Do You Need A Lube Job?

Introduction:

How long would your car last if you neglected the maintenance?  Would you feel it of little importance to fill up with gas before going on a long trip?  And what sort of mileage would you get if your tires were under inflated?  If you didn’t get a lube job and rust protection for the winter, would your doors not squeak, and your floor not eventually fall out from under you?  If you didn’t change the oil, how long before your car breaks down?

Well…  Not much worry your car will fall apart because an engine light will go on at the first sign of trouble.  And we know what to do to avoid problems, and even come equipped with roman candles, a blanket, a cell phone, and even join The: AA association, and carry a number for a reliable tow truck service, just in case!

So why is it we take such good care of our cars,  and yet neglect the care and maintenance of our own bodies?  Is it in hopes our cars will get us to an incompetently staffed, crowded, low-budget Hospital in time?  We wouldn’t even think of putting used oil in our cars, yet we call last nights pizza slice breakfast!  We keep our cars temp. down with radiator fluid, yet do nothing to prevent ourselves from blowing out tops at the slightest provocation.  We wouldn’t put sugar in our gas tanks, yet load our bodies up with it without even a second thought.

The purpose of this blog, is to inform you of the various things we can to maintain the quality of our health through various sites I’ve researched for myself, and assure you that I wouldn’t ask you to take anything I wouldn’t take for myself.  The idea here, is that nature provides us with natural curative effects, as opposed to Doctors just masking symptoms to insure you’ll keep coming back, in much the same way a Mechanic would set one problem in the making while relieving you of another.

Naturally, there are ‘Nay Sayers’ : people with very little faith in anything trying to rain all over your parade.  Look at it this way.  When it comes to something as all important as your health, finding out what works for you, should be given a little more priority than your car because, how are you going to drive it if you’re dead?

Epsom Salts

Actually, it’s not salt at all, but magnesium!  The curative effects of epsom salts has been well documented for centuries.  You’ll find it at your local supermarket for less than a drug store will charge you.  The name comes from Epsom England, after people found that soaking in a hot water spring there, amazing curative effects were noted for much of what ailed them!  Take a gander at this sight for usage, and just what this miraculous substance can do when added to your bath water.

Milk Thistle

It’s no secret that so many of us have greatly abused our livers (The largest filtration system in your body), with enough alcohol to drown a herd of Buffalo!  But did you know that this unusual plant handles a lot more than sclerosis when it comes to diseases of the liver.  May I add that taking this, or any of these things, is no excuse to keep leading the lifestyle that caused the problem in the first place…

Turmeric

Turmeric contains a substance called ‘curcumin’.  This is the active ingredient that has had some measured success in the treatment of cancer of all things!  It’s available in pill form.  Then again, everything is!  You can buy it much cheaper at your supermarket in a vegetable form that’s a cross between a hunk of ginger and a carrot, or in powder form on the spice rack.

Liquid Chlorophyll

I can’t say enough about this stuff!  Zehrs carries it that I know of.  Since it is so close to the hemoglobin molecule in blood, it ensures healthy, red, blood cells.  In fact, it is the same as hemoglobin except that it swops out iron for magnesium at its center.  It also balances your PH: if your body is too acidic, you’ll develop cancer.  So an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure in this case.  It also boosts energy levels and acts as a gentle detox. It’s the basis for how all life on Earth started!  Read all about it!

Ionized Water

http://www.freedrinkingwater.com/water_health/health2/health-benefits-from-drinking-ionized-water.htm

I have a ‘Zero Filter’, and one of its 5 components is an ionizer for your water.  Many may wonder just what ionization does.  And the answer is: ‘Nothing!’  LOL!  All it does do, is keep your water’s PH level at exactly 7…  That means: ‘Neutral.’  Not alkaline and not acidic.  That’s not what you’ll be interested to hear on this page though.  There’s a video about all the contaminants that is in bottled and tap water. 

