    Home remedies remain an appealing alternative to costly doctor visits--they're effective, inexpensive, and ideal for everyday illnesses and injuries that don't require hands-on medical care.
     
    When brand-name product guru Joey Green tackles a subject like home remedies, readers can be found reaching into their closets, cupboards, and pantries for their favorite products to cure what ails them. From relieving a migraine with Dole Pineapple Chunks, treating stinky feet with Clearasil, and soothing an insect bite with Colgate Toothpaste, Joey Green's Magic Health Remedies is packed with reliable, user-friendly cures for everything from acne and calluses to morning sickness and toothaches--121 conditions in all. Joey divulges that many products have special, never-before-revealed qualities not found on the label and, with a little ingenuity, can be used to treat minor health issues and conditions.
     
    There's compelling evidence for experimenting with off-label uses--like when hay fever strikes, a little McCormick Ground Turmeric in a glass of water brings relief in 15 minutes; the bioflavonoids in the spice are antioxidants that suppress histamine production. Who knew? Well, Joey knows and now he's bringing fast relief (and lots of fun) to health care at home!

    Women obliged, by men and women to take a bestial role as eg bitches, milch-cows, ponies, seals?, mermaids?, piggies, used, abused, humiliated, loving every minute, every time! Much to her new trainer’s delight, Margaret never spoke another word, simply barking, yelping, panting and whimpering to express her feelings and desires. The naked cow nodded as hard as she could.  You let him fuck you like a good little cow.” “I’m a seal!  “Orr Orr Orr!”  Next would come the Mermaid’s tail, but first to reward the girl for her patience the man licked and fingered her desperate pussy, lovingly caressing her enclosed face and whispering sweet nothings that she could no longer hear. “There’s a good little pony,” groaned the Headmistress contentedly as she slipped her fingers into Angela’s pussy and fondled her firm ripe breasts. Fantasy bestial and age play—but remember in the real world keep it safe, sane and with the freely given consent of every party!
