“But why would sick people smell differently in the first place? The key is that our bodies are constantly launching volatile substances into the air. They’re carried in our breath and literally ooze from every pore, and they can vary depending on age, diet, and whether an illness has thrown off some cog in our metabolic machinery. Microbes living in our guts and on our skin also contribute to our signature scent, by breaking down our metabolic by-products into smellier ones.
Basically, you’re a walking factory of smells. And if you start paying attention to them, you might notice when something’s off.”
This is an exert from the article on the National Geographic site
The article tells of a woman who can smell Parkinson’s which brought attention to the idea of sniffing for disease.
Anyway it is an article worth reading.
- A captive killer whale at MarineLand discovered it could regurgitate fish onto the surface of the water, attracting seagulls and then eat the birds. Four others then learned to copy the behavior.
2. Fiji Water once ran an ad that stated: “The label says Fiji because it’s not bottled in Cleveland.” The Cleveland water department took offense, so they challenged the statement, commissioned a test, and proved that Fiji water had more impurities in it.
3. Sound changes when it snows. It seems quieter right after a snowfall because a blanket of fresh powder is absorbing the sound waves- but once the snow melts and refreezes, it then creates a reflective surface that amplifies sound by allowing it to travel farther than normal.
4. The official border between Belgium and the Netherlands runs through living rooms, yards and cafés, so it’s possible – indeed, it happens more often than you’d think – to sit across a table having a cup of coffee with someone who is actually in a different country.
For a while, a Dutch law requiring dining establishments to close earlier than they did in Belgium. At closing time in the Netherlands, patrons would have to get up and move tables, over to the Belgian side.
- Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, not the eagle.
- Americans eat 46 million turkeys each Thanksgiving.
- Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s first meal in space after walking on the moon was foil packets with roasted turkey.

3. According to the National Geographic, “Bottled water is a drain on the environment: The U.S. public goes through about 50 billion water bottles a year, and most of those plastic containers are not recycled. Transporting the bottles and keeping them cold also burns fossil fuels, which give off greenhouse gases.” 1500 plastic bottles are consumed every second. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. And, it will take 1000 years for the plastic to degrade.
Here is a way to save money and help with the excess use of water bottles. If you buy this Hydrogen rich water machine which will give you unadulterated water with great alkaline benefits for your health and you won’t be drinking the acidic , toxic water from plastic bottles.