This guy rattles off over a hundred of them, and I think you should listen.  It will make your ears perk, that’s for sure!  The rest is just hype to sell his product at a ridiculously outlandish price…  You can skip that part.  He makes a point that there is no minerals left after filtration systems are through with them.  However, multivitamins are loaded with them.  And much cheaper to buy!  DAH!  Silly sales pitch…

CoQ10

http://www.lifeextension.com/Magazine/2015/4/CoQ10-Wars/Page-01

This is the food of mitochondrial DNA!  The body doesn’t naturally produce it.  However, The DNA at the nucleus of a blood cell is well protected from free radicals and oxidative stress by a tough membrane that won’t let any harmful substance in.  Mitochondrial DNA however, (your cells built-in factory) surrounds the nucleus, and is therefore vulnerable to attack and needs CoQ10 so that the cell will be healthy, and insures its full life-span of three months, not to mention how it protects your heart in a major way!

PQQ

http://www.alsearsmd.com/2015/03/the-most-promising-cancer-fighter-in-years/

Also available at Zehrs, if CoQ10 ensues healthy cells, PQQ actually builds new mitochondrial DNA in dying cells!  Actually, CoQ10 and PQQ work in tandem to protect the two most vital organs in your body:  Your heart, and your brain!  Taken twice daily, 300 mgs.of CoQ10 coupled with 20 mgs. of PQQ is all that is needed for full protection.  And the two will run you $90 a month in combination.  If you double up on them both, PQQ will move from the brain to eventually cure your nervous system as well!  Be sure, if anything else, you read about these important enzymes and how they work together!  vitamin C for instance initiates 2 enzymes, where-as PQQ initiates over 5000!

Omega 3

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/61-health-benefits-omega-3-fatty-acids

Not to mention fighting bi-polar disorder, Parkinson’s disease, and Old Timers, among just a few of the diseases that rear their ugly heads with more advanced age, if you don’t take it in supplement form, along with fish three times a week (Wild Pacific Sockeye Salmon and Sardines preferably), your brain will actually shrink with age!  Hear are 61 health benefits that this natural substance provides for…

Oxidative Stress and Free Radicals

http://www.nutrex-hawaii.com/oxidative-stressfree-radicals

There’s little sense in explaining about all of these miracle enhancements, if you don’t know why you must take them.  Is there?  Here is a small page that gives you the general rundown.  Now I’m not suggesting you take any of the things I’ve listed above: merely that you don’t put it in your car!  LOL!

Some may suggest that some or all of these things prevent sentience (cell suicide) in the body, there-by actually triggering cancer.  I’m 63 years old, so I have nothing to lose by experimenting upon myself.  I just don’t see ‘cell death’ as the road to extending life either.  Fell free to carry out your own research and make your own decisions accordingly.  I simply caution: ‘Nothing ventured, nothing gained!’  I think what you should really be asking yourself is: ‘Do You Need A Lube Job?’

My Big Fat Award

_0008_Achievement_3_Years

Hi;  I’m not here, not to thank WordPress, for an award I didn’t receive, for not being here for three years now!  Yay…  I’d also not like to thank the 40 million people on WordPress that don’t know I’m not here, nor could they give a rat’s ass, which neither do I.  Thanks for nothing!  As you can’t see, I’ve been in a real big hurry not to present this from three days ago…

My six loyal fans will tell you that it’s been a real trick for me to have them show up all at the same time, to laugh at my tripe.  Apparently, some people who’ve received no likes at all, have been jealous of my good fortune, spending less and less time here over the last three or four months:  I don’t care which.  I can’t tell you what this means to me.  There are children present!

So go away, don’t bug me, and I won’t even notice that nobody was ever here in the first place.  Feather more, I’d like not to acknowledge that Google doesn’t know I’m here either.  And Frankly, I Shirley am not insulted by what little intelligence I have left.  So, in closing, it has certainly been the thrill of a lifetime talking to myself!

