  • Placer mining operations 1960s
    I enjoy watching the television shows about mining in Alaska…. May I say they are nothing like this video shows about mining in the 60s. I know that I have said on some of these videos that my back aches watching people work so hard…. When I watched this one, I not only thought that […]

postheadericon Plain Water Mean Just That… PLAIN WATER!

I eat Diatomaceous Earth (DE) every day. I scoop a big spoonful of this white powdery stuff into my yogurt… Every Morning.
Since I have been eating my dirt I have made a real conscious effort to drink more water, clean PLAIN water. That does not mean tea, coffee, soda, ect. it means WATER.
Several years ago I was listening to an interview on the radio. I do not remember what it was about but I recall one particular part of it. The guest was talking about drinking lots of water daily. The host said something to the effect of…”what about tea and coffee, does that count?
The guest politely repeated… water, plain water. She went on to give this analogy. Pretend you had a dinner party and after the quests left it was to late to start the clean up. So you just decided to soak the dishes till the morning. You certainly wouldn’t soak them in tea, would you?
That vivid story left an image in my mind of the importance of PLAIN WATER. Tea, coffee, and soda are all extra.

postheadericon Cat Nip and Diatomaceous Earth

The other day I sprinkled some dry cat nip on a small rug for my cat that was lying on it. He of course went crazy the way most cats do when they are exposed to cat nip.

Most cats love catnip. They roll in it and try to eat it. Some salivate when they are around the aroma of catnip. It really is fun to watch how they react to it. It is defiantly intoxicating to most cats.

So I had this BRILLIANT idea of adding diatomaceous earth to the rug too.

This cat was not only having a great time rolling in the cat nip but he was also rolling in the DE and dusting himself for fleas and other crawly things.

Several of my other cats came to the rug and took their turn rolling in the cat nip and the De. When everyone had their fill I took the rug outside and shook it over my flowers.

Now that is what I call recycling!!

postheadericon Diatomaceous Earth as a Science Project

Many People attend school science fairs. What a great introduction to the community of the many benefits of Diatomaceous Earth. A whole display could be created about this dirt. Showing benefits and uses.

You could purchase a 50# bag of DE, repackage into smaller bags and sell it. You could have cards printed and flyers made so that people would be able to contact you to place an order.

postheadericon Dusting a HERD with Diatomaceous Earth

Here is an idea I have to pass on from a cattle rancher. It might give you ideas to use in many ways.

This rancher was looking for an easy way to dust his cattle with diatomaceous earth. His cattle all seem to follow a path so he placed a tube of fabric that contained DE just high enough above the path so that when the cattle would walk under it they would hit it just enough so that the De would shake out onto them.

I thought the idea very ingenious myself. It worked great for dusting his herd of cattle.

postheadericon Borax or Diatomaceous Earth?

Many years ago I went to a ladies house, she was a wildlife rehabilitator, she specialized in raccoons. She had many other critters in her house and she had no carpet what so ever. She only had wooden plank floors. It was as though she had not gotten around to putting in the actual flooring yet.

She had a strange substance on the floor that I just had to ask about she proceeded to tell me it was borax. She saw the puzzled look on my face and said you know… the horse team…”20 Mule Team Borax”.  OK OK I then knew what she was talking about.

She said with all those critters that she brings into her house she wants to keep the fleas and the bugs at bay as best she can. So she uses borax on the floor. It settles into the floor boards and works as a barrier against fleas and other bugs.

BUT… Her dogs and her cats and them too were all walking on this. They probably had shoes on but the dogs and the cats were getting this on their paws. They would be ingesting this when they groomed themselves… Not a good thing. She needed my DE,
It would have been perfect for her.

Diatomaceous Earth is an all natural  product that you can eat. I am sure you can not say that about borax.

postheadericon Diatomaceous Earth the Perfect Fund-raiser|4-H

I have a suggestion for the perfect fundraiser. I live in a rural area. The community is very much into 4-H. This would be a perfect fundraiser for a 4-H group.

Selling diatomaceous earth and educating people on it’s benefits certainly would be much better than selling over priced and under sized candy bars, or wrapping paper.

A 50# bag could be purchased and then repackaged into smaller bags. Put together flyers about what this great product can do and your not only selling something that people can really use but your also educating them on what wonderful benefits there are to this all natural product called DE.

postheadericon I Ate My Dirt!

It did indeed take me a few days to get up the courage to eat my dirt.

I don’t know… the thought of eating something that kills bugs… I guess it is sort of like the idea that I have created in my mind about eating frog legs..

Never would I eat a frog leg. Not in a million years. The image of those frogs in the pond swimming and HOPPING and then with just the bodies. Not sure,  is it only me who has that image?

But I got my courage up and got a dish out and put in a big scoop of vanilla yogurt. I added a table spoon of dirt and I stirred… held my nose, took a mouthful and swallowed.

To my surprise there was nothing to it, NO TASTE… NONE. just a very slight and I mean very very slight texture. I have been doing the same thing every morning since… nothing to it.

So you really can eat my dirt.

postheadericon Diatomaceous Earth Took Care of My ANTS Naturally

When I opened up my bag of diatomaceous earth I was surprised to see it looked just like flour.

I sprinkled some of this soft powdery STUFF where all of these ants were on the inside and the outside of my patio door. Within less than a half hour I had dead ants…lots of them, both inside and outside.

I would sweep them up and the next day there were even more dead ants. Even after a rain I was still seeing dead ants on my wooden patio deck.

There must be a nest of ants under my deck but it is all enclosed so I have not figured out a way to get to the source of the ants.

Ripping out the deck was suggested but I dismissed that suggestion.

postheadericon Diatomaceous Earth… A Well Kept Secret

I am so pleased to be able to share with you information about this wonderful all natural product called Diatomaceous Earth. Many years ago I picked up a Mother Earth magazine and read a very interesting article about this stuff called DE for short. The article told about all of the benefits but the part that I was most fascinated with was the fact that you could eat it but it also killed bugs…How could that be?

I set out to find out more about what actually turned out to be a form of dirt. Now mind you this was before Al Gore invented the internet and way before I had a computer so I really had very little to go on.

I took what information I had to my local Co-Op and they too thought it sounded like  great stuff but they were never able to find the “Food Grade” which was spoke of in the Mother Earth article. I did purchase a bag of what they so graciously stocked for me and it did indeed kill the bugs where I put it but I would NEVER have eaten it. So it really was NOT EXACTLY what I was looking for.

Fast forward to mid-summer 2010 (now). I had ants.. lots of ants. I did an online search to help me get rid of these pesky buggers and I once again discovered Diatomaceous Earth.  But this time it was EXACTLY what I had been looking for many years ago.. “Food Grade”. I ordered a bag.  My dirt was here within a week. I loved the quick service. I bought it from a company called Earth Works Health.

At this time I would like to thanks them for allowing me to use the information that is on their website for this blog. I can post stories that I am sure will be down home and of interest to many, but their information has all of the research ect. The owner Larry told me to use what ever I wanted from his site…

Gosh!! I hope he meant that remark because I sure did a bit of BORROWING!!

I am certain that the pesticide companies and the makers of flea products for your pets as well as the people who make colon cleansers would not be happy if the benefits of this all natural product leaked out

We will be discussing all of that and MORE….I hope you will enjoy what I have to share with you.

You can eat my dirt!!
