You can have "Joy All Year" when you join FallonFun.com!
Dear Family and Friends,
This year has been stuffed to the rafters with all kinds of challenges, good and bad...happy and sad. As you may or may not know, our dear sweet Mom, Delphin Bendickson, went to be with her Heavenly Family on May 6 this year. Part of me really envies her, but I am also thankful that I am still able to be here to share with you the many fond memories that we have had together. That is why I have built FallonFun.com in her honor, because we have loved this community ever since we moved here in 1968. Mom has shopped in many of our community's stores and explored many of the delightful new businesses just starting up. So many of them, she just wanted to spend more time in and see all the cool stuff they had to offer.
I have thought about this and I thought there has got to be a way for little ol' me to do something to help my community, but how do I do that when I am stuck in bed? So I took all of the stuff that I know and built something really cool with the love and guidance of my wonderful loving Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Mom always loved the stories of how Jesus came to earth and taught us how to live better and be happy. Plus, Jesus taught us what we need to know and do in order to return to our Heavenly Father and what is the purpose of our life here on earth. Mom taught us many things and shared her love for her Heavenly Family and how she appreciates all that our Heavenly Father gives us every day. She has shown that love to others in a wide variety of ways and was always a great role model to follow.
By the way, a note about me being stuck in bed: I want you to know that I have a wonderful lady helping me get my health back and she is teaching me all about her various products that have had a huge impact on my life. Her name is Mandie and she has some articles that I would love to share with you. She guest writes these articles under the Username...Health Oils. She has started me on a path of holistic wellness and the importance of having a positive attitude even when you have to endure some rather annoying challenges.
For those of you who don't know what "Holistic Wellness" is...it is defined as: Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person -- body, mind, spirit, and emotions -- in the quest for optimal health and wellness.
She has me eating raw fruits and delicious cooked vegetables, which follows the Word of Wisdom perfectly. I often have my fruit on top of Greek Yogurt. It is an extremely delicious meal all by itself. I am no longer being served any processed foods, canned in lots of salt or fruits with lots of sugary syrup...which has also helped a great deal. Her biggest and most important thing that she has done is helping bring back a positive attitude and helping me get back my smile.
Her service is called Essential Assistance, and I'll tell you what, I am very glad to be getting my life back and feeling better. Her business name is exactly the right name for what my health needed, Essential Assistance. When we first met, I had been battling bronchitis for a long time and it was getting worse. So much so that I couldn't carry on a conversation without coughing my head off. I couldn't even complete a sentence without having a coughing attack. Her various products and knowledge has completely made that awful coughing go away.
The other thing that she has been helping me with is my battle with Lymphedema (which is a blockage of the lymph nodes). My legs have gone down quite a bit in size and with the help of this wonderful diet plus exercising, I am happy to report I have lost a lot of weight. The calf part of my legs used to be so huge that I couldn't go outside if the temperature was above 85 degrees, because I would literally blister my leg. She has been using the "doTERRA Zendocrine", which is a Detoxification Blend and I don't take it internally. What she does is add a few drops to the lotion that I use and then puts that on the calf part of my legs as well as this idiotic very large lump on my left upper leg.

My plan is to be up and walking around by my Mom's next birthday on or before June 12. It is a wonderful feeling to know that I am NOT going to be stuck in this bed for the rest of my life. I can finally start to feel good about finding a wonderful man to go on a date with some day and see all that I have missed over the past 10 years.
I have heard how there are a lot of people out there that deal with depression every day. Well, that is one club that is not much fun to be a member of for so many years. Like Robin Williams, to meet me, you would think I am the happiest person in the world despite my condition, but the truth is...I battle with depression every day. Some days are worse than others. That is another reason why I built FallonFun.com is to help others, because when I help others, it helps me feel better and not think about my own problems. It reminds me that no matter how bad I have it, there are people out there with worse problems than me. So I just put on a happy face, sing a happy song, and get busy on something positive and then I feel better.
I talk with Mandie, too, and that helps. She is a great listener and gives me some good advice. Mandie has a loving husband and a beautiful daughter and when she talks about her husband being her best friend, I smile and think, "Someday, that is what I want to find for myself is a sweet wonderful gentle man with a warm-loving heart." And so that is why one of the services that I offer is called "Find a Friend" , because best friends really do make the best marriages. It is a totally free service and you can choose from a wide variety of things that describe you.
The other thing that I do is talk to the best psychiatrist in the universe. He never charges me a cent and is always available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, plus I can talk with Him wherever I am located. There isn't any problem that I have happening in my life that I can't talk about with this wondrous individual. Our sessions are never timed and I am never cut off in the middle of our conversation. All He asks is that I keep the commandments and follow His Son's example. Who is this psychiatrist, you ask? It is none other than my loving Heavenly Father. At the end of the day, I turn all of my problems over to Him, because He is going to be up all night anyways. Click Here to learn more!
Well, I don't want to make FallonFun.com about serving one purpose. I want to make it about helping everybody in Fallon, Nevada.
Other services that FallonFun.com has to offer are:
Business Directory that you can put a video and/or slide show, along with a Price List of your various products or services. This service, I have made the cost to list your business very affordable. It costs only $10.00 a month or you can save some money by buying the yearly package at $100.00 which will give you two months FREE!
Restaurant Menus for the Restaurant Business Listings, where you can either use our software to make your Restaurant menu or upload your own PDF document to display your menu.
Auctions so that you can sell your stuff, instead of filling up the landfill. Like my Mom always said, "One man's junk is another man's treasure." I know she isn't the original person that said that, but that was one of her favorite sayings. Somewhere along the way, our funny Grandma decided to reword that into, "One man's junk, is now my junk." Well, actually, she always found a lot of great things that weren't junk at all.
Garage/Yard Sales were always a fun time for us. I remember going around town and learning all the new streets built and the great fun of meeting new people in our community. Those were always fun times to look forward to.
Lost & Found Pets is another thing my Mom would be so thrilled about being offered on this website. I can often feel my Mom's presence still with me and the excitement about being able to help pets get back home to their loving families. We always did our best to help find the owners of lost dogs that came wandering down the road to our home and now I can do that for the whole community. I love it and I am sure that Mom loves it too.
Real Estate Listings for everybody who is looking for a place to live or for those that want to sell their home. It also has some great features to help out the Realtors in our community.
Auto Sales is another great feature for anybody that is looking to sell their vehicle or is looking to buy something.
Volunteer Guide is a great way to get involved in doing something good. One of the things that my Mom loves is the compassion that comes with "Service to others brings happiness and satisfaction." I have lots of memories where Mom and I would do something for someone and how wonderful we felt when we committed a senseless act of kindness. Those were fond and treasured memories. I think my favorite was when we made a quilt for a little girl that did not have a homemade quilt and the big smile on her face when she found out that she was finally going to get her very own handmade quilt.
We have many more services that you are bound to enjoy and you can read all about in our "User Guide Helper". My Mom loved all of you and so do I. We would love to have you be part of this website.
