How to Choose a New Bed & Mattress

Do I need a new bed? We recommend that an adult should have a new bed every 7 or 8 years. If you are sleeping less well than you used to, regularly noticing back or neck pain on waking, or find yourself rolling into the centre of the mattress, your mattress is almost certainly approaching its use-by date. Look at your frame as well. If you see warped or broken slats or an uneven base, the frame most likely will need replacing too. Do be especially mindful of purchasing a new mattress for a very old base, as this can damage the mattress. If you decide that it is time to invest in a new bed, we offer a complimentary collection service in partnership with the British Heart Foundation, to help rehome your preloved items. Find out more here. What size bed do I need? The primary factor in choosing a new bed will be the size. Generally, bigger is better where beds are concerned, so get out your measuring tape and find out the size of the bed your bedroom will allow. Once you have these dimensions, you will be able to decide on bed and mattress size. We recommend you leave at least 75cm around the edge of the bed frame for access. If you already have a reliable frame in place, check with the manufacturer regarding the mattress size. The mattress should fit snugly inside the frame. If you are purchasing a new bed from The Conran Shop, please check in the Details section of the website to give you information regarding the correct mattress size. In some cases, you will need to have a mattress made specifically for your frame. If in doubt, please call our Customer Services team who will be able to advise you on what to do next. Did you know? A British winter would be unimaginable without a warm duvet. And yet, this fantastic innovation in bedding was absent from in the UK until the early 1960s, when none other than Terence Conran began selling Britain's first duvets in his London King's Road shop. The Conran Shop's exclusive sleep collection comprises single, double, king and super king duvets in two distinct and seasonally appropriate densities, standard and firm pillows, and pure linen and stonewashed cotton bedding to add the ultimate finishing touch to any of our mattresses and beds. Our deluxe 13.5-tog winter duvet is perfect for the chilliest climes, while the 9-tog lightweight summer edition is invaluable for sleeping through restless spring-summer nights. Each luxurious duvet boasts neat octagonal chambers sewn into 100% super cambric cotton casing and is packed full of eco-friendly and ethically sourced goose down from quality-assured farms tucked away in the Austrian mountains. Meanwhile, each hand-selected piece of bedding is woven in Europe from high-quality 100% linen or flax-fibre yarn, for a naturally breathable finish that stays cool and crisp in summer and warming in winter. Each pillowcase, duvet cover and sheet is washed in soft water once complete to award it a supremely tactile finish that grows softer with every wash, allowing for unparalleled comfort all year round. No bed is complete without a top-quality mattress. Our collection is painstakingly hand-finished in England using time-honoured techniques by Harrison Spinks' talented craftspeople. The only bed manufacturer in the world with its own farm, its scientific innovation ensures that each model is completely state-of-the-art. Each mattress is constructed, woven and blended from locally sourced Yorkshire wool. Available in medium and firm tensions, our mattresses are filled with pesticide-free natural hemp, silk-like mohair and Egyptian cotton padding. Expertly engineered to promote an outstanding night's sleep, each mattress is enriched with innovative layers of four, eleven or sixteen thousand ultra-fine wire micro-springs which sit above the typical core spring unit - ensuring more comfort than any other mattresses of their kind. Mattress tension provides support for your body weight, alignment for your spine and comfort when sleeping, and as such it must not be overlooked. The first job of a good bed is to support the body's natural posture during sleep, taking over as muscles relax. Without proper support, you may wake up with aches and pains. With the right tension, your spine is straight and your whole body is evenly supported as you sleep. Too soft, and your spine will buckle, putting pressure on your hips. Too firm, and the pressure will be felt around the shoulders and knees. There is no single best mattress tension that suits everyone. It will depend on your body type, and on how you sleep. In order to ensure your mattress tension is right for you, the best thing to do is come to one of our stores and give it a try.

1. Does drinking too much water cause weight gain?

nope it doesnt it actually makes you lose more weight especially if you drink like 3 glasses befor bed!

2. Help with mild acne?

Oxy pads are very effective. Use one at night before bed then in the morning rinse your face with Biore pore refining cleanser

3. Going out tonight.. what are some good alcoholic drinks that arent too strong?

All alcoholic drinks are pretty much strong. Stay away from anything that is brown. and drink water in between every other 3rd drink. If you keep drinking all night you will wake up with a really bad hang over. There is nothing like waking up to the toilet. Drink at least 4 glasses of water before you go to bed and eat crackers or toast. soak up the alcohol

