Top 6 Peaceful Places for Women To Explore with Pets

Many women are the emotional centers of their families. In our modern world they often work full time even as they take on the primary responsibility of child-rearing, care for parents or other loved ones, and often do most of the housework. It’s no wonder that women get overwhelmed and need some time away.

But taking time away doesn’t always mean living your favorite puppy behind. If you want to travel with your canine companion, you may need to do some extra research to make sure that your destination is pet friendly. Many locations even offer special amenities for your four footed friends.

Find some peaceful and beautiful places to explore, especially if you’re bringing your pets along for the ride.

Big Bear Vacations

As a year-round vacation destination, the California community of Big Bear Lake can’t be beat. Located just a bit northeast of San Bernadino, the lake itself is the biggest recreation lake in southern California. With activities and events throughout the area, visitors are sure to enjoy themselves. Around the lake itself, leisure activities and outdoor adventures provide visitors all the possibilities they can imagine.

If you want to bring your pets with you to Big Bear Lake, a number of accommodations are pet friendly. Instead of trying to find a baby-sitter for your lovely companion, you may enjoy a vacation rental without needing to leave your most beloved friend behind.

Red Mountain Resort

If you want to see the red rock areas but you don’t want to leave your puppy behind, the Red Mountain Resort in Utah is a fantastic choice. Human visitors get unforgettable hiking tours, amazing dining options and an unbelievable spa, while dogs are greeted with food and water bowls and organic treats. While you may enjoy your health lecture or evening yoga session nearby a large breath-taking canyon, the resort would accommodate dogs in its huge backyard, giving them plenty of room to romp and play. Some of the resort activities even include puppy friends.

The Muse

This New York City hotel is so committed to its pet friendliness that it even has a Director Of Pet Relations. Ginger the teacup Pomeranian is happy to make sure that all accommodations are pet friendly and delightful to dogs. Of course the amenities for humans are lovely as well, from the proximity to Times Square to the options for in-room pedicures and welcome packages.

Wherever you’re looking to travel, if you search hard enough, you can probably find pet friendly amenities for you and your favorite pup to vacation together. Even if you are seeking around a particular location in other resort communities, you may be able to search local websites to find listings of cabins, rental homes, and resorts, which are friendly to pets. This can take a lot of the hassle out of organizing a trip.

If you want to vacation on your own, then you should, but if you want to bring your four legged friend with you, find a pet friendly destination and enjoy the trip with your best friend.

How to Get Your Eyes Ready for a Filter Free Selfie

These days, when social life has been replaced by social media time, the saying that, “a picture is worth a thousand words” couldn’t be truer. First impressions can make or break a person.

Errata: Not Knowing These CPT® 2017 Code Corrections Could Sink Your Claims

On March 30, 2017, the AMA posted an update to its Errata and Technical Corrections document for CPT® 2017. That correction is a simple addition of a semicolon to gastric emptying imaging study code 78264, but it’s a great reminder to check that your team (or your procedure code lookup tool) has caught all the corrections that apply to you. Here’s a look at some of the changes that could affect your coding choices.

Bring 35321 Back to Your Thromboendarterectomy Options

If you don’t think the corrections are ever big enough to impact your coding accuracy, consider this. On Oct. 17, 2016, AMA published a warning that it left a code out of the printed manual: 35321 (Thromboendarterectomy, including patch graft, if performed; axillary-brachial).

Being aware of the correction in this case saves you from reporting a less appropriate code for an axillary-brachial thromboendarterectomy.

Add ‘Equal to’ in These 7 Descriptors

A symbol causes issues in the long descriptors for seven codes. In each case, the original code descriptor is missing the symbol for “equal to.”

