Healthy living: Dealing With Heel Pain

Dealing with Heel Pain. I have heal pain. When it is acting up it keeps me from my walking exercises. It has forced me to leave my 2nd job at Advanced Auto Parts. If you have experienced it you know what I am talking about. When you get up from a resting position it hurts. And getting up during the night or in the morning can be excruciating. This is a condition called “Plantar Fasciitis” In my case once I found a treatment it was easy and immediate relief from the pain.

Gardening Tips: Catching Rain Water

Every year the spring rains come and turn everyone’s yards into muddy messes. Everyone curses the spring rains for the mess they create. I look at them like a shower after a long hard day. Renewed life, the clean smell, the songs of the birds and the twitter of the tree frogs after a spring rain are enough of a comparison to how I feel after a shower to be dismissed. Our grandparents looked at the spring rains as a chance to fill the ponds recharge the wells and top off the cisterns.

The Frugal Secret!

Nanny didn’t waste money but she wasn’t afraid to spend it either. She would spend money on big hams, or that huge turkey. She knew The Frugal Secret!  Nanny was born during the years leading to the great depression. She had seen her fair share of hard times. It showed in how she cooked. She was an old time cook. The classic home maker that can walk into a bare kitchen and perform some kind of grandmother Voodoo that created a dinner from empty refrigerator and bare pantry shelves

SoFrit Chicken Gizzards & Harts in Tomato Pepper sauce

Have I got a treat of a recipe for your crock pot today. Slow cooker Sofrit “Chicken Gizzards & Harts In a Tomato Pepper Sauce”. I went to the Google’s to see what the Italian translation for Chicken Gizzards was and found out that my conglomeration was a recipe. I had never heard of SoFrit. Oh by the way, the Italian translation for chicken gizzards is “Ventriglio Di Pollo”. Olives-N-Okra talk about Sofrit, or chicken gizzards & hearts in hot sauce being and old Italian dish common in Rhode Island. My ingredients are so close that I am calling my dish SoFrit. Instead of Ventriglio Di Pollo or Italian Chicken Gizzards.

For a long time now I have received Letters from a discontinued Insurance policy for more supporting information on a claim I submitted.  American Fidelity Flex is the insurance company my work let them set up a Flexible spending account for the employee’s medical needs and co-pays. It works like this I let American Fidelity Flex Debit $50.00 a paycheck and the insurance company gave me a debit card with $1000.00 on it I can spend on any approved medical needs like co-pays, deductibles on my medicine and the like. I quit the program because last year I didn’t spend $560. Of my balance and American Fidelity Flex sent it back to my employer and they kept it. And for the last 3 years I have been trying my best to get them program changed from the flexible spending account. To a Medical savings account in a medical savings account you can roll over unspent balances for use at a later time. If everyone had a Medical Savings Account Imagine the Negotiating power you would have as a Medical Consumer.
