Rainbow - Beethoven 9th



Evil spirits enter us through many ways as indicated in the examples below.
Innocent Victim :
In some cases, evil spirits enter an innocent victim. The victim may be an unborn baby who is cursed from the mother's womb. The curse can be from a jealous relative, friend, enemy, or even the child's own parents.
Innocent victims may also include children who are not loved, who are mistreated or abused or rejection by other children, siblings, parents, etc. The abuse can range from sexual abuse, mental abuse, or physical abuse.
Those who Choose Evil:
In other cases, an evil spirit may enter us because of involvement in evil practices such as the occult, The occult is any practice that involves ceremonies, rituals, chants, magic, or activities that are obviously not God centered. These activities or rituals can change the course of nature, the the lives of those who are involved in such practices, and of course, the innocent victims.

The use of magic revolves around evil spirits, psychic abilities and contacting spirits. Magic is a power that does not involve God. It is a power that is derived from such things as voodoo, sorcery, primitive religions and Satanism. Most witches who use magic swear that they do not worship Satan but worship the gods and goddesses of nature (The gods and goddesses of nature are hardly Jesus Christ! Of course they worship Satan! Do not let someone who practices this occult tell you otherwise!). Many of these individuals are unknown because they blend in quite well. They can be found attending church services in every denomination and they practice their magic on the side. If someone tells you white magic is ok--don't believe them!!

Pamela Anderson is a very strict vegetarian who does not eat red meat, chicken, pork, fish or seafood. Pamela became a vegetarian in her early teens, after walking into a shed in her backyard and seeing her father cut the head off a deer he had just hunted and killed. She has been a PETA member and ardent supporter of animal rights since 
High school.
Pam has also lent her famous face to PETA’s efforts by appearing in a high-profile billboard campaign. The billboard, which will be running throughout the U.S. and around the world, calls on consumers to boycott KFC until the company agrees to make the much-needed animal welfare improvements that PETA has recommended. Pamela has also narrated a video illustrating just how horribly KFC treats chickens, which PETA is running as a 30-second commercial on TV and radio stations across the country.
Pamela also has a few tricks to help her stay on her strict diet. She chews sugar-free gum while she's cooking for friends to stop her picking at the ingredients.

mon amour est comme ca !


Steamingis a great way to cook. Foods maintain their flavor and nutrients when they aresteamed. They also taste great once seasoned with lemon, olive oiland herbs .Astudy published by the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture foundthat light steaming was the healthiest way to cook when compared with all othercooking methods and their effects on retention on nutrients and antioxidants!The best way to steam vegetables is to cook them until the point they are firmbut not hard. By doing so, you have very little loss of nutrients. Letting themcook few minutes past that point will result in loss of most nutrients. If yousteam for a long time, the color of the water will deepen, reflecting lossof nutrients.


Roastingis done with dry heat in an open pan in a hot oven at about 450 F or higher. It crisps upthe exterior of the meat or vegetables while it slowly cooks the insides. Roastroot vegetables at 450Ffor about 30 minutes without any oil. Stir two to three times.


Grillingis great especially when the weather is great out. But it easy to make grillingan unhealthy way of cooking. Here are some tips to make sure that our grillingis healthy!
Grillon an area without direct flame as the temperatures can get very high if thefood is directly on the flame. Do not overcook or burn the food. If you doovercook it, it will form toxic compounds!
Ifyou like marinating your food before grilling that is great. Use ingredientsrich in antioxidant such as lemon, onions, rosemary or black pepper. If youchoose to oil, (although we suggest against it), use oils that have high smokepoint such as avocado oil or high oleic safflower oil to reduce the amount ofoxidative damage that will occur!
It features plenty of fruits and vegetables, beans, pulses and grains inabundance,
olive oil as theprincipal fat, moderate drinking of wine, herbal teas like  Greek MountainTea said to be a "cure all" or Dittanyof Crete said to be an aphrodisiac! Honey andyoghurt, occasional use of lean red meat, and low to moderate consumption ofdairy foods, fish and poultry.
