Dogs, clementines, tangerines, mandarins and naval oranges


I can see the look on your face. What does all this citrus fruit have to do with a dog. The love of sweetness and great taste.

No joke, my dogs love mandarin oranges

I can be in the kitchen with the door shut and as soon as they get a whiff of that sweet sunshine they are at that door whining for the orange.

Yes your dogs can eat tangerines, clementines, mandarin’s and naval oranges in small amounts.

Great source of vitamin C, potassium and fiber.

There is a large amount of natural sugar so dogs who are diabetic should not be fed any of these fruits.

Marijuana, CBD and Your Health


DANGER CBD or THC… Toxins In All

What to do when your medicine is in the form of CBD or THC?

Testing your medicine after you receive it from the despesary is going backwards to my train of thought. I’m not sure about you, but I think it should be pure of any toxins when you buy the product.

Where is the tax money from this product going? I think some of it should be going into a Federally Regulated and backed by Uncle Sam. They have legalized it now maintain the quality that is promised.

Today about 1/3 of our population today medicates in some way with CBD or THC. Whether it be smoking, edibles, creams or tonics, we need to be cautious.

As we have seen in the past few weeks that these product are Un-Regulated and have not been federally or even regulated testing for purity from harmful pesticides, heavy metals and other known toxins.

When so many are using these products today. Whether it be for medical use or recreational use, it needs to be regulated so the consumer is protected.
I am guessing that most of these cases will be blamed on “Home Made” recipes bought on the street. But that won’t be the case. As several have already been traced back to some of the dispensaries.

It’s hard to know what’s in that little green bottle or gummy bear…

Researchers have warned that Synthetic Cannabinoids are likly to be the cause to many poisnionings and deaths.

A recent study found a dangerous synthetic, as well as a cough suppressant dextromethorphan, in one manufactures CBD vaping products.

In a recent study on different products from several different manufactures shows that the potency was barely 1/4 percent of the CBD specified percentage stated on the label.

So moral to this story is buyer beware… Ask you government officials for stronger regulations and federally backed testing for potency and purity.

Tuna Review: How’s Your Tuna?


Tuna Review: Target Market Pantry Solid White Albacore in Water

12 ounce can of Dolphin Safe
$2.79 on SALE $1.99 (Hawaii)
This is a good deal for the price. Most of the 12 ounce cans of tuna from the “Big” markets are of lesser quality compared to your name brands. So far this is one is good quality. Name brands prices run any where from $5.99 to $14.99 for a 12 ounce can. I am sure it is cheaper for other states.

“Hey my tuna tastes like Vegetables”…Just kidding..

Not sure why the ingredients include vegetable brooth when it says in water? I thought we wanted it to taste like tuna?

Ingredients vary from manufacture. This can contains: Albacore Tuna, Water, Vegetable Broth, Salt, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate. May also contain Bones.

It does not say what country it was processed or caught in. Mystery fish are becoming more prevalent in our society. Not all Tuna is alike… It does say it CONTAINS TUNA… Hahahahaha. Actually I thought it was a very good tuna for the price.

CONTAINS TUNA … Seriously it’s a can of TUNA

Nutrition Facts:

There are 3 servings per can. I add pickles and Mayo so I get more like 5 servings… I love sweet gherkin pickles. OOohhhh So Yummy!! Ok back to the facts.

90 Calories per serving when drained. A Healthy 1/3 cup of Tuna per serving.

Wow I did not realize tuna had Cholesterol. Each serving of this Tuna has 30 mg. I thought we ate tuna to lower our Cholesterial? Now I am confused.

It says it only has 1 Gram of Fat. Which fat? It does not say. But you do get a touch of Potassium 200mg, Vitamin D 1.1 mcg and Iron 0.4mg.

Sodium is at 280mg. No Carbs, No Fiber, No sugars and No Added Sugars.

Great News 19 grams of Protein and 220 mg per serving of DHA & EPA OMEGA-3 are present.

The good thing with Target’s Brand, Market Pantry Solid White Albacore Tuna is that there is no Soy added. Bumble Bee Tuna adds Soy and is about $4 more a can here.

If you are adding Mayo and Or Pickles get the nutritional information from the labels on the containers and watch those calories bump up. Don’t forget the bread, crackers or what ever vessel your delivery will be to your mouth has to be counted. Slimmest delivery system is a spoon… Zero calories.

JANE THE VIRGIN: OMG One Of The Best Comedy’s To Come Our Way In A Long Time


Jane the Virgin

I have not laughed like this in so long. Great writing portrays a “Pregnant Virgin”. The turmoils and tribulations she must go through is hilarious episode after episode. The narration at the beginning of every episode is just as funny.. It sets the stage for comedy.

So glad I choose to watch this even if the reviews say prefect for teenagers. I am 58 years old and I say anyone who needs a laugh and a little uplifting to watch. This is just wonderfully written with the chemistry between the actors illuminates every characters hilarious story even further.

I watched all 81 episodes and was left wanting more.

CBD TREATMENTS: Are we on the right track?


CBD = Healing / Pain Relief NO HIGH

TCH = Gets you High. Euphoric Type

So much to be discovered in the world of CBD treatments. As soon as we all get away from the stigma that has been placed on a wonderful plant that can help with so many illnesses in so many ways.

