Look at this world we live in right now. Just look at it!
First, every piece of information we need regarding just about anything is available in about 3 seconds. Experiences, opinions, facts…all of it!
Next, we can share our own of the same at the speed of light, across the globe.
A product can not only be purchased and delivered to your dour in a single day (Amazon Prime) but you can be the one selling it!
Not happy with your life? Dedicate yourself for about 10,000 hours (a mere 5 years full time) in any new direction you choose and you could be a complete pro (says Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers).
Will it be easy? Probably not. You might have to trade TV or bar time or even some family time for rolling up your sleeves and digging into some new subject.
It might even cause some discomfort.
But that’s no excuse.
Now is the time to get what you really want in life.
Here is a very effective way to sweeten your mouth and protect your teeth and gums. And it costs almost nothing!
I’ve been doing this steadily for only a week and it’s quite effective.
Keep in mind that tooth paste has little or no actual disinfectant in it. All the brands are that way. They are mostly abrasive.
This solution takes care of that deficiency and, as a result, leaves your mouth feeling and tasting much healthier.
“The Secret” was initially developed by Dr. Paul Keyes to enable a person to efficiently and inexpensively improve the condition of their own gums. This system reduces redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums and minimizes the need for surgery, improving all but the worst areas in the mouth.

In keeping with my last post, here’s more likely proof that people are sick and bloody tired of being PC (politically correct) all the time:
The most politically incorrect card game possibly ever created is wildly popular. I mean it’s just off the charts!
Is it any coincidence that the most politically incorrect US Presidential candidate of all time is also so popular?
I think not.
Couldn’t agree more with the idea that most of us are sick and tired of being politically correct all the time and thus Trump’s broad appeal.
It’s like we’re surround by a bunch of entitled, whiny 5-year olds who are offended by so much as a glance in their direction. …
As a little side project at work, I decided to get Elbert Hubbard’s Message to Garcia distributed to about 25 key management positions in our company.
If you don’t already know, Hubbard wrote this short essay on initiative in a single hour back in 1899 and it was so powerful as to be reprinted to the tune of 47 million copies! …
Ever had a fleeting thought you wanted to get jotted down but it left you before you could scramble together a pen and a napkin/post-it/your palm?
If you’ve got a fairly recent version of Android on your phone and you also have the Google Now app (whether you realized it or not–it comes standard), you are one touch away from capturing that thought (well, one if you have your headset on, two if not). …
Until recently it has been impossible to display a single-use coupon code from Amazon to shoppers without having to pay about $50/month for a web service or writing some code yourself.
That all changed recently when a kind, giving programmer threw together a simple WordPress plug-in which allows you to do just that. …
Since I spend a lot of time at my desk working on a computer, I end up getting some shoulder discomfort which, over time can lead to considerable pain.
From what I can tell, it’s a series of micro-traumas to certain shoulder muscles as a result of the wholly unnatural activities that come with computer work.
I tried a number of things to resolve this including various chiropractic and massage modalities over the years.
In the end, I found a couple of things lead to more improvements than others. So I’m noting them here on the ole blog.
Of course, these are just my anecdotal experiences and your results may vary.
The improvements came in the form of two main things: an exercise and a couple of nutritional points. …
Apparently it’s necessary in some cases to reset to factor settings after an upgrade to Lollipop.
After a much anticipated update finally arrived, I eagerly went through the motions to get it onto my phone.
After the phone restarted, I immediately noticed I was just about out of storage. Many of my apps needed to update themselves but could not due to insufficient space.
While I wasn’t keeping a super close eye on my storage, it seemed odd I would be almost out since I keep a pretty lean phone.
Deleting apps wasn’t solving the problem either.
So I backed up the phone with Helium and Samsung (for phone log data, etc.) and did the factor reset.
Much better! Phone is only half full now. It’s still restoring a few apps but I don’t see it eating up 6 GB with apps.
As much as I didn’t need the interruption this morning, it’s always nice to get a clean, efficient phone again–at least for the time being.
All is well now. If you have problems with your Lollipop update and storage, I’d highly recommend taking the time to do a reset.
