Cleaning Wood Floors on a Holiday?

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

I spent the Thanksgiving holiday cleaning my wood floors.  Since I was a guest at someone else’s house for Thanksgiving I was able to do that and then go to dinner feeling really smug, superior and with imaginary smiley faces above my head because I had done great work and then appeared beautifully coiffed and dressed for the dinner.  Try it – you might find a great sense of satisfaction to take with you as you enjoy time with family and friends. And – when you invite them over to your house you can show off your newly beautiful wood floors.  This also eliminates the need to sand your wood floors every seven years or so – it preserves the wood; keeps it looking spectacular; and any imperfections turn into beauty spots as you oil away.

Why was this a great thing to do?  When I returned home, the house smelled fantastic and there were no off gases to disturb my already disturbed indigestion, full stomach, food coma, etc.

Bettina Network’s Blog has talked about cleaning wood floors.  I think I have taken their discussion one step further because I found the oil which does not become tacky after more then one application.  I used their method, just changed the kind of oil.  You can search this blog for what they have written, but if you try it I suggest that you use Grapeseed oil.  I think they suggest mixing oils or something like that.  I have used Grapeseed oil on my wood furniture in the past and reasoned that it would probably also be good for the floors – especially since having put several applications over time on my wood furniture without any sticky/tacky results this must be the oil to use.

This is not for the faint of heart.  This is for the human much in need of upper body exercise and strenuous, sustained exercise at that.  That little OOOO steel wool does not give you wide sweeping quick results.  I guess that is why those chemicals, preservatives and other things have become so popular in this society.  We don’t want to work.  With slavery out,  having to do it yourself results in lots of sin falling on others as we try to have quick and easy to use products replace slaves.  If you are interested in maintaining your good health – or at the very least not doing any more damage than you have already done to your body – you might ignore the amount of work and time this takes and try replacing those quicker methods and dangerous chemicals with this tried and true, for generations .way of doing things.  Knowledge we’ve lost and can’t pass on to our children.  What we are passing on is very lethal to them and their progeny and to any objects on which we are using those chemical-laden products.

We have replaced the positive work of former generations with going to the gym – walking – biking, etc.  Nothing wrong with any of those things, but when it comes to life maintenance we turn that from the process of exercising the same muscle groupings into drudgery that we have to pay others to do and give them seriously health negating products to do this work.  That is really screwed up.

First – if you have not done this before you need to clean your floors.  This is not a necessary step, but one that will make you feel better.  I did this with water and Mrs. Meyers.  As I moved along I replaced Mrs. Meyers with organic apple cider vinegar and then replaced that with just plain water and essential oil (lavender – my favorite oil for cleaning because moths and other such insects don’t like to live around this essential oil and I love the smell it gives to the house.). It wasn’t until I almost finished this cleaning step that I realized it was a lot of work for nothing.  I could have gone straight to the OOOO steel wool and grapeseed oil with better results.  But I felt better and felt the floors were cleaner with this extra step. Upbringing is hard to overcome.

This was much needed because I have been slack lately.  Tired of cleaning. Thought I was finished with this part of life, but the house ignored that thought and just went merrily on getting dirty again.

After washing the floor – I used OOOO steel wool and grapeseed oil.  Pour some grapeseed oil on the wood floor and rub it in with the OOOO steel wool.  If you have lots of wood floor you are in for a very long project.  I suggest you break it up into several days.  It is unbelievably good for the upper body.  You can drop your gym membership if you clean your own house using natural ingredients.  If you hire people to help you clean you are in for a long, brutal fight to get them to give up their horrible, chemical products.  Things are so bad now that people who clean bring their own vacuum cleaners and those who hire them brag about the fact that they don’t own a vacuum cleaner.  This young generations is spawning its own diseases and transmitting them in the most insane ways.

Rub the floor with the OOOO steel wool until all dirt is removed.  This is the real cleaning – the water and stuff was just suggested for those who don’t feel anything is clean without the suds and water step.  For the rest of us you could start with the OOO steel wool on the wood floor and forget washing with water – this does a better job.

I did one small square of the floor at a time.  Moved the furniture from that square  – oiled the floor – moved to the opposite side of the room – moved furniture from that small square – did the floor and then moved the first square’s furniture back into place because the oil dried and when I finished the room was ready for use.

