stupid smart phones

I was going along with cell phone evolution for a while. I wised-up about the time they started with the “smart phone” moniker. Privacy and health concerns are enough to put me off that feed. I share a couple of recent articles below touching on some of those concerns with current knowledge. First off, I will resist the constant monitoring by Big Brother as well as I conveniently can. I phrase it that way as I recognize The Deep State is a pervasive, cancerous growth in our world. Escape is possible, but requires focus, dedication and abandonment of too many modern conveniences. My attempt at balance dictates resistance, avoidance and fershur I will not facilitate Big Brother’s snooping. That […]

fasting

We shrunk my plates, shrunk my portions, mostly eliminated lovely bread and beer from my diet, and so on. Yet old man metabolism methodically added, one gram at a time, more body fat than I could comfortably fit into my wardrobe. Even if I wasn’t too frugal to replace closet and drawers full of over-snug shirts and pants, I very definitely did not want to see a naked Santa Claus facing me in the mirror. If I didn’t draw the line at making me fit my clothes rather than my clothes fit a bigger, softer me, where would I draw that line? … XL, XXL?? Jaba-The-Hut??? This year I have not eaten lunch. There have been a few exceptions, but […]

Is Long Hair Making Us More Intuitive?

 Back in the old days and the ancient times, many cultures embraced people with long hair, because they believed that long hair was a sign of strength and spiritual maturity. The Native Americans and the Chinese are just a few examples of the many cultures that value long hair, which was why the men and women of these cultures back then rarely cut their hair. Even though back then many cultures believed that having long hair was beneficial to the body, is there evidence today that supports the belief that long hair can make a person more intuitive? How long hair can make you more intuitive If you study Nature deeply enough, you should know that Nature would never create […]

sneezing etiquette

Though nearly a decade old, this video on minimizing the spread of diseases should be shared again. The easiest reflex is to put your hand up to keep from blasting everyone nearby. But it is wrong. Mythbusters took on the sleeve VS hand and hankie in the lower video. While the upper one uses logic and expects you to trust them, as is their mission, Mythbusters finds a way to test the theory.

losing it

Over the last couple of years, my mealtime portions shrunk significantly, seconds stopped and most of my lovely, wonderful carbohydrates have been cut back dramatically to a shadow of their former, joyous selves. But relentlessly, month-by-month, my aging metabolism has reduced my inspiration to burn the necessary calories that would keep my waistline contained in my pants utilizing only the size I want to wear. Couple that with a digital scale that is pretty-darn merciless in explaining loud and clear what the mirror has been trying to tell me. It was the scale that finally, well, tipped the scale. The dang thing tried to warn me off, but I wouldn’t listen. Finally it screamed, 199.5. Oh no! THAT WILL […]

pervasive flu, cough

It is going around… the world. “Everybody” is getting it. A really bad one. Nasty. Oh, but don’t give a second thought to the plumes spewing out of the spray planes criss-crossing our skies. Big Sky Country almost implies BLUE, and clean. But we get their white streaks expanding into pervasive pasty-white more often than we get blue. What are they spraying? And why? Global Skywatch .com does a much better job than I can. If you are interested, go there. If they were spraying, people would document it and laboratory tests would prove it. People are documenting it. Lab tests are proving it. Nature is proving it. Our health is proving it. Ignoring it, or paying attention … […]

un cramped

I have had muscle cramps a lot lately. The standard natural health answer is to add magnesium, perhaps some calcium too. “Bananas” is a popular prescription. But I have been taking magnesium and calcium supplements with my late breakfast and a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement with my dinner. Why isn’t this working? But fail it does. Friday I was fed up with that failure and took a moment to look at the fine print. Aww Shucks! Operating under the assumption that they always tend to overdose on their percentages was not particularly wise. My Kirkland Mature Multi that I choose because they are uniquely modest in their problematic-for-me vitamin B loading, only provides 13% of my recommended magnesium. My Dr. […]

chronic bronchial congestion cured

I cannot think of any morning in recent memory where I did not wake up with lung and bronchial congestion. I find that taking two Lung, Bronchial & Sinus Health tablets a day keeps my congestion under control. I forget or run out of those supplements once in a while and notice degradation. It is chronic in me. I accept that … mostly. I get up and am upright for an hour or two and it clears out until the next morning. Of late, it occasionally makes me get up around 3:00 AM for a couple hours to clear my chest enabling me to go back to sleep for a while longer. Yesterday I was concerned that it was […]
