I have never seen air bubbles when soaking beans.

Maybe you got, bad beans. :lol:

Impossible question, me thinks.

Some times I might sit on the front porch but rarely. Usually if I am doing some flower gardening in
the front of the house, trimming shrubs, etc, I might sit on the front porch for awhile. If the neighbor
up on the highway, horses are down at the fence, I like to sit on the porch and look at them.

I usually come more to sitting out back. It's very private because I am the dead end property, you
could say. I own the woods behind my house and a good ways over left to right. There is only crop
fields on either side of my property.

I probably sit more on the balcony that is on the far end of my house. I can see the pond, some
of the front and back. Deer usually come down from the woods and to the pond to drink. If I stay
quiet, I can watch them.

It's not about beans being soft and mushy. Those can still cause gas.

It's all about what you do before you cook them.

Think about it.

What is gas?

I always soak beans in cold water over night. While soaking, the beans swell up and gas is released
in the process. Then I either cook them for several hours on the stove or I place them in a pressure
cooker. The key is to always soak dry beans in cold water for several hours. Depending on the type
of bean, I some times soak them in cold water inside the fridge.

If you purchase box products such as something like 'Beans and Rice' as an example, you might find
you get gas. The reason being is because the beans are more of a processed dehydrated bean that
may still have all it's gaseous properties.

Should I Upgrade? » Post #1

Sun Mar 12, 2017 05:23 in General Talk

I am going to list some points here about this because it is very obvious many members do not read the terms, policies, nor the FAQ. Why? I don't know. Still, many won't read this either but I am giving it a go just the same. So if you are considering upgrading, have not read the ClixSense website, you don't even know what upgrading is about or what it means or what you get, well here it is:

1. At the time of this post, upgrading to premium is $17 per year. That amounts to less than $1.42 a month. If you are not going to work to make more than $1.42 per month, then I am mighty sure it would not be worth your while to upgrade.

2. Those that work here, find the main reason to upgrade is due to the 'Daily Checklist Bonus' because they make more money as a premium member when they complete the daily checklist bonus. As a premium member, you get more daily chances to win in the ClixGrid and Daily Checklist higher Bonus percentages. When you complete the Daily Checklist this can add up to a very significant amount of money....much more than what you paid to upgrade. This alone is worth the upgrade.

A. ClixGrid: You have more ads to click on so that means you have more chances every day to win. This alone is absolutely NOT a reason to upgrade. You might win every day and you might not ever win anything. Upgrading has nothing to do with whether you tie your shoe laces or not just like it has nothing to do with whether you win or lose.

B. Daily Checklist Bonus: If you turn an empty bowl upside down, nothing falls out. If you put something in the bowl and turn it upside down, that something falls out. If you are going to complete the daily checklist bonus, it makes sense to upgrade. Upgrading to premium doesn't do the work for you.

C. Referrals: If you have active referrals and/or working to gain referrals. You may want to upgrade to premium. As a premium member you can build 7 levels below you. You'll earn on upgrades down all 7 levels. BUT do keep in mind, you only earn activity percentages on your direct referrals.

3. Finally, upgrading to premium is your own decision. Upgrading to premium does not mean you will win something. Upgrading to premium does not mean the moon will rise higher in the sky. Upgrading to premium IS worth it IF you are going to do what? Read the above for the answer.

One needs to get to the root of the problem and not just treat the symptoms. And no the needles do not hurt! It is a combination of needles and a big Ten Unit that mine uses. It is not covered by insurance but it is worth the money.

I have had great luck in the past with Aleve and Epson Salt Baths (don't drown yourself!) LOL For the ESB the instructions are on the container.

I have a Tens Unit but don't use it any more.

My back pain is from picking people up out of the floor for years and picking them up out of
bed and into chairs, etc. Not to mention getting beat up a few times by old people that supposedly
was sick but stronger than an ox.

Oh I tell you something that is great for your face....

My uncle way back in the 60s came home from Nam with hair problems. Yep, they said the
heat was so severe over there that it resulted in hair loss for him. We lived in Chicago land
so he went into Chicago to a hair/skin specialist. Well turns out he married her.

So me being a kid, my forehead was breaking out. She told me to take a little honey and
warm it in a pan on the stove. This was before microwaves. Then remove the honey from
the stove. Make sure it isn't hot. Just warm. Mix in a raw oats to make a glumpy paste.
Take into bathroom and over the sink, apply the mixture onto my face. After that, leave it
on about ten to fifteen minutes and while it is on, take your fingers and tap all over your
face. The more you tap, the better.

