Keep those Pearly Whites White. Being in business for myself, I have to find my own Dental Insurance, Health Insurance and Life Insurance. I rarely get sick and I avoid doctors like the plague. I have had ongoing problems with my teeth since I was very young. It started right after my adult teeth grew in. I fell off my bike and knocked out my brand new teeth.
That led to braces, retainers, bridgework, and the like. Luckily that's all behind me now, but it pays to take care of your teeth.

Sunscreen or Sunshield?

I think the term Sunshield is better, because the lotions will help shield you from the damaging effects of the sun.
Now that spring time is here with warmer weather and we're all getting back into the great outdoors, please remember to apply at least an SPF 15 to keep from getting sunburns and skin cancer.

Drugs are Bad for Your Skin. Have you seen the pictures of meth addicts? If you look at a set of pictures taken over time, it's very frightening. It doesn't take that long for the irreversible damage to appear, either. For addicts, you've GOT to quit and get into drug rehab so you can get better. If you've tried other places with no success, please try Stone Hawk in Michigan. They have two very picturesque locations in the state and their success rate is over 76% which is great! Much higher than the 12-step program grads and other alternative methods.

Cough-ee, Anyone? This year for our Anniversary, the gift my husband and I exchanged was a wonderful hacking cough. The kind where you cough and it feels like your brain will plop out through your forehead unless you hold it back. The kind where you cough so much your upper back aches. It's been such a joy, and I'm glad we were able to share in the magic together. Buy stock in Ricola now because I'm suckin' 'em down by the case. That and chopped garlic mixed in applesauce (to kill the taste) and bring me back to health.

Run for Your Health. I've always been health conscious and recently I have taken up running. I want to be able to get to the point where I can keep up easily with my husband when he goes jogging around the neighborhood. There's nothing worse than running a few yards and then gasping for breath. I'm sure my dogs would enjoy the exercise as well.
My sister is a great source of inspiration for me. She has competed in a few marathons and half marathons in Virginia and San Diego and she's in great shape. The Wirefly National Marathon is coming up soon in my area. It's their 2nd annual run and takes place on Saturday, March 24th. I won't be able to attend this year, however. There's already so much happening on that day! I already had to choose between a fundraiser, a training seminar, a Second Chance Prom or watching my hubby win another dirtbike race and I chose the fundraising event. It's not political, though. Gotta help out those Scouts! I won't be ready for the marathon this year anyway, I have a lot of training ahead of me yet.

This year's race is taking a new course which from what I understand will allow the runners to see more monuments and historical items rather than running through boring areas. As it stands now, the weather is predicted to be sunny with a high of 64. That's subject to change of course but it sounds like perfect running weather to me.

There's an Expo the day before the marathon at the DC Armory from 11:00am to 9:00pm where sports-related vendors will have displays set up. I may go and check that out and pick up some new gear.

Oh, and in case you're wondering what Wirefly is about, it's Wirefly Mobile and their website offers cellphones, service plan comparison, ringtones and accessories.

Lip Clinic Recap. I think the Lip Clinic presentation on Saturday morning went fairly well. We had a good turnout - about 70 women. We did the Lipstick Personality Profile which is a fun thing to do, it shows how the way you wear down your tube of lipstick by using it (slanted, pointed, rounded, flat) tells much about your personality. I gave some lip care tips and taught them how to apply lipstick using lip liner as a base so that it would last a long time and not wear off so easily. I also stressed the importance of sun protection for lips. Everyone got a free sample of a neutral lipstick shade. All in all, I hope it was a fun and informative speech.

Revlon Sugar Sugar Lip Topping. I saw a TV commercial for this product this morning and was intrigued by it.

I wonder if women who wear it will have people thinking they've just eaten a powdered sugar donut and neglected to wipe their lips off? To combat that, I suppose one of the other colors can be utilized. These Limited Edition Lip toppings come in Snowflake, Peri-Twinkle, Lemon Drop and Pixie Plum. Hurry! Sprinkled Pink is already sold out.
