Would it be terrible of me to wonder ... can we bring them out of the war zone?  Can we save their lives, help them get an education, encourage their religious beliefs and cultural ways .. in our own homes, safe in the USA?  I know Americans have taken children away from many countries, many parents, and maybe it was wrong.  But maybe it also beat starving to death or being sold into sexual slavery. Why CAN'T we adopt these children, and NOT hide their glorious heritage of thousands of years, but bring them to the USA to keep them safe until the wars are over.  Why not???  I would gladly open my home to a child from a warzone.  ANY age, any disability. AM I wrong in wanting to see these children out of the war zones, and into safety??  Is it so wrong to want to make sure they have food, clothing, education and not awaken to bombs, screams, blood nd horrors ... why can' we do this, we of the rich nations of the world??

Not long ago, my niece's husband, Billy Wayne Canant , a firefighter at Ellington Fire Dept and Crash Rescue Specialist at Ellington Airport in Texas was terribly injured in a car wreck on one of Houston's busiest freeways. His recovery will be slow, hard and long as his left arm was crushed. If you can help in anyway, here's a link for donating to the cause. His family could use the help. He could use your prayers and kind thoughts, too!

This man is such a wonderful guy!   He and my niece married only a few years ago but he's been a great dad to her three children, very involved, very loving and caring man, and he is the love of her life. Bad things happen to very good people, we all know that. But if we all pitch in, we can make the bad not be so horrific! We can help! 

Please ... try .... say prayers, light candles, send cash ... whatever you can and want to do. BILLY WAYNE NEEDS YOU! Jami Reed Canant please keep us updated! I know you must be stretched super thin right now, probably tired and worried beyond belief, but know this: we do care, we do love you and we know we can help, even from 5500 miles away!!         XOXOXOXOXOX

really?  My niece's husband is about to lose his arm, and you think it's a hustle?  I WISH it was!!!  I got a photo of his car from the Houston newspaper and can't believe the guy even lived!  Loop 610 was shut down for about four hours ... that's a 8 lane highway!  He was right near the big bridge going over the Houston Ship Channel, by the Turning Basin. I just cannot imagine HOW he got up on the wrong side but then ... I'm from there, so to me, it's like ... old home roads. Heck, I remember when they BUILT the thing!  Dark, rainey night ... and yup, he had been drinking with his buddies and somehow, he got up on the wrong side of the damn bridge and once up?  You cannot do much but try to turn around! He got slammed by two big trucks before he could turn around. BEfore you or anyone else says he "deserves" to die or lose his arm cause he was drinking ... may I remind you all ... he's pulled people out of burning airplanes and buildings, he fought in Desert Storm. YES .... He KNEW better, but that's what a "few beers" with the boys, on a shitty rainy night, on a huge unfamiliar highway will do to a fallible human being.  No hustle, just a horrible accident in MY family. Frankly, I'm not even sure Jami and he NEED the funds ... a friend of their's put that donation site up and ask me to post it, so I did. Most of my friends have sent prayers and hope ... for me, that's plenty good enough!  I am not sending money -- don't have it!  I AM sending lots of love, cards, letters (real ones, penned by hand and stuck in the REAL mail - seems to mean more to me, maybe it will to him.)

Hang on ... will post the photos I gleaned from the newspapers in Houston.  Makes me cry.  He is SUCH a good guy and my fav nephew-in-law ... he is so freaking right wing and I am NOT .. so we always had a great debate going!  We still will - I just hope he doesn't lose his arm, his career over a stupid mistake. (Now if I can remember HOW to post photos!! Sheesh! Got a new puter, Windows 8.1 ... is ... driving .. me ... crazy!)

I wish I could figure out HOW to use STORIES in G+ .... it's nuts.  There does not seem to be a way to choose your OWN photos to make a story!  The G+ program picks what it wants and .... you cannot even delete the "story" .... either that, or I am missing something obvious!

+Rashad Brown -- did what you said.  Nothing happened. When I 'press on a story' it just plays the photos. I ddidn't even name the things - G+ just takes photos, none are of the same subject, and slaps them together ... it's weird.  AND ... I cannot find a way to delete THEIR selections etiher.  This is just bizzarro!

Trying to upload bout 45,000 photos on to G+ purchased storage. Of course, there are lots of duplicates, and probably duplicates of duplicates!  Been needing to do this for a few years  but why o' why isn't Picasa BETTER yet?  It still freezes up all the time!  Looking like I'm gonna have to find another way to organize & delete photos.   Any suggestions anyone??

Most people are all too familiar with cannabinoids (the active chemicals in medical marijuana) like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). But did you know that there are more than 85 active cannabinoids that have been identified in cannabis? Most medical research focuses on the popular cannabinoids, and the healthy benefits of THC and CBD are well established. But imagine – as more medical research comes out focusing on the many other cannabinoids, we may discover many more incredible properties inherent in the wonderful herb we call cannabis.

Look at Cannabinol or CBN!!!   Review the Endocannabinoid System, the bodily process that lets your body put medical marijuana to work. Your brain has two main cannabinoid receptor types – CB1 and CB2. When smoking, eating or otherwise consuming cannabis, those chemicals bond to specific receptors in your body, which is part of why medical marijuana is so safe and natural. While relatively weak, CBN is still very much psychoactive, being a metabolite of THC. While CBN acts mildly on CB1, it has more of an affinity (similar characteristics of compounds that suggest a relationship) for CB2. Because of its relationship with CB2, it works well as an immunosuppressant.  Immunosuppression is, as you might guess, when the immune system’s responses (such as inflammation) are shut down. This is an important function when the immune system is overreacting or you need to turn it off. In transplant surgeries, such as bone marrow or liver transplants, you want an immunosuppressant so the body does not reject the transplant. In autoimmune diseases, such as Crohn’s disease or rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system is acting abnormally.

