2023.02.03 03:37 AlanShore60607 The Exchange - restaurant week review

Just finished a lovely dinner at The Exchange at 224 S Michigan Avenue;' the TL;DR version is that it's well worth the money; the detailed version is below.
Interestingly, not only does The Exchange only offer a $59 restaurant week menu, the majority of the items on that menu are not on the regular menu, making comparison impossible, but these dishes were so exceptional that I do hope they migrate onto the main menu.
First, while the $59 menu is only 3 courses, it does include an alcoholic beverage with a choice of bubbles, hops, or strong, with the strong being a whiskey-based pre-mixed cocktail that seems heavy on fruit and is garnished with a large slice of fresh ginger. And, for those who do not consume alcohol, they will allow a substitution of any of their 3 mocktails for the beverage.
My first course was called spaghetti squash, but that's deceptively simple naming for a nest of chilled spaghetti squash completely subsumed by an incredible salad of cubed green apples and celery, lightly dressed, with impossibly thin slices of prosciutto or similar pork product dressing the top. Croutons have been replaced with toasted nuts so that the dish may remain gluten free, but that does add a nut allergen.
The second course was about 6 ounces of pork tenderloin, served with pureed sweet potato and a chipotle sauce, with some diced dates on the side.
And the dessert was a flourless chocolate cake.
I think it's worth mentioning that about 80% of the regular menu, and 100% of the restaurant week menu, was labeled as gluten free, making this one of the finest options for gluten free dining I have seen.

2023.02.03 03:31 Illigard Material baking tin (also, sugar free cake recipe)

So, in the war against rising utility bills, I'm switching to using the airfryer for baking. Which material do you think is best for the baking mold and why?
Metal, glass, silicone or ceramic?
So far I've only used metal, but I'm intrigued by silicone.
Also, because I bet I'm not the only one who wants to bake but doesn't want too much sugar, a sugar free recipe!
I have yet to try it but, as soon as my new baking mold comes in for my airfryer I plan to

2023.02.03 03:00 xerofoxx The POWER of using chatgpt to create a complex, nuanced character backstory. (very long read)

The initial prompt:
Playable races in Morrowind?
(It gave the obvious answer)

Create a detailed backstory of a high elf character with a passion for magical research with the motivation of wanting to become a god.
A high elf named Calendria was born in the city of Alinor, the capital of the Summerset Isles, to a wealthy and powerful family of magic users. From a young age, Calendria was fascinated by magic and the ancient legends of the Aedra and Daedra, the gods of Tamriel.
As Calendria grew older, she became increasingly dissatisfied with the limitations of her own magical abilities and the restrictions placed on her research by the laws of the Summerset Isle's ruling council. Driven by a desire to unlock the secrets of the universe and transcend her own limitations, Calendria began to delve deeper into forbidden magic, experimenting with dangerous and uncharted spells and rituals.
Fueled by her intense ambition, Calendria became obsessed with the idea of ascending to godhood, using her extensive knowledge of magic to unlock the secrets of creation and unlock the power of the Aedra and Daedra. Despite the warnings of her family and the consequences she faced if caught, Calendria was determined to continue her research and become the most powerful being in all of Tamriel.
With a burning passion for knowledge and a willingness to risk everything for her goals, Calendria left the comfort and safety of her home in Alinor and set out on a journey to the furthest reaches of Tamriel in search of powerful artifacts and ancient tomes, determined to unlock the secrets of the universe and ascend to godhood.

How did she end up on a prison ship headed for Vvardenfell?
Despite Calendria's extensive knowledge of magic and her determination to achieve her goals, her quest for power eventually caught the attention of the Thalmor, the ruling council of the Summerset Isles. Fearing the dangerous and potentially destructive consequences of Calendria's quest, the Thalmor dispatched agents to capture and detain her, hoping to prevent her from unlocking the secrets of the universe and ascending to godhood.
During her travels, Calendria was eventually caught and brought before the Thalmor for questioning and trial. Despite her protests and pleas for leniency, the Thalmor deemed Calendria too dangerous to be allowed to continue her quest and sentenced her to be transported to the island of Vvardenfell, a remote and isolated region known for its volatile and unpredictable magical properties.
Thus, Calendria found herself aboard a prison ship, bound for Vvardenfell and the unknown dangers that awaited her there. Despite the circumstances of her capture, Calendria remained determined to continue her quest for knowledge and power, eager to unlock the secrets of the universe and ascend to godhood, no matter the cost.

What's a childhood trauma that helped shape her desire to become a god
Calendria's childhood trauma could have had a significant impact on shaping her desire to become a god. Perhaps she experienced a significant loss or tragedy at a young age, such as the death of a loved one or a devastating natural disaster, that made her feel powerless and vulnerable. This event could have instilled in her a deep-seated fear of mortality and a desire for a form of immortality, leading her to seek out the secrets of the universe and the path to godhood as a means of ensuring her own survival and protection.
Alternatively, she may have been oppressed or marginalized in some way, either due to her race, gender, or other personal characteristic, leading her to seek power and knowledge as a means of gaining control over her own life and overcoming the obstacles she faced.
Regardless of the specific trauma she experienced, Calendria's quest for godhood can be seen as a manifestation of her desire to overcome her childhood hardships and attain a sense of security and control in a world that once seemed uncertain and unpredictable.

Expand on her backstory to include the death of a romantic interest that helped shaped her desire to obtain godhood.
Calendria's desire to become a god may have been further shaped by the death of a romantic interest. Perhaps she was deeply in love with someone she cared for deeply, but despite her best efforts, she was unable to save them from death. This event could have left her feeling helpless and powerless, and driven her to seek out the secrets of the universe and the path to godhood as a means of ensuring that she would never have to experience such a loss again.
Alternatively, her romantic interest may have shared her passion for magic and the pursuit of godhood, and their death may have only deepened her resolve to carry on their legacy. In this scenario, Calendria's quest for godhood could be seen as a means of honoring their memory and continuing the work they began together.
Regardless of the specific circumstances surrounding the death of her romantic interest, this event could have had a profound impact on Calendria's personal and professional motivations, driving her to push herself further in her studies and furthering her resolve to become a god.

Give a name to this romantic interest who shared her passion for magic that died & include a backstory on how they met & fell in love.
Let's call Calendria's romantic interest, Xalvador. Xalvador was also a high elf with a passion for magic and the pursuit of godhood. The two of them met while studying at the same magical academy, where they bonded over their shared interests and intellectual curiosity.
As they worked together on various magical projects and delved deeper into the mysteries of the universe, their mutual respect and admiration for each other blossomed into a deep and abiding love. They supported each other through their studies, encouraged each other to reach for the stars, and dreamed of one day becoming gods together.
However, their dreams were cut short when Xalvador fell ill and passed away despite Calendria's best efforts to save him. Devastated by the loss, Calendria vowed to continue their work and to one day become a god in his honor. Her love for Xalvador and her desire to fulfill their shared goals drive her forward, even as she carries the weight of her grief with her always.

