EV – D68 ( Virus) : Children

October 7, 2014

Here is the latest update on EV-D68 (virus) It has now been recognized in forty-states. Please be sure to watch your children closely. The first signs mimic the common cold – (sometimes fever, runny nose, sneezing and coughing).

EV-D68 has many strains. In the fifties and sixties, it was the cause of cases of POLIO, though, it only recently has become a problem associated with serious respiratory conditions – particularly with those with asthma and those prone to breathing issues.

The virus mimics the common cold initially. The cough can be intense, and it can cause difficulty in breathing. Many children have neck or back pain or pain in the arms and legs (muscle and body aches). Listen to your children – they probably won’t read “what the symptoms are!”

As recent as within the last week, some cases are causing paralysis!!

If your child is sick – keep him or her at home! The virus passes from person to person, with a cough, sneezes or even touching surfaces. Sneezes travel at over 65 miles per hour.

The best defense is to have children WASH his or her hands vigorously several times a day. Not the kind of washing that water passes over, a dribble of soap, rinse and done!

Wash clear up to the wrists, and thoroughly. This virus is not restricted to the USA. It is MANY places in the world, so please care for these blessed little ones.

Show your children how you want them to wash. Show them how to cover their mouths, with bent elbow, when they cough. Be vigilant. One child has died in the United States. He was four years old.

God bless you and God bless all the children!

Who is Carl Atman?

June 13, 2014

Have you ever had a feeling that you have known a person before, or been to a place that you have never seen before?  Many of us have had those experiences….whether you believe in the possibility of reincarnation or not, this book will definitely hold your attention throughout!

I am a Christian, but I do not dismiss the fact that I am only finite, and do not know all the workings of God.  My faith is strong, but I read the book because I was told it was a love story – and I know and trust the author – I was not disappointed.

So whether you believe in reincarnation, or have different beliefs, or don’t believe in anything at all, this story will hold your attention, chapter to chapter.  It is worth a read, and perhaps it will answer the question for you: Do you believe in reincarnation of not?

Whatever reason you get the book, plan on getting involved and dismiss your stress for a time!  Rest and Regeneration – it is GREAT for all of us!

I actually am old school about some things.   I got the book to take with me to read while sitting under a big old tree.  It was VERY relaxing.  I actually put in a bookmark and closed my eyes for a few.

Enjoy your weekend and insist on some good old fashioned R&R – You are worth it!

Carl use

Each soul’s journey through life on planet earth is an ultimate adventure.

 

Morris says he was compelled to write this book. He was certain many people would enjoy the adventures in time.  It is a journey for many recalling times in their lives they were stirred by an old feeling, or a memory of knowing a place or person, some time in their “past”.

 

THE LIVES OF CARL ATMAN will stir those feelings from within and perhaps bring to mind a love story over the eons of time that manifests in your memory.

 

The greater picture of the billions of lives and these stories are a cosmic phenomenon we can never comprehend in this life. But along with our God-given intuition and creative power, we can imagine. And in all our lives, we learn at one point or another that there is inner guidance available for us if we merely tune in.

 

Reincarnation.  Fact?  Or is this just a wonderful love story that spans centuries? You will know for yourself once you read:

May 2, 2014

Just a quick Thursday good morning, afternoon or evening to you . The days are flying by and I have been trying to complete six books before it’s time to die. No one knows when that will happen and I have spent most of my life writing so I determined sometime after my accident no one will finish what it’s taken me years to write – except me!

Believe it or not they are mostly written – the most difficult part is proofing, making covers and getting everything just right to be put on Amazon. I had a contract with a publishing company for one of my books – the one on how to care for an aging parent – but they sat on it for seven years and I am blessed those years just finished.

I have reconciled, to accept my disabilities as permanent-only because of my faith in God, and my tenacious drive for life, can I do this.  It was a year ago today I was in surgery with a great neurosurgeon (thank you Lord) and getting my back fixed after a burst compression fracture.  I could be completely paralyzed, or dead!

To accept my disabilities as permanent is difficult, but not impossible. Such is life. It isn’t always what we expect, but I expect the best, and perhaps my vision will be clearer now that I am unable to dance all over the place! I can walk (it’s not a very pretty walk), and I have to use a can, and I can write. I can dance in a way, and surely in my head.

