no sushi, expensive gas


theres no sushi or raw oysters for me
i only eat raw vegetables or raw fruit

my wife she loves sushi and raw oysters
think she eats it just to make me sick
wont kiss her after she eats that stuff
unless she brushes her teeth and waits
24 hours

now after reading this news report
i know that i wont ever eat either one

here in the austin area a family wanted sushi
so they went to the grocery store and
bought some raw salmon to use in their sushi

as they were eating this sushi they noticed
small worms wiggling between their teeth
and on their tongues
i almost threw up reading about it

there were 23 people who ate the stuff
many of them got sick also

the salmon can also carry parasites and worms
who can only be killed by cooking it or freezing it
then you can eat the salmon with its dead worms

sure hope my wife she reads this blog today

here at the country n i have one acre that surrounds my house
that i keep mowed
when its dry like this i only have to mow it twice a year
once after all the wildflowers have bloomed and all
gone to seed
sometimes i mow in the late fall if we have had a lot of rain
didnt have to do that last year

so my riding lawnmower sits for months without being used

here is a tip from a gardening magazine newsletter i get each week
if you use use regular gas it has ethanol in it which will attract water over
time and you will get moisture in your tank
when it gets in the carburetor and fuel line it will overtime clog it up
you can prevent this by using the most expensive gas
the premium super unleaded gas which has no ethanol

so thats whats wrong with my lawnmower and weed eater and chainsaw

  1. On all my small engines I use a fuel stabilizer named Sta-Bil. It cleans and lubricates the fuel system and keeps your gas from forming varnish in the fuel system. If you don't want to spend a few cents on that, install a valve in the fuel line and turn off the gas flow when done. Let the engine run until it runs out of gas and this will give the same protection to the fuel system but the gas will not stay fresh in the tank.

    1. thanks
      i bought some today and will use it along with the premium gas
      afraid i may have alredy varnished my carburetor

  2. Silly!
    If you eat raw fish from the Piggly Wiggly, well, "here's your sign."
    Raw fish must be FRESH FRESH FRESH!
    You should never eat raw fish that is not sushi grade, or you yourself just pulled from the sea .
    The lesson here is that you need to know your food sources.
    Animal. Mineral. Vegetable.
    Billions of Japanese sushi eaters can't be wrong.

    1. hopefully those of you who do eat sushi will do what tammy says and what mary below says to get good sushi
      sorry i want my meat cooked and crispy around the edges

  3. I agree with Tammy. You should not go to the supermarket and buy fish and use it for sushi or sashimi.
    Ideally, if you must eat sushi, you should only get it from the hands of a sushi chef who trained in Japan, where they learn techniques to inspect the fish carefully for signs of parasites.
    I love oysters on the half shell. Unfortunately, there is no way for me to judge in advance whether they are good or not. Once, in Corpus, I started to eat one and came up with a mouthful of petroleum tar. (The tradition in Texas and Louisiana is, if one of the oysters tastes bad, there is no charge for the plate of oysters it arrived with. That hardly made me feel better as I tried to get the tar off my tongue.)

    1. thanks for the comment
      hopefully those who eat sushi will follow your advise

  4. You tell em Tammy! Don't let my pa influence us sushi/sashimi lovers!!