After oiling with OOOO steel wool and grapeseed oil, wipe the floor with a soft cloth until as much of the oil is taken up as possible.  You will have a slight sheen and in about an hour the floor is ready to be walked on and it looks unbelievable.  For cleaning cloths I cut up my old, ripped sheets and keep them in a laundry basked using them as necessary.  I also cut up my old towels and keep them in the same place.  Would you believe I have a friend who actually goes to the store and buys cleaning cloths?  I couldn’t imagine spending money on such – especially since she generally throws out her sheets and towels when they are no longer usable as such.

For upkeep – simply use the soft cloth with a little grapeseed oil on the cloth and wipe up the floor.  If you have dirt working its way into the floor, use the OOOO steel wool to get those spots clean and then wipe the floor as dry as possible with the grapeseed oiled cloth.

Grapeseed oil is a little expensive, but not nearly as much as it would cost for the commercial floor cleaners and waxers which will make sure your house is full of off gases from the process for days and you will not be aware of all the chemical stuff you are breathing into your body setting it up for some kind of disease down the road.  Grapeseed oil for a normal room costs about $6 unless you want to go upscale and get the best grapeseed oil and that will cost you about $9-12 for a bottle and that is about how much you will need for a very large room.  Commercial cleaners cost quadruple that amount and more depending on which commercial products you use.

Have you noticed the difference between those living an organic life style and those going the processed/commercial/chemicalized route?  The people I see who look much younger than their years and who are healthier than you think you have a right to be are the ones using this kind of cleaning process with its attendant products and supplementing that with organic foods.

Food – Naturally grown products – are all that we need to keep a clean house.  Those people I know into fanatically clean houses actually have the filthiest houses on the block.  They are houses that will set you up for a cold or other kind of illness because the products they use for what they consider a fantastically clean house are really quite putrid.  I try to stay out of those homes.  It would be considered ill mannered if I put on a surgical mouth covering before entering so I just stay home or visit those whose cleaning habits I know.  I prefer to visit and/or live in a house that we consider “dirty” to one of those we consider really fantastically clean all the time where the one uses organic real food cleaning products and the other uses chemicalized product.  And I do my best to stay out of houses where cleaning people use one vacuum cleaner for all of their clients homes.

There is no reason to use anything for cleaning, eating, cosmeticizing your body except organic foods.  A strange concept for many today, but a healthy one for all human beings.  The colonizers brought in a new lifestyle – one on which they could make billions and are still pushing that lifestyle even today on the rest of us who are ignorant of our own best interests.  We have been sucked into human greed which destroys human life.

In the case of your wood floor, if you have a difficult time finding organic grapeseed oil  you can use regular grapeseed oil until you can find the organic kind.

It took quite a long time to clean my wood floors.  Hours, in fact.  That didn’t bother me because my hands are now soft from using an oil that not only cleans the floor, but leaves my skin better at the end of the job then at the beginning and I know that the next time it will just be a question of wiping the floor with a soft cloth with a little oil on the cloth and we are home free – clean, beautiful, nice looking house and well exercised body.

Trump – Peter Thiel – Russia – anymore?

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

I read all of your articles.

My response to your latest and all of the others follows:

The largest and I think earliest  investor in Facebook was Peter Thiel. – the Facebook which is in the news for being very much involved with the Russian interference in this last presidential election.  The same Facebook which had those FAKE NEWS articles all over and you know the story.

One of a very small number of people who made large contributions to the Trump campaign – and early on – was Peter Thiel.

The person who organized and used his influence, friendship and business connections to put on that meeting of top IT people in this country right after Trump was inaugurated which showcased Trump – all of the Google, Facebook, etc. top executives together around Trump’s table and also showcased Trump’s children as professionals involved with his governance – was Peter Thiel.

What are Peter Thiel’s Russian connections?

Isn’t Peter Thiel the person most responsible for keeping Blacks and Women, who were working hard to bring about their new ideas, out of the business community as they were scooped – and not accidentally scooped, but had their ideas brazenly stolen –  by other white males with Northern European ancestry who turn up with the ideas, business plans and much more of those same Blacks and Women with the money to bring them to fruition and with a great deal of that money put in place by Peter Thiel and lets not ignore or leave out his friends?

Is there a common thread here?

Especially since the racist and sexist structures of these newly stolen businesses would put this last generation of business entrepreneurs to shame in the way they have totally excluded minorities and women – as customers of these new businesses as well as owners, etc.  except, well, the one or two included to disprove the rule are always included.  This next generation of business entrepreneurs makes the hearts of the KKK, the white supremacists, the Neo-Nazi’s and others palpitate with excitement as they see this helping to make real their hateful world view.

