Well the trip to the doc was a little discerning, they actually were going to do some test, both were a little invasive, up the wee wee and through the poop shoot, but alas, after contemplating the cost, we have insurance, but 20 percent of 3 grand is still 600 bones. On the up side, I may have closed a small project, its in bum fk ejip, but not for very long. it is not optimal as the primary contact holder is an unlicensed Con Tractor, but he seems to have a good head on his shoulder and some decent experience. Not as bad as Joe homeowner trying to contract out a project, “nightmare on elm street” well not always. the last project went pretty smooth, but the owner was at least a contractor of sorts, but he did use some tatctics the large contractors use, which is pesky, but unless you get into a bad contract, there are always a way counteract to the tricks used by the hard tack contractors. He was actually fun to work with, until the covid thing came, and my paranoia was activated. O yeah the doc, well the steam thing has one bad potential fallback, or side effect, ok more that one.

I was watching another Course on the Great Courses and one lecture was talking about Restricted Calorie diet, and it is not new, according to history there is a CAt from (I know my grammar is getting worse, not better, o well) Padua in Italy, and he was about 40 sickly and switched to the RC diet, and lived to 102 or 98, one of those, so my mission is clear, it will not be easy, but perserverence and will power shall rue the day for me. Now, this diet thing has me intriged, as we speak, I wanted to go buy a rib eye, but now… we shall see. I know in another lecture, it had been said that RC works regardless of your food selection, but that seems implasable at best. I need more research, One thing that was very interesting is that a high metabolixm is not as good as we have told. I know, get your metobolic rate up… I still have t figure more out, as the starvation mode can be a way of life. o if you want to know about this guy from Italy. see here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luigi_Cornaro I will be looking up his papers, he wrote one about long life and longevity, and how people are fat, yeah really? well he had no Idea, wonder what he would think after going to walmart in this day and age? ok well I am getting weary. I think I will write something fun.. let see
I ordered his book here is an exerpt from Wiki
When he was about 40, Cornaro found himself exhausted and in poor health, a condition he attributed to a hedonistic lifestyle with excessive eating, drinking, and sexual licentiousness. On the advice of doctors, he began to adhere to a calorie restriction diet specially for morbid obese/anorexia nervosa persons, centered on the “quantifying principle” of restricting himself to only 350g of food daily (including bread, egg yolk, meat, and soup) and 414 mL of wine. His book Discorsi della vita sobria (Discourses On the Temperate Life), which described his regimen, was extremely successful, and “was a true reconceptualization of old age. As late as the Renaissance it was largely the negative aspects of this phase of life which were emphasized … Cornaro’s method offered the possibility for the first time not only of a long but also a worthwhile life.” After his conversion to a holistic lifestyle, he remained in vigorous health well into old age.
In 1550, when Cornaro was about 83, he was urged to write down his secrets of health, and its English translation, often referred to today under the title The Sure and Certain Method of Attaining a Long and Healthful Life, went through numerous editions; he wrote three follow-ups in 1553, 1558, and 1562. The first three were published at Padua in 1558. They are written, says Joseph Addison, in the early 18th century periodical The Spectator (No. 195), “with such a spirit of cheerfulness, religion and good sense, as are the natural concomitants of temperance and sobriety.” Friedrich Nietzsche criticized the work for mistaking the consequence with the cause, insisting that Cornaro’s diet is not the cause of his long life, but rather that the cause of his long life – which Nietzsche gives as his slow metabolism – is the reason for his diet.
Cornaro maintained that longevity was desirable and “God wills it”. He rejected ascetics who believed man must suffer in this life to attain salvation in the next, arguing that there was no reason one could not enjoy both his earthly existence and his heavenly one. In addition, he rejected conventional wisdom that old age was a period of misery and decay, writing “And now some sensual and unreasonable individuals pretend that the existence of a man after he passes the age of 65 cannot be termed a living one, but a dead one. I will plainly demonstrate that they are mistaken, for I have a desire that all men should attain my age, which is the most beautiful period of life.” He also commented that at the age of 83, his health was good, he could perform most functions unassisted, and he had a wide circle of younger friends and correspondents. Cornaro also firmly condemned those with a live-fast-and-die-young mentality, stating that “They don’t stop and consider the virtue of ten more years of active life, at a point where we’ve reached a high point of experience and wisdom, two things that can only be honed with time.”
