Back Injury

About three days ago, I guess I had moved off of the washer wrong and really messed up my back pretty good. I just have a tendancy to sit on it eventhough I probably should not. I am not ecactly sure what I had done to it, but it feels like my spine is being pushed together. Either that or I have bruised the bones. I have not went to the doctor yet, as I am waiting to see if it will heal on its own. Moving around is very difficult, but tolerated somewhat. I just feel like I have jammed the sinal column together. Laying down seems to ease the pain if I am perfectly still, but we all know that I just can not lay still until it does decide to get better. I am still willing to give it a few days before I just decide to break down and go to the doctor to make sure nothing is to having a disc injury, pinched nerve or something. A chiropractor sounds good, but the pain in the spine is just too much to even consider that yet, besides I rather have my doctor look at it. Sure don't need it popped or messed with. Then to think that I would have to clean house today! I really hope that it does get better.

Only In America For A Laugh

For A Laugh

Only in drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while the healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in people order double cheese, large fries, and a diet coke.

Only in banks leave the vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counter.

Only in we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.

Only in they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.


Why the sun lightens our hair and darkens our skin?

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why don't you ever see the headline ' Psychic Wins Lottery'?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

Why is lemonade made with artificial flavoring and dish washing liquid is made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called the rush hour?

Why isn't there a mouse- flavored cat food?

Why didn't Moses swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff!?

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

I like this one!!! If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

If flying is so safe why do they call the airport the terminal?

Thanks to Aunt Kat, Bob, and the original writer Tharpsbigandy!!

Swarovski Crystal Glass On Benz Cars

How would you like to have a new car for Valentine's Day? I saw this and had to share it with you. These two cars, the customized Mercedes-Benz SL600s and the Luxury Crystal Benz are studded with 300,000 Swarovski crystal glass. These cars were displayed at the pavilion of custom car accessory company Garson/D.A.D at Tokyo Auto Salon 2010 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on January 15, 2010. They are just absolutely beautiful. The LUXUO Luxury Blog has a few pictures of these wonderful cars. Wonder what one of these would cost... Probably not for sale though. Too bad for us!

If you are looking for some Swarovski crystal for yourself, then maybe you can find something here at Crystal Classics. You might be able to find a great Valentine's Day gift here that uses Swarovski crystals.

Air Purifiers For Your Home And Car

In the near future, my family and I want to buy an air purifier for our home. We live in a very dusty place, and it is so bad that we can not breathe anymore. Dust will pile up everywhere within a matter of a few days. Since I enjoy shopping at Wal-Mart, I found just what I was looking for. This Ionic Pro combo air purifier plus bonus car air purifier will be our best solution. The price is reasonable as well, just $98.66 online. Then, I can have one for my car as well that will plug into a cigarette lighter. I plan to buy for each end of the house, and hopefully it will help us all out. If you are having problems with dust and dirt in your home, then I recommend trying this product out. It has been rated 4 out of 5 from other shoppers at Wal-Mart, you can read the Ionic Pro reviews as well before you decide if this product is right for you.

There are a few pages to choose from, and I hope that you will enjoy using them.

Zicam: FDA Advises You To Discontinue Use

I had received an email from my aunt that was claiming that Zicam can cause olfactory damage. In the email a women named Mary shared her story about using Zicam and was experiencing problems with the product. Here is her story:

I want my friends and loved ones to know what has happened to me in hopes that it will never happen to you or anybody you care about. About 10 days ago, I felt a cold coming on; so before I went to bed I used Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel. It's supposed to help you "get over your cold faster." Immediately after I sprayed it into each nostril I felt the most horrific burning sensation imaginable. It literally felt like I had sprayed pepper spray directly into my brain.. It burned all the way to the top of my skull. My nasal passages swelled, my eyes watered - the burning lasted all night long into the next day..

After about a day, I realized I couldn't taste anything and I thought, "Wow - I must really have a bad cold." Then I noticed that I couldn't smell coffee brewing, couldn't smell my perfume when I put it on, couldn't smell the popcorn I burned, couldn't smell my favorite candle. I panicked and starting smelling everything that I could find that had really strong odors - ammonia, finger nail polish remover, bleach, etc. I couldn't smell ANYTHING! I started tasting everything that had really strong tastes such as HOT salsa, raw red onions, Doritos, coffee. I couldn't taste ANYTHING!

I told my mother about this and she said, "Oh, I've heard Zicam can affect your Olfactory nerve." I went online, typed in "Zicam side effects" and bam - up popped all sorts of web sites with people reporting the same thing I experienced. It seems that this past June, Zicam pulled the swabs for adults and children off the shelf but not the nasal gel.

