Working From Home with the Samsung Galaxy SIII and Some Business Apps #VZWSM

With the addition of some new technology, the Samsung Galaxy SIII to be exact, to our household, we have all had the chance to download, upload, and try out all kinds of apps and services that I hesitated using in the past. There is tons of new fun stuff, but I wanted to talk about some of the great business apps that I have started using because they have made it easier to work from home. In the past, I have never used my phones for much more than texting, talking and the basic apps on account of nothing ever working well. All of that has changed because of the incredible performance of the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the reliable service from Verizon Wireless.

What's Bloming in the Community Garden #WhatsBlooming

A couple weeks ago I stopped by the community garden just to see how it was doing. With the drought, an empty rain barrel and a lack of garden hoses near our own veggie gardens, there was little that survived. I was able to keep up with everything that was growing in containers and the patio garden beds, but there was only one of me. It did give me the chance to see how all the drought resistant and natural gardening I have done around the house actually held up. I am proud to say while the plants went into survival mode, the actual flowers died or wilted, the plants themselves all made it through and are flourishing again all on their own.

We Decide: The Latino Role in the 2012 Election #WeDecide

The 2012 election is more important to more Latinos that I know than the 2008 was, even with the super heated immigration debate that went on back then. True, immigration is still a hot button topic this time around, but healthcare, education and unemployment have brought the Latino community together more than ever before.
