    I think the location is particularly perfect.
    Yeah, that's kind of like the best of renting and owning.

    Random question: does MCT oil have a taste?
    Right. Maintenance is something I am looking forward to NOT having be my problem any more.

    MCT is oily (being oil and everything) but it really has no particular taste or smell. So it feels oily if you chug it straight but it does not add any flavor if you mix it in things.

    I find that if I mix a spoonful of MCT with some coconut cream first then add hot drink of choice and stir it mixes in beautifully with no oil slick on the top of the drink and no need for getting the hand blender dirty.

    So if I mixed it in my smoothie or something, it probably would be fine. Good to know. Hmmm...coconut cream might make a good addition as well!

    Sure it would be great in a smoothie. There seems to be something about the coconut cream that lets it blend really easily into anything else. Maybe because they are both mostly coconut products they just seem to "get along" well together. Once they are mixed, then you could add that to soups, sauces, stews, whatever.

    If you're blenderizing, you wouldn't need the C cream. I was just looking for the lazy person's version of bulletproofing.

    Well, today I went to Home Depot and got some of the new combo smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. By code there has to be one on each living level before I can sell the place. So, I was going up and down the stepladder with the manual screwdriver cursing the fact that I gave my Dad's power tools away already. Oh well. Good arm exercise.

    Tomorrow the buyers' lender is going to be doing their appraisal of the place. So, things are moving along.

    Also tomorrow I am going to meet my new landlords in the evening and hopefully get a chance to take down some room measurements so I can see what is going to fit (or not) where.

    I turn 51 today. Wow. That year went by fast. I just had my 50th on the Caribbean cruise ship a couple of weeks ago it seems.

    Some friends are going to be in town tomorrow and we are going to have a bit of a celebration. I even bought some wine and coconut gelato for the occasion.

    Happy Birthday, Paleobird! And I really love a gal who isn't playing that stupid coy little game with how old one actually is, btw. Many, many healthy returns!
