Chocolates is very popular and a favorite present especially for lovers and soon to be sweethearts. When we mentioned chocolate first thing that comes in mind is it is “sweet” and should be eaten moderately because it contains high calorie and a high fat food.  Although some fat in dark chocolate don’t have bearing in your cholesterol.  I love chocolates in fact I have my own favorites, but I go for Dark chocolates. Dark chocolate is a chocolate without milk solids and this kind of chocolate is susceptible to dry, it has chalky texture and has both sweet and bitter taste.  The key ingredients in dark chocolate are cacao beans, sugar and lecithin, this components help to retain its quality.  Dark chocolates can be classified according to their cocoa solid content in a bar.  Usually commercial dark chocolate bars contains 30%, 70% and 75%% respectively or 80% above for extremely dark chocolates.  It is also known as bittersweet chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and sweet dark chocolate.

Eating a small bar of dark chocolate everyday can help keep your heart running well.  It can reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol as well.   If you eat half bar of dark chocolate in a day you must refrain from eating other sweets, instead, eat less of something else to maintain your calorie.  You should know that chocolates have 300 compounds and chemicals in every bite so, better take time and enjoy the taste.  It has higher antioxidants compared to milk chocolates. When buying dark chocolate choose pure dark chocolates or with nuts, orange peel and other flavorings except with caramel, nougat etc. they just added sugar and fat in it.  Avoid milk after eating dark chocolate for it will prevent the proper absorption of antioxidants in your body.

What You Need To Know About Facebook

People now have greater access to the internet.  Besides, Social networking is growing and gaining more popularity among users.  Instead of sending text messages they turn to this channel to send greetings to their loved ones, friends, and families here and abroad.  Why people are using Facebook?  I guess people might just want to have their own place to upload photos so that they can share it with their friends.   Might want to open a business and use it as their online store. For politically motivated person they use Facebook to spark interest in their bids for election.  Some would like to speak with others who share their interest. No matter what the reasons maybe with its growing popularity and usage no wonder Facebook has become one of the top among Social Networking sites today.  Users take advantage of the phenomenal growth of this technology and you seem to be out of this world if you don’t have an FB account.

FB was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg together with his fellow computer science students and college roommates.  It is a Social network service to help people grasp what’s going on in their world.  Likewise, the author also wanted to create an environment where people could share information but, also have control over such information they shared.  I am pretty sure all of us have notice the Privacy settings as one of the features in Facebook.  In this feature, you have the option of whom to share your information with. It’s very clear, right? But some users missed this point. Undeniably, there are crimes and tragedy linking to Facebook. Some were even attacked by harsh and degrading statements. We should be careful in what information we share and invite as friends in order to avoid circumstances that would harm us.

There’s nothing wrong with Facebook in fact I find it useful… let’s just be careful. For people who are planning to have FB account, setting a Facebook is easy.   You just need to have an email address and of course a password.   Always remember never ever share your password to anyone. Welcome to Facebook!

What Everybody Should Know About Thyroid Disease and Goiter


Thyroid disease is one of the most common diseases that usually occurs in women.  It happens when the thyroid gland could not supply the appropriate amount of hormones required in the body. There are two diverse condition if you have this disease and they are called hypothyroidism means the thyroid is releasing inadequate amount of hormone to the bloodstream. The other condition is hyperthyroidism your thyroid releases too much hormones in the bloodstream.  One indication of a person who has hyperthyroidism is when the eyes appear to bulge out, look like they’re staring or always feel irritated.  But, no matter what the condition is whether a person is hypo or hyper the thyroid can become larger than normal. When the lump under your skin in the thyroid can easily be seen or felt it is called goiter.

If you suspect that you have a goiter you can do a thyroid self-exam at home.  Get a glass of water and stand in front of the mirror, drink some water while you swallow, watch your neck between your Adams apple and collarbone.  If you notice something unusual like a bulge or a lump around your thyroid gland then it is best to see your doctor.  It may not be alarming but it could also lead to thyroid cancer. Your doctor will guide you and start any treatment necessary for your condition. If everything feels normal then nothing to worry.

An auto-immune disease called Graves Disease usually is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. This condition produces abnormal types of antibodies which make the thyroid gland produces more  thyroid hormone and eventually thyroid gland will enlarge. The enlargement of the thyroid is called goiter.  I suffered from goiter for how many years and I had my thyroidectomy last November, 2010.  But, I am still obliged to see my doctor every after three months.

I realized women as they age became conscious and tend to look for alternative to delay aging.  Certainly it is inevitable but there are many ways or alternative to delay the process of aging. New technologies and beauty products were introduced in the market today and people have a lot of options  depending on their choices.  They can go for alternative or the other way around which is the cosmetic surgery.  Cosmetic surgery is gaining more popularity nowadays but there are still individuals who believed and choose the natural way of combating the appearance of wrinkles and maintaining their beauty.

We all know that wrinkles can’t be avoided but, I also believed that it can be delayed.  That’s why we should take good care of our body especially our skin by avoiding direct  and too much exposure to sunlight.  If this could not be avoided then better use sunblock. According to some experts it is still best to go herbal.  You can use Milk cream and do not let sweat stay longer on your face, and above all wash your face regularly. Our economy nowadays is not that stable and financial crisis is being felt by the majority.  Despite this happening now I think we can still pamper ourselves by not spending too much in maintaining our beauty.  Try the home remedy for wrinkles. Buy 3 to 4 capsules of vitamin A, pour the content in a bowl.  Add half teaspoon of honey which you can buy in any supermarkets in your area. 2 teaspoon yoghurt and half teaspoon lemon juice. Mix them together and apply the mixture on your face using a clean cotton or your clean fingers. Let it stay for 15 minutes and then wash it off. That’s it. It’s very simple, economical and you can do it yourself while in the comforts of your home.

I never knew about blogging although I heard people mentioning it but I was never interested at it first. Until one day when I was certain to resigned from my job. Blogging was formally introduced to me by a friend and then later I found myself soliciting ideas and advises on how to blog from new acquaintances whom I know is into blogging. My first ever blog entitled “Every Thought Counts” was born two years ago and continue to exist up to this time.

Blogging suppresses my lull time. When I’m feeling tired or something and alone I resort to blogging to keep me more alive and alert, it keeps me going. My other blog on the other hand, is more focus on my personal activities, its like a journal, wherein I jot down some important and selected happenings and events I am into.
