        Since this is the season for working outdoors I thought I'd pass
this interesting tidbit along. I know this isn't specifically  blindness
related but I know none of us has extra money to throw away if we don't
absolutely have to and this can save you something. 



        By the way, this helps for fire ants too.




        Here is my part to help cut health care cost!!!



        This information may be something to remember, as this season
will soon be here again... 


        It might be wise to carry a penny in your pocket while working 

        in the yard......... BEE STINGS ! 


        A couple of weeks ago, I was stung by a bee while working in the

        My arm swelled up, so I went to the doctor. The clinic gave me
cream and an antihistamine. The next day the swelling was getting
progressively worse, so I went to my regular doctor. The arm was
Infected and needed an antibiotic.The doctor told me - ' The next time
you get stung, put a penny on the bite for 15 minutes'. 


        That night, my niece was stung. I looked at the bite and it had
already started to swell.. So, I taped a penny to her arm for 15
minutes. The next morning, there was no sign of a bite.  We decided that
she just wasn't allergic to the sting. 


        Soon, I was gardening outside. I got stung again, 

        by a hornet on my left hand. I thought, here I go again to the 

        doctor for another antibiotic. 


        I promptly got my money out and taped a penny to my bite then

        and sulked for 15 minutes. The penny took the string out of the
bite immediately. 

        No redness, no swelling.   


        Wanted to share this marvelous information in case you
experience the same problem. We need to keep a stock of pennies on hand


        The doctor said that the copper in the penny counteracts the
bite.  It definitely works! 


        Please remember and pass this information on to your friends,
children, grandchildren, etc.
