Sitting her e listening to Connie Francis greatest hits.. humming along..
that woman had a set of pipes!! Concetta Rosemarie Franconero! Compared to any female vocalist today, she is lame`, they are burlap!!

I enjoy discovering old and new things, researching the five W's and enjoying the journey !!
Hers is the ultimate,, kind of like the Beatles and Sinatra combined.. one person did all of that,.. millions upon millions of albums worldwide.. multiple languages!!
okay, had to jot that.. so proud of her..

    You just gave me a good idea for some new music! I've been listening to Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald for weeks. I'll have to get some Connie Francis. Thanks for the idea1

Connie is my favourite female vocalist next to Anne Murray (have to stay true to Canada you know). Such innocent times when she was a huge hit, wish we could get some of that innocence and trust back so our kids could enjoy it.

Tuesday's Thought

Taken from Onehealthynut.com

Original Strep throat remedy recipe that works!

1T pure honey
1/4t cayenne pepper
4 cloves garlic,pressed .

Those are the proportions, but you'll need more than that, so take 4T honey, 1t cayenne pepper,16 cloves garlic, pressed. Mix together. Take 1/2t to 1t of formula every 30-60 minutes.
Don't wash it down-- let the honey coat the throat, then the cayenne, being a rubefacient, will bring the blood into the area, then your immune system will be stimulated with the garlic. Garlic is an anti-bacterial,anti-fungal, and anti-viral, so anything that may be causing the sore throat, the garlic, along with the cayenne and the honey coating the areas, will take care of the problem.

How long does it take to get over strep throat with the standard medical procedure? Ten days. This herbal remedy will generally get over strep throat in 24 hours.
Disclaimer:
Take what you like and leave the rest.

I am just posting this for anybody who wishes to try it.. I am not a doctor or chemist.

Colder Monday

Monday, January 07, 2013

It seems like a lot of sparkers are in the throes of, or recovering from flu, or some stomach virus(flu is respiratory). Yesterday I came across a recipe from sparker sherrylyn that is simple and homeopathic, for strep throat treatment.. in 24 hours. It is supposed to get rid of it in one day if you follow instructions.

It has three ingredients, cayenne pepper, honey, and crushed garlic. You swallow a teaspoon every 30-60 minutes for 24 hours and the strep throat is gone!
If and when I ever get the symptoms, I will try this.. anybody wants the recipe, let me know.. she had he link on her blog on yesterdays message board. obviously, we are not doctors, But each ingredient has the healing properties for such a thing.. take what you liked and leave the rest...

    Dunno about the honey (which I love, but which my blood glucose doesn't!) but I'm a real believer in the capsicum (sp?) in cayenne and ...whatever... is in garlic. Sometimes I think you can't beat natural cures for what ails ya!

    Yep, I did the PB route too - makes 'em work at it till the trap springs. A couple years ago I was helping my mother set some traps in her basement. Before I baited and set them, I tied a long piece of string to each one. "What's that for?" she asked. "Because I refuse to touch the things once there's a dead mouse in them. I will pick them up by the string and throw them out." "But then we have to buy new traps!" [This from the woman who refused to touch the traps at all if they caught anything.]

"Ma, they're 89 cents apiece - I'll go to the hardware store and replace any traps I throw out!"

Worked a treat, lol...

SATURDAY

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I got up early, put a half turkey in the large crockpot, paid a few of mom's bills and am waiting for the beauty academy to open so I can try to squeeze in there today for a haircut.

This week begins the long, cold, drab wait for warm weather.. Unless you live in it your entire life, it does not mean much to say it is boring, hard work, and S.....L....O........W..........
Checking off he days until Paradise, MIchigan!!

    It does seem like time to hibernate. I like to work on my firewood this time of year - no black flies, no mud, and no sweating (unless I dress too warm like today).

At least we're past the solstice, and the days are getting longer again.
