Dr John Smith: Cransley Hospice staff can hold their heads up high

Our heads go down and we mutter something like “it was nothing, anyone could have done it”.

That may be the case, but it generally isn’t, for we have made the choice to care about someone, when others might have walked away.

So it’s heads up and a big thank you for saying that.

This week it happened to me. I hadn’t seen the lady for 16 years when she said “hello”. To be honest I could not recognise her and said so. No worries because it was a long time ago when her mum was a patient in the hospice. Sixteen years on and she wanted to thank me for the care that was given.

She hadn’t forgotten and did not want to forget. What was a difficult time became a good time, and out of that time came even more good because some time later she began to work in the hospice too. It made sense of the tragedy and the memories that she has are good ones. There are no regrets.

The word hospice literally means a resting place on a journey. In the sense that we use it today the journey is coming to an end.

To rest we need support and good symptom control, to rest we need to know that our family and friends are being cared for, to rest we need people to listen to us, to hear our fears, to hear us say thank you for the life that we have been given and, yes, to be able to express our regrets for what we have struggled with, for the wrongs we may have done, to seek forgiveness and to be forgiven.

Hospice is often the place where we begin to make sense of our lives, a sort of summing up of what we have been, what we are and what we mean to others.

It is when this happens that people express their thanks. And it is not a transitory thank you either, it is almost lifelong. Yes, I can hold my head up high and Cransley Hospice and its staff should too.





How effective is Dr #dr #batra #hair #transplant


#

Homeopathy is absolute waste of time and money. Time is important because if the medication doesn t work and you lose precious time, recovery becomes even more difficult. Homeopathy with batra is fake. He will rob you. He is a virtual Quack.

I have no personal experience but one of my friend had visited there for his hair loss problem.

He started his treatment at Dr. Batra s 5 months ago and he had consultation with actual doctor only once(when he went there for the first time). During rest of the 3 meetings, receptionist gave him medicines and told that Dr. Dinesh had just left.

He was told that Dr. Dinesh would be handling his case but he was very least interested in giving advice consultation or even seeing his patients
Before appointment he had to wait for 2 weeks because he was out of town, sick, on leave or doing some urgent work and on appointment day he met him in the hallway for 2 mins and that s all(that was their treatment).

Feeling like a fool as he spent 15000 INR for hairfall treatment at Dr. Batra s.

And about results, his hair fall and dandruff is same as before.

  • Is the Dr. Batra clinic genuine?

  • Is Dr Batras clinic is good for hair treatment in Kolkata?

  • How effective is Dr Batra’s treatment for warts on the face?

    Indeed there are no metastudies that substantiate homeopathy effectiveness. Better guess is ,it works a lot like placebo. There are evidences of heavy metal toxicities. and steroid induced side effect with long term homeopathy patrons. I fail to understand why Dr. Batra, or any other homeopathy practitioner for that matter, refuse to give away the ingredients / contents of their medicines. You dont want to take finasteride because there is evidence it may cause sexual disturbance, but what about homeopath, you have absolutely no idea what is going on in your system. You question and ask your allopathic doctor millions of questions regarding pathogenesis of diseases and drugs, but blindly trust homeopathic treatment.

    Trust science my friends. If you want to go for homeopathy ask your doctor to describe you the reason behind your concern ( dont settle for every thing starts with your digestive system, we know better than that ). and how do they plan on targeting it. Let me know if you come up with something plausible

    P.S. for all the scare finasteride seems to be running with, please read the researches that explicitly state the doses required for male pattern baldness ( 1/10 of what is required for prostate conditions ) has not been associated with irreversible sexual disturbances and occurrence of the side effects is more in people who know about the side effect, an effect called nocebo.

    Homeopathy as a treatment modality has never been proved to be effective in double blinded trials (which is the gold standard to know efficacy of treatment) AFAIK.
    That said I think Dr.Batras is just publicity and advertisement for looting money. India has a population of 130+ crores and you will always find gullible people who fall for such tactics.
    Have a look at these three links, all the answers are similar and I think it was created by Dr.Batra itself for publicity.

    Even quora has been spammed by these useless junks.

    Dr.Batras ads run everywhere. pls think for a while who pays for these ads? It is the gullibe people who have visited Dr.Batras and have enable this organization to have grown this far. Do you want to be one?

    Vikas Sharma, MD. A dermatologist and hair transplant surgeon by profession.

    I don t know much about Dr. Batra s treatments but the only widely accepted treatments for male pattern baldness are
    1. MINOXIDIL: FOR HAIR LOSS – Hair Section
    2. Finasteride ( for males)
    3. Hair transplant (you can read more about it here DermaOne Clinic – Best Hair Transplant Skin Improvement Clinic in Delhi )

    If they re offering one of these, then yes it s likely to be effective. Other than these, most other therapeutic options have got limited data to support their use as of now.

    Before approaching Dr Batra confirm what kind of hair fall are you suffering from? Is it due to
    1. Deficiency of some vitamin(iron, zinc etc).
    2. Due to hard/improper water.
    3. MPB(Male Patter Baldness)(Happens only in males)

    If its due to 1 or 2, there s nothing much to worry about and absolutely no need to go to Dr Batra. Find out which vitamin you are deficient of by having simple blood tests and take corresponding vitamins to compensate for deficiency. Also buy any hair gain tonic/oil and apply it on your scalp every third day, overnight. Hair fall issue will be resolved in 2-3 months. Also you will regain your lost hairs. For option 2 stop using hard/bore water for bathing and use hair tonic/oil.

    But if its option 3 you are suffering from. BANG. You have a big reason to worry about. The thing causing your hair fall is in your genes. You just can t avoid it. The max you can do is slow it down. Going little deeper, the cause for your hair loss is dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is produced in male body by conversion of free-testosterone with the aid of 5-alpha-reductase. Since you are dealing with chemicals inside your body, there e very very little external medications can do.

