Cinnamon is healthy

Cinnamon is very healthy.
  • it regulates blood sugar, escpecially in diabetes 2 patients
  • it's anti clotting (blood)
  • it preserves food when added to it. (Like we want to keep the applepie in one piece. LOL!)
  • smelling cinnamon is beneficial for cognitive functioning and memory
  • half a teaspoon every day lowers LDL cholesterol
  • it works against yeast infections which can't be cured otherwise
  • it works on lymphoma and leukemia cells in sich a way that they won't proliferate as well.
  • Disssolve half a teaspoon of cinnamon in a tablespoon of honey and eat this before breakfast each day and arthritis pain will diminish after about a week.

And there are more benefits.

So be sure to have it available in your kitchen and use it often.

diabetes and biscuits

People with diabetes need to eat regular small meals.

When you yourself are a person with irregular eating habits it´s good to know that you´re a good host when you offer a diabetes patient something in between meals.
Keep a package of biscuits ready.

keep a tile in place

Sometimes the glue behind a walltile doesn't work anymore and the tile is on the verge of dropping out.

Use plumbers/isolation tape to keep it in place.

For Dutch voters

June 9th is the date of the elections for a new government in The Netherlands.

A caregivers organisation has put the main plans of different parties regarding care on their site.

Now the debates are not as much about plans, but about who is able to put down others best, a choice based on careplans isn't bad.

Look here.

  1. take paste polish and apply a medium thick layer
  2. allow it to dry for about 5 to 10 minutes
  3. take a cloth or cotton ball without wrinkles and sharp edges, dampen it rather damp/wet and start rubbing until the shine is visible
  4. Apply with the damp ball a thin layer of polish while running circles, until it shines
  5. Keep adding tiny bits of polish in circles and rub until shine.
  6. Then take a dry cloth or pantyhose and go on until you have the shine you want.

prepare your vacation

When you want to have a good vacation this summer it's time to prepare you.

Because things you need to buy won't be as expensive as they are suring the summer.

Take plastic plates and mugs for instance.
They cost almost nothing now. But watch: when time moves on towards the summervacation they'll al least trice the amount of money.

Bagpags, containers... have a look around now, note the prizes and maybe you're in for a huge surprise.

Cleaning your plastic bathroom mug

Some people have a plastic mug in the bathroom for a quick drink or sip to clean the teeth.

When you keep forgetting to take it with you downstairs to wash it up after dinner, just take a desinfectant cleaning liquid and pour something of it in it.
Let the bottom soak for 15 minutes and then add water and let it stay in it for the night.

Artificial teeth cleaning tablets work well too.

Fun with an union

Take an union and a few matches or cocktailpens.

Pour some water in a glass.

Stick the matches at half the height of the union in the union.

Place the union on the glass resting on the matches.

It shouldn't touch the water but be above it quite near.

Wait and watch, and you'll see the union change into a plant which flowers in the summer.

Free sportactivities

Now the weather has undergone a change for the better the outside sports are promoted again.
That's a good moment to try and get some free lessons as many sportschools offer free lessons these weeks.

Have a look in your local paper and watch the leaflets on the doormat.

finding a present

Sometimes it's difficult to find a present for someone.
Especially when the person is not a friend or family member.

Candles always make a nice gift.

But have you considered buying a towel and some matching accessories, like soap, a comb and such?

Wrap it up nicely and add a flower to the wrap.

It's also a nice welcoming present for someone who stays at your house for the night.

Slicing cucumber

There are plenty of machines that do the job of slicing cucumbers, but all I do is using the cheese slicer.

When you pour a bit of salt over the cucumber it'll taste different.
Some people lobe that.

Baking cake

When you want to bake a cake it´s always necessary to butter the form and pour flower in it. Yes?


Just use baking paper as a lining with the fatfree side to the cake.

Workd great!

Clean pan

Your pan is layered with a black lining of baked food and you think you'll never get it clean again?

Try putting it away for a night with water and a handful of detergent.
You'll see that you can clean the pan without too much effort the next morning.

Silverfish (Lepisma saccharina)

Silverfish (Lepisma saccharina) are annoying.

Put a cottonball with lavender oil at the place they crawl and they're gone.

