Back in 1982 I was living in Arkansas out in the country. I was building our house on the 20 acres I bought from a friend of my father. I listened to my father and many others during those times. I had friends that did many things. I worked a 40 hour-a-week job for the gov. and I was going to school at the University of Arkansas. During that time I bought many different trucks and worked also selling firewood in my spare time.
We, my wife and two children and I, lived at first in a school bus that I had bought from the Church of Christ. When winter hit and our feet were freezing it seemed to the floor of the bus we decided to move into our house which only had tarps over the two door openings because I hadn't the money to buy the doors as yet.
The snow was on the ground and the first night in our new house we were late getting in because of our jobs (wife and I both worked). It was a little after midnight I think.
I had left our dog and her new pups in the middle of the dirt floor of the house and near the wood stove in the corner we had put our bed next to the north and east walls.
As we arrived home and my wife went to lay the baby (my son) on the bed she felt something sticky on the back of her hand and I had set my daughter down and was fumbling with the coal oil lamp which was our only light. When I had gotten it lit with my cold hands, my wife and I gasped at what we saw!
There in the middle of the warm bed was my dog and a couple of her pups munching on a dead possum she had just killed and there was blood all over the bed. What a first night in our new home~!!
However, it did turn out to be one of the best homes I have ever lived in and gave us a supreme enjoyment that none of us will ever want to forget.
Who tells you what and how to think?/
Free thinking, Hummm, Shall I go this way?
Freedom to think as you like is almost an oxymoron today. We are so often pushed into ways of thinking and on such a subconscious level that we espouse things and opinions that we have never actually given any thought to what-so-ever.
From our schools we are told to have an opinion and even our highest officials-The Supreme Court judges- have opinions that they give out to us from the courts. Our president says what he thinks and fully expects us to believe and follow his leading regardless of where (16 trillion in debt) it goes. Our nightly news has their opinion often based on fraudulent imformation. Then we will see the daily papers opinion page where we are told what the leaders of society ought to be thinking.
When we have the freedom to think for ourselves we first consider what it is to think about. There is an old saying , consider the ant. This is a time consuming thing. Considering one's way as it were is not to be taken lightly. Do we go this way or that way. Rest asuredly that which ever way you choose will indeed have an impact on your life and the lives of your family members and your friends and even those you don't know.
One time in a fit of rage and desperate jealousness I took the rifle from near the door to my house and pointed it at my wife who was driving away in a truck with another man. It could have been a terrible family dissaster but for my considering my son who was watching. I saw him out of the corner of my eye and used that moment to think about the future and I didn't like what I saw. So, I put the gun down and went on about my business. I don't know if my son ever shared this with any one. But honestly we all should consider our actions before undertaking them. This will save us many heart aches and problems.
Look before you leap! This is a very old saying and has a great lesson for people should they listen.
A word spoken can never be taken back. There is-believe it or not- great power in our words. What we speak has a tendancy to come true.
The only freedoms we have are those that we excercise for ourselves. In this over regulated world where your every move or intention is regulated and against the law is terrible. We indeed are prisoners and held captive by a tyranic government that is controlled by only a very few people. These tell the presidents what to say and will kill the presidents for saying anything that is against thier wishes. We are restricted in business and even punished financially daily for acts that 50 years ago were our rights as free citizens of the greatest country on earth.
We individually are not responsible for what is going on now but we as individuals must come to an understanding and begin to consider our future and what we will indeed do with it before like in the movie, Shindler's List, we find ourselves telling some one that it is too late to try to change our immediate trip to the killing block. https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/Leigh.RN
She talks about gun control here. Very intersting how my Sister thinks.
Become a free thinker again. Ask yourself why you believe what you do. What are the facts that are represented in what you think. Dig out the facts that you want to consider before you decide to any action or pass any judgement. Be responsible for what you say and what you do.
Mom used to say believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.
She was correct. We should base our beliefs more on facts than other's opinions.
