Update to my haircare protocol and a picture of my new hair product lineup
Recently, I wrote about how Malibu C had changed their formula for their Blondes Shampoo and how when I had to
replenish my supply, I had discovered this change, around the end of July and wrote about it in a post on Aug 1st.    Soon after,  I ran out out ...

"Today Frederick Douglass is best remembered as a giant of the abolitionist cause. That is as it should be. The destruction of slavery was his life's work, and he deserves to be honored and remembered for it. But as the above history also makes clear, Douglass deserves to be recognized on another front: namely, for being one of the 19th century's most eloquent critics of socialism."
Understanding the political philosophy of the abolitionist leader.

"Black success is a threat to political empires and to a whole social vision behind those empires. That social vision has politicians like Bill de Blasio and Hillary Clinton cast in the role of rescuers and protectors of blacks from enemies threatening on all sides. If politicians can promote paranoia, that means bigger voter turnout, which is what really matters to them."

About the Hair Color and Not Coloring--It is about the freedom, thriftyness and good health practices
Love being free from having to color my hair every three weeks, and even then, it would look like I had bald patches where the new growth was more concentrated because of the contrast.  Also, I wanted to wear it long, and I couldn't manage to keep it health...

If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, or if you live with a daily cocktail of Rx drugs to "manage" your blood pressure, sugar, or cholesterol levels and would like to be free of that costly ball and chain, that doesn't make you well, it just "manages" your levels, to a point, check this out. It has been working wonders for Dan and I, and here it's another great film for those who are ready and open to a new paradigm. 
This globally acclaimed film explores the impact of food choices on human health, on the environment and on the lives of other living species.

"It reminds me of a famous Philip Morris cigarette ad that tried to downplay the risks by saying, “Hey, you think second-hand smoke is bad, increasing the risk of lung cancer 19%; well, hey, drinking one or two glasses of milk may be three times as bad—62% increased risk of lung cancer. Or doubling the risk frequently cooking with oil; or tripling your risk of heart disease eating non-vegetarian; or multiplying your risk six-fold eating lots of meat and dairy.” So, they conclude, “Let’s keep some perspective here.” The risk of cancer from secondhand smoke may be well below that of other everyday activities.  So, breathe deep. 
That’s like saying: yeah, don’t worry about getting stabbed, because getting shot is so much worse. It’s like saying if you don’t wear seat belts, you might as well have unprotected sex. If you go bungee jumping, might as well disconnect your smoke alarms at home. Two risks don’t make a right.
Of course, you’ll note Philip Morris stopped throwing dairy under the bus once they purchased Kraft Foods."-- Excerpt from the transcript that goes with this short 8 minute video.
Only about one in 10,000 people make it to be 100 years old. What’s their secret?

On the highest levels of BPA from food sources, "...worst of the worst appeared to be canned tuna."
90% of our exposure to the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A comes from certain components of our diet.

"The study determined that there is a strong link between alcohol consumption and cancer in specific areas of the body, such as the liver, colon, esophagus and female breast."...

"Breast tissue is another area that seems to be particularly susceptible to alcohol."
If you've recently had a drink, we have some terrible news for you.

Egads! Fortunately, I've always been a teetotaler.
