Deep Thoughts™

If I should be killed, I want you to bury me on one of the hills east of the place where my grandparents and brothers and sisters and other relatives are buried.

If you have a memorial service, I want the soldiers to go ahead with the American Flag. I want cowboys to follow, all on horseback. I want one of the cowboys to lead one of the wildest of the T over X horses with saddle and bridle on.

I will be riding that horse.

Private Clarence Spotted Wolf, US Army, 1914-1944

Ordered palm kernel oil from UK on Sep25. It’s here in Vancouver Sep29! 100% unrefined, cold pressed, organic, food grade. I had to order from a cosmetics supplier, Akoma. Great service!

Made an excursion to TnT Super at Park Royal in West Vancouver this afternoon. Actually, they’ve rebranded this particular store as ‘Osaka’. I guess more Japanese than Chinese live in West Vancouver. Maybe the whole North Shore.

This offering intriques me and I look forward to trying it. Even comes with a one-cup brewer which I’ll give to my wife for whatever. I hope there’s enough coffee in this package to cold brew an entire 4-liter batch, but if not, I’ll do what I can. TnT (Osaka) sells the coffee separately in 250 gram bags. So if I like it, I can get it in quantity. This will be my first experience with robusta coffee beans.


This is a Japanese offering:

And this. I have to go for it and try it!


Wth are net impact carbs? Have I bought the wrong thing?

Which is a bit weird - we don’t produce palm kernel oil in this country even though there are a few palm trees in Torquay and on the West coast of Scotland.

It’s apparently sourced from Ghana, West Africa. Akoma claims to be associated with a ‘fair trade’ assoc in Ghana. Any how…

I added 2.5 grams to my keto mix this morning. Remember, this is a LITER of coffee! The palm kernel oil has such a strong and characteristic flavour that I can taste it quite distinctly in the coffee. I’m unsure yet whether or not l like the flavour. Although I just purchased 4 liters of it so I’d better learn to like it. Today’s coffee is Lavazza Qualita Oro which is relatively mild flavoured. So maybe a stronger coffee like Lavazza Qualita Rossa or the Mr Viet I bought yesterday at TnT will have a strong enough flavour profile to stand up to the palm kernel flavour. For nutritional purposes, I’d like to use about 5 grams if I can do so without upsetting the coffee flavour profile. I like what I’ve developed.
