Meditating Monroe


Tornadoes the last day of December!!


Woke up early to tornado warnings, hail storm warnings, heavy rain, and some possible fatalities in the viewing area. I got everyone fed including the barn animals but the dogs were not interested in going out so the puppy pads were used indoors, I counted the poops and someone accidentally went outdoors, can't imagine that!! Lots of power outages in the area. The clothes that I left on the line last night have to be washed again because my clothesline is down on the ground too. I am grateful that the really severe weather missed my little acre.

Had family game night and Pizza last night, Jill won, I guess I was not concentrating or I would have won, I almost never lose. My competitive spirit (stubbornness) will die with me but that is probably the reason I am well. My parents did not tolerate by stubbornness very well and I was often disciplined for it.

I have the local radio on today because of the weather so will hear the radio show call in trading show, could find a wood stove. The radio will keep me informed about any weather changes. The temperature is declining as it was in the 60s and will be freezing this evening. Must be global warning.

I am sorry that I don't have one of the recalled automobiles, wish they would recall my 1990's Venture, but do not think that will happen.

Happy New Year. think I will find a bell to ring at midnight and distrub all my animals!!

Quincy and Monroe came yesterday afternoon and they were happy to be here. I watched a couple of webinars yesterday and last night watched sports on the TV. I put some last touches on the new book and will finish it out by tomorrow morning. This morning has been really busy, cleaning, washing, doing dishes and bathing dogs. Franklin is a Pom, he loves to get a bath and he needs one often. I am listening to a webinar now on weight management and I don't agree with him so will turn it off and find something else to listen to.

The man with the land across the road is driving his truck around his fence to check on everything and I remember when my dad and I would walk around his fences and check them out, too bad that guy across the road is not getting his exercise. It is unseasonably warm today but windy and not much sun, I did open up the front door so the dogs can look out the screen and get a new view of things and I like the fresh air, also. My family is supposed to come this evening for games and pizza, I am not certain that pizza is a health food but I can be bad every now and then. I am looking forward to it.

Winter Blahs


The very cloudy, rainy weather does not make me feel any better, I need some sunshine for my emotional health. I am listening to David Wolfe this morning just reviewing his wellness information. Guess I need some Jing energy and I need some Chi and Shin too. If it gets a little warmer today I will walk barefoot outdoors and get some Jing.

This evening Monroe and Quincy will come to stay @ Mema's sleepover for a few days. Barky is still with me and will meet them for the first time.

I am wrapping up another book "More Ramblings from Mema" and will have it ready to publish by January 1, 2011. If I continue it much longer, it will be too long and no one will read it. So different from the past when we had time to read and had the dedication to finish things we started.

I have to order some more Zeolite today so I can stay healthy. If the rain does not fall, I will work in cleaning up the yard, it is in real need of a clean-up. I got a seed catalog last week so I am inspired to plan my plantings for the spring. I want some more fruit and nut trees, more berry vines and grape vines. Plant shopping should cheer me up!

A little nuthatch is sorting the bird feed this morning, he is so cute and fun to watch.

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Today I am thankful that we do not have the bad weather that is North and East of us, travel has been so bad during this holiday season.
I am working on my Kwik memory program this morning and am reviewing some of the lessons so I will have a strong base for the system.
I spent some time putting together information for one of Lonna's co-workers, on treating anemia. I put together the information quickly so will need to follow up with a more in depth plan. Today I must put the information in a workable 'user friendly' plan. Most physicians place them on the wrong iron supplement and do not tell them to take sub lingual B12 and vitamin C with the iron, and most do not know what foods contain digestible forms of iron.

My little hen, Julie, 'layed' her egg late yesterday so I picked it up this morning, placed it in my pocket then proceeded to carry water to the livestock. I heard a crack and remembered that I had an egg in my pocket; already have that coat in the washing machine.

Very frosty this morning but the sun is shinning, that is great! I hope it thaws my hose out quickly. Late last night Zoey, Xena and Dixie went home, so just me and mine, plus Barky here now. I never have to wonder where Barky is, always near by. As I look out the window, lots of birds so I need to put out more food for them. My how great to see those birds every day, I am so grateful for my vision. My computer desk is under the window so I can always see what is going on in my front yard. Will be happy when my nut trees are large enough to bare fruit because I will then have squirrels too. I love to watch those little creatures. I doubt that I would ever have rabbits because rabbits and dogs do not mix very well, there was an occasional one in the back yard when I came here but they soon disappeared.

When I get paid for these sleepover dogs, I will try to gather enough money to get a wood stove, because with the weather here we may have a period of bad weather and no electricity.

Getting ready for a New Year!

Santa brought me a Ninja and a scale, I also got night cream and some warm underwear. When anyone in my family goes to a store they immediately go to the clearance sale shelves, last summer when Lonna went to the clearance sale, she found some Danskin long sleeved Tee shirts and when I put one on this winter, I found it to be so comfortable and warm. I wanted 'bottoms', Jill got me some bottoms so I will be warm this winter, I can weigh myself and make a smoothie; in other words I can make it through the winter. It is very cold today and I still have all the sleepover dogs, should send a couple home today. Have to carry water from the house to the livestock, ice in the containers probably will not melt today.

Lonna brought me dinner from Penny's house last night so I have enough left for today, therefore, I will not go hungry today. All the dogs are happy, I passed out bones this morning and they are busy pulling off all the meat and getting into the bone marrow, it takes a while because the bones are frozen.

The washer is going, the dishwasher is going and all the animals have been fed. My day has just started but I am already ready for a rest. Will have new lessons on my Jim Kwik memory classes today and there will be a few football games to watch. My Cowboys lost last night by one point, I am disappointed!

I will be happy to see 2011, have not accomplished what I wanted in 2010 so might as well start over. Actually I start over every day!!

Merry Christmas

Little bits of ice crystals in the air and on the porch and it is ccoolldd! Just have to be grateful that I do not live farther North. I have to carry a hot cup of coffee today so my hands will be warm.
Dixie just passed up the water bowl to go to the toilet to drink and Domino followed, waiting by the water bowl until Dixie finished. I just don't understand their thinking.
I think Lonna will be over to have some breakfast with me so I will see a two legged creature today. The dogs got a Christmas treat this morning. I am saddened because another little hen was killed last night, my cuz thinks it is a weasel. Julie is all by herself this morning, as much as I like the chickens and love the eggs, I don't think I can provide a safe place for them.
I hope Dixie and Xena will be picked up today. Dixie is a problem because she is so big and tries to occupy the same space as me, she does not understand the laws of nature that 2 objects cannot occupy the same space.

more Mema's Sleepover dogs

One more chicken dead in the barn this morning, that leaves me only 2 hens, guess there is an animal out there who loves chicken heads. Now I only have Julie and Jackie left. I am surprised that a wild animal will go into the barn and steal a chicken with a horse, a mini mule and 4 goats in the barn. JR the mini mule has been a the far end of the barnlot the past few mornings so he may be frightened of something.

