Hello my dazzling dabbers!

 

Just because summer is almost over doesn't mean you can let those tootsies go.

Keep getting those pedicures. You wouldn't want to cut your partner in bed would you?

Let's face it, with all the gambling we're doing there's just not a lot of time for anything else. Here are some natural ways to keep those feet looking gorgeous in between pedicures courtesy of iloveindia.com.

 

Natural Foot Care

 

Feet Soak

Supplies Needed

1 cup Lemon Juice

¼ tsp Cinnamon Powder

2 tbsp Olive Oil

¼ cup Milk

Water

Tub

 

Instructions

Fill a tub with warm water and put the lemon juice, cinnamon powder, olive oil and milk in it. Mix well.

Put your feet in the tub and let them soak in the water for 10-15 minutes.

Now, wash your feet with a mild soap, dry them with a towel and apply a foot care cream.

 

Foot Lotion

 

Supplies Needed

1 tbsp Almond Oil

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp Wheat Germ Oil

12 drops Eucalyptus Essential/Fragrance Oil

Bottle (dark-colored)

 

Instructions

Take a dark colored bottle and put almond oil, olive oil, wheat germ oil and eucalyptus oil in it.

Shake the bottle shake extremely well and store in a cool, dry place.

To use the lotion, just rub it into your feet and heels, after you have cleaned and dried them.

 

So jump silky feet first into Silk Bingo

Hello Bingo Babes!!!

 

Stress can be a killer. Life happens right! So, after a nail biting game of BINGO let the power of massage relax you. Even these two enjoy a good massage. It can be great for too.

The Benefits Of Massage

What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage or bodywork treatments? Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can:

Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.

Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.

Ease medication dependence.

Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.

Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.

Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.

Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.

Increase joint flexibility.

Lessen depression and anxiety.

Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.

Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.

Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.

Reduce spasms and cramping.

Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.

Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.

Relieve migraine pain.

 

Return the favor and treat your massager to a game of BINGO at Bingo MagiX for all the magic they work!

 

Have a great week!

I love the pic Froggy.  I've never had a massage either and I know I would more than likely drop off into a wonderful dozy snooze.  Sounds wonderful.

Hi Bingo Babes!

 

We don't want to be sneezing all over our bingo cards now do we? Take some precautions this year to avoid the flu and spreading it around the bingo halls. Most importantly wash your hands. I have seen people do the two second cold water sprinkle. That is not going to kill those germs!

sneeze-girl.gif

 

Here's what The Center For Disease Control has to say:

 

Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. In 2009–2010, a new and very different flu virus (called 2009 H1N1) spread worldwide causing the first flu pandemic in more than 40 years. Flu is unpredictable, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expects the 2009 H1N1 virus to spread this upcoming season along with other seasonal flu viruses.

 

CDC urges you to take the following actions to protect yourself and others from influenza (the flu):

 

Take time to get a flu vaccine.

 

Take everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs.

 

Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them.

 

Stay feeling Bingo Fabulous this fall and winter!

 

Have a healthy week!

Hello My Bouncing Bingo Balls!

 

Did you know that laughter is actually good for you? I laugh really hard at something almost everyday. It doesn't take much to make me laugh but it feels great! You know the kind of laugh that makes the tears start streaming?

 

th_israel-125year-old-man-laughing.jpg

 

helpguide.org says laughter is good for your health and here's why:

 

Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.

 

Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.

 

Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.

 

Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

 

I suggest you take your medicine regularly because everyone deserves a little Bingo Fun!

 

Have a great week!

Hello My Little Troll Dolls!

 

This week we are going to get rid of those pesky razor bumps. Ouch! I 've got a few ways to prevent them comin' right up.

 

Untitled-12.jpg

 

Courtesy of getridofthings.com

 

First of all, don’t shave every day if you suffer from regular razor bumps.

 

Softening your hair with warm water will help you get a better shave and get rid of razor bumps.

 

Always apply shaving cream (a good one) to the skin before shaving and allow the shaving cream to sit on your face for a couple of minutes before shaving to help it soften the skin and hair.

