How To Rid Your Child’s Hair (And Your Home) Of Pesky Lice

The first thing you need to remember when a bat gets in your house is to stay calm. Flipping out and being scared isn’t going to help the situation. Staying calm will also help other people in your house be more relaxed and level-headed as well.

No he won’t. He might be outraged that he has to defend a lawsuit and take time away from his practice for a few days, but there is no reason for him to shut his medical practice.

The way they fudge on reporting this is that it takes 3 days to get the confirmatory nod from the CDC on a given viral culture, but based on epidemiological grounds, we know that there are more than 10 cases for each “confirmed” case right now.

We’ve all heard about the nasty little creatures called BED Bugs. In our minds they have infested everything from the stores we shop in, the movie theater, schools, our favorite restaurant, down to your child’s best friend’s house. The thought of a sleep over, rather your child be attending or hosting, just sends a shiver down your spine, and your full time companion “What if.?” knocking on your minds back door.

After taking into consideration the pros and cons of each situation, it’s still a personal choice. If you aren’t ready for the responsibility of owning your own home, or if your lifestyle would be better suited to renting, then that’s the right decision for you. However, financially it is a better choice if you can buy your own home. You’ll be increasing your personal worth, rather than that of the landlord.

When my banking is done and I’m pulling out of the driveway with , , or 0 in my pocket, it is difficult to pass up the Taco bell. I rationalize this decision by telling myself that it is more ecologically efficient not to drive around and look for someplace healthier to eat. That rationalization sets off a whole stream of other objections to the Taco Bell menu, of course. There is all that beef that might be raised in who knows what cramped pen and fed with who knows what kind of genetically modified grain and hormones. There’s no way for an average Joe to know what they’re eating these days.
