    Margi Starr Springfield, Ohio, USA Posted: 2016-12-07 Napoleon Hill gives a listing of men with outstanding achievements in this chapter.  George Washington, Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson, ...   “The genius which was theirs undoubtedly found its source of power in transmuted sex energy.”   I’ve always skipped over the names I didn’t recognize, but this time, I did a little research.  What a surprise for me to read about John H. Patterson.   John H. Patterson (1844-1922) was born in Dayton, Ohio, less than 45 minutes from where I live.    He spent his childhood working on the family farm and sawmills. He graduated from Dartmouth College and went to work as a canal toll collector until 1870.   (From Dartmouth College graduate to toll collector. I wonder which one gave him his most valuable education.)   At 28 years old, he began managing the Southern Ohio Coal & Iron Company.  He became an investor in a manufacturing company 12 years later and with his brother at the age of 40, formed the National Cash Register Company.   Incredible!  As a young child I lived in Dayton.  Everyone talked about NCR.  It was THE place to work.   NCR had the first “daylight factory” buildings with windows that let in light and fresh air.  Prior to this, factories were more like sweatshops. The Dayton campus had spacious lawns and landscaping, and even artwork.    Patterson established the world’s first sales training school at the NCR factory campus.  He also coined a phrase for his service division, which, until the company was bought by AT&T, hung on the wall of every service department in the company.    “We Cannot Afford to Have a Single Dissatisfied Customer.”   Patterson was famous for firing Thomas Watson, Sr, who went on to become the President of CTR (Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company) later renamed IBM. So many prominent businessmen were trained and fired by Patterson that some regarded experience at NCR as the rough equivalent of an MBA degree.   (Doesn’t this remind you of Donald Trump saying, “You’re fired” on his popular TV show “The Apprentice?”   Patterson and his crony Watson were sentenced to one year imprisonment for unfair business practices, but that was later overturned by appeal.  They were both pardoned by President Woodrow Wilson as a result of their leadership and rescue efforts during the Great Dayton Flood of 1913.  John H. Patterson led the recovery efforts, which included organizing rescue teams to save the thousands of people stranded on rooftops and the upper stories of buildings.   Patterson was a health fanatic and whenever he adopted a new health regimen, he required the same of all his executives and employees.   His nephew, Lt Frank Patterson, was killed in 1918 when his military aircraft crashed near Dayton, Ohio.  Wright-Patterson Air Force Base would be named in his memory.    WPAFB is still a thriving Air Force Base and a vital part of Miami Valley area.   A generous philanthropist, Patterson, did not leave behind a fortune. Believing that “shrouds have no pockets,” he gave his millions to the social programs at his company.   It is believed that from 1910-1930, one-sixth of the United State business executives were former NCR executives.   Now I understand why Napoleon Hill included John H Patterson in this list.  He learned the secret of Emotional Energy and by doing so, he influenced a generation of leaders.  His legacy lives on to this day.   Margi "Shining" Starr

    Did you know the saying "God willing and the Creek don't rise" was in reference to the Creek Indians and not a body of water? It was written by Benjamin Hawkins in the late 18th century. He was a politician and Indian diplomat. While in the south, Hawkins was requested by the President of the U.S. to return to Washington . In his response, he was said to write, "God willing and the Creek don't rise." Because he capitalized the word "Creek" it is deduced that he was referring to the Creek Indian tribe and not a body of water. ********************************* In George Washington's days, there were no cameras. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not based on how many people were to be painted, but by how many limbs were to be painted. Arms and legs are 'limbs,' therefore painting them would cost the buyer more. Hence the expression, 'Okay, but it'll cost you an arm and a leg.' (Artists know hands and arms are more difficult to paint) ******************************As incredible as it sounds, men and women took baths only twice a year (May and October) Women kept their hair covered, while men shaved their heads (because of lice and bugs) and wore wigs. Wealthy men could afford good wigs made from wool. They couldn't wash the wigs, so to clean them they would carve out a loaf of bread, put the wig in the shell, and bake it for 30 minutes. The heat would make the wig big and fluffy, hence the term 'big wig... ' Today we often use the term 'here comes the Big Wig' because someone appears to be or is powerful and wealthy. *********************************In the late 1700's, many houses consisted of a large room with only one chair. Commonly, a long wide board folded down from the wall, and was used for dining. The 'head of the household' always sat in the chair while everyone else ate sitting on the floor. Occasionally a guest, who was usually a man, would be invited to sit in this chair during a meal.. To sit in the chair meant you were important and in charge. They called the one sitting in the chair the 'chair man.' Today in business, we use the expression or title 'Chairman' or 'Chairman of the Board.' *********************************Personal hygiene left much room for improvement.. As a result, many women and men had developed acne scars by adulthood. The women would spread bee's wax over their facial skin to smooth out their complexions. When they were speaking to each other, if a woman began to stare at another woman's face she was told, 'mind your own bee's wax.' Should the woman smile, the wax would crack, hence the term 'crack a smile'. In addition, when they sat too close to the fire, the wax would melt . .. . Therefore, the expression 'losing face.' *********************************Ladies wore corsets, which would lace up in the front. A proper and dignified woman, as in 'straight laced' wore a tightly tied lace.. *********************************Common entertainment included playing cards. However, there was a tax levied when purchasing playing cards but only applicable to the 'Ace of Spades...' To avoid paying the tax, people would purchase 51 cards instead. Yet, since most games require 52 cards, these people were thought to be stupid or dumb because they weren't 'playing with a full deck..' ********************************Early politicians required feedback from the public to determine what the people considered important. Since there were no telephones, TV's or radios, the politicians sent their assistants to local taverns, pubs, and bars. They were told to 'go sip some Ale and listen to people's conversations and political concerns. Many assistants were dispatched at different times. 'You go sip here' and 'You go sip there.' The two words 'go sip' were eventually combined when referring to the local opinion and, thus we have the term 'gossip.' **********************************At local taverns, pubs, and bars, people drank from pint and quart-sized containers. A bar maid's job was to keep an eye on the customers and keep the drinks coming. She had to pay close attention and remember who was drinking in 'pints' and who was drinking in 'quarts,' hence the phrase 'minding your 'P's and Q's'.**********************************One more: bet you didn't know this!In the heyday of sailing ships, all war ships and many freighters carried iron cannons. Those cannons fired round iron cannon balls. It was necessary to keep a good supply near the cannon. However, how to prevent them from rolling about the deck? The best storage method devised was a square-based pyramid with one ball on top, resting on four resting on nine, which rested on sixteen. Thus, a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon. There was only one problem....how to prevent the bottom layer from sliding or rolling from under the others. The solution was a metal plate called a 'Monkey' with 16 round indentations. However, if this plate were made of iron, the iron balls would quickly rust to it. The solution to the rusting problem was to make 'Brass Monkeys.' Few landlubbers realize that brass contracts much more and much faster than iron when chilled.. Consequently, when the temperature dropped too far, the brass indentations would shrink so much that the iron cannonballs would come right off the monkey; Thus, it was quite literally, 'Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.' (All this time, you thought that was an improper expression, didn't you.)

