World must double food production
“We have gone from three meals a day to two. Then it will be one meal. Then we will die. Why is the world taking corn for fuel? It will mean the death of many people.” more

My daughter Teal just started a new business selling pure soaps. This is her pitch:

1 in 4 people have a skin condition. This could be Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis or even just sensitive skin.

Chances are high that you, or someone in your family, suffers from a skin condition.

Chemical additives in personal care products can be a source of aggravation and inflamation of the skin. If you remove the source of irritation you can reduce inflamation and allow your skin’s natural protective barrier to recover.

I wanted to let you know that we have a range of 100% natural soaps and skincare products. Our products are made of organic olive oil and goat’s milk combined with other natural ingredients.

You can have a look at the website http://www.soapdish.com.au for more information.

They are very effective. I know! I have a 4 year old daughter who has Eczema. She uses the soap and then applies the Skin Rejuvenator before bed and her condition has improved by 95%. This is with no changes to her diet at all.

If you are interested in purchasing these products, you can go to http://www.soapdish.com.au

Warmest regards,

London’s The Times newspaper recently published this unique obituary
“Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

“He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: knowing when to come out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; life isn’t always fair; and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place.

“Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining unruly children.

“It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

“Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue for assault.

“Common Sense finally gave up the will to live after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little on her lap and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility, and his son, Reason.

“He is survived by four stepbrothers, I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else is to Blame and I’m a Victim.

“Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.”

So-Called Education Intentionally Dumbs Down Americans
Something is deeply wrong in America and the world. It’s as if the vast majority of people have given up. Given up caring. Given up thinking. Given up common sense. Given up everything but gluttony. more
