Why SHOULD You Vote for Angel in the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest?

Posted by apwood on January 30, 2009

Because it is for a great cause!

Hi! My pet has something to ask you: Will you vote for her in the Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest – and help save other pets’ lives at the same time?

See my pet’s picture and message below. Helping animals is really important to me, and your donation will not only help my pet in the contest, but will save pets’ lives by reducing pet overpopulation. Thanks!

Angel Marie Butler

Hi!

I’m Angel Marie Butler. The person who takes care of me, Amy, has entered me in The Humane Society of the United States’ and Humane Society International’s Spay Day Online Pet Photo Contest.

Now I need your vote to help me win some cool prizes — and to help me raise critical funds for spaying and neutering to control pet overpopulation. Go here to vote for me by making a small donation to my sponsored charity!

To celebrate the 15th annual Spay Day on February 24, 2009, The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International are telling everyone how spaying and neutering improves pets’ lives. In addition to making pets better, more affectionate companions, spaying and neutering helps animals live longer and healthier.

To enter the photo contest, my caregiver submitted this picture and wrote a few nice words about me. The rest is up to you: This is one contest in which you can “buy” votes — and that’s exactly what I’m asking you to do. In this contest, every US $1 you donate in my name both supports spay/neuter and awards me one vote in the contest! If I finish in the top 500, I’ll win some sweet prizes.

I’d appreciate your vote and donation today, but if you’d like to enter your own pet in the contest, then please do—I can handle some friendly competition! And if you want to stay on top of how I am doing in the contest, visit the Search Pets page and search for me by name.

You can now also find me on Facebook! You can share my entry with your family and friends — on Facebook.

Enter your pet in the contest and donate to vote today. You may enter the contest until 5 p.m., Eastern Time, on February 27, 2009; voting ends at midnight, Eastern Time, on March 6, 2009.

Sincerely,
Angel Marie Butler

Please support our sponsors:

Sick? Sinus Infection? Pain? Why Acupuncture May Work Better than Drugs.

Posted by apwood on December 9, 2008

CB032919

It does for me!

My first experience with Acupuncture was about a year and a half ago.  I’d been under a lot of stress and I wasn’t taking great care of myself so I came down with a sinus infection.  After trying a few natural therapies like a Nettie pot, sleep, etc – I went to my MD.  I’d had a low grade fever for a week and nothing seemed to be working.

He gave me an antibiotic that I was to take for a week.  Which i did and still nothing.  I still had the low grade fever and the sinus pain.  I went back because I was feeling even worse.  He prescribed me a stronger antibiotic this time for 10 days.

It just didn’t seem right so I decided to give Acupuncture a try instead.  I went to Chester County Herbs & Acupuncture and saw Margaret Sheehan. (West Chester, PA)  She was friendly and knowledgeable, explaining what she was doing and how it all worked.

A few tiny painless needles in my sinuses and an hour later I was on my way home.  I was able to breathe, the pain was about gone, and I was really relaxed!  The next morning I took my temperature and my fever was gone!  Wow, I was surprised too!

I felt better in 24 hours – naturally!  I’ll take that any day over 2 weeks of antibiotics that kill all the bacteria even the good bacteria in my body!  (If you’ve already been on antibiotics and need to replace the ‘good’ bacteria look into a quality probiotic to do this!)

Are you unfamiliar and wondering what Acupuncture is?

Acupuncture
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into specific points on the body to improve energy, relieve stress, alleviate pain and improve function.

Oriental Medicine refers to the energy force running throughout the body as Qi (roughly pronounced Chee). Qi travels throughout the body along “Meridians” or special pathways. Energy constantly flows up and down these pathways. A person’s health is influenced by the flow of Qi in the body. If the flow of Qi is insufficient, unbalanced or interrupted, illness may occur. Acupuncture is used to restore balance to the Qi and to promote healing.

Acupuncture points are specific locations where the Meridians come to the surface of the skin, and are easily accessible by “needling,” Acupuncture needles are disposible. They are used once and disgarded in accordance with medical biohazard regulations and guidlines. Moxibustion and Acupressure are completely non-invasive treatments based on Meridian theory that are often used as complementary treatments to Acupuncture.

My treatments have alleviated sinus issues, pain (IE- knee, elbow, back etc), and much more!

