Being Too Clean Can Make People Sick

mim Natural Alternatives... (333 comments)

...Are more effective & not toxic (and less expensive) than the highly marketed, petrochemical brand names. Lavender & Tea Tree herbs can be grown & their tinctures of essential oils made into a diluted synergistic blend that, when applied topically, are antiseptic, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. They should not be taken internally, but can be added to lotions, soaps and detergents as a natural preventative. The essential oils may also be purchased online or from a local coop. My personal favourite brand is http://www.auracacia.com/ but there are many other local, organic & wildcrafted brands that are also available at many farmer's markets.

Order of importance if disaster strikes?

mim Re:Problem with poll (458 comments)

Exactly! Can get the family out & (if lucky) a few sentimental items, insurance *should* (provided it's not a national disaster) will cover the rest...which, though I've become accustomed to it, is really just replaceable stuff.

Obama Says Offshoring Fears Are Unwarranted

mim And MY Personal Costs? (763 comments)

Is President Obama taking into account MY personal costs when I require internet tech support and have to use my cell phone minutes? Not to mention the difficulties of the language barrier when you can hardly understand what they're saying due to their thick accents that further complicates matters and takes up yet more of my valuable time? Does he understand that they can hardly understand me either, so we go back & forth repeating ourselves trying to resolve the issue, taking up yet more time and costing ME more money?? I think not.

Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB2526954)

mim mim writes  |  more than 3 years ago

mim writes "After receiving & installing an update notification from "Microsoft?" for KB2526954 my Vista laptop experienced a "black screen," & I needed to restore. MS does not have any information on their site about this "upgrade," although it appeared exactly similar to those recently. Can anyone shine some light on this "Silverlight" upgrade?"
