.@GeoChurch ascribes his…ideas to narcolepsy Advocates more neurodiversity, ie those w. ASD, OCD, ADD + narcolepsy

“His condition has persuaded Church of the benefits of, even the need for, neurodiversity, meaning brains that work differently from most others. The world needs people with high-functioning autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder and attention deficit disorder and, yes, narcolepsy, he has come to believe.”

In Rural Oasis, #Serpico Finds New Adversaries Famous cop from the past protecting #trees from a McMansion developer

“But now Mr. Serpico’s serenity has been broken and he finds himself battling a new nemesis. This time, it is not an entire agency, but a local developer and town officials who Mr. Serpico says have ignored his complaints; this time, it is not over issues like taking cash payments from drug dealers, but over the fate of some trees and the desecration of pristine woodland.

“It’s like fighting the system again,” Mr. Serpico said. “Here I’m trying to enjoy my tranquillity and I’m being dragged back into a world of corruption.”

Is your sunscreen safe? Are you using toxic sunscreen?

July 10, 2017


Blue Lizard – Many consumers consider this sunscreen in the natural sunscreen category. While it’s active ingredients are good, it is their inactive ingredients that are toxic with PEGs, Parabens, Propylene Glycol and other such no-good ingredients.

Neutrogena – Uses oxybenzone and other toxic sunscreen active ingredients in almost all of their sunscreen products. This is on top of the many toxic inactive ingredients and preservatives.

Diabetic Diet – Great Veggies – Meals – Diabetes

June 5, 2017

Gr8 Low-carb #Veggies Top: collards, spinach, #kale, chard, red peppers; Bottom: cukes, eggplant, mushrooms, alfalfa


“In fact, the healthiest of all vegetables, according to "Nutrition Action Health Letter," is one that I had never prepared before: collard greens, with a score of 461.

The number 2 vegetable, spinach, with a score of 424, is one that I eat both raw and cooked. Like collards, and number 3 kale (score 410) and number 4 Swiss chard (322) all of these green leafy vegetables pair extraordinarily well with ham or bacon or other smoked meat and vinegar (a tip I picked up from Ruth Reichl’s Gourmet Cookbook).
Then comes red pepper (score 309), which I usually add to my salad but is also great cooked. Skipping a couple of high-carb veggies, the list then goes to broccoli at 179.
Next in order are okra, 165; Brussels sprouts, 143; lettuce, 141; and asparagus, 84. I was surprised that tomatoes and avocados, two honorary vegetables (technically fruit), ranked at 76 and 71 respectively. Wonderful cauliflower ranked even lower at 64, cabbage at 44. Near the bottom of the list are cucumber, eggplant, mushrooms, and alfalfa sprouts.

My attention went in that direction anyway after reading Michael Pollan’s He notes there that when we largely switched from eating leaves to seeds (as in grain), the problems with the so-called "Western Diet" began. It is indeed striking how many of the top veggies are leaves.”


Ticks on the Rise in Connecticut

May 14, 2017

 Avoid wooded and brushy areas with high grass and leaf litter.  Use repellents that contain 20 to 30 percent DEET on exposed skin and clothing for protection that lasts up to several hours.
 Bathe or shower as soon as possible after coming indoors to wash off and more easily find ticks.
 Conduct a full-body tick check using a hand-held or full-length mirror to view all parts of your body upon return from tick-infested areas.

Removing a Tick
 Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible.

Never crush a tick with your fingers.
