How to fix a bike inner tube

No one likes a flat tire. Especially when its because of a cheap product like Slime inner tubes. A bike is a mode of transportation to whatever your heart desires. You can ride into good health, work, school, shopping, or fun activities, while getting a nice body the whole time. Bike riding also helps save the earth from toxic chemicals of vehicles. 

Your bike must be maintained daily. Everyone wants there bike to be able to ride when necessary. I had a flat tire, and decided to try something new. The Slime inner tube was a horrible product. I placed the inner tube on my bike and they began to deflate a mile from my house. The did not have a whole, the valve was clogged. The slime only works well if you start inflation with the inner tube pump nozzle at 12:00 or north. If you start off inflating the inner tube  this way the slime will fall to the bottom of the tire. This way your tube,or air pump won’t be clogged. 

I was not aware of any of this. I used 2 Slime Inner Tubes. The would not inflate all the way. I inflated with the pump south at 6:00. Not only did the inner tube value get clogged but so did my foot bike pump. Thank fully I was able to save my foot air pump. The Slime Inner Tubes I  purchased will be going returned to the store. However, I did purchase Slime tube liner protectors, which seem to be working well. As for my inner tube I’ll stick with heavy duty, or the plain rubber. I may have to replace it but at least it works. Hopefully my slime inner tube protector strips will be better than the Slime Inner Tube can ever be.

Purple Green Beans the Magic Bean

A neighbor in my favorite community garden gave me a special treat. Because of his kindness in sharing his harvest, I was able to try purple green beans for the first time. The magic beans he gave me, went along great with his fresh baby kale. 

When you cook these delicious beans they turn from purple to green. 

How to keep fruit and vegtables from not turning brown and fresh

Meal prepping makes life so much easier. One of my daily snacks are fresh veggies sticks. However, no one likes a brown apple, or pear slice, in there snack pack. So I found a new way to meal prep my fruit, and vegetable snack packs to keep them fresh. This way you can save money, and keep your whole family healthy on the go. Plus it’s easy and quick. 

 Any fruit or vegtable that oxidized after being cut and exposed to air, I soak for 1 minute in 2 tbsp raw honey and 3 cups water. This works great for keeping your food looking fresh, until you eat it. It also cuts back on the acid taste, as if you had used lemon water. My apples, and pear slices taste like honey, instead of lemon. 

Last but most importantly, before sealing up my fruit,  and vegetable snack packs, I fold a paper towel and place it inside. The paper towel absorbs all moisture, and locks in freshness. I meal prep my snack packs on sunday, making one for everyday of the  week. The whole family gets their own too. They last fresh all week long plus a day. So next time you want any fruit, vegtable or herb to stay fresh and crisp, you can make it happen, just by doing this. 

Can You Put Neosporin In Your Eye?

For the past few months, I have been to several doctors. I was concerned about the discomfort around my left eye, which was accompanied by headaches, sinus congestion, and post nasal drip. After taking plenty of antihistamines, antibiotics, steroids, sinus, and cold medicines, I was still in discomfort.  It constantly felt like my eye was congested, and the consistent post nasal drip gave me a chronic cough.  I decided to search the web for a home remedy solution, for what I was able to self diagnose as a sinus infection. 

During my search I found a solution of Neosporin Ointment  (NOT THE CREAM OR PAIN RELIEF NEOSPORIN IT MUST BE THE REGULAR OINTMENT ). 

Apparently it works for eye and ear infections. Most people message boards said to follow the instructions and don’t put it in your eye. However, many reviews said it worked for eye, sinus, and ear infections. I outweighed my options and decided to try it. I looked online to see how to apply it. Most people suggested using a q-tip, so that’s what I did. 

You put the Neosporin on the q-tip. Pull down your eye lid, and roll it under your eyelid. 

Then close your eyes and lay down. I applied it in my eyes before bed, because once in your eye you need it to melt and coat your eye.It’s hard to see with it in your eye.  In the mornings and at night I applied it my nose, and ears as well. I could feel the difference the first time I used it. It does not burn at all. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE OINTMENT NO CREAM OR PAIN RELIEF OINTMENT NEOSPORIN OR IT WILL BURN. 

My post nasal drip is finally stopping. I still use a nasal saline rinse 3 times a day as well and I’m almost cured. I tried Zyrtec, Claratin, Benadryl, and Flonase but none worked. The last doctor of 3 I went to suggested I try Allegra, and I’m finally getting full relief. But NEOSPORIN OINTMENT SAVED MY LIFE. I’M ALMOST GOOD AS NEW AFTER ALMOST A YEAR OF POST NASAL DRIP, AND SINUS INFECTION. I said if it worked I would right a blog about it. I would suggest this for kids and adults as a home remedy. I give it 5 stars. 

