A live band performed three weeks after the Typhoon Yolanda brought damage to the settlements and buildings in my province including the town where I am assigned at present. The concert was sponsored by a charitable donor. The residents were somehow redirected from their state of distress. The live band was superb. Every member of the band are awesome especially the drummer who have floor tom legs in drum mounts. There is just a peculiarity in the way he plays the drum or is it the floor tom legs mounted in his drum? Well, for whatever it is, the town residents had a blast for one night.
What a way to enjoy an internet connection while sipping iced tea or any juice drinks in the hotel where I went this afternoon with a friend. The hotel is right within the heart of the city. I met with a friend in this hotel to talk about my insurance advisorship and I was glad with the fast wifi connection the hotel has. The hotel has very reasonable restaurant food rates. I am sure to be back there within this week. I hope to bring there a client.
Music lover? There are now new innovations on how your favorite music could be played in different gadgets. For instance, there is now the cheap novation launchpad which I do not have yet. I just keep on hearing about this from my friends. I am not a techy person when it comes to recording, sharing, importing, mixing and remixing music. However, with the novation launchpad these things may be easier for me to do than say. I should start learning how to tweak my musical gadgets, for a change.
Just as I suspected my laptop was really infected with viruses. I bought an anti virus last year and had only installed it successfully today. The activation code could not be successfully encoded without an internet connection the reason why it was only installed now. A stream of viruses were detected and cleaned when a scan was made in the whole computer system. It really pays to have an updated anti virus to a laptop otherwise the life span of the laptop will be shortened. Also, the files you have exerted efforts to store will be in the risk of being infected.

I was just mentioning about problems in my previous posts and here I am again mentioning about them. I am glad that I don't engage in drugs as my coping mechanism. For some, it is their coping mechanism. However, the bad part of it is the addiction. There are although treatment like opiate drug detox to treat the addiction for drugs but it is still best to avoid engaging in illegal drugs. It helps though that there are effective treatments for those who are addicted to drugs. These drugs can be accessed at a mouse click away. More than drugs however, it is the person who is receiving the treatment to have the willingness to be treated, otherwise all treatments will be futile.
Since the Super Typhoon Yolanda, everything has not been normal. Psychologically, it is traumatic since everywhere you see is associated with the effects of Yolanda. Minor problems encountered is aggravated because the stress is always there and it is immediately aggravated by any minor problems. When these would end is an uncertain phenomenon. I was driving this morning when I just sobbed and cry because of a problem I remember. The triggering element that made me cry was the big pile of debris and many small children were scavenging through them. How hard and difficult life is. It is full of problems and stresses. However, I came to think that I am still lucky and the people around me are still lucky because we are in good physical health. There are many whose problems are bigger than what I have. It is a reason for me to somehow feel fine and go on with my day. I might as well meet with my friends later in the afternoon and have coffee with them.

Music plays a great part in human lives. It is a great stress reliever to many. Quiet true because most pople love and enjoy listening to quality sounds. Lousy musical instruments that produce poor quality sound of music are a big no-no. It takes some good sense of hearing though for one to differentiate from a good and poor quality of music. But, there is no worry for one if he has no idea of what a good quality of music is. He simply has to buy quality musical instruments and parts from a known store of musical instruments. For lace sensors for instance, of a guitar, one can buy exceptional lace sensor at guitar center. It only takes a mouse click away to get to it. There are also a lot of choices for other musical instruments. Poor quality music is a bad mantra to the body, so why go for less?

Typhoon Yolanda is an unforgettable experience. It created a trauma in me and my kids system. Whenever it rains as it has been and heavily lately, the fear is there that there might be a storm signal, again. Debris are everywhere as clearing, construction and repair operations are being conducted. Debris could not be collected immediately along the side of the roads as there is lack of garbage equipment to collect them. My house roofing has temporary roofing installed. Leaks inside the house has been contained. Electric power connection has not been installed, yet as the electric cooperatives are still in the process of fixing the electrical wirings. Internet access is not obtainable, as well. Cable tv connection is remote to be fixed in the next couple of months. Almost three months now after the typhoon destructions occur but its effects are still felt and we still find it hard to adjust to it. Until all utilities are restored, we will continue to live our lives abnormally.
