Tooth Paste

I’m getting to the age where my teeth are getting sensitive and I’ve had to start buying the type of toothpaste for folks like me that don’t like pain. I have to be careful with hot things, sweet things and cold things that I try and place in my mouth which is a real drag. I’m glad that they (the toothpaste industry) have something that helps prevent such agony.

Birthday Chocolates

It must really bite to have a birthday so close to Christmas. No matter what they say, you will get robbed of at least one or more of the celebrations, most likely several in your life time. My sister was born on December the 22nd and since she has become a mother she really has put her needs and wants behind everyone else, just like a good mother does. She hasn’t really celebrated her own birthday in many years, although I make a point of sending her a birthday present well ahead of time so that it doesn’t get lost in the holiday madness that goes on that last week before Christmas.

This year I ordered her some good quality chocolates that I have discovered online. She can squirrel them away some where away from her hubby and the kids and hopefully enjoy these nice chocolates all to her self, unless of course some are left over when I get over that a way after the holidays are done and over with. I always enjoy a nice piece of chocolate myself, but can only take so much as a time.


I’ve got way too many cats running around here! Lets see now, in the neutered male division we have a large red, (from whence he got his name, “Red”), and a rather large and imposing solid black, who goes by the name of “Rocky”. In the spayed female ranks we have “Wild Thing”, sometimes referred to as “Momma Cat”, and a big fluffy grey we call “Jada”.

The newest of the bunch is a small striped grey that looks a lot like “Wild Thing”, in coloring, yet to be spayed. They all eat way too much and to top it all off they are all save the kitten bigger than my one house dog, a small female purebred shizu. The dog is nuttier then a fruitcake and twice as dumb! But ya gotta love her, she’s just so darn cute!

Flip Skateboards, The History Of

One sport that I never really had the opportunity to get involved in and my age now prevents me from participating in it now a days, is skate boarding. We did do some skate boarding as a kid, but it was no where near as popular and specialized as it is these days. It has become a very “hot” source of entertainment and has prompted a large population to get on these new, bigger and better, skate boards that are being available for this sport. I just know that if I were to try something like that now, at my age, that I would end up in the hospital and no one would be able to take care of the farm and all that goes along with the running of all the things that are important to take care of on a daily basis.

Flip skateboards are a type of board that I had not heard of and was reading about at, where they explain that these flip skateboards came about originally in the 1980’s in the U.K, they were first referred to as “Deathbox Skateboards” and were later named Flip in 1991 and then moved to California in 1994.

Along with this article they had some good photo’s and tons of products regarding to all types of this skateboarding craze, no matter what type, style or brand. You can even customize the building of your own boards here, short or long, no matter, they have it all. A good site to check out.

Lap Band

Lap band seems to become a very popular way for people to reduce their weight, which is a good thing all the way around. I’ve just heard that a family member (a distant cousin) who lives out in California, just received this surgical procedure and couldn’t be happier or healthier. He has been struggling with weight issues from day one, that side of the family comes from “large stock” but he is the first one to have this done, so I’m sure the rest will be following in suit soon.

He had the procedure done by a company that he located online at Topsurgeons dot com, where he read lap band testimonials a plenty and called their toll free phone number of 1-800-GET-SLIM and talked at great length with their top surgeons before consenting to have this new and improved procedure done for himself, which has changed his life so drastically.

To watch their lap band before and after video, one only has to go to their website, it has a lot to offer people that are contemplating this type of procedure. You may also receive a free lap band finance evaluation and see all the other procedures that they are offering in their many California locations.
