Need a Fix?


Some honey blends may contain spores that, while harmless to healthy adults and older children, could prove fatal to infants!

Honey is an old folk remedy for upset tummies and dyspepsia; modern scientific studies back this up. Honey has been shown to stop the growth of H.pylori...the bacterium implicated in stomach ulcers!
Here's a few things you can do with it:

Insomnia- A glass of warm milk and tablespoon of honey.
Pack a wound with it...kills staph! Promotes healing, reduces swelling and helps prevent scaring!
Treat a burn with it by running it under cold water then applying a thin film of honey and applying a light gauze dressing over it. Works on sunburn as well!
Honey calms the itch of Chicken Pox...
Apply to Acne...kills the infection of those pesky staph germs.
Use as a facial moisturizer...
Lip gloss! Equal parts honey and petroleum jelly.
Eczema, ringworm, psoriasis and even hair loss...
Asthma...1teaspoon honey mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon at bedtime. Scientific research proves that honey is an effective treatment for upper respiratory infections. One study found that a Single bedtime dose of buckwheat honey effectively treated sleep problems and nighttime coughing...Given FDA warnings about commercial medications...honey is a safe and effective solution...BUT NEVER UNDER AGE 2!!!
Sore throat remedy...Boil a lemon for 3 minutes, then squeeze the juice into an equal part of honey and drink.
Seasonal Allergies...Start early in the season by chewing honeycomb! Helps get rid of stuffiness and headache.
Hangovers....HAhaaa...True! The high fructose content helps the liver oxidize alcohol and the honey won't irritate your stomach!
Use in the shower or bath! Rub it on as you would kills germs on the skin!
Honey never spoils! It Can loose some of its healing power if mistreated though...Keep honey in a cool dark place!
Raw is BEST! as are the darker buckwheat, tupelo or sage. Can't find those? Just make sure it's dark and raw!
Well I hope this has been helpful...I already use it for some of these things but I'll also be trying it on the rest of them...All Except Hangover...Don't get many of those these days!!HAhaaa...
Happy Sunday to you!!

It's Friday!

One day, long, long ago, there lived a woman who did not whine, nag, or bitch.

But, it was a long time ago, & it was just that one day.
The End

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

What a Lazy Weekend!

Crystal and Sami on Memorial Day.

We have done Nothing this weekend!! Well, we did check out the new Collin Street Bakery, on Saturday, that just opened up here last week...Not as good as the original one in Corsicana least not yet. The one in Corsicana has COOKIES everywhere!! PIE and CAKE and FRUITCAKE. The old building is literally stuffed with goodies. And COFFEE...Hahaa....The new one here in Waco has a sandwich bar...good grief. Not many people inside. Oh well. Maybe they just need to be in business a bit longer. We'll see.
The kiddos came for burgers Sunday. We all had a great little visit. Hope you all had a Wonderful day! We go back to work tomorrow though...Oh well. Have a great week guys! Just think, four more days till the weekend again!!Hahaa....

Just IN!!! 2nd, Thursday Post

From Clayton Morris
Fox News reporter
2:40pm Today

Real UFOs, the blog whose title says it all, has uncovered a treasure trove of videos from NASA which include UFOs. You can see one right here, and there are at least a dozen more on Martyn Stubbs' YouTube channel.While you ponder that, just remember that the UFO lobby working in Washington thinks that the Obama Administration is the most likely to admit to the alien cover-up. The New York Times recently profiled a DC lobbyist whose entire job is trying to get government officials to admit alien technologies exist that could rescue the environment.

You Need Some of This!

Melt in your Mouth Whole Wheat pancakes!!!
From IHOP!!
Brought to you by a Smiling Face!!!HAhaa....These were Wonderful! Hot and dripping in butter and syrup...GEEZ! BUT!! We DID NOT order the coffee...$2.00 each...oh yes she leaves the caraffe on the table but $4.00??? No thanks. I can buy a pound of coffee for that...Not Good coffee probably but coffee nonetheless...
Can you tell I've not been doing much??LOL...Nope, Nothing! Hubby and I are going to the annual Apprentice (plumber) banquet tonight...but other than that...nuttin'! BUT! Tomorrow's Friday and we're also off Monday for Memorial day so another nice rest is in order!

Went By In A Blur!

Geez! This weekend went by in a Blur!! What did I DO?Hahaa...Isn't it awful when you can't seem to grab the peaceful moments of time? I Know I had some...Hubby went out of town to spend some quality time with his buddy in San Antonio. That left Corky (pooch) and I to hang out together. I cooked...did some reading (James Van Praag's new book, Unfinished Business), cleaned out the refrigerator and listened to the rain...Saturday and Sunday! I suppose I could have gone to see the new Star Trek movie but I really don't like to go alone...the kids were all busy with their own lives (HOW UNFAIR!!Hahaaa...). Oh well, I just patted the dog and kept on reading. UnFinished Business is great! If you get a chance, pick up a copy.
Well, guess I'll get back to work...and wonder if there's a way to make time slow down. Happy Monday everyone!

Rain, Roast and Earthquakes?

Flowers are wet and drippy this morning from all the rain we've gotten over the weekend.
So it's time to make some good old roast, rice and gravy!
Flour both sides of your roast and then sear to a crispy brown...Add water or beef stock to cover...chop up some onion and bell pepper and let it cook on a low, low heat for about 3 hours. Put your rice in a bowl and pour the hot roast and gravy over it...lordy...Nice!
Heard on the radio this morning that in Euless, Texas, we had an earthquake!! 3.8!! That's about 150miles north from us so I never felt a thing! What Next?!! Oh...Obama's speaking at Notre Dame today...Hahaaa.....Happy day Everyone!!

Happy Friday!

Finally! Hopefully it'll be a peaceful weekend. We've got a few things to do around the house but beyond That, Nothing! Like a few other blogger buds, haven't been sleeping to well lately...but my main problem is Corky wandering around in the middle of the night waking me up. You have to get up, grab his blankie and lay him down in his bed again...oh well, such is life.
Hope you all have a quiet and peaceful weekend!
Don't forget The Brenda Photo Challenge for Saturday!! Go sign up! Have a great Friday!
