Random Thoughts

- Maybe electing someone as a leader of your country because he looks like a hip young black guy wasn't the best idea. Can the new generation of voters differentiate between American Idol and a presidential election - that is the question...

- Why do I really need to know my Bell Pepper came from? I just want it to taste like a pepper and not have to wreck it trying to get the "Costa Rica" label and stickum off the skin. As far as the organic craze, can someone show me an inorganic vegetable??

Stuffed peppers taste good.

not since Nixon's five o'clock shadow versus the clean and charming President Kennedy has political issues been more prevalent than looks alone.

well...duh.

If Cheney had been as much a butt wipe prior to the Gore Bush election I can guarantee you, Bush junior would still be blowing bubbles in his spit (I heard that's what coke sniffers do) and Cheney would have been jailed for shooting his 'friend' in the face.

But the vegetable you speak of is high and coming.
It is the reason folks wanted the info put on the food (mostly, at least) because there's a defiant population that disbelieve that franken-food IS food, or, for that matter, even organic.

The same people who bring you "The World Began 6000 Years Ago" don't want to eat modified dna food, some don't call it food at all (plastic? nylon? rubber?) and were adamnant (no...I didn't spell it wrong) about the stickers on chow.
Of course, some of us are just as happy because while here we allow certain portions of chow to be infused with rats and mice....some of China's foods are infused with dogs and snakes.

Uh, I'll pass on the viper and beagle. Just a bit of mickie mouse for me, eh?

Food stickies are bad. Peeve me too.

Do you ever find baby peppers inside when you cut a big on open? It makes me feel like I've won the lottery.

The market has mistaken wet with fresh. Safeway even has thunder noises before the sprinklers start up and hose down the veggies. On the bright side (for them) the excess water adds to the weight on the downside the shopper winds up with soggy produce. To me if it isn't organic it would infer that it is therefore inorganic, as in a rock.

I would say, most rocks are more organic than most veggies thse days... unless they're of course from a desert where nuclear testing had been done... but you and I both know that sort of thing would never happen...!!!

And I'm proud to announce that I'm one of those who like to know the record of everything - including my veggies, just to be perfectly sure they won't attack my guts with the wrong motivation...!!!

Alright dull-life-guy: the palm-pic is beautiful... but I don't get why you think your so terribly boring?!

Anyway, it was very nice of you to honor the memory of those who were there on D-Day.

One of my husband's uncles was there as well (actually probably more than one, but this one was his favourite uncle...) he kept the engine's running in spite of the incomming fire and managed to evacuate a lot of British troops... mind you he wasn't all too impressed with the American performance that day... things like floating tanks drowned off the coast instead of sailing them close enough so they actually had a chance to reach the shore without the entire crew drowning...

He was so traumatized, he never really liked to talk about it - no medals could make up for that!

Here's something I wrote some time ago, amongst other things thinking about D-day:

It definitely honors the individual soldier and his effords, but emphazizes also the tragic course mankind is on.

I think the food should have a 'date sticker' from when it was picked, I'm sure most of the stuff we buy these days has been in cold storage for months...hence the lack of flavour. ♡
