Online Education

May 21st, 2010 · No Comments

I think online education is a wonderful option to get a college degree especially for those who work and have busy lives.  I completed my bachelor’s degree while working 3rd shift and without taking away any time with my family.  An online university provides a great opportunity for those who otherwise might not be able to attend a traditional brick and mortar college.

As we all know job competence and credibility are crucial for advancement and in getting a job. Western Governor’s University has online MBA degree programs to help those seeking upward mobility in their careers. The WGU MBA will equip you with superior business and management skills and prepare you for greater success.

Weekend Break

May 21st, 2010 · No Comments

I have been so stressed lately with dealing with my mom’s Alzheimer’s, going through a divorce, and having my hours cut in half at work that it is not even funny.  My mom is spending the weekend at an Alzheimer’s care unit to give me a bit of a break for the weekend.

Aside from my life virtually crumbling before me, I have managed to keep most of my sanity thankfully.  Being an only child has made trying to care for my mom alone very difficult.

It is such a very sad disease.  My mom is physically in great shape, but her mind is gone.  It is killing me to watch her decline.  I would have to say the most difficult and stressful part of it has to be her inability to speak coherently.  She becomes very frustrated because she knows what she wants to say but just cannot find the right words.  She gets agitated and angry with me and anyone else she tries to talk to.

With a car of this calibur, it only stands to reason that you want only official Ferrari parts.

The Dreaded Diagnosis

May 20th, 2010 · No Comments

Although I am a healthcare worker, seeing my mom go through the stages of Alzheimer’s has been horrible for all involved.  It is such a stressful thing for my mom and my kids and me. 

My mom now fights constantly with my 10-year old because they are on about the same level.  She blames everything on my daughter even when she is not home.  My kids now hate even being at home because she will not let anyone have a moment’s peace. 

Trying to learn how medicare works and the supplemental insurance works has been horrible.  My mom’s income is just over the mark for medicaid but yet she does not have enough to get the assisted living or memory care.  The costs are astounding!

Rapid Detox

May 20th, 2010 · No Comments

The often painful symptoms of drug withdrawal may last for several days and can stand as a barrier to the treatment of a drug abuse problem. Some practitioners use “rapid” detoxification methods to condense the withdrawal process into a considerably shorter period of time, about two hours, while the addict is asleep.

Rapid detox patients placed under anesthesia while given treatment drugs, such as naltrexone, can avoid the extreme pain associated with such treatments, say proponents, and bypass the major effects of withdrawal.

This treatment is only for the motivated persons who want to quit the narcotic addiction.  At the Las Vegas Rapid Detox safety is of the utmost importance.  With 20 years experience, our VIP detox utilizes expert MD anesthesiologist care with the combination of knowledge and skills for pain management, critical care and cardiac surgery for safety and comfort.

Energy Star Light Fixures

December 4th, 2009 · No Comments

By replacing the five most frequently used light fixtures in your home with ENERGY STAR qualified models, you can save $70 each year in energy costs. Light fixtures that have earned the ENERGY STAR combine quality and attractive design with the highest levels of energy efficiency available today.

When you use less energy at home, you lessen greenhouse gas emissions in our atmosphere. If every home in America completely replaced the five light fixtures they use most with ENERGY STAR qualified models, we would collectively prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of nearly 10 million cars.

Facebook

December 4th, 2009 · No Comments

I have been on Facebook for a couple of years now and love how easy it is to connect and reconnect with friends.  I really enjoy the ease of keeping in touch with friends and family. 

I have been able to reconnect with friends from elementary school, junior high,and high school.  It has been so much fun being able to talk to everyone on a daily basis.  It is much more efficient than emailing individuals too.

Glass Tile

December 4th, 2009 · No Comments

In recent years, glass tiles have become a popular field and accent tiles. This trend can be attributed to recent technological breakthroughs, as well as the tiles’ inherent properties, in particular their potential to impart intense color and reflect light, and their imperviousness to water.

Glass in tile introduces complexities to the installer, as glass is more rigid than ceramic or porcelain tile, so glass tiles break more readily under the duress of substrate shifts.
