      Re: w/c 25th

      Good evening Abbers,

      Det, I learned my lesson a long time ago about the trash thing around here. We actually had twice/week trash pick up in our old hometown so I was very spoiled. Then we moved down here to cow country & had to get used to one pick up each week, haha!
      Are you taking more than the RDA of zinc? 11 mg/day should be enough which is what a multivit would have. When you go to higher doses, they can be rough on your stomach. With a history of heavy drinking very often supplements are not absorbed properly (yes, we do that to ourselves). These trace minerals are important for our well being but not if they make you throw up

      Mick, sorry to hear about the spill on your counter tops, that stinks. I used to be very busy with Christmas business but I lost a lot of those customers & that's OK. I can't make everyone happy, can I? Ha ha. We had a tiny bit of rain today, big rain coming tomorrow which is likely to put us up to nearly 7" of rain for the month. We are already over 55" for the year, geez. I wish some of this rain would just stay to the west of us where it's so dry & burning all the time.

      Pauly, you may rethink the IP at some point. You can use it in slow cooker mode if you like. But it's great for working folks who are short on time. Wish I had one 20 years ago, LOL
      I used to go nuts getting home from work & trying to feed people coming & going on different shifts & schedules. Love the G kids Christmas pic on FB

      Pie, I love my Amazon shopping too!!! Especially since there are no stores around here!!!!

      Cyn, I don't have anything on Etsy since I shut down my business.
      Message me some idea of what you would like & I'll send you some pictures/ideas of what I have or can do for you. Thanks!
      I hope the weather stays clear & the roads safe for all your trips back & forth!

      Hello to SK, Sam & PQ!

      We bought an Amish Christmas tree today. It's going to stay outside for a while, not ready for all that yet. It's happy in a bucket of water.
      Lots to do but I'm determined not to go crazy this year ~ so she says, LOL

      Have a nice night everyone!

      Re: w/c 25th

      Aloooha Friday ABerooooskies!

      Oh my Micks toils are soiled already... no fun! on the other hand that new choochoo looks fun.

      Tree, good to see ya's, sounds like you're in crazy-mode there. deep breathing with me........ ahhhhh.

      Lav, it's weird... the first time I barfed after taking zinc i was only 10. not sure what's up with it. Thankfully I eat a great
      variety of nutrient-dense foods so I'd say I'm in pretty good shape for micronutrients and always striving for more.

      PPQ, yes I'd love to be taking coursework in things that appeal to me (mental/behavioural health and graphic design both interest me). I just
      need to get an income rolling in quickly and concentrate my efforts there for now, then start doing that in my off-time.

      Pauly, gradually change your diet and it will be pain-free and you'll get your results. guaranteed or your money back!

      ok insomniacs, fun research on nutrition and hyperthermic conditioning How Diet, Exercise, and Hyperthermic Conditioning Can Change the Expression of Your Genes - YouTube

      Lets see... today I've applied for work at 2 mental health clinics, 2 fitness clubs, a company that rents mobile offices, and a nursery!
      the nursery gig actually appeals to me... hmmmm. can't be too bummed out hangin' with the plants and shrubs outside for work.

      SK, what's the latest?
      Sam, staying in tune?

      Dad called today to discuss his will and estate with me. nothing's wrong with him and he's a super healthy 73yo but he's just doing some planning and getting it all properly documented. Still an unavoidably heavy subject to ponder as I haven't lost a parent yet. hmmmm. it's ok. I'm ok.

      off the check the veggie/wild rice soup...

      be well loves

      Re: w/c 25th

      MAE ALL.... It's the weekend!

      Mick...I learn so much reading your posts. Now I know all about St. Andrews. I think you have enough work to do without creating more. Sorry you had to go through that. Train guy will happen when it happens or you'll move on and find someone to get it done, I'm sure. I like the way you put it...Rabbits are booked for their holidays too! I've also learned a new word Stroppy, I'm going to use that! I know people it can apply to! Our weather broke today as well, only the other way. After a week of above normal temps and plenty of sunshine it's supposed to start snowing around midnight and continue all weekend. Just as well I don't have any plans. Like the Canadian Pacific train, it'll be perfect for the tracks through the Rodgers Pass. It was a great Friday even if there wasn't a card game for me to join.

