Those Miracle Cures

 Concept cars of the day:                                                                           Just to show I am not stuck in the 50s I will show some Concepts of today Check this Mercedes                                           


For today:

No matter what your problem is there is a ‘guaranteed’ answer or cure on the net.

Some examples from my ‘spam:’

….. Wrinkles? 3-4 drops of this and you will never be bothered again with wrinkles……  …..  I am sure this must be strychnine or arsenic.

….Eat this for breakfast and you will cease to have any ringing in your ears. (Again this must be strychnine)

…..New knees in a week…. (Probably must pay for installation!)

…..Grow hair in 7 days   (That must be hair in your ears or nose!)…..

…..Jack, Get a Full head of hair in 24 days or less….. (That must be a wig?)

…..Hi blood sugar? Cure it in 30 minutes!.....probably a tourniquet around the neck!

…….Your back itching?  Your liver might be dying! WHAT???

…..In my teens I heard about the ‘secret carburetor’ that would give 60 miles per gallon of gas. But the oil people bought it and the design is in their safe!  You believe that, I bet there is a bridge for sale in NYC!

There have always been crazy stories passed down, but now with the internet and FREE exposure things have gone weird.

Heard a good one lately?


PS: From yesterday, About the video of our previous home. I remembered Myra saying that one could get a look into a previous home when it went up for sale and was on the net. So we had to look. AND YES it has been very much up graded in appliances and décor. To us it was just a home and YES the grand kids loved it and we did too. WE only lived there 5 years before I built this one because we were going to live on the road and were ‘concerned’ someone would be hurt (or worse) in the pool while we were gone..

..... Thanks for the nice comments, it was a fun house to build!    …

What a light-hearted look! Remember when they used to call that 'yellow journalism?' I guess these are the same folks (I refuse to call them journalists) from the National Enquirer, moonlighting perhaps. Pity those who are so desparate to grab the golden ring (that) they actually buy into these promises.

I remember I felt weak so I bought a bottle of "New" Vitamins that would make me strong again. They cost 99 cents. I did not have the strength to open the top. I went back to the doctor and asked him to open the bottle for me. He charged me $5.

Someone suggested I drink a pint of that dark brown stout beer each day. I got a big barrel installed in the kitchen. It worked. When they brought the barrel in, it was so heavy it took two men to carry it. After a fortnight I can now carry the barrel all by myself.

God bless.

There are miracle cures but you cannot buy them. They are freely given by the Great Physician. I've seen a few in my time, it's true.They really can happen. But I'm not going to buy into any easy fixes. Life just doesn't work that way. You are definitely a great builder and now look at where you are living. Good thing you thought ahead and had the vision to know you'd need that house sometime later.

I agree with MA, miracle cures are provided daily by the Great Physician. I do, however, have some faith in vitamins. Most originate from herbs, roots, etc. provided by the Great One. Yes, your Belmont home was amazing. I'll bet you're as happy if not happier, living in your down-sized version for when the Coach is parked. Have a beautiful fall. The leaves are turning bright. We are about half way to peaking up north.