I got a Christmas gift from Lonna, 2 gallons of raw milk, such a treat, I do not drink the chalk that is called milk in the grocery store. I have raw cream in my coffee this morning.

I am listening to Darren Weissman on a webinar; the Infinite Love and Gratitude guy.

I have Barky, Dixie and Xena now so I did not sleep well; no room, everyone wants to touch me and Dixie is so big.

Thursday, December 23, 2010

I made a big mistake yesterday, had to run to the Dollar Store to get an emergency supply of canned cat food; the store is about 4 or 5 miles from the house, I made a mistake of not putting away the cookies and candy I had on a plate on the table. When I got home Jackson had consumed the whole plate, don't think the vets are correct about chocolate being poison, Jackson is more active than ever. I brought out the snacks when Molly was here and just had not put them away, bad mistake. Everyone is chewing on bones this morning and enjoying them a lot. Chloe is being certain that Jackson does not steal all the other bones and hide them. She is a great little black pug policewoman.

Cold but sunny today, I am grateful that all my animals are happy and healthy. Janet, the horse and JR the mini mule wanted a little extra love this morning so better take out carrots for them later.

One of my neighbors brought empty egg cartons yesterday, I guess it is to remind those little hens of mine to keep giving me 3 eggs a day so they can have some. I am listening to a webinar this morning but it is not very informative so I may switch to another one. I need to spend some time today on my memory classes also. Barky comes today for sleepovers and she loves to dance in my lap and leave little paw prints on my thighs. I call her my prancing pug.

I have a little toy doxie that is begging to be in my lap, so see you tomorrow.

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

I am very grateful for the beautiful sunshine; no fog, just a beautiful orange ball in the sky. I am also grateful that my neighbor, Joy, brought me a beautiful fruit basket yesterday and it smells so nice and will taste great too.
Sophie decided that she would take back her spot in the kitchen; taking it away from Nellie who is a bit sullen this morning because she had to share. I can almost see the wheels turning in the heads of both of those cats. All are enjoying the sunshine as it comes through the windows. I will gather some pine cones today so I can make some bird feeding stations from them with peanut butter and bird seed. I have to go to the store again today because the cats have eaten all their canned food, they can't seem to get enough canned food.
I hate going to the store this time of year because of the crowds but it is much better now than when I had to drag four little children with me everywhere I went. I also hate to buy gas, it costs more to get to the store than I will pay for the cat food.

A morning giving gifts to children in food line.


Spent the morning giving to the poor, Jill volunteers every Wednesday at her church food bank so this morning I went and gave small gifts to all the children and pinned angels on the people standing in line. I then went into the G.R.U.B. and helped with bagging stuff for giving away. Met a lot of nice people and will try to do that again. The vendor that Mike Brazzeal works for gave stuff for the people too. Mike was so nice to box up some really needed products for the men and women who needed women's hygiene products, razors, wipes, etc. It was a great contribution. I got to practice some of my memory skills this morning remembering the names of all who worked at GRUB. I realize that I have to practice more.

Yesterday my grand daughter came to my house and played Phase 10 with me, I won both games. Molly also discussed her first semester at college and it was a very enjoyable time for me.

Monday, December 20, 2010


I am grateful for the bit of warm weather, went out barefoot this morning and it felt good. I am really saddened that Big Jim my rooster died last night, he was such a wonderful little rooster. He was a mixed breed but had the little feathered feet and legs, beautiful colored, I missed his crow this morning and when I went into the barn, his body was there and he had been beheaded by something. The three little hens are very quiet today, I will really miss him crowing every morning. I love the crow of a rooster. I have such a hard time keeping my chickens safe and at the same time allowing them their freedom.

Today I hope Molly will come see me and play card games, they did not get here yesterday so my day was dedicated to watching the Dallas Cowboys and the KC Chiefs win, I loved seeing those two teams win.

The dogs and cats are napping and I wish I could join them.

Sunday, December 19, 2010


Went to an art show yesterday: Patty O'Hair Vicknair is a really wonderful artist. I have known Patty since 1983 and did not know until recently how talented she is, I did really enjoy her art show. My animals missed me for the few hours I was gone.

My memory class this week is a very difficult one and I know now that I am going to have to spend a great deal of time learning this lesson on memorizing large lists of numbers. I do know that remembering numbers is probably the most necessary thing in the project. Just remembering phone numbers, lock numbers, etc. is so important to lessen the anxiety in life.

I have neglected some of my eye exercises the past couple of days so I am wearing my pin point glasses this morning as I work in the house and on the computer. It is so hard to remember to do each routine every day but I know I must. Yesterday I got the old laptop set up in the bedroom to do the Dr. Shealy DVDs at night in order for me to do the 'rings" for healing. Since the computer has so many problems, it has become a DVD player. It would help if the player on the tv worked but I can't figure out what is wrong with it. I think I need an electronic expert angel, do you know where I could find one? I would love it if Dan lived next door but can't get him to move from Arizona. Where is that knowledge to clone?

Today Molly and family are planning to come over and play card games, hope it happens.

I am grateful that today is a bright new day, did not have a lot of good times yesterday. Went to Walmart to purchase five gifts for my kids and grand daughter for under $50, it took a lot of time besides staying in my budget; Walmart moved everything since I was there and I could not find anything, had to go all over the store. It is rather depressing to think about how much money a business can save by not remodeling every few months. It also causes so much anxiety for the customer.


I spent that time in town and my animals all thought I had abandoned them. I am grateful too that I had a conversation with two old friends. Christmas used to be a great holiday for me but for the past few years it has not been fun, times to change and I must bend with change.

Friday, December 17, 2010


I am having trouble with time organization this morning so I am late getting my blog published. One thing leads to another until everything has gotten unorganized. Phone calls for my kids pet sitting business, people calling with a small problem to discuss, two dogs needing extra loving today for some reason, wash to do, etc., etc. I am listening to a webinar as I come in and out of the living room. I am trying to figure a budget that gives me some money for small gifts for immediate family members, does not look promising at this time. In order to figure a budget for January, I called a guy to get an estimate of what it would cost to install a wood stove in case I find the funds to purchase the stove.

