While I agree that the piracy on the internet is out of control (though I do sympathize with the people whole think things are overpriced so they get it free through a torrent instead of buying it), it's out of control. However, I think that PIPA and SOPA are not the answer. They're overkill. I see it this way, in an analogy. There's a wild pig running around, destroying gardens and maybe even threatening people. Instead of going after the wild pig, the authorities decide that every pig needs to be destroyed because of that one.

If you think that these bills won't affect you, you're wrong. If they are passed, we can kiss YouTube (and similar sites) goodbye. Social Media will also be severely restricted, if not entirely wiped out. Online gaming (which does not affect everyone, but there are a lot of us) will also be negatively affected. And last, but certainly not least, Web TV will be destroyed as an industry. I don't know about you, but I like a lot of the Web TV shows I've seen. They're creative, fun, and (most importantly) something other than the cookie cutter shows that are on Cable/Satellite TV.

44 Days of Witchery: Day 11

Witchy tools: oils

I have a soft spot for Lavender Oil. Not Essence of Lavender Oil, but the real thing. Before I say anything further, I am not a doctor or qualified in any way to give the following information. If you choose to follow this advice, it is at your own risk. With that said, everything I am about to say I have tried on myself and believe it does work.

Lavender Oil is a multi-use item. I've put it on as perfume, and headaches have lessened in severity. I've put it on mosquito bites to relieve itchiness and redness, and it has worked. I've put it on burns, and it not only helped the pain but the burn itself healed faster with no scar.

Like I said earlier, you want actual Lavender Oil. Essence of Lavender Oil has at least one ingredient that will not help a burn. In fact, it will make the burn worse. I would assume that it would do the same for a bug bite.
