Collision Repair Experts

While driving home from college, we were wondering while the traffic was slow. After few minutes, we saw police cars, 911 mobile and fire trucks. There was a collision; six-car crash injured 6 people.

According to the report, four vehicles were waiting a left turn when a west-bound vehicle slammed into the last of the four vehicles, rolled over and landed on a car that had just turned right.

Speaking of car accidents, my husband told me that the most common reasons for accidents are driving under the influence of alcohol and driving without paying attention. I commented that since it was day time, it is unlikely that the driver was drunk, so it might be that he does not pay attention.

Thinking of collision repairs, we are planning to visit one shop. Actually our car was collided with another car when my husband was reversing at the supermarket’s parking lot a month ago and it was not fix yet. I found the Collision Repair Experts website, I just enter your city or zip code and search for the nearest shop. They have the largest network of collision repair experts that make your car back to pre-accident condition.

This tree has needle-like branches. It is native to the South Pacific and was introduced in 1882 on Kaua'i to serve as a windbreak from the salt sprays. In addition. these trees help prevent erosion - not so much by intercepting rainfall directly as by laying down a thick mat of litter that protects the soil surface.

Exotic Live Corals and Fishes


Last week, I visited one of the long term facilities here in Hawaii. I was sitting in the receiving area where I saw a big aquarium. The water was so clear, plenty of ornaments, different kinds of fishes swimming, eating and resting. I also noticed that there were few elderly residents enjoyed watching the aquarium.

Do you have an aquarium at home? I am sure you have plenty of ornaments and fishes. We had an aquarium before. I felt it was a rewarding hobby and it gives long hours of pleasure. As if my tiredness and stress from work was gone every time I watched my aquarium. When I left home for a vacation, I ask my husband to take care of pets. But when I came home the aquarium was empty, fishes died…… sad news.

Now, I am planning to start again and get a bigger size aquarium, new fishes and ornaments. I would like to try and buy salt water fish online for more variety of fishes. It sounds impossible but it is true. There are also exotic live corals, live rocks and other saltwater aquarium equipments. It comes with 14 days live guarantee, free shipping for orders over $225 and shipped via Fedex overnight. Why don’t we try to buy live coral, it adds more life in our aquarium. If you live in LA, you can visit their huge Los Angeles fish store.

I even read 50th birthday (for my mama) and 1st birthday party ideas (for my nephew) sites for more resources. I can imagine how fun and enjoyable that day would be.

Last January 5, 2009, Mama died for heart attack. The birthday party that I was planning to give to my mother is just a fantasy now. But as what I promised, I will still go home on her birthday and will still have the celebration without her physical appearance because we knew that she is always with us inside our hearts…… I love you mama…….

Hmmm SLeep Mama... Sleep...Hmmm..
I like to kiss your lips again and feel the touch of your sweet embrace.
How do I ever go on without you there's no place to belong
When someday loves will gonna lead you back to me
But did it does with an empty heart,

And if time is on our side,
There will be no tears to cry on down the road.
There's one thing I can't deny it's not goodbye.
If you think I'm strong enough to make it through.
And rise above when rains fall down.
Well, It's so hard to be strong when you've been missing somebody so long.
Its just a matter of time I'm sure.
With time takes time and I can't hold on.
So wont you try as hard as you can with my broken heart together again.
Till the day I let you go.
Till we say our next hello,
Its not goodbye mama.
