Do You Like Onions ? Have you ever given any thought about if onions are good for us or not?
So here is something I found out just recently, the Nutritional Composition of Raw Onions offer up 10% or more of the daily value for vitamin C, vitamin B-6 and manganese.
Onions also contain small amounts of calcium, iron, foliate, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium and the antioxidants quercetin, a powerful compound that has been suggested to play a role in preventing cancer, especially stomach and colorectal cancers.
Dump whole onions with skin in slow cooker to make Slow Cooker Onion Jam. A delicious side dish to pair with most any other main dish.
Take four or five onions, skin and all and put them in the bottom of a slow cooker and cook them on High for 5 Hours. Then Pull the onions out and peel the skins off. Take kitchen knife and cut the onions into smaller pieces and throw them in a bowl.
Add equal parts to taste of, Salt, Pepper, Cumin, Brown Sugar, Apple Cider Vinegar and stir together.
Now your ready to serve. Serve the Jam up on crackers, or as a side to some spicy fried or Grilled Chicken or even a juicy Steak or Pork Chop. No mater what the main dish the Onion Jam is sure to be a hit.
Did I mention that A mixture of onion juice and honey (which helps make it less pungent) is said to be effective as a cure for fever, common cold, allergies, etc.

That led to him moving back in with his real father which proved to be a blessing when is old man bought him his first guitar.
As things would go, soon after that his father, for what ever the reason, kicked him out and so this young man moved into his neighbors basement.
Once, his cousin, also a musician, asked him to play on an album. It was that moment that convinced him to pursue his own musical ambitions. He made a Demo Tape but couldn’t seem to get anyone to listen to it. So he went back to the start and recorded a new one which finally caught someone’s ear and got some much needed and deserved attention.
Just turned seventeen and still living in his neighbors basement he landed a deal with Warner Brothers Records. This kid has some huevos, even with no professional experience he demanded to be allowed to produce his own first album.
The executives at the Record Company were hesitant to give full control to such a young person but they finally gave in. So this young man set out to prove them all wrong. He decided to play every single instrument on his first album. Before he was done he played all 27 instruments to get it done.
His Debut Album went Platinum and the rest is history.

Do you ever wonder, cause sometimes do, if in attempting to be So Politically Correct we aren’t Violating One Our Most Sacred Rights? I’m talking about The FIRST Amendment, The Right To Freedom of Speech. Could we be just annihilating it in theory at least if not in strict legality.
If someone writes that they think I look like a Monkey or a character from “Planet of The Apes” which, by the way I probably do or have looked like on several occasions, how can anyone have the right to ASSUME that they mean it as a Racial Slur?
Not to mention, in doing so, destroy a persons livelihood and their ability to earn a living without truly knowing if that’s what they meant at the time they wrote that about me.
After pondering all that for a while now I can’t say that I’m not 100% sure that what America has done to Rosanne Barr may be morally and / or legally right. After all, this is America land of the free home of the brave where our soldiers fight wars in places far, far away to protect our right to be free even in our speech.
The way I see it, unless you can prove without a benefit of the doubt that what you think someone said at any given time they wrote something was true, there is no case.
It then all become assumption, conjecture. Nothing more than someone giving credence to a rumor, a belief someone has, and certainly Not A Truth.
I’ve looked at a picture of the person Rosanne supposedly besmirched on that infamous Tweet and I must say I have to agree. If you put a Picture of her next to a picture of Dr Zira (one of my favorite characters from “Planet Of The Apes”, there is a slight resemblance. But then again if you put a picture of ME next to a picture of Clyde the orangutan from the Clint Eastwood Movie “Every which Way But Loose” you’ll have to admit there is a slight resemblance as well. How can we prove that those are Racist comparisons though? According to researchers, “The great ape families are the species most closely related to our own”. So, Come On now, can we all just try to Relax and live together without being So Sensitive?
As Christians, we’re even worst. We sanctimoniously pick and choose which parts of the Bible we want to follow on any given day and which ones we just run over with a Mac truck. We violate Bible verse every day without giving it a second thought but when we catch someone in the public eye doing it, OMG you would think it was the end of the world. Tie them to the stacks and stone them in public.
The truly sad thing is that in thousands and thousands of years we still have not learn to get along as one people. That we still don’t realize that the more we choose to segregate ourselves by the color of our eyes, our skin, race, heritage, geographic origin, etc, etc, etc WE WILL NEVER achieve that goal. We must set all our bad history aside and accept to see and treat each other as Equals. Only then will we that happen.
Don’t get me wrong and don’t put words in my mouth. I’m not saying we can’t be proud of who our ancestors and our heritage. Let’s how ever stop using what our ancestors went through and learn from it instead of using it to continue to separate us as One People.
We don’t have to like or agree with something someone else says but then again we don’t have to start a huge campaign to ruin their world either. Leave that to Karma.
Just another Point of View.
Wow, Just barley into summer and it has been a wild ride indeed.
After Sarah Gilbert does a comedy skit with John Goodman who was a guest on the CBS Show “The Talk”, a skit about their old show Roseanne. Gilbert was so impressed about how comfortable the skit felt that she asked Goodman if he would be willing to do the show again.
Without hesitation Goodman was in and that was the start of the re-boot of the new Roseanne show featuring the one and only Roseanne Barr. Gilbert quickly contacted other former show members who also were quick to come on board and the new show was re-born.
