You can act like you are today’s equivalent to an ancient Greek philosopher, shunning all television viewing in favor of deep navel gazing and other pursuits of bettering oneself. Me, I’ll gladly tell the karate instructor to shove it up his rectum and just go watch a new episode of “Family Guy”. I have no problem with Low Brow. I don’t pretend I’m going to train myself into a Super Ninja Survivalist Princess. In the same vein, you can pretend that your body is a temple and you only drink coconut juice and range fed beef. I’m going to eat mostly healthy, take a vitamin pill to make up for all the green salads I’m not eating, and eat as much sugar as I please. The more exercise you get, the less sweets your body actually craves. I don’t worry, because I balance and try to achieve all things in moderation. I say, stock the heck out of sugar for doomsday eating. All that damn wheat you are chocking down, a bit of sugar ain’t gonna hurt all that much. But what do you do when that runs out? I don’t stock all that much not because it is bad for you or because of the cost but because I’m seriously running out of storage room ( and that is after burying ). The answer is malt. Malt is butt simple. Take your wheat and sprout it. Dry your sprouts ( DON’T dry sprouts to preserve them as vitamins. You need to eat fresh to get that benefit ). Take the dried spouts ( you are using the whole piece, not just the green part poking out of the kernel ) and fine grind them. This is malt, your natural sweetener. Use one quarter teaspoon per loaf of bread.

Now, don't you feel better when you write (and post) everyday? That's not really a question as I know the answer. This is what we want from you and I need my daily fix. How to, and how you's (just made that up but you can use if you like), low and no tech, and of course a touch of pol-com.ReplyDelete
It occurs to me that now is the time to harden the pit. If it still has a wood roof then it won't be very defensible; if the wife's family is still there and living for free then put them to work. This does not apply if you plan on fleeing to property number two when the ball drops.
Put them to work? That is funny as hell. I offered to pay for the roof and insulation for the cab-over camper for an emergency winter room if boyfriend would dig the pit. I even started to dig, doing most of the work several feet down. Has he done anyhing in three months? No. Needless to say, the offer is no longer in effect.Delete
So are you expanding the B POD? Or was this new digging for the outlaws to have a space to live?Delete
Digging a new hole. I might still keep at it, not sure. The ex will need a place to stay in the winter, not sure if I want a literal roommate. If I do, I won't drop in the cab-over. Just a wood structure so I don't have to dig as deep.Delete
Cool; didn't know that about the malt? A few bee hives are an option, but of course this assumes some sort of support ecosystem (flora and water). This serves a quad purpose, the honey being a highly nutritious food, anti-allergen (Some say this is false, so verify beforehand?) an antiseptic (Sugar as well) and the wax for post apocalypse candle making and other wax needs. Honey keeps well, and it is said that honey found in the Egyptian tombs in modern day was still edible?ReplyDelete
I've seen the stevia plans for sale before, though I do not know which zone supports them?
Try to keep the sugar consumption in check James. Processed sugar is really bad for you, essentially being one of cancers favourite foods, and as such, the excess of to be avoided as one gets older.
I probably do eat a little much, but I'm not sure if you'd classify it as excess.Delete
Once you get that malt you are half way to wheat beer . . .ReplyDelete
And we all know what Ben said about beer.Delete
I'm liking the new format for your blog. Little small nuggets distributed out over time. Good stuff.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Not sure why it's working this time after I tried it in a similar vein over at the old blog.Delete
