June Column, 2015
Junes' column is all about cool.
Aztec Sweet Herb
I like a particular herb, which can be adapted to Canadian soil to be used either for its attractiveness in planters, or actually for cuisine or medicine. Aztec Sweet Herb is 1,000 to 1,500 times sweeter than sugar, yet it does not contribute to tooth decay.

Periodically I feel inspired to investigate aspects of dental health and have posted some pages. If you look at the buttons on regular pages, a drop down shows you what pages are available.
You may have noticed a column from Jan 2014, about dental self- care. What pages in Northdays show you herbs that improve your dental health? I've researched via my Google in site search window (above on true index only) and I was able to find a number of links within these pages.
The navigation bar on the left of true index has a new section called "Dental Health". On the dropdown, a button is titled "Interest". You can still link to text-only via the top of these pages (at left top), or flip through the various directories for these pages:
Natural Dental Health
Link through this to a page, which is called Text-Only Printable page for Natural Dental Health about some natural dental health recipes and ideas.

Having been a life long fan of chocolate, and that's of all kinds - the savour, scents, softening qualities - I am overwhelmed by the wealth of glad tidings concerning the healthful aspects of cacao.

French Canadian Vegetarian Tourtiere
My Column for Winter to Spring 2013 contains variations upon the winter comfort food of Canadians: tourtiere recipes.
Tourtiere is a meat pie traditionally made with herbs, pork, or beef and venison. I happen to like meatless cuisine, and in my article I describe why eating this way occured to me at all.As well, I discovered that I could really enjoy veggie soya products in quite classy formats.
The Great Pumpkin Pie Contest
My column for Autumn 2012 contains a Pumpkin Pie recipe, and a description of country life at the Farmers' Market.
Read all about Soapwort.(text-only). This herb might seem rustic and the idea of making ones own soap from the garden old-fashioned, but its uses are worth knowing about.
QUICK NOTES: Also Link to Soapwort Properties Text Page
Read pages from this site that reference cancer prevention.
This summers'column from 2011 describes some of the benefits of shopping in a Farmers' Market.
It's still cool here, and we are still enjoying root vegetables, winter spuds and stovetop cooking. A nice transition to the salad days (which even makes sense for a mid-summer Bar BQ) is to make a 'hot' salad, full of nutritional ingredients.Try the hearty salad combination or whiz it up your own favourite way.

Nutty Banana - Cranberry Cake
Cooler weather demands that you take a little warmth into your system, nourishing your body for the winter months with some good quality nutrients. From now until March, nuts and fruit like cranberries are very traditional. These are also very good for you. Try the simple banana-cranberry cake recipe.

Ajuga Properties Pages
The advent of really sunny, moist warm weather in late May tends to spark the flowering of ground covering vines, like Ajuga or Creeping Phlox.
This sites' newest article is about Blue Ajuga, a brilliant rock-garden cover and a medicinal herb..

AUTISM RESEARCH, RECENT NEWS
The W.M. Keck Foundation has awarded Carnegie Mellon University a $750,000 grant to support research into how the human brain deciphers language, which could one day yield advances in the treatment of neurological disorders such as autism and dyslexia. This multidisciplinary research is being conducted by Marcel Just, the D.O. Hebb Professor of Psychology, and Tom Mitchell, the Edward Fredkin Professor of Artificial Intelligence and Learning in the School of Computer Science.

I am an artist, so if you run into this section, here I am, strutting my stuff, although for a quick bit of fun. If you want a 'long description' of humour, or arts pages, please write - it sure would take some time to make my images sound as funny as the cartoons are.
1. Doctors' Cures and Curses If you need Words of Inspiration...Ask the Doctor, then take the pill! I think I can make a textual Doctors' eight-ball (probably by picking through xml downloads for about six months!!). If there is any interest in this, please write the email, OR call on the phone 1(613)836-2297. I am always trying to please, but haven't all the time in the world! To Describe: A text-entry form allows the reader to ask "The Doctor" a question-any question. On the image page, a picture comes up of a pill bottle filled with herb remedies, made of images of flowers. Each bottle has text offering bizarre insults and suggestions that only your Doctor knows how to sprinkle upon your head!

My Contact Page
Some readers may have enjoyed the regular
articles and different herbs featured month to month. From now on, though, space
requirements prohibit the addition of much more. I am still looking for
backing to develop more herb research essays and properties tables. I will be
changing my column when I have time.
I have a readership of 136,000 per year, and have been recommended by over a million users.
So, if anyone is willing to offer a donation, or to have a breezy interest page made up for an ad, please see my "About" page for email or telephone #.(or fax the same number)
If you have ideas about how these pages may show better on your telephone or diary, please do let me know!
I test my site on the one inch screen of my Virgin mobile phone, and it does show text and some images. The links will really work! If you need to research something by phone, please click the top left of the page to access text-only pages. Easier! My idea is to explore the possibilities of herbs in alternatives medicine, with the focus on a production group and associated links. I feel that interest pages like mine can makeyou rich.(if not me!)