    All we need is love  My grandparents were married for over half a century, and played their own special game from the time they had met each other. The goal of their game was to write the word "SHMILY" in a surprise place for the other to find.      They took turns leaving "SHMILY" around the house, and as soon as one of them discovered it, it was their turn to hide it once more. They dragged "SHMILY" with their fingers through the sugar and flour containers to await whoever was preparing the next meal. They smeared it in the dew on the windows overlooking the patio where my grandma always fed us warm, homemade pudding with blue food coloring. "SHMILY" was written in the steam left on the mirror after a hot shower, where it would reappear bath after bath.      At one point, my grandmother even unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper to leave "SHMILY" on the very last sheet. There was no end to the places "SHMILY" would pop up. Little notes with "SHMILY" scribbled hurriedly were found on dashboards and car seats, or taped to steering wheels. The notes were stuffed inside shoes and left under pillows. "SHMILY" was written in the dust upon the mantel and traced in the ashes of the fireplace.      This mysterious word was as much a part of my grandparents' house as the furniture. It took me a long time before I was able to fully appreciate my grandparent's game. Skepticism has kept me from believing in true love - one that is pure and enduring. However, I never doubted my grandparents' relationship. They had love down pat. It was more than their flirtatious little games; it was a way of life.      Their relationship was based on a devotion and passionate affection which not everyone is lucky enough to experience. Grandma and Grandpa held hands every chance they could. They stole kisses as they bumped into each other in their tiny kitchen. They finished each other's sentences and shared the daily crossword puzzle and word jumble. My grandma whispered to me about how cute my grandpa was, how handsome an old man he had grown to be. She claimed that she really knew "how to pick 'em." Before every meal they bowed heads and gave thanks, marveling at their blessings: a wonderful family, good fortune, and each other.      But there was a dark cloud in my grandparents' life: my grandmother had breast cancer. The disease had first appeared 10 years earlier. As always, Grandpa was with her every step of the way. He comforted her in their yellow room, painted that color so she could always be surrounded by sunshine, even when she was too sick to go outside. Now the cancer was once again attacking her body. With the help of a cane and my grandfather's steady hand, they still went to church every Sunday morning. But my grandmother grew steadily weaker until, finally, she could not leave the house anymore.      For a while, Grandpa would go to church alone, praying to God to watch over his wife. Then one day, what we all dreaded finally happened. Grandma was gone. "SHMILY." It was scrawled in yellow on the pink ribbons of my grandmother's funeral bouquet.      As the crowd thinned and the last mourners turned to leave, my aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family members came forward and gathered around Grandma one last time. Grandpa stepped up to my grandmother's casket and, taking a shaky breath, he began to sing to her. Through his tears and grief, the song came, a deep and throaty lullaby. Shaking with my own sorrow, I will never forget that moment. For I knew then that, although I couldn't begin to fathom the depth of their love, I had been privileged to witness its unmatched beauty. S-H-M-I-L-Y: See How Much I Love You.

    November 17th, 1884 -- Texas cattlemen propose National Trail On this day in 1884, a cattle industry convention meeting in St. Louis passed a resolution calling upon Congress, "in the interest of cheaper food," to build and maintain a National Trail from the Red River north to the Canadian border. Pushed through by prominent Texas cattlemen, it was an attempt to thwart proposed northern quarantines against Texas cattle. Texas fever, caused by ticks indigenous to the Southwest, had inflicted heavy losses upon the northern range-cattle industry by the early 1880s, and these losses had caused northern cattlemen to lobby for quarantines against infected livestock. Since it was much less expensive for Texas cattlemen to trail their herds to northern railheads and ranges and then ship them by rail rather than ship directly from Texas, most Texans saw these proposed quarantines as a threat to their economic well-being. In the wake of the National Trail proposal, however, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Canada passed quarantine laws against Texas cattle, seriously restricting drives during the regular trailing season. Finally, on January 7, 1886, Texas congressman James Francis Miller of Gonzales introduced the National Trail proposal in the United States House of Representatives. The measure was blocked in the House committee on commerce by northern cattle interests and by Texas railroads, which presumably wanted to replace the trail with rails. The failure of the National Trail, the northern quarantines, and the western migration of farmers and barbed wire sounded the death knell of trailing. Additional info about the end of the Texas Cattle Trails  November 17th, 1884 -- Tick fever helps end cattle-trailing era despite ranchers' efforts On this date in 1884, a prominent group of Texas cattlemen met in St. Louis to attempt to thwart plans of northern interests to quarantine Texas cattle. Texas fever, caused by ticks indigenous to the Southwest, had inflicted heavy losses upon the northern range-cattle industry by the early 1880s, and these losses had caused northern cattlemen (roughly all those north of the thirty-second parallel) to lobby for state and territorial quarantines against infected livestock. The Texans at the St. Louis meeting sought to evade this quarantine by drafting a resolution calling for Congress to build and maintain a National Trail from Doan's Crossing on the Red River through Indian Territory, Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Montana. On January 6, 1886, Texas congressman James Francis Miller introduced the National Trail proposal to the U.S. House of Representatives. The measure failed, and northern quarantines, western migration, and barbed wire fences ended cattle trailing.

