39 DEGREES outside!!! omg!//eating leftovers from the festival//fishoil pill makes me sick

joke:  a man's age according to a trip to home depot.  its 39 degrees outside!!!  omg!  where did that come from. sitting around eating rye toast and returning calls.  sent the joke to some alive friends and left it in some boxes.  put the sweaters on the dogs and the smaller one stayed outside most of the day, lying in the sun.  the little one is similar to me, independent and loves to be outside, kind of aloof except when sleeping, then she cuddles.  the bigger one is the exact opposite, very dependent and a total companion - if i'm inside, then she is inside and i don't think she is all that fond of the outdoors at all.  
 
this side of life is disturbing for totally different reasons than any of the other sides.  at this age, you actually wonder who is still alive and who still has their health or their brain. so odd.  i never thought like that at all about people, even five years ago.  i remember when bobm and his wife got sick and his niece insisted she had seen this too many times before (she is the youngest in her extended family), that older people don't recover.  she was sure bobm and his wife wouldn't recover.    actually, bobm and his wife, DID recover, but he isn't the same at all - he can't work anymore and his wife had already retired as a nurse.  the niece was so sure of it, and i was amazed because she is younger than me, and she already knew with certainty that older people don't get better.  they don't recover.  they can't.  she kept trying to convince me of this.    she is married with 3 boys, who would be in their teens by now - that is her support, after bobm and his wife are gone.   it was all very sad and then they DID get better and ironically, its their daughter in miami who has had schizophrenia her entire life [one twin has it and the other twin doesn't, and they are identical twins (how is that possible?)] who is taking care of them.  he is also driving again, which NO ONE expected.  yay them.  
 
nowadays i'd want to ask bobm if the twin with schizophrenia ate a lot of processed food, because so much illness is caused by the pesticides in the foods in usa.  the round-up pesticide started in the 70's and the pesticides INJECTED into the seeds became legal in 1999.  they claim if that food isn't banned 50 percent of the population will have autism and the other 50 percent cancer, if the pesticides aren't banned here, just like they are in other countries.  
the people i was sitting with at the church christmas festival travel a lot and were in turkey recently, they said the food was incredibly better than our's because none of the gmo stuff is allowed.  you can taste the difference.  his wife had polyps and she claims just by going organic, the polyps went away.  all clear.  (after polyps you get colon cancer, so she was thinking well, this is the end, and then she beat it).  she says even vitamins that have soy in them, are bad for you, so you have to read the ingredients on viatmins as well.  they are from frisco originally (california - always surprises me when anyone from california moves here.  its prettier over there).   
i'm still sniffling a bit and sore throat.  weird, it just lingers.  i guess its my low hemoglobin not letting me heal?  kind of dragging.  ate leftovers from the christmas festival.  yum.  only slept six hours because i finally got into the book called "the help" after the first chapter, the slang isn't as extreme because its written first person from each character as the story progresses (the same way stephen king wrote the stand and i'm reading this book the same way, one character at a time, instead of the sequence the editor put together), so it became interesting when in more normal english.  was up until 4 a.m. reading it and again after i got up while sitting in the sun by my favorite window (too cold to be outside) - shouldn't really read when i have appointments - i lose track of time.  had ambrosia left as well and normal flan with caramel.  yay!  big fan of both.  stopped taking fish oil vitamin because it was upsetting my stomach.

Yea, our food is killing us. Nobody cares either! We have to advocate for ourselves around here!! In this WHOLE COUNTRY, actually. As you said, people in other Countries do not have the cancer problems we have, or the mental illness issues in such large number. It\'s very sad, but our government, CDC....whatever, just doesn\'t seem to want to show us that they will remove dangerous toxins from our foods to protect us. Very, very sad. I\'ve had this discussion on other posts. It always turns out with most people agreeing that toxins, pesticides and many vaccines are the root cause of much of the autoimmune stuff we get sick with. Can\'t do anything about it!!

Eat healthy! Cook as much \"preservative free\" stuff you can. Buy \"fresh/organic\" when you can. All we can do is try. Drink a lot of water. And don\'t be fooled by the words \"Spring Water\" they\'re allowed to print that on bottles whether it\'s true or not. POLAND SPRING is actually spring water.

I fact check! xo

culligan is one of the only bottled spring waters that doesn\'t have fluoride in it. you have to watch for that too. our country has used fluoride in the water since 1977 as a way to sedate the country. hitler did the same thing when he was taking over germany in the 1930\'s. its totally sick that it is in alllll of our water and doesn\'t do ANYTHING helpful at all. its all just propaganda.

I never gave processed food much thought, until reading your journal. Fish oil is hard on your stomach. The doctor told my hubby to take it.It repeated on him something terrible. He had to stop taking it.

Food in Europe tastes better because they cook it differently and it is fresher. They do not buy like we do, then store it in the fridge or freeze it. The fruits are ripened on the tree. Anyway for any vitamins, I do not take them. We had a documentary on Vitamins. It was on the CBC network called the Magic Pill. You should try watching it on the internet. It just validated what I was saying for years. Useless and dangerous at times too. If you eat right you do not need all those extras. Fish oil did not improve the health of those who took it. Hugs.