Write a funny fond memory that led to them meeting eachother for the first time at the magical academy
Calendria and Xalvador's first meeting at the magical academy was the result of a hilarious mix-up. The academy was hosting a grand exhibition of magical talent, where students were invited to showcase their skills in front of the entire student body and faculty.
Calendria was preparing to demonstrate a spell she had been working on for weeks, when she noticed Xalvador in the crowd. Excited to finally get a chance to show off her hard work, she stepped up onto the stage and cast her spell. To her horror, the spell went wildly wrong and instead of conjuring a beautiful display of lights and colors, she summoned a mischievous imp that promptly caused chaos in the hall.
Amidst the commotion, Xalvador stepped forward and cast a spell of his own, banishing the imp back to its realm. As the crowd cheered and Calendria breathed a sigh of relief, she turned to thank Xalvador for saving her from embarrassment. However, in her flustered state, she ended up spilling her entire potion of Fire Resistance all over him.
Despite the initial awkwardness of the situation, Calendria and Xalvador quickly bonded over their mutual love of magic and their shared sense of humor. They laughed about the incident for weeks to come, and it became a fond memory that brought them closer together as they continued their studies at the academy.

Write a scene in which they are discussing deciding to delve into forbidden research against the academy rules.
Calendria and Xalvador were sitting in the academy library, surrounded by books and scrolls. They were deep in discussion, weighing the risks and rewards of pursuing forbidden knowledge.
"Xalvador, we've come so far in our studies, but there are still secrets that we've only just begun to uncover," Calendria said. "The academy has strict rules against delving into certain areas of magic, but what if that's exactly what we need to become gods?"
Xalvador leaned back in his chair and stroked his chin thoughtfully. "I understand where you're coming from, Calendria, but the consequences of breaking academy rules could be severe. We could be expelled, or worse, punished for our actions."
Calendria sighed. "I know it's risky, but we can be careful. We've always worked well together, and we've been successful in our studies so far. I have a feeling that the knowledge we seek lies just beyond our grasp. We could be on the cusp of a breakthrough."
Xalvador considered her words for a moment. "You're right," he said finally. "We've come too far to stop now. But we must be cautious. We'll start with small steps and see where it leads us. And if things become too dangerous, we'll stop and reassess."
With that, they made the decision to delve into forbidden research, despite the risks. They felt that the potential rewards were too great to ignore, and they were eager to push the boundaries of their knowledge and uncover the secrets of the universe.

Write a scene with their forbidden experiments that almost resulted in both their deaths but narrowly escaped, with xalvador hesitant to continue, but calendria insisting on pushing on. This partly becoming the reason xalvador dies later on.
Calendria and Xalvador's forbidden experiments had taken a dangerous turn. They were deep in the midst of a spell that was unlike anything they had attempted before. The energies they were harnessing were powerful and unstable, and they had to be precise in their movements and incantations.
Suddenly, the energies spiraled out of control and a massive surge of magic exploded from the spell, sending Calendria and Xalvador flying across the room. They landed in a heap on the floor, gasping for breath and clinging to consciousness.
"Xalvador, are you okay?" Calendria asked, her voice shaking.
Xalvador groaned and rubbed his head. "I think so," he said, "but we were lucky this time. We were so close to dying. This is getting too dangerous, Calendria. We need to stop."
Calendria nodded, her face pale and her hands still shaking. "You're right, Xalvador. We were foolish to push the limits like this."
But even as she spoke the words, she could feel the urge to continue, to see what lay beyond their current understanding of magic. "But we can't give up now," she said, determination creeping back into her voice. "We were so close to a breakthrough. Just think of what we could achieve if we succeed. We could become gods."
Xalvador looked at her, a mixture of fear and admiration in his eyes. "I don't know if I have the courage to continue, Calendria. The risks are too high. But I understand your drive and I'll support you, even if it's from a distance."
And so, with a heavy heart, Xalvador stepped back from their experiments, leaving Calendria to continue on her own. This decision would ultimately lead to Xalvador's death, as he was unable to protect himself from the dangers of magic without Calendria by his side. But Calendria, driven by her desire for knowledge and power, pushed forward, determined to achieve her ultimate goal and become a god.

Write a scene about a surprise illness that overtook xalvador as a result of previous experiments that unknowingly overtook him, being aware of it far too late to prevent him from dying. Include an intimate scene with Calendria holding him in her arms as he dies vowing to continue their work. Displaying mixed emotions of buried guilt and stronger resolve to continue their work in his honor.
Calendria had never felt so helpless in her life. Xalvador, her closest friend and the love of her life, was lying in bed, writhing in pain as a mysterious illness overtook him. He had been fine just a few days ago, but now he was fading away before her eyes.
"Calendria," Xalvador gasped, reaching out to her. "It's the magic. The experiments we did, they've taken their toll. I'm so sorry. I should have never let you convince me to push so far."
Tears streaming down her face, Calendria took his hand and sat down beside him. "Don't apologize, my love," she said softly. "I was the one who pushed us both. We were both driven by our desire to know more, to achieve greatness. And I would do it all again, if I could just have you back."
Xalvador smiled weakly. "You're a brilliant woman, Calendria," he said. "Don't let my death stop you. Our work, it was important. You must continue, in my honor. Promise me."
Calendria nodded, her emotions a tangled mess of guilt, sadness, and resolve. "I promise," she whispered. "I will continue our work, Xalvador. I will become a god, and I will never forget you."
With those final words, Xalvador took his last breath, and Calendria held him close as he passed. In that moment, she made a vow to never let her love for Xalvador be in vain. She would pour all of her energy and passion into their research, pushing the boundaries of magic even further than they had before. In Xalvador's honor, she would become a god, and she would never forget the sacrifice he made for their shared passion.

