Judy, thanks for the info. I keep getting free, or almost free, reads from Amazon that I have enough to keep me busy for quite a while. Can't do anything with our library until I got in and get my card reactivated. It's ridiculous that we can't do it online. I remember those add-on stories. Hope you are doing well.

Love, Mikie

Judy: when the PH chit chat closed and about 10 of us went to another board, we tried that writing thing again. It was hysterical. I would add something, thinking I could make it go along one line, and then someone else would add and take it to a complete different direction. I saved all of it.....asked permission from the one guy who did most of the writing if I could continue and maybe publish it. He told me yes, go ahead. I started to read it last week, maybe down the road I will rewrite it.

I mainly write fiction, and a few shorts where I want to express a certain feeling about something or someone. I have won a few prizes for my writing, but never got anything finished where I might think publishing. I started one, just as an exercise for the day, but I seemed to enjoy it, and it continued. I have about 130 pages in it. I would love to finish that one but I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew as a main character is smuggling diamonds and I need a small plane crash....all this down around Grand Cayman Island. I stopped writing in that one about 10 years ago....told my DH I needed to go to the Grand Cayman Island to do more research! HA

Sun, I'm not able to post on the Porch thread - some kind of glitch. The box that I would type in is filled with a repeat of my former post on latex. Can't get rid of it.
Thanks for the article - I read it, and researching others. I am allergic to almost every chemical. My face gets inflamed with huge pressure - feels like it' s going to burst. When the road we live on was repaved, I ended up in the hospital from being paralyzed, then vestibular neuritis. I get extreme headaches, and the cognitive confusion and disorientation make me have to leave the room, or stores when I used to shop. Dizziness, congestion, Trouble breathing and panic when I can't breathe. I am really careful with perfumes, mold, scented cleaners, car fumes, really everything. Foods. Buy everything organic.
Who do we contact for posting problems? I PM'd Mikie. At least I can post here.

Judy: not sure what is going on with the other board. Just a suggestion.....can you EDIT your old post then post it?

Yes, that sounds like all that the person I knew went thru. Awful is beyond the word for what you go thru.I learned to read ingredients labels for hidden MSG. I’m keeping my old carpet because of out gassing from new carpets, etc.

By the way, she developed MCS after receiving chemo and radiation. I’ve noticed at times the smells in a fabric store, and my eyes will start burning. I refuse to use chemicals around my garden so resort to spraying bugs with a mixture of water, white vinegar, a little dawn and neem oil. I found yesterday what looked like swarming termites by my front door. I grabbed my vinegar/water bottle and sprayed them. Now I need to contact the termite company that had spot treated in my attic. I saved one of the buggers in a little jar for him to look at.

When we first moved to this house, a window had been spot treated. A year later it was back and we had to be tented. OMG OMG OMG.....the smell was awful and couldn’t stand it. The company came out and put big fans everywhere to try to get rid of the smell which made me sick. So this time I didn’t want to be tented. The company put in special spikes in the ground around the house every 10’. It was supposed to attract subterranean termites and then they eat a little and take it to their home and kill the rest of the colony.

Sun, i figured it out. I posted, then deleted it.
I use vinegar, water, and peppermint spray for ants that we sometimes get, little ones, but I don't want them to stay. It works great.
I loved the beautiful chairs in your dining room! What style are they?

Judy: good thing you figured it out.
I’m laughing at your comment on the chairs.....4 wrought iron thrift store chairs bought years ago and the seats have been recovered a couple of times. My 4 year old DGD mentioned last time as she was sitting at the kitchen table that there were two different types of chairs. Yep.....wrought iron, bought at different times. The kitchen area is small so had to use wrought iron to make it seem more roomy. Actually almost my entire house is thrift store/garage sale/estate sale purchases. Only the mattress, a couple of large chairs and a couch bought new almost 50 years ago. That couch has been recovered at least 6 times because it’s a strong wood framework and is 9’ long. Can’t hardly find one that long anymore. Besides....I really don’t toss things out unless I absolutely cant use it anymore.

And I think I’ve mentioned I use peppermint oil on my neck and also a drop under my nose.....this helps open up the nasal passages to help me breathe. I would be lost without peppermint oil. When I first mixed up the vinegar/water solution I saw a black widow spider.....sprayed it several times.....then watched it die.

Sun, I love the design on those chairs, and the placement of items, composition of that area. What kind of tree is it outside the door?
How does peppermint help your neck? I use a lot of herbs , always feel good using plants - it just makes me happy to think about all their healing properties. I use turmeric for inflammation, ginger, cinnamon for lowering blood sugar, something called Biocidin which is a powerhouse of antiviral, antibacterial,antifungal plants. My dh takes it whenevever he feels like he's getting sick. It has helped him countless times.
I just bought him an organic raw honey from Canada that he mixes with lemon for bronchial problems.
My grandmother gave me that for a cough syrup when I was kid. Brought back good memories.
Do you have anything to take to help with breathing the smoke from the fires?

Hi, Kids,

Judy, sorry I was offline when you sent me the pm. When I've had problems on the boards, I often hit the Home button and then go back and for some reason, it seems to solve the problem. I even contacted Tech Support and Holly didn't know other than something about my cookies. Glad you figured it out. I am super allergic to scents in detergents and dryer sheets and it makes me immediately sick. AACCKK!!

Sun, I like eclectic decorating rather than matched suites of furniture. Love my wrought iron bar stools that have a green coloring to them. It was a fad when I moved here and they called it verde wrought iron. My little ants don't like the peppermint oil but I finally let the pest man put out the gel and it works much better. Love to put a couple of drops of the oil in my bath.

Love, Mikie

Judy: the tree is a podacarpus, been growing here since we had moved in 35 years ago. I keep it about roof height and clipped close to block the afternoon sun.

I also take oregano oil, have for years to help knock out colds, bronchitis, etc. I keep a little juice glass with about 1/4 cup of water in it with about 6 drops of the oil, swish it around and then use a little in my mouth after brushing. I used to spit but read it can also help bladder cancer, so I started swallowing it after swishing. It burns a little but doesn’t last. I notice that the Biocidin your DH buys also has it in it, along with echinacea that I take when I feel like I’m coming down with something. Oregano oil was also investigated concerning the covid. It’s amazing stuff, even kills ecoli. As to the peppermint oil, I use a few drops on a cotton pad and rubbed onto my neck. Within about a min. it helps with the neck pain by cooling the pain. I’ve tried it other places on my body, but I don’t seem to notice it helping.

Mikie: love the verdigris color! I have some old copper pieces outside in my garden and have sprayed them with apple cider vinegar and then salted them......the copper turns a beautiful green color. Makes it look like the pieces have aged. When I go to a yard sale or thrift store, I look for wrought iron and other pieces of metal to use in my garden. And a favorite piece of mine in the garden are 3 intertwined metal staves from an old whiskey barrel that were falling apart.

Hi Kreon, welcome. Are you new at pro-health? Are you struggling with an illness, or have someone in your life who is?

OK, Kids. Here is a small example of an add on story. Suddenly the lights went out, there was the sound of two gunshots, and Minnie Pearl stuck her head through the open window and hollered, "How-Dee!" Now the next poster adds a sentence which may continue the story or start it off in a totally different direction. As in, "The fire continued to spread." or "Richie fell out of the swing, and
alarmed his mother."

Nothing much going on here. I am reading a book by Debbie Macomber. She's the kind of writer that used to move my mother to ask, "Good Grief! She writes so many books...does she write them in her sleep?" This book lists 100s of her books. The one I'm reading starts in the late 40s and comes right
up to the present. Reminds the reader of lots of history; good and bad.

Gordon just brought me my pills. He brings me 14 a day. Just for fun I'm putting them beside the
computer. See how long it takes for him to start barking orders. "Take Your Pills!"

Kreon, Welcome to the Board.

Hugs everybody.

Hi, Rock,

I will be glad when Girls of Pearl Harbor is done. It ain't great literature. It's chick lit. They are all the same...'He looked at me with those gorgeous brown eyes and I suddenly felt warm all over.' Soft porn.

Uh, buddy, I hope you're kidding about the pills. I don't know what all kinds you take but it could be dangerous if you don't take them.

See ya over on the Porch.

Love, Mikie

Hi Mikie, No need to worry. I took the pills. Reminds me of when I was small and my mother
made me drink cod liver oil. Yuck! Maybe it didn't come in pills back in those primitive days.
Well, I guess it wasn't too primitive. The atomic bomb existed. I haven't finished Debby Macomber's book yet. Almost.

Culinary quiz. Who used or a gon o in the kitchen instead of or reg a no? Of course it was pioneering
cooking show chef Julie Child.

Going back to bed. Cheers, Rock

Rock,

When I was little, my Mom put cod liver oil in my OJ. When we went to the store, I told her not to buy those oranges because they had cod liver oil in them. That stuff was horrible.

Glad you are taking your meds.

Love, Mikie

Joey! I have heard about you a million times from your Mom over the years! She always shared about your great love of science, and how good you are with computer skills. Will keep you in my prayers, dear Joey. I feel like I know you from your Mom and I emailing for so many years. She was one of the best friends of my life. So sorry for your loss, but thankful that your Mom is not suffering anymore. I just now read the email from your Aunt Michele. God bless you Joey.
Love, Judy
