RIP, Robin Gibb

Bee Gees member, Robin Gibb has succumbed to cancer after a long battle and coming out from coma. Robin Gibb who was a member of the group, Bee Gees, has finally joined his brothers Maurice and Andy leaving Barry the only Bee Gee.

I've been a big fan of Bee Gees and my favorite among the members is Robin. I've listened million times to Robin's live performances of the song, I Started A Joke, and I remember the first time I heard him sang it, I cried, and since then I listened to it from time to time.

Several years ago, I dreamed of attending to Robin's concert in Manila but unfortunately I wasn't able to attend due to work. I regretted that I didn't take the opportunity to see him live and now I will never have that opportunity.

To Robin, you will always be one of my favorite singers, and I will always listen to your songs. Rest in Peace.

Time Breastfeeding Cover Causes Debate


The recent cover of Time magazine is a picture of a 3-year-old boy, standing on a chair, suckling on his mother's breast, with the picture is a title, "Are You Mom Enough?"

There are many mothers who are raising their eyebrows with this Time breastfeeding cover. On the cover is Jamie Lyn Grumet and her 3-year-old son. She claimed that she was breastfed by her mom until she was 6 years old. She also said that many have approached her against breastfeeding her 3-year-old son and threaten to report her to child services.

Although I am a supporter of breastfeeding and I respect the mother's choice on when to stop breastfeeding, I do not find the cover pleasing to my eye, specially the title. The cover does not show that there was love in breastfeeding. It seems that the mother just stands there and bare her breast for her child to feed without even looking at him or an arm around him which could have signify that the act is an act of love. Breastfeeding is a connection of the mother to her child, not only feeding him. It is a bond between the mother and the child. 

I know that Time magazine put this cover to initiate reactions from the readers, regardless it's a pro or a con. I personally believe that it is a step back to breastfeeding campaign.

Rolex Watches are a Great Investment

Rolex watches are truly great investment. Unless you honestly take horrible care of them (which shouldn't be the case since you spent so much for them in the first place) you should always be able to make your money back, if not more. Continue reading for how to sell Rolex watches and a few tips to keep in mind when it comes time for you to sell Rolex watches

Trading in Rolex watches has never been easier! If you want to sell a watch or two, no worries, there is help all around! Although it isn't quite rocket science, when it comes the time to selling high end watches, it can be quite difficult getting the whole process in order. There is a lot of thought that needs to go into preparing both yourself and your customers for the whole ordeal. It wouldn't be so difficult if there weren't any scammers out there attempting and successfully selling fake Rolex watches, but since that isn't the case it is imperative that you calm the consumers anxiety and put them at ease. 

When you need to sell rolex brand watches which are very high-end and high quality, it is important that you understand how important the whole deal is. Customers and interested consumers will be trusting you with very large amounts of money, and they want to make sure that they are getting what they paid for, which are legitimate Rolex watches. 

Don't be put off when you receive doubt about the legitimacy of your Rolex watches. This is common, and for a very good reason. People need to be concerned and watchful of where they spend their hard earned money and make sure that the sellers that they are dealing with are looking out for their best interest. Make sure that you have the correct documents in order, including the original receipt and make copies of all other paperwork including model number. If that doesn't satisfy them, than go the extra mile and get a personal signature from an official at Rolex stating that your specific watch is indeed a true Rolex. 

After doing all these things, also make sure to take great pictures as well. Good pictures can often be the deciding factor in a deal. People want to really see the product, get high definition close-ups and really fall in love with the product. Hire a professional photographer and make your Rolex watch stand out from the rest! Let your customers know that you mean business and that you really want them to enjoy and anticipate their purchase. A Rolex watch purchase can truly be the highlight of a decade.
