Grandma Hears Again

Ever since grandma started getting old it seems that her hearing is getting worse. We have been trying to get her to buy a hearing aid. She was always against it stating that they were big ugly things. But as time went on she began to realize that she was missing out on a lot of conversations because she could not hear clearly and she was often mistaking the wrong words. So we started shopping. We showed her pictures of all the different kinds of hearing aids Knutsford until we found one that she really liked. We took her to the doctor who helped us with ordering it. Now she thinks she is styling. But some of us wish we had never bought the hearing aid as she can now hear conversations going on in the other room.


Slug Patrol

After we moved into our new home, we realized the concrete in front of the porch was very slippery when it would rain. One of the things we found to put on it was rock salt. We knew this was for ice and snow, but it worked wonders after rain as well. Only a small amount was needed to provide the traction to walk on the sidewalk. One day, we poured salt on the concrete and noticed there were slugs nearby. The slugs crawled toward the salt and stopped. Watching them, we didn’t know what they were trying to do, but it was soon apparent they did not like the substance being there. All of a sudden, the slugs crawled over the salt and started shriveling into small masses. It seems there is another use for the popular item.


Sad Statistics

A recent survey has shown that the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is more likely to be put to sleep (PTS) by local authorities than any other breed throughout the UK.

Anyone who has ever been involved with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue will tell you just how desperate the plight of this wonderful breed has become. Once renowned and loved for being the ‘Nanny dog’ the Staffordshire Bull Terrier has sadly become a victim of its own success and is now the most abandoned breed of dog in the UK.

It is estimated that 7 out of 10 dogs in council pounds throughout the UK are bull breeds, the majority of which are Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The fact that they have been so over-bred has significantly contributed to the high numbers of dogs that find themselves handed into dog pounds or picked up on the streets. 

What is also incredibly sad is the fact that statistics show that so many of these unwanted Staffordshire Bull Terriers are less than one year old before they are dumped by their irresponsible and disrespectful owners.


Good photos on big day

I was glad that I got the opportinity to order a photographer for my wedding. The professional was able to take many good pictures of the big day from the ceremony to the reception, and everything in between. In between the time of the ceremony and reception, he took us around the city. He took photos every few minutes or so, but it allowed us to have options of the big day. Since we got married in Virginia Beach, he was able to get many good photos of us by the boardwalk. I reall enjoyed my wedding, and I’m glad that he did a good job capturing the wedding photos. The cost of the photos was worth it in the long run. You should go with modellenfotografie for your photo needs!


Fighting obesity; Mark’s story

Mark was always such a kind hearted person. and so helpful in so many ways. Regardless of if he was trying to help someone with their homework or if he was giving someone a ride to school, Mark always had a heart for other. Yet, the problem with Mark though is that he also had a real appetite for life. At his current weight, he weighs 425 pounds of pure, solid, beef. Now, of course you cannot blame him, because over the years, Mark had just one thing after the other happen to him.

ALso, he tried everything to lose the weight. He tried acupuncture Manchester, fifteen different gyms, weight loss pills, weight loss programs, and more. Still, nothing seemed to work when it came to Mark and his weight loss efforts. Thus, with one alternative left, he’s going for the big one. He’s going to try diet and exercise.
