Sitting short in ZSL over the weekend

No real reason, other than the fact that all of the "good" news may be out, and Iraq/Ukraine hopefully will be contained. Plus, every time in the past 6 months that I was in AGQ at a pause, hoping for a further rise, I got killed. Assuming that the trading range is 19-21 and that we're at the top of it, until some real movement starts.

Good to hear you'll get air

Good to hear you'll get air soon. Dehydration over protracted periods is harmful. Go for it. :)

Who's dehydrated?? My running water, filtered through a Berkey anti-fluoride, is just fiiiiiiiiine :)

Knock back about 3 gallons a day. Don't forget hoss --- I'm running 5-10 miles a day in this heat too, though early as possible of course. So I'm way up on staying wet inside.

Because I'm primarily

made up of anti-matter, all this talk about 'lets leave

the aircon on 24/7 darling', and drinking posh water

all the time has me running in the other direction.

People know I'm ever-so-slightly eccentric, but especially

now that I visit the mini market every day at 6.45 pm -as

this is the time to check out newly-issued out of date stuff.

Usually it tastes exactly the same to me as the normal in-date

stuff, and I just dont get why they lop about 75 % off prices.

In fact, I used to despise shopping so much, I'd buy so much

stuff that what was in date when I bought it is about 3 weeks out

by the time I get round to eating it, so by eating newly out of date,

Im actually eating fresh - so to speak. What has the poor check-out

girls puzzled though, is when I pitch up at the till with 27 pots of

apricot yogurt, and 7 packs of smoked salmon etc. Yesterday it all

did go slightly pear shaped though. I thought I'd cornered the market

by buying 8 packs of outdated crab sticks, but opening the first pack

this morning, I discovered that they were all in fact carrot sticks.....

Right

On to business. 5 weeks now of xtreme dieting resulting in

19 % weight loss. Remaining 81 % of cells solely composed

entirely from mature fish, and extra ripe organic fruits .

Time to treat myself to a little bling, especially considering

I didnt have anything waxed this month. First up, a full new

set of imperial (AF) Snap-Off sockets and wrenches. Secondly,

going all round the engine bay of my 5.3 Cabriolet, replacing

every rusting bolt with gleaming new Allen-heads instead.... :-)

to Lord H - Dangers of all fish diet

LH,

Ok, dieting is fine, but eating nothing but tinned fish may not be a good idea:

https://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/2002-11-04-fish-1acover_x.htm

I remember reading an article about some yuppies who ate nothing but fish in restaurants and who came down with mercury poisoning.

If you are eating fish to get more DHEA, it's better to take fish oil supplements - they are free of mercury. A much safer source of protein is whey powder.

Probably small sardines are relatively safest. Much better than tuna.

Mighty quiet around

Mighty quiet around here.

Anyway, here's an interesting article regarding corn. Corn has been in a downtrend for two years now, and still likely to go lower. No need to be in a hurry to pick a bottom. As the saying goes, big crops get bigger.

"An average price in the year ahead near $3.75 would be consistent with similar supply-consumption scenarios of the recent past. It appears that the market has already priced in an average yield of at least 170 bushels."

Going Long Indian Corn

Hi Art -

My nutty Rastafarian foody friends and others are begging me to raise Non-GMO food. That's about nearly impossible based on what it takes to grow non-crossed (open-pollenated) corn. BH has a stand of Wades Giant Indian Flint Corn (63 seeds planted) that is about 8-10 ft tall now. I've got my own hybrid sweet corn and thousands of acres of Round-up Ready Frankenstein maize to worry about, so I am trying to put bags over the silks just forming and covering the tassles too, saving the collected tassle pollen to apply to the silks when they start growing out. I got the technique from seedsavers: https://blog.seedsavers.org/preventing-gmo-contamination-in-your-open-pollinated-corn/

Baker Seed Comany corn- https://www.rareseeds.com/wades-giant-indian-flint-corn/

As you can imagine, this is a really rotten job to do; best performed in the cool of the morning before the NYSE opens, when I am most hung over from the previous evening meal shared with the neighborhood orphan and misfit men, ranging in age from 27 - 72 years old. Yesterday for the first time ever, I ate the flesh of a poisonous beast, a four or five foot timber rattler, sporting eight rattlers, still writhing with vigor (JFK I still miss you), after an hour separated from its head. It did not taste like chicken, but was very white, clean, chewy meat that had to be gnawed off the ribs. A texture like squid, maybe best served in the dark of a new moon night. I didn't know MO had big rattlers like that. The hide is 6-7 inches wide at the fat part. Back to corn news...

This is the best crop summer ever around here with nice rain and sun in balance. Barring being hit with a dirty bomb, (Gallows humor and a hat tip to AM, who says today is the peak of the violence cycle, with two bad weeks ahead. Possibly, BH will build a potato gun, with multiple PVC barrels like a Gatling gun, aiming to shoot the Village Idiot as he continues to stalk my corner of the world.) this corn harvest could set a new record.

I need non-GMO feed. That takes at least a 10,000 acre buffer of farmers signing on to grow it at much higher costs/bu. Everyone should read the report, recently re-released after passing muster in three rounds of scientific pier reviews about the health impacts possible from GMO food. And before any of you neo-cons and end-time zeolots start hyperventilating, "Science" is not a naughty word. https://www.alternet.org/food/major-study-demonstrates-monsanto-gmo-corn-product-can-cause-damage-liver-and-kidneys-and

GMO corn caused tumors and kidney failure in a two-year lab study( Prof Gilles-Eric Séralini and colleagues) that has been suppressed by Monsato et. al., until now. Incidentally, it affected males at a higher rate. Monsato ran a 90-day test and prolly fudged that data in the first place to get their crap seed and chemical monopoly to market.

There is a large and growing demand for non-GMO corn. Maybe low corn prices could influence farmers to plant a higher value crop. Maybe land prices will fall when the their GMO-corn prices take a dump. Who knows?

@BH

Good luck with your OP corn. Thats a lot of hard work. If you are in a corn growing area, then almost all the commercially grown corn around you will be GMO. (Roundup Ready Bt)

Morally bankrupt

Just read the intro (below) to a post sanctioned by Turd on Pain Street. You will be hard pressed to find a more intellectually degenerate piece of conspiracy mongering on the Internets.

And to think Turd kicked Rico off his site...

MH17 and MH370: What are the Odds? And What's the Fallout?

By stephanie | Friday, July 18, 2014 at 1:50 pm

How often, in the past 40 or 50 years, have we heard about a Malaysian airplane going down? And now, we've had two in the past six months. What are the odds?

I'm not the only one who immediately entertained the thought that MH17 and MH370 are, in fact, the same airplane. One goes missing - it is still not found - and then a mere months later, another Malaysian plane mysteriously flies over military airspace in one of the most contentious hotspots in the world and gets shot down.

Now it looks like we may have the sparks for WWIII.

re morally bankrupt

SSK couldn't agree more, when I saw that yesterday I found it absolutely disgusting, made me question why I even visit this site (though usually for PTC). Absolutely pathetic, really embarrassing and bordering on insanity. I went to the comments expecting to see comments such as yours, was shocked that all that I saw actually seemed in support of the post.

The Truth

The art of the morally bankrupt always fetches a high price right? Or does truth sell?
