Addiction LXXIX

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

So did my dad. I don't.

He would also eat the "knuckles" off the ends of chicken legs and suck out the marrow. Peanut butter, bacon and hot sauce sandwiches were another treat he loved. He died at the ripe old age of 64.

From a wee lad Iíve been an animal lover, still am. But I hate deer. 3 reasons.
1) They come in your yard and eat plants you spent hard-earned money raising in your yard.
2) They come in your yard and bring disease-carrying ticks that drop off in your yard to wait for you to pass by.
3) They have a nasty habit of feeding near roadways and spontaneously stepping in front of moving cars . . . for no discernible reason.

I remember driving on interstate 84 about a month after just moving to the country, after having spent my entire early years living in the big city where there are no deer. But I had heard stories. You know whatís coming next, right?

All of a sudden I see a large antlered deer decide to bolt directly across the 6 lane highway. Why, who the hell knows? Did the grass smell greener over there? I know he made it at least to the median, I zipped past him and couldnít see the rest, but I pray that some poor guy with kids in the car didnít plow into that dumbass deer going 65 mph. That s not something you want to see.

So I say all that just to reveal that yes, every time I see a deer I wish somebody would shoot him. Sorry.

I love not having to worry about whether I've cooked my food enough to not be dangerous to me, or whether I've cross-contaminated my veggies.

Plus, meat is messy. And expensive!

I don't mind eating them. As long as they have been scrubbed clean.

Actually, mrs datlas sometimes buys a 1 pound bag of carrots and I typically eat the whole thing in one sitting.

You seem to have inadvertently overlooked the ample carrots and beetroot, superfoods both. But yeah, I do believe improving my overall nutrition can be beneficial, because after all you are what you eat. But if not Iíll have to look elsewhere.

All those things you're eating are good to eat. I'm just wondering how eating an unnatural amount of them (via juicing) is supposed to help with anaemia. Remember, I have this problem too, so it's not a theoretical issue.

In a brilliant move that might otherwise be seen as slightly paranoid, Bah Humbug dulled the impact of my double metric century sneak attack with a preemptive imperial century of his own. Well played, sir. Well played.

A slow rolling thunderstorm, with a gentle rain. Idyllic. I could stand one like this weekly. Alas, we have them a couple times per year. I plan to ride home from Merida tomorrow afternoon. It could be more of the same

"Saturated fat" is what you call a lipid made up of fatty acids with no double bonds, so coconut oil is an oil, but it's 90% saturated fat.

Actually, there is no chemical distinction between "oils" and "fats." Colloquially, we tend to call the ones that are liquid at room temperature oils and those also tend to be the "unsaturated" ones.

No problem. They are tasty.

As you probably remember, Iíve done a lot of riding in Montana. Deer are almost as numerous as pigeons in the big city. In 2017 I passed a motorist who had just hit one. Her hood was buckled. No visible external damage to the animal, but the thing was dead as fried chicken. People with expensive truck often have guards on the front, which I assume are to protect the vehicle in case of a deer or elk strike. On the last day of my 2019 tour I left my hotel in town early. There were several grazing by the side of the road by a gas station/convenience store. A couple of them wandered into the road without looking. The locals know to expect stupid behavior from them.

I have no solid evidence this will help my anemia. I think it was effective a couple months ago where I felt more energetic, but since I was pretty inactive due to the hernia I canít connect the two with any validity. I know whenever I ask my pcp about it he recommends liver and other food items, and Iíve beat the liver thing to death in the past, so now Iíll try the other food items. And Iím not consuming these in unnatural amounts, the 50 ozs I made yesterday should last me a week - 7 ozs a day. Maybe I should double that to twice a day.

Beef liver is very tasty when prepared properly, ever tried it?
