Welcome to the Gutenberg Editor

Of Mountains & Printing Presses

The goal of this new editor is to make adding rich content to WordPress simple and enjoyable. This whole post is composed of pieces of content—somewhat similar to LEGO bricks—that you can move around and interact with. Move your cursor around and you’ll notice the different blocks light up with outlines and arrows. Press the arrows to reposition blocks quickly, without fearing about losing things in the process of copying and pasting.

What you are reading now is a text block the most basic block of all. The text block has its own controls to be moved freely around the post…

… like this one, which is right aligned.

Headings are separate blocks as well, which helps with the outline and organization of your content.

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Handling images and media with the utmost care is a primary focus of the new editor. Hopefully, you’ll find aspects of adding captions or going full-width with your pictures much easier and robust than before.

Beautiful landscape
If your theme supports it, you’ll see the “wide” button on the image toolbar. Give it a try.

Try selecting and removing or editing the caption, now you don’t have to be careful about selecting the image or other text by mistake and ruining the presentation.

The Inserter Tool

Imagine everything that WordPress can do is available to you quickly and in the same place on the interface. No need to figure out HTML tags, classes, or remember complicated shortcode syntax. That’s the spirit behind the inserter—the (+) button you’ll see around the editor—which allows you to browse all available content blocks and add them into your post. Plugins and themes are able to register their own, opening up all sort of possibilities for rich editing and publishing.

Go give it a try, you may discover things WordPress can already add into your posts that you didn’t know about. Here’s a short list of what you can currently find there:

  • Text & Headings
  • Images & Videos
  • Galleries
  • Embeds, like YouTube, Tweets, or other WordPress posts.
  • Layout blocks, like Buttons, Hero Images, Separators, etc.
  • And Lists like this one of course 🙂

Visual Editing

A huge benefit of blocks is that you can edit them in place and manipulate your content directly. Instead of having fields for editing things like the source of a quote, or the text of a button, you can directly change the content. Try editing the following quote:

The editor will endeavour to create a new page and post building experience that makes writing rich posts effortless, and has “blocks” to make it easy what today might take shortcodes, custom HTML, or “mystery meat” embed discovery.

Matt Mullenweg, 2017

The information corresponding to the source of the quote is a separate text field, similar to captions under images, so the structure of the quote is protected even if you select, modify, or remove the source. It’s always easy to add it back.

Blocks can be anything you need. For instance, you may want to add a subdued quote as part of the composition of your text, or you may prefer to display a giant stylized one. All of these options are available in the inserter.

You can change the amount of columns in your galleries by dragging a slider in the block inspector in the sidebar.

Media Rich

If you combine the new wide and full-wide alignments with galleries, you can create a very media rich layout, very quickly:

Accessibility is important — don’t forget image alt attribute

Sure, the full-wide image can be pretty big. But sometimes the image is worth it.

The above is a gallery with just two images. It’s an easier way to create visually appealing layouts, without having to deal with floats. You can also easily convert the gallery back to individual images again, by using the block switcher.

Any block can opt into these alignments. The embed block has them also, and is responsive out of the box:

You can build any block you like, static or dynamic, decorative or plain. Here’s a pullquote block:

Drink this 30 minutes before your two biggest meals of the day.

Once people see you and your standing out then more and more people will follow you.  That’s what you want.. people to follow you and read your posts.

I have a variety of boards, not all business, even though that is really why I got on pinterest was to promote my business..  But once I started searching and reading I new that Pinterest was much much more than business.

It is not my go to when I want a new food recipe. Or a new hair style and whats the best style for women over 60.  Yep that would be me..

Oh and I absolutely love all my DIY finds..  I am always looking for things to do like when I made my xmas tree out of a tomato cage.  LOL  I know but it really turned out well.  See: Just the right size for my camper.

What do you know about the Shingles?

You can think of shingles as the one-two punch of infections. Anyone who ever gets it had a case of the chickenpox first, often many decades earlier.

The reason these two conditions are paired up: They come from the same virus.

Chickenpox causes itchy blistersthat might start on your back, chest, and face and spread to the rest of your body. Shingles is a rash with shooting pain. It usually shows up on just one side of your body.

