Sunnyside, the book of Good Things to know:


Good thing James Rockford doesn't have to paint for a living because his hands wouldn't be worth a shit from hitting people.

I've seen where a construction worker had given himself a broken hand by smacking a wall because he got mad at his girlfriend. He was stupid enough to give himself an injury that could give him pain for the rest of his life and all because of a little spat. On top of it he had some medical bills and the inability to work to pay for them.

I got the idea for this bit from an episode of Jay Leno's Tonight Show. They had a kid on the show who broke some boards with his bare hands. It was obvious the boy was coerced by his father, and in my opinion the young boy would have rather not been breaking boards with his hands.

Full contact Karate shit, like breaking boards, seams pretty silly when you get old and your hands are all busted up. Look at your grandparents hands. What you see there are years of hard work. Just ask them – they'll probably tell yah that they're sure glad they didn't start out by smashing them into things. When I see people make their kids go on TV and break some boards. I think it is disgusting because nobody is telling him about arthritis pain. With arthritis pain you can pretty much about forget about sleeping-in in the mornings; or playing a musical instrument.

I think forms of yoga and stuff, to boot, are real good for exercise to promote good heath.

From the Health & Environment column :

Grow Organic

It looks as though organically grown food is the up and coming thing in Great Britain. They expect about half as much yield and it takes two years before they can call it organic.  I feel the farmers switching over to organic farming methods are really taking a gamble on making it through the first few years. They have to look back at their past to figure out what their grand parents did as well as trying to use the knowledge gained through technology. I'm confident that I would be trying the same thing if I was them. I'd wish them all the luck.

I was talking to a farmer buddy of mine and he said as soon as man plants in a controlled environment, the natural abilities for the plant's to survive gets messed up.

Most plants in their natural environment are in a mix of other different types of plants. The different plants have different pests. With a mix, the natural predator thing works better. Like the ladybugs which eat the spider mites.
              I would guess if I was going to try to grow organically I would want to rotate harvesting different types of plants if I could. I would work smaller patches and run more of a verity of types of vegetables.
