  1. I went to a family gathering yesterday, my wife went and picked up her 90 year old mother and her 85 year old auntie. I rode over on my scooter. It was a kids birthday. My wife's sister family, have totally swallowed the path of fear. They were all huddled together across the lawn, from everyone else, and I thought that was a good way to be there but keep their health space. I was sitting away from most, I always tend to hang with the dogs anyway, when I got a nature call went to lav, as I'm coming out I over hear a conversation going on, about how scary it is being around un vaccinated people, how terrible, it is for my wife to be driving around with her mother and aunt, and to come around children! I twisted the mini blinds open, so they could see me, and said, they are both vaccinated, how does she give it to them? Deer in headlights!! They got the I'm sharting look and scuttled off to the compound across the yard. I texted my wife, I was going home, I did not I went for a beautiful 80 mile scooter ride, out through mountains, by a couple of lakes, by all kinds of beauty to see. Well to my way of thinking. In the air, in a sun pocked cloudy type day, that is in and out of possible rain showers that never fell. Lovely day.
  2. Hey Harforc, yeah I've been reading about folks asking crazy money for AF, like $700.00 for a clone of it. I very quickly give the finger to a price like that, as when you wait, it will eventually fall from the must have crowd, and I'll get it for pennies on the dollar. I love the herd mentality, I just never follow it. FOMO, has driven new cannabis strains to stupid costs, for ages. In my post above, that guy (dabincy) is in 2nd place, on a Honda Super Cub 125 cc's!! No chase truck, all his gear, spare tires, on the scoot, he rode from California to Bar Harbor Maine, to ride back to Cali, in 10 days. Yesterday's leg #7 of 10, Hot Springs SD to Rock Springs WY, with 2- 10,000 feet elevation points, a total of 526 mile ride to the hotel!!! 67 started, I think 34 are still in it. The 65 miles of dirt roads, had riders bailing out! Some reported their scooters parts were flying off from the horrific vibrations they were enduring. 2 rides have been ambulanced to hospital care, but seem ok. Some broken fingers and ribs, I think. I love the grit these folks have!
  3. That is the fun with made up terms, I can use them how ever I want to, and if it fits my bullshit all the better.
  4. Hey Indicalicious, I'm still in rebuild mode, but soon.
  5. Yesterday was day 1 of the Scooter Cannonball 2021, was to be last year, but well you know, cancel culture got it. Just a short clip of the starting point in Bar harbor Maine. Stay upright all you crazed riders, all the way to Eureka Calif.
  6. Looks great!! I found a packet of PP in my box of dreams. I'll start 5 and we'll see what happens with them. I really only want 1 or 2, and if small structured, that would be fine for me. Again, lovely work MrD!!
  7. Hey Indicalicious, just a quick observation, about beans and getting them open. the AS's beans jumped out of the shells, in 12 hours after folding them in wetted paper towels. May have been sooner but I usually peek at 12 hours looking for the exceptionally racehorse. When I checked this morning, all are screaming for medium!! Off to the races!!
  8. Hey DukeA#1, your most welcome! I honestly, thought it was a bunch of happy hippy shit, that was sort of an old wives tale. I was learning to live with those aches and pains, and was taking OTC pain relief stuff, but the side effects of that stuff just made other issues pop up, that ultimately sent me to relook some of the hippy shit about natural living, green sprout shakes and what not. I wanted to fight it, I wanted to keep opening prepared, precooked, canned, frozen dinners, snacks. Once I realized I needed blood work, I needed opinions outside the AMA realm. I found where that article came from. Yeah, $21.00 for concentrate, seems steep, 32 ounces of concentrate will make 32 - 8 ounce glasses of juice would be like $.70 a day, for a month, just off the top of my head using Jethro Bodeen math skills, LOL! AND, you did not sit there pitting 60+ FREAKING pounds of tart Morties, so no need for tree envy, LOL!!