Other countries have been testing and experimenting with their patients and CBD for many years, since the early 1920’s. Some say the Egyptians treated illnesses with CBD Hemp Marijuana dates back 3000 years. During the early years of this planet they used herbs and plants native to their areas to use as medicine. This plant was placed on this earth for a reason. Every plant on this earth has a medicinal use of some sort. Some we can even use as poison to kill off bad cells in our bodies. Natural medicine is the answer for so many medical uses .

It was prohibition that caused the medical society to put CBD Hemp Tinctures on the back burner and call it “A MONSTER” that created people to act crazy. We all know that was Alcohol and is to this day and not CBD , Marijuana, Hemp, Grass, Pot and Etc nicknames.

Actually all products and Bi-Products of THC does not make the people go all crazy. Actually opposite of that. They are very mellow and avoid any type of aggressive behavior unlike what we see with alcohol.

Non-Psychoactive

CBD is non-psychoactive because it does not act on the same pathways as the Psychoactive counterparts. These pathways in the brain, called CB1 receptors, are responsible for the psychoactive effects. The .3% or less standard has been established by the FDA as a trace amount with no psychoactive impacts on the human brain.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid constituent of cannabis. It was discovered in 1940 and initially thought not to be pharmaceutically active. It is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in hemp plants, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. As of 2018 in the United States, Food and Drug Administration approval of cannabidiol as a prescription drug called Epidiolex for medical uses has been limited to two rare forms of childhood epilepsy.

Cannabidiol can be taken into the body in multiple different ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as an oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (no added THC or terpenes), a full-plant CBD-dominant hemp extract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or as a prescription liquid solution.

CBD’s Crystal Isolates is a high-end vapor liquid and oral drops infused with premium CBD rich hemp oil.

CBD is a natural constituent of CBD oil. Every supplement produces is 100% natural, containing all organic natural flavoring, and is safe for topical use.

Side effects of CBD include sleepiness, decreased appetite, diarrhea, fatigue, malaise, weakness, sleeping problems, and others. It does not have intoxicating effects like those caused by THC, and may have an opposing effect on disordered thinking and anxiety produced by THC. CBD has been found to interact with a variety of different biological targets, including cannabinoid receptors and other neurotransmitter receptors. The mechanism of action of CBD in terms of its psychoactive and therapeutic effects is not fully clear.

Are you in need of some sleep? THC is a wonderful way to get your medicine dispensed so you can get a good nights rest.

Dremel Saw-Max Review: Cutting Old Kitchen Floor Tile


We had to fix a little BOOBOO I created. I was going to rip up the kitchen tile, but now have decided to wait until next summer.

I decided to cut the tile down another 1/4 inch from where it was originally for the cabinet bases to fit properly without an issue. I can always put a wider baseboard along the bottom of cabinets until next summer.

I set my blade depth so I only cut the tile.

I used water. The little bottle I snipped a little more from the tip and wet down the tile.Kept the bottle to the rear of the saw and squirt the blade from behind it.

It helped a little but not much since the exhaust comes out of the side actually.

 

 

I am very impressed with what ease I had cutting the tile today. The Dremel “Saw Max” cut right through the tile. No vibration or jerking. Cut straight and true to the line.

You might want to use the vacuum hose connector to collect the dust. That was my only issue was dust and that was limited.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now I can take out the remaining tile without chipping into it and breaking it.

 

 

 

 

 

This is my 3rd application using the Dremel “Saw Max” and I Love It. Great tool, all in one little mighty saw Dremel “Saw Max”.

One For The “DO NOT DO THIS” FILE: What ever you do do not use the SAW MAX for drywall INSIDE the house.

That was my first experience with my “saw Max”. My regular dremel broke in the middle of the project. I ended up with the “Saw Max” and blowing drywall dust all over every thing in my house. Better to use the regular Dremel with a drywall bit for drywall applications..

WARNING: DO NOT LET THEM GET WET!!!!


WARNING: LIGHT UP SHOES FOR KIDS, DO NOT LET THEM GET WET!!!!

WOW amazing that we actually have to worry about battery acid burning our child’s feet. Your child’s shoes going up in flames in the middle of the night.

The reports of injury and mishaps are creating a health issue for the child and a night mare for the parents.

You would never think that something like this would be even be possible, or that it would burn down your house.

A young girls light Up Shoes went up in flames and burnt down the house. The family dog woke them up and everyone got out safe.

One young Boy was lucky and has only suffered 2nd degree chemical burns from his sketcher light up shoes. Apparently when they get wet the batteries release a chemical causing children’s feet to burn

Another boys shoes burned the family cars back seat out. Thank God the child was not wearing them at the time. His mother says with him being so young could he actually tell her something was wrong or even worse that he may not be able to take them off by himself.

Payless and Sketchers voluntarily took the shoe off the shelves. But beware they are being resold through used outlet stores or on Ebay.

 

Find Out What’s inside the light up shoe (LED) that makes them so dangerous. Here’s what’s inside the shoes…

Google can’t spy on you!!

MAKING SURE YOUR GAS MASK PROPERLY FITS…


Nothing has really changed since 1960  as far as the fitting instructions go.

The mask is almost the same. Maybe a few changes to the type of rubber or silicone used in the mask. Just remember make sure your mask fits the purpose it is intended for.

 

So this is the one I have in my survival kit. Its simple and the filters keep most gases from entering.