• In the manual, the descriptors for radiation treatment delivery codes 77402, 77407, and 77412 indicate they apply in cases involving greater than 1 MeV. The corrections file revises the descriptors to clarify that the codes are appropriate for greater than or equal to 1 MeV.
• The printed manual makes a similar error in CD4+ cell Category II codes 3496F and 3498F, using a “greater than” symbol that the corrections document revises to “greater than or equal to.”
• Category II code 4194F got a correction to show it applies to a patient receiving greater than or equal to 10 mg prednisone. The printed version, as you can probably guess by this point in the list, includes only the “greater than” symbol.
• “Greater than” didn’t cause all the trouble, though. In the descriptor for the Category II breast cancer stage code 3372F, the corrections document changes the relevant tumor size from less than 1 cm to less than or equal to 1 cm. FULL POST

Say Goodbye To Acne With The Help Of Birth Control Pills

Nobody likes dealing with acne. With all of the different creams, diets, and infomercials out there promising to deliver you lasting results but failing you every time, it can get quite stressful to get a handle on. If you’re struggling with acne, consider the positive benefits of taking birth control pills to tame breakouts once and for all.

What Is A Birth Control Pill

Birth control is a contraceptive mechanism which prevents the fertilization of a female’s ovum, or egg cell, by a male’s sperm cell. It comes in many different forms, one of which is a birth control pill which is ingested daily by the female. This pill introduces synthetic hormones into the female’s body which alters her menstruation cycle, thus, preventing the egg’s fertilization by the sperm. FULL POST

The mind's disorder tales place without our awareness of how or why delusions, hallucinations, obsessions, depressions and anxieties occur. But these aberrations do not take place randomly. They occur because the laws of mind are broken, just like a broken leg, needs to be recognised, treated and healed. Practical psychiatry makes this possible because the object of all law is order, attraction and motion. In physics orbiting planets are ruled by the force of gravity in their preset order and movements. Similarly, instincts, follow laws that are preset by God to preserve and reproduce human life. The law of reason is the higher rational law that understands, directs and controls the instincts to follow the laws of conscience, coexistence, family, government and society. These are psychological and social laws that are full of affection and emotion and are subverted only by will power and choice, wrong thinking or sinful desires. Nothing exists apart from God's will and laws, the law of love being the sole object and purpose of his Mind.

Hold the Mustard! 5 of the Best Cuisines for Food Trucks

As more people seek to break away from the traditional nine to five grind, many foodies are turning to mobile food trucks as a way to economically get a foothold into the competitive food service market.

Starting a food truck can be a liberating lifestyle choice, or a smart first step into the exciting and lucrative world of the restaurateur.

Consider the Australian award-winning ethical fast food chain, Lord of the Fries, who began with a single mobile food van and now boasts sit-down stores in many Australian capital cities. From small things, great things can grow!

Not all cuisine however, is mobile van friendly. Attempting to peddle steak accompanied by plastic cutlery, or offer spaghetti and meatballs on a paper plate, is literally a recipe for disaster.

This then begs the question — “What are the most popular and suitable foods to sell from a mobile food van?”
The options below don’t have to be traditional or run-of-the-mill. You can mix and match your cuisine and add your own unique stamp to your creations, forging a brand and product which people will flock to sample. FULL POST

Want a Closer Relationship with Christ? Be Physically Healthy

healthy body

It’s true that Christ will love you no matter what you look like. You can weigh 125 pounds or 325 pounds, and he’ll still accept you for who you are. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be healthy. There are many ways that a healthier lifestyle can actually bring you closer to your savior.

Our Bodies Were a Gift: Let’s Keep Them Healthy

A fundamental Christian belief is that our bodies and spirits are separate entities. When we die, our spirits will pass on to the other side and our bodies will remain on earth. Some Christians also believe in a resurrection in which their body will eventually join the spirit on the other side.

The body is a gift from God to house our spirits and enjoy our earthly living. We know that, barring illnesses we have no control over, if we treat it correctly and avoid external harm, we can experience general health and wellness. Our limbs and joints will move as we ask them to, we’ll be able to think clearly, and we’ll live a long life. FULL POST