If you start to feel tingly and itchy on one side of your torso and then notice a rash, call your doctor. She can examine you and figure out whether you have shingles

The symptoms of shinglesinclude:

  • Localized burning, throbbing or stabbing pain where the rash will soon appear (within days to weeks); some people describe it as more itchy. It can be constant or come and go.
  • Tingling, itching, or prickling skin, followed several days later by a group of fluid-filled blisters on a red, inflamed base of skin; the blisters typically crust over in a week.
  • The rash may be accompanied by fever, fatigue, or headache

How Do I Know If I Have Shingles?

If you had chickenpox as a child, you might recall the itchy, spotted rash that popped up on your face and body. The varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox stays inside your body for many years.Once you’re older, that same virus can wake up and cause shingles, also called herpes zoster. It gives you a rash, too, but it’s often more painful than itchy.

A blistering rash on one side of your body can be a sign you have it. See your doctor to find out for sure. Once you’ve been diagnosed, you can get treated to help relieve your rash and other symptoms.

The Telltale Signs

Your doctor will first ask whether you’ve had chickenpox and look at your symptoms. A rash is the main sign of shingles. Often your doctor can tell that you have it from your skin alone.

shingles rash:

  • Appears on one side of your body and/or face
  • Stings, burns, and/or itches
  • Starts as red bumps that form into blisters

What Problems Can Shingles Cause?

When you have shingles, you tend to focus on the short-term — how to get relief from the pain and discomfort you have right now. For that, you have a lot of treatment options, from medicines to alternative therapies.

Shingles is a viral infection. The main symptom is a rash, usually on one side of your body. Typically, it hurts, burns, itches, and tingles. It may also give you a fever or headache and make you feel really tired.

Most of the time, your symptoms go away in less than a month. But for some people, complications come up.

While shingles itself is almost never life-threatening, it can lead to serious problems, such as the loss of eyesight.

If you think you have shingles, check with your doctor.

Antiviral Medications
These medicines may slow down the progress of the shingles rash, especially if you take them within the first 72 hours of having symptoms.They can also lower your chance of having complications. Your doctor may prescribe:

Talk with your doctor or pharmacist about side effects to watch for if you’re put on one these.

Information came from WebMD

When I had the shingles my biggest issue besides the pain was the itching..  Calamine Lotion become my best friend..Hope this has enlightened you about the shingles. If your over 50 and have had the shingles then you can get the shot. I actually had gotten my shot just last year.  I just didn’t want to take the chance anymore that I would get them a 5th time.  That’s right I have had the shingles 4 times already. Once on my lower back in 2001 and three times on my eye lid. once on the left and 2 times on the right.. That is not fun. My eyes swelled up and I couldn’t see for a day.. That was scary plus I had to have help eating, going to the bath room,  getting back in the bed.   So don’t take that chance if you can get  the shot please do so.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEARD THAT YOU SHOULD DRINK 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY?

The Health and Beauty Benefits of Water

How many times have you heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day? It’s common knowledge but do we really know why we need to drink that much water? Listen up!
Your body is mostly water and comprises about 60 percent of your body weight. According to the Mayo Clinic, water:
  • Eliminates wastes through urination, perspiration and bowel movements
  • Keeps your temperature normal
  • Lubricates and cushions joints
  • Protects sensitive tissues

Can dehydration cause hair loss?

While short-term dehydration will not harm your hair, chronic dehydration can cause hair loss. … Since your hair follicles lack water, they will stop producing new hair. If you’re chronically dehydrated, your follicles won’t grow enough hair to replace the strands that are shed naturally, resulting in hair thinning.

Water and other natural remedies can help you hair loss.

Besides water purification, vitamins and lifestyle changes have also been shown to encourage hair growth and even reduce hair loss. Below are several tips on how to keep your tresses healthy and vibrant through nutrition and drinking water.

Natural ways to grow hair and reduce hair loss

  1. Protein: Hair is made of protein so a protein deficiency can cause hair loss. Add protein to the diet by including meat, tofu, dairy, or protein shakes.
  2. Iron: The mineral iron helps increase circulation in the scalp which will fuel hair growth. Foods that have high iron content include liver, apricots, and raisins.
  3. Vitamin A: Helps create vibrant hair because it works with the fat synthesis in the hair follicles and spurs hair growth. Vitamin A can be found in carrots, kale, eggs, and squash.
  4. Vitamin B: Niacin (B3) promotes blood circulation to your scalp thereby encouraging hair growth. Biotin and the complex B vitamins are needed to grow hair. Vitamin B can be found in whole grains, fruit, eggs, fish, meat, and milk.
  5. Water: The hair shaft is comprised of one quarter of water. Drink at least 4 to 8 cups of water a day to stay hydrated and grow healthy hair.
  6. Reduce alcohol & cigarettes: Drinking alcohol reduces hair growth and smoking cigarettes reduces the blood flow to the scalp.