Important additional information about respirator selection

Personal Protection and Sanitation Recommendations

This section presents a summary of recommended practices for each substance.  These recommendations supplement general work practices (e.g., no eating, drinking, or smoking where chemicals are used) and should be followed if additional controls are needed after using all feasible process, equipment, and task controls.  Each category is described as follows:

SKIN: Recommends the need for personal protective clothing.
EYES: Recommends the need for eye protection.
WASH SKIN: Recommends when workers should wash the spilled chemical from the body in addition to normal washing (e.g., before eating).
REMOVE: Advises workers when to remove clothing that has accidentally become wet or significantly contaminated.
CHANGE: Recommends whether the routine changing of clothing is needed.
PROVIDE: Recommends the need for eyewash fountains and/or quick drench facilities.

First Aid

This entry lists emergency procedures for eye and skin contact, inhalation, and ingestion of the toxic substance.

Respirator Selection Recommendations

This section provides a condensed table of allowable respirators to be used for those substances for which IDLH values have been determined, or for which NIOSH has previously provided respirator recommendations (e.g., in criteria documents or Current Intelligence Bulletins) for certain chemicals.  There are, however, 186 chemicals listed in the Pocket Guide for which IDLH values have yet to be determined.  Since the IDLH value is a critical component for completing the NIOSH Respirator Selection Logic for a given chemical, the Pocket Guide does not provide respiratory recommendations for those 186 chemicals without IDLH values.  As new or revised IDLH values are developed for those and other chemicals, NIOSH will provide appropriate respirator recommendations.   [Appendix F contains an explanation of the “Effective” IDLHs used for four chloronaphthalene compounds.]

In 1995, NIOSH developed a new set of regulations in 42 CFR 84 (also referred to as “Part 84”) for testing and certifying non-powered, air-purifying, particulate-filter respirators. The new Part 84 respirators have passed a more demanding certification test than the old respirators (e.g., dust; dust and mist; dust, mist, and fume; spray paint; pesticide) certified under 30 CFR 11 (also referred to as “Part 11”).  Recommendations for non-powered, air-purifying particulate respirators have been updated from previous editions of the Pocket Guide to incorporate Part 84 respirators; Part 11 terminology has been removed.  For more information concerning the selection of N-, R-, or P-series (Part 84) particulate respirators click here.

In January 1998, OSHA revised its respiratory protection standard (29 CFR 1910.134). Among the provisions in the revised standard is the requirement for an end-of-service-life indicator (ESLI) or a change schedule when air-purifying respirators with chemical cartridges or canisters are used for protection against gases and vapors [29 CFR 1910.134(d)(3)(iii)]. requirement.)    In the Pocket Guide, air-purifying respirators (without ESLIs) for protection against gases and vapors are recommended only for chemicals with adequate warning properties, but now these respirators may be selected regardless of the warning properties.  Respirator recommendations in the Pocket Guide have not been revised in this edition to reflect the OSHA requirements for ESLIs or change schedules.

Appendix A lists the NIOSH carcinogen policy. Respirator recommendations for carcinogens in the Pocket Guide have not been revised to reflect this policy; these recommendations will be revised in future editions.

The first line in the entry indicates whether the “NIOSH” or the “OSHA” exposure limit is used on which to base the respirator recommendations.  The more protective limit between the NIOSH REL or the OSHA PEL is always used. “NIOSH/OSHA” indicates that the limits are equivalent.

Each subsequent line lists a maximum use concentration (MUC) followed by the classes of respirators, with their Assigned Protection Factors (APFs), that are acceptable for use up to the MUC.  Individual respirator classes are separated by diagonal lines (/).  More protective respirators may be worn.  “Emergency or planned entry into unknown concentrations or entry into IDLH conditions” is followed by the classes of respirators acceptable for these conditions.  “Escape” indicates that the respirators are to be used only for escape purposes.  For each MUC or condition, this entry lists only those respirators with the required APF and other use restrictions based on the NIOSH Respirator Selection Logic.

In certain cases, the recommended respirators are annotated with the following symbols as additional information:

* Substance reported to cause eye irritation or damage; may require eye protection
£ Substance causes eye irritation or damage; eye protection needed
¿ Only nonoxidizable sorbents allowed (not charcoal)
End of service life indicator (ESLI) required

All respirators selected must be approved by NIOSH under the provisions of 42 CFR 84. The current listing of NIOSH/MSHA certified respirators can be found in the NIOSH Certified Equipment List .

A complete respiratory protection program must be implemented and must fulfill all requirements of 29 CFR 1910.134. respiratory protection program must include a written standard operating procedure covering regular training, fit-testing, fit-checking, periodic environmental monitoring, maintenance, medical monitoring, inspection, cleaning, storage and periodic program evaluation.  Selection of a specific respirator within a given class of recommended respirators depends on the particular situation; this choice should be made only by a knowledgeable person.  REMEMBER: Air-purifying respirators will not protect users against oxygen-deficient atmospheres, and they are not to be used in IDLH conditions.  The only respirators recommended for firefighting are self-contained breathing apparatuses that have full facepieces and are operated in a pressure-demand or other positive-pressure mode.  Additional information on the selection and use of respirators can be found in the NIOSH Respirator Selection Logic (DHHS [NIOSH] Publication No. 2005-100) and the NIOSH Guide to Industrial Respiratory Protection (DHHS [NIOSH] Publication No. 87-116).

Exposure Route, Symptoms, Target Organs

Exposure Route

This section lists the toxicologically important routes of entry for each substance and whether contact with the skin or eyes is potentially hazardous.

