Researchers from South Australia’s Flinders University analized data of 68,000 people in 64 countries and found that taking an extra 3500 steps and spending an addition 45 minutes on the move each day resulted in weight loss of about 1.5kgs. This program needs to be done for 100 days to see the result. Not so bad eh?

It has been proven that it will help with better sleeping and calmer approach to life.

My husband sent me this with the crosses in strategic boxes. It worked
Our family used to grow these and yes these suggestions are correct. Another tip is that if the stem is still on it, the stem should be dry and brown, (like a stick).
There is nothing more maddening than getting home from the store and looking forward to a nice sweet tasting watermelon or cantaloupe and opening to find it unripe and quite bland. For the cantaloupe I like to smell them, usually if they are nice and ripe you will smell that sweet smell coming from within the fruit.
