    Thanks barefoot golightly.
    "One thing that science has shown is that apple cider vinegar might help to balance blood sugar. Insulin responses have been shown to create excess belly fat. Therefore, if insulin and blood sugar are controlled, a person might lose weight.

    Fat might in fact be as much a matter of hormones (insulin) than lack of activity. Of course, more than likely they go hand in hand."vinegar

    Vinegar is a liquid produced from the fermentation of ethanol in a process that yields its key ingredient, acetic acid. Ninety percent of American Households buy vinegar.
    The 4 major uses are for salads, as cooking ingredients, pickling and home canning.

    Anyway, I just thought that everyone should know about the usefulness of vinegar other than for the 4 things mentioned above. I’ve put together 61 other things with pictures about everything else that you can do with vinegar.
    I’d personally suggest using high quality white and apple cider vinegar like Heinz’s when trying the below methods. (Example : A cup of Heinz Apple Cider has 34 calories, no fat, 1.4mg of iron, and 240mg of potassium)
    The difference between white and apple cider vinegar is that white vinegar is made from acetous fermentation of alcohol and apple cider vinegar is made from cider or apple must.

    2009.06.02 : It’s now 74 uses thanks to you!! Also, for people thinking to ingest or use apple cider vinegar internally or externally on your body, get the organic one with the ‘mother’."

    Today:

    Ray couldn't work, so I thought it would be a good time to finally get to Lowes and Walmart to return and buy some things.  I was tired of carrying the stuff around in the van.  I also had a bunch of boxes and paper that needed to go to the recycling.

    Jay had to pick up his mother's prescription at Walmart, so he went with me.  We got our business done at Lowes, and even went to three thrift shops, but didn't buy anything at any of them.  Claudia's prescription wasn't ready, so I took the van to get it serviced, but not at Walmart as I had a coupon for Jiffy Lube.  But they don't carry the Valvoline Max that I use, so I had to go back to Walmart anyway!

    After my dusty episode at Splendora,  the blowing out of the air filter, and resetting the computer, did stop the "check engine" light from coming back on.   But the air filter had a date written on it, and it was time to change it, so I bought a new one so that the service place could install it.
    Finally, we got home in the afternoon, the dogs were so glad to see me, and to go outside.  They had been very good, as usual.  Probably slept the whole time I was gone.

    I am sipping water with Apple Cider Vinegar in it, so I will see what that does to me today!

    Good sharing, yes, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body’s storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia’s University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels. Read more at:
