Add Water to your Diet and live longer!

Our good friend Bernard Dick sent us this important document


   75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. 
  (Likely applies to half the world population) 

#2.     In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak 
 that it is mistaken for hunger. 

#3.    Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as 3%. 

  One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs 
    for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of 
Washington study. 

#5.     Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue. 

#6.    Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of 
      water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain 
 for up to 80% of sufferers. 

#7.    A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term 
      memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on 
 the computer screen or on a printed page. 

#8..   Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of 
    colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast 
 cancer by 79%., and one is 50% less likely to develop 
 bladder cancer. Are you drinking the amount of water 
 you should drink every day? 

   In many states the highway patrol carries 
      two gallons of Coke in the trunk to remove blood from 
 the highway after a car accident. 

     You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke 
 and it will be gone in two days. 
    To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the 
    toilet bowl and let the ‘real thing’ sit for one hour, 
 then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes 
 stains from vitreous china.. 

   To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: 
      Rub the bumper with a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds 
 Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola. 

   To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour 
     a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble 
 away the corrosion. 

  To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola 
 to the rusted bolt for several minutes. 

   To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into 
  the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. 
 Thirty minutes before ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix 
 with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy. 

  To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of Coke 
  into the load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run 
 through a regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen 
 grease stains. It will also clean road haze from your 
     the active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. 
 It will dissolve a nail in about four days. Phosphoric 
 acid also leaches calcium from bones and is a major 
 contributor to the rising increase of osteoporosis. 
   To carry Coca-Cola syrup! (the concentrate) the 
 commercial trucks must use a hazardous Material place 
 cards reserved for highly corrosive materials. 
   The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean 
 engines of the trucks for about 20 years!

Shell Knob Community Services Awards Will Recognize Individuals

By Paula Andersen

The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce is asking the community to nominate someone who has dedicated themselves to the betterment of the area.  Each year the Chamber presents two awards to dedicated volunteers who are the Business person of the Year and Community Service Award.  If you have someone in mind who fits this description visit the chamber website and download a nomination form.  Anyone can make a nomination you do not have to be a Chamber member.  Complete the form and return it to the Chamber office by February 12.  The awards are always presented at the Chamber’s Annual meeting in March.



Shell Knob First Responders Serve Great Chili and the Community Responds


Saturday’s chilly day did not discourage the community’s turnout to the First Responders chili and soup fundraiser.  Becky Davidson, a member of the Shell Knob First Responders, and cashier for the day said that over 500 tickets were sold for this important community event.  The event included numerous donated items that were raffled off and some of the best desserts in the county were sold for a dollar.  It was a long day for the men and women volunteers who started work early and were selling hot bowls of chili from 11 am to 7 pm. 

The First Responders group was started in 1991 in Shell Knob.  They have been making significant contributions in time and physical effort by helping residents deal with critical moments and saving lives for almost twenty years. They work as a team, one is a scribe and another is trained as an emergency medical person.  Many times they are the first team on the site of an accident or critical incident.  They are volunteers and work hours without pay or recognition.

Cassville attorney Cordelia F. Herrin who is running for Barry County Associate Judge, Division 2, on the Republican ticket dropped by and participated in this event. She is running for the position held by Judge Carr Woods who plans on retiring in November of 2010.  Herrin’s husband of fifteen years is local veterinarian Dr. Brent Herrin.  The First Responders would like to thank everyone for joining them for Chili fest.

On the Bayou Serving Cajun Food and Fun

We have all wondered what the hammering and loud noises were coming from the old Carole Restaurant in Shell Knob. Well, the wondering is over, and out of the oldest building and the oldest restaurant space in Shell Knob rises the newest star, On the Bayou! Will and Jennifer Robinson have created a new and larger eating venue for the  patron looking for good food at a reasonable price. Last fall, the couple recognized the fact that their four-month-old Cajun Cuisine Cafe had outgrown the facilities on the west side of Bridge way Plaza. Their new kitchen has all the latest in restaurant equipment and the dining area is bright and colorful featuring the warm colors of New Orleans.
Saturday night, February 13, 2010 will be the Grand Opening of the new On The Bayou. The new and enlarged menu will feature their famous Cajun cuisine and many other popular local dishes. The entertainment for the event will be the smoothest voice in the west, Steve Mitchell. The new restaurant will seat 60 patrons and has an area for meetings. Hours will be 11 am to 9 pm and closed on Monday. Call 417-858-0710 for additional information.

Pets can Laugh too!

Laughing Matter

Originally published on January 28, 2010


If you have the feeling that your dog is smiling at you, it could be that he or she is ready for some fun.According to a recent study of dogs at play, researchers observed a distinctive rapid panting behavior that appeared to be the equivalent of laughter in dog language. The pant was used to communicate pleasure and evoked playfulness in other dogs. The next time you play a lively game of fetch with your pup, listen closely. The panting you hear may actually be a hearty laugh.