      Pauly...there's been lots of Insta-Pot discussions and apparently there are forums! Seems people are split on liking the slow cooker option. You can always have both. LOL As far as the no dinner last night, I'm not having dinner again tonight. Wednesday the boss headed out to do running around and when he listed the things he had to do I added lunch. What I meant was he would stop for lunch but instead he brought back pizza and veggies with dip. Thursday we celebrated 4 staff birthdays for lunch, I picked the restaurant because I wanted steak! It was delish and I was stuffed. Then today the chef was cooking a deluxe buffet for an event tonight and he said I'm making steak sandwiches for your lunch. Christmas came early for me. He sent home 2 steaks for me to cook for the boys tonight, I'm still stuffed. So I definitely have satisfied my craving for steak.

      Pi... "Occasionally, a large piece of tile would pop loose, and I'd feel elation!" I know exactly what you mean by that statement. LOL I'm impressed that you actually tackled that. Do you think replacing linoleum would be easier? Landlord has offered to replace all my appliances but want a new floor for my new fridge and stove. I like the analogy of the grid approach and getting free of alcohol. I have used Mick's boxes to help me deal with many of my life challenges.

      TG...it might be a toss up between you and Mick as to who is the busiest! We're glad you hung onto those coattails and are thankful that you are here too. Not knowing what you do work wise, and I don't need to know, I'm always intrigued with your stories. One of these days I'll tell you all the things I think you do. LOL I've been called for Jury Duty twice in my life and got out of it both times. Parking at the court house is the pits! So when you bring HB (whoever that is) home, do you get to keep him?

      Lav...wow, you actually have trash pickup! It was a whole new learning experience moving from the city to the country and I did not have trash pickup. Did a lot of burning and made many trips to the landfill! That's one chore I'm not sorry to see gone. By the sounds of it you don't need to manually fill that tree bucket up with water, mother nature is doing it for you.

      Det...you're right, get that income coming in and then get the course work under your belt. I can see your love of graphic design becoming an integral part of mental/behavioral health. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I think it's great that your Dad is involving you in his will and estate. It can be overwhelming when the time comes and being a part of it from the beginning will make all the difference.

      Waves to Sam and SK...

      Looking forward to a peaceful night knowing I don't have to get up and go anywhere in the snow tomorrow.....PPQP

      Re: w/c 25th

      mae all....howare we then today? its pouring down with rain here strangely enough..not going detecting tomorrow got a fair bit to do ..I bought some worktop refurbishing oil yesterday ..its rubbish ..supposed to come up nicer than danish oil ...eh no!so will start the danish oiling tonight ,..but it never rains butit pours ...Van wouldn't start ..it was the key ..the remote chip in it has degraded ...so Ive got to get a new one ,and get it programmed ....a mere 158.....eek.

      so lets have a brew then....

      hiya ppqp...hows you then?Jury service?I used to be excused due to occupation but not now..no problem a custodial sentence will keep my friends in a job!!!ha ha ..ok here we go ..St Andres ..the patron sint of Scotland ...the blue and white cross flag is called a saltire ..the yellow one with the red lion on it ...its called a lion rampant as oppose to the english ones which are lions passant..St Andrews is a place on the east coast of Scotland ,the birthplace of golf ..
      so you have got a few candidates for stroppy....


      hiya det ...hows you then ?ok I hope ...strangely enough I have a keen interest in mental health and its issues..I did a course at university when I worked in the prison service ..it really did interest me ....unfortunately we are /were locking up more and more with mental health issues than crims..Cops and prison staff become carers as opposed to dealing with lifes deliberate dregs ..years ago we got rid of the asylums and sanitoriums because they were classed as inhumane ...the policy became "care in the community "another label for something that doesnt work ...so when someone with mh issues commits crime what do we do ..lock em up ..with even less help support than they got in the asylums...there you go ..my dspeech ..I wish you the best in your work quest mate ..

      hiya pauly tree lights and no deckies ? first chrimbo me n Julie spent together ...she did a lovely tree ..and decorated it ..did a great job ...wasnt so please when I chucked cotton wool all over it..I thought it looked good as snow ....ooops ..hope you have a good weekend ..

      After my wife died, I couldn't even look at another woman for 10 years. But now that I'm out of jail, I can honestly say it was worth it !

      Got an e-mail today from a "bored housewife 32, looking for some action!" I've sent her my ironing, that'll keep her busy.!

      Growing up with a dyslexic father had its advantages. Whenever he caught me swearing, he used to wash my mouth out with soup.