Response to “Edmund Petus Bridge”

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

You’ve done it again.  I did not make the connection between what is happening today in Alabama with what happened all those years ago in Alabama against African Americans.  This is sick!

I saw the people at the press conference of evangelicals raving and screaming in favor of Roy Moore.  What struck me during that time was how low Roy Moore brought his wife by having her out front defending him against his sexual abuse against other women.  It was incredible psychic sexual abuse against his own wife.  She must know the truth of his penchant for teenage girls – too many others know it for her to be in ignorance.  How that must hurt to be the one on that stage.

It also struck me as to how scared the men were who were talking – raving actually – about god and Roy Moore.  I wondered if they were so fearful because they have to put the women down as brutally as possible who are telling their stories about Roy Moore’s sexual abuse because women will be out there telling their stories about the men raving on that stage.

I also noticed color doesn’t make a bit of difference – the men were white, black, brown.  All united trying to keep their claimed ‘superiority’, which would be taken away from them if they don’t destroy the women speaking out.  But the curtains have been raised and we can all see what this is about and guess what is still hidden.

Thanks for this article.  It was quite eye opening.  Keep telling these truths – we are listening.  How about more comments from “Bettina Network’s Oracle”?  The last one was right on and you folks were the first to make the connection between Trump – the mafia and what is looking like treason by the president of these United States.  That is all just now being unveiled for the rest of us to see.  Would like to know where we are going next.

Thanks,

“A very proud member of Bettina Network’s Lifestyle Community”

Back to the Edmund Petus Bridge

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

by Marceline Donaldson

Something is oddly familiar in this “stand-off: now going on amongst our government officials, politicians, hopefuls and a very oppressed group which Alabama and others are trying desperately to contain and keep in their oppressed state.  Even the current Governor of Alabama has come public and done a modernized version of Governor George Wallace’s stand to keep African Americans from voting and therefore from their civil rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution.

When I heard Governor Kay Ivey on television taking her incredibly historical stance, I could not see her face for the imposition of George Wallace’s face over her face and figure on television.

Nothing hurts more than one of your own, standing up in the most self-righteous and arrogant way, selling you into slavery and she did that beautifully.  She did not lose her very southern lady-like composure in the process of spouting and spewing evil.  Clearly, the Republican Party has maintained its position as “Keepers of the Bigotry” which has long characterized Alabama.  Have you thought about or read the story of what happened on the Edmund Petus Bridge?  Do you see the parallels?  We’ve had the slaughter of the women.  It should now be time for the healing oil and who will do the pouring of that oil to heal our sins?

True – other states and areas do the same, but somehow the theatrics in Alabama and its connecting its maintenance of bigotry to a religion with its own theology is unique.  We know well this heretical religion.  The one which has been developing since slavery and which was used to justify and maintain slavery.  We have lived with it in many places across these United States and still are living with its remnants. You know the religion.  The one where you went into one of its churches and found you could only sit in the back pews, if you were African American – or you could only sit in the balcony – or you were taken out of the church by the ushers if you were African American because you were not allowed into those particular churches.

They still exist today and you can tell them almost upon entering into their ‘holy’ places.  You look on their altar and you see those officiating are almost uniformly white.  Maybe a child of color or two, but the adults of color are missing.  You hear their sermons and they lack that something you hear in other churches.  Their ‘leaders’ are ‘leading’ to gain a foot up in their jobs or chosen vocations.  They are doing everything they can to help those like them maintain their facade of being ‘better than’.  Those more enlightened heretical churches are doing some of the most foolish things you can imagine, but as you watch, they call those things their ‘holy rituals.’  And it becomes clear after a short time that they are keeping the bigotry and maintaining the image of superiority of the white males of Northern European ancestry – those in their midst and the others spread around the globe. You have to leave that space because what you also see and experience is their meanness when pushed to see and remove the bigotry and heresy they practice.  It is time, however, for them and us to do just that!

The blanket has been ripped off.  The psychic violence and physical and emotional destructive confrontation on the Edmund Petus Bridge has happened as the current Governor has let the rest of us see and hear her ‘religious’ beliefs, which are indicative of the many in Alabama who she represents – male, female of all stripes and colors.  She has made a very clear statement that she prefers her political party with all of its shame and sin to anything else because she knows they will continue in the ways of the vile past and they will continue holding her and others like her up in their belief that they are ‘better than’ everyone in the world not like them.  Her very words, however, show clearly that she is not free and equal, she is the governor, but she clearly neither respects her gender nor others around her who are neither white nor of Northern European ancestry.

