House Points "This house," said the real estate salesman, "has both its good points and its bad points. To show you I'm honest, I'm going to tell you about both. The disadvantages are that there is a chemical plant one block south and a slaughterhouse a block north." "What are the advantages?" inquired the prospective buyer. "The advantage is that you can always tell which way the wind is blowing." Passed Note A nearsighted minister glanced at the note that Mrs. Jones had sent to him by an usher. The note read: "Bill Jones having gone to sea, his wife desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety." Failing to observe the punctuation, he startled his audience by announcing: "Bill Jones, having gone to see his wife, desires the prayers of the congregation for his safety." The term "devil's advocate" comes from the Roman Catholic church. When deciding if someone should be sainted, a devil's advocate is always appointed to give an alternative view.

PRESENT HELP By Wallace Kennedy, Jr

Be encouraged my friends and neighbors, don’t lose hope, we have the victory and we WILL NOT be victims to this fallen world. You may be wondering what our tomorrows may bring, will our desires, dreams and visions ever come to pass. God wants us to live a victorious life; Romans 8:37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Consider the woman that hemorrhaged for 12 long years, she believed when Jesus comes through her community: “if I can get to Him and touch His garment I can be made whole she said”. At the same time Jesus was going to Jairus house to heal His daughter who in fact was already dead, Jesus raised her from the dead (Mark 5). The man that layed by the pool for 38 years for the stirring of the water, had an encounter with Jesus and was healed. The man that was carried and lowered down through the roof top in the presence of Jesus was healed. There are many testimonies of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ healing people in so many ways.

Jesus made us a great promise: John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; The Greek word Comforter means: paraklētos, which means: (1) summoned, called to one's side (2) one who pleads another's cause before a judge, a pleader, counsel for defense, legal assistant, an advocate (3) one who pleads another's cause with one, an intercessor (4) of the Holy Spirit destined to take the place of Christ with the apostles (after his ascension to the Father), to lead them to a deeper knowledge of the gospel truth, and give them divine strength needed to enable them to undergo trials and persecutions on behalf of the divine kingdom. So then, we have it better than those in Jesus day, we have the Holy Spirit abiding in us and with us always. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble .Psalm 103:1-5 Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s! (NLT)

Dear readers,

ASK DR. GAUNT

Last month I introduced our next series of articles: tough decisions that patients and dentists have to make regarding treatment-a reader driven topic based on your own tough decisions. I was asked about the choice between Implants vs. Bridge to replace a missing tooth. Wow, that is a tough one. Neither option is wrong, so I'll start with some benefits of choosing an implant since they are the newer kid on the block! Implants treat the space only without crowning both teeth next to the space; often the implant can be placed the same time a tooth is taken out, and implants can save the bone and gum structure that deteriorates after a tooth is removed. Ok, Bridge...Can be used if bone quality is not good for an implant; less overall treatment time; less out of pocket expense, especially if you have dental insurance. Great first "tough decision"! If Imagine our beautiful and functional custom designed you need a tie-breaker on an cabinets in your home. You’ll love the style and affordability. issue, feel free to call us for advice.

Baby Wrap

When I went to get my driver's license renewed, our local motor-vehicle bureau was packed. The line inched along for almost an hour until the man ahead of me finally got his license. He inspected his photo for a moment and commented to the clerk, "I was standing in line so long, I ended up looking pretty grouchy in this picture." The clerk looked at his picture closely. "It's okay," he reassured the man, "That's how you're going to look when the cops pull you over anyway."

Part of my job as a public-health nurse is teaching new parents how to care for their infants. As I was demonstrating how to wrap a newborn, a young Asian couple turned to me and said, "You mean we should wrap the baby like an egg roll?" "Yes," I replied, "That is a good analogy." "I don't know how to make egg rolls," another mother said anxiously. "Can I wrap my baby like a burrito?"

Love is not blind - it sees more, not less. But because it sees more, it is willing to see less. ~ Rabbi Julius Gordon TODAY IS THE OLDEST YOU'VE EVER BEEN, YET THE YOUNGEST YOU'LL EVER BE. SURVIVAL STRATEGY: As a "Prepper," Jason Deon Thomas, 32, of St. Petersburg, Fla., was preparing for the end of the world, and he intended to survive. To help, he had amassed 29 assorted guns, including a machine gun, and plenty of ammunition, along with bulletproof vests, body armor, helmets, and gas masks. Among other problems, Thomas isn't allowed to possess weapons: he's not only a convicted felon, but he's also on probation. A neighbor called police because he thought Thomas was a drug dealer, and sure enough the search also found cocaine, marijuana, and other drugs, as well as $7,390 in cash in Thomas's house. Thomas pleaded guilty to several federal charges, and was sentenced to 8 years in prison. (RC/Tampa Bay Times) ...So, he gets to live rent-free in a concrete bunker? Mission accomplished!

