If our animal friends can show love, kindness, compassion, and acceptance of each other, then so can we. Humanity needs to wake up and realize that we are “One Family” and start accepting each other for who we are. Be loving, kind, compassionate, and forgiving. If we do these things, then we can create a peaceful world where there is no more wars, conflicts, destruction, starvation, and suffering. Through love, kindness, and compassion we begin healing ourselves and each other. ~ V.
My grandmother made soap this way at least once a month in the summer and they used it all winter long. It made your skin feel like satin.
Disclaimer and Important Safety Info. I put disclaimers on most of my posts, but in this case you should really take a moment to read this. Lye in its distilled form is extremely caustic, and it can easily eat through your skin, muscles, fat, and even the nerves without you noticing until it is much too late. Always cover exposed skin, wear eye goggles, and wear thick rubber gloves when making lye or handling it when making soap. Always use lye in a well-ventilated area. Be extremely cautious with it and you should be fine.
Furthermore, despite what you may have heard, vinegar is an absolutely terrible idea when you are burned with lye, as the reaction between small amounts of vinegar and burning lye will actually cause extreme heat, which will add a thermal burn on top of the chemical one. Rather than trying to neutralize the lye with vinegar, simply dilute the lye with as much water as you can by vigorously rinsing it and rinsing it as much as possible. I would recommend that you have someone else (such as a helper!) call 911 so you can focus on washing the lye until they tell you different. This website goes into the nitty-gritty of why this is, so please check it out if you aren’t fully convinced.

February 17 – Short bowel syndrome
An Okanagan woman living in Africa with her husband, recently gave birth to a born with a rare and deadly disease. When baby Aurora required surgery, only available in Ontario, and her health plans wouldn’t help fund the trip back to Canada — friends and family stepped in.
These kinds of outrageous hate crimes against young women should call for the death penalty. Pray for this girl’s recovery.

The scene is a familiar one across Venezuela. For three weeks, protests have gathered momentum throughout the country, building on widespread anger at a crumbling economy and the country’s out-of-control crime epidemic. Though a major opposition leader is behind bars — and police forces are cracking down — President Nicolás Maduro faces his biggest test since coming to power after the death last year of Hugo Chávez, the leftist populist leader whose 14-year-long rule has reshaped the country.

Be sure to Google and review all video and radio interviews done with ex-FED special agent Jim Garrow in the last 12 months. Urgent need to hear what he has to say and share it.

The Economic Collapse
February 21st, 2014
In order for our current level of debt-fueled prosperity to continue, the rest of the world must continue to use our dollars to trade with one another and must continue to buy our debt at ridiculously low interest rates. Of course the number one foreign nation that we depend on to participate in our system is China. China accounts for more global trade than anyone else on the planet (including the United States), and most of that trade is conducted in U.S. dollars. This keeps demand for our dollars very high, and it ensures that we can import massive quantities of goods from overseas at very low cost. As a major exporting nation, China ends up with gigantic piles of our dollars. They lend many of those dollars back to us at ridiculously low interest rates. At this point, China owns more of our national debt than any other country does. But if China was to decide to quit playing our game and started moving away from U.S. dollars and U.S. debt, our economic prosperity could disappear very rapidly. Demand for the U.S. dollar would fall and prices would go up. And interest rates on our debt and everything else in our financial system would go up to crippling levels. So it is absolutely critical to our financial future that China continues to play our game.

Celery is a strongly alkaline food that helps to counteract acidosis, purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, prevent migraines, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems. Celery contains compounds called coumarins which are known to enhance the activity of certain white blood cells and support the vascular system. Celery’s rich organic sodium content has the ability to dislodge calcium deposits from the joints and holds them in solution until they can be eliminated safely from the kidneys. Celery is a well known natural diuretic and has ample ability to flush toxins out of the body. Celery also has significant anti-inflammatory properties making it an essential food for those who suffer from auto-immune illnesses. It also contains significant amounts of calcium and silicon which can aid in the repair of damaged ligaments and bones. Celery is rich in vitamin A, magnesium, and iron which all help to nourish the blood and aid those suffering from rheumatism, high blood pressure, arthritis, and anemia. Fresh celery juice is one of the most powerful and healing juices one can drink. Just 16 oz of fresh celery juice a day can transform your health and digestion in as little as one week.
