When we were kids and highlights were the rage for a “summer look,” we put apple cider vinegar and water in a spray bottle and sprayed our hair before we got into the boat to water ski the day away! It worked great!

If we got sunburned we gently washed the burn with apple cider vinegar. It cooled almost instantly!

When we had to wash windows before we could go skiing we used a white vinegar and water mixture and dried the glass or mirror with wadded up newspapers...c...

Ice Cream for Breakfast

When I was a kid we were required to show evidence of breakfast by leaving our cereal bowl in the sink on Sat. morning BEFORE we could have a bowl of ice cream while watching cartoons. So I would eat a small amount of Cheerios, leave one or two in the bowl with a drizzle of milk and put it in the sink. Then I would make a big bowl of ice cream with Hershey’s syrup, Spanish peanuts and whipped cream and enjoy my cartoons.

In my midlife I remembered back and realized that I had slow...

Ever watch a sleepy baby? She may lay down in the middle of an activity or cry till put to her bed, or show a temper. My daughter would lay down in the middle of the floor or put her head on her high chair tray in the middle of a meal and be sound asleep. It took some time for me to learn from her example.

What happened? The body recognized its need for rest and simply took it. What would happen if more of us took a rest or nap period when our boday asked for it? I can hear all the e...

Thinking, Speaking and Healing

My landing spot was a pile of large, sharp- edged stones and I lost all feeling in my extremities and of course had the breath knocked out of me.

My first reaction was fear and wanting to breath. Normal. My next reaction was pan...
