Happy Ending


Most Wednesdays and Saturdays, we play cards…tonight I was the “All Time Card Winner.”

I promised my friends I would blog this…A good time was had by all…too bad we were not playing for money!

Tonights games were CRAZY 8’s and 500 Rummy.

The snacks were burritos, jelly beans left over from Easter Baskets and Kettle Pop Corn.

Drinks were green tea, black cherry diet drink, mixed with some lemon/lime soda and Merlot Wine.

We will probably all have bad dreams and stomache aches tonight.

This is the Card Champ signing off…

Most Wednesday and Saturdays are card night and a movie, here at the house. I promised my friends that I would post tonights results…still reigning Card Champion of the World as we know it on 40th drive….ME!

Snacks for the championship game were jelly beans left over from Easter, burittos, and kettle popcorn.

The beverages included green tea, Merlot Wine and lemon/lime soda mixed with diet black cherry soda.

A good time was had by all even the LOSERS!

BUT, it would not surprise me if we all got stomach aches and bad dreams tonight.

The movie tonight was “The Cat in The HAT” with Mike “the insane” Myers.

Hello Baby Boomers…

2359738490_eca8bd652e_m.jpg

I don’t know about the rest of you, but especially since I have Lupus, I have more aches and pains then Carter has LIVER PILLS!

I am afraid to sleep near humans, as I snore (the dog doesn’t seem to mind, thank goodness!).

And I was tossing and turning so much at night that I woke up tired every morning.

I was afraid to answer personal ads as all said…”no baggage” and the bags under my eyes were definitely weekenders!

I knew that waking up with lower back pain was a sleeping issue

MY problem was that I had a FLAT BED.

I didn’t know this until I started talking a friend about my hideous sleep/bed problems. She sells Contour Beds. So, guess what I now own…you got it, a CONTOUR BED.

It has been two weeks already and even though it takes about a month to get used to any new bed…I LOVE MINE…I hate to get out of it as it relieves pressure on my whole body.

I am sleeping better, snoring less, I am hardly tossing and turning, there is less pressure on my kidneys heart and lungs from sleeping on my side, better circulation, that weekender baggage under my eyes has already turned into an over night valise, just to name a few.

Even my dog likes it…the vibrator and wave motion scared her at first but now when she hears it turn on…she comes over to join in the relaxation!

I hear it has over a 1000 positions…but, I haven’t tried them all out yet…

I thought that you would like to hear about my NONFLAT bed experience and read some neat information about it.

Baby Boomers…you have got to have one of these beds.

You know how to contact me if you need more information…

By the By…I do have Queen sized bed!

Sleeping and lying down is the only time in which complete relaxation were experienced by the body. We all know that pain and aching are lessened in the muscles, ligaments and the spine. Moreover, anyone suffering from a back injury or chronic pain needs to have good quality, comfortable sleep in order to help in the healing process and to ease discomfort.

Adjustable beds are not the extravagance they once used to be. This are not only for the aged and infirm either. Adjustable beds are for you and me. I know, because I have one. It was the best investment I ever made. If you seriously want a good nights sleep or to ease pain and discomfort a Contour bed is the ticket!

My adjustable bed is my special retreat where I spend time reflecting, sharing time with my loved one, reading a good book, and even watching the occasional DVD and TV. I put a stop to the frustrating battle with an unmanageable stack of pillows {I used to sleep with 7 pillows} that would linger longer, and put an end to my sore neck and lower back pain. My adjustable bed was so successful, that I began to notice reduced tension, strain, soreness. I really achieved a quality nights sleep; something, which had eluded me for years.

1286540115_842bd5868f_m.jpg I can’t think of ANYTHING you can’t do in a Contour bed.

Best of all, my adjustable bed was an affordable luxury, and I am convinced that it is a piece of furniture that everyone deserves to own. Especailly if you are like me and have heath issues that need to be addressed!

How does an adjustable bed work, you ask???

Adjustable beds, sometimes referred to as the semi~fowler or fetal position bed, can be altered to many varied positions. Sleeping slightly inclined gives comfort to many people with back problems. With the upper body slightly elevated and additional support to the knees at a slight angle, this position eases some stress off the lower back. It provides support to the spinal curves and lightens the pressure over the entire body.

At the touch of a button, an adjustable bed can be transformed into many relaxing and comfortable positions, which will support your head, neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, hips, thighs, legs, and feet. Your muscles shall relax and local blood circulation in your legs is unimpaired and may be increased by simply elevating your legs with the tap of a finger on your hand control.