  9. Tart Cherry info: Tart cherries, also known as sour cherries, contain compounds, including a class of polyphenols known as anthocyanins, that help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.1,2 Research has shown that tart cherries can relieve arthritis pain, boost cognition, improve cardiovascular health, benefit endurance athletes, and target the underlying factors of gout.1,3 Tart cherries have been widely used to boost recovery and performance for athletes. A 2020 meta-analysis of trials on endurance athletes confirmed that tart cherry concentrate intake significantly improves endurance exercise performance.4 In recent randomized controlled trials, those drinking tart cherry juice had improvements in a variety of areas: Healthy older adults who drank two cups (16 oz) of tart cherry juice daily for 12 weeks had improved scores on tests of cognitive abilities, including reaction time, a learning task, and spatial working memory compared to baseline.5 In subjects 50 and older suffering from insomnia, drinking one cup (8 oz) of tart cherry juice twice daily for two weeks led to increased sleep time and sleep efficiency. Researchers noted that tart cherry juice prevented the degradation of tryptophan, an essential amino acid that may help treat sleep disorders.6 In overweight or obese individuals, one cup (8 oz)/day of tart cherry juice reduced serum uric acid concentration by 19.2% and C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) by 19.4%.7 Elevated blood uric acid is the underlying cause of gout, which is a painful form of arthritis.8 Tart cherries and their juice are naturally high in sugar. Many people prefer to avoid this sugar load and take tart cherry extract instead. In one study, taking tart cherry extract was 15.4% more effective at reducing the odds of a gout attack than eating cherries.9 A wealth of data shows that tart cherry extract can provide a wide range of health benefits. A potential new use for tart cherry extract has been uncovered. When components of tart cherry were tested on oral epithelial cells (cells that line the surfaces of the mouth), they improved the protective barrier function. Tart cherry also reduced the ability of oral pathogens to clump together in sticky white plaque that forms on teeth and gums.10 In a different study, tart cherry extract reduced growth and activity of the bacteria that are the main cause of gingivitis (inflammation of the gums).11,12 These studies suggest that tart cherry extract fights oral pathogens and may help prevent and treat oral plaque.

  10. I found air layering many years ago, when I first found Mother Earth News, from Rodale, sometime in the late 70's or 80's. Ever since then one failure after another, left me hating on it, or my poor attempts at it. When I found my cannabis hobby and realized how bad I needed to make clone's, as I had no room for MOM's. Things went well, for a couple of years and all of a sudden I hit a rooting wall, and could not get even well known cut's to root. Like WTF happened all of a sudden? I never did find that answer, lots of maybe's and could be's , but I still do not know! A month or so ago, one of the gardens I help established, came to me seeking some rope, to hang himself, as he had purchased 2 separate Gro Cloners, each one the first run, rooted all but a few sites!! He goes through their suggested cleaning, sanitizing procedure, and packs it away for while, so the new green can find their spot in the perpetual cycle. Once he set's the thing back up, he gets about half of the previous rooted cuts, enough for now....the cycle turns without waiting. He comes to me, I full fill his needs, he relates his story, and goes out to get GC2, as all failed the next try. I'm all but shut down, got space invaders for a few months. He comes to me, with sever hang dog, fighting back tears, tells me about the fail after fail attempts to root some damn cuts. I'm still sticking mine in 1oz cups, with a few pokies, in a compost/perlite mix, and keeping a solid 50% rooted. I give him another cycle worth. He gives me one of the GC's. I start to try to unlock this GC rootless wall. I found ad nauseum, huge amounts of stuff posted up about the GC, it's biofilm, it's bad Clonex, it's PH, it needs Cal/Mag, it needs steam cleaned, H2O2, Phan San, Sulpheric acid is needed.....WTF? Mind Blow!! So, I've been running this damned contraption, recording each step, recording each cleaning/sanitizing step....and still my 1 oz plastic cups kicks the roots out as fast and more with my mix. Then I remember air layering. I wonder, what is new in that world. Descriptions of the photos: The air layering pod or ALP, then my mix of vermiculite/compost/a bit of Sunshine Mix #4/some perlite/a few drops of Super Thrive and a few drops of Rapid Rooter, watered to field mix. The test branch that will be removed this winter as it's a nuisance branch now. I used the pod size to see how much bark gets stripped off. Then simple closed the pod and snapped it shut. I then zip tied it shut, as I felt that a strong storm may blow it off. Then the 2 pods I installed and now we wait. I think it will be a month or more (if at all) the rooting starts. I'll add some water once in a while, or make a IV drip line LOL! Next will be a cannabis plant, and I'm seeking out a smaller ALP for that. Have a great day everyone!
