A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hello Everyone,

It's hard to believe July is here already. I think every year seems to go by more and
more quickly. As we near the time of our country's celebration of Independence Day, I
am reminded just how fortunate we are to be able to enjoy our freedoms of speech and
press. With that thought in mind, I am asking you to consider signing the petition below
to allow the words "Under God" to still be in the Pledge of Allegiance. Let's stop this
encroachment on our personal liberties.

THE PLEDGE:

Dear friend,

We are RUSHING you this update because the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals just ruled the Pledge Of Allegiance
unconstitutional in our public schools!

The judges ruled that the phrase "under God" is a violation
of the U.S. Constitution because it creates an "establishment"
of religion.

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!! WE MUST TAKE ACTION!

Grassfire.net has just launched a nationwide petition to rally
hundreds of thousands of Americans as quickly as possible who
will stand up and say, "I Support The Pledge In Our Schools".

PLEDGE IN OUR SCHOOLS:

Grassfire.net wants to deliver 1,000,000 petitions as soon as
possible directly to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, as
well as the U. S. Supreme Court, leaders in Congress and
President Bush.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION IN SUPPORT OF THE PLEDGE.

THEN, ALERT YOUR FRIENDS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!

P.S. If you haven't yet read what these judges said in their
ruling, be sure to click the link below. YOU WILL BE SHOCKED

With it being so hot remember to drink your electrolytes if you get out in
this heat and stay cool if at all possible. Potassium depletion is a real
problem in the summer. It's a very important mineral. Read more about an
easy way to provide your body the potassium it needs:

I appreciate your readership.

Until next time,

HERB/VITAMIN NEWS

CORNSILK by Liz Swain

Description

Cornsilk (Zea mays) is an herbal remedy made from stigmas, the yellowish thread-like
strands found inside the husks of corn. The stigmas are found on the female flower of
corn, a grain that is also known as maize and is a member of the grass family
(Gramineae or Poaceae). The stigmas measure 4-8 in (10-20 cm) long and are collected
for medicinal use before the plant is pollinated. Cornsilk can also be removed from corn
cobs for use as a remedy.

If fertilized, the stigmas dry and become brown. Then yellow corn kernels develop.
Corn is native to North America and now grows around the world in warm climates.

Cornsilk is also known as mother's hair, Indian corn, maize jagnog, Turkish corn, yu mi
xu, and stigmata maydis.

General use

Some historians believe that corn has grown for more than 7,000 years in North
America. About the time that Christopher Columbus brought the first corn to Europe, the
grain grew throughout North and South America. The venerable plant's stigmas have
long been used in folk medicine to treat urinary conditions including inflammation of the
bladder and painful urination. Read More ...

HEALTH RELATED TIPS

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

The label on the bottle says an amount, someone else is telling me a different amount,
who should I believe? They may all have portions of the correct answer. However,
we can't make decisions on portions, Can We?

We should always consider age, how long have I had the problem and my digestive
system capabilities. We can't digest nutrients any better than we can our food. If we
have lots of belching, bloating and gas then usually we are having a problem breaking
down our foods into useable nutrients.

This explains why we can take the appropriate amounts of natural health products and
often not experience any benefit even though it has helped numerous friends with the
same health problems.

In my opinion, I suggest someone look at the label and start out taking half the
recommended amount. If after a week or so at that dose there are no problems then
you can begin increasing until you reach the suggested amount.

It stands to reason, that the label is often arrived at by considering an average
weighted individual will be taking this product. If you are considerably lighter or heavier
than average then you will need to adjust accordingly.

By starting out slowly and keeping track of your experiences you can determine if you
are having any detrimental effects after taking the nutrients in question.. If so, then you
can adjust the amount accordingly or discontinue altogether.

Being sensible and watching for adverse reactions it's very possible to have enjoyable
experiences using natural health supplements. After all, I have been doing just that for
over 20 years.

WAR OF THE ROSES
There are so many "rose" labeled oils and products, which do I use?

Gertrude Stein's quote "rose, is a rose, is a rose" is not quite correct when it comes to
rose oils and products.  Rose otto, rose oil, rose essence, rosewood, rose hydrosol,
rose maroc just to name a few are some of the "rose" named oils you will encounter
when shopping for essential oils.  Which is really from the rose and what does it all
mean?  Why is there such a wide range in prices? Read More ...

LAUGHING LINES

MY CHAUFFEUR CAN ANSWER THAT!

When Albert Einstein was making the rounds of the speaker's circuit, he
usually found himself eagerly longing to get back to his laboratory work.
One night as they were driving to yet another rubber-chicken dinner,
Einstein mentioned to his chauffeur (a man who somewhat resembled Einstein
in looks and manner) that he was tired of speechmaking.

"I have an idea, boss," his chauffeur said. "I've heard you give this
speech so many times. I'll bet I could give it for you."

Einstein laughed loudly and said, "Why not? Let's do it!"

When they arrived at the dinner, Einstein donned the chauffeur's cap and
jacket and sat in the back of the room. The chauffeur gave a beautiful
rendition of Einstein's speech and even answered a few questions expertly.

Then a supremely pompous professor asked an extremely esoteric question
about anti-matter formation, digressing here and there to let everyone in
the audience know that he was nobody's fool.

Without missing a beat, the chauffeur fixed the professor with a steely
stare and said,

"Sir, the answer to that question is so simple that I will let my chauffeur,
who is sitting in the back, answer it for me."
