Drug Rehabilitation

Everybody has been affected by alcohal and drug addiction in their life at some point. If it has not affected you, then it has a friend or family member. For some people addiction will ruin their lives or even kill them. Without help, it can be almost impossible to break the cycle and stop your addiction. Thankfully there are places for people to get help.
Personally, I have seen many of my friends battle against alcohal addiction. They have tried to stop cold turkey and just can't do it on their own. They needed a place to get proper alcoholism treatment. Successful alcoholism addiction treatment involves analyzing different aspects of the addiction and achieving success in individual areas. Only by successfully treating all aspects of alcohol addiction will successful alcohol addiction recovery be achieved. This is where a great rehab center like the Stone Hawk Rehabilitation Center can be a great option. Located in Michigan, the facility gives the patient all the support and education they need to break their addiction. It is this support and feedback that can determine the chances of a successful recovery.

Memoirs of a Straw

I was eating dinner at one of my favorite local restuarants. I had a wonderful fried walleye sandwich and some tasty waffle fries to eat in front of me. To drink, I had some ice cold Cherry Pepsi Soda (Yes, it's soda - see link). In my mind, there is no better way to drink a soda then with a straw. Which most of the time is no big deal. But once in a while I seem to loose all hand eye coordination with the process of drinking from a straw. This was one of those times.
So I went to grab my half full glass (gotta think positive) of soda. As I was bringing the glass towards my mouth the straw went straight into my nose. OOOPS! (Now I realize I have a big nose, but this just shouldn't happen.) My cat-like reflexes snatched the straw out of my nose. My first thought was.... Did anybody see? I paused to look around to see if anybody was laughing. I think I made it. I was in the clear. Now, should I drink from the straw even though it was in my nose? If I didn't drink from the straw again it would appear strange. So, to save face I stuck the snot infested straw in my mouth and took up a slurp of soda.

Has this ever happened to you?

Piece of Mind

As many of you know, without insurance you can sometimes get yourself in trouble. You can end up paying thousand of dollars in medical and other bills that you would'nt have to with insurance. I just got my bill from getting a cleaning at the Dentist. It cost $130! Since I had Dental Insurance I didn't have to worry about coming up with a chunk of change like that.
Also if you have ever been on vacation, travel insurance is a must. Especially when traveling out of the country. You just don't know what will happen when you travel. Unfortunately, there are events that come up in life that make it impossible to keep reservations. Illness or accidental injuries are a couple of reasons why a trip may have to be delayed. Imagine a broken leg in advance of your next ski trip. With travel insurance, the traveler will not be out any money and is free to reschedule their trip at a later time.
I found a great website where you can get quotes for all different types of insurance. I suggest that you take a look at it, especially if you don't have insurance!

Protect Your PC

If you are anything like you me you want to protect the investment you have put into your PC. I mean they aren't cheap and if you get a virus on your computer you could lose photographs, work info, songs and much more. I found a great website where you can download free Antivirus software in just a matter of moments. You get Norton Antivirus from Google for free! Norton is one of the leading brands in protecting your computer. Just look and see what many others are saying. Another great feature of the download is you have the option to download 12 other helpful software programs that can make life on the computer much easier. One of the 12 additional options are a spyware program that can protect you from others watching what you are doing and from those annoying popup that we all love. So I guess I can't see why you wouldn't want to take advantage of this offer? If you go to your local electronic superstore you will pay a lot of money for the same software you can download for free here.

Great Recipe for Shepard's Pie

I am a huge fan of Shepard's Pie. It must be the Irish in me. I am also trying to lose some excess marriage weight. So I found this great recipe on the Food Network for Turkey Shepard's Pie. It is low in fat and still tastes awesome. This isn't the quickest meal to make, but it is worth the effort. Makes a lot for left overs or invite your frieds over. The first time I made this recipe my wife and I had dinner and then lunches for two days in a row. That makes life a lot easier. Also might I recommend having a nice Irish beer with this meal. A nice Guiness is the perfect companion for this meal. For dessert..... Maybe some Baily's to keep with the Irish theme. Click here for Rachel Ray's great recipe!

Terry Tate Office Linebacker - Sensitivity Training

Another Terry Tate Video to Watch. This is just marketing genious! In this episode Terry has offended some people in the office with his brash tactics. So they have to bring in a special sensitivity trainer. It is ironic that she ends up showing lots of cleavage and then sexually harrasses on of the workers in the office. I find this funny because I think that this whole harrassment thing has gone too far. You can just look at somebody at work and get in trouble. There is no clear line on what is right and wrong.

