Better Technology Equals Better Beer!

The four most produced grains around the world are in order corn, rice, wheat, and barley. Barley is the essential ingredient of two of the best drinks know to men: Beer and Whiskey! In 2014, we produced 144 million tons of barley.

In 2012, the grain’s genome was mapped for the first time by the International Barley Genome Sequencing Consortium! See it here. This discovery leads researchers to believe that we could grow a much better-engineered barley grain.

Why do you want better barley?

Adam Rogers  one of Wired‘s articles editor said: “But barley has a quality other grains don’t. It’s possible to induce it to make an enzyme, alpha-amylase, that breaks starch into ready-to-use sugar. The process of coaxing that enzyme out is called malting, and malted barley is what you use to make beer—even if you’re adding in other grains like corn or rice, as major American brewers do. The enzyme in the malt turns those grains’ starches into sugar, too, and that’s what yeast converts to alcohol.”

Better barley equals better beer, and probably even more beer!

What To Eat To Have A Great Erections!

“Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es.” Know in English as “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are.”

The foods we eat impact our general health. For men, an unhealthy diet can even cause him erectile dysfunctions. Your penis is filled with minuscule blood vessels and nerves. When you eat too much junk food, it can lead to the building up of fat and cholesterol in those vessels, clogging them. This will prevent you from getting hard, but that’s not the worst of it. It can cause more severe heart problems.

A healthy diet and exercise can keep you and your precious family jewel in shape for years to come! Eat some good foods that not only provide you with vitamins but will boost your testosterone and make your morning woods feel like wood.

Coffee

Start your day with a fresh cup of Joe! Caffeine boosts your metabolism by getting your blood pumping. It’s also great when you are a bit tired, and you want to spend a wild night with your date.

You know that hot feeling you get when you eat spicy food? Well, that’s a good thing! Hotness expands your blood vessels letting more blood enter the tissues of your cock.

Oatmeal And Bananas

Bananas are not only delicious, they contain loads of potassium. This element keeps your sodium levels at the right place which his good for your heart. Mixe that sweet banana with a hot bowl of porridge. Oatmeal contains fibers that clean all the cholesterol from your blood vessel, leaving them brand new!

Salmon and Wine

Treat yourself to a nice glass of red wine or two for dinner but not much more. It’s an excellent source of antioxidant, more specifically, phytochemical resveratrol. This boosts the production of nitric oxide which then makes your blood vessels expand the same way Viagra does! To help the flow down there join a beautiful piece of salmon to your glass of Cabernet. The omega-3 will make your blood thinner so it can go further down 😉

The omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish make the blood less sticky, enhancing blood flow to the parts that matter. Eat fish like salmon, mackerel, trout and fresh tuna twice a week to keep your arteries well-oiled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Post-Thanksgiving Updates

Heads cropped to protect the innocent.

Heads cropped to protect the innocent.

Hi again. Yep… Still Sophie. Yesterday was Canadian Thanksgiving, which I guess is like American Thanksgiving only there are an equal number of awkward sorries to go along with all the thanks. Badum-tschhh. But seriously, folks… It’s more or less the same. I made the interesting choice to host TWO Thanksgiving dinners this year because I always am looking for a way to justify the fact that I purchased a 12-seat dining room table. The first was for my incredibly large choir. There were over 40 of us and, although it was potluck-ish, my roommate and I still managed to make something like 10+ dishes because we are addicted to being good hosts. Yesterday was a more intimate dinner with just 15 close friends. My darling sister and I are Thanksgiving orphans this year because our folks are off in Ireland, so she came over to help poor (recovering) vegetarian me roast two rather sizeable chickens. We also managed to also crank out veg/non-veg stuffing, veg/non-veg gravy, some amazing cream cheese mashed potatoes, roasted parsnips, turnips and onions, mashed acorn and butternut squash, maple-glazed carrots, creamed corn, kernel corn, rolls, cranberry sauce, mulled cider and two pumpkin pies with whipped cream because sometimes you just have to do it up, right? Both dinners went off without a hitch and the clean-up was surprisingly painless. Thanks to host gifts, we now have enough wine to last us until kingdom come. Who wants leftovers?

Camille’s Thanksgiving was decidedly a little less involved (though I would have shipped her some paleo/primal options if I could) as she actually ended up staying in the original hospital a little longer. She’ll be transferred soon, hopefully get her surgery and be out not soon later, so it seems like we’re still working with roughly the same timeframe. She’s poked in briefly on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to say a little hello, including the charming selfies I’ve included here. As you can see, she’s smiling and well enough to write in reasonable bursts, so she’s certainly on the mend. Mike and I had a good talk today and he seems as optimistic as she is, so it’s all good. He was also working out some compilation videos so he can spend the rest of the week just focused on her various transfers and adjustments.

Only this woman could look like a classic beauty in a hospital bed.

Another week with more to overcome, but she can and will do it. And just think how excited she’ll be to see all of you and your messages here when she comes back. Thanks for your continued patience and sustained support. This year, I was thankful that Camille’s accident wasn’t any worse than it was. I imagine we’re all quite thankful of that, regardless of whether or not you celebrated this fact with pie.

What’s Poppin’?

Delicious spicy treat for redhead Camille Crimson

Sometimes Mike and I like to have fun with the narrative of a video.  A lot of our videos are just a simple, straight-forward look at things, but once in a while we like to spice things up…  Literally.  One of the treats that Mike makes for me that I really love are his jalapeño poppers.  They’re delicious and they involve bacon…  Plus, they were the inspiration for this cute update on the new site!  What’s not to like?

Well, so, there is one thing not to like…  They’re so spicy that they literally make me cry.  My eyes water from the sheer heat, but I enjoy them anyways.  Sometimes it’s worth it, especially when he makes them for me!  I just can’t resist, kind of like this weird otter and his watermelon:

And that’s the first and last time I’ll compare myself to an otter who enjoys (or does not enjoy) fruit.  Probably.  Hopefully you’ll enjoy this video, which is a little slice of life from our home…  He only wanted to make me happy, but we wound up with tears!  Do any of you have this reaction to spicy things?  I guess it could be worse!  😛
