Something You Should Know

6-signs-of-a-heart-attack6 Signs of a Heart Attack

A heart attack is nothing to brush off. They can come on quickly and kill instantly. So if you think you or someone around you is having a heart attack, contact 911 immediately. But if you are unsure, here are 6 signs to look out for.

  1. Chest Pain/Tightening – Tightness of the chest is one of the most telltale signs of a heart attack. This can feel like pressure, squeezing, or simply discomfort in the chest area. This pain can subside then return and can spread from the chest to the neck, head, back, or arms.
  1. Shortness of Breath – Feeling like you can’t catch your breath can be another sign of a heart attack. This can happen before the chest pain or while your chest hurts, so if you start to feel chest pain, think back to whether you were having trouble catching your breath recently.
  1. Nausea and Vomiting – Feeling like you are going to be sick, or actually vomiting, can often occur during a heart attack. This can be associated with burping or indigestion, as well.
  1. Arm Pain – Most typically in the left arm, it is common for the chest

Something A Little Different, A prospective From My Daughter Amber:

kidsBoundaries and Limits with Kids

By Amber Hillier

All parents love to see their children happy, they want their children to avoid hurt and heartbreak in their lives. To avoid this hurt, parents often shield their kids from the harsh realities of the world. I am not saying this is a bad thing, I absolutely agree that there are some terrible things going on in the world that a first grader does not need to know. But as an adult who has the job of helping kids to eventually grow up to be successful adults themselves, we need to make sure they are equipped to face the world and handle these hardships. If we put them in a bubble and never let them experience the pain that comes with a broken heart because their goldfish died or a fight with a friend when they come across these problems in much more serious quantities as adults they will not know how to handle them. If they are never told no, they will grow up expect the world to be handed to them. While it might be easier when they are five to give in and not have to deal with the …

How Toddlers Thrive By Amber

toddlerI picked the book, “How Toddlers Thrive” by Dr. Tovah P. Klein, for my report. This was a great book that gave not only a lot of insight as to what goes on inside a toddler’s mind but the reasons behind the way they act as they do. Dr. Klein was able to take the reasons that children misbehave, and by getting to the root of why they are acting that why, and give practice advice for dealing with a toddler.

The book was broken up into two parts. In the first part, it was all about getting into the mind of a toddler, to understand why they are doing what they do, and shame. Dr. Klein, I think described the changes that a child is going through between the ages of 2-5 best, she said, “sometimes they feel in control of the big world they have just become a part of and are eager to explore and get to know, and sometimes they are completely overwhelmed by this same world, which can lead to feelings of anger, worry, fear, or a need for comfort” (Klein, pg. 6-7).  The first part of this book dug deeper into this, giving examples …

In Bible times, people traveling by boat often encountered great dangers. Crew members and paying passengers battled not only rolling waves but apprehension and fear. They left behind the security of dry land and the loving faces of those seeing them off. No guarantees were promised for a safe return. “When we had come to the end of these days, we departed and went on our way; and they all accompanied us, with wives and children, till we were out of the city. And we knelt down on the shore and prayed. When we had taken our leave of one another, we boarded the ship, and they returned home (Acts 21:5-6 NKJ).

The Apostle Paul and traveling companions on missionary journeys often exchanged sad farewells with faithful followers. They …

My Time On The Lake by Jeff

supra-likenessAfter graduating college I found this beautifully kept cottage/house on one of Oakland County’s inland lakes. The house was small around 900 square feet with well kept, with knotty pine paneling on the inside and beautiful landscaping on the outside. I purchased the house from an older lady who told me she and her husband had owned the house for many years, she told me the importance of wiping down the paneling twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Why I remember that I don’t know, maybe because of the passion and care she used to explain it to me.  She wanted the house to go to someone who cared for it, as she and her husband once did. She found the right guy!

Once I bought the house I did some minor fixing up, nothing major as it was in immaculate shape already, most of the work was on the outside lakefront area. It had a nice dock but weeds had overtaken where boats were once docked. Once this area was cleared I was able to maneuver my boat into its docking space, a 30′ red Supra, a beautiful boat used for skiing, tubing, …

My Time In Northern Michigan

Even Tide Tours TrainI remember before I went to work full time I visited northern Michigan, more specifically Marquette. I spent time there in summer and during the winter, each of those visits was a great experience with more than enough to do.  I guess that’s why I leaned toward getting into the photo business, I was able to take beautiful pictures during the summer which were breathtaking and during the winter months, I was able to capture absolutely gorgeous pictures of the lake front.

During one adventure into the woods, we stumbled across what appeared to be an old steam engine graveyard. For all train enthusiast, this was a once in a lifetime event, it was like all of a sudden we stumbled into a clearing of train tracks and there they were, standing in their quiet majesty, strong and still.  I don’t know if they were forgotten about or just left there to fade away, but it was a wonderful discovery, we climbed, we touched, we imagined what they were hauling, well we could see most of them seemed to be carrying ore from the local mines, ore was scattered all over the place. Tiny little balls resting there for who …

Some Day The “Yacht Life” By Celeste

eventidetours.comGrowing up in San Diego, CA was probably one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I pretty much grew up in the water, whether it was being in the pool or going to the beach.  I was practically a fish.

Some of my best memories are the summers where I spent a few weeks with my best friend at her lake house. We would go out on her boat and go tubing and water skiing or just ride around and get tan! We were on the boat and in the water more than we were on land.

It made me think of how cool it would be to spend one of those days on a yacht. I have never been on a yacht but spending lots of time at the beach means you pretty much have seen every type of boat there is.  The yachts are what stuck out to me. The people on there were able to spend literally all day on the water. They didn’t have to worry about when they would eat or if the sun would get too hot where they would go. They had all the room they needed and it made me envious.…
