Fasting Day 10 … The End

. This evening my 10 day fast ends. I have decided to cease this depredation. Eye, ear, nose and throat have returned to reasonable normalcy. Left lymph node shrunk to normal, right side is close. My skin has largely cleared up with little of the excessive dryness and flaking I had two weeks ago. My chest congestion has gone from severe bronchitis to tiny bits of flem expelling what it can of the nastiness in our air. Sure, I would likely see more healthy progress were I to continue, but I am just tired of it. I want to enjoy meals, an occasional beer or two, and a return to the social aspects of eating regular meals like, and mostly […]

Ukraine overview, big picture, history

I watched a great presentation on the real situation in Ukraine. Alexander Mercouris published this video on the February 24th, 1-year anniversary of Russian troops crossing the Ukraine border. He explains many things that lamestream media does not even come close to, or deliberately obfuscates. I so strongly dislike that You-tube/Google track and data mine all visitors to their sites that I spent two days trying to work around it. I use a video downloader for all the ew toob videos I watch. Most of the time I have been able to upload and repost them via my Brighteon channel so I could share without the tracking and data mining features. That didn’t work for this one. Today I ferreted […]

Bitterroot Bugle under attack

This website is constantly under attack. Perhaps adolescents trying their hand at hacking because some teens like tipping over outhouses, making messes and destroying the productivity of others… but I doubt it. A more likely possibility is someone hoping to hack in so they can make their marketing pitches to my small audience… I doubt that one as well. I am a tiny voice among those who are hacking at the root of the evil that is trying to destroy humanity, nature and life in this otherwise beautiful world. They would love to swat this mosquito … along with other annoyances both small and large. A few weeks ago I received notification of a bigger than normal attack sent […]

Fasting along – Day 7 report

Looking at a websearch on what others have shared about fasting, I tripped over a new-to-me phrase that fits well: therapeutic fasting. Upon finding out that I am fasting, the normal first assumption is that I am working for weight loss. Not that my 6′ 175-pound figure appears to be overly plump, but few can come up with another answer to “Why a person would skip meal after meal for days on end?” As I begin Day 7 of this fast, I weigh in at 163 … down 12 pounds. However my love handles are still apparent and poochy belly is still there … but those won’t be apparent to others until swim suit season … an event I […]

scary white riflemen

The beings who wish unrestricted rule over the 3% of us who survive their ongoing genocide have a problem… actually more like 130,000,000 problems. Gun owners are not likely to give up their families, homes, belongings to climb into the cattle cars. Armed resistance works a heckuva lot better than cut flowers and peace signs. They know this. Despite my headline, this is really not a racial issue, though since the beginning of the Gay Kenyan illegal White House occupation, race has deliberately become a divisive issue and white MEN are their specific enemies – putting us on the front lines whether we want it or not. This comes up, tediously, again because their disarmament attempts come up again. […]

World War: February 21st

When all else fails, they take us to warThey have rolled up to direct confrontation before, backing down at the last moment. Hopefully that will happen again. However, a whole lot of big guns are facing off this week, starting Tuesday. Provocations by USofA/NATO have continually been met by cooler heads in Moscow and Beijing. There are signs that their stepping back to avoid disastrous conflict may be ending. A year or so ago, USofA navy ships resumed carrying nuclear weapons. Something the big three had agreed to not do as of several decades ago. Of course Russia and China leadership feel threatened by this behavior. Now Norwegian intelligence reports that the Russian navy has reciprocated. They are no longer […]

FastTing

I am now certain that the ketosis state of fasting arrived this time almost immediately. In that phase, the body has settled into a ‘cave-man’ mode that can sustain it until the hunting and foraging delivers more food. For people of typical USofA lifestyle, that takes about four days on a diet of water only. I am now into Day 3. My bowel purged Saturday (Day 1). The low-grade fever that I have experienced around bed-time with every fast I undertook also began Saturday – which surprised me for arriving so soon. By Sunday my recently chronic congestion was reduced. I was somewhat disbelieving that I could be in the healing phase of ketosis THIS EARLY. Today, however, I am […]

FastTed

Pre-Script: Yes. I think I’m back. More on that in a later post. – Ted I began another fast after dinner Friday. This evening that will make 2 days, or 48 hours since my last meal. You might be asking similar questions as my tummy is at this point. Did your throat get cut? Do we have to go through this AGAIN? Are the grocery stores empty already? Did you spend all your shopping money on web hosting? It is none of those. As you may have seen here previously, I studied, then experienced my first fast in 2017. Not that I planned it that way, but it has worked out to be something I have been inspired to […]
