        Yes, you are so bad! Two second time-out for you. And a *kiss.* Your hair smells really good...

        GotD: people who don't know the difference between "loose" and "lose". That mistake ranks along with their/they're/there and putting the apostrophe in the wrong place for possesive vs. plural. When I see a thread with the title "why aren't I loosing", I don't even bother to take a look. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE YOU CAN'T SPELL!

        I admit, I'm a spelling/punctuation geek.

        Thanks, I feel much better now!
        Not a prob. Mine is "I need some advise." Really? because you really need to go back to skool. Sometimes I check to see if the OP is from another country (and I don't mean Canada or the UK) because I can forgive the whole ESL issue.

        Take some Milk Thistle for your liver--it will help with the hangover and just plain make you feel better. As far as that "other" thread where some zealots took over... You took too many low blows from those guys. Whatever I think of their ideas, I'm with you. And I suspect a lot more of us are than spoke up.

        re the lose/loose thing, Goldie--YEAH! I hate it too!
        Hi DrJ. I do take the Milk Thistle as a supplement almost every day. I think my liver was just out of practice. Or maybe it was the "better" vodka because the rotgut rarely takes me to a bad place the next day.

        No zealots here. Well maybe a few. Or as they say, "a frakkin' million. Or two."

        Man, this journal is dusty... I must run the vacuum and catch up.

                      Never would abandon y'all. Too many love muffins around here. And they still outnumber the maggots.

                      • I feel like I went to bed on Labor Day and woke up on Christmas! Lots of Joanie presents to open and enjoy!

                        Newbys coming to the Forum now have to be so confused. Anyone that actually tries to give them straight from the book PBP advice(not advise) is branded a zealot and mocked. Pretty sad.

                        I think if we spent more on teaching people how to urban farm, set up community gardens on vacant lots, especially in blighted areas and spent less on shiny new spy equipment, we would be better off. While I am pretty conservative about some things, feeding people and caring for those who, for various reasons, can not care for themselves is just the right thing to do. No person should go to bed hungry.

                        Of course as I get older, I am becoming far more liberal about certain things in life as they are not as black and white as I thought they were when I was younger.

                          V, you're so sweet.

                          I love the idea of urban farming. Someone told me that Oregon had passed a backyard farming law, but I googled it and can't find it. Perhaps it's still in the works.

                          I recently learned the term "food deserts," which I never really thought about too much. I mean I know that there are neighborhoods that only have access to convenience stores, but it never really hit home how that might affect the truly poor. In a lot of cities, you can get to a decent grocery store by bus, but in really large cities, that might be tougher.

                          I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before. You can't buy prepared (which apparently means heated) foods with foodstamps. Some guy in Eugene, OR was selling heated food to people for foodstamps and got hit with a hefty fine. His solution was to put out a free microwave for all customers to use so that anything he sold that required heat could be heated by the stamp recipients. Also, a few stores sell uncooked pizzas for one price then add 50c-$1 to heat them. So you can buy the pizza with foodstamps, then pay with currency for the cooking of the product. I haven't seen anyone doing that here in N'Orleans, but once someone figures it out, I'm sure a few will follow. I know why the rules exist, but for the worst off, it can truly hurt. I think fines should be for stores that sell things like alcohol for foodstamps. Better to word the rule that you can't buy restaurant food than to disallow heat.

                          • When I was still working and living in Sacramento, I worked in a lot of neighborhoods that had a liquor/convenience stores on every block but no real grocery stores with fresh food. The bus system there sucked and the trains were not in the poorer areas for the most part so it was really hard for people to get fresh foods. I couldn't really blame many of them for not eating healthy. Unfortunately, it was also really hard to do urban farms there because of the zoning laws. Things were getting a little better when we moved as they were finally allowing laying hens.

                            I think things here in the Bay Area are a little better as the public transit is better for the most part. I have to admit that I do not spend much time in many of the inner city areas and usually I drive through Oakland as quickly as possible to get to Berkley, but I see more small grocers here. There are a lot more farmer's markets here, scattered through out the urban areas and most take food stamps. I feel pretty lucky as we have about 15 grocery stores or more within a five mile radius, including a Whole Foods, TJ, and several local markets that sell a lot of locally sourced foods. One is even in walking distance if I had too but I am a delicate flower. Plus all of the old/teenage drivers in my neighborhood scare the crap out of me since we have no sidewalks!

                            All your talk of Tarot cards have me thinking I need to do a little reading online about it. I love learning something new!

                              (Don't tell the paleo police), but after I exercise, I take some of this whey, just to get some quick protein in, not sure if you can get it, or would want to, but yer right a burgers much tastier....

                              I thought we had some strange laws over here, oh we do, but fair play you do alright over there....

                                I lived in San Francisco from 1974 to 1988. The thing is my life is so different now. I remember the Marina Safeway as one of the only "real" grocery stores. But for the most part, being a student, and then having a real full-time salary, I ate take-out. It was so long ago that you could get a big order of something like pork fried rice rice for about $2, and burritos the size of your head were about $3.50. There was a little Mexican grocery store when I lived in the Mission. I couldn't afford to live there now. In fact, from what I've seen, I wouldn't even recognize most of it.

                                I think Aeclectic (the link in Sunday's post) has an online tarot deck you can use for free. If you decide to buy a physical one to learn the symbolism, I'd go with a Rider deck first. Once you have those pictures in your mind, then if you buy a deck like a Vampire or Fairy Tarot, you'll know the meaning of the cards even if the art doesn't show all the little things. It's fun.

                                No paleo police w/out a warrant. Mums the word.

                                Sometimes when I'm posting the news I leave the big stuff out because it's just so depressing or political and I don't want to get people sad or riled up.