Write a scene where Calendria gets caught & expelled by the magical academy authorities, & brought to the Thalmor court to face justice, eventually ruling for her exile to the plague-ridden island of Vvardenfell
Calendria was dragged before the Thalmor court, her hands bound behind her back. She had been caught by the magical academy authorities, expelled for her forbidden experiments and now she was facing justice.
The court was filled with powerful, haughty elves, all of whom looked down on her with disdain. Calendria tried to hold her head up high, to show them that she was unafraid, but inside she was trembling with fear.
The judge, a high elf with a severe expression, regarded her coldly. "Calendria," he said. "You stand accused of engaging in forbidden research, of delving into magic that is deemed too dangerous for mortal hands. How do you plead?"
"Guilty," Calendria said firmly. "But I did what I did out of a desire to learn, to push the boundaries of magic. I never intended to cause harm."
The judge sneered. "Intentions mean little in the face of consequences," he said. "You have jeopardized the safety of all of Tamriel with your recklessness. And for that, you must face the consequences."
He consulted a scroll, and then looked back up at Calendria. "You are hereby exiled to the plague-ridden island of Vvardenfell," he said. "There, you will face the dangers of the Blight and the hazards of the wilderness. Perhaps, in time, you will learn to control your reckless desires."
Calendria was shocked. Vvardenfell was a harsh, unforgiving place, filled with deadly creatures and all manner of dangers. But she knew that she had no choice but to accept her sentence.
As she was led away, she couldn't help but think of Xalvador, and the vow she had made to continue their work. Even in exile, she would find a way to continue her studies, to delve deeper into the secrets of magic. And someday, she would return, stronger than ever, and show the Thalmor that she was not to be underestimated.

Write an emotional scene where calendria writes a letter to her parents explaining her arrest & the courts verdict, after which she gets chained & dragged to a prison ship waiting for take her to Vvardenfell
Calendria sat at a small wooden table in her cell, her hands shaking as she dipped her quill into an inkwell. She was writing a letter to her parents, a letter that would explain everything that had happened, and why she was being taken to Vvardenfell.
Tears welled up in her eyes as she wrote, memories of her childhood and her family flooding her mind. She remembered how proud her parents had been when she was accepted into the magical academy, and how supportive they had been of her passion for magic.
Now, she was writing to tell them that she had been expelled, arrested, and sentenced to exile. It was a cruel blow, and she felt as though she had failed them, failed herself.
She wrote of her forbidden experiments, of the dangerous magic she had explored, and of the tragic death of Xalvador. She told them of the Thalmor court, and the judge's verdict of exile. She explained that she was being taken to Vvardenfell, a harsh and dangerous place, where she would have to fend for herself and survive.
Calendria put down her quill and leaned back in her chair, tears streaming down her face. She couldn't bear the thought of leaving her parents, of never seeing them again. But she had to be strong, for their sake and for Xalvador's.
A guard came to her cell, a burly orc with a stern expression. "Time to go," he said gruffly. "Prison ship's waiting."
Calendria stood, wiping away her tears, and gathered her few belongings. She handed the guard the letter to her parents, and he pocketed it without a word.
The orc shackled her wrists and led her out of the cell, down a dimly-lit hallway and out into the bright sunlight. She was blinded for a moment, and then she saw it: a prison ship, bobbing gently in the water at the docks.
The orc dragged her down to the ship, and she was thrown into a dark, cramped hold. The door clanged shut, and she was alone, with nothing but the sound of the waves and her own thoughts.
She curled up on the rough wooden floor, her heart heavy with grief and fear. But she would not give up, she would not let Xalvador's death be in vain. She would continue their work, no matter what the cost. And someday, she would return, stronger and more powerful than ever before.

Write a brief scene where whe falls asleep while the ship is at sea going across the waves, where she begins to have a mysterious dream. Dont go into detail about the dream. She awakens vaguely remembering azura was in here dream. She wakes up to a fellow prisoner named juib who tells her they've reached Morrowind.
Calendria sighed heavily as she leaned against the rough wooden wall of the prison ship. The endless swaying of the waves was finally starting to lull her into a fitful sleep, despite the discomfort of the cramped and stinking quarters she was in. Just as she was beginning to drift off, she felt a strange sensation, like someone was calling her name. Suddenly, she was transported to a mysterious and otherworldly place, where she saw the face of a woman with flowing silver hair, Azura. Calendria rubbed her eyes, trying to remember more about the dream, but it was already slipping away from her.
Just then, she was jostled awake by a fellow prisoner named "Juib", a dark elf. "We've made it," he said, with a mischievous glint in his eye. "Welcome to Morrowind." Calendria rubbed her eyes and took a deep breath. She was here, in this strange and unfamiliar land, but she was also more determined than ever to fulfill her vow to Xalvador. She would continue their work, no matter what it took.

What are some unique personality traits that make for interesting gameplay unrelated to her quest?

  1. Intense Ambition: Calendria is driven by her intense desire to achieve her goals and will stop at nothing to unlock the secrets of the universe and ascend to godhood.
  2. Arrogance: Calendria's extensive knowledge and powerful magical abilities have given her a sense of superiority and a tendency to look down on those she considers less intelligent or capable.

These personality traits, combined with Calendria's background as a high elf and her unique quest for power, could make for a dynamic and unpredictable character, offering a wide range of role-playing opportunities for the player.

What are some personality limitations or quirks that can make gameplay more challenging
In addition to Calendria's unique personality traits, there are several limitations or quirks that can make gameplay more challenging:
  1. Impulsive: Calendria's intense ambition and desire for knowledge can sometimes lead her to make impulsive decisions without fully considering the consequences.
  2. Self-Centered: Calendria's quest for power and knowledge is often the primary focus of her life, making it difficult for her to see things from other perspectives or to empathize with others.
  3. Risk-Averse: Despite her willingness to take risks in pursuit of her goals, Calendria is often cautious and risk-averse when it comes to matters that could potentially undermine her position or jeopardize her quest for godhood.
  4. Unyielding: Calendria's determination and relentless pursuit of her goals can sometimes make her stubborn and unyielding, leading to conflicts with others and difficulties in forming alliances or negotiating.
  5. Greedy: Calendria's quest for power and knowledge is often motivated by a desire for personal gain and a thirst for power, making her prone to greed and selfishness.
These limitations and quirks can make gameplay more challenging by complicating Calendria's relationships with others, forcing the player to navigate difficult social situations and make difficult moral choices. Additionally, Calendria's impulsive and self-centered tendencies can sometimes lead her into dangerous or unfavorable situations, challenging the player to find creative solutions to overcome these obstacles.