    I believe we should be aware of the importance of staying hydrated. 10 years ago I found myself in hospital with severe dehydration and it was an experience I do not wish to go through again so when I spotted this article from Chad Tackett I thought it would be good to share for everyone's benefit. Chad Tackett has a BS degree in exercise science & nutrition from Oregon State University (1994) and is certified as a Personal Trainer & Weight Management Specialist by the American Council on Exercise (ACE   Here is what Chad writes: We all know we’re supposed to drink more water. Not only for effective fat loss, but good health in general.   Drinking 80 oz. of water or more a day can seem like a daunting task, but here's the catch…   You don't have to drink all that water. Roughly 20% of our daily water intake comes from foods, particularly fruits and vegetables.   Below are the top 15 Hydrating Foods, all of which are at least 90% water by weight!   I hope you find this helpful!   Chad   Cucumber Water content: 96.7% This summer veggie—which has the highest water content of any solid food—is perfect in salads, or sliced up and served with some hummus, says Keri Gans, RD, author of The Small Change Diet: 10 Steps to a Thinner and Healthier You and a consultant to Mindbloom, a technology company that makes life-improvement apps.   Want to pump up cucumber's hydrating power even more? Try blending it with nonfat yogurt, mint, and ice cubes to make cucumber soup. "Soup is always hydrating, but you may not want to eat something hot in the summertime,” Gans says. "Chilled cucumber soup, on the other hand, is so refreshing and delicious any time of year."   Iceberg lettuce Water content: 95.6% Iceberg lettuce tends to get a bad rap, nutrition-wise. Health experts often recommend shunning it in favor of darker greens like spinach or romaine lettuce, which contain higher amounts of fiber and nutrients such as folate and vitamin K. It's a different story when it comes to water content, though: Crispy iceberg has the highest of any lettuce, followed by butterhead, green leaf, and romaine varieties.   So when the temperature rises, pile iceberg onto sandwiches or use it as a bed for a healthy chicken salad. Even better: Ditch the tortillas and hamburger buns and use iceberg leaves as a wrap for tacos and burgers.   Celery Water content: 95.4% That urban legend about celery having negative calories isn't quite true, but it's pretty close. Like all foods that are high in water, celery has very few calories—just 6 calories per stalk. And its one-two punch of fiber and water helps to fill you up and curb your appetite.   This lightweight veggie isn't short on nutrition, however. Celery contains folate and vitamins A, C, and K. And thanks in part to its high water content, celery neutralizes stomach acid and is often recommended as a natural remedy for heartburn and acid reflux.   Radishes Water content: 95.3% These refreshing root vegetables should be a fixture in your spring and summer salads. They provide a burst of spicy-sweet flavor—and color!—in a small package, and more importantly they're filled with antioxidants such as catechin (also found in green tea).   A crunchy texture also makes radishes a perfect addition to healthy summer coleslaw—no mayo required. Slice them up with shredded cabbage and carrots, sliced snow peas, and chopped hazelnuts and parsley, and toss with poppy seeds, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.   Tomatoes Water content: 94.5% Sliced and diced tomatoes will always be a mainstay of salads, sauces, and sandwiches, but don't forget about sweet cherry and grape varieties, which make an excellent hydrating snack, Gans says. "They're great to just pop in your mouth, maybe with some nuts or some low-sodium cheese," she says. "You get this great explosion of flavor when you bite into them."   Having friends over? Skewer grape tomatoes, basil leaves, and small chunks of mozzarella on toothpicks for a quick and easy appetizer.   Green peppers Water content: 93.9% Bell peppers of all shades have a high water content, but green peppers lead the pack, just edging out the red and yellow varieties (which are about 92% water). And contrary to popular belief, green peppers contain just as many antioxidants as their slightly sweeter siblings.   Peppers are a great pre-dinner or late-night snack, Gans says. "We tell people to munch on veggies when they have a craving, but a lot of people get bored of carrots and celery pretty quickly," she says. "Peppers are great to slice up when you get home from work, while you're making or waiting for dinner."   Cauliflower Water content: 92.1% Don't let cauliflower's pale complexion fool you: In addition to having lots of water, these unassuming florets are packed with vitamins and phytonutrients that have been shown to help lower cholesterol and fight cancer, including breast cancer. (A 2012 study of breast cancer patients by Vanderbilt University researchers found that eating cruciferous veggies like cauliflower was associated with a lower risk of dying from the disease or seeing a recurrence.)   "Break them up and add them to a salad for a satisfying crunch,” Gans suggests. "You can even skip the croutons!"   Watermelon Water content: 91.5% water It's fairly obvious that watermelon is full of, well, water, but this juicy melon is also among the richest sources of lycopene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant found in red fruits and vegetables. In fact, watermelon contains more lycopene than raw tomatoes—about 12 milligrams per wedge, versus 3 milligrams per medium-sized tomato.   Although this melon is plenty hydrating on its own, Gans loves to mix it with water in the summertime. "Keep a water pitcher in the fridge with watermelon cubes in the bottom," she says. "It's really refreshing, and great incentive to drink more water overall."   Spinach Water content: 91.4% water Iceberg lettuce may have a higher water content, but spinach is usually a better bet overall. Piling raw spinach leaves on your sandwich or salad provides nearly as much built-in hydration, with an added nutritional punch.   