Hi to all, Beings I was doing a Celtic Tree of the month blog entry. I thought this was fun lore to add today. I also added a excerpt of a poem written by; Liza Lambertini who is also the wonderful artist of the image above..
Guess she's been spying on me???

ELDER; An elder wood cradle or fairies spirit the baby away or pinch them so that they bruise. Elderberry wine is considered fairy wine. Drinking it is said to enable you to see fairies. Add dried elderberries to an incense mixture that you burn to attract fairies to a gathering. The word Elder is derived from an old Anglo-Saxon word ‘aeld’ meaning fire, an association given to the Elder because of its use. The soft pith of an Elder branch pushes out easily and the tubes formed were used as pipes for blowing up fires, later Elder bellows were made for same effect. From this came the folklore name Pipe-Tree - and the belief that the most resonant horns were made from Elder trees grown in areas away from human habitation and away from the sound of a cocks-crow. Popguns and whistles had long been made from the Elder.
HAWTHORN; is also known as Witches Tree. Along with the Oak and Ash, when growing naturally together these three will make a natural place where fairies can easily be seen. A grove comprised of those three trees is believed to be the perfect habitat for fairies, and an excellent place to catch sight of them. Pixie Pears is another name for hawthorn berries. Hawthorn was once used to decorate May poles. At one time hawthorns were believed to be Witches who had transformed themselves into trees. Witches have long danced and performed their rites beneath the thorn. Hawthorn has long been used to increase fertility. Because of this power it is incorporated into weddings, especially those performed in the spring. Call on the Goddess Áine or the Goddess Brigit while holding a hawthorn branch or wand of hawthorn to increase fertility. Fishermen should carry some hawthorn and call on the Gods Manannan and Lír if fishing at sea, or Nechtan if fishing inland. The leaves, curiously enough, are also used to enforce or maintain chastity or celibacy. The leaves are placed beneath the mattress or around the bedroom for this purpose. Worn or carried it promotes happiness in the troubled, depressed, or sad. Call on the Goddess Grian to bring some sunshine and happiness into your life. Hawthorn protects against lightning, and in the house in which it resides, no evil ghosts may enter. It is also powerful for protecting against damage to the house from storms. In the past most Witch's gardens contained at least one Hawthorn hedge.
OAK; is the king of the forest. Oak trees are safe havens and homes for many varieties of fairies. Oakmen are created when an oak stump sends up shoots. One should never take food offered by the Oakmen, as it is poisonous.

Fairies cherish the Great Oak and use the acorns for decoration, celebrations and use the tops for hats. The leaves are used in the autumn celebrations. There are some families of fairies who live in the Great Oaks. Hundreds of faeries have been found to live in the oldest Oaks. There are fairies to be found in every Oak tree, the health of the surrounding environment plays a major role in determining the number of fairies that actually inhabit the Great Oak. Planting an acorn in the dark of the moon ensures that you shall receive money in the near future. Carrying an acorn increases fertility and strengthens sexual potency. Carrying a piece of Oak draws good luck.
ASH; has healing properties in fairy folklore. Ash is a sacred tree to the Druids. The ash was made into wands used for healing, general or solar magic. It was believed that children with crooked bodies, legs or arms should be passed through young ash trees. If the tree grew tall and straight, so also would the child.
APPLE; was regarded as the fruit of immortality in Celtic Mythology. The Welsh 'Avalon' means 'Apple Island'. The fruit or bark of apple trees can be used in fairy magic, especially for love spells. Cúchulainn followed the trail of a magical apple to gain his freedom in one story. Connla the son of Conn is fed an apple by a fairy lover which sustains him but also makes him fall hopelessly in love with her. One of the tasks of the children of Tuirenn is to retrieve the magical apples of the Hesperides.
BLACKTHORN; is used for creating magical wands. Magic wands made from blackthorn can be used for many purposes. When a blackthorn magic wand is carried, it confers protection from evil, can be used for wishes. Also good for divining rods.HOLLY is an excellent protective herb, Holly; guards against lightning, poison and evil spirits. Planted around the home it protects it and its inhabitants from mischievous sorcerers. When thrown at wild animals, holly makes them lie down quietly and leave you alone, even if you don't hit them with the plant. Holly water (infused or distilled) is sprinkled on newborn babies to protect them. Holly is also carried to promote good luck, especially by men, since the Holly is a 'male' plant. It is also hung around the house for good luck.