I know that today it is so serious the deal of who will be president and how will our nation come out of it's dire situation. However my 7th graders have a small skit they have put together that I think will put a smile on your face and if you could see them pull this off it may even make you laugh. I will post the Video after the performance in November.
Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen: Today we will have the first Presidential Debate for the 2012 election year.
President Tina OBUMMER: I am President Tina Obummer and I am 66 years old. When I am reelected I will balance the budget so that all Americans can buy toys and then I will make America into a huge Disney Land.
Ms Mitt Windy: I am Ms. Mitt Windy and I am 66 years old. I want to be your new president. As president I promise to bla, bla , bla bla bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla and I will also pay back to China all the money that President Obummer has borrowed from her these last four years.
Ms Albeer: Reporter number one may we have the first question please?
Reporter number one: My question is for Ms Mitt Windy, Is it true Ms Mitt Windy; if you get elected, that Washington D.C. will stink worse over the next 4 years than during the previous administration? We as a people can barely stand the smell as it is with all the BS that Ms Obummer has caused there.
Ms Mitt Windy answers: I asure you my fellow Americans that I will do my best to clean up the mess there and not let too much bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, wind pass.
Ms Albeer: Ok Reporter number 2 your question for President Obummer.
Ms President Obummer: Please explain how you really expect to appease all of us Americans who are bummed out about your presidency.
President Obummer: As I said before, I will balance the budget so that all of the American people can buy more toys. This will make them all very happy. Then I will turn America into one great Disney world with rides in every city. I will make them free for all the people.
Ms Mitt Windy interjects: Yeah right and you will need to borrow more money from China to do that. Isn’t that true? HUH?
Ms Albeer: I’m sorry Ms Mitt Windy you must wait your turn. IT is not your turn to speak!!
Ms Albeer: So there you have it Ladies and Gentlemen: Now you can make your votes with a clear conscience.
Hope America does finally find a way out of the terrible red hole. I personally would have voted for Ron Paul my self but not for either of these two.
Don't worry Big Bird we the people will support you!
Have a great day!! Laugh and Play!!
Great tasting, healthy for you wine is not difficult to make.. Wine can truly be made easily and it will taste great too!!
What is needed is honey instead of sugar and some bakers yeast is what I used. Then you need the juice of either peaches or apples or grapes or whatever non citrus fruit that is like the ones named above.
I used about 2 kilograms(4 lbs) of grapes for my one bottle of fine wine. I bought old grapes that were not pretty any more and the price had fallen to almost nothing.
I then I put them in a juicer that cuts up the fruit and the books online tell you not to do this as it will make the wine bitter. (*BS*)
My wine was great and better than any one else could imagine when I served it to my guests at a dinner party when it was just about 3 months old. I put in only about a 1/3 cup of raw honey (that has not been heated or pasteurized ).
OOOOPS Wife wants me to go with her to our friends now so I will finish telling you all later tonight! Sorry! Love calls!!
OK!! I am back. It is midnight now and I am going to finish this for you.
Above us there are two bottles of wine that is cooking. The balloons are on there so the gases can escape and the bugs or what ever can't contaminate it. I didn't have an oak barrel. So believe it or not my McGivering did the trick. The Chinese use another type of jug that has a glass lid that fits in a kind of mote on the top of the jug and this will allow the gases to escape and the wine will not come into contact with the air and will be safe. I will pour some water into the mote occasionally so that the air cannot get into the jug.
After the wine has cooked for a period of 2 to 3 weeks you may pour carefully into the bottles that you want to keep it in. You may siphon it in with a small hose or try to pour it. Siphoning is better as you can more easily avoid letting the dregs get into the new bottles and this will make more drinking pleasure.
Here again I did not wash the wine bottles that I put the wine in. I drank the wine in them and then re corked them and the inside of the bottle stayed clean by virtue of the alcohol that was in them before. This time I laid the bottles down instead of standing them up so that the cork stays wet and keeps sealed. Then you may drink any time after about 2 weeks if you like up to years later. Mine had lots of dregs in it but the wine down to the dregs was awesome for flavor and body and potency.
So, I put the wine into the bottle after it had cooked for about 2 to 3 weeks. Then I let the bottle sit in a controlled temperature that didn't get above say 70 degrees F. or so.
Well, it is so late that I am missing my letters and needing to retype tooo often.
Mental health issues are every bit as important to our overall well being as what we eat or the toxins in our environment. Not only are we what we eat but we are what we think as well. When we think badly of ourselves and do this habitually then we risk becoming depressed, suffering from low self esteem, or worse, we can even begin to do things that previously we would never dream of doing. We may binge drink or buy or eat ourselves into terrible consequences.
What you read or hear or see on TV or in your environment daily has a definite effect on you whether you notice it or not. We will emulate our surroundings to a great degree. Most of us pay no attention to these things and are constantly distracted into the very next moment of life’s dramas without understanding anything about how we got there or why. What is worse, because we may not know what to do there we may think we are a failure completely and utterly.
As young boy scouts we were taught many valuable things. One is to be prepared (which was our motto) and through one of the badges I earned, I learned to pay attention to my surroundings. I even began to want to study them as I became older.
I have watched people for more than 20 years now, with the intentions of wanting to know why we all do the things we do. What drives us to do them and what sometimes stops us from achieving successes in our lives.
So, I say again, being mentally healthy is a matter of what you feed your mind. Being alert and stable is a simple matter of finding out ‘WHO’ you are and then enjoying knowing your self. If you are aware of your surroundings and aware of what you; like and don’t like; want and don’t want; need and don’t need; then you can make much better choices that will give you a much better future.
I can’t tell you how many students I have interviewed that haven’t a clue as to what they want or don’t want; or are good at or not good at doing. They have been either busy studying what some one told them to learn or playing and goofing off. NONE usually ever take the time to sit down and examine any thing about them selves.
I told a student one time that if he kept a journal that he would learn about himself. I told another to simply make a list of likes and don’t like and don’t know. Because people are young often they haven’t ever asked them selves questions about who they are or even what they actually think about any particular subject in relation to them selves.
When I was young, an older man in the military asked me one time; if the leader told me to jump off a cliff to complete my mission would I do it? Most young men never question authorities much. They are conditioned to just “Do It”. We need to become a little more conscientious about what is actually taking place in the immediate environment in which we live.
I have written this and I believe it. There is no right or wrong. There are only the consequences of our daily decisions. Whether we admit it or not, we impact lives around us daily. We also make so very many decisions daily, as well and those not only impact others but can radically decide our own futures.
There is an old saying “be still and know”. ( I am only quoting a portion of it.) Another person told me once, that what he liked to do, is to go to some remote place and find himself there. The Natives of Australia do a ‘walk about’, they call it. They are to become some one before they return to their families. Many Native Americans have a special place where they go for solitude. In our fast paced life today we almost never find ourselves because we don’t go looking.
Time is one of our most valued commodities but we sadly misuse it often giving it to our employers for far less than it is worth.
Take some time and give it to yourself and get to know who you really are. You might find your mental health is making your body well also. You might even find out that you like yourself enough to change the things that you need to change to make your future a better one for you.
Let’s explore ways to make healthy baby foods for your young children.
As always seek out the advice of a professional before radically changing diets especially for very young babies.
I am not a big proponent of any powder formula milk foods for my children. When mine were young my wife breast fed them and they were extremely healthy. The only problem my daughter had was constipation at times. In those days I was quite naive and didn’t know many of the things that I know now. I also was very independent and didn’t go and ask many people either.
Today I would advise that parents not use these powdered milks and try to find a wet goat if possible or just some grass fed cows milk if any of the farmers will sell you any. Don’t cook the milk either. You may warm it on the stove but never use a microwave as it will harm the foods that are heated in it. Barring the availability of the fresh milks, here is my humble suggestion.
I know that this will not be easy for some people as time is a hugely costly commodity.
