I Shouldn't Be Alive- Dog Saves Injured Owner

The word "tango" acquired the standard meaning of the place where African slaves and free blacks gathered to dance. It was there the compadritos took the tango back to the Corrales Viejos—the slaughterhouse district of Buenos Aires—and introduced it in various low-life establishments where dancing took place: bars, dance halls and brothels. It was here that the African rhythms met the Argentine milonga music (a fast-paced polka)

Medicinal Pickled Garlic

How To Make Medicinal Pickled Garlic
Garlic is an incredibly potent natural product that can be used for:
  • Treating colds and flu
  • Soothing sore throats
  • Improving sluggish digestion
It is also a powerful antiseptic, antibacterial and antimicrobial agent capable of treating all sorts of infections.
This pickled garlic is a powerful healing medicine that doesn’t possess the harsh taste you’d get with biting into raw garlic.
This recipe comes from Rosemary Glastar’s book “Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginners Guide”. 
Ingredients:
Peeled garlic cloves
Apple Cider Vinegar
Raw Local Honey
Fill a mason jar with the cloves and cover them with apple cider vinegar.  Place in a warm but dark place for 3-4 weeks.  I like to put my jars in a paper bag and then place them in the sun.
After a few weeks, strain the liquid and set aside.
Using half the liquid, place it in a small saucepan over very low heat and add the honey until fully incorporated.
Pour this back over the garlic and allow to sit for another 3 weeks in a cool dark place, like your pantry.
You can eat a clove of the garlic whenever you wish, but for treating cold or flu, you should eat about 3-5 cloves a day. 
THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
