Drink cold to get warm

Drinking cold water causes the body to increase metabolism to create heat, which requires calories — a neat tip for upcoming warm weather.

Now where was that ice cube tray?

Sing for your supper

The 2013 Hood River Farmers Market is about to begin and there is a great opportunity for local musicians to support it.

Every Thursday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. there is live music. In return for performing, musicians receive a box or two of market goods which includes seasonal produce, meat, cheese, eggs, bread, etc. They can also sell CDs and promote upcoming gigs.

If you are interested in performing, please get in touch with me: Theresa North, market music coordinator, at 541-386-4074.

Kudos to Follies

I want to thank all of the people involved in the Lions Follies production of “Wacky Wild West” appearing this weekend. It is incredible how a small town like Hood River can have so many very talented vocalists, not to mention the people who write and produce the production.

What a treat and for such a worthy cause.

Keep coal out of Gorge

As a registered nurse, a mother and a grandmother, living along the Gorge in Washington state, I want to say we must preserve our clean air, land and water here and worldwide.

Clean energy here is vital. No giant coal corporations, with tons more coal fouling our environment, should be welcome here. This will destroy property values, as well as all of our health.

Coal dust contains mercury and lead, other toxins that contaminate our fish. Diesel fumes contain arsenic, benzene and formaldehyde!

Our grandchildren do not need that in their lungs! Plenty of research shows that coal is not yet “clean” and our children deserve better!

Learn about chemtrails

Are you noticing around The Dalles, or even the Gorge area in its entirety, dead/dying trees, plants or mold infested plants/trees, or maybe stunted blooming/growth or abnormal growing cycles in any plants on your property or just observing outside while you go about your life?

Do you look up in the sky and see strange clouds or solid white lines that seem to spread out or just look abnormal to you? Think our weather has been crazy lately?

I strongly advise you to research geo-engineering/chemtrails on YouTube or other Internet sites. Our weather is being manipulated, thus manipulating the natural cycle of our planet and I am passed the point of caring what people think of me, as long as I can make people aware that it is happening, and it is happening.

I have literally hundreds of videos and pictures documenting what is happening and all of the subsequent dead and dying nature I see around me every day. This is happening on a global scale, but the proof for it is right here in front of all of our faces.

This information needs to be known on a universal scale or else we are all in for a rude awakening. This is not a joke, nor am I pushing an agenda; I am trying to alert everyone of what is happening with hopes of getting it stopped.

Please look me up and contact me if you would like to see my pictures or discuss this further.
