We all have them...but most people get defensive when they are taken out of their comfort zone.

I was told that I should not talk about things that I am uneducated about. Yet that person had ABSOLUTELY NO EDUCATION HERSELF ON THE TOPIC!! I was told not to share my opinion...mainly because it was different from the norm. I find it so sad that people cannot discuss issues with educated thoughts. In fact, the answer most people give when in the heat of the talk??? "Well my doctor says.....or I have friends that are health care practitioners and they say.....or my favorite one, the government (CDC) says it is okay.......HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA
Really??? That is how you are basing you decisions????
Not once do these people say "I studied this..so that is why I feel this way". They all take the word of someone else. Yet they remain sick, with one illness or another and don't know why.
DUH!! Try stepping away from the herd, and stop being a sheep!!! Educate yourself on things you don't know about. Don't take my word for it, or your doctors, or especially not the governments!!! Get informed! Look to see why the other side feels a certain why...perhaps they have some bases for their opinions???? If conventional/Western methods are so great and wonderful why is EVERY illness and disease increasing in population EVERY year. And at a fast rate.

The maturity levels that people display is amazing. It seems their composure and intelligence get thrown out the window as soon as they are forced to step outside of the box...and instead enters the 15yr old high-schooler...with nothing but yelling and insults. So so sad...
As they say, ignorance is bliss....

I am really amazed at the Media/Big-Pharma's job on this H1N1 issue. They have really done a good job. They have peaked everyone's interest, and used their typical scare tactics.

Here are some little known FACTS:

What is inside the regular flu vaccine;

*Egg proteins, including avian contaminant viruses
*Gelatin, known to cause allergic reactions & anaphylaxis are usually associated with sensitivity to egg or gelatin
*Polysorbate 80 (Tween80™), which can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis
*Formaldehyde: a known carcinogen
*Triton X100: a strong detergent
*Sucrose (table sugar)
*Resin, known to cause allergic reactions
*Gentamycin, an antibiotic
*Thimerosal: mercury is still in multidose vials

Did you know:

*Doctor visits for flu are down from the level in April

*Total flu hospitalizations are similar or lower than for seasonal flu (yearly flu)

*The number of death secondary to flu and pneumonia is unchanged from yearly rate

*Only two states are reporting widespread infections -- Georgia and Alaska. Other states report only regional or sporadic activity, meaning it’s not very contagious.

*There is no evidence that the virus has mutated at all anywhere in the world

*The virus remains susceptible to the drugs Tamiflu and Relenza.

*Only 43,771 cases have been reported in the United States. Because of poor reporting, the CDC estimates that true numbers indicate that one million have been infected. Many people did not get sick enough to go to a doctor. Likewise, not all people are tested who go to a doctor.
Of these 5,011 have been hospitalized and 302 have died.

Death Rates From the H1N1 Flu
*If we use the 43,771 figure and 302 deaths that means the death rate is 0.6 percent, an extremely low death rate for any flu.
*The percentage of hospitalized patients who died was 6 percent, again a very low incidence of death.
*Since the CDC estimates that one million have been infected, we must recalculate death rates. Using this more accurate figure, the death rate is in truth 0.03 percent, which means 99.97percent will not die from this flu. Your chances of dying are incredibly low.

Let me add that the .03 percent that have died from the H1N1 have an immune suppressing disorder or chronic illness, or other health issue.

What are the Virologists Saying?
Virologists are scientists who study viruses -- their classification, their genetics, methods of spread and their ability to cause disease. No one knows more about this virus than the virologists.
The British science magazine, The New Scientist, recently polled 60 virologists to get their opinion. These are the results of specific questions:

Will the virulent version of the virus appear?
Extremely likely-----------------none
A 50/50 chance----------------- 14
Possible-------------------------- 38
Not at all--------------------------3

What the virologists are doing personally
Stock Tamiflu or Relinza-----------------14
Stock above plus antibiotics------------- 6
Stock food, water and power source----5
Get pneumococcal vaccine---------------3
Nothing------------------------------------ 30
Hand washing, mask, etc--------------- 3

Notice there was no mention of taking the swine flu vaccine.

