Bicarbonate sodas many uses
In the Food section of the New York Times, they printed an article in May of 2007 entitled, “Having a Snack? Make It a Holiday,” and in that article they wrote that December 31st is, “National Bicarbonate of Soda Day” (The New York Times).
That same article stated that the United States has over 175 days related to awareness of food and drink. According to The Wall Street Journal, none of the food days in the United States are federal holidays.
Since today has been dedicated to baking soda, another name for bicarbonate of soda, let’s examine the many uses for the fine white powder.

I just wanted to thank all my readers for sharing this year with us. I wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I can’t wait to share 2016 with all of you.
I am still struggling with baking bread. I am determined not to give up. I plan to try making another sourdough starter. I found this recipe which sound easier than the one I had before. It takes less ingredients to feed it each week.
Garlic Chicken yum!
Garlic has been used for many purposes other than food, throughout history.
- Homer mentions garlic in his famous Odyssey, saying that the deity Hermes, gave garlic to Odysseus as a protection against the goddess Circe‘s evil sorcery in which she turned men to swine.
- During the Roman Empire garlic was a symbol of the common people, since no noble would debase himself by smelling of garlic.
- Unfaithful Egyptian husbands relied on garlic’s unique “scented” properties, as they would chew a clove or two on their way home from visiting their mistresses, ensuring that a jealous wife would be unable to detect any stranger’s perfume.
- At the peak of Egypt’s power over 4,00 years ago, garlic was given to the laborers and slaves who were building the great pyramids in order to increase their stamina and strength.
- Modern day Germany and Czechoslovakia both have an old Proverb that says, “A bite from…

The Overview Effect is an amazing film and well worth your time to watch. I for one believe that the people of the world can work together to create change to save our planet. I do not believe that we need a one world government. All the countries of the world have unique qualities that should be cherished and maintained simultaneously humanity can work cooperatively for the planet.
I came across a wise man sitting on a fence,
I asked him several questions and his answers made good sense;
I asked him which of the world’s churches was closest to the truth,
He said you won’t find the answers in there my son, mankind has been cleverly fooled.
He spoke of mistranslations and about how mankind does not understand,
That the kingdom of God is not outside of yourself, you are your very own clan;
You are the product of divine genealogy, not just the physical but the spirit,
But mankind is so distracted by outside noises, most of them cannot hear it.
He said, I don’t follow what the Church says, since I found out it was wrong,
It’s an outdated broken record, singing an erroneous song,
Instead I prefer to listen, to God speak through my soul,
That God resides in my Sacred Heart, is all I need to know.
The church has killed me before, for not buying into its lies,
Because it’s ruled by darkness clothed in an angel’s disguise;
The High God of unspeakable energy, the God we cannot describe,
Does not need to keep man in guilt and fear, imbalance does not serve the Light.
God does not dwell in negativity, God is the Creator of Light,
So who is the source who uses religions as tools, to keep man trapped in night?
Who is this wolf in sheep’s clothing, who has pulled the wool over man’s eyes?
It’s also known as the veil and to shred it would be very wise.
Do you know you’re a co-creator, along with the Spirit of God our Creator?
You create with your thoughts and actions; are you a lover or you a hater?
Are you guided by a higher power or are you ruled by a controlling church?
Are you mired in guilt-riddled stagnation? Are you ready for re-birth?
Baptism by water or fire, realizing the Christ within,
Awakening to the Collective Consciousness and rejecting the notion of sin;
Am I a misguided heretic, working for God undercover?
Or am I a pawn of the Church’s darkness? That is for you to discover.
No one can tell you what is right or wrong, only you will know,
When you stop looking for answers outside of yourself and ask for them from your soul;
God placed a gift within your soul, the glorious kingdom within,
And when you discover that treasure inside of yourself, your true life can begin.
