Spring, Easter, Death and Taxes

This has good and bad things in it, just like life.

well I already posted the Easter Egg hunt, still going on don't miss out, fun, prizes, SHOPPING!!!

Artfire Jewelry Design and Jewelry Supply Shops Guild is getting ready for a spring fling, spring cleaning contest........more fun, prizes and SHOPPING!!!! I will be posting the information real soon so check back, sale will start April 17th.

Now Death, not a happy subject but an inevibility we will all come to realize. My 35 year old daughter in law passed away this weekend, in her sleep, with no warning, with no illness, not a drug user, nothing, but one thing, she was taking all natural diet stimulant for weight loss.........PLEASE tell your friends, family, co-workers any one you can about this danger...because it is advertised as all natural people think it is safe it is available over the counter so any one and everyone who wants to lose weight can and probably will try at least some type of chemical help at some point, I know I did.......please stay away from these horrible things....lifestype modification is your best bet..LEPTOPRIL AND LEPTOPRIN ARE KILLERS.
Now back to doing my taxes......count down is on.

No smile for this post...I am just so tired and exhausted, this is going to be a rough week.
Everyone thanks for reading and come back soon, promise I'll have some jokes, two to make up for this..............Joy aka catinalife

  9. That's horrible! You're right about the all natural concept, people do think that all natural = safe/drug free. However, most of our modern synthetic medications originated from "natural" substances. Foxglove for instance saves many with heart irregularities but in small doses. In large doses the plant is deadly poisonous but it's "all natural". Natural does not mean drug free, it means synthetic drug free. But synthetic, while not always best are monitored by the FDA for content and dosage consistency while "all natural" is not monitored by the FDA. Which means they can put almost anything in any amount in the "all natural" drugs.
    You're in my prayers.
