Primal Anne’s Log Earth Date 12/6/2012


Breakfast: baked eggs with chopped bacon, strawberries

Lunch: pork patty, tomatoes, portobello mushroom

Supper: chili beef & asparagus

Snacks: pork jerky, dark chocolate, Greek Yogurt & Manuka honey

Beverages: lemon juice in water (1), black tea & milk (several), coffee with cream (1), water (3), dandelion tea (0)

In the kitchen:

      • Curing: leg of pork (making air-dried ham)
      • Fermenting: sauerkraut


Move around a lot at a slow pace: wandered around Branksome Dene Chine


    • 30-up single leg preparatory exercise
    • 100-up minor with arm action

Sleep/Rest:  7 hours

Play: learning to juggle

Sunlight: Sun was a no show again. Plenty of daylight.

Avoid trauma: Yes unlike the young Winston Churchill who fell from a footbridge in the Chine in 1892. The 18-year-old Churchill, staying locally, was being chased by his younger brother and cousin. He tried to jump from the bridge to an adjacent fir tree to avoid capture. He lost his grip and fell 30 feet to the ground below. He required surgery, was unconscious for three days and bed bound for three months. It was during the convalescence that Churchill became interested in politics. The rest, as they say, is history.

Incidentally it is often written that Churchill fell off the footbridge at Alum Chine. Easy to believe as there is no longer a bridge in Branksome Dene but there is one at Alum. However the footbridge at Alum Chine wasn’t built until 1904. Also Branksome Dene is where Churchill’s uncle and aunt, The Lord and Lady Wimborne, had a mansion.

Avoid Poisons: Yes

Use your mind:

    • Blogged
    • Researching arm movement when running and sugar
    • Listened to recording of Stephen Fry’s radio show on ‘Pun’
    • Working out how to use Son of Hibachi Grill

Primal Challenge (avoid using p.c. after 7pm): Yes

Anne’s Primal Challenge (100-up): Yes

Supplemental: Branksome Dene Chine full of brambles. Could be a good spot for blackberrying in the autumn.
