Steps to Keeping Your Hands Smooth and Youthful

handsI hate my hands.  In fact, my hands look like they belong to two different women, my left to a woman 10 years older than the right one.  Okay, so I don’t always follow the advice from my research.  My left hand, from the untinted car windows and skipped sunscreen, is wrinkled, dull with ugly, dark veins.

Checking out the Wen Hair Care Product Line

woman shampooing hairAt first it was the price that kept me from ordering the Wen System but the commercials convinced me that I really, really needed it.  My hair is shiny, somewhat manageable, but I wanted spectacular.  After all, I owe it to my readers (snicker here).  I did not, however, want to put myself in debt forever.  But, one fine day, after seeing the commercial for the zillionth time, I decided to take the plunge.  I can always discontinue the subscription, right?  Right.

I’m Back, Again……

we're adoptedOne of the worst things you can do when you have a blog and I love my blog, is to drop it for any length of time. Which, if you’ve been checking, is actually what I have done recently?

I didn’t stop writing and researching because I didn’t want to write but my life was turned upside down in so many ways. I’m hoping I, and my two elderly pups, keep it together from now on.

I had to move and just before the move my computer died, and I can’t live without my computer. Does anyone use a phone book any longer? Does anyone know where there is a phone book? Try and find a phone number or an address, or anything, when you’re computer is dead. It is so frustrating. Then there’s keeping in touch with the mover, packing, and in the middle of that, my Autumn started to have breathing difficulties. We’re still trying to get to the bottom of that. She is 20+ so I am panicking. She and her sister mean the world to me and we’ve been joined at the hip for over 11 years. Both are rescues and were in horrible condition with I met them so I guess any time left is a tremendous gift.But I’m back and I’ve got tons of new material and a couple of things that really work taking off inches on your stomach and thighs and really bringing back a y0uthful, smooth complexion. Hope you stick around for them.

Can’t do this without you. Keeping reading and sending in your comments. They are so important.

Foods that Speed Up the Aging Process

It only tastes good for a short time

It only tastes good for a short time

When I saw this list of foods to delete from your grocery list 1) I wasn’t surprised and 2) I wanted to cry because, except for the carbonated sodas, they are some of my favorites.  Who doesn’t love fried chicken, Brats cooked in beer, McDonald’s French Fries?  It’s like a comedian said once, ‘If it tastes good, spit it out.’  It always seemed to me the things that gave me most pleasure were the worst for me and now I have proof.
