1 gallon of white vinegar

2 cups of Epsom salts

1/4 cup of Dawn dish soap

I got this from the internet and they claim it works quickly. Very soon now I'm going to use it on my driveway to kill the weeds that grow there through the gravel.

I hate doing it, but with a long brick and stone driveway (and walkway), I have to use Roundup to keep the weeds and grass at bay. I also use salt and boiling water. I keep my yard and garden herbicide free, however.

I stopped using Roundup about 10 years ago.  Wikipedia says it's not toxic if used according to directions, but I still dig weeds by hand.

Spud, you are correct, I did not believe the adv. about plastic and Teflon being safe, and I used them anyway. When I had cancer and sat in the chemo room with 17 others sitting getting anti-cancer chemicals dripping into our bodies, I talked to the staff and they said there is a waiting list of people to get one of those chairs. "Why is there so much cancer?" I asked. They had no answer. I decided I would eat organically raised food, learn the probability of cancer-causing substances in my home and garden. I stopped using Roundup among other things.

Hey everyone.  Where's Daniel and Bert? Everyone else seems to be accounted for.

I use a #7 iron skillet that my husband dug out of a garage floor the first year we were married.  He used a drill bit to grind off the rust.  Then it went into a the oven for about 12 hours.  It's seasoned well after almost 30 years.

Joan, I read your "Microwaving food in plastic" and didn't see much evidence of harm.

My cast iron skillet is too heavy for me to lift so I use it when Laura or Larry are nearby to do the lifting. They don't seem to mind the interruption.

Dying of heart disease or lung disease is no easier than succumbing to cancer. I want to "square the morbidity curve," meaning go to sleep one night healthy and happy then wake up the next morning dead. 

Live well, die fast!

Microwave cooking and nutrition

Well! Well! Well! The research reveals I am mostly wrong about microwaving food. This Harvard study gives me information that makes sense. It appears using heat on a stove may kill more nutrients than microwaving, with a few exceptions, i.e. vitamin C.

Thanks for the prompt to upgrade my knowledge, Spud. I am happy to know the best way to prepare nutritious foods for my family.