I try to plan ahead in order to make my life easier. I did not plan on all the animals eating more now that it is winter, guess I forgot about the additional feed needed for winter. All are fat and happy, I think I found the hole in the fence that was allowing my hens to free range into my neighbor's yard and today I will finish the repair.

I saw several cardinals in my front yard so made a bird feeder for the front yard, I want them to keep coming, also have to remember to put fresh water for the birds every day since we are having freeze conditions. Maybe by next year I will have a solar heater for the birds' water.

Healthy, Wealthy? and Wise?


Yesterday I avoided a cat riot by going to the store and purchasing cat food, my problem now is with 4 cats in the house, none of my "stuff" on the tables and shelves stay on the tables and shelves, I have to change my way of doing things. When the puppies were here, nothing could be on the floor, now I have to keep stuff off the tables. Can't win for losing. For a change today I am listening to a webinar on gaining wealth, so maybe I could afford Christmas presents if I would follow instructions. I am just not very good at following directions, never have been, as my mom and dad would have told you. In the '80s I was a Tony Robbins fan and had all the tapes, so if I followed instructions well I would be healthy, wealthy and wise.

I talked to my grandson on the phone yesterday and always enjoy hearing him. My granddaughter will be home today for Christmas break from college, certainly will love seeing her. It is certainly great to have smart healthy grandchildren.

Reached a goal; no misspellings!

Another day down on the farm


The hose thawed out for a short time yesterday so I could fill all the containers for the livestock to drink from, I was so happy I could quit carrying water to them via bucket. I am so grateful for that thawing. I gave away a dozen of my eggs to each of my neighbors since my hens have eaten the bugs from their yards when they are free rangeing.

I am listening to a new webinar with David Wolfe this morning, he is talking about adrenal fatigue, etc. He is recommending beets and gogi berries for helping the adrenal glands etc.

The dogs and cats are tolerating each other, with all 4 cats in the house, all in different rooms it becomes a chore just to get them all fed, no one eats out of the same bowl. All but one go outdoors for elimination so I am very grateful for that little bit of help. I need to purchase more cat food as I did not get out to do that yesterday, it is an emergency today because I opened the last can today. I can see it now; a cat riot, could be messy! The dogs would enjoy it.

I have to spend some time outdoors to find the spot my hens are getting out of the barn lot to range. I am afraid they will end up as someone's Christmas Dinner. Jackie, Jimmie and Janie all three are nice and fat, the rooster, Jim does not attempt to get out, I guess he is smart and knows he could end up in a dinner pot.

Listening to Dr. Jonny Bowden

18 years ago my son had a son, Connor is a great kid!
Monroe and Quincy went home this morning so I only have all my little dogs and cats for a few days, I have to run to the store and get laundry detergent and cat food. First have to get my old car started and some gas. I am listening to a webinar by Dr. Jonny Bowden and really enjoying the learning. I also did an order of essential oils that I need and some Emu Oil, need to stock up on the ones that are for respiratory wellness: Lemon oil, peppermint, Eucalyptus, thyme and tea tree. These oils are very good to inhale, especially in the winter, besides that they make you feel good. If you have a headache, just rub on some peppermint oil on temples and forehead, a very safe 'medication' and very inexpensive. Emu oil aids in absorption so if you are wanting something to get to the source of inflammation or pain it gets there much better when used with emu oil. It in itself is a great anti inflammatory. It is a great oil and has lots of uses; arthritis, muscle and joint pain, psoriasis, eczema, shingles pan, burns, cuts, insect bites and aging skin. Purchase pure oil from a reputable company.

Monday, December 13, 2010


Again a very cold night, I got my exercises this morning trying to carry enough water to the animals in the barn lot, the chickens were trying to drink from the ice in the water barrels. I will have to do it about 4 times today because it is not going to be thawing weather today and even if I put hot water out there it will freeze quickly. I have one large bucket heated with electricity but that water does not last long.

Bad day yesterday for my football teams all three lost: Dallas, KC, and St. L. I should have checked my horoscope so I would have not cheered for them and they could have won?????

We found a home for the last puppy yesterday, Nash went to live with a young family where I am certain he will be happy. Dixie, Xena and Wally went home yesterday so we have a much less chaotic house. Lonna brought us an infrared heater and it is heating the house much better, temp yesterday did not get above 60, we have to get plastic on the windows today.

I am listening to Lesson Four of my Kwik Learning program today, this week we are learning to remember speeches. I hope I get the opportunity to do some speeches soon, it has been a while and I miss it. I think I had better start back to Toastmasters. I really enjoyed Toastmasters when I was involved.

One of the kids I had in Nursery School, way back when, is having a kidney transplant this week in St. Louis and I hope that he will do very well. It is amazing how far we have gone in that area of medicine in just a few years.

My dogs are lined up to be combed and loved so I had better get busy, they might start to riot.

Sunday, December 12, 2010


VERY CCCOOOLLDDD and windy last night and this morning, not many dogs agreeable to going out to do their business. I had to carry Sophie in from the porch because that cat was going to freeze last night. Now all four of the cats are indoors. I will send Dixie, Xena and Wally home today and my house will be so quiet, Shhh, don't tell anyone, just 13 dogs and 4 cats. The farm animals did not really want to come out of the barn to eat and the rooster only crowed one time and it was a weak crow, it says 19 on the thermometer but I think it is frozen. The livestock water is frozen solid will have to carry water after they drink what is in the heated bucket.

I am happy that Buddy found a home yesterday and I will call to follow up on him and his brother today. Nash who is at Penny's house will get a visit today to find out if he can find a good home. Monroe and Quincy are staying another couple of days.

I did not get much reading or research done yesterday but I did relisten to the Donna Gates webinar then just played Christmas music and meditation music after her webinar. I thought it might encourage the animals to relax. I did a little writing in my next book and hope to do some today after the sleepover dogs go home. I need a huge sun room just for the animals, wonder how I could get that without earning more money? I guess I had better answer one of those e-mails that tell me I could 'triple my income", if only I would do this or that and I certainly need "the secret" or positive thinking. I wonder if I imagine the room, it would appear. So much for day dreaming, I am grateful for the ability I have to dream. I made a mistake, spell check says that cccooolllddd is not a word, how narrow minded or them!

Saturday, December 11, 2010


Buddy just went to his new home, I hope he will be very happy. We will really miss him but it is a big load taken from Mema.

