How an External Hardrive Saves my Day

I  acquired an external hard drive after  my computer started to shut down.  With only a hair strand hope left and thought all my files  were deleted,  to discover  that all my files were all saved,   was such a big relief.  All my  important data stored in my old computer were saved.   Only a technology  expert can help you do it but  it will cost you a big amount, unless of course you  have  a friend  who’s  willing to help you for free.  I learned my lesson and thought about  having a back-up copy every time.   I made sure I always  have copies of files, photos and data  in my external drive.   External drive will give you  a worry free day  should your computer stop working unexpectedly.

Today,  technology is not  only faster but is cheaper and  yet improving a lot.  Different companies rely their technology needs to a site that will  provide them  wider options for their storage  like    The advantage of having external storage is that, it is easier and you can use it anytime even if your computer is not available.  If your files on  your  computer  fails  you,  your  back up copy will save your day.

Benefits of Brown Rice

I  serve brown  rice in our table for a couple of  weeks now.   I don’t really like the brown rice  at first because of its not really good  taste or maybe we’re used to white  rice with soft  though kind of  bland taste.  When I first cooked brown rice, I mixed  it  with  white since the first class brown rice was not  available at the time of my purchase.  Plain brown rice tastes like corn.  Brown rice is considered a whole grain and has more fiber than white.

If  you zoom in the label and nutrition facts,  you’ll read the many benefits of brown rice as follows:

  • good source of fiber
  • lower your cholesterol
  • prevent colon cancer
  • give younger looking skin
  • lower your blood pressure
  • relieve arthritis pain
  • prevent heart disease
  • control diabetes
  • prevent gallstones
  • improve your memory
  • prevent obesity

Vita Rice is a certified diet rice.  I am not after for its losing weight benefits but more on the  cholesterol and and  fiber content  for every  grain of  brown rice.
