New Health Care In Action!

I find it very interesting that we are now being told (by a government task force) that most women do not need mammograms every year and that breast self-exams do no good! We have either been lied to all these years by The American Cancer Society and other agencies or we are now being prepared for the "new health care" guidelines. Personally, as a female, I am going to continue to listen to my doctor and the American Cancer Society.

It seems that breast cancer specialists are denouncing the new recommendations and warning that they could undermine detecting and treating cancer early. Some of us know women who acquired cancer prior to age 40 and it was detected early due to the annual screenings.

The government task force is very defensive about its new recommendations, as reported in the Chicago Tribune: "No one is saying that women should not be screened in their 40s," said Dr. Diana Petitti, vice chair of the task force. "We're saying there needs to be a discussion between women and their doctors."

Good heavens, don't they think we ever talk to our doctors? How belittling to us and to the medical profession.

Best 100 Online Shopping


Shopping and Buying Online with the Best 100 Sites.

I love shopping malls. I like the antique malls where you go in and there are 50 different stores in one building. I love to go to the mall, get a drink and watch people. But, I don't like the excessive walking, especially around the holidays. So, I feel just like I have died and gone to Heaven when I first became acquainted with online shopping. I love searching for items and then hopefully getting a discount. Not having to get in my car and fight the traffic is a big plus for me. The more pictures and information online stores have, the better.

I like to be able to "just about" touch the item online. I look for any guarantees; for a return policy and if I can I will use PayPal. I love PayPal. It is so easy to use and I feel more secure financially when using my account and doing shopping through one location. If it is not clear as to the details of the product I want and I cannot get more information from the site, I don't buy.

So, I recommend you give it a try. And when shopping online, don't forget about your creative juices. Don't have any? That is hard to believe. I recommend you stop by and visit Squidoo. Look around and then join. It's free. I am sure you have something to say; maybe something to share. What about that special craft project that you have been working on and finally completed. Maybe someone else wants to know how to finish theirs. Meantime, check out my site and happy shopping!

THIS IS WHO I AM

My photo
Utah, United States
I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.

POLITICAL WATCH


JULY 4 - Time For Tea


The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.

All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
