A Paleo Lemonade

In an attempt to find a good "relaxing drink" to have other than water, I decided to make a lemonade sweetened with raw, local honey. It turned out quite well, so I thought I would share the recipe I used, as well as the adjustments I plan on making in the future.

Sharing Your Path

Each of us follows a path, several paths, really. We all follow our own path when it comes to our beliefs: spiritual, moral, economical, kink, what products we buy – every aspect of our life. Typically, we wish to share our path with others, some religious communities require it. There are several ways you can share your path/beliefs/brand-loyalty/way-of-doing-things, in this post I will share with you how I choose to share. You don't have to follow it, but I hope you'll at least listen to my methods, and hopefully see some wisdom in them.

People Like Me.

I prefer to spend my time with people like me. The more like me a person is, the more I like to spend with him, or her. I like to spend time with people who think like I do, who have similar goals, and see the world in similar ways. With Luck I found someone very similar to and she agreed to spend the rest of her life with me. There are still differences, but they are differences we live with.

A New Pledge

Something I came up with this morning:
I pledge allegiance to the Constitution
Of these united States of America,
And to the republic, which it defines
For the several States, joined in union,
To protect Liberty and Justice for all.

Feel free to share, as long as my name (J. Kenzal Hunter, Sr.) and/or a link to this page is provided.

Frugal Living 1: Personal Hygiene

This begins the first in a Frugal Living series I would like to do. Very little in this series will be things I am not doing myself, with occasional comments about things I plan to do, but am unable to at the moment for some reason.

I would like to make a small clarification before I begin. I note a difference between cheap, inexpensive and frugal.

  • Cheap items are something of shoddy craftsmanship (ofttimes manufactured) that are often inexpensive.
  • Inexpensive items are ones that do not much money to purchase. However, a number of cheap inexpensive items need to be replaced, some, such as disposable razors, or razor cartridges, are designed for limited use and need to be replaced quite often and the small expense adds up over time.
  • Frugal items may or may not be inexpensive and are rarely cheap. Some can have a hefty up-front cost, but due to better design and craftsmanship, these items (even the manufactured ones) are made to last, and can often be purchased second hand, mitigating a bit of that initial cost.

So Much and So Little

It has been a while since my last post, almost five years. In that time so much and so little has happened. So I'll hit the highlights. I would also like to apologise that this will not be as lengthy a post as I would like, as I must go to work soon, where blogging sites are blocked by the company firewall. I'm going to be arriving later than I would like, but with my flexible schedule, this is not a problem.
