Mother Nature’s Ideal Rug – The Cowhide

There are many beautiful ways to cover a floor, from woven rugs to sheepskin to patterned throw rugs. There’s no question, however, about the truly gorgeous impact of cowhide rugs in a room. The gentle, natural beauty of a cow’s hide gives a room an incredible texture and visual appeal that goes far beyond the utilization of an area rug. A cowhide rug comes from nature, and that’s what makes it such a beautiful way to round out a room’s look and add rustic appeal.


Mother Nature certainly doesn’t fool around when it comes to making things. The fact is, a well-made, manufactured woven rug may last a long time and hold up well with wear, but it will never compare to the way a rug made from natural cowhide does.

Cowhide comes from nature, and these hides are made to last. The other wonderful feature of a natural cowhide is the way it wears over time. An old hide will become more textured and interesting as time goes on. No matter how many feet may pass over a cowhide, it will retain its looks and truly natural beauty. It will also become softer to the touch.


When most people think of cowhide, they think of the classic black and white cow design. While this look is indeed beautiful, the fact is that natural hide comes in many different patterns, all of which are gorgeous. Let’s take a look at the many colors and patterns of cowhide, and how they can add natural beauty to a room’s decor.


Cowhide pieces are available in all white, which is a timeless look in a room that accents any style of decor. The white hide is a look that can blend well with rustic furniture or antiques, yet it also goes beautifully with sleek modern decor. Now that is versatility.

Cowhides can be dyed and decorated to add a stunning touch to a room. A zebra-dyed cowhide is a fabulous look in a room that adds a very exotic feel. Some decorators even like to take the look up a further notch, and add metallic touches to cowhide, for a fabulous 1960s feel.


The natural patterns from cowhide also have incredible beauty and versatility. Natural hides can be found in patterns of brown caramel or brown and white, or in speckled combinations of white, black and brown. Lighter toned natural hides add a touch of subtle glamour to a room. These hides are beautiful in room with light toned furnishings or antique pieces.


There’s no question that a cowhide piece will hold up for years of wear. Simply shaking out a hide outside is good maintenance, and hides can be vacuumed as long as they are treated gently, with a low powered vacuum. A little steam cleaning is also okay, but again, the process must be gentle. Hides should never be washed in a washing machine.

There’s no question that cowhide is a great choice for an area rug. These rugs offer incredible versatility, durability and a natural beauty that can’t be equalled by manmade rugs.

Gutter Matter

I’m planning to have our very old roof sidings and damaged gutters be repaired and replaced before the year 2015 ends.

While browsing the net for some tips and references on home improvement, glad that I encountered Columbus roofing companies. I know that it’s never easy to decide when to undertake a home improvement project, but again I am glad that by just reading about the said company (Columbus roofing), I came to learn some helpful stuff to think about in replacing our home’s gutter system.

Over time, due to wear and tear and lacks routine maintenance, our home gutter system has started to fail. Our original gutters are no longer straight. They are rusty therefore leaks during rainy season can already be found. In short, our gutter have deteriorated beyond repair and needs an immediate attention.

Of course, I am aware that gutters are extremely important for our home’s overall condition. I know that the installation is not as simple as nailing the new gutter to the fascia board and that’s it. The installation needs a lot of knowledge and experience that is why consulting and hiring professionals for assistance  for companies like Columbus roofing – must be considered.

I hate hiring workers who take shortcuts and very impolite. I can tell that by just reading the positive testimonials from the satisfied clients of the above-mentioned company, they can guarantee a worry-free experience, quality workmanship on installing gutters and other roofing matters with its trained professional workers.

If only a few sections of our gutters needs replacement, how I wish I could just ask my grown up nephew to take care of it with his own might. However, since our guttering system badly needs an overhaul, it is definitely wise to just hire professionals from a company that warranties its work.

Tips on Welcoming a New Dog Into the Family

dogThey’re sweet, loving, and absolutely irresistible. Whether you’re meeting dogs at your local animal shelter or through a reputable breeder, it’s hard not to fall in love with more than one puppy or dog. Sometimes a dog may even find you: Animal lover Michael J. Knapp, for example, says a stray dog worked her way into his family home and heart.

