Apple Cider Vinegar

I have been drinking Apple Cider Vinegar for the past week. I bought the bottle to treat a wart I discovered on my hand. Instead of leaving the bottle in the cabinet like I usually do until I throw it away, I decided to start adding it to my daily diet. I’m not using it for any particular ailment, I just wanted to see what kind of improvements I would possibly discover.

So as expected, the wart has started to die off and scabbed up. I discuss how to treat warts here. As far as any other changes I’ve noticed, There have been a few. I noticed that I have much more energy during the day. I don’t feel the need for coffee in the morning anymore. I will drink it in the afternoon now with a light snack.

My wife noticed my skin looked more radiant and rejuvenated. There are many benefits to using ACV on the skin topically, but not much mentioned about when drinking so that is an unexpected observation.

I started adding ACV to my morning cocktail. It does not taste the greatest, but it is tolerable, especially diluted.

There are many potential benefits to drinking ACV. If you feel like you can benefit, give it a try!!

House Plants

My wife has never been a fan of house plants. She is afraid that the plants will attract bugs into the house. I saw a post on Instagram of a graphic with common house plants and their benefits. I took interest and did some more research and narrowed it down to 2 plants that I wanted. With that, I went on a quest to find them. These are what I ended up getting.


The Sansevieria, also known as a Snake Plant or Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, is a popular house plant. While the leaves are stiff and do not flower like other soft plants, they have a modern look to them and are very easy to maintain. They require little water and do not require full sunlight like other plants.

The benefit of having this plant in the house is that it absorbs toxins out of the air such as formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, benzene and xylene. While most other plants release carbon dioxide at night, this plant absorbs carbon dioxide through it’s leaves and produces oxygen. It makes for an ideal plant in the bedroom.

While this plant may be great for humans, be careful if you have pets in the house. These plants may be toxic to them if they are consumed. So keep an eye on them!

Aloe Plant

We all know the benefits of aloe with regards to skincare and aiding in the relief of sunburn. However, it is another plant that helps purify the air. Benzene, which is found in chemical cleaners and paint, is one chemical it helps remove from the air. It makes for a great plant to leave on the kitchen window as it needs sunlight to grow.

The aloe plant is another that does not require much maintenance. It is related to the cactus plant so it does not require much water. Allowing the soil to dry completely before watering is all that is required.

If you do happen to cut or burn yourself, you can cut off a piece of this plant and use to gel to help with treatment. Another added bonus of having this plant around.

As with other plants, please be careful if you have pets. Aloe can be poisonous to them if consumed.

I used to think that having plants in a house was more for visual appeal than anything else. After reading about the health benefits they provide for us, I finally convinced my wife to get some in the house. There are several other plants out there that make great house plants. I will look to add another 2 or 3 in the near future.

T-Shirt Fun

Been pretty tired from working whole days. Didn’t want to over work myself so I decided to have some fun and give designing another T-shirt a go.

We all have days where customers or people in general give us problems and make big deals out of small things. I find it best to always be kind to these people and not worry too much. Usually it keeps interactions from escalating any more than it needs to be.

These are the shirts I came up with from that inspiration.

You can find this shirt here:
