What do you mean You Don’t Eat with a Meal Specific Soundtrack blaring in the background? Let me fix that….
Grow your own health!! Love it.
Nature is amazing, I love plants. Not only does just looking at them produce a calming effect, they are beneficial to us in every way. From food, to medicine, glue and rope, plants give us everything we need. These are my top five favorite plants because they are amazing, easy to grow or find and have many uses which are especially valid in TEOTWAWKI. Here are my favorite plants found in the wild, and in the garden, and the reasons why.
Garlic is great for two reasons, it is a food and a medicine. All parts are edible except for the skin and woody stalk among the cloves. It is the easiest thing to grow and cheap to do so as one clove produces one head. In the garden, it also is said to repel rabbits and moles.
The health benefits are numerous to using garlic as it is reputed to have antibacterial, antimicrobial, diuretic, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Not only is it flavorful, but beneficial in the prevention and treatment of many common ailments.
“There are many miracles in the world to be celebrated and, for me, garlic is the most deserving.” - Leo Buscaglia
Here are some uses for garlic:
-insect repellent when ingested in larger amounts or when rubbed on topically, treatment for bee and wasp stings
-cholesterol treatment when ingested in higher amounts

-remedy sore throats, cold hands and feet, earache, tight headaches

O Stacked Wine Creators….You Do Something to Me…
What is a bottle of wine, really? Four glasses of the good stuff. But unless you’re drinking wine in your house or at a fancy restaurant, chances are you don’t have a corkscrew or stemware on you.
Stacked wine eliminates the need for both. Each 750 mL “bottle” of Stacked wine consists of four individually-sealed, perfectly-measured 187 mL plastic glasses of wine. So the next time you’re out for a hike or a picnic in the park, try it! Stacked Wine might not be the classiest way to serve it up, but it’s way more convenient than lugging a bottle or carrying cups.
Stacked wine is available in California Merlot or California Chardonnay for $15 per 4-pack bottle. Unfortunately, the company can’t ship the wine outside California yet, but there are plans to branch out elsewhere soon.
Wow…this is the craziest tattoo of all time! Of all time!!!!
The British Always Invent the Cool Stuff…the story of Brunch
The next time you’re enjoying a delightful brunch, be sure to clink your glass to the meal’s inventor, Guy Beringer, and his inspiration: the hangover.
The English writer first proposed the idea for the mixed meal in his 1895 essay “Brunch: A Plea.” In it, Beringer defended those nursing their Sunday morning hangovers.
Instead of rousing folks from bed and confronting them with a heavy spread of meat pies, Beringer proposed a midmorning compromise: a hybrid meal that could lead with tea pastries and segue into meatier dishes. That way, brunchers wouldn’t be forced to stuff rich fare down their gullets. Instead, they could slowly shake off their headaches and calm their gurgling stomachs. If someone needed to chase the meal with a hair-of-the-dog cocktail, nobody would judge.
Best of all, Beringer believed that friends could share their debauched tales of the previous evening. “Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling,” Beringer wrote. “It makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings.”
But for all of his pleading, Americans weren’t quick to swipe the idea. The delicious British invention took 30 years to catch on in the States, but we’ve been enjoying Bloody Marys with our pancakes ever since. Thanks, hard-drinking Englishmen!
Anyone for Blunch?
In its earlier years, the word “brunch” didn’t have a monopoly on describing midmorning meals. In 1896, the English magazine Punch warned readers, “The combination-meal, when nearer the usual breakfast hour, is ‘brunch,’ and, when nearer luncheon, is ‘blunch.’ Please don’t forget this.
Imagine the money, the thought, the man hours, and the people that it would have taken to create this…The WORST Vimeo Vid of ALL time. If you watch it for the full ten minutes like I did, trust me, you will lose sight in your left eye, and possible become sterile.

Did anyone else know that you can make smoke come out of your Fingertips?
It’s true! Cause EBAY says its so!
A harmless chemical paste, that is secretly spread on your thumb and fingertip. By merely rubbing the fingers together, the unseen paste creates a cloudy substance that looks exactly like smoke. Can be done impromptu at parties, clubs, etc.