So tend you garden gently,be careful with each flower.

Know everything has a purpose,with every passing hour.

Do not be afraid of wild creatures,

For the faeries tend to all.That is no easy feat,

For one that is so small.If you want to see a fae,

and you want to believe they are true,

it is how you live your life,

that will draw the fae to you.

Manuka Honey

Manuka Flower

Hi to all , Well I am still doing research for my friend and for stomach cancer. I am doing well. I have found natural treatments that are used abroad which have more than promising results in the Japanese culture. Now I found something from New Zealand. It is honey, aboriginal "Manuka". I am a walking testimonial for tea tree oil and as some of you may know it is a wonder--> a true natural wonder. I purchase a product of tea oil from "Thursday Plantation" tea oil products. Skin aliments, infection, ear infection, you name it--> it will resolve almost any skin aliment.. I know I used it for over ten years. Well it had crossed my mind some time ago about bees in the tea oil tree groves.. I wondered what the honey was like? Well, I accidentally came across this research as I did some cross referencing on stomach cancer. Particularly the "helicobacter pylori bacteria" .
Unknown to most of my closest friends I suffer from very painful stomach problems. (pre peptic ulcers I fear.) But I have worked hard for a long time with diet and stress related practices to over come. As I feel that my problems stem from emotional stress coming from my life in general. Then my son deploying to Iraq four times that just about finished me off.. I have been successful with Chinese herbal treatments that I have learned to create and use .. But my discovery of this honey really excites me. It will taste much better than cabbage juice<--( which I have learned to like it!!) I have always believed what comes from nature can be cured by nature. That's what makes this world balanced. I have ordered this product and will up date my results with it... Tea oil works wonders on the outside so I have high hopes this will echo those results..

I have copied and posted some of the research explanations from Dr.Molan pages below.

Many sparkles Bee

Active Manuka Honey, is harvested from the flower of the wild, un-cultivated Tea Tree Bush (called leptospermum scoparium) in New Zealand. The bees are placed in the middle of wild tea tree bushes to collect this precious, medicinal honey. The honey is then very carefully extracted from the comb in a process called 'cold slung'. The honey is 'swung cold' out of the comb, after carefully scrapping off the comb capings. The comb capings keep the honey inside the comb. ( this is the method I use here at home with my honey) Active Manuka Honey has been used by New Zealand's Aboriginal people for centuries for both stomach as well as wound healing purposes.

Active Manuka Honey has been researched over 20 years by Dr. Molan, Senior Lecturer, Biochemistry Department at the Waikato University in New Zealand. Dr. Molan has found that Active Manuka Honey seems to naturally destroy staph, strep as well as the h. pylori bacterium (helicobacter pylori ) the bacteria typically associated to stomach ulcers & stomach cancer). For more information about Dr. Molan's Reserach work, please visit the website of the Waikato University. Active Manuka Honey has been shown in laboratory studies to have antibacterial activity against the 7 most common species of bacteria found in wounds. 58 strains of Staphylococcus Aureus isolated from infected wounds showed complete inhibition at concentrations of 2-3% Active Manuka Honey.

What is Active Manuka Honey used for Internally?

· Acid Reflux
· Heartburn
· Esophagus Ulcer
· Up-set Stomach
· Stomach Ulcer/Peptic Ulcer
· Helicobacter Pylori
· Gastritis
· Duodenal Ulcer
· Ulcerative Colitis
· Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Are there any side-effects to Active Manuka Honey"

· No known side effects (occasional burning / stinging sensation, when used for external wound care, keep reading)
· Supported by extensive research
· Protects and heals
· Can be used long-term
· Easy to use and safe
· Anti-inflammatory effect
· Antibacterial effect 4 times greater than standard Antiseptic (minimum 18% carbolic equivalent)
· Naturally seem to destroy staphaureus, streptococcus and helicobacter pylori
· Fights Methicillin-Resistant Staph Auereus (MRSA)
· Painless changing of wound dressing
· No malodor
· No skin grafting needed
· Cost effective

There are no known side effects to Active Manuka Honey when used internally, unless you are allergic to honey itself. Occasionally, when Active Manuka Honey is used on an external wound, it can burn and sting for a while, because of it's high activity level. If the burning and stinging persists after 5-10 minutes, the Active Manuka Honey must be removed from the wound and can be replaced with Regular Manuka Honey. The Regular Manuka Honey should not burn and sting at all when applied to a wound and can still be quite effective in helping the wound heal all natural.

