More and more as I go throughout my daily chores and errands, I see a lot more people with tattoos! Honestly, I don’t understand the popularity of them at all. Most of the people that I know that have had tattoos for a long time tell me that they wish that they had never gotten them. The tattoos have faded, or run, and don’t look good anymore. And a lot of times people have been discriminated against because of the tattoos that they have gotten.

Although I have seen a lot of really pretty, nice looking tattoos, I think that it is a mistake to get them, it costs a lot to have them removed and that procedure hurts a lot more than getting the tattoo in the first place.

IED Up Close

It is truly amazing that more of our soldiers weren’t getting hit and hurt by these things. My best friends son is serving in the Army and sent her this video and she sent it to me. Amazing, truly. God Bless each and every one of them that are serving their country for you and me.

It Runs In The Family

It is so very awesome that we plus sized women now have a larger selection of clothes available to us, in stores, in catalogs and online, as well. It has always been a chore trying to find stylish, trendy, comfortable and affordable Women’s Plus Size fashions, up until just about the turn of the century.

Being big boned runs in the family, both my father’s and my mother’s side is full of nothing but large woman, so I was doomed right from the get go, sigh… I am happy to say that the “fat gene” isn’t prevalent, just the big bones. No diet or exercise does much good, something that we all have learned the hard way through out the many years. Dieting doesn’t do a thing to reduce the large bones that so many of us have to deal with on a daily basis.



The Nopal Cactus

It is amazing to notice that the older I get, everyone gets older as well. I know that sounds silly but with age seems to come so many health issues and unfortunate deaths from so many people in my life. At work we seem to always be discussing and researching so many medical issues that keep popping up in our immediate and not so immediate families and circle of friends. And with all of these medical issues always landing in our laps we are constantly trying to figure out and understand what types of medicine and therapy can help.

Right now we seem to be hearing a lot about a product called Nopalea which is supposed to help reduce inflammation which is a main concern with so many health related issues. One of my co workers found that by calling 1-800-203-7063 you can receive a free sample of this natural health product that is becoming so popular today which is derived from a cactus. Pretty cool huh?

Since my father suffers from aches and pains in several of his joints that keep him from doing a lot of things that he used to enjoy doing, I’m going to go ahead a call and have a sample of these wellness drink sent to him and see if it helps him some. It’s the least I can do for the man that has always done so much for me all my life.


Sweets as a Substitute for Nicotine

I would really like to quit smoking. A friend of mine suggested eating Jelly Beans when I finally make the decision to put them down once and for all. After all President Ronald Reagan used them successfully when he quit smoking back in the 1960’s and made the Jelly Bean industry a pretty penny with a major come back due to the publicity of it all.

Jelly Beans, from that time on on were not just for Easter any more. Starburst Jelly Beans are and have always been my favorite and if I could find an online Wholesale Candy company that I could buy some in bulk, in anticipation of the “quitting date” I would be willing to place an order for a decent price. Something to put on my ever growing, never ending, to do list.

If I find myself having a craving for chocolate I can always count on a Clark Bar satisfying the immediate desires. Clark Bars haven’t changed a bit all these years, along with the Snickers Bar they both have always been on top of my list. Some things thankfully never change.

I’ve been smoking for over 20 years, I’m sure that if I quit I’d feel much better all the way around, mentally and health wise as well. I know I’d save a good amount of money that could be put to much better use.
