Wholesale Prices Now Available for Strong, Effective, Low Cost Numbing Cream for Online Pharmacies

So that when a product/medication is needed (even rarely), you can have room to keep it in stock, and buy it in larger quantities, thus saving money. The key though is to not only have those specialty items, but to use the rest of the warehouse wisely as well. Carrying the brands that sell the best, because they help the patient/customer the most is key.

Using Humor to Resolve Conflict

So, this priest goes on safari, right? Yeah, I know. It’s a weird way to start an article. Stay with me though. The priest somehow gets lost and finds himself wandering the Serengeti.

The priest runs as fast as his tired legs can carry him, but he doesn’t get far.

November makes us think about Thanksgiving and the coming holiday season with all the mixed feelings that come with that realization. Thanksgiving is about family and gratitude.

Veterans Day: Cost of Freedom

Veterans Day is difficult for me every year. This year, Veterans Day will be particularly challenging.  Normally, I either keep myself busy with mundane tasks or submerge myself in some monumental project.

Some years, I have avoided all contact.

5 Gun Safety Tips Every Gun Owner Should Know

Whether it’s for sport or protection, the moment you become a gun owner, you become responsible for safely carrying and using a firearm. Below are safety tips that every gun owner should know before they make the purchase.

1. Always Assume Your Gun is Loaded While Handling It

Unless this is truly your first rodeo when it comes to gun safety, we can assume you’ve heard not to keep it loaded. A safe gun owner assumes the day will come when handling a weapon he or she just knew was unloaded – until, one day, it isn’t. That’s why it’s best to build the habit of handling a gun as if it were loaded, all the time.

Choose Professional Website Design for Seamless Service and Layout

Web design has an important role to play for every online-based business. For powerful and effective website design, you need to take a few things into consideration. The most important thing is the visual appeal. When a website is developed or designed, it must look visually appealing. If a business website is visually appealing, it can potentially fetch more customers or website visitors. The second most important thing is to make the website simplistic so that visitors can find the options easily. When visitors struggle to find the various website options or features or menus, it gets extremely difficult for the website owner to make money through such a website.

Speak Again

It was Dr. Maya Angelou who said that at age 7 she believed her voice will kill people. Why would Maya say this? When she was 7, her moms lover raped her (such a painful memory).

The Right Approach for Getting a Mortgage Loan Early in Your Life

With mortgage loans being readily available, home buying has become quite easy for all. If you are in your early 20s and dream of owning a home, it is now within your reach, courtesy of mortgage loans. Instead of staying in a rented home that simply drains your money, using the monthly rent for making the loan payment is always a good idea. Indeed, you must arrange for cash to make the down payment, but that is all that you must spend to own a home that costs many more times than what you pay. Be ready to pay 10% -20% of the property value as a down payment with the rest coming from the loan.  If you are eligible for FHA loans, the down payment would be as little as 3.5% only.

The Real Culprits in the Trump Saga

I’ve tried really long and hard to figure it out. How did we get here? How did, we as a nation, arrive at this point of divisiveness, corruption, ineptitude, and toxicity at our highest and most prestigious office in the land—the office of The President of the United States?

Three years into Trump’s presidency, we have seen plenty to be concerned about. We have seen lies, hypocrisy, ineptness, coercion, bullying, obstruction, slander, racism, divisiveness, and abuses of power among others. Most disturbingly, we have seen signs of mental illness. We have also seen the very fabric of our democracy and the Constitution under attack from the executive branch. We have seen attacks on the free press. We have seen Congress threatened and controlled. We have seen abuses of the use of executive orders. We have even seen threats of riots. We have seen enough drama to make us sick as a nation. I’ve found myself going to emedihealth.com to find cures for nausea and stress headaches. I’ve often said that I understand people who are mentally ill, evil, lost, corrupt etc., but I’ve never understood the people that surround these individuals for allowing their behavior. Make no mistake, President Trump should be held accountable and is responsible for the current Constitutional crisis. But he alone should not shoulder the entire blame. It takes a system of enabling to allow one individual to bring so much chaos. So just who is responsible for our current crisis?
