Winter Wonderland - Christmas Lights Such a Beautiful Sight!

Posted by M Litel on Sat, Dec 3, 2016 @ 07:12 AM

Good day all, it is December 3rd, 2016.  I just had to tell  you all about Winter Wonderland in Tilles Park. I found this place to be amazing and wonderfully put together for a wonderful Christmas Light Show. I found it worth the $10 per car load.

(Everyone's taste is a bit different, but I loved it)  

I would definitely go through it again no doubt, but maybe a carriage ride through it this time.  Which they have on most nights, Saturday nights is dedicated to these.  NO vehicles allowed on Saturday night.   They have special nights when you can walk through the Winter Wonderland but you have to purchase tickets ahead of the time. But I hope to do that next year.   

Here are some of the photo's I was able to capture last night.  They are not the best, but hopefully you can see the quality of the lights and show that St. Louis County has put together for us all to enjoy.  Be sure to visit their website as to more information about the Winter Wonderland in Tilles Park! <Just click and it will take you to their website.

Simply Elegantly put together. You tune your Radio to their station and hear the music while the light show is to the beat of the music.  My photos simply do not do it justice.  Go out and enjoy if you possible can! It is a nice evening for the Family - Especially if you enjoy seeing the lights and hearing the sounds of Christmas.

Colds, Flu , Allergies - Tis the Season!

Posted by Myra L on Mon, Nov 28, 2016 @ 09:11 AM

Colds, Flu and even Allergies are prominent evening in Winter.  I personally dislike going to the doctor for a cold. Most time they just have to run its course, unless you start to get dehydrated.  Then go see your doctor. Some home remedies are available to help ease or lessen the symptons.  I know I try all I can  cause I hate being sick and if there is a chance it will shorten or lessen the symptons  I am all for trying it with my doctor's consent... Unless it taste badly. LOL

I have searched the internet for some of these home remedies.  Be sure you consult your doctor if you start any of these incase they interferre with any medications or treatments you are currently undergoing or taking.   

 

Below is taken from the At-Home  Remedieswebsite:

Being sick, even when you’re home in bed, isn’t fun. The combination of body aches, fever, chills, and nasal congestion can be enough to make anyone miserable.

There are plenty of home remedies that can help alleviate your symptoms and get you back to normal. If you still feel sick after a few weeks, make an appointment with your doctor. If you have trouble breathing, have a rapid heartbeat, feel faint, or experience other severe symptoms, get medical help sooner.

If you have trouble breathing, have a rapid heartbeat, feel faint, or experience other severe symptoms, get medical help sooner.

    Keep reading to see what cold and flu remedies you can conjure up at home.

    • Chicken Soup

       

      Your grandmother was right: Chicken soup may not be a cure-all, but it’s a great choice when you’re sick. Research published in the medical journal Chest suggests that enjoying a bowl of chicken soup with vegetables, prepared from scratch or warmed from a can, can slow the movement of neutrophils in your body. Neutrophils are a common type of white blood cell. They help protect your body from infection. When they’re moving slowly, they stay more concentrated in areas of your body that require the most healing.

      The study found that chicken soup was effective for reducing the symptoms of upper respiratory infections in particular. Low-sodium soup also carries great nutritional value and helps keep you hydrated. It’s a good choice, no matter how you’re feeling.

    • Ginger

       

      The health benefits of ginger root have been touted for centuries, but now we have scientific evidence of its curative properties. A few slices of raw ginger root in boiling water may help soothe a cough or a sore throat. Research suggests it can also ward off feelings of nausea that so often accompany influenza. For example, one study published in the British Journal of Anesthesia found that just 1 gram of ginger can “alleviate clinical nausea of diverse causes.”

    • Honey

       

      Honey has a variety of antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Drinking honey in tea with lemon can help ease sore throat pain. Research suggests that honey is an effective cough suppressant, too. A study published in Pediatrics revealed that 10 grams of honey given at bedtime reduced the severity of cough symptoms in children. In addition to coughing less, the children reportedly slept more soundly, which also helps reduce cold symptoms.

