First Red Wine

...and now garlic turns out to be heart healthy. And a cancer preventative. Life is good. If everyone would eat it, few would be bothered by the aroma.

It also wards off the Clintons, when they come out at night to steal manuscripts.

Do you ever tire of making an ass of yourself in public, Jim?

Posted by Rand Simberg at October 16, 2007 08:17 AM

Don't answer, Jim! It's a trick question!

I think garlic helps you live longer by keeping away other people so you don't catch infectious diseases.

Add olive oil to the red wine and garlic, and it's a healthy part of the Meditteranian diet.

I donít know about you Rand, but I find Jimís advice helpful. It is perfect advice to keep blood suckers of all types away.

Aroma? You mean fragrance.

I recall as a young child in the early 70's hearing complaints from the All Blacks about the stench of garlic in the scrums when playing against France. At the time I'd never come across it myself.

But by the time they bombed the Rainbow Warrior garlic was a normal part of the NZ diet and I don't think I've come across anyone at all who objected to it in the last fifteen years. It's impossible to have too much! (well, ok, maybe cut back when you can tell the sweat of your back smells of garlic...)

Garlic, over 200 different varieties - been known as an antiseptic and heart health herb for many years. Have taken it every day for the last 20 years or so. It des work, not quickly but it does help quite a bit.

The Clintons are vampires? Hey, Rush Limbaugh was right!

1 part sesame oil
1 part soy sauce
2 parts fresh minced garlic (I buy it "pre minced" in those little jars at the supermarket.)

Put it in a blender and set it on puree for about three minutes.

Does wonders on grilled vegetables, pork, beef, hell...just about anything you can put on a grill. Really, really good on grilled portabello mushrooms.
