One of the most common ways to landscape around trees and plants in the yard is to add a color mulch to the ground. The problem that this presents is that over time the sun quickly fades the mulch and leaves it looking weathered and old. Severe wind storm can cause the mulch to be blown around the yard too. One of the better alternatives to mulch is pea gravel.
This unique tiny stone can easily change the entire look of your yard. They are perfect in any weather condition because not only will they not move no mater how windy the conditions, they will never fade from the sunlight either. They allow rain to drain right through them to the soil beneath, and will not cause flooded areas like areas of dirt will. The gravel can be placed around trees, bushes, gardens, and can even be used to create a small area for chairs and a table to be placed.
The past few months have been equivalent to living in hell. Where do J begin, in October I had to take a pay-cut on my job, in November my boyfriend left me, and in December (New Years Eve) I got in a car accident, but I have plenty to be thankful for, I only walked away with a sprained ankle. After a trip to the doctor I went home and took my meds, now I here at a Manchester acupuncture office trying get rid of this pain in my ankle. As I sit here waiting to for the receptionist to call my name, I can only think about how I could have died, the lady sitting next to me told me her cousin died in a car accident on New Years Eve.
Medical science hasn’t gone as far as declaring an end to old age. But they do say that the problems of aging are separate and manageable or treatable conditions. For me incontinence pads make my treatable problem more manageable.
Like most women, I experienced some mild stress incontinence when I was younger. For a little leakage now and then there are many products on the market. Lots of sizes of pads are available. But as I got older I had more serious issues particularly after surgery.
We were all relieved when I left the hospital after a bad winter fall. I was able to stay with my daughter’s family. But to my horror, the pain medication left me too groggy to get to the bathroom in time. Often, I couldn’t even ask for the bed pan.
My embarrassment faded when my daughter bought disposable bed pads for incontinent patients.
After I finished getting NCR books, I was working the day shift out of San Marcos when the phone rang.
It was Adrienne. Yeah, Adrienne. Cool glass of water out of Ventura.
Adrienne. See. She got with Spence and they got themselves a little ole’ radio show. KVTA-AM1520. Ventura’s only drive-time talk news music and…
Well, you know the drill.
Adrienne and Spence wanted Ike. Yeah. Ike. Ike Turner. You know Ike. Father of rock and roll. Had a little thing with Tina. Big guy with a big bass.
They wanted Ike to spice up the deal. Shake, rattle and roll some cages. Spill the beans. Tell it like it is.
Now, me. I seen Ike. Seen him around town, don’t you know. At the Panda Gardens. The Power Surge. Going down San Marcos Boulevard. East and West. But you know what. Hadn’t seen Ike for a dog’s age.
My friend just started modellen fotografie and she has seemingly had her nose in the air since she started. It is funny how when people get a sudden boost in their ego, they also get an even larger boost in their attitude towards others. I have tried numerous times to contact her about our weekly night out, but apparently she has bigger and better plans with the camera. Although I am happy that she is accomplishing her life long dream, I am also rather angry that she is turning her cheek to me. I never thought she would end up as rude as she has, but I guess nothing in life goes as planned. I am just hoping that she will realize how great our friendship is, sooner rather than later.
Some parents, myself included, worry about allowing our kids outside to play alone. Even playing in the back garden, if you don’t have a wall or screen your kids can attract the attention of people who may want to harm them. That’s why my husband and I decided we were going to create a private and safe space for our kids to play. Away from the prying eyes of strangers. The use of green screensdid that for us in no time.
A green screen is nothing more than an instant hedge that can be purchased at many garden centers. We chose purple beech trees that we planted all the way around our back garden. We chose them tall enough to already give some privacy, but they had grown and thickened in just a few weeks that our kids were soon able to play outside in complete privacy and safety.