Governor Ivey today – as did Governor Wallace in yesteryear – has given the green light to the worst kind of evil.  She has called her state to shame themselves.  She has declared her bigotry and the fact that she is conscious of her bigotry and will continue to practice it because that is what she sees her position as governor calling her to do.   She has called her state to let the world know that the citizens of Alabama prefer their bigotry and will maintain it defending themselves against positive change even while exposing their children to the sin of pedophilia, psychic and physical sexual abuse, lying, cheating,  which she has depicted as just fine and good and righteous choices if made defending their ‘white is better than’ status and their declared right to dishonor – disrespect – and so much more – those with whom they share this earth if those people are neither ‘white’ nor ‘male with Northern European ancestry’.  What lessons those children are learning from their parents.

We are back on the Edmund Petus Bridge.   Because of the lessons this current generation learned, while children watching their parents as they cheered for George Wallace and his friends  on the bridge using it as their bully pulpit.   They watched as some of their adult neighbors brutalized, beat and tried to slaughter African Americans and those supporting them on that Edmund Petus Bridge.

The children were present and silently watching that entire drama and so today we have that generation, all grown up, doing their best to follow in the footsteps of their parents, their friends, their government figures, their politicians.  They are going where this evil is leading and, in the end, they will pay the price.

Many of those children have adopted the religion of their parents – who themselves adopted and adapted the religion of the slaveholders and slave owners before them.  They have seen their parents and grandparents erect memorials to those who did their best to keep human beings enslaved because they wanted ‘free’ labor and wanted that ‘better than’, ‘white is superior’, white supremacy identity.  They saw the KKK in their white sheets and pointy caps circling those lit crosses.  They saw African Americans turned away at their city halls in brutal ways when they tried to vote; these children knew the U. S. Constitution was being violated in the process; and they were present in the home where their mothers and aunts and female cousins were treated as second class citizens; they were present in the rest of society to see those same relatives, all dressed up and play acting to avoid their reality as they were treated as the household servants.  They understood who they were and the positions they would take before they reached voting age and they are now taking those positions.

When you sow the wind – you reap the whirlwind.

Alabama is and has been reaping the beginnings of that whirlwind when you look closely and you see it is one of the poorest states in the Union; when you see jobs scarce; when you see children going without; when you see the low level of education throughout the state; when you see the priorities of the politicians and government officials who are absorbed in maintaining their ‘better than’ status at a very high cost to everyone in the state; when you see the corruption overlooked because the ‘official’ is guarding your ‘better than’ identity; when you see all that has been wrought against Alabamians through their keeping their slaveowners religion above all else and crafting a political party which does the actual work the theology of that religion leads them to do.

It is one of the great tragedies of these United States.  AND – not to be overlooked is the fact that our current president – Donald J. Trump – is very popular in this state which condones and gives him positive feedback on all of his evil deeds.  When you see this state raising up politicians who follow his footsteps as he has followed in the footsteps of Roy Cohn, Joseph McCarthy, Adolph Hitler, Stalin and today Vladimir Putin, as well as the leaders of the mafia organizations around the world.

Sieg Heil Kay Ivey!  There were also Jews who sold out other Jews in Nazi Germany and even today there are African Americans selling out other African Americans for what they think will raise them up to the status of ‘almost, but not quite equal to’ – ‘at least not like them’ – ‘different from those others’ – etc.

“Man’s inhumanity to man” – needs a political correctness overlay “We all die and move on out of this earthly sphere – yet we act as though some are better than and their human bodies will not rot.  The color of their skin and the kind of genitals they have will preserve them”.  Folly of follies are these humans, especially when they try to be ‘better than’. – At that point, the evil starts pouring out of them and their actions conform and are uniformly sinful no matter their money, status, history, education…….

Sexual Abuse/Hillary/Trump

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

We are calling for the world to condemn the sexual abuse going on against women in this world, currently being acted out in the most vicious way against women in the United States.  We have been totally self-righteous and have claimed for generations that we are better than the rest of the world.  That better than is the theme of today’s governmental figures.  If you don’t quote the rhetoric you don’t get the job in government.

