I’m glad they caught and arrested two of the clowns aiming lasers at planes and helicopters, either because they are trying to cause a crash or are just really stupid. I hope they throw the book at them. I’m not so happy that a few days later another was caught, but because he was just a teenager, he was turned over to his parents to be disciplined. I don’t care if he is only fifteen, attempted murder—and that is what this is—isn’t something you can just turn to the parents to handle as if it were nothing more than making a rude remark to a girl.
My deepest sympathy to the friends and relatives of those killed on the Russian jet last week and to the friends and relatives of those killed in Paris two days ago. It is really beyond my comprehension how people can do such horrendous things.
“The wind of God’s grace is incessantly blowing. Lazy sailors on the sea of life do not take advantage of it. But the active and the strong always keep the sails of their minds unfurled to catch the favorable wind and thus reach their destination very soon.” ~Mahatma Gandhi
Do you get carsick or seasick? Does your child or dog? If so, a common product you probably already have can help: Ginger. Ginger is used in herbology to fight motion sickness and nausea in general. It is also useful to fight bloat, to balance blood sugar, and to normalize blood pressure. Some people have told me that is doesn’t work for them, but the majority get good results when treating themselves, their children, or pets. I once had a dog who would get car sick on a ride of only thirty minutes, but after I started giving her ginger before a trip, she could handle a ten hour journey. You can take ginger as capsules, as crystallized ginger, or as ginger ale (make sure it’s a brand that uses real ginger).
