    • Guess I did my carb refeed last night. Granola (pretty pure stuff, out of Switzerland), full cream milk but I shouldn't have had the sugar. But damn it was good!

        Yeah but "carb refeed gone wrong" sounds a hell of a lot better than "binge". I think I will have to borrow that phrase, next time bad dietary things happen to me.

        • I've been finding peanut shells in my yard and in my gutters. I figured out which neighbor was leaving them out by watching a crow fly from their backyard with a peanut shell in its beak. My engine light came on this morning and I popped the hood - peanut shells and droppings on my engine block. I'm pretty sure I'll be purchasing some new wiring for my engine harness. Again.
          (I did go over to the neighbor and ask if they feed the animals/birds. Yes, his wife does. I told him politely what I found and what I've been finding and he said he would talk to his wife and he thanked me for bringing it up.)
          It would be super great if I could have a break from spending piles of $$ on repairs. Please.

          • One of my hens is a rooster! I woke up this morning at ~4:30AM to the distinctive "cocka doodle doo" and said to my hubby - hey, listen, one of our neighbor's has a rooster (even though we all have horse property, I'm pretty sure I'm the only one w/ chickens) and was a little excited that I'm not the only one. A few minutes later I thought "oh sh*t - I think we have a rooster" - the chickens are only 3 months old - so not quite mature yet. I went out and had a talk with my "girls" and sure enough, one of them is strutting and wearing a much larger "crown" than the others.

            • Mud Flinger: Separate him from the egg ones and breed chickens. That way you'll never need to buy more of them.
              In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                • Planninga road trip from our home in WA to Astoria, OR (yes, this is a Goonies related trip) and realised I can only bring as much fruit as we can eat in the three hours to get to the state border . Grr.

                    Depends on where he lives. Most urban chicken farmers can't have roosters. In which case- fire up the grill!

                        • I've decided the rooster is a good payback to my neighbors who love to blow off fire works late into the night for weeks around the 4th of July (they've been at it for over a week now). We don't get much rain in CO in the summer and amateur fireworks cause lots of fires. I can probably keep him for a while atleast as we are an unincorporated part of the county. I just don't like to be one of the "rude" types of neighbors. I would love to keep him and breed our own chickens for food...

                          • I would really like to spend my money on upgrades instead of repairs.

                            • I am with you. I recently tried a vegan diet for 6 weeks as a diet/nutrition experiment. It had nothing to with saving any animals. In that six week period I could not get enough protein without eating a ton of beans (CARBS!). I had no energy for my workouts and my skin became dry and my scalp developed red dry itchy bumps. GROSS!!! (Maybe that was my punishment for doing vegan for the wrong reason.) If vegan is the new hope we are doomed! I have been doing PB for 2 weeks and I feel completely rejuvenated and the red scalp bumps are gone.

I was told last night at a gathering of friends how my paleo ways will kill me, and that vegan is the new hope for humankind. The fact that I did the pure vegan path for six months seems not to account as experience to these two people who just started.

                                "If you didn't feel great as a v*gan, it's because you were doing it wrong." I heard that a lot in my stint as a vegetarian. Luckily, I never made it more than a month or so (?) as a v*gan, as that was the point when I'd start fainting or experiencing numbness in my legs and arms. If that's the "new hope", I'd rather wallow with the heathens.

                                My gripe: I'm too impatient to CAREFULLY read instructions when using a new product. In my haste to make all-natural Jello (plain gelatin w/pureed fruit), I read the package wrong and used 1 envelope instead of 4. It did not set (duh), so I ended up with 4 cups of reddish purple slime that sloshed out of the pan when I removed it from the fridge. Looked like a scene from Aliens.
