& give us this day our daily salad…(or, what I ate while I got rid of a breast lump…)

DSC03889While getting rid of a breast lump I went on a mainly raw plant based diet with fish & seafood as my cheats…The picture shows one of my creations, which I varied a bit from day to day…

Here is what is in that bowl today…

Salad dressing:

Dijon horseradish mustard(several large globs)

Apple Cider Vinegar(some healthy squirts)

Olive Oil(a generous pour)

Squeeze a whole lemon & let the seeds fall in too & eat them they are healthy & anti-cancer 

Salad:

grape tomatoes(a whole lot)

sugar snap peas(an entire bag)

sesame seeds(like a cup-alot)

a nut & seed mix with dried cranberries & raisins & pumpkin seeds & nuts(a whole bagful)

one tin of smoked mussels for protein with the oil too

one green apple chopped in pretty big pieces easy

shredded cabbage salad with some other shredded stuff like brussel sprouts & carrots(one half bag)

a giant avocado in big pieces

a Fork…

Netflix:am currently watching Damages with Glenn Close, & more stars but am too hungry to write them down…

Eat a giant salad daily…at least one…Have been eating leftover salad at breakfast & sometimes lunch too…Tons of energy!

Lost 25 lbs without feeling hungry…

Now I look at restaurant food & think :”my salad is better!”…

Morning update(Aug 16, 2014)

here is this morning’s picture!

smaller! yay!

making progress with the manganese pills, licorice root extract syrup,
madagascar periwinkle tea protocol…

***(Mn, Cu, Io…these are the symbols for those 3 elements on the periodic table)

****(They antagonize these 3 things- Fe, P, Ca)

am going to look for a measurement ruler for pictures program now to
help me measure inside pictures…DIY mammography

Ok…(Later this morning of the 16th…9:57 am)

Turns out measuring things in Macro in a picture is hard to do…

So this is what I did…

I took out my measuring tape & guesstimated how big the lump is by feeling it…

About One inch exactly today…

So that means that in the picture, the circle of the lump is about one inch in diameter in the photo…

So, in the free Mac Paintbrush program, I drew the circle & put some rectangles beside it with notch marks just to help me guide how big things were in Macro…Note:My notches are not real measures, I just needed something graphlike to get an idea of how big things were by eyeballing the notches & the circle…

Here is that hand drawn Macro Ruler…macro ruler

So again: The circle in the picture is the same size as the circle of the lump in my Macro real picture of the lump…

Ok so then…

I opened the real picture of the lump in Mac Preview…

Then I opened the picture of my new Macro ruler, grabbed the circle in the ruler picture, & pasted it on top of the real lump…aug16 morn detailsruler

Of course, the circle sits on top of the lump easily because that is my control circle…

But tomorrow & the next day & the next, I can use this same control circle, just pasting it on whatever new Macro picture I take…

This will help to document in pictures, how the lump is shrinking with my protocol…

*Theory Engineer (5 page pdf free download)*Here is a FREE PDf Download you can read & have right now called THEORY ENGINEER which is short but contains the salmonella cancer pneumonia linkage logic plus the breast cancer lump nonsurgical protocol for removal according to Sari Grove…You can give this to friends who have breast cancer if you want to…Please don’t sell it or repost it publicly as a pdf, mainly because this kind of information can be dangerous if misused or misunderstood, so let people come here to get it themselves so they can ask me questions grove@sent.com or send me compliments…You are welcome!

A Vase is a Visual Artist Self-Employed

First…My apologies to those who were subscribed to sarigrove.com & got like a whole pile of blog posts all together today…

I migrated my grovecanada.ca Wix website to WordPress.com as a blog because the Flash nature of the Wix website, though beautiful, was interfering with people finding it…

I am keeping the Wix website(at grovecanada.ca) but have put the whole thing here, in case people have missed out on some good information because Search Engines were not seeing the Flash site…

So…Sorry…

By the way…

if you have a website & want to migrate it, I used a service called CMS to CMS http://www.cms2cms.com/

CMS to CMS EASILY grabs a website & migrates it to the provider of your choice…

I should mention-I wanted to migrate from Wix to WordPress.com…What I did was migrate from Wix to a WordPress.org thingy they produce for you, called a preview, & they give you a username testuser, & password testuser, to get into the dashboard…

From that preview site, which was actually a WordPress.org thing, I MANUALLY, copied & pasted each post(I chose BLOG as the template style I wanted), INTO my existing WordPress.com blog as individual posts…

I was NOT able to find an easier way to go from WordPress.org to WordPress.com

But it only cost me $21 dollars, & about a mere hour of copying & pasting…

Some of the links or embeds didn’t work in WordPress.com when I moved them over…You can find the original stuff still at grovecanada.ca (just look at the headings to find the right page)…

Sari Grove. V.A.S.E. (a Vase is a 'visual artist self-employed').

