@TheIDKCast Those little yellow flowers that were sour, were almost definitely Yellow Woodsorrel. One of my favorite hiking treats!

What we know!

This is where we can : ( Here are some ideas)

    • Share something we know: I know that bugs are on there way out of the ground to your home and if you have a bunch of ant hills in your yard . Put cornmeal white or yellow on top of hill the ants will eat it take it back to the nest and as they eat it will absorb the liquid and  explode.
    • Recipes
    • Advice   raise your children with respect they will grow up and took what you taught them
    • And use it on you when you get to be a senior in life.Raise them in church environment and they will learn much and the whole family will be benefit.
    • Something we are: Watching Chondra Perice Christian comedian
      • Reading, Watching, Listening too.
    • Something we have been working on or dealing with etc.
    • Share a pet peeve-Parents who think that they have to be their children's friend.
    • Share a favorite quote-The height of the words you speak show the intelligence you have.
    • Share a favorite uplifting news story we have come across during the week

 

  • Esme : I am watching Downton Abbey and Im on season 2 and I like it a lot more than I thought I would! Totally up Joys alley imo.
  • About the Show
    2011
  • Downton Abbey, the award-winning series from Julian Fellowes, spans 12 years of gripping drama centered on a great English estate on the cusp of a vanishing way of life. Nearly six years ago, America fell in love with Downton Abbey‘s Granthams and their family of servants, and has followed them through sweeping change, scandals, love, ambition, heartbreak, and hope ever since. With Julian Fellowes’ crackling writing and its stellar ensemble cast led by Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey delivers wit, warmth, passion and a phenomenon that is, at its heart, utterly human.
  • My Peeve: Angry Passive Aggressive facebook posts.
  • I feel they cause more problems than solutions.
  • I wonder how people have to use their social media as a weapon easier than talking to the source of their anger. I find is cowardly and immature.
  • I feel It is even worse when people are going off on someone they love that can and will see the toxicity.
  • I feel it can lead to broken relationships where people will either assume the post was about them and cut ties with the poster
  • or the relationship will fall apart because the person the post is always about will get tired of living in the fear of their every movement being broadcast on social media by their loved one.
  • Using your internet followers as an internet Army will not bring peace to your life. It will only alienate those that you love and build walls where there were none before.
  • Solution? THINK BEFORE YOU POST People!
  • Would you like it to be done to you?
  • Ask yourself if anything good will come from your actions?

Listener Pet Peeves:

So much so that i may as well just have started my journey 5 minutes late like i usually do. And even then i would be stopped by every, single , red light. Grrrrrrrrr

 

Yea. This grinds my gears.

Two Methods:Using Grounds as a Soil Supplement Using Grounds for Alternate TasksCommunity Q&A
Sick of throwing out cup after cup of grounds after your morning caffeine fixes? With their high nutrient content, coffee grounds can be used to make your garden thrive. They are naturally acidic and high in nutrients like nitrogen and potassium, making them a great choice for alkaline soils or nutrient-poor gardens.

  • A study conducted by the University of California, San Francisco has found that adequate companionship can help extend and improve the quality of life for the elderly.
  • The study was conducted in a group of 1,600 adults with the average age of 71.
  • Through the study, it was found that the adults who were lonely consistently held higher mortality rates than those who were not lonely.
  • While isolation and being lonely can take a toll on anyone, the study found that it hits extra hard the older we get.
  • More or less, the older you are, the more you need these companionships in order to thrive.
  • The study was conducted in a group of 1,600 adults with the average age of 71. Through the study, it was found that the adults who were lonely consistently held higher mortality rates than those who were not lonely.
  • Even though isolation and loneliness can take a toll on anyone, the study found that it hits extra hard the older we get.
  • As a person ages, their social circle inevitably gets smaller and smaller
  • Dont let your age discourage you from mingling with younger people or older people  “You bring a lot more experience to your friendships when you’re older,” says Rosemary Bliezner, a professor of human development at Virginia Tech. “You know what’s worth fighting about and what’s not

Scientists have solved the 100-year-old mystery of Antarctica's Blood Falls

 

  • It's been 106 years since Australian geologist Griffith Taylor discovered the vivid red falls flowing from the glacier named after him, onto the icy Lake Bonney.
  • It was originally thought to be caused by red algae,
  • In 2003 that it was decided the red color came from oxidized iron and water most likely draining from a 5 million-year-old saltwater lake.
  • Now a study from the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Colorado College confirms the glacier has not only a lake underneath it but also a water system that has been flowing for a million years.
  • The team used echolocation to track where the water flowed.
  • It has never frozen because it has a perpetual hydraulic system that sees the heat energy released by water freezing, in turn melting the surrounding ice.