Health Focus

Thyroid Uptake and Scan Now Available at Dale Medical Center Dale Medical Center is happy to announce that their Nuclear Medicine Department will now be performing Thyroid Uptake and Scans. This scan will help doctors to better diagnose problems with the Thyroid Gland. The Thyroid Gland is located in the lower portion of the neck and wraps around the trachea or windpipe. It has two lobes attached to one another by the isthmus. Some say it is shaped like a butterfly with the lobes being the wings of the butterfly. The Thyroid Gland produces and stores hormones. Some of the functions of these hormones are to help manage heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and metabolism. High (hyperthyroidism) or low (hypothyroidism) levels of these hormones can cause many problems for patients. These levels can be tested for with blood tests. The patients doctor may order other tests (Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Biopsy) to

determine why these levels vary from normal and to gain more information about the patients Thyroid Gland.

JULY 2013 LaughsandLifts.com 16

A Nuclear Medicine Thyroid Uptake and Scan can provide a lot of information to your Doctor. It can relate the general structure of the Thyroid Gland and determine the degree of function in clinically-defined areas or nodules. The location of ectopic thyroid tissue can be determined. This scan can help the doctor differentiate different causes of hyperthyroidism and can assist in evaluation of congenital hypothyroidism. Before The Exam: ● Do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours before and after the first visit to the Nuclear Medicine Department. ● Patient should avoid foods high in iodine (Sushi, Kelp products, Seafood) for 2 weeks before the exam. ● Patient must not have had Iodinated Contrast Material (CT, IVP or Angio) for 4 weeks before the exam. ● Synthroid®, Levoxyl®, Levothyroxine® or other thyroid hormones should be discontinued 6 weeks before the exam. ● Cytomel® (T3) or Liothyronine should be discontinued 2 weeks before the exam. ● Antithyroid medications should be discontinued 4 days before the exam. ● Don’t discontinue any medications without first talking to doctor. During Your Exam: ● The Nuclear Medicine Technologist will explain the exam and answer any questions you may have. The patient will make three trips to the Nuclear Medicine Department. On the first trip the patient will be given a small radioactive iodine capsule to swallow. On the second trip, 6 hours after swallowing the capsule, an uptake measurement will be performed and pictures taken of the thyroid gland. This will take approximately 1 hour. Then on the third visit, 24 hours after swallowing the capsule, another uptake measurement will be performed. This visit will take approximately 15 minutes. ● The Nuclear Medicine Technologist will use an uptake probe for the uptake measurements and a gamma camera to take the pictures. These devices do not emit any radiation. They detect and record the distribution of the radioactive iodine in the Thyroid Gland. After the Exam ● The study will be reviewed by a Nuclear Medicine Physician and the results sent to your doctor. Your physician will discuss these results with you.

SUMMER TIME IS HERE … SNAKES ARE OUT and ABOUT… DO NOT's

Snake bites Snake bites occur when a snake bites the skin. They are medical emergencies if the snake is poisonous.

Do NOT allow the person to become over-exerted. If necessary,carry the person to safety. Do NOT apply a tourniquet. Do NOT apply cold compresses to a snake bite. Do NOT cut into a snake bite with a knife or razor. Do NOT try to suck out the venom by mouth. Do NOT give the person stimulants or pain medications unless a doctor tells you to do so. Do NOT give the person anything by mouth.

When to Contact a Medical Professional

Considerations Snake bites can be deadly if not treated quickly. Children are at higher risk for death or serious complications due to snake bites because of their smaller body size.

Causes All snakes will bite when threatened or surprised, but most will usually avoid people if possible and only bite as a last resort. Snakes found in and near water are often mistaken as being poisonous. Most species of snake are harmless and many bites are not life-threatening, but unless you are absolutely sure that you know the species, treat it seriously.

First Aid 1. Keep the person calm, reassuring them that bites can be effectively treated in an emergency room. Restrict movement as much as possible to reduce the flow of venom. 2. Remove any rings or constricting items because the affected area may swell. Create a loose splint to help restrict movement of the area. 3. If the area of the bite begins to swell and change color, the snake was probably poisonous. 4. Monitor the person's vital signs -- temperature, pulse, rate of breathing, and blood pressure -- if possible. If there are signs of shock (such as paleness), lay the person flat, raise the feet about a foot, and cover the person with a blanket. 5. Get medical help right away. 6. Bring in the dead snake only if this can be done safely. Do not waste time hunting for the snake, and do not risk another bite if it is not easy to kill the snake. Be careful of the head when transporting it -- a snake can actually bite for several hours after it's dead (from a reflex).