Bee's version of a Post it Note!

Due to the latest on the stock market collapse , and our governments tactics of "mums the word" on the Real financial status of the country that will effect the 80 % of the American population that live below the current cost of living range -- NOT the 20 % that are "OUR" financial benefactors. No matter how many of President Bush's staff slowly slip away to get out of his shadow, I believe he will not leave office before his financial fleecing of this country catches up with him.. I think he miscalculated the trickle down affect of his own groups greed.. As every one below him also grabbed themselves a chunk.. Of America.

One more political financial note.. A national representative for the Saving and Loan Association spoke on the PBS public broadcast Radio last night he stated that the nation wide withdrawal rate for the Savings and Loan insitutions is at 30%. He stated that it has never been that high in their history and that they can not withstand another 2 %. If so it will be devastating to the Savings and Loans Insitutions. He also said that this money is not being recirculated into the financial system?? They are looking into who is collecting this money and not recircultiing it.. Thus starting what use to be called a " RUN" ( If yo do not know what run is watch; " Its a Wonderful Life --with Jimmy Stewart thats what the movie is about( I love that movie))
The National Interest rate is also at a critical place. I learned from a Financial Analyst on a PBS television broad cast that it has not been this low since two years before the stock market crash of the 1920's. This is not good folks.. I new the fleecing of America was going to get bad when Our presedent pushed us into Iraq. Its an old tactic used by goverment for century's..--> "To control large populations you keep them poor and confused."

I have placed a link for a article on the Federal Reserve ( Below) I think everyone should read.. I hated one part of it when the author states that the majority of people will not be able to understand or comprehend what it means..? I hate that !! But I recently read a statistical poll from a cable company that said the 86% of Americans do not have cable or satellite television service.. Which means that are watching

-->Air TV<--

Have you watched that crap!! It is truly frightful to think that's all the information 86% of America is getting!! I can just hope they are reading instead??

Federal Reserve Privately Owned?
When the 1816 charter expired in 1836, Andrew Jackson vetoed its renewal. It was then that he made two famous statements:

"The Bank is trying to kill me - but I will kill it!"
Later he said "If the American people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system - there would be a revolution before morning..." (Reference 4)

"The Autumn"

Go, sit upon the lofty hill,

And turn your eyes around,

Where waving woods and waters wild

Do hymn an autumn sound.The summer sun is faint on them --

The summer flowers depart --

Sit still -- as all transform'd to stone,

Except your musing heart.

How there you sat in summer-time,

May yet be in your mind;

And how you heard the green woods sing

Beneath the freshening wind.

Though the same wind now blows around,

You would its blast recall;

For every breath that stirs the trees,

Doth cause a leaf to fall.

Oh! like that wind, is all the mirth

That flesh and dust impart:

We cannot bear its visitings,

When change is on the heart.

Gay words and jests may make us smile,

When Sorrow is asleep;

But other things must make us smile,

When Sorrow bids us weep!

The dearest hands that clasp our hands, --

Their presence may be o'er;

The dearest voice that meets our ear,

That tone may come no more!

Youth fades; and then, the joys of youth,

Which once refresh'd our mind,

Shall come -- as, on those sighing woods,

The chilling autumn wind.

Hear not the wind -- view not the woods;

Look out o'er vale and hill-

In spring, the sky encircled them --

The sky is round them still.

Come autumn's scathe -- come winter's cold

--Come change -- and human fate!

Whatever prospect Heaven doth bound,

Can ne'er be desolate.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I dedicate this poem to all my dear friends that are going through sad times and are grieving for loved ones lost..