Spinach is rich in lutein, potassium, fiber, and brain-boosting folate, and just one cup of raw leaves contains 15% of your daily intake of vitamin E—an important antioxidant for fighting off the damaging molecules known as free radicals.   Star fruit Water content: 91.4% water This tropical fruit, also known as carambola, comes in sweet and tart varieties and has a juicy texture similar to pineapple. Its eye-catching shape looks great in a fruit salad or as an edible garnish on the rim of a summer cocktail, and as an added bonus it's rich in antioxidants, especially epicatechin—a heart-healthy compound also found in red wine, dark chocolate, and green tea.   One note of caution: People with kidney problems should avoid star fruit because of its high levels of oxalic acid.   Strawberries Water content: 91.0% All berries are good foods for hydration, but juicy red strawberries are easily the best of the bunch. Raspberries and blueberries both hover around 85% water, while blackberries are only slightly better at 88.2%.   "I love strawberries blended in a smoothie or mixed with plain nonfat yogurt—another hydrating food," Gans says. Strawberries add natural sweetness to the yogurt, she adds, and the combo of carbohydrates, fiber, and protein make a great post-workout recovery snack.   Broccoli Water content: 90.7% Like its cousin cauliflower, raw broccoli adds a satisfying crunch to a salad. But its nutritional profile—lots of fiber, potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C—is slightly more impressive. What's more, broccoli is the only cruciferous vegetable (a category that contains cabbage and kale, in addition to cauliflower) with a significant amount of sulforaphane, a potent compound that boosts the body's protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals.   Grapefruit Water content: 90.5% This juicy, tangy citrus fruit can help lower cholesterol and shrink your waistline, research suggests. In one study, people who ate one grapefruit a day lowered their bad (LDL) cholesterol by 15.5% and their triglycerides by 27%. In another, eating half a grapefruit—roughly 40 calories—before each meal helped dieters lose about three and a half pounds over 12 weeks. Researchers say that compounds in the fruit help fuel fat burn and stabilize blood sugar, therefore helping to reduce cravings.   Baby carrots Water content: 90.4% A carrot's a carrot, right? Not when it comes to water content. As it turns out, the baby-sized carrots that have become a staple in supermarkets and lunchboxes contain more water than full-size carrots (which are merely 88.3% water).   The ready-to-eat convenience factor is hard to top, as well. Snack on them right out of the bag, dip them in hummus or guacamole, or—for a bit of added crunch and bright orange color—chop them up and add them to salads or salsas.   Cantaloupe Water content: 90.2% This succulent melon provides a big nutritional payoff for very few calories. One six-ounce serving—about one-quarter of a melon—contains just 50 calories but delivers a full 100% of your recommended daily intake of vitamins A and C.   "I love cantaloupe as a dessert," Gans says. "If you've got a sweet tooth, it will definitely satisfy." Tired of plain old raw fruit? Blend cantaloupe with yogurt and freeze it into sherbet, or puree it with orange juice and mint to make a refreshing soup.

And thanks in part to its high water content, celery neutralizes stomach acid and is often recommended as a natural remedy for heartburn and acid reflux.   Radishes Water content: 95.3% These refreshing root vegetables should be a fixture in your spring and summer salads. They provide a burst of spicy-sweet flavor—and color!—in a small package, and more importantly they're filled with antioxidants such as catechin (also found in green tea).   A crunchy texture also makes radishes a perfect addition to healthy summer coleslaw—no mayo required. Slice them up with shredded cabbage and carrots, sliced snow peas, and chopped hazelnuts and parsley, and toss with poppy seeds, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.   Tomatoes Water content: 94.5% Sliced and diced tomatoes will always be a mainstay of salads, sauces, and sandwiches, but don't forget about sweet cherry and grape varieties, which make an excellent hydrating snack, Gans says. "They're great to just pop in your mouth, maybe with some nuts or some low-sodium cheese," she says. "You get this great explosion of flavor when you bite into them."   Having friends over? Skewer grape tomatoes, basil leaves, and small chunks of mozzarella on toothpicks for a quick and easy appetizer.   Green peppers Water content: 93.9% Bell peppers of all shades have a high water content, but green peppers lead the pack, just edging out the red and yellow varieties (which are about 92% water). And contrary to popular belief, green peppers contain just as many antioxidants as their slightly sweeter siblings.   Peppers are a great pre-dinner or late-night snack, Gans says. "We tell people to munch on veggies when they have a craving, but a lot of people get bored of carrots and celery pretty quickly," she says. "Peppers are great to slice up when you get home from work, while you're making or waiting for dinner."   Cauliflower Water content: 92.1% Don't let cauliflower's pale complexion fool you: In addition to having lots of water, these unassuming florets are packed with vitamins and phytonutrients that have been shown to help lower cholesterol and fight cancer, including breast cancer. (A 2012 study of breast cancer patients by Vanderbilt University researchers found that eating cruciferous veggies like cauliflower was associated with a lower risk of dying from the disease or seeing a recurrence.)   "Break them up and add them to a salad for a satisfying crunch,” Gans suggests. "You can even skip the croutons!"   Watermelon Water content: 91.5% water It's fairly obvious that watermelon is full of, well, water, but this juicy melon is also among the richest sources of lycopene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant found in red fruits and vegetables. In fact, watermelon contains more lycopene than raw tomatoes—about 12 milligrams per wedge, versus 3 milligrams per medium-sized tomato.   