Symptoms

This entry lists the potential symptoms of exposure and whether NIOSH considers the substance a potential occupational carcinogen.

Target Organs

This entry lists the organs that are affected by exposure to each substance.  For carcinogens, the type(s) of cancer are listed in brackets.  Information in this section reflects human data unless otherwise noted.

Selection of N-, R-, or P- Series Particulate Respirators

  1. The selection of N-, R-, and P-series filters depends on the presence of oil particles as follows:
  • If no oil particles are present in the work environment, use a filter of any series (i.e., N-, R-, or P-series).
  • If oil particles (e.g., lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine) are present, use an R- or P-series filter.  Note: N-series filters cannot be used if oil particles are present.
  • If oil particles are present and the filter is to be used for more than one work shift, use only a P-series filter.

Note: To help you remember the filter series, use the following guide:

N for Not resistant to oil,

R for Resistant to oil,

P for oil Proof.

  1. Selection of filter efficiency (i.e., 95%, 99%, or 99.97%) depends on how much filter leakage can be accepted.  Higher filter efficiency means lower filter leakage.

3.The choice of facepiece depends on the level of protection needed – that is, the assigned protection factor (APF) needed.

 

 

Working in this Acid, Volcanic, Gassy Rain.. Keaau, Hawaii


WOW.. Where is the GAS MASK ???

Most stores in Pahoa, Hawaii have sold out of protection masks.

You really need to keep a gas mask on hand if you are going to live on a volcano or even near one. It was terrible working in the Vog and rain. But when you have work that needs to get done. You do it. Trimming for hurricane season. We are ready for what ever comes this way.

 

 

 

 

Yes, no blue skies… Sad only grey 😦

 

So this is the one I have in my survival kit. Its simple and the filters keep most gases from entering.

Hawaii, Big Island … Acid rain appeared today… Time to “FILTER YOUR WATER”


Acid rain appeared today. I am north / West of The Flow.

By: Chad Rhodes 05/10/2018

We all knew the Kilauea Eruption on May 3, 2018 was going to upset the water table. We just didn’t know how long it would take before the toxins were carried into our water catchments. I can say it took 7 days to reach the east edge of Keaau, Hawaii.

I noticed this morning when I washed my hands. After the water had ran for a little and cleared last nights water from the lines.. I noticed the difference. Oh my, for a moment I had forgot and I just thought the soap was not coming off.

I have also loaded up the small bottle of Regular Heinez Apple Cider Vinegar for the shower to rinse over my body after showering. It releases the acid rain soapy feeling and leaves your skin soft and hydrated.

 

I ordered my counter top water filtration system and I Love It.

I purchased a good quality one. I opted for a larger system,

Alexapure Pro Stainless Steel Water Filtration System – 5,000 Gallon Throughput Capacity

I have 5 dogs and myself to hydrate.

 

  • Removes up to 99.9999% of 200+ water impurities, including lead, bacteria, viruses, cysts, chlorine, fluoride, TCP, E. coli
  • Groundbreaking gravity block core filter with hybrid ceramic shell
  • Pour unfiltered water in, get sparkling clean drinking water out; Performance of filters may vary due to source water conditions, water turbidity and seasonal water conditions
  • Gravity fed filtration runs without electricity making it essential for emergencies
  • Raw water capacity: 8.5 liters (2.25 gallons) – Filtered water capacity: 8.5 liters (2.25 gallons)

As we all know the toxins that comes with living in paradise with an active volcano are nothing to mess with… Most of the population on the Big Island rely on water catchment systems. For you who are not familiar with this. Rain water is caught from metal top roofs and the water is stored in a large tank . Then it is filtered as it comes into the house plumbing and the water is ran through a Ultra violet light that kills the microorganisms. Then it comes to your tap where I run it through my Alexapure Pro Stainless Steel Water Filtration System – 5,000 Gallon Throughput Capacity

Don’t forget to buy the Extra filters. Better to have at least 5. Especially if you are making a survival kit..  This is great upgrade from your regular filter. Not all filters are created equal. Yes you will pay a little bit more, but you get a lot more filter and cleaner water.

Being Good To The Earth: Weed Control


Experimenting with table salt for weed control

Trying to find new methods for killing weeds and keeping them away without adding heavy toxins into the soil is a chore. But I hope this new trick works.

I am using regular table salt in a shaker and lightly dusting the weed.

I have applied it to the areas I need control over the most. You need to be careful when using table salt or any salt for that matter.

You only want to apply the salt to the areas that you never want anything ever to grow again; edges of driveways, sidewalks or along fence lines. Less work using the weed whacker.

 

You can also use this to kill a tree trunk.

Drill 1/2 inch holes in top stump and pour the salt in the holes.

 

 

 

I have also used White Vinegar for weed control around plants. And that worked awesome.

It killed the weed and left the plant healthy and vibrant. Vinegar actually gives much needed nutrients to the plant that have been lost from the soil.

 

 

I bought a new weed sprayer and added the vinegar and went to spraying. Weeds died off completely in about a week and left the grass and plants healthy.

 

You can also mix the vinegar and salt together to really kill some heavy  hard to kill weeds or plants.

Many Home Owners Are Choosing To Remodel, Instead Of Relocation.


REMODELING YOUR HOME?

Are you ready to take on the task of painting and a slight remodel?

