Well the reason why I created this site was to, well be thankful I guess.... I mean our lives are so much comfortable nows because of the convenience around us

Such as the toilet ..... where would we have to poo if it weren't for it

Toilets appeared as early as 2500 BC. The people of the Harappan civilization in Pakistan and north-western India had water-flushing toilets in each house that were linked with drains covered with burnt clay bricks. Around the 15th century BC, toilets started to appear in Minoan Crete; Egypt in the time of the Pharaohs and ancient Persia. In Roman civilization, toilets were sometimes part of public bath houses.

Roman toilets, like the ones pictured here, are commonly thought to be used in the sitting position. But sitting toilets only came into general use in the mid-19th century.A case has been made for the squatting hypothesis.

Soap, Shampoo, and deoderant.

Glad that we can smell good nowadays. Especially for me girls gotta smell nice and keep good care of their hair.

Yeah unfortunately most of us don't take the time to appreciate the little things in life.

I try to be thankful. But somehow most of the time I take things for granted. Thank goodness there is Thanksgiving Day. A day invented so that everyone has the excuse to be thankful for whatever they are thankful for. I really can't imagine like without electricity. I have got to thank the guy that invented it.

I am very thankful of the little things indeed!...

Like time... it's a good thing that we decided to keep track of it...

Like Pillows!.. My terrible back and neck pain (i know.. too early for someone in their late teens?) would be torture without them!

Like Tissue!... our moments in the bathroom without these would be horrible (not unless you wash yourself with a tabo like what we Filipinos do..>_<)

Thank Youuu!!
