Benefits of MCT Oil

By Joan Clark For decades, athletes have been using a secret weapon to help them increase lean muscle mass and decrease body fat. MCT, or medium chain triglycerides, are a type of fat that you find in palm kernel oil, coconut oil, and numerous dairy products, that your body can quickly absorb. The quick absorption and digestion can provide you with numerous MCT oil benefits that include improved cognition, weight management, and heart health among others. Using MCT oil regularly can be beneficial for those who might be struggling with poor digestive health, low energy, hormonal imbalances, obesity, Alzheimer’s, dementia, slow metabolism, inflammatory conditions, and diabetes. The health benefits gained from consuming MCT oils regularly make it an increasingly popular […]

connected with the cosmos

I have published several articles here regarding the function of the hair growing out of our heads (search this site for “hair”). There is more to it than most understand. History is replete with examples of warriors losing powers when shorn, or retaining inexplicable senses with their long hair. We long-hairs cannot quantify differences nor can short-hairs know what they are missing. A few days ago one of those unaccountable things happened to me. I felt an urgent need to take both dogs for an off-leash walk up the road; something I NEVER DO. I tried to rationalize the urge away, but then let it take me to the far side of the road (because the off-leash dogs went there) […]

figuring people out

We tend to consider people in our immediate world through the lense of who we are, what we feel and how we act. Surely everybody is kind-of like we are. Sometimes, however, you find yourself dealing with someone who just isn’t doing what you expect, or reacting in ways that don’t make sense to you. That is probably time to consider they really are not so much like you are. Here is a little review of what psychologists today call “Antisocial Personality Disorder – APD.” ——————————————– Both sociopaths and psychopaths have a pervasive pattern of disregard for the safety and rights of others. Deceit and manipulation are central features to both types of personality. Contrary to popular belief, a psychopath […]

shell people

A granddaughter moved in with us after failing to thrive in The Big City. We were close to her Mom’s last hope. It was going well, we thought, but were recently smacked upside the head that our great little community and wonderful resources were not enough. We involved adults were of the same mind, landing like a ton of bricks on this ungrateful truant. The girl’s world was shrinking and tightening incrementally as previous sanctions failed to deliver desired results. In retrospect: If what you are doing is not working, “do more of it” is not really the greatest plan. But that is where we were headed. Until a couple of wonderful Darby resources turned a light bulb on in […]

news potpourri

I have an accumulation of interesting articles and links that just have not been given the time and attention to become complete posts here. It is time for some house-cleaning of those links before they get old. Here is the down payment on that project. More later. TTFN ———————————————————————————— FEINSTEIN ASSAULT WEAPON BAN OF 2019 [EXPLAINED] This horrible harpy is back with her favorite project: preventing honorable people from defending themselves from dishonorable, totalitarian governments. The Armalite Rifle platform (AR-15, AR-10) is now far and away the most popular design in the USofA with hundreds of producers offering every quality and option anyone could imagine. Interestingly, its use in crime is almost unheard of; statistically near zero. Protecting us is […]

Think your weight loss program is behind?

The failure to achieve our desired weight/fitness goals can be debilitating. I have known some who simply gave up. Mobility, vigor, physical competence were all beyond their reach … ever. They just gave up. Well few of you have as far to go as Kasey King. Look at your situation and imagine that you started losing weight at 700 pounds and are already half-way to healthy. Or give up and head towards matching him. I turned a corner when faced with switching my entire wardrobe to XL. NO! Where does that stop? I revolted prior to becoming revolting… dropped from 220 to 180. Still 10 or more over ideal, but close enough to remain active at my advanced age. I […]

phone weapons

In yesterday’s post (screens are killing kids) I touched a bit on the damage cell phones are doing to kids. The study I linked to did not place the blame on the microwave cooking of brain cells. It left open many other possibilities. However, looking around the unfettered Internet finds stacks of evidence that is mostly suppressed in USofA lamestream media.   Today I take you a bit deeper into the subject with three links and several graphics. There is A LOT more information if you go looking.  Almost none of it is good news for cell phone users.    The Hidden Dangers of Cell Phone Radiation George Carlo, PhD, JD, is an epidemiologist and medical scientist who, from 1993 to […]

screens are killing kids

Easily seen with personal observation, there are numerous downsides to this sea of adolescents living in the palms of their hands instead of the beautiful big world they plod through. They can be surrounded be people without a single human contact. As Jerry Mander documented in 1991, the environment we grow in changes our brain’s structure. For those who need A STUDY before they consider the facts, here is a new study. It’s official: Excessive screen time irreversibly affects kids’ brains, study finds Published time: 11 Dec, 2018 06:34Get short URL © Pixabay / asderknaster 3736 Parents’ worst suspicions about the effects of too much screen time on their offspring have been partially confirmed by the preliminary results of a […]

heal thyself

I have been pushing the old body pretty hard in anticipation of this day. While I know it officially begins with the Winter Solstice on Friday, December 21, 2018, my activities shift to winter mode when the ground becomes frozen and unworkable. Today, November 30th is that day. While Intellicast.com and the National Weather Service are often incorrect, I’m not betting against this particular prognostication. It feels about right to me. Game over for new construction, yard improvements and anything that involves moving dirt. Temperatures consistently below freezing also make outdoor work a lot less fun and inspire me to limit my hours outside protective shelters. This day where I shift from outdoor to indoor modes came a little later […]

the dark side of 5G

Last year, 5G came to Darby, Montana – population 720 For most of the summer expensive equipment was operated by a dozen or more transient workers at remote-from-home duty stations with food and lodging included in the cost of each well-paid technician. WooHoo! We have fiber-optic high-speed cable Internet. I celebrated reliable unlimited Internet along with everybody else around here. I drove past the cable crew around the county week after week after week wondering how in the world do a handful of us pay for this? I shrugged that question off as I went about the rest of the business I call “life”. It was some obscure grant from somewhere… for the children, of course. But now I am […]

how many strikes before GMO is out?

I won’t buy it.  Ever. Anywhere. For me, fasting beats eating poison.  “But shopping for non-GMO and organic is more expensive. “ Nice trick, globalists. Promote someone-else-pays health care, then rig the market to make everybody sick. Great takedown of civilized society.  Of course “they” don’t eat this junk themselves. That’s just for the peasant class … which is everybody else. Today’s news from ActivistPost.com is about what is in your “less expensive” potatoes.  One Potato, Two Potato, Three Potato, Four How About GMO Potatoes No More TOPICS:Catherine FrompovichGMOGMO Free DietGMO Toxins NOVEMBER 13, 2018 By Catherine J. Frompovich What’s the main selling point of the GMO potato? Its flesh stays white and doesn’t oxidize when cut. It doesn’t turn green, brown or […]

Hobo Stew

A couple generations ago jobless, homeless individuals roamed around, mostly hitching rides on railroad trains to seek better opportunities somewhere else. World-wide, nation-wide it was lean times, but that didn’t stop their optimism that it might be better somewhere else. The men who hitchhiked around the nation scrounged for survival and in their hobo jungle encampments often shared their own edible tidbits into a communal pot to create hobo stew. It is that sort of eclectic, varied collection of news stories I share with you today. While coming down home stretch, I am still mentally and physically focused on getting the last few pre-frost, pre-winter outdoor projects completed. I can’t take the time to turn these clips into full-blown, linked […]
