Getting Your Tadalafil Online is Brilliant and Convenient

In the past, prior to the advent of the internet and e-commerce, people usually rely on pharmacies and drugstores to provide them with the medications they need.  Although this has always been the norm, the problem is that some retail outlets do not have, cater, or carry out certain branding or medications simply because they are not in partnership with the drug label or they do not stock such because they do not sell much and just occupy storage space.  For this reason, if you are looking for a certain drug that is not available in your area, either you go look around for it in neighboring cities that may have them, or simply settle for the nearest alternative to the drug but may not even come close in terms of effectiveness to what you are looking for.

Fortunately for all of us, we now live in an age where online commerce is abundant and internet connectivity is easily available.  This means if you are looking for a certain product or a particular type of medication, all you have to do is go online, open your favorite web browser, then, using your favorite search engine, enter your search query like “buy tadalafil online.”  This search will give you thousands of results, then it is up to you to look for the shop you would want to buy tadalafil online.

Blue Zones

Blue Zones are places in the world where people live “astoundingly long lives” – for example, reaching the age of 100 three times the rate of Americans. And suffering a fifth the rate of heart disease. Imagine being able to hold your great-great-grandchild one day . . .

I first learned of Blue Zones when one of the editors I work with went on a “Quest” to the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica, one of the four Blue Zones (the others are Okinawa, Japan, Loma Linda, California, and Sardinia, Italy).

Dan Buettner, a journalist who worked extensively on researching these communities, has come out with a book titled The Blue Zone. I want to read the book in context, so I’m refraining from skipping ahead, but based on the Blue Zones website and other articles I’ve read, I know some of the lifestyle practices of centurions are (1) plant based diets (not necessarily vegetarian, but plant-based); (2) laughter; (3) spirituality; (4) family; and (5) physically active lives (like gardening and laboring).

Just because Washington DC isn’t a Blue Zone doesn’t mean my body and my house can’t be one.

Toes

Lately, I’ve been giving them a lot of thought.

First, my yoga teacher is always including toes in her instructions. Lift them off the ground (one at a time). Spread them. Plant them back on your mat (one at a time). It takes awhile to learn to control them – they’re so often ignored. Second, I was reading a book about a woman who had a stroke and was paralyzed on her left side, including all her toes. She was explaining the rehabilitation process and talking about the fact that she realized – once she could no longer use them – how important toes are for balance and for pushing off of when walking. Third, I just so happened to be reading the book passage while I was getting a pedicure (a gift from my husband).

So toes were on my mind.

For most of my life I didn’t pay attention to them. And when I got older I would shove them into cold, hard pointy shoes. In turn, that led to foot cramps. The cramps would attack in the middle of the night and hurt so bad I’d cry. But when I started practicing yoga, I noticed my foot cramps disappeared. I decided to give my feet the love they deserved. In addition to yoga, I began wearing comfortable shoes. And from time to time, I’d get a pedicure. I stopped painting my nails awhile ago (to avoid the harsh chemicals), but today I made a special exception.

I picked a color – Dutch Tulips – in honor of spring.

When they were red and shiny, I wiggled them and smiled. Thankful for my toes.
