Don’t you love the holidays?

bring-it-featuredAlthough a little early in the year for Christmas, Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat by Jen may keep you laughing until the holidays. No doubt, we have all felt this at one time or another, and although I don't mean to sound like a Grinch, sometimes you just can't wait for it to end soon enough.

It drives us to do crazy things! Like slipping off a ladder putting up the outside lights, or driving on slippery roads you wouldn't normally be out on, just to spend an evening being someplace you don't want to be.

More than often it can involve sharing a meal or more. And if numerous relatives have contributed, there isn't anything like eating an apple pie full of cat hair, that a crazy aunt made. Seriously, how could you not think about these things. Every time you visited in the past year, you often see the cats on the cupboards. Heck, I've met people who leave the food and water dishes for their cats on the cupboards and actually encourage their cats to jump up to eat.

Or it could be a young nephew or niece, with an awful cold, and his nose running so bad that you feel your body starting to float.

And the conversations! It would be a blessing if the talk could be centered around the weather, but no, people need to pry, and there is safety in numbers. Or it could be the elderly relative, who can't remember where her teeth are asking your teenage daughter if she managed to get over that awful rash she had last summer.

We are all going to remember holidays like this, and of course years later you look back on them and laugh. But if you get a copy of this book now while it's being offered for free on Amazon for a limited promotion, perhaps it will prepare you for the upcoming season. And if you take a miniature video recorder, you can use the money from Blackmail as a second source of income.

Over Fifty at Risk for Shingles

shingles-featuredDid you have Chicken Pox when you were young? Many of us did. It's been said that you only catch it once. Perhaps I was just lucky. I had it three times; although people will tell you that's impossible. From this it would seem I am a prime candidate for Shingles.

The shingles vaccine is recommended for anyone 50 years of age and older to keep the varicella-zoster virus from re-activating and causing shingles. You see, although it appears one recovers from chicken pox, it can lay dormant in your body for decades and launches itself as Shingles in your senior years. Shingles, typically affects people whose immune systems have been weakened by HIV infection, cancers, or treatment with immunosuppressive drugs.

Shingles causes a painful, blistering rash that usually appears on just one side of the body, most often on the torso or face. The picture to the left, is an example of how it appears were you first contract it. Although it's possible, the pain and numbness (associated with it) may occur in the location of the rash two to four days before the rash.

shingles-ebookRyan Notch has written a guide, Shingles -- A Quick Guide to Symptoms, Treatment and Pain Relief. He says, "Doctors now estimate that 50% of us who live to the age of 85 will catch it at some point. What was once only a disease for the elderly is now attacking all portions of the population. Especially those whose immune systems are compromised by stress or age. This book is the simplest and most comprehensive guide to recognizing the signs of shingles, and ways to deal with both the short term and long term pain. Presented in terms direct enough for the common reader, but smart enough to get you the information you need to beat this disease for good."

The book is being offered for free for the next 24-48 hours as an Amazon promotion. So click here and get it now so you can have it in your Library. There is a good chance you will need this information later.

How to Grow Medical Marijuana

Marijuana-featuredThere isn't a person over fifty who doesn't know someone who has been affected by cancer. In another article on this site, Study Confirms Hemp Oil Cures Cancer, there is a link in the comments section to a pdf file  is over 800 pages long, filled with links to medical studies that show the proactive use of cannabis in various forms for medicinal purposes. Still there are many people who are unaware of the medical potential of cannabis and how cannabis can supplement our body’s own healing endocannabinoids.

In most countries growing Marijuana is illegal. There have been some changes in the United States recently where two states have legalized it, but over-all it is still illegal. In Canada they are making changes to the laws too. Although it is possible to get a doctor's certificate to use it, the laws are changing so that those who need to use it, have to buy it from a government regulated source and can no longer grow their own.

grow-med-ebookEvan Reed has published a book, Growing Medical Marijuana: A Patient's Guide To Growing Your Own Meds For Less Than $100. The book is only 51 pages long and doesn't contain a lot of filler. This book is a "how to" guide -- not full of theory and complex discussions about science. It is very much a beginners guide to cannabis cultivation. It shows you step-by-step how to do exactly that: Grow your own quality meds for $100 or less. Complete with system setup instructions, perpetual grow cycle directions, materials shopping lists, and diagrams and photos of setup and equipment, you have everything you need for growing medical marijuana on a budget.

Evan doesn't mince words. In the first section of the book he says about the legality of it, "If you choose to use the information contained herein for the cultivation of cannabis, you do so completely at your own risk, and acknowledge that the author and publisher had nothing to do with your decision to grow."

The Kindle version of his book is being offered for free for the next 24-48 hours as an Amazon promotion. If you miss this post and don't get this book now, you can still get it later, from the same link but the price is $2.99.

Note: I don't use Marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. But I advocate its legalization, so people who need it, can grow and use it to treat various medical conditions.
