BACK TO OUR HOUSE ON OTTOBINE ROAD....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

"I, like my Grandmother Cline and my Mother kept a diary and that diary was 

in that pile of papers and now those written down memories are gone forever...."

I cannot remember much else during that 4 or 6 weeks of basic training. 

I was certainly not accustomed to those drill sergeants telling me what to because, 

you see, I like making my own mind up of what I want to do.

I remember being in the mess hall (a sit down place where we ate 3 meals a day)

one day with maybe about 50 other trainees and eating in shifts. Our orders were 

to keep our head down and eat fast. The head cook (a army Sergeant or Sergeant

First Class) wore a dirty apron and surveyed his mess hall domain and all at once....

WORLD

I received a postcard from someone in the Netherlands. On the postcard it

shows the apartment complex in which the sender lives.

The sender volunteers in hospice and I thanked that person for that. Mother

was in hospice in her home and I know, first hand, what a difficult job that 

that can be.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hospice & Palliative Care

WHAT IS HOSPICE CARE?

"Formally speaking, hospice care is that which can be provided to patients 

with a life expectancy of six months or less. Rather than seeking a cure, 

hospice care aims to make their remaining time with us as comfortable and 

as meaningful as possible. This may mean pain relief and nursing care, 

but also includes emotional support and help with everyday tasks.

Under this broader way of thinking about end of life care, the needs of family, 

friends, and caregivers are also taken into account. Center for Hospice 

Care recognizes that loved ones are also on a difficult journey and may benefit 

from support, expert advice, and services that we can provide.

Inpatient, outpatient, and respite care."

"F.B.I. analysts are examining a new cache of emails discovered on the 

computer of the estranged husband of Huma Abedin, above, a top aide to 

Hillary Clinton.

It is unclear whether the review will be completed by next Tuesday,

so intense that even governmental institutions have been swept into the 

appearance of partisan fighting."

"Democrats have been calling for the F.B.I. to discuss investigations into 

whether Mrs. Clinton’s opponent, Donald J. Trump, has had dealings with 

Russia. But law enforcement officials say they have yet to find any such links.

accounting technique — a “stock-for-debt swap” — to avoid reporting 

hundreds of millions of dollars of taxable income in the 1990s."

Artificial sweeteners: sugar-free, but at what cost? 

Excerpt from full article:

"Back to sugar?

Maybe sugar isn’t too bad after all. It’s all in how it’s packaged.

“Sugar-containing foods in their natural form, whole fruit, for example, tend 

to be highly nutritious—nutrient-dense, high in fiber, and low in glycemic load. 

On the other hand, refined, concentrated sugar consumed in large amounts 

rapidly increases blood glucose and insulin levels, increases triglycerides, 

inflammatory mediators and oxygen radicals, and with them, the risk for 

diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses,” Dr. Ludwig 

explains.

I think I’ll have a glass of water and an apple."

My grandfather died of alzheimer’s disease at the age of 50. He used 

saccharin in every glass of tea he drank and he had it 3 to 4 times a day. 

The doctor told my family that he thought the disease was due to the 

saccharin. What are your thoughts? I was a small child, he died in the late 80’s.

Thanks,

Matt

Artificial sweeteners used to flavor food and pleasing to basically are 

suitable for people with diabetes and people who are in weight control.

There are many artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and saccharin.

One problem with sugars is that many products add an extremely high 

amount of sugar to sweetener the products. More intake means more 

calories , and more calories means illness and effects your health.

These artificial sweeteners are not worth the squeeze they contribute to more 

illnesses than any benefit.

One problem with sugars, however, is that many products add an extremely 

high amount of sugar to sweetener the products. This, in turn, causes the 

product to be higher in calories. Because consuming more calories means 

you must expend more calories to reduce or manage your weight, this can be 

of concern.

I have always used artificial sweeteners. Until, I read the book “Knockout” by 

Suzanne Somers. Artificial sweeteners contain harmful substances that trick 

our bodies. But, cancer seems to love sugar. According to the article, brown 

raw sugar is the same as white sugar. But how does raw brown sugar become 

white sugar; they chemically bleach color forming impurities into colorless 

ones and the process is called “Mill White” and is clarified with phosphoric 

acid and calcium hydroxide which combine to calcium phosphate. Just how 

much bleach do we want to consume. Now thankfully we have stevia products 

which is approved by the FDA and can replace sugar naturally. Soon it will 

replace sugar in diet soft drinks and will help all of those addicted to colas etc. 

Let’s all remember to eat healthy and eat lots of fruit, vegetables, milk/dairy 

just like the food color chart so we won’t still be hungry and crave sweets 

loaded with sugars.

Artificial sweeteners or energy used to flavor food and pleasing to basically 

are suitable for people with diabetes and people who are in weight control. 

For a person who play sports are not recommended frequent consumption of 

this product because in the sportsman the main feature of their diet is increased 

energy for physical activity and if not indicated any sweetener would cover 

that feature. However, there are some cases in which you can specify the use 

such as sports where weight is crucial to competition as in Competitive Art 

(synchronized swimming, rhythmic gymnastics, etc. or contact sports.

The recommendation for the daily intake depends on the product and the 

pounds of body weight that the individual has.

For human consumption are permitted three artificial sweeteners such as 

acesulfame K, aspartame and saccharin.

It’s funny because I had been using sweeteners in my coffee and tea for 

over 20 years and thought they were doing me good, but after some research 

I found that they are counter-productive for weight loss.

If you take the low carb diet for example, and use sweeteners, you will get 

a craving for sweet things much more often than usual, and we all know 

cravings are the curse of anyone watching their weight.

I think sugar is the better option if you MUST have a sweet tea, but cut it out 

all together…it may take you a month or so to get used to the non-sweet 

taste, but it will be worth it in the long run.

Thanks for the article, it underlined what I have thought about artificial 

sweeteners for a few years.

I have heard many things about artificial sweeteners not being good for 

your health. I know sugar in excess can be bad for you as well. My advice 

would be to use both in moderation.

There’s alot of harmful effects on the body with artificial sweetners for sure. 

It’s a violation of sound nutrition principles. More and more people are 

catching on now though, thank goodness!...."

US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

BBC Poll of Polls

CLINTON  49%       TRUMP  46%

Donald Trump keeps edging closer to Hillary Clinton with each day. I believe 

that the average polling some weeks ago was Clinton with 51% and Trump had 

42%. 

This may turn out to be a neck-to-neck horse race after all.

Although I told you I changed this section from IN THE FLOWER GARDEN 

WITH FORREST to WEATHER, I need to return to work in the flower gardens 

and the yard because of the weather.

Although it was only a high of about 50 degrees with a majority of sun 

yesterday, I was able (and bare footed as usual) to pull weeds, pull up some

dying sunflowers, sawed off some branches from a pine tree in the front yard,

and poison some more wire weeds. I believe I told you before that I will wait

about 3-5 days after I poison the weeds and then seed the same areas with

fall grass or Fiscus Grass Seed from Scots. 

The weather forecast from above will allow me to work, both today and 

tomorrow, in warm weather.
