The Best Way to Repair Damaged Threads

Have you ever had a bolt hole that you could no longer screw a bolt into due to missing or damaged threads, or wanted to make a bolt hole stronger in materials such as aluminum? Well, my husband has been a machinist for 15 years and knows the best fix for your problem, it is the Helicoil inserts. You can buy Helicoil in metric sizes from m2 to m39 coarse or fine and in standard sizes from #4-40 to 1 1/2" coarse and fine.
When you buy a Helicoil kit it comes with a drill bit, a special tap made just for the helicoil, a driver tool and the stainless steel Helicoil inserts. The process is easy, you just drill the damaged hole out with the supplied drill bit, then retap the hole with the special Helicoil tap, and then use the driver to screw in the Helicoil, when you are done just use a punch to break off the driver tang on the insert and you are ready to screw in your new bolt. It's as easy as that!

We were so happy and really had a great time!

It's Saturday!

My week went so fast. I was really busy. I am so glad that it's Saturday already. I've just been sitting around since I woke up, playing facebook and talking to my family overseas.
My husband and my daughter are watching " Little House on the Prairie" right now.
I don't have much to say at this time. Seems my mind is empty but I just can't help it to express how blessed I am to have this kind of life. I always thank God for all the blessings He has given me and my family.

"The Good Wife's Guide"

Yesterday, my hubby came home from work and gave me a piece of paper, and said.." Honey, read it"..he had the biggest smile I've ever seen!
Here's the excerpt of that photocopied page from " Housekeeping" Monthly, May 13,1955.
" The Good Wife's Guide"
  • Have dinner ready. Plan ahead, even night before, to have a delicious meal ready, on time for his return. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the prospect of a good meal( esp. his favorite dish) is part of the warm welcome needed.
  • Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so you'll be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just been with a lot of work-weary people.
  • Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
  • Clear away the clutter. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives.
  • Over the cooler months of the year, you should prepare and light a fire for him to unwind by. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift too. After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with immense personal satisfaction.
  • Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash the children's hands and faces( if they are small), comb their hair and, if necessary, change their clothes. Minimize all noise. At the time of his arrival, eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer or vacuum. Try to encourage the children to be quiet.
  • Be Happy to see him.
  • Greet him with a warm smile and show sincerity in your desire to please him.
  • Listen to him. You may have a dozen important things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first- remember, his topics of conversation are more important than yours.
  • Make the evening his. Never complain of he comes home late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment without you (my thought-- unless only occassionally hehehe). Instead, try to understand his world of strain and pressure and his very real need to be at home and relax.
  • Your goal: Try to make sure your home is a place of peace, order, and tranquillity.
  • Don't greet him with complaints and problems.
  • Don't complain if he's late home for dinner or even if he stays out all night- (my thought-depends if he is working late hahaha). Count this as a minor compared to what he might have gone through that day.
  • Make him comfortable. Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or have him lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool or warm drink ready for him.
  • Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soothing and pleasant voice.
  • Don't ask him questions about his actions or question his judgment or integrity. Remember, he is the master of the house and as such will always exercise his will with fairness and truthfulness. You have no right to question him.
  • A good wife always knows her place.

My reactions.....

  1. The bold and italic ones are the things I don't agree! I love my husband but I am not his slave!
  2. Am glad I was not born during that time! Hahahaha.
  3. I know I am not a perfect wife but all I can say is - I take good care of my family.
  4. I am blessed to have a wonderful and responsible husband that truly loves me and cares about our family.
  5. I just gave him my biggest smile too!:):)

