    I'm fortunate enough to have a local place about a mile from my house that has happy-hour on fresh gulf oysters 3-6PM Mon-Fri. Only 75cents/oyster, either raw or chargrilled in garlic butter. I usually eat quite a few of both kinds and take full advantage of that deal. The waitress is always a bit surprised when I just keep ordering more plates of oysters and never get anything else. Well, occasionally I get some steamed royal red gulf shrimp too but they are way overpriced. And their wine is pretty cheap too, half-price bottles on Wednesdays. But everything else on the menu is overpriced crap and a waste of time. You just gotta know what you're looking for. ;)

    Shucking oysters also gets a lot easier once you have done it a couple hundred times or so. Well worth it. Need a good oyster knife and a towel. And practice. That's really it.

    No, just sautéed them in a little butter, garlic and parmesan. Trying to have a can every morning now.

    Well had a bad night, have overdone the raw ....:eek: more the whitebait than the oysters. Gonna have to give it a break for a couple of days and then go back to it gently ... It's been an interesting experiment, it's made me think differently .... Or to be more accurate its reminded me of how I used to be able to think .....I don't want to lose that again....In fact I want more, much more .... :)

    I think that is what we should all aspire too ........to want more - much more ......
    to be constantly curious and optimistic ...and never give up....

    Amazing Sue :)

    you know, i think... my mind started to open up for real when I went raw.... isn't that weird. Everything got way more intense colors too? At least that is how it felt to me...
    I still have such a long way to go - i started out so damaged (just imagine I had strong cravings for cod liver oil as a kid - we got one spoonful each morning but I would have wanted to drink the whole bottle... I think it might show how deficient I was in DHA growing up very poor on mainly carbs :oops:). But, I have to remind myself it is not where you are on the road that matters, what matters is, you are on it :) stepping forward step by step and never ever giving up, always curious

    There is something about it being raw that takes it to another level, maybe it's about the less it is cooked the less electrons are lost. Eat whilst sat on the 3 legged stool :D

    I think too .... at least for me .....I just swallow - not much chewing going on! and no washing up!
  16. I read Physics in Mind last year when it first came out. Then I reread it again about a month ago. Even better, because of the context of reading it in light of Dr. K's Blogs and these forums. Mind blowing stuff. I especially liked the discussion around Maxwell's Demons. 3-D protein folding, like lock and key. Mother Nature is one clever Mother.

    You are living what we are trying to figure out...a more direct existential approach...I am jealous of you and Inger and Peter....I do not have the courage you all have.....

    Josh, no guts, no glory. Some may not have been born with guts, but we don't have to die without developing them. Curiosity usually bring guts out of hiding at times, maybe even get them moving. But curiosity usually evaporates for most people. For me.......curiosity is my minds fertilizer. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. You have to find out what that reason is for you. Remember no question is silly if you can not provide an answer for it.