Wouldn’t you rather feel better naturally without the side effects of antibiotics if they weren’t completely necessary?

Wouldn’t you rather boost your immune system naturally with Acupuncture?

Since then I always use Acupuncture as my first choice for treatment!  Check out Chester County Herbs & Acupuncture if you are in Pennsylvania or the surrounding area.  It is worth it!  You are worth it!

To Your Health,

Amy

Why Did My Recycling Get Bigger & My Trash got Smaller?

Posted by apwood on October 13, 2008

Because I found out how to do it! Sounds silly but I did not get the “Recycle Instructions” when I moved into my current home.  The only thing I knew was that you threw the metal cans and glass bottles in the green recycle bin.  I also saw some people putting out boxes (that were broken down) so when I ordered something that came in a box, I did the same.

When my daughter’s school did a recycling drive (where you could bring in catalogs and magazines to recycle) I got to thinking that there had to be so much more I could be doing.

Then I saw on TV that one Pizza chain in NY City recycles their pizza boxes.

I began to try and find more about recycling online. I didn’t have much look searching so I called my local borough.  The lady was very kind and offered to send me out the instructions.  Which she did.

I’ve now cut my trash in 1/2 and doubled my recycling!

How? Well, All of the paper I was throwing in my trash can (i.e. – junk mail, shredded bills, magazines, paper etc) all goes in a brown paper bag next to my recycling bin.

I also took the box thing a step further by breaking down every box (i.e. – cereal, cracker, popcorn) and I mean every box!  Then I tie them up and place them next to my recycling bin.

It is amazing how much of a difference it makes!  It may take a few extra seconds to break the box down, and a few extra minutes on the day of pick up to tie up the boxes, but knowing that I’m doing my part to help preserve our beautiful Earth makes it so worth it to me.

I was also happy to see that my local grocery store now has boxes for you to recycle plastic bags and batteries!

If you live in Chester County Pennslyvania, here is a link to the Solid Waste Authority. You can drop off computers, cell phones, and motor oil and such.

It has become something I think about now and I look forward to when everything is recycled.

Why should we keep dumping plastic bags full of things that we don’t recycle to sit in holes in the Earth?

There is more on the NO side of the recycling instructions then the YES.  Why can’t we recycle napkins, milk cartons, juice boxes, pet food bags, photographs, plastic envelopes, light bulbs and so on?

I hope it becomes a priority and one day sooner than later all we get is really big recycling bins and no more trash cans!

Why Help Protect Our Children from Pedophiles before September 26, 2008?

Posted by apwood on September 16, 2008

Because your voice matters and it could save a child from being abused.

For those of you who don’t watch Oprah, her show yesterday was mind blowing.  I’m still nauseous and shocked.  I, as you probably do too, know that there are pedophiles preying on children.  I didn’t know how wide spread it was – probably because it isn’t talked about much.

Oprah prefaced the show by saying “What you are going to see is going to shock you to the core, but I’m asking you to please don’t turn away,” Oprah says, “because this is happening in our country to our children in the United States every day.”

Look at this picture of Oprah standing in front of a map where each red dot signifies a pedophile who is online viewing and committing crimes:

The map behind Oprah shows how quickly one pornographic image of a child being molested can spread. It starts with the large red dot from a computer in Washington, D.C. Within 24 hours, it has spread all across the United States—from coast to coast and north to south. “This is just an average day in America—24 hours,” Oprah says.

Now if this wasn’t bothersome enough to see how wide spread just the internet pedophiles are (keeping in mind that there are still plenty of people out there who don’t embrace technology) then the viewers heard “We’re seeing sexual abuse including oral penetration, vaginal, anal penetration,” says Michelle, another analyst. “We see children with dog collars on their necks. Kids with plastic bags over their heads. Foreign object insertion with these children.”

And they are filming this and sharing it with there network of sickos via the internet.

We also heard that these assaults are happening to younger and younger children because they can’t tell.

I couldn’t believe my ears but Yes – they are doing this to babies!

Still seared in my head from the show – they said that on videos you heard a baby giggle and gurgling and then it turns to a screaming cry because they are being hurt – I couldn’t hold back the tears.

