Frustration with my phone

Friday, November 07, 2014

Silly phone won't let me get my pictures off of it and I also got my children to try and they could not get them off so they say that there is something wrong with my phone and so now I have to take it to the place so that I can get them to fix it. So frustrating to have that happen. Seems like the more high tech it is the worse the problem they seem to have.

    I have a dumb phone with no camera, no texting, no internet.

Today the sunlight on the fall tree foliage was so beautiful; just spectacular. It actually made me consider getting a smart phone - I would love to be able to have taken pix today and post them on my blog.

You're right, hi tech can be very frustrating. Hope you can get you pix downloaded safely!

    I have a dumb phone that just calls and texts - no pictures. Then a couple of cameras that take pictures and movies. I pull the memory chip out and stick it in a computer slot to download the pictures if I want to keep them. It's a lot cheaper that way.

    That's why I love my "dumb phone". An older flip type model. Smart phones are not something I want, although they do have some very cool features.
Hope they can help you get your pictures off of it. Hope all is well with you.

A Slice of Bread Can Fracture Your Bones

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Carl Lowe | Jan 20, 2014 |

If your digestive system reacts to bread and other foods made from wheat, rye or barley (which contain gluten), your bones may be in danger. So the sooner you give up gluten the better.
People with celiac, an autoimmune sensitivity to gluten, often suffer chronic damage to their small intestine. The result of this damage, according to researchers at Karolinska University Hospital Stockholm, Sweden: a greater risk of a broken hip or other bone fractures.
Damage to the intestinal mucous membrane can interfere with calcium absorption. That process often weakens the skeletal structure.
“We believe that giving the mucous membrane — the moist tissue lining the small intestine — a chance to heal can lower the risk of complications, including bone fractures, in celiac patients,” says researcher Jonas F. Ludvigsson. “Our research confirmed that patients had a higher rate of hip fractures when tissue damage persisted over time. Sticking to a gluten-free diet is crucial for minimizing tissue damage and reducing the risk of a serious fracture that could cause other complications.”
In this research, more than 7,000 people with celiac were tracked for about a decade after being diagnosed with celiac. The scientists found that those with persistent tissue damage were more likely to break a hip. All of the people in the study faced a similar risk close to the time of the follow-up biopsy (an examination of the intestinal lining). The group with persistent tissue damage had a heightened risk of hip fracture beginning five years after the follow-up biopsy, indicating a higher

    I don't know how I got unsubscribed from your blogs, but I just re-subscribed.

I hadn't heard this, this helps explain why so many older people have, and die, from hip fractures, hmmm?

If man hadn't messed with the grains, if they were the good grains God made, then we wouldn't be having this problem. But due to man's messing with them, grains now contain 50%+ gluten than they did originally.

    Did you know that they put wheat into everything! The gluten from wheat is like glue, so it is used as a thickener. it's in all kinds of sauces, including barbecue, and even moth wash, even salad dressings. So many people that give up what they think is gluten, don't know all the stuff it's in, and their conditions get worse. I am not about the rest of what I am about to say, but it affects people in different ways, like I believe it is one of the problems in MS, and in bi-polar, and possibly Lupus. the other elements that make each illness different is whether they eat sugar, salt, or fat, and if they drink, or do drugs. Like a chemistry lab , our stomachs process their mixture & out comes the illness. getting away from processed foods, fast foods, man made foods, and caffeine, and pop will help most illnesses to get some what better. getting out for 15 minutes a day in sun light helps the bones, as well as vitamin d, and walking also strengths the bones. eating foods that put calcium, and magnesium into your body helps the bones. best of luck to you. p.s. -sorry for your loss, it looks like you deeply loved your husband. eva

    Wow I missed this!
I've gone from just being allergic to wheat to actually not being able to tolerate any grains at all. Nothing from grasses... not even rice. Makes me really sick. I am not sure, though, if it is because of GMOs or what. I know that GMO potatoes make me sick, too. Maybe pesticides?
But that is really interesting and makes sense. I was getting shin splints terribly, despite D3 and calcium/magnesium supplements. Added K2 and I'm off all the grains, and I'm doing well, now. At 62, my bones are stronger. No more shin splints.

Ginger going wild

Thursday, November 07, 2013

This plant was started with a root that I bought at the store about five or more years ago. I got tired of having the ginger rotting in my fridge and decided to see what would happen if I planted it and now I have ginger anytime that I want and don't have to worry about running out. I have to transplant it but am waiting until the leaves on this plant to die and I will transplant it into a bigger pot and maybe even planting it into two pots. I already had to transplant some of it into a plant because it came apart from it and then gave the plant to my daughter to have and told her to just water it twice a week and when the leaves go brown the rest of the way then take the leaves out and recycle it for the garden. It makes a very good tea too and I put it along with my black tea and get the benefits from both of them. So if you are tired of having your ginger go bad, plant it in some good soil and then let it grow.,

Got this from one that is on one of my teams.

