Re: Tips on using food to improve immune response and survive Covid-19

My opinion is that you don't have to be vegan to get outstanding results :bigthumb: Nathan Pritikin proved that you can eat up to 1-1.5# of meat a week as long as you keep the saturated fat very low. There are even Pritikin classes that teach you how to cook delicious food, and they take blood sampl...

Re: Window AC converted to central, pics of temporary duct( page 6)...AC would not shut off- season 3

Contact relay got welded from spark. Had to call repairman again :mrgreen: (me)
Sanded the contacts - should be OK, but i admit, it is the 30 yr old one from the 1st central. Maybe someday i'll go 1st class and use new parts :D

Re: Eating broccoli greens 3 times a day!

I tried broccoli sprouts when I was much younger. They tasted like burned rubber. If I were to grow sprouts to eat they would NOT be broccoli. that is how i got these seeds. i tried sprouts, not impressed. so, one day when i got bored, i planted 100 seeds, thinking they would die outside, but they ...

Re: Eating broccoli greens 3 times a day!

I'm quite surprised that i like these greens so much :shock: Way more than broccoli. I just can't eat broccoli very often. But the greens i like them 3x a day :shock: A month ago once a day was enough, but i seem to have developed a taste for these greens, over about 4 weeks. (i'm eating 5 meals a d...

Re: Re- transplanted 14 broccoli

So i'm actually eating the broccoli greens to extend time between trips to the store. FL is on lockdown, even the beaches are closed. :shock: NSB has 3 covid19 cases total so far :roll: So i moved 14 plants to hopefully a better location where the heat is not as bad and the dirt is maybe better.

Re: Commission wars- E Trade and others drop to $0 and stocks DROP- hornets in the garage!

Remember the guy that returned from vacation and found a hornets nest in the garage? He used a torch to kill the hornets. While a success, the fire spread and his house burned to the ground :oops: This is similar to current gov safety policy. Yes, closing down the economy will stop the virus. But th...

Re: Commission wars- E Trade and others drop to $0 and stocks DROP

Looks like a new Great Depression coming.
Closing stores for 100% safety is crazy. All they need is a greeter doing a temp screen. Send home anyone with a fever.
Same with schools. Have bus driver check temp. Don't take kids to school with a fever.

Was a punishing week. I felt like a prize fighter going round after round, only to get knocked down every day. On Wed i "missed" my chance to get GEO 13.31 at the close. Thurs it opened in the mid 11's :shock: but my order went unfilled. Circuit breakers stopped trading for 15 min. I cancelled the o...

Well, this was sure an exciting week :mrgreen: Most everything is iffy due to the expanding pandemic virus scare :( i could think of only 1 immune to the virus on my list. CXW CoreCivic.

Re: planted Red Malabar Spinach -, planted 100 broccoli seeds direct, transplanted 14 broccoli

So i found a better spot near my back door which only gets sun in the winter as no leaves on the sycamore tree. perfect for broccoli which cant take the summer heat. moved 14 over in 45 min. only room for 6, so they all d...
