    Paul B replied to a thread NFL playoffs in The Rec Room
    I watch a couple NFL games a year, the NFC championship if the Seahawks are in it and the Superbowl. Glad I watched today, relatively benign through most of it but exciting with 5 minutes left and OT. I could care less who wins to be honest.

    I read pretty much the entire article originally posted to this thread, overall interesting. Some of the info wasn't to new but I have been a fairly balanced eater as thats how it was at our house. Meat and potatoes with veggies kind of thing with a rotation of chicken, pork, beef and some fish as well as rice and noodles. Almost always we had a salad or other vegetable serving and where I grew up, you ate what you were served and liked it! Or Dad would get that stern note in his voice and you would go to bed hungry. These days we try to do the same by having a protein, vegetable and starch of some sort for dinner at least. Weekdays I have stopped the milk and cereal routine that I was back on for a couple years, it was giving me heartburn each day so now its a banana, apple or pear while driving in. Couple of ham and cheese sandwiches, boiled egg with a pinch of sea salt, mixed nuts, a yoghurt and a granola and/or a fibre bar of some sort with about 1 to 1.5 liters of water through most work days. I still love a burger and its now done to one burger meal with my little buddy per fortnight, we share the regular fries and a rootbeer, thats about the only soda he gets. We do a lot of water and juice at home and he still gets milk. Anyhoo, probably TMI, back to what you were doing!

    Paul B replied to a thread sushi in The TreeHouse Kitchen
    My kid ate raw fish sushi last week for the first time, he has had cucumber rolls, California rolls and dynamite rolls before but not the fish. Tried salmon and tuna roll, loved it. FWIW I have also taken raw steak and carved a bit off for consumption, its not that big of a deal #steaktartar

    Paul B replied to a thread sushi in The TreeHouse Kitchen
    I would never consider a bottom feeder for sushi and I think the salt water fish are better protected against parasites vs lake fish but I am no ichthyologist. Around here when the lake is turning over in its thermal spring and fall the lakes get turbid and the fish taste 'muddy'. The locals know better than to eat them at that time.

    Last place I worked we had GPS in every truck and the skid steer etc. Real time tracking, email warnings when speed limits exceeded, idle time exceeds 5 minutes, sudden starts / stops, printable location data trail. Its so nice when a client calls and says the crew didnt show up 2 weeks ago, 30 seconds at the computer and you can say yes, they were there 9 days ago for 41 minutes in the 1 ton and the crew consisted of tom, dick and harry, they arrived at 1:18 pm. We used Fleet complete.

    Around here we get intersection 'stings', basically cops hiding behind concrete pillars etc and popping out at red lights to see if anyone is yabbering or texting. Also, if you have the keys in the ignition, you can be busted for distracted driving, even picking up your phone to look at the display can get you a ticket.

    Paul B replied to a thread apple problem in Tree Care and Health
    could be cedar / apple rust, I cant see the underside of the leaves well enough though. Similar to pear trellis rust where the juniper are the winter host and the pear is the summer host of the disease. only cure is to remove one of the hosts for at least a 100 foot distance.

    Well that is still recycling but in a more personal way. :) I have tried GF pizza and one brand of GF pasta, I cant say they were great but if'n you don't have the choice, make the best of it! One of our family friends and one of my bosses at work are celiac, its tough to find grub around the house when they visit. I usually start them in with lots of sangria and fruit lol

    Paul B replied to a thread Hammock life in Odds and Ends
    MB Quite comfy so far for me, laying slightly off center can be more comfy than what most people do with the straight lie. That is legs off to the right a bit and torso off to the left a bit. Gary, indeed, I have one with a tarp system currently but I can't see it being enough in a downpour that we get, the one I bought but dont have yet might fare better as the tarp is a bit bigger. Surely not limb resistant though

    I had zero hammocks until about 18 months ago, now I have 5 and 1 more on the way. If anyone is interested in them check out this kickstarter campaign, I am in at a medium level, looks like a cool product and its just ever so different than my other ones so I can call it necessary. :) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bakpocketproducts/adventurers-hammock-use-a-hammock-lose-the-tent

    I started with a belt and saddle from Justin then got a basic Weaver leg strap model, had a used backup Buckingham butt strap then retired from climbing. Go hang in a few saddles at your local tree guy store, its all up to personal taste and use IMHO.