What are some tangible gameplay goals to make playing fun?
Here are some tangible gameplay goals that could make playing Calendria, the high elf with a passion for magical research and a desire to become a god, fun:
  1. Acquiring Knowledge: Calendria's primary motivation is to unlock the secrets of the universe and advance her magical abilities. The player could set goals for themselves to collect books, artifacts, and other sources of knowledge that will help Calendria achieve her ultimate goal.
  2. Performing Powerful Magic: As Calendria becomes more knowledgeable and skilled in the ways of magic, the player could set goals for themselves to perform increasingly powerful spells and cast spells in new and creative ways.
  3. Building Influence and Power: Calendria's quest for godhood is often motivated by a desire for personal gain and a thirst for power. The player could set goals for themselves to gain influence and power through their interactions with other characters, forming alliances, and acquiring resources and wealth.
  4. Overcoming Obstacles: Calendria's path to godhood will be filled with obstacles, both internal and external. The player could set goals for themselves to overcome these obstacles, whether it be defeating powerful enemies, navigating complex political situations, or overcoming their own limitations and fears.
  5. Exploring the World: Vvardenfell is a vast and diverse world, full of strange and fascinating places to explore. The player could set goals for themselves to visit new locations, discover hidden secrets, and interact with the diverse cultures and creatures that inhabit the world.
These tangible gameplay goals can provide a sense of direction and purpose for the player, and help to keep the gameplay engaging and rewarding as Calendria progresses on her quest for godhood.

Give Calendria a random irrational fear to make gameplay a bit more interesting.
Calendria has a fear of enclosed spaces. She developed this fear as a result of being trapped in a cave with Xalvador during one of their magical experiments gone wrong. They were stuck in the dark, cramped space for hours and Calendria was filled with a sense of panic and claustrophobia. Ever since then, she has had a fear of being trapped in small, enclosed spaces. This fear will create new challenges for her in Vvardenfell, where she may need to explore tight, dark caves and ruins in order to find what she is looking for. The fear will add an extra layer of challenge to her gameplay, as she will need to confront and overcome her fears in order to progress.

Give Calendria a random additional interest she is surprised to gain once having spent time in Vvardenfell that will distract her from her goal of becoming a god.
Calendria discovers a love of horticulture and plant care. During her time in Vvardenfell, she becomes fascinated by the unique flora and fauna of the island and begins to take an interest in cultivating and caring for the plants she encounters. This interest serves as a welcome distraction from the constant stress and pressure of her goal of becoming a god. She spends hours tending to her small garden, cultivating new species, and observing the growth and interactions of the plants. This new hobby provides her with a sense of peace and purpose that she has not felt since before Xalvador's death. While she continues to work towards her goal, she finds that her love for plants and gardening adds a new dimension to her character and her journey in Vvardenfell.

Give a reason why Calendria doesn't like wearing armor.
Calendria does not like wearing armor because it restricts her movements and interferes with her casting spells. As a highly skilled mage, Calendria values fluidity and agility in her movements, as even the slightest hindrance can disrupt the flow of her magic. Armor, with its bulk and weight, feels constricting to her and impairs her ability to cast spells with precision and control. Additionally, Calendria is proud of her physical appearance and feels that armor detracts from her natural beauty and elegance. For these reasons, Calendria opts to rely on her magical abilities and prefer lighter, more flexible clothing that allows her full range of motion. This choice of attire may make her more vulnerable in combat, but she values the freedom and ease of movement it provides her.

Describe Calendria's beautiful appearance.
Calendria is a stunning high elf with a striking appearance. She has long, silver hair that cascades down her back in soft waves and piercing, crystal-blue eyes that sparkle with intelligence and mischief. Her features are delicate and refined, with high cheekbones, a narrow nose, and full lips. She has a slender and athletic build, with toned muscles that are gracefully visible beneath her form-fitting attire. Calendria carries herself with an air of confidence and poise, radiating an aura of beauty and elegance wherever she goes. When she casts spells, her movements are fluid and graceful, further emphasizing her otherworldly grace and beauty. Overall, Calendria is a captivating and mesmerizing sight to behold, and her beauty is as much a weapon as her mastery of magic.

Create a custom class for Calendria. Out of the 27 skills a player character has to choose from in Morrowind, choose 5 major skills & 5 minor skills that make sense for Calendria's character to have. Give reasons about what fascinates her about these skills. Also. Choose 2 favored attributes out of the 8 attributes a player character has. Explain why these are her 2 favored attributes.

  4. Mercantile: Calendria has a sharp mind for business, and knows how to negotiate the best prices for her goods. She uses her charm and wit to win over merchants and haggle for the best deal.
  5. Speechcraft: Calendria is a skilled communicator, and knows how to use her words to persuade others. Whether she's convincing a guard to let her pass or negotiating with a powerful mage, she always knows just what to say.
Favored Attributes:
  1. Intelligence: Calendria's mind is her greatest weapon, and she values intelligence above all else. She is constantly seeking to increase her knowledge and understanding of the world, and her intelligence allows her to cast spells with greater power and precision.
  2. Willpower: Calendria's iron will allows her to resist the mental assaults of her enemies and maintain her focus in the heat of battle. She is driven by her desire to become a god, and her willpower gives her the determination to see her goal through to the end.
Calendria is a master of the arcane arts, using her formidable intellect and iron will to wield powerful magic. She is a graceful and nimble combatant, relying on her spells and quick reflexes to stay one step ahead of her enemies. Whether she's casting illusions, creating enchanted objects, or unleashing destruction upon her foes, Calendria is a force to be reckoned with.

Out of the 13 birthsigns available for a player character, assign calendria a birthsign that fits her background and goal of becoming a god. provide rational why that birthsign fits her.
Calendria's birthsign would be the Apprentice. This birthsign fits her background as a dedicated and ambitious magical researcher who is constantly seeking knowledge and power. The Apprentice increases her overall Magicka regeneration and makes her more susceptible to magical spells, both of which align with her goal of mastering magic and eventually becoming a god. This birthsign also represents a deep fascination with the unknown and a willingness to take risks, which speaks to Calendria's fearlessness in delving into forbidden research and her desire to push the boundaries of what is possible with magic.

