7 folds

4

Happy Halloween has come and gone but here is the culmination of Pumpkin Patch Dragons I’ve done for the past couple of years.

*Typically it’s their enflamed throat pouches that give them their names, but this time around I went with something else. The Pumpkin King Drake displays it’s unique defense mechanism to not only tuck it’s entire body within itself, revealing a plethora unpalatable spines and a smile which glows back at potential predators and trick or treaters alike.

*The Jack O’ lantern drake, also known as the Pumpkin Patch Dragon,  
gets it’s name from the striking pattern that adorns it’s inflated  
vocal sac. This pattern can come in any number of different “facial  
patterns” and is used both as a defense mechanism as well as to  
attract females.While not a danger to adult humans, small children and pets can be easily taken down by adult females. These dragons possess quite the sweet tooth and have been known to sit amongst Halloween jack I lanterns to snatch unsuspecting trick or treater’s candy bags.

*Far smaller than it’s larger cousin, the Jack O’ Lantern Drake, the  
Candy Corn Dragon also utilizes the jack o lantern patten in it’s  
vocal pouch, but for a different reason. Called Batesian mimicry the  Candy Corn dragon uses it’s throat pouch to mimic it’s larger cousin  as a way to intimidate and scare larger predators. Far less aggressive  than the Jack O’ Lantern drake It’s first line of defense is to trick  the potential threat giving it time to escape.

*The Jack O'lantern Hydra possesses the striking pattern of its cousin the Jack O’ lantern drake but 7 fold. While it’s cousin posses one impressive vocal sac the Hydra has 7. 2 larger sacs  flank either side of it’s head with 5 smaller sacs on it’s throat. When dilated and contracted the Jack O’ lantern hydra can create unique songs. These complex sounds are believed to be primarily used for sexual selection and communication, though song for enjoyment sake is not entirely out of the question. Though less likely to be seen in urban settings, unlike the Jack-o-lantern Drake,  the Hydra also has a taste for sweets and are known to actively pursue trick-or-treaters for their candy.

1. Fold paper in half both ways and turn over.
2. Fold diagonaly both ways.
3. Push two opposite sides together and flatten to a triangle.
4. Fold both upper layers to the midline above and turn form over with top down.
5. Fold the top over the bottom edge, so the tip sticks out a little bit. Not flatten the raised edges (circle).
6. Fold the tip over the side and turn the form over.
7. Fold in half along the centre line bringing both wings together.

What to do if you know you are becoming blind:

1. Get rid of hazards. Do not leave knives lying around. If your have hazardous chemicals/sharp objects in your living space/fridge, put them where you won’t accidentally touch them.
2. Learn to walk through your living space without opening your eyes, especially if you travel regularly and are not too familiar with it.
3. Order your clothes by color and kind and clean your living space, especially your bathroom. Don’t expect people to tell you if you go to work looking unshaven and wearing bright orange pants.
4. Do you eat? Do you have pets? Figure out a way to cook and eat without seeing and without burning/cutting/dirtying yourself. Do the same concerning medication.
5. Depending on the cause of your blindness make sure you won’t get shampoo in your eyes or look into a lamp by accident.
6. Learn how to use a white cane.
7. Learn how to fold and sort your money.
8. Learn to read braille.
9. Get a sufficient voice over program for your computer/mobile phone/tv.
10. Get (small) sunglasses. While not always necessary, depending on the light sensitivity, it will prevent people from becoming too uncomfortable by you staring nowhere or closing your eyes.
11. Inform those who need to know (e.g. your employer) and if irreversible apply for the appropriate support (e.g. government support if available) or become member of a community.
12. Get support. A family member, a friend, a house keeper or a colleague.
13. Get opinions from different doctors, but do not try various medical procedures at the same time.
14. Don’t panic! Loosing your eyesight is a scary feeling. Organisation is the only thing that will keep you from waking up realizing that you can not call for help. But even if you have no time to organize anything beforehand, you will learn and learning will bring you the opportunities you deem lost.
15. Take your time. When “it” happens, you can spend a day hugging yourself, lying in bed, crying if you want to and it does not hurt or harm your eyes. Sleep, pity yourself and then get up again, start to get through it.

