Good thing to know.



This is an awesome piece of info! We buy fresh fruit but because we eat a little of each (Banana, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Grapes, Cantaloupe, Pineapple & Watermelon) every day the berries start to go bad quickly and end up in the garbage. Not anymore, thanks to this great tip. 

The key to preventing moldy berries...
Berries are delicious, but they're also kind of delicate. Raspberries in particular seem like they can mold before you even get them home from the market. There's nothing more tragic than paying $4 for a punnet of local raspberries, only to look in the fridge the next day and find that fuzzy mold growing on their insides. Well, with fresh berries just starting to hit farmers markets, we can tell you that how to keep them fresh! Here's a tip I'm sharing on how to prevent them from getting there in the first place: 


Wash them with vinegar.


When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider work best) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit, and voila! Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries go almost two weeks without getting moldy and soft. 

So go forth and stock up on those pricey little gems, knowing they'll stay fresh as long as it takes you to eat them. You're so berry welcome!

*My old boss's wife sent me this in an e-mail today and I thought I'd share.  I didn't know that!  How about you?


THIS REFLECTS THE FEELINGS OF A LOT OF PEOPLE.

 
I have never heard this said as simply or as well.

 *I received this in an e-mail and thought I'd share.

 
The folks who are getting the free stuff don't like 
The folks who are paying for the
 free stuff, because 
The folks who are paying for the
 free stuff   can no longer 
Afford to pay for both the 
free stuff and their own stuff.

 
And the folks who are paying for the free stuff                        
Want the 
free stuff  to stop.

 
And the folks who are getting the free stuff want even more      
Free stuff  on top of the free stuff they are already getting!

 
Now... The people who are forcing the people who pay 
For the
 free stuff have told the people who are RECEIVING 
The 
 free stuff that the people who are PAYING for the      
Free stuff are being mean, prejudiced, and racist.

 
So... The people who are GETTING the  free stuff  have been
Convinced they need to hate the people who are paying for the 
     
Free stuff by the people who are forcing some people to pay 
For their 
free stuff and giving them the free stuff in the first place.

 
We have let the free stuff giving go on for so long that there 
Are now more people getting
 free stuff  than paying for the free stuff.

 
Now understand this.

All great democracies have committed financial suicide somewhere
Between 200
 and 250 years after being founded.

The reason?

 
The voters figured out they could vote themselves money 
From the treasury by electing people who promised to give 
Them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them.

 
The United States officially became a Republic in  1776,  238 years ago.

 
The number of people now getting free stuff outnumber the people paying for the free stuff .

 
Failure to change that spells the end of the United States as we know it.

ELECTION      2016     IS COMING

 
A Nation of Sheep Breeds a Government of Wolves   !

 

Pass this on for all our sakes! 
     PLEASE Take a Stand!!!      

Obama         Gone!                       

Borders         Closed!                       
                
Culture         God, Constitution, and the Bill of Rights!                       

Drug Free       Mandatory Drug Screening before Welfare!                       

NO       freebies         to Non-Citizens!

The Blogger's Prayer

Lord help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.





Our Nation

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD." - Psalm 33:12
On our National Day of Prayer, then, we join together…to petition God to show us His mercy and His love, to heal our weariness and uphold our hope, that we might live ever mindful of His justice and thankful for His blessing.
-President Ronald Reagan (who signed a bill in 1988 making the first Thursday of May a National Day of Prayer)

What the Do Not Call List Can and Can’t Do!


What the Do Not Call List Can and Can’t Do!

By Nicholas Pell
What the “Do Not Call” List Can DoThe Do Not Call list isn’t as simple as people think it is. In the first place, it can take up to 31 days to take effect. In that time, you could keep getting lots of calls. Only after that 31-day window passes can you file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
In the meantime -- and contrary to what you might have read online -- you can register a mobile number on the Do Not Call list. The FTC makes no distinction between a mobile number and a landline, so if you’ve been suffering from those annoying, pre-recorded sales calls on your cell phone, suffer no more -- just sign up.
If you do keep getting calls after the 31-day grace period is over, you can then file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission. However, the problem is that it’s easy to “spoof” a phone number, making a call look like it’s coming from a different number than it really is. So if you report a number and it keeps calling you, it’s probably going to be easier to just block the number over and over than to keep making reports to the FTC. However, the FTC has successfully brought lawsuits against hundreds of companies for violating the Do Not Call list.

What the “Do Not Call” List Can’t DoBroad sectors of American society are not subject to the restrictions of the Do Not Call list. For example, if a non-profit is calling you, it’s because the list doesn’t apply to them. Unfortunately, most political organizations and charities are non-profits, so their calls will get through. Survey takers, profit-based or otherwise, can also call you on the phone. Companies you’ve done business with in the last year and a half can also call you, as can anyone you owe money to. You’re not going to be able to skip out on bill collectors by adding your name to the list.
If you do think a caller is violating the law, you can file a complaint in the same place you sign up for the list: at www.donotcall.gov.

HAPPY 4TH~~ NO MORE BUGS!!! WOO HOO



Found this on FB.  I truly wanted to save this one.  How about you?

As much as I enjoy summer BBQs, nothing has me running in faster than being attacked by mosquitoes. Lucky for me, I came across this non-toxic repellent which is not only effective, but looks AND smells pretty too!

Here's what you need:
  • 4 Mason Jars (you can also recycle jelly jars, etc)
  • 40 drops each – Cedarwood, Lavender, Lemon and Thieves essential oils (or use your own combination of oils but these are known to help to repel the buggies)
  • 2 fresh lemons
  • 2 fresh limes
  • 8 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • water
  • Floating tea light candles
And don't forget:
YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM




HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY
HAVE FUN AND BE SAFE!