      A 3rd of europe's fish comes from british waters.
      After Brexit the idea is to keep our waters exclusively for our fishermen and up their quotas, so we don't have the ridiculous situation of our guys dumping dead fish because they are over the legal limits.
      Obviously the french don't fcking like it and have said they will continue to fish where they like .
      I say, fit our trawlers with machine guns and have the odd navy boat about .
      We can have another battle of trafalgar and instead of chucking dead fish overboard it can be dead frenchmen instead .

      Mae everybody,ooh Mick I like when you separate the jokes like that! Sometimes I read when I'm still tired from waking up and read them as all one paragraph then when it's not making sense have to read again and pay attention haha why do they even make those keys with a chip? Mine has it too and it's a pain in the ass! PQ,all I can say is yum and I'm jealous I had some chicken,tortilla soup packets to make for dinner yesterday,shouldn't have made all 3 cuz I ran outta room,had to change pans 3 times and ended up cooking it in a roasting pan! Turned out good though,Det,I take those Cold eeze things and they're just zinc,,haven't had a reaction yet,was reading that too much copper can cause anxiety yet nearly ALL vitamin supps have it so I just switched to a basic adult women's gummy one,its very basic on the vitamin count,much love to all and wishes for a great BF Saturday!
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Off the table no MATTER what.

      MAE ALL...

      Mick...sometimes the tried and true are the only way to go. Bummer about key. When I bought my car part of the paperwork had the programming code for the key. I was told if I ever have to get a replacement key to tell them I had the code. The cost went from $150 to $25. Never thought about prison guards and jury selection. Haha GOLF...that's why St. Andrews sounded so familiar. Used to watch many a game on the tv with my Dad.

      Pauly...I've had to switch up pots while cooking too. Looking at the dirty dishes I'd wish I'd started with the biggest one first. LOL Sounds like your weather has really cooled off.

      Snow held off till about 10am and it's been coming down all day. It's the nice fluffy stuff and the temp is only just below freezing. Looks like I'm living in a snow globe. LOL Got out early this morning for a few groceries then came home to change back into my pj's. Decided not to ADULT today and spent it watching Christmas Shows.

      Hope everyone had a great Saturday....PPQP

      Good evening Abbers,

      Running out of time today, ha ha. Busy but getting things done!

      Mick, love the ice dancing bears
      The new fangled car keys are expensive but I kind of like them. I just keep my key fob in my pocket or purse & never have to pull it out to actually use it - cool!
      I have always been excused from jury duty due to my profession & YB's too. No one wants a cop's wife on the jury. I was called down for federal jury duty one time. Had to drive myself into Philly, ugh. Spent the whole damn day sitting there until they asked me a few questions & sent me home. The case involved a person wanting to sue the Philly PD for permanently injuring his arm ~ the same arm I saw him using to open the heavy doors on the court house, ha ha. That was definitely a bogus complaint. What a waste of time.

      Det, I would really prefer not to take any supplements but you know the case with produce these days lacking essential nutrients. The homegrown stuff has to be much better, glad you are growing your own. Good luck on the job search, something will pop up. I know it's weird when parents get all that end of life stuff done ahead of time but it's actually a huge help. I was executor for my parents & everything was fairly easy to get done when the time came.

      PQ, I hope you are enjoying the snow in your jammies
      Yes, we do have real live trash pick up here, ha ha! But we also have a very cool dump not too far away & that can be fun for big items.

      Pauly, hope your day was good & your soup too!

      Hello to SK, Sam & Cyn!

      Good evening ABenooodlers!

      Mick, ah the criminal justice system here is totally in the dark ages... it's a crying shame to say the least.

      PPQ I'm envious of your steak-out! how were the Xmas shows?

      Lav, it's indeed sad how little nutrients we get even if we are shopping wisely. The veggies at the market are typically over a month old before they
      hit the shelf. ugh! growing sprouts and microgreens are survival for me as I really need every mental advantage i can get to win in the long run.
      Looking at picking up a combo 'glucose, keton and nitrogen' blood analyser for my personal bio-hacking endevours. They have come down in price thankfully
      and can provide some great info on a variety of dietary/exercise and lifestyle factors. ok I know... I'm a mega nerd

      Job poking still pokes along. gasp. not even picky anymore. Need me to tattoo a unicorn on your bum? I'm the guy! circus performer? you betcha!

      SK, where you hiding out?

      had a nice time around campfire with my uncle this eve as he played guitar.

      well, off to live chat a bit at lifering.org

      be well loves
