Vaccines and Medical Learning Time

I have heard over the years that doctors do not study vaccines much in medical school. A few years ago, I tutored a doctor’s children and asked her what she thought about vaccines.  She became very defensive and told me that the polio vaccine has been very helpful in stopping polio.  I decided to not pursue the subject further with her.  This person did some investigating and has come up with these conclusions:

Their main idea is, “How many doctors have studied vaccines more than 2 hours?”  They say that out of 6,700 pages studied, 4 pages discuss vaccines.  Specialized doctors like OB/Gyns, get 1 1/2 pages of mostly the CDC vaccination schedule, while Pediatricians get a reference manual with 1 page of vaccine explanations and mostly the CDC vaccine schedule with 4 pages of warnings. Worth watching for the 3+ minutes.  Well done.

Last Day of Summer Baked Sunday Pancake

On Sunday mornings, I typically keep breakfast and meals simple.  A dear friend of mine from college gave me this recipe.  She went back to culinary school and cooks delicious recipes! Years ago, while in middle school, a friend of mine from swim team shared a similar recipe like this one for Mother’s Day.  I baked something like this when I was 13 for my mother’s breakfast to celebrate her day.

3 Tbsp. butter

3 large eggs

3/4 cups milk

1/2- 1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup flour

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/8 tsp. Himalayan salt

*We use organic whenever possible

Directions:  Melt the butter in a 10 inch oven proof frying pan over low heat.  Remove from heat.  In a large bowl beat the eggs until white and fluffy.  Beat in milk, blend in flour, vanilla, sugar, and salt.  I use a whisk in a stainless mixing bowl.  Pour batter in prepared pan and bake at 425 degrees F until lightly browned about 18-20 minutes.  The pancake will be puffy.  When cooled it will deflate, but will have a custard like texture in the middle.  We topped ours with fresh organic strawberries and blueberries with home made lemon curd using Allrecipes’ recipe. *At this time of year we will use thawed frozen fruit.end-of-summer-002

Fall Amish Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll

We have tried many cinnamon roll recipes over the years.  This exceeds them all in our opinion.  Our garden pumpkins are harvested and being enjoyed in recipes like these.

Willow Run Dairy Amish Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Recipe (slightly modified)

3-4 cups flour *we use Amish Harvest Blend flour

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. Ceylon cinnamon

1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp. ginger

2/3 cups milk *we use raw

1/4 cup butter *we use an imported Italian GMO free

2 Tbsp. yeast

1 cup cooked pumpkin

1/8 cup honey *we use raw

2 eggs *we use pastured, organic eggs


2/3 cup brown sugar *we use organic

1 Tbsp. cinnamon

4 oz. softened cream cheese

1/4 cup soft butter

1/2 cup honey

1 tsp. vanilla


1 cup powdered sugar *we use organic

4 oz. softened cream cheese *we use organic

1 tsp. vanilla

Melt the butter, then add the milk until mixture is warm, but not too hot ( which is over 110 degrees F).  Add yeast and let bloom for about 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, beat the pumpkin, honey, salt, and eggs together.  Add the yeast mixture and the spices.  Gradually add the flour beating well after adding about 1 cup at a time.  Dough will be soft.  Let rise one hour or longer.  Roll out on a floured surface into a large  rectangle.  (I make mine as large as my standard size cutting board.)  Sprinkle with filling.  Roll up and cut into 1 inch slices.  Place into a well buttered 9 x 13 inch baking dish.  Let rise another hour or so.  Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees F.  Mix frosting and slather on when rolls have cooled.  This recipe was relatively simple and our neighbor enjoyed this fall dessert with us.  She enjoyed it as much as us.

Reexamine Public Education

“I think parents need to be the final and ultimate arbiter of what their children learn, where they learn, and how.”—Marco Rubio

“Proclaiming as their sole guideline for civil law the myth of neutrality and the myth of political pluralism, Christian leaders today find it impossible to identify the public schools for what they are: anti-Christian by confession and financing. Leaders do not acknowledge this: the only biblically valid solution to the evils of tax-funded education is the abolition of tax-funded education. From the year 1642, when the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony legislated local tax funding for local schools, Christian educational reformers have had as their primary educational goal the preservation of the public schools. “ Dr. Gary North

