Life After an Automobile Accident

I was determined to not let that automobile accident affect the way I interact with my children. I was not going to let that accident rob me of time at the amusement parks, playing golf, or swimming in our pool together. I quickly realized that my body was simply in too much pain all the time to enjoy those activities. I was sore all over even after walking around the supermarket shopping for an hour. My local chiropractor recommended I try getting a thai massage Glasgow and see how I felt.

My initial thoughts were that muscle manipulation was not going to improve my pain, but reluctantly I agreed to see a therapist. She began the massage reaching deep down to my muscle and tissues, and revitalizing those parts of my body. I was feeling great after just once session that now I make it a point to see her at least once a month to keep feeling incredible.

An outdoor maze

Many of us as kids were fascinated with mazes. So, when we buy a house of our own and have a large parcel of land, creating a maze is something we may think about. Of course, you might think designing and planting a maze would be difficult. In fact, it’s not. You can create a maze in your backyard simply by using instant hedges.

Design a maze on graph paper first. Then head to your local garden store and ask a salesperson what types of hedges they have in stock that could be used for an outdoor maze. He’ll show you a variety of hedges up to eight feet in height that can be used to create a maze. Choose the hedges you like the best and have them delivered to your home. Now all you have to do is plant them in the same pattern as your graph paper maze.

Nightmare on My Street

Last evening I went for a walk with my dog. It was a lovely evening, brisk air, stars were out. A couple of people were meandering towards us. My dog started growling at them. That was totally unlike her. I noticed that they were lurching as if unsteady on their feet. Their clothes were ragged and their faces. Oh my god, zombies. I started to panic – this can’t be happening. What a nightmare! I turned and ran. But, I tripped over the dog. The zombies were coming closer and then one leaned over me and asked if I was hurt. Startled I didn’t answer. The second one said that I must be scared because of their costumes. Turns out, they were on their way to an “undead” party. After they helped me to my feet, I got the name of their Manchester makeup artist and started mentally planning my next party.

Romance and history at Newcastle’s Bessie Surtees House

Aubone Surtees’s pretty young daughter Bessie loved John Scott but her father was having none of it. Bessie’s family was wealthy, and John was a poor coal merchant’s son. One night in 1772 John spirited her away out a first floor window to nearby Scotland, where they were married. All came right in the end as John became a lawyer and eventually Lord Chancellor of England under the title Lord Eldon.

All has come right with the house as well. Along with a neighboring structure it has been restored. In addition to the regional headquarters of the preservation organization English heritage they hold three rooms that are open to the public. They hold an exhibition that depicts the history of the buildings and the neighborhood, including many specifically Jacobean pieces. Once you have chosen which of the delightful Premier Inn hotels in Newcastle to stay at, make sure you start planning your itinery.

Remodeling In Your Home

When we decided one day that it was time to remodel our bathroom, I knew it would be a long task that would look great at the end. We started out by removing our toilets, vanities, bathtub and tile. We went and picked out the colors that we wanted to paint the walls and did that first. We then went back and purchased our new toilet, vanities and tile. We did all of that work on our own and enjoyed working together to have the new bathroom we always wanted.

We hired bathrooms Bolton to install a bath fitter after we picked out a design that would match our decor. They were very professional, affordable and did a wonderful job. We were very pleased on how the bathroom turned out and are now working on our basement bathroom as well.

Dreams do Come True

After three marriages and two children, Marianne was ready for a change. She longed for the body that stopped cars when she was a teenager. She longed for a better image for herself. Marianne was completely happy with her life, but not with the extra pounds she carried in her tummy. Wearing a designer pair of jeans without having to go up two sizes just so the waist line could fit her muffin top was a dream. Marianne realized her dream could come true after seeing a cosmetic surgery commercial while at home. The commercial showed beautiful before and after photos that rivaled the photos of beautiful celebrities. She made the decision to call for an appointment to look into vaser liposuction. She could feel herself feeling better about her body already. That is because she knew that change was possible. Dreams really do come true.

A Doctor’s Short Story

My beeper woke me up in the middle of the night. I, Pat Tecake, MD, was used to this routine. I grabbed my keys and got ready in neon light to drive to the hospital. Living in the gambling capital of Las Jonas, drunk driving was a common occurrence. The usual victims were drunkards themselves, stumbling back to their hotels. Emotionless, I slipped on my down jacket and stepped outside. “Bang.”

“Bang.” I didn’t bother turning my head; just another brain-addled addict talking to himself. I’ve learned along time ago that the only addicts you can help are the ones who want to help themselves.

“Bang,” but louder this time. I turned around. My eyes flashed to the gun in his hand, pointed directly at my head. But I then became transfixed on the gaping wound right below his left eye. The flesh had rotted and shown bone, white as snow.

He spoke again, this time saying something different. Something odd, and the last thing I will hear in my unfulfilled life is pre-operative assessment training.
