Re: Eurobuzz

FWIW, I called our friends in Berlin last weekend from our home phone. $26 for a short call.


I need to call Austria or the UK once in a while, so I added an international calling feature on my AT&T cell plan for $5 a [more]

Re: Eurobuzz

I must be missing something - the phones aren't free plus .79/minute. I have Verizon because of the places I go in the US where it's the one with coverage. I just added a global option for $30/month which I will change back(going to the UK for a [more]

I'm surprised that these practices aren't already illegal.

Re: Fighting....

Quitting smoking was easy. Not this. This is hard.

Let's just all be upbeat. Let's whistle a happy tune. Take a walk. Or the thing that makes me cringe the most: JOIN something.

Let's just DECIDE to be happy.

Re: Coyotes

When we first moved here, we were on the edge of town. We had lots of wildlife just a few blocks from our house. It was fun watching the quail and rabbits when we were walking the dogs.

We only saw the coyotes on our street a few times, but [more]

Re: Coyotes

When we parked the car tonight, (10:45) we could hear coyotes in Friendship Park, which is maybe a little over ½ mile away (and uphill) as the crow flies. Also across Western avenue, a busy thoroughfare. A coyote might make it across the street, [more]

Re: Fish and Diabetes

I didn't realize that he mentioned anything about radiation in the video I posted. I have to be honest and say that I tried watching the videos as I was cooking so I was jumping up and down taking care of food on the stove at the same time I was [more]

I watched his video on "Fukushima and Radioactivity in Seafood".

I thought it was horrible. He used half-truths, innuendo and quoted very questionable research studies. One even said that no causal relationship had [more]

Re: Preventing Diabetes

I have the idea (I won't dignify it by calling it a theory, or even a postulate) that different people's digestive tracts process the food intake differently. I think my digestive tract is not as efficient as, say, the Countess's. I eat more than [more]

Re: Preventing Diabetes

Thanks for the link, AM.

I backed it up to the recommendations, which are really pretty modest:

Weight reduction > 5%
Fat intake < 30% of energy intake
Saturated fat intake < 10% of energy intake

Re: Sometimes I Wonder....

My Daddy (the old Count) taught me to use the hand brake to keep the car from rolling backward until the clutch began to engage to move the car forward. Works like a charm.

Re: Sometimes I Wonder....

Got on a road there once that, I swear I'm not lying, went damned near straight down. I was terrified that we were going to slam into the car in front of us at the red light. The most harrowing thing imaginable. Pooey. They can keep it. And the [more]

Re: Sometimes I Wonder....

So we loaded everything up and moved to sunny California. Since we still had a house in WA we couldn't really afford to buy a house here (although we actually did make an offer on one house that was poo-pooed by the owner and which I'm very glad [more]

Grue, I assume you are watching (or familiar with) the TV series. Do you know if the story line is basically correct? (Rivalry between the Implosion and the rail gun teams.) Who was the real Frank Winter?

This, my work situation(which isn't good), and my heart attack have made this a pretty crappy year.

Re: Height to Weight Charts

I don't even see how they can figure it at all.
Some people have a lot of muscle - not fat.
But they weigh more because of the muscle.


The best way to do it is to measure percent body fat, but I don't think you can do that [more]
