Interesting info

If you usually read my blog, but don’t always go check out what’s new on the Homestead Front Porch, you might want to go read my entry there on Iodine and Its Uses.

After reading this article, I’m thinking that iodine is pretty cheap and we all ought to try and do a little spot check with the stuff to see if we’re deficient or not!

Why check your iodine levels?

Low iodine levels can zap your energy and make you feel tired, edgy and worn out. Low iodine levels can even prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep. Before you go to your doctor with complaints of tossing and turning all night, aches and pains, and just feeling "blah," you may want to perform this self-test.

Because the symptoms of an iodine deficiency are classically identical to so many other illnesses (like depression, stress, chronic fatigue, or fibromyalgia,) many doctors either misdiagnose it or miss it completely and tell you there is nothing wrong.


Check out my tunes

I just added a music player on my sidebar. Does it bother you all that it plays automatically? I could change the settings so that you could just push play if you want to hear the music. Let me know what you all think.

It was pretty easy to get it set up and I had fun picking the songs. I was even thinking I might check to see if they had some bluegrass tunes too. It just seems appropriate for a homestead site. 

Want songs for your blog? Just click on Project Playlist and follow the instructions there.

I wonder if Musketman could find some dulcimer music for his blog? Of course, it wouldn’t surprise me if he put a bunch of Weird Al Yankovic on there.

Let’s see who can I tag — MomtoAll, SouthoftheGnatLine, Boltbabe, CatherineAnn, Tia, and some of my favorite kid bloggers ~  Hannah, The King boys,and Brooke because I seem to monopolize the computer and no one else in my family blogs anymore…