A short story about how I am now doing sculpture again instead of painting:
  •   It began when I stopped painting…This has happened to me before…My eyes start to "telescope", which is a painter's syndrome…It means that each eye starts acting independently…You look left & only one eye goes that way…Some people used to think that telescoping was a gift, that it helped you to see your subject better…Either way my Dad was a neuro-ophthalmologist & eye health was & is an important way for me to honour him… So I decided to take a long sabbatical… Then, of course, this Virgo workaholic got bored… So I started feeding Trumpeter Swans…They were the only waterbird that I was allowed to feed with impunity…I joined the Trumpeter Swan Society because I found out that members fed these black-billed-indigenous-to-North-America winter-loving swans who make trumpet sounds, from November to April)our winter), & this was totally legal…I feed Red Ribbon wild bird seed from Canadian Tire & honestly, if I don't feed the smaller waterbirds first, the Trumpeter swans often won't eat…Very polite giants… Anyhow…I noticed the swans weren't nesting…They didn't have nests…They were sitting on the ice…I thought that must be cold…So I decided to make them a nice nest that they could sit upon in the winter months so their bums wouldn't get cold…From my years & years of downhill skiing, which began at the tender age of 2 & a half, I felt tremendous sympathy for those who had a cold bum…As a child, sitting on those metal ski lift chairs, often in a windy icy cold climb, sometimes alone, sometimes with a kindly skiier, sometimes with my brother, a cold bum was the only common denominator…Most of the time when I skiied I actually had no sense of bum at all- it's like it wasn't there, it was so numb… So I started weaving artificial Trumpeter swan nests…Took me 8 prototypes, & probably a year off & on, including help from kindly animal lovers who supported me in a grant request (from Pepsi)…Asking for money publicly online is a great way to get support & also people's opinions on your design…Once my prototype was public, I started scrutinizing it more closely than before…This led to a major design change… At some point, maybe halfway along the way, I asked for permission from TRCA to put a nest out on their land…TRCA is Toronto region Conservation Authority…They said yes but no goose could sit upon the nest…I was required to harass a goose off should that situation occur…Now I am old school & happen to know that it is federally illegal to harass a Canada Goose…So I said no…I said I would build a giant sculpture of a Trumpeter swan & that would indicate to all waterfowl that this was Trumpeter swan territory & that geese would have to go elsewhere to nest… So then what happened is I didn't know how to build a giant outdoor worthy public sculpture that could survive Canada's winter & being near to a marina…So that is how I embarked upon another year long journey to learn how to work in Ferrocement… Ferrocement is basically ferro- or metal, with cement, actually concrete on top…It is actually a pretty-very-totally complicated thing to learn…I loved it…So that is how I came around to working in sculpture again…(It seems to go in cycles…I burn out my painting eyes & then I end up sculpting…The last cycle I was carving alabaster stone with a hammer & chisel…As a potato dumpling child I spent an extensive period of time learning clay & patinas & firing in a kiln at our local highly equipped 'Y"…My mother came from a very serious couple of artist people, Grandpa's work is the founding collection at the Hockey Hall of Fame-see The Turofsky Collection at hhof.com, – & Grandma was a pianist…I inherited her long fingers…I think my brother got her toes…(His walk is that of a musician)…So my whole life I have been funded & encouraged & supported by my family… My husband, Joseph Grove is also an artist…I say "VASE"…VASE stands for Visual Artist Self Employed…neat eh? (I invented that acronym, but you are free to use it…) Our intact lady bengal cats are also very artistic…Bengals are both very good with their hands/paws & are naturally very helpful…So they make perfect artist assistants…They especially help in areas I might forget, like smell…If something doesn't smell right they pooh pooh it…Like the nest…To be honest, the nest design I am on now, number eight, is made of very very lasting material…But the cats aren't crazy about it…They prefer the earlier version made of cheap Sisal rope…It smells better than the polypropylene stuff…The Sisal biodegrades…The poly doesn't…I chose the poly…But I think I am wrong & the cats are right…The cats will sit on the Sisal one…The Poly nest they didn't go for… In the end, the Sisal rope nest is like a million dollars cheaper to make…Harder work for me, but the material is way cheaper…So Joseph will be happier if I make another…It's like 45 dollars compared to 300 dollars…Or 60 to 600, depending on how well I fill in gaps…I need about 750 feet of rope…For one nest…Like a 4 foot diameter that I weave by hand on my hula hoop…I may try using 3/4 inch Sisal rope next time if I can find it…But the cats are right…Biodegradeable is a better choice…Number eight nest ended up as a base for the giant "Swanee" sculpture which sits upon a giant rock near a pond on a 45 acre property which lies on a Trumpeter swan flight path…The public permission process was too much for me, I went private… Funny thing…As soon as the Trumpeter swan sculpture got installed, guess who showed up? The geese…Geese geese & more geese…With goslings…Omigosh goslings are so cute! So much for the territorial thing idea…Wonder when the swans will show up? At any rate, the people love love love the sculpture!!! (& I got about 12 thousand dollars, not including the cost of the nest & installation & all)… Now I am experimenting with making my own cultured marble…You will see some of the early works in the album… Sari Grove July 4th, 2012…

 

Swanee

CUSTOM CONCRETE BY SARI

(at left) "Swanee" (sold) is a 5 foot long, around 100 lbs, of a custom concrete recipe Sari made, on top of 25 feet of rolled & shaped chicken wire, with a couple of coat hangers in the neck part…(armature secrets)

Sari's Custom Concrete mix is:

2 parts white cement to 1 part aggregate:

(that 1 part aggregate is in 4 parts itself- so,

25% Perlite,

25% Aragonite sand,

25% white silica sand,

25% alkaline resistant glass fibres…)

Then 1 part liquid, which is 75% water to 25% latex adhesive (Milk)…

Covered in Eco-House special eco no VOC concrete sealer…

The black bill has added black cement powder paint integrally…

The nest is 750 feet of water-resistant rope woven on a hula hoop by hand…The rock was there already…

began late 2010- done early 2012

 

Hi, I'm Sari…Last name Grove…This site shows some of my works of art, & some of how I do them, & probably some things that aren't really art related, like our bengal cats, but they are, because they bring me joy & that makes my art more joyful…The works here are mostly since 2010 & forward…I take things down from the internet a while after they sell, mostly so whoever bought them gets sort of the privilege of having them, exclusive rights to look at them because they supported me financially…Some of the things here are sold, but still too fresh & I still have this 'show off' desire hanging in…