After decades of experience of working in the public school educational system, we have concluded that the typical public school student has missed a myriad of valuable informative topics. Today, students learn a lot of information with missing substantive value. Shortly after entering this Prussian modeled institution, joy for learning and natural curiosity for creation are quickly smothered. Recent studies are proving that sitting in a chair for 6 hours a day is not beneficial health-wise. After years of value based education, bullying continues on playgrounds and in the hallways. The moral decline of our society can be attributed to families’ neglect of a good education for their children. It is the parent’s responsibility to remain actively engaged in their children’s learning. Year after year, these young minds are fed many false presuppositions. For example, early education models in our country were centered around the family with the church enabling children to understand who the creator and king of the universe was. They learned multiple languages, reading from the Bible, composed writing that was meaningful, and valued hard, good work. Today, classrooms are filled with the philosophy that the government will take care of everyone’s needs and people are entitled to that help. The constitutional philosophy of working hard, persevering, and being individually responsible for one’s life and decisions are ideas of the past.

These days students are taught to look to government instead of Christ for life’s answers and needs. Problems like gum chewing and too much talking in class have morphed into drug abuse, sex abuse, loss of gender identity, and mass confusion. By making their own standards and turning from God’s standards, order has turned into chaos. Details about history are skewed in the government’s favor. In fact, students don’t learn much real history at all any more in the public school. The philosophical work ethic is based based on humanism instead of truth. The science curriculum is founded on the emptiness of evolution instead of the fullness of God’s creation. Grammar is taught without context. Language and literature are full of fluffy and meaningless fiction filled stories. Government is taught to be god. To rehabilitate this “empty set of education” we need to supply what is missing: Truth. History should be honestly taught in light of Christ’s purposes. The philosophy of work should be based on biblical principles. Science should be taught with the understanding that God is the creator and designer of all things, including knowledge. (Anything true taught in the public school comes from God). Math programs exclude logic and are taught without a growing foundation of number patterns and methods of practical applications to the real world. Now with Common Core, math has become even more illogical and difficult to understand, when it really is very understandable when taught with a foundation of logic like in the Saxon Math program. Instead of government usurping God’s authority, it is meant to be a servant of God (Romans 13). To satisfy these required topics in the present age education must be done with close parental monitoring in preferably a home guided education. It is worth the effort and is the student’s only hope. Corrupted minds need to be renewed with truth.

An Injunction for SB277     An injunction’s purpose is to restore the rights back to those who have been violated.  In this case, it is the rights of parents and families to have informed consent as to whether or not vaccinate their child with a pharmaceutical drug.  Currently, SB277 mandates that all children entering public and private education must be vaccinated according to the California’s vaccination schedule while ignoring the individuality of each person and the parents’ authority over the family.  “Follow the money” to the pockets of politicians and pharmaceutical companies.

“Yes, ’n’ how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see?
Yes, ’n’ how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, ’n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?”  Bob Dylan, Blow’in in the Wind

Children must be protected.  Who doesn’t know someone who hasn’t been harmed by vaccines?  My neighborhood is full of injured children.  Let’s make the public schools follow through with their motto, “Children first”.  Parents have the constitutional right to informed consent, as well as, the God given right to protect their children.

“Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet 23 and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” 24 And he went with him.” (Mark 5:23-24)

Education and Freedom Philosophy

It’s that time of year again!  School, a place where ideas are passed on to the next generation.  Parents, who have the authority over their children, willingly send their children to public school institutions where a few government employees determine the  curricula for about 1.3 million students.  All must conform to the system even if every person is individually different.  Ron Paul published a book a few years ago titled, The School Revolution.  This book is easy to read and well worth your time if you are looking for educational alternatives.

Ron Paul believes that “the most meaningful way to improve the world is to free up the creativity of individuals” in contrast to conformity and centralization of public education.  He further states that self government is the foundation of liberty.  He believes that the bottom line of leadership is self government and self mobilization.  He additionally believes that self improvement and discipline, as well as, self government will transform culture.  His philosophy for education is that self government must be its foundation and that students should be disciplined and motivated “to learn the techniques of research, analysis, writing, and public speaking.”  Education should be an enjoyable process where each child is addressed as an individual and not as a clone.  Home education enables this to happen.  Your child will be “happy and normal”.

Inexpensive Summer Water Fun

We purchased this spray bottle at the 99 Cents Only Store.  Over the years, we have purchased water blasters, spray guns, and other water toys.  This has been the most used and enjoyed.  It has endured months of use without breaking.  This could be used at a birthday party or any party where children may decorate with Sharpie’s or other craft items with adult supervision.  Have fun!plumria 002
