OMG….

Only 24 hours left on my face book ban…… apparently my inflammatory posting triggers the weak….. awwwwww

And the wheels go round an round

I just made a go fund me page…. its about saving bees, its a thing… cause they pollinate our food crops and  neonicotinoids are killing them.. along with the panic over Africanized bees…..the panic is unwarrented… most arent Africanized some are just grumpy as….but people go crazy trying to kill them

I also collect wild swarms and feral colonies which have made a home in someones wall, attic or garage…. which kinda is a pain, but the alternative is an exterminator gets called…

I get them out alive…

Even the exterminator doesn’t want to kill bees..he’d rather call me so I can suffer.. my worst job I got about 50 stings and was half eaten by fire ants… my tongue went numb and I was an hour from a hospital which had me worried……but I got the bees, and about 100 lbs of honey… which I kept for me, because they fought me for it… and I nearly died….

Now its destined to be mead… 🙂

Meet the infamous durian

They have a reputation which I don’t think is deserved at all… they were good and had no horrific reek….

I suspect its just bad press to keep them from being eaten by touristas and dilettantes from food network, who have ruined countless food cultures….

Seriously.. when a food is affordable for anyone…some clown with a cable show “discovers” it and the price shoots through the roof till the people it came from cant afford it….

Case in point..hog jowls are more expensive than bacon, for exactly that reason… they became fashionable and popular.. same with chicken wings and a host of poor folk foods… $4 per pound for wings (former cat food)….under a buck per pound for a bag of hind quarters..

And being cheap..I’m always looking for the next affordable food frontier….beef tounge got discovered by the teeming masses.. so thats no longer a fiscally viable protein…but pig tongue is still unexplored territory and just as good…

Intermission is over…..

What can I say, life intrudes on whatever it is I do here….

For instance a trip to New Zealand replete with durian and sundry adventures… mostly round about’s and having to be escorted across streets because I habitually look the wrong way….

Swimming with jellyfish and the gf in the Tasman sea….. my usual 2:00 AM wanderings…which in this case had to do with the southern cross and the unease of the stars being “different”…

I’m a desert dweller so all the green was a shock to the senses…

The markets were Asian, which was different (to me), so I ate my way through them, because anything on a stick works for me..

There were some minor horse head adventures…and lighthouse exploring..

There was the sensation of something being off in the town square….. I was surrounded by white people and not a Mexican in sight, it kinda freaked me out….. then I got homesickish.. for corn tortillas and jalapeno’s….

So we got chilis and a pigs head and did first aid on my psyche….

The mighty GF went from chef to baker and is now working on beekeeping and has her own hives….which she keeps after when shes not doing pastry…or working at her bee job for a commercial out fit…

My world is the same….I/E food obsession driven, odd studies and plotting…100_9335

The Daily

I has a smoked fish…because my snack foods are eclectic…and I’m sort of like a giant omnivorous hamster..

The fish in question is a Trevally….and pronounced more like turkey than anything else.. which is prolly what I wanna hear…

That aside..I dunno, it’s kinda got a texture like cold ham fat…. cept it’s a fish… not that I object ham fat and it’s goin in the miso… so thats that..

It seems my weight being 220 is cause for concern….and I need to gain 20 or 30 pounds… lest my manly beauty fade..

I’m actually sleeping now…. which hasn’t been the norm for a few years… the not eating thing is still a problem “kinda”…. but whatever…. adjusting intake is automatic..

The new camera is getting a work out and I poke at the I phone like a chimp getting termites with a stick…

The cat stalks me, but now shes in season and stalks everything… including the furniture..

We went by the track on the way to the market and are going to the races at some point.. it’s all bikes and big blocks.. so lets see how its done here..

And.. we’re headed to a night market at some point cause we just are..and it’s supposed to be quite the event…

I’m still not allowed to cross the street alone (for good reason) but it is what it is.. I am starting to look the right direction about %20 of the time so it’s improving and I may not die as quickly….

But rescuing me from becoming road kill seems to be Ok with everyone… so whatever….

I met a fake American at the market..

Not once but twice…he was selling crystals, but for some reason couldn’t name any shows or even identify his merchandise, which was d grade at best…

Not that I care, good luck to ya pal… but you’re not an American. and it wasn’t just his timid bearing and pasty softness.. even the accent was off… That boy has never seen the light of day in the US much less Arizona sun…

He just kept digging a hole that even his girl style cowboy hat couldn’t cover.. but when you’re a Canadian it’s best to pretend to be an American and have a personality……. lest one get beat up by an Asian woman in the food court for stealing exotic mayonnaise and bringing a big mac to her stall..

I avoided him second go round….. I felt the Chi being sucked out of my body..

But whatever.. they have American hot dogs at the market, apparently saying anything is American is a popular selling point.. Like we don’t get most of our stuff from China…

I just keep going till I can’t read the signs anymore and eat whatever their selling… unless it has wheels or a sweat band…

Today aside from fish and chips… pronounced fush n chups… I got into some home-style peppers sauces..hahahhahaha

it’s so cute they think they can make hot sauces……

Anything works

curry street food

I really like make do food tents, wagons, trucks and trailers.. it feels like home before everyone got all tense and stupid because of marketing by factory fast “food” and supposed safety issues..More people get sick at a chain than a food wagon hands down..including Mexico
