That way you won't produce any more disgusting spawn!", complete with all kinds of vulgar language and graphic bloody description of how she should kill her child. I'm sorry if I go against all the posthumous Darth worship going on around here but that is just not funny. That woman was in tears and I was left trying to explain to her that Darth is just that way and that she should ignore him and that he really doesn't represent the way this community acts. She never came back. [SNIP]
    I am aghast and did not know. He must have toned himself down recently. That is awful and I should have realized there was more to it than the posts I'd read.

    He did tone down recently, but then there was that MMA thread where he kind of backslid. I'm not sure how it is he lasted on the forums so long, honestly. Some of the stuff he used to post was pretty grotesque.

    I'm sure he thought he was being funny. I'm inured to it after years of the interwebz. I can see, however, how a forum newbie would be taken aback by it.

    Still waiting for sexy pics

    I started reading through the very looonnnnnggggg blog post on 'safe starches' on Livin' La Vida Low Carb. It's fascinating and people's responses equally so!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    All this talk about palak and saag paneer has officially triggered a serious Indian food craving. Hmmm. Now to convince the rest of the gang at home.

    India is on my "before-50" list. And I've heard the same thing, some people love it and others would never go back. I've been to several places in western and northern Africa (Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Senegal). The trend being places where they speak French as that's my second language. I feel like my time in Cairo has prepared me for India. Cairo being a microcosm of intense beauty and horrific ugliness and poverty.

    I've also been to Israel about 7 times, and I highly recommend it. I'm going back next April again. It might have something to do with being married to an Israeli. but it is beautiful and lovely, especially the north and the Dead Sea.

    I also miss Japan. Kyoto specifically. I might even go back to Japan before an India trip, unless an India trip with friends presents itself.

    But I'm still jonesing for that saag paneer.

    Vanuatu IS on my bucket list, only coz the BEST kava I ever tried/used was from there, the powdered raw root. I'd ship a army bag full of the root to myself back in USA when I 1st landed, spend the rest of my time snorkling & spearfishing for my meals & lazing on the beach I guess. A guys gotta dream, right? As for cookin okra for ya', will it be available in San Diego end Sept/early Oct when I come by to, among other things, make the least slimy okra dish I can conjure up?
    Yep, like Mark said, someone does get a warning first.
    The powdered kava root doesn't hold a candle to the freshly ground stuff. One of the few good things about my Vanuatu trip.
    Let me know when you'll be here. I have spare rooms. You will have to cook for your supper though.

    That was only one example off the top of my head. He did that kind of thing all the time.

    I think there are safe starches as far as not causing major reactions but i don't think there are safe starches if you want to lose weight. Oh and about the sexy pics, ask and ye shall receive. Not a bad set of gams for 50. No?

    Well today was the official kick off of the August Challenge and I had a great day. I unglued my behind from this chair and got out and ran sprints today and laid out in the sun.

    I am also taking this Challenge as an opportunity to track all my food again to see if I can maintain continual ketosis. Then I am going to start cutting back my seizure meds and see what happens. N=1.

    Dinner was yet more of the generous neighbors' zucchini, this time stuffed with ground ostrich meat mixed with onions, tomatoes, spices, and pine nuts. Turned out pretty good. It got a little bit dry on top and would have been better cooked ten minutes less.

    You are looking great (on the couch and in your avatar as well).

    I now purposefully avoid your thread until about this point each day, because I've cut out breakfast as a bio-hack 20hr IF (I FEAST in about an hour). There's no point having a growling tummy through the workday.

    How did you find the Zuchinni? When they get to that size they are really marrows. We grew them a few years back (when we were in the North Island and could actually grow things like them) and really liked them smaller. We went away for a week and came back to a jumbo fellah like that. It didn't make good eating.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Thank you.

    So sorry for messing with your IF. <evil temptress chuckles>

    I think the zucchini are better smaller too. I think these monsters were ones hiding under some leaves that were left to grow too long. They tasted good but the skin was a bit tough.

    Your new pics are so beautiful.

    And you dinner looked pretty tasty too!
    Stuffed zucchinis sound good, it's been a while since I've made them.

    I can't wait to get this head thing done so maybe I can be able to MOVE again without my intracranial pressure getting whack and the world going sideways on me!
