chinese language

Howdy gang, me again, I hope everyone is feeling good today, not sick or tired or feeling depressed.  today I am writting to you about learning a new language.

I have been meandering and playing around with learning chinese.  I have several apps on my android and a few books helping to do this. what is interesting about this language is how the word structures are just so different.

example, You and I would say, I went to the library yesterday at something o clock, they say it I, yesterday, to the library, at o clock went,  something like this, or it is I yesterday, at o clock to the library went, not sure,  I am finding it hard to learn. it is a slow process for me. after a year and a half trying to learn it I still cant speak hardly any of it.

I am curious have any of you tried to learn chinese, or  korean or some language that is quite different from english or your native language? What helped you to learn it andwhat problems have you had?  what is really neat is if you google translate english into chinese it comes up and all you have to do is type your sentence into the box andit translates it into tradition or simplifed characters and I  use my pleco camara to translate to pinyin. really cool.

today it is so cold out and light dusting of snow I am like stuck in the house, not feeling well either, kind of feel like I am getting a sinus infection, hopfully just my normal allergies bothering me.  So I am looking at my grammar and reading and writting chinese text books I just got a couple of days ago.

anyway here aer some more pictures for you to enjoy.

saropod leg. wow what a big crittor they were.

terrorbird said to run down animals bigger than themselves, sorry guys I find this hard to believe, in fact I am more inclined to believe they ate fruit and small animals that could swallow whole. mans imagineation is wonderful and all but it should never replace logic and evidence.

now I ask you what possible use could thos long canines serve? they would get in the way of biting and tearing and eating.

EPSON MFP image

This is my theropod, carnivorus, height about 10-20ft at shoulder, length average about 20 feet to 30 feet or so, biped, diet is of carrion, top speed probably based on way of movement, weight which is about 20,000 lbs give or take,, and  height I say 10 mph. Type, reptile, habitat tropical to subtropical,  teeth types, crushing, breaking, tearing. profile, surfboard straight, on two very enormous legs muscular and strong, bulky,  Since these guys are so heavy per foot and on two legs I think of them like humans very careful and slow moving, after all that head is about 20 ft off the ground and they cannot afford to fall or trip or get knocked over. their weight would shatter their bones even in a minor fall. Even a minor injury can be fatal, skin type, smooth, probably very colorful and why not, todays reptiles (especially lizards can be very colorful)have lots of color and textures and skin surface types from smooth to rough to horned etc.

my guy here is about full grown, and loves water and wet places especially when it is hot. possibly cold blooded with 3 chambered enormous heart, smallish brain with average size cortex, possibly binocular vision,  good sense of smell, possibly gave some parental care and protection, most likely as guard while baby eats what it can catch. It not known for sure whether they cared as birds do bringing food to their young, some evidence suggests some types of dinosaurs did drag food to them but that is not confirmed. The evidence is there but is open to interpretation as there are a lot of possible explanations for many of the physical evidences found, what ideas do you have as to how they looked, how they lived, how they moved and how they died?.

What killed off the prehistoric animals including the dinos? massive asteroid? there is evidence for such enormous objects hitting the earth and shattering and burning damage, some say volcanos, evidence of that exists especially in Siberia for extreme volcanic activity large enough to kill off most life, was it disease? Some are still trying to figure it out, but no one knows for sure, all we know is these asteroids and eruptions did happen but could it had happened before the earth even had life on it yet? could it have happened shortly after a atomosphere was being formed? could it have happened before land ever appeared, or since there was a time during noahs day that all land was underwater almost a year, and the upheavals moved whole mountains, shake rattle and roll mixing up everything disguising real time frames here? all the evidence could of got mixed up in the layers and conveying the idea that they volcanos and asteroid were during the same period as dinos since they appear in same layers.

And scientists agree that continents  move and change and push against each other and push some up while others go down, could this not change the layering system hiding the real time line? When volcanos erupt, earthquakes happen or massive landslides and such could that not also mess up the layering effect of time conveying wrong time sequences? More questions then answers don’t you think.  I do hope you like my dinosaur, I tried to draw and color from memory as I said I am still learning and practicing.

