Preserve Choice
The company names and brands will be different in different countries but the principle remains the same. The concentration of more power in fewer hands does not bode well for your children. Disempower the multinationals who control the governments. Grow your own. Shop local and small.

Stay Dedicated

Very little of lasting worth happens instantly.
Most is hard won over a long time.
It takes patience, dedication and persistence to keep going and succeed in the face of an apparently superior force arranged against one.
The first battle one has to win is over one’s mind.
Once you have licked your negatives into submission you are far more powerful against the enemy.

Uses For Silica Gel Sachets

When most people get a packet of silica gel in a shoe box or beef jerky packet, their instinct is to toss it. But savvy DIYers have long known that the omnipresent desiccants are good for a lot more than keeping jerky dry. Here are a few uses, including some great tips sent in by readers.
-Use in underwater camera casings
-Toss them in your toolbox to keep your tools free of oxidation
-Dry out a wet cell phone
-Keep engines dry while in storage
-Extend the life of razor blades
-Fight camera condensation
-Dry out wet fishing flies
-Create a dry travel bag
-Use them to keep seeds
-Keep dried herbs fresh
-Keep salt and baking soda from clumping
-Dry out computers
-Dry out soaked (or stinky) shoes
-Prevent mold and mildew in storage
-Keep clothes from smelling “stale” in the off season
-Protect jewelry and silver, prevent tarnish
What do you use them for?

Smoking Dope

I have no problem with growing hemp to replace cotton or wood or any other plant uses but to those who would smoke the stuff I tender some data from Dr Anita Pepi of which I think you should be aware:
Marijuana is the common name for a drug from the plant Cannabis sativa. The main active ingredient in marijuana is “THC” = delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. There are 400 other chemicals in the plant as well. The strength of today’s marijuana is as much as ten times greater than the marijuana used in the early 1970s.
Here is a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for THC. (MSDS’s are fact sheets required by the U.S. government to be available to employees for potentially harmful substances handled in the workplace.) Here are some of the more fascinating findings:
Application of Cannabis tar to animal skin resulted in tumor production.
“Regular chronic use may result in reproductive effects in males including decreased testicular size, testosterone levels, sperm count and motility, and abnormalities in sperm.” Breasts may enlarge in males.
“Females may experience a high frequency of abnormal periods, less ovulation and decreased prolactin levels.” (Decreased prolactin hormone levels means that the pituitary, the master gland, is degenerating and producing less of its hormone called prolactin.)
Repeated ingestion may result in…”apathy, dullness, anxiety, panic, aggressiveness, disorientation, confusion, clouding of mental processes with impaired judgement and memory, loss of perspective, reduced motivation and acute insecurity”.
“Weight gain may occur…”
THC is a “central nervous system depressant. Poisoning may also affect the respiratory, cardiovascular and immune systems.”
Marijuana use has been correlated by several studies with the development of anxiety, psychosis, and depression.
The American Cancer Society says: “Many researchers agree that marijuana contains known carcinogens, or chemicals that can cause cancer…Some researchers caution that… smoking marijuana may decrease reproductive function, cause lung disease, and increase the risk of cancer of the lungs, mouth, and tongue. It may also suppress the body’s immune system and increase the risk of leukemia in children whose mothers smoke marijuana during pregnancy. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use marijuana.”
Unfortunately, chemicals from marijuana can stay in the body for decades, stored in the fatty tissues. If someone does a fast, cleanse, or weight-loss program, marijuana residues can dislodge and move back into the bloodstream. People can then re-experience the marijuana and its effects.
When someone ingests or detoxifies marijuana, there is an immediate burn-up of vitamins and minerals in the body. These resulting nutritional deficiencies create other symptoms, on top of the usual effects from marijuana.
Whatever problem marijuana seems to solve in a person’s life, there are far healthier solutions available. Read successes here to find out.
No reason to take risks!