Making Money Blogging

I recently starting blogging for a website that pays you to blog. I figured I had to try it out. I like to blog, I like to get paid, so it made a perfect match in my mind. I am always skeptical of online make money schemes but this is a legit opportunity to make some cash. I have been doing it for only 4 days now and have made $31.00. Making that money only took me a few minutes doing something that I already like to do, write blogs. The better your blog, the better opportunities to make money you have. The advertisers who use Payperpost give opportunities based on your google page rank, alexa score or what blog service you use. So far most of the opportunities that I am elgible for have been around $6.00 per post. That is way more than you can make selling ads on your blog or other revenue making methods for your blog. So if you noticed lately that I have been writing about some other business opportunities this is why.
I hope to continue making more blog entries and making more money using the Payperpost service. My plan is to take the extra money I make and put it into my Sharebuilder account and buy up more stock each month. I figure it is better to invest it in something rather than waste it away all at once. By the way I am really high on buying up Sirius Satellite Radio stock right now, hoping that the merger with XM Radio will go through so that my stock goes up. But that is neither here no there. So I would encourage all my fellow bloggers to check out Payperpost. On the main home page they list the all time earners and there is one lady who has made over $8,000 dollars. Just from blogging! So there is a possibility with enough hard work and good blogging you could join her in making some money off the internet!

The Office Wait is Almost Over

Will Roy beat up Jim? What will happen next on the Office. We will find out April 5th when a new episode comes out. The video gives us a recap of Season 3 so far and gives a clip from the new show! Enjoy.

Music Notes

I am a big music fan. I am a fan all of types of music, from dance to classical to hip-hop. I am also a big fan of Industrial Artists. I was searching the internet the otherday and stumbled across a cool website that lists independent artists from around the world. I sometimes prefer the smaller independent artists than those who sell out their sound to make money and go mainstream. While surfing thru the site I found a cool group called DigitalTraffic. The music is a mixture of electronica and industrial. It is very energetic music that makes the work day go by fast! On the site, DigitalTraffic talks about the advantages of modern technology to develop your own music and produce it at a very low cost. This way you don't have to join a record label. You should check out this great new music from Great Britain. Click on the link below to check out the website for greatIndustrial Artists.

Cyclones Top Ticket Mark

AMES, Iowa – For the second year in a row, Iowa State has sold more season football tickets than it has ever sold in the history of the program. The current total of 31,168 surpasses last year’s record of 30,728 and comes over five months prior to the Cyclones first football game on August 30th.

“We are excited to have already established a new football season ticket record more than five months prior to our season opener. Last year we did not reach 30,000 season football tickets until late in August,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “We are committed to selling as many football season tickets as possible and our staff looks forward to continuing to sell season tickets during the next five months. Increasing our number of football season ticket holders will help us build a stronger financial foundation for our future.”

Most impressive to Pollard, are the 3,500 new season ticket orders (either brand new sales or additional season tickets ordered by existing accounts). “Much like a coach adding new recruits to the roster,” Pollard said, “we are always trying to identify new Cyclone fans. It appears many new season ticket holders want to get in on the ground floor of the Gene Chizik era and we welcome them with open arms.”

Mortgage Refinancing

Getting a good interest rate on your mortgage can save you lots of money in the long run. It is amazing how a few points can make such a difference over a 15 year or 30 year loan, but it does! I recently bought my first house and I really shopped around to get that great interest rate. Rates now are still at record lows. You can refinance your mortgage now and save yourself thousdands of dollars. I found a great website that has good deals and lots of information to help you make an informed decision. I would recommend checking it out while interests are still so low. What better way to save money or have extra money to fix up your house. They specialize in California Mortgages, so if you are looking to same some money and live on the west coast this is definately worth checking out.

The Wet Touch

I had just washed my hands after using the restroom at my office. I somewhat dried my hands and began my exit out the door. Just then I heard someone from behind me call out my name. I turned around and saw an old acquintance who I hadn't seen for a number of years. He went to shake my hand and I froze. My hands were still a little wet from the bathroom. I can't shake his hand with a wet hand. That is just awkward. He might think that I just urinated on my hand. I know how gross it is when I have to shake somebody's hand that is wet. It's just gross! I didn't have time to think of any excuses for being rude, so I just hugged him. This was completely weird, for both of us. I don't think he knew what to do. I ended the embrace..... Complete silence. Then he just walked away. Wow! That went well. He may think that I am a little weird, but at least he didn't think I had urine on my hand!

Pain in the Neck

I don't know about you, but for me sometimes work can be a pain in the neck. I am talking literally! I sit at the computer for the better part of an 8 hour work day and this can wear down a person's body. People just laugh at me when I say that I am tired from my work because I sit all day. But sitting at a computer can lead to headaches, back pain and neck aches. I am always trying to find ways to help get rid of my pain and have a healthy life. I came across a great website that deals with Spine and Sport Medicine. So if you are looking for Physical Therapy near New York, their office is located in Manhattan, New York and after looking at their website, I am impressed!

