Dark Circles......

I have them most of the time, and it's become a permanent  feature in my face.  I can't seem to get rid of them, and have often thought of using a dark circle cream  to try and help the problem.  I don't know which one will be the best or even help.  I will need to get more information about more than one product and see if there is any benefit to buying such products.  My eyes often give away my age as well as make people think I have been beaten or abused.

What.......!


Maybe Arizona 's new law isn't so wrong.  I don't think so.  I think all
states should enact a law just like ours!  Illegal is illegal!  It is
against the law!

Just One Hospital , Unbelievable!

Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas , Texas is a fairly famous institution
and for a variety of reasons:

      1. John F. Kennedy died there in 1963

      2. Lee Harvey Oswald  died there shortly after

      3. Jack Ruby-who killed Oswald, died there a few years later.

On the flip side, Parkland is also home to the second busiest maternity ward
in the country with almost 16,000 new babies arriving each year.  (That's
almost 44 per day---every day)

A recent patient survey indicated that 70 percent of the women who gave
birth at Parkland in the first three months of 2006 were illegal immigrants.
That's 11,200 anchor babies born every year just in Dallas

According to the article, the hospital spent $70.7 million delivering 15,938
babies in 2004 but managed to end up with almost $8 million dollars in
surplus funding.  Medicaid kicked in $34.5 million, Dallas County taxpayers
kicked in $31.3 million and the feds tossed in another $9.5 million.

The average patient in Parkland in maternity wards is 25 years old, married
and giving birth to her second child.  She is also an illegal immigrant.  By
law, pregnant women cannot be denied medical care based on their immigration
status or ability to pay.

OK, fine.  That doesn't mean they should receive better care than everyday,
middle-class American citizens.  But at Parkland Hospital , they do.
Parkland Memorial Hospital has nine prenatal clinics.  NINE.

The Dallas Morning News article followed a Hispanic woman who was a patient
at one of the clinics and pregnant with her third child---her previous two
were also born at Parkland .  Her first two deliveries were free and the
Mexican native was grateful because it would have cost $200 to have them in
Mexico .  This time, the hospital wants her to pay $10 per visit and $100 for
the delivery but she was unsure if she could come up with the money.  Not
that it matters, the hospital won't turn her away.  (I wonder why they even
bother asking at this point.)

How long has this been going on?  What are the long-term effects?  Well,
another subject of the article was born at Parkland in 1986 shortly after
her mother entered the US illegally - now she is having her own child there
as well.  (That's right; she's technically a US citizen.)

These women receive free prenatal care including medication, nutrition,
birthing classes and child care classes.  They also get freebies such as car
seats, bottles, diapers and formula.  Most of these things are available to
American citizens as well but only for low-income applicants and even then,
the red tape involved is almost insurmountable.

Because these women are illegal immigrants, they do not have to provide any
sort of legitimate identification - no proof of income.  An American citizen
would have to provide a social security number which would reveal their
annual income - an illegal immigrant need only claim to be poor and the
hospital must take them at their word.

Parkland Hospital offers indigent care to Dallas County residents who earn
less than $40,000 per year.  (They also have to prove that they did not
refuse health coverage at their current job. Yeah, the 'free' care is not so
easy for Americans.)

There are about 140 patients who received roughly $4 million dollars for
un-reimbursed medical care.  As it turns out, they did not qualify for free
treatment because they resided outside of Dallas County so the hospital is
going to sue them! Illegal's get it all free!  But U. S. citizens who live
outside of Dallas County get sued! How stupid is this?

As if that isn't annoying enough, the illegal immigrant patients are
actually complaining about hospital staff not speaking Spanish.  In this AP
story, the author speaks with a woman who is upset that she had to translate
comments from the hospital staff into Spanish for her husband.  The doctor
was trying to explain the situation to the family and the mother was forced
to translate for her husband who only spoke Spanish.  This was apparently a
great injustice to her.  In an attempt to create a Spanish-speaking staff,
Parkland Hospital is now providing incentives in the form of extra pay for
applicants who speak Spanish.  Additionally, medical students at the
University of Texas Southwestern
for which Parkland Hospital is the training
facility will now have a Spanish language requirement added to their already
jammed-packed curriculum.  No other school in the country boasts such a
ridiculous multi-semester (multicultural) requirement.