I went to my ENT and he said the Zicam had basically "FRIED" my Olfactory nerve and the results are most likely permanent. He put me on a strong dose of a steroid called Prednisone in hopes of recovering ANY bit of the nerve damage but he told me to "take this and pray." He said he had read about the side effects of Zicam and couldn't believe it is still on the shelf. It isn't FDA approved. I am taking the Prednisone and praying but nothing is happening. I LITERALLY CANNOT SMELL OR TASTE ANYTHING! I can tell if foods are hot or cold, I can tell the consistency and I can faintly detect if it is salty but that is it.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pass this on to everyone you care about. I don't want this to happen to ANYONE else!!!!!!!!!! And if you have Zicam in your medicine cabinet--THROW IT AWAY!

In the email a link was provided from the FDA advising users not to use Zicam.
Three forms of Zicam are being questioned, and they are as follows:

Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Gel
Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs
Zicam Cold Remedy Swabs, Kids Size (a discontinued product)

Up to 130 people have reported a loss of smell due to the products, and so many have not reported the side effect. If you are experiencing side effects from Zicam, you can report them to MedWatch Online Reporting Form 3500.

Please report this to anyone you know who uses Zicam.

Get Rid Of The Mop And Bucket With Hoover

About 3 or 4 years ago, I had bought a Hoover Floor Mate to replace my mop. This product allows you to get rid of the mop and bucket and use a machine to clean your hard floors. Since every floor in my home is hard, I am thankful that I have this. It cleans, scrubs, and dries your floors without breaking your back to get the job done. Another reason why I love this product is because when the boys are taking their bath, they tend to get water all over the bathroom and into the hallway. With my Floor Mate, I can just vacuum up the water. It also has a dry vacuum mode so sweeping the floor has also been eliminated. machine for all the ways you can clean a hard floor. I had bought my Hoover Floor Mate from Wal-Mart for about $140.00, but I am not sure if they still carry the brand/model. The model that I have is a H3000. I had looked it up and Wal-Mart did not have one at the time. I did find one on Ebay, and some other places, so I suggest that you Google Hoover Floor Mate to see if you can find one online. There are many different models to choose from as well, and prices will vary. So if you are tired of a dirty mop and bucket, then I recommend a Hoover Floor Mate for all your hard floors and other water messes. Thank you for reading on this 21st day of January 2010, and I hope that you will consider purchasing this wonderful product.

Bath Spa's At Home

Over the weekend my mother in law gave me a Conair Bath Spa, and I absolutely love it. It fits most standard bath tubs and is a lot of fun to use. It has three suction cups that hold it to the side of your bath tub with a very long cord so I can plug it up in the hallway without having it in the bathroom. The bath spa has dual jets that deliver a powerful wave or bubbles in your tub. I have always wanted something like this since I am a big fan of jacuzzi's. You can find one of these at Wal-mart. I looked online there and found a similar model to the one that I have. You can click the link above to find one at Wal-mart. If you have tired, sore and achy muscles then I recommend this product to you. It is really nice to have when you are relaxing from a hard day at work or when you are at home with the kids. Hope that you will try this for yourself, I am sure that you will enjoy it as well. Having a spa at home is every women's dream, so try it out today. They usually run about $40.00, and a dream to have. Hope that you will enjoy yours as much as I do mine. Worried about it falling into the water? No need to, it is designed to where you will not get electrocuted if it does get in the water. Not recommended for children! By the way today is January 20, 2010. Hope that you have a wonderful day, and thanks for reading.

Obama Alien Defense from Miniclip

Eddie had found this game on called Obama Alien Defense. It is a really funny game this is a lot of fun to play. You go around helping the President fight aliens, and collecting Presidential coins. Devin thought that Obama was really funny as he kind of looks like a bobble head. You are allowed to place the game on your website or blog, so I have placed it here for you to play. I hope that you will give it a try and see just how much fun it really is. Enjoy, and let us know how well you liked or disliked the game.

Happy New Year

It is finally 2010, and we are glad that it is here. The boys woke me up at 5:00 this morning, and we have been up for two hours. They are being loud, and I am hoping that they do not wake their dad up. After taking Eddie off of Adderall, he seems to be doing better but somewhat loud at times. We had a quiet Christmas at home. The boys got anxious just before when we started putting presents under the tree, and they are still enjoying their presents instead of going back to their old toys like they sometimes do. They are playing with their Transformers now, and really enjoying it. Eddie's voice is loud, so I have to tell him to keep it down. Well, guess that I better get on to doing other things. I really need to have the house totally clean today, so off I go to do that one. Hope you all have a great New Year's Day!
