Remedy for Burns.

Tom's Journal.

I am an optimist-- but I also know that Murphy's Law goes into effect most of the time, unfortunately.  I love the Boy Scout motto:  BE PREPARED, and the Army teaches just about the same thing.  All Soldiers know basic First Aid for combat situations, etc., and many employers love to hire Veterans because they KNOW how to take orders and use their heads!  American Motors hired me on 11-7-72 for those reasons plus the guy liked me as he knew that I was raised on a farm-- and not afraid of work.  

It's only common sense to understand that our 'emergency civil workers' and FEMA will be over whelmed  by any major disaster coming down the pike-- as proven before.  The following is a good tip that I wanted to pass on, as my good friend, Bob Melby, shared with me.
Some of the grass is getting green in my back yard!!

A friend passed this along to me.
You may have already seen this, but it seems to be valuable info, I am SO impressed by this...looks awesome!!!
My experience with burns is this:
Once I was cooking some corn and stuck my fork in the boiling water to see if the corn was ready. I missed and my hand went into the boiling water....
A friend of mine, who was a Vietnam vet, came into the house, just as I was screaming, and asked me if I had some plain old flour...
I pulled out a bag and he stuck my hand in it. He said to keep my hand in the flour for 10 mins. which I did. He said that in Vietnam, this guy was on fire and in their panic, they threw a bag of flour all over him to put the fire out...well, it not only put the flour out, but he never even had a blister!!!!
SOOOO, long story short, I put my hand in the bag of flour for 10 mins, pulled it out and had not even a red mark or a blister and absolutely NO PAIN. Now, I keep a bag of flour in the fridge and every time I burn myself, I use the flour and never ONCE have I ever had a red spot, a burn or a blister!
*COLD FLOUR feels even better than room temperature flour.
Miracle, if you ask me. Keep a bag of white flour in your fridge and you will be happy you did. I even burnt my tongue and put the flour on it for about 10 mins. and the pain was gone and no burn. Try it!
BTW, don't run your burn area under cold water first, just put it right into the flour for 10 mins and experience a miracle!