Beautiful Dapple Doxie


Wally, the cutest little dapple doxie, is at mema's sleepover and I am so afraid of someone hurting him, he stays in my arms or in my little sling bag all the time. Buddy plays a little hard even though they are about the same age. I have at least one family coming to see Buddy today.

Did not have a good night, Wally did not like the crate so he ended up in my bed along with everyone else. I just don't have enough patience to let him cry. Quincy was also in bed with me, he has been sleeping in the other bed but not last night.

I re read "A Cup of Christmas Tea" yesterday afternoon and then listened to it being read on http://www.youtube.com/

Both Monroe and Quincy are needing a little extra love this morning so i have to hush.

Stocking up on Superfoods and fermented foods

Picture is of Rambo.
I just ordered a lot of the superfoods to keep me healthy through the winter: cocao, gogi berries, spirilena, coconut oil, etc. etc. I am going to make an order of fermented stuff from http://www.bodyecology.com/ , I am listening to a replay of Donna Gates webinar, all the 4 legged creatures have been fed and have had a couple of runs throught the back yard. The cats are very happy that Lela is going home today!!! I will have a new little doxie here for sleepovers starting tonight, am anxious to meet him. I have not found anyone to do the gift delivery to the employment security office on Monday so will probably have to postpone that idea, my life has always had detours and postponements so I am used to that idea.

If anyone is interested in the RAVE nutrition plan, I have the DVD and the book, I am not interested in the complete program because I disagree with much of it. It does give me some information to research.

It will be much quieter today with Lela and Rambo going home even though Dixie is still here, she is the 6 foot 2 year old child, in spite of that she is loved. Everyone but Buddy is napping now and I am hoping that he will settle down quickly. I am afraid that he will some day be that 6 ft. 2 year old.

A Season for gifting


Well because of emergencies I have 6 extra dogs instead of just Monroe and Quincy. The washer is going, the dryer is going and everyone is napping. I got the big idea yesterday that I wanted to do something for the people who stand in the unemployment line. I had a lot of play dough, dolls etc. in my drawer so wrapped them all and got my packages of angel pins out, called the employment security and found that the time for the lines is Monday. I planned to pass out the gifts, hot apple cider and put the pins on people, then found that I have extra dogs on Monday so had to scrap my plans, I am hoping that someone else will go in my place, I already have the little gifts wrapped.

Three of the dogs are of the extra large variety so I have no floor space in this little house and they do not mind me stepping over them at all. Such nice dogs and they love me a lot. I am grateful today for their unconditional love and adoration.

I am listening to David Wolfe this morning via the computer, he is one of my favorite experts. I am again very grateful that I live in the electronic age.

Some homework for my "students"


As I was writing yesterday afternoon about the ways to give to others, I thought about how much of a giver my Dad was and then my thoughts went to my Mom. Mom has been dead for 40+ years but I can still remember much of her advice. So much of what she told me was right on for today's problems:


  • Never wear something with dyes in it near your body, always white socks and underclothing

  • Cotton lets your body breathe so none of those nylon undergarments.

  • Layer your clothing in the winter

That is just a little bit of her advice that rings in my head. She could sew anything without a pattern so when my uncle came back from WWII and brought a damaged parachute, we all got beautiful white nylon dresses.


Today I want you to pretend that you are in my classroom and do a bit of research on things that were in the house of grandparents that had medical benefits. Apple cider vinegar, Baking Soda, peroxide, Cinnamon, Oregano, Castor oil, Boric Acid, Sugar, and add oil of oregano and tea tree (melaleuca) oil. There are many things but these come to mind quickly. If you google "health benefits of......" you can get the information or I will be writing it all down in my next book. I was just reading a webpage of one of my experts and he was relating the testimonials of cancer patients that were healed by flooding their cancer with baking soda. I filled wounds with a sugar and honey paste for healing and it worked better than all the ointments. I clean my sinks and toilets with soda and vinegar and clear all my drains with it too. And if I get bladder cancer I will use it on that drain too.


I will have Quincy and Monroe starting tonight and I am anxious to see how much fun they can have with the puppy, that is, if the puppy does not find a new family.

Promoting giving during this holiday season!


Today as I was writing and I felt the need to give some suggestions for ways to serve your fellow man during the holidays. I hope you will read this and get some ideas that you can use for service.

I believe that giving to individuals is much more fun than giving to organizations but if you have fully checked out the organization it can be a really great thing to give to nonprofit organizations too. Here are some suggestions that I would like to make; A poor college student may need travel money to get home for the holidays, a new or reused computer, books for the next semester, a small gift card to purchase small gifts for his or her family members (when I was in college 60 years ago a couple at church gave me money to go to the book store and buy some gifts for my family), quarters for the laundry at college, etc. The homeless all need caps, socks, food, gloves, shoes, thermal underwear, soap, shaving supplies, etc. The elderly need home repairs, heating bills paid, a tank of gas for their vehicle, a gift certificate to a restaurant, if you live in the city, bus tokens or subway tickets are great gifts for the homeless and the elderly. Find a family with an old car, pay for their gas tank fill up at the service station. As you walk out of the restaurant, look at the customers, pick a family or an old couple and pay for their meal. If you go to the utility company, pay for someones utilities then send them the receipt. See if your grocery or supermarket will let you come at the end of the day and pick up day old breads and bruised fruits and vegetables to take to the Salvation Army shelter.

If you want to wrap some useful gifts and just pass them out randomly on the street, it is great fun.

There are so many little things you can do to serve others; sit down and make a list then do it!! This is most important if you have children, so that they can develop a gratitude and giving spirit.

My typical day??




Did not get anything accomplished yesterday, too many dogs and too much fun. Dixie and Xena should get picked up today and there will be a bit less activity. Quincy and Monroe are supposed to come today but have not heard from them for certain. I do think it odd that people will schedule their dogs over a month ago then not reconnect to be certain that we will remember to pick them up. I also think it funny that people will be ready to leave home and just remember that their dogs can't stay home alone. I did have a mom call me from Texas, she had gotten my number from a friend, and tell me she had left her two little dogs alone in the apartment; she was gone for a week and needed me to go pick them up even though I had never met the dogs. That is a 'good' mom, don't you think? She had put the dogs outside before she left and we had a big snow on the ground. Her little Westies did survive and I took them home with me, there was also a cat in the house. People are really unpredictable, they never quit surprising me. Maybe when I am 80 I will be able to figure them out. I can figure out dogs and cats; just not people.


