Are you a Tea Drinker? Then you probably don’t even know, like I didn’t that throwing away the tea bag right after drinking it is a mistake? Seems tea bags can be used for much more than just brewing tea. Imagine that. Who knew?
According to the Organic Solutions Portal. Hee are some of the other great uses of used Tea Bags.
Like for Fresh Smelling Hands, If you’re cooking spicy foods your hands will probably smell nasty afterwards. Onions, fish or garlic’s odor can linger on until the next day but not if you rub your hands with a tea bag. Any kind of tea bag will do the trick but for best results use peppermint tea.
As a Hair Rinse Tea Bags Strengthen and soften your hair with tea, make a weak tea and rinse your hair with it. You’ll be amazed by the results.
What about No more grease on your dishes? If your dishes are all greasy and burnt and you don’t know how to clean them up, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Soak a few used tea bags in your dishes overnight and just rinse them in the morning.
Soak a few used tea bags in your bath tub and enjoy the ultimate herbal experience. Which tea to use? You can use any tea you like, but you’ll get the best results from lavender, chamomile, rosemary, green tea or peppermint.
What about as Insect repellent? Not just insects but mice as well hate the mint odor, so why don’t you use old mint tea bags instead of your go-to repellent. Just scatter them around the house and your insect problem is solved.
So How do you store the old tea bags? Leave them at room temperature for 24 hours and then put them in an airtight container and store them in your fridge. Use them whenever you need to. If they start to smell it means that it’s time to get rid of them.
Have a Great New Year of being Happy and Healthy.
Things are cracking At The Movies about this time of year.
How ever, when you spit out names like Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Joe Pantoliano, Rene Russo and Jane Seymour just to name a few. You got a Fun Time At The Movies.
From Broad Green Pictures and from Ron Shelton, writer/director of Tin Cup and Bull Durham, comes the new comedy, called Just Getting Started. Morgan Freeman stars as DUKE DIVER, the freewheeling manager of the luxury Palm Springs resort, the Villa Capri. DIVER may have a mysterious past, but he’s a pro at making sure that life for the high-spirited residents is one big, non-stop party. But the status quo is challenged when ex-military charmer LEO played by San Antonio’s own Tommy Lee Jones checks in, triggering a competition between Duke and Leo for the spot of Top Dawg, as well as for the affections of the newly-arrived SUZIE played by the lovely Rene Russo. When Duke’s past suddenly catches up with him, the rivals put aside their differences and the two men reluctantly team up to stop whoever is trying to kill Duke, and also save the Villa Capri.
The movies is a super fun time and it’s Rated PG.
Just when you thought it was safe to go prancing through the jungle, wait, The Rock is back in Jumanji, Welcome to the Jungle.
From Columbia Pictures; When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of--Jumanji--they are immediately drawn into the game’s jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson; football jock Fridge loses (in his words) “the top two feet of his body” and becomes an Einstein played by Kevin Hart; popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor played by none other than Jack Black; and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior who is them plaed by Karen Gillan. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji--you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves--or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.
So, what are you waiting for? Jump into a theater near you for a Fun Time At The Movies.
What kind of an idiotic, hyper critical, unbalanced society have we become that we think we’re so all mighty as to ruin a man’s life and career over a drunken laps in judgment he may or may not have had 31 year ago. Just whom do we think we are that we have the self righteous authority to judge anyone in this way? The worst part is that those sitting in judgment have pasts that are no better and in many ways even worse than the man being judged.
Al you people sitting at home at your computers posting such vile and nasty thing should be ashamed as well. If we put the Microscope to your past, whether it be recent or long ago, will we be able to find any questionable lapses in your judgments as well? Think about it god ad hard. All you people who sit in church every Sunday with a big smile and pretend to be believers while during the week your out committing acts of theft under the guise of good business, lust, adultery, false witness, coveting and the rest. No mater to what degree for even the slightest is considered grave. Have any of you been Taking advantage of the poor, Defrauding a working man of his wages, uttered any hatred, had reproach, defiance? Well? A truthful answer, please.
If the media is going to jump on the band wagon against anyone then they have an equal responsibility to go after everyone in the matter, the suspect, the judges and the jury. How does that saying go, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone”.
C’mon people, wake up and smell the coffee. Stop being such Hypocrites. If you who sin all these sins daily can go to church on Sunday with those big grins remember you can not fool HE who will be your final judge. So Stop the Madness right now and start to live better lives each and every one.
Pick the right thinks to get angry at and take action against. Think about this, If you or anyone around you has no healthcare or the means to it, if we know this and for what ever reason choose not to fix that, aren’t we then guilty of one of the biggest sins ever? We all know the answer to that in our hearts, and if still, we choose not do do anything to change it because it may alter how much free money it may leave us, then what. Smelling like Mortal Sin to me. Not judging just saying.
Next time we hear the thought that as U.S. Citizens we should have a right to healthcare provided free or almost free of charge by our government, think about the fact that if we don’t become part of the process to make it happen and people keep dying because of it, we are personally violating one of the biggest Golden Rules by default. “Thou Shall Not Kill.”
So as the Holiest of Seasons dawns on us let’s get our thoughts, priorities and understanding of what is right straight. Lets stop thinking that because we may not be directly responsible for something, we get a free pass. Never forget HE is The Reason for the Season. HE gave us the Gift that allows us to make things right. GOB Bless, GOD Speed.
Banana Mug Bread
This dessert mug cake is awesome with whipped cream or ice cream.
What you’ll need to create this masterpiece
1 tablespoon butter, melted OR 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk (can use regular, soy or nut)
1 very ripe banana, mashed
3 tablespoons of all purpose flour (make sure to scoop the flour out of the bag with a measuring spoon so you get enough!)
3 tablespoons brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
You will need a 12 oz+ mug for this! I’m using a 14 oz mug. Any smaller than 12 oz and you risk running over the edges. Plus, it’s really hard to mix everything in a teeny mug.
Lets use butter. Throw the butter in the mug and pop it into the microwave for 15 seconds to let it melt.
Allow the mug to cool down until you can easily hold it. This will keep you from making scrambling eggs instead.
Add the milk first, then the eggs and mix everything together well with a fork.
Add the mashed banana into the mug and stir everything briskly, to mix well.
Add the flour, brown sugar and baking powder.
Mix this well with the fork again, break up any clumps. Just don’t mix it for too long or you’ll end up with a chewy cake. Microwave for 2 Minutes.
Recommend cooking :Cook the mug cake in the microwave for 1 minute at full power. Stand near the microwave to babysit it - if it starts to rise above the rim of the mug, open the door and let it fall. Once it’s fallen, close the door and begin cooking again.
After the first minute, check the top. If it’s still wet, put it in for an additional 30 seconds.
Happy Healthy Holiday Eating.
Great time to duck into a theater with all the fun, great movies coming out.
Just out and starting of to an unusually slow start on it’s Opening Friday at only $38 Million is the much awaited Justice League. Don’t believe all the garbage you hear from the Movie Critics that are bashing this flick, it’s good.
If your a Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash fan... you’re going to like this movie. As you already know, in the beginning, Superman is dead, Batman thinks he is responsible and a great threat is here to crush humanity.
Bruce Wayne is trying to find a group of gifted and talented super friends to help him fight this world threat and sit back for the spectacular ride. The Critic Bashing is HOG WASH. Take yourself into the theater and have a Good Time as you dive into Justice League. It’s Rated PG and almost 2 Hours Long but never once felt the story was lagging. From Warner Bros. Pictures.
Next, an Inspirational Move for us all. A film that makes us realize that at some point in our lives we realize our looks have little if nothing to do with who we are inside.
From Lionsgate and based on a book from the New York Times Best Sellers List comes the film, WONDER.