Although this melon is plenty hydrating on its own, Gans loves to mix it with water in the summertime. "Keep a water pitcher in the fridge with watermelon cubes in the bottom," she says. "It's really refreshing, and great incentive to drink more water overall."   Spinach Water content: 91.4% water Iceberg lettuce may have a higher water content, but spinach is usually a better bet overall. Piling raw spinach leaves on your sandwich or salad provides nearly as much built-in hydration, with an added nutritional punch.   Spinach is rich in lutein, potassium, fiber, and brain-boosting folate, and just one cup of raw leaves contains 15% of your daily intake of vitamin E—an important antioxidant for fighting off the damaging molecules known as free radicals.   Star fruit Water content: 91.4% water This tropical fruit, also known as carambola, comes in sweet and tart varieties and has a juicy texture similar to pineapple. Its eye-catching shape looks great in a fruit salad or as an edible garnish on the rim of a summer cocktail, and as an added bonus it's rich in antioxidants, especially epicatechin—a heart-healthy compound also found in red wine, dark chocolate, and green tea.   One note of caution: People with kidney problems should avoid star fruit because of its high levels of oxalic acid.   Strawberries Water content: 91.0% All berries are good foods for hydration, but juicy red strawberries are easily the best of the bunch. Raspberries and blueberries both hover around 85% water, while blackberries are only slightly better at 88.2%.   "I love strawberries blended in a smoothie or mixed with plain nonfat yogurt—another hydrating food," Gans says. Strawberries add natural sweetness to the yogurt, she adds, and the combo of carbohydrates, fiber, and protein make a great post-workout recovery snack.   Broccoli Water content: 90.7% Like its cousin cauliflower, raw broccoli adds a satisfying crunch to a salad. But its nutritional profile—lots of fiber, potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin C—is slightly more impressive. What's more, broccoli is the only cruciferous vegetable (a category that contains cabbage and kale, in addition to cauliflower) with a significant amount of sulforaphane, a potent compound that boosts the body's protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals.   Grapefruit Water content: 90.5% This juicy, tangy citrus fruit can help lower cholesterol and shrink your waistline, research suggests. In one study, people who ate one grapefruit a day lowered their bad (LDL) cholesterol by 15.5% and their triglycerides by 27%. In another, eating half a grapefruit—roughly 40 calories—before each meal helped dieters lose about three and a half pounds over 12 weeks. Researchers say that compounds in the fruit help fuel fat burn and stabilize blood sugar, therefore helping to reduce cravings.   Baby carrots Water content: 90.4% A carrot's a carrot, right? Not when it comes to water content. As it turns out, the baby-sized carrots that have become a staple in supermarkets and lunchboxes contain more water than full-size carrots (which are merely 88.3% water).   The ready-to-eat convenience factor is hard to top, as well. Snack on them right out of the bag, dip them in hummus or guacamole, or—for a bit of added crunch and bright orange color—chop them up and add them to salads or salsas.   Cantaloupe Water content: 90.2% This succulent melon provides a big nutritional payoff for very few calories. One six-ounce serving—about one-quarter of a melon—contains just 50 calories but delivers a full 100% of your recommended daily intake of vitamins A and C.   "I love cantaloupe as a dessert," Gans says. "If you've got a sweet tooth, it will definitely satisfy." Tired of plain old raw fruit? Blend cantaloupe with yogurt and freeze it into sherbet, or puree it with orange juice and mint to make a refreshing soup.

    Organic gardeners avoid using chemical pesticides because they are toxic to humans (especially small ones), pets and the environment as well as to insects. Organic garden pest control uses non-toxic, natural methods of deterring or removing insects. Insect Repellants       Soap is commonly used for organic garden pest control. You can purchase organic soap insect repellants, or you can make your own by adding a few drops of dish soap to a cup of water. Spraying your insect-infested plants with this organic garden pest control may solve the problem; soap works well on aphids and spider mites. Be sure to completely coat the leaves, stems and flowers of the plant. However, if you use too much soap or the wrong type of soap such as a dish soap with triclosan (such as an antibacterial variety), it may damage the leaves of the plant. Insect Picking For larger insects, the most common organic garden pest control is to go out to the garden when the bugs are most active (usually morning or evening) and pick them off of the plants. Wear gloves if you are squeamish, and drop the bugs into a coffee can full of soapy water to permanently remove those particular bugs from Planet Earth. Companion Planting Certain plants naturally repel insects. You can plant them among your other plants as a form of organic garden pest control. The most frequently used insect repellant plants are onions, garlic and marigolds. Beneficial Insects Some insects eat other insects and don’t eat your plants, and they are a great organic garden pest control. Ladybugs and praying mantis are often used to control garden insects. You can purchase either live insects or egg sacs at most home and garden stores. Simply release them into your garden and they take care of themselves and solve your pest problems. Barriers Physical barriers are another organic garden pest control. You can cut the top and bottom out of coffee cans and push them into the soil around tender young plants to keep cutworms away from them. Sprinkling diatomaceous earth around plants keeps slugs away. Fine netting will protect your plants from grasshopper invasions. These are a few examples of physical barriers you can use as organic garden pest control methods. It takes some creativity to control pests if you’re an organic gardener. You can’t just go out and indiscriminately spray everything with a toxin. You have to choose organic garden pest control methods that are specific to your plants and to the insects you are trying to control.