I am appalled that in this day and age of technology that these filthy predators are able to commit these heinous crimes with technology but we are not stopping them?  Why?

I learned that –

The Internet can sometimes seem like the Wild West for child predators—a place that largely operates outside the law. While trading in pedophile pornography is illegal, lack of adequate funding means law enforcement officials are able to investigate just 2 percent of their leads. And, according to Interpol statistics, only one-half of 1 percent are ever prosecuted.

It is so angering that the US spends money on so many useless things and lack of money is why these scum can still hurt innocent children.

So what can we do to help these children and change this?

Help Pass Senate Bill 1738—The PROTECT Our Children Act
Oprah

Hundreds of thousands of children are victims of sexual abuse each year. Due to the sheer lack of resources, law enforcement is unable to follow up on the majority of leads they have.

The PROTECT Our Children Act will:

  • Authorize over $320 million over the next five years in desperately needed funding for law enforcement to investigate child exploitation.
  • Mandate that child rescue be a top priority for law enforcement receiving federal funding.
  • Allocate funds for high-tech computer software that can track down Internet predators.

Act Now!
Your U.S. senators will be voting on the bill soon, so it is crucial you contact them immediately.
Go to www.senate.gov to find contact information for the senators in your state. Search for your senator by name or state by clicking on the arrow from either dropdown menu. Contact information is provided here. To send an e-mail, click on “Web Form” below his or her name, and e-mail your letter to make a difference!

Call Your Senators
If you choose to contact your senators by phone, be sure to tell them, “Vote yes on Senate Bill 1738—The PROTECT Our Children Act.”

Write to Your Senators
If you choose to write a letter, fax, telegram or e-mail, you may use the following sample letter—and modify it how you see fit.

Dear Senator:

I know that you believe, like I do, that we must do everything possible to protect children from sexual predators. That is why I am asking for your help.

Last year alone, U.S. law enforcement identified over 300,000 criminals who were trafficking in movies and pictures of young children being raped and tortured. Experts say that one in every three of these criminals has local child victims. Child pornography trafficking over the Internet has given us a trail of evidence that leads straight to their doorsteps, but the vast majority of these children will never be rescued because investigators are overwhelmed, outnumbered and underfunded.

As your constituent, I urge you to do everything in your power to pass the PROTECT Our Children Act (S. 1738, Biden-Hatch). This bipartisan legislation passed the House 415-2, but it is now the victim of petty partisan politics.

Now that we know where these children are and how to protect them, there is no excuse for the Senate to fail to take action this session.

(Your name here)

Instructions for How to Copy and Paste the Letter
To copy and paste the letter into your senator’s web form at www.senate.gov, point your mouse arrow at the beginning of the text that you want to copy. Click your left mouse button and hold it down. While holding the left mouse button, drag your arrow to the end of the text that you want to copy. Release the button. The text should be highlighted. Place your mouse arrow over the highlighted text, click your right mouse button once and let go. A new menu should appear. Select Copy from the drop down menu. When you get to the message form field for your senator at www.senate.gov, point your arrow at the beginning of the message field that you want to copy your text to and right click with your mouse. Click Paste from this menu. Submit your form and help our children!

I already sent my letter to Senator Casey & Specter.  It only took 5 minutes.

Please do this little part for children!  It will only take you a few minutes – that are priceless in helping protect the future of our children.

Then send it on to everyone you know!

Why Drive in The Right, Pass in the Left Lane?

Posted by apwood on September 12, 2008

For one – it would make so many people happy.  At least me.

Why do I care?  Almost daily I see someone going right at or below the speed limit in the left lane.  It starts to back traffic up and you have to take off cruise control.  (No, I’m not a road rager (is that a word?) who drives 90 mph, just your normal 7-miles-or-so-over-the-speed-limit-girl)

Also, my other half is an offender of left-lane-driving-slower-than-the-cars-in-the-right-lane.  He is one of the many who do this. I try to bite my tongue when someone is on his ass and I just know they’re irritated.  If he doesn’t notice after a minute or so i just can’t help it.

I don’t understand why nor do i understand why I don’t and why it bugs me?  I just feel like it is the right thing to do as a driver.

