Those Eyes are Beautiful Because?

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

I love those beauty seminars at a Bettina Network Hedge School.  New to me, but fantastic.

I could only stay one night, but what I took with me will last for years – I hope!

We had a demonstration, after a great breakfast conversation on your eyes.  I tried it at home and am going to do this every night until my eyes look fantastic.

We took one small cucumber – organic.  Put it in a blender until it was chopped up fine with liquid.

The person demonstrating stretched out on the floor and put a handful of the ground cucumber over each tightly closed eye.  The liquid dripped off her face so she had a towel under her head and neck.  The remaining cucumber she massaged into the rest of her face – first the liquid and then the chopped up parts and let it stay for about 1/2 hour while we talked about our beauty secrets.  There were not many and mine came from commercial products which have cost me a fortune over the years, which is why I was traveling this time to a BN Hedge School.

When she rinse her face – in the Bettina Network’s way of splashing cool water on your face until the cucumber has been washed off method – she looked fantastic.  Something happened to the color of her skin although I can’t tell you what – I just know it was different and much more attractive.  She talked about how great her eyes felt.  “They feel clear and unclouded – like they just had a great bath or a long shower.”

We were told to check Bettina Network’s Blog under “Health and Beauty” for more such beauty tips.  I think my cosmetic bill is going down dramatically and soon.

Bettina’s Fried Chicken – the Ultimate Recipe

Friday, August 28th, 2015

copyright Bettina Network, inc. 2015

This is fried chicken the way Grandmother made it.  And remember – taste happened in Grandmother’s recipes.  Todays’ processed food and processed food recipes have to use lots of salt and sugar to make their food taste.  Grandmother used very little sugar in anything and even less salt and the sugar she used was not the over-processed, over-refined sugar which delivers nothing but a sweet taste that gets old and ugly when you begin to wake up your taste buds with real food.

  1. Pour enough organic milk in a bowl to cover the chicken you are going to fry.
  2. Add organic apple cider vinegar.  Use your judgment for how much – you really do have taste and really do need to stop slavishly following recipes without using your judgment on the ingredients, etc.  Each recipe you use should become your own.
  3. Let the milk and vinegar sit for several minutes while it bubbles and becomes like buttermilk.
  4. Instead of the organic apple cider vinegar – or if you want a change, squeeze a couple lemons into the milk and let sit until you get buttermilk.
  5. Put organic chicken pieces into the milk and let sit for a couple hours or preferably overnight.
  6. When you are ready to fry the chicken – the oil you use is crucial because it adds to the taste and health benefits of this dish. We use a couple.  Half organic butter and half organic coconut oil in a skillet to about 1/3 the way to the top of the skillet.  Or, if you want a change and a very different taste try organic peanut oil.
  7. NO! Don’t use olive oil.  That is used beautifully in a salad or some other dish which you do not cook.  You don’t want rancid oil as the basic taste of what you are cooking.  It becomes a taste you recognize and like if you use if often, but it is not a good one.
  8. After heating the oil, rinse the milk mixture off the chicken under cool running water
  9. Put the chicken in organic flour and coat the chicken.  Let sit a few minutes for the flour to sort of harden before putting chicken in the skillet.
  10. Sprinkle himalayan salt, cayenne pepper, thyme over the chicken before putting the chicken in the skillet.  And of course, those are all organically grown spices.  If you are Italian or have those taste buds, you can add organic oregano to the spices you use on this chicken.  We think the combination of these four spices gives the ultimate taste, but it is your judgment call.
  11. Cook, turning when the skin turns the color brown you best like in chicken.
  12. There are two ways to finish this chicken.  You can continue frying the chicken in the iron skillet until it is done or when the chicken has browned you can put it on a baking pan in the oven at 350 degrees and bake until done.
  13. Enjoy a powerfully great fried chicken.

Back To Buying Penny Stocks

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

copyright 2015 Bettina Network, inc.

We’ve been very serious about all kind of civil rights.  Along comes a breakfast which brings us back to making money – we hope!

It was a very exciting morning – so much so that I decided to splurge and bought National Bank of Greece stock.  Paid $.79/share for it and all because of a breakfast conversation.

We had a wonderful guest from Greece who talked about the situation with the credit and whatever else was happening in Greece.  His concern was that the banks had closed and he wasn’t sure for how long or what to do about his travels – cut them short and go home or hold out and hope everything worked itself out so he could continue his quest for knowledge.

A few days later the banks opened – about August 3rd and we were very excited to follow what was happening.

One guest was buying National Bank of Greece stock (NBG) so we followed suit.  I remember my lessons on stock buying – buy when things look hopeless, sell when they look as though the stock is going through the roof.  This looked sort of hopeless, but not quite, so we bought and so did everyone around the table.  What incredible fun and what trouble we could get into if this Bank closes.

Today, the stock is selling at about $ .86/share so we are ahead of the game.

Greece has always had a secret place in my heart so it was great to be able to participate in this.  Hopefully, I will become an almost instant millionaire.  But since I only bought 2,000 shares, the stock would have to move dramatically for that to happen.  As it is, I have a nice little profit and so do my breakfast mates.
