The Glock 19 Gen 4

I grew thinking I would be an artist and would change the world with my art. I went to art school and completed two years. There I met all sorts of characters that would become friends for life. We smoked doobies and listened to punk rock. The irony is that I dropped out of art school to become a cop. It was sort of an act in trying to get into the psyche of the people we hated in art school. I felt if I became a cop I could better understand how to make society a better place. I would get into the minds of the pigs we so disliked. SO there I was in cadet school learning how to make arrests and what to look for in suspicious people. Then we learnt how to shoot guns. In school we were anti- war and anti- guns but that all changed once I shot one. The gun the Police issue to every officer is the Glock 19. This compact 9mm is a standard in most stations and the reason it so is because they are affordable and durable as hell. I thought I would never like guns and now here I am shooting one with a smile on my face.

The social experiment spanned 2 decades. I retired from the force last spring and throughout my service I strived to correct the corruptness I found in the police force. They called me Serpico in my precinct. I was ok with that Pacino is badass. I came to an understanding that most cops were good people and that at the root of all they do is a sense of duty to their constituents. In every basket there can be bad apples and we certainly had our share but once they were spotted they were soon eradicated. We were issued Glock 19’s and I had one with me every day for a good part of 20 years. Never shot the thing during duty. This was a blessing because I had many fri ends on the force who found themselves in
altercations needing the use of firearms. Some didn’t survive those altercations and my heart goes out to them and their families. There is bad in this world and cops are only trying to do their best to rid it from their neighborhoods. The Glock 19 Gen 4(Check out this review at Gunivore.com) is a decent way to do so. A lot of the characters I came across reminded me of my friends form art school and I was way more lenient than some of my co-workers.

Marijuana was something I used and I knew it wasn’t such a big deal. I think a lot of the problems we have with drugs stems from how we handle it. Force and jail time isn’t the answer. Education is and we need to focus on the importance of getting good grades and wanted to have a positive effect on society at large. This is missing from some many young kids minds. Get smart not made.

Purple Shampoo

 

Kermit said it’s not easy being green. Well, it’s not easy being blonde, either, but you don’t hear me complaining, do ya? Silly frog…

Well, as long as I am opening this up online – yes, it’s true. It isn’t easy being blonde.

One of the issues blondes have, whether natural or dyed, is that of harsh yellow tones creeping up on what is otherwise a mane of golden hair. When this happens, there are a few options. You could re-dye at home or at a salon, but messing too much with your hair within a certain amount of time – even with the best of products – could be potentially harmful. It also costs more money. You could shave it all off. Not your usual go-to method, but it is a practical and functional solution, if not too traditional. Another option is to use purple shampoo (Check out the review on MapleHolistics.com) to target the problematic areas. Ah, now there is a solution which appears to be less expensive, less of a hassle, and which could also serve as a preventive measure in the future. How does it achieve all that? Keep reading.

Violet (purple) and yellow are on opposite sides of the color spectrum, and when you apply violet dye to overly-yellow hair, it cancels the harsher yellow tones out and leaves it looking a lot closer to the original golden blonde color.

Purple shampoo also has its limits. It isn’t as if it will work if the dye is already losing its chemical hold on your hair. Dyes fade. It is their nature, and there is little merit to using purple shampoo on color which is losing its integrity anyway. At that point, it probably would be better to re-dye, either at home or at a salon.

Purple shampoo, like all shampoos and hair care products, comes in different shapes, sizes, brands, etc. You may have to try a few before you find one that fits your scalp and hair type. Once you do, you can then choose to either use it only if you see yellower streaks in your hair, or use it as a preventive treatment once or twice a month. Both of these practices are okay, but don’t overdo anything. Purple shampoo has potent dye in it, so make sure that you are using it as directed.

There is also the option of making your very own purple shampoo. There are different recipes available. All you need is some top tier purple dye, some pure castille soap, and any essential oils of your heart’s desire. Again, there is the idea that different oils work with different kinds of hair and scalp. If you decide to make your own shampoo, start light and small, and see how it affects you. Find a recipe which you can make properly, and get on top of it.

Purple shampoo really got into the mainstream in the 1990’s, and it continues to be a popular solution for brassy blondes. This is a money, time, and hair saver, and it can change your hair care routine for the better.
