Terrific Tip: Flip the bell peppers over to check their gender. The ones with four bumps are female and those with three bumps are male. The female peppers are full of seeds, but sweeter and better for eating raw and the males are better for cooking. Isn’t that cool? 


That is awesome!

if this is true this is so freaking cool

Definitely not true. Bell peppers are the fruits of Capsicum annum, and in botanical terms they are berries: a mature fruit formed from a single ovary. There is no such thing as a male or female pepper; they are all matured ovaries that contain seeds.

Yeah, not sure where the OP got this but false.

This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

You must remember when she forgets.

You lose her when you don’t notice that she notices everything about you: your use of the proper punctuation that tells her continuation rather than finality, your silence when you’re about to ask a question but you think anything you’re about to say to her would be silly, your mindless humming when it is too quiet, your handwriting when you sign your name in blank sheets of paper, your muted laughter when you are trying to be polite, and more and more of what you are, which you don’t even know about yourself, because she pays attention.

She remembers when you forget.

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and she does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

 Cancer: When you look in the mirror this week, when you look out the window, when you look up at the sky or out at the ocean, you might get so restless. When you walk through the streets of your city this week you might feel parallel worlds and possible futures tugging at you, aching in your heart, singing in your dreams. This restlessness can make your imagination so big and bright, but try not to let it distract you too much. Don’t forget your own body, don’t forget your own friends, don’t forget to go outside.
Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.

Today I learned- Beyonce is related to an Acadian fellow from Nova Scotia, so that’s cool.

Cancer’s formidable tenacity can border into supernatural when they are protecting the ones they love. It is said by the karmic teachers of astrology that those born under the sign of Cancer were chosen because of the humility, nurturing and even sacrifice they offered in their past life. Their attitude is protective instead of possessive and emotional fulfillment typically overrides ambition. Cancer people become ‘attached to the hip’ to their loved ones and ultra selective about who they let into their lives. They prefer to have one true friend  over many acquaintances, and represent one of the zodiac’s hardest signs to get to know on an intimate level. -Cherry

Oh. I see you there. Describing me eerily well.