We also ask that you acknowledge that sexual abuse is not just physical.  It  is psychic as well and that which has kept women down for centuries.  It is enough!

Want to see real fear?  Take a look at the men trying to stomp on Hillary Clinton.  The fear shines through them as their fear that their wives, mothers and children will follow her example and be independent people contributing from their own lives, their own souls, their own character to this world in which they live.

The religion which masquerades as Christianity, which I call christianity,  is a farce – a heresy – and needs to be exposed for what it is – the biggest lie ever told.

Christianity in places like Alabama has been reduced to having its capital “C” traded in for a small “c”.  It is the religions of the KKK, the Neo-Nazi’s the White Supremacists and more like them.  It is a religion which puts itself and its adherents on a level with God.  It is a religion in which the people can lie, cheat, steal and destroy one another in the name of being better than.  It is the religion which partnered with the slaveholders in the United States as well as in other parts of the world.  It is the left hand of the Confederate memorials which many can’t live without because it reflects and gives them some kind of “truth” to their claim of superiority.  If Germany kept such memorials to Hitler and his war the world would rise up in horror.  What happens in places like Alabama and the rest of the country is the exact same thing.  Memorials to slavery – to the Confederate war which as about the maintenance of slavery and a harkening back to romanticizing that time in our history. All of that is necessary to keep that time alive and something for its adherents to struggle to get back to.  Isn’t that what “Make America Great Again” means?  Bring back those times when we put out the lie that Africans were inferior and meant to serve the whites of the world?  Isn’t that the history Trump and his followers want to get back to?  Isn’t that why Roy Moore has supporters and why people voted for Trump?  They didn’t care about ethics, character, truth, love, caring, grace – they cared about having someone in control calling the shots who recognized and would fight to maintain white better than everything else.

If you support them and voted for people like Trump that was your motivation whether you admit it or not.  All of your excuses are crap and lies to justify your claimed superiority so you can live without contributing but taking from others.

christianity – with a small “c” –  is the religion which created white as a superior race in violation of everything we know to the contrary.  To join this religion and this race you must give up your identity and take on the identity of white.  Did your ancestors come to the United States from France?  They are white in the United States.  Did they come from England?  They are white in the United States.  All you had to do was to take on that white identity and acknowledge that you and yours believe you are better than, prettier than, more educated than, more everything than those others.  It is the religion Roy Moore has espoused for decades.  It is the religion of the evangelicals who have given up Evangelism because they prefer to be better than .  To simply be one of God’s children is not enough.  They must worship god; they must devalue – depose – get rid of God, Jesus, Christ.  They must take the Scriptures and rearrange them so the message fits their heresy.

Especially, it is time for all of us to call out and condemn the sexual abuse Donald Trump has visited against Hillary Clinton from his campaign time – calling for her to be “locked up”  through today when he calls up Hillary to visit this sexual abuse against because he needs a shield and has decided she will be that shield.

These calls for a special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton is nothing more than another segway of the sexual abuse he has carried out from calling for her to be “locked up” for being what – a better candidate?  A better person?  A better president? one who has lived her life giving to others? Hillary Clinton’s very existence is a threat to Donald Trump because he can only abide women who he can reduce to being less than Donald Trump and every other man. So to keep the rest of us in his cloud of denial and abuse he pulls in Hillary’s name for more abuse each time he needs a distraction.  Where are the many, many voice loudly condemning him?  Where are the many many voices removing this turd from office?  Where are the many many voices sending Donald Trump back under the rock from which he crawled to be blinded by the sun.  Does fear stop you?  Take a look inside to make sure it is fear you have to remove and not the remnants of Donald Trump’s character that you share!

These United States have been racist, sexist, homophobic, and more almost from its beginnings.  It was founded on the backs of slaves.  It was founded on the backs of women.  It has not acknowledged and repaid either debt it has only becomes increasingly more sophisticated in using the rest of the world to continue its claimed superiority.  It is time for this to stop.

If these paragraphs sound angry – they are.  WAKE UP AMERICA!  WAKE UP WORLD!  THIS MAN IS VILE – EVIL – AND SPREADING HIS EVIL TRYING TO INFECT EVERYONE WHO SEES HIM AND/OR HEARS HIS VOICE.

