Again the blog title is related to a line for the song that I will post the link to at the bottom of the blog.
Beat Sinus Pressures
1. Avoid irritants with an air filter
Microscopic fungus spores in the air contribute to sinus woes in 96% of chronic sufferes. Using a HEPA air filter helps removes these culprits.
2. Prevent persistent pain with water
Getting low on fluids can trigger swelling in the lining of the nose, resulting in pain an increasing the risk of infection.
3. Ease pressure with a hot compress
Applying a moist, heated washcloth across your forehead and nose for 5 minutes, 3 times daily, helps losen congestion, clearing pressure-building mucus from the nasal cavity.
4. Protect airways with a scarf
Pulling it high enough to cover your nose will kepp cold air from rying sinus membranes, reducing their susceptibility to germs.
5. Soothe sinuses with steam
Making sure the small hairs that line the sinuses stay moist and are able to move back and forth helps send bacteria and other irritants out of the body. To do: breathe in hot steam during a shower or by bending over a hot cup of tea and inhaling deeply.
6. Maximize relief by keeping your chin up
Propping your head up with an extra pillow or two throughout the night helps drain sinuses while you sleep.
1. Business Class
I'd been working on my business degree for about a year when I finally got to take a popular finance course. I went to the bookstore to buy the text and was shocked to find out that it would cost me $96. I asked how much it was worth if I sold it back at the end of the semester.
"You'll get $24," said the clerk.
"This is insane," I protested as I wrote out the check.
"I know," replied the clerk sympathetically. "I've always thought that a person who buys a book for $96 and then sells it back for $24 should fail the course."

3. Keeping Her Word...
There was a man who had worked all of his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money. Just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me."
And so he got his wife to promise him with all of her heart that when he died, she would put all of the money in the casket with him.
Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait just a minute!" She had a box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away.
So her friend said, "Girl, I know you weren't foolish enough to put all that money in there with your husband."
The loyal wife replied, "Listen, I'm a Christian; I can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."
"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!!!!?"
"I sure did," said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account and wrote him a check. If he can cash it, he can spend it."
4. Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and Complain About Our Pets
1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy and walks on all fours. Although they doesn't speak clearly, they communicate extremely well, especially cats.
5. Dogs and cats are better than kids ...they eat less, don't ask for money all the time, are easier to train, usually come when called (this does not apply to cats), never drive your car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink, don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, and don't need a gazillion dollars for college. Also, if they get pregnant, you can sell the children!!!