Many Hugs

Life After Harry

Well, I have been thinking a lot about what are all of us Potter fans going to do now... Tragic isn’t it! That the dedicated fans life was so patterned and governed by this Potter series’. We do have the movies that are still coming out so that’s a highlight to look forward to. But, I guess that means we must go out to find a new book adventure. I've listed three books I would recommend for the kids or for the kid in you….
Until then, JK Rowling leaves us with seven fantastic books and a world of imagination and dreams that we can return to on our own, whenever we like.

Celtic Tree of the Month

Hi to all, I thought I would do a blog entry on "Celtic tree of the month" from the Celtic Moon Calender. As I was reminded of this just lately. I had planted Hazel nut trees to the SE an SW of the fairy garden hoping to help draw more fairy's . ( see highlighted text) One towards the entrance, one at the exit. We are still working on the continuing project of the fairy garden.. Which is coming along nicely. The stone wall is almost complete now then to finish laying the Mica stones. We have some laid already.. I hope to have some pictures in the next few weeks..



9th Moon of the Celtic Year - (Aug 5 - Sept 1)

Latin name: European hazel - corylus avellana; American Filbert - corylus americana.
Celtic name: Coll (pronounced: Cull). Coll means "life force within you".
Folk or Common names: tree of Wisdom, Lamb's Tails Tree, Collo or Coslo (Gailic), The tree's name shares a common root with the walnut tree and its nut, or cnu and hnot in Europe and Nux in latin.
Parts Used: Nut, leaves, branches, wood.
Herbal usage: Hazel can be used as a drainage remedy and can help restore elasticity to the lungs. Hazelnuts, of course, can be eaten, and are a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, copper, protein and fatty acids. The nuts can be powdered and be mixed with mead or honeyed water to help a cough.
Magical History & Associations: The bird associated with this month is the crane, the color is brown, and the gemstone is band-red agate. The Hazel, a masculine herb, is associated with the element of air, the planet of Mercury, the day of Wednesday, and is sacred to Mercury, Thor, Artemis, Fionn, Diana and Lazdona (the Lithuanian Hazelnut Tree Goddess). Hazel wood is one of the nine traditional firewood's that is part of the Belfire that the Druid's burned at Beltane - it was added to the fire to gain wisdom. In fact, in ancient times the Hazel was known as The Tree of Wisdom. It is often associated with sacred springs and wells and salmon. Celtic legend tell of a grove of Hazel trees below which was a well, a pool, where salmon swam. These trees contained all knowledge, and their fruit contained that knowledge and wisdom in a nutshell. As the hazelnuts ripened, they would fall into the well where they were eaten by the salmon. With each nut eaten, the salmon would gain another spot. In order to gain the wisdom of the Hazel, the Druids caught and prepared the salmon. But Fionn, the young man stirring the pot in which the salmon were cooking, accidentally burned his thumb with the boiling stew. By reflex, he put his thumb into his mouth and thus ingested the essence of the sacred feast; he instantly gained the wisdom of the universe.
Magical usage: The Hazel has applications in magic done for manifestation, spirit contact, protection, prosperity, wisdom, divination-dowsing, dreams, wisdom-knowledge, marriage, reconciliation, fertility., intelligence, inspiration, and wrath. Hazel is a good herb to use to do magic associated with asking for wisdom and poetic inspiration since the Hazel is known as the Tree of Immortal Wisdom. In England, all the knowledge of the arts and sciences was thought to be bound to the eating of Hazel nuts. Hazel also has protective uses as anti-lightning charms. A sprig of Hazel or a talisman of two Hazel twigs tied together with red or gold thread to make a solar cross can be carried as a protective good luck charm. The mistletoe that grows on hazel protects against bewitching. A cap of Hazel leaves and twigs ensures good luck and safety at sea, and protects against shipwrecks. In England, the Hazelnut is a symbol of fertility - a bag of nuts bestowed upon a bride will ensure a fruitful marriage. The Hazel is a tree that is sacred to the fey Folk. A wand of hazel can be used to call the Fey. If you sleep under a Hazel bush you will have vivid dreams. Hazel can be used for all types of divination and dowsing. Until the seventeenth century, a forked Hazel stick was used to divine the guilt of persons in cases of murder and theft. Druids often made wands from Hazel wood, and used the wands for finding ley lines. Hazel twigs or a forked branch can be used to divine for water or to find buried treasure. The wood of the Hazel can help to divine the pure source of poetry and wisdom. Hazelnuts can be used for love divination. Assign the name of your passion to a nut and throw it in the fire while saying:
"A Hazelnut I throw in the flame,to this nut I give my sweetheart's name,If blazes the nut, so may thy passion grow,For twas my nut that did so brightly glow."
If the nut burns brightly you then will know that your love will burn equally as brightly. Hazels are often found at the border between the worlds where magical things happen, and therefore Hazel wood is excellent to use to make all-purpose wands. Any Hazel twigs, wood or nuts should be gathered after sundown on Samhain ( Halloween) since it will be at the peak of its magical energy. Hazel must not be cut with a knife, but with a flint.

