Super-bacteria and super-essential oils to the rescue


There are now stains of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.
Read the above sentence again.
Think about how a bacterial infection may affect you and your household.

This is an unfavorable, critical predicament for us (mankind) to be without antibiotics to counter the effects of a bacterial infection.

Read about drug-resistance infectious diseases from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Personally, I believe it would be in our best interest to look into essential oils.
Why?

1. Because certain essential oils have strong anti-bacterial chemical properties, and,

2. Bacteria can't build or form resistant to essential oils. Essential oils (they're called oils but they really aren't oily like vegetable oils) contain hundreds of natural chemical compounds which make it impossible for any bacteria strain to become resistant to the many chemical compounds in a single oil.  The major two or three chemical compounds of an oil are normally listed, but an oil is made of hundreds of chemicals, and,

3. Each season the oil is slightly different in it's chemical composition due to the masterful design of the Creator making essential oils even more difficult for any super-bacteria to ever become resistant to the anti-bacterial chemical properties of an essential oil which we get from plants.
Essential oils are the best alternative.

Always utilize essential oils with extreme caution as essential oils are very potent and very concentrated chemical substances. Be advised that these are not to be played with or used without proper education and experience.
A drop or two can do wonders, and a drop or two can cause much discomfort if not utilized correctly and properly.  Seek immediate medical attention should essential oils cause any adverse reaction.
Keep away from the eyes and other mucus membranes.
Do not ingest without professional advice.
Extreme caution if using around children, the elderly, sickly, in pregnancy or with other serious health issues.

Oh, those Game Show Hosts

There have been quite a few televised game shows and game show hosts over the years.

I did a quick research and was surprised to find over 250 names on this list of game show hosts . (these game shows aired in the United States).

Did you know Who Do You Trust? was a game show hosted by Johnnie Carson hosted with Ed McMahon as announcer before their Tonight Show gig?

And, Carmen Electra hosted a game show called Singled Out. This game has lots of players.





And, William Shatner hosted Show Me the Money. 
This game show showcased twelve Million Dollar Dancers. Even William dances.
The contestant answers a question then chooses a dancer and asks them to Show Me the Money.
This game has some big money in play.




Even Mike Wallace, Walter Conkite and Hugh Downs were game show hosts at one time.

My favorite game show hosts-Allen Ludden
                                                Chuck Barris 
                                                Art Fleming
                                        and, Bill Cullen.

I can't mention game shows without mentioning Merv Griffith.
He started as a singer before he became involved in creating game shows.
He started on a game show called Play Your Hunch, produced by Mark Goodson and Bill Todman Productions.

And, it wouldn't be right to forget the announcers of The Price is Right. "Come on down!" My favorite announcer was Johnny Olson, who was the announcer on over 30 game shows and was the very first announcer on the Price is Right.

There's even a Game Show Network, devoted to nothing but game shows-old and new.The newest game show, Hellevator, was added to the GSN lineup and it's hosted by the Soska sisters. 
This game is in the horror game show category.


Here's a listing of game shows that have or are currently airing on American television.
(This listing of games includes-panel games, dating/relationship games, kids, teens and college games, and reality games and games aired specific to certain regions or States).

Game shows remain popular because you never know what will be said while watching the hosts conduct contestants through challenges or questions playing a game to win or lose money. The contestants have no scripts and the outcome of their choices can make them either game winners or losers.

Play on!

Drafts- and more drafts

Like I said, I've not been blogging as much as I used to,
 but I have been jotting down ideas for blog posts.


I have a good list of blog drafts I have yet to complete and post.
The topics are across the board from your heart, friends, your attitude,
the Confederate flag, animals, and more.

I just need to finish each draft, add images and or video that would compliment
the topic, edit and post.

This looks like a quiet place to write.

Sounds easy. But if it's too easy I have to make it
difficult.

Totally into Hello Kitty

There are some who adore kittens and some who can't get quite enough Hello Kitty.


Hello Kitty is BIG! and not showing any signs of slowing any time soon.

Hello Kitty is everywhere! I'm not surprised there isn't a Hello Kitty house.
Wait! There is a Hello Kitty house.

Here's Hello Kitty's family.

You can even have Hello Kitty in your green tea.

I came across some interesting things out there for those who must have their Hello Kitty® fix
satisfied in a big way.

Restaurant- You can eat in 'Hello Kitty' style.

A girl can sleep, wear, eat, drink, wake up to, fall asleep on, walk on, be adorned by, carry, tell time on, etc. Hello Kitty. Hello Kitty is a way of life and making many girls and women happy.

There are two destination theme parks for those who need to be surrounded for taking in all the Hello Kitty one can imagine.

Eat your heart out Mickey!

Theme park.  Japan
Theme park.  China

There's probably lots more, but that's enough Hello Kitty pinkness for this blog post.

One Week- Early Fall, 2015

I haven't been blogging regularly and that bothers me because I like to write.

I have too many daily 'to-dos' on my plate, so some things get put off for a while.
Come to think of it, it's been a while since I've gotten an email from one of my favorite writers.
Maybe he's not been writing regularly either. His book,"Out Where the Buses Don't Run', is good.

Life seems to get crazier and busier in spite of all the modern conveniences we have. I don't see
my daily schedule slowing down. And everyone I know seems to be just as busy.
It's mid-afternoon and I haven't been outside to see about the goat. I'm sure she needs water,
and food, of course, even though she has plenty to grass to nibble on. And Zeus. He's 21 years old and he's not doing much more than sleeping day and night.

This is my week of vacation and it's half over and so far I've spent it being downright lazy.
I'm busy all day, but when I look around I can't see what I've been so busy doing.
So I thought I'd make myself a list of things to get done. That didn't work either.

But is has been quiet, relaxing, and I'm enjoying the peacefulness of not having to think about
going in to work. That alone has been delightful for me emotionally and physically. I've been enjoying sleeping at night like a regular person, and waking up when I've had sufficient sleep.

My stay-cation has been lovely, however I wanted to get more things accomplished while I'm home
day and night.
I still have a few more days to myself, so I if I apply myself I can get a few tangible items accomplished.

Writing this blog is one of a dozen things I want to get done. I still want to clean out my little shed, clean the inside of my vehicles, wash mold off the siding, wash the SunPorch, and pull up weeds in the garden.

And today just happens to be my birthday, though it doesn't feel anything like a birth day should
 feel. But that's okay. I'm not complaining. And I have received 'Happy Birthday' wishes from five people.

I need to do something nice for someone on my birthday. That will make my complete.

I must end for now to get busy on my list. And if all goes well, I'll can some persimmon jam and squash and okra and juice some carrots later and I want to go through the old family photo album
to find pictures of me as a Camp Fire girl.  I'm considering purchasing an old Camp Fire Girl book I saw on Amazon.
I wish I could locate my blue vest with my beads I earned.

Makes me want that teepee I've wanted since I moved to the country.

Maybe one day. Just maybe one day.

Thank you Lord for allowing me to be well to enjoy another birthday.
