Re: Cut salt, reduce deaths

Salt by itself is probably not the problem in America. The problem is probably the food items (potato chips, french fries) the salt is typically attached to in the US.

I've been seeing cardiologists since I was 28 years old, and none of them [more]

Re: how to store home-made vinaigrette dressing

But this does say that salt is a good preservative (and I put salt in my dressing)

Salt as a preservative usually requires a specific amount to retard bacterial growth.

Another option I've seen with chefs - if you don't want [more]

Re: how to store home-made vinaigrette dressing

I also add a clove of freshly crushed garlic.

And if there's any left over, I put it in a very small jar and leave it on the counter.


You have to be careful with garlic in oil because of clostridium botulinu.

Re: How do animals choose?

The dog is wanting to hang out with the person perceived as more part of the pack. This doesn't mean you are 'disliked' in anyway, but something about the way your wife runs the house is easier for the dog to fit into.

Re: Do corporations pays their share?

They also want all "their" benefits they think they are entitled too even though SS and Medicare they only paid one half. Isn't that rather odd that the whole entitlement/benefit is THEIRS yet they only pay half?

Re: How much will being a grandmother...

but I doubt her running mate will matter. Biden was the dumbest man in the Senate and came from a State with three electoral votes, all of which were already Democrat. Cheney brought Bush the Wyoming votes (wow) and Dan Quayle, well...he's [more]

Re: tattoos are for self esteem issues

Tattoos promise to make you attractive, as if you have a personal force akin to gravity. Notice me.

Wouldn't that then have to be only tattoos that are seen and not hidden by clothing from casual observers?

Re: YOUR WARMING WORLD

I have to say, I'm kind of unmotivated by global warming. I don't fear for the Earth - scientists say there's been 5 mass life-extinctions since the Earth formed. Which leads me to believe, there will probably be another some time in the future. Do [more]

Re: How much will being a grandmother...

I could see it hurting only because the age issue hurt McCain. Now maybe it won't hurt her as much because women tend to live longer than men, but the "grandma" notation does tend to make women seem older.

So, since I want to see [more]

Re: How do animals choose?

Dogs usually see 1 person as the "alpha". If she's stricter and does the feedings, those things probably help to why your dog would view her as the alpha.

Re: how to store home-made vinaigrette dressing

I make about a week's worth, put it in a hermetic seal jar, and keep it on the countertop.

Equal parts balsamic vinegar and spanish extra-virgin olive oil
pinch of kosher salt

Re: Alternative LBYM discussion

Re: oven issue

There's an ignitor that maybe malfunctioned, but also where the gas blows out of is a valve, and they get build up that can be cleaned off to temporarily resolve the issue, but eventually need replacement.

Re: Degrasse-Tyson tells it like it is

Of course, racists can be any color.

It's typically not see as "racism" if it's about social norms within one's group. And within a group it's not blatant like "you can't do that because of your race" - it's more [more]

Re: Does Anybody Really?

From the series of posts, it appears you are judging people by what they own without any background on their means. You live in a double-wide and anyone living better must be stretching it.

Re: Housing

I disagree with this. Sometimes the cost simply isn't worth it.

It is to the person who wants it enough.

Re: A Palestinisn speaks

He managed to bat .666 with one quote. Give him one more time at the plate and I'm sure he'll offend Muslims, too.
