Being in witness protection can be a lonely thing, so come on in and shuck a few ears, get silly, or just pop some of the corn. just don't put it in my gas tank ! JJ can probably use the company. Just don't ask her exactly where the cornfield is. The government frowns on revealing that information.

Good Evening Corny Folks

No, JJ, I was a truck driver and career military in my younger working days. After I retired I got interested in Healing Touch Spiritual Ministry and have taken three very intense courses in aromatherapy to use essential oils in my healing practice. Frankincense has been around for thousands of years and is still one of the most incredible oils available. I use it for health and well being quite frequently.

Love ya, JJ!

Bg-i found what you were saying about healing and cure interesting, up until the part about "light killing darkness". to me personally, that makes it sound like darkness is alive. i guess i think of darkness as a thing, not something alive. just my way of thinking.
so, HOW do you know about this calming oils? were you a traveling salesman in your younger working years?! LOL
don-thanks for the compliment, but you may want to get your glasses checked and get some stronger ones. i am far far far from beautiful, but it was nice of you to say that.
i'm surprised you didn't have a heart attack peeking and seeing me, or having your hair turn pure white from the shock. LOL
seriously, i hope you feel better soon. sometimes, we need to give our bodies more time to heal-we aren't spring chickens any more.
why is it God gave WISDOM to the older people and strength and good healthy bodies to the young people?
i'm glad you were able to stop the computer virus, those things can be reallly bad.
Glorious-hug and wave!
ladida-glad to hear your bell peppers are popping up, wow that seemed fast!
i will mosey on over to your games sometime, they sound interesting.
since you are very good at remembering jokes, maybe you should be a stand up comedian? or write a book of jokes?
have you ever read books by Erma Bombeck? i swear she has written a lot about MY life!!! i really enjoyed some of her stuff, she just takes every day stuff and tells how things good WRONG and it is the way she tells it that is so funny.
i didn't KNOW you can buy frankincense-i didn't even realize it was still around, i thought it was something from a long long time ago.
thanks for thinking about me, but it's not a side effect of my meds, some bad things are going on and i'm having a hard time dealing with them.
thehat-thanks for stopping in. i wish you a Blessed Happy Easter too.
Three30-is the town of Leonore, IL small? i've never been there.
i loved the Moody Blues!!!
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey, and yellow, white,
but we decide which is right,
and which is an illusion.......
XXXroc-well, i guess rain is always BETTER than snow isn't it?
of course, not like 4 feet of rain, where you have to start building
the Ark or something.
has anyone seen that new movie about Noah with Russell Crow?
i thought it looked kinda interesting.
have a good rest of the night everyone......

jj - are you sleeping in the healing room? it is very peacefull there
Don - thanks for the heads up Don on the thread. Good thing you stopped the virus too. I will try to stretch my brain to remember more jokes. For some reason I can remember jokes since I was in 4th grade. but it takes something that reminds me of a joke to get it started.
Glori - I see you found the threads. You followed Don over there didn't you. hehe

waving back to you BG, xxrock and all
xxrock - do I get to pick which dog I would like? We could use a nice dog like a golden retriever at the cabin.

Ladida; I have checked all my meds on a web sight one is called www.medlineplus and the other is www.medscope.com All my meds got checked on here. Just my age slowing me down.

Ladida your one thread is how high can we count in a year.

The reason I do not post jokes is I hit a virus on one of them but I got to he kill switch before it got me.

BG - I am just getting into the essential oils thing. A friend of mind signed me up. I have a spot/small lump on my forehead and have been putting frankincense on it and it is decreasing in size. I also used frankincense on a couple of dry skin patches and it went away. I know of two friends who use them successfully. One had a bunion and used 2 kinds of oils on it and it has gone away. I forgot the other lady's problem, but her issue went away too.
jj - I have 2 active games going, just follow Don and Glori over. Don has been a visitor frequently. Food game and how high can we count in one year. To find peoples games and threads, just type in their names on the forum search bar and choose topics started by them. Both Glori and Don have a few threads on fun subjects too. My dad had a hard time with moods when he started on some kind of meds for his heart. Maybe you should google the meds your on and see what kind of reactions they say they have. Sometimes people have reactions to the meds because they are allergic or have bad reactions to the meds. If you are not getting better, both you and Don need to check out the meds to see if they list negative reactions. Doc can always switch you too a different med that wiil accomplish the same thing. It is not natural what you are having and your body is trying to tell you something is wrong.
Don - I hope you read what I just wrote to jj. Check out you meds reactions. It could be your body speaking to you that the current med is wrong for you. We want both you and jj here a long time.

