I never knew this---Burn Remedy..

This was very interesting.

A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming. His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs in her hand. While another neighbor woman who had come out yelled: "bring me those eggs!" She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks. The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites on the young man's face. When the ambulance arrived and when the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. 
Everyone pointed --->> to the lady in charge. 
They congratulated her and said: "You have saved his face." By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby's skin.

Healing Miracle for burns:
Keep in mind this treatment of burns which is included in teaching beginner fireman this method. First aid consists of spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced and stops burning the layers of skin. Then, spread egg whites on the affected area. One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg white from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.
She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued for at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.

        This information could be helpful to everyone: Please pass it on.

Update to the Tree of Life post- I made one & sold one..

 Okay I just had to make one of those and without further a do---- here is mine::::

YES, I know, mine is way different. But I have always been different than everyone else. I used green wire for the tree so that when it was twisted with the pliers it would show wear. I wanted my tree to show character. Like old trees do and if this tree was to be big and have loads of leaves it should have some character. I also used different colored beads to give it vibrant color. 
I don't know but for a first try I think it came out pretty good. 
The copper wire was only a 16 gauge wire since Jo-Ann Fabrics didn't have the gauge she said to use. This was the biggest I could get. It isn't quite straight if you look at it by the side but since this is for me I really don't care. It just gives it more character. 
I used one of my prescription bottles to wrap the wire around to get the circle. It was a perfect size. 
If anyone does get around to making one of these please send me a pic I would love to see how yours turned out. 

***********This is the one I sold today (7/29) to my F A V O R I T E gal at the Post Office. I wore mine when I went to check my mail and she just loved it. I told her it was a prototype. I told her I had 3 different beads I could use and she chose these ones. I think it turned out pretty well. But I would have liked the beads to have been thicker. So the leaves would have looked thicker.
Over all, I like the way it turned out though.

Tree of Life instructions on YouTube

Things I bet you didn't know about the "Obama Health Care Bill"....

**Just a reminder for 2012**
Will You Ever Sell Your House?
Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?
That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home etc.
When did this happen? It's in the health care bill. Just thought you should know.
So, this is "change you can believe in"? The Obama Slogan......
Under the new health care bill - did you know that all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax? The bulk of these new taxes don't kick in until 2013 if you sell your $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Does this stuff make your November and 2012 vote more important?
Oh, you weren't aware this was in the Obama Care bill? Guess what, you aren't alone. There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either.
Why am I posting this? The same reason I hope you forward this to every single person in your address book -- because **you** can make a difference.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened”.

Ever needed some shipping boxes?

Did you know you can get them *FREE* from the post office? Yes you can. Just go to their website and order to your heart's content. You can get anything from boxes to flat envelopes. How great is that and they will ship them directly to your home or office for free also. Plus if need be they will even come pick them up for you when you have them filled and ready to mail. How cool is that!
If you even look around you can get shipping labels from their site also. Pretty neat if I say so myself. Then you just peel and stick, and you're off to the post office to send your package.
How simple was that. No having to scrounge for a box or labels or having to spend out any money for supplies.
I call that being frugal at it's best.

How many of you would buy this?

I came across this while surfing the net and was wondering how many people would actually buy this thing?

                    Perfect Meatloaf

This IS NOT the actual meatloaf pan they are advertising but a similar one. But I wanted to give you an idea of what it looked like. This one came from Harriet
I was wondering if we as women (or men as there are men that do a lot of cooking out there) could see justifying the money spent for this? The one on top is asking $19.95 plus shipping and handling plus another $7.95 for shipping and handling for a 2nd one that is supposedly *free*.
The pictured one from Harriet Carter is $12.98 plus shipping and handling for just one.
I myself can't see spending that amount for one of these. Oh I know they say that your food won't set in the juice/grease. Well it didn't seem to bother my mom or grandmother any.
Oh yeah, I forgot we are suppose to be cooking healthier. But how are we to be cooking healthier if that beef we are cooking is still being injected with growth hormones???

dah I don't think we can......

Butterflies in Flight

I made a couple of these yesterday until my hands started to hurt. Working with wire will do that to arthritic hands ya know.

I listed them over here on my website with my other jewelry. I posted them on my twitter and had lots of looks by people- which I love.
Have a great Sunday everyone.


Once upon a time there lived an old woman, and old man and a little boy and one day the old woman decided to bake a Johnny-cake. She instructed the boy to watch the cake, baking in the oven while she, and the old man went out to work in the garden.

But, the little boy was easily distracted and did not watch the cake as he had been told. Suddenly he heard a noise and looking back at the oven he saw the door pop open, the Johnny-cake jump out and the cake rolling, end over end towards the open door of the house.

The boy tried to shut the door, but he was too slow, and the cake rolled out, down the steps and out into the road with the little boy giving chase. The boy cried out to his parents who put down their gardening tools and also run after the Johnny-cake. But the cake was too quick and was soon out of sight, and the old woman, old man and the little boy had to sit down by the side of the road and rest. 

On went the Johnny-cake and by and by he came across two men digging a well, who looked up as the cake rolled by, and they called out, ‘where are you going, Johnny-cake?’

