Morning, all good people of the kitchen. Drear beginning weather-wise to the day yesterday turned into a reasonable one, another overcast start today, but they say sunshine is on its way. Must be a rule of English weather that we have to have some rain on a Bank Holiday weekend when people want to get away to the West Country!
One of my clients took six hours to travel from the Midlands to Plymouth on Friday - for our US friends, it's a distance of approx. 170 miles! The motorways gridlock on Bank Holidays - I never drive on those weekends.
I can't believe those little cars pull trailers on the weekend

Wow! Thanks El. I know it's been suggested cinnamon also helps type 2 diabetics maintain blood sugar levels.

I'm insulin dependent. My doctor feels that as long as the supplements don't hurt, why not give it a try.

Good morning Mighty Quinn. I hope your weekend is going great. It has warmed up again so maybe I have had the last fire in the fireplace :) Is it still cold where you are?

Prety much but I just have an open house for 2 hours. My big push has changed. I got 40,000 business cards and I try to put out 3,000 to 4,000. My cards have Free iPad in big red letters. I will go to a mall parking lot and put the card on the drivers window. I have watched and they don't throw away my card so it is the law of large numbers :)

I do open houses in Builders spec's so I am talking to buyers. I also put my cards on windows parked in front of builders model's. That is 4,000 a month :)

El, Grace, Denny, Quinn, Pfft, Shilo, Rick from MD, Sebastian's mom, DEennis Farina, happeeeeeeeeeeeeeee SINday.(El, the boys have disabilities, the older one, Nick, not as bad. Blake is on medication, seeing a psychiatrist.) Update was they tried to see if June would breathe on her own and she did but they strongly believe there is no brain activity. They are waiting to give her that test. June and Linda's mother, also to blame for June's situation, the mother was always supplying her with prescription pills that was given to her. All I can say? June was an absolute beauty. Best looking in the family, the others, barely passable. I think Nick is 11? Poor Linda, her own son died of Cystic Fibrosis when he was around 12, and she adopted these two boys. As for me, I will be working today from 12 to 6, but wanted to give you an update. El, better go and get those eyes tested. Never fool with something so precious. Now if your problem is that you see naked men, dont get them checked. ha ha ha ha ha.

Spring is finally moving in up here. Been in the 60s and 70s. Patio furniture is out and will start planting veggies in the coming weeks.

Keeps you busy and off the streets;-)

With mortgage regs getting overhauled in Jan 2014 there may be big drop in who qualifies for loans. I'm reviewing the regs now to implant plans for compliance.

El, June is gone. They removed her from the respirator. Such a damn waste. Nicholas was hell bent on seeing her and then refused to go in. I am glad. No child should have to keep a memory like that. I am glad that Blake never knew that she was his mother.

They are treating her death as a homicide. More to follow.

Morning Franko. In my opinion and my opinion only, the bible is just a book, a very popular one obviously, but it's just a book. It could leave more questions than it answers as a means of control - only the priest can interpret or unstand it.
I no longer subscribe to that which I was raised with as far as Catholicism goes. That doesn't mean I don't believe in something larger than myself who/which created all if this. I guess I fall in with the agnostics. But I still don't think the bible is anything more than just a book.
I have some friends very devout in their Christian faith and we have reasonable conversations about our beliefs. Conversations, not heated arguments.
Again I point out that I do wish to start an argument with anyone. This is my opinion, my belief and do not wish to impose it on anyone. I do not criticize others beliefs. I merely shared my own.
My thinking falls into line pretty closely to your on that matter. I was not raised in a religious environment though, so my learning has been bits and pieces over the years.

If you do believe that the bible was purposely written in an ambigious manner for the purposes you say, then it brings up an interesting point....

People often seem to think that humans were not all that smart 2000 years ago, and that we have progressed and become more intelligent over these past 20 or 30 centuries. However, if someone could write such a book with such a design and purpose in mind so long ago then perhaps humans were actually quite intelligent back then ... all they lacked was knowledge which had to be not just learned, but discovered from scratch, and then over a long period of time passed on through generations to ammass the current amount of knowledge mankind has collected up to now.

Interesting also to think that human progress and learning may have actuall been faster had it not been for the religious doctrine which caused people to not be open to new ideas. consider that Galilieo was jailed because of his ideas.

The Romans and Egyptians were engineering geniuses way ahead of their time. Slave labor certainly built the pyramids --- also not a new phenomena. That's not an acceptance of it, merely a pint of fact.