Greetings Corny Folks

Well, JJ, no matter how negative your vibrations are, the calming influence of the healing room and the essential oils will raise your mood and vibrations. Now, please be aware I said "HEALING" not curing. Healing is a process of change for the better. Curing is an event in the healing process.
Healing is an ongoing process and always makes for positive vibrations, and just like light kills darkness, positive kills negative. So, come to the healing room with all your problems and partake of the healing process. Healing is for Body, Mind and Spirit...not just the physical body.

Yes, Ladi,you smell Lavender which is one of the best calming oils, but I use several others also, usually in combination as multiples enhance the effect.

The healing room is open for business!

Love ya, JJ!

hellllo people in the corn.
sorry i haven't been here, i haven't been well both mentally and physically.
i treated myself with chocolate today and i think i need a bigger chair.
(chuckling at picturing myself having to call 911 because i'm stuck and can't get out of my chair!)
Bg-thankfully i missed the donuts. i don't NEED them, but a chocolate one every six months is ok.
i don't want them putting on my death certificate.... KILLED by that extra donut.
the healing room sounds nice, i don't want to go there yet, you said something about "positive" things, i would upset the "feeling" of the room with my not so positive thinking at the moment.
oh, My soap box. luckily for me, over the years i've had it reinforced, i'm
not the stick person i once was.
i hope no one took offense to anything i had said while on the soapbox, it was just my thoughts on things.
i THOUGHT i heard a lawn mower off in the distance the other day and thought about you. (minus the swear words of course)
don-was that YOU i saw peeking in my window???! how did you KNOW i was
sitting in my lazy chair?! LOL
80 sounds just about right, although on really bad days, i would swear 100.
i WAS born LAST century you know! LOL
i believe my doctors do know what they are talking about. i wish i had cutie like George Clooney as my doctor, he has such a sense of humor.
has anyone NOTICED how young doctors are getting???!
i'm old enough to be a couple of these guys older sister. LOL
glorius-we crown you bug queen. (shudder shudder, bugs real do give me the willies)
i WOULD like to KNOW how MUCH Andrew makes to eat some of that STUFF he eats and he always says he LIKES it. well, maybe NOT always, i've only seem a few of his shows, when they start getting to the eating creepy stuff, i have to change the channel.
calming oils sound very soothing.
laughed about the donut seeds.(whispers, i'll take a dozen chocolate ones)
MOOD candles? do they MAKE those? i remember mood rings changing colors when your body temperature changed.
i can honestly say i have NEVER had cornflakes that were blessed!
ladida-games? what types of games do you do? do you have room for one more?
chocolate cake AND coffee???!!! that sounds heavenly.
i wonder if i can get chocolate cake in an IV the next time i'm in the hospital....(it's ok, my doctor already thinks i'm crazy, i've had him cracking up several times)
i AM still alive aren't i? i mean i don't SEE any halos around here and i certainly don't see ANY horns! LOl
i liked your batting joke, it was funny.
three30-ugh green eggs don't sound so good to me. was Johnny Ray the guy who sang songs in the 50s and 60s and then sort of faded away?
mono? we all had mono back in the day!
and then stereo sound was invented, just in case anyone was thinking i meant something else. LOL
xxxroc-i'm glad you finalllly got spring and it has sprung. YAH!
i heard Denver may get snow if they haven't gotten it already.
hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Ladi I'm diffusing two very calming essential oils in the healing room. I hope you'll find them inspiring. I took an hour to reflect and meditate in the healing room last night and I believe the room's vibrations are perfect!

