How to check the purity of Honey

sweet honey picture

Honey is the natural product made by honey bees. Real honey should not come from a factory but from bees.

Fake honey is ‘honey’  that has been added glucose, dextrose, molasses, sugar syrup, invert sugar, flour, corn syrup, starch, or any other similar product, other than floral nectar.

The Water Test to Spot Fake Honey
Here’s how to do the water test:

  • Fill a glass with water
  • Add one tablespoon of honey into the glass
  • Adulterated or artificial honey will dissolve in water and you will see it around the glass
  • Pure honey on the other hand will settle right at the bottom of your glass

Thumb Test

Here’s the procedure to do a thumb test:

  • Put a small drop of the honey you have on your thumb
  • Check to see if it spills or spreads around
  • If it does, it is not pure
  • Pure honey will stay intact on your thumb

The Flame Test to Know Pure Honey

Did you know that organic honey is flammable? Here’s a test to know 100% pure organic honey.

  • Take a dry matchstick
  • Dip its tip right into the honey
  • Strike the stick on the matchbox as if to light it
  • If the honey is pure, the matchstick will light with ease
  • The flame will also keep burning off the honey
  • However, if it is with impurities, it will not light because fake honey contains moisture as one of the impurities

Drop honey on blotting paper or a paper towel

If honey has been diluted with water, it may be absorbed or leave a wet mark on an absorbent material such as blotting paper. Pure honey should not be absorbed, but unfortunately, neither will honey diluted with most sugar syrups.

Peacock

stock-photo-male-peacock-in-front-of-white-background-190908056

Peacocks mainly found in Asia and are among the most decorated birds on earth. Peacocks belong to the pheasant family of birds. Peacocks is the national bird of India.

Peacock is the male bird. The female is called ‘peahen’, and the babies ‘pea chicks. Males are larger than the females and have longer tails. Peacocks are flying birds but they cannot fly very long distances. Peacocks are not born with a fancy tail. When young, they look like their mothers. The male birds are very ordinary when they hatch. It’s is only after 6 months that the males begin to look different. The plume only grows after 3 years of age and the tails can grow to as long as 6 feet.

A group of female peafowls is called a ‘Bevy’. Female power to the fore. Their grouping does have a special name but you are free to call one a muster, or even a party. Peacocks shed their feathers yearly. Interestingly, peacocks take on a fresh feather set each year after the old one is discarded. A male peacock can live for 20 years. Peacocks are hunted for their feathers. Peacock is a nationally protected bird but in medieval days, the bird was regularly hunted, more for its feathers than its meat.

To save themselves from predators, these birds stay put on trees, sometimes for days. Like most birds, Peacocks are also omnivores. They are happy eating insects, flowers, seeds and small rodents and lizards. Peacock can send out fake mating calls. Peacock’s are master con birds. When they want to attract female attention, they actually send out fake copulative mating calls.Taken in, the females are attracted to this fraud artist, who gets to score over his rivals and collect a harem. Researchers have found that more than one third of the mating calls made were absolutely fake. However, the males do plan an active part in rearing the young. when a male quivers the feathers of its tail, they send out low frequency sounds to attract female attention.

Peacock feathers are covered with small crystals that glitter and attract the attention of the opposite sex.These crystal like structures reflect light and bring about the fluorescent look to the feathers. Butterflies and humming birds use the same method to get noticed. The male is definitely the prettier one, but when it comes to choosing a mate, the female reserves the right to reject a suitor to mate with. Features like length, color and tail feathers are considered when accepting a mating call.

Peacocks are not solitary birds. They do get very lonely and sad, when kept alone. They even let out unpleasant sounds to express their grief and anguish. peacocks are notoriously polygamous, fiercely protecting a harem of two to five peahens.

Peacocks have been considered as sacred birds by Hindus. The bird is associated with Kartikeya, known as Lord Murugan in South India. Worshiped as a god of war, Kartikeya in Hindu gods genealogy is the son of Lord Shiva. A peacock is the mount of Kartikeya.

Tigers and lions hate this bird for they are normally the first ones the break the news that the cats are on the prowl. Their call is also one of the loudest and it warns the jungle about the impending dangers.

Mother’s Day

It is the centuries old. The earliest Mother’s Day celebrations can be traced back to the spring celebrations of ancient Greece in honor of Rhea, the Mother of the Gods.

507654333

During the 1600’s, the early Christians in England celebrated a day to honor Mary, the mother of Christ. By a religious order the holiday was later expanded in its scope to include all mothers, and named as the Mothering Sunday. Celebrated on the 4th Sunday of Lent (the 40 day period leading up to Easter), “Mothering Sunday” honored the mothers of England.