      You should never give honey to a child younger than 1 year old. Honey often contains botulinum spores. While they’re usually harmless to older children and adults, infants’ immune systems aren’t able to fight them off.

    • Garlic

       

      Garlic contains the compound allicin, which may have antimicrobial properties. Adding a garlic supplement to your diet might reduce the severity of cold symptoms. It might even help you avoid getting sick in the first place. According to a research review published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, one study of 146 participants found that people who took a garlic supplement reported fewer cases of the common cold than those who didn’t.

      More research needs to be done on the potential cold-fighting benefits of garlic. In the meantime, adding more garlic to your diet probably won’t hurt.

    • Echinacea

       

      Native Americans have used the herb and root of the echinacea plant to treat infections for more than 400 years. Its active ingredients include flavonoids, chemicals that have many therapeutic effects on the body. For example, flavonoids can help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation.

      Research on the herb’s effectiveness at fighting the common cold and flu has been mixed. But one review published in The Lancet: Infectious Diseases suggests that taking echinacea may lower your risk of developing the common cold by more than 50 percent. It may also reduce the length of a cold. If you’re a healthy adult, consider taking 1 to 2 grams of echinacea root or herb as a tea, three times daily, for no longer than one week.

    • Vitamin C

       

      Vitamin C plays an important role in your body and has many health benefits. Along with limes, oranges, grapefruits, leafy greens, and other fruits and vegetables, lemons are a good source of vitamin C. Adding fresh lemon juice to hot tea with honey may help reduce phlegm when you’re sick. Drinking hot or cold lemonade may also help.

      While these drinks may not clear up your cold entirely, they can help you get the vitamin C that your immune system needs. According to a research review published in the Annals of Nutrition and Metabolism, getting enough vitamin C can help relieve upper respiratory tract infections and other illnesses.

    • Probiotics

       

      Probiotics are “friendly” bacteria and yeast that are found in your body, some foods, and supplements. They may help keep your gut and immune system healthy. For example, a study published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews suggests that taking probiotics may help reduce your chance of getting sick with an upper respiratory infection.

      For a delicious and nutritious source of helpful bacteria, include probiotic yogurt in your diet. Besides its potential benefits for your immune system, yogurt is a healthy snack that provides plenty of protein and calcium. Look for products that list live bacteria on the label.

    • Salt Water

       

      According to research published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, gargling with salt water may help prevent upper respiratory infections. It may also decrease the severity of cold symptoms. For example, it may help ease sore throat pain and nasal congestion.

      Gargling with salt water reduces and loosens mucus, which contains bacteria and allergens. To try this remedy at home, dissolve a teaspoon of salt in a full glass of water. Swish it around your mouth and throat. Then spit it out.

      If you use salt water in a neti pot for nasal congestion, use water that’s been boiled first and then cooled. Also, be sure to rinse the neti pot with hot water and antibacterial soap after each use, and air-dry it. Replace the neti pot every few months. This helps prevent the spread of harmful bacteria.

    • Vapor Rub

       

      You might not like the smell, but some old-fashioned topical ointments, such as vapor rub, appear to reduce cold symptoms in children older than 2 years, according to a study published in Pediatrics. Just one or two applications before bed can help open air passages to combat congestion, reduce coughing, and improve sleep. Vapor rub is gaining traction among some doctors who encourage parents to avoid giving over-the-counter cold medicines to young children because of unwanted side effects.

    • Humidity

       

      Influenza thrives and spreads more easily in dry environments. Creating more humidity in your home may help reduce your exposure to this flu-causing virus. Increased humidity may also reduce nasal inflammation, making it easier to breathe when you’re sick. Temporarily adding a cool mist humidifier to your bedroom may help you feel more comfortable. This is especially true in winter, when dry indoor heat can exacerbate your symptoms. Adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil might also stimulate your breathing.