Taking a Cruise in the Lazy Land of Blue Lagoon
By LENORE MAGIDAAPRIL 28, 1991 This is a digitized version of an article from The Times’s print archive, before the start of online publication in 1996. To preserve these articles as they originally appeared, The Times does not alter, edit or update them. Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems. Please send reports of such problems to archive_feedback@nytimes.com. ON Saturday around lunchtime, the sun came out, and suddenly everything sparkled. The sea glistened. Our white-and-blue ship, the Yasawa Princess, gleamed at anchor off the little island of Nanuya Lailai. For two days, with 46 passengers and a crew of 20, we had been cruising through the Yasawas, a group of 16 main volcanic islands and dozens of smaller, mostly uninhabited ones just northwest of Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji. With a few brief breaks, our weather had been -- well, we'd seen some weather. We'd been drenched, rocked, buffeted and forced to change schedule for one day of our four-day itinerary, forgoing the northernmost leg of our trip -- the part that would have taken us to Yasawa-I-Rara, which we'd heard described as the most spectacular beach in the South Pacific.Oddly, perhaps, none of that had mattered much at the time -- and it certainly didn't now. For now we were doing what we'd all come for: basking under a South Pacific sun, letting aquamarine waters lap at our feet, strolling the sandy beach hunting unusual shells -- and waiting, with not a shred of impatience, for our beach barbecue lunch to be ready. Some (especially, it seemed, the honeymooners among us) just lolled on beach mats. Others tested their sailboarding skills or took one of the ship's launches to the best snorkeling spot in the area. I spent a euphoric hour on a wave ski, a kayak-surfboard hybrid, paddling with the breeze and even catching a few minuscule waves.We were on one of the tours offered by Blue Lagoon Cruises of Lautoka, Fiji. If the name Blue Lagoon sounds cinematically familiar, you're right: the two films of the same name, one in 1949 with Jean Simmons and the other in 1980 with Brooke Shields, were filmed at the Yasawas' Turtle Island, today a deluxe resort. But there's more of a link than that: a New Zealander named Trevor Withers assisted on the Simmons film and adopted its name when he started his one-boat cruising project in 1950. Nowadays Blue Lagoon has six ships -- not ocean-liner luxurious, but well-equipped and casually comfortable. The vessels leave pretty, tree-lined Lautoka 10 times a week, at least once every day, to cruise the idyllic Yasawas.The ships are of modest size, with appointments that are generally adequate. These are not the ships to be on if you want an on-board swimming pool or dining facilities worthy of the finest on-shore restaurant. Cabins, all with private bathrooms with showers, can accommodate three; most have a double bed with a single top berth, though some have twin lower berths and a top berth. All are outer cabins with a porthole or window. Closet and bathroom space are limited, and the cabins don't have a lot of moving-around space (although that situation improves in the Club Cruise ships' bridge-deck cabins, the most expensive). On the Yasawa Princess, in the cabins and especially the common areas, my impression was that furnishings had been chosen but for functionality and ability to withstand the South Pacific weather.AdvertisementMeals on the cruise were at minimum satisfactory, even to the passenger on our cruise who is executive chef at a large hotel. Generally we far preferred the buffets that emphasized simple, fresh preparations over the two more formal dinners we were served on board. Dessert was always fresh fruit; the galley crew saved the cakes for our morning and afternoon teas.AdvertisementThere were a few key complaints. First, despite frequent spraying, the cabins tended to have quite a few tiny roaches, the kind that are about a quarter-inch inch long; the passengers understood that trying to purge insects in the tropics is at best difficult, but they still wanted the pests gone. Second, the new towels we were given each day tended to be a bit musty, as though they'd been taken out of the dryer a few moments too soon. Third, at least one time -- when all of us seemed to be taking showers after a snorkeling excursion -- the water completely petered out. And, finally, the coffee was barely more than hot brown water.At least among the group I was with, however, the complaints and limitations were far from serious. Our cruise members, who collectively had a great deal of travel experience, had a fine time with Blue Lagoon.The charms of the Yasawas are considerable, even if you end up seeing some of them through the windswept rains that roll in between November and April , with January through March the rainiest months. (The driest months are June through September.) Some are generic tropical-paradise charms, though surely no less beautiful for that: tall palms fringing curving beaches, green peaks rising gently from blue ocean, stupendous skies as the sun sets through layered streaks of clouds.Exploring the islands reveals some more unusual features. The Sawa-I-Lau limestone caves, a stop for all Blue Lagoon cruises, is one, though they seemed more a challenge than a charm for some on our trip. Precarious stone steps led us to a pool ringed by limestone walls some two dozen feet high, and most of us took the chilly plunge -- a jolt after the bathlike warmth of the sea.But that was just the beginning: next we ducked underneath one of those walls and emerged in a pitch-black cavern, where a flashlight-bearing crew member met us for a swim deep into the caves. It was no-sweat fun for some, scary but exhilarating for others, and inarguably memorable.Snorkeling in the Yasawas can provide the exhilaration without the spookiness. Fiji, which brims with coral reefs, is renowned for its snorkeling, but the reefs in the Yasawas have the advantage of being more pristine than those in the more developed tourist areas. The coral is dense and fantastically diverse: you can see varieties that look like flower buds or clusters of shells, like big cabbages or little sausages. The fish are mostly small, but they're vivid: pale green, yellow and black, iridescent blue. And there are large, languid starfish the color of Elizabeth Taylor's eyes.Not all the good times on our cruise happened in the water. On one of the islands we had a delicious lovo feast -- meats and vegetables cooked underground on heated rocks -- well complemented by bottles of Fiji Bitter beer.Please verify you're not a robot by clicking the box.Invalid email address. Please re-enter.You must select a newsletter to subscribe to.View all New York Times newsletters.On our full last day, we visited the lone village on the island of Matacawa Levu, and haggled with the village women selling shells, jewelry and other crafts from an impromptu market on the lawn. That night the same women and other villagers boarded the Yasawa Princess for a performance of Fijian songs and dances, and one of them brought with her, priced at about $2 apiece, the pint-sized grass skirts that a couple of us had asked her that morning to make as gifts for little girls.AdvertisementWe also had a lot of fun among ourselves, due in no small measure to the genial atmosphere the crew created. It's all too easy for someone describing the characteristic Fijian disposition to sink into happy-native language, but it's not accurate: yes, Fijians are cheerful, but at the core there seems to be a sure sense of self -- and self-respect.On our cruise that meant that the crew -- among them Semi, the bluff and bearlike captain; the cruise director Charlie, an eloquent ex-journalist; Sili, the busy but unflappable bartender; and the loose-limbed Semisi, a motorman who showed himself to be a natural performer when he conducted a crew songfest on our last night -- did their jobs quite well and efficiently, but never kept an obsequious distance from the paying folks. They were always ready for conversation or for a raucous poker game -- with or without passengers -- at one of the dining tables.WE also had a good mix of passengers. Australians, who have the shortest trip to Fiji, were the largest single group. There were also quite a few New Zealanders and winter-weary Canadians, a British couple and a Japanese couple who were all living and working in Fiji and four people from the United States.The newlywed couple from New York had made the longest trip, and they found plenty of fellow honeymooners on board, along with a number of veteran couples who described the cruise as their second honeymoon. Aside from two solo women and one man traveling with his teen-age daughter, all the passengers were couples. Of course, it's hard to imagine a more romantic trip than a South Pacific cruise. But it's more than the in-love sort of romance. It's the romance of having, as those of us from North America did, a thoroughly relaxing adventure half a world from home, under a sky full of new constellations. We laughed, sipped Champagne, danced with the captain. We stood hushed as the vil- lagers who had just entertained us fell into fervent prayer. We listened as the crew played guitars and sang Fijian songs, their lilting sound a bit Hawaiian, a bit Mexican. And we kept listening as they kept playing, just for the pleasure of it, as we all drifted off to our cabins to sleep. IF YOU GO The CruisesBlue Lagoon Cruises, Post Office Box 54, Lautoka, Fiji (telephone 61622) offers a four-day, three-night Popular Cruise every day (they last 72 hours), and a Club Cruise of that duration twice weekly.Because the ships on the Popular Cruises are smaller, they don't go as far; chiefly, they don't get to the reputedly most beautiful beach, Yasawa-I-Rara (neither did we, because of weather problems.There's also a seven-day, six-night Club Cruise, which both covers more ocean and lingers longer at various spots. Club Cruise passengers get a few other perks: a welcoming reception, a fruit basket in every cabin, Champagne on the last night and a Blue Lagoon Cruising Club T-shirt and sulu. I was also told that the Club Cruise food is better. The BoatsThe Yasawa Princess and the Nanuya Princess, which are used for the Club Cruises, are 151-foot vessels with 4 decks and 36 cabins. The four smaller craft used for the Popular Cruises -- the Lycianda, Salamanda, Maricanda and Oleanda -- are 118 feet long and have 3 decks and 22 cabins.