BG - yeah! I'm on my way to the healing room. Thanks for your labor of love. Can't wait. I will bring some chocolate cake. jj loves that, and I think chocolate cake will bring the right vibes into the room... with coffee. Also have a lot of 'mood' candles with different scents.
Don - yah, I like jokes that make you think a little. like this one
Railroad crossing
looks out for the cars
can you spell that
without any "r"s?
jj - the healing room is ready for you, come on over and play with us!
glori - you are now the bug queen. we can ask you anything. I did not know donuts came in seed form??? hummmmm. Do they have chocolate cake with sprinkles?
xxxrock - glad to see your neck of the woods has spring, my area seems like it is trying to do summer. Are you going to the healing room?
three30 - i do not know Johhny Ray? what did he say? did he like green eggs and ham? did he like it with sam?

Good afternoon cornbuds!!!!

JJ so glad to see you here!!!! Andrew can have those horrid things, I can't imagine eating them! He sure would have been in high heaven a few years ago when I had gadzillions of them! I still believe I got rid of them with the traps as they sure couldn't lay any eggs , I had the traps out real early, that was many years ago and I only see an occasional one or maybe they are super smart and heard about me hehe!
ladida I saw where you had horrible hard clay and amended it with veggie scraps , it works wonders! A few years ago I had a problem with water getting in the basement and put a good amount of cardboard down, compliments of the local Sears store hehe, than straw and some really good dirt form my woods and viola, no more leaking in the basement cause the ground finally can drain, just love using stuff t5hat is free to make things better for the environment and us! How about we try planting some little donuts here in the field I bet they will grow, I have some donut seeds, I will bring them by tomorrow hehe!
BGJam - Is the Healing Room a forum here or a real place ?

Waving to Don ~~~~~~~~~~~
xxrockitxx - I do believe you are right about spring, it seems to have finally sprung here YEA!!!
three30 - you are right about Johnny Ray!!!

Now I know where the donut tracks came form in the cornfield, ladida was out trying out her new car!!!!

Hugs and love to all!!!

Yup, the Healing Room is ready, except for a few furnishings. I ordered a new massage table and that will be here in four days. So next Monday we should have the grand opening. In the meantime, stop in and bless the room with your positive intentions and vibrations.

Rotten wood is good for the garden also.
Good joke, had to read it twice to get it.

3rd time "I am the best hitter in the world". throws up the ball a 3rd time, swings and misses.
Boy bends down, picks up the ball "What do you know, I am the best pitcher in the world".

jj - waving to you, whereever you are. Yoo hoo to yoooooou
BG - funny you should say that, I think I saw three30's limo parked behind the cabin and some fresh donuts on the table. How is the progress on the new room doing? is it ready yet?
Don - yes, I love gardening. If I could get paid for gardening, in my own home, I would love to do that a couple days a week. But not when it is really hot. I do not like temps above 82 or so. I never heard charcoal is bad.. why?
Yes, I hope great gas mileage with my new car, especially now since the price went up again. You know, when Bush was in and at the start of 'O"s 1st 4, gas was $1.83. Are we having massive inflation or what??? of course the news won't mention it... unless the person is a republican and they can slander in some way.

Hi Corn People

Ladida; Just one word of advice. Never put charcoal ashes on the garden it is poison. Sounds like you are one good gardener. Nothing taste better than fresh produce from the garden. I do all the composting I can also. Grass clippings work as a weed barer.
Congrats on your new ATV Hope you like it. It should get good gas mileage You can zoom around your garden faster. lol

JJ I wish I might but mainly I wish it might

BG; The corn field got a parking lot? I will try to plant the donuts to get little donuts. Maybe ladida, or Gloria could try

..
Doctor: You're in good health. You'll live to be eighty.Patient: But, doctor, I am 80 right now.Doctor: See, what did I tell you.

hi jj and gOOd mOrning corn niblers;
jj, Org, Hemi, XXroc, 6642, 175, v8, sapd, Glori, Bigg, BG & three30

jj - when I want a seedling to grow, like a tomatoe plant, I will plant the seed about 2 inches from the top of the soil. Before I plant it, I will put some fertilizer in the hole so the plant can grow strong and prosper. Planting is close to the top of the soil :) Burying veggie discards is just another way of composting or adding nutrient to the soil. Just looking to enrich the soil so I can plant it later. sometimes I will go down a shovel width to enrich where the roots will be with compost type things. Sometimes grass clippings (no weeds), sometimes veggie discards, sometimes ash from the fireplace. In the beginning I put some sand in there and mixed it up to make the soil workable.

