A few days ago,I posted on my Facebook how my Restless Leg Syndrome was driving me nuts!  I had asked if anyone had any solutions, and I got some interesting responses...a few from my friends here on ActiveRain.
 
Cindy Edwards suggested I blog about it here, and I agreed it was a great idea.  I always learn so much from the friendly and informative folks on ActiveRain, so if you can add any other RLS solutions, I would love to hear them!

A couple days ago, I received an email alerting me of a referral need through ActiveRain.  I immediately replied offering my assistance.  By the end of the day, the referrer emailed me saying they had a TON of response, but that they were choosing me because of my dedication and consistency on ActiveRain, my local experience and longevity in the business, but also due to my civic duties.  They really appreciated my GIVE BACK program, and were fellow animal lovers as well.  I have already connected with the client, and we of course hit it off :-) .  Thanks for another … (13 comments)

Here’s a list of some of the herbs and spices that will give a healthy (and flavorful) boost to your foods.

When you think about exercising, you probably start thinking of hitting the treadmill or pumping some iron. But the third key component necessary for fitness is flexibility. It reduces the chances that you’ll be plagued with muscle strains and aches, enhances your performance at other fitness activities, improves blood flow to your muscles and joints — and can even help you reduce your stress levels. And then, of course, there’s the thought of a beautiful, long, lean, sculpted body. Fortunately, there’s more than one activity out there that can improve your range of motion and keep you limber. Here are a … (15 comments)

waukesha cty wi realtor: Could Your Beauty Products Be Sapping Your Youth? - 07/23/11 08:48 AM
Could Your Beauty Products Be Sapping Your Youth? Everyone wants to feel gorgeous, and all those beauty products on the market promise to make our skin soft, healthy, and appealing. But many of these contain chemicals that can actually have the opposite effect, sapping moisture and health from our skin. The worst offenders are emulsifiers, chemicals that allow oils and water to stay mixed. They break down the natural oils on skin, allowing water to evaporate and closing off cells so they can’t eliminate waste or take in nutrition. The result? Cells die prematurely, and skin gets thinner and thinner and … (25 comments)

Our bodies are mostly made of water, and yet we lose two to three quarts of it every day through perspiration and other bodily functions. As a result, we need to constantly replenish our stores to ensure the right hydration levels to carry nutrients and waste to and from all our cells and organs, lubricate our joints, and regulate our body temperature. Follow this advice to keep your body running in tip-top shape: Get at least 64 ounces of water each day. Yes, eight glasses! The proverbial eight glasses of water each day don’t have to come just from pure … (29 comments)

waukesha cty wi realtor: Funny Fridays! - 07/15/11 09:59 AM
Last week,  my friend checked into a motel on her 70th birthday but she was a bit lonely. She thought, "I'll call one of those men you see advertised in the phone books for escorts and sensual massages." She looked through the phone book, found a full page ad for a guy calling himself Tender Tony - a very handsome man with assorted physical skills flexing in the photo. He had all the right muscles in all the right places, thick wavy hair, long powerful legs, dazzling smile, six pack abs and she felt quite certain she could bounce a sixpence … (23 comments)

This was emailed to me, and I thought it was worth sharing :-)
  On the first day,  she sadly packed her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases.

On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.
On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining-room table, by candle-light; she put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water.
When she'd finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten … (18 comments)

You may think of sweet potatoes as that yearly dish you drag out for Thanksgiving, dump from a can, then top with brown sugar and a few handfuls of marshmallows. While it might taste yummy to add a virtual candy bar to your sweet potatoes, you may be missing a food that is just about perfect on its own! In fact, this amazing vegetable not only tastes great, but it’s also packed with nutrition. Here’s why:

Supplements That Assist in Weight Loss Success Even people who eat the healthiest foods may not be getting enough nutrients through their regular diets. The nutrients just aren’t there anymore, plain and simple. The quality of food just isn’t what it used to be, so we supplement. While a good multivitamin that’s loaded with key vitamins and minerals and a supplement with omega-3 fatty acids are a must, there are some other nutrients that can play strategic roles in helping you lose weight by burning fat and carbohydrates.
Carnitine helps fat transport into the mitochondria, where it has a chance … (17 comments)

waukesha cty wi realtor: What Can I Compost by Kristin Johnston, Waukesha County WI Remax Realtor,Buyers Agent - 05/03/11 09:20 AM
I started composting this year.  You might be surprised to know how much everyday stuff can be composted, including a lot of the waste normally dumped down the kitchen sink.   A very helpful article was emailed to me, so I thought I would share some of the mentioned tips:

BROWN PLUS GREEN EQUALS BLACK GOLD! 
The best compost "recipe" includes a combination of carbon-rich brown materials (dry leaves, plant stalks, pine needles,small twigs, wood shavings, shredded newspaper) and nitrogen-rich green materials (fresh leaves, lawn clippings, fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, tea bags).  Carbon is the spark that … (16 comments)

waukesha cty wi realtor: Did you Know? By Kristin Johnston,Waukesha County Realtor,Remax,Buyer's Agent! - 04/21/11 09:55 AM
 
I recently received an email regarding 3 ways to washing windows better, and I thought I would share it with you.
 

1.  You might think hot, sunny days would be best for washing.  But, glaring sun keeps you from seeing well enough to do a good job.  And, heat makes window-cleaning solution evaporate faster than you can wipe it off, which leaves streaks.  Rule of thumb?  Touch the glass.  If it's hot, wait for a cooler day.
 
2.  You know how the automatic car wash rinses off your vehicle before spraying on the suds?  Use that same … (17 comments)