During this time many of the England’s poor worked as servants for the wealthy.
As most jobs were located far from their homes, the servants would live at the houses of their employers. On Mothering Sunday, the servants would have the day off and were encouraged to return home and spend the day with their mothers. A special cake, called the mothering cake, was often brought along to provide a festive touch.
With the passage of time, the practice of this fantastic tradition ceased slowly. The English colonists settled in America discontinued the tradition of Mothering Sunday because of lack of time.
In the United States, Mother’s Day was loosely inspired by the British day. It was first suggested after the American Civil War by social activist Julia Ward Howe. In 1870, she tried to issue a manifesto for peace at international peace conferences in London and Paris. In 1872, she went to London to promote an international Woman’s Peace Congress. She began promoting the idea of a “Mother’s Day for Peace” to be celebrated on June 2, honoring peace, womanhood and motherhood. In the Boston Mass, she initiated a Mothers’ Peace Day observance on the second Sunday in June, a practice that was to be established as an annual event and practiced for at least 10 years. The celebrations died out when she turned her efforts to working for peace and women’s rights in other ways. It is a landmark in the history of Mother’s Day in the sense that this was to be the precursor to the modern Mother’s Day celebrations. To acknowledge Howe’s achievements a stamp was issued in her honor in 1988.

It should be well to remember that Howe’s idea was influenced by Ann Marie Reeves Jarvis, a young Appalachian homemaker who, starting in 1858, had attempted to improve sanitation through what she called “Mothers Friendship Day”. In the 1900’s, at a time when most women devoted their time solely on their family and homes, Jarvis was working to assist in the healing of the nation after the Civil War. She organized women throughout the Civil War to work for better sanitary conditions for both sides and in 1868 she began work to reconcile Union and Confederate neighbors. Ann was instrumental in saving thousands of lives by teaching women in her Mothers Friendship Clubs the basics of nursing and sanitation which she had learned from her famous physician brother James Reeves, M.D.

Anna Jarvis daughter of Jarvis, who finally succeeded in introducing Mother’s Day in the sense as we celebrate it today. Anna had spent many years looking after her ailing mother. This is why she preferred to remain a spinster. When her mother died in Philadelphia on May 9, 1905, Anna missed her greatly. So did her sister Elsinore whom she looked after as well. Anna felt children often neglected to appreciate their mother enough while the mother was still alive. Now, she intended to start a Mother’s Day, as an honoring of the mothers. In 1907, two years after her mother’s death, Anna Jarvis disclosed her intention to her friends who supported her cause wholeheartedly. So supported by her friends, Anna decided to dedicate her life to her mother’s cause and to establish Mother’s Day to “honor mothers, living and dead.” She started the campaign to establish a national Mother’s Day. With her friends, she started a letter-writing campaign to urge ministers, businessmen and congressmen in declaring a national Mother’s Day holiday. She hoped Mother’s Day would increase respect for parents and strengthen family bonds.

As a result of her efforts the first mother’s day was observed on May 10, 1908, by a church service honoring Late Mrs. Reese Jarvis, in the Andrews Methodist Church in Grafton, West Virginia, where she spent 20 years taking Sunday school classes. Grafton is the home to the International Mother’s Day Shrine. Another service was also conducted on the same date in Philadelphia where Mrs. Jarvis died, leaving her two daughters Anna and Elsinore. So it was more of a homage service for Mrs. Reeves Jarvis than a general one conducted in honor of motherhood. Nevertheless, this set the stage for the later Mother’s Day observances held in the honor of motherhood.

Following this, it gained a widespread popularity across the nation. The Mother’s Day International Association came into being on December 12, 1912, to promote and encourage meaningful observances of the event. Anna’s dream came true when on May 9, 1914, the Presidential proclamation declared the 2nd Sunday of May to be observed as Mother’s Day to honor the mothers.

The Mother’s Day International Association came into being on December 12, 1912, to promote and encourage meaningful observances of the event. Starting from 1912, Mother’s day began to be officially declared a holiday by some states. Anna’s dream came true when in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson declared the first national Mother’s Day, as a day for American citizens to show the flag in honor of those mothers whose sons had died in war.

The House of Representatives in May 1913 unanimously adopted a resolution requesting the President, his cabinet, the members of both Houses and all officials of the federal government to wear a white carnation on Mother’s Day. On May 7,1914, a resolution providing that the second Sunday in May be designated Mother’s Day was introduced by Representative James T. Heflin of Alabama and Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas. It passed both Houses and on May 9, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made the first official announcement proclaiming Mother’s Day as a national holiday that was to be held each year on the 2nd Sunday of May. He asked Americans to give a public expression of reverence to mothers through the celebration of Mother’s Day.

In 1934 Postmaster General James A. Farley announced a stamp to commemorate Mother’s Day. The stamp featured the famous painting “Arrangement in Grey and Black”. The painting was a portrait of the mother of James Abbott McNeill Whistler, an English artist. It was brought in to the United States as part of an exhibit in the year 1934.

Mother’s Day continues to this day to be one of the most commercially successful U.S. occasions. According to the National Restaurant Association, Mother’s Day is now the most popular day of the year to dine out at a restaurant in the United States. The occasion is now celebrated not so much with flags as with gifts, cards, hugs, thank yous and other tokens of affection. While many countries of the world celebrate their own Mother’s Day on different days and at different times throughout the year, there are some countries such as Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Australia, and Belgium which also celebrate Mother’s Day on the second Sunday of May.

Today, Mother’s Day is a day honoring mothers, celebrated on various days in many places around the world. It is the day when you acknowledge your mothers contribution in your life and pay a tribute to her, often with flowers and gifts.