Many home owners are choosing to remodel instead of relocation. I am on that journey now. WeeWHOOOOOOO!!!

BY: Cynthia Stanard    February 16, 2018

If you are remodeling please make sure to check the contractor’s license. If you are using a “Handy Man” make sure you get references and check them. Don’t get scammed or fooled because of a good “DEAL”.

Like my Daddy told me, “Just because it’s cheap, Don’t mean it’s good.

There are many scammers out there so “BE AWARE“ of who you are dealing with. You may want to check online @Google. Just enter the company name or person’s name. Check with the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org)  to see if they are in “good standing”.

If you are just starting to think about remodeling you might want to check out one of the many www.HGTV.com home remodeling shows. They have great ideas for all areas of the home. And if you are interested in tackling the project yourself don’t forget to check out www.youtube.com videos on DIY videos. They have step by step videos by many professionals on everything.

If you are going to do the project yourself and are using a “Warehouse” type to buy your products, I would choose my own wood and other items and have the order delivered or I would go through a reputable wood supplier to choose and deliver.

Store Comparison Home Depot Hilo Hawaii, HPM Building Supply Hilo, Hawaii and Argus Building Supply Hilo, Hawaii.

Talking about getting screwed… Today’s story starts off at receiving a sub-standard product on an order that was recently handpicked by Home Depot order pullers. Delivery was great by Hawaiian Movers; I do believe that’s who it was.

For the past 17 years I have dealt with HPM Building Supply and Argus Building Supply located in Hilo. Building my house I bought my lumber from Argus Building Supply and HPM. The lumber all came in great shape. No split pieces, end pieces or chunks of missing wood. Throughout the years I have continued to order wood from Argus and HPM. Not one time did I receive anything close to Home Depot’s poor quality. I rate Argus and HPM pickers at a 10 compared to Home Depot.

Home Depot takes a 3 on a scale of low 1 to 10 high. Not sure how they train there pullers at Home depot, but what a disappointment. Most of my 1x4x12 was scrap wood. Not one of them came with one decent face that wasn’t tore up in some fashion. That’s if it was not a first cut after the bark is stripped, banding marks, grease or oil on the boards, most of the boards had the 1” side face was ripped off. The other lumber rates about a 6. I have always gone and chosen my own wood and packed into my truck. But this time I figured they could handle it. Obviously I was wrong… And was I going to wait for another delivery… no.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My first step in my remodeling project was to paint the exterior and replace the trim on my house. I expected to sand with 100 grit sandpaper and add minor putty as usual. I had to putty and sand every board with 40 grade sandpaper and finish with a smooth surface with 100 grade sandpaper. The wood was so bad I should have returned it. The wood actually needed to be put through a planer, sides and corners remade with wood putty. I used 3 large cans of wood putty from Ace Hardware in Keaau and 3 days of sanding @8 hours a day. Home Depot only had plastic wood putty to repair the boards. I prefer the real deal. All I can say is thank god I am very experienced in finishing carpentry.

Speaking of ACE hardware Keaau, the staff is very knowledgeable. They really know their stuff. They also carry Shindawa Weed Eaters. Best for the Jungle. I have been through 5 craftsman weed eaters. One Shindawa that was used for 7 years, until it was stolen. Also ACE brand Metal Rust paint is very good.

Now with the new exterior paint by BEHR Marque Semi-Gloss, I have confidence the exterior house paint will last another 12 Years if not more as stated. The paint guy was spot on at Home Depot I give him a 10. Also the exterior Primer and Paint in one by BEHR is awesome also. I use exterior paint for the interior also. So will see how long this paint lasts. Check out my reviews on Painting Your House 101.

The Journey living in Hawaii. I built my own house from cutting trees to clearing land and building from the ground up. Learning along the way what will withstand the harsh salty air and the brutal rain storms. I am glad I was smart when I chose stucco for my exterior walls. It seems like other materials have gone to ruin in some way or another. Every piece of metal has rusted and flaked away into dust. Any wood exposed to the elements has deteriorated into spongy nothings. Constant Maintenance, everything needs to be painted or replaced here after a few years. I can’t tell you how many BBQS that I have laid to rest because of rust. I thank my luck stars that I have plenty of experience in all facets of construction, maintenance and the remodeling trades.

OOH So Yummy Breakfast from a box!!!


Love Grown is revolutionizing breakfast with what they call “the power blend” of navy, lentil, and garbanzo beans! They have launched a selection of nutritious cereals that are also gluten-free and low sodium.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am enjoying a bowl of Frosted Mighty Flakes as I write this review. This is actually the 3rd time I have eaten them, so I assure you they are delicious. They are lightly frosted and the frosted part is perfectly sweetened. They stay firm and the flakes didn’t get soggy. I actually had to leave my bowl for 10 minutes and when I returned they were still firm. I was amazed to say the least. I actually was full and satisfied until lunch rolled around. I have switched my breakfast cereal to Love Grown. So I will be reviewing the entire line they have to offer.

 

 

 

 

These are sweetened with Cane Syrup and they are labeled Vegan. Not that I care about the Vegan part so much, but as a result I have experienced a cleaner selection of products. To me that means lower sodium and prefer cane syrup over sugar or fake substitute product. NON GMO and Gluten Free are important factors also.

I Think This Is The Best One, Counters Aging

Here is some interesting news I have discovered over that last couple of months.

