It has been an eventful year. We did have a small garden this year. We have had such hot weather during the spring and summer. It was difficult to keep it alive. We had very little rain. Our well went dry again. We used lake water to get us through the dry spell. Thank God for electric pumps and a kind landlord.
We had a hard time keeping our garden watered. We had rain water in the barrels and then we had a water tank. We planted everything in June direct into the garden. Some crops never had time to mature. We knew that was a real possibility, but we thought we would try none the less. We definitely reaffirmed our belief that it is necessary to plant early in the house and poly-tunnel
We have to Our cucumbers gave us a small harvest I was only able to pickle small batch of 6 small jars. Hubby and I were fighting over the pickles. They turned out so good. I can’t wait for this years garden. I plan to can a lot of pickles this year. We need to restock our shelves.
I was operated on in May. We could see Dixie, Our thirteen year old dog, was fading fast. We were hoping that we would have one more summer with her. When we left for the hospital, I asked her to wait to go until I came home. She held on for a month more. Coco woke us in a panic leading me into the living room. Dixie had a stroke in the night and was paralyzed on one side of her body….. We had to put her down. She will be missed. Today is her birthday.
We picked up this little bundle of joy yesterday. Hubby named her Lucy after Lucille Ball on sight. She has reddish brown hair and green eyes. Her name fits her personality. I heard Hubby telling her this morning,” You have some xplainin to do Lucy”. She had messed on the floor. I laughed. He did a pretty good imitation of Desi Arnez.
I need to up date My blog. I have to relearn WordPress because they have made so many changes on the site. I just wanted to up date you. I wish everyone a Happy New Year. I have been experimenting on making Sour dough starter. I have copied a lot of sour dough recipes from Pinterest. I have been experimenting on different recipes. I have been determined to learn the art of making bread. Hubby has been tickled pink with my progress. I will start to post some recipes soon.
A recent study from University of Canterbury in New Zealand shows that glyphosate (Roundup) and other commonly used herbicides can make bacteria quickly adapt and resist antibiotics like ampicillin and tetracycline. Glyphosate, 2,4-D (dioxin) and dicamba (recently approved by the FDA) appear to disable the antibiotics and trigger bacterial resistance to them.
Researchers tested E. coli and Salmonella, two of the most deadly and widespread bacteria in the world, and consistently replicated their results
The dosage required to induce antibiotic resistance was small, comparable to the concentration found in household use or agriculture, but higher than the concentration of incidental residue found in food. However researchers cautioned that people could easily reach this threshold by consuming large quantities of food with small amounts of residue, through children and pets exposed to weed killers used on lawns or via livestock pastured in spray drift zones.
Growing antibiotic resistance is already increasing…

2014 Clinton Foundation tax return. They took in $177 million, donated $5 million, spent $86 million doing it, and kept the $86 million change
The truth about the Clinton foundations
‘Before reading this, find a big, strong clothespin. Check that. Find a large steel industrial clamp. Clamp both nostrils shut before you begin reading, as a stench is going to fill the room the likes of which you have never experienced before and will never want to experience.
I’m not an accountant, but how the hell do you receive $177 million in contributions and spend $86 million in expenses to donate a measly $5 million in actual charity donations? The uber-corrupt Clinton Foundation managed to that in 2014. And they kept the $86 million change! WTF!?
From Thomas Ventimiglia
This should be investigated: Spent $86 million in salaries and expense to donate $5.1 million.
Read it again!
And when she didn’t win, the donations completely stopped and they closed the business.’

New information on Polio Cure
Smoke, Mirrors and the Disappearance of Polio
Dr Suzanne Humphries (2011)
In this presentation, board certified nephrologist Dr Suzanne Humphries traces the real reasons for the decline of poliomyelitis (aka infantile paralysis) in the US. She begins by describing the natural course of polio virus infection. Ninety-five percent of infected patients have no symptoms whatsoever, 4% have fever, headache and flu-like symptoms and 1% develop poliomyelitis (paralysis). The reason paralysis develops is because a defect in cell mediated immunity (CMI)* allows the virus to enter the central nervous system.
Humphries has spent years tracking down toxic environmental exposures known to impede cell mediated immunity. She has identified four that closely correlate with increased rates of polio infection in the 1940s and 1950s.
The first was increased use of infant formula contaminated with high levels of DDT and arsenic (in the forties and fifties, dairy cows were heavily treated with…

Proper storage of your harvest is essential
Proper storage of fruits and vegetables will insure you get the most usage from your garden and orchard crops.
Hint: Always remove any tight bands from your vegetables or at least loosen them to allow them to breathe.
Artichokes – Place in an airtight container sealed, with light moisture.
Asparagus – Place them loosely in a glass or bowl upright with water at room temperature. (Will keep for a week outside the fridge)
Avocados – Place in a paper bag at room temp. To speed up their ripening, place an apple in the bag with them.
Arugula – Like lettuce, should not stay wet! Dunk in cold water and spin or lay flat to dry. Place dry arugula in an open container, wrapped with a dry towel to absorb any extra moisture.
Basil – Is difficult to store well. Basil does not like the cold, or to be wet for…

What Hillary Clinton Really Represents
Empire Files (2016)
This early 2016 documentary is a virtual encyclopedia of Clinton family corruption. Based entirely on publicly verifiable information, it reveals how Hillary, especially, has based her political career on supporting legislation that specifically benefits her corporate and foreign donors. It also explores the identity of some of the 700 Democratic “superdelegates” who helped deny Bernie Sanders the Democratic nomination – despite overwhelming support he received from voters.
The Clinton Foundation was founded in 1997 with the alleged purpose of providing humanitarian relief after international disasters. Its real purpose, however, was to engage in “crisis capitalism,” a term coined by Naomi Klein in The Shock Doctrine. Following a disasters, such as the 2001 earthquake in India, the Clinton Foundation would waltz in and create a variety of for-profit projects enabling further exploitation of third world resources and labor by Clinton…
