Don’t Throw Your Eggs Out!! As I was growing up I remember my mother did a lot of gardening. She grew all different types of Vegetables. Im not sure about you but I was one of those kids that hated to eat my veggies. I remember my parents use to make me sit at the table in till I would finish eating all my veggies. I would try to come up with all kinds of clever ways to dispose of the veggies. I even try to feed it to the dog but she didn’t want any part of that. I remember one night we had green bean hidden in some food, my mom trying to be cleaver, I swore I wouldn’t eat it and the battle for the night began....I ended up fallinga sleep at the table. Anyways that’s not why I am telling about my mothers gardening. I wanted to tell you about her using egg shells in the garden. She use to wash the egg shells out and once she had a good amount she would crush it up and mix it into the soil. I never could understand how it helped, in till I ran into a blog. To my surprise the egg shells are use for gardening and all kinds of other things. Garden Fertilizer Eggshells are rich in calcium and other minerals that help your garden thrive. Crush eggshells into tiny pieces and sprinkle into each hole before planting. Then, sprinkle additional shells around the base of your plants every two weeks. Nourishing Face Mask Pulverize dried egg shells with a mortar and pestle, then whisk the powder in with an egg white and use for a healthful, skin-tightening facial. Allow the face mask to dry before rinsing it off. Better Tasting Coffee Add some crushed eggshells to ground coffee before brewing it to make it taste less bitter. When you’re done, toss the grounds and shells on your compost heap! Make Your Own Powdered Calcium Supplement Skip the pills and simply bake your shells at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Let them cool and grind them to a fine powder. Add your supplement (a teaspoon or less) to your favorite smoothie or juice once a day. Laundry Whitener Some say that if you toss some shells in a mesh bag in your laundry, the gray tint to your whites will disappear. Eggshell Candles The next time you have eggs for breakfast, carefully crack the shells in half and save them as a base to fill with beeswax for candles. Just insert a wick, let the wax set and remove the peel. For most eggshell uses, it is better to make sure they are clean and free from bacteria. If you don’t wash the eggs thoroughly before using, bake the shells at 150 degrees Fahrenheit on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. -www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com

Surfer’s Eye One of the hazards of having fun in the sun Pterygium (pronounced tur-IJ-ee-um),also known as Surfer's Eye. It’s “pinkish-yellow, triangular-shaped tissue growth starting from the nasal area of your eye and grows towards the cornea (front, clear window of the eye). This lesion can be varied in its appearance from small and pink to large and angry red with symptoms of dry eye, cosmetically unacceptable appearance and or affecting vision. Pterygium is a common eye condition that affects people who spend a lot of time outdoors. The eye will look red and feel scratchy like something is in it, says Dr. Kathryn Colby, a cornea surgeon at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston. Colby says it's a very common condition in the Caribbean ,Mexico or Hawaii, places closer to the equator where the sun is much stronger. Still, Colby sees her fair share of pterygium cases in Boston, even in people who never stepped foot on a Surfboard but have spent lots of time in the sun. People who like to fish, sail, water ski, canoe, kayak, or live in tropical climates are all potentially at risk if they tend to not wear sunglasses when outdoors. The problem comes from a combination of UV light exposure (from the sun and reflective glare of light off water), wind, and dust from sand that can make surfers' eyes more vulnerable, suggests Colby. In the earliest stages of surfer's eye, the condition is called pinguecula, and it doesn't involve the cornea, the eyeball's outermost portion that covers the pupil and iris. No treatment is needed other than using drops of artificial tears to relieve any discomfort and reducing UV light exposure. Both pinguecula and pterygium are non-cancerous growths that can occur in one or both eyes. But if the triangular-shaped growth gets larger, becomes more irritating and blurs vision, it can be removed by surgery. Her advice? To keep your eyes safe when outdoors, sunglasses are important both for children and adults. And since surfers also spend a lot of time hanging out at the beach, they should slip on their UV-protective shades on the shore -- along with a hat. Treatments This pterygium has progressed over the visual (pupillary) axis and is affecting the patient's vision. If a pterygium becomes red and irritated, lubricating eye drops or ointments can be placed onto the eye as to reduce the inflammation. Rarely, steroid drops may be prescribed. Pterygium are surgically removed when they affect sight, grow such that your eye care professional expects it to impair vision, or if it is cosmetically unacceptable. Unfortunately, pterygium may return despite proper surgical removal. To help prevent recurrences surface radiation, conjunctival implants (grafts), or chemotherapy medications can be used. Patients with pterygium should wear ultraviolet (UV) protective sunglasses, use artificial tears, and avoid dry and dusty conditions. - about.com,nlm.nih.gov
Other UV Risks On the EYE Just as the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage skin, they can also harm the lens and cornea of the eyes. UV radiation increases your odds of getting Cataracts,s a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision, which cloud the eye’s lens and lead to diminished eyesight. It has also been linked to Macular Degeneration, (AMD) is a medical condition which usually affects older adults and results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field because of damage to the retina, a treatable, but incurable disease of the macula, a part of the retina that is essential for sharp vision. Bottom Line is to wear Sunglasses to help prevent some issue you read here. By Shelley Levitt WebMD