A Racing Mind

The whole point of living is trying new things.

Exploring the beauty in life by everything you achieve.

Boredom is not empty but full of death. 

Creativity is what puts you into life’s breath.

Fear and negativity will always be your pain. 

Truth hurts, but lies kill. 

The choice is yours on how you spend your thoughts. 

You are what you think.

You become what you eat.

Your addictions control your life. 

Love is always by your side. 

You were born alone.

Let your mind be your best friend and love you endlessly.

Once you kiss your heart, your smile will be contagious. 

Mango Iced Tea Off The Tree

So you have a tree in your yard? It’s bearing so much fruit what should you do? My fruit bearing tree is mango.

image

I decided to make mango iced tea today.  I took 3 mangoes, pealed them and liquefied them in the blender. Then I strained the pulp from the juice, and put the mango juice back in the blender.

image

I seeped my favorite iced tea bag  in 4 cups of boiling water. I added 1/2 lemon, and 1 cup of sugar, and seeped tea to the mango juice. Then I filled the blender with ice. I liquefied the mix, and placed it in the freezer to chill. The end result was mouth-watering mango iced tea. I will try this with other fruit as well.

Frying Chicken Covered or Uncovered

Yesterday I saw Martha Stewart frying chicken covered, in a cast iron skillet on her show. Tonight I’m frying chicken, and I decided to give it a try. I may not have a cast iron skillet yet but I do have a cover.
I’m preparing this meal as we speak. I did begin frying with the chicken covered the first five minutes of cooking.

image

However, I noticed once I opened the lid, the chicken appeared to be boiling in the oil. Now I like my fried chicken crispy. So this was not working for me at all. As I left the lid off, the chicken steamed less, causing less condensation in the oil, and more deep frying.  Yet I do think the lid on the first few minutes helped cook the chicken through some. But I’m finishing off lid off.

image

So now that it’s done I can see the difference in the crispness of the chicken I fried. The chicken I kept covered came out good but not as crispy as I like.

image

The chicken I only covered the first five minutes came out deliciously crispy and crunchy, yet it’s still moist inside.

OMEGA LOVE

Love is a word used on a daily basis. People tend to love as a present emotion. Rather than as an infinite silent state of mind. Love is not an action, it is a living presence. Love can be expressed through actions, but must not be replaced by them.
You see love has no space, or time. Love can grow beyond the Milky Way, or deminish smaller than a seed of mustard.
As we mature in life through wisdom of time, each human being is able to decide. Are you an alpha, or omega? Do you love, or are you love? Are you willing, or do you want to just survive?
Life is amazing despite its tragedies because of change. Another day to live, and more moments to learn how to love.
The world becomes more loving with the expansion of space  and time. Love is not for everyone, if there I no will there is no way.
Love is for those willing to except that life is love and accepting it means you embrace. For some people this is not easy and that is when those omega beings step in. I wrote this for my omega who cry in the wind. Our tears of joy,  and peace, evaporate in the still freedom of air. The sun, and the moon,feed our souls, as the stars, wipe our tears. No pain exists among us. No one else would understand, unless they can drink of  living water, which is embodied in all humans.
You see people come and go on our earth everyday. But not all stop to think we are the water of our water world. Our bodies are what we think. Love is water. We are water.  We are one love.

Katt Williams

It happens all the time in today’s society. Reckless carefree delinquent children threaten and provoke adults daily.  If you ever are out in public you have been a witness to this.   On the bus and trains children, and teenagers, use profanity, and are very disrespectful to adults for no reason. This “7th grader” who is 15 or 17 years old fought a grown man. Katt Williams may not always make the best decisions, and I’m not justifying his actions. Howerver, what about this boy Luke Wash.  If he is a seventh grader he doesn’t have the mind of one, obviously because of his age. What would poses a teenager to try to fight a celebrity or grown man is the question. dOo we need to question how adults treat children.? Or do we need to question how children treat adults these days?

Stung By A Jellyfish

image

So it was a fun day at the beach. I was swimming with family, and feeling the sand beneath my feet. As I was on my back in the water, floating in the sun. I suddenly got stung. My cousin said. “oh it is just a piece of kelp.” She laughed, but I knew better. I began to swim closer to shore. I knew to get away from what stung me before it came back for more.  Time passed on and I enjoyed the rest of the day, of the end of my South Beach Miami Spring Break. The next morning when I woke up in bed I realized it was no mistake. It was a jellyfish after all. A maniwar or blue box had stung me with one testicle for sure. This one distinctive line with its testicle shape. Is proof of my encounter with a jellyfish sting.
