Disgrace of a President

I try to stay out of politics. Everyone has their own opinion and I hate to get involved in arguments over such trivial nonsense, but I decided to share John Brennan’s remark from Sunday’s paper. Trump is known for his Twitter comments, but Mr. Brennan’s comeback I found awesome. Some people might not agree with me, but like I said everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Mr. Brennan wrote, “When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America…America will triumph over you.” This was directed at Trump. I admire Brennan’s courage for speaking out and I agree with what he said. It was also wrong for Trump to fire McCabe 2 days before his retirement. Trump will pay someday for all his hurtful remarks, bigotry, and slandering of women. God watches all and karma is a bitch.pexels-photo-129112.jpeg

The Legend of the Willow Tree

I came across this legend and thought it interesting with Easter approaching. After his marriage to Bathsheba, David felt happy and played his harp. Two angels appeared and accused him of great sin. ( I’m assuming because his wife wasn’t Christian?)  For 40 days and nights, David wept tears of repentance and  his tears formed two streams. From the  streams, sprang two trees.nature-water-garden-trees.jpg One was the willow, which weeps and mourns incessantly. The other was the frankincense tree, which sheds large tears in remembrance of David’s repentance.

Animals Sniffing Flowers Is The Cutest Thing Ever

Flowers have the most alluring smell, and not only to the impressionable bees. We have made a list of photos that show animals enjoying a whiff or two from a petal or bloom. Kittens, nature’s cuddliest critters, look even better when they’re enjoying the sweet scents of flowers. Same goes for bunnies!

Flowers use scent to attract various small critters to carry around their pollen and help them reproduce. Some plants will take any comers, while other have developed an…

Natural Remedies for High Blood Pressure

pexels-photo-905485.jpegLifestyle factors such as stress, diet, and lack of exercise can lead to hypertension or high blood pressure, but it could also be in your genes. Here are 4 natural remedies that can help.

  • Hibiscus tea has been used to lower blood pressure for decades. Researchers found that after 12 days of drinking this tea, it reduced systolic (top number) by an average of 11.7% and diastolic pressure by 10.7%.
  • Magnesium Threonate. The mineral form of this vitamin leaves your gut and gets into the bloodstream faster and is easily absorbed to lower blood pressure.
  • Garlic cloves and garlic supplements have been proven to lower blood pressure and is rich in antioxidants.
  • Beets and its juice also has been proven to lower blood pressure.

B is For Bustle

A large  derriere was in fashion during the Victorian era.  The early bustle took a simple form of a padded roll worn around the waist which originally held up the skirt off the ground. When worn, the bustle’s effect was completed with layered fabric, bows, trains, and tassels on the outer garment. In the late Victorian period, the bustle acquired a more pronounced backward pouf, reflecting one’s high status. Bustles were created out of coiled springs or horsehair bags held in place around the waist. Housework would have been impossible when wearing a 2-foot deep wire garment.

The above pictures show the differences thanks to the White River Museum. Mrs. Burke is in white and was high society. Her husband opened the Burke Museum near the UW in Seattle.

Beauty in Fashion

Women’s beautification and fashion had its period of suffering in history. The corset is a great example. Different forms of corsets started from the 16th century until it ended in the 20th century. The tight lacing constricted women’s waists and many believed it reduced their normal waist size by 2-4 inches. In the earlier eras, children also wore corsets for a ‘healthy’ shape. This didn’t apply only to girls. Boys were also affected. During the 19th century, physicians perceived health hazards related to corsets that resulted from fainting to detrimental effects on the internal organs. The Women’s Rational Dress Movement promoted healthier forms of dress such as bloomers, split skirts, and the bodice. However, some women contradicted the Movement, stating corsets provided women with a means of demonstrating their social status, self-discipline, and sex appeal. A ‘loose’ woman never wore a corset.

Within decades, fashion designers replaced the hourglass figure with an androgynous female form. The new idea was a slender, long-limbed, flat-chested look for the iconic flapper silhouette.

Foods that Fight Inflammation

The Nutritious Noodle

Inflammation is a normal bodily function that occurs when you are injured or you have an illness, such as arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, IBD or other common diseases. Inflammation has been shown to be the root cause of these diseases and many more. Evidence has shown that dietary patterns rich in foods of plant origin, such as fruits and vegetables, can help lower the risk of diseases.

Inflammation is not necessarily bad for the body, since it helps protect the body from illnesses and is the bodies way of healing. You may notice that the area of injury will swell, as well as become hot and red. This is the immune systems response to injury. However, if the immune system overreaches to illnesses or injuries, it may cause autoimmune disorders, causing arthritis or IBD.

Eating a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods can help promote a healthy inflammatory response.
