Mother's Day

I'd just like to wish all moms a happy Mother's Day. This is a special day. Mothers are the ones who raise the kids who become the leaders of the world. We should never diminish the position of a mother, because it is by far the most important role in the world.

Healthy Living

Good nutrition, physical activity, and a healthy body weight are essential parts of a person’s overall health and well-being. Together, these can help decrease a person’s risk of developing serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer. A healthful diet, regular physical activity, and achieving and maintaining a healthy weight also are paramount to managing health conditions so they do not worsen over time.

Most Americans, however, do not eat a healthful diet and are not physically active at levels needed to maintain proper health. Fewer than 1 in 3 adults and an even lower proportion of adolescents eat the recommended amount of vegetables each day. Compounding this is the fact that a majority of adults and adolescents do not get the recommended amount of physical activity.

As a result of these behaviors, the Nation has experienced a dramatic increase in obesity. Today, approximately 1 in 3 adults and 1 in 6 children and adolescents are obese. Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, which are among the leading causes of death. In addition to grave health consequences, overweight and obesity significantly increase medical costs and pose a staggering burden on the U.S. medical care delivery system.

Ensuring that all Americans eat a healthful diet, participate in regular physical activity, achieve and maintain a healthy body weight, and discontinue harmful habits (i.e. stop smoking) is critical to improving the health of Americans at every age.

Sun Spots

As we age, one of the things most adults experience is sun spots. Sun spots are those dark spots on your skin that can look like small circles or even larger blotches. Some people call these age spots or liver spots, but they are actually caused by overexposure to the sun. As we age, our skin is subjected to more and more sun damage. Our skin has what is called melanin pigment which absorbs sunlight and helps naturally protect our skin from UV rays. Melanin is what causes our skin to darken or tan when exposed to the sun. However as we age, our skin's natural ability to fend off UV rays from the sun begins to deteriorate, and sun-damaged skin produces abnormal amounts of melanin resulting in the development of age spots.

Luminaze is a sun spot remover that is clinically proven to work better and faster than the leading prescription ingredient. Luminaze works by using an enzyme that targets melanin, the cause of sun spots, and breaks it down. Because the enzyme targets only melanin, it is safe, does not harm any other part of your skin, and promotes an overall even skin tone by only targeting the excess pigmentation.

I started using Luminaze about a month ago. I have several dark spots on my hands and one on my cheek. I use the two step lotion twice a day after washing. It is very gentle, does not dry out my skin, and feels rather clean when applying to my skin. After about seven days it seemed that I could tell the dark spots on my hands were becoming slightly lighter. Now after thirty days, the dark spots are noticeably lighter. The spots are not completely gone away. However, the one on my cheek does not stand out near as much as it did, and my face has a much more even skin tone. The sun spots that I have are much lighter than they used to be, and I am very pleased with the results I have experienced with the use of Luminaze. I suggest you give it a try if you are experiencing problems with sun spots.

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to me! Tomorrow is my birthday.

My buddy and his wife recently went on a cruise to the Caribbean. They had a wonderful time and took lots of beautiful pictures. One of the things they did was go snorkeling. It looked like a lot of fun. They actually wore wetsuits and had an underwater camera they used to take lots of pictures of small fish around a coral reef. They said it was a little cool and that was one reason they decided to wear the wetsuit. The water was so clear anyway but being able to snorkel and have your head underwater they were truly able to experience the beauty of that coral reef ecosystem. They took pictures of fish, octopuses, and what looked like the remains of some small sunken ship. If I ever go on a cruise to that area of the world, I definitely think that snorkeling is one activity I want to try.

National Championship

The BCS National Championship is starting. I'm hoping to see a good game. I don't really care who wins just want to see a little more exciting game than the first matchup earlier in the season. Congratulations to both teams who are both very deserving of a national title.

Rental Properties

Content by Donny Vinson

My husband and I own several rental properties near the beach. We try to keep the properties updated so that we continue to have a lot of renters. We get asked a lot of questions about the amenities that our properties offer. One of the most requested amenities is cable tv. People who rent always want to make sure that they will have access to cable tv. I guess part of their vacations include being able to relax and watch any shows they want to. When my husband was setting up the utilities in our properties, he found a few different cable tv packages. We needed cable for several properties, so we wanted to find a good deal. We used a package that was the most reasonable for his money and would give renters a wide range of tv channels to watch. I am glad that we decided to use this package. All of our properties are always booked and they probably would not be if we did not have cable. Although, I’m sure that the beach view helps keep them booked too.

I know most people have been through a dieting kick in their lives. I know I've been through it. When I did, I tried the Herbalife shakes. These are basically meal replacement shakes. They replace two meals of the day, and this program actually works great. Not only can you lose weight and stay healthy, but you can make a little extra money with it.

When using the product, I joined the Herbalife Distributor Program. By signing people up, you can actually earn a significant income. Of course, just as dieting, this is not a quick and easy way to earn money. You actually have to work at it and practice discipline; however if you actually work at it you can be successful. I made an extra income while also earning extra money. You can actually lose weight and make money. Below is a quick video you can watch about the product and the program.