Since I do reviews on products and such I actually have to use the products. Good or Bad, and I must say I am very impressed with Apple Cider Vinegar and Vinegar period. I was skeptical at first but have seen the Light as they say…

Plain Regular Cheap Apple Cider Vinegar I use for your body:

ACV as a rinse after your bath or shower.  1 teaspoon of vinegar in a glass 16 oz. (plastic preferred), just in case you drop it. Pre-Warning NOW!!! Do Not do your head until last. You do not want to open your eyes after pouring the vinegar over your head. It Burns so bad.. LOL… Trust Me I know from experience… I am far from perfect…

No, you will not smell like vinegar the next day. Maybe for 30 minutes after you get out of the shower. Actually it will reduce your body odor. I take my shower right before bed. I feel the vinegar helps me stay cooler at night and sleep better. You ladies going through menopause might want to try this… I am 56 yrs. And I half reduce my nights sweat in half if not more.  I also love the way my skin is so smooth and tight in the morning.

As we age so does our skin unfortunately. I am always looking for ways to improve my overall body these days. It’s like sometimes I wake up and just say “WOW” Really!!!  You’re doing this to me!!! TODAY!!!

My blonde hair started going dirty grey but what I noticed after I started using ACV my hair started to lighten and became softer and thicker.

So what I have found out about Apple Cider Vinegar is that you can drink the organic with the mother in it (I use Bragg’s for that). These are known facts from Bragg’s website. These are just a few things. I will be going in depth in my other articles.http://www.nowlifestyle.com/get_banner_script.php?id=278832&bid=4“>

This is great for heartburn

Thick toe nails due to toe nail fungus

If your nails are brittle, it will strengthen your nails

I think this is the best one, Counters Aging. Along with a good diet and my 7 minute workout I should be spinning the years right off…

There are so many minerals that our bodies need from vinegar. We just are no longer getting them from our food that has been grown in pesticide flooded land and stripped of the minerals the soil had to offer. Now most farms are just a growing base and no more. You are better off growing a garden. Build a green house and grow your own…

Hemorrhoids Problems: Take a cotton ball and gentle apply to the Hemorrhoids. It will sting, but the pain subsides and the Hemorrhoids shrink. You can even get rid of them completely by drinking the Bragg’s ACV w/ “Mother” and that helps tremendously heal you from the inside out. This comes highly recommended to treat this problem.

Stay Tuned for more on vinegar.

UO Smart Beam Laser Portable Mini Projector


UO Smart Beam Laser Portable Mini Projector

About the product
  • Until now, most projectors used either LED, LCD or DLP as the light source and they all possessed one bothersome problem: Focus needed to be adjusted manually. This was especially a big problem for portable projectors since they were meant to be carried around and the user had to adjust the focus every single time
  • Finally, a portable projector that doesn’t require focus adjustment came out with laser technology. Focus-free meant that projected image was never out of focus, no matter what surface it was displayed on. Laser technology also made it possible for the projector to produce vivid colors incomparable to those by other LED, LCD and DLP projectors
  • There are currently 3 portable laser projectors in the world: SK Telecom’s UO Smart Beam Laser, S company, and C company. S and C use technology very similar to that of an electron gun. One can see through a camera lens, electron beam wave flowing on the projected image like an analog TV. This laser beam can cause serious harm to human eye

if your dreams dont scare you theyre not big enough
Success Stories http://www.sand2h2osuccess.net

If you ever wanted a Change in Lifestyle this is the team to get on board with.

There once was a thing called dreams that you had. As the years have flown by so have those dreams of financial freedom. Or where those dreams replaced by a 9 to 5 dead end job or a house full of kids. Or perhaps your just not happy with the way your job situation is not working in your favor lately. What ever it is, perhaps you need to start dreaming again. Start turning those dreams into reality.

I was stuck in the Grind. Everyday Monday through Friday driving 1.5 hours just to get to the office and another 1.5 hours back home. We don’t want to even think about Fridays. That’s a 2 hour ride home. My money went into gas, tires and brakes and no money left over for fun. I had even forgotten the word fun…

There are several ways to make an income from home. There is the hard way, the Harder way or there is an efficient easy way. Which road do you choose? For awhile I choose the Harder Poorer road to financial destruction.

Have you always dreamed of being your own Boss? Or maybe having your office at home? So many of us have.
One day I took that leap. I quit the 9 to 5 and joined the ranks of entrepreneurs.
I had always been in some kind of side business my whole life.
But I didn’t have a proven system and it was tedious and time consuming and usually little or no money was made.
Going to the office 16 hour days and 7 days a week. Plenty of times I wondered what exactly I had gotten myself into. I was working longer hours and harder than I ever did working for someone else.
I was always going to classes or training courses to learn more. Some of these courses cost $5000 for a 2 week course. I came out sometimes more confused than when I went in.

ultimate dot com lifestyle

Finally this year I found the right Business education courses that set me free financially. Now with a few hours a day I am making more than my share of the good side of business.
Today I want to share My Online Business Education with you.

Trust me, I was skeptical at first. I did not want to depart with any more of my Hard earned money through these so called online marketing training courses. At first I only spent $49. I took my first 5 courses and really saw the light at the end of the tunnel coming my way. I bought the Silver and Gold courses. Still advancing today. My goals are set in stone. I am taking my earnings and re-investing them right back into myself through My Online Business Education. My goal is to reinvest as much of my earnings right back into my new business so in the end when I am ready to retire my company will be worth something.
So I am very excited to show you what I have found to be a proven method to online marketing.