Behind the push to vaccinate the entire population are the pharmaceutical makers of the vaccines, who are working in conjunction with the government to make the vaccine mandatory.
Homeland security and FEMA are pushing for forced vaccinations and the medical experts, virologists and epidemiologists are calling for calm and resorting to voluntary vaccination only. The former have links with the vaccine manufacturers via political contacts. A great deal of money will be made by the manufacturers, should forced vaccinations be mandated.

In addition this vaccine is not being tested the way it is suppose to be tested!
This will result in a repeat of the 1976 Swine Flu disaster. More people were paralyzed with Guillain Barre disorder or died then there were actual deaths from the swine flu....

It is also important to appreciate that this vaccine has been fast-tracked, meaning that many of the usual safety precautions used to prevent contamination of the vaccines will be overlooked by the regulatory agencies.
According to a number of studies, vaccine contamination is widespread, with vaccines containing pestivirus, mycoplasma, viral fragments, DNA fragments and bacterial components, all of which can produce chronic systemic disorders, cancer, neurologic diseases and even slow brain degeneration.

A lot of this information is from Dr. Russell Blaylock and Dr. Mercola...

SOOOO what should you do???


It is recommended:
*Vitamin C 2000mg daily
*Vitamin D 2000mg daily
*Oscilliococcinum homeopathic remedy for flu (take one dose a week for prevention, full dose if you think you are coming down with the flu)

*Stay away from large amounts of dairy and sugar
Basic hand washing

It is helpful to keep all this in your home from October to February...

Kids say the darnest things!

So my dear "angel" Hannah put me in a bit of a embarrassing moment twice this week over her comments about other people...out loud...in ear shot of those people....

Moment #1 Walking at the mall behind a couple of women. One of the women had a particularly um..well...quite large behind. In case I did not see it, Hannah was sure to point it out to me...out loud. "Mom, why is that lady's butt so big and fat." Ugh......I know the woman heard her...and I cowardly snuck in the first store we past....unfortunately it was the disgusting store Acbercrombie...I still have a headache from that.

Moment #2 Walking through Target and we pass a man who was quite large. Hannah who normally goes on warp speed through stores, ssssllllloooooowwwwwssss down as she passes him and says "Mom, why is that man so fat". Ahhhhhhh...okay quickly down the next aisle I go...though it was the pet aisle, and I don't have pets. Unless of course you count my children, which on many days I do. I do have Charles and Oliver, our Caterpillars who are now in their cocoons, but I don't think that counts either.

So I hushed her and said don't say those things. They hurt people's feelings...and I am quite sure that both the woman with the large derriere, and the man who looked like...well...fat...already know of their physical issues.

But kids are curious and they always state the obvious. I myself have been victim to her true remarks. Mom, why do you have bumps all over your belly and butt. Ahhh...thank you for pointing out my cellulite and stretch marks...I almost forgot about them.
And it isn't like she is making up stories or telling lies...these "statements" of hers are true...no matter how much I cringe when I hear her say those things.

So I guess for now I hope that she keeps her thoughts to herself or at least at a whisper...but until then, I suppose I better get creative with the aisles or stores I suddenly feel the need to enter.

Feeling Tipsy??

Can someone please explain tipping to me?? I mean I guess I understand tipping a waitress or waiter...perhaps even my stylist or the lady who does my nails; I believe those people make little to nothing so they rely on tips...which is fine because it makes them do their job well, or not get a tip, but where does it end??
I had my couches cleaned a few weeks ago and was getting a check ready to leave with my husband so he can pay them. I then said, "crap, I don't have enough cash to tip them" and in turn he looked at me and asked why in the heck we had to tip them. Good point. Why do I have to tip them?? Don't they get paid to do that?
Why do certain professions expect a tip and others don't??
How about we start tipping our teachers? If you educate my son/daughter and get him enthused with learning...here's a tip.
Or our doctors?? Hey you found that weird looking mole before I did...here's a tip.