My memory classes went well yesterday and I also listened to Ann Taylor; not sure if I trust her or not but she is an energy healing person and can't do any harm. I did watch Oprah yesterday, it was good and I enjoyed it. She did a book club thing and made the statement that she had never read Dickens. The first English Lit book that I really enjoyed was; A Tale of Two Cities, must have been because it was so well written, it got my attention.


Gotta get busy, cleaning up puppy poop, etc. etc.

Cold, cold, cold




It is soooooo cooolllldddd this morning, but the sun is shinning! Jesse is 'feeling his oats' this morning so had to keep him in the back yard for a while so the female goats could relax a bit and eat, he certainly is fond of his nannies.


Dixie and Xena are still here and Rambo and Lela came this morning so I have no space in my little house. Everyone is having a great time especially Buddy; lots of playmates. Since Lela is here all the cats are living as high up in the house as possible. Everyone is napping at this moment.


Chiefs, Cowboys and Rams all won yesterday so I guess you would say that I had a lucky day. According to the experts, I watched TV many hours too many for my health.


I started my third week of memory classes and have to find places to use the stuff I learn. I am listening to Christmas music, if I could find my little tree I would put it up on a high shelf somewhere, the cats will probably enjoy it, that is, if I can find it, may have to dig one up or take a limb from my huge pine tree. By the way, spell check says; cooollllddd is not a word!!

Two more puppies need a home


I had a great day yesterday, connecting with an old friend also was with family and that is always nice. I just love being with humans for a change! Still have 2 puppies and Dixie and Xena came for the weekend. Lots of play this morning but everyone is having a nice nap now and I am listening to a bit of Christmas music. When Dan loaded my laptop, he put all kinds of music on it, I am listening to Christmas music from a Saxophone.It is cold today and looks like winter outdoors, had to put my shoes on and that means it is really cold. Just gotta be happy that I have shoes. It is a sign of real winter when Stormy comes into the house to sleep.

Today I start my third week of memory classes and speed reading, I love it! My eyes are dry today, watched too much basketball and football yesterday afternoon and evening. I was lucky with the basketball games but one of my football teams was not so lucky. I need to find out when my Chiefs and Cowboys are playing today. I heard from an expert that we were not supposed to watch more than 12 hours a week of TV, that would not be enough time to even see 4 games of any kind, he has to be a terrible expert and one that hates sports!! I hope he means that you should not sit for 12 hours, you think?? I do have to get back on a better exercise schedule, the puppies have distracted me, they have really upset this old lady's routine. I hear that it is good to have some distractions, it helps energize you. This old train wreck needs to get back on tract.

Showing Puppies


Am having lunch with a friend I have not seen for 4 years, I am excited! will show the puppies to families this afternoon, Lonna unloaded her camera so I have pictures to show.

A home for Kidd


I was so happy to let a new family welcome Kidd into their home. Buddy is so much easier without the brother. Spent some time outdoors with all the animals yesterday and the weather looks good today; a little cool but bearable. I thought I got the barn lot fencing chicken proofed but 2 of my little hens went for a "walk on the wild side" and I had to round them up. I have to work a bit harder today to close off their little door to the "wild side".

My Suns were on TV last night so I stayed up a bit late to see them win. I love to watch those guys! As I watch I get some reading done, am still trying to get all my information on Quantum Touch added to my brain computer. Also did some study of the Emotional Code. I went through some new DVDs of Qigong/yoga mix and found them very good. Oops the cat just ran across my keyboard and I had to start over, she likes electronics, must make her feel better. After I got her off my computer she went to the cable box to sit. The cats are eating me out of house and home, I have to get more food today. Nellie is a big eater!! All the animals are requiring more food, it must be the cold weather.

Today I must express my gratitude for families who want to rescue a small puppy and are willing to make the commitment to care for an animal. I am also grateful for the beautiful sunshine today. The family who adopted Kidd was of course, rewarded with a couple of my books, they may not read them but at least I am giving them the opportunity to learn.

Life on the tiny farm


As you can see by the picture, Kidd loves to sleep in my lap. Wish he could sleep in your lap. They are doing everything that puppies do; pee, poop, chew, play and cuddle. Keeping me busy just cleaning up after them and trying to be certain that everyone else gets plenty of love too.

Watched basketball on tv last night and listened to a webinar by Dr. Brad Nelson on emotional healing. Today I have to try the yard cleaning because it is going to be a bit warmer. Also gotta fix a spot in the fence since the chickens are free "rangeing" a bit far and I am afraid one of my neighbors will have them for dinner. I have three little hens and am getting 3 little eggs a day, won't last long in cold weather because if I remember correctly, chickens don't lay many eggs in cold weather. Since it has been 60 years since I lived on a farm, I don't remember a lot of the habits of farm animals. I just have to remind myself that the next time someone says they have a "throw away" animal that needs a home: "I have reached my limit"!! It takes a lot of money to feed everyone the best and keep them all healthy. Everyone is having a morning nap and the washer and dryer are going and I have a few more chores.

Connecting with old and new friends


Cold but sunny today so maybe it will be warm enough to spend time outdoors. Penny took Nash home with her yesterday so Buddy and Kidd are busy making up for the absence of Nash. They are sleeping better but messes are still frequent, Kidd wants to take his nap in my lap and get away from Buddy. Beautiful little personalities but busy little puppies. Tator is the only older dog who enjoys them, Jackson wants to play but really does not know how to handle their play.

I did some of the new exercise/qigong videos yesterday and found them rather good. I also tried to do some reading but the puppies make it almost impossible.

I got a call from an old friend yesterday and enjoyed it a lot, will try to see her this weekend, if someone can come stay with my dogs. Also made a new friend from Canada via facebook; interested in energy medicine and wellness so we have a lot in common. I love reconnecting with old friends and also making new friends. I am so grateful that because of technology I can do both.

Because of the puppies I am not getting to spend much time with my farm animals so have to make an effort today. I will bring them into the back yard; my neighbor changed his yard decor and he put the bales of hay and his pumpkins into my back yard for the animals. I don't have to change my decor; leaves and trash, that is my decor. I am happy I don't spend my time keeping up with the neighbors' yards.

Puppies are waking up from their nap and I need to start the washer and dryer.

LIstening to Dr. Mercola and David Wolfe


Brrrrrrr cold this morning. My little puppies love to go out with me, watch everyone pottie then come back in and ...........Lot of clean up! Now they are ready to nap, on my rebounder, but if I get up and move about, they have to move too. Molly and Coco went home last evening and I have a bit more room to walk about in the house. Kidd, Nash and Buddy are always exactly where I need to walk, of course.