Wine Barrel Dog Bed
Owning a pet and trying to create a great looking decor to your homes interior are often contradictory -- where most dog beds seem to 'ugly up the place'. How can you have an amazing looking home with top of the line imported furniture, granite floors, marble counter tops, luxurious Indian carpet, and then have a stinking dog bed sitting in the center of it all One item that can compliment your home's interior incredibly well whilst be beneficial to your pet is a .Wooden Dog Crate This an awesome way of upcycling. A bed made of an old wine cask looks great and will make your pet very comfortable. Your cats will also like them. Wine keg beds for pets are a weekend project for those who are more DIY orientated but you can buy some beautiful, professionally made ones as well. Oftentimes it is actually cheaper to order one premade because the cost will be about the same as if you ordered a wine barrel and paid the shipping fees, then the time and effort spent to actually build it.That being said, if you do have access to a free or low-cost wine barrel in your community then feel free to go ahead and make your own. Also it is a fun project to do and is not very complicated given the awesome array of online materials (where you can use wine barrels to build anything from wooden chandeliers to coffee tables). If you do not have access to an old oak barrel then you can order one already cut and premade into a dog's bed.Wine Barrel Pet Bed By Wine Barrel CreationsAmazon Price: $265.00 $225.00 Buy Now(price as of Sep 3, 2016)There are a lot of different types of dog beds you can buy that are made out of barrels, depending on the barrel (given no two wine casks are the same) and size of the dog. The 2 most common types are ones that use the base of the barrel and are cut lower in front so the dog can have easy access. The other type basically cuts a barrel in half length-wise and then they create a bed out of it. Both types look great. The type you order may be dependent on how large of a dog you have.If your dog is less than 25 pounds then a traditional may be the best choice. This is where the wine barrel is cut width-wise and then an elongated entrance is cut down to allow access to the bed for the dog. These can be made at any height.However, if you have a dog larger than 25 pounds then you may prefer to get a dog bed made with an oak barrel cut in half. It has a drastically looking different appearance from the traditional variety but it can be designed to allow for larger dogs to sleep more comfortably.Building Your Own Oak Barrel Pet Bed Credit: Amazon.com/True FabricationsYou might fancy having a go at building your own and don't have access to an old barrel then you caneasily order one online. In order to save money on shipping you can opt to buy a planter barrel instead of a full-sized barrel. A planter barrel is usually about 27 inches tall so they work great for making dog beds with very little cutting. A planter barrel also ways less so it will be cheaper to order than a full-sized barrel.A wine cask dog bed is very beautiful and will fit into any décor in your home, but most importantly it will provide a comfortable, sturdy and safe place for your to dog to relax and sleep. These beds help to keep your favorite dog off the floor and this keeps the dog warmer in the wintertime and cooler in the hotter summers.