We call for Donald Trump to stop this sexual abuse for which he has set an example for the rest of the world to follow.  He has some 17 plus accusations of physical sexual abuse against women.  He has law suits against him by women who claim he sexually abused them.  Every other word out of his mouth is bullying – abusive against women – or self-aggrandizement.  IT IS ENOUGH!

Trump chose Pence for his Vice President as an act of genius.  He knew he needed someone to keep him in office and just as he predicted Pence keeps him in office because we are afraid of exchanging the devil for the devil’s right hand.  It is time to step out and correct this.  Trump has simply made it right for all of the sexual abusers to carry on, ignoring the wrong of what they are doing and continuing to step on women.

He has emboldened people like Roy Moore who needs to crawl back under that rock with Trump.  All across this country Trump has brought men who should be shamed by what they do every day and have done for most of their adult lives into the light and dusted them off sending them out to wreck havoc on the world.  Every single God loving and God fearing person should be standing up, calling him out and also calling out all of those like him to clear away the trash that is cluttering the United States government as well as the rest of the world.

Change your lifestyle.  Comfort at someone else’s expense is not an option.  Where you do not take responsibility for your life as an independent, loving, caring person you are throwing a burden on someone else.

Take a look at the billionaires of the world.  Not one has acquired their billions without lying, cheating and stealing from someone else.  It is no accident that homelessness and our billionaire group arose at the same time.  One is totally connected to the other.  STOP. THIS. INSANITY and this EVIL!

Do you love Hitler and the evil he brought and nurtured?  Do you want to see the dictators of this world continue to survive at the expense of and on the backs of the rest of us? Are you so in love with one man that you want him to be god over you and you this mangod’s servant?  Are you so foolish to think that this man will do anything except destroy you and everything you hold dear?  What is wrong with you Trump followers?  Are you so anxiety ridden, so weak in your identity, so needy that you will accept this happening before your very eyes because it is preferable to rocking the boat?    Don’t you realize your children are watching? Wake up before it is too late.  All of these dictators need to be removed, but none so urgently as Donald J. Trump.

We have revolutions happening all over this world.  All led by someone like Trump and his crowd.  If they win this world changes and not for the better.  Your encouraging Trump and keeping him in control emboldens the ugliness all around the world.  It helps to justify their existence and finally moves them to come together for world control.  It is time to move out of this hole we are digging for ourselves.  Wake UP and ACT!

Weight loss – Health – Beauty

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

by: Marceline Donaldson

Those of you who know me know I am almost passionate about organic everything – especially food.  It is a rare day to come into my home and find food that is not organic.  Yes, it cost more initially – but yes it has benefits which justify the cost and which, in the long run actually show you it costs much less, over the long term,  to eat organically and surround yourself with a total organic life.  Your benefits include better health.

A few of us have just finished a short, but very productive experiment.  We worked together to get everything out of our lives that was not organic – food, cleaning products, cosmetics, etc………….The result?  We lost weight – have more energy – feel better – and our looks, well, let me not brag, but we look sensational!

Now being at that age where hair turns grey – that is where I started.  A couple years ago I started using hair dye.  All during that time I worried and imagined what that was doing to my health and sure enough the literature was showing me horrible possibilities that I could hardly contemplate. It is not for nothing that it is suggested that pregnant women refrain from dying their hair.   None of those possibilities pointed squarely at the hair dye, but they came awfully close.  So, I recently changed to using Henna and other natural herbal possibilities.  It struck me that these are probably what our ancestors used in the dim historic times before the oligarch’s took over this world to make themselves ultra rich and me and those like me ultra poor.

Lots of “I’s” in the above paragraph because “I” am the only one who did the hair thing.  Everyone else continued on with their hair dye.

It has taken a few months to get this Henna thing straight, but I am amazed at the results.  Henna, for those of you who don’t know, is an herb which is commonly used in the middle-east and other places for hair, body decorations, etc.

The first time I tried henna nothing happened.  My hair looked nice, but the color didn’t change.  The next time I poured lost of Apple Cider Vinegar into the Henna 1/4 cup – 1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar made the color work beautifully.  About six weeks later, as the grey started to peep through I used Henna with the addition of a couple of organic eggs.  The results were even better.  I had an uneven hair color which looked sensational.  The ends of my hair were lighter than the rest and all through were these little bits of light.

The third time I used Henna was with the addition of very strong organic chamomile tea and my hair is now multi colors.  Would not have gone for that on purpose, but this accident is incredibly beautiful.  (Sorry, I have never been known for my modesty).  I totally didn’t know what I was doing, but experiment was on the table.  I was trying to eliminate as much of the red as possible and looking for a yellow gold brown combination.  I didn’t get that, but what I did get I like better.  Accidents can be wonderful.

