look - i made a really boring entry look interesting!

how about these gas prices eh?

maybe what this country needs (besides a new energy policy) is a large coalition of consumer owned gas station cooperatives, who buy from the lowest-selling oil companies - and wield enough influence to bring prices down

i heard that road rage in Texas is very low - makes me think twice about Texas - road rage in this region is pretty high.  Maybe Texas drivers are just all happy about their lower gas prices.

And Rockford is top in the state for arresting drunk drivers.  It's also top in the state for having a green energy outlook - which isn't saying much.  It's prolly just because it's closest to Madison.  But another good thing - Rockford is getting the most funds from the Illinois EPA - that means some giant abandoned brown-site industrial buildings downtown by the river can be cleaned up and/or removed, for downtown development.  (That also means that we might be able to develop a water racing course on the river in time to use for the Olympics, if they do come to Chicago).  I have always been a downtown development nut.  I once advised the former mayor to turn one of those industrial buildings into a technology museum/convention center.  Well - why is Rockford getting more IL EPA funds?  Nobody is saying it, but it's because my friend the former mayor is now the head of the IL EPA.

OMG!  Gerry Falwell is dead!!!  May he rest in pieces...

More Rockford promo...  The Chicago-Rockford Airport, which might be chosen as the major diversion for the over-capacity Chicago O'Hare Airport, was voted the best in the state this year.  It is also a major UPS mail hub.  Plus we will be getting passenger rail service to Chicago fairly soon - by hook or by crook.  PLUS we have the new rail/transportation hub in Rochelle, which I believe is the biggest in the nation.  So Rockford quietly Rocks.  Yet it still tries to market itself as the sock-monkey capital of the world.

I had an exhausting day today - but one where I was able to push myself.

Did some cleaning.  Then I took Kurska on the following adventure...

Got free food.  The only good thing they had though was cottage cheese and spaghettios - with TOO MANY meatballs!  They also have too many sweets - but this time it wasn't too bad - M&M Cookies, and candy licorice - which I can melt down and make into a drink, with other stuff I have.  Licorice is good for you, but not all the sugar.  I also have more bread than I can shake a faggot at.

"faggot" - (UK) - "A ball of chopped meat and liver mixed with bread and herbs, eaten fried or baked"

"faggot" - "
A bundle of sticks and branches bound together"

"faggot" - "A Teletubby who was reponsible for 9/11" - Jerry Falwell.

I also dropped off an antique AM/SW radio for a relative, and picked up a care package from another relative.

Bought beer and dog food - supposed to last a while.  At least until the freebie internet dog food shows up and I can make beer from that.

Now I must do more cleaning, and maybe some paperwork.  I should be in good shape tomorrow, so I'll do some mowing.  The grass is going to seed, which the neighbours don't like.  But that's the best way of controlling weeds.

But now there seems to be a cop who moved in down the street and it makes me nervous, plus I have a LOUD car.  But I don't drive it as much because of gas prices.

Solution?  I should make ethenol out of my grass!

Or else beer!

Same difference!

LoLz, when I was little I asked my dad what a faggot was. He told me, "A bundle of sticks". I walked away wondering why kids were calling other kids bundles of sticks on the playground.

RE: Licorice

Re: Licorice

hurray for dark chocolate!

just go low-sugar

and eat fish oil caps to fight the saturated fat

that's exactly what licorice does - and some think that's a health benefit - but i regularly do not

you just have to find your own level of licorice before this happens

licorice has some really helpful chemical in it that's good for a lot of things - but i forgot what all that was - glucosoids or something - google it?

Re: Licorice

You spelt it wrong!

What I must find my own level of licorice? In theory, I eat all the licorice I can in one day and hope I don't end up killing myself over it.

Re: Licorice

did i? - i think i do that a lot - that and raisons

well - yes - but if you want the health benefits you need to space it out over about 50 years - at least by that time you need help with constipation anyway

Re: Licorice

lol. I've started eating a bit more healthy already, I don;t really eat chips these days though. Takeout is a rare thing for me. Although, I do usually have a coffee, once a day.

Re: Licorice

coffe is a god thing - unless you have it too late in the day - 3:pm at the latest

chips are also a good thing! really they are unless you have high B - or they contain MSG, annatto, BHT, or TRANS FATS! - i don't know if Australia has banned trans fats yet - but i would be surprised if they haven't

Re: Licorice

We haven't banned trans fats yet...I don't think so. What it exactly? I know it mainly comes from process meat products, mainly....we've spoke of this beforehand. :P

Re: Licorice

Re: Licorice

"Pure licorice powder", Wouldn't that make you poop alot?

Re: Licorice

well - like the doctor brendan said - eat at your own risk

seriously - yogurt at least is anti-poop, so that prolly helps

then eat plenty of grains and trees and rocks etc.

Re: Licorice

Re: Licorice

on yogurt - you have to check the label - a lot has sugar - sometimes a lot

but some have sorbitol - which is fine

if they have aspartame / nutrisweet or sacherin then that's not so good

PLAIN yogurt has no added nothin - which means you can add your own stuff to it

Re: Licorice

Plain yohurt is too boring for me. Even when I add things; no taste.
