  1. Preparedness and Survival
    I was reading something and it stressed that a person should stay physically fit to prepare for a crisis. It makes sense to me- someone who is physically fit may be able to handle stress and other situations better than someone who would get winded quickly. Since I can't do much to prep in...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Heard an interesting and somewhat surprising statistic today on an older Dave Ramsey podcast (2/23/2010 - hour 2 - 20 minutes in) 2005 study from Harris Interactive commissioned by Redbook: Nearly 25% of married or engaged adults believe that openness about money is more important than sexual...

    I need some advice on how to help my neighbor... He's 49-yrs-old, and works with "concrete" (cast stone?) I'm not sure exactly what his work entails other than that it is physical labor. He says that he cannot wear gloves because then he cannot hold the equipment (?) or the concrete (?)...

    Well, as some of you may recall, my DH is trying to join the police department here in our city. A little over a month ago, he took the written exam and did well. They called him back to do the physical fitness portion and he's at the police academy today doing just that. He's worked very hard...

    http://www.knowledgeofhealth.com/blog/kohblog.html Renewal of some life insurance policies demand periodic physical exams and almost mandate every insured person be placed on useless and problematic statin drugs, since these exams usually follow the cholesterol guidelines actually established...

    I'm curious as to how many of us consider our mental health or the state thereof, relevant to our physical health....? My mamma always said 'happiness is a choice' and I truly believe that. I also have learned in my own lifetime that what I concentrate on the most, whether it be the things I...

    It's spring break week this week and I took most of the week off so my kids could stay home and we could spend some time together. The begininng of the week was trying to get things done I had been putting off. We did some things together like playing cards and watching a movies. Today though, I...

    Interesting. I think a combination of both is important, but it's a good article, nonetheless. http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0CYD/is_17_39/ai_n6212390
  9. Health challenges

    and it didn't go quite as well as I had hoped. I have to go for some tests as it looks like I may have a problem with my thyroid. I also have to go for a mammogram, a back x-ray and a ton of blood work. The only good news was that my cholesterol levels and my blood pressure were fine and I have...

    All things considered I am in a damn good mood - I am surrounded in crap right now at this point in my life (its been just kind of a lousy two weeks with everyone and horse, dog that I have dealt with yet I am in a surprisingly good mood. I know exactly why and I am not overly proud of it - but...

    I am not sure that I can comprehend this - I expected it from parents , not just my own but from all parents when I was younger. I knew a group of boys who finally, in self defense, shot their father. My Brothers and I teamed up to set horrendous traps for my dad when he came home drunk. We...
