I live with a relative who is a sugar addict.  I think she traded one addiction (alcohol) for another.  She eats more sugar than any other food and now it is baking season and I keep telling her "NO Thank You" when she wants me to eat a little cookie here, or a piece of chocolate there.  If she can get me to eat the sugary stuff then she feels justified with her behavior and dives right in and eats even more.  Yesterday she bought some store bought cookies because she was eating her Christmas cookies that are in a tin in the freezer right out of the tin - frozen.  I don't know what to do about this because I have never been a sugar person, and I am constantly having to justify my lack of participation in the sugar fest.  If I mention sugar feeds cancer cells, which it does, I get the oh well zombie look.  In one ear - out the other.

Hi,

I watched an interview with Dr. Mercola recently and he was speaking about the dangers of LED lights and how they can cause blindness due to the blue spectrum.  He was recommending incandescent lighting as an alternative because it has the infrared spectrum which is beneficial to our eye health.  Just thought this might be some useful info for you as you get your plans underway for living off grid.  Here is the web link.

Thank you all for your kind words of encouragement.  I don't really know my sisters dogs on a personal level as we live pretty far from each other, but the one on the left is definitely a fun-loving goofette according to my sister.  Painting is a God given gift and I really enjoy it. It is a form of meditation and often when I am done, I look at the work and think to myself, how did I do that?

I have been searching the net for a solution to the flea problem on my cat.  I adopted her last month and the people failed to tell me she was loaded with fleas, poor thing.  So I have been using a flea comb and literally getting about 10 fleas and loads of eggs daily.  Every time I think it is under control, there are more.  So today, I found this guys site and this was the most informative site I have found on using diatomaceous earth so far.  I would like to share this with anyone who is experiencing this little problem.  I doused my carpets today.  Fortunately I have been adding the food grade stuff for years to smoothies and had a lot of it on hand.  I buy the stuff on Amazon for about $10 for ten pounds.  I give it to the kitty in her water too.  Not too much to make it too cloudy but just enough to irritate the intestinal parasites.  I have read that this is good for that.  That is why I take it, but not too often.  Only about once a week.  It seems to be enough but then I have never looked in my intestines to see what is actually happening.  Anyway, here is the guys site on using this stuff for flea control.  https://richsoil.com/flea-control.jsp

I like to paint pet portraits.  Here is a picture I recently painted of my sisters dogs Bella and Gretta.  They live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.  I hope you like it. I am not sure if the picture will post or not.  I did not see it in the preview.
