There's a bit more response to this video over on the Windy Citizen, a site that I love and is a lot of fun, and I was mildly addicted to a few months back.

Ah, it's so much fun to look at cool apartments, and take photos, however, at the end of the day I'm just a member of the Pipeline Apartment Envy Club which just formed about two minutes ago when I uploaded these photos snapped yesterday as I wandered around in the skin freezing cold and wondered if I am insane to continue this weekly eNewsletter in the winter months.

Not mentioned in the story, but also pictured at right are Beth of The Painted Lady with her dog, Stephanie of vive la femme, and Jean of Grasshopper 510. Once I add archiving I can better link to past stories, but for now I am including this story here as I am linking to it in today's Pipeline if I ever finishing addressing all the edits from Pat who is a rockstar mistake finder and we work well together since I make a lot of them, okay, back to the edits...)

For Immediate Release
WHO: Michelle Ferry of Ferry Acupuncture
WHEN: Saturday, December 5th from 10a to 5p
WHERE: 1630 W. Division at Division Family Chiropractic
INFORMATION: Michelle Ferry of Ferry Acupuncture is pleased to announce $50 acupuncture sessions as an introductory offer for new patients. A Magna Cum Laude graudate from the the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine with a Masters in Oriental Medicine and a Bachelors in Nutrition, Ms. Ferry incorporates a range of holistic servcies and Chinese medicine modalities geared toward a creating natural state of vibrant health, including acupuncture, Chinese herbal formulas, cupping, guasha (muscle manipulation with a smooth tool), electro-stimulation, Tui Na (Chinese massage), moxibustion (heating of acupuncture points), topical liniments and ear seeds/magnets.
A conerstone of Tradtional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture regulates the flow of qi (vital energy) to return the body to a state of balance by inserting hair-thin needles into specific "channels" or "meridians" on the body. It not only treats symptoms, but the root cause of illness as well. Many people barely feel the needles as they are inserted. On some of the most powerfully active points, there may be a slight pinch, which subsides almost immediately. Once the needles are in, patients might notice a tingling or gentle sensation around the area that feels like water trickling. This is called “arrival of qi” and affirms the therapeutic effects of the acupuncture. Most people feel very relaxed during the treatment and energized afterwards. Acupuncture offers a gentle yet powerful option for people looking to address common problems such as asthma, fatigue, and smoking cessation.
As single-sessions are usually between $75-$85, appointments for the introductory $50 acupuncture offer on December 5th are on a first-come, first-served basis; new patients should contact Ms. Ferry to make an appointment and address initial intake questions. Payment in forms of cash, check, or charge are accepted, and patients are encouraged to contact their insurance companies to ask if acupuncture is covered under their plan. People are also welcome to speak to Ms. Ferry about her menu of cost-effective acupuncture and wellness packages.

After consuming a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and then some, I decided I couldn't do the Black Friday Drill as most of America knows it.

That sounds reasonable, doesn't it?