Hey I got a new car today, like it? Im gonna do some donuts in the parking lot to test it out... zoooooooooooooommmmmmmmmm wheeeeeeeeeeee!

Good Morning Corny Folks

WOW! That's some soap box ya got there, JJ. We may have ta find ya a new one if ya keep wearin' this one out. You make some good points and I guess my big thing is to try to keep everything in balance. Tho I try, I don't always succeed, since our food supplies are constantly changing, and I'm not sure I can believe all that's printed on the labels. Many seem to be intentionly deceiving. That's one of the main reasons I have a garden.....I know what's in the fresh produce I get.

Y'all have a great day....Waving Waving Waving

Ladida; Do what you got to do. 120 I do not think I want to live that long. But only he knows how long I live.

Gloria. beetles traps I tried them a couple a years age and they attract more beetles.. Got to kill the eggs. I ben getting less every year that way

Three30 you got the right idea with strawberries

175; let my lawn mower along I need that fender. haha

from an article about him..."He was nominated for a Nobel Prize in medicine by the Association of Eclectic Physicians "for his notable and untiring work with deficiencies of the trace mineral selenium and its relationship to the congenital genesis of Cystic Fibrosis."
Cystic Fibrosis-Cystic fibrosis is an example of a recessive disease. That means a person must have a mutation in both copies of the CF gene to have CF.
i believe that means it is GENETICALLY inherited from your parents or grandparents. so, he studied a disease he CLAIMS is NOT genetically inherited and yet the rest of the medical believes it is.
from the same article i read about him "Of course, those suffering from a vitamin or mineral deficiency should take supplements, but there is no merit to Wallach's claim that most or all diseases are due to mineral deficiencies.
After John H. Renner, M.D., President of the National Council Against Health Fraud, exposed the "distortions, bogus science, and outright lies" in Wallach's tape, T.J. Clark & Co. "severed its business relationship with him." Wallach then "revised his 'scientific' opinion and quickly moved on to find new partners."
"How does a veterinarian get to do human autopsies?"was a question in the article that i had thought the same question.
if anyone is interested in reading what i read, it's called
The Skeptic's Dictionary, just type in his name.
off the soap box...
ladida-what the difference between planting and burying? aren't they the same thing? it's good that you too have done a lot to make the soil by you workable and better for what you want to plant and grow.
thanks for the bird flu....this article is dated Jan 8, 2014...
A Canadian who fell ill while traveling home from China has become the first North American to die of the H5N1 avian flu virus, officials said Wednesday.
The H5N1 strain of avian flu has been in and out of the news in the U.S. and Canada since fears over it first emerged a decade ago. It has claimed nearly 400 lives around the world, according to the World Health Organization statistics. and then blah blah blah.
i didn't realize that many people had died from it.
glorious-funny you talked about the japanese beetle-i was flipping throught the tv channels and Andrew Zimmern was on the travel channel digging up japanese beetles to take back with the people he was with so the grandma and mom could COOK them for dinner!!!!!!!!!!
they said you put them in a bucket of water after you dig them up because once their wings get wet, they can't fly away. two seconds after they SHOWED the pan cooking/frying the bugs i was rapidly flipping the channels!!! ugh. i'm happy for him that he likes that kind of stuff, but not me.
three30-that was such a cool song!! i was sitting here singing away....
they got gold record for selling over a million copies of it.
it came out in 1967 and innocent me had NO clue WHAT they really meant until YEARS later.haha
BG-well, i hope you stay good and healthy.
"live long and prosper" lol Mr. Spock was my favorite on Star Trek.
glad to know you aren't a mean person. that's a good thing.
everyone here doesn't seem like they are mean either.
good bunch of funny people who know good jokes and lots of trivia stuff.
retirement MONEY???!!! what's that?! i became disabled LONG before i was even close to being of age to retire.
don-thanks NOW i'm sitting here singing "she's coming around the mountain". AND wondering WHAT does that mean???!!!
i have a lot of medical problems with my heart, blood, bones and a few other things. a couple of my doctors have told me parts of my body have aged faster then the natural age i am.
even as a child i always said i was born old and apparently it's true.
those nuns drilled it in me to be an honest person and LOOK where THAT has gotten me!!! LOL
i WISH i was still in my 20s or 30s. oh to be young and healthy again.....
wish everyone a good night.......

