Great to be back................

 Up and Running again......

I'm home and so excited! The smell of the tree's and flowers and just can't get enough... The sounds of the birds and the squirrels in the tree's... My morning coffee looking out over the valley and the mountains, even the ground under my feet with the sound it makes as you walk over it, never really noticed this before now, but after walking on the black top and finished surfaces in California I even notice the pleasure of the sound beneath my feet. lol 

I look forward to getting back on track with blogging and posting what I can for the greater good in helping us all become more Self Reliant no matter where we live!

My trip was so awesome, My time spent with family was the best! I  If only I could have stuffed my nephew in my luggage and convinced about 30 people to move to the wilds of Northern Idaho!!!

The hugs and kisses I got from my granddaughters was so awesome, those precious little faces were the best! When I walked in my door they had made a beautiful banner welcoming grandma home in my kitchen, with a big bouquet of sun flowers (my favorite).
Lesley had put some half & half, sharp Cheddar and a few other things in my fridge so I could enjoy my morning coffee and a few snacks just the way I like it.... A women blessed is what I am! A simple life full of joy, peace and a simple life.

I fell asleep cozy in my own bed while chating with my hubby. Sorry I pooped out so early on him, he just made everything so cozy for me!

Great trip but so.... happy to be home!

Get Rid of Ants Miracle Solution

Get Rid of Ants Miracle Solution

This is a miracle recipe for getting rid of those pesky ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, put the solution on and they will be gone.

1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons boric acid
3 cups warm water

1. Mix the sugar and boric acid well.
2. Add the warm water slowly, mixing all the while so it won't be too lumpy.
3. Store in a jar until ready to use.
4. When ready to use, put cotton into the top of a jar lid to fill it and then saturate the cotton to the top.
5. Place it in the location where it is needed.
6. Note: This solution will keep for a long while. A good technique is to drip a drop or two over the edge of the lid to rest on the counter so the ants will find the solution sooner. It sometimes takes a little while for them to find it, but find it they will. When they do, do not disturb them as they drink. They will hang over the edge of the lid and drink for a while and then take it back to the nest killing the colony. Almost overnight they will be gone.

private email I was sent...

 This is a private email I was sent. I can't say how much validity this carries, 
but found it interesting and
 a little disturbing. SRN

 This is not a maybe sometime in the future piece of information. They are doing it right now.

 A couple of days ago as I was driving, I passed a state trouper car, setting in a hidden spot, well after dark, and  the an evening was overcast. I  was doing the speed limit, but he pulled out and began following me as soon as I passed. This was about a half mile from a neighbors place, so I pulled into my neighbors to ask him to come work for me the next day.

We talked for 10 minutes before I continued on my way, only to be stopped about a mile further up the highway. This is how the conversation went.

The cop came up along the right side of my pickup, shined his flashlight in my eyes and told me to put both hands out the driver side window. After I complied he came around to talk, and my question was. Have things gotten this bad? He answered Yes. Then asked why I had pulled into the neighbors place, BUT HE NAMED THE RESIDENTS OF THAT PLACE. He didn't have his lights on, and was following at a fair distance, so this question should not  have been asked. Mind you, this is remote country at the northern edge of Idaho, and we rarely see state troupers up here, so it wouldn't be normal for him to know the name of local residents! The local sheriff does most of the patrol in this area. But this state trouper knew the residents name.

Then he told me he stopped me because I had the pickup tailgate down and it was hard to read the license plate.

He was actually quite nice and very talkative, and I was congenial, so he enjoyed bragging a bit after checking my driver license, insurance papers etc and finding all in order. So he asked where I lived and I told him  at the address on my license. "What color house?" I said green but you can't see it from the road. He said yes I can. With the border patrol drones flying at 9,000 feet up there continually, I can see every house at any time, see people coming and going, track all the traffic, no matter where they go, etc, etc.

 I said you have a TV in your car that shows all that? He said he did  and had enough electronics in that car to "cook a chicken". Thanks to Obamanation, we have GPS numbers for every house in the nation now, and with this snooping power they can stop someone miles from home, and look at their house while looking at his ID!

And most of the patriots of this  nation have had the false notion that they would be able to grab a pack sack and rifle and run into the woods when things blow sky-high in this country. Sorry folks. Our only hope of beating this will have to come from a  power that is higher than their drones!

Get in the habit of asking for His  Holy help now, so he knows who you are when trouble gets so big that help is mandatory!

I wrote the previous email as soon as I read the first few lines of this one you sent. The trouper verified it all a few days before I got your information!

