Our ToothbrushSubscription Package Has Arrived!



Here's Toothbrush Subscriptions story of how it works:

A Toothbrush Subscription is very simple. The first thing you do is choose a toothbrush that best suits you. We carry a selection of high quality manual toothbrushes. Once you add your toothbrush to your shopping cart you will choose how often you want to have that fresh toothbrush automatically delivered to your door (every 1, 2, or 3 months.)

Your first toothbrush will arrive within 3-8 business days, via snail mail and then a fresh toothbrush will arrive again, automatically, on the schedule you set (every 3 months for example.)

You can choose just one toothbrush or as many as you like. There is no limit. It's that simple!

Thursday's Thoughts ~ March 27, 2014





Did you hear that Sprinkles has opened an ATM that delivers fresh cupcakes, in New York City, this week? What a yummy idea!

So, instead of getting money, from an ATM, I can get a cupcake? I'm all in for that!



This week, HuffPostLive panel discussed "Noah" and "Son Of God" and the Buzz, around these movies~good and bad. I've read some of the comments, regarding these movies. Let's face it, you're not going to satisfy everyone when you make a movie about a well-known story ~religious or not.

What I do believe is that people have stories they want to tell and there are people who want to see them. And Hollywood will continue to make and distribute these films, as long as they have the potential of making money!

In the meantime, I've added both movies to my Netflix DVD queue.



I thought it was fresh and smart to put Kim K. on the cover of Vogue. It's created buzz and ultimately selling magazines. And isn't that the reason one creates a magazine cover?!

What are your Thursday Thoughts this week?

Health.Com: CT Scans Might Help Diagnose Gout in Some Cases

WEDNESDAY, March 26, 2014 (HealthDay News) ~ CT scans can help detect gout that’s been missed by the current standard testing method, a new study suggests.

Gout is a common and painful form of arthritis caused by a buildup of uric acid in the body. The standard test — called needle aspiration — involves taking fluid or tissue samples from a gout-affected joint and checking them for uric acid crystals.

This test usually detects gout in patients, but not always.

In this study, Mayo Clinic researchers found that dual energy CT scans detected gout in one-third of patients who had negative results on the needle aspiration test. The CT scans were particularly effective in patients who’d had several gout-like episodes but had remained undiagnosed.

I Had A Great Time On HuffPostLive Today! "The Importance Of TLC For Every Body"



Today, I joined Kirsy Rodriguez, Beauty Advocate for Women with Disabilities and Maggie Redden, Ms. Wheelchair New Jersey, along with Nancy Redd, this morning.

Kirsy shared that she didn't let her disabilities stop her from applying makeup. She shared that she uses the table, adapts her makeup tools to apply her makeup. Matter of fact, Kirsy declined having HuffPostLive makeup staff services and applied her own makeup. And she looks flawless!

Kirsy's Beauty blog, Barrier Free Me, will be launching soon! We'll be checking that out for sure!

Maggie Redden, Ms. Wheelchair New Jersey, spoke about her introduction to pageants, makeup and growing up.

I definitely enjoyed being part of this panel. Just because we have chronic conditions doesn't mean we don't appreciate makeup, skincare and fashion!

This segment will continue to be available on HuffPostLive. Just click here. Did you see the segment?
