Key Ring Holder Danger

There is a syndicate of criminals presenting themselves as sales promoters who are giving free key-rings holders at gas stations or parking lots.

The key ring has a tracking device chip which allows them to follow you.

Please, please don’t accept them. They select their seemingly well-to-do potential victims, and if you accept, then you will be in for their tricks.

The key holders are very beautiful to resist accepting, but remember you may end up paying more than the key holder, including the risk to your life. Please advise your family members, email contacts, and friends as well.

God’s Amazing Pharmacy

A friend sent this to me. It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish… All before making a human. He made and provided what we’d need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw.  We’re such slow learners…

God left us a great clue as to what foods help what part of our body!


God’s Pharmacy!

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… And YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums.  Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?  It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Bee Sting Remedy

Bee Stings
(sent by a friend who has a daughter who is a doctor of medicine)

It might be wise to carry a penny in your pocket while working in the yard

A couple of weeks ago, I was stung by both a bee and a hornet while working in the garden.  My arm swelled up, so I went to the doctor.  The clinic gave me a cream and an antihistamine.  The next day the swelling was getting progressively worse, so I went to my regular doctor.  The arm was infected and need an antibiotic.  The doctor told me “Next time you get stung, put a penny on the bite for 15 minutes”.

That night, my niece was stung by two bees.  I looked at the bite and it had already started to swell.  So, I taped a penny to her arm for 15 minutes.  The next morning there was no sign of a bite.  We decided that she just wasn’t allergic to the sting.

Later, I was gardening and got stung again.  Twice by a hornet on my let hand.  I though, here I go again to the doctor for another antibiotic.  But I promptly go my money out and taped two pennies to my bites, then sat and sulked for 15 minutes.  The penny took the sting out of the bite immediately.

In the meantime, the hornets were attacking and my friend was stung on the thumb.  Again, the penny.

The next morning I could only see the spot where the hornet had stung me.  No redness, so swelling.  My friend’s sting was the same; couldn’t even tell where she had been stung.  She got stung again a few days later on her back while cutting grass.   And the penny worked once again.

Wanted to share this marvelous information in case you experience the same problem.  We need to keep a stock of pennies on hand.

The doctor said that the copper in the penny counteracts the bite.  It definitely works!

A Great Tip for Your Dryer

A great tip for your Dryer

The guy from Maytag went into the dryer and pulled out the lint filter. It was clean. She says she always cleans the lint from the filter after every load of clothes. (I do too)

He told her that he wanted to show her and her hubby something. He took the filter over to the sink and ran hot water over it. Now, this thing is like a mesh – I’m sure you know what your dryer’s lint filter looks like – WELL……she said that the hot water just laid on top of the mesh!!! It barely dripped through it at all!! He told them that dryer sheets cause a film over that mesh and that’s what burns out the heating unit. You can’t SEE the film, but it’s there.

He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush (or other brush) at least every six months. Of course if you use the liquid softener, this doesn’t apply..does it?? Might not hurt to check anyhow..

He then told her that doing that makes the life of the dryer a lot longer and uses A LOT LESS ELECTRICITY!

I certainly didn’t know dryer sheets would do that. Now you all know me and how I doubt all that junk people send us from the internet that once you check with, you find out is just not true…WELL…this time I didn’t check with SNOPES..figured I’d try it myself…so I got out my filter, ran water thru it…OR TRIED TO…but the water pretty much laid on top of the filter..very little went through..soooooooooo I got a toothbrush (not mine of course..I used Davids…KIDDINGGGGGGGG…it was an old one..lolol) and ran hot soapy water over the filter and scrubbed the daylights out of it..and now the water runs thru it like a champ..

The Maytag guy told my friend that the companies don’t want to tell you about that little trick because they won’t be selling heating units

As often..LOL.. ohhhhhh how wonderful corporate America can be….anyhow…hope this is good info for all of you…I sure liked getting it

Locked Key in Car?

Locked your keys in your car????  Did you know this??
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone on your (or someone else’s) cell phone.


Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the other person at your home press the unlock button of your key fob (clicker), holding it near the phone on their end. Your car doors will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.
Distance is no object you could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk!). 

It works fine! We tried it out, and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!

I locked the car had my youngest daughter call me while I was far away from the car. I clicked open into the phone and I could hear the car doors unlock through her cell phone. My daughter confirmed that sure enough the doors opened.

Mobile Phone Tips

Here is something worth knowing if you have a mobile phone…. 

Have you ever wondered why phone companies don’t seem interested in trying to prevent the theft of mobile phones? If you have ever lost, or had one stolen, and if you are on a plan, you still have to pay the plan approximately up to 24 months, and you have to buy another handset and enter into another contract. This is more revenue for the phone company. 

There is a simple way of making lost or stolen mobiles useless to thieves and the phone companies know about it, but keep it quiet. 

To check your mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following on your phone: star-hash-zero-six-hash ( * # 0 6 # ) and a fifteen digit code will appear on the screen. This is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it safe. 

Should your mobile phone get stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset, so even if the thief changes the sim card, your phone will be totally useless. 

You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. If everybody did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones. You may want to send this to as many people with mobiles as possible. 

No charge for directory assistance Phone companies are charging us $1.00 or more for 411 – information calls.

When you need to use the 411 / information option! Simply dial1-800-FREE-411 or 1 800 373 3411 without incurring a charge.