So what this suggests is that CBN could be a useful treatment for things like autoimmune aplastic anemia, celiac disease, or certain surgeries. Other drugs that cause immunosuppression include opioids and cytostatic drugs used in chemotherapy. Perhaps CBN could be a powerful, safer alternative to these kinds of more dangerous drugs.
Furthermore, some early studies of CBN have linked it to stimulated bone growth, making it potentially helpful treating osteoporosis.

A 2008 study found that when applied topically CBN has also been found to be a potent anti-bacterial agent against MRSA, an infection that is difficult to treat.

CBN is also one of the most sedative cannabinoids, so strains higher in CBN work great for insomnia. Steep Hill Halent reported, “The consumption of 2.5mg to 5mg of CBN has the same level of sedation as a mild pharmaceutical sedative, with a relaxed body sensation similar to 5mg to 10mg of diazepam.”

Cannabinol is a byproduct of the degradation of cannabis. In other words, CBN tends to be in higher concentrations in medical marijuana that is old and hasn’t been stored properly. More CBN generally means less THC, so that’s an added benefit for patients who don’t prefer THC. But because of this, it’s unlikely you’ll find strains with high CBN levels at dispensaries, where the cannabis is more fresh. If you want more CBN, you can leave your buds exposed to air for a while or you can wait until more research arrives and you can get concentrated CBN on its own. Whether or not CBN is a panacea, the medical potential is certainly exciting!  I've actually found that by allowing my pot to GET old, and then taking the very dry, very very dry, buds, sweet leaf, etc ... and running them through fine grind on my coffee grinder, I have a lovely, fine green flour.  With this, I add coconut oil, use a magicalbuttermachine (dot com) [no not a commercial for them, but i do like the machine, it's SUPER easy to use and very inexpensive] ... and make cannabutter. I no longer have insomnia OR restless leg!  Plus, I am far less anxious than I've been in decades.  Finally got off the benzo's, in fact! 

BUT most of what I see online and on youtube is a bunch of trash.  Would YOU let your mother ONLY use the stuff they tell you is a "cure" here?  Not me!  I LOVE my mom.  Chemo, radiation, oral meds, even amputation ... AND cannabis?  YES!  Cannabis helped her sleep, helped her eat and keep the food down, and in general, she simply just FELT better, less anxious, less afraid of dying.  She became very calm, very into her own body and, eventually, after fighting for nine years, cancer got her.  Maybe in  10 years, or 20 or even 100 ... we humans WILL find a true cure.  But until then, do NOT depend upon it to "cure" you of ANYTHING (except insomnia, and that's a certain deal!)
 
In the meantime, caution is advised. Don't become the victim of a cancer scam. The scamsters are sure to follow this report as night follows day.

If ANYONE in any of my circles knows how to really spread something around on the internet, to fund raise for a firefighter hurt in a terribly car wreck ... please let me know!  Billy Wayne married my niece and we just adore him!  He's lying in a hospital bed at St Luke's in Houston- and might be about to lose his left arm. We don't know yet.  Anyway, some friends of their's in Houston have a site up to raise funds, but ... how can I help with the "broadcast" of the info?  I KNOW people would want to help if they knew him, his wife and their three kids!  I wish I knew more but .. I know enough to ASK FOR HELP!!!    HOW DO I DO THIS???

Jami and Billy Wayne met as next door neighbors!  Soon, they were dating, and then ... he popped the question.  She'd met the love of her life, and he not only loved her but her three children as well.  They've worked hard to buy a home, get their kids through the teen years and are still very much 'young lovers' at heart.  When Billy Wayne was hurt so badly in the wreck on October 2, I just know my sweet niece, Jami, had her heart nearly broken in half. Billy Wayne needs to have many more surgeries, he's not getting out to go bck to firefighting any time soon and the family COULD use your help.  Please, help'em out!  Just to let you in on who they are a bit more .. here are some of my fav shots of them ..... http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/billy-canant-get-well-soon-/244274#.VDiW9-98h8J.facebook

I've complained for more than five years about ONE toenail, and local doctors just shrug and blow it off. Now, the nail is half off, looks SO gross (actually, the appearance has been the key to me being so disgusted cause it does not hurt) and now, the nail is so rough, it's tearing thick cotton socks!  I am going to try the Neem oil after a daily soak of vinegar!  Sure can't beat the NOTHINGNESS done by the overpaid physicians who do nothing!  I'll give it three mnmths with this home remedy, and if it doesn't improve at all ... will move on to the next one: straight bleach soak, followed by tea tree oil. One kills, the other prevents, softens. I HOPE. ANY suggestions from the peanut gallery will be appreciated!  I'm just sick of paying doctors for nothing but shrugged shoulders. Hell, I can do that for free! :-D

NEW DATA:  Nov 23rd.  The peeling skin stopped weeks ago, the burn quit bubbling and there are no scars.  BUT .. the toenail?  It's quite doing its awful thing!  Fungus? Doc says no.  Bacterial infection? Doc says no.  Lack of oxygen to the extremeties?  Most likely.  The chem burn helped get rid of the old skin and actually softened the cllous-like skin around the toe, and it was removed.  Now, my toe LOOKS better and is growing bck in without any of the previouslumps ... keeping my fingers crossed. OH!  And every snige, I rub Vick'sVaporub on the toe, put on a sock and sleep.  It's working!  SOMETHING is anyway ... the toenail growing in now?  Its flat and smooth!

My son, Morgan, is the best young man any parent would want to claim as their child! He's smart, sweet, and handsome. I'm proud of his college attendance as well as how he works for others. He's still young, but it would not suprise me if he did something truly GREAT with his talents and skills. Of course, since I am his mom, he is already truly great to me! .
