After all those years, nay decades, of chasing money a garden with all the little bugs that call it home helps me to remember the important things in life. But this kind of thinking makes me tired. Time for another nap. ha ha ..... Thanks for the nice thought Gemma.

17 June 1942. I had my first "spiritual" experience two weeks before I was born. I remember being with my parents. I remember our house and a car that they had borrowed because they knew my mother's time was near. I was always with them. I was just above them and watched. I was interested in them, curious. They were younger than I ever remembered later. It was quiet. No noise. No sounds. My awareness was that of an adult, not a child and certainly not that of a baby. Then the next thing I knew I was a baby. That's how it started this time around. So I had built in knowledge, affirmation, of the reality the surety of the spiritual worlds. Pretty soon I'll be going back and another lifetime finished with. I intend to have a few adventures before coming back again.

Thanks for the greetings Sister.

I do a lot of canning James making use an electric canner. That way I don't have to sit in front of a stovetop canner so the pressure doesn't go to low or to high. Instapot is one as Gemma mentioned, I went for an off-brand one because it was cheaper. I really love my electric canner and use it all the time.

I do pickle and I also ferment foods. Good for the gut.

I do hope your retirement is everything you hoped for. Yes, it will be time to finish with this life soon, but in the meantime your greenhouse calls with naps when you want them.

When I was a boy I learned to can using a pressure cooker. Once we were given a tuna that was so big it took two men to lift it. We canned it using oil. I think there must have been one hundred or more jars of tuna in our pantry and the neighbor had an equal amount. I enjoy all methods of preserving foods including the use of salt for meats. It's interesting to note that in Ukraine butcher shops one can buy freshly made salted pork. You can also buy a whole pig's head and many who like to make their own sausages at home do exactly that. Here in the US we differ greatly from the rest of the world in many (culinary) ways. I have found the making of marinades to be a quick and easy way to pickle just about anything. Handy when no electricity is available.

It would be interesting to channel an alien in order to find out about their methods of preparing foods on their home worlds. Maybe I'll ask Bartholomew for some help in this area.

Ohoho, I agree. I get really weak after major sessions of channeling, and I need to rest. I have the feeling the more powerful the being channeled, the more intense it is as cardio exercise. Haha, looks like I donít need to go the gym for cardio.

Interesting. Iím a little too tired to just ask an alien to channel myself right now about that but Iím kind of worried that we wonít have the same resources to prepare food in similar ways here.

Itís worth trying though. Most of the channeling Iíve seen are for life wisdom purposes ó big picture perspectives ó rather than for everyday practical purposes.

Itís a rather original idea to me really. People seem to forget the type of range of purposes channeling can be used for.

I agree and not all channeling is high spiritual sources either. I have listened to some who channeled their own souls giving us stories from their own past lives. Indeed my early channeling was usually familiar historical figures some of whom imparted quite mundane aspects of life in ages past. For instance as a surprise the soul of Pythagoras showed up once for a few minutes. This was because, I found out later, someone in the audience had an affinity for him and had channeled him herself. I didn't know this before hand. I felt his mood and realized that the man, in addition to other things that we know from reading history, was a practical joker. He loved laughing and liked to play. He loved life.... and still does. In recent years I only channel my friend Bartholomew. I know him quite well and when we engage it's for specific purpose like the soul readings for others. If I have the idea at the right time I may ask him about more adventurous things. Who knows we may do an internet show called "The Alien Chef". ha ha....