You may cook some various kinds of rice or other grains and use a lot more water than normal to do so. After doing so and the waters have turned to a soup [you may even add other things such as potatoes or vegetables as well] then you simply pour this water off and feed it to the baby. To further enrich this water you may take bananas and mash them in the water to make it a little thicker but still drinkable. Or you may juice some fruits that you have and the riper the better. These in my opinion are very healthy and tasty and good for your children. I tried to feed my children as soon as I could from the table. They did quite nicely.
The left over grains or soups you may serve the rest of the family and add spices to their liking after you have poured off the babies food.
I also lived in the woods in Arkansas when they were born and very young and their sometimes baby sitters were our two big dogs.
In those days, many of my family didn’t care for the way I did. We lived without running water and any TV or electricity. There was no telephone either.
These actually were some of the happiest days of our lives and we all remember these days with joy. I believe that had we stayed there all of us would have been much happier than we were after having moved away.
Mashing up cooked vegetables was what my mother and grandmother used to use to feed us when we were young as the bottled baby foods were just too expensive in the day. Now I believe that the foods we were fed were also much healthier than the bottled or canned foods.
I seldom ever bought cokes or sugar in these days either. When my children were very young I did sweeten things with fruits and when they got a little older we started them on honey.
Some families actually feed their children sugar water. I do not think that white sugar is good for you nor your children.
My father in those days always had a large garden and we would help others harvest their patches of strawberries or apples or what have you and make arrangements to keep some for ourselves.
This kind of country life style is near forgotten for most people today as all over the world people are going to the cities in droves and most are literally starving to death as they become unhealthy and succumb to the doctors’ evil medicines.
Here in China today I see people all over farming any small piece of ground they can. Many living in the same area will farm alongside of others and each family will have their own small piece of growing area and supplement their diets in this rich fashion.
In some parts of America there are actual salt stones that the animals of the woods will lick on. These stones may also supplement your diet as well. When the worst of the depression was going on many of the poorest of the Oklahomans would eat certain clays as these are rich in many minerals necessary for life.
I hope that this will give you some insights into how life can be much different given you are willing to make different choices than some would have you make.
Heres to your increased happiness and health!!
During the prohibition days there were many who broke the law. The ones that made the most money at it were the Kennedy's it seems. With their powerful political ties and clout they were able to prosper when others were being chased through the hills and shot at by revenuers(tax collectors). You see the whole situation was a huge fiasco for the people and a huge success for the controlling corporate gov., who leveraged themselves and began to tax an industry firstly by making it illegal and then by legislating it back into a law abiding albeit taxed status. So now in America you must have a license to sell liqueur or beer of any kind and you must pay a huge tax on it when you buy it. The problem with history often is that people only read about it and seldom live through it but once. If people had lived through those times only recently then the situation today with the banksters would surely bring us to armed uprising like never before.
When you go to the bank today in America you can expect to be screwed royally(the Queen of England is still in power over the Americas by virtue of ownership in the banking systems of the world.) and I mean that quite literally. Now while it is true that this all that I am writing is considered only my opinion, I beg of you to prove me wrong.
So, of recent, I am told that in Louisiana if you want to run a garage sale more often than once a month you must not take cash. You are only allowed to take credit cards or money orders or checks so that you may be taxed. I don't agree with being taxed on every damn thing we do. I used to buy old cars and fix them and resell them and did quite well. Then they passed new laws that said I needed a license and they only issue so many licenses per capita. So, like the liqueur license you must buy one that was already issued. NO NEW COMPETITION~@! This is directly related to the Rockefellers and the way they control their monopoly on oil. So now if you want to do any business in America it is difficult to do because they require a license or some kind of government control (FDA or even the FBI may not like what you do) or you are considered illegally operating and they will hunt you down like they did the shiners and how can you raise a family like that?
Now the medical monopoly says you cannot treat your own body with herbs and foods, rather you must go to their doctors and submit to their evil medicines (chemo and vaccines) that kill you and do not heal.
