You pick up a lot of information these days, TV, internet, books. there’s a constant flow of news, images and info bombarding us constantly from every side. Sifting through it and finding out if something is true, or false is becoming extremely time consuming as more and more articles are published that seem intent on swaying us in one direction or the other.

It’s a fact that……….

    Canned goods were developed by Napoleon,as field MRE s,are less expensive,are even used by Soviet cosmonauts instead of more expensive freeze dried stuff.I shop at Aldi s ,where its the cheapest,and u bag it,all store brands,if your lucky enough to have one around.
    Settlers ad no refrigeration,so dry goods were the mainstay to plan menu s around.
    A tblspn of baking soda to a 5 qt /2lb batch of beans orks wonders on gas problems,softens water,and batch of beans,from the nite before in soaking process,eliminates 80% of gas.Also works in rice to soften a 45 min cooking of 5 qts at a time,from cold til done.Substitute rice for grits,you may live longer,with the new GMO corn.I use coffee cremer in the mac n cheese,as well as soybean oil instead of margarine /substitutes.TVP can be added to meats as extender,www.bulkfood.com has some in quantity…

    These are all great ! My mom used to have us bite on a clove if we had a toothache, and it works great.

    Regarding # 27, I was wondering how one could get a snake to eat a tablet ? (smile)

  • arleen cook

    Honey is also good as an antibiotic, better than sugar. I live in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and we have had no bubonic plague that I remember in the last 40 years I have been around here. Also, how do you get the snake to take the Acetaminophen? lol
