Question of the Day

Can you recommend any home remedies for arthritis?
If you’re troubled by arthritis pain, try adding apple cider vinegar or fresh gingerroot to your bathwater. Drinking ginger tea (up to a teaspoon of ground ginger in a cup of boiling water) also helps.

Word of the Day

Lenticular Cloud
Lenticular clouds are only seen around mountains. These strange clouds are easy to spot, because they look like flying saucers or a stack of pancakes. Their most interesting characteristic is that they don’t move. Winds blow right through them, while other clouds are swept away.
