Sharon, this is another story of yours that spoke to my youth. In those teenage years, we were told that during "the curse," we couldn't wash our hair, get a permanent, take a bath or go swimming. When I remember that time, I think about how much things have changed and yet I don't believe young women are respected today and much of that because of behavior, dress and attitude. Change is not always progress.

How I enjoy your stories about Aunt Bett.

It is always so good to hear from you all, Ike hit hard and heavy here, so I have been without electricity since Sunday. Longest 84 hours I ever spent. Spent 3 days picking up sticks, limbs and neigbors garbage. Tree down close to my yard, but on neighbors property, neighbor's tree. And I now have a flat garden.
Anyway, thank you for writing, always nice to read your comments. And I promise I am working on a book.

Sharon: Glad you and yours are safe, if bedraggled. We think longingly of the "good old days," but when we are without power for a while, we learn to appreciate modern conveniences anew!

I read a lot at night, Angie, by the light of several candles...thought of Abe Lincoln!!! I have decided I can do without a lot of things, but it sure isn't very wonderful without electricity. Saddest thing, I had my late husbands relatives came here on Thursday from near Galveston...and I had purchased a freezer full of food since they were coming because of mandatory evacuation...well, they went back on Monday, and of course all the food ruined. I spent today cleaning out the last of the freezer.
I think they fared better than I did...but I am fine, just have an empty fridge and freezer and a flat garden, and one tree uprooted in my next door neighbor's yard.
You take care, thanks for your good wishes.
Sharon

Can it be grown from seed? How about USD zones? Recipes? Aunt B never thought we would worry about those plant remedies but the pendulem has swung. I for one do not like or trust mediction made in countries that hate the USA and sadly that is where most meds come from. I have had extreme side effects from meds several times and it was not fun. I have fibromyalgia and chemical sensativity and both illnesses are spreading like wild fire which makes me think we need to go back to the old ways until we can find our way back to American made quality. I just read an article on chem trails, those streaks behind planes and found it is not fuel emissions as I supposed but aluminum being spread out over this and other countries. To control our weather! How good a job are they doing with that, please tell me? Our pets died by the millions from the contaminated food with Chinese additives in it. I'm wondering how long until it hits the humans. The aluminum is found in the brains of Alzhimer's patients. It piles up in our garden dirt and raises the danger of eating what we are growing. Large trees are dying all over Hawaii with the high concentration of aluminum. Many places have thousand of times the amount that is safe but they go on spraying daily over Kansas where I live. It is even been found in the bone marrow of children with Leukemia. Sorry to get on a soap box here but I really just read about it today and I'm dumb founded and mad as hell. I'm going to order seeds for a herb garden and put up a mesh screen to catch the tiny aluminum particles. God help us and please keep writing about your Aunt's methods. Blessings Gayla Templeton in Kansas where the chem trails cover the sky this evening.

Moonrose, amen to all that! I live under the airport highway myself, and despise the trails clouding up the sky. I don't even live in the town the airport is in.
