Craig and I both lived east of CSpgs - Craig in Peyton, me in Drennan.
At Drennan there were several dairy farms.  The one old guy was cool.
One leg stool, milked by hand, wonderful fat settles to top,
$1/gallon, and you are absolutely correct - store milk is like water.
The only other place 40 years ago that I experienced store milk as
water was after returning from visit at my uncle where we drank goat
milk - awesome stuff.

Raw milk is legal in New Hampshire, there are several places we can get it. I 
haven't dared to try it yet but we do often get non-homogenized milk from the 
same dairy. Its pasteurized but you need to remember to share it before 
drinking, or don't to get some cream for cereal.

My buddy Greg does a lot of baking (and now is learning ice cream) and 
uses raw milk mostly, I think he said there is a dairy on Wadmalaw that 
produces and sells it.  He gets it at the Stono Market on Johns Island.  
Not too convenient for you, but probably a lot cheaper.

It is the adulterated fats that kill.  Natural fats, as nature 
intended are necessary for life, but not available in prepared foods. 
Raw, not GMO foods have fats that are unadulterated.  almonds, 
Macadamia nuts, black walnuts, hickory nuts are all good sources, as 
are organically grown animals who are not fed GMO grain.  old 
varieties of peanuts grown organically should be good also.  I'm 
guessing Monsanto/dupont etc. manufactures most peanuts grown as a 
crop, so they won't be good.


All we need to exist is Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 fatty acids. 
The body manufactures every thing else from these two basics.

Local farm has a small grocery store with mostly local products, 
including raw milk.   Priced at about 2x homogenized milk, they 
couldn't keep it in stock, kept increasing the price until they 
found the market price, which is like $8 a half gallon.


I grew up on raw milk, straight from the nearest neighbors dairy 
farm.  Store milk is like water to me, nothing in it.

Re: [MBZ] Way OT: Blendtec recipes, anyone?

Local farm has a small grocery store with mostly local products, including 
raw milk.   Priced at about 2x homogenized milk, they couldn't keep it in 
stock, kept increasing the price until they found the market price, which is 
like $8 a half gallon.

I grew up on raw milk, straight from the nearest neighbors dairy farm.  Store 
milk is like water to me, nothing in it.

I'll send you the info in a few days, Rick.

Anyone else interested in this vitamin/mineral diet and lifestyle, please 
contact me offline and I'll send you the information as well as sending it to 
Rick and a couple of others who have contacted me offline. It might take 
several days since I want to look up and include several references.

Understand: I will only be telling you what I consume and how I live. I'm not 
suggesting you do the same. 

However, if you should choose to try my diet/lifestyle, it's important to first 
take a copy to a doctor and ask him if there is any part that will hurt you 
in consideration of any medical issues you might have. (If you ask him if it 
will help you, he'll probably say no).  

Vitamin C is more or less the cornerstone of megavitamin therapy. Here is a 
very good list of the pros and cons of taking it:

Oh, come on.
You are the dude with the fancy machine. Make some stuff and let the

Don't forget to add lots of sugar.

And, if I recall correctly, one can buy a blender for camping that has a

I should have thought you would have got one of those and then converted

Re: [MBZ] Way OT: Blendtec recipes, anyone?

2015-07-22 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
I had a very good friend in Pensacola (now deceased from liver disease) that 
had a margarita mixer/blender on his trimaran that was powered by a little weed 
whacker style 2 cycle engine.

He made a wicked margarita.

His greeting every time you met him was, “”Would you like a rum beverage?”

His neighbors were sailmakers, and they took the scraps of sailcloth and made 
beach bags emblazoned with their logo (Schurr Sails) and gave them away to 
customers.  Barney (my friend) always carried one with him wherever he went, 
with a bag of ice, Solo cups, a 2 liter of Coke, and a big bottle of Captain 
Morgan’s.

Here’s to you, Barney!

 Oh, come on.
 You are the dude with the fancy machine. Make some stuff and let the rest of 
 us know if it was worth the effort.
 Don't forget to add lots of sugar.
 
 And, if I recall correctly, one can buy a blender for camping that has a 
 gasoline engine with a pull cord.
 I should have thought you would have got one of those and then converted it 
 to diesel.
 Don't recall if it was on here but somewhere I looked at a link lately that 
 showed a guy with a V8 Buick nailhead engine powering a Margeurita (sp?) 
 maker.

 I'm reaching out - a  cry for help.  Sharing my life experiences.  Exposing
 my vulnerabilities (not many, I admit).  What do I get?  Nada.
 
 Seriously:  I blended (smoothie setting) frozen
 blueberries/strawberries/raspberries, spinach, basil, almond milk, ice,
 carrots, and a little agave syrup.  The results were bracing - even tasty.
 I also felt energized upon consuming the drink!
 
 Now I am game to do more.  Anybody made carrot or beet juice?  Peanut
 butter?

Barney was a great guy.  I crewed his trimaran with him a number of times, and 
it was always a blast.  Never a dull moment, for sure.

I still have my Schurr Sails bag in the closet, which gets used in a similar 
manner any time we go to the beach.

 Sounds like he was a great guy to have around. My answer to him would have 
 been Of course!
 We went to Angie's 20th high school graduation last Saturday, she was pretty 
 nervous about it so I packed along my flask in case things were dull. The 
 party was fine and she had a great time which leaves me with a flash full of 
 MT Gay Extra Old...
 Well heck, its after 5.

 Just bought a Blendtec 2 hp machine at Costco after seeing a demo.  Price
 was down to $249.
 Can any of you share any good recipes with this powerful juicer/blender? Or 
 with a comparable Vitamix?
 If the Blendtec is used properly one can live forever, I am told.

I looked it up on the 'net. Appears to be about the same as my heavy duty 
Kitchen Aid blender. The spec list said: lifetime coupling-and-blade; which 
may mean that you can't take the blade off and replace it or sharpen it; you 
have to replace the whole bottom end just like mine. 
However, the blade stays sharp for a long time, and even when it gets dull, 
it's still very usable unless you want to totally liquify something.

As for living forever, I've been on a mega nutrients diet for 31 years; 55 to 
86; and still have negative lab and xray reports. Annoying aches and pains are 
the main drawback to being a healthy geezer IMO, but still better than the 
alternative.
