Super Volcanoes and Simple Home Remedies

Yellowstone Caldera


For today's post, I was in the midst of gathering references, charts and important data on Super Volcanoes in America. I was going to discuss active alerts, the current situation with uplift of the Yellowstone Caldera as well as seismic ground movements at Norris and activity within the shallow hypo thermal system at the Black Basin.
However, a friend known affectionately as C1 sent me some exciting and very timely information on simple home remedies. We'll go with that. I thought I would just save my brain cells and do a little cut and paste with the home remedies for today. The Volcano update can wait. I'll scare the beejeebers out of you tomorrow with the update. Promise.




AMAZINGLY SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES:
1. AVOID CUTTING YOURSELF WHEN SLICING VEGETABLES BY GETTING SOMEONE ELSE TO HOLD THE VEGETABLES WHILE YOU CHOP.
2. FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, SIMPLY CUT YOURSELF AND BLEED FOR A FEW MINUTES, THUS REDUCING THE PRESSURE ON YOUR VEINS. REMEMBER TO USE A TIMER.
3. A MOUSE TRAP PLACED ON TOP OF YOUR ALARM CLOCK WILL PREVENT YOU FROM ROLLING OVER AND GOING BACK TO SLEEP AFTER YOU HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON.
4. IF YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH, TAKE A LARGE DOSE OF LAXATIVES. THEN YOU'LL BE AFRAID TO COUGH.
5. YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE: WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN'T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN'T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.
6. IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
YOUR DAILY THOUGHT: SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES - NOT REALLY GOOD FOR ANYTHING BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

Hello Ladies! I've heard of/read the two men, haven't followed the board you mentioned - need to check that out. Thanks for your support! I woke up this morning saying to myself " I think you have gone over the edge of silly", but then I said to myself, "whatever."

Live way too close to this caldera (earth), but as they say...life moves on, hands over ears, singing random tunes loudly...

I've seen these before, and you know I've really taken that duct tape one to heart. That is why my eyeglasses currently look like they belong on an episode of 'this old house'....(the before segment, not the after...)