Poem of the day !!

If You See A Faery Ring ~ William Shakespeare

If you see a faery ring
In a field of grass,
Very lightly step around,
Tip-toe as you pass,
Last night faeries frolicked there,
and they're sleeping somewhere near.
If you see a tiny faery,
Lying fast asleep
Shut your eyes
And run away,
Do not stay to peek!
Do not tell
Or you'll break a faery spell.

Stomach Cancer Info

Hi To all, as many of my close friends already know. A very dear friend of my has been diagnosed with stomach cancer he is forty years old. I am doing a post about this particular cancer as I am doing research for him to help cure this... I found the information unbelievable that this is caused from a bacterium found in miss handled foods... Not frozen either, but fresh product and smoked and pickled products... I am passing on the most pertinent information to you in hopes it brings awareness and we can spread this information around. This bacterium is also related to the cervical cancer bacteria!!


As recently as 100 years ago, stomach (gastric) cancer was the most common type of cancer in the United States. However, the incidence of stomach cancer has declined dramatically. The reason for the drop is not completely known, but experts think it may be related to the decreased consumption of improperly handled food, salted or smoked foods. Still, gastric cancer remains a major cause of death in other areas of the world, including Russia and Japan.When a tumor grows in the stomach, the stomach expands. However, the stomach normally expands readily in response to large meals and gas, so a tumor may become quite large before the patient experiences any discomfort. In fact, about 80 percent of early gastric cancers cause no symptoms. Because stomach cancer is so difficult to detect in its early stages, when it is most treatable, the overall cure rate is only in the range of 10 percent. (I find this percentage variable as every study or institution gives a different percentage)

When stomach cancer does produce symptoms, it most commonly causes pain in the upper part of the abdomen. This pain may be related to ulceration (sores) or obstruction (blockage) of the stomach. If obstruction occurs, then the patient may also have nausea and vomiting, especially after meals. Another possible warning sign of stomach cancer is bleeding, which occurs when the cancer ulcerates. The bleeding can be heavy, leading to bloody vomit or black, tarry stool, or can be more subtle, with small amounts of blood found in the stool. Another symptom of stomach cancer is a feeling of fullness early in a meal. This occurs because the growth of the cancer prevents the stomach from expanding fully during a meal. If you experience any of the possible warning signs of stomach cancer, you should seek medical attention. The best test that can be done to evaluate for gastric cancer is an endoscope examination of the stomach. In this procedure, the doctor passes a flexible scope down the throat to view the lining of the stomach.

