2. Difference between a conventional (caged chicken) egg and a pasture raised egg.
A study done in Australia and published in the Australian Women’sWeekly, regarding women and alcohol say that:- 13.7% of women over 50 drink alcohol daily (thats me). 43.1 % of women say they drink at least weekly. 9.5% of women of all ages drink daily. I guess approximately 33.7% do not drink at all.
GreenPaws Flea and Tick Products Directory is an excellent resource to gauge the safety of your pet’s products (and to find safer alternatives). If y0u go to this site and put in the product you intend to use on your animal it will assist if possible to inform you of its toxicity. It has been disclosed in research that poisons in tick collars can also poison children and adults. Especially children when playing with their pets so it is important to make sure you are using a less harmful tick and flea collar.

2. How to tell if the eggs you are about to purchase are fresh.
The number next to the expiration date, say for example 268.This is the number of days in the year (25th September) when those eggs were placed in the carton. The sell by date is say 14th November. Those eggs have been in that carton for 45 days by that date. Not so fresh in my opinion.
The example above – 211 days is July 30 so by the sell by date those eggs will have been in the carton just under a month.
3. Richard Nixon once smuggled a suitcase full of weed through the airport for Louis Armstrong.
According to Snopes .
Supposedly true Louis Armstrong was flying back from Europe, and on the same plane was
then-Congressman Richard Nixon. Nixon was apparently a fan of Louis and
they chatted throughout the flight.
When they arrived in New York, Louis said to Nixon, listen I’m an old man
and I’ve got all this stuff to carry, why don’t you carry my trumpet for
me and help me out?
And that is the story of how Richard Nixon carried Louis Armstrong’s stash
of weed through customs at the New York airport

5. Earth used to be covered with giant mushrooms that were 24 feet tall and three feet wide, instead of trees.
From around 420 to 350 million years ago, when land plants were still the relatively new kids on the evolutionary block and “the tallest trees stood just a few feet high,” giant spires of life poked from the Earth. “The ancient organism boasted trunks up to 24 feet (8 meters) high and as wide as three feet (one meter),” said National Geographic in 2007. With the help of a fossil dug up in Saudi Arabia scientists finally figured out what the giant creature was: a fungus. (We think.)
The towering fungus spires would have stood out against a landscape scarce of such giants, said New Scientist in 2007.

1. What Brassica vegetables are:
These vegetables rank among the top 10 healthiest and give you the most folate which is a B vitamin which is naturally present in these vegetables and an important vitamin for pregnant woman. However a study of 1391 women released in May 2016 revealed that excessive amounts of folate may increase the risk for autism.
So the old saying “Everything in moderation” is very relevant with this vitamin.

2. In a study of 512,891 adults, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, those who ate fresh fruit daily had a 40 percent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease.
3. If you stop eating by 6pm till 8am the next day you will help to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s dramatically plus lose a bit of weight around the waist as well.
That 14 hours of fasting will put the brain in resting mode and reduce the brain from aging.

4. Japan’s population consumes up to 5 million kit Kat bars every day.
Not the original chocolate variety, they have a choice of strawberry, cheese Cake, green tea, sweet potato , red bean sandwich and sake and there is more:- 300 flavors in fact.
In my opinion a great way to ruin a Kit Kat bar.

More than 70 percent of Americans consume 10 percent of their daily calories from sugar. And about 10 percent of Americans consume one in every four of their calories from sugar.
We’ve been told to swap eggs for cereal. But that recommendation is dead wrong. In fact, it’s very likely that this bad advice has killed millions of Americans.
Eggs are among the few foods that I would classify as “superfoods.” They are loaded with nutrients, some of which are rare in the modern diet.
A study showed that your risk of heart attacks doubles if sugar makes up 20 percent of your calories.
So eat up your eggs!
In one study showed, 2 eggs per day for 6 weeks increased HDL levels (Good cholesterol) by 10%
Here are 10 reasons you should be eating eggs every day.
1. Eggs Are Incredibly Nutritious
2. Eggs Are High in Cholesterol, But They Don’t Adversely Affect Blood Cholesterol
3. Eggs Raise HDL (The “Good”) Cholesterol
4. Eggs Contain Choline – an Important Nutrient That Most People Don’t Get Enough of
5. Eggs Turn LDL Cholesterol From Small, Dense to Large, Linked to a Reduced Risk of Heart Disease
6. Eggs Contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, Antioxidants That Have Major Benefits For Eye Health
7. In the Case of Omega-3 or Pastured Eggs, They Lower Triglycerides as Well
8. Eggs Are High in Quality Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids in The Right Ratios
9. Eggs do NOT Raise Your Risk of Heart Disease and May Reduce The Risk of Stroke
10. Eggs Are Highly Fulfilling and Tend to Make You Eat Fewer Calories, Helping You to Lose Weight
Bottom Line: Egg consumption consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL (the “good”) cholesterol, which is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases.
Be fussy with the eggs you buy.
Eggs lose flavor the longer they sit in the fridge, so get the freshest eggs around.Cage free eggs or free range or even better straight from a farmer who has his poultry grass fed and even better than that your own chooks.
Whisk three eggs vigorously with a little salt and pepper in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth—evenly incorporating the whites and the yolks at this stage helps ensure a smooth, custardy omelet.
Heat the skillet.
Heat a pat of butter over medium in a small nonstick skillet until it bubbles gently. Non stick pan is the best to use. Pour the whisked eggs into the skillet and immediately start scrambling them with a rubber spatula.
Don’t Over Scramble
Don’t scramble too long. As soon as the eggs form small loose curds and the mixture is thickened, stop scrambling and shake the skillet a bit so the eggs form an even, solid layer, making sure they extend to the edge of the pan. As the eggs start to set up, sprinkle whatever fillings you desire down the middle—a classic French omelet with fines herbes involves finely chopped parsley, chives, chervil, and tarragon, but any soft herbs, in any combination, will be delicious. A little crumbled soft goat cheese makes a lovely addition, too.
Perfect the tilt and roll.
Tilt the pan away from you over the burner, and starting with the edge closest to you, start to gently roll the omelet onto itself and away from you, at roughly 1-inch intervals, with your rubber spatula. Don’t worry if the eggs are still a little runny at this stage—they’ll continue to set as you roll, and undercooked now just means they won’t be overcooked later.
Keep nudging the omelet away from you until it’s formed a roll at the base of the tilted pan. Immediately remove from the heat.
Flip and finish
Complete your roll by tipping the omelet out of the pan and onto a plate. Tipping this way means the omelet sits seam-side down on the plate; in other words, it looks perfect. Sprinkle with more finely chopped fresh herbs and finish with a little bit of sea salt and, if you like, freshly ground black pepper.
