Financial Breakthrough

My prayer is to express full financial freedom for myself and my family immediately. I pray that all financial pressures are removed and negative stress is eliminated from my mind and my spouse’s mind. I pray for peace and harmony in my life, my world, and my affairs. I pray this also for the entire universe. Thank you God. So it is!

I continue to work and move forward, even as things appear to be in opposition of me. I fill my mind and heart with love and focus only on the good.

Excessive Use of Biotin Supplements May Cause Severe Side Effects


When I recently opened what I thought to be my new bottle of Mason Hair vitamin supplement, I noticed I had pills instead of capsules. I checked the label and realized that I had picked up a bottle of Mason’s Biotin supplements by mistake. The two products had been side by side on the store shelf. I had looked at one and inadvertently picked up the other.

Although I could not return the opened container, my purchase was not in vain. Biotin happens to be one of the ingredients in the hair supplement, I had meant to buy. Of all the vitamin and mineral supplements I have tried over the years, biotin is the one that comes with the most warnings, regarding side effects from excessive use.

I assume, this is because women become over zealous when trying to grow their hair, and mistakenly believe that increasing intake of the supplements, will help their hair grow faster.This however is not the case,as some women have fund out the hard way.

Tests on lab rats who were give high dosages of biotin, showed that it caused miscarriage. There has not been an conclusive evidence to date, that this also happens in women. This did bring to mind however, a young lady I know, who had a miscarriage, a few years ago. She had talked about utilizing hair vitamins, around the time she found out she was expecting. Now I wonder if the two were connected

Biotin deficiency is rare, because most people obtain enough of the nutrient in their diet. Foods that are rich in this nutrient include: oatmeal, peanuts, bananas and organ meats. Biotin, which is also known as Vitamin B7, is water soluble, and is necessary for healthy hair, skin and nails. A lack of biotin would show up in brittle nails and lackluster hair.

Based on Internet blogs, biotin overdose seems to be common, among women trying to grow their hair. Those who take too much of this supplement may experience chest pain, nausea, and swelling in the face and throat area. The major side effect that is being reported however, is severe acne outbreaks which clear up once the supplement is no longer being taken.

Biotin supplements that are utilized, based on the instructions on the packaging seem to yield positive results, regarding hair growth, without side effects.This is why it is always important to take supplements as outlined in the recommended dosage on the packaging.

I Feel Their Pain: It’s Like It’s Happening to Me, Maybe Worse

Yesterday Mack took all three kids for haircuts and then milkshakes as a treat for being good boys at the barber (and because Mack has a secret weakness for chocolate malted), then as we were walking past the park, Mack’s oldest son spotted his two best friends, J and A, playing ball hockey.

“Hey, wait up, guys, I want to play, too!” Mack’s oldest called out. “I’ll just run home and grab my stick!”

“Actually, we’ve gotta go in like two minutes, at three,” J responded.

“Where you guys going?” Mack’s oldest (he’s 11) called back.

“We’re going to the soccer game.”

Betrayal! They were going together, and hadn’t even invited him.

Mack felt his pain. Back at home, he was in tears.

I know how he feels. I feel his pain, maybe even worse than he does.

It’s a horrible feeling, being excluded, Mack knows. “Hey, Mack, you coming to that great bash at X’s Friday night?”

“X is having a party?”

I wish I knew how to alleviate this pain, but I suppose it is no less than The Pain of Human Existence. There will always be cool people who avoid you. And there will always be people who avoid you. It is, as one of Mack Daddy’s favorite authors, L. Rust Hills, might say, an LCT: Life’s Cruel Truths.

Mack made frantic efforts to try to distract his oldest from the pain of knowing his two best friends were doing this great thing he wasn’t invited to. I took him, and his two brothers, to the park to play Frisbee.

Unfortunately, where we were playing Frisbee, we could hear the cheers of the crowd watching the soccer game, at the stadium.

I thought Nick would freak out, hearing those cheers and thinking what a good time his friends were having.

But in the end it was a sort of affirming experience. Because we had fun, playing Frisbee (and soccer). And that made Mack Daddy happy. He wound up saying he had a “great time.”

And I realized: I can still entertain him. I haven’t lost him completely to his peers yet.

And it’s true, you know. However much you hate to think it, or believe it, friends can be fickle. Family’s, like, fuhgedaboudit.

Always there for you. And on a Saturday where friends disappointed, Mack Daddy was only too happy to step in and fill the void.

A Review as below:

I feel your pain. When my son was in grade 4 he was invited to his first mixed party where the girls, unknown to the boys, planned to refuse to dance with a couple of the little men, ‘for fun’ to see what would happen. Yep, not only did they carry out their little plan they told everyone about it later. He was in tears when he told us about it later that night. He never danced again outside of fooling around at home until his wedding.

I wonder about them, the four boys who, at school, held him down and kicked him so badly he had to stay in bed for a week, his teacher, Leanne Doherty, who asked my little guy what he’d done to make them assault him. He’s forgotten 99% of it but it comes back to haunt a parent from time to time.

My Suzanne Somers Diet Review


The Suzanne Somers Diet is named after a famous TV personality, Suzanne Somers. The diet was coined the name “Somersizing”, and was created by Suzanne Somers herself. Such diet was outlined on several of Somers’ books and the concept is basically about reducing carbohydrate intake and emphasized the importance of food combining. Suzanne has written a total of four books for the diet plan. The latest book is called the “Fast and Easy” diet, and it retails to $24.95 each. She has written a collection of recipe books, and each costs around $16.95 each. If you are looking for the best plan to help you lose weight, then you better try this diet. First let me give you a warm welcome. I started this article because like a lot of women, I felt powerless to maintain my weight and the look that I wanted to see in the mirror. For as long as I know, I’ve been on a constant mission to find a solution to my weight problem and only just recently was I able to reclaim my confidence through using the plan. After being thrilled by the results I obtained using the program, I decided to start up this site to educate others on what they can expect to see in terms of results out of using the plan. Also what they can do to get it at the cheapest price and secondly avoid the pointless adventure of switching from diet plan to diet plan, oh yes never again will I be in that position! So if you’ve reached this, the page of my site, you’ll be able to find out exactly what you need to know from the areas below:

My Personal Review

I took a whole bunch of time to write up what I believe to be a thorough review of the Suzanne Somers diet that covers all sides of how it works to guide you in losing and maintaining a comfortable weight, plus I talk about how to get it at the cheapest price and with a money back guarantee at the same time. Where To Buy (Discounts, Special Offers and More) You can try it by buying her book called “Sexy Forever”. You can find it on Amazon and other online book stores for a fairly low price. If You Were Ever Going to Try this weight loss program, Now Is the Time Right now there’s a major deal going on with the online version of this program. The online plan is the BEST thing that I have done for myself in years. And you can’t beat the huge promotion going on right now, I think the reason is because they are trying to boost their brand and stand out amongst the already overcrowded weight loss industry. Essentially for a limited time they’re giving you dirt cheap access to the Sexy Forever diet plan just to get their name out there. However I won’t be surprised if the price goes up, so I would recommend you seize this opportunity to try this program right now.
