Burned By U-Haul, Anne Looks To NUTRIBULLET For A Speedy Recovery

Introducing NUTRIBULLET, an affordable kitchen must-have guaranteed to help you pulverize your way to good health. I know, the name NUTRIBULLET is hardly a peaceful name in our war-weary world, hype-heavy world. The last thing we need is bullets in the kitchen, unless the NRA is your guardian angel.

The Health Benefits of Garbage

NUTRIBULLET delivers nourishment, more high-quality nutritional content than any other appliance in your kitchen, making it a culinary beauty with near goddess qualities. NUTRIBULLET is significantly different than your current kitchen blender. The machine pulverises the stems, seeds, skins — everything we tend to thrown away — when making shakes in blenders.

While I’m not a certified nutritionist, it’s common knowledge by those of us trying to eat a healthy diet that great nutrients live in what is often considered garbage. Let’s stop throwing our good health away, adding those garbage dispoasl foodstuffs to our high-nutrition shakes.

I came to read about NUTRIBULLET in a round-about way, thanks to U-Haul.

Burned Badly By U-Haul

2014 was singularly the most difficult year of my life, beginning with my best friend and business partner’s savage bout with kidney cancer. The list of problems associated with his death don’t belong in this article, but they touched every piece of my life, resulting in a six-month sabbatical from my beloved Anne of Carversville.

Thinking the worst was over, I prepared to return to a more normal existence in August 2014. Unfortunately life had more reality checks in store for me in the form of a U-Haul truck. 

The excruciating burn injury that I endured driving this improperly maintained U-Haul truck to move my GlamTribale jewelry and gift business materials took me out of 4” stilettos, landing me barefoot with second-degree burns over most of my right foot.

U-Haul considers my second-degree burns and hobbling around for three months with my right side completely out of alignment due to severe swelling to be no big deal. Yes, yes, they have pictures in abundance — photos of the entire surface of my right foot toes to ankle covered with massive blisters; photos of the infection that set in as my doctor feared would happen; photos of the permanent scarring.

Scarred For Life, U-Haul Says It’s My Problem

Apparently U-Haul really plays hardball with any kind of fair insurance settlement. I asked for $5000, a pittance frankly after what I went through. The company has offerred $1000 and doubled that last week, giving me new respect for personal injury lawyers.  A settlement rep hammered me for about two hours last Friday morning, putting me on hold twice to take other calls.

Of course I hung up, feeling like I was beaten down in the midst of a hostage negotiaiton and telling Tom that I had never felt more manipulated in a customer service conversation — ever in my life.

My body — in agony first with both the burn and then trying to walk around so out of alignment with a swollen leg and bandaged foot — told me that the U-Haul paperpusher relaying those unsympathetic back to me had never driven one of the company’s trucks with about 150-degree engine heat blasting on the accelerator pedal.

With a long career in Fortune 100 business — and at a high level — I’ve never seen worse customer service in my life. Anne doesn’t recommend U-Haul ever, ever, ever.

Returning to a dedicated exercise and nutrition program at the end of October, my body had definitely degenerated in months of being unable to exercise or go to the gym. As always, Anne remained determined to get her healthy body back — with or without any help from U-Haul.

Nutrition & Muscle Health

As I rang in the 2015 New Year, kissing 2014 goodbye with a huge sigh of gratefulness, regaining painfree, full-use of my right leg was top of mind. The significant and permanent scarring on my right foot was a must-live-with. The rest was fixable in my opinion.

Armed with exercises from my doctor and others from my former trainer, there was a big miss in the 2015 New Year rehab program.  Any knowledge about nutrition and muscle health was not in my bucket of health resources. Fixing this knowledge deficit was now a top priority.

Putting A Bullet In My Kitchen

This muscle health focus quickly took me to NUTRIBULLET, and how to benefit from the extraordinarily healthy nutrients in organic yam skins and beet greens, both top sources of the critical potassium needed for muscle health. 

Committed to protein shakes for years, my focus turned now to new health drinks and shakes that maximize body functioning without a lot of time in the kitchen. Like most American women, I love to cook but can’t justify the time most days.

The idea of a speedy NUTRIBULLET in my kitchen looked more interesting with each new research reed. 3800 Amazon reviews giving it a 4-star rating are impressive. Let me study the reviews this weekend and share any NUTRIBULLET drawbacks with readers, before pushing the ‘send’ button for myself.

It seems reasonable, though, that NUTRIBULLET isn’t the #3-#5 item in all of Amazon Kitchen without selling bunches of them. For now, I have great visions of pulverizing all my anger and frustration over being burned by U-Haul with healthy, Anne-friendly yams and beet greens, one swift, sharp NUTRIBULLET blade at a time.

Sigh! Writing can be such wonderful therapy! ~ Anne

Colombian Artist Diana Beltran Herrera's Bird Stamps Bridge Humanity & Modernism

Colombian artist Diana Beltran Herrera is working on a new project inspired by her bird sculptures. In the case of Beltran’s bird stamps, these delightful creatures are jumping into our new world.

The idea behind these works was to approach a new place through her small images, as they’re made on a much larger scale. They’re real stamps she has been collecting over the past two years. These stamps are from countries she’s lived in (Colombia), and from countries her friends are currently living in.

Like so many women artists today, Herrera laments the considerable distance in the relationship between humans and nature, and her art seeks to repair this distance.

Personally, I have a tremendous fond spot in my heart for Colombia, SA — the first country I travelled to outside of America in the drama-filled existence that can be my life. Shakira is one of the founding muses for Anne of Carversville and GlamTribale. Read on: Shakira, a Smart Sensuality Activist, Takes Me Back to Colombia, Where My Life Journey Really Began.



Vik Muniz New 'Album & Postcards from Nowhere' At Hong Kong's Ben Brown Fine Arts Gallery Jan-Mar 2015

Postcard collage artist Vik Muniz presents his second solo exhibition at Ben Brown Fine Arts in Hong Kong from Jan. 16-Mar. 4 2015. From Ben Brown the website:

The exhibition features his recent Album and Postcards from Nowhere series for which the artist obsessively collected vintage photographs and postcards and then shredded and collaged these highly intimate relics to create bold new imagery magnified to a staggering scale.  The works offer a meditation on the personal versus the collective, the precious versus the ephemeral, nostalgia and modernity.

The current series is just one example of Vik Muniz’s startling use of diverse materials in his image-making. In 2014, the artist employed toys, diamonds, industrial garbage and minute magazine clippings in a show called ‘Poetics of Perception’ at Virginia MOCA.
