As citizens we never know what the military does until it's too late like in 2009 for example. A farmer lost over 6,000 sheep because a nerve agent dispersed or wafted right over his flock in Utah. What about the citizens? Not to mention the anthrax type of bacteria that was used in Oahu,Hawaii. How many chemicals are being released and will it effect us and our wild life? The damage is often done before we discover the truth. Where is Democracy or was it ever really there? You know, fear that was the main feeling feeling that the Native American felt when peace was lost after this continent became settled by Europeans. Human destroying human and how purposeful is that?

Good morning to my topix friends, hope you slept as well as I did with the storms last night. Loved it. Winds got strong for a while and I was hoping we wouldn't have to take cover. We were lucky considering close by Ark/Ala had tornados and left thousands without power. Beautiful cool morning though. Birds enjoying all the muffins, bread, bagels and biscuits I tossed out on the hillside from the last couple days. This morning it almost felt like spring listening to them sing when I woke up. If only....lol

Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!

I slept like a rock! It must have drifted into my dreams though because I dreamt of a flood.

The birds are really singing outside today though. Hope it's a pretty day, I want to take the Harley out for a long ride. Probably hit Cumberland Falls and keep heading south for a couple of hours or so. My old bones needed that good night of rest! I feel like a million bucks today!

Hope everyone else is having a great one too! Any more earthquakes happen overnight? I've not touched the t.v. remote and don't intend to, hehe.

Hi, JW! Yes, peppermint is awesome for an upset stomach, even heartburn. Sounds like you got a good man there!! When I was a kid though, we didn't usually keep candy in the house. So what was in the kitchen usually had to do. The baking soda helped ease the gassiness and stomach upset while the Karo put some sugar back into you and the water helped rehydrate if you'd been vomiting.
(I was a very sick child, and OH MY LORD some of the nasty tasting prescriptions I had to take, hehe! There were no "bubble gum" flavors to add to elixirs back then, ROFLMBO!! So that Karo syrup thing was a nice option, lesser of the evils, lol)

I like mint tea also! Speaking of teas, have to tried the Green Tea with Pomegranate form Bigelow? It's really good and has a natural sweetness so you don't have to add anything else to it. I also like chamomile tea at night before bed..

Have a great day, hope to see everyone here later tonight. I might head out now and see what the day holds for me on the highway! Gonna take the camera. The trees should be extremely beautiful after the rain last night!!

Hi "Nope", Sounds like you have an awesome day planned. Cumberland Falls is so beautiful. I use to have relative living there and loved going there in the summer to fish, go boating, swimming, picnicing etc...I bet you will see some beautiful colorful trees there. I have to work this afternoon so I will have to watch the day through a window, ugh. Oh well, I have enjoyed the last few days outdoors. Wish I could of ridden. My Willie G leather is not getting much use these days.

Earthquake report:

Nebraska had a 3.6 mag. and there were earthquakes in Utah, Montana, Hawaii, Alaska, and California.

Indonesia 5.4 mag, Greenland 4.6, Chile 4.6 mag, Portugal 4.6 mag, Phillipines 4.6 mag, Tonga 4.6 mag, Russia 4.3 mag, along with Italy, Turkey, Greece, and Boliva.

I hope you have a great ride and enjoy the day. I might check in later tonight, late.

No, I have none to sell. Except for my chickens, I was speaking about wild game. This place is loaded with wild rabbits. It is not unusual for me to see 8 to 10 a day here.

For those who try to stay away from refined sugar, an excellent source of sweetener is light or amber agave nectar. I prefer the lighter nectar of course. When my sister was a young girl, she used lemon juice as a naturally lighten her hair. Several washes and boom. Natural highlights...Crazy, things we remember from childhood. Picking fresh raspberries and putting them in milk and sugar. Fresh,flavored drink. You can get fined for picking plants on public land, but I never heard of that way back in the good Ol days...

I prefer the dark agave nectar. It's so good in iced tea when I feel like having sweetened. I've also put it in my coffee in a pinch and was shocked at the good taste!

When I was in my teens I used to put lemon juice in my hair too, being a natural blonde. I really should start doing it again now that this nasty gray is starting to creep in. I imagine it would take some of the drabness out and liven up my highlights again...

I'm craving some fresh berries now though, lol. Great post!

I can remember lots of things from childhood. Snow cream for one that we dare not eat anymore. It was made with fresh snow and Watkin's vanilla extract. An old peddler would come by selling Watkin's products which included the vanilla and liniment. He sold lots of other stuff including needles and thread. He also sold Knapp shoes which were comfortable work brograns.

Then there was "Hadacol" that predated Geritol that the old folks took as a "pick me up". It was discontinued after they found out it contained 98% booze. No wonder it made them feel better. LOL

Before there was instant coffee, there was "Postum" which was just a warm drink similar to coffee.

Girls made hair curlers out of pieces of tin cans rolled in rags. They rubbed the red juice from overripe "poke" plants on their lips as lipstick.

Wow! That takes me down to memory lane. I remembered all except the "poke" plants. Are they plants indigenous to this region. I am not sure what they are. I do have weeds that I pull (for therapy), Some of these plants have very bright magenta coloring, which stains clothes and hands if you get into them.(I found out the hard way). Are these the plants that you are referring to?

@ Oglala believe it or not , if you have a Wal-mart that's were you'll find agave( light, med., dark). Should be with sugar, confectioner's sugar, baking goods. Sorry for butting in.

Fresh growth young poke was picked and cooked as greens and generally mixed with mustard, kale, or dandelion greens. Remember the song "Poke Salat Annie" ?

It generally grows in fence rows and such. Yes it is indigenous to Kentucky. The overripe poke has red berries that will stain everything. The girls were just careful to use the berries on the lips, usually jabbing the berries with a willow switch and rubbing the berry on their lips. Birds eat the berries and make a mess.

Elvis called it "polk salad" but around here, we always called it "poke salat".
