109 Year Old Holocaust Survivor With Answer to a Happier Life

I feel inadequate after listening to this woman.  With what she’s lived through, she chooses to see life as she describes. I know how to do it, so what allows me to forget, which I pay for.  That too must be a choice that I wish to will change right here, right now.   The video is only 1 min 21 seconds.

The incredibly embarrassing cold sore and how to prevent it

Yep, many of you can prevent a cold sore from surfacing, but you must be on top of it. When you feel that early warning ‘tingle’, you must take an antiviral medication or apply a good remedy right at the stage or you’re sunk.  Take it from my friend, Katie Holmes.


Once it starts to erupt (redness, a small bump, swelling, etc.), the sooner you address it, the better success you’ll have to keep it smaller and heal faster.  Results can vary among individuals how well this will work, but also a factor is the severity of the current infection.  Super-extraordinary stress and fatigue, for instance, can trigger a more severe infection.

There are FDA-approved medications available, but for those who prefer to go the more natural route, there are options people swear by.  Taking lysine supplements is a popular option. You’d be suprised by what some ‘natural’ enthusiasts apply – ear wax!  I’ve never been clear if it’s important that it’s yours or can be from a ‘donor’, LOL.

What works great for one may not for another, but a good place to start is to research consumer reviews.

Fortune Hi-Tech reps-you were meant to be here instead

As a network marketer myself, my heart goes out to you.  But I bring good news.

I belong to a global shopping network who’s founder has dotted every ‘i’ and crossed every ‘T’ to ensure it will be here for the long term.  No autoships, no joining or website fees.

I’m simply re-directing my everyday expenses, such as groceries, gas, clothing, travel, home maintenance supplies, pet care and more to retailers partnered with the network. And it doesn’t cost me more to do that, it saves me money.

There’s nothing like this out there that can and is helping consumers and businesses.  I get particular satisfaction as I see small and medium size businesses grow in their communities due to their partnership in the network.

This network offers 10 ways to earn money.  The following is but one of them.

Finally! Costco now selling womens’ plus size clothing

I found it in the most recent edition of the February 2013 Costco Connection, a cotton cardigan and Gloria Vanderbilt jeans.  They’re only available in warehouse, not on website.  Tidbit – did you know that Gloria Vanderbilt is Anderson Cooper’s mom?

Chronic Nose Bleeds – Finally Found a Solution

So I wasn't the first person with the tampax idea.

So I wasn’t the first person with the tampax idea.

I don’t recall ever having a bloody nose until five years ago.  I would bend over to tie my shoe lace or attach my dog’s leash to his collar, and blood would pour. At first, it would happen every few days, then every day, then several times a day.  Staining clothes, pillow cases, carpet, the embarrassment of when it happened in public.  Each occurrence took 30 minutes to stop.  Day after day for three months.  Then nothing. No sign of a bloody nose for five or six months, then it would start again for a few months.

I had my nose cauterized three times, didn’t work.  I didn’t blow my nose as recommended, I cleaned out my nasal passages with a netti pot and salt water, I placed Vaseline in my nose to keep in moistened.  Read about certain herbs, all failed.  I dangled my keys on the back of my neck (a folk remedy suggested by a neighbor).  Nope.

So for the past 5 years, several months off and on during the course of the year, my nose bled like there was no tomorrow. Then, I found a website with the solution, taking a capsule of Cool Cayenne and a Vitamin C with bioflavinoids once a day. The nose bleeds slowed to a stop over the next few days until it stopped altogether.  Occasionally, there were recurrences but very minor .  It’s been 10 months, can’t believe what a life saver it has been.  Last week, I was lazy and didn’t take the supplements for five days, then my nose started to pour like before.


Here’s the website I came across.  If you suffer with the same problem, you must give this a try.  If you read the comments below the article, some people needed to take two doses of each a day to reach success.  BTW, the Cool Cayenne has never irritated by stomach.

Most any health food store or vitamin supplement website will carry the Cool Cayenne and the Vitamin C with bioflavonoids.


I doing something risky here by mentioning anything about politics, but it comes from a non-dogmatic point of view and, in fact, I respect everyone’s opinion, even if I might not agree or understand it.  And I always understand I could be wrong.

I’ve been a lifetime liberal, not only due to family influence but my nature seems to swing that way. I voted for Obama, but now question if he’s the best candidate to deal with the unique problems we have today.  But I have the same concerns about Governor Romney, as well.  

I’ve found the candidate that will get the job done, former Governor of New Mexico, Libertarian Gary Johnson.  Yes, I know it’s a longshot that he could win, and although blocked by the Democrat/Republican Debate Committee from participating, he will be on the ballot.  He’s socially progressive and yet fiscally conservative.  He’s used his extraordinary skills as a businessman, and against all odds, left the beleaguered state of New Mexico with a surplus.  More, he achieved the impossible – he’s actually well thought of by most everyone in the State.  To read his story is incredible, to see his website what he will do as President, will resonate for many of you.   You’ve heard the definition of insanity – doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results?  Believe me, he’s not afraid of change - big change. His website, http://www.GaryJohnson2012.com. 

The reason I’m writing about this at all, he’ll be in speaking in Fullerton on October 22nd where you’ll have a chance to meet him, see what he’s about up front and person, and ask questions. 


4-minute workout for maximum aerobics & sustained metabolism

woman after workout

I like this, she doesn’t appear to be sweating :)

I should exercise for all the health benefits it provides but including weight loss for which I’ve had life-long issues.  One deterrant has been that I just don’t like to sweat, that’s why I hate humidity.  So in the past, whenever I feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes :).

So why is it on my mind now?  The mirror.  What the hell happened to me while I wasn’t watching??

I’m all about convenience, so found the “world’s fastest workout”, a 4 minute routine.  It was developed by a Japanese scientist to increase aerobic capacity as well as increase metabolism for up to 36 hours.   I’m too out-of-shape to do this now, but it’s what I’m going to work up to.

Choose to see the world through new eyes.
