Beth, I would say, simply, if something makes you sick, don't do it. Eat it, I mean. Er,
anyway.... #1 basic rule: If your body doesn't like it, listen to your body. That's the
one rule everyone on this board will advise you to follow. The rest of it is, clearly,
There's a lot of fine lines in the discussion regarding illegal substances. Personal
responsibility is pretty much the only factor in distinguishing safe use and
unsafe use. Knowing you're using an altering substance and driving is
irresponsible and causes untold grief, just look at the drunk driving statistics. On
the other side of the coin, consider the study being done on low-dose psilocybin
and it's healing effects on PTSD sufferers. I've personally had marijuana relieve
serious pain from shingles, but find no benefit from it when I'm not ill or injured.
I haven't read enough about ayahuasca to have any opinion as to it's safety or
efficacy, but I do know LSD carries many dangers. My only wish for anyone
reading this conversation would be to take away this: STUDY. Study anything
you may choose to use exhaustively, discerningly, take nothing as a given or
I actually got a sunburn today, well wind/sun burn, being out in the warm, very windy day for four hours.
It's mild, but it's there! Sorry it's still snowing up in Canoehead Land. Heeheehee..... I think maybe
we should decide as a race, to stop living in places that don't make sense. Like, California. And New
Orleans. And the South Pole.
I typically don't go anywhere I haven't found online as having a gluten free menu.
Then when I arrive, the first person I see gets a big smile and I tell them "I come
for your gluten free food!" And their response determines whether I stay. Then I
ask "Are you super-Celiac-uptight or are you serving the fad diet demographic?"
And they've always answered me quite honestly. Seems to work nicely.
Duck eggs behave pretty much the same way as chicken eggs, when fried
in a pan the whites can be more rubbery-feeling. The yolks are much bigger,
and therefore good for those of us who like their yolks runny! When baking,
if the eggs are VERY big, you may need to add a touch more flour, but that's it.
And HOLY CRAP $2 A DOZEN I HATE YOU!
That's good to hear! The Johnson and Wales graduates I worked with were, frankly, terrifying. That was ten years ago at this point, and I was working with people who were a long time out of school, so the changes in recent years are very promising.
I worked in a hotel that had a restaurant and a major catering operation for the
meeting space in the hotel. I worked with a whole lot of culinary school graduates
who wouldn't know the word 'gluten' if it were the million dollar question on a game
show. Just sayin'. Frustrating that we need such long list of 'parameters' for
where we can eat out, I know.
