Gordon,

Keep an eye on that brand and container type and size and see if all of them
have far-away expiration dates. Let us know what you find.

They do in my local store. As I said, Kroger is using the expire date as a selling point.

I find it amazing that you can print so much details of the product on the package understable to most people.
But giving a date format understable to most people when the product is going bad seems to be impossible.
Because there are so many variables once it leaves the manufacturers warehouse ...

I've seen milk that has sell dates several months out before. IIRC they called it "ultra-pasturized". Only have seen it in bottles with heat seals. Never cartons.

Kroger is now using the sell by date of its milk as a selling point.

Of course the only good milk is still warm from the udder, but that can't be sold!

3 air marshals on board and terrorism?

Did they have specific info on this flight? Why 3? Don't they usually work alone?

If you life long enough you will get diabetes. Same with cataracts. It comes with age.

I have three aunts age 80 - 90, one on my mom's side, one on my dad's side and one by marriage. All three access medical care well and have blood draws as recommended by their physicians. None of these three aunts has diabetes. None is even close to developing any sort of insulin resistance. All three have maintained normal weights across their lives.

I would amend what Gary says as follows: "If you live long enough and struggle with weight management, you will get diabetes."

Ask again at age 120.

How much protein should you eat? We recommend that 40 percent of your calories should be carbohydrate, and in the next section, we suggest that you limit your fat intake to 30 percent of your calories. The remaining 30 percent is protein.

Most foods don’t contain much cholesterol — with the exception of eggs. The daily recommendation for cholesterol is less than 300 milligrams, and one egg almost reaches that level. Some doctors say that eating an egg two or three times a week won’t hurt you, but this isn’t true if you have diabetes. Avoid eggs and foods such as organ meats that are high in cholesterol, or use egg substitutes instead.

Please see your Dr./dietitian/nutritionist to get specific recommendations for you, not in general. Atkins was written for normal otherwise healthy people, not specifically diabetics, who frequently have other conditions as well. You personal Dr./dietitian/nutritionist will have your cholesterol readings, blood pressure, kidney function and other tests. They will take these into consideration in telling you want things to avoid, what you can binge on, and how many carbs a meal/day you should consume.

I'll say it again: Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control.

It isn't that you can't have something, it is that you must limit how much of it you have and compensate what other things you have to adjust.

So if you have a bowl of ice cream, that might be all you can have and you will have to spend a bit of time exercising after. But you might be able to eat an entire head of celery and not worry at all*.

Oh, I see you are retired, so I'm sure you have type 2, and the late in life type. note to all: If you life long enough you will get diabetes. Same with cataracts. It comes with age.

A personal observation, avoid diet soda. Most have an aftertaste that will make you hungry, and that is a bad thing! Never mind the acid they contain that will eat at your teeth. If you crave the caffeine, try tea, otherwise water and nothing is less expensive.

Now we know who Drumpf runs to ...
https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2016/05/17/council-national-policy-behind-curtain
The Council for National Policy (CNP) is, in the words of The New York Times, “a little-known club of a few hundred of the most powerful conservatives in the country,” an organization so tight-lipped that it tells its people not to admit membership or even name the group. It is important enough that last fall, according to an account in The National Review, Donald Trump and five other Republican presidential candidates each took 30 minutes to address the group; the conservative journal reported that Trump was by far the favorite candidate.
...
But it has long been known that the group included some key individuals whose goals are less benevolent. One of its five founders, Tim LaHaye, is the co-author of the Left Behind series of apocalyptic Christian novels and a man who has described gay people as “vile,” said the Illuminati are conspiring to establish a “new world order,” attacked Catholicism, and once worked for the wildly conspiracist John Birch Society. An important member whose name was revealed early on was John Rousas Rushdoony, who is listed in the 2014 directory’s “In Memoriam” section and advocated for a society ruled by Old Testament law requiring, among other things, the stoning of adulteresses, idolaters and “incorrigible” children.

Sorry to report that Drumpf draws support from ISIL like followers.

Please take it down!


Ahem. The Designer frowns upon being blamed for it. It's practically... Inthorbordination! :^D

Or it was a result of someone's earlier less than enthusiastic support of Thor.

All Hail Thor.

+ many MK

I have serious doubts about those who scream a problem but refuse to confront the actual issue and only want to make ineffectual steps towards a solution.

This morning I made my first post-diagnosis run to the grocery store. It wasn't
too difficult to find things I can eat. I did buy a few of the Atkins meals and
snacks. Stayed away from their pizza and pasta, as TimeLord suggested. I'm sure
it'll get easier but for now my dominant thought is: I'm going to need more
money. :-(

;-)

Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control. Portion control.

When you get to the class they should be enrolling you in you will learn it doesn't have to be expensive, but you can make it that way if you wish.

Perhaps https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmermann_Telegram

"Zimmermann sent the telegram in anticipation of the resumption of unrestricted submarine warfare by Germany on 1 February, an act the German government presumed would almost certainly lead to war with the United States."

"The proposal was intercepted and decoded by British intelligence. Revelation of the contents enraged American public opinion and helped generate support for the United States declaration of war on Germany in April of the same year."

Just thank God, that the vast majority are doing their job in a professional manner.
Majority likely; vast, doesn't appear so, especially as there seem to be all too few reports from officers of abuses they see other officers commit.

Hi Gary...

I do find your thought processes very interesting.

How under reported is the crime of rape? As rape is a "power" crime, why do you feel that the "power" crime of police abuse is also not under reported by a similar amount?

Still isolationist until early 1917. Woodrow Wilson won his 2nd term after pledging to keep the US out of the war in Europe.

The US only entered the fray after Germany resumed unrestricted submarine warfare.

If it wasn't for that, maybe the outcome & future of Europe would be much different than what it was. Who knows, maybe different right to this day.
