There's a sort of bloody schizophrenic side to it.
Just a few minutes away from people, and I'm
fully able to zoom out/in and forget about it all.

But as soon as you need to deal with other folks,
everyday small town life, the issue is there.
Even when I make the damnedest effort not to talk
politics...

You sort of feel the tension of an entire continent.
Oh well, election times.

Over the winter, I've been one of those lucky ones,
taking a week to hide in a forest cottage every
now and then and totally forget about the outside
world. So good. :)

We are all given good advice about communicating while socializing - don't talk Politics, Sex or Religion - because it will always end badly. chuckle.gif

I am not sure about the schizophrenic side to it, but maybe people's emotions are raw because we ultimately have no control over what our leaders end up doing and that is frustrating.

Depends on where the fish comes from. If it's lake fish it probably has some traces of Chernobyl and if it's from the Bay it's dioxins and probably a whole lot of other crap. The Baltic sea has its own set of problems...

I didn't know Rainbow Trout (a species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries) was so popular there. This one of most favourite fish to eat here in Canada, along with Pickerel.

Quote:Rainbow trout is still the most significant species of edible fish farmed in Finland, even though its production volumes have dropped since its heyday in the1990s. Some 12.4 million kilograms of rainbow trout were produced in 2014, representing over 90 per cent of all the edible fish produced in Finland. A little under 0.9 million kilograms of European whitefish were produced, representing a decrease of some 0.3 million kilograms compared to 2013. A total of some 0.1 million kilograms of the other species of fish being farmed, including trot, arctic charr, sturgeon and pike perch, were produced. Some 0.4 million kilograms of rainbow trout roe were produced for food.

They used to put out some 1000 little rainbow trouts in our lake up at the cabin in spring many years back. They were easy to catch and we had trout almost every day İmage

Once the rainbow trouts have swum around free for a while,
they are actually excellent food.

The ones you buy at the grocery store that come right out of
the farming cage are not good for me. My tummy tells me right
away, that they are not fit to eat.

Been eating strictly and only wild fish for a number of years.
Muuuuch much better. :)

Yes.

I guess I was referring to my sweet self - I'm totally double-minded
like that - I can get very passionate about things, but at the
same time I realize that the drama must be the same on all planets/
in all dimensions with our kind of individualized consciousness
- and feel no way.

I suppose I too have a double-mind at times and if someone accosts me with my views on politics, religion or sex, I sometimes will oblige. Lately, though I have smaller fish to fry.

BTW, if you are eating wild fish, don't eat the fat, innards and always check the flesh for anything that doesn't look healthy or right.

Yup.

Rocking out in a happy crowd to some kick-ass live music
is just about as fine as they get, in my humble opinion.

The lead singer of Pistolero Muerte got some serious vibes,
man...and balls! Goose bumps, everyone in the building.

The feelgood carried over to today cool.gif

That was an awesome gig.
