I believe the natives there call all that food..everything tastes better on a stick..lol..did you ever watch " bizarre foods with Andrew Zimmer "?..the stuff that guy eats from around the world would make your skin crawl..Lol, the best one I try to tell a story about and to this day, people tell me I am full of it but my squad buddy was just as impressed with it. He was as startled as I was. I was digging my fox hole ( in Vietnam by the way) on the side of a rocky mountain in the jungle when my entrenchen tool ( pack shovel) dug into a hole and a centipede about a two foot long and all different colors jumped out and chased me out of my fox hole.
Then one rainy night on ambush patrol,I was standing up in my spider hole ( round fox hole) and as the hole kept filling up with water and the mud started falling in from the sides,I looked down only to see a rather large black scorpion fall into my hole with the mud. I came out of that hole so fast,I don't even recall touching the sides.I laid flat on the ground the rest of the night. I don't know what I would have done if we had made contact that night with the enemy.
Then one time,back at base camp,we were tearing down a sand bag ammo bunker and building a new one when one of the guys picked up a sand bag to see a very large cobra laying in the hole. There we were,8 of us standing in a circle around this 15 foot cobra while he weaved back and forth trying to figure out wich one of us he was going to strike at. Finally, one of the guys came running through our little circle and beheaded that cobra with his shovel. The head still tried to jump around to get us. I could tell you more stories about the critters there but I might not be able to get any sleep tonight.
one of my neighbors upstate was in the submarine service...hes long retired from that and does contracting now...Choosing the Navy, specifically Submarine Service seems like it was a good choice on my part.
Yes. I watched him. ouch! He's nutz.I believe the natives there call all that food..everything tastes better on a stick..lol..did you ever watch " bizarre foods with Andrew Zimmer "?..the stuff that guy eats from around the world would make your skin crawl..
My Dad was in the Navy in WWII in the Pacific. His ship was an LST. Dad and I used to watch old movies on television of the Navy in WWll. I especially loved the submarine service so when I went to enlist, I was on my way to the Navy to enlist and hopefully for the submarine service.I made the mistake of stopping in at the Army recruiter first and he seen my skydiving jacket and told me about $55 extra a month to go into the paratroopers. My life was never the same, after that.Choosing the Navy, specifically Submarine Service seems like it was a good choice on my part.
Lot of us retired bubbleheads living in that part of the world. I was stationed in Groton twice and absolutely loved it.one of my neighbors upstate was in the submarine service...hes long retired from that and does contracting now...

Mine ate furniture when they were pups. My rottie mix Bronx was old and gray and had cancer when I gave the coffee table away to my daughter. I had intended to sell it, but a woman came to look at it and pointed out that all 4 lower corners had been chewed by dogs. The big dog teeth, when Bronx was still teething....I still miss that boy, he died in August 2017. But my Wulfwarro has stepped into the rottie spot, not that he is anything close to full blood, although his mother was supposed to be. I think daddy might have been a coonhound. he was headed for a shelter at 3 months, the girlfriend of mama's owner had him posted on Next door as a free puppy and I raised my hand by email and got him in August 2018. Got his name cuz he howled like a wookie when I crated him and left for work. Tug pic December 2019. I don't have the tall black shepherd mix anymore, but Wulfwarro is on the left, and my Shar pei mix Camelo is on the right. Camelo is 12 now, a remarkable age for a pei apparently.Yeah, my dogs, mostly the puppies, supplement their chow with whatever tool or personal item I have left unattended. Tie-wraps, screwdrivers, pruning shears and cell phone cases seem to have whatever nutrients missing from their diets. The odd rabbit, squirrel, snake, mole or inattentive bird make special appearances on the menu as well as one very decayed and smelly opossum.
That's why I never understood why Dad went Navy in the war. He never could swim a lick either.not being able to swim is an issue, love the life vest
I don't like the taste of turmeric paste, but when I run out I discover I have arthritis all over, hands wrists, knees ankles hips. I am allergic to nsaids. The capsules give me horrible heartburn. The paste made with plenty of fresh peppercorns and coconut oil, causes a little heartburn but with a meal it's tolerable and I don't know I have arthritis. I'm also a melanoma survivor. I take my turmeric paste. The dogs take theirs, Bronx lived almost 3 years bouncing around the house most of them with metastasized mast cell, he taught me quality of life is important and I started taking turmeric paste when he started bouncing like a puppy. Bronx with my Bonnie goat, 2012.I use to make the turmeric paste and give it to my older dogs, I tasted it once and yuck, so I stick to turmeric in capsules,I know the turmeric isnt as activated as the paste, but some is better than none I started growing fresh turmeric and use that for cooking, it has a better taste than the dried stuff, next is to start growing ginger, thats also great for dogs and humans...
I actually do cook with fresh ginger, and it's tasty, but without the turmeric paste I'm almost crippled. Better to be mobile. I grow some ginger, indoors, haven't managed to locate a starter root for turmeric yet.try using more fresh ginger in cooking, that is also online with turmeric for arthritis and is a great anti inflammatory..and tastes a heck of alot better than turmeric..