    Now there s a good news and a bad news. What do you want to hear first. Did you say good? goto good_label; else goto bad_label;

    good_label:
    So there s a medicine approved by FDA to control level of DHT in your body called finasteride. Its also known as propecia, proscar etc. Consuming 1 mg of it everyday will reduce your hair fall in 3-6 Months. YAY. You will need to consume it religiously until you want hairs intact on your head. The day you stop having it, you will fall back to where you started from pretty soon.

    bad_label:
    And now. the BAD news
    Finasteride does control your hair fall but it comes with its owl side/ill effects. And my friend those side effects are worth considering before you start taking it.

    if(!good_label.read()) goto good_label;

    Lets us first understand how finstaeride works. Finasteride is a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor. Which means it prevents production of 5-alpha-reductase in your body which in turn prevents conversion of free-testosterons into DHT which in-turn prevents your hair follicles from dying. But god gave us 5-alpha-reductase for some reasons. Its just not present to make you bald. Getting bald is a side effect of its primary function. Its a sex hormone. In short it keeps your reproductive system healthy and working. Inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase is known to cause ED(Erection Dysfunction) and libido(lost of interest in having sex). But there s no concrete proof of this. Also not everybody gets the side effects. Speculations are it depends on race, heredity and what not. There have been several studies made on ill effects of finasteride which confirms ED and libido but there s no rock solid proof yet. Also its been said these side effects are reversible after stopping medication(no proof on it yet too).

    So my friend. If you are ready to take risk, consult your family doctor and a good dermatologist and start gulping finasteride. But if you consider these side effects to be not worth it reach out any homeopathy(Batra) or herbal medication for MPB. These will not stop your hair fall but will definitely control it to good extent.

    Hope that makes some sense. Take care!

    The 12 Stages of Life

    The Twelve Stages of the Human Life Cycle

    Which stage of life is the most important? Some might claim that infancy is the key stage, when a baby’s brain is wide open to new experiences that will influence all the rest of its later life. Others might argue that it’s adolescence or young adulthood, when physical health is at its peak. Many cultures around the world value late adulthood more than any other, arguing that it is at this stage that the human being has finally acquired the wisdom necessary to guide others. Who is right? The truth of the matter is that every stage of life is equally significant and necessary for the welfare of humanity. In my book The Human Odyssey: Navigating the Twelve Stages of Life, I’ve written that each stage of life has its own unique “gift” to contribute to the world. We need to value each one of these gifts if we are to truly support the deepest needs of human life. Here are what I call the twelve gifts of the human life cycle:

    1. Prebirth: Potential – The child who has not yet been born could become anything – a Michaelangelo, a Shakespeare, a Martin Luther King – and thus holds for all of humanity the principle of what we all may yet become in our lives.
    2. Birth: Hope – When a child is born, it instills in its parents and other caregivers a sense of optimism; a sense that this new life may bring something new and special into the world. Hence, the newborn represents the sense of hope that we all nourish inside of ourselves to make the world a better place.
    3. Infancy (Ages 0-3): Vitality – The infant is a vibrant and seemingly unlimited source of energy. Babies thus represent the inner dynamo of humanity, ever fueling the fires of the human life cycle with new channels of psychic power.
    4. Early Childhood (Ages 3-6): Playfulness – When young children play, they recreate the world anew. They take what is and combine it with the what is possible to fashion events that have never been seen before in the history of the world. As such, they embody the principle of innovation and transformation that underlies every single creative act that has occurred in the course of civilization.
    5. Middle Childhood (Ages 6-8): Imagination – In middle childhoood, the sense of an inner subjective self develops for the first time, and this self is alive with images taken in from the outer world, and brought up from the depths of the unconscious. This imagination serves as a source of creative inspiration in later life for artists, writers, scientists, and anyone else who finds their days and nights enriched for having nurtured a deep inner life.
    6. Late Childhood (Ages 9-11): Ingenuity – Older children have acquired a wide range of social and technical skills that enable them to come up with marvelous strategies and inventive solutions for dealing with the increasing pressures that society places on them. This principle of ingenuity lives on in that part of ourselves that ever seeks new ways to solve practical problems and cope with everyday responsibilities.
    7. Adolescence (Ages 12-20): Passion – The biological event of puberty unleashes a powerful set of changes in the adolescent body that reflect themselves in a teenager’s sexual, emotional, cultural, and/or spiritual passion. Adolescence passion thus represents a significant touchstone for anyone who is seeking to reconnect with their deepest inner zeal for life.
    8. Early Adulthood (Ages 20-35): Enterprise – It takes enterprise for young adults to accomplish their many responsibilities, including finding a home and mate, establishing a family or circle of friends, and/or getting a good job. This principle of enterprise thus serves us at any stage of life when we need to go out into the world and make our mark.
    9. Midlife (Ages 35-50): Contemplation – After many years in young adulthood of following society’s scripts for creating a life, people in midlife often take a break from worldly responsibilities to reflect upon the deeper meaning of their lives, the better to forge ahead with new understanding. This element of contemplation represents an important resource that we can all draw upon to deepen and enrich our lives at any age.
    10. Mature Adulthood (Ages 50-80): Benevolence – Those in mature adulthood have raised families, established themselves in their work life, and become contributors to the betterment of society through volunteerism, mentorships, and other forms of philanthropy. All of humanity benefits from their benevolence. Moreover, we all can learn from their example to give more of ourselves to others.
    11. Late Adulthood (Age 80+): Wisdom – Those with long lives have acquired a rich repository of experiences that they can use to help guide others. Elders thus represent the source of wisdom that exists in each of us, helping us to avoid the mistakes of the past while reaping the benefits of life’s lessons.
    12. Death Dying: Life – Those in our lives who are dying, or who have died, teach us about the value of living. They remind us not to take our lives for granted, but to live each moment of life to its fullest, and to remember that our own small lives form of a part of a greater whole.

    Since each stage of life has its own unique gift to give to humanity, we need to do whatever we can to support each stage, and to protect each stage from attempts to suppress its individual contribution to the human life cycle. Thus, we need to be wary, for example, of attempts to thwart a young child’s need to play through the establishment high-pressure formal academic preschools. We should protect the wisdom of aged from elder abuse. We need to do what we can to help our adolescents at risk. We need to advocate for prenatal education and services for poor mothers, and support safe and healthy birthing methods in third world countries. We ought to take the same attitude toward nurturing the human life cycle as we do toward saving the environment from global warming and industrial pollutants. For by supporting each stage of the human life cycle, we will help to ensure that all of its members are given care and helped to blossom to their fullest degree.

It’s extremely satisfying to help a patient who has dental needs to gain a functional and beautiful smile.

    Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman was a show that focused on Dr. Mike, a woman doctor in a time when that was unheard of. It started with her journey to Colorado Springs to be the town’s physician after her father’s death in 1868. The show focused around the town that she loved, treated and it also focused on the three children, Matthew (Chad Allen), Colleen (Erika Flores, later Jessica Bowman) and Brian Cooper (Shawn Toovey), whom she had to raise after their mother died from a rattle snake bite. In the later years, the show focused on Dr. Mike and Sully (Joe Lando) who got married and had a daughter towards the end of the shows successful run. There have been two movies made for television, and fans are gathering together in an effort that a third Dr. Quinn movie be produced. more less

    Trivia (43)

    After Matthew sets the table, waiting for the soldiers to knock on the door looking for renegades, there is nothing but plates and cups. In the next scene, we can see bread.

    Vehicles in 1867? In the scene where Charlotte and the kids drive Michaela back to her homestead, if you look above Charlotte’s hat, you can see a white van driving to the left in the background.

    Colm Meaney was Miles Edward O’Brien on both Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

    In this episode Matthew introduces himself to Ingrid, however in two of the previous episodes Matthew interacted with Ingrid. Once inviting her to dinner, and even committed a crime with her brother.

    Abagail’s grave marker has her birth year as 1839 so she and Sully would have married in 1857(Sully said she was 18 when she got married). In the pilot, however, Charlotte Cooper says Sully came to Colorado in the Pike’s Peak Rush in 1859. In the “Running Ghost” episode, Loren says Abagail grew up in the store so she couldn’t have married Sully before he came to Colorado.

    Earthworms are hermphroditic, but reproduction does not happen quite as Dr. Mike describes. A hermaphroditic worm cannot reproduce by itself. It must “couple” with another worm, and then they fertilize each other. Each will lay a “cocoon” full of eggs following cross-fertilization.

    It was around the time period of Dr. Quinn that the Ku Klux Klan originated: 1866

    Becky’s mother appears in this episode, but she supposedly died in the episode “Father’s Day.”

    When Was the Pre-Tribulation Rapture First Taught?
    I t has long been claimed by those who interpret prophecy allegorically that the doctrine of the pre-tribulation Rapture is a new doctrine, and since it is allegedly a new doctrine it cannot be a true one.
    Gary DeMar, President American Vision, says: A majority of prophecy writers and speakers teach that the church will be raptured before a future tribulational period. But did you know that prior to about 1830 no such doctrine existed. No one in all of church history ever taught pretribulational rapture (cited from. Read More

    15 Bible Reasons a Christian Should Join a Bible-Believing Church
    The following is by the late Dr. Bruce Lackey:
    N ew Testament Christians joined a local church. The churches had membership lists, either in writing or in memory. Since the Scripture was given for instruction in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16), God evidently wants us to follow their example. Although there is no specific verse that says, “Thou shalt join a church,” there are fifteen places that either require or teach by example that we should do so.
    (1) THE FIRST CHURCH HAD A MEMBERSHIP. “And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)” (Ac 1:15). This Jerusalem church had a list of about 120 names that made up. Read More

    I hear from many people who tell me there is no really sound church in their entire area, and in at least many cases, I know this is true. They can t find a church that is strong in God s Word and prayer and holiness and separation from the world and ecclesiastical separation and serious discipleship, a church that isn t at least dabbling in contemporary music and moving quickly in that direction and thus building bridges to.

    Biblical Church Discipline
    E very church is required by God to rule itself by the sole authority for faith and practice, which is the New Testament faith recorded in the canon of Scripture. Christ is the one Head of the church, and as we see in Revelation 1-3, He walks in the midst of the churches and judges the churches. He will not judge a church on the basis of the society and culture in which it exists. He will judge solely on the basis of His Word which is eternally settled in heaven.We must not have an American church or an Australian church or a Nepali church or a Korean church or a Russian church. We must have a biblical church.
    Christ did not accept a church in Corinth that was influenced by Corinthian society. He did not sympathize with such conformity. He used the apostle Paul to instruct and exhort and reprove that church to. Read More

    Third Generation Baptist Preacher Committed to Emerging Church

    Changes Within the Independent Baptist Movement
    The following is an expanded editionof a reply I gave to a missionary who wrote to express concern about IB churches that are adapting CCM.
    T here is a fierce battle raging within the Independent Baptist (IB) movement between those who are committed to the old Bible paths and those who are enticed by a new way. When I was saved in 1973 and joined an IB church a couple of months later it was assumed that practically every IB church was committed to the old paths. The SBC was universally condemned for its worldliness and theological compromise. A large percentage of IB churches had come out of the Convention and they tended to be plainspoken about its error. Today, a lot of former Ind. Baptists have gone back into the SBC. Read More


    I-66 toll plan rolls forward – The Washington Post #dr. #gridlock, #virginia

    I-66 toll plan rolls forward

    In the summer, drivers on Interstate 66 will see crews preparing for the toll-gantry system along the lanes inside the Capital Beltway.

    It won’t take long, compared with other major transportation projects. The tolling signs will be activated about a year later, in mid-2017. The image above gives drivers an idea about what they will see as they approach the entry points for I-66.

    There’s still some planning left. This week, the Virginia Department of Transportation is holding public hearings on design details. The first was Monday night at the Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, the second is from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Eagle Rock Middle School in Ashburn, and the final is 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at VDOT’s Northern Virginia headquarters, 4975 Alliance Dr. in Fairfax.

    The Monday night hearing in the school cafeteria drew several hundred people, who studied the project’s display boards and listened to a presentation by Amanda Baxter, the project’s manager for VDOT. At the end of her talk, the floor was opened for public testimony. But out of the crowd of several hundred, only six wanted to talk. This was remarkable, given the long, controversial history of the interstate inside the Beltway. Arlingtonians live in the project’s corridor and will feel the full effect of it, both as residents and commuters.

    People who have been following this project for the past year suggested that people may be holding their fire for VDOT’s upcoming sessions about a separate project that will widen the eastbound side of the highway for four miles between the Dulles Connector Road and Ballston. The widening was part of a compromise reached only last month between Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) and the General Assembly, which was considering bills that would have blocked the high-occupancy toll-lanes project. The state needs to prepare an environmental assessment for the widening and hold hearings that are likely to draw close scrutiny in Arlington. Construction could start in early 2018 and be completed in early 2020.