hi jj and gOOd mOrning corn niblers;
jj, Org, Hemi, XXroc, 6642, 175, v8, sapd, Glori, Bigg, BG & three30

jj - lol. I don't plant the veggie discards, I just bury them into the ground about 4 inches deep. No bugs, no flys. The ground gets nice and soft and easy to plant in as the plant material dissolves into the soil. I also use to have hard clay soil. but after years of adding plants discards, it is so nice to work in. I will let you know if any peppers come up. I do get tomatoes coming up all the time. the bird flu was what killed all those birds, had to make sure there was no standing water anywhere that would get mosquitoes in it, the disease was carried by mosquitoes. the doctor I am referring to is Dr. Joel Wallach. He does say there is no such thing as genetic diseases passing through the family. He says it is all a lack of nutritional minerals, etc. and he can back it up with tons of tests, papers, etc.
Glori - guess you didn't see me, I went on the other side of the table to get my dip. It was yummy, thank you.
three30 - I remember that song kind sorta, incense and peppermint. Bet you would be good on any of those name that tune song programs.
Don - just found out about the dr about 3 weeks ago. very interesting, he says we all have the genetics to live to be 120 and be healthy doing it.

well over and out.... wave, wave

Good evening cornflakes!!!

jj - I know that was a gross bug link,

ladida - yes I was inviting everyone of you for french dips, I am still waiting fro your arrival, the french dips are all eaten up but I can always whip something else up quickly hehe!

Gee I must come back tomorrow and read those jokes, I am short on time tonight

Don - Japanese beetles are one of the hardest things to control, early in the morning I have hand picked them and put them in a bucket of soapy water with a bit of veggie oil so they can't climb out, I used a trap about 6 years ago and it has kept them down to a few I can hand pick, they lay their eggs in the ground, so I guess I managed to catch the egg layers,, but fair warning they smell awful in the trap so if you get one place it about 50 feet from the area where they are and place it so when the wind blows it blows away from the house, hope that helps,

Hugs and TOL to all!!!

Hi There Corny Folks

Don, I'm not ready to check out just yet. I wanna spend a bunch of this retirement money I've been saving all my life. And, JJ, sometimes I can get crabby but I'm never mean. The supplements I take support the body systems that need what our GMO foods aren't giving. I'm hoping I've hit the right balance for a healthy life.

Big warm wave to all of you!

Love ya, JJ!

Hi Corn people

Ladida. See jj knows about to much nutrition and like jj say you cant live forever. My day lived to be 91 and mom 92 with no pills. I bet you sell them. Am I right?

jj; Why do you act like you are 70/ Or do you want to be 70 I will take your 50sh for 70 any day ,No just joking. You are not getting into heaven that way.
Like the song says He will be coming around the mountain when she comes when she comes. What that means, heck I do not know

Gloria; The bug lady, What do you use for Japanese beetles they eat the leaves of anything.