Any morrowind specific factions or types of people she'd most likely avoid?
Calendria would likely avoid the Mages Guild as she was expelled from their ranks for engaging in forbidden research. She may also avoid the Tribunal Temple, who worship the three god-kings of Morrowind, as she seeks to surpass them in power. Additionally, she may avoid members of the Thalmor, as they were the ones who sentenced her to exile in Vvardenfell. In her mind, these groups represent the restrictions on her research and the forces that would prevent her from achieving her goal of becoming a god.

in her own words why would she avoid these factions. write snippets of dialog of her thoughts about her wanting to avoid these factions. have the inner dialog reponses colored with her personality
Calendria would avoid the Thalmor and the Imperial Legion. She views the Thalmor as tyrannical and oppressive, blaming them for her exile to Vvardenfell and the loss of her beloved Xalvador. She feels their strict control of magic and their persecution of those who delve into forbidden research is unjust.
As for the Imperial Legion, Calendria sees them as a force of order and control, enforcing the policies of the Thalmor and the Empire. She believes their focus on maintaining order goes against the very essence of the magical arts, which are meant to be unpredictable and mysterious.
As a former member of the Mages Guild who was expelled due to her experimentation with forbidden magic, Calendria has a deep-seated dislike for the organization. In her own words, she thinks of the Mages Guild as "bureaucratic and stifling to true magical advancement." She sees the restrictions placed on magic use and research within the guild as limiting and overly cautious.
Despite this, she knows that the Mages Guild still holds a great deal of power and influence within Tamriel, and she is wary of crossing them again. "I can't afford to make any more enemies right now, especially not one with as much sway as the Mages Guild. I'll keep my head down and avoid them as much as possible," she thinks.
Calendria would likely avoid the Tribunal Temple for a few reasons. Firstly, their strict laws and regulations go against her own desire for freedom and control over her own destiny. She is fiercely independent and hates the idea of being told what she can and cannot do, especially in regards to her research into magic and the pursuit of godhood.
In her own thoughts, Calendria might say things like:

How would calendria feel about joining house telvanni? provide rational. write snippets of dialog of her thoughts about house telvanni. have the inner dialog reponses colored with her personality.
Calendria would be cautious but intrigued by House Telvanni. As an ambitious mage, she appreciates the independent spirit and disregard for tradition that characterizes the House. At the same time, she knows that their methods and pursuit of power can be dangerous and unpredictable.
"On the other hand, as an exile, I don't exactly have many options. House Telvanni could provide the resources and support I need to make my mark in Vvardenfell. I'll have to weigh the risks and rewards carefully before making a decision."

How would calendria most likely respond to the game's main quest and the prophecy of her as the nerevarine? would she persue it? or in her lust for power ignore this disctraction because its not her job to save the world. how would calendria react to fate trying to push her in that direction?
Calendria's reaction to the main quest and the prophecy of her being the Nerevarine would likely be mixed. On one hand, she is interested in acquiring power and knowledge to further her research, so the idea of being a prophesied hero with the power to save the world would likely appeal to her ego. However, on the other hand, her focus on her own goals and her lust for power might make her view the main quest as a distraction and she might not feel obligated to take on the mantle of the Nerevarine.
In her thoughts, she might see the prophecy as a challenge and an opportunity to prove herself as the most powerful and knowledgeable mage in the land, but she might also question the validity of the prophecy and whether or not it's worth deviating from her own goals. Her inner dialog might go something like this:
Calendria's final decision would likely be based on her own goals and motivations. If she sees the prophecy as a way to further her own ambitions, she might pursue it, but if she views it as a distraction from her true goals, she might ignore it and continue to focus on her own path.

I really hate icing bags, and using spoons/ladels for funnel cake, so I was thinking of buying one of these tubes and seeing how it turns out. My only concern is funnel cake mix tends to be a bit “thin and wet” if that makes sense. Would this be a worth while but or should I just stick to a ladle?

2023.02.02 23:52 purpleblooded7 Timothy hay in digging box/nesting material and food?

So apparently timothy hay can be very dangerous for rats if they consume it? I don't have my rats until next week but I already bought some timothy hay in advance as it was pretty cheap and I wanted to give it to my rats to dig in/nest with, NOT for them to eat it.
Also, my breeder makes a feed mix with bunny mix and other ingredients but the bunny mix contains grass and (timothy) hay. I know rats don't eat hay so I'm pretty confused as to why she uses those bunny mixes especially now that I've found out it can apparently be dangerous even instead of just useless.
What are you guys' thoughts/experience/knowledge on this?? Is it safe to give it to them as nesting material? And will they just not eat the hay even if it's in their food?? I guess my breeder hasn't had bad experiences with the mix..
I'm very confused

7. Get Enough Sleep - Getting enough sleep is an essential part of weight loss. Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep each night to help curb cravings and keep your metabolism running smoothly.
8. Drink Water - Drinking enough water can help keep you hydrated and your metabolism revved up, both of which can help with weight loss. Drinking a glass of water before each meal can also help you feel fuller, leading to less overeating.
9. Eat More Fiber - Fiber helps keep you fuller for longer and can help you stay on track with your weight loss goals. Try to include more fiber-rich foods in your diet, such as vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruits.

Regular physical activity is an essential component of any successful weight loss program. Exercise not only helps you burn calories and lose weight, it can also improve your mental and physical health, boost your mood, and increase your overall energy levels.
To maximize your weight loss efforts, it’s important to make sure that your exercise routine is tailored to your individual needs and preferences. For example, activities such as running, swimming, and biking may be ideal for some people, while others may prefer resistance training, yoga, or pilates.

Finally, while exercise can be beneficial for your overall health, it’s important to remember that it is only one component of a successful weight loss plan. To achieve your desired results, it is also necessary to focus on a balanced diet, adequate sleep, and stress management. All together, these 10 proven weight loss strategies that really work can help you reach your goals.

Incorporate Strength Training

When it comes to creating and achieving successful weight loss goals, incorporating strength training is one of the most proven strategies. Strength training is an impactful and effective way to build muscle as well as burn calories, leading to weight loss and a stronger, healthier body.
One of the best things about strength training is that it is accessible for any skill level. Everyone from athletes and seasoned gym goers to people who have never stepped foot in a gym before can benefit from strength training. People of any age can also safely incorporate strength training into their exercise routine, whether they are just beginning their weight loss journey or have already been on a quest for a while.

For those new to strength training, one excellent way to get started is to use bodyweight exercises. These exercises use the natural weight of one’s body to create resistance and can be done without any type of equipment. Examples of bodyweight exercises include push-ups, squats, and lunges. Once comfortable, people can add on to their routine with the help of weights, resistance bands, or other types of equipment to increase the challenge.
Similarly, there are a variety of ways to add to one’s strength training routine. Strength circuits, which involve alternating between upper body, lower body, and aerobic exercises, are a great way to target different muscles and keep your routine interesting. Additionally, HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) is another effective strength training strategy. HIIT focuses on alternating bursts of intense exercises with moments of rest.
Overall, strength training is an important and highly impactful addition to any weight loss routine. In addition to helping people reach their ultimate weight loss goals, it helps build strength, stamina, and confidence. By taking the time to understand the different strategies and strategies and types of strength training, people can incorporate strength training in an effective and enjoyable way.