Don’t Be Fooled By The EGGS Cover… Yummy for your Tummy and Body


Don’t Be Fooled By The EGGS Cover…
Eggs are so nutritious that they’re often referred to as “nature’s multivitamin.”

They also have unique antioxidants and powerful brain nutrients that many people are deficient in.

Here are some reasons why eggs are among the healthiest foods on the planet.

  • Whole Eggs Are Among The Most Nutritious Foods on Earth
  • One whole egg contains an amazing range of nutrients.
  • Just imagine… the nutrients in there are enough to turn a single fertilized cell into an entire baby chicken.
  • Eggs are loaded with vitamins, minerals, high quality proteins, good fats and various other lesser-known nutrients.
  • One large egg contains (1):
  • Vitamin B12 (Cobalamin): 9% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): 15% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin A: 6% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): 7% of the RDA.
  • Selenium: 22% of the RDA.

Eggs also contain small amounts of almost every vitamin and mineral required by the human body… including calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, manganese, Vitamin E, Folate and many more.

A large egg contains 77 calories, with 6 grams of quality protein, 5 grams of fat and trace amounts of carbohydrates.

It’s very important to realize that almost all the nutrients are contained in the yolk, the white contains only protein.

That should make you want to eat eggs right now. But here are some more reasons why Eggs are the Healthiest Food on Earth.

  • Eggs Improve Your Cholesterol Profile and do NOT Raise Your Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
  • The main reason people have been warned about eggs is that they’re loaded with cholesterol.
  • One large egg contains 212 mg of cholesterol, which is a LOT compared to most other foods.
    However, just because a food contains cholesterol doesn’t mean that it will raise the bad cholesterol in the blood.
  • The liver actually produces cholesterol, every single day. If you eat cholesterol, then your liver produces less. If you don’t eat cholesterol, then your liver produces more of it.
  • The thing is, many studies show that eggs actually improve your cholesterol profile.
  • Eggs tend to raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol and they tend to change the LDL (the “bad”) cholesterol to a large subtype which is not associated with an increased risk of heart disease (2, 3, 4).
  • One study discovered that 3 whole eggs per day reduced insulin resistance, raised HDL and increased the size of LDL particles in men and women with metabolic syndrome (5).
  • Multiple studies have examined the effects of egg consumption on the risk of cardiovascular disease and found no association between the two (6, 7, 8).

However, some studies do show an increased risk of cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients. This needs further research though and probably doesn’t apply on a low-carb diet, which can in many cases reverse type II diabetes (9, 10, 11).

Bottom Line: Studies show that eggs actually improve the cholesterol profile. They raise HDL (the good) cholesterol and increase the size of LDL particles, which should lower the risk of heart disease.

Eggs Are Loaded With Choline, an Important Nutrient For The Brain

  • Choline is a lesser-known nutrient that is often grouped with the B-complex vitamins.
  • Choline is an essential nutrient for human health and is needed for various processes in the body.
  • It is required to synthesize the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is also a component of cell membranes.
  • A low choline intake has been implicated in liver diseases, cardiovascular disease and neurological disorders (12).
  • This nutrient may be especially important for pregnant women. Studies show that a low choline intake can raise the risk of neural tube defects and lead to decreased cognitive function in the offspring (13).
  • In a dietary survey in the U.S. from 2003-2004, over 90% of people ate less than the daily recommended amount of choline (14)!
  • The best sources of choline in the diet are egg yolks and beef liver. One large egg contains 113 mg of Choline.

 

Eggs Contain High Quality Proteins With a Perfect Amino Acid Profile

  • Proteins are the main building blocks of the body and serve both structural and functional purposes.
  • They consist of amino acids that are linked together, kind of like beads on a string, then folded into complex shapes.
  • There are about 21 amino acids that the body uses to build its proteins.
  • The body can not produce 9 of these amino acids, which are deemed as “essential” and must be gotten from the diet.
  • The quality of a protein source is determined by its relative amounts of these essential amino acids. A protein source that contains all of them in the right ratios is a good source of protein.
  • Eggs are among the best sources of protein in the diet. In fact, the biological value (a measure of protein quality) is often evaluated by comparing it to eggs, which are given the perfect score of 100.

Eggs Are Loaded With Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Which Protect The Eyes

  • There are two antioxidants in eggs that can have powerful protective effects on the eyes.
  • They are called Lutein and Zeaxanthin, both found in the yolk.
  • Lutein and Zeaxanthin tend to accumulate in the retina, the sensory part of the eye.
  • These antioxidants significantly reduce the risk of Macular Degeneration and Cataracts, which are among the leading causes of vision impairment and blindness in the elderly (15, 16, 17).
  • In one study, eating 1.3 egg yolks per day for 4.5 weeks increased blood levels of Zeaxanthin by 114-142% and Lutein by 28-50% (18).

 

Eggs For Breakfast Can Help You Lose Body Fat

  • Eggs contain only trace amounts of carbohydrates, but plenty of protein and fat.
  • They score very high on a scale called the Satiety Index, which is a measure of how much foods contribute to satiety (19).
  • For this reason, it is not surprising to see studies where eating eggs for breakfast leads to fat loss.
  • In one study, 30 overweight or obese women consumed either a breakfast of eggs or a breakfast of bagels. Both breakfasts had the same amount of calories.
  • The women in the egg group felt more full and ate less calories for the rest of the day and for the next 36 hours (20).

