The Eagle has landed

After 24 hours of waiting and worrying about my brother in cold Chicago, he finally arrived in Maine. The aircraft touched-down a couple of minutes earlier so it only took me about 5 minutes of waiting in the airport
We left the house a little late actually but got in the airport just in time when a plane flew above us as we traversed the airport road.

5 reasons to choose an above ground pool for your family

There are many pools that you can choose from, but the best one for your family would have to be the above ground pool. Not only are these pools safer and easier to maintain, but they are also cheaper and easier to install. They typically aren’t as big as in-ground pools, but that is often an advantage for many families. Above ground pools offer you the perfect balance when it comes to fun and practicality.

Lower Costs

A good above ground pool is going to cost you several thousand dollars. That’s much more than an inflatable pool, but it’s less than half the price of an in-ground pool. The majority of in-ground pools cost tens of thousands of dollars, which is often too much for the average family.

Maine Winter Survival Kit

My baby brother is coming to Maine. Yup, this is Japol's first trip to the U.S. and of all seasons he chose to come in the middle of this brutally long and cold winter in New England.

So, as a good sistah, I made preparations. I need to get all the stuff he needs to survive winter in Maine. Oh boy, if only I can write about my whole feeling... it would be too graphic. Well, yes I am exaggerating. Anyway, I gathered all the necessary stuff that he needs and here they are...
I got him a face mask (the Ninja style) to cover his face from the harsh wind. A hat to cover his newly shaved head. (I told him to not shave his head so that he could have some hair to protect him from cold... but did he listen? Of course not!) A pair of gloves for his hands. A fleece scarf. An ear muff. And 3 pairs of wool socks. These are all necessary to keep him warm.
