    I adore cinnamon :) It goes with so much even savoury in small amounts. Now I don't like it enough to attempt the cinnamon challenge - I like to be able to breath haha!

    This is good information. Cinnamon can be pretty expensive or non existent at the local grocery. I get mine from a local health food store like Whole foods without the big commercial store. Raisin Rack had Cinnamon and many other herbs in bulk so I can buy as much or little as I choose. That way I get just what I need and don't have to worry about my herbs and spices going stale. Check out your neighborhood for a similar shop.

What a Relief to Learn This...

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind only to completely forget what that purpose was?

Turns out that doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.

Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts & memories from the next.

Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room & prepares a blank slate for the new locale.

It's not's the stupid door! emoticon

Thank goodness for studies like this. emoticon

    Explains why I go back to where I came from to remind myself what I was going to do before going through the door.

Cinnamon Mocha Coffee Recipe

Friday, October 05, 2012

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I normally do not choose to drink any of my allotted daily calories; however, for an occasional Winter day treat this sounds quite tasty, don't you know? emoticon

For years I have enjoyed coffee prepared with the ground cinnamon - as suggested in step one.

    I throw a cinnamon stick into the basket of coffee grounds before I perk it. Brie and I met by chance because she was wandering around town at 1 am in search of cinnamon coffee!

    I seldom indulge in a "cuppa" coffee now-a-days (much preferring a hot “cuppa” herbal tea) & I certainly do not care for bitter tasting coffee; however, when a coffee is made right it can really hit that proverbial "spot" for this gal.

I, too, enjoy the smell of coffee as it percolates & one of my all time favorite smells is the delicious aroma that arises from a freshly opened can or jar of coffee.

I find bittersweet pleasure in traveling back over the years in memory - to awakening to the wonderful smell of fresh coffee when we visited my precious in-laws' home.

God bless!

    I do not care for the taste of coffee BUT I do love the smell of coffee. Cinnamon is also a flavor that I really like, so I imagine this would smell wonderful! lol

Very informative MUST READ & take note!

Friday, April 06, 2012

The following message was forwarded to me by my cherished Mom & now I am asking you to please make it your practice to ask for a "thyroid guard" when having dental x-rays & mammograms.

Actually, it would be a good idea to enquire if a facility has thyroid guards before scheduling your appointment. If the use of a thyroid guard is not on offer, then don’t use that facility & follow up with a note to your insurance company & the director of the facility as to why you chose to go elsewhere.

May you be blessed with this information!


----- Begin forwarded message -----

On Wednesday, Dr. Oz had a show on the fastest growing cancer in women, thyroid cancer. It was a very interesting program and he mentioned that the increase could possibly be related to the use of dental x-rays and mammograms. He demonstrated that on the apron the dentist puts on you for your dental x-rays there is a little flap that can be lifted up and wrapped around your neck. Many dentists don't bother to use it. Also, there is something called a "thyroid guard" for use during mammograms.

By coincidence, I had my yearly mammogram yesterday. I felt a little silly, but I asked about the guard and sure enough, the technician had one in a drawer. I asked why it wasn't routinely used. Answer: "I don't know. You have to ask for it." Well, if I hadn't seen the show, how would I have known to ask?

We need to pass this on to our daughters, nieces, mothers and all our female friends and husbands tell your wives! Someone was nice enough to forward this to me. I hope you pass this on to your friends and family.
