“Is It Arthritis or Joint Pain?”
Do you have an ache in your wrists, knees, or ankles that makes it difficult to do simple things like type or walk up stairs? Everyone experiences some type of joint pain in their lives, but is it arthritis? Though you may associate arthritis with older people, it can affect anyone at any time in life – even children. The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis, will affect 1 in 6 people in their lifetimes.

If you are experiencing joint pain, here are ways to manage the symptoms and live a normal life:

  • Exercise and move around the right way. Though you may believe otherwise, inactivity can actually make the pain and loss of movement experienced with joint pain or arthritis worse. Low-impact activity, stretching, and exercise like yoga or walking keeps your joints loose and improves blood flow to damaged tissue.

  • Avoid repetitive motion. High-impact activities like running, or repetitive motions like swinging a tennis racket can make pain worse. Instead, do gradual strength-building exercises to build muscle around the joints.

  • Try massage and hot/cold therapy. Massage can help relieve symptoms and lift your mood, so a monthly session can be beneficial. Try a heating pad or hot bath or shower to help ease pain as well. Ice packs can help with swelling after exercise.
If you’ve been diagnosed with arthritis, there are ways to ease pain:

  • Pain medications that also reduce inflammation (NSAIDs) can help. Check with your doctor for other available options.

  • Reduce pressure on painful joints. Buying a better mattress, losing a few pounds, and being careful to do the right exercises to reduce the strain on your joints can all help.

  • Keep your body healthy with a diet including fish (twice a week), nuts (about a handful and a half daily) and olive oil (2-3 Tbsp./day) which all contain omega-3 fatty acids to help reduce inflammation.

DIY Mobile Device Fixes
The smaller and slimmer laptops and cell phones become, the more easily they can be damaged. Before you spend too much on repair for your cracked screen or the key on your keyboard that doesn’t work anymore, it could be worth taking a crack at it yourself.

Drop your phone in a puddle? – Quick, stick it in a jar of rice! No, really! You may be able to absorb the moisture before it does damage. First, power the phone off. If you can, remove the battery and towel it and the phone dry. Fill a jar with regular dry, uncooked rice and leave it for up to 2 days to pull the moisture from the electronic parts.

Cracked screen? – If you’ve ever dropped a device and picked it up only to see the cobwebs of cracks, you know this can be a very pricey repair. Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy a new phone. Depending on the model of the device you have, it might be something you can do yourself. Visit to see if there is a guide for your model and to see what replacement screen parts cost.

Does your laptop battery no longer hold a charge? – Rather than take your computer to a repair shop, see if you can find a replacement online. Most laptop batteries can be replaced easily. Remove the battery from your laptop and find the manufacturer and model number, then purchase a replacement from the original manufacturer to make sure the battery is compatible and high-quality.

Flickering laptop display? – If your screen is giving you a headache because it’s flickering rapidly, you may have a loose wire. If closing and opening the screen partway makes the flicker better or worse, that’s likely the problem. First determine how to open your laptop (search for “open laptop + your computer model”). Most laptops have a wire that runs through the hinge and plugs into the display. The other end connects to the circuitry: try disconnecting and reconnecting to see if that fixes the issue.

Natural Ways to Combat Garlic Breath . . .

Garlic breath actually forms in your stomach, so fighting it is tough. You can chew parsley, a natural breath freshener. Try eating ice cream or frozen yogurt for dessert to cool your stomach – warmed garlic releases more gas. Drinking a glass of water with lemon can help neutralize odor and kill bad breath germs.

Have A Laugh — Cheap Parking . . .

A man walked into a bank and asked the manager for a loan.

“How much?” asked the manager. “$4,000 should do it,” said the man. “We’ll need some type of security,” said the manager.
“No problem, here are the keys to my car- it’s the Mercedes in the parking lot,” said the man.

Three weeks later the man returned, paid off the loan, and paid his $60 in interest.

“OK, I have to ask,” said the manager. “We noticed you’re a millionaire when we pulled your information for the loan. Why did you need a loan for $4,000?”

“Are you kidding – $60 for three weeks? Cheapest parking I could find in New York City!” the man laughed.

Real Estate Q & A . . .
Q.  How can I secure a low mortgage interest rate?

A. Securing a low mortgage interest rate helps make your monthly payment more affordable and saves money over the life of your loan. Besides using a larger down payment, here are three things to do to secure a low mortgage interest rate:

  1. Compare multiple lenders and meet with your top three. Review the application process and your credit report to start working on any issues you may have. The higher your credit score, the better borrower you will become. Lenders will review the various loan programs with you.

  2. Your debt-to-income ratio should be below 36 percent before you apply for a mortgage. The lower it is, the greater your eligibility for a decent loan amount.

  3. Don’t make any drastic changes such as changing jobs or making large purchases on credit cards. You want lenders to see you have a stable job history and ability to make the payments.