175; I think you got something there for iron

BG; Stop taking the supplement or you will live waaaaay to long.

helllo corn cobs.
ladida-i say PAY your tax guy in veggies!!! LOL
ok, remember this is a blonde asking this question...and i AM serious
about this, not joking.
you PLANT banana peels in the garden??!! WHAT grows?
you planted the cores of green peppers-they have alllll those little white seeds in there right? they SHOULD grow peppers right?
(i've never grown peppers or even SEEN them growing)
please let me knew what all grows for you.
i water my flowers every day and bugs STILL eat the green plant parts.
i seriously AM thinking about getting the RAID bug spray and a mask to
wear while i am spraying!!!! (don't worry, i probably won't, i have a couple of bird feeders to attract birds to watch(i live such an EXCITING life!!)and i don't want to kill off the birds.)
what was that disease that DID kill a TON of birds a while back?
i think it was killing mostly black crows.
i hate getting old and can't remember crap. (and it WILL bug me and i'll HAVE to look it up(GOOGLE where were you ALLLL my life??)just to know and then i'll forget it again.
quick question about nutrition and disease.
let's just say IF a person is genetic predisposed to getting cancer, how would nutrition stop that from happening or once it happened, cure it?
i can list FIVE women in my family who all were non smokers who all died from cancer before the age of 45. TWO were in their 30s.
"natural death" is actually NORMAL, we will all die one day. our bodies are not meant to go on forever, our organs are not machines that last hundreds of years, all kinds of parts wear out or give up the ghost.
we're allll born to die one day, it's the natural order of life.
climbing down off the soap box now....
i take a LOT of supplements, have for a long time.
my cardiologist says a person shouldn't take vitamin E except in very little amounts. he says it damages the heart.
don-THANKS for telling me about the key next to the ALT key. mine has a picture of what LOOKS like 4 windows. i SERIOUSLY do NOT like pictures.
my brain uses WORDS to understand something not pictures!!
what does 4 windows mean to me? nothing, except close the curtains, it's dark outside.
glad to hear you are doing ok.
you're 70??!!! how did i think you're only a couple years older than me? i'm in my mid 50s, but my body THINKS it's in it's 90s and knocking on heaven's door.
I75-that joke was funnnny!!! naughty! naughty! hahaha
rusty car parts you say??!!! hmmm, maybe that would work......
BG-did you go out and make a snow man before it started melting??!
well someone HAS to have allll the snow, it might as well be you.
hey, are you one of THOSE crab asses??!!!! you said you'll probably
live another 50 years. has anyone ever noticed that sometimes it's the really crabby mean people that live the longest??!!!
IF i ever get that way i hope someone shoots me.
when i kick the bucket i'll come back and haunt you guys. LOL
ladida-thanks for the trivia stuff. i love it. what makes you want to slap your forehead is that they are TRUE things. LOL!!!
oh people DO give us stuff to laugh at them don't they?
glorious-thanks for the link, after i end this i'll try to look that up. i am NOT a geeky computer person at all.
that's pretty interesting what all you've done to get your soil workable
for your planting. a LOT of work it sounds like.
doesn't the "rotten" food (tomatoes or peppers with black spots on them)
you put on the ground ATTRACT bugs??!!!
i've seen where someone has drop food at a picnic and in minutes there's tons of ants alllll over it. gross. i hate bugs.
pleasant dreams allll.
i hope everyone had a good weekend.....
ladiida-haha i LAUGHED when you said something to three about catching paul mccartney in the limo with Strawberry Fields.
made it sound like Strawberry Fields was a working girl. hahaha

hi jj and gOOd mOrning corn niblers;
jj, Org, Hemi, XXroc, 6642, 175, v8, sapd, Glori, Bigg, BG & three30

hi jj wherever you are, wave, wave

oh you guys are too funny. here is some other funnies for you both to 'chew' on...

-A bank robber in Virginia Beach got a nasty surprise when a dye pack designed to mark stolen money exploded in his Fruit-of-the-Looms. The robber apparently stuffed the loot down the front of his pants as he was running out the door. "He was seen hopping and jumping around with an explosion taking place inside his pants" said police. Police have the man's charred trousers in custody.

-In Modesto, CA, Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun, but unfortunately he failed to keep his hand in his pocket.

