I have had some pain in my back after having my epidural,

Eva, a sciatica pain sufferer, asked a question about pregnancy and her epidural. The question of back pain during and after pregnancy is very common. "Top Ten Cures for Sciatica and Back Pain" is a best seller that helps anybody get back pain relief fast. The book is a best seller in sports medicine, but its information is definitely valuable for pregnancy back pain as well, as Eva asked below:

Perhaps Multi-Tasking is a failure mode and not a success mode.

So, I just had a thought that contradicts modern sociatal norms:

Is multi-tasking truly a valuable work skill? Or life skill?

Perhaps modern society's fixation on being a 'good multi-tasker' is a bad idea. How many unfinished books do you have in your house? How many 1/2 done projects in your life? After a while multi-tasking just become a life filled with bits and pieces, like so much flotsam and jetsam from trying to ship too much, too fast and too unsafely.

We love to watch the Olympics because the athletes are the BEST at something - often just one solitary thing.

Maybe the idea of 'multi-tasking' should be rethought? Maybe it is a liability for happiness and success?

My Yahoo migration lost my book marks FIXED.

I migrated to the new My.Yahoo.Com portal, only to find that my BOOKMARKS were gone.

Panic!!!! You bet.

Some of these urls I only access once a month, and have lovely secure addresses with cryptic sounding URLs. These are critical bookmarks as they point to my administrative pages for dozens of blogs, wikis, and URLs that I access for business.

I checked the My Yahoo tech support and community and found a widespread mutiny about the bookmark issue. Lots of people had bookmarks well organized (like me) alphabetically, and were doing serious administrative work using that funny little app. This was no fun, but after a few minutes I found that fix myself. (And no, this fix, is not easily documented on Yahoo, so I hope you find this article useful.)

A New Year’s resolution of NO depression for the world.

My self-help curing depression jumped way up in sales after the holidays... kinda sad. To help people get over the holiday blues, I just marked down my current edition to $3.99 to help my Kindle readers in this New Year. Link Here: http://www.amazon.com/Depression-Symptoms-Decoded-Vibrant-Recovery-ebook/dp/B007JX2UU4

**This book has mature content** This is NOT your typical dance around the darker side of depression book. It is brutally honest and bravely and savagely explorers the dangerous side of depression.

I see ebay book sellers are selling my discontinued edition for up to $60.00, but I would not recommend buying that edition. I don't expect it to become a collectable just because I took it out of print, as I have the new edition on the market.

A Visit with Master Artist John Grimball

I recently attended the Gallery event of Master Painter, John Grimball at the Art Affair Gallery Lakeway. The gallery is so tres chic and beautiful as to merit a separate discussion, but for the moment I can’t get John’s canvases out of the eye of my mind.

As a writer, I need to step away from my little writing world and experience new art, new perspectives and inspiring events. The whole “all work and no play makes Steve a dull boy” preventative sanity check; which is cured by the muse of other artists. The mastery of other inspired hearts expands my mind and clears my soul. This is good for my writing. This is good for me.
