But it looks like these bulbs are not as picture perfect as previously thought. A recent study has found that some of these energy-saving fluorescent bulbs (particularly those 'open' light bulbs, which are not surrounded by a glass case.) can cause reddening of the skin if used close to the body and for longer periods of time. UV radiation from these unencapsulated energy-saving bulbs can damage the skin if used closer than 30cm to the body, the experts warn."

Thanksgiving's over,...Christmas???

Like it or not, another year is almost over; Christmas is here. Last night I was talking to a friend, and I told him that everytime I thought I had all the Christmas presents bought, I remembered another one I had to buy. I just can not seem to get everything together.

I have to buy some more toys for my cousins; however, everything that they want is so expensive. My 12 year old cousins wants a nintendo wii. Ridiculous, right? Well, great gifts and cheap toys can be found at

So if you need gift ideas, you should check savebucket out. I think you'll find what you are looking for. It really does not matter whether you are looking for a gift for a two year old or a fifteen year old, I promise you that you can find what you are looking for. I know I have. I don not know what I would have done without savebuckets. As bad as I hate shopping, I would have gone absolutely crazy. Thank God for savebuckets.

Nasty weather could equal bad day...

It's been raining all day, which ruined my morning bike ride. I guess I could have ridden anyway, but I just decided to be lazy and wait on the Georgia vs Georgia Tech game. Georgia Tech has a great shot today, which worries me. They have a great running game that will help them in this kind of weather. Oh well, hopefully the Dawgs can pull it out.

Online degree...

Two of my best friends have been laid off now. One has got a new born baby boy. Both are hard working guys who have always worked for what they have; however, neither one of them have any kind of post secondary education. With the economy like it is, both are considering going back to school for a college or tech degrees. I know they are not the only ones going back to school because of being unemployed. The question is, what is the right and most secure field to go in to?

As I alluded to earlier, because the economy is so bad, it is really hard to find work; but with just a high school diploma or a GED, it is even tougher. If you are in this situation, you should visit This site helps you find the best schools, programs, and schedules for your situation. There are several online degrees you can look over, research, and choose from. It lists schools with programs ranging from culinary arts to criminal justice to nursing. Nursing is one field that there is and will always be a demand for. It does not matter if you want an associate degree or if you want a doctorate, degreehound will help you find the right school and schedule for you. A degree will help your career tremendously.

Tips to a healthier life...

1. Move More

2. Cut Fat

3. Quit Smoking

4. Reduce Stress

5. Protect Yourself from Pollution

6. Wear Your Seat Belt

7. Floss Your Teeth

8. Avoid Excessive Drinking

9. Keep a Positive Mental Outlook

10. Choose Your Parents Well

Debt Consilidation...

How bad is this economic situation going to get? Does anyone really have a clue? There are some things that you can do to make your financial situation a little better, though. There is nothing worse than having to pay several different bills and each at a different interest rate. Really, when you think about it, interest is what really breaks. For example, imagine that you are paying your car payment at 6 percent, some other loan at 8 percent, and yet another at 7.5 percent. Would you believe that there is a better way to pay the bills.

It is much better to pay one monthly bill at one, lower interest rate. You can easily make one payment a month that equals or is lower than the 3 or 4 you were paying separately. But that's not it. With the extra cash you will have per month, you can double up on that one monthly payment, and pay your bills off suprisingly early. Believe me debt consolidation is better than other alternatives, including bankruptcy.

If you're struggling with too many monthly bills, then you should definitely visit It's worth it. It will free up more money than you can imagine. It's worth a look


I guess it's the unusually cold weather we've been having, but my right knee has been killing me lately. I've tried stretching it, popping it and other stuff, but none of it works. I don't know what it it, but it's definitely hindering my regular exercises.

Prescription drugs...

As you well know, you can spend a ton on medicine. I'm always looking for ways to save money, especially with the economy like it is. Canadian Online Pharmacy safe, secure, and cost-saving way to get your medicine. It is not an online pharmacy, but it is a service that helps you find a pharmacy in a safe and trustworthy environment. Through this program, you can find fully licensed pharmacies worldwide that offer discount medicines.

