Check Engine Light Is On

I went for gas Tuesday morning on my way to work then coming home i noticed that the check engine light is on. My car was still running fine so we waited for Friday and do the checkup. The results came  with code P0456 which is evap control small leak detected. Probable causes  are faulty fuel cap, purge system leak, faulty canister vent control valve and faulty purge control valve. We brought it to the mechanic and first thing he told us is to change the gas cap. If the light is still on after we changed it, bring the car back to him. Off we went to Nissan to buy a gas cap. Hubby changed it but still the light was there. We were supposed to bring it back the next day but lo and behold, the light was gone. My 03 Altima is old so I am really expecting something would come up but it still runs ok. Hope the gas cap solved the problem but i am still holding on to the results of the test just in case.

Total spent: $23.00 for the cap. To run the test was free at autozone.

When You Are Looking For An Insurance Policy

Our topic in school now is about medical insurance. At first, I thought it is just a simple topic about buying an insurance to pay for your bills when you get sick. I forgot to consider  a lot of insurance companies offering medical insurance and as an insured, which among them is the best.

No More Cash Only

Do you still see establishments, like our favorite Chinese restaurant, have signs right at the register that says “cash only”? Yes, there are still a lot of establishments that do not accept electronic payments until now. I wonder how many clients they lose everyday because they do not have cash in their wallets but they have cards instead. I am one of them a lot of times. It is just now that I always have a cash in my wallet because I have to give my daughter lunch money every day but other than that I am fine with just my cards, driver’s license and cell phone in my pocketbook.

For those who own a business and wants to start accepting electronic payments, check out Mercury Payment Systems (MPS) found on for smart payment processing systems. They offer cost efficient electronic payment from the point of sale, your cash register or terminal. Other merchant services they offer are custom or pre-designed gift cards, health benefit cards, health care management,…

iOs 5 and iCloud

iOS 5 has been here for days now but still did not get the chance to download to my phone. My friend was showing me a new version of FB after she downloaded to iOS 5 but i already have that new version through a fb update on my iPhone. Hmm, i wonder what else is new. She also said that it took around 25 minutes to upgrade to iCloud because she has many pictures on her phone.

Maybe I can do mine this weekend...or tomorrow.

Shopping For Your Man

When we were still living in the Philippines, I can hardly find big and tall clothing for my husband (he was just my boyfriend that time). Now that we live here in the U.S., it has never been a problem for me anymore looking for big and tall clothing for hubby.

Printer Ink Collector

This is what they call me at the office. At work, I think we have four laser printers and two ink jet printers. We print thousands of copies every week so imagine how many printer ink or toner cartridges we use in a month. What do we do with them? Sometimes there is a recycling guy that picks them up once in a blue moon so when I saw how they pile up at the storage, I asked my boss if I can have those empty toners and cartridges for my daughter’s school fund raising. From then on, everybody started calling me as the ink collector. I do not mind at all. By now, everybody in the office knows where to go after they replace their toners or ink cartridges.

While we talk about empty ink cartridges, this reminds me of our home computer printers. We have two, one colored printer and a black and white laser printer. Why a laser B&W one? Because my daughter prints a lot of her worksheets at home, and it is too expensive to be using the colored printer all the time. With the b&w printer …