Thanks for another great share Sheri :)
1. Antioxidants – These help to wrangle the hoards of free radicals in your system. Free radicals have an uneven number of electrons and like to balance themselves out by stealing from other molecules and cells in your body. These cells are oftentimes very important ones dealing with your DNA, and when they are destroyed, disease steps in. Pomegranate juice is an excellent source of antioxidants that work to help you stay disease-free.

2. Blood Thinner – Pomegranate juice helps your blood circulation, making it easier for blood to travel to your heart, brain, and the rest of your body.

3. Cancer Fighter – Pomegranate has been known to reduce and prohibit the growth of cancer cells and tumors in your body.

4. Digestion Aide – Pomegranate juice is a natural remedy for diarrhea, dysentery, and great number of other digestive problems.

5. Anemia Relief – With a high content of iron, pomegranate juice is a great home cure for anemia because it promotes higher levels of hemoglobin.

6. Anti-Inflammatory – Pomegranate juice has properties that help treat sufferers of arthritis. It can also help cure a cough or sore throat.

7. Neonatal Care – It has been proven that pomegranate juice ingested by pregnant women can help protect the neonatal brain.

8. Artery Protection – It helps keep plaque from building up in your arteries.

9. Cartilage Protection – It works to prevent the deterioration of cartilage in your body.

10. Cholesterol Reducer – Pomegranate juice is capable of lowering blood pressure by as much as 6% in daily drinkers.

Five natural blood thinners

Bye bye Coumadin, so long Plavix - Say hello to five natural blood thinners that protect against strokes and blood clots 


The November 2011 edition of the New England Journal of Medicine reports that most emergency hospital visits for the elderly are caused by side effects and overdosing from taking blood thinners to prevent strokes and blood clots. Conventional doctors wait until you're at risk of a stroke or have had your first stroke to prescribe blood thinners in hopes of preventing additional strokes. What they don't warn you about are the serious possible side effects from these drugs including internal bleeding, stomach ulcers, muscle aches and pains, headaches with dizziness, kidney failure and a boat load of other negatives that can destroy your health. However, there are several natural substances that possess powerful anti-inflammatory properties and also help to thin the blood. These herbs can also produce their own side effects and should not be taken in combination with pharmaceutical drugs. Don't take any unfamiliar medicinal herb unless supervised by a well-trained herbalist or natural health practitioner.


Used in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years, the richly golden spice turmeric is hailed for it's ability to reduce pain and inflammation. Recent studies have revealed that its pain-killing properties compare with those of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs; however, turmeric does not cause the internal bleeding and digestive upset or toxicity to the liver that is found in some cases of individuals taking NSAIDs.


Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapples that also has anti-inflammatory properties and is especially helpful in reducing pain and stiffness associated with arthritis when taken on an empty stomach. Its action is enhanced when taken in combination with turmeric and ginger. Additionally, bromelain is a wonderful digestive enzyme when taken with meals and helps break down proteins, protecting against the formation of uric acid crystals, which are responsible for causing gout and certain types of kidney stones.


bloodGinger is one of the royal ancient spices of India, China and Japan whose action works to reduce inflammation of the joints and muscles as well as strengthening the immune system and reducing digestive upsets and vomiting. Ginger has been used medicinally for thousands of years and is most effective when used raw in a hot tea; however, it is also helpful when taken in powdered supplements.


Garlic favorite spice for many people -- and a popular healing agent around the world -- garlic is not only a potent anti-inflammatory herb, but has proven antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Eating garlic raw or lightly cooked, or making garlic tea are several of the most effective methods for its medicinal use. Odorless, freeze-dried supplements are available for those who prefer to avoid the strong scent on their breath.


Simple, plain and life's staple, water is perhaps one of the best blood thinners available. Allowing yourself to become dehydrated thickens the blood, causing it to clump together and form clots. Drinking enough clear, clean water each day helps keep the blood running smoothly through your circulatory and cardiovascular system, maintaining good health. The ideal daily intake for each individual is 1/2 ounce of water for each pound of body weight; in other words, if you weight 150 pounds, you should ideally drink 75 ounces of water daily.

All of these substances have the power to thin the blood. There are other foods as well, such as vitamins B-6, D and E, omega-3 fatty acids, apple cider vinegar and strawberries that act as blood-thinning agents; and when used judiciously under the supervision of your health practitioner, may keep you healthy longer, prevent strokes and blood clots and help keep you off drugs and out of the hospital.

Plague Tonic- Here's to your health...

This sounds so awesome for lots of reasons SRN

Here's to your health...

