Glad to hear you found an escape from Fresno for a short while. Otherwise there is this cultural pinnacle http://www.undergroundgardens.com/

Seen it. It was kind of freaky.

In fact, I'm pretty sure we've seen just about everything there is to see in the greater Fresno area - the zoo, the air museum, the Fossil Discovery Center (it's worth seeing!), the Big Dog Grill (good pulled pork) etc.

Eric and I were in Fresno this weekend visiting relatives. Our niece and nephew there, ages 13 and 16 respectively, wanted to see the new Spiderman movie. Although neither Eric nor I had any great desire to see the movie, it was about 106 degrees in Fresno and movie theaters are air conditioned, so we took the kids to see the movie.

Honestly, it was not bad. It was cute and I found myself laughing several times throughout the movie. I would recommend it to anybody who has teenage children, nieces, nephews etc. I would also highly recommend it to anybody who teaches high school. Although the movie does poke a little fun at high school teachers, it does so in a playfully gentle manner.

Nope. I've never seen any of the Spiderman movies.

You haven't missed a thing.

... but I think about my mother and my dad(who died 35 years ago), and I wonder what I'm supposed to do now. What's my purpose in life, now?

Gordon, even though I never knew your parents, I think that I can say with about 99.99% certainty that when you were born, your parents didn't look down at you in your crib and say, "Gosh, I hope Gordon's sole purpose in life is to take care of us someday. Then he will have fulfilled his destiny."

Rather, I'm betting that your parents looked down at you in your crib, smiled and imagined all the wonderful life experiences you would have, from cradle to grave.

It is still so close to your mother's passing that you may not be able to explore options easily right now.

I just hope that, with the passage of time, you will find it in your heart to give yourself permission to continue to have a life full of experiences, rather than a life full of memories.

Wishing you peace, friend.

Suzie, if you would like this thread moved from the Cafe to one of the Science forums, just pm the mod list.

Perhaps we might leave this thread in the Cafe for a week or so, then move it to maximize readership.

... cats love you.

Sometimes, I think they do.

Spawnie loves Eric and tolerates me.
Joker loves me and tolerates Eric.
Riddler loves both of us, but nobody outside of the two of us.
Eva loves everybody; she never met a house guest or a visitor to our home that she did not love.
Stinky Lou loves nobody. She will tolerate our presence in "her" home, so long as we keep her food bowl filled, the water in "Lake Coffee Table" fresh, and Her Majesty's box tidily scooped.

Darn cats.

Joker wanted out-out-out slightly before 6 this morning, so I join the group that is up too early on a Sunday because of a cat.

I suspect that food has little effect on clinical depression except in specific circumstances.

+1


I have no doubt that food has a real effect in the lives of ALL people regardless of health issues and good food will always benefit the unhealthy.

+1



Trying to pin a specific condition on food consumption is much like trying to nail jelly to a tree. There are soooooooooooooo many variables involved that you never really know if you've actually got something pinned down.

I can think of several physical conditions (scurvy, kwashiokor, rickets) that directly stem from malnutrition, but processed foods are often fortified with vitamins and minerals and processed foods, generally, are calorie rich. The human body can do much to compensate for poor nutrition, if provided with sufficient calories.

Human beings are truly omnivores. I have read that there are specific groups of indigenous people in Alaska who, historically, lived primarily on whale blubber. Talk about a poor/restrictive diet!!!


Do I think that poor/highly restrictive diets are optimal for general health? No.

Do I think that "real food" is better than highly processed foods, for the promotion of general physical and mental health? Yes.

Do I think that consumption of processed foods causes or exacerbates clinical depression. No.

Do I think that the factors that tend to correlate highly with a diet high in processed foods (low socio-economic status, reduced educational attainment, limited economic opportunity) can impact mental health? Yes.


I just don't want to confuse correlation with causality.

How many books about HH did he finally write?

Eleven. I'm just starting the first, but we bought the whole series. When Ol'Pookers and I are done reading the series, we're passing the books along to a niece, age thirteen and a nephew, age 16. After they read them, if they don't want to keep them, they can donate them to a library.
