    ACV has many health benefits, but you shouldn't be taking swigs from the bottle. Mix it in water or tea, add some ginger and turmeric, some honey. Not good for your throat or stomach lining to be gulping it down straight.

    such as?

    Since starting ACV I no longer have major heart burn or esophageal spasms. It also helps keep the uric acid down that causes gout flare ups. I've read many articles that state that the human body functions better when more acidic than base.

    And yet all the rage right now is "alkaline water" I snicker a little when folks at work expunging the benefits of this new fad alkaline water lol.

    Not to be confused with mineral water .... I drink alkaline water everyday as mine comes out of the tap at a ph of 8.8 ... Pretty alkaline if you ask me.

    I cannot drink ACV straight from the bottle I've tried. It for me was far more irritating than the old 200proof Everclear. I cannot see that acidity being good for the esophagus, well since stomach acid erodes it so badly.

    It wouldn't be expected to be good for the esophagus, although we eat and drink plenty of acidic stuff all of the time.

    Good, balanced diet of healthy foodstuffs trumps the fads every time IMO (although I am not a nutritional biochemist, just the regular old kind).

    Forget the PH balanced water, you'd benefit more from water without the fluoride in it. I like Fiji water for that, I'm sure there is more I just haven't looked that hard.

    I'm weird like that. I like the taste. I always chase it with water to keep the teeth and throat rinsed.

    Usually, if I am "full of chili", it would be best to leave me alone for at least 8 hours. Or even more depending on what I used to wash it down. :o

    My son. Learning the basics of marksmanship.

    If anyone is offended please let me know and I'll take it down.
    I was going to let him shoot the 300 Ultra Mag but did not want the wife to kill me.

    Yes, you can.

    Roll your own AVC, that is.

    Not mine, but I am fiddlin' with it as I type this, and it's -- rather remarkably good.

    The only problems: 1) it's dual mono (two knobs to turn)
    and 2) it's not audio taper... it's Variac taper.

    B)

    I spent some quality time trying to plink a groundhog earlier today -- but the rascal was (is) wily.

    It's a big, fat one -- natural selection and all that, I fear. :(

    I like groundhogs. All of the ones in our backyard are called Gordon, regardless of sex. Not that I know how to determine the sex of a groundhog. Nor do I know the feminine of Gordon - Gordette?

    Best to teach them early. Not toys, but definitely something to enjoy. Does he know the first 2 rules?
