Spring cleaning!

So some of my blogs are basically dead and getting no action at all and I have come to see that I have too much on my plate right now. So, its time for a little remod here at the studio. Look for old blogs to be reborn soon. And hopefully to more popular pages with less need for maintenance. #remix

Rehydrate Often

One of my hobbies is science and I have been experimenting with natural remedies to relieve some of my illnesses. Since I have been living below the poverty level my whole life and see no end in sight, it is more than necessary to diagnose my own ills and treat them the best I can.

Dehydration is a big problem for me and moisturisers are a necessity. (Look at me with all the big words pouring out.) I prefer to use moisturising wipes that are antibacterial and fragrance free if I can find them, but rubbing alcohol and a wash cloth can make a good substitute if needed.

Also I have a caffeine addiction that causes a lot of grief as caffeine dehydrates and I have to rehydrate after it wears off. Refilling a pop bottle with clean water and chilling it can help relieve the thirst that follows a caffeine crash and the Charley horse that usually follows a night of work in a hot store. One twenty ounce bottle of water after work can keep me from having to walk in the house with a cane in the morning.  

Water is best for rehydration of course but can be hard to drink if not chilled, so I sometimes add those little Mio flavors (or an equivalent) to it or just buy the flavored water. (I prefer the coconut flavored ones or Black Cherry.) Another good source of hydration is Powerade or Gatorade of course, and these treatments can help replace other important things in the body as well. Also, plus points for sugar fix. While they have sodium in them they are still healthier than soda pop.

Also, if you do not have a pool or spa, be sure to soak in a tub every now and then, this helps to rehydrate the outer layer. Not talking about your daily bath here, just soak up some clean H2O when you get the chance. It is also a great way to cool off in the heat.

The thirst that comes with summer heat or winter winds is always a problem and rehydration is key to a healthy life. Someone once said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" and it still applies today.

Until next time, keep it wet.

NATURAL REMEDIES FOR ASTHMA

Asthma is an episodic constriction of the bronchial tubes. It is a common disorder of both children and adults, often regarded as mysterious and frustrating to treat.


The condition is marked by wheezing (especially on expiration), coughing, and difficulty in breathing. Asthma can appear and disappear without warning. If an attack is severe enough, it can kill.


The immediate cause of an asthmatic attack is tightening of the muscular bands that regulate the size of the bronchial tubes. These muscles are controlled by nerves, but what triggers the nerves to make airways constrict inappropriately is not clear. The triggers for asthma can be primarily allergic or primarily emotional or induced by exercise or respiratory infection, or it can occur with no obvious causes. It is now being considered an inflammatory disorder.
The "hygiene hypothesis" is a proposed explanation for why allergies and asthma are now epidemic, especially in developed countries. The hypothesis holds that children who grow up in crowded and dirtier environments are less likely to develop these ailments than youngsters raised in cleaner, more protected environments. The idea is that the developing immune systems of less privileged kids are exposed to lots of germs from an early age and so become stronger and more protective of health. The hypothesis recently got a big boost in credibility. Researchers at Duke University Medical Center compared the antibodies in the blood of laboratory rats and mice, which grow in a virtually germ-free environment, with those of wild rats and mice. All of the wild rodents had higher levels of IgG and IgE, classes of antibodies associated with immune and allergic diseases, but the wild rodents' antibodies did not tend to bind to the rat's own cells, as did the antibodies produced by the hygienically raised rodents. Instead, the wild rodents' antibodies efficiently and effectively attacked invading organisms. The research was written up in the August, 2006, Scandinavian Journal of Immunology.
Despite this intriguing evidence, we need a lot more proof from human studies before the hygiene hypothesis makes the leap from theory to fact, and I wouldn't worry about a home being "too clean." In fact, random pollution of the home environment has its own drawbacks. Children who breathe secondhand smoke are more likely to develop asthma, and among all youngsters with asthma, those who breathe secondhand smoke have more frequent attacks).

Relief may be in your cupboard...

My past has made me who I am

My past has made me who I am. I cant change it. We can only go forward in time. We shape our lives with the decisions we make. Our future, our destiny is not predetermined.

2009

DON'T PANIC

Sometimes things seem much worse than they really are. like you might wake up one day and find out that the world is going to be destroyed to make way for a new hyper space freeway or some thing. the thing is no matter how bad it seems to get, don`t panic, because there`s always tomorrow. well, unless you live in that story the hitchhiker`s guide, then you`re screwed.

Life, love, and lemonade

Sometimes life gives you lemons; thats the time to make lemonade. sometimes life gives you love; thats the time to enjoy the brief ride while it lasts; sometimes life gives you bills; thats the time to make a nice campfire.

Blogging 101

So you want to write a blog. Where to start? Where to start? The best place to start is at the beginning. Out of all the blogs I have started, my favorite site for blogging is Blogger. Its easy to navigate and easy to tweak. The WYSIWYG design is awesome and most importantly it is so damn easy to add AdSense to it. I have tried some other sites, but most often end up on Blogger simply because I am almost always logged in to Google anyway. Where you set up your blog is your choice, but you may want to try many different sites like I did.  

2. Now that you have a site picked out you need to start blogging. Content is king and if you dont write anything what will people read when they drop in? Write a lot and write often.

c. Once you have a blog with posts in it, you may want people to read it. This isnt something that will just happen you know. You need to spend a little time promoting your work every day you possibly can. Start with Twitter or Facebook for example and let your friends know that you just published a post. BTW congrats on your new job title Mr. or Miss Publisher.    

1. There are many great ways to advertise your blog and bring traffic in to it, like for example, Twitterfeed or Webring. Joining a web ring will let readers of similar sites find you and increase your audience, and Twitterfeed will share your posts automatically to Twitter or Facebook for you with no sweat broken on your part...

3. Another way to find readers or should I say let readers find you is a Facebook page for your blog. Twitterfeed can post to the page for you again leaving you free to do more writing and less promoting.

Note: dont forget to add Adsense to your blog, even if you try affiliate programs on the side, Adsense will run itself once its installed and it pays more than any affiliate programs I have tried...

Finally, if you have a Youtube channel you can add your videos to your blog quick and easy and in fact, you can have an entire post in your blog as a Youtube video. This will not only keep your blog moving but also, keep your YT channel from collecting dust as well.

Rest in Peace Captain Nimoy.

He always was and always will be our friend. We cried when he died and we cried when he came back and damn it Jim, we cried when he died again.

Leonard Nimoy was certainly not your average actor by a long shot and Ambassador Spock was certainly not your run of the mill alien.

We cussed the screen when Spock died in that nuclear reactor and we swore off ever watching another ST movie, but then they brought him back and everything was all better. Spock touched more lives than any alien in history at a time when the world needed an outsider who could make us all feel more human. We will never forget the amazing actions of Spock or the amazing actor who mind melded him into our hearts.  

Of all the souls we encountered on our journeys into televised entertainment, his was by far, the most human. It will take time to heal the wounds in our hearts left by the absence of this noble human being who reminded us that inside the color of our blood is the same, unless of course, you are a Vulcan.

He lived long and prospered greatly and he taught us what it means to be human. Rest in peace Captain Nimoy. You will be sorely missed.
