I'm posting some of the pictures I have taken that are special to me. This sunset is at Marine Park on Bellingham Bay.

This delicate toadstool grew out of fresh beauty bark. It was translucent and quite ghostly looking.

Here is Mrs. Spider preparing her snare to capture her meals.


Another sunset over Bellingham Bay


This one always gives me a chuckle. Toodles is pouting. I had just brought home Matilda, my little girl Yorkie. She was very small and afraid of everything so I was holding her a lot. Toodles very plainly shows how he felt about the whole thing!

This is not a recent photo, but a nice one I think. This big buck had been eating plums from the neighbor's tree. His twin was only about ten yards from me, eating pears. I stayed close to the house incase they decided to charge.


My famous 'Earthquake Cake'. I made this for company. And I served it too. Apparently the cake was too hot for the icing. It tasted good anyway.


I had tied these ribbons around my bird feeder because the squirrels kept knocking the top off. In this photo one squirrel slipped under the ribbons to feast on seeds, looking like he was wrapped as a gift, as a second was on the opposite side, it's bushy tail in the face of the one under the ribbon.

Here is my dear old Barnabas. It looks like he is thinking, "with mustard or catsup" as he looks at my cousins tiny critter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are some old remedies I found in Mom's recipe's. I make no claim that these will work and advise you ask your doctor before trying.

Note: Vinegar always refers to Apple Cider VInegar and honey is unpasturized.

2 Tablespoons vinegar, 2 Tablespoons Honey. 1 cup water. Drink before meals.

***

Arthritis

Add one cup unhulled barley to two quarts boiling water and soak three hours. Strain and refrigerate. Drink one cup daily.

***

Athsma

Simmer one cup milk and one Tablespoon fresh horseradish for 10 minutes. Strain and sip during attacks.

***

Bad Breath

Mix one Tablespoon allspice, a cup of hot water. Use mixture as mouthwash or gargle.

***

Baldness

Add two teaspoons cayenne pepper to one cup olive oil. Rub balding areas every day.

***

Colds

Mix one Tablespoon honey and one half teaspoon each of ginger and cinnamon with one cup scalded milk.

***

Cold Sores

To one cup boiling water add one teaspoon dried sage. Steep for 15 minutes and strain. Mix with one teaspoon ginger and sweeten with honey. Drink three cups a day.

***

Dandruff

Dissolve 10 asprins in a little water and massage into head. Then shampoo and rinse well.

***

Flu

Add one ounce dried sage to two quarts boiling water. Mix well with juice from one lemon, one orange one ounce honey. Steep one hour and strain.

P.S. I've never tried these remedies.
