About Drinking Water

I have read the importance of drinking water from a book and also from my research in the internet. In fact I've been drinking a few glasses of water right after I get up in the morning. So far so good. It helps me lost some weight. The following will probably amaze and startle you...

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?

The Real World

It's time to read some jokes guys. My hubby sent to me the following jokes and I've been laughing while reading it. They said that laughter is the best medicine. It's free and it make us feel good. Read on...

The woman applying for a job in a Florida lemon grove seemed way too qualified for the job...
"Look Miss," said the foreman, "have you any actual experience in picking lemons?"
"Well, as a matter of fact, yes!" she replied. "I've been divorced three times."
Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbor and his wife were told there would be a 45-minute wait for a table.
"Young man, we're both 90 years old," the husband said "We may not have 45 minutes."
They were seated immediately.
The reason congressmen try so hard to get re-elected is that they would hate to have to make a living under the laws they've passed.
All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle.
They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and placedsomething in his hand.
The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly.
As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.
Three friends from the local congregation were asked,
"When you're in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?"
Artie said, "I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader and a great family man."
Eugene commented, "I would like them to say I was a wonderful teacher and servant of God who made a huge difference in people's lives."
Al said, "I'd like them to say, 'Look, he's moving!'"
Smith climbs to the top of Mt. Sinai to get close enough to talk to God. Looking up, he asks the Lord, ;
"God, what does a million years mean to you?" The Lord replies, "A minute." Smith asks,
"And what does a million dollars mean to you?" The Lord re plies, "A penny."
Smith asks, "Can I have a penny?"
The Lord replies, "In a minute."
A man goes to a shrink and says, "Doctor, my wife is unfaithful to me. Every evening, she goes to Larry's bar and picks up men... In fact, she goes with anybody who asks her! I'm going crazy. What do you think I should do?"
"Relax," says the Doctor, "take a deep breath and calm down. Now, tell me, exactly where is Larry's bar?"
John was on his deathbed and gasped pitifully.
"Give me one last request, dear," he said. "Of course, John," his wife said softly.
"Six months after I die," he said, "I want you to marry Bob."
"But I thought you hated Bob," she said.
With his last breath John said, "I do!"

It's Been Ages...

...since the last time I updated this blog. I didn't go anywhere. It's just that we didn't have internet connection again because of the same old problem, somebody had stolen again the phone line in our area. It's really so disgusting why the thieves keep stealing the phone lines. They said the thieves sell the copper that they get from the phone cables and they make money out of that. They steal during the night when all people are sleeping in the area where there are no houses. This is the 2nd time it happened this year. I just hope they will stop stealing so we will not lost our phone and internet connection. I missed checking my e-mail, facebook, friendster, communicating with my friends and loved ones and of course updating my blogs. I missed blogging and making money online.