Cats in the garden

Cats are not always wanted visitors in a garden.

Do they use your garden as a toiletarea?

Throw food where they come and they won't do that anymore.

When you want them out completely, burry mothballs in the garden at places where cat's can't dig them out.
They won't affect the plants and keep the cats out.

Against ivy on walls

Ivy sticks to walls and it's not always desired to have it's grasping claws in your walls and crumble them.

Take a sharp knife and scrape it from the wall in case pulling causes more damage.

Then take water with lots of salt and wasking up liquid and put it to whatever is still against the wall. Soak it as well as you can.

After that you can rub it off with a firm brush.

Against fruitflies

Fruitflies are a nuisance and it's best to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Clean the area where they come with vinegar, and put a cup with water and vinegar at the place they love to come.

They hate that!

Catch woodworm

It's an oldfashioned advice, but in case you're having woodworms you might need it.

Put a few acorns in the furniture where you can hear the woodworm or see the sawdust coming out of a hole.

Woodworms love acorns and will crawl in them.

Keep blossombranches fresh

Spring is so beautiful!
Blossoming trees, new green.

Isn't it great to take a branch of a blossoming tree inside the home?

In case you do, add to the water in the vase a spoonful of sugar.
That'll keep your branches nice a bit longer.

Make people feel welcome

Many people have freferences for certain kinds of music.
Why not find out which preferences your visitors have?

A while ago I visited a friend and I was surprised by the music he played: my music.

Turned out he took notes, collected the numbers I mentioned and burned them on a CD.

When I went home he gave it as a present.

I can't tell you how happy I was with this gesture.

Well worth repeating.

write down

Even though you expect to remember everything from the past, it's better to write things down, in case you'll forget.

Use a nice booklet, or a dummy (an empty book), and make notes.

It's nice to read back what you gave or received for mother's day, for instance.
When you number your photos you can add the number to the date.

need medical attention?

When you need medical attention at a hospital you'd better have a look at the site of the hospital to see what they require when you visit them.

Never forget your insurance card/number, as that's the most important.
Always write down which medication you use, as you might need a change of your prescription or an additional prescription.
Some meds interact, which means that they either enhance or diminish the effects of the other, or they might even act together and produce toxines.

against cigarette smoke

To get rid of cigarette smoke:
put a glass with vinegar in the room.

A plate with a cloth with vinegar works even better.

fire extinguishing blanket

The most dangerous place is the kitchen.
Many people are not consciously aware they work with gas, electricity and open fire.
They're so used to it, that they're not prepared for the dangers.

A fire extinguishing blanket should be in every kitchen.

Hang one at a place where you are able to reach it when a fire starts.

And read the text and see the images.
If necessary look up on internet how they can be used the best way.

Many firedepartments are quite willing to demonstrate to schools and individuals how to deal with a kitchenfire. Use the opportunity and phone them.

Take care you're working safe and be prepared.

keep your tulips fresh

Tulips seem to have a life of their own, even when they're in a vase on your table.

You can keep them nice by:
  • making a hole with a needle in the stem right under the flower
  • cut a bit from the stem before placing them in water
  • use a little bit of water, but take car that they're not dry
  • put a bit of sugar in the water
  • when they're haging, roll them in a newspaper during the night.

shoes and sweaty feet

Shoes can cause sweaty feet, so be careful that you buy natural materials.

Also wear cotton socks and use at least 2 pairs od shoes to alternate them.
The shoes you're not wearing should be kept at a place where they can "breathe" and can lose moist.

buying garden furniture

When people buy gardenfurniture they want comfort.

But have you ever considered buying something that can be used in the house during the winter too?

At the moment the gardenfurniture is beautiful and it can serve it's purpose in the house too.

With a few extra pillows in the colour of your curtains they will be the perfect fit.

Pen in bag

Never take a pen with you in your bag just like that, but use something to prevent it from leaking.
Ofcourse you can wrap it in kitchen paper and put it in a plastic bag.

But you can find a container of bubbly vitamin tablets and use that for your pen.

Use coloured tape, stickers or something else to make the container a joy for your eyes, you can even use a cord to connect it to your bag.
