 what in the world is that

we've been waiting a long time for it to show up but....
No, they didn't make hats for their bottles,
this is their NEW Auto-Dosing Technology!
How cool is this?
It fills itself up for you every time

It’s easy to use, too! Just Flip, Dose and Done!
1 flip for regular loads
2 flips for large or extra dirty loads
Easy Peasy!
How many times have you been in a hurry to throw
in a load of laundry and over poured the cap?
Well, I have. I always feel so wasteful.
I try to pour some back into the bottle
but my fingers get slippery and I usually
end up dropping the cap in the washer!
Yeah, it's fun digging it out while the water is filling!
And if I don't drop it, I try to pour some back into
the bottle only to have it dribble down the side :(
This new Self Dosing is awesome!
Easy measure liquid detergent, heck yeah!
Flip, flip and you're done,  ready to go on
to your next chore - yay ;(

The Many Uses for WD-40

What IS The Main Ingredient of WD-40?
Before you read to the end, does anybody know what the main ingredient of WD-40?
No Cheating.....

WD-40 ~ Who knew!

I had a neighbor who bought a new pickup.
I got up very early one Sunday morning and saw that someone had spray painted red all around the sides of this beige truck (for some unknown reason).
I went over, woke him up, and told him the bad news.
He was very upset and was trying to figure out what to do....
probably nothing until Monday morning, since nothing was open.
Another neighbor came out and told him to get his WD-40 and clean it off.
It removed the unwanted paint beautifully and did not harm his paint job that was on the truck. I was impressed!

WD-40 who knew?
"Water Displacement #40".
The product began from a search for a rust preventative solvent and degreaser to protect missile parts.
WD-40 was created in 1953, by three technicians at the San Diego Rocket Chemical Company.
Its name comes from the project that was to find a 'Water Displacement' Compound.
They were finally successful for a formulation, with their fortieth attempt, thus WD-40.
The 'Convair Company' bought it in bulk to protect their atlas missile parts.
Ken East (one of the original founders) says there is nothing in WD-40 that would hurt you.
When you read the 'shower door' part, try it.
It's the first thing that has ever cleaned that spotty shower door.
If yours is plastic, it works just as well as on glass.
It's a miracle!
Then try it on your stovetop.
It's now shinier than it's ever been.
You'll be amazed.

WD-40 Uses:
1. Protects silver from tarnishing.
2. Removes road tar and grime from cars.
3. Cleans and lubricates guitar strings.
4. Gives floor that 'just-waxed' sheen without making them slippery.
5. Keeps the flies off of Cows, Horses, and other Farm Critters, as well. (Ya gotta love this one!!!)
6. Restores and cleans chalkboards.
7. Removes lipstick stains.
8. Loosens stubborn zippers.
9. Untangles jewelry chains.
10. Removes stains from stainless steel sinks.
11. Removes dirt and grime from the barbecue grill.
12. Keeps ceramic / terracotta garden pots from oxidizing.
13. Removes tomato stains from clothing.
14. Keeps glass shower doors free of water spots.
15. Camouflages scratches in ceramic and marble floors.
16. Keeps scissors working smoothly.
17. Lubricates noisy door hinges on both home and vehicles doors.
18. It removes that nasty tar and scuff marks from the kitchen flooring.
It doesn't seem to harm the finish and you won't have to scrub nearly as hard to get them off. Just remember to open some windows if you have a lot of marks.
19. Remove those nasty Bug guts that will eat away the finish on your car if not removed quickly!
20. Gives a children's playground gym slide a shine for a super fast slide.
21. Lubricates gearshift and mower deck lever for ease of handling on riding mowers...
22. Rids kids rocking chair and swings of squeaky noises.
23. Lubricates tracks in sticking home windows and makes them easier to open.
24. Spraying an umbrella stem makes it easier to open and close.
25. Restores and cleans padded leather dashboards in vehicles, as well as vinyl bumpers.
26. Restores and cleans roof racks on vehicles.
27. Lubricates and stops squeaks in electric fans.
28. Lubricates wheel sprockets on tricycles, wagons, and bicycles for easy handling.
29. Lubricates fan belts on washers and dryers and keeps them running smoothly.
30. Keeps rust from forming on saws and saw blades, and other tools.
31. Removes grease splatters from stovetops.
32. Keeps bathroom mirror from fogging.
33. Lubricates prosthetic limbs.
34. Keeps pigeons off the balcony (they hate the smell).
35. Removes all traces of duct tape.
36. Folks even spray it on their arms, hands, and knees to relieve arthritis pain.
37. Florida's favorite use is: 'cleans and removes love bugs from grills and bumpers.'
38. The favorite use in the state of New York, it protects the Statue of Liberty from the elements.
39. WD-40 attracts fish. Spray a little on live bait or lures and you will be catching the big one in no time. Also, it's a lot cheaper than the chemical attractants that are made for just that purpose.
Keep in mind though, using some chemical laced baits or lures for fishing are not allowed in some states.
40. Use it for fire ant bites. It takes the sting away immediately and stops the itch.
41. It is great for removing crayon from walls. Spray it on the marks and wipe with a clean rag.
42. Also, if you've discovered that your teenage daughter has washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of laundry, saturate the lipstick spots with WD-40 and rewash. Presto! The lipstick is gone!
43. If you spray it inside a wet distributor cap, it will displace the moisture, allowing the engine to start.

