The Benefits of a Himalayan Salt Lamp

I have had a Himalayan salt lamp for years and also got one each for my GrandKids. I bought it for the reasons below and if nothing else the ambiance for a bedroom is quite peaceful. I found it interesting the benefits of these lamps so thought would pass it on.

You do need to be aware that there are many fake salt lamps on the market. I have seen them at dollar stores and farmers markets that are quite cheap so I suspect they are not the real deal.

1. I find this fascinating. Who knew there was so much uninhabited land in the UK.

2. 1M Hauly | $220

It doesn’t matter what the money is for—under-the-table hush-money, black market arms deals, or Bugatti purchase—the 1M Hauly is designed to carry exactly $1,000,000 worth of $100 U.S. bank notes while remaining inconspicuous at checkpoints and border crossings. Of course, the near-weightless 20L bag can also be used for normal things like clothes and tools if you haven’t yet run into a nefarious international transaction that needs completed. Made from a stronger-than-kevlar and waterproof Dyneema composite fabric, the 1M Hauly naturally reaches a discreet matte-and-crumpled finish after a few uses. Reliable YKK Uretek zippers form the bag’s closure and provide high humidity protection for the cash, while sturdy haul loops at each end fit a large gloved hand but are sized to work with straps, carabiners, or other attachments.

4. 1932 the army in australia went to war against Emu’s as they were destroying the farmland. Apparently the army lost.  Australia, employed soldiers armed with Lewis guns—leading the media to adopt the name “Emu War” when referring to the incident. While a number of the birds were killed, the emu population persisted and continued to cause crop destruction.

Thomas Edison nicknamed his first daughter “Dot” and his eldest son was called “Dash.”
In adulthood “Dash”, aka Thomas Edison, Jr., sold his name to endorse patent medicines, becoming such an embarrassment to his father that the elder Edison asked his son to stop using the family name, and for a time the younger Edison lived as Thomas Willard.
