Day Four at Clohesy and Skin Cancer

I am waking up really early.  I woke up at 3:00 a.m. but just laid in bed until 5:00 a.m. because it is too darn cold to want to get out from under the covers.  But finally, the desire to get to the computer overruled and I jumped out.

My jobs today were mostly domestic.  I cleaned the toilets and shower then I tackled the kitchen and dining room which needed a good cleaning.  I finished those jobs at about 10:30 and then decided I'd go work on the pineapples again.  Most of the weeds I can pull by hand but some are so entrenched I have to use a mattock.  We prepared lunch and then cleaned up before eating.

Our lunch was 1/2 papaya, a mandarin, 1/5 of an avocado, a banana, and a bowl of freshly grated coconut.  The clients ate with us today and got the same food we did.

After lunch I got a chance to put on my swimsuit and lay out in the sun a little while.  Then I found a spot outside where I could practice the flute.

Jim, one of the clients here, is a very sweet man from the south of Australia.  He had a head injury several years ago.  No one knows what happened to him.  He was just found lying unconscious.  When he woke up he had amnesia.  He thought his children were young, but they were grown.  He has lost twelve years of his life from his memory.  He tears up when he tells about losing the years with his wife and children.  He started raw foods and coming to Dr. Fielder to fast because he began to have fits after his accident.  All that has cleared up....just sometimes he still has flickers of light in his eye.  He is excited that occasionally he will remember something and his wife will tell him that was something that really happened.  I pray he can recover his memory.  He asked me for some good raw food recipes.  I told him about Amy's Mango-Avocado Salad.

During our consultations yesterday we had some conversation come up about skin cancer.  Sun block actually causes skin cancer.  Of course, you have to use common sense in the sun.  When we sunbathe at the farm, we are counseled to start off with 10 minutes per side and work up to 30 minutes.  But I was interested to learn that fluorescent lighting causes more skin cancer than the sun.  If we are under fluorescent lighting, we need to switch to full-spectrum lighting.  I then asked about tanning beds for those of us that don't live in the tropics.  Dr. Fielder says they are harmful because they are ultra-violet light...not full-spectrum light.  Ultra-violet light is one-sided and therefore not beneficial to us.  He says that even the ones that say they are full-spectrum are actually ultra-violet.  (?)

Dr. Fielder had a board meeting in town last night.  He seemed really excited to go somewhere without us tagging along.  He took his supper with him and Deborah, Priscilla, Jim and I had dinner together.  Deborah had orange juice because she is feeling nauseous (her body is still wanting to do more healing).  The rest of us had lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado salad with Green Lava dressing.  I only had a little of the Green Lava.  It's not my favorite.

After supper, Jim went to take a call from his wife while Deborah, Priscilla and I went into the office and watched You-Tube videos about raw foods.  We watched Dan McDonald and some You-Tube videos of some of Priscilla's friends...RawDownUnder and some others I can't think of right now.

Got to bed about 8:30 again.

Stay safe and be happy.

Love to all....


  1. I am glad you have someone to visit with you for a while: Deborah and Priscilla. I am praying that someone new will arrive soon, too. Did you consider the idea of the extension cord? I think I might switch to juicing for a little while since I am trying to heal my hand and face. I'm a mess. BTW, did you notice on my fb that Vivian Matthews Kelley died. She was one of the four Black girls in my class in high school. She was a very good student and always had a smile on her face. She was not visibly ill, and they believe she may have had a heart attack. I remember a couple of years ago in Houston when Dr Fielder told me that the first step toward healing is to learn not to fear death. That's hard to do when a former classmate dies suddenly. I am enjoying your blog.

  2. I appreciate your comment about the extension cord, but I don't think it will help me that much. I have figured out I can charge my camera battery, so I think I will be able to charge my iphone. Right now I am using Priscilla's Australian iphone charger. Sorry to hear about Vivian...so sad. Juicing is a great idea...let your body rest from trying to digest food.