Good adviceif you have the slightest suspicion of any of the symptoms mentioned, you should contact your doctor at once for an assessment. How is stomach cancer diagnosed?Investigations for cancer of the stomach include:
X-ray examination, in this case a barium meal. This involves swallowing a white, chalky liquid and having a series of X-ray pictures taken of the stomach area.
· The most important test is a
gastroscopy. During a gastroscopy, the doctor examines the inside of the stomach using a camera attached to a flexible tube and is able to take a sample from the tumor for biopsy and microscopy.
What is stomach cancer? Stomach cancer is the result of cell changes in the lining of the stomach. In Western Europe, stomach cancer is only about one third as common as it was 50 years ago.The location of the tumors within the stomach has also changed. It used to be that most of the tumors were located near where the stomach joins the small bowel, now the commonest site is close to the junction with the esophagus (gullet).Stomach cancer is very common in Japan and the Japanese have developed an intensive and effective approach to screening for stomach cancer.
What causes stomach cancer?The causes of stomach cancer continue to be debated. A combination of heredity (the genes inherited from your parents) and environment (diet,
smoking, etc) are all thought to play a part.
***Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)
Another herpes virus probably best known for causing infectious mononucleosis, also known as "Mono." It infects and resides in
white blood cells and increases the risk of nasopharyngeal cancer, stomach cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma and some types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Research has suggested it also may play a role in aggressive forms the great majority of people infected with EBV never develop cancer. Cancers associated with this virus are more common in Africa and parts of Southeast Asia
Milk, fresh vegetables, vitamin C and frozen food all appear to reduce the risk of stomach cancer. Any kind of food that has been smoked, pickled or salted appears to increase the risk. Other risk factors that have been suggested include being blood group A, and having the bacteria ***Helicobacter pylori in the stomach. Stomach cancer is more common in men than women, and has its peak age range between 40 and 60 years old.
Shiitake Mushroom

One preliminary trial suggested that oral shiitake may be useful for people with
hepatitis B.2 A highly purified, intravenous form of lentinan is used in Japan and has been reported to increase survival in people with recurrent stomach cancer, particularly when used in combination with chemotherapy. 3 Similar findings have been found in one small clinical trial with people suffering from pancreatic cancer.4 Case reports from Japan suggest that intravenous lentinan may be helpful in treating people with HIV infection.5 However, large-scale clinical trials to confirm this action have not yet been performed.
How much is usually taken?
The traditional intake of the whole, dried shiitake mushroom is 6–16 grams per day.7 the mushroom is typically eaten in soups or taken as a decoction (i.e., boiled for 10–20 minutes, cooled, strained, and drunk). Recommended intake of LEM is 1–3 grams two to three times per day. Purified lentinan is considered a drug in Japan and is not currently available as an herbal supplement in North America. But it can be purchased though vitamens web sites. In capsule of 500mg I found a web site that is really good and sells a pure product.

Are there any side effects or interactions?
Shiitake has an excellent record of safety but has been known to induce temporary
diarrhea and abdominal bloating when used in high amounts (above 15–20 grams per day). Its safety during pregnancy and breast feeding has not yet been established.

Blessed Lammas to all

Hi To All,

Many cultures have “first fruit rituals”. The Celtic version is called -"Lughnasadh" is more popularly knownas” Lammas” in many areas of the British Isles. Lammas comes from the Middle English Lammasse. This illustrates the incorporation of Lughnasadh by the Church into its seasonal calendar, as many other Old Celtic and agricultural holidays were. The harvest of the early grain was baked into loaves and offered at mass. It also became a feast that the Church celebrated in commemoration of Saint Peter's deliverance from prison.
Lughnasadh is a time of personal reflection and harvest, of our actions and deeds, events and experiences, our gains and losses. A time when we begin the cycle of reflection of that which is our life. A period for personal fertility magic to ensure the bountiful harvest of life's gifts and experiences, that which we have reaped though trial, tribulation, enjoyment, joy, love and loss. As my Great Grandmother once said to me, "We can not know what we have not experienced." Such is the truth of life. We become not by chance but by experience. Each experience opens a window into ourselves, into who we were, who we are, and whom we are choosing to become.

Lughnasadh is a bitter sweet holiday as well. Mingled with joy with the current seasons harvests with the knowing that summer is soon to end.
Celebrate with a decorative wooden bowl of golden red apples and bake up a loaf of whole wheat bread served with drizzled honey. Share with family and friends... Light a golden candle and reflect on the day and the season...


The primrose murmured to the wind, "Drink in my fair scent,
And tell the child you left behind, Where hidden violets grow.

"Tell him the squirrels leap the boughs, The woodpecker goes tap, tap!
While baby rabbits sit and browse upon the green turf's mossy lap.

"Tell him that scarlet toadstools stain the silent pathways through the wood. The spider weaves a jeweled chain, the busy ants abroad for food.
"Then bid him" said the primrose,
come to sing with us, and work and play, to hear the wild bee's pleasant hum, and be contented all the day."
