Thanks Trevor, may you remain healthy and live a long life. I didn't understand the thumbs down either. I had eaten those salads many times without checking, so now I check the sodium in any processed foods I'm thinking about buying.

"Smith, however, walked free in 2009 after his accuser recanted her statement, prompting an appellate court to acquit him." While not true in Pemberton's case (may he get what he deserves), it happens a lot more than you'd think. In the early 90's, I helped investigate a case in Korea where a woman claimed she was raped by a marine because he took his money back afterward.

"This means we may some day be able to control crop destroying and disease carrying pests cheaply, easily,..." How are you gonna do that, light up millions of acres of farmland? And how could you do that cheaply?

I was told the family has to pay for cleanup in these cases, is that true? What about the poor fellows who have to do it? I witnessed part of the "recovery" after a guy fell off the platform. Up went the blue tarps, but there was no hiding the stretcher as it was carried up the stairs.

I try to be careful about sodium intake. I was surprised when I recently checked the sodium in 7/11's pasta salad ('bout 300 yen) they have an entire day's worth! Opted for something else with 1/3 the sodium.

I couldn't have said it better myself.
Posted in: I have no expectations from politics. Politicians are always saying only good things but my life is not improving. I came here only because I wanted to do my duty as a citizen.

I never said there's anything bad about being gay, my son is and I love and support him. I also enjoy friendship with a few gays. What I have a problem with is people who tell me they have no choice. I'm not talking about personalities, or colorful behavior (which I think make the world a more interesting place).

I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't know about this and happens to be walking by when it activates. Gonna need some new undies.

Raise awareness of what, that there are gays and lesbians? We knew that already.

This was the first time I finished all of my Christmas shopping in one trip. Like paulinusa said, preparation was key. I sat down and planned what I wanted to get for each person. Then I picked a day when I could do it alone, no wife or grandkids. It was middle of the week and early in the day so I was almost the only person there, no crowds and no lines at the register. Don't know why I didn't do that before.
