Mint Pouch Helps Smokers Stop Smoking

Mint snuff is receiving some wonderful testimonials from cigarette smokers. Many have combined the pouches with the use of the patch to successfully end their smoking habit and improve their health.

With oral cancers, throat cancer and others that are associated with dipping, chewing and smoking, this product is a much welcomed alternative that can be used by many to help them with the challenge of giving up their addiction.

Heart disease and lung problems are also associated with tobacco products, making it  a potentially deadly problem.

The mint pouches are also useful for those suffering with TMJ, bad breath and dry mouth!

By the way, I just found these sites and I think the information could be helpful to many people. I am not affiliated with them or paid by them in any way.

According to MintSnuff.com,


Mint Snuff is a tobacco alternative, not a tobacco substitute, and is therefore not subject to tobacco taxes.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has categorized Mint Snuff as food. It is manufactured with food-grade ingredients that are all Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the Food and Drug Administration. It is an edible product, similar to candy.

Police REFUSE to arrest occupy protesters


On Sunday, October 23, 2011, the law enforcement officers of Albany, New York, made a startling decision to IGNORE the requests of their mayor and governor.

Finally, sanity prevails.

With protesters acting peacefully, local and state police agreed that low level arrests could cause a riot, so they decided instead to defy Cuomo and Jennings.
“We don’t have those resources, and these people were not causing trouble,” a state official said. “The bottom line is the police know policing, not the governor and not the mayor.”

Inspiration for Writers


I've just begun writing again, a welcomed challenge that I seem to go through in phases. I have found some interesting blogs that would be inspirational, instructional, and just plain good reading for writers or wannabe writers. Hopefully I'll visit them often and persevere to a finished project this time.

A friend and I are collaborating on a project right now and I have high hopes for it. Of course, I always have high hopes, I just don't have a high rate of completion (grin).

Anyone who wants to write, probably can. It just takes dedication to complete a project. With word processors that not only check your spelling, but also alert you to grammatical errors, there is no excuse to not attempt to write that one proverbial book that apparently lies within each of us (so they say).

Starting is easy.

I have started so many stories it boggles my mind. Finishing them, that's the hard part. I now realize that I am going about it the wrong way - you know what they say, doing something over and over again even though it isn't working, is the definition of insanity. Of course, I paraphrased that concept.

I'm gathering some writer info into a blog post for future reference, and also so others might benefit from them.

I used StumbleUpon to find these sites referring to writing, so feel free to friend me over there. I also found a cool site that gives you one word and then allows 60 seconds for you to write about it. It's a great little exercise. Join me there too, they have a great community and we can be friends and share our one word blurbs. My username is "bloglady" on both of these sites.

“Begin with an individual and you find that you have created a type; begin with a type and you find that you have created–nothing.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

I was so happy to read that quote! We are working on the character first and allowing her to take us on this journey. Yay! At least we're off to a good start!

Writing Links:
(will open in a new tab or window)


  • This first one has links to many free software programs that writers can utilize. My favorite of the bunch is "Rough Draft," a free program that helps writers, especially those writing screenplays and television scripts. He no longer updates the software, but it is still available for download.

Ghost Proof Your Home

Halloween is around the corner and October in general is a month when strange happenings occur. I hear many tales of unexplained phenomena such as lights going on and off, knocks on the door when no one is there and sometimes just a "feeling" that someone is watching you.

Is there any particular reason that spirits are more active in October? None that I can think of, except that it has been believed to be this way for centuries.

However, those who know more about the cosmos, the star alignments and geomagnetic pulls may have some valid reasons why October is the bewitching month.

Ghostly superstitions and beliefs exist in all cultures, and today I found a nice image that shows ways to ghost proof your home. The traditions come from many different cultures and are easy to do, except for the Kaballah thing.
