    • β—‹  I believe their kindness will help them recover. People receiving their help will do better on fighting cancer as well!
      • β—‹  Yes! Positive spirits and happy feelings do help patients to recover. Best wishes to them!
    • ●  Have you watched the music play "Come Far Away"? So touched. Love NF and the NF'ers.
      • β—‹  Come From Away, the musical?
        • β—‹  Looks like that's the one. Soundtrack:
        • ●  Yes, you might want to watch it during your trip to Toronto
          • β—‹  Thanks for the information!

    • β—‹  Have you ever gotten any injury during your practicing of yoga?
      • β—‹  Yes, quite a lot during the first several months of Ashtanga.
  • Today's harvest. Guess what they are? Today's harvest. Guess what they are?
    • β—‹  They look like this.
      • β—‹  Haha I never knew how they were called in Chinese. But probably that's the right one. They are called sunchokes.
    • ●  Wow! Read the last paragraph in the link about this plant, you should get a good luck! πŸ˜† Did you?
      • β—‹  πŸ˜‚ will see...
    • ●  Sailor, how many years have you grown this type of plant or veggie for?
      • β—‹  First year
    • ●  Are you sure their name is Yang Jiang (Helianthus tuberosus)? They are from Fairies. Hahaha, that's why you are so interested in staying at the garden and growing vegetables there.😁😁😁
      • β—‹  Not sure, but probably they are.
    • ●  Yes, they are. See this link.
    • ●  I just realized most likely I have this plant in my garden. I purchased the plant in a big pot (about $20) when it's almost blooming. And then I planted it into my yard with the original potting soil.
    • ●  It's very easy to grow. I see the yellow flowers ( little sunflowers alike) every summer, and the flowers last much longer time comparing with other flowers. I do like this plant, but I never knew it's edible.
      • β—‹  Mine didn't have a chance to flower. They got too tall, too tall to stay upright, before I cut them half in height.
    • ●  I ate the roots for a few times many many years' ago when I was in China,but I didn't know about its leaves and flowers. In Canada, (most likely) I have this plant in garden but I thought it's only a type of flower, but not a type of food. Good to know it. I will verify the one in my garden later. Thanks for sharing!
    • ●  I had this (see picture) and later I have planted more of the yellow flowers at a different location.
      • β—‹  Compare with the picture in this link.
        • β—‹  Looks like what you had was a different plant?
          • β—‹  Not sure yet. I will verify it later.
  • Breakfast - photos taken by different cell phones Breakfast - photos taken by different cell phones
    • β—‹  The 2nd one.
      • β—‹  Seems the 2nd one is brighter?
        • β—‹  Yes, they are slightly different. The two phones are the same brand, but different models. Yesterday I noticed their effects are slightly different while I was transferring all photos out from the two phones.
          • β—‹  I transferred out more than two thousands photos (and some videos)from the two phones yesterday. So now they are ready to take lots of new pictures for the rehearsal event.
    • ●  Healthy breakfast! I see goji berries.
      • β—‹  They are snow mushrooms(tremella fuciformis), lotus seeds, organic mung beans, organic red beans, goji berries, peanuts, organic glutinous broomcorn millets, glutinous rice, plus an egg.

    • β—‹  I feel I am really falling behind😒.
      • β—‹  It's no longer important to keep hardware up to date. My laptop was from several years ago and still works great.
        • β—‹  True. Make sense.
  • About illegal cannabis stores in Toronto About illegal cannabis stores in Toronto
    • β—‹  No matter illegal or "legal", they all sell things harmful to people's mental health. To me they are the same.
      • β—‹  Totally agree with you!

    • β—‹  Sad. Burkina Faso, I don't know this name.
      • β—‹  Me too.
      • ●  According to this news, make sure to avoid travelling to Burkina Faso, particularly the northern area and its borders with Mali, Niger, Benin and Togo because of the threat of terrorism, banditry, and kidnapping. And avoid travelling to Syria as well.
    • ●  Some info about West Africa countries.

    • ●  If all of these are not enough, I would say takinge some Vitamin D3. Broccoli is a very good one to eat. I love low fat milk, some of fishes, tofu and almost all of vegetables and fruits.
    • ●  Bone soup is very good for health if without too much fat. But patience is really needed for making the soup. Good to know making bone soup with soy beans since I never cooked bones with soy or soy products together. Thanks!
