Well it’s not Spring yet, but the year is moving on rapidly. Happy Saint Patty’s Day. I have a question for you. “Why would you never WANT TO iron a 4-leaf clover?” The answer is simple. “You don’t want to press your luck.”
“COOL FACTS ABOUT…”

- The harp is the symbol of Ireland. The color green is also commonly associated with Ireland, which is also known as “the Emerald Isle.”
- The Irish flag is green, white and orange. The green symbolizes the people of the south, and orange, the people of the north. White represents the peace that brings them together as a nation.
- The name “leprechaun” has several origins. It could be from the Irish Gaelic word “leipreachan,” which means “a kind of aqueous sprite.” Or, it could be from “leath bhrogan,” which means “shoemaker.”
Fun Facts about Clovers
- According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the highest number of leaves found on a clover is 14. (Hard to believe huh?)

>>>JOKE of the MONTH<<<
Joe the lawyer died suddenly, at the age of 45. He got to the gates of Heaven, and the angel standing there looked at him and said, “We’ve been waiting a long time for you.” “What do you mean,” he asked, “I’m only 45, in the prime of my life. Why did I have to die now?” The angel replied, “45? You’re not 45, you’re 82.” “Wait a minute. If you think I’m 82 then you have the wrong guy. I’m only 45. I can show you my birth certificate.” “Hold on. Let me go check,” the angel said as he disappeared inside. After a few minutes the angel returned. “Sorry, but by our records you are 82. I checked all the hours you have billed your clients, and you have to be 82…”
Do You Have… Disc Lesions
We have 23 discs in our spinal column. A disc is the structure sandwiched between the spinal bones (vertebrae). The disc is made up of a fibrous outer ring and a gel-like center. Discs sit in between the spinal vertebrae and act as a cushion or shock absorber between the bones. They also help the spine curve easily and join the vertebrae together.
Many researchers believe that disc lesions are the single most common cause of lower back pain. Surprisingly, disc wear and tear can manifest as early as your teenage years.
Over the years, the disc begins to loose a little fluid and small lesions, or cracks, begin to form on the outer wall. The soft gel-like center then begins to bulge or push the fibrous outer wall out of shape. The result is called a protrusion.
If the center bulges completely out of the ring, it is called a disc prolapse.
The prolapsed disc can press on the spinal cord or put extreme pressure on the spinal nerves resulting in pain that affects sitting, standing, walking, lifting, urinating, defecating, sneezing, standing, coughing and makes moving nearly impossible. Numbness of the leg or loss of muscular control may also occur in extreme cases.
If you have any of these symptoms, please call this office immediately and discuss your treatment options.
***Amazing FACTS About Your Body***
It is hard to grasp just how small the atoms that make up your body are until you take a look at the sheer number of them. An adult is made up of around (7 octillion) atoms 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
Your FOOT & your FOREARM are the same length. < ———Really they are!
Intelligent people have more ZINC & COPPER in their hair.
When you see blood oozing from a cut in your finger, you might assume that it is red because of the iron in it, just as rust has a reddish hue.
But the presence of the iron is a coincidence.
The red color arises because the iron is bound in a ring of atoms in hemoglobin and it’s the shape of this structure that produces the color.
Just how red your hemoglobin is depends on whether there is oxygen bound to it.

MARCH MADNESS FACTS (for all the basketball fans!)
- There is a correlation between the distance a team travels for a game and the outcome, according to an analysis by the News & Observer of Raleigh, N.C. Over the past 12 years, teams playing within 100 miles won 77 percent of their games. At 250 miles, teams won 69 percent, and teams that traveled 500 miles or more won 46.5 percent.
- The odds of picking a perfect bracket randomly are 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1, or more than nine quintillion to one. (So … you’re saying I have a chance … )
- The No. 16 seeds are 0 for 92 vs. No. 1 seeds. (Well, at least they have a chance of picking a perfect bracket.)
- A No. 16 seed did once take a No. 1 seed, Michigan State, into overtime though, and there have also been two games decided by one point between 1’s and 16’s.
- No. 2 and No. 3 seeds are also a combined 46-2 since 2001.
- Two No. 1 seeds in the Championship game have faced each other five times since 1979.
- The term “March Madness” is a trademark jointly-held by the NCAA and the Illinois High School Association, who battled over it in court. The precedent-setting case created the legal concept of “dual-use trademark.”
- The FBI estimates that more than $2.5 billion is illegally wagered annually on March Madness each year. Less than 4% of that amount is wagered legally in Nevada.
