    After my folks spent $7K on their senior dog and still had to put her down I try my hand at treatment before taking a pet to the vet. I can treat abscesses and most wounds but something that requires surgery is on the vet.

    Coffee

    We use a Brita for our cats' second water bowl upstairs. We use a Berkey for everything else even the pets' main water bowl in the kitchen.

    Coffee

    K use to make coffee with tap water. I told him I don't put tap water in my body and our weekend coffee had to be made with filtered/bottled water. After drinking the 'fru fru' coffee all weekend K told me his normal tap water coffee tasted salty. Now he uses filtered water. Bad water can...

    Coffee

    We are coffee nuts here. I have a percolator and a stovetop drip pot as backups. K drinks his black and I like mine with stevia and nutpod creamer. (low calorie creamer compared to the heavy cream I use to add to my coffee).

    Made a small batch of potato soup. No one eats it but me so a half batch is fine. Plus those potatoes were staring at me when I opened the pantry door! o_O I need to make another loaf of bread tomorrow. The kids eat homemade bread like candy! The muffin mix is a hit! So I will be mixing...

    Whats everybody doing today?

    Made up a batch of dry muffin mix for the pantry. I might just have to make muffins tomorrow. Good thing I have frozen blueberries. ;) K had a sprinkler head to fix today and to change the oil in his car. He is starting at a new job site Monday and we need to make sure his car is tip top...

    1 Big Bear

    A friend that use to live in Alaska told us that poached animals(when the poachers are caught) and large hoofstock that are hit by cars are donated to soup kitchens and community kitchens.

    You know X when...

    My dad had a mustache as long as I could remember and for decades before that. I went out of town for Christmas to visit my grandmother after I graduated high school and when I came home I thought I was at the wrong house. My dad had shaved off the lip warmer. Now he shaves daily with the odd...

    We have 5 cats right now. Our oldest, Bailey, at 14 never got along with other cats. She likes dogs. She tolerates the other 2 girl cats but the boys can go to hell as far as she is concerned. The other girls get along with everyone in the house. The youngest (11) Alice, is the sister to...

    Neutered toms are affectionate with each other. My pair sleep together and groom each other. But no hanky-panky. Sebastian was like this with our other siamese male, Basil, before he passed. Seb wasn't as cuddly with Jamison but Jamie was K's little man. He got his man-love from K. I have...

    I started training our cats again. Our little Alice is being stubborn. She refuses to train with other "who-mans" in the room. But I'll be damned if she isn't the perfect performer when it is just me!

    Whats everybody doing today?

    Modified some boxes to hold #10 cans. I got 30 cans boxed up in the boxes and put away. Next is to rearrange the food storage closet. K has his weather gear in it so that needs to be put in a tote for storage til next year. We added more gas to our stores. Even though gas prices have gone...

    Whats everybody doing today?

    Try the tea. It is easy to make and after a few days I felt worse but that is the Candida die-off. Once that past I felt tons better. You could also just take the Kyolic daily as a detox/cleanse. Brew a cup of Dandelion root tea. Add a tbsp of minced fresh garlic and ginger. Drink several...
