Have You Flossed Yet Today?
“Periodontal disease has serious health consequences that go well beyond cavities, tooth loss and, halitosis (bad breath)…Current research has clearly shown that periodontal disease is a known factor for increased risk of heart attacks and strokes, in addition to being a cause of nearly one in five preterm births and a factor in rheumatoid arthritis….” – The Oral Health Bible¸ Michael P. Bonner, D.D.S, et al.
Periodontal disease – gum disease. Resolved by flossing, regular dental checkups and periodic professional teeth cleaning.
Flossing is essential to good health.
I bought a vintage, cherry chest/dresser yesterday and a large oval walnut framed mirror. I’m not one for matchy matchy. I think they look very nice together. I brought the mirror home and the dresser will be delivered next week. I was running out of space and have clothes piling up; and that’s after giving away quite a lot.
I bought both items at
on State Hwy 57 in Stewartsville (Warren County). I bought a cabinet there several years ago that I use for my fish tank.
Harvest Star has a very nice collection of vintage and antique furniture, china, decorative items and jewelry. I have to control myself when I’m in a place like this because I have a tendency to want to collect and I’ve tried to stop that. Still when I’m in need of something, I often prefer something vintage over something new because of the quality of materials and workmanship. The dresser I purchased is cherry. I, quite honestly, can’t afford a solid cherry dresser. The one I bought cost about the same as one at a furniture chain and that dresser would be made from MDF (sawdust). It was a very good buy.
