Trash Picking and a Home Remedy and a Note on Banking
Home remedy: I think my gall bladder is unhappy. I have been having slight symptoms on and off for a while (probably because of my crappy diet) so of course I went to Google first (mostly because I know the standard protocol for gall bladder problems is just to yank it our and I am pretty fond of my internal organs and want them to remain, well, internal and not tossed away in the garbage). So I did what I recommend people DON'T do and came across this gall bladder flush (which was recommended in a number of other blogs and websites as well) so I am giving it a try starting later today. Of course I realize this isn't the best thing to do when you may have a medical problem but 1) I am a much bigger fan of natural medicine than invasive medicine, and 2) it seems relatively safe (I remember years ago my grandmother's cure for stomach ailments were a spoon of castor oil and this is similar), and 3) I can always fall back on my local doctor if it fails. And most important, I think this is the wake up call I needed to change my diet. I have been eating healthy, natural food only for the past few days and I haven't even been interested in my near daily habit of aStarbucks Frapuccino or a Baskin Robbins Blast.
And a cool thing I learned about banking: I now have a local bank but I got a check from one of my clients and I wanted to put it in my other account in my bank in Washington. This usually involves endorsing the check then putting a note on it that says it needs to be deposited into my account, then mailing it to my bank. I saved myself the cost of a stamp and envelope yesterday because my bank now has a way to scan the check and edeposit it into my account. And it worked!
