The Story Of My Friend Paulie

There is nothing more beautiful than true and uncompromising love. It’s a love so powerful, so compelling that nothing will stand in the way!

…And then there’s the story of my friend Paulie:

THE WEDDING TEST

I was a very happy man.
My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year. So we decided to get married.

There was only one little thing bothering me.
It was her beautiful younger sister, Sofia.

My prospective sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight mini-skirts, and generally was Bra-less.

She would regularly bend down when she was near me and I always got more than a nice view.

It had to be deliberate. She never did it around anyone else.

One day she called me and asked me to come over,
“to check my Sister’s wedding invitations” she said.

She was alone when I arrived.
She whispered to me that she had feelings and desires for me. She couldn’t overcome them anymore.

She told me that she wanted me just once before I got married, “Before you commit your life to my sister”.
Well, I was in total shock, and I couldn’t say a word
She said, “I’m going upstairs to my bedroom” she said. “if you want one last wild fling, just come up and take me”.

I was stunned and frozen in shock as I watched her go up the stairs.

I stood there for a moment. My mind was racing.
Then I turned and made a bee-line straight to the front door. I opened the door, and headed straight towards my car.

And lo and behold, my entire future family was standing outside, all clapping!

With tears in his eyes, my soon to be father-in-law hugged me.

He said, “Paulie, we are very happy that you have passed our little test. We couldn’t ask for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the family my son!”

And the moral of this story is:

Always keep your condoms in your car.

True Confessions, A Year of Truth

Mick Dolan:

Mental health and addictions are so hard to talk about but this brave lady is stepping up. The important thing is to talk about the problem, and get it out in the open. Drugs are not the ultimate answer on this—there is a better way.

It is February and I didn’t make a New Year’s Resolution, mainly because I know I don’t keep them. I’m feeling the need to be honest, to tell the truth.

I started this blog years ago telling stories mostly of my life and my people. My sense of humor was on display. If I’m truthful I’m avoiding telling you my secret.

It’s easy to say in private. You can just blurt it out. But in public, I keep thinking of the proper explanation or wrapper. I’m forgoing all of that before I put everyone to sleep.

I have depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness. I take medication for all of it. I don’t like saying I’m depressed, anxious, or obsessive compulsive. I’m not a cold when I’m sick so I don’t think I should have to be my chemical imbalance.

I play with my medication, sometimes on purpose, most of the…

The Ideals of Freedom, Justice, Equality and Compassion

“The ideals of freedom, justice, equality and compassion” I couldn’t have said it better than my congressman.

bill nelson_banner_ev11

Dear Friends,

This weekend we as a nation take a moment to remember the inspiring life and work of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and honor the ideals of freedom, justice, equality and compassion for which he fought so hard.

Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. As we look toward another 50th anniversary in 2015 – this time of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 – let’s remember how far we have come. And even though there is more work to be done, Dr. King’s legacy reminds us that we are a nation capable of great things when we work together.

So my hope for the new year is that we live each day in the spirit of Dr. King – compassionately, courageously and tolerantly.

Sincerely,

What To Do, And What To Never Do For A Hangover

As a public service, I’m passing along this great advice for those of us planning to overdo it a bit over the holidays!  For more great lifestyle tips go see what Jenny Thompson is up to at newmarkethealth.com. (Jenny Thompson HSIresearch@newmarkethealth.com)

Orlando Connections NYE 2014Burnt toast, Mexican sausage, a spoonful of olive oil?

Crazy as they sound, all these foods have one thing in common. People swear by them as a hangover remedy — or prevention!

But while there’s really no quick fix to make you feel fit as a fiddle tomorrow morning if you’re raising a toast to the New Year tonight, there are some things that can help clear the fog.

And something you should never, ever do.

The burnt toast “cure” comes from the idea that the carbon, which is in the charred part on the bread, filters out the impurities from the alcohol.

The sausage solution might be called the fat “trick.” Fatty foods, if taken before you have that pint or glass of spirits, are said to keep the alcohol from being absorbed by your body too quickly.

One folk remedy even has partygoers downing a spoonful of olive oil!

