Moving Around

Author: Joseph Sandoval
We recently moved to a small town in Texas. We were looking up energy rates and came across Amigo Energy Rates in Webster Texas. I have to say that once we figure out all the providers and bills, life will be so much easier. I have never been a fan of moving. We did it a few times when I was a kid and every single time it took me a while to get used to the changes. I think that is natural to some extent, but I was hoping I would not have to put my own kids through it. This is the second time my husband and I have moved. The first time, we did not have kids yet. Right now, our two daughters are probably too young to even remember that we lived somewhere else before. I just worry that we will have to move again with my husband’s new job. The packing and all is just stressful with two little runs running around and then going crazy in the back seat when we made the drive. I know my husband sees I am stressed so the sooner we can get through all the moving duties, the better.

Understanding Chemical Investment Banking

They say that money makes the world go round. While we may not always acknowledge that fact, we still can’t deny that it is right in some point. We cannot survive in this world if we didn’t have money. Indeed, finance and financial matters are things we concern ourselves with, primarily because we need money in order to function and live.

There are many aspects of the financial world. If you try to research and analyze further, you’d find out that there are specific groups that specializes in almost all fields of finance and investments. In fact, some of these fields are least known by most people probably because they don’t even have an idea of its existence.

Take for example chemical investment banking. Did you have any idea, prior to reading this, that there is such a thing? Apparently, it’s a specialized area of finance dealing with chemical and life science companies. These companies are those that might be in need of restructuring and capital raising, among other things.

This special are of finance also handles chemical mergers and acquisitions, especially among companies looking into the possibility of joint ventures to strengthen their existence in the corporate world further. What’s great about this particular type of investment banking is that they help the companies involved handle issues other than the financial side such as environmental liabilities, regulatory constraints, operational carve-outs, and specific chemical sub sectors.

Chickem Macaroni Salad

This is one Filipino dish I can't get enough of. It is very easy to make and of course it reminds me of home. I would like to share the recipe for those who wants to try it.

16 ounces elbow macaroni, cooked
1 lb boneless chicken breast, boiled and cubed
1 ½ cup pineapple chunks
1/2 a cup of sweet relish
1 cup onion
1 cup raisins
1/2 chopped carrots

2 cups mayonnaise (can be 1 cup mayo and 1 cup miracle whip)
1 ½ cup Cheddar cheese, cubed
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Boil chicken breast in water with salt and pepper until it's tender. Drain chicken and shred it in 1 inch length.
Remove the skin and chop carrots
Cook macaroni noodles according to package cooking instructions. Make sure it's el dente. Drain and cool.
Drain pineapple chunks or tidbits.
Finely chop onions
1/2 a cup of chop celery
Combine the macaroni, shredded chicken, pineapple, sweet pickle relish, raisins, shredded cheese, carrots, and slowly add the mayonaisse while mixing all ingredients. (you can put more or less mayo in your salad, all up to you)
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Refrigerate, then serve.

Hurry! Join the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club

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

To those who fill prescriptions at Walgreens under Express Script,  I have bad news for  you.  The contract between Walgreens and Express Script has ended on Dec. 31, 2011. I just thought  you might want to know it,  just to save you from disappointment when you go there. Why? Because you can no longer avail of the savings you have been getting before the dispute of the two companies started. 

This change had already affected many people who are covered by Express Script. Because of that you will need to look for new pharmacy to get your prescriptions.  Now, the good news is that, when you join the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club and you will be able to get discounts. With a $10 family membership fee and a $5 for an individual you will be able to avail of their great savings and discounts. Sounds good? Why not follow Walgreens on Facebook and  Walgreens on Twitter for updates and latest developments on health and medicines? 

Luckily, my family and I do not have any problems filling prescription at Walgreens. We love Walgreens for it is open 24/7, it is convenient and the items other than medications are very affordable, not to mention that  you will find them anywhere. Right now,  Walgreens is donating $1 to every new like on Facebook to their Way to Well Fund Partners. Hurry, join the club and and start saving now!