I am listening to Dr. Mercola and David Wolfe in a repeat webinar, so much good information. As I listen and write, have to have coffee to keep my hands warm. There are several different videos so I will get to listen for a long time this morning as I clean up, do wash, fold laundry and talk to the four legged creatures, I sing to them but they do not seem to enjoy it a lot, don't know why, I have a booming voice and can sing 2 octaves without difficulty.

I have to get to the bank because I put my last 2 books on Kindle yesterday and need to replenish my account. It was my only cyber Monday purchase. I think that shows a lot of restraint; had plenty of opportunity to spend money, my e-mails were full of great offers. I did get my new Qigong DVDs yesterday and my Donna Gates Book. Need to increase my memory and speed reading quickly so I can catch up. My classes are progressing well even with the puppies as distractions. Wish someone else would love these little distractions, I vowed years ago; "No more puppies" older dogs only, I am too much of a doormat and "I am just a girl that can't say, No". How can you say no to these sweet little animals?

A Night with New Puppies


I went and got the puppies, they are cute but terrible. I had almost forgotten how really bad puppies are, I did resort to a kennel in my bedroom for them to sleep, they slept 2 hours than had to be out for 2 hours then on and on. The other dogs already hate them but are very tolerant. Of course there is pee and poop everywhere, it is a good thing I do not have anything nice to be ruined. My biggest problem is with my computer cords, etc. They bonded very rapidly and want to be close to me at all times. I named them Nash, Kidd and Buddy. Buddy was the shy one then the other two are NBA stars that I love; fast moving, assertive and everything is fun. We took Rambo and Lela home so the cats are happy but still have Molly and Coco, haven't heard from the Mama guess she just forgot to tell me she is home, I will call her soon and see if Penny could bring them home, Molly and Coco are not very tolerant of the puppies antics.

I did my Kwik learning lessons yesterday and last night tried to watch the Hallmark show, it was such a nice little show, I loved it.

New Stray Puppies comming


Dixie, Zena and Zoey went home last evening and the house is a bit quieter, but today I will pick up three stray puppies that I do not need. Maybe we will find a home for them quickly. Does anyone want a male lab/pit bull ?? mix? Diane says they are very sweet and smart little dogs. In the time of black Friday/ciber Monday, you can take one free and get a second one free, such a bargain! Anyone that would stay in a tent at the store front door for several days for a bargain should be glad to get a free puppy. I may have to start feeding cheaper food than the best.

It is cold this morning because there is some wind, the dogs love it outdoors but I can't stay long and they do follow me in quickly. I suppose I make a nice security blanket for them. Nellie and Ruby are hoping that Lela goes home today, she has had too too much Lela the past several days. She will have infinite love and gratitude when Lela is gone!! I an grateful this morning that I have four walls and a roof and also a soft bed to sleep in, can't imagine how difficult life could be, homeless. anything is possible. I will give away some more books today as I travel to pick up the puppies, would be nice if I would sell them, wouldn't it?

I will do more of my Jim Kwik memory classes today and by tomorrow I should be able to remember everything!!

I have to go get another cup of coffee to keep my hands nice and warm and Rambo says he has been out of my lap way too long so gotta quit rambling.

Beautiful sunshine




Beautiful sunshine today, looks warm but I am not fooled by the look, after running with the dogs and feeding all the outdoor animals, I know how cold it is but it will warm up I am sure. I am listening to Darren Weissman who teaches Infinite Love and Gratitude; replaying a webinar. I have gratitude for the ability and strength to care for all these animals and am very grateful for the sun, more time outdoors. I think Jill will come for a while this morning so I am grateful that I can talk to a two legged creature also. Plenty of football to watch today and I will love it!


I think Dixie and Xena will be going home this afternoon and that will give me a bit more floor space. Most of them are napping now but Jackson, Rambo and Zoey, they are playing right under my feet.

winter scene out my window!


I feel like the day should be about over, too much ice to go through to feed the livestock and lots of dogs and cats to feed. Now everyone is napping and I have to get busy in the kitchen, in the bathroom and in the living room, cleaning a bit just to get through the house. Everyone is fat and happy but me and I am just fat, well maybe happy too, just tired. I will have to do a lot of qigong and rebounding today. My Internet was off this morning, the little box was not lighting up, I had to unplug and replug, don't know whether the cat or dogs were responsible, someone was. I can hear it now,"not me, not me". My trees are ice covered and the sun is shinning through them so my window looks like a Christmas card. The water did not have time to soak in before it froze so I could have skated to the barn that is if I knew how to skate. I am happy to cyber shop instead of going out to all the stores, fighting the crowds and the cold. The shopping channels keep trying to entice me with "split up your payments for 6 months", etc. Free shipping really gets me excited.

Penny brought me some really good food last evening and Lonna came and spend a couple of hours so I did get to speak to two legged creatures.

I listened to a lot of webinars yesterday and almost caught up on the ones I had saved, learned a little and now I have more stuff to research.

Gone to the Dogs!!


As I 'cleaned' my house yesterday I listened to "Happiness for no reason", enjoyed it and will need to take some notes on it later. when I say clean; meaning able to tolerate a couple of rooms. Got a call from a friend and she has not been able to find a home for a couple of puppies, so will probably bring them on Sunday; I will put Tamera at work trying to find a home for them and a "chiwawa" that Diane has also.

I am listening to a replay of David Wolfe's newest webinar and learning a lot, will have to re listen several times. Hope I can purchase his book and DVDs.

I can't believe it but Lela just came in and knocked over my coffee cup and is trying to taste Nellie the cat. She is a loving dog but so big and clumsy. Dixie and her sister will be here later today.

Listening to Dr. Stephen Sinatra/Clint Ober


Last night I got to listen to a webinar by Clint Ober and Dr. Stephen Sinatra, two of my favorite people. they were talking about the importance of touching the earth; Earthing (grounding). I really believe that touching Mother Earth is so important and am sad that it is almost too cold to go barefoot out doors. One of the focus is healing arthritis and thyroid problems by just going barefoot or sleeping on a grounding sheet. I have the book and the grounding mat to put my feet on under my computer. If I am having trouble sleeping I place my little mat on my bed under my shoulders.

I have Molly and Coco now for the rest of the week and they are really enjoying everyone. It does get active under my feet, hope I don't trip over a dog and break some bones. Will have Dixie and Xena, Rambo and Lela on Wednesday morning.

I was reviewing the information I have on Quantum Touch Healing yesterday and found a practitioner nearby so will meet her next week and make a new friend. I also reviewed my study materials for my Jim Kwik memory program and am progressing. I am doing my vision improvement routines, etc.