Good bye all, thanks for visiting.

prehistoric disasters documentary

I just finished watching this documentary on Netflix, I want to give a review, I give it a 3 stars, *** this is why.  the data they gave for their proof of what they think happened seemed sound enough, the charcoal layers in the earth that were found all over the earth indicating some kind of earth wide fire or burning of some kind of plants and animals,  the large crators found indicating very large meterorites or asteroids hitting some time in the past,  some feel it was a massive volcano eruption since they have found a large volcanic field the size of Alaska in Siberia, which if it occurred when life was existing, then it would block out the sun, cause massive die off of plants and then the animals, causing massive darkness for months, global cooling, stuff like that.

The believe based on the size of the crators, and the evidence of how far the debris field was that the massive asteroid that they think wiped out 95 percent of the crittors, was traveling about 45000 mile per hour, they indicated that where it hit could not have been the worst place to hit,  with all the chances of hitting somewhere else being high, why did it hit that spot in the yucatan where there is high sulfer deposits, causing massive spewing of sulfer dioxide and burning particles and co2 rise blocking out the sun, cooling the planet, etc you get the picture.

the first episode spoke about a collision of the earth and another body that became the moon, and the moon was much closer, causing massive tidal waves, the earth was moving faster too, causing severe weather, there was a 21 day cycle, some even think the earth had a 6 hour day, I wonder if we were alive then if we could feel the effects of an earth going that fast?  now these believed facts seem okay to me, after all the bible does not tell us how the planets were formed, how the earth was prepare for our future arrival nor how long a day is when dealing with millions of years,  he doesn’t tell us, being a forever living person he wasn’t in no hurry. time for him is meaningless unless he is dealing with his servants who are aware of time and base our lives on it. This includes the angels by the way.

the second episode I watched spoke about how meteorites carry water hitting the earth and making water accumulate on earth, I heard this idea before called the star water theory, anyway it spoke about how enough water accumulated allowing for the soup for the mixing of chemicals including amino acids,  creating life,  when they said this their logic and understanding of how life works fell flat?

when they start speaking about something that contradicts their own understanding of laws of physics, chemistry, life, then they enter the realm of self worship and blind faith. They are essentially trying to get around divine intervention and purpose. For some reason or another the belief in a divine being as creator and ruler over his own creation just bugs the heck out of them and they have to get rid of him at all costs. I don’t know why anyone  would want to remove a person who went through the massive trouble of billions of years to create the universe then the earth and then eventually life in the forms of simple things scientists call them, to the sea creatures to the dinosaurs and the time period required to prepare the earth for our arrival, who created us so beautifully, and this planet being so beautiful and so comfortable (except for winters but that is another story) who gave us color and beautiful creatures and a mind that can go beyond just existing and survival for a few years then dying off, ability to build on previous knowledge to ask questions, to appreciate things like a beautiful bird or rainbow, ot have friendships that are strong and enjoyable, I mean I want to know who this person is and why he did this and what his purpose for us is in the future? wouldn’t you ?

Since the bible does not tell us how long a day is we can only guess and scientists do have a lot of data indicating that the earth is billions of years old, I can accept that, that life on it has been here for millions or even a billion years starting with sea life (which the bible indicates he created life in the seas first and the flying creatures (the Hebrew word used means winged creatures),  then the larger animals came on the scene gradually,  the atmosphere  gradual clearing before creating the sea creatures, allowing for water plants to create oxygen, for the sun to shine through, the clearing of the gases such as co2 falling due to the plants (before he created the land animals by the way) the dry land gets plants and as these develop over time the animals being created to eat those plants down to prepare the earth soil with organic material (the dinosaurs were perfect for the job being such large plant eaters) I can imagine if no animals ate the plants down for thousands of years then they would be overgrown and large, so the earth was gradually being prepared for us, by the way I am wondering, if the asteroid was so large fast and managed to get through the atmosphere and was devastating enough to destroy all the plants and animals causing global cooling for so long, I am wondering if possible Jehovah removed the animals first, (or the volcano idea) since their purpose was no longer needed, or maybe the volcano or asteroid hit before  the animals on land were created? maybe to burn down the vegetation to add nutrients to the soil? I cannot imagine him using cruel methods to destroy animals,

I mean in the garden of eden animals were at peace with each other, (they would still die of old age) and the predators job was to eat them after they died naturally. animals did not start killing each other until after adam and eve sinned and satan rulership began. they did not become a danger till then too, and man a danger to them, till after the sinning occurred. Also man did not become a danger to their fellow man either till after the couple sinned. So Jehovah is a God of peace and kindness and love and justice, so naturally he would not be cruel to man or animals. including prehistoric earth animals.

