This is Johnny. He is my sweet uncle. He has been missing for 27 years. He was found dehydrated and homeless in Arizona Thursday and taken to an emergency room and after identifying him and looking for family the nurse gave him a phone to FaceTime with my mother. Our family is rejoicing that he has been found and that he is being given medical care but because of corona we can’t get into see him… so please celebrate with us his being found and please pray for his continued recovery and that we can be reunited as a family very soon. Most people don’t know this but when I was trying to come up with my band name for Plumb… “a girl named Johnny“ was one of the options, named after him… because he is my first memory of loving music… He and his acoustic guitar. With chewing tobacco in his cheek and a wad of bubble gum in mine he taught me how to spit into a spittoon. 😂 He was fun and handsome and funny and kind and I’ve missed having him in my life… and I am so thrilled that not only has he been found but the joy that my sweet mama and her siblings are experiencing right now is incredible! #PrettySureASongIsComingOut ofThis
Have you noticed the price of water bottles these days? Well some how designers have convinced us that the container we tote our water in speaks volumes about who we are, how much we care about our planet and most of all how fashionable we are. Yep! There’s no doubt about it, the water bottle is the new accessory and mine is “cooler” than yours.
Just like wearing a fabulous pair of red shoes or topping an outfit with a fabulous jacket, your water bottle is the new fashion accessory that can complement your outfit and express your savvy chic style. There are now hundreds of colors and styles of bottles on the market, with gorgeous details, the kind of details you would see on a high end pair of shoes, a handbag or traditional accessory.
The water bottle carrier had a moment in the early 90’s when everyone one dawned a special purse-like pouch with a strap that allowed you to carry a large liter of water. The carrier was fancy. The bottle of water was not.
Now the trend is not about buying water and a luxury carrier for your cheap bottle, but hitting your spiket with an envious and beautifully designed water bottle that looks and feels luxurious.
If you haven’t bitten the bullet and bought a highend bottle, start shopping. The trend isn’t going away and the your bottle speaks volumes. Choose a bottle just like you would shoes and/or a purse.
You are worth the investment and toting a cool bottle will take years off of your look.
Emergency room doctors have seen it all when it comes to Independence Day related injuries and accidents! This year’s fourth of July is looking very different due to COVID-19 and more people will be doing fireworks from home than in previous years. Here are some recommendations from ER Doctors!
– Don’t use fireworks without protective eye wear – Take every possible precaution before using fireworks Like knowing which fireworks are legal in your area, have a water source readily available, make sure people are a safe distance away, etc.) – Sparklers may seem safer than traditional fireworks but you shouldn’t let small children hold them, and if they do supervise them closely. – Don’t buy or use fireworks sold in brown paper bags (often for professionals only) – Dress appropriately for fireworks display (a light jacket or long sleeves are recommended) – Never carry unlit fireworks in your pocket (there’s a potential of a nearby spark causing it to go off) – Should someone get burned, apply room temperature water to your burn, NOT ice. – Keep your shoes on They see lots of kids and adults with burned feet that stepped on coals that were dumped out or other hot items – Don’t use wire bristles to clean your grill They can break off and remain on the grill and end up in your food and eventually in your stomach. – Don’t squirt lighter fluid on your charcoal Many people lose their eyebrows, burn their face or hair or even clothing after doing this. – Stay hydrated – No one swims alone – Use sunscreen – Remember to practice social distancing and be mindful of others
A fun way to use coffee grounds in the flower garden is to experiment with the color of hydrangea flowers. It is common knowledge that sweet (alkaline) soil produces pink hydrangea flowers, while a bit of extra acidity gives you blue flowers.
If your plants happen to have pink flowers, feed them coffee grounds and check whether they show inclination for a color change. As we mentioned earlier, the acidity of coffee grounds is variable, so you might end up with flowers in a range of colors that fall between pink and blue on the same plant.
Remember that it is not the pH of the soil alone that controls flower color, but the ability of the plant to absorb aluminum salts from the soil which is enhanced by soil acidity. So if your soil is deficient in aluminum, you may want to add some aluminum sulfate for blue flowers.
When you use coffee grounds in your garden, whether it is from your own use or from the coffee shops, you are turning this organic waste into plant food that your garden will love!