Started my Jim Kwik classes onling


It is beginning to rain so had to be certain to get Jesse back into the barn area, he hates rain. All my goats hate to get wet and I have to be certain to get them out of the back yard when it starts to rain. Everyone is fed and taking their morning nap and Nellie seems to feel better today. She ate her breakfast and has been out with the dogs a couple of times. I will get two more dogs today for sleep overs through the holiday, Coco and Molly, I really love those two dogs, but I really love most dogs. Molly a beagle and Coco a Corgi.

I am listening to Sue Mortar this morning, a replay webinar, I don't know how much good she does me but I listen, just in case. Yesterday I started my memory and speed reading program, Jim Kwik's program, an online class for 6 weeks. I started recalling my days of the Dale Carnegie classes back in the olden day, 1978 I believe was the first classes my husband and I took and really enjoyed, kept being graduate assistants until his illness and death. I started yesterday remembering lists of 10 and 20 things. I also got the class for Jill, my youngest, I think it will help her. I will get another dog tomorrow then the others will come on Wednesday.

I was not enjoying Sue Mortar so I changed to Donna Eden to listen to this morning.

As you can see from the picture, Zoey is assisting me.

Peanut Brittle


I am replaying the lecture by Dr. Symeon Rodger this morning because I am in and out so much I miss a lot so have to keep re listening. It makes me want to start my exercises and Qigong right away this morning, so I can negate the 7 deadly spirals of disease in my body.

Very windy today so lots of sounds in my little house that are not dog or cat sounds, more like ghost sounds.

My children and their friends went to "Steal you dollar city" yesterday; it has been tradition in our house for 40 years to always bring me some peanut brittle when anyone goes, so, I have peanut brittle to eat today. When my children were small, my husband was always taking groups of under served children and disabled adults on trips to Silver Dollar City and when ever he went he always brought back peanut brittle. Since his death the children continue to bring me Peanut Brittle whenever they go. I am grateful that my teeth are good enough to chew it!!

Nellie, the cat, does not feel well today; did not eat all her food and spit up on my desk. She must have eaten something at the barn that did not agree with her digestive system. She is sitting here on the desk in the window asleep now. Jackson and Zoey are playing so hard that most of the dogs are having their nap interrupted. They are of course, playing right under my feet!! I have a lot to do and I have to get busy.

Just Rambling today


I just read a quote on Twitter: Cats are smarter than dogs, no one could get 8 cats to pull a sled through snow. I do agree, my cats are too lazy and do not like cold.


I got a bale of hay last night for my livestock and they are happy. JR the mini mule is eating as fast as he can this morning but he does not move very fast. Coffee cup feels good this morning but the sun is shinning so will probably be a nice day. My kids are going to "Steal your Dollars" City today with a group of friends; crafting and riding all the funky rides, should be a nice day for it. I could not go because every time I spend money on something like that, I think about better things the money could go for, too much "guilty feelings" whispering in my ear. Just think how many hunger animals or children that money could feed.


Zoey is enjoying her vacation with us and Monday evening we pick up Molly and Coco, beagle and Corgi, then I add some every day. Sleepover at Mema's is very full for Thanksgiving; Lonna will bring me some large bags of Blue Buffalo food, it is the best. I wonder if there is any place that has damaged bags of Blue?


I have been wearing my pinhole glasses to improve my vision, doing my eye exercises, taking my eye supplements, etc. I can now read 12 point print but most of the books etc. are 11 pt or smaller. I will keep working at it to get perfect vision and am putting drops of castor oil in my eyes at night to disolve any cataracts that might be forming. Give me another month to become perfect.

Winter is on it's way!


Really frosty this morning, had to put my shoes on when I went to take care of the animals. The sun is shinning so it will warm up a bit I know, Zoey is coming today, that little white dog gives every one exercise, it is run, run, run. Sophie the cat did not come for breakfast this morning on the deck, when I went looking, she came running from the direction of the barn and acted a little frightened. I had to hold her and feed her so she would look comfortable. Don't know what happened, wish she could talk. Since it was cold last night I tried to get both Sophie and Stormy to come inside but they went right back out, guess they are happier out side.

I did some more reading on the Kwik reading and recall systems, wish I had known this 50 years ago. I do remember sending my husband and son to rapid reading seminars back in the '70s. I am grateful that those things are available now. I am also very thankful for the sun this morning, bought some black water hose to get water to the barn lot and put it to use this morning, black hose thaws faster than the other colors so I can thaw it out fast once the sun comes out. I am already dreading the feeding and watering routine when it is very cold and especially in ice and snow, guess it makes me healthier. Whoever goes to football games tonight will really have to bundle up. Here comes Zoey so gotta hush and go run.

Thursday, November 18, 2010


I had a wonderful luncheon yesterday with two new friends. I am afraid I talked too much because my interaction with 2 legged creatures has been so restricted the past few years. They bought some of my books so that is different, I usually give away many more than I sell. just in case you are interested I have some to sell and they are available on http://www.amazon.com/


I am listening to a webinar this morning as I go about my business; Jim Kwik, brain longevity. I have never heard this speaker so am anxious to hear what he has to say. I got a new book to read yesterday: Why Marry a Millionaire? Just Be One, and while you are at it change the world, by Wendy Robbins. I started reading it last night and it appears to have some good info. Not that a 76 years old lady could marry a millionaire anyway, maybe I could be one??????


I am grateful for new friends and also grateful that it did not snow last night, felt like it might.


Jim Kwik is reminding me of Dale Carnegie classes, techniques for remembering names, etc. One of his subjects is speed reading, also. He is into reading a book a day. I do that but mostly on line. I am going to have to re play this one because when I am working around the house I miss too much. I would suggest that you look him up on the web or at the book store. I will see if his information is on Kindle.


When the NSI recommended a supplement, Modifilan for removing toxic heavy metal from your system, I ordered it, started taking it this morning, just because. Can't imagine how I can figure out whether or not it is effective, Oh Well.


Today I have to do some house cleaning so I have to get started, my least favorite job.

Infinite Love and Gratitude


I am cold this morning, went out barefoot but need my shoes. I had to get everyone fed and now we are all relaxed and most are napping. I am listening to Dr. Darren Weissman, I have one of his books on Kindle and practice some of his Lifeline techniques, Infinite Love and Gratitude. So much to be learned. I am so grateful that I am going to do a bit of socializing today with new friends.

