For example, because if you know me at all you know I love my analogies, say you have a leaky roof (regular repairs to body tissues or from working out). You also just took a big pay cut. Are you more likely to build a whole new, stronger roof, or patch what needs fixing cheaply now, pinch in other ways (use stored body fat) and save for future emergencies (slowed metabolism) or until you can get some more money?

    Obviously your body is not an accountant and I'm not a biologist, so this analogy could be totally false!

    Enjoy the party tonight everybody! Just remember, alcohol is combustible and so are you!
    Thank you! I think coupled with Dave's explanation, that makes sense.

    I love me those holidays that combine alcohol with driving home! Makes me feel so safe and patriotic. I'll be splitting a cab to and from the fireworks with a neighbor. It's walking distance, but no matter how you go from here, you pass through a sketchy neighborhood.

    That cupcake is priceless and I'm glad the spelling on that bunghole place is liquours and not, well you know....
    Thank you also! My brain was sort of thinking, "energy is energy."

    I think in the South we spell both as "likkers."

    I tried using salt but got too impatient, so I use Body Ecology starter culture. I've also fermented other veg with it. Fermented sweet peppers are wonderful, too!

    RR, I use a fido jar and I keep one large cabbage leaf and press it down on the kraut. (Fido jars are the ones with a rubber seal and a wire clamp lock-down glass lid.)

    There's a scientific study done by Lea Harris, the final results of the different jars she tried is here: Sauerkraut Survivor – Final Report | Nourishing Treasures

    She reports that the cabbage leaf w/ jar to hold it down didn't work, but I used the cabbage leaf in the fido jar and it worked great. The leaf itself got a little, ah, icky around the edges, but that didn't affect the kraut at all. I also used starter culture and I think Lea just did the salt brine method. I just can't wait 4-6 weeks for my kraut to be ready... using a starter culture, my kraut is ready in a week, and gets better with time.

    I've also used the air-lock fermenting jars and those work good, too! I have clay half-circles to keep the veg submerged. Great recipes, supplies, and info articles here: Cultures for Health

    Fourth of July post a day late

    In this space, I had written a whole long thing I needed to get off my chest because a 69 year old friend of mine has gone practically vegan. But just writing it helped, and it would mostly be boring to others, so I'll just post the pics for yesterday.


    Because lately, babies dressed as food make me go, “Awww…”



    How accomodating!



    I only bought six.
    I went away for a month.
    I came home to this.




    So much wrong in one little package.

    Peace, love, and scary gnome haiku,
    J