It debuted on ABC with a huge ratings and remained as the number one show on TV till it went into hiatus for the season. By this time ABC had already renewed the show for a second season with Roseanne rumored to be making about Half A Million per episode.
The world was a Rosy place until one night when, as she claims, Roseanne, in an Ambient stupor, on her computer first off a Tweet that would bring an abrupt halt to all the goodness that anyone could find in the re-boot of the Roseanne show.
With the swift click of the Enter button Roseanne managed to insult, and in the worst possible way, a whole race of people as her tweet in most of America’s eyes, basically compared them to characters from the Planet of The Apes. YIKES.
Immediately the attacks on the Tweet ad Roseanne started. In a few hours Roseanne, most likely realizing by now that she had crossed the line, deleted the Tweet and started apologizing and even Tweeted that she was leaving Twitter. Sadly hat was far from the truth.
Over the course of the rest of the night and the following day, Rosy had continued Tweeting almost about 300 times. She went from attempting to defend herself to continuing to lash out at people and continuing to compare this one poor lade to a character from Planet Of The Apes.
But this time public sentiment was so high against Roseanne that ABC had no choice but to take action and they Canceled their Number One Show. Wow. A sign of the times that you just can’t say anything and get away with it. Well, unless your Donald Trump but, that a whole different story.
It’s like grandma used t say, “You just can’t let your Alligator Mouth over run your Hummingbird Brain”. Just Another Point Of View.
At the Movies this month we’re starting to see the beginning of all those Summer Blockbusters or at least what should be.
All things considered things are creeping along at the Box Office for some movies that were supposed to be huge. For instance, SOLO: A Star Wars Story was supposed to have a huge opening last month and had a disappointing Box Office World Wide.
However, two weeks ago It was holding on t the number two Box Office Earning bringing in a $15.8 Million behind Ocean’s 8 at $41.6 Million for that weekend.
In case you ave not see SOLO I’ll tell you know the problem is not the movie. After all is was Directed by none other than Ron (Opie Taylor) Howard. In my humble opinion the problem with SOLO is the fact that it had NO bona fied Stars in it. Coupled with the fact that it had little TV Advertising all equates to little Buzz and a poor Box Office.
From Walt Disney Pictures, “Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. The plot explores the early adventures of Han Solo and Chewbacca, as the pair are involved in a heist within the criminal underworld and meet a young Lando Calrissian. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Solo and Chewbacca encounter the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes. Rated: PG-13 (for sequences of sci-fi action/violence). Check It Out. Check It Out.
Just out about a week ago, from Universal Pictures, “Three years since the theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment, Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.”
Rated: PG-13 (for intense sequences of science-fiction violence and peril). Gotta catch this one for sure.
Get out of this hot summer sun and into a new great adventure today A The Movies.
Recently I’ve been going through somewhat of a minor, yet not so, health crisis.
It took me to the ER and into the hospital for a week and I can’t say I was very happy but then who is having to e in the hospital.
Just before the first of the year I developed a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). Not uncommon for me at this particular time of year. I usually go to the Doctor, get and antibiotic and two weeks later I’m good, or not. Sometimes it takes antibiotics for four weeks to get rid of my UTI which by now has infected not only my bladder but my Prostate too.
This was one of those rare times that after a four week regimen of the antibiotics I was still not good. A week after the antibiotics the Nasty UTI was back and I was back at the Doctor.
The culprit, Escherichia coli. This type of UTI is usually caused by Escherichia coli (E. coli), a type of bacteria commonly found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Urinary tract infections aren’t usually serious, but they can be dangerous if the bacteria make their way into the kidneys. Left untreated, a kidney infection (which is considered a UTI) can cause permanent kidney damage and even deadly blood poisoning.
E. Coli, YIKES I thought until I did a little research and found; “E. coli, is responsible for more than 85 percent of all UTIs, according to a 2012 report in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases.” I was slightly relieved to ear that.
Even though I’m already on another antibiotic, I thought, I ave to try to see what I can do to kill the pesky E. Coli in my GI Tract or keep it at levels that will not keep infecting me with on going UTI’s. So, I did a little more reasearch.
I found that there was a substance that is highly known to control or eliminate the threat of E. Coli in the gut. So, I have started taking “D-mannose”. “Dosage. The typical dose of D-mannose for UTI treatment is 500 mg, in capsule or powder form, taken in a glass of water or juice every two to three hours for five days.”
Remember, I’m Not a Doctor just relating my story to you. If you are thinking about starting any new health regimen Consult Your Doctor first. GOD Speed.
Happy Healthy Living.
Summer just around the corner even though here in Texas we're already there but what a great time to duck into a nice cool theater and enjoy a great movie. No better time then now with such a variety of flicks to choose from.
If you've been waiting for a movie for grown folks that you may better relate to then I would suggest The Book Club out in theaters now. What a cast of great mature women whom you might or might not remember. We're talking Jane Fonda, Mary Steenburgen(yes, Ted Danson's real life wife), American film actress, director, and producer Diane Keaton, and who could ever forget Candice Bergen the once infamous TV Character better known as Murphy Brown.
From Paramount Pictures; Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, Vivian (Jane Fonda) enjoys her men with no strings attached, Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still working through her decades-old divorce, and Carol's (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. The lives of these four lifelong friends are turned upside down after reading the infamous "50 Shades of Grey," catapulting them into a series of outrageous life choices.
Funny movie without any blood and guts and killing, who knew? Check it out.
