More decentralization.

Things I’m Up to and Interested In

Big news: Vitamin D reduces autoimmunity.

Disgusting name: Milck

Troubling: The cognitive impact the pandemic response has had on children.

Where I have I heard about these foods before?: “We find that the top sources of priority micronutrients are organs, small fish, dark green leafy vegetables, bivalves, crustaceans, goat, beef, eggs, milk, canned fish with bones, mutton, and lamb.”

Interesting tool: Wood splitting sword.

Question I’m Asking

What happens when the neural implant or bionic eye you install goes obsolete and the company who made it goes out of business?

Recipe Corner

  • Wonton soup.
  • Carrot soup. I would use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock, and perhaps omit the carrot juice.

Comment of the Week

“I’ve made my husband (and best friend) of 44 years a handmade card and tomorrow night we will dress up and go to a Valentine’s Day Dinner & Dance featuring big band style music. He will write me a “Daily Sweet” email as he’s been doing (daily) for almost ten years.”
