- Here is an interesting article called How I Healed My Child's Cavity. As most of you know, my two oldest children have had terrible, horrible cavities in their baby teeth, such that I wanted to hide in a hole. We began instituting some of the protocol from Cure Tooth Decay and saw improvement, so now we've moved on to trying to do more, if not all, of the protocol. I could write a post on this subject, too, I suppose, but it could best be summed up as "Pray really hard until your son's rotten tooth falls out early." This is much easier than healing cavities. Of course, the mother who posted this was talking about an adult tooth.
- Apparently Europe is paving the way in health care once again. This time, they've outlawed countless herbal remedies, and likely made the remainder less affordable for the common folk. Don't let any of this fool you. It's true that some herbal remedies don't work as claimed, but the main reason for controlling allopathic medicines is because, if used incorrectly, they can cause great damage. Let's just say no one ever died of Oil of Oregano overdose. As someone who uses herbal remedies, balanced with other home rememdies, with regularity and success, I am deeply concerned. There has been a push for this sort of law in this country. I can only think that the appeal involves government control and possible profit motive--the Deadly Duo, so to speak--for herbal medicine is hardly dangerous.
- Cindy is continuing to blog through School Education. Don't miss Docillity and Authority, Part 2 as well as Masterly Inactivity. I'm reading through the latter today.
- Are any of you planning to see the movie Thor? I probably will, as my oldest is a big fan of Viking Tales and the like. Lars Walker from Touchstone Magazine's blog has explained how the movie is informed not just by Norse mythology but also by...the God of the Bible. Read his fascinating post here.
- If you recall, I referred to my ducks as the cutest hedge against inflation you'll ever see. Apparently, I'm not the only one thinking food products are a good hedge. A friend at my book group planted a bigger, better garden this year, sure. But that's not all. My dad sent me this one: Hedge Farm! The Doomsday Food Price Scenario Turning Hedgies Into Survivalists.
- I find I need to learn to refill my own printer ink. Here is where I ordered my ink and tools in case any of you are interested in doing the same thing.
