Omega 3 supplements I'm giving away [Sep. 19th, 2016|02:49 pm]
Shinnewn
Hi folks,

I purchased a bottle of supplements after finding moderate evidence (from reliable sources) for Omega 3s to reduce joint pain. Let us simply say my body will not tolerate it; I have no reason to believe there is a problem with the supplement itself.

So, free for the asking:

Brand: Jamieson
Product: Salmon and Fish Oil Omega-3 Complex soft gel capsule
Per pill dose: 1,000 mg
Bottle contains: 196 capsules
Formulated with: gelatin, glycerin (does not contain gluten, lactose, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives)
Expiry: October 2017

Posted in multiple locations. First come, first serve.

Babble Brightful Boo'ful Beable, I stealed your meme and I eated posted it.
10. What’s your favourite piece of jewelry?
The amethyst pendant my great-grandmother received from my great-grandfather as a pledge he would return from WW I alive and well and wed her. Which he did, even though he was a sapper, one of the most dangerous assignments.

23. Do you own slippers?
Um, I own these sort of terrible but warm things I made out of a sweatshirt.

34. Best toy as a child?
My parents bought me a Unicorn....stuffed animal, but still, THE BEST. Also a Barbie Van. Also a Crayola Carousel. Also, my brother's Lego. Also, a Charlie's Angel van Matchbox car.

40. Does someone trust you?
With what? Do you have something specific in mind? Do you have a tasty sandwich? Can I hold it for a minute?

41. What's your favorite movie?
The Princess Bride has remained in the top five for a long time.

43. What’s your favourite sports team?
Ew! Seriously, Seriously, Ew, Ew. (I <3 U, SARA!) (I understand The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon is not a sports team, I just don't care).

44. What song do you want played at your funeral?
Blackbird, as covered by Chris Colfer.

Answer for question 4525. [Oct. 9th, 2015|03:24 pm]

How does fall/autumn rank in your list of favorite seasons? What things do you enjoy most about it (cooler weather, Halloween, etc)? Do you like the array of pumpkin spice items available this time of year -- what's your favorite?
The region I live in does fall right (and has a horrible winter). It's gorgeous. Halloween is my favourite holiday. My birthday is around this time. I enjoy Pumpkin Spice lattes not wisely but too well. So over all, Fall is awesome for me.

Answer for question 4410. [Jun. 15th, 2015|04:41 pm]

What were your favorite books growing up? How did those influence your choice of a favorite genre when you got older?
When I was growing up, I lived in military housing in a foreign country, so there was no viable TV. My parents responded by flooding the house with books, and we also received books as gifts from my grandmother back home. My mother's mother was a British war-bride, so from my Mum I got a lot of Enid Blyton (particularly Secret Seven) and Beatrix Potter. My grandmother gave me the complete Narnia series and Anne of Green Gables.

These books gave me a taste for fantasy that continues to this day. I developed a love for good world-building, and I loved the characters so much they felt like friends. In fact I still call certain beloved book characters "book friends". While today's book-friends now number among them Miles Vorkosigan and Hazel Grace Lancaster (for example), they still include Anne, Susan, Lucy, Peter and Edmund.

Hi folks, I am still alive and stuffs! My Dad sent me this song and I like it so much had to post it. He's always been a big music fan. When we were posted to Europe he had a sweet stereo and was the local transfer-your-LP-to-tape, make-cool-mixes guy. So I'm not really surprised when my 68-year-old Dad hears new music before me. Yay, my Dad! Here it is:

"White Washed Walls" by Canadian band Yes Nice:

Also, this may be the most adorkable thing I've seen since Hank Green and Felicia Day performed together. It's the Good Mythical Morning show with Rhett & Link in which Link learns to dance to attract women according to science. Yeah, it's one study, I wouldn't exactly call the evidence robust (I don't really think R&L think it is either) but the video is funny.

Frankly, I am finding so much win on Youtube these days that I am starting to think about going to VidCon. Yay Youtube!

A breakfast recipe made of plants [Mar. 10th, 2015|07:37 pm]
Shinnewn
Hot Fruit Win

2-4 Apples or pears
Honey or maple syrup or agave syrup or or or
Dried fruit (I use cranberries; raisins, cherries, blueberries, chopped apricots or figs all sound workable)
Oil (I use canola, you could use sunflower or a spray like Pam)
Seeds (I use sunflower and flax seeds; use what you got or leave them out, they add crunch but their're not critical)
Water or milk substitute or apple juice
Quinoa, one cup, dry
Spices (I use cinnamon and nutmeg)
A wedge of lime or lemon or bottled lime or lemon juice

Start your grainy thing according to package instructions (one cup before preparation). They usually tell you to use water. You're welcome to do this. I have used 1 part water and 1 part almond milk; it got rather foamy and dramatic looking but worked.

While that is cooking, spray or add oil to a pan. Chop the apples or pears (you're going for pieces about the size of the top knuckle of your thumb, or twice that if you like things chunky), add to the pan. Add a squeeze/teaspoon of lemon or lime juice, as well as honey or syrup to taste. Sprinkle with spices. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a suitably sized bowl (think salad or mixing bowl), combine hot grains and hot fruit. Add as much dried fruits, and seeds (if available/desired), as looks abundant to you. Serve hot, or cool to room temperature and place, covered, in fridge.

A dinner recipe made of plants [Mar. 10th, 2015|07:14 pm]

As I may have mentioned before, apparently we are supposed eat plants. Leafs, seeds, fruits, roots, such like (not bark). I promised Beable I would post.

Savoury Salady Thing

1 Butternut squash or 2-3 medium/large sweet potatoes
Oil (I use olive, you could use canola or sunflower)
Dried fruit (I use cranberries, you could use raisins or chopped dried apricots or chopped figs)
Seeds (I use sunflower and flax seeds; use what you got or leave them out, they add crunch but their're not critical)
Water or Stock of your choice
Grainy thing, one cup, DRY (I have used freekeh or quinoa both with good results; cous-cous would work too)
Dressing of your choice

If using butternut squash:
Pre-heat oven to 350F. Cut the squash in half length-wise. Remove seeds and stringy bits. Cover the cut-side with oil. If you have a pastry brush, awesome; if not just spoon some on until the surface is coated. Sprinkle with salt. Coarse salt is nice. On a baking sheet covered in foil, place squash cut-side down and bake for 45 minutes.

If using sweet potatoes:
Wash sweet potaotes. Pierce flesh of each several times with fork or knife. Place n a baking sheet covered in foil, and bake for 45 minutes.

Then:
Make your grainy thing according to package instructions (one cup BEFORE preparation). They usually tell you to use water. You're welcome to do this; I tend to use low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock.

When both the grainy thing and orange thing have cooked and cooled to room temperature, chop the orange thing. If you're using the squash and you have a melon-baller, that thing is great for scooping out squash from the rind. If not, scoop with a spoon. If using sweet potatoes, chop. You're going for pieces about the size of the top knuckle of your thumb, or twice that if you like things chunky.

In a suitably sized bowl (think salad or mixing bowl, this is makes three-soup bowl sized servings at least), combine orange thing, and grainy thing. Add as much dried fruits, and seeds (if available/desired), as looks abundant to you. Cool in the fridge, covered. When you're ready to have the salad, add dressing of your preference to taste. Or make mine:

3 parts olive oil
1 part white wine vinegar
0.5 part dijon mustard
0.5 part honey
Black pepper to taste
