    Hahaha, I'm loving the banter!

    I'd have to agree with you @drezy I've always been attracted to men that made me laugh. I guess when men started wearing clothes they had to develop actual personalities to compensate for us women not being able to see the last turkey in the shop :)

    I'm now slapping more on my feet, particularly the soles before grounding. :)

    There it is. This goes out to you, @Sean Waters , @Mito1, and all our silent brothers dealing with this out there:

    I didn't try the soles! Good idea!

    The burden. THE BURDEN! I'll say a prayer for y'all tonight :)

    So 2 days of Iodine & Ghee on my body before sun and my skin is tanning. I have big giant freckles on my hand that weren't there before.

    Kids freaked out when I rubbed some Lugols on them. Literally sat and cried for 20 minutes #couldhavehandleditbetter

    But yeah! I'm excited. Not going out in the sun without my trusty mix now!

    LOL! A new future psychological condition was made right there: Iodinophobia!

    Checkout today's cooking setup at my place:


    No need to check the emf on this solar oven. It cooks at 250-300F. In the past I've made sweet potatoes, sesame oil & ginger lamb chops, borscht. I'll get a picture when I get down my solar fryer too. That thing had a pan up past 425F last I used it.

    I'm pleased to say my boy was happy for me to apply Lugols on him this morning at 7am provided I put it on in the shape of a SPINOSAURUS! He's dinosaur obsessed. I can happily report that my spinosaurus looked pretty damn good despite, you know, applying it on to his tummy whilst he was standing up with only the top of the bottle.

    A spinosaurus!

    Couldn't get my daughter to comply.

    I love the deeper tan that I'm getting on my arms.

    @Sue-UK my face didn't like the DHA mix. I started to break out pretty bad. Whenever I consumed fish oil internally I always got pretty nasty acne. (I've had acne since I was 15). Only just recently gone away apart from the two times I was pregnant and I'm not keen on it coming back. I've been consuming a lot of honey recently in chai tea and I'm noticing my skin get bad again.

    The sun is out on the East coast of Scotland on Monday and Tuesday so get this, we're actually going to the seaside and staying over so we can get more sun on the Tuesday. We are that family chasing the sun now! :)

    I've got hold of the full study of Topical DHA accelerates wound healing in rats and activates GPR120. In the wound healing with it, pro inflammatory mediators come in the first phase, followed by anti inflammatory, so my n=1 could because I don't have a tendency to acne, (had it briefly in my teens, still remember the boy at the school dance who told me my spots weren't so bad in the dark :rofl:). The study on the rats wouldn't have accounted for sunlight either .... It could also be the GPR120 connection that is working for me, I'm connecting some big dots with that for my own n=1. "Its role as a fatty acid receptor was first noted in the intestine, where GPR120 mediates the effects of fatty acids to control the secretion of the incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide 1. Taste sensing is yet another important function attributed to GPR120, as it is highly expressed in the taste buds in the mouth and acts in concert with GPR40 to differentiate the palatability of medium and long chain fatty acids. " I'm still going through the study (having to look up what a lot of the terms mean, I could be a while.:confused:.)
    From wiki
    G-protein coupled receptor 120 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GPR120 gene.
    GPR120 is a member of the rhodopsin family of G protein-coupled receptors. (GPRs).
    GPR120 has also been shown to mediate the anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing effects of omega 3 fatty acids.Lack of GPR120 is responsible for reduced fat metabolism, thereby leading to obesity.
    Additionally, GPR120 has been implicated to be involved in the ability to taste fats.It is expressed in taste bud cells (specifically cell type II, which contain other G-protein coupled taste receptors), and its absence leads to reduced preference to two types of fatty acid (linoleic acid and oleic acid), as well as decreased neuronal response to oral fatty acids.”

    Eating loads of seafood isn't getting me the response I want, so I'm hoping that going in through more than one surface, and optimising light will give me a better neuronal response and turn up the volume on the gene.

    If I get a teenage break out I'll let you know. :)

    Thanks for that, Sue!

    I'm interested in continuing with the hack - Omega ain't cheap for one - and seeing. TBH I'm quite sure the honey is exacerbating my skin but chai every morning has been my saviour with the giving up chocolate lark. :)

    I realise the caffeine in the black tea in the chai blend is not good. Once the bag is finished I'm getting off the stuff.

    I present to you the Zero EMF solar fryer:


    At 9:30AM with a UV index at about 4 this thing will boil 8 oz of water in 2 minutes. I ad to be juvenile and see how long cardboard lasts before exploding in fame too -- 3 seconds. I can't wait until the solar noon index of 12 coming later today.

    Since the morning deep fried hot wings (I have a deal with my boy that every 3 CT & sun sessions = one crap food choice) and sausage peppers & onions :

    I put some emu oil in coconut oil and applied liberally - my face broke out.

    yesterday I put MB in ghee ........ I guess I will buy some iodine....

    Oh.my.god. You're like a mad scientist! :) Love it!

    I like that you've got your boy doing CT. Even if it's got conditions attached :)

    I'm planning on getting the MB at the end of the month. Applying it topically though... won't you turn a bit blue? It's a stain, right?

    The iodine is giving me a lovely Oompa Loompa look :)

    I'm off to do my CT in the bath now. THIRD DAY RUNNING! So proud of myself :)

    I haven't turned blue ....not that I have noticed tho! my fingers can get a bit stained - I am a bit too enthusiastic when mixing!

    congrats amazing Emma on the C/T ....are you using the appropriate swear words?

    Sersiously C/T is somehow entangled with vocalizations one would normally make at a strip club of their choosing. Maybe there is something deep there that could make good webinar material later.

    I feel like I'm cheating really. I'm still building up to it obvs so my bath water is about 58F and I'm sitting in it up with just about covering the top of my thighs...with 2 jumpers and my hat on :) I'm a long way off the ice tub right now. But yeah, plenty of fucks!

    Haha, every time I'm in the bath now I'll automatically think of strip clubs! There's a first :)
