    Of course I had to go edit that post at the same moment you replied. Editor in me couldn’t leave well enough alone...

    I'm glad that my survivor soup looks comparable. Kinda yellow due to turmeric, and a big layer of fat on top.

    I think some of that is collagen as well. I have a jar full in my fridge that giggles like denser jello.

    The beef neck was a pain to cut and get into the pot but the meat itself (forgot to add to the bowl before I took that picture) is incredibly tasty and reminded me of a really good osso buco. Yum.

    Weeksago I was hoping the "grandpa" bird that lives on my back porch would be able to stay in the game one more season. Now I'm thinking he should give it a rest, 5 is a high number of hatchlings to feed at once:

    Thanks for the mention, Drezy. I'm thinking that us older guys deserve a 'participation' trophy just for being able to hang around so long. An odd side effect of hitting my 70s is that I look at obits more often now, just to see how old people are when they pass on. My thought is almost always, "He/she was way too young to die." I will probably get more obsessive about this as my future birthdays continue to stack up.

    I'm always a fan of hearing more from you.

    In recognition of that I award you with the Golden Suspenders.

    I have creeping suspicion that one day I'll look down and whamo! My pants will have insidiously migrated, unnoticed by me, up to my ribcage. I've observed this in Western and Eastern cultures alike. Pants always get hiked up.

    I'm not qualified to have much useful advice for you over than always wear you pants 1" lower than feels comfortable from here on out. It's what I plan to do and that alone may buy you a decade.

    Golden Suspenders? Gotta love it. They may become especially useful with the development of 'old man butt' - i.e, flattened. I first noticed this syndrome at a western clothing store, where they had 'mature cut' jeans for a flat butt. Not for me yet - buns of steel, you know. The need for suspenders is approaching, though.

    Oh, is that what it is? Flat butt? I remember, though, that you're hitting the gym and getting swole.

    To be more clear about earlier statements. I was listening to that podcast about true alphas in wolf packs (not what humans have twisted the meaning of) and how it relates to pack success.

    I'll hazard a guess that, mitochondrial separation aside, I'm not the only guy on this site that'd love to try this all out along with their father. Impossible for some and unlikely for others, I'm just happy to have some proxies out there and show my gratitude.

    Every once in a while it becomes imperative for me to post something from Kruse blog up on my bathroom mirror so that I act on it better.

    Thanks to CPC 27 and the referenced video, I've summarized the following(you'll have to read and listen to get it):


    Anybody want this on a t-shirt as badly as I do?

    In the Southwest corner of my little nudist colony I just planted grapes and have my fingers crossed:

    That's a real beauty! You really will need luck from "fingers crossed!" We had massive mature grape vines along a chain-link fence and in 20+ years never got the grapes before the birds did! Don't discount Grandpa & Momma birds aren't reading your mind and guiding your strategies. The best hope, I think, is to plan to share the fruit; which our off-circadian career-life rhythms seemed to preclude. Tried netting and failed. We finally conceded the game; let the birds triumph and instead, took second place enjoying the excellent green fence cover-up every year. You will do better if you can be present just before the exact moment those perfect grape bunches ripen, or maybe serious viticulturists have some tips... This story took place in life-before-the-Internet. Best luck.

    Yeah, I'm going to trellis it up so that area can be an afternoon shaded area with a table under something like a simple pergola. Running on some wish power there.

    There is a native grape vine 20 feet away. Based on your input I now suspect the birds may eat up my sweeter grapes and I might be left with just the native ones. They haven't touched my nectarines, peaches, or figs yet so I'm not going to rock the boat and just be happy for a shaded area.

    @drezy — Will one of those commercial properties be a DDW plant? I’d invest in that. :thumbsup:

    Yeah I’m up way too late. It is what it is. :oops:

    You inspired me to go back and watch the video (will reread the post again, too). The image at 41:09 shows all those fabulous duck testicles. The T-shirt is appealing, now that I know what it is about. Any ideas about market demand for such a thing?

    I checked out the book by Hollwich ... no surprise that it is pricey (published by Springer, typical). Used at just under a hundred bucks. Dang!

    We think alike. I found a possibility to rent the material for $30. Also chapters are available for $30 here:

    There is a "Light and Sexual Function" chapter.

    By pharma study tactics: Demand has doubled! We're up to a 2 count now.