I am a stubborn little woman, and my husband still says, after 26 years, a hand full.

So the books will be done within this year. That is my determination. This is what they are:

  1. Lessons in Love – about taking care of a parent, giving them happiness until they die, and not going crazy or getting exhausted in the process. It’s kind of a love story about me caring for my mama for ten years – and we both gained from it!

I am exhausted tonight so I will ignore any typos (sorry!)

2.Whiskeyton. Has nothing to do with Whiskey! This photography- views of a lake and the surrounding mountains from a kayak. Took me from 2004-20011 to get all the photographs, and there will be inspiration (I hope) with each photo, and a Bible verse below. I think, whether you believe in the Bible or not, it is a great book for training in life. It will be for children and adults.

3. The Last Resort – Photographs (again), a  view of the homeless in my area, and of course some interviews and thoughts on the scenario.

4.  Toll 63 – a very interesting book about the lives of an oilman in the early days, a disabled and vibrant young woman, and what transpires when they join forces.  It progresses and follows the life of one of their twins.  The time spans from 1916 to this very day!  I love it so far – do you think I am predjudice?

4.  The Best Bedtime Stories. Positive and fun, the stories are done and I am just waiting for the illustrations.

5.  Poetry, Prose and Private Property.  This book could spares no details and touches every aspect of being human!

I am not trying to brag, there are so many unbelievable authors, but I feel good about my work.  I feel like it is from the heart, experience, and always with a positive overtone – no matter how difficult the experience.

Therein is why my posts have been thin in nature.

I am not trying to brag, but I am not a “salesperson” and if I don’t know the quality of my own “products” I should not sell!  I do think God gives each of us a gift and I am working hard at using it!

Well, that’s it for now. Just an update as to where I have been. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – don’t waste a second of your precious life in anger, fear, or hate. It is NOT WORTH IT as you truly will be the one who pays the big price.

LOVE ONE ANOTHER. I love you for reading! I love you for being my brother and sister human beings! God bless you and your families. I mean it sincerely!

Occupy What? Gas prices?

February 18, 2012

Occupy what? It’s one of those times when I awake that I must sit and write.
I don’t understand the occupy movement. I know youth is full vibrant, and full of
hope and dreams…I understand that. I still have dreams.

But I see no great help from the occupy movement. I wonder who has the time to sit and camp and make a bad reputation for the entire movement.

I wonder what they are accomplishing except a further division between people of the USA. The program now, if you aren’t aware of it, is to divide and separate the people of the USA. Technology is a vast part of this movement, though I love the use of technology in the positive way, and I felt lost the last 10 days with no access to the internet, and limited “connections”.

Would someone please tell my why the violence in the occupy movements; why the rapes and disheveled attitudes of the people in general.

Why are they there? They are but pawns in this movement to control the people. The media is there to tear out the worst of it and, as they do, point out all the lies and negativity of everything!

Next. I dreamed of a nuclear reactior sitting in the middle of the small town, surrounded by the village and mountains. No one seemed to notice.
I was sickened.

When I noted to everyone it was there, it was obvious they had chosen to ignore it. They were given whatever they wanted to shut them up, and then they could go on living as they chose.

When I have soil in my yard I plant vegetables and flowers and trees. I clean up the area. I use it to partake of nature and keep it harm free. The dream was a nightmare.

For the energy provided, are those fifteen (I think) new reactors to be built worth the risk? Ask the Japanese people.

I don’t understand why we can’t use our resources and oil and keep the price of gas down so the downtrodden citizens (and we are) can afford to live…
if not barely!

I don’t give a crap about politics. It’s all a lie for power and money. Don’t you think you’d vote for the candidate who spent his millions on the poor, the Red Cross, and to help others? I would. But it’s never going to happen.

We’ve been duped. We are being torn apart on grounds of culture, sexual preferences, religion, and world trade. A house divided – falls.

Pray (whatever spiritual path you follow). Love one another. Do what you can that MAKES A DIFFERENCE. Take time to sign a petition, if it is valid. Stop wasting hours on useless places on the internet. Do something.
Play with a child. Work hard, or look for work, hard. Don’t give up, but don’t give in.

I’ve lived a large portion of my life, but I will never give up hope and faith.
Do what you know to be right in your heart. Pull together as a people in the secret of keeping your thoughts and actions worthy. You will know a brother or a sister. Bond in ways that will hold the fabric of YOUR lives together – if not for you – for the children.

