Make your own Tee-shirt

Do you want signs to encourage the Buddy System on the Silver Comet Trail, or all the trails you go on? One suggestion is: 
1. Get a light colored tee-shirt
2. Get cardboard or foil to go inside to keep the Sharpie from going through.
3. Write in large letters: BUDDY SYSTEM

I am doing this today! I have several tie dyed shirts from Crazy Native. They have given some shirts to this nonprofit. 
They make beautiful shirts with natural dyes.

Get a paper cup, rubber bands, sharpies and alcohol and make your own instantly. The alcohol makes the sharpies "smear" so they look cool. I am posting pictures today.


Don't want a t-shirt to wear? Make a poncho! Go to Poncho Power on Youtube and find the pattern. Don't want a poncho?
Go to Evangehats and find out how to make a hat. Or you can always make a sign similar to a racing sign that says, "Buddy System." 

Please donate to this cause. 
Please share this blog with other people.
The Kindle version of the work of fiction: Murder On the Silver Comet Trail supports this nonprofit!

Buddies build stepping stones!

Buddy System builds community!
I have many blogs. http://steppingstoneart.blogspot.com/2009_02_01_archive.html  What one needs for a class of mosaics is a bunch of Buddies from the Buddy System and then these things on this list:
Things to mosaic with stained glass:
1. Stained Glass,or  tile, plates, shells, rocks, etc.
2. caulk
3. grout
4. sealant
5. surface (stepping stone, table, kitchen, etc.)
6. gloves
7. eye protection
8. glass cutters
9. cutting board
10. design
11. rags
12. bucket
13. water
14. sponges
15. squeegee
16. plastic knives
17. paper plates for caulk
18. brush for sealant

If we can solve low grade infections then we as a society can solve the difficulties presented in using the Buddy System.--Charlotte Fairchild 1/25/2012 at 10:04am.

Silent Infection

Mr. Odone, Lorenzo Odone's father, inspired me to do research about a common infection women share, as well as horses. I wondered at the difference between horses and women with regards to success in giving birth to live offspring. Very little research exists for humans and a common infection, yeast. Much is known about horses and yeast. But perhaps more will be known for horses when humans are studied more. Below is the article I wrote after researching about yeast, women and infertility/miscarriage. Lorenzo died May 30, 2008. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,361148,00.html

Robert O. Young, PhD, believes that infection and all disease is a symptom of the pH scale of the blood being off kilter. I highly recommend his site www.phmiracleliving.com for his articles of health blogs because our bodies never become resistant to chlorophyll and alkaline water, but on the other hand, some anti-fungal drugs cause miscarriage and the body becomes resistant.

Charlotte Fairchild Many Infections are Silent (c) 2005

Many infections are silent, symptomless. An infection does not need to be sexually transmitted to be listed in the STI/STD category(CDC, 2004) or to have been found to cause infertility in horses (Google, 2004). Humans have not been studied as extensively? An example: horses infected with Candida from fescue and/or caterpillars become infertile. (Google, 2004) Common infections, as well as sexually transmitted infections might well disrupt hormones, and decrease fertility. The research for common infections in humans affecting FSH (Folicle Stimulating Hormone) has yet to be done (urinary tract infections, yeast infections, dental disease, colds, to name a few). If there is a relationship to fertility and common infections, one test will not close the door to treatment, as well as hope for many women to give birth to their genetic child. It may instead open the door to better health. Perhaps the pH Miracle and alkaline diets will change the milieu of sterility, stillbirth, infertility, miscarriage.

Most women who reach menopause will have high FSH levels. Follicle Stimulating Hormone comes from the pituitary in the brain, and is necessary for ovulation in women. Higher levels spell menopause and the end of ovulation. Some women have higher levels as soon as their 20s and other women have normal levels in their 40s. The women with higher levels find it is difficult or impossible to have their genetic children. Little research has been done directly for factors of FSH levels. So much has been written about the age factor, when perhaps there is more. (Hanson, 2003) Perhaps infection plays a role.

Four studies gave differing views of infection and FSH levels. HIV infected women had higher levels of FSH in one study. (Salmassi, 2001) Cattle had normal FSH levels, but still fewer and smaller follicles with a uterine bacterial infection. (Sheldon, 2002) (The FSH levels may have been different, but the effects were similar, because fertility factors decreased in each study.) FSH is related to viral replication time (Wang, S.W., 1995). “Our findings reveal that endotoxin interrupts the follicular phase of the cycle by interfering with several steps in the preovulatory chain of endocrine events.” (Karsch, 2001) ########

This is at Unity North, Marietta, Georgia, USA. I started working on a labyrinth in my back yard. This is a circle of mulch with bricks. Mine will be mint and I don't know what else. I could use sticks or rocks or leaves with the mint and many kinds of materials. What do you think? I wrote Fertile Prayers: Daily Fertile Prayers. Because of Jenny Ewing and because of Chandra Levy and so many women who disappear only to be found too late, and because there are so many miscarriages, I was moved to begin a labyrinth in Paulding County, Georgia. Does anyone else know of someone with a labyrinth in this county? The picture above is not going to be like the one I build. I am open to including help.

Crime can happen anywhere. This is why it is important to be mindful and aware. Use one ear bud not two. Ask friends and relatives to go with you when you go shopping. Think of the gas you can save, and the business you will bring companies. Just like the gum commercials, call it "double your fun."

Is it true there was a daytime rape in Hiram in a parking lot?

Please check out the Georgia Bureau of Investigations online about the crime in Paulding County. If you have any other questions, please ask the Hiram Police Department or the Paulding Sheriff's Dept.

How can you support the Buddy System?
