Mission Accomplished: Bodygroom arrives in Canada

After a year of campaigning on this blog and pleading on customer service phone lines, results are in. Philips has listened. One of their PR-folk has emailed me the following release:


LOOK BETTER NAKED
PHILIPS LAUNCHES BODYGROOM -- OFFERING CANADIAN MEN A MORE CONVENIENT WAY TO TRIM AND SHAVE BELOW THE NECK

TORONTO (Ontario) -- May 22, 2007 -- To help Canadian men maintain a cleaner look and feel, Philips introduces its latest innovation in male grooming complete with an online how-to guide at http://www.philips.ca/c/body-groomers/294285/cat/en/ to help men tend their woolly coats. Just in time for Spring, guys can trim their fur line with the Philips Bodygroom -- an all-in-one body hair groomer for hair removal everywhere below the chin...including those sensitive spots below the belt.

This ultimate manscaping tool offers a better solution than current methods -- Philips Bodygroom is less painful and less expensive over time than waxing; and more precise with fewer nicks and cuts than scissors or blades. With a product this easy and convenient to use, men no longer have an excuse not to look better naked and feel their absolute best.

"Men are becoming increasingly conscious of their body image and until now have resorted to painful or inconvenient hair removal methods to maintain their appearance," says John Nicholls, Marketing Manager of Domestic Appliances and Personal Care, Philips Canada. "With Philips Bodygroom, there is finally an affordable all-in-one solution for Canadian guys to trim and shave unwanted body hair in the comfort of their home."

With warmer months ahead, Philips Bodygroom is an ideal tool for shearing overgrown pelts to show off hard-earned pecs for a beach-ready body and an asset to men who play sports where body hair slows down their game. While keeping a well-groomed body is aesthetically pleasing, it is also essential for hygiene and comfort. Trimming or shaving body hair removes trapped bacteria causing body odour and allows deodorants and sprays to come into direct contact with the skin, leaving the body looking good and feeling fresh. Philips Bodygroom is safe for all body zones including the chest and stomach, back and shoulders, underarms and groin area.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Philips Bodygroom is an easy-to-use body hair groomer designed specifically for men,that effortlessly removes unwanted body hair with the following features:
  • three interchangeable attachment combs allow easy trimming
    of various hair lengths
  • hypoallergenic shaving foil prevents irritation on sensitive skin
    and delicate body parts
  • ergonomic shape also allows easy access to hard-to-reach areas and
    can safely remove hair in all directions
  • 100 per cent waterproof making it safe for use in the shower or even the bathtub
To help educate men on the benefits of a well-groomed body, Philips has launched http://www.philips.ca/c/body-groomers/294285/cat/en/. Log on for a virtual product demonstration and other useful male grooming tips. Beginning in May 2007, Philips Bodygroom is available nationwide at retailers in-store and online for a suggested retail price of $59.99. Please visit www.shaveeverywhere.ca for information on where to buy.

  1. "Which Forex pair and time frame is best to trade" is the frequently asked question and I want do give you the DEFINITE ANSWER.

    Are you expecting that I am going to say something like EUR/USD on 5-minute time frame or GBP/USD on daily...? No, it is not so simple, but SIMPLE ENOUGH we can figure it out!

    The "PROBLEM" is that markets change over time. If GBP/USD was a well trending currency pair a few years ago, today it is another one.

    I actually want to let you know about a SPECIAL TOOL that I use to find the BEST TRENDING PAIRS among all the Forex pairs.

    ==> http://www.forextrendy.com?hfsdtb63546

    The software scans 34 Forex pairs on all time frames from minute to monthly. This way you pick the best trending pair and time frame at the current time.

    The system is running on our powerful computers, so you have nothing to download and install. Just join in and start using it within a FEW MINUTES! Get it on the link below:

  2. Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

    What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

    Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

    Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

    Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

    Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.

    ==> http://www.forextrendy.com?ljsjhd8374h

    By taking signals in the direction of a strong trend you would REDUCE UNNECESSARY LOSSES and increase the odds of winning. You need to know "how well" the market is trending to avoid very short-term trends.

    STOP hunting the market for every potential trade. Pick only the best trending pairs and time frames and DO NOT take any trading signals in the choppy market (unless you know exactly what you are doing).

    Successful traders keep it simple and this is the way how the pros made fortunes in the markets - by trading less and making more.

    To increase the profitability of any system or robot you are currently using, check out this easy and powerful ultimate solution:

Gordon turns four and has questions

Gordon wanted to know where mommy went.

Not what happened to her body, but where SHE went.

We celebrated his fourth birthday this weekend with three gatherings. One at our house with his little friends. One at nana and grampa's house. One in Stratford with the Simpson clan.


The big party for the kids was a success. I'd never planned such an event. Thank goodness for the Internet, where I found a Martha Stewart article that laid out the basics. And thank goodness for Party City, which had a ton of Transformers party stuff ready to buy. I wasn't feeling well, but managed to pull it off. Thanks to sister Shannon and SIL Amy for being the Designated Adults who helped in wrangling and last-minute logistics. G thought the whole event was kind of loud, but he really enjoyed it. And I feel like a winner for making it happen -- some of the other parents even chimed in that they now know what goes into a kid's party, since they were as clueless as me! Great!

Great time at nana&#…

The sweet smell of success (the opposite of that)

Let me lock in the system at warp 2 Push it into systematic overdrive - U know what 2 do - Ween, "Poop Ship Destroyer"
Pardon the juvenile humour off the top, but this journey has been so unreal that I can't help but fall back on laughing in the absence of appropriate things to say.

Amanda's headed for another big surgery this week.

Quick recap of how we got here: She went into hospital in late January to have her ovarian cancer tumours taken out. That surgery ended up taking a foot-long chunk of her colon, so they spliced what was left to her nature-given outlet. Well, that blew apart and she went for emergency colostomy surgery. THAT didn't work, either, as illustrated by our guiding light with the scalpel hand and the silver tongue, Dr. Sugimoto:


The business end of the remaining colon sloughed its way back into her insides and strictured itself off, creating a cul-de-sac with no escape for poop nor gas. They put her on TPN (full nutrition by IV) but let her …

Things get much worse as tumours spread fast

Things crawl in the darkness
That imagination spins
Needles at your nerve ends
Crawl like spiders on your skin

Pounding in your temples
And a surge of adrenaline
Every muscle tense —
To fence
The enemy within - Rush, "The Enemy Within"
We don't know how or why, if there is a how or a why, but Amanda's cancer has woken up and is on the move, double-time. Things have become much worse in the time since the last update.

At that point, the docs had found a couple of spots on her ribs that were causing her pain. They zapped it with radiation to give her some relief.

Since then, things have progressed quickly.

Just after the hospital stay when they were trying to get Amanda's pain under control, docs found more bone metastases in her sacrum (large, triangular bone at the base of the spine) and iliac crest (the big wing-like bone on the pelvis where they harvest bone marrow). More radiation. This time, the radiation hasn't knocked the pain down.
Then she had headac…
