Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.
Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.
This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.
Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.
It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.
The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.
In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

in The Bible
1 kings 17, Elijah 2, Acts 9, Mark 5,: Dead man in tombs with Jesus!
¶ And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the sojourners of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As Jehovah, the God of Israel, liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
And the word of Jehovah came unto him, saying,
Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before the Jordan.
And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee ther
So he went and did according unto the word of Jehovah; for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before the Jordan.
And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook
And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.
¶ And the word of Jehovah came unto him, saying,
Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Sidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain thee.
So he arose and went to Zarephath; and when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thy hand.
And she said, As Jehovah thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in the jar, and a little oil in the cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
Mandy Embury's "intro to bodybuilding" story is not unusual. It basically goes like this: she wasn't an athlete growing up; didn't start lifting heavy until later in life; competed way too much when she first started, losing muscle in the process; took time to build and made it to the Yorton!
While this sounds like a pretty cut-and-dried journey, there were several twists and turns along the way. Tonight, Mandy is joining Desiree and Kaelin to focus on the "took time to build" aspect of her adventure and dive into the importance of a planned improvement season and the difference it can make.
Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with Fiona Hamersley Chambers. Fiona is an ethnobotanist whose research focuses on how northwest coast First Peoples managed and co-evolved with their plant resources. Her PhD work, which is supervised by internationally-acclaimed ethnobotanist Dr. Nancy Turner, on BC’s central coast investigates how key berry plants were in cultivated and owned in ‘gardens’. Ultimately, the hope is for this applied research to act as a link between traditional knowledge and practice and the needs of First Nations communities as well as our larger society today. Fiona is a long-time organic farmer and commercial seed grower specializing in organically-grown and locally-adapted food plants. Fiona spent her childhood in the First Nations communities of Nitnaht Lake and Penelakut Island, where she maintains close ties. She also volunteers her time to help communities create food gardens.

Income and lots of it leads to wealth. Saving does not lead to wealth. Saving is a money management strategy NOT an income generating strategy.
Have you ever seen a river all dried up? Have you seen that river at full flow? Have you ever seen that river overflow to the point of a flood? This river analogy is similar to the income situation of many.
Cashflow and an overflow of it is a fantastic place to be. There is no challenge to move a cash overflow, but there are real challenges when the flow dries up.
In the parable of the talents in Matthew 25, the servants that had two and five talents each doubled their return and were rewarded by the Master. The one with one talent who buried it was called wicked, lazy servant and punished. He stashed away the one talent (saved it for later), while the others increased their income.
Let's give attention to income IN COME. Focus on making money and more of it. Create a flow, then an overflow. The problem is not spending or debt - the real problem is INCOME! Like any illness, if you only take care of the symptoms you will continue to have the problem. Take care of the real problem and the symptoms go away.

Welcome to the 2016 FREE Conscious Living Series –
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, like you never have enough time to get done what you need to get done?
Do you feel tired, yet wired, at the same time?
For the past 4 years I have dedicated my broadcasts to a yearly theme, and this year warrants the same because there is a crisis brewing – and it is brewing within each and every one of us who carries a cell phone, spends time in front of the computer, or watches TV. Technological advances have surpassed our body’s ability to process the input.
We are overloaded with information; bombarded by the radio waves of technology, and inundated with the toxins in the very air we breathe. Add to this the affects of our own personal stress, and many have become what experts are calling, a world of “stresss-o-holics.” We respond in excessive ways, and ultimately our brains “crave” the fight, fight, or freeze response.
The crisis is epidemic; world-wide, and chronic.We have become a world of stress-o-holics with no way to relax.
We cannot escape the crisis.
We cannot avoid the stress.
We need a solution that helps our systems adapt, and that solution needs to be spiritually-based and energetically efficient!
Weaving my interactive tapping™ sequences into the traditional 12-Steps of Recovery, and applying this structure to a predictable Four Stage recovery process offers you a viable, user-friendly, solution to this challenge.
Today hear an overview of the problem - an outline of the solution!

Sunday is the key day of the week when Media and Politics unite, marry and elope with our minds via hypnosis. you are led to only consider that Politics is the only driver of our country and till now, you are right. to break from the trance of Politics, you need a call, a calling to release the spellbound hold. I am here to free us from the hold, the hostage taking that is the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. they are both bad bed bugs. each one biting at the American Apple Pie and you are the crumbs. Help me crumple & crumble the money, the buying of our leadership and the pimping of your lives. I am an average American with more than average desire to lead us away from distress, defeat and discouragement. I want the job of President because I can do it. It is really simple if you are not a Politician. But, Congress won’t work with me. It and Them haven’t worked for you or our country. But, if 120000000 Presidential Write-In Ballots are cast, they are on notice that It’s & Their days are under review and subject to recall and prosecution by the people. Trust me and not the Political Personas presented to us. These famous people live expensive lifestyles, eat better than you and have more insurance & protection than you. Don’t you want a person in the White House who lives like you and pains like you. my idea of the Presidency is a good one and can lead us back to better than what we have now. Please listen to me, trust me, believe in me. Please believe that we as a Nation can succeed if we douse Politics and It’s money in cold water. Freeze out the bankers and bankrolls of the rich and the Political. bwell I am hoping that you understand me and accept me……….c2it curtis clinton
Essay in defense of the 2nd Amendment right to deep and near arms.
The Second Amendment already provides deep and even prescient insight about hunting.
It’s there to prevent a madman, or a mob, or any government from huntingyou.
Visiting crime, massacre or genocide memorials anywhere in the world will tell you that millions of names wind up carved in marble or stone not because guns were banned, but because they were banned for just those names, or were out of their reach, or were simply not enough.
The Second Amendment is not there so that you can have no choice but hold a candle at a vigil. It’s there so that all can choose to hold and use the means by which they will save their lives and the lives of others, and avoid the carving of their names into cold marble that will be streaked with melted wax and with the dried tears of those who will remember them.
To understand the real purpose of the Second Amendment is to learn and lament the circumstances of the defenseless, unarmed”, or “disarmed” that could not use arms to protect themselves regardless of their nationality, sex, race, creed, or ethnicity–anywhere in the world, and at any time in history
The madman and madmen, have always been with us, and will always be with us forever. As well as also should be, the means by which to stop them, whether they be evil, mistaken, or just following orders.
