This dog has a sweet tooth! does your dogg like skittles too?
can be a big factor in creating better health. But where does Zrii get this power? From the perfect marriage of natural resources, the wisdom of ancient Ayurveda, and the knowledge of state-of-the-art Western medical science.
Here are seven of its benefits:
Amalaki, the great rejuvenator. Central to Zrii is a small fruit that grows at the base of the pristine Himalayas in northern India. Its nutritional profile truly places it in a class of its own—which means it can be an extraordinary source for you to find rejuvenation, vitality, and energy.
A formulation that takes nutrition to the next level. Mixed only with fruit juices, amalaki would be a top nutritional drink. But that wasn't enough to ensure that you received the highest level of nutrition possible, so we created a synergistic blend of herbs and fruits to completely unlock the potency of amalaki.
Preservative-free. Zrii uses the world's purest whole-food source of amalaki, all grown at the foot of the Himalayas, surrounded by the cleanest air and water on the planet—which means no harmful artificial chemicals or contaminants.
Wildcrafted in the Himalayas Our amalaki is wildcrafted, a harvesting technique where the fruit is taken from trees as it is naturally found in nature, hand-picked according to ancient techniques.
Endorsed by the Chopra Center. Zrii is proudly endorsed by the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, founded by world-famous Dr. Deepak Chopra and neurologist Dr. David Simon—the first third-party provider the Chopra Center has ever endorsed.
A vibrant taste. In Ayurvedic practice, the ability of a food or drink to "enliven the tongue" is a hallmark of its healing capabilities. And as those who've tried it will tell you, Zrii most assuredly enlivens the tongue.
The wisdom of Ayurveda. The formulation for Zrii is built on 5,000 years of Ayurvedic wisdom, which calls for multiple ingredients working together synergistically to maximize nutritional potency.
Zrii offers you many potential health benefits. Why? It's no surprise once you look at the incredible nutritional profile of amalaki, the keystone ingredient in Zrii. This small fruit contains a huge number of nutrients that can contribute to improved health and wellness. Here is a sample:
Phytonutrients, amino acids, trace minerals, anti-oxidants, polyphenols, tannins, bioflavonoids--substances well-documented for their ability to promote cellular rejuvenation and overall vitality.
Ellagic and gallic acid, and emblicanin--polyphenols that may help to reduce cellular oxidative stress, destroy free radicals, and support the detoxification of the body.
Rutin, quercetin superoxide dismutase--substances that can contribute to amalaki's anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and youth-promoting qualities.
Ascorbagins--"mighty molecules" that are shown to create a protective bond around their own rich source of Vitamin C molecules, making them more bio-available than synthetic varieties.
And to think that the amalaki is only one of the seven active ingredients in Zrii. The other six enhance the effectiveness of amalaki, and also contain incredible nutritive qualities themselves. For example, Jujube is high in vitamin C, while ginger is a good source for magnesium and other trace minerals
Amalaki is the keystone of Zrii's formulation because it is the botanical for cellular rejuvenation. But we are not the first to see its benefits. For centuries, this small fruit, which grows in the fertile soil at the base of the Himalayas, has often been considered the most effective source for, among other things, promoting cellular rejuvenation, enhancing immune function, and increasing vitality.
More recently, many of these miraculous benefits have been explained, as scientists and nutritionists around the world have documented its properties and unique makeup. However, we still use only the purest, whole-food source of Amalaki found anywhere in the world, grown where it originated, fed by the cleanest air and water on the planet. Furthermore, the fruit is wildcrafted, a harvesting technique where the Amalaki is taken from trees as they are found in nature, hand-picked according to ancient techniques.
For more than 2,500 years, Ginger has been used to treat ailments and please the palate. Today the edible portion of the perennial plant is used worldwide in a variety of ways. In France they use it to flavor a liqueur and the United Kingdom produces a ginger flavored wine. In the Middle East, ginger powder is used as a spice for coffee and in the West, we use Ginger to satisfy our sweet tooth in gingerbread, ginger ale, ginger snaps—even ginger candy.