    The following article if from ICCAN Trail Newsletter November/December 2016 and is about Geronimo, the famous Apache Native American Chief. In the picture above Geronimo is the Indian on the left. The below article is By Dr. Andy Starks/ICCAN Int'l Director & Superintendent   What story of the American West would be complete without some mention of the American Indian; that race of men and women native to the American continent, or at least such long inhabitants that their origin has long been forgotten.   Everyone knows that when Columbus "discovered" America, he thought he had sailed to India, and called the natives he found here, "Indians." What he, and other European explorers found here, was actually a race of people, made up of many groups and tribes, who varied from friendly and inviting, to very unfriendly and defensive. While some, primarily those in the "five civilized tribes," were farmers who lived in towns, others were nomadic and followed the buffalo over large areas of plains and deserts.   It is estimated that, at the time of Columbus, several million American Indians lived in North America. During the early days of the nation, George Washington and others decided to "civilize" the American Indians, so they could become American citizens. Though some tribes, like the Choctaw, voluntarily submitted to this, some were forced, and others flatly refused. In the early decades of the 19th century, many in the deep south were forcefully moved from their homelands to accommodate the expanding American nation. By the time of the War between the States, many tribes had been relocated west of the Mississippi River, primarily in the Oklahoma Territory. Many, however resisted, and took part in the "Indian Wars" that went into the 1890s.   With the great expansion of white hunters and settlers caused by the idea of "Manifest Destiny," the American Indian was either absorbed into white American culture, put on reservations, or pushed farther west and southwest. Some, most notably the Apaches, moved into northern Mexico, where they also came into conflict with Mexican society.   One little-known fact concerning the American Indians is that Geronimo, one of the most notorious of all American Indians, in his old age, became quite a celebrity. He attended the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis and rode in President Theodore Roosevelt's 1905 inaugural parade. Of course, the greatest event in his life was when he came to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. He once said, "I am not ashamed to be a Christian, and I am glad to know that the president of the United States is a Christian, for without the help of the Almighty, I do not think he could rightly judge in ruling so many people."   Geronimo, a Chiricahua Apache, joined the Dutch Reformed Church in 1903 and died of pneumonia on February 17, 1909 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He was buried in the Apache Indian Prisoner of War Cemetery.   Whether white or red, brown or black, we are all sojourners in the land, travelers, visitors, for the Word of God says, "All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever" (1 Pet. 1:24). ♥

    How much can you get affected by your own writing, does anyone else feel the same? It’s like riding a bicycle and you use every muscle to move forward because you know where you’re going and you have a plan. And then a bump in the road or a rock hit the wheel and you fall off. You hurt yourself but get up again to get back on the bicycle. Until it happens again. You don’t forget how to ride a bicycle and it drains everything out of you, but you love it so much, so off you go again.

    How do things happen? Planning? Good design? Hours of brainstorming. Sometimes, but quite often chance is the key driver in man's affairs. Sometimes we facilitate chance, quite unconciously, by pursuing an unrelated activity, that perhaps led to an unrelated act of kindness. Take my case... Did I plan to become an apiarist? No. It all started around 8 years ago, my regular job was installing TV antennas (the unrelated activity), took me to a customer in need of specialised cabling services. His need was to view via video, the inside of his bird nesting  boxes. (His web address is: http://faunature.com.au/nesting-boxes-wildlife-hollows). On my departure, I was equipped with a few nesting boxes for my own garden. I was assured that once installed, high up in my trees, the parrotts would move in within a couople of weeks. Obviously I was skeptical. Nest box for rent, green parrots wanted... Much to my surprise, almost immediately, Rosella parrotts, and Lorrikeets moved in and started laying eggs. All seemed well. Success was short lived. Feral bees chased out the Rosellas. What to do? Not happy! The bees were chased out. The nest box was cleaned and restored. Only to be taken over by media watching Galahs. The Galahs, should be on The Block. They have extensively renovated their Lorrikeet box during their extended "squat", but they have also raised at least 5 sets of young Galahs, whom have all moved into politics! Have you seen the state of the country?? One box had always remained empty. The owls never found it or just didnt like the view. The bees returned and moved into the owl box. I was older and wiser. We need bees too. Bees need homes too. Perhaps they would boost my gardening results...very hit and miss. That was at least six years ago. The bees have been very busy bees. Quietly minding their own business, high up in my gum tree, producing honey and offspring(another TV show??). Time takes its toll on everything. Bees are not really focussed on home maintenance and have scant regard for the weather. This years weather has been spectacular, and for some quite harsh, but thats Nature. One fine day...no not really. One thumping big storm, howling wind, horizontal rain and thousands of flashes of lightning saw the Bee palace come crashing to earth. There it lay in my front garden, quietly crushing a green bush. Unperterbed, the bees went about their business during fine breaks in the miserable weather. Finally the mercury crept up a bit, encouraging me to venture outside and discover the forlorn owl box. I thought I should at least stand the box upright, before deciding what to do. So, I bent over thinking no problem... WOW this is REALLY heavy, and packed with bees still asleep. The impromptu hive felt like a 25kg rock!! Full of honey i guess!! How much do bees weigh. Do bees still have weight when they are flying but still inside the box? I stood it up. Here come the bees.RUN.. Well, it couldnt stay where it was. Thankfully, the extreme cold made the bees reluctant to venture out early. None the less, it took me a week to move the hive a few meteres each day (running for cover when the bees awoke) to arrive at a secluded part of my garden. Now what? Well, they sat for a while. They seemed happy. I took some advice from a 'legal' friend. They cant stay, they probably can be collected and exterminated by a pest controller! Hmmm over my dead body... So, now I'm a registered Apiarist, taking a keen interest in the health of my adopted bees. Now what....  27 October, the saga continues... So the feral bees are now buzzing away in their bird box squat, now on the ground in a secluded corner of my garden. Where to now? Well, Google of course! So, I read a heap of articles on bees. Wow, fascinating creatures. Who's in charge? Is it a democracy or a monarchy? Do bees only produce honey? Do they all have stingers? Do they get sick? Why are bees on the endangered species list? Why you should help your local bee keeper. How dangerous is the hive? Does the sting hurt, how do you remove it? How can I persuade the feral bees to move into a modern managed hive? Do I know all the answers? No, of course not, but we will soon.   