Re: The high cost of medical care

Wendy -

I'm sorry you have cancer. I'm glad it was detected and I hope it all works out well for you. You are a treasure to the MACRO board and many other places as well.

Get well,

Re: Dealing with time required to eat healthy

Good idea of the week winner:

Bananas, if you are using them in smoothies, sauteed in butter for a fruit topping/dessert, or for baking banana cake and the like, can be frozen. Just peel them first. Chop ahead if you like too. Lets you [more]

Re: Anyone up for a Revival?

Is anyone interested in reviving this board in the new year for actual encouragement and accountability?

I'm in.

2014 started at 234. Currently 215. Goal is 199

199 has been a goal for far to long now.

Re: blood pressure

If you get lots of exercise, you can eat what you want.

That isn't necessarily true. But it sure does help.

Not being trapped in a cubicle probably helps more.

Long term use of statins might not be good for you.
I'd loose the 10 plus pounds.....

100,000 mile spark plug

I changed my spark plugs and wires after 100,000 miles. They did not look worn at all. A little carbon on the ground electrode. The center electrodes didn't look worn at all.

Pretty amazing. I changed the plugs in my 66 Mustang every 15K and [more]

Why do I ask?

Re: Conservatives may be stupid..but

By the time the electorate smartens up there will be little left to save.

You're over thinking it. Survived 8 years of Bush. Heck, the GOP controlled everything the first tow years of Bush's term. The world didn't quite end.

Re: Lets Try Again, Liberalism Is A Hoax

Nothing more serious than some broken ribs but I believe I've been very lucky. Sticking the front tire of my bike on a rock or tree root has flipped me over at least a half a dozen times.

Re: About 2016..overblown optimism on left

Do you really think there will be annything left of America, as we know it, to be saved.

Probably not. But people have been asking that question for 238 years. From all political spectrums.

Re: Lets Try Again, Liberalism Is A Hoax

What's up Volucris! How's the family? Mine is doing fine. Are you still into outdoor recreation and hang gliding? Trying out the hang gliding thing is still on my bucket list but after I do some parachuting, hopefully this spring.

Re: Conservatives may be stupid..but

The pendulum swings left and right. It swung to the right the last election. It will swing to the left for the next one, or the one after that.
