Wives will outsmart you every time. I told my wife "50 years ago we had a cheap suite, no car, a black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 23 year old gal. Now I have a million dollar home, a $80,000.00 car, plasma screen TV, but I am sleeping with a 65 year old woman".

My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a 23 year old hot gal and she would make sure that I once again would be living in a cheap suite, no car, sleep on a sofa bed, and watch the news on a 10 inch black and white TV.

Besides grouping our foods under the headings of six foodstuffs, we classify them as base forming and acid forming. These terms do not refer to the taste of food but rather to the use of foods in the body. Foods are acid-forming or base forming according to the ash that is left after they are digested and utilized by the body. The body needs both types of foods so that one counteracts the other, preserving neutrality that is essential for health.

Base-forming foods are milk, milk-products, fruits, and vegetables, except prunes, plums, cranberries and corn.
Acid-forming foods are meat, fish, egg, grains, prunes, plums, cranberries, and corn.

You want to try veggie burgers; they are great imitations of the real thing. Many companies now make them in a variety of tastes and styles. Some mimic meat; others are intentionally grain like. All are lower in calories and fat than a conventional burger and higher in fibre. Many have a respectable amount of protein, too. Their weakness is sodium: The rated burgers have 250 to 500 milligrams. (The recommended daily limit is 2,300 milligrams)

A variety of emergency situations, from floods to earthquakes to toxic spills, could contaminate the local water supply and leave you without access to water. As a result, it's important to know how to safely store and treat water of uncertain purity during an emergency.

The best way to treat water is often a combination of methods, as boiling and disinfection will kill most microorganisms but only distillation will remove other contaminants. Boiling is the safest method of treating water. Keep water at a boil for 10 minutes for maximum effectiveness.

Disinfection with regular household liquid bleach can also kill microorganisms. Use only liquid bleach that contains 5.25 percent sodium hypochlorite as the active ingredient. DO NOT USE scented bleaches, colour-safe bleaches or bleaches with added cleaners.

Add one to two drops of bleach per litre of clear water. Stir and let stand for 30 minutes. If the water does not have a slight bleach odour, repeat the dosage and let stand another 15 minutes.

Distillation involves boiling water and then collecting the vapour that condenses back to water.