Even if your dog is old and has hip problems he will still be able to easily access the bed and be comfortable in it. These beds are both beautiful and very functional.
Why Are the Lights in the Master Bed and Bath Out and the Rest of the House Is Not Affected?
Why are the lights in the master bed and bath out and the rest of the house is not affected?Sounds like the master bedroom and bath is on a separate circuit to other rooms in the house. It's normal for a home to have several separate circuits. Like the above answers have said, you should check the breakers to make sure it's not something as simple as that. The power going out recently could have caused a surge and flipped a breaker. If that is not the problem then you will need to get a licensed electrician out to assess the problem. As for the inspection of the house, if you can prove that the inspector was negligent in their report AND that you would not have purchased the home had the report stated what ever it turns out is the problem then you MAY have grounds to sue for the cost of repairs.— — — — — —does anyone know a good place to buy bedddings and sheets?bed bath & beyond, but they are not cheap— — — — — —i want to buy a magic bullet but i need more info?have one and its great, you can get it cheaper at bed bath and beyond— — — — — —Chopping garlic......?you could find this at I think bed bath and and beyond.

Making a Dog Bed, How Do I Make It Not Gigantic Pillow Like?
Any fabric store sells foam like that. Check all the ones in your area and choose the one with the lowest price.

Dolce Vita heated dog bed - owner's manual question?I do not have that particular model, but I do have a heated dog bed. The instructions indicate that it should NOT be placed on carpeting, upholstered furniture, etc. It should be on some type of hard, fire resistant surface. It's okay to put it in a dog crate provided it has adequate ventilation, that the crate door be left open and provided there is enough room in the crate for the dog to move to should it over heat. ADD: While the instructions did not say not to leave the house with it on - I never did.

Why?First check the documentation for you motherboard. Sometimes 2 USB share the same port and there is not enough resources to run 2 devices. Go to device manager and click on View and then Show Hidden Devices is the USB ports showing an error? Also you might try a powered USB Hub (not one that uses the computers power)I have a DVD drive on my computer, but I had to do a system restore and it wiped the program for the drive.?Call your manufacturers of your PC and your laptop and discuss ways with them of how to best to do this. You probably should take the desktop back to the place that did the system restore (unless that was you!) and demand that they fix it so that the drive works again. And yes, I think they do make cables with 2 USB ends.I only have 2 USBs so I would have to use a Bluetooth mouse. What is the best Bluetooth mouse for gaming?You actually don't have to, if you're willing to use a hub.I've used 3 BT mice for gaming, one of which isn't really a gaming model:Logitech Anywhere 2S (the non gaming model, which really isn't half bad).Corsair Dark Core (Bluetooth died after a few months use)Razer Atheris (probably the best in terms of performance, haven't had it very long though)I wouldn't recommend the Dark Core, but the other two are both quite good. The Anywhere 2S has multi-device support and is very reliable and compact. It also has a built in rechargeable battery that lasts a pretty long time.The Atheris has a higher DPI sensor and also optional 2. 4 Ghz (the dongle stores in the chassis). It's powered by a regular battery and so far has had pretty good battery life too. I'll admit, the main reason I got it is it also comes in a Stormtrooper edition.I'd say the Logitech wins out if you want to use it for more than one computer, but for just gaming the Razer is superior. A lot of people complain about the quality of Razer's peripherals and I've also had some issues in the past, but I think it's just a hit and miss on QC. If you get a good one, you'll be fine

