New Irish Green Gem Juice Drink For St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s 2011

Thanks to the local City Idiot for this gem.

JUST IN TIME FOR ST PADDY’S DAY

HERE’S A TWIST ON A FAVORITE OF MINE



Since i am often the DD – “designated driver” verses the luckier DD – “designated drunk”, I have to find a non-alcoholic beverage to consume while out at the clubs, bars, restaurants and parties.

YOU GET THE LUCKY LEPRACHAUN

GOLD RUNNING THRU YOUR VEINS!

So what’s better than tiger blood juice and a perfect drink for St Patrick’s Day?

why, Lucky Irish Gem Juice!

Careful how you say that. Don’t let drunk friends order it as if they’re slurring their speech  it could sound like you’re asking for Jim Juice, aka Jim Jones Blue Kool-Aid suicide drink. Just remember Green Good. Blue Bad. Simple alliteration memory jogger there. GG good, BB bad.

This drink can pass as non-alcoholic and safe for the non-idiots to drink who are the chosen ones to take their village idiot and city idiot buddies home from their favorite Irish Pub this St Paddy’s day.  An excellent choice for those who choose not to imbibe the green beer monster.

LUCKY IRISH GEM JUICE (inventor – Terry P Carter)

Drink Recipe:

  • Ginger Ale
  • Ice
  • Bitters –  i like the taste – it really amps up the ginger ale.  Bitters does have alcohol but it’s like the equivalent of adding vanilla extract to a drink. A few drops aren’t going to do anything to your sobriety. Here’s a few BITTERS I like to use.
  • Chloroxygen – 4 to 10 drops will do the trick depending on how ‘healthy and energetic’ you want to make the drink.

REGULAR Chloroxygen or MINT Chloroxygen can be used depending on your preference.

*disclaimer 1*

THE LUCKY IRISH LEPRACHAUN GRASS  is actually CHLOROXYGEN chloropyll supplement – great for natural energy boost and great for solving and avoiding altitude sickness / acclimating yourself to high altitude especially if you are like me and live most of the time near sea level.

Regarding the video – it’s my interpretation of a city idiot – urban version of the Village idiot.

It’s not polished, predictable, professional, etc. and it’s not supposed to be. He’s an IDIOT, duh.

It’s a bit off, stupid, and just a little out there…. although as with the special idiot savant variety, there’s always a little bit of wisdom in older idiots – they are most likely the smartest of the bunch as they are still alive.

. . . and yes, i AM Irish but pretty far removed from the homeland – ancestors bailed out of the Blarney ages ago.

Solfeggio Music Player 528Hz

528Hz Solfeggio Musical Instrument

Here’s a fun musical instrument you can experiment with available on my friend down under’s website.

by dragging your mouse over the ‘notes’ you can play the Solfeggio scale:

63Hz – 174Hz – 285Hz – 396Hz – 417Hz – 528Hz – 639Hz – 741Hz – 852Hz – 963Hz – 1074Hz and 1185Hz.

I found you can play a Solfeggio version of the theme to Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

on the equal temperment scale the opening notes are A-B-G-G(octave lower)-D

On Solfeggio, try playing 963 – 1074 – 852 – 417 – 639.

Wonder if Speilberg or John Williams or whoever was responsible for that melody to communicate with the aliens in the movie has any significance or just coincidence.

Some of the frequencies are claimed to be associated with chakras and healing tones:

  • 396 Hz – Releasing emotional patterns.
  • 417 Hz – Breaking up crystallized emotional patterns.
  • 528 Hz – Love frequency “DNA integrity and repair”.
  • 639 Hz – Whole brain quadrant interconnectedness. Connecting Relationships.
  • 741 Hz – Intuitive states & non-linear knowing. Awakening Intuition.
  • 852 Hz – Pure love: unconditional love and returning to Spiritual Order.

Jandy’s site also has some great Binaural beat music that is great for

meditation, relaxation and general tripping out.


Borucan Costa Rica Rainforest Masks At Selby Gardens

Here’ s my personal gallery and account of the

2009 Costa Rica Rainforest Mask exhibition at Selby Gardens @ Sarasota Florida.

For the most part, I will let the pictures of the masks speak for me.

That year, prices ranged from $200 to $1000 for the long totum-like mask.  Most were priced in the 400-500 range.  All masks were exquisite in their detail and as colorful as the rainforest from which they originated. These are from the Costa Rican rainforest. Originally I was thinking Amazon=Brazil, Peru, etc… But of course, not all rainforests are found in the amazon . . . Just conditioned to go there right away – blame it on Child of the 80s symdrome.

Borucan Mask-Making: The Men Behind the Masks

Almost 20 years ago, Borucan mask-making was nearly lost as an art form. One man, Don Ismael Gonzalez, took it upon himself to re-invigorate the carving tradition by teaching it to a group of young boys. Today the new master carvers are the teachers of a new generation of apprentices. As a result, the Borucan people have a renewed pride in their customs.

There are three distinct styles of masks, each of which tells a specific story about Borucan culture. The first is the Diablito, or devil mask, which comes directly from the festival El Jeugo de LosDiablitos. It is the most traditional, dating back to the Spanish occupation of the region. The second is the Ecologica, featuring the plants and animals of the rainforest. These were originated by the new generation of artists concerned about the imminent threat to their culture form the destruction of their environment. The third is the Combinados. These masks are a metamorphosis of both the Dialito and the Ecologica. They represent the coming together of the old traditions with the new generation.

All masks are original one of a kind designs carved from balsa wood and cedar. The artists use acrylic paint to adorn the balsa images and traditional hand-hewn tools to carve. The design is drawn onto the front surface and then carved. This process creates a relief out of one piece of wood.

Orchids: Nature’s Perfect Mask

Note – Selby gardens started as a Orchid research facility.

A mask by definition is an object that hides reality and enhances an image for the purpose of eliciting a predictable response. Sometimes it mimics a powerful and fearsom entity and in other cases it acts to seduce in order to continue its existence.

The Borucan Indians of Costa Rica are continuing their rich tradition of mask making to ensure their survival. Originally, the masks were used as a ritual defense against the Spanish Invaders. Today they are an exquisite example of an art form which has captured our awareness and invited us to help perpetuate this significant custom.

As with the mask, the orchids image has been specially crafted by Nature through color, shape and aroma to attract the one significant insect or animal suited for its propagation. For this reason Nature has perfected a mask making tradition of its own.

The Rainforest Mask Exhibit is coming back for it’s 7th time at Selby Gardens starting this March 4th 2011 through April 15th.

The Borucans will demonstrate their carving and painting during four “Meet the Artists” sessions in the Museum of Botany and the Arts on Saturdays and Sundays, March 5, 6, 12 & 13 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Spanish interpreters will be available to translate your questions.
