Have You Ever Seen a Sunburned Goat?

Neither have I  

That's why I decided to make Aloha Goat Milk Organic Sunscreen!! 

While vacationing in Hawaii we went to a wildlife preserve called Hanauma Bay.  At the marine store they were asking people to trade in their harmful sunscreen for this expensive brand that is lacking oxybenzone and octinoxate. 

You see Hanauma Bay is a special place for me. 
 My husband proposed to me there many eons ago.  
I went back there again today and I was shocked.  The coral was not as beautiful as it was 39 years ago (oops I let the date slip).  It was quite sad to see the deterioration.  

My sister, Erna
sent me some helpful information: A 2015 study found that up to 14,000 tons of sunscreen enter the ocean every year, causing harm. “The legislature finds that two chemicals contained in many sunscreens, oxybenzone and octinoxate, have significant harmful impacts on Hawaii’s marine environment and residing ecosystems, including coral reefs that protect Hawaii’s shoreline,” the bill reads. “Oxybenzone and octinoxate cause mortality in developing coral; increase coral bleaching that indicates extreme stress, even at temperatures below 87.8 degrees Fahrenheit; and cause genetic damage to coral and other marine organisms.”

Now I don't know about you but if its not good for the coral and marine life how can it be good for me?  

So I had a talk with the goats and they all agreed to help me out.  We got together and devised a plan to save the coral reefs and keep our skin healthy.  I only feed my goats organic goat food and their pasture and hay is also pesticide free.  So you can't find a more pure bunch of goats anywhere around.  

Here is some sunscreen they sell in the marine store.   
Notice the price for 6 oz. $15.99 Wow!  That is enough to make a Dutch woman crawl into a lava tube!!  My goats and I sell our 8 oz. bottle of SPF 25 sunscreen for $11.00  What a bargain and it is all organic and healthy for your skin and the environment. 

Here is what we put in our sunscreen:  organic goat milk, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, apricot oil, pumpkin seed oil, shea butter, stearic acid, emulsifying wax, essential oils, permaben (vitamin C and E), non-nano zinc oxide.  When you put it on it makes your skin a bit white for a few seconds.  Those of us who remember sunscreen before Oxybenzone and octinoxate know that this is how all our sunscreen used to look. You don't need much. 
Please PM me or post a comment below if you want to find out more about this amazing product or try it for yourself.  Save the planet.  Save your skin and your children's skin.  Make a goat smile.

Mosquito Madness

One spring day I was aimlessly cleaning out the goat water buckets.  As I peered down into the water bucket there were odd looking red and brown squiggly things in the water.  I could hardly see them.  

Oh oh time to change the water!

Little did I realize at the time was that these tiny larvae would be the big stars at the next science lab.  
I recruited my daughter-in-law Megan Image may contain: one or more people, sky, ocean, sunglasses, cloud, beard, outdoor and water who is an expert with a microscope and pesky things (because she is married to our son Nathan) to help me look at them up close and personal.                                                                    (algae)       
These are some of the first photo's we took with my Amscope Microscope

Then we recorded some videos of them as we dived into observing the beauty of these pesky little creatures.
Next, we looked at them with another microscope.  This is a microscope I have my eye on but have not made the financial plunge just yet...  It is a Celestron USB microscope.                                         
                                          Deluxe Handheld Digital Microscope
You can find these handy little gems on Amazon for as low as $20!   I use them quite frequently in the lab.

One little kindergarten student who came to the class with her school accidentally broke her mosquito larvae in half!  Horrors!!  She was almost in tears until I reminded her that

We swat adult mosquitoes all the time!  OK???

Mosquitoes have an interesting life cycle.  This video explains it quite succinctly.

We took lots more photos during the class.  Click here to see them all.

Operation Restored Warrior

What an amazing weekend we had in Colorado for the Operation Restored Warrior annual reunion.  

This is Mel and I with Paul Lavelle, founder of ORW

Mel and I met with Shannon.  Shannon was recently featured on CBN. He is a former navy seal who attended ORW and now facilitates. This is Mel and Shannon with Shannon’s service dog Pig Bear. 

Our dear friend Jim 
happened to be there during the filming.  
There were about 170 veterans and their wives represented at the reunion. Mike Lindell from ‘“My Pillow” is a former attendee and spoke last night. Mike Lindell also went through the ORW program and bears the ring. 

This is Mel with David Shannahan 

of the  Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center.  https://www.marycrowley.org/

We met so many amazing veterans and new friends.

Billy Kay and Jim attended the reunion with us!!!

If you know of a veteran who needs healing and restoration please contact us or check this out.  http://operationrestoredwarrior.org/

Come and join us on Veteran's Day for "Walk it Out" .

What fun we had.  I can’t wait till next year.  :)