Get Your Heart Rate Up

One of the most important keys to reaching your weight loss goals is to get your heart rate up. Your heart rate has the power to help you lose weight in so many ways, and it is important to understand how it can help you with your weight loss journey.
One of the 10 Proven Weight Loss Strategies That Really Work is to increase the intensity of your workouts. This can include increasing the speed and intensity of your cardiovascular exercises. When you exercise, your heart rate begins to rise and this helps to increase your metabolism and burn fat. When you incorporate high-intensity exercises into your workout routine, you will be able to burn more calories in less time.
Another great strategy is to perform interval training. Interval training involves alternating between periods of intense exercise and rest. This will help to keep your heart rate up and will also help to burn more calories in conjunction with your regular workouts. Tabata workouts are a form of interval training that involve bursts of intense exercise followed by short periods of rest. This can help you to get your heart rate up and burn fat more effectively.
In order to maximize the results of your workouts, it is important to monitor your heart rate. Wearable technology such as fitness trackers and smart watches are a great way to keep track of your heart rate during your workouts. This will give you a better understanding of how hard you are working and if you need to increase the intensity of your routine.
In order to reach your weight loss goals, it is important to get your heart rate up during exercise. Try incorporating high-intensity exercises, interval training, and monitoring your heart rate with wearable technology into your routine in order to maximize your results. By following these 10 Proven Weight Loss Strategies That Really Work, you can make progress towards reaching your weight loss goals.

Change Up Your Workouts

Weight loss is not an easy journey, but with the right strategies and dedication, you can reach your goals. One of the most important factors for successful weight loss is to keep your workouts varied and interesting. Making small changes to your routine can have a big impact on your progress. To help you get started, here are 10 proven weight loss strategies that really work when it comes to changing up your workouts.
1. Look for New Challenges: For those who find themselves stuck in a rut, or simply bored with their current workout routine, pushing your body to its limits can be an exhilarating and rewarding experience. Seek out a new challenge, such as a longer walk or run, a faster pace on the treadmill, a more intense spin class, or a new piece of equipment to try.
2. Mix It Up: Adding variety to your workouts will help you stay motivated and allow your body to work different muscles. Try alternating between cardio and strength training exercises to help you reach your weight loss goals. Consider adding yoga, Pilates or HIIT workouts to the mix.
3. Take It Outdoors: If you’re not a fan of the gym, there are still plenty of options for outdoor workouts. Take a hike, go for a long walk, or even try a group fitness class in the park. Making use of the natural environment can be a great way to keep things interesting and maintain your motivation.
4. Try Something New: Sometimes, just trying something different can be enough to add some excitement to your routine. If you're used to hitting the gym, why not try a swimming class or a kickboxing session? There are a huge range of activities you can try to switch up your workouts.
5. Do It With Friends: Having a workout buddy can be a great way to stay motivated, and to make working out a lot more fun. Get a group of friends together and take turns planning each workout session- everyone will benefit from the extra motivation.
6. Change the Order of Your Workouts: If you’re used to starting with a warm-up, then doing your strength training exercises, then cardio and then a cool-down, why not switch it up? Start with a cardio session and finish on the weights. This will help keep your body guessing and make your workouts more effective.
7. Set Goals: Having a goal will help you stay motivated and focused on your weight loss journey. It doesn't have to be anything too complicated- it could be as simple as aiming to run a certain distance or lift a certain amount of weight. Setting goals and tracking your progress can be a great way to stay motivated.
8. Reward Yourself: Make sure to reward yourself for your hard work and dedication. Whether it’s a cheat day, a massage, or a new piece of workout gear, rewarding yourself for your progress can help keep you motivated to keep going.
9. Listen to Music: Music can be a great source of motivation when it comes to working out. Put together a playlist of your favorite tunes and let it fuel your workouts.
10. Get Some Rest: Don't forget to rest. While exercise is important for weight loss, getting enough sleep and rest is also essential. Your body needs time to recover and rebuild from your workouts.
MUST SEE: This natural nutrient flushes fat out of your body overnight!


Eating a nutritionally balanced diet is essential to reaching your weight loss goals. A healthy diet should include a variety of fresh, nutrient-dense foods, ideally from all the major food groups. Eating a variety of these foods ensures that you get the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. Additionally, you should limit or avoid processed and high-calorie foods that are low in nutritional value.
Breaking down a healthy diet into smaller goals can help you stay on track with your weight loss plan. This includes consuming five to six small meals each day that are focused on lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. For proteins, look for lean sources such as poultry and fish. Complex carbohydrates include foods such as quinoa, brown rice and sweet potatoes. Healthy fats come from sources such as olive and coconut oils, avocados and nuts.
Including three servings of low-fat dairy each day helps boost the intake of essential vitamins and minerals. Eating a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables is also important for ensuring adequate vitamin and mineral intake. Additionally, water should be consumed throughout the day, since it helps keep the body hydrated and aids in weight loss.
Lastly, be sure to stick with your plan. It's easy to become derailed when trying to lose weight, but if you make small and achievable goals, you will see progress in the long run. Following these 10 proven weight loss strategies will help you reach your goals, and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. ⇒ The two-step method to stop the "fight or flight" weight gain cycle!

Focus on Eating Whole Foods

If you’re looking to achieve your weight loss goals, one of the most effective, proven strategies out there is to focus on eating whole foods. Whole foods, as opposed to processed, pre-packaged or fast foods, are unrefined and nutritionally dense. They still contain their natural fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients and give you the most bang for your nutritional buck. Eating whole foods can help provide your body with the energy, vitamins, and minerals it needs to stay healthy and help you reach your weight loss goals.
There are a variety of whole foods available, including those from the animal kingdom, such as lean meats and fish, as well as plant-based items like fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Focusing on eating an unrefined diet rich in whole foods can help you reduce your calorie intake, cut down on processed sugars, and incorporate more healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals into your meals. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables can also help increase your fiber intake, keeping you feeling fuller for longer. And when it comes to healthy weight loss, fiber is one of the most important nutrients to consider.
In addition to providing a healthy supply of vitamins and minerals, whole foods are also typically much lower in calories and fat than processed foods, making them a great option for those looking to trim down. Additionally, maintaining a diet rich in whole foods can help reduce your risk for certain chronic diseases and illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes.
One of the best ways to incorporate more whole foods into your diet is by planning meals and snacks ahead of time. When you have a plan in hand, it’s much simpler to make decisions about what to eat, helping to keep you from falling into the habit of relying on fast food and processed snacks. To make meal planning easier, consider doing a once-a-week grocery shopping trip and prepping meals and snacks over the weekend. That way, when it comes time to cook, you’ll have the ingredients on hand and can focus on eating whole foods to reach your weight loss goals.
By focusing on eating whole foods and avoiding processed, pre-packaged snacks, you can make a big change in your diet. You'll not only be fueling your body with the essential vitamins and minerals it needs, but you'll also be taking steps towards reaching your weight loss goals.