There are various benefits of drinking water for hair growth. Those are as follows:

1. Water is the root source of energy for each and every cell of our body. It includes those cells too, that are responsible for hair growth and its health.

2. Water nurtures cells and provides them required hair vitamins.

3. It generates magnetic and electrical energy which is considered as a core power to sustain life. This is done through a process called hydrolysis.

4. The roots of the hair and our scalp have many energy-sensitive and photosensitive nerve endings. Water activates all these nerve endings and other sensors in our skin and scalp that enhances the natural vitality of hair roots.

5. Drinking enough water can also help you get rid of dandruff and hair thinning problem.

It is truly said that water is life. Not only our skin and health, but water promote hair growth too and tend to fight with other hair and scalp challenges. And even mild dehydration can sap energy from the hair roots and result into hair loss.

But did you also know all the wonderful things water can do for your looks?Enough H2O does more than keep you hydrated. It helps your body flush out toxins more efficiently. The result? Fresher and more radiant-looking skin! Water helps your skin keep its natural elasticity and suppleness.

Make sure you stay hydrated to prevent hair loss..

Correcting the factors above will usually stop hair loss.  While remedies for the hair sometimes work, the most reliable way to stop hair loss, in my experience, is with a properly designed nutritional balancing program and use the right hair care products.  It only takes 23 seconds for hair products to get into your system so ask yourself one question, “Whats in my hair products that could harm me?’

What’s the Difference? Hydrating vs. Moisturizing the Hair….

 

38811524_1486136408153030_911350244409606144_n

 

Since Monat has come out with yet another new product and I was confused at first what was the difference between the too, I decided to do some research and I just had to share this with you too.  Because if I was confused some others maybe are too. Especially if your new to the concept of  healthy hair.  I never gave my hair really one thought before I started my business about hydration or moisturizing.   As long as it looked good to me I was blind to the rest of my hair needs.   So let me share with you what I have found in regards to this topic.

Imagine a plant growing in a pot. What would happen if you only spray water on the leaves every day and never poured water into the dirt for the roots to absorb? The plant would shrivel up and die right?

With that illustration in mind, let’s now examine the definitions of Hydration and Moisture as it pertains to our hair.

What’s the Difference?

Hydrating the Hair– The process of using humectants, proteins, amino acids and critical vitamins that penetrate the hair fiber infusing and improving the absorption of water and nutrients so that the hair holds and retains moisture.

To supply water to (a person, for example) in order to restore or maintain fluid balance.
Each pore on the surface of the skin is an opening to a canal called a follicle. The follicle also contains a hair and an oil gland (sebaceous gland). The oil gland keeps the skin lubricated and feeds the hair strand that it is attached to.

Increasing your water intake will not only make you feel better, but it will also hydrate your hair from within which is where your hair comes from.
If you are not drinking enough water, no doubt, you have dry, brittle, lifeless hair.
Hydration has to begin inside of your body.

Moisturizing the Hair– The process of using butters and oils to coat the OUTER surface of the hair fiber sealing and locking down the hair shaft so moisture can not get in or out of the fiber.

Water or other liquid diffuses in a small quantity as vapor, within a solid, or condenses on a surface.
This is what is being done when you spray water on a plant or as it pertains to this topic, on your hair. Spraying water or water based products on your hair is not enough to support a healthy head of hair.

Moisturizing your hair every day is pointless if your hydration is not up to par. Once the water has evaporated you are left with the same strands of lifeless hair.

Simply Put….FIRST you HYDRATE the hair to penetrate, absorb & nourish the hair from within. THEN you seal and lock down the hair shaft with a MOISTURIZER to keep the moisture in the hair.  Moisturized hair is happy hair.

So what does this mean for your current hair regimen?

If your hair feels chronically dry, wonky, brittle, rough, or just not like itself, and your products aren’t working (even spritzing water and and other concoctions doesn’t help), your issue may be hydration levels in your hair.

This brings us to what products should you use to hydrate your hair and what product should I use to moisturize your hair.
