- According to the University of Manchester in the UK, loud music can make you feel happier. Be careful though they say, ‘too loud may risk permanent hearing damage’. I believe this survey to be true as I go into my ‘happy place’ when I put my ear buds in and listen to my music which I have to say is rather loud.
2. Good news for chocolate lovers. A British medical review of research on 114,000 people found that those who ate the most chocolate had a 37 percent decreased risk of developing heart disease and 29 percent decreased risk of suffering a stroke compared to those who ate less or abstained completely. 70% cacao is supposed to be the best for your health.
3. There is a way to outsmart a habit – US scientists say that up to 40% of your daily actions are actually habits formed over the years. It is basically your brains way of conserving effort or discomfort. However you can outsmart them by trading an old habit for a new one such as replacing a sugar fix with a walk. Replacing a cigarette for a piece of chewing gum or maybe go work in the garden. It helps the brain believe you can change
4. I read this on the packet of Dr Sheffields toothpaste – Dr Sheffield was the inventor of toothpaste in a tube since 1850.
FLUORIDE IS A DRUG THAT CAN BE ACUTELY TOXIC IF SWALLOWED IN LARGE AMOUNTS.
You may know that fluoride can be found in your drinking water; however, you may not know that it is also in many processed beverages and foods containing water. Including juice, beer and even your morning cup of coffee. Currently, over 200 million American’s are dosed daily with fluoride making it the most widely distributed drug in America.
A SIMPLE CHOICE:
Did you know that the mucous membranes in the mouth allow chemicals to pass directly into the blood stream where they can accumulate into toxic levels.
Most of us in the modern chemical based world are constantly exposed to all sorts of toxic substances in the air we breathe, in the water we drink (Plug for Kangen water) , and in the food we eat. We should strive to eliminate any source of contamination that we can, and try to stay as toxin free as possible. We may not be able to control everything, but we can control what we choose to place in our mouth and the mouths of our children.
You can only buy this at a CVS store in America. Sorry everyone else, but there are other brands that do not have fluoride in their toothpaste
5. The queen broke with protocol and allowed her troops to play the US national anthem for the first time ever during the changing of the guard ceremony as a tribute to the 9/11 victims and the Americans in England who were unable to return home.
The Memorial for our Tom Was held last Friday Week
The weather was partly sunny and partly bleak
Most of his friends wore the distinctive white hat
As Tom used to wear, rain, wind or hail on his head it sat
Our Tom he was a return soldier a Vietnam Vet
For His countries appreciation, The Purple Heart medal he did get
To the Houston National Cemetery we all rode our bikes in formation
As we are so proud of him as a person and he fought for the USA nation
To witness this ceremony for me was an honor and a blessing
The patriot guards Standing attention with the pride they were addressing
As the ceremony started tears from Heaven fell again
Those men stood at attention with the flags, in that pouring rain
The tradition of the gun salute and the bugle playing Taps
Made you feel so proud to be a witness, gave me goose bumps as silence lapse
The flag folding ceremony was equally impressive with great precision
To his son it was presented, I am sure Tom would have been proud with that decision
Just as the ceremony finished, no kidding, there was a single clap of thunder
Some one said the Gates of Heaven just opened, was he present?, it makes you wonder
I love all this ‘Pomp and Ceremony’. No one in the world knows how to do this like the English and especially the Royal Family. It is going to be a happy, glorious day. I am going to sit in front of the TV with my hat on and a glass of champagne and take in every second of it. I am going to love it.
Here are some of the pictures that have been taken by Boston.com. As usual they are spectacular.