Generally Ginger is used to improve digestion, absorption and assimilation. In addition, Ginger has been used frequently for dyspepsia and

Ok so I told you guys back when I started my marathon training that I would keep you Jordan Kothe
Ok so I told you guys back when I started my marathon training that I would keep you guys posted/updated on my status and how the training is going. I am so happy to say that the training is going amazing and I'm really excited about the big day!
What I want to talk about today is the beginning of my training and some of the things I had to change/give up in my life. I had to change my lifestyle. I had to change my sleeping and eating habits. The sleeping wasn't a big deal...and changing my eating habits wasn't a big deal either except for the fact that....I HAD TO GIVE UP CANDY! I have the biggest sweet tooth and I love candy!
Anyway, when I started my training I had to do a lot of things that I wasn't necessarily comfortable with. Running this marathon is definitely not a part of my comfort zone. But I had committed to running this race so I just accepted the fact that I was a little uncomfortable/scared but I stepped out of my comfort zone and started my training anyway.
The same thing happened when I started building my 5linx business. When it came to making videos, the first video I made took like 64 takes and it took me all night Sunday and half a day on Monday. By the time it was finished, I wasn't even happy with the results I just had to put out the video. That experience was SO uncomfortable! I didn't know how to act in front of the camera, what to say, or how to have a conversation with the camera but I knew that if I wanted to build my business and get better that I was going to have to continue making videos. So that is exactly what I did, I accepted that the experience was going to be uncomfortable at first but I stepped out of my comfort zone and continued to make videos and because of that I am getting better and better.
So I want to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone to try something new. Maybe it's something that you have always wanted to do or are in the process of doing or maybe you have a home based business, MLM, network marketing, pyramid scheme, direct sales, traditional business, online business, whatever you want to call it ;) Or if you are associated with any of these companies...

Gulab Jamun recipe: how to make Indian dessert - Gulab Jamun at home. A must try recipe for everyone who has a sweet tooth.
Christina Rossetti - Goblin Market - Read by Kate Reading
by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)
Morning and evening
Maids heard the goblins cry:
'Come buy our orchard fruits,
Come buy, come buy:
Apples and quinces,
Lemons and oranges,
Plump unpecked cherries,
Melons and raspberries,
Wild free-born cranberries,
All ripe together
In summer weather,—
Morns that pass by,
Fair eves that fly;
Come buy, come buy:
Our grapes fresh from the vine,
Pomegranates full and fine,
Dates and sharp bullaces,
Rare pears and greengages,
Damsons and bilberries,
Taste them and try:
Currants and gooseberries,
Figs to fill your mouth,
Citrons from the South,
Sweet to tongue and sound to eye;
Come buy, come buy.'
Evening by evening
Among the brookside rushes,
Laura bowed her head to hear,
Lizzie veiled her blushes:
Crouching close together
In the cooling weather,
With clasping arms and cautioning lips,
With tingling cheeks and finger tips.
'Lie close,' Laura said,
Pricking up her golden head:
'We must not look at goblin men,
We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?'
'Come buy,' call the goblins
Hobbling down the glen.
'Oh,' cried Lizzie, 'Laura, Laura,
You should not peep at goblin men.'
Lizzie covered up her eyes,
Covered close lest they should look;
Laura reared her glossy head,
And whispered like the restless brook:
'Look, Lizzie, look, Lizzie,
Down the glen tramp little men.
One hauls a basket,
One bears a plate,
One lugs a golden dish
Of many pounds weight.
How fair the vine must grow
Whose grapes are so luscious;
How warm the wind must blow
Through those fruit bushes.'
'No,' said Lizzie, 'No, no, no;
Their offers should not charm us,
Their evil gifts would harm us.'
She thrust a dimpled finger
In each ear, shut eyes and ran:
Curious Laura chose to linger
Wondering at each merchant man.
