I知 one of that rare breed: a native Floridian still living in Florida.

I知 a retired vet tech so I love nature: animals, oceans, beaches, forests, sailing; I also enjoy reading (a variety of genres but) mostly fantasy and nonfiction. Language and words are a joy to me, along with philosophy, theology, architecture, and arts in general. Personality typing (ie, Myers-Briggs) interests me (I知 INTx).

I知 one of that rare breed: a native Floridian still living in Florida.

I知 a retired vet tech so I love nature: animals, oceans, beaches, forests, sailing; I also enjoy reading (a variety of genres but) mostly fantasy and nonfiction. Language and words are a joy to me, along with philosophy, theology, architecture, and arts in general. Personality typing (ie, Myers-Briggs) interests me (I知 INTx). And my DH of 37 years and I both enjoy model trains and our marine aquariums, and traveling around the state and lower southeast whenever possible.

I have a positive outlook, and am an inquisitive skeptic. I am spiritual but non-religious, and if pressed for a label would have to call myself eclectic pagan, leaning toward Druidism at the moment. When Christianity 吐ailed for me, I went on a search and have investigated a variety of other religions and cultural wisdoms, gleaning those which resonated with me and ignoring those which don稚.

I知 hoping to connect with others with similar goals, obstacles, and interests, and to encourage others to try the low-carb lifestyle. It痴 an uphill battle, since our government and big-ag still have great influence on our nutritional recommendations. It痴 why we致e gotten in the health and nutrition fix we池e in now. It hurts me to see so many people on so many diet and nutrition sites struggling so hard and trying to do the 途ight thing and quoting all the wrong protocols: calorie-counting, eliminating any fat from their diets, "healthy grains", doing extreme or at least very strenuous exercise and still unable to reach their weight or health goals. They assume they池e not doing 兎nough, or not trying hard enough, and beating themselves up because it isn稚 working. Well, it isn稚 working because -IT- doesn稚 work! Not because of any personal failure! I would like to try to break that cycle.

Thanks for the info about the meteor shower in the fall. I heard one in December was supposed to be pretty good. I'll look it up. Thanks. I wish I knew when my husband and I saw that crazy one we saw. It was amazing. Tons of meteors. emoticon

Thank you for the tip about the pumpkin pie spice in the applesauce, sounds good!

I have thought about warm applesauce on ice cream too!

OMG! I'm the absolute QUEEN of putting of housework. You ain't seen nothing!

We are (all) part...of it. It isn't "for" us, nor us "for" it. We are simply a bit of chaff in the wind....

Your post on the Senegalese poem is wonderful.

With palms joined,
Maha

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Atkins says that you should count 1 gram of carbs for each Splenda packet because of the fillers. I try to stay under 25 grams of carbs per day, so every carb counts! That's why I switched to the EZSweetz. I also use the water additives. Propel is my favorite and it's got lots of B vitamins.