Plague Tonic

1 part fresh Horseradish
1 part fresh Turmeric
1 part fresh Cayenne, Habaneros, or hottest darn peppers you can find
1 part fresh Ginger, no MaryAnn
1 part fresh Onion, hottest white ones you can find; save the sweet onions for your burgers. You want this to kill stuff that wants to kill you. If they don't make you cry, they are no good.
1 part fresh Garlic, leave the skins on the onion and garlic for quercitin. You're going to strain it off and discard it anyway.

Blend each vegetable up in a kitchen processor and dump into a large gallon-size jar. Pour Bragg's Raw Apple Cider Vinegar over all. Let set for 2 weeks, shaking daily. Strain it all in a small mesh colander. Can be stored on the shelf; does not need refrigeration. Also good over pinto beans and cornbread.

Take an ounce or so daily for reducing inflammation and staying young forever.

* Also good over pinto beans and cornbread.
This stuff fixes cold, flu, respiratory problems, immune booster, anti allergy, anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti anything that can hurt you... MASTER TONIC...

contains, Garlic, Horseradish, Ginger, Peppers, Onion, in an Apple Cider vinegar base.

Have a Healthy Day!!!

Master Tonic

- A Natural Antibiotic: antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitical.

1 part fresh chopped garlic

1 part fresh chopped Onion

1 part fresh grated Ginger Root

1 part fresh grated Horseradish Root

1 part fresh chopped Cayenne Peppers or any peppers available.

Apple Cider Vinegar (Raw Unfiltered Unbleached Non-distilled)

Fill a glass jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts by volume of the above fresh chopped and grated herbs. Then fill jar to the top with raw apple cider vinegar. Close and shake vigorously

Shake at least once a day for two weeks, and then filter the mixture through a clean piece of cloth or filter, bottle and label. Make sure that when you make this tonic that you shake it every time you walk by it, a minimum of once per day. Remember that all the herbs and vegetables should be fresh (and organically grown if possible) and use dried herbs only in an emergency.

This tonic is extremely powerful because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be underestimated. This formula is a modern day plague tonic and when added to an incurable routine it can cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. This formula is not just for the sniffles, it has helped to turn around the deadliest infections like some of the new mutated killer viruses that defy conventional antibiotics.

The dosage is 1 or 2 ounce, two or more times daily. Swish and swallow. (Don't dilute with water.)

For ordinary infections, a dose taken 5-6 times a day will deal with most conditions. It can be used during pregnancies, is safe for children (use smaller doses and as a food is completely non-toxic. Make up plenty as it does not need refrigeration and lasts indefinitely without any special storage conditions.

Ingredient properties:

-Garlic cloves (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-parasitical)

-White Onion, or hottest onions available (similar properties to garlic)

-Ginger Root (increases circulation to the extremities)

-Horseradish Root (increases blood flow to the head)

-Cayenne Peppers, or the hottest peppers available, i.e. Jalapeno, etc. (a great blood stimulant).

Garlic is a broad spectrum antibiotic, destroying both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Unlike chemical antibiotics that kill off the millions of friendly bacteria that your body needs, Garlic only kills the bad guys and even promotes and increases your healthy bacteria. It is also a very potent anti-viral which really makes it a specific for colds, influenza and upper respiratory infections. Garlic is also a powerful anti-fungal and literally destroys any antigen, pathogen and any harmful or disease causing micro-organism that can hurt you. Onion is Garlic's next of kin and has a similar but milder action. Together they are a killing duo. Horseradish is a potent herb for the sinus and lungs. It opens up the sinus passages and increases the circulation there, where, most doctors agree, the common cold and influenza often starts. Cayenne and Ginger are like a nuclear blast to your body's circulation. This powerful tag team will unblock anything, anywhere!

So just imagine, you have the two strongest herbs to kill EVERY germ known and the three most powerful herbs to blast them around your entire body. It doesn't get any better.

Not just a reader but a doer! (Container Gardening)

I am a Big Fan of container gardening...

This is my Aunt, she recently lost my Uncle and so decided rather than go without her summer garden and all her favorites, she put together a great and very productive container garden, I am so proud of her and her determination...

When there is will there is a way! 

If you have never done gardening this is a great way to break the ice. You will be hooked!
  Happy Growing...  
I was so excited today when I got to my Aunt Paula's House and she anxiously said, come on... I have to show you what I did!

She told me she had been inspired by reading my blog... That was an awesome feeling for me... I spend so many hours a day trying to put together good and helpful information and then to see that someone actually
read it and put it to use was great.

To see how she created such a beautiful garden with so much to harvest, I was so proud of her. I love a doer! Paula just made a decision and dug in! Literally... If I've said it once I've said it 100 times. "If there's a will there's a way"  My Aunt told me she has plains to expand her crops next year. YOU GO GIRL!

