Hello Followers,

Its TGIF – Friday!


As we approach the week-end there is something to remember, how are we going to treat our bodies.

We have a choice!

As toxemia can occur in countless different forms and degrees, not only through improper diet but

through stress, lack of fresh air and sunshine, etc.

And once the limits of body wisdom are exceeded the resultant effects may vary widely, which explains why there are so many different diseases listed in the medical textbooks and why doctors; not realizing the true nature of the problem.

Sometimes have so much difficulty deciding which disease is attacking their patient and which drug to fight it with.

When the usual blood tests are made for chronically sick people, the blood is assessed for various chemical compounds and elements and a count is made of the red blood cells (erythrocytes) and white blood cells (leucocytes).

A more thorough inspection of the blood under a microscope, however; reveals a lot more.

Such an inspection of the blood of someone chronically ill shows that the blood is polluted with sludge and that the red cells and blood platelets tend to stick together (aggregate).

So, that the blood becomes sticky (high viscosity); it cannot carry oxygen properly and it cannot circulate properly.

This, of course is a demonstration of a diseased environment within, reflected in medical tests by increased blood pressure, high sedimentation rate of red cells (ESR) and high platelet adhesion index (PAI).

We were designed to survive!

AUGUST – 12th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about August that’s so significant during this month?

National Middle Child Day – August 12, 2022

I chose this holiday, for I am the 2nd sibling of four.

So, I guess I would be considered the middle child.

If you have siblings, you know the rivalry can get real.

Middle children often get less attention from busy parents.

But despite the commonly held belief that their insecurity and resentment carries on into adulthood, middle children actually develop some critical skills that help them become successful adults.

Whether or not Middle Child Syndrome is real, it’s true that middle children, particularly in large families, can get overlooked in the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Started in 1986 by Elizabeth Walker, National Middle Child Day celebrates our middle siblings and reminds us that each child is precious and important.

National Middle Child Day is observed to honor that in-between child in the family.

The interesting thing is even larger families celebrate more than one middle child, too!

Like every other year, National Middle Child Day 2021 was celebrated on August 12th.

Middle children have a reputation for being ignored by their family, consequently growing up resentful, withdrawn, and disaffected.

Although research shows little correlation between birth order and personality, the stereotype has persisted in pop culture characters like Jan Brady, who epitomizes the embittered middle child.

In fact, middle children might have some distinct advantages in adult life.

The skills they develop as the forgotten sibling often translate into important qualities like empathy, diplomacy, and flexibility.

In fact, over half of U.S. presidents were middle children, along with many other successful leaders.

Resourceful and independent but also cooperative and patient, middle children often grow up to be good leaders and helpful teammates.

They can negotiate a variety of personalities but also do well on their own, and are known as risk-takers and independent thinkers.

Because they’re frequently left to their own devices, middle children develop a self-sufficiency less common in their older and younger siblings.

Until the 1970s, American families had an average of 2.5 children.

Today, due to modernization and economic and environmental pressures, fewer and fewer families have middle children, with the average American family having just under two kids.

National Middle Child Day began in 1986 as a way to celebrate the siblings who feel left out or unseen and give them a special day of their own.

Until now, it’s been celebrated on August 12.

Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.

Today is:


Continuing from last year the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown.

Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy.

A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CHAPTER 19; DANCING WITH PORCUPINES (last chapter of the book)


You may be in the midst of the fires of a difficult relationship and feel you are about to experience a melt-down.

You long for easy, kind, and caring interaction.

But you won’t have to give up on yourself and probably not on the relationship either, if you keep focused.

Sometimes just remembering that you are dancing with a porcupine keeps you alert, but not surprised when you get pricked.

If you have decided that the relationship you desire is worth working for, keep making the effort until your goal is achieved.

Your effort will be fully productive when you stop holding back in a defensive posture and determine to make the most of the possibilities within your grasp today.

Screwed-up relationships teach us to stop thinking in terms of forever.

We think of now, a day at a time, knowing forever will take care of itself.


Today Dan and I will be continuing on the book; ten-minute relaxation, For mind and body by Jennie Harding.

Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are with you at all times; your senses.

This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.

Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!

Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy; meditation.

By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.



Dan and I find it is important to look at each of our senses and the effects they can have on stress.

So, the next several posts; we will blog on them.

Starting on, TOUCH-

Emotional feelings of distress, anger or anxiety often arise from loneliness or isolation.

Touch, of given sensitively and with care; slows down the heart rate and creates a feeling of support.

A hug, or simply a reassuring hand on the arm; instils a sense of security and relaxation from stress.

The sense of isolation is lifted at once.

Tomorrow, TASTE-

The PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.

We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.

If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.


Knowledge is power, community is strength and positive attitude is everything. #knowledgeispower#knowledge#power#community#strength#positiveattitude#everything

Until Saturday, Life is uncertain.

Today you get a rose. Tomorrow, you feel the thorns.

But the end result is red, always.
