Alkaline For Health – Part One

I written many times on this subject.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that your body is in an Alkaline condition. It is essential to good health and prevent cancer, as cancer cells do not grow in an Alkaline environment.
When your body is Alkaline you will not have a weight problem, you will have more energy and you will be more alert as your brain function will be sharper, you will be stronger and an Alkaline diet is very anti – aging.
It is not always easy to keep it this way  the temptations of fast food and dining out on rich type food is all around us but to make a habit of it can be hard on your health.

 We all fall off the wagon from time to time, but as long as it is not part of your permanent lifestyle I think it would be safe to say you can jump back into a healthy diet the next day without too much damage.

I believe we can get a bit boring when we become eccentric about our eating habits and we end up not enjoying our food and no one enjoys having you over for dinner because you have become so picky. Just relax and don’t stress over it. Stress is another thing that can destroy an Alkaline body, but that’s for another day.   I believe that once you have changed your diet and spend time cooking healthy food you will notice the difference and not get the same pleasures out of tasteless  (sometimes tasty)  fast food.

  1. THE BASICS WALLET
    SHIPPED ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD

I love the look of these practical wallets. I have a similar type wallet for my cards but it is deteriorating fast with use because it is plastic.  This is a simple system, good material, and compact. It allows you to avail yourself to the cards you use most each day and store the rest in another compartment so that you are not fumbling though heaps of cards to find the one you want.

I think it’s a great practical gift idea. Something different and of good use.

The video below is an example of how the wallet works.

You can buy these for $19.99

Airport Security Made Easy + Go Australia!!

Screen Shot 2014-06-18 at 12.05.30 PM

Bit hard to concentrate on this article at the moment as one eye is on the TV  ESPN as Australia is about to Play soccer against the Netherlands for the World Cup. There is probably not much of a chance beating Netherlands as they are an experienced team where I believe our Australian team is quite young.

I  spent 4 days in Dallas catching up with my niece and her partner who were on their way to the World Cup. I am expecting to see them on TV all dressed up in support of their respective team. There will be a conflict of interest here as Donna is an Australian and Franny is from the Netherlands.

TSA-Precheck-logo-TM

Anyway this is how the subject of Airport Security becomes an issue on my way back from Dallas. For the first time in all the traveling that I have done I got the green light and was given a PreCheck entry through security. Fantastic, I did not have to take my shoes off, no taking out iPad and laptop or bags of cosmetics out of my bag, remove belts and coats. The bag went through the X-ray machine and I just walked through the X-ray machine for body check and away I went. So quick so easy.

It just so happens I was reading in the AARP bulletin and there was an article about the fact that if you make an application to the TSA this can happen to you every time you travel.

TSA is expanding its time-saving Pre Check program. This allows certain airline passengers to use separate security lanes where they don’t need to take  all the stuff off and out of their bags.

 

Now available through nine major airlines and at nearly 120 U.S. Airports, PreCheck is being offered to people who apply as well as to randomly selected passengers ( They will have been checked when making a reservation against a terrorist watch list).

If you are in the randomly selected group there will be a PreCheck symbol on your boarding pass, which means you are heading to the fast lane.

Before December 2013 PreCheck was available only to certain folks including those wh had already been vetted trough an international program called Global Entry and frequent fliers whom airlines were allowed to invite.

 Here is what you need to do to become PreChecked Airline passenger.

1. Apply online (tsa.gov). Pay an $85 fee for the vetting process

2. Make an appointment to get fingerprinted at one of the 300 enrollment centers around the States.

3. Wait eight to 11 days to receive an email with a known Traveler number that is good for  five years.

4. Include that number in your profile when you make a reservation. You will usually be flagged as a PreChecked passenger when you fly. You can then enjoy a hassle free security screening

 

I personally think that it is worth it especially if you travel often

Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?

This was sent to me and I thought it rather interesting. I for one never ever think that Junk food is cheaper. I say that for a few reasons. 1. Making a meal from scratch is fulfilling. 2. More nutritious 3. It is family orientated.4. Fast Food is usually none of these things. Buying cooked food in a bag or box usually is consumed in minutes without much thought about what we are eating or even making time for conversation. So its costs are higher in family time and nutrition, So In my mind it is never cheaper
On saying all that I do enjoy a Jack in A box or Mc Donald’s and other Fast Food, every now and then. Totally enjoy, probably because I don’t do it that often but when I do it tastes very yummy. For me it is a treat.
Yes I do Jump the fence.
