Caring for our teeth

Of all the things that I consider important, dental care if right up there with the top few things. Eating right would be number one though eating right is a part of dental care. The right foods = healthy teeth etc. etc.

Brushing several times a day, flossing, and getting regular checkups, all are just plain good sense if you want your teeth to last throughout your lifetime.

If you don't have a dentist now, it's time to find one. You can search online for a dentist in your area. As an example, search for Frisco Dentist on Google and up will come a list of dentists in your area.

I'm an advocate of research and feel so blessed to have access to so much info at our fingertips. So, find a dentist in your area and look after those beautiful teeth.

My grandaughters newest activity

My grandaughters are always coming up with something new, a new activity, a new challenge. Their latest thing is horse back riding. They are taking lessons and are fast becoming skilled equestrians.

Of course, one doesn't ride in just a pair of jeans, but must have riding breeches, and carry a crop. Next they will be entering competitions and that will mean an outfit of "horse show" clothes.

Our world is full of interesting activities and I am glad that my granddaughters are open to trying new things. A full life is an interesting life.

What are your thoughts?

What do you think about weight loss pills? Do you use them and if so, which ones have you tried?

I feel that herbal products are the best way to go in this area of supplements. I'm a huge fan of label reading always. Before I take any over the counter remedy I need to know just what it is that I'm taking. Be it a medication or processed food, I read the labels.

The older I get the more rigid I get about reading labels and being mindful of taking care of my body. Our health is our greatest asset. Guard it with your life, for your life.

Planning a vacation?

Last year gas prices were so high as were airfares and just about everything else. This year, however, due to everyone cutting back, prices have been reduced considerably.

I don't know anyone who hasn't cut back on spending, but with these vacation prices being lower, it's enabling us all to reconsider going somewhere instead of staying home. Westgate is just one of the many resort chains that have lowered prices. They are offering a great Las Vegas package for $149. Having resorts in many of the most popular places, we can go just about anywhere in the states and stay at one of their resorts and take advantage of their great deals.

Saving money! Always a buzzworthy subject.

Mesothelioma, still a lot to be learned

If you have a friend of family member who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma you know how far they've come in learning about it, but also know how far they have to go before they fully understand this terrible disease.

Mesothelioma is relatively new, but a lot of research is being done and some great discoveries being made as well. A dear cousin of mine has been diagnosed with it so whenever I find a new website I bookmark it and send it to him. When I came across I read with interest about some of the inroads that are being made. I was also pleased to read that there are a lot of support groups available for sufferers of this disease. Support groups are a great tool not only for the sufferer, but also family members. I'm reminded of a Beatles song, "I'll Get By With A Little Help From My Friends". How true!!

The new face of business

I have several family members who are in the insurance business. In fact, my brother and sister-in-law are, their daughter and her husband are insurance people as is my nephew. Their business has been very successful over the years. Times are changing even for their business, however. People aren't content to stay with just one insurance company but want to shop for the best price and are using the internet to do so.

As things change for individuals who are shopping for insurance, so are they changing for those who sell it. Business is stressed and they all have to consider new ways of finding health insurance leads. There are now companies online who have valid leads for insurance companies, people who are shopping for the best prices around.

The more things change, though, the more they stay the same.