November 4th: Well, the challenge now is to move the feral bees from their 8 year squat in the birdbox to a modern manageable hive. Plan A. I set about building a small hive. I didnt want to use full size dimensions in case the plan failed. I bought materials for half sized frames. 10 sets. The longer term view is that all hive components should be interchangeable or modular, enabling reuse in other locations, depending on needs. A standard hive typically has ten frames. If you use less than ten frames, then the bees wont build out the comb evenly, and you will have trouble extracting the stored honey.The comb that the bees build is a valuable and costly resource in terms of time and energy input from the bees, this time and effort is otherwise directed to producing honey, that we plan to steal! Its quite surprising how long it takes to assemble these simple frames. Gluing, nailing and correcting for out of square, before you know its midnight. After drying you can trim off any glue that has oozed into the wrong places. Each frame end needs 4 tiny metal eyelets. Once fitted a galvanised steel wire is threaded through the eyelets and pulled tight. Its harder than you might think. Finally, the wire is crimped. A process where lilltle bends or corrugations are pressed into the wire, to further tighten and aid attachment to the wax foundation. What is foundation? Well, this is another aid we give the bees. Simply put, it is  a sheet of bees wax with a hexagonal patten embossed into the surface. The idea is to encourage the bees to build uniform straight comb on both sides of the wax sheet. Generally, the bees follow the plan, and we finish up with honey comb about 40mm deep. The bees fill this from both sides and when the time is right, they seal off the cells preserving the honey. Having explained what foundation is, I'll finish the steps need for finishing the frames. Recapping, we now have a rectangular wooden frame, strung with thin steel wire. The foundation sheets are fitted into a slot in the frame and make contact with the 4 strands of wire traversing the frame lengthwise. We now apply and electric current to heat the wire, melting the wax slightly and embedding the wire into the surface of the wax foundation. This stabilises the foundation in the frame, and helps to spread the load, once the comb is filled with honey. Each frame could weigh up to 3kg!   The frames need a box to support them. This is the main body of the hive. It protects the cragile frames, sound to contain edible gold succulent honey from the ravages of weather, animals and other insect predators. A lip is machined into the 2 ends of the box, to support the protruding lugs at each end of our frames. When the frames sit on this lip, the bottom of the frame must not protrude below the box. Now we have frames, and a box. Finally, we need a top and bottom piece. The top piece contains air vents, and a sheet metal layer to protect the flat top from the harsh effects of sun and rain. The air vents need to be covered with insect proof mesh, such that only air can pass through. This is important, as the bees need to remove excess water from the nectar to make honey. Too much water causes the honey to ferment. The vents help control hive humidity. The bottom section, contains the hive entrance/exit and a baffle board to control or prevent strong wind from entering, and disturbing the delicate temperature balance being maintained by the bees around their brood. That is, the eggs, lavae, pupae and newly hatched bees. The temperature is maintained at 34 degrees celcius. So, now you know what a standard hive contains. We now have our first hive constructed and waiting for the feral bees to move in. My first thought was that if I force the bees to fly through the new hive before entering their squat, they would appreciate the new surroundings and simply move. I made a modified top piece with a few small holes, and placed the bird box over the holes. Finally I sealed all the other openings in the bird box. Hooray, the bees have discovered the new way in and out. Everything looks normal. So we just wait a few weeks and the bees will move house, yes? Actually, NO! They're quite happy in their old digs. Not a total loss though. The bees have built honey comb onto the new foundation. They've been working hard. They're even storing honey in the new comb. Progress. Back to Google. When do bees move? In Spring. Its called swarming. What makes a hive swarm? Many things, sometimes we dont really know why. If they are uncomfortable, perhaps they'll swarm into the new digs. Plan B: Replace the modified top with a standard vented top. At least now we can easily look in and see what is happening. Create a modified bottom board with a 100mm circular cutout. Attach a similar board to the bottom of the bee squat (bird box) with matching 100mm hole. Join the two boxes with a flexible tube, and turn the bee squat UPSIDE DOWN!! Encase the bee squat in a heavy duty plastic bag and seal it carefully. The aim here is to keep out any unwanted pests, and keep moisture IN! Now, perhaps the squat will become uncomfortably hot and humid, causing the bees to swarm into the attached hive. Plan B is now fully operational. Externally, things look normal. The bees are very active, coming in and out of the hybrid hive. They seem to be working very hard. Now, time might be my friend. The weather is warming up. The humidity should be rising in the hive. Judging, by the amount of activity, the new frames should be filling with honey. The queen should be laying eggs, the hive should be expanding as we now have more room (the ensuite hive with all new decor). This should add to the pressure to move. Where to now? Wait and watch. Options: 1.        The queen moves. Place a queen excluder in the path back into the squat, preventing the queen from leaving the new hive. Blow some smoke into the old box to force out          the remaining bees. When clear of bees, remove honey and wax. Party time. 2.        The queen doesn't move. Try smoking the old box, being careful not to kill the queen. Then do option 1 above. 3.        The queen still doesnt move. I could just leave things as they now are. The top section is a manageable hive, giving me a view and a clue as to the overall health of the feral bees. Realistically, this is an 8-10 year old colony. They must be healthy, or they'd be dead long ago. I can treat the new section as a honey "super" (bulk honey storage) and just harvest it as required.   An ongoing experiment. You guessed it, its time for another look inside, later this afternoon. Fingers crossed!

