    I was picked for the federal grand jury once. As a matter of fact anyones name that was picked from the "hat" was on it. The judge did care what reasom you gave to not paticipate, he denied them all. It wasn't hard but going once a month for a year was annoying. Thankfully i havn't been called since.

    That's surprising b/c the federal law states that the prosecution and defense both have the right to eliminate jurors to ensure a fair trial. I think each has the right to 3 juror eliminations for any reason. If that wasn't available, the judge or prosecution could stack the jury to ensure conviction of the defendant, which is illegal per the Constitution. Fair trial... Constitutional right for all US Citizens. I think that judge was breaking the law.

    the grand jury dosn't judge innocence/guilt. They determine if there is enough evidence to prosecute.

    A nice night out

    Well, I ate more than I needed, but kept to my plan, and didn't eat anything I didn't bring, or wasn't good for me. So: no gravy, potatoes, carrots, rolls, apple pie, crackers, wine. A fun time hanging out with my friends, with good talk and the right amount of silliness. Got some knitting done, too!

    Unfortunately, the weather has been so mild here, that something is growing that is setting off my allergies, and I started having quite a bit of back-of-the-throat drainage yesterday. I feel very raspy. I started with the hot tea, to keep things cleared out, and I'm going to continue today.

    So, yesterday:

    Up at 5:15
    Weight: 209.0

    12:30 fajita salad again- delicious!

    2:45 1/4C wasabi almonds

    7:00 2 plates of pot roast
    swiss chard-cabbage gratin
    sweet potatoes with onion and bacon

    8:30 2C vanilla cream with a
    a square of dark chocolate

    Walking: 40 minutes
    Water: 12 glasses

    Bed at 11:00

    Today I am going to be working fast and furiously on the mitts for Girlfriend, while also writing out the pattern for the reverse mitt. I disapprove STRONGLY of patterns that simply say, 'work second mitt as first, reversing directions'. Lame. I can figure it out, but that's what the PATTERN is supposed to do!

    Oh, yesterday at the .99 store I got:
    7 bosc pears, 1/2 pound ginger(do you see a detox bath in my plans?), 2 pounds carrots, 4.4 ounces blackberries, and 3 large zucchini for five dollars. I think I could like this.

    I'm seeing them EVERYWHERE, now that I have one. Parked next to an orange one at the post office on Wednesday! I like that green that they come in- reminds me of lizards.

    So lovely that you're driving your new 'soul' around Kidding, glad you have a good new car that you really like. Such a wonderful sense of freedom to be able to go and do the things that need doing! So happy that things are turning around for you! And so glad too that the food is going better and you are back on track. I am proud of you - you have been through a terrible time and now you can breathe again - enjoy!

    It really is fun driving a new car, isn't it? I will admit that I am really, really enjoying mine. After so many years in the old one, it is such a new experience.