The cake said, "I have outrun an old man and an old woman and a little boy, and I can outrun you too-o-o!"

"Ye can, can ye?" We'll see about that!" the well-diggers said, and throwing down their tools they ran after the cake. But, the men couldn’t catch it either and soon they had to sit down and rest by the side of the road.

Johnny-cake went on and presently passed two more men, this time digging a ditch.
"Where ye going, Johnny-Cake? " they asked.

"I've outrun an old man and an old woman and a little boy and two well-diggers, and I can outrun you too-o-o!", the cake replied.

"Ye can, can ye? We'll see about that!" they said, and they threw down their spades and ran after him too.

But Johnny-Cake soon outran them also, and seeing they could never catch him, they gave up the chase and sat down to rest.

On went the cake and he came to a bear who said, "Where are ye going, Johnny-Cake? "

He answered, "I've outrun an old man and an old woman and a little boy and two well-diggers and two ditch-diggers, and I can outrun you too-o-o!"

"Ye can, can ye?" growled the bear. "We'll see about that!" and trotted as fast as his legs could carry him after Johnny-Cake, who never stopped to look behind him. Before long the bear was left so far behind that he saw he might as well give up the hunt as well, so he stretched himself out by the roadside to rest.

Next the cake came to a wolf resting by the side of the road, and he called out to the Johnny-cake, "Where ye going, Johnny-Cake? "

The cake said, "I've outrun an old man and an old woman and a little boy and two well-diggers and two ditch-diggers and a bear, and I can outrun you too-o-o!"

"Ye can, can ye?" snarled the wolf. "We'll see about that!" And he set into a gallop after Johnny-Cake, who went on and on so fast that the wolf saw there was no hope of overtaking him, and he soon lay down to rest.

On and on went Johnny-cake and by and by he came across a fox who was leisurely surveying the road. The fox called out, without getting up, "Where ye going, Johnny-Cake? "

"I've outrun an old man and an old woman and a little boy and two well-diggers and two ditch-diggers, a bear, and a wolf, and I can outrun you too-o-o!" the cake told the fox.

"I can't quite hear you, Johnny-Cake. Won't you come a little closer?" the fox said, turning his head a little to one side.

Johnny-Cake stopped his race for the first time, and went a little closer, and called out in a very loud voice, "I've outrun an old man and an old woman and a little boy and two well-diggers and two ditch-diggers and a bear and a wolf, and I can outrun you too-o-o!"

"Sorry, can't quite hear you. Won't you come a little closer?" the fox said again.


"You can, can you?" yelped the fox, and he suddenly snapped up Johnny-Cake in his sharp teeth in the twinkling of an eye.

My newest creations

I have been playing around with making things with wire and these are my latest items. 

This one took some time since I had to work at keeping it straight.

I had fun making these wire birds nests. This green one was easier to work with as the wire was a smaller gauge and much easier to twist and turn. 

These can be put on a chain or used as a charm on a bracelet. I have this one and the others listed on my ecrater site.

Sent to me by my mom-in-law

As Christian's we should know what ASAP means. But in case you've forgotten, it means:

                               Always Say A Prayer.

"God, our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses. Please watch over and heal my family in Jesus name, Amen."

Smell remover and spot eliminator....

While just surfing the net I came across this stuff that people were bragging about. So I just had to check it out. Here there were so many people telling how they had used the stuff and it had cleaned up spots and odors that were not only new but months or years old. It had done such a good job they were putting in second orders.
It even claims to get rid of Skunk odors. That has to be some powerful good stuff to do that. The name of this products is BioFOG SCOE 10X Super Concentrated Odor Eliminator.
I tell you what, if I ever have some odor problems I will think about ordering me some of this stuff.

Miss U

I just loved this. My cousin sent this to me the other day with the following--->>>

If you happened to show up on my door step crying,
I would care!
If you called me and asked me to pick you up because something happened,
I would come!
If you had one day left to live your life, 
I would want to be part of that last day!
If you needed a shoulder to cry on,
I would give you mine!

I will always be there for you Garold, luv u!

Waiting, waiting and some more waiting

I had went to some garage sales last weekend and happened upon a Bulldog Security System for my vehicle for $10. So I called Cartronics in my hometown and they said they could install it for me. They said it would take a few hours. I said no problem. So I dropped my van off at 1pm. and walked over to KFC to have lunch with my son. So far so good. Then we walked on down to Walgreens and looked around for a bit. Got some good deals on some thing while I was there. We had used up 2hrs. of time by now. So we walked back to check on the progress of my van. Not doing so good. We sat there for about half an hour only for the guy to come out and tell my my system didn't work. He had this blank look on his face. So I asked him what he thought I should do at this point. He looked up at the ceiling and said "I don't know". I did remind him that I did buy the system at a garage sale and it might have been setting for some time so the battery in the keypad might be dead. So he says " I can try to change it". About 10min. later he comes back and says "that works now". Okay--I'm thinking maybe we don't have much farther to go. Boy was I wrong.

That's my van way back there. You can just see the front end. This is my view for the next 2hrs.

