as always -- your Feng Shui tip of the month.
Earlier this month I took
part in Spirit Fair in OKC, I truly enjoyed meeting many diverse people. I gave

they were received.

Cooper Vo-Tech in Shawnee on Aug. 20.

Francis Tuttle in OKC on Aug 28.
Congratulations are in order for my son
and his wife, I just returned from Portland Ore. after having helped them move
to their new home. I am very happy they are owners of a house. My father always
told us: "No one is making new land, so always own a piece of property", very
It's every where, how does one get
rid of dust? It is nearly impossible to get rid of dust, but one of many ways to
do it is, dampen a cloth and run it over the surfaces of your home. By rinsing
the cloth in hot water you will kill the dust mites that are present. Dust mites
are on all surfaces and even suspended in air. Dust mites feed on minute
particles of organic matter, the main constituent of house dust. They excrete
enzymes to digest dust particles; these enzymes and their feces, (yuk!) in turn,
become part of house dust and can provoke allergic reactions in humans. Dust
mites flourish in the fibers of bedding, furniture, and carpets. The more dust
you have the larger the concentration of dust mites! Don't you wish I had never
told you all of this? I am sorry I had to be the bearer of yucky, icky news, I
only have your best interests at heart!
House dust can be removed by as
many as 10 methods, such as: wiping, swiping, or sweeping by hand, or with a
dust cloth, sponge, duster , or broom, or by suction by a vacuum cleaner or air
Why is it so important to get rid of dust you may ask? Dust is
actually responsible for making our environment "heavier". I have noticed in
homes where little or no dusting takes place the inhabitants are much more
lethargic, unfocused, constantly disorganized and usually flit from project to
project. A clean, dust free home encourages clear thinking and vitality of mind.
The simple act of dusting will encourage creative thinking, and we know, all of
us can use creative, motivated thinking in our lives.
Since we are talking dust, the best way to get rid of dust is to use
a cloth you can re-use over and over again. I don't like sponges, since they can
encourage bacteria growth. I like to be able to use old t-shirts which can be
laundered. This way you impact the earth less by using less paper products. A
total waste of our natural resources. I do like the Swifter products, but they
are adding to our trash, so my advice is: dust the old fashioned way... with a
Feng Shui tip:
You guessed it! It has to do
with dust, our theme for this news letter!
While you are dusting you move
objects, thus moving the energy in your home. This simple action moves the
stagnant energy, disperses it and allows you to become focused and motivated.
The more dust you have in your home, the likely hood of malaise in your everyday
life is greater. My advice, dust your home once a week and every few months give
the base boards and all your furniture good deep cleaning. This means the
ceiling fans also. Dust your car too, since most of us spend a chunk of our time
As always, I am grateful for the comments a lot of you send my

colourful because I have met so many like minded people. I thank you all for
