Dog and Cat Repellent

In a quart of water, steep a large chopped up large onion or garlic bulb along with a tablespoon of cayenne pepper for an hour. Add one teaspoon of dish washing soap to act as a sticker. Strain the amount that you need into a sprayer or watering can and spray/sprinkle the mixture on plant leaves or other surface. Save the remainder of the mixture in a tightly covered jar in the fridge. It will remain potent for several weeks. Be careful not to breath in fumes or get the fumes in your eyes if sprayed on a windy day.

The Great Aviator

A recent episode of Air Aces featured Canadian aviator George Beurling one of the most successful pilots of WWII. While watching him shoot down German pilots I was reminded of this classic story.

Right at the end of World War II, a young American woman wanders into a bar in Paris, where she sees a handsome young Frenchman. They make some eye contact, and soon he comes up to her and says, “I am Francois Francois, ze great French aviator, and I want to make love to you.”

“Yes,” she says. “Take me to your apartment.”

Once there, Francois Francois undresses her, and as they start to make love, he pulls out a stick of butter and rubs it on her chest.

“Francois Francois, what are you doing?” she asks.

He says, ‘I am Francois Francois, ze great French aviator, and when I make love to a woman, I like to lick butter from her breasts.” Clearly enjoying this, she lets him continue.

He move his attention further down her body, and pulls out a bottle of chocolate syrup, which he pours on her navel.

“Francois Francois, what are you doing?” she asks.

He says, “I am Francois Francois, ze great French aviator, and when I make love to a woman, I like to lick chocolate syrup from her belly button.” Writhing in pleasure, she lets him continue.

Moving further down, he pulls out a bottle of olive oil, which he spreads on her abdomen.

“Francois Francois, what are you doing?” she asks.

He says, “I am Francois Francois, ze great French aviator, and when I make love to a woman I like to lick extra virgin olive oil from just above her nether region.” She’s almost unable to bear all the pleasure.

When he’s done with the olive oil, Francois Francois pulls out a bottle of brandy which he pours on her “nether region.” Then he pulls out a match, lights it, and throws it onto the brandy as she screams, “FRANCOIS FRANCOIS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”

And he says, “I am Francois Francois, ze great French aviator, and when I go down, I go down in flames!”

Heart Health

Heart health is not only a topic for television ads but also shows up in many magazines advertisements and articles. One way to promote a healthy heart is by eating a variety of foods. Choose these nutrient-rich foods to give your body the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients it needs for cardiovascular health.

  • Fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are low in calories, high in fiber and nutrients, and associated with cardiovascular risk reduction. Choose a variety of deeply colored fresh, frozen and canned vegetables without high-calorie sauces and added salt and sugars. Eat whole vegetables and fruits in place of juices.

  • Whole grains and fiber

Whole grains and fiber promote satiety. Soluble and insoluble fiber are associated with cardiovascular risk reduction. Choose wholewheat, oats/oatmeal, rye, barley, corn, popcorn, brown rice, buckwheat, triticale, bulgur (cracked wheat), millet, quinoa and sorghum. Make at least half of your grains whole each day.

  • Fat-free (skim) or low fat (1%) dairy products

Choose fat-free or low fat products instead of higher fat dairy products to reduce fat, saturated fat and cholesterol intake.

  • Oily fish, such as salmon, trout and herring containing omega-3 fatty acids

Consume 2 servings (about 8 ounces) per week of an oily fish. Prepare by grilling, broiling or steaming instead of frying or adding cream sauces.

  • Lean meat, skinless poultry and legumes

Grill, bake or broil meat and poultry. Incorporate meat substitutes into favorite recipes. Limit processed meats that are high in saturated fat and sodium.

  • Nuts and seeds

Including 1.5 ounces per day of nuts, seeds and nut butters as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.

  • Use liquid vegetable oils in place of solid fats

Check labels and ingredient lists on packaged foods to minimize your intake of trans fats or partially hydrogenated fats.