One had a cat's face,
One whisked a tail,
One tramped at a rat's pace,
One crawled like a snail,
One like a wombat prowled obtuse and furry,
One like a ratel tumbled hurry skurry.
She heard a voice like voice of doves
Cooing all together:
They sounded kind and full of loves
In the pleasant weather.
Laura stretched her gleaming neck
Like a rush-imbedded swan,
Like a lily from the beck,
Like a moonlit poplar branch,
Like a vessel at the launch
When its last restraint is gone.
Backwards up the mossy glen
Turned and trooped the goblin men,
With their shrill repeated cry,
'Come buy, come buy.'
When they reached where Laura was
They stood stock still upon the moss,
Leering at each other,
Brother with queer brother;
Signalling each other,
Brother with sly brother.
One set his basket down,
One reared his plate;
One began to weave a crown
Of tendrils, leaves, and rough nuts brown
(Men sell not such in any town);
One heaved the golden weight
Of dish and fruit to offer her:
'Come buy, come buy,' was still their cry.
Laura stared but did not stir,
Longed but had no money:
The whisk-tailed merchant bade her taste
In tones as smooth as honey,
The cat-faced purr'd,
The rat-faced spoke a word
Of welcome, and the snail-paced even was heard;
One parrot-voiced and jolly
Cried 'Pretty Goblin' still for 'Pretty Polly;'—
One whistled like a bird.
But sweet-tooth Laura spoke in haste:
'Good folk, I have no coin;
To take were to purloin:
I have no copper in my purse,
I have no silver either,
And all my gold is on the furze
That shakes in windy weather
Above the rusty heather.'
'You have much gold upon your head,'
They answered all together:
'Buy from us with a golden curl.'
She clipped a precious golden lock,
She dropped a tear more rare than pearl,
Then sucked their fruit globes fair or red:
Sweeter than honey from the rock,
Stronger than man-rejoicing wine,
Clearer than water flowed that juice;
She never tasted such before,
How should it cloy with length of use?
She sucked and sucked and sucked the more
Fruits which that unknown orchard bore;
She sucked until her lips were sore;
Then flung the emptied rinds away
But gathered up one kernel stone,
And knew not was it night or day
As she turned home alone.
Lizzie met her at the gate
Full of wise upbraidings:
'Dear, you should not stay so late,
Twilight is not good for maidens;
Should not loiter in the glen
In the haunts of goblin men.
Do you not remember Jeanie,
How she met them in the moonlight,
Took their gifts both choice and many,
Ate their fruits and wore their flowers
Plucked from bowers
Where summer ripens at all hours?
But ever in the noonlight
She pined and pined away;
Sought them by night and day,
Found them no more, but dwindled and grew grey;
Then fell with the first snow,
While to this day no grass will grow
Where she lies low:
I planted daisies there a year ago
That never blow.
You should not loiter so.'
'Nay, hush,' said Laura:
'Nay, hush, my sister:
I ate and ate my fill,
Yet my mouth waters still;
To-morrow night I will
Buy more:' and kissed her:
'Have done with sorrow;
I'll bring you plums to-morrow
Fresh on their mother twigs,
Cherries worth getting;
You cannot think what figs
My teeth have met in,
What melons icy-cold
Piled on a dish of gold
Too huge for me to hold,
What peaches with a velvet nap,
Pellucid grapes without one seed:
Odorous indeed must be the mead
Whereon they grow, and pure the wave they drink
With lilies at the brink,
And sugar-sweet their sap.'
Golden head by golden head,
Like two pigeons in one nest
Folded in each other's wings,
They lay down in their curtained bed:
Like two blossoms on one stem,
Like two flakes of new-fall'n snow,
Like two wands of ivory
Tipped with gold for awful kings.
Moon and stars gazed in at them,
Wind sang to them lullaby,
Lumbering owls forbore to fly,
Not a bat flapped to and fro
Round their rest:
Cheek to cheek and breast to breast
Locked together in one nest.
