No more Christmas caroling in this bus! It is GONE. We sold and delivered it to a guy in Reno on Valentine's Day. We had many a good trips in it, and I will miss how many it sleeps, but I will be glad that Nathan doesn't have to stress over driving it anymore. Happily, we got our money back out of it, so we feel it was a good investment. We didn't have to pay for motels or restaurants on our trip to Nauvoo, and that was the main purpose of getting it. So long, old friend! :)
Among many other things, we learned that it is very wise for women to do iodine tests to see if their bodies are low on iodine. Apparently, according to scientific findings, up to 90% of breast cancer in women is caused by a lack of iodine. It is very easy to do the test. Just rub about a 1 1/2" diameter circle of iodine on the inside of your arm, where the skin is tender. Keep track of what time you put this on.
Check for color after 8-12 hours:
Bright yellow like when you put it on means you have no deficiency
Pale Yellow: mild iodine deficiency (may take an iodine supplement)
Grayish color: Moderate iodine deficiency (supplement)
No color after 12 hours or less: severe iodine deficiency. (take supplements and retest every few weeks)