I want you to know, that I still do that today. A best friend and I, we would do that all the
time when we would spend the night at the others house. We got a big kick out of it. Plus
it taste good if you get it in your mouth. :lol:

Then rinse it off with warm water. You will be AMAZED. Yes, your face will look a little
pinkish due to the tapping but your skin will look so clean and bright.

It cleans your pores better than anything you can buy in a jar.

I buy Del Monte fruit cups every week...Mandarin Orange, Mixed Fruit Salad, Pink Grapefruit, Peaches, Pears, Pineapple....Which I sometimes make a sandwich after drinking the juice. :thumbup: Yes I'm serious ;)

I usually order them online from walmart. I do buy the great value cans of peaches, pears, and
fruit cocktail. I don't normally buy the pineapple great value as I find it tastes different. I order
a lot of the gel cups and fruit cups. I eat those most every day.

Did you know they have a new one?

It is pineapple coconut and boy it is good! If you like coconut, you'll like it. It is pineapple in a
coconut juice or coconut flavor.

Never made a sandwich out of fruit. :lol:

I tried some of the fusion fruit veggie cups and did not see anything so remarkable about those.

Actually interesting topic. People lose so many things.

I still to this day wonder what happen to the $5.00 bill my grandfather gave me when I was
12 years old. My sister and I was going to the theater to see a movie and he gave each of
us a $5 bill. When we got to the theater, my sister paid for both of us to get in because I
couldn't find mine. All I can figure is that when I went to place it in the pocket of my jeans,
it went to the ground instead. I think the reason why I think about that some times and get
more upset about it than anything else I have ever lost, is because my grandfather gave it
to me.

What's really fun to do is hide money. Hide a $20 bill in a shoe box and old blue jeans, etc.
Then one day long after you have forgotten about it, you happen upon it. It will make your
day. :mrgreen:

You should be able to get an aloe vera plant at any garden nursery that sells house plants.

I don't have any at the moment but I have grown many inside my house and people tend to be
amazed at how well they grow for me.

The key is to not water them but very rarely and leave them in a very warm sunny location.
In addition, use good potting soil that is very rich dark soil.

As babies sprout, you can pull those up and plant them in baby planters.

I can't really think of any.

Most people that used home made remedies are those that made them before there was
any thing else. I always assume that is why they are dead now.

Ok I am kidding, sort of.

I can't really think of anything. Household items that one usually has in their kitchen can
be good such as Baking Soda, Garlic, and even Ice. Other products that are normally found
in the restroom such as rubbing alcohol.

Generally, I keep a variety of common household products such as those I mentioned and
various ointments. I think I have an ointment for most everything.

I have back pain 24/7 and rather use to it. The other day I purchased a bottle of Bayer for
back pain. Might of been around $15 for the bottle of 100 or 200. They didn't even phase
the pain. I had a bottle of Equate aspirin, bottle of 500 for $3 and I took two of those and
it really helped relieve the back pain.

How Do You Manage Stress? » Post #28

Thu Mar 09, 2017 04:54 in General Talk

Actually being that I have a minor is Psych, there are things you can do when stressed.

The absolute first thing you should do is to avoid what is causing you to be stressed or
minimize it. That may be easier said than done, depending on what is causing your
stress.

Let's take this forum, for example. There was a member on here that always seemed
to get stressed over everything posted that she did not agree with. It was obvious she
was stressed by her replies. Was there anything she could do to elevate that stress?

Yes. She has/had several options.

1. don't visit the forums
2. don't read the posts
3. don't post
4. don't reply to posts

I always saw how stressed she was and one day, she figured it out for herself and now
she never posts and probably rarely visits the forums. That was a good thing for her to
do.

There are a lot of things we can do in our lives to eliminate stress and or reduce it
dramatically if we try to understand it and then develop a plan for it.

Food. Food often plays a role in our stress. Too much sugar and fats may have a
significant impact on how much we stress and how well we cope with it. For example,
have you ever felt stressed but had no idea why? Maybe it was those 5 candy bars
you ate last night. How would you eliminate that stress? You would make it a point
to eat healthy.

What about the man that is beating you up physically or emotionally and resulting in
a dramatic amount of stress for you. Eliminate the stress by kicking his no good low
living tail out once and for all forever. Stress gone.

There may be things in life we can't walk away from or change. In those cases we have
to change our self in how we cope with the stress. You can do that by learning to laugh,
to not take things too seriously, to meditate, exercise, look at the other side, etc.

I'm the opposite.

If I am stressing about something, the last thing I want is quiet or a walk.
