Did You Know – 11/04/2019


  1. 2015 study shows that Animal Fat is actually quite healthy for you and an important part of your diet. Pork fat being the 8th in line. It contains Vitamin D, Omega 3, ‭monounsaturated fats (same as Avo’s and Olive oil) saturated fats and choline. For the highest quality go Organic pasture free range hogs. This is good news to me as I love pork fat especially crackle

2. Nerdwax Was developed and presented to Shark Tank. The wax is rubbed on your nose and prevents your glasses from slipping down the nose. Brilliant I thought as I push my glasses up my nose about 20 times a day

3. Champagne lost its bubble? – Go get a raisen from the cupboard and drop it into  the bottle. The carbon dioxide left in the bottle will cling to the groves of the raisin and release back into the liquid and make it bubbly again. I did not know that. Now I do

4. Fruit flies drink alcohol When they are sexually frustrated 🤨. I don’t know where that information came from exactly  but I do know Flies do find my red wine very attractive . Why not sure.


5. When your eyes move so do your eardrums. I believe its a mystery but it seems that sight and sound are very closely related. Just a thought,  maybe by moving your eyes quickly you can bring on Vertigo as well as watching a movie in the dark on a computer may also give you symptoms of vertigo . I have actually experienced that.

a.Your eyes are capable of processing 36,000 pieces of information per hour:

b.Your eyes will process 24 million images in your lifetime:

c. Your eyes can recognize candle light from up to 14 miles away:

Gift Idea Wednesday – 09/23/2015 – A Must Have

I have two Christmas gift ideas this time. 


  1. Now this idea is brilliant and is a must have!

For those of you that have amazing eye sight this is not for you. On the other hand I bet you know someone who would just love you for ever with this gift. It will always be on hand, (as long as you don’t leave your iPhone at home like I do half the time). it will not take up space in your purse or handbag and you can get any strength you like.
Now these are glasses that you are not going to have perched on your nose all day, they are what i call convenient glasses.
I am a label reader so when I go to the store I usually have to fossick in my handbag and get my glasses so I can read a label. Well most of the time I will always know where my phone is and know my glasses are attached.
Anyway take a look at the video as I am sure it will convince you that these are a must have. I love mine.

1. Use cupcake cases to cover drinks glasses in the summer and prevent flies from dropping in. I need to do this with my wine glass because you can be sure, if you are outside and you need to go do something when you come back there is a fly in your red wine. They love it.


2. Use bulldog clips to keep stacked bottles in place in the fridge


3. Another way to clean a chopping board is to cover liberally with
Kosher salt and leave overnight. Scrape off with a cloth in the
morning to find the salt has absorbed all moisture to leave your board clean and dry.


4. This has to be the simplest way to open those annoying blister packs!



5. Use a cut potato to easily remove a broken light bulb

6. Use chalk to remove grease stains from clothes. Simply rub white
chalk on the affected area and wash as normal – the chalk will absorb
the grease and be washed away in the cycle.

I have to say this is incredible stuff. I actually have tried some of these things and they do work. I suggest when you go to the store next get a big bottle of this stuff and keep it in the kitchen for some of these purposes. Already got some – Use it.

2. Freshen Dishcloths – Place cloths in a container and cover with water and a half a cup on vinegar. Soak for a few hours, then thoroughly rinse before using.

7. Rescue Boiled Eggs – If an egg starts to crack while its being boiled, adding a little vinegar to the water will stop the egg white seeping out.

8. Revive Chopping Boards – Wipe over wooden chopping boards which white vinegar to clean and disinfect them between uses.

9. Oust Deodorant Marks – Spray deodorant stains on shirts with vinegar before putting them into the washing machine.

Perfect Vision

Most of us take our vision for granted especially in our teens, most of us probably never gave our eyesight a thought until we got dust or some particle stuck in it.

You know we spend a lot of time looking after our bodies, worrying about our weight, exercising, eating well, getting plenty of sleep etc. What we often neglect is the health of our eyes. Believe it or not we need to exercise our eyes as well as eat food that is nutritional to our eyes and of course get that much-needed sleep to rest them.
I have spoken often of my Yoga teacher Elsa who was 90 years of age. Elsa told us that at 45 years of age, when she started to do Yoga, she wore glasses. Now, well then, (as I have not seen her for about 10 years, she may have passed away by now) at the age of 90 she had excellent eyesight and was still driving her car. This meant that she would have had to pass a rather ridged eye test before they would allow anyone of that age to get behind the wheel.

Elsa did eye exercises almost every day and of course taught us to do them at our Yoga classes. I have to admit, I do not do these exercises as often as I should and after reading an article about our eyes and how we can improve them it has made me realize how I need to get back into the routine of doing these exercises everyday.

It does not take more than a few minutes of your time and you can do them anywhere. You can do them in the bus or train, on the way to work. (You may get a few strange looks but there is always a few strange people on the public transport, they will just think you are one of them), you can do it just before you get out of bed in the morning or when you are going to bed in the evening. Anytime!!

I recommend that you consider doing the following exercises. They are simple but very effective and could not only preserve your eyesight but save you a lot of money.

Here They are: Three eye workouts

1. Imagine you have a clock directly in front of you. Move your eyes from 12 to 6 (up and down). From 3 to 9 (side to side). From 11 to 5 and 7 to 2 (Diagonally). The next exercise is to follow the numbers from 1 to 12 and back (Circle, clockwise and anticlockwise)

2. Hold your thumb 15cm from your nose. Use your eyes to focus on the tip of your thumb. Take one or two deep breaths and exhale slowly. Then focus on any object approximately three meters away. Take another one or two deep breaths and slowly exhale. Repeat the above steps 10 to 20 times.

3 Rub your palms together, cup the warmed palms over (not on) closed eyes and allow no light to enter. Experience total darkness for 20 to 30 seconds and blink several times also. Take long slow deep breaths. Be sure to relax the eyes, face, brow and jaw. Do not squeeze the eyelid shut.

If you take the time to do these eye exercises, the expense of Optometrists fee’s and glasses may be not an issue for you. You will not have the inconvenience of not being able to read the small print at the restaurant  which can be a pain in the A…. and you will be able to thread a needle. All those things we take for granted when our eyesight is in top form.

RememberIf you don’t do different nothing will change
