Subject: move to Oklahoma !

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election…
While everyone is focusing on Arizona ‘s new law, look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!!

An update from Oklahoma : 

Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values…! HB 1330

Guess what?………. Oklahoma did it anyway. 

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB 1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake. 

Guess what?………. Oklahoma did it anyway. 

Recently we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal’s to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB 1102 

Guess what?……… Oklahoma did it anyway. 

Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining Texas , Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. 
More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Carolina’s, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003 

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns.. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I’m sure that was a setback for the criminals. The Liberals didn’t like it —
Guess what?………… Oklahoma did it anyway..

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma , you must read and write English.. Really simple. 

By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either.

Guess what?…who cares… Oklahoma is doing it anyway. 

If you like it, pass it on, if you don’t then delete it…Thanks, Guess what? : the people I’m sending this to , will send it on. Well, at least the ones who love and believe in freedom will.

It’s the same mattress

I was recently doing some research on buying a mattress when I ran across this review.  It really turned a light on for me.  I found it extremely informative.   It’s up to you if you trust his review but he will certainly make you think.

Epinions-Unbiased Reviews by Real People

Once upon a time I sold mattresses. All the major brands – Simmons, Serta, Sealy, etc. The brand is not important. I am not going to discuss brands, but tell you how to buy a mattress in the real world.

All of the major companies make a decent mattress. They each claim to have some sort of system that makes theirs a better mattress, but they all make a decent mattress.

To start, even before I explain how to choose a mattress, I should tell you that the system is designed to confuse you. Most of the major brands have a system wherein they change the names of the SAME mattress at each different chain store so that you can not price shop. What is the Simmons “Royale” at Macy’s will be the “Regency” at Penny’s. You can not price shop by name or color of the cover. You can only price shop by specifications. If the “specs” of one Simmons mattress is that it has a wool cover and a certain number of coils, then that is all that you can use to comparison shop.

Now, as a mattress salesperson for almost 10 years, I could never keep track of this coil count stuff and I don’t expect you to, either.

Each company makes certain “levels” of mattresses. There is the cheapo, the decent cheapo, the good one and the better one. With each company, they usually have 2 tiers. With Simmons, the “top line” is the Beauty Rest. With Serta, it is the Perfect Sleeper, for instance.

Well, who cares? Here’s the deal: with mattresses, you get what you pay for. A cheapo mattress is about 10% material – foam, steel, padding, whatever and about 90% air. A middle of the line mattress is about 40% material and 60% air. And so on.

Go in the mattress store and start lifting up the corners. Some are heavy, some are light. Now look at the price tags. Surprise!

Weight in a mattress is directly proportional to how well it will hold up in the long run. Weight ON the mattress is also proportional to how long it will hold up. When I slept alone and weighed a 100 pounds, I could not wear out a cheapo mattress.

Buy a cheapo, lightweight mattress for the guest room, if it is not often used. Buy it if you are a student and going to throw it out in a year or two. But, if you are heavy and have a heavy spouse, you head right over to the heaviest, most solid mattresses in the place.

But don’t buy a pillowtop. I shock everyone by saying this. A pillowtop mattress is a normal mattress with a layer of extra padding on top. It will wear out and flatten down, long before the actual mattress will begin to show a dent. But it is sewn on! And you pay an extra hundred bucks for it! Buy a mattress pad instead. Pay 40 bucks and throw it away when it mashes down. And get another one. Cheaper than a new mattress.

Now, for the rest of it. Lie down on the mattress in the store. Roll around. If you sleep on your side, lie on your side. Hang out for awhile on it. Now lie on your back. Place your hand under the curve of your back. There should not be a space. The mattress should be conforming to the curve of your back. Very hard mattresses will not and there will be this big gaping space between your back and the surface.

You will toss and turn all night. A too hard mattress will cause you to lose circulation in parts of your body and your sleep will be broken due to your turning to alleiviate this. Each company makes an outrageously hard mattress, but even the companies themselves tell the salespeople to discourage the sale of these to anyone over 60 or with circulation problems. But there are those who feel that they can’t sleep on anything else. So, don’t blame me if you are always tired.

Determine what level of mattress you need. Do you need the one that will hold up for 10 years? Are you heavy? Is this for your 60 pound child? Are you going to get married one of these days and dump the twin-sized?

This gives you your price range.

Now go try a few. Some you can reject immediately, the too expensive, the pillowtops or the ones too obviously hard or soft. This will give you 4 or 5 to truly test. Spend an hour on them. One or two will feel right.

Then you can go ask about coil counts or warranties, if you must. But, trust me, you can always tell by the weight of the mattress.


To color or not to color…..

 This is a post to the older generation.  The grey ladies mainly.  You gentlemen may enter into this post if you want to but that probably would mean very few.  OK ladies I want to give you some peace of mind, the ability to sit back and give a great big sigh. How you ask, can I do that.  Forget that color on your hair.  For  almost 45 years I have put color on my hair.  I was getting prematurely grey in my 20s.  I would worry about “the grey showing” and the more I colored the more I hated to have to go through all that trouble.  Then all of a sudden I found that the more I colored the more it made me feel dizzy to spend all that time upside down rinsing the color off, then the soap, etc.  I see several spots of dark brown color in my bathroom where it should not be and it makes me mad.  Finally one day about 3 months ago I said to my beauty operator, to give me a short haircut (my hair is naturally curly) and lets get that color out.  It didn’t take as long as I thought and it didn’t look bad being a “little bit dark and a little bit light”.  I cannot believe just how white I really am.  It is beautiful and now my beautician puts a little mousse (Chocolate Kiss) and my hair looks a little like it has been streaked.  It is so pretty I can’t believe I didn’t do this years ago.  Also think of the money I will save not having to purchase color. My daughter wasn’t the happiest person with grey but who cares and my son just never even mentioned it.  If you have been knocking the thought around and can’t decide, well GO FOR IT.