Bringing home a new furry family member is a sweet and joyful experience. However, that experience can quickly turn a little sour if the dog chews up your things, messes up your carpet, keeps you up all night or just flat-out refuses to obey you. Even the most kind-hearted and loving of pet owners may wonder if they’ve made a serious mistake.

If welcoming a new dog into your family isn’t going the way you expected, don’t despair. In most cases, these problems can be solved. Here are some dog facts in mind:

Dogs often seem to pull bait-and-switches: She was so shy in the crate, and so sweet on the first day. Then on the second day, she starts getting into everything and tearing up the house. What happened? It’s pretty simple, really: Your dog’s sudden “personality change” means she’s become comfortable with you, and sees your home as a safe and welcoming place where she’s free to be herself. Just like people, dogs have complex personalities and their fair share of quirks. She’s still a sweet puppy; she’s just showing you more of her spunky side.

Puppies are very much like toddlers: If you’ve adopted a, you’ve likely discovered that they are curious, sassy, mischievous and determined to have things their way. They teethe, test their limits and have trouble with toilet training. Dealing with a puppy is very much like dealing with a very young human. Dogs, too, will grow out of this stage so long as you provide proper puppy training.

Dogs need care and companionship:

Dogs require a lot of care, attention and guidance. You need to spend a lot of time teaching your pooch where to potty, what to chew on, how to play nice and how to have good puppy manners. Even the sweetest, most naturally well behaved of dogs will need some guidance.

The better trained your dog, the less frustration he will give you, the more well liked he will be and the more you will enjoy his company. But even the most well-trained dogs still have some personality. There are no promises that you won’t catch them napping luxuriously in your off-limits bed when you come home early. But that’s part of their charm.

Dogs are loyal: You would be hard pressed to find a more loyal, grateful or loving pet than a dog. Give them the training and help they need when they’re young, and you’ll earn yourself a wonderful companion. Michael J. Knapp knows this well: The stray dog who wandered into the family yard one day is now a cherished family member and a wonderful pet.

Home Alone

Bago ang lahat (ako lang ang luma), lemme greet each one of you – Pi Nyo Yer! 

Home alone ang peg ni Mamaru since Christmas Day kasi ang unico hijo at unica hija ko ay sa Maynila nagpasko at nag bagong taon kasama ang ibang miyembro ng angkan ko.


Eh oks lang naman sa akin na naiwan akels sa mansyones ko. Hindi talaga ako pwedeng umalis. Walang magbabantay sa mga gold bars ko dito sa bahay. Charot.

Sa totoo lang, hindi naman ako nalungkot na naiwan mag-isa. Siguro dahil sa may katotohanan talaga ang kasabihan na ang taong marunong o natutong na mag-isa sa buhay ay bomalabs ng maging vulnerable sa kalungkutan ng basta basta. Kumbaga, I maybe alone but I’m not lonely (wow, englishment!). Sanay ng mag isa ang Mamaru! Hihi.

Heniwey, nagpa-deliver na lang ako ng pork lauriat ng Chowking kagabi para sa media noche ko.

At mag-isang tomoma-toma ng “pulang suka” hanggang naghating-gabi.


Sa totoo lang, paano naman ako malulungkot kung etong mga nilalang na’to ang mga kasama ko sa bahay ngayon.


Ang cuculit nila!

Hindi ko na nakuhang manood ng fireworks sa labas ng bahay kagabi dahil nagsiksikan na ang mga alaga ko sa akin dahil sa takot sa mga paputok. Tawang-tawa ako sa mga fez nila. 😀

Janet Napoles’s version of "MY WAY"

"And now, my end is near, & so I face the nation’s judgment.
My friends I say it clear I have my case & it’s impending.
I’ve lived the lie that’s full & gained from deals from every PDAF.
0h yes, I stole a lot & did it my way.
Secrets I had a few, 10 senators, 50 congressmen. I did what I had to do, PNOY saw it thru w/out exemption.
To think I did all that & may I say not in a shy way.
Oh yes,
I screwed you all & did it my way!"

It has been reported that each councilor in Quezon City receives forty million pesos in pork barrel funds each year.