We've shared our picks for the best mattresses available in a California king size, and highlighted the factors you will want to consider when looking for one. Both king and California king sizes are large and provide enough space for two people to share a bed with each other or with pets and children. People might prefer one size over the other due to their height, sleeping habits, or the dimensions of their bedroom. If you are mattress shopping, you might wonder what the difference is between a standard king size mattress and the California king. The bed sizes are similar, but they vary by a few inches in both length and width. The California king is 4 inches longer vertically and 4 inches shorter horizontally than a standard king. Who it's best for: People who experience aches, pains, and pressure points along the spine Motion-isolating construction is well suited to couples Use this SleepFoundation.org link for the most current discount on Nectar mattresses If you are in the market for a California king size memory foam mattress, we highly recommend the Nectar Premier. This model is constructed with a 3-inch memory foam comfort layer that molds closely to evenly distribute your weight and reduce pressure in sensitive areas of your body. The Premier also provides ample cushioning for side sleepers along the shoulders and hips, which can improve spinal alignment and ease discomfort that often comes from using this sleep position. Transitional and base layers of high-density polyfoam reinforce the comfort layer to help maintain an even surface for your body. The Premium has a medium firm (6) feel and is best suited to side and back sleepers. The comfort layer is also infused with cooling gel and phase-change material to make the mattress suitable for hot sleepers. Motion isolation is another strength of the Premier. The foams absorb movement and prevent it from spreading across the surface, making the mattress a good option for people who wake up easily from their sleep partner's movements. Like other all-foam beds, the Premier is also completely silent. The mattress is fairly expensive compared to other all-foam models, but Nectar will ship it for free anywhere in the lower 48 states. You will receive 365 days to test out the mattress - one of the mattress industry's longest trial periods - along with a lifetime warranty. Read our Full Nectar Premier Review to learn more Who it's best for: Take 25% off your order from Bear. Use Code: SF25 The Bear is an American-made, all-foam mattress designed with Celliant cover fabric to aid in physical recovery. Celliant fabric collects and converts body heat into infrared energy that it then reflects back to the sleeper. This process has been found to decrease physical recovery time and improve physical performance, making the Bear a good choice for athletes and highly active people. Available in one firmness level - firm - the Bear is most fitting for sleepers who weigh more than 130 pounds. Its memory foam layer conforms to the body some, but its transitional and support foam layers give the mattress a responsive feel. The result is a bed that falls somewhere in-between the bounciness of a responsive mattress and the high contour characteristic of memory foam. Couples will find that the Bear isolates motion well, so they are not awoken by each other's movements during the night. Also, being an all-foam mattress, the Bear is virtually silent. Sleepers wo not hear noise in response to their partners getting in or out of bed. Bear offers free shipping to all 50 states, with White Glove delivery and old mattress removal available for an additional price. Bear customers may return their mattress if they feel unsatisfied for any reason after a 30-day break-in period of a 100-night sleep trial. The mattress comes with a 10-year warranty that begins on the date of purchase. The Bear is available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. Read our Full Bear Review to learn more Who it's best for: $300 off a mattress in any size a free sleep bundle (mattress protector, 100% cotton sheets, 2 pillows) valued at $399 with your mattress purchase The WinkBed is a hybrid mattress that features a combination of coil and foam layers. Available in four firmness settings, the WinkBed has options that are suitable for virtually all sleepers regardless of body weight or sleep position preference. Lighter sleepers will prefer the softer WinkBed options, while heavier sleepers will prefer the firmer options. The WinkBed Plus is designed to be able to accommodate sleepers who weigh over 300 pounds. The WinkBed Soft, Luxury Firm, and Firmer options are constructed slightly differently than the WinkBed Plus. All WinkBeds feature a 7.5-inch pocketed coil support core. The first three firmness options have a Euro-pillow top, two polyfoam layers, a layer of foam-encased microcoils, and a cotton lumbar support pad. Instead of these comfort layers, the WinkBed Plus contains one polyfoam layer, a layer of latex, and the cotton lumbar support pad. As a result of the differing constructions, the softer WinkBed mattresses are more conforming than the firmer WinkBed Plus. All WinkBeds are on the responsive side, and none give the sensation of sleeping "in" rather than "on" the mattress. All of the WinkBed mattresses come in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king. They ship for free to the contiguous US. Customers may purchase White Glove delivery for $129, or both White Glove delivery and old mattress removal for $189. WinkBeds also come with a lifetime warranty. Read our Full WinkBed Review to learn more Who it's best for: Those who weigh less than 130 pounds Get $300 off a Puffy Mattress and 2 free pillows. The Puffy mattress is a mixed-foam mattress that's made in the US and known for its pressure-relieving properties. Though the Puffy is somewhat responsive, it primarily gives sleepers the conforming feel of memory foam. The Puffy is a good choice for sleepers who like to feel "hugged" by their mattress. Since it relieves pressure so well, it's also a good choice for sleepers who tend to experience pain. The Puffy mattress is available in one firmness level, which is medium. Lighter individuals weighing under 130 pounds find the most comfort in the Puffy mattress. Some sleepers over 130 pounds, especially those who prefer to sleep on their sides and stomachs, will also like the Puffy. It excels at promoting spinal alignment for side sleepers. Most sleepers weighing over 230 pounds will want to opt for a firmer mattress than the Puffy. They might find themselves sinking in too deeply or feeling unsupported on this bed. Of course, personal preference influences mattress choice, and some heavier sleepers who prefer soft