  2. I have sleep apnea, but also extremely claustrophobic, so I can't wear a mask. Instead I elevate my head, and that works well. I'm not sure if it mentioned red light, but that is suppose to help us to sleep, avoiding the light from the phone, TV, pute, hours before bed time. I see it mentioned light, blue and is it white? That keeps our brains active. I have to keep reading, this is fascinating, have to share with a few patients who have issues. Amazing that we can not actually recover that lost sleep. I've read where cannabis can keep you from falling into REM sleep? I sleep so well unde

  4. This is a biographical, artistic telling of how the inspiration and beginning of cultural healing and life happened. This is written in a different perspective as Deborah died unexpectedly and it is simply easier for me to write in that manner as it does hurt but I desire to tell this. The following is authentic and true. The songs and videos have deep meaning and fit so well it is almost like it was designed for it. All respect to the artist as it is they that help add another layer that illustrates the emotion and feelings that is genuine for the illustration of how we were and I a

  5. How to preserve or super saturation of your FPJ, Lactic Acid and any Bacterial input. Needs: Jars with lids, like a mason Jar Wooden stick. Metal may interact poorly with the microbes. Brown Sugar or Jaggery, coconut sugar, cane sugar. Not Molasses as it has too much water content. Instructions: This can be used with LAB, FBJ or any bacteria based inoculant. Add sugar until it begins to settle on top of water Mix well Add more sugar until sugar is floating on top of water Mix well

  9. Don't laugh but when I was younger if I had problems sleeping I would try the old idea of counting sheep jumping over a fence . This was not very effective as it kept my brain far too active , thinking what the sheep might look like , the type of fence and how high it was . I did find that simply counting my out breaths was far better . The counting helps stop the stressful thoughts of the day from creeping back and I had no distracting picture in my brain . This allowed me too drift off to sleep a lot easier and quicker . Don't concentrate that much on keepin track of the score , it's just th

  10. I have been trying to concentrate on nose breathing while sleeping at night . I normally start sleeping in the recovery position but usually one nostril blocks this way , so I find it better to start by lying on my back first . It's easier to nose breath this way as both nostrils stay clear then . After a minute or two when my breathing settles I then turn over onto my side as my nose breathing is much slower and relaxed by then . I haven't needed to use the micropore tape as I just use the suction grip of my tounge on the roof of my mouth to hold my mouth closed . I place my tounge in positi

I celebrate Deborah and while I miss her she lives on in that celebration and within my heart and in my soul. We are still, as always one. Deb's loving husband, Jon

  19. I have enough wood for 5 boxes and three lids so I can leave two and when I come back a week later I can exchange for another two ( cycle ) the extra box I shall experiment with ( holes etc ) i got 3 lids too , two for the coming home boxes to protect the contents and the spare I shall put on my experimental box , to see if I get a good collection with a wooden lid instead of paper towel If it works with a wooden lid that means no anti animal cage would be required and it would make them more rain proof ( easier to set up on site )

  20. Nails or screws are fine. I like screws for better stability over time. The boxes get bumped and moved and with cheap nails can become flimsy but this is not an issue if box is not in danger of falling apart, I speak more out of caution than practical issue that I have seen. Remember to leave a bit of a gap on the bottom as to help facilitate easier microbe movement to the rice food source but they can travel through the wood no problem anyways. I speak on that due to Chris Trumps advice. I have no gaps in the ones I had and worked as it should! Making the box is a neat t

  21. Just got my cedar in the post for my boxes , the wood smells lovely lol ? going to use metal nails or screws to assemble them I think ? Or should I use wooden dowels and some wood glue ? Im thinking screws will grip better and help keep the box from warping / twisting over time and if I need to fix the boxes for any reason , the screws will allow for easy dismantle i shall see what the finest thin one inch screws the shop sells and if there is nothing suitable I shall use fine gripper type nails ( like normal nails only ribbed for extra wood pleas

  23. the added sugar stops the process and stabilizes it. That is a great question and I cannot find a definitive answer and I have no experience with that as I kept in refrigerator. I suggest using the same dilution rates. I will try to find a more experienced answer. I believe it will be the same as in nothing can I find mention other than to stabilize it but nothing if a change in dilution rates. Use on something stinky and if not effective make more concentrated until effective and then use those dilution rates.

