The time has arrived. I have finally acquired the last needed component to finish my "Dream Machine." Just like Paul, I have gone off the deep end and purchased a 17" LCD monitor... I'll tell ya'... Looks a treat! (Ain't it funny how we all strive to be more like Paul...?)

This thing has got 8 USB ports, 2 IEEE 1394 (fire wire) ports, built in gigabit ethernet (1000MB per second!?!) Built in super 802.ll g wireless LAN, I could go on and on... I'm throwing Windows XP Pro edition for an operating system... I've got a bunch of other software lined up as well, even a few games... I'll quit boring you with the specs though...
Throwing a couple of extra thermally controlled fans in to keep this behemoth cool. Hope it's not too noisy...
So... Guess what... I juiced this morning! Lots of stuff too... Carrots, celery, broccoli, ginger, garlic, green onion, mustard greens, parsley, and cilantro. Green and spicy... Wow...
Breakfast was a couple of cod loins. I covered them in olive oil, then a sort of "breading" I whipped up using: Amaranth flour, dill, Herbamare, turmeric, oregano, sage, dill, nutritional yeast, buffered vitamin C powder, chives, and a bit of cumin. Once they were coated, I sprayed them down with Bragg's liquid Aminos. Baked them at 450 for 18 minutes... Fantastic. Although... I'd have preferred them raw... I do love the sushi. Ate these with some juicer pulp, and a couple of slices of "Health Seed" bread. Good stuff... Still not sure if it is moldy, or just has a sour dough taste to it... Oh well... I eat enough garlic to kill the fungus anyway.
Same thing for lunch. I made a bunch of the cod at once. I'm trying to run out of food before I start the Master Cleanse. Getting excited/anxious/nervous. Expect full reports and updates nearly everyday. Should be interesting. Hopefully healing and purifying.
Dinner was 2/3 block of Tempeh w/ sea vegetables. Another slice of that bread, and a bag of frozen broccoli, seasoned similar to the cod. I watched an old movie called, "The Last Unicorn", while eating... Made in 1982. A year after I was born. I saw it a couple of times when I was VERY little. Ahhh nostalgia... Perhaps some of you remember it? An animated film featuring the voice talents of Angela Lansbury and Christopher Lee, to name a few. America did all the songs too. Cartoons... I'm a fan...
Enjoying a bottle of Rabbit Ridge Reserve Sangiovese. A delicious 98'. Kind of spendy to just bust out and enjoy for no reason in particular... Or... Is it? Buy a bottle of this if you ever lay eyes on it. It's delicious. You'll know it's the reserve by the gold foil around the cork. Aged in french oak and American oak barrels for 8 months. Probably not new ones though... Oh well... Not like it cost a hundred or anything...
