I used to use "Just For Men" hair color about every month. But when my hair started to thin, I realized it would be better to let it go white because that would make me seem less bald.

And besides, I'm a lazy cheapskate.

I tried dying my hair twice. I didn't like the strong chemicals. And i don't care about the wash-in hair dye. I am a short lady who needs to look older!

I get that! I’m short too and have dark hair. I’d love to have white hair

I USED to have dark hair. I’ll trade you. I’ll never understand why anyone want this color. Because of it even certain colors of clothing don’t look good on me. And where are MY hugs on my last two posts? I wish we could hug ourselves on here.

Since my hair is gray and white, I am wearing bright clothes. I get a lot of compliments on them.

I’ve been branching out to brighter colors. Mostly tie-dye though. I did buy a bright turquoise shirt with lacy sleeves and a hot pink number. They do get more compliments than all my black clothes! I think they brighten up my dark hair too.

I unfortunately don’t like any tea or coffee except chai, I drink just one cup in the morning I used to try and drink tea, but it never caught on. Coffee I never liked. I read that coffee drinkers have strong taste buds for bitter. Everybody I know drinks coffee except me. About half the people I know drink tea too. I don’t know anyone who drinks only tea. What does that say about me?

I use muellin tea when I have a cough. It actually breaks up the mucus. I get it at the bulk amish store a few miles from my farm. The owners wife is an MD & they are all into the natural & herbal cures . I drink a cup if coffee in the morning but I add hot cocoa & cinnamon & organic cream to it. In summer I put it over ice. Don't drink much else but ice water the rest of the time

I do like tea but consider it a cold weather drink. And it’s hot here most of the year. I could make iced but it’s more work. Each morning I have a cup of coffee, even if the weather is hot. I enjoy flavored coffees with whipped cream at times. Anyway I need that morning jolt especially if I don’t sleep well.

One cup is all I have. If I want a second it has to be before lunch or I’ll be up late, wired and awake. When younger caffeine didn’t affect me that much. I used to drink coffee as late as 9pm, with cake, as a teenager and still sleep like a log.

Mullein grows wild here, literally like weeds. Yet I've never tried it, despite having issues with sinuses.

It grows wild on my farm too though I haven't made it into tea, I usually buy it at the bulk food store near my farm. It sure is a beautiful plant

Which artificial sweetener is the safest choice?


I've tried to cut down on artificial sweeteners or water the drink down. I can't use much Stevia due to a metabolic disorder.

I haven’t tried some of the newer ones, to me they all tasted metallic and horrid. I don’t buy diet or low fat anything. Just watch my portions. If I had the money I’d eat organic no artificial anything. Unfortunately I do drink American soda, one can a day, but it’s loaded with artificial stuff and corn syrup.

Have you tried monk fruit sweetner? It is natural & 0 calorie.

I use turbinando & organic unprocessed sugar. I don't do anything artificial & very careful with foods that have any chemicals added. I mostly stick with organic or pure foods from my neighbor farms & dairy & bee keepers. Been so much healthier since making these life changes. Only soda I drink is crafted root beer & only about 1/3 of a bottle a day when I have it in the house