Asked by a Spark friend to copy and paste .....

We could all use these words of encouragement now and then.

Everyone will go through some hard times at some point. Life isn't easy.

Just something to think about... did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive?

Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated?

Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most?

Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and Help me.

Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile and see how much pain they may be in.

To all my friends who are going through some issues right now-- let's start an intention avalanche. We all need positive intentions right now. If I don't see your name, I'll understand.

May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares.

Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune.

    emoticon Sometimes we forget that as humans we all have struggles. Just because one struggle doesn't seem as bad as another does not mean it isn't just as much a struggle to the person experiencing it. A headache may be a small struggle to one and the greater struggle may be a cancerous brain tumor. But, we must remember, the person going through the struggle is "still" struggling. A true sign of compassion, I believe, is not to shrug off anyone's struggles, no matter how small they seem, it is still a struggle. May we have empathy and compassion equally to all.

Patent confirms that aspartame is the excrement of GM bacteria

Saturday, August 24, 2013

by Michael Ravensthorpe

(NaturalNews) In 1999, The Independent published an article entitled "World's top sweetener is made with GM bacteria," which revealed that Monsanto was knowingly adding aspartame to soft drinks in the United States - and that aspartame is made from GM bacteria. This report, which remains one of the earliest disclosures on aspartame in a mainstream newspaper, received little attention after its publication - possibly because its implications were underestimated at the time - and it has long been forgotten.

Since 1999, the world has become a little more attentive to Monsanto and aspartame, but ignorance still abounds about the latter's genesis. While more and more people are starting to awaken to aspartame's destructive effects on our health, do they know how it is actually made? Fortunately, a 1981 patent for aspartame production, once confined to the drawers of patent offices, is now available online for everyone to see - and it confirms everything that Monsanto was happy to tell us in 1999 before their meteoric growth necessitated greater prudence.

The production process
The patent, which is entitled Process for producing aspartame and is credited to Bahl, Rose, and White, summarizes the process as follows:

"The artificial sweetener aspartame, a dipeptide with the formula Asp-Phe-me, is produced using a cloned micrcorganism [sic]. A DNA which codes for a large stable peptide comprised of the repeating amino acid sequence (Asp-Phe)n is inserted into a cloning vehicle which in turn is introduced into a suitable host microorganism. The host microorganism is cultured and the large peptide containing the repeating Asp-Phe sequence is harvested therefrom. The free carboxyl group of the large peptide is benzylated and then hydrolysed to benzyl Asp-Phe dipeptides. This dipeptide is methylated and then debenzylated to form aspartame."

This scientific jargon obfuscates (perhaps deliberately) a truly disturbing process:

1.) 'Cloned microorganisms' (which the patent later reveals to be genetically modified E. coli) are cultivated in tanks whose environments are tailored to help them thrive.

2.) The well-fed E. coli cultures defecate the proteins that contain the aspartic acid-phenylalanine amino acid segment needed to make aspartame.

3.) The proteins containing the Asp-Phe segments are 'harvested' (i.e. lab assistants collect the bacteria's feces).

4.) The feces are then treated. This includes a process of methylation (adding an excess of the toxic alcohol, methanol, to the protected dipeptide).

While common sense dictates that this abomination doesn't belong anywhere near our bodies, the patent's authors made no secret about their belief that aspartame constitutes a safe and nutritious sweetener:

"Aspartame is not only sweeter than sucrose, but is preferable as a food to sucrose. While sucrose can provide the body with little more than energy, aspartame is composed of amino acids, the building blocks of body proteins, and like other proteins is broken down by the digestive enzymes in the stomach to its constituent amino acids thus providing nutritive value. [...] For these reasons, aspartame holds significant promise in replacing sugar as a sweetener."

So there we have it: An official document that not only reveals the shocking truth behind aspartame production, but also freely admits that it was intended for mass consumption as a sucrose substitute. Therefore, the next time someone claims that your reservations about this sweetener are unfounded, direct them to this patent - the truth behind aspartame is now in plain view.



So that means that every one that eats aspartame is eating crap!! Glad that I stopped eating that a long time ago. Gave me headaches and also made me hungry all the time.

    A large number, if not most, medicines are created through the use of bacteria. You could call the output urine, and make the same arguments for alcohol and bread - after all it's yeast waste that makes bread rise and turns sugar to alcohol. The FDA has approved this for sale. There are similar arguments against sucralose(splenda).