1/2 a Brisk Tea later and listening to the 5 people working on this side of the store laughing and not doing their work. 
Not a happy camper, my son waiting with me. You can see he's smoking his eCig there in this pic..

Great sign the lights on the van are blinking-- can you see it back there. They are in the final stages of making sure everything works. SO after a total of 4hrs. they are finally getting things to working. Man that took F O R E V E R...............
I am happy, now I can be lazy like the rest of the world and not have to unlock my doors with a key and I can start my van and let it run to warm up in the winter before I get in it.
                              How cool am I?????

eCigs update-- new site

As I have posted before. Mr. L. has went from smoking that dreaded ole smelly cigarette to an electronic cigarette. Which I like much better. Our kitchen table looks like a smoke factory. He has MANY bottles of ejuice, atomizers and cartridges in a plastic square bowl. Then his Ceramic 510 C-E2 R4 Blank Cartomizers  that he just LOVES. He just got those the other day. He and my son both smoke the eCigs. We have found a new site that they prefer. It's called Sterling Vapor E-Cigs and a super nice lady named Carol has the site. She is an independent and does all the work herself. She checks everything out so she knows how it works. She smokes the eCigs herself so when you talk with her she knows what you are talking about. Mr. L. has called and talked with her many times and says she is so nice to talk with. If he has any questions about a product she is right there to help and to offer suggestions about a product that would be better suited for your needs. He has went by her suggestions and she hasn't steered him wrong yet.  
Here is what his stash looks like. My son's looks just about the same. 
 The needle is for injecting the ejuice into the  Ceramic 510 C-E2 R4 Blank Cartomizers  .
 That is what Mr. L. is showing here on top of his big 900mah eGo battery. This is a manual battery-which means you push the button there when you want to (puff) vape and let go before you are done to do your *vaping*. 
He and our son just got a 1000mAh eGo Battery today in the mail and they are on the charger. They got them in the Titanium color. You need to charge them a full 8 hrs. before you use them the first time. 
Well just wanted to give you an update on how it was going and let you know of the new place we had found and the great service she provides. 
      Happy Vaping!!!

Dishcloth & Scrubbers I've made

I was unable to post pics over at so I will post them here so everyone can see them.

 I love these for the dishes and my pans as I have T-fal. And I really DON'T want them scratched, Mr. L. If you know what I mean. He had to buy me a set already once because they came up all scratched...... And I had- had the set since my kids were babies. That meant the set was 20 something yrs old. Not bad for a set of pans. So I guess I was do for a new set. But I really don't care for the new stuff. I guess I should write and tell them...
Anyways I do love the scrubbers for the pans- they don't scratch and really clean them well. 
Plus you can just pop them in the washer and I let the scrubber dry on it's own.

Kitchen Towel Holders

I was unable to post pics over at so I will post them here so everyone can see them.

This way the towels can be changed and you don't have to worry about having to throw away the whole thing when the towels get too thin.  You just hang these over anything you want and you tie it like you do your shoe and you're good to go. The piece you tie will NOT come off so no worry there when you wash it. I made these out of shower hooks. You can't tell it can you! So they can be washed but I let them dry on their own.
How cool is that......

*Looney Tunes Game-There Goes The Neighborhood* for kids

My granddaughter 

just posted about this site on her facebook page and said this was a really fun game but some what hard. Well hard to her means having to concentrate. So thought I would post it on here and let you decide for yourselves. Since it is a safe site I will post it. 
I don't know about you but I am just a BIG kid myself so I am going to try it out too. I have the window open and an heading over there after this post is done. 
Have fun playing....

Growing Alfalfa Sprouts

I was searching for alfalfa seeds when I came across this--->>>

My dog has been having bladder infections and I am really tired of paying around $300 every 3-4 months for the vet visits to get Augmentin for her. So I has been looking for alternative ways to help her keep from getting these infections. I have went to wiping her everyday with baby wipes. Which is NOT cheap- even though I am cutting them into smaller sizes. Because when she goes she squats so close to the ground she is always touching the ground and that could be one reason she is having problems. She maybe getting bacteria from the male dogs where they had gone before.
I am trying to get her to eat can food so she is eating moist food so she gets more liquid in her diet. But she is reluctant to do this. She prefers the dry food. She is a really picky eater. So I am putting 1/4 a hot dog into a bit of Alpo prime cuts and so far she is at least trying it.
While reading about the Alfalfa seeds it says they are also good for lowering high cholesterol.  And other things. You might want to give it a read. I am all for natural things instead of all the meds. the Dr.s want to give you. I take 13 pills a day and I am so tired of that. I do take one for high cholesterol so I am seriously looking into this option. 
Well enough of my running my yap on this subject.

Everyone have a super Sunday.
God Bless,.,.,.,.,..,.,

For my Beautiful Friends


When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living'.
I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

 When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

 When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

 When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

 When I say 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

 When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

 Today is Beautiful Christian Person's Day.

Pretty is as pretty does, but beautiful is just plain beautiful..
Be Blessed, Be a Blessing.

The Human Mind

Morse  Code is this way too.  The great code operators didn't separate the letters but actually heard the words or, in some cases entire sentences.

 This will put your dyslexia into a catatonic fit!
