Hi all, just wanted to make a short post - life has become extremely busy lately and it seems as I have no time to post AND read my favorite blogs. (Thankfully) nothing huge or extremely exciting has happened to post about, and I'd much rather read everyone else's blogs so I've decided to spend more time doing that. Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope it has been an enjoyable visit. Good bye and God bless :o)

Total lunar eclipse

This is happening right now! I just came back inside (Brr), it is soo cool-looking but I can't get it to appear on my digital camera! What a bummer! I had forgotten about it, but I'm glad Megan remembered!! Here are some pics we took within the last half hour:

A Coincidence?

I found this on Sweetpeas site and thought it was worth sharing :o)

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye...and science shows that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart is red and has four chambers. All of the research shows tomatoes are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds are on the nut just like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop over 3 dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Eggplant, Avocadoes and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats 1 avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? .... It takes exactly 9 months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.

Onions look like body cells. Today's research shows that onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.

"The news isn't that fruits and
vegetables are good for you, it's that they are so good for you, they can save your life." David Bjerklie, TIME Magazine, Oct. 2003 _

Baking Breads

It has been too long since I last posted, but man have we been busy! I found an extremely easy recipe for beer bread, so we've been experimenting with different flavors of pop (soda). First, we made it with vanilla cream soda - not much flavor there, and we tried Dr* Pepper - you could really taste the pop in the aftertaste, and we had Sprite, it was the best. We also made homemade breadsticks, and we are now baking up some of Applebee*s blonde brownies - YUM. I got a recipe from a girl at work for pop cake that we're gonna try too. I would show you some pictures, but the battery in the camera is dead, and I can't remember to charge it. Maybe I'll go do that now. Have a great night!

Photobucket**UPDATE** Katie is the winner! Thanks to every single one of you who entered my contest! It was so much fun! Katie, please e-mail me your mailing info within 3 days so I don't have to pick another winner. Congratulations!! :o)

Just wanted to post that I am now going to go through all the comments and delete double entries and entries that aren't linked to blogs or list an e-mail address. If I can't reach you, then it's not fair to be in the running for the prize. That only makes sense - right?
