JUST what I wanted to hear!  It's ok I can be the guinea pig for the WTF!  Naturally it sounded good and w/a name like that I HAD to get 2# of it!  SMDH!  Guess I may as well dive into the big bag first and report in.

Been going in the opposite direction, trying decaf lately. Don't notice any difference besides the first couple when I wake up so probably skip the caffeine. 

 

Never understood why we could go out of town and I only drink a couple cups the whole week and never had  had a problem with the lack of caffeine after so much of it when home ?

i never noticed anything physical from caffeine and i used to drink a ton of diet coke all day at work. when my heart strarted tripping out a few years ago, cardiologist said that caffeine can cause the PVCs, so i quit caffeine. I don’t drink a ton of coffee, two large mugs per day (six cups according to the markings on the coffee pot) but i drink decaf and didn’t notice ANY difference in the taste.

Oh happy days....finally got the demons out of my TT arm.  Thought I might have bad bearings even though the arm was new.  Turns out the arm is super finicky but with the new digital tracking force gauge fresh from Amazon I set the Ortofon cartridge at 1.9 and am good to go.  Dylan's Blood On The Tracks sounds marvelous!

"Magic mushrooms" contain the hallucinogenic compound psilocybin.
 
"Magic mushrooms" contain the hallucinogenic compound psilocybin.

(CNN)"Magic mushrooms" may have moved one step closer to becoming a treatment for depression.

The active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms is called psilocybin -- and a new British study suggests it could safely be used to treat depression when other drugs have failed, offering hope to millions of patients worldwide.
The study, conducted by King's College London and mental healthcare company Compass Pathways, administered psilocybin to 89 healthy adult volunteers.
The study compared the effects of 10mg and 25mg doses of psilocybin, and a placebo.
 
 
There were "no serious adverse events" and "no negative effects" on cognitive and emotional function among the volunteers that took psilocybin, according to a Compass Pathways press release. Instead, the volunteers experienced "changes in sensory perception and positive mood alteration" -- typical effects of psychedelic drugs.
"The results of the study are clinically reassuring and support further development of psilocybin as a treatment for patients with mental health problems that haven't improved with conventional therapy, such as treatment resistant depression," said James Rucker, one of the lead researchers from King's College London, in the press release.
This is just the first of two phases in their testing -- the second phase trial will involve over 200 patients with depression across Europe and North America

good for migraine and cluster headaches, too. Sposed to prevent for 6 months+ per dose

 

 

I hear it's good for preventing migraine/cluster headaches, too

 

 ditched Windows. Had linnux installed. I'll be fumbling around till I get more familiar.  Not into that kinda thing, but it is sposed to be much less trouble in the long run. The time consuming part was backing up the old stuff.Photos and that.

 

You'll prolly hear me cussing the computer periodically until I find my way around.  Lucky I remembered passwords. Didn't have them saved.

Mornin' All

 

It's a LedZeppelin AM. Into 2nd pot of coffee already. Frost on the pumpkins.

Normal chaos resumes. Had company all weekend. Friend [IT guy] called Friday afternoon ... Got a wild hair and decided to drop in .. from Albuquerque. The fog horn came on in the dog house. Visibility dropped to 2 or 3 ft. Then we went to find some mud to splash on his Jeep. It sez "Trail Rated"  and he's testing that statement. Found a wet creek to wallow it in.

He did the conversion to Linux for me. Computer is much faster w/o windows bogging it down. He put Epiphany in it... deleted microsoft, 

@BigStewMan

I think about how I abused myself, too... we survived. If we had not done what we did, would be still be around to tell the stories? Fate is what it is. I got into trouble. Wished I had not ... but, because it did happen, I don't think I would have gotten the opportunity to live in HI. Things go the way they are supposed to.

 

Had to chase down a loose connection in the stereo connections. That crackle crackle noise. Frig cats into things....  5 by 5 now.

Good luck with the OS change. I tried it about a year ago and couldn't open .jpegs , .pngs, my old saved important emails. forgot to reformat my storage drives from ntfs...... Hated the mail programs... thunderbird.. nope, evolution was a little better. After office became crap I've used eM Client and libre office.

AM Zep? :)

Good accomplishments grasshopper!  Other than my usual forums and FB I know little.  Been reading the thread on streaming and most of the jargon there is Greek to me. This morning with Jake in my lap I reached for the opened lap top with one hand and accidentally changed the language on FB to Spanish.  Now when you go to settings on FB for help it all comes up in Spanish!  Finally figured it out.

 

So Monday for me was clean up day.  Used the foam cannon on the Z4 and the leaf blower to dry it.  Looking spiffy again.  Had a cup of coffee and rested a bit and then decided to wash Jake (not with the soap cannon).  Got the shampoo, conditioner, wash cloth, turned the shower on warm, and we took a shower together (sorry no pictures Carl).  Jake looks spiffy too.

 

Another day in the slow lane........

oh hey

I have a little project.

  Replace wheelbarrow handles. I must use them hard. This is the 2 pair I've broken. It does get used regularly. Several times a week. Haul groceries, firewood, yard trash, rock/s

I with you. I don't use the computer for more than email, forums and streaming music. When he was setting it up, all of his questions were met with a blank stare and an "I don't know"

 

Ya know that we are the last generation to know what life was like w/o computers everywhere