As for that Basic, Main Ingredient.......
Well.... it's FISH OIL....

#Garcinia Cambogia Extract Review

What is Garcinia Cambogia Extract?

A natural Fat Blocker - prevents the synthesis of fat from food and converts food into good cholesterol.

Appetite Suppressant – helps the body to produce the energy it needs from existing extra fat (burning fat) and utilizes it to control body food intake.

Increased Serotonin Levels – balances the mood for emotional eaters and helps to control stress
After using this product as directed, for about 2 weeks now, I am finding that I am less hungry. I'm not a "scale watcher" but have noticed my clothing fitting better and feeling more comfortable.
Since I'm a stress eater I'm sure having my
Serotonin levels increased has helped greatly. 
I love that it is a natural source of calcium.
Seems we can never get enough of that.

Doing the Rain Dance

YES, that is RAIN you see!
 We had a few nice storms that lasted about 3 weeks on and off.
We received a few inches of much needed rain...still not enough to help out with the drought but any amount is more than welcomed at this point!
The ground soaked it up, with that much needed
 fresh drink of rain water my gardens stood up straight.....
for a while at least.
High winds kicked in during and
after the storms came through.
 We heard a huge crash after dark one night 
and ran out back to see what it was.
All we could see were the ends of what looked
like a small branch from our neighbors
Weeping Willow hanging off the edge of the deck roof.
 The roof over our deck is metal and it makes
 things sound louder than they actually are.

Or so we thought at the time.
 The next morning revealed branches all over my yard.
 The one you see here hanging was a small branch
that landed on the deck roof.
 After T pulled it off I could see there was something
else still on the roof.
It turned out to be a much LARGER branch!
Luckily it was the deck roof and not the house roof.

After struggling for a bit, it was finally pulled off
and drug around to the street for Yard Waste pick up.

All I can say is I'm glad I got all my pruning done early.
We also fixed fence just in time prior to the storms.
We didn't lose ours, but some of our neighbors did.
Whew, glad it wasn't us, but feel so bad for my neighbors who lost several sections.
The rain has stopped and there doesn't seem to be any in the forecast. Just praying it returns, we still need a lot more.

And God Looked Down upon Seniors...

And God Looked Down upon Seniors...

Most seniors never get enough exercise.  So, in his wisdom, God decreed that seniors would become forgetful and they would have to search for their glasses, keys, and other things misplaced and move around more.  And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God saw there was yet another need.  So, God in his wisdom, made seniors lose coordination and they would drop things which would require them to bend, reach and stretch.  And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the functioning of senior bladders and decided, in His wisdom, there might be calls of nature more frequently requiring more walking to the relief station which would burn calories.  God looked down and saw that it was good.
 Seniors were obliged to exercise more from these senior shortcomings and did become more active as a result.  So if you find you are required to get up and down more as you age, remember it's God's will and in your best interest, even though you mutter under your breath.

Let it be!  And it is good.
