Bee Sting Curing Remedy


It might be wise to carry a penny in your pocket while working in the yard.... 



(This is an email that was passed on to me.)



A couple of weeks ago, I was stung by both a bee and hornet while working in the garden. My arm swelled up, so I went to the doctor.  The clinic gave me cream and an antihistamine.  The next day the swelling was getting progressively worse, so I went to my regular doctor.  The arm was infected and needed an antibiotic.The doctor told me - "The next time you get stung, put a penny on the bite for 15 minutes".

That night, my niece was stung by two bees.  I looked at the bite and it had already started to swell.  So, I taped a penny to her arm for 15 minutes.  The next morning, there was no sign of a bite.  We decided that she just wasn't allergic to the sting.

Soon, I was gardening outside.  I got stung again, twice by a hornet on my left hand.  I thought, here I go again to the doctor for another antibiotic.

I promptly got my money out and taped two pennies to my bites, then sat and sulked for 15 minutes.  The penny took the sting out of the bite immediately.

In the meantime the hornets were attacking, and my friend was stung on the thumb.  Again the penny.  The next morning I could only see the spot where the hornet had stung me.  No redness, no swelling.  My friend's sting was the same; couldn't even tell where she had been stung.
She got stung again a few days later on her back---cutting the grass!  And the penny worked once again.

Wanted to share this marvelous information in case you experience the same problem... We need to keep a stock of pennies on hand.

The doctor said that the copper in the penny counteracts the bite.  It definitely works!
Please remember and pass this information on to your friends, children, grandchildren

DIY Car Kit Ideas: List of Items

A DIY car kit is not the same thing as an emergency kit - they serve different purposes.

A true emergency kit should go in the back of the trunk, including items such as band-aids, Neosporin, and other trauma or survival aids. DIY car kits have non-emergency items ---but used for your own personal "emergencies," such as spilling ketchup on your shirt or a sudden headache when driving on the road.

**A DIY car kit should be in a small to medium sized container, with a zipping or buckling component to ensure the items stay inside. It can be a flimsy material bag, or a sturdy plastic container. But make sure it is small enough that it will not take up a lot of space in your back seat. The ideal size would be able to fit underneath the seat or on the floorboard.

See the items below to configure your own Car Kit according to what YOU think you'll need "in case of emergency."

6-Month DIY Wedding: The Timeline Checklist

First of all, what do I mean by a "DIY Wedding?"

A wedding that is at least 75% of planning and services done by YOU. This means NO fancy venues, expensive wedding cakes, unnecessary rentals, catering, and more.

If this isn't you, then you will not find this DIY Wedding Checklist helpful...at all.
If this is you, then read on and enjoy!

On the side note....

Which one are you?:

Just got engaged (but having a short engagement -- 4 to 6 months)? No worries. You'd be surprised how many people pull of an entire DIY wedding in less than 4 or 5 months, so if they can, so can you. Just follow the Wedding Checklist and Timeline below:


Not yet "officially" engaged (but know you are about to be)? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to plan ahead, especially if you are planning the wedding all by yourself. No, you absolutely don't need to buy anything yet (and shouldn't) but you must plan ahead and know exactly what you want to do. That way, once the engagement finally comes, yo…
