I can hear my phone. You know a text or email is coming in by the sounds it's making. I don't know if ching is a word or not, but that's how it sounds. Just think, not so long ago, we didn't even have cell phones and now we seem to think we can't be without them. They are awfully handy and kind of a security item.

Actos lawsuit

I can see another possible lawsuit waiting to happen. This time it is a Actos lawsuit. What do I mean? Well, there was recently information found that connects Actos, which is a medicine that is taken orally for diabetes, to some very serious health issues. If you are wondering what other names it is sold under, it could be ActoplusMet, Competact or Duetact. The chemical name is Pioglitazone.

It is ironic that a drug made to help control a serious health issue would then be the cause for other illnesses that are just as bad. The list is very serious and includes such things as heart attacks, bladder cancer, and even heart failure. Hopefully diabetes patients begin seeing this information so they can weigh whether it is better to go with a different medicine or take the chance of one of these major side effects.

YIPPEE!!!! My daughter and her husband have been trying to sell their home for about two years now. In a weeks time, the right buyer came along and bought their home. They also bought a new home in a new community. God it good and sure works out all of the details in His perfect timing! Thank you Lord!

Ice Cream

I've never been much for ice cream. It's not that I dislike it, but usually can choose a different type of treat. The Schwan's man began stopping here. I ordered some of their ice cream. WOW! It is amazing. Not good! Now I'm eating to much of that. Yikes!

Multaq lawsuit

Another day, another medicine found to be dangerous for our bodies. With all the drugs available, it is no wonder we find more and more that have equally dangerous side effects as the illnesses they are trying to cure. On January 4, 2011 the Food & Drug Administration came out and informed healthcare professionals about another drug. This time it was Multaq. In their alert, they let the professionals know that Multaq has been associated with rare cases of liver damage. Definitely a Multaq lawsuit waiting to happen. The symptoms of liver damage include a list that includes slowed heartbeat, rapid weight gain, difficulty breathing, rashes, shortness of breath, weakness, stomach pain and redness.

New Home

My brother and his wife just moved into a brand new house. It is very nice and will suit them fine. The three stall garage would obviously be my husband's favorite feature. I told him that you don't live in a garage. They have most of the unpacking done and hopefully they can relax and enjoy the new house soon.

I always enjoy fashion. I spent last weekend shopping with my sister. We have such a great time. We saw a variety of fashions such as coogi and other brands. I love to see what will come out the next season. Summer time is colorful and fun. Winter is warm and exciting. Time will tell!

The Dallas Mavericks have had a great year. Our son Josh loves their team. He and his family lived in Arlington,Texas for four years and enjoyed following the Mavs team. He loved them even before he lived in Texas and he loves them even though he lives in Iowa again. Any chance he gets he likes to watch the Mavs. He has met some of the team, has autographs and some photos too. He is a real Mavs fan.

Table Rock Lake homes at

As I grow older it seems I've noticed more and more people thinking about retirement and what they might do and where they may live. Some choose to look into table rock lake homes at for that get-away. Some think about traveling south for a few months and then heading back up north for the summers. I'm not sure what we will do yet.

Cell Signal Boosters

It weird to think how not so many years ago we didn't even own a cell phone let alone each have our own. Reception has also come a long way with cell signal boosters and more towers rising. I can't imagine not having mine now. I suppose it's all what you get use too having.

Life insurance info for seniors.

Life brings changes. With it brings a variety of seasons. As we grow older we watch our parents do the same. We care about them and want them taken care of in the best possible way. In looking you can find life insurance info for seniors. It may be an option for some. I feel blessed to have my parents with me.

New iPad

Recently my husband got a new iPad. It is the iPad 2 I guess. I am not sure how it is different from the iPad 1 but he sure likes it. He has downloaded music and a movie on it so far. He has found that the iTunes cards are very handy rather than keeping a credit card on an internet site. I am sure a newer version will come out soon and make the others not as popular. I think my husband will enjoy his for years.