But anyway, curiosity pushed me to look up what the ‘law’ on such annoying behavior is.  It must have come from somewhere.  Didn’t I learn that in Driver’s Ed in high school?  Stay to the right unless passing?  It has been a while so I did some searching.

First I found a site called “STATE KEEP RIGHT LAWS” – it actually breaks down the laws each state.  Yeah, LAWS as in plural.  It is ridiculous some say YES you have to keep right, others say NO, others say sometimes depending.  Take a look at the chart – beware, it can be confusing – you have to keep looking up to remember which color means which answer and then the side notes.  (or maybe it is just early for me).

So, the verdict on Pennsylvania (since that is where i live and drive most often) – “USUALLY”.  Huh?  Not Yes (although marked green for yes = driver can only use left lane to pass)  Usually was given b/c it is a YES with 2 reasons for not following this:

May also use left lane to allow traffic to merge or “when traveling at a speed greater than the traffic flow”.

I get it they are being very specific – which some may need and not leaving it to common sense.  Very smart PA lawmakers that be.

But  there are only seven states that say Yes to drive in the right lane unless passing.

The abundance of them say ‘Slower’ on the chart which means –

Most states follow the Uniform Vehicle Code and require drivers to keep right if they are going slower than the normal speed of traffic (regardless of the speed limit). These are listed as “slower”, with an asterisk and an explanation under “comments” if vehicles lawfully using the left lane must yield to overtaking traffic. A few states either do not require vehicles to keep right (“no”), or permit vehicles moving at the speed limit to drive in the left lane regardless of traffic conditions .

Which I interpret as if you are holding up traffic because you are going slower than the people in the right lane or behind you move over.

Only a few states don’t say you have to get over.

So I wasn’t crazy – Stay in the right lane unless you are passing or going faster than the right lane.

I even found a site called DRIVE RIGHT PASS LEFT – where they also hold the belief that this system has a place and will help with congestion on the highways.  I didn’t scour it as closely as the first as I’m out of time.  Woke up a little early this morning and had a minute.

Am I the only one who wishes this was a law that more abide by?

Although – this was kind of just a fun thing to look up for curiosity sake on what the laws were.

Have a good one!

Why Should YOU use Cloth Bags Instead of Plastic?

Posted by apwood on July 14, 2008

You might think – “I want to help with keeping our world clean, but how do I help?

How can I start going GREEN?

A very easy way is to buy those $0.99 cloth bags at the check-out in your local grocery store.

Just a hint – keep them in the trunk of your car – when I leave them in the house, I usually forget them when I go to the store!

Click on Plastic Bags below and learn just how much impact you can have!

Why Is Drugging Children Legal?

Posted by apwood on June 19, 2008

This video is eye opening!

In the last few years, I’ve become aware of the over medication in general in this country with antibiotics and vaccines. Having worked with children with Autism and other childhood disorders, I also saw first hand the large amount of medications used to control’ their behaviors.

But this was new to me that abused and neglected children are NOT given the help that they need, but some drugs to numb them.

Weird. If they went out and used illegal drugs to numb themselves they would be arrested and incarcerated, BUT if the pharmaceutical companies do this to them – it is in their best interests.

Big pharma seems to have no end. Money and Greed are ruining our children’s future.

I found this video on my Dr. Mercola newsletter today – and had to share. I found the ‘previous pharmaceutical rep’ speaking at the end of the video to be so enlightening. She clearly states that the pharmaceutical companies motivation is money.

There are so many people working FOR children to help them, so how do we stop money and greed from destroying these efforts?

Why Is the Media allowed to Choose OUR Presidential Candidates?

Posted by apwood on May 15, 2008

Before there was just McCain, Hillary, & Obama to choose from – I was rooting for Ron Paul.

Why? Because he made sense. I watched many of his videos on you tube and he was no bull shit. Simply, he wanted to take the ‘Big’ out of government.

I especially liked him for his views on wanting to reign in the power of the FDA, lobbyists, and the governments power over suppressing alternative health, as well as, his views on fixing our economic situation and the ‘war.’

Why? That’s another post (and evident if you’ve checked out my other blog www.greenlifesaver.net), but for now I found this video most informative. Now I know Why? Ron Paul disappeared.

The big question is WHY? does the media get to choose this and WHO? is running the show behind the scenes?

Check this video out –