The Difference Between Boys and Girls

  • Give a girl a tube of lipstick, and she’ll paint her lips and play: ‘Dress up’…
  • Give it to a boy, and he’ll use it in his coloring book!
  • Give a girl a stick, and she’ll marvel at the wonders of nature…
  • Give it to a boy, and he sees a gun!
  • Boys have a messy room!
  • Girls have a messy room, but it’s a good smelling mess…
  • Girls learn to talk before boys…
  • Boys first learn to make machine gun sounds!
  • Take a girl to Church, she’ll be humbled to learn about God…
  • Take a boy to Church, and he’ll manage to jump in every puddle on the way there, and back, even if you’re driving!
  • Boys may grow their nails because they forgot to cut them…
  • Girls grow their nails to dig them into boys arms!
  • If a girl should belch, she wouldn’t dare come out in public…
  • If a boy should belch, he immediately follows up with a dozen fake ones!
  • A girl knows when to speak, and when to be quiet…
  • A boy will fart in a sleeping Ministers face, just for a laugh!
  • If you throw a girl a ball, it will bounce off her nose…
  • If you throw a boy a ball, he’ll try to catch it, and it will bounce off his nose!
  • Girls like to play: ‘House…’
  • Boys like to burn houses down!
  • A girl will sit quietly in school, and listen intently…
  • A boy will run around the room all day pretending he’s a helicopter!
  • A girl will help a blind man cross the road…
  • A boy will wait until the light turns red, and take a picture of him being hit by a car!

Shutter Bug Hunger #2

All Dressed Up…

0207a

Where I live, it’s cold outside 8 months of the year!  It then becomes a challenge to even pick up your camera at all, without risking frostbite, just setting up and taking down your tripod outside.  Just try adjusting setting for instance without your gloves on: darn near impossible…

So you look at what appears to be ordinary things in your home, and begin asking yourself how you might make them look more colorful, interesting, unique, as wallpapers, just because you have an itchy trigger finger, and will certainly go right off your nut, if you can’t take a picture of something.  Anything, and make it work!  Not so easy as it sounds…

This plate rests upon the wall in my livingroom…  I can walk by it a dozen times and never notice the thing.  Yet doesn’t it occur to us all, one day or other, that what we possess says something about who we are, what we find tasteful or not, and how others may be enticed to connect with these objects in the same way that you might yourself?

What sets the above plate apart from other plates?  Is it the busy symmetrical pattern so common place in applets that produce mirror images in graphic programs?  Is it the bulge in the center that hints at how you may dress it up with foods, and what various kinds may be appropriate?

0209a

Yes, you’re right!  This is a rabbit’s head that also sits upon my livingroom wall.  But there’s a story behind it, as there is about everything in this series, that trigger memories.  A neighbor of mine made this as a matter of fact, and can fashion anything you’d so desire, from any kind of brass, gold, or silver, that you may bring to him.  He has exceptional talent with this type of art form! 

And it took me all of a half hour, just to clean this picture up, to its original, pristine appearance.  If you happen to own an expensive camera, you’d be surprised at the amount of detail it picks up, that your eyes are completely unaware of, until you see the image at full size!  Then there’s a million scratches, dust mites, wall dirt, spider webs, and God only knows what else.

0220a

Take this simple bowl for instance.  There were 6 million scratches on it!  (exactly 6 million?)  Yes!  And this was after I polished the silly thing up.  And the table I pose things on has enough scratches, to look like a map of New York’s subway system.  Yet I like the reflective qualities of wood surfaces!  So the perfectionist in me must remove them from every picture…  I quite literally rebuilt this table from scratch!

0215a

This comes from an entire set of dishes that elaborates upon the same theme of a family of busy rabbits, made in England and are quite expensive.  The story behind this particular dish, is that Leslie gave it to her Grandson ‘Austin’ for his first B-Day…  Your icons should fit neatly on the left, which is how I’ve set up most of the pictures in this series, which DOES have a part #3 coming to a computer near you BTW…

0221a

This too reminds me of something for a pair of little hands to more easily control and drink from…  Again, at least to me, it’s not so much the cup, as the blue reflections that set the tone for this picture.

0217a

As with all my pictures in the ‘Photos’ section, and there are quite a few, hard copies can easily be blown up to 18″  x  24″  without any loss of detail what-so-ever, or larger if you like!  And as always, you are free to do whatever you want with them, without charge or obligation.  At the very least, enjoy the slide show: compliments of: ‘Shutter Bug Hunger…’
