[Well, looky here! You CAN have a fairly decent conversation without attacking someone and/or their faith! I am SO proud of you! Really, I am! I was truly of the thinking that such was beyond you. I am glad to see that it's not. So, okay, let's get to it!]
You know, I've converted to free-rage organic hen and duck eggs from a local source as opposed to commercially produced eggs. they are MUCH better! In addition to the taste, the fats in the yolk promote a healthy and youthful skin. I recommend them.
I am SO glad to hear that, truly! I don't care for duck/duck eggs much, myself... and I'm having trouble eating eggs these days (they taste like rubber to me most of the time) but I do love a good free-range hen. When I DO eat them, I only use jumbo free-range, brown eggs. Saute in a little budda - I can get a little of those down.
I also recently purchased a 3.5 season tent from Tarptent. Well put together, goes up and down in a jiffy, the double wall design and large vestibule comes in handy when storing gear or when you need to cook out of the rain. I don't know if you do any hiking or backpacking, if you do, I recommend it.
I DO hike actually... well, walk in wooded/wilderness areas. I would love to hike but don't know anyone that does... and wouldn't really attempt it without hubby (he's my bud; can't leave him behind). I love camping, too, but haven't done it in years. Even when we went to Tahoe last year we stayed in a lovely little motel (it really was lovely, as was our time in Tahoe).
Finally, the Trangia alcohol stoves are a winner in my book. Trailcooking.com has some great one pot recipes to try. By using a pot cozy (I made one out of a windshield heat deflector and some duct tape for $6) you can conserve fuel and cook a meal for two people in about 20 minutes using only 1.5 ounces of fuel, depending on outside temps, water temps and so forth. I made a windscreen for it out of carbon felt and it works great. I have the Trangia model 25-8 in anodized aluminium and the Mini single person model. Great stoves. If, though, you are going to be cooking about 9000 feet you might want to look at a Jetboil, though.
That's pretty impressive. A guy like you could hang out in the rough for quite some time with that kind of skill. Me? I camp more like a "girl": Coleman double burner... eggs, bacon, potatoes with onions for breakfast. Enough to feed 6-10... Nice vegetable stir fry for dinner/supper... or some cold fried chicken that I prepared and froze before leaving... Bush's beans. And while we would go a little bit up, about 3,000-4,000 feet was the limit. Not really a mountain climber, myself. I get nervous as trees get thicker. I have a bit of a problem with jungles. Well, if you call the mall a jungle... which I do!
Anyway, I have a heavy travel week for work and things to do. Have a pleasant day.
Ah, I'm sorry about that! I actually have a pretty laid-back week planned. Working on a couple/few business projects but nothing that requires me to get out of my pajamas before, say, 11am. I do have another pleasant days, planned though: getting together with lots of family to celebrate grand-nephew's 4th B-day! Anticipate lots of sun, great food, good people... so, yeah, I'm good there. How 'bout you? How's your weekend going?
P.S. As I said, your attempts at childish insults are sad. You would think a woman of your age would know how to conduct herself better.
And then... this. And I had SUCH high hopes for you... really, I did; you were doing SO well! Of course, I'm not surprised. As I've stated, you simply cannot help yourself. You are being your TRUE self, which you have NO choice but to be. As other men of your ilk are. You know, men who are "lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God." And so on and so on...
You, though, would be surprised at how many women... and men... of my age conduct themselves. Even so, I haven't lied to you and tried to make you... or others... think I am a kind of woman ("nice")... that I am not. Indeed, I have been quite honest and forthright regarding that matter. So your expectation that I would be different in on you.
If you have actual, real things to debate rather than simply trying to get my attention, please do come back.
LOLOLOLOL! I'm not trying to get your attention, chile'. I am only affording you the same disdain that you afford me. I am simply doing "unto" you... and you obviously WANT to be done "unto." Because it's how you do unto me. I tried respectful with you... many, many... many times... because that is what I wish from others. YOU did not want that. So, I am only giving you what you repeatedly communicate to ME that you wish to RECEIVE from me. And now, you're whining about that. Of course. You can speak to others any way YOU wish... with all kinds of snark and disdain... but when someone speaks to YOU in the same way... you get all offended? Where's that thick skin you call for others to display when you're attacking them? The list above didn't include the word... but I did state "and so on and so on..." so right about here is where you would put it.
Now, GO: HAVE yourself that pleasant and lovely day... and stop with all of the "AGuest doesn't get to post here without me responding/commenting with some kind of snark because I have made it my mission to stamp her out" ness. Else you risk getting back some of what you put out there.
A doulos of Christ,
