Roommate economics

So for 12-22-18 to 3-20-19 i used 825 kwh and my neighbor, with 2 roommates used 2301 kwh. for the winter he spent $147 more for 3 months. BUT each mate pays $600/mo so 1200 x 3 = 3600, less $147 for extra power= $3453 less water and any damage they might do (1 dented his harley) Huge increase in in...

Re: Window AC converted to central, going off grid would be really cheap!( page 6)

While i don't need to go off grid, anyone reading might be surprised how cheap they could do it. With a 1000-1100 watt central ac, it would not take many solar panels to power my house. Someday i may try it mainly as a hobby. Buy an old E car and use it for the battery back-up. 5-10 years from now i...

Re: Window AC converted to central, electric bills for the past year vs. 2017( page 6)

so the last 12 months used 3,583 kwh or $358 at .10/kwh vs. previous year 3,613 kwh or $361.30 This is the grand total, not each month! (why i like the FL mild climate) Now look at the 4 months total with resistance heat, no heat pump: 1,170 kwh or $117 total, not each month. :shock: vs 1,205 or $12...

Tomato paste on 1/2 roll-almost tastes like pizza( page 10)

So i found out tomato paste goes on like jam, and it makes a healthier snack. Tastes very good; They sell a 6oz can for .39 and i now put half in my bean/lintel dish. Tomato paste/sauce is well known for its health benefits. But the sauce they sell has all kinds of crap in it that i don't want. This...

people watching

So i'm at the produce market; it is jammed, i got the last parking space. Nobody there is obese. I buy 3 big beets with greens 4.5lbs for 1.49, and 2 broccoli .99each. etc. I'm now adding 1oz of cooked beet to my oatmeal; adds color and flavor as beets have sugar. I'd rather just eat the greens at l...

Does your DR. have a web site?

Any Dr. worth his salt is going to be on the internet. I had a web site 1999 -2013 for mechanic tips. I simply did not want to answer the same Q over and over. so i put them on the site. Why would a Dr. want to waste his time answering the same Q over and over? I have a possible new Dr. He has a sit...

Dr's often see deathly ill patients

Even the best Dr's have a distorted view of the world. To them nearly everybody is sick, very sick. I cancelled my May 18 appt. as soon as i felt my thyroid was under control. They asked why, and i said i felt good enough not to go. Back in Dec 17, my resting pulse was 113, and it was 69-72 on my la...

Re: Low fat diet as per Dr. McDougall

"The clear skin diet". I never had acne, but those girls went from ugly to beautiful, and were, before, on the keto diet and got bad acne, and were eating peanut butter on toast for breakfast. My wife has PCOS and high fat cleared up both her PCOS and major acne. I wonder what kind of condition the...

Re: The food we were designed to eat- Dr. McDougall-very low fat diet( page 8)

Thanks for the comments! There are convincing stories about healthy eating. But, many are just clever marketing. So as i learned this, i decided to look at studies said to prove it. Many studies are just that clever marketing again. So the task became more difficult. There are hundreds of faked stud...

Low fat diet as per Dr. McDougall

So as an experiment, i'm trying a low fat diet. Seems fair since i started a year ago with that high fat keto type diet. I'm inspired by those twin girls, 25, that wrote a book, "The clear skin diet". I never had acne, but those girls went from ugly to beautiful, and were, before, on the keto diet a...

Re: The food we were designed to eat- Dr. McDougall videos( page 8)

Nep another Q have you ever timed your "eat" to "poop" time? i learned this is very important! to not be too long. As, if crap stays in the large intestine too long, WASTE will be absorbed! 1-3 days is normal. shorter the better! as little as 1 day. mine is 36 hours. all you do is eat 3-4 ounces of ...

Re: The food we were designed to eat- Dr. McDougall videos( page 8)

Nep did you ever try the starch based diet? The potato is the #1 food to make you feel full. and sweet potatoes, then corn, but rice is not so good. With rice, an hour later i'm hungry. I rarely eat rice, but it is great in a soup to absorb water. And add potatoes to feel satisfied. The McDougall di...

Re: Free food for mice and they all end up dead!( page 6)

Gave it more thought. Back n the 1950's-60's there were Milkmen that delivered milk. So it would be good for business if people were convinced that canned milk was unhealthy. Everybody could buy cheaper canned milk at the store, and it would not spoil unopened, so why pay extra for fresh milk, if ca...

Re: Free food for mice and they all end up dead!( page 6)

Why does the cat video look fake? We fed all our cats cooked canned cat food(meat and chicken by-products) and they were all healthy, energetic, etc. (chopchop was the only runt) Also the bit about raw milk vs. canned milk- we fed them all canned, condensed milk. So, it instantly looks fake to me. M...
