Ghost Writer/ Critic Needed

I'm a university faculty member who'd like to write occasional reviews of serious contemporary fiction, but lack both the time and the writerly style do do them myself. (I mean reviews in newspapers and magazines for general readers; we're not talking about scholarly work for academic journals, which I do more than enough of myself.) I'm hoping to work with someone who could help me (in a collaborative way) identify suitable books for review, and write very elegant, polished first drafts. You should be knowledgeable about contemporary fiction and able to write thoughtfully and sensitively about it. This is strictly part-time, but I will make it worth your while. Pay entirely negotiable, at least .20 per word. Probably more, I'm new to this and want to make sure I'm paying well. Contact The Employer : stylus@pobox.comLink

The Dead Town

I waited for what seemed like forever for the fifth book in the Frankenstein series, to come out in paperback. Finally it came to my local Walmart and I have finished it. This is the last book in the series, and for the most part I loved them all. The fourth book was a bit of a drag on, but the first three were awesome. This fifth book built you up and built you up, but I found the climax to be very anti-climactic. It just kind of went poof for me, rather than wow that was awesome! You need to read the fifth book to see how it all ends. Next on my list is to catch up on the Odd Thomas series. I read four, I think there are six all together.

Make Money Investing In Real Estate

My mom and a friend of hers actually used to do this when I was a young adult. They would go to tax auctions, research the property first, and then buy, fix, rent and or sell the properties. They made a very nice supplemental income, and when my mom became disabled the properties were her source of income. She has since sold them all, but it was a nice investment for about 15 years.

Healthy Thursday: The Benefits of Drinking Water

My sister owns wrinkle puppies. Aren't they the cutest things you have ever seen? Of course not everyone will agree, LOL! I have never seen wrinkles look so good.

Anyway it is Thursday, and that is the day I get to blabber on about things I find healthy, or interesting about health. A month ago or so, I saw a very interesting report on the news. It stated that drinking 8-10 ounce glasses of water per day showed no health benefit, as opposed to any other drink of the same amount. So that made me think, and I personally think that is not accurate. Here are my thoughts why:

1- Water has zero calories. So drinking an 8 ounce glass of water is much different than drinking soda, milk, or even coffee unless it is black.
2- Water is pure and moves through your system quickly. With no additives or caffeine, it increases your kidney function without all the wastes of other drinks. I personally find water to be very effective in cleaning out my kidneys. It moves through my system much faster than any other drink out there.
3- Water is essential for all the homeostasis or balance that your body needs. Other drinks may have sodium or caffeine in them, which can disrupt the balance of the body causing dehydration, irritability, or cramps.
4- If you take a lot of narcotic pain medication, due say to an injury, constipation is a huge problem. To naturally soften the stool and aid in the movement of the bowels, increase your water intake. It is a natural softener and lubricant. Obviously if adding water or any liquids to your diet is contraindicated by another medical condition this would not be a good idea for you to do. Always speak to your medical care provider before making any drastic changes to your diet, and that includes fluid intake.
5- If you are dieting or trying to lose weight, drink a full glass of water before you sit down to eat. This will fill you up faster and tell you stop eating before you can over eat.

I think water is wonderful!

Healthy Thursday: Kicking The Soda Habit

As some of you who read this blog know, that on Thursday I focus on healthy things to change your life. I have been trying to give up Pepsi for sometime now. I have my good weeks, and bad weeks, but can proudly say that if I have a Pepsi, it is never more than one a day, and I am hoping to make it just a few times a week. As anyone knows giving up something completely cold turkey is not successful.

So some things I have been doing when I am craving a Pepsi is to eat watermelon, or drink Lipton diet green tea. I like the berry mix the best. Green tea has other health benefits as well, but I will save that for another post. Watermelon is mostly water, but gives soothes the sweet cravings I get for Pepsi. I try to keep it on hand all the time, especially this time of year. The Lipton diet green tea has no calories, but is sweetened. I think I can conquer this Pepsi habit once and for all , by the end of summer.