So my guess is either the animals were not there during those catastrophes or they occurred before life began at all and man has misread the timetable of the earth. It is possible only plants burned and sea creatures were the only ones around yet, don’t know, even with all the data they have when something occurred and how its effected life on it is still subject to wide speculation. They do not know the effects after all there are multiple factors involved for example while methane is a greenhouse gas, co2 is too, co2 also acts like a coolant under certain circumstance,  the suns changes affect the climate too, while the sun was temporarily blocked out, and the plants died, this released a lot of co2 which would warm things up or cool things down more, no one knows for sure. the blocking of the sun by volcano ash or asteroid hit may have lasted only a short time, while the sparks from the asteroid may have caused massive fires to break out over the world the massive heat would of caused rain to fall in the clouds that evaporation and spewing of all that water into the air would of caused, right? does this make logical sense?

there are just to many factors that they missed or are ignoring to know for sure what happened, I think the humble and modest thing to do is just to say we don’t know for sure. we must always remember human wisdom is very limited our ability to read the earth and it’s signs is in it’s infancy,  trying to read the earth and predict what the future may hold (some volcano in the middle of the usa  may erupt causing devastation all over the northern hemisphere which due ot happen due to it heating up, or we are due for another asteroid hit or global warming is going to kill us all or predicting what the future will hold with regard to how hot the planet will get etc) all these things reminds me of people who used to look to the sun, stars and looked into the liver of animals or for other signs of predicting the future, (astrology, numerology, palm reading, taro cards, etc)

we have to be careful to separate the data found in the earth from the superstitious idea of predicting the future long in advance based on those findings. and we have to be careful to separate these facts from treating speculation as fact too. Basically what I am saying is we need to be totally honest when evaluating data and studies of the earth and life on it now and in the past.

Good day fellow people, hope you enjoyed this, I am still working on my dinos for part two, I want to do a good job, something pleasant look at.EPSON MFP image

one drawing I did looks like a cross between a lizard, cat, lol

 

my dinos part one

Just so you know I used some artistic license on some of these, just for fun, since no one really knows what they looked like as far as colors and patterns are concerned.

EPSON MFP image

my spinosarus, they say he was a fisherbeast, based on the skull shape I tend to agree looks like dolphins beaks, long narrow with pointed teeth for grabbing fish. they probably ate other things like small mammals or reptiles  if they could get them, like great blue herons do today.

EPSON MFP image

I forget what dino this guy is, but aint he pretty? looks almost like he has a hat on.

EPSON MFP image

This guy has been drawn in many ways some were very rhino like with plates and heaviness all around some drew him more lightly with smooth skin, hence more horse like. this guy was said to be able to gallop also.

EPSON MFP image

I used artistic license on this one because this animal just so reminds me of a very large horse rhino cross. so I made him to be such. lol

EPSON MFP image

don’t know what to make of this guy, gorgonops, he just to strange for words. almost like a cat crossed with a reptile.

EPSON MFP image

I like this guy because he is just so decorated with horns.

EPSON MFP image

this guy is called a prosaurapod  he is a bit embellished here, just for fun.

EPSON MFP image

protosuchus or something like that, ran on all fours was said to be one of the first large predators before the tyrannoasaurs came on the scene, I think, not sure, just was cool looking.

EPSON MFP image

hadrosarus  they got pretty large something like 7 tons or something like that, just a big herbivore all around. they think the horn on it’s head was for making calling sounds for communication and possibly self defense.

EPSON MFP image

was going for a scutesuckus, really bony plated and bumped, semi erect legs, out to the side, forgot what that is called,

so these are just some of my dinos/prehistoric crittors. I have more and will do more just for fun, as long as it is cold out will be spending time drawing otherwise will postpone them for later when the weather is really bad.

 

 

SATANS TACTICS

With the birth of the Messianic Kingdom, Isiaiah 9:7

as with the birth of Jesus back in the first century, came as  a joyful occassion as in the past as now, with blessings for mankind who accept and partake of it. For those knowledgable about the progression of this “Throne of David” and how the seed promised at Gensis 3:16 would progress through the line of the tribe of Judah down to Jesus birth from this tribe to his death the removal of the natural isrealites as God’s special possession to allowing all to be part of his Kingdom blessings this is a reminder.