Your body’s weight is comfortably distributed so you are able to breathe easily. The relaxing contoured positions you are able to assume allow you to remain on your back all night long.

To relax and sleep in the most comfortable position of all, the semi~fowler or fetal position, just touch a button and adjust yourself to contour into shape. Many people told researchers that they slept in recliner lounges in this position before they got their adjustable bed because it was actually more comfortable than their ordinary ‘FLAT BED’.

Your adjustable bed will provide comfortable sleeping in a slightly inclined position compared to lying flat on your regular flat mattress. There are many back conditions, which can be eased up to give more relief to people in the following situations.

    I concider Contour Beds to be recreational beds as well…

    Spinal Stenosis

Most people with this back problem find more comfort by bending forward rather than standing upright. Unfortunately, flat mattresses provide the least comfort compared to sleeping inclined on an adjustable bed.

    Degenerative spondylolisthesis

An adjustable bed will reduce the pain and discomfort in the lower back and provide comfortable and restful sleep during the night.

    Osteoarthritis

This back impediment is accompanied by pain, stiffness and aching. An adjustable bed offers better support by lessening density and compression in the joints.

    Back surgery

Patients agreed that they felt more comfort using an adjustable bed in contrast to a flat mattress following lower back surgery.

WHY do you think all HOSPITALS have adjustable beds, in every room?

THIS BED IS GROOVY!

This is my testimonial and review on Contour Beds. No one stuck bamboo sticks under my nails OR threatened me with tofu [I hate tofu].

IN OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma, Zach Dunlap says he feels “pretty good,” four months after he was declared brain dead and doctors were about to remove his organs for transplant.

41223381_1865275735_m.jpg

Dunlap was pronounced dead November 19 at United Regional Healthcare System in Wichita Falls, Texas, after he was injured in an all terrain vehicle accident. His family approved having his organs harvested.

As family members were paying their last respects, he moved his foot and hand. He reacted to a pocketknife scraped across his foot and to pressure applied under a fingernail. After 48 days in the hospital, he was allowed to return home, where he continues to work on his recovery.

On Monday, he and his family were in New York, appearing on NBC’s “Today.”

“I feel pretty good. but it’s just hard … just ain’t got the patience,” Dunlap told NBC.

Dunlap, 21, of Frederick, Oklahoma, said he has no recollection of the crash.

269343650_95c4401120_m.jpg

“I remember a little bit that was about an hour before the accident happened. But then about six hours before that, I remember,” he said.

Dunlap said one thing he does remember is hearing the doctors pronounce him dead.

“I’m glad I couldn’t get up and do what I wanted to do,” he said.

Asked if he would have wanted to get up and shake them and say he’s alive, Dunlap responded: “Probably would have been a broken window that went out.”

His father, Doug, said he saw the results of the brain scan.

“There was no activity at all, no blood flow at all.”

Zach’s mother, Pam, said that when she discovered he was still alive, “That was the most miraculous feeling.”

“We had gone, like I said, from the lowest possible emotion that a parent could feel to the top of the mountains again,” she said.

She said her son is doing “amazingly well,” but still has problems with his memory as his brain heals from the traumatic injury.

“It may take a year or more … before he completely recovers,” she said. “But that’s OK. It doesn’t matter how long it takes. We’re just all so thankful and blessed that we have him here.”

Dunlap now has the pocket knife that was scraped across his foot, causing the first reaction.

“Just makes me thankful, makes me thankful that they didn’t give up,” he said. “Only the good die young, so I didn’t go.”

You really didn’t think that I’d let this “history in the making” election year go by without comment did you?
For the first time in history we have a race between a black man and a white woman for the highest position held in America. What a shame that we are constantly being reminded of that fact…

How many of you think that it could also be a Black/White or a White/Black ticket running…I personally have heard lots of whispers that if Ms. Clinton gets the ticket…she will have Mr. Obama as her running mate…

Do I smell change in the air??? I sure hope so.

What say you, Baby Boomers???

Cows

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington. And they tracked her calves to their stalls.

But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country.

Maybe we should give them all a cow.

Things have changed since 911 but it was not with our neighbors and relatives from the south. I am so glad that they decided to drop the pretense of a wall between Mexico and the U.S.. Just more money down the tubes that could have gone to better use! Perhaps NORTH AMERICA should be just that…no boundries…John Lennon said it best…IMAGINE
