        Apparently I made up a word. Inbix. I kind of like it.

        • The 'Posts" label, under the 'Join Date', on each post is constant, at least on yours. It's 252 from page 1 to this page, 31. It must be the total number of posts which is constantly updated. But that can't be right because it's been the same number for several days now. Unless you mean some other number. Let's forget it, anyway. It's sure not critical. Just that all the current political bru-ha-ha wonders me.

          How did last night go? Please tell.

          • Crypto..I show 306 posts. Each time someone posts, the number reflects that. Maybe refresh your screen?

                • Hey Sol et al;

                  Back from trip. Very fun and enjoyed students but very very tired. Just had a two hour nap and I almost never do that.
                  I was thinking about what helps me get sleepy and I noticed someone suggested reading cookbooks.

                  There might something to that. I often will read the stuff "between the recipes" about the culture / food prep you find in many cookbooks, most common in ethnic cooking as background information. It's not too exciting but interesting to know, and it is one thing I do "downshift" before sleeping. Maybe spend 15-30 minutes on that--kinds of ingredients / pantry items often found in cookbooks either in index or intro which is also informative but not too thrilling. Good way to improve cooking knowledge and slow down at the same time. Some of the stories many writers tell about where they were when they tried the recipe, who made for them (travel style cookbooks) can also be really a good choice for relaxation before bed. These are easy to get at the Library so you aren't spending money. Maybe try that. Bring a backpack and the lads need never know what you are carrying. . . so what did you do this weekend anyway, now that you are over a month sober and things are looking up?

                  • Glad you had a good time blue.
                    Love reading the recipe thread on here.
                    Didn't do much over the weekend(money).
                    Did go over to see my dad who is a fantastic cook. He made me a primal breakfast. He was shocked when I told him not to cut the fat off the bacon. I had to help him up when I told him it was ok to put butter in my scrambled eggs

                    He asked me what I had done with the real sol. Who are you?

                    • That's a big question. You might not know who the real sol is for awhile, but it sounds like he's surfacing, doesn't it? I really think the "no sleep" thing is linked to that somehow. It sure was for me anyway. Don't know if I've found the real blue yet either, but must admit it is an interesting journey just looking.

                      Aren't scrambled eggs with butter amazing? Wait till you are mopping out the cooled bacon grease with a finger--then the pleasure of grok-living really kicks in. Fat-free sucks and always has

                        I sent years avoiding fat. Some of the lengths and methods I'd use was beyond normal.
                        Hope you get what your looking for blue.
                        Buttery eggs are lovely. Took my dad to a supermarket and when I bought some butter he told me I had been missing out on real food for years. He even phoned to remind me to use it.

                            • Hey Sol,

                              I remember reading a theory about curing insomnia caused by jetlag. The theory was that you needed to reset your circadian rhythms by going forward rather than back. So rather than trying to fall asleep earlier - you try and fall asleep later each day until you have gone around the clock to where you want to be.

                              So if you are falling asleep at 7 -8am, the idea is you make your bedtime 9am (or later). You don't even try to go to bed before then. Then the following day, move your bedtime a couple of hours later (yes you will be sleeping during the day, and up at night). Maybe 11am. Repeat a couple of times more and you will suddenly be going to bed at a 'reasonable' time, at which point you stop.

                              So you make your awake period longer each day, rather than trying to make it shorter by going to bed earlier. This is supposed to make it easier to get to sleep, as you are more tired, but more importantly it works by extending your circadian rythmn rather than trying to contract it. And the theory has it your body copes with this more easily (I am sure we have all heard the theory that traveling across time zones one way is easier than the other).

                              I haven't tried this myself - never had the luxury of not having to go to work for a few days to test it out. No idea if it would work for you. Maybe see if you can research it and find any evidence?

                              And stunning work on going a month without booze. Congratulations, it is heartwarming to see someone having success.

                              • Thank you, Sol and Little Vase, for making that deletion.

                                Now I'm wondering why God told Moses "not to eat the fat of the meat". They sure had grass fed meat. Most Jewish dietary law has some reason to it, even if it was an ancient reason no longer applicable.

                                Sol, you haven't said how last night went.