      Remember, the water used in humidifiers needs to be changed daily to stop mold and other fungi from growing. For the same effect without a humidifier, take a long shower or linger in a steamy bathroom.

    • Warm Baths

       

      Sometimes, you can reduce a child’s fever by giving them a warm sponge bath. Warm baths can also reduce cold and flu symptoms in adults. Adding Epsom salt and baking soda to the water can help reduce body aches. Adding a few drops of essential oil, such as tea tree, juniper, rosemary, thyme, orange, lavender, or eucalyptus, may also have a soothing effect.

    • Learn More

       

      There are many ways that people treat their cold and flu symptoms with home remedies. Some of those remedies may seem a bit weird, but there are people and communities that swear by their effectiveness. To learn more about the oddest options out there, check out the weirdest cold treatments from around the world

Cold & Wintery Weather Traveling Tips Be Prepared!

Posted by M Litel on Mon, Nov 21, 2016 @ 12:11 PM

Safe Travel Tips for Cold and Wintery Weather from Ready.gov

 

Car Safety

You can avoid many dangerous weather problems by planning ahead.  Plan long trips carefully, listening to the radio or television for the latest weather forecasts and road conditions. If bad weather is forecast, drive only if absolutely necessary.

Check or have a mechanic check the following items on your car:

  • Keep your gas tank full - in case evacuation is needed.
  • Do not drive through a flooded area - Six inches of water can cause a vehicle to lose control and possibly stall. A foot of water will float many cars.
  • Be aware of areas where floodwaters have receded - Roads may have weakened and could collapse under the weight of a car.
  • If a power line falls on your car you are at risk of electrical shock, stay inside until a trained person removes the wire.
  • Antifreeze levels - ensure they are sufficient to avoid freezing.
  • Battery and ignition system - should be in top condition and battery terminals should be clean.
  • Brakes - check for wear and fluid levels.
  • Exhaust system - check for leaks and crimped pipes and repair or replace as necessary. Carbon monoxide is deadly and usually gives no warning.
  • Fuel and air filters - replace and keep water out of the system by using additives and maintaining a full tank of gas. A full tank will keep the fuel line from freezing.
  • Heater and defroster - ensure they work properly.
  • Lights and flashing hazard lights - check for serviceability.
  • Oil - check for level and weight. Heavier oils congeal more at low temperatures and do not lubricate as well.
  • Thermostat - ensure it works properly.
  • Windshield wiper equipment - repair any problems and maintain proper washer fluid level.
  • Install good winter tires - Make sure the tires have adequate tread. All-weather radials are usually adequate for most winter conditions. However, some jurisdictions require that to drive on their roads, vehicles must be equipped with chains or snow tires with studs.

If there is an explosion or other factor that makes it difficult to control the vehicle, pull over, stop the car and set the parking brake.

If the emergency could impact the physical stability of the roadway, avoid overpasses, bridges, power lines, signs and other hazards.

Fruit Flies, Gnats -Tips on how to eliminate them from your living space. And Lease Option Purchase Mobile Homes Available!

Posted by M Litel on Tue, Nov 1, 2016 @ 12:11 PM

Fruit Flies and/or Gnats

I decided to write a short blog regarding this topic.  No matter where you may live in this world, you will have some sort of pest that will come join your world at one point in time.  Now, how you decide to get rid of the pest is a personal choice such as Organic or Chemical.  However, they are a nusiance when they get in your space. I searched the internet for solutions.  They are definitely worth trying.  I thought I would share them with you.   Below is a link to Wiki about getting rid of the gnats.

5 Ways to get Rid of Gnats

Five Methods:Dealing with Gnats in Sinks and DrainsGnat TrapsStopping gnats from re-infestingDealing with Gnats on PlantsSpraying GnatsCommunity Q&A

Pesky insects are common in just about every part of the world. Flies, mosquitoes and ants are found in multitude by nearly every property owner in America. Few insects, however, are quite as pesky as the gnat. Luckily, they are pretty easy to get rid of and there are a number of things you can do to prevent them from coming back again. Getting rid of gnats can be as simple as setting up a gnat trap, or pouring some ammonia down the drain.

