A Smile For Friday

My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late-model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn.

He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair

He said with excitement, “You appear quite elderly to be driving.”

“Well, yes, I am,” she replied proudly.  “I’ll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough, that I don’t even need a driver’s licence anymore.”

He asked “How do you know?”

“The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a driver’s licence

I told him, yes and handed it to him.”

He took scissors out of the drawer, cut the licence into pieces, and threw them in the waste basket, saying, ‘You won’t need this anymore.’

So I thanked him and left!!!!!”

Just wanted to say, “Hi!”  “HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY!”

A smile – is a sign of joy.

A hug – is a sign of love.

A laugh – is a sign of happiness.

Who Knew Who Knew – Ross❤️

Who Knew, Who Knew

Who knew that the last time together, was the last.
Almost Two years ago, Jon’s Wedding, time has gone fast

It was so good to see you, as meeting over the years were few and far between
Usually at family gathers where most of us would convene

So glad we don’t see the signs and cannot see ahead
Although your future, from the doctor was read

The news was unbelievable, heart wrenching for us all to say the least
For your life to end by such a mean and most times uncontrollable beast

I wont linger on the pain we still all feel
I am sure we all thought, no sweat he will heal

It was not to be, so I just picture you Kite surfing at sea
I picture the love you always had for the water, and seemingly carefree

You seem to make many friends wherever you went
Few beers, laugh and a joke, in my mind, time well spent

Well there are a few Mackie’s now, up there where you are going
As the years go by, the numbers will keep growing

But that is ok, till we meet again, if you are still making your home brew
Save a glass for me, so we can indulge in a few
God bless you Ross, rest in peace, for He Knew, He Knew
Aunty L

Something to Make You Smile On A Monday

Bert feared his wife Peg wasn’t hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid.

Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.

The doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

“Here’s what you do,” said the doctor, “stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.” Then in a normal tone he asks, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”

No response.

So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, “Peg, what’s for dinner?”

Still no response.

Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, “Honey, what’s for dinner?”

Again, he gets no response.

So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. “Honey, what’s for dinner?”

Again there is no response.

So he walks right up behind her. “Peg, what’s for dinner?”

(I just love this!)

“Dammit, Bert, for the FIFTH time, CHICKEN!”

Shilajit – Know What it is?

I am always looking for new and exciting stuff about health and nutrition. I came across this article while I was looking up information on Fulvic acid and Humic acid.

The reason for that is my Father in Law who is 80, became very sick and was not expected to live. Could not walk was not eating and lost a lot of weight. His daughter was already taking both these acids, she was suffering from depression, irritable bowel and other problems and all the symptoms improved dramatically. She started her Dad on these two acids to see if it helped.
Her father started taking both Fulvic and Humic acids and now is driving walking a mile and to the surprise of his doctor has given him a clean bill of health.
So I went searching and found that Dr Axe actually had articles on these substances which I am imparting on to you,  but you do need to go to his site Draxe.com and read all the articles.
First of all I am starting with Shilajit. If you don’t know what it is,  go some research and take a look at the info-gram below.

Giant hogweed – A Toxic Plant

Giant Hogweed

Giant Hogweed

Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.

Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes. 

If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:

  • Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
  • Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
  • If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
  • See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.

If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions

Did You Know – 05/20/2013

lottery
1. A former math professor with a PhD from Stanford University specializing in statistics has won the lottery FOUR times.
Joan Ginther, 63, won almost $21 million since her winning spree began in 1993. At the time that she won the fourth jackpot, the AP wrote that her chances of winning the lottery was 1 in 18 septillion, (18 with 24 zeros after it) almost an impossibility.

2. In exchange for Pepsi products, Russia gave Pepsi 17 submarines, a cruiser, a frigate, and a destroyer. The countertrade arrangement where the rights to sell Russian vodka in the US in exchange for Pepsi (to be sold in Russia) was a huge story in the 1990’s.
With 17 submarines, this meant that, for a short period of time, Pepsi-Cola had the world’s seventh largest submarine fleet. Eventually the fleet of 20 naval vessels will be sold for scrap steel, thereby paying for Pepsi products being moved to the Soviet Union.

3. The Iconic Wall street charging bull is an illegal piece of street art. The 7,100 pound bronze sculpture was originally created by Arturo Di Modica who spent about $360,000 to build and install the bull after the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of “Strength, power and hope” for the American people. It was installed outside the New York Stock Exchange as a gift to the City on December 15 1989. The same day it was towed away by the NYPD and impounded. Because of public outcry it was brought back and placed “temporarily” back at the north end of Bowling Green Park where it stands today. The bull is still technically a “temporary installment. The city does not own the sculpture and it has been for sale By Di Modica since 2004 on the condition that the buyer does not move it from its current location

4. One in 200 men are related to 13th century Mongolian leader Genghis Khan.
(that guy must have been very busy)
An international team of geneticists has made the astonishing discovery that more than 16 million men in central Asia have the same male Y chromosome as the great Mongol leader. His enthusiastic mating habits had created a lineage of more than 20,000 individuals,’ said team leader Dr Chris Tyler-Smith. ‘That now appears to account for around 8% of the men in central Asia.
