Interpret Dreams with Silva Method

Some believe it and some not but dreams do shape our lives. Just think if we can interpret the dream and analyze its hidden meaning, we will understand it is reflecting our facets of our life which we have deeply kept it hidden from the outer world. By interpreting our dreams, we can face all our problems without too much burden or worry.

This is what Silva believes in? She helps people to enhance the power of dreams, which can solve all the worries and problems of your life, and that too with Silva’s dream control technique. It states your brain is always working while you are sleeping-you are in fact thinking about your past, future, and every day problems. In fact your whole day activities and thoughts are deeply ingrained into both the hemispheres of your brain, and what we get are the haphazard answers. If we are able to interpret these answers, we will be able to lease the thoughts of our imagination to resolve all our problems. This is the way scientists and artists’ brains works? Instead of following the logic, they move beyond the unseen while awake or asleep. In logic thinking, you move from A to B but through imagination you can get anywhere.

Silva’s method can entail you to have actual interpretation of your dreams most accurately and helps you to solve all your problems. As and as you learn to analyze your dream, you will notice symbolism which in some form or the other is associated with your daily life. This will help you to have understanding of anything happening in your life and in fact you can control your dreams too. So why not use Silva method, understand what our dreams are saying to us and have a deep meaning to our lives.

Apple iPad iPhone Filling out PDF forms iOS

Are you searching the internet for solutions to view and edit Adobe Acrobat PDF forms on your iOS device, like the iPhone and iPad?

Well there are a few solutions worth noting.

1. Lifeforms –  does exactly what you want. You can fill out a form, print, email it or save it. Sign the form, add notes, draw or handwrite notes. It also saves every word you enter in a word list to use on the next form. It is a great app.

Cost: $9.99

2.  Note Taker HD app does the trick. Great app to fill-out pdf’s, get signatures on forms, etc. I am a Financial Planner and have my clients sign docs via Note Taker HD on my iPad.

3.  PDF Reader Pro Edition – If you need an app that can handle PDF forms you can check PDF Reader Pro Edition for iPad, the latest update that was released today works with PDF forms. This is the direct link:

4.  PDF Epxert for iPad
PDF Forms (even caclucations)
-two-way dropbox sync
-amazing UI
-annotation tools
-management tools

cost: $9.99


5. FORM TOOLS PDF – Will let you add text boxes, check boxes, images, and draw free hand on a PDF.
However, it’s greatest feature is the ability to create a form that can be filled out over and over again. Look for it in the app store. a must have if you want to work with PDF’s on the iPad.

cost: $4.99

6. Goodreader to do this all the time. Works great. I think Goodreader is the best app in the App store. Goodreader, allows you to annotate your PDFs. The other is Forms Tools. This allows you to create a template over an existing PDF and create field. If it had pull down box or radio button optins, it would be better, but so far seems to be the best.

cost: $4.99

7.  DocAS Lite (free version) –  allows you to annotate, type within the PDF form to fill it out, record a speaker note and play it back, slide pannel to rest your palm; add notes like post or sticky note to the document. I find it basic but cool and most of all free! I don’t need to print a form just filled in the required info, signed and send it back to the requestor. Save trees!

cost: $0 – Free

8. Type on PDF free

cost: $0 – free


Summary:  Of all the apps that are available, which one will work for you depends on your needs.

Occupy Los Angeles Protestors Being Vacated Today Hours Away @occupyla

Occupy Los Angeles Protestors Being Vacated Today Hours Away

The OccupyLA movement is about to take a turn, we don’t know the outcome of the vacating orders, and wether protestors will go without incident. With 55 days of the occupation of the lawn at Los Angeles City Hall, city officials want to re-claim the park space back and restore it back to what it was before the occupy movement took it over and the city did nothing to interfere. Now the city is about to interfere.
The Occupy movement will move but there is no confirmation on where it will be moving.

Electric Vehicle EV Charging in Pasadena, CA, Leaf, Volt

Electric Vehicle EV Charging in Pasadena, CA, Leaf, Volt

Are you searching for charging stations in Pasadena, CA?
If you have a LEAF or Volt there are several locations.

You will be pleased to learn that there are at least four locations where you can charge. I have listed them in order of use and cost, first one is CalStart where you can charge for FREE. The only one in Pasadena that currently does not charge. Thank you CalStart.

1. CalStart
48 S. Chester Avenue
Pasadena, CA 91106

View Larger Map

At the CalSTART on Chester, you have to drive behind the building and will find two Blinks and two Clipper Creek chargers. As well as a paddle charger and 120v outlets.

It appears that they are get used, but that the Blink and Clipper Creeks at least on a Saturday night nobody was using them.

To use the Clipper Creek, just open your port and plug in, and it starts to work, no charge, at least for now.

To use the  Blink, apparently you need a card.  But it appears to work.

Located between Colorado Blvd & Green St., 2 blocks west of Hill.
Note: Not sure what restrictions there are for parking here during business hours or off hours, but there are plenty of signs about towing.


2. PCC
1570 East Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, California, 91106

View Larger Map
Lot 1 – East Side of lot, drive into the lot off Hill and enter the lot and look to the right along the campus side.
You will see 2 Chargepointe chargers Level 2.

Note: Not sure if you can park here without paying for parking or if parking is included.

3. Caltech
Parking Lot
Holliston Lot
Chargepoint – not sure if it is operational
Note: will drive by this charger again and see if it is now working.

4. Old Town Pasadena
Parking Structure at
The School House parking lot has 3 legacy charging units but also has two double NEMA 5-20, 120v outlets (one pair on a timer). There are two EV parking spots there. You need to go two levels down then back up to the first level to get to them (Northwest corner). First 90 minutes parking is free, after that $2 per hour with a $6 maximum. Late night entry is a flat fee.


EVSE in the One Colorado parking structure on floor B2, east end (AVCON).

213 S De Lacey Ave Pasadena, California, 91105
(3 blocks south of Colorado Boulevard)

There is one ChargePoint J1772 EVSE in each of the 2 underground garages located at an apartment (condo) complex. Does not seem to be a fee to park. Posted fee for using the EVSEs is $3/hour. They are operated by Carcharging Inc.

1) Enter on West side of De Lacey Street just North of Del Mar. Turn right at bottom of the ramp. Continue to the right.
2) Enter on South side of Valley Street mid block (between De Lacey & South Pasadena Ave). Turn left at the bottom of the ramp then right to the far corner.

We are sure there will be more coming in the months ahead.

Pasadena Awakened by Cars Burning Out at 3am

Last night around 3am I could hear the screeching tires of what sounded like a truck or car, but this went on for at least 10-15 minutes.  It sounded like it was less than a mile away. But this hasn’t been the first time I’ve heard this.

Drivers in Pasadena need to slow down and the police need to be more vigilant about stopping this sort of nonsense behavior from drivers.

It was most likely someone who had too much to drink and thought they would show off their “skills”.
