Anyone who speaks English is treated like a celebrity! People heard us talking as we walked on the street and would stop and use the few phrases of English that they knew, ask to take a photo with us, and were so kind. It was great to be in a country that actually loves Americans. <BR> <BR> Wed, 16 Jul 2014 11:38:03 EST When Your Camel Is Tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5632414 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/9/l1903142154.jpg"> Mon, 24 Feb 2014 10:54:20 EST Gnarly http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5621275 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/5/l1562455963.jpg"> Tue, 11 Feb 2014 11:22:41 EST Left Brain, Right Brain http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5619437 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/8/l787686719.jpg"> Sun, 9 Feb 2014 12:46:50 EST Good Choices to a New Me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5614942 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1178402477.jpg"> Tue, 4 Feb 2014 12:10:37 EST Just Thinking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5614003 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/9/l199534683.jpg"> Mon, 3 Feb 2014 12:28:12 EST Grammatically Ungood http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5610196 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/2/l1239443882.jpg"> Thu, 30 Jan 2014 12:08:01 EST Sometimes I Feel This Way http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5608133 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/2/l1202186667.jpg"> Tue, 28 Jan 2014 11:19:57 EST Salt, Sugar Fat http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5607089 Found this book by Michael Moss at the local library. Had to wait to check it out, but it is worth it! He tells how the major food manufacturers [many owned by tobacco companies!] gang up on Americans to make it easy to make bad food choices and brain wash us to do that from childhood with advertising. It makes their profits go up--and our weight goes up too. <BR> <BR> Makes me mad enough to change some of my bad food choices. Makes me take a whole different look at the grocery store shelves...

All the highlighted hypertext words in the health articles take you to ads, not info on the word highlighted. <BR> <BR> My pop up blocker is very effective, but these ads pop up when the cursor happens on their territory on the page. In reading about rheumatoid arthritis, the word health took me to a sudafed ad, another word took me to an ad for Pearle Vision. The imbedded video ads are even worse if your cursor strays over them....