 

These may or not be listed on the site above but I like the vinegar with soap in a mason jar.  It seems to work pretty good.   I think the one with a candle burning would not be bad atleast it would smell good. However,I don't like candles burning if I am out of the room or area.

Fall Time - Clocks Fall Back, Leaves Fall and Falling Temperatures - MMMM Time for Soup, too!

Posted by M Litel on Mon, Oct 31, 2016 @ 08:10 AM

Time Falls Back

This Sunday - November 6th, 2016

Don't forget to change all of your clocks.

And while I think of it don't forget to change your smoke alarm batteries, check your Heat tape, furnaces, etc.  Be safe during the Fall and Winter Season!

Image result for falling leavesIt is such a beautiful sight to watch the leaves change colors and fall to the ground.  Although the one who does yard work, doesn't like it as much. HEHEHE!  But still even if I was the one who did it, I would not mind at all.  The cooling temperatures prepares every creature and plant for the winter temps that are FAST approaching.    

Many fine folks go south for the winter to stay in a warmer area, but not me.  Golden Acres Mobile Home Community in House Springs, by the way is a wonderful place to live.  We get all the different season which is nice to have the exposure too. To me, the cooler temperatures mean great winter foods and a nice blanket to watch a great movie on my favorite channel. For me that ALSO, means more baking and lots more soups AND Watching the Snow fall (hopefully).   

I love good ol' fashion homemade soups from scratch.  That means also Grilled Cheese sandwich(made with Garlic butter bread toasted with Your favorite Cheese melted on it)

 

I love the Mayo Clinic Website as they offer many options for making homemade soup  including how to make broth.

Check it out!

 

I have copied and pasted some of their ideas from their website below for your convenience but be sure to visit their website too.

Soup for what ails you

By Jennifer K. Nelson, R.D., L.D. October 26, 2016
 

Fall ushers in cooler days and reminds me it's time to get my flu shot — and to stock my freezer with home-cooked broths that are ready to convert to cold-fighting soups.

In the spirit of the season, here are a few soup terms and fun facts.

Stock: Stock is the result of cooking vegetables, such as carrots, celery and onions (this trio is called "mirepoix" in French cooking), aromatics, and animal bones (which may or may not be roasted and may have meat still attached) in water. The mixture is usually simmered 4 to 6 hours to remove the collagen from the connective tissues and bones. It's then strained. When chilled, stock should have the texture of gelatin. Stock is often used as a base for sauces — or it may be made into a broth by adding water.

 

Broth: Broth is also made with vegetables, aromatics (herbs such as bay leaf, parsley and thyme) and meat (which may or may not include bones). However, broth is cooked for a shorter period of time, usually 45 minutes to 2 hours, before it's strained and seasoned.

Eating Right - Anti-Cancer Diets - Growing Herbs where ever you may live.....  House Springs, Jefferson County Mo

Posted by M Litel on Thu, Oct 27, 2016 @ 07:10 AM

Eating Right

Anti - Cancer Diets

Diets - Definitely not my thing. However eating right as I get older is becoming more important to me each day.  I was raised on fresh veggies from a garden.... I do miss that!

 Everyone says eat your veggies, that is all good unless they have lots of chemicals sprayed on them (My personal opinion).  Growing your own as much as possible is the best.  You can grow veggies in a flower pot or any container.  Herbs are the simplist to grow.  Golden Acres Mobile Home Community, House Springs Mo,  you can have a small veggie garden in your yard but we recommend pots in your flower garden It adds to your yard.  Or you can grow herbs, tomatoes, lettuce, etc in containers at your apartment, house.  You can grow some veggies all year long inside your home. (this is a link to rodales organic life).   It makes your home smell good when you grow herbs inside and you can teach your child(ren) as well.