 

Rinse your shaving razor with rubbing alcohol before and after every use, and change the blade at least once a week to get rid of razor bumps.

 

If you’re still getting razor bumps, don’t pick or squeeze the bumps, and stop rubbing your skin if you want to get rid of razor bumps.

 

Whew! Now that that's all sorted out, let's grab our Bingo Card and play some bingo!

 

Have a great week!

That baby boy is too cute!! Thanks froggy for all the great tips you put together every week for us. Some have been very useful for me.

 

Now for the opposite rule, wonder what tips there are for the guys who want to grow a beard and don't shave. My good friend who is smoking hot in a beard just had to shave it off cuz it itched too much.

 

Any suggestions?

How about a conditioner or a moisturiser to cure that itchy beard.  Apparently the itchyness only lasts a week - not that I have a personal knowledge of this cos I've never had a beard (and hope that I never will!).

 

Just a thought.

I love all these tips! Yeah.. i think Blues tips would help, the problem with beards is the skin is dry underneath, when i grow my beard out i use a little bit of light babyoil, just a little bit now.. you don't want people following the drips lol.. j/k'n .. i did eventually shave my beard off, it didn't look right on me.. i prefer just a slight moostash..

Hello Bingo Beez!

 

If for some ungodly reason your internet is down and bingo is inaccessible, what do you do?

I am about to solve all your problems. Oh yes! Take this list and print it out. Keep it hidden under your mattress and refer to it when you don't know what to do with yourself.

 

polls_bored_0617_710279_poll_xlarge.jpg

 

THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

 

Blink wildly and then close your eyes really tight for an interesting light show

(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)

See a variety of blobs, stars and flashes. Try to make out shapes and see if your subconscious is trying to send you a message (perhaps that funny shape is saying, 'send all your money to urban75.com'?)

 

See how long you can hold a note

(Amusement Potential: 4-20 minutes)

Not that much fun, but it sure passes the time. Play with a friend, or try to beat your own personal best. Inhale deeply and then try and make a noise for as long as you can. Earn extra points for making your partner laugh or ending on an amusing note.

 

Try to not think about penguins

(Amusement Potential: 1-5 minutes)

This is especially hard, because by trying too much, you remember what you were trying to avoid thinking of. If you try too little, you end up thinking about penguins anyway.

 

Use your secret mind power

(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)

Pick a passing by and try to use your mind power to command them do something, like drop their bag or knock into someone. The law of averages dictates that sooner or later one of your mind commands will come true, so you can convince yourself that you really have super human powers and waste even more time trying them out.

 

Pretend you're a robot

(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)

Walk down the street with mechanical movements, adding 'zzzzzt' sounds with each motion. Pretending to have a motor broken in, say, your left hand can add at least 30 seconds more entertainment.

 

Rate passers by

(Amusement Potential: 10-15 minutes)

Secretly award passers by marks out of ten as you go along, offering (unsaid) expert criticism over their clothing, hairstyle and footwear choices.

 

Repeat the same word over and over until it loses its meaning

(Amusement Potential: 1-3 minutes)

Pick a random word out of a magazine and say it aloud to yourself until it becomes a meaningless set of noises.

 

Pretend to be a car

(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)

Make appropriate revving noises in your head as you walk along and add a racing commentary as you pass strangers in the street. Use blinking eyes as indicators for extra authenticity.

 

Make Star Trek door noises

(Amusement Potential: 1-2 minutes)

Stand by an electric door to a bank or something and make that silly "Scccccccchwop" sound heard whenever people popped on to the bridge to hang with Captain Kirk.

 

Look at something for awhile, shut eyes, study after image

(Amusement Potential: 2-5 minutes)

Another great time waster. It takes about 30 seconds of staring to create an after image, and the image is then viewable for about the same length of time. Fun to combine this one with pushing on your eyes.

