don do pilates. i did and herniated discs. if you have a back injury you need to avoid stressing your spine.

The salon assure me that the color solution automatically shuts off after 40 minutes and there was no damage to my hair but I don't quite believe this. doesn't all hair color/dye have ammonia?

I posted above about coloring gray roots. You can try leaving the dye on longer, but at some point you have to buy color that has double pigment in it to color the gray. I color my roots at home, but I use professional color. Professional dyes have special formulations with intense pigmentation to cover a lot of gray. Regular old hair color won't cut it.

Banning by state is useless because we don't have border checks by states. Which the NRA knows.

We don't need border checks by states. If guns are banned in a state, and a person brings in guns, that person goes directly to jail. Anyone found with a gun, directly to jail.

[ - ] This is a line in a Divorce Doc : "Husband & Wife agree that Lila shall inherit all real and personal property owned by them to be sold for his education and welfare" . ...EX-DH had an apartment at that time, worth 1M dollars, purchased with the proceeds from the split of the Marital Home. 10 years ago. Since then , he re- married and had new children with new wife. All now live in that apartment. Upon his death, Can I force his wife to sell it & give me the proceeds for my DD, since it was willed to Lila in the Divorce decree ? 39 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

My 4 year old bashed in his front two teeth when he fell out of his bed one night. He cut the inside of his mouth and it was really tender, despite the fact that the two front teeth didn't come out or go grey. But he couldn't eat much of anything for 2 weeks. All liquids and then super soft. He was so bummed about it and missed his favorite foods so much that he had me write them down and put sticky notes on the walls so we could make sure to eat his favorites the minute he was all healed. Maybe you can do that too! :) [ Reply | More ]
