Natural Health & Wellness / Re: Fluoride . . . . Harmful to Child Development

"Higher levels of urinary fluoride [in women] during pregnancy are associated with more ADHD-like symptoms in school-age children, according to University of Toronto and York University researchers."

“Our findings are consistent with a growing body of evidence suggesting that the growing fetal nervous system may be negatively affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure,” said Dr. Morteza Bashash, the study’s lead author and researcher at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health."

"A Zogby poll taken in 2008 found that 22 percent of Americans said they thought a State had a right to secede from the United States. Ten years later in 2018, a Zogby poll found that 39 percent believed a state had a right to secede, and 29 were unsure. That means 68 percent of Americans are open to consider the right of secession. Only 32 percent thought that military force could be used to force a state back into the Union."

"But what if we think in decentralist, Jeffersonian terms? What if instead of Red and Blue states fighting for control of the center to stick it to their opponents, they cooperate with each other to reduce central power and strengthen state sovereignty, even to the point of recommending secession? Neither can ever control the whole or impose a one-size-fits-all regime on an aggregate of 328 million people. Yet the effort to gain sufficient power at the center to do so means that every power gained in victory by one party will be augmented for its own purposes when it takes control. And so with every turn, more power and revenue is sucked to the center leaving less wealth and liberty at home–and leaving both sides more frustrated and desperate."

"Containment around Hillary’s crimes has been breached and all that’s left now is for the people close to her to start turning on each other.  The mid-terms were their last, best hope for a stay of execution."

This article makes it sound as if that hope is gone. If so, Thank Q;

We are going to be having really chilly weather coming down from Canada .It came blowing in a heckin' after Thursday night's storm rain finally cleared. Thank goodness we have a sump pump in our basement. The ground is so saturated it  can't take much more.  We brought in our house plants yesterday because they don't like 40s at night for long stretches. We have a grow light over a table in the basement where they will spend the winter. We managed to wrestle our huge Night Blooming Ceres to its winter home in front of our south facing living room triple window. It did love all the rain and had beautiful white flowers, as many as 7 at a time, scenting the whole yard several times during the summer. It's gotten so big that someday it will be too big for us to get through the living room door and then I don't know what we'll do.
We still have lots of animal visitors each night checking the back yard and deck for whatever they can scrounge. There are foxes,deer a skunk, raccoons, a possum and who know what else. Not surprising I guess, because even though we live in town, there is a large woods across the street from us. Have a great day.

Good morning, Diane, I have been watching with interest about this storm.  I was thinking of you and hoping and praying that you would be okay.  Thanks for posting so we can know how you are doing.  Too bad about your vegie garden.  We never really got around to putting on in this year so I miss the fresh tomatoes also. 

Take care.

and so it is raining here...again.This time it's Michael's rain bands arriving here as it swings east. No wind to speak of, but we just don't need any more rain.  My yard has been ruined and the plants are drowning.
 The Florida panhandle sure got hit hard didn't it? So sad.
  I just cleared out the last of my veggies for the season...made a big kettle of tom sauce to finish off the tomatoes and peppers. I surely will miss the fresh tomatoes.  We will really chill down here once this weather clears. Highs in the 50s and 40s at night. It looks like we might be headed for going from the air conditioner to the furnace with no break in between. Yuk. Have a nice day all.
