Thank you Annie B. for these tips. I have never tried the cardamom seeds. Will have to soon.

Have tried them all, quite tasty although the clove bits can get annoying and the cinnamon sticks can break into a few shards here and there. Ginger is good as well, especially in a tea!

Interesting information. No sure about the cloves but I will definitely try the cardamom seeds.

I don't like cloves at all, but I would like to try the cardamon seeds. I'm a lover of garlic and onions, so this is great advice for me! Thank you!

I've heard about cloves a lot; think I'll try them out.

Beautiful story.

After cleaning the litter boxes yes, after touching Bubba or the kitties no. I also don't wash up…

what Tracy implied I am stunned that a single mom can make $6817 in one month on the computer . brow…

Saying 'thank you' - often - is a great stress-beater. As is giving compliments; out loud.

It's easy to be general after battle LOL Gladly shared to needy ones. :D
