I Am NOT Buying The Claim That Vegan Men Are Best In Bed — No Way.

I am going to keep this above the bed sheets (never mind the gutter) and only dispute this based on solid, scientific facts.

Veganism is NOT backed-up by human evolution. I could, at this stage, just say ‘QED’ and be done. But, some of you may not understand or appreciate.

We are here, per evolution (that no one in their right mind) denies, because of the survival of the fittest. Our fittest ancestors were meat eaters. Simple as that.

We became HUMAN because our ancestors started eating meat and chewing bones to extract marrow. Eating meat gave our ancestors more energy — a given amount of meat/marrow being more nutritional than the same amount of plant-based edibles. You still see that today. Herbivores have to eat more.

So, very simple. Our ancestors at meat, had more energy that enabled them to provide the necessary ‘fuel’ for their ever expanding brains.

Our ancestors had sex. If they didn’t we wouldn’t be here.

So, I am going with EVOLUTION. It has a proven track record.

I will now say QED.

My ‘Cholesterol Risk Factor’ Has Turned NEGATIVE; My Doctor Has NEVER Seen That!

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

I know one thing for a fact, it is NEVER good to have something your doctor has never seen before.

So, this, from, what I can see can’t be good news. Doctor, however, is not worried. My cholesterol numbers, other than this CRAZY negative number, are passable.

Yes, they have come down from last year. SMILE.

What does it mean?

The risk factor is a multiplier.

You multiply your average risk of heart disease by this risk factor.

So, let’s say that my chance of getting heart disease was 99%. And doctors have always said I was a heart attack waiting to happen.

Now it is -99% — whatever that means.

Am I worried. Heck no. I know I am going to die. So, why worry?

Yes, I changed my diet, quite dramatically, on March 8, 2019 — the day after my knee surgery.

Yes, I still eat meat. I eat more meat than most people, even Donald Trump. I eat meat every day, at least for one meal a day. I am a born carnivore. Better than I used to be. Yes, I eat more fruits and vegetables than most too. SMILE.

I also take a ton — nah, that is an exaggeration (let’s call it ‘quarter of a ton’) of Metamucil. OK. No jokes. I take about 9 teaspoons of the ‘sugar free‘ a day. That is supposed to be fair dose of fiber.

Yes, I still drink my ONE LARGE (maybe borderline huge) glass of slightly diluted red wine. I do NOT function without red wine (and something else — but that is NOT fattening).

Cut way, way, way back on cheese. Sigh.

Cut out nuts altogether. That was another huge sacrifice too.

Also no more oatmeal. More Metamucil in its place.

I exercise some. SMILE. Around 7.5 miles a day of walking and maybe 20+ on a stationary bike. Also, on average, climb the equivalent of 51 floors a day. Much more on most days — like 80.

I will be HAPPY to share my diet and exercise regime with any of you.

I eat a LOT. I kid you not.

But, I don’t eat bread, rice, pasta, chocolate, cake, muffins, bagels, donuts, cookies. Yes, TWICE a month, when we are eating away, I MIGHT cheat and eat what is leftover of Teischan’s ice cream. There is a reason for that. Ice cream does help my digestion. But, that is the only time I eat it. There is plenty in the house if I wanted. But, I don’t. I don’t cheat on my diet because that is cheating on myself.

OK. Another confession. Since my surgery I have lost 26-pounds. I am hovering at 150 pounds. If I manage to lose another 5 that will be as think as I have ever been in my adult life. In 1983, on a starvation diet and tons of running, I got down to 145 pounds.

So, that is the story.

Yes, There Is Indeed A Camel, At “Camp David”, In Alton, New Hampshire.

June 16, 2015 post with pictures.

2017 Pictures. Click image to access.

Yes, I have seen it, briefly. I meant to stop and take a picture but that never worked out. Deanna has seen it too. I can’t be 100% sure whether it is a Dromedary (one-hump) or a Bactrian (two-hump). I was driving when I saw it. There might have been a Llama or something else with it.

Why am I talking about a camel in Alton, N.H.? It is, even for idiosyncratic Alton, a bit unusual to have an animal associated with hot, dry, waterless deserts in 10′ of snow Alton. But, the reason I am talking about it was that somebody was SEARCHING for it on the Web, and this blog tends to popup on Search Engines anytime “Alton, NH” is mentioned — as it should.

The Camel is at “Camp David” on Route 28, outside of Alton (towards the Barnstead side) — and maybe a mile or so from the turning to ‘Prospect Mountain High School‘ (PMHS).

“Camp David” is a kind of enigma as this post highlights. The amount of work that was done on it has abated.

But other than some unexpected animals — including cows — you don’t see much.

Yes, I do know a LITTLE about it. It is the work of an ex-Alton selectman — whose first name might have been “David“.

I also think it is meant to have a Biblical David association. The ‘camp’, I was initially led to believe, was going to ‘religious’ — and that is par for the course for this area in that we have LOTS of religious camps in the Lakes Region. So “Camp David”. Makes sense — plus the owner is a David …

The Bison theme, on the sign (up top) and on the gate, amuse and intrigue me. I would like to see Bison there. I am very partial to Bison meat. But Camels and Bisons are incongruous. I don’t think Bisons figure in the normal Bible (though I have to guess them must make an appearance in the “Book of Mormon” — which I have yet to look at).

I will, now there is an interest, stop and get some pictures. Deanna has lost the ‘fancy’ (and kind of expensive) Olympus ‘point-and-shoot’ I got her before we went to Arizona. That means I have to use my Canon T3i to get decent pictures. But stay tuned for the Camel in Alton, New Hampshire.

Misguided Sri Lankan Buddhist TRY To Blame Animal Sacrifice To The Earthquakes In Nepal!

To be fair this is from the lunatic, Ann Coulter wing of the misguided, extremely insecure extremist Buddhist faction.

The Himalayas — and as such places like Nepal — have major earthquakes BECAUSE of plate tectonics in that region. How do YOU think the Himalayas got pushed UP that high in the first place.

Trying to blame this on animal sacrifice is just plain wrong and crazy.

I am, of course, NOT into animal sacrifice, BUT given that I eat meat, of all types (without restrictions), multiple times a day, most days, I can’t be a hypocrite.

Moreover, all Buddhists are NOT, by a long chalk, vegetarian. So for a FEW Buddhist to take this ‘holier than thou’ line is disingenuous. When I was growing up in Ceylon (pre-Sri Lanka) over than 70% of the Buddhist monks OPENLY ate meat. I know BECAUSE I kept track — at the frequent alms givings that I attended. I was always like that. Keeping track of this stuff — and funnily enough some of the monks knew that I kept track of who ate what.

The earthquakes in Nepal, including today’s major quake, is a great shame. I, an Everest buff, am VERY FOND of Sherpas. But, like them (I hope), I am a realist enough to appreciate that earthquakes, in this instance, real does go with the territory.