We went out back and she walked me over to a beautiful and very productive garden in her back yard. All done in containers! Two small blue pools and about 5 whiskey barrel half's. But wait there's more! she went Organic!!! I was so excited and proud of her. All organic soil and no pesticides! Everything looked so healthy.

She pulled off two beautiful zucchini squash and had a plant full of yellow summer squash. One barrel was a beautiful herb garden, she also had beets, carrots, potatoes and cucumbers. I know, hard to believe no tomatoes, but she doesn't like them! After praising her for such a magnificent job, she took me and showed me the rest of her projects.

After our tour of her rose garden and a walk over to her fruit trees, where I indulged in fresh sweet peaches right off the tree, we went inside and she made a pizza with her fresh garden veggies and basil that was so fragrant I wanted to put it behind my ears!

She mentioned that she wanted to get the recipe for the "no knead" bread and give it try, so since I have the recipe memorized, I told her what she needed and she whipped together a loaf right then and there!

Later that evening after a great dinner of her famous Taco's and rice along with family fun and games we all had a yummy piece of bread hot from the oven with butter and strawberry jelly.

It was a blessed day spent with family, first to church together in the morning, some lunch, visiting and games, cooking eating, more games and lots of laughs. 

Thanks Aunt Paula for making my Day!

God is Indeed Good!

Doesn't take much to yeild a harvest!

Love this share that My Edible Yard Urban Homestead Shared. You really don't have to have a farm to feed yourself. SRN  
Go to the link below

And to think I was ready to let the air out of his tires, he was brilliant.

Thanks For the great Share Rick!
Don't be too fast to point fingers at SCOTUS Chief Justice Roberts - there is a more compelling reason he made this vote. Besides the great points listed below, as a tax, it will now only take 51 Senate votes to defend the thing and that's a very do-able task.  There are a lot of Dems that want their name removed from the "Tax Connection" as quickly as possible.  Perhaps they'll want to distance themselves from Reid and Pelosi as well?
Subject: Chief Justice Roberts is a Genius

Chief Justice Roberts Is A Genius

Before you look to do harm to Chief Justice Roberts or his family, it’s important that you think carefully about the meaning – the true nature — of his ruling on Obama-care. The Left will shout that they won, that Obama-care was upheld and all the rest. Let them.
It will be a short-lived celebration.
Here’s what really occurred — payback. Yes, payback for Obama’s numerous, ill-advised and childish insults directed toward SCOTUS.
Chief Justice Roberts actually ruled the mandate, relative to the commerce clause, was unconstitutional. That’s how the Democrats got Obama-care going in the first place. This is critical. His ruling means Congress can’t compel American citizens to purchase anything. Ever. The notion is now officially and forever, unconstitutional. As it should be.
Next, he stated that, because Congress doesn’t have the ability to mandate, it must, to fund Obama-care, rely on its power to tax. Therefore, the mechanism that funds Obama-care is a tax. This is also critical. Recall back during the initial Obama-care battles, the Democrats called it a penalty, Republicans called it a tax. Democrats consistently soft sold it as a penalty. It went to vote as a penalty. Obama declared endlessly, that it was not a tax, it was a penalty. But when the Democrats argued in front of the Supreme Court, they said ‘hey, a penalty or a tax, either way’. So, Roberts gave them a tax. It is now the official law of the land — beyond word-play and silly shenanigans. Obama-care is funded by tax dollars. Democrats now must defend a tax increase to justify the Obama-care law.
Finally, he struck down as unconstitutional, the Obama-care idea that the federal government can bully states into complying by yanking their existing medicaid funding. Liberals, through Obama-care, basically said to the states — ‘comply with Obama-care or we will stop existing funding.’ Roberts ruled that is a no-no. If a state takes the money, fine, the Feds can tell the state how to run a program, but if the state refuses money, the federal government can’t penalize the state by yanking other funding. Therefore, a state can decline to participate in Obama-care without penalty. This is obviously a serious problem. Are we going to have 10, 12, 25 states not participating in “national” health-care? Suddenly, it’s not national, is it?
Ultimately, Roberts supported states rights by limiting the federal government’s coercive abilities. He ruled that the government can not force the people to purchase products or services under the commerce clause and he forced liberals to have to come clean and admit that Obama-care is funded by tax increases.
Although he didn’t guarantee Romney a win, he certainly did more than his part and should be applauded.
And he did this without creating a civil war or having bricks thrown through his windshield. Oh, and he’ll be home in time for dinner.