- According to the University of Manchester in the UK, loud music can make you feel happier. Be careful though they say, ‘too loud may risk permanent hearing damage’. I believe this survey to be true as I go into my ‘happy place’ when I put my ear buds in and listen to my music which I have to say is rather loud.
2. Good news for chocolate lovers. A British medical review of research on 114,000 people found that those who ate the most chocolate had a 37 percent decreased risk of developing heart disease and 29 percent decreased risk of suffering a stroke compared to those who ate less or abstained completely. 70% cacao is supposed to be the best for your health.
3. There is a way to outsmart a habit – US scientists say that up to 40% of your daily actions are actually habits formed over the years. It is basically your brains way of conserving effort or discomfort. However you can outsmart them by trading an old habit for a new one such as replacing a sugar fix with a walk. Replacing a cigarette for a piece of chewing gum or maybe go work in the garden. It helps the brain believe you can change
4. I read this on the packet of Dr Sheffields toothpaste – Dr Sheffield was the inventor of toothpaste in a tube since 1850.
FLUORIDE IS A DRUG THAT CAN BE ACUTELY TOXIC IF SWALLOWED IN LARGE AMOUNTS.
You may know that fluoride can be found in your drinking water; however, you may not know that it is also in many processed beverages and foods containing water. Including juice, beer and even your morning cup of coffee. Currently, over 200 million American’s are dosed daily with fluoride making it the most widely distributed drug in America.
A SIMPLE CHOICE:
Did you know that the mucous membranes in the mouth allow chemicals to pass directly into the blood stream where they can accumulate into toxic levels.
Most of us in the modern chemical based world are constantly exposed to all sorts of toxic substances in the air we breathe, in the water we drink (Plug for Kangen water) , and in the food we eat. We should strive to eliminate any source of contamination that we can, and try to stay as toxin free as possible. We may not be able to control everything, but we can control what we choose to place in our mouth and the mouths of our children.
You can only buy this at a CVS store in America. Sorry everyone else, but there are other brands that do not have fluoride in their toothpaste
5. The queen broke with protocol and allowed her troops to play the US national anthem for the first time ever during the changing of the guard ceremony as a tribute to the 9/11 victims and the Americans in England who were unable to return home.
Australia’s hottest day? Not 2010, but 1828 at a blistering 53.9 °C (129 F)
Back before man-made climate change was frying Australia, when CO2 was around 300 ppm, the continent savoured an ideal preindustrial climate, right? (This is the kind of climate we are spending $10b per annum to get back too?)
We are told today’s climate has more records and more extremes than times gone by, but the few records we have from the early 1800’s are eye-popping. Things were not just hotter, but so wildly hot it burst thermometers. The earliest temperature records we have shown that Australia was a land of shocking heatwaves and droughts, except for when it was bitterly cold or raging in flood.
In other words, nothing has changed, except possibly things might not be quite so hot now.
Silliggy (Lance Pidgeon) has been researching records from early explorers and from newspapers.
What he’s uncovered is fascinating! It’s as if history is being erased!
1.For all that we hear about recent record-breaking climate extremes, records that are equally extreme, and sometimes even more so, are ignored.
2.In January 1896 a savage blast “like a furnace” stretched across Australia from east to west and lasted for weeks.
3.The death toll reached 437 people in the eastern states.
4.Newspaper reports showed that in Bourke the heat approached 120°F (48.9°C) on three days.
5.The maximum at or above 102 degrees F (38.9°C) for 24 days straight!
What is most interesting about this was the skill, dedication and length of meteorological data taken in the 1800′s. When our climate is “the most important moral challenge” why is it there is so little interest in our longest and oldest data?
Who knew that one of the most meticulous and detailed temperature records in the world from the 1800′s comes from Adelaide, largely thanks to Sir Charles Todd.
Rainfall records even appear to go as far back as 1839. Lance Pidgeon went delving into the National Archives and was surprised at what he found.
The media are in overdrive, making out that “the extreme heat is the new normal” in Australia.
The Great Australian heatwaves of January 2013 didn’t push the mercury above 50C at any weather station in Australia, yet it’s been 50C (122F) and hotter in many inland towns across Australia over the past century.
It makes you wonder about putting the blame on those high records – On man-made global warming.
“I think we can all do our little bit by planting trees and owning conservative vehicles etc but my opinion – It is What it is. There will always be extremes in every thing even the weather. Our world is in Gods hands I am more concerned about the hate in this world – The Hate and judgement that comes out of ones mouth, does a lot more damage not the Temperature of the Air.” Me (L Voth)

This is a report from USA today which I thought quite interesting. Note Texas is not mentioned.
The Bureau of Economic Analysis, which published in July its report for 2014 prices for household consumption across the country. Your dollar will go a lot farther — 30% farther, in fact — in states like Mississippi and Arkansas THAN say Washington, D.C., and Hawaii.
This of course is 2 years ago, there may be a few changes but basically it gives you an idea of where it would be cheaper to live. If you want to move.
The states where your dollar (rounded to the nearest cent) is worth the most are:
1. Mississippi ($1.15)
2. Arkansas ($1.14)
3. Alabama ($1.14)
4. South Dakota ($1.14)
5. Kentucky ($1.13)
6. West Virginia ($1.12)
7. Ohio ($1.12)
8. Missouri ($1.12)
9. Oklahoma ($1.11)
10. Tennessee ($1.11)
11. Iowa ($1.11)
The cost of living in 35 states was below the national average.
The areas where your dollar is worth the least are the District of Columbia (85 cents), Hawaii (86 cents), New York (86 cents), New Jersey (87 cents), and California (89 cents).
