    Bronze, you have become a real mixing wizard. I think you've come up with more original stuff than I have.

    I like the FLV Cream a lot too. I am experimenting with the Creamy Butter Mint recipe by subbing out the heavy cream with a different heavy cream. Today I mixed it with FA Whipped Cream at 2% and with CCW Devon Cream at 2%. Both of those need a few days to steep and I will report the results. The FLV Cream might well end up being the best of the bunch but it is nice to be able to offer subs so that people can use what they have on hand.

    @Bronze is a quick study. He's both annoying and useful in that way. As I have mentioned before, he reminds me of my brother in that aspect.

    I mean, not in general. Just that. Like being Bobby Fisher Jr at chess (he was 3 years older) and like, my mom would make me play him and yes, I learned some things along the way (like, mostly how to lose gracefully, EVEN when your opponent like, says, witheringly "You are so stupid, Anna.")

    I'm not saying like, Bronze would ever do THAT but not unlike my mother and certain siblings, like, there is a competence level that becomes a bit scary and you gotta start looking for the fatal flaw to even be able to look in the mirror.

    Someday.... I will find it. I will not share it, because my fatal flaw is my kindness. Mainly because THE DOCTOR who said he was all FINE with like, prescribing my natural thyroid (at two visits) like, decided I could JUST take Synthroid when I TOLD him at my first visit, he PROMISED not to do that and this is why I stayed. It was all like "No thyroid for you!" and I was like ffffffffffffffffff:censored: motherffffffffffff:censored:er, I am going to have to go to MEXICO tomorrow because I am out.

    Mexican medicines are like terrifying if you research them, they are SO WACK. I mean, my usual dose of thyroid contains 18 mcg of T3. They don't make natural thyroid there or whatever, nor do they make combinations, as far as I could tell. They make some WACK ... stuff that has 75 mcg of T3 ALONE in in and that seems a terrifying (to me) amount. I think it's for extreme dieters and bodybuilders who don't care if they have palpitations. Also, it's a CAPSULE like item and well, I'm sorry, you can't split a capsule (may or may not be time released) so I was trying to find me T3/T4 medications and no pharmacy wants to say over the phone, "Why YES, we DO carry the death T3 PILL, my fine friendly DEA agent."

    So, I was planning to go to the pharmacies that hung up on me, but I was NOT happy about it.

    Then, in an abrupt reversal of fortune, the doc called me in a 1 month supply and is sending me to an endocrinologist,

    My thoughts are F:censored:K ALL Y'ALL I now have PLENTY of time to order like a lifetimes supply of natural thyroid, (well I can't it has a shelf life) but ENOUGH to delay this whole issue for another year at least.

    THE only times I feel terrible are like today, where, as I had ran out of my thyroid meds I was like "Well, I guess I better take my last crazy thyroid lady Synthroid pill. Then I felt crappy in a different way."

    I DON'T GET IT. There is not all this new, sudden information about like how natural thyroid is killing people. In fact, I should probably TAKE more T3 because like lithium does such odd stuff with it (only not Mexican dieter 75 mcg that seems like a fatally TERRIBLE amount.) I know how to deal with capsules (dilutions are easiest) BUT OY.

    I'm going to my psychiatrist's endocrinologist. But if he does not make me feel BETTER than my current dose, well, I'm just going to keep taking it. If he can do better, YAY. If not, too bad.

    Doctors do not pay attention enough to how you feel (physically) IMHO. It's all evidence based this and opiate that.

    I get the opiate crisis and all but like people have been in drug crises since the dawn of TIME. How about some uh, non black and white thinking you know, sane and rational.

    I would rather die sooner than feel how I did on Synthroid, man,. AND my numbers sucked harder.

    Self sufficiency shall be my goal and it's not like I have ANY risk factors for thyroid Sudden Death. If anything I am fatter. Sheesh.

    Sorry for the rant (mom) LOL.

    I dealt with the insane doc today the total nutwack one, she was driving me nuts I came home and received the fatal email. I called back and was all like "Cool woohoo I was all about to go to Mexico to buy "drugs you may have saved me from CERTAIN death."

    I can't even.... I say that to docs sometimes so they know what they are dealing with. Stubborn. Etc.

    Hello my fellow mixers!

    I think..... I might have finally got everything put away. Still haven't even looked at my flavors since packing. I will need to sort through most of them to get them back in their categories. They were the last thing packed and I hurriedly threw everything in a case.

    One of my terrapins started acting funny. I was worried she came down with a respiratory infection because she was swimming strange and seemed to be breathing heavy. I took her into the vet for x-rays to see if it was infection in her lungs. Instead of infection the x-rays showed 12 eggs already! It's very early in the season for her to be gravid.

    I brought her back home and put her in one of my warmer tanks and moved the nesting box over for when she starts laying. It looks like it's going to be a great year.

    Her is a pic of Big Mama:

    Man. CVS did not have my prescription. I have no clue how I'm gonna make it through work tomorrow. Long underwear and extremely slow moving, probably.

    I really have no idea what I will do when my pdoc like, retires. Oh well, no going to think about that now, too many problems, bad. I will just have to grit my teeth and POWER up.

    I guess I could try replacing all my diet pepsi with um, they make Starbucks TRIPLE shot energy drinks now. They DO. I have been fearful to buy one, it's probably still a bad plan. OMG. yeah, not going to do that one either,

    I remember getting a juice from Indigo with banana, tobacco, maybe something else. I think it was Oorah. It really was delicious. But I couldn't hit it more than half a tank, and had to stop. I tried a number of sweet, flavored tobacco juices in those days, but regrettably, none came close to adv for me.

    Back then, I really only had one main setup and a backup though. Maybe I ought to mix a tank just for desserts and a change of pace.

    I find these variations as one tank flavors. Vape a tank, enjoy the hell out of it, put it up for a week. Repeat. Get enough of them and it turns into a real rotation. And with the fruits you don’t have to clean or rewick between tanks. Just vape one down and fill with the next fruit in the rotation.

    Add another one to Z’s blog.
    I don’t think I got Huckleberry Finn yet. Think it’s on my wish list.

    So how is the apricot and berry mingling?

    I think the slight mustyness ? Of the Huckleberry is perfect with the Dark Fire and the apricot goes well.

    Yeah. Darker fruits would do well with Dark Fire. Something like raisin or fig would do the trick too for those who like those fruits.

    Indexing the older ones is still on hold, but I've been keeping up with the new ones so the thread doesn't get away from me.