One of our small group got rid of all eggs, milk, butter unless they were from grass-fed cows and organic.  Yogurt was added – but yogurt from goats.  And then the organic coconut oil used as an all over massage oil.  But someone else used Grapeseed oil as a massage oil – and yet someone else used Avocado oil.  Can’t believe how good we look.

I have become addicted to splashing organic whole plant Aloe Vera on my face first thing in the morning and leaving it on adding liquid Vitamin C and Vitamins A and E during the day.  Sometimes I add vitamin B in different forms when I feel stressed out.  Can’t let old age creep in too quickly – and bless you, it is working.  Don’t think I look old.  I think I look about 50 years old.  And isn’t that the age cosmetic people advertise as “old age”?  When I was actually 50 I wasn’t worried about wrinkling, etc. I was still busy “striving”.  Didn’t think I looked old then and neither would those models advertising how 50 is the new 30.  With our regimen 80 is the new 40 and much cheaper.

A side benefit that we all found is the weight loss from this change to organic everything.  We did not set out to lose weight.  That was far from our thoughts although we all needed to lose quite a bit of weight.  There is now no need to go on special diets – no need to eat special “diet foods” – no need to receive those meals from all over the globe to keep your weight down.  Simply make sure that the meat, milk, vegetables, etc. are all organically grown.  And, dessert fits right in.  Nothing like an apple tart made with apples on top of a custard base to make afternoon tea special and weight loss possible if all the ingredients, especially the flour for the tart crust, is organic whole wheat flour.  the story of what sent me from white non-organic flour to organic whole wheat flour is elsewhere in the Bettina Network Blog.  But, be careful, not all organic whole wheat flour is equal.  Some cheat.  That is one problems with organic everything, you have to be conscious of what you eat, cook and give to others because all organics are not equal, some reach that line and barely squeak pass – and they squeak pass only because there are the billionaires who want more and let their greed cheat us out of good, organically grown food.  Aren’t processed foods that which made millionaires by the tens of thousands and dramatically increased the ranks of both the billionaires and the homeless?

The big secret to weight control that we’ve found is starting the day with a very healthy and substantial breakfast.  As we see more and more people we are beginning to be appalled at what today passes for ‘breakfast’.  A sweet roll out of the worst kind of flour and the most over processed sugar on the globe.  However, some aren’t even made of sugar – the processed food people have discovered that fructose corn syrup is cheaper than sugar and goes further and that is what is now used – could over processed and over refined white sugar one day become a ‘health food’ or a ‘historic food’ from the distant past as this trend continues and we become sicker as a world?  And indeed it is a world wide phenomena as copy cats come into existence picking up and producing all of the worst products for our health, but the most financially lucrative.  Is that what is driving the health crisis we are facing and trying to ignore and deny?

Follow our “Health” and “Health and Beauty” blogs and we believe you will be wealthier, wiser and healthier.  A side affect will be your increase in beauty.  You will be wiser because you have to take control and know what you are eating and putting on your skin. – Following the advice of the marketing/advertising people is not an option.  They have a vested interested and not in your health and beauty.  Those healthy and beautiful looking models have had their pictures air brushed and god knows what else has been done to them.  It is no accident that models are now in their early teen years.  The models of old had to be at least 35 to be considered because clothes and other things didn’t look good on you until you reached that point.  Today you are considered old at 40 and many people look the part.  Ask them their lifestyle habits and you will see why.

Going to bed with the birds and getting up with the birds is not a bad habit to cultivate.

In the beginning of your journey into health and fitness being suspicious of even processed foods which look healthy is also not a bad habit to cultivate.  Learn where your food is grown and by who?  Learn the politics behind the foods you are being offered – which means if a particular food is brought to your awareness many times first look to see if a political reason is behind that promoting!  You will be surprised.

We did not always have so many hospitals nor did we have so many people sick and dying.  That is a modern phenomena!  We did not have children’s hospitals because there were not enough sick children to justify such.  The elderly died – they didn’t waste away with awful diseases – and people lived into old age with old age not being into their 40’s and 50’s but into their 80’s, 90’s and beyond.  How do I know?  I lived a life in which I saw all of that and I have seen the development of this new health industry where we are all sick and being sent on a regular basis to the doctor.  We have just discovered the way we sent women to get x-rays to determine if they have breast cancer has helped to cause some women to develop breast cancer.  Take your life and your health into your own hands and stop being led by those who profit from your bodies.

