The best cure is have someone else go up the ladder!! Kinda like every time i hit my thumb with a hammer it hurts, so no beer b4 hammer.

I had a lot of leg cramps during my pregnancies. Took calcium pills & that made them go away. Don't know if that would help the male gender?!

My favorite tip I just learned in Mexico....if you eat something that is so HOT (spicy) that you feel you might lose your tongue....Put sugar on an ice cube & then your tongue on the ice cube. It really does work! Beer doesn't, unfortuately!

I don't like wasting good wine . ASAP after spilling the red wine, pour on some soda water from the bar. The stain will go away & you still have the white wine to enjoy .

I was introduced to this product by an oncologist in Florida who provides it to all of his patients and claims to have seen miraculous results.
Donít pooh-pooh it unless youíve tried it.
Pycnogenol is an antioxidant much stronger than grape seed. Iím curious to know if any other members have experience with this product.
I called in for a bottle today of this suppliment. And also ran thru youtube and got lots of good feedback...thanks for sending the book man! I will keep you posted.

Extra strength Tums with calcium will stop leg crams almost instantly.

People with cat allergies need to learn that this does not happen from the hair of the cat, but rather the saliva (SLOBBER)--from the pet licking itself...a damp warm rag and wipe down the fur will reduce your symptoms. How'd we get the word 'slobber' from saliva anyway? ...lol

WD40 and Ear Mites

OK...I tried the WD40 thing for my arthritis and It worked! I now use it on my hands, feet, knees and low back...no more squeaking ... No really it does help relieve pain. My husband finally gave it a try for his shoulder and back because it couldn't go to sleep and BAM 10 min later he was out!

The reason I went ahead and tried this is I had talked to a girl that's 93 year old grandmother had been using it for pain for over 30 years with no side effects.....hey ...thats a longer test than most meds get before they are released for us to use.

HERE IS THE CLINCHER! I tried it on ear mites and it worked! My little dog got ear mites in one ear from the neighbors kittens on one of her visits.

I felt so bad for her, it was Sunday and the Vet was closed. I thought I would spray some WD40 in her ear and rub it in real well. I did it then cleaned her ear out, sprayed it in again then gave her a bath. Since WD stands for "water displacement" i figured it would keep the water from her ear drum.
Long story longer....about 20 min. after the bath she stopped shaking her head and scratching her ear....It's been over 48 hours and not one ear itch.....
I now call WD...Wax Displacement!
