My wife bought me Julia Child's book this last week for my birthday. I sat and salivated all weekend looing at recipes. The Beef Burgundy makes my mouth happy thinking about it. I'm going to go through and cook a recipe once a month. One of the critiques of the book is the amount of butter and cream...

Water is overrated. I prefer Coca Cola...oh, wait??? But I do.

At www.quackwatch.org they delve into the urban myth o...

I am happy today...

Got both credit cards paid off, completely! One bank started with the, "Well sir you aren't the primary card holder..." I asked the friendly lady if she wanted the money or not. Got it paid!

Next is the $5000 hospital bill. That happens Monday.

This is true confession. I had read about a "tuna fast" (eat nothing but tuna, and drink water) on a bodybuilding board probably when the internet first started. So how long ago was this? 1994? 1995? So, I gave it a whirl. People were drinking "tuna shakes", (I couldn't have made that up if I'd want...

Technically, yes. But I think "flexitarian" implies that one is eating more plant foods and fewer animal foods.
