Love That Day

Is there a date on the calendar more emotionally charged than February 14? I doubt it. Whether a woman is married or single, 18 or 80, Valentine’s Day often sets off a silent eruption of feminine remorse–secret reckonings of love gone awry, soulful sighs hidden behind the flowers, chocolates, and greeting cards. Or lack of them.

Glimpsing an old photo or dusting a sentimental talisman can evoke the same kind of sorrow disguised as wistfulness. In only a few seconds, your heart is racing, and you find yourself trapped in an old cycle of pain or even rage, as memory reassigns blame and reinforces guilt. I know a woman who bursts into tears in an elevator whenever she hears a piped-in rendition of their song–going back 25 years and two marriages.vday

These melancholy murmurs can be devastating. I used to dismiss them as fast as I could, and I suspect I’m not alone. We turn our hearts away from what feels like an accumulation of wrecked dreams and failed efforts, afraid that whatever killed our old love is poised, waiting to strike again. And we bury or discard

How To Identify Hard Drive Failure

Hard drive failure is a common problem, which is often experienced by PC users at one time or the other. It is therefore, not a unique problem. However, people who are not fully prepared to face such a kind of problem may find it very stressful to deal with it.

clicking-drivesOne of the evident signs of hard drive failure is silence on your hard drive even when it is powered. The hard drive is supposed to be producing some kind of noise every time it is powered. If you realize that there is dead silence, then this is one of the signs of hard drive failure. First, check whether all your connections are done rightly. You may also need to check the loose ends so that you can easily establish the cause of failure. If this does not bring about any difference, you may need to seek another alternative of identifying the problem.

Hard drive failure can also be characterized by a loud clicking sound when the hard drive is powered. This sound may sometimes be occasional as well as continuous. Such a clicking sound may require urgent attention to get rid of further damage to the hard drive.

Signs And Symptoms Of Hard Drive Crash

Hard drives are often used to carry some vital information for the users and they also store data which is very valuable for individuals, companies and organizations. The problem with most of the PC users is that they do not think of creating backups for their data such that in case of any data loss, people end up losing it forever and they have no chance to recover it. Note that hard drive failure does not have any warning. It can happen at anytime even when you do not expect it at all.

Couples Stay Close The Right Way

The Petersons of San Diego have two young children and hectic lives. But every morning while dressing, they take time out for a simple, private ceremony: David removes Anita’s wedding ring, then slips it back on her finger as he says, “I love you.” Anita does the same with his ring, and they kiss.

“The ritual began shortly after our wedding, with David asking, `Will you marry me?'” Anita remembers. “Now we just do the ring ceremony without the question, but the result is the same: We’re reminded of all the wonderful reasons we got married. It seems to start the day off on the right foot.”

Such romantic gestures are more common among newlyweds. Spirituality plays a part, yes, but even after the kids are born, and life and work get complicated, couples can develop special rites that will sweeten their days. This is not about habits, like a peck on the cheek before leaving for work. What’s magic about rituals is that they focus the participants on each other, while excluding the outside world. Although the rituals can be elaborate–like a wedding anniversary party that

Treating Snoring With Pillows

sp1My kids gave me a couple of snoring pillows yesterday. I did not have to ask them why despite many other things that they can think of as present for my birthday, they decided to buy me these items. My kids are the ones who suffer the most because of my snoring. Although they are sleeping in a separate room, this is not enough distance to be saved from hearing my snore. I can still remember the first time when my wife complained about my snoring. She waited for me to wake up one morning and discussed the matter with me. She complained that she’s deprived of enough sleep. She pointed out the importance of getting enough sleep as this is where one gets the energy that he needs for the following day. I understand why my family is not pleased about my snoring. They always tell me that it is not just about their need for enough sleep. They keep on reminding me that snoring is not good for one’s health, and even worse for your relationships. Now, with the pillows that my kids just gave me, I came to realize that they are really serious about convincing me to have my snoring treated. I think I have to give in to what my family wants since it is all for our own good. Continue reading »

My Search For The Best Skin Tag Removal

bstrI want to know about the best skin tag removal. I gained a lot of weight during pregnancy. According to my friend, skin tags usually come out when one has gained weight and it’s no surprise that I am now suffering from it. I used to be slim but probably because of hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, I gained around twenty pounds. Now that my baby is already 2 months old and I already gained the energy I lost when I gave birth, I think it is time I make myself beautiful again. I was advised not to take on intense workout yet so I guess I have to focus on my skin first. I read about home skin tag remedies but I think pulling out hanging skin using a dental floss or cutting it off with the use of scissors is very painful. I am also afraid that my skin might get infected by it. I prefer having my skin tags removed with the help of skin professionals. I am planning to take on electrocautery. I already went through this procedure for my warts and the pain was …