That all changes when Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. Watch as his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance withing him and themselves.
Staring Julia Roberts, Owen Williams and Jacob Tremblay as Auggie. WONDER is Rated PG and Runs 113 Minutes.

“What the world needs now is love, It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of what the world needs now is love, No, not just for some but for everyone.”
What could possibly compel any man to pick up a weapon and kill anyone? Have you figured out? It’s quite simple. It’s called evil. We’re talking pure, unadulterated evil. The kind that can only emanate from one source. Can you wrap your mind around that?
Oh, so your not a believer? You can’t buy the “Man Upstairs” concept or the fact that evil could be a thing manipulated by a guy who’s name starts with sat... or luci.. who was once a member of the good side until he decided to rebel in a really big way?
With the greater number of hurricanes than ever this year followed by one earthquake after another not only in Mexico but around the world and then there are 2 crazy guys in control of 2 countries who are close to killing us all with atomic weapons, come on, you have to stop and at least consider the fact that this could be the beginning of the end?
“LORD, we don’t need another mountain there are mountains and hillsides enough to climb, there are oceans and rivers enough to cross, enough to last till the end of time.”
If in fact the creators greatest gift to us was freedom of choice or even if you don’t believe in that but, understand that we all have the ability to make choices then the question is still is “What could possibly compel any man to pick up a weapon and kill anyone”?
“Lord, we don’t need another meadow, there are cornfields and wheat fields enough to grow, there are sunbeams and moonbeams enough to shine Oh listen, if you want to know.”
Just another point of view inspired by Hal David. GOD Speed.

Just When is enough, enough? Have you ever run across a person or and event that stress to drain you and stress you out? So how do we know when it’s time to stop stressing out and move on to another mission?
That is a really good question. Because from time to time, no mater how much we may want to help someone, they may not be receptive to our help and in some cases, they may not be mentally able to change the way they do things. It’s at this point the we have to be able to take a step back, realize that pushing forward is futile and move on.
Don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to abandon that person or situation entirely. You just have to realize that it’s time to back off and regain your composure and not allow the situation to drain you and start stressing you out. If you don’t it may drive you nuts and, in some cases it can make you physically ill. We wouldn’t want that now, would we?
Then there are those that prey on people like us. Goodhearted people become victims of others that specifically seek them out in order to take advantage of their kindness and good humor. Those people are bad people. They can even, at times be, dangerous.
When you meet someone who needs assistance it’s always good to be aware of them and your surroundings and what they may attempt to ask of you to do. If they ask for something that is sketchy or unreasonable, an alarm should go off in your head and you should take heed.
Helping others is always the way we should live. It’s what our creator wants us to do. Help those who are less fortunate. To what extent you might ask? Well, that’s up to you to decide but I can tell you, the more you help the better you’ll feel. Just another Point of View.

From 20th Centurty Fox, “Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman - an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge.
