“Tell a woman that she needs surgery, and she won’t bat an eye. Tell her to sleep in and drink orange juice, and she freaks out.” – Erma Bombeck
On an old woman’s shirt was written, “I am not 80 years old. I am sweet 16 with 64 years experience.” That’s attitude. – unknown
This message is about those of you who have reached the age of 30, or older. I picture you as probably possibly married, having one or more children and working. You could have completed your education, have a job, and a husband, (maybe not that last item). I think of you as you get up each morning, take care of your family’s needs before your own. Then get ready for your daily routine and leave for work.
One of those chores is choosing an outfit to wear that day. Maybe you are tired of your clothes and accessories and need something new. I can help with that. There is nothing like a bright new necklace to make an old dress or pant suit show off your style. I make jewelry for you.
I make necklaces, bracelets and earrings that are suitable for the workplace. The colors of my creations are bright and the styles are very different. Every item is unusual and one-of-a-kind, not to be seen as ordinary. They can make an old outfit sparkle like new.
Just to let you know, some of my creations would be perfect for a night out with your favorite person.
So, I invite you to take a few minutes and browse through my multiple varieties of colorful selections in the three sites listed below. I think you might find the selection and prices worth your time. There is something about wearing a new accessory that will perk up your day. I hope you find it in my creations.

STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters….S. T. R.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) …she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
RECOGNIZING A STROKE
Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR. Read and
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S * Ask the individual to SMILE.
T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A
SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. Chicken Soup)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call the emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke: Stick out Your Tongue!
Stroke has a new indicator for Blood Clots/Stroke – New 4th Indicator, the Tongue
Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other, these are also an indication of a stroke.
It is hard to be a woman. You must think like a man, act like a lady, look like a young girl and work like a horse. Unknown
I was just informed that there is a free service provided for any woman currently undergoing chemotherapy. It’s called Cleaning for a Reason and provides FREE housecleaning once a month for 4 months while she is in treatment. The only requirement is for the woman to sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. A participating maid service in her zip code area will arrange for the service. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has over 500 partners to help these women.
The link to obtain this wonderful help is http://www.cleaningforareason.org/
Please pass the word along to anyone you know who would appreciate this offer.
I accidentally found a very informative and interesting site a few days ago. It is called Lifelong Health and the url is http://www.lifelonghealth.com/
Once you get onto the site you will be hooked. You won’t want to leave. There is so much to see there, articles on every aspect of life. I am copying one here because it is the one that drew me to the site. It is about dreams. I dream every night, every time I am asleep and some are disturbing. They remain in my thoughts long after I waken. I found the article informative and interesting. The following is from the owner of the site.
Hi, I’m Lois Trader
I am a two-time survivor of a life-threatening disease and a woman who has lived through bankruptcy, not only financially but physically, psychologically and spiritually. Now I’m a successful, positive, driven woman.
Being a physically fit woman at 47 years of age, my life was changed in a heart beat. My personal journey of being diagnosed with heart disease and learning to live with it has inspired me to help others who are also concerned about their health. No matter where you are in your journey, let’s work together to live the best life possible.
I’m excited to get to know you here on Lifelong Health. I look forward to getting to know you and learning together.
Do you remember your dreams? Do you understand their meaning? Do you wish your dream could last longer. Are you the only one who is having long vivid dreams? Below are four interesting facts about dreams.
Crazy dream equals emotion: While it can be hard to believe that an oddball dream about your mother, a circus and a snowstorm can have any bearing on real life, there may be symbolism and potential meaning to be mined in every dream—you just have to look for it, says Harvard-trained psychotherapist Jeffrey Sumber. “The meaning of our dreams oftentimes relates to things we need to understand about ourselves and the world around us,” he says. Instead of shrugging off strange dreams, think about how they make you feel. “We tend to dismiss these dreams due to the strange components, yet it is the feeling we have in these dreams that matters most,” he explains. “Sometimes the circus and the snowstorm are just fillers that allow us to process the range of emotions we feel about our mother and give us the necessary distraction so we can actually experience that spectrum of emotion.”
Tons of Dreams: It’s not just one dream per night, but rather dozens of them, say experts—you just may not remember them all. “We dream every 90 minutes throughout the night, with each cycle of dreaming being longer than the previous,” explains Lauri Quinn Loewenberg, a dream expert. “
The first dream of the night is about 5 minutes long and the last dream you have before awakening can be 45 minutes to an hour long.” It is estimated that most people have more than 100,000 dreams in a lifetime.
Dream after you are awake? After a vivid dream it can be hard to fully wake up. It can be hard to concentrate until you get that dream replaced with reality. Or have you ever woken up from such a beautiful, perfect dream that you wished you could go back to sleep to soak it all up? This is how you can. Just lie still—don’t move a muscle—and you can remain in a semi-dreamlike state for a few minutes. “The best way to remember your dreams is to simply stay put when you wake up,” says Loewenberg. “Remain in the position you woke up in, because that is the position you were dreaming in. When you move your body, you disconnect yourself from the dream you were just in seconds ago.”
Same dream over and over again. Loewenberg suggests looking for underlying messages in recurring dreams so that you can rid yourself of them.
For example, a common recurring nightmare people have involves losing or cracking their teeth. For this dream, she recommends that people think about what your teeth and your mouth represent. “To the dreaming mind, your teeth, as well as any part of your mouth, are symbolic of your words,” she says. “Paying attention to your teeth dreams helps you to monitor and improve the way you communicate.”
My eldest daughter is an exceptional woman. She has created at least 2 jobs on her own to make a living. She consults, advises, repairs and teaches everything you would ever want on your computer. She has 20 years experience in this and now has made it her occupation. Her other job is taking care of people who need a ride, temporary care, errands done, practically anything. These two jobs alone take up most of her time, but when she isn’t busy she writes.
She is in the process of composing a book which will answer any question anyone could ever have about computers. She also does articles for publication in regional small papers or world wide article publishers.
Then, she always makes time for me. I frequently have problems such as my computer misbehaving, a doctor’s appointment, changing my clock when the time changes or the electricity goes out, whatever I need, whenever I need it. She will drop everything to help me. She charges other people to do this, but I get it free. Lucky me to have her.