In another study that went on for 8 weeks, eating eggs for breakfast lead to significant weight improvements compared to the same amount of calories from bagels. The egg group (21):

  • Lost 65% more body weight.
  • Lost 16% more body fat.
  • Had a 61% greater reduction in BMI.
  • Had a 34% greater reduction in waist circumference (a good marker for the dangerous abdominal fat).

Not All Eggs Are The Same

It’s important to keep in mind that not all eggs are created equal.

Hens are often raised in factories, caged and fed grain-based feed that alters the final nutrient composition of the eggs. It is best to buy Omega-3 enriched or pastured eggs, they are more nutritious and healthier.

However, conventional supermarket eggs are still a good choice if you can’t afford or access the others.

To top things off, eggs are cheap, taste awesome and go with almost any food.

Eggs really are an egg-ceptional super-food.

Eggs Scrambled with Onion, Garlic and Sweet Cherry Tomatoes

Servings: 1

Sauté 1/4 sweet onion and a smashed garlic clove over medium-high heat in 1 teaspoon canola or olive oil until almost soft. Add a handful of chopped tomatoes to the pan (or any other vegetables you happen to have, such as chopped spinach, kale, mushrooms or peppers) and cook for another 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to very low. In a separate bowl, whisk two eggs. Pour eggs into the pan containing the onion, garlic and tomato — add 1 ounce low-fat cheese, if you wish. Stir continuously until eggs are cooked. Pour over toasted, whole rye bread. Bon Appitite…

WHAT DOES “A CUP OF JOE” MEAN TO YOU?


WHAT DOES “A CUP OF JOE” MEAN TO YOU?

Are You A Consumer Or Connoisseur of Great Health Benefits?

What is the best cup of coffee you have ever had?

by: http://www.orgnatlife.com

Well that could be a long list or a very short one. The bigger BOXED coffee shops as Star$$$$’s really does not appeal to me. Boring, run of the mill. It’s the smaller shops that actually make a good cup of coffee, or maybe it’s the atmosphere that makes it taste so good. Either way the atmosphere is comfy and inviting. Big oversized chairs to relax in and read a book or chat with others while you sip that wonderful drink.. Sounds like home.

Speaking of terminology.. Lord give me a break. If one more establishment comes up with another tongue twisting drink that takes 5 minutes to order and another 20 minutes to make, I will have to stop altogether. What ever happen to the good Old days when a cup of Joe was just that a cup of joe?

Well we are about to find out… When espresso came to America and where did espresso come from originally? Italy you say…  NO.

Espresso first appeared in Italy in the early 20th century. Coffee had already become a necessity to Italian daily life thanks to North African Muslims who brought it through Venice’s ports during the Renaissance. We owe much of the mystique coffee to Venetian merchants who charged wealthy patrons hefty sums to try out this newfangled drink when the first coffeehouses opened in the 1640’s.

Fast forward about 200 years and we find business man Luigi Bezzera tinkering away with this coffee pot to find a way to make coffee faster. In 1903, Bezzera owned a manufacturing business and was frustrated by the time-consuming process of brewing his own coffee at home each morning.

He soon found that adding steam pressure to the machine not only cut down on the brewing process but also produced a stronger, more robust cup of coffee. This new quick-brew process drew out the coffee bean’s best qualities but somehow avoided over extraction.

Bezzera immediately named his invention the “Fast Coffee Machine”. Since the word ‘espresso’ means fast in Italian, the name of the beverage the machine produced was quickly shortened to what we know today.

Unfortunately, Bezzera wasn’t as talented at marketing and sales as he was at engineering. In 1905, another businessman named Desidero Pavoni purchased the machine’s rights from Bezzera and had it patented.

Nowadays you don’t have to travel to Italy to experience Bezzera’s handiwork. The recent boom in espresso’s popularity has brought this Italian treat to every mall and street corner. Next time you decide to pick one up, take a moment to think about the more than 100 years of history inside your cup.

BREWING…

There are several ways to brew the black magic. Easy, put the water in and walk away to grinding, tampering, brewing and mixing the syrups to get that special taste.

For myself I threw out the Drip coffee maker and opted for the french press carafe. To have a rich full bodied aroma wafting through the house is like a beautiful melody running through your mind over and over.

I still say the best was the Percolator, back in the day. I can remember my grandma making coffee on the stove. Watching the coffee going up into the glass bubble on top and back down again, becoming darker in color each time it reached the bubble. Then the electric percolator my mom used was the highlight of the 60’s. Same technique just plug it in and watch it go.. No more standing by the stove and waiting for that perfect cup of coffee.

The Automatic drip machine came into the light. Wow everyone thought this was the BOMB.. Yes it gave you your pot of coffee in 5 minutes. But where was that rich wafting aroma? Gone with the 5 minute cup.

Then we step up to the home brew station for espresso. Ohh, what magic we have in our possession. Soon every house had an espresso machine big and small.

The latest is the One Cup Brew machine. Bringing you pre-made espresso in 50 flavors with no hassle or mess. Every day is a coffee rainbow.

Have fun and try a different blend and technique today…. You might be surprised at the difference a “Technique” actually makes.

Don’t forget about the health benefits of coffee. Black Coffee, not that candy coated crud or Super Hype added extract.

Please!!! Regular black coffee is just fine for me.