Early in the morning
When the first cock crowed his warning,
Neat like bees, as sweet and busy,
Laura rose with Lizzie:
Fetched in honey, milked the cows,
Aired and set to rights the house,
Kneaded cakes of whitest wheat,
Cakes for dainty mouths to eat,
Next churned butter, whipped up cream,
Fed their poultry, sat and sewed;
Talked as modest maidens should:
Lizzie with an open heart,
Laura in an absent dream,
One content, one sick in part;
One warbling for the mere bright day's delight,
One longing for the night.
At length slow evening came:
They went with pitchers to the reedy brook;
Lizzie most placid in her look,
Laura most like a leaping flame.
They drew the gurgling water from its deep;
Lizzie plucked purple and rich golden flags,
Then turning homeward said: 'The sunset flushes
Those furthest loftiest crags;
Come, Laura, not another maiden lags,
No wilful squirrel wags,
The beasts and birds are fast asleep.'
But Laura loitered still among the rushes
And said the bank was steep.
And said the hour was early still
The dew not fall'n, the wind not chill:
Listening ever, but not catching
The customary cry,
'Come buy, come buy,'
With its iterated jingle
Of sugar-baited words:
Not for all her watching
Once discerning even one goblin
Racing, whisking, tumbling, hobbling;
Let alone the herds
That used to tramp along the glen,
In groups or single,
Of brisk fruit-merchant men.
Till Lizzie urged, 'O Laura, come;
I hear the fruit-call but I dare not look:
You should not loiter longer at this brook:
Come with me home.
The stars rise, the moon bends her arc,
Each glowworm winks her spark,
Let us get home before the night grows dark:
For clouds may gather
Though this is summer weather,
Put out the lights and drench us through;
Then if we lost our way what should we do?'
Laura turned cold as stone
To find her sister heard that cry alone,
That goblin cry,
'Come buy our fruits, come buy.'
Must she then buy no more such dainty fruit?
Must she no more such succous pasture find,
Gone deaf and blind?
Her tree of life drooped from the root:
She said not one word in her heart's sore ache;
But peering thro' the dimness, nought discerning,
Trudged home, her pitcher dripping all the way;
So crept to bed, and lay
Silent till Lizzie slept;
Then sat up in a passionate yearning,
And gnashed her teeth for baulked desire, and wept
As if her heart would break.
Day after day, night after night,
Laura kept watch in vain
In sullen silence of exceeding pain.
She never caught again the goblin cry:
'Come buy, come buy;'—
She never spied the goblin men
Hawking their fruits along the glen:
But when the noon waxed bright
Her hair grew thin and grey;
She dwindled, as the fair full moon doth turn
To swift decay and burn
Her fire away.

Although Whitney Houston: The Ultimate Collection did overlook a few great songs, it stayed true and relevant at delivering a simple greatest hits album than the 2000 one, by trimming the dance beats, and staying true to just the simplicity of Whitney Houston's voice. While more of the hype right now is on acts like Britney Spears and her so-called comeback Blackout, Beyonce' and Jennifer Lopez, Whitney Houston's songs stand strong with the testiments of time, and this hits album does basically show that well.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale video review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow video review of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale from SuperBot Entertainment and Sony for the PlayStation 3. This fighter is the Sony equivalent to Nintendo's Smash Bros. series featuring Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Big Daddy from BioShock, Cole MacGrath from Infamous, Colonel Radec from Killzone, Dante from Devil May Cry, Emmett Graves from Starhawk, Fat Princess, Heihachi Mishima from Tekken, Jak and Daxter, Kat from Gravity Rush, Kratos from God of War, Nariko from Heavenly Sword, PaRappa from PaRappa the Rapper, Raiden from Metal Gear Solid, Ratchet and Clank, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil, Sly Cooper, Spike from Ape Escape, Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, Toro Inoue from Together Everywhere! and more! The difference is it tries to be a bit more of a serious fighting game, as well. And largely, that's where it succeeds. All-Stars has a more technical fighting system beneath all the chaos, one that makes it feel like more of a fighter than a fighting party game. This video review features video gameplay footage of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