    The tolling signs that will appear on the approaches to I-66 will look familiar to travelers on the west side of the Beltway and on I-95 in Northern Virginia. But as Falls Church City Council member David Snyder pointed out during his testimony Monday, “I-66 inside the Beltway is a unique highway.” For much of the nine-mile route, it’s two lanes in each direction through highly developed suburbs leading into the District, where many drivers come to a halt for a traffic light at Constitution Avenue NW.

    Snyder and many of the project’s planners are counting on new programs that will help drivers leave their cars behind. These new programs, including enhanced carpooling and commuter buses, will be financed with toll revenue. The project’s success depends on them, Snyder said.

    The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission soon will select a first round of projects that can be ready to go when the high-occupancy toll lanes open.

    The HOT lanes will replace today’s high-occupancy-vehicle lanes, which allow I-66 access at rush hours to two-person carpools and those with exemptions, such as drivers of certain hybrid cars.

    Arlingtonians have mixed feelings about the project. Creating HOT lanes means that the lanes will be open at rush hours to solo drivers willing to pay the variable toll. Some fear that will greatly increase the traffic on I-66. Others fear the tolling will push today’s I-66 drivers onto parallel routes and neighborhood streets. VDOT traffic models do not show a significant effect on such routes, but even projects that are overall successes can have some unintended consequences that their planners need to revisit after the project opens.

    The Tuesday night hearing at the Eagle Rock Middle School cafeteria, 42901 Waxpool Road, Ashburn, is likely to draw a crowd with different concerns. Many will focus on the impact of tolls on long-distance commuters, including those who today pay tolls to use the Greenway and the Dulles Toll Road before they reach I-66 inside the Beltway.


    Robin McGraw Plastic Surgery Speculations #robin #mcgraw #plastic #surgery,dr #phil #wife,celebrity #plastic


    #

    Robin McGraw is an American author, speaker and actress, but best known for being wife of Dr. Phil McGraw . popular author and television talk show host. She was born on December 28, 1953 in Irving, Texas. She spends her time running and working for a non-profit charitable organization with the task of helping disadvantaged families and their children. Robin wrote and published two books – Inside My Heart and What’s Age Got To Do With It? Both of them reached number one on New York Times best-selling book chart.

    As an actress she appeared in an episode of soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. She also made appearances in Dr.Phil, Entertainment Tonight, Christmas in Washington, Larry King Live and many others.

    Robin McGraw stated that she has never undergone plastic surgery procedures and that she takes care of her body in a natural way. She says that the most important thing is to stay hydrated and to drink a lots of water. She always uses hydrating hand creme because she is convinced that the hands are the first place you can see a woman aging. She also claims she has found some natural ways to make your face look like you had a facelift. Also, her recipe for aging well includes a proper amount of physical activity, so she takes Pilates lessons.

    In spite of all that Robin claims, some critics and fans don t agree. They say they can hardly recognize her recently. Rumors are she has done some brow lift and porcelain veneers procedure to make her teeth look more natural. People also speculate about her regular use of Botox and other fillers, as about having a nose job done.

    Dr John Smith: Cransley Hospice staff can hold their heads up high

    Our heads go down and we mutter something like “it was nothing, anyone could have done it”.

    That may be the case, but it generally isn’t, for we have made the choice to care about someone, when others might have walked away.

    So it’s heads up and a big thank you for saying that.

    This week it happened to me. I hadn’t seen the lady for 16 years when she said “hello”. To be honest I could not recognise her and said so. No worries because it was a long time ago when her mum was a patient in the hospice. Sixteen years on and she wanted to thank me for the care that was given.

    She hadn’t forgotten and did not want to forget. What was a difficult time became a good time, and out of that time came even more good because some time later she began to work in the hospice too. It made sense of the tragedy and the memories that she has are good ones. There are no regrets.

    The word hospice literally means a resting place on a journey. In the sense that we use it today the journey is coming to an end.

    To rest we need support and good symptom control, to rest we need to know that our family and friends are being cared for, to rest we need people to listen to us, to hear our fears, to hear us say thank you for the life that we have been given and, yes, to be able to express our regrets for what we have struggled with, for the wrongs we may have done, to seek forgiveness and to be forgiven.

    Hospice is often the place where we begin to make sense of our lives, a sort of summing up of what we have been, what we are and what we mean to others.

    It is when this happens that people express their thanks. And it is not a transitory thank you either, it is almost lifelong. Yes, I can hold my head up high and Cransley Hospice and its staff should too.

    The 12 Stages of Life

    The Twelve Stages of the Human Life Cycle

    Which stage of life is the most important? Some might claim that infancy is the key stage, when a baby’s brain is wide open to new experiences that will influence all the rest of its later life. Others might argue that it’s adolescence or young adulthood, when physical health is at its peak. Many cultures around the world value late adulthood more than any other, arguing that it is at this stage that the human being has finally acquired the wisdom necessary to guide others. Who is right? The truth of the matter is that every stage of life is equally significant and necessary for the welfare of humanity. In my book The Human Odyssey: Navigating the Twelve Stages of Life, I’ve written that each stage of life has its own unique “gift” to contribute to the world. We need to value each one of these gifts if we are to truly support the deepest needs of human life. Here are what I call the twelve gifts of the human life cycle:

    1. Prebirth: Potential – The child who has not yet been born could become anything – a Michaelangelo, a Shakespeare, a Martin Luther King – and thus holds for all of humanity the principle of what we all may yet become in our lives.
    2. Birth: Hope – When a child is born, it instills in its parents and other caregivers a sense of optimism; a sense that this new life may bring something new and special into the world. Hence, the newborn represents the sense of hope that we all nourish inside of ourselves to make the world a better place.
    3. Infancy (Ages 0-3): Vitality – The infant is a vibrant and seemingly unlimited source of energy. Babies thus represent the inner dynamo of humanity, ever fueling the fires of the human life cycle with new channels of psychic power.
    4. Early Childhood (Ages 3-6): Playfulness – When young children play, they recreate the world anew. They take what is and combine it with the what is possible to fashion events that have never been seen before in the history of the world. As such, they embody the principle of innovation and transformation that underlies every single creative act that has occurred in the course of civilization.
    5. Middle Childhood (Ages 6-8): Imagination – In middle childhoood, the sense of an inner subjective self develops for the first time, and this self is alive with images taken in from the outer world, and brought up from the depths of the unconscious. This imagination serves as a source of creative inspiration in later life for artists, writers, scientists, and anyone else who finds their days and nights enriched for having nurtured a deep inner life.
    6. Late Childhood (Ages 9-11): Ingenuity – Older children have acquired a wide range of social and technical skills that enable them to come up with marvelous strategies and inventive solutions for dealing with the increasing pressures that society places on them. This principle of ingenuity lives on in that part of ourselves that ever seeks new ways to solve practical problems and cope with everyday responsibilities.
    7. Adolescence (Ages 12-20): Passion – The biological event of puberty unleashes a powerful set of changes in the adolescent body that reflect themselves in a teenager’s sexual, emotional, cultural, and/or spiritual passion. Adolescence passion thus represents a significant touchstone for anyone who is seeking to reconnect with their deepest inner zeal for life.
    8. Early Adulthood (Ages 20-35): Enterprise – It takes enterprise for young adults to accomplish their many responsibilities, including finding a home and mate, establishing a family or circle of friends, and/or getting a good job. This principle of enterprise thus serves us at any stage of life when we need to go out into the world and make our mark.
    9. Midlife (Ages 35-50): Contemplation – After many years in young adulthood of following society’s scripts for creating a life, people in midlife often take a break from worldly responsibilities to reflect upon the deeper meaning of their lives, the better to forge ahead with new understanding. This element of contemplation represents an important resource that we can all draw upon to deepen and enrich our lives at any age.
    10. Mature Adulthood (Ages 50-80): Benevolence – Those in mature adulthood have raised families, established themselves in their work life, and become contributors to the betterment of society through volunteerism, mentorships, and other forms of philanthropy. All of humanity benefits from their benevolence. Moreover, we all can learn from their example to give more of ourselves to others.
    11. Late Adulthood (Age 80+): Wisdom – Those with long lives have acquired a rich repository of experiences that they can use to help guide others. Elders thus represent the source of wisdom that exists in each of us, helping us to avoid the mistakes of the past while reaping the benefits of life’s lessons.
    12. Death Dying: Life – Those in our lives who are dying, or who have died, teach us about the value of living. They remind us not to take our lives for granted, but to live each moment of life to its fullest, and to remember that our own small lives form of a part of a greater whole.

    Since each stage of life has its own unique gift to give to humanity, we need to do whatever we can to support each stage, and to protect each stage from attempts to suppress its individual contribution to the human life cycle. Thus, we need to be wary, for example, of attempts to thwart a young child’s need to play through the establishment high-pressure formal academic preschools. We should protect the wisdom of aged from elder abuse. We need to do what we can to help our adolescents at risk. We need to advocate for prenatal education and services for poor mothers, and support safe and healthy birthing methods in third world countries. We ought to take the same attitude toward nurturing the human life cycle as we do toward saving the environment from global warming and industrial pollutants. For by supporting each stage of the human life cycle, we will help to ensure that all of its members are given care and helped to blossom to their fullest degree.

    RA and Lung Disease: What You Need to Know

    Besides the joints, the inflammatory process that underlies rheumatoid arthritis (RA) also affects other parts of the body, including lungs, skin, eyes, digestive system, heart and blood vessels. RA-related lung complications are the most common extra-articular ( outside of the joints ) manifestations of RA and include pulmonary nodules (small growths in the lungs); pleural effusion (a buildup of fluid between the lung and chest wall); bronchiectasis (damage to the airways); and interstitial lung disease (ILD).

    In fact, it is estimated that 1 in 10 people with rheumatoid arthritis will develop ILD over the course of their disease, making it as deadly among people with RA as congestive heart failure.

    What Is Interstitial Lung Disease?

    Interstitial lung disease refers to a group of disorders characterized by inflammation and scarring of the lung tissue. In the case of RA-associated ILD, the scarring is caused when the over-active immune system attacks the lungs. When the scarring builds up over time, breathing becomes difficult, and patients may need lung transplants to regain function.

    Risk Factors for Interstitial Lung Disease

    The risk of developing lung disease is eight times higher in people with RA than in the general population. However, most people with RA are not affected. Risk factors for ILD include:

    • Smoking. People with RA who smoke are more likely to develop ILD.

    Higher RA disease activity. High levels of rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptides (antiCCP) antibodies substances that are indicative of more active disease increase the risk for development of ILD.

    Older age at diagnosis. People who are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis after age 60 are more likely to develop ILD.

    Male Gender. Men with RA have a two-to-three times higher risk of developing ILD than women.

    Treatment with methotrexate and other DMARDs. Several DMARDs, including methotrexate, leflunomide and azathioprine, as well as biologics, particularly tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors, have been associated with RA-ILD, according to a literature review published in the April 2014 issue of Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism. But Dr. Teng Moua, a pulmonologist specializing in ILD at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. says the risk of methotrexate-induced lung injury is less than 1 percent and is reversible once the drug is stopped. According to Dr. Moua, the benefits of methotrexate far outweigh its risks. However, methotrexate is not recommended for people with existing ILD or RA-ILD by the American College of Rheumatology in their 2012 guidelines.

    Diagnosis of Interstitial Lung Disease

    It is challenging to catch ILD early because it doesn t cause any specific symptoms. Once shortness of breath and dry cough develop, the disease has probably already progressed.

    The diagnostic process includes a comprehensive clinical exam, X-rays and lung function tests. If there are risk factors for ILD or abnormal X-ray findings, your doctor will likely perform a high resolution CT.

    Treatment of Interstitial Lung Disease

    Interstitial lung disease is hard to treat and has a high mortality rate. According to a 2010 study published in the journal Arthritis Rheumatism. once ILD was diagnosed, the average survival in patients with RA was 2.6 years.

    People diagnosed with ILD in its early stages can be helped with medication such as corticosteroids and immunosuppressants and put on the waiting list for a lung transplant sooner. However, these treatments don t work for everyone. The best approach is to treat the underlying RA, although ILD may get worse despite well controlled arthritis.

    Future Direction in Interstitial Lung Disease

    Researchers say an important task for the medical community is to understand the mechanisms behind the development of ILD in people with RA. More detailed knowledge of these processes may one day open doors to better treatments.