  24. If I have 1 kg of lab serum and I add 1 kg of brown sugar , then I have 2kg of brown sugar lab serum mix , so my volume is now greater but the lab concentration stays the same ?

  25. The ratio is the same for use regardless if adding sugar or not. It does not affect volume but by adding in the brown sugar you stabilize it. Refrigerating does the same but you dont need to put in more sugar if kept in fridge. I always kept mine in the fridge but I do not believe the extra sugar is an issue as it is a balance but I am not speaking on experience with that one. Keep it coming, your questions are spot on!

  26. The ratios for using lab are the same weither it has been mixed with brown sugar or kept pure in the fridge does adding brown sugar double my volume in lab while also keeping it at the same concentration ? also if I mix it with brown sugar and then use it as a spray will the surface be all sticky ,and attract insects and dirt etc or does the lab make the brown sugar mix non sticky ? is there a time or situation when the brown sugar mix is more effective than the pure ? ( I am thinking the brown sugar lab mix for the garden and the fridged lab for the home ) ? sorry for

  27. no on freezing but if you keep in refrigerator it will last about 6 months to a year. You can add sugar and keep it stable at room temperature. Add equal amounts of brown sugar and mix. (remember no metal stir or containers as it reacts badly.)

  28. Yes I am all pleased with myself : ) The first job for the LAB is my outside food bin , I might as well throw them in at the deep end lol a great test haha I am not going to do anything with the curds this time , due to the small amount but I shall make a bigger batch of LAB next time , then I shall definatly be making some cheese from the curds : )

  29. This made my day! I will soon be making some lab myself. Just got done working out which biochar design I will use and a few other odds and ends and i will start making inputs. Thank you for documenting your lab journey! I am sure it will lead to other great things. Now go out and see what all lab can do. After diluting for use, spray any where stinky. I love it for about anywhere and on anything and in growing when mixed with other inputs it becomes part of something greater! Any plans for the curds? A bit of a smile. The Muppets - The

Hi , we have a winner : ) the 1/10 jar on the right looks perfect , the other on the left is still very milky looking ( 2/3 jar ) the 2/3 jar that is milky still smells slightly sweet , but the perfect looking 1/10 jar on the right now smells fishy but not as strong as when it smelt sour tho The yellow liquid in the middle is what we are after , very cool indeed : ) The milk used for this was regular semi skimmed supermarket bought milk Here is a pic of the curds on the top : ) So so between the swe

  34. So an update for today : ) A light sediment has formed at the bottom of the jars but it still looks like milk , although it looks like they are about to change Yesterday when I took the paper lids off the jars , I was hit with a slap in the face sour smell , really strong from the 1/10 jar and the 2/3 jar had a stronger sweet smell too . So if your sense of smell isn't that great just pop the paper lids off to smell each day ( be carefull your nose doesn't touch the rim of the jar , who knows what crazyness is on there ? ) Also it was hard to pour all of the 1/10 jar of anocu

So it has been 5 days since I made the rice wash and put it into two separate clean jam jars : ) One jar was filled up to the 2/3 mark with rice wash , the other jar was just filled up to the 1/10 ish mark and both were given paper towel lids with elastic bands The jars were placed in a dark cupboard in a bedroom and checked daily for smell ( nose over paper towel ) , room temp is 22 max day temp and 17 nite temp At day 3 a light brown sediment formed at the bottom of the jars with a white gloop sitting on top of the sediment , then the rice wash ( no film on top of rice was

  36. Very Nice write up. I have been mixing good soil for about 20 years and love the medium. As growing is my hobby i spent the last few years expermenting with coco and just recently went to rockwool. I am sure i will return to mixing good (warm) soil as the plants love it. Thanks for a great write up.