mattresses might be happy with the Puffy. Customers in the contiguous US receive free delivery from Puffy, and those in Alaska or Hawaii can purchase the bed for an additional fee. The Puffy mattress comes with a 101-night sleep trial and customers can make returns after a required 14-night break-in period. The Puffy mattress is available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. Read our Full Puffy Original Review to learn more Who it's best for: Back and stomach sleepers weighing at least 130 pounds 30% off any mattress with this code: AS30 25% off pillows, sheets, and protectors with this code: MD25 15% off blankets, toppers, and seat cushions with this code: MD15 The AS2 Hybrid builds on the original design of its predecessor, the all-foam AS2. This mattress contains a comfort layer of Bio-Pur memory foam, a dense and durable proprietary material that provides moderate contouring. A zoned transitional layer reinforces the Bio-Pur. This component provides enhanced support where people tend to carry extra weight and softer cradling for lighter areas, resulting in the right amount of give from head to toe. The AS2 Hybrid is medium firm (6), making it the second firmest hybrid in Amerisleep's current lineup. Thick pocketed coils and a layer of high-density base foam make up the support core. These materials provide excellent stability, especially along the edges where sinkage can occur when you get in and out of bed. The coils also promote steady airflow to help the mattress sleep cool and offset some of the Bio-Pur's heat-absorbing qualities. Since the AS2 Hybrid is on the firmer side, the mattress is best suited to people who weigh at least 130 pounds - back and stomach sleepers in particular. Like other Amerisleep mattresses, the AS2 Hybrid is backed by a warranty that covers structural defects for up to 20 years. Your purchase will also include a 100-night sleep trial. Ground shipping is free within the contiguous U.S. Who it's best for: Reversible design with a distinct feel on each side Zoned pocketed coils protect the edges without making the mattress too stiff Get up to $200 in free products with every mattress purchase The Layla Hybrid is a standout choice for California King shoppers due in part to its reversible design. Both sides of the mattress are cushioned with memory foam. One surface has a thicker comfort layer and a medium soft (4) feel, while the opposite side's surface has less foam and feels firm (7). Each side has unique strengths. The softer surface excels at motion isolation and pressure relief, and should be most comfortable for people who weigh less than 130 pounds. The firmer side feels more support for people who weigh more, especially back and stomach sleepers. A layer pocketed coils is sandwiched in the middle and serves as the bed's support core no matter which surface you use. These coils are zoned to reinforce the edges against sinkage without compromising your comfort with excessive firmness. The coils also help the mattress remain temperature neutral by circulating air throughout the interior. For added breathability, both memory foam layers are infused with copper, which has natural cooling properties and also provides antimicrobial protection against harmful bacteria. The Layla Hybrid's price-point is in line with the average hybrid model, but all customers in the lower 48 states will receive free ground shipping with their order. The mattress is backed by a 120-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty. Read our Full Layla Hybrid Review to learn more Who it's best for: People who prefer the "hug" of memory foam Well suited to lighter and average-weight sleepers Save up to $800 on a Nolah mattress The Nolah is an all-foam bed available in one firmness level, which is medium. Nolah excels at pressure relief, making it a good choice for people who experience pain. Although the Nolah is very conforming, its "AirFoam" technology ensures sleepers will not feel like they are sinking too far into bed. The firmness level of the Nolah mattress is best suited for sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds. Side sleepers tend to enjoy the Nolah the most, finding it promotes spinal alignment. Overall, more sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds tend to prefer the Nolah compared to those who weighed more, some of whom might want a firmer bed. Sleepers who weigh over 230 pounds might also prefer a firmer mattress and find that the Nolah cannot provide the support they need. Couples sharing a bed will find that the Nolah isolates motion well. When one person rolls over or gets in or out of bed, little of their motion will transfer across the surface of the bed. Like most all-foam beds, the Nolah is also quiet. Nolah only ships to the contiguous US, and shipping is free. Their mattresses come with a 120-night sleep trial and a 30-day required break-in period. The Nolah warranty lasts 15 years. Nolah partners with the nonprofit organization Defenders of Wildlife to "adopt" endangered animals. This unique program allows customers to choose from one of 20 endangered species, knowing that their purchase helped save an animal's life. Read our Full Nolah Original Review to learn more Who it's best for: Phase change material keeps the bed cool all night Get 25% off your order 2 free pillows. Use Code: FOUNDATION25 Made in the US, the Ghostbed Luxe is an all-foam mattress with cooling properties. The Ghostbed Luxe is constructed with a cooling cover, memory foam comfort layer, latex-like polyfoam layer, and a support core made of high-density polyfoam. The result is a mixture of contouring and responsiveness, making the Ghostbed Luxe a good choice for people who want both conforming and bounce. The Ghostbed Luxe is available in a medium firmness feel, which is well-suited to sleepers who weigh less than 230 pounds. Most sleepers in this range find that the Ghostbed Luxe provides adequate support and spinal alignment for them. Heavier individuals might require a firmer mattress option. The bed is specifically designed to keep bodies cool throughout the night, so it should not trap heat like many all-foam mattresses do. Its cooling cover has memory foam quilted into it and incorporates phase-change material into its fibers. The "Ghost Ice" layer also contains phase change material, which absorbs heat energy and transforms it into a cooler temperature. The Ghostbed Luxe comes in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king sizes. The bed ships for free to the contiguous US, and for $600 to Hawaii and Alaska. It comes with a 101-night sleep trial, though sleepers must break in the mattress for 30 days before initiating a return. The warranty is prorated and lasts for 25 years.