-The record for the worlds worst drivers is a toss-up between two candidates: First, a 75-year-old man who received 10 traffic tickets, drove on the wrong side of the road four times, committed four hit-and-run offenses, an caused six accidents, all within 20 minutes on October 15, 1966. Second, a 62-year-old woman who failed her driving test 40 times before passing it in August, 1970 (by that time, she had spent over $700 in lessons, and could no longer afford to buy a car).

-The two suspects had been apprehended and now sat in a courtroom at the defendants table. A witness was on the stand being asked questions by the prosecutor. "And ma'am you say you were robbed of your purse on the street?" Yes sir, the witness answered. "And the two men who robbed you, are they here in the courtroom today?" Before the witness could answer both defendants raised their hands. The judge and jury laughed openly.

-England: A German tourist supposedly on a golf holiday shows up at customs with his golf bag. While making idle chatter about golf, the customs official realises that the tourist does not know what a 'handicap' is. The customs official asks the tourist to demonstrate his swing, which he does - backward. A substantial amount of narcotics was found in the golf bag.

-Karen Lee Joachimi, 20, was arrested for robbery of a Howard Johnson's motel. She was armed with only an electric chainsaw, which was not plugged in. Industrial thieves broke into the Bilgetek plant in Canasta, Wash., by crossing a metal catwalk and then blew it up, having forgotten it was their only means of escape.

-A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving revolvers. The first one shouted "Nobody move!" When his partner moved, the startled first bandit shot him.

-A man went in to rob a bank. He demanded the clerk to give him all the money. They told him to go sit out in his car and they would bring him the bags of money. He agreed and went out to his car. In the meantime the people in the bank called the police. When they got there the man was still sitting in his car waiting for the money and they arrested him.

-Police charged Gregory Rosa, 25, with a string of vending machine robberies when, after he was arrested, he tried to post his $400 bail in coins.

-A criminal who broke into a couples house started to take the TV, but instead he turned it on and began to watch. He supposedly liked the program that was on and laid down on the bed. Since it was at night he was tired and fell asleep. So when the couple came home the next day they found him and called the police.

-A man in Orange County Municipal Court had been ticketed for driving alone in the carpool lane. He claimed that the four frozen cadavers in the mortuary van he was driving should be counted. The judged ruled that passengers must be alive to qualify.

An unidentified man, using a shotgun like a club to break his former girlfriend's windshield, accidentally shot himself to death when the gun discharged, blowing a rather large hole in his stomach.

-When Stan Caddell wanted to wash his Chevrolet, he backed the car into a foot of water in the Mississippi River at Hannibal, Missouri. When he got out to clean the car, it floated away. Police were able to retrieve the vehicle some distance downstream. According to an officer on the scene, no action would be taken against the driver because "you can't ticket a guy for being stupid".

Greetings Corny Folks

I already take a couple of supplements, Ladi, and I'm so healthy I'll probably live to be around 108. That's another 50 years and I don't know if I wanna experience all the changes that will be coming over these years.

Love ya, JJ!

Glori - yum, I guess you were inviting all of us for those French dips?
Don - I'm gonna get out the soap box and ask you to take some supplements. We just do not get the same nutrients from our food that we use to. And a simple mineral supplement will keep the doc away. And we want you around a whole lot longer.
You too jj and BG, Glori, Three30 , 175 and all the others, you really need to take some supplements. The Doc I am learning from has done over 17,000 autopsies of people who die of natural causes. And ALL could have been prevented with a little supplements added. Even a doc friend of his who lived off the ground in the woods and ate berries, nuts and all did not have enough minerals in his system. He died too early. He even wrote books about living the natural life.
I will leave some vitamins and minerals in the cabin for all to get a few. Wish it was that easy. sign

Good Saturday afternoon corn buddies!!!

