I was watching the "start a fire with out a match" video.. and it got me thinking.. Do i hear a collective "oh shit what now" from my pards... Don't make me crawl thru the screen like some asian horror movie (was that the ring?) and slap the shit out ya all.. Think this might be good..

Here's the deal, while watching the vid i thought well yeah, but we all know that..then i thought well maybe not, cause i just found out a new use for WD-40, that i didn't know, and maybe others have recently been surprised by a little help full hint from Heloise.. So with that in mind i thought maybe we could all post a tip that's new.. Obviously we all know that toothpaste works better than Spackle, but I'm guessing that if we put our heads to common work here we could find a couple of things to help our buds that they did not know..

I'll start with the WD-40 thing, I keep old Red plugged in cause he's a cold blooded old Diesel, and during the winter i have to cycle the glow plugs a couple of three times to talk him into starting..So i'm talking to a an old boy that lives in the area who has a diesel tractor.. I ask him (batts are low at this point) if he has any eyther i can borrow to spray in the intake .. He says no, but i just heard you can use WD-40 for the eyther drill..Says he did, and worked.. So i take my handy little can out spray a bunch into Reds intake (dont even pull the intake shroud).. and Blam..fired up and ran on like the first turn over.. I had no idea.. Your turn..

Several Health Ones

Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue
dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of
diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as
researched by western scientists.

HEART DISEASE:
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly
and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast.� It reduces the cholesterol in
the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.
Also those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily,
they are kept miles away from the next attack.� Regular use of the above
process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat.� In America
and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and
have found that as� you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility
and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.
ARTHRITIS:
Arthritis patients may take daily, morning, and night, one cup of hot water
with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken
regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured.� In a recent research
conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors
treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half
teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week,
out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally
relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not
walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.
BLADDER INFECTIONS:
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass
of lukewarm water and drink it.� It destroys the germs in the bladder.
TOOTHACHE:
Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey
and apply on the aching tooth.� This may be applied three times a day until
the tooth stops aching.
CHOLESTEROL:
Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16
ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the
level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours.� As
mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic
cholesterol is cured.� According to information received in the said
journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of
cholesterol.
COLDS:
Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon
lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days.
This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses..
UPSET STOMACH:
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach
ulcers from the root.
GAS:
According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if
honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
IMMUNE SYSTEM:
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and
protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.� Scientists have found
that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts.
Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight
bacteria and viral diseases.
INDIGESTION:
Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food
relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.
INFLUENZA:
A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient
which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.
LONGEVITY:
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the
ravages of old age.� Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder
and three cups of water and boil to make like tea.
Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day.� It keeps the skin fresh and soft
and arrests old age.� Life spans also increases and even a 100 year old,
starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.
WEIGHT LOSS:
Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and
at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup
of water.� If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese
person.� Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to
accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.
CANCER:
Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of
the stomach and bones have been cured successfully.
Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one
tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three
times a day.
FATIGUE:
Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful
rather than! than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior
citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert
and flexible.� Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half
tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon
powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M.
when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of
the body within a week.

Sounds amazing...a little too amazing, but thought I would post it anyway!

Here is one of my own:
If you run out of windex and need to clean glass...use Spray Air Freshner, also any glass cleaning works best with newspaper (black and white print)

Greg...Hints

Ok, I'll go. I will just mention a couple things I recommend in practice...warts...for plantar warts, put a peice of duct tape on it and then rip it off everyday and start over. You might have heard about this somewhere, but I did a little "study"in my office with it and I found it works in 75% of my patients. It can take up to 4- 6 weeks to completly get rid of it. Nothing is a hundred percent, some people it doesn't work on and you have to surgicaly excise them or freeze them with nitrogen, but I was surprised at how effective it was for 75% of people I had tried it on. And actually there was some formal research done on it and they found that the glue in the duct tape acts as a skin irritant causing the skin to exfoliate itself, in a similar way that salicylic acid does. Also, for thick fungal nails, put some vic vapor rub on them at night. It softens up the nail in almost 100% of the patients I tried it on and in about 60% of cases will eventually copletely cure the fungus.

Hey Doc, terbinafine is cheap now. I sell 30 tabs for less than $20. Sure beats the $1000 or so for a 12 week treatment a few years back when it was brand name only.