Try to “get it” – we are on the precipice of Mad Max, and in the center of Big Brother. If you don’t know what I mean, if you can’t relate, ask someone.

God bless you all. I just returned from a 10 day trip to see my husband and welcome my new grandson. I have to catch up, so if there are errors, I will correct later….was just impelled to write this…and these days, I listen to that inner voice EVERY time. Much love to my human brothers and sisters. Bond.

A Christmas Wish – Please

December 22, 2011

I have written over 500 posts and hopefully I know I do have some regular readers. I have tried to publish informative, true, funny, and important posts. I have answered almost every response, and still correspond with many of you. Today I have a request. It would actually answer a Christmas prayer for me.

My son lives in Morocco with his Moroccan wife, and their beautiful 5 month old baby. He has tried to bring them to the USA, but new laws (don’t know if it is just in Morocco, or everywhere,) that do not allow him to bring his family unless he comes alone for 6 months and works-or he has substantial money. He does not want to miss his child’s life; nor does he want to leave them.

He is earning a living by teaching and he is a fine writer. He has entered a contest which is very important in his life, and all he is asking is 5 seconds for a vote. Though
I do not understand the title – I am sure the book will turn a great tale. He is a kind and decent man and Needs this wish to come true. PLEASE take 5 seconds – such a small amount of time – and give him a vote. You don’t even have to read the first five sample pages. I will guarantee it is not trash and he is worthy of a wish come true. It’s not much to ask…..pretty please! He writes a fabulous travel log, and is working hard for his family (as anyone with love, will do. 🙂

This is is baby. Sophie

She needs daddy to be able to earn money at what he does.

This is how you do it. Go to: http://curiosityquills.com/giveaways-contests/nano-virtuosos-competition/round-two/

You don’t even have to read the five pages…just trust me, it will be good. Vote for
the first five pages of “Douchebags, Fag and Hags” (I KNOW- the title is strange, but he is a good man and I trust his works…) Don’t vote for anyone else as it will cancel his vote. Please respond to my request, and I will continue to respond to any thoughts, questions or needs you have! Pretty pretty please.

http://curiosityquills.com/giveaways-contests/nano-virtuosos-competition/round-two/

THANKS, and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS (politically correct or not!). God bless you and all your family.

If you loose your brakes while driving……

March 18, 2010

This is just good emergency information you may not have heard. Do not turn off the engine as if you have power steering you will loose control of the wheel.

Do put your foot on the brake, shift into neutral, and try to pull off the road. That’s about all you can do, but at least you won’t be going one hundred miles an hour and endangering yourself and everyone else on the road.

(If you wonder why I posted this in each category, it’s because most of us drive!)

Be safe when driving. Courtesy is underrated, and if people think “guns” are dangerous, just remember your car is a huge and heavy piece of equipment that can be a huge danger if not driven safely.

Here is a Bible verse that I found JUST WHEN I NEEDED IT. Sometimes it happens that way.
“Even when we are too weak to have any faith left, He remains faithful to us and will help us, for He cannot disown us, who are a part of Himself, and He will always carry out His promises to us.”
2 Timothy 2:13

Have a BEAUTIFUL DAY!

Knowledge is power: H1N1 information

October 22, 2009

IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOUR FAMILY. My eldest son and his wife and four children have it.
The baby is less than two and they are quite worried. It is sneaky and just when you seem a bit better, it comes back. Please protect your family and share any information here you may not have heard.
————————-
This information is taken from the CDC website. I thought it important enough to post as many of us just don’t take the time to check these things out.
————————-
What are “emergency warning signs” that should signal anyone to seek medical care urgently?
In children:
• Fast breathing or trouble breathing
• Bluish skin color
• Not drinking enough fluids
• Not waking up or not interacting
• Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
• Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough
• Fever with a rash
In adults:
• Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
• Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
• Sudden dizziness
• Confusion
• Severe or persistent vomiting

Contamination & Cleaning

How long can influenza virus remain viable on objects (such as books and doorknobs)?
Studies have shown that influenza virus can survive on environmental surfaces and can infect a person for 2 to 8 hours after being deposited on the surface.