MENSTRUAL CUPS 

The Divacup, Mooncup, Keeper, Lunette (and other brands) and the Instead/Softcup are also choices if someone wants something insertable that is also reusable and which is not a tampon. Because cups contain flow – rather than pulling flow and all vaginal fluids into something absorbent like tampons do, which also can cause some serious vaginal dryness – they can help limit extra cramping.

Here are some recommended steps for using a cup.

WASH

First, wash your hands with a mild, un-perfumed soap and water. When using the cup for the first time, you can lubricate it with water or a water-based lubricant to aid insertion.

FOLD

Fold the cup in on itself as shown in the picture. To do this squeeze the cup flat then fold it in half so that the rim makes a ‘C’ shape as illustrated here.

Punch down fold or shell fold is another folding method. The cup is smaller to insert but depending on unique anatomy this fold might take a few tries to get open.

7 Fold or Triangle Fold is a nice fold if you’re having ‘cup insertion challenges.’

HOLD

Hold the cup firmly in its folded position and guide it rim-first into the vagina.

INSERT

You can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting; spreading your legs will facilitate insertion. You‘ll find the correct position in the vagina by practicing and getting to know your own anatomy. Unlike a tampon, the cup is positioned in the lower part of the vagina, but beyond the pelvic bone. In order to avoid leaks, make sure that the cup has opened properly by rotating the cup after insertion.

REMOVE

To remove the cup, first wash your hands in clean water and relax your muscles. Break the seal by squeezing the bottom part of the cup until you feel or hear the suction release. Now gently rock the cup from side to side while pulling down. Be sure not to pull it out by the tab alone – this will cause the contents to spill and may cause discomfort. Always pull the cup out while pinching the ridged bottom of the cup. Be careful not to damage the tab or cup with your nails. Tip the contents into the toilet.

RINSE AND RE-USE

Cups should first be rinsed in cold water, so that menstrual blood does not stain the cup or cause odors. Then, wash the cup carefully in warm water and soap to clean it sufficiently before reinsertion. Use mild, perfume-free soap for washing.

CARE

When your period is over, wash the cup carefully and store it in the bag it comes with or make your own container, and never store it in an airtight plastic container or bag. The cup should be cleaned before and after your cycle, and after emptying.

Do you use a cup? If so, what do think of it?

Healthy Oatmeal Muffins

Ingredients

•2 ½ cups old-fashioned oats (1.5 cups ground), 2 Tbsp reserved for muffin tops
•2-3 large overripe bananas (1 c. mashed) or 1 cup applesauce
•2 eggs (lightly beaten)
•⅓ cup honey
•¾ cup milk
•2 tsp real vanilla
•2 tsp baking powder
•½ tsp baking soda
•½ tsp salt
•1 tsp cinnamon
•muffin tin (this is my favorite, no seams for easy clean up)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place oats on a baking sheet and toast until lightly browned, stirring once (about 4 to 6 minutes). Let cool to room temperature. (If you are in a hurry you can skip this step and use plain old-fashioned oats, however the toasting adds flavor!)
2. Turn oven heat up to 350 degrees.
3. Place 1.5 cups of oats in a food processor and blend/pulse until they reach a rough, flour like consistency.
4. Mash bananas well, they should have no lumps. I use my mixer to mash them before adding the other wet ingredients.
5. Add eggs, honey, milk and vanilla. Mix to combine.
6. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just incorporated. Allow these to sit for 10 minutes to soak the oats.
7. Optional: Fold in approximately ½ c blueberries, raisins or nuts.
8. Scoop into muffin tin, lined with muffin wrappers (makes 14 muffins).
9. Bake at 350 for about 20 -23 minutes, a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin should come out clean.
10. Enjoy!
