***************************
3X Thursday
1. Are you content with your job? Why/why not?
I am content with my job. I work online at home activating phones for a major cell company, and I have a few online businesses that I run with my hubby.

2. Are you content with your relationship with your significant other? If you don't have one, are you on the lookout for one?
I have one, and am about 70% content. Marriage is something you have to work on every day, and some days, I find myself too busy to work on it at all, and I think I could do a lot to fix it. That is my biggest goal for this year.

3. How about your friends? Are you content with the ones you have, how they treat you, etc? How so/how not?
Well, this may sound strange, but sadly, I have no friends. Having just moved across country a few months ago, I sove right into work and haven't been very social yet. I miss my friends in AZ so much. Give me time, I'm working on it.

The Thursday Threesome ::Kidney stone and herbal remedies::

Onesome: Kidney--beans? Lima Beans? Pinto beans? Which legumes do you like to cook with?
Having grown up in the south, beans were almost a daily dinner. I like all kinds of legumes, but my favorite is white beans (great northerns). I just love the taste.

Twosome: Stones?-- Monoliths? Pebbles? Do you use any of these in decorating? Heck, we'll even count marbles in vases!
When I owned my own home and had a huge flower garden, I used lots of pebbles. Now that I'm an apartment dweller, I don't even have marbles in vases.

Threesome: and herbal remedies-- Hey, there's a good one: do you have any herbal remedies for us to try? Anything?
My grandparents would go to the doctor as a last resort after trying all their own remedies, most of which worked surprisingly. Here are a few I still use:

If you have a canker sore, drink a glass of buttermilk. It gets rid of the acid in your stomach which causes canker sores.
Give your dog a garlic pill every day ( or put 1/2 clove garlic in his food) and he will not have fleas. This works!
Wet tobacco will take the sting out of a wasp or bee sting.

I follow a couple of those contest sites, but rarely enter, I've found. It's fun to keep an eye on them, though.

Happy T13, thanks for visiting, and thanks for throwing your name in the hat for my copy of The Sex Club!
