Morning all, been to town, was a lovely but cool start to the day, after days of 80s yesterday we were only at 60. Felt good, cat got under the blanket and slept so she felt the change too. I came home and read my bible verses, one I really like today, from Revelations 21, "He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be my son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters and all liars shall have their part in t he lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
Got wrapped up in Dr. Oz show again this week, he had a man they call The Health Ranger, who tests for levels of unacceptable stuff in what we eat. He has been testing for heavy metals, and poison in things, stuff like arsenic, aluminum and bug killers. Even certified organic foods are not tested for metals, sad. FDA does not care what we eat, I think there is a plot afoot to weed us out by what we eat, and lessen the population for some reason, maybe so more illegals can be here in the USA. Do you remember when the immigrants left their oppressed countries and came her because they wanted OUR way of life? They learned English and took on our customs. Now folk want to set up their countries here and run us out. Something wrong with that. Anyway, back to these metals. They affect your skin and hair and body. They go to your liver , and seep into all your cells. They cause DNA changes, cancer, heart attacks and many other problems. Protein powders which many rely on are really bad for these metals. Seems a lot of the products are imported from Asia proteins which are very high in heavy metals. The US produced ones are not, but its not required that the label states where ingredients come from so you don't have a way of knowing. There is a bill in CA called Prop 65 which limits metal content in food. For more info and safe brands, check out Dr. Oz's website. Hemp protein is clean, so is whey. Ginkgo from the US is clean, but not imported, There are no restrictions on imported herbs and other products, so look for made in the US as much as possible. If you are unsure, get in touch with manufacturers and ask about their products , procedures and metal levels. Imported cocoa is also high in metal, so get good old US chocolates. If you are looking to detox your body, eat ( organic) strawberries, almonds, spinach, broccoli, they all do you a world of good.
Got some wrinkles going on you would like to loose? Boil 1/2 cup of water, put 25 fresh basil leaves in and steep til a bit cool, then run through food processor. At bedtime use a cotton ball and apply to wrinkles, leave on over night, guess you will smell like spaghetti or some such. But worth a shot.
Most of the garden is up and doing well, the heavy rain killed out my tomato and pepper plants so need to start some more of those.
My darling little grand daughters will be here in just over a week, can hardly wait to see them, and of course their mom and dad! We always have a great time visiting. And it always goes much too fast. What ever happened to the transporter idea? It would be great to get into a tube, push a button and be someplace else in just a matter of seconds. Of course, I am told you might not get back together quite right, mmm, maybe not such a good idea.
Have a great week, enjoy the warmer weather, winter may finally be behind us. Til next time, live healthy.
