Being a child of the 50's, my Mama told me NEVER throw away any clothes or shoes or anything of fashion.  She said the style will come back.   What she didn't tell me was it wouldn't fit !   But that's another story... smile.   The only thing I saved that I can wear is my sack dresses.  Don't tell me you don't remember THOSE.
A loose, unbelted dress that hangs straight from the shoulder to the hemline.
Don't laugh... they are coming back, just like Mama said !   Infact, I hear all the clothes from that whole era is coming back.  I hope you saved yours and I hope you can fit into them!

There are so many things we must protect, but this project is near and dear to my heart.

The Earth is about 4.5 billion years old.
The Amazon rainforest produces more than 20% the world's oxygen supply.
The oceans of the world would rise about 60 meters if Antarctica's ice sheets melted.
About 27 tons of dust rains down on the earth each day from space.
Of all known forms of animals life ever to inhabit the Earth, only about 10% still exist today.
Only 3% water of the earth is fresh, the remaining 97% is salted. Of that 3%; over 2% is frozen in ice sheets and glaciers. Meaning that less than 1% of fresh water is found in lakes, rivers and underground.

6 Air Purifying House Plants
1. Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldehyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.

2. Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldehyde.

3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldehyde from the air.

5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They're often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they're known for removing mold spores. Also known to remove formaldehyde.

6. Gerber/Gerbera Daisy: This bright, flowering plant is effective at removing trichloroethylene, which you may bring home with your dry cleaning. It's also good for filtering out the benzene that comes with inks. Add one to your laundry room or bedroom — presuming you can give it lots of light.

"A Gardeners Outlook on Life"

Take up the spade with song.
Nurture early on.

Be fervent while you plot.
Chart the spot.

Prune with certainty and care.
Growth stops there.

Patience, patience, time to grow.
Reap what you sow.

Hardly the Garden of Eden?
Thankful for another season.

EWG's Guide to Healthy Cleaning

Modern technology has brought us many benefits, including mosquito traps that cost hundreds of dollars, but sometimes we overlook simple solutions to difficult challenges such as mosquito control. When it comes to controlling pests, research tends to focus on chemicals or concepts that can be patented. Unless someone can make a profit from an idea, the public may never become aware of it.


Items needed:
200 ml water
50 grams of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
2-liter plastic bottle

Or US conversion:
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar

1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)

Change the solution every 2 weeks for continuous control.

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

Billy Graham's Prayer For Our Nation
'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12
