    Silence can be explosive lol, but the mind must be quiet in order to hear it...

    Not long ago my Australian Shepherd buddy chased after something he never encountered before and will probably not forget anytime soon lol...A skunk, a young one but potent no less, he got sprayed right in the face, poor guy...It was my duty to clean him up with many washing of tomato sauce and dish detergent or else he wasn't sleeping on my bed that night lol...

    I started to learn ancient egyptian language (hieroglyphs) just because it's really cool to be able to read up on ancient drawings. I watched a couple vids covering the alphabet and I'm already able to make out whole words...but it's much more complicated than that.

    I just made yet another batch of peanut butter... just roasted unsalted peanuts through a small food processor (which I bought especially for making this) for about 3 or 4 minutes and whalla, it's done...

    It's to die for and because it has no additives and preservatives and gets mostly eaten quickly by the spoonful, way before it ever has a chance to land on a piece of bread it never gets a chance to get rancid....

    In my household there is one person who lives in a caravan at the back of my house who reckons he doesn't like it because it's not Chemical enough... No problem, just add a little honey and use salted peanuts instead... He tells me he still doesn't like it but I have no difficulties adding it to his commercially bought peanut butter jar when he isn't looking...

    So far he hasn't noticed though he did ask me a while ago if I was sneaky enough to mix it in with his jar of commercial peanut butter and again, no problem, I had no difficulty successfully pleading innocence...

    Far out... I like peanuts and I figure this is a great way to be able to continue eating peanuts when I finally lose my teeth... pre-chewed peanuts - can't beat that...

    I thought of applying for a part time job in the Casino to earn some extra money.

    Don't you already work full-time Diva? Although I can't say anything, as I'm the same. I hate not working, so work full-time and then part time in the evenings once I'm done with my 9-5... and then there's uni in between. :p

    Also, how are you feeling? I know a while back, you were unwell, but wasn't sure of the why. Are you better now? x

    I've never known anyone to make their own peanut butter, what an awesome idea though. So simple and cost effective. I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that they don't like something because it's not "chemical enough" though... each to their own I suppose :D

    Not chemical enough basically means, I think, is because commercial peanut butter has salt and sugar added as a taste enhansive (plus they both act as preservatives as well) and the version I make doesn't...

    I got the idea from a Food coop we have here and from a couple of health food shops... they have these nut butter grinding machines where peanuts (or some other nuts) are fed into them and you put your jar underneath them and out comes nut butter... I found it a little expensive plus the peanut butter isn't smooth, it's crunchy and I like smooth peanut better...

    So I looked it up on the internet and saw that a food processor was the way (they are not cheap but I got a good smallish one)... and the discovered the best way to make it is to either put the peanuts on a tray under the grill for a few minutes or in the oven and roast them slighly and the heat brings out the oils in the nuts...

    I have it down to an art now and make it for friends who like it as Birthday presents...

    sounds like he prefers stuff like corn syrup and hydrolized vegetable oil that gives that chemical flavour.

    I've already stopped my full time job as a Graphic Designer last month. Now I'm only a property agent, I'll make appointments and meet the clients in the property site, not in the office.

    I haven't got a full time job yet because I just want to be around and help my family for like 1 to 2 months. My brother will be having semester break for 3 weeks, in these 3 weeks I thought to go and work part time in the Casino. I've never been to a Casino but like to see one tho.

    I got pneumonia like 2 months ago I think. Now I'm doing great.

    I really enjoyed that too. I hope I get to see it again, soon. There was so much lol involved that I think I missed half the jokes. :)

    No. It has been on my right arm since June 15th.
    It was time for it to go.
    My doc may be upset but...oh well.
    The thing stunk and my arm was getting very tender and sore because it.
    Now tonight for the first time since June 15th...I can fully clean myself in the shower.

    I had a busy week at work and then yesterday I cleaned the house and moved some furniture. Last night I slept like the dead. Woke up this morning to the beautiful weather. Haven't felt this well-rested in months. :D
