Greetings Bobby Kelton, I have a question I would have loved to ask you after your spectacular performance at Floral Lakes in Delray Beach two nights ago. It was very Spectacular!
I am an author and have always wondered why it appears there is no such thing as classical humor; why humor loses meaning and power with time and even culture. You have broken that rule! Let me tell you why.
You did something totally amazing as I perceived it. In my mind, you extracted the essence of humor (the human condition) and clothed it in the cultural experience of your audience just for that evening, even down to “The Boys Supermarket” joke about the parking lot being so much bigger than the store… for sure! This is like being able to tell jokes in every language on Earth!
Is my perception correct? Do you visualize the humor in the human state and just re-clothe it in culture and local demographics for your listening audience? It sure seemed like you were talking to just me.
I cannot see how you did what you did otherwise and I am pretty imaginative. You see, you could not go back to the Johnny Carson show even if he was still alive (I do miss him). You have transcended that level of performance in your life and even though Floral Lakes does not seem as challenging as Johnny Carson on T.V. live, your performance was far better because you are now a Classical Comedian. I have never seen one before and I am not sure there is another anywhere. Congratulations!
While mainstream medicine falls into line with pharmaceutical interests and screams at you to wear sunblock and sunscreens………. there is lots of evidence that this is total stupidity! NOT to say that getting a sunburn will not harm you, here they are very correct! However tanning gradually and gently does incredible good! Here is just one of dozens of reasons to consider tanning regularly, getting daily sun exposure!
This is a great article sharing the experience of freeing yourself from the control of a materialistic hypnosis. It is not that we do not need material things, after all we are material beings. However, when they control us rather than us them, we are hypnotized and enslaved by material things. Read this great article, from Malcolm’s corners.
Have you ever had a craving for Dark Chocolate but wanted to stay on your diet? Here is the answer to your dream of having both. This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make and everyone will love it! Dr J’s Low Carb Chocolate:
6 Squares of bakers chocolate – unsweetened
3/4 stick of organic butter
Stevia (natural sweetener)
Xylitol (natural sweetener)
Place the chocolate in a glass baking dish lining the bottom of the dish with the squares. Put it over a very low fire to slowly melt the chocolate. When it is 1/2 melted, add the butter cut into small squares to melt quickly. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of Stevia pure white powder. Add 4 tablespoons of Xylitol. Finally mix in 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. Stir the mix and then place it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour. That’s all there is to it!
For fun, you can add Almonds, small amounts of raisins (high in carbs!), and I like to substitute peanut butter for butter and make a peanut dark chocolate. This will help you stay on a low carb diet and not miss the occasional chocolate fix!
This is one of my favorite recipes. It is a healthier dessert that everyone loves. I have been asked so many times for this recipe that I finally decided to publish it on my site so I don’t have to retype it. It was originally given to me by Andrea Candee, a master herbalist in S. Salem NY.
Chocolate Avocado Mousse
Can be made a couple of days ahead.
3 Medium Avocados, peeled and diced
1/2 cup of cocoa powder (or carob powder)
Stevia with a little Zylitol (some people like Agave Syrup, I think it is too high in carbs)
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest of one orange (Optional)
1/16 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 pint of Raspberries or fresh cantaloupe cut into small cubes
In a food processor puree avocados, cocoa powder and sweetener of choice. Add vanilla extract, orange and salt. Place in container in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Serve in dessert glasses and garnish with banana slices.
Here is the fun part. Never tell your guests what it is made of and they will never guess! But let them try!
Some things in nature are so mind blowing, that a picture of it says a thousand words. When I was little, I read the gristly poem Thanatopsis.
It made many children more aware of the end of life than was needed as it was forced reading in school. Did it comfort us as some claim? I think it was unlikely! Yet, it did focus on the end of “physical” being in a way few have and so it was novel and creative. This morning I also noticed such an event but I will not wax poetic, let me allow technology to do it for me.
Can you tell what it is? If not here are some words to help. The carcass is a small shriveled up mouse and the diners are large powerful brightly colored beetles of some kind. They are so strong that they lift and turn the much bigger carcass as they proceed to dine on it.
As a holistic doctor, I recommend a Paleo like diet, and here is why: Humans have lived in a primitive conditions, where they ate a Paleo diet, for at least nearly 4 million years. Four million years ago is believed to be when the first cavemen appeared. It is therefore very likely we evolved to eat basic whole foods such as meat, fish, chicken and vegetables. Grains were not common as it took civilization to cultivate and grow enough grains to create bread and other grain products. So why am I promoting a bread? Well, I did say “Paleo Like”diet. Having some grains in your diet, especially whole grains, low carb ones, in small quantities, is probably tolerable for many people. If you believe this and would like to have some bread in your diet, this may be the best choice. I love to have a hamburger now and then as part of my diet and good healthier breads like the one below make it possible. I use only grass fed beef and pickles that are fermented, not vinegar pickles. So lets talk about a bread that is good tasting and make by people who really care about quality and your health, the Julian bakery. I give them 5 Stars for ethics and quality!