How can we take back our freedoms of choice that were stolen from us in 1865 with the end of the Civil war and the beginning of national slavery?
You won't do it by obeying their unlawful and unhealthy laws. Come on, Do you really believe that fresh raw milk from a grass fed cow is unhealthy and should be illegal?
When are we going to come to our senses and stand up to them and say enough is enough! Leave me the hell alone to do as I please with my life. I have the right to pursue my own happiness and as long as I don't harm any one in the process then you have no right to say I am breaking any laws and further more I resent your taxation of my livelihoods to the point that I am forced to buy where you tell me and not where I want to buy and with what currency I want to use. I don't want to work where you tell me either. I want to work where I want with who I want and how I want. If I want to buy and sell then I will and you won't tell if I can or not.
If you think I am wrong then please let me know in the comments below.
If you agree with me, then also let me know.
Maybe I don't see the truth well. Let's get together on some of this and check it out!!
This is so very terrible that most Americans and many of the people of the world do not know that they have been targetted for slaughter at the hands of the food companies. What gaul these bxstxrds have to do something like this which is so mean spirited.
I don't really know how to talk about it and them. I just know that I want justice and I almost want revenge along with it. I am that insenced at what they have done to all of us all over the world. What is more the ones who for nothing more than money and laziness have also sided with them in thier crimes. Man~~~
Any way, I am happy to be living at the moment where people are a little more knowledgeable and the foods are indeed safer.
Many times there have been real cancer cures for many people. The problem is people are so easily conned into believing that the medical system (especially in the us of America ) is and does and will tell the truth about illness and disease. The truth is they do not. The Western medicine and even some eastern medicine institutions are only interested in making money and not in the health of their constituents.
This my friends is the reality of our world. We, however do have choices and the first is to which voices we believe? Do you believe the drug companies who have been recently found guilty of paying doctors to subscribe dangerous drugs to people who don't need them? Do you believe the doctors who take the bribes? Do you believe the journals who will not print the truths about natural remedies and documented university studies that prove natural remedies all over the world? Do you even know when your body is telling you something? Your body is who you should listen to. This is called biofeedback. Remember the old saying be still, so as to hear your inner voice? Or another, be still and know that I am God. You are such a wonderful creation and you deserve to live free of illness and uneasiness and disease. Be ware of vaccines and medicines. They are mostly if not all poisons and are indeed killing you ever so slowly. The biggest problem with them is that they rob you of your quality of life in your body. They also rob you of your money because they tell you one thing but in reality you succumb to another.
Max Gerson was a very important person and the us of America government almost passed laws in the 1930's to support him and his discovery of a dietary cancer cure. But big business in America lobbied against him and then sent an assassin twice to kill him. This is what we people are truly up against in the world. There are those who don't want us to live and prosper and will do every thing in their power to rob us and kill us and destroy us if they can and the world we live in too. For instance the bp (British Petroleum) oil spill cover up. You name it. These big institutions and companies are in near total power to day. They will lie to you and cheat you and kill you eventually if you don't wake up and take irresponsibility for your own body and health and security.
We need to study and show ourselves a people that will make quality decisions and not follow the media and the gov. and the voices that rob us of our autonomy and privacy and health.
If you understand what I am saying and agree with me, please tell others and seek a higher quality of life for all of us. Resist evil!!http://gerson.org/gerpress/dr-max-gerson/ http://cancerdefeated.com/31-dayV2/index.php?EXITPOP=Y&SC=CNN31D120812

Butternut squash soup is one of the easiest and healthiest, not to mention best tasting dishes you can make. Find a butternut squash and cut it and then simply put it in the pot. We use a clay pot because of the added health and taste benifits. Then add water and boil till the squash is soft and serve. Eat as it cools. It is naturally sweet and needs no salt nor any other flavoring. Simple and delicious naturally. Provides a great many vitamins and minerals especially if you also eat the seeds too. Try it, you'll see. It is also reported to be great for the digestive tract and eyes.http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/butternut-squash.html
