Old houses

A friend came with her  meter to check all our electrical outlets. She found a bunch that weren’t grounded. That means more emf exposure. For $350 we had the issue corrected by an electrician.
I can feel the difference!

Cornish hen at holiday time is quite tasty.  $6 a pound this year at the Fresh Market.

I would feel better the day after eating some when I was in high school and still do.  I didn’t easily find information online about them ….traditions, chemicals which differentiate their taste from chicken…to share with you here.

The Fresh Market remains here😀 in spite of large corporate takeovers.

The history of mercury in medicine dates back thousands of years.  There’s a good 4 page article in the Weston A Price Foundation about that.  Check out westonapricefoundation.org. Search for history of mercury.  There’s a 4 page article about mercury’s persistence in the May 4, 2018 edition.

Dentists began using it around the time of the Civil War believing mercury did not escape from the mixture of the amalgam, referred to as “silver fillings”.  Current technology, like the Jerome meter, shows it is actually escaping.  The short video clip, “The Smoking Tooth” is now online for all to see.

As I looked at (with my background) president Biden’s 12 leaders of misinformation I recognized a topic addressed by a bunch of them.  It’s mercury, (a potent neurotoxin) being used in the US conventional medical and dental world.  As I’ve stated before addressing that topic is risky behavior in this country.

Testing for mercury is available to anyone in Virginia with a call to quicksilverscientific.com.  They will send out a kit for you to collect blood, urine, and hair samples.  You return it in the mail.  The price includes the testing and some discussion about what the results may mean. These people are serious about mercury.

This is not a made-up word.  It’s actually the brand name of a yarn.  It’s a hemp blend I bought it from Yarn Matters on Richmond Road.  Over the thymus seems like a common sense place to put it to enhance the immune system.😌

34% hemp, 41% cotton, 25% modal (blend of bamboo chips making is great to put on for your skin to help it breathe) is Elsebeth Lavold’s hempathy.

(See entry 9/6/20).

Not the word associated with Buddhism.  Zen Honeycutt is founder of Moms Across America.  She began this organization after she needed to take her child to the emergency room during the Thanksgiving dinner with a food allergy!  She has changed what her family is eating.

Within recent months a neighbor let me know a pack of 2 epipens (usable only once) costs $700.  She has them because although she does stay away from those food allergies she knows about – things creep in.  Then she needs to use one.  

The quality of our USA food supply has continued to decrease (entry 1/28/20).  But locally “community gardens” have sprung up.  (entry 2/15/20)

Another Halloween hunting for possible prepackaged room temperature edibles to pass out.

Since I didn’t find any I will give out non-food items again.  The parents with a tiny child with celiac disease and type 1 diabetes will be glad.  I met her last year at my door.