Sorry for the length, but this needs wide circulation particularly to our
"employees" in Congress.  Remember that this is about only ONE hospital in
Dallas , Texas .  There are many more hospitals across our country that must
also deal with this.


Joints

I''m getting older and lately have been noticing several joint pains  that are slowing me down.  I had hope that I wouldn't be one of the many people who experience this part of the aging process.  It looks as if I will have to admit that I'm just as human as everyone else.  There are several supplements that can be take to help with stiff joints.  I will look for more information on them before I buy a particular one.

My Darling Husband.......

Before you return from your business trip, I just want to let you know   about the small accident I had with the pickup truck when I turned into the driveway.      
Fortunately it's not too bad and I really didn't get hurt, so please don't worry too much about me.

I was coming home from Wal-Mart, and when I turned into the driveway I accidentally pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brake.

The garage door is slightly bent but fortunately the pickup came to a halt when it bumped into your car.

I am really sorry, but I know with your kind-hearted personality you will
forgive me.  You know how much I love you and care for you my sweetheart.

I am enclosing a picture of the damage for you.

I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again.

Your loving wife.

Outbreaks.......

There's nothing worse that having a huge zit show up on one of the most important days of your life.  Naturally, it has to perch itself right in the middle of your nose.  There are several different topical creams that can be used for these outbreaks.  Finding a good acne medicine  is hard to do if you have it really bad.  You need the help of your personal doctor or skin specialist to determine which is right for your skin.

Bottle Bombs

Don't pick up any plastic bottles that may be laying in your yards, etc.!!!


Pay attention to this.
1. a plastic bottle with a cap

2. a little Drano

3. a little water

4. a small piece of foil


5. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!!


6. No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

People are finding these bombs in mailboxes and in their yards, just waiting
for you to pick it up intending to put it in the trash.
It takes about 30 seconds to blow after you move the thing.

Term Life

Those of you familiar with term life insurance, will be interested in the value you can get from a cheap term life insurance policy.  It's a good thing to invest in one's future and be ready when the time come to have the necessary funds for your needs.  Getting several quotes on term life policies can help you decide or the one that's right for you and your family.  Click on the above link, look around and get more information about the benefits involved.

Ha, Ha

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.

She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk.

He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching. For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well. 

Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, 'You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great You should go into town and kick up your heels.' 

The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night.

One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return. Two o'clock and no hired hand. Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.

She quietly called him over to her.

'Unbutton my blouse and take it off,' she said.  Trembling, he did as she directed.

'Now take off my boots.' He did as she asked, ever so slowly.

'Now take off my stockings.' He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.

'Now take off my skirt.' He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light. 


'Now take off my bra.' Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped it to the floor.

Then she looked at him and said, 'If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired.'

Good Lighting

I've often wondered how much effort it took to get those huge chandelier's hung up it the rotunda's of capitol buildings.  I'm sure it must take a huge crane and plenty of stout cables to put it in place and hold it there while they attach the supports to the chandelier to anchor it into place.  Your home is not different, when it comes to putting a personal lighting fixture in the proper places, with the right supports.  It's nice when you can finally view the finished product and turn on the beautiful lights to enjoy.

Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Oklahoma rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Barack Obama and his bid to be our President.
The old rancher said,'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.'
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.'
The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.
'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just want to help the dumb ass get down.'

Tell Them........

The new baby is almost here or already here and you want to tell all your friends and relatives.  It's a thing that you do when a new child arrives in the world.  The new parents want to show off their new pride & joy.  Finding the right birth announcements  is necessary to give a flare to the new center of attention.  I found so many different places that offer all types of cards to announce the great moments in your life.  To get more information about announcements, click on the above link and look around.

Why Not?

I HAVE TO PASS A URINE TEST FOR MY JOB... SO I AGREE 100%. Like a lot of
folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and
the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to get that
paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no
problem. What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to
people who don't have to pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a
urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for
them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on
their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone
sitting on their butt, doing drugs, while I work. Can you imagine how much
money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a
public assistance check? Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if
you don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though. Something has to change
in this country -- and soon!

Vitamins

Have you ever seen a woman is is skinny and the only place she's big is her stomach?  I wonder what happen to the other women, who blew up like balloons the way I did?  You automatically think this skinny woman needs some prenatal vitamins.  Well, I can point her to a website at  www.prenatalvitamins.net  that she can visit and get more information.  I was prescribed those things when I was pregnant and I guess they did the job.  All my babies were healthy, and so was I.

The Pill

That's what it's been called down through the years........I saw recently where the makers of the "pill" are saying that it's having an anniversary of 40 or 50 years that it's been around.  The birth control it's taken care of wasn't in the right places.  As you can see the population has still exploded with numerous amounts of births.  Guess they'd better hurry up and make one for the men!

It's There........

 There it is right in the middle of your belly, back on your buttocks and you know where else!  The fat that you try to hide by wearing loose clothes, is still there.  You need a fat burner  to help rid your body of those unwanted pounds. Some people use it to become lean and build body muscle when trying to body build.  I'd just like to get rid of it, but then I'd have to figure out how to get rid of the loose flabby skin.  If you can afford to get that loose skin taken care of, then check out the above link and find more information about fat burners.

Never Argue With A Woman.........

One morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and
decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife
decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short
distance, anchors, and reads her book.

Along comes a Game Warden in his boat. He
pulls up alongside the woman
and says, 'Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'
'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')
'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her
'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing.  I'm reading'
'Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at
any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up.'
'For reading a book,' she replies,
'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he
informs her again,
'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading'
'Yes, but you have all the equipment. For all I know
you could start at any moment. ; I'll have to take you in and write you up.'
'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the woman.
'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.
'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could
start at any moment.'


 'Have a nice day Ma'am,' and he left.

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also
think. Send this to women who are thinkers.  If you receive this,
you know you're intelligent.
Send this also to men, so that they will be "afraid" to argue with women.

Slim Down.......

 I've been trying to watch my eating and cut back on foods that I know can cause me to gain weight!  Now, you know how effective that has been, don't you?  I've headed straight for them, and ate like a pig.  I need some sort of help to get this thing going.  They say that apidexin can do this, and I surly would try them, if they didn't cost more than I want to spend.  If you are really interested in getting your weight loss on the move, then click on the above link and look at the information they give.

Weather

Well, it got cool again, and naturally it was on a holiday.  Now here we are in May and it's cool outside?  I really can't figure out this Texas weather, and I've lived here all my life.  It never does, what's expected for the actual months involved.  The El Nino, effect is what they are calling the culprit this year........hell, I don't know what that has to do with it, but somehow they think it causes disturbances in the atomsphere, that causes different weather patterns to happen.......WTF!

Cheap Insurance

i don't know if you've seen the ads on the news about people who are retired, getting cheaper car insurance?  Well, it's around since the government, passed that bill.  I got my insurance lowered because of it.  If you need to find cheap auto insurance  then I suggest you clicking on the above link and visiting the website listed. The website will show you ways you can get a better deal on auto insurance, and have the benefits you need for all the users in your family.

Mother's Day.........

It's fairly dull for me, even tho I'm the mother of 5 children.  They are so involved with their own lives, that I don't get noticed, except when they need something.  I do have one daughter, that notices me, and checks on me often..........of course she's the youngest and that's ok.  At least she called me this morning and wished me "Happy Mother's Day", when none of the others, did.  I have to admit, that one is unable to call......but that's another story.  Another is too busy finding money for her beer and cig's so, I'll be surprised if she even thinks about it.......as you can tell, a few of my kids, didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped........like I said, she will find me, when she needs something.

Gold Bullion

If you deal in silver bars or rare coins then you should have a good supply on hand should this type of recession happen. Silver today, is in short supply and very hard to find. Gold and Platinum have been a good sources of metal to stockpile during times of recession. You can  buy gold bullion  and have them delivered to your bank or institution according to your specifications. I checked out a site that has been in business for quite awhile now. They deal in precious metals and have a good supply of rare coins on hand. It’s got a scrolling marquee, with the precious metals and coins with their price’s listed.  It is a service that deals with some of the finest rare coins in the world. For more information go to this website and look around.
