Off-Topic / Advice for a on-going problem with a child & his grandma...
« on: March 04, 2016, 10:19:01 am »Message ID: 1051037
Recently I gave a mom some advice on this problem and then decided perhaps my advice was "too abrasive".  So I told her I would be posting the problem in a on-line forum to see what thoughts others would have in hopes of finding some advice that helps.

The situation is this:  Mom has baby (only child) and works, so the baby is cared for by grandma (hubby's mom).  Grandma also cares for her other grandchildren as well.  The baby is now almost 5 years old.  Mom sends him to grandma's with healthy meals & snacks because she realizes the importance of good nutrition for a growing child.

But....Grandma has told her NOT to send him to her house with food, that they have their own food.  If he comes with food, she'll either send it back home with him or let it sit out all day so it spoils.  She doesn't offer him healthy food, she is ALWAYS taking him out for FAST FOOD including McDonalds several times a week.  Fast food & sugar-filled treats is all she offers him.  (It's also what she raised her son on--the "hubby", and hubby has had medical issues with his intestines for the past several years due to his poor nutritional habits.)  Grandma has been talked to about this, it does NO good.

When the wife says anything to hubby about the son's nutrition, he just doesn't see a problem because he eats fast food all the time too (several times a week).  He's also buying fast food and has takes the son out for fast food without her knowledge.  (She found out about it later, after questioning the son as to why he wasn't hungry at dinnertime.)

So, this summer mom will be working FIVE days a week...which means grandma will have FIVE whole days a week to take him out for fast food & feed him sugar-filled "junk".  Five days a week of poor nutrition for this little boy.  Mom is sad and frustrated.  They NEED grandma to babysit him, grandma is close by and they know they can trust her with him.

Any ideas on how you would handle this if this was YOUR situation?? 
All responses will be forwarded to the mom.

All responses are appreciated and thank you so much in advance, for your advice & thoughts!!! 

Off-Topic / Any problems with Purina food(s)??
« on: January 08, 2015, 03:32:40 pm »Message ID: 949896
Has anyone had any problems with the Purina foods??  :cat:   :dog: (There's a list of them at the end of this post).

There is a Consumer Complaint & Review Site and it currently has 815 complaints with many of the complaints coming in during the past few months.  I have also found other complaints all over the internet on Purina foods.  Many sick & dead kittens, cats, puppies & dogs.

I know someone that just lost their kitten from renal failure that had ate the Purina One Kitten (dry) and canned Fancy Feast.  It was so sad.  Pets NEED to eat and they don't have a choice what goes in their bowls.  They either have to eat it or go hungry.  If they eat it, then they get sick and could possibly die.  It should be illegal what Pet food mfgrs. are passing off as "pet food"!!

Purina Foods:
Beneful, Fancy Feast, Pro Plan, Purina One, Friskies, Veterinary Diet, Cat Chow, Beyond, Whiska Lickins, Kit n Kaboodle, Delicat, Dog Chow, Alpo, Mighty Chow, Moist n Meaty, Chef Michael's, Purina Friskies Party Mix, Purina Busy, T-Bonz, Beggin', Mighty Dog, Waggin' Train.

Off-Topic / Typically speaking, when does the "grieving process" begin?
« on: January 08, 2015, 02:04:36 pm »Message ID: 949878
 That was probably a "strange" question.  Everyone I know, including myself have been heartbroken at the onset of a loss...whether it's been loss of family, friends, or pets.  The time that grieving lasted varied.  The deepest wounds never truly heal.

 A few of us recently lost someone very special.  Tears have flown like water, so many are feeling a huge loss.  Except for one.  This person was the one person closest to her,  but no emotion from her except "coldness".  She has apologized a few times for appearing to be so "cold",  but says she still hasn't even grieved for one of her parents that died two years ago.  (I'm not sure why she keeps apologizing.  No one has expected an apology.)  It just seems so bizarre to lose a loved one and this person just goes right on like nothing has changed.

 Is it "normal" for someone to not even yet begun to grieve, when that person has been gone for two years and it's a parent??  (As far as I know, she had a close relationship with that parent.)  And then now, she can't grieve for one because she hasn't yet grieved for the other???

Just curious...because I don't know anyone that's ever said that to me before.....               ????????????

Support / Search Bar not working??
« on: November 05, 2014, 04:51:48 am »Message ID: 932777
Is anyone else having problems with the FC search Bar not working?   I've been using it everyday for about 2 weeks now and this morning no matter what I put into the search bar, it gives the message "you performed an invalid search".  I've cleared the cookies/cache. re-started the computer.  I let some time lapse before trying again and same problem.  I know there's nothing wrong with my "searches" because they credit for me using my other search bars.  I use FireFox & haven't had this problem before......

Off-Topic / Lemons--who knew??
« on: August 12, 2013, 09:41:36 am »Message ID: 779608

Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming
the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole             
lemon without waste?

Simple.. place the washed lemon in the freezer section of your
refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred
the whole lemon (no need to peel it) and sprinkle it on top of your

Sprinkle it to your vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, cereals,
noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes, whisky.... the
list is endless.

All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something
that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.

Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than
preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more
vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've
been wasting.

But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the
whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.

It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

So place your washed lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your
meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to
live healthier and longer! That's the lemon secret! Better late than
never, right? The surprising benefits of lemon! Lemon (Citrus) is a
miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger
than chemotherapy.

Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories
interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge

You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon
juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant
and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.

How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.

You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice
press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc. It is credited with
many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on
cysts and tumors. Like our page learning Petals

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say
it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as
an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi,
effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood
pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.
The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of
the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It
the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate,
lung and pancreas. The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times
better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used
chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.

And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon
extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect
healthy cells.

So, give those lemons a good wash, freeze them and grate them. Your
whole body will love you for it!!!!!

               Cinnamon & Honey

                HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder....who knew?

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it's delicious too!

UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also is said to clear stomach ulcers from its root.

GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural 'Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

RASPY OR SORE THROAT: When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.

PIMPLES: Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS: Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin Infections.

WEIGHT LOSS: Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

BAD BREATH: People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS: Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing.

Suggestions / Wondering if FC could offer what PeopleString no longer does...
« on: January 19, 2013, 02:34:20 am »Message ID: 674322
     PeopleString is gone and what I miss is their main page that offered a way for people to keep the websites that they visited frequently organized and how one could go to FaceBook, their e-mail accounts, etc. at the click of a button.  They offered the BEST "main page" for one when logging in to computer everyday.  If FC could somehow offer a duplication/imitation of this, I think it would help draw in alot of new members because there's alot of people now with no good home page.  What do you think?? :dontknow:

Off-Topic / What if...

Suppose you walked into a room and discovered an adult was talking to your 16-month old child.  This person had their hands up over their face pretending to be sobbing/crying aloud.  The child begins to get upset, their eyes fill with tears as they begin to cry too.....and then this adult begins to laugh at the child.

What would be your thoughts/reaction???
