After 10 years…

I’ve been working off and on with the blood type diet for over 10 years now.  In all that time I’ve always stated that I’m not affiliated with D’Adamo and that I just use their information.

Not anymore… lol

I found out they have an affiliate program.  Pretty Cool, eh? 😀

Simply purchasing items from them through my link gives you the same prices and benefits of purchasing from them directly.

  • Your order is processed by them, so I never drop the ball for you.
  • The prices you pay are exactly the same as always.
  • No mlm or pyramid schemes or anything… I simply get a small fee for each purchase I send their way.
  • You end up helping a small family survive in the mountains. (Jobs are as rare as an honest politician!)

That’s it!  Pretty simple, eh?

The blood type diet information has literally changed my life. I certainly hope you implement it in your own life… so you can experience this too! 🙂

A Clean Shot of Espresso… Oh Yeah!

A good cup of espresso is sweet, creamy and delicious, with a smooth caffeine kick to it… a bad cup of espresso will ruin your whole day with too much acid and give you an upset stomach and the jitters.

The A blood type can benefit from a bit of coffee now and again… so I usually have a cup or two too many.  The acid helps with digestion and it’s not too terrible on the body… in small amounts.

I spent a couple months as a barista last year and learned how to make divine espresso.  Took me a ton of videos and nearly 2 months of practice. (those poor customers.)  End result?  I now know what a superb cup of espresso looks and tastes like… and how to make one occasionally.

Here’s a double shot of espresso that I pulled using a Krups 4030 espresso machine. My wife picked it up for a few dollars at the thrift shop (thanks to whoever donated it!).  Unlike the smaller models, this Krups is an actual espresso machine with a pump… and not just a steamer toy. 🙂

Doesn’t that look just tasty?  I’m sipping it now with soymilk and it’s delicious. 🙂

Anyone interested in how to grind and pack this machine for a shot like that?

Azadirachtin Burned Me Again…

Sucks to be sitting here looking at bud that isn’t dry.  I had to go source some a few days ago, to span the gap. (I currently have a very small flower room) I can’t stand speed-dried cannabis but in retro-spect I guess I should have bit the bullet. lol

The local dispensaries are not an option… truly disgusting stuff they have going there, so I go to the trouble of tracking down another grower that says they grow cleanly.  I should know better.

I’ll admit, they most likely used the azadirachtin product -before- flowering the plants… in the end it doesn’t matter.  After 6 bowls through the bong, it was undeniable that a growing taste/feel of azadiractin carrier oil was present.  A few more bowls and other tokers were able to notice it as well.  How sad. 😦

I know plenty of growers that believe “there’s nothing left at harvest, when I spray in veg” and that’s just not correct.  The residual is below your threshold of detection… yes.  People who medicate 24/7 like I do have serious issues with the bio accumulation of azadirachtin that they don’t notice.

I have yet to try it… I want to treat a mum with an azadiractin product, about 5ml/gallon, in a root drench.  Then take cuttings, root them and flower them out.  I want to see just how long term this is and how much you have to grow a plant out for me not to notice it.  Even then I’m leaning toward just eliminating it as an option completely.

At this point… if I ever get mites again… I’m considering just tearing down and bombing the room a couple times.  It really pays to keep the room clean and minimize contact with potential infection sources during flower runs.

Only a few more days left anyway…

Keep it Clean!
