Regardless of your background, there is a universal bit of wisdom -- the proverbial old wives tale-- that says "If you've got your health, you've got everything."

Cranky has survived a broken neck -- once in a traffic accident, twice more from corrective surgery gone bad -- and has overcome temporary paralysis three times. Initially,there was a paraplegic state, which robbed us of everything from the waist down. Post corrective surgery, blood clots attacked my spinal cord and left me quadriplegic, for a very brief time. Emergency surgery to suck blood clots off my spinal cord was successful, though I spent months with no physical control over the muscles of the right side of mybody.Two total years of surgery and six or seven of intensive rehabilitation therapy later, you wouldn't know I was hurt as badly as I was -- though my case is legendary among the neurological community.

Prior to the accident and all the medical crap which followed, I had not lead a sparklng clean life.Granted, compared to some of the folk I met in the long term care wards at the hospital, I had been very lucky in terms of what care I did take.

Two years later, this befoe another six years of outpatient therapy, I walked out of the hosppital with a new nickname == "the Miracle Boy'" == and a bill for well over 250,000dollars.

What has this to do with you, my long term reader? It's simple. Holidays are coming. the greatest grind on the emotion and spiritual aspects of your personality.Some folks livefor the end of year parties and get blotto on booze and dope and let the hangover play out during January.Let me suggest something else. Somethihng for you. SOmething you can provide as gifts for others which will make you look like a wise and caring friend/ lover/ husband or wife or partner andit sure won't cost you anythihng close to the quarter million bucks I've been paying off. It wil cost about forty bucks and, if it works for you as well as it has worked for me, youwill find yourself proclaimed hereo to all you know.

It is a vitamin supplement Cranky is endorsing. True, there are others which will try to hook you in by giving t he first mnth a way free as long as you pay for postage. Once you get past that "freebie" you'll be paying twice what the product will cost you.Cranky asks that you consider t rying the system for one month. That will cost about forty bucks. With Christmas and Chanukah and Kwaanzaa coming, make a number of presents andIF YOUR gift recipients decide that they feel so great they want to consider paying to continue the system, you get a small commission for bringing then into the program, It is not a pyramid scheme. Any one can stop at any time for whatever reason. Even if (they) participate for only one month, they will find a major, healthy boost to their biologicalsystem.

You have questions. We have answers .We also have a very sijmplee formw hich will get you started in the system that made my life worth living, after eghteen years of nonstop, spinal cored generated, agonizing pain. For 40 bucks, what is there to lose?

Go rto this site : (WWW.ARMAGE3DDON.COM)

Read the fine print. The site, which is not affiiateed by Cranky Critid,, re is a FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. It the system truly does not work for you, then it comes out of my pocket because I get paid for endorsing and supporting you. After eleven years of writing this column, I feel like an uncle. I get called a moron for hating certain films you may like. I get thanked profucsely when I CSWell, I'm making a recommendation now. Try the supervitamin for a month by clicking to [URL OF SITE and instructions]. Try it for yourself. GIve a month as a holiday present . . Booze is good but good booze-free healthy is more important.

As I take the a couple of weeenext three months off to preapare for the uncoming christmas Oscarwannabee attack, you can get started with a low cost program which works. Try it.If it doesn't work, son't make an endo-of-the-ear donation to support t he siete. If it does work, well, buy sets for your friends via this site. We get a small piece and it keeps us from constant begging.

We love y'all. Your support, good or bad, means the workd. Let us move into the next year as healthy adversaries or allies. Pure and simple. Godo bless.
