Go some pork!

This H1N1 virus, or "swine flu", is going to do to the hog market what mad cow disease did to the beef market a few years ago. Since pork is our livlihood, this has really hit home for us. So far, all the media has done is instill fear. Yes, take precautions; I realize it's real. However, you can't catch this by eating pork!

What a cool Dad!

The boys were playing out back and waiting for their Dad to get home from work at any minute. If you know anything about them, they are crazy about their Dad! All of the sudden, they heard a loud HONK! out front. He had driven a firetruck home to surprise the boys and take them for a ride. They quickly put down their Nerf guns, ditched the neighbor boy (sorry Brad!) and hopped in.

Snackin' on Playdoh

I mixed up a batch of edible playdoh last night. Isaac was totally into it and played for about an hour. Andrew, upon realizing it was edible, had himself a snack. :) His was gone before I had time to get the cookie cutters out of the pantry... Isaac took a few nibbles here and there, but even saved some of his to play with again. [And for the record, this was last night, not 2006. I need to figure out how to disable the date on my camera since it keeps changing.]

Here's the recipe:

Combine equal parts peanut butter, powdered milk, and honey. Mix well. I also added a spoonful of flour to make it less sticky. Enjoy!

Santa Maria

After Andrew's visit to the specialist in Columbus, we went downtown to check it out a bit. They have a replica of the Santa Maria ship Christopher Columbus sailed. Unfortunately, the exhibit doesn't open until mid-April, but we at least got to see the outside. I expected it to be much bigger, but this is to scale.

God's Pharmacy

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

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 frui ts 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.

I just thought this was cool! What do you think?
