Linky, slinky links.

Imagine Lovely Lentilla, in a long white nightgown, holding a flickering candle exploring a dusty, spook-riddled attic.

Ah! Oh!  No!  Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

Yes, there are many memories languishing in the corners of turns of phrase and jokes and the sudden recollection of a golden field stretched out before her.

It has been fun listening to her squeal.

And I do hope you like the links.

Traditional Diet Paradox I

So even if I am still well toilet on the internet, Lentilla finds things and I read them.  Over and over again they write about paradox.

Many many paradox are written about and I intend to explore further but one goes a bit like this…

Ah hah hah, argument’s scarecrow, you say vegetarian diet is good but these peoples here ate mostly BLOOD and MILK and they were healthy!

Also goes another one…

Ah hah hah, argument’s scarecrow, you SAY we need to eat animals but these peoples here ate mostly YAMS and they were healthy!

I see…

There’s the peoples who, before they ate flour & sugar, had beautiful teeth and good bones and were healthy and they ate mostly YAMS!

There’s the peoples who, before they ate flour & sugar, had beautiful teeth and good bones and were healthy and they ate mostly cattle BLOOD and MILK!

There’s the peoples who,  before they ate…   you see where I’m going with this?

Not really much of a paradox.

Do I smell coconut?

CoconutsFor a while now Lentilla and I have been looking for a source of organic, cold-pressed coconut oil.  We’d just about given up, but yesterday, while Lentilla was having her birthday massage, her little rabbit nose twitched and, clever girl (she’s not as silly as she looks) asked … “Do I smell coconut?”

And here it is!  Organic cold pressed coconut oil.  $15 a kilogram.   We’ll crack it open shortly and cook something with it.
