Germany as a teenager: the thong

I lived in Augsburg, Germany…The family I stayed with had two sisters, models…They took me to a marketplace & introduced me to thong underwear…I had huge muscular thighs from downhill skiing & my regular underwear was always cutting up the top of my legs…This was when I was a teenager…I have been wearing thong underwear since then, maybe 30 years…I stopped getting those red rings at the top of my thighs, I stopped getting wedgies when I walked, & most noticeably, I never had a yeast infection again…I don’t wear sexy thongs, I wear durable, comfortable, well built, sensible thongs…Men seem to get jock itch alot- yeast infections too- stds…I wonder if men would rather not have disease in exchange for wearing thong underwear? Not sure, but hope some will try it…Rafael Nadal, the tennis player could use a thong- if only to get him to get his fingers out of his butt wedgie on the court…

see the pink stretchy bandage that runs from the wire at back, along the edges, & down around the bottom? That protects the painting from the floor, which unfortunately might meet your painting during transport, or at a gallery- easily removed & put back on, it protects without the burden of framing...

Art related (framing): Had a moment of clarity when someone referred to the stretcher bars as the frame(realized a redundancy)…My oils look caged & more trite with a frame, plus it makes them heavy for female curators, more expensive to collectors, & the choice is also switched out when they buy, for another frame for some reason…Also don’t like heavy framed works dropping on my cats…Frame requires bigger holes & more elaborate hooks in wall…One chip on a frame & the customer asks for a radical discount…Suffice it to say I am not a fan of framing…Don’t even talk about the extra trees needed for them…Regarding delicate works, when I worked with a framer from Korea, they stored their delicates loosely between sheets of thin papers, & didn’t frame anything unless a customer had selected the work & was buying a frame on the spot…As opposed to framing everything & getting stuck with a lot of frames & works that customers hadn’t chosen…Glass became a sort of no-no when juried competitions refused to accept pieces under glass because of breakage issues…Plexiglass became the norm here at least…Plexiglass is lighter & has some warmth to it if you are transporting in a cold climate- it does protect nicely, with a drop frame-I have some older watercolours on architect drawing board with oil pastel that way- but pricey & you have to be careful about scratches on plexi…I have found the main thing for oils on stretched canvas is protecting the bottom of them if they ever touch a floor in transport or a gallery- I use a stretch coloured bandage, stretched from the wire down around to cover the side & bottom edges & corners- the stuff you use to bandage an animal’s leg…This is easily removed or put back on after display…Any kind of stretchy bandage will work though to protect the bottom from floor dust & bumping, temporarily…Sari ”

Vinegar: http://odyb.net/food-cooking/62-little-known-uses-of-vinegar/ The link talks about ways to use vinegar, worth looking at! I am convinced that the lungs are the organ involved or compromised specifically in Down’s Syndrome in particular, & vinegar, specifically Apple Cider Vinegar is known to increase lung power…I see a carbon buildup in the lungs of Down’s Syndrome sufferers, & the Apple Cider Vinegar should be able to cleanse that specific area well- take a teaspoon ACV daily raw, for best results (or hide it in something else if you must)…

http://www.revivalanimal.com/Fel-O-Taurine.html?feed=NexTag&gdftrk=gdfV2457_a_7c543_a_7c2273_a_7c2371 Fel-O-Taurine is taurine powder for cats…Specifically addresses HCM issues…Essentially taurine strengthens a weak heart muscle that was perhaps born weaker due to overbreeding…The same thing occurs in humans under various names like MVP mitral valve prolapse or whatever, essentially people from big families may all share this same weaker heart problem…Taurine strengthens that all right up…I’ve been sharing my cats’ Taurine powder, merely because it was around for them & I wanted to check what it did before I gave it to them…Makes me purr too! (I see audible purring in a cat as a sign of better heart health)…If you are human & have heart troubles, be sure to add Taurine powder to your diet daily! It really makes one feel great! (Gggggrrreatt, like Tony the Tiger would say!)(you might want to get human taurine powder-but the cat stuff works in a pinch)…

Easier than supplements, copal amber beads contain B12 & you can just give the person a necklace or bracelet to wear all the time…The B12 reverse osmotes through the skin…You can buy them on etsy.com from various craftspeople for a song…Get the beads from Lithuania or Riga…Cheaper & fresher…or you can also find them on Ebay…

About GroveCanada

Artist Statement: I like to push...Push the fold...Innovate...Figure out how to do something then figure out how to do it even better...I get bored once I accomplish something...I can’t seem to make multiples...Once it is done, it is done ; I am not going to make another one...This can hurt profitability...But I feel the paradigm of repetitive production is obsolete...I see a future where pure intellectual innovation will be rewarded without the need to commercialize it somehow...I wonder about the Star Trek idea of a new culture where money is not the driving force...I live that future already... Bio: Sari is an optimist by nature, someone who always sees the sunny side of things, even if there is no sunny side really...She grew up with two wonderful parents & a great brother...Later she married the very best guy in the world, another artist named Joseph Grove...She likes art because it is for her a happy place to be...A place where joy can reside...So she decided to make art herself because that was the nicest thing she thought she could do for people’s lives...I’d tell you more about angst or strife or misery or struggling, but really, that was not the case...But perhaps, because I am Sari ; I am writing this, my perception is warped by my extreme positivity...But, to tell you the truth, life has been good... p.s.You can read more about my credentials on my main website at http://www.grovecanada.ca ...But I have left a few things out, credential-wise... My feeling is:"By their fruits, ye shall know them" which is from the New Testament, Book of Mathew(7, 16-20)... So read my books ; see if the fruit tastes good to you...I feel those are better credentials than telling you something on a resume... p.p.s. I am a Christian...Whatever that word means to you...
