I found this online website Permanent eye makeup that you simply must look into.

You can go in and read the testimonials of so many happy clients and I went through their site and looked at the before and after pictures and I was sold on the idea right away.

My Therapy Journal

People love to journal their experiences in life and most on a daily basis. This is the website To visit, please click here > that has designed just such a journal online that everyone will like. The Personal Progress Graph is new and contains a pre-set or customized set of questions for the individual. You can measure your own sentiments and see what progress you are making in life if that is your goal. You can even customize it to fit your own needs. My son-in-laws father kept a daily journal of everything that happened, right down to the temperature of the weather that day and the kind of weather they were having. When he passed away, they found huge piles of these daily journals he had kept for many years. How convenient it is now to have it on the computer. You can even go in and add and change entries as you go along. There is a low monthly payment which can even be less if you choose to sign up for a year in advance. You can even have a 14-day free trial to be sure this is what you want to do. This user-friendly graph shows you your progress and you can choose your own categories to measure by. I tried keeping a journal on the calendar for about a year and I would forget to write down some things and then go back and try to remember what I had forgotten. I thought it might be a good idea for the children to read when they came to visit to see what had been going on at our home. But it got boring and I finally quit. I am on the computer daily and this new Therapy Journal seems to me to be just what I need because I won't forget to keep it up. I can set new goals and see how I am doing using the graph. It's a great idea. I bet everyone would love it if they got started. Just check into their website and read all about it.

I am being paid for this post.

I guess our biggest worry when working on the computer is the safety and security of all we put into it. Hackers are out there of course, and it seems they get smarter all the time. So we put virus protection onto our computers and keep them updated and hope they won't get through them. Sometimes it takes more than one security feature to keep your computer information safe and it gets expensive. Now there is an online website NOD32 that would like to provide a "one product protects all". But they realize there are many facets to having complete security for your computer and they feel they have come up with the best Computer Security Software you can get. They have spent a lot of research and testing to come up with this. But customers find it saves them both money and time. They provide "self service" computer security to you with outstanding customer support.

Out-of-Body Experience Recreated

Now this sounds interesting and caught my attention. It seems experts have found a way to trigger an out-of-body experience in volunteers. The experiments are described in the Science journal, and offer a scientific explanation for a phenomenon experienced by one in 10 people. Two teams used virtual reality goggles to con the brain into thinking the body was located elsewhere. The visual illusion plus the feel of their real bodies being touched made volunteers sense that they had moved outside their physical bodies. Strange, huh?

New Blood Pressure Control Found

UK scientists say they have discovered a new way to regulate blood pressure, offering hopes of new drugs to combat strokes and heart attacks. One in four adults has high blood pressure and although powerful drugs are already available, few manage to achieve target blood pressure levels. The pathway found in a study by King's College London, involves a process called oxidation. Until now, oxidation has largely been linked with harm rather than good. This will bear watching.

High Definition Video

Cinematography is big business. When they are on the job, they collect a great deal of extra footage. What do they do with it? Now, high definition video has the solution. They gather all this extra footage together and make it available for sale. You can order it over the internet and have it delivered to you if you are in the market for professional quality High Definition footage. There is a large market of buyers out there from advertising agencies, documentary producers, to cinema studios. By being able to buy this footage, in this way, professional cinematographers can generate new revenue without all the extra hard work. This company sets the prices and contributors of the film clips receive 5o% of the net profits from the sale of their clips and they get paid monthly. It is a win win situation for them.

Whirlpool Ranges

I have had it! I need a new stove really bad. But now there are so many new kinds on the market, I don't know where to start looking. My sister says Whirlpool is the best brand these days and I would be very happy with a Whirlpool range. But then I didn't know where to begin looking. With the price of gas today, I could go through a lot of gas driving from store to store comparing prices. I had a bright idea, though, to get on the internet and see what I could find there first. Luckily I ran across Whirlpool Ranges on the internet and found the greatest search engine. They have over 275 million pages of relevant search and I could find product information in over 40,000 cities. It only took me minutes to locate a distributor right nearby and I got right over there and bought my new range.

Actress Lindsay Lohan Jailed for One Day

Isn't that a hoot? What kind of deal is this? Lindsay Lohan must spend one day in jail after pleading guilty to drunk driving and drug charges as part of a plea bargain. She was put on three years probation and must do community service and complete a drug treatment program. Lohan's seven charges included driving while over the alcohol limit and being under the influence of cocaine. She crashed her car in Los Angeles in May and was arrested again in July after being stopped by police. You know if it had been you or me, they would have thrown the book at us.


One thing about it, I don't have a whole lot of money to invest. Because I don't have a lot to invest, I better make sure I invest in the right place. The stock market is up and down like a yoyo and it gets pretty confusing for someone who isn't experienced in the investment market. But a friend of mine sat down with me the other day and told me about investing in gold and how safe it is. Now that sounded right up my alley and just the thing I should do. He also put me onto this website gold where I could invest in gold and they would provide me with a safe place to keep it too. I thought that this sounded just like what I was looking for so I looked into it. Sure enough, I could get gold coins or ingots and they would arrange an independent bank or depository to keep it safe for me. I am going to do it right away

Cataract Surgery

We found out today that my husband will need cataract surgery on his left eye the end of September. Then they wait about 2-3 weeks to be sure that eye is healed and they will do the surgery on the other eye. He will have great vision for the first time in many years. It is a wonder what they can do. They take out your old eye lens and put in another and your vision is usually 20-20. He will have to get different glasses because they still want you to wear glasses, I think for reading. We live in a great era.

Sex, Violence, Language

What happened to the clean family shows on TV? It's almost impossible to let your kids watch anything anymore. Violence has become the norm and blood and guts are everywhere. We need some good shows with education in manners, treatment of adults and minding their parents for kids to grow up into decent adults. And I believe all the shows will still be good if you just cut out the swearing and vulgar talk. What do you think? It's getting so you have to be afraid to walk the streets with young people as you don't know what they will do next and they seem to have no conscience.

Oil futures settled at a record high above $78 on expectations that crude inventories fell last week and reports of new violence in Nigeria. Nigeria is a large oil producer and key supplier to the U.S. Investors believe today's inventory report by the Energy Department's Energy Information Administration will show that refiners drew down oil inventories as they continued to increase gasoline production last week.

General Motors Corp.

General Motors Corporation ran its string of profitable quarters to three on Tuesday, July 31, when it announced second quarter net income of $891 million that came largely from overseas operations. The earnings growth in Europe, Latin America, Asia and other areas eclipsed lingering problems in North America. I hope they continue to make good products as they make good cars too.

Rupert Murdoch Buys The Wall Street Journal

Rupert Murdoch has bought the Wall Street Journal. I wonder what kind of difference that is going to make in the paper? He appeared to be on the verge of clinching a deal to buy Dow Jones & Co., reportedly lining up sufficient support to take over stewardship of The Wall Street Journal Publisher from the family that has controlled it for more than a century. And he finally got it. This could be quite a change, maybe.

Plans for Execution Proceed

A Georgia man is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on July 17 for killing a police officer in 1989. Although the case has withered in recent years as most of the key witnesses at his trial have recanted and in some cases said they lied under pressure from police, he will still be executed. I am in favor of the death penalty and a speedy trial and not dragging these things out for years and years and appeal after appeal.