The importance of stretching is often overlooked. I know that since I've been doing the pushup/pullup routine, I've seen a difference. Warming up and stretching not only helps limit pulled muscles or injuries, but it help with flexibility. It also helps your muscles to adapt and form to the change they are going through. The important thing is to not overlook the value of stretching.

Varicose Veins

Many women young and old suffer from varicose veins. Understanding the causes and treatments can help people who suffer with varicose veins. Many women experience pains in their legs, but they do not know why. Some women may think that they are too young to have varicose veins. There are several different reasons that this occurs. Prolonged standing is a leading cause of varicose veins; that is why many nurses suffer from this condition.

After women discover that they have varicose veins, then they have questions about how to treat them. Sometimes minor surgery will help, and sometimes a more simple treatment is needed; however, in most cases, insurance will cover the treatment. Usually no time off of work is needed and exercise is encouraged. A great website that answers most questions about varicose veins is This site has a frequently ask questions section that has many helpful answers and tips.


Some guys and I came up with a way to workout while at work. It is easy and only takes 2 minutes out of each hour tops. We work 4, 10hr days. Every odd hour, we do a set of pushups and every even hour we do a set of pullups. I've worked up to 700 pushups per day and 70 pullups per day. Believe me, it works.

Experiencing the rock opera Rent once again

Guest post written by Maxine Forester

I remember years ago when I was on vacation with my husband in New York and we decided to go and see RENT on Broadway. It was so much fun! Plus, so emotional. It was exactly what we had in mind when we knew that we wanted to watch a play when we were there. As soon as there was even a mention of going to New York on a mini vacation, we knew that we would have to go and see the play's revival for old time's sake.

It's easy to forget that the play is actually a rock opera. It has such a popular following that you would think of it as just a musical, or sometimes I forget and think of it as that way. While I was online finding us tickets, I ran across the site I looked through it a little bit and after that I decided to go and get fitted with some hearing aids before our big trip.

I did just that and was able to enjoy the Rent rock opera even more than the first time that we saw it! I guess this time around we can really appreciate it even more, which made it that much better.


I am so ready for Thanksgiving. I think it is my favorite holiday. It is a time to get together with family and friends without all of the commercialism of Christmas. It also seems like it is just more laid back and less busy than Christmas. Also, it helps that there is always good football games on that you can watch with all the family. Thanksgiving: Thank God for food, family, and football!


My wife works in the medical field, and, of course, she has to wear uniforms/scrubs. Now this wouldn't be bad, except it's hard to dress "cute" in scrubs. She not only has to match from head to toe, but she has to wear something fashionable. I could tell some funny stories about me trying to slip out of the house with non-matching clothes, or wrinkled clothes.

She has found a site, however,, where she can find and order some cute, fashionable uniforms. This is a great site to find anything like shirts, labcoats, scrub hats and just nice scrubs. It is a great site to find quality nursing uniforms. If you're interested in these, you should definitely check it out.


Several of my coworkers have been doing zumba after work. They all gather in the front lobby and follow along to zumba videos on youtube that they watch using a Tivo Premiere. They have a great time. They have been doing this for a couple of months now and they have all lost weight and feel like they are in better shape. I will keep you posted as to how long this lasts and how well they are progressing in their weight loss objective.

Smoke Damage

I have an acquaintance that recently had a freak kitchen fire. He had virtually no physical fire destruction but his whole first floor was almost completely ruined by the smoke. All of the walls were completely black and most of his possessions looked like they were beyond reclamation. Of course, the insurance company was not much help. They almost seemed to not care if the house got cleaned or not. I think they thought it would be easier to say the damage was beyond repair instead of trying to help my friend get it cleaned. However, he was able to hire a cleaning crew that came in and did a marvelous job. They were able to clean the walls and most possessions to the point that you would never know they were damaged. It was actually pretty amazing and I think the walls are actually cleaner than before the fire. If you are interested in how to clean up smoke damage austin I suggest you check out for lots of good information and how to get this professional team to repair your site.

Exercise Burn

Man, I am sore. I just started a new exercise program similar to P90X and it is whipping my butt. I can just take solace in the fact that the exercise burn that my muscles are feeling means that I am burning calories as well.

Drug Abuse

Drug abuse is one of the most serious problems facing our nation today. I heard a news announcement yesterday on the radio about drug abuse. It said that about ninety percent of all crime is related to drugs in some way. It also said that about seventy five percent of drug users admitted to using drugs in the workplace. The announcement was encouraging employers to assist employees in getting treatment for their drug problems and in turn this could curb the effects of drug abuse on our country's crime rate and family unit breakdowns.

I have a friend that has a family member that has a problem with drug addiction. He overdosed a few weeks ago and she had to leave work to check on him at the hospital. They had to pump his stomach among other things. Lately she has been looking for a drug abuse rehab center to enroll him in. He has been to one before but he returned to his old problem. My friend was looking on the internet for information on different centers. She thinks it is important to find one that is well established with many years experience. She also feels that it is important that the drug abuse rehab center has experience in treating different problems, involves family members in the treatment, and incorporates both intensive outpatient and inpatient services. I just hope he gets the help that he needs wherever he goes. I'll be praying for him, and I hope you will too.