Drinking Wine in Bed?

I get a kick out of the mattress commercials I see on television. The mattress company tries to impress us by showing how you can set a glass of red wine on one side of the bed and then lay down on the other side without the wine spilling. Now, I am not a raging alcoholic, so I might not know for sure. But, how many people are drinking wine in bed and then need to set the glass down on their bed. Have they ever heard of a night stand?
Then you have the commercial with the bowling ball being dropped on the mattress. This makes sense. Just the other day I was bowling in bed and it kept my wife up all night.
I know these commercials are just trying to prove a point with the wine and bowling ball, but why not show us something that shows the mattress working for a practical use? You could show a fat man (or woman), jumping into bed after their spouse is already asleep. With a normal mattress, the fat man sends his spouse flying out of bed. With the new improved mattress, the spouse doesn't lose one second of sleep!

Some Great Coupons

Some of my good friends call me "frugal" or "cheap". I take this as a compliment because it means I am wise with my money. I found a cool website that you can get coupons for your favorite stores. Among the stores on the site is my all time favorite store, Target. This is a great place to get Target coupons. I can spend hours in Target shopping for books, dvds, clothes, music and more. We even do our grocery shopping there too. It really has something for the whole family. So anyways, at (the online leader in coupons, deals, and discounts) you can get Target coupons for $5, $10, or free shipping. That brings a smile to my face. They also have coupons for Best Buy for all your electronic needs. If you haven't bought an HD plasama television yet, this would be the pefect time to do so. Once you have the HD experience you aren't going to want to watch anything else.

Tossing the Cookies

Well, I puked this past weekend for the first time in 3 years. I forgot how much I loved to puke! I can't think of anything that tastes as bad as puke. There is just something unpleasant about the combination of warm bile and mucas that isn't that apealing.

But, you know one time when I was little, I remember puke actually tasting good. I know, that sounds crazy. But, when I was little and had the flu, my parents would have me eat jello. On one particular occasion I was eating lime green jello (one of my favorites). I remember eating an entire bowl of the tasty green jello just a couple of hours after I had first puked. By this time I was feeling somewhat better and I ate the jello like it was going out of style...... Three minutes later I went running to the bathroom trash container to heave up the green liquid. I bent over the trash can and the green jello came spewing out. After my final heave, I could taste the limey green goodness of the jello on my lips. I remember thinking to myself, "Wow, that doesn't taste bad."

Moral of the Story: For a pleasant puking experience, try Lime Green Jello (that should be a commercial).

St. Patrick's Day

Did you know...

That green is associated with St. Patrick's Day because it's the color of spring?

That the shamrock is a traditional symbol because Saint Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to represent how the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit could exist as separate elements in the same entity?

That the first St. Patrick's Day in America was celebrated in Boston in 1737?

That the following things on St. Patrick's Day will bring you good luck? Finding a four-leaf clover, wearing green, kissing the Blarney Stone, and buying a copy of The Brogan Book: Your Daily Blarney, by Thomas Brogan.

Music and Lyrics

I went and saw the movie "Music and Lyrics" yesterday. It won't go down as an Oscar worthy film and it isn't in my top 20 movies of all time, but somehow I did enjoy it. I think my connection to 80's music as a youth made it all worth while. This is a good date movie and you won't have to worry having to think too hard. Check out the music video from the movie. Hugh Grant's hip thrusting is sure to make you chuckle.

Health Insurance

Last week I received a medical guide from my health care insurance provider. The guide shows different medical conditions and symptoms that effect the human body. Now, why would my health insurance provider send this to me? Is this so I can diagnose my own conditions and not visit the doctor? Or was it to make me so paranoid about having certain conditions that I would go to the doctor? I would assume that my health insurance provider wants me to be in great physical and mental health and generally care about my well being. But after reading a few chapters in the medical guide, I think that they are just plain messing with my mind.

I feel that I am in pretty good health. Granted, I may not be able to walk upstairs in my house without running out of breath, but I get along. After reading the guide, I noticed that I had several of the symptoms for many of the medical conditions in the book. The more I read, the more I began to panic. Could I have Jondus, Avian Flu or Athlete's foot?..... My ear hurts.... What does this mean? My left pinky finger has a bump on it! What should I do?

So I visited the doctor after I calmed down. I found out that I really wasn't going through menopause or that I really didn't have Athlete's Foot. But, I did find out something that others have been saying for years.... I am crazy, thanks in part to my health insurance provider.

Jim Gaffigan and the Hot Pockets

This past weekend I went and saw comedian Jim Gaffigan perform. What an excellent peformance! My mouth hurt from laughing too much. I would highly recommend going to see him or pick up one of his comedy CDs. Here is a little bit of his act as he talks about Hot Pockets. Prepare to laugh your butt off!
