Rubbing tired feet with Castor oil

Few weeks ago, I almost got a foot blister from running/walking. When I got home I rubbed it with castor oil. I have no idea if it's going to work or not. The next morning my foot was fine. The blister that was forming hardened up. Castor oil works!
My feet are tired tonight and another spot is about to get blistered so I'm rubbing it with castor oil right now. Hopefully tomorrow it'll be alright.

Quinoa everyday

I love quinoa (keen-wah) I ate it at least twice a day. It sure is better than rice. A low-GI, a complete protein source, a good source for vitamins, minerals, and fiber. It also has all nine amino acids. Quinoa is a mother of all grains.
Below is my post from 2015.

Pack Testing for Fire Familiarization training

To be a wildland firefighter type 2 crew you must passed the Arduous Pack Test. Meaning you have to carry 45lbs for 3 miles in less than 45 minutes. Not only you have to passed the mandatory training but also be physically fit.
I'm going to be in Fire Familiarization training next month. I will experience being a wildland Firefighter and get familiarize with the fire . I have most of the mandatory training done. But I still need to go through physical exam as well as pack testing. I've been training and I need to do better. I got my boots and I've started breaking them in by walking 3 miles every day. I'm so excited!

Organic Banana

This is one thing I'm really picky with when it comes to banana. I grew up with several choices of bananas to eat. But here in Fairbanks Alaska we only have 2 choices, Organic or not organic.  So, give me organic banana or none at all. I can tell the difference and I refused to eat.