NYE FireworksBut here’s why the simplest method of all will give you the most relief.

A hangover isn’t just one thing. It’s a mix of reactions you get, depending on what you’re drinking and the unique way your body reacts to it.

But the one thing that’s certain is you’ll become dehydrated. And the more “toasts” you make, the more dehydrated you become.

And those classic hangover symptoms, the headache, thirst, and dry mouth, are all because of that. They’ve even done research to find out why alcohol is such a potent diuretic. And the answer seems to be that it suppresses a hormone that’s supposed to send water released by your kidneys back into your body.

But the answer to that one is simple. Before bed, or after that cocktail or other fizzy drink, have a glass of water. And another one in the morning.

And don’t skip breakfast tomorrow, either.

One of the best things to include in that breakfast is a banana. It will help replenish your supply of potassium — something else you lose when you become dehydrated.

And if you don’t feel very hungry, another breakfast idea is to have some toast with honey on it. (That “cure” comes from the Royal Society of Chemistry, so there must be something to it!)

Another hangover buster is a supplement called glutathione. Taking 100 mg of it about half an hour before drinking can help your body eliminate some of the toxic byproducts your liver has to deal with afterwards, especially if you combine it with vitamin C. You can also take another dose of glutathione before bedtime.

Whatever you try, there’s something you never want to do.

Ever.

New-Year-card-1912-dogs-w-hangover


And that’s to reach for anything containing acetaminophen or aspirin.

While that may seem like a quick fix, it can put your liver in the alarm-sounding, flashing red-light danger zone.

And that’s no way to start a new year.

Happy New Year

The Cat In The Christmas Tree.


Merry Christmas To All!!! 

blue christmasMost would say it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but did you know the holidays are also the most stressful time of the year?!  Friends, family and holiday cheer can sometimes be a volatile mix and that’s why we all need to chill.  Be yourself, don’t over think it and just sit back and let the holiday spirit come to you.  Don’t worry too much if things aren’t perfect.  The true meaning will always find it’s way.

merry-christmas-snoopy-9066336-800-600OK—–now let’s get serious and talk cats in Christmas trees.  I borrowed this very good advice for those of us who have pets from Jenny Thompson at HSIresearch@newmarkethealth.com:

Grumpy Cat christmasCali 10-2014

There are over 200,000 Youtube videos showing bad kitties wrecking the Christmas tree! But Youtube is the only place I’m sure you ever want to see that.

So it’s pretty obvious that the holidays can be confusing for our pets. And it’s certainly not their fault.

Lights, dangling things, something to climb — why it’s a wonderland of fun for a dog or cat!

And it can turn into a nightmare.

Cats may be the worst offenders when it comes to attacking the decorations we put up, but dogs can also get into plenty of trouble.

So here are some tips from the ASPCA to help keep your furry family safe this year.

  • Don’t have a tipsy tree: Make sure your tree is securely anchored and that, if it’s a real one, the water area is well protected from Fido or Fluffy taking a taste. The water can contain fertilizers used on the tree, as well as lots of bacteria.
  • If you’ve got a cat, trash the tinsel: Cats and tinsel just don’t mix. It’s everything a kitty loves to play with and possibly eat. And that can make for an emergency vet visit.
  • Hold the holly: Mistletoe, holly, and many varieties of lilies are very toxic to pets. So be sure to keep the holiday plants and decorations like mistletoe well out of reach.
  • Watch the wires: While the tree itself is very intriguing to many dogs and cats, it’s the lights that can be deadly. Especially for dogs who tend to bite on “interesting” things. Keep your lighting wires well “tucked” into your tree, so they don’t dangle in front of a curious pup.
  • Wrapping dangers: Another big hazard for our pets during the holidays are ribbons, strings and bows. Keep all wrappings away from your pets — especially after you’ve opened your gifts and they can be within easy reach. Ingesting strings and ribbons can easily cause an intestinal blockage.

But if you’ve got a new puppy or kitten in the house, even your best efforts may not work.

So setting them up in a spare room to be safe until all the excitement is over and the tree and decorations are taken down may be the best way to keep your new family member safe.

Not to mention keeping all your holiday décor all in one piece!
