Yeah, I think it was a sort of half-and-half before, but the common theme between both lifestyles is that you have to have a certain hardiness to live here, for long anyway. It's a harsh climate, and a relatively small population, so it's necessary to become, if you aren't already, resourceful and self-assured. The new style caters to the stereotype of young, rock-climbing, chronic cardio, childless, condo-dwelling couples (we have ONE very small set of condos in the...
I have only experienced socialising with male aspies, so if there's a difference due to sex, I'm not even able to comment. I do have lots of experience with three yr old children, though, so I thought I'd share what I saw and what I would conclude based on the video.   She seems like a bright, verbally confident, little girl. I can't tell where your eyes are, so I can only see the difference between when she's clearly looking away and when she's looking toward you,...
My seven month old has been saying words for many months, but in the last two weeks, her pronunciation has improved dramatically, so I've been finding it much easier to understand what she's saying, and being successful, she's been using a lot of two and three word phrases. She comforts herself by saying, "My baby, oh, my baby" (which is what I say to her when she needs comfort), and "mang" (mine) and "no" are regulars as well. She asks me to pick her up by saying, "Up,...
Pariah, I don't think I can more highly recommend that book. The other day, my partner was listing off all of his veiled excuses for why he doesn't start and complete anything toward his aspirations, and I could literally flip through and use lists in that book to repeat his words to him. It was shocking. It was surprising to my partner that all of the "reasons" he gave, that to him seemed valid, evaporated in the reality that they were things to overcome, not...
I have healed caries by eating a high animal fat diet of traditional foods. My enamel thinned after a few pgs, but it rebuilt during my fourth pg with lots of organic meat and loads of fat, gelatinous bone broth, fermented veggies and Concentrace. We were eating sprouted grain and whole-fat dairy then. I had absorption issues, too, but this still worked.   Dec. 1st 2010, my family quit all forms of grain (I ate about two servings/day max., previously, so not much to...
That's so exciting, Mum4vr!   There's a book called Fearless Creating by Eric Maisel that addresses, well everything about why we hold back and how to get started and accomplish our "thing." It's truly fabulous. That point of knowing what we've chosen, but feeling incapable, tired, unsure, etc..., he calls "weakened-mind anxiety." It really is that way for me, at least the way he describes it. I borrowed the book from the library, but once it's warranted, it will be...
  Thanks. :) I appreciate your considerate response. I am watching with interest, how unalienable rights are upheld/actualised in the myriad major changes that are happening in the U.S.   I'm not surprised that Canadians are less concerned with this than Americans, mostly because culturally, Americans know they have the right to overthrow any gov't they deem unfit, even if they wouldn't act on it. Just the knowledge of one's guaranteed freedom is very powerful, and the...
Actually, fear mongering would entail intentionally misleading in order to perpetrate an unreasonable fear. I gave a few real-life examples, all from cities larger than 300,000 people, not a diatribe about how afraid anyone is or ought to be. I am not afraid, and think fear is exactly the least helpful response, so I take issue with your accusation. If you do the research (anything you want to know is clearly expressed in our gov't literature, not on some hyped-up...
Well, of course to answer, I risk sticking my neck out, so I'll use very tame examples, and leave anyone who is interested to do the research to find out exactly what is actually going on.   A start is that Canadians have no unalienable rights. Not one. We have a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This is a non-precedent setting charter and can only be enforced through the courts. Every legislated so-called freedom, such as free speech, rests on the charter, and is...
I'd love to contract cooking!   My dp said we should open a paleo restaurant so there'd be somewhere in town to eat out, but then I reminded him that it would be us cooking, and instead of cooking just for us, we'd be cooking for everyone else, too. And we'd have purchased and indebted ourselves to a job- our job, but a job nonetheless. "Oh yeah," he said.
