Batman Voice Changing Helmet

Last week, a coworker told me about a prank for another coworker and the idea came up to somewhat make it Batman themed. I found this Batman Voice Changing Helmet that might just do the trick.

DC Justice League Batman Voice Changing Tactical Helmet by Mattel

Ironically, we looked for and tried out several apps on our phones first, each of them promised that they had a Batman Voice Changing feature – BUT THEY DIDN’T!

We figured that as a last resort, we’ll just have to order the helmet. Maybe we can gift it to the coworker as a prize at the end 🙂

Need more RAM for an old MacPro?

I do. For 2009 MacPro that I got in 2009 lol!

This one was recommended to me and I’m planning to add this to my Mac sometime in the next month. I’ll probably write another update about how it worked out 🙂 For now, I can neither update to the newest versions of OSX, nor install certain Adobe products that require more RAM.

While the 2009 MacPro that I have says it can have up to 32GB of RAM (I have had 6GB for the past decade!), I’ve been told that people have already successfully used 64GB as well. That might be a little overkill for now, but it might make sense in another decade or so lol!

Kingdom Conspiracy: Returning to the Radical Mission of the Local Church by Scot McKnight

A friend from Church asked what book that I was going to read in the new year. Well, this is tricky for me because I have books that I read on my own and then there’s book I read for my classes.

One of the books I’m reading for class early on is Kingdom Conspiracy: Returning to the Radical Mission of the Local Church by Scot McKnight.

Kingdom Conspiracy

I’m not going to say much about the book yet, but I’ll probably post a book review later on this year after I’ve read it. You can read the description HERE if you like to (it makes no sense to copy and paste it into this post).

There’s also a Kindle version.

Good Deal on Protein Powder

By now, you’ve probably seen various posts on our Facebook and Instagram where we talk about the 6-week challenge at Pro-TF. One of the things that we keep getting asked about is protein powder.

TN2639989

One of the trainers at Pro-TF actually recommended this San Diego company to us and we’ve been very happy with them so far. While placing our first order, we found out that we can go pick it up in person at the warehouse within a day. The shipping is not very expensive but the day we ordered it we had also run out of protein powder so picking it up in Vista, CA the next day was perfect!

bulk-powders

We also found out that when ordering more than 7 pounds of one blend we get 5% off the total automatically. Then we also got promo code JOHN316 from a friend, which gave us an additional 5% off. Combined with free shipping, not bad for our first time ordering!

custom-blend

One of the cool features of the True Nutrition website is that you can build your own custom blends. For us, we generally use the pea protein isolate so that part is easy for us. The part that’s harder is choosing just one flavor! There are around 20 different flavors to choose from. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup is our favorite so far!

TN2651622

One piece of advice: if you add “boosts,” like we did, changing the “flavor intensity to “heavy” is well worth it because it masks the flavors that are added from the boosts. So far, we’ve only added the “Multi-Vitamin & Mineral” boost as well as the “Electrolytes” boost. This is because they have so many things in them that we like and need, especially Magnesium and Potassium. What’s really cool too about the custom blend builder is that it gives you the Nutrition Facts as you build. And then it also gets printed on the label of the container.

make-it-yours

Last but not least, you can also give your special blend a name. So the next time you order, you can just choose the blend you already know and love. On the other hand, maybe you still want to experiment before you name your perfected creation… don’t worry: your custom blend will be named “My Custom Blend #XXXXXXXX” and assigned a unique number (in place of the Xs) by default.

Glutamine and BCAAs

Trying out some new supplements for our 6-week nutrition & exercise challenge…

Our Glutamine choices seem pretty straightforward and these here don’t have any fillers or unnecessary coloring etc.

Evlution Nutrition Glutamine 5000 5 Grams of Pure Glutamine in Each Serving Unflavored Powder (60 Servings)

For the BCAAs, it’s a little trickier. The one that comes highly recommended to us is the following one. Apparently, it’s mint flavor and goes well with the chocolate flavor protein powder 🙂

I’m God’s Favorite T-Shirt

By now, many of our friends and families have seen one of us rocking our new favorite “I’m God’s Favorite.” T-Shirts and made comments and/or asked about where it came from. So, we would like to share where we got them from. It’s actually a print-on-demand Shopify store that Daniel has been working on. We have decided to open the store in progress to the public so others can buy the shirts as well. Have a large order? You’re welcome to contact us for discounted pricing.

Independence Day: This Is Your Financial Independence Day

As we’re about to celebrate the US Independence Day on July 4, I’d like to submit the idea that we can also hope for and work towards our financial independence day. Just as our founding fathers fought for our independence back in the day, so we can today also fight to become financially independent, and for some of us, mark the day on our calendar when we found ourselves there, on our very own financial independence day.

Today, I’d like to talk about a training program that I’ve been looking into over the past month called, Wealthy Affiliate. While I’ve been a web developer for over 10 years now, I’ve found the training quite useful in terms of learning how to market a website, do keyword research and generate traffic.

What does this have to do with financial independence or independence day?

The training helps ordinary people that aren’t writers or marketers find out that they can be and that they can make income on the side or even a living out of it. When you think about it, everyone is an expert on at least one subject. Wealthy Affiliate provides the training on how to put that to good use and also provides the tools to succeed.

And Wealthy Affiliate is so much more too. Wealthy Affiliate is also an online community of over 800k active members from all walks of life that help each other succeed through forums, chats, and training built from past experiences. Members share with each other what works and what does not work. Also, members help each other when they get stuck. And, members give constructive criticism and provide feedback on each others’ websites to further boost search engine rank and community engagement.

How does the Affiliate in Wealthy Affiliate become Wealthy?

Affiliate marketing. The training provided at Wealthy Affiliate is a step by step guide on how to create a new website (with WordPress) and through thorough keyword research generate organic search engine traffic. When there’s traffic on the website(s), there’s also the potential for affiliate links. Affiliate links are, essentially, links to services and products that are related to what your website is about our products and services that we recommend. Once a user clicks on such a link and buys that service or product, the website owner receives a commission. Many website owners have become quite wealthy with this strategy.

Make it your financial independence day with Wealthy Affiliate

I’d like to challenge you today to mark this day, Independence Day, as the day that you begin your journey towards financial independence by giving Wealthy Affiliate a try and give yourself a chance to benefit from the many services and features that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer.

What can I do with the Starter Membership?

Here’s a comparison chart that shows exactly what’s available with the Starter Membership vs what Premium members get. Oh, and by the way, when you’re using the free Starter Membership, you get a discount to upgrade to Premium Membership. I recommend taking full advantage of the first 7 days of membership and learn as much as you possibly can, then, if you decide that Wealthy Affiliate is for you, upgrade your membership right before the 7 days are up and take advantage of the huge discount.

In closing, I’d like to offer anyone who is interested in learning more about the program at Wealthy Affiliate, please reach out to me with any concerns or questions. I’m here to help. You can use the comments below or send a message via the contact form.

 

Green Tea Summer Morning Smoothie 

Our newest morning favorite is a green tea smoothie we like to call the green tea summer morning smoothie. It’s easy to make and only has 5 ingredients
To 24oz of unsweetened, cold almond milk, add:

Blend on high for 30 seconds. Enjoy!

Optionally, add a couple of ice cubes before or after blending. We’ve found that we like both options to make it colder or the no ice option with cold almond milk, either way it’s awesomely refreshing and boosts focus!