Pay Attention to Portions

Making the commitment to follow a healthy lifestyle can be a challenge when it comes to the struggle to reach your weight loss goals. Fortunately, there are a number of proven weight loss strategies that can help you along that path. Paying attention to portion sizes is one of the best ways to ensure that you are successful.
When it comes to portion sizes, it’s essential to practice moderation. The amount of food that you eat is just as important as the types of food that you consume. Eating too much, even if it is healthy food, can lead to weight gain. On the other hand, eating too little can cause your metabolism to slow down and eventually lead to malnutrition. Paying attention to the way you portion out your food is therefore of utmost importance.
The recommended serving size for the average adult is one cup. You can break this down further into 1/2 cup servings and adjust the amount accordingly if you are trying to lose weight. It’s best to use a measuring cup for accuracy. Doing so will help you become aware of exactly how much you’re consuming and will also allow you to adjust your portions as needed.
It’s also important to remember that the type of container you use to store and serve food can also have an impact on the overall portion size. For example, serving food on a small plate will help to keep portion sizes in check. Additionally, you should avoid serving food in large bowls or containers, as this can lead to overconsumption.
Finally, you should take into consideration the types of food that you are eating. The types of food that you choose to eat play an important role in how much you should be consuming. Foods that are high in calories and fat should be limited, while nutrient-dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains should be incorporated more frequently into your diet.
By following these 10 proven weight loss strategies, you can ensure that you’re getting the right amount of food, and the right types of food, to meet your weight loss goals. Paying attention to portion sizes is an important part of the equation, and it’s something you should keep in mind during each meal. With the right plan in place, you can make the commitment to a healthier lifestyle and reach your goals in no time.

Cut Down on Sugary Drinks

Cutting down on sugary drinks is an important part of any successful weight loss strategy. Research has conclusively shown that drinking sugary beverages like soft drinks, juices, and energy drinks leads to weight gain. In fact, sugary drinks have been directly linked to damaging health consequences like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. So if you’re serious about losing weight and keeping it off, it’s essential to cut down on sugary drinks.
The first step is to identify which sugary drinks you’re consuming, and then adjust accordingly. While soft drinks are the most obvious culprit, other beverages like fruit juices, energy drinks, and flavored coffee drinks also contain large amounts of added sugar. Read labels carefully and consider replacing these drinks with calorie-free alternatives such as unsweetened tea, coffee, or sparkling water.
In addition to replacing sugary drinks, you can also ditch unhealthy behaviors that often accompany them. Eating junk food while drinking sugary drinks is a double-whammy that can quickly add on the pounds. Instead, opt for healthy snacks like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains when enjoying a beverage.
Overall, cutting down on sugary drinks should be a major part of any healthy lifestyle change. This is one of the 10 proven weight loss strategies that really work, and should not be overlooked when it comes to reaching your goals. Making small, gradual changes to your diet and exercising regularly will help you achieve the body and health you desire. ⇒ Melt away stubborn fat with THIS 10-second bedtime ritual


Sleep plays an important role in helping you reach your weight loss goals. Numerous studies have shown that people who get adequate sleep have healthier body weights than those who do not get enough rest. Lack of sleep can lead to higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, influencing appetite and resulting in more cravings for unhealthy foods.
Sleep deprivation can also wreak havoc on your metabolic rate, causing you to burn fewer calories and store more fat. Too little sleep has been linked to increased levels of ghrelin, the hormone responsible for stimulating hunger, as well as higher levels of leptin, the hormone that increases appetite.
Getting enough rest is essential for weight loss. Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night and try to stick with a regular sleep schedule. Additionally, practice good sleep hygiene by avoiding caffeine and alcoholic beverages close to bedtime, and make sure your bedroom is cool and dark.
These 10 proven weight loss strategies that really work all include getting an adequate amount of sleep as an important component. With a consistent sleep schedule and healthy sleep habits, you can reach your weight loss goals in no time.

Set a Sleep Schedule

Establishing a consistent and adequate sleep schedule is essential for anyone attempting to lose weight. Sleep has been proven to play a critical role in regulating hormones, boosting metabolism, aiding in digestion, and managing stress levels. All of these are critical components for successful weight loss.
Before you can make any meaningful changes to your weight loss strategy, you need to ensure you are getting enough sleep each night. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends adults between the ages of 18 and 60 get a minimum of seven hours of sleep per night.
To start setting up a sleep schedule, begin by determining what time you need to wake up in the morning. Work backward from there and decide when you should go to bed, allowing yourself the recommended seven hours of sleep. This will allow you to establish a consistent sleep schedule. ⇒ Melt away stubborn fat with THIS 10-second bedtime ritual
Once you have a general idea of your sleep schedule, you can look at ways to make it more consistent. Try going to bed and waking up at the same time every day, even on the weekends. You can also limit the use of electronics and screens before bed, as the blue light from these devices has been shown to disrupt sleep.
Finally, carve out time before bed for relaxation. This can be something like reading a book, taking a warm bath, or meditating. Doing something calming before bed can help your body relax and promote better sleep.
By establishing a consistent sleep schedule, you are setting yourself up for success in your weight loss journey. Make sure you are getting the recommended seven hours of sleep each night and create a peaceful bedtime routine that allows you to relax and fall asleep quickly. With a consistent sleep schedule, you will be well on your way to achieving your goal of losing weight.

Minimize Screen Time Before Bed

Minimizing screen time immediately before bed is a key part of achieving weight loss goals. Studies have found that exposure to blue light from electronic devices can suppress the secretion of melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate sleep, which can lead to disrupted sleep cycles and fatigue. In turn, fatigue can lead to increased cravings for unhealthy snacks, leading to weight gain.
Minimizing screen time before bedtime supports better sleep, which has been shown to reduce hunger hormones like ghrelin, making it easier to stick to a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight. If you are having trouble sleeping, try turning off your devices an hour before bed and focusing on calming activities like journaling, reading, or stretching. Alternatively, if you need to use your device after dark, many phones and tablets have features that filter out blue light.
These strategies can be applied to other forms of screen time as well. Set a limit on how much television you watch before bed, and try to avoid activities like social media that may interfere with sleep. Additionally, while using your devices, be mindful of what you are eating. Studies have shown that people tend to mindlessly snack while scrolling through their phones, so be present with your food choices and make sure you are eating healthfully.
These strategies, when added to other proven methods for weight loss, can support your success in reaching your goals. Developing a consistent sleep schedule, staying mindful of portion sizes, and increasing physical activity are all essential components to successful and sustainable weight loss. With a commitment to these strategies, a healthy lifestyle and weight can be achieved. Related: Lose 135% more weight while you sleep!

