Lubricants in the home

Looking for a homemade lubricant, or one you may have on hand ?

Some claim Olive Oil works.
Other say organic coconut oil is the way, and the best.
I also read that eggwhites can be used ....  no thanks.
There is also aloe vera gel, vitamin E oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and almond oil.
Be careful not to stain your sheets, I would say.
Oils are bad with latex condoms, and should not be used.
Mustard is a safe oil-less alternative I read.
( the egg whites now sound pretty good.)

I also found a recipe for a home made lubricant.

2 cups water, bring to a boil
Add 2 and a half tablespoons of flax seeds, and simmer.
Simmer until the water is reduced by half. It'll take 20 minutes.
Strain it immediately and let it cool.

Keep it in the fridge.
The kids will ask what it is ...  hehe.

It's water based, so it's safe with condoms and cleans up easy.

Are we pooping right ?

Most of us aren't.
We should be squatting, not sitting.
During my research, I came across the "squatty potty".
Order yours and let me know how it works.

Dr Oz claims, for better bowel elimination, we should bring knees higher or lean back .

Ceiling fans

What direction should the blades be spinning in the summer?   In the winter ?
In the summer : counterclockwise.  To push the air down into the room
In the winter : clockwise ....  slowly clockwise to suck up the air and circulate it.

2014 Yard Sale events in West Pubnico

Vernon's : Sat  Sept 6th

Mile Long: I assume the weekend after

My Nova Scotia Neighborhood

Just like linoleum, you know.

"What about linoleum?"

They say a woman is much like linoleum. 
If you lay it right the first time, it's good for 30 years.

Find the oddest name on a tombstone

This is #16 on the list of 50 Things to do in The Argyle Region.
So I headed out on my bicycle to the very old cemetery across from the Acadian Village in West Pubnico.
What did I find there?  Seems the largest tombstones belonged  to people in their 20's. I wondered what they died of ? I wondered where they lived. They, like I, must have marveled at the beautiful harbor, just I did on this calm sunny day. It was beautiful in there. They certainly are resting in peace.
 No real "odd names" but I did find the surname "Garland". Mr John Garland died in his twenties, and his wife,  buried alongside, died in her 60's.    You can click on the pictures for a larger view. And if you choose to search the cemetery from your laptop... you easily can see all tombstones in the cemetery of St Peters Church in Middle West Pubnico right here. They are sorted alphabetically. And the East Pubnico cemetery link is here.

The Lobster Shack .... Barrington Passage

We had reservations and were seated immediately. The place was fairly busy.
At 5:40 she left our table with our orders.
At 6:05 she returned with our appetizers.
Delicious deep fried mussels and lobster fondue to share.
We would have liked 5 small plates.
The meals came at  6:25.
We ordered lobster and salad, lobster poutine,  soup and a hot lobster sandwich, Ooey Gooey haddock and mashed potatoes, and deep fried seafood sampler.
The food : we rated it all excellent.
It was all tasty, and plentiful.
Comments on really good fries, and really good mashed potatoes.
The lobster poutine, while it had plenty lobster, it was not very creamy.
Rated good was the time it took, and the value for the money.
The server was rated as good  to passable. She did come back to check on us twice, but was too rushed to really listen. . Her shorts were rather short.
Dirty dishes stayed on the table too long.
The decor was rated excellent to good, as was the lighting and cleanliness.
The bathroom has two toilets, one without toilet tissue, or tissue holder.
We would all return.