Do you have something you want to give up? Have you been able to do it and how?

Healthy Chicken Dinners

Today is Thursday, and that means it is time for Healthy Thursday tips. If you are tired of the same old sauce, or don't know what to add to a chicken meal to make it less fattening but still have flavor, then this might work for you.

Spaghetti and meatballs is a staple in our home. But I get tired of sauce, and meatballs are not exactly a low fat food. This picture is of chicken and olives, that I found on Google free images. I made a version of this last night and it was delicious. Please not black olives are not fat free so eat them in moderation, but they are a good replacement for higher fat meats, sauces, and butter.

For me to make something really low fat, I do not cook in any oil or butter. Just coat the bottom of the pan with water to keep the moisture. Use boneless skinless chicken breasts. Be sure to eat a serving size which is the size of a deck of cards. I add onions, black olives, garlic, and red wine vinegar to add flavor. Once the red wine vinegar starts to cook off, add more as desired. You can add grape tomatoes for color, and added flavor, plus they are very healthy. I did have grape tomatoes in ours, but no one cared for them, so I won't use them again. They did make the dish appealing to the eye. My husband sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on his, but I avoid cheese if I can. Try it and let me know how you like it. You can always sprinkle on a touch of salt if it is needed, once you have tasted for saltiness. Serve over pasta or rice, and you can of course choose whole wheat pasta for optimal health choices. I do find wheat pasta to have a different flavor, but like all things you get used to it.

Healthy Thursday Tip: Water Aerobics

I love water aerobics, especially as I get older. Water aerobics has less impact and stress on the bones and joints. It is especially nice for people who suffer from muscle or joint disorders. I love my swimming pool in the summer months. It is a good investment if you need to exercise, but regular aerobics is too much on your body.

Healthy Thursday: Beautiful Hair

There are so many products on the market that boast beautiful stronger hair. Of course most of this is not true, and your lovely hair comes from your genes more than anything else. However, there are some things you can do to help. Most important like anything else that has to do with health, is to eat a healthy diet. Your hair will show if you are eating unhealthy, or are more importantly malnourished. Take a vitamin with Biotin in it. Don't wear your hair up to bed, and don't wear it up at all if you can help it. I love Pantene shampoo and conditioner combo, it is awesome and I use it on my daughter as well. It is more expensive, but I have tried many different shampoos but I love that one the most. I have thick, coarse hair, so I also use a leave in conditioner, and do not wash my hair every day. Every other day is fine, unless you are a heavy sweater or your hair is greasy.

Healthy Thursday: Decrease Your Salt Intake

Do you know how much salt an adult human is supposed to consume? 2300 mg per day is the correct answer. Do you know that 9 out of 10, or 90% of adults consume at least twice that much each day? It is true, and I don't want to even consider children. Did you also know that your body needs sodium? It is true also, it is an electrolyte vital to the normal functioning of the human body. So how and why do we consume so much? Research shows there are three main culprits: eating out, eating processed foods, and snack foods. Chips, soda, pretzels, crackers all are extremely high in salt. Foods that you eat in a restaurant, or fast food place, are loaded with salt because we demand it for taste. It is in our taste buds it seems.

So what to do? There are many low sodium products on the market. They can be expensive, but if you can get used to them it is much better for your body. Drink extra water to flush out any extra salt you consume. Cook your own food, using the freshest ingredients, to avoid added salt. Don't cook with salt if you can help it, and definitely don't add salt after you sit at the table. Use garlic, or other spices to flavor your food, that are not high in salt. Learn to read labels. I can not stress this enough. Take a few extra minutes and read the label. It will tell you how much sodium is in the item, per serving.

Excessive salt can lead to water retention witch can cause weight gain and heart problems, high blood pressure, and kidney problems. By lowering your intake of salt, you can help your body be healthy and strong.

As I always note, this is not medical advice, it is material taken from personal experience to share with you. If you already have an underlying illness or take medications, you should always consult a doctor before using any medical information on the web. Be safe, and be wise.
