Some Excellent Home Remedies That Work

Specializes in LTC, CPR instructor, First aid instructor..

1.If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic! Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto! The blockage will be almost instantly removed.

2.Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.

3.Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by simply using the sink.

4.For high blood pressure sufferers: Just cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6.If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, and then you will be afraid to cough.

7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will forget about the toothache.

*Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are:

1.You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

2.And, be really nice to your family and friends, you never know when you might need them to empty your bedpan.

Have a wonderful day today, and a better day tomorrow.

Number 7 reminds me of the time back in college when my dh was about to give a speech in front of some 250 people. It was the first time in all his life that he'd done so, and to say he was nervous was the understatement of the decade. One of his classmates noted this, and when Bill was looking the other way, he stomped on Bill's foot, which of course made him madder than a wet cat.

"Now you're not nervous anymore," said the classmate. "NOW you're pissed off!" :chuckle
