I've been West

FRIDAY: I ended up watching "Mad Max" at BP w/ GIRLZ, slouching at the bar to avoid bunches of the elbow-throwing-pleated-skirt clad faction and a guy who couldn't speak English, but wanted me to get him a Corona? I think? Dunno. Topic of Conv (besides Mel Gibson): Coastal Carolina University. Chanticleers; I know LOTS of you who started as freshmen, I know no one with an actual degree from your fine institution. What gives? There's at least 6 of you from my HS days that are in their 30s, and still bartender-ing/cosmetology-ing in the greater Wilmington area. Fess up, it's not what you planned when you declared your majors as "marine biology."

SATURDAY: So, every year, someone holds a day long food fest out in the Maryland farmland. It usually involves floatation devices, a tractor, homemade brew, and a trampoline. And crabs.

HIGHLIGHT REEL 05: - Misc. extra involvement of above, + an oversized golf set, a go-cart made from lawnmower parts, and a viking helmet. So that's what I did on Saturday. Although I did not ride the go-kart before there was a POLICE CITATION issued.

- I partook in some sweet ass cheerleading moves on the trampoline without pulling any groin muscles (a first)

- And I wore an airbrushed teeshirt the likes of which no one in the blogosphere has ever really witnessed. It's pretty fucking sweet, and involves a unicorn. A unicorn with arose in it's mouth. Prancing on the beach. At sunset. Next to a palm tree. Just take my word for it, it's awesome, and goes especially well with a sombrero.

- Oh yeah - I also had a conversation with Jess about how duct tape can remove warts. Seriously, try it! The Nabob prefers to shank them out with fingernail clippers.

- Also, we had Kline's, brought to us over many hours of road travel via cooler, nestled between 7-11 ice and beer.

SUNDAY: You may have gathered that I am obsessed with dogs. So, we went out and visited a really handsome man-dog with floppy ears, and now we have to make a decision whether to get a new roommate, in dog form.

Cons: We're not home as much as is responsible for a dog owner, so this might require a change in lifestyle. Also, he isn't perfect with the peeing yet.

Pros: He specifically requested to watch a lot of E! television with me, and play with tennis balls, and beating the everliving crap out of those small, pussy dogs.

WHAT??? STEP. He's bred to fight BEARS.

Okay, that's it. Oh yeah, and I saw "Wedding Crashers." Really.

Since I am uninteresting, go look at this instead.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',

Neil

Rhodiola Rosea is the latest natural remedy to join the arsenal of natural anxiety and stress (tibetan rhodiola) reducers.

Rhodiola Rosea, also known as Golden Root, is a native plant of arctic Siberia. For centuries it has been used by eastern European and Asian cultures for physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal ailments, infections, and nervous system disorders.

The first recorded medicinal applications of rodia riza (renamed Rhodiola Rosea) was made by the Greek physician, Dioscorides, in 77 C.E. in 'De Materia Medica'. Rhodiola Rosea has been included in official Russian medicine since 1969.

Despite its long history, the Western world has only recently become aware of the health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea. It has come to the attention of many natural health practitioners because of studies which tested its affects on combating anxiety and stress.

Rhodiola Rosea is considered an adaptogen. This means it has an overall stabilizing effect on the body without disrupting other functions. Its ability to normalize hormones may be effective for treating depression and anxiety.

Studies of Rhodiola Rosea show that it stimulates neurotransmitters and enhances their effects on the brain. This includes the ability for the brain to process serotonin which helps the body to adapt to stress.

Since adaptogens improve the body's overall ability to handle stress, it has been studied to identify it's effects on biological, chemical and physical stress.

A study was performed to test the effects of Rhodiola Rosea when stress or tibetan rhodiola is caused by intense mental work (such as final exams). Such tests concluded that using Rhodiola Rosea improved the amount and quality of work, increasing mental clarity and reducing the effects of fatigue.

The effects of Rhodiola Rosea have also been tested on stress and anxiety from both physical and emotional sources. A report by the American Botanical Council states that "Most users find that it improves their mood, energy level, and mental clarity." They also report on a study that indicated Rhodiola Rosea could increase stress tolerance while at the same time protecting the brain and heart from the physical affects of stress.

This report included details of studies which highlight the overall health benefits of Rhodiola Rosea.

The generally recommended dose is 200-600mg/day. The active properties should be a minimum 0.8 percent salidroside and 3 percent rosavin.

It is important for consumers to know that Rhodiola may be sold using other species that do not share the properties of Rhodiola Rosea, tibetan rhodiola, or at ineffective strengths for treatment. Anyone with depression or anxiety should also check with a health professional when treating these symptoms.