What kills influenza virus?
Influenza virus is destroyed by heat (167-212°F [75-100°C]). In addition, several chemical germicides, including chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, detergents (soap), iodophors (iodine-based antiseptics), and alcohols are effective against human influenza viruses if used in proper concentration for a sufficient length of time.

*What if soap and water are not available and alcohol-based products are not allowed in my facility?
If soap and water are not available and alcohol-based products are not allowed, other hand sanitizers that do not contain alcohol may be useful.

What surfaces are most likely to be sources of contamination?
Germs can be spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. Droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person move through the air. Germs can be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets from another person on a surface like a desk, for example, and then touches their own eyes, mouth or nose before washing their hands.

How should waste disposal be handled to prevent the spread of influenza virus?
To prevent the spread of influenza virus, it is recommended that tissues and other disposable items used by an infected person be thrown in the trash. Additionally, persons should wash their hands with soap and water after touching used tissues and similar waste.

What household cleaning should be done to prevent the spread of influenza virus?
To prevent the spread of influenza virus it is important to keep surfaces (especially bedside tables, surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen counters and toys for children) clean by wiping them down with a household disinfectant according to directions on the product label.

How should linens, eating utensils and dishes of persons infected with influenza virus be handled?
Linens, eating utensils, and dishes belonging to those who are sick do not need to be cleaned separately, but importantly these items should not be shared without washing thoroughly first.

Linens (such as bed sheets and towels) should be washed by using household laundry soap and tumbled dry on a hot setting. Individuals should avoid “hugging” laundry prior to washing it to prevent contaminating themselves. Individuals should wash their hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub immediately after handling dirty laundry.

Eating utensils should be washed either in a dishwasher or by hand with water and soap.

DON’T PANIC: Just be prepared and do things to prevent it from happening!

MONEY SCAM – WATCH OUT FOR THIS ONE!

August 6, 2008

There are lots of money scams going on right now. I am sure you’ve gotten the email informing you someone has left you a million or more….most of us recognize this one.

I work part time as a Mystery Shopper (that’s a tricky one too) – you have to come up with a bit
of money up front before you can shop…I may have been scammed with that too, but it’s too late for me! But many legitimate business ventures require an initial investment.

I got an email today telling me all about this great shopping venture involving Wal-Mart and money gram facilities. I thought it sounded TOO GOOD to be true. I was right. I followed though with it
to a point. The point was after the money orders were delivered to me, instead of depositing them or cashing them, I got the bank staff to look them over. Immediately they knew the money orders were frauds.

They told me if I had deposited them and returned what was left (after the supposed shopping evaluation) – I would have been responsible for the money I sent back to the “scammers”. This is a copy of one of the money orders. If you get any thing like this take it to your bank. That pink little dot is one of the tell -tale signs, but the teller could see just by looking. I couldn’t!

The next item is a copy of the email I was sent:

Disappointed? Sure I am. But more than the loss of “potential income” I am disappointed in the human nature of some people. I’ve been in desperate need of money in my lifetime a few times, but I never tried to steal or screw anybody out of their money. All I can say is karma does come back on people; maybe not today, but at some point people pay for their actions. I really feel badly for the elderly and those who really are in need and get scammed.

Please pass this on to anyone you know! I will contact Wal-Mart headquarters, take the information to the police department, and contact the state attorney general’s office.

I am posting this on quite a few categories in hopes of perhaps saving someone a terrible mistake I could very likely have made! Be on your toes and remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

It’s time to buy my CD or BOOK :)

July 17, 2007

I promised I’d only advertise on this blog once a month – it’s been longer than that. If you need
help caring for an elderly parent or relative – buy my book! It’s true. It’s positive. It is from
10 years experience caring for my mama until her death. Also covers recovery. I have several copies that are signed (if you are so inclined to want my little signature:)-just email me for those copies.

My CD has AWESOME original music and the best 3 relaxations I’ve done over 30 years in the field.
I have seen people change their lives by simply dedicating small periods of time to “practice, change habits and create new brain cells. If you are STRESSED break the death grip from the wallet and buy something you can really use (Also makes an awesome gift).

Feedback on those purchasing both has been WONDERFUL and I am very happy as I believe in my ventures and love to hear good news! Just check out the website below for more information, samples, feedback from clients and more……come on, DO IT! 🙂