2023.02.02 23:35 ryv_206 JAOM Help

Hi all, I started a Jaom a little over 3 weeks ago and had some trouble getting it going. Everything I read about them is they should foam and be super duper active. Mine was never like that. I followed the basic 1 gallon Jaom recipe except I put a tiny amount of nutrients thinking it can't hurt.
As my JAOM was inert for the first full day (when I read it should kick to life within an hour) I panicked and added a bunch more yeast. I kind of just closed it off and left it for 3 weeks, given it the odd swirl to redistribute the lees and any trapped yeast but that's it.
I started with a SG of 1.15 bang on and now 3 weeks later it's 0.997. Using a calculator I found online that's apparently 20% abv. I tasted it today and kind of confirmed it's not quite paint thinner but it's primarily alcohol with barely any hints of the original ingredients.
The orange has dropped out of the mix but the raisins are still floating about.
Can I save it? Will it get better if I rack it? Or do I need to start again with less yeast.
Thought it best to add an ingredients list anyway.

1.6Kg Honey
1 Gallon Water
1 Clove
1 Whole orange
Handful of Raisins
1 Cinnamon Stick
Yeast: (My clear mistake)
Started with the correctly measured amount of "bulldog high alcohol yeast with added nutrients"
Panic Yeast: (My second clear mistake)
Smatterings of Fleishmann's Bread Yeast

2023.02.02 23:08 Illusive_Owl Keep having issue where yeast doesn’t and I don’t understand why

Basically I was making a cinnamon roll recipe heres the dough
Dough - 1 cup (227g) milk, lukewarm - 2 large eggs, at room temperature - 5 tablespoons (74g) unsalted butter softened - 4 1/2 cups (539g) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour - 11g kosher salt - 1/2 cup (99g) granulated sugar - 2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast or active dry yeast, or one 1/4-ounce packet of Platinum Yeast from Red Star
Yeast is brand new from the store, instant yeast by fleischmanns. I used a hand mixing method because I can’t afford dough equipment such as a processor or hand mixer.
Ifeel that it has to do with the butter mainly? Because I made a pizza dough recipe that was also butter based and it did the same thing despite the yeast being alive when I tested it before hand. But everytime I hand mix a dough that doesn’t use butter it turns out fine, I even separate the salt and yeast in the bowl when I mix to prevent that from killing it. But it’s been 2 hours in my oven at 81 degrees fareinehieit and it still died.
For the butter I cut it into table spoons then once the ingredients were all mixed at once I added the butter after and squished the butter into the dough my clutching and gripping the dough at different sections til I didn’t see any chunks of butter sticking out of the dough. I then kneaded the dough on the counter til it pressed up when I pressed on it about 5 minutes covered and waited 2 hours but saw zero gas or bubbles.
I wonder if grating the butter cold and mixing it only with the flour by pressing it into the flour might be the way to go with hand mixing method? Any tips or insights would be much appreciated im tired of this happening when I have to wait 2 hours just to see no rise and start all over.
Edit: this is the dough real time after I waited the 2 hours letting it proof at 81F degrees with the oven light on https://imgur.com/a/ovLiGrr
And here’s the link to my past post where I experienced a similar issue: https://www.reddit.com/Baking/comments/zixg0n/i_was_following_this_chicago_deep_dish_dough/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
2nd EDIT I tried a different mixing method where I shredded the butter into the flour and worked it in before adding any of the other ingredients and still the same result no air bubbles after an hour covered at 82 degrees Fahrenheit😑
3rd EDIT I should’ve linked the direct recipe I used apologies here it is
4th EDIT it proofed!!!! Thank you to everyone that helped me trouble shoot those it was underkneaded

2023.02.02 23:05 raisinbizzle Honey as a trigger food?

We’ve always a suspected that honey might be a trigger food for my 4 year old daughter and FPIES, but giving her a tiny spoonful today seems to have confirmed it. She has had no other new foods today or anything questionable that might have contained her other trigger foods (egg, banana, avocado).
What is strange is that she has honey on a pretty regular basis, although it is almost always in processed foods (bread, Graham crackers, throat soothing lollipops, Honey Nut Cheerios). We’ve given her a little straight honey before to soothe a cough and that also did not prompt a reaction. But there have been multiples times she’s had honey in the past mixed with other things and we always blamed a different ingredient or thought maybe there was some potential unlabeled cross contamination.
Anyone else have an experience with a reaction to honey? Not sure if there are different types of honey and maybe it’s a specific type that is causing the issue here. The type we have now doesn’t have any special labeling to it - just plain honey.

2023.02.02 22:59 H_Real_88_14 The new songs gets better with each listen

I decided to give it a few more listens before sharing my opinion on it, and I appreciate it more and more. I loved it when I first heard it, but it has a certain quality that gives it repeat value.
I heard a few people say it is not for everyone, or treat it as a love it or hate, I in fact saw the opposite, it is a mix of rap, post punk, melodic shredding and heavy breakdowns. It almost revisited every era of FIR and had something for fans of each. The things is the combination was really well done and the transition was seamless.
The rap part was the best Ronnie ever rapped imo. He truly mastered his "alter negro."
The build up to the second half of the song was epic, with the rap switching to an Eminem style and the guitar and drums kicking slightly signaling a transition.
Then when the transition into the metal part finally came it was so cathartic, the transition was so well done and I loved the sweeping arpeggios.
Someone said the breakdown resembles the breakdown on VIMH, but I think it's just the structure of it is similar. That melodic lead guitar on top of it was awesome, and something we haven't had in their songs for a long time.

I'm not one to gush but this song really takes the cake. I showed it to my sister and it completely changed her perspective on modern heavy music.

Anyone have a great, but simple, soil recipe for succulents? More info below.
There is so much info online that it's a bit overwhelming. And so many ingredients!
I'd like to keep it simple if possible. I would like to keep only Pro-Mix soil, sand, perlite and pumice in my tiny place. What would be the best ratio with these 4 ingredients?
Pro-Mix has products labeled premium all-purpose mix (is that only for outside?), premium potting mix and premium cactus mix. Which one(s) should I be using?
Can I use the same soil for all my succulents? I have a jade, string of pearls, burro's tail, bear paws, ogre-ear jade.
