{Theresia Cloister - Theresiaklooster in Meterik, The Netherlands}

Last year, when visiting The Netherlands for Mom's 90th Birthday and Mom & Dad's 65th Wedding Anniversary, our sister-in-law did drop off this local news paper at our VacantieWoningPardoes
In which the Theresia Cloister in Meterik was published. That's where I got my 3-year education in Fashion Design in the mid to late sixties of last century.
This is the link from the HALLO Horst aan de Maas: Straatnamen:Theresiastraat Meterik ←just click it.
Streetnames: Theresiastreet in Meterik, a little town within Horst aan de Maas.
So that's where I went for 3 years, on my bike...
It was the February 19, 2014 issue.
There is a book titled: history of the little sisters of Saint Joseph - For the least of Mine by Gabriella Dorren.

Fond memories of this Theresia Cloister, where also our Great-Aunt used to live, before I even went to this Fashion Design school. The sisters had a kind of a nursing home for the elderly. It was my Paternal Grandfather's sister.

Interesting piece of history...

{Allergies? Try to Avoid eating Sugar}

Deborah Enos is a Health Food Spokeswoman and she did point out the affect of sugar on allergies so I want to share with you.
TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF
Fending off spring allergies
By Deborah Herlax Enos
FIFTY MILLION Americans suffer from allergies.
I have spent the majority of the sprig season indoors and out of the line of fire. After years of dreading spring, I decided to fight back.
Here a few tips that have helped me.
Irrigate. Your nose, that is. Nasal irrigation is a part of one's daily routine in India and Southeast Asia. Look for a neti pot (looks like a little teapot) or nasal saline spray.
Take a shower. Pollen can really accumulate in your hair and on your skin. I find that if I take a shower before bed, my sinuses are clearer, making it easier to sleep.
Avoid peak pollen times. Stay inside from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you exercise outside, do it early in the morning, when pollen counts are lowest.
Shampoo your pet. Pollen can cling to your pet. Get a spring haircut for Fido and wash indoor/outdoor pets often. Keeping your pet out of your bedroom and off furniture can also be helpful.
Start cleaning. Do a thorough cleaning or, better yet, pay someone else to do it. Windows, screens and furnace filters collect mold and dust throughout the season, which can provoke your symptoms. 
Go on an anti-inflammation diet. When you are suffering from allergies, your nose is already inflamed. Avoid eating foods that will cause more inflammation, such as sugar. (This is a good incentive to cut back on your sugar intake).
Limit your dairy intake. Many doctors believe that dairy products increase mucus production, which can agitate and provoke allergy symptoms.
I hope you find these tips helpful. Make sure you consult with your physician before starting any new health program.
