Last I left you, I was talking about doing some research at the library on microfiche.
Do they even have that anymore?
Those dinosaur machines where you run the film on a glass tray and watch as it projects onto the screen...and if you're REALLY good, you can get the reel over to the right and use the buttons on the machine to let it auto reel. (Or you can be like me and put it on upside down first or backwards and have to do the whole thing by hand lol)
So I digress...there I was looking for this obituary in the Virginian Pilot microfiche from 1973 And there he was!
I didn't know he was married to my mother's birth sister at the time. I just saw "Survivors include" and saw her name. I didn't know who she was yet tho.
The name I was most interested in at the time was his name JR.
Yep, he had a son with a previous wife who was named directly after him but with the suffix JR.
I had to find this man!!! This was the only living relative I knew from my birth father's genetic side of the family. Back to the phonebook!!!
Normally in this spot I'm going to give you interesting information about a specific food and what it can do for you. Today is a little different, because tomorrow is FEBRUARY 1!! What's February 1??
Well, it's the start of my second challenge on Facebook!!
Here's where we challenge each other to eat 4 cups of fruits/veggies a day!! It's not as hard as you think...a good grocery store trip might need be in order, but you can totally do this!!! Ya never know till you try, right?
I saw this picture online and I was inspired to write this particular piece.
Doesn't ANYTHING strike you as ODD about this picture???
This says "Eat all the crap you want. Take a pill and it won't hurt you."
WRONG! The crap will STILL hurt you! The reason your body is hurting in the first place is it's a SYMPTOM of being mistreated!!! Hey, guess what? If you take away the cause, you won't have the symptom. Gee, that's a novel idea lol
Also, speaking of symptoms, those medications have SIDE EFFECTS, some of them extremely dangerous!! Google the most recent information on acid blockers, and you'll see exactly what I mean!
Ok so what I CAN do for you is give you some recipes that I've tried (and they rock) for you to eat on Superbowl Sunday (GO PATRIOTS) <---no hating, yo....