    Also needed are comprehensive guidelines for screening and diagnosing ILD in at-risk patients so they can be found and treated earlier.

    How Can You Protect Your Lungs?

    Don t smoke. Get flu and pneumonia vaccines (but always check with your doctor before getting any vaccinations). If you re taking immunosuppressant medications for your RA, you may be at a higher risk for illnesses like the flu and pneumonia, which may cause further lung-related complications. Have regular check-ups, so your doctor can monitor your lungs regularly. Tell your doctor if you have shortness of breath or dry cough right away.

    Key Colony Beach Motel

    This was a really great place to stay for 3 days! Amazing beach/water access for a low cost per night.

    You can roam next store and get a drink to bring to over.

    In the middle of the keys so great central point.

    Rooms are what they are. You are at a motel for $111/night. Nothing fancy but decent.

    My only 1 negative- there was carpet in Our room which is not great for a sandy beach motel. I woke up with some bites on my leg that didn t ever itch (meaning they weren t misquotes ) and when we left, my boyfriend and I had little red bites all over our feet. Hard to say if it was the hotel, beach or whatever. But just a warning.

    The motel, view from the water

    The beach at key colony beach motel

    Stay away from this dump.sunday morning the manager,or the person in charge was drunk. 9:00 am at work drunk. He was ao drunk he had children checking people in and out. It was funny, but also very sad, The owners should be notified.The room was full of cockroaches
    realy disgusting.The problem with the small cockroaches is
    you sometimes take them back home with you.

    Be carefull jumping in the water

    I will give 5 stars because our view from our ocean front room is amazing and the beach is nice and the pool. Its a very laid back place to stay and its not overly crowded. We are here for 7 nights and we re half way through our trip. Yes, the motel needs a major renovation and upgrades but its an older motel. Don t stay here if you re too picky with everything being brand new. This isnt something that bothers us. It is really clean and has NO bugs and that is what we look for. The private beach is nice so that we dont have to drive anywhere. You are close to everything and will be able to either walk or drive to a few different places to eat in key colony.

    View from our room window.

    I really enjoyed our stay. Clean room, basic amenities, and hasn t been updated. I really enjoyed that our bathroom still had the original curved tiles from its past- love it when those things can be preserved. Small private beachfront with ample seating. Liquor store next door. Quiet street. Amazing rate- we paid $144 after all taxes. Would stay again!

    Our original bathroom. Love the tiles! Very clean.

    LOVED this motel. A little slice of heaven. The rate was only $100 for a motel room just steps away from a private beach for motel guests. ANY room you get is such a very short walk to the beach and wonderful swimming pool. If you forget something in your room, no problem! You can pop back to your room in 15 seconds.

    There are ample beachside lounge adirondack chairs and tiki huts for shade with tables chairs under them. The motel was clean, and the staff is friendly. It s not located on a busy street, so no traffic noise. The only noise on the beach is the sound of crashing waves.

The beds could be more comfortable, but that just motivated me to get up in the morning and go enjoy the beach – where I could take a nap! These are not complaints. The great rate is totally worth giving up a few little perks you might get at other lodging options. The rate at the hotel NEXT DOOR with the same beach assets is THREE TIMES the rate of this motel. I would love to visit again.

    Beach side of motel. Most or all guest rooms do not face the beach, but all of them are extremely close to the beach.

    I thoroughly enjoyed waking up from a nap on this beach to nothing but the sound of crashing waves.

We are a group of 5, two families, one with 6-month-old infant. We were traveling from Miami to Orlando for two-day Universal and Disney Land visit. We knew we will be late around midnight and we called them around 5 p.m. to tell them to hold the rooms we had reserved and we are on our way driving to Orlando. The manager (I guess) attended our call and told that they will hold the room since there is an active reservation. We reached there around 1 and found that they had canceled our reservation and gave the room for walk-in customers. When we asked about our reservation, they said there are no rooms currently available and all rooms are full. I asked the front desk clerk that we have an reservation for 3 nights and to check in again properly. She said we cant help. We were standing in the lobby for one hour with our 6-month-old daughter for no mistake we did. Then, she gave various options like to go and check with another Motel 6 branch which is 10 miles away from the current one or they would give us a gift card where I can use elsewhere some time later. We stood our ground and told them we are not moving away until we have our reserved rooms. She finally came up with one smoking room. We had no choice than to chose that one. It was awful, stinky, and dirty. We 5 had to share a single room for that night. It was 3 in the morning by the time we had one smoking room. It was a horrible experience. Never going back again to Motel 6.

Last year we stayed at M6 and it was a great location. This location looked awesome from the outside, updated rooms, but the stay was not good. The room was clean enough except one of the beds had a urin smell to it that my niece noticed on the 2nd night of our stay, We slept on blankets from our car. The worst part was when we tried to have family time at the pool. We were there with about 3 other family all with children, having a great time when 5 men came into the pol area and proceeded to smoke roll and smoke weed right in front of us. I m not even sure they were guest at the hotel since they didn t even attempt to use a key to get into the pool area, they just walked in since the gate was broken. There were numerous people in and out of the public bathroom again the door was broken. All of us with children immediately left the area and went back to our room. Lesson learned, next year I will spend an additional $100 to stay at a better hotel so I don t have to subject my grandson and nieces to this type of environment. This hotel needs to step up their security, immediately.

    4 Supplements that Alkalize Your Body

    Choosing a healthier lifestyle can be as simple as alkalizing your body, which may sound complicated but it really isn�t.� Basically, acid and alkaline are opposite sides of the biochemical spectrum.� Ideally, your body should be slightly alkaline, but most people s bodies are excessively acidic due to high stress levels, a diet high in meat, sugar consumption, and other acid-forming habits.� While supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle, they can assist you in making your body more alkaline.

    1.� Green Food Powders
    There are many different kinds of green powders, primarily made from spirulina or chlorella algae and the juices of various types of grasses:� barley, wheat, or alfalfa.� These ingredients might seem like a recipe for swamp water but add a teaspoon or two to water, juice diluted with water, or a smoothie and you ll be surprised how good they can taste.� More importantly, they help alkalize your body, thereby promoting greater energy, improved resistance to illness, and less pain.� If you don�t like one type, choose a different kind since there is a significant variation in taste between various green powders.

