The Amazing Goodness of Blueberries

Yesterday, we have come to realize on how essential blueberries to our health and how yummy they are as a blueberry cheesecake. Anyway, to add more in my previous topic blueberries are pack of nutritional benefits such as vitamins, minerals and some antioxidants. Yeah! I already mention this before but to be more specific blueberries also contain small amounts of B vitamins such as folates, niacin, panthothenic acid and pyridoxine which help our body metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. B vitamins are truly essential to good health and also having this nutrients can help lower the risk of heart disease and certain cancer. Moreover, blueberries are also great source of copper, iron, manganese, potassium and zinc which benefits the body in many different ways. Copper is necessary in the production of erythrocytes also known as red blood cells while iron is needed for red blood cell formation. Manganese is very important in the manufacture of the superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD is an antioxidant enzyme which repair cells and lessen the damage done to them by superoxide, the most common free radical in the body. Potassium helps controlling the blood pressure and heart rate. Zinc is also an essential mineral not only available in dietary supplement but it is naturally present in blueberries. Zinc plays a role in immune function and wound healing.

Knowing all the good things and amazing facts on blueberries I think I don't need to elaborate more about it since even I myself was convinced that this wild berry is truly amazing and essential.

This lovely car also referred to as VW Bug, it is one of the most well known classic car in the history. The word “volkswagen” literally means “people's car” and this idea came from Adolf Hitler in 1924 while he was in prison.

Trumpet is Amazing, isn't it?

One of the niches in the field of music that really caught my attention is trumpet. This one truly makes me wonder and really keeps me to know more behind this beautiful instrument. The trumpet is a brass musical instrument with the highest register among the brass family. It is among the oldest musical instruments way back to at least 1500 BCE. Most people they use to play trumpet in brass bands, big bands, orchestras and military bands. Basically, trumpet is in cylindrical shape made from brass with a cup shape mouthpiece. Trumpet is played by blowing air into mouthpiece by closed lips making the lips vibrate, then producing a “buzzing” sound through this action sets the column of air inside the tube making the instrument vibrate. By keeping your lips closely tight when blowing will help build up your lip muscles in order for you to play for long periods. Low sounds can be produced if your lips is slack making all the air in the tube vibrate. Well, all of the said information on trumpet really makes me still say and woot, Amazing!

Amazing Pug, How can it be?

Have you experienced being with a pug? Well, I have encountered it before and it really wonders me to its stubborn yet outgoing personality. This time I'm not gonna tell you about how pugs look like or their physical traits rather I'm gonna share simple things about them that make them such an amazing pet. Basically, pugs are outgoing and friendly that is why they can get along with other dog breeds and even with other animals. However, they get jealous easily so we must be extra careful in giving attention to other pets and discern the things that make them feel jealous. Jealousy is always an issue for them. Pugs are great choice for a family pets same with beagle as I mentioned before to my previous post. Anyway, beagles are good hunting dogs since they always love to chase rabbits while pugs are good watchdogs since they bark quickly at anything that gets closer to the house.

Pugs are not only good as family pets but also for those who are bachelors or living alone in apartments or condos. They do not require a lot of space for your small home because of their small size and they are good companions since pugs are playful and affectionate by nature.

Fall in Love with Beagle

Yesterday I've been talking about a story of a young man who risks everything to save his best friend, a stray beagle named Shiloh. Now, let us go deeper to know more the details and characteristics of this adorable and charming pet, beagle. We have seen some of the good traits of beagles from Shiloh like gentle, soft, loving and among many others. Moreover, mostly we have witnessed in movie that beagle show up as the ideal family pet. Yes! Beagles are indeed do make great family pet. Beagles are basically a friendly dog breed. They do very well with kids and love to be around with people. One of the things that amazes me about beagles are for their being so curious. Usually I see them sniffing their nose on the ground, trying to track something that is why they are consider as good hunting dogs since they track things so easily.

However, beagles get lonely easily. In their loneliness times they become destructive such as digging up gardens, chewing and destroying belongings. One of the manifestations of their loneliness is through howling and barking many times as they usually do. To keep them alive and kicking they need a lot of exercise and recreational activities. Beagles are truly one of a kind, they are the most loving and amusing dogs I have ever known. Through their adorable personality and constant curiosity make them easy to fall in love with.
