Moon over the Ko'olaus



Current Status:
SHIVAMOON just got the most spectacular view of the lunar eclipse, full moon glowing red in a setting of stars, one also a shimmer of red (Venus?) above a gently swaying coconut palm.

My Goals:
My goal is to be healthy, happy, sexy, fit and slim...all the good stuff.

My Program:
I was a vegetarian for more than 34 years, but in July 2009 I started eating a low fat, no junk vegan diet. This is probably the best thing I ever did to improve my health and I lost my excess weight. Guess you could say I'm full of beans now ... so here's a tip on how to cook beans from scratch so that they won't cause excess gas. Start with dry beans, rinse and soak them overnight using a pinch of baking soda per quart (or liter) of water. Drain and rinse the beans and add fresh water before cooking. If you see foam forming as the beans cook, scrape it off and toss it. If you still have a problem with gas, change the water again after the beans have been cooking for a few minutes. Cook the beans until they are tender. Keep in mind if you are just beginning to incorporate beans into your regular diet, your body needs a little time to adjust... you won't be an old gasbag forever.

Is those things arms? or is they legs?

I marvel at thee Octopus,

If I were thou, I'd call me us.

Oh SHIVAMOON I can't believe this. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology have a cam on a 3 day old albatross chick in Hawaii!: http://cams.allaboutbirds.org/channel/41/L
aysan_Albatross/ Here is what the Lab writes: "Watch an Albatross Family Grow—Live From Hawaii
We’re betting this is the smallest albatross you’ll ever see: a three-day-old Laysan Albatross chick on our newest Bird Cam. Two months ago, its parents built a nest on the north shore of Kauai, Hawaii, and started taking turns incubating. We visited last week to install one of our high-definition nest cameras just as the chick began to pip out of its egg."
I just took my first peek. I see a parent on the nest, no chick visible, and so exciting!