    2.� Calcium
    To cope with acidity, your body may withdraw calcium from your bones since it is a natural anti-acid mineral.� Like a bank account from which regular withdrawals are made, your bones can become vulnerable to excessive calcium losses.� To help restore the amount of calcium in your body, you can supplement with this critical mineral.� Everyone�s needs are different but they usually range from 800 mg to 1500 mg.

    3. Magnesium
    In the same way that the bones act as a reserve for alkaline calcium, your muscles are reservoirs for the mineral magnesium, which is also alkaline.� Most nutrition experts estimate that 80 percent of people are deficient in this important mineral.� If you�re prone to headaches or muscle tension, you may find that supplementing with magnesium is helpful.� Most people take between 400 to 800 mg of magnesium.

    4.� pH Drops and Powders
    There are special formulations on the market designed specifically for balancing your body chemistry.� And, as with anything, there is a huge variation in the quality of these products so it may take some experimentation to see which one works best for you.� They are usually named pH drops or pH powder or something similar.� Usually they contain a solution of chlorine dioxide or hydrogen peroxide, which releases oxygen in your body, helping to restore biochemical balance.� Sometimes the powders contain a variety of alkaline mineral salts, namely:� potassium, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and iron.� Follow package instructions for use.

    This information is provided for educational purposes only and should not be construed as diagnostic or prescriptive. Always consult your physician prior to starting any new supplements.

    RA and Lung Disease: What You Need to Know

    Besides the joints, the inflammatory process that underlies rheumatoid arthritis (RA) also affects other parts of the body, including lungs, skin, eyes, digestive system, heart and blood vessels. RA-related lung complications are the most common extra-articular ( outside of the joints ) manifestations of RA and include pulmonary nodules (small growths in the lungs); pleural effusion (a buildup of fluid between the lung and chest wall); bronchiectasis (damage to the airways); and interstitial lung disease (ILD).

    In fact, it is estimated that 1 in 10 people with rheumatoid arthritis will develop ILD over the course of their disease, making it as deadly among people with RA as congestive heart failure.

    What Is Interstitial Lung Disease?

    Interstitial lung disease refers to a group of disorders characterized by inflammation and scarring of the lung tissue. In the case of RA-associated ILD, the scarring is caused when the over-active immune system attacks the lungs. When the scarring builds up over time, breathing becomes difficult, and patients may need lung transplants to regain function.

    Risk Factors for Interstitial Lung Disease

    The risk of developing lung disease is eight times higher in people with RA than in the general population. However, most people with RA are not affected. Risk factors for ILD include:

    • Smoking. People with RA who smoke are more likely to develop ILD.

    Higher RA disease activity. High levels of rheumatoid factor (RF) and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptides (antiCCP) antibodies substances that are indicative of more active disease increase the risk for development of ILD.

    Older age at diagnosis. People who are diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis after age 60 are more likely to develop ILD.

    Male Gender. Men with RA have a two-to-three times higher risk of developing ILD than women.

    Treatment with methotrexate and other DMARDs. Several DMARDs, including methotrexate, leflunomide and azathioprine, as well as biologics, particularly tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors, have been associated with RA-ILD, according to a literature review published in the April 2014 issue of Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism. But Dr. Teng Moua, a pulmonologist specializing in ILD at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. says the risk of methotrexate-induced lung injury is less than 1 percent and is reversible once the drug is stopped. According to Dr. Moua, the benefits of methotrexate far outweigh its risks. However, methotrexate is not recommended for people with existing ILD or RA-ILD by the American College of Rheumatology in their 2012 guidelines.

    Diagnosis of Interstitial Lung Disease

    It is challenging to catch ILD early because it doesn t cause any specific symptoms. Once shortness of breath and dry cough develop, the disease has probably already progressed.

    The diagnostic process includes a comprehensive clinical exam, X-rays and lung function tests. If there are risk factors for ILD or abnormal X-ray findings, your doctor will likely perform a high resolution CT.

    Treatment of Interstitial Lung Disease

    Interstitial lung disease is hard to treat and has a high mortality rate. According to a 2010 study published in the journal Arthritis Rheumatism. once ILD was diagnosed, the average survival in patients with RA was 2.6 years.

    People diagnosed with ILD in its early stages can be helped with medication such as corticosteroids and immunosuppressants and put on the waiting list for a lung transplant sooner. However, these treatments don t work for everyone. The best approach is to treat the underlying RA, although ILD may get worse despite well controlled arthritis.

    Future Direction in Interstitial Lung Disease

    Researchers say an important task for the medical community is to understand the mechanisms behind the development of ILD in people with RA. More detailed knowledge of these processes may one day open doors to better treatments.

    Also needed are comprehensive guidelines for screening and diagnosing ILD in at-risk patients so they can be found and treated earlier.

    How Can You Protect Your Lungs?

    Don t smoke. Get flu and pneumonia vaccines (but always check with your doctor before getting any vaccinations). If you re taking immunosuppressant medications for your RA, you may be at a higher risk for illnesses like the flu and pneumonia, which may cause further lung-related complications. Have regular check-ups, so your doctor can monitor your lungs regularly. Tell your doctor if you have shortness of breath or dry cough right away.

    The 12 Stages of Life

    The Twelve Stages of the Human Life Cycle

    Which stage of life is the most important? Some might claim that infancy is the key stage, when a baby’s brain is wide open to new experiences that will influence all the rest of its later life. Others might argue that it’s adolescence or young adulthood, when physical health is at its peak. Many cultures around the world value late adulthood more than any other, arguing that it is at this stage that the human being has finally acquired the wisdom necessary to guide others. Who is right? The truth of the matter is that every stage of life is equally significant and necessary for the welfare of humanity. In my book The Human Odyssey: Navigating the Twelve Stages of Life, I’ve written that each stage of life has its own unique “gift” to contribute to the world. We need to value each one of these gifts if we are to truly support the deepest needs of human life. Here are what I call the twelve gifts of the human life cycle:

    1. Prebirth: Potential – The child who has not yet been born could become anything – a Michaelangelo, a Shakespeare, a Martin Luther King – and thus holds for all of humanity the principle of what we all may yet become in our lives.
    2. Birth: Hope – When a child is born, it instills in its parents and other caregivers a sense of optimism; a sense that this new life may bring something new and special into the world. Hence, the newborn represents the sense of hope that we all nourish inside of ourselves to make the world a better place.
    3. Infancy (Ages 0-3): Vitality – The infant is a vibrant and seemingly unlimited source of energy. Babies thus represent the inner dynamo of humanity, ever fueling the fires of the human life cycle with new channels of psychic power.
    4. Early Childhood (Ages 3-6): Playfulness – When young children play, they recreate the world anew. They take what is and combine it with the what is possible to fashion events that have never been seen before in the history of the world. As such, they embody the principle of innovation and transformation that underlies every single creative act that has occurred in the course of civilization.
    5. Middle Childhood (Ages 6-8): Imagination – In middle childhoood, the sense of an inner subjective self develops for the first time, and this self is alive with images taken in from the outer world, and brought up from the depths of the unconscious. This imagination serves as a source of creative inspiration in later life for artists, writers, scientists, and anyone else who finds their days and nights enriched for having nurtured a deep inner life.
    6. Late Childhood (Ages 9-11): Ingenuity – Older children have acquired a wide range of social and technical skills that enable them to come up with marvelous strategies and inventive solutions for dealing with the increasing pressures that society places on them. This principle of ingenuity lives on in that part of ourselves that ever seeks new ways to solve practical problems and cope with everyday responsibilities.
    7. Adolescence (Ages 12-20): Passion – The biological event of puberty unleashes a powerful set of changes in the adolescent body that reflect themselves in a teenager’s sexual, emotional, cultural, and/or spiritual passion. Adolescence passion thus represents a significant touchstone for anyone who is seeking to reconnect with their deepest inner zeal for life.
    8. Early Adulthood (Ages 20-35): Enterprise – It takes enterprise for young adults to accomplish their many responsibilities, including finding a home and mate, establishing a family or circle of friends, and/or getting a good job. This principle of enterprise thus serves us at any stage of life when we need to go out into the world and make our mark.
    9. Midlife (Ages 35-50): Contemplation – After many years in young adulthood of following society’s scripts for creating a life, people in midlife often take a break from worldly responsibilities to reflect upon the deeper meaning of their lives, the better to forge ahead with new understanding. This element of contemplation represents an important resource that we can all draw upon to deepen and enrich our lives at any age.
    10. Mature Adulthood (Ages 50-80): Benevolence – Those in mature adulthood have raised families, established themselves in their work life, and become contributors to the betterment of society through volunteerism, mentorships, and other forms of philanthropy. All of humanity benefits from their benevolence. Moreover, we all can learn from their example to give more of ourselves to others.
    11. Late Adulthood (Age 80+): Wisdom – Those with long lives have acquired a rich repository of experiences that they can use to help guide others. Elders thus represent the source of wisdom that exists in each of us, helping us to avoid the mistakes of the past while reaping the benefits of life’s lessons.
    12. Death Dying: Life – Those in our lives who are dying, or who have died, teach us about the value of living. They remind us not to take our lives for granted, but to live each moment of life to its fullest, and to remember that our own small lives form of a part of a greater whole.

    Since each stage of life has its own unique gift to give to humanity, we need to do whatever we can to support each stage, and to protect each stage from attempts to suppress its individual contribution to the human life cycle. Thus, we need to be wary, for example, of attempts to thwart a young child’s need to play through the establishment high-pressure formal academic preschools. We should protect the wisdom of aged from elder abuse. We need to do what we can to help our adolescents at risk. We need to advocate for prenatal education and services for poor mothers, and support safe and healthy birthing methods in third world countries. We ought to take the same attitude toward nurturing the human life cycle as we do toward saving the environment from global warming and industrial pollutants. For by supporting each stage of the human life cycle, we will help to ensure that all of its members are given care and helped to blossom to their fullest degree.

    Key Colony Beach Motel

    This was a really great place to stay for 3 days! Amazing beach/water access for a low cost per night.

    You can roam next store and get a drink to bring to over.

    In the middle of the keys so great central point.

    Rooms are what they are. You are at a motel for $111/night. Nothing fancy but decent.

    My only 1 negative- there was carpet in Our room which is not great for a sandy beach motel. I woke up with some bites on my leg that didn t ever itch (meaning they weren t misquotes ) and when we left, my boyfriend and I had little red bites all over our feet. Hard to say if it was the hotel, beach or whatever. But just a warning.

    The motel, view from the water

    The beach at key colony beach motel

    Stay away from this dump.sunday morning the manager,or the person in charge was drunk. 9:00 am at work drunk. He was ao drunk he had children checking people in and out. It was funny, but also very sad, The owners should be notified.The room was full of cockroaches
    realy disgusting.The problem with the small cockroaches is
    you sometimes take them back home with you.

    Be carefull jumping in the water

    I will give 5 stars because our view from our ocean front room is amazing and the beach is nice and the pool. Its a very laid back place to stay and its not overly crowded. We are here for 7 nights and we re half way through our trip. Yes, the motel needs a major renovation and upgrades but its an older motel. Don t stay here if you re too picky with everything being brand new. This isnt something that bothers us. It is really clean and has NO bugs and that is what we look for. The private beach is nice so that we dont have to drive anywhere. You are close to everything and will be able to either walk or drive to a few different places to eat in key colony.

    View from our room window.

    I really enjoyed our stay. Clean room, basic amenities, and hasn t been updated. I really enjoyed that our bathroom still had the original curved tiles from its past- love it when those things can be preserved. Small private beachfront with ample seating. Liquor store next door. Quiet street. Amazing rate- we paid $144 after all taxes. Would stay again!

    Our original bathroom. Love the tiles! Very clean.

    LOVED this motel. A little slice of heaven. The rate was only $100 for a motel room just steps away from a private beach for motel guests. ANY room you get is such a very short walk to the beach and wonderful swimming pool. If you forget something in your room, no problem! You can pop back to your room in 15 seconds.

    There are ample beachside lounge adirondack chairs and tiki huts for shade with tables chairs under them. The motel was clean, and the staff is friendly. It s not located on a busy street, so no traffic noise. The only noise on the beach is the sound of crashing waves.

    Full disclosure, there are no frills. Bring your own beach towel shampoo, and there s just plain coffee available in the lobby. The beds could be more comfortable, but that just motivated me to get up in the morning and go enjoy the beach – where I could take a nap! These are not complaints.