Each progression of God’s blessings and rulership came a rival Kingdom, determined to turn all away from the Kingdom of God that would impart life. In job 2 you can read how Satan accused Job of serving God out of selfish reasons and how God allowed satan limited access to test Job. Was God unsure of Jobs integrity? nah, it was to show the angels and to others who would learn of this account that yes there are people who serve God out of love and respect and not for what they could get out of him.

What is one tactic he uses? Well what is one thing humans have a strong desperate need for? you guessed it, a spritiual need, the need to go beyond basic human survival, look how inquisitive man’s mind is, how many questions he has and how he searches for them. Satan exploits this need (along with our physical needs too) to satisfy them in the wrong way. He has created rival gods, most people know that there are no such things as gods in the material universe, the sun or stars are not living beings, and that idols are nothing. This is just so obvious, yet there are gods that people make without ever realizing it unless it is pointed out, (I didnt notice it either).
one of those gods enviromentalism, (yea I know it is not a religion in most people’s minds) this is the idea that the most important thing to tackle and care for is the enviorment, and who would argue that? But when it becomes all consuming, and it’s mandates are based on conjecture, opinion, and false science, and adherents are considered heretics if they disagree or critically ask questions, then how is this different then religions of the past? if adherents are unwillingly to adjust their thinking based on new information, then you have a problem.

Another god is science, it is treated as sacred by alot of people, people set their clocks, lives, goals and understanding on it sometimes without much thought, or question. So I guess scientists are the priests of this religion. When one is worshipping man in any shape and form this becomes a dangerous precedent. Much of science, especially science of man’s orgins and future prospects, then they enter the realm of faith, as the evidence of thier conclusions is sparse at best,  yes they do manage to get some facts right, and I applaud that since science has helped us so much in so many ways it would fill a set of encyclopedias, but when a priest of science has his own bias, or beliefs system and is operating on assumptions before he even does his studies, and research that taints his conclusions. And when these priests are subject to peer or social or financial pressures to conform to preconceived ideas of supporters of the research, politicians, investors, etc, this god satan has used very well in getting people to come to wrong conclusions on things, how else do you think he is misleading the entire inhabited earth? Revelation 12:9-12

But you see people do not see satans influence in enviromentalism or science, to them it is always good, tho maybe applied wrongly sometimes but certainly not controlled by some unseen spirit. in fact science surly has proven satan and the demons as just superstitious. Hum, do you suppose satan has been very successful in convincing people (who have not really done their research)that he does not exist? that he has been successful in turning people away from Jehovah?

Lets take violence as an example, yes there has always been violence nothing new there, most people do not regard wanton violence and cruelty as the work of an invisible wicked spirit creature. many think that such things are a result of the evil inherent in human nature and the the main cause of evil is our own dark instincts.

Others theorize that a group of the wealthy and powerful or a shadowy global network has been manipulating people for decades in order to rule the world.   The definiton of wanton is unruly, mean, cruel, unjustified, uncalled for, for those who do not know.

Then there are those who blame the national governments and rulers for all the injustice and suffering they see. Since the beginning of time the devils thrist for power has also been reflected in politics and religion.  Revelation depicts political powers as wild beasts to whom the devil has given great authority. it also describes the shameless alliance between politics and religion as disgusting spiritural adultery. (Revelation 13:2; 17:1,2)

Think of the oppression, enslavement, wars and ethnic conflicts over the centuries that have resulted in the loss of millions of lives. can anyone honestly say that the shocking and horrifying events that have tainted the pages of human history were the normal activity of humans? Or were they the result of manipulation by unseen wicked spirit forces?

why does Jehovah allow satanic rule? Because satan contended that Jehovah was a bad ruler, and that humans would never serve him unselfishly. He allows humans to prove satan a liar, clear reproach on his name and their own. Satan in  his egotistic attitude was given up to a disapproved mental state. In his approach to eve he had evidently been contradictory in his own reasoning for he was charging God with unfair unrightous exercise of sovereignty and at the same time was evidently counting on Gods fairness: He seemed to think that God would consider himself obliged to let him live on if he proved his charge concerning the unfaithfulness of God’s creatures.

So the question is a moral one not one of might. But because of Gods invisibility and because Satan has exerted every effort to blind men’s minds Jehovahs power or even his existence has at times been questioned.

