Several years ago, America discovered that a number of men suffered with a condition known as "Erectile Dysfunction (ED)". Without going into minute detail, ED is simply the restriction of blood flow into the penis at a time when this blood flow is, well, desired. For those lucky enough to live in a world untouched by mass marketing, it turns out that a bunch of men can’t get it up. No word on whether the severity of the problem is equally born by the significant others of those afflicted. It’s not the kind of thing most men would willingly tell their friends. Besides, nothing would take the... Read More
My eyes are nothing more than faucets
Leaking every now and then
While painting a thin line of sadness
Down my colorless, pale cheeks.
I feel depression crawl through my thin skin
And nibble away my happiness
Like a hungry cockroach eating through wood.
My usual smile is too heavy
And as a result it falls into a frown.
Stress is my yoke,
and I a weak ox.
The voices in my head
Are as loud as coyotes
At the blackest hour of night
Howling to be heard.
My heart once a clown
Is now... Read More

A pedometer is a small, inexpensive device that is great for motivating you to get out and about. It is perfect for those who procrastinate when it comes to exercise. The great thing that I have found when using a pedometer is that it makes me want to move more and I actually find that I am challenging myself to do more each day.
What is a pedometer?

Recently I saw an article about germs. People that are germo-phobes do not shake hands. I don't blame them, I have seen you walk out of the bathroom without washing your hands, and you know who you are . Some hygeine practices are just non-existant and poorly done by most people. People have become lax about germs and therefore spreading them abundantly and extensively.
Take money for instance, you find a coin or bill on the floor, do you pick it up, put it in your pocket, kiss it, pass it around, hand it to a homeless person on the street, snort some coke with it, pick up a dead... Read More
Calcium and phosphorus work together as a team in the body. When there is more of one, there is more of the other. They both have very important roles in the body in the blood and in the bones. The kidneys are the only thing in the body that gets phosphorus out of the blood. When the kidneys do not work everything you eat that has phosphorus in it keeps staying in the blood. The phosphorus is high in the blood. The kidneys also have the role of releasing an enzyme to activate vitamin D which in turn helps the calcium do its work. When the phosphorus builds up the in the blood, calcium also... Read More
