MY BODY has finally kicked me in the butt...so I have changed my lifestyle and am fully vegan...

 It has taken me years  to finally work myself in to becoming a diabetic...and I sure worked hard at it! My father is ( was now) and my grandmother died from it, and so now it's my turn. I knew it was coming, I could feel it in my body...

My  mother always worked at feeding us the 'right' foods.  My father  got acutely ill with rheumatoid arthritis, and my mom, an avid reader, found a cook book, Dr. chong's arthritics cook book. She put my father on it immediately and within just  weeks he was up and around again like nothing had happened. It ended up he was allergic to red meat. Today he is a vegan by his own choice. So really my  mom was the one who started all this! God rest her precious soul..

 The McDougall health plan for life, puts diabetes right out of your body... literally...so instead of weight loss being my motivation, which it should have been, but that has been a losing battle for years...health has been my motivation. Having been a registered nurse for 20 yrs,   I saw the complications and devastation it has on one's body, and personally I am not interested in being put in the grave piece by piece. If you could just DIE from eating  bad, that would be ok, but it doesn't really work that way most of the time... ultimately you suffer horrid complications, huge medical bills and pharmacy bills and overall have no good quality of life...

Dr. McDougall's specialty is diabetes... his success with putting it in remission is  so amazing and my father proves it.. he has no problem with it anymore. So I began on my new  healthy eating plan  on tuesday, Nov 30..my blood sugars have already stabilized and I am no longer blurry eyed,  tired, hungry, thirsty, or shaky... it is amazing what the right fuel for one's body can do for ya... I have so much energy, and it feels so good...ALL without medication I might add.

Though I am a zealot for this health plan, it will stay with me unless someone asks me about it.  People don't want to change, especially the fuel they take into their bodies. It's all up to the individual what diseases they choose to  work towards or if they prefer premature death over a healthy long life. I for one  am not interested in cardiac bypass surgery...I have seen this health plan work miracles in several of my family members...it only took a huge kick in my pants to get me going...

 Thanks for listening... here is his website in case anyone has been inspired to be healthy..


have a great day and a fabulous life!!

BUY BP~if they go bankrupt, guess who foots the bill?

After much thinking, exploring and decision making...I decided as a small business owner, it is my responsibility to BUY BP gas. The small business owners who bought the BP franchises did not cause the explosion, encourage the negligence by the company, and BP only requires you to buy BP gas for 10yrs, then you can get it from wherever you want.

If BP goes bankrupt we will have to foot the bill for this travesty.

There is nothing this present govt wants more than to see small business fail.. so I feel it is my duty, desire and decision to help them stay afloat and keep their businesses..

I ONLY BUY BP GAS! they also kept their prices reasonable while EXXOn the big man on the block, was always $.15-.25 cents more per gallon.. laughing all the way to the bank because they can.

JUNE! already

Amazing how quickly time passes as you get older. It was just APril!

My duck, who is about 7yrs old at least...found a friend. His friend is quite friendly and comes up to you to be fed his cat food. Yes cat food. I bought cracked corn for years, but my duck insisted on feeding with the barn cats. It's pretty cute actually, and how he has brought his friend.
We call them Laurel and Hardy. I assume when they disappear in the creek, they are over Laurel's house for a while..

i love ducks

Butterfly on my horse's mane

CAn you see the tiny spot of black on the horse's mane?

I was grooming one of my horses today, when i came across a dark spot. It was a butterfly...he sat the whole time I was there. He was a beautiful black and purple. When I went to get my camera, there was a new butterfly there! orange and multi colors.
