I have often wondered how and why certain search terms brought people to my blog from Google. Some of them I can understand, because the search term clearly shows that someone is looking for a gluten free recipe or other gluten free information. Other things, it really gives me a giggle to see the search and where it goes. So, here you go, the 10 top search terms that landed here at Fabgrandma, and the page they landed on:
1. T-shirt quilt Tutorial (this is not surprising. Neither are the next three)
5. And then there is the question, “Is fried shrimp gluten free“. My answer to that, just in case you want to know, is that it depends on what you use to coat, or bread, it with. I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Bisquit and Baking Mix, or, if I have it, I use corn flour, not corn meal.
6. Then there is the question “Where can someone go without insurance to see an emergency room doctor?” To that, I have to say, if it is a true emergency, like if you having a heart attack, or have a broken leg or something like that, just go to the emergency room. They have to treat you whether or not you have insurance in most instances if it is a true emergency. But if you are not near death, and just need to see a doctor, then go to a clinic or one of those urgent care or immediate care health clinics. The clinic I went to charged me $44 if I saw the physicians assistant, and $85 if I saw a doctor. Those type places are cheaper and more affordable than going to an emergency room.
7. Going to emergency room for non emergency. You know, while a lot of people do this, I don’t think it is a very good idea. For one thing, it ties up the emergency room staff with petty things. It also costs way more money to go to an emergency room than it does to go to a place like Kanab Clinic or to a place like Concentra in Flagstaff. $85 is nothing compared to having a bill for over $1000.
8. How do I found out about traffic accidents on I-40 east of Amarillo. I wrote a little post about an accident we passed on I-40 on our trip to Arizona this spring, and there have been lots of people looking for info about accidents on I-40 since then. I think I-40 has more accidents than any other road out there, judging by the searches for that term.
9. What do I take for an itchy rash on my face. My rash was diagnosed as Rosacea. My doctor prescribed three things: 1. I take doxycycl (an antibiotic) three times a week by mouth. 2. I use an antibiotic gel, Erythromycin, on my face once a day if there is any rash that erupts. and 3. I use an SPF 50 or higher sunscreen every day on my face. This helps prevent the rash from coming back.
10. What helps an allergic reaction to toilet paper. When I wrote that post, I had NO IDEA how many people would then find my blog because they were dealing with the same, um, itchy places, as I was. So, in order to try to help those people out, I will tell you what has helped me: 1. I started using wipes instead of toilet paper as often as possible. This has really helped a lot in reducing the itchiness that has been going on for me. 2. I also started using a moisturizer THERE once a day. The same one I use on my face. The moisturizer helps a LOT. I can’t say that doing this will help everyone, but if you do suspect that the itch you have is caused by the toilet paper you are using, then stop using it, and see if things improve. What do you have to lose besides an annoying itch?
