Wer and Wif

The word “man” may have roots in old Indo-European terms for “to think,” and the word man may have been meant to mean “one who thinks.” Some linguists disagree on these origins.
Before “man” was used, Old English used the words wer and wif to distinguish the sexes (wer being man, wif being woman). That’s why “werewolf” basically means “man wolf.” But the word “man” replaced wer around the late 13th century
Interestingly, up until about 1000 years ago, the word “man” was originally gender neutral, so that’s a recent development

  7. Gluten free or non GMO wheat rolls
  8. 8 strips of bacon
  9. 1 tbsp coconut oil
  10. 1 tsp of salt
  11. 1 tsp of pepper

Wrap hot dogs in bacon, place on a large cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for. Place onions in a saucepan on medium with 1 tbsp of water and a coconut oil cover with a lid and allow to sweat. Once tender remove the lid add salt, pepper and soy sauce. Check hot dogs to move them around. Tost rolls, spread mayo on the roll, add hot dog then cover with onions, tomato and ketchup.


Roasted Roots

  1. 1 large sweet potato cubed with skin on
  2. 3 medium parsnips peeled and cut an inch thick 
  3. 3 medium turnips cubed with skin on

In a large baking sheet add coconut oil. Please in a preheated 350 degree oven for five minutes. Remove with an oven mitt. Mix roots and onions with seasoning, rosemary and oil to coat. Place garlic in the center. Roast for ten minutes. Toss then place back in the oven for another ten minutes. Toss again and remove garlic. Place back in the oven. Give the garlic two to three minutes to cool. Squeeze garlic out or if not possible peel. Pull veggies out, toss around with garlic and place in oven for another five minutes.



For years I used the regular stuff. Shaving cream and a razor. No more! I exfoliate with brown sugar and meadowfoam seed oil daily to keep the skin healthy. Brown sugar also helps the hair grow less.

When I do shave I use conditioner not cream or oil. I tried coconut oil. It was painful! I love conditioner. I use Lush Retrtead. The razor lasts for months and such a little amount of conditioner is needed.,en_US,sc.html
