Simple and easy.... find the corresponding area you want to improve..... apply slight pressure (no need to press down till you feel pain, just slight pressure!).... and rub in a circular motion with your Thumb!
2 minutes an area!
Make sure you do it on both hands so that you are hitting all the right spots.
Once a day is good. You can do it at work, or while watching TV!!!

The worse part of winter in my house.
Hot air heat cause's it.
I spend the winter shocking the cat, fridge, stove, lamps, and even MYSELF!!!

It's fun sneaking up on people and giving them a shock...........
and ohhhhhhhhh, so pretty if you do it in the dark.... the sparks are pretty and blue!!!
I don't mind at first, but by January I'm sick of it. I think I'm going to wear rubber gloves all winter this year!!!

I bought some Ritz dye and decided to revive my black stuff!!!! Not a bad idea...
but I hate the smell of the dye.... so, I, in my greater brain moment said..... why don't I do this outside on the B-B-Q??? No smell in the house, and I can play with my plants while the black slacks are boiling away in the dye!
Sounds good to me, right?
So I'm out side... huge pot on the grill, Black dye in it, dropping black slacks into the pot...... and I think to myself.... OMG I look like an evil witch stirring her cauldron!!!!!!!
At that point I start laughing like an idiot at myself... doing a little "dumb dumb" dance...... and the mailman pulls up!!!
You get the picture. I have no idea why he pulled up in front of my house, but he didn't stay long.... took off like a SHOT! DURRRRRRRRRRRRR! GIGGLE

Please use these helpful hints this and every Halloween and during the whole year.
1. When it appears that you have killed the monster, never check to see if it's really dead.
2. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.
3. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.
4. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice.
5. When you have the benefit of numbers, never pair off and go alone.
6. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.
7. Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well.
8. If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, get the hell out!
9. If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out.
10. Do not take anything from the dead.
11. If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.
12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you're doing.
13. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are of the female persuasion. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.
14. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately.
15. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here:
anywhere in Texas where chainsaws are sold
the Bermuda Triangle
any small town in Maine
any deserted Island
any deserted summer camp
and totally forget any cabin in the woods!
16. If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help.
17. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.
18. Beware of strangers bearing strange tools. For example:
electric carving knives
any devices made from deceased companions.
19. If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices in your house.
20. If you have just smoked dope, gotten drunk with a bunch of stupid frat boys or, especially, just had sex, you are as good as dead, so just kiss it good-bye!
Know the facts, folks. These aren't just suggestions.... GIGGLE

Keep this in mind if you start seeing lots of spiders around your place.
Natural spider killer or preventer... take one cup of vinegar, one cup of pepper, a teaspoon of oil and liquid soap.
Put it into a spray bottle and spray along the outside of house, along your outside door and windows; refresh after it rains.
Other then that, I suggest loud screaming, rolled up newspaper, and getting married just so you'll have someone to kill them for you!!!!!!!

Equal hours of light and darkness
we celebrate the balance of Mabon,
and ask the gods to bless us.
For all that is bad, there is good.
For that which is despair, there is hope.
For the moments of pain, there are moments of love.
For all that falls, there is the chance to rise again.
May we find balance in our lives
as we find it in our hearts.
The Lord has gone to sleep
while Maiden's weep.
The edge of death
conceals the ivory bones
of Winter from our sight,
as equal day and equal night
gives way to the dark.
The silence is our hearts
proclaims the end of Summer
and the passing of the light.
The sorrowful Maiden's weep,
for Winter keeps
all things to Herself.
The dormant God gestates
within the womb of fate,
and dreams He is the coming of the light.

Cinnamon Apple Butter
9 to 10 apples, peeled and cored
1 cup apple cider
2 tsp. apple pie spice
(or 1/2 tsp. each nutmeg and allspice and 1tsp. cinnamon)
Cut the apples into 1-inch chunks. (Don't worry about making them perfectly sized.) Place in a large, nonreactive saucepan and pour cider over them. Cover the pot and cook for about 30 minutes over low heat, until the apples are soft. Cool the mixture, divide it into two batches and puree each in a food processor or blender. (At this point, you have an unsweetened applesauce, which makes excellent baby food). Pour the pureed fruit into a large baking dish, sprinkle with the apple pie spice, and stir. Spread mixture evenly in a 13-by-9-by-2-inch pan. Bake in a 300-degree oven for 2 to 3 hours, until thick and deep brown. Stir every 20 minutes. Cool the apple butter and then scoop it into a clean jar with a sealable lid. It will keep for up to two months in your refrigerator.
Makes 1 1/2 cups.
3 pounds of blackberries
3 pounds of sugar
1 gallon of boiling water
Wash berries, put in large bowl and pour over them the boiling water. Stir well, then cover the bowl and leave for ten days. Strain liquid through muslin, add the three pounds of sugar and stir well. Cover the bowl and leave for three days, but stir daily. Put into bottles and cork, loosely at first. The wine will be ready to drink in six months.
2 quarts dandelion flowers
3 pounds sugar
1 ounce yeast
1 gallon boiling water
Pick the dandelions on a sunny day. Pick just the heads until you have two quart jugs full. Wash flowers and put into a large bowl. Slice orange, lemon thinly and add to the flowerheads. Pour boiling water on top of them, stir well. Cover bowl, leave for ten days, no more. Strain liquid into another bowl, stir in the 3 pounds sugar. Spread the yeast on a piece of toast, and float on top. Cover the bowl and leave for another 3 days. Remove the toast, strain again, and bottle. Cork loosely at first. The wine will be ready to drink in 3 months.
OLD-FASHIONED GINGER BEER
For The Starter:
1/2 Ounce Yeast
2 Teaspoons Sugar
To Feed The "Plant":
7 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
7 Teaspoons Sugar
1 1/2 Pounds Sugar
Juice Of 2 Lemons
Mix starter ingredients with 3/4 pint of warm water in a glass jar. Stir, cover and leave in a warm place for 24 hours. This is your starter "plant". Feed the "plant" with 1 teaspoon each of ground ginger and sugar each day. After 7 days strain through a fine sieve. Dissolve the sugar in 2 pints of water. Add the lemon juice and the liquid from the "plant". Dilute with 5 pints of water, mix well and store in corked bottles for at least 7 days.
Use strong bottles as pressure may build up which will cause thin bottles to explode. For the same reason use corked bottles rather than those with a more secure closure that will not 'give' under pressure.
The amount of sugar in the final stage can be varied according to taste.

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.
The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this green thing back in my earlier days."
...The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."
She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.
Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were truely recycled.
But we didn't have the green thing back in our day.
Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks. This was to ensure that public property, (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.
But too bad we didn't do the green thing back then.
We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.
But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day.
Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.
But that young lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day.
Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.
But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then.
We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.
But we didn't have the green thing back then.
Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.
But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then?
Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smartass young person. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.
