pcs tablets of paracetamol to each person, but when I told her I needed 3 since there were 3 of us in the family who got a flu, she said I could get more if I would pay it separately, so I did! Anyway, I am just glad I did not went on another till and another queue that time as I was not really well and was starting to think that this restriction is just a hassle. Well, they said this was implemented to cut down suicides due to paracetamol overdose; did it actually cut down the overdose cases since this was implemented? Just curious, and hope it did.

My Review on bendy hair rollers for hair curling

I got these bendy rollers a month ago and I only used it once due to the following reasons:

• It does not curl my hair – I have a very think straight hair and it does not really curl my hair. Tried it on my wet hair because according to the seller’s description it is best to put it on when your hair is a little damp or wet. I do admit that it would create a little bit of wave, but after an hour my hair will be back to straight again.

• Some of the bendy rollers Styrofoam that covers the metal got torn after the first use, and some of it cannot be used again.

These are actually very cheap, so it is understandable that you get what you paid for. Anyway, it might work on thin hair or if you leave it overnight. The only good thing I can see about this product is that you don’t have to use any heat or chemical on your hair.

New Deal Fun Auction Site

I just joined in this new auction website called and was very intrigue on this. I do not know if you have already heard about this or have already joined in too but based on what I saw, it looks like a good place to get a bargain! This is similar to ebay, but on this one you have to purchase the bids first before you can start bidding on a particular item on their auction page. I had manage to get 45 bids worth $27 in which I would like to try first on smaller items before purchasing a larger number of bids and bidding on more expensive things. Well, I am still trying to figure out how to do this, so might as well try it in a small amount first. Now, unlike the other auction website, this one only offers brand new items. I have seen some really good ones like iPad’s, iPhone’s, Kindles, Laptops, LED TV’s, to PS3 that are sold for a very low price. In fact, a moment ago I have seen a 16BG iPhone 4 unlocked sold on their auction for just $129.14. Now that is just brilliant!

The good thing about this is that this has no weekly or monthly cap, you got the option to bid or buy the product you want, and they have a win guarantee that if you do not win in the first 24 hours, all the bids are then rest. I have been researching about this and what people are saying on this Deal Fun and found some good comments like you could get a really cheap laptop, TV’s and so on, and some also added that you could easily get in touch with their customer service which is said that the average response time is only 15 minutes. I have also seen an article about it at consumer news today and you can have a read on it too about how Puts a Exciting Twist on Online Shopping.

Buzz lightyear toy

My little girl is a toy story fan and she got a couple of toy story toy collection bought from different shops online. I think the most expensive toy story toy she got is the Toy Story 3 Jet Pack Buzz Lightyear which my husband and I gave to her last Christmas. It was worth £50 way back then, durable toy, although I wished I got her the earlier version with the pop-out wings, spaceship box, 65 phrases, glow-in-the-dark trim, and an interactive talk back communicator as it is more like what Andy had on the film. Anyway, this Toy Story Talking Buzz Lightyear earlier version is still selling for £36 on Amazon, but just yesterday I saw it on Morrisons for £17! Yes I can’t believe how cheap it is there, considering I paid £50 for my daughter’s buzzlightyear. There was only one left there, so I ask my daughter if she want that one, and then she replied no because she already got a buzzlightyear at home.

7 Web Sites To Find Acting Jobs And Auditions

Aspiring actors need to find auditions and acting jobs if they are ever going to break into the business or if they want to keep working in it. There are more resources now than ever before for locating these jobs and auditions and many of these resources can be found online. Here are 7 web sites to find acting jobs and auditions, what to look for in sites like this, and what they can do for you.

Number Of Jobs And Auditions Listed

All of these sites are going to list jobs and auditions but whenever you look at sites like this you want to look at how many jobs and auditions they have to advertise. You know as an actor that getting jobs is about putting yourself out there and heading to as many auditions as you can so you want resources that advertise a lot of auditions. You don't want to waste your time going from site to site if there are only a few jobs listed on each one.

Up-To-Date Listings

You need current listings. The best web sites for acting jobs and auditions are updated constantly so that you always know what opportunities are available to you right now. It is true that some casting calls are offered over an extended period of time but you want web sites that remove opportunities once they are no longer options. Going to auditions is hard enough without mistakenly trying to seek out auditions that have already been closed.

Helpful Search Options

You want to be able to search through all the opportunities on these web sites easily. You are not going to be ideally suited for every acting job that comes out so you don't want to have to sort through every listing. Web sites that feature a wide range of helpful search options are the best because then you can focus your efforts on auditions that are most likely to lead to acting jobs.

Web Site Appearance

With sites like this, you want to stop to think about how they present themselves. The appearance of web sites of this type will often tell you the quality of the content. If someone created a web site to advertise auditions but did not take the time to make that web site look professional then you have to question how much work was put into assembling the audition listings.

Acting Advice

Even thought these sites are geared toward providing listings of acting job auditions it is nice when they also provide some resources on acting. The right acting advice may just point you toward the right acting coach but this can be invaluable. These web sites don't need to limit content to audition listings.

Tips On Landing Acting Jobs

The best of these web sites give you tips on landing acting jobs. That is why you are seeking out these sites, after all. They should do all that they can to help you get the acting jobs that you find on these sites.

Getting rid of ear wax

My husband usually got an earwax problem once in every two years, resulting to his hear loss and he usually sees a doctor to have it syringe, but recently he just did it by himself using an Otex ear drops and a bulb syringe that came along with it. It is actually called otex express combi pack and is for adults and children over 12 years of age. The procedure is very easy and I think it is the same as any other make of ear wax drops, but the only reason why my husband got this is that it came with a syringe.

The ear wax drops bottle has a little nozzle on it when opened, so all he did is tilt his head sideways and squeeze the ear drops into his ear. He kept his head tilted for a few minutes and then wiped the outer ear with a tissue after he did it. He did this procedure, twice daily for 3 days and on the 4th day, he uses the syringe to get the wax off his ear, and it worked well! The good thing is that he said it did not hurt when he uses the syringe and got his hearing back straight away after the wax was off his ears.

Got a picture here of the box:

Net10 Unlimited mobile phone plan: The no contract mobile phone plan

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I just got to tell you about this offer I recently saw on video that made me see the Light as how brilliant this unlimited mobile service is from NET10. With its no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks you can get an unlimited plan with unlimited talk, unlimited txt, and web/email for just $50 a month without any hidden fees! Yes, that means a flat rate of $50 each month, and it’s so easy to join! All you have to do is buy an affordable NET10 phone and have it activated, then test it by sending a txt message, test call, or download a ringtone, and then buy and add an airtime card, then, your set!

By the way, I had a look at their mobile phones and they all came from good brands like LG, Motorola, Nokia, Kyocera and Samsung. All modern, easy to use, and most of all very affordable! I think this NET10 unlimited plan is ideal for businesses in terms of saving money and any business personnel could really make use of the unlimited things. In terms of personal use, I would recommend that you check out their other cheaper deals like the $15 a month for 200 minutes or their pay as you go plans. Of course, you have to base it on how you are going to use your phone, so I suggest that you check out the details of the plans they currently are offering.  Now, I have seen a lot of NET10 videos on and here are some of those that I want to share with you: A video interview of a real NET10 customer and a cute NET10 commercial.
