Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome is pain in the jaw joint that can be caused by a variety of medical problems. The TMJ connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the skull (temporal bone) in front of the ear. Certain facial muscles that control chewing are also attached to the lower jaw. Problems in this area can cause head and neck pain, tinnitus, vertigo,  facial pain, ear pain, headaches, a jaw that is locked in position or difficult to open, problems with biting, and jaw clicking or popping sounds when you bite.

Making a 48" Round Walnut TableTop

This will most likely be my last video of 2019! I hope everyone had a great year! This piece was for a local customer that needed a 48" round table top. They provided a nice metal base which paired well with the walnut. I used 6/4 lumber and finished with a thickness of 1.25". The big 16" jointer came in handy and allowed me to break this build into smaller sub panels that could be flattened along the way. The finish for the table is a few coats of shellac followed by a few coats of a matte water-based polyurethane. Thanks for watching!

How to Help your Joint Degeneration, Arthritis & Inflammation - Dr Alan Mandell, DC

The phrase "degenerative changes" in the spine refers to osteoarthritis of the spine. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Doctors may also refer to it as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease.
Osteoarthritis in the spine most commonly occurs in the neck and lower back. With age, the soft discs that act as cushions between the spine's vertebrae dry out and shrink. This narrows the space between vertebrae, and bone spurs may develop.
Gradually, your spine stiffens and loses flexibility. In some cases, bone spurs on the spine can pinch a nerve root — causing pain, weakness or numbness.
Degeneration in the hips and knees are common from taking too much load from excessive weight.

“How to smoke a joint” - from legendary “Taking Off” movie 😂 🤣 😃 😄 😅

“How to smoke a joint” - my (obviously) favorite scene from legendary “Taking Off” movie by Milos Forman made in 1971 (!) about complicated relations between children and parents. In this scene we see a parent gathering where they decided to experiment and smoke marijuana to understand why their kids are so much into it. Watch and have fun!