  11. Hey SPW, IMHO, that is not a coir issue. I just read the EPA sheet for that root stimulator is 5/20/10 it is a starter solution, and it is made for outdoor use, so it very potent. Outdoor plants have no saucers, so it drains away, and can not build up to toxic levels, like indoor plants can/will. It is not made as a stand alone fertilizer for indoor gardens. It's almost like the roots start eating at 5/20/10 levels and then go down to 2/2/3 feeding ratio. Or a bit like salt chemicals are very potent, when compared to, organic's with their soft touch feeding for roots. I know that is not an exact analogy, but sort of. CNS does not need Epsom. IMHO from seed to fruits, a balanced diet of the CN17 product line Grow/Bloom/Liquid Karma/CalMag/ silica blast, a total nutrient circle of excellent quality products will serve you much better, than bouncing between indoor and outdoor products. No PH to mess with, no over or under feedings. Just my $.02
  12. Oh damn, I'd bet the leg muscles would be screaming in few hundred miles!! The Cannonball Rides go way back, well before the super slabs, made travel easy across America. A guy that got to traveling around on a wee Honda 125 scooter, was asked about his routes for this or that ride he did. For some years it was mostly vintage machines, small bore engines. Now I think the limit before a handicap is placed on you, is just shy of 300 cc's. If I was not so deep into this addition, I'd tear out today, and get set up, and ride in that once before composting starts.
  13. I contacted HLG about that very question. They simply said, they had no idea. Nor did they want to get involved either. Short and sweet. I think you can run the numbers from the tags on your LED's, fans, whatever you are running, that tell their requirements to make them work. Then run that through a solar panel calculator. *You can calculate how many solar panels you need by multiplying your household's hourly energy requirement by the peak sunlight hours for your area and dividing that by a panel's wattage. Use a low-wattage (150W) and high-wattage (370W) example to establish a range (ex: 17-42 panels to generate 11,000 kWh/year).* Then reading down more: *It’s important to note that solar panels don’t operate at maximum efficiency at all times. (See Solar 101: How Does Solar Energy Work?). Weather conditions, for example, can temporarily reduce your system’s efficiency. Therefore, experts recommend adding a 25 percent “cushion” to your target daily average to ensure you can generate all the clean energy you need.* I could only find a grow or 2 over the years that was using solar panels. It was a small personal grow, that was started and stopped posting and I can only think, they were not doing all the well. I believe you will need a combination of solar, wind generator, and small ICE machine generator to make power on demand as you need it. Wish you the best in your project !!
  14. First, I just found out The Scootercannonball this year, was SUPPOSED to be held a couple of weeks ago. While reading on ADV, I learned it will running in JULY!! So all you scooter dudes and dudetts, can still register, $125.00 to ride 3500-4000 miles in 10 days, from Bar Harbor Ma to Eureka Ca. Glad I reported my big lie. Montmorency Cherries have a bit more antioxidants than sweet's do. I found their power for my aching hands, arms, shoulders, mostly from steel fabrication, building and installing web and sheet fed printing equipment, for many years. I started getting pains in my hands, arms, shoulders mostly. Not debilitating , but a constant source of nagging irritation, if you will. That started around 1997ish. When I found Kings Orchard products, I bought a case of concentrate, and put 3 in the freezer, an one I made up a batch. The reading I was doing called for a shot a few times a day. I cannot say, I fell in love with tart cherry juice, myself. My wife really likes it. But I drank the stuff a few times a day. I also CANNOT say, oh on this day, all my aches and pain went away! That never happened, but about on the 3rd or 4th quart of concentrate, so that was a good many days, I began to notice some of my more harsh hand and wrist pains SEEMED less painful. Ok I want it to work so it does, but that does not mean it is, just I'm convinced of it. So, I get through that case and order another one, Some where from opening, and finishing this case, we began to notice, in each other, small things, like walking longer in our evening walks. Less comments about oh hell this or that hurts this morning, stuff like that. We both dropped a few pounds not from cherry juice, but due to more movement due to hurting as much. It was my fingers that got limbered up, not hurting as I work, not stabbing into your thought and concentration. Getting up, and not feeling a quick stab of pain in my left knee, hell that one never came back, after I got lax and did not drink my daily shot. We started to work the juice into things salad dressing, cookies batter, and a nice marinade, if you like tart cherry. Then I got the tree idea, and found one in a size I could afford. It took maybe 3 years to get some decent cherries, at about 5 years I gave it a pruning, to open up the center of the tree. This year as winter sets in, I'm giving it a hard center pruning. I want the branches lower to the ground, but still easy to mow under it. It gets a dose of ReCharge in the early spring, and that is about it. I cut our 5 heads of cabbage, yesterday, got nice bag of chunky salt, some caraway seed, and packing them into Mason Jars for nice fall time sauerkraut. Once you consume homemade sauerkraut, you never go back to over cooked store bought. Hey SPW, I'll shoot you a PM about the beets, as I got a babble on here.
