Dave Owens, The Garden Guy: Fall herbs for cooking and medical needs

Planting an herb garden is going to do a lot for you besides add tasty ingredients to your food. Herbs can help heal many of the problems that ail you. For centuries, farmers, gardeners, herbalists and scientists have grown and developed herbs to help people feel better. 

They are a source for vitamins and are still used to a great extent in Europe and Asia. A list of common plants and herbs that can help are Aloe for sunburned skin, Calendula for cuts and burns (steep petals in boiling water, then soak a compress in the liquid). Garlic to cure a mild cold or sore throat (drink a mixture of crushed garlic cloves with hot water. Parsley, mint tea, peppermint and lemon balm are others to consider. 

To get herbs to grow healthy, plant them in a white 1 or 5-gallon plastic bucket in organic soil. Place the potted herbs in an eastern exposure where they will receive morning light and afternoon shade. Fertilize your herbs with a light dose of extreme juice every 3 weeks or so. Our water has a lot of salt in it so when you irrigate, makes sure the water flushes out the bottom of the pot."

Curt Whipple: 3 reasons your 401K could ruin your retirement and even your life!

1.  When you really need the money (as in emergency) the government takes up to 55% of what you take out

2.  Your employer decides how you can invest your money by deciding what investments you can choose to invest in

3.  You end up paying the IRS more in taxes by having the 401K then you will save by contributing

-Alternatives (Can depend on age of investor)

1.  Roth IRA - you pay the IRS a small amount of tax and you keep to keep the ALL of your money tax-free!

2.  LIRP (Life Insurance Retirement Plan) No limit on how much you can put in and it all comes out tax-free!

-Important to plan properly or could end up like Willie Nelson and Gary Busey bankruptcy court and IRS Problems
