  • Grass-fed Cow Tongue tastes better than it looks

    Tongue initially doesn't have the outward appeal that would guide one to pick it up and decide to try cook/eat it; but it is actually quite delicious.  I don't recall the recipe, but memory tells me the pot contained:

    • A cow tongue that had been soaked, drained, and scrubbed
    • Some chopped Carrot and Celery (maybe onion)
    • Enough water to cover it all
    • Rosemary and Sage

    You can see everything combined in the first couple pictures.  The third picture is after it had cooked in the slow cooker on low for about 10 hours.  The fourth picture is how the tongue meat looked cooked and cut on the plate.  And the fifth is of the peeled off "skin" bits that remained.

  • Necon Lord Assembly Complete

    These finecast models aren't my favorite to work with, but trimming/shaping this model ended up being easier to do (without mistakes) than it first appeared to be.  It's hard to tell by the photo, but the "shoulder pads" of the model contained quite a bit of extra resin that was left by the design of the mold that needed to be carved out.  I'm happy with the end result, but I didn't expect to spend as much time as I did on a model with so few pieces.

  • Necon OverLord Assembly Complete

    This model was a much more challenging finecast model to clean, but I must admit that I am very pleased with the end result of this model.  There is quite a bit of detail in its design, which makes equally as impressive.

  • Time for a Career Change?

    I've decided to enroll back in school and take a Holistic Nutritionist course with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.  I've been dabbling for over a decade in the nutrition realm which progressed from eat for your blood type, to food combining, to Paleo / whole foods.  I've finally clued into the fact that I am pretty passionate about it, and plan for a career change soon after I've graduated.

    I'll take the course part-time through their Distance Education option, as they do not yet have a school in Winnipeg.  I fully intend to take both Advanced Certification options, which ultimately leads to the Diploma.

    Healthy Living is going to be much more than "just a hobby" in the near future!

  • Time for a Career Change? v2.0

    Two weeks later, and I've decided to switch where I pursue my education; enrolling in the Wholistic Nutrition course through Living Energy.  I decided to take Radka's course for many reasons, but the top reasons are:

    • When I called to talk about the course, she took her time to talk to me.  Our conversation was very easy-flowing (like two friends), and I truly felt like she will continue to be a mentor long after the course.
    • Her own practice (beyond the school) involves the whole person... body, mind, and soul; and that is what I see in my future.
    • Her's is a "suggested" three year program with the first year focusing on Anatomy, Physiology, and Chemistry... the basics.  Many of the other courses I was looking at were trying to wedge these topics into their two year program, which made me wonder what they were "leaving out" to meet that timeline.
    • I also didn't like how some of the other courses out there seem to be slanted towards vegetarianism; a bias my experiences don't share.

    Most of my textbooks will be arriving from amazon the week of Sept. 8th, and the initial course modules should be in my possession one to two weeks after that.  Exciting!

  • Construction to replace my street breaks ground yesterday

    There was alot of noise outside our house yesterday as the backhoe jackhammers were busy tearing into the street that they are working hard to replace... and we are extremely grateful for the repairs coming our way!

  • Structured Silver vs Malaria

    An article appeared in The Indian Practitioner in September 2010 (volume 63, number 9, pages 567-574) that details the results of three clinical studies performed with malaria patients and silver, including a 100% cure rate in an average of five days.

    I know I was skeptical in the beginning by these claims, but after reading/watching the balance of the information that I have linked to in my Structured Silver section... I definitely started opening up to the possibilities.

  • Part 1 - An Introduction to Structured Silver

    I was recently introduced to Structured Silver by my instructor, through the gentle suggestion of a shared URL to Dr. Pedersen's web-site.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the thoroughness of Dr. Pedersen's video explanations, so I'd rather you watched them instead of me engaging in the injustice of trying to paraphrase what I learned.

    This collection of short videos is an excellent introduction to Structured Silver, what it is used for (past and present), and discussions about its safety... and even introduces a big claim of effectiveness against MRSA.

  • Part 2 - Structured Silver vs Pathogens

    Being a believer in probiotics, my first concern was that if Structured Silver is so effective against "bad" bacteria and yeast... what about the healthy flora that I am trying to maintain?

    This collection of short videos dives deeper into Structured Silver, how it works, why it can distinguish between pathogenic bacteria/yeast and not our healthy flora... and why our healthy cells are protected.
