    True!
    My youngest son's school (well, all 3 sons went there, youngest is the only one there now for another year) is making a nice brochure to distribute in our town and they were selling publicity spaces in the brochure. I bought the smallest space (68 x 90 mm or 2.67 x 3.54 inch) and pay 170 euro (+/- 225 USD) for it! But I'm looking forward to see my logo in that brochure (it'll be distributed at the end of January).

    [ranting mode ON]
    OMG, there's an article in a newspaper today (a rather "decent" newspaper, if such thing exists) heading:"'Dishes made by Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawson more unhealthy than processed microwave meals' *toink*!
    An English professor specialised in public health has compared the recipes from the cookbooks of these cooks, made from fresh produce and real butter with processed microwave meals; and although the processed meals cannot be called healthy, he says the "real homemade" meals are MORE UNHEALTHY because they have MORE protein and saturated fat and LESS fiber. AAAAAHHHHHHH!!! The article continues to say that also the recipes of a locally famous TV-cook in Belgium have the same problem. Because his recipes were examined...pay attention now....by communicationspecialsts of a Belgian university. Communication.specialist. Since when do they know ANYTHING about healthy food?
    *running around screaming*. I've been ranting all over facebook and twitter and now posted links to both Sugar: the bitter truth and The Skinny on Obesity . Mannnn, how is this possible??? Why do they insist butter is BAD, even WORSE than transfat and sugar put together?????
    [rant OFF] (me hopes, this is bad for my heart....I think I should go bake some eggs in butter and top them with fleur de sel de guérande, that would send any doctor in a rant ).

    ROFL!!!! Tolkien rips off Harry Potter... Too, too funny.

    As for the dumb article about food, I just quit reading things like that. Life is too short.

    Oh that is hilarious - Tolkien rips off Harry Potter! LOL, how embarrassing for that person once they realise the truth - better to do your research before opening your mouth! And yes Candy, don't read too much of the 'junk' out there - people are often determined to be believers of untruth and nothing we can say will help them. Not that we shouldn't say something, just try not to get too worked up about it.

    And that is exciting about the booth you are going to have! I hope it really pays off...

    On the magnesium, I use a gel called Ancient Minerals that I rub onto my legs and/or arms about 10 minutes before taking a shower. It has helped a LOT with the cramps... If you look on Amazon.com you can see what it is like, not sure if you have it available there. But a little bit goes a long way - I am still on my first tube of it, though I should probably do it more than I do.

    WOW! Funny thing, I was reading this as I'm watching LOTR! Read it to my husband and we both had a laugh.

    I use the Ancient Minereals oil too. Never tried the gel, may have to look into it. The oil sometimes make me itchy and feel like I have terribly dry skin. Does the gel absorb quickly?

    KimT, I read that it the magnesium makes your skin itch/crawl, your skin is too sensitive for topical use. I assume you're using topical b/c digestive forms are bothersome?

    Hi Candy. Those kinds of articles make me so frustrated that I don't read them anymore. It's too stupid and too frustrating (for lack of a better word). Let the non-believers non-believe while we enjoy our bacon guilt free and live longer than them.
