A real bad flu epidemic all around us. I have had my shot. I just took the last of my antibiotics.

This is not a good time to be thinking about dropping weight Denny,
you need to put your immediate health first. You can always take a spoonful of honey on it's own if you prefer though. Up to you, but it
does have healing properties.

I had this a month ago and I got it again. Now are your pancakes heavy or more like crepes? Our friends in Brighton think they make pancakes but to us they are crepes

Your illness has not diminished your sense of humor! LOL!
Have some tea with lemon and a shot of an adult beverage. Then a little nap, some broth and more beverage.
Hope you and the family feel better.

<quoted text>Neat. I didn't know that. I hope you are having a great Sunday, Any plans for the day? I do enjoy our conversations and love to disagree with you :) Have you always lived in Illinois ? I can't believe how much different areas have different ideas. We are so very conservative in Texas. Everywhere but Austin and that is where we keep our liberals :)
I think Indiana is supposed to be pretty conservative too. I find that funny because there are more adult book stores, casinos and strip clubs over the border than are in Illinois.

I am born and raised in Chicago and only moved just outside the city limits when I got married. Mom and my aunts and uncles were quite conservative in their beliefs, democrats in politics, prejudiced to the hilt. When I was in college and a little older she would call me a liberal and think it was an insult.

What has always boggled my mind is prejudice and intolerance. Texas still has sodomy laws on the books doesn't it? Not everyone believes the bible is "The Book". I don't mean that to offend --- my mother was raised in Pre-Vatican II times (don't recall if you're Catholic). The point is simply that I don't see how anyone can think its ok to own people, I don't understand how people can get all hot & bothered over two men or two women wanting to get married or if two people live together and raise a family without getting married. It's no one else's business and it not "special rights" it's fundamental human rights. There are old survey plats from Chicago that specifically say the property cannot be sold to a colored man.

If a black man/woman has the money are you not gonna close the deal and sell them the house?

Those things make no reasonable sense to me. If I were of age during the civil rights movement I would have gone and followed Martin Luther King.

It was definitely a major devastating event that affected more than just Americans. There is no question there were people from all over the world in New York and at the World Trade Center when the planes hit. Pretty much everyone remembers where they were.

We were vacationing there the month before to celebrate my birthday.

Thank you :)

There is whole controversy and debate within the deaf community whether to implant or not; assimilate or not. The thing for me and folks like me, I am not 'of the deaf world/community' and sometimes it's hard to fit into the hearing community. We took a sign language class before my surgery but no one else in my circle signs. The issue will always be your ability to communicate with me if my processor goes out.

You just need to reduce the carbs not eliminate them. And too much protein is not good for your heart/kidneys.

As a diabetic I have bee listening to this schpiel for 14 years ----- South Beach diet as my doc recommended. Up the good fats and good carbs & decrease the bad fats and bad carbs.

I realize I'm the non drinker here, not that I care who imbibes, but our dear Denny us on meds is it wise to suggest he partake of an adult beverage?

There are all kinds of conservatives. I am a libertarian so I don't care what people do as long as no one is hurt by it. I don't care who people have sex with but I don't think gays have the right to change the very definition of marriage. I think gays should have all the rights anyone has and they do. We probably still have a lot of the same sort of laws and covenants on the books but they aren't enforceable. I have always thought it was funny about the stereotype of the south being racist. Like ML King said no one ever threw a brick at me until I went to Chicago :)

My grand kids can sign :)I have had a little contact with the deaf community. Once they trust you they are good about bringing their other deaf friends to do business with you.

I try not to eat any carbs but you just can't do that. I had lost 65 pounds a few years back and I have put on 20 which I need to take back off

Who defines marriage? Who defines family? Why shouldn't same sex spouses have the same rights as opposite sex spouses? Illinois may sanction civil unions but the federal Defense of Marriage Act prevents same sex spouses from having ER access to their loved ones and host of other things you and your wife take fir granted. Why?

Seriously. Why? It's not special rights. Special 'rights' are designated parking spaces for pregnant women. If the church does not want to officiate so be it, but legally it is still a marriage and should enjoy the same things as any other married couple.

However, don't compare civil rights to gay rights! Everyone can see you are black; not everyone can see you are gay!

Dearest Cuz, it was assuredly long ago (3 years in Topix time is a very long time indeed!). And emphasizes that I'm been visiting your Kitchen since likely before Feb.'10, a significant piece of my time on Offbeat that goes back to Autumn '08.

"Time flies" :)

Are you in contact with Steve U.K.? He may have given a holiday greeting but I don't recall that. Hope all is great with him.

Was I remiss? Is that my fault not Denny's? People in media say gays want special rights. They don't want anything more or less than what the rest of us have....and why shouldn't they have it?

D & I were talking liberal v conservative & I said I'm liberal. Had I been alive at at the time I would fought in the civil rights marches.

Blacks & gays fought and died along side you fighting for the same things you did, why shouldn't they enjoy the same rights you do?
