Has anyone tried A2 milk? Easier for your digestion-tastes good too. Kind of expensive...here it is $4.49 per 1/2 gallon. But worth it, if you think you have lactose or other digestion problems, like gas or belching with regular milk.

Interesting -- after reading the list, I just had to check out my favorite snack, Corn Chex. it gets a B+ on this website. Not enough fiber one of the drawbacks.

Be a Fiber Fanatic!

Eating more fiber allows you to feel more satisfied while stabilizing blood-sugar levels, helping to fight off hunger and cravings. Diets high in fiber have been linked back to lower bodyweight, decreased disease risk and improved longevity. Aim for a minimum of 25 grams daily.


MAINTAINING... it's what I do.

"When our desire is to give instead of get, our core belief is that we have so much abundance, we can afford to give it away. The subconscious mind takes its clue from our core beliefs, and brilliantly manufactures situations that reflect them. Our willingness to give directs the universe to give to us." ~ Mariane Williamson

Did you know according to Dr. Joel Wallach online (see on YouTube "the gluten killer"), more than 600 diseases, health issues, ailments are caused by eating gluten. Not just a fad! Been gluten free for 2 years now, and feel much, much better!!!

I was reminded of how great parsley is when chopping it to make dressing the other day. We've got Italian parsley growing in our garden and I really need to get out there more often and put it in salads, etc. DH suggested cutting some and putting it in a vase in the windowsill to make it more readily available. It's wonderful for freshening breath and here's an article about some of the other healthy benefits:

I put lavender oil on our skin to heal wounds, bruises and put it in our shampoo. We have thought about a diffuser and getting into more essential oils, but busy paying off hospital bills right now.

I've been swimming in several oceans: Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, Mediterranean Sea
(in explanation - 25 years married to a US Navy sailor) and I would swim in the ocean again.

Still not entering a shark cage.

To answer all the shark and ocean questions: Nope, to shark cage, rescuing anyone in the water from a shark, since I wouldn't be in the water to begin with!
When we saw Jaws in 1975, we NEVER went into the ocean again. Seriously! With all the boat accidents here lately...not sure I'd get in a boat anymore! emoticon
But, I am fascinated by sharks and love to watch tv shows about them!

I really wanna thank all of you for your no answers in rescuing me if I was attacked by a shark, however when it comes to swimming in the ocean, I would do so where the water was warm, otherwise I would not be so inclined in colder water......

Hey! What's the big deal!?..... emoticon Of COURSE I would go down there in the cage to watch those sharks swim around me! BUT I am no weenie, so I would much rather just dive right in wherever they are and not try to hide from them! .. Plus I know even if I got attacked this is such a great team you guys would all dive into rescue me!!! RIGHT?? ...

….:::QUESTION OF THE DAY …::

(hint) There's something fishy goin on .. What could it be?

…..This Sunday starts SHARK WEEK!!

.

QUESTION IS: Let's all swim backwards and be 25 again! IF you had the chance, would
you go where sharks are in a cage?




As much as I am fascinated by sharks, especially the Great White, I will openly admit to being
chicken and watching the TV footage instead!

We mainly stick around home for our vacations...since living in FL the last 13 years, we are always exploring new places here and lots of beaches! Once hubby retires in a couple years, we hope to travel more then. Just saving our money for that big vacation then!

I love lighthouses and one of our nicest vacations in the past was going up to Split Rock Lighthouse in MN. That area is the most gorgeous area! This pic is off the internet ( I have pics but not on my computer):



We walked down among those trees too! That was after we saw Sting (the singer) in concert in Minneapolis! Best time ever!

This year we took a trip the end of May. A nephew graduated from the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO., we took in the festivities there. Then we headed down to Farmington, New Mexico to spend a few days with a cousin of mine. Love that area! On the way back home we went through historic Wolf Creek Pass in southern Colorado then headed back North and spent a couple of days with our youngest daughter before coming back home.

This summer no big trips were planned due to life getting in the way. But we did take a 3 day road trip to the western part of Michigan. Saw some quaint little towns and enjoy going to the casino. Was just nice to get away from the city life.

Hubby and I went to Hawaii for our 40th. Best trip ever, and someday want to return.

I have never been to the beach. So my inland self love the sound of rain when we are lucky to get anymore, crickets chirping at night, coyotes howling, birds singing and loud claps of thunder.

I too love the sounds of the ocean and birds I also like laughter and music .There is nothing better than the sound of a loved one's voice.People sometimes say don't you get tired of your husband yelling at you and I say "No ,he doesn't know he is yelling he has hearing loss from being near incendiary explosive devices in the last few wars and 33 years of working on fighter aircrafts ,but he is alive .He can't always hear me and I repeat myself a lot but he is alive"

I love the question and all the answers!

I would add the sounds of singing (especially a cappella) and the wind in the trees (which can also sound like the ocean).

I prefer the sound of a brook or a creek to that of a mighty river.



I once knew a child who laughed in his sleep. That was a delightful sound!

In our rooms
filled with laughter,
we make hope
from every small disaster.

My list looks the same--birds, oceans, rain and thunderstorms (they actually help me sleep).
The only thing I can add is laughter. People laughing is just beautiful, to me, it is the epitome of humanity.

I'm with you Jan, the ocean sounds, the waves crashing into the shore, are my absolute favorite. I also like listening to American Native flute sounds. It is so calming. I have several CD's and cherish them. When I just calmness around me, I put them on.
