I am always looking for something different to add to the excitement of Christmas.

Make sure Santa has some beverage to see him on his way. I think these are fun.

1. 95% of Supercentenarians – that is those who live longer than 110 are women. Stem cells appear to regenerate faster in women.
A thorough search for longevity gene variants in 17 supercentenarians – average age 112 (the oldest was 116) – has drawn a blank. The Stanford University in California have done many studies but have not been able to come to any conclusion on why some people live longer than others.

2. That being in greenery soothes your brain. Being in greenery decreased anxiety, depression, anger and fatigue for adults. One study shows that kids with ADHD spent time in the natural outdoor environment had a reduction in their symptoms.
Another study shows that when you inhale forest air, you breathe in phytoncides, plant chemicals that have antibacterial and ant fungal qualities and increase the immune system’s disease-fighting natural killer cells.

3. American Football grew out of English sports such as rugby and soccer and became popular on American college campuses in the late 1800s.
It takes about 600 cows to make one full season’s worth of NFL footballs.
A cow has only a 1 in 17,420,000 chance of becoming an NFL football that is used in the Super Bowl.

4. Alabama was the first state in the United States to officially recognize Christmas in 1836.
Christmas wasn’t declared an official holiday in the United States until June 26, 1870 and Mistletoe (Viscum album) is from the Anglo-Saxon word misteltan, which means “little dung twig” because the plant spreads though bird droppings

Best Buy Wednesday – LED Winter Beanie (11/25/2015)

screen-shot-2015-11-24-at-1-15-29-pm
I saw this on Facebook and thought it would make a fantastic gift. It’s not expensive but a useful one.  I am going to get one for my Grandson who loves the outdoors. I can see this so handy for night time fishing, camping and early morning surfing when it is a little dark. In fact, it would be handy to keep in your vehicle in case of a breakdown and you do not have a flashlight. I am thinking I need to carry one on my motorcycle in case of a night time breakdown.

It is only $13 dollars as it is on a special deal. Great Christmas gift and a practical gift.

Best Buy Wednesday – All-natural flavor straws encourage milk drinking.

Another great gift for birthday party for kids or stocking filler for Christmas. I think these are terrific.

magic-milk-straws

We all know that milk does a body good, but many growing kids want more flavorful drinks. With Magic Milk Straws, even the most reluctant kids (and adults, too!) will be begging to drink a glass of milk everyday.

Each Magic Milk Straw is crammed with all-natural flavor beads which transform your milk into a delicious treat. As you sip, the beads dissolve and infuse tasty strawberry, chocolate, vanilla milkshake, or cookies and cream flavor into your milk.

Magic Milk Straws are low in sugar, lactose-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, and have zero fat and cholesterol. We currently offer 6-packs (all six of one particular flavor) as well as two bulk assortment packs. All straws are single-use.
