Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Computer Wrestling

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on October 25, 2011 ][ In Uncategorized ]

Warning:  Today’s post will be a bit odd.  Wrestling with computers or any type of technology should count as exercise.  I have just spent the last hour and a half trying to upload the Wellsphere badge (explanation to follow) to my blog.  Oh, the instructions say that it is easy, even if you are not technologically savvy but I beg to differ.  I feel more tired now than I do after an average workout and I haven’t even reaped the benefits of the nice calm feeling I get after exercising.  I am so irritable now I could spit nails.  Along with the badge, I was trying to upload a photo to go with it but that didn’t work so well either.

As for those of you who are snickering right now, thinking how stupid could I be, I need to catch up to the 21st. century, etc., you can stop right now.  I have seen plenty of you stumped by your iPhone, dragging your computers into the “docs” to be fixed and on the verge of a melt down too.  The truth is most technology is too complex for what the average person really needs or wants and makes perfect sense only to the designer.  Maybe not even then.  So, those of you who want to consider computer wrestling a sport, type a smiley face.  :)

Wellsphere is a web page devoted to helping readers connect with health information on a variety of topics.  I was honored to be asked to join this page, especially as I didn’t seek them out.  I am always looking for ways to connect to others and encourage good health on the home front, where good health begins.  Around the same time, I also received an email from nursing schools.net, a web page that serves as an online guide to nursing careers.  I was very honored to be included in the article “50 Best Blogs For Physiology Students”, especially since all the other blogs under cardiology were written by physicians.

I sometimes feel like I am talking in an empty room as I know personal health isn’t usually viewed as an interesting topic until something goes wrong.  I just like being here for those who are interested in taking better care of themselves and want some support along the way.   Despite all my wishes, there is no magic wand to wave or words to say to ensure perfect health.  You know that.  Anyway, I’m off to manage my high stress level by exercising.  I know I’ll feel better after I’ve sweated.
