I got this from my friend Joe. His son is a retired Brigadiere General, who also happens to be a doctor and the chief of staff at the Omni Clinic in Nashville , Tenn. I went to one of his seminars, and the guy makes alot of sense.

Interesting! listen up folks,
There's better treatment out there than poison pills.
Everyone should move to Florida or Arizona and plant lemon trees...Useful info that may help someone .... LISTEN UP FOLKS: This is something that we should all take seriously – just had a recent test myself that sent shivers up my spine – or near by – Even doctors are now saying that there is value in trying “LEMON”So, a tablespoon of "real lemon" (the concentrate in a bottle) in a glass of water every morning. What can it hurt? Subject: A must-read- The surprising benefits of lemon!I remain perplexed!

This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer! Read carefully & you be the judge. Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say itis very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas ... The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells. Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C.

I was at the store this morning and I came across these cute Valentine Patterned Pocket Tissue Packets. I thought they would make great treats for my Seniors,and I know they would definitely be used. Then I saw the cute Puppy and Kitten Valentine's cards, and the polka dot basket, so I knew I had a project.

The Valentine's Day Cards came with a variety of stickers, so I used those to attach the cards to the tissue packets. I addressed all the cards to the folks I see regularly. I put the extra cards in the basket as well with a flower festooned pen so just in case I run across someone I may have missed, or I make a new friend, or just see someone in one of the facilities who needs to know that someone cares, I will have one for them.

It doesn't take much to brighten someones day and the little things count in a big way.


Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. ~Author Unknown



Despite my best efforts to complete all my Western New Year Traditions to ensure a Good 2012, things didn't turn out so well. The only business that was left undone through no fault of my own was being conned by a crooked auto mechanic, who not only stole my money but my vehicle as well.

Because of the bad mojo this fellow brought into my world, I totally blame him, for my freezer going out, and my cell phone continuously malfunctioning. As well as the new gray hairs that have appeared from the stress and aggravation of the 6 week ordeal with him that's going to drag on into months.

So I took the chance of a do-over with the 2012 Year of the Dragon Chinese Lunar New Year. I watched a youtube video by Cathay airlines about what Asians do in preparation for the Lunar New Year. So off to the Hong Kong Market I went. I bought a beautiful Yellow Mum Plant, I bought 3 Bahn Mi sandwiches, and a tiny red lantern that sticks to the window, and I wore red as from what the video said those are all "Good Luck" I forgot to lite incense but I did light a Holy Candle.

Anyway it seems to be working. I have embraced The Dragon. I enlisted the aide of many old and new friends and law enforcement agencies. I was able to get my vehicle back and what parts were left. My vehicle is now at another shop and I will be picking it up tomorrow.

So Thanks to the Dragon ,I wont be forced into a car note this year.

I filed suit against the Crooked Mechanic, and the wheels of justice move slowly, so I doubt that I will ever see the money returned, but at least I am not going to let him get away with it.

The other shop owners have banned together with the management of the industrial park and are having this guy evicted. I am sure he will just set up shop someplace else and con people.

There are 8 victims I have found so far. Most are female, and disabled or elderly.

I am working with an Investigative journalist who is going to document all this and publish it after the court case.

So hopefully I can at least warn others not to fall into the trap I did.

You may wonder how I found this guy to begin with. I asked friends who I have known for over 20 years to recommend a good mechanic. I trusted them when they bragged on how fabulous this guy was. Despite all the evidence presented they still believe their bar room buddies lies. I do feel betrayed by people I had considered friends.

The Dragon is giving me the strength to do what I have to do to , and I will have a Good New Year after all.

The Dogs Last Will and Testament Poem

A Dog’s Last Will And Testament

I really would love to know the author of this poem. I have Googled and searched to no avail. The following was the best information found:“A Dog’s Last Will and Testament,” (Author anonymous) included in a recently published book in Germany “Der Verlust eines Hundes,” (The Loss of a Dog) by Elli Radinger, translated by Janet Beasley.

“Before humans die, they write their last will and testament, give their home and all they have to those they leave behind.

If, with my paws, I could do the same,

this is what I would ask …

“To a poor and lonely stray, I’d give my happy home, my bowl, cozy bed and all my toys, the lap which I loved so much and the tender loving touch.

Also the hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice, which called my name.

I’d will to the sad, scared shelter animal, the place I had in my human’s loving heart of which their seemed no bounds.

So, when I die, please do not say,

‘I will never have a pet again, for the loss and the pain are more than I can stand.’

Instead, go find an unloved animal, one who’s life holds no hope or joy and give my place to him.

This is the only thing that I can give ... the love I left behind. This is my inheritance — my last will and testament.”

When I visited Seattle my husbands hometown for the first time. We did a Culinary Tour and visited Pike's Market. It was there that I fell in love with the The Truffle. Its romantic that my husband remembered these little things and all his gifts reminded me of our Travels and adventures. I hope we have many more.

Our Le Creuset family is growing. I got my husband the round dutch oven for Christmas this year and he got me the whistling teapot. The pots are very heavy so they live displayed on the stove top. The cheery red color always makes me happy when I walk into the kitchen. Nothing cooks as well as these pots. There is something magic in them , food takes on a life of its own and reaches culinary perfection when cooked in them.
