At the age of seven months, Christopher Rush was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, and his parents were told he would be "no more than a dishrag, and dead by the age of two." Christopher lived to 30, and in that time he achieved more than most able-bodied people do in a life-time including becoming the first quadriplegic in the United States licensed as a scuba diver. He was the manager of his high school basketball team, he went to prom, he graduated from the University of Michigan with honors, and he graduated with a Juries Doctor from Wayne State University.
Shortly before his death, Chris developed a motivational program called GO FAR, a series of steps that could help guide people who wanted to achieve their goals despite the insurmountable obstacles in front of them. His mission was to share this program with those with disabilities, and by his definition, "Everyone has a disability," In honor of the memory of his friend, and to keep Chris's movement alive, film editor Zack Arnold created a movie about his story. No matter what challenges you may face, success is always possible!

Heading back to school is always an exciting time and maybe even a little nerve racking. Everyone has a backpack full of new supplies, some awesome new clothes and a chance to start fresh. Now is the time to stand out from the crowd!
Whether you're kids are going back to high school or hitting the college campus, one way for them to really make an impact and show off their unique style is accessories that will turn heads!
Summer time may be coming to an end and that may means that time spent hanging out at the pool or having backyard gatherings and barbecues is short lived for most parts of the country. There is, however, one last summer holiday that helps us say good bye to bikinis, shorts and flip flops ~ Labor Day! (Okay...you can still wear the flip flops!) Although Emily Post would cringe at the thought of wearing light weight, light colored summer clothing after Labor Day, most of us still enjoy our shorts and white clothing long after this time of the year.
In her day, the summer season began on Memorial Day and ended promptly on Labor Day. During this time society flocked from the city life to sea side homes, beach houses or mountain cottages to escape the sweltering city. Clothing that dictated the daily life in the city was of course left behind and replaced by lighter and whiter clothing but upon returning to the city in the fall, the dress code was back in full effect and the summer attire was packed up for another year. "No white after Labor Day" was the the rule.

My family and I had the honor of staying at The Emily Morgan Hotel ~ a DoubleTree by Hilton a couple of weeks ago while on mini-vacation in San Antonio, Texas. Although I had read many articles online and done a bit of research on the history of this amazing hotel, I was not prepared for the luxurious experience that awaited us.

Wishing to look young, beautiful and strong is in human nature. All of these are signs of healthy organism and they show how much we care about ourselves and are willing to invest in our well-being. These things make us attractive to opposite sex, confident and they give us a chance to develop as a being. It is a real shame that our youth must come to an end. As we grow older, body is no longer able to maintain its youthful appearance. We are no longer able to synthesize different matters that are important for sustainability of cellular structure. This can be easily seen through various diseases and conditions that are affecting older people. Among other things, our skin starts suffering and wrinkles appear after a while. Luckily, there are different esthetic procedures at our disposal that allow us to treat this issue. Perhaps the best one of them is use of medical fillers.

I'm a big fan of television shoes such as Flip or Flop, Flip this House and Flipping Out and love watching how they find these homes, renovate them and then sell them with a huge profit. Amazing! Although I would love to do that too, I've never had the confidence that I would know what to do or have what it takes to make it happen for me.
