SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'

Fall is my most favorite time of the year.  But here in Florida, it's still warm and humid like summer.  I MISS FALL but I don't miss winter !    One day in November, we will wake up and the days will be in the 70's and that's when people start wearing "winter" clothes.   When I first moved here in 2004, I laughed at these funny Floridians.
  Now I'm one of them.   Yes, when the temps turn to the 70's, I drag out my winter clothes too!


Note FYI:
I will be having my first knee replaced this winter because I have no cartilage in either knee.  I had gotten to the point I couldn't get into my beloved RV but a friend told me about this and I purchased it for myself and I can navigate the entrance into the RV in no time, bad knees and all !

 7 Bacteria-Ridden Spots That You Touch Every Day
https://brightnest.com/posts/7-bacteria-ridden-spots-that-you-touch-every-day?source=digest

Make your own anti-bacterial spray
What You'll Need:
hydrogen peroxide (3% solution)
undiluted white vinegar
2 spray nozzles
one spray bottle
How To:
Hydrogen peroxide comes in a brown bottle because it’s extremely light sensitive. So leave it in the original bottle! Instead of transferring the liquid to another spray bottle, simply put a nozzle on the brown bottle from the store.
Fill an empty spray bottle with undiluted white vinegar.
Hold your hydrogen peroxide bottle in one hand and vinegar bottle in the other. Mist the surface you’d like to disinfect with the hydrogen peroxide and then follow up with a mist of the vinegar. Important: Don’t combine the two liquids into one bottle – they will form a new chemical if they’re combined that doesn’t work as well.
This technique was developed to be sprayed directly onto food, but you can use it to disinfect anything in your house. (This is especially handy when you have a sick person in your house). If you do use the spray on fruit or vegetables, rinse the food with water after you’ve disinfected to remove any lingering flavors.

Kitten Nearly Dies On Vegan Diet
A kitten who nearly died after its owners fed it a strict vegan diet was nursed back to health with 20 CCs of meat.
It turns out that a diet of potatoes, rice milk and pasta is bad for cats. Veterinarians in Australia who cared for a violently ill vegan kitten are warning pet owners not to "force ideologies" on their pets, the Herald Sun reports.

Fort Smith Animal Hospital workers in North Melbourne told the site that the kitten was brought in this month by its owners, who were believed to be vegan.

"It was extremely weak and collapsed when it came in. It was almost non-responsive," Dr. Leanne Pinfold said.

The kitty was given intravenous fluids, placed on a heat pad and fed plenty of meat, the Orlando Sentinel reports. The poor orange kitten spent three days in the hospital.

Though the idea of turning a carnivorous cat into a pretentious leaf masticator is popular, vets say it's dangerous.

"You can't force your ideology on the cat," Pinfold told the Herald Sun. "Carnivores will seek out meat and your cat is possibly more likely to go hunting and kill local native fauna if you deprive it of meat."

She reportedly gave the owners meat to feed the little guy.

Honeycrisp Apples To Soon Be Available Year-Round « CBS Minnesota

The fiber in apples helps people with lung diseases.   Ask your doctor.   I eat an apple every day.


Tip From Cuisine Magazine:
To prevent sliced mushrooms from becoming soggy while sautéing, it’s important to be sure the pan is properly heated, otherwise the mushrooms will absorb the oil. First, heat the pan, then add the oil, heat it again, then add the sliced mushrooms, being sure not to crowd them.

 JOKES AND CARTOONS
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And to pass it on to other folks.

While I sat in the reception area of my doctor's office, a woman rolled an elderly man in a wheelchair into the room. As she went to the receptionist's desk, the man sat there, alone and silent. Just as I was thinking I should make small talk with him, a little boy slipped off his mother's lap and walked over to the wheelchair. Placing his hand on the man's, he said, “I know how you feel. My Mom makes me ride in the stroller too.”




A little girl and her mother are at church when the little girl starts to feel sick. Her mother tells her to go throw up in the bushes behind the church. When the little girl returns, her mother asks her if she threw up. "Yes," the girl says. "But I didn't have to go all the way around the back. There was a box near the front door that said 'For the Sick.'"

I have a mental eraser too


 

A mother mouse and a baby mouse were walking along, when all of a sudden, a cat attacked them. The mother mouse goes, "BARK!" and the cat runs away.

"See?" says the mother mouse to her baby. "Now do you see why it's important to learn a foreign language?"

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



All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation
http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/prayernation.asp


'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