 

What we didn’t know!

This is where we pull 2 interesting facts out of our jar o facts and share it with our listeners!

 

Joy picked : The oldest condoms ever found date back to the 1640s (they were found in a cesspit at Dudley Castle), and were made from animal and fish intestines.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_condoms

 

Esme picked: The loneliest creature on Earth is a whale who has been calling out for a mate for over two decades — but whose high-pitched voice is so different to other whales that they never respond. More info on the Dudley Castle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dudley_Castle

Book i'm reading

Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions MP3 CD – Audiobook, MP3 Audio, Unabridged
by Lysa TerKeurst
Favorite this month Un glued..

 “God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of

against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way”

What we didn’t know!

This is the segment where we ask “Did you know?” and share something cool our listeners might not have known! Something we have learned this week etc.

We can:

Share a news story about a new discovery or an interesting fact about something past or present

Joy:That some Insurance ‘companies will cover up to 25,000.00 in case of Identity

identity theft is the act of taking someone’s personal information and using it to impersonate a victim, steal from bank accounts, establish phony insurance policies, open unauthorized credit cards or obtain unauthorized bank loans. In some more elaborate schemes, criminals use the stolen personal information to get a job, rent a home or take out a mortgage in the victim’s name.

Victims of identity theft are often left with lower credit scores and spend months or even years getting credit records corrected. They frequently have difficulty getting credit, obtaining loans and even finding employment. Victims of identity theft fraud often travel a long and frustrating road to recovery; depending on the severity of the identity theft fraud damage, the recovery process can take anywhere from a few weeks to several years.

 

Most homeowners and renters policies provide coverage for theft of money or credit cards; however, the amount of coverage is limited (usually $200 in cash and $50 on credit cards). Once you have reported the loss or theft of your credit card to the issuing company, you are responsible for only $50 of unauthorized use.

Some companies now include coverage for identity theft as part of their homeowners insurance policy. Check your policy to find out. Others sell it as either a stand-alone policy or as an endorsement to a homeowners or renters insurance policy which can run about $25-$50 annually. Identity theft insurance provides reimbursement to crime victims for the cost of restoring their identity and repairing credit reports.

Tips for Avoiding Identity Theft

  • Keep the amount of personal information in your purse or wallet to the bare minimum. Avoid carrying additional credit cards, your social security card or passport unless absolutely necessary.
  • Shield your hand when using ATM machines or making long distance phone calls with phone cards. Don’t fall prey to “shoulder surfers” who may be nearby.
  • Always take credit card or ATM receipts. Don’t throw them into public trash containers, leave them on the counter or put them in your shopping bag where they can easily fall out or get stolen.
  • Do not give out personal information. Whether on the phone, through the mail or over the Internet, don’t give out any personal information.

Esme:

Carpenter bees

These bees have powerful mandibles (jaws) that can dig tunnels in wood. Xylocopa violacea (above), a huge (20-23 mm long), black bee found in central and southern Europe nests in dead wood and digs a tunnel up to 30 cm long containing 10-15 cells. This bee holds the record for laying the largest egg of any insect.

Carpenters are found in many parts of the world, and there is a bee almost identical to this commonly found in the USA. Naturally a large number of carpenter nests in the structural support of a building will cause some damage, but this is unusual.

One behaviour can be alarming though. The males compete with other males to mate with females. This involves them chasing males away and chasing females to mate. During these chases they zoom about crashing into windows, people and anything else in their path. Humans in the way of all this may think they are under attack, they are not, they are just in the way. Males may also hang around waiting for adult females to emerge, and again they behave in what might seem to us as an aggressive way, by chasing other males away and investigating anything that gets near the exit hole. This something may be your head, you will be buzzed around and checked out to see if you are a rival that needs chasing away or a female that needs mating. However there is no danger as males cannot sting, so like much male mating behaviour it's all bluster and show.