Just as fear created and grew the insurance industry – fear is feeding and growing the “health industry”.

Take a look at the products you use to clean your house! Lethal – with off gases that could take down an ox!  We don’t even know what other kind of ‘products’ we could use to do a better job and which would keep our home clean and its environment healthy.   We have lost that knowledge because we have cut off our family’s advice – we look to those trying to sell us something for advice.  Or we look to our peers who look to those marketing experts.  We need to get out and share with each other what we know that is real.  That knowledge from past generations has all but disappeared so look for those who still have a bit and try it.

One thing wrong with immigrants – some still have that knowledge and it could kill this killer society’s profits.  Try making friends with those who have recently come from other countries, especially if they’ve come from outlying areas rather than overcrowded cities trying to develop western ways.

And more to come from our little band of beauties.

Conspiracy Theory = Smoking Hot!

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

I go along with that conspiracy theory.  Listen to Trump do everything he can to lessen the load on the person arrested for the truck killings.  He has talked enough to prejudice the jury pool nationally; crosses over his constitutional authority by ignoring the separation which should exist between him and the justice dept and interfered with the justice department by threatening to send the guy to Gitmo.  What else is he going to do to make sure this guy does not get a fair trial?  What happens to trials with the jury pool tampered with and the president of the United States weighing in to claim this guy is guilty?  What does Trump have to do and say to see this guy get off with a light sentence, if convicted and/or to see that he does not reach trial, etc.  Wonder if he will come up with other ways to cut this guy loose!

This is so much worse than being president of the U. S. and having been born in Kenya.  Guess Trump is just an infant at these conspiracy theories.

Another Response to Trump

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Wow!  I was glad to see the article by “A Paranoid Reader”.  You can call the reader paranoid, but when I heard about the truck killing all of those people in New York, my first thought is that it was Trump behind that tragedy.

Call it what you may, but I believe that truck incident was done by Trump – his followers – or others in the Trump camp and that thought had popped into my head before I read you article by “A Paranoid Reader” and I am not prone to conspiracy theories.  It certainly distracted from some serious stuff.

From a Paranoid Reader

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Thank you for the article on “The Personification of Evil”.  It was powerful and awesome – especially because of the references you included both on Melania Trump and Joseph McCarthy.  I hadn’t thought about McCarthyism as the genesis of this Trump era, but it makes a lot of sense and clears up much for me.  I knew about Roy Cohn, but this is like weaving – gradually you come up with a beautiful product.

Maybe because I was reading that article when I also noticed news about the truck killing all of those people in New York City that my paranoia started coming out of its closet, but what a distraction away from the Mueller convictions.  It gave Trump a bit of a distraction that he may have hoped would continue and wipe the Mueller headlines out of the media reporting.

My first thought  was – Trump’s direct attempts at distractions didn’t do the job so he got help and his ‘help’ was far more successful.  The New York tragedy certainly wiped Trump off the front pages for a brief time.  Instead of wiping out an immigration program that has had one problem in over 1 million immigrants coming into this country through that program, maybe we need to start a program which sends Trump followers to another country where they can be retrained with exams to pass before they are allowed back into these United States.  Move the prisoners someplace else and take over Rikers Island for that purpose?

Trump set the pattern as he has constantly provided distractions from things happening around his problems so reporters and your average citizen would be distracted – and he has been very good at doing that – which is probably what started my thinking that maybe he was behind this tragedy.  You can’t feel empathy for people if you caused the problem with intent to destroy.

There had to be something very strong to take attention away from the indictments and the Papadopoulos pleading guilty – the truck killings certainly provided that distraction.

Like I said – I am probably very paranoid from all of this Trump business.  I never would have begun to have such thoughts before Trump’s appearance as a presidential candidate and then president.  His ‘reign’ has caused me to think differently about what I read and how I put things together.

Before Trump became president and before his campaign showed itself to be so ugly this is not something I would have thought about nor connections I would have made.

You probably won’t publish this, but I needed to get it said and out of me because it really seems like a serious possibility.

It might not come up to the level of Trump’s “birtherism”, but it is a start.  Maybe I can become a celebrity through such conjectures.

Have we all been made a bit “off” by this president?
