    On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln gave a short speech that still grips our hearts.



    Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

    Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.
    We are met on a great battlefield of that war.
    We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.
    It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
    But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
    The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.
    The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

    It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

    It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before usóthat from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotionóthat we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
    This just makes me wanna cry for where we are now...

              Small boy is hot stuff *nods*.

              A family is driving down the motorway when - whoosh - something small goes past them on the inside lane. A bit shaken, they carry on driving when - whoosh - something small, blurred and incredibly fast overtakes them on the median strip. Very shaken, they decide to get off the motorway before one of these mystery fast-moving objects hits them. They come off the motorway at the next exit and decide to continue their journey on quiet country roads. Ten minutes later...whoosh - something speeds towards them on the opposite side of the road. They see a sign for a farmhouse B&B and decide to pull off the road altogether. Perhaps rest will help.

              The next morning they are talking with their hosts. The farmer explains that he's been experimentally breeding chickens: 'You see, we love a roast chicken, but there were arguments because I like a leg, my wife likes a leg and our son likes a leg - so I bred three-legged chickens.' The family are amazed! They all like the legs too. 'This is great - what do they taste like?'

              'I don't know,' the farmer replied.








              'We haven't caught one yet.'

              • I think food sensitivities are part over exposure and part genetic predisposition or a genetic screw up. I am the youngest of four. None of my siblings have any sensitivities but I do to wheat and casien/whey in all dairy including goat and sheep, which is unusual. My GI doc thinks I have celiacs but since I am not willing to eat gluten for an extended period to find out, we do not know for sure. The genetic screw-up for me? My mom had lupus, had an active flare up while she was pregnant with me and I was almost a month late. They did not figure out that she had lupus until after I was born. My doctor thinks I have some autoimmune issues but my tests are inconclusive, which is normal. It can take 2-10 years to diagnose autoimmune disorders from what I have read. Now add the fact that gluten, whey and caseins are in most processed food that we eat three times a day and you have people with various levels of sensitivities.

                Today was my 19th wedding anniversary. In celebration of that and the beginning of Dungeness season, I made a yummy cioppino ad we ate it all. Tons of crab, scallops, clams and mussels in a spicy, garlicky tomato broth. I am ready for bed. Good thing he already got his anniversary happy ending!

                    Well that is damn lovely! I'm not sure you have your own journal Val, I don't think I've seen it. But I don't think think Joanie will mind me hijacking to say that's plain old great and congratulations!

                      I don't have a journal but I should start one since I am always hijacking Joanie's or Grizz's.

                      Thank you for the congrats. It has been a mostly fun time!

                      • Grizz has a journal??? Is it called 'paint it with iodine'?

                          • No Grizz journal but he has a thread on Obamacare that I have spent far too much time on. Signs of iodine poisoning are delusions and confusion and I am fairly certain he is majorly overdosing.

                              Beans vs beef. I once did a spread sheet to determine how many calories youíd need from various foods (I didnít include gelatin or whey powders, just animals and plants) to get 86 grams of protein. I wonít bore you with the whole chart, but for 95/5 ground beef, youíd have to eat 546 calories to get the 86 grams, and for kidney beans, youíd have to eat 1302 calories to get that much protein.*

                              So, when Veggie Times says to bring on the beans, Iím guessing that theyíre in the ďwe only need 37 to 50 grams of protein a dayĒ camp.

                              *Also, can you imagine the flatulence? Itís bad enough when one runs a spouse out of the room, but when pets leave, Houston, we have a problem.

                              I did my whole meal plan thing this morning while I drank my coffee. Then I remembered that Iím getting three pounds of shrimp in my grocery order. The best laid plans of mice and men. I think Iím just going to do a boil, let them cool enough to touch, squirt them with some lemon (have three pounds of those arriving also), then dip them in melted butter.

                              I really wish Thanksgiving would get here. I want to get hammered. Maybe I should just catch a nine day nap Ďtil then.

                              When I was in college, I used to do nap dieting. Whenever I felt like eating something stupid (which was mostly on the rare days I had neither work nor classes), Iíd slip into bed and take a nap. It worked great.

                              I should read more on food sensitivities. I have a theory that excepting those with which we are born, food sensivities (not allergies) could possibly come from over- or non-exposure. But I want to read up and see if thereís any research on this.

                              I know Iím obsessed with food today, but thatís because Iíve been hungry since 3pm, but didnít want to eat that early. Coffee helped, but itís still in the background. Iíve got water coming to a boil for the shrimp. Nothing fancy Ė just a little salt, lemon, and cayenne pepper.

                              I ordered/received a green called Tatsoi. It looks like bok choy, but I googled and it is different. I tasted a green leafy part raw (I usually hate raw greens) and itís pretty good. One of the nicer raw greens Iíve tasted. Iím sure it will be awesome stir fry.

                              OMG, can you imagine the parades here when this catches on? We have Mardi Gras which is awesome, but a huge clusterfuck. And for St. Patrickís day, the people on the floats throw whole heads of cabbage into the crowds, which I suppose is better than tossing sauerkraut on us. WTF are they going to do for World Toilet day??

                              Mondayís food: Coffee with coconut oil and butter. A couple of burgers with chopotle salsa. A pound of cottage cheese with two teaspoons of basil simple syrup stirred in. About half an oz of old pork rinds that were sitting on top of the fridge. 118 grams of protein. Yesss.
                              Vegetarian Times... have a gassy azzed New Year....

                              I'll take beef or pork, or chicken over beans any day...

                              You have to wait till Thanksgiving to get hammered? Who knew! I will be at my Mom's, and their is no alcohol in her house, so no hammered doc for Turkey day...

                              Tatsoi is one of the greens I grow for the resturant... I tasted some today.... tastes like grass to me... but then again most greens taste like grass to me... but I eat the crap anyway.... I also grow mizuna for them.... it tastes like grass too... grass, like the kind you walk or lay on... not the flamable kind....

                              Men's noses are bigger for more o2 for their brains.... that little bugger is an o2 fiend!

                              promiscuous moms have sexier sons.... well THAT explains ALOT.....
