Interesting to hear. I will do some experiement when spring comes with different kind of green juices and I am very curios to see how wild green juices will be compared to wheatgrass and other green juices and smoothies...

I can imagine it is a lot of work but as you say when you feel like it is worth it... However it is interesting to hear that you still do not like to drink it even after so long time drinking it.I love greens:) Keep up the good work!

Wow! So you really know loads about cats! I'm loving each piece of information! Thank you!

My cat hates water... But I guess that is because she'd been through a lot during her period on the streets or something. That's cute your actually enjoys it! I always see shots of big cats swimming, including the Brazilian Jaguar :)

Yeah, it's very concerning the fact that he might fall from the boat!

This Switzerland fact makes me wonder why some people really care about our furry friends and others don't give a bleep, you know? Here in Brazil, if you go to the police to inform about animal cruelty, they tell you to mind about your own business and that's all. Really sad.

You should definitely come, Rock! You'll love it! Nice to know about your background! My mom used to be a Geography teacher! I guess you'd like to meet her. She lives in Rio de Janeiro  (She's having English classes, so, don't worry! ^^ )

Hey! Nice to know you liked my story hehe
Nowadays, which happens to most of my tattooed friends, people get inked without actually having a reason, you know, what's more, a story...
Ow, I love cats!
I have this lil' black cutie pie I rescued from a square near my job! Her name is Mischka!
I'd really adore to have any experience with the big cats!
Well, you're moving to a boat? Hm... I guess your kitties won't really enjoy it, but, I'm still really selfish, so, if I were into such situation, I would carry them along, absolutely!

Wow, that's a pretty amazing thing about Africa! I wonder how cool it actually was to be there, in the real deal, their habitat! ^^

I really didn't know about these things over the Jaguar... I chose it too because it's the biggest and more powerful big cat from Brazil. We even have it featured on our R$:50,00 bill hehe

xx with loads of love!

Rock- i befriended you to answer your question since there was no other way-however- I see that as no reason to not be continue.

Hey Rock!

Thanks for the comment! ^^

Well... When I was younger (around 14/16) I used to have bunnies as my favorite/totem animals. I was shy, quiet, never argued with anybody, submissive, etc etc. Exactly like a bunny. I used to be constantly bullied by everybody, including family, and was really depressed. When I came to my breakthrough, "getting rid" of all of it and coming to live by myself, I experienced the same problems with my relations at my university and my job. I couldn't take it any longer, though. I got depressed and and ED was my special prize. I decided to see a therapist and she helped me to develop the real woman power inside, saying that I needed to be stronger, to be more assertive, do discover another totem. So, I had this birth mark in my arm that looked like a jaguar spot. Then, I decided to "spread it" into a nearly full arm tattoo. My attitude and life was changing, so I wanted to mark it over my skin.

Well, that's it!

Hey, thank you very much for the comment!

Having a vegan community close to us is really precious...

My fiancee is vegan, but not an 811 supporter at this moment. He already had a fruit based diet for a year about a decade ago. But is not planning to come back, while I'm fully intended to do it for the rest of my life. 

Oh, Nice to meet you!!

Hi Rock, just read your post about Ralph Waldo Emerson in the Nutritional Yeast thread. He was certainly aware of the concept, even though the word "vegan" was yet a century away. Have you heard of the Fruitlands community? It was founded by Bronson Alcott, father of famous author Louisa May Alcott, and a good friend of Emerson's. The Fruitlands community were strict vegans long before the term was coined. http://www.alcott.net/alcott/home/fruitlands.html


"At Fruitlands, Lane advocated a strict policy of abstinence.  “Neither coffee, tea, molasses, nor rice tempts us beyond the bounds of indigenous production,” Lane wrote.  “No animal substances neither flesh, butter, cheese, eggs, nor milk pollute our tables, nor corrupt our bodies.”  By living on a simple diet, the members of Fruitlands were to eliminate their need for trade and minimize labor.

If Alcott felt Brook Farm was not “austere enough,” he certainly made up for this lack at Fruitlands.  Absolutely no meat or other animal products were eaten (hence the name Fruitlands).  In fact nothing from animals (including wool, honey, wax, or manure) nor even animal labor were used by the community.  The founders felt men should not take anything from animals, for they should be as free as humans.  Bronson Alcott’s idealism was so strong, in fact, that he would not permit canker-worms to be disturbed, and forbade the planting of such vegetables and roots as grow downward instead of upward into the air."
Also, Helen and Scott Nearing, authors of Living the Good Life were vegans. They lived in the 1900s, but their books always started each chapter with historical quotes. Can't remember any of them at the moment, but there were some in their cookbook that referenced vegan ideas dating to the 1500's
Anyway, seemed you had an interest in the Transcendentalists and the history of vegetarian and vegan, so thought I would share.

Thanks for your answer and for the book tip.

You press wheatgrass to get the juice? Why is that not juicing? I don't juice but I have also done the wheatgrass juice, but with a Hurom slow juicer:)

I think you're right about the salt, and maybe I was more questioning distilled water during a fast. Nothing can live in it and it doesn't conduct electricity... So maybe it's better to add something? I think Ehret said honey en lemon juice...

Actually you didn't say what you drink during a fast:)

What kind of water do you drink during a fast?

I know some topics are "undiscussable" on this site, and there was a topic on this but it was removed...and I also 've read that you don't like salt:) ... but, what do you think about sole salt?:)
I don't eat salt nor do I crave it nor do I think it will give me something essential that fruits and vegetables can't give me, but...
There's nothing that can live in distilled water and it doesn't conduct electricity.  The water in fruits is indeed distilled but with organic minerals and vitamins and so, and probably it does conducts electricity (haven't tested this:)).

We are electrical beings, so maybe by adding a tablespoon of sole to a gallon of distilled water we make it "electrically" and better for the body?Just a thought, but unfortunately not discussable here:)

Sole:* Fill your glass jar a 1/4 of the way with the Himalayan salt* Add pure water, filling the glass jar to the top* Let jar sit overnight to let your pure water reach 26% (maximum) salinity, which is your Sole salt solution


Do you have any essential book recommendations on fasting? I've read "rational fasting" and "the miracle of fasting".

I am wondering if you have a tip for clearing something out of my ear. I used a q-tip and then suddenly couldn't hear in my left ear. It's a bit better now (24 hours later) but not all the way.

yeah, you are surely missing the great fruit festival - http://www.thewoodstockfruitfestival.com

What's up with that?!!


But I pm-ed you about the real reason.

Thanks for the add.

Hey Rock I saw that you wrote that you made a 60 banana barrel of ice cream and am wondering if you ate it all that day or did you freeze it? I'm interested in finding out how to re-freeze banana ice cream in a way that it won't turn to ice. Any idea?

"Jacob is a prime example of how my generation did not raise their kids to be suitable parents for the next (Jacob's) generation.  No respect for the work and passion of others, they just want it for free, and want to be paid a fair wage for the work that they do."

From forum guidelines "Speak your mind but keep it helpful!"

"Please help us maintain a level of decorum so that parents feel good about bringing their kids here to learn, share and enjoy in the community.
