I’ve been on the Undead Thread at least seven years, because Vlad was born here after we left earth, and I was here before that. Undead FRiends are real friends, giving real help, big or small. “If it all falls down,” the Zombie Apocalypse or whatever else happens, we’ll make sure our people are taken care of.

Kathleen had Ash’s tail, but Ash moved it. (*groan, HUFF*) Now she’s trying to get a grip on the carpet to drag herself forward, unsuccessfully. We haz a tiny pink furious now.

At the height of my weightlifting I was doing 1200 on a hip sled. 4x8. Then I’d back it off to around 800 and do toe-raisers.

Never did get my squats up over 485 though. Go figure...

That was 5-6 years ago now. Time flies.

I need to borrow Tom for his perspective. These birds look as big if not bigger than the local hawks (maybe redtails?), but the local cats are rather large, too, so I can’t tell if they’re small ravens or large crows.

Your comment about doing a service to the local avian community brought a concept to mind. During a macroeconomics class, our prof expressed the following question: “Is it immoral to let a million people starve, or should we feed them and then have ten million starving people?” Sowell covers the concept in the “Black Rednecks” book (how self-sufficiency is discouraged and a culture of victimization is created when able-bodied people are encouraged to be dependent upon the government.) I’m fine with having more ravens and crows as long as they don’t bother the hummingbirds, purple martins, etc. More rambling. It’s not even 1700. I’ll get back to the tomatoes now :).

A million people are starving only in a disaster situation, and if there is a free flow of information and goods, voluntary action will usually address the temporary needs better than any coordinated effort. Only in a few situations, like the Indian Ocean tsunami, is there a real need for the U.S. Navy to intervene, and that was largely because of the island populations with nowhere to evacuate to and the widespread devastation in undeveloped and largely unfree nations.

Thomas Sowell says there’s never, in modern times, been a catastrophic famine in a state or region with a free press and something like democracy. Shortage becomes starvation when government is at liberty to prevent natural market forces from getting food to where it’s most in demand.

I solved the Furious by feeding it, but it woke up again. As soon as the noodles are done, we’ll embark on our supper-delivery. It’s only about ten minutes away.

Ash had “Chunks in gravy with chicken,” which makes one wonder what the “chunks” are, if they’re not chicken. She was hoping I’d give her the pork that was thawing in the sink, but that’s going in the crockpot tomorrow.

My best calf raise was <300 lbs. I used a machine that rested on my shoulders and was afraid I’d have vertebral collapse if I lifted too much.

“when government is at liberty to prevent natural market forces from getting food to where it’s most in demand.”

The govt control thing is what disturbs me. I can’t address other issues because the things of which you speak are beyond the scope of my experience. However, penalizing people who want to give away their produce (happened in GA) is beyond the pale. I just hope we can straighten out these issues in November.

I’m a firm believer in private action to help people in need, whether it’s taking food to a family caring for an invalid or buying a FRiend a new crockpot.

The Chickpea Dish started out as a Weight Watchers recipe, so it has a lot of vegetables in it. Today’s version had a couple of colored bell peppers in it (from Walmart) as well as some Anaheim chilis from the garden. And fresh basil.

Sometimes the government’s control is openly oppressive, and sometimes it’s intended to do good, as with price controls or penalties for “profiteering.” However, regardless of motive, people are much more likely to starve when the price system is not allowed to operate freely.

I hope, before I die, to see a President who has read Thomas Sowell.

Love doing calf raises. Oly bar on a squat rack. To get better stretch, a 2x4 or a couple of stacked 45s works good. Tried a step aerobics step, but none of them I’ve seen will withstand the combined weight.

Speaking of calf stretches, I had a book by someone named Anderson who espoused calf stretches thusly:
Put your palms at shoulder height flat against a wall or solid object. Extend one leg backward and push that heel until it’s flat against the ground while dropping your hips without allowing the opposite knee to extend forward beyond the toes of the leg that isn’t having the gastrocs stretched. I don’t know if that makes sense—I’ll try to find the book and copy. The idea is to keep the lower leg of the side not being stretched perpendicular to the floor. (A thousand apologies if this is not coherent; I’ve tried not to post after 1700 hrs but weight lifting and physical conditioning is too important to put off lol!)

I hope you and yours had a marvelous Fourth!
Sincerely,
Sg

Wow... It's been 8 years. It doesn't seem that long ago. So much has happened in that period of time.

And now I should move to the new thread, too.

My pink things were in Oregon with me and my wife last week. Little Pink is 3 going on Cutie does Oscar The Grouch. Littlest Pink is pushing up onto all fours; bucking to skip creeping, and go straight from inert mass to crawling.

More later, as I have a moment...