The best interpretation is that the coworker brings you peaceBed bugs coming from walls?You need to inspect your bed better, if you see the bugs then they are in your mattress, sofa, clothes etc. The whole place is infested more than likely. Little advice before moving have an exterminator come again.Do My Dogs Need A Crate Or A Bed?I have two large breed dogs...each has their own crate that they can nap in or go in whenever they please...and we also have assorted doggy beds in most of the main living areas of our house. I go to Costco and get the beds there...they are large with removable washable covers, and cost about $20. Since they are so cheap. ..I can afford to have quite a few of them scattered in different rooms for the dogs to lay onBed bugs help me please!!?Julia, if you saw one bed bug there will definitely be more, bed bugs can live for one year without even feeding. They can live on air mattresses they can live absolutely anywhere. I agree with throwing out the air mattress but it was probably not necessary to throw out all of the other furniture. I am going to recommend to you the ONLY way to get rid of bed bugs is to hire a professional exterminator. People say OMG that is way to expensive but if you think of the money you will spend on spray's and stuff by the time you realize it an exterminator would have been less expensive in the long run. Bed bugs can hide in electrical outlets, picture frames, behind baseboards and almost anywhere that there is a crack or crevice. If your living in an apartment it is necessary that the entire building be exterminated or they are never gone. Oh Julia before hiring an exterminator I would talk with the building management company, there might be a unit in the building that is already infested and the cause of your problem. In a situation such as that you would not be responsible for any cost that is incurred for the extermination. I live in Edmonton, Alberta. Canada and if that happened here at my building under the same circumstances as yours, if I could prove that it was necessary for me to get rid of my furniture due to someone else having the infestation I would be reimbursed for my costs
Had a Car Accident Lately?
I'd like to put the ... on car ... in a ... ... way, so you can heal ... It makes me angry to see people walk away from one accident only to have another a few years l I'd like to put the spotlight on car accidents in a noncritical, observant way, so you can heal yourself. It makes me angry to see people walk away from one accident only to have another a few years later. As a healer, I don't like to see people in pain. And if you've been in an accident, you know the aftermath of shock, rage and terror, sometimes resulting in post traumatic shock syndrome. Why go through this experience again? Let's get things like this out of our lives. Let's take control of our personal energy. Here's the way. The universe is mental. It responds to you the way you think it will. The laws of physics are neutral. One plus one equals two and if you push your glass off the table it will fall to floor whether you are an average person, an enlightened person, a genius, a two year old in a highchair or eating your last meal on death row. The laws of metaphysics are neutral, too. We study them so we can use them to our advantage. They don't care how they are used. Please understand, in a mathematical universe, there are no accidents. The second principle is, there are no victims of accidents. Everyone is a volunteer. For this reason, I'm going to switch from victim and perpetrator to the projecting driver (perpetrator) and attracting driver (victim). These principles may be new to you but if they're stirring something inside, read on. It's hard to contemplate when one has just been rear-ended, or -- in the case of a woman I know, broadsided nearly to death -- but this is no accident. Instead, this is a highly synchronized meeting of two people on the same wave length at precisely the same moment. What are the odds that the two of you would meet at the exact same moment in time and space? Astronomical, wouldn't you say? You can change your energy. You can be safe on the road, on a plane and in an airport. There is power in what I'm going to tell you. State of mind is what determines our wavelength. Actually, we have two minds: the rational and the higher mind. Normally we operate in the lower mind which has two parts: the negative and the positive. These tellk us why we should and shouldn’t do things but a decision is not forthcoming. It is the higher mind (the creative mind) which really determines our course in life. The higher mind is described in the astrology chart - our human version of it -- by the 9th house. It's called the place of long distance travel and it describes driving on the freeway as against tooling around the neighborhood. It's also the house of meditation because it is the long distance use of the mind -- far seeing, prophetic, intuitive, looking for patterns .... If you drive on the freeway, you're in a meditative state of consciousness at least part of the time whether you realize it or not. To drive on the freeway, we look for patterns and spaces. I've read for many people in my 25 years as an intuitive consultant, astrologer and spiritual teacher/healer. I've talked to people from their hospital bed and I learned a lot about this kind of energy during the years. I have read for a man who wrecked his own car and then totaled the rental car the very next day. He had no insurance and had bought none with the rental. I read for a girl who knew she would someday drive off a bridge and did so. This girl is now in a wheel chair for life. I am writing this article to wake people up! The states of mind I feel put us on a collision course with a projective driver are these: •Repressed hostility, anger or rage •Repressed hostility, anger or rage •Victim mentality •Trying to do more than one thing at a time (multitasking) •Being rushed or being late •Overextended lifestyle •Talking on the cell phone •Separation from self through over activity and busy-ness (super mom) •Living entirely outside the self, causing deep depression, self loathing, self hatred and even self destructive tendencies Let's take a closer look at each of these. •REPRESSED HOSTILITY, ANGER OR RAGE If you aren't expressing your own emotions, someone will come right over and do it for you. Or do it to you, I should say. Some of the "nicest" and "sweetest" people in the world are involved in collisions for this very reason. If they weren't so nice or so sweet, they might have been safer. There are many socially acceptable ways to get out the aggressions we all feel (yes, even the nice and sweet ones). Please pick one and use it regularly. •VICTIM MENTALITY People with victim mentalities are accidents waiting to happen. Why is it the same people are robbed twice, rear ended twice, even raped twice? Get out of the victim position. Go on a victim-free diet for three months. Do not read about, listen to stories about, watch movies or television shows, sympathize with or even think about any people or animals who are victims. If someone tries to tell you a victim story, get up and leave! •TRYING TO DO MORE THAN ONE THING AT A TIME (MULTITASKING) Have you ever tried to rub your head with one hand and pat your stomach with the other? A recent article on MSN Internet revealed that people eat, smoke, read, shave, apply makeup and have sex while driving. Multitasking is becoming a way of life for some people and these are some of the most likely people, unfortunately, I'll peg for accidents in the years ahead. •BEING RUSHED AND IN A HURRY Being rushed and in a hurry already has us out of sync… with ourselves. When we are out of sync with ourselves, we are out of touch with good timing in all matters. Many people who "run late" accompany this habit with a state of mind involving "Why do you do this? When are you going to learn? It's so rude to be late! You are so inconsiderate! Why did you have to make that last phone call? Can't you ever just be on time? …" Stop the chatter. If you're