  • How do things happen? Planning? Good design? Hours of brainstorming. Sometimes, but quite often chance is the key driver in man's affairs. Sometimes we facilitate chance, quite unconciously, by pursuing an unrelated activity, that perhaps led to an unrelated act of kindness. Take my case... Did I plan to become an apiarist? No. It all started around 8 years ago, my regular job was installing TV antennas (the unrelated activity), took me to a customer in need of specialised cabling services. His need was to view via video, the inside of his bird nesting  boxes. (His web address is: http://faunature.com.au/nesting-boxes-wildlife-hollows). On my departure, I was equipped with a few nesting boxes for my own garden. I was assured that once installed, high up in my trees, the parrotts would move in within a couople of weeks. Obviously I was skeptical. Nest box for rent, green parrots wanted... Much to my surprise, almost immediately, Rosella parrotts, and Lorrikeets moved in and started laying eggs. All seemed well. Success was short lived. Feral bees chased out the Rosellas. What to do? Not happy! The bees were chased out. The nest box was cleaned and restored. Only to be taken over by media watching Galahs. The Galahs, should be on The Block. They have extensively renovated their Lorrikeet box during their extended "squat", but they have also raised at least 5 sets of young Galahs, whom have all moved into politics! Have you seen the state of the country?? One box had always remained empty. The owls never found it or just didnt like the view. The bees returned and moved into the owl box. I was older and wiser. We need bees too. Bees need homes too. Perhaps they would boost my gardening results...very hit and miss. That was at least six years ago. The bees have been very busy bees. Quietly minding their own business, high up in my gum tree, producing honey and offspring(another TV show??). Time takes its toll on everything. Bees are not really focussed on home maintenance and have scant regard for the weather. This years weather has been spectacular, and for some quite harsh, but thats Nature. One fine day...no not really. One thumping big storm, howling wind, horizontal rain and thousands of flashes of lightning saw the Bee palace come crashing to earth. There it lay in my front garden, quietly crushing a green bush. Unperterbed, the bees went about their business during fine breaks in the miserable weather. Finally the mercury crept up a bit, encouraging me to venture outside and discover the forlorn owl box. I thought I should at least stand the box upright, before deciding what to do. So, I bent over thinking no problem... WOW this is REALLY heavy, and packed with bees still asleep. The impromptu hive felt like a 25kg rock!! Full of honey i guess!! How much do bees weigh. Do bees still have weight when they are flying but still inside the box? I stood it up. Here come the bees.RUN.. Well, it couldnt stay where it was. Thankfully, the extreme cold made the bees reluctant to venture out early. None the less, it took me a week to move the hive a few meteres each day (running for cover when the bees awoke) to arrive at a secluded part of my garden. Now what? Well, they sat for a while. They seemed happy. I took some advice from a 'legal' friend. They cant stay, they probably can be collected and exterminated by a pest controller! Hmmm over my dead body... So, now I'm a registered Apiarist, taking a keen interest in the health of my adopted bees. Now what....  27 October, the saga continues... So the feral bees are now buzzing away in their bird box squat, now on the ground in a secluded corner of my garden. Where to now? Well, Google of course! So, I read a heap of articles on bees. Wow, fascinating creatures. Who's in charge? Is it a democracy or a monarchy? Do bees only produce honey? Do they all have stingers? Do they get sick? Why are bees on the endangered species list? Why you should help your local bee keeper. How dangerous is the hive? Does the sting hurt, how do you remove it? How can I persuade the feral bees to move into a modern managed hive? Do I know all the answers? No, of course not, but we will soon.   November 4th: Well, the challenge now is to move the feral bees from their 8 year squat in the birdbox to a modern manageable hive.

    It’s dark, SAM walks slowly, feeling her way. She opens a door and walks in very slowly. She enters the room and it’s empty. She turns around when LEO jumps on her from out the dark. She screams! (The room lights up just enough to see what they’re doing) He pushed her, hard. She fell on the floor. There is blood coming out his mouth and she watched it drip down her legs. The next moment he jumps on her with his hands around her neck. She struggle to breathe while seeing his face changing.   It then goes completely black.

      I receive emails from Healthier Talk, Ask, Answer, Share. They send amazing information which I find very useful and I like to let others know this excellent information. I have had trouble in the past with my teeth and I usually floss every single day without fail after learning how important this procedure is to our health. This information from "Healthier Talk" confirms what I have learnt and is well worth reading.  Linda         One easy tweak a week transforms your health in 2 months "Transform your health." Just the phrase alone sounds intimidating, not to mention like it's going to take a whole lot of time, work, discipline and sacrifice. But what if we told you that you can truly transform your health in just 2 months? It's true. And that's not all. You can accomplish this incredible transformation by making just one tiny tweak a week.   Don't worry, this isn't one of those 2 months plans that swears it will be easy, and then is so tough that you quit before the first week is up. These really are small changes that over the long run will make a big difference. The key is to do them every single day. And each week, add the new step in, so that they build on top of each other. Stick to it, and you'll be amazed by the changes you see, and feel, within just 2 months… Week 1 -- Floss: Floss every day. That's it. Really. Flossing doesn't just help oral health. The bacteria that builds up between your teeth gets swallowed, and into your bloodstream. There it can affect any system in your body, even raising your risk for deadly pancreatic cancer. Week 2 -- Take a walk: Once a day, step outside your front door. Walk for 15 minutes, then turn around and walk back home again. Make sure you move as fast as you can, but don't worry about breaking land-speed records. On a scale from 1 to 10, aim for a 5 or 6. Week 3 -- Ask for it on the side: Whenever you eat out, order your dressing on the side. Unlike your own healthy homemade dressings, the ones you get in most restaurants are full of unhealthy vegetable oils, chemicals and preservatives. Dip your fork in the dressing and then stab your lettuce. You'll still get the taste and texture, without swallowing as much of the stuff you don't want. Or ask if they have olive oil and vinegar instead.  Week 4 -- Balance: Balance is key to staying mobile and independent. When you're at the sink doing dishes, or brushing your teeth, or even during commercial breaks, stand on one foot for 30 seconds. Click HERE to read more...   Information received from Healthier Talk.com
