Food Matters

We watched the DVD, Food Matters, a documentary about cancer and foods that heal. While I disagree about some of the "detoxifying procedures" they mention. I do agree with the superfoods and vitamins they recommend we add to our diet. They are strong advocates for eating raw foods and I could not agree more. Since I started more eating salads, green smoothies, sprouts and live foods; I have more energy. Fresh foods that I grow or buy Organic are the key. They are full of minerals your body needs to heal itself. I wanted to get the word out about nutrition and your health. Instead of doctors and Rx's you can eat to your health. I know several people who are going though cancer. Yet their doctors never talk about nutrition. These cancer patients eat jello, pudding and bread in the hospital, no wonder they feel bad. They need high quality nutrition and vitamins and not filler foods. This DVD is worth taking the time to watch and learn from. And pass along to your loved ones who might want to improve their health. And this good nutrition is a change in your lifestyle as well. I grow sprouts, wash and process veggies. This means I take the time in my kitchen, evaluate my foods and make room for all these fresh foods. I no longer buy packaged nor canned foods, too many chemicals. I can my own foods so I control what goes into them. I am responsible for my health and well being.
If you watch this DVD please read Politically Incorrect Nutrition by Michael Barbee for a sounding board of reason and facts.

Big Black Beetle

I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.

Hoofing It

The other day a friend came by to give a hoof trimming lesson to my neighbor. She raises champion goats and offered to show us how to trim goat hooves. The auction goats had neglected feet and needed serious trimming. They must have been confined for a long time to get at this level of neglect. So after a goat holder was made the trimming lesson began.
The auction goats poor feet. They caused her to walk poorly and not be able to forage since walking hurts.
The hoof wall has folded under the hoof. Careful trimming with very sharp trimmers.
My husband on the left, Cathy and Rick on the right. Goat audience around the show.
Left hoof is after and the right hoof is before.
The goat thinks about all this.
Serious fold over on the second older female goat. After the trimming both goats walked better.

Puffy Adder

This is what was lying across my driveway last week. It was a spreading adder or spread head as is locally called. It is a non venomous snake that eats toads and frogs.
I liked its markings
I got the whole hiss song and dance from this snake. It did not want to move off the driveway.
Such a cute tail all curled up.