Hi JJ!!! I shall attempt to insert a link for squash bugs, I am not sure anymore how to do it, here goes - http://www.vegedge.umn.edu/vegpest/cucs/squabug.htm

That will tell you all about the horrid things! They are a dark gray blackish in color and sort of oblong in shape , the stink bug which is another horrid insect, will go after tomatoes but I have only ever seen one of them and they have wings and can fly, the squash bug doesn't fly. You are right they are called squash bugs cause that is what they love to be around they eat the leaves and kill the plant off that way and boy do they lay eggs!
I lay the tomatoes, etc that aren't any good back on the ground to help the ground, I had orange clay ground where I live, I used cardboard, shredded newspaper and veggie scraps on top of the ground and than top it off with a scattering of straw and than I sprinkle some really good black dirt I get in my woods from where the trees have dropped leaves for many years, it is also full of worms which are needed in the ground to aerate it. It took almost 3 seasons of doing that to turn my stone hard clay ground into ground that is now a nice dark brown and soft! I donate my blood to hopefully help someone who really needs it, I hope I never need to get any hehe!

ladida - let me know if the cores of those peppers grow that is interesting, thanks for the moth ball tip, I shall try that!! I do plant tons of marigolds and I save the seeds each year, I have quite a stockpile of them I like to share with people, the plants these came form where some of the biggest I ever grew, I had grown them from the seeds for thee year before they are really easy to grow. I also read sunflowers help keep pests away, I plant them to I love the giant ones and boy the birdies sure do hehe!

don - a big ole wave from just south of you!!!

175 - that joke had me ROFL!!!!

Corn buddies I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!!!
Hugs and TOL! It is our dinnertime, I made French Dips with a salad yummy!

Good Morning Corny Folks

Yup, JJ, we got the white crap BIG TIME! It was very wet and heavy 'cause the temps were high 20s to low 30s. Since it compacted it was only 9 to 10 inches, but if the temps had been lower it would have been more fluffy and probably about 20 inches. The sun came out within three hours and started a major melting process. By 6 pm yesterday you'd never have guessed we had one of the heaviest snows of the winter. DON, we've seen it before and I'm sure we'll see it again. MN is positioned to get the cold Canadian air out of the northwest and the warm moisture laden air from the gulf. Causes plenty of moisture both winter and summer.

Ladi, I have our taxes done by a very competent private individual. Both my wife and I are retired but my wife has her own private "retirement career" and I just can't convince her to make quarterly payments. As a result we've paid the additional taxes plus the penalty for not coughing up enough for the government.

A beautiful day here in my suburban cornfield.......we're gonna have a surprise 16th birthday party here for our grandson. A good time will be had by all!

Love ya, JJ!

Good Saturday morning. Te week's heavy rain forced me above ground and to give up on the hibernation.
I actually saw some green things around this week. And it wasn't mold. Maybe it was bags of Scotts fertilizer.

Here is one for Don:

A kid is walking down the street with a roll of duct tape and walks past old man Jones' house.
Old man Jones says "What are ya doin with that duct tape?"
"I'm goin to catch me some ducks!"
"that's not how ya do it..."
"We'll see..."
A couple hours later, the kid walks back with a half dozen ducks tangled up in the tape, the old man's jaw dropped.
The next day he walks by old man Jones again with a roll of chicken wire.
"Where ya goin with that chicken wire?"
"Gonna catch me some chickens."
"Uh, that's now how it's done, son."
"We'll see..." said the little kid.
A few hours later, sure enough he walks by with a bunch of chickens, the old man scratching his head.
The next day, the kid walks by with a stick.
"Where ya goin with that stick?"
"It's not a stick, it's pussywillow"
"Hang on, I'll grab my hat. I'm coming with you!"

Hi Corn people

Ladida; I see you know a lot about garden bugs, worms. Another is to put lime in the bottom of the tomato hole to prevent blight. Keeps the leaves from dyeing.
You are right about doctors some do care. About nutrition, If you eat right you do not need pills to prevent the disease. I am guessing you sell nutrition pills.
I am in my 70's and I do not take any nutrition pills.

jj I know what key I hit the one next to the ALT on either side of the space bar that is the zap key.
I hope you are doing well and all your troubles be small.

Bg I see where you had all that snow what a bummer. Mother nature does not like your state.

Gloria 175 three30 Waving at you.

All is ok here today
