  1. Hey I\’m back. I wanted to let you and my other blog buddies know that I have been cyber attacked. I\’ve never had this happen to me before but I\’ve seen some others go through it. While I thought of deleting it, I don\’t think it will stop it, but instead make it worse, so I left it up for all to see. I just wanted you to be aware of it and ask you to be careful in leaving me comments in my Guest Signing Day entry. I\’m worried that this little punk will start going back to anyone who comments on it and start the crap there. That\’s how I apparently got involved, even though my comment was very bland and only referred to my Never Argue With An Idiot Quote. I did comment back so I guess I didn\’t listen to the quote myself really good, did I? But I don\’t plan on feeding this hate frenzy that is going on for a reason I have no clue about. Just couldn\’t resist it this once. This is really a shame. But if it continues, I will eventually delete it.Happy Space Appreciation Day! 🙂

  2. The Lemon, a Healer… Headache lemon juice with a few teaspoons of hot tea (clover or alfafa is best) added is the treatment of a sophisticated New York bartender, for thoes who suffer from hangover headaches – and from headaches due to many other causes. He converts his customers to this regime, and weans them away from drug remedies completely very nice …

  3. Olive Oil the painkiller A stroke of good luck has helped scientist explain one of the mysteries of the Mediterranean diet, a world-famous regime credited with cardiac fitness and a longer lifespan. Olive Oil, one of the diet\’s main stays, contains a painkilling compound similar to an ingredient found in over-the-counter anti-inflammatories, they say. The compound has been found to inhibit cyclooxygenase (COX) enzymes, which play a key role in causing inflammation, they report in last Thursday\’s issue of the weekly British journal Nature. The widely-used painkiller ibuprofen has a similar pharmacological action. The discovery came accidentally, thanks to a trip to Italy by United States-based biologist Gary Beau-champ, of the Monell Chemical Senses Center at the University of Pennsylvania. He had previously noted that whenever he took ibuprofen he experienced a stinging sensation in the back of the throat — and he suddenly noticed the same tingling when he tasted pungent newly-pressed olive oil while attending a molecular gastronomy conference in Sicily. On returning home, he and his colleagues worked to identify the intriguing chemical. Isolated from the complex bouquet of molecules that make up olive oil, the compound has been dubbed oleOcanthal (“oleo” for olive, “canth” for sting and “al” for aldehyde). To rule out the possibility that other compounds may be responsible for the irritation, the research team assembled a synthetic form of oleocanthal and tested it on volunteers, and also tested it in lab dishes of COX enzymes. According to the researchers, taking 50g of extra-virgin olive oil containing up to 200 micrograms of oleOcanthal per day is roughly equivalent to 10 per cent of the recommended dose of ibuprofen for adult pain relief. The next step will be to identify exactly how oleOcanthal inhibits the enzymes, and how this related to throat sting. The much-trumpeted Mediterranean diet is based on Olive oil fish fresh fruit vegetables nuts and a daily glass of red wine Ibuprofen has been associated with a reduction in the risk of developing some kinds of cancer and of dangerous blood clotting. Another COX inhibitor is aspirin, regular but modest doses of which are deemed to help cardiovascular health.

  5. +[OshO]+ lOve is essentially humbleness — there is noOther kind of humbleness If humbleness is cultivated withOut lOve it is just another trick of the egO when humbleness comes naturally out of love, then it is tremen-dously beautiful. So fall in love with existence — and the beginningis to fall in love with yourself once you are in lOve with yourself you start feelingin lOve withmany people, and by and by that space becomes bigger and bigger one day you suddenly find that the whole of existence is includedin it, that lOve is now no longer addressed to anybody in particu-lar, that is simply there for anybody to take — it is simply flOwing even is nObody is there to take itit is flOwing Then Love is not a relationship, it is a state of being. And in thatstate of being lies humbleness, true humbleness Jesus is humble inthat way; the pOe is not humble. Somebody can cultivate povertyand become very egoistic about it 2 mireal humbleness arisesas a fragrance of lOve It cannot be cultivates, you cannot practice it, there is no way to learn it You have to go into lOve and one day suddenly you find that Love has flOwered —spring has come and lOve has bloomed and there is a certain fragrance that was never there before : You are humble
