The Sky Was Filled with Angel Wings

This morning while riding my bike enjoying what the morning brings
I was amazed as the sky was filled with what I call angel wings

The clouds were painting the sky today, they had something to tell me something to say
Because it was about the time, on the other side of the world a friend passed away

Goodbye to a long time friend
Larry he fought ALS right to the end

It has left an empty space, a sad heart, hard to comprehend
Life at a distance so, Not enough time did we spend

Your spirit was strong and amazing
Your younger life full, fearless and blazing

But your last years were with illness and pain
So rest in peace Larry, never to feel that again

Each day the sky paints us a picture of many things
Today it was for Larry, it was full of Angel wings

Goodbye Larry

2. Babies from those families that have a furry pet are more likely to have high levels of two gut-friendly microbes that are linked to lower rates of childhood allergies and obesity.

3. Artichokes are packed with probiotics, which help the brain overcome worry and fear and helps make sleep come easier. Not into artichokes then onions and leeks will help with the same problems.

4. Tie your laces for a stronger knot. – The key is to tie the knot and bow in the opposite directions, not the same. You cross the left lace over the right to knot it, then cross the bow in the opposite way – Right over left.
Must be right because Mechanical engineers from University of California Berkeley in the States came up with this.
Freedom of speech has gone from that University bit at least they share the knowledge.


5.According to the University of Laughborough in the UK soaking in a bath of 40c water temperature, uses as much energy as a 30 minute walk.

Lost Two Precious Hours of my Life Yesterday which I will never get back

 

Just a quick note so I can save you money.

My Granddaughter and I went to see the Movie ‘Snatched’.  Cannot even give it one Star. 0 out of 10. The worst movie I have ever seen. Not a good Mothers day Present thats for sure. Hate it when I waste my time and money

I thought Amy Schumer was going to leave America if Trump got voted in for President. She should have gone before she inflicted the world with that movie. 

Don’t know what Goldie Hawn was thinking but she may think again before she does another movie with Ms Schumer.

Use shampoo sparingly

 

Use shampoo sparingly
Your hair won’t get any cleaner from using a palmful of product versus a dime-size amount, and washing every other day is healthier than shampooing daily.

Interesting Article on Cucumbers

 

I did not know this about the nutritional value of cucumbers.

 

Cucumbers are one of my most highly recommended vegetables, and if you have a garden, you can easily grow them at home. Aside from being able to control pesticide and fertilizer use, you’ll also avoid the wax applied to many commercially sold cucumbers. There are dozens of varieties that thrive in both cool and warm climates, although they can be a challenge to grow if temperatures are consistently in the mid-90s.

While made up of 90 to 95 percent water, cucumbers still manage to provide a host of valuable nutrients, including vitamins A, B5, C and K, along with manganese, potassium, magnesium, molybdenum, copper, silica and fiber. Cucumbers also contain lignans that bind with estrogen-related bacteria in the digestive tract, contributing to a reduced risk of several cancers, including breast, uterus, ovarian and prostate cancer.

Other phytonutrients called cucurbitacins — part of a larger group known as triterpenes, and the part of the cucumber that gives it a bitter taste — also inhibit cancer cell development. Preliminary findings also suggest cucumbers have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

In traditional medicine, cucumbers are used to treat headaches. The seeds are diuretic, and the juice — thanks to caffeic acid and vitamin C — can be used as an acne treatment and a soothing remedy for tired, puffy eyes.