One of his  most successful methods of deception is using religious leaders who have an air of respectiblity and integrity taking on Gods name and pretending to be rightous and in harmony with God’s will. IN fact Jesus showed this to be the case, when he said  “lord lord did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name and perform many powerful works in your name?” matthew 7:22-23 What was his response to the question? “Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

Satan has enormous influence, he is called “the god of this system of things.” 2 corinthians 4:4. Sometimes he even pretends to be a good spirit, when in fact his intent is wicked. He craves worship, and wants people either knowingly or unknowingly to give him such worship.

HIs three main facets of his “House” to control people is politics, false religion, big business or economics. He uses propaganda that pretty much touches everything, he takes a good thing like science and technology and philosphy and perverts it. His intentions is simply keep people so busy, divided, and distracted they do not take any note of the time and season we are in regard to Jehovahs will and purpose. He especially targets those who are serving Jehovah. His goal is to get you to stop serving him and lose out on life. you see he lost out due to his own cultivated greed and selfishness, so now he is going to be destroyed, he is so hateful, spiteful and envious of those who are headed for life, he is doing all he can to sabatoge them. If he can’t have life he doens’t want anyone else to get it either. Does this attitude sound familiar?

I have read expressions to that affect, that is not fair he has more than me, share and share alike, no one should have more than another, you cannot have a bike because your sibling isn’t old enough to have one to and it would be unfair. Do you see what I mean? Social justice is a term that basically means those with less are envious and jealous of those who have more whether it is initiative, or innovative ability, or very intelligent, or self sufficient, more honestly earned wealth, or success in some other endeavor those who are jealous dont get to have, either because they lack ability or oppertunity or just because they are lazy and havent applied themselves to anything and would rather drag others down then lift themselves up.

terms like these, the use of semantics can have powerful effects for good or bad. Enviromentalism had a good conotation in times past, it was concerned with real problems, not fabricated ones like we have today. Any good endeavor, any good purpose will be hijacked by satan one way or another to pervert it to his own ends. Even in politics, if a very good and decent person wants to make things better strives for an office of great power, he will be hijacked in some way or another to be corrupted or he will be ousted or even murdered.

He will use the need for basics of life, which is what trade and economics were originally for, (not to gain power over others or create poverty for others) has been perverted to greed is good, use of economic control over others to plunder and siphon off the wealth of others without having contributed to it in anyway. He uses his whole house to cover all the bases of human life. His house is a house of death. It is designed to destroy people spiritually, intellecturally, economically, socially and destroy their prospects for everlasting life. Its purpose is to give false hopes and dreams that lead to a deep dark pit.

He wants to convince people that they will not die but live on in some spirit realm, or he wants them to live in terror of death to the point they will murder their fellow under the false pretense that they are a threat when they are really not. Get them before they get you, this person or that group is the cause of your troubles destroy them (remember the jews? rich vs the poor war going on right now?) and you will have peace. LIes lies and more lies is all he gives. but he is a master at hiding his real intent.

Another tactic he uses quite well is the theory of evolution, when I listen to the scientists and read the books on it is sounds pretty convincing, but the reality is it is not as simple as they make it out to be, there are alot of steps required for an animal to change its spots, so to speak, a full blown change of the dna is required. This dna change is not under the control of the animal itself or even the situations the animal finds itself it is born with it and it cannot be changed and when it is changed by damage to it, it creates disease, death and a reduction in ability to survive. An animal must have it in the dna before it can adapt, it requires many many steps and changes of the dna programming for fins to turn to legs or feet to fins or scales to turn to feathers, it requires more than dropping thier eggs and leaving the young to fend for themselves and ‘evolving’ to the process of actually guarding the nest, checking and controling temp, instincts to know how and when to protect them, how to respond to the calls of their young, how to gain and keep a mate, all these have to be in the dna before hand. dna is hardware not software, it is unable, to add or substract programs. dna is so complicated and intrigut that scientists are still learning about it and have not been able to produce even a partial dna molecule from non living matter so I would hardly call it a product of accident.

I hope people will realize that evolution researchers have a foundation of assumptions before they even find evidence of something which falsifies their findings. for example thier foundation is life evolved over many millions of years, gradually changing an animal from one type to another in response to survival challenges, without devine direction, two, life came from non life as non living molecules combined and eventually became alive, and thus able to reproduce itself and change over time. Thirdly, that despite no evidence at all, (some of it even found to be fraud of what they claim they do have) humans evolved over millions of years from monkeys and apes.

now this one might be harder for people to believe, but another assumption is that life was a dog eat dog world in the past, survival of the fittest and constant battle to survive and that the planet was mostly icy, or more desert shaping the animals ‘evolutionary changes’, this could not be furthur from the truth.