 

Get yourself as nauseated as possible

(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)

Best achieved by looking straight up and spinning around. Try to be so dizzy you can't even stand up. This is also entertaining due to the "makes boredom seem a lot better" effect (see "Hurt Yourself").

 

Invent a weird twitch

(Amusement Potential: 5-10 minutes)

Adopt a bizarre twitch (e.g. flicking your head irregularly, twitching with eye or busting out sporadic cough noises) and try it out when you go shopping.

 

Make a low buzzing noise

(Amusement Potential: 15-30 minutes)

Hours of fun in libraries! Keeping a totally straight face and looking nonchalant, make a low pitch humming/buzzing noise and see who reacts.

 

Have a fun filled week!!!

You know I'm looking out for you Gurrrl!

Well lips, if you've been er...um.........shall I say riding a little rough, check this out.

 

How to Soothe Rug Burn

 

Frictions from carpet against skin causes friction burns. As skin gets pushed along the rug, the fibers of the rug remove layers of skin, exposing sensitive skin beneath. This can occur anywhere on the body that makes contact with the rug, but is common on the large joints (elbows and knees, for example). Rug burns aren't usually serious, but they can be quite painful. If enough skin is rubbed off, the area can scab. Treat rug burn as a minor burn or abrasion, because that is essentially what it is (and why it stings so much).

 

1. Gently wash the rug burned area with cool water. If the skin is broken, use an antibacterial soap to cleanse it. If it is very painful, you may apply ice to it; wrap the ice in a washcloth or towel first so you don't damage your skin.

 

2. Pat the skin dry with a soft cloth. Apply a topical analgesic to the area (use a triple antibiotic ointment with a pain reliever included, if skin is broken). This will temporarily relieve the burning sensation.

 

3. Keep the skin cool. Wear breathable, soft fabrics, if the rug burn is on an area (such as the knees) you must cover with clothing during cool weather. Apply more analgesic as frequently as the label indicates; otherwise let the burn remain exposed to air (not bandaged), clean and dry.

Hey Bingo Babes!

 

Here are some tips to sort cut your holiday cooking. Anything I can do to give you more bingo time!

Kitchen_Cook_Burn_Retro.gif

 

1 WEEK BEFORE

 

-- Cook ahead: Soup can be made up to a week ahead and frozen if you follow a few guidelines. Add pasta, rice and other grains just before serving to avoid sogginess. Don't stir in milk or cream until dinnertime: if you freeze, they'll separate and curdle.

 

-- Money Saver! Get prepping: Toast your own croutons for stuffing and salads instead of spending on them in the store. When they've cooled completely, freeze in an airtight plastic bag until ready to use. Firm cheeses like cheddar and Parmesan also freeze nicely, so grate them now and save time later.

 

3 DAYS BEFORE

 

Money Saver! Shop for perishables, like fresh produce and dairy products: Trying to make room for incoming groceries may tempt you to throw out space hogs like bottles of juice, soda, beer and wine -- but you shouldn't have to buy them again. Put beverages in a cooler to save them for later use.

Start brining your bird: If you bought a fresh turkey or ham, submerge the meat in a brine solution and refrigerate for 24 hours. Drain, pat dry and return the turkey to the fridge until roasting time.

 

1 DAY BEFORE

Chop hard veggies like carrots, celery and turnips. Refrigerate them in airtight plastic bags. Prepare aromatic onions and garlic just before cooking because their flavors will dissipate quickly.

Get organized: Prepare cocktail garnishes. Squeeze lemon juice, peel garlic and wash herbs. Organize and label serving dishes; transfer them to a tagging area for easy plating at mealtime.

 

THE BIG DAY

 

Bake fresh: For prime freshness, bake biscuits, rolls, and par-baked bread today; their textures can change even overnight.

Roast veggies: Roasted vegetables like brussels sprouts, potatoes, and parsnips lose their crispness once they're refrigerated. Cook them today.

 

I hope these time savers will free you up enough to enjoy your holiday gala....Bingo Gala that is!
