Use Your Gillette Razor 60 Times More Than You Usually Do

Honestly, it can be done. And there’s no damn good reason that we shouldn’t be able to use our Gillette razors to shave our faces or body parts, many more times then the length of time the blue or white strip wears out. We’re told by Gillette that in their advertising and have been told for years, that once that blue strips wears out, we need to start using another razor. It’s interesting how a Gillette razor won’t last as long as a toothbrush even though their made of steel. Through some strange reasoning the human mind supposes that when that rubbery gooey strip has run it’s course so have the metal blades. Oh how pompous of you to believe such a tale. Do you really have that much money to burn? You know the […]

A friend of mine was inquiring not too long ago about EFT working as described by David Rourke. I explained to her that I’ve heard about EFT and that doing a little research into Rourke’s techniques might be in order. What is EFT? EFT is an acronym for Emotional Freedom Techniques. Apparently applying these techniques on a regular basis will “raise the physical and psychological bodies to more healthier and balanced vibrations”. In a nutshell, they’re supposed to relieve and heal you of any stress and trauma you endured while growing up or even during your adult life. In order to receive EFT assistance, one must find an EFT Master of whom must obtain an array of qualifications and take an EFT Master exam. The full list of qualifications can be found here (source).

Be careful when buying these products, because of the recent United States herbal incense ban, which outlawed many products containing hazardous chemicals and ingredients. When you consider that the main focus of the science called “aromatherapy” was originally the practice of applying oils to cure disease […]

Today’s expectant mother is presented with an empowering – and often dizzying – amount of choices and information regarding pregnancy and childbirth. Every step along the way a mother-to-be makes her own choices, from the type of prenatal care to the birth environment. One of the first and most important choices a new mother will make is the care provider: whether that’s a traditional OB, a certified Nurse Midwife operating from an OB’s office, or an independent Certified Midwife. In evaluating her care provider choices, a woman will take into account her medical preferences, general medical and obstetrical history, her childbirth philosophies, and often her medical insurance coverage. And as midwifery gains popularity and legitimacy in the American medical community, more and more women are choosing a natural birth with a Certified Midwife. […]

I think it’s rather grotesque and highly surprised that people in general haven’t caught on to this. We’ve managed to catch on to the fact that its unsafe and unhygienic to openly store your toothbrush in your bathroom, but for some reason we’re still coughing and sneezing into our hands, bacteria laden hankies, or the more lately our sleeves. No ones uses the hankie anymore; people have finally become self-conscious of sneezing into their hands, especially in public but so many people believe it’s OK to sneeze into their sleeve. I have seen posters, recently in establishments showing people how to properly sneeze and yes, the little man is sneezing into his sleeve! Damn that! Cough or sneeze into your shirt. A cough or sneeze generally only gives us a few seconds, if […]
