  • Re: Funny Stuff

    Now that I'm older (but refuse to grow up) here's what I've discovered....

    ONE - I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.

    TWO - My wild oats have turned into prunes and All Bran.

    THREE - I finally got my head together, now my body is falling apart.

    FOUR - Funny, I don't remember being absent minded.

    FIVE - All reports are in, life is now officially unfair.

    SIX - If all is not lost, where is it?

    SEVEN - It is easier to get older than it is to get wiser.

    EIGHT - Some days you are the dog, some days you're the hydrant.

    NINE - I wish the buck stopped here, I sure could use a few.

    TEN - Kids in the back seat cause accidents.

    ELEVEN - Accidents in the back seat cause kids.

    TWELVE - It's hard to make a come back when you haven't been anywhere.

    THIRTEEN - The only time the world beats a path to your door is when you're in the bathroom.

    FOURTEEN - If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    FIFTEEN - When I'm finally holding all the cards, why does everyone decide to play chess?

    SIXTEEN - It's not hard to meet expenses...they're everywhere.

    SEVENTEEN - The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

  • Re: Lone Wolf

    I understand. I'm pretty much the same way. I'm retired now, but when I did work full time, late in my 'career' I started taking lunch breaks in the restroom where they had a small room off to the side with a comfy couch and would simply catnap during lunch or go out to my vehicle and find a shady spot and rest there and listen to the radio sometimes.

  • Re: Coffee ???

    I bought some cacao nibs off amazon earlier today that I wanna try in my coffee (among other things).

    A lady (Kaylah Cupcake) who lost a bunch of weight on youtube swears by erythritol she bought off amazon. She said stevia makes her retch.

  • Re: Buddha's Love

    I think the reason I was so taken by Buddhism is because one of the many books I read when I first had a thirst for more knowledge about Buddhism was Master TNH's biography, Old Path White Clouds. Please, just read it and see what I mean. And I deeply appreciate what @Federica posted above about Jesus. That helps a lot in setting the record straight about the kind of life Jesus led and the romanticizing of him that has been done in modern times.

  • Re: What's the best way to eat healthy?

    @lobster said:
    One of the simplest things is learning to drink herbal teas and hydrating. I do use canned stuff.

    For example baked beans yesterday for breakfast, but I washed the sauce away which is intensified with sugar and salt. Added hot chilli sauce instead. I also eat tinned sardines and tinned chickpeas. As for bags. We can get frozen bags of mixed fruit and also mixed veg which are convenient and yum.

    Good idea to wash the sauce off the beans...I was eyeing a can of them at the store yesterday (didn't buy). Don't know why I hadn't thought of that meself!

    Yes, the right ideas are to up fruit/veggie intake - BUT it's ok to butter them peas. Seriously. Cut back on the processed foods, sodas, juice (I water the juices down by 1/3rd).
