Today’s Saturday Social Question:

Are you a better talker or a listener?

My Answer:

I think I am both. But I talk so much sometimes that I feel I am more of a talker. I do listen. But I feel like talking so much that the husband can never say anything at all. Hahaha. But most of my real friends would call for advise or just talk about anything...I missed them!

Kava for your Health

There are so many kinds of herbal medicines now a days. Some aren't that effective as they claim. I knew about this medicines way back from my grannies. I remember my Grandpa who had a problem of rheumatism. They looked for herbal medicines to help him but still it didn't do such thing instead worsen the problem. God help his soul! But when I saw this kava which actually will help any regularities. I think, I will recommend this to my Grandma which is also having the same problem. I’ve read that when you used this, you will experience some kind of euphoria characterized by being so alive! You will feel lively speech and an increased sensitivity to sound. Prevent anxiety because it will relax muscle tension, act as local anesthetic, and for more than a century it is used as a treatment for gout, bronchial congestion and rheumatism.

Toy Safety

• Is it suited to your child’s developmental level? Most toys bear a “recommended age” sticker, which should be taken as a starting point in the selection process. Be realistic about your child’s abilities and level of maturity when choosing an age-appropriate toy. Toys that have projectiles, for example, are never suitable for a child under age 4 — and even some 6-year-olds aren’t mature enough to handle them. Likewise, if your 3-year old still puts everything into his mouth, continue to steer clear of toys and games with small parts and pieces.

• Think big. Until your child turns 3, toy parts should be bigger than his mouth to avoid the possibility of choking. To determine whether a toy poses a choking risk, try fitting it through a toilet paper roll. If a toy or part of a toy can fit inside the cylinder, it’s not safe.

• Is the toy too heavy? Could your baby be harmed if it fell on him? If so, pass.

• Look for toys that are well put together. Make sure tails are securely sewn, seams of stuffed animals are reinforced, and paint is not peeling. Stuffed animals should also be free of buttons, yarn, ribbons, and anything else your child could yank off and put in his mouth.

• Is your child physically ready for this toy? For example, parents of older kids may buy a bike one size too big so as not to have to buy a new bike the next year. This tactic can lead to serious injury if a child doesn’t have the physical skills to control the bigger bike.

• Is the toy in good condition? Used toys passed down from older relatives or siblings or bought at yard sales can be worn or frayed, which can be sometimes pose a danger. Examine all new or used toys for buttons, batteries, ribbons, eyes, beads, and plastic appendages that could easily be chewed or snapped off.

• Does the toy have a string or cord longer than 12 inches? A cord can too easily be wrapped around a young child’s neck, causing strangulation. Once your child can climb up on his hands and knees, remove crib gyms and hanging mobiles from his crib. Be particularly vigilant about older toys. For example, an older model of a popular play kitchen may have a phone attached with a potentially deadly cord, while the latest model of the same kitchen has the more current and safer cordless phone.

• Does the toy use small magnets? In 2007, the CPSC named magnets the #1 hidden home hazard. Small, powerful magnets are often used in toys, and may fall out of the toy and be swallowed by a child. Two or more swallowed magnets (or a magnet and a metal object) can be attracted to each other through intestinal walls, causing twisting and pinching of the intestines, holes, blockages, infection, and worse if not discovered and treated promptly. As of August 2007, one death and 86 injuries from magnets had been reported to the CPSC, and 8 million magnetic toys had been recalled. The agency recommends keeping toys with magnets away from kids under 6 years old.

Have a great weekend ahead everyone!

Health Equipments

Hypertension problem, high sugar problem and the like, runs in the family of my in-laws. Would you believe that my Dad in-law had 5 times high blood pressure stroke? The last 2 were the major stroke that really changed his life. He went through a lot of operations but still living the life. I admire his courage and faith. So, every time I hear about medical equipment stuff. I remember my In-laws. Their house is full of those helpful equipments. Their personal nurse even told me that she can have a small clinic out of the stuff they got:) They needed those items though! Because she said it is better that they have those because you never know what the future holds..It’s better to be safe and be sorry!

I am also learning how to trade and it’s a good thing if I know since the stocks hubby bought a decade ago is getting stronger.

This site helps you understand some information on how to trade wisely and properly. You can find, compare and analyze the important options you have. I am still not sure if I really want to learn. But with all this information you might as well check out!
