I Was Shocked When I Saw This On My X-Ray

Having This In Your Chair Can Really Help

Hey!  I hope your day is going great! I am just getting back from a short trip to Orlando where we saw the Christmas Exhibit at The Gaylord Palms Resort Hotel.  It was incredible. They managed to build an entire little city out of ice blocks (2 million pounds of them to be exact) and they had dozens of characters, buildings and furniture topped off with a slide, all made entirely of ice.  It was very cool!

A Vitamin That You DO NOT Want To Be Deficient In

Hey! I hope you're having a great day! This time of the year brings many changes. Changes in the time from daylight savings time, days getting shorter as we approach the winter solstice and cooler temperatures (at least that's what we're told is supposed to happen...).
