Hate to bathe? Hate to shower? Skin get itchy at the thought?

2007 2, 05

Do you hate to bathe? Shower? Suffer from from intolerably dry skin that screams at 10 minutes after a full shower/bath? The answer: Spongebathing! Washcloth and soap [and shampoo for hair time – read on!]
A four day rotating schedule for spongebathing: Get clean in bits and pieces.

    Make a song out of it:
    * Day One: Feet, Elbows, Chest and Knees.
    * Day Two: Bottom part of legs, Forearms and neck.
    * Day Three: Upper Legs, Upper arms+ shoulders, Face.
    * Day Four: Hair, Genitals, Armpits, Stomach.

This way, the “clean” is spread out around your body, so no one large section has to tolerate the creeping sensation (which many people love) all at the same time.
You will smell better, feel better, without losing too much natural body oil which keeps the dry skin monster at bay.
I’m sure many of you wlil find this disgusting – especially if my family stumbles upon this page – but it beats hiding from showers as long as possible. I’m sure there is a medical term for this problem – I don’t know what it is – but there is my confession.
I hope this helps! -ken udut, 35, naples, fl

6 meals a day have names!

2007 13, 04

You’ve all read about the 6 meals-a-day. It can be difficult to remember, since we traditionally think of BREAKFAST, LUNCH, DINNER with a few snacks inbetween perhaps (if you’re so inclined). The 6 meals don’t have regular names… do they?

But, in a discussion with my mother on the way home from the store, I finally have learned that there are ALREADY NAMES for the 6 meals a day!

1) BREAKFAST
2) BRUNCH
3) LUNCH
4) HIGH TEA
5) DINNER (Dinner is always a “heavy” meal)
6) SUPPER (Supper is thought of as lighter).

There it is!

While dinner and supper are used interchangably, they DO have nuances of meaning.

Think of the word SOUP and SUPPER. – like “SOUPER”. Imagine a sandwhich and soup and a couple of cookies. That could be a supper, but NOT a dinner!

Something, ain’t it?

all registered fictitious names in NAPLES, FL (non-pobox)

2007 13, 04

All registered fictitious names in NAPLES, FL, both current and historical.
I did not include PO BOXES, as they change more often than not.

Also, more importantly, I did not include chains whose corporate headquarters exist outside of Naples, FL. So, all the Eckard Drugs? etc. etc. I could do another list including the chains (which would give a grand total of all businesses operating out of Naples – or even Collier County (I have that data now too), but that wasn’t my interest. So – look on and perhaps be surprised! These are your neighbors and friends.

What is the underlying nature of all things?

2007 24, 03

What is the underlying nature of all things?
What is the fundamental nature of all things?
What lies beneath?
What is just below the surface?
If you scratch reality, does it bleed?
Everything is real, but consists of mostly empty space.
As nearly all things can be broken down into their individual components, which can further be broken down into further components, then this asks the question: What things cannot be broken down?

What is permanent?
What is forever?
What is eternal?
Unchanging?
Timeless?

I do not know.

Do you?

225 Calorie Cheap Homemade Meals – Freezer To Plate

2007 1, 03

DIETER’S DREAM!

Here is how to make a cheap 225 calorie individual balanced meal packet (like your own Lean Cuisine or Budget Gourmet or Weight Watchers) but far more customizable..

Buy chicken breasts in bulk. [the frozen skinless, boneless breasts go for about $7 for 2 lbs at Publix – Sam’s Club/Costco is probably cheaper]

Buy Broccolli in bulk [get the florets – they are tastier, unless you don’t mind the stems] – about 4 lbs

Buy 2 lbs of Basmati Rice (about $2-3)

Buy a package of 1 pint Freezer bags (you can use sandwhich bags too but they don’t take the heat– make sure they “zip” like ziploc otherwise you may get freezer burn]

When you get home:

Cook the chicken in the most basic way possible. You can steam it, you can roast it in the oven (use as little fat as possible), you can microwave it, you can use a pressure cooker (that’s what I do).

You can marinate it to give it a jolt with some kind of acid like lemon juice or vinegar or soy sauce – just watch your marinade’s contents for too much salt, sugar, fat, etc — you can add those later – just read on)

The broccolli you can leave as is for the moment.

The rice can be cooked on the stove or microwave. For more flavor you can use a liquid other than water – like chicken broth — but Basmati Rice has such a wonderful aroma that it doesn’t need anything extra – trust me on this.

Let the rice and chicken cool. [I’m impatient and don’t let the rice cool all of the way and it works out fine too – but if you do that, make sure you have good ziploc bags so they don’t melt!]

The recipe:

1/4 cup Chicken (1 1/2 oz if using a food scale)
1/2 cup Basmati Rice
1 cup Broccolli.

Put all three ingredients into the baggie. zip it almost all of the way shut then SQUEEZE out the excess air, and finish closing it.

Store in freezer – you can store in fridge just make sure you don’t leave them in the fridge for months and months – freezing just keeps things fresher longer.

When you’re ready to eat one, dump it in a bowl — it’s a lot of food so watch out you don’t use a tiny bowl — and now the fun begins!

Put Salsa on top for a low calorie, cheap flavor. Any salsa will do.

Salad Dressing – just watch the hidden calories there.

Balsamic vinegar (my favorite)

Curry powder.

Garlic/garlic powder. Onions, peppers, mustard – soy sauce, ginger, hot sauce — whatever appeals to your tastebuds. Salt/Pepper/Low-cal butter substitute is an all time favorite too.

Put in microwave for about 3-5 minutes. You’ll know its done if you can smell it cooking. Since no cooking is involved (just “heating up”), it’s safe.

You can also throw it in a wok / pan / pot – wherever you enjoy cooking.

The nutrution information:

17 G Protein (from the chicken / broccolli / rice )
33 G Carbohydrates (from the rice + broccolli)
1 G Fat (from the chicken breast)

Lots of vitamin C too. Basmati Rice also has a low Glycemic Index (GI) if you’re into that.

Total Cost: Less than 50 cents ($0.50) per meal.