Evolutionary teachings have contributed in no small measure to the strong dominating the weak, thus justifying oppressing and murdering and robbing their fellow man. Might makes right mentality. It has excused the wicked and their violence by simply stating survival of the fittest and strongest, and man is an animal and thus will ‘eat’ others to survive hence destroying morality or right and wrong. This looks like it has satans markings through and through. One would have to totally blind not to see it.

For those who are discouaged take heart Psalms 2, revelation 21:3-4, psalms 37, all speak of rightous ones inhabiting a peaceful and happy place where the wicked will not be, matt 5:5 happy are the meek (peaceable, teachable) they will inherit the earth. not inherit heaven but the earth. where man’s was put in the first place and where he was meant to live forever. Satans time of ruling will be stopped pretty soon all facets of the ‘sign’ are in evidence. matt 24, luke 13, 2 timothy 3:1-5, revelation 6, etc. what is this ‘sign” check out my next post it will be brief, to give overall view.

unfortnantly we cut our vacation short, I was just so bored, my hubby couldn’t get to any fishing spots, even the private piers were closed due to federal consessions, whatever that means,  we had no access to refuges, swimming holes, beach access was by some parking on side of road or private access which we had permission to use, we couldn’t do anything we had planned and on top of that my monthly decided to pay a visit, could’t of been a worst time for it. no hiking swimming or fishing or bird watching I was only able to get a few pictures, I spent most of the time sitting around the hotel room trying to figure out where to go and what to do. so we just left.

big bummer, frankly I don’t know what the people in governments’ problem is, they simply do not understand who really owns nature.  taxpayers paid for the access roads yet they forget it is not their money. but I guess that is the nature of power, you lose touch with reality and live in a world of delusions. I do have a few pictures to show.

might try to post to youtube.

northcarolinaouterbanksvacationbust 257white egrets using my long lens, just amazing I was like forever away barly could see these guys wiht the naked eye yet my lens caught this, amazing lens.

there is more but I am tired, suffering some heatlh issues today. so will deal with that. but enjoy, I have more pictures if you all want to see them.

 

paleo vs primal vs vegetarian diets

watched this video today, this guy presented a very logical arguement against high meat low carb diets some call paleo or primal, he was concise, used examples we could see for ourselves, showed the evidence as he had access too, and the manner he did it was very respectful.

I am inclined to think he is right, I did the atkins diets, low fat diets low carb diets (this one I did the most often, I mean it made sense at the time caloire in caloire out myth). he was showing how vegetarians diets do not make you weak, sick or unatheltic.  he reminded us to look at the results, examples and not the theory.

let’s say for the sake of discussion that we evolved from apes or monkeys. I don’t know about you but I don’t remember seeing documentaries showing these animals were big meat eaters. Have you? in fact the chimps only ate meat occassionally, including the baboons too, and apes eat only vegetation. And when some of these animals do eat them I don’t remember them worrying about any ethical treatment of their prey, in fact I seen many videos of them actually eating their prey alive. The screams of pain were heart wrenching for me to watch.

Anyway I thought  I would just throw that out.  As for eating meat raw as some try to do, this is totally disgusting.  Even God’s chosen people ate their food cooked, especially over an open pit.  Even jacob was cooking the meat in an open pot that esau sold is birthright for. So man has always cooked his food. There must be a reason that tradition started, I guess raw meat was just too bloody and aweful tasting to eat. Though once I read that they were so famished from hunger they were eating the quail raw without bleeding it first (and this incurred God’s anger, eating the blood not eating the meat)so maybe some did so when desperate for food.

While I cant go totally animal product free I have been keeping it down to around 10 or so percent of my total caloires and concentrating on plant foods. so far so good.  just a side note, a friend of mine did the atkins several years ago and lost like 45 pounds, I would say a year or so later he did from sudden cardiac arrest. He just sat down after being with friends for the day on his vacation, and he just died right there, no mess, no fuss, just gone with the snap of your fingers. Did the diet have anything to do with it? don’t know. you tell me. I haven’t a clue.
