Happy Fourth - Remember the Movie Peyton Place?

Hope you have a happy 
Fourth of July.

Just watching that
old movie and

wondered what ever happened to this pretty talented girl.
Diane Varsi

died on  Nov 1992 in Los Angeles. 
She was 54 years old and lived in Los Angeles.
She died of respiratory problems and 
also had Lyme disease, said her daughter, Willo Hausman.Miss Varsi played Allison MacKenzie 
in "Peyton Place," 
the 1957 melodrama based on the novel by Grace Metalious.  
When I drive into Camden, Maine I 
sometimes take a back road where the Peyton Place
sign was. It says Camden, now. You can still
see lots of the buildings in the Movie.
By age 21, Miss Varsi had been divorced twice,
had a son, Shawn, and had worked at various jobs, including picking apples. She began her
entertainment career as a folk singer and drummer
with a Los Angeles band.
Her credits include "From Hell to Texas"
(1958), a Western starring Don Murray; "
10 North Frederick" (1958), in which she
played Gary Cooper's daughter, and
"Compulsion" (1959).

41% of Americans are projected to get cancer in their lifetime!

41% of Americans are projected to get cancer in their lifetime!
Vani Hari a.k.a. Food Babe is an organic living expert, 
food activist and writer on

Thoughts of outrage, unfairness, disbelief, and ultimately grief consumed me while I was doing this investigation. A list of ingredients that are banned across the globe but still allowed for use here in the American food supply recently made news. While I have written about some of those ingredients before, this list inspired me to look a little deeper and find out how pervasive this issue is for us. Could these banned ingredients be contributing to the higher mortality and disease rates here in the U.S.?

check it out???????????

  • More than two thirds of United States citizens are overweight – 33% being obese.
  • 32% of children are either obese or overweight.
  • 43% of Americans are projected to be obese in 10 years.
  • After smoking, obesity is America’s biggest cause of premature death and is linked to 70% of heart disease and 80% of diabetes cases.
  • And 41% of Americans are projected to get cancer in their lifetime!
  • I love you all and we need to pay attention to this.

Introducing " BENNIE"

HI! My name is Bennie, I just found a new home.

Lucky for me, my Daughter was thinking of me.
Her neighbor was sent to the Hosp. and Bennie was locked
in the house for Four Days.His Mamma will never come back.
Needless to say it has been a hard adjustment for him.
He was traumatized. It's 3 weeks now and things
are starting to work out. He is part Boston Terrier and Shih Tzu.
Called a --Boshih.  In today's world he is a hybrid.  In my day he was a Mutt.
This new world sells dirt, and Feces at good prices. Changing times.
Yep! now they sell water.

Getting back to Bennie. He is 6 years old. He is
wild, runs around the house like a speed ball.
Doesn't he look like he should be called
_ _ _ _  BUSTER ?

He is over weight,I have special food and doctor it up.
He won't drink water, so I ad a little milk and he drinks.
It's a guessing game, wish his Mamma had lived to tell me some things.

He loves his new toys and bone. For some reason he rolls on top
of the toys and the bone. He has a big butt, and sits up and begs.
Renee, (daughter)came over, and walked him
when he was constipated.
So far I am crazy about him even when he poops in the house,
Been scrubbing carpet, hope he uses the fenced in yard. We have
a training collar, I am afraid to use it. If it will save his life I will use it.
He bolts out the door and runs across the street. I'll sign off for now.

If I don't post this week, you'll know I am exhausted.
Bennie say's BYE.
