Satellite Internet is Just As Good As Cable Internet

I have only had cable Internet before, but that was not going to be an option where I was moving to in Houston. I basically had two choices, and I was not familiar with either one. I did an online search for dial up and satellite Internet in Houston so I could learn about both of them to see which one would be the better option for me. As soon as I started reading about the dial up option, I knew that I would not be happy with it. The only way to really make it work would be to have a second phone line, and I just can’t see justifying that expense when there are other options available.

I looked at satellite Internet next, and I was really impressed with everything that I read about it. I thought that it was going to cost a lot more because it is sometimes the only option for a lot of people, but their prices are extremely reasonable. Continue reading

My Dog Has a Big Problem

I am not sure how big of a deal this is, but I have been looking around on the web to figure out the answer to the problem. It is not a very delicate matter, but I am going to talk about it because it is pretty worrisome and I am hoping that it goes away very soon. What do you give a dog that has diarrhea? I have been trying to figure out what I should do or if in fact I should not do anything. It has been going on for a couple of days, but Tiny is still a puppy and based on what I have read that makes them really susceptible to this sort of problem. Their systems are not yet fully developed and because of that any small change in diet can lead to this sort of thing.

In fact Tiny does not look much like a puppy, he is quite large. His father was a Tibetan Mastiff and his mother was also a very large dog. Continue reading

Most Portable Vaporizers on Market

I really want to get on the whole vaporizer bandwagon when it comes to smoking my herbs, as I think it is better for your health in the long run. I am not going to give up smoking herb anytime soon, as it really helps me to manage pain. I think more people should be willing to accept that it has medical benefits, as opposed to trying to demonize it. The latter is really not very productive for our society. I am checking out right now, because it is a site tha that has a lot of different vaporizers on it.

I want to figure out which one would be best for my particular needs. Continue reading

About Ramesh Ferris

Ramesh Ferris was born in December 1979 in Coimbatore, located in the Southern  He contracted polio at age six months and his legs were left paralyzed for life. With no means or access to rehabilitation for him, Ramesh’s mother placed him in Families for Children, a Canadian-founded orphanage, a year later. Soon after, Ron Ferris, Anglican Bishop of Yukon in Canada, and his wife Jan began the lengthy process to adopt Ramesh and bring him over to Canada. With the support of his new Canadian family and after several operations, Ramesh learned to walk with crutches and braces for the first time at age 3.5 years.

Since 2001, after graduating with his diploma in Social Work from Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario, he has been active in his community working with at-risk youths, social welfare recipients and people of varying abilities. In recognition of his work with youth, Ramesh was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship in February 2008 by the Whitehorse Rendezvous Rotary Club. In 2002, Ramesh returned to India to meet his biological mother and to visit the orphanage where he once lived. During the visit, Ramesh learned of polio survivors who, without the necessary medical attention and supports, were forced to pad their knees with cut-up pieces of tire and crawl on the ground.

After much reflection about his visit to India, Ramesh was determined to raise from claiming new victims. Cycle to Walk Canada was born, with a focus on Polio Eradication, Education and Rehabilitation. In 2008, Ramesh hand-cycled 4400 miles (7140 kms) across Canada. Along the route, he participated in 350 media interviews and made over 200 presentations at schools, Rotary clubs, churches and various levels of government. This campaign raised thousands of dollars and increased the awareness of polio dramatically.

Ramesh is a Rotarian with the Whitehorse Rendezvous.

In April 2010 Ramesh released his first book entitled, Better Than a Cure, One Man’s Journey to Free the World of Polio. Books are available for $19.55 online at, proceeds benefit Rotary PolioPlus for a Polio Free World.

Ramesh features on the speaking circuit in India, The United States of America, Puerto Rico, Australia, and throughout his home country of Canada, talking about his experiences surviving the effects of this dreadful disease and the need to end polio now. Ramesh has had opportunities to share the Message of Polio Eradication to delegates of the Rotary International Convention 2010 in Montreal, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, The Secretary of Puerto Rico, Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin, and to delegates at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.

It’s predicted by the World Health Organization that if the World fails to eradicate polio, an additional 10 million children will be paralyzed over the next 40 years!

Ramesh looks forward to talking with you and sharing his personal journey of surviving polio and invites you to join in the efforts of making our global community polio free!
