Actos Lawsuit

I have never had diabetes, but I do know people who struggle with it. It's sad to hear how much it can affect people's lives. I get high blood sugar while pregnant sometimes, and am thankful when it figures itself out once I have my babies. I feel for the people who deal with it on a daily basis for life though. Many people take I thought it important to share something I recently read about Actos. Actos is an oral diabetes medicine that has been shown by recent studies to lead to serious injuries like heart attacks, heart failure, and an increased risk of bladder cancer which can lead to an Actos lawsuit possibly. Basically, Pioglitazone, the chemical name for Actos was sold under the trade names Actos, ActoplusMet, Competact and these are things you need to watch for if you have diabetes.


My brother and his wife have two sons, and are now looking to adopt a third child. The adoption process is much more lengthy than I thought it was...but they are very patient and going through the steps. They can't wait to get a call that there is a little one waiting for them. To help offset the costs that go along with adoption, they have been doing many things...including face painting to raise money. They're very creative and I'm sure will have no problem coming up with the money.

23 weeks pregnant

It has been a little while since I wrote about what is going on in our life other than the fact that we sold and bought a home! YAY! One of the biggest changes is the fact that I'm now 23 weeks pregnant!! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy is flying by. With two little ones I hardly have time to think about it. I actually like it, that just means we'll get to meet our little bundle of joy even sooner. November will be here before we know it. I can't wait!


I feel like everywhere I look and read there are new alerts from the different medications we take. Sometimes I wonder if it would be better to try a more holistic, natural approach to our ailments. For instance, I just read that on January 4 of this year, the Food & Drug Administration alerted healthcare professionals to rare cases of severe liver damage associated with the use of Multaq. I know it said "rare", but still... the possibility is kind of scary. Symptoms of severe liver damage include stomach pain, weakness, shortness of breath, redness, difficulty breathing, rashes, diarrhea, rapid weight gain and more. It's definitely something to be cautious of if you've taken this. If you have taken it and experience symptoms, it would be worth looking into a Multaq lawsuit.

New Stove

One of the things we are going to need when we move into our new house is a stove. The old owners are taking it with them. We're looking forward to finding one...but to match everything else it has to be stainless steel. I sure hope we can find one for a decent price. I've actually been looking on Craigslist and also the ads for great deals on appliances. So far haven't found anything that will work, but we still have a little time I suppose.

New House

This is going to be a really busy weekend. We don't have plans to go anywhere, but now that we sold our house...we have a lot of things to pack up and clean. I keep thinking of everything and it gets a little overwhelming. The next month is going to go by quickly, and the work isn't going to end when we move in. The house is move-in ready but we still have a lot of painting and cleaning to do. The kids are excited though. It will be a lot more room for them.

Crowd Control Products

Have you ever been at the bank or in line at a concert, only to have people walking in front of you and getting out of line easily? I sure have. I often have wondered if there was a way to control the crowd I know that you can! Crowd control products help people stay in line at all kinds of places so we all can get where we need to be faster and easier.

Stanchions come with retractable belts, velvet rope and more ways being developed all the time. There are even some that you can have printing done on the belts!! Then there are barricades are for traffic control, security and privacy. Things like fence barricades, traffic cones, pipe and drape walls, are just a few of the many ways to do that.

There are obviously many products to help with crowd control out there. I'm hoping all places where people have to stand in lines get some sort of product to help keep things orderly and under control.

Summer in Texas ~ Guest Post

Summer in Texas

Authored by Rickey Combs

What is it about summertime that I love so much? I think it really takes me back to my childhood when we used to all run around with bare feet and go swimming in the lake whenever we had the chance. Sometimes, even though I’m an adult, I like to make homemade popsicles when the weather warms up and really get into the summer spirit. Recently I went to because my air bills were just getting out of control since it’s so hot here in Texas and I even talked to my brother about going in on a pool membership with me so we could take a dip when it gets really hot! I love this time of year and I adore being able to wear shorts and stuff like that – if it were up to me I would dress like this twelve months out of the year but I’m not sure everyone else would be okay with that! Summer’s here in Texas and I invite all of y’all to come on down and see what it’s all about!