 Organic is always better to but do your homework (research). I am not a vegetarian nor do I plan to be at this time in life cause I do like my meat as well. But try to get the grass fed -hormone free, antibotic free meats as well.  

Dieting to me it is about moderation. I am not the one to talk of dieting to loose weight but to eat right.  Eating healthy as much as possible can't hurt, Right?  As  you get older your taste buds change... so try an item  or two  you might find you like it now where you didn't before!  

Everydayhealth.com  has some great tips on foods that help reduce cancer.  Check out their website for great tips. I have copied and pasted the foods that they list.  I already eat several items off it.

The Anti-Cancer Diet: Foods to Fight Cancer

  •  

    1 / 11  

    An anti-cancer diet is an important strategy you can use to reduce your risk of cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends, for example, that you eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily and eat the right amount of food to stay at a healthy weight. In addition, researchers are finding that certain foods may be particularly useful in protecting you from cancer. Make room in your diet for the following foods and drinks to fight cancer.

  • Anti-Cancer Diet: Garlic

    2 / 11   Anti-Cancer Diet: Garlic

    Several large studies have found that those who eat more garlic are less likely to develop various kinds of cancer, especially in digestive organs such as the esophagus, stomach, and colon. Ingredients in the pungent bulbs may keep cancer-causing substances in your body from working, or they may keep cancer cells from multiplying. Experts don’t know how much you need to eat to pr according to the American Cancer

Happy Halloween! Safety Tips just for you and Everyone!

Posted by M Litel on Thu, Oct 20, 2016 @ 08:10 AM

Happy Halloween

Have a great one but Be Safe!  

Today there are several safe alternative's other than going door to door.   Many of us like the old fashion way of tricker trieating simple because we did it as kids.  However today there are safer alternatives such as: Private Parties, Community Parties, and one of my favorite is Trunk and Treat. Many schools offer this option.   

MAKE IT A FUN - SAFE AND HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Here is some tips fromParents.com

Click on the link above for some great tips on safety and other ideas too.  I have copied some of their tips for you from their page below:

Halloween Safety Tips Every Parent Should Know

Make trick-or-treating fun and safe with these simple steps.

Cat face paint

Thayer Allyson Gowdy

Face Facts:

 

  • Masks can obstruct your child's view, instead apply nontoxic face paints.
  • Make sure oversized hats, helmets, or headpieces won't interfere with their vision.

 

 

Costume Cautions:

 

  • Choose bright colors that make your child more visible in the dark.
  • Any store bought costumes and accessories (masks, beards, wigs) must be labeled "flame resistant."
  • Avoid oversized clothing. It makes it hard to walk and can come in contact with open flames from a jack-o-lantern.
  • Your child should wear shoes that fit to avoid tripping.
  • If you allow your child to carry a prop sword or knife, it should be made of soft plastic or rubber so it can bend if your child falls while carrying it.

Smoke Alarms in your home - House, Mobile Home, or an  Apartment that you own, rent or a Lease Purchase.

Posted by M Litel on Mon, Oct 17, 2016 @ 09:10 AM

Smoke Alarms

(Check with your local Fire Department - you may get a couple for FREE)

 

I received an email  which included the following information. I found it contain helpful information -  As we all are busy with every day life - sometimes it is great to get reminder tips of things that may help save your life and your family's life in case of a fire.  Tips to keep your Family Safe -

 

So without further adieu:

This is for the kids:  lets_have_fun_with_fire_safety

Now for the adults - Be sure to check your smoke alarms.  Please do NOT take out the batteries as I know sometimes they can be annoying when cooking.  But you may forget to put the battery back in!  That same annoying sound may save your life of you and your family.   

 

 

 Contact your local fire department to assist you with an escape plan for your home.  They will be happy to assist you.

 
 

This weekend, take some time to inspect your smoke alarms. Do you know how old they are? Follow these steps:

  1. Remove the smoke alarm from the wall ceiling.
  2. Look at the back of the alarm for the date of the manufacture.
