nice to hear more from you.

That's okay but if I had one wish free, I would ask you for bringing
not only the counter-examples but also the examples themselves,
especially your own experience which was 7 or 8 years, IIRC.

Hm, "temporary" is a relative thing. If you extend it long enough you
might find 100% failing instinctos because they died finally! :-)

May I print this out and hang it on my wall? :-)

I can see your concern. Okay - maybe I should bring the examples and
part would be the counter-examples. Like we have done it in the past
without making a devilish contract about it. ;-) :-)

Maybe I didn't get the timeline right with you. There was a point when
Melisa left instincto, gave birth to a beautiful daughter, IIRC and
after a while you followed her (nutritionwise of course ;-) ).

Given your enthusiasm at the beginning of instincto - well even
for 7 years or so, I thought you might have run into just this
reaction. Is this even remotely plausable as a minor percentage possi-
Have a good paleo time,