This, believe me, is a great site. They guarantee you that they will have the lowest prices online, and they are willing to put money on it. They will beat any other licensed Canadian Pharmacy by 10% if you find a lower price for the same product. You can also make money here. They have a Online Pharmacy Affiliate Program
you can join to earn a little extra cash.

Cold Weather...

Well, it's that time of year again. If you hate cold weather, but like exercising outside, I'm not sure what to tell you; just bundle up and get after it. Cold weather should not be an excuse to be lazy.

Debt Relief

As you all know times are tough. The economy is in a downward spiral, and everyone is going to have to start looking for ways to cut costs and tighten up their budget. The people who are going to be especially affected by this are those who are already heavily in debt. As inflation rises faster than wages, these people will find it increasingly difficult to make their minimum monthly payments. There are several methods for these people to find Debt Relief. One option is credit counseling. Credit counseling organizations act as intercessors between you and those who you are in debt to. They usually try to get you a lower interest rate and eliminate the fees you pay allowing you to make your payments and get out of debt in about five years. Debt consolidation is another option. This option transfers the debt you owe to several creditors to only one. Meaning you only have one monthly payment instead of several, and many times this is at a lower interest rate. This is an okay option as long as you are disciplined enough not to increase your debt to those creditors you just freed up. Bankruptcy is a way to be rid of all of your debt; however, it will stay on your record for at least seven years and potentially impact all of your future financial and employment dealings. One final option is Freedom Debt Relief's Debt Reduction Program. Under this plan FDR acts as a mediator between you and your creditors. Unlike credit counseling organizations, they attempt to actually reduce your outstanding balance. They look at your debt load and come up with an amount that you need to save up in order to make a settlement offer to the creditors, and then they negotiate the settlement. Once the settlement is accepted and paid, FDR gets the creditors to report it to the credit bureaus as paid. So if you need Debt Relief in these tough times, you have several options, but I definitely suggest you try Freedom Debt Relief's Debt Reduction Program.

Shoes first...

One thing that can bring you down quickly is shoes that hurt your feet. I'm not only talking about when you're exercising, but I'm talking about throughout the day. Wearing shoes that don't fit, or aren't right for your foot, can effect the body in many different ways. It can cause back pains, shin pains, and of course, feet pains. After trying several different work boots, I finally settled on Justins. Believe me, you can hardly do anything productive if your body hurts because of your shoes. Anyway, after all that rambling, if you're trying to settle on the perfect work boots, you should check out It's offers many different boot options to choose from. It's a great site.

I thought my football Saturday was going to be spoiled for the second week in a row; however, Georgia pulled out a last minute squeaker against Kentucky. Sure, it wasn't impressive, but it was a W. Go Dawg!

Hunting Binoculars

It is now deer hunting season here in Georgia. One of the most used pieces of equipment for serious hunters is a good pair of binoculars. Probably, the most widely known and reputable optic enhancing tool is the Nikon All Terrain Binoculars. They are rugged enough to withstand all of the abuse that comes with hunting, whether it is water damage or being dropped out of a tree. The Nikon binoculars come in many different models from full size to compact size to camouflage to vibration resistant models. If that is not enough to make you go and buy this necessary hunting tool then consider the fact that Nikon is giving away gift cards with qualified purchases of their binoculars. So if you buy a pair of Nikon binoculars now you can also get other Free ATB Pro Gear.

The Heart.

Everyone knows that it is very important to keep the heart as healthy as possible. That's one reason cardio exercises are so crucial. I have a couple of family members that have have several heart bypass surgery. One is doing great now, of course she still has to see her cardiologist regularly; the other hardly has the strength to walk around the house.

Watching two of my aunts struggle with heart problems has made me more conscience of taking care of my heart. The medical field has come so far with correcting heart problems in the past few years. A person can now have Robotic heart surgery, which is better than the traditional heart surgery. Recovery time is not as long, and the pain is not as bad.

If you need heart surgery, such as Coronary artery bypass surgery, I would suggest you visit for information.

Big Day...

Today is a huge day if you're a Florida or Georgia fan. I, as you may remember, am a Georgia fan. It should be a great game. I just hope the Dawgs can pull it out. I'm a littler nervous though.