Secrets Of Family Success

We hear so much about what goes wrong in families that fail. But what goes right on those that thrive? Let's consider seven secrets of success:
  1. The Right Priorities- What this means? - In successful marriages, each spouse puts the other's needs ahead of self, possessions, job, friends, and even other relatives. Husband and wife spend plenty of time with each other and with the children. Both are willing to make sacrifices for the interests of the family.
  2. Commitment- Successful couples view their marriage as a permanent union. When a problem arises, they strive to solve it rather than use it as an excuse to abandon the marriage. When spouses have a sense of commitment, they feel secure. Each trusts that the other will continue to honor the union. Commitment is like a guardrail that prevents your marriage from going off course.
  3. Teamwork - They respect the headship arrangement, which means, the husband is the head of the family. Nevertheless, both husband and wife view their marriage in terms of "ours" and "we" rather than "mine" and "me". When there is teamwork, husband and wife are no longer single at heart. They are " one flesh". Teamwork means that you are the pilot and copilot with the same flight plan.
  4. Respect - Both troubled and successful families have disagreements. But successful families discuss matters without resorting to sarcasm, insults, and other forms of abusive speech. Family members treat one another as they themselves would like to be treated.
  5. Reasonableness - What this means? In successful families, husbands and wives make allowances for each other's mistakes. They are also neither unduly rigid nor overly permissive with their children. They set a modest number of household rules. When correction is needed, they give it to the proper degree. Like a careful driver, a reasonable family member is prepared to yield.
  6. Forgiveness - Successful couples learn from the past; but they do not keep track of old grievances and then use these to make sweeping assertions, such as " You are always late" or "You never listen". Both husband and wife believe that it is beauty on their part to pass over transgression.
  7. A Firm Foundation - Strong families do not endure automatically, any more than a house just keeps standing for many decades. A solid structure needs a firm foundation, and the same is true of a strong family. Successful families are built on a source of guidance that works. If you include God in your family, no doubt- your family can withstand the storms that threaten it.

Wedding Anniversary...

January 28th, 2006....when we tied the knot..."wedding bells"!!! 14 days to will be our 4th year Wedding Anniversary. It is our tradition to exchange gifts- my hubby, my daughter and Me...the three of us, it's very exciting! Most of the time we have to open our presents early because we can't wait! Ha ha ha.
My husband is been asking what do I want. Hmmm, what do I want? I want a lot of things! Hahaha. But last night, I had to make the decision, so I told him what I want. Am really really excited now, eventhough, I knew what am getting..still, it excites me!
I bought R/C ( Radio Control) stuff for him- Transmittor and the bag. This is not a surprise for him because I had to ask him about it because I know nothing about R/C. But I have a surprise for him, am not going to write it because he might find it out! lol.
Now, for our daughter, we decided to buy her a Netbook, we think it is very useful for her since she is getting bigger and she is doing research for school assignments. I bet, she will be very happy with her gift!
My daughter has to buy gift for my hubby and of course, I have to pay for it Hahaha. But likewise, my hubby has to pay the gift she is getting for me! Aren't we cute and funny??? Hahaha. I am just loving it.

Sign of Last Days...

What a terrible incident! Thousands of people lost their lives from young ones to old ones. They are still searching people that were buried under those buildings that collapses. I can imagine the distress and frustration they are experiencing right now.
Why are these things happening? We've heard alot of catastrophic incident around the world. And some of us wondered "why?". The Bible foretold about the signs of the last days. The Bible uses " last days" to refer to the concluding time period to a divinely appointed execution that marks the end of a system of things. But what indicates that we are today are living in a" the last days"? The bible describes events and conditions that mark this significant time period.
  • Luke 21:11 " There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another pestilences and food shortages".
  • Matthew 24:7 " For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another".

No doubt that we are living in the last days. But we all do try to plan our lives in such a way as to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Realistic planning is practical. The Bible shows that there are wonderful things ahead, and we are wise if we plan so as to benefit from them. God promise everlasting life to those individual who are obedient and loyal to Him. John 17:3 "This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God ( Jehovah), and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ". This is the time to dig in, to meditate, to study and to know more about Him because No one can protect us from any harm except the only true God, Jehovah.

To all the people in Haiti, to my brothers and sisters, my heart is with you. You will be in my prayers.
