18 uses for Honey and Cinnamon

I always receive interesting articles from friends and family and I always take the time to read them because you just never know what you might learn. I am not, in any way saying that I believe all of the “cures” using honey and cinnamon work but I LOVE honey and I LOVE cinnamon, so what the heck…..now if they could only restore my eyesight …sigh!! Enjoy the read because It’s A Wandaful Thing.

Did you know that a mix of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus. Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

 HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

“One-Uppers”

How to make your life easier in a world of “One-Uppers”....

Everyone has one in their life. Don’t try and deny it. You know who I mean. That one friend or that one co-worker or that certain parent of your child’s teammate- the ONE UPPER. That wonderful person , whom no matter what amazing or drastic events happen in your life, they can top it. If you found a loonie on the way to work well they found a toonie and (gasp) they know someone who found a gold doubloon. If you had a flat tire well they had two flat tires and they know someone who had five flat tires (the spare of course). Trust me, there is no way to beat them, you must learn to accept them. They will always try to find a way to inject themselves before you. So stop trying to fight it and make a game of it like I do!

I know that my life is great and I am determined not to let anyone deflate it. So, I have started to purposely talk about the awesomely positive things that happen to me. I do this while in the presence of my “ONE UPPERS”. In order to top me, they have no choice but to be even more wonderful. It’s a win-win situation. All that positive energy floating around can only attract more. You should try it!

Until next time… the Surly Mermaid.

Junk and Treasures

On Saturday past we decided to take a break from house renovations and fix-ups and go on a little road trip to search out some junk and treasures.

After a bit of googling, I found, what I referred to as my treasure map and asked L how far away all these places were and how long it would take. (For anyone living in Alberta or anyone that really wants to know we followed the Kalyna Country Antique tour – tidbit Kalyna means high bush cranberry in the Ukrainian culture). We did add one extra spot to our tour as we saw signs for an antique show – happy, happy, joy, joy… we left at 830am and arrived home just after 900pm. I will stop babbling now and show you our treasures… Continue reading Junk and Treasures

Without further adieu here are the 5 blogs I will be following this week….