I just glanced out the window and saw Stormy the cat dart down the driveway on her way back from the barn where she always goes after breakfast for a bit of dessert. She then scratches the door for another little treat. She certainly lives a good life after being a stray. I think she is so interesting to watch. I have developed a love of cats in the past 5 years, I thought you had to be a dog person or a cat person but I find that they mix rather well. I read an article about how teflon is poisoning birds so went out and picked up the old teflon skillet that I had out for watering the cats and birds. It is like the canary in the mine; kills birds, next kills humans??

Ludwick, one of the min. doxies, has something wrong with one toe and it is swollen so I have been soaking it in warm water, hydrogen peroxide, oil of oregano and Melaleuca oil. I can't see any wound but he licks it a lot so I treat it.

Curious cats and bossy dogs


I am grateful that I see sun this morning, rained last night. I have a long list of things to do and much of it is outside stuff, do love the sun.

I am listening to Donna Gates http://www.bodyecology.com/ this morning, learning new things about fermented foods. I do learn a lot from her and in the background I am listening to healing sounds. I did stay up a bit late last night because I started doing some writing in my next book, had to write while I remembered some new researched information. The dogs think we deserve a nap; they do not like being up late. The cats were confused also because Lonna was home last night and they could not understand that they do not have the run of the house when she is here, she does not allow them in her room. They like to have access to every nook and cranny of the house. I can't say that I blame them. Nellie and Ruby are both very curious cats. Sophie and Stormy are still comfortable outdoors but I expect as the weather gets consistently cold they will be indoors too. I ordered some weaker reading glasses last night on http://www.zennioptical.com/ as I am improving my eyesite with Greg Marsh system. I can order reading glasses for less than $7 and can afford to keep going to weaker corrections. I will let you know how pleased I am with the product.

Northwest Arkansas Fencing Foundation Meeting


I just got back from having a get acquainted coffee for the Northwest Arkansas Fencing Foundation. I am on the board of this organization: empowering youth and disabled persons of Northwest Arkansas to become exceptional athletes through the sport of fencing. We work with under served youth of northwest Arkansas and disabled persons. Hoping to assist youth in getting college scholarships. I did get to mingle with a lot of nice 2 legged creatures and met some people I did not know. I love visiting with intelligent people.

The animals missed me, I had to hurry everyone through their morning routine because of traffic I had to leave home by 7 am. Everyone felt a bit left out because I was in a hurry. On my way home I had to pick up horse food and dog food, have to do it all so I won't burn gas to go back into town. I have a board meeting via phone this afternoon and the dogs will feel completely left out again.

I did some reading and writing yesterday as I listened to "Random acts of art" which I really enjoyed, listen to several at, http://www.knightarts.org/ it is such a pleasure to listen to and watch. Also had to research all the stuff I learned from reading the reports from the Health Science Institute. Lots of work to do today to catch up, my list is getting longer not shorter.

"Frost on the Pumpkin"


You could truthfully say the frost is on the pumpkin this morning, my neighbor has a fall display in his yard and the pumpkins are covered with a heavy frost. I did go out barefoot this morning but my toes felt very frosty. Lonna came yesterday afternoon for about 10 minutes so I did see a two legged creature, she brought some food that was left from the luncheon they served and also had been to Sam's Club so had bags of dried fruit, baking soda, etc., etc. I am well stocked for a few days. The dogs and cats had bits of ham in their breakfast this morning and loved me a lot for giving them a taste.

I am re listening to Bob Proctor this morning, he is so inspirational to listen to, not that I follow through with his suggestions.

Even Domino, the border collie, wanted to sleep in the bed last night with the rest of us so I did not really sleep well. Part of my problem was that I had a nutrition bar yesterday that contained sugar and I know better now, I learn from my mistakes. I think the goats would have come in too if I had let them back into the yard instead of in the barn lot. Everyone wants to hibernate with me. Nice sunshine today so the frost really sparkles. I will be able to get my free vitamin D today and also make my telemeres longer going barefoot, so I can increase the activity of all my body systems.

Got some new reading material yesterday and now have to decipher it and do more research. A representative of Protocel called yesterday to see how the product was working, had to tell her that it was on my shelf waiting for someone else to need it, it treats cancer; I wanted it so I could offer it to someone else, I do not need it and never will. I did have a nice discussion with her and told her about the experts that I listen to and believe. I have no problem talking to anyone about real wellness, not hard for me to get on my old soapbox.

Need to do work inside today


The sick computer came home and I don't like the way it is behaving but I guess that is the problem with customer service from the support team. I can't get into hotmail, facebook, twitter of my google, I wasted a lot of time trying to get it to work so now must request help from family and friends. I just wrote this blog on it and could not get it to publish so have to rewrite.

It is so wet and cooolllddd this morning as I was caring for my livestock and running the dogs. I think I will stay inside today as much as possible. The dogs begged me to hurry and turn up the heat in the little electric fireplace so they could nap in a warm spot.

I did an evaluation of my vision program and found much improvement, I am really pleased with the program put together by Greg Marsh and would love to go learn from him in Fort Collins, Colorado. I wonder if I have any relatives who live there? I could probably stay a while with my cuz in Boulder. I would then be able to teach the program and all my friend and relatives would be able to throw away their glasses, wouldn't that be great.

I have a long list of things to do today but am going to skip most of the stuff that is outdoors.

Friday, November 12, 2010


I spent yesterday with my granddaughter, Molly, at college, she had the day off, her mom had the day off and I............ It was a good day, spent some time with my friends Jim and Mary Alice, in the '60s we spent lots of time together, that was 'a while back'. I am grateful that I have old friends and also grateful that Molly is doing well in college.

It looks like fall is here, cloudy, some wind and lots of falling leaves. Since my animals missed me yesterday I have the feeling that I have Velcro attached to me this morning. I have lots to catch up with today, my chores do not get done unless I do them. Several calls on the road yesterday of people needing dog/cat sitting during the upcoming holidays. A few to sleepover at Mema's house, looks like Thanksgiving will be a lot of fun, hope it isn't bad weather so we can spend a lot of time outdoors, running and playing.

I downloaded an audio by Czerral Wheeler yesterday early so I could listen and absorb the information. He was lecturing on how to make yourself and your family immune to chronic disease. Fermented superfoods was one of his answers and I of course, agreed with that suggestion. I still have to look at the research projects he did at Harvard in the '80s in which he and his co researcher cured cancer in hamsters with superfoods. It of course was dropped because the drug companies were not involved and very little money can be made on spirulina. They should have mixed it with crestor or prilosec and no one would have cancer today. There goes my soap box again so I had better shut up.
