Dandelion is often considered a annoying, quick-spreading weed, but in fact it has many healing properties. It can be used to help skin problems, acne, hepatitis, anaemia, stomach-ache, constipation, blood purification, indigestion and eczema.
Dandelion can be used in all sorts of herbal healing potions. Dandelion coffee (a strong tea made with dandelions) is loved throughout much of Europe. Whereas normal coffee hurts the liver with heat and toxins, this dandelion brew does the exact opposite! With no toxins or heat infecting your liver, you will feel more relaxed and much less irritable and easily angered. Drink twice a day for acne.
Dandelion leaves can be added uncooked to salads and soups. These leaves are high in minerals (great for your blood and nerves) and vitamins (helps your skin and improves eyesight). You could also use many other type of leaves, including fennel leaves.
A government is the body that runs a state. A government consists of a prime minister and some politicians (or governors). Each government is split into many departments, which decide what is best for them, their citizens and their state. Governments make rules, deciding what can and cannot take place in their state.
The State is the area controlled by a particular government, usually the same area as is called the country. The state includes all the businesses, politicians and citizens within it.
A politician is someone – usually working for the government – who participates in politics. Politicians are a main part of the government; advising the prime minister on good solutions and ideas to sort problems and keep their citizens happy.
A citizen of a state is a person who lives there legally. People who don’t have legal permission to be in a state (eg illegal immigrants) are not considered citizens and can be made to leave.
It’s a good job we went to the zoo yesterday, because If we had have gone today we would have been soaked to the skin, and the animals would almost definitely have been hiding! So luck weather-wise for us for once (It usually rains on our holidays :-)). By this I mean though, that it rained pretty much all day today!! We did go out once though, to Clare Castle. My favourite part was running up the hill to the ruins at the top (by the way; those ruins is the castle!) We also had a little walk in the park, which is in the same grounds as the castle.
We had our lunch when we got back, then Mum went to Tesco, and me and Rafe watched two X Men episodes from the disc we bought for a quid ready for our holidays!
Later, after a lovely savory snack, we played Pokemon on the DS. I got a Shiny Regigigas for my Shiny Charizard!!!! Regigigas is my favourite Pokemon, and he’s shiny and it’s been added to my pokedex!! Result! We did our index cards; I did one with Antonio, one of my Mario Kart 2 Characters on it. We had roast veg, pasta and pork patties (one of my fave meals!) for dinner. We had a bath in the boat-sized bath tub, then went to bed. What a day, even in the rain!
