I'm glad I took it easy yesterday! ;)

About all I did yesterday was get on the tractor and dig a few water conservation trenches (I dig them cross-ways to the normal direction of the wind and they fill with drifting snow in the winter), and plant 3 one gallon pots (1 purple cone flower in my raised bed in the front yard, 2 switch grass in my old bog garden site). :)

Today I planted 3 3 gallon pots (2 western sand-cherries, and one hillside creeping scotch pine, I put all three in place of trees that died.

The Western Sand-Cherries are similar to the low growing Pawnee Buttes Sand-Cherries that have done well here, and get 5'-6' tall like the Purple leaf sand-cherry I got that has lived, but done poorly.

All six plants/bushes only cost me $28 all together in the local nursery's mark-down section! :D

Also I got some firewood stacked, and played quite a bit with my nephew/niece/dogs.

I feel much better now

after soaking my feet in the pond, and relaxing as much as possible without taking a nap,,,which is really tempting after bringing it up, but I must get more done! :D

My sister is picking up for me a pot of Oriental Lilies to add to the front yards raised bed! :)

Same thing that feeds the spring in my pond!

The fountain of youth! :D

I drink it, bathe in it, soak while wading in it! :D

The water here in Montana is notorious for having sulfur in it, if you don't believe me visit Yellowstone Park sometime!,,,Sulfur tastes and smells bad, but is good for your kidneys, keeps them working good! My well has some sulfur in it though I filter most of it out, and it has so much calcium in it that sometimes it almost tastes like milk!

I Asked ...

... Fountain of Youth sounds good to me!!!

Sulphur can be tolerable for drinking, we used to set out plastic gallons of it to "cure" enough for boiling food, etc. AND it WAS wonderful for bathing. Did a job on the copper pipes though, and damaged the radiators, flooded part of the house ... what a mess.

Wow, calcium ... that much? I just got done putting around an email about a study just done. Controversial. Mostly about supplements and taking too large a dose at one time can contribute to heart attacks ... *yikes*

Here's the link: www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,598202,00.html

Can you filter out the calcium in your drinking water?

Sorry to sound a bit negative, I'm actually having a good day and started with morning sun with my tea!

Can't complain with recharging my batteries!

I probably could filter out the calcium,

but it's done me lots of good so far, I've nearly regrown what I had shrank from bone loss from meds etc., example my aluminum based acid reducer was one thing that turned out to do it to me. Believe it or not, since moving in when I measure myself first thing in the morning, I went from measuring a bit less than 5 ft. 8 in. back up to 6 ft. 6 in. or more!

So You're On ...

... therapeutic values then, not just maintenance ... that's an amazing change. Meds can cure, but boy, they can really do a job in other areas ... it's a real tightrope act.

Glad to know you're doin' so much better Larry! :)