Why do places like Starbucks (sorry Rachel) have little jars on the counter looking for tips?? Don't you get paid to make my Cafe Mocha (no whipped cream please). And if the pay sucks, isn't that suppose to motivate you to educate yourself and get a job where you aren't making mochachocafrappmachiato's??
I saw a tip jar at Subway!! What??? I came in there to buy a sandwich (actually I hate Subway, I was just buying a gift card for someone...but anywho) and now I have to give you more money to say, gee, thanks for making me a sandwich??
I was helping a friend move and we were following the moving truck to her new home, she said that she needed to stop by the bank to get cash so she can tip the movers. Why I asked? She responded with a "To thank them for doing a good job and not damaging anything"...WHAT?? but isn't that what they are suppose to do?????? Are they "don't always get the job done movers" or "will do a great job as long as we get a tip movers"???
How come I don't get a tip??? I am helping you with your health...and if I make you feel better, shouldn't I get an little somethin-somethin?? I mean I know you already paid me for the treatment, but really that was clearly just a "base-pay", now I need more.

Here's a tip....don't 'tip!

Stop the pink fest....

Okay I will warn you now readers....this may hit a nerve for a few of you and may even piss you off but I write what I feel.
Lately I've been getting a few requests to be part of some sort of fundraiser/walk/cryfest for breast cancer. I want no part of it!!!
Let me begin by saying NO ONE deserves to go through the pain, suffering, anxiety, fright, etc, of cancer or other diseases. My feelings in no way minimize what those people are going through, nor does it mean that those who participate in these fundraisers/walks are wasting their time...but............
Do you really think that by taking a walk for a few miles and wearing pink is going to all of a sudden "beat" the cancer?????? That your $1000 or whatever amount donation is going to all off a sudden motivate scientists to "find" the cure????
Let's start there...
Do you really think we don't have a "cure" for cancer?? Of all the brilliant minds in the last, oh say 25 yrs, no one has found anything to deal with this issue? Think about it people....think of the trillions, not millions, but trillions, that the United States would lose if there was to be a "cure". The million dollar machines, scanners, speciality clinics, doctors, and please let us not forget the pharmaceuticals. These would all be gone...along with the profits.

This whole "together we can find a cure"....really?? Let's me use a metaphor that may seem silly but let's go for it....
We are all over at someones home. Suddenly I realize that I lost my keys....hmmm....let me look on the couch that I am sitting on...nope don't see it....a friend comes by, "hey, what is the matter.....oh I lost my keys....gee, let me help you look for them" So now we are both looking on the couch. After a few minutes go by...a few more friends come over...."what's the matter?....oh we are looking for some keys........we'll all help....." Now I have twenty people looking for my keys on the couch. Yet no luck.....ALL OF A SUDDEN....some brilliant voice says..."hey, maybe you lost it somewhere else...maybe the keys are not on the couch....." So we all look elsewhere and in five minutes we find the keys in a different room, and no where near the couch.

Okay so did that make sense??? I guess my point is, if for the last 25 plus years, we are donating money to research drugs for a cure for cancer, perhaps we should be doing the research somewhere else?? Perhaps the answer is not a pharmaceutical??? Perhaps the answer is in a different room and not on the couch. All that money you raised is just bringing more people to look at the couch.

This is not to say that pharmaceuticals/surgeries/chemotherapy's don't have a place in our conventional way of thinking towards cancer, but perhaps if their is still no "cure" even when we have these "great" things, perhaps we should look at more unconventional ways??
Did you know that when a cancer or "sick" cell is exposed to full oxygen, it either reverts back to a healthy cell or the cancer disappears???? How come we never hear about that?? How come that money can't go to oxygen research??

If a group of people want to get together and go for a walk and wear pink boa's, well, go ahead...have a blast....but please please please....don't be under the notion that you are making a difference....because you aren't. You are supporting yourself, a family member, a friend etc....but you are not changing the outlook of the disease.
This is the same for the whole "wear red", and now we have made a difference for women and cardiovascular health....really?? I wear red all the time...I don't think anything has changed.

So please don't bother writing me on how I am heartless...or a bitch or whatever...instead...write to the Susan Komen association or another one of those types and find out where your money is really going...