late, you're late. Get there alive. •OVEREXTENDED LIFESTYLE We are holistic beings in spite of ourselves. We are absolutely consistent in our behavior across the full range of our activities. If you doubt this, take some time to observe others first, because it's easier, and then yourself. If someone eats fast and unconsciously, they also drive fast and unconsciously. And their sex is that way too! •TALKING ON THE CELL PHONE Talking on the cell phone is a function of the lower or rational mind. Driving on the freeway, as we know from earlier in the article, is a function of the higher or indifferent mind. These two minds can’t work together. It’s that simple. •SEPARATION FROM SELF THROUGH OVER ACTIVITY AND BUSY-NESS (SUPERMOM) What happens when you have an accident? You wind up flat on your back for awhile, staring at the wall and wondering how this could have happened to you? Well, productively, let's concentrate on the first half of the sentence rather than the last. When was the last time you sat around and did nothing? Accidents happen to many people who are so out of touch it takes a zap from the universe to get them back together with themselves for a little quality time. Many people grow to see their accidents as one of the best things that could have happened because it forced them to stop and think about where they were headed in their lives and to touch in with what's really important, especially in serious accidents where one's whole life flashes before them. Skip the part about the accident and promise that you'll spend mortime with yourself. •LIVING ENTIRELY OUTSIDE THE SELF, CAUSING DEEP DEPRESSION, SELF LOATHING, SELF HATRED AND SELF DESTRUCTION I'm going to tell you a story that will convince you how serious this section is but first, let's review what we know about being true to ourselves. Simply put, nothing is more important than finding who you are and being that person. I or any astrologer can certainly help you with this. Few of us escaped the conditioning of early childhood and school years that may have encouraged us to ignore our true selves and conform to family or society's expectations. As adults, we want to uncover our authentic selves. The astrology chart is the most faithful blueprint I know for revealing the authentic self. Not only is it the most stressful thing in the world to try to be something we're not (and I mean this neutrally not critically), it is offensive at some level to the part of us that is whole. There is something in us that, when split off from our whole self, revolts and takes revenge. When I first began reading, 25 years ago, I had a client who often called with what were very insignificant problems but I knew something was brewing in the background. Her calls were about the brand new home which had a few little deficiencies. Her husband was slow in putting in the new sod. And her sister-in-law was very depressed although she, too, had a wealthy husband, new home and was expecting a second baby in a few months. This client didn't call very often and would limit the calls to these few items. I never had a chance to get very far with her. One day much to my horror she called to tell me her sister-in-law had been hit head on by a semi. She and the baby (in utero) were killed instantly. Policemen deal with people at a very basic level just like psychics and intuitive consultants. TI mean by this that people will lie on Gallup polls and psychological research interviews but not in situations where police and psychics find them. Police call this sort of thing in their line of work, "suicide by cop", a phenomenon which I expect from O. J. Simpson one of these days. He has Saturn in the 12th house. Be that as it may be, this young woman found a tragic way out of her predicament. Was this her fate? No! She could have healed herself. But sometimes -- and I say this with more love in my heart than many people can feel for themselves at certain times -- they would literally rather die than change. If you are desperately unhappy in your life, your marriage, your job, there is a projective driver who will subconsciously drift to that energy and fulfill your deadly wishes. This is a horrifying and very real possibility. Please wake up! You can heal yourself. When we are as depressed as this young woman, something wants to die, yes, but it does not involve the physical body. We are dying to old ways to thinking, believing, acting. Perhaps we are dying to a whole way of life. Or our old way of life has died. But it is a psychic death that is taking place. None of this is meant to involve the physical body Here are some astrological energies that are associated with car accidents. Remember that you always have free will as to how you use these energies. •MARS/URANUS Mars in square or opposition to Uranus is the "accident prone" aspect. Usually the person is moving too quickly for circumstances. Also these people react poorly to being boxed in by traffic. •GEMINI PLANETARY ENERGIES Gemini planetary energies means having Gemini prominent in your chart (Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn) or having important placements like the Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn in your 3rd house. A recent Survey by SunCorp which studied 160,000 accident claims over a three year period by sun sign showed Geminis as the worst drivers. They speculated this was because Geminis are distracted and impatient when things move too slowly. •TAURUS AND PISCES PLANETARY ENERGIES Pisces and Taurus planetary energies means important placements such as Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn in one of these signs, or in the 2nd or 12th houses. Taurus and Pisces are the two archetypal energies that tend most to live in their own little world. This is lovely and fine when you're home cleaning the garage, washing the car, balancing the checkbook, watching your favorite video or writing in your journal. Driving on the freeway is an extremely complex social and abstract conceptual activity which also involves hand/eye coordination. •LIBRA PLANETARY ENERGIES Libra planetary energies means important placements such as Sun, Moon, South Node or Saturn in Libra or in the 7th house. These energies often present passive aggressive personality dynamics (seething with resentment?) that is very attractive to projective drivers. •PLUTO ON THE NORTH NODE Pluto on the North Node or by transit is always a little bit tricky. If you're looking for a way out of the responsibility of living your authentic life -- it is rigorous and difficult to be thoroughly alive -- Pluto has a seductive side to it. It has a way of darkly fulfilling idle and foolish wishes through the powers of the subconscious. I have seen people live through amazing accidents only to die in a very mundane way at the next possible opportunity. Presumably, this was their wish. Pluto invites transformation and does not necessarily mean to involve the physical body but sometimes there is a misunderstanding in the ego of the individual. Tow truck drivers, like policemen and psychics, interact with people right after extreme car accidents. I once had a revealing conversation with a tow truck driver who was driving me back to my house. We passed a stretch in the road where there have been many fatal accidents. We both agreed that there was a black hole kind of energy which gathered around places where fatal accidents had occurred and which actually began to build up. "Dead Man's Curve" was a popular song when I was a teenager. The grim reality is that if you pass through one of these places while you are unconscious, you can be pulled off into the void. Please don't be alarmed by this reality. If you're alive to read this article, you've already driven safely through at least one of these places. Always drive alert and always give yourself a reason to be alive. If you are unhappy in any area of your life, do something about it, no matter how difficult. I’ve given several important things not to do , now I’ll give you two important things always to do: •give yourself a reason to live; and •stay conscious to that fact.