Call 911 or your local emergency number if someone has been bitten by a snake. If possible, call ahead to the emergency room so that anti venom can be ready when the person arrives. You may also call the National Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222•). The center can be called from anywhere in the United States. This national hotline number will let you talk to experts in poisoning. They will give you further instructions. This is a free and confidential service. All local poison control centers in the United States use this national number. You should call if you have any questions about poisoning or poison prevention. It does NOT need to be an emergency. You can call for any reason, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Prevention Avoid areas where snakes may be hiding, such as under rocks and logs. Even though most snakes are not poisonous, avoid picking up or playing with any snake unless you have been properly trained. If you hike often, consider buying a snake bite kit (available from hiking supply stores). Do not use older snake bite kits, such as those containing razor blades and suction bulbs. Don't provoke a snake. That is when many serious snake bites occur. Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible. JULY 2013

Man’s most important senses…Horse and Common. Government Pipe Specifications 1. All pipe is to be made of a long hole, surrounded by metal or plastic centered around the hole. 2. All pipe is to be hollow throughout the entire length do not use holes of different length than the pipe. 3. The I.D. (inside diameter) of all pipe must not exceed the O.D. (outside diameter) otherwise the hole will be on the outside. 4. All pipe is to be supplied with nothing in the hole so that water, steam or other stuff can be put inside at a later date. 5. All pipe should be supplied without rust - this can be more readily applied at the job site. N.B. Some Vendors are now able to supply pre-rusted pipe. If available in your area, this product is recommended as it will save a lot of time on the job site. 6. All pipe over 500 ft (153m) in length should have the words "long pipe" clearly painted on each end, so the Contractor will know it is a long pipe. 7. Pipe over 2 miles (3.2 km) in length must have the words "very long pipe" painted in the middle, so the Contractor will not have to walk the entire length of the pipe to determine whether or not it is a long pipe or a very long pipe. 8. All pipe over 6" (152 mm) in diameter must have the words "large pipe" painted on it, so

When ordering 90 degrees, 45 degrees or 30 degrees elbow, be sure to specify right hand or left hand; otherwise you will end up going the wrong way. 11.

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an Event Boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories

from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale. Thank goodness for studies like this.

YAWN: An honest opinion openly expressed.


DRIVE: A shot that comes after the whiff & before the Mulligan.

It was spring break and time for us to break out the camping and fishing gear. This year Danny, his son, my boys and I went to North Georgia. We had planned this trip for months and planned on going up for and staying for the whole week of spring break. We had checked out the weather a few days before it was time to leave and the forecast was cold with a slight chance of snow. That didn’t break our spirit at all; we just prepared for the weather and went. We started our journey that Monday morning. It was already cold at home and I was thinking to myself that it was really going to be cold up in those mountains. When we finally made it up to the entrance to the National Forest we had a long 8 mile drive on a dirt road up through the mountains and it was already beginning to snow. We finally made it to the lake where we would be camping and it was beautiful. The snow was falling gently around the cold clear water adding to the beauty. Our journey wasn’t over yet though. We unpacked on the shore line and had to paddle everything across the lake on our canoes to get to our official home away from away aka….the campsite. The snow storm got worse as the day went on and it just got colder and colder. We had a big fire going and had the tents set up. We found ourselves in a somewhat survival situation. What assured our survival in this snow storm was; shelter, fire, water, and the food we had with us. The next day woke up to a winter wonder land. I was sure that we were going to be snowed in for awhile but we were fine because we had assured our survival because we had prepared by bringing what was necessary to stay warm, dry and fed. It wasn’t a very comfortable situation but we survived it. What are some assurances you have for your spiritual survival when the storms of life are bad?

KLEPTOMANIAC: A person who helps himself because he can’t help himself. CONTINUED FROM PAGE 25 You know those times that I am talking about. It’s the times you say, “I’m not going to make it through this, this is too hard and too uncomfortable for me.” What is your assurance in those bad times? The Bible says in Hebrews 10: 22-23, “Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies mashed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful.” This passage is saying that we as Christians have been made new. We need to draw near with a true heart of the understanding that our Savior, the Lord Jesus, is faithful. We know He will never leave us. In John 4:13 it states, “Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His spirit.” There are times that you might experience some hard times in God’s creation just like we did, but we made it through because we came together as a team to assure our survival. It made our friendship with each other that much stronger. It’s the same in the storms in your life. Your assurance is in Christ Jesus and you have brothers in Christ that you can go through life’s struggles as a team. You will be strengthened in your faith in Christ and in your relationships with your fellow believers in Christ. I’m TJ Ward with Trails to God’s Great Outdoors; get outside and enjoy God’s great outdoors.

Sedation Dentistry Sedation Dentistry is a revolutionary way to accomplish your dental treatments without fear or anxiety. You dream…we work. Sedation Dentistry is often used during procedures that require an extensive amount of time in the treatment chair, and sedation is ideal for patients who exhibit dental phobia. Sedation Dentistry offers anxiety-free dental procedures as the patient is in a deeply relaxed state. though fully responsive. It means something even more important, a comfortable experience, so that little is felt or remembered from the dentistry procedure. When you awake, you are well rested, and your smile is healthier and more beautiful.
